Bashir El-Rufai, one of the sons of Kaduna state governor, has responded to Muslims criticizing him over his loved-up photo with his wife, Nwakego Kazaure.
He shared the loved-up photos of both of them on his social media handles. Some Muslims felt the photos were ‘Inappropriate’ and called him out for them. Read here.
Well, Bashir has replied his critics. His response reads
”If my pictures with my wife does not sit well with some & due to the various unsolicited opinions, I’d just like to use this opportunity to say that they are very stupid & if there’s any other way these pictures can make them feel worse than they already do, please let me know.”
It’s has been 16yrs I tested positive for HIV – Gay activist, Bisi Alimi says as he celebrates World AIDS Day
Nigerian Gay activist, Bisi Alimi is celebrating World AIDS Day 16 years after he tested positive for HIV.
In his post, he said the first four years after he was diagnosed with HIV was tough for him because of the stigma and the discrimination he faced at the time.
According to him, he’s been able to overcome all of that following the support and love from the people that matter to him.
Sharing a photo of his blood sample being extracted from his arm, he wrote:
On this World AIDS Day, I want to share this again. It’s has been 16yrs I tested positive for HIV. 16yrs I have been living with the virus. The first 4yrs was hard and tough for me, not because of the virus, but because of the stigma and the discrimination and shame. I look back at those 16yrs and where I am today and there is no better way to say this; the resilience and support and love of the people that matter has kept me alive, kept loving, and kept me inspired.
If you are living with HIV, please know that it is no more a death sentence and you can actually live positively with HIV.
Finally, I hope you will acknowledge and appreciate that you are all you have and this life is a gift and what others say or think about you is not your business, but theirs.
Happy World AIDS Day
Broken hearted lady reveals how she spent on four guys but was later dumped
A broken hearted lady has taken to the microblogging platform, Twitter to narrate how she spent huge sums of money on four guys but was later dumped.
In a tweet, the lady revealed that she is currently broke after spending on those guys for nothing. She said that the only thing that matters to her is a man who is willing to spoil her and love her as she is.
She wrote; “I’m broke and I remember how stupid I’ve been. I remember how I carried 50k that I got from savings and went to see man in Lagos. Bought foodstuff, fuel and DStv sub only for goat to leave me inside house and take another babe to a beach hangout with the 10k he borrowed from me.
Oga switched off his phone and I was stupidly panicking only for him to come back and lie that he fell inside ditch. The lie was so stupid and I was willing to believe him until I saw the babe posting pictures with “Her baby”. I want mad.
Or was it the one I was cooking with my money for and him and his cousin still had efforntery to be telling me rubbish and when he was cheating. Baba go dey fly babe come Abuja but I’d be using my own money to do road trip. I suffered.
Or is it the one I gave 350k because he said he was involved in an accident but Baba disappeared with my money till today and I had to drop out of school. Or is it the one I saw his wedding pictures on Instagram after us spending a weekend that I footed the bills together
Don’t be stupid like me sha because it took a lot for me to finally learn that men would be wicked to you unprovoked. If you don’t have money now, don’t move me abeg. I’m not an independent woman anymore and I want to eat your money. Tainks and God bless.”
She went on to advise her fellow ladies not to fall prey to men like she did.
Beautiful student who collapsed at home on 22nd birthday given just 18 months to live
A female student who collapsed at home on her 22nd birthday has been given just 18 months to live after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Beautuful Amani was rushed to Luton and Dunstable Hospital on April 29, her 22nd birthday, after collapsing at home.
She spent four days there, before being transferred to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square, London, for a biopsy.
She spent a further eight days there, during which time she had numerous scans and surgery which left her with 15 staples in her head.
Due to Covid restrictions, she had to deal with not seeing her family and difficult conversations with medical professionals all by herself.
“Two days later, we were given the news that Amani’s tumour was a grade 4 glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) with H3K27 mutation – which was cancerous and inoperable.” Her dad said.
The tumour, a diffuse midline glioma, is resistant to conventional treatment, with its location being so deep in the brain that doctors concluded surgery was not an option.
Following a biopsy, Amani began the usual treatment protocol for this type of tumor which includes six weeks of radiotherapy followed by low-dose chemotherapy, which she was due to begin in August.
But within weeks an MRI scan revealed the tumour had already grown, and the chemotherapy was stopped.
Doctors then told her she has between 12 to 18 months to live.
Her heartbroken family, from Luton, Bedfordshire, UK, have been battling to raise funds for treatment. They have now spoken of the diagnosis saying it has been “the most gruelling time any of us have ever experienced”.
Her dad, Khuram Liaquat, jetted out to Germany in the midst of the pandemic to collect three months’ worth of an expensive drug that could prolong his daughter’s life.
The drug, known as ONC201, has shown promising results in the treatment of Amani’s disease but it costs £4,000 a month and, if effective, will require long-term use.
According to the dad, the cost for a year’s medication, plus medical consultations is almost £50,000 – more than what Amani’s family can afford.
Her parents set up a JustGiving page to help them fund the life-prolonging treatment for their daughter.
And, to the surprise of her family, the page has raised £100,000 in just 24 hours.
Khuram said: “It was utterly devastating to be advised that Amani’s chemo should be stopped but we were even more determined to fight on.
“Treatment options in the UK for glioblastomas are very limited.
“In discussions with her medical team at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London, we decided the best way forward would be to access a new trial drug, ONC201.”
Khuram added: “The implications of a brain tumour diagnosis are far more wide reaching than one can imagine.
“Amani was studying for her Masters with a view to pursue her dream of becoming a social worker having graduated with a first-class degree in law.
“Her whole life was turned upside down in a matter of a month.
“Her studies were halted, her dreams of a fulfilling career shattered, and her fiancé decided he no longer wanted to go ahead with their planned September wedding.
“Helpless and heartbroken, we have watched our daughter decline physically, neurologically, mentally and emotionally.
“We know through our own research that there are a number of other Phase II drugs, such as Paxalisib and VAL083 which have shown promising results in aggressive glioblastomas.
“Surely patients with such aggressive brain cancers should be able to access these drugs on a compassionate basis at least once standard of care has been completed and shown to be ineffective?
“Very quickly we have had to privately fund the majority of Amani’s lifesaving treatment.
“It’s hard to describe just how frustrating this is and how desperate our situation has felt at times.”
“We have set up an Instagram page, @Fight4Amani, for anyone who is interested in following our journey.”
Khuram, who flew out to Germany to collect an initial three months’ worth of the drug, said: “We will always be forever grateful to everyone who donated and supported our campaign.
“Amani will continue to take it for as long as she can tolerate it.
“But I can’t help but think of other families who, like us, are having to somehow find the money to do this.
“We are all under enough stress without having to coordinate fundraising campaigns for life-prolonging drugs.”
Amani’s parents are now working with the charity, Brain Tumour Research to share their story, in order to help raise awareness of the disease which kills more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer.
