president buhari urges closer collaboration to tackle economic challenges in west africa
PRESIDENT BUHARI URGES CLOSER COLLABORATION TO TACKLE ECONOMIC CHALLENGES IN WEST AFRICA President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday called on executives of banking institutions in West Africa to forge a closer collaboration to tackle economic challenges confronting the sub-region. Receiving a delegation from the West African Bankers Association (WABA), led by its President, Thierno Seydou Nourou Sy, the President noted that the sub-region must find a common understanding and ground to address low access to financial services and recovery from post COVID-19 pandemic. President Buhari told the association, founded in 1981, and which brings together over 250 commercial banks and 15 institutions from across West Africa, that ,for many centuries, African countries have traded with one another without a formalized and structured system. He, however, noted that over time, global trade has become more complex and organized. The Nigerian leader expressed confidence that the rollout of the African Continental Free Trade Area would be a turning point in how African countries trade with each other. ''More importantly, we will turn the page in ensuring that we deepen and expand our industrial capabilities by making sure we export less of what we have been endowed with in primary or raw form, and convert larger portions of these resources into finished materials. ''That will allow us to benefit from the revenue earned from the added value of exporting a finished product,'' he said. Speaking further, the Nigerian leader declared: ''Our ability to overcome the current phase of our development lies in our resolve to work jointly via our regional and sub-regional organizations where we can all reach a common understanding to fight against a common enemy. ''This is one of the reasons I am delighted with the strides ECOWAS has been making towards unanimity and forging alliances with a goal to resolve issues that confront the sub-region. ''I believe that this is also the approach that is being followed in the West African Bankers’ Association and the West African Monetary Union.'' Commenting on ongoing efforts to synchronize monetary and fiscal policies through WABA, the President challenged the association to work towards finding a common ground, despite the unique macro-economic challenges that each member-state faces. He pledged that Nigeria will always be ready to support efforts that are geared towards improving the lives of all its citizens ''as long as they do not place us at a disadvantage.'' The WABA President lauded the lead role Nigeria plays in African economy, adding that President Buhari’s leadership was also well appreciated. ''That’s why we are here for counsel and guidance for the financial sector in West Africa,'' he said. He urged President Buhari to be an advocate for greater inclusion for WABA in ECOWAS structure, also noting that one of the challenges with the banking system is capacity building, and urging Nigeria to set up a training academy for the industry.

the igho landing 1803
I want to tell you a story, a true story not a fiction, a story of the Igbo, not so much of the recent Igbo but the Igbos of the slave trade era. A story that might interest you. In may, 1803 a ship loaded with from West Africa was forcefully hijacked by a group of 75 Igbo slaves. The 75 Igbos was part of the enslaved people being transported the current day Nigeria to the United States of America. The Igbos were known for being fiercely independent and resistant to slavery. The enslaved people who were being transported to the United States of America, were to auctioned off in a local slave market in Georgia. These slaves were believed to be sold to their captors, John Couper and Thomas Spalding, and were to be sold at the rate of 100 dollars each. The slaves were chained, packed and decked in slave ship to be shipped to St. Simons Island, Glynn County, Georgia in the United States of America. so, apparently, during their journey the enslaved people rose up in rebellion. They seized control of the ship and drowned their captors, this cause the ship to be grounded in Dunbar Creek at the site now locally known as Igbo Landing. Apparently also, but not hundred percent certain, because there are several versions of what the development after the revolt of the Igbos. But the most popular one is, after the Igbos went ashore they enjoyed just a short lived freedom and walked backed in the water in unison, singing and chanting in the Igbo language "The Water Spirit brought us, the Water Spirit will take us home" under the direction of a high Igbo chief among them. They thereby accepted the protection of their god Chukwu and death over the alternative of slavery.
