Forex scarcity bringing best out of Nigerians, says CBN

The present scarcity of foreign exchange confronting the state has been called a good development for the Nigerian market as local production of various crucial goods is being given top priority with favorable consequences.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, who reiterated the declaration 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 actual economic growth of any state and that Nigeria couldn't be an exclusion.

Meanwhile, the state governor, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, who stated that farmers in the state had been adequately mobilised towards attainment of the one million tonnes of paddy rice by supplying them with vital input signal as and when due, said with the guarantee of availability of market for the produce, farmers in the state happen to be getting excited about the repayment of the loan facility extended to them at the start of the farming season.

While acknowledging the pivotal parts of both the CBN and the state government in supply of fertilisers, irrigation equipment and loans, he said the farmers now look forward to a bumper harvest.

Emefiele, who commended farmers and the Kebbi State government for his or her determination and dedication in the scheme, noted that with the degree of success achieved in the pilot project in the state, in addition to the progress at Sunti Golden Sugar Estate in Niger, it is now a reality that the nation can produce enough to feed itself and even export in no distant future.

Moreover, 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 from the projected seven million tonnes demanded by the whole state, self sufficiency in rice production is very much at sight by the time other 12 states identified as rice creating belts pick their produce.

While commending the efforts of the CBN for reinventing agricultural practice into profitable business venture, the minister said that rural areas remain the catalyst for sustainable economic development.

The CBN governor noted that with 78,581 farmers mobilised in Kebbi State under the anchorman borrowers programme and the disbursement of N4.9 billion as loans to the farmers, about 570,000 direct jobs have been created, while 70,871 of the rural farmers now own and manage bank accounts.

Nigerians support authorities’s desire for a budget that is realistic

Alhaji Maimala Buni, National Secretary, All Progressives Congress (APC), said the support Nigerians were giving President Muhammadu Buhari in his pursuit to have a realistic budget, reflected the individuals’s religion in the naija current breaking news administration.

Maimala who stated this on Sunday in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Damaturu, said Nigerians comprehended the desire of government to have a workable file which execution would improve their lives.

"It is clear that there is trust in authorities now and, Nigeria’s image has substantially enhanced with an elevated interest by foreign investors to put money into the state, before the international community.

Every country is getting excited about doing business with Nigeria because we have a president who is clear, devoted, incorruptible and trusted and the entire international community" he said.

The party scribe said Nigerian’s belief in the APC authorities was further demonstrated by the large 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 religion in the party and President Buhari to enhance their lives.

"In spite of the hardships endured 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 the protection situation in the North East had improved considerably President Buhari.

Saraki: Nigerians broken up over calls for his resignation

Saraki is undergoing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja, for alleged false declaration of assets. Several attempts by the Senate President to block the trial have met legal brick walls , even as more allegations of massive corruption continue to emerge.

On his part, Francis Okpozo (Delta South) additionally urged Saraki to "stay until the results of the case." When he has innocent he described as premature calls for the Senate leader’s resignation. "There's no way he can be forced out, and we shouldn't pre-empt the court’s determination," he added.

But former national chairman of Justice Party (JP), Chief Ralph Obioha, noted the case against the Senate President is an indictment, thus "the honourable thing for him to do is step aside, pending the conclusion of his trial."

He said: Morally speaking, there is no justification for him to continue to hang to power.

"A precedence has been set in this type of circumstance. Evans Enwerem was Senate President, Chuba Okadigbo was Adolphus Wabara, as well as Senate President; they'd different cases that touched on morality and they all leave their positions while their trial continued. When his trial is successfully gone through by him he can always reclaim his position. I don't see it as a do or die thing. I consider it's even in his interest he does not impact the process of the trial using his position."

Warning that APC’s grouse with the Senate President has the capability to destroy the party, Ikpo said: " I WOn't request him to submit to the wishes of those who need to persecute him. I'll tell him to keep fighting. He has not been found guilty. Some of his mates even said that he's a very good case as regards what they're accusing him of. We should view and see when he starts his defence.

"The CCT must not correct Tinubu’s mistake with Saraki. The CCT admitted it made blunders. If your mistake was made in the instance of of Senator Bola Tinubu, should you now correct it? It isn't correct. They should have continued with exactly the same mistake. By toying with the excellent opportunity it's aPC is destroying itself. Things are not going well for them. Things are not good in the state for everybody. Nobody will vote for them if there is an election today

Roland Owie, former Chief Whip of the Senate and PDP chieftain 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 to the Senate in 2011, and re-elected in 2015. What Nigerians have to request the CCT is: was the CCT in detention between 2003 and June 2015, when Saraki became the Senate President?

The National Organising Secretary of Action for Democracy (AD), Abdallah Ibrahim, noted: "Saraki should come to terms with reality, resign and face his case."

He should have resigned and even step down from your political party or be compelled to resign from the place by the party. I don't believe I could find better words by following him to the trial for what the senators are doing, than say it's a show of shame."

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

Span! A Benin parable says, ‘a child who says his mum WOn't sleep wo’t sleep either’. He must not resign until its complete cycle runs to the Supreme Court since those fighting Saraki are only unhappy that he is Senate President.

"Agents of darkness did it to Senator Adolphus Wabara and late Senator Chuba Okadigbo. They stepped aside. And at the end of the day, when they got success it was too late to return as Senate Presidents. Saraki do’t step down until after the Supreme Court ruling!"

Until the matter is sorted out "In advanced societies, he should have quit. But as it is, now, I can say the onus lies on him to resign or continue to remain in office. That is because you can find particular interests that need to ensure office is left by him at all cost. Take a look at the outburst from the court, which can be an obvious indicator that it has an interest it truly is protecting.

"I consider it's a trial on our democracy and whatever is great if we must safeguard it should be done to make it work for us. I'd like to say that many are seeing the matter as a controversial one. And that's why you cannot expressly ask the Senate President to resign and confront his trial, Obasi was said by ".

On moral reasons, dominant attorney, also in Cross River State, Mr. Etim Inyang, considers Saraki should step aside, as he has the weight of going to the tribunal daily. He, nevertheless, included that there is no legal assumption to justify a resignation because the accused is presumed innocent. "It is only when the court makes a pronouncement, and not even a pronouncement from your tribunal. There must be a final decision in court before he is considered guilty or not," Inyang noted.

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Umar Na’Abba, described calls as ill conceived for Saraki’s resignation, stressing that the leader remains not guilty.

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

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

"I believe that everybody understands what played out, right in the very minute the National Assembly was inaugurated, and particularly the way the APC tried to take the interest of everybody into account. But in a twist of fate, it seemed some persons let their own private interest to supersede that of the party. That has truly get the party in jeopardy. We still feel bitter the inordinate ambition of the current Senate President has set a lot of stumbling block on the path of the party and the Presidency," he said.

Based on Mohammed I am not saying he's guilty, but with quasi-criminal charges against him, he should not step down as a senator, but as the Senate President. Sycophants have been seen by me at the office. Because of what they think they are getting in the crisis, they're not telling him the truth. It is not sound for the Number Three citizen of this nation to be place in the dock everyday."

Obende, who represented Edo North between 2012 and 2015, said The problem is already in court. The lawyers will need to look at it.‎ I 'm of the view that the party is supreme in everything, but they must sit down together, the leadership of the party and the parties, and let there be serious discussions. And if there is going to be a soft landing, allow it to be. But whatever the party determines, that is exactly what will take pre-eminence."
