Dr Wael Aggan, CEO of CloudMask reacts to David Cameron’s plans for encryption: “David Cameron should not be convincing companies to offer less security to their customers. He should be doing just the opposite. The law specifically ensures that companies are not required to be an agent of the state but rather serve their own IP and the privacy interests of their customers.

Nigeria in the time of life



Dr Goodluck Ebele Nnamdi Jonathan (GENJ) Nigeria's currrent President
Dr Goodluck Ebele Nnamdi Jonathan (GENJ) Nigeria's currrent President and Presidential flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party. (a.k.a POVERTY DISTRIBUTION PARTY)...the King in the parable of the Minas promoted the profitable servant on grounds of competitive performance and entrusted to him more responsibilities, and not for non-performance or hereditary privilege. Lest we forget, in life, all those who wait for good luck never bother about working hard!
