We, therefore, offer a platform for the masses to express their views, opinions, resentments, appreciations and constructive criticism of the in leadership and policies of government.

Above all, the paper would promote commerce and business and bring returns on investment; we would also partner with all the stakeholders at various communities for the benefit of mankind. 

We understand the feelings of the people and we would give expression to it through this medium.
