The Director General of the Voice of Nigeria, VON, Alhaji Jibrin Ndace, has said that the Federal Government will soon unveil the National Values Charter.
He stated this in a message delivered on behalf of the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris Malagi, at the 2024 Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Press Week in Niger State.
Ndace said: “Soon the Federal Government will unveil comprehensive details of the National Values Charter, which will be premised on the principles that the government, as represented by elected representatives, must provide certain basic needs for its citizens and live by example to justify a firm adherence to a social contract from the citizens.”
According to him, the National Values Charter will contain “seven core promises” of the Nigerian state to the citizens and another “seven commitments” of the citizens towards their country.
He divulged the plans while commenting on the recent controversy triggered by the relocation of some units of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, from Abuja to Lagos State.
He assured that the move by the Federal Government has no political undertones but is part of a broader strategy to enhance operational efficiency, streamline processes, and ensure a responsive financial system for the country, as well as reduce operational costs.
Bologna recovers and folds Sassuolo
At the Dall’Ara Stadium, Bologna beats Sassuolo 4-2 in a comeback in the derby of Emilia on the 23rd day of Serie A and momentarily joins Atalanta in fourth place in the standings.
After the first few minutes of study, on 13’ Sassuolo takes the lead: Skorupski misses a pass to the defense, Thorstvedt takes advantage and intercepts and scores from a few steps. On 20’ Urbanski for Zirkzee who, disturbed by Doig, sends wide. On 22’ again the Dutchman who with his left-footed shot misses the target due to a deflection by Viti.
But on 24’ Zirkzee equalizes with a volley on Urbanski’s shot and this time Viti’s deflection è decisive. At 34’ neroverdi still ahead: Volpato from the limit guesses the seven, Skorupski canò do nothing. At 41’ Calafiori exchanges with Zirkzee and tries a shot, rejected by Viti.
Resume. On 49’ an Urbanski shot deflected by the Sassuolo defense ends up just wide. At 52’ a counterattack and conclusion to the side by Pedersen. At 62’ Zirkzee for Orsolini who concludes too weakly and Consigli parries easily. At 67’ Boloca saves a Ferguson conclusion for a corner, and soon after a Calafiori shot is also deflected into the corner.
At 73’ Bologna’s second equalizer: Kristiansen’s cross for Fabbian who beat Consigli with a header. At 76’ Boloca again, right foot high over the crossbar. At 83’83’ the hosts finally take the lead: Zirkzee’s bank for Ferguson who right-footed just inside the area strikes Consigli.
