QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS REGARDING THE 10% 2016 MAVROS REPAYMENT:
Below are some Pressing Questions and their Answers Regarding the 10% 2016 Mavro Repayment Policy..
Question 1.
Is the PH to get 10% of your 2016 MAVRO truly working?
Answer:
Yes, it is working perfectly.
Question 2,
The 10% is it the 10% of my last year PH or my 2017 PH?
Answer:
The 10% is not been calculated from your last year PH. It is for every PH u made in 2017.
10% of it is to be subtracted from ur last year PH and make available for you to GH,Ok..
Question 3.
What if I PHed before the implementation, and made the payment before the 10% 2016 repayment policy implementation , will I still get the 10%?
Answer:
No, you will not get the 10%.
The system counts only the new money donated (PHed) into the community after the implementation of PH to GH 10% of the old MAVROS.
Question 4.
If I PH now, when will I be able to GH my 10% of old MAVRO?
Answer:
You will be able to GH your 10% old MAVRO When you make the payment of your PH and it is confirmed, and your defrost MAVRO turns Green.
Question 5.
If I PH Will my upline get 10% of my PH from his or her 2016 MAVRO?
Answer:
Yes, your upline will receive 10% of your PH from his or her 2016 MAVRO.
Question 6.
What if I refer a new participant, will I get 10% of his or her PH from my 2016 MAVRO?
Answer:
Yes,Any time you refer someone into the Community, you will receive 10% of his/her PH from your 2016 Mavros.
Question 7.
What if I cancel my PH, is there any Penalty?
Answer:
Yes,there is serious Penalty now for Cancellation of PHes.
This is will make you lose your Money if u are not careful.
Any Time you "CANCEL" your PH Order, the defrost 10% subtracted from your 2016 MAVRO, will also be cancelled and will not be returned back to your 2016 MAVRO.
Example:
if Gerald PH 300k,...
10% of #300,000 which is #30,000 will be given him from his 2016 Mavros...
Now,when he cancels his PH, he will lose the #30,000 added to him from his 2016 MAVRO.
Infact,not only him will lose,his direct Up-line will also lose the Percentage he or she got from your PH...
Question 8.
What happened, when i PHed i noticed that No 10% 2016 Mavro was Added for me,Why?
Or,
When i PHed, i noticed that the 10% 2016 Mavro added to me, was not complete,Why?
Answer:
It is Simply because of the New Money Rule.
The New Money Rule is Just a way of Participants Maintaining Or Increasing the amount they are PHing...
Formula for New Money Rule*
((Old PH - Old GH) + New PH ) ?10
Example:
Assuming Gerald PHed #100,000 last month & after 30 days he GHed #130,000 + #10,000k from his Old 2016 Mavro = #140,000
Assuming he PH #100,000 again,
So (#100,000 - #140,000 + #100,000) ? 10 = #60,000?10 = #6,000...
Meaning that with your new PH of 100k u will get 6k from ur old Mavro instead of #10,000 from ur old mavro, if u av any. That is, in addition to ur 130k after 30 days, u should expect additional #6000 from ur old Mavro.
i.e. #130,000 + #6,000 = #136,000
I hope it is Self Self Explanatory Enough...
Lastly,
If you Refer a New Participant into the Community,make sure he or she has the money at hand before they PH.
Note
if your referrer cancels his or her PH,you will also lose the percentage you got from that PH that was canceled.
So my candid advice to us is not to cancel any PH.
Don't PH if you are not sure of the money.

MMM HAS COMMENCED THE PAYMENT OF 2016 MAVROS:
MMM has finally implemented the PH to GH 10% of the PHed Amount, from your 2106 Mavros...
HOW THIS WORKS IS:
Whatever amount you PH, 10% of that amount will be Deducted from your 2016 Mavros, and Added for you to also GH along with the 2017 Bonuse.
ILLUSTRATIONS:
Lets say Gerald PHed #100,000 today, what he will GH will be:
10% 2016 Mavrso 30% 2017 Mavros
#10,000 #130,000
Total GH after 30days#140,000.
And if he PHed #200,000:
#20,000 #260,000
Total GH after 30days #280,000.
And so On and So forth....
Simply Put it this way:
All those who has 2016 Mavros Outstanding ,are GHing at 40%. This is both from 2016 Mavros + 2017 Mavros.
Now, do the Maths your self while PHing, So that you will know your expected return after 30day.
While those without 2016 Mavros Outstanding, will be GHing at the Normal 30%, after 30day.
Please, Rather than Complain and Criticize the Community for the 10% , Lets try and also appreciate them for their effort for atleaste ensuring your Money isn't lost, and there is "NOT ONLY HOPE" of GHing it back, But you can Even GH it back NOW..
Now tell me, who says MMM is not the best Community to be Part of?

NEWS / Ewa-Henshaw: Why Bakassi remains a crime against humanity
« on: February 23, 2010, 03:57:09 PM »
Senator representing Cross River South Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Chief Bassey Ewa-Henshaw is today a very sad man. He is angry and weighed down because the Federal Government?s vaunted resettlement of the over 300,000 displaced Nigerians who were uprooted from their ancestral home in Bakassi has largely remained a hoax several years on.

Many of the displaced persons have died due to hunger, squalor and hopelessness as a result of criminal neglect and abandonment by the Federal Government. Ewa-Henshaw stated further in this interview with SUNSUMMIT that the terms of Green Tree Agreement (GTA) which stipulated that Bakassi people who wanted to remain in the peninsula should be allowed to do so without molestation while others that wished to relocate should be resettled in Nigeria have been observed more in breach than compliance by the authorities involved. Here are excerpts: 
What is your reaction to the maltreatment of Bakassi people by both the Federal Government and by the Cameroonian authorities?

Thank you very much, the story of Bakassi for me, is a very sad one, because I have always said that this is the first time in the history of any country that I know, where the government will take actions that will result in its citizens becoming refugees in their own country. I don?t know of any country and I stand to be corrected, if it has ever happened else where. I also stand to be advised, whether really a government should allow itself to do that to its citizens.

As you have pointed out, they are still refugees. In 2008, the Senate held a public hearing,  I believe, it is two years now, the report of that public hearing has not been tabled, let alone discussed.  I have written severally to the committees involved; the Committee on Foreign Affairs, Judiciary and State and Local Government Affairs.  The whole exercise was led by the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

  I have written to the Committee on a number of occasions but my letters were ignored.
But as we speak, and as you have found out yourself, the people that returned from Bakassi peninsula are not only from Cross River State . They are Nigerians, some of them, are Ilajes, Ijaws, Ibibios, Efiks and so on.  These are all riverine communities who had settled in Bakassi. These are the people who are now disposed, deprived and displaced from their ancestral homes. They have nowhere to go. They have been allowed by their own government to live as refugees in their country.  I think it is a very bad situation.  No provision has been made to resettle them. No provision has been made to pay compensation for land that they want to use to resettle them.

  Again, the Green Tree Agreement had stipulated that those who wanted to stay could stay without hindrance, but from the very beginning, Nigerians living in Bakassi had always been maltreated, abused by the Cameroonian gendarmes. From the beginning, Bakassi people have always said that they do not want to stay under Cameroonian authority, so our government knew from day one that there is the need to protect these people who do not want to stay there under the Cameroonian authority, but none of these has happened.  They have just been abandoned to their fate. Only the Cross River State Government has been struggling to feed them. You need to put all these within the context of the fact that the 76 oil wells that belonged to Cross River state, had to be taken away from the state and given to Akwa-Ibom state. So, Cross River state does not have the resources to look after these refugees who are all Nigerians from all over, it is a very sad situation.

In that case, what would you say is responsible for this neglect of Bakassi people?  Is it because they have nobody to speak for them or that Nigeria does not regard them as worthy of enjoying their inalienable rights as enshrined in the constitution?
I think unfortunately my own analysis or my own perception is that we seem not to bother about anything that does not degenerate into a crisis.  We seem to pretend that it doesn?t exist until it becomes a major crisis on our hand, then we begin to run around to look for fire brigade approach to deal with the problem.  I think many people including my humble self, have talked about the plight of the Bakassi people, but everything that has to be done has been ignored by those who should act.
Our constitution requires that the essence of government is to ensure the welfare of the people.

What is happening to the Bakassi people is a complete negation of that aspect of our constitution but because there is no rioting, the people have been abandoned and they are suffering in silence; they have been ignored.   Nigeria as a country does not respect the dignity of its citizens.  The authorities in Nigeria do not respect and appreciate civilized behaviour.
In your candid opinion, is there no prospect of political settlement to the issue of the 76 oil wells which is now brewing cold war between Cross River and Akwa Ibom states?

Nothing has happened as we speak. Those oil wells have not been returned to Cross River, it is funny here we are, a state owned Bakassi as part of its local government, and also had 76 oil wells, then the Nigerian State decided to go into some kind of agreement with a foreign land, to cede its own territory to a foreign power.  Bakassi went in one direction and then one day you wake up and the oil wells had gone in a different direction.  If the oil wells belong to Cross River because Bakassi was part of Cross River , then if Nigeria disposes Cross River of Bakassi and hands it over to Cameroon , where should the oil wells go? If not Cross River, they should go to Cameroon , but you know in Nigeria , nothing is logical.  We do anything and we accept it and move on and contend that if does exist.  The bane of the country is corruption.  So you see, I cannot find any other explanation for this kind of situation, which a state loses a territory to another entity and loses the assets that you attached to the state, as a result of losing that territory, to some other entity you try and figure it out, if you can.
The issue of compensation for Bakassi people and the indigenes of Ekpri Ikang in Akpabuyo Local Government Area remain as unresolved. Some time ago, the Federal Government said it has budgeted N4 billion to resettle Bakassi people.

The Cross state government said only N1 billion was released.  What do you think is happening over the payment of compensation to the returnees from Bakassi and the indigenes of Ekpri Ikang?
I think the Federal Government has shown complete insincerity in dealing with the issue of Bakassi.  We severally said that by African tradition and in particular by Nigerian tradition, especially in southern part of Nigeria , the land is your heritage.  So you have deprived the people of Bakassi of their land and given it to somebody else without consultation.  In the 21st century when the United Nations insists that the people must determine their own destiny, there was no thought of a referendum for the people to decide where they will like to belong.

They were just handed over to Cameroon as if they were a piece of rag. Now you want to resettle those who wanted to come back to land that belongs to other people, without paying them compensation. How do you expect peace in that area? How do you expect integration?
The people in Bakassi have their own chieftaincy stools, traditions, and what have you.  The people in Ikang have their own.  So, who is going to become the paramount ruler? or whose social structure is going to become paramount? You can see the point I am making.  They are creating a recipe for crisis.  Even in the political structure, there is tension, because Akpabuyo which Ikang was part of, used to have a member in the House of Assembly in the state. They used to have their own chairman and councilors.  Bakassi has their own, now Bakassi no longer has a representative in the House of Assembly.

Bakassi has a Chairman that is sitting on somebody else?s land.  The paramount ruler of Bakassi is hanging in the air ? in Calabar because he no longer has a domain.  So, all these issues in my view are recipe for crisis the people are just keeping.  Gradually things are boiling; recently there was a rioting in Ikang.  Some property were damaged but because it is a small local area, it was not as big as you have in Jos, the Federal Government has pretended that nothing has happened. They want to wait until it snowballs into something big, a major crisis before they act.

Is it possible to resolve the issue of the oil wells in a peaceful manner?  Secondly, is there any effort by the people to revisit the judgement of the International Court of Justice, even though Nigeria did not take the options of appealing the ICJ judgment?
Yes, there are peaceful options, we have been appealing to the people to be peaceful and I think that is probably the problem. Because they are peaceful, they have been ignored.  I will continue to appeal to them to be peaceful and hope that at some point, somebody at the appropriate level of government will appreciate what is going on. Initially, you talked of money being allocated for compensation, yes, I remember that I was told that N1 billion was released and another N1 billion was on the budget.

 I don?t think that any more than that has been given, but even the N4 billion for 350,000 people, amounts to about N11,000 per head. Is that sufficient to resettle the people?  You see, as a nation, we refuse to allow ourselves to plan properly because when you talk about other options at the time that the international  community was urging Nigeria to hand over Bakassi, if the government was interested in the welfare of this people, it is at that time that Nigeria would have asked the international community to arrange to put money down or come to relocate the people.

 It didn?t do that, it just accepted the ruling and issued an instrument that Bakassi is handed over to Cameroon regardless of what the people said, regardless of the fact that the Bakassi indigenes were in court and actually had a court order restraining the Federal Government from completing the handover. But the Court order was ignored, it was disobeyed and they just went ahead and did it.  So, now, the international community has moved on and left Nigeria with its carelessness and lack of planning and now the attendant problems.
How would you assess the amnesty programme in the Niger Delta? What are the discernible flaws from your own point of view and what do you think can be done to make it a success?

Well, I think the problem with the amnesty programme is again the absence of the president. There were supposed to be some post-amnesty programmes that had to do with resettlement of people. I have always personally said that amnesty on its own is not sufficient unless you follow that with a good sustainable programmes that would make people realize that there are alternative means of livelihood. But with the long absence of the president, it is difficult now to follow up on the post amnesty programme and the risk is that some of the people are beginning to believe that the Federal Government was insincere from the beginning. There are talks about returning to their struggle and so on and so forth. I really hope it does not happen.

The issue of constitution review has become a sort of wild goose chase. During the last Senate, we had the Mantu-led Joint Constitution Review Committee, which spent millions of naira to travel round the county but at end of the its recommendations were thrown away because of tenure elongation.  Now we have the Ekweremadu-led Review Committee and the Nafada-led committee in the House. Is there no way the Senate can take a second look at the work done by the Mantu Committee?

I am not a member of the current committee on the review of the constitution but I was a member of the committee during the Mantu time.  I believe that the current committee has the benefit of looking at the work that we did in our time. The issue of third term was dangerous and contentious in a country like Nigeria .  For me in retrospect, you know people felt that the review was because of only third term. You could have just thrown away the clause on third term and continue with the other aspects of the constitution and so on.  I think fundamentally, that the challenge that we faced was that, we were trying to do a complete overhaul of the constitution. I believe that, in retrospect, we may have adopted a wrong approach, to start from page one and tried to review the entire constitution.  You cannot do it, but what I believe this new committee is trying to do, it is to take a few aspects that are critical to good governance in Nigeria and deal with those ones first. This will provide you a learning experience in amending the constitution.

Really, you cannot write a perfect constitution, the operators are the key; like this issue of Vice President; acting or not acting for the President it is a very simple thing that is very clear in the constitution, sections 144 and 145 states that if the president is not there, the Vice President acts.  What I am saying in effect is that this time around it is really a question of reviewing a few critical aspects of the constitution that will promote good governance, and by good governance am talking about transparency in government, in our electoral process, strengthening our democratic institutions and culture and bring about greater integrity in the way government business is carried on. I think that is what the new committee is trying to do.

NEWS / We?ll make UNN among the best ? DVC
« on: February 23, 2010, 03:42:39 PM »
Academic activities have commenced in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), one month after it was closed down following students? demonstration on January 16, 2010. The Vice-Chancellor, Prof Bartho Okolo, shortly after the demonstration that turned violent had told Daily Sun that the unfortunate incident was orchestrated by a few mischief-makers, who were giving him a bad name.

He recalled that upon assumption of office last June, he had started to reconstruct the premier institution in order to make it conducive for teaching and learning, saying that under his short period in office they have given the university a face-lift.
Despite the unfortunate unrest, Prof Okolo assured that he would not rest on his oars until he achieves his heart desire of placing UNN among the best higher institutions of learning in the world.
Speaking in the same vein, his Deputy, (Academics), Prof Issac Asuzu, blamed the UNN students? riot on unfounded rumour.
According to him, Prof Okolo is setting a new pace in the institution which would bring new hope to both students and staff.
He also revealed that the Okolo administration has already concluded plans to re-train their academic and non-staff members abroad.
Prof Asuzu also threw light on the UNN riot, what the university authorities are doing to better the lot of students and staffers, among others.
Exerpts:

The new dawn at UNN
We were part of Prof. Nebo?s administration. Both of us were deputy vice chancellors then. Our administration is not different from that of Prof Nebo. We are pursuing the same objectives and goals. Within the short period, we have completed a number of projects, some of them started during the Nebo administration. At the hostels, most of their roofs were dilapidated. We have re-roofed them. The hostels? toilet ends were blocked. We opened them and they are now working. This administration has also extended water to parts of the staff quarters where there was no pipe-borne water. Pipes were laid to extend water to those areas. Also, we have improved upon the street lighting system, thereby enhancing security on campus at night. Our streets are now safer at night.

Rumour on fees hike
What was central to this problem was that the students said they heard that the university was going to increase school fees. There was nothing like that. As deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academics, I am part of the administration; we have never in any of our meetings deliberated on increasing school fees. Secondly, we cannot even increase school fees and begin to implement without the proposal going to the council. The council must ratify any such proposal before you implement. It was only rumour, where that rumour came from, I don?t know. It is most unfortunate. Whatever happened was based on ignorance. Hopefully, peace has returned and we will never allow such gap in information management again.

Relationship between Prof Nebo and Prof Okolo
It is a blatant lie that Prof. Okolo walked out Prof. Nebo out from his office. What I have found here is that there are a lot of rumours flying about. Prof. Nebo and Prof. Okolo are in a very good relationship. Recently, when we were going round to inspect the damage done to the university property by the students, Prof. Nebo was in the team and at the end of that tour, the Chairman of Council, Prof. Igwe, Prof. Okolo, and other members of the council, principal officers, invited Nebo to the council meeting as an observer. We are working in very good relationship with the former VC and his relationship with Prof. Okolo is very, very cordial. Prof. Barth Okolo and the present administration is working very closely with Prof. Nebo. Prof Bath Okolo will be the last person to walk Prof. Nebo out of his office. So, this is part of the destructive rumour going round the university.

New deal underway for staff
The Vice-Chancellor will release the university?s master-plan soon. We have a plan on ground to improve on the staff welfare. Part of the new package for staff has started unfolding; we now have plans to send our academic staff abroad, both academic and non-academic for training. Their counterparts will also come here to interact with us for cross fertilization of ideas because we want to move and we want to make the university the best in Africa.

The panel of inquiry
I do not want to go into anything within the terms of reference of the administrative panel of inquiry. I do not want to pre-empt the panel. The job of the panel is to look impartially at what happened and come up to say this and that was damaged by students or that nothing was damaged by them. I think based on that, there may be reparation or no reparation. We have given them a free hand to operate.

Message to the university community
What I will tell my fellow members of the university community is that all hands must be on deck; what has happened is unfortunate. The dream to bring this university to a level where it will be the best in the world will continue to be our priority. They should not act on rumours. When they hear rumour, they should investigate it before believing it and acting on it.

To the Nsukka community where we are, we are pleased they gave the land upon which the university is established. They are also our neighbours. I assure them that whatever we can do to extend municipal services to them, this administration will not fail to do it. Nobody is trying to remove any faculty to Enugu. I think the issue has since been put to rest. We look forward to a good working relationship between the university and the host community.

Our academic achievement
In this area, we have achieved so much within a short period of time. We identified areas for collaboration with universities abroad. Soon after his inauguration, the Vice Chancellor travelled extensively outside the country to some countries in Europe and Asia.
A number of universities abroad have agreed to collaborate with us on exchange programmes, our students are benefiting from this, some of them have gained scholarship under this arrangement to study aboard, one university in the United States of America has also agreed to train all our staff who are Masters students for Ph. D free.

Enhancement of campus aesthetics
Universities all over the world are known for their beautiful environments with flowers, grasses and so on. Even in Nigeria, if you go to Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, you will find out that it is a beautiful campus. We also believe that if you are in a beautiful environment, it helps you to study better. We had to demolish some illegal structures that were littered here and there. We decided to concentrate all the businesses in an area designed as business district. Before now, everywhere on campus was filled with illegal structures. We were misunderstood by the people who decided to peddle rumour only to paint us black. We had since discovered that they were acting on ignorance because they were not properly informed.

NEWS / CAN NCC GET BETTER REPLACEMENT?
« on: February 16, 2010, 05:04:01 PM »
In a couple of months, the Executive Vice Chairman, (EVC) the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Engr. Ernest Ndukwe will bow out of office industry observers are concerned about the void that his departure may create. Many of them hinted that whoever becomes the NCC helmsman must be able to sustain Ndukwe?s legacies, improve from where he stopped as well as have a clear vision for technology.
Some of them agreed that one of the good things the Olusegun Obasanjo administration did was inviting Ndukwe to oversee the NCC, to which he has been able to take to the next level.

Long before Ndukwe liberalised the NCC, other EVCs? had been appointed to man the telecommunications regulatory body. Shortly after the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) was promulgated by Decree 75 in 1992 Vincent Maduka became its custordian. These were followed by efforts to put up workable structures under a military leadership before Ndukwe began to steer the ship of liberalisation in 2000.

According to the Chief Executive officer (CEO) E-world magazine, Aaron Ukodie, the choice of Ndukwe to run the NCC in 2000 by former president Olusegun Obasanjo remains one of his right decisions.
?He picked a man versed in telecommunications operations and management. As his knowledge is vast, so is his bubble of ideas and vision for the sector, which he had canvassed many years before his appointment as the EVC of the NCC.?

Already several people are jostling and lobbying for the EVC appointments. An industry watcher revealed that it may not be surprising if the appointment is zoned to the North. He however, reiterated that the vacuum Engr.Ernest Ndukwe is leaving behind is too wide.
?Anyone who wants to replace him has to have a ?know how? of technology and communications. He or she must also be able to have the marketing and strategical skills to steer the ship,? he said.

Engr.Ndukwe?s 10 year appointment (five years of his first and second term) as the EVC of NCC expires in April.
On his achievements, Ndukwe says, ?Nigeria is today a veritable role model within Africa, with the impressive growth recorded in the telecommunications industry since 2001.  This achievement has been as a result team work with each member playing his/her role well. It is a big winning team comprising policy makers, investors, operating companies, equipment suppliers, financial institutions, contract site builders, the street payphone service providers, and employees in the industry, the media, the consultants and not the least, the Regulator.  We have succeeded because we have built bridges to overcome our challenges. We have succeeded so far because we have a passion to make a difference. The former Vice President once said that the sector Reform in the Telecom sector succeeded because the officials in charge wanted it to succeed. We succeeded largely because we deemphasized self and in its place emphasized national interest. It is that same team spirit with the same team members but perhaps with enhanced innovativeness and renewed vigour that will be required to sustain the Revolution?.

Achievements
In 2001, barely eight months after his appointment, he began with the auction of the digital mobile licence. Though NCC was aware that Nigeria was already mature for the Global System for Mobile Communications(GSM).Thereafter, asked bidders in a widely publicised request for expression for request(EOI) to indicate the technology of choice should they win a licence.90 per cent picked the GSM technology.

Five companies, MTN, Econet now Zain, Communications Investment Limited (CIL), United Networks and MSI Celltel began the $285 bid but only three won. They are MTN, Econet and CIL.CIL failed to meet up with the 14 days deadline to pay the licence fee and its provisional licence was revoked.
However, the Second National Operator licence was applied for by the owners of CIL through a new company (Globacom) and won.
The telecommunications parliament, the CEOs? forum, Telecom summit, Digital World conference and the engagement of study groups comprising stakeholders in government and the private sector were used by him as strategies to drive regulation.
Asides this, the interconnect rates was also addressed and Per Second Billing (PSB) became possible in the country.

Teledensity
Accesses to telephone and internet lines have increased. Nigeria now has 75 million active mobile line subscribers and over 15 million active Coded Division Multiple Access (CDMA) active subscribers. SIM cards are now almost sold for free.
According to Ndukwe, his vision is to ensure that all parts of the country are covered by telecommunications and ICT services and that nobody in Nigeria is left out. Our hope is that SIM cards are given for free as it is done in developed countries, airtime is where companies recoup their money.

NCC
Prior to Ndukwe?s appointment, the NCC struggled to survive and getting initial grants to carry out its function was difficult.NITEL that the Ministry of Communications turned to for subvention, reluctantly provided N50m.It managed to stay afloat from 1997 when private operators began to be licensed for a fee.
Ndukwe steered the NCC profitably and the GSM auction fetched $855m,licence for the SNO yielded $200m.In 2007,NCC earned $400m from licensing a fifth GSM operator to Metadata Development Company, United Arab Emirate(UAE).It also generated $600m from 3G license to MTN,Globacom,Zain and Alheri Engineering Company.

FDI
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in telecommunications from 2000 to June 2007 hit $9.5b.By 2004 till date, telecommunications had generated over N700 billion for the government.
Seun Igbalode, an IT analyst disclosed that the new helmsman may not find it easy to cope owing to the fact that Ndukwe left a legacy that may be too difficult to trail or sustain.
?The major likely problems are the full implementation of SIM card registration by September 2010.This will lead to a slow down in phone line acquisition. Another problem would be in the areas of mobile number portability and the implementation of anti-phone theft scheme?.
However, Otunba Abiodun Ajiboye, a stakeholder explained that the vacuum created by the absence of President Yara?Adua was a setback, except the Nigerian nation appreciates how not to politicise the position.

?We may have a misfortune of the fortunes of telecom industry because Ndukwe?s success is highly complimented by the media. He is perfectly a friend of the media and that helped him greatly. The new person will obviously have the loyalists of Ndukwe to contend with. He does not necessarily have to put his hands on as many projects as Ndukwe at the same time.
?To start with, let?s review the telecoms Act. Of what use is the SIM card registration? Let NITDA take over the regulation of information Technology. NCC concentrates on regulating the operators effectively?.

« on: January 03, 2010, 03:25:11 PM »
Knowledge is light
Ignorance is darkness
Education confers knowledge
And knowledge is power
Education is the greatest legacy
Any worth-while generation can bequeath to its posterity. Seek ye second the kingdom of Education
Axe down first the timber of illiteracy
Wage then first the war against ignorance
And all other things shall be added
To plan for a season; plant maize
To plan for a decade; plant tress
To plan for life; train and educate youth
