The support for South-West #security outfit, Amotekun, shows how #primitive #Yoruba people are — Miyetti Allah

punchnewspapers-1579618292152_1579618426068

According to Punchnews, The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore herdsmen group has said the support for the South-West security outfit, Amotekun, shows how primitive Yoruba people are in politics.

The National Secretary of the group, Alhassan Saleh, said this during Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ programme on Monday.

Saleh said it was unfortunate that both the Yoruba intelligentsia and political class could support such an initiative which seeks to curb the activities of herdsmen in the region.

When asked if he indeed told The PUNCH last week that support for Amotekun could cost the South-West the Presidency in 2023, Saleh admitted saying so but said it was not blackmail.

He said, “It is not blackmail. Unfortunately, with very strong apology to my South-West friends, despite the education of the Yoruba people, they still remain the most primitive in terms of politics. They are not tolerant to opposition and if you allow them to have an ethnic army, definitely there will be fear from Nigerians.”

Saleh recalled that in Lagos during the 2019 governorship elections, many persons in Igbo dominated areas were not allowed to vote because of the level of intolerance.

He said if Amotekun is allowed to see the light of day, worse may happen.

“We know what happened in Lagos during the last elections. The Igbo were denied voting and the oba even threatened to throw them into the lagoon. So, if you now have a Yoruba ethnic militia, what do you think will happen?” he asked.

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore secretary was, however, cautioned by the Channels anchor, Chamberlain Usoh, who asked him to be civil in his speech.

Saleh, who adamantly insisted that Amotekun was an ethnic militia, wondered if persons of other tribes would be recruited into Amotekun.

He called on the Federal Government not to allow the security outfit to begin operation.

When asked why Sharia Police, Hisbah, and the Civilian Joint Task Force in North-East were allowed to operate in the North-East, Saleh said they were backed by law and were working in concert with the police.

“Hisbah is legal because it is backed by law. That is clearly different from what you have now as Amotekun,” he said.

Reposted from @saharareporters Amotekun Not Illegal, Fani-Kayode Tells Nigerian Government

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the decision by the Nigerian Government to declare Amotekun, the security outfit set up by South-West governors, an illegal organisation.

While reacting to the statement, FFK in a post shared on his Facebook page on Wednesday, wondered why the Hisbah Police in the North-West and Civilian Joint Task Force in the North-East can be seen as legal but Amotekun which is to protect indigenes of the South-West is illegal.

Reposted from @saharareporters #BREAKING: Nigerian Government Declares ‘Operation Amotekun’ Illegal

The Nigerian Government has opposed the establishment of ‘Operation Amotekun’ by South-West states, branding it as an illegal institution.

The government, through the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, said that the group runs contrary to the provisions of the Nigerian laws.

Disturbed by the #Australianfires #Lewishamilton donates $500k to Australian fire service

lewishamilton-1578596790465

Reposted from @lewishamilton – It saddens me deeply to know that over 1 billion animals in Australia died a painful death, no way out, not their fault. My love of animals is no secret and I can’t help but grieve for the defenceless animals thought to have died so far, pushing certain species closer to extinction. I’m lucky enough to visit Australia often and I know first-hand how beautiful the country is. Keep fighting Australia. I’ve spent some time speaking to people in Australia who are working at the heart of this and I’m filled with admiration for everything they are doing.

I implore you to join me in thinking about the impact we are having on our planet. Let’s work together to make small changes, and encourage our family and friends to do the same, so we can help shift the direction we’re going in.

I’m donating $500K to support @wireswildliferescue @wwf_australia and the Rural Fire Services. If you are able and haven’t already, you can donate too. Every little helps.

Let’s set our sights higher for 2020, never backing down! I believe in you and so should you! #letsgo #believeinyourself

#Newzealand sends help, while #Britain sends ‘thoughts and prayers’🙄 to victims of #Australiafire

leonardodicaprio-1578174387658

Talk about the significant item sent. Maybe u am being too extra, but what exactly can these victims do with thoughts and prayers? can thoughts and prayers help them start up life? can they now rebuild what’s lost and save more lives with thoughts and prayers? #damn

from @kensingtonroyal – We continue to be shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the fires that are destroying homes, livelihoods and wildlife across much of Australia.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people and communities who are affected by this devastating event.

We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who have tragically lost their lives, and the brave firefighters who continue to risk their own lives to save the lives of others.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

from @theroyalfamily – Her Majesty The Queen has sent a message of condolence to the Governor General of Australia, Governor of New South Wales, Governor of Queensland, and Governor of Victoria and to all Australians: “I have been deeply saddened to hear of the continued bushfires and their devastating impact across many parts of Australia.
My thanks go out to the emergency services, and those who put their own lives in danger to help communities in need.
Prince Philip and I send our thoughts and prayers to all Australians at this difficult time. Elizabeth R”

from @hilaryduff – The next photo is absolutely gut wrenching. The fires in beautiful Australia are covering the entire country 14.7 million acres have burned. That is an unfathomable number. Half a billion animals GONE. Burned alive. 💔💔 its a strange feeling of guilt to be enjoying my honeymoon in South Africa in a similar landscape where the animals are healthy and free and such devastating circumstances for others occurring at the same moment. Homes burned, people displaced and unfortunately some lives lost. @Matthewkoma and I are coming up with a number that we feel comfortable with to donate and will keep you posted on that. Please do what you can

Sudden Repentance : A #Babyelephant 🐘 gets rescued In Nigeria

instablog9ja-1573328225203

I never thought a day like this would come for me to be making a post about Nigerians having a change of heart and repenting from their incessant consumption of lost and scared animals of both aquatic and terrestrial.🐘🐘🐘🐘🚫🐘🐘🐘🐘🛑

This is what I have been talking about on this blog. Don’t get me wrong, Ofcourse I don’t expect for them to let go / free off every and any animal that they come across in this country, this is majorly due to the high level of Poverty that has left everyone riding on their last survival nerve. 🛑🐘🚫🐘🚫🐘🐘

At this stage people will want to survive before rescuing animals and helping to curb the rate of extinction. But not all eaten animals solves your problem. This baby elepnat might look larger than most other animal babies, but that doesn’t stop it form being a baby elephant.🐘🐘🐘🛑🐘🐘🚫

It is too young for consumption and not right in eyes of some religion. So while we try to always say it is infact hunger that supercedes everyother thing, this is Nigeria and we know that religion is very paramount to us here, so form now on, I will start battling the disturbing rate of animal concumotion in this country with one religious quote or the other.🛑🐘🐘🚫🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘❤️🐘🐘❤️🐘🐘❤️

With that being said, we will like to thank the Edo State people for deciding in unism to save this Abby elephant and take it to a safe haven I think.. 👏👏👏👏👏🐘🐘

And Another one: #Lion escapes from Kano #Zoological garden

images

I don’t speak lion, but I have an idea that as a human, if you are in a place that you are not treated with the respect and and appreciation thag you long for, especially lacking something as simple as  comfort, then your very next plan is to exit that place by executing an escape plan. Often times we hide when we read news like these, of wild animals in captivity escaping and making it into the society.

If these wild animals were receiving the right amount of meals and care they were promised, then most won’t being escaping, and we humans won’t be as scared as we are when they escape.

This is because a hungry lion will always fight to make it out of captivity so as to hunt for their meals, Since survival instinct kicks when they are about to die from hunger. A lion cannot sit there and die from hunger when they have other options. Tearing down their barricade and go hunting is a very normal thing to expect in this situation.

If is it well fed and catered for, then you will have it sleeping, breeding and just having a time of its life in captivity. Every year in Nigeria this news will always be the main topic. Wold animals escaping to be is the best thing. I hope no one gets attacked by it, but I equally hope it doesn’t get found, because you can only properly  look after an animal in your care when you have first of all looked after yourself. A hungry man can’t feed any hungry lion.

With the soaring rate of hunger and poverty in the land, it is only normal that these animals are left to go take care of themselves alike the good Lord intended.

The fright got fast and deep into Kano residents on Saturday when they were informed of the escape from a zoological garden of a lion. Punchnews reported that the news happened at about 9:00pm when the lion was being put back into its cage after they returned national agricultural show in Nassarawa state.

A source at the zoological garden told NAN that effort was being made to recapture the animal which was still within the zoo premises. We hope and pray that it isn’t still in the premises.  Cos to be honest these animals are not treated well. All these zoos need to be checked regularly by an authority.

Alibaba elated as President Buhari directs CBN to cease providing forex for food importation

About time… now if you want to import all your foreign food, source your forex by yasef. Shebi you are in the business to make money.

Once Dangote refinery opens, they should do the same for petroleum products. Find your money. NNPC should not be seen importing sef. It’s a shame. Fix your refineries. How come, all these boys are refining products with drums and firewood, yet we, as a country can’t?

When there was a ban on fruit juice importation, didn’t #5Alive #JustJuice #DonSimon and co leave? Didn’t that help #Chivita to dominate the market?

Let’s increase Electricity to 150,000 megawatts and tell all them car makers… “Wosss wobiii!!!! if you don’t have a plant in Nigeria… Then let Innosson motors take over your market”.

That’s not to say, we will resign ourselves to substandard products o. It just means the businesses get a fighting chance to survive. Without the pressures of foreign backed competition.

How Thailand is Single handedly preventing the extinction of Tigers on Earth — Leonardo Dicaprio

leonardodicaprio-1564519753233

from @leonardodicaprio  – In Thailand’s Huai Kha Khaeng (HKK) Wildlife Sanctuary, tigers are roaring back thanks to a major long-term effort by the government of Thailand, supported by @thewcs. As a result, tiger numbers in the sanctuary have risen dramatically, from 41 in 2010-11 to 66 today – a more than 60 percent increase. In addition, tigers moving beyond boundaries of the sanctuary are providing a foundation for a recovering population across the entire Western Forest Complex of Thailand, with benefits even spilling over across the border into the Taninthayi region of Myanmar. #GlobalTigerDay

In honour of #earthday, The Duke and Duchess share photos to celebrate the planet

-1555956391708

from @sussexroyal – Today is #earthday – an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home.

The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today.

Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including:

Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us.

A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling.

Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our 🌍 are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals.

Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all.

Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber.

We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too.

When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism.

Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but everyday #earthday – #obyorijiblog

Lassa Fever claims 8 lives out of 40 cases in Plateau State.

Lassa-fever-653×365

With some dead in Ondo fir the same case, 8 others have lost their lives to same Lassa fever in Plateau State Nigeria.

  Dr Kuden Kamshak, the Plateau health commissioner, confirmed that eight persons have been  killed by Lassa Fever, after the 40 cases recorded across the state .

Kamshak made the disclosure on Thursday, during the Agenda for Social Behavioural Communication Committee (SBCC), Review Meeting, held in Jos.

He described the situation as worrisome, and declared that government was working round the clock to curb the spread of the disease.

The commissioner, who was represented by Mr Michael Pam, Director of the ministry’s Public Health Department, said that health officers had been deployed o various areas to curtail the situation so as to save lives.

He warned members of the public against the danger of rodents, and cautioned against indiscriminate handshakes.

Earlier, Hajia January Bello, Risk Communicator, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), had said that Lassa Fever was as deadly as Ebola.

Lassa Fever is as deadly as Ebola. It is very devastating, he said.

She advised members of the public to inculcate the habit of personal and environmental hygiene to ward off contact with the disease.

The risk communicator said that there were only four Lassa laboratory centres in Nigeria, while only two hospitals Bingham University Teaching Hospital and Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) treat the disease.

According to her, the laboratory centres are located in Edo, Lagos and Kaduna States, and the FCT Abuja.

Via : puse

My Opinion 

If you know you have rodents activities in your house that you have been ignoring for a while,  due to the fact that you have no time,  or that they have not caused you any harm just yet.

Know that they will be the same to come in contact with your edible and poison it, creating this horrible situation.

The number of over weight rats in my estate,that are on 24 hours duty in the trash cans,  are enough to run the whole Lagos City down with the influenza.

I really hope the spread of this deadly disease will get curbed and stopped.

Extinction: Thousands of Lions, Leopards and Elephants killed by humans summed up.

-1544977485525

@jemu_mwenda – A LIE IN:

KILL TO SAVE
Am only a few years old,but one of the injustices i have found with us humans,is when we place money in the hands of people to get a right to kill an animal,Not for anything else but to satisfy our ego.With all the greed and rapacity with men,it’s channel of benefiting off the blood of innocent beings,Drowned in prejudice and ego the killers carry away the “skulls” don’t assume I don’t know they call it trophy,to hang in their walls that reminds them of their commitment to increase the extinction of species.

The members of a species that are strong,healthy and carry strong genetic traits are targeted,Loads of cash paid and trigger pulled to bring them down,to the hunting firms and it’s affiliates they regard the returns support conservation precisely the communities,something I utterly disagree.Hunting for these reasons is one of the ways to prove mans crookedness and his inability to correctly handle what he was mandated to protect.

The only justice for sport-hunting would be if the quarry itself received the cash and sighed to die to save others,which isn’t possible.Their rights and justice being held in the hands of those who claim to own them.In the 19ths century there where hundreds of rhinos roaming and they thought careful introduction of such a sport would be fun,animals would just be shot at and their ferocity due to the pain of bullets and arrows gave them titles as the “big five”

Now today I and my colleagues wake up everyday to watching these last two Rhinos known of their kind.Ashamedly even as of now this vice of hunting still continues,Having witnessed the dark side of extinction I wish such people could swallow their ego and stop killing a being that can never defend itself.When you pay that money and pull that trigger,you undermine the rights of their existence,apparently their justice will be spoken in ways unheard by us! And it will be fatal.
May the Trophies on their wall hang to ashame and always remind them that they are murderers.
The greatest shame on a man/woman is when one has to kill a voiceless being to quench their ego,how would a human dare to prove ego to an animal literary.
