The famous Big Ben's to be renamed "The Elizabeth Tower," in honor of The Queen, is supported by many MPs and David Cameron, based on a proposal this week. Many believe the Diamond Jubilee is the perfect time to honor Her Majesty.
Considering her six decades of service (The queen deserves it), the House of Commons is likely to easily pass the measure when it meets soon.
Prime Minister David Cameron is among 331 lawmakers who have signed up to a campaign to bestow the tribute to Queen Elizabeth to mark her 60th year on the throne, the Daily Mail reported.
It mirrors an honour bestowed on queen Victoria — the first British monarch to celebrate a diamond jubilee, back in 1897 — after whom the square tower at the other end of the Houses of Parliament was renamed.
“It is great news that so many MPs from across the House are backing what would be a fitting tribute to the queen. I hope it will now move ahead,” the Mail quoted Cameron as saying.
The 96-metre (316-foot) tower is also known as the clock tower but is commonly known as Big Ben after the huge bell that it holds, whose distinctive “bongs” sound out the hours in central London. The next time you are in London, don't look for the Big Ben, look for Elizabeth's Tower.


I am hoping and praying, somebody missed that flight or survived the crash....Lord please, a miracle!

Some Passengers before departure.....That's the flight!

The president has declared three days of mournings for the departed. For those who missed the flight.... It is nothing short of a miracle, i just believe some people did and i am hoping somebody survives....praying for that miracle.
 Those worried about their loved ones can call Nigerian aviation authorities at these numbers: 017936118, 08055799803, 017374531


 While our Givernment is focused on renaming the University of Lagos, safety is no longer guaranteed. No security no safety. it never ceases to amaze me and Nigerian TV stations are not even showing any news at the scene. I bet some people must have heard it first on CNN.  You just wonder why we so take things for granted in this country, its rare to find the news while its hot on any station.... annmoying lukewarmness of reporting in Nigeria.Very soon, Government officials will come on air and speak grammer, do usual.
 Two sad things happened today and it  justa sign of the decay in this country. It is a sad weekend.

 A passenger plane belonging to Dana Airlines crashed  today at the Iju/Ishaga area of Lagos. The plane was carrying 153 passengers. The Flight from Abuja trying to land. Eye witnesses say the plane crashed into houses and human corpses are burning at the scene of the crash. NCAA has just confirmed that there were no survivors. There are also reports that the particular plane that crashed today had landing gear problem in Uyo a couple of weeks back. Too bad!

Body removed from building where plane crashed

In another sad news, a suicide bomber drove a car full of explosives into a church in northern Nigeria yesterday, killing 12 people in the latest deadly attack on Christian worshippers, witnesses said.The blast occurred at the Living Faith church near the capital of Nigeria's northern state of Bauchi, they said. State police commissioner Mohammed Ladan said a police checkpoint has prevented the bomber from gaining access to his target. "So he rammed the car into a security gate and the car exploded," said Ladan. While a police source told PTI that security forces are still verifying the extent of damage. The source said the death toll from the blast could rise. 
Amongst the passengers are Former broadcaster and NNPC General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mr Levi Ajuonuma and Ehime Aikhomu, son of former Vice President, Late Admiral Augustus Aikhomu, was also on board.....I hope Dana Air release the manifest in good time... Innocent people perishing. Just sad!


Security forces at a road block nearby said the bomber forced his car through the checkpoint and drove into the church in Yelwa, on the outskirts of the city of Bauchi.
A Reuters reporter at the scene counted 12 bodies being pulled from the building.
“I had just left after the morning service and was out of the church when I heard a loud explosion. I rushed back and there were dozens of people lying in pools of blood,” said Aliku Jon, a mechanic, adding that at least six people died instantly. “Many were injured including two police officers.”
It was not clear who was responsible for the attack, although churches have been targeted this year by militant Islamist group Boko Haram – which has increasingly used suicide bombers.
“I was just in the area when I heard a huge blast. The sound was so loud, my ears are still ringing,” said Samuel Etudu, who was outside the church when the explosion happened.

Rest in peace....all the departed souls and i just hope Goodluck Jonathan doesn't come up with nis usual does not solve anything. Our dreams must come true regardless of the struggles.... even in a failed system, we will not give up.
