World Earth Day and Nigeria for Science

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22 with various worldwide events held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. In commemoration of the day this year, over 600 countries across the world took to the streets for 'March for Science'. Our dear country, Nigeria was one of the countries that participated in the march and took a stand for science.

The event was organised in Abuja, Nigeria, by the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology in collaboration with other ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government; the National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA); National Orientation Agency (NOA); the Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology (OFAB) in Africa, Nigeria Chapter and a non-profit institution based at Cornell University, New York, the Cornell Alliance for Science.

The 'March for Science' drew participants from the African Agricultural Technology Foundation (AATF); National Agricultural Quarantine Service (NAQS); FCT Department of Science and Technology; Academic Union of Research Institutes (ASURI); ECOWAS; a private agricultural solution firm, CONTEC Global and other scientific officers, who marched from the Eagle Square to the Unity Fountain and back. There was also a media parley and a tour of NABDA facilities at the agency's headquarters on Airport Road, Abuja.

Addressing participants at the Unity Fountain, the permanent secretary of the science and technology ministry, Mrs Belema Wakama, said the march provided an opportunity for scientists and science supporters to take a stand and highlight the immense benefits available for Nigerians in science.

"We are here to remind you that we live in the age of science. The life of everyone of us is highly dependent on the scientific inventions, innovations and modern day technologies. Science has changed the lives of people largely which as we all know have been deployed to every aspect of modernization and in sectors like agriculture, medicine, environment, education, industry, electricity, aviation, information, etc. for both the developed and developing nations," she said.

Wakama noted that science is revolutionary as it holds the key to constant development and improvement for addressing climate change, food shortage and challenges in medicine, stressing that the march provided yet another opportunity for supporters of science to come together, join voices to amplify available evidence-based solutions for the nation to adopt to ensure food security especially with its growing population.

According to her, "at the current population of over 180 million people and projected population of 400 million people by 2050, Nigeria is faced with the risk of decreased farming population due to age; decreased arable land; poverty; malnutrition and hunger because the conventional method of agriculture can no longer meet up with our demand. Science holds the solution to our food security."

Saying a country that cannot feed herself cannot have self-pride, she pointed out that the issue of food security required all hands to be on deck for the reconstruction, revival and rejuvenation of our agricultural sector.

The permanent secretary represented by the director of bioresearches and technology at the ministry, Abayomi Oguntunde, stated that agricultural biotechnology and genetic improvement is recognised all over the world as a solution to food security, adding scientific and regulatory agencies around the world had repeatedly and consistently found crops and foods improved through biotechnology to be safe.

Earlier in her remarks, the director-general of NABDA, Prof. Lucy Ogbadu, said the ultimate goal of the march was to ensure that scientific integrity played an important role in government decisions that affect everyone, from funding research for evidence-based policy making to regulation recommendations.

She said the march also aimed to highlight the vital role science plays in our lives and take a stand on it; to build capacity, gain publicity and demonstrate strength and solidarity in science to decision makers; to re-emphasis the role of science in national development; to help scientists and communities they serve work together in improving science education, communication and access.

Other objectives of the march, according to her, include to create awareness and sensitise the public on the many ways that science serves our communities and our world and also encourage the public to value and invest in science, appreciate and engage with science; to speak up because research is not gaining enough support it needs to drive the plan to revitalise Nigeria's agricultural sector; to create an open, honest science communication inclusive public outreach and to affirm science as a democratic value.

Speaking to journalists, the OFAB in Africa, Nigeria chapter coordinator, Dr Rose Gidado, said the aim of the 'March for Science' in Nigeria was to persuade the nation to adopt pervasive technologies especially biotechnology.

"We are narrowing the aim of this march down to biotechnology so we can use this technology, the genetic modification tool, in combating the challenges of global warming, desert encroachment, insect and pest infestation of farmers' farmland. This technology is the only tool that the breeders have been able to find useful; they have used it and they find it useful to be able to overcome these global warming challenges," Gidado said.

Barts campus in Gozo two years behind schedule

The building of the Barts Medical School campus in Gozo is two years behind schedule, the government has admitted. A Health Ministry spokeswoman said Vitals Global Healthcare, the private consortium given a 30-year concession to run State hospitals and responsible for the construction, would hand over the finished campus during the third quarter of 2018. Very little work was being done and only a couple of workers were there when the Times of Malta visited the site at the end of last week. The foundations were still being laid. A Gozitan building contractor told this newspaper he had been closely monitoring the works since they started last March, adding that “no significant progress has been noticed”. “In my opinion, it’s obvious there are problems because only a handful of workers have been assigned to the project. This is not on, and something is wrong, although we don’t actually know what is happening,” he remarked. The Health Ministry was asked about the state of play of the project and why progress appeared to be slow but no replies were forthcoming. Pointing out that the campus was part of the €220 million investment VGH would make under the 30-year concession, the...

Retired policeman uses his experience to help children with disabilities in Colombia

When John Micallef retired from the Police Force five years ago, his sense of duty persisted and he soon found himself miles away in Colombia supporting children with disabilities. “I spent 25 years – a lifetime – in the Police Force. When I retired I realised that once you’re a policeman, you’ll always be a policeman,” Mr Micallef – who was in Malta on his first visit here after moving to Colombia – told this newspaper. The former Sergeant Major describes his time in the Police Force as a challenging, but good experience. He said the job was satisfying and the sense of duty kept them going, he explained. “Police officers, especially those who risk their lives to fulfil their duty, are underpaid. The life of an officer is a hard one, but I’m proud to have served my country,” he said. As an officer, Mr Micallef often had to think on his feet. He recalled how one day, he was in Ta’ Xbiex to buy some equipment together with scuba colleagues Charles Cutajar and Conrad Bajada. “We saw plumes of smoke wafting out of a block of apartments.

Millions at risk in Pakistan after arsenic found in water

60 million people could be at risk in Pakistan after dangerously toxic arsenic was found in drinking water across the country.   Samples were collected from around 1,200 wells and nearly two thirds exceeded the safe levels set by the World Health Organisation. According to a report on the WHO website, millions of people have been exposed to contaminated water since wells were drilled in Bangladesh and across the region in the 1970s. It says the extent of problem first came to light 20 years later when scientists found high arsenic levels across the Ganges Delta. Arsenic poisoning causes a range of problems that can affect the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver. It can also lead to comas and eventually death.
