Some people measure success by the wealth they’ve accumulated, the power they’ve attained, or the status they’ve achieved. Yet, even though they’ve reached success beyond their wildest dreams, they still have an empty feeling — something is missing from their life. Purpose.

At the time of writing, Britain is due to leave the European Union on Thursday October 31 2019. But is it a trick, or treat?

Boko-Haram-1

Chad President Idriss Deby has fired his armed forces chief of staff following the latest bout of unrest which culminated in a Boko Haram attack that left 23 dead.

Friday’s attack took place at Dangdala, on the northeastern bank of Lake Chad.
