Politics / Re: External Reserves Slip By $905.5 Million In June – CBN by Houstency(m): 6:57am On Jul 02
Beancounter93:


1. Increasing subsidy payments as it is becoming more expensive to keep fuel at a cheap price with rising oil prices meaning increase in the cost of refining fuel. Then subsidy makes it unprofitable to refine at home because domestic refinreis cannot set their prices and thus cannot make a profit on refining petrol here.

2. Oil has not been as high as we want it . We should have had oil at $133 for a balanced budget not the $80 it is ( breakeven price)

3. Because oil has not been as high as we want it to be we have to borrow to keep our heads above water. Paying back our debts is difficult.

Recall that the oil price has been volatile since 2014. Atimes it has been as low as $24 and as high as $80. Meanwhile our breakeven oil price rose from $122 in 2012 to $139 in 2017.and now $133. When oil is not as high as you need it you take loans to cover the difference
And then you have to pay back the loans.

4. Tax level low. Our tax to gdp ratio is 6.1%. Only 30% of the taxable population pays taxes. As such we are far more dependent on oil for everything (A big reason why NNPC boss Kyari is so insistent on subsidy removal is because it is taking a big bite from government revenues...meaning that government cannot spend money on other things until it has fed the subsidy monster)


5. Corruption and stealing at all levels of government. Inflated claims. Looting..Round tripping. You know the drill.

6. Failure to diversify the economy. Nigeria in particular loses billions to illegal mining. Agriculture is not at the level we need it to be to be a big exporter. And government talks a lot but does nothing. Rice pyramids does not mean that Nigeria has displaced Brazil and Thailand as a major rice producer.

7. Buhari. ( before anyone calls me his supporter which I ain't)

8. Insecurity, boko etc which drives off investors

Laudable points, no. 7 though should be no. 1, every other points could follow. Buhari and his team are simply inept and bereft of ideas, a good manager would work with what is available and not engage in wanton waste as it is ongoing in this dispensation.

somehow:


Does Twitter, Facebook etal have offices in the US?

If yes, why can't they have offices every where else they make money from?

Reasonable question, same can be applied to our leaders here. The foreign schools and hospitals they frequent do they have branches in Nigeria? Specifically, our number 1 citizen Buhari. It isn't convenient to pick one and throw out the other. Russian president even went as far ditching his German official car for a Russian made, let Buhari do same with Innoson or other Naija alternatives. Same for his frequent visits to foreign hospitals, as well disseminating information official here on Nairaland like he did with Twitter and Facebook we are maligning.

The difference is just like comparing $100,000 to #100,000 naira. Yeah, the difference is that clear. Is buhari on Nairaland?

Don't mind the hypocritical beings. Simple question, prior to the ban and after the ban, let them answer the simple question is Buhari on Nairaland, what is Buhari's moniker? American president proudly uses twitter and Facebook and other social media platform. Buhari, not only brush aside the so-called Nigerian alternative he his holding onto, but comfortably using the foreign alternative they so malign simply because his posts was deleted.

In what way have you benefited your country, keep crying whilst brainy foreigners keep cashing out

Did innoson, air peace make money from politics or abroad?

The very poor state of the Naira is down to your inferiority complex and lack of awareness and identifying opportunities. Since you want outsider's to do the heavy lifting for your whilst trampling on each other, creating shady businessess to get to the top .

Blame everyone but yourselves.. mumunis

You have nothing reasonable to say, hence you resort to name calling and insults. Wallow in your shallow mindedness. All what you outlined, where does your president visit for medical care after 6years in office, where does his kids school for a start? How beneficial are those institutions to our country? Do they pay taxes to Nigeria? Simply because his post was deleted, or he doesn't want any form of opposition, it becomes convenient to ban what is available, while the alternative they paid more than 130m, came up with crap. You are just uttering Owing to time constraints for both Presenters tonight, meeting has been shifted to 9pm.

Did the American government create twitter?

How does the US government support Twitter?

Presently in the US, several states are already looking into how they would curtail the tech giants.

The problem with many of you is that you harbour self-hate and would never see anything good with your own kind.

Once it is from abroad it is good.


grin funny you, and the problem with you BMC folks is that, you are paid to see contrary opinions even genuine ones as hatred for the government you are serving.

And your last statement defines you more, why sought validation because the Russian president took an action? You are been hypocritical with the truth. Reasonable government support businesses, and it is evident in the way and manner companies are running away from Nigeria to neighbouring countries to build their African headquarters. No business would runaway from a country, with good investment environment!

If this was Nigeria, children of hate won't allow us hear a thing. I wonder how a private company would supercede a sovereign nation.

We know this decision wasn't a reactionary one as opposed to that of your feeble minded president Nigeria has got, simply because his post was deleted. Also, Russia have got alternative for most of those companies, which one have your country produced and how supportive have your government been towards them?

Russian president uses Russian medicare, his kids if any, attend Russian school. That's how to gain control over foreign companies. Where does Buhari visit for medicare and which schools does his kids attend? How are they beneficial to Nigeria and do they pay taxes or have branches in Nigeria. Also since he has banned twitter, he should proudly join Nairaland and disseminate official government information on Nairaland just like American presidents proudly use and promote Twitter, Facebook and other American social media companies. Only hypocritical useless people would defend every nonsense from him.

TV/Movies / Re: What Series Are You Watching Now? Part 2 by Houstency(m): 11:48pm On Jun 17
saxha:


The Wire hands down.
Arguably the best series ever.
Season three and four is something else. You just can't get enough.
Season one might be a slow burner, but you'll get to appreciate it more as season two unfolds. Season two and five might not be that action-packed but s2 tells the story in another dimension. While season five gave the whole series a conclusion.

Which site can I download it from? Thanks

In short, season 1 is about the street drug trade and its internal workings.
Season 2 is more about organized corruption.
Season 3 is about politics, gang war, and the aftermath effect/life of drug dealers.
Season 4 is about the effect of drugs on society, particularly education and adolescents.
Season 5 is about media/journalism and the effect of drugs in a large context.

Don't get too attached to any character, cuz the main protagonist of the series is Baltimore itself.

Barak Obama claimed that The Wire is his best series.
Enjoy, man.

I still have the full series on my PC, despite changing my PC three times.

Where can I download it? Thanks

The NSA is very skilled in presenting the holier-than-thou attitude in the public. But in truth, I think the rot in the ONSA under him is worse than that of Sambo Dasuki (ex-NSA boss). Monies were spirited out recklessly, and this prompted the military hierarchy then as it was to effect some changes in the ONSA.

These so called experts are beyond dolts. Do they not know they are already paying for the services of these social media Giants? Is data free?
A lot of them pay to promote their tweets or products as sponsored tweets.


Why are they talking stupidly? If Twitter can make money off the citizens of different countries despite being domiciled and registered in USA then they should be registered in the countries they are accessed in and also make money from.

This is simple common sense. You cannot be making money from Nigeria and paying taxes to USA. That is madness

Not difficult to spot zombies. Same way foreign shops, schools and hospitals visited by even Nigerian politicians, businessmen and children make money from Nigerians, so applying your skewed reasoning, let's have Bubu's hospital in U.K have a registered branch in Nigeria. Use your brain and stop defending nonsense with nonsense!

You don’t even have to be a SAN to know that there is no sense in the argument of the FG against open grazing. The right to freedom if movement is not an absolute right, it doesn’t cover the right to illegally enter or occupy people’s properties (farms) and destroy them.

It’s so unfortunate that Buhari is now surrounded by ethnic jingoist who prefer the country to burn all in the name of promoting an ethnic agenda.

Oga stop playing to the gallery, who surrounded Buhari with the Ethnic Jingoists? Buhari is culpable, hence should take the fall for everything worse bedevilling the country, his open nepotistic tendencies, tacit support for Killers, Bandits and Terrorists alike, very poor communication skills and looking the other way when his tribe is carrying out genocidal missions. The good thing is, you know the truth but trying to downplay the severity owing to your tacit for support for the government of the day (which you are entitled to and I respect that).
