The memory of the inaugural meeting of this incumbent administration on the 29th October,2017 is still very fresh in my mind. As often said that "Every Cloud has a silver lining," the emergence of Dr. Rufai Ahmad as the President of NSP was timely and divinely orchestrated to help reveal certain surreptitious acts behind the scenes of NSP power tussles."

World Leprosy Day is annually observed around the world on the last Sunday of January. The day was initiated in 1954 by French philanthropist and writer, Raoul Follereau, as a way to raise global awareness of this deadly ancient disease and call attention to the fact that it can be prevented, treated and cured. It’s a disease that has horrified society since Biblical times, with civilizations both ancient and current casting out those who became incurably infected. And it remains with us thousands of years later, even having its own day on the calendar: Jan. 29 is World Leprosy Day.
