The Federal Government has announced plans to organize another tripartite stakeholders’ meeting, as they have reiterated their commitment towards resolving the incessant gridlock and truck menace on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

This disclosure was made by the Coordinating Director, Highway Construction and Rehabilitation in Nigeria, Mr Funsho Adebiyi on Saturday during an inspection tour of the ongoing Lagos-Ibadan Expressway rehabilitation and reconstruction project.

According to a report from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Adebiyi said that those invited to the meeting include the Lagos, Ogun and Oyo state governments, as well as truck drivers and owners, traffic regulatory agencies, amongst others.

What Mr Adebiyi is saying

While expressing regret that the constant presence of articulated trucks parking indiscriminately on the Oghere section of the ongoing Lagos-Ibadan Expressway project is damaging new construction work on the highway, he said that drastic steps must be taken to tackle the problem in each of these states in conjunction with their governments.

He said,

  • You see trailers in their hundreds park on the road shoulders we are just repairing. Some of them are not parked empty, they are carrying as much as 900 bags of cement and they are abandoned there on the road shoulder.’’

He pointed out the need for another meeting, as the 4 previous stakeholders’ meetings held with truck drivers and owners, as well as other stakeholders did not achieve the desired results.

  • I had invited my Minister to a town hall meeting before and he has met them and we are organizing another town hall meeting with them next week Friday and Saturday, to come and sit down with them to discuss with the truck drivers, truck owners, the truck park operators. We are making efforts also to construct parks where they can park – about 4,000 capacity truck park. It will be constructed still along this Oghere end, but we are begging them to stop parking on the road.’’

Adebiyi, during an earlier inspection of section one of the highway which stretches from Ojota in Lagos to Sagamu interchange, said the federal government was constructing two major additional interchanges.

He also added that two flyovers were being constructed on section one, in addition to 14 existing ones on other stretches in Ogun and Oyo, to curb gridlock and improve the safety of new communities along the axis.

There are many VPN apps out there but the question is, how good are they? This article will be covering the best VPN apps of 2020, so if you are looking for the best VPN apps of 2020, you are at the right place but before we go into that, let’s have an insight of what VPN is all about.

 

What is VPN?

VPN is an abbreviation for Virtual Private Networks. It was developed to enable users extend private networks across public networks.

What does this mean? It means that users can send and receive data across shared or public networks like their devices were in direct contact to the private network.

VPNs are useful tools for protecting your online identity, bypassing regional restrictions on websites, grants access to blocked content on the web, hides your location and allows anonymous stay on the internet.

 

How to choose the best Android VPN app

We all know a dedicated Android app should be user-friendly, helps to make things as hassle-free as possible and also offers enough options to allow for some tweaking (this implies for more experienced users). So ensure it supports the version of Android you are using, with most going back at least to Pie and some letting you set up your network via manual configuration.

You’re probably going to want to use your Android VPN on loads of other devices, too – so make sure you get one that also works with your computer’s operating system and has enough licences to cover all your gadgets.

Another thing to look out for when choosing a VPN app is security, get the one that offers kill switch, so you you’re not left exposed if your internet connection drops. You should also look out for privacy policy and terms of service which makes it clear of what logs and details kept by the provider.

To make it easier for you to choose the best Android VPN app, we have listed the best ones below which you can choose from.

 

Best Android VPN Apps in 2020

NordVPN

Best Android VPN Apps in 2020

NordVPN is the first Android VPN app in our list, it is one the most popular VPN with over 10 million+ downloads and a high google rating. It remains one of the most recognized brands in the VPN field. Part of that brand recognition is based on its intuitive design.

NordVPN has some notable strengths including ‘Double VPN’ technology which passes your connection through two separate VPN servers, as opposed to just the one, for an extra layer of security (there are only a certain number of Double VPN servers, though). NordVPN also has a ‘zero logs’ policy (audited by PricewaterhouseCooper no less), meaning it doesn’t track the user’s online activity.

Download NordVPN

 

Surfshark

Surfshark is one of the cheapest VPN out there and that have made it attract a lot of attention. Considering the pricing, you might think it will lack quality but that’s not the case, it still doesn’t lack in the quality department and so is the Android app too.

Surfshark offers an interface that is surprisingly intuitive for first-time users. Its four-tab design elegantly conceals a host of privacy tools and connection options, highlighting a single-click connection button on the app’s landing screen.

Quickly access one of Surfshark’s multihop connection option — one of its most promising features, which jumps your connection through multiple countries to hide your trail — through its main location-selection screen, with no need to rummage through the app’s VPN settings. Surfshark also gets bonus points for making its customer support options readily available, including its help ticket feature and user guide library.

Download Surfshark

 

ExpressVPN

Best Android VPN Apps in 2020

ExpressVPN has many features to like about and the mobile app is extremely user-friendly, straightforward and offers more advanced options.

Some of the features you will see in ExpressVPN includes excellent location picker, insecure network detection and a kill switch to improve privacy and security.

According to the company, its network is powered by a TrustedServer technology, to ensure that there are never any logs of its users’ online activities. In the privacy world, ExpressVPN has a strong track record, having experienced a server seizure by authorities which proved their zero-log policy true at the time. The ExpressVPN also makes it possible for you to make payment with bitcoin and that makes it stand out from the rest.

Download ExpressVPN

 

IPVanish

The IPVanish app is another VPN app that offers great options such as obfuscation and split tunneling. It has also added that previously missing kill switch, a standard feature which instantly shuts down the internet connection incase the VPN drops (to prevent your true IP from being revealed).

IPVanish VPN offers amazing download speed and there is no logging of user’s activity in this app, plus you get 256-bit AES encryption with the OpenVPN protocol, along with 24/7 customer support.

Download IPVanish

 

What can you do with with an Android VPN

They may have started life as a way primarily for businesses to connect to remote sites and other offices, but VPNs have proved themselves as a fantastically versatile piece of kit over the last few years.

First thing’s first, they act as an excellent first line of defence alongside Android antivirus in protecting yourself when online. As referenced above, the nature of their encrypted tunnelling and ability to keep your IP address secret makes them a wonderful way to keep cyber criminals at bay – no more worrying about online banking and shopping while using unfamiliar networks. All these VPNs have free trials.

The Google’s new Android operating system known as the Android 11 is now stable and official. Google Pixel devices have started getting update for the new operating system but it’s going to take months for other smartphone manufactures like Samsung, Oppo, Realme, Xiaomi and others to start sending Android 11 updates to their smartphones.

The Android 11 looks similar to Android 10 but packs a lot of new features when you compare the both and that makes it a worthy upgrade to its predecessor. So I will be walking you through this new features of Android 11 that makes it stand out.

Although, the list of new features we have in this article does not cover all the features of Android 11. What’s here are the major features all users should know about in order to have a knowledge of how powerful the latest Android operating system is.

 

Top Features of the Android 11 Operating System

Below are the top features of the new Android 11 operating system which gives an insight of the new OS.

1. Conversation Notifications

Conversation Notifications are now grouped in Android 11, there are three notification categories which consists of Conversation, Alerting and Silent.

Apps with notifications fall under “Conversation” header. The conversation category houses all your conversations from apps where you directly communicate with people, including text messages and chat apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook and others.

Alerting and Silent categories acts the same way they do in Android 10. Any app you turned its notifications silent will appear in the silent category. This categories just makes it easy for you to locate your notifications on your device and enables you not to miss any notification related to your important daily interactions.

 

2. Notification History

The notification history feature captures all the notifications that enters in your smartphone, thereby making it possible for you to find notifications that you may have mistakenly swiped away.

Although, by default this feature is not enabled, so your messages won’t be saved until you enable it in your phone’s settings by following this simple step: Settings>Apps & Notifications>Notifications>Notification history. When you are there, just toggle the feature on. You will now be able to see your notifications by viewing your notification history in that same section.

What makes this feature very handy is that you can see all the messages that enters into your phone, even the ones that are totally silent. So you don’t have to worry about losing any notifications.

3. Chat bubbles

Chat bubbles is another handy feature in Android 11. This feature appeared first in Android 10 but Google didn’t prioritize them enough, after the stable version was unveiled, it disappeared.

The chat bubble works similarly like Facebook Messenger app in Android. If you have ever used Facebook messenger, you will notice a chat-head that appears on your smartphone that overlays on top of every other apps thereby allowing you to quickly access the chat by tapping on the chat icon. That’s exactly how chat bubble works in Android 11.

It works natively for all messaging apps in your smartphone and like the Notification History feature, it is not enable by default. You can enable it by heading to Settings > Apps & notifications > Notifications > Bubbles and toggle it on.

 

4. Screen Recorder

Android 11 comes with a native screen recorder, so you don’t have to go and download third-party apps to perform your screen recording functionality for you.

You can locate the native Screen Recorder by swiping down your notification shade, and you will see it in the quick settings tiles. Tap on it to start recording. On starting, it shows you options like, whether your screen-taps should be recorded and if it should also capture audio.

When you are done and want to stop the recording, swipe down your notification drawer and tap the screen recording notification and it will automatically stop. You can tap on it to view it, share, edit or delete immediately.

 

5. Redesigned Media Player

The music notification controls you see whenever you play music and swipe down your notification bar in Android 10 has been redesigned in Android 11.

In Android 11, these music control has been integrated into the Quick Settings sections alongside your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth tiles which you will be able to see when you swipe down from the top of your screen. The music controller now shows you cover art, basic controls and on which system the media is playing. When you pull the menu more down, you will be able to see more features such as giving a music thumbs up without opening the music player. You can also be able to swipe away the music player up there if you don’t want it anymore.

6. Smart Device Controls

This another handy feature from Google which allows you do even more amazing things with your device. This feature can be accessed when you long-press the power button of your smartphone.

In Android 10, what you see when you long-press your power button is options to power off or restart your device but in Android 11 it’s different. You will see a quick access to your default Google Play payment method you want in your next contactless transaction to use and below you will also see buttons connected to your various smart home products.

These buttons allows you to toggle on or off your smart home devices such as lights, televisions, Air conditions etc. You can add only six devices to this field and the field can be customized by tapping the triple dots on the right in the power menu.

 

7. Native Dark Mode Scheduling

These feature was introduced in Android 10 which you can only turn it off and on but in Android 11, this feature has been upgraded enabling you to schedule when you want the dark theme to appear.

In Android 11, you can schedule your dark theme by choosing whether to turn it on or off when the sun sets or rises. There is also an option to set up a custom time for dark mode activation.

8. Pin Apps in Share Menu

This feature will be useful for those that usually struggles to locate the app they want to use whenever they want to share something in their smartphone.

In Android 11, you can now pin your apps to your share sheet in order to access them easily when you want to share something. The main purpose of this feature is to enable the user to control which apps appears at the top list whenever they want to share something.

When you access the share menu, tap on app in the app list and you can pin whatever you’d like to the top.

9. One-time App permissions

Google added this feature in Android 11 to enable users have more control over privacy and security than ever before.

In Android 10, whenever you want to install an app it asks you if you want to grant the app permissions to access certain components of the phone like camera, GPRS, audio player and others but in Android 11 you have option to force an app to ask for permission for every single time it want to use any component of your device. Which means granting this apps permissions only when you want to use them.

Google made it in a way that after a user have granted an app permission for the session, once the app is closed, Android revokes that permission.


The above aforementioned features are the top features Google packed into Android 11 to make it more user friendly and I think this features will really be handy for users.

Glo is the only Nigerian owned telecom service and one of the largest data providers in the country. As the countries very own telecom service, they tend to offer the cheapest data plans compare to MTN, Airtel and 9mobile.

Although, Glo being the grandmaster of data, some users have complained about their poor network coverage in some areas, especially areas that has shortage of their network satellite pole but Glo is working tirelessly to make sure they reach out to those areas and with the introduction of their 4G LTE which offer superfast connectivity, it has gone a long way in solving that issue.

In this article I will be walking you through different Glo data plans currently available to their subscribers, so if you are seeking for such information, you are at the right place but before we go into that, let’s see how you can subscribe to Glo data plans.

 

How to Subscribe To Glo Data Plans

There different ways you can subscribe/purchase Glo Data Plan which includes:

  • By using their USSD code *777#, which very fast and convenient to purchase any of your favourite data plan.

  • By purchasing directly through their High-Speed Internet (HSI) Portal. The Site also allows you to view your data usage, share and gift data and the beauty of it is that you can view the portal without having data on your SIM.
