Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) decision to postpone the Presidential/National Assembly and Gubernatorial/ of Assembly Elections.

INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, addressing reporters at the press centre of the commission’s headquarters in Abuja, the nation’s Capital, said that the polls would not go on as planned due to some challenges encountered by the commission.

He explained that the decision to postpone the polls followed a careful review of the implementation of the logistics and operational plans put in place for the exercise.

Atiku, in a statement he personally signed in the early hours of Saturday, described the situation as unfortunate.

He blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for failure to utilise the time it had to organise the elections.

He related the actions of INEC to the Biblical hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob.

The statement read: “As you know, the Independent National Electoral Commission has announced a postponement of the elections until 23 February and 9 March respectively.

“The Buhari administration has had more than enough time and money to prepare for these elections and the Nigerian people were poised and ready to perform their civic responsibility by voting in the elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, 16 February, .

“This postponement is obviously a case of the hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob. By instigating this postponement, the Buhari administration hopes to disenfranchise the Nigerian electorate in order to ensure that turn out is low on the rescheduled date. Nigerians must frustrate their plans by coming out in even greater numbers on Saturday, 23 February and Saturday, 9 March respectively.

“Knowing that the Nigerian people are determined to reject them, they are desperate and will do anything in their power to avoid their rejection by the Nigerian people.

“Their plan is to provoke the public, hoping for a negative reaction, and then use that as an excuse for further anti-democratic acts.

“As such, I call on all Nigerians to be patient. We have tolerated the maladministration of this government for four years. We can extend our tolerance a few more days and give them our verdict via our votes.”

Breaking: FG, Labour reach agreement on new Minimum Wage + New template Minimum Wage negotiation 1

Breaking: FG, Labour reach agreement on new Minimum Wage + New template Minimum Wage negotiation 300x175

The Federal Government and Organised Labour have reached an agreement on the percentage increase on the consequential adjustment in workers’ salaries based on the new minimum wage of N30,000.
The two sides to the dispute, who have been at the negotiating table in the last few months, eventually reached an agreement late on Thursday.
According to the new template, workers on Grade Level 07 will get 23.2 per cent consequential adjustment; Grade Level 08, 20 per cent; Grade Level 09, 19 per cent; Grade Levels 10 to 14, 16 per cent; and Grade Level 15 to 17, 14 per cent.
The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has while the meeting was on tweeted that an agreement had been reached.
Keyamo said on his Twitter handle: “After some delicate negotiations (with both ministers as conciliators), the government and labour have finally reached an agreement on the consequential adjustment of other wages following the implementation of the enhanced minimum wage of N30,000. We are working on the communiqué.”
Following on this, the President of the Trade Union Congress, Quadri Olaleye, and the Secretary General, Musa-Lawal Ozigi, issued a statement confirming the agreement.
The statement read: “We commend the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan, and her team for their sincerity. Though they argued that the government could not afford to meet our earlier demand of N30,000 minimum wage across board because of the economic situation in the country, we made them understand that some people could not be more Nigerian than others. If we are tightening our belts, government should also do so.”

Nigeria needs more prayers to overcome security challenges, others – Senate President, Lawan lawan 1024x576

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on Wednesday said that would need prayers to overcome its current challenges.

Lawan said this when a delegation of the Christian Legislators’ Fellowship of the National Assembly visited him.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser (Media) Ola Awoniyi, he said, “given the situation we are in today, the various challenges that Nigeria and its people face, we even need to pray more.

“Today, we face serious security challenges. Where we have security agencies, which are mandated to ensure that we are secured and protected, if nothing, we should pray for them that they are able to perform well.

“It is not only in empowering them with weapons; the power of God is beyond weapons.

“I’m sure that all people of faith will continue to pray for our security agencies to protect us,” he added

Lawan also stated that as leaders, they had the responsibility to ensure that they provided leadership, to continue to seek the intervention of God in the way and manner that we lead our people.

“We have to do whatever we can to be as truthful, transparent and accountable to our people,” NAN quoted him as saying.
