If Nigeria Cannot Be Restructured, Let It Disintegrate’- Fani Kayode Says

A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that if Nigeria cannot be restructured, let it disintegrate into smaller independent entities.Fani-Kayode said this in reaction to the National Assembly’s rejection of the proposal to devolve more constitutional powers from the centre to the states which would have kicked-off the process of restructuring Nigeria in earnest.

He urged Nigerians to understand that restructuringthe country can never be achieved through the 1999constitution or the current National Assembly.
According to him, the system was rigged and designed to protect and preserve itself, adding that and the core north effectively had a power of veto in the National Assembly which it will always exercise in order to block any form of restructuring.

Fani-Kayode wrote on his Facebook page: “For those commentators in this forum who have never participated in or understand Nigerian politics but who tend to speak and act as if they are the only ones that are sincere about restructuring I have the following to say.

“I hope you have learnt a lesson or two from the fact that during the constitutional review exercise that took place in the last few days the Senate has refused to devolve power from the centre and initiate the process for genuine restructuring in our country.

“These are the hard facts, hidden obstacles and bitter realities about the struggle that some of us that are in the field have been facing and complaining about for the last 25 years!

“From henceforth let it be clearly understood by all, including those that desire restructuring but who have never participated in Nigerian politics, that we can never achieve it through the existing constitutional structure or the National Assembly.

“This is because the system is rigged and designed to protect and preserve itself and because the core north effectively has a power of veto in the NationalAssembly which it will always exercise in order to block any form of restructuring. It is this point that people like Nnamdi Kanu and other ethnic nationalist leaders came to appreciate long ago and it explains their ‘hardline’ posture on these issues.

“The bottom line is as follows: restructuring will notbe given to us freely or on a platter of gold. “It must be taken and if necessary it must be taken by force.

“Finally mark this: if it does not eventually come then I say let us cease to be one nation.“I would rather live as a free man in an independent Oduduwa Republic than continue to live and die as a slave in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Mrs Kush: Maths for Food Business

Mrs Kush: Maths for Food Business

I have decided to call it Maths for food business rather than Finance or Accounting, because I am not an accountant and I do not have a finance background.

Before we start, I will say this, I AM IN BUSINESS TO MAKE MONEY! I will assume that is the same for you too. Never do a job that is not profitable for the sake of “exposure”. I’m not saying you can’t if you feel so inclined for reasons best known to you but make sure exposure is not one of them.
Remember when you wanted to patch a hole in your fence and you begged the bricklayer on your street to help you “manage” 3K with promises of bigger and better projects? How far? Have you called him to build a mansion yet? Don’t worry you’re not a bad person, we all do it. Remember this, if you accept prices below what is profitable for you, you will have to cut corners to make ends meet. When you do, the client will not remember they paid you less, they will only remember that your service sucked.
Do not buy in bulk
Hunh? Yes! Food is perishable especially fresh food. To minimise the cost associated with spoilage buy only what you need when you need it. The exception to the rule are dry goods such as Rice, Garri or Oil e.t.c even then, you need to think about cash flow. Only buy in bulk if it will not affect your cash flow.
Imagine you bought 10 bags of rice because it was discounted even though there wasn’t an immediate need. A week after the “huge savings”, your oven breaks down and needs to be replaced. If you need your oven to make money daily, it’s not a nice position to be in. To be a responsible business person, you need to ensure you have cash flow to meet planned and unplanned expenses. Not all savings are profitable.

Supermarkets Can Be Good for Commercial Purchases 
Not every time Mile 12 or Lagos Island – especially if the numbers are small. During the last tomato crises, I got my fresh tomatoes from supermarkets. It’s not like I didn’t find in the market, but the prices were ridiculous in comparison. You will never find buy one get on free in an open market either. Supermarkets do this often (Please check expiry dates, sometimes it’s because goods are close to expiry not because they are being nice). Supermarkets also discourage your staff from making “profit” because they can’t negotiate with the cashiers to doctor receipts.

Here’s a practical example:
Based on today’s prices that I checked on the internet, we will do the costing for Jollof Rice & Chicken for 25 people. As a rule of thumb for small portions I make between 150g – 200g of rice per person.
Rice: 200g pp x 25 people = 5000g or 5kg – N2500
Chicken: 1 kg of Chicken is about 4 decent sized laps. For 25 people, I need 7 kg – (28 pieces)
1 kg of Chicken is now N1,400 (Lord save us!); N1400 x 7 = N9800
Fuel (Gas/Kerosene/firewood): Gas costs me 4k per cylinder and lasts me a month when I’m not doing a lot of cooking. For events, it can be gone in a day or two. For this example, I will calculate based on my domestic usage tariff; 4000/30 days = N133. Since I am making 2 different items, I cost twice. N133 x 2 = N266
Cook – N5000 (Imagine you are out of town and needed to pay a trusted cook to fulfil the order)
Rental of kitchen space If you’re in a commercial premises, calculate your annual rent and divide by the number of days you work in a year. If it is a home kitchen, decide how much your kitchen is worth for a day rate and charge it. For this example, we will use a day rate of 5k.
Based on an annual rent of N500,000; working 5 days a week x 40 weeks in a year = 200 working days.
Day rate is N500,000 ÷ 200 working days = N2500.
Double it to cover the cost of utilities, diesel e.t.c and the depreciating value of your equipment like blender, cooker, pots, pans e.t.c. You can decide to be more thorough in calculating actual cost for utilities and equipment to get a more accurate figure.
Someone once said they thought it wasn’t fair to cost the day rate for each customer because they usually have more than one customer daily. My response was if you serve 50 people or 1 person daily, your quality of service should be the same. You should therefore cost in such a way that makes you sustainable even when business is slow.
Before we do the final calculation, what do you think a decent plate of Jollof Rice and Roast chicken should cost? N1,000, N500, N5,000?
Let’s see…
ItemHow you should costHow you probably cost
Rice25002500
Pepper Blend (tomatoes, onions e.t.c)15001500
Garnishing200I have some in the fridge
Tomato paste150150
Seasoning Cubes50I have some already
Curry, thyme, bay leaf200I have some already
Oil500500
Chicken98009800
Gas266I already have gas / I got it for free
Chicken seasoning300I have some at already
Disposable plates12501250
Serviette300I have some left over from my last event
Disposable forks500I have some left over from my last event
Cook5000I will cook myself, I don’t deserve to be paid
Transportation (Market runs & Delivery to clients)2000There’s fuel in my car, I also happen to own a filling station
Phone call allowance500I have credit on my phone, no shaking
Kitchen space5000My landlord is a nice man
Total CostN 30,016.00N 15,700.00
Cost per personN 1200.64N 628
Right of the back the total cost is 30K for 25 people. That’s an estimated N1200 per person without profit! If your costing is however like the 2nd column, half of your actual costs have gone to goodwill. What an angel you are!
If you’re wondering why ends are not meeting, this is it. You’re running a charity not a business. Imagine you decided to charge N1,000 per person you have lost 5K! Do that 10 times and you’re 50k in the hole. Is it not better to be sleeping and drinking Garri?
Some may argue with you that they can get cheaper rice at fast food places nowadays. To that your response should be the quantity and quality of your food is better (hopefully). You cannot compete with them anyway; they buy ingredients in truck loads and are held to less standards.
It’s up to you to decide what margins are suitable to make your food business profitable and add that to your cost. Sometimes you may get things cheaper and choose to pass on the savings to your client. That is fine, just make sure you do the maths properly.
Finally, don’t be afraid to lose a client especially if the price is not right, if you are consistent in quality and service, it’s only a matter of time before referrals start pouring in. Make sure you position yourself properly and take advantage of social media and other forms of low cost advertising to help you grow.
Love,
Mrs Kush.

Funding Through Equity or Debt Financing

July 14, 2017 0

234Finance: Funding Through Equity or Debt Financing

As an entrepreneur, there are many funding options to consider; and understanding how to finance your business is an important decision that can have major consequences. So your small business needs extra capital to execute a development project, should you take out a business loan or seek for funding from an investor?
Which is the better option – debt or equity?
Debt financing entails borrowing money from a lender that you’ll eventually pay back with interest. If you have ever taken a loan, you’ve financed something with debt. Armed with a business loan, you’re in control of how that extra capital gets spent. Some lenders impose certain restrictions but in most cases, what you’re financing is completely up to you. Debt financing can be flexible. There are different types of business loans, which vary based on how much money you will get and how long you will make repayments for.
Meanwhile, depending on your credit score and financials, it can be tough to qualify for the loan you want. If you fail to repay the loan, the lender could seize your business’ assets.
Equity financing embroils trading ownership of your business to angel investors or venture capitalists, in return for their capital. Equity is especially important for certain industries and businesses such as tech start-ups and companies with global aspirations. Almost $60 billion in venture capital was invested in the United States in 2015.
You don’t have to pay interest on the capital you raise, so there’s no need to put your business’s profits into debt repayments. This implies you’ve got more cash available to grow your business. With the right investors, you can get great experience, wisdom, industry connections and much more. These relationships can last you a very long time.
However, it takes a long time, especially when compared to some of the fastest debt financing options out there. Equity financing means you will have to give away ownership of your business and also some of your decision-making power. You will also have to consult with the investors over the strategic direction of your company. In some extreme cases, you may be forced to cash out and abandon your own business.
How do you know which of these options best suits your business? If you require funds urgently, then debt financing is the way to go. Meanwhile, equity financing involves finding the right investors, pitching your business, drawing up the legal documents and more. If you are searching for a small amount of capital, then debt financing is the better choice. Equity financing rarely comes in small amounts, but you could get business loans for as little as $5,000 USD or less.
However, if you need more than just money, equity is probably for you. Debt financing is transactional. You borrow, and then you pay back what you owe plus interest. Equity will give you access to an investor’s knowledge, contacts and expertise. You get to establish a relationship that could have a positive effect on your business, as long as you’ve partnered with the right people. If what you want is more cash in your bank account, then it might be best not to get involved with investors.
Finding the right kind of financing is a big deal, and it can have a deep and lasting effect on how your business operations and sustenance.

Peppers, Celery, Broccoli! These Healthy Foods Will Boost Your Libido

Peppers, Celery, Broccoli! These Healthy Foods Will Boost Your Libido

Scented candles and sexy underwear are a great way to kick up things in the bedroom, but sometimes, they don’t just cut it. Even when you include creamy chocolates and red wine- which are veritable sex boosters, you sometimes still find yourself with dipping libido.

Sure, factors such as dieting, hormonal shifts, drugs, insomnia, and low self-esteem can negatively affect libido, but in addition to addressing these underlying issues, adding a few healthy foods into your diet can also revive your libido and rev up your sex life while also ensuring you stay in good physical shape.
Lettuce
A number of Nigerian only eat this in burgers or salads as they consider it one of the boring greens. However, lettuce is a huge libido booster In fact, the ancient Egyptians used lettuce as an aphrodisiac around 2000 B.C. It is even a phallic symbol that symbolizes the celebrated food of the Egyptian god of fertility, Min (always pictured with an erect penis in wall paintings and reliefs). The green was believed to have helped the god “perform the sexual act untiringly.” Generally, lettuce contains opiates that activate sex hormones. It also is a source of iron and as such fight against some of the negative effects of low iron levels including low sexual desire, vaginal dryness and ability to have an orgasm.

Avocados
The benefits of Avacado are bounteous! In addition to their antioxidant properties, thanks to the vitamin E content (which is also often called the “sex vitamin”), they also high levels of folic acid which helps metabolize proteins, thus giving you more energy for performance; libido-boosting Vitamin B6 which accelerates male hormone production and reduces heart disease – a sure cause of erectile dysfunction due to artery damage; and potassium which regulates a woman’s thyroid gland which also affect the woman’s libido. Even more, they are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats. You can eat them as a fruit, blend them into a smoothie, spreads and ice creams or include the in salads.

Broccoli
Referred to as “kabejin brokoli’ by the Hausa, Broccoli is not some green you have to get from a faraway land. Most people ignore it as they think of it as some foreign vegetable, but it is right here in Nigeria and you can get at most vegetable markets and stores. Broccoli is great for boosting sex drive, as it has a high content of vitamin C which helps in blood circulation. It has also been linked to improved libido. Broccoli particularly works more for men, as it also contains indole-3-carbinol known for lessening oestrogen levels, giving the male libido the needed boost. You can eat it raw, steamed or cooked…whichever way, it is a great addition to your sex diet.

Peppers
Could this be the reason behind the stereotype of a certain Nigerian tribe being promiscuous? Besides being hot on the tongue, peppers/chilis turn up the hit on your libido too! They contain a compound called Capsaicin which increases heart rate and dilates blood vessels ensuring that blood flows to all the essential areas; Also, releases endorphins which in turn pumps up your libido. Apparently, the hotter the pepper, the better for your sex drive. Bear in mind, however, that you have to ingest the pepper to do the job…do not be tempted to sprinkle pepper on your lover for a quick result, you will end up having the worst experience ever. Also, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after eating foods with pepper, before touching sensitive parts of the body.

Celery
Celery is not a commonly consumed vegetable, however it works wonders for your health and sex life (especially if you are a guy). Raw celery contains aldosterone, an odourless hormone which increases the pheromone levels in a man, making him more attractive to the woman and turning her on. Once the vegetable is consumed, the hormone is released through the sweat glands …and before you know it, the lady is all over you!

Ladies are not left behind either as celery also it is high in monounsaturated fats, which increases dopamine – known for boosting female sexual pleasure. Again, celery freshens the breath, which is a plus. Bad breath can be a deal breaker for so many. The good thing about celery is that you don’t have to cook it or fuss over preparations. It is best eaten raw, just wash it and crunch away.

Tips For a Successful Marriage

July 14, 2017 0

Eniola Olaosebikan: Tips For a Successful Marriage

My husband must be tall, dark and handsome. Anything apart from that is a big NO. He must be rich too. Many women make these lists before marriage. Thanks to fairy tales that have brainwashed us by telling us the couples lived happily ever after- just like that. To some extent, we unconsciously have been made to believe that all that matters is physical attraction in addition to status off some sort. Since princes are not that common, neither are castles, we seem to have settled on the fact that “he has to be rich”, “he has to be handsome” – all to fit into this box.

Have you ever really wondered what marriage is all about? I mean a great marriage. Have you ever wondered if it was all about beauty, money, fame, muscles and all? If yes, then why do you think marriages, especially celebrity marriages fail? Or don’t you think most of their spouses are cute, sexy, beautiful and all that? Why do you think marriages fail?
If you ask me, I would say marriages fail for so many reasons; both general reasons and specific reasons ‘tailor made’ for people in certain situations. Here are some foundational reasons why marriages fail:
Individuals involved focus solely on physical matters
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad to know what you want physically and go for it; not bad at all: but it shouldn’t be all there is about your choice. When a guy comes to ask you out, his physical attributes and overall bank account should never be the sole reason you consider him, even though to certain extent- it matters. It should be more of what the guy has to offer you deep down. Things like: his IQ, his ability to handle crisis. How angry does he get? How giving and sacrificial can he be? What are his beliefs about women? Are they ‘species’ of the human race that stay only in the kitchen and use all their life and time to give birth and raise babies all they can? What does he think about a woman having a thriving career? What are his goals, passion and dreams in life, and how do you fit in? How well does he fit into yours too? These and many more are factors to consider before saying yes.

It’s high time we all stopped saying yes to proposals that shouldn’t have made it past ‘hi’, ‘hello’ just because of the giddy and seemingly exciting emotions felt. Not that those giddy emotions and butterfly flutters don’t count, but it would be great to know exactly what brings about them. Could it be the eateries and joints he takes you to on a regular basis, coupled with the movie nights and all? Or is it the quality discussions you have that makes you rest assured and proud that-this is my man!
In all, physical attraction is important, but it shouldn’t be all there is about saying yes to a proposal. Besides, what if in addition to the physical qualities you can’t seem to take your eyes off, he later turns out to be a wife beater, a woman wrapper or worse still- a serial killer? Pay more attention to his character and patterns, as opposed to his physical attributes alone.
Childish ideas people have about marriage
For teens and adolescents, especially those with religious backgrounds, one of the major things they look forward to in marriage is sex – great sex. Now is it bad to aspire to a great sex in marriage? No; but that must never be all your mind is focused on.

I remember talking to a married friend of mine and something he said struck me (Not that I’ve not always thought about it or desired it in my marriage myself, but the way he said it struck me and filled me with the reality and sense of it). He said one of the main reasons why he loves his wife is that they can be on lock down without sex being the major/only reason, and they both would be fine. Each person is busy pursuing their career in the privacy of their togetherness, without feeling lost and lonely. This brings me to the next point.
People expect marriage to make them happy!
This is one of the reasons many young people get married. They marry because they want to escape from their own world of loneliness and boredom which they created. For real? Who else is going to arrange your world the way it should be? Your spouse? People forget to know that the source of true and real happiness is that that springs forth from within. A feeling that comes out of self-awareness and self-acceptance which no one else can give to you.

The highest a man can do for you is affirm you, tell you you are beautiful and all that, but the best you can do for yourself is to indeed know you are all that, without expecting to hear it from anybody to feel validated.
The truth is nobody can validate you as much as you; and even if they do, you would have to be going back to them to refill you each time your cup runs dry.

The other truth is: people might love you, but when your whole life seems to revolve around them validating you always, eventually they would get tired of you and run for their dear lives. This is because nobody can love you like you. Nobody can validate you like you, and at that, nobody can really make you see worth and value in yourself like you.
Love yourself before getting married; don’t get into marriage expecting what should have been self-love from your spouse. The poor guy also has his own struggles and he is looking for someone to relief him of it too. Adding your own to his, might never be what he’ll most readily do.
People have no idea of self or purpose
A lot of people pay little attention to their purpose early in life. All they all go after is societal standards- getting rich, married and settled with a good job (which again is all good but not all there is about life). Very little time, if any, is spent thinking: what am I here on earth for? What is my passion? What exactly am I good at? Who do I want to be? etc. They marry based on are the giddy emotions they feel. Then suddenly, later in life when their eyes become open, they realize they married the wrong spouse: a spouse who would not readily support their dream when later in life they discover it.

Can you imagine discovering later in life that you want to be a pastor and you are married to an imam? Or that you want to be a medical doctor and you are married to someone who wouldn’t for a day let you out of his sight even at points where you have to study? Or someone who wouldn’t eat any other food other than the one prepared by you, and you discovered you want to be a petrochemical engineer whose work would involve staying off and on rigs? He can’t even handle employing a professional chef, because everything has to be through your very hands and it has to be fresh. He also does not eat freezer food! Can you imagine? That’s why to a large extent, it’s good to have an idea of who you are, so you would have an idea of who to take with you on your journey, and also for your spouse to know who he is, so together you can know if you are compatible dream wise.
There are many more foundational reasons marriages fail, but for time sake, it’ll be good to stop here. So dear sis, before you say yes to that shiny twenty-four carat thing- think on these things and make sure he’s not only tall, dark, handsome and rich (although that could score him a point too, but definitely not all the major points). Marry for where you are going, and not necessarily where you are at the moment.
…Till I come your way again, do have a great day and week ahead. *Hugs and kisses*

NCC allays fears of operation disruption, job loss in Etisalat Nigeria

Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), has vowed to protect the company from possible collapse in its operations. The Commission allayed the fears during the 80th edition of Telecom Consumer Parliament, TCP held at Yar’ Adua Centre, Abuja.
Prof. Umar Dambatta, executive vice chairman of the Commission, gave the assurance while delivering his opening address at the event.
Prof. Dambatta, who was represented by Mr. Sunday Dare, Executive Commissioner, Stakeholder Management, said the Commission wasn’t unaware of the current challenge facing Etisalat Nigeria following the recent report about its mother company withdrawal from Nigerian market but had waded into the matter to save the jobs of the staff and interest of the 21 million subscribers at stake.
The EVC said though the Commission never anticipated the crisis would befall Etisalat, it was resolute in ensuring that it does not jeopardize the interest of the consumers.
