Nigeria's Minister Of Finance Kemi Adeosun Opens London Stock Exchange. Photos

Kemi Adeosun, minister of finance, on Friday opened the London Stock Exchange (LSEG) to celebrate the business ties between Nigeria and UK, while promoting the 3rd ‘London and Lagos Capital Markets in Partnership’ conference.
The minister, who was joined by Greg Hands, a member of the UK parliament and the UK minister of state for international trade, said Nigeria is good for business.

Adeosun, who explained how Nigeria intends to fund its budget deficit, said Nigeria’s low-interest lending rate remains on course. She said the country has a headroom for borrowing, since it has a low debt-to-GDP ratio.

Speaking on Nigeria, Hands said: “I know from my own time in Nigeria that the UK and Nigeria have long enjoyed a close and prosperous business relationship.

“The UK is one of Nigeria’s largest investors and the government is committed to boosting trade between our two countries.

“We are actively helping British companies export to Nigeria and Nigerian businesses to locate and expand in the UK. I welcome this initiative as a further step to deepen the commercial links between our nations.”

Amina Mohammed, minister of environment, gave a keynote address discussing the Nigerian government’s green agenda.

The event, hosted in collaboration with the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), was attended by senior Nigerian policymakers, including Chinelo Anohu-Amazu, director-general, Nigerian Pension Commission; Oscar Onyema, chief executive officer of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE); and Roger Brown, CFO of Seplat Petroleum.

Recession Hits Dangote Hard, Unable To Pay Workers’ Salaries

The current economic situation in the country certainly affects everybody and everything, even Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, is groaning, according to P.M News. Investigations at one of Dangote’s companies, Dansa Foods Nig. Ltd off Lagos-Badagry expressway revealed that workers have not been paid their salaries for the past six months.
The company which produces Dansa juice and other goods, it was learnt, has laid off more than half of the workforce following dwindling sales and high cost of production caused by high exchange rate of the Naira.

The company, it was learnt, has suspended the production of Dansa juice and other products. ”We are only producing Mowa bottle water now,” a source at the company revealed.

But the workers are not taking it kindly with the management of the company and have insisted that their six months unpaid salaries be paid to them.

To this end, the workers have embarked on strike to press home their demand.

One of the workers who did not want his name mentioned said he and his colleagues decided to go on strike to force the management to pay their salaries.

”We are being owed six months. The company has refused to pay us so we are embarking on strike,” the worker added.

Efforts to speak with the management of the company proved unsuccessful as one of the managers refused to pick his phone calls.

Bloomberg in its latest Billionaire Index reports revealed that Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, lost $ 5.4 billion in his fortune this year.

The loss was occasioned by the massive fall of the Naira as the Central Bank of Nigeria rations the dollar to stem huge capital outflow in the wake of Nigeria’s worst economic crisis.

12-Year-Old Boy Set To Marry His 11-Year-Old Cousin Sparks Outrage In Egypt. Photos

An 12-year-old boy will marry his cousin, 11, after the groom-to-be's father gave the couple's engagement his blessing. While family and friends celebrated Nasser Hassan's eldest son's lavish wedding, the father decided to 'double the joy' in Egypt by announcing the engagement.
Egyptian law prohibits marriages for anyone under 18 and the decision for Omar, 12, and Gharam, 11, to marry has sparked outrage among activists.

The father told Egypt's Al Watan newspaper there was 'nothing inappropriate' about the couple, adding that it was only 'an engagement, not a marriage'.

The wedding of the older brother was held 75 miles north of Cairo, and when the announcement was made, guests didn't bat an eyelid, according to the Washington Post.

But photos of the young couple were published in local media which were met with anger.

Omar's father brushed off any criticism, and said he 'is a free man and did nothing wrong'.

'Omar has always loved Gharam so much that he used to say he will marry her when they grow up before any other man asks for her hand in marriage when she is older,' he added.

'They will get married when they reach the legal age.'
