A Good Memo by the Central Bank of Nigeria
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has updated its policy and we need to commend the apex bank. In a memo dated Nov 30, 2020 (see below), the bank reversed its policy, making it possible that remittance can be wired into a domiciliary account in Nigeria, with the recipient having access to the money in the foreign currency (say US dollars).  In an earlier directive, the bank had removed that flexibility, pegging it around N388 per US$1, and that necessitated an uncommon rally against the Naira in the global currency market, hitting close to N500 per dollar. What happened was…

Italy Fines Apple $12m As EU Bloc Amplifies Antitrust Regulation
Italy’s Competition Authority (AGCM) said on Monday it had fined Apple €10 million ($12 million) for “aggressive and misleading iphone commercial activities”. The regulator said in a statement that the tech company failed to clarify that it’s under certain circumstances, when it advertised several iphone models as water resistant. “The message did not make it clear that this property can only be found under specific conditions. For example, during specific and controlled laboratory tests with the use of static and pure water, and not under normal conditions of use of the devices by consumers,” AGCM said. It added that Apple…

What Do You Really Know About Nigeria’s 575 Football Matches in 70 Years
When it is about understanding the history of football in Nigeria, one is likely to read that the game started in Calabar or Lagos. For the account that favours Calabar, the former capital of Nigeria, the Christian Missionary should be attributed to the emergence of the game in the country. The game started in Lagos, especially at Ajegunle. Information has it that the city is the cradle of Nigerian soccer. The first recorded football match in Nigeria was in 1904. The first official match was played in 1949 against the Sierra Leone Team. The Nigerian Team won the match by…

The Possible Goodluck Jonathan’s 2023 APC Presidency!
It seems some politically sagacious northern states’ governors in Nigeria’s ruling party, APC, want former President Goodluck Jonathan to be APC  presidential flagbearer in 2023, if Jonathan agrees to decamp from PDP to APC. Lol. That is really unfair as Ndubuisi Ekekwe has not even tasted any water in Aso Rock, and they are focusing on making more presidents out of former presidents. Haba Nigeria….Obasanjo, Buhari…and Jonathan. It does not sound really crazy if you look at the permutation: Jonathan can only serve a single term. Period. And if that is the case, he is the only Southern Nigeria politician…

The Message from the State Capital
A state executive leadership communicated today that it has approved our proposal: providing management capabilities to artisans in a south eastern state in Nigeria. Yes, they have done well – trained the youth on farming, carpentry, bricklaying, tailoring, trading and even coding. But most would likely remain sole proprietors unless we make them entrepreneurs. That distinction is vital for the nation and the state. By January, we will begin the process of turning artisans to become entrepreneurs; His Excellency will kickoff the event. Our Faculty, Victor Ndukauba, Deputy Managing Director of Afrinvest West Africa, did all the work in his…

Maintaining the Objectivity of the Academic Sphere: An Open Letter to Nigerian Lecturers
I listened to a lecturer discussing, or rather describing, the situation of things in the country in a packed lecture hall. Her lecture had something to do with economics but, somehow, it delved into politics and, of course, the issue of the president’s competency became the focal point. I became keen on what was going on in the class when some students began to debate on the conspiracy theory surrounding the Buhari/Jibril saga. I was actually enjoying the whole thing until the lecturer, who was regarded as the authority in the class, broke into the debate to take sides. Immediately…
