A coalition of concerned Nigerians across Nigeria and beyond, are organising Unity Carnival as an expression of patriotism and love for Nigeria and as a collective response to the acts of violence, hate speech and calls for division among various quarters of the country.

The cardinal tagged #Mad4Naija Unity Carnival is intended to commemorate the United Nations International Day of Peace; observed each year on the 21st of September and is in line with the 2017 theme “Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.”

In a statement by Members of Organising Committee, Aisha Waziri and Bright Jaja, the organisers, the event which would take place on September 23, 2017 in Abuja, is aimed at promoting peace and unity in Nigeria, regardless of diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, culture and religion.

The statement further said: “The carnival will be a highly visible platform to build bridges across the nation and a display of the diversity and enormous power innate in Nigerians.

“Features of the carnival will include cultural and artistic performances representing various ethnic groups and tribes. It would also showcase Nigerian delicacies with a food fair. There would be an open market for made in Nigeria products and a concert featuring performances by top Nigerian artistes with the theme of peace and unity.

The event is designed to use culture and entertainment as a catalyst for unity, peace and economic prosperity. The objective is to create an environment that promotes peaceful co-existence and inspire young people to contribute to the development and growth of Nigeria.”

Latest News Fake eye surgeon in police net Ben Dunno, Warri The Police at the Warri Area Command in Delta State has commenced investigations into the activities of an auxiliary nurse at the Central hospital, one Mrs Abanum Chidi, who had been operating as an eye surgeon on unsuspecting members of the public. Investigations carried out by Our Correspondent revealed that the suspect usually engaged as theatre assistance to qualified eye surgeons carrying out major operations at the hospital, sometimes impersonates as surgeon to also operate on patients when the doctors are not around. Her cover was reportedly blown recently when she operated on the eye of a patient who happens to be the husband of a Magistrate in Warri which later resulted in further complications currently threaten to cause blindness. The matter which was being reported at the ‘B Division’ Okumagba Avenue in Warri, prompted police investigations which revealed that the suspect had been involved in carrying operation on patients under the pretense that she was a qualified surgeon. Confirming this in a telephone conversation with our Correspondent, the Delta state Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DSP Andrew Aniamaka, said the police had commenced investigations into the case. According to him, “Yes a nurse by name Mrs. Abanum Chidi, of central hospital Warri, who is not even a surgeon, clandestinely used the operations room of the hospital and operated on the eye of one Mr Gift Aruokpere, of 150 Airport road, Warri on May 2018, and it resulted in serious complications”. “While our men at the ‘B division’ police station, Okumagba Avenue have commenced investigation into the matter, we want to assure the members of the public that the Command is alive to its responsibility in ensuring adequate protection of lives and property of innocent citizens”. *Pls use Nigeria police operatives World Cup: Saraki, others to watch Super Eagles against Iceland in Volgograd Saudi warns sick and old people against Hajj pilgrimage Most Nigerian cities to experience rains, thunderstorms on Friday – NiMet BREAKING: Croatia crush Argentina 3-0 to reach 2018 World Cup knockout stage The criminals in police uniform Witness to history DSS nabs 2 suspected Islamic State commanders in Abuja 2018 Budget: SERAP recommends ICC prosecution of lawmakers over cutting of critical projects Windstorm, Fire Disaster: Buhari weeps in Bauchi nPDP members to attend APC Convention: Baraje 2018 budget: FG to borrow N1.6tn to fund deficit
