Something isn't adding up
If you are patient enough read through this article by one Dr. Kazeem Bello
NIGERIA'S ECONOMIC ISSUES!!!
The Etisalat Example...
The Abu Dhabi Government that owned Etisalat pulled the company out of Nigeria last week and gave the Nigerian ex-partners 7 days to change its name and drop its Trade name. That has been complied with. Etisalat Nigeria changed the name this past week. The news information about this I monitored on my travel to Dubai on the local news which indicated that the Nigerian Etisalat claimed it invested over $20 billion on equipment and facilities in Nigeria. The news Analyst from Dubai Business New Network TV insisted that it is not possible. The parent company invested $13 billion in Gulf Area to attract over 40 milllion subscribers, with high world class services , how can Etisalat Nigeria invest $20 billion for 22 million subscribers with epiletic services and a debt ridden company?
The Abu Dhabi home office is struggling to remove the negative effect of the news on the company's stock market performance. It is being very difficult becuase the numbers are not adding up. The questions in Abu Dhabi is what does Etisalat Head quarters know about the mammoth fraud that prevailed in Etisalat Nigeria? How can the company claim to have spent so much in investment and infrastructure and yet come out with huge debts?
While Etisalat Group is facing serious backlash at home over this monumental fraud, in Nigeria, our CBN is not even asking any question to unravel why the company suddenly went bankrupt. Instead, our CBN and Ministry of Finance from the above are stuggling to take over the company's debts and pass it to the unsuspecting tax payers under the umbrella of the debt ridden AMCOM.
The Chairman of the Board and all Board members of the defunct Etisalat Nigeria resigned and walked away free leaving Nigerians with another private sector mismanaged debt ridden company.
Actaully, the major reason for my worried contribution here is on the Banking System in Nigeria and the financial mess we may have found ourselves in. Many Nigerians may not know this for a fact because the authorities will never tell you the truth, just like it took several years of noise for the NNPC to admit that the corporation is debt ridden and bankrupt. The Government of Nigeria will not admit it that the CBN of Nigeria is currently running at a Deficit Financial Model. This is called a DEF Model operations in Central Banking structure and practice. For references, you can google " Greece Monetary Collapse" and also the great fall in Brazilian financial system in the 90's. The CBN is almost at those crescendo from all indications going by several body languages, utterances and news from the international financial circle.
The CBN may not be able to cover import bills for more that 15 days from now as we speak which is a huge red flag! The CBN is currently not in any position to bail out the Government in any form due to distress in its liquidity-money creation matrix. CBN cannot perform its role as lender of last resort to the Government of Nigeria as we speak, a major function of Central Banking system. This may be the reason why last week, the Hon Minister of Finance addressed a press conference to tell Nigerians that they are in trouble but most Nigerians just did not understand how to interpret her unspoken words. She said clearly that Government will have to aggressively borrow money from abroad to implement the 2017 budget. Her reason was predicated on the wrong and super inferior analysis that Nigeria has a low debt-capital ratio hence there are rooms for more external debts. We better find a way to stop her from running a huge debt that OBJ was able to clear up during his regime but was kept low during Jonathan's regime due to oil windfall which makes borrowing unnecessary then.
Now with dissapointing and falling oil prices, low income-revenue generation by Government, NNPC totally broke running at huge deficits, CBN's inability to bail out Government, we seem to have no choice than to go back to external borrowing at premium at all cost.
Something is pathologically wrong with the Nigerian system. I have written about this in early December 2016 when the budget estimates came out. I pointed to the totally wrong budget appropriation and tagged it a budget of " Economic Contractions". I mentioned that by 3rd quarter of the year, the bubble will burst if something is not done and the Economy may slide into a full blown depression far worse than recession. It is not known what the facts are right now because there are various attempts to hide facts and give erroneous figures to the unsuspecting public. The situation is really bad based on International Analysts facts and figures especially with perceived unadmitted dire financail crises at the CBN. We may see an Econimic Emergency Bill very soon showing up at the desk of the Senate President but with the current face off between the Acting President and the Senate leadership, it is doubtful if such required bill will ever come to surface. That will be an instrument for the " hawks" in the Senate to roast the Acting President and blackmail him further of incompetence. In the fight between two giant elephants, the grass will have to pay dearly and suffer for it. Nigerians will grow in more poverty, no power, no infrastructure, high inflation, and low economic activities and no salaries for work done.
Back to the Etisalat case, this is the fact of the matter and CBN has not deemed it fit to raise any probe on the huge bank lendings to one single company without adequate collateral. Indeed what asset does Etisalat own aside from its license that will be worth the amount of debts being cited? I don't live in Nigeria but at least on my visits, I have not seen any such assets except power masts all over the place.
The same Nigerian Banks gave billions to all the debt ridden GENCOs AND DISCOs with no collateral and yet we have no power. Again, I have written on this issue before. How the power system in Nigeria was defrauded by the collusion of the so-called investors, Nigerian Banks and some officials in the defunct FGN. Nigerians are very prayerful people, we are still trooping to the worship places to pray for steady power supply when some are swimming in billions from the fraud in the sector. Our dream for steady power supply is daily becoming a mirage, to say the least.
The other day, I was having a discussion with a Chinese group of investors on telephone and internet network projects. They mentioned that with about $5 billion dollars in investment in highly powerful telecom equipments and satellite infrastructure, they will supply over 120 million in Nigeria with highly efficient phone and internet network service with super easy, small and latest technology. So why is Etisalat with $20 billion in investment not able to supply good phone and internet network service in Nigeria? Yet poor Nigerians are paying for poor services and will again pay the company's debt through our taxes.
Nigeria needs a fix!!!

Haba, the debt is too much oooooo. When all they keep doing with their profit is paying Etisalat Ambassadors who has nothing to offer back and also embezzlement from top managers. Glo Ambassadors still chopping their own money while MTN quickly backed out of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire when they are almost bankrupt.
Business is about proper planning and one must not bite more than he can chew at once. Wishing the new investors good luck.

The fraud that was pulled by using Etisalat as a Special Purpose Vehicle to enjoy multinational bank loans is the kind of fraud I will like to commit.
Now another investor is coming in and the cycle will continue. This is what happens when you have idiots in government houses. Minister of Finance that can not look a man in the eye and tell the truth without getting wet. And a telecoms regulatory commission that partners with fraudulent Telcos to steal from consumers.
Even the African Gods like Sango, Amadioha and Chukwu Akike Abiama has abandoned us, Jehovah and Allah boys are also pulling 10% and other commissions out of the economy every other Sunday.
Is this a country ?

Cogratulations to the new management of 9mobile.
Sincerely speaking, the etisalat debt issue is the main reason foreign investors are scared of committing their funds into Nigeria.
With unstable exchange rate yet we found it easy for some privileged few to get dollars at a ridiculous rate.
Who in the right sense will want to pay such humongous debt just under 10years.
|Re: $1.2bn Debt: New Investors Take Over 9mobile In 6 Months by Nobody: 4:03pm On Jul 26, 2017|
The East should have this oh.....
Etisalat ( now 9mobile) - Outsider (Best - Developers needed to sustain )
MTN - Outsider (Good)
Airtel - Outsider (Fair)
Glo - West (extremely poor)

Will the new investors be given the same terms as Etisalat? If not, why did they not shift ground before it got to this point?
