I knew this would eventually happen, this is the result of ECOWAS failure to remove them

But I wonder how these landlocked countries will survive on their own without the rest of the regional block, some of them still depend heavily on their neighbors for so many things


By helping your neighbor, you are also helping yourself.

A stable Niger republic and ECOWAS will definitely benefit Nigeria

Do not worry about how they will survive as landlocked states, as Senegal will be joining them soon

Politics / Re: IMF Confirms Return Of Petrol Subsidy Under Tinubu - Daily Trust by pandax: 9:32am On Feb 14
ogododo:

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has said the Nigerian government has, through the backdoor, resumed the payment of subsidies on the premium motor spirit (PMS), otherwise known as petrol.

Recall that on May 29, 2023, during his swearing-in speech, President Bola Tinubu announced an end to the petrol subsidy, triggering a hike in the prices of goods and services in the country.

A few weeks later, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) collapsed the different exchange rate regimes into one, with the value of the Naira to the Dollar weakening.

As of last Friday, the Naira was exchanged with one Dollar at the official market at N1,469.97/$1 and in the parallel market at N1,490/$1.

Over the weekend, the IMF issued a statement on the conclusion of its Executive Board’s Post Financing Assessment with Nigeria and it expressed concerns that the government had capped the prices of fuel at retail stations.

The global lender advised the administration of Mr Tinubu to completely stop the payment of subsidies on petrol to free funds to run the government.

In the past few days, there have been reports of queues returning to petrol stations in major cities in the country, but the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited have allayed the fears of consumers, assuring that it has enough to go around.

After the removal of the petrol subsidy in May 2023, the pump price changed from N185 per litre to N40 per litre and then to N568 per litre at NNPC fuelling stations, while others currently sell above N600.

The government had said the prices would fluctuate after subsidy removal from time to time but the pump price has remained steady despite the prices of crude oil in the global market going up and down.

In the statement made available to Business Post, the IMF said the government has “capped retail fuel and electricity prices” ostensibly to “ease the impact of rapidly rising inflation on living conditions,” “thus partially reversing the fuel subsidy removal.”

However, it noted that, “Fuel and electricity subsidies are costly, do not reach those that most need government support and should be phased out completely.”

The bank commended the government’s focus on revenue mobilization and digitalisation, saying this will improve public service delivery, safeguard fiscal sustainability and eliminate the need for CBN financing through ways and means, which have grown above N20 trillion.

The logical thing to do is to subsidize staple foods and perhaps, healthcare and NOT PMS

Sports / Re: AFCON: What Osimhen Told Ekong Before The First Penalty Kick by pandax: 2:12pm On Feb 08
phylshan:
African Footballer of the Year, Victor Osimhen was seen advising Nigeria's Captain, William Troost-Ekong when he was obligated to take a penalty kick.
Following this advice, Ekong executed a world -class straight- at- the - keeper kick, comparable to a C. Ronaldo or L. Messi penalty kick.
For a defender, a strong side taking instead of the miild, frontal strike was expected. However, this strategy adopted by the player could be part of the advice given to him by Osimhen.

That was exactly what Osimhen told Ekong. Go and re-watch the match, and pay attention to the SA bench just before Ekong took the first penalty kick, The SA goalkeeper coach told the SA goalkeeper to dive to his left using sign language, as Ekong has been known before the tournament to kick his penalty at the left. Osimhen saw that and informed Ekong not to go left, even during his 2nd penalty, the keeper went left as advised and Ekong went right.

chisomkachy:


Bafana Bafana

Observations from the Match:

1. Osimhen will make a good coach in the future; when Troost-Ekong is to take the first penalty during the 90mins, the South African goal keeper coach gave sign language to Rondon Williams (SA goalkeeper) to dive left, and it was spotted by Osimhen who went to Troost-Ekong and whisper to him not to go left with his kick

2. Nigeria's Portuguese goalkeeper coach handed a paper to Nwabili containing which side the SA penalty takers will go to, judging from the analysis done on them from their penalty kicks with Cape Verde.

3. I knew NG would win SA once it got to penalty kicks as we have their records against CV and they do not have ours, except for perhaps, Troost-Ekong and Osimhen

4. Paseiro introduced our best penalty takers just before 120mins, tactical wizards - Omeruo, Iheanacho, Moffi,

5. The only person I expected to have missed his own penalty kick was Troost-Ekong as he has taken quite a few kicks in this tournament and not Aina.

6. The World Cup qualifying match with SA will be bloody. Paseiro needs to look for midfielders to reinforce his team

aderadio1:
I really feel disgusted when I see videos and write ups from Northern Nigeria extractions mimicking Asiwaju to ridicule him.

For good eight years we stood by Buhari despite his obvious short comings but just eight months the north have joined the other Nigerians especially the Easterners and SS people to mock Asiwaju.

Everyone can understand the eastern critism as they have no friend in the Nigerian equation and to some extent the Niger Deltans. What I can't rap my head around is the north joining them to attack the President in such manner.

I think it's too myopic for the north because without us they are doomed. They should remember that we are the thin thread holding this country together. Let them not regret their actions.
We cover for them and we should expect same from them to cement the alliance.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

During PDP, no single federal road was okay aside owerri to Onitsha and Enugu to abakaliki in southeast.

At some point, bushes were covering some section of Enugu/onitsha road. It was so bad that animals start breeding and raising kids there, you could kill a Python along that road because everyone abandoned it to use the state road alternative

You are not partisan, even in your Aba videos on YouTube, you say mostly the truth to the power. keep it up!

Please help us tell my Governor, Charles Soludo to come and do Nwaboi under Otti or compare notes with him to know how to construct quality roads.

Class 98 of St Peter’s Special Science celebrates silver jubilee

By O’star Eze

The sky was indeed blue at Awka, Anambra State Capital, recently as captains of industries, professors and accomplished men from various walks of life who were Class of ‘98 at St Peter’s Special Science School, Achina in their checkered blue suit, gathered to celebrate their 25 years of graduating from the institution.

The National President of the Old Boys Association, Reverend Fr Evaristus Ibenegbu, in his pep talk, thanked God for the special talents that comprise the 98 set, taking time to narrate how the set’s valuable inputs had helped keep the association afloat.

He thanked the chairman of the set, Engr Leo Chika Ilozumba and Engr Dr Chidiebere Okolo, the current vice president of the group, for being great pillars in the association and enjoined the class to continue in their noble efforts to keep the memories and legacies of St Peter’s Special Science School, Achina alive and well.

“Celebration is as important as work in every human’s life and one should make celebration an essential part of one’s life to be fulfilled,” Fr Evaristus opined.

In his speech, the set chairman, Engr Leo Ilozumba thanked members of his set for being so supportive of the silver jubilee project. He expressed his delight at the success of the silver jubilee celebration adding that the reunion has made him and other members of his set to see many of their members they had not seen for years.

Highlight of the event was the presentation of award of recognition to individuals who have shown exceptional support to the set, which was done with the assistance of the association’s Anambra State chairman, Comrade Chibuike Ogunwa, the National President elect of the association, Engr Emeka Offiah, and the representative for the ‘99 set, Comrade Osita Eze. There was also the cutting of their jubilee cake as well as a dance session by members of the set and their family members in attendance.

LOVEALAIGBO:


You make good points!

The three south-east governors i have high hopes for and can see they have the capacity, desire and vision to deliver are Otti, Soludo and Mbah! Of the three, Otti has navigated the secession/Biafra/IPOB issue the best, but all three have their hearts in the right place and genuinely mean well for their people!

Besides one or two missteps, i don’t think Soludo and Mbah have done as badly in handling the Biafra issue as some suggest. After all, both have repeatedly called for the release of Mazi Kanu to help douse tension in the region, and help isolate and identify the 5th-columnists and state agents fomenting insecurity in the region just so IPOB and Mazi Kanu can be blamed! Soludo in particular has been making this call for the release of Mazi Kanu since the time of Buhari up till now, but the Buhari/Tinubu hegemonic alliance has ignored these calls! The one misstep Mbah made was to invite the murderous Nigerian security to police the protest in Enugu on the sealing of businesses that didn’t open on Mondays, in which one poor soul was shot dead! I hope he’s guided better in future, and doesn’t toe the line of some useless governor in the south-east who delights in inviting the murderous Nigerian army to murder his citizens and burn down entire villages!

Given the nature of the political-economy we are subjected to in Nigeria, south-east governors have a very delicate balancing act to manage: they try not to offend their people, who are rightfully despondent and fed up with Nigeria, while at the same time trying not to antagonise the Fulani/Yoruba hegemonic alliance that is clearly anti-Igbo and looking for any excuse to work against Igbo interests!

I agree with you especially on Otti, Soludo and Mbah making the right noise and on track to develop our region. The 2024 budget of these 3 governors followed same trajectory and full of ambitions for disruptive change.

Hmmm the other two, I do not understand their allegiance, especially the supreme court governor

Approximately 240sqm of stone coated steptiles (240 * 4200 = N1.008m) with kingpost height of between 20 - 23 feet. Wood will cost around 700k , roughly 74m of ridge caps at N1700 per m(700*1700=N125.8k), 3pkts of treated nails at 30k and 1 bag each of 3 & 2 inches nails. Workmanship like 75k for step tikes installation and 130k for wood skeleton

He's in charge of FCT where all security and command centers are domiciled.

Wike has once again proved to be a political strategist, guess he's learning fast from Jagaban.
The defection of 27 loyal lawmakers was a perfect strategy to keep Fubara in check. Wherever Fubara goes whether APC or remaining in PDP, he meets Wike right there. If he defect to LP, he's finished!. The situation of Fubara is quite different from that of Obaseki, Obaseki got away because Oshiomole at the time had become ordinary, stripped off his powers and return back to his village in Edo. That heiped Obaseki scaled smoothly but with Wike, the seat is currently very hot on Fubara's ass.

Politics / Re: Igbos Are On A Rebound, Don’t Allow Biafra To Stop The Momentum by pandax: 9:37pm On Dec 09, 2023
SSFeedsNigeria:
I once saw data from the 1960’s that showed how the old Eastern region (comprising the entire SE with Rivers, Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom and Cross River) was the fastest growing economy in Nigeria, and among the fastest in the world. The region was registering new businesses far more than Western and northern regions combined! Then the civil war happened in 1967-70 and that momentum was lost. The region turned into a sorry state. New centers of growth and investments shifted to Lagos/Oyo and Kano/Kaduna axis.

Infrastructure in the East decayed. Investments fled the region. Even Igbos themselves abandoned their region and instead chose to invest in the new centers of growth outside their region. Onitsha deterioted. Aba decayed. Enugu, Owerri, Nnewi, Awka, Umuahia, Abakilike etc. became glorified villages. People looked down on those that choose to remain in the East as unambitious people who don’t want to make it big in life.

From the 1980’s, 1990’s and up to early 2000’s there were constant religious riots in the North, and each time it occurred, Igbos and their investments became targets. As a result, calls for “aku ruo ulo” which loosely means “bring your investments home” became rife but unfortunately, the East was still in a very bad shape. This pushed Igbos to start making demands from their governors on infrastructure improvements. Having realized that North was no longer safe for them and their investments, Igbos began to move massively into Lagos & Abuja in the interim, along with their investments. Not long after, the aku ruo ulo calls began to yield dividends as Igbo investments began to trickle into their region.

As Igbo population & assets in Lagos spiked, Yorubas began to get uncomfortable. Then 2023 election happened & they weaponized tribalism. Several Igbo dominated markets got burnt. It was followed by the demolition of houses and plazas in Igbo dominated areas too. Just like North in the previous years, Igbos also realized that Lagos isn’t safe for them and their investments too.

Almost same situation that occurred in the North in the years prior to 2000, is now occurring in the West. The period Igbos began to abandon North coincided with its economic collapse. I’m not saying that North collapsed economically because Igbos abandoned it but several other factors added to it.

Now, calls for Igbos to divest away from Lagos region is happening at a period foreign investors are also abandoning the region. Lagos/SW loss now becomes SE gain as investments are now pouring into the East in an unprecedented manner. What makes it more remarkable is that SE is rising when other regions are stagnating or even regressing.

Just like in the 1960’s when the civil war truncated the rise of the East, Igbos should avoid history repeating itself. You can make IPOB or ESN your pressure group but never escalate things to unmanageable crises level.

Another good thing is that Nigeria is finally being restructured without many being aware. The North may or may not be aware that Nigeria is being restructured against their age long hindrance to it. However, there is little or nothing they can do to stop it. Fuel subsidy removal, unbundling of power generation and distribution, removal of certain things from the exclusive list etc are restructuring that will make regions grow at their own pace. This is the opportunity Igbos need to roar back like the Asian Tigers and it is gratifying to note that the prognosis indicate positive signs. Aba, Onitsha and Nnewi are back on track. SME’s and manufacturing in the SE is thriving once again.

Unfortunately for the northern region, they failed to invest in Human Resources. If Tinubu sustains the covert restructuring, the region is likely to collapse further without new investments and rising insecurity. With foreign investors also fleeing Lagos region & Igbos doing same, the SE is now poised to become the new axis of growth in Nigeria. Also, with AFTCA now in place, Lagos no longer has locational advantage like in the past, when ECOWAS was the trading region. Now, the entire Africa is, and SE is well positioned between West and Central Africa.

Igbos can truly achieve their mission even within a dysfunctional BUT DECENTRALIZED Nigeria.

Nothing to add. The game is ongoing, Anambra, Abia and Enugu onboard already. Imo is playing APC politics and Ebonyi is 50% onboard. The good news is that Aniomas of Delta and Igboid groups in Rivers got the memo.

We can build the metaphorical Biafra in Nigeria. Africa is our playground now

Ifeanyi Ubah: Am In APC to Rescue Anambra From 20 Years Political Stagnation.

By OGEMDI OZOEMENAM

The Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Senator Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has said he joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) to bring meaningful development to Anambra State that has eluded the state for the past 20 years.

He regretted that the state has been politically stagnant for 20 years under the grip of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), but now he is in APC to help connect Anambra to the centre to actualise meaningful but sustainable development to the state as the gateway to the Southeast.

Senator Ubah stated this in Awka during an event organised by APC, Anambra State Chapter to welcome him, Senator Uche Lilian Ekwunife, their supporters and other new members into the party.

He lambasted Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo for failure to conduct Local Government election after two years in power, against what he promised Ndi Anambra during the 2021 Governorship election.


According to him, it is incapacity for a leader not to provide opportunities for his teeming youths, stressing that 1youth,2skills of Soludo administration is a mere jamboree.

Also speaking, Senator Uche Ekwunife thanked the APC party faithful for accepting them into the fold and promised that she would do her best to ensure that the party gains traction in the state.

She however called on party faithful to support the drive to move the party forward in the state with the aim to galvanise the party towards truly connecting to the centre.

While welcoming the new members into APC, the State Chairman of the party, Chief Basil Ejidike expressed happiness to receive such personalities with great political pedigree into their fold and called on them to be diligent in propagating the internal harmony of the party in Anambra state.

He called for unity, commitment and discipline in the party and frowned at indiscipline, anti-party sentiments and disloyalty to party leaders in order to properly reposition APC in the state.

Chief Ejidike reiterated that the reward system in the party will be enhanced to sustain trust and therefore pleaded for federal government appointments, which he said before now, have been given to non-APC members in the state.

My Anambra is doing well, and we have been in the right hands for nearly 20 years now. We don't want your APC or that leaking umbrella party near our state. We jump and pass!
