Living with fumes of death: More Nigerians dying from inhaling generator fumes

ARUKAINO UMUKORO writes that more Nigerians are dying from inhaling generator fumes even as the country’s energy sector is comatose
 In the still of the night, it sneaked in quietly and lingered dangerously for hours. With every breath intake, the deadly gas known as carbon monoxide, found in fumes from generators as well as in car exhausts, sucked lives out of its hapless victims who were fast asleep. This was what happened on May 28, when Mrs. Chinyere Celestine, and four of her children were found dead in their home off Goodnews Street, in Azikoro suburb, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
They were said to have died in their sleep that night, while the generator was still on.
The father of the children and husband of Chinyere, identified as Celestine, who was said to be in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, when the tragedy occurred, had called a neighbour when he could not reach his wife on telephone the next day. After several attempts to wake the victims, the neighbour raised the alarm that compelled other neighbours to force the door open. They found the victims’ lifeless bodies.

By Jide Ajani

There are many ‘ifs’ 20 years after the annulment of the June 12, 1993presidential election – that is still considered Nigeria’s freest and fairest.  If then military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, had known that the decision to annul the election would lead to the plethora of crises that Nigeria is yet to come over, he may not have acted in that manner.  Indeed if he had known that the  electoral process today would be much worse and replete with serial instances of the reasons he gave for the annulment, he may not have done so.

Mexico: Thousands of n-aked cyclists protest aggressive drivers

Thousands of Mexican cyclists rode n-aked Saturday to protest aggressive drivers and carbon emissions from cars - and the conservativeness of central Mexico's Jalisco state - organizers said.
Some 3,000 demonstrators -- some bare head to toe, others in bathing suits or underwear -- braved catcalls and embarrassed smiles from residents as they biked some 12 miles (20 kilometers) to end up in Guadalajara, the biggest city in Jalisco state.
In downtown Mexico City, nearly 2,000 bikers - n-aked or scantily clad - also demonstrated. Some slapped "fragile" stickers on their bodies or painted messages on their skin: "more bicycles, less pollution," and "the city is for everyone, let bikes pass."
