Forget about PDP and APC and presidential candidates for a minute and listen...

The UBA story: some of us said well, you can't change the country politically, there is a military government in power...but Babangida has given opportunities; so why don't we take a large national institution and see what we can do about changing it and making it better...bringing all those people together was what I was proudest of. And it convinced me, that what I have always believed...you can bring people together from wherever and have them work together and forget their ethnic background;
Extended interviews with Hakeem Belo-Osagie
On Electric Power: There is a fundamental difference between telecoms and power, which makes power more complicated. [For power, we have gas supply, generation, transmission, and distribution all run differently] and for the whole system to succeed all four have to succeed.

On Refineries: There are some countries that can do state institutions, and they do them well. We don't.

On Billionaires: I'm very much against [the] notion that the higher you're on the Forbes' list the more respected you should be.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
- The Holy Bible (NIV), Micah 6:8

Peace-less in Africa

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ongoing_armed_conflicts
Wikipedia: About 50,000 dead in 2014 in South Sudan alone.
The other hottest spots in 2014 are in the Middle East - Syria and Iraq.
The slow-burning Afghanistan and Pakistan conflicts continue, 
while Nigeria's 'Boko Haram' now matches the Israel-Paletsine conflict in fatality.  
New or intensified conflict in Ukraine, Libya, and the Central African Republic, but violence tapering off in Mexico and Somalia, thank God.
