Fighting Poverty – Sadiya Farouq

Posted by Kolade Stephen. on Jun 21, 2021 0

 

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, has said the Federal Government has spent over $5bn since 2016 to fight poverty in the country.

The minister said this during the presentation of letters of engagement and electronic tablets to 248 monitors of the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) in Adamawa State over the weekend.

 

Farouq revealed that President Buhari has since 2016 backed his pledge to pull out 100 million Nigerians out of poverty.

 

This she said the President has done by committing $1bn through the NSIP to reduce poverty and inequality.

 

She further described as factual the data referenced in the President’s Democracy Day address, which said 7.5million people had been pulled out of poverty.

 

“I am happy to report to you that every year since 2016, when NSIP was flagged off, Mr President has approved that $1bn be invested into that sector every year (which aggregated is over $5bn).

 

“This is part of the measures the President has taken to fulfill his promise of bringing 100 million Nigerians out of poverty,” she said.

  2. Former 2nd Vice President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Monday Onyekachi Ubani, has taken the Federal Government, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Minister of Information and the Nigerian Communication Commission to court, challenging the ban of Twitter use in Nigeria.

    In the originating summons filed at the Federal High Court Lagos, Ubani is seeking for the enforcement of his fundamental rights under ‘1. Section 39(1)(2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999. Article 9(1)(2) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act CAP 10 laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990’.

    He furthers seeks: ‘A declaration that the indefinite suspension of Twitter by the 1st Respondent without an order of a competent court of jurisdiction, is unlawful and violates the fundamental right of the Applicant to freedom of expression, freedom to hold opinions and receive and impact ideas and information without interference, as guaranteed by Section 39(1)(2) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and Article 9(1) and (2) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act (CAP 10) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.

    ‘A declaration that the instruction given to the Association of Licensed Telecom Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) by the 4th Respondent to stop Nigerians (including the Applicant) from getting access to Twitter, violates the fundamental right of the Applicant to freedom of expression, freedom to hold opinions and receive and impact ideas and information without interference as guaranteed by Section 39(1)(2) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and Article 9(1) and (2) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act (CAP 10) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.

    ‘A declaration that the directive given to the security operatives and the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation (DPP) by the 3rd Respondent to arrest and immediately prosecute users of Twitter in Nigeria (including the Applicant), infringes on the fundamental right of the Applicant to freedom of expression, freedom to hold opinions and receive and impact ideas and information without interference as guaranteed by Section 39(1)(2) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and Article 9(1) and (2) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act (CAP 10) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990, and a gross violation of Section 36(12) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended), which forbids any act or omission to be referred to as a crime unless a written law says so.

    ‘Also an order of this Honourable Court setting aside the indefinite suspension, ban, sanction or other punishment whatsoever imposed on Twitter, the Applicant and other Nigerians and any social media service provider by the Respondents and their agents.’

    In addition, Ubani is asking the court for ‘an order directing the 4th Respondent to immediately revoke, withdraw and/or rescind the formal instruction given to ALTON to suspend access to Twitter in Nigeria, as same violates Sections 39(1)(2) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and Article 9(1) and (2) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act (CAP 10) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.
