Federal Government to procure 1600 mass transit buses on Monday as part of the long term plans to cushion the harsh effects of the removal of fuel subsidy FEC also directed all Ministries Departments and agencies MDAs to pay the monthly salaries of workers by January 20 to amelliorate the harsh effect; consequently FAAC meeting has been scheduled for January 15 to deliberate on the revenue sharing for the month Addressing State House correspondents at the end of an emergency Federal Executive Council FEC meeting presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa Abuja Olusegun Aganga minister of trade and investment who was joined by Labaran Maku minister of information and Idris Umar minister of transportation said the 1600 mass transit buses formed part of the N10 billion revolving loan set aside by the government to address transport infrastructure in the country The revolving loan according to him is payable over a five years period and attracts a 5 per cent interest rate under the Urban Mass Transit Programme and would be made available to credible transporters labour unions and other Nigerians involved in transport business According to him “we have a duty to turn short term pain to long term gains” adding that “government has placed order for massive supply of decent diesel buses to solve transportation problem In the next couple of weeks there will be sufficient mass transit buses It will go on for two years” Aganga stated further that “any moment from now we should take delivery of these buses As the Federal Executive Council we are not here to punish Nigerians” “For the first time we want to put in place a sustainable robust mass transit programme” says loan at five per cent interest rate to be made available to transporters “to reduce the pains fellow Nigerians are going through now” he said The minister argued that contrary to reports the subsidy issue actually started in 2009 adding that “we have been undertaking poverty and social impact analysis to see what impact this will have on Nigerians That is because we realised the pain it will cause and today’s meeting gave us the opportunity to empathise and to know that it was a very painful decision” “I think we will all agree that the economy case has been a case of how and when but we have a duty as government to cushion the temporary pains We have a duty to convert the pain to long term gains for Nigerians and the economy” he said On the outcome of the meeting Maku disclosed that “the meeting was called to deliberate on very crucial national issue particularly on the deregulation of the downstream sector of the Nigerian oil industry” adding that “Mr President called the meeting to expedite action on the measures to cushion the effects of the removal of fuel subsidy” He regretted that “previous government has postponed deregulation the intended benefits did not come true because for as long as government continuous to monopolise the sector no private sector will come in and invest” Culled from Vanguard The exact number to be recalled remained uncertain Civilian Pentagon employees comprise about half the 800000 federal employees currently furloughedDefense Secretary Chuck Hagel said a legal review of the "Pay Our Military Act" signed by President Barack Obama on Monday on the eve of the shutdown would allow him to bring a still unspecified number of civilians back to work next weekThe announcement came as Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives agreed to pay all furloughed employees retroactively once the government reopens It was a rare moment of cooperation in the House as the two parties were entrenched in their positions on the shutdown The US Senate is expected to go alongBut the actions did not solve the basic problem – the failure of Democrats and Republicans to settle their political differences and agree on a bill to fund and reopen the governmentThe House measure prompted Democratic Representative Louise Slaughter of New York to suggest that since the employees were going to get their salaries anyway "why don’t we just let them come back to work""This whole thing is crazy" she saidOutside the Capitol where Congress was meeting on Saturday two small children sat at the foot of the stairs holding placards reading: End the shutdown" and "Stop acting like children"As they moved into the second week of a shutdown members appeared no closer to finding a way to end it or to head off a possible default by the government on Oct 17 the deadline for Congress to increase the government’s authority to borrow moneyTalk of using broader budget deals to bring the standoff to an end has picked up in recent days but without any visible resultDemocrats say bills to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling could be resolved quickly if House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner permitted votes on simple no-strings-attached measuresBut most House Republicans want strings attached including one aimed at crippling Obama’s signature healthcare law and Boehner has so far refused to promise votes on either in part because he could face a revolt that might cost him his jobDemocrats have already begun efforts to force a vote on the shutdown using complex and time-consuming parliamentary procedures They have also tried to persuade Boehner to convene a "conference committee" with the Senate to discuss broader budget issues something Boehner has resisted fearing that Democrats might use arcane House rules to bring other measures to the House floor such as raising taxes on the wealthyHouse Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to Boehner signed by 195 of 200 Democrats demanding a vote on a bill to reopen the government without any rollback in ObamacarePelosi said if Boehner did so they would agree to the Republicans’ government funding level for the next six weeks more stringent than the Democratic level which has already been approved by the SenateBoehner’s press secretary Michael Steel brushed off Pelosi’s offer saying "At this point it’s Senate Democrats and the president who are blocking progress on reopening the government and providing the American people fairness under ObamacareDebt ceilingThe standoff which began at the start of the new fiscal year on Tuesday and shuttered all but essential government operations was sparked by Republicans’ determination to block or delay implementation of the healthcare law popularly known as ObamacareThe law aims to provide healthcare to millions of uninsured Americans But Republicans argue it is a massive government intrusion into private medicine that will cause insurance premiums to skyrocket put people out of work and eventually lead to socialized medicineRepublicans are also seeking concessions in exchange for raising the nation’s $167 trillion debt limit If the borrowing cap is not increased the United States could go into default with what officials and economists say would be seriously damaging consequences for the US and global economiesDemocrats vow they will make no such concessions on the funding bill or the debt ceilingObama said in an interview with the Associated Press released on Saturday that he did not expect to have to take any unusual steps to prevent the United States from defaulting on its debt because he believes Congress will raise the debt ceiling"I don’t expect to get there" Obama said "There were at least some quotes yesterday that Speaker Boehner is willing to make sure that we don’t default" he said"And I’m pretty willing to bet that there are enough votes in the House of Representatives right now to make sure that the United States doesn’t end up being a deadbeat" Obama saidRepublicans blame the White House for the fiscal deadlock saying the president is refusing to compromiseAfter the House vote on retroactive pay Kevin McCarthy the Republican majority whip said his party was ready to negotiate with Obama and his fellow Democrats "The president is here this weekend we are here this weekend Now is the time since everyone is in town to pick up the phone and talk" he saidScott Rigell a Republican representative from Virginia who has called for a "clean" vote to fund the government that does not involve Obama’s healthcare law said as far as he knew there were no behind-the-scenes negotiations between Republicans and Democrats over the shutdown or the debt ceiling"No one is talking" Rigell told ReutersUncertainty continuesWhile the retroactive pay bill enjoys bipartisan support it does not end the uncertainty that federal workers face about when the government will reopen and they will be paid"These employees who provide vital services to the American people will have a little peace of mind" with passage of this bill said Joseph Beaudoin president of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees AssociationThe shutdown is affecting the economy across the country from companies that deal with government contracts to national parks that normally generate millions of dollars a day in tourism revenuesArizona Governor Jan Brewer a Republican sent a letter to Obama on Friday urging him to back a bill to reopen national parks such as the Grand Canyon or at least allow states to use state and private funding to reopen themFacing public anger over the government shutdown House Republicans have adopted a strategy of voting piecemeal to fund some popular federal agencies – like the Veterans Administration the National Park Service and the National Institutes of Health – that are partially closedDemocrats have rejected that arguing Congress has a duty to pass a bill funding the entire government” she said.
