About 75 polling units and voting points were affected and some 36,392 registered voters may have been disenfranchised as a result. #CDDAnalysisCentre #NigeriaDecides2019 @HassanIdayat @DrJoeAbah @thecableng @PremiumTimesng
This is extremely disturbing and we call on all the relevant security agencies to ensure that appropriate steps are taken to prevent further incidents of violence likely to disrupt voting and consequently negatively impact the outcome of the elections. #CDDAnalysisCentre

I took this picture from the balcony of a serviced apartment in #Lagos.
While air from the outdoor unit of the AC warms my legs, I notice they have no lights (tnx #NEPA).

It's a microcosm of what Lagos is.
A place where abject poverty lives right next to extreme opulence. 1/?
From the island which sits right next to the mainland, to the pockets of estates living amidst an ocean of shacks and slums.

It's a bit sickening.

I remember seeing a pearly white mansion which opened to a roundabout on the Island. Mesmerizing. 2/?
There's things I've seen on the Island that I could never have imagined.

Lines of yachts moored along the edges. Traffic jams where Range Rovers were the Corollas.

Drinks that go for thousands of dollars per bottle. Clubs that serve these drinks. 3/?

1/ The country’s profile got bleaker this week for a host of reasons - impetuous regulatory behaviour, refugees left out in the cold, a needless rise in public recurrent spending and an unshackled rogue police squad.
2/ Nothing illustrates #Nigeria’s dysfunction as much as the minimum wage palaver. The ₦27,000 ($75) or even ₦30,000 ($83) is not much – those that earn it will hover around the poverty line.
3/ The issue is that even such a wage is beyond the capacity of @AsoRock to pay, and for many small businesses as well, this will represent a massive upswing in cost. There is a disconnect between value creation by the workforce, and how much they earn.

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.

President Obasanjo once called maintaining Nigeria Airways (NAL) irresponsible. Six years later, one of his successors, despite a petition from former NAL employees appealing for ₦45 billion in severance pay, is shopping the world for an investor for a proposed national carrier.
Between a ferocious fight over revenue sharing, and ignoring the obvious on Boko Haram, bad ideas seem to die slowly, such that it has almost obscured the recognition Nigeria’s music industry got from the world’s largest music label.
The latest #BokoHaram attacks don't suggest a resurgence of the group so much as they demonstrate its resilience, capacity for strategic hibernation and stealth.

They also indicate that the financing with which it procures weapons and its recruitment remain largely uninhibited.
