Business / Re: Nigerian Businesses Gradually Going Cashless (Photos) by KushLyon(m): 7:07am
What kind of rubbish cashless are you talking about. I did transfer yesterday to pay for something I bought and it took over 2 hours before the seller received the money, meanwhile I was debited immediately. Useless country with useless policies

You are right but we must start somewhere. Truth be told the banks did not expand their network capacity in anticipation of increased card usage and mobile transfers with the advent of the Cashless policy.
Exactly, they didn't expect things to go this way but the truth is that banks have been facing this issues for a few years now, they do experience network downtime a lot but never thought of addressing the issue by increasing their network capacity. CBN didn't plan this well, they are supposed to make sure banks can handle increased card usage and mobile transfers before embarking on cashless policy, but I guess in a way we can call what's happening now a beta test

You're just a clown.....

The reason for the whole new naira regime is to reduce Nigerian's overdependence on cash.

Abroad people don't move about with much physical cash when 99% of their transactions are paid for by card or transfer.

The demand for cash far exceeds supply that is why banks have difficulty in keeping their ATMs loaded.

It is the same problem with the new notes. Yes there is politics involved in it without a doubt but the fundamentals are the same. Government wants more people to go cashless. Now even if you load 20m in your ATM POS agents are on standby to withdraw all the money. I hear that now they even pay multiple people to go to the ATM and withdraw on their behalf. In addition they also have multiple cards all in a bid to bypass the CBN restrictions. As a result an ATM that could have served 500 people will end up serving just 50 people meanwhile not enough deposits are coming in because people are hoarding their cash either to use themselves or to sell to pos agents who of course will sell at ridiculous rates to Nigerians who no dey hear word. Even major cash depositors like fuel stations are not allowed to go and deposit their monies at the bank at close of business because POS agents are there to buy their cash! Banks thus are put Inbetween a rock and a hard place of limited supply and unlimited demand for cash!

If majority of small businesses start accepting transfers or get a POS for their business payments or get a QR code which a customer can scan and make payment, gradually demand for physical cash will reduce over time and with the reduction in demand, all those stockpiling their cash will release same into circulation.

Things are difficult right now in some areas crazy sef but I believe we are on the right track. Government should allow this scarcity to remain until after election after which they can relax some controls. There should be an expansion of network capacity by banks to accommodate the increased transfers which is sure to occur to ensure more customer buy in, improved service and reduced transfer issues which is the major reason why people distrust transfers.

Finally a task force should be setup to monitor cash pos operators to check their excesses and avoid over exploitation of the people. It's crazy for people to have to pay 1000 or 2000 naira to withdraw 10000 naira!

We are not ready for a cashless economy. Since this whole new currency issue started, banks have been acting crazy and some bank apps don't even open at all. My debit cards haven't been working since for some days now and whenever I try to use a POS to pay, it get declined. As for bank transfer, a lot of businesses have started adding a fee to any transfer you do. I tried paying for something yesterday with bank transfer and the woman told me there's a fee of N100. We still have a very long way to go before we can embrace cashless economy, a lot of things have to be fixed first

Is there no bank in that location

There are banks around but most of the ATMs are no longer dispensing cash by that time of the evening and the few that are still dispensing have a huge crowd around them
Politics / Re: Naira Notes Scarcity: Edo Govt To Set Up Special Task Force On Pos Agents by KushLyon(m): 9:29pm On Feb 06
Right now I don't even have any cash with me. I wanted to buy food earlier today and I told them I want to transfer but they said transfer attracts a fee of N100, I get choice? I tried to withdraw from POS and they said 2k withdrawal goes for N400, we finally agreed for N300 and when I tried to withdraw with my card, it was declined. See eh, this country don tire me, nothing is just working. No cash, and to pay with debit card is another problem on its own. Only God knows how I go chop tomorrow

My course mates and I did our IT in Lagos a few months ago and that was the worst month of my life. The institute we were attached to provided accomodation at Ajah while we commuted to their headquarters at Victoria Island everyday. We had to leave the house at 5am everyday just to beat traffic and guess what? We still end up in mad traffic everyday! There was a day I had breakfast and lunch right in traffic, e come be like say person dey travel to another state. Should we then talk about the quality of water? Let's not even go there. Benin city isn't as developed as Lagos but I still love it here, Lagos is too chaotic abeg. The only good thing there is the opportunities it provides due to the fact that a lot of companies have their headquarters there, it's basically a business hub

So I'm guessing the people in the comment section reporting the same thing are all making reference to the heavy downpour of July or you didn't even check the Twitter thread at all before making your claims?

appliedscience:

My question is will the creation of Conua, hence the migration of members from ASUU to Conua solve the problem?.... Will Conua sooner or later also revolve to revolt against lack of proper funding by government? Ur guess is as good as mine!

The members of conua are probably the type of people that are okay with suffering, they rather receive peanuts just so they can cope with hunger even when they know they deserve more, they rather see our universities in shambles and undeveloped if it means they will still be employed and continue receiving their meagre salaries, they are the ultimate cowards

Ask Google. If someone cheats you in your biz, will you just say thank you to the person?
Will you feel the pain or enjoy it?
Answer that and see why cheats deserve every pain

No partner has the right to cheat. If you know you ll be cheating, just don't start with a strong mind.

Everybody that isn't married has the right to cheat, it's something called freedom of association and it's up to you as a morally upright person to cheat or stay faithful. But nobody has the right to destroy someone's else property, so just die this your rubbish talks
