The Chairperson of the House of Representatives Committee on NEDC, Khadija Bukar-Abba, made the appeal during an oversight visit to the commission. Bukar-Abba, who led members of the committee to Maiduguri, Borno State capital, said given the enormity of humanitarian challenges in the zone, the commission required large funds to enable it to effectively discharge its duties. Speaking with journalists, she said, “The NEDC is grossly underfunded, and given the quantum of work that needs to be done, we strongly feel the commission should get more funding. “We have visited some of the internally displaced persons’ camps and had a first-hand experience of the depth of suffering the people are going through, especially women and children. Also speaking, the MD/CEO of NEDC, Mohammed Alkali, said funds released to the commission were used for the settlement, rehabilitation and reconstruction of roads, houses and business premises of the victims of insurgency, as well as tackling the menace of poverty, illiteracy level, ecological problems and any other related environmental or developmental challenges in the North-East states.

Osinbajo said this on Friday during a session with the Vice-President of Facebook’s Policy and Communication, Nick Clegg, The Cable reported. The code, which has stirred a lot of controversy, seeks to regulate content exclusivity, enforce content sharing and empower the NBC to determine prices at which content is sold to sub-licensees by rights holders. Also, the fine for hate speech has been increased from N500,000 to N5m. Osinbajo said there is need to take a second look at the code so as not to “stifle the work of hardworking, creative people”. “The NBC code is one where there is now activity around trying to take a second look at it. Those who say that it is pro-competition, it is one I think we should take a second look at,” Osinbajo said. “Basically, it says if you have a licenced product for TV, you’re expected to share it with other platforms. It’s one which I understand the argument of those who say this is a violation of copyright and intellectual property which is a very strong point and this is why I think we have to take a second look at it and see whether there are ways of moderating it to be more acceptable so as not stifle the work of very very hardworking, creative people.” DOWNLOAD THE PUNCH NEWS APP NOW ON   Receive Alerts on: Whatsapp: +2349090060943, Twitter: @MobilePunch, BBM: C003D3DC0 Share your story with us: SMS: +2349090060943,Whatsapp: +2349090060943, Email: FOREX , BITCOIN and BINARY TRADER: DO YOU NEED THE SERVICE OF A PROFESSIONAL FOREX, BITCOIN and BINARY TRADER TO HELP YOU TRADE YOUR ACCOUNTS FOR WEEKLY 20% PROFIT?....Click here for details: www.betaforex.org WhatsApp us : +2348030797998 PrivateProperty.com.ng - Your Nigeria Property Search.  Property For Sale: Houses | Apartments | Land |Commercial  More in Just In  Ogun workers, doctors suspend strike, Abiodun pledges to pay gratuity arrears    Boko Haram recruiting children, over 1.1m IDPs can’t access farms – Zulum    I want justice for my son attacked with hot oil –Mother of 24-year-old puff puff seller    Mourners feared dead as bus plunges into Ebonyi river    Misau dumps PDP, rejoins Dogara in APC Property For Rent: Houses | Apartments | Commercial  OSINBAJO NBC CODE ‌ ‌ Subscribe to Punch News Alert Email Address *  Comments Classic version © 1971-2019 The Punch newspaper NEXT ARTICLE
