Senate moves to amend DSS Act, Representatives summon AGF, Daura


As more criticisms trail the arrest of some judges, the Senate has resolved to amend the laws that create some security outfits in the state, including the Department of State Services (DSS).

The Senate yesterday condemned what it called "the draconian fashion" in which the DSS invaded the residences of the judges last Saturday and detained them,.

Enacting a motion raised via issue of pressing national significance by Joshua Ledani (PDP, Gombe State), the Senate encouraged President Muhammadu Buhari to call all security agencies to order to observe the rule of law in the discharge of their obligations.

The Senate says that the DSS went beyond its bounds when it supposedly usurped the powers of the National Judicial Council (NJC) which has the statutory powers of handling matters of misconduct and indiscipline against judicial officers.

The upper chamber noted that the action of naija breaking news latest into the homes of judicial officers at night with chisel and hammer has worsened the picture of Nigeria. It pointed out that turning the law upside down to fight corruption is an act of corruption in itself.

Ruling on the prayers of the motion, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, Senate President, said: " The National Assembly has been playing its role to support the government. We must ensure this fight is within the rule of law, any act of anti-corruption that goes against the rule of law will not help the corruption fight. That's the reason this activity is condemned by the Senate and has been seen in this way. All agencies of authorities must ensure that they act within the rule of law

In the House of Representatives yesterday, the lawmakers agreed to invite the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister for Justice, Abubakar Malami and the Director General of DSS, Lawal Musa Daura over the arrest of the judges. The summons would be to give a chance to defend the actions to the AGF and the DSS.

Contemplating a matter of pressing national significance increased by Kingsley Chinda, the lawmakers also resolved to set up an ad hoc committee to investigate all instances of invasion of property and arrest of persons for reasons outside the general duties of the DSS as prescribed by the National Securities Act, since May 29, 2013 and report back to members within six weeks.

But Alabi Mojeed Olujinmi fought in vain to prevent his colleagues from acting on the matter, claiming that based on the principle of separation of powers, the security agency is at liberty to interrogate anyone accused of corrupt practices.

Amid protests by some members against the consideration and adoption of the issue, it was subjected by Speaker of the House Yakubu Dogara to voice vote, in which those who favoured the consideration carried the day.

Also yesterday, former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon expressed concern over the arrest of the supposedly corrupt judges and urged the government to give directives to the operatives not to go outside the laws of the land.

Gowon warned the situation, if mishandled, could be a danger to democracy. He counseled government to take action to make sure that it does not do additional damage.

The elder statesman made the remark in Abuja while briefing journalists on the forthcoming 20th anniversary of the Nigeria Prays billed at the National Christian Centre, Abuja for October 15, 2016.

Gowon said: "It is a serious matter that judges news naija breaking could be arrested. Legally, you CAn't just arrest anybody outside what the law states, there should have been a proper method of doing it."

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent the names of Justices Sidi Dauda Bage from Nasarawa State and Paul Adamu Galinje from Taraba State to the Senate for confirmation.

11 economical recession bills will be passed by end of 2016, says Saraki


President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday said that the 8th Senate would work to match a 2016 deadline for the passage of all the 11 economical-priority Bills that it has scheduled to undertake the economic downturn.

A press statement issued from your media office of the Senate President stated that at a dialogue at the 22nd Edition of the Nigerian Economic Summit in Abuja, Saraki said since the beginning of the year, the Senate has worked to fast-track the over 40 priority bills advocated by the National Assembly Business Environment Roundtable (NASSBER), an initiative when the Nigerian Economic Summit Group is a significant partner.

The Senate President also said that one of the plans that the Senate has to ensure the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) in this administration, is always to break the Bill into distinct sections for easier passage. The Senate President emphasised that Nigeria would create more revenue from oil — putting it on track to come out of the economical downturn.

" By focusing more out consequences, rather than procedures," Saraki said, "The Nigerian Senate has been able to pass 20 Bills for Final Reading in two weeks."

Talking on the ‘Made in Nigeria’ theme of the summit, the Senate President lauded the organisers for keying into the Senate’s plan for producing more sales from homegrown businesses.

"Before this season, when in the Senate we began the ‘Made in Nigeria’ campaign, we knew how significant it was, but even we did not foresee how much it would go he said. "To boost the patronage of our national companies, the Senate has gone as far as amending the procurement act to advocate departments, government ministries and bureaus to key into this initiative."

"It is our expectation that Nigerian businesses can begin to benefit from the finished N2 trillion naira in government cost in the 2016 budget, " he continued , "So that we can reduce the demand while simultaneously boosting our IGR."

At a question and answer section of the dialouge, Saraki also promised the Senate would examine Nigeria’s multiple taxation laws of businesses, when it considers the 2017 Appropriation Bill — stating that it was time that Nigeria improved its earnings producing systems.

"What we should do will be to improve our corporate taxation system he said, "The Senate will be examining the different alternatives for achieving this in the 2017 budget cycle so that we can strengthen the tax value chain. We will also review other places like the customs duties."

Why set telephony services are declining in Nigeria


Restoring fixed telephony services in the nation remains not easy going by the present challenges in the sub-sector. The fixed telephony services marketplace comprises institutions supplying voice services through physical media for example wire or fibre optic cable rather than wireless transmission. These services are also referred to as landline or dedicated line services.

Truly, fixed telephony services in Nigeria in the last 10 years have kept up a profile that was down, going as at August 2016. active from about five million to 349,185 with just 161,742 lines remaining

But while there are challenges, particularly with the dominance of the Global System for Mobile (GSM) Communication, The Guardian investigations show that four telecommunications companies are currently keeping the operations living, though on a low key.

But attempts by the operators, including MTN, Globacom, IpNX and 21st Century, have just managed to put fixed telephony penetration at 0.1 per cent in the state. The GSM technology has 99.5 per cent, while the Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) operation has 0.4 per cent.

Figures from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) show that 21st Century has the biggest market share with 83 per cent penetration. One other three operators are in a far space, with Globacom in the second position having nine per cent market share, followed by MTN with six per cent and ipNX services with two per cent.

Worried about the continued decline of fixed line subscription in the nation, the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, stressed the need for the country to revitalise the service, saying that it should be a complementary telecommunication service to cellular telephony.

Danbatta blamed the ongoing decline of fixed line telephony on absolute negligence by the telecoms operators and subscribers. He noted that before the advent of digital technology in 2001, which ushered in GSM, Nigerians were using fixed line telephony, whose operator was majorly the Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL), but "it has suddenly been disregarded for mobile digital telephony.

"In developed nations of the world, cellular telephony runs side by side with fixed line telephony and I see no reason Nigerians had to drop fixed line for mobile telephony."

Danbatta alleged that operators had been invited by the commission, many times, especially those Nigeria currently offering the service for a meeting on how it can be enhanced in the country, but none of them showed up. "we've encouraged the companies to NCC to discuss how we can restore the sub-sector, but that invitation remains waiting to be honoured by them," he stated.

According to him, the Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development put fixed line penetration rate at 0.01 per cent in Nigeria, whereas other countries have better and deeper penetration. He clarified that when the digital technology arrived, their analogue technology was never dropped by most states, but got both to run side by side. "But we found that it was a different ball game in Nigeria."

According to him, it's not late for Nigeria to restore the sub-sector. "This is an invitation to prospective investors that set telephony still has viable chances of prospering in Nigeria. We have the marketplace. So as many investors that are ready, the NCC is open for partnership and discussion."

But one of the operators, who spoke to The Guardian said on reviving fixed telephony in the state they didn't receive any letter of invitation from NCC for discussion.

"The landline may not really thrive again, even with new policies because of bureaucratic bottlenecks that are several, notably from state governments, as it pertains to getting the right of way acceptance. They see telecoms operators as ‘cash cow’, so they're ready to bill us anyway and where's the money now?"

Buttressing the need to keep lines that were fixed afloat in the state, Lanre Kolade, the Managing Director of Vodacom, said the development of fixed broadband infrastructure stayed significant, despite the predominance of its mobile counterpart.

"Telecoms operators will remain the chief investors in fiber networks to expand high speed fixed broadband services to enterprise customers and suburban neighbourhoods and affluent urban ," he stated.

The Guardian findings revealed that in other areas of Africa, such as Kenya and South Africa, where adoptions have been between high and low rates, one another is engaging to renovate it while naijanews Nigeria fights to stay afloat.
