Covid-19 Presents Opportunity to Reset Africa — Elumelu

pulsenigeria247-1589977833081

With all the theory coming from every smart man, predictions and conclusions soaring high, it is only expected to hear from a Nigerian. On that note, the Chairman of the United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, Tony Elumelu, has stated that the Coronavirus Pandemic currently ravaging the world presents an opportunity to reset the African continent so that Africans can be empowered to become more productive and self reliant.

With digital now becoming more of virtual and work from home, it is a very well know fact that Africa wasn’t ready for this fast adjustment for work, and Covid9 forced them into it, and the last couple of months have been one for transformation for the continent.

He said this today at the high-level Roundtable discussions made up of African leaders including Dr. Ngozi Okonjo – Iweala, the Special Envoy of the African Union on Covid-19 and Tidjane Thiam who is also a Covid-19 Special Envoy responsible for mobilising international economic support for Africa.

During the session titled ‘Resilient World: An African call for a new world order’, Elumelu stated “I see this pandemic as an opportunity to reset Africa.’ Whilst pointing out that Africa as a continent has all it takes to emerge into a strong digital economy, the UBA Group Chairman advocated a martial plan that will galvanise the entire continent and make Africa less dependent on the ‘circularity of debt’ from developed nations, which according to him, has been a major setback for decades.
He said, “I feel that as we engage the rest of the world in providing relief, we need to look for a more fundamental solution to Africa’s challenges. I have often argued for a martial plan overtime. We need to mobilise everyone. If we have a martial plan that mobilises resources to address particular issues, then we can mitigate against this constant begging for assistance.”

Olori shuts down rumours that her marriage to Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has ended

There have been strange rumours and unfounded news making rounds on social media in recent times.I want all believers of good news to know that, it is all lies and a picture of how the peddlers of the evil news would have loved our love story to turn out. I would have loved to maintain silence, however, due to concerns being expressed by well meaning people something has to be said. Now, the gospel truth is that I have been busy with ministry off the social media space and you'd all agree with me that with the ongoing pandemic which suddenly sprung up on all of us, only means more work needs to be done. I can't sit still (as nobody privileged enough should) and this isn't a time for social media presence but a time that calls for solemnity. Hence my break from what people now call normal. Finally, as duty will have me do, I have been in and out of the palace doing Gods bidding.With all being said, I am compelled to ask the following questions : Why can't people verify that which is the truth ? Why do people believe more in falsehood and negativity? Well, the bible has something to say about them in Psalm 2:1-12. Now i say to you all, please disregard and jettison every fake and malicious news about me and my husband (Ooni Adeyeye Babatunde Enitan Ogunwusi) for ours is a love no earthly force is strong enough to break,we are very fine and healthy I will leave you with this "please be comforted and know that boredom is a killer and people do unimaginable things when they are" Peace and love always

Elder statesman TY Danjuma has taken time out in this Coronavirus era to drop his the president’s hood to speak on private matters bothering him.

In this era of prohibited courtesy visit, one would wonder what exactly is the reason for the visit to the first man of the country.

Could it be a condolence visit to the president following the recent deaths occuring in his home time, office, and family?

#AfricanHustle : Madagascar charges Nigeria a whopping €170,000 for her new Covid19 herbal solution

I’m indeed a prophet! So this shit was about money all along?🙄 – With one Covid19 Death now recorded in Madagascar, Some will argue that malaria drugs heal malaria, yet people still die. – Well, there is a world of difference between Malaria medications and this Madagascar potion. Malaria drugs are put to rigorous peer review tests in controlled environments before they are released as ‘cures’ and they definitely don’t have success rates of 40.2% like Madagascar has, where they have so far cured only 114 out of their 183 confirmed cases. – Charging N72 million Naira for an untested, unverified, AGBO that has a 40% success rate is CRIMINAL! Trying to sell it while exploiting the sentiments and emotions of pan Africanism is subhuman! – I recommend that we return the nonsense back to them and invest the €170,000 in our own local scientist, by giving them grants to enable them find a suitable Nigerian cure or vaccine! ~FRZ – #DaddyFreeze #FreeTheSheeple #ThisYearGoRuggedO – #RepostBy @instablog9ja: "Madagascar asks Nigeria to pay N78.2m for COVID-19 herbal remedy . . Republic of Madagascar has asked Nigeria to pay 170,000 Euros (N78.2m) for the COVID-19 herbal remedy sent to the country, TheNation reports. . . “For our consignments in Guinea Bissau, Madagascar has asked Nigeria to pay over €170,000. We have received the invoice because the African country has made us to realise that the drugs are not being given out free. . . “We are being asked to pay for the drugs yet to be validated. Since the AU directed the supply of the drugs to African countries, we may have no choice than to pay for it. . . This payment may, however, be one-off because mass importation of the drugs from Madagascar will not be cost effective. By the time we take into account the cost of freight, the amount will be too high,” a source told the Nation."

Chloexhalle set to drop their Album June 5th

Screenshot_20200517-221116
View this post on Instagram

Yes when I met them , they were Chloe and Halle , Chloe x Halle is their rebrand name and a wise change at that . Before the Atlanta natives hit YouTube with their cover to “Best Thing I Never had”, the girls made their debut in acting in Tyler Perry films and the big screen . Chloe played a young Lily ( Beyoncé ) in The fighting temptations as well as a small role in “Meet the browns” and Halle made an appearance as Jazmine’s friend in Meet the Payne’s. Between Disney’s next Big thing and their YouTube covers and posted performances it was easy to tell that the talent these girls possessed was something special. When I met Chloe and Halle , their mother made them change shirts because they looked “too grown” , they blanked out every bad word in the songs they covered and adorably rearranged phrases to keep their wholesome image. Their bloopers were recorded and it was easy to distinguish their personalities and their single styles that are so different yet so beautifully blended when they come together. When I met Sky and Jazz I was a little taken aback by their growth . They weren’t little girls anymore, and if their uncensored language didn’t prove it their new style did. Watching them go from “twins”that wore Similar outfits and spoke at the same time to grown women with a message and an undeniable sex appeal to match their mature voices has been an absolute joy. I remember voting for them on Disney and jumping up and down when Beyoncé signed them. Now I’m clapping with their “Grown-ish” characters when they read someone , watching in awe as their appearances go from World Tours to the Super Bowl , waiting for Halle to fill the role of Ariel and Chloe’s acting career. Wether you’ve been with them from the beginning ( and I mean when their locs were barely long enough to make a bob 😂) and Chloe’s exaggerated singing faces or you’ve been mesmerized by their recent song covers and their tv characters, be grateful you’ve gotten a front seat to absolute Black girl magic 💕Cant wait to see what the future holds for the Bailey “twins”

#Awkward: Madagascar records her first Covid19 death

Madagascar’s COVID-19 cure drugs sent to Nigeria The drug is for prevention and cure of Coronavirus. Nigeria’s consignment has been sent to Equatorial Guinea from where it will be airlifted to Abuja. . . For ease of transportation, African countries were divided into zones leading to the freighting of Nigeria’s consignments to Equatorial Guinea. Nigeria’s COVID-19 positive tally moved to 4,399 last night with 248 new cases announced by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC). Lagos recorded 81 cases, followed by Jigawa State 35 and Borno 26 cases to top the chart. Kano recorded 26 cases, followed by Bauchi with 20 cases. There is pressure on the Federal Government by different medical and scientific organizations to allow the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD) and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to subject the drug to further analysis. Some others are pushing for clinical trial of Covid Organics before being used in the country. The Federal Government was yet to take a position as of weekend because the AU has mandated its Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) to review the scientific data gathered so far on the safety and efficacy of the COVID Organics. The World Health Organisation (WHO) last week insisted that the efficacy of the drug was unproven. Also, as part of steps to contain COVID-19, the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has started negotiating with the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) on how to source volunteer doctors and health workers. The health workers will help to assist ravaged states in the North-West and North-East especially, Kano, Katsina, Jigawa, Bauchi, Yobe and Borno states. The Chairman of NGF, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, is coordinating the talks with the two professional associations with juicy welfare package. . . Click the link in bio to read further.

Aquatic Disaster: Fishermen fishing more plastics than fish – Reno Omokri

The impact used to be in the TV and yet we still managed to find fishes to eat. But now that the impact has gotten to the actual reality, how do we go from getting all the fishes we need to feed and survive, to getting plastics that we created by own hands, and is now coming to get to us. This is sad, dangerous, and scary.
