The President of the African Development Bank, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, says Africa is not the source of COVID-19 which was first discovered in Wuhan, China, some two years ago.
The 61-year-old campaigner for equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines globally also said that Africa should not be punished for the Omicron COVID-19 variant and other mutations that occur randomly anywhere in the world.

Adesina stated this in a three-part tweet on Sunday, following the travel ban imposed on Southern African countries by the United Kingdom, the United States, the European Union and some Asian countries as part of an emergency response to the recently-discovered B.1.1.529 strain of COVID-19, first detected in South Africa.
The former Nigerian Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Akinwumi Adesina wrote, “Africa should not be labelled and penalized for COVID-19 variants and mutations that occur randomly elsewhere in the world. Africa is not the source of COVID-19.

“There must be global justice, equity & fairness in access to vaccines. Global vaccine supply system has underserved Africa. Protecting one’s home alone in the midst of a forest fire does not work. Put out the forest fire.
“Africa must accelerate the manufacturing of its own vaccines & set up its own ‘healthcare security defence system’. Africa must no longer outsource health security of its 1.8 billion people to the benevolence of others.”Akinwumi Adesina

My married friend is pregnant for another man but she wants to pin it on her husband – Lady reveals
A lady has taken to social media to share a story of infidelity involving her married friend who got pregnant for another man.
According to the lady known on Twitter as @naSkosana_, the friend told her in confidence that she is carrying another man’s child but she is confused on whether to do abortion or pin the child on her husband.
She said that the woman cried out over not wanting to lose her marriage and she claimed her beliefs go against abortion, so she might end up giving the child to her hubby.
@naSkosana_ also revealed that the husband and wife already have other children together.
The tweet reads; ”I got a call from a friend: “Tebo I’m pregnant and it’s not my husband’s child, please advise. Abort or pin it on the husband? I don’t want to lose my marriage and my beliefs go against abortion”

The revelation sparked off an interactive session in the comment section.
@nokie555 wrote; It’s so funny how these beliefs only become significant after countless immoral activities. So to her adultery is a lesser sin ??
@DlalaChampion; She must tell the husband the truth so that he can leave her in peace
@dr_dotz; And I tell men to test ALL children that are said to be theirs but no, they wanna argue. We see a lot of this from private practice.
@D_Bhekza; She must tell the husband the truth and be at peace with the fact that it’s out there. If she hides the truth, it will out eventually and thi gs will be even worse. Gents are woke these days…. she will live with the consequences of her decisions. Life ke leyo
@mimosameyiwa; Her belief is against abortion but yet she wasn’t thinking about religion when she was being unfaithful in her marriage?
@mizsbosh; Abortion is where she draws the line huh? That woman was playing with her marriage over and over again but she doesn’t want to lose it? What kind of bs is that?
Anyway she should leave that man alone so that another person can love him properly.
Nothing wey you wan preach, we go still dey pop – Young boys react after Pastor Ibiyeomie placed curse on yahoo boys (Video)
A group young Nigerian boys have reacted to the condemnation of internet fraudsters aka Yahoo boys by Pastor David Ibiyeomie of Salvation Ministries.
The pastor had placed curse on yahoo boys during a recent sermon as he noted that what they are doing is evil.
“Let me tell you, these Yahoo boys. Stop! I am a man of God. You kill people everyday. When you ‘Yahoo’ somebody, it is stealing. Don’t quote it anyhow. It is stealing. Most people, all their retirement benefits, you take it and people die. I curse you in the name of Jesus.
“It is a demonic, satanic way of getting money. Which kind of money is that? You are a thief. No matter how you colorize it, you are a thief. You love stealing! I curse the root of it. Do you know how many people you have killed? “Scam kills people. Some people, the whole of their retirement benefit.. You scam them and say you are buying a car. What nonsense? You will get accident with that car!” he said.
The teenagers in a video posted online, reacted by saying that there’s nothing he will preach that will stop them from “popping”. One of boys also mentioned “scam.”
