Updates on AGF’s Office: All Data & Records are Intact, Nothing is Lost



Updates on AGF's Office: All Data & Records are Intact, Nothing is Lost

All Data & Records Are Intact

In Response to the reactive trends of emotions towards the fire engulfed AGF’s office yesterday 8th April 2020, Nigeria’s Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Prince Clem Agba, has said no data or records were lost.

All Data & Records are Intact, Nothing is Lost

FEATURED-IMAGE---FEDERAL-FIRE-SERVICE-PUTS-OUT-FIRE-FROM-AGF-OFFICEThe fire occurred during a bad timing of events and mixed-feelings for Nigerians who were subjected to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Lockdown (stay-at-home) rule and other ravaging issues.

Anyway, to refute all claims, it is best known to have an idea of what has caused the fire outbreak in the first place.

The cause of the fire was neither a deliberate act nor an act to siphon money, the claims are delusive and outrageous.

The fire might be caused by a spark as the room temperature rises since we are in an era of climate depletion. And also human negligence is out of control.

It is quite easy for Nigerians to put two and two together to come up with rumour claiming the fire outbreak was an avenue to siphon money and destroy pieces of evidence of looting.


But in spite of all views towards this incident, a wake-up call needs to sound to all Nigerians to ensure we give our country a positive review, elements of hopes and support the country in his struggle towards matching her contemporaries.

Because of the unmeasurable amount of energy and efforts are daily dissipated by the security men ensuring safety and orderliness, the customs safeguarding borders, the medical personnel risking their own lives just to save all, the ministry of finance overseeing spending, the accountant general officer safeguarding treasury and the federal government ensuring all falls into place in the fight against COVID-19 Pandemic in the country.

And many other patriotic duties embarked upon by our people need to be commended.

In light of this enlightenment, the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Prince Clem Agba said

“We have gone round the rooms and officers where the fire affected, and I am glad to report that our data centre were all out records are kept are fully intact._

“There is no destruction, so we haven’t lost any record.”


A Special thanks to the Federal Fire servicemen for prompt and fast response in putting out the fire._

In light of this, the AGF’s office and his team should be praised for this proactive data & record keeping preparedness initiative towards unforeseen contingencies.


Nonetheless, the AGF and his team deserve some applause in ensuring all data and records are kept safe in such scenario through adopting the right measure in data and records keeping.

First Batch of Fleeing Nigerians Arrive from Ukraine



No fewer than 427 Nigerians based in Ukraine arrived Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja on Friday Morning.




They arrived en route Romania via Max Air.

This is according to an update by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) on its Twitter handle.

The passengers, numbering over 400 from Romania, landed at the private jet terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport by 7:10 am (WAT) via a Max Air flight on Friday. They are mostly students who fled Ukraine to Romania following Russia’s invasion of the Eastern European country.

They were reportedly received by government officials and are expected to undergo documentation after which they will head home and self-isolate in line with the COVID-19 protocols. The Federal Government said they will be given some money to enable them to get to their destinations.

Friday’s flight, which was billed to arrive a day earlier, was delayed as the Federal Government cited a hitch in preparing passengers for the check-in process.

Asides Romania, the pickup flights will evacuate Nigerians from Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary.

Officials at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had earlier said about 5, 000 Nigerians are eligible for evacuation from the warring region. The country will spend $8.5m on the exercise.

Other flights are expected to arrive in the country in the coming days as nations battle to evacuate their citizens.

Already, several African countries had moved their citizens, mainly students, from the conflict zone. Ghana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa were among the first set of nations to evacuate their citizens amid reports of racism by Ukrainian and Polish officials at the border posts.
