This is a site dedicated to the intelligent discussion of pressing issues mostly affecting Nigeria, but from time to time we may discuss events in other countries, perhaps in relation to Nigeria. Naturally, these discussions will be political, historical, and/or economic in nature. We know that political issues/discussions tend to be heated, especially among Nigerians, but we expect contributors to make well-reasoned, intelligent contributions, while remaining cordial. Certainly comments and articles are welcome but, they will be reviewed before publishing. So, please desist from broad-brush tribal/ethnic/religious derogatory remarks. Yes, you can name names, even qualify them with anger-infused adjectives, but present your views with cogent facts. In other words, this is not the place for provocateurs.
