Ethiopia Airlines bids to take over Arik Air



Africa’s most efficient airline has triggered a takeover process of Nigeria’s ailing Arik Air by submitting a formal offer to bring the national shame under its management.

The Airlines’ managing director of international services Esayas WoldeMariam said “We are capable and desirous of handling the airline and we have outlined our terms and conditions to the Nigerian government and we are waiting to see if they agree”

Ethiopia airlines is one of the few feel good stories of Africa for the past few years (though their economy seat hurts my bum), they are making profits and expanding rapidly while our Arik is currently under AMCON management following government bailout in February because they could not pay salaries, service their debt and all sorts of problems you can associate with a Nigerian managed company.

Arik’s debt is close to $1 billion, if the federal government can guarantee that sum, Ethiopia airline can manage it into a profit making entity giving their precedent or we can just let it fail. Nigeria, a country of (conveyer belt workers association) SMH.

Britain Cuts Economic Aid to Nigeria by Half



Britain has reduced economic aid to Nigeria, the cut is exactly 50%, along with the cut is a do better advice on security "step up and do more" (you lazy, incompetent mediocre Africans) [i added that].

Nigeria was given £100 million in aid for 2017 but the British government via Priti Patel, Secretary of state for International Development announced last night that her government has a £200 million four years funding plan, 2018 to 2022.

Ms. Patel and Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson visited northern Nigeria and Ms Patel had a few words for us "My job is isn't just to give aid and money, my job is to make sure that money goes further and that we leverage that with the Nigerian government to make them step up and do more". She followed with how great her country is and how high Britain is on the moral ladder etc. (She basically said nice things about her country)

Britain's funding focus for the past few years has been to ease the impact of insurgency in Northern Nigeria. If Ms. Patel knew how much was used in cutting grass in IDP camps, she will advice her government against giving money to Nigeria.

Almajiri Don't Deserve Formal Education - Adamawa State Government

Adamawa

The Adamawa State Government has said the multi-million Almajiri School. Synonyms of Almajiri includes but is not limited to (Itinerant Islamic students/Weapons of mass vote rigging, looting and destruction, Fulani Herdsmen e.t.c)

The schools established by President Goodluck Jonathan have yet to become operational because they are too expensive to run says Chairman of the Adamawa State Universal Education Board, Mallam Dr. Mohammed Toungo, he made the plans of Nigeria’s Northern ‘elites’ known while appraising the success of the educational initiative of the American University of Nigeria, targeting almajiri children between the ages of six and 17 years.

Corroborating Mallam Toungo’s comment, the Permanent Secretary, Adamawa State Ministry of Education, Alhaji Mahmud Abubakar, said that the state government was finding it difficult to put the almajiri schools into use because of financial constraints because teachers and books are too expensive, moreover the Almajiris are not worth it anyway.

Ironically, Toungo spoke at an event organized by the ‘Technology Enhanced Learning for All’ project to commemorate the World Literacy Day on Wednesday.
