The current exchange rate good for Nigerians that are into local production

1,087 views
PMB gets the credit for this whether or not the current crazy exchange rate is an intended consequence of some of his policies. We have resumed the manufacturing of inverters locally using everyday components and parts for Nigerians thanks to the ever increasing price of imported inverters due to the naira-dollar exchange rate issue. We stopped building these inverters sometime last year because the prices of our inverters appeared to be high since a lot of......

The media and the government should provide the facts and allow us to analyse them

The so called arms deal scandal could be PDP campaign funds that was entrusted with Dasuki to distribute and once it is established that all the funds being talked about all the while is less than GEJ's, Dasuki's or both of their security votes all the noise about arms deal will die a natural death and nothing will come out of it. I am sill trying to figure out why the FG wanted to try Dasuki......

The supreme court ruling on Wike encouraging

829 views
Supreme court judges are not fools and they have their careers and names to protect so even if the president wants the supreme court to give judgement in any matter brought before the court the case must be such that you have a 50-50 chance of the verdict going either way. But when the case is straight forward especially when there are similar cases that have been concluded already using specific logic and reason all the......

You cannot successfully fight corruption when security votes remains an integral part of our political system

If prayers by imams and community leaders could help maintain peace and prevent loss of lives and properties then it means the NSA would have delivered on guaranteeing peace and security if the ONSA reached out to these people and even paid them, not so? So, when we say money was given out to religious leaders for prayers and the prayers worked as we conducted general elections in the North East without problems and attacks what......

Fight crime by fighting poverty

903 views
When jobs are lost and businesses shut down more and more people cannot guarantee what they will eat to remain alive whether as the bread winners or dependents and what this means is that more and more people will take to crime to survive because you don’t expect active men and women to sit at home and starve to death just because they cannot get jobs or start a business of their own. Now, does it......

The society has a role to play in the fight against corruption

1,021 views
A poor man that does odd jobs to survive and feed his family has integrity and deserves to be respected by the society. A rich man that steals other peoples money and drives the best cars, lives in a mansion and wears the most expensive clothes is nothing but a thief that should be despised and ostracized by the society. In Nigeria, a lot of people don’t even bother to know or question the source of......

What is the need for formal education if the product cannot rise above the level an illiterate is operating from?

847 views
I feel very sad when I see a Nigerian graduate thinking, reasoning, arguing and analyzing issues like an illiterate. What’s the need for formal education if the product cannot rise above the level an illiterate is operating from? Why waste at least 15 years of your first 20 years acquiring education you obviously do not need when you could have become an expert mechanic, carpenter, native doctor or bricklayer? Some people pass through school but school......

Inconsistent forex policy from CBN harming businesses

914 views
What will happen to all the businesses that folded or packed up due to the forex restriction that just got relaxed by the CBN? Will they get any help from the FG? When small businesses suffer the economy will definitely suffer because they are the main engine room for development. To grow an economy we don’t need inconsistent policies and we shouldn’t encourage any form of trial and error by the policy makers.

Commonsense is not that common and I will tell you why

875 views
When some patriotic Nigerians complained about the disregard to court orders and the need for the government to respect the decisions of the courts some of the perpetual defenders of everything APC called the people asking sensible questions names. Today, a judge has asked magistrates to stop granting remand orders from EFCC. You cannot use illegality to deal with illegality. I am yet to see any sane Nigerian that supports corruption at least openly yet I......

Critics are nation builders whereas praise singers are nation destroyers

812 views
Critics have a much higher value than praise singers will ever have so any government that wants to perform well must pay attention to criticisms and test them for validity and ignore or even caution senseless perpetual praise singers that lack the capacity to even understand the difference between right and wrong. Critics are nation builders. Praise singers are nation destroyers. Anyone that praises your every action whether right or wrong should be avoided because such......

Most Nigerians are pretenders

771 views
We pretend a lot in Nigeria and at the end of the day we usually suffer the consequences. We refused to condemn 419 when it was seen as just another avenue of making money until it started affecting us negatively. We sort lecturers and even pay invigilators to help our kids in school exams then turn around to accuse and blame government for the poor system of education we have. Rather than get proper drivers and......

Do we really have 3 different exchange rates in Nigeria?

835 views
I carried out some payments this morning and realized that something was wrong with the exchange rate considering what was actually taken from the account. A $220.00 payment led to N62,452.59 being taken out of the account which comes to about N283.88/$1. Where is this coming from considering the fact that we are only aware of the official bank rate and black market rate? N199/1$ – official bank rate N265/1$ – black market rate N284/1$ –......

Is the naira being defended at all by the CBN or is it on a free fall?

835 views
Just got off the phone with someone from UBA head office who called and was trying to explain to me why they had to charge me N284/$1 when the official bank rate is N199/1$ and the black market is N261/$1. According to him, the official bank rate of N199/$1 is the subsidized rate from the Central Bank of Nigeria and the high N284/$1 is based on the real time exchange rate as dictated by the likes......

It is stupid and foolish for Nigerians to petition Obama asking Buhari to obey court orders

1,028 views
It is ok for Nigerians to criticize PMB for defending the flouting of court rulings because it is the right thing to do. However, it is stupid and foolish for Nigerians to petition Obama asking Buhari to obey court orders because it is a matter of inferiority complex and colonial mentality. Is Obama the president or head of Nigeria, Africa or the United Nations? Absolute nonsense from confused Nigerians that are suffering from overdose of low......
