Nigerian govt, UNICEF begin process of reopening schools

Nigerian govt, UNICEF begin process of reopening schools


The Federal Ministry of Education in conjunction with the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF, Committee on Safe School Re-opening, on Monday, began a process for the development of school reopening readiness template.
Azuka Menkiti, Education Specialist, UNICEF, made this known in Kaduna, at the opening of a three-day technical Meeting of the Committee on Safe School Re-opening.
She said this is to guide the re-opening of schools across the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting was organised by the Federal Ministry of Education, with support from UNICEF, to put measures in place for safe re-opening of schools.
Mrs Menkiti explained that the template would identify actions that would be implemented at every level of education governance, to ensure that schools were safe for students and pupils to return and learn.
She said that the template would look at four components, namely safety operations; quality of learning; child protection and wellbeing; and inclusiveness.
“The meeting was, therefore, organised to develop a standard, actionable, and practical integrated school re-opening readiness template that will provide the necessary support to stakeholders for safe reopening of schools.
“This integrated approach will ensure that all relevant stakeholders use the template to measure readiness for school resumption amidst COVID-19 pandemic.
“We equally want to chart a way forward for safe learning facilities for quality teaching and learning.
“This will ensure that safety measures are put in place in schools, learning continues, and gaps are filled for students and pupils, child protection and wellbeing assured, and no one is left behind,” she said.
The education specialist said that at the end of the meeting, the committee would come up with a template showing the requirement that every school governance structure needs to put in place.
She added that the committee would equally develop a cost model, indicating how much it would cost to implement the template across different categories of schools based on population.
According to her, the cost model will serve as a guide for the interventions of development partners and other stakeholders in the education sector.
“This will help development partners to redirect their funds to adequately respond to challenges occasioned by COVID-19 in the sector.
“We will also come up with a clear monitoring template for compliance as well as a Monitoring Team that will ensure that everybody who needs to do something does it,” she said.
Also speaking, Binta Abdulkadir, Director, Basic and Secondary Education Department, Federal Ministry of Education, said that the step was necessary, stressing those children cannot continue to stay at home.
Mrs Abdulkadir, who was represented by Josephine Nwaobiara, Deputy Director, Basic and Secondary Education in the ministry, noted the need for continuity of learning in times of emergencies.
“There is, therefore, the need for us to put a guideline that will ensure the needed safety in schools for our children to return to school,” she said.
On his part, Dr Yahya Disu, Head, Risk Communication Division, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, stressed the need for effective communication and information sharing across all levels in the education sector.
Mr Disu added that the readiness template would ensure strong linkage among education stakeholders that would enhance prevention, early detection, and contact tracking of suspected cases of COVID-19 in schools.
“It will also facilitate the establishment of schools’ health team that will implement safety protocols and regular education of staff, students, pupils and other stakeholders on COVID-19 while in school,” he added.

We’ll continue to prioritize Education Sector- Makinde

We’ll continue to prioritize Education Sector- Makinde


Oyo State governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde, on Sunday, declared that his administration would continue to prioritise education, saying that education remained the key to societal growth.
Makinde, who spoke at two separate events put together by the Bishop of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, said that the state’s economic recovery programme can conveniently rest on a properly fixed education sector.
Speaking at the dedication of the Global Mission Centre and Global Mission Plaza, which were named after the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye, and the governor of Akwa Ibom State, Governor Udom Emmanuel, respectively, Governor Makinde said education would ensure that people embrace development.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted the governor as adding that educated minds cannot be held down by any means.
He also stated that with the dedication of the campus, more missionaries will get educated, adding that the manner in which the church is contributing to the growth of the education sector was commendable.
He said: “I am always excited when I get invitations to speak at events that have to do with education. If I were told to choose one of the four pillars of our administration and which one to use to build the economic recovery of Oyo State, I will most likely choose education as the foremost. An educated person cannot be held down.”
The governor charged the people of the state to support the government in its efforts to develop the state to a greater height, saying: “A lot of people may not know but mission schools have had a long history in Oyo State. One of the mission schools was built here in Oyo State over 70 years ago. So, these days, some people think that the work of building schools should be left only to the government.
“I will always say that the government can only do so much. Development is a collective responsibility.
“The main function of government is to make and enforce laws that will make the lives of the citizens better. As we fellowship together, let us not forget the importance of our roles as citizens. We should not rest on our oars.
“We can have many more of these mission schools for the education of our people and, as partners in progress, we are open to listening to you. If there are bottlenecks in your work, which you believe the government can straighten out, do not hesitate to reach out to us and we will see what we can do about it.”
The governor also appreciated the founder of the Ministries, Bishop Wale Oke, for hosting him at the 38th Annual Holy Ghost Convention of the Ministries and for his contributions towards educational development in the state.
Similarly, Akwa Ibom State governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, lauded Bishop Oke for imparting so much in him.
“I thank God for a day like this. Our father, Bishop Wale Oke, has imparted in me so much, especially in this political terrain. I want to join my faith with others to say that there will be an increase that is beyond his expectation,” Udom said.
Governor Makinde, who also joined Bishop Oke and Pastor Adeboye at the sod-turning ceremony for the Tabernacle of David Cathedral at Covenant Chapel, Ecumenical Centre, along Secretariat, Ibadan, declared that he would support the building project and see to its completion.
Earlier in his sermon, Pastor Adeboye called on people to believe in God and seek his guidance always, while also commending Bishop Oke for being steadfast in spreading the gospel of Christ.
Dignitaries at the event include the Governor of Akwa Ibom, Udom Emmanuel; wife of the Oyo State Governor, Engineer Tamunominini Makinde, wife of Pastor Adeboye, Mrs Folu Adeboye, church leaders and top functionaries of Oyo and Akwa-Ibom State governments.

Can’t Sharia be imposed not on those that don’t believe in the law? __Written by Olugbade Majeed Abiola. (Lèv)

Can’t Sharia be imposed not on those that don’t believe in the law? __Written by Olugbade Majeed Abiola. (Lèv)


Lèv writes to bitterly celebrate INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE DISAPPEARED.


Introduction:
The illustration of evil and bad, what is really wrong and a threat, what should be got rid of and campaign against, what is dangerous to humanity and humans is not really indefinite or capricious or what we should go all the way to Sokoto to search for, for it’s what we’re feeling at one side of our left chest and bottom middle right of our trousers.
There was a question asked Christopher Hitchens (a reputable atheist, professor & brilliant journalist) by Dennis Prager (one of America’s better-known religious broadcasters), he challenged him in public to answer what he called a “straight yes/no question” that he should imagine himself in a strange city as the evening was coming on. Toward him he was to imagine that he saw a large group of men approaching. Would he feel safer or less safer, if he was to learn that they were just coming from a prayer meeting?
Hitchens replied as if it were hypothetical “Just to say within the letter ‘B’, I have actually had that experience in Belfast, Beirut, Bombay, Belgrade, Bethlehem and Baghdad. In each case I can say absolutely and can give my reasons, why I would feel immediately threatened if I thought that the group of men approaching me in dusk were coming from religion observance”.
In black and white, we all know how perilous it could be for a well-known non-believer to face mob of believers. And in contrary how harmless a believer in same such situation. “What’s malevolence and what not is glaring if we truly want to be honest with oneself”.
April 30th 2020, a social media atheist was arrested in Kano for blasphemy- (The act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for any religion’s deity or deities.) by Sharia law and since then he has been locked up, denied access to lawyers, denied free hearing, restricted from seeing his family; loved ones; friends; being tortured and in time received many a death-threat from can be called God’s advocates if dare be released. And today makes it 124days of his disappearance.
So, I am joining thousands of hearty human beings, civil-rights activists, humanists, humanitarians, logical thinkers in clamouring for unconditional release and safety of Mubarak Bala under these premises:
BALA SHOULD BE ARRAIGNED ONLY BY ORDINARY LAW:
it sounds barbaric for a man to be condemned and detained under the system of law that he doesn’t believe in and this prompts the question of ‘is Kano state a fully totalitarian Islamic state?’. If ‘YES’, then there is no freedom of religion in Nigeria, if ‘NO’ then the Sharia law shouldn’t be for non-Muslim in Kano state. It’s quite simple, Islam should never be imposed on citizens of anywhere in Nigeria since the country is a federal and democratic state. And if Islam is not to be imposed, there should be a thousand reason why a man that believes not in the religion and its law shouldn’t be arraigned under its law. Detaining of Mubarak Bala is imposition of religion and its system on him, therefore, denying him his fundamental human right to choose his religion. Similar case is of a non-vegetarian getting arrested and arraigned in Mumbai for eating beef.
BALA MUBARAK COMMITS NO CAPITAL OFFENCE:
We should remember that the man was arrested only over social media posts. He wasn’t arrested in one of the North’s forest with ammunitions killing innocent kids and women(in fact those that did were been laid down on bed and fanned by the government), Mubarak did not kidnap anyone nor was he a rapist, he embezzled not public funds nor bribe. He never committed treason nor planned a coup. Bala didn’t bomb a motor park nor arm-robbed a bank or its relatives. His only offence is sincere denier of any belief. So what is the point of death-threat on a man that isn’t of any threat?
HE TOO HUMAN: Bala Mubarak is an intellectual, a husband of a woman and father of children, a decent and outspoken scholar, a literary writer and a critic, a raw talent and one of the better hopes of better community. Even if such a man should be lost, he should be lost for something. Respect him as human being to contact his lawyer and family and should be given fair hearing.
LEAVE HIM FOR GOD TO PUNISH: you claim he blasphemed, then, leave him to the God he insulted for proper and more severe judgment. Who are you to be so strict a God’s advocate since he himself is omni benevolent and the owner the severest punishment(s). For prosperity purpose, why can’t you just let him go just to face a louder music from whom he blasphemed? Or what will make you different from those pagans you condemn, who their Idols can’t talk, speak, act or react and only exist as a result foolishness of their followers.
And we all are cognizant of the fact that all religions blaspheme the belief and God or gods of others. And any believer or non-believer is a non-believer in path and in belief of other believer. So tell the world what Bala Mubarak did again?
Though, I feel unsafe for what I’ve written yet some words are not better left unsaid. And justice and freedom worth clamour for.
Solidarity forever.
Join the clamour # FreeMubarakBala.
Happy INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE DISAPPEARED.

Olugbade Majeed Abiola. (Lèv)

Nine States Affected as JAMB Delists 22 Centres

Nine States Affected as JAMB Delists 22 Centres

The JAMB boss said the centres charged candidates N3,000, N5,000 for an amount that supposed to be N200 as service charge for the centre.
He said the board has concrete proof of the infractions, adding that the board made undercover payments to the centres in order to actually detect the fraud that was being perpetrated by them.
The registrar, however, informed that the board has reversed the charges done illegally by affected candidates, adding also that the money paid to JAMB to effect the changes remain intact on their profiles.
He advised the candidates to change their passwords to avoid further damage following exposure of the secret code to operators of the now blacklisted CBT centres.
Speaking further, the JAMB boss lamented that all owners of the affected CBT centres are from one section of the country, saying such behaviour of fleecing both innocent and not-innocent candidates of several amounts of money under the guise of effecting changes in registration details portends danger for the country.
A representative of Duntro CBT Centre, David Ugochukwu, blamed the illegal act on his technical staff, saying that they have been sacked from the organisation.
Ugochukwu, however, claimed he had earlier written to JAMB to inundate it of the identified breaches in the registration application that may allow the bypass of OTP in the correction of candidates’ data in their absence with the submission of their passwords.
Other CBT representatives who spoke at the meeting, apologised and admitted to the illegal activities but blamed the problem on technical staff.

Buhari Has Done What OBJ, Yar’Adua, Jonathan Couldn’t Achieve – Adesina

Buhari Has Done What OBJ, Yar’Adua, Jonathan Couldn’t Achieve – Adesina


Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity on Friday gave details of how former Presidents elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deceived Nigerians with the Second Niger Bridge project.
In his weekly article titled ‘ My Mercedes Is Bigger Than Yours’, Adesina said former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo who ruled Nigeria from 1999 to 2007; Umaru Musa Yar’adua who was President from 2007 to 2010 and his successor, Goodluck Jonathan only used the Second Niger Bridge project as a campaign promise during the 16 year reign of the PDP.
He said “We can never say too much about the Second Niger Bridge. The existing one was built in 1965, and had become totally inadequate to serve as the artery between the southern and other parts of the country. When it is festive season like Christmas, come and see how people suffer on the bridge, spending hours on end, sometimes days”.
“The bridge became an object of fake political promises, particularly in the 16 years of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). It was like a pie in the sky, which they kept building with their mouths. Whenever elections approached, they would go to the site with hoes, cutlasses and wheelbarrows, pretending to dig the ground, all to win votes. Whenever the polls were completed, and they had swindled the people of their votes, they disappeared. Till the next election”.
According to Adesina, despite huge revenue from crude oil and spending billions of naira, the project was at non- existent level until President Muhammadu Buhari came in 2015. He added that the Bridge is now at 48 percent completion stage and will be fully completed in the first quarter of 2022.
“And they claimed to have spent billions upon billions of naira on the project. Yet, it remained at the blueprint level. Olusegun Obasanjo launched it with much fanfare. That was where it ended. Umaru Yar’Adua did not seem to touch it, maybe he did, maybe he didn’t”.
“Goodluck Jonathan said his middle name was Ebele, making him an indigene of the South East, where the bridge was situated. He said what would he say he did for his people, if he couldn’t build the bridge. He spent six years in office, and all he left were the ubiquitous hoes, cutlasses and wheelbarrows”.
“Enter Muhammadu Buhari. Without fanfare, without flourish, he set to work. The Presidential Infrastructure Development Fund (PIDF) was set up in 2018 to fast-track the completion of critical infrastructural projects. And at the last count, the Second Niger Bridge was 48% completed, with the sights firmly set on the first quarter of 2022 as completion time”.
“The things we couldn’t accomplish when we were swimming in petro-dollars, we are now daring and making steady progress on, at a season of scarcity. That is what you get when the Captain of a ship has only come to serve, not to feather his own nest” .

Nigeria is not a normal country —Dr Obadiah Mailafia

Nigeria is not a normal country —Dr Obadiah Mailafia


“There is something abnormal about our country . Nigeria is a country that hates truth and this not normal at all..
“These kiIIings going on constitute an existential threat. I don’t know why for the life of me, that people tolerate the kiIIings and think it is okay.
“And that when we speak and tell people about the reality of what we are facing now, they are more concerned about the sources, more concerned about political correctness; they have absolutely no concern about the holy martyrs that are being slaughtered.
“Why can’t we face the reality of the people being kiIIed — the children, elderly, women, the youth being kiIIed on a daily basis? That is my focus. Any other thing, to me, is diversionary. People have questioned my sources. They have questioned my political correctness”.

Bad leadership is kiIIing Nigeria’s potentials — Tony Blair

Bad leadership is kiIIing Nigeria’s potentials — Tony Blair


Tony Blair, a former UK Prime MinisterFormer British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, has said Nigeria has all it takes to join the ranks of first world countries, but still languishes behind as a third world country due to leadership failure in meeting the three key development parameters.
Blair who made the statement on Wednesday, at the Nigeria Bar Association 60th annual conference, listed the three key development parameters, which he said are rules based economy, human capital development and strong institutions.
He however, noted that these conditions would not be actualized in the absence of rule of Law, which he described as “absolutely vital.”
He advised that for Nigeria to move from a third world status to a developed nation, it must meet the three development parameters and develop its “infrastructure and good power generation system”.
His words: “If you ask, what does a nation have to do to be successful today? I think there are three prerequisites:
“First of all you have to have rules based economy which involves a predictable environment for investment, a climate for enterprise and business that rewards hard-work that enables companies to grow and where the infrastructure that is built in the country goes to support electricity, roads, rail, etc.”
Meanwhile, a former Governor of Anambra State and running mate to Atiku Abubakar in the last presidential election, Mr. Peter Obi, has said the Buhari administration wants to solve Nigeria’s economic problems, but obviously lack the capacity to do so.
Obi made the statement when he featured on a live interview on Arise Television in Lagos.
The former governor regretted that the current managers of the economy are not doing enough to rescue citizens from the poverty net, adding that Nigeria’s budget per capita stands at $150 compared to South Africa with $2000, Egypt $600, Algeria $1700 and Morocco $900.
“Nigeria’s budget for each citizen is not up to a quarter of the budget size per head of the four other countries listed above in Africa”. He said.
Coming down to West Africa, the businessman said Ghana’s budget per individual citizen is $455, Cote’Dvorie at $340 and Cameroun at $300, stressing that Nigeria is just about 50 percent of the budget size of Cameroun per individual citizen.
In comparison to Asia, Obi said Thailand’s budget per head is about $1500, Indonesia is over $600, Vietnam at $700 and Bangladesh which is a very poor country is at $300 which means Nigeria’s budget per head is very low when compared to countries around the world.
‘‘So the question to ask is what did they do and what are they doing? Increasing your revenue is simple. You cannot withdraw money from a bank if you do not pay in. As a country, we must invest in the critical areas of development. And those critical areas are very simple. You must fight poverty.
“We have to invest money in small businesses because the more we invest in that area, the more the country can collect more taxes to shore up revenue and pull the citizens out of poverty. People cannot pay taxes when they are in poverty. So that area of SMEs must be supported to grow’’
The former Governor said until the Federal Government invests in the people and end poverty in the country, things would only get worse for the country.

New Terrorist Sect Discovered By The Nigeria Army In Nasarawa

Darul Salam: New Terrorist Sect Discovered By The Nigeria Army In Nasarawa


The Nigerian army, led by the Operation Whirl Stroke unit and other security agencies deployed at Uttu in Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, made the massive arrest of these terrorists who had both women and children in their camps.
The information was made known to the public through the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, John Enenche after he posted the update on the DHQ, @DefenceInfoNG Twitter handle.
He mentioned that the terrorist, 410 in number which included women and children, surrendered to men of the Nigerian army.
The army also added that during the operation, the men of the operation whirl stroke recovered several IED (Improvised Explosive Device) making materials at the terrorist camp.
Among the weapons recovered in the bomb making factory included 2 scales, 6 rocket launcher bombs, a bag of fertilizer, half bag of gun powder, 10 locally produced hand grenades, one fuse for a Rocket Propelled Grenade bomb, one locally made Rocket Launcher, 2 IEDs,13 Improvised rocket bombs, amongst others.
While details of this new group is relatively unknown, I made a little check on the background of the group and I discovered some details which I will share.
The Darum Salam sect, way back in 2009, was evacuated by the Niger state government evacuated on suspicion of being a terrorist group.
The Niger state government, evacuated over 3,000 members of the group who had for a long time, secluded themselves in Mokwa, a town of about 100 kilometers from Minna, the state capital.
Information had been given, that the group, Darul-Islam, otherwise known as the Land of Islam, has been functional for over 17 years and through the period, no violence had been reported about any member of the group.
Explaining the operations of the group, the leader, Bashir Suleiman, explained that they decided to isolate themselves based on religious decision but the state government, while acting on a tip-off and the need to rid the state of suspected Boko haram terrorist decided to evacuate them to a camp at the Federal Government Technical College, Mokwa immediately.
Also, checks on the WikiLeaks website also gave some insight into the workings of the group.
Wikileaks reported that In 2010, the Niger State government had evacuated 82 men, women, and children who were Kebbi indigenes and suspected to be members of the Darul Islam religious sect.
They were taken back to Kebbi state and camped at the police station as at then since the gov did not know what to do with them.
The leader of the sect had vehemently rejected this information and argued that the 82 people that were sent back to Kebbi were not from his sect.
He also refused the label given to them by the state government as a terrorist sect insisting they were just a bunch of religious people looking for a place to practice their religion without polluting themselves.
Suleiman also added that among the things prohibited by the sect included alcoholism, brothels, lesbianism, homosexuality, fornication, adultery, and all sorts of cultural, religious, economical corruption.
Further speaking, he explained that their aim is not to infringe on the rights of other people while practicing their religion.
It is rather shocking that today, the army made this huge discovery even after having this warning over the years, and although the former neighbours in the locations where this sect once operated, had confessed that they have lived for about 16 years in a peaceful existence, it, therefore, comes as a surprise as to the magnitude of weapons discovered.
This is calling on the Nigerian army and other security organizations to conduct further and deeper investigations on all other sects masquerading as religious sects to cause mayhem in the country.
