Herdsmen demand compensation for members killed during crisis



The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has asked that the FG pay compensation to herdsmen affected by all forms of crisis in the country.


The National Secretary of MACBAN, Baba Ngelzarma, made the appeal while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Sunday on the position of the association to the crisis between farmers and herdsmen across the country.

He said that no fewer than 1,000 of its members including women and children have been killed and 20,000 cattle rustled between June 2017 and January 2018 during crises in various states.

Ngelzarma called for the setting up of a Federal Judicial Commission of Inquiry to access the killings in order to unravel the truth and offenders. “We call on the government to pay compensation to victims of all crises to reduce their level of suffering.

If the government accepts that, it is left for them to establish a committee that will go and access the level of damage. We have a document of members that were affected by the pastoralists in the North-East but what we discovered is that none of them were captured in the IDPs programme because they are not sedentary.

Let the government compensate. That will help calm the situation very well,’’ he said. Ngelzarma, who said the association had over 20 million registered members and no fewer than 50 million cattle, regretted that they were the most neglected farmers in the country.

He appealed to the FG to set up a Ministry of Livestock Development to attend to the multidimensional needs of the industry. Ngelzarma said the association welcomed the current resolve by the FG to address the lingering crises, adding that dialogue was the solution to the tackling the menace.

“We submit ourselves for any positive participation to restore mutual and harmonious relationship in the country. We dissociate ourselves from any other group or individual that is out to foment trouble in the country.


We demand for immediate disarmament of all illegally armed militias across the country in the interest of peace, security and stability,’’ he said. Via:

I Regret Getting Married– Gifty



Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Gifty powers, in a new interview opened up about her life after Big Brother, acting career, marriage and other things about her.


Read the excerpts from the interview with THE PUNCH below;


Background


My grandfather is from Obosi in Anambra State. He is a Reverend Father and a barrister. He married my grandmother who is partly Liberian and Sierra Leonean, and they gave birth to my mum before they got divorced. I am my parents’ first daughter, but I’m the second child. I grew up in Ghana, Accra precisely.


Education
For my post-elementary education, I attended St. Theresa International School, Accra, Ghana. For my tertiary education, I attended University of Legon, Ghana.


Acting


I first knew that I wanted to become an actress at the age of 15, but my mum once told me that at the age of five, I used to apply her lipstick and stand in front of her mirror to act. However, I joined the movie industry in an absurd manner. I can’t remember the exact year but on a hot Saturday, I drove in my friend’s car to buy some things. While driving, someone hit the car and I became angry. He apologised and introduced himself as a movie producer. He gave me his complimentary card but still I insisted that he fixed the car. The following week, I went to a location and I was given a sub-lead role.


Music


I have appeared in a lot of music videos, that I have lost count of the number. It has been my mum’s dream for a very long time that I should become a singer. She tells me that there is a future for me in music, so yes; there is a chance that I may delve into music. I recently went to a friend’s studio and soon, I will be releasing something cool.


Lessons


While growing up, I faced a lot of humiliation with my mum and siblings, and that really taught me a few lessons about life that cannot be forgotten. Some people say to me that I’m not the only one that has suffered, but I believe that it’s not about how easily the words come out of your mouth; it’s about how well you can tell your story. I don’t have any challenges. Challenges are rather scared of me. If you cannot make the necessary moves while young, then you would have to sit in a corner and cry out your eyeballs while watching your mates doing what you should have done. Don’t blame the devil if you’re too lazy to climb that ladder.


Big Brother Naija


I had a great time at Big Brother Naija. I enjoyed the Friday game nights the most. I also enjoyed the tasks, the truth or dare nights, the shower hours, and hearing Big Brother speak. One of the lessons I learnt while in the house is that one has to be tolerant. If I were to go back into the house again, I wouldn’t show the insane part of Gifty Powers. However, making out with guys in the house was a strategy and I don’t regret it at all. I will do it again if I have to.


Breakthrough


A lot of opportunities have come my way after Big Brother Naija. Every second of my career has been amazing.


Marriage


I do feel like I got married too early. However, I plan to give details about what actually happened. It’s a big regret that I wouldn’t stop talking about. I thought I was in love but I found out that it was just lust. I didn’t make proper findings before saying ‘I do.’ I went through hell and I don’t wish the same for my enemies. It is part of my life’s experience and I’m glad that I conquered it all.


Mr. 2kay


To be honest with you, I don’t know how to define my relationship with Mr. 2kay. I’m still searching for a term to describe it.


Current projects


I have some employees who manufacture skin products. That’s because I have been asked several questions on what I apply on my skin that makes it glow so much. I also have Gifty Powers Lingerie for both men and women, though I have yet to launch it. I have a lot of crazy ideas, and it would shock you to know that I may even be aiming to climb the highest mountain in the world.


Romance


To be my ideal man, all you have to do is to be yourself. I can date and marry someone in the entertainment industry. Understanding is all that is needed to make it work.


Scandals


Whenever I read or hear negative things about me, I become amused. They also embolden me. It feels special to be wanted. Even an unborn baby has enemies.


Role models


I admire Kim Kardashian and she has influenced me in several ways. Aside from her maturity and strength, which are out of this world, I love her style. I also admire my mum. She was once a runway supermodel who practised abroad. Due to her experience and exposure, she designs my clothes. At 51, she has the strength of a 12-year-old girl.


Balance


My mum always tells me never to stop trying if I want to make it in life. You have to work till you are able to get what you want. My mum manages my company. She handles its operations whenever I’m busy with other things, and I pay her.


Fashion


I love to step out looking classy, elegant and sexy.


Relaxation


I relax by spending time with my nuclear family or by going to the club with my mum.
