Adm. James Stavridis: We Must Take Putin's Nuclear Threats Seriously

"What kind of scenario do you envision Putin actually using a weapon of mass destruction? Well, first of all, we've got to take it seriously. He's someone who has often followed through on what he threatened to do. He's been at pains to tell us he's not bluffing the low to mirror zelensky, who knows him quite well in a study them for years, believes he is not bluffing. So a, we got to take his threat seriously. B, I think it's unlikely my own assessment that he would choose to certainly reach for the lever to a nuclear apocalypse. He's not going to launch a massive strategic nuclear attack because he knows that would end up with his own death and destruction of Russia. And as much as I dislike Vladimir Putin, my assessment is, he truly loves his country. So he's not going to go for a massive strategic attack. Well, that brings us to see how would he use perhaps a smaller size so called tactical nuclear weapon. I think one of two ways. So you could use it as a demonstration out in relatively uninhabited territories in Ukraine. You know, it's a big in many places empty country. You could do a demonstration strike and say, hey, the next one goes to key. Or he could use it against us significant tactical formation of the Ukrainian military, probably taking out a significant chunk of infrastructure inside. Both of those are horrific. The question is, how do we deter him from doing that? I think the administration is doing everything possible, which is a to talk about it to shine a light on to move it into the conversation because it'll help if you will swing votes in the relatively unaligned parts of the world. India, South Africa, Brazil, Nigeria, this big world in the south, which is still kind of playing the ball down the middle. And then secondly, tell Putin very specifically, hey, if you use a nuke of any size at all, we're going to enter this war. We're putting up a no fly zone. We're going to attack Russian troops. We're going to sink the Black Sea fleet. We've got a lot of conventional options. And we also say to Putin cyber will come back to you in the cyber world. So apologize for the length of the answer, but it's a pretty important question to you.

"Climate change impact it in principle in my understanding as a country that could feed itself so across Nigeria has enough arable land if it was managed properly, including making sure that produce gets to a market. Nigeria would have a far less dependence on food imports than it currently does. So back to your question, our main worry is we are seeing inflation across the world and the stuff we need to buy including to help people in the northeast is getting more expensive and thus crowding out the aid we have. To turn that round, that must be one of the UN's major objectives, so how are you as the resident and humanitarian coordinator in the country trying to Garner these support and of course the funding for non emergencies for longer term sustainable investment in agriculture and farming so that this can actually happen. The country can stand on its own two feet. So that's, I think, a very pertinent important question. I strongly believe with many of my colleagues in the UN and international community. That Nigeria will not move forward as a result of international aid. International aid will not make the difference and to illustrate this a bit, the Nigerian government has won item in its federal budget that is about fuel subsidies on fuel subsidies alone. They spend double of what the international community brings in in 8. Nigeria has a vibrant private sector. Some of the richest people in the continent live and work in Nigeria. So in my mind, and this is based on analysis shared by many others. The resources are in Nigeria. This is then essentially about a couple of things. One is good governance. We are in the middle of an election season, the current president has reached the end of a two year term. So hopefully as part of elections, candidates will present credible programs on how to fix Nigeria and we see it as our role to help promote a dialog around what are the solutions to the homegrown solutions. That's one..

"And this has gone on for. I think 12 years now, the conflict in the northeast. Boko Haram has split, meanwhile, there are now two factions and one of them called I square has quite a strong presence on the ground. They control an area where we believe there's a million people at least who do not have access to international assistance. They are cut off from the rest of the world. And are, as far as we can tell, we don't have access, but reports that filter through are that they are extremely vulnerable and really in need of urgent assistance. So that's a pretty horrifying picture. Just try and explain what it is that these people might need from day to day. So it really is as in so many conflict caused humanitarian need situation about basic needs, shelter, of course, many are displaced. So outside the non accessible areas there are at least 2.2 million people displaced as a result of the conflicts or we can reach them, but they are displaced. They are not in their original home. So shelter is an important need. Food, we are talking, we're ringing the alarm bell today about malnutrition and food insecurities of food is a second big need, a third one is water sanitation, water, safe water to drink. Those are the basic needs not to mention, of course, those displaced need access to basic services and especially education and health. So many of the children are out of school. Their education will be stunted. And they don't have access to proper health services. You say that the need is right now for 350 million, if not it's going to get worse because we're entering the lean season. I thought it was interesting that you mentioned that last year's lean season lasted longer than usual because of climate change. So how our climate shocks affecting the populations you really want to reach. So more generally speaking, I often hear in Nigeria, I've been there a little over 7 months now that the Sahara is moving south and with us Sahara moving south, meaning increasing desertification and deforestation. Because the northeast, it's the north. It's the northern part of Nigeria that is closest to Sahara and there are other parts of Nigeria notably the northwest that are affected by this. So the non conflict related part of this is desertification deforestation, which means agriculture becomes more difficult, which means that herders are moving south to find pasture for their cattle they're animals, which then leads in turn also in other state, for example, one of the three northeastern states to some conflicts between herders and farmers. So that's another way this is manifests itself. But the main issue really of desertification and deforestation made more complex by conflict is access to arable farmland and for herders to have their cattle grace. And of course, if you can't get there, you can't help. You can't put in place those development programs that are so needed. And I was going to ask you next about how you've seen the impact of the Ukraine war. How's that impacted on your work and on vulnerable populations in Nigeria? So initially I have to say there was some speculation sadly. There's war economy involved that as an oil producing country, Nigeria might actually benefit from the war because of rising oil prices. The unfortunate reality looking at it through that lens is that Nigeria has many problems with refining oil and thus actually imports refined oil, and thus there is a negative impact of the crisis also in these terms. The main impact, however, that we're seeing so far is rising food prices around the world. We try to prioritize local purchases, Nigeria, despite what I've just said in terms of the Sahara moving south and increasing.

Larry Taunton Deals With Shootings by Looking at Plain-as-Day Facts

"It. We're talking about the ivaldi massacre 19 children killed, murdered. What is the, what is the main point in your Twitter thread? I know what it is, but I want you to explain it. Yeah, sure. Well, I mean, Democrats have responded to this very predictably. I mean, they've seized upon this. Politicized it and made it all about, you know, how the Second Amendment is out of date. There need to be gun seizures, buybacks, further gun restrictions, all of these kinds of things. And that led me to really start thinking Eric about the fact that just a few years ago when I was writing my book around the world and more than 80 days, I can undertake in kind of the unique task of traveling to places where there had been mass shootings, almost all of them in Europe. And so I was at, you know, went to Stockholm, and I was interviewing people there. After the truck attack, a guy stole a beer truck and he drove straight down a pedestrian, a fashionable pedestrian district and just mowed down women and children. Westminster bridge in London, London Bridge. I went to Paris to Charlie Hebdo, where there were a number of people killed just a short walk away to the back to clan where about 90 were killed in the mass shooting there. It was also in Nigeria as you well know, and I was there, you know, to bring attention to the fact that many Christians, either they're horribly persecuted, there's just been another attack on Christians in that country in the last couple of days. And so when I see all this talk about gun seizures or, you know, how if we restrict gun the ability to buy guns to access them, then it's going to solve this problem. And I know that that just simply isn't true. First of all, the shootings that we see in Europe is very difficult to buy gun in Europe. And yet somehow these terrors all manage to get

Oh, I think they're going to get a lot of people. I'm just not, I'm not sure. Yeah, so I mean, that's a fine opinion to have. That's one way to look at it. I happen to disagree. I think I actually think and we're allowed to disagree on this. Of course.

"Selena good morning, how are you? Good morning, sunshine. How are you? I'm great. I need an update on John fetterman. The democratic nominee for senator will be facing Doctor Oz. I have tried to decipher what the story is on his health. What do you know? What I know is that he was, he in 2017, his doctor had told him that not only did he need to lose weight, he was a 400 pounds, but he also had a heart condition, and he needed to be taking blood thinner. You know, I mean, it really compartmentalizing it, but that's basically what they told him. What he did do is lose the weight. It was sort of dramatic, very quickly, he lost it. But he didn't ever go back to the doctor. Never took the blood center. And that is why he fell ill, it was not why he had the stroke, but that is why he fell ill and had to have the pacemaker. And so he never sort of revealed this and now that's all caught up with him. And his doctor put out a statement the other day, say, you know, saying in effect, you know, this is what happened. He almost died and we now have him in a pacemaker and taking the blood thinner and he's on the road to recovery.

"That's right, 54 members of the Tory party. Now the way it works in Great Britain, they're not going to an election just a bunch of the members of the Conservative Party have had it with Boris, and they send letters to something called the 1922 committee or the committee on 1922 or 1922 something or other. And the senior member of the party is the chair of that. And when he counts 15% of letters demanding a vote of no confidence, they have a vote of no confidence. And so Boris got hit with that this morning. The magic number of 54 was greeted. I think some Tory members of parliament were watching Boris get booed on his way into St Paul's Cathedral for the platinum celebrations yesterday and they said, you know, we're going to lose a couple of by elections this month and we're going to get crushed if Boris is the leader. So we better dump him now. We still have two plus years left and the majority we can get ourselves a new prime minister,

And we're never going to have Madonna, but today we have zuby with us. He's an entrepreneur. He's a rapper. A man with a fascinating background. I saw him first on my buddy's podcast trigonometry fans foster and constantin Kissinger zuby. Welcome to America first one on one. Hey, how's it going? Happy to be here. It's going very well so far so good. We are 90 seconds into this interview. And it seems to be going all right, but we have a ways to go. Let's start where my buddies Francis and constantin begin there. Superb interviews. How did you get to be where you are today? Where did you grow up? What's your training? What's your background? And perhaps the greatest interest to all of our millions of listeners across the nation. How did you get to be the world heavyweight powerlifter in the female category? Okay, well, that's a lot of questions there. So my name is zuby. I'm an independent rapper, author, host of the real talk with zuby podcast, public speaker and coach. I was born in England, my family background is originally from Nigeria. I actually grew up in the Middle East and Saudi Arabia, lived there for almost two decades and went to school there up until 5th grade. I then went to boarding school in the UK and studied computer science at Oxford University, which is where I also started my music career. And over the course of time, I have released 6 independent albums and EPs, sold tens of thousands of albums, independently, and yeah, I've added a lot of strings to the bow, started my podcast and wrote and released my first book in 2019. And have become well known as well for, I guess what you could call social or cultural commentary. So different people around the world know me for a different things.

"nigeria" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence

"South Korea's Samsung electronics is a tech behemoth. Its revenues aren't so far behind those of Apple, and it's got a cash pile of a $100 billion. It makes televisions, computers, more smartphones than any company in the world. It dominates the market for memory storage chips. What it does next is down to the company's new head Lee Jae Yong. After a succession as messy as the television show succession, he has big plans. To break into the far more complex and competitive business of making the chips that due processing. That won't be easy, but he said he'll be the last of the Lee family at the helm of the company, and he's got a legacy to build. Lee Jai young, known as Jay Lee in the west and in business circles generally, he's the third generation heir of the Lee dynasty that founded Samsung in 1938. It's a big weight of responsibility. Tamsin booth is The Economist's technology and business editor. So it was actually Jay Wiley's father who really created Samsung electronics as we know it as a giant in smartphones in memory chips in semiconductors. He transformed the firm and JY Lee has the task of taking the company on. And how has that been going so far? JY Lee has had an amazingly difficult Succession. First of all, in 2014, his father Lee, and he was incapacitated by illness. So JY, found himself in charge, but not really with a full mantle of power as it were. And then he became embroiled in a corruption scandal. So in 2015, there was a merger of Samsung C and T and jail industries. These are two affiliates. They emerged in order to help the Succession and in connection with that Jay was accused of bribing a woman called choice in cell, who was a confidant of former president park to get the merger through. He served two stints in prison. In any case, Jay was released in August on parole. He's been very apologetic with president moon stating that this was very much in the national interest. Okay, so now he's out of prison and he's in charge. What's the situation he's confronting? If you look operationally at it, the company's been doing formidably well because the pandemic accelerated digitization has stoked amazing demand for sunny conductors and gadgets and computers and it's just been a huge amount of tech related demand. It's done phenomenally well in smartphones and in memory chips in particular, but those areas are a little bit long in the tooth are already quite dominant in terms of market share. So there's a growth issue. There's a bit of a discount on the stock market valuation that investors would like addressed. There's no doubt that there are some long-term decisions that the company really does look to the family leader to be able to make. So that would be around mergers and acquisitions. And so now you have the sense that with the succession, secured, Jay Wiley can finally execute on his vision. And what is that vision? Well, you've got to distinguish between the Samsung Group and it's not a formal group. It's a sort of a loose agglomeration of affiliates and firms of which The Crown jewel is Samsung electronics. So the group level Jay is very much known for his initiatives in the pharmaceutical industry biologics and also in battery storage. But for Samsung electronics, Jay is leading a charge into logic chips. So how is it that he's going to be able to break into that business? It's not an easy one. Getting into logic is really hard. So Samsung electronics already dominates in memory chips and memory chips are, of course, what you store information in. Logic chips are the brains of computers and devices and success in memory is chiefly about economies of scale, cost, just producing a lot of chips. Whereas the logic business is much more complex from a technology point of view, your engineering, nanoscopic scales. When it comes to customers, they're looking for a lot more customization. So you're having to sort of anticipate customers needs and respond to them. And sometimes electronics is a little bit less used to that kind of interaction. And you've also got a big factor that a lot of people talk about which the to do with the structure of Samsung electronics. So it sort of essentially four different companies. There's a smartphones business, a home appliances business, there's semiconductors. There's also the display or the screens business. And that mix throws up kind of conflicts of interest. Conflicts in what sense? So, for instance, if your Apple wanting to buy semiconductors from Samsung electronics, you're not going to forget the fact that galaxy is your massive competitor for the iPhone. And TSMC, Taiwan's champion has no such conflicts of interest. And you can see that lately just in the last couple of years, Samsung electronics has fallen behind a little bit relative to TSMC on both the technology and the commercial side of things. TSMC has widened its market share position relative to Samsung electronics. But people in the industry are very optimistic about Samsung's long-term position. I mean, they just have the biggest ecosystem of semiconductor engineers. They've got huge capacity on CAPEX, they're spending $37 billion this year on both the memory and logic side. The newest development is that as China ratchets up military pressure on Taiwan, where TSMC is headquartered, there's a feeling that TSMC's customers may well want to diversify away, have more diversified supply chains not rely on TSMC just in case things go wrong and it falls under Chinese control. So that is to say this move into logic chips could also put Samsung electronics in the middle of a bigger geopolitical fight. That's right, again, while JY has been in and out of prison, semiconductor shortages globally have made the factor incredibly strategic. And indeed, one point of worry around the company while its leadership was in a sense a little bit absent that as the geopolitics change and as the U.S. and countries in Europe and China put a massive emphasis on domestic production of cutting edge chips that maybe South Korea would get sidelines somehow it sort of get bypassed in that sort of geopolitical shift. The other thing for Samsung electronics is really important to know is that, of course, China is a hugely important market. The Chinese handset makers buy a lot of chips from the company. And so, you know, you've got a situation where Samsung really needs to try to care for line amid U.S. China tensions. So a mix of challenges and opportunities what's your view on whether mister Lee's vision can, in fact, be brought to bear? Some of that's going to depend on Jay Wiley himself. I think he's got some luck in his favor for perhaps for the first time in a while. The company's just so well placed in the semiconductor industry, which is just a really hot place to be at the moment. And the question of whether it's going to go right for Lee is really crucial. I mean, he's going to be the last Lee family member really in managerial charge, making the strategic decisions. Last year, he declared that he wouldn't be handing on management rights to his children. And this clears the path to the top for Samsung electronics, executives, which perhaps will change the mood a bit inside the company. And whoever it is that does rise.

"Stereotyping has done too many in this country it should have elevated my sensitivities even more based on my words i failed in that regard in. It's on me and me alone. Otani is one of the biggest stars in all of sports. He's making a difference as it pertains to inclusiveness and leadership. I should have embraced that in my comments. Instead i screwed up in this day and age with all the violence being perpetuated against asian community my comments albeit unintentional were clearly insent insensitive and regrettable. There is simply no other way to put it. I'm sincerely sorry for any anxiety. I've caused with my comments on. I take this morning again. I am sorry. Unhappily happily reiterate these words more extensively tomorrow morning as well with regard to the nigerian national team comments that he made. Is there any part of this of the line being blurred between stephen. A smith respected gentlest. Who's covered basketball for a very long time. And stephen a smith entertainment figure on a show that is more entertainment than information. So it's not the idea that he didn't know who gave into it was it's the i wanna make the point. That will say lost a bunch of people. We've never heard of missing those. I'm going to do it. Dismissively and Kind of a funny joking kind of manner in the same way. That charles barkley doesn't know who people play for an assignment. Stugatz can't say honest. His last name like there are characters within the sports landscape who dip into these waters particularly about like players aren't brand names so to speak and it's not necessarily done with a level of malice or prejudice or whatever it's just to say like who'd is guy body of work and context in these circumstances by nothing. That is not where we are any more. A sentence can erase. Like you've got adam silver going out in. What is a racial controversy and a rachel controversy. He is coming out and putting his voice on a sentence shouldn't end the entirety of a career but where we are at the moment in terms of sensitivities and a reach for more equality is the context and body of work by next to nothing. You make this kind of mistake in this. Climate and the power of the people is such that voices will be heard on this and pressure will be brought an executives will go to stephen a smith and be like quick doubling down. Quit not apologizing. Put your name and your face and your voice on an apology and using this happened is well is people of these. Various cultures are now sticking up for themselves as the nigerian basketball team. Did when they released a tweet Their official count a one minute clip with no basketball analysis impure disrespect to the names of our culture. That's at least in part because stephen a. Was kind of insinuating. That gave vincent is going by vince. In the miami heat is going by a different name with nigerian national team and kind of set it derisively as well. So there's kind of a a cultural jab at nigerians as well. Let's talk about all this with howard. Bryant of metal arc media. He is one of the newest additions here to everything that we're doing around here. And he can. He's very good at slaloming through some of this stuff. That can be complicated and howard. Thank you as always for making time for us. You heard part of what it is that we were saying there and espn news always lands on your doorstep somehow and people want your opinion on some of this stuff so walk us through here what it is that we should be paying attention to around here. Well i i sort of thought that when this happened i i was on the tennis court to be honest and i came back and i saw the i saw a time line blowing up and i was like what happened now. Are we still talking about what happened last week. Are we talking. What happened now. So i mean. I think that both of the the comments both in nigeria comments and also the otani comments. It's just ask. I mean it's really great to say but it's bad but it's also not that surprising. I think that language is an extremely hot button for english speakers. I mean this is this goes back. I mean i was thinking about this thinking about it from a hockey standpoint. Remember back when when. Bobby clark was talking about too many europeans in the nhl. Remember back when. Andy rooney got busted on sixty minutes when he was talking about how baseball was too hard to follow. Because there were too many hernandez's in fernandez into you know too. Many latinos in the game. And i remember when i was when i was covering the yankees remember when men brian cashman took away all do gays translator because he said he's been in the united states long enough time to start speaking english and so this is something that is not unprecedented. Something that is part of a lineage. Here and it really is something that to me I mean it's it's it was bad no matter what i thought. I thought that what really struck me about. It was the the idea one. I get an especially you dan. I mean you get it miami. Of course i mean. That's the the premier bilingual city in the country. And so there's hot button there that people are trying that that is going to inflame people but a tiny is not even a citizen part of this. Do that really sort of hit me. Was that would stephen across cross so many lives there. 'cause you're looking at it. This is a global sport. And when you're thinking about how we navigate this country and now we navigate the world. English speakers are the ones that refuse to speak other languages. It's really we're the problem. He's not the problem where the problem one of the things that are mean was saying there about the line between an entertainer and journalist puts the responsibility. When you say where the problem on the viewer to be discerning and to make those distinctions and they don't make the distinction. There's no distinction right. Now between people look at they they look at media. I mean you wanna talk about. After losing language people look at media and they blanket everything is media. There's media in journalism and they're not the same thing i even close to the same and so i sort of felt like the stephen in particular. It's it's one of these responsibilities that we had on on. Espn in something that the network really didn't pay nearly enough attention to that. Journalists had to pay a lot of attention to was making that distinction between who's role is what it's not all the setting howard. What can you tell us about specifically what happened with the dismissal of the nigerian basketball team. The the look of it because it's not the same thing he doesn't have to apologize for that. It's simply a bad look. It's not some nice nigeria. Isn't getting the apology today. It it's asian americans and otani the end espn's viewers. That are getting the apology today. But that's a bad day. All around. And then jerry aside of this. What do you do with that while. I think what you do is you. You have to learn how to multitask a little better than what we're doing. I think that the reason obviously there are two things in this. That may get more. Asian americans specific and that is the violence in the country against asian-americans taken place. Right now also. Espn and in its rights holding issue as well. So you're dealing with a business issue also dealing with a societal issue. That's taken place in the country as speed that has real implications terms of people's safety and violence take place in the country. So i get the shift there the tilting toward that. But i think it's also to me. The nigeria part of it was insulting because of the way we'd historically treated africa. It's not a country. It's we we talk about africa. One place it's not one place specifically talking about nigeria and then you look at some of the barstool comments and some of the other comments out there to just the blatant disrespect to ward them as as athletes in aspires and. I think that it's something that you see as a specific issue in the nba because the nba is becoming more african and more international now than it's ever been as well so it and also that the nigeria as of place should we should obviously have nigeria map. That's key maggiano's country. This is not like it's something. We're not aware of nigerian basketball. I think that it was more of a hot A thing like the united states is not supposed to lose. And we're certainly not supposed to lose. It was clumsy and it looked and felt every bit as bad as it was thought that the the other piece of it too is the i mean. Obviously the players like okay. They're trolling out. There said you know our names now and it was it just struck me from a journalistic standpoint and just from a professional standpoint. That we're all a bit overextended people. Do they rely on us to be more than entertaining. This episode is brought to you by babble this summer. Get the most out of your travels abroad by learning the language of.

Since i was such a huge platform for people to for nusa spread video of the shoot scene of just the general violent by so many posted on there. I mean so. Many people go asir chains on there and it was due to twitter. And i remember jack dorsey ona. Ceo of Twitter louis active and proactive in trying to organize donations. Specific donations through organizations are willing to donate and organiz resources for protesters and it was really really helpful. Such platform that people bring their stories. I remember just going through different threads of like police. Brutality and everything has seconds ours. It was really amazing in botanic but nigerian government. It's as an offense. They took it as stamping on arthur. Who are saying. I remember the names. Major disney goes president. Say president go into the sites of the negative gay in and he wears like over the planted this or this and they were just making so many lives but then bad survivor instagram. Able to see so many lives and truth four coins and many people dying there. One is way too much. People died and government tried to coverage but platform twitter. Instagram and lights are places where we come free. And they're nigerian. Government both threats and dig child at the are. The bandits eventually found a very penske. Excuse or leasing. The president's tweets bans. Organize it to be banned is actually crazy because if i like sightseeing. Our president trump he was thinking is house was permanently suspended on the eighth of january. Twenty two on this guy had tweets on iraq because he tweeted about severe pathy times of racial slurs and whatnot and the media impact. The was his major influence on the us capitol riots on six january twenty one of debts and just major violence and threaten of knives which is a collision of two policies. So some people might be thinking they have the right president's tweets. Yes thing where you go up to do any websites or any app you teason season yet just like you re because i just under their wing balance they said you may not three threats and violence against individual group of people on our visa raza humane engage in targeted harassment of someone or a group of people and under his conduct. You may not promote violence against threaten or us other people on the basis of race. Ethnicity national origin chased and just etc. Like so many other things there and you see the president's tweets against the southeastern people from harassment if not a threat and just bring dredging such horrific experience and justin again being civil war from someone like him in position in the koch attention either a new and reviewing the sweets and it goes against our principles as a company. You can condone this. We this and retailers exactly but then the federal government a be the crazy. It's so sad to see that these people just take responsibility for something like punish for something or other are freesync simply ramifications of something and you are as an opportunity to slide you something that has been in the cooking for a while. I think since thousand fifteen. The nigerian government hasn't been trying to bring something called social media media bill and this is not an enduring actually mode wide. There's so many countries nations out there that are trying to impede or the have control over social media anything or everything manmade. There's a good site so it's a gun can be used to protect the company to take your life to cook. Come to stop stubborn. Take a life as well. So you think the social media can be used to promote peace new promote the truth promotes help and the freedom of rights as to end sars only used to pleads elections in two different things can be used to deceive people. It's the nature of things. So why trying to let him trying to have passed. Be rather than injure because the also taste bad thing. Truth is a bad thing and it just as if black as black and white. But it really isn't there i mean the only segue leaping is it black and whites christ and but seriously and this. This bill are building wants to pass will give them the authority to do stuff like like as they've done in this band permanent indefinitely but then permanently your twitter. Instagram banged. We wouldn't have access to these things or like. This is extremism ban internet's. That's crazy on guys of crowd control or Just to prevent riots and to they keep saying to prevent the spread of fake news. The other ones that pushing these fake news like why just so crazy and annoying and defects of this thing really crazy. They've media. I think on the seventh sixth or seventh of june when he said Nigeria's means me losing about soared around fifty thousand dollars per day for as long as you know. Twitter is banned. Lots of money invited to nine. That's a lot in lots of money and per day every day today. Such a very hob for people that are working just outside of your social media influences that people that brand new viewers are interested in on there. There are companies like piggy vests. Or or what is interact with us via you know twitter which is so much more accessible to hobbies goofy emails. I want it just so much more easier. Just the most of us which is like no access to the but then it's like it's more than just It's from the global communication platform being unable to flee express our rights of free speech on a worldwide scale like no more about challenges. Or whatever out. I mean just economic effects we are on our weenie disastrous. Long-term i mean is discouraged. Investors bleed tech investors from coming to nigeria. Like why would you want to eventually country wade becoming canoes op and banned something. You're going to news. Thousands hundreds of thousands of dollars in a day doesn't make any sense. You know it. Just be pushing seconds to go down and just like i said. Previously jobs are being suspended with ban. It really crazy and i fix which again lighted is the fact that just long-term case of uganda where they were just genuinely behalf to pay tarif tax kind of governments was license social media or the top. Ott's and like three times and you have to pay about nine thousand one. I think the equivalent of nine thousand per you just access and of course. Three months ugandans stopped using the internet. You imagine stopped using social media and internet just like that because of the busy assayed forward i guess. I don't nice. Dreamy movies like it's to be on rain. It's talk on what's obvious to do different things and then you have to pay for that such busy in the morning universe or whether the incurred century beating necessity yasser pay for. Its and he's just like why am i. A brother wasn't important. people were going to drop. Its especially this really affects our senior and then there's also the potential risk of using sketchy. Vpn applications soon go the ban and this could result in these attacks theft. Sorry or any other form of hacking. It's very possible because you don't know which the ban looking for the easiest ones blah blah blah and this concert video but Sir shock vpn. And it's just crazy big. These are exposing us to as governments university by doing this ban. Also this fever Waiting electorates are we are. I very rather plus eighteen and that'd be good for me. There's going to ban. I mean the next election definitely voting for one that deprives tweets out. I mean like what the hell is wrong with you and also these. Vpn's actually chrysler and so another reason. Why most people you know like might emerge results and people just not using data all just dropping from the internet because like if the license ott's in injure easy. Pierre bypass all the blocks band what and your your data slow was. The night's sleep for move individuals in. He's by global standards. And you know how to use a vpn which is now crouching more on that why bother so. This is so many so many more effects which are terrible and yes. I have been paid right now but they could is nine year very pointed questions. Actors like on our fundamental human rights. Yes because a number of fundamental rights. Now you have converge on these of social media platforms The freedom of association boots you to reach out to someone in germany someone in some code. You never heard before. Never seen before to talk to them. That's how that's gonna also jimmy over this most social media platforms and it's if the freedoms and fundamental human rights freedom of expression tweets and see how you feel or i'm tired you tweet. You can't fit in expression and freedom of information get think about five percents of nine of to get their news from. Something's happening you go into like the band was tweeted niger. Year ago we actually saw the announcements on twitter. I like why man. But then all these things among other rights in the future but they converge on social media at the same time. This makes social mediator a human rights and binding access to such a platform that for whatever words personifies human rights either our expressions associations a my rights information. It's deadly and scary infringements company. No scary actor. He is like can just cut off something. That's part of your life in many people. I know used to like lots but then say the call was people are spreading fake news crews unquote on. What's up they do these sites ban. What's up what happens. You can't talk to people anymore on instagram or any immediate dude. One music do any. And that's scary is as a company infringements and then personally afraid. What can we do. And for the record this disclaimer. I'm not by these just my own jam just balk doing. I'm like i said earlier. In this episode we can use because the way the nigerian government is act is implemented. The ban is mobile networks. So emptied likes you can access through these networks. See your inspector nights. And smell and other wifi providers. Nothing is a mobile networks. Theoretically be able to access tweets but then it's also raises an alarm which gone down line then. Next one these vpn's vpn's are virtual. Private networks basically muskie ovation so mobile networks. The nigeria. you can't use this thing in jer- zone so if you're creating a virtual private network you know i see the knights. Sushi did america or uk wherever you are you. You basically have access to twitter on. Amex is so many other contemporaries for that country. That's basically the essence of vpn's again search advise against it. Because i think it was on the seventh or is it the sixth of june twenty one. The federal government has announced. You know of There was this time but through the attorney general prosecutes in you know people who go against the bond people are using twitter and very crazy. Because it's what i said actually on it's like busy wi fi networks spectrum smile because there's wasn't much more easier to track you know if you're not using mosquito location and your content is vpn. You will be more likely to be caught. That is how can you don't have the come on twitter to see what's happening themis. Technically you get a key to yourselves. And just because the federal going after the president himself said when asked the persecutions the Crime going to face. You said they would know. Wind up being prosecuted your president guys. I'm not ninety but really look our president. Can you imagine what down. I read owner in fell road. They're like this is this is. This is a house a future this country. Because it's not just a friend of mine of these indian actually researching things and she said That there are so many issues going on issues of This year pa is a constant like this policy hasn't been constant he doesn't mean we need slumping evening uncomfortable am i wasn't earlier this year and it was just me. It was worse than last year. Been busily go in. You got lights thing a day but then as i like february through to june. Through to me either. You couldn't get consistent mites four or five hours a day six eight nine. Maybe you're lucky. And that's the capital coming back to stay inquiry learning learning states. And i don't think we've had lights for days at times which is how crazy one transformer that blew one or the other but really they just the general prominently. Goldman should be fixing this. Be looking for alternate deposit plays. We rely heavily on hydroelectric power. Why this us there Salah farms will do that. Mostly privates Primates over the private system but there are solar farms and the government could invest in solar energy wind. Energy do different things to help but no easter tom bundy focusing on. We see some of our politicians going abroad. Joying enjoying life live by their muni. What are you doing. and there's so many other issues. Education hunger like to provide fluids basic dealing what sides of so many polices good routes were to maintain ans. The list goes on what i was. Focusing on why not crazy and inside is painful and enraging on president. Going to just chew. But i'm pissed. I'm pissed i don't know what to say. What do i turn. This country is crazy like everything. The government sorry. Our government doesn't muslim times some municipal pointless or even worse against our own good. And what what what. What did did other subpoenas any president. What person harry did on the fourth was childish was very pet grow up. I'm sorry kind sir. Come on. Then what can we do. Try petitions send emails organizations. I think by the time. The band winds up organizations like amnesty international. The british and canadian missions the swedish embassy. Nine your design international bodies These these organizations and institutions. coordinate year. like you can't do this. The government shouldn't do this. You know they should take down the band. This is an infringement on our rights as as as humans fundamental human rights. They should stop doing this. Even domestic rather organizations like set up this company onto onto today In the socio economic rights and accountability project. This the exact organisation sue counteract this 'cause like accountability and think then the Not not the basketball association. Deny jaren bars. Asian the kind of because the attorney general which should be part of a major boss association One thousand like with the prosecuting People who go by the band but then anything who's the major ambassador domestic organizations thus survives. I know have you know code government that issue stop this and does are fighting and trying to push against the ban mrs coups. i'm meeting. This means that we actually have since people in push powers. What can we do. We could try petitioning with them rising petitions he gave out aids sutra and exert.

"Happened has opened a judicial panel acquired. But that's a story for another day. The core is. This is a great trae similar to my findings stats. Nigeria's of national security is so politically tainted that there's perhaps the limits to the to physical violence that the government would miss out against citizens organized police force to crush any sorts of political opposition. Or any sort of headway and sort of disturbances to the stability of the central regime. The leckie massacres. is actually a product of this another Where the government remains wholly focused control of political power in the center but delegates with a very freehand the the fighter repression pop any political dissent to specialized units will get the army would apiece force who accountable to anyone domestically or internationally are commit. Violence insists however depletes burger. Listened british colonial rule. So we're ause unit police squidward where them all politically align to Give him artie or they just politically aligned to just funding from the central government. They are allegiance to whoever is in power that point in time until the niger. Police force before independence owed. Its allegiance to the british governor. General at the time and insolence switch to the prime minister and said these forces are up don't necessarily have any political leanings towards parties as long as a party can take over control of the center. Their allegiance is to the continuation of the units fire funding arm and proximity to power. I constitutionally does Is their remedy for for this. Because obviously i mean i'm telling you this because constitutionally we have the almost identical problems in iraq the difference being that we don't have a specialized unit. The infants is that we have so Constitution that allows you know these leeway for for certain abuses of power to happen and so. Do you think that there is a remedy for this or do you think that is something. That's become too ingrained in the political sphere. In in in nigeria. Bring up the constitution a because niger tying has had four major revisions to its constitution. And at this point in time we're acting another nineteen thousand nine of metro constitution saddam. Last time we had an overhaul the interesting nigeria's constitution is that through the strings of military dictatorships firm nineteen sixty six all the way to nineteen ninety eight these dictatorships came in an either suspended the constitution completely or so to be bright entire constitution points in history where the supreme sovereign power was a federal military governed military council or prime minister or president of these institutions in their pollution actually entrenched and enshrined the interests of those parties though were able to violently take over political power and so when we talk about international talk about human rights and the rights of peaceful assembly and rights to political asian in nigerian is override in provision privatized stability of prioritize mitigating or minimizing sort of disruption to the country and so these provisions were actually introduced by military declarations miniature acts in the ridge leaders and a lot of these things have actually been passed into the nights nights so looking for remedies to this fisk repression of political dissent within the nigerian constitution. Itself is actually a futile exercise. However negeria is state parties cape a lot of international treaties agreements exist in a world where there's north instead become crystallized over time that meant to protect human rights in the individual agreement injury as pocket to is the room that which essentially establishes international criminal prosecution and protects the rights of citizens especially citizens so they're protesting peacefully. Now even let me difficult to propose political reform domestically. Niger is still constrained. But provision up to robes Until going into a peaceful protests up with meditated aid of shooting thou protesters with live ammunition goes against his grave violation of the room. Statistics that is why people have cold for national criminal investigation again. Like the nigerian constitution. International criminal investigation isn't something that can effectively deterred a government carrying them for precipice titties. As matter of fact is carried out much more grievous violations of the In recent years heard a buckle haram the terror deterrent organization in northeastern major when butter haram disintegrated into a full blown insurgency. Many parts of northeast injury puts under emergency legislation under state's emergency and according to amnesty international Lot of society organizations in humanitarian organisations the ground that would bring violations carried out against human rights of not bystanders sympathizers. Took around and face of it. It doesn't seem like a big deal those award Insurgency but why is it permitted that a government can some early execute in flattened villages that they suspect of being sympathetic to the political aim. Cement insurgent group take an active potent insurgency. And if there's a suspicion perhaps people have the right look. Perhaps they do have the rights to face. You process it. The rights to be investigated through judicial system. It shouldn't be that the states can go in there and carry out. Extra-judicial killings international criminal court at least since the twenty fifteen almost once every year has had a reason to open preliminary investigations into the niger government but the thing about international criminal court is that the principle of complementarity this principle states.

What then is the plate of the average nigerian and this for me struck a chord. because again you'd expect that someone who's got that kind of access should actually be able to get access to the best healthcare or even what's it called supports an kind of healthy needed.
