He wrote: “My princes are spending the first weekend at their mother’s place! They are having a swell time and so is mama Aragorn. Thanks be to God. God bless and be with them all. @snowhiteey well don”

Update On Reconciling With Fani-Kayode

A few months ago, Precious in a social media post, revealed that she can now spend time with her sons after being ostracized from them for a very long time.

According to precious she and FFK were working towards shared custody.

She stated further that she can now have long talks with her former husband for as long as two hours and still settle their differences amicably.

She wrote: “Gratitude and appreciation post. To everyone who shed a tear or two, to everyone who believed in me, to everyone who couldn’t sleep thinking of me. Words fail me!!! It isn’t perfect yet but it is beautiful. I am not in custody yet but we are negotiating terms for shared custody and end of a pending cases. Hopefully soon. Beautiful to be at peace with God, myself and others. Beautiful to kiss my boys once again, look into their eyes and make them giggle in pride, have Ikenna flash his gap tooth in excitement. Jidenna trying to bully me with his size, my Tobenna kiss me like he always does with so much admiration and love making me feel like chocolates in the hands of kids, my Lotanna leading and playing fixer or conflict resolver using the wisdom of King Solomon.

Beautiful because I also got to that point where I could sit with their father for hours, speak about the past 2 years, have intense arguments and disagreements but still find closure without bitterness, resolving to forge on separately without bad blood, putting these 4 young men above all wrongs given or received and Co-parenting peacefully. I can’t thank you all enough. Mentioning names would be shooting myself on the legs but I would be reaching out individually”.

Musk’s company had planned to import lithium, an essential component for building batteries of electric vehicles, from Nigeria, where a large deposits of the minerals are found in Kogi, Plateau, Nasarawa, Oyo, Ekiti, Cross River, and Kwara states.

An unnamed representative of Tesla had discussed with Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Olamilekan Adegbite, on trade pact that would see Musk’s company list Nigeria as one of its market source for lithium.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has revealed that Nigeria in six months of 2022 attracted $1.47 billion capital inflows.

According to CBN the Nigerian banking industry attracted $1.47 billion as capital inflows in the first half of 2022, an increase of 109.8% compared to $698.2 million received in the second half of last year.

The Africa Fintech Foundry (AFF) says it is collaborating with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to support 10 startups, to increase the adoption of eNaira in the country.

The Head of AFF, Daniel Awe, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Lagos.

He spoke on the sideline of the Semi-Final Pitching of the eNaira Hackathon 2022.

Mr Awe said that the top 10 startups, innovators, and entrepreneurs, were part of the over 5,000 startups that registered for the eNaira Hackathon.

He said that there was a need to increase the adoption of eNaira in the country, as it enhanced financial inclusion, supported the digital economy and improved economic activities.

”eNaira was introduced by CBN in 2021 as a digital currency and a lot of people have asked the question, what is actually the usefulness of this eNaira?

”A lot of people have also criticised eNaira, that they prefer cryptocurrency, but the truth is that eNaira is going to be a successful product when there are use cases when people are able to see problems it is going to be solving,” he said.

Awe said that AFF and CBN were collaborating on the hackathon in order to increase the adoption of eNaira.

”So the hackathon is a platform where innovators, developers, entrepreneurs, coders come together, to solve problems, to create innovative ideas.

”When we layer that on eNaira, it means we brought in different players within the ecosystem – developers, coders, innovators, entrepreneurs, to come up with different ideas, different use cases, that they can leverage on eNaira.

”This is so that the consumers of eNaira will now see the benefit of eNaira, they will have the opportunity to see the problem that eNaira will solve,” he said.

Mr Awe said that CBN’s role was just to create the platform for fintech startups and the role of entrepreneurs was to create the ecosystem to create solutions that would benefit the entire financial services space.

He said about 5,000 players within the fintech ecosystem applied for the hackathon.

Mr Awe said that they were reduced to about 175 teams and eventually 70 for the quarter-final pitching.

He said that the semi-final would see 20 teams being selected for the finals, of which the top 10 would be assisted to boost eNaira adoption in the country.

”Now, these top 10 potential businesses when they come out of the final of the hackathon, there is a cash prize for them.

”I think number one is going to get 5 million eNaira. Number two is getting 3 million eNaira. Number three, 2 million and the remaining, the next ten will get 1 million eNaira.

 

”Afterwards, those top 10 will resume in the AFF accelerator programme, whereby some of them will get some funding to start up their businesses on their ideas,” he said.

Mr Awe said that they would be guided by CBN and AFF.

He said that by the time they come up with good business with their innovations, employment would be created and they would increase the adoption of eNaira.

Mr Awe said that there was the possibility of wealth that would be created by these people.
