Buhari And The Magic Number 4

The winner of the APC presidential ticket, General Muhammadu Buhari, makes his 4th attempt at becoming the Nigerian President.
The year being 2014, Buhari wins the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
With 7,214 accredited delegates, Buhari scored 3,430 votes amounting to about 47% of the total possible votes.
I reckon that the top 4 aspirants in the primary election all scored votes with the number 4 after all votes were counted?
Buhari 3,430 - Kwankwaso 974 - Atiku 954 - Okorocha 624.
Going down history lane, General Muhammadu Buhari was born on December 17, 1942
He was the military ruler of Nigeria from December 31, 1983 to August 27, 1985, this means that he spent only the entire 1984 as the Nigerian Head of State.
Now he is attempting to become Nigeria's 4th democratically elected President in the 4th Republic.
Could General Muhammadu Buhari be 4th time lucky?

Your Smart Phone, Your Smart Future

Recently, I delivered a 3-hour presentation on 'New Media Content Development & Journalism' at the Lagos State University School of Communication.
Not only did we equip the students with online tools for employability, we also shared the 21st century Social Media Business opportunity.
This is a revolutionary social network business sweeping across the world and freshly launching on the African continent.
As a young Nigerian with a deep passion for the younger ones, I hadn't seen a more success-driven group of young people in recent time.
They embraced the possibilities of financial liberty, bombarding me with an avalanche of questions about how to do the big time legitimately and making the best of their smart phones to "google" every information provided... I was glad to let it all out, that is my purpose - SHARING.
Now, IMAGINE taking our Social Media Business Seminar to more students and young professionals. Imagine the number of young Africans who would be empowered by taking advantage of the continent's fast growing online community.
Thanks to China, because of the affordability of smart phones, the internet has now become accessible to millions of people across the world, especially in developing economies and that is where the opportunity is.
Research has shown that by the end of 2014, 65% of the world's primary personal computing devices will be smart phones.
By the year 2020, 80% of the adults on earth would own a smartphone.
NOW is the time to get on the train, to rule that future.
Let's get 2020 started HERE
