Rivers crisis can lead to revolution –Deputy Speaker

The Deputy Speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly, Kwanee Leyii, in this interview with CHUKWUDI AKASIKE, commends the National Assembly for intervening in the crisis rocking the state
HOW would you describe the intervention of the National Assembly in the crisis rocking the Rivers State House of Assembly?
It is constitutionally permissible and they are acting in line with the 1999 Constitution as amended. It is a welcome development. If you recall, at various fora, I have always bared my mind that the current Assembly under the leadership of Mr. Otelemaba Amachree has been very mindful that we do not play into the game plan of certain anti-democratic elements, who are, at all cost, trying to frustrate the present democratic governance. With the intervention of the National Assembly, I think it is a welcome development. It will permit time for this crisis to die down.

Nigeria is Over due for revolution – Tambuwal ( Do You Agree?)

The Speaker, House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, has said a revolution is due in Nigeria because of endemic corruption in the country, coupled with the general disaffection of the people  with the ruling elite.
He said the kind of conditions that must subsist in order for any talk of revolution to be taken seriously were widely evident.
Tambuwal stated these in Lagos on Tuesday at the 2013 Distinguished Management Lecture of the Nigerian Institute of Management (Chartered). The occasion had the theme, ‘The role of the legislature on the economic, infrastructural and ethical revolution in Nigeria’, where he was invited as a guest speaker.

He said, “The most compelling reasons for revolution throughout the ages were injustice, crushing poverty, marginalisation, rampant corruption, lawlessness, joblessness, and general disaffection with the ruling elite. You will agree with me that these describe conditions in our nation now, to a very large degree.”

Nigeria: The Lottery Revolution in Nigeria

The television documentary "Window On Our World: NLRC", produced by Picture Post and aired on NTA International, on Saturday, 6th April, 2013, was a stimulating and informative production. For most Nigerians who knew close to nothing about lottery, it was an excursion into a whole new world of an industry that is just sprouting in Nigeria. Before this documentary, there had been a series of media coverage on the history and operations of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), all leading to the conclusion that lottery will be one of the alternatives to oil in terms of income generation in the country.

Obasanjo: "The Danger Ahead Is Real and Potent, Revolution Coming"

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed fears that Nigeria will witness a revolution soon unless government takes urgent steps to check growing youth unemployment and poverty.
Speaking at the West African regional conference on youth employment in Dakar, Senegal at the weekend, Obasanjo said the danger posed by an army of unemployed youth in Nigeria can only be imagined.
"I'm afraid, and you know I am a General. When a General says he is afraid, that means the danger ahead is real and potent," he said.
