    Gambian migrants undeterred by horrors of Med crossings. Despite warnings from shipwreck survivors and the international community, Gambians are refusing to abandon dreams of a new life in Europe even if it means risking their lives to cross the Mediterranean aboard rickety boats. In the capital Banjul, they talk of nightmare desert road trips, of mistreatment by traffickers and of relatives drowning, and yet the only thing stopping many from making the journey themselves is a lack of cash. Last December Lamin Fatty from the Nema neighbourhood on the outskirts of Banjul returned home from Libya where he, like thousands more, had hoped to secure a place on a boat bound for Europe. He came back due to a lack of funds and amid increasing attacks on foreigners in Libya, but vows to return to Tripoli and make another attempt. "One day, one of our colleagues left home for work, leaving us behind. He returned home with injuries on his hand claiming that he was stabbed by two young men who took his money and mobile phone," he told AFP. "As the attacks on foreigners continued, we decided to return to the Gambia as we did not have enough money to pay smugglers to smuggle us to Italy." Fatty insisted that while life was tough in Libya, he would return as soon as he had saved enough money. "There is no future for us in the Gambia," he said. Every Gambian who has failed to reach southern Europe has their own horror story, many never getting as far as securing a place on a boat. Banjul resident Adama Sarr was in a convoy smuggling fellow Gambians across the Sahara desert when the truck in front drove over a landmine. - 'Many people have died' - Tired and thirsty after days of travelling, they had been following the vehicle, crammed with Nigerians, on the desert road from Agadez in central Niger, escorted by soldiers who had been bribed to let them pass. Suddenly there was a ear-splitting bang, thick black smoke and charred body parts littering the road ahead. "The injured were taken to Agadez for treatment by the Niger military and we buried the dead in the desert and proceeded with our journey," Sarr told AFP. The group had spent more than $1,000 each just to get to Libya and the horror of the explosion galvanised their resolve rather than making them turn back. "We had to bribe the gendarmes and police on every checkpoint from Mali to Libya," said Sarr, who eventually made his way back to Banjul after failing to raise the cash for the sea crossing. Faburama Ceesay, of Bundung in Greater Banjul, told AFP he sold his home to give his son Lamin the cash to head for Europe in October 2013. "He died a month later after their boat capsized at sea. I still regret giving my son money to venture into that trip." A 12-year-old Gambian girl who survived a shipwreck in April which is thought to have killed 400 migrants -- including members of her family -- wrote an open letter after her rescue begging fellow Africans not to attempt the crossing. "Many people have died, my best friends and my sisters and my brothers have died in the wave to come to Italy," she wrote in the letter, made public at her request by the humanitarian group Pope John XXIII Community. - Cruelty and abuse - Up to 800 migrants were killed in another shipwreck on April 19 when their trawler sank between Libya and southern Italy, sparking global outrage and demands for a solution to the crisis. Meanwhile a report by Amnesty International published earlier this month said migrants in Libya faced cruelty and abuse. The situation has worsened since the NATO-backed 2011 uprising that toppled dictator Moamer Kadhafi, with powerful militias battling for Libya's oil wealth and two governments vying for power. Feeding on the chaos, people smugglers have stepped up their lucrative trade. The flow of migrants also rises when sea conditions improve in warmer months. While many Gambians who risk the trip across the Mediterranean are economic migrants, others say they are fleeing repression at home. President Yahya Jammeh, an outspoken military officer and former wrestler, has ruled the former British colony with an iron fist since seizing power in 1994. The regime is frequently berated for human rights abuses, enforced disappearances, extra-judicial killings, torture and the muzzling of journalists. Jammeh has dismissed the economic worries of Gambian migrants, arguing in a televised address last week that "true Muslims" would encourage their sons and daughters to take up job opportunities which are available at home. In reality 60 percent of the population live in poverty, and a third survive on $1.25 or less a day, according to the UN's 2014 Human Development Report. Ironically, Jammeh has taken a much softer line on non-African migrants, offering to take in all Rohingya boat people stranded in southeast Asia.Gambian migrants undeterred by horrors of Med crossings.

  • NIGERIAN OIL WORKERS DOWN TOOLS OVER SALE OF OML 42.
    OML 42 sale causes Nigerian oil workers to shut down official business and activities at the headquarters of the corporation.

    These employees are demanding the reversal of the transfer to the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC). They are against the operatorship of OML 42 by Shoreline Group and Neconde Energy Ltd.

    Emmanuel Ojugbana, the spokesman for white-collar oil union Pengassan, told Reuters on Tuesday, "the shut down has not been done yet," but that they would take action if the government had not met with them by the end of the week.

    According to CEO of Shoreline Group, Kola Karim, “There was never any sale of OML, the true position is very simple… NPDC, as the operating arm of NNPC, had some assets novated to them to take on the operations about three years ago."
    “Benchmarking that to what is happening today, those assets have not been operated efficiently nor does NPDC have the required funding to make sure these assets are performing."

    Karim argues that the unions were aware that assets which belong 100 per cent to NPDC, were not being adequately looked after therefore, why was the focus of their strike against assets divested to Shoreline.

    He said that a company like Shoreline had the required technical ability and financial capacity to produce royalties and revenues for the government even in the face of dropping oil prices. However, it is “shocking” that unions do not want that.

    According to reports, the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria has been pleading with the government to stop the continued scarcity of petroleum products.

    TUC further advised the government to take concrete steps on the issue of local refining to put a stop to the problem of importation of petroleum products and payment of subsidy.

    With the current decline in the oil price and Nigeria’s debt woes, Karim said that the government stands to gain more from this.

    “Government needs to step in and see the reality,” emphasised Karim.

    He cited an example of SEPLAT Petroleum Development Company.

    “When picked up, the asset production was less than 15 000 barrels a day. With SEPLAT's technical positioning and financial capacity this asset is creating over 70 000 barrels a day.”

    There seems to be a mismatch in the opportunities at hand and Nigeria being able to exploit the assets in building its cash reserves.

    Shoreline has been closed down for days now and according to Karim the government has no choice because, “The domestic gas obligation is not being met which in turn tells you the power situation is going to get worse in parts of Nigeria”.

    IMPROVE YOUR SEX LIFE WITH TWO-THREE CUPS OF COFFEE DAILY A startling medical study shows that two to three cups of coffee can improve your sex life. A team of researchers from the University Of Texas Health Science Center performed an extensive survey on caffeine. The study was aimed to determine the impact of caffeine products on men. More than 4,000 men were included in the study. They were requested to fill a questionnaire related to their daily consumption of caffeine and sex life. Astonishingly, research reveals that men who consume around 85 milligrams of caffeine per day are less likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction. ED is one of the biggest nightmares of men. There are numerous factors that increase the chances of ED such as tobacco use, obesity, cardiovascular conditions, diabetes, hypertension and alcohol. .85 milligrams of caffeine is equal to two to three cups of coffee daily. Two cups of coffee reduces risk of impotence up to 42 percent, whereas three cups 39 percent. Dr. David Samadi, head of urology at Lenox Hill hospital, explains the affect of coffee. He informs that coffee relaxes cavernous tissues in men. It enables more blood to flow to the particular area. However, further research is needed to determine affect of caffeine on overweight and diabetes patients. Tea, coffee, cold drink and sodas are the best sources of caffeine.

    Nembe Youths Disrupt OML 29 Production In Bayelsa Youths from Nembe Communities in Bayelsa have shutdown two flow stations within OML 29 to protest the divestment of Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) from the field. A resident, Michael Dennis, told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday that the communities were aggrieved over the sale of the asset by Shell without recourse to the community. Dennis said the youths embark on the protest following several attempts to get the oil firms involved in the deal to factor in the interest of the host communities. He said youths stormed the oil field in more than 20 speedboats and shut it down without any resistance by the armed security men deployed to the facility. The resident said that the youths had forced oil workers operating the facility to safely shutdown the facility to avert any accident or damage to the installation. It will be recalled that Shell in March 2015 sold off its equity stake in OML for 1.7 billion dollars to Aiteo Eastern Exploration and Production. The security operatives claimed they were not aware of the incident, but ASP Asinim Butwat, told NAN that an official in the oil firm confirmed the development to him. “Checks at Nembe Division showed that the matter was not yet reported to the Divisional Police Officer, but a source in the facility confirmed the incident and said that it is being sorted out,” Butswat said. Nembe communities in Bayelsa and Shell held divergent views on outstanding oil spill compensation and environmental damages as the oil firm plans to divest its assets in the area. Nembe Oil and Gas Committee had in March 2013 urged prospective investors interested in acquiring Shell’s interests in oil fields in the area to investigate outstanding liabilities. The community stated that Shell had an outstanding liability of about one billion dollars in damages and compensation in the oil firm’s operations for the past 50 years in Nembe. Chief Nengi James, Chairman of the Nembe Oil and Gas Committee, however, assured that the community would extend its peaceful disposition to the new investors.
