Doctors protest as kidnappers abduct another colleague in Calabar




Dr. Emem Udoh, a Senior Registrar in the Department of Paediatrics, University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, has been abducted by unknown gunmen on Monday, while on duty in Calabar, Cross River State. 
This came barely two days after another medical practitioner with the Cross River State College of Education Medical Centre in the Akamkpa LGA, Dr. Usang Ekanem, was released following his abduction on December 26, 2017. 
There are indications that members of the state chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association may embark on an indefinite strike starting from Wednesday (today) in protest against the incessant abduction of their colleagues. 

The Public Relations Officer of the state branch of NMA, Dr. Ernest Ochang, said, “This is to inform the general public, particularly those resident in Cross River State that another medical doctor was kidnapped on January 8, 2018. 
This is coming after Dr. Usang Ekanem was suddenly released after we threatened a sit at home action. The young doctor was coming back from an extended duty of caring for children which is her passion and had to work beyond her schedule due to the few hands available in her unit. 
We wish to inform Cross Riverians that this is one too many and a direct affront on our corporate existence. We took an oath to save lives and that much we must do. We pay tax and desire to live peacefully in the society. 
This targeted attack on us is unexplainable. What is more worrisome is the quietness of government whose responsibility is to provide security for its citizens. It is our collective resolve to call government to act through whatever means that is at our disposal.”

Update: Arsene Wenger says Alex Iwobi will be fined if found guilty of clubbing 36 hours before Sunday's FA Cup defe

Update: Arsene Wenger says Alex Iwobi will be fined if found guilty of?clubbing?36 hours before Sunday

Coach Arsene Wenger has said Alex Iwobi will be fined if it is confirmed he was at a party 36 hours before Sunday's FA Cup loss at Nottingham Forest after a video appearing to show the 21-year-old at the party in the early hours of Saturday morning was released on social media.

Iwobi played the full match as holders Arsenal lost the third-round tie but the Arsenal manager said is it "impossible" and "unacceptable" to go out within 48 hours of a game.  The footage, which was uploaded to Snapchat, appears to show the Nigerian dancing at a party at a house in central London at 02:37 GMT, and was published in The Sun newspaper.  

But Wenger said Iwobi was not involved in either taking drugs or drinking alcohol saying "first of all we have to be cautious with everything that is coming out. When you read what is reported it is like he has taken drugs. He was not involved in that at all. He has been out at a birthday party and how long he has stayed? That is important. After, I will decide what happens."  

Wenger added: "You know that sometimes you want to prepare 100% but it is not always a guarantee you will be at your best. But that is what is requested from a top-level professional."

'You have power over any form of addiction' - Nigerian model celebrates one year since she quit smoking





Nigerian super model, Ishioma Onyebo has written a lenghty inspirational piece talking about her battle with ciggarette addiction and how she was able to finally quit smoking over one year ago.

According to her, 'I  once missed my flight to Capetown, not because I was late, but I was in the smoking area chatting with a smoke buddy, and not listening to the announcement. Cigarette was my companion'.

Read her piece below...
It has been one year and one week since I quit smoking. One of the best decisions I made in 2017. Just like yesterday I Remember my doctor telling me, young lady you are under weight. I was 53kg. Battling with low blood pressure. Smoking felt so good. Nicotine addiction was on 100. The first thing I do when I wake up was to smoke, or I won’t function properly.

I have always been a lil shy and kept to myself( not arrogant) like loads of people thought. Story for another day. My wake up call was my doctor begging me to be more thoughtful about my health, in my mind I was insulting the man, saying is it you health or your skinny.

I love food, and cooking, but guess what my appetite was gone as a result of smoking. I will keep to myself as long as I had my favorite menthol cigarette,every other thing can wait, my favorite spot was my bathroom at home . That was my smoking area, once missed my flight to Capetown, not because I was late, but I was in the smoking area chatting with a smoke buddy, and not listening to the announcement. Cigarette was my companion, and there were some useless so called friends then, who will just judge you cos you smoked. Main while that was my only addiction. Imagine the type of shit these pretentious self hating lots indulge in.

I stopped smoking at my own time. It’s been on hell of a struggle, oh and the withdrawal syndrome and the mood swings. I will just pick a fight with my man for no reason accuse him of despicable things. Well most of the time I was right. I will cry and wonder around my bathroom asking myself so you won’t smoke, I channeled my energy into writing and less procrastination, I embarked on the things that made me more happy. Giving back to my society, traveling more, cooking whenever I find the time to.

Met an Amazing French foodie on one of my many trips last year, and we spent 3 months looking for the best food in town, driving to crazy places just to try out food. My appetite was back. I was eating drinking and just staying happy. And 3 months after I gained a healthy 10kg. I am happy with my new body, my skin is glowing, chemical free no bleaching cream, just coconut oil and loads of water.

I hope my lengthy write up inspires someone out there to quit whatever addiction that is stopping you from living your best life. I am not going to be like those useless people who judged me cos of nicotine o, I no kill person oh!!! I am not here to judge but encourage. You have power over any form of addiction.

'Stay home and improve your economies' - President Buhari tells illegal migrants



Rather than dare the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea, with scores of lives lost in the process, President Muhammadu Buhari has urged illegal migrants to stay back home, and find ways to improve their personal economies.

Receiving Hon. Louise Mushikiwabo, Rwandan Minister of Foreign Affairs, who came as Special Envoy of President Paul Kagame, at the State House, Abuja, Tuesday, President Buhari said Nigeria had taken it upon herself to bring back thousands of her citizens now stranded in Libya.

"Illegal migration is now a major issue in Africa. Many dare the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea to get into Europe, and many die in the process. Or they get into trouble, as we now see in Libya. I don't envy our position, as many Blacks claim to be Nigerians, even when they are not. Our Embassies in North Africa are now overworked, trying to identify the true Nigerians. Most of the reasons they mention for migrating illegally are untenable. They should stay here, and see how they can improve their own economies, instead of risking their lives," President Buhari said.

The President said Kagame, as the incoming Chairman of African Union (AU), had the issues of South Sudan, separatist agitation in southern Cameroon, unrest in Togo, and many others on the continent, to contend with.

"Gaddafi's long rule produced many people, whose only skill is how to shoot guns. Now, they are scattered around the continent, still with their weapons, and fomenting trouble," President Buhari said, adding that Nigeria was taking steps to curtail the development.

Hon. Mushikiwabo said President Kagame looked forward to the counsel and support of the Nigerian President, as he assumes the AU chair from this month.
"He will also need counsel on security issues in the Sahel, ongoing reforms in AU, borrow your expertise in agriculture, and renew friendship and kinship between our two countries," Hon. Mushikiwabo said.

Zimbabwe anti-corruption Investigators probe Grace Mugabe's Ph.D. amid allegations she didn't study (Photos)

Zimbabwe anti-corruption Investigators probe Grace Mugabe

The Zimbabwean anti-corruption Investigators on Monday revealed that they are probing the circumstances surrounding the controversial awarding of a doctorate to former first lady Grace Mugabe.
She received a doctorate from the University of Zimbabwe in 2014, amid allegations she did not study for it, while the former president Robert Mugabe was chancellor of the university.

Critics argued at the time that Grace, 52, had not actually studied or undertaken research to earn the doctorate and that she had been handed her diploma just months after enrolling. PhDs typically require several years of full-time research and writing.
Her dissertation has never been made public, according to local media, breaking with the established policy of most Zimbabwean public universities to publish doctoral students’ theses.

The state-run Herald newspaper reported in 2014 that Grace’s dissertation was on the theme of “changing social structure (and) the functions of the family” and that she undertook research on Zimbabwean children’s homes.
Grace was personally capped by her husband Mugabe, who was also the chancellor of the University of Zimbabwe, and praised by other government officials who defended the controversial degree award.
Zimbabwe anti-corruption Investigators probe Grace Mugabe“We confirm there is such a report and there is such a probe,” said Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission spokeswoman Phyllis Chikundura who declined to provide further details.
Grace whose husband resigned last November under pressure from the military and ruling party, was routinely accused of extravagant spending on luxury clothes and international travel, and of involvement in corrupt land deals.
