🔍 "Un tuyau d'approvisionnement en eau potable" ?
Une publication relayée en #France et au #Cameroun tente de créer la confusion autour d'un tuyau dégoutant... mais l'image est ancienne et vient de #Thaïlande ⬇️
La publication a également circulé au #Gabon où la société des eaux a effectué un communiqué pour rassurer la population : gabonreview.com/blog/fake-news… ⬇️
La photo apparaît plusieurs fois en 2016 sur des articles de sites thaïlandais : à l'époque, la Metropolitan Waterworks Authority alertait sur une photo ancienne précisant que le tuyau avait été remplacé avant la publication de l'image : news.ch3thailand.com/index.php/onli… ⬇️

@ChimamandaReal the Nigerian novelist captures this sad tale: The carnage of the #Cameroons:
A story about an African nation’s fatal disregard of its minority population. A story about the muddled sludge of colonial history.

In a week where the North East got yet another military commander, we got a better look at overburdened infrastructure.

Elsewhere, as MTN gears up to enter the banks’ turf, concern over Nigeria's food import practices conjures a picture of a recently painted but creaking house.
The @MTNGroup's announcement is a positive for #Nigeria's economy as it substantiates previous comments by MTN that it has no plans to exit Nigeria despite its spat with @cenbank over alleged illegal fund repatriation.
The announcement ties into @MTNGroup’s strategy to become the biggest provider of mobile financial services in #Africa.

The telecoms-led drive to provide mobile money services will introduce a new interesting chapter in #Nigeria’s financial services sector.

In a week where Nigeria’s government outmanoeuvred trade unions but inevitably booted the ball up the pitch, questions still arose about its budget.

Meanwhile, security dominates the discussions next door, amid concerns that Nigeria may be inadvertently breeding a militia.
On the minimum wage palaver, the key point to note is that @AsoRock has been unable to fund salary payments at the ₦18,000/month level from its revenues, and most states need to be bailed out periodically at that amount.
An analysis by @BusinessDayNg projected that an acceptance of ₦30,000 minimum wage (a 66% rise) by @MBuhari will cost @AsoRock an additional ₦1.25 trillion annually, a move which renders the proposed #budget2019 obsolete, and plunges #Nigeria deeper into the debt conundrum.

Nigeria’s parliament made amendments to electoral law that fail to separate the meat from the bones, a scenario which also applies to our crumbling infrastructure.

Meanwhile, conspiracy theorists are poised to have a field day following a dissident’s curious resurrection.
The statement of intent by @NGRSenate in the proposed #ElectoralAct amendment is clear - #Nigeria must build on the incremental improvements from #elections2015, a key representation of which is the card reader.
It behoves of @inecnigeria to now take a real look at the failure points from #elections2015 in the use of these devices, map potential failure points, and mitigate them.

What must not be done is for @inecnigeria to discard card readers because of previous challenges.
