Sir: The fundamental moral requirement of all communication is respect for and service of the truth. By accurately reporting events and correctly explaining issues, the media have a strict duty to foster justice and solidarity in human relationships at all levels of society. The media serve freedom by serving truth: they obstruct freedom to the…

  Sir: I wish to inform the PHCN authorities that the broken 11KVA pole before Udu bridge is causing a lot of hardship to those of us who live along Ovwian and Orhuwhorun roads in Warri, Delta state. For two weeks now, those poles and cables have been lying dangerously there. Nobody appears to care.…

The decision of President Goodluck Jonathan to also head the Ministry of Power has drawn both constructive criticisms and pungent flaks from both sides of the divide. Some self-adjudged experts in the power sector did not give the President even the least chance of success in his new assignment.Electricity production and distribution is a very…

SIR: In this season of this nature, the wise always would ask the reason for the season, and would invariably obtain the answer of peace, which is the platform for progress. But we all have come through a lot of shakings and anxieties in the course of the year 2009, be it economic, political or social.

SIR: I am compelled because of my concern as a patriotic citizen to call the attention of the Lagos State Government to the urgent need to enforce the full implementation of the law against lawless citizens who have criminally resolved to commit suicide by crossing the highway at the expense of the modern and 21st century pedestrian bridges constructed with public funds by the government of Lagos. On a regular basis, lawless citizens get knocked down by vehicles just because they have chosen to run across the roads instead of using the bridges constructed for such purpose and the cost on the society is enormous. On December 22, 2009 at exactly 2.02 p.m., I witnessed an accident which almost claimed the life of a middle-aged man who was knocked down by a car just about five metres from the pedestrian bridge at Onipanu on Ikorodu road.

SIR: Christmas is here again and it is my special pleasure to wish the good people of Edo State and Nigeria the joy, peace and blessing of the season. Christmas is an occasion to celebrate the love of God and to rekindle our faith in the Lord. It is a season of charity, making peace, forgiveness and the celebration of our common humanity as God's children. We must remember to fend for the poor, the disempowered and the needy in line with God's injunction to be our brother's keeper.

NIGERIA, greatly endowed and created 95 years ago has remained underdeveloped. Hence I have been reflecting on Nigeria 's current development approach and it appears to me that as long as this approach has kept Nigeria underdeveloped, it is not the appropriate approach. Nigeria therefore needs alternative ideas with which to develop. Meanwhile, let us briefly understand the existing approach, but a good insight is for you to check-out election posters or the newspaper pages by state governors on how they have developed their states.

MAY God give us leaders that care, leaders that will serve the people instead of serving themselves; may God in His infinite mercy rescue us from those whose main concern is to better their own lots and that of their immediate families. It is unsettling to read that new residences are to be built for the Vice President, Senate President, Deputy Senate President, Speaker and the Deputy of the House of Representatives. While reasons were averred for the proposed legislators' movement from Apo Quarters to Maitama District extension, no reason was given for constructing a new residence for the Vice President.

"YOU gotta cry to laugh" is the title of a book by Peter Enahoro. Looks like that is what Nigerians are going through, this Christmas. There is so much excitement across the land, people trying to enjoy a two-day Christmas holiday and a weekend, but deep down, the people are aching. When the Lord Jesus Christ was born more than 2, 000 years ago, his birth was heralded by comets which drew the attention of three Wise Men from the Orient. Something phenomenal had happened, and the Illuminati had taken notice. The arrival of the Lord Jesus, Master of the Universe, was to mark a turning point in the destiny of humankind. For God so loved the world that he gave his own begotten son, as sacrificial lamb, so that the rest of humanity may enjoy the grace of eternal salvation.

TODAY is Christmas Day when Nigerians once again join the rest of the world in marking an outstanding date in the Christian calendar. Christmas is the centre of an annual holiday season when Nigerians make intricate travel plans to reunite with families and loved ones, to celebrate weddings and a series of end-of-year festivities. It is the season when many religious people give thanks for blessings received through the course of the dying year. Christmas day is however particularly significant for Christians because it is the anniversary celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ the Saviour which occurred over two thousand years ago. In other words, Christmas commemorates the event of momentous event of the Incarnation - a core mystery of the Christian faith.
