Importance of Interfaith Dialogue with Humanists in Nigeria – The Maravi Post

Call it an interfaith dialogue with humanists or a humanist dialogue with people of faith. An initiative to promote understanding and acceptance among persons from faith and no-faith traditions in Nigeria is imminent. Dialogue is critical to fostering tolerant pluralism, and peace among persons of various faiths and philosophies. Dialogue does not preclude debate or criticism of other views or beliefs. Criticism and cooperation go- and can go together. Debate and dialogue are two sides of the same coin of active, productive, and progressive existence. Dialogue is needed to reduce tension, prejudice, and differences. This form of conversation facilitates positive interaction and exchange, acceptance, trust, and harmonious coexistence of persons. To achieve peace and cooperation among people of faith and none in Nigeria, it is imperative to promote and encourage dialogue. Religious and non-religious persons must meet and interact in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect. It is necessary to emphasize that at the foundation of the various theistic, non theistic, religious, non religious and irreligious views, positions and doctrines is our common humanity and other shared values.

Incidentally, the project of interfaith dialogue in Nigeria has mainly targeted people who entertain a ‘faith’. The project has created the impression that profession of faith or belief in a god or God is a necessary condition to partake in this conversation. The inter-religious dialogue events have excluded the nonreligious, and nontheists including all who identify as humanists, atheists, agnostics, or freethinkers. The project has been anything but open and inclusive of non-religious demographics and their concerns. The exclusion of humanists and atheists has undermined relationships between persons of faith and no-faith in the country. The exclusion has continued to reinforce anti-atheist prejudice and bias, the religious-us versus nonreligious-them, godly versus godless, faithful versus infidel dichotomies that have fueled hatred, prejudice and mistrust over the years.

As recent events have shown, irreligious persons exist in Nigeria. Atheists are found in different parts of the country. Irreligious individuals are affected by what religious persons do, and vice versa. Activities of religious and non-religious persons have reportedly fueled tensions and intolerance among people from faith and no-faith traditions. And these tensions and underlying differences deserve a forum where they could be addressed.

So, the exclusion of nonreligious persons in the ‘interfaith’ dialogue has been a serious oversight and measures need to be taken to address this gap and rectify this omission. The inclusion of nonreligious persons in the interfaith project is necessary to promote understanding, tolerant living, and peaceful coexistence of religious and nonreligious others. Interfaith dialogue should aim to be more inclusive and to add value to the relationship between humanists and people of faith.

The Humanist Association of Nigeria and the Interfaith Mediation Center are planning an interfaith/belief dialogue that fulfills this need. The proposed session, to be held in Abuja, will be the first in series of dialogic meetings and cooperative programs to identify shared values, and common grounds, and foster trust, friendship and cooperation among people of faith and no-faith in the country.

2021 IDG: Khwalala Girl is new TNM CEO, temporarily – The Maravi Post

Khwalala girl
17year-old Enipher from Khwalala Secondary School was thrust into the big role of CEO for Malawi’s leading mobile telecoms operator, TNM Plc

To commemorate the 2021 Day of International Girl Child, 17year-old Enipher from Khwalala Secondary School was thrust into the big role of CEO for Malawi’s leading mobile telecoms operator, TNM Plc, to model current CEO Arnold Mbwana.

The Form 3 student took over the office Mbwana’s role after being briefed on operations of the integrated ICT company.

Among other things, Enipher (in her capacity as CEO of TNM Plc) highlighted that she would amplify the provision of computers and internet in rural schools as one way of enhancing e-learning and digital literacy.

“The Internet is a wide academic resource which has updated material and amidst this Covid 19 pandemic, students from rural schools miss out a lot on e-learning opportunities thereby rendering us dormant and prone to toxic behaviour,” she explained adding that digital literacy is a non-starter without the availability of computers and internet in schools.

As a flagship project to support digital literacy in secondary schools, TNM has supported Ngumbe and Januwale CDSS, Chayamba and Yamba Secondary Schools with computers and Internet connectivity, to ease the information access needs of learners at these schools.

She further said she would sustain bursaries that TNM currently offers to both secondary and tertiary school students in a bid to ensure the underprivileged fully access education.

“There are a lot of intelligent young people out there who fail to proceed with education due to unavailability of resources. We need to do more in offering bursaries to the needy so that everyone’s right to education is not compromised,” said Enipher.

TNM has been sponsoring 20 girls in boarding secondary schools under the Age Africa Scholarship programme. Previously, the company offered a full bursary to 20 girls at secondary school level and 4 of them are currently in public universities where TNM still caters for their tuition and upkeep. This year the 4 students were provided laptops and connectivity by TNM to allow them to continue their studies in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic.

The good news is, TNM has offered Enipher an instant scholarship to complete her studies at Khwalala Secondary School following her impressive performance during the take-over. A Samsung smartphone and TNM MIFI were also given to the young CEO as she finished her duties. TNM through the CEO has also committed to provide books to Enipher’s school library at Khwalala Secondary School.

Enipher’s attendance as the one-day CEO of TNM Plc was conducted in partnership with Plan International Malawi which is promoting girls access to education, among other initiatives.

“As we reflect on this year’s theme for International Day of the Girl, we need to realise that digital literacy is central in all that we do since our lives revolve around the internet hence the need for adequate computers in schools and access to the internet,” said Rogers Siula, Communications and Campaigns Manager for Plan International Malawi.

Enipher lost her parents at a tender age and struggled to continue her education. Her continued education was made possible by Plan International which constructed a Girl’s Hostel at her school where Enipher was amongst the first occupants.

TNM CEO Mr Arnold Mbwana then narrated to her, his own life story of how without parents, he made it from an utmost rural area of the country to now stand at the helm of one of the biggest local Malawian companies.

“There’s no pre-defined route to become a CEO. I lost my parents at a tender age and grew up with my grandparents from the age of 5. After attending school in the morning, I used to farm in the afternoon and at night we used to go fishing…this was the order of my primary school days. But through this experience I learnt to work hard, being disciplined, and related well with people such that when I was selected to secondary school, I was determined to pursue further education with a purpose,” said Mbwana.

Malawi Government scrambles to justify fuel price hikes, forgetting they castigated Mutharika for doing the same – The Maravi Post

Published

State House says President Dr Lazarus Chakwera is equally concerned with the recent increase in fuel prices.

Director of Communications at State House, Sean Kampondeni said this in Lilongwe during the media briefing.

His remarks come in the wake of an average fuel price increase of 22.8 percent the Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) announced last Saturday.

He urged traders not to take advantage of the situation to unjustifiably and unnecessary raise prices of commodities and services.

There have been growing public fears that the fuel increase will in turn trigger an increase in the cost of goods and services.

Kampondeni, therefore, the President is aware of the pain Malawians are experiencing due to the fuel price hike.

“The President realizes that fuel is a strategic commodity to the country’s economy and as such any price increase pains him as well, just like any other person within the borders of this country,” said Kampondeni, who also the Executive Assistant to the President.

Kampondeni further said the current fuel pump price increase was “inevitable and necessary” as it was dictated by the global economic forces beyond Malawi’s control.

The Executive to the President urged Malawians to exercise patience as the Tonse Alliance is working around the clock to restore the country’s ailing economy.

According to him, the country’s economy was heavily destroyed by careless borrowing that saw the public debt pegged at around K4 trillion.

He also told the nation that Chakwera will on October 19 leave the country for Kenya, Dubai, and Scotland.

In Dubai, Chakwera will take part in Dubai Expo, which is underway and in Scotland, he will take part in the Conference of Parties (CoP) meeting.

Chakwera will return home on November 6 or 7.

Malawi’s Vice-President and president of the party UTM and senior partner in the Tonse Government, Saulos Chilima ,while campaigning against Peter Mutharika of the DPP attacked Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) over t fuel price hike and demanded a proper explanation and a reduction.

Chilima made the demand during a political rally that UTM held in Karonga district where thousands of supporters attended to listen to the party leaders as they unpacked their vision for Malawi.

The country’s second-in-command said MERA had no justification of effecting the latest fuel

price hike because the global oil prices have gone down this week, saying the hike is politically motivated.

“We know the kwacha has gone weaker against other currencies but increasing through prices is not the answer to solve the kwacha’s depreciation on the market hence they should not lie to us,” said Chilima then.

Under the new price structure, a litre of petrol is fetching 6.2 percent more from K932.50 to K990.50, diesel has gone up by 6.9 percent from K935.60 to K990.40 and paraffin is now selling at K785.80 from K735.30, a 3.93 percent hike.
