...A female Governor is coming to power in one of the states

POPULAR seer and General Overseer of His Presence Redemption Ministries Int'l, Lagos, Prophet David Babalola, has again come with vision of what this year holds for Nigerians and her leaders.

The story of his conversion to Christianity is most inspiring. And the zeal with which he has maintained that 360 degrees turn in his faith life is best captured by Romans 8:30; “whom he predestined, he also called; and those he called, he also justified; and those whom he justified he also glorified”.  Pastor Biodun Lawal, Zonal Pastor, Christ Embassy Ghana, and one of the Assistant Secretary Generals of the Believers LoveWorld Incorporated, has a very infectious personality. You cannot come in contact with him without getting a whiff of what he is high on; sold out to the gospel, embellished in the vision of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome; giving people's lives meaning by helping them to be part of something that is more than a church   God's vision.

Government's inability to create jobs and assist Nigerian university graduates to be gainfully employed have been the major burdens of the economy. To, the Managing Director of Parallex Micro Finance Bank, Pastor Femi Otenigbagbe, Nigerians could be trained in becoming self employed and employers of labour. In this interview with FIDELIS UGBOMEH and AUSTIN JACOBSON, Otenigbagbe speaks about an upcoming event organised to enlightened the public on how to create ideas and manage wealth and more.  

In present day Nigeria, the role of the Judiciary can never be over emphasised. The Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Hon Justice Lawal Hassan Gumi, OFR, takes a second look at his area of core competence, reappraising the profession and the challenges it entails, not forgetting to hammer on the changes his administration has brought to bear on the day-to-day discharge of legal duties in this interview with ODIMMEGWA JOHNPETER. Excerpts:


WHAT is your take on the need for both the bench and the Bar to be subjected to a system of continued professional development to assist the course of dispensation of Justice in the Judiciary?
I agree with you that for the administration of Justice to really find its place in the Nigeria of today there is a need for both the Bench and the Bar to be subjected to continuous capacity building by way of training.

ALHAJI Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, leader of the disbanded Niger Delta Volunteer Force (NDVF), that fiercely engaged in the struggle for the emancipation of the region from the claws of the predators dominating the Nigerian State, in this interview with CYPRIAN AJAH in Lagos, says that their struggle was to take back their resources for the development of Niger Delta states.

At 52, can Nigeria be said to be the giant of Africa?
Nigeria has never been a giant at anytime. Anybody who is saying that Nigeria is the giant of Africa is making a fool of himself. What makes a giant? Is it by inflating the population figures? In reality, the population of Nigeria cannot be more than 70 million. There is nothing that has ever made Nigeria a giant, is it scientific, technological or economic progress? Nigeria is a dwarf.
