INSURGENCY: Religion is the cause - Emeka Anyaoku


The former Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, has said the contest for political powers is the main cause of the crises currently rocking the country. He also blamed the insurgency in the Northeast on religion.

The ex-Commonwealth scribe spoke at the opening ceremony of a national conference on human security held in Abuja Tuesday. Anyaoku, however, called for the establishment of an inclusive government since the country has already been torn apart by internal conflict.

The conference was organized by the National Orientation Agency and the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation. He said in a situation where such inclusive governance is absent, the task of reconciliation and healing of memories among citizens becomes difficult and even unrealizable.

Anyaoku said with the emergence of the Boko Haram sect in Nigeria, religion has become a contributory factor to the spread of insurgency and conflict. He urged Nigerians to continue to affirm the need for all religions to treat one another with mutual respect and love.

The Director General of the National Orientation Agency, Mike Omeri, in his welcome address, said the prevailing insecurity in various parts of the country necessitated the conference.

Queen Ahneva Adeniyi- Adegeye speaks about African Men and Polygamy




She is pretty and very confident of herself, she tells you that African men are naturally polygamous in nature. Wife of juju maestro, King Sunny Ade and fashion icon, Queen Ahneva Adeniyi- Adegeye has revealed that African men are naturally born to love more than one woman.

 Ahneva Hilson, who got married to King Sunny Ade in 1984, argued that no African man has one wife, arguing that most men have a wife, a mistress and a concubine.

Los Angeles born Queen Ahneva in an interview with a leading magazine, said that African men love to spread love across and to have more than one woman they love.

“Once you see any man, you see polygamy. No African man has one wife. I don’t care if he’s an indigenous African American or African Caribbean, it’s in their nature to spread love across and to have more than one woman they love. Polygamy only puts a stamp on it to make legal. Most men have a wife, a mistress and a concubine. So, in a way, polygamy is every where in Africa and all over the world.”

Is it truly a Man’s world as James Brown said?

SIERRA LEONE ON RED ALERT FOR WOMAN WITH EBOLA


Radio stations around Freetown, Sierra Leone have launched a campaign to help hunt down a woman with Ebola who was forcibly removed from hospital by her relatives. Authorities are appealing for help to find the 32-year-old who is being described as a "risk to all". She is the first Freetown resident to have tested positive for the virus. Since February, 660 people have died of Ebola in three West African states - the world deadliest outbreak to date.

LIBERIAN MAN WITH EBOLA DIES IN LAGOS

Patrick Sawyer, a WASH consultant at the Ministry of Finance, who had been quarantined since falling ill after arriving in Lagos for a conference last Sunday, has been reported dead.

Various reports claimed a Liberian government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the news of Sawyer’s death was relayed to Liberia by the Nigerian embassy, on Friday morning.

Business Day reports that Yewande Adeshina, a Special Adviser to the Governor of Lagos on Thursday, told a news conference that Sawyer, 40 was being tested for the deadly Ebola virus in Lagos

Ebola has killed 632 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since an outbreak began in February, straining a string of weak health systems despite international help.

The virus — which starts off with flu-like symptoms and often ends with horrific hemorrhaging — has infected about 1,048 people and killed an estimated 632 since this winter, according to the numbers on July 17 from the World Health Organization.

Citizens have been urged to call the Lagos State Health officials on 08023169485, 08033086660, 08033065303, 08055281442 and 08055329229 if and when they discover anything unusual.
