The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, says that the ruling All Progressives Congress and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party have failed Nigerians over the years and should be rejected in the 2023 general election. Kwankwaso, who said the two parties had since 1999 failed in all sectors and could not succour Nigerians, bemoaned the plight of passengers plying the Ado – Akure Road linking the capital cities of Ondo and Ekiti states. He said, “The only way to avert that disaster is for Nigerians to go and sell the ideas of the NNPP, which is a progressive party, and vote for the party come 2023. “We have seen the performance of the APC and the PDP and all of us believe that they have failed the country woefully and nobody should expect anything from them again. These people in the two parties have failed and failed woefully, they have nothing to offer.

Disposal of waste is not part of a doctor’s job description. I perform surgery from time to time and I do not think I have been asked at anytime to dispose of waste generated. Do you mean it is the duty of the nurses to clean up the theatre and dispose of waste? This last incident seems to suggest that there is a battle of supremacy between doctors and nurses at the hospital. It is not good for her mental health as a doctor who is supposed to see patients.

Police forensic teams in South Africa are investigating the deaths of 22 young people at a nightclub and bar in the southern coastal town of East London. “It’s difficult to believe it’s a stampede as there are no visible open wounds to those dead,” he said. South African Police Force (SAPS) and forensics experts work at the scene at the Enyobeni Tavern in East London, South Africa. Overstretched police forces and local government officials often turn a blind eye to such law-breaking, sometimes in return for bribes. Cele said he had been told that the tavern was known for underage drinking and told local parents they needed to take responsibility for their children.

“When other countries talk about subsidy, it is about helping companies, including public enterprises, to maximise their profits. But the subsidy is equal to fraud in Nigeria. This is the argument that has been made and we don’t need to wait for the World Bank to tell us how inefficient it is,” he said. The World Bank warned that escalating prices of essentials and the shock from the crisis in Europe would push additional seven million Nigerians into poverty at the close of the year. It is very funny how anyone thinks rice can be cultivated amid reigning insecurity in the country,” he stated.

We hold the view, quite strongly, that in the pursuit and attainment of economic freedom, economic prosperity is inevitable. These then are the social objectives which we consider to be indispensable to the goals of economic freedom and prosperity. Having stated these social objectives, the next important question is: how do we achieve them? Are these objectives essential to the attainment of economic freedom and prosperity and are they practicable? Only a few thinking Nigerians understand the forces at work in these matters, and give full support for the social objectives which we have stated.

My feeling is that the political class does not seem to appreciate the enormity of the challenge before them. Members of the political class just feel it is getting power that is important; they are getting it wrong. The political class should learn to play by the rules and not take undue advantage of the people. Performance will be possible in such a situation because with the present situation, things are unfortunately not working. If it is the presidential system that we want, we should run it how it should be run, not mixing the two unnecessarily.

The collapse of the Agricultural Development Programme (ADP) in Nigeria has been identified as the contributory factor to the woes of the sector in the recent past. Other objectives include improving farmers’ access to and use of agricultural knowledge, technologies, marketing systems and infrastructure, for the purpose of contributing to higher productivity and profitability. “The ministry of agriculture and the ADPs are well-positioned to deliver their mandate due to their reach and action on the ground. “The only way to revive ADPs is to fund it, support rural farmers with modern farming technologies, seeds, loans, grants and train farmers on GAP,” she said. This is a very critical area that affects the selection criteria of ADPs and who actually gets to benefit.
