Dogara charges Nigerians on attitudinal change

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has called on Nigerians to have a change in approach and orientation for the country to make progress even as the nation is passing through challenging times.

Dogara said if Nigeria is to observe significant improvement in quality of leadership and government, the citizens must change their ways of life as leaders are recruited from among them.

The Speaker, who made the call at the weekend during a thanksgiving service organised by an associate of the parliament, Jagaba Adams Jagaba at ECWA Church, Chigwa, Kaduna State, according to a statement issued by his spokesman, Turaki Hassan, said that while Nigerians expect leaders to live higher standards of life as role models, the followers must also understand that leaders are recruited news from naija among them.

He, consequently, charged Nigerians to, as a matter of importance, reveal higher standards of runs even as they expect same from their leaders.

There exists constantly expectations from citizens for leaders to show a higher standard of behavior. Clearly, it's great that those who call themselves leaders should always aspire to keep higher standards.

But what is wrong with the story, especially in naija breakin news, is that in many instances, citizens expect that only leaders must live above board. This country can only make progress if all the citizens and leaders resolve that in their daily endeavors, they'll keep the greatest of standards.

Because if you anticipate only leaders to do the right thing, the direction recruiting procedure is such that leaders always emerge from the people.

Dogara admonished politicians to place their trust in God because power comes from God, victory comes from God, no one, regardless of how strong he or she's, can give you power.

In his testimony, Jagaba urged Nigerians to eschew religious and ethnic sentiments, which he said, have divided the nation for decades.

He said the electorate should instead lay emphasis on individual nature and never political party association, saying that he has forgiven all those who plotted evil against him in the 2015 general elections.

In his sermon, ECWA President, Revd (Dr.) Jeremiah Gado, said by design, God created and saved humanity to live a life of gratitude, service, praise and worship.
Gains, pitfalls of Nigerias currency swap deal with China

Separated stakeholders say policy may facilitate company, stifle local firms

For varied stakeholders in the economy, the Federal Governments recent currency swap deal with China holds both bright prospects and grave implications for Nigeria even as the naira inched up against the dollar at the weekend at the parallel market.

During his official trip to the worlds second biggest market, President Muhammadu Buhari struck a naira and yuan swap deal, scripted to facilitate trade trades between both countries, devoid of present exchange challenges with the United State dollar.

Moreover, the deal, according to Presidency sources, has the potenrial of shoring up the value of the nations money, in the forex market, through a concomitant emergent bidding scheme, with strategic reduced interest in dollar and other major currencies, other than the yuan.

The currency swap deal consists of an arrangement between two central banks, a minumum of one of which must be an international currency issuer, to swap their currencies. The central banks party to the swap trade can give the proceeds of the swap, against collaterals they deem sufficient, to the commercial banks within their jurisdiction, to provide them with temporary liquidity in a foreign currency.

But pessimists pointed out the swap deal was not consummated between the two nations apex banks but between Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Chinas ICBC- the worlds biggest lender by total assets and market capitalisation. While this may not impact the objects of the swap deal at all, it raises some fundamental sovereign dilemmas, according to an analyst who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Cowrie Investment Limited, Johnson Chukwu explained the currency swap scheme would address , on a short-term basis, the present liquidity challenge in the countries foreign exchange market.

He said: I think that Nigerias overriding objective for the currency swap will be to address short-term foreign currency liquidity challenges that has led to CBNs inability to fulfill foreign currency demands. With the currency swap, depending on the value, a significant portion of Nigerias import invoices from China would now be denominated and settled in yuan, thereby reducing the interest in dollar by Nigerias importers.

However, he pointed out the major draw back to the currency swap policy is that the unrestricted access to yuan, at an overvalued naira exchange rate, if the N30/RMB is the predetermined exchange rate, will certainly support importation and stifle local production of goods.

It is suggested the Federal Government should try to integrate a strategy much like that of the cement industry policy, which would need some of the imports from China to be made locally after a defined timeline, especially if Nigeria has relative making advantage for such products. Examples that can easily come to mind include fabrics, plastics, ceramics, among others.

He explained that the gain of inclusion of Chinese Yuan as part of Nigerian reserve currency was done about five years ago by the immediate past CBN governor, chiefly to diversify the reservation and reduce the currency risk related to the U.S. dollar.

That action was taken at a period when the U.S. market was especially vulnerable due to the weakness of their market after the global financial crises triggered by sub-prime mortgage.

In his reaction, the National President, National Palm Produce Association of Nigeria (NPPAN), Henry Olatujoye, welcomed the currency swap deal, describing it as an incredible measure that would significantly reduce the increasing pressure on the U.S. dollar, which has gone haywire in the foreign exchange marketplace.

In accordance with Olatujoye , the decision has the ability of bringing double investment to the state from China on one hand and from the U.S. on the other.

The NPPAN president allayed any concern the determination could bring about the higher importation of Chinese goods into Nigeria, citing the economic competition or money war between China and America.

He, nevertheless, expressed the fear that European countries may not be well disposed to it because it's capable of adversely impacting their trade balance with Nigeria, warning that their stakeholders could frustrate the move.

The Chairman, Mobile Software Alternative, Chris Uwaje, believed that the naira to yuan swap deal should reduce the pressure on the naira if properly executed.

According to him, the agreement if it becomes a reality, means the de facto currency, dollar , will no further hold on the import and export deals between Nigeria and China.

Uwaje continued: We dont should use dollar to pay because its going to be more expensive, we pay with yuan. By so doing we avoid every form of round tripping.

Uwaje advocated Buharis economical team to see how a state can really leverage on the technology art of China for naija .com breaking news to achieve a sustainable market.

According to Gbade Buraimoh, a Lagos-based financial expert, the pursuit for dollar through banks will undoubtedly reduce, as all trades between Nigeria and China will maintain yuan in place of dollar.

He detected that oil sales from Nigeria to China would be settled in Chinese currency, stressing that accessibility to yuan would also be simpler.

The swap will eliminate challenges originating from transactions with the dollar and promote company flexibility between Nigerian and Chinese, Buraimoh explained.

The Director-General of Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Muda Yusuf concurred that the swap deal would smoothen the payment system in the bilateral trade between the two nations but stressed that it might not really fortify the naira in the foreign exchange marketplace, as the country would need to enhance its productive base to achieve that.

An Abuja-based international affairs and diplomacy expert, Kadiri Abdulrahman, viewed the currency swap deal as a confident move towards enriching the value of the naira, thus improving access to cheaper foreign exchange, in favour of members of the business community.

The Director- General of the African Affairs Department of Chinas Foreign Ministry, Lin Songtian told reporters in Beijing after the agreement was signed by the Governors of Nigerias Central bank and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Ltd. (ICBC) that the Renminbi (yuan) is free to flow among different banks in Nigeria and has been contained in the foreign exchange reserves of Nigeria.

Nigeria is not the first country that China would enter into this agreement with. The Asian powerhouse has multiple year currency swap agreements of the Renminbi with Argentina, Belarus, Brazil, Hong Kong, Iceland, Indonesia, Malaysia,Singapore, South Korea, United Kingdom and Uzbekistan.

Based on the Peoples Bank of China (PBoC), those swap arrangements were intended not only to stabilise the international financial market, but also to ease bilateral trade and investment.

Meanwhile, the benefit of the currency swap deal and other understandings naija breaking news today reached in Beijing during naijaloaded latest news Buharis excursion to the Far East Asia nation has rubbed off on the aviation sector, as a Nigerian carrier, Air Peace declared that it would shortly commence scheduled flight to China from Enugu.

Chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema revealed at the Enugu Economic Summit the airline has been made Nigerias official flag carrier for the route.

According to him, with the expected ease on the pressure on the dollar, it'd bring down the value of the dollar with regards to the naira, which he said would now make it possible for American investors to put money into the Nigerian economy again.

In his view, the current high rate of the dollar in Nigeria had in recent months discouraged American and Western investors in the Nigerian economy.

The authorities and the flying public created a yearning gap, all the agreements in this state are leaned to one side, the foreign airlines, but this government of Muhammadu Buhari has started to do things differently recognising the local airlines and seeing that in Air Peace there will be a lot of quality, so they really decided to give us when we applied it didnt take time before they gave it to us, said Onyema.
Diversification of Nigeria’s market urgent, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday in Guangzhou, China said his government would take urgent measures to restructure Nigeria’s economy by supporting new investments in mining, agriculture and manufacturing.

The President, who stated this at a reception in his honour by the Communist Party of China, said nigeria news naija would welcome the support of foreign investors, the Chinese government and local businesses for efforts to diversify the country’s economy.

Mr Ekpo Nta, Chairman Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), has said that Nigerians must conclude to reduce corruption to the barest minimum by eschewing and acting against it.

My Dear naija breaking news online Youths,

For some of us, water don pass garri. For many people, we're stuck in this wilderness with no spot to go, no hope for tomorrow. Me, AreaFada, I understand what we all are going through right now. Eyes dey see Red. The question many are asking is Where's the change assured us? Really, my men, these are crazy times, and most people are about to snarl. I dey feel una die. I comprehend your pain, your hopelessness in an environment that's promised so much but delivered so little; with most of our senseless riffraffs called leaders still walking around shamelessly as overlords, masters and owners of the acreage. Una cup don total.

How many folks dey look for occupations wey no dey? See how consistent frustration and stagnation dey destroy many people! What about the ones that have panned all the goodness they know dwells in them to become what they themselves dont understand because it is becoming a lethal rat race and guy must live? I signify you all in this Naija wilds, filled with this much wickedness. I must admit, I 've had periods of lengthy self-pity, sometimes I've felt conned by this state, a few other times I've wished I was still at the prime of my youth so I could take out some of those people who have sold our future. Na God go penalize dem.

The ones that have power and are in power are far too comfortable to see the pain of people who endure, and those who suffer have no power to speak the truth to power. Oh Naija! Which way?

Yet critical our situation is, it's time for the extraordinary Nigerian youth to save us, as no country ever develops without breaking away from the clutches of sycophants, mediocrity and narrow-minded mindsets.

The extraordinary youth is the one who in-spite of the gory narrative, woes and disappointments from all nook and cranny, realizes that quitting or giving up on him/herself just isn't an option. Stand tall even when you've got no reason to stand.

However bad things are, I still see rays of light, with the narratives of youngsters like Akeem Adeyemo who went on to graduate with finest overall consequence after falling upon myriads of challenges academically, socially and financially, Ade I hail.

View Adeyemos full story and images here.

See her complete story and images here

These are pointers to the fact, that regardless of how awful things are, staying focused, tenacious, and consistent will get us closer to our dreams.

It is well, weather dem like am or not.

A new music reality TV show is set to reward true gifts in Nigeria.

Tagged Naija Hall of Fame Africa (NHFA), the reality show packaged by Fixit Entertainment will kick off this month, March 2016 with the purpose of changing the face of music in Nigeria.

In accordance with the organiser Emeka Godfrey, the reasons for the music reality TV show is to supply a stage for young, aspiring entertainers to use their potentials. In the light of this, some players in the music business have come together to create the new music competition/ reality TV show titled the Naija Hall of Fame Africa.
The show promises a mix of amusement and imagination while supplying fresh music theories, contents, and street sense flavoured with style, dance steps, beats and a lot more. The thought behind this really is to discover and develop new African talents.
In the coming days, celeb guests and judges for the show are expected to be formally announced.

The Lagos state government on Tuesday closed down a fresh lotto firm, Naija Lottery, for running without an operating permit and legal licenses from the state.

The combined team arrived at the Naija Lottery office found in Jibowu place of Lagos state and went to seal up the business which, they claimed, was operating illegally in Lagos state.
Initially the law enforcers confronted a bit of resistance in the security guards and an officer of the company who attempted to stop them from getting access to the premises.
Eventually, another staff member of the business interceded, and the LSBS team was permitted to conduct their enforcement obligation.

Meanwhile a senior staff of Naija Lottery, merely identified as George, promised that the business was duly managing under the law of Nigeria and had procured a permit from the National Lottery Regulatory Commission which, he said, ensures their services and lotto tasks in any part of Nigeria.
Umaren countered the claims, saying that the company had neglected to produce a license from the Lagos states regulatory board, which he said is the requirement of the law of the state before the commencement of a lotto business or any enterprise that is game-related.
He added that anything contrary to the gratification of such requirement is a violation of the law and illegal.

Kenyan women love foreign guys. That is an open secret. The additional a guy is from Kenya, the better.

Tanzania and Uganda is not foreign. Nigeria and anyplace in West Africa is.

But foreign guys think Kenyan girls are cheapskates. Our girls will bend all the rules to please Naija men. They dont mind dropping their feminism firearms when a Naija bro comes knocking.

Take this example.

Shiro, the dancing queen, was dropping it like its hot, trembling what her mom gave her to the happiness of her man who couldnt conceal his delight.

Oga shouted in the typical Nigerian accent that made the word turn, sound like short ton, as he motivated the passionate dancer to let loose in the four-minute clip, which he promised to delete after the show.

Trust me, if the man in question was a Kasyoki, Kamande or Ondiek, Kenyan women would have taken to the streets to protest.

Remember the contentious Nairobi-based Nigerian businessman Anthony Chinedu?

I've never heard of a Kenyan guy marrying a Nigerian...

This caused a debate pegged on why Kenyan women fall head-over-heels for Nigerian guys.

This writer spent a couple of days in Nigeria which gave her an opportunity to observe the Naija brodas, some of whom pointedly stated that its cheaper to keep a Kenyan woman than a Naija one.

But are Kenyan girls extremely affordable in the eyes of foreign men? Possibly, if you ask those Nigerian brodas our sisters adore to bits. And this is why they are affordable according to the Ogas:

They're simple chips funga

For most Nigerian men, wooing their women is a service.

You see, a Kenyan woman is very different. It's possible for you to meet in a club and wind up with her in your house without the expectations. Naija girls, on the other hand, expect one to bring down heavens for them. You might even end up purchasing a house for her before it is possible to take her to bed, claimed Damilola.

Desperate for affordable beer

While Kenyan women easily drown bottles of stouts (without blending with soda), a Nigerian will just swill stout drinks at her local. The moment a Nigerian mama saunters into a nightclub, there is man already purchasing drinks for her.

Diana Bada, a Russia-created Nigerian musician, who was in Kenya for a month agrees that Kenyan women are, indeed, distinct.

In Nigeria, its almost clear that girls dont spend girls in a cabaret. Our men take care of us and thats their duty. It does not necessarily mean that you will go home and sleep with him. Its only our culture, said the musician who performed at Ole Sereni in Nairobi, in Kilifi and in Mombasa.

Diana says that she was shocked to see her friend panic when one of their Nigerian friends volunteered to drop them home.

They thus offered us a car to drop us home and save us cab cash. We were even given clothes by the people who also possess a fashion house. My friend nearly had a heart attack thinking the guy desired more. It took a lot of convincing for her to realise that thats how girls are treated in Nigeria, Diana told The Nairobian.

Sponsor attitude

Socialites have single-handedly convinced young girls that there's good life in Nigeria. Actually, nowadays most local girls are posing naked online, showing off their bottoms expecting someone in Lagos will take note and fly them outside.

Nigerian musician, General Pipe, claims its not always as rosy as it appears in Nigeria, but is shocked at the lengths Kenyan girls go just to tote a Nigerian man.

I understand one Kenyan socialite whose first visit to Nigeria was devastating. She nearly slept on the roads, but was saved by a fellow Kenyan. She spent the rest of her days cosying up with any guy with a nice footwear. Naija babes can get you pay for his or her flight to your own nation and never show up because they're going to somehow find a method to sell the ticket! said the musician who lived in Kenya in 2012.

They adore to chop, chop about

Kenyan women believe its a badge of honour to sleep with a foreigner after knowing their surname.

Folorunsho Agbede, a Nigerian teacher who was in the state for only a week, says she was shocked at the activities that went on in the hotel she was staying.

I noticed that our Kenyan female counterparts were sharing rooms with our Nigerian male coworkers only two days after we met. I understand several of those guys are wed back at home, so this actually came as a shocker. Im not saying that we're perfect, maybe we are just hard, said Folorunsho.

They will have low self-esteem

Kenyan women aren't confident as their naija news headlines counterparts. Kenyan lasses are also more reserved. Olamide Ojuon, a Nairobi-based physical education instructor, says he'd date a Kenyan girl, but never wed one. I simply feel that Kenyan girls usually are not confident. I wish I could demonstrate the messages I get from girls I 've broken up with and how they respond.

They always ask where they went wrong. If a woman is confident, she should understand that she's amazing and a man who leaves her is the loser. I'd like an aggressive girl. I need to pursue someone so when I get them, I wont need to lose them. Maybe I can just find that back home, he said.

They're willing breadwinners

A never-do-well Nigerian guy can locate a local lass who may take care of his invoices, but for Nigerian women, that's a no no. A man should provide for you, your family and friends if possible, reasons Chike Adobi. Thats his duty. For a Naija babe to get with a guy, he must be willing to chop cash. she asked, but things aren't the same here for some women who are willing breadwinners.

Kenyan girls marry anyone

Apart from several cases of powerful families, Kenyan girls easily get married to whoever they fantasy and her family just get to understand when she's three kids who are about to register as voters! a

However, when a Naija girl shows interest in a man, her family begins studying his background.

Marriage in Nigeria is a really big deal and thats why women and men dont rush into it. When a girl shows interest in a guy, the household begins snooping merely to learn his background. Thats why Naija girls have become choosy, Nigerian musician Flavor told The Nairobian in an earlier interview to explain why he was still single.

The Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment, Hajia Aisha Abubakar, on Friday in Abuja said that the ministry would soon start a national to encourage Nigerians to patronise made-in Nigieria merchandises.
The effort is labeled, Patronise Naija Products.

Represented by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mr Aminu Bisala, the minister lauded the partnership deal targeted at fostering local manufacturing of leathers and other footwear products.

This venture is very commendable and there isn't any reason why it cannot be supported.

Already, the ministry is furthering the effort for made-in-Nigeria products, for us in Nigeria to use up what we create and create what we consume, and also go beyond that to export.

We've the people, we have the brain, we now have the resources, and so there's nothing stopping us. As a country we are pleased with our commodities, we are happy with our products.

It truly is for the producers to ensure quality. A typical Nigerian wants value for money and that is why perhaps in the past you find them patronising even substandard foreign goods with the thinking they are getting quality.

So, that is a laudable venture, and along with the Patronise naija news 247 Products campaign, which we are going to launch very soon; we will support all similar initiatives not only in shoe production, but in all areas of SMEs (small and medium enterprises).

And I guarantee you that the government is doing all it can to further that cause. That is the nature of this government, we are going to ensure the patronage of made in Nigeria products with all the patriotism of Nigerians that it deserves.

So, I commend you, and the foreign partner, it really is a very welcome development. So, we expect in no distant future, we will not only be supplying the national market but also the West African market and even to South Africa.

Okonkwo listed the economical benefits for the country to include job opportunities for Nigerians and breaking news naija today local manpower development in mechanised shoe production.

He expressed his readiness to partner with curious state governments in establishing shoe factories within their domain names and training their indigenes in the art for economical development.

Chief Executive Officer of Labora, Mr Desmond Chunderlal, said that Nigerians were deprived of affordable locally made quality footwear because of the absence of a structured footwear industry in the country.

Chunderlal, nevertheless, said that with the partnership, the situation would soon be reversed for the overall development of the nations market.

Every cloud has a silver lining, as they say in these climes. The Naira is not likely to recover in the mortal wounds inflicted by the pugilistically Spectacular American dollar, the pound sterling, the Euro and even the Chinese Yuan. Overly many blows for one money that's youthful. Brilliant minister Raji Fashola has more problems on his hands although the rashes on his pubescent kidss buttocks as electricity dipped to zero but may soon be scaling.

In Naija, we do in what could be helped, we innovate t whine. Give! A Considering Nation would have summoned the shop owners install solar panels for the complex or to buy one Big power set, but believing is a tough job that pays little dividends.

Early in the year when Sai Baba Reserved the rare foreign exchange for his foreign junkets, some industrialists whined might shut down, as they wouldn't manage to source for the raw materials at market rate that was black. It was an empty threat - they're enduring by just improvising. Parents, including state governments training pupils abroad have found Apt methods for Fitting school fees without disturbing the Central Bank. Such resilience reminds you of the tagline - cat kill the beetle.
Authorities houses would rather starve workers or run without commissioners than reduce their governors convoy. For their workers, most governors appealed on May Day to be calm and considerate. They even dressed down for several hours and brazed the scorching sun to take solidarity salute. It's one of the sacrifices they make for their selfpreservation. State assemblies have exhibited come-raid understanding.

Effort Venezuela for size if you believe Naija is pledge. Did I Remember that? Well, one beautiful October morning the late Dora Akunyili, in 2010 appealed with Naija refineries to Venezuela for help. The ambassador, Enrique Fernando Arundeli threw diplomatic caution to the winds and took Naija. He gloated about how its oil resources have been Managed by Venezuela by investing in free education, wellness and enhancing social infrastructure. Years after, Hugo Chavez its president died seeking help from Cuban Doctors. It turned out; Arundeli was being Economical with the truth, which is common in diplomacy.
As workers marked May Day while Naijas internal ministry declared one -day public holiday, the Venezuela working week shrunk from five to two days per week. Of course, Nicolas Maduro, Venezuelas new president blames his nations energy catastrophe on drought. Apparently the drought in addition has changed schools, which now run four days per week. It influenced malls now mandated to open for half their ordinary hours and to create their own electricity. Seemingly in Venezuela, vital commodities have already been also changed by the drought as citizens now spend seven hours to purchase milk, soaps and toilet paper - blame the drought, blame America.
For all the Trouble of Naija, here is a candid reason why both Ndoma Udo Udoma and Kemi Adeosun should send a message to their pastors to arrange a thanksgiving service. Raji Fashola should Convey with his Imam to follow suit. The Naija www.naijanews market is not great, but we haven't reduced the amount of Automobiles in the presidents convoy nor do we have strategies to auction airplanes in the air fleet that is presidential.

Some states mightn't have paid their workers wages but not Edo. Recently, Edo procured a $75 million development loan from your World Bank to pilot development, create employment and generate earnings. I 'm Joyful to advise although Edolites Might not comprehend the process by which the magic works that it's returning dividends. The way things are going, Oshiomole can offer Maduro on turning stagnated Marketplaces near some guidance.
Since paying wages is now a monumental accomplishment in Naija, Edo is not alone; some governors have found Apt ways of filling that yearning. While celebrating May Day Collectively, he Arranged for banks to be sure they got the alarm for their May wages. This may be the first indication that Cross Rivers would be paying wages ahead of time. This is another exportable commodity that can advantage Caracas. Next time you see Ambassador Arundeli, tell him - better Naijas real hell than Venezuelas Amazing nirvana! In case He ist been paid his wages, he should swallow his pride and Discuss to Kemi Adeosun!

Forward of the December 1 anticipated demo of the 2017 budget, President Muhammadu Buhari has promised that problems of budget padding would be addressed. Receiving in audience members of the Governance Support Group (GSG), led by Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, at State House, Abuja yesterday, the President also lamented the culture of electoral violence that has once again crept into the country’s political landscape and encouraged a quick alternative to it.

The President’s observation on the budget was in reaction to the controversies generated by the alleged padding of the 2016 budget resulting in the removal and subsequent suspension of the Chairman of the House of Representatives Appropriation Committee, Abdulmuminu Jibrin.

Based on the President, "The distortions that occurred to Budget 2016, where series of amounts and rogue projects were injected into the financial record won’t occur to next year’s budget, President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed. "I 'm waiting for the 2017 Budget to be brought in Council to us.

Any hint of padding everywhere, I'll remove it." Buhari re iterated that he had been in government since 1975, variously as governor, petroleum minister, head of state, and Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF), "and never did breaking news I hear the word ‘padding’ till the 2016 Budget." He assured that such would never happen again under his watch. The President said the government stands by its tripod campaign promises of fighting corruption, restoring the economy, and securing the nation, but lamented that some individuals are blatantly turning blind eyes to prevailing realities in the nation.

They don’t desire to reflect on the problem by which we're, economically. They want to live the same way; they just need business as usual," he said. On violence that attend rerun elections in the country, President Buhari said: "I agonize within the elections in Kogi, Bayelsa and Rivers states.

We should have passed the phase in which people killed because of who inhabits specific offices, and are beheaded. If we can’t guarantee elections that are adequate , then we have no business being around. Edo State election was not bad, and I expect Ondo State election to not be worse." Talking on the anti-corruption cases before the courts, the President said he believed the cleansing now going on "will lead to a better judiciary. Nigerians will consider that we're serious." when individuals are sentenced

They can’t purchase all the grains picked this season, although Buhari equally told his guests the improvement being made in agriculture and exploitation of solid minerals "gives a lot of hope," including: "Our grains go up to Central African Republic, to Burkina Faso. And next season must be even better. We will concentrate on different products like palm oil, cocoa, and palm kernel, in addition to the grains. We can start exporting rice in 18 months, and we're getting pesticides and fertilizers in readiness for next year."
