He leadeth me

He leadeth me, O blessed thought!
O words with heavenly comfort fraught!
What e’er I do, where e’er I be,
Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.
Sometimes mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom,
By waters still, o’er troubled sea,
Still ’tis His hand that leadeth me.
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.
Lord, I would place my hand in Thine,
Nor ever murmer nor repine;
Content, whatever lot I see,
Since ’tis my God that leadeth me.
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.
And when my task on earth is done,
When by Thy grace the victory’s won,
E’en death’s cold wave I will not flee,
Since God through Jordan leadeth me.
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

‘Buhari Must Resign Over Fake Poll Promises’

Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari must resign for reneging on most of his election campaign promises, the National Coalition for Good Governance in Nigeria (NCGG) has said.

The organisation claimed Buhari had not only contravened “more than 80percent” of his campaign pledges but he has refused to implement the promises that formed the basis for his election as President.

“In civilized climes, Buhari should have resigned without any publicoutcry or bear the burden of popular uprising. Sycophants, pretending andsectional-minded people cannot provide leadership let alone goodgovernance,” NCGG said in a statement signed by Malam Abdulazeez Mitchikaand Zebulon Ayo-Tamuno, Coordinators for the North and South respectively.

“Instead of creating jobs, he is creating an environment that will makecorporations to downsize. He has promised to sack 2 000 Universitylecturers in January 2016.

“The banks are likely to lose 30 000 workers. He is corrupt and incapableof fighting corruption. Buhari has not found the Chibok girls. Boko Haram has intensified and now the Shi’ite and Suni Muslims are slaughtering themselves.”

The officials said Buhari had not fulfilled the N5 000 promised unemployedyouths and had not provided the free meal he promised.They said Buhari promised to create720 000 jobs by the 36 states in the federation yearly but failed.

“This may never happen even if we give Buhari 50 years to rule Nigeria,”the NCGG officials said.

NCGG said the fight against corruption had been selective.

“Firstly, he has only prosecuted and persecuted people from the NigerDelta. Secondly, he has refused to prosecute high profile corruption cases such as the Halliburton scandal.Buhari is also embroiled in Dasuki gate hence he is now going for a plea bargain. This hypocrisy must stop.”

NCGG pointed out the economy was on a recession.

“Buhari’s seven months rule has brought Nigeria’s economy to an all-timelow and it is plummeting further on a slippery slope.”Officials said Buhari’s Media Chat on Wednesday had “betrayed his intentions to lead Nigeria to utter disintegration.”

“He has no ideas on how to move Nigeria forward. President Buhari’spromised change is fake, utopian and nonsensical. He should resign beforepushing Nigeria to the precipice of disintegration. Nigeria must be unitedand not even President Buhari can divide us. We so resolve!”Buhari won the presidential election in March and was sworn-in in May. -CAJ News

Nigeria Legal System Labeled a Tommy and Jerry Affair

A pro-democracy organisation has lamented failure by the Nigeria government to uphold the rule of law in recent times.

The concern by the Good Governance Advocates comes on the back of government arms, particularly, the State Security Service defying court orders to release suspects in high-profile cases.

“In a true democratic setting, adherence to the rule of law and justice are keys to public trust and orderliness. But when these are vice versa the nation will be in anarchy and chaos,” Ifedayo Obi, an executive with the Good Governance Advocates.Obi said the current situation in the country’s judicial system should notcontinue in 2016 as it portended more harm than good for Nigeria’s nascent democracy.

“Even though our judicial system is not absolute, outright abuse of courtorders and differential templates that invaded election tribunals should cease from our land,” said Obi.He said if local legal luminaries as the Nigeria Bar Association andNational Judicial Council were comfortable with recent developments, thenlaw as a career in this dispensation might be a “Tom and Jerry” affair.

“Justice should not be dispensed on altar of politics and ethnicity. As we celebrate 32nd year of firstst coming of our political lord and saviour,President Buhari on December 31, let us do away with judicial impunity and contempt.”

The mysterious case of the dead North Korean doctors and their wives

Even by the standards of news about North Korea, this story is bizarre: Two North Korean doctors working in Cambodia died over the weekend, apparently after they got so drunk that their wives, also doctors, injected them with some mystery liquid to counteract the alcohol. Both men then had heart attacks, according to a report in the Phnom Penh Post.

Bizarre case of two drunken North Korean doctors in PP who died after wives injected them to counteract the alcohol https://t.co/B75rvqYdz7

Now, we’re used to stories about strange deaths in North Korea. There’s Jang Song Thaek, the mercurial uncle who North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had shot. (Although rumors went around that he was savaged by a pack of 100 hungry dogs. Not true.) Or the singer and former girlfriend of Kim Jong Un who reappeared after her reported execution. Just last week, we heard about the sudden death of Kim Yang Gon, a key liaison with South Korea, apparently in a car crash (in a country that still has relatively few cars.)

But this case concerns North Koreans who were almost certainly among the 50,000-plus citizens outside the country earning money for Kim Jong Un’s regime. According to the Cambodian news report, local police were called to an address in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Saturday night, a clinic that also serves as home to the North Korean doctors. There, they found a dozen North Koreans and the two dead North Korean doctors, identified as An Hyong Chan, 56, and Chol Ri Mun, 50.

The police were immediately suspicious but apparently had their concerns allayed.

“According to the autopsy report, the victims both died of a heart attack,” local police chief Khan Khun Tith told the newspaper. The men had been drinking heavily and were running very high temperatures when their wives found them, according to the report.

“After arriving home, we checked their conditions, and their temperature had reached 40 degrees Celsius, and their heartbeat was abnormal and their pulses abnormally weak,” Tith quoted one of the wives as saying. “So we tried to save them by injecting medicine and serum to weaken the intoxication, but an hour later, they had a heart attack and died.”

When the Phnom Penh Post’s reporters visited the clinic, they were told to leave by four unfriendly North Korean men. “We don’t want any interviews with journalists,” one of them said, according to the report.

This is the latest episode in a recent spate of news involving North Korean doctors abroad. Three North Korean doctors were killed – one of them beheaded – in northeastern Nigeria in 2013, apparently by Boko Haram, the Islamist extremist group. Then there was a report in May last year that a North Korean doctor and his wife had been kidnapped in Libya by Islamic State militants.

In Cambodia, North Korean doctors are reported to be working at medical clinics in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, near the famed Angkor Wat site, a popular destination for South Korean tourists. They are part of a burgeoning number of North Koreans working abroad.

With few legal ways to make money in the outside world, Kim Jong Un’s regime has dramatically stepped up labor exports. From textile factories in China and logging camps in Russia to construction sites in the Middle East and mines in south-east Asia, North Koreans are earning money both for themselves and the regime. They typically get to keep one-third of what they earn – far more than what they could make at home.

Poll: Whites and Republicans are the angriest people in America

Often, 2015 felt like the year of outrage. The reasons for this were large and small — from police brutality to all manner of microaggressions, from terrorism to the color of a coffee cup. Americans of every race, economic background and political leaning seemed to share a common gift: the ability to get angry.

These fiery sentiments were measured by NBC, Survey Monkey and Esquire over the course of four days last November, in an online poll of 3,257 adult Americans aptly called the “American Rage Survey.”

Now the results are in, and they reveal a landscape of national anger as layered as the population itself. Americans are angry about a lot of things, apparently, and sometimes even about the same things.

“We, The People are pissed,” Esquire editors declared this Sunday. “The body politic is burning up. And the anger that courses through are headlines and news feeds — about injustice and inequality, about marginalization and disenfranchisement, about what they are doing to us — shows no signs of abating.”

The survey found that half of all Americans feel they are angrier today than they were a year ago. Among the groups polled, white Americans and Republicans are the angriest of all.

For the purposes of quantification, the survey “measured and compared anger primarily according to the frequency with which respondents report hearing or reading something that makes them angry.” It did not, therefore, account for the intensity of each bout of rage. (More on the methodology can be found here.)

In response to the question “About how often do you hear or read something in the news that makes you angry?” 73 percent of whites said they get angry at least once a day, in contrast to 66 percent of Hispanics and 56 percent of blacks.

Seventy-seven percent of Republicans also said they get angry at least once a day, compared to 67 percent of Democrats.

Among household income brackets, “the middle of the middle class” ($50,000 to $74,9999) reported feeling anger at greater rates than both the “very rich” ($150,000 and up) and the “very poor” ($15,000 and less). About ten percent more women than men said they are angrier now than they were last year.

What accounts for these differences, along with the seeming trend of increasing anger in the population? The survey results paint a narrative of American decline, to which a majority of respondents subscribe, along with the feeling that racial tensions in the country have reached a high.

Fifty-two percent of Americans said the American dream “once held true but does not anymore.” Thirty-nine percent believe that race relations have become worse since President Barack Obama was elected.

More interesting than these numbers are the demographic differences within them. While blacks are 10 percent more likely than whites and Hispanics to believe that the American dream still holds true, they are also 15 percent more likely to think that the recent killings of African American men by police are part of a larger pattern in the police’s treatment of African Americans.

A Gallup poll from the past summer showed a similar waning confidence in American institutions, while New York Times/CBS News polling has found that public perception of race relations has degraded since Obama’s inauguration. In this latter survey, about 10 percent fewer blacks considered American race relations “generally good.”

‘I Almost Joined My Ancestors In The Last Bayelsa Election’

She saw horror on December 5, 2015, the day Bayelsa went to the poll to decide the next governor of the state. As an old woman who always comes out during election to cast her vote in her village, she was looking forward to exercising her civic respolnsibility which she and her fellow women had always taken seriously and as a tradition for close to 16 years now.

They have always come out with joy and happiness to perform their civic duties and of course as a people they already have an ideology which is tied to the governor that has been in power since 1999 and the party which is their very own party.

Coming out on Sunday to vote was horrifying for Selekebina Francis from krokrosei village. According to her, she would be traumatised for a long time to come as she said it was very reminiscent of the Biafran war as the soldiers dominated and drove everyone away, young and old regardless.

All the soldiers kept saying was that Bayelsa State must be delivered to Abuja at all cost, it was chaos and mayhem all round. Several people in her village were manhandled and beaten, and even shot in some cases; all those that attempted to resist were beaten like animals. The soldiers didn’t care whether they were old or young;they all ran away to safety and wondered why they were being treated as though Bayelsa wasn’t part and parcel of Nigeria and this was quite disheartening to say the very least.

This old woman, fondly called “Mama” by everyone around, narrated her story with a broken heart and tears. She said if they had been casting their votes for the past 16 years without any problems why was it any different this time around. When we asked her if she would still come out to perform her civic duty this time around she said she is terrified of coming out because there are some people that are still around working for the APC and have been threatening them.

She said it would be unfortunate if the culture of peaceful elections that Bayelsa had been known for over the years was allowed to be bastardised through militarisation and thuggery.

Her parting words were, “We must save Southern Ijaw! I almost joined my ancestors during the December elections. I don’t want to happen again.”
