Can Diamond Bank Accept Counter Offers?
I get it – Nigeria is an interesting place. But on this Diamond Bank issue, if another group of investors makes a counter offer, above $200m Access Bank is acquiring it, would the law demand that offer be considered? For a public company – I had expected a window for counter-offers. This morning, some people are coming together: they want to save Diamond Bank. (Do not count on that; many are traders in Aba and Onitsha. They became wealthy because of Diamond Bank and are unhappy.) Can someone explain what the law states on public companies? Are they required to… The post Can Diamond Bank Accept Counter Offers? appeared first on Tekedia.

Financing an Engineering Venture – A Tech Startup View
by Austyne DURU Capital is an important element to every project as it is defined as one of the triple constraint – limiting factors of a set of tasks that must have a start and finish. Every project honours this rule including technology-driven ideation, expansion, and improvisation. In fact, the amount of money required to bring an idea to fruition should be planned with a mindset of repeated tasks in the case of experimental projects. For engineering system development, there will be minimal deviations once the project planning is done holistically. In many technical ventures, the capital turnaround time is… The post Financing an Engineering Venture – A Tech Startup View appeared first on Tekedia.

Saving Nigeria’s Diamond Nation
Today, I received many questions from entrepreneurs and businesspeople asking what happened on Diamond Bank which announced that Access Bank had acquired (yes, “merger”) it. It was HARD news because many fellow citizens would possibly see dislocations in their careers. I spent time thinking about a business card an auto shop mechanic gave me last week when I visited to change car oil: McKenzie’s – since 1957. The Board of Diamond Bank Plc (“Diamond Bank”) today announces that following a strategic review leading to a competitive process, the Board has selected Access Bank Plc (“Access Bank”) as the preferred bidder… The post Saving Nigeria’s Diamond Nation appeared first on Tekedia.

Pains as Access Bank Accesses Diamond Bank, Reigniting the Nigerian Challenge
Bloomberg and local news have reported that Access Bank had acquired Diamond Bank in Nigeria. It is a very painful one, personally, because Diamond Bank seeded my career. As I have written, it was the only company I ever-interviewed in Nigeria, and the only one I sought employment: other jobs had come without applications or interviews. With a category-king leading innovative spirit, Diamond Bank was a peerless institution at its peak. It pioneered Nigeria’s modern banking with the best banking product ever in Nigerian history. Yes, the Diamond Integrated Banking System (DIBS) transformed Nigeria and solved the menace of armed… The post Pains as Access Bank Accesses Diamond Bank, Reigniting the Nigerian Challenge appeared first on Tekedia.

I am not attacking your beloved Bitcoin; I simply said “shine your eyes”. That phrase in Nigeria means “be careful”. The liberator now needs liberation.

Calling for Butiku – the Buhari and Atiku Debate; Jan 19 2019
Good morning Nigeria – the Vice Presidential debate which took place yesterday was solid. Now, we need to ask Mr. President (Buhari, the APC flagbearer) to confirm to debate Mr. Atiku (PDP flagbearer) on January 19. While debate is not overly correlated with capacity to offer good governance, yet it forces leaders to learn things and understand things they might not have bothered. So, the only way to get them to spend time thinking about us (the people) and the economy is to ask them to debate. When that happens, they at least spend time to know Nigeria before they… The post Calling for Butiku – the Buhari and Atiku Debate; Jan 19 2019 appeared first on Tekedia.

My Interview with United Nations Environment – Ndubuisi Ekekwe
The United Nations Environment has run an interview I granted the global institution few days ago. The focus was measuring the earth to save the earth: yes, with precision agriculture we can at least understand what is happening to soils we farm. For Ndubuisi Ekekwe, Nigerian founder of precision farming startup Zenvus, African farming must change because traditional practices keep many farmers trapped in a cycle of poverty. “What we have been doing for generations has not worked so now there needs to be a paradigm shift to try something new that can turn farmers into business people rather than custodians… The post My Interview with United Nations Environment – Ndubuisi Ekekwe appeared first on Tekedia.
