The Federal Government has postponed the planned closure of the -Ibadan Expressway for repairs

The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, Mr Adedamola Kuti, announced that the closure has been moved from Aug. 3 to Sept. 2.

He explained that due to the busy nature of the highway, the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing had made announcements earlier on the closure, in a bid to reduce stress for commuters on the highway, NAN reports.

Kuti added that because the government and the contractor handling the rehabilitation were sensitive to the plight of road users, they decided to shift the construction to Sept. 2 from Aug. 3 scheduled earlier for commencement of .

“You may wish to know that the road project is an ongoing one and the contractor’s mode of operation is to create diversion as necessary to enable reconstruction work to be carried out at a specific location.

“This has been done on several occasions along the alignment.

“The intended reconstruction and expansion work of the section between Berger Junction and Kara Bridge is designed to follow the same way.

“This location has high volume of traffic and commercial activities, hence an early release of information to the public to intimate them of the planned work.

“The idea is to divert traffic at this location to enable construction work to be carried out.

“To ensure effective traffic management and show sensitivity to Nigerians, the government and the contractors have now reviewed the work plan.”

Sowore vs DSS: House of Reps to investigate invasion of court 20191211 030748

The House of Representatives has directed the relevant house committees to investigate the event surrounding the rearrest of the founder of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore in the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The motion was moved by Minority Leader, Rep. Ndudi Elumelu (PDP-Delta) under Matters of Urgent Public Importance at the plenary presided over by the Speaker, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila on Tuesday.

The committees are National Security and Intelligence, Judiciary, and Human Rights.

Elumelu said the investigation was on the “invasion of the Federal High Court premises Abuja by yet to be identified persons”.

He described the invasion of the court by the unidentified persons as “disregard for the rule of law”.

“The videos emerging in public domain show these unidentified person trying to bundle Omoyele Sowore and his co-accused Olawale Bakare away from the courtroom room, while Sowore’s supporters were resisting them, which is an abuse to the sanctity of the courtroom.

He expressed concern that “men of the civil society” claimed that the unidentified masked men were agents of the Department of the State Services (DSS).

“The DSS has denied through their spokesman Peter Afunanya that its personnel were never involved in the incident.

“Sections 4, 5 and 6 of the 1999 Constitution as amended guarantees the separation of powers and the independence of every arm of government.

“A situation where one arm is seen to be overpowering another in the course of dispensing its duties will definitely spell doom for the separation of powers as enshrined in the constitution.”

The lawmaker also expressed worry that the “act of the persons disrupted judicial proceedings and made the presiding judge to abandon her duty post because of safety concerns.

“This is a complete desecration of the temple of justice and such an action should be completely discouraged”.

He said that if the action was not properly checked, the National Assembly “may one day be invaded and the relevant security agencies will claim not knowing who the offenders are.”

He also said that the physical assault on Sowore and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare by the yet-to-be-identified persons inside the courtroom was the “highest act of sacrilege” in the judiciary.

The house, however, directed the committees investigating to back within two weeks, NAN reports.

Aisha Buhari sends message to 36 States governors’ wives 20191210 131136

Wives of the 36 States Governors have been commended for the role they play in reducing the spate of maternal and child mortality in .

The commendation was made by First Lady of Nigeria, Dr Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari during a Mid-Term Peer Review session on Governors Wives Advocacy Coalition (GWAC) held at the State House, Abuja.

Mrs Buhari recalled the day in October 2017, when she signed a commitment with the wives of Governors to champion the cause of RMNCAH+N, the commitment that led to the Governors’ Wives Advocacy Coalition.

“We all realized the need to aggressively address the issues to avoid a situation where women will have to choose whether to give birth to a child or stay alive”, said the First Lady.

She expressed her excitement over their performance leading to several interventions for the improvement of RMNCAH+N in their various states, including the trickling down efforts to the wives of Local Government Chairmen thus complementing the effort of government in their states.

She said as women and mothers, they understand better than anybody the problems and challenges being faced by women and children in the society.

A communique read at the end of the meeting identified the peer review as an opportunity to assess the progress made and provide insights on the future of the project.

It further called on Development Partners both from the public and private sectors interested in working for the health and wellbeing of women and children to strategically engage state’s first ladies.

Highlight of the event was the investiture of the wife of the Vice President, Her Excellency, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo and wives of Governors as champions in the fight against tuberculosis (TB).

the president’s wife urged them to “use every opportunity to advocate for the improvement in the services towards detection and treatment of TB in Nigeria.
