1. When the CBN announced the restriction on forex for the importation of milk, many of us came on twitter to complain as usual. Some said it was another ploy to enrich the Fulani & give them land. I supported the policy because I knew a new set of

3. I always use India in my examples considering their similarities to Nigeria. Mother Dairy India & Amul milk India all started out small until the ban on importation of milk in 2008. What these companies both did was head down to the interiors of Gujurat, Bengaluru to

Role Of State Governors/Government In Nigeria

1. Many Nigerians aren't aware that some state governors are yet to inaugurate their cabinets. Some of those who were up in arms that PMB had not appointed ministers have gone silent now their state governors haven't
2. appointed commissioners. Many Nigerians aren't aware that most things they complain about aren't under the purview of the FGN while some are both responsibilities of state & federal government.

1. Killings have been going on all over Nigeria for a while. Killings in some parts of of the South East got so bad that mischievous folks on social media started blaming 'herdsmen'. A guy did a post about how he was traveling on our highways somewhere in the east when masked

1. Benin republic has a population of 11.80 million meanwhile Lagos population is over 20m. In 2018 Benin was world No. 6 in rice imports valued at $930.5 million (3.8%). Nigeria wasn't at top 15 yet we have foreign rice all over the place. Go to Zone-al-Madina, Sekanji, Akpakpa
2. & see millions of cars, average Beninese use bikes more than they use cars so where do all those cars end up? Nigeria! Benin is the highest importer of used cloths, go to Missebo market & you will immediately know where all those cloths will end up; Lagos, Aba, Onitsha etc.
3. Coconut, banana, pineapple are all landing in Nigeria through idi-roko, seme etc. If we do not do something drastic about Benin republic, all our talk about local production is just talk! Note: over 80% of rice imported into Benin lands in Nigeria! close to 90% of cars lined
