World Health Organisation (WHO) has disclosed that about 140 million births take place every year and most of these occur without complications for women and their babies. This was made known by Nothemba Simelela, WHO’s Assistant Director-General for Family, Women, Children and Adolescents, while issuing new guidelines on global care standards throughout labour period and immediately after childbirth. The official said the new guidelines is aimed at reducing the use of needless and potentially harmful routine clinical and medical interventions. She said: “We want women to give birth in a safe environment with skilled birth attendants in well-equipped facilities. “However, the increasing medicalisation of normal childbirth processes are undermining a woman’s own capability to give birth and negatively impacting her birth experience”. However, according to World health body, over the past 20 years, health practitioners have increased the use of interventions that were previously

only used to avoid risks or treat complications, such as oxytocin infusion to speed up labour or caesarean sections. Studies show that a substantial proportion of healthy pregnant women undergo at least one clinical intervention during labour and birth. “If labour is progressing normally, and the woman and her baby are in good condition, they do not need to receive additional interventions to accelerate labour,” Simelela added. From the 56 evidence-based recommendations, the new guidelines include having a companion of choice during labour and childbirth. It also include ensuring respectful care and good communication between women and health providers and maintaining privacy and confidentiality. It further allowed women to make decisions about their pain management, labour and birth positions and natural urge to push, among others. It recognised that every labour and childbirth is unique and that the duration of the active first stage of labour varies from one woman to another. The UN agency also noted that with more women giving birth in health facilities with skilled health professionals and timely referrals, they deserved better quality of care. Estimates show that about 830 women die from pregnancy- or childbirth-related complications around the world every day – the majority of which can be prevented with high-quality care. “Achieving the best possible physical, emotional, and psychological outcomes for the woman and her baby requires a model of care in which health systems empower all women to access care that focuses on the mother and child,” he stated.

Governor Rochas Okorocha has denied any impeachment plot against his deputy Prince Eze Madumere even he insisted the stature of the former South Africain Président Jacob erected in Owerri,the state capital despite opposition from citizens. Saturday Daily Times reports that the first lady Mrs. Nkechi Okorocha and her son-inlaw and Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu were fingered out in the impeachment plot. Also mentioned in the impeachment plot include Chief Obinna Mbata, Commissioner for Finance and Hon Luggard Osuji, representing Owerri Municipal Constituency in the State House of Assembly. t A statement by thé Chief Press Secretary to the state governor Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo stated that impeachment plot was echoed à day Chief Mbata and Hon Osuji had led the APC Officials and leaders in Owerri Municipal Council to endorse Chief Uche Nwosu for the 2019 governorship in the State. Okorocha querried that of what political value would the impeachment of the Deputy Governor would add to anybody or organisation in the State at the moment “The truth of the matter is that those who cooked up the impeachment story with the hope that it would help them in their ambition are also the ones marketing it. Hon Osuji is not even one of the Principal Officers of the House as I write and Hon Mbata is not a member of the Assembly. How then would they impeach the deputy governor? According to him, “The point is that anybody who thinks that he

can win the governorship election in the state in 2019 without the contribution of Governor Rochas Okorocha should go and do what Rochas did in 2011 by taking the ticket of APGA and winning the election and in 2015 when he joined APC in a zone that was dominated by PDP and also won his election. That is the best action now.” “There are a lot of Political Parties looking for people to come and take their tickets. Any of the aspirants who thinks or feels he has the political capacity to win election in Imo without Rochas’ contribution should go for the ticket of one of such parties and win election and let us see.” He pointed out that “But for APC Imo state Rochas Okorocha cannot and will not be allowed to leave it for anybody because when he was risking his second tenure and life to build the party most of these people were either not there or were sitting on the fence.” On the Jacob Zuma’s Statue, Okorocha saïd that thé statute erected in Owerri would not be pulled down saying that thé statue was erected when the man was a sitting president.” We should also be keen in his life story. For instance, a man who didn’t receive any formal education but rose to play a major role in the freedom of his people and also became president of one of the leading African nations calls for sober reflection.” He also noted that he resigned honourably.’ And after his coming to Imo where he spoke against the killings of Nigerians in South Africa, the situation came under control to a large extent. Zuma came to Imo to partner Rochas Foundation College for Africa. He didn’t come for politics. And even after his departure as President, he would still go ahead to make his contributions to the education of the less privileged children in Africa..
