By Sunday ITODO and Godwin AMEH

MARK: Fears for Idoma
The people of Idoma were recently shocked when the Senate President, David Mark affirmed that they should burry the hope of ruling Benue State. The Okpokpowulu of Idomaland warned his people not to be deceived by thinking that an Idoma man would take over the mantle of leadership from the incumbent Governor, Gabriel Suswam in 2015.

Pastor Ali Adams

“Behold a virgin shall be with a child and shall bring forth a son and they shall call his name Immanuel which being interpreted God with us”, (Matt. 1:23).

One of the main purposes why He came is to be with us. He has come to be with us, in time of trouble, sickness, lack, poverty, etc. He has promised not to leave us alone nor abandon us. “Lo, I am with you always”. This abiding character motivates me to be more committed to Him, to serve Him continually.

OPINION: How to Overcome Corruption in Nigeria

By Luke Akor

Corruption comes in different ways at different levels. Corruption includes stealing of public funds meant for development, misappropriation of funds, refusal to release funds for projects that would be of importance to the public, illegal appropriation of funds to an institution in a legal way for personal aggrandizement and for people’s cheap favour and so many other ways that hamper the growth of economy.

ADVERTORIAL: Politics Should Not Be a Subject of Insult but a Wheel of Ideals for Meaningful Development


Dear Concerned Youths,

As the political temperature rises in the country, and decent and constructive political discourse gives way to indecent personal attacks and insults, because of the looming 2015 Presidential and Gubernatorial elections, it is proper that every opportunity is seized to remind the concerned youth of Nigeria of the crucial role they are to play in all the political parties as far as organization and implementation of political strategies are concerned.

It is also important that the youths are reminded that they should strive to ensure for the sake of Nigeria and her people that the elections are free, fair, transparent and peaceful. Decent language and good behaviour is what is expected of all citizens especially the youths.

Every concerned Nigerian youth must unite to resist election rigging and imposition of candidates on us. Let us at all times, inform and educate the populace on issues that will promote national unity, entrench our political and democratic strength.

The right of every citizen to vote as entrenched in the constitution must be respected. It is not a privilege but a RIGHT. And our demand for judicious delivery of democratic dividends and values should not be visited with attacks, insults and acrimony.

The seat of power is not a preserve for any particular group of people, state or region and it is constitutionally made for all Nigerians without questionable character.

Government officials should at all times avoid comments or posts on social / electronic media that demonstrates lack of modicum of integrity, negligence and disrespect to Nigerian youths.

Noble C.C. Adaelu,

But as for you,
