    By Alkali: PINE not just a grass cutter The recent indictment of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, David Babachir, over alleged corruption underestimated the value of work done by the Presidential Initiative on the North East (PINE) argues Mohammed Alkali.

    BUY656:   Naira stabilises at N497 to dollar SPONSORED BY BUY656.COM: The Naira on Monday stabilised at N497 to a dollar at the open market just as stakeholders expressed hope in its imminent recovery, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports. The Nigerian currency, however, strengthened against the Pounds Sterling, but weakened against the Euro at the open or parallel market as it closed at N595 and N517, respectively; from N597 and N515 posted on Friday. At the Bureau De Change (BDC) window, the Naira traded at N399 to a dollar, a rate it would maintain for the rest of the week, while the Pound Sterling and the Euro traded at N604 and N522 respectively. Trading at the interbank market saw the Naira weakened further at N305.25 to a dollar, from N305 posted on Friday.
