I am not computer literate - Olusegun Obasanjo (photos)


I am?not computer literate - Olusegun Obasanjo
Yesterday, former President Olusegun Obasanjo revealed that he's not computer literate despite his age and attainments. He spoke in Abeokuta at the opening a two-day robotics workshop where he urged Nigerian youths to embrace robotics education because of its potential to prepare them for global leadership roles.  

In his remarks, Obasanjo allayed fears in some quarters that the adoption of robotics education would take away more jobs from Nigerians and escalate unemployment rate in the country. According to the former president, he missed the opportunity of being computer literate because he was not born during the computer age.

Obasanjo said: “Let me also comment on what has been the fear of the people. Here we have unemployment and people will say we need to create mass employment opportunities for our people. It will not be so. What will normally happen is that there would be jobs that would emanate from robotics. The jobs would compensate what robotics will take over. “We have seen that through history. When train came, people thought there would be no way for road transportation. Same thing happened when railway came. People also thought when aero plane came that railways and cars would not be useful. But, today, roads are being constructed and we have not even done enough. So, if we actually planned well, robots will have a place and other jobs will be created for our teeming population not only in Nigeria and Africa, but also all over the world.”

Chemical attack that killed close to 100 people in Syria was the work of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad - U.N report

Chemical attack that killed close to 100 people in Syria was the work of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad - U.N report
The Sarin attack at Khan Sheikhun, Syria, on the 4th of April this year that killed close to 100 people with spine-chilling videos showing even children gasping for air while foaming in their mouth, is the handwork of Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad, the United Nations has revealed in a report, Thursday, six month after the attack. 

Assad has been accused of multiple war crimes and crimes against humanity by the U.N, which his regime backed by Russia, has continued to deny, saying they don't have chemical weapons claiming an airstrike hit a chemical weapons depot in the region.

Donald Trump, angered by the Syrian attack, which he said 'no child of God' should experience, ordered the U.S Military to launch 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase.
"‎Time and again, we see independent confirmation of chemical weapons use by the Assad regime. And in spite of these independent reports, we still see some countries trying to protect the regime. That must end now,"  Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the United Nations, said in a statement, Thursday night.
"The panel is confident that the Syrian Arab Republic is responsible for the release of Sarin at Khan Sheikhun on 4 April 2017," the UN report says.
The report released Thursday was compiled by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the United Nations' Joint Investigative Mechanism, the investigative panel probing the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

So, they had to blow the door up with dynamite," the witness said. "For several minutes, they were shooting sporadically, two of the policemen that engaged them were killed but none of the robbers was killed during the shooting"
Spokesperson for the Ondo State Police Command, Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident said the command deployed more officers and men in the scene.

"It's not ethical for a woman to sit very close to a man that is not her husband" - Commandant of Kano Hisbah board calls for separation of male and female passengers in public transport


Malam Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, the commandant of Kano Hisbah board has called for the separation of male and female passengers in public means of transportation, Daily Trust reports.
Malam Daurawa gave the advice while delivering a lecture on the position of Islamic law on the relationship between male and female passengers in public transport, during a one day sensitization seminar organized by the office of the senior special assistant to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state on tricycles, Hon. Salisu Shitu.
"Women are highly dignified, they are being dignified in Islam and anyone who dignifies a woman dignifies his biological mother as well; that was why God did not allow anyone to come into being except through a woman," he said.
"Islam teaches and preaches dignity for women and thus requires that we protect them, and to care for them. It is not ethical therefore for a woman to sit very close to a man that is not her husband to the extent that they would be robbing shoulders." he added.
He also advised tricycle operators to use their business as a means of serving God and humanity urging them desist from all acts of immorality, drunkenness and all forms of un-Islamic behavior that may delude them from their faith.
‘’I got a case from Fagge command that some young tricycle operators now use pornographic films to lure their vulnerable female passengers to sexual immorality. Some of you are into the habit of taking advantage of your trade to rob people of their belongings, if you want this business to flourish you must stop all these unholy practices’’ he charged.

HIV-positive man bags 24 years in jail for infecting 30 women



An Italian man has been jailed for 24 years after intentionally infecting 30 women with HIV. Valentino Talluto is said to have had unprotected sex with at least 53 women after his HIV diagnosis in 2006, the youngest of whom was 14 at the relationship’s start.
.

The accountant, using the pseudonym “Hearty Style”, went on social networks and dating sites to find his victims. On Friday, judges sentenced the 33-year-old to 24 years in prison.
.
Talluto’s defence lawyers had argued their client’s actions were “imprudent, but not intentional”. However, those who asked him to wear a condom were told he was either allergic, or had recently been tested for HIV, news agency AFP reported.
.
When some of the women confronted him after discovering they were infected, he denied he was a carrier of the potentially deadly virus, which can lead to Aids. As a result of his actions, another four people contracted the virus on top of the women he directly infected: three men and one baby.
.
Prosecutor Elena Neri told the court last month: “His actions were intended to sow death.” However, Talluto – whose mother was an HIV-infected drug addict who died when he was four – told the court if that had been the case, he would not have gone to the effort of having actual relationships.
.
“Many of the girls know my friends and family,” he said. “They say that I wanted to infect as many people as possible. If that had been the case, I would have gone for casual sex in bars, I would not have brought them into my life.”
.

Judges in Rome deliberated over the sentence for more than 10 hours before announcing the verdict. According to local media, victims wept as the sentence was read out. However, it fell short of the life term prosecutors had asked for.
