Image
Former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain and widow of former Biafran warlord, the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Bianca Ojukwu has warned pro-Biafra groups clamouring for the boycott of the Anambra governorship election to desist or have themselves to blame.

She asked them to begin such calls in their home states instead of Anambra.

Speaking during the inauguration of the Akpokuodike Fan Club, in Awka, Mrs. Ojukwu decried the near absence of Federal Government presence in the state in terms of infrastructure, insisting that APGA remained the voice of Ndigbo and should be supported.

She warned that Anambra should not be used as a testing ground by Kanu and his separatist group.

“Let them begin it in their home states. Why Anambra?. They better desist or have themselves to be blamed,” she warned.

Speaking on the coming forthcoming guber election, Mrs. Ojukwu said APGA and its leadership remained a replica and model of her late husband’s dream of a region where excellence prevailed.


Photo Of A Woman With Mysterious Leg Disease.

Image
A woman identified as Rezia Begum has leg swollen to enormous proportions in a potentially-deadly condition, the victim’s right leg weighs around 60kg.

The mother-of-two, from Bangladesh, has suffered with the condition ever since the birth of her second daughter 18 years ago. Although it is unclear how Ms Begum’s condition affects her, she says she is now dependent on the support of her relatives.

Ms Begum said: ‘I was like any other normal woman but now I’m a burden on my poor family.’ Although she is being cared for at Dhaka Medical College Hospital in Bangladesh, she is yet to begin treatment.

Surgery and additional tests are required before therapy can start. The cause of Ms Begum’s condition is unclear, however, previous reports of other cases revealed the disorder can be caused by roundworms entering the body via mosquitoes.

If the swelling spreads from the legs to the abdomen, the condition can be fatal. Elephantiasis affects around 120 million people globally. It is characte…

The Health Benefits Of Coconut Water.

Image
Low in calories, naturally fat- and cholesterol free, more potassium than four bananas, and super hydrating – these are just a few of the many benefits ascribed to America’s latest health craze: coconut water.

Dubbed “Mother Nature’s sports drink” by marketers, the demand is skyrocketing, propelled by celebrity and athlete endorsements and promises to hydrate the body and help with a whole host of conditions, from hangovers to cancer and kidney stones.

But is coconut water capable of delivering on all the promises or is it hype?

What Is Coconut Water?


Naturally refreshing, coconut water has a sweet, nutty taste. It contains easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolytes. Not to be confused with high-fat coconut milk or oil, coconut water is a clear liquid in the fruit’s center that is tapped from young, green coconuts.

It has fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than a sports drink. Ounce per ounce, most unflavored coconut water contains 5.45 calories, 1.3 gr…
