… as Edo takes delivery of fire truck

BENIN CITY – The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said that the state government is strengthening synergy with the Federal Fire Service for a robust enforcement mechanism to prevent and contain fire disasters in the state.

The governor gave the assurance at the inauguration of a six-thousand-litre capacity firefighting truck deployed by the Federal Fire Service, at Government House in Benin City.

Obaseki assured, “We would continue to rely on you to help us in terms of our design to respond to fire disasters in the state. One of the measures put in place in the state is to ensure we have hydrants and water sources in most public places particularly at the market.

“Our Command and Control Centre set up to fight fire would be linked with your Centre to respond to fire disasters in the state.”

He expressed appreciation to the Federal Controller General of the Fire Service for assisting the state in managing fire outbreaks, adding, “He promptly rose to the occasion and instantly deployed a sophisticated truck from the neighboring state and deployed officers to support and train the State Fire Service.”

Earlier, the Controller General, Dr. Ibrahim Liman, who was represented by the Assistant Controller General, Federal Operation, Thompson Mohammed, said the deployment of the firefighting assets to states is in line with the resolve of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the safety of lives and property.

He added that the fire-fighting truck deployed to Edo State will ensure a robust partnership with the state government to minimise fire threats in the state....

BENIN CITY – The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, is due to appear in court tomorrow, July 7, 2020 to stand trial for an eight-count charge of money laundering to the tune of N700 million meant to prosecute the 2015 general election, in a case preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Ize-Iyamu is being tried along with four others before Honourable Justice J. M. Umar at the Federal High Court in Benin-city.

The EFCC, in Suit No. FHC/BE21C/ 2016, said Ize-Iyamu and four others allegedly received public funds illegally to the tune of N700 million for the purpose of the 2015 general election, contrary to the provisions of the EFCC Act and the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act.

The Court had on June 18, 2020 validated the corruption charges against the defendants and adjourned the case to Thursday, July, 02, 2020, for further hearing, but the trial was stalled last Thursday due to the absence of the trial judge. Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was also reported absent in Court.

Counsel to the 3rd defendant, Pascal Ugbome, had told journalists in Benin City, that parties in the suit picked, July 07, 2020 as the date for hearing.

Speaking last Thursday, Ugbome explained: “It is a normal occurrence in court activities. It is nothing unusual and nothing unnatural for the court to adjourn the matter. The court has said that their hands are full, and so they have to reschedule the matter according to their convenience.”

Other defendants in the suit include former Deputy Governor of Edo State, Mr. Lucky Imasuen; Efe Erimuoghae Anthony and two others....

…Insists report is fake news

BENIN CITY – The Edo State Chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) has condemned in strong terms an online publication, purportedly made by one Suleiman Abdul who claimed to be a teacher in Akoko Edo Local Government Area of the state, aimed at maligning the union and the state governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki.

In a statement by the Union’s chairman, Pius O. Okhueleigbe and the Assistant Secretary General, Moni Mike Modesty Itua, the NUT dissociated itself from the impostor, describing the publication as the handwork of mischief makers.

They said the union conducted an investigation into the source of the malicious publication and discovered that: “There is no teacher in Akoko Edo Local Government Area known by the name Suleiman Abdul; which means that the publication is the handwork of mischief makers.

“The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) Membership Register does not have Suleiman Abdul as a member of the Union. Therefore, as an impostor, the author of the publication does not have any locus standi to write for or on behalf of Edo State Teachers or the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) Edo State Wing; for such powers in accordance with the Union’s Constitution, are vested in the State Chairman and State Secretary.”

The statement further reads: “For the purpose of the 2019 World Teachers Day National Award bestowed on His Excellency, Mr. Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, which was twisted in the said publication, the Union wishes to emphasise that a very diligent and painstaking exercise of screening/evaluation was carried out by its constitutionally empowered Award Committee (as contained in Article 10(vii); in Abuja vis-à-vis the use of stringent benchmarks for determining who wins the Annual Award amongst all the Governors nominated.

“At the end, Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki came tops as the 2019 Best Governor in Nigeria due to his uncommon and unprecedented transformation of Basic and Technical Education in Edo State within three years of his administration; which also received and has continued to receive both national and international commendations and adoption. The Award was never a purchased one but given by a very reputable Teachers Organisation to a very responsive, foresighted, humane, people-centered and knowledge-driven Governor”

It added: “Nonetheless, the pending issues of teachers’ welfare in Edo State are already being jointly attended to by both the Union and the State Government. Therefore, any individual or group that has misgivings or hatred against Edo State Government or the Executive Governor of the State and his appointees, should not hide under any cloak or drag the NUT into it, but seek redress by exploring the laws of the land.

“The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) Edo State Wing, hereby informs the general public and readers of the evil publication earlier mentioned, (or any other ill-motivated publication(s) that may surface after now); to totally disregard the contents, their intents and discard them into the trash-bin.”...

BENIN CITY – The Edo State Government has reaffirmed its commitment towards the protection and welfare of the state’s health workforce, especially frontline workers who are putting their lives on the line to support the government’s efforts at containing the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the state.

Speaking to journalists in Benin City, Commissioner for Health, Dr. Patrick Okundia, commended the resilience, sacrifice and commitment of health workers in Edo State, noting that they have shown uncommon resolve in curtailing the spread of the virus and protecting other citizens during the outbreak.

The commissioner disclosed that a total of 201 health workers have tested positive to the virus since the outbreak of the pandemic in the state, urging the frontline staff to ensure safety precautions are taken when treating any patient.

Okundia, who reassured that the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration will not relent in ensuring the welfare of the state’s health workforce, said the government will continue to intensify efforts to contain the pandemic across communities in the state and protect Edo people.

He, however, harped on the need to protect the elderly and persons with underlying ailments who are vulnerable and most affected by the disease in the state.

While noting that persons who are aged 60 and above make up only five per cent of the state’s population, he added that over 50 per cent of the deaths recorded so far fall within the age category of the population.

Okundia said the state has discharged 87 more COVID-19 patients who have now tested negative to the virus following their treatment at the state isolation facilities, noting: “Edo has now recorded a total of 805 discharged persons, 6,470 suspected cases, 1,383 confirmed cases and 47 deaths.”

The commissioner added: “We urge residents to support the government’s efforts at containing the pandemic by complying with all guidelines. Stay at home and observe all precautionary measures against the spread of the infectious disease, including regular handwashing with soap under running water and the use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers. Cover your mouth and nose properly when sneezing and/or coughing”....
