Mr Samuel Fadeyi, the new commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), in Akwa Ibom, resumed office on Monday with a call to miscreants to relocate from the state or be arrested and prosecuted.
Fadeyi told newsmen in Uyo that his major concern was to rid the oil-rich state of criminal elements,
“I have vast experience as a prosecutor with a track record of jailing criminals,” Fadeyi, a lawyer, who had served in Ogun, Lagos, Rivers States and FCT Commands, said.
He promised to improve on the existing security situation in the state to ensure adequate protection of critical infrastructure.
“I don’t intend to compromise in any way; I want to sound a note of warning to criminals that a `jailer’ is in town.
“I have prosecuted and jailed many for running foul of the law, particularly as it affects our mandate of protecting critical infrastructure,” he said.
He solicited for useful information from members of the public regarding criminals and their activities.
“The doors are open for members of the public to lodge complaints; all information given would be treated with utmost confidentiality,” Fadeyi said.

News Analysis: Australia slides into recession but full impact of COVID-19 yet to be seen
Australia is set for its first recession in 29 years, the country’s Treasurer confirmed this week following the release of first quarter data. However, economists say that the full extent of COVID-19 is most likely yet to be seen.
Official figures released on Wednesday showed Australia‘s gross domestic product (GDP) shrank by 0.3 in the first three months of the year. A contraction in the second quarter is considered a near certainty, with the bulk of COVID-19‘s impact expected to be felt.
Technically Australia will not know if it is in a recession, defined by two consecutive quarters of economic decline, until September when the figures for the current June quarter are released.
However, when asked if the country was in a recession, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said, “The answer to that is yes — and that is on the basis of the advice that I have from the Treasury Department about where the June quarter is expected to be.”
As has been typical of the COVID-19 crisis, the exact impact on Australia’s economy has been difficult to predict. The country has experienced a much faster flattening of new infections and subsequent reopening of the economy than was first thought.
“We previously expected lockdown conditions to remain in place until late Q3, so about six weeks longer than has been the case. And we also anticipated a more sustained downturn in consumer confidence linked to a more severe outbreak of coronavirus,” Chief Economist at BIS Oxford Economics Sarah Hunter told Xinhua.
“In terms of the trajectory for the economy, the high frequency data suggests that activity troughed in late April/early May and is already recovering, and we think the risk of a substantial second wave of infections is low.”
While data from the first three months of the year showed a relatively soft impact on Australia’s economy, National Australia Bank Group Chief Economist Alan Oster says that it is only a small, and likely less ugly, part of the picture.
Australia closed its borders to all non residents on March 20, followed by the introduction of social distancing restrictions, and then rolling closures of non-essential businesses such as restaurants and pubs.
With the country now in June, and in the process of reopening those businesses, it appears the bulk of COVID-19‘s impact will be seen in that second quarter period.
“We’re assuming that what’s going to happen is you are going to open up some of the clubs and pubs, so essentially hospitality. Domestic tourism will also improve. I suspect retail will improve a little bit as well as it’s reopened,” Oster said.
“And those are some of the key drivers. But it’s depending on exactly when they reopen and how things go.”
To help moderate the effects of COVID-19 and sustain employees forced out of work by the virus, the federal government introduced a historic 70-billion-Australian dollar (48.9 billion U.S. dollar) stimulus package, dubbed the “JobKeeper Program.”
Of concern moving forward, to both Hunter and Oster, is the sharp end to the current policy which they say will require more thought and planning.
“We are concerned about the size of the policy cliff edge that is currently legislated; the end of the JobKeeper program and the enhanced JobSeeker payments in October, will be a significant negative drag on household income, and there is a risk that the labour market will not have recovered enough to shake this off,” Hunter said.
Also of concern is the country’s construction industry, particularly residential construction, which was already in a downturn and is likely to experience a sustained slump.
“If you basically stop external immigration, you half the growth rate in the population. So instead of growing at 1.5, it’s 0.7. And so that will cause a lot of grief for construction,” Oster explained.
In terms of longer term recovery, Hunter predicts Australia’s GDP could return to pre-COVID-19 levels by the end of 2021, while Oster says mid-2020. And both agree that rather than a V-shape, Australia‘s return to normality looks more like a U.

AAP’s news service set to continue under new ownership
AAP’S board confirmed a group of investors and philanthropists led by former News Corp CEO Peter Tonagh was at the final stage of negotiation to purchase the newswire division from the company.
The newswire division has more than 85 years history in providing news service in Australia. However, citing financial impact caused by increasing free online content, AAP board announced in March the division would be closed with other part of the company all together that put up to 500 jobs at stake.
It’s understood that the purchase only involves news division of AAP, including text and photography, which currently provides reporting on general news, courts, politics, finance, racing and sport, plus images and video.
The rest part of asset still stays with current shareholders including Nine, News Corp Australia, The West Australian and Australian Community Media.

Memorial for George Floyd held in New York City
Thousands of New Yorkers gathered on Thursday for a memorial service to honor the life of George Floyd, whose death last week has sparked protests across the United States and beyond over police brutality and racism.
Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd, joined some 5,000 people in Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza on Thursday afternoon. Wearing a shirt with George Floyd‘s picture on it, the Brooklyn resident thanked New Yorkers for showing love to his brother.
He said he is proud of the protests but not the destruction, referring to the violence and looting that had emerged in demonstrations.
“My brother wasn’t about that,” he added.
Local officials, including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York State Attorney General Letitia James, also joined the vigil.
“George Floyd cannot have been allowed to die in vain,” said the mayor. “We will make a peaceful change. To the Floyd family, we stand with you. Black lives matter in this city. Black lives matter in America.”
Terrence Floyd then led the protesters on a march across the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan’s Foley Square under the scorching sun.
New York City, which has seen protests for the same purpose staging for over a week, is scheduled to enter the fourth night under curfew at 8 p.m. on Thursday.
See your appointment as call to service – Makinde charges newly sworn-in appointees
The swearing-in ceremonies were held on Thursday at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan.
Addressing the three female permanent secretaries, Makinde said, “This administration has shown gender sensitivity and respect for merit with your appointments.
“I congratulate you and I want to say that you earned this position. You have shown dedication and commitment in your various work environments and you have paid your dues over the years as well.
“I think we should be applauded for being gender-sensitive. We don’t discriminate. If you earn your position and have put in hard work, there is no glass ceiling in Oyo State as far as gender is concerned.
“As an administration, we try our best to motivate the workforce and ensure we deliver on our mandate to the people of Oyo State,” he said.
According to the governor, he never asked any of the new permanent secretaries of their political inclination.
“What matters to me is that you are from Oyo State and you have served diligently to earn your position.
“What is important is our service to the people of Oyo State and also to make sure that our state is better in the course of our service. This is a call to service and I wish you all well,” the governor said.
NAN reports that the three permanent secretaries are Mrs Felicia Oyediran, Mrs Adenike Olufadewa and Mrs Foluke Moradeyo.
In his remarks to the five new members of the state Civil Service Commission, Makinde said he was confident they were up to the task.
“The tasks ahead of the government, which the newly inaugurated commission must key into, include civil service reform, training and retraining of the workforce as well as exploring e-governance among others.
“You are coming on board at an auspicious time in our history. It is time for us to reform the civil service.
“You have to put in the hard work so you can have your work cut out for you. I do not entertain any shred of doubt that you have the capacity, competence and will to carry out the necessary reform in the Oyo State civil service.
“When we came in, I had several discussions with the Head of Service on how promotions and welfare of the civil servants have been handled.
“To reform the civil service, we have to put in training and retraining of the civil servants.
“So, it is one area that I believe you can make your mark and make sure that you push our agenda to bring more knowledge to the civil service.
“One other thing I want to mention is the issue of e-governance. We have to reduce the paperwork to get our governance structure to go digital.
” So, I look forward to people like yourselves to champion all of these reforms, and you can be rest assured that you will get the necessary support from the state government to pull this through,” Makinde said.
The five members of the state civil service commission are Alhaji Kamordeen Aderibigbe (Chairman), Alhaji Kolapo Adewale, Mr Olutoyin Adedeji, Chief Solomon Ogunjimi and Pastor Taiwo Oluwagbemiro.
