UN Chief Expresses Sadness Over China’s Landslide

Published

on

The Secretary-General of the UN, Mr António Guterres, says he is saddened to learn of the loss of lives and devastation caused by the mudslides in Maoxin county, Sichuan Province, in China.

Guterres, in a statement by Mr Stéphane Dujarric, the Spokesman for the secretary-general, condoled the Government and people of China over the incident.

The massive landslide buried more than 120 people, with 15 confirmed dead and 118 still missing, according to reports.

The secretary-general saluted the efforts of the national relief and recovery teams.

“The United Nations stands ready to support the authorities in any way it can if needed,’’ Guterres said.

The UN chief, while extending his condolences to the people and Government of China, wished those injured a speedy recovery.

About 1,000 rescue workers using life-detection equipment hustled through the night to locate survivors. Dozens of homes were buried.

Heavy rainfall is thought to be a possible cause of the accident, according to the provincial government’s Land and Resources Department.

Chinese President Xi Jinping said in a statement “authorities must make maximum efforts to reduce casualties and prevent secondary disasters’’.

“Relatives of the missing and those suffering losses in the disaster will be given appropriate care’’, Xi said.

Xi called for “all-out efforts’’ to save those who were buried as authorities inaugurated the highest level of disaster response.

The landslide occurred at 6 a.m. local time Saturday in Xinmo village in Mao County, Aba Prefecture, reports said.

A smaller, second landslide caused huge rocks to fall onto the village, which made it more difficult for heavy machinery to get to the scene, according to reports.

Immigration Service Ban 150 Nigerians From Traveling Abroad

Published

By

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) says no fewer than 150 Nigerians were disallowed from travelling out of the country in the last four months in the fight against human trafficking.

Mr Abdullahi Usman, the Comptroller in charge of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, made this known to newsmen, while receiving the management of Access Bank at the airport.

According to Usman, those refused departure were within the range age of 16 to 40 years.

“They were sensitised on the reasons for their refusal and most of them were satisfied,” NAN quoted him as saying.

“We told them that if they had gone, it would have been a disaster for them. We also ensure they were profiled at the same venue where the returnees were being kept.

“They witnessed the returnees and it became very clear to them. Most of them were innocent of where they are going to, while some of them knew.

“When we came, we introduced anti-human trafficking to look basically into human tracking issues,” he said.

The comptroller said that no fewer than 58, 000 visas were issued from January to Dec. 5 on arrival to foreigners who arrived through the MMIA in Lagos.

He said that most of the beneficiaries were investors coming into the country.

He said the visa-on-arrival procedure was targeted at investors coming into Nigeria to do business as part of the Ease of Doing Business policy of the Federal Government.

“We have upgraded our visa on arrival from email-based to web-based to improve our services.

“Applicants can now log into the website and fill in their details and also get their approvals directly from there instead of using a third party which was what we were doing before because they have to send a representative here to process it.

“So, the increase in the issuance is to ease procedure and encourage more investors to come into the country to invest,’’ Usman said.

On airport operations, he said that the new Migration Information and Data Analysis System (MIDAS), had been installed at the airport.

He said that this was to enable immigration and border officials to process travellers more rapidly and professionally and as well make their border-crossing experience safer and more humane.

Published

By

The attention of the Nigeria Customs Service has again been drawn to the unrepentant activities of internet fraudsters despite several scam alerts by NCS.

Recent activities of these elements show criminal ingenuity, presenting fake platforms that appears seemingly genuine to deceive and extort unsuspecting applicants that the Service has released short-listed names for recruitment examination/interview.

For the umpteenth time, NCS wishes to state that these recruitment websites/platforms are fake and should not be patronized.

Members of the public will recall that we denied several similar fake vacancies advertisement with a promise to properly inform the public whenever we are ready. A promise we kept by advertising the vacancies in seven (7) National newspapers.

NCS is again warning against patronage of any release of short-listed candidates with a promise of letting successfully short-listed candidates know through their email addresses and telephone numbers soon.

Additionally, such official release will be news item in all NCS programmes on TV and Radio stations. (Note that the internet fraudsters don’t normally use the TV and Radio).

Accordingly, all applicants are advised to disregard any invitation for recruitment examination/interview and wait patiently for the official release and invitation from the Service, please.

Signed:
DC, Joseph Attah
Public Relations Officer
