Bye bye to jati jati.

A post shared by Senator Dino Melaye (SDM) (@dinomelaye) on

Here, he was seen here singing
“Home my Home” – A Nursery School Rhyme – Tagging his post (Bye Bye To Jati Jati)

What a funny animated personnel- (Nice, Right?)

But a tumultuous glimpse of refusal arose early today July 9th, 2018 when his acclaimed New Party PDP refuted claims he was welcomed and embraced.

To the surprise of all, he was rejected VERBALLY with a Red Stamp on his paper, and even on his forehead … (Funny though?)

In retrospect, he stood firm with his switch from APC to PDP right inside house of senate where he refused to sit amongst his former APC Colleagues. (I bet we could all remember, if not click here to read the post)

Kogi West Elders Forum (KWEF), a faction of the Kogi state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has rejected Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West, who recently announced his defection back to the Party.

The group claimed that Melaye cannot be given automatic ticket to re-contest for the Kogi West senatorial seat.

They accused the senator of being too controversial for the party and claimed he has lost his popularity among the masses and so cannot win any election.

The group chairman, Hon. Shaibu Momoh, made this known at a press meeting in Lokoja over the weekend.

He said: “That the news of an attempt to impose the controversial Senator Dino Melaye on the peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Kogi West, by the national leadership of the party, as automatic senatorial candidate for the 2019 National Assembly election is hereby rejected in it totality and unacceptable.

“PDP leadership in kogi West endorsed by the state Leadership was the first Party to take a firm decision to shift/zone the position to other Federal constituency of the state for equity and justice, since over a year now.

“Known aspirants have emerge from other areas excluding Ijumu in PDP and they have being on the field carrying out their consultations and preparing their structures in preparation for the party Senatorial primaries expending huge amount of resources and time for the past 12 months.

“To now impose a strange candidate under a questionable reasons will not only be wrong, unjust and unfair but it will totally collapse all efforts by our highly respected leaders at rebuilding and rebranding the party in the state there by giving an opportunity and undue advantage to the opposition party APC that is in government to contend with.”

CBN to End Forex Sales to Commercial Banks in 2022



Author: Eunice Johnson, Abuja 

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has put Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) on notice that it will stop selling forex to them by the end of 2022. CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele made this known in Abuja on Thursday at the end of the Bankers’ Committee Meeting where he also introduced the RT200 Programme.




Emefiele said the time had come for the banks to go out there and source for forex by funding entrepreneurs with ideas. The CBN, Emefiele said, will support the banks by granting rebates and other support until the banks find their feet in sourcing their forex by themselves.

He also disclosed that the apex bank’s policies and measures have led to a significant improvement in diaspora inflow from an average of US$6 million per week in December 2020 to an average of over US$100 million per week by January 2022. He added that the CBN would be reviewing these intervention programmes going forward to ensure that they continue to achieve the desired results.

He said international bodies, including some embassies and donor agencies, have been complicit in illegal forex transactions that have hindered the flow of foreign exchange into the country.
