Shola Oshunkeye Is The 2006 CNN African Journalist of the Year

I congratulate Nigerian journalist, Shola Oshunkeye who is the winner of the 2006 CNN MultiChoice African Journalist of the Year Award.

His entry titled 'Niger's Graveyard of the Living; which he wrote while working for Tell Magazine, was picked ahead of 18 other finalists. The story was on the 2005 draught in Niger Republic. An obviously overwhelmed Oshunkeye dedicated the award to his wife and to his former employer,Tell Magazine. The same story had earlier won the MKO Abiola prize for Print Journalist, at the individual category stage.

Nigerian Times Statement on the War in the Middle East:
Hezbollah is a terrorist organization and has no legal status. Therefore the UN cannot engage in any dialogue with Hezbollah. And the UN should hold Lebanon, Syria and Iran responsible for the lawlessness of Hezbollah in the Middle East.

Hezbollah has worsened the state of emergency in Lebanon and Palestine.
