Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Genesis of a Nigerian Terrorist

Nigeria as we all know is famously notorious for the export of Oil, Endemic Corruption, 419 scams, Kidnapping for ransom, intractable problems in the Delta region  and leads the way in showing the world how to misrule a nation.
So you can imagine how bemused I am to find out that we have just received another accolade courtsey of the young man Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, as we now join the list of countries like Afghanistan Iran, Iraq and Pakistan with the potential for producing international terrorists intent on mass murder.
I suspect from now on things will get a lot tougher for Nigerians travelling anywhere near the U.S.

A lot has been already written in the press about this incident as the western press true to form have a field day about more negative news regarding our dear beloved Nigeria  however I am still quite baffled about the whole incident and feel that there are some questions that still need to be answered.
This guy comes from a wealthy priviledged family lived in an expensive apartment in London and yet tried to blow up a plane on the alleged prompting of al-qaeda if we accept the well known fact that Nigeria is a potential breeding ground for terrorism due the rampant corruption injustice and unemployment I am still baffled as to what this guy's underlying motivations were and would really like to hear what he has to say to justify his actions.
Was this just a case of brainwashing or were there other underlying reasons

Why go all the way to the U.S to attack an American Airline when there are so many corrupt past and present politicians in Nigeria that continue to ruin the country.
Can we honestly blame the west for the present plight of our nation and the fact that as an oil producing country blessed with untold resources Nigeria manages to squander it's wealth at an unprecedented rate
Or am l missing something here.

On a positive I must congratulate his father on trying to do the right thing by alerting the U.S authourities on the potential danger  however why they chose to ignore his warning's  and not properly investigate his son -baffles me, was this another case of western arrogance  and believing that his Nigerian father did'nt know what he was talking about or his story lacked credibility. after all it's not everyday that you get father's alerting authourities about a security risk posed by a dangerous son.

Na wa o I Wonder!!

Meanwhile true to form our friends the Al-Qaeda have been quick to claim responsibility for the bomb plot claiming that it was in response to the U.S killing of miltants in Yemen

Why they had to get a Nigerian involved baffles me I've always thought that we were too smart to  do other peoples dirty work but then maybe that's a simplistic view of a rather complex situation.

Anyway peace and God bless to all may the year 2010 be a better year for us all I think we all need it

Are you one of those iphone fans who have rushed out to get a new 'must have iphone' but would like to make ringtones of your favourite songs without having to search all over the internet for iphone compatible ringtones to download into itunes.

If the back of teen music magazines are to be trusted then we can safely assume that ringtones are now big business, and Apple are probably selling loads on itunes. but even if you can find your favourite Naija tracks on itunes, do you really want to have to pay for them.

After all you're probably already paying higher than average mobile phone contract prices for iPhones are you really about to fork out more money for 15-second clips of your favourite songs? Why not make your iPhone ringtones for free.
All you'll need is an iPhone (of course) itunes,on your computer which you can install for free from the Apple website and your favourite Naija songs in MP3 format if you have'nt got any naija Mp3's then you can download them for free from my site Numusicstreet,com

Once you've got your favourite tracks ready, here's what you do

1.Open iTunes and select your favourite MP3 audio file.

2.Right-click (Cmd-click for Macs) on this file in your library to bring up the context menu.

3.Select Get Info Click for larger image This will open a new dialogue box showing various details about the audio file. Select the Options tab.

4.Check the boxes next to both Start Time and Stop Time and enter the times you want your new ringtone to start and stop usually about 25 – 30 seconds (the maximum length is 40 seconds) then click OK. This will return you to your music library.

5.Right-click (Cmd-click) on the same music file again and this time select convert Selection to AAC. iTunes will process this briefly and insert the new ringtone-sized file under the original file into your library.

6.Right-click (Cmd-click) on the newly created file and select: "Show in Windows Explorer (or Finder on a Mac)" new dialogue box will open showing you the location of this file. Select the file and rename it, changing the file extension from ".m4a" to ".m4r". Windows will warn you that this change may make the file unstable, but continue anyway. Back in iTunes, delete the ringtone file you've created from your library, then import the renamed '.m4r' file into your library. itunes will usually place the file into the ringtone library for you ready to use connect your iPhone and sync your playlist. You may have to manually drag the .m4r file into the Ringtones section on your iPhone. With your iPhone synced this file is now ready to be used as a ringtone

Super Eagles Qualify for South Africa

Nigeria Comes back from the Brink to qualify for South Africa 2010

After the disappointment of conceding a last minute equaliser to group rivals Tunisia in September 09 which seemed to have assured Tunisia of certain qualification if they beat Mozambique leaving Nigeria's army of fans resigned and quietly praying for a last minute miracle.

The Super Eagles have done it and qualified for the World Cup for the fourth time in their history with a win over Kenya's Harambee Stars.2 strikes from hitman Obafemi Martins and another from Yakubu Aiyegbeni was enough to send the nation into raptures, and send the Super Eagles soaring to South Africa.

But they had to work for victory by coming from behind, after Kenya opened the scoring through Dennis Oliech on 16 minutes. In, an open, entertaining game goals were always likely, and that proved to be the case. The Super Eagles continued to press for an equaliser but it didn't arrive before the break and they went into the interval trailing.

Things brightened up for them in the second half however with the equaliser arriving just after the hour mark.when frontman Obafemi Martins was on target to make it 1-1.

Just three minutes later Super Eagles again had the lead when Yakubu Aiyegbeni - slotted home. Kenya managed to get back into the game. with an equaliser on 79 minutes, but there was still time for another twist.

Martins kindly popped up with the winner with seven minutes to go, sparking off wild celebrations in the Nigerian camp after receiving the news that Tunisia had lost 1-0 to Mozambique.
