The governor disclosed this on Thursday in Maiduguri, the Borno capital, while receiving some members of the House of Representatives, according to TheCable. Zulum also said more than 700,000 IDPs in Monguno and 400,000 in Gamboru Ngala had no access to their farmland According to the governor, the continued stay of able-bodied persons in IDPs’ camps poses a serious problem that could worsen the crisis. He said, “The only solution we have now is to ensure the safe return of our people to their homes in a dignified manner. If nothing is done, believe me sincerely, we shall face a very serious challenge, even more than what we are facing now. “This is because right now, the insurgents are recruiting many of our children into the sect because of the increasing unemployment rate.” The governor advised the federal lawmakers, who were in Maiduguri for an oversight function at the North-East Development Commission, to focus on long-term development in the region instead of giving short-term humanitarian support. He also urged them to work out sustainable policies to ensure the safe return of IDPs to their communities. Copyright PUNCH. All rights reserved.

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
