BETWEEN BEING CYBER ROGUES AND POLITICAL CRITICS BY Barr. Shadrach Omeiza, E.


The current crops of “cyberlists” have intermittently portrayed themselves as folks who are alien to decorum and responsibility. They hide under the toga of criticism and run amok with every unimaginable piece of lie under the earth, crossing every line of decency and honesty. Painfully, this very concept and definition of criticism utterly elude them.
It is obvious that, a society where a line is not drawn between value and vices is at the precipice of lawlessness, but alas greater is the number of folks who seem to mesmerize in the pools of social vices and any attempt to purge the menace is greeted with a shout of blue murder!
There is definitely no wrong in exercising every human right conceived by the Constitution, not limited to the freedom of speech and expression only but no provision in the Constitution to make oneself a law unto himself /herself. This is where the self –styled critics lose the point, turning themselves into cyber rogues, tempting the law.
It is trite to say that, that one possesses access to the cyber room or the internet does not guarantee unrestrained right of expression. After all, it is a right of expression, not a right of destruction yes it is called freedom of speech not freedom to hate and be unruly.
I beg of you to consider the above submission as a premise to air my personal opinion on the hue created by some ill informed folks about the recent attempt by the law enforcement agency to lawfully put some restrains on the activities of certain group of people who considered themselves above the law in Kogi State.
The Governor of Kogi State, Alh. Yahaya Bello I verily know is not a man that “witch –hunt”, intimidate or harass any man. His class is far above that pedestal consideration. I want to try as much as possible not to bring the name of the dude facing court trial for his perfidious and heinous demeanor. He definitely does not worth intellectual ink. But those following the trend will definitely be guided well.
Here is a young man who by his deed exhibits traits commonly known with a man going through middle life crises. This is a boy who supposed to exude brilliancy, good culture, and uprightness but has turned himself into a cyber rogue in every worst way possible. Now that the long arm of the law intends to salvage the young man from total destruction some ill informed folks are crying foul and calling unprintable names. This culture of taking side with the derailed is painfully known to happen only in Nigeria. Be it as it may, the law will take its cause and our society must be sanitized.

DR. HALIMAT SALIU: THE GM (GENERAL MAMA) By Yusuf Abubakar Idogu

“At every turn in history, iconic men and women; those exceptional people with unprecedented breadth of service to humanity, the icons whose trajectory stand them apart from the packs, appear like the comet to beautify our world. Great achievers and product of inspiration, such rare breeds of men and women do not appear from the abyss of frivolity, vainglory or wishful thinking. Inspiration and courage gave birth to them while patriotism and passion for hard work nurtured them into limelight and ingrained them in our hearts” Maj. Gen. Chris Olukolade.
Ebira land and Nigeria by extension has been very fortunate to be blessed with such a thoroughbred. I talk of a woman and a mother to all. “Mummy” as she is fondly called by the staff of TaoFm where I have been working as a voluntary worker for sometimes now is truly a mother figure to all.
As the General Manager of the organization, one would expect a boss who will merely boss people around the workplace as common with most people in …

THE REMOTE AND IMMEDIATE CAUSES OF AJAOKUTA LOCAL GOVERNMENT DOWNFALL FROM MY OWN PERSPECTIVE BY Ojeje Isah Abdulrahman.

Ajaokuta local government is one of the most blessed local government among the 774 local government in Nigeria. It is blessed with enormous natural resources including the notable iron and steel company. Despite all these blessing or free gifts from God, Ajaokuta local government is also among the poorest local government in Nigeria and this can be attributed to the following reasons.
Firstly, the abandonment of Ajaokuta iron and steel company. The company was established and commissioned by Alhaji Shahu Shagari's administration in 1983, and it was abandoned by the subsequent government. The Ajaokuta iron and steel company would have been a major source of income to the local government and the country at large. It would have generated a lot of employment opportunities which could have reduced the level of unemployment to zero level and again it would have facilitates rapid development and enhances the standard of living of the people of Ajaokuta local government area. Although, …
