Circle of Influence…
GBENGA OWOTOKI, Florida, USA
No matter how great a value is, once you multiply by zero, it reduces it to nothing and when you multiply by one it leaves the number unchanged.

You can't fulfill The Lord's purpose and will for your life without marriage
MOSHOOD FAYEMIWO, Cameron, Texas, USA
There is nowhere in the entire Holy Bible that the True Lord God Almighty told His own to live a single life in order to carry out His purpose and will for our lives?

Analog Nigeria in a digital age (1)
TEMPLE C. UBOCHI, Bonn, Germany
Because Nigeria remains an analog country when other countries, which are doing fine, have moved into the digital age, was the reason an analog president was elected in this 21st century. How can we elect a president, who is at his best, an all round illiterate - a president who turns a laptop upside down; a president who doesn't know that East and West Germany unified in 1990....

Dr. Ekwueme's political base was swelling day by day and that made Governor Jim Nwobodo of Anambra state to be extremely uncomfortable to the extent that he called for the termination of the NPN/NPP accord. At that time there was high demand for the creation of more states in the country.
The Catholic bishops' visit to President Buhari
TEMPLE C. UBOCHI, Bonn, Germany
The Bishops should now go back to their respective congregations and prepare them against the impending Jihad the Fulanis will unleash in Nigeria.

Nothing is new
Fr. PAT AMOBI CHUKWUMA
Recently I went to a popular market in Nigeria and bought two shirts and two pairs of trouser. They were well ironed and concealed in transparent plastic pack. The seller convinced me that they were new clothes and the latest in the market. The measurements were conspicuously written on the pack.
Are the Nigerian governors' forum and national executive council undemocratic faces of the mutating Nigerian democracy?
E O EKE, UK
The government of Nigeria continues to behave in ways that lead credence to the assertion of some critics that it excels in the perverse. The latest is the activities of the governors' forum which continues to show that they have an agenda that is different from what the majority of Nigerians would vote for if given a chance.

The catalyst for a new order
JEROME-MARIO UTOMI
Keeping issues where they are, this non-possession of sound education has made it pretty difficult for some leaders to differentiate between politics and leadership. A situation that has resulted in our leaders playing politics all the way while relegating leadership to the background.
The Buhari Kakistocracy and the way forward
AONDUNA TONDU, New York, USA
Today, Buhari's name is synonymous with tragic failure in almost every critical ramification of governance. Notwithstanding the shrill, bad-mannered, often half-baked and cantankerous rationalizations of its spokespersons, the Buhari regime has, through its actions and inactions, sought to shrink our public spaces by inflicting a debilitating legacy of self-serving, narrow-minded, dubious....

February - My Month of Victory Over Sin (Part 2)
Pastor AMOS D. DADA, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Buhari, the Comprachichios of Nigeria politics
E O EKE, UK
Buhari is destroying the rule of law, in the same way comprachicos deform the face and body of their victims and his action is encouraging the emergence of a police state.

YAHAYA BALOGUN, Arizona, USA
