Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has stated that a replacement security outfit that will compliment effort of the Western Nigeria Security Network, Operation Amotekun, and other security agencies in tackling the insecurity ravaging the region would soon be unveiled.

Speaking at a news conference in Lagos, he said the new security outfit would involve all security groups, traditional rulers and other stakeholders within the region.

He said stakeholders involved would deliberate on the difficulty in Ibadan Oyo State on St Patrick’s Day.

Adams and a few members of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere present at the press briefing also called on the six governors of the region to inject a minimum of 15 percent of their annual budget into agriculture.

Iba Adams, Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin and a chieftain of the group, Sola Lawal said investing an enormous amount of cash in agriculture will play an enormous impact in providing sustainable food production for the region.

They condemned the recent protest by food sellers within the northern part of the country, which prevented food from the world from coming to the Southwest.

The trio said investment in agriculture would offer employment, enhance internally generated revenue, provide food security, reduce urban congestion and enlarge the coast for participatory modernised agriculture.

Adams explained that the Southwest spent an enormous amount on food daily, adding that the protest was a clarion call to the Southwest leaders to supply the required security for farmers to supply enough agricultural produce.

NYSC To Consider Deploying Corps Members To ECOWAS States

Published

on

 

The National Youth Service Corps may consider deploying corps members to the 16 member states of the Economic Community of West African States Corps, going by one of the suggestions offered at its top management retreat in Niger State.

A lecturer at the University of Ibadan, Oyo State, Prof Oka Obono, gave the proposition to the NYSC top management during the retreat in Suleja, while delivering his lecture titled; “Strategies for Sustaining the NYSC in a Changing World.”

Obono stated that the advantages of Nigerian corps members deployed across the West African sub-region would include the vast reduction of unemployment among the youths as well as regional exposure.

He advocated that all stakeholders should embrace expansion strategies that would be of benefit to the youths.

“Expand operations to the West African region thereby reducing internal graduate unemployment and reducing pressures on the Nigerian labour market,” Prof Obono told the NYSC management.

The don, who described inter-ethnic distrust as the bane of the county’s problems, lauded the NYSC Director-General, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim for his leadership style since assuming duty as the 18th DG of NYSC.

He further advised that all stakeholders must adopt a high level of diplomacy and advocacy to positively engage the unlearned youths who are potential threats to societal peace and national development.

The NYSC DG, Ibrahim, in his remarks, said that the retreat was a platform for the scheme’s appraisal of its operations by the top management.

According to a release by the NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, and obtained by SaharaReporters, the agency will consider the suggestion.

“We will intensify more on our proactive disposition to official engagements to move the Scheme Forward”, Ibrahim added.

Published

An expert in Medical Laboratory Science at the Delta State University, Abraka, Professor Godwin Avwioro has called on the Federal Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) to consider cancer a major public health Challenge and develop implementable policies for its eradication in Nigeria.
Professor Avwioro, who was speaking on a lecture entitled ” Cancer: A Fight For the Poor, the Rich, the Weak, the Strong and the World” at the 85th in the series of inaugural lectures at the Delta State University, Abraka on April 15, 2021, advised the government to organize a national health summit on cancer in conjunction with the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in order to address the Scourge of cancer.

In order to have a structure to address the challenge of cancer, on a permanent basis, he suggested that the Federal Government should establish a National Agency for the control of cancer with branches in all the States of the Federation, adding that the fight against cancer should be similar to what was done against Ebola and what is being done against Covid-19 and the six children killer diseases.

A first rate Medical laboratory Scientist, the Professor of Histochemistry and Histopathology, held the large audience spell-bound with his deep knowledge of cancer and its management at the University’s 1st 750 capacity Hall, which is gradually achieving the status of being the venue of choice for important events in the University. Professor Avwioro, who, according to the April 2021 Google Scholar Rankings, is the 6th Histochemist in the world and Number one in Nigeria, brought home the ravages of cancer with frightening figures.
According to him, “In 2020, the International Agency for Research on cancer estimated 19.3 million new cases of cancer with about 10 million deaths. Female breast cancer was the most common with a estimated 2,261,419 new cases with 684,996 deaths. Cervical cancer was 604, 101 with 341,831 deaths. On the whole, Cancer occurs in women more than men with 60:40. Cancer knows no age, gender or position of an individual in the society. It has killed the poor, the rich , the week and the strong, including Presidents of Countries Kings and the wealthy without respect for any of them”.
