Mamora escaped death on Lagos waterways

Mamora escaped death on Lagos waterways

November 4, 2018, 
THE Managing Director of the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA), Sen Olorunibe Mamora, last Tuesday escaped death on Lagos inland waterways by whiskers when a floating log of wood hit the boat carrying him and his entourage when he came to inspect the Lagos
facilities of the agency.
According to a staff of the agency who begged not to have his name in print, “It was a close shave with death as the log of wood, which was floating underwater, hit our boat which the MD was also on board.
“The incident occurred shortly, after inspecting the NIWA CMS office facility, Apapa, Ijora, Oyingbo jetties and the boat was heading towards Osborne foreshore to also inspect Texas connection ferries.
“By the time we got to Texas jetty, water was already tricking in into the boat. I was already praying inside because I am still taking my swimming lessons.
After inspecting Texas connection ferry terminal, the NIWA team then called for a change of boat to continue with the facility tour of other jetties across the State, as water inside the boat was already disturbing,” Our source revealed.
Confirming the near mishap, the Technical Adviser to the NIWA MD, Engr. Emmanuel Ilori said the wreck was an underwater wreck that was under the water.
He said that the present management of the authority is seriously concerned about safety and security in the nation’s inland waterways.
In the words of Ilori: “Safety and security of inland waterways is the priority of the present management of NIWA. it is not the only issue of wrecks removal, but causes of the wreck, and that is what we will be looking at fundamentally. So, to prevent boat mishap on the inland waterways and to be sure that when wrecks are removed they are not dumped into another place where it will become another hazard.”
Ilori who is also the Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Shipowners Association (NISA) said the authority would also survey under the water and place danger signs on the area where there are wrecks.
“What we are looking at is to survey the wrecks. It is not only wrecks that we see on the surface alone because we also have wrecks under the water and these are underwater issues. That is why we say when people remove wrecks,  we want to understand how they will dispose off the wrecks so it won’t cause another hazard elsewhere.
“Don’t forget that the boat the MD was inside going over the wreck, thereby unsettling the boat. The primary thing is to survey the water and identify whatever it is so that we ask boat operators to avoid the area. Wrecks removal is not the immediate solution but to identify where the wrecks are and begin to remove them and know how to dispose.  Also,  identify where the wrecks are and mark them so that people are aware of where the danger lies and avoid it.”
On the entourage of the MD were the Area Manager, Lagos office of NIWA, Muazu Sambo, the one-time acting Managing Director, NIWA, Barr Danladi Ibrahim, Journalists, and several others who joined the MD in the tour of facilities of the authority.
Recall that over the years, there have been calls for the removal of wrecks on the inland waterways which contributes to mishaps on the waterways.
In August 2018, a boat travelling from CMS to Ikorodu had capsized, claiming five lives.
The August event came two months after a May 25 incident in which 24 passengers escaped death when two boats collided and capsized in the Ojo area of the state. The accident occurred at 7:45 pm close to the Ojo Terminal.
Twelve passengers were not as lucky on August 20, 2017. They all died in another boat accident in the Ilashe area of
the state. It was gathered that the boat capsized shortly after leaving an unauthorised jetty.
Similarly, a police sergeant, Mary Adesoba, attached to the Zone 2 Police Command, Onikan, Lagos, lost her life on October 10, 2017, after a boat capsized on the Third Mainland Bridge waterways.
The boat was en route to Ebute-Ero from Ikorodu when the mishap happened around 10 am when it hit a submerged object.
The boat that claimed Adesoba, was conveying 21 passengers. Other passengers were rescued by the Marine Police.
Also, on May 25, 2016, a woman died after a commercial boat en route to Victoria Island, Lagos, from Ikorodu ran into a log of wood and capsized. Twenty-seven other passengers on board the speedboat escaped death with varying degrees of injuries.- Nigerian Tribune

See Little girl, 2,  carrying her own severed head at Halloween

Two-year-old Maya Hwang wore the epic costume which was designed by her mother, Krystel

A toddler has won the year's best Halloween costume - with the creepiest costume ever.
Two-year-old Maya Hwang wore the epic costume which was designed by her mother, Krystel.
The stay-at-home mum spent two days making the costume, which makes it look like the child is carrying her own severed head.
The floral dress has an opening in the chest which allows Maya's head to poke through.
An extension on the back of the dress creates the appearance of a ghoul whose head has been chopped off.
Older sister Charlie, aged six, then walks alongside her while holding a knife - and of course an empty pumpkin basket to collect trick-or-treat gifts.
Little Maya won a competition at a school in Paraaaque City, Philippines, for the best costume.

Dads may soon be able to breastfeed their newborn babies with first ever 'chestfeeding kit'

Some dads feel like a 'spare part' when their baby is born (stock photo)

The 'chestfeeding kit' containing hormones, a pump and compression vest

Marie-Claire hopes it could be available in five years, but it would need to undergo lots of testing

One side effect of the kit is that men are likely to grow man boobs 

Dads may soon be able to breastfeed their newborn babies with first ever 'chestfeeding kit'

A London university student believes they've come up with a way for dads to breastfeed their baby 
 When it comes to having babies, it's the woman who has to do all the hard work.
She's got to grow a human inside her for nine months, push the infant out of her body and then make milk to nourish the little one.                                                                  All while her partner watches.
But soon there may be a new way for the man to get more involved in the process and it's all down to a kit created by a university student from London.
Marie-Claire Springham, a product design student at Central Saint Martin's, is in the process of making a 'chestfeeding kit'.
The idea behind the product is for dads to be able to help mums who are struggling to breastfeed their newborns.
Still in the conception stage, the kit is yet to be tested, but contains a cocktail of hormones that the man would take while his partner is pregnant, in order to "grow milk ducts".
The main hormone is progestin, a form of the female sex hormone progesterone, which helps to stimulate production of milk-producing glands.
This would be followed by a round of domperidone which is often given to mums who are experiencing difficulties with breastfeeding as it encourages the production of prolactin, a hormone which tells the woman's body to produce milk.
However there is one major possible side effect to taking the female hormones.
Which is that the man could grow 'moobs' or man boobs, up to a b cup until they stop taking the hormones.
As well as the different hormones, the chestfeeding kit also contains a pump and a compression vest, which is very similar to a maternity bra.
Marie-Claire hopes her idea will help to stop fathers from feeling left out when raising their baby and believes the kit could be available in five years time.
But its possible that the product may never see the light of day, as doctors have urged caution and warned that there's no proof men can even grow milk ducts.

They're also not sure what impact the hormones will have on the male body and instead suggested other ways men could feel more included in the first few month of a baby's life, such as changing them and helping with bath time.
Speaking to The Sun Online, the 24-year-old student said: "I was trying to create an empathy tool, something that could really help when a mum was struggling to breastfeed and could help a dad be of practical use.
"Those two drugs put together create three of the four hormones necessary for a man to produce milk.
"The last one is oxytocin which is what triggers the 'let down reflex' and that's naturally produced when a man or a woman holds their child."
She went on to explain how she developed the pump to assist the 'let down reflex' and added that she believes it will take a full nine months for a man to prepare his breast tissue for breastfeeding.
Her design for the kit recently won an award at the Meaning-Centred Design Awards.
However in order to make the product available for purchase, it would need to be rigorously tested as it is not known how much milk a man could produce, or if it would even be nutritious for the baby.

The Olubadan of Ibadanland Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji Aje Ogunguniso has been restrained from installing another Mogaji for Jagun Elesin Merindinlogun compound to replace the substantive Mogaji Joseph Oluwole Olatubosun.

” I also heard that some businessmen who are ibadan indigenes are also in support of this man to alter the history, tradition and culture of the land.” he said

Wale Ojo Lanre Inside the Study Room of Late President Félix Houphouët-Boigny of Cote DÍvoire

Wale Ojo Lanre Inside the Study Room of Late President Félix Houphouët-Boigny of Cote DÍvoire
(French pronunciation: [feliks ufwɛt bwaɲi] or [feliks ufwɛ bwaɲi];[1][2] 18 October 1905 – 7 December 1993), affectionately called Papa Houphouët or Le Vieux (The Old One), was the first President of Côte d'Ivoire (1960 to 1993), serving for more than three decades until his death. A tribal chief, he worked as a medical aide, union leader, and planter before being elected to the French Parliament. He served in several ministerial positions within the French government before leading Côte d'Ivoire following independence in 1960. Throughout his life, he played a significant role in politics and the decolonization of Africa.
Under Houphouët-Boigny's politically moderate leadership, Côte d'Ivoire prospered economically. This success, uncommon in poverty-ridden West Africa, became known as the "Ivorian miracle" and was due to a combination of sound planning, the maintenance of strong ties with the West (particularly France), and development of the country's significant coffee and cocoa industries. However, the exploitation of the agricultural sector caused difficulties in 1980, after a sharp drop in the prices of coffee and cocoa.
Throughout his presidency, Houphouët-Boigny maintained a close relationship with France, a policy known as Françafrique, and he built a close friendship with Jacques Foccart, the chief adviser on African policy in the de Gaulle and Pompidou governments. He aided the conspirators who ousted Kwame Nkrumah from power in 1966, took part in the coup against Mathieu Kérékou in 1977, and was suspected of involvement in the 1987 coup that removed Thomas Sankara from power in Burkina Faso. Houphouët-Boigny maintained a strong anti-communist foreign policy, which resulted in, among other things, severing diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union in 1969 (after first establishing relations in 1967) and refusing to recognise the People's Republic of China until 1983. He provided assistance to UNITA, a United States-supported, anti-communist rebel movement in Angola. In 1986 he re-established relations with the Soviet Union, shortly before the fall of its confederation.
In the West, Houphouët-Boigny was commonly known as the "Sage of Africa" or the "Grand Old Man of Africa". Houphouët-Boigny moved the country's capital from Abidjan to his hometown of Yamoussoukro and built the world's largest church there, the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro, at a cost of US$300 million. At the time of his death, he was the longest-serving leader in Africa's history and the third longest-serving leader in the world, after Fidel Castro of Cuba and Kim Il-sung of North Korea. In 1989, UNESCO created the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize for the "safeguarding, maintaining and seeking of peace". After his death, conditions in Côte d'Ivoire quickly deteriorated. From 1994 until 2002, there were a number of coups d'état, a currency devaluation, an economic recession, and, beginning in 2002, a civil war.

Corruption is fighting Kemi Adeosun By Wale ojo Lanre

Corruption is fighting  Kemi Adeosun
Wale ojo Lanre
I don't join the multitude to do evil
It is clear that Kemi must have stepped on toes of the thieves 
She must have offended some political male chauvinists
Who would have orchestrated this 'forged NYSC exemption Certificate "
Forged exemption certificate?
Who detected this?
Which media again?
Well, we should be clinical
We should be careful in what we believe
As we may get to know very soon
or soonest
That it is a lie
A blatant lie
Contorted to blackmail this young lady
who is performing well
And the source may come out again
To tell the world
That they were misguided
By those who hate the advancement of Nigeria
To a greater height
Under the PMB administration
This period will soon be passed away
And Nigerians would know
That the who saga of forged 'exemption NYSC certificate
Of Kemi Adeosun
was a ruse.
A calculated blackmailing content
To distract the lady, tarnish her reputation
And score a goal off PMB
But, God is for the Truth.
And a convoluted mind - Femi Fani Kayode's ranting
Is it not an embarrassment and a shame to the nation that one Femi Fani Kayode will open his mouth wide and criticize her . This is FFK with the deluge of fraudulent cases on his neck?.
Shamefully it is a Nigeria ........
Where idiots become the nobles
where those whose are suffering from a relapse of insanity
are regarded as reformers
It is a country when hooliganism and brigandage are virtues
It is a Nigeria where idiots hold the sway.
However, God will take control of Nigeria

Travel Practitioners’ Identity Card Stirs Controversy As Wale Ojo - Lanre takes NANTA to court By Omolola Itayemi Thisday

Travel Practitioners’ Identity Card Stirs Controversy
As Wale Ojo - Lanre takes NANTA to court
By Omolola Itayemi

Cards are usually associated with games and gambling. Game cards have different values – Ace of clubs, Joker in a pack, Queen of hearts, the Four Aces and the rest. You win or lose depending on how you play. And so it seems that some practitioners in the travel and tourism industry have played a card – a travel practitioners’ card. But some fellow travellers are not playing. They are contesting the draw. Did the National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies play a good card? Omolola Itayemi writes
Last Tuesday, Nigerian travel agents celebrated what was considered a milestone with the introduction of its identity card called Nigerian Travel Practitioners’ Identity Card (NTPIC) under the leadership of Bankole Bernard, the current president of National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies (NANTA).
Canapés, cocktails, good music and the right ambience characterised the launch. All present were ecstatic about it and all seemed very well.

But the celebration was hardly over when the group was slammed with a suit. NANTA was given seven days to withdraw the purported ID card.
In a letter served on Bankole, NANTA President by Yinka Olujimi and Company, Legal Practitioners, with the headline ‘Illegal Introduction of a Purported Nigerian Travel Practitioners Identification Card’, Mr. Wale Ojo- Lanre, a tourism stakeholder, averred that the inauguration of such a scheme was not only Ultra Vires, but outside the purview of the objectives of the association.
Ojo-Lanre pointed out that Bankole claimed during the inauguration of the scheme that his action was in collaboration with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), a corporate entity, which has no statutory mandate to venture into the production and issuance of such a document.
Bernard, on the other hand, believes the travel identity card is not misleading to other industry practitioners.
In an interview with this correspondent, he explained the decision of NANTA to name the card as such: “NANTA is set up by an act and affiliated with NCAA. Travel is part of the chain of tourism but tourism is not part of the chain of travel. Do any of the people understand how we travel agents operate our business? Travel is the only industry that is under two ministries – Aviation and Tourism. How many of them have any relationships with IATA? Which other associations write tickets, tell me? I maintain, it is not illegal to use Travel Practitioners because we use ‘Travel’ in the formation of the agency name NANTA and we need identity cards that are international in nature. It’s to help identify genuine members and also to practical cub the menace of individuals that parade themselves as travel agents who end up defrauding innocent Nigerians.
Let me explain further, this card is only for travel agents and consultants.”
Pelu Awofeso, an award-winning travel and tourism writer and publisher of Waka-about is of the opinion that the card was done in good faith: “I was privileged to attend some NANTA meetings where the ID card was discussed and its importance emphasised over and over. I was impressed that the body was taking a bold step to check 419 travel agents who open shop, fleece unsuspecting customers and close shop shortly after.
The leadership cited many instances of corrupt practitioners running into millions of Naira. But when what was solely meant to be a strictly NANTA ID for genuine practitioners morphed into a wholesale ID for the travel industry in Nigeria beats me. But again, we must recognise the fact that the project initiators had noble intentions. They just need to re-calibrate and all should be well.”

How To Pack Light When Travelling With Kids

How To Pack Light When Travelling With Kids
When travelling with kids, there is a very high possibility that you are going to overpack. This is because you have to pack for your kids. This should not always be the case since you can pack light regardless of the number of kids or people you are travelling with. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency highlights ways you can pack light when on vacation with your kids.
Make a minimal list of what you need
To pack light with kids, without leaving anything important behind, always start by making a list of travel essentials. This should be a minimal list that answers the question: what do I absolutely need on this trip?  Examples of what should be on the list include tickets, documents, prescription medicines and money.
Be realistic about what they will/will not wear
Once you have your list of essentials, you can now move on to clothes. Here, you start with the essentials like a swimsuit for a beach family vacation or coat for cold destinations. Afterwards, select clothes they will wear daily. You can do this based on the number of days you are spending at your destination.
Save a special toy just for your trips
You can keep special toy(s) just for your trip. Endeavour to ensure that it is small and easy to use, with little or no adult help needed. Books and drawing materials work well.
Embrace laundry
When you have kids, you will inevitably find yourself washing their clothes more often than you would your own. Some travellers who do not want to wash tend to pack more clothes. However, if you are serious about packing light, be ready to do some laundry while travelling.
