THE RISE AND FALL OF NIGERIA UNIONISM There have been strict indications that the umbrella body of all Nigerian Students has lost its mission and vision. Before the name NANS came into existence, the umbrella body of Nigeria Students was known as NUNS. NUNS came into existence when the umbrella body of West Africa students WASU fought the colonial masters and insisted on the rights of African Students to be ported and promoted. NUNS adopted the same ideology of WASU and That was how students unionism started in Nigeria. During the 1960's, tertiary institutions was not much in Nigeria, but the system was well coordinated and managed, the students voice was very sound and clear which led to the Abolition of the so-called Anglo-Nigerian Defence pact. In the 1970's, the number of higher institutions in Nigeria increased in numbers. The students struggle by this time was fully appreciated and recognized in Nigeria and West Africa as a whole. The students saw themselves as agents of change, and they wanted to m ...

Germany promises to help Ghana end blackouts Germany has offered to help Ghana solve its energy issues as well as in the education sector. President John Dramani Mahama is currently on a state visit in Germany hoping to strengthen the relationship with the European powerhouse. German Chancellor Angela Merkel promised to help Ghana end the erratic power supply that has raged on for over a year after the two leaders went into a closed-door discussion. Their talk also touched on issues affecting the continent as a whole. Merkel said Germany is prepared to support the young oil-producing country in various sectors. “For Ghana, it is providing electricity and electricity supplies which is of the greatest importance and we have been talking about making contribution towards developing renewable energy,” she said at a joint press conference. “We value the partnership with Ghana and it is a friendly one.” She added: “Ghana is a good democracy and good partner in West Africa. Our tides in the field of de ...

When I hear a Christian talk about change, regarding this Upcoming Elections. I am compelled to feel pity for him or her. Any true Christian would have nothing to do with Buhari. Light and Darkness has nothing in common, and anybody campaining for Buhari, has an agenda or stands to make a gain, cos no normal Nigerian would. In the wake of this campaign and stuff, have been quiet and watched carefully, Buhari has nothing to offer But to fulfill his long longed desire to finally make this Nation an Islamic state (God Forbid!). It's all an agenda. They want to make the Whole of West Africa an Islamic state, thus to do that they have to start with Nigeria, the most populous African state. In order to do this, they have to use a disciplinarian and a military enforcer Clothed in the warm embrace of Democracy who will stop at nothing to achieve it. Thats what was done to Turkey (a case study). And this is just How it started, The Christian Community taking things for granted. Go and do your research. Christains ...

Thy food thy medicine- Shea butter Shea butter (/ˈʃiː/ or /ˈʃiː.ə/) is an off- white or ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa). Shea butter is a triglyceride (fat) derived mainly from stearic acid and oleic acid. It is widely used in cosmetics as a moisturizer, salve or lotion. Shea butter is edible and is used in food preparation in Africa Occasionally, the chocolate industry uses shea butter mixed with other oils as a substitute for cocoa butter, although the taste is noticeably different. The English word "shea" comes from s’í, the tree's name in the Bambara language of Mali. It is also known as karité in the Wolof language of Senegal. In some parts of West Africa, shea butter is referred to as Ori. History Accounts from as early as Cleopatra's Egypt speak of caravans bearing clay jars of valuable shea butter for cosmetic use. The funeral beds of early kings were carved in the wood of shea trees. Shea butter's skin care and healing properties ...

PDP, APC Reel Out Policies to Stem Reliance on Oil 16 Jan 2015 Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday proposed new sets of policy measures in response to the challenges posed by the country's over-dependence on oil as the only major source of income. While the PDP said it is implementing policies that would make the economy an all-inclusive one through the privatisation and liberalisation of critical sectors of the economy, APC said it would target investments in agriculture and related industries as well as revive the textile industry as a basis for creating jobs for the unemployed. Speaking at a debate organised by the Centre for Democracy and Development in conjunction with Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA), the PDP representative, Dr. Katchi Ononuju, said it is not true that the country was lagging behind but instead the party had been able to stabilise the economy leading to the achievement of the feat as the larges ...

PROFILE OF FIIFI FIAVI KWETTEY Fifi Kwetey who has always been a passionate lover of his homeland Ghana, decided to come back home to continue his education. In September 1984, he enrolled in Bishop Herman College and by June 1987 had obtained the GCE O level.

*** TO SHOW YOU THAT KING JAMES OWN SLAVE THIS THE YEAR THAT THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN THAT YOU BELIEVE IN! The Atlantic slave trade is customarily divided into two eras, known as the First and Second Atlantic Systems. The First Atlantic system was the trade of enslaved Africans to, primarily, South American colonies of the Portuguese and Spanish empires; it accounted for slightly more than 3% of all Atlantic slave trade. It started (on a significant scale) in about 1502[38] and lasted until 1580 when Portugal was temporarily united with Spain. While the Portuguese were directly involved in trading enslaved peoples, the Spanish empire relied on the asiento system, awarding merchants (mostly from other countries) the license to trade enslaved people to their colonies. During the first Atlantic system most of these traders were Portuguese, giving them a near-monopoly during the era. Some Dutch, English, and French traders also participated in the slave trade.[39] After the union, Portugal came under Spanish le ...

2.2 Colonialism Tropical rainforests are found mainly in the Third World countries, Australia and Hawaii being the only exceptions. All of these countries have indigenous populations who had their own system of land management and/or ownership in place for thousand of years before the intervention of colonists from rich industrialised nations. The colonial powers (Britain, France, Spain and Portugal), whilst exploiting the resources of many of these countries, attempted to destroy indigenous peoples' rights to remain on their land. Colonialism turned previously self-sufficient economies into zones of agriculture export production (Colchester and Lohmann). This process continues today and the situation is worsening. 2.3 Exploitation by Industrialised Countries Wealthy countries have been consuming so much of their own resources that they are no longer sustaining their growing populations and increasingly, they are turning to the resources of the financially poorer countries.

Trouble Brewing: West Turns Blind Eye to Boko Haram’s Bloody Massacre While the world’s been focused on ISIL’s reign of terror in the Mideast, it’s largely neglected the rise of its de-facto counterpart in West Africa, Boko Haram. Now that over 2,000 people have been killed over the past few days and a 10-year-old suicide bomber has been used, that may be changing. Boko Haram first rocketed to international notoriety last spring after they kidnapped nearly 300 female students from their traditional area of operations in northeast Nigeria. This led to widespread global backlash and the social media campaign # Bring BackOurGirls. In the meantime, internet activism has obviously proven to be no replacement for on-the-ground operations, and the Nigerian military has had severe difficulty in battling the terrorists. The expanding chaos has finally become transnational, with militants spilling over into Cameroon and refugees fleeing by the thousands into Chad. As Boko Haram begins to look more and more ...

This week's Final Call Newspaper editorial: Conspiracy theories and unnecessary Black deaths By FinalCall.com News Updated Jan 6, 2015 - 8:40:05 PM When an emergency arises in Africa or elsewhere in the Black world, our vulnerability to those who provide care for us surfaces alongside the threat to life that must be responded to. Such vulnerability should lead to questions about who is providing the care and the service, their agenda and whether we are truly being served. Such questions about methods or motives are often disregarded as “conspiracy theories” and paranoia despite a history of medical malpractice and genocide against us. But questions about motives and methods have arisen again as West Africa copes with the deadly Ebola Virus, a virus which has been a favorite subject for study and funding by the U.S. Department of Defense. The questions come not from a wild-eyed radical but from the mainstream UK-based Guardian newspaper. The Guardian reported in December that British health workers lef ...

SOMEWHERE IN THE VOLTA REGION. How can a region fully of tourists attraction sites like the Volta region have bad roads? Tourism is one of the highest foreign exchange earners for the country and yet the roads that lead to most of these sites are dilabidated. Isnt this an irony? There is a full and working ministries of tourism, local government and rural develpoment, roads and high ways. District and municipal assemblies and a department of feder roads. The question is, what is the modus operandi of these ministries, agencies, departments and assemblies? These government agencies should be up and doing to put these roads into the right shape to serve as a source of revenue to governement. The roads that lead to the highest height in Ghana ( Mt. Afadjato) and the longest waterfall in West Africa ( Wili Falls) should be upgraded. Moreover, the Wili Falls environment should also be upgraded to attract more tourists. God bless our home land Ghana.

Martin Robison Delany (1812–1885) is known as the father of “American Black Nationalism.” He was also a journalist (Worked with Frederick Douglass on the North Star), abolitionist, physician, and writer. After being one of the first blacks admitted to Harvard Medical School, he became the first African-American field officer in the United States Army during the American Civil War. In 1859 Delany visited Liberia (West Africa), to negotiate the possibility of a new black nation in the area. History has it that an agreement was signed with eight chiefs in the Abeokuta region that would permit black American settlers to live on unused land. The same quest Marcus Garvey would later pursue. Unfortunately, the treaty was eventually disregarded due to warfare in the region. It was obviously opposed by many white missionaries and the American Civil War was also a major set back. One of his well-known works is “The Condition, Elevation, Emigration, and Destiny of the Colored People of the United States” R ...

Do namysłu. Artykuł z "The American Interest", przedstawiający hierarchię mocarstw: 2015 WATCH The Seven Great Powers WALTER RUSSELL MEAD To kick off 2015, we present our take on who the real “G-7″ countries are: the world’s seven great powers, ranked by their ability to shape both their immediate environments and the broader world. Last year was full of nasty surprises as ISIS exploded, an Ebola epidemic rampaged across West Africa and Russia invaded Ukraine. 2015 could be more of the same, but as we try to figure out what the new year will bring, it’s worth taking a step back from the headlines to ask who the real world powers are. That’s complicated; ranking countries by power is hard to do. Measured by the destructive capabilities of its nuclear weapons, for example, Russia is as much of a superpower as was the old Soviet Union. But it isn’t easy to turn the ability to destroy all life on earth into the power to get other countries to recognize your annexation of Crimea. What follows . ...

FROM KWARA LEFRO ARCHIVE KWARA PDP AND THEIR POLITICAL NIGHTMARES - FROM KWARA LEFRO ARCHIVE Opined by Abdulrahman Abdullahi Kayode Posted 3rd January, 2014, Edited 3rd January, 2015 Today makes it exactly a year when Abdulrahman Abdullahi Kayode came up with an opinion on the political happenings in the state and many of us here felt like the heaven would fall. The heaven has actually fallen and scattered the house built with spit by the PDP in Kwara state. It looks like things have actually fallen apart in the one time biggest party in the region of West Africa and the center cannot actually hold anymore. Let us first have a review of the well-articulated write up before a further assessment of the highly revealing piece that best summarises all happenings in the PDP now and the ones that are yet to come: "Verily, all men are great in their dreams but the reality (wakefulness) narrows the competition.

The Journalists Who Died Doing Their Jobs in 2014 BY NEWSWEEK STAFF 1/1/15 AT 10:09 AM 12_22_PJs_opener-2 NEWSWEEK ILLUSTRATION Filed Under: World, James Foley, Journalism The year 2014 was a one of contradictions, with stories only brought to life because of those journalists willing to go where the stories were. The Sochi Olympics were a time of inclusion and world harmony as nations gathered in Russia to put differences aside and celebrate the love of sport, but weeks later Ukraine and Russia were at each other's doorsteps, playing a game of political chess that would topple one country’s president, redraw borders, and forever alter Russia’s world image. The U.S. legalized *** marriage in many states, while countries like Uganda and India took leaps backward, arresting *** people in the name of civility. Health care reform took hold in America, opening access to medical care, but on the other side of the planet Polio was making a comeback in Pakistan and the Ebola Virus was ravaging West Africa.

How Many Ebola Patients Have Been Treated Outside of Africa? UPDATED Dec. 29, 2014 At least 24 cases have been treated in Europe and the United States.

A Hawaii doctor has returned from his medical mission to Sierra Leone to help with the ebola outbreak. Dr. Richard Brostrom came home right before Christmas, and says the first thing he did after spending time with his family, was catch up on his sleep. He says his work days in the capital city of Freetown were long — from about 8 a.m. – 11 p.m. for 29 days straight. Brostrom says his experience was “pretty amazing, desperate, that country is really suffering.” In addition to heading the State Health Department’s Tuberculosis Branch, Brostrom is also a Medical Officer for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “I think the thing is was surprised with the most was that when a problem arose while we were there, the response was rapid, effective, and intense. So we are really giving it our best effort to put out this fire in West Africa,” Brostrom said. Sierra Leone has had the most ebola cases among the three West African countries with widespread transmission. “In general we are i ...

UK nurse brought brought down from Glasgow to London by Plane after coming back from Sierra Leone with Ebola. Delightful nothing like spreading it about. Anybody who wants to go to West Africa to help with their plight I admire but on their return they should have to go into quarantine as a precaution. Any West African nationals should not be allowed to travel here. Laughable I know but tighter restrictions were in place when mad cow disease was about. No doubt a do-gooder will brand this as selfish attitude and perhaps their right. Rant over. .
There is a large Ebola outbreak going on at present in West Africa • the risk of Ebola is low for most travellers • however, malaria is a much more common infection in West Africa and can have similar early symptoms. It is treatable if diagnosed quickly, so contact NHS 111 for advice if you feel unwell. • If you are staying in the UK and develop symptoms such as: - fever - headache - body aches - diarrhoea - vomiting within 21 days of arriving in the U.K. from Sierra Leone, Guinea or Liberia, you should contact NHS 111 and tell them where you have travelled. DO NOT TURN UP AT ANY MEDICAL FACILITY, PLEASE REMAIN AT HOME!!
Day Thirty-One East Timor, Southeast Asia East Timor has one of the highest smoking rates in the world, particularly among men. The Journal of the American Medical Association reports, “33 percent of East Timor’s population smoke every day. The figure for men stands at 61 percent – the highest in the world.” Dr. Jorge Luna, World Health Organization representative, says, “Young people are smoking more and more each year, especially young boys. It is a very serious problem.” According to BBC News, “Almost half the population is under 15 and increasingly the demand, especially among the young, is for Western-type cigarettes, often sold singly from packets displayed invitingly along the roadside.” Ask the Holy Spirit to release men and young boys from tobacco addiction. Pray for the health and well-being of the East Timorese population. Pray for Christian Believers to turn young people away from smoking and on to a fulfilling relationship with Jesus Christ (The Bible, Psalm 16:11 ESV). Source ...

Sankofa Bird The concept of “Sankofa” is derived from King Adinkera of the Akan people of West Africa. “Sankofa” is expressed in the Akan language as Sankofa bird “se wo were fi na wosan kofa a yenki.” Literally translated, this means “it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot”. “Sankofa” teaches us that we must go back to our roots in order to move forward. That is, we should reach back and gather the BEST of what our past has to teach us, so that we can achieve our full potential as we move forward. Whatever we have lost, forgotten, forgone, or been stripped of can be reclaimed, revived, preserved, and perpetuated. Visually and symbolically, “Sankofa” is expressed as a mythic bird that flies forward while looking backward with an egg (symbolizing the future) in its mouth. “In order to understand our present and ensure our future, we must know our past.” So do you see why it is important to REFLECT BACK in order to truly MOVE FORWARD?

Sarah Forbes Bonetta, a princess of the Egbado clan of the Yoruba people, is best known as the goddaughter of Queen Victoria of Great Britain. Bonetta was born in 1843 in what is now southwest Nigeria. Her parents' names are unknown as are the names of her siblings who were all killed in the 1847 slave raid that made Bonetta a captive. Bonetta’s village of Okeadan was attacked by King Gezo of Dahomey, the most notorious slave trading monarch in West Africa in the early 19th century. Intent on capturing slaves and killing those not taken, Gezo’s men seized the four year old girl. For reasons that are unclear, the girl was not killed and remained at Gezo’s Court until 1849 when British Commander Frederick Forbes’s landed the HMS Bonetta in Dahomey to persuade Gezo to give up slave raiding and trading. Forbes noticed the young girl and bargained for her life. He persuaded King Gezo to “give” her to Queen Victoria, saying “She would be a present from the King of the Blacks to the Queen of th ...

The Garden was erected after the rebellion of Lilith who ran away and Elohim turned her into a demoness (See Yeshayahu 34:11).

"Garri-making is not without Health Hazard" Ezekiel Ette The introduction of Cassava from the Carribean by returned slaves io West Africa helped in boosting the food supply. Today, Cassava has become the staple food crop of the West African Region according to the World Health Organization. Except for rice and corn, no other food item is more popular especially among urban dwellers. The popularity of cassava is due to the fact that the food can be prepared cheaply. Garri can be consumed by the poor simply by mixing it with water with no condiment added. The cassava can be grown anywhere in poor soil and the plant can withstand drought. It is an ideal food crop in the Nigerian environment. Among the Annang in Akwa Ibom State, the crop was rejected by the upper class when it was first introduced and to this day cannot be used as an item of sacrifice in the indigenous ...
MORE ON BLACK EYED PEAS AND AFRICAN HISTORY. Prosperity Starts With a Pea By JESSICA B. HARRIS Published: December 29, 2010 AT year’s end, people around the world indulge in food rituals to ensure good luck in the days ahead. In Spain, grapes eaten as the clock turns midnight — one for each chime — foretell whether the year will be sweet or sour. In Austria, the New Year’s table is decorated with marzipan pigs to celebrate wealth, progress and prosperity. Germans savor carp and place a few fish scales in their wallets for luck. And for African-Americans and in the Southern United States, it’s all about black-eyed peas. Not surprisingly, this American tradition originated elsewhere, in this case in the forests and savannahs of West Africa. After being domesticated there 5,000 years ago, black-eyed peas made their way into the diets of people in virtually all parts of that continent. They then traveled to the Americas in the holds of slave ships as food for the enslaved. “Everywhere African slav ...

Asafo Flags: are essentially tribal military colours/flags from Ghana and West Africa, used from colonial times to the present and often feature the Union Jack in canton. The Asafo are traditional warrior groups in Akan culture. The word derives from sa, meaning war, and fo, meaning people. The traditional role of the asafo companies was defence of the state. As the result of contact with European colonial powers on the Gold Coast (present-day Ghana), the Fante, who inhabit the coastal region, developed an especially complex version of the concept in terms of its social and political organization based on martial principles, and with elaborate traditions of visual art, including flag banners with figurative scenes. Asafo flags are popular among the Fantse of the coastal area. The flag is a cloth of solid color that is about three feet by five feet in dimensions. The symbols on the flag are appliqued and occasionally embroidered. The flags of the Fante-people from Ghana are very special regarding their his ...

More blood is being shed in Nigeria’, says Pope Francis on December 25, 2014. Pope Francis issued a strident call in his Christmas day message to safeguard children who are victims “under our very eyes” of violence and trafficking, while also demanding an end to “brutal persecution” worldwide. Killings and hostage-takings from the Middle East to Nigeria and elsewhere must stop, he said in his annual Christmas “urbi et orbi” (to the city and the world) message. FILE PHOTO: The scene of the attack… Denouncing conflicts in Ukraine and Libya, and noting last week’s deadly attack against a school in Pakistan, the pontiff also lamented the thousands of victims of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. “Truly there are so many tears this Christmas,” he said. Delivering his second Christmas blessing, the popular Argentine pontiff, visibly moved and departing from his text, noted “the children massacred by bombardments, including where the son of God was born” and their “powerless sil ...

LONDON - The Ebola outbreak that originated in West Africa has now grown to more than 19,000 cases and nearly 7,600 deaths worldwide. In Sierra Leone, the country hit hardest, the government banned holiday celebrations. On the radio, Christmas concerts were replaced by public health announcements. But even before Sierra Leone took the drastic step of banning all public festivities over Christmas and New Year’s, it was going to be a bleak holiday for Ebola orphans. Deprived of one or often both of their parents, they are cared for by survivors of the disease as the infection rate continues to rise in their country. Sierra Leone has had more than 9,000 cases of Ebola — more than three times that of Guinea and 1,200 more than Liberia. American doctor Dan Kelly, an infectious disease expert who just returned from more than a month working in the West African country, says the Christmas b ...

Christian communities have been uprooted from the places that they have dwelt since within living memory of the time of Jesus. Along with them, others have been harried and hunted, blown up, tortured, beheaded, raped and have seen their families, their livelihoods, their futures destroyed.

RICHEST MAN IN HISTORY WAS A BLACK MAN KNOWN AS MANSA MUSA 1. MANSA MUSA I - $400 BILLION (BORN 1280) Mansa Musa I, the richest person in history, had a personal net worth of $400billion at the time of his death in 1331. He ruled West Africa's Malian Empire which covered modern day Ghana, Timbuktu and Mali. His country's production of more than half the world's supply of salt and gold contributed to Musa's vast wealth, which he used to build large mosques that still stand today. According to the writings of Arab-Egyptian scholar Al-Umari, Musa inherited his throne through a practice of appointing a deputy after the king goes on his pilgrimage to Mecca; later naming the deputy as heir. Musa was appointed deputy of the king before him, who had reportedly embarked on an expedition to explore the limits of the Atlantic ocean, and never returned. Just two generations after his death, however, Musa's world record net worth was diminished after is heirs were not able to fend off civil war and invading conquerors ...

"IF WHAT HAPPENED IN 2011 SHOULD AGAIN HAPPEN IN 2015, by the grace of God, THE DOG AND THE BABOON WILL BE SOAKED IN BLOOD". WHAT HAPPENED IN 2011? The violence began with widespread protests by supporters of the main opposition candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, a northern Muslim from the Congress for Progressive Change, following the re-election of incumbent Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian from the Niger Delta in the south, who was the candidate for the ruling People's Democratic Party. The protests degenerated into violent riots or sectarian killings in the NORTHERN states of ADAMAWA, BAUCHI, BORNO, GOMBE, JIGAWA, KADUNA, KANO, KATSINA, NIGER, SOKOTO, YOBE AND ZAMFARA.

When the British administrators lowered the Union Jack in Lagos on October 1, 1960, Nigeria was Africa’s greatest hope. Its pool of talent mass of fertile land, and its newly discovered oil wealth, promised economic transformation and the role of leading the then independent African nations and those who were still struggling for freedom, under different forms of colonialism, to eventually lead the African Continent, onto the global stage.

Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State as the Director-General of the APC Presidential Campaign Organization, which will drive the party's efforts to win the 2015 presidential election.

King Leopold the second of Belgium; The Butcher of Congo. Leopold was responsible for the deaths, and mutilations of 10 million Congolese Africans during the late 1800's. The spoils of modern-day Belgium owes much to the people of the Congo River basin. Is a testament to the hideous brutality of the European colonial era, and imperialism in its finest form during the 1800's, when Europe was busy dividing up the continent of Africa like a vast chocolate cake, King Leopold the second laid personal claim to the largely uncharted Congo Free State. The 905,000 square miles (76 times larger than Belgium) African rainforest held a vast fortune in rubber plantations, a commodity in high demand in late 19th century Industrial Europe. In 23 years he massacred 10 million Africans, by cutting off their hands, and genitals, flogging them to death, starving them into forced labour, holding children ransom, and burning villages. The ironic part of the story is that Leopold the second committed these atrocities, never e ...

Three years later, Am-bode completed his master’s degree in accounting on Federal Govern¬ment’s scholarship and also char¬tered. This fellow ‘Great Akokite’ must win Lagos governorship! Finally from AMBO 2015: ‘Ite¬siwaju Ipinle Eko’—O je mi logun. O je wa logun.

The films I have seen in the IFFK and my views on those films :-) 1. Dancing Arabs (Israel) Director: Eran Riklis Vue: A tale which portrays the existential crisis from the perspective of Eyad, a Palestinian Israeli boy. The film takes a turn where it shows human existence as the only truth. The matters like religion and ethnicity just a garnishing on the top of that truth. 2. Hanezu (Japan) Direction, Screenplay & Choreography: Naomi Kawase Vue: Mesmerising direction and cinematography by Naomi Kawase. This movie ponders over the fact That from the time of gods itself love and destruction Co exists. The fate of the hills, Mt. Miminashi, Mt. Unebi and Mt. Kagu befalls on the souls which are buried under them. The illegal mining in those hills are killing them and the hundreds of souls beneath them. The love triangle that existed between the hills is humanized through the tale of Kayo, Tetsuo and Takumi. 3.

Shaykh Nur al-Din al-Shuni is believed to have been the first person to bring people together for the sole purpose of sending prayers upon the Prophet ﷺ . Before him, each person would have their own awrad (plural of wird) of prayers which they would do on their own. But Shaykh al-Shuni created gatherings in which people came together to do this, and from him these gatherings spread to the Hijaz, al-Sham, Egypt, the Muslim West, and West Africa. Shaykh al-shuni's daily wird consisted of sending prayers 10,000 times every morning and another 10,000 every evening, beside leading group gatherings in which they would send salawaat upon the Messenger ﷺ for several hours. May Allah give us all a portion of what was granted to great Imams like Shaykh al-Shuni, ameen.

70 A.D. THE FALL OF BLACK JERUSALEM.Throughout the Bible the Israelites constantly rebelled against the Most High by disobeying his Commandments.In the book of Deuteronomy Moses forewarned the Israelites of the punishments that would befall them if they did not observe His commandments. Part of that punishment was that the Israelites would be scattered throughout the different parts of the Earth. In Deuteronomy 28: 64 the Bible says this: ‘And The Most High shall scatter thee among all people, from one end of the earth even unto the other…’ ASSYRIA In 721 B.C. Shalmanesser, the King of Assyria conquered the Ten Northern Tribes. They were deported out of the land of Israel and into the land of Assyria. In II Kings 18: 11-12 it says this: ‘And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes. Because they obeyed not the voice of the Most High, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant ...
Time Magazine has declared Vladimir Putin its Person of the Year, not because they admire him but because of his impact on the news. This led me to create my first annual "Newsmakers I Admire" list. I came up with the following: 1. Health care workers of any nationality who met the challenge of Ebola in West Africa - Here in the US, we initially ostracized them and only belatedly honored them. They are true heroes. 2. Pope Francis - As a Protestant, I greatly admire what this new Pope stands for and wish him many more years of worldwide influence. May he be to the left what John Paul II was to the right. 3. Malala Yousafzai - A Nobel Peace Prize winner young enough to fight with her younger brothers. She is a beacon of light from a part of the world that offers precious few positives. 4. Barack Obama - Yes, I know the luster has worn off but that was predictable. He bears the heaviest burdens with great dignity. He continues to stand for what is right -- defense of the middle class, immigration ref ...

ECOWAS Heads of State Kick-off 46th Ordinary Session By Prince Nagbe/LINA MONROVIA, December 15 (LINA) – The 46th Ordinary Session of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has opened in the Nigerian capital Abuja with focus on politics, security and Ebola. According to a Foreign Ministry dispatch, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan as the host of occasion, outlined both successes and challenges the regional body has encountered as it prepares to observe its 40th anniversary in 2015. At the opening ceremony Monday at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja, the Nigerian leader spoke of the improved economic growth in West Africa which, he noted, is one of the fastest growing economies on the continent. He however lamented the over 7,000 deaths in West Africa resulting from Ebola which he identified as one of the many very serious challenges facing the sub-region, adding "In the last six months, I have witnessed the negative impact of the Ebola Virus disease ...
West Africa, must review all evidence based on evidence based scientific research. Criminalising drug users destroy lives, impact economies and tear apart the social fabric of our society. It is a public health issue and must be viewed and address as such. Awareness, care, support and compassion is the way forward. Imprisoning drug users have not stopped or changed more people using drugs to address their socio-economic problems. Lets give drug users information to help them make an informed decision and seek help appropriately to reduce harm to self and the community from drugs and alcohol

Interesting. They said Anambra State does not go to school that we do only business. The truth is that Anambra State is best in Nigeria in terms of both business and Education. Anambra has been coming first in WAEC in the whole of West Africa since the past three years in a row Now they are not happy and they want to prevent us from getting more education and they increased the cut off mark of Anambra state students to enter unity schools in the country Anambra now has the highest cut off in the country than any other states in Nigeria. This was designed to stampede us but we still keep coming first. No is not an answer to an Anambrarian. Our strength lies in our heart!!

Reap the whirlwind: Climate change and terrorism By Hrach Gregorian and Gregory Alonso Pirio | Nov 11, 2014 8:57 pm | 3200 The dire predictions contained in the recently released UN climate change panel report are upon us. In Africa, the effects of climate change have stalled — and are reversing — generations of progress made against poverty and hunger. In its merciless punishment of the poor and marginalized, climate change has created a world of violent extremists — including Boko Haram — and there is no likely end in sight, unless the international community responds vigorously. As Ebola reminded us, it’s far easier to prevent than to cure. For decades, decreasing and erratic rainfall in a zone stretching from Yemen to the West Coast of Africa has disrupted traditional patterns of economic life for herders and farmers. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, in the Sahel region of West Africa “more than 10 million people, always among the poorest, suffer from food insecurity ...

The Gurunsi or Grusi people are cluster of Gur-speaking peoples of larger Niger-Congo language family found in Northern Ghana and Southern Burkina Faso. There population of Gurunsi in Ghana is estimated to be approximately 976,311 and in Burkina Faso an estimated population of 1 million. The Gurunsi people of Ghana and Burkina Faso are known for their elaborate mural painting houses and its architectural designs as well as their (sculptural) zoomorphic masks, covered with geometric motifs. The masks have concentric eyes and polychromatic effects in black, white and red. Winiama sculptures are the most geometric. The name Gurunsi comes from the Djerma language of Niger words “Gu ...

An experimental vaccine to prevent Ebola Virus disease was well-tolerated and produced immune system responses in all 20 healthy adults who received it in a phase 1 clinical trial conducted by researchers from the National Institutes of Health. The candidate vaccine, which was co-developed by the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), was tested at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The interim results are reported online in advance of print in the New England Journal of Medicine. “The unprecedented scale of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa has intensified efforts to develop safe and effective vaccines, which may play a role in bringing this epidemic to an end and undoubtedly will be critically important in preventing future large outbreaks,” said NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. “Based on these positive results from the first human trial of this candidate vaccine, we are continuing our accelerated plan for larger tr ...

Watch the spectacular and fascinating Vodun (vudu/voodoo) Festival of the people of the Republic of Benin in West Africa. Benin is the home/origin of Vodun/Voodoo in the world. Majority of the population are Vodun adherents. The Vodun Festival is held the Republic of Benin on 10th January of every year at Malahiou, Port-Novo in Cotonou, the capital city of Benin Republic. Vodun festival is a sight to behold...It tells how diverse the African culture is... I will urge other Western religious fanatics who knows nothing about vodun/voodoo but are quick to judge this ancient belief to not only watch the video but take time to read the entire post. It will enlighten them greatly!! Religion in Africa is multifaceted and has been a major influence on art, culture and philosophy. The continent's various populations and individuals are mostly adherents of Christianity or Islam. Others practice traditional and folk religions. In the countryside, religious beliefs are also often characterized by syncretism with loc ...

Breaking News! 11 Dec. 2014 Mass Graves Found in Kono! Health officials in Sierra Leone have discovered scores of bodies in a remote diamond-mining area, raising fears that the scale of the Ebola outbreak may have been underreported. The World Health Organization said they uncovered a "grim scene" in the eastern district of Kono. A WHO response team had been sent to Kono to investigate a sharp rise in Ebola cases. Ebola has killed 6,346 people in West Africa, with more than 17,800 infected. Sierra Leone has the highest number of Ebola cases in West Africa, with 7,897 cases since the beginning of the outbreak. The WHO said in a statement on Wednesday that over 11 days in Kono, "two teams buried 87 bodies, including a nurse, an ambulance driver, and a janitor drafted into removing bodies as they piled up". Bodies of Ebola victims are highly infectious and safe burials are crucial in preventing the transmission of the disease. The response team also found 25 people who had died in the past five days piled up ...

A forgotten species - Now verging threatened status. Over the past fifteen years species of giraffe on the continent of Africa have dropped dramatically by some forty per cent - placing the overall populations in danger of future extinction. 140,000 giraffes from the Giraffa camelopardalis species once roamed most of the continent of Africa, however habitat loss, habitat fragmentation, legal over-hunting, poaching and poisoning are threatening the species. In under two years its quite possible the Giraffa camelopardalis could very well be re-listed as [vulnerable] or even endangered. Research has already shown that new studies being conducted as we speak could very well see all sub-species re-listed as endangered or critically endangered - however its still early days- yet worrying ones at that. Lack of awareness: While the species - Giraffa camelopardalis is listed as least concern and with many articles being published by us and other organisations people seem more concerned about animals that are not e ...
*** HISTORY *** * Tale of two goalkeepers brings Enyimba history * It is perfectly conceivable for a goalkeeper to take the plaudits and dominate newspaper back pages in the aftermath of a triumphant cup win. Every now and again it does happen. What is almost unheard of though, is when there are two of them sharing the adulations, particularly when they play for the same team. This was the case ten years ago to this Friday, when Nigerian side Enyimba spectacularly retained their CAF Champions League title – the first club to do so in 36 years. While that is noteworthy enough, the contributions of Vincent Enyeama and Dele Aiyenugba at either end of the field place the game into the category of a continental classic. The match against Etoile Sahel of Tunisia – in their first Champions League final – was finely poised, coming off the back of a 2-1 first-leg defeat in North Africa for Enyimba. Enyeama had been on sparkling form in that game, meaning when they reconvened in Abuja – 275 miles from Enyim ...

BBC 12 December 2014 Last updated at 02:31 ET US Congress, Washington "US House passes $1.1tn budget bill to avert shutdown" The US House of Representatives has passed a $1.1tn budget, hours before government was due to shut down at midnight on Thursday. The Republican measure was passed by 219 votes to 206 after President Barack Obama had urged Democrats to support the budget. It will fund most of the government until September 2015, but some areas will only receive short-term funding. Republicans won control of both House and Senate in elections last month. A relieved John Boehner, the Republicans' House leader, said: "Thank you and Merry Christmas." Fifty-seven Democrats voted for the bill, but others were angry about the president's call for support of the Republican bill, with Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi saying she was "enormously disappointed" at Mr Obama's position. The Republicans strongly oppose President Obama's immigration reforms and so the bill only funds the Department of Homeland S ...

Ebola Virus - Facts. Key facts Ebola Virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission. The average EVD case fatality rate is around 50%. Case fatality rates have varied from 25% to 90% in past outbreaks. The first EVD outbreaks occurred in remote villages in Central Africa, near tropical rainforests, but the most recent outbreak in west Africa has involved major urban as well as rural areas. Community engagement is key to successfully controlling outbreaks. Good outbreak control relies on applying a package of interventions, namely case management, surveillance and contact tracing, a good laboratory service, safe burials and social mobilisation. Early supportive care with rehydration, symptomatic treatment improves survival. There is as yet no licensed treatment proven to neutralise the virus but a range of blood, immunolog ...

at Sunday, June 15, 2014 The Chibok Girls. . . The abduction of over three hundred female secondary school students from Government Girls Secondary School (GGSS), Chibok, Borno State, Nigeria on April 14, 2014 has elicited consternation all over the world. This is not the first time that Boko Haram has abducted female students. This is, however, its biggest haul. Chibok is a predominantly Christian community and the bulk of the abductees reflect this predominance in the ratio of 9:1. A few facts have since arisen about the abduction saga: • The Sambisa Forest is some 60 kilometers from Chibok, Borno State; • The Federal Minister of Education had advised the state Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, to relocate all students sitting for this year’s West Africa School Certificate Examination (WASCE) to Maiduguri the state capital of Borno State, Nigeria for adequate protection, because the examination body, West Africa Examination Council lost three invigilators to Boko Haram in 2013.

Last updated : 27 November 2014 Two journalists go undercover to delve into the disturbing world of West Africa ' s quack doctors . Take a drive though any city or large town in Nigeria and the chances are you will come across numerous privately owned health clinics, doctor's surgeries and hospitals . They are so widespread because Nigeria ' s state -run health system – ranked at 197th out of 200 by the World Health Organisation – is chronically underfunded and so overstretched that it simply cannot meet all the demands made on it. Private medicine fills the gap and in the best cases , at least for those who can afford it, it can provide a valuable alternative service . But while there are many legitimate private health providers , there are many more that are completely bogus; unaccredited, unregulated ' quack ' doctors - con artists and criminal scammers for the most part - who ruthlessly exploit the credulity, ignorance and desperation of the poorest and most vulnerable people in society. Indeed th ...
