The Dam can be found across the Niger State River in Central Nigeria.
The most powerful device in the Kainji Dam is commonly known as the Turbine, which was constructed with the aid of a strong metal coil, the turbine is supported by a metallic magnetic metal and whenever the metallic magnetic metal spin over the metal coil in the turbine it will produce electricity.

Indeed, the season of good news for young and business minded Nigerians has brought forth another good fruit, as President Muhammadu Buhari continues to create more schemes, aimed at reducing the poverty level in the country. The Government has just announced the launch of the National Social Housing Programme, aimed at empowering innovative Nigerians with a house of their own.
The ESPSocialHousing project is under the Economic Sustainability Plan (ESP) of the Buhari Administration, which was brought up by the Vice-president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo. The housing project comes at a time where there is a severe lack of housing infrastructure to contain the ever-growing Nigerian population. As a result of this, the government has now decided to intervene and bridge the gap between the population and the number of housing infrastructure in place. Recall that in June this year, President Buhari budgeted and appropriated the sum of 2.3 Trillion Naira to fund the Economic Sustainability Plan that was put in place by the Economic Recovery Committee, headed by the vice president.
The Social Housing Scheme is designed to create at least 300,000 soft houses, while also simultaneously creating a whopping 1.8 million jobs too. In order to make this a success, the government has now appointed the Family Home Funds as the agency in charge of this wonderful housing initiative for Nigerians. This agency will now proceed to construct over 300,000 housing units across Nigeria.
In order to show how serious it is in making sure this program works out, the Central Bank of Nigeria has already set aside N200 billion naira for the project, while the sites where these houses would be built have already been identified and marked across the country. Some of the states where the project is set to begin include: Osun, Ogun, Enugu, Abia, Delta, Bauchi, Kebbi, Nasarawa, Plateau, and Abuja. After the first phase, the project would continue in the following states: Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Imo, Cross River, Sokoto, Kaduna, Zamfara, Katsina, Borno, and Yobe.
The houses to be built include 1-, 2-, and 3 Bedroom structures, and would be made available at a very cheap price for Nigerians. The Government would be leasing the 1- bedroom apartment at a very subsidized price of N1.8million to N2million naira. Also, the government would be providing Nigerians with a form of financial assistance, so that they would be able to offset the bill of the mortgage. The financial assistance include low interest mortgage loans, that would be payed over a relatively long period of time.
The Government also announced that a new housing portal would be created on the 16th of December 2020. Through the portal, all interested persons can access more information about the project, which is estimated to create a lot of Jobs simultaneously. On how the Jobs would be created, there would be an increased need for the manufacture of local building equipments and tools, while skilled and unskilled laborers would also be procured on a large scale basis throughout the program. Land developers and contractors would also be engaged on a large scale during the course of the initiative.

User of social media platform Facebook have been to a photo that went viral online. The photo shows two girls who dressed up in a dress made from used condoms.
Let’s forget that the dress was beautifully made, using used condoms in making a dress is very unhealthy and can put one live in danger. In the photo you will see two girls standing, with the one in right holding what looks like a microphone, both girls were seems smiling in the photo.
Condoms are the only material can be used both as a method of birth control and also help in the prevention of sexual transmitted disease like HIV and AIDS, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. Even if you’re already using a different kind of birth control to avoid pregnancy, it’s a good idea to also use condoms or internal condoms every time you have sex to protect yourself from STDs.
The world’s deadliest animal isn’t a shark or even a human.
1) freshwater Snails
Why snails are one of the world’s deadliest creatures
As far as the world’s deadliest creatures go, large predators like sharks and lions tend to get all the credit. But in fact, if we were to point to the animal kingdom’s most frequent killer, it’d actually be the mosquito.
Freshwater snails carry a parasitic disease called schistosomiasis, which infects nearly 250 million people, mostly in Asia, Africa and South America.
It’s one of the world’s most deadly parasites,” says Susanne Sokolow, a disease ecologist at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station.
“You do contract it from just wading, swimming, entering the water in any way, and the parasites basically exit the snails into the water and seek you. And they penetrate right through your skin, migrate through your body, end up in your blood vessels where they can live for many years even decades. It’s not the worms that actually cause disease to people, it’s the eggs.
And those eggs have sharp barbs because they eventually need to make it back out of the human body and back into the water and find that there are snails that they need to complete their reproduction cycle. And so those eggs can lodge in different tissues and cause severe symptoms ranging from anemia and fatigue, all the way to various severe symptoms, even death in about 10 percent of chronic cases.”
What’s the most dangerous creature on earth? Without question the answer is: the mosquito. Mosquitoes and the diseases they spread have been responsible for killing more people than all the wars in history.
Even today, mosquitoes transmitting malaria kill 2 million to 3 million people and infect another 200 million or more every year. Tens of millions more are killed and debilitated by a host of other mosquito-borne diseases, including filariasis, yellow fever, dengue and encephalitis.
But for millions of Americans, malaria is something other people get somewhere else. The fact is that nearly half of the world’s population is at risk for malaria.
Today, however, the threat of developing encephalitis from mosquitoes is far greater than the threat of malaria in the United States. Encephalitis, meningitis and other diseases can develop from the bites of mosquitoes infected with certain viruses. These include the viruses of West Nile, St. Louis encephalitis, LaCrosse (California) encephalitis, and Eastern equine and Western equine encephalitis.
Every year there are about 5.4 million snake bites. This leads to between 1.8 to 2.7 million envenomings. There are between 81 410 and 137 880 deaths. There are even more amputations and other permanent disabilities as a result. People die from snake bites most often in Asia and Africa. These places have lots of venomous snake species.
They also have lots of agricultural workers who come into contact with snakes. And often, the closest hospital might be far away.
Although the toxins in snake venom can hurt humans, they can also be used as medicine. For example, some snake venom affects blood pressure and blood clotting. Scientists can use this snake venom to develop new drugs to treat illnesses.
In fact, the proteins in snake venom has been used to treat many conditions. Some examples are cancer, pain, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. The venom of other animals, such as spiders and scorpions, has also been used to develop important drug treatments.
4) Tsetse Fly
A bite from a tsetse fly can infect you with a terrifying parasite that brings on a deep and possibly fatal sleep.
A bite from a tsetse fly is an extremely unpleasant experience. It is not like a mosquito, which can furrow its thin mouthpart directly into your blood, often without you noticing. In contrast, the tsetse fly’s mouth has tiny serrations on it that saw into your skin on its way to suck out your blood.
To make matters worse, several species of tsetse fly can transmit diseases. One of the most dangerous is a parasite that causes “sleeping sickness”, or “human African trypanosomiasis”to give it its official name. Without treatment, an infection is usually fatal.
Like so many tropical diseases, sleeping sickness has often been neglected by pharmaceutical researchers. However, researchers have long endeavoured to understand how it evades our bodies’ defence mechanisms. Some of their insights could now help us eliminate sleeping sickness altogether.
Dogs are a major reservoir for zoonotic infections. Dogs transmit several viral and bacterial diseases to humans. Zoonotic diseases can be transmitted to human by infected saliva, aerosols, contaminated urine or feces and direct contact with the dog.
Viral infections such as rabies and norovirus and bacterial infections including Pasteurella, Salmonella, Brucella, Yersinia enterocolitica, Campylobacter, Capnocytophaga, Bordetella bronchiseptica, Coxiella burnetii, Leptospira, Staphylococcus intermedius and Methicillin resistance staphylococcus aureus are the most common viral and bacterial zoonotic infections transmitted to humans by dogs.
6) Human beings
Humans have evolved with a propensity to kill one another that is six times higher than the average mammal, according to new research.
Scientists calculated that when we first developed into modern humans about two per cent of deaths were caused by fellow Homo sapiens.
Human beings kill fellow human beings through violence, poison and other things. According to Wikipedia, it is estimated that 475 thousand people are killed by fellow human beings every year.
The world today is filled with many countries which are filled with many people. Most of these people are healthy while some are not.
In this world many people are suffering from different diseases like cancer, hypertension, diabetes and so on. Although that some sickness are transmissible, there are some that we can cause for ourselves.
