    2023: Vote credible, pensioner-friendly candidates, NUP advises members

    The Nigeria Union of Pensioners(NUP) has advised its members to vote credible candidates who will prioritise the welfare of pensioners in the country in the forthcoming general elections.

    Mazi Godwin Abumisi, the National President of NUP,gave the advice at the opening of its National Executive Council meeting on Thursday in Jos. Abumisi, who commended President Muhammadu Buhari for being pensioner- friendly, said members must vote someone that would continue in that regard.

    ”Our President has proven to be a pensioner-friendly president and as he prepares to leave office in 2023, we are duty-bound to elect a successor who will ensure our interests,as pensioners, are adequately catered for and protected.

    ”This is why we invited to this occasion, all the leading presidential candidates to come and and address this gathering as regards their plans for pensioners’ welfare and the nation in general.

    ”So, it is very important and instructive that Nigerian pensioners will choose leaders that will treat us as human beings and not spare tyres or parasites”, he said.

    Abumisi explained that the choice of ”Pensioners Fate in the Unfolding Political Events in Nigeria ” as theme of the meeting, was deliberate, to capture the yearnings of pensioners and Nigerians in general.

    Declaring the meeting open, Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau, represented by Mr Sunday Hyat, Head of Civil Service (HoS) of the state, thanked NUP for the choice of the state for its 2022 NEC meeting.

    ”The decision to host this event in Plateau is a demonstration of your confidence in the efforts of this goverment toward restoring lasting peace to the state”,he said.

    Lalong explained that his administration had prioritised regular pension payments to beneficiaries, adding that the payments were up-to-date.

    ”We inherited over eight months pension arrears when we came on board in 2015, but today we have cleared everything.

    ”We have placed high premium on the welfare of our senior citizens; payment of pension is a frontline charge and we will not renege on that,” Lalong added.

    In a brief goodwill message, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, the Presidential Candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) promised to prioritise the the welfare of pensioners if elected in 2023. Kwankwaso, who was represented by Pastor Alfred Dabwan, the governorship candidate of the party in Plateau, also promised to address all challenges being faced by pensioners in the state.

    Tehran, IAEA working on good, robust agreement  

    Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Wednesday that Tehran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were working toward the achievement of a “good and robust” agreement.

    Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a phone call with the EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell.

    Amir-Abdollahian referred to the efforts that were aimed at addressing differences between Iran and the IAEA.

    In a report, IAEA accused Iran of its failure to provide technically credible explanations for nuclear activities at three undeclared sites, a claim that Tehran had repeatedly rejected.

    Noting the talks on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal, Amir-Abdollahian reiterated that Iran was ready to achieve a good, strong and lasting agreement.

    Iran had presented its viewpoints with a positive approach through the EU to the American side, he added.

    Earlier, Amir-Abdollahian said that an Iranian delegation would travel to Vienna in the coming days for talks on enhancing cooperation with the IAEA, the official news agency IRNA reported.

    Iran signed the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), with world major countries in July 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear program in return for removing sanctions on the country.

    However, former U.

    S. President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement and reimposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.

    The talks on the JCPOA’s revival began in April 2021 in Vienna.

    No breakthrough was achieved after the latest round of talks in early August.

    European lawmakers call for tougher China policy during Taiwan Visit

    European lawmakers of the Interparliamentary Alliance on China (IPAC) called for a tougher approach toward China on Thursday during their third day of a visit to Taiwan.

    “A realistic China policy must be willing to be tough.

    “And I think we will get there,’’ Reinhard Bütikofer of the German Greens told a news conference.

    ” The comment came just one day before German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz’s visit to Beijing.

    The delegation of European lawmakers, led by Bütikofer, exchanged views with Taiwanese counterparts on Wednesday and were received by President Tsai Ing-wen on Thursday.

    Tsai described the first-ever IPAC visit to Taiwan as “extraordinarily meaningful.

    ’’ IPAC is an international cross-party group of lawmakers from 29 countries that aimed to deepen collaboration on issues involving China.

    “IPAC has helped coordinate democratic countries to respond to the growing challenges of authoritarian China,’’ Foreign Minister Joseph Wu said.

    Taiwan is a self-governing democracy and had long seen itself as an independent.

    Beijing rejects official contact between countries and Taiwan as it regarded the democratic island republic as part of China.

    Tensions had intensified in recent months.

    The conflict over Taiwan would also play a role in Scholz’s talks in Beijing.

    Bütikofer said Scholz’s visit to China was controversial because “a lot of people are afraid that the chancellor will not do and say what should be done and said in Beijing.

    Investment: AfDB praises forum for mobilising funds for Africa

     The President of the African Development Bank President (AfDB),  Dr  Akinwumi Adesina, said that the Africa Investment Forum mobilised 110 billion dollars in investments for Africa between 2018 and 2022. Adesina disclosed this on Wednesday at the opening ceremony of the three-day “Africa Investment Forum Market Days 2022“ holding in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

    He said the forum meant to showcase the African continent and to mobilise investments for it.

    “Four years ago, we began a journey together — the African Development Bank, the Africa Import-Export Bank, the Trade and Development Bank, the Africa Finance Corporation, the Development Bank of South Africa, the European Investment Bank, the Islamic Development Bank and Africa 50 — when we established the Africa Investment Forum.

    “The Africa Investment Forum is delivering amazing investments for Africa.

    “In four years since the Forum commenced operations in 2018, it has helped to mobilise 110 billion dollars in investment interests to Africa,”  Adesina said.

    The AfDB president implored investors to develop the confidence to invest in Africa.

    According to him, Moody Analytics of defaults in infrastructure investments over the past 14 years showed that globally, Africa had the lowest default rate in infrastructure projects.

    “Moody Analytics of defaults on infrastructure investments over 14 years showed that Africa has the lowest default rate on infrastructure projects in the world (5.5 per cent), compared to Latin America (12.9 per cent), Asia (8.8 per cent), Eastern Europe (8.6 per cent), North America (7.6 per cent), and Western Europe (5.9 per cent).

    “Africa is not as risky as you think and perception is not the same as reality.

    “The Africa Investment Forum will make investments to land in Africa.

    You have all it takes to succeed with your investments,”  said the AfDB boss.

    Adesina also said the investors were at the forum to seek opportunities for investment, to identify and invest in bankable projects on the continent.

    The AfDB president said that “Africa Beyond Aid“ was an Africa driven by investments.

    He spoke on the African Continental Free Trade Area which, he said, was the largest free trade zone in the world, connecting economies worth 3.3 trillion dollars.

    “ Africa cannot be ignored and if you are not investing in Africa, think again.

    “Africa is the investment frontier in the world, today and in the future.

    Invest in Africa today, benefit from its great future.

    “At the Africa Investment Forum, we do deals, deals, and deals and they are transformational deals,” he noted.

    Meanwhile, Adesina disclosed that participants who took part in the Virtual Africa Investment Forum held in March secured 15.6 billion dollars in investment for the construction of the Lagos-Abidjan Highway.

    “The highway, which carries 75 per cent of trade in the West African region, will help unleash greater growth, trade and investment across the region.

    ” Adesina said the forum had outlined several investment ready projects for investors.

    “These range from renewable energy hydropower, gas infrastructure, railways, road, and water transport.

    They include agriculture, health, mining, fertiliser manufacturing, port infrastructure and urban green transport.

    “They include sports, urban housing, and private equity feeder funds,” he said.

    According to the AfDB president, Africa will account for over one quarter of the world’s population by 2050 and will have the largest sources of renewable energy in the world.

    “Africa has 65 per cent of the uncultivated arable land left to feed the world,” he said.

    The AfDB president also said the forum would support women businesses.

    African Presidents who attended the event were Alassane Ouattara of Côte d’Ivoire, Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, Sahle-Work Zewde of Ethiopia, Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe and Patrice Talon of Benin.

    Also in attendance were Jewel Howard Talyor, Vice President of Liberia and Philip Mpango, Vice President of Tanzania.

    Furthermore, José Ulisses Correia e Silva, Prime Minister of Cabo Verde, and Patrick Achi, Prime Minister of Côte d’Ivoire were present at the ceremony.

    Meanwhile, ministers representing Heads of State and Government included Niale Kaba, Minister of Planning and Development of the Côte d’Ivoire and the Governor of the AfDB Group.

    President of the ECOWAS Commission, Jean-Claude Kassi Brou, ambassadors and heads of diplomatic missions were also in attendance.
