DO FRSC ACTUALLY KEEP NIGERIAN ROADS SAFE?

Image
[OPINION] by Imo-owo Mbede Can we sincerely say that the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has been efficient at making Nigerian roads safer? I doubt. I would rather say that the FRSC is more efficient at extorting money from road users, as against its primary obligation of ensuring that our roads are safe for users. A Federal Road Safety official pulls you over and demands to see your drivers' license, which I presume should certify your eligibility and authorization to drive. Unfortunately, the drivers' license does not prove whether or not one can drive – because till date I DO NOT REMEMBER EVER SEEING THE FRSC CONDUCTING DRIVING TESTS BEFORE ISSUING A DRIVERS' LICENSE. (They now do so through accredited driving schools, but that’s a very recent development – and as Nigerians, we know what that means….)

LANDS IN UYO NOW SELLING AT N575K (SEE SLIDES) - Payable Through 12 Months

Image
[REAL ESTATE] Weeks back, we posted messages on low cost lands selling in Uyo at N500k, and payable through 15 months. Following the advertorials, the lands sold out. But, good news, there is a second phase and it's selling now. The location may be disclosed when an interested buyer contacts us via calls 08027675065 (official hours only) or by SMS via the same contact. But it is NOT in the city centre, yet still in Uyo metropolis, between Aka Road and Abak road. For this phase, each 500 square meter goes originally for N700,000. However, there is provision for prospects buying via our referral to get it at N550,000, following payment of N25,000 consultancy fee and registration (both non refundable), and an initial deposit of N100,000; any interested individual can pay up through 12 months. Seize on this opportunity and do not foot-drag till this also sells out. Thank you Jabborro PR

[MUSIC] Emem Baseda Debut Release OFFICIAL RELEASE - DOWNLOAD HERE FREE You  want to connect with your Creator, you want to experience the heavenly. All human beings do. But if you don't, then you do not want to be led in worship by Emem Baseda. God reigns all the way from where no flesh can understand or reach, from glory no mind can imagine. Yet, His presence is accessible. He is billions of light years far off, but nearer than our skins. He is Holy and unapproachable by human flesh, yet He comes near enough to hear us. Obviously He preserves His presence in high value. Consequently, it takes certain knowledge, direction, passionate hunger and the skill to bring that presence out among men.

[ENERGY] Dead Bus Equipment, Ibom Power Company More than once in the 13 months of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, electricity generation has fallen in Nigeria from 5000MW to 0.0MW. Seeing the political issues that lead to these crises are yet to be resolved, there's every likelihood of a recurrence. But, Akwa Ibom State will not be affected next it happens. Although all states in the federation statutorily get served from the national grid, The ima ge shows the dead bus system that isolates Akwa Ibom State from the nation when the national grid fails. In such times, the State becomes an island of electricity.   It was approved for the state owned power generating corporation, Ibom Power Company, IPC, by the Udom Emmanuel led Government, along with other interventions in the energy distribution sector.
