Gov. Abubakar Bello of Niger on Saturday took his campaign train to Evangelical Church of Winning All (ECWA), Gwada and donated N5 million to the congregation.


               
           
               
                   

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) report that the governor had earlier paid a visit to Alhaji Musa Mohammed, District Head of Sarkin Pawa.


               
           
               
                   

The governor visited the church where women were holding their 7th Annual District Council Church (DCC) Conference.


               
           
               
                   

Bello appealed to the women to vote for him as the governor and other candidates of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the forthcoming elections.


               
           
               
                   

He called on the women to pray for the peace of the country and a successful election.


               
           
               
                   

I understand that there is a land you are trying to purchase in Gwada. I am donating N5 million through the pastor for the land.


               
           
               
                   

I appeal to you to use this conference to pray for peace of the country and pray for a peaceful forthcoming general elections. We need your prayers and support to succeed, he said.


               
           
               
                   

The governor also directed the state Commissioner of Finance to release N10 million with immediate effect for construction of a new palace for the District Head of Sarkin Pawa.


               
           
               
                   

He said that government had put in place measures to address security challenges facing the area.


               
           
               
                   

He advised the people to be wary of strangers coming into their communities and report any security threat to the appropriate authority.


               
           
               
                   

Responding, the District Head of Sarkin Pawa, commended the achievements of the present administration on security.


               
           
               
                   

He appealed to the governor to establish a sub-area security unit to tackle cases of armed banditry and kidnapping in the area.


               
           
               
                   

Mohammed urged the governor to deploy doctors and provide drugs to Sarkin Pawa General Hospital as well as renovate the Central Primary School in the area.


               
           
               
                   

Since the hospital was upgraded to a general hospital, no doctor or drugs have been provided and majority of people from communities around patronise the hospital. We need doctors and drugs in the hospital, he said.

Pay Us Our Benefits Before You Leave, Radio Lagos, Television Retirees Beg Ambode








Akinwunmi Ambode, Governor of Lagos State, has been implored to pay some retired workers of the Radio Lagos and Lagos television their benefits before leaving office on May 29.


The passionate appeal was made by Biodun Akinbusuyi, spokesman of the the group, on Tuesday while fielding questions from newsmen in Lagos. 


Akinbusuyi said that they were transferred from two parastatal-agencies to main service in 2016.


He added that the Lagos State Pension Commission returned the retirees’ files to the two parastatal-agencies and said their terminal benefits should  be paid by the organisations.


“We are appealing to Ambode to assist the parastatals-agencies by approving the terminal benefits, which is not up to N100 million, before the administration winds down," he said. “We are not more than 20 retirees affected by this development."


At the last congress of the Lagos State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Kehinde Bamigbetan, the Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, had promised the retirees that their terminal benefits would be paid.


He said the ministry would assist in ensuring that issues causing the delay in treating the files of the affected retirees would be sorted out.


He said though Radio Lagos/Lagos television are financially insolvent to pay the retirees’ terminal benefits, the Governor would do his utmost before handing over.
