Published

Governor Aminu Tambuwal

Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto
State has pledged his administration’s commitment to promoting
agricultural and economic ventures in the state via public-private
partnerships. Tambuwal, who gave the
assurance at a parley with newsmen in Sokoto on Wednesday, said that the
ventures were geared toward enhancing revenue generation and employment
opportunities in the state.

He listed such ventures as the Anchor Borrowers Scheme and other agricultural projects of the Central Bank of Nigeria, in addition to the schemes of commercial banks which were targeted at boosting agricultural production in the state.
He
said that other ventures were those relating to solid minerals
exploitation, tomato farming and processing as well as textiles and
agro-allied industries.
Tambuwal said that a mechanised cattle breeding and dairy farm was established by his administration through such initiatives.
In
the area of education, the governor said that students’ enrolment in
schools had increased appreciably, while efforts were underway to
upgrade the infrastructural facilities of the schools.
Tambuwal
said that a committee set up by the government had estimated that N47
billion was required to cater for about 2,011 schools.
He
acknowledged the dearth of teachers in the state and the low quality of
many teachers, adding, however, that the government would not sack any
teachers but it would rather retrain them.
He
stressed that his administration was committed to the judicious
management of resources, adding that for instance, funds accruing from
the Paris Club loan refunds were used to settle workers’ salary,
pensions and other entitlement.

On sports, Tambuwal said that the Sokoto United Football Club
would be repositioned for better performances with enhanced welfare
packages, adding that a new stadium would be constructed since the
current one was situated in the residential area.
He
said that the state’s laws would be strengthened to address criminal
acts like cattle rustling, kidnapping and other social vices.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
