Measles Outbreak: Northern Nigeria in State of Emergency

Measles Outbreak: Northern Nigeria

Abdullahi Shehu, the Executive Secretary of the Board of Management of primary health Kano has declared a public health emergency due to the outbreak of measles in Kano state, where at least 200 children under 59 months were killed by the measles epidemic in the northern Nigerian state since October last year.

Abdullahi Shehu, the Executive Secretary of the Board of Management of primary health Kano, said the deaths were recorded in the 8000 cases of the disease recorded so far.

"Measles remains the most deadly childhood disease affecting the state and it can be prevented by vaccination," the official said during the closing ceremony of the integrated campaign against measles in 2013 in Kano, the capital of the state.

According to Abdullahi, it is unfortunate that parents and caregivers of children concerned had not been present for vaccination and thus exposing them to the disease.

He noted that the government of Kano State had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the richest man Aliko Dangote Africa and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the revitalization of routine immunization and other services of primary health care in an effort to curb the outbreak.

The training of local vaccinators, technical leaders and state leaders of local communities, which is about to begin, aimed at addressing the challenges facing vaccination in the northern state, does he added.

Youth unemployment especially in Nigeria has become a threat to socio-economic peace and stability.
Nigeria has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment (23.9 percent in 2011) in Africa and with jobs scarce and the ever-mounting pressure to earn; many young Nigerians between the ages of 15-24 years (about 30% of Nigeria’s population) turn to cybercrime to earn a living.

“Nigeria is a country where students do not study, workers do not work, ministers do not administrate, and where cunning religious clerics hold the order of the day. However, it is terrific for the future of the country to finally discover a fast growing community of young Nigerians – some of Africa’s finest self-made intellectuals, strategic thinkers & career leaders of struggle who notoriously do not rely on the Nigerian government.” mentioned Dr. A.N Adewole, a respected senior lecturer of the University of Ibadan.

Why men cheat more than women

Why men cheat more than women? Do they really? But women cheat as well? A new US study suggests that men are more likely to cheat than women because they have stronger sexual impulses, not weaker self-control.
Researchers note that when men reflected on their past sexual behaviour, they reported experiencing relatively stronger impulses and acting on those impulses more than women did. – Filepic

WHILE concrete evidence is hard to come by, the general consensus is that men – especially powerful men – cheat more than women, researchers said.

And now a new study attempts to explain why: men have stronger sexual impulses than women, but not weaker self-control.

Previous research has shown that men are more likely than women to pursue romantic partners who are “off limits”, the researchers said, but the motivations behind that have been largely unexplored.

“Overall, these studies suggest that men are more likely to give in to sexual temptations because they tend to have stronger sexual impulse strength than women do,” says study author Natasha Tidwell, a doctoral psychology student at Texas A&M University.

“But when people exercise self-control in a given situation, this sex difference in behaviour is greatly reduced,” she said. “It makes sense that self-control, which has relatively recent evolutionary origins compared to sexual impulses, would work similarly – and as effectively – for both men and women.”

Tidwell and coauthor Paul Eastwick, an assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin, recruited more than 800 undergraduate students.

In one of the two experiments, participants were first asked to recall and describe an attraction to an unavailable or incompatible member of the opposite sex, and then they answered survey questions designed to measure sexual impulses.

“When men reflected on their past sexual behaviour, they reported experiencing relatively stronger impulses and acting on those impulses more than women did,” says Tidwell.

However, men and women did not differ in the extent to which they exerted self-control.

“Men have plenty of self-control – just as much as women,” added Eastwick. “However, if men fail to use self-control, their sexual impulses can be quite strong. This is often the situation when cheating occurs.”

Findings are published in the journal Personality And Social Psychology Bulletin. – AFP Relaxnews

Why good women fall for bad men

I came across this article by Charis Wong, a marriage and family therapist who explained fully why good women fall for bad men.

He’s arrogant, rude, a rebel, and may quite possibly have a borderline personality disorder… But yet women fall head-over-heels for the bad guy.
“A lot of women get caught up in this cycle and they can remain in this cycle for the rest of their lives,” said Wong.

Wong says that women who fall for “bad men” often have unresolved issues that make them attracted to these individuals.

“In a normal situation, a woman would be attracted to someone who would make a potential life mate, and father to her future children,” explained Wong.

“However, there are some cases where women may have unresolved childhood issues, and have the tendency to fall for bad boys as a way to deal with these issues,” she said.

Wong says that women from dysfunctional families, whose father had affairs with other women, or women with father issues, who did not get much attention from their father, may also fall into the cycle of dating “bad men”.
Why good women fall for bad men

A distant or emotionally detached man may be a relationship that is considered normal for the woman.

“It is an accustomed and familiar relationship, and when you’re familiar with something, it’s comfortable, and you will become unconsciously attracted to the same sort of man your mother was,” said Wong.

Wong said that low self-esteem is another reason women fall for “bad men”.

“This is when women don’t have a healthy image of themselves. They often do not think that they’re worthwhile to be with a “good guy”, so they settle for the “bad man”,” said Wong.

Wong said that many of these women put the man’s faults on themselves; blaming themselves for his bad behaviour.

“They will think that maybe he is ignoring me because I’m not good enough, so I need to be better,” explained Wong.

“Men who do what they like and rebel and who is not afraid to get into trouble, may seem attractive because they have that seemingly powerful aura. So by associating herself with that person, it makes her feel powerful by association,” she said.

“It almost becomes an obsession or love addiction,” said Wong.

“He becomes an obsession and the focus of your life. You feel like you have no other reason for living and that your role as his girlfriend defines you and that without him, you are nobody,” she adds.

“There will come a point when the “bad man” can’t deal with this, and leaves them. The woman will then move on to the next “bad man” that comes around,” she said.

She also adds that women who are attracted to “bad men” find “good guys” boring and non-attractive.

Wong says that if these women ever date a “good guy” they will end up feeling unsatisfied and bored.

“She will keep trying to sabotage the relationship to “test” him because she doesn't believe that the “good guy” wants her,” said Wong.

“She may even cheat on this “good guy” with a “bad man”, because they feel like the “good guy” will leave her anyway,” she adds.

Wong advices women who realize that they’re in this unhealthy cycle to seek help from a therapist.

“Once you’re aware that you have predisposition to go out with “bad men”. Ask yourself if you’re ready to break this cycle and visit unresolved childhood issues,” said Wong.

“You have to be ready to take that step, even though it may seem scary,” she added.

Charis Wong is a marriage and family therapist and the director of Kin & Kids, a marriage, family and child therapy centre.

Raped girl forced to strip at police station

Raped 14-year-old girl was allegedly asked to strip in front of cops at a police station in Kushinagar district of eastern Uttar Pradesh, India to convince the cops that her allegations of rape were genuine and not concocted.
Raped girl forced to strip at police station

This happened after the initial attempts of the girl's father to get the complaint registered proved futile after he failed to pay Rs 50,000 to the police-the price they allegedly demanded to register the complaint and arrest the accused.

The incident came to light on Tuesday after the family lodged a complaint with the superintendent of police (SP) Kushinagar accusing the police in-charge of demanding Rs 50,000 to register a rape complaint and humiliating the girl and her family for failing to meet his demands. 

As per the complaint, when the family failed to meet the demands of the police officer, he asked the girl to accompany him into a room where he locked the doors from inside and asked the girl to strip saying he wanted to verify if she was raped.

"He took me into a room and closed the door and asked me to remove my clothes," the girl was quoted in the complaint. The police officer also allegedly abused the girl and her parents and chased them away without filing a first information report (FIR).

Nigerian Tenant kills landlord, landlady, sets house ablaze

The Akwa Ibom State Police command has confirmed the incident and released the name of aNigerian man who kills his landlord, landlady before setting the house on fire.

The house is located at Asuquo Eyo Street in Ifa Ikot Okpon in the Uyo Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom state. Daughter of the deceased, Ms Emem Akpan, narrated the incident to reporters, saying that the tenant-landlord dispute started when her father asked Ime to move out of his house.

Akpan said that the suspect refused to park out and threatened that if her father insisted on ejecting him, he would kill them and burn down the house.

"We thought what he said was just a mere threat. None of us could believe that Ime was capable of doing what he said. Two days ago, we saw him bringing worn-out tyres into the compound. We didn't know he had a plan".

"Yesterday, before we left for church in the evening, he brought 20 litres of fuel, more than what his generator could contain. I remember a neighbor asking him what he was going to do with such amount of fuel, but he told him that he was going to run the generator overnight".

"This is what we saw this morning as we returned from church, that the fuel and worn-out tyres were weapons used by the assailant to kill my parents," she said.

DHL Nigeria marked Global Volunteer Day for Children

DHL Nigeria marked Global Volunteer Day by organizing outdoor fun day for children from the Little Saints Orphanage.  DHL Nigeria part of Deutsche Post DHL, the world’s leading postal and logistics group as part of its global drive to give back to local communities had a great day with children from Saints Orphanage.

“DPDHL is passionate about giving back to the community and Global Volunteer Day is a priority for our company. Our project locally is not only aligned to this global enthusiasm and our international goals and approach, but also fits into the national agenda, creating hope for local communities and the people of Nigeria, says Randy Buday, Country Manager, DHL Nigeria.

The day started bright with about 100 DHL employees turning up at the Isolo office premises to set up rides, games, music as well as food and drink serving points for the visiting children. At about 11am, two buses conveying 100 children from the orphanage drove into the DHL compound amidst smiles and cheers from the employees.

The children were first treated to some light aerobic activities before the fun and games began with activities such as singing, dancing, bouncing, sliding and more. The children also enjoyed a wide selection of mouth watering meals as well as cotton candy, ice cream, popcorn and other kiddies favorites. By the end of the day, it was obvious the children didn’t want to leave the little wonderland the DHL employees had created for them.

After the event, one of the children had this to say: “My name is Akinyemi Ephraim George one of the children in Little Saints Orphanage. I really want to use this great opportunity to appreciate the company (DHL) and the manager for their love, care and time spent with the children. I want to say a very big thank you sir and ma and I pray may God continue to bless the company and all the staffs of DHL.”

“At DHL we believe that people are our greatest resource and the company aims to encourage employees to actively participate in community efforts, as well as inspire the spirit of volunteerism,” says Olufunmilayo Glover, Human Resources Manager, DHL Nigeria.

Introduced in Asia Pacific in 2008, Volunteer Day has expanded into Americas, Middle East, Africa and Europe over the years, and continues to build on its success by involving more employees than ever before. In 2012, the initiative was rolled out globally with tremendous success – 62,000 volunteers in about 120 countries and territories participated in more than 1,000 community programs.

For Global Volunteer Day 2013, Deutsche Post DHL offices around the world are participating in many diverse community projects in support of various local causes. These programs deliver to the company’s three Corporate Responsibility programs – GoTeach (championing education), GoGreen (protecting the environment) and GoHelp (delivering help).

“Global Volunteer Day is a key part of our sustainability focus and an integral part of our company’s commitment to deliver its Corporate Responsibility strategy through GoGreen, GoHelp and GoTeach,” comments Randy Buday.

“If we can just make a difference in our local communities; imagine an entire globe full of corporate volunteers banding together. Global Volunteer Day is just that – an international organisation standing together to effect change in the communities that we serve.”

What ASUU President Has to Say to Nigerians About the Strike

ASUU strike latest updates

Message from ASUU President

Dear Comrades, As the struggle to save Nigerian University system is being pursued, I'll like to salute all our members for their resoluteness in ensuring that the 2009 ASUU/Government Agreement is implemented in accordance with the Roadmap defined by the 2012 MoU. We believe very strongly that the rot and decay in the University System is not only arrestable but also reversible. We believe even more strongly that, the key to turning round the University System lies in the sincere implementation of the Agreement.

What government has so far been doing is no more than a repeat performance of a one- act-play: all the deceptions, propaganda, lies, mischiefs and such other Shenanigans were tried by previous Governments,
including Military Juntas, but our resolve to save the University System and our Country remained unwaivered.

We will continue to carry the banner of this struggle to its logical conclusion. I urge all our members to maintain the spirit of camaraderie and remain firmly resolute in ensuring that our patriotic struggle succeeds. United we Bargain, Divided we Beg!

Nigerian Universities: ASUU strike over Agreements

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Nigeria has vowed to continue their strike unless the federal government honours the 2009 agreement with the union. I can't believe the ongoing strike has lasted this much. Sad State of Education in Nigeria.

In a statement signed by its University of Ibadan branch chairman, Olusegun Ajiboye, ASUU renewed its call for the scraping or a total overhaul of the regulatory institution if the nation wishes to get it right in university education management.

While calling on the National Assembly to beam its searchlight on the activities of the NUC, Mr. Ajiboye said the recent NEEDS assessment report on universities reflects how much the commission has failed in its duties as a regulator.

According to him, the report undertaken by genuine academics contradicts NUC’s accreditation exercises which gave ‘controversial’ clean bill of health to most universities through “magomago accreditation.”

The union contended that only in a society like Nigeria would Mr. Okojie still remain in office after being heavily indicted in the report, saying “in sane climes, the NUC boss ought to have resigned through the revelations made in the NEEDS assessment report.”

Mr. Okojie had, last week, absorbed his commission of any wrongdoing in the rot plaguing public universities in the country, particularly as regards undeserved accreditation, blaming members of the ASUU instead.

Mr. Ajiboye, who described the statement credited to the NUC boss as ‘careless’, accused Mr. Okojie of using his cronies who can do his biddings to embark on accreditation.

He said the success of the 2011 elections was based on the patriotic zeal and contributions of genuine and patriotic ASUU members nationwide saying that was why the election was free of hanky-panky recorded in past elections.

The ASUU statement titled ‘Where Okojie Got It Wrong,’ insisted that the NUC boss is fond of using his ‘yes sir’ boys to do hatchet jobs during accreditations, thereby compromising quality most of the time.

The union said its almost three-month-old strike is fully on, adding that the it would not allow itself to be fooled again with ‘promisory notes’ of the federal government which had never worked in the past.

“ASUU cannot be blamed for NUC ‘magomago’ accreditations. Rather than blaming the Union, Okojie should take full responsibility for all the fraudulent deeds in the NUC, including the work and eat accreditations.

“The NUC knows the kind of academics they select for their ignoble exercises. These are cronnies of the big man in the NUC. They can never say no to his biddings. Nigerians should be proud of ASUU in it’s efforts at repositioning public universities in the country. One of these major efforts is the NEEDS Assessment Document.

“This was a product of a rigorous academic exercise carried out by dependable and credible members of our Union. Unlike the numerous faulty accreditation reports which had given these universities clean bill of health, the NEEDS Assessment Report stands out as a classical document of reference detailing the rot and decay in public universities in Nigeria. All well meaning Nigerians can see the contrast between okojie’s ‘packaged accreditation reports’ and a credible job done by ASUU.

“It has become very clear from the Needs Assessment that Okojie and his cohort of accreditors have fooled this country for too long. Enough they say is enough. Time is now for the Government to beam a searchlight on the activities of the NUC.

“The Education Committees in both the Senate and House of Representatives have an arduous task to do here. Nigerians are calling for dismantling of an omnibus body that has done the country more harm than good. NUC must go.

“Professor Julius Okojie cannot absolve himself from the rot in the university system by regulating quantity instead of ensuring quality delivery,”
