Nnamdi Kanu is like Ojukwu, By Fredrick Nwabufo

Nnamdi Kanu is like Ojukwu, By Fredrick Nwabufo I just watched a video of “Nnamdi Kanu in Israel”.  And truly, it was him.

The Igbo eat their own, By Fredrick Nwabufo

The Igbo eat their own, By Fredrick Nwabufo That the Igbo are in a political freeze is largely due to their own “sleight of hand”; that they are in disarray is because they never agree.
