Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickies to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

    Sources said between N400,000 and N450,000 were sent to each of the 3,009 units in the state by a particular party.

    Security agents, according to the source, looked the

    000 each to vote.

    According to the unconfirmed results, Akeredolu cleared the results in Owo and some
    units in Akure, the state capital, while Jegede cleared the poll in Akure,
    Ondo and in some units in Akoko.

    town, with a large margin as expected even though he won his polling unit
    with a wide margin.

  2. Nigeria has been ranked 152nd among the 188 UN member states in the Human Development Index.

    This is according to the 2016 report released by the United
    Nations Development Programme in Abuja on Tuesday.

    In the report launched by the Minister of State, Budget and
    National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, Central Africa Republic ranked 188.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that HDI is a composite statistics of life expectancy, education, and per capita income indicators, which are used to rank
    countries into four tiers of human development.

    Nigeria in the report retained its 2015 status as there was no forward
    or backward shift from the computation of 0.527 which was two
    points above 2014 computation of 0.525.
    Nigeria’s HDI value for 2016 positioning it at 152 of 188 countries put
    the country on Low Human Development.
    The country is followed closely by Cameroon in number 153rd and
    Zimbabwe in 154th position.
    The report places Nigeria below neighbouring Ghana and Zambia positioned at 139th, Gabon, 109th ,
    and Equatorial Guinea, 135th.
    The report, however, showed a positive outlook for the country.

    It revealed that Nigeria’s HDI increased from
    0.466 to 0.527, a 13.1 per cent increase in the last 10 years under review between 2005
    and 2015.
    The feat recorded a three-point increase over what it had
    between 2005 and 2014, when Nigeria HDI’s value increased
    from 0.467 to 0.514, an increase of 10.1 per cent.

    Kenya was placed at 145th position on the list of countries ranked low, with Central Africa Republic taking the last position at 188th
    in sub-Saharan Africa.
    HDI indicates the number of people with access to
    education and other basic amenities. Human development is
    about enlarging freedoms so that all human beings
    can pursue choices that they value.
    NAN reports that the global report was officially launched on March 25, 2017 in Stocklom, while the Nigeria version was
    launched on Tuesday.
    According to the report, Norway tops the table as the number one country in the HDI and is closely followed by
    Switzerland and Australia which came joint second, Germany on the fourth position and Denmark number five.
