LAGOS AIDS WALK!!!


Good news!!!! There’s a ‘Lagos Aids Walk’ coming up! I’m excited because i love activism especially when it is about health issues! And yes, I’m attending!
Obviously, the event will be about raising awareness about stigmatization and discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and to advocate for support for prevention, care and treatment programs. Sounds like fun…doesn’t it?
Well, the other reason I’m attending is because Kenneth Kaunda will be there as well. THE Kenneth Kaunda you read about in history books from Zambia…so exciting!!!!
If you wanna join in, you have to go to http://www.lagosaidswalk..org to register and then show up at the playing ground opposite LSPDC Estate, Ebute Metta at 9 a.m (21st April)
Governor Fashola, Tinubu, Funke Adeleke (Jenifa), Pastor Ituah Ighodalo and some other entertainers will be attending!
Remember we will be campaigning for ZERO INFECTIONS, ZERO DISCRIMINATION AND ZERO AIDS RELATED DEATHS!!!!!

Year of the Youth!!!


Yesterday, the UN high level meeting for the youth kicked off at the General Assembly in New York. I wish I could have attended that, I have a lot to say about the youth of today and what roles they can play in development. Sadly I’m stuck on writing my dissertation so all I can do is blog about it.

I’m glad they realize how powerful young people are or can be, recent events in the Middle East is proof that the youth can start a revolution. It is important in my opinion to foster mutual cooperation and dialogue among the youths of today.

The meeting is supposed to last only two days and is part of  a series of events that have been organized to mark the International Day of the Youth (12th August).

So far unemployment has been talked about in detail. I will give a report tomorrow on the final call of actions the meeting concludes with!
