Petrol Crisis May Worsen As Depot Price Hits N165 Per Litre

Image

According to ThisDay investigation, this is coming as two petrol vessels imported by the NNPC discharged simultaneously in Lagos at the weekend. Petrol scarcity, which had marred the Christmas and New Year celebrations, has persisted despite the efforts of the NNPC to successfully perform the onerous task of meeting the country’s fuel need, following the refusal of the private marketers to import on account of unsustainability of the official pricing regime. A market survey conducted by ThisDay showed that only seven out of over 30 depots had stock of petrol at the weekend. The depots include Folawiyo, Fatgbems, Aiteo, Bovas, Heyden, Rainoil/First Royal and NIPCO. However, the major marketers had stock of NNPC’s …

Obi Nwakanma Reacts To Trump’s Derogatory Remark About Africa

Image
US based Nigerian Lecturer Obi Nwakanma, has reacted to Trump’s statement about Africa being a shithole. In a lengthy article by the creative writing lecturer, he described migration as an inevitable aspect of humanity. Read below;
Human migration is an inexorable part of human history. Human beings move, settle, and resettle, according to certain compelling forces, including the search for security, for new economic opportunities; for food and well-being, and in some very unique cases unwillingly, and therefore by force. In the making of America, the Africans were the only people who were force-marched to what became the “new world” by force. Millions were kidnapped to work as slaves to work as free labourers, in the pre-industrial, pre-machine-age plantation slave economy; some were sold after capture in war; many fought and resisted coming to America with the last breath in their body, preferring to die in the slave ships, rather than go to America. The late historian, Professor O…
