By Prince Charles Dickson

Just as the year ends many thing comes to my mind but top of the list is the question of Nigeria, a nation so blessed yet in too much peril, that one begins to wonder what really is the problem, what really did or have we done wrong…there are so many questions to little answers.

By Chris Odetunde Ph.D

Dr. Chris OdetundeAdvocacy group, lobbying group or special interest group, loosely or tightly organized, is a group doing advocacy on behalf of citizens to encourage positive or prevent negative changes in public policy without necessarily engaged in trying to be elected.  It is taking awhile for Nigeria to grow from her immature politics to maturity.
