Senator warns on rising population, urges Nigerian govt to release $1m for Family Planning

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Lanre Tejuosho, has warned of dangers ahead for Nigeria if it does not control its population growth. He called on the executive to release the additional one million dollars meant for Family Planning services.

Mr Tejuosho (APC-Ogun) made the call during the 5th Nigeria Family Planning Conference on Thursday in Abuja.

He said FP is a major contributor in the progress of Nigeria, saying it will help reduce the nation’s populace.

“If we continue to allow the families to grow, it means we are heading to doom.

“The most important thing is the “green dot’’ and every woman should be encouraged to walk into any outlet with the green dot to access FP services,” he said.

The lawmaker also said that it was important for the nation to improve on its FP purposes in order to reach its full potential.

He added that investment in FP was one of the smartest investments in achieving demographic dividend.

Mr Tejuosho further said that access to FP services would help reduce mortality rates in society.

He, therefore, admonished the government, private sector and stakeholders to improve on the accessibility of FP products.

Prince Harry & Meghan planning to move to Africa after arrival of their baby

Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, could be planning to move to Africa after the upcoming birth of their first child, according to reports in British newspaper The Sunday Times.

The royal couple could move abroad for two or three years as part of a major international role being devised by the royal family’s courtiers, the paper reports, with Africa raised as a potential destination.

According to the report, David Manning, the former British ambassador to the US and special adviser on international affairs to Prince Harry has proposed a plan for the pair to take on a more international position that could build on their work for the Commonwealth.

A decision is not expected until 2020, the paper says.

That time frame would allow them to start raising their child at their home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

“Any future plans for The Duke & Duchess are speculative at his stage. No decisions have been taken about future roles,” a Buckingham Palace spokesperson told CNN.

There are 19 Commonwealth nations in Africa, including South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda and Ghana. The couple have already visited North Africa on an official royal engagement, touring Morocco in February.

CCTV captures Nanny beating ailing 2-yr-old Baby with Carpet Brush for vomiting on Sofa

A woman in Kenya has shared a CCTV footage of her house help beating her ailing 2-year-old daughter with a carpet brush because she vomited on the sofa.

Read below:

“On this video, this is my daughter Amani,she is 2 and 1/2 years old and the other is Praxides Lumiti Vicheti, the nanny from hell. On 12th March 2019, i saw a footage from my CCTV as my daughter was being brutally beaten with a carpet brush simply because she had vomitted on the Sofa.

First, my daughter was sick, the previous day we were from hospital and sadly my daughter was diagnosed with ulcers(God knows how long this torture had been happening for my daughter to be so stressed).

We rushed back home and quickly fired the nanny without looking at the full footage. We should have called the police! I know!!!!!I swear its always hard to explain the decisions we make while on panic mode.

Finally after the lady left we reviewed the footage and my heart still breaks when i see what my daughter went through. So we decided to just use legal means to get justice for our daughter. We reported the matter and finally began the journey to tracking and arresting her.

We finally arrested her in parklands where she was working( thank you Viola Ayoo for pretending you knew nothing till we came with the police). On arresting her, we came to know that a few days after leaving my house she had a job at Phenom Estate and later on left for Parklands. This DMs have a huge demand.

She was taken to court and is finally out on bond but i wouldn’t be suprised if she is working for another lady who knows nothing about the devil she welcomed to her home.

This is my point, what ever happened to my daughter is irreversible and hopefully she will be well helthwise. Its my sole duty to ensure that no other child goes through this or even worse.
Kindly share and save a child from this monster nannies.”

*She is out on bond stay woke my sisters!!!
