• The Continuous Vandalisation of the Second Niger Bridge: Seeking Permanent Solutions

    12 GIU 2024 · Recently, the Nigerian Minister of Works, Dave Umahi, expressed deep concern over the vandalisation going on at the Second Niger Bridge. Umahi's remarks came in the wake of a discovery revealing the vandalization of rail fittings on the bridge. This discovery was brought to light through a viral video circulating on social media. In the video, an individual by name Lord Zeus narrated the wanton destruction of railings on the Bridge, cautioning drivers, particularly during night-time travel, about the potential hazards posed by the compromised structure.

  • Making Rural Dwellings Habitable: Curbing Rural-urban Migration

    9 GIU 2024 · Rural settings offer a sense of tranquility, close community ties, and a connection to nature that appeal to many individuals seeking a simpler way of life.  However, this is as far as the appeal or attractiveness of rural  settings go. This is because life in the rural community is often tempered by the lack of essential services and opportunities,  fewer amenities, limited infrastructure, and a slower pace of life, driving many residents, particularly young people, to migrate to urban areas in search of better prospects. The result is overcrowding, unemployment, and social tensions  in urban areas.  Here, we discuss strategies and challenges of making rural dwellings habitable, and the potential impact on curbing rural-urban migration. The aim was to foster vibrant rural economies, preserve cultural heritage, and mitigate the adverse effects of mass migration on both rural and urban areas.

This plan is purportedly driven by recent developments, particularly the expulsion of these forces from neighboring Niger and Mali. The U.S. and its allies have been forced to move troops out of a number of African countries following coups that brought to power groups eager to distance themselves from Western governments.
