Domesticate your investment, Shobanjo tasks Nigerians in Diaspora – Daily Trust


Nigerians in the Diaspora have been urged to domesticate their investments to uplift the economy and impact more lives in the country.

The chairman of Troyka Holdings Limited, Mr. Biodun Shobanjo, gave the charge while delivering a speech at the Nigerian-American Business Forum held in Florida, United States recently.


He said while Nigeria currently battles infrastructural gaps, there are huge opportunities for Nigerians in Diaspora to invest in, to promote and accelerate national economic growth as well as improve the standard of living of those living in the country.

The advertising Czar harped on the need to network with people who have experience within and outside the country, adding that they should keep a close watch on current global trends and how they affect businesses in order to run a successful venture at home.

“It is possible to make it in Nigeria. The work we’re doing with Troyka Holdings and its unit companies over the past three decades is a testament to the fact that investing in Nigeria can be a wise decision,” Shobanjo said.

Shobanjo added that every successful business is driven by the quality of people behind it.

Citing Troyka Holdings as a case study, he said as part of his organisation’s drive to find, nurture and retain the best talents, the organization has grown from an 18-man team in 1980 to an over 18,000 direct employees in the country today as the largest Marketing Communications group in Nigeria and across West Africa.

He said the group signed an agreement with the world’s third largest communications group, Publicis Groupe, for the purchase of 25 per cent equity in the business in the year 2015.

Others who spoke at the Forum include the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi; Senators Ben Murray-Bruce and Shaaba Lafiaji; President of the Nigerian Stock Exchange Council, Abimbola Ogunbanjo, and Motivational Speaker, Fela Durotoye.

The Nigerian-American Business Forum is an international networking event for Nigerians in the United States of America designed to chart a way for Nigeria’s development and impact the wealth of experience of accomplished Nigerian in Diasporas for the rapid development of their homeland.

Obasanjo meets Jonathan, wife in Otuoke – The Punch


Simon Utebor

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Saturday, visited former President Goodluck Jonathan in his country home in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area, Bayelsa State.

Obasanjo, in company with Governor Seriake Dickson; his wife, Rachel, and the Senator Representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Ben Murray-Bruce, was received by Jonathan and his wife, Patience.

After exchanging greetings, the two former presidents spent about 30 minutes together. Obasanjo told journalists after the meeting that he had a special dinner with Jonathan.

Obasanjo commended the Otuoke-born politician for the dinner and appreciated Dickson for facilitating the meeting.

The former president described the visit as a meeting of brothers.

A media aide to Jonathan, Mr. Ikechukwu Eze, told our correspondent that Obasanjo was in his principal’s house on a courtesy visit.

Eze said, “Obasanjo came on a private visit to former President Jonathan. After that, he (Obasanjo) had a private dinner with the Jonathans.” Earlier, Obasanjo commended President Muhammadu Buhari for   awarding modular refinery operational licences to 22 firms, including Azikel Petroleum.

He gave the commendation on Saturday while performing the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of Azikel Refinery, the first private modular refinery in the oil and gas-rich Niger Delta region.

The refinery, run by Azikel Petroleum, a subsidiary of Azikel Group of Companies with Dr. Azibapu Eruani, an indigene of Bayelsa, as its Group President, is located at the Obunagha community in Gbarain Kingdom of the Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.

Obasanjo noted that out of the 22 licenced operators, Azikel Petroleum was the only company that had actualised its dream of establishing a modular refinery.

Obasanjo said, “I have been told that President Buhari and his government gave 22 licences and Azikel Petroleum is the only one out of the 22 that has really actualised.

“Before then, we gave 18 and not one was actualised and that is why on an occasion like this, we should pay special tribute to people like Eruani. I join you all in thanking President Buhari for giving four licences more than we gave.”

Zamfara killings: UK, Senate, PDP demand investigation, suspects' prosecution – The Punch


Olusola Fabiyi, Kamarudeen Ogundele, Leke Baiyewu and Adeniyi Olugbemi

The United Kingdom has demanded investigation into the recent massacre of over 40 persons in Zamfara State and prosecution of the suspects involved.

The UK High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr. Paul Arkwright, made the demand via his Twitter handle, @PaulTArkwright, in response to a tweet by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in which he made a similar demand on Friday night.

Saraki had tweeted, “I join all Nigerians in condemning the killing of innocent and defenceless citizens in Birane Village, Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State. Such senseless acts have no place in our society. Our security agencies must do all that it takes to find and prosecute the perpetrators.”

Responding, Arkwright tweeted, “@bukolasaraki, I too condemn this murderous attack in Zamfara State and offer my sympathy to all affected. Violence is never the right way to resolve disputes. This incident should be investigated and the perpetrators brought to justice. @UKinNigeria.

Some members of the Senate have also condemned the killings through their social media platforms, while also blaming the spate of insecurity in parts of the country on laxity by the government.

Senator Shehu Sani specifically condemned governors of northern states for their alleged inaction on the killings in that part of the country.

He said, “Most political elite from northern Nigeria are not loudly speaking against the mass murder going on in northern Nigeria, perpetrated by bandits, armed herdsmen or organised criminal gangs out of fear that they may be tagged or labeled as anti-Federal Government or anti-President.”

Similarly, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce (Bayelsa East), on Friday night, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to learn from President Donald Trump who travelled to the school in Florida where 17 students were shot dead to condole with their friends and families.

Meanwhile, a delegation of the Northern Governors’ Forum on Saturday paid a condolence visit to Zamfara to commiserate with people, especially the Zurmi Emirate Council, over the recent massacre in the area.

The forum’s Chairman, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State, led the delegation, comprising the governors of Sokoto State, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal; Kebbi,  Abubakar Bagudu; and Nassarawa State, Tanko  Almakura.

At the palace of the emir of Zurmi, Shettima said they came on behalf of the people of northern Nigeria to commiserate with Zamfara people over the attack.

He described the attack as unfortunate and worrisome, saying, “It is very disheartening that some criminals decide to kill innocent people.’’

The Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, thanked the governors for the visit and said his administration was making efforts in collaboration with the Federal Government to end the killing of innocent people in the state.

Also on Saturday, the Peoples Democratic Party condemned the gruesome killings.

The party lamented the alleged continued failure of the Federal Government to take decisive steps to end the incessant killings in various parts of the country.

It, therefore, called on all Nigerians, irrespective of religion, ethnicity and political affiliations, to join forces in praying for the nation as well as supporting one another at this critical time in the country.

The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, said it was heartbreaking that Nigerians “are daily slaughtered by marauders while those elected to protect our people are only concerned with their selfish re-election bid in 2019 and meaningless photo opportunities in the media.”

IGP, defence minister visit Zamfara

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Saturday, visited Zurmi town in Zamfara State, where suspected armed bandit killed over 40 residents.

The IGP, who was in the palace of the Emir of Zurmi, Alhaji Attahiru Abubakar, on a condolence visit, promised to strengthen security in the area and bring the perpetrators to book.

He was accompanied by the Commissioners of Police in the Sokoto, Zamfara and Katsina states commands.

The Emir of Zurmi, Alhaji Attahiru Abubakar, expressed his displeasure with the delay in security agencies’ reaction to handling reports passed unto them prior to the attack that left many dead in his domain.

He lamented that the unfortunate massacre could have been avoided if the security outfits in the state had lived up to their responsibilities.

Also, the Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan-Ali, on Saturday, met with Hausa and Fulani communities in Zurmi.

The Public Relations Officer of the defence ministry, Col. Tukur Gusau, who is also the aide to the minister, in an interview with one of our correspondents, said the minister went for an on-the-spot assessment to the community and met with the Emir of Zurmi as well as the Hausa-Fulani community.

Yari vindicates me on $1bn withdrawal, says Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said the claim by the Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, that security agencies failed to respond to the alert given them to prevent the Zamfara massacre, has vindicated him.

Fayose noted that the statement had validated his stance that no extra $1bn was needed to be deducted from the Excess Crude Oil Account to fund the fight against insurgency.

The governor alleged that funds being spent on security were not well used, adding that it was unfortunate that the country continued to witness daily killings.

Fayose, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, wondered why more money should be given to security agencies, if they were not properly utilising the funds earlier given to them.

Dangote, Others Storm Omotola's Birthday Bash – The Tide


Although Nollywood star actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde’s 40th birthday bash has come and gone, it will be talked about for a while because it was not just your ordinary birthday parties, as Nigeria and Africa’s richest man and billionaire business magnate, Alhaji Aliko Dangote turned up at the event dressed in suit, looking very simple as usual.
All eyes were on him as he made his way to his table and every paparazzi present at the event wanted to have a shot of him. Among other crème de la crème at the event are Hon Femi Gbajiamila, Amaju Pinnik, Tony Elumelu and distinguished Senator Ben Murray Bruce of the Silver Bird Group among others.
The event which took place on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at the Land Mark Event Centre, Lekki was kicked off with performances by ace saxophonist, Tola Zee, Yemi Sax, DJ Humility who played Jamz from the 1980s and 90s with DJ Obi who was at hand to keep the younger ones entertained.
The Omotola’s party was a typical Lagos party which had the likes of D’banj, Sir Shina Petes, Sunny Ade. Even though it was her day and the spot light was on her Omotola and her crew came prepared as the venue looked flawless. The colour of the evening which was actually black and read created a different vibe for the venue. The chairs, tables, stage and lightening could be compared to a dinner party for an international award with so much to eat and drink.
Omotola later performed on stage where she gave a rendition of her song from her last album with the help of a live band and she got everyone on their feet as they sang along. Another Nollywood actress, Eucharia Anunobi who lost her son last year also sang with Omotola, it was really sweet and an emotional moment for everyone.
Other events that took place at the well-attended birthday party was Senator Ben Bruce’s entry drama which ensured at the entrance of the venue when the distinguished senator was stopped at the gate by a female security detail who wanted to ensure that the senator entered with his invitee, even though it was not clear if he had his invitee with him.
It took the intervention of some of the organisers to get a visibly calm senator into the venue.
Another event occurred when D’banj entertained the guest with melodious tunes from his last album and even from his first album which got the guests dancing. As usual, D’banj left the stage to interact with guests, while he was entertaining and got to the table of On Air personality (OAP), Daddy Freeze, he praised him, but before he left, he made comments concerning the tithing controversial issue telling Daddy Freeze that he doesn’t care what pastors do with tithes, but he gladly pays his own tithe.
It was indeed a night to remember with the who is who in the entertainment business, politicians, captains of industries etc, were all there.

Urhobo Youth Council backs Osinabjo on state police – Daily Post … – Daily Post Nigeria


The Urhobo Youth Council, UYC, has backed Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s call for the creation of state police in Nigeria.

UYC in a statement by its President, Comrade Festus Otesiri Igherebuo, made available to journalists in Warri, Delta State Wednesday, noted that the menace of violent herdsmen across the country was a valid proof for the establishment of state police.

While re-echoing Senator Ben Murray-Bruce’s statement that the problem with Nigeria is not people but the structure, the UYC leader said: ‘’If we don’t fix our structure, even an angel will have challenges leading Nigeria. If we fail to practise true federalism, a time may come when the Federal Government has nothing to share to states but barrels of oil to look for buyers themselves.

“The advancing security threats by the heartless herdsmen across the country has legitimised our call on the government to implement the demands for the establishment of state police across the country.” “it is imperative to give power to state policing for effectively optimization of community policing, thereby addressing security threats such as herdsmen’s terrorism and other social vices in the various localities will be violently addressed.”

“ Nigeria is due to fashion true central advocacy system of government as reflected in developed countries for better society and advancing economic development.” He added.

'Come home, help build Nigeria', Obi, Murray-Bruce, others task US based Nigerians – Guardian (blog)

Nigerians in the U.S. have been tasked on the need to change their negative mindset about Nigeria and join hands and resources to help build the Nigeria of everybody’s dream.

Former Governor of Anambra Peter Obi, Senators Ben Murray-Bruce and Shaaba Lafiaji, and motivational speaker Fela Durotoye, made the call at the Nigerian-American Business Forum at Florida.

Others who spoke on: ‘Investing in Nigeria from the Diaspora: Challenges and Opportunities’, were the Nigerian Stock Exchange Council President Abimbola Ogunbanjo and Nigerian-American entrepreneur Biodun Shobanjo.

They all challenged the diasporas to invest at home and help to build a better Nigeria of everybody’s dream.

Obi said: “You must invest in Nigeria; we must change the mindset about Nigeria. You must bring your investment home because we need to take back Nigeria.

“There is an opportunity in Nigeria when it comes to investment that is not anywhere in the world. Channel your investment back into the country; be part of the change at home. We have no other country to call ours except Nigeria.”

Murray-Bruce, in his speech, said the diasporas could not sit idly by and watch the country run aground, adding “you must be willing to come home, invest and fight for Nigeria to be better.

“In the coming election, Nigeria must be better – no more business as usual. Nigerians in Diaspora constitute the largest foreign direct investment to Nigeria – 22 billion dollars – while NNPC contribute 30 billion dollars.

“So I am sponsoring a bill that you must be given the right to vote. Call your senators to support my bill. If Nigeria must be successful, you must be successful”.

Durotoye, on his part, said it was not too late for Nigeria to get it right, saying Nigeria could still be the most desirable country to live in the next seven years – 2025.

He challenged the diasporas to be like the Diaspora Jews and Indians who succeeded together and were able to go back to impact same on their respective countries.

Leadership coach and motivational speaker Fela Durotoye speaking at the Nigerian-American Investment Forum at Florida

“No nation in the world has been able to realise its potential without the involvement of its diasporas; Awolowo, Nkrumah, Kenyatta – were all diasporas. Don’t be escapist. As long as you want to escape, Nigeria is a ‘hole’ to you.

“Be an expertise, think of what to bring back home. Invest in each other, start investing in Nigerians who are here.

“So invest in young Nigerians at home; they are moving forward in spite of government. Search them out and mentor them.

“Nigeria was born with a wing but just put in a cage in the past 57 years but the cage is about to be broken,” Durotoye said.

Also speaking, Ogunbanjo said the Nigerian Stock Exchange was the best-ranked stock globally in 2017 according to Bloomberg adding, Nigerian economy is on the verge of outperforming the 2017.

Lafiaji, in his speech, highlighted the investment opportunities in Kwara and Nigeria and challenged the diasporas to stop lamenting over the country but proffer workable solutions to its challenges.

Speaking in a similar vein, Shobanjo said there was absolutely no reason why the diasporas should not come and invest at home, saying the opportunities in Nigeria are vast.

“I’m imploring you, please come home and invest. The more people like you come and invest, the GDP – Gross Domestic Product – will grow and we will make Nigeria a better place,” Shobanjo said.
