FAO: Peace is the sustainable solution to food insecurity

The Africa regional representative for the Food and Agriculture Organization has told delegates at a meeting in Nigeria that the 'sustainable solution' to food insecurity is 'peace'.

Abebe Haile-Gabriel was in the capital, Abuja, to discuss food security and the road to achieving the goal of zero hunger with local stakeholders.

Famine threat in Horn of Africa

The talks come just days after the United Nations warned that hundreds of thousands of people in Somalia are facing starvation.

‘The situation in Somalia is dire. There has been drought for more than four years in a row and this has devastating impact on the livelihood of the people there,’ he said.

A severe drought in the Horn of Africa has destroyed crops and killed livestock on which the survival of people in the region depend.

Food security requires peace

Haile-Gabriel highlighted the fact that achieving food security required more than just assistance to farmers.

‘The FAO has been in collaboration with some donor agencies, and procured fertilizer which is has made available to farmers in the affected region,’ he said, ‘But, this is not a sustainable solution. The sustainable solution is to find peace so that normal life can continue.’

Despite efforts to move past decades of drought and conflict, it is the third time in 10 years that Somalia has been threatened with a devastating famine.

Speaking recently at the United Nations General Assembly, Somalia’s President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud called on the country’s partners to do everything possible to help avert the famine, which also threatens the wider Horn of Africa region.

Gay British-Nigerian priest celebrates second anniversary in Anglican church

Gay British-Nigerian LGBTQ rights activist and ordained cleric, Rev. Jide Macaulay, has celebrated his second anniversary as an Anglican priest.

The cleric who described himself as the only ordained homosexual that God loves, took to Instagram to share his gruelling journey to the priesthood.

He spoke of the trials, media attacks, emotional, and psychological abuse, racism and homophobia he faced for many years.

He said, ” Several years, going through the wilderness of anxieties and facing many attacks, I describe as spiritual darkness, religious abuse and wickedness in high places. I had developed chronic anxieties and depression, leading to high blood pressure.

“I had faced years of racism, xenophobia, malicious acts, homophobia and stigmatisation by the Christian communities I trusted. But in all, I laid it at the feet of Jesus in my lamentation.

“The attacks were not just by strangers, who called for me to be executed, the death threats offline, online and in the media. But also some Christians, some Anglicans, and family members attacked me verbally, emotionally and psychologically, they did so much to torment me and do everything to destroy me.

“Am the ordained homosexual that God loves. This might be difficult for many but it’s been the joy of my life to serve God.

“In all of this God is faithful. I am thankful that I surrounded myself with people who reminded me of my worth and validated my existence and ministry.

“Today is not about regrets but a reminder that the stones the builders rejected proudly becomes the cornerstone.

“Congrats Jide for your journey to priesthood. Happy 2nd anniversary”, he wrote.

Recall that the reverend, who fled Nigeria to the U.K after his church was attacked several times for being pro-LGBT, has been at the forefront of championing the equal rights of LGBTIQ+ persons and helping them to reconcile their sexuality with their Christian faith through his faith-based organization, House of Rainbow, which he started in Nigeria.

Macaulay was featured in the documentary ‘Am I Too Gay for God? last year. The film revealed his struggles with the Church’s teachings about homosexuality. Besides, same-sex marriage has been legal in Great Britain since 2013, but it’s a right the Church of England doesn’t recognize.

Alexander-Arnold out of England’s match against Germany

Trent Alexander-Arnold has once again been left out of England’s matchday squad for tonight’s Nations League clash with Germany at Wembley – but Brentford striker Ivan Toney is included and could make his international debut.

The Liverpool right-back didn’t play a single minute as England lost 1-0 against Italy at the San Siro on Friday and now has no more chances to impress manager Gareth Southgate before the World Cup.

The Daily Mail reports that AC Milan defender Fikayo Tomori, West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen, Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse and the suspended Manchester City attacker Jack Grealish are the other players left out.

Alexander-Arnold is widely considered one of the best attacking full backs in the world, but there are question marks over his defensive ability.

Arrow right #1 Icon Created with Sketch.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have been suspect at the back all season, with the 23-year-old criticised after a humbling 4-1 loss against Napoli in the Champions League and after a 2-1 defeat against rivals Manchester United in the Premier League.

His omission portrays that he will only have featured in five of England’s 31 games leading up to the World Cup, an astonishing statistic which shows his distance from Southgate’s thinking.

Daily Mail noted that Alexander-Arnold was an eye-catching omission from the last major tournament, the 2020 European Championships which ended in a spot-kick defeat against Italy in the final, with injury – although his knock saved Southgate the awkward decision of leaving him out even if he were fully fit, which may well have happened anyway.

Although right back is one of England’s strongest positions, he still appears to be behind Kyle Walker, Reece James and Kieran Trippier in the pecking order.

Southgate said, “Of course, he does have a fantastic range of passing, we’re blessed with different profiles of player in that position. If we play with wing-backs, Trippier and Reece James are also exceptional with the ball and we’re always having to look at the full package and assess the players on all of their attributes.

“It’s a really difficult position to make decisions on, but we have to go with the ones we believe, and ultimately I’ll be judged on the outcome, as we know. I don’t see risks.

“You can have a style of play and a way of playing, and a balance to the team, that… at Liverpool they find a way of playing that brings the best out of his attributes.

“And that’s what we’re all trying to do with every team, you’re trying to build a team that accentuates the positives, and within the group protects yourselves against how the opponents might come from you.”

Speaking after the event, Head of Sports, Chrisland School, VGC and a member of the organising committee, Ashiru Olaseewo, said, “The tournament is in memory of one of our students Daniel Oreoluwa Adebiyi, a very talented footballer whose dream was to play in one of the football academies in England, but death cut his dream short because he had an injury and died.

“While on the sick bed, the parents asked him what he wanted to be remembered for, and he requested that they set up a foundation for him, where this competition would be played and the MVP sponsored outside the country to a club in the UK or USA.

“The essence of this tournament is also to discover fresh talents for the national teams and to combine academics with sports.”

He added that the organisers were making plans to register more schools to participate in the next edition.

“The MVP today (Saturday) won a one-year kit sponsorship and a cash prize of N200,000. We had challenges holding the event this year, which is why we had only three of our schools.

“We had two teams from Chrisland School, VGC play in the first edition in 2021, now it’s larger because we had three schools.

“We are hoping that by 2023, we will have more schools register for the competition and the cash prize for the MVP will be around N500,000 to N1m with a scholarship to an academy in the US or UK.”

A statement from the national side said they decided to rest the 30-year-old for Egypt’s friendly against Liberia on Tuesday.

EXPOSED! How Footballer, Paul Pogba Paid A Witch Doctor £3.5m To Neutralize Mbappe

Mathias Pogba, the brother to world-famous Juventus star, Paul Pogba, has made some startling accusations against his brother.

Mathias accused the midfielder of paying at least €4 million (£3.5m) to a witch doctor who ‘neutralised’ Kylian Mbappe during Manchester United’s Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain in 2019.

Mathias was arrested a couple of weeks ago and is currently in custody in Paris over his alleged role in the blackmail plot involving Pogba.

The 37-year-old Mathias Pogba has denied his part in the attempted blackmail but has been accused of ‘extortion in an organised gang’ and ‘participation in a criminal association with a view to preparing a crime’.

Just yesterday, Friday, September 23, several pre-recorded video messages from Mathias surfaced online.

In one of the video messages, Mathias accused Pogba of paying for a witch doctor to put a spell on Paris Saint-Germain’s star-man, Mbappe for United’s Champions League tie against PSG in 2019.

Manchester United were defeated 2-0 in the first leg at Old Trafford and Pogba was red-carded during the game but staged a remarkable comeback in second leg in Paris, beating PSG 3-1, progressing to the quarter-finals.

“The turning point came with the World Cup in 2018, where Paul had more faith in the witch doctor than in God, entrusting the witch with a big task in order to help the French team win,” Mathias Pogba said in his video.

“The witch doctor would go on to tell Mam’s [an intermediary] that the job had already been done, and that was when Mam’s would start to be scared.

“After that, Paul continued with his witch doctor, notably in the Champions League to ensure that Manchester United would go through against PSG.

“At the request of Paul, the witch was told to neutralise Kylian Mbappe, who back then was on a rapid rise, far outstripping Paul’s fame.

“It was strange to see that during that match Kylian was a shadow of himself against a reserve side.

“The issue is that at the same time, Paul was doing everything he could to get closer to Kylian, as we could see in the media, supposedly liking him and calling him his friend, he would often call him, we would see them arm-in-arm

“It went so far that Kylian almost made it a condition for his PSG contract extension that the club would have to sign Paul, without knowing that behind his back Paul was engaging in witchcraft to sabotage his matches.

“That same witch doctor would go on to [say] that he had to stop the ongoing curse, at risk of destroying [Mbappe’s] career, keeping in mind that he was paid by the task, knowing that my brother, always close to his money, had not paid enough for a long-term job, and that the witch wanted to make him pay as much as possible,” he said according to Metro.
