BBC honours Nigerian police officer who has "never collected bribe"

BBC honours Nigerian police officer who has "never collected bribe"

A Nigerian police officer has been honoured by BBC for standing out and refusing to collect bribe all through his years of service.

Julius Adewale Adedeji, a superintendent of police currently serving in the Ekiti state police command, is being celebrated by BBC for being Nigeria’s "most dedicated police officer". He is said to have never taken a bribe when it's offered because it is “needless” for him.

In an interview, he told BBC that he was surprised receiving the award because he did not know he was being watched.

BBC honours Nigerian police officer who has "never collected bribe"

He said: “I thank God that it’s recognised and I feel like putting my best more and more.

“A copy of the letter [from the BBC] was delivered to my office for my information, when I read through it, I was wondering could it be true? I read through the letter and I saw that it said, they wanted an institution where they can name and shame those that are not doing well and encourage the people that are doing well within the Nigerian police force, I felt so great.”

Adedeji said he has been offered bribe but refused it each time.

"Even today a person offered to give me some money and I said ‘no,no,no,no why would you do that, I’m just doing my work’," Adedeji said.

He, however, admitted he has been tempted to take bribes.

“There’s no way one would not once in a while be tempted. But I just want to do what is right," he explained.

He continued: "I know in my little space where I work, I’ve seen people who are going the wrong way. We’ve talked to them and told them you don’t have to do this and God will find a way to bless you when you’re doing what is right."

After BBC shared the news on Twitter, social media users reacted to it. Some praised Adedeji for being a man of integrity while some said it is impossible that a Nigerian police officer has never collected bribe.

Codeine Abuse: Senate President, Bukola Saraki says, 'It's everybody’s problem'

Codeine Abuse: Senate President, Bukola Saraki says,



Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu, Saraki stated that documentaries like ‘Sweet Sweet Codeine’ are real-life attestations on the need for Nigeria to take its drug abuse problem more seriously.

“The widespread nature of this substance abuse problem in Nigeria is why the Senate convened the stakeholder Roundtable in Kano in December. Even though I have been working on this issue for a few months now, watching the BBC documentary was another eye-opener. Nigerians can now see that if care is not taken, we could be sitting on a catastrophe. We cannot all just fold our arms and expect this issue to fix itself. This is everybody’s problem" the President of the Senate said.

He continues to say, 'as things stand, following the Roundtable on Drug Abuse that held in Kano in December 2017, we have already developed a draft Legislative framework for the control of narcotics and psychotropic substances and the provision of mental health and substance abuse services in Nigeria. With the Drug Control Bill that we are set to introduce, the mandate of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control (NAFDAC) and other relevant law enforcement and other regulatory bodies will be strengthened to eradicate the illicit production, and trafficking of controlled substances".  
“While the Mental Health Bill will ensure the availability of mental health and substance abuse services in every state, as well as guarantee the enforcement of minimum standards of care for people with mental health disorders. This is because, we cannot continue like this. We cannot continue to have one psychiatrist for every 1.6million Nigerians and expect this substance abuse problem to go away. This legislative framework that we are preparing recognizes the low number of mental health practitioners in the country, and works to rectify that problem by ensuring that quality mental health and substance abuse services are available for this underserved segment of the population.”

Nigerian youths need to maximise opportunities in Agriculture - President Buhari

Nigerian youths need to maximise opportunities in Agriculture - President Buhari

President Buhari has reiterated his call on youths in Nigeria to seize opportunities in agriculture, a sector of the economy he said is already proving to be the bedrock of the nation’s new economy.

Speaking on Monday at Blair House, Washington DC after his White House engagements with President Donald Trump, the President, at a meeting the Chief Executive Officers of six American agricultural companies and their Nigerian counterparts including Aliko Dangote and John Coumantaros, again lamented the challenges of the country’s youth bulge, with “sixty per cent of the population below 30 years.”

He said the country must help the young people to plan their future and urged them to explore opportunities easily accessible in agriculture because, as he said, “agriculture is the future.” While stressing that planning in Nigeria must take into consideration the factors of climate and a bulging youth population, President Buhari also promised the support of his administration in the promotion of skill development, innovation and entrepreneurship among the young population.

According to him, “We realized, rather belatedly that we ought to have been investing in agriculture. We are now aiming at food security because of our large population. Our youths, the ones who have gone to school and even those that have not, should go to the farm, to earn respect for themselves. Agriculture is providing jobs for millions of our citizens and we are doing well towards the attainment of food security and jobs. The media may not appreciate the work we are doing but we will shock them by the success we are recording.”

President Buhari welcomed the several investment proposals being put in place by the Americans and their Nigerian counterparts. Among those brought up for discussions were the three million tons fertilizer by Dangote, the largest in Africa coming on stream in July, to be followed by another one to produce 1.4 million tons of the commodity; a large-scale modern seed production company, and weed and pest management and chemicals products companies by the Americans.

Similarly, the Burger King food chain with plans to integrate local farmers in livestock production; the Heinz tomatoes production, with backward integration of Nigerian tomato farmers; and another company coming to set up a local branch to facilitate merchandising of commodities, in effect establishing a link between the Nigerian producers and the global market.

A tractor manufacturing company, John Deer, also unfolded a plan for an assembly plant to produce 10,000 tractors in four years in Nigeria. They will all come with jobs for Nigerians. In a second business meeting same day, President Buhari brought together Nigerian businessmen and their American counterparts from the U.S Chamber of Commerce and the Corporate Council on Africa, (CCA.)

The U.S Chamber, on behalf of its three million member-companies which included General Electric, Chevron, Proctor and Gamble and Boeing aircraft manufacturers, expressed happiness with improved security in the Niger Delta, reforms in the economy leading to ease in doing business, and the war the administration is waging against corruption.

Several of the oncoming plans were disclosed to the President who demanded concrete plans and an aggressive timetable for their actualization. He envisaged that the investment schemes will lead to a lot of new opportunities for the Nigerian youth.

Governor Nyesom Wike blames FG for security challenges

Governor Nyesom Wike blames FG for security challenges



Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has blamed Nigeria’s security challenge on political interference by the Federal Government. Wike said this on Monday when he received participants of Senior Executive Study Group Three from the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, Kuru at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

“What we have seen in most cases is that security lapses are a result of political interference,” he said. He claimed that insecurity is fallout of the political interference of the Federal Government in the operation of security agencies.  

The governor added that Rivers State is working hard to handle security challenges adding that Rivers State residents are peace makers. Commenting on the Neighbourhood Safety Corps, Governor Wike said that the agency was established to complement the work of Federal Security Agencies.  

He added that the organisation was fashioned in line with an existing model in Lagos State under the leadership of respected retired military, police and paramilitary senior officers.

Breaking: FG Bans production of Cough Syrups containing codeine in Nigeria

Following the inreasing rate of its gross abuse, the Federal Ministry of Health has directed the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to ban with immediate effect further issuance of permits for the importation of codeine as active pharmaceutical ingredient for cough preparations.

The Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole made this known in Abuja today May 1st. According to Adewole, the directive became necessary due to the gross abuse codeine usage has been subjected to in the country, especially in Northern Nigeria.

He also directed the Pharmaceutical Council of Nigeria, (PCN) and NAFDAC to supervise the recall for labelling and audit trailing of all codeine containing cough syrups in the country, while he has also banned sales of Codeine containing cough syrup without prescription across the country.

 Nigerian graduate says schooling in the UK made him realise how different Nigerian lecturers are

Victor Asemota says schooling in UK opened him up to a different perspective on lecturers. He is of the opinion that UK lecturers are more concerned with imparting knowledge and are eager to answer the questions of their students. On the other hand, students who dare question Nigerian lecturers are doomed.
