NOIPolls Opinion Polling Center; NOPC said that it is adding an exciting aura to the country’s journey to 2015 Elections with a bi-monthly polls on the Nigerian voting public, “our snap polls continue in their frequency alongside our quarterly and yearly releases.

A statement endorsed by Oge Funlola Modie on behalf of NOIPolls read: “Greetings from the NOIPolls team! Best wishes for a productive and healthy 2014 ahead.  The year 2013 was a remarkable year for the organisation. We made giant strides towards becoming the key provider for the much needed data and timely information on Nigeria to users in Africa and across the globe.

“We continued our stance as an innovative company by putting Africa on the map as the only polling organisation carrying out President Job approval ratings in Africa and second in the world, the only other organisation doing this is Gallup in the USA.

“2013 also saw the launch and operation of Nigeria’s (probably the continent’s) first ever Opinion Polling Call Center (NOIPolls Opinion Polling Center; NOPC) operating out of Abuja. This has pushed up the frequency of our snap polls from once a month in 2012 to four times a month with the Poll results released every Tuesday at 9am. If you haven’t subscribed to the e-newsletter for information on the results, you should immediately, I can bet that it would open a whole new world of insight and knowledge on the perceptions, tastes and trends of Nigerians on every topic from products, services, government policies to governance.

“The NOPC also has the capacity and, has been carrying out specific polling projects across the Federal Republic for clients in the FMCG, Banking, Energy, Telecommunications sectors, also for NGOs, CSOs, development institutions and academia to support and enrich their work/business. This provides timely and quick to see results that enhances decision-making.

“Speaking more on our innovations, over the year we started tracking Power Supply to Nigerian Households from January 2013 with the aim to provide a baseline for Nigerians /power sector stakeholders to evaluate the transition and performance of the new owners of Nigerian Power assets.  Over the 12 months in view, we can loosely tie perception of households on power to the President’s approval rating.  All this information is available on our website.

“Our yearly releases on Football Fanaticism, Telecommunications services, Nigeria’s Independence celebrations, the Holiday Season and a special edition release (this year on questioning the Poverty threshold) has elicited power debates across the country and provided a trend on the users of these services over the two years in review.

“This year has also seen us form strong partnerships/bonds with our key stakeholder groups (Media, Third Sector organisations, Private Sector businesses, Public Sector parastatals and the Nigerian Public) through our awareness workshops, seminars, talk shows and the NOIPolls Open Day. These events provided an interactive platform for users of our data to understand the methodology, process and analysis of data collection and how best to use the data to enhance research and planning”.

On 2014, Modie said that, it promises to be a very exciting and fired up year for NOIPolls. “2014 sees us releasing our portfolio of indices (another first for Nigeria), we would be evaluating the growth of the Nigerian Economy through our Consumer Confidence Index, Business Confidence Index, Purchasing Manager’s Index and the Personal Well Being Index from January 2014, also we start the very exciting Journey to 2015 Elections roll with bi-monthly polls on the Nigerian voting public, our snap polls continue in their frequency alongside our quarterly and yearly releases. We would also be releasing our much-awaited publications; the NOIPolls bi-annual National Survey, The Business Leaders Perception Survey, The BET Report (Banking, Energy, Telecommunications), The Niger Delta report and our Centenary edition of Revealing Nigeria (a six year journey). This is a whole lot of data coming your way so do get subscribed to our weekly newsletter to stay connected to the source.

Modie said that the Centre remains grateful to all those who have supported the drive to ensure that opinion research becomes and, is sustained as a rich and key complement to product/service development, policy planning, monitoring interventions and most of all nation building and development.

Federal government has launched a Central Database under the Asset Tracing, Recovery and Management Regulations (ARTM), 2019 and the Central Criminal Justice Information System (CCJIS) under the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACS) 2017 – 2011 to assist in the fight against corruption.

FG Launches Central Database for Stolen Asset Tracing

Mr Abubakar Malami, AGF

Mr Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF) and minister of Justice, at the launch in Abuja, said the database will ensure uniformity of process, access and information feeding to deepen transparency and accountability in the management of recovered assets.

To ensure compliance, he said his office is developing legislation for the full implementation and operation of the CCJIS.

“We will work together to establish and re-enact transparency and accountability in governance and management of our resources which we have committed to do by way of strengthening International Cooperation of our membership of Open Government Partnership,” he said.

In his speech, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the House of Representatives, represented by Mrs Ugonna Ozurigbo, chairman, House Committee on Justice, said the regulation on Asset Tracing, Recovery and proper management of proceeds of crime was signed on October 24, 2019, and took effect from November 1, 2019, replaced the proceeds of Crime Regulation of 2012.

The new regulation titled Asset Tracing, Recovery and Management Regulations 2019 empowers the AGF to take charge of the custody and management of all final forfeited assets, approval and appointment of asset managers and operating and maintaining a database for the records of all recovered assets within and outside Nigeria.

He said, the AGF’s office, under the new regulation, is also required to coordinate inter-agency investigations into recovery matters within and outside Nigeria from all law enforcement agencies whose law empowers them to undertake recoveries and maintaining a depository for all forfeiture orders issued by the Nigeria courts and courts outside Nigeria.

Asset Tracing, Recovery and Management, according to the Speaker, is a core value of good governance and its effective management will serve as a deterrent to would-be fraudulent minded individuals who may find themselves in public offices.

According to him, states resources must not be allowed to be stolen but if that happened by fraudulent individuals, efforts must be taken to trace the proceed, recover same and manage for the interest of the generality of the people.

“When the proceeds of crime are traced and recovered but again looted by government officials, I dare to say such act amounts to the crime of tertiary capacity and must be avoided.

“Assets not accounted for are assets lost; loss of assets undervalues the economic potential of a country and will negatively impact on the net worth of a country. Accordingly, Asset Tracing Recovery and Management is a panacea to rekindling of the value system of a nation,” the Speaker noted.
