Business / Glut Looms As Buyers Reject Nigerian Crude by Emekamex(m): 10:12am On Mar 09, 2018
Nigeria's oil supply to the international market is facing glut as ample supply of light and medium grades from the North Sea and the Mediterranean are limiting buying interest for Nigerian crude, traders said. This is coming as Angola launches big oil block.
A glut of Nigerian cargoes reckoned to be near 50 cargoes was said to be weighing on the market, traders said yesterday, while state Angolan oil firm, Sonangol, trimmed its offer of Saxi crude.
Much of the glut could end up heading into the refining systems of major oil companies like Shell and Total, a trader said, meaning the excess is effectively lower than 50 cargoes. Demand for Agbami and Qua Iboe has been higher than demand for other grades so far. while Qua Iboe was being offered at about dated Brent plus $2. About 10 April-loading Angolan cargoes remained available, steady from Tuesday's estimate.
The CLOV grade has been relatively slow to find buyers. Sonangol trimmed its offer of Saxi crude to dated Brent plus 50 cents, down 25 cents from Tuesday's level, a trader said. The company was still offering Dalia at dated Brent minus 70 cents a barrel.
Meanwhile, Angola is set to launch its big oil block. The first vessel that will pump and store oil for Angola's 230,000 barrels per day (bpd) Kaombo project is en route to the West African nation, operator, Total, said. The Kaombo oil block will produce its first oil this summer. Once it is fully up and running, it will add roughly 14 per cent to the OPEC member nation's average 2017 output of 1.632 million bpd. The Kaombo Norte floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel left Singapore earlier this week. The vessel has a capacity to pump 115,000 bpd, half the oil block's eventual production. The second FPSO, Kaombo Sul, is still in Singapore. The $16 billion offshore project will add a significant amount of oil to Africa's number two exporter at a time when the nation is bound by output limits under a deal orchestrated by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries.

Crime / 2 LG Staff Hacked, As Rampaging Herdsmen Sack LG Secretariat In Ondo by Emekamex(m): 4:04pm On Feb 13, 2018
At least two staff of Akure South local Government were yesterday hacked when some men numbering over 30 suspected to be Fulani herdsmen invaded the secretariat and paralysed government’s activities by chasing away other council workers.
Our correspondent learnt that the herdsmen gained entrance into the council secretariat from the back gate that leads to a swampy area being cultivated by some workers of the local government and attacked the staff .
It was also gathered that the ongoing wedding ceremony at the registry of the council was also disrupted by the cutlass wielding herdsmen.
Sources said the crisis started when a council worker in the Agriculture Department of the council, named Simon Johnson resisted the herdsmen from grazing on his vegetable farm behind the council secretariat.
According to the source, Johnson was said to have told one of the herders who was grazing on his farm to leave his farm and move to another place for grazing.
The source said, “This led to argument between them and the Fulani herdsman left the scene to mobilise his friends to attack the council. In the process, two of the workers of the council was macheted by the herdsmen. “
Members of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees who spoke at separate interviews with our correspondent at the premises urged the government to act on the matter.
When LEADERSHIP visited the scene, workers, including the local government caretaker Chairman, Mrs. Margret Atere were seen running out of the secretariat for the safety of their lives.
The workers vowed not to go back to their various offices until their security can be guaranteed.
As of the time of filling this report the Commissioner of Police for the Ondo State command, Mr. Gbenga Adeyanju led men of his command to the secretariat to assess the situation.

Politics / Reps Kick Against 1.8 Billion Dollars Turn Around Maintenance On Refineries by Emekamex(m): 9:06am On Nov 23, 2017
The House of Representatives has criticised a bid by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC to spend $1.8 billion on the maintenance of the refineries across the country.

In a motion by Ibrahim Isiaka (Ogun - APC) at the plenary on Tuesday, he queried the viability of further expenditure on the country's four refineries and the daily allocation of 445,000 barrels of crude to the facilities as they perform poorly.

"The House is cognisant that sums of $308 million, $57 million, $200 million, and lately, more than N264 billon were spent on refineries, yet it was reported that the NNPC is seeking $1.8 billion to carry out another TAM (Turn Around Maintenance) to make the refineries attractive to investors."

He added that the federal government's efforts to bring in private investors to build refineries had not yielded the desired result.

"Despite major paradigm shift and consideration of different reliefs, including reduction of licensing fee for new refineries from $1 million
to $50,000 to make domestic refining attractive and reduce huge capital flight to fuel importation, only Aliko Dangote has put the licence to use.

"No efforts have been made to revoke the licences given to individuals and corporate organisations to build refineries, which have yet to be utilised", he said.

He noted that $20 billion had already been spent on TAM but without appreciable improvement in performance to justify the fresh expenditure.

He added that Nigeria's refineries had the worst performance record in Africa at, "11 per cent, compared to the 81 per cent scored by Egypt and 85 per cent recorded by South Africa."

The House unanimously also resolved to investigate and determine the current status of the four refineries.
Nigeria, Africa's largest oil producer, imports most of its petroleum products for domestic use.

The four refineries located in Port Harcourt, Warri and Kaduna have a combined capacity to refine 445,000 barrels of crude per day.

Politics / Botswana Police Ranked Africa's Best, Nigeria At Bottom Of Global Report by Emekamex(m): 4:15pm On Nov 09, 2017
Africa’s best police service is that of Botswana despite being ranked 47th best in the world. This is according tothe World Internal Security and Police Index (WISPI) released by two bodies, the International Police Science Association (IPSA) and the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP).

The index ranked the Rwandan policeas Africa’s second best (with global position of 50th) followed by Algeria (58th), Senegal (68th) and Tunisia (72nd) in that order.Completing the top 10 for Africa were, Egypt, Burkina Faso, Ghana, South Africa and Mali respectively.

“WISPImeasures the ability of the police and other security providers to address internal security issues in 127 countries, across four domains, using sixteen indicators,” authors of the report stated. The four domains are, capacity, process, legitimacy and outcomes.

Despite the failure of Africa to break into the top forty, the continent was very prominent in the lower rankings.

Six African countries were in the bottom 10. Cameroon and Mozambique in the 120th and 122nd spots.Uganda, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Nigeria made it an African quartet at the bottom – occupying 124th to 127 slots respectively.

Politics / Power Generation Crashes By 1,835.6MW In Three Days by Emekamex(m): 9:17am On Aug 07, 2017
The total quantum of electricity on the nation’s power grid crashed by 1,835.6 megawatts within a period of three days.

After reaching a peak of 4,282.6MW on August 2, 2017, power generation dropped to as low as 2,447MW on August 5, according to the latest data on the performance of the grid obtained in Abuja on Sunday.

Power generation has continued to fluctuate for several months now, as operators blame the development on gas and frequency constraints.

The recent power briefing from the Transmission Company of Nigeria stated that 1,651MW of electricity could not be generated as a result of frequency management constraint on Friday alone, which was due to loss of feeders of power distribution companies.

It also stated that the reported gas constraint resulted in the inability to generate 505MW on the same day.

However, further findings showed that electricity generation since the beginning of August had continue to hover between 2,387MW and 4,280MW.

On Wednesday, data indicated that gas-fired electricity-generating turbines in seven stations across the country were dormant, a development that adversely affected power generation.

The industry data showed that on August 2, all the hydro and steam power stations had at least one hydro or steam turbine that was functional. It highlighted three hydro power stations as well as three steam stations.

But out of the 22 gas power generating stations that were captured in the report, seven had dormant turbines, and they were Afam IV-V, Alaoji NIPP, Olorunsogo NIPP, A.E.S, ASCO, Rivers IPP and Gbarain NIPP.

It was also gathered that increased gas constraints to power-producing turbines was another reason why some of the machines were left dormant.

The Executive Secretary, Association of Power Generation Companies, Dr. Joy Ogaji, recently announced that electricity producers were owed over N500bn by the market, adding that this had made it tough for some of the Gencos to pay their gas suppliers.

Ogaji had said, “For us to be able to procure gas, we need money. Gas companies are owed several billions by us. We are being owed nearly N600bn and we are owing gas companies nearly N200bn.

“Most of them now say they cannot supply anymore until we pay. In fact, most of the companies like Shell and Total now do what we call pay-before-service. And since the market is paying us 29 per cent out of the expected 100 per cent, how do we pay for the gas?

“Some of these power companies that you’ve heard about cannot put all their machines on, they will just select from maybe out of five machines; they will just put on two or one, depending on what you can pay for with respect to gas. That’s the situation and it is a precarious and pitiable state.”

Yar Adua was the best president by far. He maintained a stable economy and also provided peace to the Niger Delta, after Obasanjo tried to bring conflict in that region.

He also was fair in distribution of appointments amongst regions. Nigeria would have been better if the subsequent presidents after him tried to better his efforts.
Health / Re: All You Need To Know About Sudden Cardiac Arrest That Causes Death by Emekamex(m): 6:25pm On Jun 11, 2017
it means heart attack undecided

Cardiac arrest and heart attack are not the same thing.

People often use these terms interchangeably, but they are not synonyms. A heart attack is when blood flow to the heart is blocked, and sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart malfunctions and suddenly stops beating unexpectedly. A heart attack is a “circulation” problem and sudden cardiac arrest is an “electrical” problem.
Politics / Re: Democracy Day: Share Your Assessment After 2 Years by Emekamex(m): 5:23pm On May 29, 2017

Freedom to vote. Not freedom to block vote. It was a concerted effort to unite against APC and Buhari, unfortunately it failed. But that's all in the past now.
Lets focus on what's important, how best to secure the best for a United Nigeria.

I highly doubt that votes where blocked. Buhari is unpopular in the SE, as people view him as a tribal bigot who will favour only his people. This was the notion of most people and that led to the low votes in SE and not because of blocked votes.

The funny thing is that the notion people had about Buhari is continually being justified by the one-sided pattern of government by the present administration.
Politics / Re: Democracy Day: Share Your Assessment After 2 Years by Emekamex(m): 4:41pm On May 29, 2017

I understand the lack of trust in govt. But I choose to give this administration benefit of the doubt.
Besides the bigotry started when igbos chose to marginalize themselves further by deciding a block vote for GEJ. Who's fault is that? Let's not play the blame game.

I dont get you guys sometimes, what is the essence of democracy if everyone votes for one candidate for fear of marginalization?

Democracy is a freedom of expression and people should not be punished for exercising their voters right. They will never be unity in the country if politics continues to be a "do or die" affair.

Politics / Boko Haram Beheads Four IDPs In Dalori-1 Camp, Maiduguri by Emekamex(m): 8:18am On May 22, 2017
Four internally displaced persons, IDPs, in Dalori-1 Camp of Maiduguri,Borno State, have been beheaded bythe Boko Haram, PREMIUM TIMES learnt.

They were reportedly beheaded while hunting outside the camp on Saturday.The four victims were on Sunday buried by their fellow displaced persons.Two other IDPs who were among a 12-man hunting troop were yet to be accounted for on Sunday evening.

It took a search team to find the four beheaded bodies some few kilometres from the Dalori camp along the Maiduguri-Bama road.Sources familiar with the incident said the attacked IDPs who were also volunteer members of the local vigilante, Civilian-JTF, often go to the bush to hunt for games which they either cook to beef up their protein needs or sell to earn some cash.

It was supposed to be another normal hunting day for the 12 men on Saturday, but unfortunately, they ran into a gang of Boko Haram insurgents who attacked and beheaded four of them.“Six of the IDP hunters managed to run back late afternoon of Saturday to inform us at the camp that they were attacked by Boko Haram fighters”, said an IDP from Bama who identified himself as Alai Goni.

“When we waited for the six others to return and they did not, we decided to go in search for them. About 6km away from the camp, we came to a riverbank and we saw a man watering his horse. The man simply pointed to us where the corpses of the four slain men were dumped. We became suspicious of him and we had to arrest him and bring him to the security personnel at the gate of Dalori-1 camp.“Unfortunately, we could not immediately find the decapitated heads of three of them; we only found three bodies without their heads, while the fourth one whose head was not separated from his body, had some kind of sharp word forcefully driven into his forehead.”

The source said the heads of the four beheaded persons were later found early Sunday morning, after which they were prepared for burial at about 9 a.m.“Unfortunately, we have not heard from the other two missing IDPs and we are not sure if they are still alive or dead”, he said.Dalori camp is about 1.5km from the University of Maiduguri that has been a target for Boko Haram suicide bombers in the past weeks.

The leader of the Civilian-JTF, Abba Kalli, who also confirmed the incident, blamed the victims for embarking on such “dangerous expedition”, after they had been severally warned that it was dangerous for them to wander away from the camp.“It was indeed a sad occurrence for us yesterday,” he said.“Four of them were beheaded; two were captured and taken away, while the rest six managed to escape. We have severally warned them going even 2km kilometres away from their camps in that axis is very dangerous because the Boko Haram insurgents were there in the bush. But they refused to heed to warning, by insisting on going to hunt in the bush”.“They have been buried according tothe Islamic rite this morning,” said Kalli who confirmed that the slain victims were all IDPs from Bama who later volunteered to be members of the Civilian-JTF.

PREMIUM TIMES gathered from sources at the camp that the slain persons were named Wali Fanne, Ibrahim, Chacha, and Baba Karemi.Residents living around the camp, have expressed concern over the increasing attacks around Maiduguri, as they called on the state government and security operatives to increase surveillance in that part of the Borno capital that is increasingly becoming porous for Boko Haram attacks.Neither the police nor the military has issued any statement on the latest incident.The Boko Haram insurgency has caused about 100,000 deaths since 2009.

Politics / Power Supply Worsens As Nigeria Records Another System Collapse by Emekamex(m): 9:12am On May 12, 2017
The system collapse recorded on May 8, 2017 culminated in a significant drop in generation, transmission and distribution of electricity to many parts of the nation.

The Presidency disclosed in its report, yesterday: “System collapse on May 8, 2017 at 1429hrs. System frequency suddenly and sharply dropped from 51.06Hz to 43.37Hz, leading to system collapse.
‘’Prior to collapse, Benin/Egbin 330kV line (cct B6N) was out on fault due to cut sky wire between towers #460 & 461.
“On May 9, 2017, average power sent out was 3425Wh/hour (up by 468MWh/h). The reported gas constraint was 1915MW.
“The reported line constraint was 150MW. The reported high frequency constraint was 59MW. The water management constraint was 260MW. The power sector lost an estimated N1, 144,000,000 on May 09 2017 due to constraints.’’

Investigations showed that the nation recorded two system collapse incidents in April 2017 alone, which also affected supply to consumers.
A study by NOIPolls, an Abuja-based research outfit disclosed that power supply to households in the nation dropped to 30 per cent of installed capacity in the first quarter of this year, from the 37 per cent obtained in last quarter of last year.

The new aggregated power poll results released by NOIPolls for the first quarter of 2017 showed that the lowest power supply to households in Q1, 2017 was observed in January at 21 per cent.
The drop was attributed to the shortage of gas to the power generating companies and low water levels at the hydro power stations.
For Q1 2017, the monthly average cumulative hours of power supply experienced was recorded as 7.5 hours daily in January, which was the lowest. It went up to 9.8 hours in February, which was recorded as the highest.
The results obtained from the poll also revealed that for Q4, 2016, average daily power cumulative supply was 9.6 hours, while in Q1, 2017, it dropped to an average of 8.9 hours daily, indicating a 0.7-point decrease.

A cumulative power supply of 8.9 hours per day was assessed to be a far cry from the standard 24 hours power supply which Nigerian households ought to be experiencing, thus further buttressing the issues inherent in Nigeria’s power sector.
The Federal government had embarked on several power sector interventions in the past, which have failed to yield any sustained positive impact.
Still, in the bid to revive the power sector, the Federal Government, in collaboration with the World Bank, recently set out guidelines for the power sector recovery plans to create a viable industry that is privately run.
While this is a welcome strategy for the revival of the sector, the report posited that in the execution of the plan, constant evaluation with visible milestones within specific time frames should be maintained.
“Although there are evidences of concerted efforts to make the power sector work at optimum level, the sector is still riddled with vast problems ranging from generation to distribution.
“Industry watchers have blamed majority of the crisis bedevilling the power sector on the monopolistic nature of the hydroelectric generating systems. Nigeria is blessed with diverse natural resources which developed nations use to generate abundant electricity but less attention has been paid to those options.”
“Nigeria is one of the least electrified nations and its current power generation, which continues to hover between 3,000 and 5,000 megawatts, cannot keep up with the population growth.

“According to a World Bank report, about 75 million Nigerians lack access to adequate electricity and Nigeria was ranked highest among the countries with electricity access deficit when energy access, efficiency and renewable are on the rise in many developing nations.
“It is against this background that NOIPolls conducted its quarterly survey to assess electricity distribution to Nigerian households in the first quarter of 2017,” it added.

Consumers Lament Poor Supply

The Chairman, Iponri Housing Estate Residents Association, Surulere, Abdul-Rasak Osho, said electricity supply in his area was a bit better than what it used to be. He, however, said that though generation was on the increase, power supply may not necessarily improve in all areas due to transmission constraints. “Supply cannot be regular when majority of the power lines are obsolete; there is no equipment to locate faults and officials find it difficult to identify the exact location where they occur.’’

The Secretary, Ogunlana Community Development Area (CDA), Mr Eniola Taiwo, said the community was badly hit by irregular power supply.
“Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) is punishing us in Ogunlana area; while we see electricity supply in other neighbouring communities, we are always in darkness.
“We have met their staff and promised to pay our monthly bills, but what are we paying for? Darkness”, he said.
He said power supply had not improved in their area. The President, Amuwo-Odofin New Town Landlords and Tenants, Mile 2, Chief Ade-Owas Owabumuwa, however, said electricity supply in the area had improved after demolition of illegal structures in the area by Lagos State Government.

A resident of Lekki Phase 1, Mr Philip Okoro, also said that electricity supply in his area had improved considerably, but noted that transmission constraints on the part of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) was affecting distribution of energy to consumers. “The major problem is with Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN). Most of their equipment are outdated and because of lack of fund and neglect, this generated power does not get to consumers.

However, the Transmission Company of Nigeria disclosed that it has installed and energized a 40MVA 132/33kV mobile power transformer at the Damboa Transmission Substation in Bornu State, on May 7th, 2017.
The GM (Public Affairs) TCN, Seun Olagunju, TCN stated that the Damboa Substation, previously a 60MVA 132/33kV capacity transmission station with fully equipped control room and staff quarters was completely destroyed by Boko Haram insurgents on the 4th of July, 2014.


Crime / 4 Nigerian Fraudsters Arrested In Canada (Photo) by Emekamex(m): 12:43am On May 11, 2017
Canadian authorities have showcased the expensive lifestyles of four Canada-based Nigerians who are alleged fraudsters. Reports claim that 45-year old Adedayo Ogundana (also known as Oladipupo Ogund), 37-year-old Adekunle Johnson Omitiran, 44-year-old Duro Akintola (also known as Michie Noah) and 47-year-old Emmanuel Salako (also known as Gee Salaq) are into credit card theft and mail pilfering.

These four are at the center of a riveting police investigation of frauds running into several millions of dollars. Sources say they spend monies gotten from their fraudulent activities to live lavish lifestyles. Items seized during the investigation include 37 stolen credit cards, hundreds of pieces of presumably stolen mail, and a number of notebooks containing the personal information of at least 5,000 GTA residents.

Police also found $39,000 in cash, $310,000 worth of watches and about $390,000 worth of clothing, jewelry, accessories and liquor. See some of the items recovered from them below:
