President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the brain drain in the continent is affecting provision of quality medical healthcare.
In his speech at the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the African Medical Centre of Excellence (AMCE), a hospital project that aims to transform the healthcare sector in the West African sub-region, Buhari said the “flight of doctors and nurses to other continents” and inadequate medical infrastructure have created poor access to quality healthcare and increased death rates from diseases such as diabetes and cancer in Africa.

He said; “Cardiovascular ailments, cancers and hematological disorders have increasingly become matters of concern to public healthcare. These ailments are now the highest contributors to non-communicable disease (NCD) mortalities, representing more than 81 percent of all NCD deaths in West Africa.
“The World Health Organisation projects that deaths on the African continent attributable to cancer and diabetes are expected to rise over the next 10 years. The rising NCD burden coupled with inadequate medical infrastructure on the continent threatens the future of our people.
“This problem is further exacerbated by the significant brain drain experienced by the continent. The flight of doctors and nurses to other continents has resulted in a significant gap between the required treatments for NCDs and the available treatments and care.“The above challenges combine to create a regional health market with poor access to critical services and low perception of quality of care available.’’

Buhari expressed hope of a stronger partnership with the private sector helping to improve health facilities on the continent. He further stated that the AMCE represents a return to fundamentals, and the understanding that there is no African development agenda without able-bodied Africans to execute our vision of transformation Buhari added;
“The success of the AMCE will pave the way for future investments and partnerships in the sector while raising the local standard of healthcare and providing a blueprint for quality of services required to address Nigeria’s and Africa’s healthcare and economic challenges.“The AMCE represents a return to fundamentals, and the understanding that there is no African development agenda without able-bodied Africans to execute our vision of transformation.”

Shaquille O’Neal Says He Doesn’t Feel Sorry For Kanye West: “That’s What Happens When You Put All Your Business On Social Media”
Earlier this week, Shaquille O’Neal was asked about co-parenting and his thoughts on Kim and Kanye’s very public divorce.
While speaking on ‘The Big Podcast With Shaq,’ he made it clear that he would never put his business on social media, nor would he “embarrass” his exes.
Shaq stated, “It’s not about having issues. It’s just, I run my life on the PPL principles. You protect, you provide, and you love.”
He continued, “Even if we’re fighting I’m not going to embarrass her amongst the world. Even if we’re in an argument, no. Hell no.” Shaq went on to explain, “If they felt a certain way and they wanted to do that, I understand they could do that but I wouldn’t do that.”
When his co-hosts mentioned the “narrative” used to describe Kanye, he added, “That’s what happens when you put all your business on social media. So I don’t want to hear it now. Don’t try and clean it up now because you started it.”
“When you give your information to a million people, you gon’ have a million different meta babies come out on what they thought,” he expressed. “So I don’t want to hear ‘It’s a narrative.’ That’s the narrative that you’re putting out.
Commenters responded and said, “True. A lot of celebrities should be like that.” Another person stated, “Nahhh, most of the time he’s defending the initial narrative that was put out by media saying he’s crazy.”

Alexis Skyy Says Woman Who Alleges She Was Scammed Has Refused Refund Three Times
A woman named Jumeika Davis alleges Alexis Skyy scammed her out of $1,150 for a stay at Alexis’ former recovery house used to assist women recovering from plastic surgery.
Davis took the issue to social media, first
making a TikTok explaining that she paid for a premium suite that would allow her to bring someone with her. But she alleges she was told she couldn’t, and the info on the now-deleted site was wrong.
Initially claiming her policy stated “no refund,” Alexis Skyy decided to give Davis her money back through CashApp. While Davis claimed she wanted a refund, she declined the money and returned it to Alexis.
Alexis stated, “Here is my official statement about a business venture I’m no longer attached to. This business had a strict no refund policy, but ultimately, my team and I decided to distribute a FULL REFUND.” She continued, “Our full refund was denied, however, my team and I attempted to make right of this situation.
Davis took to Instagram Live and stated she declined the money because she wanted “justice.” She also alleged Skyy “is a habitual liar” and “scammer.”
Davis went on to say that she plans to go to court, insinuating she would file a lawsuit against Alexis.

Bill Cosby’s Spokesperson Defends His Legacy By Calling The Upcoming Documentary ‘We Need To Talk About Cosby’ A “PR Hack”
When it comes to Bill Cosby, his team does everything to prevent his legacy from being tarnished. Currently, the team is working overtime ahead of a new four-part documentary, ‘We Need To Talk About Cosby,’ airing on January 30th. The documentary by stand-up comedian and TV host W. Kamau Bell, details the downfall of Bill. He was once portrayed as America’s Dad, in his role as Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show, before his image was changed due to being exposed for alleged acts of sexual assault.
The documentary premiering on Showtime is what Bill’s spokesperson calls a “PR hack,” according to People in a statement made on Wednesday. “Let’s talk about Bill Cosby. Mr. Cosby has spent more than 50 years standing with the excluded; made it possible for some to be included; standing with the disenfranchised, and standing with those women and men who were denied respectful work because of race and gender … within the expanses of the entertainment industries.”
The statement continues, “Let’s talk about Bill Cosby. Mr. Cosby continues to be the target of numerous media that have, for too many years, distorted and omitted truths … intentionally. Despite media’s repetitive reports of allegations against Mr. Cosby, none have ever been proven in any court of law.” Bill’s court cases have been interesting to follow along. If you recall his 2018 case, Bill was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault after Andrea Constand said he had drugged her and sexually assaulted her in his Elkins Park, Pa., home in 2004. Ultimately Bill was sentenced to three to 10 years for the crime.
However, he maintains his innocence. His spokesperson called out the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court, adding, “Let’s talk about Bill Cosby. In June 2021, the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court released Mr. Cosby, and the court’s Chief Justice defined the Pennsylvania Montgomery County District Attorney’s behavior as reprehensible.”
Roommates, do you think Bill Cosby’s image is under attack?
