"Don’t Be cowards" – Defence Minister Tells Nigerians to Stand and Face The Bandits

Nigeria Defence Minister Maj- Gen. Bashir Magashi, has asked Nigerians not to be cowards and confront bandits whenever they come attacking their communities.

Magashi said this on Wednesday, February 17 while speaking with newsmen after the screening of the service chiefs by members of the House of Representatives.

Reacting to the abduction of 27 students of the Government Science College, Kagara in Niger state, Magashi said;

”Is it (security issue) the responsibility of the military alone? We shouldn’t be cowards. It is the responsibility of everybody to be alert and ensure safety when necessary. We shouldn’t be cowards. Sometimes bandits come with about three rounds of ammunition and when they fire shots everybody will run. In our younger days, we stand to fight any form of aggression.

Why should people run away from minor, minor aggressions?

We should stand and face them. If these people know that the people have the competence and capability to defend themselves, they will run away”

AMERICA’s POWER OUTAGE: Texas Residents Line-Up To Fetch Water From Borehole (See Photos & Video)

Residents of Texas have been captured lining up to fetch water amid days of blackout in the state caused by failure in natural gas operations.

Operators revealed that the bulk of the power loss in Texas came from natural gas suppliers as pipelines froze, making it difficult for plants to get the fuel they needed.

Electricity is normally used to pump water into the homes of residents but since the outage, many have resorted to seeking alternative ways of accessing their daily needs.

In a video shared on Twitter by abc reporter, Erica Simon, citizens could be seen in a queue holding buckets and dispenser containers as they fetched water from a borehole tap.

Sharing the video, Erica wrote;

“This is not a third world country. This is Houston, Texas. I spotted a line of people filing up buckets of water from a spicket at Haden Park. Why? Millions either have no water or are under a Boil Water Advisory.”

“Yes everyone, I’m now aware that it’s spelled spigot. Smiling face with smiling eyes”

Power Grid Collapses, Plunges Lagos, Others Into Darkness

The nation’s power grid suffered its first collapse this year on Wednesday, plunging parts of the country into a blackout.

Two of the electricity distribution companies in the country, Ikeja Electric Plc and Eko Electricity Distribution Company Plc, disclosed this in messages to their customers through their Twitter handles on Wednesday.

It said, “This is to inform you that we experienced a system collapse at 13:58hrs today and this affected all customers on the IE network. However, we are pleased to confirm that supply has been restored to Alimosho, Ogba, and Alausa transmission stations at 14:47hrs.

“Please note that gradual restoration to other areas is currently ongoing. Thank you for your understanding.”

EKEDC said, “There has been a partial system collapse on the national grid interrupting supply to most areas within our network. We are gathering updates on the situation and will provide them as available.

“For now, please be assured that all stakeholders are working hard to make sure this is resolved. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.”

The grid, which is being managed by government-owned Transmission Company of Nigeria, has continued to suffer system collapse over the years amid a lack of spinning reserve that is meant to forestall such occurrences.

Spinning reserve is the generation capacity that is online but unloaded and that can respond within 10 minutes to compensate for generation or transmission outages.

Although five power stations are meant to provide spinning reserves, none of them currently have actual reserve.

The power stations are Egbin, Delta, Olorunsogo NIPP, Geregu NIPP and Omotosho NIPP.

Total power generation in the country stood at 4,499.90 megawatts as of 6 am on Wednesday, according to the Nigerian Electricity System Operator.

The system operator put the nation’s installed generation capacity at 12,954.40MW; available capacity at 7,652.60MW; transmission wheeling capacity at 7,300MW; and the peak generation ever attained at 5520.4MW.

The Drama climaxed a week ago at the burial of her hubby Dr Tosin Ajayi MD of First foundation medical center…

She is closing this drama with this last post she says….

”This is the first day of Lent a time for spiritual healing and cleansing. This will be my last word on this matter.⁣⁣

It was never my wish to talk about the passing of my late husband Dr Tosin Ajayi on social media, despite the fact that during this 10 month period, from his death on April 26th 2020, I was accused of murdering him by his adult children and their mother after spending 42 days in St Nicholas Hospital by his bedside and dragged to Panti police station, then to coroners court and then to High court.

I am thankful that God delivered me from all these false accusations and gave me victory to bury my late husband in the manner he deserved. ⁣

I want to express my gratitude to those men and women of God praying with me during these trying moments. I am also grateful for the unflinching support of my family and friends all over the world, who stood by me, even the “Aprokos” propagating me to stardom.

Throughout this 10 month period my sole focus and objective was to ensure that I gave my late husband a befitting burial in accordance with his status as an Icon in the healthcare field in Nigeria, which I am happy I achieved in his honour. Love is at the heart of everything in life. For God is love and Love is God”.

‘Solving Covid-19 is Very Easy Compared With Climate Change – Bill Gates Says

Billionaire, Bill Gates has opined that climate change is humanity’s greatest challenge and is a far greater problem than the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Gates who has become more vocal since the pandemic started, achieving net zero would be ‘humanity’s greatest ever achievement’

Solving climate change would be “the most amazing thing humanity has ever done”,  the billionaire founder of Microsoft said to BBC.

‘Ending the pandemic is very, very easy”, he claims.

“We’ve never made a transition like we’re talking about doing in the next 30 years. There is no precedent for this.”

“Fifty-one billion is how many tonnes of greenhouse gases the world typically adds to the atmosphere each year.”

“Net zero is where we need to get to.This means cutting emissions to a level where any remaining greenhouse gas releases are balanced out by absorbing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere. One way to do this is by planting trees, which soak up CO2 through their leaves.”

Gates says his focus is on how technology can help make climate change easily handled.

“Renewable sources like wind and solar can help us decarbonise electricity but that’s less than 30% of total emissions.”

“We are also going to have to decarbonise the other 70% of the world economy – steel, cement, transport systems, fertiliser production and much, much more.

“We simply don’t have ways of doing that at the moment for many of these sectors.

Gates says for climate change to be tackled there must be an innovation effort on a scale the world has never seen before.

‘At the moment, the economic system doesn’t price in the real cost of using fossil fuels.
Most users don’t pay anything for the damage to the environment done by pollution from the petrol in their car or the coal or gas that created the electricity in their home.”

“Right now, you don’t see the pain you’re causing as you emit carbon dioxide,”

“We need to have price signals to tell the private sector that we want green products,” he says.

That is going to require a huge investment by governments in research and development, Gates argued.

Gate maintains it will be impossible to avoid a disaster, particularly for those who live near the equator, without governments around the world getting behind the effort.

He says the US Republican Party needs to recognise the importance of tackling climate change.

This needs to be a “constant 30-year push”, he maintains. “Business just can’t change all that physical infrastructure unless the market signals are constant and very clear.”

Bill Gates Co-founded Microsoft in 1975 and is the World’s fourth richest person with a net worth of $124bn, according to Forbes

“India is going to build housing for their people, provide lighting at night, air conditioning to make conditions liveable,”

“If you buy an electric car, a hamburger made of a meat substitute, an electric heat pump for your home you are helping increase the production of these products and therefore helping drive prices down.”

Gates stated his private jets are powered by biofuels – aviation fuels made from plant products.

“I pay three times as much now for my aviation fuel, you know, over $7m [£5m] a year in all my offset spending.”

“I don’t think getting rid of flying would make sense,” he replies. “That type of brute force technique won’t get us there.”

He says the answer has to be “a type of aviation fuel that doesn’t cost much extra and is zero emission and that’s got to be biofuels or electric fuels or perhaps using green hydrogen to power the plane”.

On Monday morning, Gates wrote on Twitter;

“To avoid a climate disaster, we need to eliminate emissions from the ways we create electricity, grow food, make things, move around, and heat and cool our buildings. It won’t be easy, but I believe we can do it. This book is about what it will take.”
