Obasanjo Laments High Cost Of DieselOnline News Source: Channels Television
Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo has lamented the rising cost of diesel, saying it has adversely affected his fish business.
Speaking during a southwest fish farmers’ congress on Tuesday at the presidential library (OOPL) in Ogun State, Obasanjo said the high diesel price may turn fish farmers into bankruptcy.
Putting the current price of diesel at N800 a litre, the ex-President said the production of a kilogram of fish is N1,400.
He said farmers must not sell less than N1,500 as anything short of that would lead to “outright loss”.
According to Obasanjo, fish production would be out of reach, and “then people will be producing fish outside Nigeria and dump it here”.Photo Source: Google
Falana Takes A Swipe At Presidency, Reveals How Buhari Is ‘Failing’ To Address Security CrisisOnline News Source: Channels Television
Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has accused the government of President Muhammadu Buhari of “failing to satisfactorily address the crisis of insecurity in the country, and doing nothing to end the mismanagement of the economy under his watch.”
Falana stated this in a paper titled Good Governance or Misgovernance: The Contract Called Democracy, and delivered yesterday at the 50th anniversary interactive session held by the Abeokuta Club in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Falana said, “In spite of the decentralisation of police powers at the centre the Federal Government has continued to kick against the creation of state police service on the ground that it is unconstitutional!”
He also said, “No doubt, based on the virtual collapse of the security architecture of the neocolonial State, the Federal Government has grudgingly allowed state government to create state or regional security outfits. But they are not allowed to bear arms.”
According to Falana, “the personnel of the regional security outfits who are armed with cutlasses and dane guns are expected to commit suicide by confronting AK 47 bearing terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, herders and robbers.”
