News (Telecoms).

When your airtime meant strictly for calls is automatically converted to data – via auto-renewal service, frustration inevitably slaps your mind.

We have 4 major GSM service providers in Nigeria – 9-mobile, Globacom, MTN and Airtel.

One of these companies send codes for stopping auto-renewal (of data) via SMS to its customers after every auto-renewal BUT the code is no longer functioning and this should serve as reminder for the company to update its facilities.

Transportation and communication are crucial to societies and we appreciate these GSM service providers for many innovations they had introduced and many more in the future. Continue reading News (Telecoms).

God didn’t create the world and afterwards went back to sleep for He monitors, impacts events in life. The persistent balance of nature is attributable to the diligence of providence.

Your temperature, blood pressure, blood sugar … are balanced in health, imbalanced in ill-health and in fact many times it’s this imbalance that triggers illness.

I know life is in twos and the devil is the direct opposite of God and the exploits of God as well as the machinations of the devil are highlighted in the Holy Books and if I’d read about one and not the other then these materials would automatically become Mathematics – my waterloo in the past watershed, later!
