Did Yaddy have to do anything?

Democracy ran it's full course. Yar'adua respected the democratic institutions that the contitution in its wisdom so structured, and didnt interfere. The people spoke, the members battled, he continued his own job of building the nation. And at the end Etteh went down - in a completely democratic process!

Did Yar'adua have to decend into the arena of battle? Did he have to interfere in the process? Did he have to soil his hands for democracy to work? Aren't those whole insisted he had to step in thoroughtly ashamed of themselves now?

Yaddy Hits Bull's Eye - Again!

Please can someone join me in giving applause to President Yar'adua for this resounding eloquence of intellect... HERE


People forget that we had a similar situation in the past when, following a crisis which also bordered on allegations of corruption and abuse of office in the legislative arm, the then President, in a national broadcast, told the world that certain members of the National Assembly took bribes", he posited.According to him, "one of the two former House of Representatives members publicly indicted in that unfortunate episode, one is a Governor and the other a Senator", he noted.

He pointed out that "neither of them was even indicted in the report compiled by the same government before the April elections, raising questions about the propriety of executive intervention on an issue that is better internally resolved by the legislature or at best adjudicated upon by the judiciary.Yar'Adua who spoke through, his Special Adviser on communications maintained that his oath of office demands of him to act within the law at all times hence his resort to the dictates of the rule of law.

"The importance of the rule of law, which has become an article of faith for President Yar'Adua, and adhering strictly to the principle of separation of powers, lies partly in the arbitrary powers it denies to individuals and the discipline it imposes on all and sundry", he argued. PLEASE, EVERYONE, NOTE!

Tara's Day of Glory!

The Hall at Tara's 10th Annivesary ... breath-taking orange ...

Last sunday, Nigeria joined Tara Fela-Durotoye to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of House of Tara, and the launch of her new perfume range, Be Inspired. It was a beautiful evening with some of the most colorful people around ... people you want to share a moment like that with.

RedSTRAT was in charge of the event's media management, and we are proud of the success that it was - and prouder of the role model that Tara is - incidentally she was also Young Person of the Year 2007 at the Awards.

Plenty of pictures can be got on Purefoto or via Bella's blog
