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

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

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

Enacting a motion raised via issue of pressing national importance 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 these obligations.

The Senate says that the DSS went beyond its limit when it supposedly usurped the powers of the National Judicial naija news 24 Council (NJC) which has the statutory powers of managing matters of misconduct and indiscipline against judicial officers.

The upper chamber noted the action of naija news breaking at nighttime naija 247 news into the residences of judicial officers with chisel and hammer has worsened the picture of Nigeria. It pointed out that turning the law down to fight corruption is an action of corruption alone.

Opinion on the prayers of the motion, Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, said The National Assembly has been playing its part to support the government. We must ensure that this fight is within the rule of law, any action of anti-corruption that goes against the rule of law doesn't help the corruption fight. That's why this activity is condemned by the Senate and was seen in this style. 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 will be to give the DSS and the AGF an opportunity to defend the actions.

Considering a matter of urgent national significance increased by Kingsley Chinda, the lawmakers also resolved to set up an ad hoc committee to investigate all cases of invasion of property and arrest of individuals 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 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 Alabi Mojeed Olujinmi fought in vain to prevent his co-workers.

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

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

Gowon warned the scenario, if mishandled, could be a threat to democracy. He advised government to do something to make sure it doesn't do further harm.

The opinion was made by the elder statesman 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's a serious thing that judges could be detained. Legally, you cannot merely detain anybody outside the law, there should have been a suitable method of doing it."

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent the names of Justices Sidi Dauda Bage from Nasarawa State and Paul Adamu Galinje as justices of the Supreme Court 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 stated that the 8th Senate would work to meet a 2016 deadline for the passage of all the 11 economical-priority Bills that it has scheduled to handle the economic recession.

A press statement issued from the 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 first of the year, the Senate has worked to fast-track the over 40 precedence bills advocated by the National Assembly Business Environment Roundtable (NASSBER), an initiative where the Nigerian Economic Summit Group is a significant partner.

The Senate President also said that among the strategies that the Senate has to ensure the passing of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) in this government, would be to break the Bill into distinct sections for easier passing. The Senate President emphasised that with the passage of the PIB, Nigeria would generate more sales from petroleum — setting it on course to come out of the economic recession.

" " Saraki said By focusing more out consequences, rather than processes, "The Nigerian Senate has not been unable to pass 20 Bills for Final Reading in two weeks."

Speaking on the the Senate President lauded the organisers for keying into the Senate’s strategy for producing more revenue from homegrown businesses.

"Earlier this season, when in the Senate we started the ‘Made in Nigeria’ campaign, we understood how important it was, but we failed to 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's our hope that Nigerian companies can start to reap the benefits of the finished N2 trillion naira in government expense in the 2016 budget, " he continued , that we can reduce the demand on foreign exchange while simultaneously boosting our IGR."

At a question and answer segment of the dialouge, Saraki also guaranteed that the Senate would analyze Nigeria’s multiple taxation laws of companies, when it considers the 2017 Appropriation Bill — stating that it was time that Nigeria enhanced its sales producing systems.

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

Why fixed telephony services are falling in Nigeria

Restoring fixed telephony services in the state remains not easy going by the present challenges in the sub-sector. The fixed telephony services marketplace comprises institutions providing voice services through physical media such as wire or fibre optic cable in the place of wireless transmission. These services may also be known as landline or dedicated line services.

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

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

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

Statistics in the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) show that 21st Century has the largest market share with 83 per cent penetration. Another 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 state, the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, stressed the need for the nation to revitalise the service, saying that it should be a complementary telecommunication service to cellular telephony.

Danbatta attributed the continuing decline of fixed line telephony on complete negligence by the telecoms operators and subscribers. He observed that before the arrival 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 cellular digital telephony.

In developed countries of the world, side runs by side with fixed line telephony and I see no motive Nigerians had to dump fixed line for cellular telephony."

Danbatta alleged that many times, the commission had invited operators, especially those now offering the service on how it can be enhanced in the country for a meeting, but none of them showed up. "We have invited the companies to NCC to discuss how we can animate the sub-sector, but that invitation is still waiting to be honoured by them," he said.

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

iframe width="640" height="360" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen style="float:right;padding:10px 0px 10px 10px;border:0px;">According to him, it is early for Nigeria to revive the sub-sector. This is an invitation to potential investors that set telephony still has viable possibilities of thriving in Nigeria. We now have the market. So as numerous investors which can be ready, the NCC is open for conversation and partnership."

But among the operators, who talked to The Guardian said they failed to receive any letter of invitation from NCC for talk on reviving fixed telephony in the country.

The landline may not really boom again, even with new policies because of bureaucratic bottlenecks that are www.naija news com several, especially from state governments, in regards to getting the right of way acceptance. They see telecoms operators as ‘cash cow’, so they where's the money now and are ready to charge us anyway?"

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

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

The Guardian findings demonstrated that in other parts of Africa, such as for instance Kenya and South Africa, where adoptions have already been between high and low rates, one another is engaging to animate it while Nigeria struggles to remain afloat.
