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.

Nigeria - kraj siedzący na ropie, w 2020 r. Wydawał 97% swojego przychodu na serwisowanie długu. W połowie 2021 r. Była ona w czołówce krajów z największą ekspozycją na dług. Przed nią były Indie, Pakistan, Bangladesz i Wietnam, za nią liczne kraje afrykańskie.
Nigeria nie jest beneficjentem wysokich cen ropy (przedział 100-120 USD). Np. Arabia Saudyjska aktualnie nie ma deficytu budżetowego po raz pierwszy od wielu lat. Rosja korzysta nawet po uwzględnieniu dyskonta cenowego - założenia wpływów budżetowych jakie miała w 2021 dają
Możliwość znaczneeeeeeeeeego zejścia z ceny.
Nigeria natomiast robi 61% mniej niż założone cele. 1.376 mbpd w większości H1 2022 spadło do 1.238 mbpd w 06/22. Przyczyną jest totalny i absolutny odpływ zachodnich gigantów ropnych z Nigerii, brak własnego R&D oraz braki kadry.

More and more govts - #Nigeria #Brazil #Colombia #Australia #NZ - are approving a drought-resistant #GMwheat called #HB4. Produced by Argentine corporation #Bioceres, it will be used for food & animal feed. Given today’s food & climate crises, urgent action is needed. 🧵 1/8 Image
#HB4wheat, together with #GoldenRice and #newGMOs, is part of an industry push to weaken and dodge biosafety rules, while increasing corporate control over #seeds. Here’s how this is playing out in Asia: 2/8
Wheat and rice are not yet fully colonised by the #seedindustry, because farmers can save and replant those seeds. They are also key staple foods in many global South countries, at the centre of today’s rising #food prices. 3/8

My #FGM Heartbreak💔
"I Wanted To Kill Myself!"
Cecilia Ogore Recalls Hers:
"I was in my teen years when FGM was done to me; two women held my hands, one sat on my chest while the cutter squatted between my legs to circumcise me.
I felt a very sharp pain in my genitals; I cried ImageImage
and bled a lot. I was confined to a room to recover because I wasn't #circumcised in the festive period.
You are expected to go out during festive periods and show that you are cut - that you are #mature!
As time progressed, I noticed that without knowledge, certain parts of my
clothing always became wet with stench of urine!
I will sometimes come down from a bus to discover that some areas on my skirt were stained and smelt of urine!
On close examination by a hospital in Uyo, #Nigeria, I was told I had VVF!

@DrTedros "#COVID19, driven by BA.4 and BA.5 in many places, cases are on the rise in 110 countries, causing overall global cases to increase by 20% and deaths have risen in 3 of the 6 WHO regions even as the global figure remains relatively stable"-@DrTedros
@DrTedros "This pandemic is changing but it’s not over. Our ability to track the #COVID19 virus is under threat as reporting and genomic sequences are declining meaning it is becoming harder to track Omicron and analyse future emerging variants"-@DrTedros

As part of activities to commemorate our 3 years of operations at Ibom Air, we've gifted large umbrellas to street vendors in Uyo, Abuja, Bayelsa, Enugu & Port Harcourt so far.

Most recently, we hit the streets of Calabar & received a warm welcome from some very happy vendors
Thank you Calabar for having us! 🧡

Monkeypox virus clearly is endemic in #Nigeria.
Cases occur sporadically throughout the year and across the country except to the far northeast.

#Monkeypox cases continue to occur in Nigeria this year (2022): 110 suspected and 31 confirmed cases
The above report does not indicate which of the 2 clades of #MonkeypoxVirus are responsible for the cases.

The reported case fatality rate of 3.6% is higher than the usual 1% for the West African clade but lower than the up to 10% for the Central African clade.

The report does not indicate if the reported cases are due to person-to-person transmission or to contact with infected wild mammals.

#monkeys are not the reservoirs of the virus, despite the name that the virus has received.

This tweet, and the reply, are both hilarious and sad at the same time. I normally don't engage such nonsense, but herein lies a teachable moment, so let's go.

First, in a thread of 5 tweets, it's the single one that pointed out the flaw in the strategy of the victims you saw.
It says a lot about your ability to assess multiple streams of information at the same time, and as important, it speaks to your emotional state.

Basically, you're looking for affirmation, so anything that runs contrary to what you'd like to hear, can only be from an "enemy".
Which is fair at an individual level, but when an entire group begins to act in this manner and expects the results to be favourable, one can only wonder...

This map is from a presentation made after #NigeriaDecides2019. Note where state actors engaged in violence. Opposition strongholds.

Today's nonsense in Alaba is same just earlier in the process. Voter suppression. You can download the full report here:
Present at that report were people from @inecnigeria @HQNigerianArmy @PoliceNG @official_NSCDC and a host of other actors in the election and security matrix.

The report was adopted, and INEC promised to do better.
Having pointed out all of this, we must come to terms with the flaws in our system and figure out ways around them.

@inecnigeria has started CVR. There's really no reason why we should be doing voter reg and creating choke points politicians can exploit.

This chart shows that you are actually more likely to be lynched in Southern #Nigeria.

It should be food for thought for Southern Nigerians.

It should be food for thought for someone like me, who is a parent.
Imagine sitting in your house, and your child goes out, then you hear that he has been killed because of ₦100 ($0.17)?

That is what happened to #DavidImoh's parents.
Sadly, too low-income Nigerians have been socialised to see mob justice as normal.

When you add that most of us have no trust in the legal system in any event, we will see more lynchings in future.
