It was all joy at the grand Finale when the seven-man dancing team,  known as @reflex_studio emerged the  grand prize winner and went home with a sum of one million naira, while @Prisca. ancient and @Blessing Essien emerged the first and second runners up winning a sum of five hundred thousand naira and two hundred thousand naira respectively.

Also showing appreciation to the organisers of the competition while congratulating the winners,  the brand  ambassador of Shal’Artem, popular comedian and skit maker,  Animashaun Perry,  better known as Broda Shaggi said; “Shalina deserves the commendation of all and sundry for creating great opportunity for the teeming Nigerian youths to showcase their talents. It is also good to note that the company is doing it in a spectacular way by creating awareness about a desease like malaria, which is generally taken for granted,  but  very deadly.  I congratulate all the winners and I say thanks to Shalina for spreading the message and the opportunity given to me to be part of it.”

 

Meanwhile in his welcome speech at the event, the Chief Commercial Officer Pharma Business West Africa, Shalina Healthcare Nigeria, Arun Raj described the company as a corporate entity that is poised to go the extra mile to give back to the people and provide opportunity for its consumers to achieve their dreams.

 

“The challenge is not  just about giving prizes but driving the purpose of ensuring talents are discovered and well rewarded. Ordinarily as a pharmaceutical company,  we shouldn’t have anything to do with an idea like this,  but we are raising the bar in corporate social responsibility.”  He said.

 

Speaking further, Arun said; malaria is one of the deadliest diseases in the world.  According to statistics, millions of people die of malaria in the world annually and ninety six  percent of the deaths are in Africa.. We are using this avenue to raise awareness and communicate to people on a better way to treat the disease using a 3 days dosage regimen of Shal’Artem, our brand of Antimalaria . We are therefore using Broda Shaggy’s popularity among the youth populace to create awareness and communicate this to the public. At Shalina our mission is to save lives. Today,  when people are talking about price increases everywhere, we at Shalina are reducing prices of our products. Our vision is to always provide quality medicine that are affordable and available across Africa”

Sahara Weekly Reports That Today, in a move to further revitalise the oil and gas industry’s contribution to the Nigerian Economy, Wale Edun, OFR, Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, presided over a signing ceremony at the Federal Ministry of Finance headquarters in Abuja endorsing the Consolidated Guidelines for the implementation of Fiscal Incentives for the Oil & Gas Sector – a cornerstone of the Presidential Directive aimed at enhancing the Nigerian oil & gas sector’s global competitiveness whilst stimulating economic growth.

As disclosed during the signing, the Presidential Directives were developed and coordinated by the Special Adviser to the President on Energy, Mrs. Olu Verheijen to ensure a competitive framework for the Nigerian oil & gas industry. These Consolidated guidelines for the fiscal incentives are based on extensive collaboration across Finance and Petroleum Ministries and involved several key regulatory bodies including the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC), and the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA).

 

According to Mrs. Verheijen, these new measures have been designed to deliver a competitive Internal Rate of Return (IRR) for Oil & Gas Projects and attract over $10 billion in new investments within the next 12-18 months. They also underscore Nigeria’s commitment to reaching its long term oil production target of 4 million barrels per day whilst enhancing the reliability of gas supply for to boost export earnings and fuel Nigeria’s industrialization.

 

Mrs. Verheijen disclosed that among the guidelines signed were the NUPRC Guideline on Hydrocarbon Liquids Content in a Non-Associated Gas (NAG) Field, essential for accurately categorising and quantifying the hydrocarbon liquid content in these fields. Additional guidelines focused on the applicability of tax credits and allowances for Non-Associated Gas Greenfield Development and the Midstream Capital and Gas Utilization Allowance, providing taxpayers with clarity on the computation of these benefits.

 

HM Edun, in his remarks, thanked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for signing the directive in February 2024 to engender growth in the Nigerian oil and gas sector, which had stagnated for over the last decade. He also emphasised the potential of the guidelines, saying, “The idea is to create an atmosphere conducive to international competitiveness such that investment comes in. And in this case, we know it’s foreign direct investment”.

 

The signing ceremony was attended by various stakeholders, including NNPC Limited, Oil Producers Trade Section (OPTS) and the Independent Petroleum Producers Group (IPPG), further highlighting Nigeria’s unified approach toward reinvigorating its oil and gas sector.
