COLONEL HAMEED ALI’S FIGHT TO RID THE NIGERIA CUSTOMS OF CORRUPTION

The recent directive by the Comptroller-General (CG) of Customs, Colonel Hameed Ali, to all officers and men of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to declare their assets within 14 days may have jolted some officers but it is not new. We are in the era of asset declaration as part of the fight against corruption. Men and officers of the Customs had been asked in the past to declare their assets in at least two occasions.

EXPLOSIVE OIL FIELDS OF NIGER DELTA

Recent bombings of oil pipelines in the Niger Delta again raise the spectre of escalation of conflicts in the region. While we cannot say the reasons for the incidents, it does appear to be calculated acts of sabotage rather than mere vandalism.

SENDING CORRUPT JUDGES TO JAIL

By his statement last week that the present administration has vowed to ensure that corrupt judges face criminal prosecution and forfeiture of assets, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has fired another salvo at the judiciary. Notwithstanding the many knocks on this arm of government, Malami’s frank and seemingly irreverent warning to an often regarded respectable class of judicial officers is bold and salutary.

WHY GOVERNMENT SHOULD RETHINK NIGERIA’S ECONOMIC BASE

President Muhammadu Buhari
The Nigerian economy is in dire straits with the potential to get worse if sound political and economic judgment is not brought to bear on the affairs of state. With the nation’s foreign reserve significantly depleted, a huge population and oil prices crashing daily for a mono-product economy like Nigeria’s, the impact is only better imagined if all the fundamentals, including human discipline are not mustered to manage this situation.

CALLOUS, INSENSITIVE AND WICKED GOVERNORS AND THEIR NEW AIRPORT PROJECTS

The craze for state-owned airports by some governors amid the economic hardship in the country shows not only the level of insensitivity among the ruling class but poor capacity in governance. Prioritisation seems to be alien to them, while they are at home with profligacy. Talking of bogus airport projects when most states can’t meet basic statutory responsibilities to their people is the worst display of ego-tripping in power, visionlessness and even criminality. Certainly, the governors cannot be working in the public interest but for themselves and their cronies if the suffering masses who have no need for airports do not matter as much as the few.

INAUGURATION OF LASU VICE CHANCELLOR IN GOVT HOUSE BY LAGOS STATE GOVERNOR

THE CORRUPTION MINDSET OF NIGERIANS

Mainstream media and the social media are awash with the news and discussions on the present Federal Government’s fight against corruption. The justification for the fight or otherwise, has pitched Nigerians against one another: those for and those against, even if such opposition is veiled in one form of the criticism of the government’s mode of leading the fight or another. One thing that became clear in all these discussions is the level of our tolerance for corruption – the corruption mindset of Nigerians.

Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Minister of Solid Mineral Development
Minister of Solid Minerals, Kayode Fayemi’s  statement the other day, encouraging states to ‘either set up their own investment corporations or go into partnership with the private sector in order to exploit what is available to them in their states’ is a welcome pronouncement from the government at the centre. But the minister also added the prohibitive caveat that states must do this ‘within the law.’ And that law is the issue.

2016 BUDGET AND ECONOMIC REVIVAL

President Muhammadu Buhari
All things considered, the size of the N6.08 trillion 2016 federal budget for 2016 should be of little economic interest. Had the budget formulation, presentation and appropriation followed the laid-down time schedule, the agreed oil price benchmark would have been higher than the N38/barrel, thereby giving a different budget size. But the projected volume of crude oil production invites curiosity.

PRESIDENT BUHARI, GIVE US REAL SECURITY

President Muhammadu Buhari
One of the three cardinal objectives of the ruling All Progressives Congress’ change slogan is the provision of security; the other two being fight against corruption and employment provision to Nigerian teeming youth. While it may seem still rather early to take stock of President Buhari’s administration in these critical areas, it is crucial to draw the attention of the President and members of his cabinet to Nigeria citizens’ security needs. Without undermining the ongoing war on insurgency in the northeast, national security, Nigerians anticipate, should be truly national, protecting and working for all Nigerians.

CRUCIAL FACTORS THAT WILL SHAPE POWER SECTOR IN 2016

It is not a gainsaying that the nation’s power sector is on the right track to the proverbial Promised Land going by the recent development on electricity supply.

NAIRA DEVALUATION: IMPLICATION AND DANGER

Devaluation means official lowering of the value of a country’s currency relative to other foreign currencies. Currency depreciation refers to falling exchange value of a currency for other foreign currencies as a result of the forces of demand and supply which may be temporary. Currency redenomination on the other hand means changing the currency to a lower digital value due to its outrageous falling exchange rate over time. In effect, it means changing the face value of a highly devalued currency.

ANALYSTS’ VIEWS ON LAGARDE’S VISIT TO NIGERIA

Christine Lagarde, CEO, IMF
International Monetary Fund (IMF) engaged, as well as hobnobbed with the leadership of the country at various levels. Yes, “hobnobbed” because she admitted that Nigeria is a great country that made her visit memorable. On the other hand, it was engaging because she made observations and commendations, raised issues and proffered solutions.

ON ELECTRICITY TARIFF

The hike in electricity tariff against widespread opposition of Nigerians smacks of gross insensitivity on the part of the authorities to the high level of poverty and suffering of Nigerians. An albatross on Nigeria from which there seems to be no escape for the people would seem to have been made heavier on their necks.

It must be noted that urban renewal is a sine qua non for any serious government of a hustling and bustling community as Lagos, which is one of the most populous states, and easily the state with the highest population density in the country.
