''How I Survived The Crash'' - Crew Member Of The Crashed Brazilian Flight Reveals!

A crew member who was pulled from the wreckage of the plane crash which wiped out nearly an entire Brazilian football team has said he survived by curling up into a ball just before impact,metro.co.uk reports.
Flight technician Erwin Tumiri spoke for the first time of the terrifying final moments of the CP-2933 plane, which plunged into a mountainside near Medellin in Colombia on Monday night. Mr Tumiri, who suffered minor injuries, said those on board were aware the plane was in serious trouble moments before it crashed.
He told a radio station, ‘I saved myself because I followed the emergency protocol, putting bags between my legs and put myself in the foetal position. ‘I also saw how many passengers rose and began to scream.’
Brazil yesterday began a three day national mourning in memory of the 71 people killed in the disaster including players from the Chapecoense club who were on their way to the final of the Copa Sudamericana championship.

PLEASE, PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI, IS THIS ONE NIGERIA BY FORCE OR BY DOUBLE STANDARD? - BY FRANK UCHE DIBIA

“As every divided kingdom falls, so every mind divided between many studies confounds and saps itself.” Leonardo da Vinci.
Contradictions are the impossible chasms that create forever separations. God is the forever bridge that creates impossible reunions. The most dangerous people in the world are not the tiny minority echelon instigating evil acts, but those who do the acts for them.
Since you came to power, more Nigerians of Igbo origin have been killed by the Nigerian army and Nigerian police, than was the case since 1999. An Igbo man was killed in front of his shop in northern Nigeria accused of blasphemy, suspects arrested and acquitted by the state without justice for the family of the man they killed.
A Southern Nigerian woman evangelist was murdered during one of her early morning preaching session, suspects arrested and acquitted by the state, without justice for the family of the woman they killed.
Fulani herdsmen have on several occasions invaded and slaughtered people from …

Apologise To Nigerians, PDP Before You Retire From Politics, APC Spokesman Comrade Timi Frank Tells Chief Tony Anenih

A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the party’s spokesman Comrade Timi Frank, has challenged the former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Board of Trustees, Tony Anenih, to tell Nigerians one good thing he will be remembered for or be retired from political stage quietly.
Chief Anenih, who served as the Minister of Works and Housing between 1999 and 2002, had said in his book, titled ‘My Life and Nigerian Politics,’ which was presented in Abuja, at weekend, that Atiku became too ambitious during the build-up to the 2003 presidential election in which Obasanjo was seeking a second term
Frank said Chief Anenih lied on his 2003 account, adding that more than 22 PDP governors were strongly behind Atiku to contest the Presidency but Turaki Adamawa stepped down for his boss because of his loyalty.
A statement signedon Sundayin Abuja, Comrade Frank said that Chief Anenih at this stage should be apologizing to Nigerians for the damage he and others done to Nige…

Shameless Nigerian Army Trying To Lie It's Way Out Of Amnesty Int’l Report On Genocide On Biafra Protesters

In the wake of Amnesty International special report on the Genocide committed by Nigerian army on peaceful pro biafra protesters a couple of days ago, the Nigerian Army hurriedly and shamelessly released a statement of denial and falsehood. Read Nigerian army's shameless denial below & then the civil society's response; 
AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL’S PLANNED CAMPAIGN OF CALUMNY AGAINST THE NIGERIAN ARMY ON MASSOB/IPOB VIOLENT PROTESTS IN THE SOUTH EAST NIGERIA BETWEEN AUGUST 2015 AND AUGUST 2016
The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a planned release of a report by Amnesty International on an unfounded storyline of mass killings of MASSOB/IPOB protesters by the military between August 2015 and August 2016.  We wish to debunk the insinuation that our troops perpetrated the killing of defenceless agitators. This is an outright attempt to tarnish the reputation of the security forces in general and the Nigerian Army in particular, for whatever inexplicable parochial re…

Nigeria's Economy Needs Visionary Leadership, Not Buhari!

Africa and the world cannot afford a failing economy in the continent’s most populous nation. Yet that is exactly what Nigeria might be getting: Its economy is on track to shrink by 1.7 percent this year, the official unemployment rate has more than doubled over the last two years, and inflation is at an 11-year high. One concrete step President Muhammadu Buhari could take to address the crisis would be to eliminate the country’s disastrous foreign exchange controls. Instead, Buhari has made no secret of his desire to defend Nigeria's currency. And the central bank has mostly gone along. Despite allowing the devaluation of the naira in June, it is continuing to manipulate the exchange rate -- discouraging foreign investors, creating a crippling shortage of dollars for businesses that need to import, and feeding a currency black market. To keep down the street price of vanishing dollars, Buhari’s government has arrested informal money-changers. More capital controls are in the works. …

So Long, Fidel Castro - By Reuben Abati

The death of Fidel Castro was long expected and when it finally came on Friday night, there was very little surprise across the world. He was 90, and in August, he had himself predicted that he would not live beyond 90. He had been sick for about ten years, compelling him to hand over power as Cuba’s leader in 2006. It is instructive that Castro’s death, like his life, was attended by divided opinions. No other man has been more controversial in Latin America and indeed in the whole of the Americas in the last 50 years.
He was hated and loved in almost equal measure, praised by those who admired him, and denounced by those who objected to his politics and style. This much was illustrated as the news of his death spread: while Cubans in Havana and across the country mourned the death of the El Commandante, the father of modern Cuba, and perhaps the last of the iconic revolutionary figures of the 20th Century, 145 kilometres away to the North, in Miami, Florida, many Cubans in diaspora c…

Before Everything In Nigeria Falls Apart - By Dele Momodu:

Fellow Nigerians, something big is about to happen in our dear beloved country. I wish I could foretell a pleasant development. I truly wish. But what I see is total confusion. I refuse to see mayhem out of faith and not by conviction. I’m praying, fasting and hoping that our benevolent God would avert yet another dangerous crisis hovering over our great country. Nigeria has suffered too much since attaining Independence in the year of our Lord 1960. We have tried all sorts of permutations and configurations but nothing has work to our collective benefit. Each time we thought we were close to Eldorado, something came from the blues to dash our hopes and put us all into absolute disarray.
I sometimes wonder who we have offended as a people and a country. Why are we so jinxed? A gracious God actually provided us with everything we needed to make our lives as comfortable as we wanted or desired. God did not just provide us with what was necessary for existence HE lavished upon us goodies …
