Welcome

strong>Hi Everybody! - This is the Home Page for "Eye Over Africa" 2016
Here we wish to celebrate in images and words the Magnificent Beauty of this our great continent called "Africa"

Welcome to Eye Over Africa April 2017,

As we all known Nigeria is going through a difficult period at the moment, the change of government two years ago promised so much after 16 years of unrivalled corruption, and mis-management of government on a colossal level, yet so little seems to have changed, the investigations into corruption the return of looted funds, yet we are still in an economic quagmire, with the value of the Naira at its lowest level ever, with the economy in tatters and the level of poverty the worst ever what hope for the remaining of 2017 and what does 2018 hold for us all?.

I finally finished my spell as head of Liberty Television Kaduna at the end of 2015 after over two years of building the station, equipping the station training the staff and managing the station, two years that saw Liberty TV launch on to the Nigerian scene, first we only broadcast within Kaduna on Startimes network, then nationally on the same platform, then on MultiTV we were seen across West Africa, from Cameroon, Ghana, Gabon, Niger, Chad, and even as far vas Sudan. Today Liberty is on FreeTV in Plateau state soon across the country and on 3rd October 2016 will be on the GoTV platform with DSTV.

I still run my weekly programme Global Reports on Thursdays 3.30pm live on the above platforms.
Here I review global news from the past week, together with TV reports from international TV stations and networks with images, I have a guest who will comment on the news as seen and we have an interactive session where viewers phone in, soon to be skype input we hope!
