Twitter ban in Nigeria to end 'very soon'
"If the operation has been suspended for about 100 days now, I can tell you that we're just actually talking about a few, just a few more days now," Lai Mohammed said
Let’s admit it. It’ll take a while to bring calm to the fx-naira war. Either the CBN finds a way to drive the rate to $1 = N10 (let’s not be too greedy) or the economy improves where rates of import-export ratio are quite negligible, in favour of Nigeria. Maybe not equilibrium.
Curating today in tech I caught some exciting phrases…could be as a result of many things combined.
Hope you find them exciting too.
Words on Marble.
+ Are we saying that the Ghanaian economy, the Sierra Leonean economy, the Nigerian economy is doing better than the Nigerian economy? The Niger currency is doing better in the international market than the naira is in the last six months.
+ People, if you have a really huge customer base in Africa, expect big knocks at the door; China tech will like to come in to ensure that New York is not rattled as it loses steam in the home nation.
+ Despite these negative global forecasts, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, which also bears Nigeria’s fuel subsidy burden, managed to record profit.
Have a good evening.
