IS NIGERIA MATERIALLY POOR?

Mahatma Gandhi once said: “poverty is the worst form of violence”. This is very true of Nigeria. Our political and economic leaders continue to inflict violence on millions of Nigerians. This violence is being done by rich Nigerians to the poor by the systematic exclusion of the poor from the political and economic life of our country. No one hardly wins a ticket at the primaries of political parties without it being given to the individual as concession from the stakeholders in that party. This goes all the way from local government council elections to the presidency.

BREAK THE SILENCE ON HIV/AIDS IN YOUR COMMUNITY

The 2014 International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014) put the eradication of stigma and discrimination on its agenda, with its slogan “no one left behind” ensuring that non-discrimination is adhered to in the HIV response. The use of specific HIV, AIDS and sexual reproduction education programmes that emphasize the rights of people living with HIV is a well-documented way of eradicating stigma. As well as being made aware of their rights, people living with HIV can be empowered in order to take action if these rights are violated.
