Unemployment in Nigeria: “Going thirsty in the abundance of water” (23)
TEMPLE C. UBOCHI, Bonn, Germany (Nigeriaworld) - Talking about inland waterways, no one, even the governments, remember dredging of the Azumiri Blue River and the Imo River that empty into the Atlantic Ocean at Iwenga Ndoki historic Seaport. This Seaport has long been forgotten in spite of its historic, commercial and tourist attractions. It also needs to benefit from the recent inland water-way dredging and port development. The blue River needs restoration and the Imo River dredged. Talking about natural deep-water harbors or ports in Nigeria, notable ports like Lagos, Port Harcourt, Onne, Wimpey, Warri, and Calabar ports come to mind. more >>

Nigeria is naked ...The necessity of a collective resolution is NOW!
(Sir) TONY O. NAMMOR, (Nigeriaworld) - Do you know how senile governance has become in Nigeria; how hypocritical leadership and so called elders have become in the country; Majority of them have personalized the affairs of the nation to the point whereby; they seek their own safety and sanity and not that of the masses?

THE CHRISTIAN WALK The origins of diseases, ailments and sicknesses: Tapping into God's Laws of Divine Health
MOSHOOD FAYEMIWO, Chicago, Illinois, USA (Nigeriaworld) - If a fever could be rebuked, then headache and migraine, including all those ailments we have been traditionally told and believed are normal in human affairs aren't mere malfunctions of the human biological composition. As a matter of fact, the activities that took place before and after our Lord Jesus Christ entered Simon Peter's mother-in-law house after they left Capernaum confirmed the spiritual nexus between diseases, ailments and sicknesses and demonic activities. more >>
It is wonderful to experience what true democracy looks like
E O EKE, (Nigeriaworld) - There is really no comparison between Nigeria and Britain. For all its short comings, Britain puts the welfare and interest of its citizen at the centre of its policies. It has strong institutions which can bring anybody, irrespective of their position or wealth to account, It operates a social welfare programme for the poor, disabled and unemployed, which are not available in Nigeria. For instance, few years ago, the British government introduced university fee and pegged it at £3000.00. They knew that it would be difficult for majority of people to afford.... more >>

FROM THE PREACHER'S LENSES Crucifixion of Christ
MIKE UDEZE, Toronto, Ontario, Canada (Nigeriaworld) - Jesus spoke in parables, beyond the understanding of the rabble. Through this misunderstanding, Jesus committed two crimes whose punishment was death, by stoning and crucifixion, respectively. First, Jesus called himself 'Son of GOD' who will 'destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days.' At face value, this statement was blasphemy of the highest order in the Jewish tradition. more >>
Unemployment in Nigeria: “Going thirsty in the abundance of water” (22)
TEMPLE C. UBOCHI, Bonn, Germany (Nigeriaworld) - What the government does is to feed the nation with voodoo economics, churning out fake economic statistics. The government just said that the rebased nominal GDP for 2010 was N54.20tn; while for 2011, 2012 and 2013, the figures were N63.25tn; N71.18tn and N80.22tn ($510bn), respectively. The government claims that the country's real GDP for 2011 and 2012 now stood at 5.09% and 6.66% respectively, while the economy grew by 7.41% in real terms last year (GDP now stands at $509.9bn).... The president knows that these figures are incompatible with the facts on the ground or the real life situation in Nigeria.... more >>
Hearing the Voice of God, a divine experience or auditory hallucinations?
E O EKE, (Nigeriaworld) - The Bible is full of stories of people who claim that God talked to them. ... One of the most intractable conflicts in the world today, the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, owns its origin to a man who claimed God spoke to him. In the book of Genesis, there is a story about a nomadic Iraqi family migrating to the land of Canaan. While on their way to Canaan, the patriarch died and his son Abraham suddenly claimed that God promised him the land of Canaan. This promise of a land came to dominate the history of his descendants. more >>
Where was our Lord Jesus Christ between thirteen and twenty-nine years of age?
MOSHOOD FAYEMIWO, Chicago, Illinois, USA (Nigeriaworld) - If our Lord Jesus Christ had traveled to India as being bandied by cursed Satan and his rebellious hordes, one of these Nazarenes could easily have belched out: 'Oh, forget it, we knew how and where He got all these miraculous powers; he went to India.' Now let's not stake our conviction on St. Mathew evidence, for after all, he was one of the Inner 12. Let's take a regular man like you and I; Dr Luke. more >>
CHANGEUP TONICLord, teach me to number my days
Dr. ADENIKE YESUFU, (Nigeriaworld) - Moses expression 'number our days' caught my attention. I then began to reflect on what Moses meant exactly by this numbering of days, what would be the dynamics of numbering of days and also the implication from Moses perspectives. Does it mean merely taking note of our days, like keeping a diary? When we human beings number our days we do the chronological thing, counting and recounting our achievements in days, months and years. more >>
Articulating Atiku: From herdsman to headman
ALABA YUSUF, Abuja, Nigeria (Nigeriaworld) - There is a vital lesson in this long chronicle about the man Atiku. Here was a poor shepherd boy, a mere nomadic herdsman, who through the dint of dedication and hardwork, after an accidental encounter with Western education, pulled himself up from the slope of poverty and despondency to an enviable pinnacle, as an emulative headman of hope, proficiency and efficiency. more >>
Nigeria, the rot just got worse
E O EKE, (Nigeriaworld) - The mind bugging question is why do politicians in charge of affairs in Nigeria think that they can make irrational, irresponsible and woeful political and economic decisions without consequences? Why do they think that their jumbo salaries and corruption will not have long term social, economic and political consequences for the country, their families, friends and relatives? And why does the president think that his indecisiveness and inability to pursue the war against corruption with conviction and honesty and passion will not cost Nigeria dear? more >>
FROM THE PREACHER'S LENSES Judgment & Vengeance (Part 2)
SAM AWEDA, (Nigeriaworld) - When we see wicked people, cheaters, fraudsters, prosper, it is a mistake to think that everything is fine with them. We are often not able to see what goes on with them inwards. Given the opportunity to be close to them, reveals that often they have no peace because they have sold and exchanged their peace for worldly riches, which they will leave behind in a matter of time....
PDP and Goodluck Jonathan's government ...'A curse on Nigerians'
Evangelist ISAAC IVBAZE, Atlanta, Georgia, USA (Nigeriaworld) - The situation in Nigeria does not call for re-election of PDP at the federal level. As I write this article, I still do not believe or have not seen any credible political party in Nigeria that is truly ready to identify with the problem of the Nigerian masses. In that case, Nigeria is in deep trouble except by Devine intervention. However, Jonathan and his government have mortgaged Nigeria into the hands of criminals who have opened the gate to illegal exploitation of the nation's oil. more >>
Nigeria becomes No 1 Giant Economy in Africa with rebased GDP calculations ...And what is in it for average Nigerian?
AKIN AWOFOLAJU, New York, NY, USA (Nigeriaworld) - ...Nigeria’s weakest link could become its greatest assets in the next couple of years to come especially when it comes to its human capital resources, market potentials, young growing population and macroeconomic stability of GDP growth 7.1%. It has been predicted that Nigeria GDP can easily rise to US$4.9 trillion by 2050 by World Bank. ... In my opinion, when the GDP is finally rebased, the GDP growth rate of the country could drop from the current 6-7 percent range, to around 3.5 to 5 percent. more >>
Annexation of Crimea, any lessons for Nigeria and Africa? (Conclusion)
E O EKE, (Nigeriaworld) - I suppose, the Hutus of Central Africa should be offered a referendum to decide which country to join in the search for peace in this beleaguered part of Africa. Maybe, the Yorubas of Benin Republic should be offered a referendum to decide if they want to join Nigeria. I suggest that the Yorubas of Kwara state of Nigeria be offered a referendum to decide if they would like to join their brothers and sisters in Oyo and Osun states. Of course, the people of Bakassi must be offered a referendum.... more >>
FEMI AWODELE'S HOUSE CALLHome Improvement Series XCXII: Want a healthy and fulfilled Marriage?
FEMI AWODELE, USA (Nigeriaworld) - The topic given to me by a church I visited recently was “a fulfilled marriage”, as I sat to study for the weekend, the first thing that came to my mind was, when two unhealthy individuals come into marriage, they’ll have an unhealthy relationship, however, when two healthy and fulfilled individuals come together in marriage then that marriage would not only be healthy but also fulfilled. more >>
BABS' MUSE Matters miscellany: Odemwingingie, baby factory and Mbanefo's domestic tourism
BABS AJAYI, Gatineau, Quebec, Canada (Nigeriaworld) - There are several issues engaging the Nigerian public in the last few weeks, and I wish to focus on some of them. There is the campaign by Peter Odemwingie, a brash and anti-team soccer player who wants to get into Nigeria's soccer team, the Super Eagles, for the 2014 World Cup. There has been a surge in the theft of children and in the establishment of, wait for it, baby factories in Nigeria, the business of manufacturing babies at commercial quantities and for sale. more >>
THE CHRISTIAN WALKSeven answered questions in knowing God's will and hearing from Him
MOSHOOD FAYEMIWO, Chicago, Illinois, USA (Nigeriaworld) - When you purchased a new gizmo, you look at its manual for access. When you buy a new car, you ask for the Owner's Manual and whatever you own and needs to be operated all come with directions and manuals from their manufacturers. But when it comes to how to live right, why do we think we can run our lives without asking the Owner of Life; the Lord God Almighty on how to live right. ... Even in our churches these days, attendees are being programmed more and more to conform to the world instead of being the salt of the world. more >>
CHANGEUP TONICFind your space and fill it!
GBENGA OWOTOKI, (Nigeriaworld) - Don't just put words on paper. Do something about it. Basking in the euphoria of that great idea you received is not enough, work to bring it to manifestation. Don't allow procrastination crush your destiny. It is a thief of dreams. A boy told his father, 'Dad, if three frogs were sitting on a limb that hung over a pool, and one frog decided to jump off into the pool, how many frogs would be left on the limb?' more >>
Unemployment in Nigeria as a ticking time bomb
OGWU P. OKWUCHUKWU, Abuja, Nigeria (Nigeriaworld) - The recent immigration tragedy doesn't even tell the true situation. This is because some of the people that went for the job are either employed or under-employed but looking for a federal job. In addition, we should also realise that a sizable percentage of those looking for job may not have been invited for the screening exercise as a result of age, qualification and lack of information about the exercises. more >>
FROM THE PREACHER'S LENSES Judgment & Vengeance (Part 1)
SAM AWEDA, (Nigeriaworld) - We have in our society in Nigeria today, suspected murderers, walking freely and in spite, have attained high positions. Pen robbers, fraudsters, wicked people, cheaters and people with all kinds of vices; living in opulence while those who are making all efforts to live a godly life are living in poverty, barely able to sustain themselves
Tribute to Godwin Olusegun Kolawole Ajayi (GOK), S.A.N - A legend of history
Citizen JOSEPHINE O. SOBOYEJO, Nigeria (Nigeriaworld) - I believe God answered the prayer of the Saints though not in the way we want but in His own way to give Chief GOK Ajayi, the needed and desired rest. I know nothing can separate him from the Love of Christ that he believed in; (Romans 8: 38-39). Chief GOK Ajayi loved God and humanity. He was loyal to the Church of Christ, his family, and his friends. Good Night great man, REST IN PEACE. more >>
Mallam Sanusi, drive yourself to FRCN for questioning, not hiding under court injunction
Prof. FEMI AJAYI, Ilishan, Nigeria (Nigeriaworld) - What unfortunate judicial process in the country called Nigeria that the most virulent Nigerians would always get away from any atrocities they committed simply that they have the 'key' to 'who is who' in Nigeria as they commit the worst atrocity known to man. Sanusi, an advocate of due process, with nothing to hide, went all the way for a restraining order by a Federal High Court Lagos stopping the Investigative Panel of the Financial Reporting Council that is probing financial accounts of CBN, between 2011 and 2012, as he had earlier declined FRC invitation. These lousy public servants have mortgaged the mental capabilities of the Nigeria Judiciary.... more >>
BABS' MUSE Annexation of Crimea, any lessons for Nigeria and Africa? (Part 1)
E O EKE, (Nigeriaworld) - What would Putin do, if some of the ethnic minorities in Russia unilaterally conducts a referendum and vote to join the countries with majority of people who share the same ethnic origin with them? What Putin has done raises many ethical, moral and legal and questions, which the world needs to find fair answers. Putin is setting a dangerous precedent, which may begin to reverberate in other parts of the world as some ethnic minority groups in some countries elect to join their kinsmen in a bigger and stroger countries. more >>
Super Eagles of Nigeria: A goalless draw against Mexico is certainly not a bad way to start World Cup preparations
CYRIL C. NWOKEJI, Belgium (Nigeriaworld) - Talking about the newly invited players, one that struck my fancy was and is still is: Leon Balogun. The highly patriotic, half cast, 'second' bundesliga - playing central defender cum right full -back sensation. Apart from the fact that Leon Balogun, shares the same skin colour with my three biological children, another thing that tickled my fancy for him, was his unusual patriotism.... more >>
FEMI AWODELE'S HOUSE CALLBiblical Principles and Life Application XLV: Created to Glorify
FEMI AWODELE, USA (Nigeriaworld) - The wife and I are “Everybody loves Raymond” rerun junkies (never saw the original run), on one of the episodes, the little daughter ask her da (Ray), why are we in this world, and that led to 22 minutes of Hollywood writers and actors trying to explain why we are in this world – obviously they did a lousy job (one of those times you yell or speak to your TV?). After the episode, I ask myself if one of my kids should ask the same question, can I really answer the question.... more >>
THE CHRISTIAN WALKVox Populi: The voice of the people and the supreme voice of The True Lord God Almighty
MOSHOOD FAYEMIWO, Chicago, Illinois, USA (Nigeriaworld) - Anytime you embark on any Godly act, event, plan and spiritual activity that will uplift the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, do not go-ahead with it if you do not suffer opposition and attack from the majority. When you're harangued and criticized by the majority in your church, people assail your character and speak ill of you for standing for what is right as contained in the Book of Life, do not be intimidated and do not doubt your sanity. You are indeed on the right course. more >>
Returning Hope to Nigeria and path for a better future for Abia state in 2015 and beyond (Conclusion)
E O EKE, (Nigeriaworld) - My struggle is the struggle for equality of status and right of all Nigerians to personal dignity, self-respect, full participation in the affairs of the country and rescue for toxic ethnic nationalism and religious intolerance. This is because, these are what has brought Nigeria to the present sorry state and will finally destroy her, if no honest attempt is made to address them. This is the only reason why I condemn corruption anywhere I see it in Nigeria, no matter who is involved. more >>
