ODE TO AN AFRICAN INVENTION
I speak of a voice that will never be silenced. The Invention patented in Africa. As bloody as the red ocean only a few like him can reach the ocean’s blue. Call on Swamp Dwellers that King Baabu is a year older. Death and the King’s Horseman have got nothing on him. The Lion and the Jewel of Abeokuta: the Akinlatun of Egbaland. Let my music serenade he that dances shoki with the Irumoles In the Forest of a thousand Daemons. Before the literary Blackout, came Kongi's Harvest. He with a few other Madmen and Specialists reigned and merried in The Bacchae of Euripides.
_
He that craves The Scourge of Hyacinths.
All hail King Baabu! Where are The Interpreters? Wole is about to speak English. In this Season of Anomy, Wole reinforces heights excellence can take one despite the colour of one’s skin. During the Years of my Childhood: the Penkelemes Years, I grew up reading Soyinka. I draw all inspirations from him. Although I’m betrothed to the Law, literature is my first and only true love. All I wish for is a Telephone Conversation with Wole Soyinka. I have a lot to speak to him about: our culture in Transition; the poetics of the pseudo-Transition; the credo of being and nothingness; and the burden of memory.
_
I speak of an omnibus squelching Iroko and his literary genius. I speak of that which not only my ears have heard and my eyes have seen but my faculties acknowledge. I speak of the silence that greets his ethereal perspicacity and recherché ratiocination. I speak of his spectroscopic flight of fancy. I speak of blackness at its peak reaching to the heights which not one of us can pass off for an easy feat. My belated birthday wishes go to @wolesoyinka

Growing, up my experiences humbled me astronomically. Since I was born, I have never paid up to N20,000 of school fees. My secondary school did not have furniture. Coz of OAU’s demonic calendar, I spent 6 years doing a five-year qualifying Law degree. I commute 3-5hrs daily from Surulere to V.I in public transport for my prerequisite graduate internships with firms like PwC, AFC, Olaniwun, KPMG among others. Through all these, one thought is always constant in my head, “it may be too late now to change how things have been but it’s never to late to change how things will become.” Practise impending success so you will be prepared when an opportunity surfaces. Whitney Young Jr. once poignantly quipped, “it’s better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.” #Mondaymotivation

The long-awaited initial public offering (IPO) of MTN Nigeria Limited will eventually happen sometime next month, according to a source familiar with the situation.
_
The August date follows the eventual permission granted the company by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to go ahead with the listing of its shares on the Nigerian bourse.
_
Last month, an MTN spokesperson debunked rumours that MTN had ever hinted at issuing as much as $500 million-valued shares during the IPO.
_
The company may list 20 billion shares after a 1 for 5 share split, after which it will proceed to pick the IPO price through book building. MTN Nigeria has a current valuation of $5.2 billion, going by its current over the counter price of $13, the nominal value of the shares will also be split from ₦1 to 2 kobo.

The constant reshuffling of management at Lafarge Holcim has been blamed on the persistent losses recorded by the cement manufacturer in places like Nigeria, Algeria and Egypt.
_
Lafarge Holcim’s Chief Executive Officer, Jan Jenisch, stated this yesterday (July 4th) in Zurich while announcing the appointment of Miljan Gutovic as the new manager in charge of the company’s operations in Africa and the Middle East.
_
Note that Lafarge Africa has over the years faced stiff competition posed by Dangote Cement Plc, and this is reflected in their earnings. Take for instance, while Dangote Cement generated as much as ₦805 billion in revenue last year, Lafarge Africa Plc only generated ₦299 billion. Dangote Cement however made a profit after tax of ₦204 billion in 2017.

In the simplest terms, investment bankers help corporate clients and governments to raise money or capital, which could either be in form of equity or debt. For instance, if Dangote Cement is considering expanding its business to East Africa and it needs more money, it could raise money by issuing bonds. The investment bank does the market research and analysis, bond issuance, documentation and help sell the bonds for large fees.
_
Investment bankers also help in arranging equity financing. For instance, Citigroup and Stanbic IBTC Capital are helping MTN IPO on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. Their roles as investment bank include preparing the usually voluminous prospectus (which is the document detailing the shares to be offered to the public), assisting with regulatory compliance with the SEC and most importantly they help with pricing the shares so that it is not too high or too low. The difference between investment banks and private equity firms is that while Investment banks are the sellers, private equity firms are the buyers. PE firms are custodians of ready money looking for investments.
_
Investment bankers also with Mergers &Acquisition (M&A) deals. To acquire another company, it is important to know its valuation to be able to properly price it. The valuation and pricing are done by investment bankers. They also help in structuring the whole deal. Investment banks charge exorbitant fees. For raising debt or equity, investment banks charge up to $200m or more

The world's richest person now has a fortune of $142 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

And the amount he's made in 2018 alone would put him at number 15 on our list, ahead of any member of the Walmart family.

"With the shift of the century, client service today has grown over the traditional legal services provided by law firms and legal practitioners in time past. The sophisticated and increasingly proactive demands of clients for commercially aware counsel and law firms in business processes is the order of the day. Clients want to know that you know what their industry is, where it's been and where it's going. In today's competitive legal market therefore, understanding the business environment and the global best practices in service delivery is at the heart of firms seeing profit growth today. In the same wise, Law firms will usually be looking for candidates who have some appreciation of commerciality and a great general knowledge of what is going on in the business world."

What is a Direct Debit Mandate?
_________________________
A Direct Debit Mandate is also known as Direct Debit Instruction. It is an authorisation from you to your bank to collect future payments as soon as they come in.
___________________________

The details of your DDI are standardized. For instance, you can instruct your bank to automatically deduct N10,000 out of your N30,000 monthly income as soon as it is received. You can specify a fixed period for which this money will be deducted. E.g. Deduct for 6months or 1 year or more.
____________________________
HOW IT WORKS
1. Go to your bank

2 Request a DDI Form

3. State the details of the deductions
4. Open a new account in the same bank for the collection of the deducted funds. ( If you have a separate account in the same bank you may not have to open another one)
_____________________________
NB: You can cancel your DDI by simply obtaining a DDI cancellation form.
