Buhari Asks World Leaders To Save Lake Chad

Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has called on world leaders to forge a united front to save Lake Chad’s ecosystem from further depletion caused by the adverse effects of climate change.
The Nigerian President made the request at the Leaders Event of the United Nations Climate Change Conference, commonly referred to as COP 21, in Paris.
President Buhari said climate change had continued to pose a threat to Nigeria’s security and development.
He said: “At the sub-regional level, we are saddled with the challenge of the drying up of the Lake Chad Basin, which is resulting in the total wipe out of livelihoods of many communities surrounding this trans-boundary natural resource.
“Regrettably, the world is leaving behind millions of people who depend on the Lake for their survival.
“The Government of Nigeria welcomes the Lake Chad Development and Climate Resilience Plan, and the Lake Chad Basin Commission and international partners for designing this climate-based Plan”.
“In all, the experience of countries sharing the Lake Chad further illustrates the mutual challenge we face today and which must be collectively addressed without further delay”.
On Nigeria’s position on the climate change negotiations, President Buhari said any meaningful and potential agreement on climate change in Paris, “must draw extensively on the principles of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities”.
Effective Means Of Monitoring
The President, who shortly before his arrival to Paris approved Nigeria’s Intended National Determined Contributions (INDC) to tackle climate change, said for any agreement in Paris to be durable, “it must recognise not only the emission right but also the survival rights of the citizens of developing countries”.
The President also used the occasion of his address to around 150 leaders, who attended the opening ceremony of the summit, to affirm Nigeria’s position of a potential agreement that equitably addresses climate change mitigation and adaptation activities.
According to a statement by the President’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, Buhari said the potential agreement must make provisions for adequate financing, technology transfer and capacity development in the developing countries.
President Buhari therefore called for the establishment of an effective means of monitoring, reviewing and verification of availability as well as accessibility of funds to the developing countries in order to address the challenges of climate change.
He assured world leaders of Nigeria’s readiness to support a legally binding and all-encompassing Paris Agreement, which must be fair to all.

An unidentified 65-year-old man underwent surgery in Rabat, Morocco to have a hernia bigger than a football removed. It reached down to the midpoint of his thigh causing him to suffer difficulties with walking, urinating or having sex. Such a case had not been recorded in the medical literature before, said doctors describing his case in the Journal of Medical Reports.

Medics reported the swelling was 30cm in length – longer than a football, which is typically 23cm in diameter.
The man had the growth for more than 12 years but had previously refused surgery to treat it. He finally went for treatment after the growth significantly affected his quality of life causing him difficulties walking and having sex, the man was placed under a general anaesthetic and the operation to remove the huge swelling went smoothly. After six months, doctors were pleased to see the hernia had not returned.

Is Russia breaking the Geneva Convention by using deadly white phosphorus in Syria? Claims that images and footage show incendiary being dropped on civilians

Numerous reports claim that Russia has dropped deadly white phosphorus on civilians in northwest Syria, as its intensive bombing campaign against ISIS continues.
The chemical weapon is banned under the Geneva Convention, because it is highly toxic and can burn through flesh and bone.
White phosphorus, an incendiary also known as WP, is used by armies to illuminate targets during the night or as a smokescreen during the day.
Shocking images posted to Twitter show the sky allegedly filled with the potentially deadly weapon, as it rains down on the de-facto capital of ISIS, Raqqa.But while Raqqa may be an ISIS stronghold, activists on the ground claim that civilians were caught up in airstrike, which was described as a ‘war crime’.
Human rights organisations have claimed that Russian airstrikes have killed more civilians than ISIS fighters.
