No fewer than 44 migrants from Nigeria and Ghana have died in the Sahara Desert after their truck broke down in arid northern Niger. 
The Red Cross said the migrants, most of whom have not been identified, died this week and according to Reuters, six survivors walked to a remote village where they said that 44 people, mostly from Ghana and Nigeria and including three babies and two other children, died of thirst, said Lawal Taher, the department head for the Red Cross in the Bilma region.
Taher said a search for the bodies was underway. The number of migrants who cross the Sahara has increased in recent years as impoverished West Africans risk their lives to try to reach Europe.

Height of deperation. If the nation's economy has been what it is not people will not be this desperate.

people in Europe and America, work very hard and use their brains, although our leaders are irresponsible, but it would be better if we start making Nigeria the place we like, even without the government, although it takes time, but it takes the spirit of understanding and cooperation. By assisting the children and students to understand they can add value and by supporting them we stand a chance to rise rapidly in history.

we need to dispense more practical and transformative education, this will raise the richness of the products from institutions, also we are no more slaves, we are not tied to the basic material needs, and so we should make it so, also we need to look at our populations and always seek to meet it growth, in our economy, if we recalibrate our economy to meets the population, the population would always, outstrip the improvement set into place. So now the immediate need is massive and wider education, no child should be on the street, nobody should sit down in the street busy chatting and wasting time, or nobody should be in the office chatting and wasting time or drama.
