Keeping It Real With Adeola - Eps 223 (Unpaid Salaries: 1,300 Nigerians Dead; 50,000 Killed In S. Sudan)
This week on KIRWA, more than 1,300 Nigerians have died due to unpaid salaries and pensions.
Also, Adeola visits the Nigerian embassy in New York, where workers have not been paid in months. Meanwhile, customers now wait outside to renew passports because the embassy is not able to repair its air conditioners, the only source of air, especially during the current heatwave, since the windows cannot be opened.
In South Sudan, United Nations estimate more than 50,000 have been killed in the ongoing civil war between those loyal to the president and those loyal to the vice-president. However, despite the fact that all countries are evacuating their citizens, Nigeria says there's no cause for alarm.
In Zimbabwe, President Mugabe blames the West for the ongoing protests against his regime. Meanwhile, women take to the streets with their cooking pots, while police harass vendors. In the same week, thousands of Zanu PF youth partake in a pro-Mugabe protest.
Lastly, Adeola features a free private school (OPM Free School), owned by a Nigerian Pastor in Rivers State. She also challenges pastors to do more in making life better for their members.
