Lagos Records 3,089 Cases Of Sexual, Domestic Violence In 8 MonthsThe Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) says no fewer than 3,089 cases of sexual and domestic violence were reported in the state in the past eight months.The State Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General, Mr Adeniji Kazeem, made the disclosure on Monday in Lagos at a news conference commemorating “The Domestic and Sexual Violence Awareness Month’’.Theme of 2018 is: “Securing the Home against Violence: Everyone’s Responsibility.”Kazeem said that the figure was over 200 per cent increase compared to last 2017 figure of 1,044.The commissioner, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry for Justice, Mrs Funmilola Odunlami, also said that seven people were convicted during the period under review.“From January to August 2018, DSVRT received 3,089 reported cases. This indicates that the number of reports has doubled since 2017 when DVSRT handled a total of 1044 cases for the entire year.“From January till August, 2018, the Team handled 1,037 cases in the office: 939 Domestic Violence cases, 245 Child Abuse, 40 defilement cases 22 rape cases, 13 cases of attempt to commit Rape and Sexual Assault by penetration.“Also, 10 sexual assault by penetration and 48 other cases were also recorded. We have started to see an average of 150 new cases monthly,’’ Kazeem said.He said that there had also been reported cases through the 6820 USSD platform, which was commissioned in 2017, to facilitate the swift reporting of incidents of Domestic Violence, Sexual Violence and Child Abuse.“From Jan. 1, 2018 till date, DSVRT has received 2,052 reports via the 6,820 short-code.“ A total of 718 actual cases were reported. Hence, DSVRT has responded to 357 reports of domestic violence, 195 reports of Sexual Abuse and 166 reports of child abuse, all reported via the 6,820 platform.“What is most exciting about the platform is that it breaks the initial barrier of people not wanting to make a formal report at an office or police station.“We are now able to interact directly with survivors and concerned witnesses and take vital steps in dealing with a case,” he said.Kazeem said that the team had also given a stronger focus on children who had witnessed intimate partner violence in 2018.According to him, a total of 1,187 children have been exposed to domestic violence within the home.“Some of these children have been taken through counselling programmes to ensure they are able to psychologically deal with the events they have witnessed without it having a permanent and negative impact on them,” he said.The attorney-general said that the trends from the data revealed a steady increase in men coming forward to report cases of domestic violence.He said: “As at August 2018, a total of 103 men came forward to report. This implies about 10 per cent of cases handled this year so far were reported by men.“We have also witnessed an increase in reporting of cases via telephone and walk ins from other states, mostly from Ogun, Oyo and have referred such cases to the relevant agencies in the states.’’He said that the Lagos Public Interest Law Partnership (LPILP) provided free legal assistance to 52 of the survivors of the Domestic Violence, ranging from judicial separation, divorce, custody of children, mediation and settlement.Report says that the state government has dedicated every month of September to boosting the campaign against sexual violence-related activities and abuse in homes.
Lady Says Single Moms Are Losers, Reveals They Raise Criminals And Sluts; Do You Agree?A Kenyan lady, Bettern Chero has shown how much she despises single moms in her lengthy post as she urges people to stop glorifying single them pointing out that they raise criminals and sluts.Note; the post is a very lengthy one so seat back and enjoy itSTOP GLORIFYING SINGLE MOTHERS“Before I get to the point of my article, let me state my disclaimer. “I am in no way attacking Single Mothers , myself am a daughter of a single father !!Single moms, excluding widows, are generally losers and they have big possibility to raise criminals and sluts you see around.If you’re a single mom these days you’re praised and heralded for your courage and strength in raising a child all by yourself. It’s brave for a woman to take on the responsibility of being able to deal with a bad man that left her and put her in an unfortunate situation.But like most things, women, for the most part, we chose to put ourselves in this situation. Bad men don’t just magically appear in our lives as women . Bad men who leave women don’t just magically change and decide to leave the woman. And there aren’t only bad men to choose from. There are lots of good men out there too. But most single moms don’t want good men. Most single moms don’t know what a good man is.Let’s get back to basics. Women totally we have the upper hand in choosing our partner. This is why men usually ask women out and not the other way around. This is why a man will have sex with just about any woman and while a woman will not have sex with any man. It’s supply and demand. It is much easier for a woman to pick up a man than for a man to pick up a woman. And that’s fine and natural.You can’t have unplanned children if sex is planned. Every time you have sex you have the risk of getting pregnant as a woman. So there is no such thing as unplanned children. Of course there are exceptions like rape. The vast, vast, vast majority of single moms are not exceptions. They are choices that they made to have sex. So when you have a child as a woman you made the choice to either have the child or to have sex which has a possibility of creating a child. A child is a choice. Every woman knows her circle and she knows her danger days though during those days you feel to have sex ,stop !!It’s not the man’s fault. You chose him. Again, women generally we choose men. Women have the final say on when and when not to have sex. Many men will do anything or say anything just to have sex. That’s where choice comes in. You need to sift through the basics . You need to put your big girl thinking cap on and not believe everything you hear. You need to look past the words and into the character of people. You have way more at risk than the man. You also have way more options than the man. You need to be wise about how you proceed.Single moms always goes after alpha men who are attractive, muscular and good in bed and hope that they can keep the man by giving him more sex and following his every whim. They both use each other to their own advantage and have no desire to create something stable or long term. It is only a matter of time before the man moves onto the next woman and, likewise, it is only a matter of time before the woman moves onto the next man. The cycle repeats itself over and over again because these people do not know what they want. And in not knowing what they want they get what they don’t want. But the absence of choosing what you do want is the choice of what you don’t want. Why do some women choose good men and other women not? They all have the choice. But they don’t all make good choices. You can hate bettern chero yaani daughter of the soil from sacho but truth rems truth .Single mothers shouldn’t be vilified, but they shouldn’t be glorified either. Let me just add to that: I do not think, in any way, shape, or form, that single moms are bad moms. To the contrary, judging by the single moms I know, they actually work harder to try to take care of their kids than most moms do in two parent families. Granted, that’s not because they’re better people; it’s because parenting is a two person job and they’re trying to fill both roles all by their lonesome. It’s extremely tough for them to do that, which I think most single moms would acknowledge.Single mothers tend to struggle more financially and they do miss having a dad around to help with the kids, bring in more money, help soothe their frayed nerves, give second opinions, be a rock, and do all the things that men do to help make a happy home.Of course, single dads have it tough, too, but as a society, we put single moms up on a pedestal and we don’t do the same for single dads. The courts always give the mom preference over the dad, most social media and people lionize single moms, but rarely single dads, and we generally treat moms like they’re the better parent by default. So even though single dads who take care of their kids are as important as single moms and care just as much for their children, they’re not looked at the same way as single moms. So, since single moms are much more common and are treated differently, they’re the ones we should focus on.The problem we have in dealing with single moms in this country is because most of us know single mothers, know how hard they’re working, and wish them well, we do what we can to support them and build them up. That’s very understandable and it undoubtedly does some good. However, because we’re constantly talking about how wonderful single mothers are, we’re also making the option look a lot less scary than it should be to young girls — and that’s a very bad thing for them and for society.The fact of the matter is, no matter how much a single mother loves her child or how diligent she tries to be, it’s unlikely that she’ll be able to do as good a job of raising her child as a mother and father could have done in her place. People hate to hear that, but it’s true. Incidentally, this isn’t me just talking off the top of my head. Statistics bear this out and show that many of the problems we have in our society, when you look a little deeper, are really caused by the number of out-of-wedlock births we have in this country, majority of suicides are individuals from single-parent households. 75 percent of drug abusers are from single mother parenting ,more than half of all youths incarcerated for criminal acts come from single-parent households.There are 2 main reasons as to why most single moms are single:They picked a loser to begin withThey picked a good man and he left cause she scared him awayOf course I’m generalizing, but there is truth to this generalization. Women who are happily married are almost always more wise and mature than single moms. It’s not a luck thing. Women choose their men. And married women choose better. Married women choose men that are more responsible, dependable and committed to a serious, stable relationship.NATURE YOUNG LADIES DO NOT MISLEAD THEM !!There are various factors that will lead to single parenthood such as divorce , wring choices and not knowing what you want and ending with what you don’t want !Parenthood involves two people who share ideas and moral upbringing of children including financial obligations ,but when you find yourself being single parent it means you struggle so much to fulfill this obligations and this the reason we say single parent are hardworking , of coarse yes they have to go extra mile to fulfill this parental obligations!!Inasmuch as we support the single parents as community and friends let us not glorifying the situation as the best thing to extent loudly encouraging our young girls to join the situation !!

AT 58, OUR DEMOCRACY MUST BE SUSTAINEDAs we celebrate our 58th independence anniversary this year, I am of the opinion that, it will be very crucial for us as citizens to look at where we are coming from; where we are; where we ought to be; and, where we are heading. As a matter of frankness, we will only be deceiving ourselves to say that things are moving on smoothly in the country today because we are still very far from where we ought to be. Though they say `Rome was not built in a day`; the underlying fact remains that the Romans successfully built their city to be a positive reference point because of their resoluteness, patriotism, commitment and consistency. We cannot continue the way we are going and expect to build any meaningful legacies for the coming generations. Consequently, this review will delve briefly on the past to understanding the present and, making recommendations for the future.At this point, it is very important to mention that the pivotal factor to the development of any society is ‘good governance’. It is the all essential hinge upon which other factors revolve. Thus, we cannot talk of good governance without having to put a responsive and people oriented system in place. Though, it is not limited to a particular style of government; democracy has been generally accepted to be the most populous and people`s friendly form of government that encourages good governance. Little wonder why Nigerians fought tooth and nail since independence (1960) towards sustaining it despite intermittent military interventions. We will identify some factors bedeviling democracy in our country and the need to do away with them as antidotes to achieving good governance.After the attainment of this Fourth Republic in 1999, one would have expected that our leaders and the citizenry will guide it jealously considering the huge problems that were encountered in the process; unfortunately, that is not the case. It is very disheartening that the country is still finding it difficult to stabilize talk-less of making any concrete efforts to building `its own Rome`; because the people have turned the democratic process to a game of sport without standardized ethical rules and values. As a result, the expected good governance has eluded the people. Consequently, one of the cardinal objectives of democracy (which is the security of lives and properties of the citizenry) has become an illusion in some parts of the country.Just few days ago some lives and properties were wasted `as usual` in Rukubar area of Jos, Plateau State. It is incomprehensible that, in this 21st century where other countries are competing to undo one another in every area of robust achievements and advancements; ours is still at the level of fighting insecurity. It is either we are busy negotiating or even begging boko haram fighters to release our abducted school girls; or, debating on the true identities of the so called `herdsmen` that are maiming, killing and destroying lives and properties with impunity despite the relentless efforts of our gallant security personnel.Presently, the lives of the citizenry are not as secured as those of birds in a poultry farm. Unfortunately, instead coming together to join forces against these ills in our country; our leaders and members of the opposition are always trading blames and they are preoccupied with how they must win all elections in the country without minding the welfare and safety of the masses. This is a far cry from what is attainable in better organized systems where members of the ruling party and the opposition parties always rise above narrow partisan considerations for the national interests. Thus, the moment a government is formed; the legislatures (from different parties) always jettison parochial partisan considerations for the overall interests and good governance of the country and the citizenry in accordance to the laid down principles of the Rule of Law. In our own situation, we are still at the level of threatening to committing suicide instead of having members of a minority party heading the National Assembly.Consequently, rather than ensuring the protection and sustenance of democracy (the surest avenue to achieving good governance); our politicians and the people are still finding it difficult to getting things right. In the immediate past, it was militarization of elections; and today, electoral malpractices have taken more scaring dimensions. It is worrisome that after over 25 years, our leaders have not been able to organized an election that could be compared to the record breaking legacy of the Babangida`s administration. I know that a lot of people will raise eyebrows because of its eventual annulment; that cannot still take away its shine as the freest, fairest and most peaceful election that was conducted in this country. The issue of annulment was a product of an administration that ruled by decree and, there was little or nothing that could have been done constitutionally to overturn the decision. This was due to the fact that the country`s constitution was suspended as at the time and as was the tradition under military rule.The recent declaration of `June 12` as `Democracy Day` is an attestation of a legacy that cannot be denied the IBB`s administration. The best thing for us to do is to be guided by the positives and the shortcomings. Be that as it may, it should be a thing of concern to all well meaning Nigerians that we have not been able to replicate this achievement for over 25 years and still counting. Therefore, it is not surprising that the recently concluded elections in Ekiti and Osun states have generated reservations from different quarters because they are alleged to be enmeshed in malpractices. In as much as I still consider those allegations as hearsays; my advice to the aggrieved political parties and candidates is to remain calm and law abiding. Where there are strong and compelling evidence of wrong doings, go to the Electoral Tribunals/Courts for redress; and, you should be rest assured that our judiciary remains the citadel of dispensing justice as appropriate. Therefore, I wish to say congratulations to those who abides by the rules in the conduct of the exercises; you have done very well and posterity will surely be fair to you. For those that did not play by the rules; be rest assured that the judgment day is near. Always remember that aside from the legal justice; there is also a retributive justice that will surely catch up with all your actions in due course. If you continue to say `It must be this` or `it must be that`; it will surely get to a point where the `Giver of life` will say `this is how I want it to be` So, you should always be very careful and mindful of your words and actions.Also of great concern and immense threat to democracy and good governance are such incidence as invasion of the hallowed chamber by `yet to be identified, prosecuted and convicted persons` to disrupt plenary session and remove the mace; the laying of sieges on the homes of principal officers of NASS as well as blockage of the entrance of NASS by security operatives; the pull-down syndrome and antics of the opposition and enemies of the government; the promotion of tribal and religious bigotry on all available platforms on social media; alleged bias and selected fight against corruption; and alleged intimidation of members of the opposition to mention but a few. These actions are anti progressive in all ramifications and they should never be condoned in our country. Interestingly, a good number of our so called educated elites have remained mum without coming out to condemn all these acts which are capable of undermining our democratic process. They are always shying away from saying it as it is. This fact was recently confirmed by Mr. President when he condemned such people for not saying anything when the previous administrations were mismanaging the affairs of the country. My advice is for them to always be bold enough to say something when they see something for the overall benefit of our country.From the above, you will agree with me that this is the time for all of us to join hands together as committed, selfless and patriotic citizens regardless of political affiliations and standings towards ensuring that our democracy is guided jealously and sustained. This will surely guarantee an all inclusive and indivisible country that is devoid of mutual suspicions and other societal vices. As I have always stated, my writes up are informed by burning patriotic tendencies and hunger to contributing my quota to the development of our country. I always try earnestly to say it as it is; and, as it ought to be for the betterment of all.Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Foundation takes campaign against trafficking, sex abuse to schoolsThe Mariam Ashley Yusuf (MAY) Foundation says it will start sensitisation campaign against human trafficking and sexual abuse to secondary schools in and around the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).Ms Ashley Yusuf, the President of the foundation said this in an interview with the Newsmen on Friday in Abuja.MAY Foundation is a humanitarian NGO that rallies support and lead advocacy for displaced and vulnerable persons as well as the less privileged.The NGO works in collaboration with relevant local and foreign humanitarian organisations as well as relevant government agencies that address social issues, including the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).According to Yusuf, the school campaign is a flagship initiative of the foundation geared toward sensitising teenagers and other vulnerable youths, especially those in secondary schools.“Our society today is being ravaged by the scourge of human trafficking, and at the rate it is going if not checked, it will overwhelm us in the next decade.“When talking about human trafficking and abuse, a lot of focus has always been on adults with little or no attention given to our young people in secondary schools.“They need to be educated on the menace of allowing themselves to be trafficked for whatever reason as they grow up and to avoid becoming victims of sexual abuse.“We are starting the campaign with selected Secondary Schools in Abuja including the Girls Secondary School in Dutse.“Teenage pregnancy is an issue plaguing the lives of young girls across the country, and it is caused by rape in many cases.“These vices strive on ignorance and that is why we going to sensitise these adolescents and equipped them with adequate knowledge for informed decisions,” she said.Yusuf that the school campaign team would include volunteered professional counsellors and officials of NAPTIP.She said that some of the victims of human trafficking, especially youths were actually in desperate search for greener pastures to cities and foreign lands because of harsh economic realities at home.She therefore appealed to government at all levels to make effort toward making life better for the average Nigerian, especially the youths.

Davido Profile: Net Worth, Cars, Background Story And Facts You Don’t KnowToday we present to you a bio profiling of Africa’s biggest artist (Arguably) Davido.And we are not showing you common things you’ve read about him on Wikipedia or Google, but background stories you don’t know, Facts and other things you don’t know that you would like to know.Davido BiographyThe Background Story You Don’t Know Davido was 16 Years Old when he had arrived in Huntsville, a year earlier.His father, Dr. Adedeji Adeleke, a well-known businessman and Seventh-day Adventist in Nigeria with an estimated net worth of over $300 million, dropped him off with his passport, $2,000 cash, and freshman registration documents for Oakwood University, a historically black Christian college.(People often attach the honorific ‘Chief’ to Dr. Adeleke’s name, referring to his wealth and power, largely earned through his founding of Pacific Holdings, a company that deals in steel, oil, gas, and more.)Davido had already spent time in the U.S.—he was born in Atlanta, and sometimes visited in the summer—but much about life in the States was new to him. “That was the first time I had a phone in America.There was unlimited calling. I never saw nothing like that before,” he remembers. “In Nigeria, you gotta pay before you get what you want.”The school roomed him with another international student, a Rwandan track athlete—“I was like, ‘Okay, wow.They just put all the African people together?’”—but he gravitated toward an upstairs neighbor named Jaymo, an American kid whose speakers constantly rattled Davido’s ceiling. “One day, I went to go check what the noise was.I went upstairs, opened the door, and the guy had a full studio in his room,” he says. “I told him that I was trying to do music, too.He asked me, ‘How much do you have to invest in equipment?’ And I said, ‘$2,000.’ He was like, ‘That’s too much.’” They went to Guitar Center with $500.From then on, Davido spent most of his time making beats and recording vocal references to send to a cousin in Lagos, a fellow musician with a trove of industry contacts.His grades slipped, and after three semesters, he dropped out and left town without telling his father.First he went to Atlanta, where he used his older brother’s ID to get into clubs, and funneled the money Chief Adeleke sent for school and living expenses toward drinks and motels.Later, he threw out his SIM card and hopped on a plane London, where he went MIA for several months as he shifted his focus from production to vocals.“There was no Snapchat, no Instagram. There was barely Twitter,” he says. “I just went off the radar.”Chief Adeleke, meanwhile, had been on the hunt for his son. When Davido finally returned to Lagos in 2011, with new tattoos and piercings, his father had him apprehended by police officers at the airport.Having failed to bring home the business management degree he’d been sent to America to complete, Davido reached a compromise with his father: he, still a teenager, would attend a private university two hours north of the city.His music dreams would be sidelined until he had honored his family by graduating. Davido returned to school, but often snuck out of his dorm room to hobnob at industry parties and blew off exams to record.Work on Davido’s debut studio album, Omo Baba Olowo, began in 2011. On May 7, 2011, Davido produced and released his first musical recording “Back When”.The song served as the album’s lead single and received frequent airplay.The music video for the single, uploaded onto YouTube on May 9, 2011, was shot and directed in Nigeria by Clarence Peters.

He is always heavily involved with the production of his hit songs.⇒ He initially used to backup for Sina Rambo who was a rising rapper in the US then.

Nigeria Overtakes India In Extreme Poverty RankingNigeria has overtaken India as the country with the largest number of people living in extreme poverty, with an estimated 87 million Nigerians, or around half of the country’s population, thought to be living on less than $1.90 a day.The findings, based on a projection by the World Poverty Clock and compiled by Brookings Institute, show that more than 643 million people across the world live in extreme poverty, with Africans accounting for about two-thirds of the total number.In Nigeria, as with other countries on the continent, that figure is projected to rise. “By the end of 2018 in Africa as a whole, there will probably be about 3.2 million more people living in extreme poverty than there are today,” the researchers write.Despite being the largest oil producer in Africa, Nigeria has struggled to translate its resource wealth into rising living standards.A slump in oil prices and a sharp fall in oil production saw the country’s economy slide into recession in 2016.A recent rise in oil prices has helped to spur the country’s economic recovery.Addressing the situation in March this year, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said that although growth was again beginning to rise, “more needs to be done to reduce unemployment and address poverty.”But while the numbers of Nigerians falling into extreme poverty grows by roughly six people every minute, poverty in India continues to decrease.At present, an estimated 5.3% of Indians or 71.5 million people, live below the poverty line.Confined to Africa The researchers note that 14 out of 18 countries where poverty is rising are in Africa, adding that if current rates persist, 90% of the world’s poorest will be living on the continent by 2030.Bangladesh and Indonesia are the only other non-African nations to feature among the list of 10 worst affected countries, with an estimated 17 million and 14.2 million people living in extreme poverty, respectively.Other nations in Africa to feature on the list of 10 worst affected countries, include the Democratic Republic of Congo, with 60 million people; Ethiopia with 23.9 million people; Tanzania with 19.9 million.Mozambique, with 17.8 million people; Kenya, with 14.7 million people; and Uganda, with 14.2 million.Countries falling behind Data compiled by the World Poverty Clock was drawn from both household surveys and new projections on country economic growth from the International Monetary Funds’ World Economic Outlook.Researchers noted that between January 1, 2016 and July 2018, the world has seen about 83 million people escape extreme poverty, owing in part to the introduction of internationally agreed UN Sustainable Development Goals, intended to “end poverty” by 2030.“The task of ending extreme poverty by 2030 is becoming inexorably harder because we are running out of time. We should celebrate our achievements, but increasingly sound the alarm that not enough is being done, especially in Africa,” the researchers say.FROM; CNN
11 safety tips to adopt against kidnapping on south-west roadsTravelling on Nigerian roads have become more dangerous in recent times because of the activities of kidnappers and abductors. And the southwest roads are no different.As reported, bandits, including foreigners, have invaded southwest forests, where they have apparently set up temporary camps.From these camps, they intermittently storm the highways and kidnap travellers, whom they hold and only release in exchange for ransoms.They terrorise, defile and sometimes kill their victims.In view of this, here are 11 tips to save you from kidnapping on the southwest roads:1. Be vigilant at all times and review your security measures regularly.2. As much as possible, avoid travelling at night. Limit travel after dark outside city centres as far as possible; and avoid quiet and poorly lit roads.3. Take particular care if you’re visiting crowded public places or attending events which attract large crowds. Criminals often use these situations as cover for robbery and kidnapping.4. High-profile Nigerians are frequently targeted; so, be discreet in the kinds of gadgets you display in your car when on the road.5. Be mindful of curfews or restrictions that may be imposed on the movement of vehicles and persons, and don’t attempt to break any of them.6. Avoid carrying large amounts of cash and don’t wear valuable watches, jewellery or items of sentimental value that could attract undue attention to you.7. Be particularly vigilant when sitting in traffic jams or at traffic lights. Keep car windows up and doors locked, and make sure valuables are out of sight.8. If you feel your vehicle is being followed, drive to the nearest place of safety (e.g. the nearest police station).9. You should take particular care when driving outside cities, and consider travelling in convoy.10. If you are travelling by public transport, board in designated motor parks, rather than standing by the road to solicit free ride from strangers, or taking cheaper alternative that could prove unwise.11. If you’re driving your own car, don’t pick up people at random.(Source: Gov.UK)
