33.7m yet to access telecoms services in Nigeria


Although current data from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) revealed that Nigeria has crossed the 100 per cent teledensity mark having nicked 106 per cent, a brand new information has, however, emerged that some 33.7 million individuals were still either unserved or underserved with telecommunications services in the country.

Executive Vice Chairman (EVC) of the Nigerian Communications (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta, made the disclosure yesterday in Lagos at the Universal Service Provision Fund (USPF)-organised ‘Focused Business Stakeholders’ Newsgroup and Hackathon Award’ with the theme "Universal Access: Eliminating The Inclusion Obstacles."

The EVC said attempts were being made to bridge the gap. According to him, the function population in Nigeria continues to be reduced from 36.8 million (24.5 per cent) in 2013 to 33.7 million (22.5 per cent) in 2015 based on the Accessibility Gap study, using the 150 million residents benchmark."With effective partnerships, we can attain more in the forthcoming years," Danbatta stressed.

To the NCC boss, the USPF will be playing with important role in reaching four of the eight-point plan towards repositioning the telecommunications sector of the commission.

The EVC said would play important role in facilitating broadband penetration, improving quality of service; enhancing strategic cooperation and partnerships in addition to promoting ICT innovations and investment opportunities.

He stressed the fact that stakeholders must work together to iron out thorny issues bedevilling the growth of the sector. Based on Danbatta, who said the nation’s parlous state of infrastructure had limited its development, however, noted that Nigeria ranked 134 of the 144 nations with readied infrastructure for growth, adding "therefore all hands must be on deck to improve on the state of our infrastructure if we must compete favourably nicely."

The EVC appealed to the Federal Government to review its fiscal and monetary policies, particularly as it relates to foreign exchange acquisition.

According to him, operators were finding it difficult to obtain foreign exchange for his or her operations. In his comment, USPF Secretary, Ayuba Shuaibu, said the initiative was borne from the conviction to promote widespread access to telecommunications services.




Senate tasks NSCDC on unity among Nigerians

Chairman, ‎Senate Committee on National Character, Senator Tijjani Kaura, has called on the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSDC), to concentrate on ensuring unity among Nigerians in the discharge of its constitutional duties.

Kaura revealed this at the weekend in Abuja‎ when the committee paid a visit to the headquarters of the NSCDC included in its planned supervision function of some government agencies.

According to him, given Nigeria’s diversity as a heterogeneous society, it's imperative for NSCDC to ensure equal treatment of Nigerians regardless of what region they come from.



The lawmaker encouraged NSCDC to always conform to the federal character principle in recruitment exercises and deployment of staff, stressing the significance of it should be done with due consideration and fairness.

Kaura said: "The unity of this country is paramount, the way this country was amalgamated, and the diversity in culture and people makes it critical for all Nigerians to be united and handled equally.

We decided to supervision the Commission to ensure that it lives with the national character principle through equity and justice.

"This is not an organisation where national cake is spread for eating, rather it is one where the national cake is baked by ensuring equality and fairness.



On the issue of deployment, Senator Kaura called on NSCDC to "ensure that each state is fairly given its responsibility and share in giving towards the promotion of the nation."He charged the Commandant-General to work assiduously towards making the NSCDC greater than it is currently.

Muhammadu said the move became imperative to ensure that the number of policemen in the various states represents and meets the demand of the federal character principle as provided by the 1999 Constitution as amended.


Forex shortage bringing best out of Nigerians, says CBN

The present scarcity of foreign exchange confronting the nation was referred to as a good development for the Nigerian market as local production of various goods that were essential is being given top priority with favorable outcomes.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, who reiterated the affirmation during the assessment tour of the farmlands cultivated under its anchor borrowers programme in Kebbi State at the weekend, said that agriculture is the bedrock of genuine economic growth of any country and that Nigeria couldn't be an exception.



He said the farmers anticipate a bumper crop while admitting the pivotal roles of the CBN and the state government in supply of fertilisers, irrigation equipment and loans.

Emefiele, who commended farmers and the Kebbi State authorities because of their determination and commitment in the scheme, noted that with the degree of success attained in the pilot project in the state, in addition to the advancement at Sunti Golden Sugar Estate in Niger, it really is now a reality that the country can produce enough to feed itself and even export in no distant future.

Furthermore, Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, in his evaluation of the programme in the rural areas seen by the team, said with Kebbi State alone targeting one million tonnes of rice out of the projected seven million tonnes needed by the entire nation, self sufficiency in rice production is very much at vision by the time other 12 states identified as rice producing belts pick their produce.

For reinventing agricultural practice into profitable business venture while commending the efforts of the CBN, the minister stated that rural areas remain the driver for sustainable economic development.




Nigerians support authorities’s desire for a realistic budget


"It's evident that there is trust in government now and, Nigeria’s persona has greatly improved with an elevated interest by foreign investors to put money into the nation, before the international community.

Every state is getting excited about doing business because we have a president who's incorruptible, dedicated, transparent and trusted and the whole international community" he said.

The party scribe said Nigerian’s belief in the APC authorities was further demonstrated by the big turnout of voters in the Saturday by- election in Yobe.

"The substantial turnout in yesterday’s election and APC’s triumph at the polls, has consolidated the folks’s beliefs in President Buhari and the party to enhance their lives.

"In spite of the hardships suffered by the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), they came out massively to elect APC as a result of their strong beliefs in the party and the leadership," he said.

The secretary commended for supporting the security forces in the battle against insurgency, and that the protection scenario in the North East had improved appreciably President Buhari,.


Saraki: Nigerians split over calls for his resignation

With no signs of subsiding, arguments for and against the resignation of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, are growing louder, with more Nigerians coming out to take sides on the issue that is contentious.

Several efforts by the Senate President to stop the trial and legal brick walls have encountered with , even as more allegations of massive corruption continue to emerge.

Warning that APC’s grouse with the Senate President has the ability to ruin the party, Ikpo said: " I will not ask him to submit to the wishes of individuals who need to persecute him. I 'll tell him to keep fighting. He's innocent. Some of his partners said that he has a good case as regards what they're accusing him of. We should view and see when he begins his defence.

Tinubu’s error should not be corrected by "The CCT with Saraki. The CCT acknowledged it made blunders. If your mistake was made in the case of Senator Bola Tinubu, should at this point you correct it with Saraki? It isn't appropriate. They should have continued with the same blunder. APC is ruining itself by toying with the excellent chance it's. Things are not going well for them. Things are bad in the nation for everybody. When there is an election today, nobody will vote for them."

On his part, Francis Okpozo (Delta South) also advocated Saraki to "stay until the outcome of the case." When he has innocent he described as early calls for the Senate leader’s resignation. "There is no way he can be forced out, and we shouldn't pre empt the court’s decision," he included.

He said: "Saraki cannot be sitting as head of the legislature, presiding over activities one way or the other, have similar cases. Morally speaking, there's no reason for him to continue to hang on to power.

"A precedence continues to be set in this kind of situation. Evans Enwerem was Senate President, Chuba Okadigbo was Senate President, along with Adolphus Wabara; they had www.naijalatest news.com different cases that touched on morality while their trial lasted and they all quit their positions. When his trial is successfully gone through by him he can always reclaim his standing. I usually do not see it as a do or die thing. I believe it really is even in his interest that he doesn't influence the process of the trial using his position."

Former Chief Whip of the Senate and PDP chieftain, Roland Owie opposed calls for Saraki’s resignation, saying the Senate President’s ordeal is a clear case of persecution.



He said: "Saraki was governor from 2003 to 2011, elected in 2011 to the Senate, and re elected in 2015. What Nigerians have to ask the CCT is: was the CCT in June 2015, when Saraki became the Senate President and detention between 2003?



He should have resigned and even resign from the political party or be forced to step down from the position by the party. I don't think I can find words that are better for what the senators are doing by following him to the trial, than say it really is a show of shame."

From Ilorin, dwelling of Yusuf Maja, APC chieftains, Ishola Balogun Fulani, Chief Wole Oke, and the Senate President encouraged Saraki to continue mentioning his innocence until convicted.

Period! A Benin parable says, ‘a kid who says his mom WOn't sleep wo’t sleep either’. He mustn't step down until its full cycle runs to the Supreme Court since those fighting Saraki are not just happy that he's Senate President.

"Agents of darkness did it to Senator Adolphus Wabara and late Senator Chuba Okadigbo. And at the end of the day, when they got victory it was not too early to return as Senate Presidents. Saraki do’t resign until after the Supreme Court judgment!"

Concurring that the better option could have now been resignation, the Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Jerry Obasi, thinks this is no longer tenable because according to him, the court has behaved like an interested party, going by alleged improper remarks by the trial judge.

Until the issue is sorted out In sophisticated societies, he should have stop. But as it is, now, I will say continue to remain in office or the onus lies on him to step down. That is because you'll find specific interests that need to ensure he leaves office at all cost. Take a look at the outburst from the court, which will be a clear indicator that it has an interest it really is protecting.

"I consider whatever is great, if we must safeguard it and it is a trial on our democracy should be done to make it work for us. I'd like to say that the issue is being seen by already many as a controversial one. And that is why you cannot expressly request the Senate President to step down and face his trial, Obasi was said by ".

On moral reasons, notable attorney, also in Cross River State, Mr. Etim Inyang, believes Saraki should step aside, as he has the weight of going to the tribunal day-to-day. He, however, included that there isn't any legal assumption to justify a resignation because the accused is presumed innocent. "It is only when the court makes a pronouncement from the tribunal, rather than even a pronouncement.

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Umar Na’Abba, described calls as ill conceived, stressing that the leader continues to be innocent.

According to him, "those calling for his resignation are simply exercising their constitutional rights. If you say he should step down, what if he finally wins the case at the CCT?

For Rivers State APC spokesman, Mr. Chris Finebone, however, the fall of the Senate President is only a matter of time, and his ordeal is self-inflicted.

"I am sure that everybody understands what played out, right from the very moment the National Assembly was inaugurated, and especially the way the APC attempted to take the interest of everybody. But in a twist of fate, it seemed some men let their own personal interest to supersede that of the party. That's really put the party in risk. We still feel bitter the inordinate ambition of today's Senate President has set a lot of stumbling block on the path of the Presidency and the party," he said.

Based on Mohammed I 'm not saying he is not innocent, but as a senator, but as the Senate President, he shouldn't step down with quasi-criminal charges against him. I've seen sycophants at the office. Because of what they think they are getting from the catastrophe, they are not telling him the truth. It is not morally sound for the Amount Three citizen of this country to be put in the pier regular."

Former senator, Domingo Obende (APC), nevertheless, called for caution on the part of the party’s leaders and President Buhari.

Obende, who represented Edo North between 2015 and 2012, said The dilemma is already in court. The attorneys will have to look at it.‎ I 'm of the view the party is supreme in everything, but they must sit down together, the leaders of the party and the parties, and let there be serious discussions. And if there will be a soft landing, let it www.naija news..com be. But whatever the party decides, that is what's going to take pre-eminence."
