As part of its customer relations strategies to make communication more seamless by removing some identified issues complained of by its customers, the management of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) recently met its South West licenses at Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, where many reservations were expressed by some licensees but finally resolved with the promise of making the sector more user-friendly and economically viable for all.

Talk to the regulator

Directing many administrators to the Pace Setter State for the two-day Stakeholder Advisory Forum on “Talking to the Regulator” with the theme: “Engaging Stakeholder Satisfaction”, held at the Golden Hotel Tulip, Jericho, Ibadan, was the Executive Vice President/CEO of the Commission, Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, who was ably represented by Mr. Babajika Mohammed (Director, Licensing and Permits), as well as the Engineer. Bako Wakil (Director, Technical Standards and Network Integrity Department).

The Chairman of the Commission, Professor Adeolu Akande, who was also inevitably absent, was apparently with the participants. In the keynote address read on his behalf by Mr. Babajika Mohammed, Executive Vice President Danbatta emphasized the need for feedback, saying, “The NCC, in line with its mandate, creates opportunities for interact with its licensees on industry issues and emerging trends via stakeholder forums, with a view to gathering relevant information that would advance industry development, while improving regulation and delivery telecommunications consumer services.

“You will agree with me that the telecommunications industry has seen a significant milestone in more ways than one, including the rapid growth of technology, which is redefining service delivery and creating wide and high expectations on the part of all stakeholders In order to keep abreast of developments in the industry, the Commission has also taken steps to improve regulation to take account of rapid and continuous change.

Some of the Commission’s interventions and responses include, but are not limited to: “Facilitate the deployment of 5G service provision. Introduction of Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) license to bridge the gap between unserved and underserved areas. The Commission is currently reviewing the scope and structure of its existing licenses to make them more robust and to take into account some of the new identified industry trends.

National Broadband Plan

“In line with the Nigeria National Broadband Plan (NNBP 2020-2025), the NCC is providing industry leadership to facilitate the achievement of 90% broadband penetration by 2025 and 50% by the end of 2022. Currently, about 150 million Nigerians have internet access, while 80 million can access high-speed internet,” he said.

Some of the licensees used the forum to express their discomfort with some of the challenges they faced in their business transaction with the NCC and some network providers that had caused them losses. A license holder complained that the cost of registering with NCC was too high and before they could even generate profits, the renewal period would have been ripe, and most of the time the license expired before they can get money to renew it. Sanctions and fines for late renewal have also been denounced. Another even complained about the cumbersome nature of check-in, asking that the system be reviewed to reduce the agony associated with paperwork. In his response, however, Babajika agreed that there must be a promising return on investment (ROI), and if not: “The essence of the given license is overcome because the license is permanent.

However, he said the licensing issue has scope and limits with terms and conditions. “Many licensees don’t look at the document and comply with it once they see their name on the website. Many of you don’t know your mandates. Six months before the expiry date of the license, the holder must notify and write to manifest his intention to renew. “Some are waiting for the license to expire. Some default up to three months after expiration, forgetting that renewal is not automatic but linked to compliance with terms and conditions. Register and ask a lawyer to advise you on what to do and what is expected of you. This will save you from penalties and sanctions.

Bad reception

On complaints from some licensees that many of their customers complain of poor reception and ineffective communication, which indirectly affects their services, Engr. Bako Wakil (Director, Technical Standards and Network Integrity Department, said in his contribution, “Most network providers who are blamed for poor reception are indeed not always the culprits. Posts Substandard telephones that have not been approved by the Commission and used by many people are likely to cause problems for networks and also affect the quality of service.

“That’s why we encourage everyone to make sure that the handset you buy is a Commission-approved handset. And we have a list of all the phones that we have homologated on our website for people to look at. It is not only the telephone handsets, but all devices connected to the national network are actually listed on our website.

If a telephone handset is substandard, or if it is counterfeit, it will not work well, and therefore it will introduce noise and sometimes you will blame the network provider. The solution to this is to use approved telephone devices. As part of the regulatory techniques being developed to make calling smooth and life more comfortable for Nigerians, especially with regard to the theft of phones and the rigors associated with purchasing one or more other cards SIM, Wakil said, “Phone theft has become very common. in this country, especially on occasions like weddings, funerals and all those sorts of things.

We are implementing a device management solution that will take care of all kinds. This solution will also support theft and substandard handsets. It will also support phone theft. Once a phone is stolen and reported we can blacklist that phone and once it is blacklisted it will not work on any of the networks no matter which sim card you put. It will not work. And it will discourage phone theft once the solution is in place.

Stopgap strategy

He also revealed another workaround strategy the NCC was working on to make it easier to check balances, load cards and all those short calls on different codes for different networks, saying, “We’re trying to harmonize short calls that are used by service providers on their networks. For example, each of the network providers has different shortcut numbers to call in case of trouble.

Even when you want to top up your credit, you dial a certain shortcut. The balance check is also different for all networks. We want to harmonize that we have a shortcut on all networks to load credit or top up and to check your balance. We’re working with the operators right now and we want to give them a lead time of about a year for them all to work simultaneously, because we can’t just interrupt them like that.

It will also be made public so that people are aware. After that, the old hotkeys will stop working and the harmonized one will be made operational. It is just to make life easy for Nigerians. The Commission also used the interactive forum to allay the fears that many people have about the dangers associated with erecting towers in the vicinity of residences. Some of the licensees said their customers complained about the danger of radiation emitted from the masts.

Radiation fears

In response, Wakil said, “In truth, these telecommunications facilities are designed for people for their use and therefore need to be close to them. The essence of the mast is to hang the antenna. As we do not have high-rise buildings contrary to what applies abroad, masts must be erected in urban areas. You don’t see them as such abroad because they are on their roofs.

“There is no evidence to show that radiation from masts could pose a danger to the lives of people near base stations. There is no cause for alarm. There is no technologically proven evidence that a hazard exists.

Some senior NCC executives delivered communications on the functioning of the Commission, enlightening operators on the modus operandi of bilateral agreements. Among them was Olufunke Damola-Sokunbi, Deputy Director of the Competition Policy and Economic Analysis Department. The consultative forum was hosted by the Area Controller of NCC, Ibadan, Mr. Ekinsola Oladosu.

PA

Three meat plant workers have filed a federal lawsuit accusing 11 of the largest beef and pork producers in the United States of conspiring to drive down wages and benefits.

The lawsuit, filed Friday in federal court in Denver, seeks class-action status and alleges the producers have worked together since at least 2014 to keep workers’ compensation lower than the market would allow, in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

It was presented by two meat plant workers from Iowa and one from Georgia, but seeks to represent hundreds of thousands of others who have worked in jobs ranging from slaughter to production in the 140 collective factories of enterprises. Together, the factories produce about 80% of the red meat sold to American consumers, according to the lawsuit.

The companies are JBS USA Food Company, Cargill Inc., Hormel Foods Corp., American Foods Group LLC, Triumph Foods LLC, Seaboard Foods LLC, National Beef Packing Co. LLC, Iowa Premium LLC, Smithfield Foods Inc., Agri Beef Co. and Perdue Farms Inc., as well as certain subsidiaries.

Cargill has denied any wrongdoing.

“While we cannot comment specifically during the pendency of the litigation, Cargill sets compensation independently to ensure it pays fair and competitive wages to employees at each of the company’s plants,” said company spokesman Daniel Sullivan.

Perdue Farms spokeswoman Andrea Staub declined to comment, saying the company was not discussing the pending lawsuits. Smithfield spokesman Jim Monroe said the company has not had a chance to review the allegations and has not commented at this time. Representatives for the other companies did not immediately return emails and phone messages seeking comment on Wednesday.

Two consulting firms that allegedly helped meat producers exchange compensation information are also named as defendants in the lawsuit, which was brought by lawyers for Hagens Berman.

“Our company got $195 million from the poultry processing industry for the same antitrust behavior. The meat industry sauce ends here,” the law firm’s managing partner said. , Steve Berman, in a trial announcement Wednesday.

The lawsuit alleges the meat producers held secret meetings to discuss wages and communicated about them surreptitiously to avoid having a paper trail of the conversations.

The socio-cultural and political organization Apex Northern, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), said that although the main political parties have candidates from the main regions of the country, the north has never voted one way.

ACF general secretary Murtala Aliyu told the Sunday Telegraph in a phone interview that despite the North never voting in one direction, the regional policy issue did not start today. today.

He, however, said the main problem was “handling the consequences” in the election outcome even if Nigerians decided to vote regionally, adding that in 1979 Obafemi Awolowo opted for UPN, Nnamdi Azikiwe for the NPP and Shehu Shagari for the NPN and Aminu Kano for the PRP, many of them getting votes in their enclaves.

Aliyu said that before former head of state Ibrahim Babangida introduced the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the Republican National Convention (NRC), “it was practically identity politics that played out” .

He said: “It was after Ibrahim Babangida brought together the SDP and the NRC that we started to have two parties that oscillate on both sides, North and South. So it’s not really anything new. But I believe that the electorate will be able to decide whichever way.

“However, the main problem for me is the management of the consequences, but even if it happened (regional politics) like that, what would be the consequences, it happened like that before and nothing happened.”

The ACF secretary also said that the two main political parties, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have a national spread which could make regional voting impossible, adding: “They have governors , senators and House of Representatives members and others across the country. At least I think both parties have a national vision.

“But, again, the elections bring surprises. So, let’s wait and see, but I also think that any regional policy that will be played out will have no consequences. It has always been so. »

Speaking from the perspective of the North, Aliyu said, “In fact, in the North, since independence, it has never voted one way. During the NPN, when the North had ten states, the NPN had five, the other parties combined had five.

“So the north never voted one way. So once the party is nationalist, they will have their votes all over the country. »

A letter to Kansas voters suggests that removing state Supreme Court justices in Tuesday’s election would protect abortion access, as abortion rights advocates want to keep them on the bench.

The sender’s return address indicates that it is VMCF Inc., of Lenexa, a suburb of Kansas City. For a brief period in October, it was the legal name of a charitable foundation headed by the owner of a major Republican direct mail company, according to state records.

One side says “Kansas pushed back” on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in late June to overturn Roe v. Wade. In August, voters decisively rejected a proposed anti-abortion amendment to the Kansas Constitution. The mailer includes the logo on the pro-amendment side with a red “X” across it.

The opposite side of the sender urges no vote Tuesday on retaining state Supreme Court justices. Six of the seven justices are on the ballot for yes or no votes on whether they will remain on the bench for another six years.

“LET THEM HEAR YOU AGAIN!” the sender says under a larger “NO!”

Abortion rights groups want to keep the judges, and Kansans for Life, the state’s most influential anti-abortion group, wants to oust five of the six. In 2019, the court ruled that abortion access is a “fundamental” right under the Kansas Constitution, prompting GOP lawmakers to push the proposed anti-abortion amendment.

“It’s clearly designed to misinform,” said state Rep. Stephanie Clayton, a Kansas City-area Democrat, whose daughter received a letter.

A search of state documents online for VMCF turned up documents for the nonprofit Van Meteren Charitable Foundation Inc. and showed it went from longest name to shortest name on October 24 and back on October 31.

Its 2021 annual report listed the same address as the return address on the sender. Its sole leader was Kristian Van Meteren, owner of the direct mail company The Singularis Group, also in the Kansas City area. He did not immediately respond to phone messages Friday seeking comment.

PA

Colton Herta believes so strongly that Andretti Autosport can return to the top of IndyCar that he announced a four-year extension on Tuesday until 2027 before Roger Penske or Chip Ganassi even have a chance to sign the American .

Herta’s current contract with Andretti runs until next season, and with his Formula 1 aspirations temporarily on hold, Herta believes he can win in IndyCar with Michael Andretti.

Andretti Autosport last won the IndyCar championship in 2012 and last won the Indianapolis 500 in 2016 with Alexander Rossi. With Rossi now heading to McLaren next year, Herta entering his fifth season in IndyCar will be Andretti’s most veteran production driver.

“I see what’s going on in the background, I see the momentum and there’s a lot of investment in the team,” Herta said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “I believe in the future. It didn’t matter what anyone else had to say. I believe in Andretti’s leadership.

The investment comes from a concurrent four-year extension announced with sponsor Gainbridge, a loyal partner of Andretti. And the belief could come from the hope that a path to F1 could still be in play for Herta with Andretti.

“Racing in F1 is still one of my goals. I still think it’s a possibility. But it won’t happen next year, obviously,” Herta told the AP. “But in the next few years? “That may still be a possibility. There’s no clear path for me for next year. Does that mean Michael couldn’t get a team for 24? A lot of things can happen. »

Thus ends the roller coaster year for Herta, 22, who at times looked set to become the first American driver on the F1 grid since Rossi in 2015. His chance was scuttled by the FIA, the governing body of F1, which would not grant Herta the super license required to participate in the World Series.

He has therefore signed an IndyCar renewal with Andretti Autosport, as Michael Andretti tries to bring two-car Andretti Global into the current 10-team F1 grid. Andretti, with help in part from Gainbridge, had hoped to convince the FIA ​​to expand the grid and planned to bring Herta with him.

But existing F1 teams are not in favor of network expansion and wealth redistribution, and although Herta has been free to leave Andretti for an F1 opportunity under his existing contract, the lack of Super License has currently relegated him to IndyCar.

He said the extension could move him to F1 with Andretti if Andretti lands a team, but leaving the Andretti IndyCar organization for an F1 opportunity will be more complicated going forward.

“I’ll never be disappointed driving IndyCar. I’m perfectly happy driving IndyCar,” Herta said. never had a chance in F1.”

From an IndyCar perspective, the signing is huge: Chip Ganassi Racing’s No. 10 is set to open up when Alex Palou moves to McLaren in 2024, defending Series champion Will Power enters a contract year on the No. 12 with Team Penske, and six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon will be 43 next season – his 21st year with Ganassi.

“I have a lot of confidence and integrity where I am,” Herta told the AP. “And a lot of money is good, but you also make a lot of money by winning a lot of races.”

There’s been a ton of F1 hype surrounding Herta, who this year signed a test contract with McLaren. But Herta currently lacks the points required to obtain the compulsory F1 licence, largely because IndyCar is undervalued in the ranking system. The FIA ​​does not govern IndyCar, or NASCAR for that matter, and essentially classifies the two as mid-series.

Red Bull had asked Herta, a seven-race winner who in 2019 became IndyCar’s youngest winner days before his 19th birthday, for a super license waiver. If the FIA ​​had not refused, Red Bull had hoped to put Herta in its AlphaTauri junior team next season.

The lack of a license has essentially closed the door to F1 for Herta for now, and the Californian didn’t even attend the United States Grand Prix last week in Austin, Texas.

Herta was a popular figure at the Miami Grand Prix in May when he attended as a guest of McLaren, asked to sit in the F1 car and asked for a steering wheel diagram. When Herta showed up two months later for a McLaren F1 test in full preparation he wowed on the track, word spread and rival teams developed a sudden interest in landing the American.

“I think IndyCar should probably be re-evaluated in the super license system,” Herta told the AP. “I think IndyCar is undervalued. I understand we’re not an FIA championship, we don’t bring money or anything like that to the FIA, so I guess it makes more sense than they draw attention to their championships.

“But I think to be fair, if you’re claiming to be the best championship in the world with the best drivers, you should probably give everyone a fair chance.”

Herta said he was out of McLaren’s rotation when he started speaking with AlphaTauri.

There is also less urgency around Herta now that Williams plans to promote F2 driver Logan Sargeant from Florida to F1 next year if the 21-year-old gets his super license by the end of the season. It would give Williams the win by marking the newest American driver in F1’s fastest growing market.

Herta and Sargeant grew up racing karting against each other and both dabbled in Europe as teenagers, but Herta returned to America and Indy Lights when finances became tight. The wealthier Sargeant was able to stay the course in Europe.

“I was always about a year ahead of him, but we had similar paths,” Herta said. “I’m really happy to see this happen for him and it’s so cool to see an American succeed.”

Emmanuel Onani, Abuja

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, citizens were urged to support military, intelligence and security agencies, with a view to ensuring successful, free and credible elections.

Pioneer Commander of the Nigerian Army School of Legal Studies, Brig-Gen. Godwin Anyalemechi (rtd), along with a retired State Director of State Services (DSS), Mr Mike Ejiofor, gave the accusation in separate telephone interviews with New Telegraph

While insisting that citizen support for security agencies was an obligation, retired military and intelligence officers encouraged the public to provide actionable and timely information to relevant security agents, in order to deprive troublemakers of freedom of action before, during and after the elections.

“I’m going to start like this: security is everyone’s job, everyone’s obligation, despite the fact that there are government agencies in charge, who are supposed to provide it, when you talk about the military, police, DSS and other civilian agencies,” Anyalemechi said.

According to him: “But, the citizens of the country are supposed to support these established agencies, to ensure security. The security you are talking about, more specifically, is them (the citizens).

“They are the ones hurting themselves. When you cause chaos, there will be food insecurity. There will be deprivation of personal liberty. Security is the most important function of government.

“The Nigerian public is expected to participate in the provision of security because security is for its own good.”

For his part, Ejiofor said, “Without the involvement and support of citizens, there is no way for security agencies to (operate). And it’s not just them alerting them or giving them information.

“The biggest challenge we have now, in the next election, which I think citizens need to be involved in, is vote buying. That’s the biggest challenge we face.

“So for us to have a credible election, citizens must be encouraged to vote according to their conscience and collect the money from them. Because if you don’t get the money back from them, they think you won’t vote for them. Collect the money from them and vote according to your conscience. This is the only way to have credible elections.

“Or, if you don’t want to collect, report this event to the security agencies. But I doubt that the security agencies can do anything in these circumstances.

“But by the time we arrest one or two people, thanks to information provided by members of the public, it will discourage other people from buying votes.”

A train traveling at 66mph crashed into farm machinery because a tractor was driven over a level crossing without permission, an inquest has found.

The train driver suffered minor injuries and damage was done to the train and 780 yards of track due to the collision in Cambridgeshire at 9am on August 19 last year, according to a report from the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB).

The accident at the Kisby level crossing between Whittlesey and March involved a freight train operated by GB Railfreight carrying containers to the port of Felixstowe, Suffolk, and agricultural machinery being towed by a tractor.

When the train driver realized that the tractor was about to cross the tracks, he activated the emergency brake.

He then left his seat intending to take refuge in a hallway but when the accident occurred he was still in the back of the driver’s cab and was showered with debris as the windows of the locomotive were broken.

The locomotive and a wagon derailed.

The machine was destroyed but the driver of the tractor was not injured.

Network Rail had previously placed Kisby in one of its highest risk categories due to frequent use and glare from the sun.

Crossing users are required to telephone a railway flagman who will grant permission to cross if there is sufficient time depending on the location of approaching trains.

The RAIB said the crash happened because the tractor driver had not been briefed on the procedure by his employer and believed he was safe to cross while looking for trains.

Investigators found that Network Rail “did not effectively manage the safe use of Kisby”.

He made safety recommendations to the public company and the Health and Safety Executive and wrote to several organizations representing farmers asking them to remind their members of the importance of crossing procedures.

A Melbourne-based immigration lawyer has said Novak Djokovic will likely be successful if he applies for a visa to enter Australia for the tennis season opener next year despite his high-profile deportation in January.

This could be as simple as writing to the Australian Border Force, explaining their exceptional circumstances and asking for any re-entry bans to be lifted.

The 21-time Grand Slam singles champion was barred from defending his Australian Open title this year after a tumultuous 10-day legal saga over his COVID-19 vaccination status that resulted in the dismissal of his visa on the eve of the tournament.

This meant he could face a debarment period of up to three years, but Australian Border Force officials said these could be waived in certain circumstances – and each case would be assessed accordingly. of its merits.

And Djokovic has a case. He arrived at Melbourne airport as the world’s top-ranked tennis player on a visa he had obtained online and what he believed to be a valid medical exemption from the country’s strict laws for non-travellers. vaccinated, as it has been approved by Tennis Australia and the state government of Victoria, which hosts the tournament.

Confusion reigned, generating global headlines. It turned out that this medical exemption allowed him to enter the tournament, which required all players, fans and officials to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, but not necessarily to enter the country. He was rejected by the Australian Border Force.

Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke eventually used discretionary powers to cancel Djokovic’s visa on character grounds, saying he was a “talisman of an anti-vaccine sentiment community”.

Immigration lawyer Kon-ming Tsai said he believed it would be “in Australia’s interest” to allow Djokovic to play in the 2023 tournament.

“There’s no risk factor here in letting him come back,” Tsai said in a Thursday phone interview with The Associated Press. “He is not going to create a problem for the community. He is one of the best tennis players in the world and will be able to attract many foreign visitors.

Djokovic has not officially stated whether he will apply for a visa to Australia, with his media group in Belgrade saying he has no information so far regarding the plans of the nine-time Australian Open winner regarding the tournament from January 16 to 29.

Australia changed governments and modified its border rules this year and, as of July 6, inbound travelers no longer have to provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccination. This removes a major barrier of entry for Djokovic.

The 35-year-old Serbian star, who recently won tournaments in Kazakhstan and Israel, can now ask new Immigration Minister Andrew Giles to reconsider his visa status.

In his favor, Djokovic left Australia quickly after his visa was revoked, he did not publicly criticize the Australian authorities and will only apply for a temporary visa.

The first step in the process is to make an official visa application, beginning a two-step procedure.

As the Home Office website explains, applicants in Djokovic’s situation must explain in writing to the Australian Border Force why the debarment period should be waived – “you must show us that there is compassionate or compelling circumstances to lift your re-entry ban and grant you the visa.”

The ABF does not comment on individual cases as a matter of principle.

A review of Djokovic’s visa saga has led Tennis Australia to outsource visa applications for players and their entourages to a firm specializing in immigration matters.

That company, Absolute Immigration, was asked to comment on Djokovic’s status but did not immediately respond.

At the launch of the 2023 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on Wednesday, tournament director Craig Tiley said Tennis Australia wanted to welcome Djokovic back but could not give him any official support as he lobbied the Australian government.

“It’s not an issue that we can pressure. It’s an issue that definitely stays between the two of them,” Tiley said, referring to Djokovic and the Australian government.

Tiley has been heavily criticized for his role in the confusion that led to Djokovic being held in an immigration hotel.

After meeting him in London last month, Tiley said he thought Djokovic had no bitterness about the saga.

“He said he obviously would like to come back to Australia, but he knows it will be an ultimate decision for the federal government and he accepts that,” said Tiley, who is also the chief executive of Tennis Australia. “If you notice, he plays a lot of tennis at the end of the year in anticipation and hopes his candidacy will be successful. But it depends on him.

If Djokovic goes that route, Malaysian-born Tsai said his decade-long experience dealing with Australian immigration laws made him think it would likely result in a decision in Djokovic’s favour.

“At the end of the day, it’s in Australia’s interest to lift the ban and bring Djokovic back,” Tsai said.
