I hope these rabid telecoms see the wisdom in the minister's directive and act accordingly. Data cost is too high. I just can't fathom why our population cum market should be our Archiles

Wish Ribadu can come back. That man forever has my respects. It isn't easy rejecting $5mill bribe. Not sure I'd have the mind to turn such down myself.

Ditto Ken Nnamani.

It was $15m in cash.

Politics / Re: Border Closure: Northern Textile Traders Say They Stand To Lose Over N3 Trillion by docadams: 3:17pm On Nov 03, 2019

Stop talking nonsense. What contraband did they import. Reread the article slowly. The textile mills are down because the business environment bad for it.

Voltron, defender of the smuggle's interests.. How do you connect what you regurgitated from your insipid medulla to the reality on ground. Going by your assertion at the bolded I can confidently state that the maturity and knowledge I once gave you on this platform was a waste. Tell me which of the listed textile mills was still operating by year 2003? Wasted knowledge

The Q3 GDP report will be spicy. It seems alot small business are coming out of woodwork to complain. They'll just have use seaports or airports even if it doesn't make sense. Im going guess GDP grew 1.5%.

PS: NBS never released 2018 crime statistics.

Complain about what, their inability to ship in their contraband goods? Loosing 3trllion naira indeed. They admitted the comatose state of our textile industries, so how is 3trillion being lost. Tomorrow it will be the turn of slaughter houses loosing trillion to border closure, next will be association of Kunu hawkers.

Politics / Re: What Is Your Opinion About The Nigeria Land Border Closure? by docadams: 8:20am On Oct 23, 2019
*Benin Republic has a population of 12 million people. But it is the worlds 5th importer of rice. In 2018, it imported rice worth US$996m.*

*Benin is also world's largest importer of _used_ _cars_ and __second_ - _hand_ _clothing_ . All with a population of 12m people.*
*DO YOU WONDER HOW?.........*

*98.2% of these imports into Benin are only on transit; their final destination is _NIGERIA_ !*
*Nigeria is world's largest consumer of used cars and second hand clothing, and is also Africa's largest consumer of Asian grown rice.*

*The problem here is that all these imported goods attract appropriate import duty and trade tax, which are paid to the Beninoise Government while the goods are thence SMUGGLED into Nigeria WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT to the Nigerian Government and, thereby, adding zero value to the Nigerian economy!*

*Granted, ECOWAS/CEDEAO charter allows for free trade between member states, but _on_ _goods_ _produced_ _in_ _member_ _countries_ , and NOT on imports from other economic blocs.*

*Where foreign goods are transiting through a member country, and ending up in another member country, the ECOWAS charter stipulates that the country of transit MAY collect a token trade tax, and its Customs officials should then escort the goods to the border of the importing country and hand it over to the Customs officials of the importing country!*
*But what we see in the case of Benin Republic is that it collects _CUSTOMS_ _DUTY_ plus _TRADE_ _TAX_ , and then allows the goods to pass through its hinterland for onward smuggle into Nigeria!*

*This is a clear violation of ECOWAS statutes and no nation can condone such costly infraction.*

*Nigeria has tolerated this nonsense from Benin for far too long and it is time to stop the malpractice if we want Nigeria's economy to grow.*
*(Therefore, whoever cries foul because we have closed our borders to smugglers while we're putting our act together, IS AN ENEMY OF NIGERIA!)*

*Nigeria makes up about 74% of ECOWAS population and about 71% of its economy. It is ECOWAS that needs Nigeria and not the other way round!*


Very informative


Politics / Re: What Is Your Opinion About The Nigeria Land Border Closure? by docadams: 8:07am On Oct 23, 2019
I look at sustainability of any policy and this is not sustainable ...can we close our borders for 5 years or 10 years or 25 years

Buhari like most Nigerians like treating the symptoms not root cause

The problem is we import foreign rice

Root cuase
1) our local grains are short Nigerians prefer longer grain
2) our yield are small average 1 ton per hectare while Thailand is 10ton per hectare
3) we have evil birds that can eat up ur farm in few days ...eat everything

Closing border is like forcing ur child to listen to radio because he goes to the next compound to watch TV which he love .

My solutions
1) we need to develop our seeds ...Jonathan government did a lot on this regard don't know why they were not continued ...we need to develop long grains

2) develop grains that yeild between 6 to 10 tons per hectare ...n can be planted 2 to 3 times a year

3) give loans to major rice farmers already to expand

4 ) develop ways to handle those evil birds ...we can learn from iseral

Create rice farming villages

Place 50% import duty on rice imported use the money to fund the above

In 5 years we can achieve full sufficiency then u can ban import

If their beef is exclusively with Benin and Nigeria republic why not allow the rest if ECOWAS to trade via land borders. I really dont know what Nigeria wants from those two.

Banning foreign rice is like locking ur child at home and force him to listen to radio because he watches TV in your neighbors house hoping he would chose radio over TV instead to buy TV

One hectares of Nigerian rice farm yeilds 1 ton of rice paddy or 800kg to 900kg of rice averagly ...in Thailand its 10 tons ..or 9 tons of rice

Tackling the symptoms is nothing ...Jonathan government focused more on developing seeds that can increase our yield for rice and what ....they developed 6 tons variety ...where are they now

We have crop sciences in many university give them grants to develop seeds that can match what Thailand has

Can we close our border for 10 years ? Can we

Travel / Re: Fire Outbreak In Onitsha As Truck Crashes Toronto Hospital Fence (Photos, Video) by docadams: 6:36pm On Oct 16, 2019
when it comes to things that concerns Igbos, every creeping and crawling thing would automatically have a say, no matter how worthless and unwanted their opinions might be, they just want to air it. Because... after all it's about the Igbos

Sorry as e de pain you. I am just awed that in a major city like Onitsha with all its potentials, no effective fire service. And it is not the first time such is happening in Anambra state. Back in 2004, a similar explosion occurred at a filling station opposite NAUTH, Nnewi. No single firefighter came to the rescue till the fire burnt out. Very disgraceful.

Delta state had to send an ambulance across the Niger

Hmm. It is a tragedy. May all lives be spared. Somebody said the firefighters came after 2 hours. Hope they didn't come blaring sirens without water. The igbos should focus attention more on their states instead of wasting their energy discussing happenings in Lagos, Kano, Lokoja, or Daura.

And you think Ghana cares about 80 million dollars. Our free SHS alone cost us 500 million dollars in just one year.One Ghanaian business man is worth times ten of that 80 million dollars. It's chicken change in Ghana. You should buy boko haram and tame them rather or better still,buy Niger Republic and let them stop controlling your country. Stupid talk.Do you know the worth of goods Ghana exports a year alone.That 17 billion dollars will fund 70% of your 25 billion budget for 200 million cows,sorry people.

You boast and malign out of ignorance of he facts.

Politics / Re: Border Closure: FG Releases Statement by docadams: 5:36pm On Oct 14, 2019

You sign #AfCFTA, and then close your border, and then "completely" close the border.

All the while, ignoring that you've lost the ability (for years now), to effectively police the borders.

if you want to ban a commodity, you have to factor in the demand of the commodity and how much your people rely on it. You don't go and ban importation of Rice when the indigenous farmers don't have the necessary quantity demanded by the nationals. There should have been a timeframe before such is implemented

We go learn by force. Hardship will go round.

AfCYA is for goods made or produced by member states. The rest of your post is typical of that of a smuggler.

The present government have bred and legalized its own brand of brazen corruption in all strata of our national life.Imagine what a corrupt military will do to a nation.

Thought this happened under Jonathan? Why bring it up now?? Or Azazi and Dasuki served under the current administration?

Just imagine how much the bigwigs in police pension ate then ...I wonder what Maina did to Buhari recently because Buhari only prosecutes this he has issues with..Did Buhari find out Maina tried to finance Atiku campaign from the Shadows?

Below is the mana for your incurable memory loss and uncontrollable verbal diarrhoea.

“Maina had a total inflow of over N2.7 billion between 2010 and 2013, with 95 per cent of the deposits being in cash. It was discovered that Faizal Abdullahi’s Account (his son), had a turnover of over N1.5 billion in less than a year.”

The world is waiting to see what becomes of this Maina case -the alleged highly wanted pension funds fugitive criminal.

This is the time for the president/presidency to truly clear their names by revealing to Nigerians their role in the controversial reinstatement & double promotion of this man.

It's only a foolish man that will ask a question, turns round expecting a pat in the back but is greeted by an ominous silence, turns round again to ask himself "what was I even saying self?"
