( Sunday, December 25, 2011 ) - Series of bombs were today detonated by suicide terrorists at churches in five Nigerian cities, resulting to many casualties. Churches in the cities of Madalla, Jos, Kano, and Damaturu and Gadaka were bombed by terrorists.
 
The first and deadliest bombing occurred during morning Christmas service at St. Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla on the outskirts of Abuja, the capital city.  32 deaths have been confirmed in the Madalla attack. The death toll is expected to rise as seriously wounded victims may die in hospital receiving treatment.  Several blasts were reported hours after the Madalla bombing,  at Mountain of Fire and Miracles Church in Jos, Plateau State and at a church in Gadaka, Yobe State. Blasts were also reported in Damaturu in Yobe State, but this time a police station and a state security building were attacked in addition to churches. Miraculously, no one was killed in the Mountain of Fire attack. A police officer who got into gun battle with the attackers died of his wounds in hospital.  

 
Boko Haram, an Islamic terrorist group, has claimed responsibility for the attacks. The group whose name in Hausa language means "western education is sinful" is modeled after Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. It wants to impose sharia law across Nigeria through terror attacks in drawing attention to their demands. Nigeria is split roughly equally between Christians and Moslems. In recent days, gun battle between security forces and Boko Haram in Northern Nigeria killed over 50  in two days of fighting. "There was a major encounter with the Boko Haram in Damaturu" Ihejirika, Nigeria Army Chief said Friday. "We lost three of our soldiers, seven were wounded. But we killed over 50 of their members." Ihejirika added. Boko Haram's targets include police stations, churches and buildings/structures associated with Western influence.
 
The Vatican condemned the church bomb attacks, describing them as senseless. Father Federico Lombardi, a Vatican spokesman said "We are close to the suffering of the Nigerian church and the entire Nigerian people so tried by terrorist violence, even in these days that should be of joy and peace". Lombardi called the attack "another manifestation of blind and absurd violence which has no respect for human life and seeks to enflame more hate and confusion". 
 
U.S. condemned the Nigerian attacks which it called acts of terrorism.  "We condemn this senseless violence and tragic loss of life on Christmas Day. We have been in contact with Nigerian officials about what initially appear to be terrorist acts and pledge to assist them in bringing those responsible to justice." the White House said in a statement released from Hawaii, where President Obama is on vacation.
 
Today's bombings mark the second Christmas season that terrorists attacked churches in Nigeria. Boko Haram claimed responsibility for last year Christmas Eve attacks in Jos that killed 32 people. The group attacked five churches in the city while residents were celebrating Christmas Eve. The terror group claimed responsibility for two bombings in Abuja earlier this year, including suicide bombing of UN headquarters in August which killed at least 23 people.

The Birth of Jesus:

While Mary was still engaged to Joseph, she miraculously became pregnant through the Holy Spirit, as foretold to her by the angel. When Mary told Joseph she was pregnant, he had every right to feel disgraced. He knew the child was not his own, and Mary's apparent unfaithfulness carried a grave social stigma. Joseph not only had the right to divorce Mary, under Jewish law she could be put to death by stoning.

 
Although Joseph's initial reaction was to break the engagement, the appropriate thing for a righteous man to do, he treated Mary with extreme kindness. He did not want to cause her further shame, so he decided to act quietly. But God sent an angel to Joseph in a dream to verify Mary's story and reassure him that his marriage to her was God's will. The angel explained that the child within Mary was conceived by the Holy Spirit, that his name would be Jesus and that he was the Messiah, God with us.
 
When Joseph woke from his dream, he willingly obeyed God and took Mary home to be his wife, in spite of the public humiliation he would face. Perhaps this noble quality is one of the reasons God chose him to be the Messiah's earthly father.

Joseph too must have wondered in awe as he remembered the words found in Isaiah 7:14, "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel."
 

At that time, Caesar Augustus decreed that a census be taken, and every person in the entire Roman world had to go to his own town to register. Joseph, being of the line of David, was required to go to Bethlehem to register with Mary. While in Bethlehem, Mary gave birth to Jesus. Probably due to the census, the inn was too crowded, and Mary gave birth in a crude stable. She wrapped the baby in cloths and placed him in a manger.

The Shepherd's Worship the Savior:
 
Out in the fields, an angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds who were tending their flocks of sheep by night. The angel announced that the Savior had been born in the town of David. Suddenly a great host of heavenly beings appeared with the angels and began singing praises to God. As the angelic beings departed, the shepherds decided to travel to Bethlehem and see the Christ-child.

There they found Mary, Joseph and the baby, in the stable. After their visit, they began to spread the word about this amazing child and everything the angel had said about him. They went on their way still praising and glorifying God. But Mary kept quiet, treasuring their words and pondering them in her heart. It must have been beyond her ability to grasp, that sleeping in her arms—the tender child she had just borne—was the Savior of the world.
 
The Magi Bring Gifts:
 
After Jesus' birth, Herod was king of Judea. At this time wise men (Magi) from the east saw a star, they came in search, knowing the star signified the birth of the king of the Jews. The wise men came to the Jewish rulers in Jerusalem and asked where the Christ was to be born. The rulers explained, "In Bethlehem in Judea," referring to Micah 5:2. Herod secretly met with the Magi and asked them to report back after they had found the child. Herod told the Magi that he too wanted to go and worship the babe. But secretly Herod was plotting to kill the child.
 
So the wise men continued to follow the star in search of the new born king and found Jesus with his mother in Bethlehem. (Most likely Jesus was already two years of age by this time.) They bowed and worshipped him, offering treasures of gold, incense, and myrrh. When they left, they did not return to Herod. They had been warned in a dream of his plot to destroy the child.

A former aspirant for Idemili North and South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Chief Ifeanyi Ibezi and about two thousand others decamped from Action Congress of Nigeria and Accord Party to join the All Progressives grand Alliance. The ceremony took place at the Idemili North Headquarters Ogidi.
The decampees were from the twenty-four wards of Idemili North and South Local Government Councils.

Speaking on behalf of others, Chief Ibezi apologized to the people of Idemili for his initial mistake of joining what he called the wrong and alien political party. He said he had now identified his political base and resolved to build his political future in APGA which he noted was protecting and projecting the collective interest of Ndigbo. Hei said his former political party would be dislodged and uprooted from the area.

He extolled the sustained efforts of the Governor to liberate and give voice to Ndigbo, noting that he is the first Governor to initiate infrastructural revolution and integrated development across the State.

Receiving the decampee, Governor Obi commended them for the wise decision to be part of the wind of change and efforts of Ndigbo to forge a common front to establish a stronger presence in national affairs and justify the selfless service and contribution of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu. He made clear that he has no intention whatsoever to join another political party and expressed satisfaction that the State now has a towering image and has become source of pride to the people.

The Deputy State Chairman of APGA Chief Ifeanyi Udokwu said the party would not relent in giving Ndigbo a pride of place.

Sir,

I am forwarding this to buttress the fact that i do not have anything against an average igbo man or woman. The stand maintained by the man 'Africa Today' as shown below is a testimony to the fact that all he is concerned with is just to cause war by a campaign of ethnic irredentism. I do not think that is what we need.

Kindly help publish as you may consider appropriate.

WHILE YOUR IDENTITY IS STILL WRAPPED IN MASKS, I BELIEVE THE NEED FOR UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD AND PEACE TRANSCENDS IMMEDIATE ESTABLISHMENT OF IDENTITIES. LET US STOP THIS CALL FOR ETHNIC VIGILANCE AS IGBO'S INVESTMENTS IN LAGOS BENEFIT EVERYONE TO THE EXTENT THAT THE LAGOS CABINET EVEN ACCOMMODATES IGBO REPRESENTATION.

Were they 'yoring yoring' when a Nigerian Police Deputy Inspector General (DIG) died in a Lagos hotel room? Were they just discussing business matters when the DIG died? These are questions a female Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) will clarify in Abuja.

The female police companion from Port Harcourt was reportedly a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP). The DSP was reported to have raised alarm when Dawodu was convulsing and struggling for breath. Dawodu gave up the ghost before help could arrive. Dawodu had one form of heart problem which according to sources he travelled to South Africa recently to receive treatment. The Inspector-General of Police, Hafiz Ringim in a press statement confirmed Dawodu's death in a Lagos hotel. He however said the late DIG died when he along with friends were visiting another friend in his hotel room. This contrasts press reports the late DIG died in a hotel room he shared with a female police officer.

The female DSP has been flown to Abuja for questioning on circumstances surrounding Dawodu's death. She was ordered flown to Abuja, by Ringim to help police detectives in investigations leading to the sudden death of Dawodu.

Was Dawodu naked or fully dressed when help arrived his hotel room? The truth may never be known, since we are dealing with a corrupt system and a corrupt force. This is Nigeria! May Dawodu's soul rest in peace - this is all we can say for now.

According to press reports, Dawodu, though a Muslim, will not be buried until after a post mortem exam to determine the cause of death is performed.

A faceless Islamic group is posting and dropping fliers, threatening bombing of churches and other targets in Jos, Plateau State before December 26, 2011. It would be recalled that Christmas eve attacks and reprisals killed many in Jos last year. The radical Islamic sect, Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the Jos Christmas eve multiple bomb attacks. Many fliers are in circulation, either dropped on the ground or posted on walls and trees. Thousands have been killed earlier this year in Jos from clashes between Christian and Moslem ethnic groups.

The fliers signed by someone claiming to be Idris Musa and written in poor English listed 21 targets in the planned attacks. Part of the message on the fliers read: "We entire Muslim of Plateau State will never give up until we have our right ... Nothing can stop us from bombing these areas before December 26, 2011." Charles Okeocha, an army spokesman in Jos said authorities took the threats seriously and would do everything possible to arrest the criminals before they struck.

"There is a pamphlet in circulation threatening to attack some targets, including churches, private businesses and government institutions in Jos between now and December 26. As security agents, we are not taking the threat lightly. We have beefed up security to avoid any unpleasant situation." Okeocha told reporters.

Northern Nigeria has been hit by several bombings and attacks blamed on Boko Haram. The Islamic group claimed responsibility for the August suicide bombing of UN headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria's capital city which killed 24. It is not certain whether Boko Haram is behind the Jos Christmas bombing threat.

Labour, the popular saying goes, create wealth. We are all aware of this age old simple but strong statement. However when such wealth is not equitably distributed among the toilers of the wealth, agitations take root. In agitating, a mass movement is formed to correct the in-equality so discovered. Such mass movements have always led to the formation of labour unions for years till the present. Labour unions are known for unearthing corruptions and corrupt tendencies within corporate entities- be it- in government, public or private organisations. However, when unions or association that ought to fight corruption and agents of corruption and injustice descend to infamy and perpetuate the vices of social injustice and immorality, then what hope is left for members of such labour movement and especially the leadership of the union. This, in a nutshell is the story being unfolded at the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE). An abberation has been unfolded at NUATE on how not to fight corruption when the suspects are members of its leadership at national and branch levels.Sometime, early this year, there was an expose on an alleged planned extortion by the Secretary General of the union when he met with an official of one of the companies in concession agreement with the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria(FAAN). The aim of the meeting was to placate the company-MAEVIS- to part with some millions of Naira so as back down on the criticisms of the concession agreement which workers, as represented by the union leadership claimed was not in favour of FAAN.The recorded tape of the conversations were transcribed and published by this medium to expose the level some of the leaders of the workers could go to compromise the workers agitation on the platter of pot of “porridge”.

Also, in similar deft and and corrupt move, the branch chairman of NUATE in FAAN headquarters in Lagos was fingered by his members of alleged extortion and other corrupt acts. Top echelons of the union at the branch level probed the various allegations against their chairman and found him culpable.Consequently, he was suspended. The uproar caused by the stories making the rounds among the workers and the unpopular being created for the union by the corrupt moves of some of their leaders informed the setting up of a fact-finding committee by the president of the union,Comrade Safiyanu.Inaugurating the committee on 14th March 2011, members of the 5-man panel were among others ,charged to:

*Carry out thorough investigation into the root cause of the said allegations

*Establish the veracity or otherwise of the allegations

*Verify the authenticity of the publication,and ascertain the veracity of such allegation and how it impugned on the union. Then suggest how to redeem the image and integrity of the union.

*Meet an verify with all the entities including the publisher mentioned in the publication as to determine the authenticity or otherwise of those issues raised in the publication vis-a-vis their interactions with Comrade Ogbuji.

*The committee to equally investigate the the circumstances surrounding the suspension of Comrade Uka Williams, the chairman of FAAN branch and make appropriate recommendations to the Central Executive Committee(CEC) of NUATE.

The committee started the job given to it by inviting and meeting with especially the official from MAEVIS and the publisher of the story which came out on-line in the NigerianAviationNews. Despite the appearance of the publisher of the said story before the 5-member committee for over an hour and making available to the committee the audio recording of the encounter between the secretary general and the official of MAEVIS, it was shocking that a committee as important as this will finally submit a four-page report without a single line/mention of the appearance and what the publisher said before the committee in it nor the submission of the audio recording mentioned!

Also the meeting between the committee members and that of the offical of MAEVIS and what he told them was never mentioned.What type of report is that? It is as good as being thrown into the dustbin. With this glaring omissions in a supposedly serious investigations,the committee has this to say of Comrade Uka Williams of FAAN branch-"The panel looked at the events before ,during and after the issues surrounding the suspension of Comrade Uka Williams- the branch chairman of NUATE FAAN, identified the role of greed, lies to cover ones tracks and lack of transparency on the path of the chairman as the cause of his problem with his colleagues from the branch."

Inspite of this discovery and that Comrade Williams shot himself in the legs through cover up and lies and lack of transparency, the committee went ahead to recommend his re-instatement to be preceeded with letter of apology from Uka.What sense of justice have members of the committee displayed? As fallout of the committee's recommendation on Uka Williams, there was near fisticuffs at the maintainance yard of FAAN mid-week between members of the FAAN branch and some executive over the recommendation calling for Uka's return to the fold as chairman depite the committee's double speak
On Comrade Ogbuji, the Committee said that the Secretary General failed to appear before it to defend himself based on a letter he wrote through his solicitor initially claiming illness and days later another letter requesting for at least seven days notice before he could appear before the committee.

On resumed hearing, the committee was told that Comrade Ogbuji could not appear because he -Ogbuji has gone to court and so,"...the committee became handicapped on the matter hence, it decided to refer all issues surrounding the case to the CEC in session for the next lines of action". With the above summation on Ogbuji, the committee without hearing from him and weigh his submission with those by the publisher of the on-line medium and the MAEVIS official and audio tape evidence given to it, which speaks volumes, the committee summed up its report in this following warped "jugement"-:
'...on net publication which from all purposes and intents could be regarded as a calculated attempt by the detractors of the union to bring down the reputable name of the union through the purported action of a principal officer of the union.......could not reach any conclusion on the matter.."
If that is the case, then why is the committee saying the expose was an attempt by detractors when the panel could not bring all the facts gathered in the report submitted.On what bases have they written and submitted falsehood! This is a clarion call on the NUATE CEC not to sit on the fence on this matter. There are several issues begging for answers and if NUATE at the highest level could not clear augean stable ,it is as good as recommending the transfer of the matter to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) risk lossing members in droves to other unions or those that feel betrayed by activities of labour leaders and prefer tostay un-unionised as the current labour law allows for that.
