Happy 62nd Anniversary of Nigeria’s Independence!


Nigeria celebrates Independence Day on the first of October as a recognized national holiday. On October 1, 1960, Nigeria declared its independence from British authority.

An overview of Nigeria’s independence day history

Today’s prevalence of European culture The first European explorers from Spain and Portugal started dealing with locals in the 16th century, which led to the growth of ports like Lagos.

The British became an increasingly dominant influence on the region in the late 19th century through the Royal Niger Company, resisting German attempts to expand in the region.

In 1900, the territories under the control of the Royal Niger Company became the Southern Nigeria Protectorate. In 1914, this was combined with the Northern Nigeria Protectorate to create the Colony and Protectorate of Nigeria, which forms the borders of modern-day Nigeria.

Many aspects of modern life in Nigeria were established under the period of British Rule, but by the middle of the 20th century, the call for independence sweeping across Africa and the decline of the territories in the British Empire led to Nigeria being granted independence on October 1st 1960 under a constitution with a parliamentary government and a degree of autonomy for the country’s three regions.

Nigeria marked total independence from Britain when it became a federal republic when a new constitution was adopted on 1 October 1963 with Nnamdi Azikiwe as its first president.

Political unrest led to a series of military coups in 1966 and Nigeria was ruled by a military junta with the democratic rule not being restored until October 1st 1979.

Why the Labour Party Campaign Council Is Still Unreleased – Umeh


NaijaNews reports that according to Senator Victor Umeh, a leader of the Labour Party, LP, the party’s campaign council for presidential candidate Peter Obi is being postponed to ensure the best team was organized.

This was stated by the former federal legislator on Friday while answering questions from reporters during an Igbo Day celebration in Awka, Anambra State.

According to him, Obi can win the 2023 presidential race without a campaign council, saying that the party does things differently.

He said: “We are careful in the Labour Party. We don’t do things because others are doing them. We search for things that will make Nigeria great again.

“When we searched for Obi’s running mate, you saw that we waited to ensure we got someone who matched the pairing. Yusuf Datti Ahmed is a very seasoned person”.

The Middle Belt Forum on Wednesday endorsed Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, as their candidate for the 2023 elections. NijaNews reports.

The forum also stated that it was supporting Obi’s campaign because it believed in “fairness, equity, and justice.”

This was disclosed by the chairman of the Forum and Convener of Middle Belt for OBIDATTI 2023, Dr. Pogu Bitrus, while unveiling Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti as their candidate for the 2023 presidential election at the Rwang Pam Township Stadium, Jos, Plateau State Capital.

Bitrus said, “We are here to tell Nigerians that the Middle Belt is fully in support of Peter Obi for the 2023 presidency.

“We did not just arrive at this point because of sentiment, but it was after serious consideration of issues in Nigeria in collaboration with the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the Afenifere, and the Niger Delta Forum, among other socio-cultural groups in the country.

“We believe in the zoning which we started in 1999 that produced the President from the South West. It is good for us because of the issue of equity, justice, and fairness.

According to him, “This time around, we have a President from the North and by 2023 Buhari would have spent 8 years, and it is the turn of the South.”

In his remarks, the LP Presidential candidate, Obi urged Nigerians to pray for a peaceful election and pledged to provide security to protect Nigerians.

“We want to tell you that 2023 is nobody’s turn, it is your turn to take back Nigeria.

“As we start a campaign today, I want you to put Nigeria into prayers, I want you to pray for a peaceful election, I want you to pray for a free and fair election because the suffering is too much.

According to him, “Now that the campaigns have started, they will come to share your money, that money is your own and that is why you are hungry, that is why there is no food, that is why there is no security, that is why there is no employment.

“But we are assuring you, we are coming to tackle hunger in Nigeria, we are coming to provide security.”

He assured the crowd that they will match words with action if elected into office come 2023, saying the era of giving excuses and blame game is over.

In his address, the Convener of Initiative for Better and Brighter Nigeria (IBBN), Prophet Isa El-Buba urged the citizenry to reject those who have made huge sacrifices with their blood and resources and urged them to vote for Peter Obi to take back their inheritance.

He urged the people to collect their PVCs and vote massively for Peter Obi, saying that the Middle Belt and the North will mobilize their support to win the presidency.

See the Number of Professors lost by UNICAL in the past 7 months.


NaijaNews reports that between January 2022 and September 2022, not fewer than eleven teachers would be lost, according to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the University of Calabar.

Dr. John Edor, the Chairman of ASUU at the University of Calabar, who spoke with our Calabar correspondent on Tuesday, corroborated this.

Dr Edor, however, stressed that the union, despite intimidation and neglect by the Federal Government, would not give up its insistence on their demands until the government met ASUU’s demands.

“It is not correct that we lost 21 lecturers. The truth is we lost about 12 members of the union between the commencement of the strike (February 2022) and now (September 2022).

“The government has not provided a conducive environment devoid of all impediments. We will continue to cope with whatever losses we have had. We will continue to embrace all the hazards, We are not ready to give in because of hunger, intimidation or court action. We are ready to take this fight to a logical end until the necessary things are done which the government ought to do”, Edor reiterated.

Sources within the university stated that the university had repeatedly published obituary announcements, announcing the death and interments of deceased academics, from the institution.

Peter Obi Surpasses Tinubu, Atiku Has 51% Support –We2Geda


NaijaNews reports that according to a recent survey by the public advocacy organization We2Geda Foundation, Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), who is running for president, is 51 percent ahead of the other contenders.

The results of the poll were dated September 17, 2022, and they were signed by Muna Obioha, a member of the BoT, and Ibrahim Abdulkareem, the chairman of We2Geda’s Board of Trustees.

The group said 51 percent of respondents suggested voting for Obi as their preferred candidate, 25 percent suggested voting for Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) while Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ranked third in the voter preference poll with 19 percent.

“Further analysis also shows that Peter Obi remained a consistent favourite in the four major geopolitical zones including North-Central, South-South, South-West and South-East, while Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was the poll leader in the NorthEast and North-West zones,” the group said.

We2Geda explained that Nigerians between 26 and 50 years constituted the highest number of respondents in a random survey with a total of 15,438 registered voters in 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

The new poll was released about two weeks after a pro-democracy group Anap Foundation released the result of its poll ahead of the 2023 presidential election which it described as a three-horse race between Obi, Atiku and Tinubu.

According to the result of the Anap poll, Obi is leading the race with 21 percent of votes.

Why Afenifere Is Supporting Peter Obi-Adebanjo


NaijaNews reports that Afenifere’s leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, explains why his organization will endorse Peter Obi in the general elections of 2023 on behalf of the Labour Party.

The leader of Afenifere also outlined the group’s reasons for opposing Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Adebanjo, in a statement on Monday, the Afenifere leader said the group stood on justice and fairness and believed in true federalism and the Federal Character principle.

His justification comes on the heels of the backlash that followed his earlier announcement of the group’s support for Peter Obi in the 2023 presidential election.

Adebanjo said, “…not a few Yoruba leaders questioned why I should be supporting Peter Obi, a candidate of Igbo extraction, against Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a Yoruba. I took my time to explain that the presidency is not a contest between the Yorubas and the Igbos and to a large extent I was able to convince many.

“But ever since, social media has been filled with comments tending to ethnicize the campaign instead of making it issue-based. Afenifere has, therefore, decided to address you today and through you educate the public on the ideological and equitable principles which have influenced our decision.”

According to Adebanjo, Afenifere is the Yoruba interpretation of the social welfarist ideology of the Action Group, a political party founded by Chief Obafemi Awolowo and his colleagues in 1951 with strong advocacy for federalism as the best form of government to give the federating units the requisite autonomy to thrive and peacefully compete among themselves for the ultimate development of Nigeria.

He said other founding fathers of Nigeria — Sir Ahmadu Bello, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, and Chief Obafemi Awolowo — agreed to the system with the endorsement of colonial secretary Sir Oliver Littleton in 1954 “and it was embodied in the 1960 independence constitution. This is the modest contribution of Afenifere in shaping Nigeria into a federation where no person or ethnic nationality is oppressed.”

The nonagenarian said Afenifere had always advocated and insisted on restructuring the country “long before the parties conducted their Conventions to elect their National Executives and candidates[/b],” and had proposed “a synthesis of the identical Resolutions of the 2014 National Conference and the APC El-Rufai 2018 True Federalism Committee.”

Adebanjo said Afenifere and the Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum “[b]unanimously proposed that the minimum condition for a peaceful transition from the disastrous eight years of Buhari’s government headed by a President of northern extraction was to have the next President from the South,” a position which, he said, was supported by southern governors irrespective of their political parties.

He added, “In this quest for peace, based on equity and inclusiveness, the Yoruba took the first turn at the zoning arrangement in 1999, and that led to the emergence of Chief (Olusegun) Obasanjo, the current Vice President is a Yoruba man and equity forbids us for presuming to support another Yoruba person for the presidency in 2023.

“The current President is a Fulani from the North-West and by the zoning arrangement that has governed Nigeria since 1999, power is supposed to return to the south imminently.

“The South-West, as I have pointed out, has produced a president and currently sits as VP, the South-South has spent a total of six years in the Presidency, but the Igbo people of the South-East have never tasted presidency in Nigeria, and now that the power is due back in the South, equity demands that it be ceded to the Igbo.

“We cannot continue to demand that the Igbo people remain in Nigeria, while we at the same time continue to brutally marginalize and excluded them from the power dynamics.”

Adebanjo, therefore, condemned the ceding of the PDP presidential ticket to “a Northern Fulani Muslim to succeed General Muhammadu Buhari, another Fulani Muslim, who will soon complete eight years of uneventful and disastrous rule. One can imagine such a high degree of political insensitivity.”

The Afenifere leader also stated that the group would not jettison equity, inclusiveness, and justice just because one of their own — Asiwaju Bola Tinubu — was in the contest.

“We will not compromise this principle of justice, equity, and inclusiveness because one of our own Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is a frontline candidate,” Adebanjo said.

Adebanjo, who said Afenifere had “no apologies but due courage of our conviction that Nigeria can only prosper in righteousness,” reiterated that, “To keep Nigeria one, everyone should be Obi/Datti compliant,” and advocated that that should be the slogan henceforth.

What You Should Know About Point of Sale (POS)


What You Should Know About Point of Sale (POS)

The moment and location where a retail transaction is completed are known as the point of sale (POS).

Definition of the Point of Sale (POS) Method

POS terminals are simply regular computers running software created to make it easier for a store to do its essential tasks at the point of sale.

The spot where transactions happen within a store is referred to as the point of sale (also frequently called the point of purchase). A specific counter or checkout area serves as the point of sale for the vast majority of retail establishments.

As a result, the most fundamental function of a point-of-sale terminal is to merely enable customers to pay for their purchases, cash out, make transfers, and cash in.

Nowadays, the customer’s credit or debit card authorizes the purchase and subsequently causes the printing of a receipt.

Point-of-sale terminals are typically anticipated to do a great deal more.

The majority of stores rely heavily on their terminals to manage their inventories.

Point-of-sale terminals input this kind of data into a system, which completes it in a matter of clicks.

The Function of POS Terminals

Depending on their requirements, a retailer may have a single POS terminal or several.

These terminals each have a cash drawer, a credit-card swiper, and a printer for receipts.

All terminals must be connected to the server, which will enable and finish all transactions.

A barcode scanner is frequently connected by store owners.

POS terminal advantages include:

Currently, there are many different POS terminal models available, so the advantages you experience rely on the model you pick.

Here are a few of the most typical examples.

Complete Reports:

Savings Methods:

POS Terminal servers act as small banks where money can be saved.

The money is guaranteed to be saved in whole with this.

It makes it possible to complete any type of transaction successfully.

Reporting Methods:

The POS terminal aids in keeping daily transaction activity records.

As soon as you complete a transaction, it will be promptly recorded.

It Is Quick And Smart:

A POS terminal can quickly and intelligently complete any type of transaction.

The outcome is that the shop gets more consumers.

However, a weak network may result in transactions being declined.
