The Sun - Blatant disregard for checking basic facts!

3 Bulls of April: Inspirational story of Kalu, Dangote and Adenuga.
By Mike Awoyinfa and Dimgba Igwe

is the title of yet another "sensational" and obviously irrelevant headline of SUN newspapers. "Na today you know?" might be your response but seeing that the Authors of the said article are both the MD and DMD of SUN, I assumed it would have substance. What triggered my anger lies toward the end of the first paragraph

"Now, what the three men of money have in common is the fact that they were all born in April under the Taurus zodiac sign of the bull. Otunba Mike Adenuga will be 55 on April 29. Aliko Dangote was 51 on April 10 and Dr. Orji Kalu would be 48 on April 21. "

I immediadely detected a very big flaw in that statement. Tarus is April 21- May 21. DANGOTE is ARIES!! (March 21 - April 20) (Orji barely made it)

The essence of this my writing is to show how low Nigerian journalism has sunk. If the HEAD journalists of “the king of the tabloid” can make such a grave error , what is expected of their subordinates? Grave, because that is what the whole article is hinged on. Pleasing their boss Orji Kalu (He owns SUN) should not mean they should be so ……..

Why we should support Obama

I want you to be a part of history in the making, be a part of CHANGE you can believe in. Everyone has a part to play and should play it to the best of their ability. Looking back you will be glad you played a role.
Barack Obama an African in American is making history in his quest to become the next president of the USA. Obama is a representation of us all. I will not go into the political reasons why we all should choose him rather I wish to elaborate on the positive impact it will have on this generation. We all know the negative impact slavery has had on this world especially on the psychology on descendants of former slaves and black people all over the world. This is the time for healing. A BLACK man in the WHITE house will go a very long way in removing that stigma that has made us blacks believe that we are second rate. It will show us that we can aspire and succeed in occupying the most powerful positions in this world. It will show black kids and other minorities that it isn’t only in entertainment they can excel and stop them from believing that they are handicapped because of their color. I assure you that it will go a very long way.
You must not be in the US to have an impact. What I implore you to do is simple. Contact every eligible voter in the US you know to please vote for Obama. The next primaries are in Ohio and Texas On the 5th of March. We have families there. Just ask them to GO OUT AND VOTE!! If possible call on the day and push them out of the house, school or office to be a part of history. I doubt that this is a difficult task. Please forward this to as many people you can thank you. You then would have played a part in making history happen.
