Libya Returnees Test Positive For HIV/AIDS

Some Nigerians deported from Libya have tested positive for HIV/AIDS. Screening was carried out by Edo State Agency for the Control of AIDS (SACA).

Alarmed by the discovery, the state said it has begun the process of recalling Libya returnees to make them undergo HIV/AIDS screening.

The Executive Officer of SACA, Mrs. Flora Oyakhilome, who addressed reporters while screening some returnees, said the government valued returnees’ health.

She said anyone with the virus would be treated. Oyakhilome, who refused to disclose the number of those that tested positive for the virus, said screening was on.

She said: “We are making arrangement to recall those who have been deported, to have them tested for HIV/AIDS. We have discussed with the commissioner for Women Affairs.

“The woman said she is compiling the list so that they will have the data to know how to get these persons tested and integrated into the society.

Update on the present 'fuel scarcity' and fuel queues

It is no longer news that present fuel scarcity been witnessed in Nigeria has affected major sectors of the country's economy. In some quarters, a litre of fuel is being sold for N200, N250, while in some part of Lagos, a litre allegedly goes for the rate of N500.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mr Ndu Ughamadu, on Thursday in Abuja says fuel queues will `normalise’ by Friday and disappear by weekend.

Mr Ndu Ughamadu, the NNPC spokesman, said this in Abuja that there was an increase in the number of incoming trucks of petrol into the FCT to curb the queues in the city.

According to him, the NNPC Group Managing Director, Dr Maikanti Baru, has met with the heads of Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) and Petrol Tanker Drivers (PTD) to nip the problem in the bud.

He disclosed that a nation that consumed 35 million litres suddenly increased consumption to 85 million litres due diversion to neighbouring countries. “Dr Baru just today directed that more trucks be moved into the FCT to douse tension and increase supply.

He met with NARTO and PTD and they assured that trucks would be closely monitored. “He said Lagos should be maintained at 300 trucks but the actual figure coming into Abuja should be increased by 150.
