Osinbajo To Sign Nigeria’s 2017 Budget On Thursday, June 1st

Featured Image

The Acting President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is expected to sign the 2017 Budget into law on Thursday, June 1, by 9:00am at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

A source told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that the representatives of the President had just concluded a meeting with the leadership of the National Assembly.

The source also said that was where the date and time of the budget was announced.

The National Assembly on Thursday, May 18, passed the N7.44 trillion 2017 Appropriation Bill after over 4 months since it was submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari to a joint session of the National Assembly.

Both chambers of the assembly raised the figure from N7.30 trillion presented by the president to N7.44 trillion.

The National Assembly also transmitted the same to the President on Friday May 19 for assent.

However, the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari has raised a lot of questions as to who would sign the budget.

However, Osinbajo doused the misconception when he told Nigerians that he would sign the document into law as Acting President.

Osinbajo while presenting his Democracy Day speech on May 29 also promised that the budget would be signed soon.

About two days after the speech, there are now clear indication that the budget would be signed into law on Thursday June 1 at 9:00 A.M.

Presidency Slams Fayose For Calling For Buhari’s Resignation

Featured Image

The Nigerian government has slammed Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State over his call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Fayode, in a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday, had called for the resignation of the president on grounds of his ill health.

Fayose Calls For Buhari’s Resignation, Says “He’s Incapacitated”

In his assessment of President Buhari’s two years in office, Fayose said the president has failed Nigerians and demanded his resignation from office.

‎”He can do us the great help by resigning. Not resigning bothers on his integrity. ‎ His absence allows others to suppress and oppress others and that means he is allowing others ‎to suppress their fellow human beings.”

“There are many governments in one and they are clueless. ‎ We need an active president going by our numerous challenges. ‎How long will Nigerians wait for an incapacitated president‎?”

“We cannot wait again for somebody to hold us to ransom. ‎I don’t have any bad blood against Buhari, Osinbajo has no powers without the president. He owes us the duty to tell us the state ‎of his health,” Fayose had said.

However, in a swift reaction, the Presidential Adviser on Political Matters, Babafemi Ojodu, described Mr. Fayose’s comments as “disrespectful”, urging the state executive to invest his energy on governing Ekiti state and not ‘insulting’ the President.

He wondered why Mr. Fayose would call for the president’s resignation at a time all Nigerians are praying for him.

“He (Fayose) has been quarrelling with everybody. Even in Ekiti, he is demolishing filling stations belonging to the opposition,” Mr. Ojudu, a former senator from Ekiti, said.

“He has always been insulting the president and disparaging a man old enough to be his father.

“He is portraying Ekiti in a bad light. We are not like that. Is he the only governor, why is it that he is the only one making so much noise?”

He further said Fayose had failed in governance, plunging his people into hardship and poverty.

“Right now, fuel is not being sold in Ekiti because he is busy demolishing filling stations under one guise of the other,” he continued.

“People are buying fuel from neighbouring states. People are suffering, they are tired of his ways.

“Go and tell him to concentrate on governance and to stop insulting the president.”

Nigerian Schools To Soon Start Teaching Maths, Science Subjects In Indigenous Languages

Featured Image

The Federal Government has said that plans are underway to allow primary and secondary schools in the country to start teaching Mathematics and Science subjects in indigenous languages.

This is contained in a speech delivered today by the Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, at the inauguration of inter-ministerial committee on teaching of mathematics and science subjects in local languages in Abuja.

The inter-ministerial committee involved Federal Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Education.

Onu said the inter-ministerial committee would help to develop the capacity of the local languages to serve as effective tools for teaching mathematics and science subjects.

According to him, the project will help Nigerian students to understand mathematics and science subjects better.

He said the project would also promote the application of science and technology for national development.

The minister expressed concern of the government over the low interest in mathematics and the science subjects by students.

Mr. Onu said various countries like India and China adopted a related strategy by teaching mathematics and the science subjects in their indigenous languages at the primary school level.

He added that those countries were making advancement in science and technology.

“For us to build the country of our dreams, for us to make Nigeria a truly great nation, a nation that is able to feed and house its citizens, a nation with a stable currency, we must embrace science and technology.

“Nigeria will remain dependent nation if the citizens did not embrace science and technology, because no nation can become great without science and technology.

“If Nigeria is to be great then, Nigerians must embrace science and technology.

“The socio-economic challenges we are facing in the country is as a result of inadequate application of science and technology,” he said.

Mr. Onu said that graduates were no longer able to get jobs after their studies because the nation imports everything it needed.

Reps Pass For 2nd Reading Bill Seeking To Review National Minimum Wage Every 5 Years

Featured Image

The House of Representatives on Tuesday passed for second reading a bill which seeks to review the National Minimum Wage every five years.

Nigeria Approves Committee To Negotiate N56,000 National Minimum Wage Demand

Leading the debate on the general principles, the sponsor of the bill, Femi Gbajabiamila (APC, Lagos), said the bill sought to provide for periodic review of the national minimum wage every five years.

Gbajabiamila, who doubles as the house leader, also blamed the continuous clamour for increased minimum wage by workers across the country on inflation.

“The minimum wage shall be subject to periodic review every five years and the first review shall be effective from January 1, 2017 irrespective of the day the bill comes into force,” he said.

Mr. Gbajabiamila described salary as a major component of workers’ welfare, adding that there was the need for a law to compel the federal government to effect a review.

The organised labour has in the past made a compelling case for an enhancement of the pay package of workers, citing spiral­ing inflation occasioned by the current economic recession and arguing that retention of the cur­rent minimum wage of N18,000 per month was insensitive and morally unjustifiable.

The NLC also proposed N56,000 monthly wage for the least paid worker, convinced that a new salary structure based on that minimum wage would shore up disposable incomes and lift workers out of the crushing pov­erty in which most of them have lived over the years.

Featured Image

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday signed new laws that would compel banks to accept movable assets at collateral with which to issue loans to Micro Small and Medium Enterprises as well as other Nigerians.

This was contained in a statement signed by signed by Mr Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, Office of the Vice President.

The bills which have been signed in Acts by the acting president are part of the bills passed by the National Assembly to ease doing business in Nigeria.

The bills which have now become ‘Acts’ are the Secured Transactions in Movable Assets Act, 2017 (otherwise known as Collateral Registry Act) and the Credit Reporting Act, 2017.

The Collateral Registry Act’ ensures that Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Nigeria can register their movable assets such as motor vehicles, equipment and accounts receivable in the National Collateral Registry, and use same as collateral for accessing loans.

This in turn will increase their chances at accessing financing and tackle one of the major obstacles faced by MSMEs.

On the other hand, ‘The Credit Reporting Act’ provides for credit information sharing between Credit Bureaus and lenders (such as banks), as well as other institutions that provide services on credit such as telecommunication companies and retailers.

Featured Image

In contradiction to the rumours making the round, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has said that it has not yet released the cut-off marks for placements into tertiary institutions for 2017 academic year.

This was contained in a statement by the Head, Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, on Tuesday, May 30.

According to him, the policy committee meeting responsible for the determination of cut-off marks had not met.

CCTV: “We Can Still Cancel Results Of Cheats Who Did Well In UTME” – JAMB Tells Candidates

So, it is in the best interest of candidates and other critical stakeholders to jettison cut-off marks for the various courses that are currently being paraded.

He said: ”We want to appeal to all candidates to jettison such speculations and engage themselves in more meaningful ventures that would add value to their future.’’

The Board spokesperson further said results of the just concluded 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) had since been released, with a few others still being previewed.

”We want to appeal to Nigerians to understand that such candidates whose results are being previewed may not necessarily have participated in any malpractice.”

“But rather, centres where they sat for the examination had issues during the conduct of examination.

”These issues were reflected on the CCTV footage and this suggests why they must be carefully investigated before releasing such results,” he added.

According to him, a very disturbing and unfortunate case is that of a school in Abia where cables were seen to have been connected secretly to a distant hall for hired mercenaries to write for candidates.

“This is very unfortunate given the fact that the school is a missionary school and supposed to be a leading light against such vices.

“But, rather, it was conniving, supporting and indeed championing the evil course of examination malpractice,’’ Benjamin said in the statement.

He said such results would be treated in accordance with the provision of the law.

JAMB Releases UTME Results For 742,906 Candidates

According to him, a task force has been inaugurated by the Registrar of the board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, to look into all such issues and has since concluded the review of the CCTV footages and other evidences presented.

4,188 Persons Infected As Cholera Outbreak Kills 75 In Sudan

Featured Image

No less than 75 persons have been killed, with 4,188 infections recorded in Sudan as cases of cholera increased in the White Nile State, the state’s governor said Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

“The number of infection cases with cholera, since the disease’s appearance on April 8 this year, has reached 4,188 cases, including 75 death cases,” Abdul-Hameed Musa Kasha, Governor of White Nile State, said when addressing the state’s legislative council yesterday.

NAN reports that the Health Ministry of the Sudanese capital Khartoum acknowledged the outbreak of an epidermic disease in Khartoum, but refuted that the disease is cholera.

“All the cases admitted to the state’s hospitals were watery diarrhea cases. There were 120 cases, where 49 of them have been treated and they are in good conditions. The conditions of the remaining patients are stable. We have registered two death cases during last month,” said the ministry in a statement Tuesday.

“We would like to reiterate that epidemic cholera does not exist among these cases, and the ministry has allotted four hospitals to receive the cases with qualified medical staff,” it noted.

“We would like to reassure the citizens that these watery diarrhea cases do not represent cholera and the situation is now under control,” added the statement.

The watery diarrhea cases started in Sudan’s White Nile State in April and then spread to neighboring states including Khartoum.

While social media activists published photos and information on cases of cholera in some hospitals in the Sudanese capital Khartoum, the Sudanese Health authorities remained mute on the development.

Khartoum State’s Minister of Health Mamoun Humaida, in a telephone conversation with Xinhua, declined to give any information about the disease.

Civil society organisations in Khartoum criticised the silence of the official authorities and their reluctance to comment on the disease.

Sudan Tribune on Tuesday also reported the opposition Sudan Change Now Movement as saying that “Sudan is witnessing a state of epidemiological spread of cholera in White Nile, Khartoum and North Kordofan States in addition to occasional cases in eastern Sudan.”
