Buhari/Osinbajo Ticket remains the best Option for 2019 Says Group

Buhari/Osinbajo Ticket remains the best Option for 2019 Says Group


The Patriotic Conscience for New Nigeria, a civil society organization, has lauded the performance of vice president Yemi Osinbajo at the Vice Presidential debate which held in Abuja yesterday. 


In a statement made available to newsmen and signed by its national coordinator, Salisu Mohammed Sani, the group stated that the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket remains the best option for Nigeria given the myriads of achievements the present administration has recorded in the past three years.

“From the performance of the vice president, it becomes obvious that Nigeria is indeed on the path to greatness when compared to the 16 inglorious years of PDP misrule that indeed set the country back donkey years.” 

The statement further stated that for the PDP vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi to state that “Nigeria is in the current situation because of lack of jobs, and Atiku Abubakar is a man that could deliver on this and bring Nigeria out of the misery if elected” is most uncharitable and a clear indication that Peter Obi is either ignorant of the ignoble role Atiku Abubakar played in ruining the economy of Nigeria between 1999 – 2007 while he was vice president and head of the economic management team”

“For Peter Obi to assume that Atiku Abubakar can deliver and bring Nigeria out of its economic misery is nothing but an indication that history is indeed in short supply and how gullible he thinks Nigerians are. This is on the heels that Nigerians are in the know of the atrocities committed against Nigeria by Atiku Abubakar who as head of the Economic management team enriched his pocket and that of his cronies.” 

“Peter Obi would want to tell Nigerians why former president Olusegun Obasanjo fell out with Atiku Abubakar between 2003 and 2007 when he, Obasanjo realized how Atiku Abubakar abused the trust reposed on him by engaging in acts inimical to the progress of Nigeria. Perhaps the recent statement by former president Olusegun Obasanjo that “If I support Atiku for a political office other than the one I supported him in the past when I did not know him, maybe, but not now that I know him, God will not forgive me.”

“To, therefore, imagine that the same man who is renowned for questionable means and was in power for eight years in now suddenly the messiah that Nigeria needs beats common sense.  It goes further to corroborate the fact the Atiku/Obi ticket is not in tandem with present realities either by omission or commission which the true enemies of Nigeria are. This debate has indeed confirmed the true motives of the agents of the PDP that sees Nigeria as their cash cow that must be milked to death, to say the least.”

The Patriotic Conscience for New Nigeria reiterated the need for Nigerians to look beyond the deceitful product that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is trying to sell to members of the unsuspecting public.  “A leopard cannot change its skin. The worst years in the annals Nigeria were from 1999 to 2015, and this much can be verified by the discerning mind and those that have the interest of the country at heart.”

“Since 2015, when President Muhammadu Buhari assumed leadership of the country, Nigeria has witnessed phenomenal growth and development. This much was corroborated by the brilliant outing of vice president Yemi Osinbajo in the vice presidential debate where he reeled out the numerous achievements of the Muhammadu Buhari led administration. For instance, Nigeria’s SMEs have grown consistently since the administration came on board, with several policies specifically targeted at SMEs at several institutions currently underway.”

“We are therefore not surprised with the illogical postulations of Peter Obi whose history is akin to that of a salesman who would go the extra mile to sell a product to members of the unsuspecting public to make ends meet not minding whose ox is gored. But Nigerians are wiser and not fooled by the antics of “businessmen” who see things from the prism of their selfish interest.”

“The Patriotic Conscience for New Nigeria is of the opinion that the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket is in the interest of Nigeria and capable of leading Nigeria to the promised land and the best option for 2019."

both of FBRA; at the opening ceremony of the two-day NESREA 12th National
Stakeholders’ Forum held at the Nicon Luxury Hotel, Abuja, on December 11, 2018.
The Food and Beverage Recycling Alliance (FBRA) has emphasised that recycling of waste, especially those of food and beverage packaging is vital in environmental preservation as the value chain in the recycling process leads to job and wealth creation.

According to FBRA Vice Chairman, Adekunle Olusuyi, who spoke at the two-day 12th National Stakeholders’ Forum of the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA) in Abuja on Thursday, the Alliance has been intensifying awareness on separation of waste and environmental pollution, especially on post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles which can further be recycled to other useful products.

Olusuyi, who attended the forum with other FBRA members, explained that FBRA participation in the summit was in line with the Alliance's commitment to the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) policy of government, to help build a sustainable healthy environment that leads to business growth.

“We are looking at the entire packaging lifecycle – from how bottles and cans are designed and made, to how they are recycled and repurposed.  We want to reduce the waste we generate as much as possible, encourage recycling, and our initiatives in this regard has been well tailored in achieving tangible results along with our partners,” he stated.

The stakeholders’ forum, which had the theme, Circular Economy and Environmental Governance, provided a platform for an in-depth discussion and array of issues focusing on Circular Economy and Environmental Governance, as well as critical factor in attaining sustainable development in the national development plan.

It also enabled stakeholders highlight waste-to-wealth initiatives, review progress in the implementation of the EPR programme, strengthen policies and regulations to enable the recycling of food grade packaging waste materials by establishing a national standards for recycled PET and determine how Producer Responsibility Organisations (PRO) can support  in waste management for a healthy environment, recycling roles, among others.

The FBRA vice chairman avowed that in a circular economy, proper waste management which involves different stages leads to job and wealth creation along the value chain.

According to Olusuyi, recent survey indicates that the volume of post-consumer PET waste is over 800,000 tonnes which requires participation of all stakeholders at the different stages to drive a robust circular economy.

“The various roles in waste management starts from waste separation, collection which our partner, RecyclePoints takes care of, to separation, transportation, shredding at the recycling plants, production of other products and re-use. At these stages, different jobs are created, whether directly or indirectly,” Olusuyi explained.

He therefore urged other companies in the food and beverage sector, to be part of the Alliance which has sworn in its resolve to protect the environment and help make the world packaging problem a thing of the past.

In moving towards a circular economy, the Technical Lead, FBRA, Nwamaka Onyemelukwe, who represented the Chairman, Sade Morgan pointed out that the Alliance, as a PRO, will help improve recycling rates and apply the global marketing muscle of its members to help educate the public on what, how and where to recycle their food and beverage packaging waste. 

The Alliance will continue to partner with local communities, non-government organisations (NGOs), industry peers and consumers to help make recycling easier and more accessible for everyone by improving collection systems, local recycling systems and driving policy change that supports a truly circular economy.

“As part of FBRA ambitious goal towards a cleaner environment, it has concluded plans to clean up the waterways in collaboration with its partner, RecyclePoints and the Ministries of Transportation as well as Environment in Lagos state, she said.

Onyemelukwe added that with an estimated annual growth rate of 2.6 percent in Nigeria, there is increase in the level of consumption which has translated to rise in the volume of waste generation that needs to be well tackled; hence FBRA has been embarking on various initiatives towards a cleaner environment.

Recently, the Alliance received accolades from the Lagos State Government through the Ministry of the Environment during a clean-up exercise at the Arena Market in Oshodi, Lagos, in commemoration of this year’s World Cleanup Day.

Founded in 2013, FBRA consist of responsible forward-thinking companies with a shared concern for the environment which includes; Nigerian Bottling Company Limited/ Coca-Cola Nigeria Limited; Nigerian Breweries Plc; Seven-Up Bottling Company Limited; Nestle Nigeria Plc and Guinness Nigeria Plc.

Shola Shoretire, a Nigerian-born 14 years old Manchester United's wonder kid Shola Shoretire has become the youngest ever player to appear in the Uefa Youth League at the age of 14 years and 314 days.

Shoretire came off the bench in Man United U19’s 2-1 Uefa Youth Cup win over Valencia on Wednesday, also making him the youngest player to feature in the competition to date at the age of 14 years and 314 days.

The Red Devils went into the game with four wins and a draw behind them and came about against Group H’s bottom side at Estadio Antonio Puchades.

It was the hosts, however, who came flying out of the blocks and enjoyed the lion’s share of both possession and chances in the opening exchanges.

The winger has already been called up to a U23 training camp in Austria over the summer, with Man United coaches describing Shoretire as an ‘exceptional talent‘ and has now taken the next step on what looks to be a promising career.

Shoretire has trained with England youth sides in recent years but is also eligible to play international football for Nigeria.

2019: Another Minister Resigns From Buhari's Cabinet

By Dansu Peter

Muhammadu Buhari
AHEAD of 2019 general election, the Minister of State for Environment Ibrahim Jubril has resigned from the Federal Cabinet to become the new Emir of Nasarawa.

Jubril is the fifth minister to resign from President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet since he assumed office in 2015.

Before now, Hajiya Amina Mohammed had earlier resigned on February 24, 2017, following her appointment at the United Nations as Deputy Secretary General. She served as a minister from November 11, 2015 to December 15, 2016.

Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, also resigned as the minister of solid minerals development on May 30, 2018, to pursue his political ambition.

On September 14, the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, resigned her appointment, following the scandal that trailed her forged National Youth Service Commission (NYSC) exemption certificate.

Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Senator Aisha Alhassan, also known as Mama Taraba, resigned from the cabinet and from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Alhassan hinged her resignation on her disqualification at the screening for the 2019 Taraba State governorship contest by the APC National Working Committee.

A valedictory session was held yesterday in honour of the new Emir as he turned up dressed in his turban for the Federal Executive Council (FEC), presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was declared Emir on Friday, December 7, following his selection by the Nasarawa Emirate Council and subsequent approval by Governor Tanko Umaru Al-Makura. President Buhari has, in a tweet, by His media aide, Bashir Ahmad, congratulated Jibril on his new appointment.

2019: 500 Fayose's Men Move To APC In Ekiti, Promise To Work For Buhari

2019: 500 Fayose's Men Move To APC In Ekiti, Promise To Work For Buhari

By Dansu Peter

FAYOSE AND AREGBESOLA
About 500 defectors including political appointees and elected officials in the first and second term of the immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Mr  Ayodele Fayose have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State.

The defectors who are mostly political officials in the local government who served in Fayose’s governments between 2003  and 2007; and  2014 and 2018 were received on behalf of Governor Kayode Fayemi and the leadership of Ekiti APC by the Speaker of the state’s House of Assembly, Mr Adeniran Alagbada.report according to Nigerian Tribune suggests

The new defectors promised to work for the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election and also work for the success of other APC candidates in the general election.   

Alagbada who had earlier defected to the APC shortly before the July 14 governorship election, assured that the new defectors would “be treated with respect in their new party.”

According to him, the APC operated “an open door policy,” which he said placed “equality in ranks and opportunities  between the old and new members.”

The Speaker added that all their outstanding  severance  allowances since  2003 will be paid in line with the promise made by Governor Fayemi,  this he said was part of the reasons  for the defection.

“I have spoken with Governor Fayemi, he had assured me that he will put a smile on your faces. You struggled hard under the PDP led government of Governor Fayose but nothing was done.

“But we have a Governor Fayemi who is responsive and responsible, he has listened to your plight and he was ready to fight for you. He is ready to pay your allowances in spite of the fact that  you are members of the opposition.

“When I met the governor, he told me that whether you defect or not that he would pay and that he had instructed the council bosses to begin the processes that would fasttrack the payment.

“Your defecting to APC only connotes that you believe in what Governor Fayemi has been doing. Within two weeks he assumed office, the governor abrogated the taxes being paid in state public and private primary and secondary schools and declared full free education up to secondary level.


“This is the kind of governor we must be electing in Ekiti. A governor that knows how to empower his people , not the one that would pauperise and enslave them the way Fayose did,” he said.

Speaking for the defectors, Kehinde Aduloju from Ado Local Government, said they were fascinated by Fayemi’s sterling leadership qualities to defect to the ruling party.

He regretted that all their days in the PDP had not really brought any political dividends to them, alleging that all the promises made for them under the immediate past administration were not fulfilled.

Aduloju said the APC would trounce the PDP in the next year’s election in the state, predicating this on the fact that those that matters in PDP have all decamped to the ruling party.

“Today, bigwigs like Senator Raji Rasaki, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, Alagbada, Gboyega Aribisogan, Sunday Akinniyi and many others are in APC. To us, PDP had become an empty camp with few relevant politicians to confront APC.

“We have resolved that wherever Governor Fayemi goes we shall follow him. He is one governor that has listening ears, he is receptive to corrections and even criticism.

“We have nothing to fear in APC because the way Prince Adeyeye was given the APC senatorial ticket few days after defection shows that APC remains a good party,” he stated.

Commercial, Promasidor Nigeria, Mario Russo, at the unveiling of SunVita 
Cereal, at the company’s head office, Lagos… Friday.
Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell Milk, Loya Milk, Miksi Milk, Onga seasoning, Top Tea and other quality food products, has unveiled Nigeria’s first zip-locked packaged ready-to-go cereal.

Speaking at the media unveiling held in Lagos on Friday, Managing Director of Promasidor Nigeria, Anders Einarsson, said 75 per cent of the product’s raw materials are sourced locally, reflecting the company’s robust backward integration programme.

According to Einarsson, the decision to look inward for raw materials is informed by the company’s desire to contribute to the growth of agricultural value chain. This, he said, would create massive employment opportunities and reduce capital flight.

He said: “The raw materials of SunVita is about 75 percent sourced locally. It demonstrates our commitment to backward integration and local capacity utilization in line with the economic need of the country. This will translate to more direct and indirect jobs for the youths as it will increase activities in agricultural value chain.”

Einarsson said SunVita would help working mothers and other people with tight schedules to manage their time better and achieve their career goals without compromising their health and nutritional requirements.  

“At Promasidor Nigeria, we understand the constraint on time; 24 hours are no longer enough for individuals to complete their daily routines, have fun and rest. Since we cannot increase the number of hours we have to work and play, we must continue to explore better ways of managing time. This is one of the ideas behind SunVita.

“Consumers need a quick, convenient meal that can be taken as a formal meal at home or as an energy-boosting snack during the day when they are away from home. And this need can be met without compromising their health. This is what SunVita has done. The cereal does not need cooking, which requires time and energy”, he said.

General Manager (Large Enterprise), Bank of Industry, Leonard Kange, who joined other dignitaries to tour the factory, said he was impressed with the investment. He said the company’s backward integration agenda was in line with the country’s industrial revolution roadmap. 

He noted: “The production process is fantastic. I am particular excited because I can see the product of our intervention. It is good to know that the fund we gave to Promasidor is invested in a project that will address key challenges facing Nigerians. 

“The investment is particularly relevant to the national industrial growth. About 75 per cent of the inputs used to manufacture the product is locally sourced. What does that imply? It means that Promasidor is not only providing direct jobs but also indirect jobs through suppliers of the inputs. That will helpd to grow the economy and reduce unemployment. I am extremely excited at the manner Promasidor has utilised the loan we gave them.”

Cereal, at the company’s head office, Lagos… Friday.
Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell Milk, Loya Milk, Miksi Milk, Onga seasoning, Top Tea and other quality food products, has unveiled Nigeria’s first zip-locked packaged ready-to-go cereal.

Speaking at the media unveiling held in Lagos on Friday, Managing Director of Promasidor Nigeria, Anders Einarsson, said 75 per cent of the product’s raw materials are sourced locally, reflecting the company’s robust backward integration programme.

According to Einarsson, the decision to look inward for raw materials is informed by the company’s desire to contribute to the growth of agricultural value chain. This, he said, would create massive employment opportunities and reduce capital flight.

He said: “The raw materials of SunVita is about 75 percent sourced locally. It demonstrates our commitment to backward integration and local capacity utilization in line with the economic need of the country. This will translate to more direct and indirect jobs for the youths as it will increase activities in agricultural value chain.”

Einarsson said SunVita would help working mothers and other people with tight schedules to manage their time better and achieve their career goals without compromising their health and nutritional requirements.  

“At Promasidor Nigeria, we understand the constraint on time; 24 hours are no longer enough for individuals to complete their daily routines, have fun and rest. Since we cannot increase the number of hours we have to work and play, we must continue to explore better ways of managing time. This is one of the ideas behind SunVita.

“Consumers need a quick, convenient meal that can be taken as a formal meal at home or as an energy-boosting snack during the day when they are away from home. And this need can be met without compromising their health. This is what SunVita has done. The cereal does not need cooking, which requires time and energy”, he said.

General Manager (Large Enterprise), Bank of Industry, Leonard Kange, who joined other dignitaries to tour the factory, said he was impressed with the investment. He said the company’s backward integration agenda was in line with the country’s industrial revolution roadmap. 

He noted: “The production process is fantastic. I am particular excited because I can see the product of our intervention. It is good to know that the fund we gave to Promasidor is invested in a project that will address key challenges facing Nigerians. 

“The investment is particularly relevant to the national industrial growth. About 75 per cent of the inputs used to manufacture the product is locally sourced. What does that imply? It means that Promasidor is not only providing direct jobs but also indirect jobs through suppliers of the inputs. That will helpd to grow the economy and reduce unemployment. I am extremely excited at the manner Promasidor has utilised the loan we gave them.”

President, Nutrition Society of Nigeria, Dr. Bartholomew Brai, commented on the nutritional contents of Sunvita, saying it would help in the cognitive development of children.
