Nigeria To Seek Extension

Of Crude Deal


The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, says Nigeria will seek for a further six-month extension of its exemption from reducing oil production granted by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC.


Thirteen OPEC members and 11 non-OPEC countries, led by Russia, had agreed on November 30, 2016 to reduce their production by about 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) for six months beginning from January in an effort to drain a glut of crude that held down prices for over two years.


Member countries at the meeting agreed to exempt Iran, Libya and Nigeria from the deal while Nigeria got the exemption because of the production challenges caused by militant attacks on the country’s oil facilities.


The Jollof Wars


Peeeee! The CNN domiciled on air personality and business analyst who continues to make waves long after his visit to Nigeria ended last week. This was after the worst diplomatic faux pas of the decade took place and our own Information Minister scored an own goal against us.

It is not entirely clear what Quest’s rather boisterous visit to Nigeria was about. While an international source had put it down to a cyber security forum held by a transnational in Lagos, he has been up to anything but.


National importance Nor does it matter anymore as Quest has stirred the hornet ‘s nest on a matter of far greater importance: Jollof rice. Once considered an issue bordering on the ridiculous, it is suddenly a matter of pressing national importance to conclude the Jollof wars once and for all – and who better to moderate the finale than  a fellow who ambles round the world, trying to figure out how food- and various other things- affect the economy.
