Family of first U.S. Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan and hospital reach settlement

Read Time:1 Minute, 42 Second

DALLAS — Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas has reached an agreement with the family of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, who died in October at the medical facility, CBS Dallas reports.

The agreement comes after allegations of wrong-doing, protocols not being followed, and claims that the hospital did not do enough to protect the patient. It has been just over one month since the 42-year-old man from Africa lost his fight with Ebola.

Duncan's sister and nephew were present as the family's attorney announced a multi-faceted agreement, which included a financial settlement and a charitable contribution.

"This has been a tragic loss for the children and the parents," said attorney Les Weisbrod. "We're here today to announce a settlement that will take care of all the children and parents."

Weisbrod said the family's mission was to "raise awareness of preventable medical errors in the U.S." According to Weisbrod, there are approximately 400,000 preventable deaths in the U.S. each year.

The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but Weisbrod says the deal is better than what could have been won by the family had the two sides gone to trial.

The hospital will also setup a charitable fund in memory of Duncan that will provide assistance to victims of Ebola in Africa.

The Duncan family also has expressed interest in a book or movie to highlight Duncan's life and tragic demise.

Duncan first arrived at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on September 25, complaining of Ebola symptoms. But he was sent away after a triage nurse did not effectively communicate his travel history. Duncan returned to the hospital's emergency room two days later, this time showing more serious symptoms. It was only then that he was considered to be a possible Ebola patient.

The hospital has already apologized to Duncan's family for the mistakes that were made, including the initial misdiagnosis.

VIDEO: Singer Eddie Kenzo, journalist get physical at press conference for being called gay

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 7 Second

Singer Eddie Kenzo of the "Sitya loss" fame has been involved in a physical scuffle climaxed by serious exchange of fists with a journalist attached to Dembe FM-Isaac Katende alias Kasuku Kuku Wazabanga.

It all started when Kasuku made some allegations that were not taken in good faith by the singer who yanked him to his feet and sent him a couple of jabs before he fumed out of the venue.

This all happened at a press conference that was organised by Kenzo at centenary park (Laftaz comedy lounge) on Thursday morning.

Eddie Kenzo who had called the press to announce preparations for his Sitya Loss Nice and Lovely concert that is slated for 19th September at Kati Kati grounds, started by scolding the media and journalists for writing negative news about artistes hence suffocating their chances to shine on the international stage.

“If you want us to represent you worldwide, why don’t you stop the negativity?” Kenzo said, adding:” The press people have always written about me not knowing English but have moved to over 20 countries overseas representing Uganda, where are the artistes who know English? They have also reported about me being gay which is not true.”

“I never went to school but have learnt English from the people that I associate with, you should at least be thankful that I can express myself in English." Kenzo scoffed.

Events would have gone as planned had Dembe Fm presenter desisted from taking the floor to hurl a number of observations as well as questions.

“I will say this on behalf of my fellow journalists; you musicians will not criticize our work. For the past one year, Ugandan media has been writing good stuff about you (Kenzo) but you can’t accept. When I go to the club and find Dr Jose Chameleon drunk and helplessly down on the floor, why would I go back and write that I found chameleon standing.

Kasuku went ahead and said that: "The press conference was announced to start at 10:30, when we reached here, the place was empty; Kenzo came at midday and still sat aside. He then expects us to write what we didn’t observe?"

Kasuku then swtiched Eddy Kenzo's "anger lights" on by stating that in 2011 when he was still working for Star TV on the Kasuku live show, Eddie Kenzo paid him (Kasuku) not to play songs of another artist- Big Eye.

The statement by Kasuku was not taken in good faith by the singer who yanked him to his feet and pummelled him before he fumed out of the venue.

His manager only identified as cox came back and addressed the journalists saying Kenzo was insulted by being called gay to the
extent that he lost his cool. “I on behalf of Eddy Kenzo apologise to the public on behalf of him.” Cox said.

Utility

This is not the first time that Kasuku is being beaten by artistes, or even their relatives, it specifically comes after Jose Chameleon's wife Daniella Mayanja sneaked in his office and slapped him across the face in December 2012 for allegedly spreading false and malicious rumours about her husband's pecuniary matters.

The table that Kenzo used as a jumping point to land on Kasuku before thumping him was left broken and the place messed up. Photo by Micheal Kakumirizi

Ebola: Dennis Akagha battles social stigma

0 0
Read Time:4 Minute, 39 Second

Following our exclusive interview last week with Dennis Akagha who survived the Ebola virus after losing his would-be wife, Justina Ejelonu, to the deadly disease, the young man is still in the news. What is it this time, you may ask?

Even as Dennis has been declared free of EDV, he is still a victim of social stigmatisation.  This has isolated him from the society since the last couple of weeks as people still refuse to socialise with him, making it difficult to get some of his daily needs. But the young man is attracting positive international attention.

Dennis Akagha and Late Justina Ejelonu

His survival and humaneness displayed while nursing his Ebola stricken spouse impressed many. Now, the international media and some agencies are after him for interviews and social events after he exclusively recounted his moving story to us last Saturday.

Denis was the fiance of Justina Ejelonu, the nurse at First Consultant Hospital in Lagos who contracted the Ebola disease after attending to Patrick Sawyer, the American-Liberian who wickedly brought the disease to Nigeria. Justina was a graduate nurse and was just employed by First Consultant.

She was two months pregnant and her first patient on her first day on duty was Patrick Sawyer. She contracted the disease, suffered miscarriage and died at the quarantine centre in Yaba, Lagos. Denis attending to her while she was sick and even at the centre where she suffered neglect.

He too caught the virus days later but was one of those who survived and he told us his best-selling story last Saturday.

In another chat with Saturday Vanguard this week, Dennis lamented how he is being stigmatised by friends, neighbours and customers adding that living with the social stigma was frustrating.

“I am lonely and bored now, people don’t come to me any more. Even  my usual friends before the incidence, are keeping me at arm’s length. They don’t believe I am free of the virus. I have never been so lonely in life. Living with the social stigma is one terrible thing,” Dennis cried.

But he has become a much sought-after man by both international and local media.  According to a close source,  CNN, Al-Jazeera, e-News among others as well as local journalists desirous of getting headlines are after him.
Agencies and donors have also established contacts with Dennis with some of them offering one assistance or the other. Right now, Dennis may be on a journey to a redefined person with some consolation.

As at press time, two international donors have indicated their readiness to support Dennis both financially and morally. According to a close source, the donors will assist him in making the dream of immortalising late Justina come through. Dennis had recently said that he would set up a non-for-profit organisation to immortalise his late fiancee and also to champion the campaign on preventive measures against Ebola virus.

While Dennis battles the emotional plague left by Ebola, Nigerians particularly those who have been following the story rationalised that lack of adequate care by medical personnel on Ebola patients could be one of the reasons why patients run away from the isolation centers.

Joseph Adebambo, a Lagos-based dentist called on medical personnel to rise up to the challenge to save lives. “After reading the story in your paper (Saturday Vanguard) I was close to tears. I want to believe Justina could have survived the crisis if there was adequate care. To me, it seemed medical personal did not have enough protective measures in going any extra-mile to do what they are supposed to do,” Adebambo said.

Kennie said:
This brave and compassionate young man’s account of what goes on inside the Yaba Ebola treatment facility seems to be the only independent assessment of the condition inside there. Before now, all the stories about the “great efforts” towards containing EVD are all coming from Federal and LASG officials. The story gave an insight to what is going on in the treatment center.”

Grace Notibe reacted thus: “She passed through this mess in spite of millions of naira (FG announced N1.9b) claimed to have been earmarked and praises are being heaped on GEJ, FG, Onyebuchi, Fashola and LASG for taking care of Ebola victims. There is God ooo”

“A touching story. Thank God for His mercies, your life was spared and I believe God has a purpose for that. I praise God for you,” another reader said.

Joris Bronen in his comment posted online said:

”May God be praised, nothing can change our faith. God comes first in our life. The death of his wife-to-be shows how careless Nigeria doctors always act. They don’t attend to patients promptly. The American survived because they gave proper care to the Ebola patient.

Our leaders can travel to Germany, France, UK, USA for medical attention with the Citizen’s tax’s but can not provide good healthcare system for Nigerians.”

Kola Ayegbayo said:

”Oh! my brother, I can’t even finish reading the story. I was shocked. May her gentle soul rest in peace.”

Chinwendu Grace
God of Grace is at work.  May the soul of Justina rest in peace, Amen. I wonder why Nigerians and West Africans are not calling for those deceitful men of God to lay their hands on Ebola patients

Boko Haram: FG gets 7-day ultimatum to prosecute Sheriff

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 0 Second

Lagos-based fiery lawyer, Femi Falani, has given the Federal Government seven days to prosecute the former Borno State Governor, Senator Ali Modu Sherriff, for allegedly sponsoring Boko Haram or face his wrath.

The human rights lawyer made it clear that he would personally apply for an order or mandamus for Sherriff and others to be investigated and be prosecuted after the expiration of the week-long ultimatum.

Ali Modu Sherrif

The senior lawyer said he was miffed that Sherriff had used his closeness to the Presidency the security agencies have failed to investigate and prosecute him and other sponsors of terrorism in the country since the directive was given in 2012 by the same Presidency.

He alleged: “Owing to the connection of Alhaji Sheriff with the Presidency the security agencies have failed to implement the directives of the Federal Government which were handed down since May 2012.

Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, insisted that Sherriff could not extricate himself from the activities of the group, having been identified with individuals who played key role in the formation and spread of the virulent group.

Falana, who decried Sherriff’s denial of non-involvement with the group, said there was enough evidence from the reports of committees raised by the Federal Government on the sect to prove that the former governor had a hand in the dastardly activities of the group.

The lawyer chided the former governor over his claim, saying that he should explain to Nigerians the basis of the appointment of Alhaji Buji Foi, a Boko Haram leader as the Commissioner of Religious Affairs in Borno State.

Falana said it was curious that Buji Foi, who resigned from the Sheriff government and joined the Boko Haram sect,was extra-judicially killed after his arrest by the soldiers.

He also said that as the Chief Security Officer in Borno State at the material time, the ex-governor should open up on the circumstances of the extra judicial killing of Muhammed Yusuff and his father-in-law, Alhaji Kuba.

The lawyer pointed out that before the latest revelation by Stephen Davis, the Goodluck Jonathan Administration had set up the Ambassador Usman Galtimari Panel to investigate the genesis of the insurgency in the North East, which traced the origin of Boko Haram to politicians, who used them as thugs for political purposes.

Quoting one of the recommendations of reached by the Presidential Panel, Falana wrote: “The Report traced the origin of private militias in Borno State in particular, of which Boko Haram is an offshoot, to politicians who set them up in the run-up to the 2003 general elections. “The militias were allegedly armed and used extensively as political thugs.

After the elections and having achieved their primary purpose, the politicians left the militias to their fate since they could not continue funding and keeping them employed. With no visible means of sustenance, some of the militias gravitated towards religious extremism, the type offered by Mohammed Yusuf.

Recommendation
It recommended that the government should direct the security agencies to beam their light on some politicians who sponsored, funded and used the militia groups that later metamorphosed into Boko Haram and bring them to justice.

Comment
Government accepts this recommendation and directs the National Security Adviser to coordinate investigation of the kingpins and sponsors to unravel the individuals and groups  involved.”
In 2006, Sheriff told the whole world that he was not bothered by criticisms of his administration for non-performance because less than 5 per cent of Borno people were literate.

How to prepare for Hajj exercise

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 7 Second

The importance of adequate preparation for Hajj cannot be over-emphasized because it minimizes physical discomforts and rigours associated with the journey as well as helps to save time and lot of money involved in in the Hajj exercise so as not to go in vain.

Therefore, in order to achieve adequate preparation for Hajj, an intending pilgrim must start preparation as early as possible, to avoid last minute rush, since getting information for Hajj through the officials and obtaining document, medical checks etc., consume a great deal of time.

Four to five months ahead of the actual date of departure is not too much to prepare for Hajj.

Furthermore, in addition to how to achieve adequate preparation for Hajj, an intending pilgrim must do the following among others. (1) Must have met the conditions of Hajj such as (i) Islam: be a practice Muslim (that is, must have been performing the first four pillars of Islam.

It must be noted that, Hajj is not meant for non-Muslim, like wise unserious Muslim that involve in acts which nullifies Iman and who is not ready to make sincere taubah (repentance) before embarking on the holy journey.

Unfortunately, with experience of the writer, it is disheartening that a number of people that embark on Hajj more importantly from Nigeria in recent time lack this vital requirement, heedless of the fact that faith is one of the conditions of the validity of deeds and its approval in Islam etc.

He must make necessary provisions for the Hajj: Consciousness and fear Allah in his actions and speech must override every other thing.

He must perform the exercise for Allah’s sake and all expenses must be paid out of money obtain through hallal means. He must make sincere taubah before embarking on the holy journey as well as learn how to be patient and forgive others.

He should perform correct Istikhara before embarking on the journey. Seeking adequate knowledge on how to perform Hajj and Umrah ritual is important.

This could be done through reading of books, attending seminars, be familiar with all Hajj and Umrah aspects such as recitation of Talbiyya, du’a (invocation), place of rituals, and adabs such as etiquettes of travelling, etiquette of boarding any means of transportation; entering a town; with holy land of Makkah and Madinah among others.

Paying all outstanding debts and returning all the articles left with you to their owners; fulfill your promises to others and correct all wrongs; writing of wills among other things.

Eleven passenger planes are missing from an airport in Libya.

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 8 Second

In early August 2014, some North African bloggers began to spread stories that several commercial airliners were missing from the Tripoli International threat levelAirport during or shortly after the facility was taken over by Zintan militia forces earlier in the summer. Later that month translations of the blog posts began to be picked up by news outlets in Western Europe and passed on as fact rather than gossip; by early September those tales of translations of blogs had spread to the United States under the guise of real news.

The use of airplanes as terrorist weapons in 2001 makes it all too easy for us to anticipate their being used that way again. And despite denials from all sides — the airlines who are not missing any planes, the Libyan transport ministry, and the anti-government forces in control of the airport — the tales have found a ready audience among a populace already on edge in anticipation of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

However, there have been no statements from the State Department, the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, or any other authority warning of stolen airliners. The national has not been raised. Algerian and Moroccan military and air defense, already on high alert due to the unrest just across their borders with Libya, would undoubtedly have noticed multiple flights of unidentified passenger aircraft.

Nigeria Federal Govt. blacklists firm for abandoning power project

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 2 Second

Abuja—The Federal Government yesterday wielded the big stick against a contracting firm, Messrs Techno Electrical Engineering Company, as it announced the blacklist of the company and its directors from executing any government project in country.

The company’s crime, according to the Minister of State for Power, Honourable Mohammed Wakil, was its abandonment of electricity project in Ebonyi State for the Engineeering Design, Manufacture, Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of 2X60MVA, 132/33KV at Amasiri and 2X132KV Line Bays Extension at Abakaliki after it had collected 15% mobilisation fee.

According to Hon. Mohammed Wakil, the Federal Executive has approved for the reaward of the contract for the Engineeering Design, Manufacture, Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of 2X60MVA, 132/33KV at Amasiri and 2X132KV Line Bays Extension at Abakaliki for the Transmission Company of Nigeria.

He said  the new contract was  reawarded in favour of Messrs North China Power Engineering limited and NCEP (Nig) Limited in the sum of $5,835,368.47 (five million, eight hundre and thirty five thousand, three hundred and sixty eight United States Dollars and forty seven cents) payable at the prevailing exchange rate at the time of payment plus N505,788,083.58 (Five hundred and five million, seven hundred and eighty eight thousand, eighty three Naira, fifty eight kobo) inclusive of N67,211,298.58 (sixty seven million, two hundred and eleven thousand, two hundred and ninety eight Naira, fifty eight kobo) for five percent contingency with a completion period of 24 months.

The project, according to the minister, is designed to boost power supply to Ebonyi State and parts of Cross River and enhance the socio economic development of the states.

He explained that funding for the project would be sourced from Eurobond loan, the 2014 appropriation and in the unutilized letter of credit earlier established for the terminated project to commence implementatiin of the project.

The federal executive council  also approved the award of contract for the design and construction of four 60 Ton Bollard Pull Marine Tug Boats in favour of Messrs Depasa Marine International (Nigeria) limited in the sum of €42,968,864.70 ( fourty two million, nine hundred and aixty eight thousand, eight hundred and sixty four euro, seventy cents) equivalent of N8,778,423,042.28 (eight billion, seven hundred and seventy eight million, four hundred and twenty three thousand, fourty two Naira and twenty eight kobo) inclusive of all taxes with a completion period of 24 months.

The project, according to the Minister of Transport, Senator Idris Umar is expected to generate 97 job opportunities for both professionals and non professionals during its execution and about 112 direct and indirect job opportunities when in full operation.

Meanwhile the Federal Executive Council also  ratified the National Integrated Infrastructure Master Plan, which is expected to be executed at a  total of $3.05 trillion (N485 trillion) over 30 years.

It would be recalled that President Goodluck Jonathan had in July 2012 approved that the National Planning Commission coordinate the preparation of the NIIMP for the country.

The plan which will be implemented over a period of 30 years from 2014 to 2043, will be implemented in three phases. The first five years phase between now and 2018 will require $166.1billion for implementation.

The plan will amongst others things address the lack of linkages in the infrastructure sector. It focuses on core infrastructure, including energy (power and oil and gas), transport (roads, rail, ports and airports), housing, water and Information and Communication Technology.

Other infrastructure classes include agriculture, mining, social infrastructure, vital registration and security.

El-Rufai to sue Ihejirika over Boko Haram Commander claims

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 12 Second

A chieftain of the of the opposition All Progressives Congress [APC], Nasir El-Rufai, is suing Nigeria’s former Chief of Army Staff, Azubuike Ihejirika, over claims the former is a commander of the terrorist Boko Haram sect. Mr. Ihejirika, a retired army General, had claimed in an interview with a newspaper that Mr. El-Rufai is a commander of the deadly Boko Haram sect which is murdering innocent Nigerians and overrunning communities in northeast Nigeria. The former army chief’s allegation followed a Facebook post by Mr. El-Rufai quoting an Australian negotiator, Stephen Davis, who had named Mr. Ihejirika as a major sponsor of the sect…

The Australian negotiator claims he had related with the Boko Haram since 2006, and worked with past Nigerian presidents and recently with the President Goodluck Jonathan administration where he came close to freeing the over 200 kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls in Borno. In an interview with Arise TV in Uk, the negotiator said leaders of the sect briefed him that the former army chief, alongside a former governor of the Borno state, Ali Modu Sheriff, funded their operations. Mr. El-Rufai posted excerpts of the interview on his Facebook page and subsequently attracted the wrath of the former army chief. In an interview published by the Vanguard newspaper, Mr. Ihejirika described Mr.El-Rufai as a commander of Boko Haram. “People cannot make such outrageous allegations without evidence about others and be allowed to walk free,” Mr. El-Rufai said, in justification of the court case he plans to kickstart later in the week. Grievous allegations, but government won’t react Mr. Davis based his claims on intelligence he purportedly gathered from Boko Haram top commanders, and did not offer verifiable evidence.
 
Some Nigerian civil society activists have since called for a thorough investigations of the negotiator’s claims.
Despite the grievous allegations by the Australian negotiator, the Nigerian government has remained quiet on the matter. The defence headquarters, where Mr. Ihejirika served untill his removal in January, declined to comment on the allegations. When contacted, the Defence spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, a Major General, referred PREMIUM TIMES to the “National Security Adviser, NSA, and political authorities.”
Both the NSA and the president’s office also declined to comment. Phone calls rang out unanswered.
Nigeria’s Information Minister, Labaran Maku, also did not respond to phone calls. A high placed military source, however, told PREMIUM TIMES the military hierarchy is not in the mood to investigate the matter arguing that “In cases like this all the structures of government are involved.”

African wake up: GADDAFFI’S LAST FORMAL SPEECH

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 23 Second

In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful…

For 40 years, or was it longer, I can’t remember, I did all I could to give people houses, hospitals, schools, and when they were hungry, I gave them food. I even made Benghazi into farmland from the desert, I stood up to attacks from that cowboy Ronald Reagan, when he killed my adopted orphaned daughter, he was trying to kill me, instead he killed that poor innocent child. Then I helped my brothers and sisters from Africa with money for the African Union.

I did all I could to help people Understand the concept of real democracy, where people’s committees ran our country. But that was never enough, as some told me, even people who had 10 room homes, new suits and furniture, were never satisfied, as selfish as they were they wanted more. They told Americans and other visitors, that they needed "democracy" and "freedom" never realizing it was a cut throat system, where the biggest dog eats the rest, but they were enchanted with those words, never realizing that in America, there was no free medicine, no free hospitals, no free housing, no free education and no free food, except when people had to beg or go to long lines to get soup.

No, no matter what I did, it was never enough for some, but for others, they knew I was the son of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the only true Arab and Muslim leader we’ve had since Salah-al-Deen, when he claimed the Suez Canal for his people, as I claimed Libya, for my people, it was his footsteps I tried to follow, to keep my people free from colonial domination – from thieves who would steal from us.

Now, I am under attack by the biggest force in military history, my little African son, Obama wants to kill me, to take away the freedom of our country, to take away our free housing, our free medicine, our free education, our free food, and replace it with American style thievery, called "capitalism" ,but all of us in the Third World know what that means, it means corporations run the countries, run the world, and the people suffer.

So, there is no alternative for me, I must make my stand, and if Allah wishes, I shall die by following His path, the path that has made our country rich with farmland, with food and health, and even allowed us to help our African and Arab brothers and sisters.

I do not wish to die, but if it comes to that, to save this land, my people, all the thousands who are all my children, then so be it.
Let this testament be my voice to the world, that I stood up to crusader attacks of NATO, stood up to cruelty, stoop up to betrayal, stood up to the West and its colonialist ambitions, and that I stood with my African brothers, my true Arab and Muslim brothers, as a beacon of light.

When others were building castles, I lived in a modest house, and in a tent. I never forgot my youth in Sirte, I did not spend our national treasury foolishly, and like Salah-al-Deen, our great Muslim leader, who rescued Jerusalem for Islam, I took little for myself…

In the West, some have called me "mad", "crazy", but they know the truth yet continue to lie, they know that our land is independent and free, not in the colonial grip, that my vision, my path, is, and has been clear and for my people and that I will fight to my last breath to keep us free, may Allah almighty help us to remain faithful and free".

My brothers and sisters let's start loving more of each other and stop killing each other cause Europe America and other western world will never want to see sunshine of Africans.
