Oyo State government on Monday said it is currently investigating the visit of some Christian missionaries to some public schools in the state.

Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Barrister Abdulrahman Abdulraheem made this disclosure in Ibadan during a reception organised by the National Council of Muslim Youth Organisations, (NACOMYO) for new Muslim Commissioners, Local Government Chairmen, National Amirah of FOMWAN and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria in the state.

Dignitaries present at the event included Professor Rashid Aderinoye, Imam Habeebulahi Buhari and NACOMYO Coordinator, Alhaji Dawood Afolabi.

Our correspondent recalls that Muslims in the state had earlier raised an alarm that foreign missionaries attached to Evangelist Daniel Kolenda were going to pubic schools to preach Christianity to Muslim students.

Following the development, the Oyo State chapter of the Federation of Muslim Women’s Associations in Nigeria (FOMWAN) cautioned the state’s Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) and school principals.

The state government in a reaction has however said it was already investigating the matter.

Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Abdulrahman Abdulraheem, who spoke on behalf of the government on Monday, pledged that the case would not be swept under the carpet.

He added that thorough investigations were on to know how the team gained access into the schools without due process.

Abdraheem explained that measures had also been adopted to prevent the recurrence of such incidents in the future.

He said, “There has been an existing circular regarding religious activities in schools which we update from time to time. If there is any visitor to our schools, even if they want to donate materials there, after meeting the principals, they must get approvals from the Ministry before such visitors could address the students. We don’t allow students to interact with visitors without observing the protocols.

“The incident really baffled us in the Ministry and personally I have sleepless nights on the case and we have taken a lot of steps which I might not be able to reveal now but I am assuring you that the case will not be swept under the carpets. We must check such excesses. Though, both the Chairman and the Permanent Secretary of TESCOM are Christians but the truth is that they were not responsible for the incident. They are innocent regarding the matter.

“We will make necessary amendments and forgive us and we are assuring you that such will not happen again. When I saw their letter of apology, I was happy but when there was a report the following day of another visit, it really saddened my heart but we have taken different steps and you will soon see the result”.

Chairman, Oyo State Muslim Community, Kunle Sanni explained that causes being fought for were always for the generality of the Muslims and not for any selfish interest.

“We are not asking for any selfish things. None of my children is working with Oyo State Government to say that that is whom we are fighting for but for the generality of the Muslims. A Muslim who wakes up and does not wish for the progress of his fellow Muslims is not worthy of calling a Muslim”.

Some policemen from different formations and commands across the country have raised the alarm over the non-payment of their November salaries.

They made this disclosure when they spoke with DAILY POST on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

The officers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, insisted the non-payment of their November salary has compounded their suffering.

The officers, who said that they are hungry, said that other security agents have been paid their November salaries.

The officers noted several attempts to get their salary up till Wednesday have proved to be abortive.

They explained that the police authority in a signal do not state when their salaries would be paid.

One of the officers said, “Help us shout it loud and clear, no November salary for police, the signal above indicated like that.

“All others security agents have been paid. What is our offense, is it a curse to be in Nigeria police?”

Another officer said that anyone who reveal his or her identity would be accused of leaking official secret.

“Economic crunch has crushed most of us due to irrational cost of living, an hungry man is an hangry.

“Police is seriously hunting any one that air his views, they say you are leaking official secret, they want you to remain zombie, suffering and smelling, please cover the identity”.

Another police officer in his own submission said, “It is lame excuses, police can not bare the brunt, is not our fault it is leadership failures, for Christ sake all others security agents have been paid since last week, today is 8/12, how do they want us to survive when we are not doing other jobs or to go and commit crimes.”

But, the police authority in a signal issued by Force Headquarters in Abuja and obtained by DAILY POST on Wednesday, noted that the delay was due to delay in processing of funds from the federal ministry of finance.

The signal addressed to various commands and formations reads, “Information received from IPPIS unit of OAGF indicates delay in processing of funds from federal ministry of finance for payment of November 2021 salaries which that there will be delay in payment of November 2021 salary.”

Simba TVS, Nigeria’s leading tricycle company has launched the brand new TVS King Deluxe+ tricycle, with revolutionary iTouch technology. Aimed at creating an easier, safer and more comfortable riding experience, the innovative new starting system of the vehicle is a product of extensive research and development by TVS Motor Company – one of the world’s largest two- and three-wheeler companies.

At a glittering event held at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos, the Simba Group launched the TVS King Deluxe+ with iTouch, which contains several upgraded features and enhancements over existing models, with the revolutionary new starting system forming the cornerstone of this next generation vehicle.

This iTouch feature assures a one-touch noiseless start and is made possible as a result of a new starting system that completely eliminates the starter motor. This not only reduces the frequency of wear on parts, but also reduces fuel consumption resulting in significantly reduced operating costs of the vehicle. The rider also enjoys a starting mechanism that is more convenient and comfortable, and an enhanced riding experience overall as a result.

As the first and only tricycle manufacturer worldwide to have this patented and revolutionary technology we are very excited about the benefits that will be experienced by our riders, our fleet owners and our mechanic community. Once again, Simba TVS has driven the agenda in terms of innovation in this market, and we remain committed to not only bringing the best technology and products to Nigeria, but continuing to invest in the spares network and after-sales service, which has become the hallmark of our success over the last twenty years in this industry.”
