Report coming from Kaduna confirmed to us that the Kaduna state governor has disclosed his health status this Wednesday in Kaduna.

 

Below statements comes from the official facebook page of the executive governor malam Nasir el’rufai.

 

 

KADUNA UPDATE: Statement on My Recovery from Covid-19

 

 

In the evening of Saturday, 28 March 2020, I was notified that I had tested positive for Covid-19. I immediately made a public disclosure of this sad news and proceeded into isolation under the strict supervision of our healthcare professionals.

I am delighted to report today, that after nearly four weeks of observing a strict medical regime, I have now received the all-clear after two consecutive negative test results.

I thank Almighty Allah for His grace and mercy. I also acknowledge with gratitude the massive outpouring of sympathy, prayers and public support that followed the disclosure of the infection. My family not only went through the trauma of potentially losing a member, but also the risk of being infected as well. The entire family has been supportive as usual, while my many friends and colleagues from all over the world have sent their prayers and best wishes.

 

 

I wish to thank the diligent medical personnel of our Ministry of Health and the Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital who managed my case for their dedicated and professional care.

It was cheering to see the determined efforts of our Covid-19 Task Force chaired by the Deputy Governor, the officials of our Ministry of Health ably led by the Commissioner and our security/enforcement agencies, to manage and contain the spread of Covid-19 in the state.

 

 

I wish to acknowledge our Deputy Governor, Dr. Hadiza Balarabe, for her reassuring leadership of our team in my absence. In this trying period, our senior officials have demonstrated admirable commitment and the flexibility to provide governance in circumstances that are so different from the old normal. The commitment, competence and capabilities displayed by the Kaduna State Government in my four-week absence is clear evidence that we have a public service we can all be proud of.

I am relieved by my recovery. With the privilege of life, sound health, and the support and prayers of our citizens, I will continue to lead the Kaduna State Government’s efforts to ensure that as few of our people as possible get infected by Covid-19, and that those who do can receive adequate and timely care and treatment. Our emphasis is rightly on prevention because it is the prudent thing to do to save lives, given the limited capacity of our health system.

 

 

I am delighted by the recovery of four other Covid-19 cases who were discharged last week which was followed yesterday with the discharge of a fifth patient. On Monday, we received the sad news of three more positive cases in Kaduna State. They will receive the best care that our dedicated health professionals can muster and we wish them speedy recovery from Covid-19.

 

 

We must all work hard to ensure that we keep Covid-19 out of Kaduna State. We have lower infection rates than expected due to stringent measures we imposed in our state, but we cannot let our guards down. We are in dangerous times. This disease is a threat to our humanity, our lives and livelihoods. As someone that has experienced it, I will not wish it on my worst enemy.

 

We must reiterate that an infected person can show no symptoms as I did, for up to two weeks, while unknowingly infecting others close to him or even through casual contact. That is why mixing with many people is not a good idea. While four of every five infected persons show mild symptoms like headache, fever and cough and recover fully, there is evidence worldwide that older people and those with pre-existing health challenges like hypertension and diabetes are particularly at greater risk of dying if they get the Covid-19 infection.

We must therefore do everything to avoid exposure and prevent the spread of this disease in our towns and villages. We must now make the sacrifices of enhanced domestic hygiene, regular hand-washing with soap, staying at home and avoiding crowds to defeat this disease.

Let me conclude by informing the citizens of Kaduna State that I have issued another amendment to the Quarantine Regulations requiring everyone in the State to wear a face mask when going out of the home or workplace for any reason. The State Government is going to make these masks available free to the poor and vulnerable groups, and encourage everyone that can afford it to get their neighborhood tailor to sew cloth masks for their use. This will help protect them, their loved ones and everyone else from the spread of this disease.

 

 

Once again, we appeal to everyone to stay at home, observe social distancing, avoid gatherings of more than 10 people, and wash our hands with soap and water regularly.

Stay home, stay safe, save lives!

God Bless and Protect Kaduna State.

God Bless and Protect the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Sultan Urges Muslims To use Facebook, Skype, YouTube,Zoom As He Declare, No Ramadan lectures & congregational prayers this year.

Sultan Urges Muslims To use Facebook, Skype, YouTube,Zoom As He Declare, No Ramadan lectures & congregational prayers this year.

 

 

From AbdulGafar Alabelewe, Kaduna

As Muslims begin Ramadan fasting this week, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has declared that, there will be no Ramadan lecture sessions and congregation prayers in Mosques.

 

The Sultan told Nigerian Muslims that, this year’s Ramadan is one with a difference, in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, hence everyone should pray at home with their families, as Muslims cannot afford to be reckless with their lives.

Sultan in a statement issued through the Secretary-General of JNI, Dr Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, therefore, recommended that Muslim faithful should in addition to recitation of the Holy Qur’an, listen to Ramadan lecture through internet and other virtual means.

 

 

 

While noting that, most Muslim countries have unanimously agreed to suspend public religious congregation, in order to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, which he said, in actual sense is in tandem with the teachings of the Prophet, Sultan said, “As Muslims, we are not however oblivious of the fact that death is inevitable, but we must not be reckless with our lives, Q2:195 is a clear testimony to that effect.”

 

The statement read in parts that: “Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) under the leadership of His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, felicitates in advance with the Muslim Ummah on the forthcoming month of Ramadan. Unequivocally, Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an, the month of Du’a (supplication) and Dhikr (Allah’s remembrance), the month of Zakah and Sadaqah (giving poor dues and charity), and the month of Qiyamul-Layl (standing in the night for prayers).

 

“But due to the overwhelming eruption of the novel COVID-19 pandemic, the Ummah’s enthusiasm needs to be reinvigorated as against what obtains of palpable fear over the pandemic outbreak.

 

“It should be made known that all Salawatun-nawafil (optional and nonobligatory prayers), including Taraweeh, are originally preferred to be observed at home, even though it is Mustahabb (desirable) to observe it in congregation.

 

“To sum it up, there will not be the annual Tafsir sessions and no congregational Taraweeh in mosques, until when situation permits. We should therefore pray with our families at home and stay safe.

 

 

 

“Medical experts and mid-course Ulama’s advice on COVID-19 should be religiously adhered to. We must collectively shun the vituperations of extremists in thoughts and actions on any matter, as warned by the Prophet (PBUH).

 

“Most often, extreme position on matters of religion creates more dissent views and counteractions, which in the final analysis generates acrimony and animosity rather than solutions, and for all intents and purposes that isn’t the essence of the Islamic faith!

 

“Despite the challenges of physical and social distancing, Tafsir and other religious teachings could continue using various information technology (IT) platforms, such as Facebook, Skype, YouTube, Zoom, etc., to live stream preaching sessions. Reliable information and communication technology (ICT) professionals could be consulted for proper guidance.

 

“It is on this basis that the JNI calls on the Ulama’ to as usual make the fear of Allah their watch word, bearing in mind that knowledge is a trust from Allah and shall be accounted for on the Day of reckoning, thus it should be handled with the utmost caution it deserves.

 

“Muslims should fervently pray for an end to the myriad challenges bedeviling the world and Nigeria in particular, and to also seek Allah’s interventions for better well-being and prosperity.” Sultan said.

 

Speaking on the economic effects of the lockdown on the fasting Muslims, Sultan called on the wealthy Muslims to increase their generosity during the Ramadan and extend hands to those in need, to ameliorate their sufferings by providing them with food and other necessities.

 

According to him, “This is a Ramadan with a difference as most people will be under lockdown. Hence, they will certainly be in dire need of assistance, because of the economic realities and the attendant suffocating inflationary trends. Our spirit of generosity should be fully activated in higher proportion so as to ameliorate the sufferings of the poor in our midst by providing them with food and other necessities.

 

“In this regard, the JNI calls upon those who have since planned for this year’s Umrah (lesser pilgrimage), to channel those resources to help the less privileged as the Umrah cannot be possible in the current global pandemic reality.

 

“The Prophet (PBUH) was reported to be the most generous of mankind and he used to be at the peak of his generosity during Ramadan. Expectedly, as our role model we should be seen to be doing exactly like Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

 

“Bearing in mind that the month of Ramadan is fast approaching, we call on Governments at all levels to assist in making life bearable to the downtrodden. Likewise, business enterprises and their owners should review downward prices of goods and services – as an act of Sadaqah (charity) such that every ordinary man could afford.

 

“In this regard, worthy of commendation is the Nigerian business community, philanthropists as well as the business moguls who dished out colossal amount of money to support the federal and some state governments, at this critical economic period. The gesture remains very indelible to the JNI and we pray that they be compensated accordingly by Allah.

Boko Haram factional leader, Abubakar Shekau Set to surrender

The Boko Haram factional leader, Abubakar Shekau, is considering a ceasefire with the Nigerian government; credible intelligence sources in the North-East Theatre of Operations told The Vanguard.

 

 

 

The source told the newspaper that Mr Shekau had started making frantic efforts to seek a soft landing as he prepares to surrender.

 

According to the source, the Boko Haram leader has started reaching out to some International Non-Governmental Organizations for a deal with the Nigerian government towards granting him amnesty.

 

“I think the end of Boko Haram is coming close as Abubakar Shekau has been making overtures through proxies for a soft landing for him to surrender to the Nigerian authorities.

 

“He has been desperate about it, and the intensity is occasioned with the avalanche of coordinated operations launched in recent times against the group, especially in the Timbuktu triangle,” the source said.

 

The source further added that in recent times the Boko Haram group had suffered casualties that put the group in a tight corner.

 

According to him, the gap is closing in on Abubakar Shekau as it stands.

 

“The series of coordinated attacks on their hideouts has made it impossible for any escape as the military has been attacking from several flanks, and any attempt to escape now is virtually impossible.”

 

“The Chief of Army Staff has given an order that Abubakar Shekau is captured alive. The Chief has been in Borno State and there is a likelihood that he is going to be around for a long period given his body language of not leaving anything to chance in this critical operation,” the source added.

 

The newspaper also gathered that the Boko Haram group had also reached out to some International Non-Governmental Organizations to seek a deal with the Nigerian government towards granting amnesty to it.

 

A top staffer of one of the NGOs (name withheld) confirmed that on several occasions, Mr Shekau had sent emissaries to their organization to help secure an amnesty deal with the government of Nigeria.

 

“We were shocked in the initial stages, thinking it was a hoax. But this continued, and we were left with no choice than to inform the security agencies in a bid to protect ourselves.”

Our Website Development Process
while most companies start by talking about the design of your website, we start by talking about how to market your website. We start thinking about messaging, how to build trust, and what the user pathways will be through your website.

  1. Review of current situation
    If you have an existing website, we first want to find out what does and doesn’t work about it. If you have not already, we setup website tracking software on your website and review the data to come up with improvements to implement on the next version of your website.
  2. Business Analysis
    we gain an understanding about your sales process and ideal customers so that we can do a better job of communicating your value proposition to your website visitors. It also helps us prioritize content in a way that will help customers decide whether you’re the right company for them.
  3. Information architecture and user interface planning
    Your content and pages are organized in a way that makes your website easy to use. “Wireframes”, like a blueprint for your website, are created to put ideas down on paper before heading into the design of the website.
  4. Creative strategy and interface Design
    Depending on the message we wish to convey through the design of your website, we will conduct a creative study that will give us a framework for the design of the website. The design of the website will take place in Photoshop by a designer trained in effective interface design techniques. Our designers have undergone hours of training in persuasive design.
  5. Front-end Coding
    We use the latest front-end coding standards while ensuring that our websites are compatible with mobile devices and are search engine-friendly. We’ve been creating a growing number of responsive design websites as mobile integration has become increasingly important to business objectives.
  6. Back-end CMS Development
    Depending on your needs, we will either customize an off-the-shelf content management system such as WordPress (basic content website) or Magento (e-commerce) or use our in-house, custom-developed CMS, called WebModulite. You will be trained in how to use the CMS.
  7. Quality Assurance
    Our coding undergoes rigorous stress tests including potential exploits, workload balancing, and compatibility.
  8. Future improvements and online marketing
    There will always be elements of your website that can be further tested and improved upon. For example, should you feature your top client logos on your homepage, or instead highlight your client testimonials? Which will do better? We like conducting tests to find out and further improve your website as time goes on. After the website has launched our online marketing team will execute a long term strategy that will bring you qualified customers at a high return on investment.
