The Government yesterday declared that it puts world-wide problems such as climate change, digital divide, cyber-insecurity and emergency telecommunications at higher level of priority in its change plan, strategies and work programmes.

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

He noted that in this era of e-government and digital inclusion, the current administration is working towards a more affiliated authorities and a digital Nigerian society

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

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

Lawal noted that with the dwindling revenue in the gas and oil sector, the Federal Government has recognized 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 essential role in enhancing access to fundamental services in all sectors of our national life.

He found that with a sizeable percent of the Naijas people having access to mobile cellular services, the rising and continual growth in Internet usage and broadband deployment, the government through the Ministry of Communications and its various INTELLIGENT initiatives are focused on leveraging on ICTs to create an inclusive economy.

He said, I'm aware that Galaxy Backbone Ltd, established in 2006 as a Government owned company and charged to deliver connectivity and other Information and Communication Technology infrastructure to Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of Government currently has up to 350MDAs joined 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 the two nations, an octogenarian, Demas Nwoko, has stressed the need for Nigeria to develop homegrown technology according to its culture.

Nwoko, who made the demand, in an exclusive interview at his Idumuje state house in Delta State, warned the deal with China could open the countrys entire market to Chinese products, therefore stunting imagination and local creation efforts.

The octogenarian, who's also an architect, said Naijas politics and leadership weren't moving in the right direction, as there was no protection for the few local companies who are enduring the odds to excel.

According to him, Its a blend of the good and the bad. It demonstrates that our politics just isn't mature, and our leadership, not proceeding in a way that would help the individuals

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

The architect said improvement couldnt be reached by duplicating others culture or technology, as the case may be. Tracing the infrastructure decay in the country to our attitude to increase, Nwoko gave the instance of local furniture makers around the nation, who were shutting down businesses, as a result of poor Chinese and American products that have flooded the local markets.

He blamed policymakers for a poorly conceived educational doctrine that doesn't take into account Nigerias varied cultures for the present malaise.

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

There were folks who were building doors in Lagos and everywhere, that have all closed down, because American and Chinese furniture and doors took over the markets.

The Paris-trained architect remembered how he was refused the opportunity to design and construct the National Theatre, Lagos, lamenting the disaster the cultural edifice is becoming ever since.

He remembered that he had proposed multi-venues 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 provided.

He regretted that that political decisions negated against the fruition of that strong strategy, noting that it would have resulted in ripple effects on the countries cultural productions ever since.

According to him, You cannot have an audience of 5,000; in the manner the theatre was built. In reality, that building is a sports hall imported from Bulgaria. So, besides the chief bowl being 5,000, they attached the theater halls, which weren't correctly designed for those tasks.

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

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 emailed statement: Boko Haram terrorists attack troops of 113 Battalion at Kareto, northern Borno state.

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

The troops have now been battling the insurgents since the early hours of today.

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

As soon as the explosives went off, there were barrages 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 village and a fighter jet was deployed to Kareto while a search was launched for the dead and missing, he added.

A local 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 strikes against the military.

But the latest strike again underlines the consistent danger presented by the Islamic State group affiliate, especially in hard-to-reach rural areas.

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

The Head, Public Relations Department in NIMASA, Hajia Lami Tumaka, said this in a statement in Lagos, a copy which was made available to the News Agency of Naija (NAN) in Lagos.

Peterside said the agency was committed toward handling the threat of piracy and other types of crimes at sea.

Nigeria is poised to tackle the menace of piracy and we've recorded great successes in the past three months.

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

According to him, the two states stand to derive mutual benefits from such connection.

Peterside recognised the tactical position of Korea as an important ship building country.

He guided the Consul-General on the need for capable Nigerian seafarers to be placed on-board Korean vessels working in Nigerian maritime domain.

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

Our vision is to have a safe and bonded ocean with zero piracy in another one year, the director-general said.

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

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

NAN reports that Peterside, at a recent forum, expressed the desire of the agency 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 preparation of the Korean Government to support Naija in the area of marine safety and security.

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

Dogara said if Naija would be to observe significant improvement in quality of leadership and governing, the citizens must alter 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 an associate of the parliament, Jagaba Adams Jagaba at ECWA Church, Chigwa, Kaduna State, in accordance with 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 should also understand that leaders are recruited from among them.

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

There's constantly expectations from citizens for leaders to demonstrate a higher standard of behaviour. Obviously, it is good that those who call themselves leaders should always aspire to keep higher standards.

But what exactly is wrong with the narrative, notably in Nigeria, is that in many cases, citizens anticipate that only leaders must live above board. This nation can only make progress if all the citizens and leaders resolve that in their daily endeavors, they will keep the greatest of standards.

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

Dogara admonished politicians to place their trust in God because power comes from God, success comes from God, no one, no matter how powerful he or she's, can give you power.

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

He said the electorate should rather lay emphasis on individual nature and not political party affiliation, saying that he's 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 humanity to live a life of gratitude, service, praise and worship.
