Buhari Launches eNaira

President Muhammad Buhari on Monday, launched the eNaira platform.

The eNaira is a culmination of several years of research work by the Central Bank of Nigeria in advancing the boundaries of payments system in order to make financial transactions easier and seamless for every stratum of society.

The launch was described by CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, as the first in Africa and one of the earliest around the world.

Emefiele said, “Mr President, today you make history, yet again, with the launch of the eNaira – the first in Africa and one of the earliest around the world.

Mr. President, as you make groundbreaking reforms, there has been continuing debate on the true value of the Naira.

“Rather than worry today on the direction of the exchange rate, let us take a step back and analyse how we got here in the first place.”

Akwa Ibom Deep Sea Port To Be Completed Next Year

The Nigeria Shippers Council (NSC) has projected next year for the completion of Ibom Deep Sea Port in Akwa Ibom State.
NSC Executive Secretary  Hassan Bello made this known in Uyo while  speaking on the challenges confronting ports operations.
He estimated that the Ibom and Lekki Deep seaports, Lagos State will generate at least 180,000 jobs for Nigerians when operational.
“There should be intra and inter ports competition. Based on this, we are also glad that two new important ports will operate in 2021. The Lekki Deep Sea Port and the Ibom Deep Sea Port.
“These are very important contributions of government through public private partnerships. Lekki, for example, will create about 180,000 jobs. The same thing with Ibom and I want to congratulate the government of Akwa Ibom and the Federal Government in all these PPPs.
“So, we are looking forward to their coming but the shippers’ council is always alert on what type of ports are we going to have. I say this because there are conventional ports and there are modern ports.”
