Health / ECOWAS Staff Dies From Ebola Virus In Nigeria by breezy900: 11:02am On Aug 13, 2014
Nigeria has recorded its third
number of deaths from the
Ebola virus after an ECOWAS
official was reported to have
died from the virus in the
country.

The West African regional bloc
made the announcement on
Tuesday, 12 August, 2014, in an
official statement.
“The ECOWAS (Economic
Community of West African
States) Commission announces
with deep regret the passing of a
staff member of its Lagos Liaison
Office, Mr Jatto Asihu Abdulqudir,
aged 36,” it said in a statement.
“Mr Abdulqudir, a protocol
assistant, was among those who
assisted the Liberian delegate to
a regional meeting Mr Patrick
Sawyer, who died from the Ebola
Virus Disease at a Lagos hospital
on 25th July 2014.”
It was gathered that the late
ECOWAS official had been
quarantined since Sawyer was
confirmed as having Ebola, which
haskilled more than 1,000
people since the start of the year
, most of them in Guinea, Sierra
Leone and Liberia.
“The Commission wishes to use
this opportunity to express its
gratitude to Nigerian
government authorities and
others who contributed to
managing the late official while
under quarantine,” it added.
“The Management of the
Commission wishes to
commiserate with Mr
Abdulqudir’s family and
colleagues and prays for the
repose of his soul.”
It would be recalled that Nigeria’s
President Goodluck Jonathan on
Monday branded Sawyer a
“crazyman”
for bringing Ebola into Nigeria,
despite his sister having died
from it and that he reportedly
displayed symptoms before
getting on a flight to Lagos.
Also, a nurse who treated the late
Sawyer died of Ebola
in Lagos, while tests last
weekend confirmed that another
nurse had also contracted the
virus.
As of August 9, the World Health
Organization (WHO) said there
were 13 probable or suspected
cases of Ebola in Nigeria,
including two deaths.
The Nigerian Ministry of Health
had stated last week that there
were 10 confirmed cases of
Ebola virus in Nigeria, with more
than a hundred people being
monitored for signs of the
disease.
According to reports, the late
Sawyer was in Nigeria to have
attend an ECOWAS meeting and
Abdulqudir escorted him to
hospital in the Ikoyi
neighbourhood from Lagos
airport, where he arrived on a
flight from Monrovia via the
Togolese capital, Lome.
It is understood he then
returned to the ECOWAS offices
on nearby Lagos Island.
Investigation revealed that the
offices have been closed and
disinfected as a precaution while
staff have been informed of
preventative measures to take,
including seeking prompt
medical advice in the event of
illness.
ECOWAS had on Monday, 11
August, 2014, stated that the
Ebola virus outbreak threatened
West Africa’s social and economic
progress and sought the support
of all member states and
partners to tackle the spread of
Ebola.

Politics / Dora Akunyili For Burial August by breezy900: 7:14am On Aug 04, 2014
The burial of Prof. Dora Akunyili,
former Minister of Information,
has been fixed for August 28, the
husband of the deceased, Dr
Chike Akunyili, confirmed.
Akunyili made the announcement
on Saturday during a news
conference at the family’s
country home in Nneogidi village,
Agulu in Anaocha local council
area of Anambra.
According to him, there will be a
wake keep at their Enugu
residence on Aug. 22, while a
night of tributes will be held at
Sheraton Hotels, Abuja, on Aug.
25.
He said, “her body will leave the
National Hospital, Abuja, to the
family house at Rudolf Close,
Maitama, Abuja, on August 26.
“There will be a Church mass at
Pro-Cathedral Catholic Church,
Abuja, by 10 a.m. on August 26,
after which the body leaves
Abuja for
Enugu by 2.30 p.m.
“On August 27, her body arrives
Holy Ghost Cathedral, Enugu, for
Requiem High Mass by 9 a.m. and
arrives Awka by 1 p.m. for
Anambra State Government’s
activities.’’
Akunyili added that on August
28, Dora’s body would leave
Agulu to Nanka and to Madonna
Catholic Church, Agulu, for
requiem mass by 10.30 a.m.,
while interment would hold at
the family’s Agulu country home
by 1.30 p.m.
He thanked Nigerians and
President Goodluck Jonathan for
the concern, love, emotion and
moral support to the family.
He described his late wife as “an
elephant who loved her country
even during her travails.
“Her love for Nigeria was
phenomenal and beyond words;
even in her last days when she
was very ill, she insisted that she
would serve the country with her
last breath.
“She wanted a home called
Nigeria where citizens could live
and enjoy.’’
He, however, disclosed that the
former Director-General of
National Agency for Food Drug
Administration and Control
(NAFDAC) did not die of cervical
cancer as speculated in national
newspapers, but died of a rare
type of cancer called
Endometrian Carcinoma.
He said “such cancer spreads fast
without you knowing.
“We were told that people with
such condition will only live for
seven months, but with prayers,
she survived it for two years and
two months until she became ill
again.
“Although she is dead, I know
her spirit hovers around because
since her death, everything had
been easy and working for me
mysteriously.’’ (NAN)

TV/Movies / "Though I’m Over 50, Marriage Is Still On My Mind" - Ngozi Nwosu by breezy900: 7:03am On Aug 04, 2014
Nigerian Actress Ngozi Nwosu
has given a one on one
interview to reporters and
faced up and answered
questions about her intimate
life.

The light skinned actress was
talking to the Nation and also
revealed that if the opportunity
comes up to get married, she
will.
Excerpts: You still look really
radiant; so, how do you handle
male advances?
How will you handle it? You have
to be cheerful. It’s only a dead
meat that doesn’t have admirers.
So long as you are in the public
eye, men will admire you. You are
bound to be admired by the
good, the bad and the ugly. It’s
for you to say, ‘Thank you! It’s all
good! It’s well.’
Who is your ideal man?
My ideal man, frankly, is a man
that has the fear of God, which is
the beginning of wisdom. If a
man doesn’t have the fear of
God, forget it! Every other thing
you are doing is rubbish. And
between you and me, how many
men have the fear of God?
What about the physical
attributes? I believe in the school
of thought that says if you want
to eat frog, eat the one that has
eggs. I love men who are
handsome and brainy. If you are
ugly and you’ve got something
upstairs, you are welcome. But I
don’t want a fine man without
brains.
Is that the reason you are still
single?
No, there is no complete being in
life. It’s just about knowing what
you can put up with and what
you cannot. Would you say, ‘Yes, I
do’, if you find the right person
now? Yes, of course! Why won’t I
say, ‘Yes, I do’?
You are in your 50s; so, what are
your wishes?
My desire is that the Lord should
keep me and the usefulness that
He has given me should not
depart from me; that God should
grant me the wisdom to know
Him better and that He should
always guide my footsteps.

Politics / You Can Win Elections By Luck, But You Cannot Rule By Luck - Kwankwaso by breezy900: 6:44am On Aug 04, 2014
Kano State Governor, Rabiu
Musa Kwankwaso has said
Nigeria needs strong
leadership to overcome its
security challenges and not
someone who relies on luck
to rule.
“What the President must
realise is that nobody can
run a country by luck. You
can win election by luck, but
you cannot be lucky all the
time. So Goodluck as his
name implies should look
beyond luck in handling the
affairs of this country. What
Nigeria requires is a strong
leadership that will stop all
this nonsense or in the
alternative, negotiate from
the point of strength with
the insurgents,” Kwankwaso
said.
Kwankwaso said this
yesterday, while speaking
with reporters at his office.
He advised the presidency to
reduce the level of hatred
and bitterness among
Nigerians, if the government
was actually interested in
resolving the problem of
insecurity.
According to him, the real
cause of insecurity in the
country is bad leadership
being experienced in the
Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) -led government,
noting that the inability of
President Jonathan to tackle
the issue of insurgency in
the North and insecurity in
other parts of the country
has exposed Jonathan’s
incompetence to preside
over the affairs of Nigeria.
“Now, they are just using
propaganda. Look at the
issue of the abduction of
Chibok girls. The schoolgirls
have been in captivity and
they kept arguing —where
are the names, who are they,
where are the photographs;
they didn’t believe that over
200 children were abducted.
Haba! Even if it is 20 tortoise
or goats! Won’t you look for
them? One of the reasons I
love this country is that we
have people of integrity in all
the regions, in all the states
like my former colleague,
former Minister of Education,
Dr. Oby Ezekwesili.
“This is somebody who
worked at the World Bank,
but now she has devoted
her time to the cause of
these girls. She is not from
this part of the country, but
she felt she had to take the
bull by the horns and that is
what we are seeing in
developed countries — fight
injustice, save people, help
them, if you have the
opportunity to do so. They
sent some hawks to go and
stop the protesters. The
other day, I went to Abuja, I
saw an advertisement, while
Ezekwesili was saying
‘BringBackOurGirls’, some
people were saying ‘vote for
us, we want to stay and
maintain the status quo;
look at my photograph, I am
smiling.’ And they don’t
know time is of essence.
“At the moment, the country
is in a critical situation, and if
this madness is not stopped
and if it is allowed to
degenerate, and becomes
the order of the day,
whereby innocent people
are being killed every day,
then something is wrong
with the leadership.
“What Nigeria requires now
is a strong leadership that
can effectively tackle the
insurgency in the North-East,
and other topical security
challenges,” he said.
Kwankwaso then suggested
that one major way to
restore normalcy in the
northern part of the country
was to draw out a Marshal
Plan for the region, and
urged Jonathan to stamp his
feet as the Commander –In-
Chief of the Armed Forces, to
tackle this security issue.
The governor challenged the
President to think seriously
about the statement made
by General T.Y Danjuma, (rtd),
who suggested that
President Jonathan lead
Nigerians to Sambisa Forest
to rescue the abducted
Chibok girls.

Travel / EBOLA OUTBREAK: Ghana Bans Flights From Nigeria And Other West African Countries by breezy900: 11:21am On Aug 02, 2014
Following the death of a
Liberian victim of the
deadly Ebola virus in the
country, Ghana has banned
flights from Nigeria and
other West African
countries, according
to CajnewsAfrica
The Managing Director,
Ghana Airport Company,
Charles Asare, said it was
part of elaborate emergency
measures the authorities
were implementing to
prevent the virus from
spreading into the West
African country.


Also, restrictions have been
imposed on the movement
of Liberian refugees who are
still at the Buduburam
Refugee Camp in the
country.
Ever since its outbreak, the
Ebola virus has claimed the
lives of over 600 victims in
the West African sub-region.
Ghana also bans flight from
Guinea, Liberia and Sierra
Leone.
Ghana’s Health Ministry also
announced that efforts were
underway to establish Ebola
treatment centres across the
country.
The country’s Health Minister,
Kwaku Agyeman-Mensah,
advised Ghanaians to be
patient because government
was doing its best to protect
the citizens.
“It is worth bearing in mind
that preparedness is not an
event but a process,” he
said.
Though a suspected fever
case which was reported at
a clinic in Ghana was
negative, Ghanaians have
expressed fear about the
possible spread of the
disease in the country due to
closeness to the four
countries where deaths have
been recorded.
Governments in the sub-
region are putting in place
stringent measures to
prevent the further spread
of the disease.
According to the health
minister, the disease
surveillance system in Ghana
has been placed on “high
alert through intensification
of viral haemorrhagic fever
surveillance, the field officers
are on the alert to pick,
package and transport
specimens to the lab for
confirmation.”
The respective health
officers at Ghana’s ports
have been given orientation
in the detection of cases at
points of entry.
“We have activated a system
for screening all passengers
especially from countries
that have recorded cases,”
Agyeman-Mensah added.
The health minister gave the
assurance that his outfit was
monitoring the progression
of the Ebola disease in West
African nations.
But the Federal Government
had said that there was no
outbreak.
The General Manager, Public
Affairs, Nigerian Civil Aviation
Authority, Mr. Fan Ndubouke,
said that the agency was not
aware of such a
development.
He said, “We are not aware
of any such thing, we have
confirmed from Arik Air and
Aero Contractors which are
the two airlines that fly to
Ghana from Nigeria, and Arik
has confirmed to us that
they haven’t received such
notice.
“We are still trying to get
Aero to confirm, but I can tell
you that from NCAA’s angle,
there is nothing like that.”
The Spokesman, Aero
Contractors, Mr. Simon
Tunba, told our
correspondent that Aero had
not heard anything like that.
“We have not heard
anything concerning such,
and have not seen any letter
to that effect.”
Efforts to reach Arik for
comments could not yield as
at press time.
Sports / 109,000 Sell-out Crowd To Watch Manchester United Vs Real Madrid by breezy900: 7:14am On Aug 02, 2014
When two of the greatest football clubs in the world meet, a mammoth crowd is often
expected to pay attention.

Manchester United and Real Madrid sold out
all 109,000 tickets for their pre-season
friendly in Michigan on Saturday.

Expectedly so, the crowd will be the biggest
ever gathered to watch a football match in
the US. The record was previously held by a
friendly between Barcelona v LA Galaxy at the
Rose Bowl in Pasadena in 2009, which got
93,137 in attendance.
An excited Wayne Rooney described the
support in the US as great and the ticket
sales, incredible.

“It’s fantastic. The fanbase over here is great
and it’s two massive clubs, two of the biggest
clubs in the world, so to sell that many tickets for a pre-season match is incredible.

A club with rich history, United has played before a bigger crowd, with 120,000 people
present to watch a European Cup semi-final which held in Bernabeu in April 1957 . This
will be the largest attendance they have played for since then.
One of the players that might have caught the eyes of the fans in the US, Cristiano Ronaldo
is sadly not playing the game.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said of his forward: “Ronaldo has been working
individually, separate from the team, and he is continuing to work.
“We will not put him out tomorrow, as he has not trained with the full squad.

Politics / Family, Residents Accuse Police Of Torturing Youth To Death by breezy900: 7:05pm On Jul 26, 2014
The family of a 28-year-old
Olayode Adeoye, who died after
policemen from the Elere
Division, Orile Agege, Lagos
raided Ajayi Igbe Street and
detained him with two others
have accused the police of
torturing him to death.

Saturday PUNCH learnt that
Adeoye and three friends were
having a drink at a bar on Ajayi
Igbe Street around 11am on
Thursday when the police team
in a commercial bus came to
arrest them.

“But we all came out to ask the
policemen who numbered about
six what the men had done
wrong, they gave no answer,” a
resident of the street told our
correspondent
Our correspondent visited the
street on Friday, where residents
who gathered in groups
discussing the incident in anger
said they had earlier marched in
protest to the Elere Police
Division, but were dispersed
with
gunshots.

An elder brother of the
deceased,
Mr. Tajuden Oyelola, said he had
still not been able to digest why
the police would beat Adeoye to
death.

“Those who were there when
they were arrested and those
who saw him when he was
taken to the hospital said he was
tortured. I am still in shock. How
could any human being do that
to another human being?”

A resident, Kafilat Oyenusi said
the men were arrested in her
sister’s bar.

Oyenusi said, “These men were
having a drink like any other
person. We all know them as
easy going men on the street.

When the police took the men
away, they came back about one
hour later for my sister. We
asked
why they came to take my sister
away but one of the policemen
threatened to shoot us.

“We followed them to the station
and that was where we learnt
that the men had actually
admitted to being ‘Yahoo
boys’ (a
Nigerian term for Internet
fraudsters). The boys said the
policemen asked them to bail
themselves with N500, 000 but
they said they could only pay
N40, 000. That was when the
policemen began to beat them.

We later left the place hoping
that we would come back in the
evening.
“But we got a report around
4pm that Olayode had slumped
in the cell and was taken to the
hospital. By 1am this morning
(Friday), he was dead.”

The landlord of the deceased
said even though he was not
aware that the men were
Internet fraudsters, he was
aware they admitted that much
to the police and saw no reason
why they should have been
tortured.

“The three boys were easy going
men. The police actually came to
search their apartment and took
away their laptops,” he said.

Another resident told our
correspondent that the three
men were his friends and that
another friend of theirs who
went to the police station was
also detained.

“When he was detained, he told
us that they were beaten and
Olayode was actually strung up
before he collapsed and they
asked him to take Olayode to the
All Souls Infirmary, where he
died.”

At the hospital which was few
metres from the police station, a
doctor said they had nothing to
say as it was a police matter.

The divisional police officer, Mr.
Philip Eze, said the matter was
being transferred to the State
Criminal Investigation
Department and he could not
comment since he was not the
police spokesperson.

But a police officer, who was
aware of the case at the station
said under condition of
anonymity that the matter did
not happen as the residents
alleged.

Politics / Boko Haram : We Need More Brave Men - Gen Minimah by breezy900: 1:04pm On Jul 19, 2014
Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lt-
Gen. KTJ Minimah has come out
and surprised the general
public and admitted that some
of his men openly display acts
of cowardice and indiscipline in
their ongoing war with
terrorist
group Boko Haram.


In a new communiqué issued
through the Defence
Headquarters twitter account
after its quarterly conference of
the COAS ended,

Minimah said:
“the rising acts of indiscipline
and unprofessional conduct by
troops was unbecoming and
charged Commanders at all levels
to put a stop to it as the Nigerian
Army was a professional
organization.”

Gen-Minimah also talked about
the mutiny that occurred in
Borno capital Maiduguri, and
said: “A few issues needs to be
urgently addressed that have
caught my attention in recent
weeks.

Principal among these is the
rising acts of indiscipline and
unprofessional conduct by
troops. In this regard, the recent
mutinous act in Maiduguri and
reported destruction of public
property in Lagos readily comes
to mind.

As a professional army, the
conduct of our troops must be
above board at all times”
Blaming
it on the fact that most people,
who joined the military in recent
times, do so out of the need for
employment and not passion for
military service, Minimah said,
“Desertion is part of warfare.
We must accept that since the
era of the Cartagena wars,
soldiers had deserted from battle
field. In our own case, we are
doing recruitment now and we
are also receiving presentations
from across the country, from
people who want their wards to
be enlisted in the army”.

“But we need to have a
thorough
recruitment because mind you,
there is high level of
unemployment on ground; most
people want jobs and if that job
means joining the army fine. It is
a source of employment.
However, when the reality of the
military service comes, he drops
his riffles. So desertion will
continue to be there. We had
desertion in ECOMOG; in the
Nigerian Civil war and now it will
continue to be there”.
“Also, acts of indiscipline will
continue to be there but when
they are caught, they are
investigated and when they are
found questionable they will face
the Court-Martial”. “Like I said, in
a few months time, the war will
be over. But I cannot give you a
clear calendar date because this
is war on terrorism. It cannot be
determined in terms of concrete
date”.
Gen Minimah has been the COAS
since the start of this year, but
has not achieved much success
in the fight against terrorism, He
has however been happy with
the recent capture of Balmo
forest in Borno from the hands
of Boko Haram agents.
The mutiny in Maidugiri was
caused after the soldiers lost
their friends who where
assigned to a particular
dangerous area.

Sports / Mikel Prays For Release Of Chibok Girls by breezy900: 10:02pm On Jul 15, 2014
Mikel prays for release of kidnapped Chibok girls

The Chelsea star says his thoughts are with the family of Nigeria’s abducted girls who have been held for more than three months in the Sambisa Forest

Nigeriamidfielder John Obi Mikelis praying for the release and safe return of the kidnapped girls of Chibok, Borno State, who have been held for more than 90 days by the Boko Haram sect.
More than 200 secondary school girls were taken from their dormitory as they prepared for their final exams in April in the north eastern Nigeria town.
The Chelsea star was pictured carrying a cardboard with the popular #BringBackOurGirls hash tag on his club’s official Twitter account on May 14, but spoke about the issue publicly for the first time on Monday.
“I wish I knew where those girls are, I would go there, pick them up and bring them back but it’s out of my hands,” Mikel said, while responding to a question byGoalat a soiree by Amstel Malta in Lagos.
In August 2011, Mikel’s dad was kidnapped in Jos but released after about 10 days in captivity. It is such positive ending he hopes will happen to the girls of Chibok.
“We will keep praying and keep hoping that [the girls] are all safe and they will return to their families,” said the midfielder, whose appearance in an Amstel commercial chronicled his early struggles as a young footballer.
The 27-year-old helped Nigeria reach the second round of the World Cup in Brazil before losing 2-0 to France.
He was named man of the match in their first game against Iran but came under criticism after the final match againstLes Bleuswhere he struggled to impose himself on the encounter.

Klose breaks Ronaldo record
The 36-year-old has written a new piece of football history after surpassing the Brazil legend's tally of 15 World Cup goals


Miroslav Klosehas become the top goalscorer in World Cup history after scoring in Germany'ssemi-final against Brazil on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old struck in the first half against the host nation, tapping home from point-blank range after Julio Cesar had denied him at the first attempt.

Name | Goals
Miroslav Klose |16
Ronaldo | 15
Gerd Muller |14
Just Fontaine |13
Pele |12
Sandor Kocsis | 11
Jurgen Klinsmann | 11
Helmut Rahn | 10
Gary Lineker|10
Gabriel Batistuta |10

Since his last World Cup in 2006, Ronaldo's record tally of 15 goals in the competition had remained untouched, but Klose has now surpassed that tally at last in his fourth tournament.
The Lazio striker netted five goals at the 2002 World Cup, five times four years later, four in 2010 and now twice during this summer's showpiece.
Ronaldo amassed his strikes across three tournaments, in 1998, 2002 and 2006 - and lifted the famous trophy once along the way, 12 years ago this summer.
Klose, 36, started the tournament level on goals with compatriot, Gerd Muller, who starred in the 1970 and 1974 tournaments and boasts an incredible ratio of 1.08 goals per World Cup games.
Klose, who was born in Poland, made his Germany debut as a substitute on March 24, 2011 and marked the occasion with a goal.
He struck again against Greece just four days later - despite being afforded just 33 minutes over the course of his first two international outings - and the goals just never stopped coming, particularly in major tournaments.
