...to tell the Truth, until some four years ago, I used to have a nostalgic longing for the Bar. To engage without bitterness or animosity, in the fiercest contention; to cultivate the habit of always examining both sides of a problem, and to present the side you espouse with forensic forcefulness and assuredness; to identify yourself with your client and to enter into his feelings as if you were the plaintiff or defendant or the prisoner at the Bar; to propound and urge points of law which are sometimes difficult, sometimes not all too tenable, or sometimes so fine and abstruse that it is not at al easy to distinguish one point from another; to be utterly fearless and unsparing in combat; to acquire an independence of outlook in all things and to enjoy immunity in all you say and do at the Bar so long as it is legitimate and within the bounds of Professional etiquette; to take part in fostering the cause of justice and equity in their total impartiality before the very bulwark of the citizens' liberty and individual freedom - all these and more are the inherent and distinctive attributes of a noble professional which I very much love and will forever cherish[unQuote] page 112.
Why should there be Yorubas and other non-Hausas in the Protectorate of Northern Nigeria ? Why were Ibos and other Non-Yorubas grouped Together with The Yorubas in the Protectorate of Southern Nigeria? I knew the answers.At the Berlin Conference in 1885, the imperialist powers had paid no regard to linguistic or ethnic affinities nor to geopgrahical features on boundaries in their final share-out of the territories of Africa.The dominant note at the conference was the need to to reach a compromise among the contending colonial powers, in order to ensure peace among themselves and a prosperous tenure for each in its newly acquired colonial territory.
If Jonathan’s performance does not go beyond the inauguration of time-buying committees: if he does not deliver on his electoral promises, there will be no more fig leaves under which Nigerians will hide their frustrations, for they would have been openly insulted as fools. Add an openly deceptive government, state-recognized looting, widespread illegal weapons imports, disorganized security agencies, bold militant groups, higher unemployment and deeper social divisions to growing tensions and anger, and it is not difficult to foresee mayhem coming down the road to Jonathanistan.

Nigerians will ultimately need to understand that there is something seriously wrong with this picture: about 5000 elected crooks with diminished craniums are holding 150 million people with regular craniums to ransom. And we allow it.
Rotimi Amaechi got away with the madness of purchasing a new aircraft while denying his workers minimum wage because the people of Rivers state allowed it. President Jonathan and Reuben Abati – who will hear from me soon in this column – are counting on us to reward their chicanery with ignorance and naiveté. Like everybody in Nigeria’s rulership, they have grown accustomed to a followership that allows everything they cook up in their diminished craniums. We must surprise them down the road...
-A President rides into office atop the corpses of youth corpers in a land rendered unrecognizable by violence and insecurity.
- Boko Haram has almost turned him to the president of only the portion of his country lying below the rivers Niger and Benue.
- The commercial capital of his country is at the mercy of floods.
- Nearly 70% of his people are under the age of thirty-five and, if they have never been out of Nigeria, they have never known just one month of uninterrupted electricity in all their thirty-five years on earth; they have no jobs; they have no role models.
- This president does not have a single kilometer of road anywhere in his country that is fit for 21st century human use; he has no infrastructure; no schools; no hospitals; in short, he has nothing to offer 150 million people except the assurance of a permanent sojourn in Hobbes’s state of nature where life is short and brutish.
- And what is his priority, faced with this grim picture? He hits the ground running to tenure elongation.
Opera Mail Quick Start Guide
The key to understanding Opera Mail
Opera Mail is fundamentally different from most other e-mail clients
The easiest way to learn Opera Mail is to forget about how most other e-mail clients work, learn the basic concepts in Opera, and understand how it can benefit you. Ideally, you will find yourself spending more time reading messages, and less time organizing them. Opera Mail organizes your mail for you, and with an indexing engine which allows for lightning fast searches, finding old messages is easy.
|Traditional e-mail client||Opera Mail|
|Uses folders||Uses views|
|Messages are stored in different folders||Messages are stored in one central location|
|Messages are copied or moved to folders||Views are different ways to view messages. Views just contain links to messages, not the messages themselves|
|Has an inbox where all messages ends up by default||Has no inbox, but an Unread view which shows all unread messages, while the Received view under "All messages" shows all messages|
|A message remains in your Inbox when read, unless you move it to another folder||A message is unread until you actually mark it as read, at which point it will be hidden from Unread|
|Slow searches due to folders||Lightning fast searches due to indexing engine|
How it works
Folders vs. views
Most other e-mail clients use folders. Folders are like filing cabinets, where you actually move the messages away from your Inbox, and to different folders Opera uses views (sometimes referred to as "access points"). Views are simply different ways of accessing your messages. Messages are stored in one place, but they can be shown in different views. Compare this to Google or other Web search engines. They are based on searches instead of requiring the user to browse through categories of Web pages to find information. Opera uses very fast searches to present your mail to you.
Views can be compared to colored glasses
If you put on green glasses all the other colors are still there, but you will only see green. Similarly, Opera gives you different ways of accessing your messages. The Unread view shows unread messages. All your other messages are still there, but only unread messages are shown.
It is not necessary to move messages
Since views do not store the actual messages, dragging and dropping a message will not remove it from other views, but it tells Opera to show that message in the specified view.
Unread is not an Inbox
There is no traditional inbox in Opera. The Unread view in Opera is not an inbox, but a filter which shows unread messages. To hide a message from Unread, you need to mark it as read.
The Received view
Received contains all your messages, and is set to show all by default. You cannot move messages from Received.
Organizing your messages
Stop organizing your messages like you used to
The goal of Opera is to allow you to spend more time actually reading your messages, and less time having to organize them. Since you can access your messages from several views, such as contacts, mailing lists and attachments, it should be easier to find your messages without having to manually sort them.
Warning: Deleting a message in one view deletes it everywhere else
If you delete a message from a view, it is not only removed from that view, but from all views.
Instant search results
Opera Mail's indexing engine lets you search through your messages and get the results instantly, even with thousands of messages. Use the "Start search" field in the mail panel to search through all your messages, or the quick find field in mail view pages to search incrementally through messages in that view.
Contacts are views
Contacts are found in the "Contacts" panel, and work like views too. Double-click a contact, and all correspondence with that contact is shown.
The built-in views
Opera comes with a set of built-in views, some of which are only created when matching messages are found:
- Unread: Unread messages appear here. It will have the status unread until you mark it as read. When you do, it will disappear from the Unread view but still be available in other views.
- Received: Shows all your messages by default.
- Outbox: Messages ready to be sent and queued messages are shown here.
- Sent: Sent messages are shown here.
- Drafts: The messages you are currently writing and not ready to send are shown here.
- Spam: Spam filter that learns from the messages you mark as spam or not spam.
- Trash: Deleted messages appear here. To permanently delete a message, you have to empty trash.
- Active contacts: Shows contacts you have recently interacted with.
- Active threads: Shows discussion threads you have recently participated in.
- Labels: When you label messages, they can be accessed here.
- Attachments: Messages with attachments appear here.
- Mailing lists: Messages from mailing lists appear here.
In addition to the built-in views, you can create your own filters. To create a custom filter, right-click anywhere in the area where other views are shown and select "New filter". You can either drag and drop messages from other views to tell Opera that you want those messagess to appear there, or you can create rules to filter messages automatically. To remove a message from a filter, select it and press Ctrl+X on your keyboard, or right-click and select "Remove from view". Removing a message from a view does not delete it, it simply hides it from that view.
Filter rules, and learning filters
To create rules, right-click on a custom filter and select "Properties", then select the "Rules" tab.
Accounts and account groups
By default, Opera shows all messages from all accounts. You can set Opera to show messages from one account or a group of accounts in "Mail > Show account". Accounts can be organized into categories. Go to "Mail > Manage accounts", select an account and click "Edit". You will find a field/dropdown where you can either enter a new category name, or choose from existing categories. If you need quick access to switch between accounts, you can add an account selector to a toolbar Right-click on a toolbar, select "Customize toolbars...", click the "Buttons and fields" tab, select the "Mail" category, and drag and drop the account selector dropdown.
Its getting hot in here...
By the end of August 1940, I was certain in my own mind that Dr. Azikwe was
not a conscientous member of the Nigerian Youth Movement, and that, for
some reasons best known to himself, he was bent on destroying this
nationalist organisation[The Nigerian Youth Movement]...... (Page 135):: Whatever anyone may say about Dr. Azikwe, it will be readily conceded to
him that was the first consumate propagandist that Nigeria produced. He
observed neither modesty nor reck in inflating his own ego or in deflating
that of his opponent. (Page 137)
I hope to heavens there is a Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe autobiography somewhere...
I dey come dey go dey come...
