Call for Nigeria’s breakup part of unity in diversity – Osinbajo


Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has advised Nigerians to save the energy and resources wasted on debates about division of the country.

The Vice President said Nigeria in its diversity is the kind of country God has ordained.

Osinbajo said this when he represented President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2017 Eid Al-Adha Lunch held inside the Presidential Villa , Abuja on Sunday.

Osinbajo said, “That nation that God has in mind is a diverse nation; diverse in resources, in ideas and in opinions.

“The kind of nation that we have, where there is an argument about something everywhere. Before you get tired of that lone argument, another one arises and before you finish with that one, there is yet another one.

“This is the type of country that God has ordained; where we have diversity of opinions and ideas- people saying their own things here and there.

“But God has also planned that this country will remain together, and that we will be a nation that is gifted just as we have the oil, the gas, and the most arable lands than most continents.

“This is a country that has all of what other countries will travel and spend money looking for the sort of resources that we have. All of the tourism resources that we have, people will travel everywhere looking for them.

“It is a nation of men and women so creative and prosperous that we will feed the entire continent and create opportunities for the world.

“All the different ethnic groups are important in that arrangement. On every ethnicity, incredible minds, brilliant and creative people doing all manner of things.

“Our energies and resources should not be spent again on debate about division. Our manifest destiny is to be a great nation, not to be a nation where we are talking about division.

“We must focus our time energies and resources on being that great nation that God has called us to be. I think we have started building that country already.”

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
