While we do everything to put our name in the good book within the global community, after the great damage done to us all by Mutallab. We must also learn lessons from the the way the Americans and the entire world responded to that attempted inhuman act, which shows value for human lives. Talking about terrorism, must one go to Yemen and Afganistan for training or carry loads of explosives waiting to be detonated in an airline or other public places to be classified as terorrist? How can one… Continue

Where is the nation going from here? The godamned president's seat vacant for the next dude,but the dying northern hope won't let his stool occupied by the first African cow-boy who is walking around with a large hat as though he's some kind of red-Idian chief--shame to him and the nation who has not been critical of his Idianmaniac Costume.I mean what's wrong with a smart suit for a Subordinate like him?

I believe it is high time we begin to expose the politicians who are very skilled in looting the treasury for thier selfish interest especially acquiring investment properties in abroad. Charity begins at home, we need all our politicians to come clean and declare their assets.

Today we face the challenge of developing greater confidence, initiative, solution-finding, and problem-solving capabilities amongst our people. The state needs at all levels to be more self-sufficient, resourceful, creative and autonomous. These will make us operate at higher strategic level to enable us become more productive and competitive. People's efforts produce bigger results and this is what we must all strive to achieve to move forward.
Conventional skills training gives… Continue

Studies have shown that more synthetic new chemicals are been produced everyday. At most about 3% of these chemicals have been tested for cancer-causing properties, and even fewer have been tested for hormone disrupting properties. These chemicals have been added to our food supply and more chemical solvents, emulsifiers, and preservatives are being used for food processing.
We ingest hundreds of pounds of food annually that are contaminated by these chemicals. In our lifetime… Continue

Nigeria is a beautiful country with well read people all over. How can a few numbers of people manipulate the system, interpreting the constitution for their selfish interest at the detriment of Nigeria? Why the educated, the statesmen, the free-thinking and the military simply kept quiet is beyond my understanding. With the leadership vacuum in Nigeria and Al’ Qaeda operatives penetrating Nigeria, I believe at this point that Nigeria needs a leader with integrity and a sense of direction.… Continue

Taking a critical look at Mr. Dele Sobowale write up, to me he has a point because I have never seen a stituation whereby a foreigner commits an offence and will be persecuted in another country but the young suicide bomber who has tainted the image of Nigeria deserves to be punished even if Nigeria succeeds in saving his life from the US. My major concern is that Nigeria's image should be redeemed at all cost.
Although, before this incident it has not be easy for Nigerians to… Continue

My brothers' keeper is not only
used literarily, it also has a
literal meaning. That is, as
brothers' keeper means a
responsibility towards ones
friends or neighbours, it also
means a responsibility towards
ones SIBLINGS. And i think the
meaning really starts here.
After all, they say charity
begins at home.
Okay, let's say you turned
wealthy and had a brother or
sister who was basking in
poverty. What do you feel if

I am a new member of the Vanguard Online Community and would want to alert unsuspecting and innocent male members on the existence of fraudsters who pose as female members with or without photographs.
They get your e-mail or name and post a message to you asking you to contact them via e-mail and when you do that, they start giving you some business proposals or even relationship proposals which if you fall victim, yawa go just gas for you.
I have noticed most of these activities on… Continue

It is unfortunate that in the last three decades, terrorism has become a world wide menace. More unfortunate is the notion that most of the terrorist acts are said to be religiously motivated tilting against Islam. The bombing of World Trade Centre, the 1995, the Oklahoma City bombing, several attacks against American targets in Africa, Saudi Arabia in 1995 and 1996, and the one in Beirut, Lebanon in the 80s, the September 11. 2001 tragedy and the December 25 failed attack that would have… Continue

Sometime not too long ago, it seems, in the early 1990s, I was at a London court to help interpret for a young Nigerian who had been charged to the court for armed robbery. I was sure the young Nigeria could speak perfect, if accented, English, but the Crown Prosecution Service decided they could not understand his accent and it would be in his best interest if someone were to interpret for him.
The judge, on hearing the charges, immediately called the Crown Prosecutor to his bench… Continue

I believe now Nigerians will sit and think of a way to paddling the canoe of this great nation towards the desired dreams of her founding fathers, which is based on human emancipation and respect for one another. \
The AbdulMuttalab's case have finally drawn Nigerians to world attention, not of a break through in researches or academic prowess, but for possibly being a country to watch out on the list of countries of art of terrorism. The question persist, who truly is a terrorist? I would… Continue

When an alcoholic beverage maker in Nigeria initiated a campaign to have Nigerian football fans vote for an all time selection for the national team, Finidi George was erroneously selected as the right winger in a 4-4-2 formation. That spot should have gone to Segun Odegbami.
Odegbami, who was nicknamed, mathematical, in reference to his day job as an Engineer, was the peak of the bunch in the first golden age of Nigerian football. A combination of pace, power and a sublime touch… Continue

Sobowale must be an intelectual fraud judging from his misguided article in Vanguard of 4th January 2010. I have never been so insulted in my life as I was yesterday by Dele Sobowale who conveniently chose to re-define terrorism as misguidedness. Who, if I may ask, misguided whom. Was it Sobowale, a University lecturer, who we now know what his lectures are to the young minds in his classrooms or Farouk's father who is so rich that his 23 year old son, whose mates are in NYSC, will never work… Continue

The climatic, hydrological and geotechnical characteristics of the Niger Delta makes infrastructural development relatively difficult and expensive and it require more technical ingenuity and financial commitment than other parts of the country. All the same, the cost of collapse structure and its associated impact cannot be quantified more so, construction is dangerous work and accounts for over one-firth of all occupational fatalities (Center for the protection of worker’s right, 1998) hence… Continue

In recent years there has been increase in incident of sinking (fast settlement) buildings, total collapse and a lot of short life span of structures. These lead to waste of scarce public/private resources. It is important to arrest this trend by promoting the construction of better performing and longer lasting engineering structures. The idea is that constant monitoring and testing throughout the construction phase of project will allow for quick detection and response to construction that is… Continue

■Reusing or waste prevention at source,
■Recycling or resource recovering,
■Energy recovery facilities/refuse derived fuel… Continue
