Quotes

His words, "Our awards have been for great leaders who we believed think about the next generation and the group executive vice chairman of this great organization falls into that. We are honoring people who have contributed significantly and indelibly to the facet of job creation around the West Africa sub region."
"U-Report is a Short Message Service (SMS) platform with a code (text 'JOIN To 24453) and serves as a free social monitoring tool to address issues of public health. So far, U-Report has registered 63,000 members since registration in Nigeria began and relies on volunteer community members serving as U-Reporters," he said."
...He said, "Before I hit the gavel on the motion for adjournment, I want to make this formal announcement to this House."
The meeting was done haphazardly because there were no consultations with the aspirants. So it is just like what our elder, Prince Tony Momoh, said: "If with Buhari with all his credentials is not imposed by the party on anyone, I don't think anyone else should be imposed."
