Buhari administration spends N2.3 trillion to suppress pandemic effect ― Minister

Published

Hello GPT

The Federal Government had spent N2.3 trillion in an effort to dampen the blow of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country, the Minister of State, Budget and National Planning, Clem Agba, has revealed.
.
“In spite of the impact of COVID-19 and dwindling revenue from oil, our strategy was to expand government’s activities to cushion the effect of the pandemic with the total estimated stimulus package by the Federal Government of N2.3 trillion,” Mr Agba said at the 4th National Treasury Workshop organised by the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation in Uyo on Tuesday.
“These packages consisted, to a large extent, of a combination of fiscal and monetary policies, sectoral interventions, and social programmes.
“The fiscal and monetary policies were support to states, businesses, households and individuals through grants, tax relief, payroll support, tariff reductions and direct support to the health sector.”
The minister added that the Federal Government also worked on several aspects of public housing and agriculture, to name some examples.
“The real sector interventions were focused on mass agriculture, mass housing, public works, off-grid solar power installations and support to small businesses,” Mr Agba said.
“The government is creating an enabling macroeconomic environment by eliminating barriers and putting in place many incentives to attract investments.”

Robert Sarver to sell Phoenix Suns and Mercury after N-word scandal

Published

on

Robert Sarver will be selling both the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Mercury after an NBA investigation revealed that he used the n-word multiple times during his tenure as an owner in the leagues. The NBA investigation also revealed that Sarver made inappropriate comments toward women, and didn’t treat his employees fairly or equally. Commissioner Adam Silver who fined him $10 million and suspended him one year over the offence, had insisted the punishment was strong enough. Sarver however announced on Wednesday morning September 21, that he is “beginning the process of seeking buyers for the Suns and the Mercury”, just after fans and multiple star players including LeBron James, Chris Paul and Draymond Green called for more severe sanctions.  He said in the statement;  “Words that I deeply regret now overshadow nearly two decades of building organizations that brought people together — and strengthened the Phoenix area — through the unifying power of professional men’s and women’s basketball.”But in our current unforgiving climate, it has become painfully clear that that is no longer possible — that whatever good I have done, or could still do, is outweighed by things I have said in the past.”I do not want to be a distraction to these two teams and the fine people who work so hard to bring the joy and excitement of basketball to fans around the world.”I want what’s best for these two organizations, the players, the employees, then fans, the community, my fellow owners, the NBA and the WNBA. This is the best course of action for everyone.”In the meantime, I will continue to work on becoming a better person, and continuing to support the community in meaningful ways. Thank you for continuing to root for the Suns and the Mercury, embracing the power that sports has to bring us together.”The post Robert Sarver to sell Phoenix Suns and Mercury after N-word scandal appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

Court refuses to grant Baba Ijesha‘s bail application pending appeal

Published

on

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of Ikeja Special Offences Court on Wednesday September 21, refused to grant a bail application filed by convicted Nollywoord actor, James Olarewaju, alias Baba Ijesha. Ijesha had sought bail for an appeal to the five-year conviction for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl. Taiwo struck out the bail application on grounds of the actor not meeting exceptional circumstances and criteria.  The judge said;  “The applicant must show special and exceptional circumstances because the term given to him is five years which is to run concurrently.“There is no evidence that the appeal has been entered and there is no indication before this court that the court will not treat the case expeditiously.“It is in the view of this court that the applicant has failed to show special circumstances to warrant him bail because he is facing a serious crime.“In view of this case, I am inclined to refuse the bail application of the applicants pending appeal.”  The post Court refuses to grant Baba Ijeshas bail application pending appeal appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
