Update on Debbie Idiagbonya...@SaveDebbie

I'm sure by now most of you know who Debbie is. The lady suffering from 4th grade Invasive Ductal Carcinoma - cancer of the breast. A lot of Nigerians came to her aid and helped raise the N6m she needed for surgery. She's currently in DC and I had the priviledge of meeting her some days back.

The update: She's done pre-surgery, which is the implant of port and is on the right breast. This will reduce the stress of transfusion through the vein. She has also done PET, MRI, Mammogram and Biopsy.

She has been asked to do echo-cardiogram, this will make them know the condition of her heart because she was told the chemotherapy injection she was given in Nigeria was harsh and it might have affected her heart. See more photos after the cut...

Fausat Balogun buried in Brazil

Wondering who Fausat Balogun is or was in this case? Well, she's the 72 year old woman who was arrested in Brazil for carrying drugs (See the story HERE)

Unfortunately she passed away on the 30th of October, 2012 due to a mild stroke caused by the high blood pressure which she'd been suffering from before arriving at the penitentiary. She died at the hospital for women inside the penitentiary in Brazil.

No family member came for her body so she was buried at the Vila Formosa Municipal Graveyard in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The trip to Brazil was actually her first time out of Nigeria, and some heartless people decided to use her as a drug courier without her knowledge. She died in that country and was buried there. Truly sad!

Sanusi calls for the sack of 50% of civil servants in Nigeria

The Central Bank governor on Monday called for the sack of 50% of civil servants in Nigeria because according to him, 'the country spends 70 per cent of its earnings on salaries and entitlements of civil servants.'
“You have to fire half of the civil service because the revenue of the government is supposed to be for 167 million Nigerians. Any society where government spends 70 per cent of its revenue on its civil service has a problem. It is unsustainable,” he said.
Organized Labour, including the Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress, Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, the Civil Liberties Organisation and Radio, Television, Theatre and Arts Workers Union, have all condemned his statement, some asking for his immediate sack.
