    Agency to address environmental issues via centre for leadership

    Dr Rufus Ebegba, Director General (DG) of the National Biosafety Agency Management (NBMA), on Tuesday assured Nigerians that the centre would address the lingering environmental issues in the country.

    He said this at the unveiling of the Rufus Ebegba Centre (REC) for Leadership and Environmental Sustainability and book launch in Abuja.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the book is titled “Developmental Drive and Strategies, Solution Approach”.

    The DG said that without an ideal environment, man could not survive, hence “environment is where we all live”.

    He said that his vision is to see how a world where leadership would always be there for the people could be created.

    He said in spite of the threats in the country, citizens had a duty towards leadership.

    The Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, commended the efforts of the DG for the unveiling of the centre and the book launch.

    The Senate President, who is represented by his Chief of Staff, Dr Otive Igbuzor, urged everyone to take part in the development of the country so as not to leave it for the government alone.

    The Emir of Nasarawa, Malam Ibrahim Jibril, urged everyone to take environmental issues serious as they were front burners that had consequences on humans.

    The emir who is also a former Minister of Environment, said the environmental issues were occasioned by climate change and had consequences on the socio economic activities of Nigerians.

    Jibril commended the DG for establishing the centre where researches could be carried out on environmental issues and sustainability.

    The DG of the National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA) Prof. Abdullahi Mustapha, said that writing book and establishing a centre was a legacy left for everyone to benefit.

    He commended Ebegba for conceiving a centre that would transform the lives of people in the country.

    “Touching lives of people is something that not everyone of us has the ability to do,” DG NABDA said.

    The Minister of Environment, Dr. Mohammed Abdullahi, said the centre would offer a lot in the area of biosafety, biotechnology, biosecurity and bio regulations on genetic applications in the country.

    The minister, who is represented by his Special Assistant on Environment, Mr Abdulkadir Abdullahi assured of his support for the centre.

    The book reviewer Prof. Peter Anyaegbu, said that the book was a veritable tool to the politicians of conscience, civil servants and students of various courses.

    He said that it classically discussed the state of Nigeria today and proffered solutions to it in order to achieve a viable and stable economy in Nigeria.

    The book has 15 chapters and 188 pages.

    Nigeria’s biosafety agency, others to collaborate in eliminating biorisk

    The National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA) on Monday says it will collaborate with other stakeholders to eliminate harmful biological agents known as biorisk, in the environment.

    The Director General (DG) of NBMA, Dr Rufus Ebegba, said this during a two-day capacity building workshop organised for officers of the agency in Abuja.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the workshop is in collaboration with Health Security Partners and Biosecurity Engagement Programme.

    Ebegba said that biorisk are organisms which cannot be seen through the human eyes and are harmful.

    The DG further said that the workshop was to educate research institutions on organisms which could be infectious and dangerous to human health.

    “NBMA would work with all stakeholders that have related mandates to ensure biosecurity in the country.

    “The process is just starting, we will be convocating a national conference very soon on how to implement national biosecurity policy,” Ebegba assured.

    The Minster of State for Health, Mr Joseph Ekumankama, commended NBMA for the workshop to strengthen the capacity of officers of the agency.

    Ekumankama who was represented by a director in the ministry, Dr Oyinye Nwankwor said that the NBMA policy was aimed at institutionalising a coordinated and functional biosecurity system in the country.

    He said that the policy would minimise the risk of bio-threats to human health, biodiversity and the environment.

    The minister assured that his ministry and relevant parastatals under the ministry would be actively involved in the implementation of the policy which its overall aim would attain a bio – secured nation.

    Dr Kinsley Odiabara, Director, Medical Laboratory Services in the ministry said that the concept of biosafety and biosecurity needed to be well understood to avoid confusion.

    “Biosafety tells you what to do so that you can avoid exposure to pathogens anywhere you find yourself, not to infect yourself and others.

    “Biosecurity is much more dangerous and complicated, it tells you that if you do not manage your biological agents and materials that contain biological agents, you may run into trouble,” Odiabara said.

    Dr Prasid Kuduvalli, Director of Scientific Programmes, Health Security Partners promised to strengthen its partnership with NBMA to support the course of biosafety in Nigeria.

    Kuduvalli said the partners had worked with over 30 countries as Health Security Partners to prevent and protect against biological threats.

    The National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun (FUPRE) in Delta State to kick-start biosafety courses.

    The Director General (DG) of NBMA, Dr Rufus Ebegba, said that the MOU would give opportunities to those who wanted to acquire knowledge in the area of biosafety.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the MOU was signed in Abuja on Thursday.

    “The MOU is to give opportunities to those who want to increase their proficiency, skills and knowledge in biosafety,” Ebegba said.

    He said that the MOU was signed to build a strong knowledged based capacity building centre for biosecurity and biosafety system in Nigeria which might likely be a first in its kind.

    “The Nigerian system has been able to put in place strong biosafety system which is attested to by being the head of the African Union Regulator Biosafety Forum in Africa.

    “We must be at the top of biosafety in Africa.

    As Nigeria, I can tell you that we have put in place a strong system that must be sustained through capacity strengthening and building,” Ebegba said.

    He urged those offering Genetic Engineering, universities, research I institutes and researchers that would be dealing with matters related to GMOs to liase with the University.

    Prof. Akpofure Rim-Rukeh, the Vice- Chancellor of FUPRE, expressed satisfaction over the signing of the MOU saying that it was a big boost to the university.

    Rim-Rukeh said that by the time the University fully implemented the MOU, Nigerians would come to the university for knowledge and to make them better equipped in biosafety and biosecurity.

    He said that the signing of the MOU was in line with his vision to build young Nigerians and graduates that are technocrats.

    “We have to train graduates in the oil and gas related industry such that as they leave the university they can be ready for the market,” the Vice Chancellor said.

    “NBMA would put in good measure to ensure safety, it would also collaborate to protect the country from harmful biological agents.

    “As the world is going on, we don’t doubt that the issues of terrorism might emerge, so Nigeria as a country need to be well prepared.

    “So, we see ourselves as safety and economic enablers, we must stand for that and work for that,” he said.

    Ebegba also stressed the need to ensure food security and safety in the country.

    The DG said that the training would strengthen the capacity of the agency on what it has been doing all through the years.

    The representative of Febi International Consult Ltd. Mr Franklyn Obadia, said the mandate of NBMA is more critical now than in the past.

    Obadia said that the urgency to ensure biosafety and biosecurity was essential due to the prevailing threat to the climate.

    He assured that the biosafety of human lives, animals and plants would be protected.

    Obadia urged all stakeholders at the training to come up with additional strategic measures that would move the country to a strong level of biosafety and biosecurity.

    The Director, Planning and Research, NBMA, Mrs Scholastica Bello said that issues of biosafety and biosecurity was global and very serious, and they must be treated with urgency.

    ”We should not allow the issues of bio to degenerate to the level of insecurity such that one will be scared of eating anything.

    ”The issues of biosecurity should be handled properly hence it has to do with nature,” Bello said.

    She commended the Federal Government for the structures put in place to ensure that biosafety and biosecurity sectors were well protected.
