Nigeria’s immediate past Vice President, Namadi Sambo, is recuperating in the United States after undergoing a complex surgery to save his leg from amputation.

Former Vice President Namadi Sambo recuperating from surgery

A source told S.R that Mr. Sambo is currently in the Washington, DC area after a surgery to repair a severe knee ligament disorder that almost resulted in the amputation of one of his legs below the knee. Before becoming Vice President to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Sambo had served as the governor of Kaduna State.

“The former Vice President, Architect Namadi Sambo, visited or consulted several hospitals in the US before he was admitted by a DC-area hospital for an extensive ligament reconstructive surgery,” said our source, a Nigerian diplomat. He added that Mr. Sambo’s surgery took place in mid-August. He said the former vice president was in intensive rehab for several weeks after the surgery.

“He was not able to walk for some weeks due to the nature of the surgery,” our source said.

The immediate former governor of Kaduna State, Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, visited the recovering former Vice President in September, our source disclosed. Mr. Yero, a close political associate of the former Vice President, in April lost his reelection bid in an election won by Nasir el-Rufai, the current governor of Kaduna State.  

Mr. Sambo remains in the Maryland area where he continues to recuperate and to undergo extensive physical therapy to help restore his ability to walk normally again.

COMPLETE ONGOING PROJECTS, SHUN NEW ONES, FASHOLA TELLS OSHIOMHOLE

Former governor of Lagos State, Mr Babatunde Fashola, has advised Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State to shun the temptation of initiating new projects unless they are very critical to the well-being of the people, but should rather concentrate on completing ongoing ones before the end of his tenure in November 2016.

Fashola told the governor that he could not completely rebuild Edo State within eight years, as it is practically impossible for any administration to initiate and execute all the projects needed by people in the state.

Speaking as Guest Speaker at a three-day retreat for members of Edo State Executive Council and Permanent Secretaries, holding in Abuja, to brainstorm and re-strategise on raising the bar on governance in the state, with the theme, “Finishing Well”, Fashola said: “This gathering is auspicious because for me, it demonstrates the focus of your government. You are clearly mindful that the time is up. Let me emphasise that time is up, time is not running out, it is up, the government’s tenure is at an end. What you have now is the process to walk out. It is easy to say you have not finished the job. So in that sense, there is work to do, you must accept that and you must also be honest with yourself that you can’t finish the work. The reason is that, it is the work of the people, work of human beings and as long as the human civilization remains, work will never end because it is a continuous undertaking.

“If the work could be finished, Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia would have finished it. He had more time than you have and if it could not be finished at that time, the late Ambrose Alli would have finished it and probably John Odigie-Oyegun. So, in that sense, it won’t be finished. In the last few days, there would be a lot of talk about what you did not do, and there will be people asking you, before you go, come and do this, but you must be honest with yourself and be honest with them, having regards to the realities of your resources. The pressure can be enormous, but don’t see that it as negative, it is not. See it as positive because they are asking you to do it only because they trust in your ability to do it that is why they are asking you.”

FUEL not SCARCE, STOP PANIC BUYING, NNPC TELLS NIGERIANS

FUEL not SCARCE, STOP PANIC BUYING, NNPC TELLS NIGERIANS

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Tuesday, called on Nigerians to desist from panic buying of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as fuel, stating that it has about 23 days of product supply in all its depots across the country.

Reacting to the resurgence of fuel queues in some cities across the country, the NNPC, in a statement by Mr. Ohi Alegbe, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, stated that its depots have about 927.461 million litres of PMS which is enough to serve the country for the next 23 days if no drop of the product is imported within the period.

The NNPC blamed the resurgence of queues at petrol filling stations on rumour of an impending scarcity, assuring that it has enough products to meet the demand of the country.

It also warned oil marketers not to engage in sharp practices, stating that anyone found wanting would be dealt with decisively.

The NNPC noted that it recently held a meeting with the members of the Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) and the Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association (DAPPMA) to rally them for the uninterrupted fuel supply policy of the administration.

It also stated that it has set up a monitoring team at the Pipeline and Products Marketing Company (PPMC) to check sharp practices that could breach the distribution and supply system.

It warned marketers not to engage in products hoarding and diversion as the PPMC monitoring team is empowered to sanction anyone found defaulting in those regards.

The NNPC had on Monday promised to work with other downstream petroleum sector stakeholders to eliminate obstacles to the free flow in supply of petroleum products across the country.

Mr. Ibe Kachikwu, Group Managing Director of the NNPC had also vowed to work with other relevant Federal Government agencies to fast track the payment of outstanding subsidy claims to oil marketers.

In the interim, Kachikwu had promised to arrange for a meeting with the relevant creditors (bankers) to ease off pressure on marketers and extend the credit lines.

He added that several financing mechanism are being explored to offset the commitment to oil marketers.

He hinted at the possibility of exploring the monthly payment option, stating that the Federal Government might, in the future, explore some creative means to prevent backlogs.

Kachikwu had also stated that the issue of uninterrupted supply and distribution of petroleum products across the country is of utmost importance to the present administration.

He noted that the Federal Government is willing to do everything possible to ensure that members of the public do not go through any form of hardship in accessing petroleum products particularly PMS.
