Speaking on Friday at the National Security and Peace Symposium organized by Lead Generation Initiative (LGI) to mark the 45th birthday of the federal legislator, Dr. Fayemi, who was also the Chairman of the occasion, commended Hon. Peller and LGI for choosing to celebrate his birthday with such a purposeful security symposium as part of his own contribution to addresing the menace of insecurity in the country.

Similarly, Dr. Fayemi added that the security and other challenges that the country battles with can be overcome if the causes of the problems are reasonably addressed and dealt with. He listed some of the causes to include poverty, inequality and unemployment.

He said,

“We are all here because we believe in a cause we need to commit ourselves. At the moment, we know our country is going through a lot of challenges. But these challenges are not insurmountable. These are challenges we can overcome.

“Countries that are in more security situation than Nigeria have overcome it. We can achieve this if we are single-minded, if there is sincerity of purpose, if we are committed about transforming Nigeria for the better, and understanding our challenges for what they are.

“If we are honest, purpose driven, dedicated and determined, we will put behind all the triggers of violence in the land; be it insurgency, banditry, kidnapping, armed robbery and so on, as long as we are tough on the causes of the crime. We all know the causes of the crimes in our country. Inequality, poverty and unemployment are major aspects of it.”

In his own congratulatory message to the celebrant, Lagos State governor, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu in a congratulatory birthday letter he personally signed, described Hon. Peller as an exemplary politician, a patriotic Nigerian, a selfless member of the House of Representatives and a worthy ambassador of Oyo State.

“On behalf of the Government and people of Lagos State, I congratulate you on your 45th birthday.

“The anniversary of your birthday provides an opportunity to celebrate you for being an exemplary politician, a patriotic Nigerian, a selfless member of the House of Representatives and a worthy ambassador of Oyo State.

“Despite the challenges associated with representing diverse people, you have demonstrated uncommon love for your constituents, and the uncanny ability to prioritize their interests.

“I am proud of the giant strides you have made in politics and your unparalleled contributions to the development of Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency.

“The Peace and Security Symposium being organized to mark your birthday embodies your love for the continued unity, peace and wellbeing of Nigeria. As you celebrate your 45th birthday, I pray for better strength and wisdom to keep serving your people.

“May your life remain impactful, productive and inspirational.”

JUST IN: Nationwide Protest To Remove President Buhari Holds On Democracy Day

JUST IN: Nationwide Protest To Remove President Buhari Holds On Democracy Day—-Which “democracy day” are they talking about – the real one (29 May) or fake one (12 June)? Whichever, anyone contemplating such a protest is naive and misguided, as naive and misguided as those expecting President
Buhari to restructure Nigeria!

It is an unfortunate characteristic of certain Nigerians to indulge in unreasonable expectations. Even when the solution to their problem is obvious to all reasonable minds, the unreasonable ones disturb our peace with their unreasonableness.

Look, Nigerians, take measures (including acquiring weapons of self-defence and fervent prayer) to avert a religious and inter-tribal war that is loading for 2022.

With that war averted and Nigeria getting another chance to exist as one country, massively support a South-Easterner to succeed President Buhari – on APC platform, of course.

With a South-Easterner as President of Nigeria from 29th May 2023, restructuring will happen naturally. Restructuring is South-Eastern as South-Eastern is restructuring.

JUST IN: Nationwide Protest To Remove President Buhari Holds On Democracy Day

What we see is that those calling for exit of President Buhari from office before 29th May 2023 and those unreasonably asking him to restructure Nigeria are mischievous individuals who want to truncate the very high prospect of a South-Easterner succeeding him on APC platform, thereby ending Nigeria violently.

They know that realistic promise of President of Nigeria of South-East extraction on APC platform from 29th May 2023 is now the only guarantee of Nigeria’s unity, peace, security, prosperity and true greatness – for the first time in history.

We shall not let them plunge Nigeria into avoidable destructive crisis from which the country will not survive. We must help them to stop that silly pressure on President Buhari to restructure Nigeria or to vacate Aso Rock Presidential Villa prematurely.

S&P: FBNH And FirstBank Boards’ Changes Ensured Stability

S&P: FBNH And FirstBank Boards’ Changes Ensured Stability—-S&P Global Ratings said changes to the boards of First Bank of Nigeria Limited and FBN Holdings (FBNH) Plc, recently directed by Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), addressed the banking group’s corporate governance challenges and ensures the Nigerian banking sector’s financial stability.

In a statement, it stated that its ratings on FBN and other Nigerian banks remain constrained by shortcomings in corporate governance and transparency, among other factors.

The CBN recently replaced the entire boards of FBN and FBNH, and reinstated the former executive directors and CEO, Dr. Adesola Adeduntan.

The CBN had also requested FBN unwind certain exposures and divest from its participation in a non-permissible company, also pointing to potential corporate governance lapses at the bank.

“However, Dr. Adeduntan’s reinstatement and the re-appointment of the other executive directors underscores the CBN’s confidence in the existing management team to continue the turnaround of the third-largest banking group in Nigeria, which has total assets of Nigerian N7.7 trillion.

S&P: FBNH And FirstBank Boards’ Changes Ensured Stability

“We are of the view that the CBN’s historical approach has been more reactive than proactive, as illustrated by the Skye Bank episode. That said, recent actions, while disruptive in the near-term, may signal a more direct and possibly decisive supervisory approach to alleged failings in the management and governance of regulated institutions,” it stated.

It, noted that FBN’s overall credit profile has gradually stabilised since 2016, with a capital adequacy ratio of 17 percent in 2020, as against a 15 percent minimum requirement.

Similarly, the bank’s asset quality indicators improved significantly, with Non-Performing Loans (NPLs) reducing to 7.7 percent in 2020, from 20-25 percent since 2016.
