Then-sophomore pitcher John Kuchno (45) throws the ball during a game against Northwestern May 6, 2012, at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 4-1.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorEven though Columbus is currently experiencing some of its warmest temperatures this winter, the Ohio State baseball team isn’t quite tepid enough.A week after splitting a four-game tournament slate in Florida, OSU (2-2, 0-0) looks to bounce back as it returns to the Sunshine State this weekend for its second tournament in as many weeks.The Buckeyes are set to be a part of the UCF Tournament in Orlando, playing host Central Florida Friday, The Citadel Saturday and Oklahoma Sunday.Redshirt-junior pitcher and first baseman Josh Dezse said it is important OSU has a productive week of practice and rolls into this weekend with a mindset to win.“They are going to be three great teams. These are teams we can’t take lightly. Any games we can’t take lightly if we want those 40 wins to get into the national tournament at the end of the year,” Dezse said. “We’re going to go down, we’re going to play Buckeye baseball like we know how to play, and hopefully the outcome is in our favor.”Even though Central Florida has a reputation for a being a strong ball club — one that has made it to the NCAA Tournament two of the last three years — junior outfielder Pat Porter said OSU should be in the thick of it Friday.“It should be a good game. I hear they have some pretty good guys and they’re a pretty solid team,” Porter said. “I think we’re a really solid team too though and we can definitely hang with them.”Senior pitcher Greg Greve and junior pitcher Ryan Riga look to set the tone for the Buckeyes in Orlando as the top two starting pitchers in OSU’s rotation.Riga, who led the Buckeyes to a 1-0 win over Auburn Feb. 15 with six shutout innings was named Big Ten co-Pitcher of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.“Riga was just on point against Auburn. We couldn’t ask him to throw a better game than that. It was very impressive,” Dezse said.Junior pitcher and closer Trace Dempsey said the Buckeyes have to work on slowing down the game and other fundamentals this week in practice.“We got exposed in a couple areas of the game. It showed there is always stuff to improve on,” Dempsey said. “We’re going to work on that this week here at practice, get a good week of practice in and head down to Orlando.”Scoring no runs in the first or second innings of their first four games, the Buckeyes are aiming to get baserunners on early in Orlando, Porter said.“We talked about how important each pitch of the game is and how important getting the first batter on base is,” Porter said.Dempsey added that even if the Buckeyes do get behind early, they have the ability to compete in any situation.“We can play from behind and we can come out hot early — we can play all facets of the game,” Dempsey said.After missing all of last season with a stress reaction in his back, Dezse said he was relieved to get a hit in the Buckeyes’ first game of the season against Connecticut last weekend.“It was really nice because I know I was stressing just a little bit. It’s been a while since I’ve been on the field and getting that (hit) out of the way really loosened me up,” Dezse said.With the first weekend behind them and the season underway, all that matters for OSU moving forward is getting victories, Dezse said.“Obviously, we started out hot with two wins and we played OK, but then OK wasn’t to our expectation,” Dezse said. “We expected to play a little bit better than that. What we take away is we have some things to work on.”First pitch between OSU and Central Florida is set for 7:05 p.m. Friday.
Former OSU cornerback Gareon Conley speaks with the media on March 5 at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorINDIANAPOLIS — If you ask Gareon Conley, he could be the 2017 NFL Draft’s top cornerback. Although the hype around OSU’s secondary has been centered around Marshon Lattimore and Malik Hooker, Conley’s combine numbers just might show why teams should not forget how good he is.Conley came into the 2016-17 season as the top cornerback for Ohio State after Eli Apple left the Buckeyes and was selected in the first round by the New York Giants. While Conley might have been listed as the No. 1 corner, his teammate Marshon Lattimore stole the show, and is now considered to be the best cornerback in this draft.While Conley is pleased with seeing his teammates receive recognition for his ability, he could easily be considered as the top player at the position himself. He said he feels the wide range of skills he brings — from press-man coverage to playing nickel — separate him from the group.“I feel like all the corners here obviously have talent, or we wouldn’t be here,” Conley said. “So I set myself apart mentally, with my mental toughness and being able to handle adversity on the field and snapping clear. I feel like that sets me apart.”Conley’s athleticism has put him on numerous team’s radars, but hasn’t quite put him ahead of his teammates. Sometimes the secondary player’s fans forget from OSU in 2016-17, Conley still feels he is right up there with both Lattimore and Hooker.“I don’t feel forgotten about,” Conley said. “I embrace everything that I get, and I take advantage of everything that I’ve been given. And I congratulate them for everything they’re getting too.”Finishing his college career with 91 total tackles, 15 passes defended and six interceptions, Conley has the stats to show he can be productive. However, the biggest questions moving ahead are whether Conley can play tight with NFL-level receivers.Even with that question mark, Conley possesses the kind of speed that can close gaps quickly.“I plan on running a 4.4,” he said. “I’m trying to get a 4.3.”Former Buckeyes Curtis Samuel busted off a 4.31 40-yard dash in his two attempts at the combine, and while Conley might not be that fast, he could potentially get under a 4.4.The secondary class for this year’s NFL Draft is especially deep, and could cause Conley to slip slightly. After being projected as a potential first-rounder early this season, he has since slipped down draft boards, and could find himself picked in the second round.Regardless, Conley said he is going to continue to fight.“I think about it, but I use it as motivation,” he said.Conley will be hearing his name called early in the draft, but will likely see multiple cornerbacks — including Lattimore — selected before him. And as always, Conley will stand by his fellow Buckeyes, and accept what is placed before him, which might be a product of his time in Columbus.“All the experiences on and off the field at Ohio State have made me a better man.”
Brian Gough and his wife Trixie. Trixie was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer after finding a small lump in her breast in late 2010 and died in 2015. Now, Brian has questioned if she was one of the women who could have been saved or lived longer. PHE and the NHS are working round-the-clock to offer advice and ensure that every person affected will be offered appropriate follow-up. Arrangements have been put in place to ensure those affected can access services appropriately, and that those already in the system will not have their care disrupted.” Show more Laura Preston, from legal firm Slater Gordon, said the numbers who could seek compensation were “huge”.The lawyer said the new scandal could result in the biggest legal action against the NHS ever mounted.But Ms Preston, who was deputy lead solicitor fighting for compensation for victims of rogue surgeon Ian Paterson said that unless a bespoke scheme was set up for victims, they could be left fighting for years.“It could be absolutely massive but something that may take a very long time depending on how pragmatic the Government wants to be,” she said. Jeremy Hunt has held furious meetings with the agency chief, demanding to know how the failures took so long to be detected.As pressure mounted, Mr Selbie on Thursday night issued a statement, offering a “heartfelt and unreserved” apology on behalf of PHE and NHS breast screening services.And legal experts warned that victims of the scandal could face a long battle to secure compensation – with many likely to die before receiving any payout. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt makes his statement to MPs in the House of Commons on WednesdayCredit:PA “I think Mr Selbie should consider his position very carefully, he should resign,” she said. Around 140,000 women who missed scans have since died, with estimates that up to 270 deaths were caused by the absence of checks.Health officials have now embarked on efforts to contact around 300,000 women in their 70s, but have said it could take up to a month to send all the letters out, and six months for those who want mammograms to undergo them. The error affected 450,000 womenCredit:Rui Vieira/PA The NHS breast cancer screening scandal last night became a growing fiasco, with victims calling for the resignation of the man in charge.Helplines were overwhelmed with calls within hours of opening, while warning letters to alert women they had missed checks were sent to the wrong patients.Public Health England (PHE) is attempting to contact around 300,000 women who were denied screening checks they should have been offered over the last decade.But as the first warning letters arrived on Thursday, recipients included cancer sufferers who had never been excluded from the programme – raising concerns about whether those who missed checks will be reached.Victims of the scandal called for the resignation of Duncan Selbie, the head of Public Health England (PHE), who has remained out of public view since the blunders emerged on Wednesday. Patricia Minchin should have been offered a mammogram in 2013. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015Credit:Tom Pilston for The Telegraph They criticised the career NHS manager for being slow to apologise to women affected by the scandal, including those whose lives it may cost.Helplines set up by PHE received 8,000 calls on Thursday, with cancer sufferers saying it had taken them more than an hour to get through.Meanwhile bereaved relatives said they were told by call-handlers to put a complaint in writing. The debacle has increased pressure on Mr Selbie, the head of PHE, who was already facing questions about how “administrative incompetence” meant blunders went undetected for years. Ministers have said cancer sufferers may be able to secure payment if they can prove harm was caused by delays in diagnosis. But they have failed to announce any kind of fast-track scheme which would automate compensation for those who were denied a check and went on to develop cancer.The problems began with an error made to computer programmes in 2009, which meant around 450,000 women aged between 68 and 71 were not invited for mammograms.An independent inquiry is to examine how it was that PHE, which took responsibility for the programme in 2013, failed to detect the problems – even as screening rates fell to the lowest rates in a decade. Cancer sufferer Helen Jarvis, 72, was among those attempting to contact PHE’s helplines on Thursday, eventually getting through after an hour of trying.The retired NHS therapist, from Newport Pagnell, has recently begun treatment for cancer, after finding a lump in her breast, and has since learned she is among hundreds of thousands of women who were never offered the scan which could have saved them.And Lee Towsey, from Brighton said he was told to send a complaint in writing when he called the helpline to ask whether his mother – who died of breast cancer in 2012 – was among those affected by the failings.“All I was told by the guy was ‘yes she was probably one of those women’, and the phone went dead,” he said.PHE last night said it had twice increased capacity in order to cope with demand yesterday, and would bring in extra call handlers today.And in a statement released on Thursday night, Mr Selbie said: “On behalf of PHE and NHS breast screening services, our apology is heartfelt and unreserved. She said: “I saw the letter and was just confused in honesty, I’m going to call them because I think this whole disgraceful error will have caused enough people anxiety and upset, but to now be sending letters to the wrong people, what is going on?”Describing the chaos as “disgraceful,” she called for the resignation of PHE’s chief executive, saying he should “have a conscience” over the failings by his agency. Diane Loxam, 71, from Lancaster, was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, after having a mammogram the year before, following a screening invitation.Yet she is among those who received a warning letter from PHE on Thursday saying she had been affected by the blundersThe grandmother-of-three said she was left “anxious and confused” – and concerned about whether the failed targeting of the letters meant women who needed to be recalled were missing out. “The numbers we are talking about are huge.“It would be a tragedy if these victims don’t get some reassurance that this is going to be dealt with quickly.”Without a bespoke scheme, individuals would need to try to prove that their harm was caused by the delay in diagnosis -something the solicitor said is notoriously difficult.

Stay on target ‘Marvels’ Expands Marvel’s Podcast UniverseDamon Lindelof Starts Beef With Alan Moore Ahead of HBO’s ‘Watch… “Growing up in an unhappy family in a small New England town, Jane dreamed of escaping to New York City to study art and live a life of independent adventures. Soon after arriving, she takes a job as a nanny for a mysterious, powerful businessman, Rochester, and his lovable but lonely daughter, Adele, in a lavish apartment with unsettling secrets. Jane soon finds herself drawn into a world of intrigue, danger, and romance that takes her far beyond her childhood dreams.”Jane weaves a personal, yet enchantingly, and realistic and grounded story that’s one of the best-inspired comics of the month. Or year. Yeah, it’s just that good.JANE(W): Aline Brosh McKenna (I): Ramón K. Pérez (C): Irma Kniivila with Ramón K. Pérez (L): Deron Bennett Inspired by Jane Eyre by Charlotte BrontëJane, written by Aline Brosh McKenna with art by Ramón K. Pérez is the reimagining of the classic novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë for Archaia, an imprint of BOOM! Studios. The graphic novel sets itself out from the pack for its intimate and unique narrative that grips you from the very first page.Aline Brosh McKenna doesn’t just recreate the story of Jane Eyre but instantly makes it her own. She sets Jane’s goals threading her wants, feelings, desires, ups, and downs throughout the story. McKenna’s approach to the novel fascinated and inspired me. In particular, the way we see life through the very private and secret life of Jane herself. Jane is a woman that is coming into her own and profound within her thoughts. She observes, which McKenna makes a huge part of the story for a fantastic reason. It connects to her art and her way of dealing with others.Another captivating part of Jane is following our leading lady through her journey of becoming her woman. We witness her finally not being alone and what that comes with. She forms her own chosen family and makes moral decisions as she figures out whats right and wrong, good and evil and so on. The original novel deals with this theme as well, but McKenna takes it a little deeper. She brings it into the new age, especially as she tries to figure out her aspirations and dreams through her art and job.Ramón K. Pérez is an absolute craftsman of an artist. I can honestly say, without a shadow of a doubt, that I was blown away by Pérez pages for this graphic novel. Jane is a remarkable work of art that reads personal and feels personal through the art. He takes Jane’s perspective and observations, bringing you fully into her point of view. He brings that feeling and frame of mind not only within in the art but the colors Irma Kniivila provides with his assistance. They lace the graphic novel with a combination of arresting moody, but rich, warm colors. It creates a perfect balance for the story as a whole. It even amps up the romance brewing between Jane and Mr. Rochester so well.Last, but certainly not least, Deron Bennett letters are so elegant. He brings a deeper and intimate vibe of being in Jane’s head together. He takes the script, and with the words, you read the intensity of the couple, the fight or flight reflexes of Jane and more. Jane reads so much like a personal diary between Jane and the reader. It invokes the feeling as if you’ve been carrying off this long distance friendship forever.Jane is a lovely and out of this world inspired adaptation of the original novel. It’s natural, sensible and above all else, true to itself. Jane is now available on Comixology, your local comic shop and where other books are sold.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Hours after one poll placed Broad Front Party candidate José María Villaltain the lead in Costa Rica’s presidential race, challengers went on the offensive, saying the upstart candidate would reshape the country along the lines of the most notorious socialist governments in the region.The poll, released by the daily La Nación on Sunday, showed the Broad Front Party nominee ahead of National Liberation Party (PLN) candidate Johnny Araya – the first poll to have the ruling party’s candidate in second place.Araya spoke to La Nación later that day, saying that he offered a more moderate ideology than Villalta.“He has recognized part of the discontent that exists. We are going to work hard with that discontent because there’s no doubt that the Villalta option does not suit Costa Rica,” Araya told La Nación. “It’s a dangerous proposal for our democratic system. They have not hidden their ideological inclinations, nor their sympathy for the Venezuelan regime.”La Nación also spoke with Libertarian Movement Party candidate Otto Guevara, who compared Villalta’s policies to those of Hugo Chávez’s former government in Venezuela, the Sandinista government in Nicaragua and Cristina Kirchner government of Argentina. Guevara, who also saw his poll numbers rise, tying for second with Araya, indicated his campaign would shift to focus on Villalta.“That page of polarization between Otto and Johnny has turned, and now comes a new transitional step,” Guevara told La Nación.Villalta took to social media to urge his followers that the new poll was only the beginning of a long fight.“Do not demonize the polls, nor blindly believe in them,” Villalta wrote on his Facebook page.“The most important thing about the UNIMER poll is that it begins to reflect what we are seeing in the street, which we perceive every time we visit the community.”While La Nación’s poll has stirred the election, a more recent survey by CID Gallup for the business newspaper La República still had Araya as the strong frontrunner. Gallup reported 45 percent respondents supporting Araya, with 21 percent supporting Villalta. Guevara earned 15 percent support. Gallup polled from Nov. 23 to 27.La Nación polled from Nov. 8 to 20, reporting Villalta with approximately 19.5 percent support and Araya and Guevara at 16.5 percent support. La Nación’s numbers included those who had no preference or who were undecided, which totaled 35.5 percent.Full results below. Facebook Comments Learn About Tableau
Thai Airways International (THAI) has entered talks with Airbus to buy as many as 30 next-generation A350 jets and an additional six A380 aircraft.The talks were separately confirmed by THAI president Piyasvasti Amranand and Airbus’s Southeast Asia sales director Jean-Jacques Boissin, the Bangkok Post reported. If the delivery is made, it will represent the largest aircraft order in the 50-year history of the flag carrier. Mr Boissin estimated that THAI needs thirty A350s over the next decade to replace the A340s, Boeing B777-200ERs and B777-300ERs it uses on long-haul routes. However, Airbus may not be able to deliver the A350s to potential new customers soon enough due to a large order backlog, now at 530 planes from 33 customers. Airbus could deliver the A350 aircraft to THAI by 2017 at the earliest. This comes in the wake of an Airbus pledge that delays wouldn’t be seen with the A350.”We are a victim of our own success. So we have to reorganise to improve production capacity,” said Mr Boissin. THAI has yet to decide on the plane order, which could have a market value of as much as US$9.1 billion; though Airbus tends to offer sizeable discounts on bulk orders to remain competitive with rival supplier Boeing.The A350 was designed to compete with Boeing’s popular 787 Dreamliner, which is running more than two years behind schedule and has already seen orders cancelled. The US manufacturer has already received more than 850 orders for the jet that will largely be made from plastic-composite. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: C.C

Forks Education Association presented proposals Monday during a teacher contract bargaining committee meeting with School Board members The association’s proposals also included reducing the paid contract days from 188 days to 185 days adding 30 contract days of paid maternity leave and increasing the amount of sick days by 10 for all teachers after they have worked more than a year for the districtThe committee wants to maintain its current salary steps and lanes giving raises based on experience But it proposed no additional increases and rejected the reduction in contract days"We believe it’s important to continue the instructional days and professional development days that we have" School Board President Doug Carpenter saidThe committee didn’t respond to the maternity and sick leave proposalsThe association’s pay increase proposal is similar to last year’s which was shot down by School Board members and proposed a salary freeze citing rising expenses and a freeze on the state Legislature’s per-pupil funding formula in 2017The School Board and association declared an impasse in late May 2017 but agreed in July to give salary increases on the basis of years of teaching according to the 2016-17 teacher salary schedule but no additional increases It also allowed for an additional $500 salary increase for teachers at the top of the salary scheduleThat resulted in the district increasing its teacher salary budget by $782000 for the 2017-18 school yearTypically school boards negotiate two-year contracts but a fact-finding commission recommended a one-year agreementSchool Business Manager Ed Gerhardt projected the district will have a $1 million deficit if it does not give out salary increases but the association has argued teachers are leaving the district because they are not being properly compensatedThe district predicts it will pay an additional $850000 to teachers in the 2018-19 school year if it bases raises on experience That would be about a 2 percent increase for the teacher salary budget which was estimated above $41 million for the 2017-18 yearVeteran teachers who are retiring are being replaced with younger teachers which will save the district more money than anticipated said Paul Strande a teacher who sits on the association’s negotiations team "I think you need to start taking those into account" he saidGrand Forks Public Schools should look at ways to convince teachers the community is a place to "plant roots" and stay Association President Tom Young said That includes offering a higher wage and maternity leave"It’s important that we do that because young teachers are leaving the district and they are leaving in faster numbers every year" Young said adding it is getting more expensive to live in Grand ForksOf the 65 teachers who left the school district last year 39 were resignations and 26 teachers retired according to data presented by the association Thirty of those resignations came from teachers who worked with the district five years or fewerThat’s triple the amount of teachers who worked with the district five years or fewer and left in the 2011-12 school year according to the association’s dataGrand Forks teachers also have the second-highest amount of contract days—behind only Fargo—in the region according to the associationSchool board members noted resignation letters sent to the district rarely say why teachers leave other than to say they have found a new opportunityThe negotiating teams agreed they don’t want negotiations to drag on into July It is vital to have the meetings necessary to compare notes and come to common ground board member Amber Flynn said"This is our first meeting where we are coming with proposals" Flynn said "I would hope that all of our goals here around the table is to not go into impasse If that’s the goal and that’s what we’re going to do then let’s talk openly and honestly at the table about how we can get there"The accusation by some groups and individuals that Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima and management of Government Girls Secondary School Chibok know more than meet the eye in the case of the abducted students has added a new twist to the sad occurrence The Christian Association of Nigeria Northern States and FCT chapter in a statement on Wednesday concluded that “We suspect a conspiracy among all of these characters including the Governor Commissioner for Education Principal and CSO since non of the daughters of the teachers and Principal were abducted; there is more to it and this is the position of Northern CAN” The Chibok abduction which has caught the attention of world powers global figures rights organisations and renowned celebrities has witnessed rallies within and outside the country protesting the non-release of the girls three weeks after their capture Indeed the Nigerian government has never been this disturbed as the attention of the world is drawn to #BringOurGirlsBack campaign But as the puzzle as to what happened on the night of April 14 2014 remains unsolved some groups and individuals are pointing fingers at the Borno State government The development which has unsettled senior government officials has caused the state to issue rejoinders to allegations that it knows the whereabouts of the teenage girls Last week an aide the Governor Isa Gusau reacted to a statement credited to the National Women Leader of the PDP Kema Chikwe wherein she expressed doubt if truly the students were kidnapped Gusau said her view “is a clear case of bringing politics into a serious national issue that bothers on the lives of over 200 schoolgirls which is highly unfortunate” “By her remark Chikwe has undermined the integrity of all of Nigeria’s security forces because her questions appear to mean that the security agencies in the country do not know what they are doing for holding a National Security Council meeting and deliberating on something that was doubtful and yet giving directives to address it” But despite the state’s spirited efforts to rebuff all form of indictment some respondents believe the officials were being economical with the truth Last Friday the West African Examinations Council said state government refused to respond to its call before the commencement of the exams to relocate candidates to safe locations Head of WAEC National Office Charles Eguridu at a meeting with First Lady Patience Jonathan and wives of state governors said 530 candidates were registered at the school; 135 males and 396 females He recalled that WAEC had made the request to relocate candidates to safe locations in early March in a letter to the governments of Adamawa Borno and Yobe States ”When we made that representation (letter) to the three affected states none of them responded to the honourable minister’s request “We followed it up and I directed my zonal coordinator in Borno state in particular to liaise with the Ministry of Education in Borno State and the response we got was so disheartening “We were told that they had security in place for the candidates and that we should come and conduct the examination in the schools and that they were not ready to relocate their students from Chibok and other areas to Maiduguri or nearby locations where security agencies could provide security “They said if we failed to conduct the examinations the world would blame us And so at great risk my officers went to Chibok and conducted the examinations “After the unfortunate incident in which the students were said to have been abducted our staff now got a response from the state that they were then ready to relocate the remaining students to another place called Uba On his part founder of Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force Alhaji Asari Dokubo yesterday described news of abduction of Chibok schoolgirls as a scam According to him no girl was kidnapped as claimed by the military and Borno government Although he refused to provide the basis of his conclusion the ex-militant leader called on Nigerians to ask the state government serious questions Commenting on the issues surrounding the incident a security expert Jameel Junaid describing the whole scenario as worrisome and confusing Speaking to DailyPost on Friday he said: “First of all there are many factions claiming to be Boko Haram Some are controlled by politicians But I am aware security agencies are more concerned about what happened before during and after Chibok incident “I gathered from military officers that most of the staff were not within the premises as at the time of incident Only one security staff is said to be around when incident occurred Asked why the state refused to relocate the students he said “Borno officials should answer that question Even WAEC has confirmed that the school was supposed to have been closed at the time of the abduction so they should tell us why they didn’t heed that advice “I am sad just like every other person We have a situation where we’ve heard about 10 different figures of those missing; it is very disturbing There is also seeming conspiracy with locals who were identified by escapees “Away from from that how come all the children that were ‘freed’ or ‘escaped’ were first seen or received by Borno state officials How did the escapees locate Borno Government House which is about 80 kilometers from Sambisa forest “I also learnt that some of the returning girls were hale and hearty; that no bruise on them their clothes were neat When they returned why didn’t they immediately call a press conference and show them to the world “There are questions begging for answers: Is it possible that ransom was paid for some of the kids back home Are we sure we don’t have a situation where some of the parents have been monetarily induced If it is true that students of other schools were mixed with Chibok girls how come no male student was attacked or kidnapped How is it possible that 150 or 200 or 250 or 300 students were moved when the security guard said less than 80 students were in school at the time of the incident” “While I agree that the federal government must ensure safety of the students and get them back soon Borno government owe us satisfactory explanations and that they are yet to do that” Born Government responds In his reply to an e-mail enquiry by DailyPost spokesman of the Governor Isa Gusau reiterated the position of the state saying some people where bent on politicizing the issue According to him some comments on the incident are diversionary bias and inciting “Please let’s not allow some people divide us along religious lines” he said “It has been the number one goal of Boko Haram to set us against each other by way of religious violence so that they hide while we kill each other and after killing ourselves they will kill those who survive suspend our constitutional and liberal democracy and replace it with violent doctrines that are out of this world “It is sad for us as a Government but records have to be put straight In southern Borno where Chibok is located most families have Muslims and Christians in some cases born of same parents “In places like Chibok Hawul Askira/Uba Gwoza and to some extent Biu all in southern Borno you come across numerous families with Muslims and Christians happily living together “There has never been religious crisis in southern Borno just like what obtains in the southwest” Gasau concluded by appealing to the media to help promote peace and security in the country a
