PLEASE!! Ikeja Electric begs Public to abstain from activities within Power Lines

In a renewed commitment to its high safety standards, Ikeja Electric Plc has cautioned the public in its network against building structures and engaging in social and economic activities under power lines.

The company said the specific clearance/distance which the public must maintain away from a 33/11KV lines is 5.5 meters (20ft) on both sides, while for 132KV lines, the distance must be 15 meters (50ft) on both sides and 330KV lines must have a clearance of 25metres (60ft) on both sides.

The electricity distribution company (Disco) Head of Quality, Safety, Health and Environment (QHSE), Jamiu Badmos, explained that carrying out social and economic activities under power lines exposes people’s lives to danger, leading to the risk of electrocution.

According to him, fatality within the energy sector can be prevented if the public religiously adhere to precautions and avoid activities close to electrical installations.

“As a responsible service provider, we are aware of our obligation to ensure that every resident within our network is kept safe, especially bearing in mind the hazardous nature of electricity so we are using this medium to remind the public that electrical installations are harmful and must be avoided as much as is possible. Our appeal to customers to avoid activities under power lines must be taken seriously, especially as the integrity of old cables cannot always be guaranteed,” he said.

Badmos revealed that even with the huge resources the Disco has spent on enlightenment campaigns to sensitize the public on inherent dangers of life-threatening activities, some people have remained adamant.

He further called for the intervention of the government and relevant stakeholders in stemming this “ugly development” by declaring activities under power line as illegal and moving people and markets away from the danger spots to save lives and property.

Ekweremadu reveals how thieves broke into Senator’s Car, takes huge sum of Money

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, on Thursday, shocked his colleagues when he revealed how some thieves broke into the luxury car of a senator and stole huge sums of money.

He lamented that the multi-million naira Close Circuit Television devise installed in the National Assembly was not functional as of the time of the incident.

Ekweremadu stated this while responding to a point of order raised by Senator Oluremi Tinubu, complaining about a burglary case which occurred in her office during the yuletide and New Year break.

The deputy senate president who presided over the session sympathized with Tinubu, but noted that the incident in her office was not an isolated matter because a similar incident happened in the House of Representatives.

He said, “A colleague came for a transaction and left some money in his car during the Christmas break. Some people broke into the car and removed some money.

“Since he parked his car close to the main Senate complex, he thought that the CCTV camera would capture the activities of the burglars but regrettably, the CCTV did not work when it was checked and it is really embarrassing.”

He therefore directed the National Assembly management to investigate all burglary issues that had been reported so far, and furnish the leadership of the federal parliament, the outcome of its investigations as soon as possible..

Tinubu, who came under order 43 (personal explanation), had raised the alarm that the incident in her office was giving her serious concern.

He said, “My office was closed on 7th December because of my constituency engagements. My staff resumed on Wednesday January 9 and reported a case of burglary in my office.”

She urged the Senate to direct the National Assembly management to replace all the items stolen in her office.

BOKO HARAM ATTACKS! Do not let the insurgent attack spread to other parts of the region, it will be very bad, Religious leaders plead with government, security operatives

The Co-Chairman of Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, has spread the allarm that the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East may spread to Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa and Taraba states in no time.

He added that the spread could lead to the displacement of thousands of people in the states.

 

 

Onuoha made the call at the 2nd IDFP General Assembly in Abuja yesterday, stating that the security challenges facing the country, including kidnapping in the South-West, armed robbery and militancy in the South-East, and South-South needed to be urgently addressed.

The cleric said the perceived lopsidedness in the leadership of the security forces should be addressed, pointing out that the security situation during the 2015 elections was not as bad as it is today.

He said, “In Borno and Yobe states, the Boko Haram insurgency has taken a dangerous dimension, leading to increasing loss of soldiers and policemen. This sad situation could spread to states like Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa and Taraba leading to the displacement thousands of people who will seek refuge in the overcrowded Internally Displaced Persons camps.”

 

 

The Bishop urged the faith community to pray for the success of the forthcoming elections and peace in the country.

Onuoha said, “We have built more powerful individuals while our institutions remain weak. Those who have presented themselves for elective positions should be willing to accept the outcomes of the elections.”

Sagay gives more details why CJN Walter Onnoghen should be tried by The Tribunal and not NJC

Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof Itse Sagay, (SAN), has explained why Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Onnoghen’s assets non-declaration charge cannot first be determined by the National Judicial Council (NJC).

In a report by The Nation, the eminent Law professor, citing constitutional provisions, argued that not every offence committed by a judicial officer must first be brought before the NJC.

He said: “By the very logic of the powers of the NJC, cases arising out of a breach of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act and the Code of Conduct provision in the Constitution cannot come before the NJC.

“If the NJC first decides the matter before the defendant is arraigned in court or at the Tribunal, what happens if the NJC finds the defendant liable and removes him from office as a Judge?  In that case, he ceases to be a Judicial Officer as well as a Public Officer.

“Can he, therefore, be tried as a public officer before the Code of Conduct Tribunal?  The answer is no, because he is no longer a public officer.

“The extant provisions of the Constitution and the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act would be rendered nugatory by a prior NJC involvement.”

Faulting the arguments that the prosecution ought to comply with the Court of Appeal decision in the case of Nganjiwa vs. F.R.N., the PACAC chair said: “It should be noted first that this judgment contradicts the clear provisions of the Code of Conduct as established in the Constitution which gives the Code of Conduct Tribunal jurisdiction over all public officers, including the Chief Justice of Nigeria.  (See 5th Schedule, Part One, of the 1999 Constitution).

“Moreover, the Court of Appeal in Nganjiwa’s case was directing its judgment to a judicial officer committing an offence in the process of carrying out his duties as a judge in a court namely: demanding bribe from a party to the case before him.

“Therefore, the ratio decidendi in this case is much narrower in scope than is being touted by our all mighty Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs).  Filling an Assets Declaration Form is totally outside the ambit of a judicial officer’s work. It applies to all public officers.

“If one may ask – should a drunken judge behind a car steering wheel kill an innocent pedestrian, will the offence be taken before the NJC, before the police can act on the crime?

“Indeed, in spite of its defects, the Court of Appeal judgment in the Nganjiwa’s case expressly limited reference to the NJC only to cases of a judicial officers’ misconduct in court whilst exercising his authority as judge in case before him in court.

“According to the court: ‘It must be expressly stated that if a Judicial officer commits theft, fraud, murder or manslaughter, arson and the likes, which are crimes committed outside the scope of performance of his official functions, he may be arrested, interrogated and prosecuted accordingly by the State directly without recourse to the NJC. These classes of criminal act are not envisaged and captured by the provisions of paragraph 21, Part One of the Third Schedule.’

“This demonstrates the hollowness and invalidity of the argument that every offence committed by a judicial officer must first be brought before the NJC, before the law enforcement agencies can entertain it.”

Besides, Sagay believes that the NJC cannot be expected to be fair in Justice Onnoghen’s case.

“Almost all the Senior Advocates of Nigeria have argued that even in a case involving the breach of the Code of Conduct, for which the law has already made express provisions, the matter shall be taken to the NJC rather than to the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

“They can’t be serious.  They must obviously be speaking tongue in cheek.  Even a baby, three months old, must realise that no one can get justice against the CJN at the NJC.  The CJN is not only the Chairman of the NJC, he is also the appointor of 20 out of the NJC’s 23 members.  The CJN is the NJC.

“Only a grossly ignorant man or an extremely mischievous one could seriously suggest that a matter involving the CJN should be brought before the NJC for adjudication.

“Therefore, the whole idea of taking the present case to the NJC is a nonstarter, for that would make the CJN the Chief Judge of his own case – a clear violation, not only of the Constitution, but also of a long standing common law principle coming all the way from MAGNA CARTER in the year 1215,” the PACAC chairman said.

Sagay was of the view that the substance of the charge against Chief Justice Onnoghen “is deliberately being abandoned by the SANs and some other lawyers”

“Why is Nigeria such a Theatre of the Absurd?  Today, we are only talking about preliminary objections, interim injunctions, challenge of jurisdiction, wrong procedure, etc., etc.  Nobody is talking about the substantive issue any longer.  That is now lost in the sands of time.

“Did he do it?  Did he not do it?  The questions we should all be asking are contained in the front page of The Nation Newspaper of Tuesday 15th January, 2019: Did the CJN fail to submit a written declaration of all his assets and liabilities within prescribed period of three months after being sworn it?

“Did he omit to declare a domiciliary (US dollar) account No. 870001062650 maintained with Standard Chartered Bank Nigeria Limited? Did he falsely omit to declare a domiciliary (Euro) account No. 93001062686 maintained with the bank?

“Did he falsely omit to declare a domiciliary (Pound Sterling) account No. 285001062679 with the Bank?

Did he falsely omit to declare an e-Saver Savings (naira) account No. 5001062963 maintained with the bank? Did he falsely fail to declare naira Account 010001062667?”

Sagay advised Nigerians not to be distracted by what he called a vicious and fraudulent campaign intended to sacrifice the substance and justice of the case on the altar of technicalities, adding that the truth must not be the first casualty in the matter.

Man Shot By Gunmen In Benue (Photos)

A young man identified as Achin Vitalis is currently fighting for life after he was shot by gunmen suspected to be cultists inside a vehicle in Makurdi, Benue State capital.

Photos: Young man shot by suspected cultists in Benue

According to a friend of the victim, Sylvester, who shared the story on Facebook, the driver of the bus was the main target. Read his post below: These days, we no longer board and alight commercial vehicles freely. We no longer use commercial motorcycles (Okada) freely. We no longer move around nor go to the market freely. This is in the name of cult boys looking for the blood of their opposition confraternity members to suck and sometimes steal from innocent people.

Photos: Young man shot by suspected cultists in Benue

Some of these operations take place in broad daylight without alteration. My bother, friend and former neighbour ACHIN VITALIS was shut in a bus by some group of boys.

He was not the target but the driver was. This guy is an innocent fellow who can’t even harm an ant but he took bullets for a guy whom he know nothing about. I wonder why a brother/sister would gladly sell his/her soul to the devil. I also wonder if this cult thing have life insurance. My brother and sister please resist the temptation of being butchered on the street like a chicken. Those who kill by sword will be killed by the sword.
