A Political Scientist, Malam Abdul-Rahoof Bello, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently enlist the spiritual support of African witches and wizards, to combat the endemic challenges of insecurity and corruption, navigating the ship of the Nigerian state towards a huge rock.
The former University Lecturer proffered this option in a statement he issued and made available to newsmen in Abuja on Monday.
Bello noted that the time was ripe and right for Buhari to apply this unorthodox method of African native intelligence in warfare, to defend Nigeria’s territorial integrity and sovereignty against the insurrection of Boko Haram, ritual killings and systemic corruption.
He said that the government had continued to apply the same methods that have yielded no positive results over and over again, even with the deafening prayers by both Muslims and Christians in the country.
He queried why the President had refused to fumigate the nation’s security architecture in obedience to public outcry to allow for fresh ideas?
He reminded the President on how Allah (SWA), Commanded the hordes of charger flying birds (Taeran Ababeela), each with a pebble, to flatten the rebellion of the people of elephants who had attempted to demolish the House of Allah (Q:105:1-5)?
The political analyst opined that the deployment by Allah (SWA) of *Taeran Habaabeel against Ashiaabil feeli, was a symbolic expression of the modern day witchcraft science.
He decried the worsening security situation and the systemic corruption that had become a thump arthritis dwarfing the landmark achievements of Mr President and a campaign material for the opposition group to blackmail the governing party.
” The APC stakeholder advised the President not to rest, retreat nor surrender to the forces of darkness in religious killings, ritual killings, ethnic cleansing, kidnapping, corruption, and all other centrifugal tendencies, threatening Nigeria’s corporate existence,” he said.
Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, says international flights, suspended by the nation’s aviation authorities as a result of the global outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will resume on Aug. 29, 2020.
He announced this at Monday’s briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja, adding that Nigeria’s international airports have reached advanced stages of preparedness for the resumption of international flight operations.
The Newsmen reports that as a result, all evacuation flights, introduced in the country in the wake of the ban on international flights occasioned by the outbreak of the COVID-19, will end on Aug. 25 2020.
The minister disclosed that like it was done during the resumption of domestic flights across the country, the international flights would commence with the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja and the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos.
The emphasis, he said, would be placed on the observation of all the safety and technical guidelines as prescribed by global and health authorities which would be communicated in due course.
“I am pleased to announce the resumption of international flights from Aug. 29, 2020, beginning with Lagos and Abuja as we did with the domestic flight resumption.
“Protocols and procedures will be announced in due course. We thank you for your patience.”
The minister also said that passengers would need to do a COVID-19 test close to the departure date and do another one eight days after arriving in the country.
He revealed that the passengers would pay for the COVID-19 test done in the country.
The Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA) has called for closer ties between Nigeria and Indonesia, especially in the area of agribusiness technology.
The National President, NACCIMA,
Hajiya Saratu Iya Aliyu, made the call, according to a statement by the association on Monday in Lagos.
The statement was on the first virtual Nigerian-Indonesia Business Forum which brought together over 70 Nigerian and Indonesian businesses.
It was organised in partnership with the Indonesian Trade Promotion Centre (ITPC).
According to the statement, the NACCIMA president said that closer in the area of agribusiness technology would ensure enhanced agricultural production in Nigeria for optimal output.
“I thank the Indonesian Trade Promotion Centre in Lagos and the team at NACCIMA for successfully organizing the virtual business forum despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said.
The statement also quoted the
Indonesian Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr Usra Hendra Harahap, as saying that increasing partnerships between businesses of both countries would positively impact their private sectors.
He said that this would help them to acquire appropriate knowledge to harness existing potential opportunities.
Harahap said that more partnership would also strengthen agribusiness relations between Nigeria and Indonesia.
“The Indonesian Trade Promotion Centre in Lagos and NACCIMA have agreed on the continuous forum for engagement between Indonesian and Nigerian businesses.
“This is to further strengthen the bilateral relationship between both countries that has existed since the establishment of its diplomatic relations in 1965,” he said.
Mrs Beatrice Archibong, the Charge D’affaires of the Nigerian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia said that the forum was a clear demonstration of goodwill and determination to boost the economy of both countries.
This, according to her, is in spite of the negative impacts of the growing pandemic.
She expressed the commitment of the Nigerian Embassy in Indonesia to coordinate with relevant stakeholders in Indonesia to provide the necessary information and guide into the Indonesian market available to potential Nigerian investors.
