It’s a Wonderful New Year



HURRAY! It’s a wonderful New Year. And today, the first Monday of the Year 2016, is very bright and beautiful with the dusty harmattan breeze blowing. A perfect day God has made. Hurray! It is also a day most workers and student returned back to offices and classrooms after the holidays.  At Realnews, we also resumed worked today in earnest after we went on a three-week break. As you, our dedicated readers, must have noticed since we started in 2012, we work all through the months of the year but close down for a much desired rest in December. We opted for end of the year break for most of our staff to go on vacation because most companies, institutions and organisations we cover choose the period to wound down their activities for the year. So, we also settle for that time of the Christmas to be near our loved ones, rest and refresh our tired bones to come back in the New Year to serve you better.

This is why we are going to begin with helping you to catch up on some stories you may have missed while on holidays and those that are just happening or developing as the case may be. As we have always done recently, we will serve you with our daily news updates followed with Realnews weekly magazine made up of in-depth analysis and well investigated news stories sent to our subscribers via our e-bulletin.
