NOTRE PÈRE OUR FATHER
Notre Père qui es aux cieux:
que ton nom soit sanctifié;
que ton règne vienne;
que ta volonté soit faite
sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain quotidien;
et pardonne-nous nos offenses,
comme nous pardonnons à ceux qui nous ont offensés;
et ne nous induis point en tentation,
mais délivre-nous du mal.
Padre nuestro que estás en los cielos, santificado sea tu nombre,
venga tu reyno,
hagase tu voluntad,
asì en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan cotidiano,
Y perdónanos nuestras deudas,
asì como nosotros perdonamos á nuestros deudores.
Y no nos metas en tentación,
mas líbranos de mal.
Faither o us aa
Faither o us aa, bidin abune,
thy name be halie.
Let thy reign begin.
Thy will be dune, on the erthe,
as it is in Hevin.
Gie us ilka day oor needfu fendin
an forgie us aa oor ill-deeds,
e’en as we forgie thae wha dae us ill
as lat us no be testit,
but sauf us frae the Ill-Ane,
[for the croon is thine ain,
an the micht,
an the glorie,
for iver an iver.]
Fader Vår som är i Himmelen.
Helgat varde Ditt namn.
Tillkomme Ditt Rike.
Ske Din vilja, såsom i Himmelen
så ock på Jorden.
Vårt dagliga bröd giv oss idag
Och förlåt oss våra skulder
såsom ock vi förlåta dem oss skyldiga äro
och inled oss icke i frestelse
utan fräls oss ifrån ondo.
Ty Riket är Ditt och Makten och Härligheten
Ey göklerde olan Babamız,
İsmin mukaddes olsun;
Gökte olduğu gibi yerde de senin iraden olsun;
Gündelik ekmeğimizi bize bugün ver;
Ve bize borçlu olanlara bağışladığımız gibi, bizim borçlarımızı bize bağışla;
Ve bizi iğvaya götürme, fakat bizi şerirden kurtar;
Çünkü melekût ve kudret ve izzet ebedlere kadar senindir.
하늘에 계신 우리 아버지
아버지의 이름이 거룩히 빛나시며
아버지의 나라가 오시며
아버지의 뜻이 하늘에서와 같이 땅에서도 이루어지소서.
오늘 저희에게 일용할 양식을 주시고
저희에게 잘못한 이를 저희가 용서하오니
저희 죄를 용서하시고
저희를 유혹에 빠지지 않게 하시고
(주님께 나라와 권능과 영광이 영원히 있나이다.)

Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo has said that Nigeria had no excuse for the poor state of its agriculture sector. Obasanjo stated this at an agriculture seminar in Abuja organised by Lift Above Poverty Organisation (LAPO), a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) on Tuesday, October 18. According to him, researches had revealed that about 65 per cent of the country’s population were faced with “food insecurity’’. He called on Nigerians to make agriculture more attractive, saying that the country had a comparative advantage in the sector and should, therefore, not suffer food shortage, Vanguard reports. Obasanjo expressed concern that investment in the sector could not address the food insecurity in the country. He said that some countries that went through the same challenges as Nigeria had all walked out of the problem, but that Nigeria’s was getting worse. “We must return to agriculture as a means to increase our food production in Nigeria. “We must all play our cards either in farming, processing, manufacturing, packaging, and we must put in our best to revamp the sector and address food insecurity in our country,’’ he said. Obasanjo challenged Nigerians to work hard to attain zero hunger level in 2025, adding that farmers should use appropriate technologies for better yields. He regretted that many farmers in the country were still using hoe and cutlass. The Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh,In his address said the federal government under President Muhammadu Buhari was committed to diversifying the nation’s economy through agriculture.

Isiaka Olagunju, general secretary of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), says it is erroneous to level allegations of corruption against the Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC).
Speaking on Monday on a Raypower radio programme, The Platform, while fielding questions on the recent raid of some judges’ homes by the Department of State Services (DSS), noted It’s only in Nigeria we arrest before we investigate.
He said Nigerians should not forget that a week ago, the NJC not only dismissed three judges on allegations of corruption but recommended them for prosecution.
He stated that raid on the homes of the judges was not done according to due process.“Any allegation against the NJC, with due respect, is quite erroneous. Apparently, they are not aware of the position of the NJC; we always rely on what we read on the newspapers and social media,” Olagunju said.
“Based on the facts available to us, the NBA, NJC is doing what they are supposed to do and they are doing well. There may be room for improvement; we are not saying they are perfect.
“Of course there is no prefect condition in life, but if you need room for improvement, there must be engagement. It’s not by confrontation; it’s by engagement to achieve what you want to achieve.
“It’s only in Nigeria we arrest before we investigate; we are not saying the judges are corrupt or not corrupt but due process was not followed. If a constable is found not doing the right thing he is firstly dismissed before he is prosecuted. The fight against corruption is a process.
“Please we should not forget that just about a week ago, the NJC dismissed three justices — one justice of the court of appeal and two judges of the high court — and even recommended the prosecution of one of them.
“We need to appreciate the efforts made by the NJC. If you want to make comments, you should make comments with the facts available to us, we should not rely on speculation.”
He explained that a committee of the NBA would look into the matter and advise the law body of a decision to take.
“We are not gathering information; they will look into the matter and advise us so we would know the decision to take or what to do, and hopefully the NJC is meeting today in Abuja and before the end of today we will also come out with something. But definitely, it’s not together information but to look into the matter,” he added.
“What are the real issues? Because we rely on what we believe on social media, on newspapers, but we established a committee to look into the matter and see or give us the actual facts.”
Also note that schools have started uploading names of successful candidates to the NYSC portal. Visit the site to check if your name has been uploaded.
If your name has been successfully uploaded, don't hesitate to start your registration on the 17th of October (Official date given by NYSC for commencing of registration)
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has discloses their latest plans to redevelop their stadium. On Tuesday president Florentino Perez and mayor Manuela Carmena presented a revised project of Real Madrid stadium. And now The Mirror reports that the Spanish giants are looking for a sponsor to provide funding for the makeover, which will cost an anticipated £360m (€400m). The President has also confirmed that around 3000 seats will be replaced at the Bernabeu – but the capacity of 81,000 will not be increased.
There is some tension in Kaduna as reports have emerged that troops from the Nigerian army have surrounded a gathering of Shi’a Muslims in Kaduna, with worshipers trapped inside on Tuesday, October 11. This is coming days after the Kaduna state government declared the Shi’a sect illegal. The UK-based Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC), said in a statement that the encircled worshipers were gathered to commemorate historical events associated with the Islamic month of Muharram that are particularly significant in the Shi’a calendar. The group also said: “Shortly before the Kaduna Markaz mosque on Zango Road was encircled by armoured military vehicles carrying heavily armed soldiers and also an ambulance were among a convoy of 18 military vehicles seen nearby.” The group then called on the federal government to withdraw the soldiers and allow the worshipers to continue their worship. However, according to a Premium Times source the standoff was happening at the residence of Muhtar Sahabi, who is a senior Shi’a leader. The eyewitness source also said that dozens of armed soldiers and mobile police officers surrounded the compound and were waiting for those gathered inside to leave. “It appears they want to make arrests following the recent ban,” the source said, stating that some women and children who started coming out were sent back by the soldiers.Shiites have been under pressure, since the Kaduna state government declared the movement illegal in the state on Friday, October 7. Kaduna state government kicked off the war on Shiite Muslims in the state with the ordering of the arrest of one of the leaders of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN).

Following the continuous fall of the naira’s
value, some members of the House of
Representatives have called for the sack of the
governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin
The motion titled ‘Call for investigation of the
Central Bank of Nigeria’s forex policies’ was
sponsored by Hon. Ali Isa.
A lawmaker, Mojeed Alabi said the CBN governor
had failed to honour various invitations to
explain the bank’s polices.
“Over the falling of the naira, the CBN governor
and his team should be sacked,” Alabi said.
Another lawmaker, Wale Raji said Nigeria is the
only country that quotes “black market” figures.
“Who is in charge of our Forex CBN or the black
market? This is the only country in the world
where the black market rates are quoted on
television,” Raji said.
“If Nigeria were to be a normal country, the CBN
governor and his team should be sacked.”
The Nigeria Union of Teachers on Wednesday
said the economic recession has immensely
affected the performance of teachers’ in Niger
State chairman of the NUT, Comrade Ibrahim
Umar said this during the occasion of this year’s
World Teachers’ Day in Minna.
Umar said, “It is evident that teachers at both
primary and post-primary schools in the state
are being owed salaries for months and in some
cases, they are paid at random and on
“The implication of this and its attendant
consequences are greatly affecting the morale of
our esteemed members and, indeed, the
development of the education sector.”
He also said the irregular payment of teachers’
salaries has also affected the education sector.
“It is very demoralising , unfair and unjust to
allow teachers, particularly at the primary school
level, to stay for two to four months without
“Teachers have now been compelled to become
beggars and most neglected species within the
family of civil service, a position they don’t
deserve,” he added.

According to oaupeeps, It was toward the eventide of the 16th September - Thursday that one of the core courses at the department of English Language at the Faculty of Arts, EGL 204 result was released for her students to check. The result was overly poor for almost all of them. A correspondent of OAU Peeps News Agency was able to gather from a Student (whose name would not be disclosed) that the results were quite inconsistent. According to Dupe(not real name), at first, she checked and saw that she was 'given' 24 in total, over 100 marks.
Another affected student lamented, "how can I score below 20 over all!" And Tolu (not real name) explained that he believed he merited and expected much than what was given him.
Our correspondent also learnt that after the first upload, few left for the department to lodge complaints, they were made to understand it was due to some terrible error which would be rectified in no time. However after the alleged correction, it ws said that the grades of the few with good marks before, if not all, nosedived to Ds, Es and F s. The result was reloaded again, even, nothing was changed. And on the 22nd September, the result became cleared on the students eportal accounts - the latest development.
However at the moment, many students still believeIt that there would most plausibly be, another reload, from the department and or the bodies in charge, that would most expectedly reflect the actual grades, of her confused students. - See more at: http://www.oaupeeps.com/2016/09/students-lament-egl204-results.html#sthash.LTO9U4PA.dpuf

The news in Nigeria of late has been filled
with many words, but one that scares
everyone most is the word: Recession. There
have been rumors that the Nigerian economy
was facing a rapid downturn over a long
time, but right now, those rumors have
graduated into fact.
Recession in Nigeria has affected foodstuff
The prices of foodstuff, of staples and other
things Nigerians use from day to day have
skyrocketed. The panic is spreading slowly as
people are finding it difficult to afford food
and other important things.
How though can families and individuals pull
through this economic recession
During this recession, it is vital to spend
wisely. One key way to do that is to have a
budget. Whether as a family or an individual
that lives alone, a budget needs to be created
for food, drinks, clothes, internet, recharge
cards and so on.
The budget should not only be created, but
should be adhered to. Setting a fixed amount
for each need will help you cut down on
impulsive spending and help you stay on
track. Living without a budget, might make
you start borrowing money just a few days
into the new month.
Reduce drastically the amount of times you
eat out. Even if you have to eat out once in a
while, you might need to cut down on what
you spend. One way to do this is to get a lot
of foodstuff. Stocking up the house with the
basic things you eat daily like rice, beans,
garri and so on will help reduce spending.
Also, you have to be willing to cook.
Laziness, when it comes to cooking, is one
big problem that most people face, especially
single people. However, it has been proven
that eating out eats deeper into your budget
than having home-cooked food. So you might
have to bring out those cooking skills.
3. Save up
The economic recession might take a while
before the turn-around comes. So it is
important that you save up for the days when
the rain falls harder than it is now.
So if you are working with a budget, then you
should come up with a savings plan for the
future. A well-funded savings account can be
just the extra needed to meet bills and/or the
inevitable emergencies that life throws at us.
So even within the recession, it is important
to save up.
4. Cut Back
The recession is a time to cut back, not
borrow more money. So it is important that
you cut away as many extras as possible.
Money spent on entertainment, time at the
mall, cinemas and other things you can do
without should be cut back on.
It might be tempting to borrow, to keep up a
certain lifestyle, but the recession is not the
best time for that. So the best move is to cut
back on all the frills.
For businesses, the following steps should be
taken to keep them afloat during a recession:
Downsizing maybe inevitable at this point for
many businesses. So it is important that you
do a headcount, decide who you can do
without and then take the very painful
decision to let some people go.
You might have to change schedules and do
other things to increase productivity of your
business, even with less the amount of staff.
6. Reduce your overheard cost
it is important to reduce inventories and
overhead at any cost. You should monitor
your inventory for items that do not move
Note that that is where your cash is locked
up, in your cost of materials, labor, and so
on, waiting to be turned into cash after it’s
sold and the receivables collected. This can
cause loss of cash that is not good for a
business during this recession.
On a final note:
7. Watch out for sales
Once in a while,online sales companies have
sales, when you can get fashion items and
home appliances at a far cheaper price. So
be on the watch for this sales, they are great
times to save money.
You can also buy in markets, instead of
boutiques and malls.
Hopefully, the recession will pass soon, but
meanwhile, Nigerians should start learning to
how to cope.
The United States has identified dialogue and
practical efforts in the development of the Niger
Delta, as veritable means to resolve the security
and other related challenges of the region.
The Deputy Head of Mission of the United States
Embassy in Nigeria, Ambassador David Young,
stated this during a courtesy call on Bayelsa
State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson in
Government House, Yenagoa on Wednesday.
The Envoy, who is visiting Bayelsa for the first
time, implored the Federal Government to put in
place measures that would improve the living
conditions of the Niger Delta people.
While calling on all stakeholders to embrace
dialogue, as part of the process of resolving the
crisis in the region, Young observed that
successive governments in the country have been
making efforts to achieve the best possible
means to deploy the wealth generated from the
Niger Delta to impact on the lives of the people.
According to him, the US government was ready
to partner with Nigeria and Bayelsa state in the
area of funding development and economic
prosperity, through a variety of programmes,
including agriculture, health, education and
maritime security, without losing focus on
transparency and fiscal responsibility.
Young said, “The US government feels very
strongly that all stakeholders should be engaged
in dialogue, as part of the process to arrive at
equitable and fair solution for all involved.
“We believe that a bit of challenge for Nigeria, is
to transform the region of oil wells (the Niger
Delta) into improvement in the life of the average
Deltan. And, that is something we feel very
“We encourage Nigerians to work for common
goals as against violence and criminal activities.
We encourage Nigeria to establish conditions and
mechanisms for lasting change over time and
provide economic opportunities and services for
Deltans… US provides assistance to the region,
through maritime security training, aviation
security, treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS,
good governance planning, agric system and a
number of other activities. So we want to be
In his response, Dickson lamented the level of
environmental damage in the Niger Delta and
renewed his call on multinational corporate
organisations, particularly the oil majors to
adhere to international standards in their
operations in the region.
While calling for caution on the part of troops,
being deployed to the region, Governor Dickson
said that, the solution to the problems of the
Niger Delta lies squarely on development and
environmental justice, which he noted, could only
be achieved through meaningful dialogue.
Describing the environment as a critical heritage
of any people, the Governor commended the
Federal Government for kick-starting the
Ogoniland Clean-Up Programme and called for its
extension to other parts of the region, stressing
that Bayelsa environment remains the most
polluted in the Niger Delta.
According to him, as the place where oil was
first struck in commercial quantity, Bayelsa
records an average of three oil pollutions in a
day and requires a special attention from the
Federal Government and the multi-Nationals.
Dickson expressed gratitude to the US envoy and
his team for the visit, and solicited their
assistance in the areas of education,
infrastructural development and promotion of
peace and stability in the Niger Delta.
His said, “We believe that the issues of the Niger
Delta are not such that can be resolved by
means of confrontation or show of military
strength. We believe that these are essentially
issues of development; they are issues about the
“So, we as a government, community leaders,
corporate executives particularly the oil majors
that are operating here and the Federal
Government, its agencies and the friends of our
country should work together to resolve the
challenges of the Niger Delta.
“These are issues that working together sincerely
and following a clear roadmap, we think can be
resolved in such a way that communities will be
prosperous; Government, agencies and
businesses within our region will benefit from the
overall climate of stability and security that will
be generated when there is a consensus building
effort. That is where we stand and I believe that
has been the position of the US Mission.”
Neymar scored the winning goal as
Brazil defeated Colombia 2-1 to
maintain their 2018 World Cup
qualifying resurgence on Tuesday.
Barcelona superstar Neymar swept
home a 74th-minute strike at Manaus’s
Arena Amazonia to settle a pulsating
encounter between the two rivals.
It was a sweet victory for Neymar,
who has unhappy memories from
recent encounters with Colombia.
The 24-year-old suffered a
tournament-ending injury against
Colombia during Brazil’s ill-fated 2014
World Cup campaign.
A year later Neymar was sent off in a
stormy battle between the two sides at
the 2015 Copa America in Chile, and
subsequently banned for four matches.
Neymar’s second-half winner came
after Brazil had taken the lead in the
second minute through Inter Milan
defender Miranda, heading home his
first ever international goal on his
