Health / Re: I'm experiencing Unproductive Cough That has Lasted For 7days And Loss Of Voice. by deenee: 7:22pm On Oct 13
Hibiscus62:
Hi nairlanders, I need your help.

I started having cough seven days ago and I as well took some over the counter medications to sooth it (Erythromycin, Augmentin and a liquid one) . But it seems while I take the medications, the cough worsens especially at night. The cough is very dry and doesn't produce anything and it's mostly triggered by a funny sensation at the back of my throat.

I don't really experience any other symptom apart from loss of appetite.
I'm afraid of going to the hospital to avoid being kept in the isolation center for the suspicion/fear of covid.
Could this truly be Covid?
What should I do?

Mods, please my post needs a wide view.

While I want to wish you speedy recovery, please explain what am unproductive cough is?

Thank you

Dear Nairalanders, This is the first time I will commend Power holding company in Nigeria. For the past 3 months, we are been enjoying steady light here in Port Harcourt ( CHOBA, Rumuosi, Eluos, Alakahia/UPTH, Rumuekini etc). As in 48hours under the sun, under the rain. We have been enjoying this for the past 3 months now. When this started about 3 months ago, I was thinking Officer charge of our area was Sleeping or they plan to give us light we supposed to use for one week in just a day because we hardly experience 2hrs before.

So, are you enjoying the same thing in your area?

Kindly give us update of your area.


I hope you are paying your light bills in a timely manner as you are enjoying the light?

Food / Re: Inflation: What Is Happening Pls? by deenee: 2:03pm On Jul 21
ProJectAnatot:
The rate of inflation of general commodities especially food items is alarming to me angry. I have been in the southeastern part of the country since the end of January and some commodities like bread, soft drinks and even food have inflated by up to 50% since January. Please I am really confused about this situation.
And also surprisingly no one is talking about it..
Economists and analysts in the house is there any particular reason for this fast inflation... Is it oil?, naira? Incompetence? Or even corruption? Fulani herdsmen? flood? I am really being sincere with my question!

Good afternoon.

The reason is simple. We like to consume yet we don't produce what we like to consume.

Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Corruption - Edo State Power Distribution Company by deenee: 1:24pm On Jul 21
YakubuLagos:
Good day everyone.

I'm from Edo state to be precise.

The major problem we have presently is not just the FG alone but other bodies under the government.

I lived in an estimate of about 4 flats each. Fast forward to this day, we were using normal light (no prepaid). Along the line, my landlord introduced the prepaid meter for every flat, which was a welcome development.

Yesterday, I decided to recharge as usual. But I got an information that I can't recharge, and this prompt me to go to the NEPA office to laid a complain. On getting there, I was told that I have to pay #5000 before I can recharge and that is a new directive from the state government, which I was skeptical about. What annoyed me was the fact that, the payment is manual and not through the state or FG ban.

Since morning, I have been trying to call them but the phone line kept me on voice note.

Corruption is every corner, the system has gotten to a point where it cannot be saved.

This must get to the state government.

Were you owing on your post paid bill before a prepaid meter was installed?

Secondly all prepaid meters come with a pre loaded electricity credit that must be deducted from the first recharge by the customer

I live in the united states too, let me assure you that the Dangote refinery is in a very dicey and delicate situation, nobody is saying the refinery will not make money but the projections may not hit their proposed height cos of the impact of the EV revolution, for instance, the Tesla s Plaid is electric Ev which is essentially a 4 door family car is much faster than the fastest Ferrari sports car and it does so with much better mileage and the maintenance is far, far, far lower........................ A new progressive government led by a southerner may not be so supportive of Dangote's profligate adventure.


I have test driven the VW ID4 and I tell you the motor engined car is in trouble.................


All that you have said is correct but you are still mixing apples snd oranges and acceptance of an EV revolution has nothing to do with the tribe of the person in power in Nigeria.

For EVM to make sense, there has to be infrastructure to support it in Nigeria and Africa. Unfortunately, the infrastructure deficit won't allow this. Unless, as I mentioned earlier- back to back consistent investment in the infrastructure outlay which will take at least a decade to bring to fruition.

Secondly, what is the purchasing power of the average Nigerian/African? Less that 2% of the entire population will be able to buy a EMV ( new or tokunboh at an price range of USD40k-USD120k!)

We always make this mistake of drawing quick straight line comparisons between Africa and the "developed nations"

You haven't talked about charging ports, electricity, security, good roads, etc and you think it's Electric Motor Vehicle that the government (incumbent or incoming, irrespective of tribe) will face?-think again

As per Dangote, his target market is Africa same as he has focused his other companies in line with his Africa focused business operations model.

The refinery is currently valued at USD50billion if we prorate using the 20% minority equity investment from NNPC. That's already USD10billion into Dangote's pocket already. He plans to float shares on the NSE (about 15% and sell about10% to other strategic investors. With these deals alone, he would have made his money back even before the refinery starts work and still be a majority shareholder with 55% ownership!

God bless Dangote

Well said like the typical unthinking and slow to act African that you are! while richer countries are doubling down on the EV industry ..........you Africans are as usual marking time and twiddling your thumbs as the world leaves you behind ! Tell me which part of Nigeria's oil and gas sector with a mega billion-dollar investment that is not dependent on export proceeds.......crude oil? liquified gas or petrochemicals?...............the effective shelf life of that refinery is no more than 15 years or probably less.........and the clock started ticking since 2020.

Development happens at an uneven pace and I laugh when you people draw unrealistic comparisons and in the process mix apples and oranges.

For your information I don't even live in Nigeria and haven't been there in over half decade but I am always realistic with my growth projections.

Before we can begin to adopt the use of EMV as a mode of transport, there has to be adequate infrastructure and to get to that level of infrastructure efficiency will take at least 2 to 3 decades of intensive back to back investment. It goes beyond simply buying a EMV and putting g it on the road!

So trust when I say half a decade at least or more I know what I am saying!

Again Dangote's target market is not to export to the richer countries with their EV technology but service Africa as a continent. And EV tech or not oil will still have its place in the scheme of things.

It'll still be used to power heavy equipment and use for other purposes.


Every country has their own growth trajectory. In the past Egypt had one of the best building technologies evidenced by the construction of the pyramids, same applies to Greece, Rome and other past civilizations

You people just sit down and talk without content. Despite all the buhahaha. Toyota still sold three times more gas cars than Tesla in H1 2021 and this is just America alone!

Even with 15years shelf life he will still make his money. Bad belle people!

My point is simple. express your opinion without calling contrary opinions names. You an I have valid opinions as the saying goes a glass can be half empty or half full or better said "m" looks like w depending on the side your looking at it from. Dangote cement has not made cement cheaper in Nigeria rather more expensive hence his abnormal profits due to his monopoly of the product. How many additional jobs has he provided against the cement companies his monopoly has closed down. In case you Dont know cement in China is equivalent of N350 for 50kg.Dangote is selling same thing N2700. He has made so much money from poor Nigerian and has started buying cement companies allover Africa. He has made several times the cost of building his cement plant several times over . Dangote refinery will go same way but is like the prayers of Nigerians he has been cheating has caught up with him, he wants to inflict similar business profiteering on per litre of petrol sold in Nigeria but God will not allow him. Like the saying goes everyday for the thief but one day for the owner. Yahoo boys and Dangote are one and the same thing just that Dangote goes a step further by making people jobless, broke, indebted, homeless and hungry. Even yahoo boys are learners compared to Dangote . I have been telling people judgment is at hand and God has started paying people back in their own coin. How I wish an Ibeto family member becomes president of Nigeria then you will see how Africa's richest man will fade into oblivion. Anyways enjoy your weekend.

Nigeria is s capitalist economy not a socialist one where government moderates or provides subsidy for the purchaes of items

Capitalist societies are built with a profit mentality driving them so it won't make sense to be a business man and do my business like I am running a charity. You need to understand this. Otherwise go and set up a business and be dashing people your goods on credit or for free.

Even the Ibeto you mentioned is a capitalist and driven by profit.

Reference:
What is all this nonsense.
Everyone knows the difficulty surrounding industrial investment. Everyone knows the high cost of doing business in Nigeria. Everyone knows the challenges around getting sensible credit in this country.

There is a refinery emerging and it will succeed at the end because the man has a track record of developing and sustaining industrial investment.

If a venture industrialist has tough challenges setting up shop it is rather an indictment of this country and its failed structures not him and it is a stern warning that the much needed economic development we earnestly seek will not happen if we cannot make the pastures green particularly for foreign investment who will be looking at Dangote's successes or failures as a barometer to their decisions about Nigeria.

Countries that earnestly seek investment bend over backwards with all sorts of economic stimuli from tax breaks, subsidies and lean credit to ensure it happens. It is not new.

It is only new to those who want total state control of our economy to promote their age old rent seeking nature that cannot see through this and see this through.

They should let this man and his refinery be abeg.

Guy that refinery will never be profitable buying oil from the international market. Pls don't kid yourself. What about the gas to power the facilities? Refineries are not as profitable as u think

He is not buying directly from Nigeria neither he has said that severally because he wants to avoid all the issues and inconveniences you people bring to business. He can go into a futures agreement where he can fix rates now for future supply. Oil supply plenty everywhere.

And the sale of by products from the refined crude and gas will be additional cash flow to support the revenue from refined crude.

Hello Oga. Please we have failing PR officers for the Dangote group on nairaland. First quote the law your talking about! And does the law take effect on uncompleted projects to the extent that $1billion will be spent impromptu. Liers every corner of Nigeria. How do you know no bank has called in their loan do you work for all banks or you work for Dangote group? Your just a paid PR officer how much are they paying you to peddle falsehood. Yes the writer complained of a lack of project management skills in the conception and delivery of the project which has resulted in unnecessary delays, you just said the first delay was because they increased the daily output from 450k to 650k and so they recalibrated the design. Why would Dangote arbitrarily change the design of a project of such scale does it look like a room and parlour he is building now look at how many "k" he can produce per day now "0k". Your next point was a delay of 4 months, how does for months explain a delay of 8yrs and counting. Your third point was covid 19, the project had been delayed for 7yrs prior not a valid point besides the project is estimated to be completed 2025 as only the fertiliser section will start operation next year. You finally made mention of loans becoming foreign reserve or foreign direct investment, Oga at this junction are you an educated illiterate how does a loan for an individuals private business translate into foreign reserve of a country do you think any of those $ came to Nigeria at all. The refinery is imported as well As all it's components the loan is to pay the invoices of the different manufacturers and other logistics and consultation costs period. Ajaokuta steel company that probably would have produced the complete refinery at a fraction of the cost is not working so who will send us the dollars for what we can't produce? As you can see the money is not enough, the project is far from complete and as such can't be used to service the matured obligations debtors are knocking. If your paid to do PR for Dangote your not doing well stop telling unnecessary lies besides what agreement did only Dangote have with the federal government that allowed only his cement trucks to cross our international boarders when they where locked against all other manufacturers in Nigeria. Do you know how many Nigerian's are in unemployment market because of that.


I won't even bother to respond to you. I will just drop a few pointers for you to have an introspective reflection on

Go and read to understand how Foreign Direct Investments work.
Secondly, no Bank has called in any loan otherwise his name would be on the list of defaulters periodically published by banks as stipulated by CBN.

Dangote is not the reason you are unemployed and building a 650k bpd capacity refinery is not beans. There are bound to be delays even beyond his own control.

Even the OEMs delayed from their end too.

Don't let bad belle and envy destroy you. The refinery will soon start operations and there is absolutely nothing y'all can do about it!

I feel for Dangote really, his projections may be way off considering the massive earthquake taking place in the automobile industry worldwide .........how will the massive refinery meet its revenue projection with the massive uptake of electric-powered vehicles in China and Europe in particular, even the united states is going to launch a massive build-out of recharging stations for EV all around the country with massive subsidies for companies selling Electric Vehicles................... This electric vehicle revolution may be a knockout blow for that Dangote refinery and will definitely affect the price of crude oil going forward.......................................in my view Dangote should have invested these mega billions in battery production for the EV industry.


please note that electric vehicles are more efficient and effective cars than petrol-powered cars, they are more expensive right now but they will become cheaper than petrol cars in the next 3-5 years, it is not looking too good for Dangote industry as a whole....sad really

The mistake you people keep making with this EMV buhahaha is you assume Dangote wants to sell his refined crude to foreigners which is not correct.

How many electric cars do yiu see in Nigeria or even West Africa that is is target market?

It will take at least a quarter or half another century before clean energy can disrupt anything and by then the investment would have made multiple of returns

Mr. Bako must be the sort of “seasoned economists” that have been in charge of the hapless Nigerian economy.

First, the NNPC is planning to take 20% in SIX private refineries, not just Dangote’s…
See this Reuters article: https://www.reuters.com/article/nigeria-refinery-equity-idAFL2N2NI1QL

Nonetheless, as already discussed here on Nairaland, Dangote is NOT HAPPY with the proposed acquisition…
See the following thread: https://www.nairaland.com/6626446/mele-kyari-refinery-dangote-not


Meanwhile, Dangote Refinery BOUGHT (not gifted) forex from the CBN forex window…
At the OFFICIAL rate that it’s sold to ALL companies in the real sector (not to mention for school fees, travel, health tourism, etc.).

The obtuse drivel about costing and delays merely amplifies this dude’s cluelessness. No other refinery project elsewhere involves reclaiming land bigger than Victoria Island and building a virtual port, because Apapa cannot handle the equipment for this project. Furthermore, dude seems clueless that Covid disrupted value-chains GLOBALLY (or does he think the equipment is manufactured in Nigeria) and consequently delayed most (if not ALL) large-scale infrastructure projects around the world.


Finally, debt to build a refinery would be long-term…
Therefore, it is SILLY to peddle beer-parlor rumors about banks already calling in their loans.

So many Nigerians love to attack success while celebrating mediocrity and failure…
Whether it is due to primordial ethnic sentiments, envy or just darn right IGNORANCE, it’s a succinct self-indictment!

SIRTee15:


I think this is the major issue. Refinery business is not really a profitable venture that guarantees quick return on investment. Its a very low profit margin business.
It's going to be hard to attract foreign investors that won't demand two arms n two legs especially in a volatile region like nigeria. Dangote may end up becoming a minority stakeholder.
However, the refinery is too big to fail. A lot is at stake here. FG will have to find a way to ensure its completion...if it means taking over.

I doubt local investors can be of any help. Or is it not nigerian bank collecting 700 million dollars every year over a 7.5 billion loan. Na wa o.
Maybe Cubana and his boys can come to his rescue. undecided

https://investorsreel.com/dangote-refinery-bailing-out-the-unbailable-funding-or-bailout/

Clearly who ever paid you for this watery write up didn't pay you well enough or must have over estimated your ability to do this hatchet job right.

First and foremost, no bank has called in Dangote's loans and infact they are falling over themselves to extend loans to him.

Secondly by law NNPC will have an equity stake in any refinery project that capacity to refine more than 200k barrels per day. This is the law that has been sacrosanct and in effect even before Dangote got his license to build a refinery so all the gist about NNPC bailing him out is bullocks!

Thirdly, the completion day for the Refinery was shifted about three times for the underlisted reasons

First was when he decided to increase the proposed capacity from 450k to 650k per day hence they had to recalibrate the entire project schedule neccesitating the néed to shift.

Second was due to community clashes at project site and work stopped for over 4 months at this time

Thirdly due to the covid 19 induced pandemic

Now back to the loans and financing for the refinery, there is 30% equity contribution from Dangote himself, 60% foreign loans and 10% local debt from a syndication of banks.

Even the foreign loans have been brought in tranches as foreign direct investment forming part of the foreign reserves hence, the reason why he has a fixed repo contract with the CBN. And he is not the only one that has. All institutional investors both local and foreign have one kind of Fixed USD contract arrangement with the CBN. Even Innoson Motors has same so I wonder why the search light is on Dangote alone?

Let me also burst your bubble, Dangcem market cap is around 3 trillion naira making it one of the most capitalised stocks on the NGX and Dangote owns about 90% of DangCem directly and even doing share buy back to increase his stake.

So if he runs into any trouble all he needs to do is sell a few Dang Cem shares and move on. The same company is poised to do a trillion naira in turnover this year.

Finally the bloated cost your are quoting g here including the transatlantic pipeline, fertiliser plant and refinery.

Don't allow your self to be used as s tool of destruction and yes the refinery will work and Dangote will get more wealth whether you and your cohorts like it or not.

God bless Dangote

Also depending on how strong the fragrance is, you can spray into the air and walk into it.

Good question. The strike is dead in arrival

Even the ones that are owner managers are under some kind of lease arrangement

Most of the driver carry off line rides which typically form about 45% of their rides and this is done using Uber/Bolt resources.
