Nigerians using charcoal stoves as kerosene prices surge

Residents in Enugu State have been seen using charcoal stoves as kerosene is now being sold between ₦1,350 and ₦1,600 per litre.

Crossing out Rickey Lumpkin’s name, Grace Nwaokobia is now the new titleholder of such a feat, bringing the visitation of 2023 presidential candidate Peter Obi to her home as he congratulated her on the impressive feat.

Dangote

Refinery owners have declared their support of Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote, who revealed that there is indeed an oil mafia in the country.

Dangote announced that an oil mafia aims to prevent companies from refining crude oil for petrol and other petroleum products. The other refinery owners spoke up about the issue, claiming they have been trying to raise the same alarm for a long time but received no feedback.

“Well, I knew that there would be a fight. But I didn’t know that the mafia in oil is stronger than the mafia in drugs. I can tell you that. Yes, it’s a fact. They tried all sorts to stop me,” Dangote revealed.

Australia, Canada, Germany, the UK, and the US offer care worker visas to Nigerians and others

Six Western countries have opened their arms to accepting care workers to their countries, quickly granting visas to Nigerians and others found eligible to take on the vacant roles.
