CSTR2:
And you think financial aid is what Nigeria needs right now?
G-7 is the most industrialized nations in the world for fucck sakes.
They created the asian tigers like south korea, japan e.t.c. by sending to them a huge package of industrial and military aids.
This is the kind of package buhari should be fighting for, not peanuts that will get wasted in the hands of almajiris in govt.
Did he say he asked for financial aid? Go and read his speech today and you'll realise that the aid is going to come in form of Military hardware and possibly training, hospital equipment and so on. No one is talking about cash here even though in some cases money will be required.

And what makes you feel that the G7 have funds to throw around? Do you think any G7 country will use their scarce resources to help one african man fix his country? Aid from G7 doesn't mean that they are taking over our problems. What Buhari is doing is shifting his responsibility to G7.
This is not the first time they have been sending aid to Nigeria. The UK I know has budgetary provision for aid to poor countries. Their renewed zeal to send aid to us is not unrelated to the person(integrity) of MBuhari. Past governments have been unable to account for aids sent to them. If you don't want the government to receive aid from the G7, please suggest ways they can bridge the funding gap to rebuild the infrastructure in the North-East.

Is buhari the President of Nigeria has Nigeria lost her independence to the G7? Is Buhari the G7 Representative in-charge of Nigeria? What doe he mean by the emboldened? As in the G7 are now uncle sam to fix infrastructures in Nigeria?

Now I see why Buhari is yet to appoint a minister. He's the G7 Minister in-charge of Nigeria Ministry and not the President.
Unfortunately I quite agree with you. That statement didn't sit well with me, I guess it is the way he said it. Aid from the G7 is always welcome especially now that we have shortage of funds.

There is nothing wrong in Saraki and Dogara standing for SP and Speakership. In fact, I supported them on party line. The SP and Speaker are for the whole house. Now Saraki and Dogara ought to allow the whole APC caucus elect their House leaders
I did not say there was anything wrong with it, what was wrong was Saraki gifting the Deputy Senate presidency to the PDP so as to achieve his aim. In doing that he also betrayed Ali Ndume his proposed deputy. I guess that is why he is trying hard to placate him now.

North Alone= 191
And you think all of them voted for him? In any case, the most popular member among the PDP caucus won but in this case both the speaker and the senate president were not popular among their party colleagues they had to reachout to the opposition to achieve their goals which is not bad except that Saraki in doing that threw his party under the bus. That action of his (Saraki's) is enough for well meaning Nigerians not to ever trust him again.

The PDP guys that supported the rebellious Tambawal/Ihedioha were from the North. They had the guts to do that because the SW base of Mulikat (APC Reps) deserted her and gave support to the NE Tambawal. They took advantage of that. If APC hadn't interfered, Mulikat would have contested unopposed or floor Tambawal
How many Reps are from the North? Tambuwal got 252 votes so where did the rest come from? Akande got 90 votes.

3.APC Deserve No Sympathy
APC rode on propaganda and blackmail. It is a gathering of people of different ideologies, different worlds and men of questionable integrity. It isn't filled with men with common goals like what a political party should be. It is filled with men whose sole ambition was to form a consortium to send Jonathan back to Otuoke and GRAB power. APC as a party also encouraged rascality and impunity in the last National Assembly. APC commended and encouraged Tambawal and the 7 rascals PDP Governors for their anti-party activities. It is a shame but the APC encouraged impunity and even rewarded it by giving them political fortune. Now that APC is at the receiving end of the whole thing, and even receiving worse, I don't think it deserve any symparthy. It is a shame that the presiding officers of both Chambers are hell-bent on by-passing common sense just to subvert the interest of majority of the party. At least in 2011 the PDP had their way in choosing the four principal offices when they lost the two presiding offices due to APC instigated rebellion in the House. I understand the plight for the APC but I have no sympathy for the party. I hope they put their act in order.
I disagree with the bold part. The Opposition then was not in a position to determine the speaker of the house at that time going by the level of support Tambuwal and Mulikat had. Most of the PDP reps were in support of Tambuwal and even if the other ACN and CPC members had supported Mulikat, she would have still lost to Tambuwal. Also, the opposition to PDPs choice was from majority of PDP members in the first place unlike the current scenario where the Speaker and the senate president rode on the back of the opposition even though majority of their party members did not want them.

Nairaland / General / 5 Surprising Facts About Facebook by dustydee: 8:38am On Jun 26
Few things in this world are bigger than Facebook (FB). Since its launch in 2004, the social-networking site has grown to epic proportions—it now has 936 million daily active users and over 10,000 employees. Mark Zuckerberg is on track to soon become one of the ten richest people in the world.

While you’re likely very familiar with the site, we’ve compiled some interesting info that you might not know about Facebook and its founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Below are five facts about Facebook that might surprise you:

1. Facebook now has a market cap of $249 billion, and as of Tuesday the company is officially larger than Walmart (WMT), which has a $233 billion market cap. The social media site has replaced the big box retailer as one of the 10 largest companies in the S&P 500 (^GSPC). By revenue, Walmart is still the largest company worldwide with a $476 billion in sales, blowing Facebook’s $12.5 billion out of the water.

Mark Zuckerberg, however, is now richer than the richest member of the Walton family.

2. Facebook employs non-traditional recruiting methods. In 2005, Chris Putnam, a college student attacked Facebook with a virus that made its pages resemble MySpace. Instead of taking legal action, Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz began messaging with Putnam and eventually persuaded him to drop out of school and work at Facebook as an engineer.

3. Facebook treats hackers and programmers well. The company encourages users to look for bugs on the website and rewards people who find them with a prize of at least $500, often more. In 2014, the company paid out $1.3 million to 321 bug-catchers.

4. Facebook goes the extra mile to protect its brand. The company owns about 1900 domain names including the following:
•IHateTheFacebookLikeButton.com
•LikeButtonSucks.com
•LikeSucks.com
•FacebookCreditsSuck.org
•FBCreditsSuck.org
•IHateFacebookCredits.com

They also own FB.com and the domain names for common misspellings of Facebook.

5. Mark Zuckerberg’s Hungarian Sheepdog, Beast, currently has 2.1 million followers on Facebook. Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, run the page and post photos of the shaggy white dog regularly

Politics / Re: Oby Ezekwesili Discredits Ex Minister's Claim That GEJ Left $30bn In Treasury by dustydee: 6:50pm On Jun 24
barcanista:
Don't get me wrong. I never said the government should withdraw from the reserve. My argument is against Oby's position that makes it appear like the $30b in the reserve belongs to entities other than the FG. Every country needs reserve, in fact, this majorly precipitated the creation of ECA/SWF. The ECA/SWF was/is meant to be the next port of call should the country experience embarrassing financial crises. But the Governors filed a lawsuit in the SC and even threatened the GEJ led government to share it. The money was share and a leftover of $2billion is left.

What is the argument of Oby here? Is it that the ER belongs to another entity or what? When Buhari said treasury is virtually empty, what does he mean? Isn't he aware that the earnings of the FG is not even enough to meet statutory obligation due to fall in oil price, hence, they have to exhaust them and even borrow? I would have taken Buhari and Oby serious IF the Reserve is depleted.


NB: I am against spending monies in Reserve whether ECA or ER
You seem to have misunderstood her. She said external reserve is money that has been spent already (FG exchanged it for naira or other currencies). Hope you are not suggesting that if the President needs money he can dip into the external reserve and spend? If that is what you are insinuating, then I give up.
Politics / Re: Oby Ezekwesili Discredits Ex Minister's Claim That GEJ Left $30bn In Treasury by dustydee: 4:46pm On Jun 24
barcanista:
According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), foreign reserves consist of official public sector foreign assets that are readily available to, and controlled by the monetary authorities, for direct financing of payment imbalances, and directly regulating the magnitude of such imbalances, through intervention in the exchange markets to affect the currency exchange rate and/or for other purposes.”
www.thisdaylive.com/articles/2007-2012-movement-in-foreign-reserves-account/138991/
Please read that article!


Thanks for the link. The extracts below seem to contradict your positionon the external reserves:
Rewane explained that excess crude account is usually included in the external reserves account, adding that the excess crude is the naira equivalent of the dollar amount. He added that the external resources are made up of the federal government money and money that belong to individuals.

Whenever a ministry or agency of government needs to incur approved expenditure in foreign currency (e.g. payment of goods and services, settlement of external debt, etc) it must provide the naira equivalent to the CBN before the Bank sells the required foreign currency”.
Where will the agencies get the Naira equivalent from if their allocations have been pilfered or reduced? Or will the CBN call the Per secs and say "come and take dollars"?

Enweghara explained, “Let us not forget that out of our so-called ‘’impressive’’ reserves that by late January stood at $45.3 billion, $13 billion is hot money belonging to some foreign speculators, who could withdraw their money anytime they discover better arbitrage elsewhere in the world.
If the government decided to spend from the reserves, how will the CBN pay individuals and corporate entities that makeup part of the reserves? (And by the way of the $30bn, how much belongs to private and institutional investors?)

So, you can see why in the real sense, it is not all that as impressive as it is falsely displayed. Again, another fact is that there are some bonds that are about maturing and it is from our so-called ‘’impressive’’ reserves account those debts should offset.


If the government decides to draw from the reserves, how will it payback the bonds it took when they mature?

Having read the link you posted, I agree with Madam Oby and I think that Ex Minister needs to read and understand how the external reserves work.
Thank you for the link and I hope you read it too.

That woman just de blow BIG grammar de confuse people. Chai...Na wa o. It is worthy to note that the Governors acted against professional advice to force the exPresident to share the monies in the Excess Crude Account. All 36 states combined got N3trillion from the share of ECA between 2011 and 2014 ALONE! They were even demanding that the $2billion leftover in the ECA be shared of which Jonathan refused. In a twist of event, Buhari has agreed to share the money.
Are you suggesting that the FG should go to the CBN and request for part of the $30 dollars just like that without offering anything (Naira or other currency) in return? Please educate me on how the foreign reserve works.
