President Jonathan's Short Reply to Obasanjo's 18 Page Missive - Is it Too Late For Nigeria?

Posted in: , , ,

Nigeria, oh Nigeria. Which way our country? I call the letter short because President Jonathan did not write 18 pages, just 10 reasons for replying former president Obasanjo, and 50 paragraphs to rebut the key issues raised. Two comments,
1. Jonathan is only concerned about maintaining his integrity and not on whether he's really working, but he says he's working sha.
2. Jonathan asks for evidence of high corruption and then alludes to questionable waivers Obasanjo signed. I ask, why hasn't Obasanjo explained those waivers to Mr. President, or better still, the EFCC?

The Future Awards And Its Misrepresentation Of The Nigerian Youth By Gimba Kakanda

Posted in: , , ,

By Gimba Kakanda

"I have absolute confidence in the strength and ability of the Nigerian youth. All over the world, the Nigerian youth is a newsmaker, known for exhibiting talent, using his brain either to redeem or to reduce whichever system he is in. The Nigerian youth, despite having bad role models, has defied setbacks and limitations to climb up the ladder of excellence. This is why I am among the many upset by the misrepresentation of their achievements by the sham called "The Future Awards" – an award which was designed to highlight these achievements, but has been reduced to rewarding the ‘efforts’ of the organisers and their friends and friends of their friends!

Posted in: , ,

I remember that one of my expectations when I moved to Edinburgh for my masters was seeing snow, and possibly playing in it. My first experience of snow turned out to be a mountain climbing trip since it didn't really snow that winter.
