No law criminalising trade in cryptocurrency – BICCoN

Published

on

The Blockchain Industry Coordinating Committee of Nigeria has said no legislation from the National Assembly criminalise trade in cryptocurrency.

It therefore noted that the Central Bank of Nigeria’s directive to shut down cryptocurrency operations, if not reviewed, would set a dangerous precedent in the country.

The blockchain industry group, in a statement signed by its General Secretary, Senator Ihenyen, expressed shock and displeasure over the ban.

According to BICCoN, though the CBN has the statutory authority to delimit banking operations, ordering banks and other financial institutions to freeze accounts suspected to be in use for cryptocurrency may not be supported by law.

“This is because there is currently no legislation by the National Assembly criminalising or illegalising trade in cryptocurrency in Nigeria. Therefore, it is questionable whether the CBN has the statutory power to order the (permanent) freezing of these accounts,” it said.

The group noted that the ban would limit crypto trading to unregulated decentralised platforms where unenlightened and unsuspecting members of the public would be more vulnerable to scams, making the Nigerian crypto space a den of criminals.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing
    the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

Rains: NiMet warns of severe turbulence, flight cancellations

Published

on

The Director-General, Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NiMet), Prof. Mansur Matazu, has said airlines will encounter severe turbulence, flight delays and cancellations during rainfall.
He therefore called on pilots and airline managements to adhere to the weather forecast as the likely severe turbulence could cause discomfort, injury to passengers, instability and even loss of control for small aircraft.
Matazu was quoted in a statement on Friday as saying, “Heavy rains could also lead to skidding of aeroplanes due to surface wetness and impaired horizontal visibility.
“Thunderstorms could also lead to accidents, incidents, flight delays, flight cancellation, death, damage among others.
“Windshear could lead to accidents, incidents, aircraft nosedive, discomfort, aircraft lost control and death.”
The NiMet boss urged airline operators to take weather forecast seriously, stating the turbulence usually would cause poor visibility.
He also called on passengers to be patient with the airlines as flight delays, flight cancellations and flight diversion will be experienced within this period.

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the MTN Group to offer quality service to its Nigerian subscribers at cheaper rates.
He stated this when he received in audience members of the board of MTN Group, led by its President and Chief Executive Officer, Ralph Mupita, at the State House, Abuja, on Friday.
Buhari said, “I congratulate you on your appointment as the Group President of MTN. I wish you all the best.
“Nigeria is your most lucrative market in Africa, Asia and the Middle East as well as the source of a third of the income of the entire MTN Group. As such, we urge you to offer top-of-the-range and affordable services to Nigerians.
“As we seek to make broadband widely available and affordable, we urge MTN to continue to support our efforts by expanding high-quality connectivity to Nigerians in un-served and under-served areas.”
The President also called on MTN to support the implementation of the National Policy for the Promotion of Indigenous Content in the telecommunications sector.
He said, “I recently unveiled and launched the National Policy for the Promotion of Indigenous Content in the Nigerian telecommunications sector.
“I call on MTN to support the implementation of this policy and, train and engage more Nigerians in your company.”
He assured his visitors that his administration was doing everything possible to make Nigeria investor-friendly by addressing identified challenges.
