Good morning! Here is today’s summary from Nigerian Newspapers:
1. Telecommunication services have been shut down in Katsina State. At least 13 Local Government Areas are affected by the development which is not unconnected with the ongoing security operations against bandits in the North West.
2. Bandits escaping the current military onslaught in Zamfara state have killed six persons and abducted several others in Tureta local government area of Sokoto state. The Deputy Governor of Sokoto, Maniru Dan’iya, who visited the area, consoled them over the incident and reiterated their commitment to end banditry in the state.
3. The Federal Government has said it will not allow any separatist group to disrupt the forthcoming November 6 governorship election in Anambra State. The National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj-Gen. Babagana Monguno (Retd) said this at the third quarterly meeting of the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja on Thursday.
4. President Muhammadu Buhari has advocated for measures to prevent coups, describing the recent ouster of government on the continent as troubling. Speaking at a virtual Extraordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS member-states, Buhari called for general suspension of nations where the military seizes power.
5. The Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday passed the state’s Value Added Tax (VAT) bill and the bill that prohibits open cattle grazing. The Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, directed the acting Clerk, Olalekan Onafeko, to transmit a clean copy to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for assent.
6. The United Nations (UN) has warned that “the collective future of Nigeria is under threat” given rising insecurity and spate of attacks by bandits on schools. The warning comes against the backdrop of recent coordinated killings and kidnappings of schoolchildren across Kaduna, Kebbi, Katsina, Niger and Zamfara states, leading to the forced closure of schools in these states. United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Nigeria, Mr Edward Kallon, stated this in a statement on the 2021 International Day to Protect Education from Attack.
7. Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has said attempts by the Federal Government to establish farm estates across the country was another way of bringing back the rejected cattle colony and RUGA. This was contained in a statement issued on Thursday by its spokesman, Mr. Jare Ajayi.
8. Attorneys–general of the 36 states have sued Abubakar Malami, minister of justice and attorney-general of the federation (AGF) over alleged failure to remit funds generated from stamp duties into state coffers. The states are arguing that they are the sole authority to collect stamp duties and not the federal government.
9. Justice Tijjani Ringim of the Federal High Court, Lagos, has affirmed Mrs Evelyn Joshua as a trustee of Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), in line with the church’s Constitution which prescribes a minimum of three trustees for the church. The judge affirmed Mrs Joshua as a trustee of the church, while ruling on an application brought before the court by concerned and committed members of the church.
10. The naira continued its downward spiral on the parallel market on Thursday, selling for 543 to the dollar. While Bureau de Change operators in Abuja bought dollars at N540, it was sold for N543.
