President Goodluck Jonathan with Gov. Amosun at the flag off of the reconstruction of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

REMARKS BY HIS EXCELLENCY, PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN, GCFR, AT THE FLAG OFF, FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION AND EXPANSION WORKS ON THE LAGOS-IBADAN DUAL CARRIAGEWAY SECTIONS I AND II ON FRIDAY 5TH JULY, 2013 AT SHAGAMU INTERCHANGE.

PROTOCOLS:

1.            We are gathered here today, to flag-off the reconstruction and expansion of sections I and II of the Lagos-Ibadan dual carriageway, one of the busiest and most important roads in our Nation.

2.            This event fulfils my promise to accelerate these projects after the termination of the concession agreement between the Federal Government and Bi-Courtney for the reconstruction of the road. It also reflects our commitment as an administration to practically and relentlessly meet the yearnings of our people and also to improve our national transport infrastructure.

3.            The Lagos-Ibadan expressway, constructed, between 1974 – 1978, is among the earliest dual carriageways in our Country. The road is an important economic artery that connects our Nation’s economic nerve centre: sea ports; airports and other vital businesses to many of the states of our federation. At the regional level, the road constitutes a section of the strategic Trans Saharan Highway, which links Lagos on the Atlantic Ocean to Algiers on the Mediterranean Sea.

4.            This strategic national infrastructure is therefore of great socio-economic importance, not only to Nigeria, but also to the people of Africa. It is for this reason and noting that a comprehensive renovation and reconstruction was long overdue that  the Federal Government in 2009, acting in good faith,  entered into a concession agreement under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme to deliver on the road and alleviate the hardships on millions of road users.

Fashola signs law to regulate traffic administration in Lagos

…Says law will solve environmental, public safety, security challenges

Gov. Fashola. Photo Credit: nanngronline.com

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) has signed into law a new bill that will regulate traffic operation and management in the State to compel motorists to be more law abiding and keep to traffic rules.

 

The new law, “Lagos State Road Traffic Law” will according to the Governor, make the citizens live better as it will make the road safer for them, improve their life expectancy and solve their environmental, public health, safety issues and many of the insecurity challenges now affecting them.

 

The Governor who assented the bill at the Banquet Hall of Lagos House, Ikeja before a large gathering made up of the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Adeyemi Ikuforiji, the Chief Judge of Lagos State, Hon Justice Ayo Philip and members of the State House of Assembly said his government provided the law because of its belief that transportation is a critical hub of civilization since as he said, life will be improved if the State gets transportation right.

 

“Many things in our life will be improved such as cost of food, life expectancy, health and so many. I believe that if we succeed with this law, our state will change for the better.

 

The law he said became necessary to bring back decency in our people saying, “Different people come into Lagos and we see them openly urinating and defecating on the road and this must stop. People hanging clothes to dry on our highways and bus stops must desist because the traffic and sanitation officers will go out and enforce the sanitation laws. The traffic law is only a metaphor to other laws that the State Government will enforce”, he emphasized. Read more

MTN gets NCC’s Query on unreported Service failure in Lagos

20120504-105445.jpg

The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, alleged midweek that the MTN network in Lagos area suffered a breakdown but the operator did not report the incident neither did it inform its subscribers about the failure in accordance with prescribed regulation on such matters.

According to reliable sources the Commission received complaints that MTN subscribers in the Lagos area had experienced protracted difficulties in the use of their phones and upon investigation, it found that the MTN’s switch was down, a situation which ought to be communicated to the Commission, and brought to the knowledge of the subscribers by the phone company.

A query issued to the Company and made public by the Commission said, specifically, that “It has (also) been brought to our notice that the MTN Switch in Lagos is down and MTN has neither informed its subscribers, nor communicated this unfortunate development to the Commission as required”. It demanded explanation.

The Commission warned that failure to respond as directed might result in invocation of its powers to sanction MTN appropriately.

Subsidy Removal: National Youth Emergency Meetings in Abuja, Lagos, Jos, Kano and Ibadan!

Fellow Nigerian Youth,

The time is NOW!

Enough of all the grammars and ranting on Facebook and Twitter!

By removing subsidy on PMS yesterday, the GEJ led Federal Government has simply drawn a battle line with the Nigerian people, most especially the Nigerian youth who constitute 70% of the populace.

Removing Fuel Subsidy on a New Year Day is worse than the Christmas Day bombings by Boko Haram. . . This is the mother of all bombings!!!

The action of the FG yesterday is a slap on our faces and an insult on our collective intelligence as the largest constituency in the nation.

To effectively give a unified response to this latest assault from the government, we would be holding a National Youth Emergency Meeting in Abuja, Lagos and Ibadan.

Find below the proposed Agenda for the meetings:

A. Introduction
B. Purpose of Meeting

A festival of talent! Thousands show up for Lagos auditions of Nigerian idol season II

PRESS RELEASE

LAGOS, NIGERIA 

November 8, 2011

 

Thousands show up for Lagos auditions of Nigerian idol season II

Thousands show up for Lagos auditions of Nigerian idol season II

It was a spectacular showcase of talents as Nigeria’s biggest music reality show Nigerian Idol held its final Season II auditions at the Dream Studios in Lagos. From Friday November4 to Sunday November 6, thousands of young talents trooped in to take a shot at being the next Nigerian Idol. The-3 day event recorded a massive turnout as registration lines stretched across Bamako Street and up to the main road, obstructing traffic in some instances.

The audition train started in Abuja in October, breezing through thousands of talents in Enugu and Port Harcourt along with Etisalat-sponsored mini-concerts which provided extra entertainment.

“I am very happy to be here,” said Ronke Adeniji , a petite 21 year old Nigerian who travelled all the way from Abidjan, Ivory Coast to be a part of this year’s show. I followed the show on Facebook and Twitter throughout the show last year and I made up my mind to be a part of this one. Once the time came, I packed my bags and came to Lagos.”

Abdul Bolu, unemployed graduate, travelled all night from Nassarawa to take part. “I actually borrowed my transport fare from my elder sister, he explains as he practices on his guitar. I could not afford it to the Abuja auditions; I had to convince my family members how much this meant to me. Luckily they believed in me and here I am today.”

Ronke and Abdul are just two from thousands of young Nigerians who travelled to Lagos from far and wide to take part in the auditions with the dream of becoming the next Nigerian Idol. Read more
