PROJECTS SUPPORT LIGHTING UP OF AFRICA

Excerpts of news mention on Breakbulk Newspaper:

The rhetoric about electrifying Africa is finally being actioned into tangible and achievable goals. In West Africa, where some 180 million people do not have access to electricity, an abundance of natural resources is driving a somewhat large portfolio of renewable energy projects.

The clean energy wave rippling across West Africa is underscored by reinvigorated interest from the African Development Bank, or AfDB, and the Africa Progress Panel, or APP, in ensuring the continent addresses its energy crisis, for crisis it is.

Take Nigeria for example. A recent survey by NOIPolls revealed that 61 percent of small and medium-sized enterprises in the country spend Nigerian Naira500-1000 (US1.4-2.8 cents) daily on fuel, with as much as 85 percent of micro and small businesses reliant on generators for power. Ghana, in 2015, experienced 159 days without power. Ghanaians call it Dumsor, translating into “off and on,” which typifies the persistent, irregular and unpredictable power outages experienced.

Our people send patients abroad for organ harvesting ignorantly

Excerpts of news mention on Punch Newspaper:

In this interview with ENIOLA AKINKUOTU, the President of the Nigerian Medical Association, Prof. Mike Ogirima, speaks about the challenges in the health sector

The Federal Government is considering barring doctors in the public sector from having private practice because the 1999 Constitution does not allow anyone to do private practice apart from farming. What is the NMA’s position on this?

The NMA will support every action that will improve the health system. We will go against any doctor that is using the government’s hours to do his business and I am sure that other professions, whether in the health sector or in any other areas, should do the same. You cannot rob Paul to pay Peter. So, give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.
