President Tinubu needs to appoint a minister of state for basic consumer goods manufacturing with a mandate to oversee the mass-production of basic food and household items to combat inflation

Ayo Akinfe

[1] Like every other economy in the world, Nigeria lives at the mercy of supply and demand fundamentals. We are thus particularly vulnerable to inflation as with a population of 200m, there is always going to be a massive demand for consumer goods

I am surprised that not one state government in Nigeria has invested in a moi-moi pouch manufacturing facility using these leaves

Ayo Akinfe

[1] Nigerians erroneously believe that the main cause of all their problems is corruption. Well, I can tell them now, that all our problems as a nation stem from the fact that we are not productive enough

[2] Our productivity is so low due to a combination of intellectual laziness, sheer incompetence, vanity, a preference for ostentation, an over-dependence on the government and a general lack of initiative among the populace

Maybe the solution to our current energy crisis is for our billionaire pastorprueners to pool their resources and buy the NNPC converting it into the Anointing Oil Petroleum Company to augment the work of the Dangote Refinery

Ayo Akinfe

[1] Nigeria’s current inflation crisis has its roots in the scarcity of fuel. It is the high cost of petrol and diesel that created the current set of economic woes in the country and until we resolve that matter, the prices of essential food items in particular, will not go down

As we celebrate May Day, Nigeria’a National Assembly should use the occasion to pass a bill introducing unprecedented workers rights as the Paris Commune did in 1871

Ayo Akinfe

[1] First and foremost, Nigerian labour unions are demanding a minimum monthly wage of N1m, which is about $710. I do not think that sum is excessive and believe a law authorising it should be passed today

[2] We then need to introduce anti-inflationary measure to protect this pay rise as we do not want any gains wiped out. I think the bank on spraying helps and the government should also look to reduce the amount of cash in circulation
