ASTROLOGICAL COUNSELLING ASTROLOGICAL COUNSELLING Send your date e and place of birth th to the Astr trological Counselling, P.M.B 100 007, 7, Apapa, Lagos About my success? Dear Joshua, I am interested in your Astrological counselling. Kindly tell me everything about myself, especially my finance and career; would I be rich eventually, if yes what should I do to make it happen quickly. Akande-Ogun, Dear Akande, There are indications of financial success for you but you can not change what Almighty God Has designed for you talking about the timing (the quickness you talked in your letter) Certainly however no failure for you YOUR CAREER LINE Mercury –the planet of education and Accountancy, together with mighty Sun at positive angle to planets in Virgo (another Accounting Star sign) attracted you to Accountancy profession (the academic world). Truly you did not make wrong choice of career. Money will eventually come along this line but it’ll not be as faster as if you take to OIL RELATED BUSINESS. Because Neptune (the planet of OIL) was very comfortable when you were born. It will not be out of place if you have filling stations as time goes by, because you are basically a GAS PERSON. Another money spinning vocation for you include writing either along your line or for film making industry; it is important you exhibit the higher quotient of creativity in your inner-self. Yes your dream of becoming A Professor will come to reality. Politics is another area you are not looking at now but will surely come. Venus that was powerfully placed when you were born is all about MONEY. Thus you have special ability to make money. And as it was at positive angle to disciplined Saturn, you are not giving to serious frivolity. One major challenge here is envy by others but you will eventually overcome. Another source of challenges is your love life which looks not totally balanced. VIRGINIA HOME & ABROAD By Lawrence Akapa

President of the organisation, Isah Abubakar made the appeal yesterday in Yenagoa while presenting an award of excellence to the Commander of the JTF, Rear Admiral Apochi Suleiman. Abubakar lamented that the spate of insecurity in parts of the north had become worrisome hence the need for the leadership of the JTF to share intelligence with sister security forces to tackle the menace. He said: “The operation noted that “The problem is that government policy may be in one direction, while we as partners may be in another direction. “The budgetary system is often limited thereby compounding the problems of lack of accountability.

Also, the role that the joint military force has played in securing the national assets is commendable.’’ Responding, Suleiman told the youths that the Niger Delta environment cannot be compared to the north saying, “the scenarios are not the same and what we are doing here (Niger Delta) might not be able to curb the happenings there.”
