Hello and Welcome to Signature TV News Highlight for this Wednesday


ASUU: Education Cannot Be Funded by Government Alone – Ngige

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, says education cannot be funded by the government alone.

Ngige said this on Tuesday while reacting to the looming industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Meanwhile, Academic Staff Union of Universities President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, had on Monday issued a three-week ultimatum to the Federal Government to address all issues in the December 2020 Agreement.

He warned that if the government fails to implement the Memorandum of Action signed with the Union prior to the suspension of the last industrial action, the union would be compelled to embark on another nationwide strike. #


#EndSARS Report: CDS Irabor Faults Procedure of Release, Insists Armed Forces Are Professional

The Chief of Defense Staff, General Lucky Irabor, has faulted the procedure adopted in the release of a document said to be the report of the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry on police brutality.

The leaked report had indicted officers of the Nigerian Army for killing “unarmed helpless and defenceless protesters, without provocation or justification, while they were waving the Nigerian Flag and singing the National Anthem” at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020.

The CDS however explained that he could not, at the moment, comment on the content of the document because he has not seen the official report.

General Irabor, who spoke after a courtesy visit to the Edo State Governor in Benin-City, maintained that the Nigerian armed forces are committed to their constitutional mandate and do not engage in ignoble acts. #


#EndSARS: Falana Urges Lagos Govt To Implement Recommendations of Judicial Panel

Human rights activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana, has urged the Lagos State Government to implement the recommendations of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry, set up to investigate cases of police brutality and other SARS-related crimes.

Falana said this in a statement issued on Tuesday, a day after a leaked report from the panel, which revealed that the Nigerian Army shot and killed unarmed protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020.

He said members of the Okuwobi Judicial Commission of Inquiry deserve commendation for the thorough investigation of police brutality in Lagos State, adding that a copy of the report should be sent to the President. #


Vice President Urges Nigerian Businesses to Step-Up Product Quality for Africa Trade

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has advised Nigerian business owners to step up the quality of their products in order to improve trading across the continent and the market acceptability of made-in-Nigeria goods.

Osinbajo gave this advice on Tuesday at the opening session of the virtual “Open-Day with Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, organized by the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON),

He noted that there were many programmes which Buhari’s Administration has specially curated to support Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, which he said include the cross-cutting, systemic business climate reforms of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC).

He further explained that improving product quality was integral to market entry and market share, adding that failure to adhere to international standards for product quality will continue to limit the market acceptability of our products and poses the risk of rejection and non-acceptance of ‘Made in Nigeria’ products at home and abroad. #
