By Emmanuel Chukwu The Monday November 26 edition of the White-paper newspaper had a back page article with the title “CHARLES AMADI (CHAVON) MAKING HIS OWN UGLY POLITICAL HISTORY” written by Sam Onwuemeodo. As lacking in decency and grace as the article was, one could have ignored it, but for the obvious fact that it was a rabid, rancid ranting capable of misleading the author to bask in the illusion of journalistic achievement, if ignored, compelled this writer to embark on this corrective indulgence to clip the narration of its deceitful wings. Indeed a proper education on the issues raised prompted this corrective measure to prevent its possible repeat in the future if ever the author understood the weighty implications of such offensive outing to himself, his target and of course the general public who may have consumed the deceitful portion with misleading consequences. It is a sacred fact among journalism scholars and professional tutored on tort that the use of disparagin

Fasehun, the paper said, died in the early hours of Saturday at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja. "The octogenarian, it was learnt, was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital on Tuesday where he remained until his demise," the report said.

Imo Guber, Okorocha’s Aides, Imo Assembly Members Defect to DPP

At last, Imo State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, yesterday announced the movement of his son-in-law, Mr. Uche Nwosu, other aides and members of the State House of Assembly from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Democratic People’s Party (DPP). Okorocha, who spoke with journalists at the Government House, Owerri, however, promised to work for the victory of Nwosu as the next governor of the state in 2019 even as he remained in the APC as its candidate for Orlu Senatorial District. He also accused the APC governorship candidate in the state, Senator Hope Uzodinma, of duping the deputy governor, Mr. Eze Madumere, former Secretary to the State Government, Mr. George Eche, and his predecessor, Mr. Jude Ejiogu, from the governorship ticket. According to him, what happened in APC primaries in many states presents interesting scenario as the party he said is known for justice, equity and fairness has been dented by the National Chairman, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole. He said, “What hap


CHURCHILL OKONKWO You are a symbol of the past failures and the politically corrupt in Nigeria. With all due respect, therefore, I, on behalf of millions of Nigerians want to remind you that you should shut up when we are discussing anti-corruption challenges and the way forward. I laughed cynically when I heard you brag that you would “shock everyone because you will fight corruption …if given the opportunity to preside over the affairs of the country.” You challenged Nigerians to either “come forward with a single shred of evidence of [your] misconduct while in office or keep quiet.” Crude arrogance! You subsequently bragged that your stupendous wealth was a result of your “resourcefulness and successful investments". What a lie! To use your own words, that display of arrogance was “morally offensive” to millions of Nigerians. Please, sir, accept my apologies, but the issue is not about your “entrepreneurial spirit” *but whether you can corroborate the SOURCE of your investme


Ladies and gentlemen of the press Protocols. Let me start by thanking you members of the fourth estate for your commitment in the course of democracy in our dear state Imo and indeed Nigeria at this trying moments of our beleaguered history. It is a well known fact that PDP occupies the soul of the Imo electorate which has made the last gubernatorial primary election conducted in the state on the 1st of October a festering sore that has refused to leave us unless resolved to the satisfaction of the ever discerning Imo electorate. I want to submit, very sadly too, that the impunity and manipulations that greeted the governorship primary election of the party has left many party faithful disappointed and sullen hearted as to resort to seeking remedy in the court of law to determine the real winner of the said PRIMARY election. Majority of our party faithful in the state believe that PDP in Imo should get it right before it can face up to the challenges of not only unseating the incu
