Glo Festival of Joy Winners Emerge in Abuja



Globacom has continued spreading joy to its subscribers across the country as it presented prizes to another set of winners of its Festival of Joy promotion in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

While the winners were all ecstatic about their prizes, the day belonged to  42-year-old automobile engineer, Mr. Adeosun Adedayo, who drove home a brand-new Kia car.

He said Glo had fulfilled his dream of owning a brand-new car. “I never had a premonition of this coming at this time, even though I opted to participate in the promo. Dr. Mike Adenuga and Globacom have proven to be real ‘talk and do masters’ who have changed my life. Nothing compares to a brand-new car”, he stated. Mr. Adedayo said the news was too good to be believed initially and that it was only after he confirmed the authenticity of the calls from Glo informing him of the car prize that he shouted in delight.

One of the winners of the sewing machines was Mr. Aruwa Samuel, who is a police officer with the FCT Police Command. He described the sewing machine as an appropriate gift for his wife, a fashion designer who had only one machine and had always designed to have a second one. He thanked Globacom for making it possible for him to win the prize.

Other winners equally expressed their appreciation to Glo. One of the rechargeable fan winners, Tamar Yahaya, an Entrepreneur from Kaduna, declared: “Globacom has solved the problem of coping with heat, especially at night when I desire sound sleep and there is poor supply of power. Now, sleep can be fun again for me, she affirmed.

Globacom’s Regional Manager for Abuja and Nasarawa, Kemi Kaka, who spoke at the event said that the company had always touched the lives of its subscribers through unique promos that gave them opportunities to win life-changing prizes.

“Two days ago, we began presenting prizes to winners of Festival of Joy promotion. The first house winner, Ibrahim Akindele, who is a student of Ekiti State University, took possession of a three-bedroom house in Ibadan. Just yesterday, several subscribers who also emerged winners in the Ibadan area also went home with their prizes including a brand new car, power generators, sewing machines and rechargeable fans”, he disclosed. Kaka informed the audience that the grand prize of a three-bedroom house was still available to be won in Abuja, along with other prizes such as power generators, sewing machines, and rechargeable fans.

He, therefore, called on Glo subscribers to dial *611# to participate in the Festival of Joy promo.  “Subscribers are required to recharge with N500 weekly to stand a chance to win the rechargeable fans, N2,500 monthly recharge for the Sewing Machine, N5,000 monthly recharge for the generator, and N10,000 monthly recharge for the car. “Those subscribers who have their eyes set on winning the grand prizes of 3-bedroom houses, have to make data subscription(s) of at least N20,000 during the promo period”, he explained.

Ban on Sales, Consumption of Sachet Alcoholic Drinks Still in Force, Says NAFDAC



Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Prof. Moji Adeyeye, has reaffirmed that the ban on the sale and consumption of sachet alcoholic beverages in the country is still in force.

Adeyeye announced this on Wednesday during a press briefing in Lagos.

She said: “The ban on sachet alcohol is a ministerial directive and the ban still remains until the ministers respond. The meeting last week Thursday is a continuation of the discussion.

“The outcome of the meeting is that the ministers should write a memo to the Speaker (of Reps) and the House (of Reps), and the Representative of the Speaker, Prof Jake Dan-Azumi then said we should continue the discussion after the recess of the House members in July. So, the discussion continues.”

The Deputy Spokesman for the House of Representatives, Philip Agbese, disclosed last Friday that the House and NAFDAC resolved to lift the ban on the sale and consumption of sachet alcoholic beverages.

Agbese said the resolution to temporarily lift the ban was reached after a meeting between the House Committee and NAFDAC officials.

He said the lifting of the ban would end when the economy fully recovers from its current strain.

On February 1, 2024, NAFDAC commenced the enforcement of the ban on the importation, manufacture, distribution, sale and use of alcoholic beverages in sachets, PET, and glass bottles of 200ml and below.

The NAFDAC DG said the decision was based on the recommendation of a high-powered committee of the Federal Ministry of Health, NAFDAC, Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, and the industry represented by the Association of Food, Beverages and Tobacco Employers, Distillers and Blenders Association of Nigeria, in December 2018.

However, the move to enforce the ban has generated repeated protests by distillers and labour unions, who said the ban would cost 500,000 workers their jobs, and ruin N800bn investments.

Meanwhile, medical experts warned that lifting the ban on alcoholic beverages will lead to acute health complications, increased road traffic accidents, increased risk of abuse of alcohol, liver problems, heart-related problems, and cancers, among others.

Court Denies Suspended DCP Abba Kyari Bail



Justice Emeka Nwite of the Abuja Federal High Court has denied suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, bail.

In his ruling, the judge held that Kyari’s bail is at the discretion of the court in line with section 161 (2) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.

The judge ruled that Kyari had not shown any evidence to warrant the court granting him bail.

On May 22, the judge had granted the former boss of the Intelligence Response Team, IRT, temporary two-week bail to bury his mother.

However, the two weeks were extended by a week upon an application filed by Mr. Kyari for an extension of the bail.

On June 1, Kyari perfected the bail conditions and was released the same day.

At today’s proceedings, Justice Emeka Nwite refused to extend his earlier order but granted accelerated hearing in the case.

Kyari was detained following his arrest on February 14, 2022, by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for alleged involvement with an international drug cartel.

He, along with four members of the Police Intelligence Response Team—Sunday Ubia, Bawa James, Simon Agirigba, and John Nuhu—was arraigned on March 7, 2022.

Two suspected drug traffickers, Chibunna Umeibe and Emeka Ezenwanne, who were arrested at Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu, were also charged.

While Kyari and the IRT members pleaded not guilty, Umeibe and Ezenwanne pleaded guilty and were convicted.
