The World Health Organization declared Africa’s largest country by population “Ebola-free” on Monday, a sign of how easily the virus could have been contained had other West African countries acted as swiftly as Nigeria did.-The Wall Street Journal
This is one of the most excited news I have heard in a long time from Nigeria. I am so proud of my country for taking active steps to defeat Ebola. THANK YOU to all the W.H.O doctors who traveled from their home country to help us contain this deadly virus, State and federal Ministries of Health, volunteers, helpers and anybody who played a part in helping us defeat Ebola. THANK YOU so much!!!! God bless you each and every one of you and your families. We appreciate all your help!!!!
I encourage every Nigerian to use the social media to say thank you to people who worked hard to help us eradicate Ebola.
Reviewed by Brunilda Nazario, MD Aug. 21, 2014 — Two Americans infected with Ebola as they cared for patients in West Africa have fully recovered and have been discharged from the Atlanta hospital where they were treated, officials said.
“After a rigorous course of treatment and thorough testing we have determined, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and state health departments, that Dr. [Kent] Brantly has recovered from the Ebola virus infection and he can return to his family, his community, and his life without public health concerns,” said Bruce Ribner, MD, the infectious disease specialist at Emory University Hospital who supervised his care.”
How are we Africans supposed to feel? Two Americans survived the virus but an African was the first to die in this country flowing with milk and honey. Why did the African have to die? Isn’t he a human being just like the two Americans who survived this deadly virus? Why didn’t he receive the same treatment like the two Americans who survived?
Our People: Lies and Corruption dey for town.
It’s time we learn to care for each other because at the end of the day; they don’t really care about us.

Congrats to Imo-owo Mbede who is currently running a peace campaign in Nigeria. Corruption, violence is slowly becoming the norm for Nigerians. It takes Eagles like him to stand up to fight for change. We have had enough blood shed in Nigeria. It’s time for Peace and Unity to reign in our motherland.
What are you doing to help make your country a better place?
I am reading this book “Why I love Black women by Michael Dyson” and I will do a book review soon. Love this book.
Here are some wise quotes from this book..
“I think a lot of Sisters are just looking in the wrong places and settling for all the wrong things..money and cars. If they only knew the best man to find is one that truly loves God, because if he does, he can’t help himself but love you.”
“Learn to love yourself which will protect you being vulnerable to men who seek to disrespect, reject, or misuse women”
I am tired of hearing about black men mistreating their women so I will be posting information on this blog to empower women. We need to love ourselves enough to walk out of abusive relationships.
