Flood renders 500 people
homeless in Ondo

For residents of Ayetoro community in Ilaje Local
Government Area of Ondo State, it was a day of agony after
a torrential rain wreaked havoc in the community.
With the effect of the rain taking its toll in the community,
which was ravaged by flood, it was gathered that over 500
people have been rendered homeless with over 700 houses
affected.
According to one of the affected residents of the
community, Mr. Emmanuel Aralu, the only church in the
town, the palace, health center, and schools were all
affected by the flood, stressing that some residents had fled
the coastal community because of the disaster.
Aralu also maintained that the socio-economic activities of
the community had been paralyzed as most of the people of
the community who engage in fishing had abstained from
the river and the ocean while most shops had been
destroyed.
Another resident, who was affected by the flood, Mrs.
Josephine explained that flooding has become a recurring
issue in the community.
She added that all efforts to call the attention of the state
government to the issue have been fruitless with no
measures taken.

“We need help from the government before the flood
washes the community away, the state and federal
governments should come to our aid.”

King Paul started his career with Reggiana before moving to Juventus in 2011 where he was loaned back for a year but after progressing through the youth ranks of Old Lady he secured a loan move to Virtus Lanciano, a Serie B side in 2016 with an option to buy at the end of the season.

Failing to impress, he was returned to Juventus, and then loaned to Lega Pro side Pontedera, Fernana, Fano and Viareggio before joining Pianese on July 14, 2019.

Coronavirus has spread from China to countries in Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and Africa.

Italy is the country in Europe with the highest number of reported cases. Some Italian Serie A matches were postponed last weekend as a preventive measure against the spread of the virus.

On Friday, the Lagos state government and the federal ministry of health confirmed the first case of coronavirus in Nigeria.

Catholic Church Tells Buhari Of Being Tired Of Burying Priests

Catholic Church Tells Buhari Of Being Tired Of Burying Priests

The Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna Archdiocese, Most
Reverend Mathew Man’oso Ndagoso has charged the
President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to
“wake up to its responsibilities” of ensuring adequate
security across the country.
Ndagoso explained that the charge became necessary due
to the deteriorating security situation across the country.
Fielding questions from journalists yesterday shortly before
the commencement of 142 National Executive Council
(NEC) meeting of the Catholic Laity Council of Nigeria,
CLCN, in Kaduna, the Archbishop said failure to ensure the
security of lives and properties would rubbish the
achievement of government.
He said: “Anybody who cares for this country must be
concerned about what is happening today regarding
insecurity.
“What is happening in the North East which has crept into
the North West, South East and South West is becoming
alarming.
“I have made this call before and I will still make it that the
responsibility of any government either through the ballot or
barrels of the gun or through whatever means is to
safeguard the life and property of the citizenry.
“I keep saying if you build roads, build hospitals and other
infrastructures if there is no peace, all these things are
useless.
“Any responsible government must ensure that there is
peace in the country.
“Now that elections are over, the President must ensure
integration of Nigerians.”
Also speaking, the National President of CLCN, Thomas
Adekoya, lamented that insecurity has rubbished the image
of Nigeria at home and before the international community.
Adekoya urged the Buhari federal government to wake up to
its responsibilities because the Catholic church is tired of
burying priests.
He called on the government to, “as a matter of urgency,
initiate moves for the restructuring of the country and
saddle the federating units, which we suggest should be the
six geopolitical zones, to secure themselves”.
He said: “If the managers of the nation’s security have
reached a cul de sac or simply put, have reached their wits
end in terms of securing our lives and property, then it
means the present structure has become unmanageable.
“The Federal Government should therefore, as a matter of
urgency, initiate moves for the restructuring of the country
and saddle the federating units, which we suggest should be
the six geopolitical zones, to secure themselves.
“It is saddening that our country, Nigeria, has continued to
be in the eyes of local and international communities for the
wrong reasons. For the past three months, or since we gave
the last state of the nation address, no single day has
passed without news of one gruesome killing or the other;
one case of kidnapping or the other, raping of minors by
matured men, including those who descend as low as raping
their own innocent daughters.
“From the foregoing, it is clear that insecurity has continued
to dominate our national discuss.
“However, our greatest worry is why the Catholic Church
should be at the receiving end of some of the most bizarre
of these killings. In late August, Rev. Fr. David Tanko was on
his way to Takum in Taraba State to attend a meeting that
would seek ways to end the renewed age-long Tiv/Jukun
crises when he was killed by gunmen.
“What made Fr. Tanko’s murder more gruesome was the
fact that his assailants not only killed him, they set his body
ablaze in his car. Earlier that same month, Rev. Fr. Paul Offu
of Enugu Diocese was also murdered. And if you recall, Rev.
Fr. Clement Ugwu was kidnapped and later killed about five
months before Fr. Offu, also in Enugu.
“Combining the killings of these anointed men of God with
others happening daily in our country reminds us of Thomas
Hobbes’ ‘Life in the state of nature’ in which human
existence is described as ‘solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and
short.’
“Perhaps nothing demonstrates the fact that our government
has lost grip of the security situation in the country than
what happened recently when a State governor, with the
whole gamut of his security apparatus, went into a forest to
negotiate with kidnappers and other forms of criminals
terrorising the state.
“While we can condone the Federal Government negotiating
with Boko Haram for the release of Chibok girls and other
similar hostages the state Governors example only shows
how deep the nation has sunk in terms of securing its
citizens.
“If we hold dear that the protection of lives and property and
the welfare of citizens are the greatest responsibility of any
government towards its citizens, then our present day
government has fallen far short of the expectation of
Nigerians, no matter any other achievements it may credit
itself with. One dare asks at this point: For how long shall
Nigerians continue in this Hobbesian state of nature?
“Nigerians are tired of losing their dear ones to these
killings; Catholics are tired of mourning and burying their
priests who are daily murdered for no just cause.
“If the Church must produce more martyrs let it not be at the
hands of these killers. We therefore renew our call on the
governments at the federal and state levels to wake up to
their responsibility of protecting the lives and property of
citizens.”
