Former Head of State General Abdulsalami Abubakar

 

The National Peace Committee (NPC) headed by a former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd), on Monday urged the presidential candidates of the 2023 elections to caution their spokespersons over the rising tension and attacks during electioneering.

The caution was contained in a statement on Monday jointly signed by Gen. Abdulsalami A. Abubakar (retd); Convener, NPC, Most Rev. Matthew Hassan Kukah; and Head of Secretariat, NPC, Fr. Atta Barkindo.

The statement said the members of the NPC have watched with utter sadness and deep concern, the deterioration in the communication of fundamental issues among the politicians since INEC lifted the ban on political campaigns on September 28th, 2022.

Aggressive and abusive language only diminishes the integrity of the individuals, their candidates and their parties. Nigerians should be ready to punish instigators of violence by isolating them or their candidates,” the NPC said.
It said that Nigerians are genuinely concerned, troubled and disappointed by the conduct and attitude of some of the political actors in the last few weeks.

It lamented that it is evident that some of the actors have not learnt any lessons from the past.

“There is an increasing tone of desperation, if not incitement, among some of the contestants and members of their parties. Intra and inter party wrangling still persist, with occasions of violence. In desperation, some selfish political actors use these strategies to pursue their frivolous ambitions in the courts.

When all the presidential candidates and the party chairmen signed the peace accord, they were committed to infusing a sense of decency, civility and nobility in the political process.

“The political actors cannot pretend to be oblivious of the content of the peace accord that they signed. Nigerians expect that as men and women of honour, they were committed to keeping their words,” the committee said.

The peace committee noted that security agencies have continued to do their best as they monitor security developments across the country.

The NPC also urged the media to remain focused in managing information.

By Ozumi Abdul

Centre for information Technology and Development (CITAD) on Thursday concluded the training of inmates in the remand home in Goron Dutse, Kano state on ICT and phone repairs.

The training which lasted for six weeks was segmented into three weeks each, with the first segment dedicated to ICT training and the other for phone repairs.

While speaking, the Deputy Director of CITAD, Ahmad Abdullahi Yakasai, said his organization has been combing the entire country in the bid to bring technological development to bear upon every area of humanity, but however discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined.

Yakasai noted that this informed the reason for his organization’s training of the underaged inmates of the remand home, because the inmates are not enjoying the benefits of ICT.

He said that CITAD finds it imperative to organise a training of such nature to build the capacities of the inmates, adding that unemployment might be the reason why they are in detention.

He exuded the confidence that with the training, the inmates would not only be self employed, but employers of other people when they are freed from detention.

“Well, as you are aware CITAD is a Centre For Information Technology And Development, we aim to use technology to bring development to the people. We have been working around the country, but we later discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined, not deriving the benefit of technology, and that is the reason we organise this training to build their capacities.

“Also we think that most of them, it might be the issue of unemployment that brought them here. So by the time they leave here, they will be able to stand on their feet and to employ others”, Yakasai said.

On her part, the representative from the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Kano state,Hajiya Abdullahi Hafsat expressed her happiness towards the efforts of CITAD, as well as enjoining the beneficiaries to make use of the opportunity when they returned to their various homes.

Also, the officer in charge of the remand home, Mallam Musa Muhammad Tarauni commanded CITAD for their gesture, promising that the remand home will continue to partner with the organization.
