The Supreme Court of Nigeria has recently delivered its judgment on the appeals filed by the presidential candidates of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP) against the election of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general election. The apex court affirmed Tinubu's victory and dismissed the appeals by Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and Peter Obi of the LP, who challenged Tinubu's eligibility, academic qualification, and electoral performance.
The ruling may have ended the legal dispute over the presidential election, but it has also brought up important issues regarding the Supreme Court's authority and role in Nigerian democracy. Is the Supreme Court's decision definitive and final? Does it not need to be reviewed and overseen by parliament? What consequences result from giving the Supreme Court, which consists of a mere seven judges, the authority to decide on 200 million people's electoral fate?
Following the ruling, a lot of Nigerians have been asking themselves these kinds of questions. While some have praised the result as a win for justice and democracy, others have voiced their displeasure and resentment with it. Nevertheless, it is crucial to weigh the benefits and disadvantages of having a Supreme Court decision that cannot be contested or overturned by any other body, irrespective of one's political inclinations or affiliation.
One argument in favor of a final Supreme Court decision is that it gives electoral disputes finality and certainty. It avoids never-ending court cases and appeals, which might exacerbate the nation's unrest and uncertainty. Additionally, it guarantees that the judiciary would respect and uphold the people's will as expressed through their votes. Additionally, because it keeps other branches of government and interest groups from interfering or exerting influence, it strengthens the Supreme Court's independence and integrity.
Nonetheless, there are certain disadvantages to a final Supreme Court decision. One of the concerns is that it might compromise the idea of checks and balances, which is necessary for a robust democracy. The Supreme Court might end up with more authority than the other branches of government, particularly the legislature, if it is granted the last say in presidential succession decisions. This could weaken the executive's democratic accountability and responsiveness to the legislature and the public.
It might also restrict the extent and caliber of judicial review and investigation, which is another disadvantage. Making the Supreme Court's decision final may deter or prohibit more investigation into any abnormalities or irregularities that might have happened during or after the election. Additionally, it might prohibit the court from making any improvements or corrections to any faults or inaccuracies that might have occurred in its ruling. It might also prevent any chance for opposing or dissenting viewpoints to be heard or taken into account by other legislative or judicial authorities.
Therefore, it may be argued that having a final Supreme Court verdict is not necessarily beneficial for Nigeria's democracy. It may create more problems than it solves, and it may jeopardize some of the democratic values and principles that Nigerians cherish and aspire for. Henceforth, in my opinion, I think that the decision(s) or supreme court verdict should not be final, but rather, be subjected to parliamentary review. This would ensure that there is a balance of power between the different branches of government, and that there is a transparent and accountable process of resolving electoral disputes. It would also enhance the legitimacy and credibility of both the judiciary and the executive, as well as foster public trust and confidence in Nigeria's democracy.

Nigeria, Africa's most populous country and the world's sixth most populous, marks its 63rd anniversary of independence today, October 1, 2023. Many Nigerians, however, have little or nothing to take pleasure in or celebrate, as the country faces numerous issues that have destroyed its potential and possibilities.
Since gaining independence from Britain in 1960, Nigeria has been plagued by successive leadership failures, corrupt leaders who prioritize personal interests over public interest, poor infrastructure, a lack of health care facilities, insecurity, and economic woes; today, a dollar exchanges for over a thousand niara on the foreign exchange market. All of these factors have led to Nigeria's poor performance in different indicators of economic growth and development.
Nigeria's GDP per capita in 2020 was $2,229, putting it 149th out of 189 nations, according to the World Bank. In 2019, the country's human development index (HDI), which evaluates inhabitants' quality of life, was 0.539, ranking it 161st out of 189 countries. In 2020, the country ranked 131st out of 190 in the ease of doing business index, which evaluates the regulatory environment for enterprises.Nigeria
Moreover, Nigeria has been grappling with the problem of poverty and inequality for decades. According to the World Poverty Clock, Nigeria is the world's poverty capital, with about 105 million people living in extreme poverty as of October 2020. This means that more than half of the country's population survives on less than $1 per day. The poverty situation is worsened by the high rate of unemployment, which stood at 33.3% as of December 2020.
In addition to the economic challenges, Nigeria also faces security threats from various sources, such as the Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast, the banditry and kidnapping in the northwest, the farmer-herder clashes in the middle belt, oil theft in the Niger-delta and the separatist agitation in the southeast. These conflicts have claimed thousands of lives and displaced millions of people from their homes.
Furthermore, Nigeria suffers from poor infrastructure and lack of basic amenities, such as electricity, water, roads, and health care. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Nigeria's health system is ranked 187th out of 191 countries in terms of overall performance. The country has one of the lowest ratios of doctors to patients in the world, with about four doctors per 10,000 people. The country also has one of the highest maternal and child mortality rates in the world, with about 800 women dying from pregnancy-related causes per 100,000 live births and about 120 children dying before their fifth birthday per 1,000 live births.
Given these grim realities, it is hard to find any reason to celebrate Nigeria's independence anniversary. The country has failed to live up to its potential and aspirations as the giant of Africa and a leader in the continent. The country has also failed to deliver on its social contract with its citizens, who have been denied their basic rights and dignity.
Therefore, as Nigeria marks its 63rd year as a sovereign nation, it is time for its leaders and citizens to reflect on the past mistakes and failures and chart a new course for the future. It is time for Nigeria to embrace good governance, accountability, transparency, rule of law, and respect for human rights and shun all forms of electoral malpractices especially the type we saw in just concluded general election. It is time for Nigeria to invest in its human capital, infrastructure, security, and social welfare. It is time for Nigeria to unite and work together for a common goal of peace and prosperity. It is time for Nigeria to rise from its ashes and reclaim its glory and assert herself in the committee of nations.

The GREAT MERCURIOUS CONFRATERNITY have always been both venerated and feared throughout the world, but perhaps none so much as in Hindu, Tantric and African traditions. What are the Naga? They are the Lords of ancient times, more akin to the Orishas of Santeria than to the remote gods of Olympus. And, like the Orishas, they are far more accessible. magic is more than a mythic and historical account of the Naga. It is also a ‘Grimoire’ of practical and spiritual rituals. spirits are seen everywhere in African iconography and practices, but because of the extremely ancient and ‘grass roots’ origin of their worship, they are only rarely mentioned in traditional religious texts. This parallels the prehistoric worship of similar spirits across the ancient world in many places under many names. In most Eastern and Western animist or African traditions, demigods are positive beings manifesting as spiritual guardians. Often these spirits are associated with springs, rivers, lakes and oceans as well as the numinous chthonian world below, as are the GREAT MERCURIOUS CONFRATERNITY . wisdom has the power to enlighten us about the ancient, often forgotten spirits, their magician rituals and their place in helping us to heal Nature. Whether you wish to learn the history and mythos of the Spirits, or if you wish to work directly with these luminous beings, Magic provides unique access to the power and wisdom of the Lords. THE GREAT MERCURIOUS CONFRATERNITY Magic’s includes many Illustrations and an extensive Glossary.

Longing for infinity is at the core of every living being, constant from their, from our inception into life, into the Universe, to our greatest fulfillment, constant right along with our pursuit of happiness. Going beyond what we have become, reaching from where we are towards greater subtleties is innate with all beings, and having attained human form, we have extraordinarily greater potentiality, and capabilities to actualize, magnificent thresholds of being, both physically and especially internally, psychically.

We imagine them because the capability for achieving them, the architecture of their potentiality is awake within our being, our pursuit of infinity awakening us to such capabilities. Living in an extremely materialistic era, more often than not we invent machines to do what we can also do psychically, When we are deeply and constantly in love with someone, we also remote view their well-being when we are physically away or perceive foreshado
wings of possible events regarding ourselves or our loved ones.Do you want wealth.?
Do you you want riches?
Do you want life improvement?
ALL THESE WILL BECOME YOURS ONCE YOU BECOME A MEMBER OF THE GREAT MERCURIOUS CONFRATERNITY OCCULT.
What are the MERCURIOUS CONFRATERNITY Occult Powers?
1)- ability to become very little, to reduce the vibration of the mind to penetrate an atom and know the secrets of subatomic structure.
MERCURIOUS CONFRATERNITY reducing one’s psychic existence into a small point and then transforming it into a minimum entity. One may understand anything and everything by entering into each and every physical particle and becoming one with the different waves of expressions and emanations, by dancing with the waves of objects and ideas. This occult power acquired through positive microvita is called an’ima’. The only way to understand these subtle entities is to increase one’s powers of perception through spiritual practices.
2) MERCURIOUS CONFRATERNITY OCCULT— ability to become very great, more immense than anything in this expressed uni verse, including the universe itself.
Mahima’ means vastness. With the help of positive microvita, the mind can expand to become vast, superlatively vast. Its radius may encompass the entire universe and so we acquire ideas about many different subjects without reading books. In this way, too, we may feel our oneness with the varied entities of this universe — unity in variety, unity in diversity. By associating our benevolent thoughts with each and every entity, we will contribute to universal progress and prosperity.
3) Laghima’ — ability to become very light, to walk on water, to think oneself anywhere in the universe. Achieved by controlling the psychic centre between the man’ipu’ra and ana’hata cakras, controlling the combination of fire and air.
Laghima’ makes the mind light, free from the bondage of so many liabilities. This carefree mind, freed from so many fetters and bondages, can understand and think clearly. So by dint of this occult power, one may understand any idea, subtle or crude, abstract or concrete. Unless you understand how much pain and sorrow is accumulated in other’s minds, how many tears well up in their eyes, and anguish in their hearts, you cannot completely alleviate their sorrows and sufferings. Through laghima, your own mind becomes unburdened so you can clearly appreciate and respect others’ lives.
4) Pra’pti — ability to get or create whatever is desired; whatever is thought is immedi ately materialized.
Pra’pti means helping oneself and helping the souls of so many people to acquire and be benefited by the grace of the Supreme Consciousness.
5) Iishitva — ruling capacity, ability to understand all the entities of the universe, to direct and witness their actions. Achieved by controlling the upper portion of vishuddha cakra.
Iishitva – Iish means to guide and administer. Iishitva enables the spiritual aspirant to guide other people who suffer from different causes. So many people in this world are crying in pain and agony. So many miseries and afflictions paralyse both physically and mentally. lishitva enables one to correctly lead afflicted humanity to their physical progress and psychic well-being.
ability to bring under control, to unify forces, to create new life, to make the dead rise. Achieved by controlling the upper portion of a’jina’ cakra.
Vashitva means to keep everything under control and properly regulated for the welfare of all beings. In order to bring people goaded by defective ideas to the path of optimal greatness, vashitva is necessary. If people work haphazardly and do not follow conscientious path, they cannot be expected to establish a state of welfare for all. So if you really want to help people, you will have to inspire and influence them in a positive way, and then direct them along the right path to their goal.
7)Praka’myam — ability to take the form of anything. Achieved by controlling the psychic center just below a’jina’ cakra.
Praka’mya means the ability to accomplish whatever one desires, to translate wish into reality disposed to promote universal welfare, to bring light to the entire universe. Through this occult power, spiritual aspirants acquire the capacity to serve the entire world.
8) ability to see into the inner nature of any entity; penetrating vision.
Antarya’mitva is to enter the ectoplasmic or endoplasmic structure of others and thereby to know their pain and pleasures, their hopes, aspirations and longings and to guide them properly. It is somewhat like transmigration of the soul. Regarding this occult power, spiritual cult alone will not suffice — it requires the special grace of Parama Purusa. He usually does not give this power to sadhakas because if they do not possess universal love, it can be abused for personal gains. Baba explained that this power makes the mind so subtle that it can enter the intra- and inter-ectoplasmic mind stuff of every individual as well as the collective human society.

Tragedy struck on Thursday in Gurmana town of Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State as a canoe conveying locals fleeing from bandits’ attacks capsized.
SaharaReporters gathered that all passengers in the canoe drowned during the incident.
“As a proactive measure, the victims upon hearing about the terrorists’ attacks on adjoining villages decided to run for their lives but the boat they were using capsized due to strong waves.
Niger State has witnessed a series of attacks by suspected bandits in recent times, leading to scores of deaths.
More than 2,000 people have fled their villages in Shiroro Local Government Area after bandits' attack left more than 100 people killed and several more injured during a recent incident.
Nasarawa State government says it will launch a website where unemployed youth will be registered across the state and afford them the opportunity to select skill acquisition of their choice.
Othman said that registration will commence in the first week of August and that the ministry of youth and sport development will release the link for prospective youth to register.
He said government will use the website for job consideration when the need arises while urging youths across the state to take advantage and get registered
Othman said that the idea is to also have a database of potential and unemployed youths across the state and register them according to the career of their choice.
He said that the portal will be designed in such a way that registered youth will be afforded the opportunity to also select skill acquisition of their choice and be trained so as to be self-reliant.
“Registered youth will state their qualification, for those who are educated, while those who are not fortunate to attend school will also have their names and equally make a career choice.”
Othman explained that the portal will also give government statistical data of the number of unemployed youths across the state and plan
towards providing jobs for them.
“It will afford us the opportunity to also plan ahead on how to provide incentives to those that participate in any of the skill acquisition programme.
“We are out to ensure that we capture the majority of our talented youths who are not gainfully employed but can train on becoming self-reliant.
“This government is conscious of the fact that the youth form the majority of the population but lack what to do. So we will design the website in such a way that other agencies can have access and may have professionals with skills that can work in their agencies.
“For instance, if we have a construction job in the state that needs builders and other professionals, we will click on the site and go to the space for builders and select those eligible and send to the contractor for consideration. So we don’t need to start advertising or going out looking for them.”
