Photo of The Gate Gov Wike Put As Boundary Between Rivers And Abia State
Governor Nyesom Wike is at it again.
A photo has emerged of a gate that the Rivers State Governor has erected at the boundary between Rivers State and Abia State.
The gate is intended to prevent potential violators of the lock-down policy of the state government from gaining access into the state
Since instituting the lock-down policy, the Rivers State Government has arrested countless people who entered the state through neighbouring Abia State in breach of Rivers borders closure order to check Corona Virus.
Days ago, Wike ordered the auctioning of the cattle and the two trucks. The truck had 14 persons hidden in them. He came in from Adamawa State.
The Governor recently revealed that security personnel deployed to enforce the directive at different locations in the state have allegedly turned their duty posts to revenue-generating points, where they extort motorists and other travellers at will.
In a State Broadcast on April 27, Governor Wike announced a complete lockdown that will starts from Tuesday 28 April 2020, till further notice.
In mid-April, the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mustapha Dandaura, visited the borders between Rivers State and other states.
The unscheduled visit was to address police officers at the borders. He asked security agents deployed to the border to stop the extortion as alleged against them.
The Rivers State is home to some 5,198,716 residents. The state capital and largest city, Port Harcourt, is economically significant as the centre of Nigeria’s oil industry.
The state has many ethnic groups: Ikwerre people, Ikwerre Subgroups, Ijaw Subgroups, Ogoni people and many other ethnic groups.

The Federal Government, on Monday, decried the nationwide non-compliance with the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19’s guidelines for gradual reopening of the economy.
The Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, who stated this during the task force press briefing in Abuja, warned that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), could restore the lockdown if the guidelines were not observed and there was a surge in coronavirus cases.
The President had, on March 30, imposed a two-week lockdown on the Federal Capital Territory, Lagos and Ogun states, but at the expiration of the first lockdown on April 13, he extended it by another 14 days.
In his broadcast to the nation on April 27, Buhari said phased and gradual easing of the lockdown would begin on May 4 (yesterday). He also imposed a dusk to dawn curfew on the nation.
Besides banning interstate movements, the President imposed a total lockdown on Kano State, which had witnessed a spike in COVID-19 cases.
Guidelines on gradual reopening of the economy issued by the PTF a few days after the presidential address mandate anyone in public spaces to use non-medical face masks.
They also prohibit interstate travels, apart from for essential services. The guidelines ban gathering of more than 20 people outside of a workplace.
Commercial vehicles are only allowed to operate outside the curfew hours and should practise social distancing in the number of their passengers.
But our correspondents, who monitored activities in the FCT, Lagos and Ogun states on Monday observed that people did not observe the PTF guidelines, including social distancing.
Although banks limited the number of people that entered their premises, customers ignored social distancing as they crowded at bank gates.
Pedestrians and motorists from Ogun State crossed over to Lagos in violation of the ban on interstate movements.
‘Easing lockdown: There will be new infections’
The NCDC boss, at the PTF’s press briefing on Monday, reviewed compliance with the guidelines across the country and concluded that it was not satisfactory.
He said the President could restore the lockdown if the task force guidelines were not observed.
Ihekweazu stated, “Today (Monday), some of the measures are being eased. Initial reports are not too pleasing across the country.
Now that we have seen the sunlight again, the challenge for us as a society is, how do we organise ourselves to mitigate these risks and limit transmissions from each other?
“Though we might have a few extra infections today and tomorrow, what we don’t want is an explosion of new infections? If we do have that explosion, there will be almost no choice left for the leadership of the country but to ask all of us to go back to our homes.”
NCDC boss faults banks, fears new infections
Ihekweazu noted that banks were among business groups that were allowed to open on Monday.
He, however, lamented that many banks limited the number of their branches that opened, adding that there would be a spike in infections due to the way people mingled.
The NCDC boss said, “When we say take responsibility this time, yes, we are addressing individuals, but we really need to address corporate Nigeria. There is benefit of the doubt, but when you limit the number of branches opened, everyone goes to the one branch that is opened and that becomes counterproductive.
“Today, we might forgive a little bit because it was the first day. We will have infections because of what happened today, no doubt about that. Everybody here (on the PTF) knew today would be a problem because, for the first time, people were let out of their homes.
“We can produce all the guidelines in the world. We can preach and do press conferences, but how can we learn from the mistakes of today, tomorrow and the day after, so that, by Friday, hopefully, we have normalised some of these things?”
He stated that organisations must support the implementation of the preventive measures, help manage the risk and focus on a risk-based approach.
Why markets are opened, places of worship shut —PTF
Ihekweazu, while fielding questions from journalists, noted that the decision to open markets and close places of worship was because “food is an existential issue.”
He added, “We are not even saying we are happy with the markets across the country. But we are really still appealing to everyone in those markets to help us make it (curb in transmission) work.
“We know that many of our markets were not built for an era of COVID-19. We’re sure about that. Our markets are historically very congested places with many ports of entry, very difficult to control access; in fact, a perfect place for transmission.
“So, by no means are we saying the marketplaces are the examples of perfect locations for managing transmission. We have to allow markets to continue because people have to eat.”
Speaking on the efforts of the PTF’s in Kano State, Ihekweazu said experts deployed by the Federal Government were working to guide the ministry of health in the state.
‘Kano testing is slow’
According to him, the NCDC team and the Kano State officials are working to improve the laboratories in the state.
He said, “The speed of testing (in Kano) is a little bit slower than you would expect. But that is the price we have to pay in order to get this up and running. I’m confident that we will leave that lab better.”
The NCDC boss also said the task force supported the delivery of a new lab funded by the Aliko Dangote Foundation, delivered by a Nigerian company, 54 Gene.
Continued interstate movements of almajiris violating protocols —PTF
The PTF Chairman and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, in his remarks, said there had been “very noticeable” relocation of almajiris from one state to another.
Mustapha said, “With the ban on interstate movement, the continuation of this exercise will not be in alignment with the guidelines issued. The PTF shall engage with state governments on how to achieve their objectives.”
Don’t neglect treatment of other ailments, minister tells hospitals
The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, in his address, urged all health care facilities not to reject persons seeking medical help, especially in emergencies.
He said it was unethical not to attend to persons in distress.
“I also urge citizens to go to hospitals when not feeling well and to cooperate by giving accurate information especially with regard to travel history,” he said.
Nigeria to take part in COVID-19 medicine trials, says FG
Ehanire also noted that the country had informed the World Health Organisation that it would take part in trials of medicines to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to him, efforts are ongoing to also conduct research in Nigeria.
He said, “Other drugs can be added based on emerging evidence. We shall ensure the maintenance of ethical standards and safety of our people.”
The National Coordinator of the PTF, Dr Sani Aliyu, in his remarks, decried non-compliance with the task force protocols, saying the easing of the lockdown was in, no way, a licence to relax self-protection against the infection.
He restated the PTF guidelines, saying, “No interstate travel is allowed except for transportation of essential commodities and services. No passenger flights. Churches, mosques and schools remain closed.
“Clubs, bars, parks, sporting and gaming centres will also remain closed. It is absolutely necessary to continue to maintain those measures that will continue to protect us.
“We must wear our masks to protect ourselves and one another at all times. We must keep washing our hands. We must maintain the safe physical distance of two metres and comply with the eases lockdown measures.”
89 COVID-19 vaccines being developed —WHO
The WHO Country Representative, Fiona Braka, while fielding questions, stated that research was going on globally for a COVID-19 vaccine.
According to Braka, no fewer than 89 products are undergoing development.
He stated, “Research is going on globally to study the genetics of the virus. This helps us to develop a vaccine. Thanks to rapid sharing of genetics data from countries, we are able to advance the production of vaccines.
“We do acknowledge the contributions of countries in sharing their genetic sequencing data, including Nigeria. So, the first vaccine trial started as early as 60 days just after the genetic sequencing information of the virus was shared by China.
“We have about 89 products that are currently under vaccine development. The numbers keep getting updated because there is an accelerated process going on globally to try and find a vaccine.”
Nigerians shun social distancing, storm banks, bus stops
Meanwhile, on Monday, Nigerians, who trooped to banks, bus stops and other public places, disregarded measures introduced by the Federal Government.
Our correspondents, who monitored activities in Lagos and Ogun states, as well as the Federal Capital, observed that motorists failed to observe social distancing.
The PUNCH correspondent, who went round Sokoto, the Sokoto State capital, observed that social distancing was not adhered to by most people in the city.
Customers, who thronged most of the banks, located on Kano Road, were struggling to enter their premises
Lagos bank customers, transporters violate social distancing
In the Berger and Ikorodu areas of Lagos State, it was observed that commercial transport workers and passengers were partially complying with the use of face masks, but ignored social distancing as most buses were filled with the regular number of passengers.
Also, the influx of people into various banks and to board the Bus Rapid Transit attested to the lack of compliance with the social distancing directives.
An eyewitness in Ikorodu, Shukurat Adebayo, said she aborted the transaction she wanted to do in a bank because of the large crowd, adding that bank customers and commuters were not observing social distancing.
She said, “Currently, I am at the Ikorodu Garage, I wanted to do a transaction at the GT Bank but the branch at Ayangburen road did not open. We were directed to another branch at Agric, but I did not go. I left for Polaris Bank to do another transaction, but on getting there, it was crowded. There was nothing like social distancing because I saw a lot of people trying to gain access into the bank. They were not orderly and efforts by the bank officials to talk to people didn’t work.
“Also, the situation is the same at BRT Park. Although, I can confirm to you that the drivers conveyed only 20 passengers because I boarded a bus this morning from Lagos Island to Ikorodu. The queue was crowded as usual and commuters were not observing social distancing.”
Motorists plying Sango/Tollgate to Oshodi were seen carrying passengers, while the bus stops at Meiran, Ijaiye, U-turn and Abule Egba were overcrowded.
The majority of the passengers were seen wearing face masks but disregarded the social distancing order of the federal and state governments.
At Agege, a driver, Abbas Ramon, told The PUNCH that it was not possible for commercial vehicles to load 60 per cent of their capacity because the National Union of Road Transport Workers was still collecting normal levy from them.
Rivers commercial vehicle operators flout social distancing order
In Rivers State, commercial bus operators still loaded their vehicles with passengers without observing social distancing.
While the state government had insisted that only two passengers should be on a row, the commercial bus drivers still allowed four passengers.
Recall that the state Governor, Nyesom Wike, had threatened to ban the operation of commercial vehicles in some parts of the state should commercial drivers continue to flout the order on social distancing.
A commercial bus driver, who identified himself as Godswill, said he would not be able to make profit if he adhered to the order of having only two passengers per row.
“How can I have only two passengers where I am supposed to be carrying four passengers? If I try that, I will not make profit,” Godswill, who plies Ikwerre to Choba, said.
FCT residents besiege banks
In the FCT, hundreds of people on Monday besieged commercial banks.
The banks in Garki Area One, Adetokunbo Ademola Wuse 2, Central Business District, and other parts of the city were thronged by customers, many of whom wore no face masks.
At the Ecobank branch beside AP Plaza, Wuse 2, scores of customers were locked outside the bank and only a few were allowed to enter in line with the social distancing guidelines.
The same situation was observed at a GTB branch located beside a popular eatery where tens of customers waited impatiently outside the bank.
A customer, Stanley Wosu, said he had an urgent transaction to make in the bank hence his visit, adding that he would not have come to the bank on account of the pandemic.
14 more Lagos patients discharged
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government on Monday announced the discharge of 14 more COVID-19 patients who had recovered from the virus.
The state Ministry of Health, via its twitter handle, @LSMOH, said 261 patients had been discharged in Lagos.
It tweeted, “14 more COVID-19 Lagos patients; six females and eight males, all Nigerians were today (Monday) discharged from our isolation facilities at Yaba, Onikan, LUTH and Eti-Osa (Landmark) to reunite with the society.

Nigerian Professor Benjamin Akande Named President Of American University
The Champlain College Board of Trustees on Tuesday announced Benjamin Ola. Akande as the ninth President of Champlain College. Mr Akande will assume the role effective July 1, 2020.
Laurie Quinn, Champlain’s Provost and Senior Vice President for Academics, has been serving as Interim President since July 1, 2019.
“Dr Akande is an agent of change and a visionary leader with a global perspective. His enterprising mindset and commitment to student success will be essential as he leads Champlain College in an evolving higher education landscape. We look forward to welcoming Dr Akande to Champlain and supporting his work to advance the College’s strategic position and build on the strength of our distinctive academic offerings,” said Champlain College Board of Trustees Chair, Charles Kittredge.
Mr Akande currently serves as the Assistant Vice Chancellor for International Affairs-Africa and the Associate Director of the Global Health Centre at Washington University in St. Louis.
Named one of the city’s “Most Influential Leaders” by the St. Louis Business Journal, Mr Akande is an accomplished economist and scholar educator, as well as a recognized civic and business leader. He holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Oklahoma and served as a tenured Professor of Economics and Dean of the George Herbert Walker School of Business and Technology at Webster University in St. Louis from 2000–2015. As Dean, Dr Akande was instrumental in securing the $10 million naming gift, the largest in the institution’s history.
As the 21st President of Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri from 2015–2017, Dr Akande strengthened the college’s infrastructure and financial sustainability, transformed academic offerings and reimagined marketing and communication strategies to build the college’s brand identity.
“I am humbled and honoured by the opportunity to lead Champlain College during this period of great transformation and even greater opportunity. While the challenges we currently face as global citizens are daunting, they also sharpen our focus and urge us both individually and as a community, to lead from wherever we are,” said Dr Akande. “The commitment to educating adaptable thinkers, daring change-makers and inclusive innovators who shape professions and inspire communities is what sets Champlain College apart. I look forward to taking this journey with you and thank you for the trust you have placed in me to further Champlain College’s mission together.”

The committee was supported by Koya Leadership Partners, an executive search firm specializing in mission-driven organizations. Neale Lunderville, Trustee and Chair of the Presidential Search Committee, shared, “I want to offer my sincere gratitude and heartfelt appreciation to each of our committee members. Their extraordinary efforts over the past many months produced a strong result: Dr Akande will be an exceptional President for our exceptional College.”
The Board of Trustees and Champlain community are deeply grateful to Dr Laurie Quinn for her service as Interim President. Dr Quinn will return to her role as Provost and Senior Vice President for Academics at the conclusion of her term on June 30, 2020.
Dr Quinn shared, “It’s my honour to congratulate and warmly welcome Dr Akande to lead the Champlain community as our next President. Complex times test great leaders, and we are fortunate to be a strong community with a great new leader transitioning in at this time. I’ll be proud to serve on Dr Akande’s team and to chart Champlain’s future together.”
Born in Nigeria, Dr Akande came to the United States at the age of 17 to pursue a college degree. His parents, Samuel and Comfort Ola. Akande, held a deep respect for and belief in the value of the American higher education system that they instilled in their children.
This respect serves as an inspiration to Dr Akande, whose professional success is motivated by the power of education to change lives. Dr Akande and his wife, Bola Taiwo-Akande, a pharmacist and entrepreneur, will relocate to Burlington this summer. They have three adult daughters.

Japan’s top airlines are operating a majority of their domestic capacity even though the coronavirus outbreak has left seats on flights mostly empty, amid a lack of clear government directives on the functioning of transport infrastructure in the crisis.

Saudi Arabia is facing the current global crisis from a position of strength, given its strong financial position and reserves, with relatively low government debt, its finance minister said, referring to the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.
Mohammed al-Jadaan said in the virtual meeting of the International Monetary and Financial Committee, held on Thursday, that the Saudi government’s priorities are necessary resources for health care system, financial and economic support to those affected by coronavirus while taking into account the re-prioritization of spending under the current circumstances, Saudi state news agency SPA reported on early Friday.
5.22 Australia may keep coronavirus restrictions for a year, schools could adopt roster
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said some measures, like a rule requiring people to stand at least 1.5 metres apart, would likely remain for several months, given there was no guarantee a vaccine would be developed in that time.
“Social distancing is something we should get very used to,” Morrison told radio station 3AW. “It could be a year, but I’m not speculating about that.”
Morrison has said wider social distancing measures will stay for at least another four weeks while advocating reopening schools across the country, citing medical advice that children are a low risk of transmission.

China’s economy shrank 6.8% in January-March from a year earlier, official data showed on Friday, the first such decline since at least 1992 when quarterly gross domestic product (GDP) records began.
The historic slump in the world’s second-largest economy comes after efforts to contain the coronavirus, which first emerged in China late last year, shut down factories, transport and shopping malls.
Similar shutdowns now in effect in major economies elsewhere have devastated global trade and suggest an immediate Chinese recovery is likely to be some way off.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday called President Donald Trump’s guidelines for reopening the economy “vague and inconsistent” and said more coronavirus testing needed to be done.

3.15 Nigeria urges ‘appropriate’ debt solutions for middle-income countries
Nigerian Finance Minister Zainab Ahmed said an agreement by official bilateral creditors to suspend debt payments by the poorest countries harmed by the coronavirus pandemic was a welcome first step, but “appropriate” solutions were also needed for middle-income countries with debt challenges.

1.37 IMF sees ‘lost decade’ of no growth in Latin America due to pandemic
The International Monetary Fund on Thursday said the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, combined with other problems in recent years, meant Latin America and the Caribbean would likely see “no growth” in the decade from 2015 to 2025.
Alejandro Werner, who heads the IMF’s Western Hemisphere department, said the global lender was racing to process 16 requests for emergency assistance, about half of which were from Caribbean nations devastated by a halt in tourism.
U.S. President Donald Trump laid out guidelines on Thursday for reopening the coronavirus-ravaged U.S. economy, saying states should take a phased approach to let Americans return to work as conditions allow.
Trump told a White House news conference that governors will be empowered to tailor the approach to their own states and that if they need to remain closed, they should do so.
“We are not opening all at once, but one careful step at a time,” Trump said.
What happened on Thursday
Europe is in eye of the storm, with the number of cases nearing a million, and should move with extreme caution when considering easing lockdowns, the WHO’s regional director said. Britain extended its nationwide lockdown as stand-in leader Dominic Raab ordered Britons to stay at home for at least another three weeks. Luxury carmaker Ferrari has begun making parts to convert snorkel masks into respirators for treating patients with coronavirus and protecting medical workers. Britain’s economy looks set for a widely feared record contraction after figures showed retail spending plunged by more than a quarter and one in four firms stopped trading temporarily. Ireland has contained and effectively suppressed the first wave of the outbreak in the population at large but not in nursing homes where its spread remains a concern, the country’s chief medical officer said.
Seven Northeastern states extended a shutdown until May 15 to contain the pandemic, even as President Donald Trump prepared to unveil recommendations to begin easing the lockdown in the least-affected U.S. states. Canada’s border restrictions with the U.S. will remain in place “for a significant time” as the two nations fight the outbreak, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said. U.S. defense secretary said he believed China’s leaders have been misleading and opaque about the outbreak and does not trust that they are being truthful even now. Hundreds of thousands of children could die this year due to the global economic downturn sparked by the pandemic and tens of millions more could fall into extreme poverty, the United Nations warned. Mexico’s president said the country was looking to return to normal beginning June 1, with schools and businesses reopening provided people comply with anti-coronavirus health measures until then. ASIA AND THE PACIFIC
China reported fewer imported cases on Thursday, but said locally transmitted infections rose, with the capital Beijing seeing new local cases for the first time in more than three weeks. Japan’s prime minister expanded a state of emergency to include the entire country and said the government was considering cash payouts for all. India charged a Muslim leader with culpable homicide not amounting to murder for holding a gathering last month that authorities say led to a big jump in infections. Indonesia expects the number of cases to peak between May and June with around 95,000 infections, a government adviser said. Australia will retain curbs on public movement for at least four more weeks, its prime minister said, dashing speculation the sustained low growth in new cases could spur a quicker return to normal. Singapore’s health ministry confirmed 728 new coronavirus infections on Thursday, a new daily record, taking the total in the city-state to 4,427. MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA
Coronavirus outbreaks across the Middle East threaten to shatter the lives of millions of already destitute people in conflict zones, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said. Coronavirus cases in Africa could shoot up from thousands now to 10 million within three to six months according to very provisional modelling, a regional World Health Organization (WHO) official said. Six Gulf Arab states approved Kuwait’s proposal for a common network for food supply safety. Israel’s military said it has begun converting common home-use respirators into ventilators capable of providing potentially life-saving breathing support for COVID-19 patients. ECONOMIC FALLOUT
World stock markets seesawed while bond yields retreated as dire U.S. jobless data underscored a deepening downturn and tamped down investor hopes a listless economy would soon be back on its feet. Hedge fund Elliott Management said global stocks could ultimately lose half of their value from February’s high, according to a letter sent to clients. The United States opposes creation of liquidity through issuance of the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights as part of the response to the pandemic, U.S. treasury secretary said. ConocoPhillips said it would slash spending and cut U.S. oil output by about 30% of this year’s target, the largest cut so far by a major shale producer to deal with an unprecedented drop in oil demand. Louis Vuitton owner LVMH posted a 17% drop in comparable sales in the first quarter due to the pandemic, as government-imposed lockdowns forced it to close stores and production sites in key markets.
The Man That Cured Coronavirus With Traditional Method
As the world scrambles to find an effective vaccine to cure the coronavirus, a video has gone viral claiming to have a fullproof method for people to effectively safeguard themselves against contracting COVID-19 it in the first place.
People have been forced to abruptly react to the public health pandemic that has claimed more than 90,000 lives worldwide.
But the key to staving off the respiratory illness lies in being proactive, according to the video touting an “African method” of self-treatment.
The video, which appears to have been posted to social media this past weekend and is entitled, “Use African Method,” begins in a family’s home kitchen and shows a man lifting a mound of heavy blankets off of his apparent son, releasing plumes of steam from underneath.
When the young man got up from the stool he was sitting on, he was dripping with perspiration as the camera also revealed a large cooking pot from which the steam was rising.
“This is African style,” the older man’s voice can be heard saying before he prompts the younger man to explain what’s happening.
We have come across a video on social media where a man who claims to have used African methods to cure his sin of Coronavirus explains how he did it.
According to the man, he made a mixture of some herbal drugs in a bucket and made his son cover himself with a heavy blanket to allow the heat to enter the boy.
“It is time to explore the role of alternative medicine and traditional remedies in the fight against the Coronavirus.
Some traditional medicines are known to boost the immune system and can help both in the prevention of people succumbing to the disease and also play a role a palliative function in the management of persons suffering from COVID-19,” – he said.
He then allowed his son to use the steam therapy method to feel the heat in his body
His son, while explaining how he feels after sweating from the steam therapy, said he feels stronger.
According to him, the COVID-19 made him weak but after days of using the traditional method to kill the virus in his system, he is now strong and healthy.
Could this be real? Only our health workers can explain this to us…
FIFA Announces Over Football Return And Lays Out Priority
FIFA vice-president Victor Montagliani has admitted that the return of football is likely to be behind-closed-doors, with the domestic game taking priority over international fixtures.
It was announced last month that the Premier League had been suspended
It was announced last month that the Premier League would be suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic which has gripped the world, with many countries on lockdown and all mass gatherings cancelled.
However there is an understanding that, even when the sport does return, it might not be in a normal capacity.
Montagliani, who is CONCACAF’s president and has been heading a FIFA working group formulating plans to deal with the implications on the current crisis, believes matches in stadiums could still be a while away.
He told AP: “If we get the green light to play a football match” I highly doubt that first football match will be with fans. I just can’t see that. I think that would be taken a massive risk.
“I’m pretty sure it’ll be a phased in approach, just like the rest of society is going to be is then in terms of us trying to get back to normal here.”
EURO 2020 has already been pushed back until 2021, but no update has yet been given on September, October and November’s international fixtures.
However, Montagliani cast doubt over those games and claimed that domestic football should be the priority.
I personally think that might be a bit of a challenge, not so much because of just the health issues around the world and the various degrees of preparedness, but also committing to international travel as soon as we come back
“I think that domestic football is a priority. September [international break] is still in the books, but I would garner to say that I’m not sure it’s there on solid ground the way things are trending right now.”
