Sovereign National Conference without any representation of the Nigerian Youth going on in Nigeria. Sceptic as to what the result of the conference will be. Any such dialogue in Nigeria or in any part of the world without proper representation of youth, the most active component in any polity, is bound to fail. – Amb. Perry Ndubuisi Idejiora-Kalu

The appointment of an African woman, Catherine Samba-Panza to supervise the transition to democratic rule and stability in the Central African Republic (C.A.R) is indeed a welcome development. At least let us encourage African women politicians to see if they can better what our selfish men leaders have failed to achieve in Africa. Entry of women in African politics should be encouraged. We want more of this in African politics. – Amb. Perry Ndubuisi Idejiora-Kalu, IYC Policy Unit

The appointment of a diplomat, Dr Hassan Rohani as President of the Islamic State of Iran should not be taken in with conclusive optimism.

Africa should strive to attain economic development; this is the single, most viable means of gaining freedom. Complaining and blaming the devil will not bring any solutions. Economic development is not wished; it may be a wish but needs some work to be done to bring it into reality. Thus, industries have to be built, job have to be provided, resources have to be properly managed and its dividends made available to touch the lives of people, security has to be put in place, good people have…Continue
