Catholic priests in Nigeria have always captured the public imagination, some of them have served in government positions, some were prominent in the fight and struggle for democracy, some of them have proved their mettle as poets, teachers, musicians, social critics, and public affairs commentators, but Rev. Fr. Ejike Camillus Anthony Ebenezer Mbaka is a cut above the rest, not necessarily in terms of intellect or persona, but in terms of how he has been able to use the pulpit to acquire a rock star status.

This is the official reaction to Blackface's song stealing allegation from 2face Idibia's camp. This is from his manager, Efe Omorogbe. Read below...
When my attention was drawn to Blackface's twitter rant about the "theft" of his songs by his ex-band mate 2Baba, my initial reaction was to ignore what I perceived as an obvious marketing gimmick for his new single. The reaction from a vast majority of people on social media who read about the allegations was evidence that the ploy had backfired.

Anambra has started the exportation of pumpkin leaves (Ugu) and bitter leaves (Onugbu) to the UK.
The first set of the exportation was on the 21st of January, 2016 after the Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture successfully assisted some rural farmers to export the first batch of their products.
This was however after the Federal Quarantine Agency paid several visits to the state to inspect and certify the various farms fit for the purpose. Anambra aims to produce vegetables of high quality without applying fertilizers or any other chemicals, in order to position the State as a top vegetable exporting State.

Very recently, I was hanging out with some of my associates in my house when one of them started reeling out all that is wrong with Naija; the kind of impunity stealing that has taken place.
"A never ending story", I managed to murmur, before one of them exclaimed, "Na God hand we dey"
Which kin God hand we dey? I found myself busting out a yell.
If we leave everything in God's hand, what are we doing to change the blatant rape of the future of our youths or the obnoxious impoverishment of the masses?
There has been so much concern about how the Federal Character principle has since its introduction in 1979, promoted mediocrity within the public service, and retarded national growth and progress. Introduced after the civil war to promote national integration, and to address the fears of sections of the country which felt marginalized, the Federal Character principle was meant to ensure that public service appointments reflect the country’s diversity: religious, ethnic, geographical and linguistic, and by extension, that resource allocation reflects the fact that this is a federal system and not a clan.

My criticisms of the excesses of the online phenomenon in terms of its brazen abuse in an unregulated environment has often made me the target of attacks, with many insisting on quoting the opening paragraph of a piece I once wrote along these lines as if it is a memorial verse, but further developments have shown that indeed, liberal, accommodative, useful and open as the growth of the new media may seem in Nigeria, we may well, if care is not taken, be dealing with a dangerous tool in the hands of the unscrupulous which could drive society towards the lunatic fringe.
My Dearest Diane,
Like joke like joke we both are getting older. Today is your birthday and once again I can't help but to celebrate you in the open, what I have always done for the past 37yrs of our married life. Celebrating our extraordinary life together. I hope that our togetherness over the years have taught some people about perseverance, tolerance, discipline and love.
