The second and third week werent much different, during the inauguration of the equipment, He said that the equipment called Regional Maritime Awareness Capability Centre (RMAC) would also check the menace of oil theft The naval chief added that the centre would provide the navy with the capacity to leverage on all the tactical pictures of vessels and contacts within and around its area of responsibility He noted that the equipment would monitor illegal oil activities going on along the coastline in the Niger Delta “It will also monitor vessels and ships coming or leaving Nigerian maritime space from anywhere in the world “What we have done is that we have added impetus to our capacity to deliver on Mr President’s mandate “The domain awareness centre satisfies the requirement of one of the legs of our trinity of action which is surveillance capability” Eze-Oba said The naval boss said with the RMAC it would be easier for the navy to identify and classify vessels according to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) standard He said “we can identify vessels in accordance with IMO classification that says every vessel that is registered and is a flagged vessel must have Automatic Identification System (AIS) “Where we find that a vessel does not have AIS identification we begin to question the authenticity of such a vessel” he said Eze-Oba said the equipment had been installed at all coastlines in the country He added that the challenge before the navy now was the capacity to respond to threats posed by the “strange vessels’’ and the ability to sustain the hi-tech equipment He also identified the capacity of the judiciary to try and prosecute suspects arrested as another challenge in the quest to keep the nation’s territorial waters safe (NAN) A

but we dont call ourselves an aerospace company" House Speaker Paul Ryan said at a news conferenceThe Central Bank of Nigeria CBN has disclosed that its decision not to further devalue the naira was borne out of the need to safeguard the Nigerian economy from the shocks and negative impact the depreciation will have on the economy The apex bank in a statement signed by its Director Corporate Communications Mr Ibrahim Mu’azu maintained that the CBN does not panic and will not take desperate measures to satisfy few misguided interests in the market According to Mu’azu who was reacting to an article in the Economist Magazine he said the article seemed to ignore the fact that the exchange rate is simply a price that is essentially determined by the forces of supply and demand adding that the CBN believes that the 48 per cent decline in oil prices may not be transitory and made bold policy changes including closure of the subsidized Official Foreign Exchange (Forex) Window which resulted in a 22 per cent depreciation in the currency the Naira “Because the Nigerian economy is heavily dependent on imports and the exchange rate pass-through to inflation is high we believe that this adjustment is optimal at this time “Contrary to the article’s argument adjustments to a sharp decline in supply of US Dollars cannot all be borne by an indeterminate depreciation without considering the full impact on the Nigerian economy “The demand side also has to be considered not just in response to the pressure on the Naira but as an opportunity to change the economy’s structure resuscitate local manufacturing and expand job creation for our citizens “Take rice imports for example: why should we keep allocating scarce forex to rice importers when vast amounts of paddy rice of comparable quality produced by poor hardworking local farmers across the rice belts of Nigeria are wasted and farmers are falling deeper into poverty while we export their jobs and income to rice producing countries “Few decades ago Nigeria was one of the world’s largest producers of palm oil but today we import nearly 600000 Metric Tonnes while Indonesia and Malaysia combine to export over 90 percent of global demand” he stated Muazu however noted that under the present circumstances the CBN will do the little it can through the introduction of huge subsidies to protect the jobs and incomes of local farmers using some of the same principles western economies used to justify the protection of their farmers He further stated that Nigeria cannot attain its full potentials by importing anything and everything adding that for a long while now the quest for importation has significantly weakened the operating capacities of industries in the country Muazu added that like other oil-exporting countries Nigeria is grappling with its share of the aftermath of the oil price decline noting that despite the challenges Nigeria’s economic fundamentals remain strong According to him inflation is still within the CBN’s single-digit band the exchange rate has stabilized around N197 per US Dollar for the last five months GDP expanded by four per cent in the first quarter of 2015 and 469070 new jobs were created in the same quarter He said “But now is a good opportunity to begin a reversal Although the article hastily derides this idea as lacking in economic foundations it is the same principles upon which many other countries do not allow importation of certain products “More also if the article believes the CBN should adjust to reflect the current parallel market rate why was this suggestion not made in the week following the inauguration of President Buhari when the same rate fell sharply to under N190 per Dollar “Furthermore it appears condescending to suggest that the list of items seemed ‘to have been drawn up by someone wandering around a house and a building site’ On the contrary items were only included after thorough and exhaustive discussions at the highest policymaking body of the Bank with the strategic national interest of Nigeria” “With ingenuity and productiveness we believe that Nigerians will seize this opportunity and use it for the greater good of the country As we transition into a new administration in Nigeria we must continue to ensure policy stability at all times” he concluded A prosecution witness and Manager of Maydon Pharmaceutical company Uchenna Okeagwu has narrated how he paid billionaire kidnapper Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike also known as Evans 223000 euros as ransom for his boss Donatus Duru Okeagwu made the disclosure while testifying before the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja on Friday Led in evidence by the Director of Public Prosecution Titilayo Shitta-Bey Okeagwu said “I am a manager at Maydon pharmaceutical company and have been working with them for over seven years After we heard of the kidnap of Duru we waited to hear from the kidnappers so we will know what to do to rescue him “As the manager of the Idumota branch we worked towards raising money for the kidnappers when they asked for ransom After about two months I was called by Anselm Duru Donatus brother to come and deliver the money to the kidnappers that they have raised 223000 Euros “After counting the money we put it in a polythene bag and wrapped it very well with sellotape and I went with the money Anselm gave me his telephone that they would use it to direct me to where I would take the ransom to “I started receiving calls with the phone from the kidnappers saying I should make no mistakes that if I do I would be shot I was asked if I know the way towards mile 2 and I said yes I went with the money inside the vehicle putting the money under the passengers’ seat in the front and I moved out of the compound
