World Economic Forum: 13 Heads of State, Over 1000 Delegates Confirm Participation

About 48 hours to the commencement of the most anticipated event, no fewer than 13 heads of state and more than 1000 delegates from across the globe are billed to participate at the  World Economic Forum on Africa (WEFA) slated to hold at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja,  between May 7 and 9, 2014.

One of the major highlights of the global event is the launch of a "Safe Schools Initiative' for the North-east by Africa's richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, and the Chairman, Editor-in-Chief of THISDAY Newspapers, Prince Nduka Obaigbena, among others.

WEF's Director and Head of Africa Region, Ms. Elsie Kanza, who made the disclosure at a pre-event briefing in Abuja Monday, said the figure was one of the highest after many years of  hosting the event  in different countries of the world.

"We are expecting over a thousand participants from  over 70 countries, more than half will come from African countries and many will come from the business communities, NGOs (non governmental organisations) and religious groups,'' she said.

In an earlier televised interview the Minister of Finance and coordinating Minister of the economy Prof. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala have assured the international community and participants of the WEF of preparations to ensure maximum security for them as they prepare to come to Nigeria for this Epoch making event.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
