    Group rallies support for Tinubu presidency

    The Convener of an APC  political group, Omaluegwuoku Progressive Initiative, Mrs Ginika Tor, has called on Igbos living in Lagos to rally support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential flag bearer.

    Tor made the appeal on the sidelines of a Town Hall meeting held by the group in Lagos The meeting titled “Igbo Kwenu 4 Asiwaju” proffered reasons why Igbos should lend their support for the victory of APC in the 2023 presidential election.

    Tor, a Commissioner in the Federal Character Commission, representing Enugu State, said that before the emergence of Tinubu as APC presidential aspirant, she had pledged her support for an APC Igbo candidate.

    She said that the emergence of Tinubu should now become a rallying point for members of the party, and the Igbos in Lagos, because of Tinubu’s unbroken developmental strides.

    According to her, Tinubu has been tested and trusted, a detribalised Nigerian as shown in the appointments in Lagos cabinet since his debut into politics.

    She said that the APC government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari has impacted Nigerians positively, especially in the areas of humanitarian affairs, adding that Tinubu be allowed to continue in the good works.

    The commissioner said that Tinubu had also gone ahead to choose another visionary leader, Mr Ibrahim Shettima, as running mate.

    She added that the issue of religion was inconsequential as long as the right team is elected to lead the country to prosperity.

    She explained that her choice of Mr Jude Idimogu, member representing Oshodi Isolo Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, as the anchor person for the group was providential.

    She said that Idimogu has a track record of accountability, trustworthiness, sincerity, credibility and reliability.

    Also speaking, Idomogu said that Tinuba had a track record of winning, a destiny helper and a detribalised Nigerian.

    He said that a vote for Tinubu will be a vote for national unity, economic emancipation, growth in the nation’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) and an investment destination for investors.

    “As far as I am concerned, majority of Igbos in Lagos will rally support for Tinubu.

    “I can assure you that Igbos don’t hate APC,” Idimogu said.

    He urged Igbos to rally support for Tinubu because he loved Igbos and was ready to protect their investments in Lagos and create enabling environment for their businesses to thrive.

    He urged Igbos to play national politics and contribute their quota to the victory of Tinubu.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the rally witnessed large number of Igbo APC supporters who promised to garner support for Tinubu at the grassroots.

    Governorship candidate pledges to utilise hydro electric dams

    The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Niger, Hajiya Khadijah Abdullahi-Iya, has promised to utilise the four hydro-electric dams in the state to ensure uninterrupted power supply if voted into power in the 2023 general elections. Abdullahi-Iya announced this during an interview with newsmen on Monday in Minna. He said that the measure would boost economic activities which would increase the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of the state. She said that if elected as the state governor in the 2023 general elections, her administration would work out modalities whereby the four hydro-electric dams of Kainji Shiroro, Jebba and Zungeru in the state would provide 24 hour uninterrupted electricity to boost economic activities. “We are hosting these dams so we can negotiate and tap into them to enjoy uninterrupted power supply to boost economic activities in Niger state,” she said. The APGA governorship candidate said that when there “is constant power supply, socio-economic activities would thrive and more revenue would accrue to government”. Abdullahi-Iya said that if voted into power, her administration would improve education in the state whereby it would be compulsory for every child in the family to get quality education to tackle poverty. “There is the need to empower the children in every family with good education in order to tackle poverty,” she said. She noted that there was the need to also introduce motherhood into governance, where women would be empowered economically and socially to support their husbands. “You can imagine where every family is empowered with the family value system, it will go a long way in stemming the current security challengs in the state,” she said. She appealed to the people of the state to vote her into power to better their lot. She, however, urged Nigerians to embrace modern democracy, especially politicians, for a better country.

    CSOs decry Anambra new tax policy involving wheelbarrow pushers

    The Coordinator of Open Alliance for Civil Society, Mr Chris Azor, has decried Anambra new planned tax policy that requires wheelbarrow pushers and related bodies to be included in tax payment.

    Azor, who doubles as Citizens Co-Chair, Open Government Partnership (OGP) disclosed the group’s displeasure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Awka on Monday.

    He said that Open Alliance for Civil Society and Non-State Actors, Anambra State, a foremost Coalition of Stakeholders for transparency and accountability, had written to the appropriate authorities of State Actors requesting for detailed clarifications on the decision.

    He said that the purported taxing of the core poor and most vulnerable groups, especially wheelbarrow pushers and the likes were seen and described as unfriendly policy to the downtrodden.

    He said that they should rather be supported by the government to improve their living conditions, stating that there was no reason enough to convince the citizens as the parameter for taxing them, instead of protecting the poor in their midst.

    Azor said that the group had written to Mrs Patricia Igwebuike, the state Commissioner for Transportation, and Mr Richard Madiebo, the Chairman, Anambra Inland Revenue Service, (AIRS) seeking detailed clarifications on the propriety of the exercise.

    He said that Wheelbarrow pushers and other vulnerable groups should be exempted from these bio-metric capturing and taxation as their action suggested that the government was taxing the core poor wheelbarrow pushers, and people who patronized their services as the cost would be raised.

    According to him, we have been overwhelmed with calls and complaints from Stakeholders demanding to know the reason for what they described as insensitivity of the State Government and its handlers.

    “Countries all over the globe are giving tax exemptions, with palliatives and Social Protection to the core poor affected by COVID-19 and sundry emergencies and general economic downturn.

    “The State government can come up with other innovative strategies to raise revenue, rather than stifling the poor and vulnerable.

    “We however, simply request that the State government come up with more friendly ideas to raise its IGR than stifling the poor more,.

    “We need convincing explanations within the next one week to cushion the effect of the idea on the citizens,” Azor said.

    NAN reports that the group reacted to the government announcement that  was contained in a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Anambra State Ministry of Transport, Mrs. Louisa Ezeanya.

    Ezeanya, in the statement, explained that the bio-metric enrollment and registration was conducted by the ministry in collaboration with the Anambra State Internal Revenue Service (AiRS).

    In a swift reaction, Mrs Sylvia Tochukwu-Ngige, the Head of Taxpayer Education and Enlightenment Team AiRS told NAN that AiRS was very determined to increase the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) base of Anambra digitally to an enviable level of the state.

    She said that when the goal was achieved, it would help the government meet the obligations of the citizenry which included good roads, potable water, good healthcare delivery, security, more citizens oriented projects would be in place.

    Tochukwu-Ngige said that the ongoing state government bio-metric enumeration and registration of all stakeholders and operators on transportation in the state, when completed, would help control security challenges and increase IGR of the state.

    She said that Anambra’s future was bright with the Gov. Charles Soludo’s  vision and appealed to the people of the state to support the state government by paying due taxes to the government.

    Also, Mr Christian Aburime, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, described the idea as a transformational tool to streamline the state revenue collection as well as to control the security challenges of the state as the enrollment would aid security checks.(

    Threat: We are forging ahead with strike- ASUU LAUTECH replies Govt

    The Ladoke Akintola University Chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Wednesday said it would forge ahead with its strike and warned its members not to break off.

     

    The union in a statement jointly signed by the Chairman and Secretary, Professors Biodun Olaniran and Toyin Abegunrin after their Congress, reacted to an alleged threat by Gov. Seyi Makinde to stop payment of subvention until lecturers returned to classroom.

     

    It stated that any branch that broke the strike would lose out from the benefits of the struggle, including infrastructure development.

     

    ASUU said members had resolved to forge ahead with the strike and pursue it to a logical conclusion, which “is imminent”.

     

    The union said government should not see students as a target of the strike but as beneficiaries of ASUU strike as the intervention of most state governments in terms of subvention had been used as part-payment of salaries.

     

    According to the statement, the Union is shocked to hear from the Commissioner of Education, Mr Rahman Abdu-Raheem, that the state had been paying LAUTECH 100 per cent subvention when the University administration revealed to the Union that only 55 per cent subvention came from the government.

     

    It said the balance of 45 per  cent had been sought by the university through Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

     

    The ASUU leaders stated that the commissioner’s claim on subvention had created further distrust between the management and the unions as to who was telling the truth.

     

    According to LAUTECH ASUU, the responsibilities of capital projects had been totally abdicated and surrendered to TETFUND and NEEDS assess projects of ASUU’s struggles.

     

    They further noted that lecturers were very sensitive to the plight of the students but that the government should thank the union for the struggle which had helped in training its members in human capacity Development through TETFUND grants.

    Boosting IGR: Ugwuanyi, Nwodo, others for book launch on hospitality, tourism management

    Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and former Gov. Okwesilieze Nwodo of Enugu State, have been penciled down to launch a 395-page book on hospitality and tourism management, meant to boost country’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

    Others expected in the launch included: Chief Emeka Odo, Chairman, Enugu State Board of Internal Revenue; Prof. Austin Nweze, Rector, Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu, and Dr Peter Mbah, PDP Governorship Candidate for Enugu State.

    Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria in Enugu on Sunday, the author of the book, Chief Steve Odo, said that when principles of the book are applied it would lead to IGR increase for individuals, businesses and governments.

    Odo said that the book, which is titled: “The Principles and Practice of Hospitality and Tourism Management”, would lead to effective hospitality and tourism management to harness the abundant potentials in the two sub-sectors.

    “It has been my life-long ambition to write the book and open up the endless opportunity and potentials for wealth creation and up-scaling IGR for both individuals, groups, businesses and governments in the country.

    “Tourism and hospitality is a rare sector that authors hardly write about due to little knowledge or even few reference materials and lack of data.

    “Nigeria, especially Enugu, is booming in hospitality and tourism even as there are great potentials to increase the gains from hospitality and tourism if well harnessed,” Odo, who is also the General Manager of Enugu State Tourism Board, said.

    The tourism board boss said that the book would serve as a legacy he would be leaving behind for stakeholders, students, practitioners and administrators of the two correlated sub-sectors.

    He said that the challenges he encountered in writing the book included few reference materials and lack of data on tourism and hospitality.

    Odo said that the book, whose launch would hold on Thursday, June 9, at Enugu Sports Club, GRA, Enugu, had chapters that deal with effective management of hotels, restaurants and other tourism entities, including rules, regulations and procedures.

    “The book also contains how to apply management functions of Planning, Organising, Staff Leading, Controlling and Co-coordinating in the management of hotels and other related entities.

    “It contains how to prepare 100 different types of African and Continental dishes as well as how to plan and manage events of all kinds.

    “The book also highlights the role of hospitality and tourism in Nigeria’s National Security and the need for collaboration with governments at all levels.

    “The appendix provides lists of some good hotels in the 36 states of Nigeria and Abuja as well as most registered hotels and tourist sites within Enugu State, among others,” he added.

    According to him, Chief Nick Omeye, Federal Commissioner, Public Complaints Commission; the state Commissioner for Justice, Chief Milletus Eze, and the book reviewer, Dr Ferdinand Anikwe, former Director-General of the Centre for Black African Arts and Civilisation, among others, will grace the occasion.

    Anniversary: My Govt’s policies in Oyo yielded desire results- Makinde

    Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, says the economic policies of his government in the last three years has yielded positive results and impacted on the citizens.

    Makinde made the declaration on Tuesday in Ibadan, while presenting the scorecard of his administration in the last three years.

    The governor spoke in a state broadcast, commemorating the third years of his administration in office.

    Makinde commended the residents of the state for their supports, patience, understanding and for trusting his government to deliver on its promises.

    The governor said that his administration would continue to consolidate on the gains already recorded in the education sector, road infrastructure, agribusiness, among others.

    “The gains already recorded by my administration in the last three years include: construction of several roads that have impacted positively on the economy of the state through the creation of a thriving environment for private sector players in the state’s agribusiness sector.

    “The increased private sector participation in the agribusiness sector has enabled the state to attract N23 billion in agribusiness investments, as well as securing another 125 million dollars in development partners-blended finance for rural roads, agro logistics, market and industrial hubs.

    “All these have contributed to providing direct and indirect jobs to residents of the state.

    “In addition, the state has also trained close to 4,050 youths in agribusiness, 98 of whom have started their businesses, while the state is set to support others in diverse agribusiness enterprises,” the governor said.

    According to him, as we review the past year, we are thankful that our administration’s economic policies in the past three years are yielding the desired results.

    “We have always said we believe in data, science and logic.

    “The data we have has shown that our resources as a nation have dropped, especially with dwindling oil prices and there was a need to focus on raising our Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

    “Back then, Oyo State was generating less than N1.7 billion a month.

    “Our plan based on this data, was to focus on projects that would yield the revenue needed to reduce our infrastructure deficit,” he explained.

    Makinde also said that his government would now move on to fix inner and feeder roads to make inner-city travels to be stress-free for residents, “having been executing road projects that improved access and connectivity between the zones in the state”.

    According to him, some of these projects include: the 65 kilometres Moniya-Ijaiye-Iseyin Road; the 76.7 kilometres Ogbomoso-Fapote-Iseyin Road; the 34.85 kilometres Oyo-Iseyin Road and the proposed reconstruction of the 48 kilometres Ido-Eruwa Road.

    In the education and health sectors, Makinde said that his administration had constructed 56 model schools in three years.

    He said that the administration had also completed the renovation of 200 Primary Healthcare Centres in its drive to ensure the existence of at least one functional PHC in each of the 351 electoral wards of the state.

    In area of security, Makinde said his government had been able to bring crime rates down by equipping security agencies, adding that the state government handed over 100 operational vehicles to the state security outfit, Amotekun, recently.

    He said the government also embarked on the recruitment of 500 additional personnel for the corps, and was working hard to ensure security in the state.

    The governor promised that his administration would keep on executing policies that would reduce the burden on its people.

    He disclosed that his government had secured 125 million dollars in development partners-blended finance for rural roads, agro logistics, market and industrial hubs.

    Makinde promised to consolidate on the gains of the last three years in the remaining one year left for his first tenure.

Oladiji of the Department of Biochemistry, University of Ilorin was on May 12 ratified as the eighth substantive vice chancellor by the  university’s Governing Council. Speaking at the inauguration, Dr Godknows Igali, the Pro-Chancellor of the institution, said that Oladiji was a studious reseacher that had a convicing academic prowess meant for the position. Igali said that Oladiji’s emergence was democratic and transparent. He added that Oladiji emerged among the three best applicants for the position before she was considered for the coveted position. According to him, her appointment is very well deserved, as the selection committee was dazzled with her outstanding stance. He asked the new vice chancellor to maintain the existing peace in the university and treat all as one family, irrespective of individual differences. The pro-chancellor urged the vice chancellor to prioritize the welfare of staff and students and also improve on income generation for the citadel of knowledge.

The COVID-19 experience showed there is a lot of ground yet uncovered. “Addressing most of the big issues facing humanity captured succinctly in the sustainable development goals requires that we network across country borders and academic disciplines. “No single institution, country or discipline can exclusively provide solutions. “We will network and be the hub for the much-desired change in the higher education sector. “I will focus on improved Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), staff and student’s welfare, capacity building, research, infrastructural development, positive impacts on host communities, amongst others,” she stated.

    Encomiums as NAN celebrates Ojetimi, retired DEIC

    Members of staff and friends poured encomiums on a retired Deputy-Editor-in-Chief of the News Agency of Nigeria , Mr Wale Ojetimi, on Friday, at a send-off party organised in his honour.

    Many described Ojetimi as hardworking, generous, patient, tolerant and trustworthy, at the event which took place at the Lagos office of the agency.

    NAN Head of Lagos Operations, Mr Ephraims Sheyin, narrated his good working relationship and moments with Ojetimi as district correspondents in different zones.

    Sheyin said that when he was transferred to take over headship of NAN Lagos office, several colleagues referred him to Ojetimi.

    “He is somebody that is very pleasant to work with,” he said.

    The head of Lagos office said that Ojetimi helped several people selflessly without expecting anything in return.

    He commended him for being good, which he said reflected in the turnout at the send-off and the remarks by people.

    Sheyin said that he would continue to tap from his wealth of experience even in his retirement, while wishing him all the best in the new phase.

    The Chairman, Lagos Council of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Mr  Adeleye  Ajayi, said Ojetimi was generous and talented.

    Ajayi, also a Deputy-Editor-in-Chief in NAN, urged Ojetimi to transfer his wealth of experience as a seasoned journalist by mentoring young journalists.

    “Wale is highly talented,” Ajayi said, praying that his hard work in NAN would open doors for him in retirement.

    Some other Deputy and Assistant Editors-in-Chief also praised Ojetimi for his selflessness and willingness to always offer assistance.

    Correspondents and reporters who spoke at the send-off party praised Ojetimi for always being there to work on their stories, even at odd hours.

    Mr Deji Fadipe, Chairman, Radio, Television, Theatre and Arts Workers Union (RATTAWU), NAN chapter, also commended Ojetimi for his good works and forthrightness while in the agency.

    He urged the management to prioritise paying retired staff reparation allowance.

    “The management should make it a priority that once a staff is retiring, the allowance should have been prepared immediately, maximum, a week after retirement.

    “This will ensure it serves its purpose as this allowance helps the retiree for the period after he leaves service and before he gets his pension which is always delayed, “Fadipe said.

    Responding, Ojetimi, who thanked members of staff for their love and support, called for innovative ways to boost the agency’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

    He advised staff of the editorial department of the agency to rise up to the challenge of taking the agency to greater heights.

    He said that NAN could do better with more funds.

    “We have to find innovative ways to generate income; this is a big challenge to everyone, “ he said.

    Ojetimi commended journalists for their tenacity in spite of the challenges facing them in the society.

    He urged reporters to continue to learn, move with current trends in the industry, be relevant, and be ahead of the agency’s subscribers.

    “Make sure speed and accuracy remains our watchword; go for objective and timely information, “ he said.

    NAN reports that Ojetimi was Deputy Editor-in-Chief and Head of Metro Desk in the Lagos office  until his retirement in April when he clocked 60.

    During his service, spanning over 32 years, he served as Bureau Chief of NAN office in Johannesburg, covering Southern Africa for several years.
