Politics / Simple Way To Beat The New Fuel Price Hike Is Available Now by Barcholder: 2:35am On May 15, 2016
With the enormous uproar caused by the increase in fuel prices from #86.50 to #145 per litre, now is the perfect time for Nigeria to embrace the new product that has just hit the market.

Pay As You Go Solar!

Many people have commented that there should have been palliatives in place before the prices were hiked up. Afterall, how can people now afford to fuel their generators at #145 per litre, nearly 70% higher than before. There actually is already a brilliant alternative on the market, and one that will free you completely from the need to even visit a fuel station again.

From as little as #350 per day, every single Nigerian can have guaranteed 24 hours power to their homes, and never worry about NEPA or high fuel costs again. The rush for the solution had already been extremely high even before the price hike, but the last couple of days has been huge for new customer sign ups.

We very quietly launched this programme several months ago, as we wanted to test the response, and it has grown rapidly purely by word of mouth referrals. In view of the recent event, we could no longer keep quiet to the public about what's available to them.

I want to use this forum to enter into an enlightened discussion with my fellow Nigerians about the very simple options available to them in terms of getting 24 hours power, and not being affected by the huge fuel price increase. This will not be used as a sales platform, as it contravenes the rules of Nairaland, but any sales enquiries can be taken offline.

So, I have fired the starting pistol, I look forward to an engaging discussion with any and everyone, and look forward to answering your questions.

Politics / Re: 30% Of Nigeria’s Fuel Supply Diverted-Kachikwu by Barcholder: 9:47pm On Apr 25, 2016
omohayek:
As long as there is a substantial gap between the "official" rate for petrol and the market rate, fuel smuggling will continue to thrive, no matter how sophisticated the counter-measures taken against it. Kachikwu knows this as well as anyone, but he'll have to keep pretending otherwise as long as his master in Aso Rock refuses to listen to reason.

Buhari has been urged multiple times now to deregulate the sector and privatize - not least by Kachikwu himself - but he stubbornly insists on doing things the same old way, while expecting the results to be better this time around. As bad as GEJ was, he at least knew better than to constantly second-guess his advisers and ministers.

That isn't the issue at all. The smuggling is to neighbouring countries where the price of fuel is at market rates, and therefore far higher than the subsidised rates of Nigeria. This has always, and will always continue to happen. I think we all know what the solution is, but I guess we communicated our feelings on that solution in 2012. So, lets just be silent and enjoy the consequences of that communication.

I put it to you all that scarcity is here to stay for the rest of the year. Quote me on that. I thought the scarcity was going to end of 7th April?
Politics / Re: 30% Of Nigeria’s Fuel Supply Diverted-Kachikwu by Barcholder: 9:41pm On Apr 25, 2016
The utter foolishness of this is staggering. Of course fuel gets diverted to neighbouring countries, you know why? Because the price of fuel in those countries is far higher there than it is here.

Guys, enough with all the foolish debates and ask yourselves three very simple questions. Is there scarcity of Diesel? And if not, why not? Finally, what is the average price of diesel across Nigeria?

The answer to the problem is blindingly obvious, and yet, and yet, it appears that we lack the basic intellectual capacity to grasp the issue and solve it. It's truly does reflect very badly on us all, our staggering inability to solve the most basic of problems. And yes, solving the fuel scarcity problem is actually a relatively simple one to solve.

greenpasture:


Well said. Good points. Respect

First human being after 3 pages of goats, let me add to yours, if we divest Dollars to yuan, our Foreign reserve will Quadruple because of exchange rate differential, since China is Nigeria's biggest trading partner, it is a good move.

2) America is a debt laden country, it won't be long before another bubble occurs like we saw in 2008, Donald Trump has said it severally, despite the criticism he gets from the establishment who want to downplay the real state of the US economy, never mind that Ted Cruz was one of the GOP senators who held Obama by the Jugular when they nearly defaulted on their loans.
we lost a lot of foreign reserve in the process during Soludo's economic magic era not any fault of ours but the fact that the economic melt down
weakened the dollar.
Most Nigerians don't seem to realize how badly our economy bleed with those Master cards and Visa they use. We lose money while America smile to the bank, never mind that the US shale revolution put us in this mess in the first place, it is unwise to run to them for help.
Even American corporations are all manufacturing in China so getting American goods with Yuan (A currency weaker than Naira) is the best deal ever.
The Issues we need to be discussing are how Washington will take it? definitely not lying down, Gaddafi's African dinar proposal landed him in 6ft, Buhari should understand that he just dealt a severe blow to the western economy, May God protect him for us when the hammer of washington falls.

3) The Chinese Yuan is very unstable, if the Chinese economy shrinks, we will lose a substantial sum in our overall Foreign reserve, I think that is why Buhari tied the exchange of goods and services as an addendum to the deal (smart move).

Sorry, but I'm forced to drop what I'm doing and respond to this. Your assertions are completely wrong on so many levels. Let me explain.

1. Exactly how does Nigeria's FX reserves quadruple overnight by moving to Yuan from USD? That's a nonsensical statement. How exactly will we earn money in Yuan? Does this trade agreement involve any form of reciprocity, that is, Nigerian companies can also sell into the large Chinese economy? Of course it doesn't. It's a one way street, they sell and we buy. All we will simply do is convert our Dollar earnings into Yuan at the prevailing FX Rate. More to the point, what is the value of having the bulk of our FX reserves in Yuan, a currency that's only accepted by China, versus Dollars, which is accepted in practically every country in the world?

2. Even Chinese companies themselves only accept Dollars in payment. Why? Because most countries neither trade in, or want to trade directly in Yuan, due to excessive Government manipulation of their currency

3. The only beneficiary of this move is the Chinese, because it means that our Foreign reserves are useless to us UNLESS we spend it with Chinese companies. This is a form of financial colonisation, as once it starts, it will be almost impossible to reverse it.

4. These so called loans we are getting come with stringent conditions, including the fact that the infrastructure projects must be carried out by Chinese Firms, using Chinese workers. So its a clever way for China to boost their local businesses directly, whilst at the same time getting someone else to pay for it.

This is a terrible deal, and is selling our sovereignty as a Nation. I'm so saddened by this. Anybody who replies to my comment by using the word wailer or any other associated word, symbolising opposition to the deal on the grounds of Political affiliation, is nothing but a fool.

We seriously are foolish people in this part of the world. I predict that very soon, we will adopt the Yuan as our national currency, and people will celebrate it. So tragically sad.

Guys, once and for all, save yourself the extreme stress and suffering of this ridiculous queuing for fuel to power your generators.

Get Pay As You Go Solar System today, and you will immediately have 24 hours light and not stress yourself anymore. For the price of as little as N350 per day, you can get 24 hours power for your basic appliances.

I want you to consider this - whilst the suffering is great on the majority of Nigerians are suffering badly right now, please also know that not everyone is suffering right now. I can tell you that there are people in this country enjoying 24 hours power from the sun as we speak. Educate yourselves on Solar Energy, and if you are interested, please contact me.

I can tell you that in 3 years of living in Nigeria, I've never owned a generator, and I've never been without light for even 1 minute.

Business / Re: Nigeria GDP Confirms What Central Bank Denies: Naira Hurts by Barcholder: 9:00am On Mar 11, 2016
persius555:
They want us to devalue the naira so as to make manufacturing costlier, thereby killing the local industry. Subsequently, they will take over our economy and dictate our policies. Angola yielded to the advice of IMF and today their economy is struggling to recover even as oil prices have dipped. If the CBN finally devalues and we remove import restrictions, its only a matter of time for coke to be sold for 200 naira.

I think you have got this completely the wrong way round. By devaluing, it makes our manufacturing CHEAPER, not more expensive. It means it becomes cheaper for export our goods overseas, as a Dollar buys more Naira. The reason things will become more expensive in the short term is because we import absolutely everything, so it will cost us much more. However, in the medium to long term, it will actually help our economy dramatically, as exports will increase.

Finally, your point about Angola and their Oil revenues is nonsense. Oil is sold in USD, therefore, devaluing their currency actually means that the oil revenues they receive has far more buying power than before.

You are simply wrong, even on my estate, I know at least 2 people who are almost in exactly the same position, and I know how difficult it is. American Oil companies are notoriously demanding, and they can really suck all the life out of you. In the beginning, you will be very excited about the salary they are paying you, but trust me, give it a couple of years of hard labour, and you will literally hate going to work every day.

The same is also true of a lot of the telecommunications companies right now as well. Pressure at work can be extremely damaging to a person's mind, body and psyche. So get it out of your mind that money is the cure to all ills in life, because its simply not true.

Everything is relative - what would you say if I told you that I know an American expat who recently quit his job with one of the major US Oil Companies in Nigeria, because the pressure of the job was so intense that he literally feared he was going to have a nervous breakdown. He was earning $500,000 per annum. Until very recently, when the regulations were changed, he was being paid in USD.

No amount of money is worth one's health, once that goes, no amount of money can ever bring it back. When you are lying on your deathbed, I promise you that for all the money you may have in the bank, you would gladly swap places with a broke, healthy person.

Money isn't everything bro, the sooner Nigerians in general learned that, the sooner will build a much better, friendlier, less aggressive society

Career / Re: He Earns More Than Half A Million Per Month Yet He's So Unhappy With His Job by Barcholder: 12:44pm On Dec 14, 2015
This is a dilemna very commonly faced in the UK, and indeed is one that I personally faced few years ago. Here is my carefully considered advice.

Most importantly, if he already has a business that is currently making N200k, that's extremely impressive given the fact that he can't be spending very much time on it due to his considerable work commitments. This tells me that if he actually focused on that business, there's no way he won't be making considerably more than N500k per month within a relatively short period of time.

His happiness is the most important thing, and no matter how much money you are being paid, misery is never a good thing. Most Nigerians, unfortunately, don't understand the value of life and all the other facets of it that truly bring us joy. The most valuable commodity in life is one's time, which is why Prison is the most commonly used form of punishment in the world - to restrict one's time and freedom.

That said, he will certainly have some difficulties in persuading his wife to go along with his plan to quit his job in favour of the business. This is a very common challenge and is one that must be navigated with care. Very few successful business men in the UK or USA today have not at one time or another, faced this challenge.

I can speak from experience and say that I once gave up a secure job in London paying me £150,000 per annum, in favour of the uncertainty of starting a new business. Looking back now, it was the best decision I've ever made in my life.

So, my advice is this - have a frank and open discussion with your wife, and explain to her how you plan to increase the income of your business from 200k to well over what you currently earn. Be persuasive, and mean every single word of it. Reassure her that you have what it takes to make a real success of the business, and ask her to trust your judgement on it, and continue to give you her unconditional support, because you will certainly need it, especially in the early days.

When you have her onside, go ahead and tender your resignation. The very best of luck to you my brother, I'm praying for your massive success.

I strongly agree with those calling for an alternative before a ban. If the power supply has improved considerably, the ban would have been a welcomed development. But as it stands now, it is the small businesses that will bear the burnt. May God help small businesses to survive this onslaught.

There already is an alternative to these generators, it's called Solar Energy, and that's the reason why Buhari has banned them. There will shortly be a very big push for Solar to replace these noisy and polluting generators, on a PAYG basis.

Anybody who wants guaranteed 24 hours power as a direct replacement to running their i better pass generators should contact Solynta. We are offering Pay as You Go Solar Installations for a fixed monthly cost of N7,000 per month.

Why is it almost impossible to have a constant electricity in Nigeria?

Because the leadership and even the masses are completely ignorant, thats why. There are many people in the country who enjoy constant and unbroken power for 24 hours every day, through the use of Solar Energy. The country basks in glorious, God given sunlight, showering us with vast amounts of energy daily, and all we have to do is tap that power by installing Solar Panels. But no, instead, we prefer to run generators, so enjoy.

I can tell you that in the 2 and a half years I've lived in Nigeria for, I've never owned a generator, and i've never been without power for even 1 second.

Business / Re: BVN- Temporary Restriction Of Your Account by Barcholder: 10:47am On Nov 02, 2015
The level of reasoning on here leaves a lot to be desired. Let me summarise in bullet points why its so important that everyone registers their BVN.

1. Nigeria does not have a Social Security (USA) or National Insurance (UK) system in place, which makes it impossible to identify people in Nigeria.

2. BVN registration is the way to remedy this situation, officially giving every Nigerian a formal identification

3. This will allow for a formal credit system to take hold in Nigeria, as lenders can officially verify each person, and create a formal credit referencing system in the process.

4. This will lead to a dramatic increase in bank lending, and also Foreign Direct Investment into the consumer financing space. All of which will dramatically improve the economy.

5. Nigeria is grappling with an insurgency problem, and it becomes possible to track and trace the financiers of Boko Haram if every single account has been formally identified. At the moment, money laundering in Nigeria is rife due to a lack of proper KYC on all account holders.

In short, it does nothing but highlight the stark ignorance and belligerence of Nigerians, that, after 18 months of regular reminders, as of today, more than 50% of all bank accounts have not had BVN verification. And yet, we are the very same people who scream every day about our lack of development.

Think about that for a second, and process the connotations of that. I have some further further questions for you:

1. Which consumes more power, residential homes or businesses?
2. What impact would you observe if all the available power was diverted to homes and away from businesses?
3. In your view, which is more important - power to homes or power to industry?

I have a tip for you - never enter into a technical argument with a person who's an expert in the field in question.

asuustrike2009:

How? Please explain by quoting me

Nigeria's power problem is going to be solved in exactly the same way that the telecommunications problem was solved. Distributed power solutions, primarily in the form of Solar Energy. Think, mobile telephones versus landline telephones.

Indeed, this trend has already started, and I can tell you that my company has done over 100 Off-grid Solar Power installations for customers in the last year alone. People are now sourcing their power directly from Solar and cutting off NEPA completely. I expect this trend to rapidly increase over the next 2 years, as the new NEPA tariffs kick in, and Nigerians begin to see just how expensive power really is. I simply cannot see the average middle class family being willing to pay N50,000 per month to NEPA for just 6-8 hours power per day.

No, instead, they will turn to Solar power providers who can guarantee them 24 hours power for less money that they will be paying to NEPA. I can also tell you with absolute authority that before the end of 2016, you are going to see a major advertising blitz hitting Nigerians, offering a Pay as You Go Solar Solution for every home. Nigerians will be able to get immediate guaranteed 24 hours power by just paying an upfront fee of N100,000, and then paying a fixed monthly fee of between 12 - 48K on average.

In exactly the same way the NITEL died, I fully expect to see the death of NEPA, as every Nigerian opts for a distributed power solution for their homes. Generation, Transmission and Distribution all at the point of use. No interface with a decrepid grid system that's beyond repair.

And the best part of all, this power revolution has already started, you just haven't noticed it yet. It will become very apparent to even the average person within 18 months. I can tell you that right now, Estate Developers are not connecting NEPA lines to their estates, but instead, are installing Solar Panels on each home, as it makes each unit far more attractive to the buyers, being that it comes with 24 hours power.

How do I know all this? Because, I'm the Founder and CEO of Nigeria's largest Solar Power Company, having launched it just 2 and a half years ago. The change people seek is already here, they just don't know it yet.

The entire power privatization is going to end up as a disaster, because demand for NEPA, at least from a residential and SME basis, is going collapse, as is the demand for generators.

Quote me on this in 5 years time.

Since Saturday morning till this moment, there has been no more than 6 hours power supply. FACT. I couldn't care less how your jaundiced, politically polluted brain takes that news, but its a fact and you won't silence me or anyone else who gives such testimony with your propaganda.

Further, I have several clients who live on Lekki Phase 1, and so I know for a fact that what you are saying is simply not true. Please, take your foolish political propaganda nonsense elsewhere.

I am expecting the APC goon to invade this thread and nd try hard to defend their master.

This is part of what you get when you have a super clueless leader.

1. Sell of those refineries.

2. Unbundle the oil industry and act only as the oil police. DPR.

3. Look for other viable sources of energy.

Dude, your suggestions are far too sensible to ever expect them to be carried out. Where do you think you are, in the UK?

God help Nigeria

Now you are talking from both sides of your mouth. Who cares about your puzzle? What matters to me is the improvement I have witnessed in such a short time and not the gimmick you are pulling over. Listen to the V.P during one of the power stakeholders meetings, I am more than convince that the megawatt will not only be improved and sustained but also the transmission line will adequately be worked on with corruption out of the way.

The fact that you don't care about my "puzzle" entirely proves my point, there's no further need to have this discussion with you.

NEPA is going to go the same way as NITEL. I beg of you, please save down my words, and quote them back to me in exactly 5 years time.

Have a great day
