These are not the best of times in Nigeria. 

Long before July 21, 2016, when the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, officially confirmed that the country was ‘technically in recession,’ it had been an arduous battle for survival for citizens, organizations and governments at all tiers.

THE Boko Haram video of the Chibok girls that emerged last week reveals that quite a number of the girls are still alive, and the terror group’s leadership is demanding that the girls be swapped with its fighters in the detention of the Nigerian military.
