Recall that Man United and Ronaldo parted ways last month following his explosive interview with British broadcaster Piers Morgan. “We had interesting discussions, and there was genuine interest, but it’s clear he has other priorities at this stage,” Townsend told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Fuel scarcity: How filling station attendants encourage black marketers in Abuja

Following the return of long fuel scarcity and long queues at filling stations across the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, fuel attendants have been accused of encouraging the sales of black market. It was observed that black marketers have taken advantage of the fuel scarcity around the Federal capital city to make brisk business. Despite assurances by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPC, of adequate fuel in December, Abuja has been witnessing long queues, increasing business for black marketers. Our correspondent gathered that while motorists groan in filling stations over lack of fuel, black marketers can be seen clustering around filling stations while displaying fuels in jerry cans openly in an attempt to attract customers.

HURIWA knocks CBN over new withdrawal limits, says new policy can’t work

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), on Wednesday, criticised the Central Bank of Nigeria over its weekly cash withdrawal limits, saying the measure cannot help the worsening depreciation of the naira. HURIWA’s National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, in a statement, said the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele is chasing shadows having crippled Nigeria’s economy with poor fiscal policies in his about 10-year regime at the apex bank. The group said rather than coming up with experimental and needless policies like the redesigning of the naira, cash withdrawal limits, amongst others, the apex bank and the Federal Government should cut down foreign loans and reduce Nigeria’s worsening external debt burden which has been said by experts to be the dominant cause of naira depreciation against the United States dollar. HURIWA further said the daily maximum withdrawals via point of sale (PoS) terminal of N20,000 will force thousands of Nigerians who are PoS operators out of jobs, when the policy takes effect nationwide from January 9, 2023. The group faulted the policy as bad for a country with 21.09% inflation rate, 133 million …
