According to Dr Mohammed Abdulmalik Durunguwa, the NPC commissioner, overpopulation is a time bomb in Nigeria and may explode in 2050.

Dr Durunguwa noted that the nation’s population can’t be compared to the slim resources at its disposal therefore it could be very hard to cater for the entire population.

Speaking to Journalists at the NUJ Secretariat, Kaduna on Thursday, May 5, he said youths that are involved in criminal activities are all products of overpopulation that isn’t being managed well.

 
“The challenge we have at hand as a Nation is our population. We are doing everything possible at the national population Commission to change our narratives else in 2050 if we are not careful, Nigeria will become the most populous country in the world because Nigeria’s population is growing more than geometrics, compared to the resources we have and that is why we are having a different crisis in this country.

“The youths that are involved in criminal activities like the Boko Haram in the North East, Bandits, EndSars protesters and IPOB in the South East are all our children. This is where we begin to manage the kind of people we have, honestly speaking we should continue to think about this thing and I am telling you, that you Journalists God has blessed us in Nigeria with good Journalists who can write things. In fact, some can even write things that can turn this country upside down, either positively or negatively.

“So we must begin to send in the signal so that all of us can be able to sleep well in Nigeria and concentrate well because if we don’t manage our population, to God who made me, I don’t know where we will be running to.

“Any leader in this country that is not looking at this time bomb that is moving in this country, I swear, he is a liar and is not a true leader, such leader does not even know what he is doing.

“All this nonsense that is happening in Nigeria can be stopped, but we need sincere leaders, honest Leaders. If we don’t have leaders with these qualities I am telling you these things will not stop.

“Any time I have the opportunity I will always want to share a few things that can inspire people and also portray that I have gotten the privilege to serve this country and I happened to be in one of those places in this country where we need to ask ourselves questions. In fact, if we all sit down and ask ourselves questions now, how many are we in Nigeria, nobody will give you the answer.” Durunguwa said.

“If we play a season like we play and we win the Carabao and fight for the title until the end, I think it’s a good season,” Klopp told TribalFootball

“The FA Cup is a massive competition. It felt great. It takes pressure off and that’s what makes it more enjoyable.

“It would be massive if we win in a few weeks’ time in the Champions League. But we play the most experienced Champions League team on this planet.

“We aren’t massive favourites. It’s an open game and every little advantage we can get is good. They have already won the league already. Between now and then, two massive games.”

Johnny Depp hit me on our honeymoon - Amber Heard claims

The piece did not name Depp but his attorneys, however, have said that the article “incalculably” damaged his reputation and career. She has countersued him for $100m.

The case being tried in Virginia has resumed for a fifth week, and in previous court hearings Depp had told his side of the story while Heard had begun some of her testimony.

In court on Monday, May 16, Heard tearfully told jurors that she believed she’d likely “not survive” if she had remained married to Mr Depp, 58.

“I was so scared that it was going to end really badly for me,” she said. “I really didn’t want to leave him. I loved him so much.”

She alleged that he attacked her while aboard the Orient Express train in Asia after their February 2015 wedding, claiming that he struck her and held her by the neck while in their sleeper compartment.

“He was squeezing my neck against the railway car for what felt like a very long time,” she said.

She said she recalled thinking he could “kill me”.

“I remember being scared that he wouldn’t mean to do it,” she said.

In another instance, Ms Heard described a “week of hell” after Depp allegedly became jealous because she was offered a role with James Franco. She claimed he punched her and threw her into furniture.

While Ms Heard said that the marriage was “at times, very loving”, it deteriorated over time to a point in which tension and violence became “almost normal”. They divorced in 2017, after two years.

She also claimed that Depp would frequently self-harm during their arguments.

“In fights he often would cut his arms or hold his knife to his chest or draw blood, superficially at first,” she said. “He also put cigarettes out on himself.”

Attorney Camille Vasquez, Depp’s lawyer questioned the witness over her prior testimony, questioning why there were so few photos and medical records to back up claims of physical injuries from her alleged beatings.

Heard countered that she didn’t take photos or videos of the beating because she was embarrassed to be a victim of abuse and “other than my therapist”, she relied on makeup to cover bruises and ice to reduce swelling.

In a heated back-and forth, Ms Vasquez forced Ms Heard to acknowledge that she had “pledged” to donate the entirety of her $7m divorce settlement with Depp to charity but was yet to make any donation.

She also noted that her client had not once looked Ms Heard in the eye over the course of the trial. “He can’t,” Ms Heard responded.

In his own testimony earlier in the trial, Mr Depp said that he never struck Ms Heard and told jurors that she had a “need” for conflict and violence.

On Monday, jurors heard a number of audio clips of the former couple arguing. In one clip which Heard can be heard saying she hit Mr Depp.

“I was hitting you. I was not punching you,” she can be heard saying. “You’re not punched.”

According to Ms Heard, she sometimes “reactively” hit Mr Depp and claimed that she was referring to the “disparity” of their strength.
