RADIO HIT SHOW

Hello viewers, I want to specially welcome you to an interesting segment, a weekly music-inclined show called The Radio Hit Show. What specifically obtains here is a review of songs by guest panelists, ranging from musicians to bloggers. This would be featured on the blog at least once in a week. This is the 21st episode titled, "Vina of BBA gets undeserved credit , please read and feel free to drop your comments. "Sup folks?! I'm guessing that most successful musicians assume that their fans truly care about them, well at a point, the world couldn't care less about Michael Jackson or Mase. Yet you will always find some guys that figure a way to make themselves relevant like Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, 2Face & Jay-Z. If you are an artist the trick is to connect with your fans regularly, cause if you take a long break, it is possible that your fans would have changed by the time you get back… free advice #Gbam Special thanks to this week's guest, who was able to make the studio despite the current situation in Nigeria. He prefers to be called iRepGoodMusic maybe that's why he represented the ear's of the average listener, so had no mercy as he unleashed the alarming truth on every track. Even me I fear… lhl.

TRANSCRIPT OF PRESIDENT JONATHAN’S ADDRESS

PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS ON THE  IMPLEMENTATION OF THE DEREGULATION POLICY IN THE DOWNSTREAM SECTOR OF THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY, SUNDAY, JANUARY 15, 2012.Dear Compatriots,This is the second time in two weeks I will address you on the deregulation of the downstream petroleum sector. In the last seven days, the nation has witnessed a disruption of economic activities.  Although, the economic imperatives for the policy have been well articulated by government, the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) went ahead to declare a nationwide strike.There was also near-breakdown of law and order in certain parts of the country as a result of the activities of some persons or groups of persons who took advantage of the situation to further their narrow interests by engaging in acts of intimidation, harassment and outright subversion of the Nigerian state. I express my sympathy to those who were adversely affected by the protests.At the inception of the deregulation policy, Government had set up the Justice Alfa Belgore Committee to liaise with Labour and other stakeholders to address likely grey areas in the policy, but despite all our efforts, Labour refused the option of dialogue and also disobeyed a restraining order of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria.However, following the intervention of the Leadership of the National Assembly, and other well-meaning Nigerians, Labour accpted to meet with government, but this yielded no tangible...
