About a decade ago, it was Halliburton, an American oil service company, which got indicted for nefarious activities in Nigeria. Whereas it was made to pay huge fine at home for the infractions in Nigeria, not only did it escape any charge here, all Nigerian Big Men implicated in the documents through which it was penalized in the United States are still walking the streets freely in Nigeria today.

Ghost dollars, grotesque state By Louis Odion, FNGE

Ex-Ghanaian President Jerry John Rawlings....Wold this kind of a thing happen a country governed by him?

Like a typical Shakespearean comedy, the great dollar find in Lagos penultimate Thursday following a whistle blower's tip-off seems to have inadvertently bequeathed to the public space a slew of memorable jokes - some quite libelous.
In the ensuing orgy of finger-pointing, someone would ask that his quarry be made to excrete more of the alleged loot so that the latter's now recognizable bulging pot-belly - very much like advanced pregnancy - could return to normal.
In response, the addressee would declare that such allegation could only emanate from the erratic imagination of a psychiatric patient unable to adhere strictly to his medication regimen - clearly a poignant innuendo at his accuser, well known to have survived some mental health challenge in the past.

The GDA wants you to know the truth and be set free
The business of whistle-blowing is something that is now picking up in Nigeria as a result of the various manners the new anti-corruption policy of President Muhammad Buhari is helping Nigeria to become a better country. It is on record that during his campaign in 2015, President Buhari and his Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo drove on the mantra of killing corruption as one of their three agendas which include security and poverty alleviation. However, knowing his antecedent as an anti-corruption czar, President Buhari brought the WHISTLE BLOWING policy as his number one anti-corruption policy.

Easter Sunday Sermon: Gbogbo Wa L’ole

Prophet (Dr.) MKO Tibetan, CCC, Elisha Parish (Europe & Nigeria)

Today, Nigeria as a country dangles between colossal looting of the treasury by the elites and the unbearable condition of living for the masses; hence death by suicide. The book of John 10 verse 10 says ‘The Thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life; and they may have it more abundantly’.
With the recent discoveries of looted funds in various shady places and destinations around the country, Nigerians have come to realize that their political leaders came into power with the motive to steal, kill and destroy lives. If the commonwealth meant for the benefit of the majority is stolen and kept in the houses of few elites, thereby throwing majority into hardship to the level of jumping into lagoons, then we are in trouble.

Dogara Vs el-Rufai: A-looter continua... By Louis Odion, FNGE

Speaker Yakubu Dogara....Came hot under Governor Nasir El-Rufai's fire

Though elegant-sounding and seemingly mouthful, the word "subterfuge" actually connotes and denotes something far from noble - treachery.
It describes a bid to draw a red herring and, in the context of an argument, disrupt the opponent's stream of consciousness by smuggling a diversionary matter into the loop. 
One cannot find a better word to classify the war of pay slips that erupted in the past few days between Nasir el-Rufai, the feisty Kaduna governor, and the otherwise dour-faced House of Reps Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.
What began as a genial altercation between the duo at a public forum in Kaduna last weekend on the relativity of gluttony between the executive and legislative branches soon degenerated to the artillery of vouchers.

Lagos Pastor loses Multi Million Naira Choir Instruments to Robbers

Family and Love ones at Pa Sunday Agbonnavbare Igiebor's Grave @ Iguakolo

Recall the story of the Benin Couple, Pa. Sunday Igiebor and his pretty wife, Veronica that  broke on this blog couple of weeks back. Their love even in death took root in the two Biblical verses  of the book of Songs of Solomon Chapter 8 verse 7 and Proverbs chapter 23 verse 18;  “Many Waters cannot quench love, nor can the floods drown it. If a man would give for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly despised”.  Proverbs, 23 verse 18 “For surely there is a hereafter, and your hope will not be cut off”.
Those verses  illustrated the divine love that exist between the Edo State born couple who died sixteen days apart last year. It was the woman, Madam Veronica Igiebor who first passed away on Wednesday November 16, 2016. She was aged 57. Her husband, Pa. Sunday Igiebor joined sixteen days later on Friday, December 2nd, 2016. He was aged 66.

7 different situations that make Nigerians commit Suicide + Why The Church & Government cannot help

The GDA in The Other Room...

I had wanted to make this article a ‘Facebook comment’ but changed my mind because i wanted it on a larger platform for all and sundry to read and learn few tips.
Few days ago I promised to lend my own voice to the horrible suicide adventures going around in town among Nigerians. In the last couple of weeks and months, it has been one sad tale of suicide gesture or the other among Nigerians.
It started like a rumor last year, that people were actually jumping into rivers and lagoons to take their own lives over serious challenges of life which includes inability to pay house rents, inability to pay children’s school fees, inability to have a quality medical care or even enjoy a quality living standard and loss of jobs among many others. So people take their own lives abruptly just to save face from shame and boredom. What a misery?

What we lost with journalism of Osoba era—Sam Amuka-Pemu + Why Osoba drinks only Coke

Chief Sam Amuka-Pemu, Publisher, Vanguard Newspapers

Sam Amuka-Pemu chairman and publisher of the Vanguard Newspaper has become a Nigerian newspaper legend. Amuka-Pemu started his journalism career in the early 60s and edited Sunday Times before moving to pioneer The Punch Newspaper in the mid-seventies with the founder, Chief Olu Aboderin. He wrote the famous ‘Sad Sam’ column which had a large following in the late sixties and the seventies. With his bogus cap and a pipe shooting out of his lips) Sad Sam regaled his readers with his incisive and satiric commentaries. Sometimes, he veered from commentary to reportorial columns—reporting on people he had met and events in which he was a participant. In Europe and America, columnists write even in their old age,but not so in Nigeria. The old columnists of yesteryears have all retired from column writing. And  that includes Sam Amuka-Pemu who stopped his column decades ago to focus on the business side of journalism.

Sunday Sermon: Heaven & Hell is real & 34 Ways Church Leaders finished Nigerians

In a ministration mood; Prophet (Dr.) MKO Tibetan & his interpreter

Brethren in Christ, when last have we heard from Rev. Dr.  Obadare the leader of WOSEM, Moses Orimolade the founder of  Cherubim and Seraphim, it is quite a long time. Mark Chapter 13 shows that heaven and hell is real. Jesus said in the verse that in my father’s house, there are many mansions there. This shows that Jesus came from somewhere i.e. heaven. As a Pastor, General Overseer, Prophet, how are you preparing for your home? Because it is very easy to miss the road now since you are in your comfort zone, so for this good reason you need to work hard. Despite the fact that you cannot leave your shadow, the camera man will expose you and your picture will never tell lies because it is like your computer flash drive, whatever you loaded on it will come up again.
