FACTS ABOUT EBOLA - SIMPLE GRAPHIC #ABUJA

Ebola is caused by a virus. The virus spreads between humans by contact with body fluids — such as blood, urine and sweat — or through objects that have been contaminated with infected fluids, like needles. Ebola can’t be spread through air, food or water. The only way to get it is to be in direct contact with someone who is experiencing symptoms. 



Ebola
Symptoms of Ebola can include fever, headache, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting and abnormal bleeding. There is no cure. However, early health care including hydration can increase the chance for survival.

The people most at risk for Ebola are health care workers who care for infected patients.

The Food Expo is coming to the nation’s capital  today. A 3-day community based event, creating awareness about food and use involvement within the agricultural sector. An event aiming to create excitement about agricultural opportunities amongst the Nigerian Youth, possibly leading to increased participation within the industry, an essential measure to ensure the long-term sustainability of expansion of Nigerian agricultural production and process capacity.

With a proposed variety of avenues and platforms, the Food Expo plans to relate with young people by engaging them in creative conversations centered on agriculture, helping them make well informed decisions about getting involved in the agricultural sector. Different activities shall be incorporated into the program to entertain yet educate the youth, such as workshops, a “Young Entrepreneur Challenge” and a “Celebrity Cookout” with confirmed celebrities such as Stella Damasus, Timi Dakolo, Nse Ikpe-Etim and Chigurl and confirmed participating radio stations. Alongside the education and entertainment aspect, food companies and other famous brands such as Dangote, Nestle, Heinz, Maggi, Grand Cereals, Vita Milk, Tropica, Scanfrost, Frutta, Pringles, Snickers Chocolate, 7Days Croissants, and so much more to show case and sell their products to Expo participants at extreme discounted prices with even Special Royal Farms with their knock-off prices on fresh produce of food, fruits and vegetables.

This is the ultimate Christmas bargain exhibition not to be missed. From Christmas hampers, tomatoes, yam, even ugu, it is definitely the Christmas shopper’s paradise!

This jam-packed festival, celebrating local farmers, chefs, companies and organizations who work to better our food system and encourage the youth to participate in Agriculture, will be held December 7th to the 9th at Eagle Square, Abuja.

An event not to be missed! For more information, please visit: www.foodexpo.com.ng. Twitter @FoodExpo or call 08088017995


5 distinct Eateries that have sprung up in Lugbe, Abuja

By Blessing Mills, AbujaCity.com guest writer / Blogger

 

Nigeria is a huge country with an assortment of tribal groups. Just as the Nigerian culture is varied and diversified, so also is the food recipes and cuisine. All the different ethnic groups in Nigeria have peculiar ways of cooking food as well as the staple food by which they are known.

Food

Yes, that is the case even though foods like rice and eba/soup are general and are eaten by all the ethnic groups, their manner of preparing these foods still vary from tribe to tribe and from one ethnic group to the other. All the Nigeria food recipes are a combination of local food, fruit, vegetables, fishes and meats of different types and kinds.

Abuja, the federal capital territory, is packed full with Nigerians from different ethnic groups and cultures that have left their original villages, towns and states in search of greener pastures. These people of course carried with them their various traditions and cultures into the city, cuisine, food recipes and eating habits inclusive. This has led to the springing up of a variety of eateries which serve the needs of the people of different cultures and ethnic groups as well as international visitors or residents within the city.

Looking at the city center of Abuja Federal Capital Territory (FCT), which could rightly be termed the “Fastest growing city in Africa” one could hardly believe that there will be communities within the locality of Abuja that aren’t as developed as the city center.

However, the high cost of living within the city gave rise to many satellite towns in Abuja among which is Lugbe.    

Lugbeview1

Lugbe is a densely populated area with top class, middle class and lower class individuals living within the area. Many people, who work within the city center, live in Lugbe as a result of its close proximity to the city center and due to the cost of living within the city center. Consequently, Lugbe has become a bee hive of activities with people engaging in different activities to make ends meet.

Eateries, restaurants and fast food business as well as local “suya” sellers, “akara”-bean cake makers and local “mama put” sellers are also flourishing and booming. Lugbe has in fact become one of the major trading centers of Abuja. Among the majority of eateries that have sprung up in Lugbe are restaurants and fast Foods making a variety of Nigerian and African food recipes and cuisines as well as intercontinental dishes.

Soup 1

You will find English dishes, Local Nigerian/African dishes, and assorted international dishes- mixed /American, Indian and Chinese cuisines among many others. If you ever happen to be in Lugbe, do not hesitate to visit some of these eateries, you will find them useful and helpful. These eateries can make your breakfasts, lunches and dinners divine and ecstatic moments. The food is always freshly cooked and the environment clean and tidy.

Some are experts in a variety of sea food especially fried rice and fish. You are sure to get an excellent in house service as well as outdoor services. You can also book their “take away services”. They are always hungry for your feedback, be it positive or negative to help improve their services and that is why they are ever ready to assist whatever your feeding needs are. However, we are just going to give you 5 different eateries among the vast majority of eateries in Lugbe to enable you make a choice when you need their services.

Chairman do something: THE ABSENCE OF SHAME IN POLITICS

CHAIRMAN DO SOMETHING :

THE ABSENCE OF SHAME IN POLITICS.

By Donald Ideh

 

Shame-on-you

We would not be moral beings if we could not act rationally. If on the one hand, we are propelled by impulse to take a particular course of action, and by desire, which is to say in an attempt to satisfy a feeling, we are prompted to act in another way, it is reason which steers the boat and keeps us on course.

But morality is something outside of us. The right thing to do does not depend on what I think or feel. Another man from a different society, if I explained to him why he should do this or refrain from a certain act would understand that there are rules, which should guide human conduct. I believe that ethics or morality is universal, before Hobbes and Kant, wrote about these issues, my igbo ancestors had thought and rationalised a specifically African world view, which at its very core, was not all that much different from what Kant went on to write about. Hegel and Hobbes, conspire in their writing to rob us of our agency through their language and writing, but our lived experience underscores the lies in the words that they wrote about Africa.
The fact is that moral thinking is about what is the right thing to do in a particular situation, and African societies, were no different from other societies, when one or more people are gathered together and share a similar language and face similar travails, they agree rules of behaviour to govern their actions.

Social life, has meaning when we live together as a community. For example, Omenala, are the laws and customs of the ibo people, and the deity which decides, the arbiter is Ani or Ala, Ale or Ali, depending on which dialect you speak. The goddess of morality is involved in judging human actions. When an act offends the deity it is described as nso Ala. An offence against the ground.

So as well as telling the truth we should always try and act with benevolence. We must try and do the right thing. There are two reasons why, I made a slight digression into igbo culture. First, to show that morality or ethical conduct is in some sense universal and certainly that it existed in Africa, before the European men arrived with ships, muskets and bibles on the red earth of Africa. Everyone requires respect as a human being but we do not always receive what is rightfully ours in life.

Just as ethics and religion and morality did not stop the white slave traders or Arab slave traders from capturing their fellow men and putting them in manacles, I suppose one should not be surprised that our current crop of politicians are prepared to turn us all into mere vassals, while they plunder the national coffers. Why should this be the case?

Africa is not really poor, it is just being plundered. When the colonialist plundered our resources, they realised that they had to be more efficient in the way they went about taking the bounty of the earth from our ancestors. They built railways to carry the cocoa from the cocoa producing areas to the coast. They took ground nuts from Kano to Lagos by rail and then shipped it overseas. They built shipyards and habours to load and discharge the ships that would carry the fruits of Africa to the rest of the world. They built communication systems so that the people in the colony could keep in contact with the people in the metropolitan areas. They adapted some of our traditional farming methods to an industrial scale so that more crops could be produced for cheaper. They did none of these things because there were altruistic or ‘morally superior’. They were simply more efficient. When they gave us ‘laws’, they did not give us rights. If you wanted to bring a case under English law, you had to go to London to argue your case. The native court or the district court, was neither a court in the true sense of the word, nor they did not apply any ‘laws’ as we would understand them today. Some even applied ‘native law and custom’, which made sure that the cosmology of the ‘native’ was all encompassing. But why am I talking about these historical incidents?
In ancient times, the collective mentality created strong bonds between members of the community. A crime against the land had to be avenged and the balance of the earth restored. The punishments were often crude and in some cases inhuman and degrading in today’s terms. For example a yam thief was paraded through the village, often naked and mocked by all the members of the community. Such a person would be shunned for a period of time. A rich person was expected to be a virtuous person, and this notion of virtuousness, created a benchmark or a yardstick by which right action was judged. Loss of face was considered a grave punishment. Rehabilitation, took time and sacrifices, if it was ever going to be possible to restore honour.
With modernisation, the era of big government and rapid industrialisation, the people moved from rural areas to urban areas and this connection with village life was irredeemably ruptured. It was replaced with more individual values such as the acquisition of material wealth. In other places, in other societies, there was a gradual transition from agrarian to urbanisation. In Europe, this process took several hundred years. In the case of Nigeria it took about 50 years from the early 1900s to 1960, when Nigeria, gained independence. In many respects, that process has continued until today. Some might argue that it has stalled to some extent. Economic growth and social development has to attain a certain degree of equilibrium or balance otherwise, the social effects of rapid industrialisation create many modern social problems for societies, not least of which, include, the weakening of community ties.
But the purpose of this piece is not to lament, the modern age. It is high time we acknowledge the epoch we are in, and, we are in the midst of a ferocious period of social change arising out of globalisation.

I do not understand, how a government that
is supposed to belong to its people, can steal from its people. I do not understand how you can take an allocation of millions of dollars and put it in a personal account with such impunity. The Banks do not bat an eyelid, nor do the neighbours, family and friends, nobody in the community asks any questions, it is simply accepted as a fact of life like the rain. You can be destitute one moment or a lowly public official, and in the next moment a billionaire. The rags to riches success story in the Nigerian context, leaves far much more to good fortune and a great deal of imagination, than hard work. What is missing is any ethical connection between the source of wealth and the amount of social recognition, which accompanies wealth.

If a rich list of Nigeria is compiled a noticeable feature is that many of the billionaires are actually ex public officials. This is noticeable because when you compare it with the rich lists complied in America and Europe you immediately notice the preponderance of entrepreneurs. People with vision and financial acumen tend to dominate such lists. In the case of Nigeria, you wonder how a public official could legitimately gain ownership of an oil well. You wonder how a person with a salary of a public official could accumulate such wealth as to buy a former state owned company. It really does not take a great deal imagination to reach the conclusion that government business is the most profitable commercial activity in Nigeria.

But there is a new dawning coming. The youth are restless and the old are tired. The masses are angry. Slowly, very cautiously, new questions are being asked and new answers are being provided. The old certainties no longer apply. The old answers do not satisfy. We are outing away the circus of tribalism and greed. When one person suffers, we all suffer. When the children go hungry, it is our future, which is being squandered. There is no convoy long enough, no private jet high enough or security fence wide enough to keep out the stench of corruption ,which assails our nostrils on a daily basis. 
We are creating networks and sharing information. You see, oppression no matter how deeply ingrained has an expiry date. History is on the side of the people, and wherever you see an oppressed people, you see a confluence of factors pushing for freedom and pushing for change. We can no longer accept the excuses of our leaders. None of these problems or issues are beyond ingenuity. It takes, vision, courage and good leadership, that is all.



CELEBRITY SPLASH: CHARLYBOY, THE ARISTOCRATIC REBEL: UNTOLD STORY OF HIS WEALTH, COURAGE, & SUCCESS PLUS HIS $200 MILLION FORTUNE (PHOTOS)

BIKE

The path of self-discovery and originality from cradle to greatness is less traveled by sojourners because it is long, dusty, and turbulent with no shortcuts to the preferred destination. Great men like CHARLY BOY are not necessarily perfect. They only stand out from the crowd with a mark of distinction and deviation- daring to be who they truly are. Thus, they see, think and act above the norm of events. They do not speak the language of the immediate generation and are rarely understood by contemporaries because they are future-based and in some cases stigmatized as controversial until their perspectives and actions, for which they were stigmatized become obvious to the wondering society in retrospect.

Early in life, CHARLY BOY, like the Legendary Afro-beat King, FELA ANIKULAPO KUTI, was tossed between upholding his aristocratic status as first son of the renowned JUSTICE CHUKWUDIFU OPUTA, and establishing his originality on the sands of time by heeding the call of destiny to make a difference in his generation. He rebelled against parental interference in his career path with a determination to deliver himself as a gift to his generation. A decision he paid dearly for. Today, CHARLY BOY is not only an entertainer but a house hold name and an enigmatic social engineer who has carved a niche for himself with an amazing cult followership. C.B as he is fondly called by close pals and loyalists chose a different path against the wish of his people and consistently pursued his vision to reality.

Angels

The seemingly lost child has now become one of the most respected of his family and a reputable figure in the Nigerian entertainment industry. From the days of no slippers like our President, to the years of lost future in the village, the enigmatic Area Fada began his journey. When little or nothing is heard about those he started with, CHARLY BOY has consistently kept his brand above boards. He is indisputably one of the most celebrated Nigerian entertainers, and obviously one of the richest celebrities in Africa. Not much has been known over time about what the AREA FADA is worth in terms of wealth.

 

Today, we have decided to dig into the world of fame and affluence of the AREA FADA, who navigated his way out of the artificial poverty he created for himself. Today, the Lost - sheep has become a child with a vision, and the same parents we hear live in his family house in Gwarinpa- Abuja. It would be recalled that he had reportedly acquired a second-hand Helicopter in 2009 for his family use. Investigation had revealed that CHARLY BOY sold the Helicopter after one week of purchase due to some mechanical faults. However, the man who is synonymous with innovation zeal, zest and enthusiasm has continued to amass wealth for himself and his family through his artistic ingenuity. CHARLY BOY who has been away to the United Kingdom for a tour is rumoured to have just acquired another second-hand Helicopter worth $780,000.00.

Complete toys

 

It was rumoured that the Areafada bought the Helicopter from a company called Rim, which recently put up one of its Helicopters for sale. CHARLY BOY was said to have quickly rushed to the company to pay for the Helicopter. We cannot say exactly where the transaction took place. As a result of this new development, we have taken a special timeout to gather very explicit and reliable information on the AREA FADA’S wealth profile from a source very close to the AREA FADA. It is so shocking to know that CHARLY BOY has acquired apartments on every street in Gwarinpa, Abuja. It was further disclosed that out of his patriotism of the estate, Galadima bus stop and his street were named after him. The different houses he possesses have been put out to rent, as most of the tenants do not even have ideas on who owns them, as they deal strictly with the agents and his lawyers. His 25 buildings in Gwarinpa cannot be disputed. In recognition of his antecedents as a social engineer, some Bus stops in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Benin have been named after him.

 

The source had also given us some pictures he got from CHARLY BOY showing his different apartments abroad including Dubai (see photos), thirty landed property in Abuja including the newly secured CHARLY BOY YOUTH CENTRE, fleet of cars and power bikes, 3 apartments in Lagos, an apartment in the United States, and a night club in England. A credible source had disclosed further that CHARLY BOY recently sold one of his apartments in Ghana. The Multi-billionaire has a mansion for an office just immediately after his house in the same estate. CHARLY BOY has been rated by our reporter as one of the richest living celebrities in Nigeria. He has not only acquired fame, but stupendous wealth as well. Despite the success, many troubling questions abound. Why has his life remained eccentric? Many have concluded that it is as a result of his wealth that he continues to spend money on make-ups, eccentric costumes. Some have said that it is because he feels so successful that he now sleeps in Coffins, keeps Python as a pet and a host of other weird things he does. Even at that, he is obviously not deterred by mounting criticisms as he appears to be too comfortable with his life-style.

Today, “The Stone that the builders rejected” has now become “the chief cornerstone” in the OPUTA family. The supposed stubborn child, and so called “big rascal”, and “black - sheep” of the family is now a positive reference point and major help to the family. Despite his achievements, the General of the People’s army as he is sometimes called is down to earth. People who have met the Areafada one on one have confessed that his humility is to a fault. This is not unconnected to the place he stands in the society.

DSC_0851

This could also be a strategy he has put in place to be associate freely with the masses he advocates for. Apart from his wealth, not many are even aware that the Areafada is a grandfather. Charlyboy is said to be happy with his 9 children who are all doing well in their various endeavors. They are mostly graduates. One of his sons is an Associate Professor at MIT, Boston. His meteoric rise from grass to grace is not just phenomenal but inspiring. Certainly, behind every glory, there is a story. Indeed CHARLY BOY’S story is that of “from rags to riches”, “from cradle to greatness”, from obscurity to fame, from poverty to stupendous wealth and from failure to success in life. This is a story of vision, doggedness, consistency, tenacity, perseverance and great focus; an obvious inspirational story to the youth.

Abuja to play host to international decision makers in the defence, anti-terrorism and security industry

The Nigeria Counter Terror Symposium is to be officially opened by Her Excellency Erelu Olusola Obada, the Honourable Minister of State for Defence.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

20100726_AntiterrorPolice

August 28, 2012 — As Nigeria’s defence expenditure expands to meet the growing terror threat, estimated to be US$2.1 billion this year and expected to grow at 22% a year to reach US$4.76 billion by 2016, the Nigeria Counter Terror Symposium in Abuja, 20-22 November 2012 is set to bring together senior decision makers from the Nigerian Ministry of Defence and international government, military, police and industry representatives.

The Nigeria Counter Terror Symposium, to be officially opened by Her Excellency Erelu Olusola Obada, the Honourable Minister of State for Defence, will provide a forum to discuss Nigeria’s growing anti-terrorist challenges, force development strategies, national JV and PPP opportunities, as well as assessing a range of solutions available from leading international and indigenous security providers.

International speakers already confirmed include: 
• Ambassador Francisco Caetano Jose Madeira, Head of Counter‐Terrorism Cooperation of the African Union, Director of the African Centre for the Study & Research on Terrorism 
• His Excellency Simon Mulongo, Vice Chairperson, Committee on Defence & Internal Affairs, Parliament of Uganda 
• Laurent Panza Elumba, Deputy Director, DRC National Counter Terrorism Committee 
• Martin A. Ewi, Senior Researcher, Institute for Security Studies

According to Duraid Jalili, Head of Defence from the World Defence Group, “by engaging with a range of urgent discussions, from developing C4ISR architectures and information sharing, to training practices and trade requirements, this strategic gathering provides a unique opportunity to strengthen inter-agency cooperation and create new trade partnerships with the Nigerian security forces.” He also adds “with the new national security strategy and stronger focus on internal security operations against rebel groups in the Niger Delta and the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram, Nigeria is the most active it has ever been in modernising its capabilities to meet this threat, and engaging with internationals to strengthen collaboration with security allies and international industry providers.”
