Alhaji Abubakar Rimi may mean well for NdiIgbo

FRANCIS NNAMDI ELEKWACHI (Nigeriaworld) - Every peoples have a right to self-determination within the sovereignty of their existing country, under International Laws and Convenants.

Igbos and the parable of the Incarnates
RUDOLF OKONKWO Lynn, MA, USA (Nigeriaworld) - All men who committed suicide do not reincarnate. But Okonkwo did. Not only did he choose to be born in the land that brought destruction to his society, he shocked the gods of Umuofia more by coming out from the womb of an Osu.
