Bennievineznotes that having a business idea is not enough, you still need the required funding to kick begin your business, especially one that you will not have to pay back as we will be walking you through the list of federal government grants you can apply for this year.

What Is A Grant?

Grant is simply a fund given to an individual to support his/her business growth without the individual necessarily having to pay back which also means it does not attract collateral.  Grants are given by Large organizations, governments, Nongovernmental organizations, and wealthy individuals for various purposes. Unlike loans, you do not have to pay back.

Difference between Grants and Loans

Most times, people mistake grants for loans but we know the below explanation will give you a better understanding of both.

A Grant is simply a subsidy that is given to either organization or to individuals, which usually comes in the form of money or in the form of support, which cannot be returned. that is to say, a grant cannot be repaid, it is not like a loan that you will have to repay after some months which may attract you to lose your property or whatever you used for collateral.

A loan is money given to you which is meant to be repaid and in most cases, it attracts an interest rate and also collateral which the lender will hold in case you did not pay back.

Oromoni’s Death: Dowen College to remain shut while other schools resume – Lagos state government

Published

on

The Lagos state government has said that Dowen College in Lekki, Lagos state will not be reopened on Tuesday, the 4th of January until the investigation into the death of a student of the school, Sylvester Oromoni, reaches an advanced stage.


This is as other private primary and secondary schools in Lagos prepare to resume for the commencement of the second term on Tuesday, January 4.

Recall that Oromoni died on November 30, 2021. His family alleged he was beaten by some of his seniors days before he died.

Following the public outrage generated by the incident, the Lagos state government on December 3, 2021, ordered the indefinite closure of the school.

In an interview with Premium Times, an assistant director in charge of the public affairs unit, Ministry of Education, Ganiu Lawal, said very soon, the school would join others to resume but “not until ongoing investigations into the unfortunate incident reach an advanced stage.”

According to Lawal, since the matter was not strictly a state matter and with the involvement of the police and other parties, “it would be ideal for all “t’s” to be crossed and “I’s” to be dotted.

“But I can assure you that very soon the issue will be resolved, but they are not resuming tomorrow” Lawal said

In a statement released on Monday, January 3, the state’s Commissioner for Education, Folasade Adefisayo, said bullying, cultism, and other vices would not be tolerated in any part of the school. Admonishing school administrators to increase counseling of students against these vices, the commissioner welcomed students, teachers, and school administrators to the starting of a New Year and second term of 2021/2022 school session.

“Devise appropriate strategies to advance teacher, student interaction in order to gain an insight and expose negative tendencies before they metamorphose into unfortunate situations. Adequate monitoring, especially as it affects boarding school students should be enforced to prevent the incidence of bullying and all other vices,” the commissioner advised

Sylvester Oromoni: Autopsy report exonerates housemasters and the students from murder – Police

Published

on

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has said that the two autopsies carried out on 11-year-old Dowen college student, Sylvester Oromoni,  did not show that he was murdered.

Vanguard reports that Odumosu in an interview said two autopsies were carried out on Oromoni’s body and both disregarded any allegation of killing. He was, however, quick to add that investigation was still ongoing, part of which was the toxicology test that needed to be conducted on the corpse.

” We are not at the peak yet.  But we have done  our investigation and have sent the report to the Directorate of Public Prosecution, DPP for legal advise on those arrested and DPP has replied. We have gone through the medical aspect  which is the post mortem.

Post mortem was carried out in Delta and Lagos states.  The first one done in Delta State was only witnessed by parents of the deceased.

But after I held a meeting with the parties concerned, at the instance and directive of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu  and my Inspector- General of Police, IGP Alkali Usman Baba, the second post mortem was carried out in Lagos.

The corpse was brought from Delta State to Lagos, where the Post mortem was carried out with all the parties involved , that is : parents of the deceased, parents of the students accused, the school authority  and government. These were the four parties that witnessed the post mortem. And the result is out.

The report of the Post Mortem did not bring out the issue of murder on anybody.

Besides the result of the autopsy, the court order that we got has elapsed  and we have released the house master and others on bail,  because there was nothing that indicted them of murder.

It is only a murder case that is not bailable. Every other offences are bailable. They have been in custody for more than twenty days and that is infringing on their fundamental human rights. Since medical and legal reports have not indicted them so far, I think there is need to allow them have their freedom because bail is not the end of the case.

Another forensic test known as toxicology , will be carried out on the corpse.

By the way, the  Toxicology test is to determine the concoction that was allegedly forced into the deceased mouth which peeled his lips.

Toxicology test was being done in Nigeria before, precisely at the Lagos State medical facility in Lagos Island. But after the EndASRS crisis, it is conducted outside the country.

Until that one is effectively done, we won’t know the final report. But with the interim report, nothing showed  murder”Odumosu said

Recall that the deceased, who was a Junior Secondary School 2 student of Dowen College and a boarder, was rushed to his parent’s home in Warri, Delta State two months ago, owing to some injuries he sustained after he was allegedly attacked by some of his seniors. The school however dismissed the claim. According to them, he was injured during a football match. He died on November 30.

The police began an investigation into the incident. Five of the students whose names Sylvester allegedly mentioned before passing were arrested alongside three housemasters. They have however, been released on bail.

FG extends NIN/SIM verification till March 2022 as enrolment hits 71 million

Published

on

The deadline for linkage of the Subscribers Identity Module (SIM) cards with the National Identity Numbers (NIN) has been extended till March 31, 2022, by the federal government. 

Prof. Isa Ibrahim Pantami, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy conveyed the approval of the Federal Government in a joint statement by the Director of Public Affairs of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, and the Head of Corporate Communications of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), Mr. Kayode Adegoke.

It was also stated that  71 million citizens have been captured in the national database as of December 30.

The statement read; 

“As of 30th December 2021, the NIMC has issued over 71million NINs with over 14,000 enrolment centres set up across the country.

“Furthermore, the NIMC has also set up enrolment centres in over 31 countries to cater for Nigerians in the Diaspora.

“The unprecedented growth in the National Identity Database to over 71 million unique NINs in such a short period, with about three to four SIMs linked to a NIN, reflects the concerted effort of the Federal Government, the Nigerian populace and legal residents and this is truly commendable.

“Following the request by stakeholders, including citizens, legal residents and Nigerians in the diaspora, the Federal Government has extended the deadline of the exercise to the 31st of March, 2022.

“This extension would enable the Federal Government to consolidate the gains of the process and accelerate the enrolment of Nigerians in key areas like the remote areas, diaspora, schools, hospitals, worship centres, and the registration of legal residents.

“The Honourable Minister has, however, implored Nigerians and legal residents to enrol for their NINs and link with their SIMs during this period of extension as more services will be requiring the NIN for identification.

“He also reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to support the NCC and the NIMC in ensuring that the objectives of the exercise are achieved.”
