NIGERIA AND THE POSSIBILITY OF DOUBLE-DIGIT GROWTH – HOW FEASIBLE?
I have come again; the economist who insists that the Nigerian GDP must grow at double digits for us to make real progress. Today, I am a tad happy because one of the candidates in Nigeria’s upcoming 22023 presidential elections – Asiwaju Bola Tinubu – has listed as one of his targets, 12% annual GDP...

MTN’S N22 BILLION LOSS – MUST EVERYBODY IN NIGERIA BECOME A BANKER?
Indians are not very famous for physical work. My friend Syed, from Kolkata, pokes fun at himself for that. South African comedian throws a good joke about how the British made a huge mistake bringing Indians to the mines of Kwa Zulu Natal to do hard work. The Indians would rather keep the accounts. Russel...

HOW WE MISUNDERSTOOD EDUCATION AND RUINED NIGERIA
It has become imperative for me to chip in a word on the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike which has kept many Nigerian youths at home since February 2022. The strike has become intractable and it looks like all bets are off – again. President Buhari has given a few deadlines and...

ENOUGH OF WILD GUESSES – CLEANING BLACK MONEY IN NIGERIA AS AN URGENT NATIONAL IMPERATIVE
I was going to really join issues with one of Nigeria’s top economists and member of the president’s economic advisory committee – Mr. Bismarck Rewane. But I will now tone things down a little because he’s been out calling for those who have taken his presentations out of context to correct themselves. But I doubt...

PLATO’S NIGHTMARE – BETWEEN MY DISENCHANTMENT WITH BUHARI AND A HOPEFUL REDEMPTION FROM TINUBU
Democracy, which is a charming form of government, full of variety and disorder, and dispensing a sort of equality to equals and unequals alike. Plato Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right … and a desire to know – Plato Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and...

A GAME NOBODY WINS – CRACKING DOWN ON MASS DOLLAR SPECULATION IN NIGERIA – 2
The real issues are:   LOW ECONOMIC COMPLEXITY Yes indeed, we are not productive and occupy the 4th lowest position on the Economic Complexity Index – meaning that as sophisticated as our tastes are, we also are one of the countries that adds the least value to anything we produce. This means that we are...

YOU UNDERESTIMATE ‘PARTY STRUCTURE’ AT YOUR OWN PERIL
If you are big on social media, you could already call the 2023 presidential elections for Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party. Indeed, he is making some impact, whether we agree with his politics or not. Many young and vocal people I know, and many who would not want to have anything to do...

NIGERIA’S COMING ECONOMIC MELTDOWN
God knows I tried. For years I wrote and laboured, even got into politics to see how I could directly help, since joining the big 2 was an impossible or untenable option. I put out all my ideas on our economic situation, from how I believe we could attain growth, to how to manage inflation,...
A SECOND TAKE ON THE ECONOMICS OF 2023 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

A SECOND TAKE ON THE ECONOMICS OF 2023 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES
With Osun elections in the bag, the 2023 elections are getting clearer and so, it is trite to bring back to the front burner the critical economic issues that should drive the elections. Indeed, our people are our people and one cannot expect many to understand the highfalutin economic terminologies that may emanate from the...
