…Invites youths for Peace Walk to herald ‘healing of Lagos’

Lagos State deserves true healing after the disturbances that trailed last year’s protests against police brutality, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said on Tuesday. He said only sustenance of harmony can guarantee the realisation of aspirations of all residents. Sanwo-Olu spoke in a live broadcast held at the State House, Alausa, on the State Government’s position on the recommendations of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry on EndSARS submitted a fortnight ago. The Governor said the State currently faced the hard choice of restoring harmony or doing itself a great harm, urging residents to join his administration in strengthening harmony and put the State on the path of peace. Sanwo-Olu asked residents to reject those fueling anarchy and suspicion, clinging to unsubstantiated belief that carried no weight of verifiable evidence, while choosing emotion over facts. His administration, he said, is ready to facilitate better communication between the youths and the State’s security machinery to resolve issues before they become intractable. He said he would be leading ‘A Walk for Peace’ in December to herald the healing of the land, extending an open invitation to the youths, members of the diplomatic corps, civil society groups, students and the media as well as other stakeholders to join him in the Peace Walk.

The Governor specifically invited Folarin Falana (Falz), Debo Adebayo (Mr. Marcaroni), Dele Farotimi, Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya (Segalinks), Adedotun (Just Detoun), Seun Kuti, Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu and Commander of Rapid Response Squad (RRS), CSP Yinka Egbeyemi and others to join him in the “historic march for our dear Lagos.” He said: “Nobody will build this city for us. Let us show the world who we are.

We are Lagosians. A people of great renown, driven by the irrepressible spirit of Lagos. It is a testimony to our strength and resilience as a people that, despite the huge losses incurred because of these terrible incidents, we have bounced back, with our economy as vibrant and virile as ever. I have no doubt whatsoever that our prospects are as bright as ever and the best lies ahead of Lagos State and Nigeria. “We will make it easier for our young people to initiate formal complaints on human rights violations through the Ministry of Justice.

We will also improve the coordination between the state government and the security agencies, including the police and the military. In this vein, we are studying how to improve security policy formulation, information sharing, and clarifying rules of engagement in times of social unrest. “Just as we have established a mechanism to compensate all those who lost homes, businesses, and livelihoods to the violent destruction of October 2020, we shall also establish a detailed procedure for the just compensation of citizens with verified claims of police brutality committed during the protests.”

Speaking on last year’s EndSARS protests and the events that followed, especially the hijack of the protests by hoodlums, which led to the destruction of public and private property worth billions of naira, the Governor said the Government, the youth, protesters, the Police and other security agencies have learned the appropriate lessons from the EndSARS protests, particularly the Lekki Tollgate incident, with a view to averting any recurrence to the detriment of the State. On mixed reactions following the release of the report of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry, Sanwo-Olu said his administration remained committed to the process that would bring a closure to a “painful episode” in the history of the State.

The much-expected White Paper, the Governor pledged, will be issued later in the day. He recalled that the panel was originally inaugurated to investigate allegations of police brutality committed by the disbanded SARS and in the aftermath of what happened on October 20, 2020, he decided to expand the mandate to include investigating what happened at the Lekki Tollgate that night. He said: “As a matter of good faith and a sincere commitment to uncovering the truth, we constituted a panel of individuals that we believed were independent, credible, and representative of the various stakeholder communities interested in the movement against police brutality. “Apart from the chairman of the panel being a respected retired jurist, various stakeholders including the youths, #EndSARS protesters, the police and civil society groups were represented on the panel. I am sure no member of the panel can claim that the State Government made any attempt to influence them in any way throughout the duration of its sitting. “While I commend the panel for undertaking its task to the best of its abilities, it is however regrettable that the panel’s work and the leakage of an unauthorised version of the report have generated much tension. Sadly, a deep wound has been reopened.

“The heated exchanges among various shades of opinion on the report have unfortunately put us all at the risk of missing the larger picture; the fact that what we all seek in common is a land in which we are all safe and secure, law enforcement agents are trusted, and justice is guaranteed for all. “We have no intention to engage in histrionics or further inflame passion on a matter that has generated intense interest and controversy nationally and internationally.

Our decisions and actions will be based entirely on the law, the weight of evidence, and unblemished respect for the truth.” Governor Sanwo-Olu, while expressing his administration’s commitment to end human rights abuses, said he has never been in any doubt as to the sincerity, patriotism and noble motivations of both organisers of EndSARS protests and those who participated in the movement to see an end to the human rights abuses by the now disbanded Special Anti- Robbery Squad (SARS). He said it is also on record that the Federal Government accepted all the demands of the protesters, including the immediate scrapping of SARS, adding that the National Economic Council (NEC) also recommended the establishment of State Panels of Inquiry into cases of police brutality and the Lagos State Government was the first to set up its own panel.

He said: “I can boldly say that no State took the advocacy for police reforms and justice in the face of documented brutality more seriously than we did in Lagos. We have so far paid N420 million in compensation to victims of police brutality, in line with the recommendations of the panel. “My good people of Lagos State, you will also recall that in solidarity with the protesters, I joined our youths at various points during the demonstrations, particularly at the Lekki Tollgate and Alausa.

“I received the charter of demands of the protesters and promised to pass them on to the President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, President Muhammadu Buhari. “I kept my word and passed on the demands to the President, who promised to act promptly on the issues raised. However, perhaps as a result of entrenched lack of trust between the government and the governed over the years, the protesters responded to the government’s concessions with skepticism, and the demonstrations continued, even growing in intensity. “Regrettably, what had been very well organized and peaceful protests were subsequently hijacked in different parts of the country, particularly in Lagos. In the ensuing descent into anarchy, many of our compatriots were caught up in the violence. Several policemen were killed. Public and private property, including critical infrastructure, were set on fire, leading to losses estimated at several billions of naira. “At that point, I imposed a curfew to restore normalcy in Lagos.

We had only one goal in mind: the maintenance of law and order, and the protection of citizens going about their daily lives. This is more than a legal duty. It is a sacred obligation under the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which I swore to uphold,” the governor explained. #ForAGreaterLagos

Africa Bridge Initiative presentYouth agricultural empowerment conference at Surulere, Lagos ~Ajasa-Info

A commissioner in the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission, Prof. Tunde Babawale, has called on youths to embrace the plan of boosting food security through agriculture.

Babawale made this call on Thursday, during the Youth Agricultural Empowerment conference, held in Surulere.

He said, “Food production is key to sustenance and survival; therefore I want to urge all participants in this programme to embrace the agenda of food security through agriculture. Low productivity which is a current challenge stems from lack of interest in farming and insecurity.”

The Managing Director, Vinemond Farms, Mr Niyi Olukoya, added that insecurity was one of the biggest challenges threatening food security in the country.

“The reality is that insecurity needs to be addressed in this sector. Sometimes we have to rely on community guards with cutlasses who help us wade through the farms to protect us. But the future of this country is bright with more youths in the sector to cultivate newer ideas and boost the economy,” he said.

The Executive Director, Africa Bridge Initiative, Mr Taiwo Opeoluwa, said, “Agriculture is the future of Nigeria, and the reason is because it is the answer to the unemployment challenge facing about 60 million youths in the country. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has made great strides in this regard.”

Other notable leaders in attendance are: Hon Benjamin Olasunkanmi CEO. Aidem communication Ltd, Mr olaniyi olukoya
CEO Vinemond farms, Mrs Toyin Bakare
Executive director SAS Textiles Ltd

Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, has called on Africans from across the globe to work together to boost the creative industry, stressing that “there is power in oneness as a continent.”

Speaking at the 17th edition of the Africa Movie Academy Awards, AMAA, held on Sunday night, at the Marriot Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, the Governor committed to hosting AMAA for the next three years in a bid to strengthen African unity through creativity, using Lagos as a rallying point.

He said that the creative sector has been very instrumental to the growth of the State and had contributed immensely to the entire Africa continent through impressive and captivating storylines portrayed on the screen.

“This is the time for us to come together. And with the creative world, you can see that when we work together, there is power in unity in Africa; there is power in oneness. That’s why the Lagos State government is committing to host AMAA for the next three years,” the Governor stated.

The Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Pharm. Mrs Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf during her Opening Remarks at the event, described the choice of Lagos as the venue for this year’s AMAA as a well-thought-out idea, considering the strategic place Lagos occupies in the entertainment industry, adding that Lagos has the record of most successful movie producers in Nigeria, adding that the business side of movie production thrives more in the city.

She said “Lagos, as you know is a city that never sleeps and this portends a great deal for the entertainment industry to leverage on the vibrancy of this city. Invariably, the huge population of Lagos coupled with the lifestyle of its inhabitants who are fun-loving people is a great advantage for you to creatively express yourself and make a fortune out of it.”

Akinbile-Yussuf, recalled that in recognition of the efforts of practitioners in the movie industry, the Ministry had earlier in the year through a collaboration with a private firm, honoured some producers, actresses, cinematographers and several others within the value chain of film and movie production during the Eko star film awards event under the Ministry’s ‘Lagos Culture Series’.

While saying that the State Government is ready to provide and promote platforms that will further enhance Lagos State’s competitive positioning as one of the top 5 tourist destinations in Africa, the Commissioner, urged practitioners in the film and movie industry to continue to make Lagos and Nigeria proud before the international community through creative storylines that will portray our true identity.

During the presentation of awards at the event, Nigeria’s “Ëyimofe”, directed by Arie Esiri and Chuko Esiri won four awards, including Best Nigerian Film, Best Director, Best Achievement in Sound and Best first feature film.

Founded by Peace Anyiam- Osigwe, for the past 17 years, AMAA has consistently supported and celebrated African cinema. This year’s edition of the event was attended by movie stars, producers and directors across Africa, government officials, stakeholders and captains of industry, among other attendees.

Amosu reiterated that Agriculture is way to go as youths are fully ready to contribute to the GDP of our nation through Agriculture and animal husbandry.
It is evident from country like Guinea and Nigeria that piggery is a lucrative business. In fact, 95 percent of meat consumed in Guinea is pig. Starting the exportation of pigs to other countries would be a win-win situation for the youths, the government and the nation at large.

The Vice President urges the beneficiaries to serve as a role model for subsequent beneficiaries of this laudable empowerment Program by utilizing the money judiciously for pig rearing .

The Vice-President also uses the opportunity to appreciate Hon Adejare for the SABACO STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP Project and other numerous programs under the green chamber member

Efficient Energy: BUA Signs Another 70mw Gas Power Plant Contract With Finnish Company, Wartsila Oy For Its Cement Line ~Ajasa-Info

Abdul Samad Rabiu, Founder/Executive Chairman, BUA Group and the Deputy Minister for International Trade for Finland, Ms. Nina Vaskunlahti when the Deputy Minister paid a courtesy call on the Chairman at the BUA Regional Office in Abuja.

BUA has signed yet another agreement with Wartsila OY of Finland for the construction of a 70megawatts dual-fuel power plant for its BUA Cement Obu Line 3 project in Edo State, Southern Nigeria. This agreement was signed between both companies at a ceremony in Abuja presided over by the Deputy Minister for International Trade for Finland, Ms. Nina Vaskunlahti. This gas power plant will also be the third power plant to be commissioned by BUA from Wartsila as BUA Cement seeks to increase its total production capacity across all its locations to 17million metric tonnes by 2023.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Abdul Samad Rabiu, Chairman of BUA, who signed on behalf of the cement producer said that BUA was committed to utilizing cleaner, more efficient energy sources for its cement operations rather than relying on coal or heavy fuels. According to Rabiu, the 70MW gas-powered plant ordered by BUA for its Obu Line 3 cement plant will ensure that the company remains very efficient in its energy utilization in the cement production process.

“Currently, we have phased out the use of coal across our factories and are shifting to gas powered plants. As we ramp up our capacity, there is need to complement it with efficient power supply and Wartsila’s technology has been found to be durable and uniquely aligned with our vision for more efficient power generation at all our production locations,” Rabiu added
