Staying healthy needs one to keep his or her nutritional balance. See your dietician to advise you on your fat level because the fat content your body requires differs from person to person.

SUKUBO SARAIGBE SUKUBO, CHAIRMAN NATIONAL YOUTH COUNCIL OF NIGERIA RIVERS CHAPTER.

Chairman National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) Sukubo Saraigbe Sukubo, has described the average youth in the state as impatient.

The youth chairman who stated this while chatting with Naija Vox-Pop in a reaction to the up-coming inauguration of the National Association of Social Media Practitioners of Nigeria (NASMPON) Rivers State Chapter, advised youths in the state to be patient and look inward for job creation rather than waiting on the government to provide them with white collar jobs or taking up arms.

“Oil companies and multi-nationals have been laying off their staff due to the recession, so we have been encouraging youths to go after careers in which they can be productive because white collar jobs are no longer readily available in the nation, and so, a paradigm shift is needed to help us think of what we can do with our hands so that we can be independent and become entrepreneurs.

Ideas rule the world now, so anything the youths can do with their ideas and knowledge, we will support them to grow’’. Continue reading

The phrase ‘stomach infrastructure’ in Nigeria has been made prominent with the likes of governors, such as Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, who has constantly maintained that meeting the stomach needs of his supporters is the top priority of his administration. Governor Fayose has made it a practice to offer the poor, rice, chicken and clothes during Christmas, Easter and Muslim festive holidays.  He is much loved for this gesture by the downtrodden in Ekiti. Often times, the governor patronizes the popular Mama Put in Ado Ekiti, distributes money and bean cake to multitude of children.

Other state governors have copied the stomach infrastructure policy of the Ekiti State government, having seen the appreciative response of the poor to the gestures of Governor Fayose, in view of the harsh economic situation in Nigeria.

However, many are of the view that the stomach infrastructure policy of the government is cosmetic, as it does not actually solve the economic problems that the people are facing, which include unemployment, poor education, lack of health access by the poor and vulnerable. Many children in states, such as Ekiti are dying of preventable and treatable diseases. Child killer diseases, like pneumonia, malaria, diarrhea and measles are on the increase. According to UNICEF, “everyday, Nigeria loses 2,300 under-five year olds and 145 women of child bearing age. This makes the country the second largest contributor to the under-five and maternal mortality rate in the world. JUSTICE FOR MRS. JUSTICE FOR MRS. CHISOM ANAKWE AND JOSHUA’s BABY Continue reading
