The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele, has said the federal government is “talking with China” in order to be “importing some of its own items from Nigeria.”
According to Emefiele, this will help reduce the gulf in trading between the two countries. Speaking at a press conference at the World Bank headquarters in Washington DC, on the last day of the 2016 World Bank/IMF spring meeting, he also said part of Nigeria’s deal with China is that Nigeria would become the Asian country’s trading hub in West Africa.
“China has appointed South Africa as its trading hub for Remnibi transactions in the Southern African region, has appointed Kenya as its trading hub for East and Central Africa. “And Nigeria, the mandate that we signed is for us to be appointed as the trading hub in the West African sub region.
In all, we expect that it is going to be mutually beneficial. “We are talking to China so that it would also be importing some of its own items from Nigeria, so that the trading balance can be sort of reduced. “Will Nigeria benefit from this? I want to say categorically that Nigeria will from this. It’s less pressure on the dollar and consequently on our reserves, he said.”
Emefiele, according to The Cable, added that the CBN could not continue with indeterminate adjustment (devaluation) of the currency, without taking necessary structural reforms. “For the first time, we are taking structural reforms seriously in the country. We’ve always talked about, oh, when you do an adjustment, follow it up with structural reforms.
“But we are saying this time, we’ve done an adjustment and we are following it up with structural reform, to diversify the economy from depending on oil. “I’ve said it that we have seen people who are coming in to invest.
During the china trip, we saw people who said they can now come in instead of exporting those items into Nigeria, they can now bring those plants into Nigeria and begin to produce those things in Nigeria because our climate is good.
“I repeat, what is the raw material for fertilizer? It is gas. We have it in large quantity; when you bring in the plant, you don’t need to import any raw material again. We are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel; we just want people to show understanding,” the CBN governor said.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Tuesday, honoured the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, with a special title of “Anti-Corruption Ambassador” based on his support for the fight against graft.
The National Assembly Liason Officer, of the EFCC, Mr. Suleiman Bakari, according to a statement by the Special Adviser to the Deputy Senate President, Uche Anichukwu, stated this when he led a team of the anti-graft agency on a courtesy visit to Ekweremadu. Bakari said, “As an Anti-Corruption Ambassador, It is therefore Your Excellency, to on behalf of my Acting chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Mustafa Magu and the entire management and staff of the EFCC, decorate you as an Anti-Corruption Ambassador and formally present this frame, as a token of our appreciation to your person and office, and as a symbol of institutional partnership between the EFCC and the National Assembly.”
Bakari, appealed to the National Assembly to ensure adequate funding for the agency and advocated speedy passage of all the anti-corruption Bills before it. Ekweremadu called for the establishment of Special Anti-Corruption Courts to reduce the burden on regular courts and fast-track trial of corruption cases.
He explained that setting up Special Courts, was one of the surest ways to help the fight against corruption, as it would ensure speedy adjudication of corruption cases. He said, “I have been an advocate of special courts for the trial of corruption cases and I believe that other countries, who have enacted laws establishing such, are not fools because there are benefits to be derived therefrom. “The idea is to expedite trial to make sure that those who are involved in corruption matters will have their day in court. “When we have special courts, just as we have the National Industrial Court, such courts will do better than they are doing now.
The establishment of special courts is not just something that will be done by an Act of the National Assembly. “We have to amend the constitution to bring it about under section 6, for the purpose of trying corruption cases.” Ekweremadu advocated value reorientation of Nigerians at all levels, with a view to returning to the good old days, and also cautioned the EFCC to ensure that in fighting corruption, it must respect the rule of law and ensure that the provisions of the constitution regarding fair hearing and treatment of an accused are also respected.
He commended the EFCC for decorating him as an Anti-Corruption Ambassador, and assured them that he would live up to the trust reposed in him. He further said that the National Assembly would do everything within its powers to ensure that the Bills before it, aimed at strengthening the fight against corruption, got speedy attention.

"Close sources to Nollywood movie director Afeez Owo and his wife Mide Martins have revealed what actually led to their breakup. One of the sources said shortly before her husband moved out of their matrimonial home, Mide traveled to South Africa with one of her friend’s husband, a real estate mogul that was once mentioned on this site.
The source said Mide Martins allegedly slept her way to an endorsement deal that later materialized upon her return to Nigeria.

The Federal Ministry of Education has announced that in order to reduce the workload of primary and junior secondary pupils, they will be cutting down subjects from 20 to a maximum of ten subjects under the nine-year basic educational curriculum in order to align with International standards.
To achieve this, the ministry of Education will be partnering with the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC). However, subjects like Christian Religious Studies (CRS) and Islamic Religious Studies (IRS), which are separately taught, will now be merged under a compulsory subject known as Religion and National Values (RNV).
Other subjects brought under the RNV include Civic Education, Social Studies, and Security Education. A few Nigerians have reacted to the announcement and here is what they have to say(see reactions below ) What do you think?
UMUAHIA— GOVERNOR Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has borrowed a total of N24 billion since he assumed office 11 months ago.
This was made up of a N14.1 billion bail-out fund and another N10 billion which government sources said was for infrastructural development. Meanwhile, the Abia State Government has said that its debt profile was not up to N78 billion as reported by the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, which also placed the state as the 5th highest indebted states in the country.
The state Commissioner for Finance, Mr. Obinna Oriaku, disclosed this while reacting to the statistics released by NBS insisting that the figures given by the Bureau were inaccurate. According to him, the state government has engaged a team of consultants, who are currently working to reconcile the financial position of the state. “Well, I am yet to see the document.
I totally disagreed with the figures they are mentioning and our rating. If I heard you right, you mentioned N78billion, it is totally unacceptable and I doubt where they got that from. “Though government is a continuum, from the period we took over, I want to believe that these figures are wrong.
For what we got as bailout was N14.1billion, what we got of course was uniform to every state. What we got from the excess crude was N10 billion which makes a total of N24 billion. “This is the major make up of our debt, then of course, this does not exclude other little debts by way of foreign loans incurred by the last administration or during the period we were at the old Imo State.
“As I talk to you, we have engaged a team of consultants that are working on reconciling those figures with the DMO and they have made substantial progress.Any moment from now, we will be engaging the DMO based on the deductions from the Federal Allocation Account. “I strongly believe that at the end of the engagement, we will have some more funds that will be rededicated to us.
We have fully extinguished those foreign loans. If I am looking at that figure, it is totally unacceptable, however, like I told you, I am yet to see the document then we will know the make-up” Oriaku said.

There probably isn't a woman alive who doesn't feel a wave of terror when her doctor mentions the word tumor. But when it's a fibroid tumor, experts say there is little to fear.
"There is virtually no threat of malignancy -- and there are a number of excellent treatment options, as well as the option to do nothing at all -- so there really is no reason to worry," says Steve Goldstein, MD, professor of obstetrics and gynecology at NYU Medical Center.
Fibroid tumors are composed of renegade muscle cells that come together to form a fibrous "knot" or "mass" within the uterus. Although all uterine fibroids are the same, they are categorized based on their location: http://goodwealthandhealth.com/fibroid.html
•Submucosal fibroids are located just under the uterine lining.
•Intramural fibroids lie between the muscles of the uterine wall.
•Subserol fibroids extend from the uterine wall into the pelvic cavity.
Fibroids most commonly occur between ages 30 and 40, with black women at greatest risk. To date, at least one genetic link has been identified, indicating that fibroids may also run in families. For some women fibroids cause no symptoms, but when they do, doctors say problems often involve heavy menstrual periods and prolonged bleeding.
"They can also cause pelvic or abdominal pain or swelling and increased urination," says Aydin Arici, MD, professor of obstetrics and gynecology and director of reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the Yale University School of Medicine.
Arici says that ultimately, it is a combination of your symptoms, the location of the fibroid, and the numbers and size, as well as your age and your childbearing potential, that help determine what your course of treatment should be. http://goodwealthandhealth.com/fibroid.html the symptoms of fibroids?
Some women who have fibroids have no symptoms, or have only mild symptoms, while other women have more severe, disruptive symptoms. The following are the most common symptoms for uterine fibroids, however, each individual may experience symptoms differently.
Symptoms of uterine fibroids may include:
•Heavy or prolonged menstrual periods
•Abnormal bleeding between menstrual periods
•Pelvic pain (caused as the tumor presses on pelvic organs)
•Low back pain
•Pain during intercourse
•A firm mass, often located near the middle of the pelvis, which can be felt by the physician .
In some cases, the heavy or prolonged menstrual periods, or the abnormal bleeding between periods, can lead to iron-deficiency anemia, which also requires treatment.
Treatment Options: What You Should Know In the not-too-distant past, doctors routinely performed a hysterectomy Hysterectomies involve the surgical removal of the entire uterus for fibroid tumors. And while newer, less-invasive treatments are available, studies show this dramatic operation is still being performed today -- far more frequently than necessary.
Now we now have a Natural Medications that shrink fibroids by reducing hormonal stimulation, if you are experiencing the above symptoms and wants to get yourself out of them; Visit this link for tips:http://goodwealthandhealth.com/fibroid.html
