International Day of Education: Need for Increased Investment in Education

The National Association of Seadogs (Pyrates Confraternity) joins the rest of the world in marking the International Day of Education. This year's commemoration, only the third since a United Nations resolution created the anniversary in December 2018, comes amidst the second wave of a viral pandemic which has wreaked untold havoc on all facets of human existence, including education. 

Before the advent of the Coronavirus pandemic, global education was experiencing mixed fortunes in all ramifications - enrolment, quality, inclusivity, and equity. According to the United Nations, by this time last year, about 260 million children and youth were out of school, with over 600 million children and adolescents unable to read or solve basic mathematical problems.

Rekindling Nigeria’s Anti-Corruption Fight: Options for Fresh Strategy

PRESS RELEASE

Corruption is often the difference between the flourishing wealth with stability of nations and the crippling poverty with prevalent entropy in others. It has a major impact on the effectiveness or otherwise of institutional frameworks and a sine qua non of the moral and ethical direction of society. Corruption is a major threat to building a better world; one which thrives on meritocracy and guarantees equal access to resources and opportunities, significantly instilling public trust in public institutions and officials.

Terrorists Massacre 43 Zabarmari Rice Farmers

PRESS RELEASE

The news of the gruesome murder, by terrorists, of 43 farmers on rice fields at Zabarmari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State in North Eastern Nigeria, is shocking and saddening.

Saturday's attack, the latest in a seemingly endless cycle of murders in the north east especially, and in other parts of Nigeria, represents one of the most barbaric mass executions since the beginning of the insurgency. This unchecked rampage of terrorists poses a continuing challenge to the Nigerian State and its security organs in combating the menace. The situation is increasingly becoming one of despair, with no solution in sight as swathes of territory are daily coming under the control of marauding Boko Haram terrorists and other sundry armed bandits.
