Why Nigeria Needs Tax Innovation to Save Our Schools
When you finish from a Nigerian university, within months you are history. In top U.S. universities, they never forget: from helping you get discounts on insurance to better deals with car dealers, they keep supporting. I got this from my alma mater – it wants me to save on insurance, and they know that renewal comes in days! And once in a while, they ask for a change. Yes, you can put in an envelope anything you can afford. And within weeks, they send you a document to help you deduct it during tax filing. Simply, the universities thrive because… The post Why Nigeria Needs Tax Innovation to Save Our Schools appeared first on Tekedia.

Central Bank of Nigeria Explains MTN, Bank Repatriation Fines with Timelines
We sincerely apologize to the Central Bank of Nigeria for our comments when the bank imposed fines on MTN and some banks over some foreign transfer transactions. Yes, MTN Nigeria has another issue: now, it is coming from the Central Bank of Nigeria. The bank asked it yesterday to refund $8.13B (with B) which the apex bank said the mobile giant (allegedly) illegally repatriated. This is the CBN Letter to MTN (MTN-Letter-of-outcome-of-investigation). Contrary to the statements from some of the entities, CBN actually gave them notices to defend themselves before going public. He said a one-week deadline for MTN and the banks to… The post Central Bank of Nigeria Explains MTN, Bank Repatriation Fines with Timelines appeared first on Tekedia.

This has been uncovered by research conducted by ROAM (Ringier One Africa Media), who is encompassing the market-leading job portals in West Africa (Jobberman) and East Africa (Brightermonday), as well as Executive Recruitment and HR Solutions firm The African Talent Company. The company has analysed data sets from more… The post Why 90% of African Job Applicants Are Struggling to Land Interviews appeared first on Tekedia.

The Bitcoin’s Mindless Optimistic Exuberance in Nigeria
The liberator now needs liberation. Now, national parliaments should pass laws that would say “Bitcoin cannot go down but up”. Lol.

Nigeria’s Domestic Debt and Economic Recession – An SME’s View
By Austyne DURU There is no perfect system in the world and so I assume that Nigeria is part of that imperfection. What I do not understand is how a country defies every known economic and social principles, sometimes by deliberately inflicting pains on itself. This is my sane interpretation of the economic recession that hit Nigeria, yet the lessons seem not to be learnt in any way. Our domestic debts stands at N12 trillion (or $40 billion), as of June 2018, which is substantially high when compared to our GDP of $400 billion for the year 2017. There is a truth government bonds and bills are… The post Nigeria’s Domestic Debt and Economic Recession – An SME’s View appeared first on Tekedia.
