Nigeria rejects West Africa-EU free trade agreement



Africa's most populous country, Nigeria, is declining to join one in the first place.
Nigerian President Buhari is yet to sign the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), which aims to establish a free trade area between 16 West African countries (and Mauritania) and the European Union.

In a statement delivered in the Nigerian capital Abuja Thursday, the Nigerian president said he didn't sign to protect national industries and the country's youth population.
    "Our industries cannot compete with the more efficient and highly technologically driven industries in Europe."
    "We are not enthusiastic about signing the EPA because of our largely youthful population," he said.

    Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

    Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
    Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex.
