Probably the best banker in the world - Sanusi Lamido Sanusi

I noticed an interview on TV the other day and heard a Central Bank Governor defend his position on the issue of Naira devaluation, I was impressed, that person could have  been a leader in any country, that person is Sanusi Lamido Sanusi , Central bank governor for Nigeria.


Sanusi was born on July 31, 1961. His father was a Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the 1960s and his grandfather was Emir of Kano and Islamic Scholar, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi.

Sanusi graduated from King’s College, Lagos in 1977 and studied at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria earning a BSc in Economics in 1981. He obtained an MSc in Economics in 1983, and then taught economics at ABU from 1983 to 1985.--wikipedia

He started his banking career in 1985 and in 2009 got the appointment as Central Bank Governor of Nigeria.

He recently won the award  of  the Global Central Bank Governor of the Year 2011 from The Banker Magazine  in London.

 Dedicated the award to President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, who appointed him on June 4, 2009,offered to share the award with staff of the CBN and acknowledged the support of President Goodluck Jonathan.


He has won many awards so far and will continue to do so .

The only people who can ensure a peaceful nation are US - As I said in Uyo just yesterday my ambition is important to me but is not worth the blood of even one Nigerian. Come to and continue the conversation we began here. 


3. All Nigerians - in Bauchi, Jos, Ilorin, Minna, Port Harcourt, Owerri, Ibadan, Kaduna, Lafia and everywhere in this great indivisible nation - must come together to contribute ideas on how we can create jobs for our youths, ensure that no Nigerian child goes to bed hungry, develop our country together and build a greater union. I will listen carefully to your ideas for how to bring Nigeria to a more secure and prosperous future specifically at Tell me what you think the government should be doing to make your life easier.

Transcorp Hilton Hotel Abuja , Please Support the local economy

At a time when countries /companies are making serious efforts to cut back on expenses, re invest in local economies and boost local employment, "buying local " , it seems like always in Nigeria, the opposite effect is taking place.


Zamani Farms in Jos, have been around for a number of years, they provide employment for a lot of people, deliver fruits and vegetables direct to your door in Abuja upon request once a week, and like any organized establishment these days  they send weekly updates via email to customers just to let them know what's happening on the farm etc you start to get a personal connection.


We'll this week, we hear that Transcorp hilton Abuja who they have been supplying for over a decade, have suddenly changed their policy and now want to import their fruits and vegetables from Germany.

Read this section of the  email update from Norma at Zamani:

"We had another setback recently when we were informed that the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, where we have been delivering vegetables for about 10 years, have decided to import all of their herbs and many vegetables from Germany rather than getting them from local suppliers! With policies like this, condoned by government, it will be impossible for small producers in Nigeria to develop agricultural, or indeed any kind of, production. Or maybe it is just that we are following the wrong business plan. Maybe we should focus instead on exporting our herbs to Europe, so that they can then be re-imported back to Nigeria at five times the price. Whatever has happened to the concerns for carbon footprint, environmental impact and the "locavore" movement (sourcing food ingredients as locally as possible) that is gaining ground all over the world, except, evidently, in Nigeria? It looks like we are moving backward rather than forward."

I just find these kinds of developments depressing, politicians, government officials, businessmen , expatriates all sorts of people patronize the Hilton, it is still one of the main hotels in Abuja.

Why support this hotel if suddenly they are at the forefront of reversing development in the same country that is providing you with these huge profits.

When do we stop as a nation and start to consider these little everyday actions that further push us backwards.

Transcorp Hilton may have their reasons and honestly they are free to respond...

I have no shares in Zamani and frankly wouldn't care where Transcorp Hilton decided to source their products, for me the point is MAKE IT LOCAL!

The Hilton is not everyone's cup of tea and frankly in Nigeria you would have to be of a certain financial class to even be seen there but this is exactly the problem, Just like looting the country's wealth and then stashing it overseas, developing someplace else, running outside the country for any medical assistance when in the 1st instance you could have developed your own at home.

This policy is wrong! And I would advise anyone (especially government) to avoid supporting this organization until they at least rethink this detrimental new policy.
