on

The United Kingdom (UK) says it will cut tariffs on all goods imported from Ukraine to zero.

In an announcement on Monday evening, the government said the move came in response to a direct request from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to support his country’s economy.

According to the statement, removing tariffs on key Ukrainian exports, including barley, honey, tinned tomatoes, and poultry, will help Ukrainian businesses and producers when they need it most.

“All tariffs on goods imported from Ukraine will now be reduced to zero and all quotas will be removed under the free trade agreement, providing Ukraine economic support in their hour of need,” the statement reads.

“The prime minister pledged to cut tariffs to support Ukraine’s economy through this crisis when he visited Kyiv earlier this month.”

US and Portugal report cases of monkeypox

The United States has confirmed a case of monkeypox.

Monkeypox is a rare viral infection that does not spread easily between people. It is usually a mild self-limiting illness and most people recover within a few weeks. However, severe illness can occur in some individuals.

The infection can be spread when someone is in close contact with an infected person; however, there is a very low risk of transmission to the general population.

According to a statement on Wednesday by the Massachusetts department of public health (DPH), the case is an adult male with recent travel to Canada.

The DPH said it is working closely with the Centre for Disease Control, relevant local boards of health, and the patient’s health care providers to identify individuals who may have been in contact with the patient while he was infectious.

It said the case poses no risk to the public, and the individual is hospitalised and in good condition.

Also in Portugal, health authorities announced in Wednesday that five cases of monkeypox were confirmed in the country with 15 suspected cases under investigation.

The authorities said all cases were identified this month in the area around the capital, Lisbon, in mostly young men.

US Imposes Visa Ban On Nigerian Politicians Ahead Of 2023 Elections

Published

The United States of America has announced that anyone who promotes violence will face visa restrictions when Nigeria holds its general election in 2023.

This online newspaper understands that America’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Mr Michael Gonzales, issued the warning at a Johns Hopkins University international conference titled “United States Policy and Nigeria’s National Decisions in the 2023 Elections.”

The virtual conference, held at the School of Advanced International Studies in Washington DC, brought together Nigerian and American policymakers to discuss issues surrounding the 2023 general elections.

The US government, according to Gonzales, “will continue to use our messaging, as well as other diplomatic channels at our disposal, including visa restrictions where warranted, to dissuade those who may be tempted to use violence to undermine Nigeria’s democratic process.”

According to him, the US government is still committed to working with Nigeria to ensure a peaceful power transition in 2023.

Patrick Okigbo, Founding Partner of Nextier, clarified that the conference was held in the United States to bring election issues and conversations to the international stage.

He emphasised the importance of Nigeria’s international partners assisting in the country’s democratic process while emphasizing that “democracy is not an end state, but a project that requires continuous nurturing.”

He also warned that failing to address the issues raised at the conference could have disastrous consequences, whereas heeding the recommendations could yield a bountiful harvest.
