Educating Nigerians Before Birth And After Death, By Owei Lakemfa – The Maravi Post




A Story trended in the social media on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, the International Teachers Day. On that day, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Alhaji Yahaya Mohammad as a Board Member of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Many Nigerians appeared scandalised that the Senate would clear a man who was born on September 29, 1969 but had started school in 1968; that is the year before he was born.

It was also unsettling for them that the nominee had claimed he attended the Borno Teachers College for thirteen years from 1975.

That means he started his post-primary education at the age of seven and finished the five-year course when he was 20. Simultaneously, he attended the professional College of Administration Studies in 1980 when he was a 12-year old boy. This man clearly, was a child prodigy.

Personally, I see nothing strange in a man beginning primary school before he was born because children are educated before they are born. Otherwise, where would a new born baby have learnt how to cry? Where would it have learnt that when hungry, it should yell for nutrients or breast milk?

It is a well-known fact that for us Nigerians, education is not just life-long, but eternal; it is before birth and after death. That is why it is not uncommon for people to speak to a corpse at the grave side.

They admonish it on various issues, remind it of past or pending matters and generally tell it not to forget the loved ones it has left behind. Sometimes the corpse during burial, is sent on errands; it is told to convey the greetings of the living to deceased loved ones in the land of the dead.

The Yorubas know this better than any other Nigerian nationality. They tell the corpse to continue its education eternally. There is a standard instruction they give the corpse: “When you get to heaven, neither eat millipedes nor worms, rather, eat what is eaten there.” In other words, the deceased is to study the dietary pattern in heaven. It is like saying when in Rome, behave like a Roman.

Although teachers are told their reward is in heaven, they neither teach the unborn nor the dead; they teach only the living on surface earth, and they do a good job doing so. This is why I agree that: “Teachers are the keys that unlock the student’s mind.”

It is also a truism that while: “the architect makes houses, the writer makes poetry, the scientist makes discoveries, the teacher makes them all.” In other words: “Teachers make all other professions possible.” So: “If there were no teachers, all other professions will not exist.” The point is, if you can read this, thank your teacher.

Teachers Day in Nigeria has become a ritual during which the Presidency plays the role of chief priest casting divination which shows a better future for teachers. This year, two major promises the Buhari administration made to teachers are: an enhanced salary system and extending their retirement age from 60 to 65 years. These are familiar promises; they were the same made during the 2020 Teachers Day.

In fact, the issue of an enhanced teachers’ salary system dates back to 2006 during the Obasanjo administration. It was called the Teachers Salary Scale, TSS. It is similar to the University Salary Scale, USS.

The Yar’Adua administration, 2007-2009, formalised the TSS. Since then, its implementation has been trying to burrow through the bureaucracy underground. So for over a dozen years now, the Jonathan, and now the Buhari administrations on every Teachers Day, make the same promises.

The extension of the teachers retirement age by five years is even an older promise since the retirement age of lecturers in the universities has been sixty five. In fact in 2010 the then Minister of Education, Dr. Sam Egwu announced the implementation of a new retirement age in the universities; that for professors was extended from 65 to 70, and for the non-academic staff from 60 to 65 years.

But why are teachers pleased whenever they are teased that their retirement age will be extended? It is poverty. Nigeria has evolved so well that to be a pensioner is to be sentenced to a life of penury. First, it takes eternity for the once-off bulk retirement payment, called gratuity to be paid.

Secondly, pension payment has never been a priority of governments at state and federal levels. Thirdly, subsequent adjustments to pension in line with continuous currency devaluation, hyper-inflation and salary increases, are usually not reflected, or reflected very late for pensioners. So the average Nigerian worker lives in fear of retirement.

This is in sharp contrast to their European counterparts who look forward to retirement. I recall during my March 2012 visit to factories like BMW in Germany, there were protests and strikes over the decision of some governments in Europe to increase retirement age by an average two years.

The workers felt they needed more time for holidays and with their families. I reflected that in contrast, Nigerian workers and professionals were clamouring to postpone their retirement as long as possible even if it means tampering with their official records.

In any case, with mass unemployment among young graduates including those with degrees in education, does it not make more sense for teachers to be encouraged to take due retirement and be handsomely rewarded so more employment opportunities can be available for the young?

Whatever the case, we all need teachers, whether old or young. For instance, teachers are needed to organise refresher courses for the Nigeria Army.

Soldiers in Onitsha had arrested popular actor Chiwetalu Agu for wearing a cloth emblazoned with the defunct Biafra coat of arms. First the army statement announced that it was the “very well-known attire” of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

This is incorrect because that was the symbol of Biafra from 1967, the same year IPOB founder, Nnamdi Kanu was born. Secondly, various organisations in Eastern Nigeria wear it. So the army’s conclusion that by the actor wearing such a cloth in his film company bus, amounts to “soliciting” support for IPOB, is illogical. 

More to my point. Viral videos showed soldiers pushing the famous actor at gun point, forcing him to the ground, dragging him on the tarred road before finally carrying him like a piece of rag. Yet the army told Nigerians and the world that: “he (Agu) was not assaulted or subjected to brutalisation.”

You see why teachers are needed to explain that brutalisation or assault is to visit physical violence on somebody, which was what soldiers in the video did to the veteran actor. May we never lack teachers in our lives.

Angola: Travellers to now pay for Covid testing at airport – The Maravi Post




Rapid tests, compulsory since January on arrival in Angola, and hitherto free of charge will now be paid for.

A new government decree defines the cost of 31850 kwanzas, the equivalent to 46 euros, for a test to be carried out at the Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport in Luanda.

Paid but not at the time the person is tested, the amount will be charged when the airline ticket is purchased through a “health fee” that the airline company then hands over to the Angolan State.

The initiative is part of the fight against the spread of the coronavirus. Among the measures taken by Luanda to try to limit the spread of the coronavirus is the obligation for users of public and private services to present proof of vaccination. Angola has already vaccinated 7.7% of its 32 million inhabitants

As of Sept. 1, authorities lifted the lockdown in place in Luanda since March 2020 and the quarantine period for persons fully vaccinated arriving in Angola has also been lifted.

WHO advisory group recommends COVID-19 booster shot for immunocompromised people – The Maravi Post




The recommendation follows a four-day meeting of the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization.  A final report will be issued in December.

Risk of severe disease 

SAGE said moderately and severely immunocompromised persons should be offered an additional dose of all WHO-approved vaccines “since these individuals are less likely to respond adequately to vaccination following a standard primary vaccine series and are at high risk of severe COVID-19 disease.” 

People aged 60 and older who received the Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines should get a third dose too, the experts added, though use of other vaccines may also be considered depending on supply and access. 

“When implementing this recommendation, countries should initially aim at maximizing 2-dose coverage in that population, and thereafter administer the third dose, starting in the oldest age groups”, they said. 

SAGE has also reviewed a vaccine developed by Indian company Bharat Biotech and will issue a policy recommendation after WHO greenlights it for emergency use.  

Global vaccine strategy 

WHO last week announced a plan to end the COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring all people, everywhere, have access to vaccines. 

The Global COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy calls for inoculating 40 per cent of people in all countries by the end of the year, and 70 per cent by the middle of 2022. 

The strategy takes a three-step approach to vaccination.  Priority is given to older people, health workers and high-risk groups of all ages, followed by adults and then adolescents. 

Historic malaria vaccine 

SAGE together with another WHO advisory group on malaria also reviewed evidence on the world’s first malaria vaccine, which is geared towards children. 

The experts recommended that the RTS,S/AS01 vaccine be used in areas with moderate to high transmission of the disease. 

This follows an ongoing pilot programme in Ghana, Kenya and Malawi in which more than 800,0000 children were inoculated since 2019. 

Malaria is transmitted by infected mosquitoes and can be fatal.  Children under five are among those at higher risk of the disease. 

In 2019, malaria cases stood at approximately 229 million worldwide, and roughly 409,000 deaths, according to WHO data. Children under five accounted for 274,000 deaths, or around 67 per cent.
