A report on the booming second-hand phone market and how to protect yourself.

While many phones change hands via sites such as Gumtree, Jumia successfully, Most people purchase smartphones from an individual and are not afforded the same consumer rights as those who bought one from a business. This is called a consumer-to-consumer transaction and you do not have the same refund, repair or replace rights as you would when buying from a business. While there are many gains of buying second-hand products with regards to price and durability, there are also pains associated with buying same products including, but not limited to the possibility of purchasing a stolen product. There are ways people buying a used device could minimise the risks of ending up with a stolen product, including buying from a reputable dealer. Check the ESN (electronic serial number) to view th...Read More

Beware of Latest Scams via Computer and Phones

A complicated report in  which a fake customer representative from one of the telecomms company in the company made the rounds. The victim lost certain amounts of money to the scammer in the process. Many scam tactics have evolved over the years and have been very consistent in the use technology to scam their victims. We are seeing that scammers are getting very creative and inventive in using technology to their advantage. It is my belief that people should be skeptical when asked for payment over the phone. “Any time that you’re asked to give payment to someone else, question it, especially if you did not initiate the conversation.” People who suspect they’re being targeted can look online for a legitimate number for the organization, or check Google for similar interactions that others...Read More

An Article on James Ibori

LEADERSHIP: IBORI QUESTIONS READINESS OF NIGERIAN YOUTHS Former Delta state governor, James Ibori, has asked if the youths are truly ready to assume political positions. In an article he wrote recently, the former governor argued that it is not enough to demand for a generational shift in the political class. According to him, what is more important is to ascertain if the Nigerian youths have something to offer when they come into office. According to the former governor, unlike the Nigerian youth, some of the world’s leaders including France President Emmanuel Macron who was 39 years old when he was elected President and former US president Barack Obama, had something to offer before coming on board. “The election of a Macron in France may have galvanized a section of Nigerians to think t...Read More

Beyond the ‘Youth Take over Power Slogan”: Setting Agenda for African Young Minds

By James Alabi In the Yoruba proverbial parlance, a popular word of wisdom says “If you listen to the noise of the market, you will not buy anything” which literally means that “One should face what is paramount to one first before any other thing.” There has been quite unwholesome proverbial market noise about the role of the youth in governance system in Africa. While this argument persists and spreads very quickly like wild fire, there has been no argument in the direction of setting clear agenda in terms of what the youth essentially need to drive governance in a democracy. Sadly, the focus of the narrative hitherto has been that the old men must dismount the horse and their characters quit or be made to quit the scene and allow a new generation of young minds take over the stage. Whil...Read More

How to work with Nigerian developers and not miss deadlines

I’ll talk from the programmer’s perspective. 1. SPEAKING OUT: Many programmers are employed, its too risky to voice out. So you’ll almost never see it around that a programmer comes to call out a client for wrong behaviour. But project owners now find it a hobby to come to the social media to publicly shame Nigerian developers. This has bad effects, people from other countries are buying it, Nigerian developers are scammers. 2. INTERNAL BEEF: Developers all around the world miss deadlines but people voice out only when its Nigerian developer because its uncool to admit that Indian or Pakistani developers failed after coming out publicly to shame Nigerian developers. 3. DEADLINES: There are many reasons project deadlines are missed, some are the faults of the developers some aren’t. But one...Read More

Admission of Morocco into ECOWAS is an anti-Nigeria move

Since I left the office of the Minister of External (Foreign) Affairs in December 1987, I have refrained from making direct comments or I can count on the fingers of one hand, the number of times I have made comments on issues which are of direct concern to Nigerian foreign policy. I did this because I believed and still believe that having had my own opportunity at batting, the present ministers at the crease should be allowed unfettered room during their innings. However, this issue of the admission of Morocco (and possibly Tunisia) into the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), an organisation midwifed by Nigeria and Togo, an organisation on which Nigerian regional security construct has been based for the past 40 years, an organisation on which Nigeria’s claim to be a reg...Read More

Arms purchase not the magic in the war against Boko Haram

A retired officer who does not want his name mentioned said purchasing arms should not be an exclusive priority. “I can tell you that most of the arms currently being used by Boko Haram in the northeast belonged to our troops. The terrorists stole them after attacks on army formations and ambushes. “We must, therefore, put a strategy on the ground to stem this tide by renewing our approach to guerrilla warfare and arms handling,” the retired military chief said. “And I am really not convinced that we are prioritising our actions. It is not just about arms procurement but intelligence gathering,” he said. According to the officer, going by the recent deadly attacks in places like Mubi, Biu and other locations in Borno and Adamawa states, something is fundamentally wrong. Another security ex...Read More

Boko Haram still with us – Experts 

Some retired military officers also said yesterday the governors’ approval for $1 billion for arms is government admittance that the terror group is still powerful. Salihu Bakari, a retired army officer, said it was good that the civilian authorities admitted that the Boko Haram is still a national threat. “I may sound naïve but this singular approval is an admittance of the obvious by our political leaders, that the Boko Haram is still deadly,” he said. He said it was good news that the governors were probably briefed by Nigeria’s security chiefs on the security architecture of the country and therefore resolved to do the needful. “I am sure that they were briefed and that was why they agreed that such huge money should be used. Constant procurement of arms by serious countries is a legit...Read More

Govs approve $1bn for Boko Haram war – Daily Trust

In Nigeria The Nigerian Governors Forum yesterday approved $1 billion (N362 billion) from the Excess Crude Account to fight Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast. This is coming at a time the Nigerian authorities and military hierarchy severally declared that the anti-insurgency war has ended and the Boko Haram terror group defeated. There was no official statement on what the $1 billion would be used for last night. Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki said they approved the fund to “support the effort” of the federal government in the anti-terror campaign. However, multiple military and defence sources told Daily Trust last night that the money would be used in purchasing military hardware that includes anti-mine tanks and fighter jets. The money was approved by the governors during a meet...Read More
