Their immediate reaction was to distance themselves from her, calling her the “Ebola woman”. Listening to her I broke with tears and I imag...

During a national conference earlier this year, a coalition of youths brought the issue to the fore. They affirmed that the estimated population of Nigerian youths, which constitute about 70 percent of the population, is twice the population of Ghana and more than the p...
