Adieu, The True Unifier, Emir Mustapha Agwai 1 And Lessons For Nigerian Leaders

His Highness Alhaji Mustapha Agwai, the 16th ruler of the historic town of Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State of Nigeria finally closed his eyes at about 1pm on Thursday, 10th January 2019, at the Turkish Hospital, Idu, Abuja.

Consequently, we now have more of the gain politicians than the game ones.

Bayelsa Tower Hotel Still A 'Monument Of Disgrace

Along the Isaac Boro Expressway in Yenagoa, the capital city of Bayelsa State is an imposing, uncompleted 18 storey edifice. The gigantic building stands tall and is strategically situated at a position whereby, upon completion, will further reveal the aesthetics of Yenagoa city. The abandoned edifice overlooks the first flyover constructed by the restoration government of Seriake Dickson. The skyscraper also has a side view that faces the dual carriage way that leads to the Bayelsa Palm. It promises to be a sight to behold when completed.
