    By Ndiameeh Babangida Babreek: The False Hyper-Propaganda by Jama’atu Nasir Islam (JNI) Ordinarily one would have thought that as a religious organisation, Jama ‘atu Nasir Islam will be the beacon of truth, honesty and sincerity promoting the truth for peace, justice and a better society. A good scientist will use current data in computing and making analysis for better development. The Pew Research Center known globally for its accuracy has put the Nigeria religious population at 50.8% Christians. The Muslim population was estimated at 48.8%.

    By Farouk Martins Aresa: LAGOS POWER SHOW: FASHOLA v. OBANIKORO What Fashola and Obanikoro are trying to prove can only work to the detriment of the good people of Lagos State. This writer has to disclose his bias against Obanikoro up front. He gave the Yar’Adua Administration an excuse, not the reason, to ditch Bode Augusto for the position of Finance Minister. Lagos lost Finance Administration only to gain Ambassador to Ghana. In this case Obanokoro thinks he has reason to oppose Fashola about sand filling Ilubirin for building a…

  • How plot to block $530m Aba power plant was hatched
    How plot to block $530m Aba power plant was hatched The power brokers behind the delay in the take-off of the $530 million Aba power plant have demonstrated what industry sources describe as greed and short-shortsightedness capable of jeopardising ongoing reforms in the power sector. They include Emeka Offor, major promoter of Interstate Electrics Limited, new owners of Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (Enugu Disco); Namadi Sambo, Nigeria’s vice president; Sam Amadi, executive chairman, Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), and Benjamin Dikki, director-general, Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE). Informed sources say these individuals, through deliberate or inadvertent ‘administrative errors’, complicated the issue of the Aba ring-fenced areas. Geometric has been licensed to deliver power supply to Aba and Ariaria business units, just two out of 18 business units in the Enugu Disco licence areas. Emeka Offor is a government contractor and leading donor to the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Offor’s Interstate Electrics controls the remaining 16 units, which include bigger units like Onitsha, Nnewi, Awka, Owerri and Umuahia. “Legally, Interstate has no standing in wanting to lay claim to Aba and Ariaria. Economically, it has a bigger cake, as it manages 16 business units. It is just a show of greed and short-sightedness on the part of Interstate,” said a…
