AGRIBUSINESS - Controlling pests without the use of chemicals



By AgroNigeria

One of the perennial problems that farmers face is pests invasion. Pests are dangerous and are great threats to the success of any agribusiness.

For decades, chemical pesticides have been the usual way to control pests on farms. Sadly, its effect on human’s health has raised concerns and many people have argued against its use.

Most of these pesticides are poisonous in nature, though it is the poison that eradicates the pest. But, at times, these pesticides do have residual effects on human as a result of the contamination of the crops during its application.

Therefore, taking preventive measure is better than control. As you plant your crop, there are some plants you can as well plant simultaneously.

These plants that are called companion and pest repellant plants help to reduce pest population and also serve some beneficial purposes,  like proper utilization of space and enhance crop safety through the provision of habitat for beneficial plants.

Local government autonomy in Nigeria


By Idris Ahmed Jamo –published with permission  
Local governments are essentially created to deliver services at the grassroots and bring governance closer to the people. This division of power simplifies the activities of government and serves as a viable incentive for good governance and development. It has also been observed that the local government system serves as the most effective avenue for delivering basic goods and services to local communities.

Nigeria is a federation, with three tiers of government; hence power is shared among its constituent units, which are empowered to make policies and take decisions on certain matters, as well as share common areas of interest with other institutions of government. To this end, certain services are expected to be more efficiently provided by certain levels of government.

In the Edo language, the verb sa-e-y-ama means ‘to remember’, but its literal translation is ‘to cast a motif in bronze’. At the court of Benin, art in bronze perpetuates memory; traditionally, the first commissions of every Benin king are sculptures in bronze and ivory for his father’s memorial altar.

Homosexuality/Feminism Is Alien To Black Culture

Feminism was never a black woman's fight in the first place. Feminism stemmed from the white woman not being able to vote or work. The majority of black men have never told a black woman that she can't work or that she doesn't have a voice in their marriage, these are things that white women had to go through. White men are the only ones that denied their women the right to work or speak her mind in the home.
