At a time of serious peril in NE #Nigeria, @HQNigerianArmy has suspended @unicef's from the region, accusing it of “engaging in training selected persons for clandestine activities”, effectively of terrorism…
Just to be sure there is no mis-translation, Operation #LafiyaDole Command claims @UNICEF_Nigeria is “sabotaging the counter-terrorism efforts” through “spurious & unconfirmed allegations bordering on alleged violations of #humanrights by the military.”…
The claim by @HQNigerianArmy against @UNICEF_Nigeria is pretty serious. To begin with, UNICEF isn't an NGO; it's an int'l org. Nigeria actually supports its work. If these allegations are real, they shd have bn reported to HQ before now. Were they? If so, wht did they do or say?

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.

Few days ago, news broke of a deadly BokoHaram attack on the town of Gudumbali in Borno. Like many others, I was heartbroken. I'd been to Gudumbali during the residents homecoming few months earlier, and felt that ray of hope was fading...
The news from Gudumbali was worrisome, conflicting. So when I got a chance to join in a trip to Gudumbali again, I embraced it eagerly. What did we see?
*The town isnt taken over by BH. We were welcomed by hundreds of excited residents.Most of them never left during the attack
**None of the residents was killed. None at all. It was such a relief to hear that. There were attacks on troops location though. Casualty/Fatality? Minor to none. Details are complicated in this case!! But soldiers are well deployed in and around Gudumbali.
