How Nigeria Created Mass Poverty Over 15 Years with $107.4 billion! – Premium Times Report
As I have noted, Nigeria’s problem is never money: we do have decent enough money in this country. Our biggest problem is paralysis at all levels of leadership. Interestingly, over the next 14 days, Nigerians will have opportunities to make their calls via elections. So, the trending Premium Times report which noted that in the last 15 years Nigeria has spent $107.4 billion (the equivalent of N15.46 trillion) from the Excess Crude Account (ECA) under the administrations of Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Musa Yar Adua, Goodluck Jonathan and incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari while recording mass poverty is nothing new.

Beyond Exodus To Canada, Beyond Better Wages, Nigeria Can WIN
In 2011, I brought a team of 11 Nigerian graduates to build a mobile development business exclusively on Android. Yes, that was the time when Blackberry was on the mountaintop, in Nigeria, but living in America gave me a small edge on the potentials of Android. We ran Fasmicro Masterclass and training, bringing 100 graduates together, and at the end we would onboard the ones we desired. Along the way, we had great quarters, winning a business with Shell Nigeria. Led by a first class graduate of Covenant University, we found success. The young man, just 22 years, and his… The post Beyond Exodus To Canada, Beyond Better Wages, Nigeria Can WIN appeared first on Tekedia.

MultiChoice Freezes DStv Premium Price in South Africa, Nigerians Will Not Mind
It is a case that needs to be made before MultiChoice: if you freeze the price of DStv Premium in South Africa, it makes sense to do the same in Nigeria. Your argument for the price freeze is solid – you want to make sure your customers in South Africa do not experience undue financial burdens. Well done for thinking about them. MultiChoice has announced that it will “freeze the price” of DStv Premium from 1 April 2019, ensuring customers will pay the same rate for their package.

TechCrunch Falls To Subscription
It is not really news that TechCrunch, a pioneer tech-focused blogging platform, is going subscription. Without subscription, TechCrunch has no future. Adjacent to the ruined empire of Yahoo via Oath/Verizon, TechCrunch was walking dead. Simply, because of Facebook and Google, no massively organized news website can survive without subscription unless you are the Guardian UK which knows how to beg for donations. Yet, I give the Guardian three years to join the full party which New York Times, WSJ, FT, WashPost, Bloomberg, and others have since toasted. I won’t bury the lede.

Fix The Root Cause of Failure – Understand That Failure Is Part of Success
This is from a LinkedIn comment on the piece titled – The biggest failure is NOT fixing things that lead to failures. One of my greatest pieces of wisdom on time management cleverly linked to success & failure! Period! Even greater than my masterpiece “Eat that frog” by Brian Tracy.

Nigerians’ Big Exodus To Canada
It is a serious issue and one I do not have the moral fiber to discuss since I also resigned a job and left for America many years ago. Yet, because commenting is free, I will go ahead.  There is a big exodus happening in Nigeria right now, and the destination is Canada. When I say exodus, I mean real type like the one described in the recorded Exodus. Lol. As at 2017, there were over 11,000 Nigerian students in Canada.

The Illusion of Localization in Pure Web Business
You want to start that web startup. You have looked left and right, within Nigeria, and came to the conclusion that no single company was in that territory. So, you extrapolated, I have no competition. Unfortunately, that you wished so does not mean that is the state of things. There is a diminishing abundance that comes with Internet: you are global and local at the same time. So, are your competitors! Because internet is unbounded and unconstrained, most times, a local company faces competition from any part of the world. You need to have that in mind and not judge… The post The Illusion of Localization in Pure Web Business appeared first on Tekedia.
