The Theatre Commander of Operation Hadin Kai, Major General Christopher Musa, has said the greatest challenge by the troops has been the use of Improvised Explosive Devices by terrorists. According to him, the deplorable state of roads in the North East region had enabled terrorists to plant explosives, adding that bad roads were slowing down their operations. He said, “The main challenge we are having now is the IEDs they plant on the way and run away. The government should just help us tar the roads.”Speaking on the increasing population of the terrorists, he said, “I can tell you that over 11,000 fighters have surrendered. This is a strange mentality to increase their population.”He said the terrorists had no permanent base and nowhere to run to due to the various operations being embarked on by the military.

They noted that the petroleum products downstream industry, which is engaged in logistics and distribution, is also suffering the impact of these higher costs. In relation to the rising cost of aviation fuel (Jet A1), the marketers stated that the product, like others, is not produced locally and currently subsidized, going by the comparative prices in neighbouring countries. The Guardian learnt that all the local airlines took off on the morning belt, though with fuel supply the only impediment to seamless operation. “In comparative terms, the aviation industry is already benefiting from government’s intervention when local prices are compared to West African regional prices, despite the deregulated status of aviation fuel. This situation is hardly sustainable given the already humongous N4 Trillion cost of the PMS subsidy”, MOMAN added.

A growing number of Liberal and National party MPs face credible challenges from independents highlighting climate action at the federal election. This interactive list provides a guide to all of the candidates we have identified who are supported by, or sympathetic to, a “voices of” group in their electorate or have been referred to as teal independents (information as at 13 March). The criteria for inclusion are that they are either endorsed by the group, or, where “Voices of” groups are not endorsing candidates, the candidate has backed the priorities identified by the group. The movement was further invigorated by Zali Steggall’s victory over the former prime minister Tony Abbott in the Sydney seat of Warringah at the 2019 election. Some Coalition MPs have mounted a fierce attack on the candidates and Climate 200, claiming their relationship undermines the genuine independence of the challenge.
