Nigerian Newspapers Daily Front Pages Review

Naija News looks at the top happenings making headlines on the front pages of Nigeria’s national newspapers today Thursday, December, 16th 2021.

According to The PUNCH, a petition seeking a state of emergency in Sokoto, Zamfara, Katsina and other states in the North-West had garnered 28,000 signatures on Change.Org on Wednesday evening even as the insecurity in the region continued to escalate.

Citizens reacted yesterday, to the Federal Government’s claim that Nigeria is safer today than in 2015. According to The Guardian, the Federal Government had earlier berated critics who accused President Muhammadu Buhari of showing no empathy over the worsening insecurity in parts of the country, saying that their allegation smacks of dirty politicking.

The Federal Government yesterday faulted former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s assessment of President Muhammadu Buhari’s score card in the last six years, The Nation reports.

There is growing uncertainty in the political terrain as the 30 days’ timeline for President Muhammadu Buhari to assent the Electoral Act Bill elapses on Sunday, Daily Trust reports.

Upon completion, the Feder­al Government will toll the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Abuja-Kano road and the second Niger Bridge to ensure mainte­nance and also to pay back loans used for them, Independent says.

According to Tribune, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved “peculiar allowance” for the police to take off from January 2022. The allowance will increase police personnel take-home pay by 20 per cent of their present earning.
