…Obaseki Has Robust Governance System For Edo People – Aide

The Vice Chairman  of Media and Publicity Committee of APC National Campaign Council, Hon Patrick Obahiagbon yesterday accused Governor Godwin Obaseki of abandoning governance and rather spending time to plot the rigging of coming September 19th election.

Addressing a press conference, Obahiagbon said Obaseki has failed in bringing dividends of democracy to the people of the state.

He said the administration has become an automated teller machine to the Peoples Democratic Party.

He said, “Matters of governance in Edo State which was the primary ratiocination why the Governor was elected, which in any case have been hereinbefore handled with Olympian aloofness and magisterial pontifications, has now been completely abandoned, jettisoned, and forgotten completely as the outgoing governor has turned his attention, full-time, on how to subvert the September 19th election through rigging, intimidation, arm-twisting, unbriddled threats, violence, and other anti democratic underhand tactics.”

He also accused the governor of not paying attention to warnings that the state would be affected by torrential rainfalls hence the flooding in parts of the state capital whenever it rains.

In his reaction, the Special Adviser to Obaseki on Media and Communication strategy, Crusoe Osagie said the Obaseki-led government has a robust governance system in place that is responding to the daily needs of Edo people in all sectors of the state.

He said, “The governor is renowned for his best-in-class managerial skills, a fact the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) cannot controvert, and has been multi-tasking amid the demands of his reelection campaigns.

” Specifically, salaries and pension for Edo workers and pensioners for the month of July, 2020, were paid on the 23rd, to enable our Muslim brothers and sisters celebrate the Eid-El-Kabir festival.

” The APC continues to reinforce its disadvantage each time it attempts to fault the managerial ability of Governor Godwin Obaseki, because Edo people know that the governor is head and shoulder above Osagie Ize-Iyamu in human and material resources management, and feel secure with Governor Obaseki in charge of governance, especially in the application of our scarce resources.”

NCC Warns Nigerians Of New Ways Hijackers Attack Computers

Published

on

The Nigerian Communications Commission’s Computer Security Incident Response Team (NCC-CSIRT) has urged organisations to adopt stronger cybersecurity measures.

These measures include ensuring that organisations’ employees use strong, unique passwords for every account and enabling multi-factor authentication (2FA) wherever it is supported to prevent ransomware attacks as well as advising organisations to ensure regular systems backup.

The NCC-CSIRT’s warning contained in its advisory of August 12, 2022, came after the Yanluowang threat actors gained access to Cisco’s network using an employee’s stolen credentials after hijacking the employee’s personal Google account containing credentials synced from their browser.

Ransomware is a malware designed to deny a user or organization access to files on their computer until they pay the attackers.

Cisco reported the security incident on its corporate network but said it did not identify any impact on its business although the threat actors had published a list of files from this security incident on the dark web on August 10.

NCC-CSIRT estimated potential damage from the incident to be critical while predicting that successful exploitation of the ransomware will result in ransomware deployment to compromise computer systems, sensitive products and customers’ data theft and exposure, as well as huge financial loss to organizations by incurring significant indirect costs and could also mar their reputations.

The team said, “The first step to preventing ransomware attacks is to ensure that employees are using strong, unique passwords for every account and enabling multi-factor authentication (2FA) wherever it’s supported.”

It further disclosed that “In response to the attack, Cisco has immediately implemented a company-wide password reset. Users of Cisco products should ensure a successful password reset.

“As a precaution, the company has also created two Clam AntiVirus signatures (Win.Exploit.Kolobko-9950675-0 and Win.Backdoor.Kolobko-9950676-0) to disinfect any potentially compromised assets. Clam AntiVirus Signatures (or ClamAV) is a multi-platform antimalware toolkit that can detect a wide range of malware and viruses.

“User education is critical in thwarting this type of attacks or any similar attacks, including ensuring that employees are aware of the legitimate channels through which support personnel will contact users, so that employees can identify fraudulent attempts to obtain sensitive information. Organisations should ensure regular systems backup,” the advisory urged.

Obi had last month attended a well-broadcast service at Dunamis International Gospel Centre in Abuja led by Pastor Paul Enenche and his followers met him with an energetic welcome.

RCCG’s General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, had in April said though God had not spoken to him about next year’s election he would pray for any candidate who came to him for prayers.

“As of now, I still don’t know whether or not there will be an election next year, yet. I don’t know because my father has not spoken about it yet. The reason could be in Matthew 6-34.

“For your information, if anyone comes to me from any political party, I will pray for them, the general prayer point I pray for them is Father, let your perfect will for this person be done,” the 80-year-old had said.
