Card image cap

The Executive Director of the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA), Ayisha Osori, says early education is a potent tool in tackling growing misinformation and disinformation in Nigeria.
Ms Osori, while giving opening remarks at the Kwame Karikari Fact-Checking and Research Fellowship, said building a questioning attitude in children would imbue in them a culture of seeking truth from early life.
The fellowship, now in its third year, is a brainchild of West Africa’s verification and fact-checking platform,
Dubawa, under the auspices of the Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism (PTCIJ).
The lawyer cum communication strategist also said inculcating fact-checking into schools’ curriculum would help children discern the rudiments of truth and spur them to verify every information they come across.

About 2.3 million people in Niger are likely to be severely food insecure during this year's lean season because of conflicts, drought and floods, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Between Friday and Monday, more than 10,000 people fled their homes in the western region of Tillaber, following violent attacks by non-state armed groups in Anzourou district, near the border with Mali, the agency said.

Breaking News | Pressure Terrorists To Surrender, CDS Tasks Human Rights Groups

Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor PHOTO: Twitter
The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Lucky Irabor, has appealed to the human rights community to mount on Boko Haram the equal measure of pressure it puts on government forces dealing with terrorism to compel them to drop their weapons and come to the negotiation table. However, while human rights groups say it was not part of their mandate to engage terrorists, the human rights commission advocated intelligence-driven counter-terrorism operations.
According to Irabor, if the rights crusaders take the campaign for human rights to the terror organisations, the conflict will be resolved faster with attendant reduction in casualties.
