Why Boko Haram rape victims should not abort pregnancies-Catholic Bishops

Featured Image

There has been a lot of controversy regarding the fate of women raped and impregnated by Boko Haram members .While some groups have said they should abort the babies, others have said the women should not.

The Catholic Bishop Conference of Nigeria has out rightly condemned those suggesting abortion. Chairman of the Health Committee of CBCN and Auxiliary Bishop of Abuja (Catholic Archdiocese), Most Rev. Anselm Umoren, stated this during a press conference on Monday in Abuja.

He said  such innocent children should not be visited  “with capital punishment” in the name of abortion for an offence they did not commit.
“Specifically, it is not tenable, the suggestion that killing the babies conceived through rape by the terrorists, is the most humane action to take in this instance.
Since the babies are ignorant and innocent of the crimes – aggression, sexual assault, dehumanisation – against their mothers, it is unethical to punish them for the sins and offences of their erring fathers.”He said

On The $67bn Debt: We Are Ready Anytime For Clarifications – Sambo

Featured Image

 

The Vice President-elect, Yemi Osinbanjo, has been accused by the PDP of misguiding the public on issues regarding the affairs of the economy.

 

The party claims the $67bn debt issue, as was recently raised by Professor Osinbanjo, was actually as a result of the profligate spending patterns of the APC-led States.

 

On Monday, May 25th, at the Presidential Villa, as he presented  copies of the handover notes to Ahmed Joda of the APC committee on transition, Sambo said members of the Federal Executive Council in Goodluck Jonathan’s government will be on ground whenever to clarify on knotty areas in the handover notes, if there ever are.

 

Sambo, in these words, said;

“The handover notes of the Federal Government of Nigeria of this administration between 2011 and 2015 have been properly articulated and printed.”

“The Permanent Secretaries of each ministry have signed each page of this report to authenticate it and it is our pleasure to present it to you and pray that it will guide you, guide the incoming administration towards the achievement of positive objectives, development and progress of Nigeria.”

Sambo said further: “I want to add that all of us are always available, after this report between now and May 29, anytime you need to meet with us we are ready to come and sit and clarify.”

“All the (Ministries, Departments and Agencies) MDAs will also be ready to meet with you, give you any additional or clarifications that you would want to have on this report that we are presenting”.

Why I lied about my age-Halima Abubakar

Featured Image

Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar has revealed she lied about her age earlier to fit in.The actress says she would be 30 in June,despite many thinking she is older.  She told Encomium

I will be 30 on June 12, 2015.When you say the truth, people argue. When you lie, they also argue. But I have said the truth, and I really don’t know what to do again. But when I came into Nollywood, I had to lie just to fit in because it’s an era of aunty, aunty. And I was in JSS II then. So, if people still can’t believe that I lied then just to fit in, that means they need a reality check. I am proud of my age.
But that’s the truth about my age. Or are you the one who issued me a birth certificate? I am 30 and I am proud of it.

Over 500 Persons Die In India Following Heatwave

Featured Image

 

In a terrific heat wave sweeping across India, over 500 lives have been lost, officials say.

 

Andrha Pradesh and Telangana have been worst hit, of all the states affected, with temperatures getting as severe as 48°C in some cases.

 

The heat wave has been on for a while, starting sometime in April, but has led to the most casualties in the last 10 days. Authorities say the death toll could actually be more given some of the deaths in the remote parts of country aren’t brought to public notice. It’s even more severe, most times deadly, in these regions as the labourers and cycle-rickshaw drivers can barely afford to eke out a living without working in spite of the harsh conditions.

 

Authorities have advised that the people take preventive measures seeing as the heat conditions would linger for coming days, into weeks maybe.

Africa to receive $33bn via mobile money this year

Featured Image

VENTURES AFRICA – Since M-Pesa was launched in 2007 by Vodafone, mobile money has become an African phenomenon. The continent continues to lead the rest of the world in the adoption and usage of the payment technology. This progress is expected to attain a new leap according to WorldRemit, a global money transfer company. The UK-based money transfer firm has predicted that the amount of money that will sent to sub-Saharan Africa via mobile technology will reach $33 billion this year.

As Africa’s largest economy, Nigeria alone is projected to capture more than half of these funds while Kenya, South Africa and Uganda will also take significant chunks as they represent the continent’s largest money transfer market. WorldRemit reports that half of the 261 mobile money service providers across the globe are in sub-Saharan Africa.

Average mobile banking penetration across the continent hovers around 33 percent according to the African Development Bank (AfDB). But this is an aggregate figure that fails to capture the level of penetration in each sub-region. For instance, South Africa can boast of an 88 percent mobile banking penetration, though countries like Burundi trail behind at 7 percent. These figures are expected to increase as the necessary key drivers, including internet penetration and financial inclusion, continue to appreciate. Internet usage in the major mobile money markets, on the average, hover around 40 percent. Also, government intervention and regulation in the African financial services industry have increased the stability of financial institutions, which are now able to provide more financing packages to help telecommunication companies expand their coverage and quality of offerings.

Despite these achievements, a huge gap remains that could potential be exploited by mobile money. “There are currently two and a half billion unbanked people in the world,” says Alix Murphy, Senior Mobile Analyst at WorldRemit. “One billion of these people already have access to a mobile phone and so a potential means of accessing financial services.”

The case for further mobile money adoption across the continent is clearly presented in the compelling value proposition it offers Africa. Apart from its celebrated role in boosting financial inclusion across the region, Mobile Money also saves the continent some $2 billion spent on inefficient transfer solutions every year.

Kris Jenner Wants Kendall To Hook Up With Lewis Hamilton Who Is Currently Linked To Her Bestie, Gigi Hadid

Featured Image

You can never keep up with the Kardashians no matter how hard you try.

Just yesterday, news broke that model, Gigi Hadid and Formula One driver, Lewis Hamilton (who broke up with longtime girlfriend, Nicole Scherzinger in February this year) were in a budding romance.

While we were trying to digest the news, another one broke, Lewis might not be staying long with Gigi who is also besties with Kendall (and who invited Kendall on a hangout with Lewis), but might actually be moving on to Kendall (who was spotted with Lewis’ bling on her neck on the track where she was hanging out with him and Gigi and their other friends).

Confused?

As you should be.

Kendall Jenner who is currently on top of her modeling game is best friends with Gigi but her mother, Kris Jenner was quoted to have said she thinks Lewis would be a good match for her daughter.

She thinks Kendall has always been into bad boys but Lewis would help calm her down if she hooked up with him.

And we all know when Kris gives her blessings, aint no backing down.

Not too long ago, she gave these world famous blessings to Kanye and Tyga publicly for her daughters, Kim and Kylie respectively.

And the relationship are yet to end.

So would Kendall take her bestie’s rumored boyfriend? We wait to see.

The Nigerian Customs Service Extorts Us – Oil Marketers

Featured Image

 

 

The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has been accused of collecting Temporary Importation Permit (TIP) to the tune of N2million in addition to an unofficial $30, ooo fee for any foreign-flagged vessel seen carrying petroleum products.

 

The oil marketers who operate under the Petroleum Support Fund (PSF) scheme have made public the illegal demands from members of the NCS, a figure amounting to a whooping N3 billion annually for the marketers to be granted access to bring in their oil vessels.

 

Meanwhile, a spokesperson of the NCS has swiftly refuted this claim stating that: “[the marketers] do not pay a dime as import duties for petrol,” contrary to claims from them. Wale Adeniyi also said the payment of the Temporary Importation Permit as claimed by marketers wasn’t on imported oil products but on for re-exported products.

 

But the marketers insist the extortion is real, saying the top authorities at the NCS are fully aware.

 

An oil exporter spoke further under anonymity:

“The scheme involves the extortion of $30,000 from agents by customs officials each time a foreign vessel bearing petroleum products berths at the ports. Averagely, 40 of such vessels arrive the nation’s shores every month, bringing the total amount raked in by the scheme to about N3 billion per annum. These payments are not receipted.”

 

NCS spokesperson, Wale Adeniyi, has since stated as untrue the claims that the Customs Service involves inany such acts of extortion.

PenCom Speaks On Why Over 3,000 Police Pensioners Were Removed

Featured Image

Following the dispute over the removal of 3,326 police pensioners from database, the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) has disclosed that the names of the affected police officers were removed from the pension list to show integrity to its work.

The spokesperson, Steve Omanufeme, in a statement revealed that the decision to carry out such activity was because it was trying to retain the credibility of PenCom.

The statement read: ‘The removal of unverified police pensioners from PTAD’s payroll, is to clean up and give credibility to our police pensioners’ database after a nationwide verification in which the affected pensioners did not turn up to be captured.

The removal of the affected names, as well as the call for supplementary verification is necessary to ensure pension is paid to genuine pensioners only. The question is how long are we supposed to pay this group of people who have not turned up to be captured after repeated calls for them to do so?”

Omanufeme said the names of the 3,326 police pensioners will be re-instated after they have been duly verified and their biometrics captured.

Botswana and Namibia clash over elephant poaching

Featured Image

VENTURES AFRICA – A diplomatic row has erupted between Southern African neighbours, Namibia and Botswana, after Botswana border patrol soldiers shot and killed three Namibian elephant poachers.

Last week, Botswana Defence Forces (BDF) said that its patrol team deployed in the Kwando area in northern Botswana shot and killed three poachers who were in possession of elephant tusks. “BDF commended Namibian rangers for information, which led to the successful interception of the poachers. The matter had since been handed over to Botswana Police Service for conclusion,” said Botswana Defence Force in a statement. However Namibia government  condemned the killing of its  nationals saying “Namibia does not condone poaching, but called for restraint when using force.”

Tshekedi Khama, Botswana’s Environment and Tourism Minister, revealed recently that the country’s government had adopted a “shoot-to-kill” policy against poachers as a radical measure to curb the mass slaughter of elephants in the country.

An increase in poaching has heightened the chances of a decline in elephant numbers. Over 40,000 elephants were killed since 2011, a 3 percent loss to the total number of elephants on the continent.

A recent joint-report by conservation group, Born Free USA, and C4ADS revealed that governments of seven African countries are supporting elephant poaching and illegal ivory trade.The report showed that senior government officials in DR Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Gabon and Mozambique are condoning and arming criminals who kill elephants and rhinos for their tusks and horns, respectively.

African business leaders must make decisions that promote development

Featured Image

VENTURES AFRICA – African businessman and philanthropist Tony Elumelu has called on business leaders to make decisions that will increase economic and social wealth, and promote development in the communities and nations in which they operate. Mr. Elumelu, the Chairman of Heirs Holdings and the Founder of the Tony Elumelu Foundation, stated this in a closing keynote speech titled,“Africapitalism as a Catalyst for Development in Africa” delivered at the Oxford Africa Conference, Oxford University last Friday.

Mr. Elumelu discussed what already-established businesses could do to advance Africa’s development through an economic philosophy he calls “Africapitalism” – which focuses on the private sector’s critical role in driving economic and social development across Africa. “Africapitalism means we cannot leave the business of development up to our governments, donor countries and philanthropic organizations alone,” he said. “We in the African private sector must wake up, recognize and embrace our role in driving the economic growth and the social development of Africa, and we must act on that responsibility in tangible ways.”

The Oxford Africa Conference is a leading annual African conference organized by members of the Oxford Africa Society and the Oxford Africa Business network of Saïd Business School, Oxford University.  The President of the Republic of Ghana delivered the opening keynote of this year’s conference in the morning.‎

Earlier in the week, Tony Elumelu also championed the cause of access to power at the Sustainable Energy For All (SE4ALL) Global Advisory Board ‎meeting in New York. The board is co-chaired by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the World Bank President, Jim Yong Kim.  “Good governance is good for Africa,” Tony Elumelu said. “Our continent is open for business. There are lots of opportunities and the return on investment is extremely high.”

Africa’s power deficit is huge and may not be cleared in the next couple of years, Elumelu said. “The power sector is therefore a goldmine for investors.”

Tony Elumelu also represented Africa’s private sector in France, on May 20, during a  global business dialogue on influencing the agenda for the 2015 Conference of the Parties (COP 21), the leading annual negotiating summit on climate issues. Mr Elumelu was invited along with an exclusive group of 40 global business leaders, including Jack Ma, the Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group, Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, and Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla.

Her Love Is Wicked: Teenager Stabs Her Boyfriend To Death

Featured Image

 

In Umuawam Ubomiri, Imo State, Nigeria; a student of Akwakuma Girls Secondary School, Owerri reportedly stabbed her boyfriend to death over allegations of infidelity and an argument over a cellphone.

 

The boyfriend, from a neighboring village as we learnt, discovered how his SS2 lover of over three years was seeing another man upon which he accosted her for questioning. Not satisfied, he demanded a return of a cell phone he had gifted her while the affair was still rosy, seeing as she had broken their agreement to stay faithful to each other. This demand met a brick wall as the girl refused to return the phone. Instead, she went into a room, picked a knife and stamped him twice in the belly. The boy immediately passed on.

 

The Police are carrying out investigations as we speak, in a bid to unravel the mysteries surrounding the death, even as youths from the deceased’s village have since taken to vandalizing properties and creating a scene in the girl’s village.

How Boko Haram burnt my family alive-Survivor

Featured Image

A Boko Haram survivor currently residing at Mararaba Gurku near Abuja, James Yaduma,tells Leadership how he lost almost all his family members in one fell swoop to the rampaging Boko Haram insurgents who struck his Zha community of Hong Local Government in Adamawa State about 7 months ago.
Yaduma, who was a farmer before he was sent packing from his village, has since started a new vocation in his new found abode to keep body and soul together by scooping sand in a nearby stream and disposing it to builders of houses as the place is a beehive of construction.

In his narration of what he suffered, Yaduma said life for him will never be the same since the gory and unfortunate incidence occurred, having witnessed how his aged father, mother and other relatives were burnt alive by Boko Haram insurgents.


“They struck our village in the wee hours of that fateful Friday and started shooting indiscriminately leading to the death of many residents.
“My aged parents, who could not run for dear lives, were trapped in our family house where the insurgents met them, set a bonfire and threw them inside alive,” he narrated.

Yaduma noted that among his family members who were at home when the insurgents struck, only he was lucky to escape by a hair’s breadth, having tucked himself in an obscure part of the house.

“When I started hearing gun shots, I instantly knew that Boko Haram had struck our village having taken over Mubi and other parts of the state. Since they took over Mubi, we could not sleep anymore as we knew very soon our village will come under attack,” he said.

He added that since he managed to escape the onslaught, he trekked for three weeks inside the surrounding bushes without knowing his bearing until he met some cattle rearers who accommodated him for few a days before showing him the way.

“After I escaped, I set out to Abuja since I know I have relatives here. I trekked most of the distance from Hong to Abuja but at intervals some spirited motorists do offer some help after hearing my ordeal,” he said.

He noted that the sand he sells fetches him between N5,000 – N7,000 weekly, just as he appealed to the President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari to do his best to secure Nigeria without prejudices as he said there is nothing like peace, noting that he is in his present state due to absence of peace.

“I am appealing to President- elect, whom I believe is an upright man to do all within his power to restore peace in Nigeria as many people have been made to suffer unnecessarily, having lost their lives and properties to the insurgency.
“Some of us want to return back to our villages but we cannot do so; all our houses, businesses and farms have been destroyed,” he said.

Lumie Clear Acne Treatment Light: farewell bad skin and topical treatments

Featured Image

Firstly, to describe the skin Lumie Clear was used on: the forehead was fairly clear and the problematic areas were generally the cheeks and along the jaw.

I started using Lumie Clear and saw a difference within a few days. I didn’t rush to jump to conclusions and wanted to use the product for a good few weeks before arriving at a final decision – and it works!

Generally, sunbathing helps out with the acne and a sunkissed look sorts the appearance of spots, but let’s be realistic, we aren’t getting that strong a sun anytime soon here in Britain. So, this really did seem like the next best thing.

In the past I have also used topical treatments from all sorts of drug stores and brands, to no joy. Have Lumie Clear work with the efficiency it did, came as a blessing!

Using it daily, for 15 minutes in the affected area (as advised), progress was slow, but sure. First, the redness of spots subsided, and the very sore spots disappeared over the first few weeks, and gradually Lumie Clear addressed the rest of the skin issues, like leftover scars from older spots. Whilst, the process is time-consuming, it can be done while watching TV or other everyday activities, so all in all, it is not at all a mission, which you have to reschedule your day around!

Our skin tends to be the first point of contact and generally defines our self-confidence and self-esteem – I must say this product helped me boost both as it made a significant impact on my skin, for the better. I don’t have to worry about make up (saving me 30 minutes of extra sleep in the morning) and my confidence with my skin has been better than ever. I would definitely recommend this product and make sure it is used as advised, without fail.

Residents accuse woman of trying to abduct 7-yr old girl(Photo)

Featured Image
A woman accused of being a kidnapper has been arrested by residents of Qadri Close in the Ojuelegba area of Lagos.
The suspect was allegedly nabbed with a seven-year-old girl, identified only as Khadijat.
The suspected abductor, Mrs. Grace Uduak, said to be in her 30s, had reportedly lured the girl with puff puff around 10am and was about to leave the neighbourhood when she was rounded up.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the suspect called Khadijat, who was in her parents’ house, and gave her the puff puff. She was said to have told the little girl to follow her.
A resident, Joseph Adebiyi, said Uduak initially whispered into Khadijat’s ears after which she gave her the snack.He said when residents of the area confronted the suspect, she told them she was pressed and wanted the girl to lead her to a toilet in the area.
He said, 


“I was with a friend when I saw Mariam ─ Khadijat’s neighbour ─ running after the woman. The woman had already walked four houses from the building where she abducted the girl before Mariam met up with her and challenged her. I moved closer to them to know what happened. She said the girl wanted to take her to a toilet.The girl was brought to Lagos by her aunty three days before the incident. The aunty was not around at that time. That house is usually deserted. She actually went into the house to pick her.”
Adebiyi said traders in the area initially wanted the woman to be freed, but he and other residents insisted that she be handed over to the police.We called the Area C Police Command and some policemen came to arrest her,” he added.
Another resident, Bolaji Adesola, said no sooner had Khadijat come downstairs to collect the gift than residents were alerted.
He said, 
“The girl actually came down to collect the puff puff and was following the suspect when Mariam raised the alarm. We informed the police.”
The Lagos State Police Spokesperson, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, said Uduak was not a kidnapper, adding that she had only sought the girl’s assistance.
“The woman works with Akwa Ibom Transport Cooperation and she was sent to deliver a parcel, but was pressed and needed direction to the convenience. She engaged the girl. But the people around interpreted it that she was trying to kidnap the girl,” he said.

Prediction: Rich to become ‘God-like cyborgs’ within 200 years
