The struggle is real!
A reputable radio station in Lagos, Nigeria, shut down it's activities earlier than usual today due to fuel scarcity. The station normally works 24/7 and due to the fuel scarcity that Nigerians have been facing for some days now, the station which has been working with diesel due to lack of electricity had to shut down earlier than usual.
If this problem is not resolved, the country's economy might be reduced to zero in no time. A country like Nigeria where companies depend on fuel for their operations due to lack of electricity, these very few companies will be forced to shut down if care is not taken. Nigeria stands to lose the very few companies left in it to her neighbouring country.

They led a relatively comfortable life in the house where they only depended on generator as the only source of electricity. Although their father was not engaged in any kind of work, he provided for them.
My father was not working. He never left the house except on a few occasions at night. But if I asked for N50, 000, he gave it to me. We had no visitors and we visited nobody,” she said.All they had to do were sleep, eat and watch home videos.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says that over 98,000 Nigerian women die annually from the use of firewood.
"If a woman cooks breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is equivalent to smoking between three and 20 packets of cigarette a day. The death from this sector contributes to 10 per cent of global annual death and it is bigger than tuberculosis, HIV and AIDS and malaria combined, and it is only killing women,"
An official of the Federal Ministry of Environment, Ms Bahijjahtu Abubakar, who is the National Coordinator, Renewable Energy Programme, told newsmen at the official launch of RUWES and the 4th Annual Nigeria Renewable Energy Day in Abuja on Wednesday.
She said there was so much energy poverty in Nigeria, especially in the rural areas in a country that was blessed with abundant energy resources and that there was no way Nigeria would be contributing 10 per cent to global annual death without addressing it. According to her, the ministry has just launched a Rural Women Energy Security (RUWES) programme to prevent the trend and to create awareness on the dangers of using dirty energy.

French mother held down her 4 years old son while he was raped by his stepfather in a prison visiting room.
A French mother who held down her four-year-old son while he was raped by his stepfather in a prison visiting room was sentenced Wednesday to a maximum 20 years in jail. Her partner, 31-year-old Lionel Barthelemy, who has been jailed since August 2009 for violence, also received the same sentence from the court in Strasbourg, eastern France.
Both Sabrina Bonner, 25, and Barthelemy have admitted to multiple counts of rape and sexual assault of the boy, now eight. Some of the assaults, including the rape in the visiting room at the Toul detention centre in eastern France, had been filmed on a mobile phone.
"The behaviour of Sabrina B. is not even that of an animal towards its child," said prosecutor Gilles Delorme, who also described Barthelemy as "a sadist in the purest form". At the detention centre, Bonner had blindfolded her son and made him kneel on a chair in front of Barthelemy, then held him by the arms as he was raped. The case had raised questions over why prison staff failed to stop, or even notice, an act of such brutality taking place during what was supposed to be a supervised visit to a prisoner serving a sentence for domestic violence, who had been diagnosed as having schizophrenic tendencies. Investigators had found that black bin bags were used to cover the glass window of the door of the visiting room.

There has been a rise in the number of Italians committing suicide as they grapple with money problems amid a recession that is showing little sign of letting up, with 119 taking their lives since the start of 2013, new figures reveal. The figure is higher than the total of 89 for the whole of 2012, according to the study by LinkLab, the centre of socio-economic research at Link Campus University in Rome. The numbers show a "worrying escalation in suicides for economic reasons" over the course of the year, the study said, with 13 deaths in September and 16 in October.
Although victims came from a variety of professions, notably 45.5 percent were entrepreneurs, while suicides among the unemployed rose from 28 in 2012 to 46 over the past 10 months. People most commonly took their lives because of "spiralling debts" and "sudden loss of employment", the study found. The age group most at risk are those between 45 and 64, and although numbers have risen in all areas of Italy, most of the cases have occurred in the north-east. The figures also highlight the increase in attempted suicides, which so far in 2013 have reached 59.
