Published

The Local Government election held on the 27th of April 2024 did not go as some people expected. And to some it is not new and can never change in Nigeria system of governance.

The result of the election shows that the incumbent party in the state cleared all the 33 local governments seat.

Even though the governor of Oyo state, Engineer Oluseyi Abiodun Makinde vowed not to meddle in the business of the  election but to rather make it free, fair and credible.

An open letter circulating on social media sighted by our correspondent shows how some people, believed to be opposition are aggrieved over the outcome of the election. The open letter read thus :

Open Letter to OYSIEC Chairman Aare Isiaka Abiola Olagunju SAN!

Why did you compromise your integrity and hereafter with what will vanish?
Why did you not insist and tenaciously stick to the rule of law and due process?
You have lost all spiritual goodness and moral right to criticise any judgement of any court in Nigeria.
You have lost all moral authority to challenge any election in this country.
You can’t be a guest on radio to be asked to comment on good governance in this country.
Imagine if you had resigned and refused to bow to any pressures to announce the results of elections you yourself knew did not hold or marred with irregularities that were so manifest such that no reasonable electoral umpire would accept the results.
Why did you not remember your family? Why didn’t you think of tomorrow of your children?
Imagine if you had summoned courage to say you are a Muslim and you would not abandon Islamic injunction on justice and fairness.
Imagine if you had said you would not compromise your hereafter for wordly gains.
Let me ask you, are you poor? If you had resigned, would anger kill you?
You lost a very big opportunity to write your name in gold.
If you had refused to announce the results of that elections, your name would entered the Guinness Book of Records.
If you had resigned , you would have made history as an electrical umpire who refused to compromise.
If you had resigned , the international jobs would have come after you.

If you had resigned, you would have bagged national merit awards.

If you had done the right thing by resigning the federal government would have given you a national assignment..But you thought chairmanship of OYSIEC is the best and highest public office as a SAN.

You lack principles, you lack integrity and you rubbish your honour.

Shame on you.

Tinubu, Shettima, other VIPs to pay tollgate fees at airports

Published

By


The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Management, Festus Key among has disclosed that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his deputy Kashim Shettima and other VIPs will henceforth pay toll gates fee at all national airports.

“No more exemption. When we came to the office, we met a tradition on the ground where at the end of the year, all manners of VIPs would approach us for what they call complimentary e-tags or complimentary stickers. Whereby you see them coming into our airports nationwide. They don’t pay the access fees.

“They don’t pay for parking, they don’t pay for essential services at airports, and they are VIPs. And I told myself on my team, I said not under my watch. It will not happen. If this tradition has been existing for years, I will not allow it to happen. Because it is inconceivable that in our country it is the VIPs that don’t pay for services but it is the poor men that pay for services.

The VIPs were supposed to have money to pay for services, but they compel poor men to pay for services and I said no. So I got my team together, I said we need the backing of the Council to compel everybody. In fact, guess what? Our memo says with the exception of the President and the Vice President and the President overruled me and said he and the Vice President would pay.

“Let me give you the shocking statistics. The negative figure that we get at the end of the day from the complimentary e-tags is 82% in the negative. In other words, where we are supposed to have a 100% contract the e-costs from these e-tags that we print, it is only 18% that we now end up selling. That is how bad it is, 18% and 82% of these e-tags are given out free of charge to VIPs. So imagine the loss in my sector and I ask myself which other sector will I go to that they give me anything free?

“I’ll give another example. In one of the access gates, based on the count of the barrier going up and down, we are supposed to be making N250 or N260 million from that get every month. That gate, because of exemptions, the return is less than N100 million every month. That also of course, breeds corruption too because now you cannot track, you cannot have the audit trail of those free tags that you now give to our people to give out to people.

“So it was approved that the SGF should send a system-wide circular to everybody. We are going to also write to everybody, be it in the judiciary, the legislature, the executive, or the military high command, they can buy for their personnel yearly and don’t have to pay for every time you pass. Buy the yearly tags for all your officers, you have the money to pay us, so that we can improve your services at the airport.

“We got approval for that as part of ICAO’s requirements in the sum of N4.2 billion and a fraction, inclusive of VAT, with a completion period of 12 months to supply and also to train the handlers of these equipment to handle them and remove disabled aircraft from our runways, he concluded.
