Quit notice: NOA assures Igbo in Bauchi of safety, security


Acting Director, National Orientation Agency (NOA), Bauchi State, Nuru Yusuf Kobi, and his management team, at the weekend, paid an advocacy visit to Igbo community in the state. The aim of the visit, it was gathered, was to reassure them of the Federal Government’s commitment to their safety and security.

In a press release made available to Daily Sun, signed by NOA’s Head, Media and Communication in the state, Shuaibu Danjuma, emphasised the Federal Government’s commitment to a united Nigeria where all ethnic nationalities can actualise their dreams.

The release informed that Kobi assured the Igbo community of Federal Government’s commitment and determination towards ensuring a peaceful coexistence for all Nigerians irrespective of their cultural inclinations and associations.

Kobi further said that the unity and diversity of Nigeria are the country’s strength, declaring that every citizen is guaranteed by the constitution to live in any parts of the country.

He, however, urged Igbo in Bauchi State to disregard the quit notice by the Coalitions of Northern Youths.

Responding, the Eze Igbo of Bauchi,  Igwe, Eze Jude Umezika, thanked the NOA  team in the state for the honour done to him and his cabinet through the visit.

Umezika, who could not hide his feelings, called on other traditional rulers and critical stakeholders to come forward and create awareness in order to discourage   misguided youths from indulging in act or utterances capable of creating disaffection in the country.

He further called on leaders across the country to promote national unity rather than agitating for the division of the country.

Eze Igbo added that the on-going agitation is a primitive ways of drawing government’s attention to their plights.

“We must harness and develop the rich resources of the country through a harmonious and peaceful coexistence in a mutual manner,” the release quoted Eze  Umezika as saying.

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
