20 percent Of Nigerians Mentally Ill : Psychiatrist




A renowned Consultant Psychiatrist at the Federal Medical Center, Gusau, Zamfara, Dr Aremu Saad, says over 20 percent of Nigerians suffer from different forms of mental illnesses.

Dr. Aremu made this disclosure on Thursday while speaking with journalists, according to NAN.

He also said many of the patients do not know that they were not well due to the negligence of routine medical checks.

He said the figure was part of various mental health care researches conducted by experts in recent years.

“We are also very sure that only about 20 percent of those with the illness has violent tendencies and the illness is curable if medical care is given and the patient adheres to the doctor’s prescriptions.”

He said that the situation was further compounded by the non-passage of Mental Health Bill by the National Assembly.

He said mental illnesses could occur due to drug abuse, genetic transfer, depression, or even if one loses an election, like in recent times in Nigeria.

Aremu then expressed confidence in the passage of the bill on Mental Health, noting that it would address the issues of treatment, facilities, offenders who hide behind mental illness and stigmatization among others.

Leave Our Employees Out Of This : Twitter’s Jack Dorsey Fires Back At Donald Trump And Mark Zuckerberg



Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey has fired back at President Donald Trump after he accused the social media platform of meddling in the US election which will be taking place later this year. He also tackled Mark Zuckerberg after he suggested that Twitter was trying to be “an arbiter of truth”.

The exchange ensued after Twitter applied its fact-check label to two tweets shared by President Donald Trump, which prompted readers to fact check the president’s claims.

Dorsey’s response was spured by a Fox News appearance by senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, where she goaded viewers to harass Twitter’s head of site integrity, Yoel Roth.

He stated that Trump’s tweets were fact-checked because they “may mislead people into thinking they don’t need to register to get a ballot.”

Dorsey tweeted;

Fact check: there is someone ultimately accountable for our actions as a company, and that’s me. Please leave our employees out of this. We’ll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make.

Per our Civic Integrity policy (…), the tweets yesterday may mislead people into thinking they don’t need to register to get a ballot (only registered voters receive ballots). We’re updating the link on @realDonaldTrump’s tweet to make this more clear.

Mark Zuckerberg’s comment in which he outlined Facebook’s obsessively neutral approach to policing its platform with Twitter’s present situation in an interview with Fox News, was also addressed by the Twitter CEO.

Zuckerberg had said; “We have a different policy than, I think, Twitter on this.

“I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online.

“Private companies probably shouldn’t be, especially these platform companies, shouldn’t be in the position of doing that.”

Reacting to the comment, Dorsey rejected Zuckerberg’s tag and also cited the company’s Civic Integrity Policy.

He added; This does not make us an “arbiter of truth.” Our intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves. More transparency from us is critical so folks can clearly see the why behind our actions.

The company also made a clarification on its decision to add a fact-checking link to two of Trump’s tweets.

It read; We added a label to two @realDonaldTrump Tweets about California’s vote-by-mail plans as part of our efforts to enforce our civic integrity policy. We believe those Tweets could confuse voters about what they need to do to receive a ballot and participate in the election process.

On Wednesday evening, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters President Trump would soon sign an executive order “pertaining to social media,” widely expected to be a shocking though likely unsubstantial strike back at Twitter’s policy enforcement choices this week.

The order may rehash the White House’s previous stalled efforts to threaten Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a vital legal provision underpinning the modern internet and wielding power against social media companies through the FTC and FCC.

Ahead of the expected retaliation, Trump tweeted “Stay Tuned!!!” to his more than 80 million followers.
