  • Farouk Martins Aresa: The tragedy of wife abusers
    Farouk Martins Aresa: The tragedy of wife abusers Going by recent cases of wife abuse by “football” players that are lucky enough to break away from the bottom of socioeconomic class in United States, one would think only rich black men abuse their wives. The fact is, it cuts across all classes, race and countries. The Problem: making African Americans the poster boys for all negative images. How soon we forget Deion Saunders with court custody of his children, some like him, that is still abused by ex-wife…

    By Dr. John Egbeazien Oshodi: Why Lt. Gen. Minimah is out of line on domestic violence issues The Nigerian Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Kenneth Minimah, should publicly offer profound apologies to all women and girls in the nation having recently declared a militarized form of domestic threat against military personnel wives. Just a few weeks ago, while addressing soldiers of the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army in Enugu, he thoroughly tread on the rights of women to protest any course dear to them, such as the posting of their husbands into deadly areas of…

  • Naira hits 2-month low, NNPC dollar sale fails to lift
    The naira fell to its lowest level in two months against the U.S. dollar on Wednesday, as the sale of greenbacks by state-owned energy company NNPC failed to meet market expectations. Traders said NNPC sold around $300 million to some lenders, but this was not enough to give support to the local currency. The naira closed at 162.87 to the dollar, compared with Tuesday’s close of 162.80. It was the lowest level seen since July 2, when the local currency closed at 163.10 to the dollar. “A lot of demand targeted at the NNPC dollar sale hit the market, reducing the impact of the fresh dollar flow and weakening the naira further,” one dealer said. Dealers said some lenders took the opportunity of the NNPC sale to cover their short positions, which left the market with little left to meet growing demand from importers and other foreign exchange end-users. The local unit had fallen to a 7-week low on Tuesday, hit by strong dollar demand and a squeeze in availability of the U.S. currency. “Unless we see further dollar flows from offshore investors buying local bonds, and from some oil companies yet to sell dollars in the market, the naira…
