From Paris to Abuja: Federal Government To Issue Pilot Sovereign Green Bond During Week Of December 18

The Debt Management Office, Federal Ministry of Finance and the Federal Ministry of Environment will host a Green Bond Investor forum in Abuja and Lagos respectively as part of its launch of the Federal Government Sovereign Green Bonds program in Nigeria.

In preparation to the issuance, the Federal Government of Nigeria will issue the first tranche of bonds from this program during the week of 18th of December 2017 as part of its effort to align with the global objective of expanding the market for climate finance. This is in keeping with President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to support Nigeria’s transition towards a low carbon, green economy.

Speaking in Paris, France at the One Planet Summit, hosted by President Emmanuel Macron, President Muhammadu Buhari said that for “Nigeria to respond effectively to climate change mitigation and adaptation challenges, critical mass of financial resources beyond what we can provide from our national resources will be required.” On steps Nigeria has taken to meet its national goal in this respect, The President said the country “embraced the issuance of the green bond as an innovative and alternative source of project funding that would help reduce emissions and provide robust climate infrastructure, such as renewable energy, low carbon transport, water infrastructure and sustainable agriculture in line with the Paris Agreement”.

The Green Bond Investors Forum will be held on the 14th of December 2017 in Abuja and on the 15th of December 2017 in Lagos to sensitize stakeholders on the pilot issuance of the Green bond in Nigeria. Participants at the Investors Fora are expected from Pension Funds Administrators (PFAs), Federal Ministry of Finance, Inter-ministerial Committee on Climate Change; Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), Debt Management Office (DMO), Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) World Bank, Chapel Hill Denham, and other private sector representatives.

The Investors’ fora follows the publication of an assessment of Nigeria’s Green Bond by Moodys. Nigeria’s Green Bond has been assessed and categorized GB1 (Excellent). This will be the first time a green bond assessment has been assigned to a sovereign green bond in Africa by Moody’s  

Moody’s Senior Vice President, Rahul Ghosh said in a statement that; “In preparation for Africa’s maiden Sovereign Green Bond, the Government of Nigeria has put in place a comprehensive governance structure and framework that is aligned with the country’s domestic green bond guidelines and international best practices.”

The Honorable Minister for State, Ibrahim Usman Jibril said, ”Climate Change is real and business, government and the capital market need to work together to slow its effects. This pilot green bond, which we expect to be the first of many more, has developed the platform to address the nation’s target of reducing its emissions by 20% unconditionally and 45% conditionally by 2030”.

Green bonds have been the subject of increasing government, investor and media interest, driven by the prospect of matching large low?carbon investment requirements with the trillions of dollars in global bond markets held by institutional investors.

A Nigeria Sovereign Green Bond issuance marks the first sovereign green bond issuance in Africa, and the fourth globally.

Skye Bank, Six Others Awarded Platinum Prize As Top Donors Of Lagos Security Trust Fund

Skye Bank Plc., one of Nigeria’s leading retail commercial banks and six other companies have been commended and awarded platinum prize for committing huge resources in support of securing lives and property in Lagos State.

The top donor awards to Skye Bank and six organisations were part of the activities at the 11th Town Hall Meeting on Security with the Governor of Lagos which coincided with the 10th anniversary of Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF) which took place on Wednesday in the new Banquet Hall at the Governor’s Office in Ikeja, Lagos.

Handing over the award to the ‘Platinum 7’, at the well-attended meeting which had all stakeholders in security circles present, Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, commended the companies for partnering with the state government through LSSTF to secure lives and property in the state by committing huge resources to the fight against criminality in the megacity.

Ambode noted that “Security is the most expensive venture of government and the most important responsibility of government. Insecurity is capable of disrupting any worthwhile activity. It can reduce successes into ruins. We as a government and good citizens of our country understand that security is the bedrock of peaceful coexistence and we should be proud of what we are and what we have achieved together in the last decade”.

While pledging to commit more to the security of the state, Governor Ambode promised to acquire 30 brand new BMW power bikes before Christmas meant to scan and comb the metropolis and report to relevant agencies any development for swift action, among other far-reaching decisions that were the outcome of the meeting, among which is a planned security summit to hold in quarter 1 of 2018.

Commenting on the award, the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Skye Bank, Mr. Tokunbo Abiru, thanked the State Governor, LSSTF and other stakeholders for recognizing the efforts of the bank in combating crime in the state.

Abiru noted that, there can be no meaningful progress where the peace of the state is under security threat. He used the opportunity to reach out to well-meaning Lagosians and residents in the state, especially the business community, to join hands with “the rest of us who have demonstrated corporate citizenship by supporting the state to combat crime.”

The Skye Bank boss was ably represented by the directorate head, Lagos Business, Segun Opeke, who received the award from the state Governor.

Earlier, Chairman of the LSSTF, Mr. Hassan Oye-Odukale traced the history of the fund and commended the initiative and the transformation that it has had on crime fighting which according to him has become a model being copied by the federal, states and even other countries.

“Over the 10 year period, the Fund, which was the first of its kind, has become a source of succor to Lagosians and a shining example of an endearing Public Private Partnership in the country as a whole such that state Governments and even the federal government have sought to understudy the Fund to replicate it”

Executive Secretary and CEO of LSSTF, Dr. Abdul Razaq Balogun and the State Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi in their address, took participants down memory lane of how Lagos was before the establishment of the Fund, and current security situation in the state while commending personalities who ensured the success of the initiative, including erstwhile Skye Bank CEO, Kehinde Durosinmi-Etti and the Directorate Head, South, Dr. Ayodele Abina

LSSTF was established a decade ago to mobilise private sector funds to provide the needed financial muscle in the fight against robbery and other violent crimes in the state.

The six other companies are; Zenith Bank Plc; First Bank Plc; United Bank for Africa (UBA); Access Bank Plc; Dangote Group and MTN Foundation.

Skye Bank and the six other organisations honoured at the meeting are said to have committed over a quarter of a billion each over the last decade to the security trust fund.

PayU Nigeria Goes Bigger On Online Payments With PayU Receive

Businesses in Nigeria can securely request and receive payments directly from their customers without any hassles using PayU’s innovative and secure product called PayU Receive.

PayU Receive is a secure payment solution that facilitates business-to-business and business-to-consumer payments easily via email or SMS. It allows businesses to make use of PayU’s safe and secure payment services by allowing them to send payment requests via email or sms to their customers. Customers then have the flexibility of paying via their bank cards or their bank accounts.

This is a convenient way for businesses to receive payment as they simply need their customers’ email address or mobile phone numbers to which a payment link can be sent. They can also send payment reminders to their customers thereby increasing the efficiency of collections on overdue accounts.

“This payment solution aligns with PayU’s experience in over 16 markets globally, including Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Africa, where our technological solutions are changing the payment landscape.

“We believe PayU Receive is an innovative solution which further encourages cashless payments particularly to merchants that take frequent orders from customers. It allows them to accept prepayment of goods and services instead of accepting cash on delivery.” said Nwanguma. “PayU Receive is our response to numerous enquiries from merchants asking for a convenient, safe and secure way to receive electronic payments from customers without having a website or the need for integration.”

ActionAid Plans National Dialogue On Corruption

ActionAid Nigeria, a national non-governmental organisation and affiliate of ActionAid International says it plans to hold a National Dialogue on Corruption, even as it is set to unveil a new anti-corruption programme in Nigeria next week.

In a statement by the Communications Coordinator of the organisation, Nihinlola Ayanda, Friday, in Abuja, ActionAid Nigeria said the new programme is called ‘Strengthening Citizens Resistance Against Prevalence of Corruption- SCRAP-C.’

According to him, SCRAP-C will seek to look at the fight against corruption “through social norm lenses and complement the law and enforcement approach in Nigeria.”

“The SCRAP-C project is a five-year project supported by the Department for International Development (DfID)’s Anti-Corruption in Nigeria (ACORN) programme. It is managed by a consortium of three national organisations – ActionAid Nigeria (AAN), Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), and Centre for Communication Production in Nigeria (CCPN) led by ActionAid Nigeria. The project also has four implementing partners Centre for Citizens with disabilities (CCD), Women Advocates Research and Documentation Centre (WARDC), Youth Initiative for Advocacy Growth and Advancement (YIAGA), Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA) who are taking responsibility for communities and groups engagements across six strategic states (Akwa-Ibom, Bornu, Enugu, Kaduna, Kano/Jigawa, and Lagos), including the FCT.”

“The SCRAP-C is a research and citizens’ oriented project. It will employ social marketing tools, research, advocacy, citizens’ mobilisation, media engagements and capacity development to achieve programme result which in this case is the desired behavioural change against corruption. Therefore, it will be more practical and beneficial for Nigerians to key into this innovative project to seek for desired behavioural change against corruption.”

“It is designed to set the pace for citizens’ engagements. It is a holistic and inclusive anti-corruption effort, designed to take innovative and inclusive approaches in its engagement with citizens. We believe that the adopted approach of citizens’ ownership of the anti-corruption battle would promote and nurture the right attitudes of citizens to corruption.”

Giving a background to the project, ActionAid Nigeria Project Manager, Newton Otsemaye explains:

“It is a known fact that past and present governments have indicated interest and indeed made efforts to fight corruption through various programmes and policies. Some have further shown efforts to design legal and institutional frameworks to reduce corruption in Nigeria. In spite of all these, corruption still happens unabated.”

“While our policy makers and political drivers seem to be overwhelmed with the scourge of corruption, and how to address it with cutting-edge strategies, literatures have shown that one of the most likely reasons why past institutional, policy and legal frameworks experienced setbacks is because of the huge disconnect between the anti-corruption efforts and citizens’ participation.”

“For anti-corruption efforts in Nigeria to be more holistic and inclusive, it must go beyond the boundaries of law and enforcement or sanctions to the terrain of society, change in attitude and behaviour. Therefore, social norms seem to be the new window not because it is new or old, but because there is empirical evidence of a strong relationship between social norms and corruption. On this premise, we may suggest that the anti-corruption efforts could leverage on these empirical positions by either appealing to existing social norms or creating new ones, with a view to changing corrupt behavior in Nigeria.”

“The public dialogue on corruption and public presentation of the anti-corruption project- SCRAP-C will bring together participants from the government, private sector, the media, professional bodies, women groups, youth groups, academia, policy makers and enforcers, market associations, labour unions and people living with disabilities to participate.”

The event, with the theme: When the fight against corruption becomes ours; Changing perceptions, beliefs and mobilising people’s movement against corruption is expected to hold in Abuja on the 11th of December, 2017.

Facebook Unveils The Most Powerful Ways People Connected In 2017

Facebook has announced its 2017 Year in Review, highlighting the most powerful ways people came together on Facebook to support one another.

First, people came together to react and talk about important moments and events that happened around the world. These top three moments that people discussed globally in 2017 were:

International Women’s Day: This was the No. 1 most talked about moment in 2017, doubling from last year, with people around the world talking, sharing and posting in celebration of women and related issues.

Las Vegas Violence: This tragic incident drove conversation around the world, which in turn motivated more than 3,300 people to offer help to their community through our Crisis Response tools on Facebook.

Second, people came together to support one another in times of crisis. 2017 was a difficult year with natural disasters and violence around the world, but it was inspiring to see people help each other when they needed it most. The top three moments where people came to each other’s aid on Facebook were:

Earthquake in Mexico: The response to this crisis in late September drove the highest number of total interactions within Crisis Response on Facebook of the year, with millions of people marking themselves safe, offering help to their communities or donating to the cause.

Hurricane Harvey: In late August, the community rallied to help those in need by raising more than $20 million in the biggest fundraising effort for a single crisis in 2017 on Facebook.

Finally, people used Facebook to get together in person. The top two ways people connected through these offline moments by creating Events on Facebook were:

Women’s March on DC: On January 21, The Women’s March on DC brought over 500,000 people together through the largest Facebook event for a single cause in 2017.

Your Year In Review

Facebook also wants to create a Year In Review for you. Starting Wednesday, you may see a personalized video in your News Feed. This video includes moments from this past year that you’ve shared or been tagged in, and compiles them in a short video that can be edited and shared. You can access your video by visiting facebook.com/yearinreview.

Methodology

The top moments of this year’s Year In Review were determined by gathering a list of the top keywords by volume mentioned in a single day on Facebook between January 1st and November 1st, 2017. To identify which topics were unique to 2017, Facebook compared these keywords to the previous year’s maximum single-day volume.

This means that keywords such as Mother’s Day and Halloween, which typically represent the top moments every year, do not repeatedly appear at the top of the list.

The Photo Community: The Drivers of #TheUntoldStoriesOfTheNorthEast Online Campaign

The Northeast has been plagued by the Boko Haram crisis, with Borno State being the most affected – crippling social and economic activities in the state. Despite the gradual return of peace and stability in the region, the positive stories about improved social and economic activities, and the resilience of residents rarely makes news.

To alter the negative narratives and perceptions about the Northeast as a gloomy and haunted region, devoid of socio-economic activities and opportunities, a social media photo campaign was launched on the 13th of October 2017. The project is an initiative to counter violent extremism through the use of social media led by 30 young photographers from Borno State.

30 youths who are passionate about photography in Maiduguri were selected and trained in the art of photography. Through the use of social media, they are carrying out an online CVE photo campaign that aims to alter the negative narratives and promote positive narratives about the resilience of the people recovering from insurgency in Northeast by posting images on Facebook and Twitter using these hashtags #UntoldStoriesOfTheNorthEast & #CampaignAgainstViolentExtremism.

These youth are also known as The Photo Community. BBC Africa covered their story in this short video; you can find the video here Facebook and Twitter .  Some of their amazing pictures are curated on this page [@thephotocommunity_ ] on Instagram.

Finally, if you reside in any of the states in the Northeast that has been affected by the Boko Haram insurgency, please join the campaign by posting positive pictures, and show the world the resilience of the people in your communities. Use the hashtags #UntoldStoriesOfTheNorthEast & #CampaignAgainstViolentExtremism

There’s life beyond the scourge of Boko Haram crisis in the Northeast. Thank you.
