By Deji Elumoye in Abuja The Senate on Tuesday approved N30,000 as national minimum wage with its passage of the National Minimum Wage Act (Repeal & Enactment) Bill 2019. This is sequel to the presentation of the report of the ad-hoc committee on the national minimum wage by its acting chairman, Senator Francis Alimikhena (Edo North). The Senate Committee of the Whole had considered and approved all the 18-clause report of the Alimikhena-led committee after a motion moved to this effect by Senate Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan. The House of Representatives had in January approved N30,000 as new minimum wage after holding a public hearing on the national minimum wage bill presented to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has insisted that it will not present a certificate of return to Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha. INEC’s National Commissioner for Information and Voter Education, Mr. Festus Okoye, said this, yesterday. He said the electoral body took the decision because the returning officer for Imo West senatorial district election said he declared governor Okorocha as the winner “under duress.” Although the governor insisted he won the election fairly, and that his victory was not declared under duress, his name was not on the list of those to be given a certificate of return, and despite his protest against the decision, he wasn’t given a certificate when winners got theirs last week.

His preaching was a fulfilment of prophecy and the great expectation that the prophets have spoken about. He preached unto them powerfully, purposefully and authoritatively, and not like the Scribes or Pharisees. See the purpose of His preaching, “The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up” (Matthew 4:16). Christ’s preaching came to show light unto the people that sat in spiritual and total darkness. He came to enlighten them, and He spoke authoritatively to sweep away the darkness of superstition, tradition and errors. His Word brought life to those in the shadow of death and an end to their superstitions, traditions and error. “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17). What did He preach? All the blessings and goodness of the Kingdom that they could become beneficiaries now because He is the Door and has the key
