    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve
    either authored myself or outsourced but it looks
    like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.
    Do you know any methods to help stop content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the
    screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d
    post to let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

Why Nigerians are being killed in South Africa – Peter Obi

Why Nigerians are being killed in South Africa – Peter Obi Why Nigerians are being killed in South Africa – Peter Obi Peter Obi 2 1024x679

Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the February 23 presidential election, Peter Obi has condemned the incessant killings in Nigerians.

He however noted that the targeting of Nigerians by the killers “has a lot to do with the way and manner we as a nation value and treat our own people”.

“When we criminalize our people all the time, you don’t expect to get the desired respect and valuing from other people.

“For Ghanaians to be listed among nationals that can enter South Africa without visa while Nigerians are being subjected to such extreme humiliation and killings, should tell a lot about how the global community regards us.”

Speaking to newsmen on Sunday, Obi said that Nigerians should not be killed anywhere, more so in South Africa, given the huge sacrifices made by Nigeria, including the resources it deployed, to secure South Africa’s freedom.

The former Anambra State Governor particularly recalled the personal efforts he made when he was Governor to visit South Africa twice to discuss this menace in his meetings with Okey Emuchay and Uche Okeke, the Nigerian diplomats in charge in South Africa at the various times of his visit.

Speaking against the backdrop of the latest killing of a top Nigerian Lady, former Deputy Director General of Chartered Insurance Insitute of Nigeria, Mrs Elizabeth Ndubisi-Chukwu, Obi said that the record of deaths of Nigerians in South Africa is unacceptable and should not be tolerated any longer by Nigeria.

He advised the two leading continental nations to treat this matter as critical and take steps to stem the killings to prevent any possible follow-up consequences.

Obi called on relevant agencies and persons in government who need to act on the killings to treat them as a priority by bringing to bear all the necessary energy and urgency to stem the menace and avert the consequent diplomatic impasse.

biafra group moblizes against miyetti allah, issues waring to fulanis Biafra group moblizes against Miyetti Allah, issues waring to Fulanis IPOB

Amid calls by Miyetti Allah Kautal Haure for Fulanis to remain in the South and defend themselves, the Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, have asked the herders to leave the South or face actions.

BNYL said it had organized strong militia groups across its areas of influence to repel any attacks by killer herdsmen.

Chief Press Secretary of BNYL, Comrade Kufre Obot, made the disclosure to newsmen at the weekend in Calabar.

He said “The apex Fulani group is encouraging the killer herdsmen to remain in the South and kill in pretense of self defense but that is dead on arrival, because we have prepared our boys ready to repel any attacks, Miyetti Allah will be shocked at what they will see”.

Obot also disclosed that BNYL have focused on grassroots campaign since 2016.

“We are a grassroot movement. It is evident in our grassroot programs in Eket, Ikom, Ahoada, Emohua, Bakassi, Obudu and other towns. We have decided to checkmate herders excesses”.

The group’s spokesman urged communities in the South-East and South-South to organize vigilante groups to protect the communities.

He added that: “A community in Imo State called Abba in Nkwerre LGA have become the first to launch strong a security group with drone cameras, security phones and alarm polls across the communities.

“I would advise others to follow suit and be part of efforts to secure our land because no group can do it alone without the communities helping themselves too.”
