Nigeria’s new excise tax on Tobacco is actually in line with Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the World Health Organization (WHO) directives, which urged member States and Countries to increase duty rates on tobacco products in order to curtail abuse and promote moderation in consumption.

Two days later, Premium Times and TheCable gave "exclusive" reports with details of a preliminary report from the IGP to the Acting President. Premium Times says it does not know if the Acting President has seen the documents it revealed to Nigerians.

Following the dismissal and arrest of the Director of the State Security Service, Lawal Musa Daura, the Inspector General of Police began an investigation into the activities of the former SSS Boss and wrote a preliminary report to the Acting President detailing, among other things, sensitive information like where Daura is being held and asking for permission to search his house. A number of media houses taught it wise to make this information public.

The journey to being sacked and arrested is popularly believed to have started for Daura on August 7 when masked DSS operatives prevented Senators and House of Representative members from entering the National Assembly.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki had called a meeting of the leadership of the National Assembly to consider a proposal from President Muhammadu Buhari on the said day.

Videos soon began flying all over social media showing a female member of the House of Representatives, Boma Goodhead, daring the operatives of the DSS to shoot her as she and her colleagues were prevented from entering the complex. An action which reminded many of a sad history of dealing with defectors.

Just hours in, the Vice President was reported to have invited the IG of Police and the SSS Director to the Villa. It was later reported that the IGP denied any Police involvement while the DSS Director…

A thorough look at the Bill shows it has more to offer employees while also putting Government as well as private Organizations on their toes. It also revealed that the Presidency may have read the Bill wrongly and made a judgment based on this error.

In July, four bills from the National Assembly were rejected by the Presidency. One of such is the  Corporate Manslaughter Bill, which was rejected on grounds of constitutional inconsistency. But a thorough look at the Bill shows it has more to offer employees while also putting Government as well as private Organizations on their toes. It also revealed that the Presidency may have read the Bill wrongly and made a judgment based on this error.

The Bill sponsored by the All Progressive Congress (APC) Senator representing Yobe North, Ahmad Lawan, stipulates that “Any Organization whose activities are managed or organized in such a way that it results in the death of a person and such death is occasioned by a gross breach of a relevant duty of care owed by the Organization to the deceased, commits an offence of Corporate Manslaughter”.

To put it simply, government and private agencies and organizations owe a certain duty of care to the people who work for them. Should an action of theirs result in the death of an employee and it is proven that these responsibilities were not met, the body is held responsible for the death of the staff.

But stating reasons for his rejection of the Bill, President Muhammadu Buhari wrote: “Specifically, my attention has been drawn to Section 1(5) of this Bill, which imposes a fine upon the mere indictment of a corporate organisation of the criminal offence of corporate manslaughter.

“This provision appears to be inconsistent with Section 36(5) of the 1999 Constitution, which enshrines the presumption of innocence until the alleged offender is convicted by a…
