As Depositors Choose Treasury Bills Over Fixed Deposit, Nigerian Banks Raise Deposit Rates by 140 Percent
The Nigerian banking industry is facing an unprecedented challenge from the emerging fintech market that is rapidly fixing every friction in the payment business, especially cross-border payment frictions. The situation does not only scuttle the current growth of banks, it also threatens their future. Nevertheless, while fintech remains a threat that the Nigerian banking industry needs a formula to neutralize, there is another situation that the banks have made a drastic decision to arrest. In the first half of the year (H1’21), the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) raised the interest rate on one-year Treasury Bills (TBs) to 10.1%. The… The post As Depositors Choose Treasury Bills Over Fixed Deposit, Nigerian Banks Raise Deposit Rates by 140 Percent appeared first on Tekedia.

Why I Use 210 Million As Nigeria’s Population!
The population of Nigeria is more than 200 million; stop using 187 million as that now is stale. Growing the number of citizens is one area Nigeria has outperformed the world. And it will not stop. Yes, recall the governor who gathered young men together in 2019, and told them that provided they keep having more babies and marrying many wives that they would decide who runs Nigeria. So, UNESCO, UN, WHO, etc can put out any initiative, the fact remains that population is a political weapon in Nigeria, and it will continue to grow. From the electoral umpire, the… The post Why I Use 210 Million As Nigeria’s Population! appeared first on Tekedia.

Tackling Nigeria’s Population Issues With Technology
Population arguably remains the most integral part of the anticipated developmental stride of any existing society. It is so, because it’s one of the fundamental factors that determine the society’s net worth. However, as we take into cognizance the inevitable impact of population on societal uplift, it’s noteworthy that it is only the human population that bears such idiosyncrasy. It suffices to assert that the population of other forms of organisms is relatively inconsequential, economic wise, compared to that of humankind. Two prime factors – natural and human resources – determine the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of every nation. It’s… The post Tackling Nigeria’s Population Issues With Technology appeared first on Tekedia.

In London, there is ‘Marcopolo Finance’, In Singapore, there is ‘Contour’, there is also ‘Trade Information Network’ with representation in different regions including the US, Germany, UK, Australia, Hongkong etc. and in Africa, Union Systems has… The post Is this the end of corporate trade finance portals? appeared first on Tekedia.
