Por desgracia todas las iglesias de Occidente, empezando por la católico-romana y siguiendo por todas las iglesias protestantes históricas: luteranos, episcopales, metodistas, reformados... están infiltradas hasta el tuétano por la ideología woke-marxismo cultural. Se han salvado
hasta ahora las iglesias ortodoxas y orientales, y las pentecostales y las mal llamadas evangélicas. Incluso éstas últimas tocadas con temas de inmigación y socialismo. A través de las iglesias ya infiltradas, el marxismo cultural se ha colado
también muy a fondo en el Consejo Mundial de Iglesias @Oikoumene #WCC donde hay un choque entre ideología woke y cristianos tradicionales. Estamos viviendo la mayor crisis de identidad del Cristianismo al menos desde hace 600 años. Si a eso le unimos la inmigración islámica

One of @thenff presidential candidates is asking, on a platform I belong to, “where is the @officialEFCC?”, in frustration with the dollarisation of Friday’s polls. As I told him, he is seeing #football politics in #Nigeria in its pure, raw form.
Two high-level current exco members of @thenff went to Benin, with USD, to ‘encourage’ delegates to vote for them as president. You are expecting me to call out the two people? 🤔😂😝😝😝
From a very reliable source: “It’s so sad. A delegate confided in me that he has USD 30k in his pocket and that with the (other) promises, he estimates that he will be able to get 70k USD.”

"By the end of the 2022/23
crop year, the world's buffer
stocks of corn will be
enough for just 80 days'
worth of consumption"

Crops ruined by widespread drought in the US & Europe, flooding in Pakistan, incessant rains in India & more…
"Tight grain supplies reflect the impact of climate change on crop production as well as growing global demand for livestock that feed on corn, eating away at stockpiles"

& guess what?

The #ClimateCrisis is ramping up as our leaders pour fuel on the fire…
☝️All these warning signs at the same as we know models are likely highly conservative in predicting how #ClimateChange will impact global food production-

Our leaders are clueless or incompetent-

Please do what you can to wake them up!

[Thread] Who is Igor Morozov, the man Putin has put in charge of facilitating Russian companies' access to African markets? How does AFROCOM, the body promoting Russian business interests in Africa that Morozov chairs, operate? Find out more in this week's investigative report🧵
Igor Morozov is known by every African ambassador in Moscow. The discreet senator and ex-FSB colonel has been AFROCOM's head since 2020. In his role, he makes ready use of his contacts in the intelligence services. Meanwhile, he is also making regular trips to Africa 2/9
In February, the Ethiopian authorities welcomed Morozov with open arms. This trip was also used to prepare the visit, 5 months later, of Sergey Lavrov. AFROCOM is at the heart of economic diplomacy in Africa, from #Sudan to #Uganda via #Angola and the #DRC 3/9

1. In his latest statement, #IS spokesman Abu ‘Umar al-Muhajir spoke at length about #IS’s targeting of Christian communities in #Africa.

This continent-wide campaign is likely to intensify across #Mozambique, #DRC, and #Nigeria in the next few months, peaking in December.
2. As part of this, Muhajir spoke about recent developments in #Mozambique.

September has seen #IS’s cells penetrating further south there than ever before, razing "Christian villages" to the ground as they go.

L: #IS-related violence in 2021
R: #IS-related violence in 2022
3. At the beginning of this month, about 20 #IS fighters from #CaboDelgado crossed the #Lurio river and entered #Nampula province.

Up until that point, #Nampula state had seen just one attack claimed by #IS. As of today, that number is at eight and counting.

On #FreshlyPressed981 with @SopeMartins and @monsieurceee this morning, we'll be asking how the NNPC came to the conclusion that petrol will sell for ₦462/litre without the subsidy.

@Smooth981FM in 15 minutes...
The NNPC is just involved in unnecessary fear-mongering.

Our neighbours, who are poorer, pay a lot more than we do for petrol. What I see in all this is people committed to maintaining their cushy subsidy scam going on.
Consider the attached chart, published in February.

As of February, based on the exchange rate, we were paying 40 cents per litre of petrol. In #Benin it was 95 cents, in #Niger it was 97 cents, in #Chad it was 89 cents, and in #Cameroun, it was $1.09. Image

Madam @abikedabiri is briefing now at #StateHouseBriefing, about the work and achievements of @nidcom_gov
We speak of “Japa” as a one-way phenomenon, but we also have Nigerians constantly returning home. @abikedabiri is citing examples of Nigerians returning home, occasionally or permanently, to do interesting things, in Agriculture, Healthcare, etc. #StateHouseBriefing
.@abikedabiri: The hospital where the VP was recently treated was set up by Diaspora doctors. I’m not saying Nigeria’s not a challenging environment, but we must also acknowledge those who are coming back home to do impactful things.

There are many other things though intangibles that can distinguish you from your competitors. ....

Some of these include your parking space, ambience of your office or environment and possibly the cleanliness of your environment.

If you have a restaurant and people find it difficult to park or they have to park on the main road at the risk of being caught by law enforcement agents, then you may be losing clients without knowing.

“We have seen your type before, and they all fizzled out. Let’s see how long you will last.”

That's what someone told @DavidHundeyin as recounted in his @BusinessDayNg column today:

That thing cut my soul because it is true...
For all the flak that the Nigerian media gets, people tend to forget one crucial fact: they are products of their environment, working within that same environment.

Only a very few people in this life have the fortitude of Job.
The overwhelming majority of humanity, including me these days, would make the required compromise to just keep things moving.

One problem we have in #Nigeria is that we never interrogate these things. We must ask, "why"?

NEW: Our mid-year update on 10 conflicts to worry about in 2022 is out now, featuring analysis of the latest ACLED data and a look at key trends to watch in Ethiopia, Yemen, the Sahel, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Sudan, Haiti, Colombia, and Myanmar 🧵…
While fighting has decreased in the Tigray region of #Ethiopia, insurgencies in the Oromia, Benshangul/Gumuz, and Gambella regions have continued. Total fatalities remain high despite the overall drop in events, driven by multiple mass killings.
The UN-mediated truce has resulted in an unprecedented drop in overall reported fatalities in #Yemen, with the second quarter of 2022 registering the lowest number since 2015. Still, violence levels remain high in Marib, Sadah, Hajjah, Hodeidah, and Taizz governorates.

In the 1963 movie, Cleopatra, there was an interesting dialogue between Mark Anthony and Octavian, the man who would later become Augustus Caesar, the first emperor of Rome about the birth of Julius Caesar's son, Caesarion:
Mark Antony: "You were so shut at the mouth just now one would think your words were are precious to you as your gold."

Octavian: "Like my gold, I use them where they are worth most."

This is instructive...
Also instructive is that during his 19 years as chairman of the US Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan did not give any interviews. Having taken over from the inflation-busting Paul Volcker, Greenspan knew that words from his position carried weight and so had to be used sparingly.

CBN ‘Ways and Means’ loan to the FG rise to N20 trillion as of June 2022

The Central Bank of Nigeria has extended a total sum of N19.9 trillion circa (N20 trillion) in loans to the Federal Government under its Ways and Means provision as included in the CBN Act.

Thread 1/9
The Ways and Means provision allows the government to borrow from the Apex Bank if it needs short-term or emergency finance to fund delayed government expected cash receipts of fiscal deficits.

Provisions in the act cap monetary financing of fiscal deficits at 5%...

....of the prior year’s revenues.

However, since the government started experiencing a significant shortfall in revenue,

It has relied heavily on the central bank to finance its expenditure programs via Ways and Means.

According to the central bank’s....

🇩🇿 🇳🇬 🇳🇪 🇪🇺 🇨🇳 | On peut supposer que l’#Algérie demandera à la #Chine et à l’#UE de les aider à financer la construction d’un gazoduc.

Thread explicatif🧵
Le gazoduc transsaharien (TSGP), qui permet de transporter jusqu'à 30 milliards de mètres cubes de gaz par an vers l'Union européenne via le #Nigeria, le #Niger et l'#Algérie, est en cause.

Le prix est d'environ 20 milliards de dollars.

➡️ Les Algériens sont très désireux de voir ce projet se concrétiser.

2. Noch immer ist das plötzliche Auftauchen der Affenpocken in so vielen verschiedenen Ländern der Welt rätselhaft. Wir erleben gerade den bisher größten Ausbruch der Affenpocken in nicht-endemischen Ländern. Endemisch sind die Affenpocken in Ländern in West- und Zentralafrika.
3. Dort sind die Viren unter Tieren (z. B. Nagetiere und Affen) verbreitet und springen immer mal wieder von ihnen auf Menschen über - beispielsweise wenn sogenanntes „Bushmeat” gegessen wird (Jagd, Zubereitung, Verzehr).

I want to add to the praise showered upon @ankaboy for his @BBC documentary on banditry in the NW of #Nigeria. And maybe I can do it by highlighting the takeaways.... a thread.
It is a topic whose coverage is in inverse relation to its importance, because it is a dangerous place to report about... & also because the conversation is filled with all sorts of communal biases and political sensitivities.
Anka does a remarkable job to give a fair, balanced account. To those who are obsessed by the supposed grand battle between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria, he documents how Muslim-on-Muslim violence is massive.
