Women Leaders Launch Transformational Initiative To Support Nigeria Youths

Following the momentous #EndSARS movement, which took place a year ago, the Alliance of Business and Professional Women (ABPW) has announced the launch of a transformational initiative aimed at supporting Nigerian youths to create a propitious country.

The project, tagged “Youth Connect Initiative,” which is in response to the need for Nigerian youths to be recognized as valuable contributors to economic and social development, particularly those classified as ‘disadvantaged,’ would equip youths from underprivileged communities with skills to provide gainful employment.

ICE-CREAM does GROW on Trees!

Blue Java Banana is unique in taste and look, a native of southeast Asia and flavoured with an ice cream-like consistency of vanilla; it gets its nickname as the ‘Ice Cream banana’ in Hawaii. Because of its unique vanilla custard flavour, it’s known in Fiji as the ‘Hawaiian banana’, nicknamed as ‘Krie’ in the Philippines and ‘Cenizo’ in Central America. They are silvery-blue in colour when unripe and turns pale yellow when ripe, with creamy white flesh. They are not as popular as Cavendish bananas which we usually eat. They are a hybrid of two species of Southeast Asia Banana— Musa balbisiana and Musa acuminata.
