Media entrepreneur Mo Abudu, on Saturday on Instagram, announced that she’s just accepted an appointment from Harvard Business School (HBS) as an Executive Fellow. “I started my fellowship yesterday, September 30th,” she wrote in the post.

They also bring their expertise to the School’s HBS Online and Executive Education programs by collaborating with faculty in case development and other research projects. Fellow appointments range from a few months to one year and may be extended.

Truly, it is an honour and a privilege for me to take up this appointment as an HBS Executive Fellow and to share experiences. My primary focus will be on research, with some instruction and advisory/coaching for MBA students. I will be producing a unique, fascinating and exciting project, in collaboration with HBS faculty, during my time here. I look forward to telling you more about this project soon!” Mo Abudu continued in her post, adding that she still remains the CEO of the EbonyLife Group. “This appointment is part time for an agreed period.

Putin’s Miscalculation Will Lead To His Downfall, Chemical Weapon – Ex-UK Spy says

A former head of British spy agency, M16 Russian division, Christopher Steele has said President Vladimir Putin of Russia miscalculated with the war over Ukraine.

Steele said the crippling sanctions on Russia by the international community would have an adverse effect on the country which may lead to the use of a chemical weapon.

He noted that Putin’s regime would ultimately collapse due to the sanctions imposed on Russia by the international community.

Speaking with Sky News, Steele said the sanctions imposed on Russia may lead to protests in Moscow and across the country.

He said: “I don’t see him surviving this in the long term. I think we’ve gone over a watershed here.

“An operation on this scale is really beyond Russia. I think there are several gross miscalculations here by Putin.

“As people’s living standards start to fall, they will be increased protests on the streets of Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities. And I think that will play into probably an elite attempt to remove Putin in due course.

“As the Russian army becomes bogged down, more desperate, and clearly not realising its objectives militarily, you’re likely to see more indiscriminate killing and bombardment and possibly the use of a [chemical] weapon.”

Two weeks ago, Russia had begun a war against Ukraine over its decision to join NATO.

Putin, however, called the invasion of Ukraine a military exercise.

Queues Returned as Fuel Scarcity Hits Lagos and Abuja

The fear of scarcity spread across the metropolis.

In Abuja, the queues, which have lingered for some days, continued.

In both cities, black marketers flooded major highways with petrol in cans, selling to motorists on the roadside.

In Lagos, vehicles lined up at Ajah, Lekki, Victoria Island and the mainland areas in search of premium motor spirit (PMS), otherwise known as petrol.

It was the same situation in Sango-Ota, Mowe, Ibafo and Arepo axis on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

There were long queues all over Abuja. Very few petrol stations had the product.

Most of the outlets on the Kubwa Expressway were shut.

The few that had the product were packed with vehicles. It was the same in the Nyanya area.

At the city centre, queues created gridlock in parts of Wuse and Garki.

Black marketers had a field day, selling from between N300 to N400 per litre.

The situation may worsen if the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) carries out its threat to withdraw haulage service should the Federal Government not address rising operational costs.

But the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited said there was no need for panic buying.

Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Garba Deen Muhammad, said in a statement: “The NNPC Ltd wishes to assure the public that the company has sufficient PMS stock to meet the needs of Nigerians.

“The public is, therefore, advised not to engage in panic buying of petrol; and to ignore all rumours that may suggest otherwise.

“In line with the existing laws of the land, NNPC Ltd. is deeply committed to ensuring energy security for the country.”

In Ajah, an NNPC mega station was shut.

Many other stations shut their gates to motorists on Lagos Island, except Oando on the Lekki-Ajah Expressway.

But there were no queues in all the petrol stations along Ikorodu Road as motorists drove in to refill with ease.

The situation was the same around Ketu, Ojota and Mile 12.

A filling station manager told The Nation that marketers were hoarding the fuel in anticipation of an increase in the pump price.

Isaiah Jesuwale, who works with Mobil filling station in Mushin, said: “There is nothing like queue here as you can see. The news of fuel scarcity is a rumour and nothing more. Fuel is still at N162.50 and there has been no directive from above for it to change.”

President of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Chinedu Okoronkwo, told The Nation all member stations sold petrol.

“Take a look around town, you will see that all IPMAN members are selling petrol; none of them has shut their gate to the public. But let’s wait till tomorrow (today) then we can talk more,” he said.

NARTO National President, Yusuf Othman, in a statement, said members of the association found it difficult to sustain their businesses because the freight rate is regulated and paid in arrears.

“We can’t operate that way. Transporters whose freight rate is fixed and regulated cannot sustain the business if nothing is done.

“We can’t work if nothing is done to increase the freight rate. The condition is unbearable because of the cost of diesel,” he said.

Othman urged the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) to urgently increase the freight rate to reflect the present cost of diesel and spare parts.

According to him, the ex-depot cost of diesel soared to N401 per litre yesterday and may hit N420 per litre if something is not done urgently.

He urged the NMDPRA Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Malam Farouk Ahmed, to convene a stakeholder meeting to increase the freight rate and address other pressing issues of cost of operation.

“Today, the price of AGO ex-depot is N401 per litre. It means that in Abuja, Kaduna, Kano, it will reach N420 to N430. At the filling station, it will get to N450.

“Regulate our rising operation cost. It is as simple as that. Otherwise, our people have parked their trucks and more people are going to park,” he said.

Petrol sufficiency days and stock figures are receding and unstable, according to an NMDPRA sufficiency report for January 27, February 2, and February 3.

The NNPC used to boast about 30 to 40 days stock sufficiency and about 2 billion metres, but the stock has dipped to 25.45 24 days sufficiency and about 1,425,046,694 litres as of February 3.

From the stock breakdown, there were 769,417,053 litres in-land, 98,365,735 litres at berth and 557,263,906 litres marine stock.

The reserve was 1,506,046,692 litres on February 2, an equivalent of 26.89 days sufficiency.

The breakdown for February 2 was 769,293,346 litres of land-based stock and 736,753,128 marine stock at berth (offshore).

On January 27, the reserve was a 1,345,338,930 litres stock of petrol.

Last month, the stock day sufficiency receded from 26.78 days on January 26 to 24.02 days sufficiency on January 27.

As of January 27, there was total in-land stock of 788,968,309 litres and 213,917,185 litres as total jetty (at berth) stock.

The report added that there were 342,453,436 litres of marine stock. The total reserve for the day was 1,345,338,930 litres. The previous day, the reserve was 1,499,806,953 being 26.78 days stock sufficiency.

The stock sufficiency was 25.47 days on January 25.

Ahead of Yuletide, the NNPC said it raised its reserves from 1.7billion to 2 billion litres.

Nigeria consumes between 54 million to 60 million of petrol daily.

The scarcity followed rumours that the Federal Government planned to remove the subsidy.

Despite the subsequent announcement that the government had shelved the subsidy removal plan, products supply was still a far cry from the demand for it.

Convener of a civil society organisation (CSO), Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, decried the alleged hoarding of petroleum products by independent marketers.

In a letter to the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, he said the withholding of petrol was to “criminally increase the prices, cause artificial scarcity and plunge the country into widespread economic chaos.”

He said it was worrisome that regulators had not deemed it necessary to call the independent marketers to order but continue to allow them to take advantage of Nigerians.

Reps Adopts Bill Seeking to Confer Citizenship on Foreigners Who Marry Nigerian Women

Nigerian women are in for a major win as a bill seeking to confer citizenship rights on foreigners married to them has been adopted by the committee of the House of Representatives established to amend the 1999 Constitution.

The bill was adopted following its presentation by consultants working with the lawmakers on the amendment of the document, PremiumTimes reports.

According to the report, Joy Ezeilo, one of the consultants working with the committee, while presenting the recommendation of the consultants, said existing provision in the constitution is discriminatory against women.

The existing law only allows citizenship by registration to be conferred on foreigners married to Nigerian men. She said the bill seeks to amend section26 (2a) of the 1999 Constitution by opening citizenship by registration to male and female.

The proposal would still follow Nigeria’s rigorous constitutional amendment procedure, including passage by both chambers of the National Assembly, approval of at least 24 of the 36 state legislatures and presidential assent.

Hushpuppi: Suspended Police Officer, Abba Kyari, May Be Extradited to The U.S — FG says

The Nigerian Government is in talks with the United States Government over the possible extradition of suspended police officer, Abba Kyari, who was fingered in a multi-million dollars fraud allegedly masterminded by Ramon Abbas, better known as Hushpuppi.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) disclosed this on Monday, February 7, in an interview with Channel Television.

According to him, “It is an issue that has international and national dimensions. Actions have been taken, it is a work-in-process locally and internationally and we are doing whatever it takes to ensure justice is done within the context of the law regardless of the personalities that are involved.

When criminality is involved, Nigeria and US naturally work together when there are elements of the offences that have taken place in the diverse jurisdictions. So, Nigeria is doing the needful by way of supporting what America is doing for the purpose of ensuring that the cases are tried accordingly within the context of the American context of it. And then, eventually, if there is need for local prosecution, nothing stops it.

There are a lot of issues that are ongoing inclusive of the possibility of consideration for extradition. That is where the collaboration element of it comes into play.

As far as I am concerned, the parties are discussing, the parties are collaborating, there are exchanges of correspondence from the perspective of investigation, from the perspective of extradition, and associated things.

Reasonable grounds for suspicion have been established and that will eventually translate to the possibility of prosecution and conviction if indeed one is adjudged guilty by the law.”
