In a few days, precisely on June 1, it would be World Milk Day 2018. On this edition of Social Media Voce, we celebrate the decision of the Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations to harp on the importance of Milk.
World Milk Day 2018
Since the first World Milk Day was held in 2001, many countries spread throughout the world have participated in the celebrations and the number is growing each year.
Why hold a World Milk Day? The Day provides an opportunity to focus attention on milk and to publicise activities connected with milk and the milk industry. The fact that many countries choose to do this on the same day lends additional importance to individual national celebrations and shows that milk is a global food.
Why 1st June? This date was chosen because a number of countries were already celebrating a national milk day on or around this time. Late May was originally proposed, but some countries, for example China, felt they already had too many celebrations in that month. While most countries hold their celebrations on 1st June, some choose to hold them a week or so before or after this date.
Happy World Milk Day 2018 celebrations to all.

Nigeria Mourns: Stop the Killings
The hashtag #NigeriaMourns is also trending.
Nigerians are killed on a daily basis locally and internationally.
Pretoria South Africa was recently in the news as a hot-spot for where Nigerians are killed.
Locally, the killing is worse. The North East, the Niger Delta have been in turmoil for over 5 years. Recently, more Northern states like Zamfara, Kaduna, Taraba, Benue etc have reported more attacks by marauding cattle rustlers/bandits.
It is reported that the killings are daily and have reached unprecedented levels.
A group, Enough Is Enough, EIE Nigeria have come out to push for a National Day of Mourning and Remembrance.
Every Nigerian deserves better health, better deal, better dividends of Democracy… The Government must do more.
