Total assets of 4 banks hit N19.86trn in 2018

Continued from page 1

this report include Zenith Bank Plc, FBN Holdings Plc, Access Bank and Guaranty Trust Bank Plc. It is, however, important to note that these financial institutions are four out of six Domestic- Systematic Important Banks (D-SIBs) of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). In the considered lenders, we note that Zenith Bank Plc recorded the highest total assets, followed by FBN Holdings Plc, then Access Bank and GTBank. For Zenith Bank, the bank reported N5.96 trillion in total assets in 2018 against from N5.59 trillion declared in 2017, while FBN Holdings reported a 6.3 per cent increase in total assets to N5.6 trillion from N5.2 trillion in 2017, which was driven by 33.3per cent increase in investment securities to N1.7 trillion as against N1.2 trillion reported in 2017. Access Bank and GTBank Plc for the 2018 financial year reported N8.3 trillion, as Access Bank total assets rose by 21 per cent to N4.95 trillion over N4.1 trillion in 2017 and GTBank, on the other hand, recorded N3.35 trillion. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in its fourth quarter economic report of 2018 noted

that total assets and liabilities of commercial banks stood at N37.2 trillion as at November 31, 2018, representing 0.4 per cent decrease below the level at end-September 2018. According to CBN report, funds were sourced, largely, from foreign liabilities, draw down on reserves and acquisition of credit from Central Bank. The funds were used, mainly, for payment of matured demand deposits, and settlement of claims on Central Bank and Federal Government. “Total specified liquid assets of the banks was N12.16 trillion as at the end of November 31, 2018, representing 56.8 per cent of the total current liabilities,” the report explained. Commenting on its audited financial statement for 2018, the Group Managing Director, FBN Holdings, UK Eke, said: “Over the course of the 2017 – 2019 strategic cycle, the priority for management has been to strengthen the various businesses across the Group and position for sustainable growth over the long term. Our three-pronged approach has primarily been to drive long-term revenue generation capabilities, overhaul risk management processes and drive efficiency across our businesses.” He stated that Holdings have “seen significant results in our revenue diversification

aspiration, with improving digital banking offerings which have enhanced our non-interest income from the commercial banking group”. Similarly, there has been steady growth in contribution to the revenue pool of the Group from the insurance business and the merchant banking business, helping to further reinforce the revenue generation capacity of the Group. He added that “the revamp of our risk management architecture, which is one of the key enablers to our shareholder value creation aspiration, will ensure our revenue-generating capacity translates to stronger growth in profitability now that we have materially progressed in resolving the legacy issues as evidenced by the full provision for the largest NPL in our loan book. “Finally, we have also focused on driving operational efficiencies across the Group by leveraging technology, improving processes and increasing synergies across various entities. “In 2019, we expect growth in interest income to complement our growing non-interest revenue as we undertake the guided expansion of the loan book which contracted in the last two financial years”, he said.

Presidential tribunal: PDP protests nonrelease of electoral materials by INEC Urges Yakubu not to plunge Nigeria into crisis

Tunde Opalana, Abuja The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has vehemently protested the non-release of electoral materials for inspection by the party to further galvanise its position at the presidential election petition tribunal. The party cautioned the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, not to plunge the nation into a monumental crisis, by refusing to obey the Court of Appeal to release the election materials used for the conduct of the February 23 Presidential election. In a statement on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said INEC, by this action, is blatantly standing in the way of justice and working against the will of the PDP and the Nigerian people in their quest to salvage the nation and reclaim their stolen mandate at the tribunal. The party stressed that the continued refusal of INEC to release the electoral materials to the PDP and its legal team is completely provocative and

shows that the commission is working in cahoots with the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Buhari Presidency to frustrate the PDP, its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and majority of Nigerians from retrieving Atiku’s mandate at the tribunal. “INEC and the APC are apprehensive that the materials, particularly the forms EC8D and EC40G covering the nation in addition to the report of the Smart Card Readers used in the Presidential election will show at the tribunal that the PDP and Atiku Abubakar clearly won the Presidential election. “The PDP has been reliably informed of how the APC and some compromised top officials of INEC have been boasting that they will never allow these materials and documents to be released to the PDP legal team. “This is the reason the APC and INEC manufactured a groundless claim that the form EC8D, EC40G and the reports of the card readers were not specifically captured in the order of the court whereas the court was unequivocal in its order that all materials used for the election be made available to our legal team.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Court of Appeal, among other orders, directed INEC to release and allow our legal team to “inspect, scan, forensically audit and make copies of forms EC4OA, EC8A, EC8AVP, EC8B, EC8C, EC8E and ALL OTHER ELECTORAL FORMS and materials including, but not limited to ballot papers and voters registers and materials used for the conduct of the presidential election, held across Nigeria on the 23rd of February, 2019, for the purpose of instituting and maintaining an election petition. “The refusal of INEC to release forms EC8D, EC40G and the reports of the card readers is therefore a deliberate and vicious disobedience to the orders of the court for which the management of INEC should be charged for contempt”, said the party. The PDP called on Nigerians to note that INEC, having rigged the election in favour of APC, is now seeking ways to frustrate our petition at the tribunal. It therefore, charged extra INEC, having been exposed, to end its shenanigan and release these documents without further delay.

Nigeria has 1.8m IDPs, UNHCR cries out Isaac Job, Uyo

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has said Nigeria is currently home to 1.8 million internally displaced persons (IDPs). UNHCR Regional Representative for West Africa, Ms Liz Ahua, disclosed this on Monday in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, during the 2019 ECOWAS Ambassadors retreat jointly organised by ECOWAS and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), with the theme “Mixed Flows and Durable Solutions in the ECOWAS Region”. She said the growing number of displaced persons in West Africa is becoming more challenging as terrorism grows, and many communities are becoming indoctrinated, as the problem of displaced persons can only be tackled jointly. She noted that climate change is becoming a threat to the livelihood of millions of people across the region, resulting in situations that threaten the progress of ECOWAS and UNHCR. “Never since the inception of ECOWAS and UNHCR long standing relationship have we been confronted by challenges so immense and diverse as

the growing crises, that are in every respect unlike anything we have seen. “Even as the specter of terrorism looms, entire communities are being indoctrinated right before our eyes from the shores of Lake Chad to the Mediterranean sea and southward to the beaches of the Atlantic ocean. “Others have been caught between the cross fire and the number of displaced people today presents a new challenge; one that will only be overcome by joint action. Nigeria hosts 1.8 million internally displaced people and Burkina Faso is threatening to become the new theatre of displacement. “Climate change is threatening the livelihoods and lives of millions across the region like never before. It is a sobering moment indeed but one for which these frameworks were created,” she said. Also speaking, the Permanent Representative of Nigeria to the Economic Committee of West African States (ECOWAS), Ambassador Babatunde Nurudeen, said political instability is responsible for the migrations of Nigerians and member States of West Africa to Europe and other developed countries of the world. He said the migration has impacted negatively on the

economic development in ECOWAS states as useful human capital resources are being exported out of the subregion. He stated that a larger part of people moving out of the subregion and Nigeria inclusive are young energetic persons that would have served as viable human resources had they stayed back in their countries of origin. Ambassador Nurudeen, who also doubled as the Chair of the Permanent Representatives’ Committee at the event, said the situation has resulted in more negative consequences than positive ones for Africa and responsible for a mixed flow of complex movement of population made up of refugees, asylum seekers, economic migrants, victims of trafficking and stranded migrants among others. He mentioned that the retreat will address the problems political instability in West African countries have caused at both the national, regional and even global levels. “Of the diverse factors that drive mixed flows conventionally, the major one that has aided the flow of migrants in and out of member States of the West African subregion is political instability. “Without any iota of doubt, the political architecture in our

Ms Liz Ahua

sub-region has been responsible for several agitations against marginalization coupled with the tight syndrome of some of our political leaders which eventually lead to incessant outbreaks of restiveness, insurgency, terrorism, intrastate violence in the forms of ethno-religious, political, criminal as well as struggle for scarce resources. “The flow of migrants resulting from these sociopolitical upheavals has led to massive displacement of people, many of whom have had to migrate out of the affected states to save their lives and property. This has also impacted greatly on the

CCT decides Onnoghen’s fate April 18

FG asks tribunal to convict him Charges against me are unknown in law- Onnoghen

Andrew Orolua, Abuja The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), on Monday, fixed Thursday, April 18 to give judgment in the six-count charge of false asset declaration brought against the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, by the Federal Government. Chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Yakubu Umar, who announced the date of judgment, also disclosed that ruling will be delivered on the same date in the two motions earlier filed by Onnoghen in which he challenged the jurisdiction of the tribunal and also praying that the tribunal chairman should recuse himself from the trial on account of bias. Adopting their final addresses on Monday, Onnoghen’s counsel, Okon Nkanu (SAN), adduced reasons while the charges against Onnoghen should be dismissed. Nkanu stated that the sixcount charges against his client should be dismissed on the grounds that the prosecution

failed to prove the essential ingredients of false assets declaration contained in the charges beyond reasonable doubt. He further argued that the false declaration of asset charge filed against Onnoghen was unknown to law because it was not clearly defined by the Constitution. Nkanu added that for the prosecution to succeed, the elements of each count in the six-count charge must be well established, stressing that in the absence of proof of those ingredients, the tribunal under by law should rule in favour of the defendant. The counsel particularly faulted the claim of the prosecution that Onnoghen made partial asset declaration, adding that the claim establishes the fact that Onnoghen declared his asset and that if it was done, it raises doubts that must be resolved in favour of the defendant. Nkanu further told the tribunal that from Onnoghen’s asset declaration form which

is in evidence as exhibit, it was clear that Onnoghen’s assets were not verified by the CCB as required by law and, therefore, the charges against his client were based on hearsay. The defence counsel, therefore, prayed the tribunal to dismiss the entire charges, discharge and acquit Onnoghen from the purported offences. The prosecution counsel, Aliyu Umar (SAN), while adopting his written address, informed the tribunal that all the essential ingredients of the charges have been proved beyond all reasonable doubts. He urged the tribunal to discountenance defence lawyer submissions and argument as misconceived. He insisted that the defendant did not declare his asset between 2005 to 2015 and added that when he did so on December 14, 2016, five bank accounts with Standard Chartered Bank opened between 2009 and 2011 were not declared. He, therefore, urged the tribunal to hold that the prosecution has proved its case

beyond reasonable doubt. The Federal Government had on January 11, filed a six-count charge bordering on false and non- declaration of asset against Onnoghen at the tribunal which culminated in his suspension from office by President Muhammadu Buhari. Though Justice Onnoghen had resigned his appointment as justice of the Supreme Court, his resignation letter is still receiving the attention of the President.

achievement of economic development in the ECOWAS sub-region as viable human resources that are supposed to develop the sub-region move out in large numbers on a regular basis. “The most worrisome in this situation is that a larger part of this movement is made up of youths who arguably are expected to be the most viable human resource of West Africa,” he stated. In his opening remark, the Akwa Ibom State governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, said Nigerian youths were leaving the country for greener pastures because of the lack of employment, adding that the talk about the porosity of borders is based on the fact that no county wants to welcome economic liabilities. He stated that his government is investing in the state and the lives of the youths to make the environment conducive for them to strive. Emmanuel, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Emmanuel Ekuwem at the occasion said “in Akwa Ibom State, the governor is keen on the need to get young people off the streets. “The age bracket of young people who move from home is about 18 years to about early 40s. These age bracket of people are creative, intelligent, hardworking, energetic, dynamic and impatient. So we as a state, we as a nation, Nigeria, have to do our best to harness those talents, capacities and energies in those young ones, otherwise, we are going nowhere. “In Akwa Ibom State, the interest of the governor is to take these people off the street and get them gainfully employed, give them a sense of purpose and direction. Once the passion is right, the governor always says everything is achievable,” he explained.

N7bn fraud: Businessman with NLC to FG: Borrow with caution 8 ponzi schemes in EFCC net How over 20, 000 investors seeking high returns became victims

Seek anti-graft agency’s help to retrieve investments Andrew Orolua, Abuja The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested an Abuja based entrepreneur/businessman, Babagana Abba Dalori, whose alleged ponzi schemes have made over 20,000 investors to lose more than N7 billion. Dalori, a 35- year-old and a 2010 graduate of Electrical Electronics, University of Maiduguri, and the Managing Director, Galaxy Transportation and Construction Services Limited and seven other companies was apprehended by the operatives of EFCC on Sunday in Abuja acting on volumes of petitions by his victims. The middle aged man, EFCC alleged has registered and operates Galazy Global Energy Limited, Galazy Miners Concepts Limited, Galazy Global Farms, Galazy Guest Palace Limited, Galazy Hospital, Galazy Computing, Galazy

Block making and Galazy Car Wash under which the alleged ponzi scheme are thriving. According to the agency, “investigation revealed that Dalori allegedly made his money from his unsuspecting investors as he lures them with mouthwatering Returns on Investment (RoI).” He also promised his investors as high as 135% and in some cases 200 % on whatever they bring into the company as their investment. According to the suspect, who is facing interrogation at Wuse office of the antigraft agency, he started his business in 2012 with just a tricycle (Keke NAPEP) and by 2014, hundreds of people showed interest in the investment scheme and he felt of the need to diversify. He also claimed during interrogation by the EFCC operatives that he diversified into Sand mining, Haulage business (Tipper), Transportation-

commercial buses, while hundreds of investors were still falling on themselves to part with their hard earned money as the stake on Return on Investment had been raised from 135 percent to 200 percent. In 2016, Dalori veered into full transportation business as he registered Galazy Transport and Construction Company with his mother as co- director. In 2017, he claimed that he invested about N400 million to acquire a quarry licence and started mining at Mpape, Abuja. He added that he had offices in 11 states and continued to lure his investors with mouthwatering returns. He continued collecting money from investors until his investors rose to 20, 700. But instead of concentrating on the line of business for which the investors had put their money, he further diversified as he registered and delved into Galazy Global Energy Limited, Galazy Miners Concepts

Limited, Galazy Global Farms, Galazy Guest Palace Limited, Galazy Hospital, Galazy Computing, Galazy Block making and Galazy Car Wash. Investigation further revealed that in all the above companies registered and running which spread in three cities of Abuja, Maiduguri and Yobe, the investors were never carried along, neither were they coowners in the companies. Several victims of Dalori who were interviewed, explained that they invested between N2 million to N20 million into Galazy Company but were never carried along in the multi million investment he claimed to have diversified into. Prior to his arrest by the EFCC, most of the investors have been agitated as the suspect became incommunicado as he was said to have switched off his phones while Galaxy offices were deserted by his officials.

Nigeria produced 2.019m barrels of Crude Oil daily in 2018 – NNPC Joseph Inokotong, Abuja The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says that the national average daily crude oil production stood at about 2.019 million barrels in 2018. The NNPC Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, disclosed this at the 12th International Conference of the Nigerian Association for Energy Economics (NAEE), in Abuja, on Monday. Baru reeled out some of the achievements of the corporation under his watch while presenting a keynote address as the quest speaker. He said that the volume of crude produced translated to an increase of 9 per cent above the 2017 average of 1.86 million barrels. According to him, it is a significant improvement from the unimpressive production level recorded on assumption of office in July, 2016. “To underline this, the Nigeria Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) in 2018 posted a production growth of 52 per cent compared to 2017 (i.e from an average of 108kbod in 2017 to 165kbod in 2018),” he said.

On nationwide fuel supply, he said that the corporation established a petroleum products task force that helped it achieve steady supply of products across the country. He said that a total of 1.2 billion litres was sold in 2018 as against 1.1 billion litres in 2017, representing seven per cent increase. “This was achieved through addition of 40 new affiliate and leased stations bringing the network to 618 stations nationwide. “NNPC Retail has also moved from loss making to profitability,” he added. On Joint Venture (JV) cash, Baru said that the corporation negotiated settlement of the Pre-2016 JV Cash Call Arrears and also championed indigenous cash exit/JV selffunding mechanism. “So far, we have repaid over 1.5 billion dollars out of the 5.1 billion dollars cash call arrears to date, a development that has not only restored the confidence of International Oil Company JV partners, but has also led to improved reserves growth and crude oil production. “It was quite fulfilling that in 2018, that’s for the second year in a row, we concluded the fiscal year without any

cash call arrears, he said. The GMD further noted that NNPC made remarkable inroads in frontier exploration within some inland basins of the country. He said topmost on this said was the Kolmani River-II Well which was inaugurated in February by President Muhammadu Buhari. “So far, our operations, there are progressing satisfactorily, with drilling so far at over 10,000 feet with tremendous prospects,” he said. There was also the Chad Basin which was halted by the security situation in the area. The Basin received new vigor with the successful SpudIn of Kolmani River Well II at an elaborate ceremony by President Muhammadu Buhari. On Gas Supply to Power in 2018, he said that the national average daily gas production stood at 7.90bscf. This, he said, represented an increase of three per cent above 2017 average daily gas production of 7.67bscf. “Of the 7.90bscfd produced in 2018, an average of 3.32bscfd (42%) was supplied to the Export market, 2.5bscfd (32%) for Re-injection/Fuel Gas, 1.3bscfd (16%) was supplied to the domestic market and about 783mmscfd

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has urged the Federal Government to be cautious on the issue of borrowing both within and outside the country. NLC General Secretary, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson, said this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja. “We now owe a debt stock in excess of N24 trillion which is quite excessive. We can take comfort that we are not excessively breaking out of the guidelines. “However, we take the view that it is not just the technical matter of the debt to GDP ratio alone that we should be focusing on, more importantly, we should be focusing on debt service burden. “The amount we spent to service the amount annually can then become a major drag on the annual budget and that is the situation we are worried about. “Borrowing in itself is not bad if you deploy a borrowed fund to generate the capacity to service such loans. So what is crucial is the utilisation of the cumulative borrowing, that we have done,” he said. Ozo-Eson explained that the Federal Government has continued to borrow to finance infrastructure. “We want a situation in which borrowed funds are quickly used to execute projects that have the capacity to generate income. “If you use the fund judiciously and quickly create railway infrastructure between two major towns and you run those rails efficiently and commercially, you

should be able to service that loan from the proceeds that are then generated from the rail service. “I am not sure we are matching borrowing to match our specific projects so that we can expect those projects to run in a way to service those loans. I think these are things we need to start focusing on. “Take for instance, the rail service between Kaduna and Abuja, it is booming due to the complete collapse of security on the highways. “Now we also hear of syndicates that are now taking advantage and there are manipulation of tickets and things like that; those are haemorrhages. “We need to manage this such that it can generate sufficient fund that can be used to service what loan went into its own creation,” he said. Ozo-Eson said that Nigeria must be creative to ensure that the loans are sustainable. “I think that we need in a creative way to do this kinds of things for those loans to be sustainable. “We should be careful not to be back to those days, so that debt overhang will not become a major drag on our capacity to finance development,” he said. In April 2006, Nigeria became the first African country to fully pay off its debt owed to the Paris Club. The Paris Club is a group of officials from major creditor countries whose role is to find co-ordinated and sustainable solutions to the payment difficulties experienced by debtor countries.

Ikpeazu inaugurates work, project evaluation committee Sunday Nwakanma, Umuahia

Maikanti Baru (10%) was flared. “Domestic gas supply capacity was marginally stable at about 1700mmscfd with an average of 1.3bscfd actually supplied to the domestic market,” he added. He noted that of the 1.3bscfd supplied to the domestic market, an average of 761mmscfd was supplied to the power sector while 470mmscfd was supplied to the industries and the balance of 69mmscfd was delivered to the West African market through the West African Gas Pipeline (WAGP).

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has expressed his determination to complete all on-going projects especially roads and resuscitation of moribund industries, especially Aba shoe factory in the state. Ikpeazu stated this in Umuahia while inaugurating its Works and Project Committee headed by the state Commissioner for Works, Hon. Eziuche Ubani, stating that the committee “will oversee and monitor all ongoing projects in the state, especially road infrastructure and to look at some moribund factories/ industries in the state and report back to the government on how to go about completing and resuscitating them”. Represented by his deputy, Rt. Hon. Ude Oko Chukwu, the governor disclosed further that the committee will “monitor and evaluate the on-going road projects he identified as Ururuka, Aba road, Umuahia, Etitiama Nkporo, Port Harcourt road, Aba, Obikabia, Aba-Owerri road, Aba, Osusu, Eziukwu road and the moribund Aba shoe factory in Aba.

He named other members of the committee to include the state Commissioner for Information, John Okiyi Kalu as the Secretary, the Commissioner for Environment, Dr. Aham Uko as member and the Principal Secretary to the governor, Engr Emma Nwabuko as member. Other members are former adviser to Governor Ikpeazu on Social Investment, Chinenye Nwogu, and the state Commissioner for Finance, Obinna Oriaku. The committee was given three weeks to submit its findings. Responding on behalf of other members of the committee, the chairman of the committee, Hon. Eziuche Ubani assured the governor that they would do their best of what is expected of them. Fielding questions from newsmen later, Hon Ubani said disclosed that the roads were not abandoned but ongoing stating that the governor wants to know what should be done to get the projects completed. The committee, he said, would be looking at source of funding, bureaucracy among others.

NERC says over 5m Nigerians still without meter Joseph Inokotong, Abuja

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) on Monday said over five million Nigerian electricity consumers were unmetered. NERC General Manager, Mr. Abdulkadir Shettima, made this known at the launch of Mojec International Limited, bank consumer and retail financing scheme for Meter Asset Programme (MAP). The NERC recently issued permits to some MAPs to commence roll out of prepaid meters to tackle metering gap and estimated billing. According to NERC, the move is in accordance with Section 4(3) of the MAP Regulations 2018, to MAPs that were successful in the procurement conducted by Abuja and Jos Discos. Section 4(3) of the MAP Regulation 2018 also requires all electricity distribution licensees to engage MAP that would assist, as investors, in closing the metering gap. Also, it is to assist in eliminating the practice of estimated billing in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry, NESI. NERC said it has directed that the roll out of meters should commence not later

than May 1, 2019. Shettima said that the country’s unmetered gap stood at five million with the ongoing enumeration being carried out as against 4.7 million recorded as at December 2017. He said that the gap would be closed primarily with investments being paid by various stakeholders in the industry. Shettima commended Mojec for kick -starting the implementation of the MAP with the launch of financing with some consortium of banks. “We are very happy with this event kick starting the implementation of the MAP, but we will be happiest when all Nigerians are metered or metering gap is closed. We are very hopeful that it will be closed with this regulation very soon starting from May 2019,” Shettima said. On the objectives of MAP, he said that the regulation was introduced to eliminate the practice of estimated billing or minimize it to a large extent, adding that “by doing this, we will have happy customers; that is customers will be happier and more willing to pay for the services they consume.” Shettima said that the country would attract private investment with MAP regulation, if the economies were right.

“There will be investments; we have seen it happening in many other sectors across the globe. If it’s not happening, it is because economy is not right. We expect to create a new metering services industry in the value chain. “We have gas, generation, transmission, and now metering and consequently, when the industry matures, we will also have retailing of electricity. I believe it’s going to work, because we are going to get the economies right. “If it’s not right, we will not be seeing these many banks coming in; we won’t be seeing these many investors coming into the industry,” he said. Shettima said that there would be incentives for performance and sanctions for non-performance in MAP regulations to achieve the desired result. “The roles are clear; there are incentives for performance and there are also sanctions for non-performance. We believe that with all of these, there will be complete metering in the Nigerian electricity supply industry soonest,” he added. Shettima, however, commended Mojec for the funding initiative with the financial industry aimed at reducing the metering gap.

Short News Appeal Court nullifies Rep. Akpatason’s election Titus Akhigbe, Benin City The Court of Appeal sitting in Benin on Monday nullified the election of Rep. Peter Akpatason of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a member of the House of Representatives for Akoko-Edo Federal Constituency of Edo state. Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Kabiru Adjoto, had filed an appeal against the judgment of a lower court that held and declared Akpatason as the APC candidate in the February 23 National Assembly elections. Adjoto claimed that he won the party’s primary held on October 18, 2018, but was denied the ticket by the party’s leadership which he alleged was also affirmed by the lower court. Justice Moore Abraham-Adumein leading three other member of the tribunal, in his judgment, held that Rep. Akpatason was not the right candidate who emerged from the APC primary, hence he was not qualified to have contested for the March 9 National Assembly election in the first instance. The tribunal subsequently, declared Adjoto, being the candidate who emerged from the party primaries as the rightful candidate for the Akoko-Edo Federal Constituency. Also, the court nullified the decision of the APC’s National Assembly Primaries Election Appeals Committee headed by former Governor of Edo state, Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor. Justice Abraham-Adumein held that the trial court ought to have heard the case brought before it “since it is its duty to do so. The trial court, for reasons best known to it, failed or neglected to make any pronouncement on the live issue before it.”

Oyo guber: Court orders INEC to allow Adelabu, APC inspect materials

The Election Petition Tribunal in Oyo state on Monday ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to allow the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adebayo Adelabu, to inspect election materials used in the March 9 governorship election. The INEC had declared Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winner of the governorship election after polling 515, 621 votes to defeat Adelabu who had 357, 982 votes. Other respondents in the case are the PDP and the INEC. Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Anthony Akpovi, said he gave the order after considering the application made by Adelabu on its merit and felt it would help the petitioners in maintaining their case against the respondents. He ordered the INEC to allow the petitioners and their agents inspect and obtain all polling documents used in the March 9 governorship election that are in the custody of INEC. Akpovi directed INEC to make available all ballot papers, voter registers and copies of all election materials in all polling units. Earlier, counsel to Adelabu, Olajide Ola, had prayed the court to grant his motion ex parte to inspect the governorship election materials in the state. Adelabu and the APC had filed a petition at the tribunal against INEC for declaring Makinde winner of the governorship election.

Ogoni Clean-up: Paramount ruler urges FG to mobilise contractors

Paramount Ruler of Bodo City in Rivers state, King John Beredon, has urged the federal government to mobilize contractors to site to commence the remediation and recovery stage of the Ogoni clean-up programme. Beredon made the call in an interview on Monday in Bodo, headquarters of Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers state. He said that if contractors were adequately mobilized, Ogoni people and the entire Niger Delta region would have renewed confidence in the federal government’s promise to kick-start the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) report implementation in Ogoniland. However, the paramount ruler commended President Muhammadu Buhari on his political will to drive the

clean-up programme and pleaded that contractors be mobilized to site without further delay. “We expect that contractors with specialized reputation should be mobilized to site; that is the first thing we expect because the presence of the contractors will make the environment lively to accommodate other processes as stipulated in the report. “We expect that the exercise should start in earnest with a progressive proof with contractors starting the remediation of impacted sites. “The coast is now clear, there is absolute peace and the elections are over too, so, let the federal government begin to give adequate attention to fulfilling its promise on Ogoni clean-up. “Going by the UNEP report, I know

that the entire clean-up process is a long term programme, but I believe that if bureaucratic bottlenecks are checked, the exercise will be concluded in good time,” Beredom said. He added that the programme with a life span of about 25 years will take quite a long period to complete, but “the truth is that our people cannot continue existing in a polluted environment for as much as a decade. That is why I’m calling on government to give urgent attention to the plight of Ogoni people and her environment. “The federal government and relevant authorities should adopt a very active method in tackling the Ogoni clean-up just the way fire fighters will stop the spread of fire because it is long overdue.’’

The National Agricultural Seed Council (NASC) has disclosed that the amount of fake seeds in circulation between 2012 - 2016 has decreased by 81 per cent. Director General NASC, Dr. Philip Ojo, disclosed this in Abuja on Monday at the second edition of the Seed Connect 2019. He said the success was achieved through continued collaboration of relevant agencies which ensured that farmers got improved seeds on time to boost their productivity. “With the position Nigeria occupies in the region, there has to be concerted efforts to ensure quality seeds are sold in the country. So much efforts have been taken by sensitisation and surveillance of the seed market, liaising with state government through collaboration with private partners. “Continuous efforts have been made by NASC to curb these activities through market sensitisation and market raids for fake seeds before and during planting season. “We are optimistic that the percentage of fake seeds in circulation will keep declining with more sensitisation and awareness campaign,” he said. Ojo, however, said that in spite of the large quantity of seed produced currently, the country was still experiencing a wide gap between supply and quantity required. “In 2018, the total certified seed produced for seven major crops, maize, rice, sorghum, cowpea, groundnut, millet and soybean was 72, 951 metric tonnes. But, the actual requirement was 422, 229 metric tonnes leaving a deficit of 349, 227 metric tonnes, worth over N130 billion.

NGO suggests electronic voting to end electoral anomalies

A non-governmental Organization, Centre for the Advocacy of Justice and Right (CAJR) has advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to replace the manual voting pattern with the electronic system of voting in the 2023 general polls. The organization at a press conference on Monday in Jos, Plateau state, opined that electronic voting and collation would ease the electoral processes and address most of the challenges faced in the just-concluded general polls. Programme Officer of CAJR, Kingsley Obida, who addressed the press conference, particularly expressed optimism that electronic voting would end ballot box snatching, destruction of electoral materials and vote buying. Obida presented his organization’s findings on the just concluded 2019 polls in Benue, Plateau, Kwara, Niger, Kogi, Nasarawa states, and the FCT, asserting that “from our findings, electronic voting and result collation will address the menace of ballots box snatching, destruction of electoral materials, vote buying and other electoral vices. “That pattern of voting will also build the confidence of Nigerians on the credibility of the electoral process,” he explained.

On NPF’s attitude towards graduate rank and file and inspectors

Afolabi Gambari

In view of the reform in the Nigeria Police Force being envisaged under the new Inspector General Mohammed Adamu, it has become imperative to address the neglect meted to universityand polytechnic graduates in the Force’s rank and file and inspectors by previous administrations in order for justice and sense of belonging to prevail. It is trite to say that the major duty of Police personnel is to protect lives and property which is done through detecting, investigating and apprehending of offenders, as well as guard duties, patrols, check point and prompt response to crime alerts, etc. It is also paramount to stress that these graduates in the rank and file and inspectors are deployed for all the above listed assignments and more, although senior Police officers would be assigned to accompany them. However, it should be stressed that statistics has shown that the rank and file and inspectors have suffered major casualties than the senior officers during Police operations.

Despite the busy schedules assigned to the rank and file and inspectors, however, a considerable number among them have squeezed time for self-improvement in educating themselves even to the PhD level. Interestingly, the Police Force has yet to put in place a system that would periodically absorb these experienced men and women among the rank and file and inspectors into the elite cadre of the Force. This particular situation has resulted in several university graduates retiring as inspectors of Police after 35 years of service; which is a step less than the entry point for a university degree holder. Only a few lucky ones retire as assistant superintendent of Police. The Police Academy is a brilliant idea by the Police Force as it would serve the purpose of a university, which would enable the academy graduates to be absorbed into the Force’s officers’ cadre. But fairness demands that this should not be used to bar the main university and polytechnic-educated ones from also joining the elite cadre,

especially as they deserve their status through the required educational qualification. The last Cadet ASP exercise that was done by the Nigeria Police Force in 2014, which ended in 2015, was in three stages – state, zonal and national – and more than 10,000 university graduates participated. A previous exercise had been held in 2011. After the rigorous screening at the 2014 exercise, the Nigeria Police Commission chose 50 persons per state across the country. Thereafter, the Police Headquarters in Abuja demanded for files of the chosen persons which were promptly submitted in December 2015. To this day, however, nothing has been said by the authorities on the published list of the chosen candidates through a Police signal usually deployed to pass information in the Force. From the foregoing, therefore, it is imperative to call on the incumbent IGP to look into this matter with a view to exacting justice in correcting the wrong of the past. No one doubts the ability and resolve of the IGP to

achieve this onerous task with the dispatch it deserves. He has been a proven academically excellent officer who rose to the top of Police hierarchy in Nigeria through excellence in all his endeavours that have spanned over three decades. In a short time since the IGP assumed office, his inclination for positive reforms have been felt across the Force. So, it is expected of him to work in concert with the Police Service Commission to consider the concerns of the university and polytechnic graduates among the Police rank and file and inspectors so that they can enjoy a desired sense of belonging that would ultimately aid their resolve to give their all to the Nigeria Police Force for the overall benefit of the country. Specifically, the pending files at the Police Headquarters in Abuja since December 2015 should be treated with dispatch so that the would-be beneficiaries could be allowed to proceed on the cadet ASP training that would guarantee their elevation so that the ones coming behind them can also get their due turn.

Why we get killed abroad and perish on the Mediterranean

Festus Adedayo

The execution of the Nigerian woman in South Africa recently, the arrest of another five for armed robbery in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa are tripodal issues that call attention of Nigerians to their worth in the outside world. Eight Nigerians were earlier executed in Saudi Arabia in recent time and twenty other Nigerians are listed today on death row in the same country while many others are in various prisons in other prisons in Saudi. These are critical social issues that should bother us as a people and which invariably point fingers at the deteriorating situation down here at home. They also underscore the absence of Nigeria in the dayto-day affairs of Nigerians and why successive governments have killed thousands of Nigerians vicariously in the last decades. The five Nigerian men were arrested in a seven-minute armed robbery said to have taken place at about midnight on March 20, 2019, at a money exchange house in Sharjah, UAE. In their 20s, they were alleged to have stolen currencies of about Dh2million in the robbery. Armed with hammers, they reportedly smashed the panel of the exchange, jumped into the safe box site and had access to the cash therein. South Africa has over the years been at the fore front of violently bringing out muck from Nigeria’s eye and derogatively hoisting it for her to see. This it does by unleashing xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in that country. Beginning about 2015, a bloody wave of attacks against blacks stirred up unprovoked in this country that Nigeria spent millions of her patrimony rescuing from apartheid. The widespread hate was shot up by derisive racial remarks by the Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, which stoked the fire of resentment against the black population in the country. The major complaint of the attackers against the black is that they had always had upper hands in job placements and were the hub of crime. Nigerians resident in South Africa are held to be in the majority, especially in an area called Hillbrow, Johannesburg.

Areas most affected by the anger of the locals and victims of this hatred are said to be black foreigners in the North West Province of Brits and the Kwazulu-Natal province of Durban. A few weeks ago, three Nigerians were said to have been shot at Sands Hotel Area of Berea in Johannesburg and two of them died immediately, with one of them in a critical situation. These issues are not isolated; they are matters that crop up almost periodically in all parts of the world against Nigerians. Since the era of brain drain under the regime of President Ibrahim Babangida when Nigerian professionals began an unprecedented exodus out of the country in search of greener pastures outside the country, there has been no let in the migration of Nigerians out of their fatherland. Virtually all countries of the world where Nigerians have constituted immense and consistent embarrassment have expressed disgust and exasperation with them. In January this year, the Czech Republic promised to pay Nigerian immigrants so that they could leave their country and never to return. Under a programme it tagged ‘Returns,’ Nigerians and their immigrant counterparts from Afghanistan, Iraq, Mongolia, Russia and Vietnam were cajoled to leave the country for their gross fouling of all immigration laws of the country. A US- based research firm, Pew, in a recent survey, disclosed that almost half of Nigerian adults have indicated their willingness to leave the country in the next five years. Conducted in the year 2018 and spreading across 12 countries and tagged, “Many Nigerians, Tunisians and Kenyans say they plan to leave their countries in the next five years”, Pew said “In Nigeria, Africa’s most populated nation, nearly half (45 percent) of adults say they plan to move to another country within five years, by far the highest share among 12 countries surveyed across four continents.” The above are not in consideration of other Nigerians who die in the process of crossing the Mediterranean. Only recently, a report claimed that no fewer than 10,000 Nigerians died between January and May 2017 in the process of illegally migrating out of the country

through the Mediterranean Sea and the deserts. The report claimed that 4,900 of them died in the Mediterranean while others died while crossing the deserts, all in an attempt to leave Nigeria and cross to Europe. Many of them, when told about the dangers in their bids to cross the Mediterranean, were quoted to have said that it was better for them to perish in the sea than to continue enduring life in Nigeria. In saner countries, these global embarrassments by Nigerians of Nigeria should call for attention of governments and stakeholders in general. The questions to be asked are, why is it that Nigerians do not care a hoot about Nigeria? Why do Nigerians find it more honourable doing dishonourable jobs outside the country rather than doing modestly honourable ones at home? Why does Nigeria count little in the estimation of Nigerians once the issue of emigration is at issue? Ultimately, why is Nigeria absent in the life of a Nigerians? The issues involved in this social crisis revolve round the crisis of leadership in Nigeria in the last few decades, the mismanagement of the country’s resources by these selfsame leaders and the inescapable recession that has gripped Nigeria in its aftermath. All governments in Nigeria, from General Yakubu Gowon, down to Muhammadu Buhari, have millions of pints of blood of Nigerians on their hands, especially the youth who have been killed in the process of or aftermath their decisions to exit the country. Beginning with Gowon, whose myopia about the challenges of the future that is today, manifested grossly, Gowon had once said that Nigeria’s problem was that it had too much money. In the Cement Armada where Nigeria lost equivalents of today’s billions, Nigeria was just on a frolic with her money which ought to have been invested to take care of today. The cluelessness of Gowon’s and successive military and civilian administrations in investing in Nigeria’s tomorrow was one of the foundations of the current calamity which did not begin today. Successive governments, especially the Babangida government, also squandered the

resources of Nigeria that were needed to fortify the future that is today of Nigerians. Thus, the crisis we have on our hands today did not just happen today. Perhaps the most tragic aspect of it is that even today, government doesn’t see that there is an impending calamity which will fall on us all, its route being the consistent hopelessness in the land. For instance, is there any particular state in Nigeria that is making any attempt at securing the future of Nigerian youths? Is there any one of them that understands that the abandonment of the youths and their future is a bomb that will soon explode? The central government is not faring better. Its policies are less than short-term and there is no manifest plan for averting the manifest danger ahead. For instance, is there anyone in government who is bothered that the various Nigerian higher institutions churn out multiple of graduates every year and there is less than two per cent of them who get employed? They are rather investing in the future of their children and wards, neglecting the future of million others. The situation is apparently worse than we may think. Nigeria is not part of the calculation of any Nigerian, talk more of the youth who daily seek to migrate out of the country. How can anyone blame these youths who pine away daily in Nigeria every minute, with no job and future? Nigeria is not attractive to Nigerians to live because it has become a Hobbesian world where life is nasty, brutish and short, a 17th century phrase which described the life that mankind lived in a state of war. Unfortunately, Nigerian governments and leaders do not see this as a ticking time bomb and prefer to spend the Nigerian commonwealth on elephant projects which will apparently not endure. The truth is, until governments and relevant stakeholders see these cases of killings and disaffection with Nigerians abroad as an emergency, we will continue to be embarrassed, killed and get destroyed in the Mediterranean in the process of escaping from the tragic Nigerian situation.

Editorial Commentary

Why Igbos need to look beyond Buhari

Times Guest Columnist Chinemelu Nwokike

We did not support Abubakar because he was a member of the PDP — we endorsed him because he wanted to restructure the country. We have no regrets not supporting Buhari. We are not making any demands from him. A leopard cannot change its spots except there is a miracle. What he cannot do during his first term, you cannot expect him to do that in the second term. His actions, statements, and body language show that he does not mean well for Ndigbo. So, we are not expecting anything from him~ Ohanaeze Ndigbo With the above excerpts from an interview with a national daily, the National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prince Uche Achi-Okpaga affirmed the position of the group that it does not regret supporting Atiku who lost to incumbent President Buhari in the last presidential election. As an Igbo man gifted with intellect and the ability to write I will never be deterred from critically interrogating these kinds of statements from the apex Igbo sociocultural group. Having spent over 40 years of my life living in Nigeria, am conscious of the Igbo struggle but I am equally aware that the South East region is not lagging in any UN developmental index in comparison to the other regions. Much of this progress in development is attributable to self-help by a group naturally endowed with the gift of entrepreneurship, however, just like any other Igbo person, I am confounded by the seeming political decline that has pervaded my region lately. There is an age long position held by many that the dearth of visionary leadership among the Igbo elite as typified by Ohaneze’s statement above is responsible for the current quandary. But then leaders are part of the people, they did not just drop from Mars, so followership is also part and parcel of the problem. Take for example the unfortunate events that transpired in Vice President Osinbajo’s polling unit in VGC. The gentle pastor — who was once the toast of our people during Buhari’s long absence — was said to have been jeered by a small crowd comprising mainly of Igbo residents as he arrived to cast his vote. Some even popped champagne while passing snide remarks that the Vice President shouldn’t have bothered coming to perform his civic duty since Atiku’s victory was already assured. It is not that we do not have the right to a choice, no, far from it. Neither is it that we do not have the prerogative of casting block votes for our choice. The problem is that fatal flaw which the legendary Chinua Achebe described in his book “There Was A Country” as “the dangers of hubris, overweening pride, and

thoughtlessness, which invite envy and hatred or even worse, that can obsess the mind with material success and dispose it to all kinds of crude showiness”. We can agree that Nigerians have different SI units for measuring societal ills. Depending on the tribe, religion or party what may be deplorable to Emeka could be acceptable to Ayo and perhaps even commendable to Shehu and vice versa. But surely there cannot be a worse evocation of the Achebe’s lamentation as depicted by the few Igbos at that VGC polling unit. The Vice President deserves our respect even if we dislike him, his principal or his party. Undoubtedly a combination of factors such as ethnicity and elite mentality determined the outcome of the election in the VGC and indeed Eti Osa Local Government Area as a whole. However, that conspicuously offensive display by those people succeeded in giving an ethnic colouration to the predicted defeat of the APC in a neighbourhood that is perhaps more cosmopolitan than any other part of Lagos. My friend, a wealthy businessman who lives in the area was shaking his head in exasperation as he narrated this. Considering the usual cries of victimization from many Igbos in Lagos he wondered how supposedly wise folks from the east could have been oblivious of the high tech security surveillance around the nation’s number two citizen at any given time. The Lagos State Internal Revenue Service could be sending demand letters to their various addresses the following week. O yes, it may sound far-fetched but in a country where tribal sentiments run so deep, it is not impossible. Honestly, it is totally absurd and disingenuous for any high ranking leader to claim that a region with 42 million people which constitutes about 25% of Nigeria’s population is neither expecting nor demanding anything from a president who is constitutionally obliged to treat all regions with equity. This is not leadership. At most, it is an unnecessary statement informed by a vacuous pride that can only exacerbate the current political isolation. Frankly, the marginalization song is getting boring. If we did not recover from Jonathan’s defeat because he is ‘Ebele’ our brother are equally expected to grieve for Atiku in a similar manner?. The election has been won and lost. It is time to move on with the rest of the country. Time to quit the emotional politics and begin consultations for 2023 because it may be a long time till the next election, but the politicking started long ago. It is time to look beyond Buhari.

OUR POSITION

Tackling the menace of drug abuse in Nigeria The devastating consequences of drug use know no geographic, economic, social, or ethnic boundaries. Each year hundreds of thousands of people around the globe – rich, poor, educated, illiterate, male, female, and even young children die from drug abuse, and millions more are victims of addiction and drug-fueled violence. Beyond the toll drugs take on health and welfare, substance use disorders undermine economic development, diminishes social and political stability, and reduces security in countries and regions around the world. It is no longer news that 70% of youth in Nigeria today get themselves involved in one form of drug abuse or the other. Amidst the widespread commendations over the ban of codeine by the Federal Government, a new large-scale nationwide survey has revealed that drug use by people within the ages of 15 and 64 years in Nigeria is on the rise. A survey on drug use in Nigeria last year had revealed that the nation is breeding a wild generation of drug addicts. This gory state of affairs of substance abuse calls for the declaration of a state of emergency, considering the fact that the youth population is the fulcrum of national development. The nationwide survey by the United Nations Office on Drug and Crime (UNODC) funded by European Union (EU) in partnership with the Federal Government said 10.6 million Nigerians abused cannabis in 2018, while 4.6 million abused opiods. The report said that 2.4 million youths and adults also abused cough syrups with 92,000 more using cocaine. Other drugs commonly abused during the period are tranquilizers and sedatives, solvent, inhalers, amphetamines and prescription stimulants. This survey also reports that one of four drug users in Nigeria is a woman. Adding that the extent of drug use in Nigeria is comparatively high compared to previous global annual prevalence of any drug abuse use. Basically, youths in the country inhale, inject and consume psychotic and narcotic substances and drugs at will, easily evading the scrutiny of a society distracted by economic malaise at the expense of their future wellbeing. Truth be told, the impact of drug abuse is lethal. Many families are contending with drug addicts; some of them have quit schooling and work; others are on the verge of lunacy or battling with acute diseases. The number of drug users in Nigeria is estimated at 14.4 per cent or 14.3 million people aged between 15 and 64 years according to the results of the National Drug Use Survey. The data suggests that the prevalence of past year drug use in Nigeria is more than twice the global average of 5.6 per cent. The extent of drug use in Nigeria is comparatively high when compared with the 2016 global annual prevalence of any drug use of 5.6 per cent among the adult population. There is a gap in meeting the needs for treatment and care for people with drug use disorders. With close to three million Nigerians living with some level of drug dependence, the extremely limited availability of drug counselling and treatment services exacerbates this health crisis. This is indeed striking and alarming and

calls for concerted efforts to mitigate the negative consequences of this rising menace on the health, socio-economic and security of our nation. Even though the Federal Government has over the years responded boldly to this global challenge with innovative, standard-setting drug demand reduction programs, we are of the opinion that there is need to solve the problem. Awareness programmes need to be developed to address the perception of stigma among the youth and their families over substance use and to remove barriers towards seeking care for these problems. These programmes should also address the inability of the youth to perceive addictive behaviours as a health risk. Parents and support persons’ involvement and engagement in youth programmes should be strengthened further as it improves communication and better decision-making for youth health issues. Family-based prevention programmes emphasising parenting skills, training or improving family functioning, communication and family rules regarding substance abuse needs to be introduced. Also, teachers are a major source of information to young people. Hence, strengthening the role and performance of educational institutions, ensuring availability of counselling services, gender sensitivity issues, making life skills courses a part of curriculum are required for health and welfare of young people. Most importantly, in all youth related programmes, young people should be involved and engaged to empower them to take informed decisions.

Fuel queues caused by logistics Short News Omo-Agege is a drowning man, says Emerhor challenges - Kachikwu Nosa Akenzua, Asaba

Joseph Inokotong, Abuja Minister of state, Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, has said that the queues at filling stations is as a result of logistics challenges and has nothing to do with petrol scarcity. Speaking with journalists on Monday, Kachikwu urged the public to ignore rumours of a planned upward review of the pump price of petrol. The minister spoke with newsmen at the opening of the second edition of the Annual International Conference and Exhibition of the Oil and Gas Trainers Association (OGTAN) in Abuja. He said there was no discussion within government circles about petrol pump price review and wondered how the rumours became pervasive. “I took time to go round some stations in Lagos and I discovered that the queues which resurfaced has disappeared and let me tell you the issue of petrol pricing is a sensitive thing. “You can see how the oil unions quickly reacted to the rumour and again the government is sensitive and engages stakeholders in every decision or policy it makes.

“Therefore, this spontaneous reaction and resurfacing of queues, despite assurances by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), is worrisome,” Kachikwu said. He expressed confidence in the management of the NNPC and its capabilities to maintain and meet the supply needs of the country, adding that the logistics gap which prompted the unnecessary panic had been resolved. Saying that no system is perfect, Kachikwu said: “Sometimes you have some of these things happen but as a responsive and responsible government alternative arrangements are always in place such that any gap is taken care of not to allow the situation to escalate.” Chief Executive, National Petroleum Investment Management Services (NAPIMS), Roland Ewubare, who represented the NNPC Group Managing Director, Maikanti Baru, said about 15 vessels laden with products had arrived the country. Baru said that the vessels had discharge challenges, especially at Warri Port, but assured that the situation had been resolved. He said that even with the challenges, the NNPC has about 1 billion liters of petrol which is equivalent to 28 -day supply,

assuring that the nation will not experience scarcity of any sort. Earlier in his goodwill message, Kachikwu had challenged industry operators and stakeholders to take the issue of human capital development very seriously as Nigeria currently lags behind in developing local capacity in the oil and gas industry. The minister expressed concern that the country had spent so much time dealing with issues around the sector, but without tangible success stories to tell. “I want to ask, how can we start building Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) develop modules to transfer to the sub-region. When shall we allow market philosophy to drive the market with government providing enabling environment through adequate policies. “When shall we begin to install our pipelines, build power plants, build our own refineries using in-country resources and attract private sector funding of projects and save government scarce resources,” the minister asked. In his address, a former Head of State and Chairman of the occasion, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, commended OGTAN for making human capital development as a driver for national transformation which is the focus of the conference proceedings.

Leader of the mainstream All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta state, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor has reacted to the recent interview by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, describing the embattled senator as a drowning man grabbing at straws to hang on to his political life. He stated that Omo-Agege is the real cancer that invaded and ravaged the body politics of Delta APC and predicts that now that he has accomplished his task of destabilizing the party and making it fail in the 2019 general elections, Omo-Agege will soon head back to the PDP, his natural home. In a statement released by Mr. Aghogho Orotomah, aide to Emerhor on media and social communications, Emerhor further asserts that Delta APC has known no peace since Omo-Agege was welcomed back to the party in 2017. “Omo-Agege, who used the Labor Party to fight President Buhari and APC in the 2015 general elections was magnanimously admitted into APC in 2017. Upon joining the APC, he kept his group of Labor Party loyalists intact and later transformed it into the Ogboru/Agege faction of today’s Delta APC. “Omo-Agege’s plan from day one was to ride on the back of Chief Great Ogboru to return back to the Senate. He set about this by promising to make Chief Ogboru the state governor in 2019.

Tribunal grants APC order of substitute service on Gov. Udom Isaac Job, Uyo The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal holding in Uyo on Monday granted the All Progressive Congress (APC) an order of substituted service on Gov. Udom Emmanuel of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the first respondent in the election petition filed by the All Progressive Party (APC) candidate, Obong Nsima Ekere. The tribunal under the Chairmanship of Justice A. M. Yakubu, also granted the APC leave to inspect all necessary election materials used during the governorship election listed in the petition. Addressing correspondents in Uyo yesterday, the lead counsel to Ekere and the APC, Chief Victor Iyenam, said the party would proceed immediately to paste the service at the PDP state secretariat. He said that “what we had today was application for substituted service. Efforts to service Gov. Udom Emmanuel failed. “So today, the court has granted us leave to serve the governor through the PDP office in Uyo. And then the other application was to inspect election materials and the court has also granted us that one. “So we will get to INEC office to obtain the documents as listed, inspect them and make photocopies. So, those are the two things that came before the tribunal today.

Wike promises to tackle cult-related killings Amaka Agbu, Port Harcourt Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that the state government would frontally tackle cult-related killings in parts of the state. Speaking at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Monday when the Rivers state Council of Traditional Rulers paid him a congratulatory visit on his re- election, Governor Wike said that his administration would take the fight to cultists. He said: “We will not allow these cultists who want to paint the state black continue to cause mayhem. We will take the fight to them. Enough is enough. These people cannot continue to kill our people.”

Gov. Wike revealed that he met with the state security council on Sunday night and modalities were worked out on how to rid the state of cult-related killings. He urged the Rivers state Council of Traditional Rulers to support the state government in the fight against cultism, saying that prompt information would be useful in tracking down the criminal elements. Wike stated that he would jealously guard the interest of the state and ensure further development throughout the state, adding that “I am a total, unrepentant Rivers man. I will continue to jealously guard the interests of the state.” He thanked the traditional rulers for the solidarity visit, but regretted that some of them were involved in party politics, despite

his advice that they should stay off the political terrain. Earlier, the Chairman of the State Council of Traditional Rulers and Amayanabo of Opobo, King Douglas Dandeson Jaja said that they were at the Government House to congratulate Governor Wike for a welldeserved victory. He thanked the governor for extending the olive branch to his opponents and urged the opponents to accept the governor’s offer.

He noted that it was the first time some communities with difficult terrains in the state, where elections hardly start on time had materials before 7 a.m. and election kicked-off at 8 a.m. prompt. The monarch said that the arrangement was relatively perfect in terms of timing and arrival of materials and personnel, adding that INEC staff were well-behaved during the elections. Also, the Chairman of the state chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Mr. Rex Arum, said that he monitored more than eight local government areas where he discovered that INEC made serious arrangement for the polls. “However, the postponement of the elections was a little dent on the elections as it affected the livelihood of most Nigerians and led to cancellation of most events within the period,’’ he said.

Witness tells court how Fayose’s associate moved N1.2bn Peter Fowoyo, Lagos

A prosecution witness, Sunday Alade in the ongoing trial of former Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose on Monday told a Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos how N1.2 billion was allegedly moved by an associate of the erstwhile governor into a new generation bank. Alade, the 11th prosecution witness was the said bank’s branch manager in Akure in 2014 when the N1.2 billion was allegedly moved to his branch. Led in evidence by prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), the witness said he got a call from his head of operations asking him to prepare to head to Akure Airport to receive a huge consignment of cash from a customer. “On the June 17, 2014, I was in my office in Zenith Bank, Akure. I received a call from my head of operations, Abiodun Oshodi that a customer would be coming to make deposit into his account with the bank. “He said in order to provide security, we should arrange for a bullion van to go to the airport to pick the cash. After an hour, Oshodi came and said the

customer had arrived. He introduced Abiodun Agbele as the customer. “He said we should prepare to go to the airport. I asked for time to arrange for security, but they said that won’t be necessary as they had sufficient security. They came with mobile policemen and some soldiers in a Toyota Hilux van,” Alade said. The witness said he joined Oshodi and Agbele to the airport, along with the bullion van and the security men. He added that “at the airport, we waited for a few minutes before the arrival of the aircraft. Three individuals came out of the aircraft. Two of them walked away. The remaining person introduced himself as O. Adewale. The cash was offloaded into the bullion van and we drove to Zenith Bank, Akure.” He said when they arrived at the bank, the money was counted in the presence of Oshodi, Adewale, Agbele and himself, adding that “the money was counted. It was N724 million. We were informed that there was a balance. We went back to the airport and picked N494 million the second time. “The total cash amounted to N1.219 billion. Another aircraft brought the N494 million. I gathered

that the cash was lodged into three bank accounts – those of De-Privateer, Spotless Investment and Ayodele Fayose. I also understand some cash was taken away that day by Mr. Agbele.” Asked who Adewale was, he answered that Adewale introduced himself as Obanikoro’s aidede-camp. Similarly, when asked if he knew those who walked away from the aircraft when it landed, the witness said “one of them resembled Obanikoro. I never met him in person. But, he resembled the person I have seen on television and in newspapers.” Under cross examination by defence counsel, Ola Olanipekun (SAN) and Olalekan Ojo (SAN), the witness said he was unaware of where the money came from and questioned further if he knew what the money was meant for, he answered in the negative. The witness said it took 10 days to process the cash. Fayose had pleaded not guilty to an 11-count charge when he was arraigned on October 22 last year. Meanwhile, Justice Mojisola Olatoregun has adjourned the matter to May 10 and 14 for continuation of trial.

Stakeholders task INEC on credible, free guber poll in Bayelsa Akam James, Yenagoa Politicians, civil right activists and other stakeholders in Bayelsa state yesterday marked the 11th anniversary of the annulment of the April 14, 2007 governorship election in the state, challenging the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that the November 2 state governorship election is acceptable, credible and free. The stakeholders made up the former governorship candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigerian (ACN), Prince Ebitimi Amgbare, the former Secretary of the Civil Liberties Organization (CLO) and state Coordinator of ERA, Comrade Morris Alagoa and the former Senior Special Assistant to the governor, Comrade Tony Ile, urged INEC to allow the will of the people to prevail during the coming governorship poll. Prince Ebitimi Angbare, who was the petitioner and candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria

(ACN), said though the annulment of the April 15 governorship election marks 11 years since the Appeal Court judgment that annulled the governorship election of April 14, 2007 in Bayelsa state. “As the petitioner in that case, my sole purpose of going the whole hog was to end impunity on the side of INEC, by reviewing the conduct of elections. Since then, it is saddening to note that elections in the state have taken even more dangerous dimensions. “As we work towards the governorship election of November 2 election, l call on all well -meaning Bayelsans to organize and not agonize; we must get INEC to deliver a credible and acceptable election. INEC must take advantage of the stand-alone nature of this election to satisfy us, this should be our minimum demand,” he stated. Also speaking, Morris Alagoa, noted the annulment which occurred due to the improper conduct of INEC “was what has kept Bayelsa where it is now; where it cannot join in the general elections when it is being

conducted in other states. “The past experience favoured the person who was sailing as governor before the re-run and it extended his tenure. And that is not proper. Again, it would be nice that all issues relating to disagreements are addressed before the person declared as winner assumes office as governor.” Said Tony Ile: “My advice to INEC is for the commission to conduct free, fair and credible election without favouring any party. I also urge them to put pressure on the executive arm of government to sign the Electoral Act amendment bill before the president to allow electronic transmission of results and other vital clauses that will aid our electoral process and are in tandem with global best practices. “Lastly, the commission should sound a note of warning to overzealous security agencies, most especially the military whose bad conduct as noticed in Rivers state and other states resulted in the deaths of innocent persons.”

The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, struck out a suit challenging the nomination of Adamawa state Governor, Jubrilla Bindow as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in the March governorship election. Justice Inyang Ekwo struck out the suit on the grounds that it had become a mere academic exercise. The suit was filed by Mahmud Ahmed, who was also a governorship aspirant in the state on the platform of the APC. Ahmed, who came second in the primary election that produced Bindow as the APC’s governorship candidate, prayed the court to disqualify the incumbent governor. He said this was on the grounds that the governor supplied false information relating to his academic qualifications to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). However, Justice Ekwo, in his ruling on a preliminary objection agreed with the governor that the suit had become an academic exercise and would not confer any benefits on any of the two parties.

Gunmen kill pregnant woman, 15 others in Nasarawa

Similarly, Chairman, Traditional Council of Akwanga, Samson Gamu-Yare, described the attack as barbaric.

Extra-judicial killings: Police to stop use of firearms Chioma Joseph, Lagos The acting Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu disclosed on Monday that policemen on patrol will soon stop carrying firearms. He made this known while addressing officers and men in Lagos. The inspectorgeneral’s statement comes weeks after an upsurge in police shooting of innocent persons and various forms of brutality across the nation. Adamu, who was speaking to officers and men of the force at the Police College in Ikeja on Monday, said tasers or stun guns will replace firearms. This he said this was necessary to reduce incidents of fatalities associated with the misapplication of firearms by policemen on patrol. Lamenting the alarming spate of police killings in the country, Adamu said the act contravenes professional practice and also falls short of human rights. Adamu said that “it’s with a deep sense of professional concern that I visit the Lagos state Police Command to address the personnel of the force in the state. This visit has become expedient in view of recent trend of unprofessional conducts by some personnel who in utter disregard to their professional training, international protocols, constitutional dictates, force policies and ethical standards have continued to drag the force onto acts

that pitch it against the citizens we were engaged, paid and statutorily obliged to serve and protect. “I must emphasize that enough is enough. The nation and indeed, the police under the current leadership can no longer tolerate abuses associated with the police either in Lagos or any other part of the country. “I have already ordered that a signal be circulated to all police commands and formations warning of dire consequences, against any personnel that by their incorrigible acts deviates from accepted police culture and values. “In the long term, rather than the use of firearms, we shall henceforth, use technologies and weapon systems such as electro-muscular disruption technology which is commonly known as taser or stun guns by police for routine patrol, arrest duties and other low risk operations as a strategic approach towards reducing incidents of fatalities associated with the misapplication of lethal weapons by the police as first line of response to any threat.” Condemning the act of police brutality and reckless killings, the police boss said sectional heads and area commanders will henceforth, be held responsible when their men err. He also warned that police officers who engage in extra-judicial killing will be charged for murder. “First we condole the families of victims

of the recent incidents of misuse of firearms or other forms of abuse of power by identified police personnel in the state and to share in their grief. “Second is to reassure citizens that as an institution, the Nigeria Police does not and will never condone any form of abuse of power, acts resulting in misuse of firearms, over -zealousness and sundry unprofessional conducts by any member of the police regardless of his or her rank or position. “I want to also reinforce the extant force accountability policy which holds any officer professionally and criminally liable for the consequences of their actions, particularly, if such misuse of power results in the death, injury or indignity of citizens. “Towards this end, I am sounding this note of warning loud and clear that henceforth, any police personnel that insists on being incorrigible by engaging in abuse of his or her powers or misuse his weapons with fatal outcomes in utter disregard of statutory provisions will be arrested, investigated through our internal disciplinary machinery and if found culpable, shall be dismissed from service. “In addition, such personnel will be charged to court for murder or sundry offences depending on his or her level of criminal liability in the instance. This is the force policy and no-one should be in doubt as to our strong will to enforce it.”

Bayelsa elders halt succession crisis in IYC Akam James, Yenagoa

Bayelsa elders under the guise of the Ijaw Youth Elders Advisory Council have intervened and halted a possible crisis among Ijaw youth in the central zone over who occupies the chairmanship position following the election of the incumbent, Tare Porri, as a member of the state House of Assembly representing Ekeremor Constituency 2. The succession battle which has heightened tension among Ijaw youth in the central zone, was due to the non-availability of a transition plan on how to choose a successor. The Elders’ Advisory Council under the Chairmanship of Mike Wenobowei, set up a 10-man committee headed by Elder Warri Welman, to shop for a credible replacement for Porri from the Sagbama/Ekeremor axis to complete the remaining period of his tenure. Speaking yesterday in Yenagoa while submitting the 7-page report to the IYC Elders Advisory Council, the Chairman of the committee, Comrade Warri Welman, noted that the committee consulted widely and that superior argument prevailed in the choice of three candidates, Comrade Ebilade Ekerefe, Miss Emi Egbe and Thomas Tenkiri to vie for the vacant position before Comrade Thomas Tenkiri eventually emerged as the chosen candidate.

Police inaugurate “Operation Puff Adder” in Kogi

The police on Monday inaugurated “Operation Puff Adder” as parts of efforts to curb banditry and kidnapping in Kogi state. Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 8, Mr. Moses Jitoboh, who inaugurated the operation called on stakeholders to join hands with the police to ensure the success of the operation. He said the support of the stakeholders became necessary because the operation by its design, depends on the people in various communities to achieve its objectives. According to him, those behind the incessant acts of banditry and kidnapping dwell among the people, adding that they should be reported to security agents for proper action. Jitoboh urged traditional rulers and leaders of the socio-cultural groups in the state to be ready to work with the police by volunteering useful information about criminals and their hideouts. He said that officers and men of the operation had been mandated to pursue and fish out criminals from the bush and other hideouts, and assured that the police would discharge their duty professionally and without infringing on the rights of citizens. Speaking at the event, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Busari, said that a 340-man squad had been deployed for the operation in the state, adding that their efforts would be complemented by more officers and men from the command.

Before CCT Justice Onnoghen’s trial ends Andrew Orolua

The Chairman of Code of Conduct Tribunal, Mr. Danladi Yakubu Umar announcement on Monday that the tribunal will delivered its final judgment on the six count charges of non asset declaration and false assets declaration brought against the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen on April 28 seem as relieve to the defendant. Onnoghen who sat in the dock in a tense mode appeared as if the load on him in the past three months of trial, which his critics has described as shameful and humiliation have been dropped from him. He walked quietly to his awaiting jeep with his escorts and the two convoy official jeeps drove along with him out of the premises of the Code of Conduct Tribunal that have received him since January this year as a defendant , a word which the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 benevolently ascribed to an accused person , just to mitigate shame attached to an accused person. Yesterday appearance of Justice Onnoghen at the tribunal may perhaps not be his last in that court room, as he has Thursday April 28, 2019

date to keep. On that date, the three member tribunal will hand down their verdicts, either convicting him of the six count charge or discharge and acquit him. Onnoghen’s lawyers Nkanu SAN and two other Senior advocates of Nigeria who remained on the defence list that have depleted from the initial 17 Senior advocates of Nigeria at his arraignment in January, brilliantly argued that the charges be dismissed. This case is about non declaration of assets and false declaration of assets, he told the tribunal. Counts 2 to 6 complained of false assets declaration. We submit that where the complainant alleged false declaration of assets it presupposed that there was a declaration , therefore false declaration does not arise. He told the tribunal that Counts 2 to 6 are mutually exclusive and were not supported by any known law. Complainant submitted that by exhibit C , that is Onnoghen voluntary statement ,the defendant seem to have admitted to the charge. That submission is incorrect in law, he said. It is true in ordinary parlance that once defendant accept it means he admitted. It is not so straight forward in law. The contention is admitting to all the ingredients of the offences . When he said he forgot that don’t means he confessed to the offence.

Thirdly, section 15 of the Code of Conduct Bureau Act is in conflict with the Constitution of the Federal Republic Nigeria 1999 paragraph 11 of the Fifth Schedule. The section on which the charge was prepared is unconstitutional and should be struck down and declare as inconsistent. He said that the elements the prosecution had labour to prove are in the act ,not in the Fifth schedule. Therefore urged that the charges be dismissed as prosecution has not prove the elements. They have acted in ignorant. On false statement, Onnoghen lawyer said that a declaration that is claim to be false must have been verified. Prosecution in the instant case established a declaration but failed to establish verification. Paragraph 27 of the prosecution address particularly page 13 talked about partial false , which means the prosecution had admitted that there is a doubt . He such doubt should held in favour of the defendant as the charges are defective. In his response, prosecution lawyer Aliyu Umar SAN who had a little misunderstanding with his junior Professor Zainab Duke and quickly withdrew Duke appearance , urged the tribunal to hold that prosecution has prove its case beyond reasonable doubt against the defendant. He also prayed the tribunal to hold that

Onnoghen is guilt as charged. He urged the tribunal to rely on facts before the tribunal in convicting the defendant. It is a misconception for the defendant to claim that the charge was not elegantly drafted. On the Constitutional issue raised by the defendant , Umar said that Constitution is not a statute for punishment .He said that in any case the conflict with the Constitution has since been resolved by the appellate court. According to him ,beyond reasonable doubt is not beyond iota of doubt . The defendant did not declare his assets as provided for in the CCB Act or Constitution because the bank accounts which are in contention were in existence when he declared his assets ,he chose to forget them. Umar prayed the tribunal to convict the defendant. It was not only Onnoghen that looked surprise that the trial is coming to an end, the Chairman of the tribunal was . He lacked appropriate word to end the session and have to ask the lawyers “so I will take date for judgment “. The usual heated tension that has characterized the trial was absent yesterday. It appears Onnoghen resignation letter which is awaiting President Muhammadu Buhari acceptance or rejection had done the trick, after all that was the motive of the charge.

Plea bargaining in economic and financial crime: A deterrent or an encouraging factor? By: Dinne, Israel Chukwuemeka Esq. 08068613825 Abuja On the 4th day of June 2004, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Establishment) Act with its 47 Sections as enacted came into effect. The Commission therein established was vested with a long list of functions and special powers which can be summarized as the investigation of ALL financial crimes, the co-ordination and enforcement of all economic and financial crimes laws and enforcement functions conferred on any other person or authority among others. We will not forget to mention that the Commission also has the mandate to adopt and apply measures which will certainly eradicate the commission of economic and financial crimes (and we must keep reminding ourselves of the letter of encouragement written by Peter the Apostle to the Jewish Christians in 1st Peter 4:17 where he wrote that ‘’For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin first among God’s own children. And if even we who are Christians must be judged, what terrible fate awaits those who have never believed in the Lord?’’). There is no doubt and nothing novel again in stating that Nigeria have suffered and lost a lot to economic and financial crimes before the advent of all these regulatory and preventive legislations in this area till date even in their presence as the plethora of incidents and court cases both decided and pending have shown. Economic and financial crimes have been defined under Section 46 of the EFCC Act to mean ‘’the non-violent criminal and illicit activity committed with the objectives of earning wealth illegally either individually or in a group or organized manner thereby violating existing legislation governing the economic activities of government and its administration and includes any form of fraud, narcotic drug trafficking, money laundering, embezzlement, bribery, looting and any form of corrupt malpractices, illegal arms deal, smuggling, human trafficking and child labour, illegal oil bunkering and illegal mining, tax evasion, foreign exchange malpractice including counterfeiting of currency, theft of intellectual property and piracy, open market abuse, dumping

of toxic wastes and prohibited goods, etc’’ though the writer here has a lot of issues and disagreement with the above definition. Our laws seems to be sufficient in creating, defining and stating the punishment for all the criminal acts one may envisage and that thrives in Nigeria. However, it has been a subject of divergent opinions on the adequacy or otherwise of the punishments set out for these actions. Economic and financial crimes have proofed to be capable of coming up in different forms and styles including those stated in the definition section, those that have been identified and labelled a crime in Nigeria has their attendant punishments set out in the relevant laws. All the crimes provided for under the EFCC Act as well as under those laws which it regulates by virtue of its Section 7 (2), are all allowed to be tried by the Federal High Court, the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory or the High Court of a State as the case may be. Presently, in the Federal High Court and the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, criminal proceedings are regulated by the provisions of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 (ACJA). A proper look and study of the ACJA shows its segmentations and succinct provisions on the procedures for different crimes and stages to ensure that in criminal administration, justice is properly attained and done. One of these is as provided in Chapter 28 of the ACJA which deals on Plea Bargain and Plea Generally. Proceedings and the procedure under plea bargain can be referred to as being sui generis, and Section 270 of ACJA painstakingly and explicitly outlined the guidelines in its 18 sub-sections which made it the longest section among the 495 sections of the Act. The whole essence of the section and the guidelines set out therein is certainly one of the ways to ensure quick dispensation of justice, saving judicial time and decongesting of cause lists. An understanding of this plea bargain process can in a nutshell be described as a situation where a defendant pleads guilty to the offence he/she is being tried of but goes ahead to take responsibility/ bear the punishment of such offence in part – mostly less than the prescribed punishment. This process can be initiated either by the defendant, through his representative or even the prosecutor. The term is usually discussed and agreed upon between the defendant and the prosecutor and where practicable,

the victim and at this point, the term is presented to the Court who has little or no contribution to make and where he does, it only comes in the form of enquiry or suggestion. In coming to an agreed term, the prosecutor is discouraged from entering into this bargain with the defendant if IN HIS VIEW the offer IS NOT in the interest of justice, the public interest, public policy and the need to prevent abuse of legal process. On the other hand, he is also persuaded to consider certain factors listed in Section 270 (5)(b)(i) – (ix) in determining whether the offered bargain is in the public interest. In economic and financial crimes, the mostly available punishments upon conviction are restitution, forfeiture, imprisonment or fine, and if the plea bargaining doctrine is applicable to ALL crimes including economic and financial crimes, and YES IT IS, and if it’s actual meaning remains ‘’I am really guilty of this offence which punishment is 100% restitution, forfeiture, imprisonment or fine, but for 1, 2 or 3 reasons, I am sorry about the above act/omission of mine so punish me at 40% restitution, forfeiture, imprisonment or fine and let me go’’, and again YES, that is the import. THEN, it leaves more to be desired on the determination of our laws to do justice in these matters and come up with measures capable of adequately punishing the offenders and as well constitute a deterrent measure to the ‘’lords’’ and recalcitrant perpetrators and prospective offenders of economic and financial crimes. It cannot be overemphasised that equity and the law is not expected and cannot lend itself to be used as a machinery/engine of fraud or be seen in any way to allow a man that is guilty of an offence (a criminal who is perceived as a danger to the society) to go off the hook and walk freely on the streets for the mere fact that all the actors involved desire quick dispensation of justice and for the sake of ‘’Public Interest’’. We had earlier discussed the injustice of the administration of criminal justice system on the victim (on this page) most times and the issue here is not left out since going by the provided definition of economic and financial crime and other relevant sections of the Act, there is hardly any of them that referred to the pacification of the victim as we will not lose sight of the fact that there is no crime that is a crime without a victim. Back to the issue here, where in a case plea bargain is initiated

and successfully carried out in an economic and financial crime, it goes without saying that the defendant in that case have successfully been allowed to go home and enjoy part of the proceeds from his criminal enterprise. The fact that the prosecutor who this process is LARGELY left at his discretion is almost always vulnerable and accessible to these ‘’crime lords’’ (History have shown that it is mainly the high class members of the society that do engage or are behind almost all the economic and financial crimes in the society) who have the necessary and irresistible offers to make to these prosecutors is another issue to consider if the fight against economic and financial crimes will succeed. Also, recalling that one of the conditions upon which the prosecutor is advised to OFFER A PLEA BARGAIN TO A DEFENDANT charged with an offence is in a situation where the evidence of the prosecution is INSUFFICIENT to prove the offence charged beyond reasonable doubt as seen in Sections 270 (2)(b) and 270 (2)(a). As contrary and contradicting the above is to the basic criminal administration requirements, the questions then are, will a prosecutor ASSUMING HE HAS, provide evidence against the defendant that will be sufficient to prove the offence beyond reasonable doubt where he has the intention to offer a plea bargain to the defendant? Can a prosecutor set out with the intention to offer a plea bargain to the defendant for any reason in a matter? Responding to the above question, the answer will be in the affirmative as reasons abound why a prosecutor will do so, either to ensure that he records more cases as being handled and concluded by him, or to meet the set target for the period which is capable of being part of his promotional appraisal or even because of the persons involved as the defendant or those behind and ‘’sponsoring’’ the defendant. Unfortunately, it has come to stay with us and if the defendants or prosecutors in every economic and financial crime decides to offer or receive a plea bargain, we may sooner than later inadvertently establish an ugly enterprise so interesting and lucrative that a large number of the citizens will be tempted to give it a trial and may succeed. Whatever plea bargain intends to achieve in an economic and financial crime, we must continue to remember that while justice delayed is justice denied, JUSTICE RUSHED CAN BE JUSTICE CRUSHED.

Unions suspend picketing of Caverton Helicopters Chukwuemeke Iwelunmo The joint picketing of Caverton Helicopters today by the National Union of Air Transport Employees(NUATE) and four other labour fronts have been called off. The other unions that had geared up for the picketing are Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals (ANAP), Nigeria Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers(NAAPE), Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria(ATSSSAN) and Amalgamated of Unions of Civil Servant Technical and Recreational Services (AUCPTER). However, before the picketing began the management of Caverton Helicopters and top officials of the Unions went into a closed-door meeting. At the end of the meeting, the SecretaryGeneral of NUATE, Comrade Ocheme Abah confirmed that the two issues at stake have been amicably resolved and that the Management of Caverton Helicopters has agreed to pay severance package to workers made redundant by the management and also allow workers to unionise without hindrance as their right to freedom of association as guaranteed by the country’s constitution and Nigeria’s Labour Law. Details of the agreement are expected to be endorsed by all the parties involved, Comrade Abah said this was why the picketing of Caverton Helicopters premises was suspended with beliefs that management would stick with the tenets of the amicable resolutions reached. However, labour unions went ahead to picket two in-flight catering services company, ASLnewcrest and Serve Air who were alleged not to have in place the acceptable condition of service for their staff and also disallowed their workers to associate freely with the union of their choice Specifically, at ASLnewcrest, Comrade Abah accused the management of operating ‘a slave camp’ where workers are subjected to inhuman treatment with no Condition of Service while those laid off through management imposed redundancy policy have not been paid off several months after their severance. while disallowing those in service to freely unionise. The protest march which began at the local airport road roundabout at about 9.00am terminated at the ASL premises where Comrade Abah addressed the workers at about noon.

InfraCos: Why N3bn subsidy is not enough Ladesope Ladelokun In a bid to boost broadband penetration and reduce the high cost of broadband bandwidth, Nigeria, in 2015, saw the need to license Infrastructure Companies (InfraCos) to provide broadband infrastructure across the length and breadth of the country. To demonstrate its commitment, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) licensed the first set of InfraCosMainOne for Lagos zone and IHS for Northcentral zone. Also, in December 2017, the Commission licensed additional two InfraCos - Zinox Technologies for Southeast and Brinks Integrated Solutions for Northeast. Subsequently, Raeana Nigeria Limited,

O’dua InfraCo Resources Limited and Fleeks Networks Limited got the licenses for Southsouth, Southwest and Northwest zones respectively. However, owing to difficulties in securing Right of Way approval to deploy infrastructure in the North-central zone and high roll out charges by state agencies, IHS, had returned its license to the Commission last year. It would be recalled that the Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Prof Umar Danbatta, had in an interaction with journalists in Abuja said the Commission had made N3 billion subsidy budget to assist InfraCos in the deployment of services in the country, noting that the said money had been approved by the National Assembly would be executed on a yearly basis.

Meanwhile, the industry experts say though the planned subsidy is commendable, more needs to be done to allow for seamless deployment of services. They argue that the barriers obstructing telecoms expansion may also hinder the planned expansion of broadband infrastructure by licensed InfraCos. Speaking with The Daily Times on the matter, Chairman, Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON), Mr Gbenga Adebayo, said the issues confronting InfraCos cannot be addressed in isolation, noting that the problems InfraCos face are not different from the ones the entire ecosystem faces. Adebayo stressed that the issues have to be approached in a non-

discriminatory manner because what affects one affects all, adding that it is one sector with common problems. He said the money needed to deal with the myriad of problems in the ecosystem cannot be quantified. “The promise is quite reassuring, but we have to wait and see how that plays out and how the government wants to provide the said subsidy. However, the obstacles confronting the InfraCos are the same that the entire sector faces as we are in a common ecosystem. These challenges have to be confronted in a non-discriminatory manner. We are in one sector with common problems. So, the issues confronting the InfraCos cannot be solved in isolation. We can’t quantify the amount to deal with our myriad of problems”, he explained.

Afam GenCO: FG approves Diamond Stripes, 2 others for 100% acquisition Joseph Inokotong The Federal Government has granted approval to three consortia to participate in the financial bids opening for the acquisition of 100 per cent shares in Afam Electricity Generation Company. The companies are Diamond Stripes Consortium, Transcorp Power Consortium and Unicorn Consortium. In a statement by the Head, Public Communications, Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), Amina Othman, on Monday in Abuja, the National Council on Privatisation (NCP) gave the approval after its first meeting in 2019, held on April 12. According to her, the three consortia

met the benchmark score of 750 points after evaluation in accordance with the criteria set out in the Requests for Proposal (RfPs). She said that other decisions taken by the council included approval for Quest Electric Nigeria Limited to proceed to the financial bids opening stage for the re-privatisation of the Yola Electricity Distribution Company (YEDC). It also approved the appointment of Lead Capital Consortium as Financial Adviser for the restructuring, recapitalisation, and partial privatisation of the Bank of Agriculture (BOA). The council appointed Vesta Healthcare Partners as consultants to carry out a diagnostic review of the Nigerian Health Sector.

It delisted Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja from post Privatisation monitoring by the BPE. Also decided on was the privatisation of the Nigeria Communication Satellite Limited (NIGCOMSAT) through a strategic core investor sale and commencement of the process of listing it in the schedule of the Public Enterprises (Privatisation & Commercialisation) Act of 1999. Othman said that the privatisation of Afam Electricity Generation Company, which encapsulates, Adam Power Plc and Afam Three Fast Power Limited, could not be concluded during the first round of the power privatisation in 2013 due to issues stemming from gas supply to the plant. “Following the termination of the

Share Purchase Agreement (SPA) signed between Taleveras (the then Preferred Bidder) and BPE in 2016, the council at its first meeting of 2017 held on August 22 and 23, approved the privatisation of the enterprise based on a strategy to be recommended by the Transaction Advisers. According to her, it is expected that the successful bidders will be responsible for operating the generation and distribution companies. She said they would also, make the necessary investments to improve the generation and distribution networks and customer service in line with the objectives of the federal the government set out in the National Electric Power Policy (NEPP).

Easter Promo: EcobankPay offers special discount to shoppers Ecobank Nigeria Limited has announced a special discount for shoppers using the EcobankPay option to pay for their goods and services during the Easter holidays and will run to the end of April 2019.

Buhari to intensify, consolidate implementation of ERGP in second term - Minister Mathew Dadiya, Abuja The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s vision for even faster growth for Nigeria in his second the term, having just won re-election, would be base on the implementation of the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP). Udoma who stated this at a press conference addressed jointly by the delegation leaders to the just concluded IMF/World Bank Group meetings in Washington DC, explained that the meetings presented an opportunity to share with potential investors, and development partners, the focus of the Nigerian government. He said that President Buhari plans

to achieve this by intensifying and consolidating on the implementation of the policies and programmes of the ERGP. The delegation comprised the Finance Minister, Mrs Zainab Ahmed; the Central Bank Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele; and the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma. The minister noted that Nigeria stands to benefit from the interface of the country’s delegation in Washington DC as the responses from all the delegation’s engagements with the global business community have been positive and encouraging. During the meeting, Udoma participated in the presentation by the IMF of the Regional Economic Outlook (REO) for SubSaharan Africa (SSA), State of the African Region, Annual Ministerial Roundtable on Social Safety Nets, a business session with some members of the US Business

Community, meetings with credit and rating agencies, a meeting with officials of the International Financial Corporation (IFC), and a coalition of civil society groups, amongst others. He said the delegation has noted the indication by the REO for Sub-Saharan Africa and the advice by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), while the economic recovery in the sub-region is expected to continue, from 3.0 per cent GDP growth in 2018 to 3.5per cent in 2019 and 3.7 per cent in 2020, more should be done to shield the recovery against risks arising from both domestic and external shocks. At the State of the African Region, the Minister said discussions centred on the role of regional cooperation in tackling fragility in Africa. “A major takeaway was the need to pay attention to women empowerment and education of the girl child, as these have positive implications

in dealing with fragility and reducing conflicts. As you know, investing in our people and the issue of girl-child education are some of the objectives of the ERGP.” The Finance Minister, Mrs Ahmed, who was the leader of the Nigerian delegation, spoke of her various meetings with relevant IMF and World Bank organs, Central Bank Governors, credit and rating agencies, among others. She pointed out that in her capacity as the representative of 23 African countries, she addressed the IMFC and issued a statement calling for normalization of trade relations among the contending parties as well as called for concerted efforts to support multilateralism and avoid protectionist sentiments. Mrs Ahmed said she was encouraged by the prospects of the resolutions at the various meetings which signposts a better economic future for Nigeria and Africa.

Namibia High Commission opens visa processing office in Lagos Chukwuemeke Iwelunmo Namibian High Commission, as part of plans to stimulate passenger and cargo services for its carrier, Air Namibia has opened a Visa Processing Office in Lagos State, Nigeria to ease the process of visa procurement for travellers to that country. According to the High Commission, the visa processing office in Lagos was opened after enquiries and research that point to the fact that 60% of air travellers above its Air Namibia resides around Lagos and its surrounding environment. The commission is also seeking better partnership with Nigeria and Lagos in particular for business, education, tourism as well as other areas of mutual benefits for both countries.

Speaking yesterday at the Namibia Business Forum with the theme: Namibia is Open For Business, held at the GHI Building Ikeja, Namibian High Commissioner, His Excellency, Humphrey Geiseb said: “Our decision therefore to open a visa processing centre in Lagos in partnership with Air Namibia is a strategic move aimed at easing the burden of having to travel to Abuja before getting a visa thereby further boosting diplomatic ties and trade between Nigeria and Namibia and offering choices and easy access to our highly esteemed visitors and would-be investors.” Geiseb said opportunities exist in investment for both local and international markets. “The government is seeking to attract foreign investors to participate in publicprivate partnerships (PPP), particularly

in the health, transportation and housing sectors. A law to facilitate PPP was passed in 2017 and implementation is ongoing.” “Discerning Nigerians who love to relax and those willing to invest can take advantage of the many tourist attractions and investment opportunities that abound across the country,” he said. Also speaking, Acting General Manager Air Namibia, Mr Wimpe Van Vuuren said that the airline has been around for 70 years having metamorphosed from South West Airline and has continued to grow and develop stating that this was made possible with the support of the government. He said,” We have about 2.4 million population, and had 1.6 million tourists in the year 2018, that is over 50 per cent of the population and Air Namibia is playing a significant role, in the connectivity, to

promote tourism, travel, cargo, business.” He stated that since 29 July 2019 when the airline started operations in Nigeria, Namibia has only always given back to Nigeria making sure that all the handlers of the airline are Nigerians, the General Sales Agents are Nigerians, according to Vauren, ‘Its part of our plans to give back.” Lagos state Commissioner of Tourism, Steve Ayorinde representing the Governor of Lagos State welcomed the development but stated that the country officials also needed to look into visa on arrival to boost their figures as well as online visas. “Visas on arrival is the way to go, that is the way to trust people and to empower people.

Heritage Bank honours outgoing General Manager/Chief Compliance Officer It was a rain of accolades for the outgoing General Manager and Chief Compliance Officer of Heritage Bank Plc, Mr Adewumi Adeniyi, on Monday as management colleagues praised him for his exceptional contribution to the growth of the sector after an unbroken stint of 37 years of working in the banking industry. Speaking at the send fourth party at the corporate headquarters of the bank, Mr Jude Monye, Executive Director South West, Heritage Bank, described the celebrant, fondly called Oga Wumi by his colleagues, as an embodiment of everything called Heritage Bank as well as being a consummate banker of note. According to him, Oga Wumi is a man that will stand by anyone at any time and on any day because he has a caring heart. “He cares for his colleagues, both senior and junior members of staff of the bank and he is also full of compassion,” Monye said. The newly appointed Chief Compliance Officer for Heritage Bank, Mrs. Oluwatomi Ojo, in her remarks on the occasion, described Oga Wumi in glowing terms. “Our relationship was very cordial. He is someone who has extensive banking experience in various areas. He is also someone that is extremely matured, calm, think rationally and very strategic. “People that worked with him also received the fatherly touch but he is also a firm professional who is not afraid to take the unpopular decision when circumstances call for it. He is a well-rounded leader and very compassionate to his colleagues both at personal and official levels.” In his remarks, Mr. Adeniyi appreciated the board and management of the bank for the honour and also thanked God for such a memorable day. While assuring his now former colleagues that he is just a phone call away, Mr. Adeniyi encouraged them to carry on professionally and to occupy the space that God has given them. He noted that the send forth party appears to be more elaborate than any other he had experienced as a worker in the bank. Saying he would greatly miss the people who worked with him, he encouraged them to continue to provide leadership for the bank and to work towards the achievement of the common goals of the organisation so that customers and shareholders of the bank could continue to enjoy better services and returns on their investments.

Lagos lawmaker, community leader tango over alleged unlawful demolition of property Stories by Patrick Okohue A community leader in Lagos State, High Chief Kehinde Kalejaiye has dragged lawmaker in the state House of Assembly, representing Somolu constituency 11, Hon Rotimi Abiru to a Lagos High Court over allegations of unlawful demolition of property allegedly belonging to the community head of Otumara 11 and Apapa. The High Chief Kalejaiye is alleging that the building which served as a viewing centre and bar which he said was his only source of livelihood was demolished by agents of the lawmaker. But, the lawmaker has denied any complicity in the matter, saying that he has no hands whatsoever in the said demolition. Narrating his ordeal at the court premise, the claimant, High Chief Kalejaiye said he was shocked with the act that was allegedly put up by the politician and lawmaker, who he accused of using his influence and state power to trample on his rights. He said “I am filing for malicious demolition of my property by Hon Rotimi Abiru. This is not about claiming ownership of land. In 2013, I started a viewing centre and bar service. However I was surprised when in 2014 Hon Abiru came around with his thugs numbering about four to destroy and remove the roof of the building, the cable dish, television sets and other equipment on the alleged ground that the land where the building is located belongs to him. “To say I was shocked was an understatement. Meanwhile while I was still contending with the reality on ground and trying to find a way out of the oppression by the politician, I got a message from home that my attention was needed at Police Department of Investigation in Panti, Yaba for assaulting and threatening to kill Hon. Rotimi Abiru.

Hon Rotimi Abiru

“I informed my lawyer and after thorough investigation of the allegation by the police, it was discovered that there was no substance in the allegation and that he misled the police and I was allowed to go home. But with the failure to settle the conflict amicably the investigating officer advised us to seek court redress hence the April 10th court date because of my strong faith in the judiciary as the last hope of a helpless citizen. I want justice to prevail.” In his defence dated 29th January, 2019 and signed by the lawmaker himself, Hon. Rotimi Abiru denied any involvement in the alleged demolition saying he is neither aware nor responsible for any purported loss of income or damages as a result of a demolition exercise carried out by an agency of the government, the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA).

Hon. Abiru who is the Chief Whip of the Lagos State House of Assembly explained further in his statement of defence that his mother had been using the said building since the early 70’s for her food business and she and her children including himself enjoyed quiet, peaceful and uninterrupted possession of the property. He however wondered why anyone would lay claim to what rightfully belonged to his family. He narrated further, “When my mother stopped her food business, she gave out the property to a night club known then as Cedar Club as tenant and the Club used it for its social activities until my mother’s demise in 2013. However after the demise of my mother I ensured that the property was secured by visiting it from time to time and it was during one of such visits in 2014 that I noticed that the fence erected had been destroyed and a structure erected on the land. “I was informed by the people in the neighbourhood that it was Chief Kalejaiye whom I had known as an employee of Cedar Club, the former tenant of my mother that was responsible. How is this possible? “I am neither a party nor privy to the destruction of the illegal structure erected on my father’s land. I am neither a staff nor official of Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) that carried out the demolition of High Chief Kalejaiye illegal structure on the land of Alhaji M.A.O Abiru and neither did I at any time convey thugs to the land to remove any illegal structure thereon.” Meanwhile counsel to Hon Rotimi Abiru, Barr Mubaraq Abdullahi has said the hearing before the honorable court is to explore the Compulsory Management Conference (CMC) which avail both parties in the suit to explore an out of court settlement which according to him his client is ready for.

PDP Senators-elect speaks on who will get their backing for President of 9th Senate The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senators-Elect in the 9th Senate, has said that the 9th Senate would be an appendage of the executive, if Sen. Ahmed Lawan, who was endorsed by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), is allowed to become the Senate President. Speaking in separate interviews with select journalists in Abuja, the PDP Senators-elect vowed to give block vote to any APC candidate who will not be seen as a “rubber stamp” of the executive and can protect the independence of the legislature. The PDP Senators-elect said they believed that the endorsement of

Lawan by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will easily compromise the Independence of the legislature. The PDP Senators-elect are, however, silent on their preferred candidate for the Senate President seat, even though Senator Danjuma Goje and former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume are in the race. A Senator-elect from the North Central who pleaded anonymity posited: “I have been a member in the House of Representatives before and I know what Independence of the legislature means.” “Should our leaders be made outside?

Should some people sit somewhere and decide our leadership?” “As opposition, we will take decision on our own which aligns with the interest of Nigerians and which would further grow our democracy.” It will be recalled that former governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, had last week expressed similar concern, pointing out that the ruling All Progressives Congress might be in for another shocker. Meanwhile, attempt to speak with the former governor of Gombe State and Chairman Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Danjuma Goje did not yield results.

Omo-Agege

Emerhor accuses Omo-Agege of negotiating his way back to PDP The leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, has alleged that Senator Ovie Omo-Agege may be scheming to return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Emerhor, who was reacting to a recent interview by the Delta Central Senator, said that having succeeded in making the APC fail in the 2019 general elections, it was only a matter of time before he goes back to his “natural home”, the PDP. Describing him as “the real cancer that invaded and ravaged the body politics of Delta APC”, Emerhor, in a statement by his media aide, Mr. Aghogho Orotomah on Monday alleged that Omo-Agege’s incursion into the party in 2017 has only created disunity and factionalism. He asserted that the Senator thwarted the mapped out plans of the mainstream APC in the state by encouraging Chief Great Ogboru to run for governorship despite the rotational and zoning factor. “Omo-Agege upon joining APC kept his group of Labor Party joiners intact and later transformed it into the Ogboru/ Agege faction of today’s Delta APC. “Omo-Agege’s plan from day one was to ride on the back of Chief Great Ogboru to return to the senate. “He set about this by promising Chief Ogboru of making him

Delta State governor in 2019. Against the run of play of equity and political reality, Omo-Agege sold this dummy to Chief Ogboru that power rotation and zoning in Delta State do not matter, that the Delta North do not deserve to complete their 8 years.” Positing that Omo-Agege is looking for whom to cast the blame on after wholly failing the party in the recently conducted polls, the statement added that his political career, including his deputy Senate president dream, is heading for the rocks following the court judgements annulling his candidacy. “Omo-Agege not only sabotaged Ogboru and the APC during the governorship elections, he undermined the socalled federal might under his charge to fail Ogboru in a deal with PDP. “Omo-Agege is still delusional as the roof of his senatorial and deputy senate president ambition comes down crashing. “He is acting like the proverbial drowning man grabbing at any straw in sight in an attempt to sustain his political life.” Assuring that he will be issued the Certificate of Return as Senator-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Emerhor declared he will represent the senatorial district and “turn the fortunes of Delta APC in preparation for 2023 politics.”

WHO raises alarm over 300 percent rise in measles cases

Massive fire engulfs Notre Dame cathedral in Paris Firefighters have saved the two main towers of Paris’ famed Notre Dame cathedral from a massive blaze threatening the centuries-old building in the heart of the French capital, according to local officials. General Jean-Claude Gallet, head of the Paris fire service, told reporters outside the cathedral late on Monday evening that the “main structure” of the building had been “preserved” amid the inferno, which had erupted just hours earlier. Shortly afterwards, French President Emmanuel Macron said “the worst has been avoided, even if the battle has not been fully won”. Calling the cathedral “the very centre of our lives”, he vowed that France “will rebuild Notre Dame”. “It is what French people expect, because it is what our history deserves, because it is our deep destiny,” he told reporters at the scene. His statement came as Parisians and visitors gathered to watch in horror and disbelief from the nearby banks of the River Seine as emergency workers fought back enormous flames coming out of the iconic Gothic landmark. The firefighters were unable to save the building’s spire, which was toppled by the blaze, and large swathes of the structure’s roof. It was not immediately clear what caused the fire, but Paris prosecutors said they were treating it as an accident. At least one firefighter was seriously injured in the blaze, according to a fire service official cited by Reuters news agency. The cathedral was in the middle of $6.8m renovations, with some sections under scaffolding, while bronze statues were removed last week for works. A church spokesman said the

entire wooden interior of the 12thcentury landmark was burning and likely to be destroyed. Those living close to the cathedral have been evacuated in case of a possible collapse of the building, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said. France’s civil security agency said “all means” except for waterdropping aircraft were deployed to put out the flames. But the defence agency said those were unsuitable for fires like the one at Notre Dame because dumping water on the building could cause the whole structure to collapse. “A terrible fire is under way at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris,” Mayor Anne Hidalgo said earlier on Twitter. “There are a lot of artworks inside ... it’s a real tragedy,” she later told reporters at the scene. Police urged people to avoid the area and facilitate the passage of emergency vehicles. Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler, reporting from Paris, said she saw tears streaming down the face of some onlookers. “The cathedral is a French icon, it is a symbol of Paris all over the world,” she said. “To see it in flames is extremely sad for so many people.” Claire, a 15-year-old onlooker, told Al Jazeera crying: “Notre Dame is the heart of Paris and I came as soon as I heard. This is our heart and it is disappearing in the flames. What do we have left?” Yvette, a French-American student, told Al Jazeera: “I came as soon as I could because I didn’t know how bad the fire was going to be or how much of the structure was still going to be standing, and I wanted to stand witness while it was still here.” Nedjma, an eyewitness in Paris, said she saw the fire on her way home from work.

“As we walked, we could feel ashes on our faces. Everyone was really shocked by this,” she told Al Jazeera. “It’s a huge monument and a huge part of Paris’s history.” Notre Dame is celebrated for its size, antiquity and architectural interest. The cathedral, which is famous for featuring in Victor Hugo’s classic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, attracts millions of tourists every year. It was here that Christian crusaders prayed before going to fight in the Holy Land, where revolutionaries defiled representations of French kings and Napoleon crowned himself emperor in 1804. “It’s a devastating image because Notre Dame, Paris and France play a key role in the history of European Christendom, that is second only to Rome and the Vatican,” Massimo Faggioli, a professor of theology and religious studies at Villanova University, told Al Jazeera. “This is really a fire at the heart of Christianity,” he added. French historian Camille Pascal, meanwhile, told France’s BFM television news channel the blaze marked “the destruction of invaluable heritage”. “It has been 800 years that the Cathedral watches over Paris ... happy and unfortunate events for centuries have been marked by the bells of Notre Dame,” Pascal said. “We can be only horrified by what we see.” CHIOMA SHILOH

Karachi blasted by deadly wind storm Pakistan’s biggest city Karachi was hit by a sudden sandstorm that killed at least three people with strong winds bringing down trees, and causing power outages and flight delays. The visibility dropped to below 500 metres overnight and although things improved after dawn on Monday, strong winds kept blowing under a cloudy sky. Several

buildings were severely damaged. Karachi was not alone, the weather system hit other parts of Pakistan too, bringing dust, wind and rain. Barkhan in Balochistan received its average April rainfall in just two days. A bonus of this weather was the reduction in temperatures. In Sindh province, Chhor had been creeping beyond 42 degrees Celsius but

Monday saw a maximum of 38C. The cause was an active frontal system that had already brought significant rain to Qatar on Saturday, four days of thundery rain to the United Arab Emirates, and desert flooding to Oman on Sunday. The mother of the system, the area of low pressure, was over Iran that later shifted to Afghanistan.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has raised alarm over a 300 percent increase in the case of measles globally in the first quarter of 2019 compared with last year. The statement by the United Nations’ health agency comes as health experts in various parts of the world blame a growing anti-vaccination movement for the rise in outbreaks of the highly contagious but preventable disease. The WHO said on Monday that the early trends for 2019 likely underestimated the severity of the outbreaks since only about one in 10 actual measles cases was reported. “Many countries are in the midst of sizeable measles outbreaks, with all regions of the world experiencing sustained rises in cases,” the WHO said. So far this year, 170 countries have reported 112,163 measles cases to WHO. At this time in 2018, 163 countries had reported 28,124 cases. “Spikes in case numbers have also occurred in countries with high overall vaccination coverage, including the United States,” the WHO said. “The disease has spread fast among clusters of unvaccinated people,” it added. New York City’s mayor declared a public health emergency in parts of Brooklyn last week after a measles outbreak emerged in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, where some had resisted vaccination on religious

grounds. The WHO said that the most dramatic rise in cases - a 700-percent increase compared with last year - has been reported on the African continent, which has weaker vaccination coverage than other regions. Measles - an airborne infection causing fever, coughing and rashes that can be deadly in rare cases - had been officially eliminated in many countries with advanced healthcare systems. But the so-called anti-vax movement - driven by fraudulent claims linking the MMR vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella, and risk of autism in children - has gained traction. Repeated studies - the most recent involving more than 650,000 children monitored for more than a decade have shown that there is no such link. But according to the WHO, global coverage for the first vaccine dose has been “stalled” at 85 percent, while 67 percent of people have received the second dose. Calls have mounted in several countries to make measles vaccinations mandatory, including in Germany. Australia earlier this month launched a major education campaign to encourage residents to get vaccinated. Turning the tide against measles will require “effective public-facing communication and engagement on the critical importance of vaccination, and the dangers of the diseases they prevent”, the WHO said.

Egypt’s parliament to vote on extending Sisi’s rule Egypt’s parliament is set to vote on constitutional amendments including an extension to President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s current four-year term in office. If approved by parliament on Tuesday, the amendments will be put to a public referendum, widely expected later this month, before they go into effect, Ali Abdelaal, the parliament speaker, said on Sunday. Proposed constitutional amendments had previously suggested that Sisi would be allowed to seek two new six-year terms after his current one expires in 2022. But according to a recent draft seen by Reuters news agency, the latest amendments could allow Sisi to stay in power until 2030 by extending his current term by two more years and allowing him to run again in 2024. State television reported parliament’s legislative committee approved the amendments and they were ready to go to the full house for a vote, scheduled for Tuesday. Abdelaal said the changes were the result of civic discussions organised by parliament to hear diverse views on the proposed amendments. Sisi’s supporters dominate the 596-member assembly. The proposals also call for setting up a second parliamentary chamber, the Senate, composed of 180 members and giving the president new powers over appointing judges and the public prosecutor. They also include amending Article 200 of the Constitution to add the military’s duty is to protect “the constitution and democracy and the

fundamental makeup of the country and its civil nature”. Some critics fear those changes will give the military more influence on political life in Egypt. Sisi’s supporters say the changes are necessary to give him more time to complete major development projects and economic reforms. His critics say they concentrate more powers in the hands of a leader accused by rights groups of presiding over a relentless crackdown on freedoms. The development comes eight years since Egypt’s pro-democracy uprising ended Hosni Mubarak’s nearly 30-year rule. Sisi led the 2013 military overthrow of elected president and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi and was elected Egypt’s leader the following year. He has presided over an unprecedented crackdown on dissent and was re-elected last year after all potentially serious challengers were jailed or pressured to exit the presidential race.

AFCON: Mikel Obi demands captaincy for Super Eagles’ return John Mikel Obi wants to be assured of his position as the Super Eagles’ captain as condition for him to return to the senior national football squad. Mikel, who joined English Championship side, Middlesbrough, last January from Chinese Super League side, Tianjin TEDA has not kicked a ball for the Eagles after captaining the national team to a first round exit at the Russia 2018 World Cup. Head coach, Gernot Rohr, has made frantic efforts to manage the agitations that trailed the continued absence of the exChelsea star from the squad which has raised doubts about his commitment. Mikel now wants to be assured of reclaiming the captain’s armband before taking the decision to be part of the squad to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations starting in June in Egypt. Mikel’s demand is coming after the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick, referred to Ahmed Musa as “Captain” at the NFF Awards Night in Eko Hotel held in Lagos on April 1. The Awards gala which had the Super Eagles class of 94 in attendance saw Ahmed Musa voted the Nigeria’s Male Player of 2018 and Pinnick while receiving the award for Musa said, “I want

to say congratulations to my son, my captain; Ahmed Musa.” Guests were visibly left in shock wondering if the Al Nassr forward had officially taken over the captaincy of the Eagles from Mikel Rohr, who it was learnt was making last minute moves to have a private discussion with the Middlesbrough player gave various reasons for Mikel’s selfimposed exile during a parley with the media in Asaba last month. “Obi Mikel is playing again in Middlesbrough for a few weeks and is doing well now. But there is still a little problem with his knee and it was not the moment now to come back for him in these conditions. “They have so many games in Middlesbrough, they are fighting for promotions. He told me that this is not the moment to come back so the question was not there to come back now but if Obi Mikel, is very fit again, if he has the motivation, if he shows that he is better than the other people we have, the door is open for everybody. “I’m not like (Joachim) Löw who announced officially that three of his players are out definitively from the Germany national team, I never say that because you never know what can happen. You can have injuries, you can sometime a

great fitness and performance from the players who you believe are finished. “We are watching and seeing what is happening to see if he can come back. We need experience in our team, we have young players, so the experience of such a player could be interesting.” Meanwhile, the media officer of the Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye, says Mikel has not made such demands since he is still the captain of the team. “Rohr has the final say who leads the team and as far as we know, the coach has not told us that Mikel is no longer the captain of the team. “Even Ahmed Musa, who has been the stand-in captain had always referred to Mikel as the substantive captain of the team. People should not create problem when there is none” Ibitoye warned in emphatic tone. Ibitoye also described as baseless and unfounded insinuations that the backroom staff has a preferred player they are supporting to captain the national team. “That’s absolutely untrue. The backroom staff does not have such powers. We can’t meddle into such issues because it is specifically the responsibility of the coach. We work with any player that has been picked by the technical crew to wear the armband” he added.

FIFA bans disgraced ex-football chief for life FIFA on Monday slapped a lifetime ban on the disgraced former boss of Brazilian football, Jose Maria Marin, months after a US court convicted him of massive corruption. FIFA’s ethics judges found Marin guilty of

bribery and “banned him for life from all footballrelated activities… at both national and international level,” while imposing a fine of 1 million Swiss francs ($1 million), said a statement from world football’s governing body.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah explains goal celebration against Chelsea

Mohamed Salah has defended his celebration after scoring Liverpool’s second goal against Chelsea as an unplanned move for his love for yoga. After Sadio Mane’s opener, Salah beat goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga from 25 yards with a left-footed shot that sealed the Reds’ 2-0 victory at Anfield on Sunday. However, his celebration was different from his trademark moves of kneeling down on the pitch and pointing up at the sky as he stood on a leg with his hands held together. After the match that saw Liverpool climb to the top of the Premier League table, Salah explained the reason behind the move similar to a tree-pose in yoga. “I am a yoga man! I do yoga and it just came into my mind,” Salah told SkySports.

On what inspired him to hit the target from 25 yards, an effort that turned out to be his first from outside of the penalty area in the Premier League since January 2018. He added; “I don’t think. I just feel. Normally I shoot with the inside of my foot. But this one I decided, because it was far, to hit it with power. I was lucky the ball hit the net like that.”

ITTF African Championships: Azeez Solanke, Taiwo Matti claim junior, cadet titles The reign of Egypt in the boys’ singles event came to an end at the weekend after Nigeria claimed the large portion of the gold medals at stake in the events at the just concluded ITTF African Junior and Cadet Championship held in Accra, Ghana. But the consolation for Egypt came in the U-21 boys singles as Mahmoud Helmy beat Nigeria’s Augustine Emmanuel 4-1 to the title. But the star attraction for Nigeria were Azeez Solanke and Taiwo Matti who claimed the gold medals in the junior and cadet singles of the competition at the expense of Egypt who have dominated the division for years. Solanke won both the junior boys’ singles title and partnering Jamiu Ayanwale to strike gold in the junior boys’ doubles. In both events played on the final day, Solanke ended Egyptian hopes. In the junior boys’ singles event, after having accounted for Abdelraham Dendan at the quarter-final stage, a contest in which the Egyptian had to eventually withdraw owing to injury (115, 10-12, 11-7, 11-6, ret), he beat Ahmed ElBorhamy (11-5, 11-8, 11-9, 11-8) and Marwan Abdelwahab (13-11, 4-11, 10-12, 11-5, 13-11, 11-6) to secure the title. Defeat for Marwan Abdelwahab who, in the later rounds, had ousted Nigeria’s Abayomi Animasahun (11-9, 9-11, 11-5, 11-5,

11-8) and Tunisia’s Aboubaker Bourass (11-8, 11-8, 11-3, 11-7), in the junior boys’ doubles final partnering colleague Gawad El-Herazy, it was also defeat. They suffered at the hands of Jamiu Ayanwale and Solanke (11-8, 11-7, 11-6). The top step of the podium for Ayanwale, in the cadet boys’ singles event, after accounting for Tunisia’s Habib Ameur (11-6, 11-6, 8-11, 11-5, 11-7), it was the second step. He was beaten in the final by compatriot Taiwo Mati (11-8, 11-4, 11-9, 11-8). Impressively, at the semi-final stage, Taiwo Mati had ousted Egypt’s Mohamed Sameh (11-6, 11-3, 11-5, 11-4). Success for Solanke and Mati on the concluding day of play and it was more success; earlier both had been members of the successful U-21 men’s team, in addition Solanke had secured the top prize in the junior boys’ team event, Mati had struck cadet boys’ team gold.
