Much Ado About Ayade’s Superhighway Project

Venatius Ikem delivered a public lecture on his "Thoughts on Nigeria's Development Journey and the Fallacies of Hopelessness".

Who Set Fire On SEMA Office In Calabar?

A late evening fire has razed the Cross River State Emergency Management Agency, SEMA, stores in Calabar. Sources said the fire outbreak may not be ordinary.

The fire which started at about 7 pm razed several bags of rice, gallons of vegetable, cartons of biscuits and noodles kept in the warehouse to await distribution. Materials said to cost millions of naira were lost to the inferno.

A staff of the agency said in an interview that the fire was amystrious, as there has been no electricity supply to the warehouse in the past five years nor is there any form of flame close by that could ignite the fire outbreak.

He said “we are all surprised how fire got into the place because we have not had electricity in the warehouse in the past five years.”

He said the items burnt were supplied by NIMASA last Tuesday and that plans had been made to distribute them when the inferno occurred. The staff also said he suspected arson by hoodlums who may have invaded the place on getting wind of the supply of items to the agency and added that the security situation in the premises is very porous.

“Last night an air conditioner was removed by hoodlums and I suspect they came from the adjoining bushes close to the Bogobiri area. In the past we usually engaged the services of policemen but for sometimes now we have not had imprest so could not pay the torchlight and transport allowance of policemen so they stopped coming”.

No More Tea Party For Quarry Operators In C'River

It will no longer be business as usual for owners and operators of quarries in Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River State. This follows the enactment of a law meant to regulate their activities.

The bill which was sponsored by Mr Mathew Olory, who represents Akamkpa 1 constituency in the state house of assembly is to guide the quarry operators in their operations. Operators who flout the laws will be made to face varying degrees of penalties.
