Ghana is biggest gainer from Nigeria's unseriousness

Nigeria News Update
Issue #15 • View online
Dear MyNigeria reader,
This week was adventurous and laced with so many low points for the country. It all began with hullabaloo that accompanied the President’s trip to the UK; then the strike by medical and judicial service workers; the usual conflict between the Eastern Security Network (ESN) and governors within the region; the news that social media giant, Twitter, was setting up its head office in Accra, Ghana’s capital; and finally the war of words between Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki and Minister of Finance, Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed.
The most upsetting for Nigerians obviously was the announcement that Twitter was setting up its Africa office in Ghana’s capital, Accra. While Nigerians reacted angrily, the social media giant said the choice of Ghana as its first Africa office was becauseGhana is a supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the open internet, of which Twitter is also an advocate.”
The war of words between Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki and Minister of Finance, Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed is also heating up as the governor openly accused the Federal Government of printing N60bn to augment March allocation to States.
We are eleven days into Ramadan fasting. On behalf of the team, we wish our Muslim readers a Happy Ramadan.
Our best wishes for a positive week ahead. Please send any comments, suggestions, criticisms, ideas, news, and features to Follow us on all social media platforms at @themynigeria for updates throughout the day. You can also download the MyNigeria App from Google Playstore.
