A rash of break- ins at Tri-State phone stores -- and the high price thieves are getting for the goods, should put anyone who carries a cell phone on alert.
The most recent burglary happened on Monday
morning at a Sycamore Township Verizon store. Crooks ripped off two
stores on Mall Road in Florence in recent days -- as well as ones in
West Chester and Sharonville. Local 12's Paula Toti shows us what we
should be doing to protect our own phones.

May 11, the congress for Progressive Change, CPC, one of the merging
parties in the evolving APC will hold its convention to among other
things ratify the merger. The Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN had
already done theirs a forthright ago. The All Nigeria Peoples Party,
ANPP will hold their convention this month. Only the All Progressives
Grand Alliance, APGA, where the Imo State governor elected on its
platform unilaterally took a rump of the party in the state to the APC,
is left in the cold.
As the curtain draws on the conventions,
the focus will move to the election of a standard bearer for the party
in the 2015 elections. Already, grand alliances, and jostlings for the
ticket are intensifying.
On the card are former military head of
state and thrice presidential candidate of the ANPP and CPC, in the
2003, 2007, and 2011 presidential elections, General Muhammadu Buhari
(Rtd). Former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Malam
Nasir El-rufai, former Kano State governor Mallam Shehu Ibrahim Shekerau
and speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, whose
rumoured romance with the APC is gaining ground each passing day.
APC, according to its leading founder and leader of the ACN, Asiwaju
Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a child of circumstance. Its ultimate mission is to
drive the process that will send the PDP packing. With the popularity

control of the South-West of the ACN in the South-west, the calculation
is to achieve through these two broad divides, more than 60% of the
electoral votes at first count in 2015, leaving only the South East and
South South to the PDP. In a solidarity show over the emergence of the
party, many disenchanted PDP leaders are said to be having a sizzling
romance with the party; a situation that has kept the leadership
hierarchy of the party on its toes.

Babangida, a former PDP presidential aspirant upped the ante by
sensationally nominating Tambuwal to go for presidential ticket in a
situation where the second term ambition of president Goodluck Jonathan
has not been foreclosed. A huge chunk of the governors, elected on PDP
platform including eclectic chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum,
NGF, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, and Niger State Governor, Aliyu Babangida
have barely concealed their involvement in the APC. The party,
therefore, from this outlook is already taking the shape and form of PDP
in size, content and vision.
