Why men fancy women’s braided wigs
A cross section of men residing in New Nyanya and Mararaba Area of Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State have expressed admiration for trending braided or weavon wigs worn by women.

In their interactions with the newsmen on Saturday, the men described the trend as a welcome development, stressing that it had relieved women from unnecessary stress.

According to them, the trend has helped women to be stress free, as well as helping them to spend hours under a stylist all in the name of making hair.

Mr Bitrus Becan, a civil servant, said that he found it so attractive, especially when it was worn by young ladies.

”The stress of spending hours in the name of plaiting hair have reduced; women do not have to sit for hours under the stylist plaiting their hairs.

”I prefer the braided or weavon wigs to that of plaiting hair, because women can easily wear and remove them at ease, especially in this rainy season.

”Due to my love for braided wig, I bought the two my fiancée is using now and I intend to buy more for her,” he said.

Similarly, Mr Ezekiel Njoku, a business man in New Nyanya, said that the trendy braided wig made ladies to look real good and neat, compared to the plaiting braid.

Njoku said the manner with which some of these ladies carried plaited hair for weeks without washing or making other hairstyle, made them to look ridiculous than beautiful.

“Some women find it very difficult to lose their plaited hair even where they know that the hair is long overdue and needs a new touch.

“Instead of them to lose the hair, they will keep it until they start perceiving unpleasant odour that can lead to infection.

“The braided or weavon wigs have made things easier for our women to take proper care of their hair, in the sense that they can remove and decide to wear another.

”Many women have two, three or more of the braided or weavon wigs my wife inclusive, they may decide to wear one today and water another tomorrow, such is a great development,” he said.

Mr Tony Bernard, a banker, said that braided wigs were not too expensive, adding that it was also easy to maintain, especially if one was a working class lady.

“I prefer the artificial braided wigs for my wife because it is stress free and also give her a different look each time she decides to wear it.

“It saves her a lot of time and pains while plaiting her hairs and she will not go to the salon to plait her hair often.

“Braided wig has made it so easy for her, she can wear it anytime and anywhere she feels like,” Bernard said.

Mr Kelvin Joesef, a male hairstylist, said that the fashion trend had become popular among women of different classes, ages among others.

“The different between the braided wig and the plaited hair cannot be over- emphasised, because women are now free from stress with help of the braided or weavon wigs.

“This trend has been embraced by most women to the extent that you rarely find ladies who do not put on braided wig; it is trending among the women folks.

“It has really made some women to look glamorous and more attractive,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Antony Onyibe, dealer of the wigs, Nyanya Main Market, said the selling of the wigs was a lucrative business because of the demand as well as the patronage.

Onyibe added that prices of braided wigs differed because it depended on the quality.

Some vary between N150,000 to N200,000 even more than that. While you could get some from N5,000 to N50,000 even lesser, but it depends on quality.

Flood: NEMA intensifies campaign against improper waste management in Gombe communities

Flood: NEMA intensifies campaign against improper waste management in Gombe communities

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has taken its campaign on proper waste management to rural dwellers in Kwami Local Government Area of Gombe State as part of measures to mitigate impact of flooding during the rainy season.

Mrs Ummunah Ahmad, the Head of Operations, NEMA , Gombe State office, who led the campaign team to Kwami community said the exercise was to raise public awareness about proper waste management and its effect on flooding.
Ahmad said the campaign was imperative as part of effort to mitigate the impacts of flood disaster through proactive measures as well as reminding communities of their roles in disaster prevention and mitigation.

She told residents of Kwami that the devastating impacts of flood over the years, especially that of 2012, should served as a wake-up call to all stakeholders, hence the reason NEMA was collaborating with stakeholders to manage disaster risks and associated hazards.

According to her, the campaign on flooding is an initiative to save lives and livelihoods during the rainy season.

She said that there was a connection between improper waste disposal and flooding, hence the need for communities to avoid dumping waste indiscriminately in drains.

According to her, flooding will be minimised if residents take seriously proper waste management and to comply with all measures that will ensure a sustainable environment.

She said that her team was in Kwami because it is amongst the five LGAs in Gombe State that are predicted to be under the moderate flood risk areas, listing others to include Dukku, Yamaltu/Deba, Gombe and Funakaye.

“Our message is simple, they should not build houses along waterways or flood prone areas, evacuate from flood prone areas immediately to safer ground, clear drainages and waterways, and adhere to early warning alerts.

“NEMA is concerned about saving lives and property and that is why we are engaging all stakeholders to remind them of their roles as well as call for proactive measures,” she said.

Ahmad commended the Gombe State government for commencing desilting of storm drains as well as building waste collection centres in the state, adding that such was key to minimising impact of flooding in the state.

On his part, Mr Muhammad Khalid, the Special Assistant, Technical to the Executive Secretary of Gombe State Environmental Protection Agency (GOSEPA), Mr Auwalu Baba-Jada urged residents to imbibe the culture of proper waste disposal.

Khalid advised residents to always be vigilant and not encourage actions that could lead to flooding in their communities.
Our correspondent also reports that NEMA had earlier in the day, organised a training for key stakeholders tagged “Waste Segregation, Recycling and Composting Techniques, Proper Waste Management and Flood Preparedness to selected communities in Gombe State.”

The event which was held at Prof. Isa Ali-Pantami ICT Park, Gombe Statr University had participants such as community leaders, NESREA, SEMA, State Fire Service and Federal Firemen, officials of Ministry of Health, Environment, the Police, NSCDC and the media.
