The Federal Government yesterday declared that it sets world-wide issues including climate change, digital divide, cyber-insecurity and crisis telecommunications at high level of precedence in its change agenda, strategies and work programmes.

Secretary to Government of the Federation Babachir David Lawal said this yesterday at Innovation Africa Digital Summit 2016 (IAD) in Abuja.

He observed that in this age of e-government and digital inclusion, the present management is working towards a more affiliated government and a digital Nigerian society

Lawal noted that with the dwindling earnings in the oil and gas sector, the Federal Government has realized more than ever before that telecoms and the ICT sectors are amongst the main drivers for the social and economic development of Naija and playan important role in improving accessibility to basic services in all sectors of our national life.

He observed that with a sizeable percent of the Nigerias people having access to mobile cellular services, the growing and sustained growth in Internet usage and broadband deployment, the authorities through the Ministry of Communications and its various CLEVER initiatives are focused on leveraging on ICTs to create an inclusive economy.

The SGF pointed out that the international pursuit for ICT for growth is tremendous to both developed and developing countries because ICT skills are crucial to the success of enhancing national growth in a globalised age.

In this aspect, authorities are focused on creating opportunities for citizenship involvement in ICT training, knowledge and skills acquisition, and general use and usage of ICT tools to solve problems, encourage their wellbeing and improve national growth.

He said, I will be aware that Galaxy Backbone Ltd, created in 2006 as a Government owned company and charged to provide connectivity and other Information and Communication Technology infrastructure to Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of Authorities now has up to 350MDAs linked to its 1-GOV.Net in over 4000 office locations nationally making it the biggest single network ever developed in the public sector in Africa.

Against the backdrop of President Muhamadu Buharis recent trip to China, and the $6 billion deal struck between both countries, an octogenarian, Demas Nwoko, has stressed the importance of Nigeria to develop homegrown technology depending on its culture.

Nwoko, who made the demand, within an exclusive interview at his Idumuje state dwelling in Delta State, cautioned the deal with China could open the countrys entire market to Chinese products, thus stunting creativity and local creation attempts.

The octogenarian, who is also an architect, said Naijas politics and leadership were not going in the correct way, as there was no protection for the few local companies who are braving the chances to excel.

According to him, Its a combination of the great and the poor. It demonstrates our politics is not mature, and our leadership, not moving in a way that would help the individuals

He noted that under normal setting, outsiders protect their own culture, in such a way that folks dont intrude to soil it. He stressed the greatest way to grow would be to develop technology, along the line of ones comparative edge.

The architect said improvement couldnt be attained by duplicating others culture or technology, as the case may be. Tracing the infrastructure decay in the state to our approach to increase, Nwoko gave the example of local furniture makers around the country, who were shutting down companies, as an outcome of poor Chinese and American products that have flooded the local markets.

He blamed policymakers for a badly conceived educational doctrine that will not take into account Naijas diverse cultures for the present malaise.

Nwoko said he is making doors locally, before the intrusion of Chinese doors into the markets; a scenario that controls our own economic development in door building.

There were individuals who were building doors in Lagos and everywhere, who've all closed down, because American and Chinese furniture and doors took over the marketplaces.

The Paris-trained architect recalled how he was denied the chance to to design and build the National Theatre, Lagos, lamenting the disaster the cultural edifice is becoming ever since.

He recalled that he'd proposed multi-sites or theatres in parts of Lagos, as against a single edifice, so as to open up distinct neighbourhoods to the entertainment offerings that FESTAC 77 supplied.

He regretted that that political conclusions negated against the fruition of that solid plan, noting that it would have resulted in ripple effects on the states cultural creations ever since.

According to him, You can not have an audience of 5,000; in the way the theater was assembled. Actually, that building is a sports hall imported from Bulgaria. So, aside from the chief bowl being 5,000, they attached the theater halls, which were not properly designed for those actions.

He added that even the master plan he had for FESTAC, had not been allowed to work, because of jaundiced government policies. Nwoko explained that by his proposition, there would have been at least five theatres or places in Lagos, Apapa, Isolo, Yaba, Victoria Island, etc, with each venue having the capacity of 1,000 1,500 individuals.

Boko Haram fighters assaulted Nigerian troops early on Monday, the army said, after two suspected suicide bombers were shot dead near military positions.

Military spokesman Sani Usman said in a brief e-mailed statement: Boko Haram terrorists assault troops of 113 Battalion at Kareto, northern Borno state.

The troops happen to be fighting the insurgents since the early hours of today.

A soldier with the regiment told AFP the troops were ordered to town of Damasak near the border with Niger and took up position in Kareto, some 38 kilometres (24 miles) away.

Today at about 6:30 am (0530 GMT), two suicide bombers approached us and we shot at them and they exploded, he said.

The moment the explosives went off, there were batteries of heavy artillery fired by Boko Haram, who came in large numbers with heavy weapons.

We took up position in our trenches and fired back but they kept firing RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades), which we didnt have.

We lost some men, I dont know how many, and many others were injured. Some of us fled in disarray. We realised that we were outnumbered and outgunned.

The troops pulled away to Jeyimolo hamlet and a fighter jet was deployed to Kareto while a search was launched for the dead and missing, he added.

An area chief supported the attack but said additional details were still sketchy.

President Muhammadu Buhari said in December the Islamist militants was weakened to the extent they could no longer mount conventional attacks against the military.

But the latest news on naija strike again underlines the consistent menace posed by the Islamic State group affiliate, particularly in hard-to-reach rural areas.

The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), said on Monday that the bureau would reinforce partnership between Naija and the Republic of Korea to enrich the maritime business.

The Head, Public Relations Section in NIMASA, Hajia Lami Tumaka, said this in a statement in Lagos, a copy which was made accessible to the http://naija news today Agency of naija (NAN) in Lagos.

Peterside said the bureau was committed toward tackling the menace of piracy and other kinds of crimes at sea.

Naija is poised to tackle the threat of piracy and we've recorded great successes previously three months.

The statement said that the Director-General of NIMASA, Dr Dakuku Peterside, stressed the need to improve the maritime business, while receiving the Korean Consul-General to Naija, Mr Lee Younghoan, at the agencys headquarters.

According to him, the two nations stand to derive mutual benefits from such association.

Peterside recognised the tactical position of Korea as an excellent ship building state.

He counseled the Consul-General on the importance of qualified Nigerian seafarers to be set on-board Korean vessels operating in Nigerian maritime realm.

The NIMASA leader said that Naija had a pool of qualified seafarers and other competent marine personnel, who could adequately serve the international marine sector.

Our vision will be to have a safe and bonded ocean with zero piracy in the following one year, the director general said.

Younghoan, commended NIMASA for its efforts in fighting piracy on the nations waterways.

The consul general appealed for more surveillance and security in safeguarding lives and property on the countries waterways.

NAN reports that Peterside, at a recent forum, expressed the want of the bureau to work with other stakeholders and expedite action on the passage of the Anti-Piracy and Other related Crimes at Sea into law.

He assured the director general of the readiness of the Korean Authorities to support Naija in the area of maritime safety and protection.

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has called on Nigerians to have a change in approach and orientation for the state to make progress even as the nation is passing through challenging times.

Dogara said if Nigeria is to observe major progress in quality of leadership and governance, the citizens must change their ways of life as leaders are recruited from among them.

The Speaker, who made the call at the weekend during a thanksgiving service organised by a part of the parliament, Jagaba Adams Jagaba at ECWA Church, Chigwa, Kaduna State, based on a statement issued by his spokesman, Turaki Hassan, said that while Nigerians expect leaders to live higher standards of life as role models, the followers must also understand that leaders are recruited from among them.

He, therefore, charged Nigerians to, as a matter of importance, reveal higher standards of runs even as they expect same from their leaders.

There is certainly always expectations from citizens for leaders to show a higher standard of behaviour. Clearly, it's great that those that call themselves leaders should always aspire to keep higher standards.

But what is wrong with the narrative, particularly in Naija, is that in the majority of instances, citizens expect that only leaders must live above board. This state can only just make progress if all the citizens and leaders resolve that in their daily undertakings, they are going to preserve the greatest of standards.

Because if you expect merely leaders to do the right thing, the direction recruitment process is such that leaders constantly emerge in the people.

Dogara admonished politicians to put their faith in God because power comes from God, victory comes from God, no one, regardless of how powerful he or she's, can give you power.

But in his testimony, Jagaba urged Nigerians to eschew religious and ethnic sentiments, which he said, have split the country for decades.

He said the electorate should rather lay emphasis on individual character and never political party affiliation, saying that he has forgiven all those who plotted evil against him in the 2015 general elections.

In his sermon, ECWA President, Revd (Dr.) Jeremiah Gado, said by design, God created and saved mankind to live a life of gratitude, service, praise and worship.
