Chibok boy: A six year-old boy from Chibok, in Borno State, who was paralyzed by Boko Haram three years ago, has the chance to be on his feet again.
A charity group based in Abuja, Dickens Sanomi Foundation, has offered to pay the medical bill of the boy, identified as Ali Ahmadu.
Boko Haram militants had run over the boy during an invasion of the town where 275 schoolgirls were kidnapped by the terrorists the same year.

The medical bill for the spinal cord surgery to enable young Ali to walk again, is $48,000 (N14,640,000.00). Surgery will take place at a medical facility in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, according to a statement by the Foundation.

“Ali needs corrective surgery to enable him walk again after he was over ran with a motor cycle in Chibok by Boko Haram members during a night raid,” said Nuhu Kwajafa, the coordinator of Global Initiative For Peace, Love and Care (GIPLC), an NGO spearheading the campaign for the medical aid of the young victim.
Mr. Kwajafa said the total requirement needed for the complete treatment of Ali was put at $60,000.00 (N18,300,00.00), including feeding, accommodation for three months. Mr Kwajafa expressed his thanks and appreciation to the National Assembly and all well meaning Nigerians for their support and contribution, thus far.

Members of the GIPLC were at the Dickens Sanomi Foundation office in Abuja as part of the initiative to ensure that young Ali walks again.
They were received by Chairman of the Foundation Igho Sanomi and Trustee members.
Chairman of the Foundation, Igho Sanomi, who is also the chairman of the energy company Taleveras said, “as a father, it is very touching to see a young boy like this suffer. It is sad what some of our kids have to go through. This is an opportunity for us to show our love to those who need it.”
“Although, education remains the key focus of the Foundation, kids have to be healthy before they can attend school. On behalf of the board of trustees of Dickens Sanomi Foundation, we will take care of Ali, this will include paying the Hospital bill and we will visit him in the Hospital after the surgery.”
The Dickens Sanomi Foundation (DSF) was founded in 2011 by the children of Dickens Oghenereumu Patrick Sanomi.
It serves both to commemorate the life of the family’s patriarch and to provide charitable support for that particular objective upon which he placed such great value, the education of Nigeria’s youth.
The resources of the Dickens Sanomi Foundation are used to deliver and support charitable projects whose aims and activities are in accord with this objective.
Examples of these include essay competitions, musical outreach programs and literacy awareness campaigns. Through this work, the Dickens Sanomi Foundation seeks to relieve the effects of socio-economic hardship amongst young Nigerians from vulnerable backgrounds, and to empower them with the knowledge they need to secure a brighter future for themselves and for Nigeria as a whole.

Francis Odega Supports Nnamdi Kanu And Biafra

Nollywood actor and also comedian, Francis Odega has supported the agitation for Biafra by Nnamdi Kanu and his team, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Odega, recognized for his ‘gerara here’ slang, described that he was in support of an Igbo nation because the North required Igbo out of their region.

He stated the October 1 ultimatum was a warning that the Southeast people should be on their own.

“I don’t think Nnamdi Kanu is doing bad for himself. Because when one look at it, how can some Northern youths say they don’t want us (Igbos) from their states?
“That means we are not welcomed. If one say ‘leave the North, quit the North’ that means such persons don’t want us and the only thing for us to do is to have our own.
“If someone ask me not to come to his house again, what do I do? I look for my own house. I don’t have a reason to pretend about this.
“If Biafra want to come let it come,”

“After some minutes, the distributor, who heard the DSS agent discussing his fate in an adjoining room, began moving to the door, which had been left ajar, and then bolted and took to his heels.”
Also, in an electronic voice mail sent to Vanguard, the distributor said he was repeatedly asked “Are you the author?” “Where is the author?” and “where is your passport?” among several questions to which he told them he was not the author and neither was he travelling abroad.”

“Bring Buhari To Me, I’ll Heal Him Just As I Healed Babangida” – Satguru Maharaj

The Founder of One Love Family, Satguru Maharaj Ji, has called on the Nigerian govt to bring ailing President Muhammadu Buhari to him as he can heal him of his health problem.
Maharaj ji, who spoke at the Nigerian Union of Journalist (NUJ) secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria also guaranteed Nigerians that problems confronting the country would soon be over.

He stated he was all set to heal Buhari if the presidency could bring him home.

“I do not believe in sickness. The President of Nigeria is great. And he should remain so. And that is why if he comes to me for healing, I will heal him. I have done it for several public office holders. I remembered that I treated Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB), when he was afflicted by an ailment. I cured him. But he later denied me.

He asserted the presence of the president was needed in the country, as it would douse agitation of Nigerians and help address issues challenging the country.

According to him:

“Since he left, the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, has been acting on his behalf. And I believe he has defied Nigerians prediction that he will be a figure head. I believe he knows what he is doing.”

Maharaj Ji also condemned the ongoing indefinite industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over Federal Government unfulfilled promises, as an act aimed to draw the country’s education sector backward.
