The pen is indeed mightier than the sword, more devastating than the bullet and more smashing than the sledgehammer!! If you doubt me, put it into the hands of Collins Ughalaa. You cannot but confirm the aphorism. But you know what? Hide your head as soon as you do that to avoid being the first victim! Hahahahahaha!!

In Ughalaa exists a formidable giant and warrior in the battlefield of journalism. He is not among the noisy folks that deafen the ears sequel to little impacts! Yet he has traversed the length and breadth of the noble profession doing amazing and tremendous exploits and impacts felt beyond the shores of the nation without attendant noise!
Ughalaa's works are so persuasive and incisive that some are captured by top prestigious magazines in the world. I am 'talking' about the likes of New York Times!!! Are you amazed?....He is a super colossus! That is why The Oracle, a national newspaper has him in their team!!
Without fear of contradiction, I make bold to say, he is among the select few that has the capacity to step into the shoes of veterans and legends like the late Dele Giwa, Reuben Abati etc! His ingenuity, adeptness, adroitness and approach are so striking! To say the least the Oguta born journalist has mastered the ethics and ethos of the noble profession! No sensationalism; no calumny and no bitterness! He puts it as it is!! He lives up to his name Ughalaa which means away with falsehood! He is an advocate of truth, standing thereon no matter whose ox is gored! Ughalaa does not want you money if it means compromising ideology or ethics!!!!!
When he takes up the pen, he sends tensions and jitters in dubious camps! It is so because, they can't withstand his articulations, arguments and line of thought. Show me the politician in Imo State that is not afraid of Ughalaa, then I will show you one who is upright in his dealings!!
Today, this guru of journalism is celebrating his birthday. I therefore join his family, friends, colleagues, associates, numerous admirers, and well wishers to celebrate an accomplished icon!!
Collins Ughalaa, to say the least, you are a pride to Imo state! As you celebrate your birthday today, I wish you more ink to your pen, more words to your arsenal, more inspirations to your lines, more wealth to your empire and more years to your life span! Above all, keep on wielding the weapon of pen! It is the lion's roar that keeps the antelopes in their hiding!! Happy birthday great journalist of our time!!!
