[VIDEO] Lagos State 2015 Governorship Debate: Akinwunmi Ambode trashes Jimi Agbaje at LCCI Governorship debate?

For those undecided voters in Lagos, you might want to watch this two-part video of Jimi Agbaje and Akinwunmi Ambode slugging it out at a debate that was hosted by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Friday, January 23.

[MUST READ] #NIGERA Let’s defeat bird flu, again!

There are two factors that should console every Nigerian concerning the recent outbreak of Avian Influenza, commonly known as bird flu.

Nevertheless, we should be somewhat glad that of all the five subtypes of the HPAI- i.e. H5NI, H7N3, H7N7, H7N9 and H9N2 – that are considered dangerous because they are the only types that are pathogenic in humans, it is the H5NI strain which has hit our birds. At least, the H5N1 has defined and easily recognisable symptoms which could be identified in order to aid early decontamination of affected areas. It could have been worse.
