From Alfred Babs, Ilorin

Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has approved the implementation of promotion arrears for teachers and staff of the State Universal Basic Education Board (KWSUBEB), effectively ending years of career stagnation that brought workers’ morale to an all-time low.

The announcement, made by SUBEB chairman, Professor Raheem Adaramaja at the commissioning of operational vehicles, motorcycles, electronic gadgets, and instructional materials for basic schools, triggered widespread applause from teachers and other workers of SUBEB who hailed the decision as timely.

Public basic school teachers in Kwara State were last promoted in 2017.

“Conduct of years 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 promotion examination and oral interview has been expressly approved by His Excellency to hold between the 2nd and 5th August, 2021.

“Outstanding salary arrears of staff are also not left out as the process is at its peak. We say a big thank you to His Excellency for considering the plight of our staff and finding a solution to the agitation of our staff,” Adaramaja said.

AbdulRazaq, who was represented by Deputy Governor, Kayode Alabi, said the administration has unlocked the goldmine of opportunities to revitalise basic education in the state with the renewed relationship with the Universal Basic Education Commission – after seven years of official blacklist of Kwara.

“Except for the 12-seater bus which has been donated to us by Unity Bank Plc, all these facilities are some of the gains of our renewed relationship with the Universal Basic Education Commission,” AbdulRazaq said.

AbdulRazaq also acknowledged the prudent management of scarce resources by the leadership of KWSUBEB, leading to procurement of 1,500 cartoons of white chalks from Kwara State College of Education (Technical), Lafiagi.

“These tools will not only improve the standard of basic education in the state, they will also provide an enabling environment for adequate monitoring and supervision of teaching and learning activities across our schools. These new infrastructures will complement the ongoing renovation and remodeling of classrooms across over 600 schools in the state,” he said.

The state chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Comrade Olu Adewara commended Governor AbdulRazaq for his interest in promoting the welfare of teachers and development of education sector in the state.

“This is a good development. It is a good news to us, coming at a very good time. I believe everyone hearing this will appreciate the Governor for being so good to us. We want to appreciate him in all respects, particularly on this promotion exercise so pronounced,” he said.

The items commissioned are: one 18 p-seater hummer bus for Quality Assurance Department; 5 Hilux Van for project monitoring; 45 Bajaj boxers motorcycles for schools supervision; 40 Samsung galaxy tablets for quality assurance, 10 sets of computer system for project monitoring; 20 digital calipers for project unit; 1 projector and instructional materials for schools and library books and shelves for basic schools to encourage reading culture.

From Attah Ede Makurdi

The Benue Investment and Property Company Limited (BIPC), on Wednesday, obtained judicial administrative order to individuals who have defaulted on the terms of payment for the BIPC Evergreen Estates located at Nyiman and Northbank axis in Makurdi of Benue State.

The Managing Director of the company, Dr.

Raymond Asemakaha, explained that the affected persons were earlier given a sufficient grace period before the judicial process of ejection was activated.

Dr.Asemakaha in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Makurdi, the decision to eject the allottees followed the expiration of the period of grace conveyed to the allottees/occupants of BIPC Evergreen Housing Estates.

He said affected allottees are yet to pay the purchase price as stipulated in the Provisional Offer letters, adding that the management is pleased to inform the general public that the company has activated administrative and Judicial processes of ejecting such allottees/occupants.

“As a business entity with a mandate to maximize profits for the shareholder, Management is compelled to explore this line of action in order to minimize the losses associated with the continued occupation of the estates by such allottees/occupants.”

“The ejection exercise is not in any way aimed at victimizing the allottees /occupants as the company has exhausted the internal remedies provided in the provisional offer letter including but not limited to verbal and written persuasion to the allottees/occupants of the Estates to pay the purchase price annually or monthly but to no avail.”

“Members of the public are therefore enjoined not to be misled by the unsubstantiated reasons advanced by such allottees as noncompliance with the ejection exercise will attract punitive legal consequences” the statement concluded.

Give Tinubu More Time to Solve Challenges – Gowon

Former President Yakubu Gowon

Retired Gen. Yakubu Gowon has urged Nigerians to give more time to the  President Bola Tinubu-led administration, toward resolving the various challenges confronting the country.

He added that it was too early in the life of the administration to begin to resolve all the inherited crisis in different sectors.

Gowon said this after a meeting with Tinubu at the Presidential Villa on Wednesday in Abuja.

“Well, I was telling him that no Nigerian leader that get there and will not have all the report of what is being said about him.

“But certainly, there’s no doubt from what one hears and what one sees on the various media.

I think the government is trying its best to deal with the various problems of the country.

“Don’t you worry,  you will get criticised but people who get there know better than you know.

“I think all what one can say is that Nigerians, we’ve got to give the President time to get things really done. And it is too early to say absolute result, perfect result will be achieved now.”

Gowon said  the meeting with the President also centred on the issue of the challenges facing the ECOWAS subregions, adding that it must be settled amicably.

“Being the surviving leader, or founding fathers of the ECOWAS, I think we had to discuss some of his plans in order to see what can be done to bring the matter under control,” Gowon said.

He debunked claims on social media that he refused to attend an event organised by ECOWAS, adding that this was probably due to miscommunication.

“I think there was a miscommunication but then, it gave the opportunity for the  President to call me so that we can discuss what I was to do.”(NAN)
