PRESIDENT BUHARI CONGRATULATES FIRST INDIGENOUS NRC MD/CEO, ELDER NATH OKORO ON 90TH BIRTHDAY

President Muhammadu Buhari sends warm greetings to the first indigenous Managing Director of Nigerian Railways Corporation (NRC), Elder Nath C.U. Okoro, on his 90th birthday, congratulating the resourceful consultant for paying close attention and solidifying the foundation of rail transportation in the country.

President Buhari felicitates with friends, family and associates of Elder Okoro on the auspicious milestone, which calls for celebration of long life and strength, particularly considering his contributions to national development, with the commendable record of founding the Nigerian Institute of Transport Technology (NITT).

As the former MD of NRC turns 90, the President notes his love for the country, and passion for ensuring an effective transportation system, serving as the Principal Consultant, Federal Urban Mass Transit Programme (FUMTP) and President of the Chartered Institute of Transport, Nigeria, now known as Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

As the former Vice President, West Africa, of the Union of African Railways (UAR), the President extols Elder Okoro for always representing Nigeria with honour and dignity in sub-regional and global associations, and ensuring that the interest of the country comes first in all negotiations.

The President prays that almighty God will grant him good health and strength to see the fruits of his dreams for the railways.

PRESIDENT BUHARI MOURNS ZAKI YAMANI, SAYS HE WAS AN INSPIRATION

PRESIDENT BUHARI MOURNS ZAKI YAMANI, SAYS HE WAS AN INSPIRATION

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the death of former Saudi Arabia’s longest serving Oil Minister, Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani, who died at a London hospital at 90.

Reacting to the passing of Yamani, President Buhari said “Yamani was one of the greatest and most skillful negotiators I ever met when I was Minister for Petroleum Resources during the Murtala/Obasanjo regime.”

According to the President, “the late Yamani was a towering figure in the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC because of his remarkable leadership skills and fierce commitment to protecting the interests of oil producing countries.”

President Buhari recalled that “the 1973 oil embargo drew world attention to the tremendous influence of Yamani in the affairs of the oil cartel.”

“Whether you love him or loathe him, there is no denying the fact that Zaki Yamani was a powerful force in OPEC affairs who commanded respect and admiration of friends and foes alike,” he said of the late Saudi Oil Minister.

The President added that “as one of the younger Oil Ministers representing their countries at OPEC, I was awed and inspired by Yamani’s remarkable leadership skills and diplomatic finesse.”

He described Yamani as a lucky man who survived terrorist captivity after being taken hostage by the notorious terrorist ‘Carlos the Jackal’ in 1973.

President Buhari extended his condolences to King Salman, the Custodian of the two Holy Mosques and the government of Saudi Arabia over what he called “this immense loss of a world statesman and consummate Oil Minister.”

RIWAMA Sole Administrator, Bro Felix Obuah Condoles With Nsirim Family

The Sole Administrator of Rivers State Waste Management Agency, (RIWAMA), Bro Felix Obuah has described late Mama Victoria Wejionwu Nsirim, the first wife of Nyenwe-Eli O.N. Nsirim, the Apiti of Rumueme, and Paramount Ruler of Rumueme Kingdom as a virtuous woman who lived a worthy and fulfilled life before her transition.

Bro Obuah made the remark when he paid a condolence visit to the Nsirim family to commiserate with them on the death of the matriarch of Rumueme Kingdom, and mother of Prince Timothy Nsirim, former executive chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, and now chairman Rivers State Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Agency.

The RIWAMA boss said though late Mama Victoria Nsirim transited at the ripe age of 93, her demise is painful and has created a vacuum very difficult to fill in the lives of her beloved ones.

He enjoined the bereaved family to take solace in the good works and legacies of their late mother, describing the death of the matriarch as the final awakening rather than the final step.

Bro Obuah said the best that could be done in this circumstance for the deceased was to keep her memory alive by activating her good works and legacies for the benefit of posterity.

He prayed the good Lord to grant the entire Nsirim family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss, and the soul of late Mama Victoria Nsirim peaceful rest.

In his response, Prince Timothy Nsirim on behalf of the bereaved family thanked the RIWAMA Sole Administrator, Bro Felix Obuah for the visit. Prince Nsirim described Bro Obuah as a big brother who has always identified with the family at times of need, and prayed God to also show him and his family love and concern.

Rivers State: Soot And The Dangers Of Its Emission, A Call For Action, By Nwaorgu Faustinus

Rivers State: Soot And The Dangers Of Its Emission, A Call For Action, By Nwaorgu Faustinus

A clean, pure, healthy environment and atmospheric air or rather oxygen that we human beings take in on a daily basis plays an important role in the longevity and good health we as human beings enjoy. However, the opposite could be said of a milieu or an environment which is polluted with soot.

Few years ago in Rivers State, there was massive reportage on the issue at hand – dangers of soot, otherwise known as “Particle Pollution” called PM 2.5—particulate matter that is 2.5 micrometers in diameter or smaller. Recently, many residents residing in Port Harcourt, Rivers State have taken to some social media platforms and groups to raise their voice regarding the soot palaver and the danger it poses if left unchecked.

Soot can be defined as a deep black powdery or flaky substance consisting largely of amorphous carbon produced by the incomplete burning of organic matter. It can also be said to be a byproduct of burning fossil fuels, particularly coal. It is emitted by a variety of sources, including burning coal for electricity or industrial fuel, manufacturing, oil refining, and motor vehicles. Soot is released into the air as either extremely small particles or liquid droplets.

It (soot) contains a number of pollutants, not limited to chemicals only, but also acids, metals, soils, and dust, which are hung up in the air after emission. Soot can come in solid, liquid, or gaseous states but for the purpose of this piece, I shall limit myself to the “deep black powdery” substance and its inherent danger, effect and harm to human life and health.

Particle Pollution does pose great harms to public health, particularly because of its size. Because of the tiny nature of particulate matter, it can easily enter our lungs and bloodstream, thereby causing damage in a number of ways.

According to a U S governmental Agency, Environmental Protection Agency EPA, with its headquarters in Washington DC averred that “Microscopic particles can penetrate deep into the lungs and have been linked to a wide range of serious health effects, including premature death, heart attacks, and strokes, as well as acute bronchitis and aggravated asthma among children.”

For the American Lung Association, breathing particle pollution can potentially cause “cancer and developmental and reproductive harm.”

It is as a result of the above harm associated with soot that an advocacy group which goes by the name Citizens Quest for Truth Initiative CQTI through its National President, Chief Obiaruko Christy Ndukwe said,“Everyone who lives or sleeps in Rivers State, particularly in Port Harcourt and its environs are daily inhaling the black soot, a hazardous byproduct of illegal oil bunkering and local refining of crude.

“I will in my subsequent posts elucidate the side effects of this silent and slow killer which pervades the entire atmosphere.

“In spite of several protests and calls by civil society groups led by the likes of Eugene Abels and others, the two Governments-Federal and State have kept mute while those predisposed to respiratory infections not excluding the deadly Covid virus are daily subjected to slow death!

“It’s about time we push for a solution to this either through better ways of engaging in the brisk business of local refineries in order to save the atmosphere and in turn the masses.

 

“Not everyone can afford a humidifier just as the majority do not even know of its importance.

#StopBlackSoot and #SaveRiversLives at Citizens Quest for Truth Initiative.”

The above situation calls for urgent affirmative action on the part of the Federal and State government to contain, stop and minimize to the lowest level all actions or activities such as illegal oil bunkering and local refining of crude that give rise to soot emission in Rivers State.

Making appropriate legislation by both governments that will ensure clean air, enable the building of modular refineries, obliterate all forms of illegal oil bunkering and local refining of crude will definitely serve as the right step in the right direction towards confronting soot emission. There is no other better time to act if not now.

The health and life of every Rivers State resident matters.

$500m: SERAP asks World Bank to publish documents on funded electricity projects

 

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged the World Bank President Mr David Malpass “to exercise the Bank’s prerogative to release archival records and documents relating to spending on all approved funds to improve access to electricity in Nigeria between 1999 and 2020, the Bank’s role in the implementation of any funded electricity projects, and to identify and name any executed projects, and Nigerian officials, ministries, departments and agencies involved in the execution of such projects.”

The World Bank Board of Directors had last week approved $500m “to help boost access to electricity in Nigeria and improve the performance of the electricity distribution companies in the country.”

But in the application dated 6 February 2021, and signed by SERAP deputy director Kolawole Oluwadare, the organization urged the Bank to “explain the rationale for the approval of $500m to implement electricity projects in the country, despite reports of widespread and systemic corruption in the sector, and the failure of the authorities to enforce a court judgment ordering the release of details of payments to allegedly corrupt electricity contractors who failed to execute any projects.”

SERAP said: “This application is brought pursuant to the World Bank’s Access to Information Policy, which aims to maximize access to information and promote the public good. There is public interest in Nigerians knowing about the Bank’s supervisory role and specifically its involvement in the implementation of electricity projects, which it has so far funded.”

According to SERAP, “The $500m is part of the over one billion dollars available to Nigeria under the project titled: Nigeria Distribution Sector Recovery Program. We would be grateful for details of any transparency and accountability mechanisms under the agreement for the release of funds, including whether there is any provision that would allow Nigerians and civil society to monitor the spending of the money by the government, its agencies, and electricity distribution companies.”

SERAP also said: “Should the Bank fail and/or refuse to release the information and documents as requested, SERAP would file an appeal to the Secretariat of the Bank’s Access to Information Committee to challenge any such decision, and if it becomes necessary, to the Access to Information Appeals Board. SERAP may also consider other legal options outside the Bank’s Access to Information framework.”

The letter copied to Shubham Chaudhuri, World Bank Country Director for Nigeria, read in part: “SERAP believes that releasing the information and documents would enable Nigerians and civil society to meaningfully engage in the implementation of electricity projects funded by the Bank, contribute to the greater public good, and enhance the Bank’s oft-stated commitment to transparency and accountability.”

“The World Bank has been and continues to be involved in overseeing the transfer, disbursement, spending of funds on electricity projects in Nigeria. The Bank also reportedly approved a $750 million loan for Nigeria’s electricity sector in June 2020 to cut tariff shortfalls, protect the poor from price adjustments, and increase power supply to the grid. As such, the World Bank is not a neutral party in this matter.”

“SERAP is seriously concerned that the funds approved by the Bank are vulnerable to corruption and mismanagement. The World Bank has a responsibility to ensure that the Nigerian authorities and their agencies are transparent and accountable to Nigerians in how they spend the approved funds for electricity projects in the country, and to reduce vulnerability to corruption and mismanagement.”

“SERAP also believes that the release of the requested information and documents is of paramount important to the public interest in preserving the legitimacy, credibility and relevance of the Bank as a leading international development institution. The Bank ought to lead by example in issues such as transparency and public disclosure raised in this request.”

“It would also demonstrate that the Bank is willing to put people first in the implementation of its development and governance policies and mandates, as well as remove any suspicion of the Bank’s complicity in the alleged mismanagement of electricity projects-related funds.”

“The information is also being sought to improve the ongoing fight against corruption in the country and the provision of regular and uninterrupted electricity supply to Nigerians as a fundamental human right.”

“The information requested is not affected by the “deliberative” “corporate administrative matters” or “security and safety” exceptions under the Policy. The information requested is crucially required for Nigerians to know how the funds released to the authorities to improve electricity supply in the country have been spent, and monitor how the funds are being used.”

“SERAP’s report, titled: From darkness to darkness: How Nigerians are paying the price for corruption in the electricity sector documents widespread and systemic corruption in the electricity sector, and reveals how about N11 trillion electricity fund was squandered by successive administrations in Nigeria since the return of democracy in 1999.”

“This report raises specific questions of public interest, and the World Bank ought to be concerned about how Nigerian authorities are addressing reports of widespread and systemic corruption in the electricity sector, and to seek some answers from the authorities on the problems.”

“However, as the report shows, the Bank’s funding of the electricity sector has not resulted in corresponding access of Nigerians to regular and uninterrupted electricity supply. Successive governments have failed to provide access to regular and reliable electricity supply to millions of the citizens despite budgeting trillions of naira for the power sector.”

“Millions of Nigerians still lack access to free pre-paid meters. Authorities continue to use patently illegal and inordinate estimated billing across the country, increasing consumer costs, and marginalizing Nigerians living in extreme poverty, disproportionately affecting women, children and the elderly.”

SERAP therefore urged Mr Malpass to:

 

  1. Disclose and release information and documents relating to spending of funds approved and released to Nigeria between 1999 and 2020 to improve access to regular and uninterrupted electricity supply, including copies of supervision reports, periodic reviews and other appropriate reports on the Bank’s role in the spending and disbursement of the funds, as well as specific projects on which the funds have been spent;
  2. Disclose implementation status and results and completion reports on the electricity projects that the Bank has so far funded in Nigeria;
  3. Disclose information on the of level of involvement of World Bank in the implementation of electricity projects between 1999 and 2020;
  4. Disclose information on agreements and the mechanisms the Bank is putting in place to ensure transparency and accountability in the spending of all funds on electricity projects in Nigeria;
  5. Disclose the terms and conditions of all electricity projects related funds that have been approved for Nigeria between 1999 and 2020

ECOWAS Court to give judgment in SERAP’s case on killings by herdsmen, others

 

 

 

The ECOWAS Court of Justice, Abuja has this morning heard arguments in the case brought by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) against the Federal Government seeking “justice and accountability for the authorities’ failure to prevent, account for and investigate killings, raping, maiming of Nigerians and other residents, and destruction of property across the country by herdsmen and other unknown perpetrators.”

 

The Court adjourned the suit to 22 April, 2021 for judgment after hearing arguments from Solicitor to SERAP, Femi Falana SAN, and the government lawyer Mr Adedayo Ogundele.

 

In the suit No ECW/CCJ/APP/15/16, SERAP is arguing that, “the continuing attacks, killings, raping, maiming of Nigerians and other residents, and destruction of property by the military, police, herdsmen and other unknown perpetrators across the country amount to serious violations of human rights of the rights to life, to the security and dignity of the human person, and to property.”

 

Femi Falana, arguing the case, said: “The government has not denied the serious averments by SERAP. The government is responsible for the unlawful killings by herdsmen and other unknown perpetrators, which have not been adequately prevented, investigated or prosecuted by the authorities. These responsibilities are heightened when an observable pattern has been overlooked or ignored, such as is the case in this suit.”

 

Falana also argued: “The government has a responsibility to protect and ensure the security of life and property of everyone in Nigeria. It is not enough for the government to say that civil cases have been brought by some of the victims. The government has a responsibility to investigate, fish out the perpetrators and prosecute them, and to compensate the victims.”

 

The suit, reads in part: “SERAP also contends that the obligation to secure the right to life is not confined to cases where it has been established that the killings were caused by an agent of the State. Nor is it decisive whether those affected or their families have lodged a formal complaint about the killings with the competent investigatory authority.”

 

“It is contended that the mere knowledge of the killings by the military, police, herdsmen and other unknown perpetrators on the part of the authorities have ipso facto given rise to an obligation under Article 4 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights to carry out an effective investigation into the circumstances surrounding the killings and to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice, and to provide reparations to victims.”

 

“Moreover, the Defendant has a responsibility for those killings, raping maiming and destruction of property where authorities knew or ought to have known of an immediate threat and failed to take measures that might have been expected to avoid those attacks and killings.”

 

“SERAP further contends that the Defendant has positive obligations to provide a framework of security for the protection of life, and to protect the lives of those individuals at risk from unlawful attacks by the military, police, herdsmen and other unknown perpetrators. The lack of accountability for the attacks by the military, police, herdsmen and other unknown perpetrators across the country has continued to create a culture of impunity which clearly is not compatible with the rule of law in a democratic society.”

 

“SERAP contends that the Defendant has a positive obligation to take measures to secure the right to life, right to security and dignity of the human person and right to property, and to prevent attacks and killings by the military, police, herdsmen and other unknown perpetrators across Nigeria.”

 

“Human life has a special value and dignity which requires legal protection. It should be pointed out that those affected in the present case include the most disadvantaged and vulnerable sectors of society.”

 

“A fundamental notion of contemporary human rights law is that victims of violations enjoy an independent right to effective remedies. This idea is itself founded on another longstanding legal principle: ubi ius ibi remedium (there is no right without a remedy).”

 

SERAP therefore is asking the ECOWAS Court of Justice for the following reliefs:

 

  1.

  3. A DECLARATION that the failure of the Defendant to provide for an effective remedy and reparation for the victims, is unlawful as it amounts to breaches of obligations to respect, protect, promote and fulfil the human rights guaranteed under the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights to which Nigeria is a state party.
  4. A DECLARATION that the failure of the Defendant to provide an environment necessary for securing and promoting the enjoyment of the human rights to life, dignity and security of the person, and to property, is unlawful as it amounts to breaches of obligations to promote and fulfil the human rights guaranteed under the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights to which Nigeria is a state party.

EKITI STATE UNIVERSITY, LAGOS  STUDY CENTRE, IKOTUN EGBE: DEVELOPING THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS EMPLOYERS ARE LOOKING FOR

 

 

Y2021 BUDGET: LASG EXPLAINS INCREASED HEALTH SECTOR ALLOCATION, INTENSIFIES DEPLOYMENT OF TECHNOLOGY

 

The Lagos State Government has disclosed that the experience gained and lessons learnt, during the outbreak of Ebola and COVID-19 pandemic (first-wave) in the State, had prepared the present administration for the second wave of the disease, just as it also unveiled plans to deploy more technology to critical sectors to improve productivity and wellbeing of residents.

 

The Honourable Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi and Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr. Sam Egube, spoke about these issues on Wednesday, during a joint appearance on a TVC News programme titled: “Business Nigeria”.

 

Prof. Abayomi said the Y2021 budgetary allocation to the health sector was increased to address the challenges posed by the epidemic and other issues, stressing that the amount estimated for the sector was a significant improvement when compared to the allocation for the previous year.

 

He added that challenges of the second wave and community spread of the COVID-19 still remain a major hindrance to the present administration’s health sector objectives, noting that Lagos has the highest incidence of Coronavirus cases in Nigeria despite the increased level of sensitisation to educate residents on complying with safety protocols such as wearing face masks and physical distancing.

 

While decrying the flagrant disregard for all safety rules and regulations by a majority of Lagosians, the Commissioner averred that the high number of recorded cases is creating additional pressure on healthcare facilities in Lagos.

 

Speaking on the government’s resolve to ensure that the residents of Lagos have equal access to an enhanced healthcare delivery system, Abayomi urged citizens to take advantage of the benefits offered, through the Lagos State Health Insurance Scheme (LASHMA), by subscribing to the initiative.

 

“Healthcare is very expensive, but having the Health Insurance Scheme will drastically reduce the cost of medical care during visits to the hospital when ill. The Lagos Health Insurance Scheme was designed specifically to reduce the financial cost of healthcare on all residents in the State and it is advisable for Lagosians to subscribe to the scheme”, he advised.

 

On his part, the Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr. Sam Egube, said the spending plan for Y2020 turned out well, as the year closed with a budget performance rate of 88%, stressing that the Y2021 Budget focusses on Human Capital, Education and Health sector in line with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led administration’s vision of building a 21stCentury Economy as encapsulated in the T.H.E.M.E.S development agenda

 

He averred that technology expenditure in this year’s budget witnessed an increased allocation as the government is investing heavily on infrastructure which will cover about 3000-kilometres in form of a broadband ring around the State, as part of efforts to achieve the smart-city initiative of the present administration.

 

The Commissioner said, “In the 2021 Budget, technology allocation has increased dramatically due to the broadband infrastructure that includes the laying of 3000-kilometres broadband around Lagos. In addition, we are putting up a smart city initiative for security because if the people are healthy and educated but feel unsafe, then they will still be unproductive”.

 

Egube explained that the broadband security infrastructure would allow the government to install 2000 intelligent cameras having facial and number plate recognition, which will be monitored at a command centre for enhanced security in Lagos, adding that this initiative will also be extended to the health sector through the digitisation of medical records and access to medical care on the State’s telemedicine platform.

World Cancer Day: We’re committed to establishing a cancer treatment center – Akeredolu

 

  • ’We Have Prioritised The Well-being Of Our Women’

 

  • The Entry Point To Fighting Cancer is Awareness- Mrs Akeredolu

 

Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has called for a concerted effort by all stakeholders in the fight against cancer in the state, stressing that evidence has shown that more than one-third of cancer cases can be prevented and another one third can be cured if detected early and treated properly.

 

Governor Akeredolu also reiterated the commitment of his administration to establishing a cancer treatment centre in the state before the end of his second term in office.

 

He noted that a Hope-lodge for out-patients and survivors will also be built to ease the stress of those caring for cancer patients.

 

On her part, the First Lady, Arabinrin Betty Anyawu Akeredolu has identified awareness as the entry point to the fight against cancer.

 

Governor Akeredolu and his wife spoke at the Launch of Ondo 2021 Breast and Cervical Cancer Project (Awareness For 21000) held at the Rotunda, Government House, Alagbaka, Akure on Thursday, February 4, 2021.

 

The theme for the 2021 World Cancer Day is “I am And I Will”.

 

According to the Governor:” It has been generally claimed that over 10 million people die each year from cancer globally.That is more than HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis combined! It is projected by experts that by 2030 cancer deaths will rise to 13 million if we do not act.”

 

Arakunrin Akeredolu disclosed that as part of the efforts towards raising awareness, the State Government, through the Ministry of Health, is collaborating with well-meaning organizations who are driven by the same passion to help disabuse the myth around cancer as being a “spiritual attack”.

 

“Therefore, Ondo 2021 Breast and Cervical Cancer Project -Awareness for 21000 is a collaborative effort between Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria (BRECAN) and Ondo State Ministry of Health geared towards implementing appropriate strategies for prevention, early detection and prompt treatment so that we can together prevent deaths of cancer patients across the 18 Local Government Areas in Ondo State.“the Governor said.

 

He noted that his administration has prioritised the wellbeing of women and also committed to it through various programmes meant to enhance their quality of life, both health-wise and economically.

 

The Governor stated that there is more knowledge about cancer through investing in research and innovation, adding that there is a need for commitment by all in the fight against breast and cervical cancers.

 

“When we come together to speak with one voice and take action together, then we shall accomplish the goal of reducing the mortality that may arise from breast and cervical cancers”. Governor Akeredolu said.

 

Governor Akeredolu commended BRECAN for the approach it has adopted to reach 21,000 women across Ondo State.

 

He said: “I do not doubt that this will have a positive impact, more so that it will encourage more women who will voluntarily come for screening. The First Lady’s commitment towards fighting against breast cancer in the State cannot be overemphasized in terms of her continuous drive by educating, promoting awareness and consistently providing informational and emotional support to newly diagnosed patients and survivors.

 

Gov Wike’s Extraordinary Personality Of The Year  Award:

Why I’m Excited – Obuah

 

Bro Felix Obuah, Sole Administrator of Rivers State Waste Management Agency, RIWAMA, has lauded the nomination of Governor Nyesom Wike by the management of Silverbird Group as the Extraordinary Personality of the year, 2020, describing it as most deserving.

The RIWAMA boss said Gov Wike has impacted all sectors of the state economy that has become difficult to pin his developmental strides to a particular area.

He noted that never in the annals of the political history of the state, have various sectors witnessed such a massive infrastructural development as is presently the case.

“This is a particular instance when all stakeholders including the opposition are agreed sentiments apart, that the Governor has done marvelously well. Rivers people are happy, the ruling party in the state is excited and impressed, and the opposition confounded. This is what is called visionary and people-oriented leadership”, Bro Obuah declared.

The RIWAMA boss said he is happier because it was under his leadership of the party that the bold choice of Governor Wike was made which according to him has been justified as the best decision ever.

The revolutions in the health, agricultural and education sectors, the strings of flyovers scattered all over the strategic points in Port Harcourt to decongest the seeming insurmountable traffic situation for easy movement into and out of the busy roads and streets of Port Harcourt, the State capital are all eloquent testimonies of Gov Wike’s quality leadership which have continued to speak for him, he further noted.

Bro Obuah also commended the vision and boldness of the Silverbird Group to single out Gov Wike for the honour in acknowledgement of his bravery, openness, fearlessness and landmark achievements in Rivers State.

The RIWAMA Sole Administrator believes the well deserved award to His Excellency will spur him to do more since the best reward for hard work is more work.

He enjoined all Rivers people irrespective of party affiliation to rally round the Governor in his commitment to put Rivers State back on the path of progress, faith in their leaders, hope for the youths and peace across the state by praying and supporting his novel policies and programmes aimed at repositioning the State.

Bro Obuah congratulated His Excellency for the feat and wished him greater breakthroughs in the years ahead.

Niger Delta leaders predict economic buoyancy

Night Delta leaders predict economic buoyancy

· Make case for Buhari’s administration

· Commend Sylva for creating 35,000 Jobs in Bayelsa State

Some prominent leaders in the Niger Delta region on Monday urged Nigerians to encourage the government of President Muhammadu Buhari in its efforts to create jobs, develop the oil rich Niger Delta region and tackle youth unemployment in the country.

The eminent leaders also praised President Buhari for his resolve to make the lives of all Nigerians better.

In a statement in Yenagoa, capital of Bayelsa State, the leaders praised the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva for going the extra mile, using his good office to pursue the Niger Delta cause and helping the business image of Nigeria in the international scene.

‘’Certainly, Chief Timipre Sylva has further shown that his politics is driven by character, integrity and development’’ the leaders said.

They emphasized the country’s vast endowments, revenue generation, supports for gas based industries and import substitution for methanol needs of the nation.
