Even though the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to declare winner of yesterday’s governorship election in Anambra State, there were indications last night that the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate, and incumbent governor of the state, Chief Willie Obiano, might retain his job.

Feelers from across the state showed that the candidate performed fairly well in wider areas than any other candidate in the election. Specifically however, early results from polling units in Allor, Nnewi, Aguluzigbo, Aguleri among other areas in Anambra South showed a straight fight between Obiano and the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Tony Nwoye.

The Guardian also gathered that in the northern and central parts of the state, it was a ding-dong between APGA and APC, as stakeholders delivered their various polling units to their political parties.Facts available,  also show that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may have to wait for another four years to re-contest the governorship seat which, it lost to the ruling APGA over 10 years ago. Sources said that the party may not have done well in the election, as in several polling units, it trailed behind the two leading parties.

The discordant tunes, which the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been playing continued yesterday, as the party insisted that it has no other candidate to present as its presidential flagbearer come 2019 other than the incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari.

This is coming shortly after the Chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum, and Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, said there would be no automatic ticket for Buhari.

While speaking to State House Correspondents two days after some APC governors endorsed Buhari for a second term, Okorocha said there would be no automatic ticket for Buhari in 2019 if he decided to re-contest.He maintained that even though the president was democratically qualified to re-contest, he (Okorocha) and others would resist an imposition of his candidature on the APC.


“We don’t allow imposition of candidates, it must be democratically done. If President Buhari will lead the ship in 2019, it must be democratically done and I say democratically done, transparently to the amazement of the whole world, the way it will take place and the way we do our thing in APC.”But national chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun, while addressing members during the flag-off of campaign ahead of local council elections in Akwa Ibom State, at the Uyo Township Stadium, said the party has no other choice than
Buhari.

Round the country, inadequate infrastructure and equipment has left most teaching hospitals in dire straits. While this happens, top government officials and wealthy Nigerians are streaming abroad for world-class healthcare services.
 
The University of Uyo Teaching Hospital (UUTH) located along Abak Road, Uyo, is one of such tertiary health facilities that is nearly comatose owing to the weight of large uncompleted projects, occasioned by lack of attention and paucity of funds.

Established in 1999 as Federal Medical Centre, Uyo, the Federal Government in 2008 upgraded the facility to a teaching hospital, affiliated to the University of Uyo College of Medicine.

Since inception, the hospital has been serially neglected, and had to start off as UUTH without any take-off grant. It has also been operating without electricity supply from the national grid. It depends essentially on power generating plants, a development, which forces it to spend over N9m monthly on diesel.

The main two storey building, which houses several facilities of the hospital has little or no space left. Daily, large numbers of patients throng the narrow corridor of the ground floor of the General Out Patient Department (GOPD), where they wait for hours to be attended to by doctors. The ventilation there is very poor and patients, mostly women and children sweat profusely.

On July 15, 2016, during a visit to Galaxy Backbone Plc in Abuja, Minister of Communications, Alhaji Adebayo Shittu, opened up on his ministry’s plan to float a specialised Information and Communications Technology (ICT) university in the country.

According to Shittu, the decision to establish the institution came after a careful observation of the exponential growth in the Nigerian information technology and telecommunication sectors.On the strength of this observation, the government concluded that the country required a university to support the human capacity requirement needed to transform the economy digitally.


For this reason, Shittu said the ministry would transform the Digital Bridge Institute (DBI), the training arm of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), into a full-fledged university.Shittu, who said the varsity would be the first in Africa, pointed out that there were dedicated universities for the training of manpower for ICT sector in very many advanced countries. So, “We want to replicate that in Nigeria. Once we get the nod of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), we will commence the establishment of an implementation committee to guide the process of transforming the DBI.

“I am happy to say that we already have what is called the DBI, which is for short-term training programme in six locations across the country, which includes Abuja, Lagos, Enugu, Kano, Asaba and Yola. We hope to transform this institute into the ICT University of Nigeria,” he stated.

The reality in Nigeria, as it is with other African countries, is that the pace of implementation of capital-intensive public infrastructure projects lags way behind those carried out by private institutions.
