A classmate of mine who isn’t related with any political leanings wrote this as a response to those who share news from the terrorist camps Read and learn something 👇 “You may not be able to stop others from posting useless news like what Shekau had for dinner or the monster he newly appointed as commander of war but you have the power to keep it off your whatsapp status. I have the same power too. If we claim to be better informed then we should know the implication of spreading stuff like that on our platforms. We are doing Boko Haram's job for them. Not because you didn't read the news but you shouldn't be a medium to spread such news that emboldens and glorifies the strength of those guys. If 200m Nigerians have the capacity to spread the news, and on elite groups like ours we make it a point of duty to ignore news of that variety, we would have done our bit. Even the press aren't helping by posting such useless news. They're profiteers off the crisis. Imagine the other day, someone called a journalist reported that Leah Sharibu gave birth for one of the Boko Haram commanders. What do they think that would solve? Have they considered Leah's parents in their quest to be first to report instead of what is right to report? If it is truly their job to report anything and everything, why don't they report the martial infidelity of their publishers or the financial recklessness of their publishers too? They know that it is not every garment one dries in the open but they don't mind the collateral damage as long as it is someone else. During wars in other countries, the press is enlisted to black out news of the enemy's successes in battles and to amplify the successes of their own troops. No war is won by creating hysteria, panic and hopelessness in your own citizens. in the name of reporting. Let the military liaise with the press to direct coverage of the war. Propaganda is an extremely powerful tool in wars and we are at war. Imagine how much help it would've been if the civilian population didn't have to watch the threats and boasts of Shekau regularly since the war started. And I'm talking of the Jonathan years and later. They need that coverage to intimidate and we could have denied them that. But we say that it is the right of the press to cover everything and they've been doing the job of the enemy for them quite effectively” Ibrahim Balogun

Money is any acceptable medium of exchange and a means of getting need met via exchange.. Money has long been in existence but the mode has evolved over the years. It ranges from... Bartering: it was one way that people exchanged goods for other goods before money was created. Like gold and other precious metals, money has worth because for most people it represents something valuable. It then evolved to the use of coins Then, Fiat money: is government-issued currency that is not backed by a physical commodity but by the stability of the issuing government. The Cards (credit cards): the use of ATM was introduced and the cashless system of money usage was encouraged.. Right now we are with Cryptocurrency which is a blockchain network in a decentralized system... It's an evolution.. Do you see a future where a different mode of exchange will emerge?
