Security Challenges, Boko Haram Defeat, Lagos Land Use Charge and the Early Rush Show

0

The current security challenges in the country especially the kidnap of Dapchi girls about 110 of them and the death of over 30 persons in Benue State lately has got folks talking! Citizens are worried that the government should stop saying that Boko Haram is defeated and defeat them once and for all. This was x-rayed at the morning radio program anchored by Mofe Oyatogun’s “Early Rush Show” on 101.5 MHz Star FM Lagos.

In the words of Chinedu Obioha , one of the panellist, he questioned the rationale of sitting down and also encouraged the military to stand up”

On the issue of rice and the position of Audu Ogbeh and Thailand ambassador to Nigeria, the Thailand ambassador has said that the Nigerian minister quoted him out of context.

The issue of agriculture would be low in Nigeria, the food belts and agricultural belts in Nigeria has been devasted. Places like Kogi, Adamawa, Yobe, Bornu, Taraba and Benue are known to be in one security challenge or the other. With the herdsmen running amok in the middle belt and Islamist making Adamawa a no-go area, this situation has made farmers not to go to their farms and this situation would affect food production.


The government wants to make Lagos the 3rd or 4th most robust economy in Africa but that doesn’t mean that feudalistic taxing system and this has been the case on the recent increase of land use charge that Ambode, the governor of Lagos is pushing… But, another school of thought has opined that Lagos residents don’t pay the required tax. It is said that Nigerians don’t pay the required tax because they do provide basic amenities like water (borehole) electricity ( generator) and even security and these have made most of Nigerians give up on paying tax and the government should be humane in this land use charge. It would also give the landlords an avenue to increase rents astronomically.

But Ambode has said that the Land Use Charge is open to dialogue…meaning that the issue of rates is open for discussion, said Akinleye.
