Buhari Cleared To Visit Terrorists-Torn Regions

President Muhammadu Buhari Has yielded to public outcry for not physically visiting crises troubled areas where terrorists and gunmen have been running rampage and has scheduled visit to Taraba, Yobe, Benue, Rivers and Zamfara state in the next couple of days.



President Muhammadu Buhari was in Kano last weekend,  hours after terrorists attacked a military base in Borno State, killing aid workers military personals which sent the  Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) scampering for safety.


“In view of recent terrorist attacks, criminal activities and communal clashes in some States leading to tragic loss of lives and kidnapping of 110 schoolgirls, President Buhari immediately tasked the Armed Forces and other Security agencies to compile comprehensive reports”, the presidency announced in a statement on Monday, March 5, 2018.


Report coming from the presidency, security Intelligence has given the president the all Clearance to fly.

“Having received and studied the reports, the President has decided to undertake an on-the-spot assessment of the various occurrences and to meet and console the communities affected. From today, March 5, he will visit Taraba, and subsequently Benue, Yobe, Zamfara and Rivers States.
“President Buhari has been receiving daily briefings, and has been in constant touch with the Governors, and has been updated with situation reports.
“The President calls on all Nigerians especially those in the affected areas to cooperate fully with the security agencies to enable them curb the spate of crimes, bring those responsible to justice and prevent further occurrences”.

On New Years’ Day, it would be recalled that cultist gunned down over 22 Nigerians returning from a church service. Killings across Benue, Taraba and Zamfara have all been blamed on raiding herdsmen.

In Yobe, it is no different. The incidence brings to mind the Chibok chronicle as terrorists in the last 15 days, kidnapped 110 schoolgirls of Dapchi Federal Government Science school.

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
