Cameroonian leader snubbed Obasanjo over Bakassi – Duke

Former Governor of Cross Rivers State, Donald Duke, on Monday, narrated the high-powered underground intrigues that characterised the events leading to the ceding of Bakassi Peninsular to Republic of Cameroon, pursuant to the judgment of International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Duke, who spoke in Lagos at a special lecture to commemorate the 60th birthday of retired judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Charles Archibong, recalled that the Cameroonian President, Paul Biya, snubbed former President Olusegun Obasanjo at Yaounde's Airport over an earlier clash between him and former Nigeria's Military Head of State, late General Sani Abacha.

The lecture was with the theme: "The Judgement of the ICJ on Sovereignty Over Bakassi: Aftermath, Lessons and the Legal Option of Self-determination."

The former governor stressed that one thing led to the other and the out-of-court settlement failed, while Nigeria's legal team assured then that the country had a good case before the ICJ.

He added: "You see, the issue of Bakassi is interesting. There was the legal aspect and there was the international politics aspect of it. Behind the scene, a lot of meetings took place and in a bid to attend one of those meetings, we arrived at the airport in Cameroon with the then Nigeria's President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and at the airport, President Biya was there seeing of another leader, but he snubbed us.

"He (Biya) left us at the airport for close to two to three hours and we were there at the airport with embassy staff not knowing what to do. Grudgingly, he met with us and lectured us on Bakkasi. We later found out that he was reacting to an earlier confrontation between him and General Abacha over Bakassi," Duke narrated.

Guest lecturer and Head of Department of Public and International Law at the University of Calabar, Dr. Eni Aja Alobo, stressed that it was unfortunate that Nigeria was not focusing on the catalogue of inexplicable and unjustifiable harassment, intimidation and extra-judicial killings of Nigerians living in Bakassi by the Cameroonian gendarmes.

Specifically, Alobo lamented that President Goodluck Jonathan ought to have utilised the opportunity of addressing the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to draw the attention of the world to the inhuman treatment being meted to Nigerians by the Cameroonian security agencies.

According to the university don, "The issue which has thus become imperative to address is how to save the people of Bakkasi from the negative implications and consequences of the ICJ's decision and protect them from the brutal/brutish proclivity of the Cameroon Government."

Another Herakle farm or good news for Africa: Oyo state in Nigeria, Canadian firm sign $1.3bn (about 4 times Herakle farms in value) pact on mechanised agric

Oyo, Canadian firm sign $1.3bn pact on mechanised agric

Filed under: Company News |

The Oyo State government has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) involving a sum of $1.3 billion with a Canadian agricultural company for the development of its agricultural sector.


The Canadian firm is committing $1.3 billion towards the development of agriculture in the state, which include the production of tomatoes, vegetables, fruits, chicken as well as wind solar system.


The project would commence in the next three months, while full scale production would commence in the next two years.


Governor Abiola Ajimobi, at the signing ceremony in Ibadan, described the MoU as a landmark achievement of his administration in the area of agriculture, stressing that it was the outcome of his various investment trips abroad.


He said that the investment would not only enhance food security but also provide job opportunity for the teeming unemployed youth in the state.


The governor also said that the investment would be second to none in the annals of agriculture in Africa, pointing out that it would benefit the people of Oyo and all its adjoining states as well as Canada.


"The MoU is a milestone; it is a legacy that will stand the test of time; it will be second to none in terms of the opportunities available in agriculture,'' he said.


Ajimobi commended the firm, SGNTT, for its commitment to the development of agriculture and for its readiness to invest in the state's agricultural sector.


In his remarks, the leader of the team, Edward Ndububa, explained that the project would be located in Itesiwaju and Afijio local government areas of the state, expressing his group's intention to partner the state government in the area of large scale mechanised agriculture.


He said that there had been some understanding between his group and the state government on the need for them to work together for the economic development of the state.

Re: [MTC Global] Corruption undermining higher education in India

Education is the prime element for social reforms.  Corruption cannot be done away with a group of people, with or without political backing. So first let us visualize a corruption free education system, the products coming out will then have a  cause for keeping away from corruption. But regretfully today, appointments can be obtained with out the necessary qualifications and expertise; students can get admission even of they don't qualify for the same, they can appear ?? and also pass the exams!!!.. let us shut down(today in USA) corruption in all Educational Institutes.

Corruption undermining higher education in India
By M Anandakrishnan [The writer is chairman, Board of Governors of IIT Kanpur]
 
People of India are deeply concerned about the form and extent of corruption in almost all walks of life. What is particularly alarming is the conspicuous corruption in higher education undermining the foundations of society. It has become so pervasive, making it difficult to assess the root causes.
The general perception, however, is that the increasing degree of political interference in higher education is a dominant factor. It occurs in many insidious forms, making it appear almost legitimate.
For instance, the state legislations on appointment of Vice-chancellors (V-C). In a few states, the chancellor, who is generally the governor, is required to consult the state government in selecting the name of a person from the panel submitted by the search committee. It is an open secret in some states that the ministers demand from the persons in the panel to shell out a few crores to be appointed as V-C. Currently, in one state the amount ranges from Rs 5 crore for smaller universities to Rs 50 crore for large universities with hundreds of affiliated colleges.
V-C aspirants accept the bait as the amount could later be collected from the affiliated colleges and from the various appointments and promotions in the university. It is sad that in several instances the chancellor/governor is also known to indulge in such collections through intermediaries. It is not difficult to see the spiralling effect of such a practice deeply penetrating every level of the academia.
For aided colleges, the state education ministers delay the sanction of faculty positions against existing vacancies till the college managements pay up the amount on the basis of number of vacancies. The logic is the managements should collect the amount from the selected teachers. The teacher in turn would engage in all forms of illicit practices to recoup the sum from the students and others. This is one reason for many competent persons not choosing to apply to some of the aided colleges.
Likewise, stories about demands made on PhD scholars by research guides sound like fiction but, unfortunately, are too widespread to be ignored. Besides demanding sexual favours, thesis supervisors and examiners extract sizeable sums from the helpless students before final approval.
Another cause for concern is the corruption in granting approval for new institutions. Many worthless institutions had obtained the status of deemed universities through bribing. So is the case with technical institutions.
Of late, the establishment of private universities under state legislatures has become a lucrative venue for huge illicit collections in some states. Many such universities tend to resist any form of regulation to maintain quality and standards of academic programmes. Hopefully, the proposed mandatory accreditation process will help raise the credibility of academic programmes of such institutions.
These are matters that need urgent attention at a time when the higher education system is poised for a steep growth. Fortunately, such undesirable practices are confined only to a few states in the country, though the number of institutions and persons affected are significantly large. In general, the institutions under the purview of the Central government are largely, though not entirely, free from such atrocious practices. Examples of several Central, state and private institutions which have demonstrated their ability to function unaffected in such a vicious environment can be emulated by others.
Fortunately, the regulatory authorities concerned with higher education at the Central level and in some of the progressive states are conscious of the prevailing malady and hopefully some of their initiatives will bear fruit.

RE:Apple Passes Coca-Cola as Most Valuable Brand

A New York Times Report.

Apple Passes Coca-Cola as Most Valuable Brand

APPLE is the new most valuable brand in the world, according to a closely followed annual report.
 
(A scene from a commercial for the iPhone 5 by Apple, a brand valued at $98.3 billion by Interbrand, a consulting company. ) 

 

The report, to be released on Monday, is from Interbrand, a corporate identity and brand consulting company owned by the Omnicom Group that has been compiling what it calls the Best Global Brands report since 2000. The previous No. 1 brand, Coca-Cola, fell to No. 3.
Not only has Apple replaced Coca-Cola as first among the 100 most valuable brands based on criteria that include financial performance, this is the first time that the soft drink known for slogans like "It's the real thing" has not been No. 1.
Apple's arrival in the top spot was perhaps "a matter of time," Jez Frampton, global chief executive at Interbrand, said in a recent interview. Apple was No. 2 last year, climbing from No. 8 in the 2011 report.
"What is it they say, 'Long live the king'?" Mr. Frampton asked. "This year, the king is Apple."
The 2013 report begins: "Every so often, a company changes our lives, not just with its products, but with its ethos. This is why, following Coca-Cola's 13-year run at the top of Best Global Brands, Interbrand has a new No. 1 — Apple."
The report estimates the value of the Apple brand at $98.3 billion, up 28 percent from the 2012 report. The value of the Coca-Cola brand also rose, by 2 percent to $79.2 billion, but that was not sufficient to give Coca-Cola a 14th year as Interbrand's most valuable brand.
Although "Coca-Cola is an efficient, outstanding brand marketer, no doubt about it," Mr. Frampton said, Apple and other leading technology brands have become "very much the poster child of the marketing community."
That is underscored by the brand in second place in the new report: Google, which rose from fourth place last year. In fact, of the top 10 Best Global Brands for 2013, five are in technology: Apple; Google; Microsoft, No. 5, unchanged from last year; Samsung, 8, compared with 9 last year; and Intel, 9, compared with 8 last year.
Samsung's ascent followed the company's adoption of a new brand strategy called the Brand Ideal, which includes "a greater focus on social purpose," Sue Shim, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Samsung, said by e-mail. That reflected research indicating American consumers would switch brands to "one that was associated with improving people's lives," she added.
I.B.M. — No. 4 in 2013, down a notch from 2012 — is ranked as a business services brand. Otherwise, technology would account for six of the top 10.
"Brands like Apple and Google and Samsung are changing our behavior: how we buy, how we communicate with each other, even whether we speak with each other," Mr. Frampton said. "They have literally changed the way we live our lives."
Among other transformative technology brands that performed well in the new report was Facebook, which climbed to 52 from 69 last year, its first year on the list.
However, not all technology brands fared well. BlackBerry, which tumbled last year to 93 from 56 in 2011, has disappeared from the list. And Nokia, which dropped to 19 from 14 in 2011, finished this year in 57th place — "the biggest faller" among the 100, Mr. Frampton said.
Among nontechnology brands, a notable addition to the list was Chevrolet, at 89, the first General Motors brand to rank among the Best Global Brands.
"It feels good to hit the list for the first time," Alan Batey, global head of Chevrolet at G.M., said in a telephone interview. "It's a great first step, but we've got a long way to go. There are a lot of big brands in front of us."
The milestone reflects how General Motors has been "making a conscious effort to globalize Chevrolet," Mr. Batey said, selling the brand in 140 countries in ads that play up attributes like "value for money and designs that move hearts and minds."
Commonwealth, the creative agency for Chevrolet, "played a key role" in helping the brand make the list, he added. Commonwealth is part of the McCann Worldgroup division of the Interpublic Group of Companies.
Last year, when Coca-Cola finished atop the Best Global Brands list for the 13th consecutive time, an executive at the Coca-Cola Company acknowledged the streak but noted that "nothing lasts forever."
A year later, the executive, Joseph V. Tripodi, executive vice president and chief marketing and commercial leadership officer, had this reaction: "Of course, we would like to remain on top of the list forever. That said, we are honored to continue to be included among such an esteemed group of global brands, and we congratulate Apple and Google, both valued partners of ours."
"We've seen the value of technology brands rise as they create new ways for people to stay connected virtually," Mr. Tripodi said by e-mail. "We understand this, as the lasting power of our brand is built on the social moment of sharing a Coca-Cola with friends and family."
"Creating these simple moments and delivering on our brand promise each and every day remains our focus," he added, "as we continue to grow the value of brand Coca-Cola for decades to come."
If it is consolation, Coca-Cola remains far ahead of Apple and Google in likes on Facebook fan pages. Coca-Cola has 73.2 million, compared with 9.8 million for Apple and 15.1 million for Google.

The amt of Data, Information & Knowledge that came into the world in last 40 years is millions of times what came 5000 years prior to 1970. So also the mind boggling Technologies & Innovations. This trend will continue & has tumbled workplaces, organization structures, systems, markets, technologies, people"s mindsets & has gone beyond the tools & methods which are familiar to Professionals, GLOBALLY.

We need new approaches, tools, solutions & techniques, not just technologies. Queries are welcome.
