Who Said It Can't Be Made In Nigeria- Check This Out!


This guy made a hoverboard in Nigeria and it seems to be working. Nice one! #BuyNigerianProducts.

Read what Nigerians are saying about #HowtoFixNigeria on Twitter.

House of Reps explain why they haven't forwarded details of the 2016 budget to Buhari

The House of Representatives has issued a statement explaining why they have not forwarded the details of the 2016 budget to President Buhari, an action that has prevented Buhari to sign the budget into law.The chairman House Committee on Appropriations, Abdulmumin Jibrin‎, in the statement released today, said the practice of witholding the budget for a few days or weeks by the National Assembly has always been there and that due to the fact that the "padded" budget was presented to them late, they need time to scrutinize the details. The statement in part reads:

“The general public should note that the MTEF and 2016 budget proposal came to NASS very late. You will also recall that a lot of dust was raised over different versions of the budget circulated in the national assembly. Further, some ministers disowned the content of the budget during defence before NASS.

In Kogi: Police seal Assembly complex following crisis.

But contrary to the governor’s claim, the main entrance to the assembly complex was barricaded, by heavily armed policemen, preventing factional members billed to conduct ministerial budget screening from accessing the complex.

Fresh uncertainty over 2016 Budget.


Another cloud of uncertainty is hanging over the 2016 Budget estimates approved by the National Assembly last Thursday as the Appropriation Bill may not be signed into law for full implementation any time soon. 

Instead, there may ensue a showdown between the Presidency and the National Assembly on the budget. Investigations by Vanguard had revealed that the lawmakers may have played a fast one on the Presidency by transmitting only the highlights of the budget and kept the details in their custody. Release of the budget highlights without details makes it difficult for President Muhammadu Buhari to know what adjustments were made by the lawmakers. 

APC invades Ekiti with policemen from Abuja to arrest 11 lawmakers.

GENCOs, DISCOs appeal to Nigerians to be patient, as power generation drops further.

Millions of Nigerians had their Easter celebrations in darkness as power generation yesterday dropped further to 2,620 megawatts. 

Meanwhile, generation and distribution companies in the country have asked for more time and patience from Nigerians to improve electricity supply. 

Their plea came as they identified weak transmission network as a major hindrance in the attainment of the 10,000 megawatts target set by President Muhammadu Buhari to be achieved in 2019. The Executive Director, Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors, ANED, Mr. Sunday Oduntan, believes the President’s target is achievable, even though it was targeted at the twilight of this administration.

Ifreke Inyang list 5 lessons from Nigeria vs Egypt match


1. It is not a Good Friday for the Eagles
This is one painful result for Samson Siasia and his boys. They were three minutes away from grabbing a famous 1-0 win against Egypt, only to concede a late, late goal.

2. Nigeria still stand a chance
It was not a totally disastrous performance by the Eagles. The Egyptians heavily relied on Mohamed Salah’s pace and invention on the break, which didn’t yield much throughout the game. Mohamed Elneny was silent, as John Mikel Obi put in an exemplary performance on his first outing as captain. If Siasia tweaks the team a bit, they might cause an upset in Alexandria on Tuesday.
