Driving Success: Strategies and Policies for Capital-Intensive Projects in Nigeria

Undertaking capital-intensive projects in Nigeria, particularly in Lagos, comes with a myriad of challenges that can impede progress and success. Aliko Dangote, founder of the Dangote Group, has firsthand experience with these obstacles. His $19 billion refinery project in Lagos faced repeated sabotage attempts from local and international criminal organisations, which he described as a "mafia." This scenario underscores the broader difficulties encountered in executing large-scale projects in Nigeria. These challenges encompass economic conditions, legal and regulatory hurdles, political factors, operational difficulties, and security concerns. To navigate these obstacles effectively, it is essential to implement a robust risk management strategy,

Dangote refinery overcomes ‘Oil Mafia’ sabotage attempts

In a revealing account at the recent Afreximbank Annual Meetings, Aliko Dangote, Africa’s wealthiest individual and founder of Dangote Group, shared a harrowing tale of resilience against sabotage attempts by local and international criminal entities on his ambitious $19 billion refinery project. Dangote described these entities as an “oil mafia,” which he suggests have vested interests in hindering the progress of Africa’s largest oil refinery. Despite these challenges, Dangote remained steadfast, navigating through the murky waters of corporate sabotage to ensure the continuation of a project that promises to reshape Nigeria’s energy sector. The refinery, located in Lagos, is not just an

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of Nigeria has issued a stark warning to investors regarding the burgeoning trend of meme coins, specifically citing the $Davido coin, which has recently gained media attention due to its association with the renowned Nigerian artist David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido.

The Role of Worldreader in achieving SDG 4 – Inclusive, Equitable and Quality Education: The East African Perspective

The Role of Libraries in realising SDG 4 – Inclusive, Equitable and Quality Education: The West African Perspective

By Nkem Osuigwe Libraries exist within the formal and informal sectors of the learning ecosystem. They are very important to learning in schools and in the different communities where they live all over Africa. They are critical for achieving an inclusive, equitable, and quality education where no one is left behind including those who are in employment and cannot attend school full-time and/or are taking online courses.

When Rantiade Evon Benson-Idahosa was growing up, she must have thought that her life was meant for the spiritual path because she was the daughter of the famous Archbishop Benson Idahosa and his equally influential wife Archbishop Margaret Benson Idahosa. However, things took another turn, and she became a lawyer of no mean repute in addition to being an advocate for women and girls. Ranti’s upbringing involved powerful presence and instructions from her mother and father. In one moment of introspection, Ranti said: “I grew up with two amazing parents. Many people think our father was always casting out demons and

Blessing for Helpers of the Helpless

The natural tendency that all human beings have is to be selfish and unconcerned about the plight of those who are less fortunate than them. This tendency is responsible for most of the problems we are facing in the world today, including our dear nation, Nigeria. Today is our 63rd independence anniversary, but how many people are rejoicing? This is not a new phenomenon; it has been like this for several decades now. The only people who appear to be celebrating are the leaders and politicians who have cornered a substantial part of the nation’s wealth, leaving the crumbs for
