keep It New

I can, yes I can
Lions were silenced at my strike
Cheetahs seized to breath at my roar
I have done it countless times
Making, building, lifting, moulding
To mention a few, I can
I can, cos I used to
Don’t really know why it’s like this
So many of these have I done
All with ease and glee
I used to, even just the other day
Ore yes you can, my guy yes you will
After all prowess is given life
Babe you will when you take a break and learn
You can if you will just sharpen the axe
You will when you are willing to renew that mind

The glory of yesterday is good
Not good enough for the rising of today
Make it come new each day
Keep it fresh every sec
Keep it new all day long

Massive delays on renewing passports.

By: Prof. Ndubuisi Ekekwe

Whoever is responsible for the booklets to print Nigerian passports should do his or her job. It turns out that this problem- inability to renew passports – is systemic and widespread across our foreign missions. I just checked my inmails and many others have the same problems: massive delays on renewing passports.

I have followed up and was told that a contract with a supplier is the cause of the problem. I have also received a phone number to call the minister of interior. I will not call – we need to fix this for ALL CITIZENS, not for the few who have access to me.

Last month, I had to call the Nigerian Embassy in
Washington DC via my contacts to avoid a couple in the US being messed up due to delays in renewing passports. Please everyone involved should FIX this.

Calling for another special treatment is not what I want to do now. Let everyone get help. Sign whatever contract and make the booklets available to the embassies. Mr. Minister, do your job!
