Yet, the present administration chose to make light of the whole matter, pretending that a visit from Americaâ€™s first black president was no more or, perhaps, was worth less than a jaunt to a PDP retreat in Obudu.Read More
Incline your ear, and come unto me; hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of Davidâ€ (Isaiah 55:1-3). The currency of the Kingdom is the death of Jesus Christ. His blood is the propitiation for our sins. His resurrection purchases for us justification (Romans 4:25). God himself assures us prosperity.Read More
The situation becomes even more curious when you recognize that the same CBN who is borrowing from the banks at more than 6% is also the same one guaranteeing interbank placements without the control meter of each bankâ€™s reserve and gilt edge holdings! This also raises questions as to the $7bn shared between 14 banks by CBN under hitherto undisclosed terms.Read More
When the crisis in the state took a turn whereby the political interests of Governor Daniel and Alausa were no longer in uniform alignment, Alausa deserted and joined Danielâ€™s enemies. In anger and retaliation, Daniel decided to expose Alausa and caused his newspaper to spin the yarn that it did with such relish that Monday.Read More
â€œIs that Treena? This is Nkem. No, no, donâ€™t say a word. I apologize profusely for the bad way I behaved in Lome today at your hotel. I donâ€™t know what came over me. I normally donâ€™t lose my cool that way and become physical.â€ Not true!Read More
First, the solution to the crisis in Nigerian public education is not in
the creating of more second rate degree mills that have neither reason nor rhyme. It is in the proper funding, planning, and elevation of existing public universities. Second, it must be emphasized that not everybody currently in the university is made for university education.
The ombudsman is a monitor of the observance of rules set in a polity for the operation of its affairs. The modern use of the term began in Sweden, according to Wikipedia Free Encyclopedia, with the Swedish Parliamentary Ombudsman instituted in 1809, to safeguard the rights of citizens by establishing a supervisory agency independent of the executive branch.Read More
The Jews believe that they were chosen specially by their tribal God, Yaweh, for a divine purpose, from the races of humankind, whereas Muslims have an unusually high opinion about Arabs and the Arabic language.Read More
They were still shaking their heads after we returned at about 7.00 p.m that evening. From what I saw and heard, it is clear that the JTF might win the present and other battles, but it might not win the war. As David Neustadt, had pointed out in his engaging book, Power and Presidents, â€œthe only battle that counts is the last one.â€ The JTF, like the Americans in Vietnam, might win a lot of battles but the last one is not yet in sight and it is doubtful that victory will be theirs.Read More
And that was the way it was, until I linked up with this cherub-faced bundled of sheer music, with every fibre of him a sweet, sweet sound â€“ Michael Jackson. I canâ€™t remember when I first heard him, but I do remember the song â€“ â€œ1-2-3″, a song for the young which left the old calling for an encore. He was fronting the â€œJackson Fiveâ€, and the driving seat suited him to a â€œtâ€.Read More
At least, MEND is saying, â€˜give us the kind of development that you have in Abuja and we would be satisfiedâ€™.
In response to this, the government is creating institutions like the Niger Delta Development Corporation (NDDC) through which to channel this development in the Niger Delta. On top of that, it has created a ministry for the region which at best is a bureaucracy.
Some do argue with justification and a good sense of history that the structure of the countryâ€™s edifice is so deficient that even angels from heaven would find it impossible to manage. Of all the worldâ€™s political contrivances in the 20th century, only Nigeria still stands since 1914 as a united country by divine grace. Other countries, even in Europe, have broken into several states.Read More
Please allow us to advise the G8 and President Yarâ€™Adua on what needs to be done to bring about immediate peace in the Niger Delta region, and thus secure the oil and gas resources you all need: YARâ€™ADUA MUST IMMEDIATELY COMMENCE THE HOLISTIC IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE TECHNICAL COMMITTEE ON THE NIGER DELTA!!! Yarâ€™Adua has not shown sincerity to the issues raised by Niger Delta peoples. He keeps contemptuously treating them like moronic babies who cannot tell shadow from reality.Read More
I would rather campaign for our own than personally promoting them unless such promotions are intended to make our people learn. But it must, therefore be in proper perspective. I may not impress many who chant foreign clubs, fight for them, engage in all sorts of showmanship but have no link with these clubs. Many of them are just noise makers and not real fans of the clubs they claim to adore.Read More
Secondly, pretences that there was no coup cannot hold water. There is no evidence to prove that his removal by soldiers was a directive of the Supreme Court as no known order existed. This claim was made only after the coup. So in all probability, the so called order allegedly signed by a Supreme Court judge was an after-thought, a back-dated document.Read More
