Naira Now N208 To A Dollar!

The Central Bank of Nigeria in November 2014 devalued the Naira to N168 to the dollar but this Fiscal policy did not seem to work out as the Naira depreciated against the dollar today!

The Naira was traded at N208 to a Dollar today from the N191.50 it sold for on Monday, Jan. 19. 

This means the naira has lost N16.50 within five days. 

However, the CBN's website put the Naira against the dollar at N167.50, while the Pound sold for N253.20 and the Euro still at N193.89S. 

The Pound Sterling and the Euro rates could not be ascertained at the Black Market.

Nigeria To Commence Production Of HIV/AIDS Drugs

UNAIDS Country Director, Dr Bilali Camara has confirmed that four companies will commence production of anti-retroviral drugs in Nigeria.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, Camara said the local production of anti-retroviral drugs would enable people access treatment at a cheaper rate.

He added that it will also help those on life treatment, stressing that people live on treatment for 15 to 30 years.

"We have commenced negotiations with four pharmaceutical companies; the companies have been certified by the World Health Organisation for the general manufacturing practices," he said.

The UNAIDS official said WHO would assist to conduct the prequalification processes,adding that "as soon as that is concluded they will commence the production of the anti-retroviral drugs in Nigeria."

Camara said many West and Central African states would benefit from the production, because no other country is producing the drugs in the region.

Saudi Arabia King Dies at 90

Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz has died, royal officials have announced, weeks after he was admitted to hospital.

Abdullah, who had ruled since 2005 and was said to be aged about 90, had been suffering from a lung infection.

His 79-year-old half-brother, Salman, has been confirmed as the new king.
Within hours of his accession to the throne of the oil-rich kingdom, King Salman vowed to maintain the same policies as his predecessors.
"We will continue adhering to the correct policies which Saudi Arabia has followed since its establishment," he said in a speech broadcast on state television.

Abdullah had suffered frequent bouts of ill health in recent years, and King Salman had recently taken on the ailing monarch's responsibilities.

Prior to announcing Abdullah's death, Saudi television cut to Koranic verses, which often signifies the passing of a senior royal.
A statement said Abdullah had died at 01:00 (22:00 GMT Thursday).

The Nigerian government has announced a reduction in the fuel price of petrol from N97 per litre to N87 per litre.

The Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, said at a press conference at the presidential villa, Abuja, on Sunday that the new price regime would take effect at midnight today.
Mrs. Alison-Madueke said the N10 reduction in fuel price was necessitated by the reduction in crude oil prices in the international market.

The Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency [PPPRA] and the Department of Petroleum Resources [DPR] have been asked to enforce strict compliance with the new pricing regime as soon as it becomes effective, the minister said.
The new measure is a reversal of government's policy on the matter.

Few days ago, on December 13, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, called on the government to implement immediate price reduction on fuel products to reflect the downscaling in global oil prices.

Speaking through his campaign organization, the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Mr. Buhari asked the government to "stop stealing from Nigerians and allow them enjoy the relief that has come to consumers of petroleum products globally".

The APC candidate had said, "The price of diesel which has been deregulated since 2009 still sells at the pump price of N150 and N170 per litre, the same pump price when the international benchmark per barrel of crude was over $100. Now that the international benchmark has dropped to $47.5 (USD) per barrel as at Monday, we ask: where is the deregulation and the relief which it ought to bring to local consumers of diesel?

"For the Nigerian consumers, unfortunately the collapse of crude oil price since October 2014 has not translated into any change in diesel, kerosene and PMS prices across the country.
"We challenge the federal government to reconcile the information on the website of the Petroleum Products Pricing and Regulatory Agency, indicating the maximum open market price of diesel per litre in December 2014 as being at N111.6 and the fact that the price has come down to less than $50 (USD) as at Monday.
"We want to posit that that the maximum indicative benchmark open consumers of diesel should pay is at a margin below N100 per litre. Therefore, Nigerians are being short-changed by about N50 to N70 on every litre of diesel sold by government."

How To Grow Your Natural Hair

Hair is the beauty of a woman.. Natural hair is what is being referred to by this saying..

Women, especially African women spend more money and time on weaves than they do on their natural hair.. If you fall in this category of women, then you need to care for your natural hair more henceforth!

Let your hair breathe! You'll never get to see some ladies' natural hair because they keep fixing one weave after the other.. Fine, fix weaves, braid your hair, do all sorts but you need to give your hair a break sometimes.. At least to treat it..

Some ladies relax their hair often.. You need to stop that ASAP if you're guilty of this! Relaxing the hair frequently thins out the hair which would eventually lead to breakage..
You should not relax your hair less than three months.. If you can, you should retouch twice or thrice a year concentrating on the new growth.. With good relaxing kit of course
By so doing, you allow your hair grow well..

These are few things you can apply to enhance the growth and thickness of your natural hair and to treat hair problems..

SHEA BUTTER: Yes, Ori as it is called in Yoruba, Okuma in igbo is the best hair moisturizer you can ever think of! It's gives your hair that silky textures others would envy..

LEMON JUICE - has proven itself in the treatment of hair care on a wide scale. Lemon juice applied to the scalp can treat problems like dandruff, hair loss and other problems related to the hair and scalp. If  you apply lemon juice directly on the hair, it can give your hair a natural shine.

A mixture of Emily Millionaire's Hair Fertilizer & Coconut oil makes hair grow more than you can imagine!

Oscar Pistorius Bags Five Years Imprisonment [FULL DETAILS]

Judge Thokozile Masipa rules Pistorius should be jailed for the culpable homicide of Reeva Steenkamp, but could be released on house arrest after 10 months. Oscar Pistorius is behind bars, reportedly at Kgosi Mampuru II prison in Pretoria, beginning a five-year jail sentence for the culpable homicide of Reeva Steenkamp. Judge Thokozile Masipa has given Pistorius a five-year prison sentence, telling him:
"I am of the view that a non-custodial sentence would send a wrong message to the community. On the other hand, a long sentence would not be appropriate either, as it would lack the element of mercy."
She also handed down a three-year sentence for negligently discharging a firearm in a crowded restaurant, wholly suspended and to be served concurrently.

Kanye West wants Beyonce and Kim Kardashian to end feud

Kanye West is reportedly trying to get Kim Kardashian to "soften" towards Beyoncé Knowles.

Kanye and Beyoncé's husband Jay Z are good friends and have even been on tour together. However, their wives don't get on quite so well, with speculation the singer is not too impressed with the reality TV star. Earlier this year it was claimed that Beyoncé asked not to be seated too close to Kim at the MTV VMAs, but she's apparently now had a re-think.

"But Kanye would love for things to be better and it trying to get Kim to soften.

Kim and Kanye tied the knot in Italy in May and it had been thought that Jay would act as best man. In the end, the A-list couple didn't attend - in part thought to be because Beyoncé didn't want to appear on Kim's show Keeping Up with the Kardashian.

"As far as Kim's concerned, the damage is done - she thinks Bey only wants to be friends because she wants something from her now," an insider told British magazine Heat.

"Kim's ignoring her calls so far. Bey's going to have to eat some serious humble pie to make up for all the public snubs she's made over the years and for missing her wedding," the source said.
"She's certainly not going to forgive her just because Kim's a bit more famous now and Beyoncé's popularity has taken a hit.
