The meeting will be held on Monday, when more than 10,000 guests will gather in New York. Tami Joan stared 300-135 design pdf at the billboard – black, white and yellow, all smiling and Best IT Certification Training Materials waved. However, this painting seems to be something not quite right. The proportions and color of the characters are ignored, and each face looks the same pale. Tami Joan murmured Dead. They are galloping along the wide 300-135 design pdf freeway. Under the lights, the road reflects a disturbing yellow light. They passed the old 300-135 design pdf Navys naval port and again passed the Brooklyn Ferry Terminal. 70-532 tutorial John finally Best IT Certification Training Materials stopped talking, pulled 70-532 tutorial out a calculator from Texas Instruments, and started ticking some numbers. Tami Joan leaned back on the back of the chair looking out over foggy sidewalks and gloomy faces of those who sat on the brownstone porch overlooking the highway. In the heat, they seem to be in a 70-483 questions and answers pdf semi-lethargic state. Taxi is also very hot. Tami Joan reaches for the window 70-483 questions and answers pdf button and wants to Best IT Certification Training Materials lower the window a little. The window did not respond, but she did not feel surprised. She reached out across John and went to the other side of the window, but he was over there too. At this moment she noticed that 70-532 tutorial the door locks on both sides had disappeared. Not even the door. She groping at the door with her hand to find the remnants of the broken door handle. Nothing at all – as if someone had sawn it with a hacksaw. What happened John asked. Well, this car door how do we open it Just as John 70-532 tutorial looked around the door, the logo for the Midtown Tunnel flashed past. Hi John tapped the partition. You forgot to bend, where are you going Maybe he wants to go to the Queensboro Bridge, Tameng 300-135 design pdf conjectured. Although the road to go the bridge more distant, but can escape the tunnel toll station. She sat forward and beat the plexiglass with the ring 300-135 design pdf on her hand. Do 70-532 tutorial you Best IT Certification Training Materials want to go that bridge The driver ignored them. Hi Not long after, they passed through the entrance to the Queensboro Bridge again. Damn John shouted. Where are you going to bring us Harlem I bet he is going to take us to Harlem. Tami Joan looks out the window. A car is moving forward with them and slowly over them. She patted 70-532 tutorial the window. Help She shouts, Help The drivers car glanced at her inadvertently, then glanced, frowned. He slowed down and followed behind them. But then suddenly a taxi abrupt, down the exit ramp down the highway, into Queens. Taxis turn into an alley, galloping over an abandoned warehouse Best IT Certification Training Materials district, at a speed of 70-483 questions and answers pdf at least 60 miles. What do you want Best IT Certification Training Materials to do Tamijong tapped the partition. Open slow Where is this Oh, God No John murmured, Look The driver did Best IT Certification Training Materials not know when to wear a ski boot. What do you want Shouted Tarim Joan. Do you want money We give you money. The man on the front seat remained silent. Tami Joan opened the bag and removed her black laptop. She leaned back to the side of the window and hit the window hard with a laptop corner. The huge noise seemed to have shocked the driver on the front seat, but the windowpane was fine. Taxi suddenly biased, almost hit the brick 300-135 design pdf wall of the roadside buildings. Give you money How much I can give you 300-135 design pdf a lot of money John cried angrily, tears flowing down his obese cheeks. Tami Joan 300-135 design pdf again smashed the window with the computer. The screen of the computer flew out of the huge impact force, but the windows were still intact. She tried again, the computers fuselage cracked, falling from her hand. Europe, Mom Both of 70-483 questions and answers pdf them were suddenly thrown violently 70-532 tutorial forward. Taxi stopped abruptly in a dark alley. Driver drilled out of the car, holding a pistol in his hand. 300-135 design pdf Please, please She begged. The driver walked to the back half of the taxi, bent over and looked through the dirty glass to the back seat.
He hurriedly recorded his conversation in a black book with a sweaty pen. Oh, just do it. Now, go to those trash cans, stay there and 70-532 tutorial direct the traffic 300-135 design pdf until the entire street is clear. Did you hear that She turned and left without saying anything good or not, A street, began to slowly move a few trash cans. Every driver who passed 70-483 questions and answers pdf by her glared at 70-532 tutorial her, and some mumbled in her mouth. Shakes glanced at the watch. Another hour I can 70-483 questions and answers pdf hold on. 70-483 questions and answers pdf 3 The peregrine falcon gently waving a few wings, landing in 300-135 design pdf the edge of the windowsill. Outside the window, noon the sun bright and dazzling, the weather seems to be extremely hot. Finally, the man Best IT Certification Training Materials murmured, turning his head to the buzzing doorbell and looking at the door to the downstairs. Is he He shouted at the 70-532 tutorial staircase, is it Lincoln Lyme turned his head to the window again without hearing any answer. The peregrine falcons head turned a little and moved very fast, just like a spasm, immediately returning to the original elegant gesture of keeping. Lyme noticed 70-532 tutorial the blood stained its paw, and a piece of yellowish flesh 70-532 tutorial was pulled by its small, black, nut shell-like beak. It stretches short neck, move slowly to the nest, the action is 70-483 questions and answers pdf reminiscent of not a bird, but a snake. The peregrine Best IT Certification Training Materials Falcon dropped the meat into the small mouth of 300-135 design pdf a blue-winged bird. What I now see is the only creature in New York 70-532 tutorial Best IT Certification Training Materials City without any natural enemies, Lyme thought. 70-532 tutorial Maybe God except God. He heard footsteps, and someone was walking up the stairs. Is he He asked Thomas. The young 300-135 design pdf man answered, No. Who is that The doorbell rang, is not it Thomass eyes Best IT Certification Training Materials looked at the window. The 70-483 questions and answers pdf bird is back.Look, theres blood on your windowsill.Do you see them The female peregrine faltered slowly into Lymes gaze. A blue-gray feather, gorgeous like fish. It 70-483 questions and answers pdf is looking up, looking back and forth toward the sky. They are 70-483 questions and answers pdf always together, will they be with them for life 300-135 design pdf Exclaimed Thomas. Like a geese Lymes eyes returned to Best IT Certification Training Materials Thomas. 70-532 tutorial The latter was bowing his strong, young waist forward, looking through the window, which was splashed with rain. Who is here Lyme asked again. He was annoyed by the deliberate delay of young people. Visitors. Visitors Ha Lyme snorted. He tried to recall when the last guest visit Best IT Certification Training Materials was. That is at least three months ago. Who was 70-483 questions and answers pdf the guest last visited Maybe those reporters, or a distant relatives. Thats right, its Peter Chter, a Best IT Certification Training Materials spine neurologist in Lyme. Blaine has been here several times, but she Best IT Certification Training Materials certainly Best IT Certification Training Materials can not be a visitor. Its so cold here, complains Tommy, reaching out to open the window at the same time. Young typical performance. Lyme thought. Do not open the window, he ordered, well, tell me 300-135 design pdf 70-483 questions and answers pdf whos coming Its cold. Youre going to scare the bird.You can turn off the 70-483 questions and answers pdf air conditioner.Ill be closed. Lets open again, said 70-532 tutorial Tangmajas forcefully to lift the thick wooden frame of the window. The 70-483 questions and answers pdf two birds got accustomed to playing since they moved in. Hearing the noise, the two peregrine falcons turned their heads and widened their eyes to the source of the noise. But they were just wide-eyed, still on the edge of the bay windows, overlooking monarchs 70-483 questions and answers pdf overlooking the collapsed ginkgo trees in their territory and 300-135 design pdf the car parked on both sides of the street. Lyme asked again Whos coming Leon Salet. Leon What did he do Thomas looked back and forth at the room.
10 Offenders Convicted Under Anti-Piracy Law – NIMASA DG
The Director-General, Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Bashir Jamoh says 10 offenders have been convicted following the signing of the anti-piracy bill into law by the Federal Government.
Jamoh who commended President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the anti-piracy bill into law, described the 10 convictions as the first category under the law.
The DG disclosed this at the official flag-off of the Integrated National Security and Waterways Protection Infrastructure in Nigeria also known as the Deep Blue Project at the ENL Terminal, Apapa Port, Lagos.
Jamoh described the Deep Blue Project as a mission accomplished in the nation’s maritime industry.
He said the project was aimed at ensuring safer waterways so that businesses can thrive and ultimately boost national economy.
The NIMASA boss said the agency was working closely with international community to curtail criminality in the nation’s exclusive economic zone.
He noted that pirate attacks had reduced since mid-February this year, urging the shipping firms to review the war risk insurance to Nigeria.
June 12: Bakare Recommends Ways To Reconfigure Nigeria
The founder of Citadel Global Community Church (formerly Latter Rain Assembly), Tunde Bakare, last Saturday said Nigeria must lay hold of the tripartite strategies of reconciliation, reconstitution, and reconstruction in order to reverse the trend of state failure.
Mr Bakare made the disclosure at a Democracy Day virtual dialogue titled “Rethinking the Nigerian State,” put together by a group of Nigerians resident in Canada in commemoration of the country’s 22nd year of return to democracy.
Nigeria’s frameworks, Mr Bakare said, came under severe onslaught by reason of exposure to the twin forces of a corrupt political class and impulsive military, culminating in the Unification Decree of May 1966, abolishing Nigeria’s federal structure.
“The Nigerian state tottered through six decades of instability, survived a civil war, and embarked on a series of failed democratic experiments and military interregna”.
“Upon the return to civil rule on May 29, 1999, the frameworks of state, including the democratic culture, the federal structure, and the institutions of public service delivery, had degenerated,” he said.
Mr Bakare recommended the 1963 Republican Constitution as a model for the nation to pursue the ideals of egalitarianism, unity, truth, and justice with an emphasis on its recognition of devolution of power.
“The 1999 Constitution, crafted in an attempt to reconstitute these frameworks, was marred by numerous aberrations, including a false premise of “We the people,” an array of ambiguities, and a cocktail of inconsistencies.”
Mr Bakare noted that President Muhammadu Buhari’s gesture of honouring M.K.O Abiola and Gani Fawehinmi in 2018 is an affirmation of an effort at redressing “a sore aspect of our past.”
The online conference had Akin Fadeyi, convener of the Corruption not in My Country Project, and Joseph Osuji , a professor at the Mount Royal University, Calgary, Canada, among its participants.
Checking Insecurity Menace And Poverty
Nigeria is one country in the present world order that can be likened to the Biblical “land that devours its inhabitants.” Every day, inhabitants of the country are killed in their numbers, yet, nothing is done to either bring the murderers to book or prevent a recurrence.
It is no longer news that no day passes by in Nigeria without killing of human persons. What is news is that despite the plenitude of the deaths, the government in power is clueless about how it can be prevented.
Amazingly, murderers have assumed larger than life status and can perpetrate evil so brazenly without encumbrance from security agents.
Kidnappers and abductors now negotiate with the Federal Government on the ransom to be paid. Security has been compromised such that the middlemen between the Federal Government and abductors also get a handsome chunk from the arrangement.
On several occasions the Federal Government had paid ransom to abductors and kidnappers. The capitulation by FG to pay ransom to abductors and kidnappers has increased the number of criminals in the country. If nothing is done to check the menace, the country will be overrun by criminals.
One illegal business that thrives greatly under the present circumstances is kidnapping. Criminals are paying scant attention to armed robbery because of the nation’s cashless policy.
Regrettably, now security agents flee to safety whenever they hear gunshots of perceived criminals. Many policemen no longer wear their uniforms because of the fear of harm. When security agents go into hiding what will civilians do? In Rivers State, most communities have taken steps to secure lives and property in their own way as result of the inability of the Nigeria Police to maintain law and order.
Nearly all communities in Ikwerre, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni, Ahoada and Etche local government areas of the state have their own security arrangements.
The formation of Security Planning Advisory Committees of the various communities in the aforesaid local government areas underscores the failure of the Federal Government to secure the lives and property of its citizens.
On very many occasions OSPAC had rescued policemen and police stations from the hands of attackers.
Boko Haram, herders, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), unknown gunmen and a plethora of other unidentifiable killer groups scattered across the country have become the undoing of the country.
Kidnappers, abductors and body-part sellers are all over the country, have gained high level of notoriety and turned same as bargaining chips with the government in power.
Unfortunately, a large chunk of the country’s resources is spent on security yet it is the most ailing sector of the economy. While a whopping 14 per- cent of the country’s budget amounting to trillions of naira, goes to security, there is nothing to show for it.
Again, state governors take billions of Naira monthly as security vote while insecurity has continued to kick us in the face. This is largely because the so called security vote is unaccounted for, so the state chief executive can afford to use same to solve their personal needs.
Yet still government’s inability to protect the security of lives and property of its citizens has become more worrisome especially because the most fundamental function of government is the maintenance of law and order. The biblical question,” if the foundation be broken what will the righteous do”, becomes more succinct and apt in the present circumstances.
Experts believe that the open admission by President Muhammadu Buhari that government has lost control of the security situation is indicative of the hopelessness that has become the lot of Nigerians.
Only recently a report originating from the United States of America indicated that Nigeria had reached a point of no return.
The aloofness of the Federal Government and the component states in the face of festering security situation leaves much to be desired. The preponderance of separatist agitations in the wake of insecurity and lack of cohesion may further worsen the state of the nation.
As it stands now, this nation has failed as all indices of a failed state are manifest. According the research carried out by US-based Council for Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Harvard Kennedy School’s programme on interstate conflict, Nigeria is on the final stage of collapse.
The finding of the research enables the Federal Government to seek solution to the twin problem of insecurity and poverty.
Today it is no longer news that many families in the country cannot have three square meals, yet Nigeria is blessed with abundant natural resources.
The truth of the matter is that the leadership of the country has failed both at federal and state levels. The claim by the Federal Government that it is fighting corruption in the face of primitive accumulation of wealth by state governors and political office holders nationwide is only a figment of imagination.
The large scale external borrowing is a serious indictment of the Federal Government’s ineptitude and blatant testimonial of lack of vision. Today some families cannot have two meals a day.
On the one hand, the Federal Government’s ban on importation of certain commodities is either sabotaged or has not been able to make the expected impact as one still finds balance of payment deficit.
The export promotion of the Federal Government has been abysmal as oil continues to be the main foreign exchange earner in the country, in spite of dwindling fortunes of the sector. There is no deliberate plan by the Federal Government to diversify the economy.
Poverty will continue to be a menace so long as the entire country continues to depend on crude oil revenue. Insecurity and poverty are good bedfellows; where there is one, there is the other.
Consequently, the better way to fight insecurity is to fight those things that make room for criminal disposition.
