PRESIDENT TINUBU TO 36 STATE GOVERNORS: THERE MUST BE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR INCOMPETENCE; SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS TO BOOST FOOD PRODUCTION AND REMOVE RENT SEEKERS

President Bola Tinubu says his administration is evolving home-grown solutions to address the nation’s food security challenges by setting up schemes to support local production and discourage all forms of rent-seeking that are associated with food importation.

The President made the declaration at a meeting with 36 state governors, attended by Vice-President Kashim Shettima, the National Security Adviser, the Inspector-General of Police, the Director-General of the DSS, and some ministers at the State House in Abuja on Thursday.

On security, President Tinubu approved the establishment of a committee comprising state governors and representatives of the federal government to, among other things, explore the modalities for establishing state police.

 

The President further endorsed the training and equipping of forest rangers by sub-national governments to safeguard human and natural resources in local communities.

 

”My position at this meeting is that we must move aggressively and establish a committee to look critically at the issues raised, including the possibility of establishing state police.

 

”From Kano, we have read reports about large-scale hoarding of food in some warehouses. The National Security Adviser (NSA), the Inspector-General of Police, and the Director-General of the Department of State Services should coordinate very closely and ensure that security agencies in the states inspect such warehouses with follow up action.

 

”We must ensure that speculators, hoarders, and rent seekers are not allowed to sabotage our efforts in ensuring the wide availability of food to all Nigerians.

 

”What I will not do is to set a price control board. I will not also approve the importation of food. We should be able to get ourselves out of the situation we found ourselves in, because importation will allow rent seekers to perpetrate fraud and mismanagement at our collective expense. We would rather support farmers with the schemes that will make them go to the farm and grow more food for everyone in the country.

 

”We must also look at the rapid but thoughtful implementation of our livestock development and management plans, including dairy farming and others,” the President stated.

 

President Tinubu urged the governors to trust the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) with the management of the country’s monetary policy, emphasizing the importance of allowing designated institutions to fulfill their mandate effectively.

 

He said the ”cacophony of postulations” on the fluctuation of foreign exchange rates was unduly affecting the market negatively.

 

”Every one of us can not be an expert. If we have given someone an assignment, let us allow them to do it. If they can not do it, then we find a way to quickly get them out of the system,” the President affirmed.

 

President Tinubu asked the governors to always make the welfare and prosperity of the people a priority of their development programmes, assuring them that the federal government will continue to work diligently to improve the nation’s revenue profile.

 

At the meeting, the President and the governors emphasized the importance of working together to address issues of insecurity, food security, and out-of-school children.

 

Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) expressed appreciation to President Tinubu for convening the meeting and affirmed the governors’ commitment to partnering closely with the federal government.

Aviation Minister Explores Partnerships at Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh

 

 

Advertisment

The Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo SAN CON FCIarb (UK), is actively engaging with Middle East aviation leaders at the ongoing Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Hosted at the prestigious King Abdulaziz International Conference Center (KAICC), the forum marks a pivotal moment for global aviation collaboration.

At the behest of His Excellency Jassim Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti, Minister of Transport of the State of Qatar, and His Excellency Saleh Al-Jasser, Minister of Transport and Logistics of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Aviation Minister convened on the sidelines to deepen ties between Nigeria and the Middle East in the realm of air transportation and logistics.

The third edition of the Future Aviation Forum, themed “Elevating Global Connectivity,” underscores the importance of fostering innovation, sustainable air travel, and cultural exchange. By bringing together leaders from the aviation sector and adjacent industries, the forum serves as a catalyst for knowledge exchange and business opportunities in a dynamic economic sector.

Keyamo expressed gratitude to Minister Al-Sulaiti for his keen interest in Nigeria, affirming Nigeria’s openness to investment in civil aviation and other sectors of the economy. Emphasizing the importance of learning from Qatar’s success in airline operations, particularly exemplified by the global acclaim of Qatar Airways, the Minister sought collaboration to enhance Nigeria’s aviation sector.

A key proposal made by the Nigeria Aviation Minister involves encouraging Qatar Airways to patronize local catering services on its return trips to Doha from Nigeria. This initiative aligns with the principles of reciprocity outlined in the Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) and aims to stimulate Nigeria’s local economy.

As the Future Aviation Forum continues until May 22, 2024, the Minister remains committed to forging strategic partnerships that will elevate Nigeria’s aviation industry on the global stage.

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy On Chad Presidential Election Comes To Pass

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy On Chad Presidential Election Comes To Pass

 

Advertisment

 

The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has yet again been celebrated for the fulfillment of his prophecy on the just concluded Chad presidential election.

Advertisment

The election saw the incumbent head of state, Idriss Deby becoming victorious.

Chad’s state election body said interim President Mahamat Idriss Deby won the 6 May presidential election outright with over 61 per cent of the vote, citing provisional results, even as his main challenger declared himself the winner.

This is in fulfillment of Primate Ayodele’s prophecy which he repeatedly shared about the outcome of the presidential election. Several prophecies of Primate Ayodele about Chad have come to pass already and the victory of Idriss Deby is just an addition to them.

Most recent of his prophecy regarding the election was the one he shared earlier this month, a few days about the election making it known that the interim leader would win the election but there will be more issues to contend with in his administration.

Just like in his previous prophecies, Primate Ayodele assured Deby of victory in the election but warned him to be careful of attacks and attempt to truncate his government.

These were his words

‘’In Chad, Idriss will win the election but there will be a gang up against him. There will be attempts to truncate his government, despite the fact that his government will have international backings. He has good intentions but there will be complications politically.’’

In earlier prophecies, Primate Ayodele revealed that the election would favor the interim leader and that some opposition leaders would be disqualified from participating in the election. The prophet’s prophecy came through with the barring of some candidates.

‘’Chad: there will be political rowdiness, they will want to disqualify some candidates and there will be electoral violation. Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno will still have an edge except there’s a coalition. He will have an edge over other candidates. They should pray against the crisis during and after the election. New terrorist will come up in Chad, they will face a bigger security challenges.’’

Also, in a video interview, the prophet advised an opposition candidate, Succes Masra not to waste his money because the ruling party will win.

‘’Idriss will win, I am seeing Masra Succes wasting his money and energy, the ruling party will win’’

Thank you Queen Mother!

Please can you tell us about Olokun ?

Let me introduce who Olokun is to you!
The name OLOKUN is derived from the word “OLO” meaning “OWNER” and “OKUN” meaning “OCEAN “.The ALMIGHTY GOD is the creator and owner of the ocean but placed a powerful Angel in charge(the head of the ocean who worships the most High GOD,the ALMIGHTY GOD and the GOD of the Universe OLODUMARE, OSANOBWA, CHINEKE,UBANGIDI,OGHENEetc.At the beginning of the creation of the world GOD created Okun(Ocean)n GOD rested in it.It is a miracle, powerful and healing water.GOD gave the Angel incharge unmatchable wisdom.He made Her govern over dreams, wealth, prosperity,meditation and healing.
GOD gave the Angel authority over all the water on earth.Infact because of the authority given to her by GOD ALMIGHTY She can transmit good health, wealth and prosperity to GOD s followers(those who worship only GOD ALMIGHTY )and members of Olokun faith(Olokun 1 members).
The light of GOD ALMIGHTY is in the Ocean,that is why so many people worship HIM in front of the Ocean.We Olokun 1 members believe in one GOD and we do not worship idols.GOD demands men to worship and esteem HIM as the only one and true GOD.D Angel/ruler/Queen of the Ocean worship s GOD who placed her there.In the olden days because of lack of education and civilization,the people who called themselves OLOKUN worshipers could not really pass a proper divine message about OLOKUN (GOD ALMIGHTY)to the people.They saw the amazing power of the Ocean as GOD’S n called it name an African word for GOD(OLOKUN).They were actually worshiping GOD in a way they understood it.l am the one sent by the ALMIGHTY GOD to pass a message to the world that we should worship only one GOD,the ALMIGHTY through OLOKUN faith or others.
