  • Former Delta SSG, Ovuozorie Macaulay was not Arrested by EFCC- OM Foundation

    Macaulay; The past SSG to the Delta State Government

    Mr. Ovuozorie Macaulay has not been arrested by the EFCC. This was contained in a statement signed in Delta state Barrister Nath Obah, the Director, Ovuozorie Macaulay Foundation. This was released after there have been insinuations from different quarters on his purported arrest.

    The statement reads:

    Our attention has been drawn to a story on the Internet with the caption “EFCC CLAMPDOWN ON DELTA FORMER SSG”

    Firstly, we want to state it boldly and clearly that it is false. The story was an incompetent product of fiction, so shallow and vacuous that even its authors could not validate its credibility with reliable and verifiable sources.

    The story alerted the general public that there are some people of bad faith trying tooth and nail to spread blatant lies, bereft of any iota of truth or even logic just to tarnish the good reputation of the former SSG. This is a cheap attempt, albeit, political move to drag the name of Mr. Ovuozorie Macaulay into some ghost stories.

    We would ordinarily have ignored the malicious report, but chose to react, lest our silence would be mistaken for confirmation of the falsehoods published against the person of Mr. Ovuozorie Macaulay.

    I therefore appeal to journalist to cross-check every information to avoid feeding the public with unfounded stories.

    Mr. Macaulay is the former Secretary to the Delta State Government in the past administration headed by His Excellency Emmanuel Udughagan.

  • Nokia Stages a Major Comeback into in The Industry in 2017

    Nokia mobile phones when the brand was a market leader.

    Nokia, the once popular smartphone brand before its demise is set to come back into the market with a bang.

    This news is quite surprising as many had expected that the brand was dead and gone but HMD Global — a new mobile company made up of ex-staffers — is looking to use the name to manufacture smartphones running Android as well as feature phones.

    This brand, HMD Global have now acquired the rights to use the name, trademark and other rights of the brand for 10 years! Here’s an excerpt from the announcement;

    Finnish company HMD will bring a new generation of mobile phones to consumers, with the first smartphone products set to be launched in the first half of 2017, alongside the existing branded feature phone business.

    The launch of HMD comes just six months after the company signed a strategic licensing agreement with Nokia, giving HMD exclusive use of the Nokia brand on mobile phones and tablets worldwide for the next 10 years.

    HMD has developed a unique strategic partnership model that will see it working with some of the world’s leading technology companies including Nokia, FIH Mobile Limited (FIH) and Google. Future Nokia smartphones will utilise Google’s Android operating system, currently deployed on 86% of the world’s smartphones.

    HMD is developing an exciting new consumer centric product range which will focus on innovation, quality and experience, alongside the iconic Nokia mobile phone attributes of design, robustness, and reliability.

    According to Arto Nummela, who was head at Microsoft and before the collapse of the former company, he was obviously happy to restart the once market-leading brand.

    Isn’t this amazing?
