Herdsmen attacks: News

Herdsmen attacks: News

Yoruba elders under the umbrella of Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE), on Thursday, urged state Houses of Assemblies in the South-West geo-political zone as well as Kwara and Kogi States to promulgate laws that will see an end to open grazing.
YCE, while kicking against open grazing within the South-West geopolitical zone, called on state legislators in these states, to urgently enact laws outlawing nomadic grazing in Yorubaland.
The group in a communiqué issued at the end of its meeting in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital where new leaders were elected, said grazing routes of the pre-independence era and the first republic have been wiped off and in most cases taken over by housing estates.
YCE stated that grazing is no longer feasible because the cattle would destroy farmland and impoverish the people.
While reading the nine-point communiqué signed by the new President, Justice Ademola Bakre; Chairmen from Ekiti, Lagos, Ogun and Kwara States as well as Chairmen, UK and USA chapters, the Secretary-General of the group, Dr. Kunle Olajide, lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for suspending the RUGA project, urging him to do more to restore the dwindling confidence of Nigerians in his administration.
The group in the communiqué insisted that what the country needs now is true federalism, noting that the President must without delay revisit the 2014 National Conference report and the El-Rufai committee report on devolution of power.
The communiqué read, “The Council notes the palpable tension in the country arising from the frightening state of insecurity which has now gravitated from the North East and is gradually enveloping the six zones of the country. Tragic stories of kidnapping for ransom, murder, herdsmen/farmers clashes adorn the media virtually everyday.
“The unfortunate introduction of RUGA after the failed attempt to establish cattle colonies has heightened mutual suspicion amongst the ethnic groups because of what some Nigerians suspect could be sinister plans to hijack peoples land and establish militia of occupation in all parts of the country.
“The YCE believes Mr. President can heal the gaping wounds in the polity by reassuring Nigerians with his actions walking the talk on his preachment for unity. Politics and 2023 Presidency should be put at bay now. We are in a state of emergency; all hands must be on deck to lower the political temperature of the country.”
On the daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, Mrs. Funke Olakunrinwho was murdered along Ore road by suspected herders, the elders called on governors of the Yoruba States, Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ekiti, Kwara, Kogi and Ondo to deploy technology to monitor our forests and flush out criminals masquerading as herdsmen from our forests”.
The new president, Justice Bakre, in his acceptance speech, said he was ashamed that people who are called elders were doing wrong things, noting that he, as the leader of the council, would not go cap in hands begging the governors for any largesse.

Lagos, USADF sign N3.6bn deal to train 15,000 youths — Daily Times Nigeria . Business news




The Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) has signed a N3.6 billion Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the United States African Development Fund (USADF) to support 15,000 youths in the State.
Through this MoU, both parties will provide the equal sum of $2 million dollars every year for five (5) years ($10m in total) to provide skill development and internship opportunities to 3,000 youth between the ages of 18-35, yearly.
Speaking during the signing ceremony on Tuesday in Lagos, Mrs. Ifueko M. Omoigui Okauru, Chairman, LSETF’s Board of Trustees, said that the agreement was in line with its mandate to provide employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for Lagos residents.
Okauru disclosed that women will represent at least 50% of the beneficiaries.
The signing ceremony which took place in Washington DC, United States of America had top executives of both agencies, members of the U.S Congress, partners and international media present.
The chairman expressed her optimism on the impact of the partnership.
“This USADF-LSETF collaboration will enable a) the expansion of world-class vocational training centers available in the state; b) the development of 15,000 skilled youth for employment into targeted sectors;
c) the provision of internship cost subsidies to employers and; d) track real time placement of unemployed youth into jobs”.
In her remarks, Teju Abisoye, Acting Executive Secretary (LSETF) said, “With the recent Labor Force Report by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showing a 6.7% drop in unemployment rate as well as Lagos state
providing the largest number of 740,146 jobs in the third quarter of 2018, it is obvious that the deliberate employment intervention policies of the Lagos State Government are finally impacting on job creation.
I am pleased to have USADF join us to create more jobs for our youth, whilst sustainably decreasing our alarming unemployment rate”
Also commenting, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the United States African Development Foundation, C. D Glin stated that, “We are proud to be in partnership with the LSETF, whose programmes have been independently verified to be making impact on the lives of young Nigerians.
This USADF-LSETF partnership further expands our existing commitment to investing in high impact initiatives hinged on generating income, providing financial solutions and causing a change in the African economy.”
The initiative includes training of participants and provision of internship opportunities over a period of six (6) months and is expected to result in sustainable job and entrepreneurship opportunities.

CAST9JA: Chelsea Agree £40.3m On Kovacic Deal With Real Madrid Amid Lampard Talks

Cast9ja

The Croatia midfielder is set to have a permanent stay at Stamford Bridge after which a fee was agreed between teams to make his loan move permanent deal. Chelsea have agreed a fee of £40.3 million ($51m/€45m) with Real Madrid to secure the service of  Mateo Kovacic’s long-term future at the club.
Chelsea have waited until the last minute to finalise a deal for Real Madrid midfielder Kovacic as the deadline to complete a deal was earmarked for June 30 this year, but can now prepare for serious contract talks.
This happens after Derby County given permission to the Blues to open discussions with Frank Lampard about
the club manager’s role, with the former Chelsea star expected to return to west London to replace Maurizio Sarri which has now become the new Juventus manager.                                               Chelsea can agree the deal for Mateo Kovacic’s despite FIFA imposing a one year transfer ban on signing senior players this year February because the Blues already held registration
documents from his loan spell at the club last season.
The transfer ban are likely to remain in place after the club decided against appealing for provisional measures to Court Arbitration of Sport (CAS) to hold the ban.
Sarri had already wanted Kovacic, who played 51 times during his loan spell with the Premier League club Chelsea  last season, but the Croatia international was then left unsure of his career as Chelsea manager moved to Juventus .
Better for Chelsea, the 25-year-old midfielder was keen to stay with the
Londons and his imminent move will make things easy on the new manager, with respect to England International midfielder Ruben Loftus- Cheek which is  set to miss the beginning of next season thanks to a ruptured Achilles tendon.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, have to raise funds having spent in the region of €300 million (£270m/$340m) on
five players this summer, including €100m on Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard.
They still want to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United also a move for Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is also on ground, and as such players have to be sold to ensure the required finances are in the right place.
