The Minister of Finance and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, has disclosed that Nigeria spends N18.69 billion daily on petroleum subsidies.

She made the announcement on Thursday when she appeared before the ad hoc committee of the House of Representatives investigating oil subsidies.

The minister claimed that Nigeria consumes 64 million liters per day. and that the number may have been affected by smuggling.

Ahmed said the manager is also concerned about the increase in daily consumption.

She noted that some products are being smuggled out of the country, adding that daily consumption has dropped significantly during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Stating that the decision to withdraw the subsidy cannot be taken by the President alone, she insisted that there must be a multi-stakeholder approach, including all political parties, who must sit down to take the decision.

The National Association of Nigerian Students on Thursday said it will begin consultations with a view to suing the Federal Government and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, over the ongoing strike by the University Academic Staff, The PUNCH reports.

The association disclosed this in a statement made available to our correspondent in Abuja. At a press conference, the minister called on students affected by the strike to sue ASUU.

But NANS President, Sunday Ashefon, said: “Our attention was drawn to a statement attributed to the Minister of Education, Malamu Adamu Adamu, where he suggested that Nigerian students affected by the ASUU strike should sue ASUU for liabilities incurred as a result of the strike. .

Perhaps the only thing that Malam Adamu Adamu has done right since he became a minister is the fact that Nigerian students needed to compensate for their wasted time, opportunities and resources. However, the minister is half clever when he suggests that ASUU should be held responsible for the liabilities. ASUU is neither the owner of our tertiary institutions nor the beneficiary of the exorbitant fees we pay across our tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It is an abuse of intellect to suggest that students sue employees for protesting poor working conditions rather than the employer who owns our schools and receives the exorbitant tuition fees we pay.

Since 2016, a year after President Muhammadu Buhari took office, 35 aid workers have been killed, 22 injured and 28 kidnapped, the official said.

At least six of those abducted were kidnapped in 2022, Humanitarian Affairs Minister Sadiya Farouq said in Maiduguri in the presence of President Buhari.

Details of what was said at the World Humanitarian Day 2022 event were contained in a statement by Mr. Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina.

According to Mr Adesina, Ms Farouq quoted a number from the “Aid Worker Security Database”.

At the event, Mr. Buhari directed the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and its agencies to prepare concrete programs to address the urgent threat posed by explosive remnants of war in the North Eastern region.

From our experience in an unfortunate civil war, I know the threat that unexploded ordnance can pose to returnees even after the end of a conflict, as we saw in the latest IED incident in Bama last week.

“I am calling on the Department and its agencies as well as state governments and the special committee I have set up under the chairmanship of the Vice President to come up with concrete programs and projects that respond to these emerging challenges of explosive ordnance as well as children orphaned by the insurgency,” the President said.
