Corporate Affairs Commission to Strike Off 100,000 Companies for Failing to File Annual Returns

In a recent development aimed at streamlining corporate compliance and curbing financial misconduct, the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has announced its intention to strike off 100,000 companies that have failed to file their annual returns over the past decade.

 

Speaking at a training workshop on the use of the Beneficial Ownership Register (BOR) in Lagos, CAC’s Registrar-General/CEO, Alhaji Garba Abubakar, said that notices of striking off would be sent to the affected companies as per section 692 of the CAMA 2020, before embarking on action.He however noted that the companies can be relisted upon the payment of outstanding debts and an order of a court, as provided by law.

 

Alhaji Abubakar highlighted the importance of timely payment of annual returns to avoid being struck off and advised companies to prioritize compliance to maintain their active status.

 

The CAC has developed Africa’s first BOR with World Bank support and assistance, to curb corruption, money laundering, and terrorism financing.

 

Abubakar urged stakeholders, including civil society organizations, legal practitioners, and journalists to utilize the BOR in discharging their responsibilities. The workshop also featured presentations from the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCUML), the Nigeria Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

 

This significant move by the Corporate Affairs Commission represents a crucial step towards promoting corporate accountability and ensuring a transparent business environment in Nigeria.

Are You a Science Student Behavioural and Addiction Control Initiate BACI

This Monday, allow us bring to you a snippet of Olamide-badoo’ lyrics in “Science Student”

The track by Olamide Gbenga Adedeji, known professionally as Olamide is a Nigerian hip hop recording artist who dropped the single in 2018 with a most eccentric visual “Science Student – Kosewe, kosegbo, kosewe, kosegbo – Kosewe, kosegbo, kosewe, kosegbo – Won ti po’mi gutter po, oju ti dirty – Won ti po chemical po, awon mo science students” which completely targets the extent drugs have been abused on and by the Streets absolutely captures the thematic area Mr Jubril Adekunle Kosoko focuses on; focusing on the ills, extremes and consequences of drug addiction and rehabilitation of addicted lots.

 

Mr Kosoko who used to be an ex cultist and drug addict sees the need to transform the minds of drug addicts in the society. Addiction which remains a common yet widely misunderstood health condition with prevailing stigma that prevents affected individuals from seeking information and support saw Mr Kosoko establishing Behavioural and Addiction Control Initiative (BACI) in 2018.

 

According to WHO – Psychoactive drugs are substances that, when taken in or administered into one’s system, affect mental processes, e.g. perception, consciousness, cognition or mood and emotions. According to this Health Organization, 35 million people are estimated to be suffering from drug use disorders – 0.5 million deaths attributable to illicit drug use annually while about a hundred and eighty thousands deaths were directly linked to drug use disorders in 2019.

 

As about now, report reveals that BACI over the years has been able to achieve the following:
(a) Rehabilitation and treatment of Ten cultist and drug addicts
(b) Drug Abuse and Cultism campaigns in different secondary schools in Lagos, Ogun and Oyo States
(c) Drug Abuse and Cultism campaigns in communities both in Lagos and Ogun state
(d) Drug Abuse and Cultism campaigns in different churches both in Lagos and Ogun state
(e) Partnership with Center For Youth Studies(CYS) For life skills training program on health and behavioural issues for young persons with disability
(f) Partnership with Stampout Drug Abuse Initiative to educate cultist and drug addicts to mark 2021 International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

 

BACI is working towards a world where drug addicts are rehabilitated and provided with a structured plan that will help them to detox, undergo behavioural therapy, rehabilitation while creating learning avenue for them to acquire new skills that will help them to stay clean and sober

 

Profiling Feet of Grace Foundation

For many years now, they have been demonstrating the power of positive attitude and by all means rocketing towards their goals since its inception in November 2014.

 

Since 2014, The Feet of Grace Foundation has been enriching lives by raising funds to provide both upper and lower extremity prosthesis and wheelchairs to amputees; children under 18 years of age, young ladies and women alike. The Foundation has also been facilitating educational scholarship for needy amputee children while supporting catalytic activities to alleviate poverty for women amputees.

 

By the end of 2019, 41 amputees would have benefited from the support provided by the Foundation. This support includes 42 prosthetic limbs (3 more to be delivered by the end of the month), and two wheelchairs (including one motorized for a double amputee). Three female amputees received seed funds to reestablish their small scale businesses. Six amputees are currently benefiting from educational scholarship with support from partner-organizations.

 

The Feet Of Grace Foundation also supports replacement of the prosthetic limbs for the children as they grow, and repairs/maintenance of all limbs provided as they wear out from daily use.

Well-done Dr Irene Olumese and your entire team.

Profiling The Irede Foundation (TIF) on International Day of Persons with Disability 2019.

Amputation surgery is an orthopedic surgical procedure carried out as the last resort, when limb salvage is not feasible. It is usually associated with social, emotional and psychological disturbances to patients and their families.

 

The incidence of amputation in populations have a base figure of 1-2 amputees per 1000 people for all causes combined. Some causes include: trauma (34%); malignant tumours (14.5%); diabetics (12.3%); infections (5.1%); peripheral artery disease (2.1%); and burns (2.1%).

 

Limb loss is much more common than many people realize, and its numbers, growing by the day. It is sad to know that statistics on the numbers of amputees especially in the developing world are staggering. Globally, there are more than 1 million annual limb amputations -— one every 30 seconds.

 

The estimated prevalence of extremity amputation in Nigeria is 1.6 per 100,000. Reports have revealed that the number is expected to double by 2050, which will by the way be faster than population growth. Meanwhile, limb loss isn’t just costly in the financial sense; it is expensive psychologically too.  According to research, approximately 30% of people with limb loss suffer from depression, anxiety, or both. While the demands on prosthesis in third world countries are often more difficult to meet than in developed countries, one way many organisations have lent their hands(giving their widow’s mite) is in the number of artificial limbs that they have been able to deliver particularly to the less privileged in the society.

 

As a provider of care and prosthesis for those suffering from limb loss, The Irede Foundation understands the peculiarity of this situation and in their own little way have ensured that if not all,  at least,  some are not left behind even in their bid to making children walk,  run and play again.

 

In this light,  The Irede Foundation focuses on working with child amputees to give them hope and help them live a fulfilled life. The foundation is able to achieve this feat by educating the general public, while also encouraging caregivers and empowering indigent children between ages 0-18 with artificial limbs.

 

Activities Include:

 

Limb Empowerment Programme: This program sorts for child amputees whether through congenital limb loss or through trauma, providing them with prosthetic limbs from first contact to age 18. With the goal to extend their voices globally, TIF organizes an annual 2km advocacy walk tagged “Out on a Limb”. The 2019 Walk was themed “ Ensuring Inclusiveness” for children and persons living with a disability. The Walk happens simultaneously across Nigeria.

 

For TIF, year 2019 has been full of eventful and worthy activities and achievements. TIF 2019 Achievements include:

 

* Limb Empowerment Programme: The Irede Foundation has been able to empower 21 child amputees with artificial limbs in the year 2019. Cumulatively, TIF has thus far empowered 99 child amputees with 136 limbs across 17  states in the 6 geo-political zones of the country.

 

* Out On A Limb: Recorded successful walks across 17 states in Nigeria and 7 global locations and recorded over 1,000 people in attendance with an indirect reach of 10,000.

 

*Media Feature:  Few months ago,  The Irede Foundation got featured on the top two Global Media Houses: CNN and BBC

 

In the bid to tell the world the story of Irede,  The CNN Changemaker captured the activities of the Foundation through the eyes and voice of the Executive Director as well as the full coverage  of Prosthetic Production (http://bit.ly/IREDECNN)

 

The BBC African Voices was also able to focus their lenses on people who have become  beneficiaries of the Foundation. http://bit.ly/IREDEBBC

 

The Irede Foundation is not about ready to relent in their service to humanity, TIF wants communities to be on the lookout and refer that child amputee who is in dire need of a prosthesis to The Irede Foundation, for at the Foundation, they  believe goodness has come to every amputee child that steps into their Foundation.

 

Profiling Sparkle Foundation on World Toilet Day

Some go to streams, some visit the bushes. Meanwhile in the process of doing this serious business, some, sadly have been bitten by reptiles.

 

One major outcome of the lack of sanitation facilities is open defecation, which according to some experts results in waterborne diseases outbreak such as dysentery and cholera particularly amongst children.

 

According to Nigeria Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Reports, the country’s sanitation sector is in near epileptic condition. It is with this aim to achieving SDG 6 for cleaner environments together with building some self-reliance, socio-economic development and improved physical wellbeing with great hope for a brighter future, Sparkle Foundation for orphans and the less privileged sees to the provision of health and educational support to the poor particularly in rural communities.

 

Health-concerned foundation that they are known for, Sparkle also encourages family planning for an effective birth control in several communities. Still on family planning, the Foundation partnered with NURHI (Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative) in other to create awareness on Family planning through sensitization. Sparkle Foundation was able to register 217 women for preferred methods; ranging from MICROGYNON, DEPO INJECTION, NORISTERAT INJECTION, IMPLANON and JADELLE. For the effectiveness of this sensitization, Sparkle ensured to distribute about 1,068 male and female condoms.

 

Sparkle has also successfully carried out various health awareness programs for children and youths; from drug abuse to mental health to basic hygiene.

 

At Sparkle Foundation, they believe every child through improved nutritional status and reduced physical ailments can achieve his/her potentials which can help create a viable sound future.

 

OTHER ACHIEVEMENTS INCLUDE:

  • Supported visual abilities of children by providing 150 children with eye drops and prescribed reading glasses to 21 children.

KETURAH SPEAK

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

In the role she plays as a woman humanitarian, NNNGO’s correspondent, Olaife Ilori met with Keturah Shammah, Executive Director – Girls Education Mission International. A development practitioner with immense value in promoting the social, physical and economic development of the female gender. She has a global mandate of eradicating poverty as well as promoting and creating a sustainable impact for the female folks through quality education.

 

For more than a decade now, Keturah has been promoting girls’ rights for quality education such that they reach their potentials. A Leading Advocate for the achievement of the GLOBAL GOALS – AGENDA 2030, Keturah Shammah was involved in the just-concluded SPEAK CAMPAIGN, a Global Campaign launched by CIVICUS – World Alliance for Citizen Participation.     The SPEAK GLOBAL CAMPAIGN helps give a voice to everyone, everywhere. The campaign was created in response to the current global context in which people around the world are facing increasing attacks on their basic freedoms causing many to turn against each other. SPEAK! in one day of global action on September 20th represented the evolution of the Global Day of Citizen Action.  #TogetherWeSpeak

 

Follow the conversation:

——————————

Your Foundation is GIRLS EDUCATION MISSION INTERNATIONAL; could you intimate us more on the kind of work your Foundation is involved in?

Girls Education Mission International helps girls in reaching their potentials. We focus on defending, protecting and promoting the right to education of girls through various activities such as Policy advocacy, supporting girls in school with school fees, sanitary pads, Uniforms and as well provide mentoring and relevant services to build their life skills.

 

I hear you are a SPEAK CHAMPION, was this Campaign your INITIATIVE? And if NO, how did you come by this laudable INITIATIVE?

SPEAK! The campaign was not initiated by our organization, it is a Campaign coordinated by CIVICUS- World Alliance for Citizen Participation. There was a call for application by CIVICUS for SPEAK Champions, we applied and fortunately after review of over 260 applications from 66 countries across the world, our organization was selected as 2019 Champion to mobilize and coordinate the activities of interested organizations to hold SPEAK Event in Nigeria.

 

So are you the only SPEAK CHAMPION in Nigeria?

No! There are Five (5) SPEAK Champions in Nigeria. SPEAK! is a Global Campaign. It cuts across countries of the World. In Nigeria, it is a nationwide Campaign. Our organization mobilized and coordinated the Campaign in the Northern Part of the country alongside other four Champions from the East, West and Southern parts of the Country.

 

How many organizations/individuals was your organization able to mobilize for the SPEAK CAMPAIGN Project in Nigeria?

 

We were able to mobilize over eight (8) organizations that held over 10 events and reached over 200 persons.

 

In response to the current global context, As a SPEAK CHAMPION, do you think the SPEAK CAMPAIGN can indeed speak and address the increasing attacks/issues/challenges faced by people world over?

For me SPEAK! Campaign is the answer to increasing attacks/issues and challenges faced by people world over. This is because, over the years, the female gender is particularly looking for answers to social issues affecting them and seeking opportunities to speak about their unheard challenges. The SPEAK Campaign hence provides such opportunities for them to come together with experts who are in the position to provide solutions to these struggles.

 

As a SPEAK CHAMPION, you created several events for the success of this Campaign and I am well aware that your Organization’s thematic function is on GILRS’ EDUCATION, my question is: do girls really have a future as regards education particularly in this part of the world?

 

The future of girls in line with education is the reality that educated mothers are more likely to send their children to school as uneducated mothers while helping their families break out of the cycle of Poverty in the process especially in developing countries. In order words “Better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labour market, earn higher incomes, have fewer children, marry at a later age, make better health decisions and education for their children should they choose to become mothers”.

 

How sustainable is the future for young girls of this generation as regards the SPEAK CAMPAIGN

The sustainability for young girls of this generation as regards the SPEAK Campaign is guaranteed because; the Campaign aims at solving social issues surrounding the female gender. Through the SPEAK Campaign, issues regarding the girl child is addressed and plan to build girls future are well underway. For instance, our SPEAK Events this year focused on tackling the issues of GENDER VIOLENCE in Nigeria. The event brought together young girls and their male counterparts (boys whom they consider to be one of their distractions) from various locations and backgrounds to discuss issues affecting the girls and provide possible solutions to those problems. The girls were inspired to SPEAK their Possibilities against any form of violence they might face; hence – an advocacy Campaign was known as #IamPossible to be formally launched soon as one of our lined-up plans to sustaining the future of girls in Nigeria.

 

Did you think the CAMPAIGN was able to reach its GOAL?

Of course! Together, we have staged almost 180 events across 55 countries bringing together people across lines of division to have powerful conversations that create real change. And that’s the Goal of SPEAK! Campaign.

 

In what ways do you plan on ensuring the Campaign engages people to continue speaking even after it is well behind us?

 

The #IamPossible Campaign is one of our innovative ways of engaging the girls to SPEAK their possibilities and engage relevant stakeholders to advocate for nurturing and safeguarding the Possibilities of Girls. The SPEAK Campaign T-shirts provided for each participant SPEAKs more than a thousand words. The SPEAK Event Participants have resolved to carry out the Campaign and share an impactful version of the event to not less than 3 persons. May I end with this quote “SPEAK! Is not just a one day Campaign, it is a step by step process to solve several social issues” Frederic Adou, SPEAK Campaign Consultant CIVICUS.

POWEF – WELL BEING

The Global Well-Being Index which was categorized into five elements showcased purpose, social, financial, community, and physical. Reports show that one in six adults worldwide is considered thriving or strong and consistent in at least three of the five elements of well-being, as measured by the inaugural Gallup-Heathway Global Well-Being Index in 2013. The percentage of the elements here in Nigeria is considered low and it is in the light of this POWEF came into the humanitarian scene to encourage and promote quality life in the society.

 

In October 2010, Population Welfare and Empowerment Foundation (POWEF) envisioned a society where everyone, especially the less privileged would be able to enjoy basic health, economic, social and environmental well-being. Its mission which is to promote quality life for women, children, young people and other vulnerable populations through skills development, advocacy engagements, and direct support services are still kicking even to date.

 

Mr. Joseph Obadiora believes that POWEF in its little way can make impacts in the society and bring about positive transformation and against the abrasive act of some individuals towards the less privileged in the society, Mr. Obadiora stated that this act propelled the foundation to stretch hands of assistance and comfort in reducing incidence of preventable disease, promoting life skills and social usefulness of vulnerable children and youth, reducing incidence of criminal and antisocial behavior perpetrated by youth, preventing re-entry of released inmates to correctional institutions, reducing cases of psychoactive drug abuse among vulnerable youth, promoting equal access to life-enhancing opportunities irrespective of gender and determining impacts of social interventions and physical development actions.

 

In view of all these apparent objectives, the Executive Director said that POWEF has been creating awareness on Sexual, Reproductive Health including HIV/AIDS to secondary school adolescents who have had wrong information about sexual and reproductive health. Mr. Joseph Obadiora,
the General  Coordinator said that this initiative has massively boosted the morale of the young adults so much so that that their self-esteem is now so high and many other benefits have been and still currently enjoyed by these young chaps.

 

The YLD Young Leadership Development Programme (YLD) Mr. Obadiora further stated that it is one of the initiatives POWEF is currently handling which provides leadership and life skills training opportunities to students in order to prepare them for leadership roles within their schools and their immediate communities. He added that POWEF has been able to train 112 student leaders, 39 from Oduduwa College in Ife Central Local Government Area and 73 from School of Science in Ife East Local Government Area of Osun State.

 

Mr. Obiora also made mention of other initiatives which are Household Empowerment and Livelihood Project (HELP) to promote the livelihood of less privileged youths and women in the communities and support to some women who are members of Palm-Oil Millers and Traders Cooperative Group in Bolorunduro and Egbejoda communities in Ife South of Nigeria. Positive Learning and Active Citizens Empowerment Project (PLACE) another of POWEF’s initiative is aimed at developing the economic, psychological and social value of prison inmates and drug addicts undergoing rehabilitation. This is to help their sustainable socialization and reintegration into the community and labor market after reentry and so far and for this POWEF has been able to work in Ile-Ife and Ilesha Prisons in Osun State.

 

POWEF is implementing ICT projects to support government efforts aimed at promoting computer literacy in Nigeria To raise the computer knowledge of students and other young populations in order to make them better equipped to cope with the computer-oriented world and to remove the “digital divide” between the privileged and the less privileged. The executive director stated that so far, over 200 young people and adults across the Local Government Areas in Ife zone, Osun State have been trained in Computer Literacy.

 

Regardless of all the impacts made on the communities POWEF still had the urge to do one more which was Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) the Initiative was developed to respond to the need for safe water source, access to sustainable supply of safe water to communities through use of local technology for spring development, hand-dug wells, borehole construction and rehabilitation of existing water schemes.

PLEII – BEST OF HEALTH

In a survey carried out by Healthy People 2010 Final Review, it shared that healthy people provide science-based national goals and objectives and equally adding every available, important and necessary value to the productivity and development of the country.

 

Researchers who also studied health matters presumed deterioration of health in many countries hence advised for a healthy lifestyle but each day, with new struggle further makes it a huge burden to shoulder health-related issues.

 

In Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, Nigeria, Peace and Life Enhancement Initiative International (PLEII) believes that a healthy mind will definitely announce nature endowment and individual’s hope which would in the long run tackle poverty and increase productivity through the provision of peace and positive transformation.

 

Mr. Odukoya Olugbenga Olatunji, PLEII’s Executive Director said he had always lorded humanitarian works and was eventually moved to work for humanity.

 

According to Mr. Odukoya, he said that PLEII in June 2014 was fortunate enough to be one of the 15 CSOs who scaled through the Financial, Technical and Capacity assessment conducted by World Bank and Ogun State Agency for the Control of AIDS, for the HAF2 grants (HIV/AIDS Grants). And still, on this project, PLEII started intervention activities in July 2014 in 5 Local Governments (Ijebu Ode, Ijebu East, Abeokuta North, Abeokuta South and Ado-Odo Ota) in Ogun State, Nigeria.

 

Although extremely passionate on health-related matters, Mr. Odukoya did reveal that gnawing cravings to assist the less privileged in the society mounts, like organizing seminars, talk-shows, symposium and workshops on issues related to health, education, peace and agriculture, organizing adult literacy and vocational training programme, sensitizing and mobilizing women to assert their fundamental human rights, advocating the active participation and involvement of women and the physically challenged people in the development processes in the country and supporting the government and the societies in developing the youths and the children.

 

Recognizing that children and youths are important factors in the society, PLEII began and developed a soft support system for vulnerable children in 2009, a micro identification and enrolment of children.  This project was tagged Support for the Poor and Marginalized Children (SPMC) and was carried out in some communities in Ijebu Ode Local Government and Ijebu North East Local Government with 200 children enrolled.

 

“The SPMC project has been consistent since 2009 and has always replaced our children who have exceeded the age of 18 with new ones,” the executive director said. He highlighted the services rendered to children. They include educational support, health support, nutritional support, psychosocial services, and the right protection.

 

Mr. Odukoya further emphasized that there has been an expansion and increase over the years, that estimates of vulnerable children have moved from 25 in 2010 to 150 in 2013 while PLEII’s has continued to record tremendous growth. Some which are Support to 15 OVC in gaining Admission to a higher institution of learning, vocational skill programmes to vulnerable children through resource center, stabilization of OVCs health through health support services, Promotion of attitude conducive for safer sex practice and increase acceptance for condom use.

DCF’s – DCF, SETTING THE STANDARDS

Children are highly vulnerable, as they are more likely to be victims of abuse, live in institutional care or on the street engaging in hazardous and exploitive labor.

 

Research shows that of about 2 million sex workers in India, 20 percent (400,000) are under age and actively involved in this act. Another research indicates that 143 million children in the developing world have lost one or both parents, including 80 percent of all the children who have lost a parent to AIDS and with the rise of this crisis, more children become orphans every day. In addition to this woe, many children who become orphans because of HIV/AIDS tend to be stigmatized in their communities.

 

According to UNICEF, there are 153 million children across the globe that are described as orphans. These children and others are at risk for poverty, health concerns, neglect, and abuse. Increasingly, numbers of children rise in refugee camps facing unique challenges every day. Malnutrition and diseases are prevalent in these places, transforming them to hell on earth hence creating an unusual environment for a growing child.

 

Another estimate reads that 7 million populations were orphans in 2003, which 1.8 million were affected by HIV/AIDS. Health survey indicates that nine percent of children in Nigeria are orphans and vulnerable children (VOC), with an estimation of 17.5 million out of which 7.3 million are orphaned by HIV/AIDS in 2013. Consequently, high levels of poverty resulting in low resource base and lack of basic credit and employment facilities in most rural communities have jeopardized the realization of the wellbeing of orphans and vulnerable children in Nigeria.

 

In the light of these emerging challenges in the country particularly in Lagos state, Dolly Children Foundation hence envisioned putting smiles on the faces of vulnerable children, targeting orphans and children laborers, rural and urban children, adolescents (in and out of school) with a mission to reach out to them through basic survival skills tagged around food, clothing, education and shelter, thereby enabling them to live impactful lives.

 

Dolly Children Foundation since 2006 never censored themselves to comfort the government’s ignorance or inadequacies, instead, this foundation rose to the challenge by lifting children from the dunghill setting them on the rock of independence and naturally obeying the clarion call of service to humanity.

 

The foundation has begun advancing the cause and welfare of vulnerable children by advocating on issues that can assuage their plight, helping to reduce the growing ratio of vulnerable children in the society in a bid to stop the avenues that expose children to all forms of vulnerability, helping vulnerable children lead productive and meaningful lives by providing basic educational, nutritional, clothing and accommodation needs for them, bridging the gap between society and these children by making them feel loved and cared for, working with individuals and organizations with common interests and as well as beliefs and visions to promote and enhance the welfare of the children.

 

DCF’s achievements include gender-based violence workshop at Magboro Community High School Ogun State, Make a Child Smile project which was held at Obafemi Owode Local Government Primary School Makogi, Ogun state in December 2014, DCF book donation  to Oregun Boys Remand Home in July 2013, Back2School Initiative (B2S) 1 – School Sandals project, 2011, Anglican Primary School, Ajegunle, Ikorodu, Lagos, Back2School Initiative (B2S) 2 – Raincoat project in September 2012 all at Anglican Primary School, Ajegunle, Ikorodu, Lagos.

 

Mrs. Adedolapo, DCF’s programmes’ officer said that efforts to care, support and protect vulnerable children should not be focused only on their immediate survival needs such as education, shelter and clothing, but also on long-term developmental needs that reduce children’s vulnerability such as life skills, child protection, vocational training, food security and household economic strengthening which the foundation has become and will continue to be actively involved in ensuring that these programmes continue to see the light of day she concluded.

The Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGO) is the first generic membership body for civil society organisations in Nigeria that facilitates effective advocacy on issues of poverty and other developmental issues.
