….Commends FG for Staying True to Minimum Wage Arrears Payment Promise

 ….Urges Nigerians to Keep Faith with PMB’s Administration

Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), in appreciation to God Almighty for keeping him alive to witness and celebrate his 62nd birthday, rededicated his life for better services to humanity.

In his new year message to Nigerians, made available to media houses, the party stalwart urged citizens to keep faith with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, in its determination and stern resolve to turn the fortunes of Nigerians through critical but hard decisions that will impact positively in the future of the country and the populace.

Eze, a media guru, commended and congratulated the Federal Government, particularly the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige for proving wrong the doubting Thomases, by fulfilling the pledge to not only implement the minimum wage, but to pay the arrears of about eight months salary owed to Federal  Civil Servants before the end of the year 2019.

Eze who turned 62 today considers this a gesture and  special birthday package which is intended to inject life into lots of families in Nigeria.

In demonstration of his love for a better and egalitarian Rivers State, Chief Eze appealed to Governor Nyesom Ezebuwo Wike of Rivers State to consider the circumstances that brought him into power and resolve to work for a better and secured Rivers State this year, by effectively utilising the state’s resources and channelling them into profitable ventures to touch the lives of the youth and the elderly through massive employment, appointments and prompt payment of salaries, emoluments and other sundry allowances due Civil Servants and Pensioners. With the huge funds that accrue to Rivers State on monthly basis from the Federation Account and internally generated revenue, Eze said, any serious administration can turn the State into a Paradise.

He congratulated the Governor for swearing in the Commissioners but counseled him to allow them free hands to enable them bring in ideas that will improve governance in the State.

Eze, a party chief expressed sadness over the negative politics embarked upon by Senator Magnus Abe, stressing that such contributed chiefly to what made Wike lose sight of the true essence of governance. He pleaded with the Ogoni-born ex-Senator to apologize to the All Progressives Congress and the good people of Rivers State, especially now that his evil agenda have been exposed, stressing that fighting further will mean volunteering to injury, and as the saying goes, “a volunteer to injury cannot further complain”.

Eze encouraged Rivers people to have hope in God, stressing that His ultimate will must surely come to bear on issues pertaining to Rivers State. He expressed hope that the APC will take her rightful position in the political affairs of Rivers State, notwithstanding the satanic collaboration and grand conspiracies.

Eze described Rt. Hon. Dr Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as a light from Niger Delta region and expressed confidence that the light will bring hope to Nigeria and Nigerians within a short while.  “I am so happy of the joy that Amaechi has brought to Nigerians with the revolution he is igniting through the Rail System,” Eze opined.

He stressed the need for Nigerians to do more towards strengthening the nation’s bond of unity which seems to be under severe threat by forces of national disintegration and secessionists propagators.

While congratulating Nigerians on this epoch making year, Eze urged all and sundry  to continue to pray always for the country and her leaders especially for divine direction in critical decisions and moments of challenges.

Eze commends and congratulated his Media Aides and hundreds of Media Partners for  their contributions towards making our Team one of the most vibrant, vocal and dreaded Media Teams in Nigeria today.  “As we collectively rejoice over making it to 2020, let us prepare ourselves for a greater outing hoping that the political system will appreciate most of our deeds this time around”. Eze said.  “In the spirit of my birthday pray and hope that 2020 will be better for us all”. He averred.

He thanked most of our political Leaders particularly Rt. Hon. Dr. Amaechi, who stood by him even at the period his life and that of his family were under threat by some of those who felt threatened by his bold steps to expose their plots against a virile, egalitarian, vibrant, united, progressive and better Nigeria.

Eze described 2019 as an eventful year for his team, opining that he cannot thank  all those who made the year one of his best in his 62 years of sojourn over here.

“Apart from my special thanks to my Media Team and Partners who stood by me not minding all my shortcomings, my brother and leader, Dr. Amaechi need a great commendation for giving me the Lion spirit to confront the enemies of our society headlong, silencing and conquering them accordingly”. Eze said.

“Thanks and thanks to Dr.Dakuku Adol Peterside, Dame Judith Amaechi, PrinceTonye Princewill,  Aso Wenah, Debiwari, Amb. Ngofa, Mohammed Bello, Prince Lucky Worlu, Lady Oby Ndukwue, Dr. ThankGod Ode, Rt. Hon. Leyi Kwanee

 Dr. Tolofari, Celestine Akpobari, Chief Martins Yellowe and many others I need not mention their names for making the year 2019 eventful for me.”

I appreciate you too and hope that 2020 will cause us to help in rebuilding Rivers State to the vision of the founding fathers of the State”

“I need to clarify something for you here. The immigrant visa ban does not affect people who are currently resident in the United States. It does not cancel the status of anyone who currently lives in the United States.

SANWO-OLU BIDS JUSTICE BULKACHUWA FAREWELL, AS APPEAL COURT PRESIDENT RETIRES

…Lagos’ll Always Keep Faith In The Rule Of Law, Says Governor

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said his administration will not deviate from the tenet of constitutional democracy, promising that actions of the State Government under his watch will be kept within the ambit of the law.

He said his Government’s faith in the judicial system remained unshakable, adding that Lagos had been a beneficiary of the rule of law.

Sanwo-Olu spoke on Wednesday while receiving the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Adamu Bulkachuwa, on a courtesy visit at the Lagos House in Marina.

Justice Bulkachuwa, who was accompanied by other Justices of the Appeal Court, is retiring from the service after reaching the mandatory retirement period.

The Governor said Lagos would always stand on the good side of the law, adding that his administration would particularly stand in principle against actions that may undermine the independence of the Court.

He said: “Government in Lagos State is committed to ensuring that we all live within the ambit of the law. We will continue to engage the judiciary as an independent arm of the government. All of us in the executive arm will continue to uphold the tenet of the constitution that we swore to in our ways and deeds. We will not run foul of the law or any pronouncement of the Court.”

Sanwo-Olu saluted the outgoing Justice Bulkachuwa for her courage in driving far-reaching reforms in the Court of Appeal, saying her legacies would strengthen administration of justice across the country. The Governor said her legacies would be a guiding light for members of the judiciary and officers in the other arms of government.

The Governor said: “We are happy that you are proceeding to retirement at this prime age. You are now 70 years old but you are looking like a 50-year-old. Glory be to Almighty Allah for the grace of youthful appearance and energy. You have had a wonderful career in the judiciary.

“The several successes you have recorded during your tenure as President of the Court of Appeal will continue to be the legacy we will uphold in remembrance of your service to the nation. You are the oldest serving President of the Court of Appeal and you brought many reforms and laudable initiatives to strengthen the judicial process.

“Whoever is succeeding you will have enough to draw from your legacies. We hope you keep your doors open not only to the judiciary but also all of us who are looking forward to learn from your leadership skills.”

Justice Bulkachuwa said she would dedicate her retirement life to promoting girl-child education across the country, noting that she would not have achieved her potential had her father not given her a chance to go to school.

She was hopeful that the reforms and discipline she had instituted in the judiciary would be strengthened by the serving members, pointing out that she had mentored a new breed of judicial officers to entrench “good legacies” she is leaving behind.

“I will still be with my sisters and brother in the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Courts. I have mentored so many young judicial officers and upcoming lawyers to carry on the legacies. I will still be part of the judicial system despite my retirement,” Justice Bulkachuwa said.

Asked why she chose to visit Lagos Governor in her first valedictory visit to any elected official, Justice Bulkachuwa said it was in Lagos the first Court of Appeal was set up among the three divisions created in 1976.

Besides, she said Lagos is playing pivotal roles in the administration of justice system, pointing out that majority of lawyers in the judiciary are serving in the State. She added that most of Appeal Court’s cases were being instituted in Lagos.

FRSC Blames Low Literacy For High Rates Of Road Crashes

Literacy

 

The Kastina State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Ali Tanimu, has blamed the low level of literacy for the high rate of road crashes on highways.

Tanimu stated this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday, February 18.

Speaking in Katsina, he said that most drivers do not understand the Highway Code.

His word: ‘’They either don’t buy them or they do not care to read and understand it. Most of the crashes are avoidable if the motorists will abide by the laid down traffic rules and regulations,’’ he said.

‘’Due to the nature of our roads, some drivers overtake on a bridge, sharp bends or hilly areas where they cannot see far distance. ‘’In most cases, what will happen is either the vehicle will jump into the bridge or it will have a head-on collision with another vehicle,’’ he said.

The sector commander further said that making phone calls while driving also contributes to high rates of accidents on highways.

‘’Some of the drivers even went to the extent of checking or writing SMS text messages while driving, and the worst part of it, is that the passengers will just keep quiet,’’ he said

According to the sector commander, some drivers mix and overloads human beings with animals or goods, and drive at high speed. According to him, in such circumstances, when there is an accident, it will be fatal. He thus advised drivers not exceed 100-speed limits for the safety of passengers.

‘’If you want to travel far, you should have to start the journey in good time to avoid overspending.”

The sector commander further urged motorists to ensure that their vehicles have good headlamps if they want to travel in the night; good tyres and no mechanical fault, explaining that all those are contained in the code, as such drivers should endeavour to study it.
