Say NO to SUICIDE!!!

Suicide may be defined as the act of intentionally causing of one's own death. This terrible act has been on rampage and on the increase in our community recently. According to a September 3, 2016 report by the Nigerian Pilot, recent statistics by the World Health Organization states that no fewer than a million people die annually from suicide which represents a global mortality rate of 16 people per 100,000 or one death every 40 seconds. There is also an estimated 10-20million attempted suicide every year. It was further stated that over 800,000 people die annually and that it is the second cause of death among young people between 15-19yrs in 2012.

*In a bid to sensitize people against this scourge, the Rotaract Club of University of Ilorin has come up with an online initiative to fight and prevent this bad occurrence in our Society.*
According to recent statistics, about 97.21 million Nigerians use internet which makes the internet more effective in information dissemination more than before. *The Rotaract Club of University of Ilorin wishes to use this avenue to make impact on fellow Nigerians and Students across the globe in our fight against depression and other related ailments which might lead to suicide.*

*This awareness will last between 22nd-26th March, 2017. All you need do is to sit back, read the messages as they come, and help rebroadcast them to as many people as possible. All our social media outlets will also be in use during this period (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram).*
We urge you to sit back and expect the best from us.

All Star President,
Rotaract Club of University of Ilorin
