1          Nigeriaworld Feature Article - The dearth of society in Nigeria and our children's future

For those of us who profess to be Christians or indeed humanists and adherents of other religions words alone fail to give a vivid description of what was shown in the documentary [Video Links Provided]. In a society where ignorance, poverty, squalor are common place this is should not come as a surprise. However evil towards children should never be condoned.

2          Nigeriaworld Feature Article - The Africa in us and the message of Barack Obama's victory

November 4 in the year of our Lord 2008 is a landmark date in the history of race relations in the United States in particular and the world in general. This day no doubt marks a day that would stand out as one of days when you would be asked where you were on the day Barack Obama was elected to the office of the President of the United States of America.

3          Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Living in the throes of Nigeria's Constitutional Dictatorship

The fact of the matter is that under the provisions of the constitution there is nothing preventing the present holder of the office from parading himself as the Vice President as conditions under section 144 of the Constitution which states the process that the Vice President may cease to hold office does not currently suffice.

4          Nigeriaworld Feature Article - The impeachment process, ouster clauses, non-justiciable provisio

What were the circumstances in which six members of the [Oyo State] house were suspended? Was their suspension a breach of the Constitution? I am of the opinion that where there is a breach in the stages laid out in Section 188 including the purported suspension of House members then it follows that any actions arising from such impeachment process is fatally flawed.

8          Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Contrasting perspectives to SLA's vision

I do not see what there is to rehabilitate, refurbish and acknowledge in SLA's vision. History was unkind to him because he was not alive to explain the reasons for the change in his ideology. However to conclude that OBJ's mandate is greatly influenced by SLA's vision...is a misunderstanding....

9          Nigeriaworld Feature Article - The Hysteria of Yoruba bashing - a rejoinder to Abdulrazaque Bell
