We want the best for our sisters, Twitter users reveal why they can’t allow their friends date their sisters



Men can be very flippant and may look very careless, but when it comes to issues that directly affect their siblings, especially their sisters, they can be very protective and can go any length to shield their sisters from getting hurt.

Notwithstanding the usual feud among siblings, men don’t joke with their sisters. Even when they are still engaged in internal war, it doesn’t take away their brotherly love.

Men become so protective to the level they go all out to work against any form of relationship between their best friends and their sisters even when it is expected that their friend should ordinarily be a perfect suitor for their sister.

Well, some men have taken to social media to share why they can never be in support of a relationship between their friend and their sister.

One of the major reasons some men cited for not supporting the idea of their best friend dating their sister is that they know their friends and they want the best for their sister.

Many also expressed fear that the relationship will not last long as it will eventually go south.

Pharmacists’ council shuts drug market in Imo



The Pharmacists Council of Nigeria (PCN) has shut a drug market along Douglas Road, Owerri, the Imo state capital for violating the regulations guiding the handling of pharmaceutical products and sale of medicines.

The council also sealed off nineteen pharmacies and 434 Patent and Proprietary Medicines Vendors (PPMV) otherwise known as patent medicine shops in the state.

Addressing a press conference in Owerri Friday, the director of inspection and monitoring of the council, Pharm. Anthonia Aruya, disclosed that nine arrests were made during the enforcement exercise of the council which started in the state since June 29, 2020.

She said,

“A major observed non-compliance is the fact that despite the federal government’s explicit policy direction and the PCN’s guidance to stakeholders on relocation of markets into regulated centres (Coordinated Wholesale Centres), a new drug market was discovered recently set up in this state. The PCN has sealed that market preparatory for evacuation”.

According to her, the council had visited 557 premises that comprised 68 pharmacies as well as 489 patent medicine shops.

Aruya disclosed that apart from those that were sealed off, ten pharmacies and one patent medicine shop were issued with compliance directives for poor handling of controlled drugs as well as the sale and dispensing of ethical drugs without the supervision of the pharmacists.

She advised the public to look out for the Pharmacists annual license to practice and the premises certificates which should be conspicuously displayed and the license of the patent medicine shops to avoid patronising quacks.

She insisted that medicines sold in unregistered outlets cannot be guaranteed to have efficacy, quality and safety as those sold in regulated facilities.

According to her,

“Medicines are to be sold in highly regulated environment. A situation where people wake up in the morning and start selling medicines without recourse to regulations guilding the practice is highly unacceptable to the federal government, particularly when we understand that drugs are poisons and must be used strictly as directed to avoid deleterious effects.”

World’s ‘first’ gold-plated hotel in Vietnam (photos)



The world’s first self-proclaimed gold-plated hotel is now open for business in Vietnam, and despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the luxurious structure is now open for business.

The hotel which sits by Giang Vo Lake in the centre of the Vietnamese capital has 400 rooms and will operate under the American Wyndham Hotels brand.

While expensive for Vietnam, at $250 a night it is not prohibitive for wealthy locals craving a few nights living like Donald Trump, the US President renowned for his love of all things that glitter.

The hotel wants “ordinary people to the super-rich… to check-in” both physically and on social media, said Nguyen Huu Duong, chairman of Hoa Binh group that owns the hotel. Nguyen Huu Duong, chairman of Hoa Binh group that owns the hotel said;

“We want the ordinary people to the super rich… to check-in. Our group has a factory that can do gold-plated stuff, so the cost for our equipment and furniture here is quite cheap.”

Phillip Park, a South Korean guest said;

“When I arrived here… I felt like a king, you know, the Pharaoh… the king of Egypt.”

The relatively modest construction price tag was achieved by sourcing the gold plating locally — significantly reducing costs.

EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides said in a statement;

“Today’s authorisation of a first medicine to treat COVID-19 is an important step forward in the fight against this virus.

“We are granting this authorisation less than a month after the application was submitted, showing clearly the EU’s determination to respond quickly whenever new treatments become available.”

Remdesivir which is the only anti-coronavirus medication to be given the green light in the EU was originally intended as a treatment for Ebola.
