Nominees such as song-of-the-summer queen Ariana Grande,Chief Precious Elekima protem National Chairman of the New African Democratic Congress (N-ADC) has described the sack of the Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS) Mr Lawal Daura as “a hasty decision’’ N-ADC is a group which on Tuesday pulled out of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) Elekima told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that he expected the Federal Government to investigate issues surrounding Daura’s actions in connection with the security siege to the National Assembly on Tuesday before sacking him DAILY POST recalls that the operatives of the DSS had as early as 7am blocked the entrance of the National Assembly preventing lawmakers workers contractors and other visitors from gaining entry into the complex Consequently the Acting President Prof Yemi Osinbajo ordered the immediate sack of Daura saying the action of the DSS operatives at the National Assembly was a breach of the Constitution and violation of Rule of Law adding that it was unacceptable But Elekima said that such decision was not the best for the security and intelligence gathering of the country “Basically security abstract is not something you can touch “The decision of the security chieftain did not in any way create any problem There is over dramatisation of the entire thing “The danger we stand of the use of public opinion to take decisions playing to the gallery is that it may discourage other security chiefs from taking proactive action “Yes the sack decision sounds sweet but it is not the best “As far as I am concerned the best that would have happened is that they should have taken time to investigate what happened” he said Elekima insisted that the incident at the National Assembly did not constitute a threat to the country’s democracy By Mari SaitoIKATA Japan (Reuters) – On a side street near a darkened shopping arcade full of abandoned storefronts in southwestern Japan the Sushi Ko restaurant is unusually busy on a weekdayBalancing a tray full of drinks Sachiyo Ozaki said most of her restaurant’s customers were there because of an industry shunned elsewhere: nuclear power"He drives a minivan to take workers to the plant" she said gesturing towards a man sitting at the counter Pointing to another man sipping a beer she added "And he works in construction so they’ve been busy too""We’re all for nuclear power and you can print that" Ozaki saidIn the mostly residential neighbourhood around her restaurant hotel rooms and local inns were also packed with workers preparing to reopen Shikoku Electric Power’s Ikata nuclear plant nestled next to Japan’s inland sea at the base of the verdant Sadamisaki peninsula Nearly eight years after an earthquake and tsunami triggered nuclear meltdowns at Tokyo Electric Power’s Fukushima Daiichi plant the battered industry is making a quiet and somewhat unexpected return in JapanIkata is a poster child for that recovery In September a court reversed a decision that had idled Shikoku Electric’s sole nuclear reactor for about a year paving the way for the operator to re-open the facility last weekRegional utilities like Shikoku Electric have aggressively fought a string of lawsuits since 2011 hiring veteran lawyers to beef up their legal teams At the same time they wooed towns where nuclear plants are based visiting with residents door to door while the government kept up a stream of generous subsidies for local projectsThanks in large part to this strategy Japan is on track to have nine reactors running in the near futureThat is a far cry from the 54 running before 2011 – all of which were idled after the Fukushima disaster – but more than analysts and experts expected considering it seemed at the time like the end of the road for the country’s nuclear industryA Reuters analysis calculates that as few as six more reactors are likely to restart within the next five years eight will mostly likely be mothballed and that the prospects for two dozen others is uncertainDespite that cloudy outlook nuclear power recently overtook renewables like wind and solar in Japan’s energy mix for the first time since FukushimaCOURT BATTLESJapan embraced nuclear power after World War II spurred by the promise of clean energy and independence from foreign suppliersBut the botched Fukushima disaster response sowed public distrust in the industry and the governmentGiven that scepticism some see a recent run of court victories by utilities as the resurgence of an alliance of industry government and host communities that for decades promoted the construction of nuclear facilities"If our losing streak continues we could see 20 to 25 reactors come back online" says Hiroyuki Kawai a prominent anti-nuclear lawyer who represented citizens in a suit against Shikoku ElectricSince 2011 hundreds of citizens represented by volunteer lawyers like Kawai have filed nearly 50 lawsuits against the Japanese government and utilities in 25 district and appellate courtsIn Ikata Shikoku Electric spent months gaining approval for a restart from the tougher post-Fukushima regulator rebooting one of its plant’s three reactors in 2016 But in December 2017 an appellate court issued a temporary injunction keeping the reactor already idled for routine maintenance shut down for nine more monthsIn response the company pulled more staff into its legal department and drafted its head of nuclear power to supervise the team The utility also recruited outside lawyers who had handled cases for other operators"There are only a handful of lawyers knowledgeable about nuclear litigation so they’re popular and sought after" said Kenji Sagawa the deputy general manager of the company’s Tokyo officeYoshiaki Yamanouchi 76 began his career in nuclear litigation in 1973 when he represented Shikoku Electric in a landmark suit brought by Ikata residents seeking to stop the plant from openingHe still represents the utility and works with other companies advising younger lawyers fighting similar cases which he calls "superficial" in far-flung district courtsStory Continues"Utilities in particular Shikoku have gotten much smarter about fighting for the plants they know they can reopen and mothballing others that would cost too much time and money" Yamanouchi said The utility is decommissioning two of the three reactors at IkataShikoku Electric would not disclose how much it has spent fighting legal challenges but said it was a fraction of the cost of idling a plantEvery month a nuclear reactor sits inoperative the utility spends 35 billion yen ($31 million) for additional fuel at its conventional power plants Shikoku has also spent 190 billion yen on safety upgrades to meet stricter rules set by the Nuclear Regulation AuthorityActivists have seen some victories Western Japan’s Kansai Electric Power Co Inc has had its reactors slapped with temporary injunction orders multiple times over the years All of these decisions were later overturned by higher courts "Before Fukushima these utilities won by default – now they have to work harder" said Yuichi Kaido a lawyer who has spent three decades duelling Yamanouchi in courtShikoku Electric still faces several lawsuits and injunction requests A Hiroshima court rejected a request from residents to extend the suspension of the Ikata reactor on Oct 26 a day before the operator restarted itA COMPANY TOWNThe quiet revival of Japan’s nuclear industry is most tangible in rural areas like Ikata which are home to the bulk of the country’s nuclear plantsIkata is best known for its "mikan" mandarin oranges harvested on terrace farms on the sides of steep hills overlooking the Seto Inland Sea and Uwa Sea The town with 9500 residents relies on nuclear power for a third of its annual revenue Since 1974 Ikata has received more than 1017 billion yen ($9084 million) in such paymentsThese funds literally built the town; Ikata’s roads schools hospitals fire stations and even five traditional "taiko" drums for festivals were all paid for with subsidies"My biggest struggle now is finding one or two more pillars for this town other than nuclear power" said Ikata Mayor Kiyohiko TakakadoThe town and utility’s mutual dependence stretch back decadesKiyokichi Nakamoto was a city councilman in Ikata when he successfully wooed the utility to his hometown On the walls of the dim parlour of his home are framed commendations from two prime ministers thanking him for his contributions to Japan’s energy policy"We were a poor village with only farming and fishing" the 90-year old said Had the town failed to attract the plant Ikata would have gone broke Nakamoto saidIn the wake of the Fukushima disaster Shikoku Electric campaigned to reassure residents of their plant’s safety Employees wearing the company’s blue uniforms went from house to house to explain how their plant was different from Fukushima Daiichi – and therefore safe"If something like Fukushima happened here our reputation would be destroyed in an instant" said orange farmer Shigeto Suka 54 as he checked the still-green mikan on branchesHe and other farmers in Yawatahama a neighbouring town 15 kilometres (9 miles) from the plant worry that even a hint of contamination would devastate their brandAfter the 2011 nuclear disaster Fukushima’s farmers and fishermen were unable to sell their produce because of fears over contaminated food Dozens of countries still have restrictions on Fukushima produceFor others in the area the Ikata plant feels like an inextricable part of lifeHiroshi Omori 43 spent most days over the summer at Shikoku Electric’s visitors’ house overlooking the Ikata plant His three young children take free art classes there while Omori and other parents wait in air-conditioned rooms sipping water and teaBut Ikata is projected to shrink to 5000 residents over the next 20 years and Takakado recently said he found it hard to imagine an industry that could replace nuclear powerThis year he joined dozens of other mayors across Japan to voice their support for the industry and ask the government to clarify its position on building new plants or replacing old ones"I’m just trying to prevent the town from losing even more people" he said($1 = 11195 yen)(Additional reporting by Osamu
