A Nigerian man has gotten presidential applause in Uganda for making electric bikes in the country. Media sources identified the Nigerian man as a talented engineer and scientist in Uganda. His name is Professor Emeka Akaezuwa and he is said to be the Vice Chancellor of the International University of East Africa in Uganda.

Meet the Nigerian man who got Ugandan presidential applause for leading a team to produce electric bikes in Uganda

It is often said that Nigerians love to show their strength, talents and creativity wherever they find themselves across the world. This has just been proven once again by Professor Emeka Akaezuwa who is now praised for inventing electric bikes in Uganda. Despite being a Nigerian man working as Vice Chancellor of a school in Uganda, he is still giving all his best to improve the country in his own way. The wonderful engineer led a team of talented researchers to build electric motorbikes that are fully functional. As a matter of fact, the bikes are said to be plying public roads already in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda.

The Nigerian professor who developed electric motorbikes in Uganda has gotten wider recognition. Press reports claim that President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda recently applauded the project led by the Nigerian man. The Ugandan president described the electric motorbikes project as “groundbreaking”. He mentioned that e-bikes will serve as a good solution for people facing fuel problems in Uganda. Also, e-bikes are obviously a great means of departing from petrol-powered vehicles. What is more interesting about the Nigerian man’s project is the fact that he developed electric bikes using local talents in Uganda. It feels so good to always see Nigerians abroad doing great things and making the nation proud overseas.

Tinubu denies demanding N50bn monthly from former Lagos Gov, Ambode

Published

The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has denied reports alleging that he demanded N50 billion monthly from the former Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode during his administration.

DAILY POST reports that Ambode who emerged governor of the state in 2025, had only four years in office as his attempt to secure a second tenure failed after he lost the APC primary election in 2018.

A report recently emerged online alleging that part of his inability to secure the APC governorship ticket in 2018 was his refusal to remit the said amount to Asiawaju.

Debunking the report on Tuesday, a statement by the Director, Media and Communications for Tinubu Campaign Organisation(TCO), Bayo Onanuga said Tinubu could not have made such a demand.

“The spuriousness of the statement is in the evidence that Lagos did not begin to clock N50 billion revenue until after Ambode left office.

“Tinubu could not have demanded a billion monthly payment from Ambode when the state government didn’t make such in a month throughout the tenure of Ambode”, the statement added.

CBN Illegally Printing Money For Buhari Government – Moghalu

Nigerian Central Bank Illegally Printing Money For Buhari Government While Pretending To Be Fighting Inflation – Ex-Central Bank Deputy Governor, Moghalu

The former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Professor Kingsley Moghalu has blamed the nation’s worsening economy on the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, describing her fiscal mismanagement of Nigeria as a ‘calamity’.

Moghalu, who contested to be Nigerian President in 2019 under the platform of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) and lost to President Muhammadu Buhari, regretted that the nation’s apex bank which is supposed to check the excesses of the ministry of finance and the political elite has compromised under the leadership of Godwin Emefiele.

The Anambra-born political economist, who took to his Twitter handle @MoghaluKingsley, accused the current leadership of the CBN as an appendage of the government rather than being independent. “It sees itself as a quasi-fiscal agent, using its ability to print money, for the government of the day,” Moghalu said.

He said the wheels have come off the Nigerian economy, which he described as a victim of a mismanaged fiscal space and a deeply compromised central bank that has sold its soul to politicians and private sector profiteers.

Moghalu stated in the tweet, “It’s not often I agree with Nigeria’s Minister of Finance Zainab Ahmed. Not because of anything but because I fundamentally disagree with what I consider her fiscal mismanagement of Nigeria. But at least she recently gave an honest assessment of how broke-assed Nigeria is now.

“As for my dear beloved @cenbank and its Governor, the less said the better. For that, I believe, is the ultimate calamity. Why? Normally, the Finance Minister directly answers to the President. Where a federal government is not reform-oriented as in the President Obasanjo era the Minister can be subjected to negative political pressure if he/she is not a strong, respected and accomplished personality like @NOIweala, of whom politicians were wary because she wasn’t exactly into one-chance bus travel masquerading as “fiscal management”.

“Moreover, President Obasanjo protected her and her reforms. President @GEJonathan strongly backed her, even if “parallel” other activities that were kept beyond her remit, eg in the petroleum sector, went on. But where a @cenbank is truly independent, as we were in our time, it can serve as a check, in the national interest, on the worst excesses of profligate politicians that often dot Nigeria’s landscape of high-level public appointments.

“In the current scenario, the leadership of the Bank evidently does not believe in the concept of central bank independence in its operations. Rather, the Bank asks “how high?” once the Presidency says “jump”. It sees itself as a quasi-fiscal agent, using its ability to print money, for the government of the day. This is what the rent-seekers and parasites that benefit from this situation justify as “unorthodox” central banking (as in, of course, central banking in Zimbabwe and Venezuela).

“Well, what’s the result today? Between a mismanaged fiscal space and a deeply compromised central bank that has sold its soul to politicians and private sector profiteers, the wheels have come off the Nigerian economy. If the CBN is busy printing money for the government through illegal Ways and Means lending, and then pretends to be fighting inflation by belated raises of the Monetary Policy Rate and what one commentator aptly termed a “dubious” cash reserve ratio policy on commercial banks, how can we fight inflation successfully?

“Please don’t tell me that “inflation is a global phenomenon” just as some will mischievously or ignorantly refer to the levels of debt to GDP ratios of advanced, productive economies. There is a difference between real global challenges and us fundamentally killing our own economy with our own hands in the service of corruption, vested interests, and incompetent political leaders.

“The combined fiscal, monetary and forex calamity superintended by the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and Planning, on the one hand, and the leadership of the CBN of the past 7 years, on the other, is a tragedy for Nigeria that could have been avoided. The effects on the lives of the average Nigerian are truly sad to see. This is a cautionary tale for the next President of Nigeria.

“If we want to renew and revive Nigeria’s economy, the right politics will be to do the the RIGHT thing. Let institutions that are statutorily independent be so. Let competence govern critical aspects of our national life.

“After all, when the positive results come eventually, the political leader will take the credit too! This is why I have argued that the problem is not an absence of competence in economic management in Nigeria. The problem is an absence of competent political leadership.

“The CBN is the greatest repository of fine, competent technocrats in the Nigerian public sector today. Other agencies of government have in the past relied heavily on the Bank for the secondment of competent personnel. The same caliber of economists and technocrats are still there. The politics at the top has tied their hands.”
