Army Denies Killing Protesters, Says Lagos Govt. Invited Them

In a shocking twist of events, the Nigerian Army has finally owned up to being the security officials on ground at the Lekki Tollgate incident after initially denying. 

The Army had initially tagged every reports of them being at the venue of the protests which saw lives lost and many others injured as fake news. 

However, in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, Olaniyi Osoba, the Army has now revealed they were invited by the Lagos state government to enforce the curfew.

“The attention of Headquarters 81 Division Nigerian Army has been drawn to a viral video on social media in which it was alleged that civilians protesters were massacred by soldiers at Lekki toll plaza.”

“This allegation is untrue, unfounded and aimed at causing anarchy in the country. At no time did soldiers of the Nigerian Army open fire on any civilian.”

“From the onset of the ENDSARS protest, there was no time personnel of 81 Division Nigerian Army Lagos, were involved.”

Mr Olaniyi added that there were “glaring and convincing evidence to attest that no protester was shot by the soldiers.”

5 Things To Do When You Are Fed Up With Everything

 

  1. IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM. 



The first step is to figure out the problem. Is it school? money? relationship? mood swings? family drama? unemployment? Knowing how you keep yourself stuck will help you to stop repeating the same old story. It will give you the freedom to take action that’s truly aligned with where you want to go and who you want to be.

 

2. DONT TRY TO PLEASE PEOPLE;ITS NOT WORTH IT

18 Everyday Things That Are Fed Up With Your Crap (My Illustrations) | Bored Panda
Trust me, it is not worth it. You’re a people-pleaser if you do things to keep others happy or keep the peace, even if it’s something you don’t really want to do.
You find that you change how you act around certain people just to make them feel more comfortable.

You’re a people-pleaser if you behave and speak in ways that you think will make others like you more or accept you. People-pleasing is not kindness. And being someone that you think others expect you to be is getting you nowhere. It takes away from your path, your success, the things you want to accomplish and how you want to spend your time.
Putting others first to make them happy, when done too often, can take away from your happiness. There is a difference between selfish behavior and putting your needs first..
You aren’t valuing yourself and your desires when you put them on the back burner and put everyone else above yours.

3.  SET BOUNDARIES

Boundary Quotes. QuotesGram

Set boundaries. Let people know their limits when it comes to you. Let them know its not okay to mess with you. It’s okay to set limits on what you will accept regarding how people treat you and what they ask of you. The boundaries you set for yourself are personal and can also be flexible. Setting boundaries basically means identifying the rights you set for yourself and choosing to adhere to them.

How to Create and Set Healthy Boundaries

Understand that when you start to change your behavior, some people may not like it. They have become used to you accommodating them and their needs. So be prepared for some pressure or push back when you begin to assert yourself.
If they get irritated or angry, remember that you can’t control what others think of you and it really isn’t your business anyway.

4. CHANGE YOUR ENVIRONMENT

Make a stop on the road to make an act of reflection about possible factors involved in your current state of existential conflict, with the purpose of identifying the reason of said situation.
Once you have identified the factor or factors related to the “boredom of life”, find new motivations and reorient your expectations and life goals.

Prayers in the Bible: Scripture Quotes about Praying
Of course, after the reflection and before the action, a period of inner peace is possible, which can be achieved through prayer or meditation.

We stand together as youths and as a country.

Much love.

COVID-19: FG shocked, begs looters to return its vaccines, medical consumables


The Federal Government has expressed shock at the looting of some warehouses across the country, begging those who looted medical storage facilities to return the vaccines and other medical consumables they carted away.

Government also explained the inability of some states to complete the distribution of palliatives sent to them by CA-COVID, a private sector coalition supporting the national response against COVID-19.

It urged state governments not to also shut down their isolation centres, saying there is need to be at alert in case of a resurgence of the pandemic.

Speaking at a media briefing by the Presidential Taskforce PTF on COVID-19, Chairman of the PTF and Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr Boss Mustapha said CA-COVID worked with the state governments in the distribution of their palliatives.

He said; “Of particular concern to the PTF, is the issue of palliatives found and looted from various warehouses around the country. It is important to make the following clarifications. The Federal Government Palliatives consisted largely of the 70MT of grains released from the Strategic Grain Reserves as well as rice secured from the Nigerian Customs Service. The share for each State were handed over to the State Governments for onward distribution to the citizens.

“The private sector coalition (CACOVID) that has been quite supportive of the Federal Government, worked with the States through the Nigerian Governors’ Forum to determine the quantum of their intervention, which was intended to be effective and equitable. A number of indices were worked out for this purpose. The National Coordinator shall also provide further distinction and the modus operandi for the distribution of the palliatives donated to the states by the coalition”.
