Concerned that the dilapidated state of the Onitsha-Owerri Road has completely cut off the kilometer 8 + 100 in the Oba axis, thereby halting human and vehicular movement in the area;

Also concerned that since the failure of the portion at the Oba axis, there have been several accidents involving unsuspecting commuters whose vehicles have fallen into the deep gully in the road, resulting in the loss of lives and property;

Aware that the Anambra State Government acted on emergency basis to stop the progression of the erosion, but the urgent intervention of the Federal Government is needed to prevent more deaths and save the entire road from total collapse;

Notes that the Federal Character Commission Act was enacted in 1995 and enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) with the primary responsibility to promote, monitor and enforce compliance with the principles of the proportional sharing of all bureaucratic, economic, media and political posts at all levels of government;

Recalls that no other Constitution in Nigeria history has entrenched such regulatory body and vested same with powers to facilitate national integration through equitable, transparent and unbiased sharing of national wealth and public official positions;

Laments that twenty-eight years after this purposeful enactment was aimed at national cohesion and equal opportunities, and twenty-four years after its constitutional entrenchment, the perception is that there exists brazen domination of the bureaucratic, economic, media and political posts at all levels by a section of the country at the expense of the others;

Regrets that the Federal Character Commission has virtually abdicated its constitutional and statutory responsibilities and degenerated into personality clash of interest amongst its commissioners as was the case about a year ago;

Recognise that the constitutional injunction is that the Federal Republic of Nigeria shall be a state based on the principles of democracy and social justice, which also propagates national integration and abjure discrimination on the grounds of place of origin, sex, religion, status, ethnic or linguistic association or ties;

Observes that the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) empowered the National Assembly with the categorical powers under section 88(2) (6) to expose corruption, inefficiency or waste in the execution or administration of laws within its legislative competence and in the disbursement or administration of funds appropriated by it as our core oversight and supervisory duty;

Also notes that by Order Seventeen, Rule 1 (a) – b) of the Standing Orders of the House, all Ministries, statutory Agencies, Bodies or corporations shall forward to the speaker all reports required by statute within three months of the close of the reporting period, and any violation of the same attracts sanctions as provided in the Legislative houses (Power and Privileges) Act, 2017;

Concludes that it is within the Legislative competence of the National Assembly especially its relevant Committee when constituted, to compel the Federal Character Commission to discharge its constitutional and statutory responsibilities;

  1. Need to Revive Gele–Gele Seaport, Edo State.

Hon. Esosa Iyawe:

​The House:

Notes that the maritime industry is the second largest contributor of revenue to Nigeria’s economy and has been touted as capable of surpassing the oil sector in terms of revenue generation;

Also notes that Gele-Gele Seaport in Edo State has an important place in history as it was where the first European travellers to visit Benin landed and subsequent diplomatic and trade relations between the Portuguese and the great Benin Kingdom were carried out via the same seaport;

Concerned that despite its relevance as an international trade route, the Gele-Gele seaport was abandoned after Nigeria’s independence, while attention was diverted to Lagos Ports which are currently overwhelmed and other ports which have become inoperative;

Aware that the maritime industry is one of the most lucrative industries in the world as it sets the pace of growth experienced in other industries, thus Nigeria’s economic growth through the industry would largely depend on the development and expansion of its seaports to accommodate the demands on the sector;

Also aware that maritime transportation need quick response, and the labour market in the industry requires both skilled and unskilled workers for the sector to function properly, thus revitalization of the Gele-Gele seaport will create huge employment opportunities, not only for the people in the South-South zone but also for the teeming number of unemployed youths in Nigeria at large;

Cognizant that if Gele-Gele seaport is revived and developed to meet international standards, it will play a significant role in boosting Nigeria’s ailing economy as Edo State is geographically connected to various parts of the country, which makes it an economic hub for international trade and investments;

Resolves to:

(i) Urge the Federal Government to, in line with its diversification agenda, leverage the huge economic potentials in the maritime sector by including the revitalization of the Gele-Gele Seaport in Edo State in the 2024 budget estimates;

(ii) Mandate the Committee on Maritime Safety, Education and Administration (when constituted) to ensure compliance.

Debate:

Hon. Esosa Iyawe moved the motion on the need to revive Gele–Gele Seaport, Edo state and it was seconded by Hon. Blessing Onuh. The motion was voted on, adopted and referred to the House Committee on Maritime, Safety Education and Administration when constituted.

Hon. Sani Egidi Abdulraheem:

The House:

Notes that the annual recurring incident of flooding in Ganaja, the confluence area in Kogi State is crippling the socio-economic activities of residents and other Nigerians plying the road, thus, destroying lives and property in the affected area;

Also notes that in January 2023, the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet), released a seasonal climate prediction with a forecast of the early onset of heavy rain throughout Nigeria, the forecast prediction of imminent flooding is already stirring Nigerians living in the Ganaja flood-prone area;

Concerned that Ganaja, the confluence area in Kogi State, is part of the 178 (one hundred and seventy-eight) Local Government Areas in 32 (thirty-two) Sates that fall within the anticipated flood-prone areas as stipulated by the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency in its annual flood outlook;

Also concerned that Nigerians are yet to recover from the effect of the 2022 flood in Ganaja within Ajaokuta Local Government Area of Kogi State, which affected not less than 1 million (one million) Nigerians, about 300 (three hundred) thousand Nigerians displaced, 5 (five) thousand homesteads and houses damaged, an estimated 80 (eighty) hectares of farmland destroyed, and several lives lost;

Aware that the 2022 flood made the Federal Government constitute a committee to develop a comprehensive Plan of Action for Preventing future Flood Disasters in Nigeria;

Also aware that the federal road passing through Ganaja and linking the 5 (five) South East States will be inaccessible during the fast-approaching flood season and will gravely affect the socio-economic activities of Nigerians plying the road to transport their goods and services to markets within the State and from the Northern States to the South Eastern States;

Worried that the if urgent measure is not taken to provide control measures to avert future floods, it will permanently cut off the South-East States and the rest part of the State during the flood season;

Cognizant of the provisions of the National Environmental (Soil, Erosion, and Flood Control) Regulations, 2011, on the fundamental objectives of the Regulations which protect human life and the environment;

Resolves to:

(i) Invite the Director General, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and all Federal Government Agencies to brief the House on the measures put in place to ameliorate flood disasters on the federal road in Ganaja linking five South East States;

(ii) Urge the Federal Government of Nigeria to adequately prepare palliative intervention inclusive of speed boats to convey Nigerians across the flood on the federal road in Ganaja to prevent severe socio-economic adverse effects;

(iii) Also urge the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), and National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to liaise with the Kogi State Ministry of Works and Housing to provide an alternative bypass to the Federal Road in Ganaja in the flood-prone area to prevent cutting off the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja and other Northern States from accessing the South East States through Kogi State;

(iv) Mandate the Committees of the Works, Federal Roads Maintenance and, Emergency and Disaster Preparedness (when constituted) to, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), and National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), investigate the threat posed by the flood on the Federal Road in Ganaja, ensure compliance and report back within three (3) weeks for further legislative action.

  1. Need to Investigate the Non–remittance of Due Taxes by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) into the Federation.

Hon. Uduak A. Odudoh:

The House:

Notes that Section 162(1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) provides for “The Federation Account” in which all revenues collected by the Government of the Federation except such exempted therein are paid;

Also notes that the said “Federation Account” belongs to the entire federation while the Federal Government keeps the same in trust on behalf of three tiers of Government in Particular and Nigerians at large;

Aware that the Allocation of Revenue (Federation Account, e.t.c) Act, prescribes the basis for the distribution of revenue accruing to the federation account between the Federal, State Governments and Local Government Areas in Nigeria;

Also aware that the fate of the National Development largely depends on how transparent and accountable relevant Government agencies and corporate entities are in the collation, remittance and distribution of revenues solely acquired;

Convinced that section 6 of the Allocation of Revenue (Federation Account, e.t.c) Act, established the “Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC)” to among other functions, report annually to the National Assembly in respect of the function under the Act;

Also convinced that the non-remittance of crude sales, royalties and taxes by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) into the Federation Account has been a reoccurring decimal and a sad narrative constituting a subject matter without opposing views;
Cognizant that the Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) had severally accused the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) of short-changing it by refusing to pay over 2 trillion naira to the Federation Account from crude sales, royalties and taxes;

Further aware that the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited averred that the Federal Government owed it over four (4) trillion naira of subsidy payments, power debt and other sundry charges and therefore would not remit until the debts are recovered;

Further notes that the Non–remittance accusation and counter-accusation are tantamount to a calculated attempt to disrespect and downplay the collective intelligence of Nigerians;

Hon. Yusuf Shittu Galambi:

The House:

Notes that the Kano-Maiduguri road is a major link to several States in the country including Kano, Jigawa, Bauchi, Yobe and Borno States among others;

Also notes that in October, 2006, the Federal Government approved a contract for the dualisation of the road, which was divided into five (5) sections with Section 1 covering 202 kilometers dual line along Kano–Wudil–Gaya in Kano State and Shuwarin in Jigawa State;

Aware that the contract for the construction of Section 1 of the project was awarded to Dantata and Sawoe Construction Company Nigeria Limited;

Cognizant that prompt completion of the road will, not only provide safety for commuters, but also boost socio-economic activities of communities in the area;

  1. Rehabilitation of Federal Science and Technical College, Ukana Offot in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State and Other Institutions for Technical and Vocational Education Across the Country.

Hon. Mark Esset:

The House:

Notes that Technical and vocational education is critical to boosting the economy and development of any developing nation as it is concerned with qualitative technological human resources development geared towards a national pool of skilled and self-reliant craftsmen, technicians and technologists in technical and vocational education fields;

Also notes that while technical education is not designed for any particular vocation but provides general technical knowledge and prepares people for entry into recognized occupations at a higher level, vocational education on the other hand refers to skill-based programmes which are designed for skill acquisition at a lower level of education and focuses on specific vocations for entry into defined workplaces;

Further notes that technical education is usually a merger of technical education and vocational education, that is, the inclusion of basic technical and scientific knowledge with the skill-based vocational programme, thus it is deemed to be the answer to youth unemployment, given its place in proffering a proactive solution to the corrosive unemployment rate in Nigeria;

Concerned that the Federal Science and Technical College College at Ukana Offot in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State as well as other Institutions for technical and vocational education across the country are in deplorable conditions and portray an unserious attitude to the country’s quest for technological development;

Also concerned that the laboratories and workshops in the Federal Science and Technical in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State and other Institutions for technical and vocational education in Nigeria are dilapidated and in need of re-engineering and reinvention;

Aware that according to experts, training citizens on the need to be technologically literate would eventually lead to self-reliance and sustainability, thus technical education, more than any other profession, has a direct impact on the development of the country;

Worried that despite all the glaring contributions of technical and vocational education in the nation, Nigeria is yet to accord this type of education the attention it deserves, and that is one of the major reasons for the rising unemployment, poverty and unabated crimes in the society today;

Also worried that polytechnics, which are supposed to admit students from technical colleges, have been relegated as the students are reluctant to apply for admissions into the institutions due to dilapidated infrastructure, obsolete equipment, inadequate and unqualified teachers and instructors to meet with current industry skills impartation;

Cognizant that Technical and vocational education cannot effectively contribute to the reduction of abject poverty, hunger and unemployment in Nigeria unless the institutions for technical and vocational education are adequately funded, equipped, and properly incentivized;

Resolves to:

(i) Urge the Federal Government to rehabilitate, adequately fund and equip the Federal Science and Technical College at Ukana Ofot in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, as well as other Institutions for Technical and Vocational Education Across the country;

(ii) Also urge the Federal Government to provide Special intervention funds for procurement of workshop facilities for technical and vocational institutions across the country;

(iii) Mandate the Committee on Tertiary Education and Services (when constituted) to investigate and ascertain the true status of Institutions for Technical and Vocational Education across the country with a view to proffering solutions to the issues preventing the institutions from functioning optimally and impacting the economy, and report back within four (4) weeks for further legislative action.
