The transfer window in Nigerian politics

 Just like what is obtained in the European football season every r January where most football clubs go for a desperate shopping for players in a bid to strengthen their teams to enable them compete favorably for the title.
                Same situation can be attributed to the Nigerian political scene especially now when the 2015 elections is around the corner. Nigerian politicians are in search for fertile political platforms that will help them nurture their political ambition. Similarly, political parties are both in a scramble for political heavy weights that will help them assemble a strong political arsenal ahead of the 2015 general elections. 
                                No politician or political party is leaving any stone unturned. In recent weeks, there has been mass transfer and movement of political heavy weights in the country from one party to another especially among the two GIANTS in Nigeria. [PDP and APC].
                Most recent is the decamping of eleven senators amidst all controversies from the ruling PDP to the fast rising APC, the defection of former Kano state governor  mallam Ibrahim shekarau and Atahiru Bafarawa from APC to the PDP. And then the defection again of former vice president Atiku Abubakar  from PDP to APC only give a toast of what to expect from Nigerian politicians as the election year approaches. My request to all those in this buying and selling of politicians is that they should please devote the same if not more efforts that they have been using in developing strategies to win the 2015 elections to initiate development plans that will better the fortunes of Nigerian and Nigerians.

What the bible say about money

Most people know Sean Hyman from his regular appearances on Fox Business, CNBC, and Bloomberg Television, but what they don’t know is that Sean is a former pastor, and that his secret to investing is woven within the Bible.

Perhaps that can explain why, despite his uncanny ability to predict precise moves in the stock market, Sean is often laughed at for his unique stance on investing.

For example . . . a few months ago Sean appeared on Bloomberg Television. At that time, Best Buy (BBY) was dropping to all-time lows of $16 a share. Sean predicted the stock could go down to $11 a share, and would then quickly rebound to $25 per share, and after that would rally to $40 per share over the next year.

Another commentator on the show actually mocked Sean for his stance, saying “$40 on Best Buy? If that’s the case Apple (AAPL) is going to $1,500. That’s the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard!” (Editor’s Note: At the time, Apple was trading at $650 per share).

Within a few weeks, Sean would receive the last laugh.

Best Buy dropped down to $11.20 a share and has since rebounded to $30 a share, continuing its path to $40 . . . exactly as Sean predicted. (Ironically, Apple has dropped down to about $400 per share).

During a recent private dinner with Sean, once he’d blessed the food, I wasted no time asking him what his secret is for investing so successfully.

I expected Sean to say that it was his years of experience at Charles Schwab or perhaps one of the complicated algorithms he uses for timing the stock market.

So when Sean responded that his secret to investing was the Bible, I was thoroughly shocked.

Yes, I knew Sean was a Christian (anyone who spends more than 1 minute with him will pick that up!). However, people usually keep their faith separate from things like . . . investing.

But not Sean.

For Sean, the Bible is his FOUNDATION for investing.

He explained to me how there is actually a “Biblical Money Code” woven into Scripture.

Sean says it is this Biblical Money Code that took him from making a mere $15,000 a year to now giving away up to $50,000 a year. Sean also credits this code with helping him turn his father’s $40,000 retirement account into $396,000.

Certain investment titans, Sean says, such as Warren Buffett and John Templeton, have already used this code to amass billions.

What Sean had to say impressed me so much that I asked him to put a presentation together that reveals how anyone could use this “Biblical Money Code.”

I’ve personally watched this presentation several times and it is already spreading virally.

During the video, Sean uses the teachings of King Solomon, Jesus of Nazareth, and the Apostle Paul to show how anyone can get out of debt . . . make sound investments . . . and morally build substantial wealth.

Sean even reveals a “debilitating ‘financial sin’ that blinds many . . . and could be costing you up to 41% of your life savings at this very moment.” What’s so deceiving about this sin is how innocent and safe it appears at first.

And at the end, he finishes up with his “12-12-12 plan for investing.” This is a simple step-by-step plan to go from being a saver, to an investor, to a philanthropist.
