Top 5 Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Top 5 sexually transmitted Disease in Nigeria

Sexually transmitted disease are also known as Venereal Diseases are diseases that are transmitted from one person to the other through sexual activity, this incudes anal , vaginal or MouthAction.
The rate of sexually transmitted disease and rapes especially of the underage (child rape) has become a major public health challenge in Nigeria
The high rate of prostitution and the glorification of commercial sex activities and schemes in higher institutions of learning has also exacerbated the level of sexually transmitted disease in the country. Teenagers are not also left out as their tendencies to explore new things and prove to their parents and peers that they have come of age has landed many in hospitals for all the wrong reasons.
As sex divert more teenagers from class rooms to maternity wards, unfaithful husbands and promiscuous wives have also brought home diseases from one night stands/ accidental quickies and destroyed their families.

At public health Nigeria, we have provided the list of the top 5 sexually transmitted diseases based on published studies and how to avoid them.

Gonorrhea is the most prevalent sexually transmitted disease (STD) in Nigeria. In fact, in 1963, WHO found Lagos to have the highest gonorrhea rate in the world? Recent surveys report gonorrhea prevalence to be as high as 28.1%. Some studies show a clear association between gonorrhea and male / female infertility. Penicillinase producing Neisseria gonorrhea prevalence varies from 44.4% in Zaria to 80% in Ibadan.
There are major several complications that arises in the event that a gonorrhea remains untreated, this could be related to the body tissues, reproductive capacity and deformities in new born see full details in the link below

According to UNAIDS, The number of people living with HIV in Nigeria is between 2, 600 000 – 4, 500 000 more than double the population of some states. The prevalence rate of the disease among Adults aged 15 to 49 is 3.1%. HIV is a sexually transmitted disease that has no cure currently.
Rivers, Taraba and Kaduna are the top three states with the highest level of HIVAIDS infection in Nigeria while Ekiti, Zamfara and Bauchi has the lowest rates. Globally more than 33 million people are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
HIV/AIDS has complicated the lives of millions in Nigeria, before the advent of free antiretroviral drugs many perished. In addition, due to the high rate of stigma many infected individuals are not taking advantage of the free anti-retroviral drugs and screening programs available. While many others who are infected, unknowingly infect their loved ones because they do not know they carry the virus.
Find all you need to know about HIV/AIDS below

3. Trichomonasis 
The Federal Ministry of Health reported the National average prevalence rate of
9.8% for trichomoniasis. The condition is caused by the one-celled protozoan organism Trichomonas vaginalis which is transmitted during sexual activity. It could also be spread by sharing intimacy gadgets or the used of intimacy gadgets that have been contaminated with the disease causing organism.
About 70 percent of people with trichomoniasis don't experience any signs or symptoms.
Having trichomoniasis can also cause genital inflammation that makes it easier to get infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, or to pass the HIV virus to a sex partner. See link details below candidiasis.

4. Candidiasis
The Federal Ministry of Health reported the National average prevalence rate of
9.62% for Candidiasis.
Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by yeasts that belong to the genus Candida. There are over 20 species of Candida yeasts that can cause infection in humans, the most common of which is Candida albicans. Candida yeasts normally reside in the intestinal tract and can be found on mucous membranes and skin without causing infection; however, overgrowth of these organisms can cause symptoms to develop.

5. Syphilis
The incidence of syphilis has also gone up by 134% in men over the last five years. Syphilis.
Syphilis is a highly contagious disease spread primarily by sexual activity, including oral and anal sex.
Syphilis is caused by the bacteria Treponema pallidum and it is the only known sexually transmitted disease to cause madness. Yes long-term infection with syphilis can cause brain damage and blindness.
The disease can complicate the life of an individual in the long run if left untreated. There are 4 stages of syphilis each with its distinct features.


The truth about Staphylococcus

By now you must have noticed that we omitted staphylococcus aureus from the list, yes unlike what you see quacks advertising in buses and vans, Tvs and radio Staphylococcus aureus infection is not considered as a sexually transmitted disease ,
Staphylococcus aureus is a common bacteria that many people have on their skin or in their nose. It can be transmitted via skin to skin contact. Although the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strain has been implicated in many infection the condition has not been classified as such.

Shekarau Dispels Rumours He is Forming a New Party

Shekarau Dispels Rumours that He is Form­ing a New Party

An associate of the former Governor of K­ano State and immediate past Minister o­f Education Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, Am­b Ibrahim Bala Aboki has distanced his p­rincipal from any attempt to distabilise­ the party.

Speaking earlier today with the Tsuntsu ­Hausa Newspaper correspondent monitored ­from Kano, Ambassador Aboki insisted th­at the said meeting only existed in the ­imagination of those who concocted the s­tory, emphasising that Governor Shekara­u is committed to repositioning the part­y to take its rightful place in the Nige­rian political landscape.

It will be recalled that an online media­ portal ( Not Tsuntsu ) had carried news­ that the former Governor, Governor Lami­do, Mantu and others were planning to fo­rm a new party an assertion Aboki desc­ribed as non existent.

Speaking further he urged supporters to ­disregard such reports as mere hallucin­ations in the minds of jobless reporters­ who sole aim is to peddle falsehood.

It's amazing to hear APC shout corruption, in the eyes of self appointed Special adviser on Unsubstantiated Allegations Comrade Adams Oshiomole, everyone in the PDP is a thief, while not holding forth for anyone who have diverted public funds, I sincerely believe that The APC must start the cleansing from within its fold, a case of removing the speck in your eyes before taking out the log from the other man's eyes

See what the Executive Governor of Bauchi state have to say on who funded the 2015 General Elections for APC.

‎"Amaechi brought 80% of the money the party used for the elections"

His Excellency, Mohammed Abubakar.
Executive Governor, Bauchi State.
Live, @ChannelsTV

According to the APC

"N40billion will come from donations and contributions from the party’s elected members including state governors"

See citation below

If you do the Maths

80% of 40 Billion is 32 Billion

80% of 50 Billion is 40 Billion

Either way the Governor is saying AMAECHI contributed between 30-40 Billion Naira to the APC campaign.

How did Amaechi come about such funds?

Was the monies for the Portharcourt monorail inflated or diverted ?

Was that why a concrete Pillar under Amaechi was constructed for 100 million Naira?

See for your self.....

The completion date of the Port Harcourt Mono Rail project is unknown. It covers just 4Km or 50 naira by Taxi ( A trekking distance) and has gulped $1.2 Billion or N180B.

Amaechi told us that each Piller cost him 100 million Naira

The entire Abuja Kaduna (180 KM)  Speed Rail cost GEJ 500 million USD

 ‎The entire Ethiopian Mono rail a distance of 46 Km cost 475 Million USD
Governor Amaechi had previously denied the tag APC ATM
The governor challenged his accusers to provide evidence or bank account through which he was sending money belonging to the state to APC, while also adding that the party is capable of funding its activities.
He said: “Rivers State Government has no money to fund the APC. They have been accusing me of using Rivers money to fund the APC. The APC is a big party. So, it can fund its activities.”

‎ General Buhari and the APC have no Moral Justification  to ask anybody to explain anything until Amaechi who is one of them has explained to the Nigerians how he came about the money he expended on the APC campaign.

Discerning minds must have realized by now that the "Kidnap" of the Rivers State Resident Electoral commissioner on the orders of the  chairman of the Intelligence sub-committee of the APC Campaign organization and Current Director of State Security services Lawan Daura is not a coincidence. This is despite the fact that a competent tribunal is currently seating over the Rivers election petition.

It is clear therefore that the Coffers of the Rivers state Government is of prime importance to the survival of APC as a party hence the resort to Illegal, Unconstitutional and Underhand practices to subvert the will of the Good people of River state.

May God continue to bless Nigeria and Nigerians

This Statement By Buhari Can Set Nigeria On Fire (Video Update) -Oche Joseph O

It was Carl Shurz who said that  " you cannot subvert your neighbours rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own.
‎The Niger delta and by extension the South South south East Geo- political zone produce over 90% Of Nigeria's crude.

Till date crude oil Export still account for over 80% of Nigeria's export earnings.

Taking a critical look at the lopsided nature of recent appointments ,the complex "ethnoreligioous" composition   of the Nigerian state, this statement by General Buhari can set the nation of Fire

“Going by election results, constituencies that gave me 97% can not in all honesty be treated, on some issues, with constituencies that gave me 5%. I think these are political realities. While, certainly there will be justice for everybody but the people who voted, and made their votes count, they must feel the government has appreciated the effort they put in putting the government in place. I think this is really fair”

President Muhammadu Buhari.

The President must desist from sectionalising   the country and   see himself as father to all , Yes it is correct to reward support but openly coming out to tell a region that accounts for 90 % of your earning that they will be "punished" for voting for your opponent who incidentally is their son,  is a recipe for anarchy and return to the days of lawlessness just that this time it will come with the blessings entire states and communities.

The North gave President Jonathan the least number of votes in 2011 but the North benefited the most from the Jonathan administration.
Over 402 Almajiri schools were built , the First High speed rail in sub-Saharan Africa went to the North , Massive rice cultivation and empowerment of Northern rice Farmers , 9 of the 11 brand New Universities established by President Jonathan were located in the North, the contract for the Mambila Hydro electric plant is the biggest contract awarded by the Jonathan Administration .

Inflicting more pain  on the South South after the defeat of their Son by Almajiri votes in the words of Gov Kwankwaso  leaves much to be desired.

May God Continue to Bless Nigeria and Nigerians!

1. The wife that wins all arguments with her husband is not wise. The home is not a law

2. The wife that uses sex as a weapon in the home - placing embargo, going to bed in jeans shorts and
trousers -lacks wisdom.

3. The wife that uses the modern trends and laws of "women's rights" to insult or ridicule her husband simply makes a fool of herself.

4. A woman that makes her home devoid of peace
through bickering, nagging and quarrels needs help.
A man should be eager to run away from office to be at home, for that should be the safest and closest place on earth for him.

5. Modern-day equality in marriage does not mean competition, It simply means partnership. Taking advantage of such equality to turn around and become the defacto head of the home and oppress the man is tantamount to playing with fire. If you destroy your home, soon you will be the boss of an empty home.

6. A wise wife makes the man feel so good that he
assumes that he is the head. Once he gets that
feeling, the woman gently wields her power and the head actually turns to wherever the neck wants without a protest.

7. A wife that does not pull herself away from
friends' influence and advice or even from the
control of her mother and father will have herself to blame.

8. When a man is looking for a wife, he bypasses
women of different shapes and sizes to choose a wife But soon after childbirth, many women hide under the excuse of childbirth to let go of themselves. Many stop bothering about their looks,shape, dressing, etc.
Within 5 years of marriage, people start wondering if the wife is the man's aunt, even though she is 7 years younger. Her defence is that if he truly loves her, he should love her the way she is but when looking for a wife, he saw people like the present YOU and ignored them and settled for the former YOU. Today, you go to bed smelling of onions.... You go to bed wearing grandmothers' clothes. Why are you playing with your marriage? Love is not about looks - we know But looks enhances love and marriage There is a difference between someone disfiguring herself and the person being disfigured by an accident. Please don't be complacent. As hard as it may be, work on looking like you were when he first saw you and began the chase.

9. If every night you are tired, sleepy, sore, down
with headache or fever, "not in the mood," you are a joker, a serious comedian!

10. If your children suddenly become more
important to you than your husband, you need

11. If you assume that as the woman, only you need to be pampered and fussed over while the man is a stone that has no emotions, you need to be pitied.

12. A woman that has the mind of a wife does not
excite her husband. Wives are usually complacent
and presumptuous. A wife must strive to have the mind of a girlfriend, A girlfriend is always nicer, sweeter, more loving and always thinking of ways to wow her sweetheart; a girlfriend does not try to win all arguments, does not call the man a "useless man", is not careless about her looks or dressing, always smiles and laughs with the man, sends the man sweet
messages and calls, etc. Are you your husband's
girlfriend in word and in deed?
