1 And on that day when the Super Eagles had gathered in the burning bush against the Ethiopians of the eastern Desert, Keshi, the leader of the delegates gave directions to the people, but they listened not.
2 And Keshi knowing what awaited him at Abuja knelt down in his heart and cried unto the heaven saying “My God, my God, please do not forsake me, give me only one chance.”
3 As soon as he spoke those words, the Lord heard his cry, and the Holy Spirit descended on the burning bush in the south of Africa where the men had gathered and said to Moses the Son of Victor, “Moses, go yea forth into the 18 yard box of the Ethiopians.”
4 And Moses hearkened unto the voice of the lord and ran into the 18 yard box of the Ethiopians. and behold, a defender of the Ethiopian Army brought him down and caused a penalty.
Prince Charles has attacked British schools for failing to install ‘character’ in pupils and making them virtually unemployable.
The Prince said the education system is leaving children bereft of vital life skills and unable to develop the confidence needed to develop into successful adults. While conceding the importance of academic education, Charles stressed pupils need to be taught to cope with the world that awaits them if they were to have a chance of getting a job.
The Nigerian Catholic Church says it has ‘temporarily’ withdrawn its membership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in order to promote Christian unity and peaceful coexistence amongst Christians and non-Christians alike.
A spokesperson of the Church, Rev. Fr. Dr.
Cornelius Omonokhua, said the action taken by the Catholic Church will be reviewed after the annual meeting of the Conference of Bishops in February.
It is worrisome that the anti-graft body has failed to make public its findings over a year now after confirming that
investigation was ongoing, with the promise that many more arrests were likely to be made then. It smacks of a cover-up that
nothing has been heard since the EFCC extended invitations to three serving commissioners in Lagos State, namely Rotimi
Agunsoye of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs; Rotimi Oyekan of Finance and Jide Idris of Health. Also invited by the
EFCC in connection with the corruption allegations filed by the True Face of Lagos is the Special Assistant to Fashola on Works and Infrastructure, Ganiu Johnson. Read the rest of this entry
14. Several other buyers of Federal Government properties and developers of properties in Ikoyi, Victoria Island and
Government Reservation Area Ikeja were forced to succumb to the outrageous demands of Tinubu, Fashola, Commissioner
Abosede and other officials of the Lagos State Physical Planning Ministry and were made to pay ridiculous amounts to private
accounts before their redevelopments were approved. Those who refused or were unable to pay could not develop their
properties. This is a major economic strangulation of property developers and has contributed largely to the skyrocketing rent in Ikoyi, VI and Lekki axis.
15. Tinubu converted all the plots of land where Lagos Polytechnic was located at Ikosi near the old toll gate. He chased away
the Polytechnic in 2006 and went ahead to locate the choice plots to himself, his cronies and political associates. The
headquarters of Television Continental (TVC), which is owned by him, is located there. He deprived the youths of Lagos of decent education because of his greed.
SAN FRANCISCO, November 27, (THEWILL) – A contractor (name withheld) needed to collect his payment for a contract he
executed for the Lagos State Government. Having met a brick wall everywhere he went in the pursuit of his payment, his boon
came up with a quick-fix. “Let’s go and see the ‘Lion of Bourdillon,’” he suggested to his contractor-friend.
The contractor and his friend eventually managed to arrange a meeting with the ‘Lion’ at his Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi residence in
the wee hours of the day. And as the ‘Lion’ listened to the contractor as he narrated his story, it was apparent that he was
tired as all he could do in response was to yawn as he dragged himself from his chair.
“Lagos is tired,” the ‘Lion’ muttered, walking towards his bedroom, adding, “Eko wants to rest,” without minding his guests.
The bewildered contractor and his friend were confused as to what to do next as the ‘Lion’ banged the door behind them and
went off to sleep. Some aides of the ‘Lion’ however advised the early-morning visitors to come back later that day and preferably at midnight.

The Nigerian intelligence community appears unravelled by the latest maneuverings of the Boko Haram. Sources close to the Nigerian intelligence community reveal there are strong indications that agents of Boko Haram recently dispatched snipers to the North East region of Nigeria – with a changed focus towards targeted killings and/or assassinations of persons considered prized targets.
