With the arrival of Air Nigeria and the high cost of First Cl[censored] fare to Europe and USA its remain to be seen whether the tr[censored] will change. There is no excuse now to blame the foreign airlines if our own cannot reverse the tr[censored] by offering affordable fares.

I agree with recent comment that the police and army were responsible in putting PDP in power. Considering the involvement of the arm forces, during election and the high number of innocent civilian killed to put the ruling party in power. We must keep the arm forces out of politic. This can only be possible by allowing a caretaker or transitional committee to be in charge while the government resigned three month to the election. It should be should be recall that since the beginning of time there was never a period when a ruling party was defeated in Nigeria.

Does any one care to estimate how much we Nigerians spent on parties and other form of entertainments? Taking into account the dare financial difficulties most ordinary Nigerians are experiencing. On a weekly basis nothing less three to five billions Naira is being spent on parties of various denominations.

It high time we pe4rioritise our essential priorities. Instead of these extravagant and unproductive addictions which put many in debts. If the money invested or wasted in unproductive habits are channel into productive charities we can build hospitals, school and coolleges and e4ven support our ever growing unemployed. After-all what is there to celebrate!
