Nigeria’s Crude Oil Production Falls

http://ift.tt/2Cav6Rb

Nigeria’s crude oil production fell by 8,100 barrels per day (bpd) from 1.828 mbpd it recorded in December, to 1.819mbpd in January 2018.

The decrease may not be unconnected with the various line breaches caused by vandals in the later part of 2017, which led to the shut-in of production in many fields.

Nigerian Guardian reports that the development also had impact on the total Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC’s) oil production, which averaged 32.30 mbpd in January, representing a minor decrease of 8,000 tbpd over the previous month.

According to OPEC in its latest oil market report, while production mainly decreased in Venezuela, and Angola, partially offset by Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Libya, Nigeria has continued to experience pipeline disruption, impacting negatively on its production volumes.

For example, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) disclosed that a total 90 pipeline points were vandalised, 41 points failed to be welded, and another six were either ruptured or clamped in November 2017.

The NNPC also said that 136 pipeline points were destroyed in the month under review while Port Harcourt Calabar-Aba and Aba-Enugu pipeline segment accounted for almost 67 per cent of the affected points.

It stated: “About 195,000bopd remained shut-in for the entire month of October 2017, due to slow recoveries from some wells and repairs on the 42- inch export line and fuel gas line.

“A plant trip a result of gas detected caused a drop in production for a day at Akpo Terminal. The production shut-in was 22,000 barrels. Production also dropped for eight days due to shut-in of some wells as a result of request from NLNG for Akpo to cut off gas export due to operational issues. The production shut-in was 61,000bpd. Another 83,000 barrels of production was also shut-in for a day due to intervention and preventive maintenance activities.“The Trans Forcados Pipeline was shut down for eight days due to leaks in the Oteghele and Yeye axis with the loss of approximately 200,000bopd of production.”

Meanwhile, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, has assured that the Federal government is targeting an increase to 3mbpd.

Nigerias crude oil production falls

He said: “Investment is needed to maintain essential work, just to get fields online and cap them will require an average of about $10 billion per year in investments over the next three to four years.”

Zenith Bank, 5 Other Banks Meet Central Bank of Nigeria Dividend Rule

http://ift.tt/2sFzQKD

A circular of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on dividend payout by commercial banks and discount houses has been analysed based on the performances and balance sheet positions of all lenders.

According to a report released on Monday, February 19, by Afrinvest West Africa, an investment and research firm, only six banks have met the apex bank’s minimum requirement for Capital Adequacy Ration (CAR) and Non-Performing Loans.

They are: Access Bank, Zenith Bank, Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB), First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Wema Bank and United Bank for Africa (UBA).

Hence these banks are excluded from the restrictions on dividend payment.

The Nation reports that the firm stressed that many lenders will not be able to pay dividends based on their capital reserves as well as the proportion of Non-Performing Loans (NPLs) in a bid to forestall any threats to customer deposits in the system.

On the criteria that require lenders to meet the minimum CAR before dividend payout, the research firm said all the banks under its coverage, save for Unity and Union, met the minimum requirement stipulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

“For Unity, the current CAR (as at nine month 2017) is unavailable while Union Bank had a CAR of 13.3 per cent (below CBN requirement of 15 per cent in first half of 2017). We envisage Union’s CAR will improve by fiscal year 2017, adjusting for the capital raise of N50 billion via rights issue in 2017,” it said.

On another requirement that banks and discount houses that have a Composite Risk Rating (CRR) of “High” or a Non-Performing Loan (NPL) ratio of above 10 per cent shall not be allowed to pay dividend, the report said only FBN Holdings has a non-performing loan ratio above 10 per cent which should disqualify the entity from paying dividend.

“However, given the Holding company structure operated by FBN Holdings, analysts believe dividend can be paid from earnings of subsidiaries, other than the bank,” it said.

It is understood that Diamond Bank, Fidelity Bank, Stanbic IBTC, Sterling and Union Bank are restricted to a maximum of 30% maximum payout ratio, with respective NPL ratio above five per cent but below 10%.

Mohammed Adoke to be arraigned on June 18 at Federal High Court

http://ift.tt/2EBCwKz

Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court, sitting in Maitama, Abuja, has adjourned to June 18, 2018 for the arraignment of a former Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke and eight others over their alleged involvement in the sale of Oil Prospecting License, OPL 245, also known as Malabu Oil.

The others are Dan Etete, a former Minister of Petroleum Resources; Aliyu Abubakar; Ralph Wetzels; Casula Roberto; Pujatti Stefen;, Burrafati Sebestiano and Malabu Oil and Gas Limited.

The defendants are to be prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for their allegedly complicity to defraud the Federal Government to the tune of $1.1billion in a suspicious oil block deal.

Specifically, Adoke was said to have played a major role in the fraudulent deal that saw to the transfer of ownership of Malabu Oil to two multinational oil companies – Shell Nigeria Exploration Production Company and Nigeria Agip Exploration Limited.

On April 3, 2017, the EFCC, through its counsel, Johnson Ojogbane, approached the court, requesting to be guided on whether or not to issue an arrest warrant against Adoke “as the former AGF and some of the defendants are residing outside the shores of Nigeria, making the service of writ of summons on them difficult.”

But, Justice Tsoho opined that “once a person has been arraigned before a court and is attempting to escape, then it becomes necessary to issue a warrant of arrest. But in this case, Adoke has not been arraigned; the matter is still being investigated.” The matter was later adjourned to June 13, but again, the arraignment could not hold due to the absence of Adoke in court. It was then adjourned to October 26, 2017. Subsequently, when the matter came up on October 26, 2017, Ojogbane informed the court that “the process of getting the defendants to appear in court to face arraignment has been very cumbersome”.

adoke to appear at federal high court

He further assured that “the process would be concluded very soon.” The matter was then adjourned to today. At the resumed sitting, Ojogbane, told the court that the Federal Government is still working hard to ensure the presence of the defendants in court, for their arraignment. “Our journey so far has been tortuous and very cumbersome. The government continues to work to ensure their presence before this honourable court,” Ojogbane said. He continued: “my lord, in the circumstances, we are asking my lord to graciously grant us a long adjournment to enable us continue the process of extradition which is ongoing. Peradventure we have the defendants before the long date; we will make an appropriate application to breach the time.” The court granted Ojogbane’s prayer and adjourned.

Nigerians using motorcycles to smuggle rice from Niger Republic

http://ift.tt/2BBxaAv

Smuggle rice was banned so as to allow for local production and patronage. But allowing some sections of the country to freely import such commodity is injustice. And the rate of Injustice this present Government of Muhammad Buhari has introduced into the polity of Nigeria politics and life scars me dearly because i fear the effect.

In a previous news on utooblog where a custom officers chased and killed a rice smuggler in Lagos because he was importing some numbers of bags of rice through Lagos.

But wait it seems customs as turned blind eyes in the operations of smugglers in the North with such a lineup of motor bike with bags of rice it shows an open boarder for the scared cows offcourse and that could also be responsible with the sophistication of weaponry of the Fulani herdsmen.

This viral photo was shared by a Facebook user who captioned it as, ‘Nigerians using motorcycles to smuggle bags of foreign rice from Niger Republic to Nigeria thereby sabotaging our local initiatives and later blame the government.

Air Peace aircraft unable to land as cattle overtake Akure airport runway

http://ift.tt/2EOL1VX

An Air Peace aircraft was unable to land at the Akure airport on Saturday because the runway was overrun by cattle.

The herd of cattle reportedly strayed onto the runway of Akure airport in Ondo state around 12pm, at about the same time flight P4 7002 was supposed to land, and airport officials were unprepared for it because it took them by surprise. It took the intervention of officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and other security operatives to clear the runway for safe landing.

Gov Fayose talked about the incident on Twitter. Former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode also reported the same thing and said it might have cost the life of passengers.

Chris Iwarah, spokesman of Air Peace airline, confirmed the incident in a statement.

“We confirm that flight P4 7002 from Lagos had to delay landing into Akure Airport today (Saturday) when the pilot-in-command sighted cows on the runway at about 12.15pm,” he said.

“On being alerted by control tower, aviation security personnel of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN AVSEC) quickly intervened and cleared the runway.

“The flight was eventually cleared to land after about seven minutes. Our guests on board were all calm while the delay lasted. The aircraft departed for Lagos at about 1.06 with full escort from FAAN security personnel.”

The federal government through the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has apologised to Air Peace Airlines and its passengers following the incident.

Sacred Tibetan Jokhang Monastery in Lhasa hit by fire

http://ift.tt/2GkqtBZ

A fire broke out at the most important shrine in Tibetan Buddhism – the Jokhang Monastery in Lhasa.

Footage posted online showed flames billowing from the roof and what appeared to be at least one gutted pagoda. Chinese state media said the blaze started late on Saturday and was soon put out. No casualties were reported.

State media said there was no damage to cultural relics. Tibet, the remote and mainly-Buddhist territory known as the “roof of the world”, is governed as an autonomous region of China.

The Jokhang monastery is more than 1,000 years old and is listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Reports say Chinese authorities quickly tried to block footage and images of the fire appearing on social media. Beijing maintains tight control of news reports from Tibet, where Buddhist sites have been a focal point for separatist unrest in the past.

The fire comes as Tibetans celebrate Losar, their traditional new year, which began on Friday.

Florida School Shooting Trump accuse FBI of Missteps

http://ift.tt/2ocYxs8

President Donald Trump has rebuked the FBI for missing signals before Wednesday’s Florida school shooting.

The agency was “spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign”, Mr Trump tweeted.

“There is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud.”

The FBI has admitted it failed to act on a tip-off about suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz, who has confessed to the shooting at a high school in Parkland in which 17 people died.

It was the deadliest US school shooting since 2012 and has re-ignited long-running debates about tougher firearm restrictions.

Earlier, students who survived the shooting rallied in Florida, demanding tighter legislation on gun control and criticising the president for receiving financial support from the National Rifle Association (NRA) during his presidential campaign.

United States Indicts 13 Russians for interfering in the 2016 Presidential election

http://ift.tt/2ocYxs8

The US special prosecutor investigating Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election on Friday indicted 13 Russians for allegedly running a secret campaign to tilt the vote, prompting claims of vindication from President Donald Trump.

The indictment which includes the first charges laid by special counsel Robert Mueller for election interference detailed a stunning operation launched in 2014 in a bid to sow social division in the US and influence American politics “including the presidential election of 2016.”

Mueller alleges that by mid-2016, the campaign under the direction of Yevgeny Prigozhin, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin became focused on boosting Trump and demeaning his rivals including Democrat Hillary Clinton.

It allegedly involved “hundreds” of people working in shifts and with a budget of millions of dollars. Three companies were also indicted. Moscow dismissed the allegations as “absurd.” According to the indictment, members of the group posed as US citizens on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, posting content that reached “significant numbers” of Americans.

United States presidential election

The group was allegedly in contact with “unwitting” members of the Trump campaign, but had a broader “strategic goal to sow discord in the US political system.” Content created by the group was retweeted by the president’s two eldest sons Don Jr and Eric, as well as other top campaign officials and members of Trump’s inner circle. “There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity,” said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. He added that there was also no judgment on whether the campaign “altered the outcome.”
