Ahmed Makarfi, Chairman of the caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has assured Nigerians that the party will defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
 
He said a starting point to returning to Aso Rock in 2019, was to ensure that its elective convention scheduled for December was transparent and fair.
 
Makarfi said after that, the PDP must come out of that convention strong and united, expressing confidence that this will spoil the party for APC in the next general polls.
 
He spoke when he received a delegation of former National Working Committee of the party on Tuesday in Abuja.
 
His words: “When we were in the Supreme Court, we were in the `intensive care unit’.

“When they bring you out of the unit, they put you under observation before they take you to a general ward.

“So now, we are in a general observation, that is the convention, and after that, the nomination processes for the elections will be the final.

“If we get all these processes right, there is no reason why the PDP will not be in power at the centre in 2019.

“Together, I am confident we will get there. The fact that we stumbled here and there does not mean we don’t have the capacity to rise again.

“Power is transient, it is like sleep, you wake up and it is no longer there.
 
“When you are in a position, be guided by a sense of fairness, justice and equity and you will be able to sleep well.

“You can’t satisfy everybody but if you are convinced and it is obvious that you gave your best, I tell you, you’ll remain standing and strong.

“That is what leadership at all levels is all about, whether it is political party leadership, legislative or executive.

“We should remember that one day, it can be us and at other times, it can be other people. Respect is reciprocal and it flows.”

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
