Oooh, what a little bullion can do

This is how Nigerian girl and grandma, Folorunsho Alakija became one of the 1,000 richest people and one of the 100 most powerful women in the world:
  • she made dresses, we don't know how many; 
  • she came to lead an oil exploration and production business; and 
  • since God deserves all the glory, she became a born-again Christian.

I hope she paid the press for this asinine generous biography.

The ability to consistently wear spooky make-up is also inspiring to certain women.  Powerful, inspiring, beautiful - these words have come to mean the opposites perhaps?

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.

Many Nigerians observe a religion

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.
