Published

Nigeria

Over 50% of Nigerians are now poorer, as revealed in a report released on Thursday by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI).

The report further disclosed that the number of people who are multidimensionally poor increased from 86 million to 98 million in the last decade. Pedro Conceição, Director of the Human Development Report Office at UNDP, said in the report;

“Also, important to note from the report is that when compared to the national poverty line which measures income/consumption, a larger proportion of Nigerians (51%) are multidimensionally poor than those that are income poor (46%).

“Even though the national average shows that around 50% of Nigeria a multidimensionally poor, state and local government levels will reveal a completely different scenario.

“We need—even amongst those living in poverty—to understand people’s different experiences of deprivation. Are they malnourished? Can they go to school? Only then will poverty reduction policies be both efficient and effective.“

Sabina Alkire, OPHI Director also said;

“We looked at data for a group of ten middle- and low-income countries and we found encouraging news that the bottom 40 percent were moving faster than the rest. A pro-poor pattern that reduces inequalities in several Sustainable Development Goals.”

The report also had Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator, saying;

“To fight poverty, one needs to know where poor people live. They are not evenly spread across a country, not even within a household.

“The 2019 global Multidimensional Poverty Index provides detailed information policymakers need to more effectively target their policies.”

Cristiano Ronaldo Hits New Milestone After Scoring 700th Career Goal

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 700th goal of his professional career during Portugal’s Euro 2020 qualifying loss to Ukraine on Monday, October 14th.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner brought up his septuple century for club and country when he converted a second-half penalty in Kiev, awarded after Taras Stepanenko handled the ball inside the box.

It was his 95th goal for Portugal, with only Iran’s Ali Daei (109) ahead of him on the all-time international goals list.

Ronaldo is just one of six footballers to have hit the 700 mark, with Josef Bican estimated to be the top goalscorer in history with 805 goals. Behind him is a pair of former Brazilian stars in Romario and Pele, who finished their illustrious careers with 772 goals and 767 goals, respectively. Ferenc Puskas’ 746 career finishes and Gerd Muller’s 735 round out the top five.

Ronaldo’s long-time rival, Lionel Messi, looks set to join the 700 club imminently, as the Argentine is currently sitting on 699 career finishes. The bulk of Ronaldo’s goals came for Real Madrid, 450 over the course of nine seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu between 2009 and 2018.

PHOTOS Of Man Easing Himself On Jubilee House Grass Goes Viral

Published

on

The majority of us have been in that situation when we have that deadly stomach upset while in town and there is no place of convenience closer for one rush and let go of the waste.

Sometimes we try begging people around to allow us to use their washrooms, some may agree others might give excuses because its hard to trust people these days.

In a rather bizarre twist, a man has been captured in a photo with his pants down allegedly easing himself on the beautiful lawns in front of the Jubilee House, the seat of Ghana’s government.

It is not clear whether or not the man is mentally stable or he’s on a one man protest against the recent hikes in prices of goods and services which has affected the fee per user for attending nature’s call.

A recent public service notice which went viral on social media had indicated that the fee per user for attending to nature’s call at a public toilet had also been affected, increasing from GHC0.50 to GHC1.00.

Twitter user, @Amegaxi, shared the photo on his handle with a caption which said: ”I just saw someone taking a sh!t around Flagstaff House.”

See Screenshot below.

As it stands now, it is also not very clear yet whether or not security camera’s around the Jubilee House captured the man early enough for the needed action to be taken.
