False alarm. I think the situation is grossly exaggerated.

CSTR2: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.
|Politics / Re: Pay Your Workers Now, Buhari Orders Governors by dustydee: 3:23pm On Jun 29|
barcanista: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.
|Politics / Re: Pay Your Workers Now, Buhari Orders Governors by dustydee: 3:09pm On Jun 29|
barcanista: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.

It's called data protection. You don't give out someone's data anyhow. Saharareporters should know this since they are based in the USA.

tolaolu:That email has failed to resolve my issue for close to a year now. They have been stealing money from my account every month and I asking for justification for the fee (access fee) but they were unable to and when i insisted, the referred me the CBN guideline where I discovered that the fee and another one I was charged sometime ago (maintenance fee) is illegal and unauthorised. I pointed it to them and they are yet to get back to me.
|Politics / Re: APC/NASS Crises: Observation On The Major Players by dustydee: 11:14am On Jun 26|
barcanista: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.
|Politics / Re: APC/NASS Crises: Observation On The Major Players by dustydee: 11:00am On Jun 26|
barcanista: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.

Wow. How did he acquire those properties? I heard he was broke as at 2011 I hope he doesn't squander his wealth again. Wait o, where is that pickup going to? Hope it's not Ogun state because I doubt if that thing can travel as far as Gwagwalada.

|Politics / Re: APC/NASS Crises: Observation On The Major Players by dustydee: 9:37am On Jun 26|
barcanista: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.

|Politics / Re: Oby Ezekwesili Discredits Ex Minister's Claim That GEJ Left $30bn In Treasury by dustydee: 6:50pm On Jun 24|
barcanista: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|
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.

barcanista: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.

Oh, ICPC or EFCC may be able to help have you tried sending them an email?
