AITEO TO BOOST FG LOCAL CONTENT ASPIRATION WITH $2.85B

 
Aiteo Group one of Africa's leading conglomerates, leading a consortium of five other companies has won the bid for the Royal Dutch Shell's prolific Nigerian oil block, Oil Mining License 29 and an associated pipeline with a bid of $2.85 billion.
The acquisition of OML 29, as well as the Nembe Creek Trunk line, a 60-mile pipeline which has served as Nigeria's major crude oil transportation channel- moving oil through the Niger Delta to the Atlantic coat, is a major boost for Nigerian Local Content Development initiative. The Trunk Line is also an extremely valuable asset as it is also a vessel for other oil exploration companies in Nigeria pay to use it to transport their oil to international markets.

This acquisition has deepened Nigeria's indigenous participation in oil and gas exploration. Aiteo the major shareholder in the consortium purchase of Shell's assets has promised to put its competence to bear in this new deal, which will see it execute the local content to the later.

This is expected to translate to the creation of over 20,000 jobs in the exploration and production sub-sectors of the oil and gas industry. The Nigerian content implementation had increased the level of participation of Nigerians in oil and gas contracts to 87 per cent.

According to investment analysts, Aiteo by this development has shown that it is committed to the development of the Nigeria Oil and Gas sector in accordance with the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry Content Act 2010 (NOGICD Act) enacted by the Federal Government of Nigeria in April 2010 for Nigerian Content Development.

It has been established that OML 29's remaining reserves (P1+P2) hold about 2.2Billion barrels of oil equivalent (BOE), while its hydrocarbon fields could deliver as much 160,000 barrels of oil per day and 300MMscf/d at peak.

ABOUT AITEO
The Aiteo GROUP is a vertically integrated energy company, expanding its global footprint and scope from oil and Gas and Power into fully diversified conglomerate with investments across key economic sectors including Mining, Agriculture, Financial Services, Real Estate and infrastructure.

LINDA IKEJI,THE HATERS AND HOUNDS BY DR. PEREGRINO BRIMAH


Linda Ikeji affects us all; just like the Premier league (hope that’s how it’s spelt), enough Nigerians are engaged in the LIB for those who may not, to know and appreciate that being the #2 indigenous website in Nigeria –second to Nairaland only – and the #1 news site and #1 African indigenous personality blog in history, our friends are most likely fans and addicts of hers and thus it serves as a primary means by which they are informed and we are influenced if we happen not to be readers.

The summary of the challenge that took her down (temporarily) is this tweet by a certain figure who suddenly appeared from obscurity.

"People still don't get it, this Linda issue is not about credit, it is about seeking permission before usage. Plain and simple."

The above comment was tweeted by Mr. Aye Dee on October 6th, two days after his twitter page came into existence (October 4th).

For the media publishing that the problem is Linda not giving him credit; you are wrong. Perhaps she has in the past been attacked for not giving credit, but not so in this case, at least according to the man at the helm of it. He wanted more from Linda. He wanted her to ask him first before using anything on his TL (Time Line). He can sue me now for posting this comment he made. Yes; that’s what he goes after.

FLORENCE ITA GIWA'S HEN PARTY

FLORENCE ITA GIWA, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE
GROOM'S MOM

NDIDI OBIOHA

IRETI ASEMOTA


BUNMI, NDIDI & GUEST

A couple of weeks ago, the gorgeous & extraordinarily stylish Senator Florence Ita Giwa went all the way to put together what many have come to tag as one of the wedding parties of the year, for her 2nd daughter Kokoeca Florence Mayen, who got married to her heartthrob Chimaobi Shawcross.

Some even went on further to call the party a carnival. From all we saw they weren't wrong in anyway. Apart from the traditional ceremony that was done in the bride's home state in Calabar, Cross River State, there were about 2  pre-wedding party on the same night. One was the bride's hen party, that was celebrated at a secret location, while the bride's mom, in the person of Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, hosted her own friends to what was tagged the Mother's hen party, at the Sky Lounge, Eko Hotel, Lagos. The venue has that super fantastic view of the Bar Beach/Atlantic Ocean from most probably the highest point on Eko Hotel.

According to some of those who were privileged to attend, they said it was a classy party by all standards.  Knowing the good Senator well, we are so sure she wouldn't have spared expense in anyway to make sure her guests were well taken care of.

Some of those in attendance were likes of Princess Yetunde Onilere, ever graceful Grace Egbagbe, Ireti Asemota, the short hair wearing Ruth Osime, Ndidi Obioha, ever stylish Nkiru Anumudu, Data Okorodudu, thespian of note Joke Jacobs, Hajia Abah Folawiyo, Queen Ahneva and very many others.  We even heard that there was an unofficial dancing competition, that was supposedly won hands down by Ndidi Obioha, who was clad in a beautiful all black shimmery/ leather like outfit, that showed off her structure to good effect.

From the look of things, at least from the pictures, it was obvious those in attendance had good fun.

Check out more of gorgeous guests at the event in living colours below.  All the pictures here belong to Maestro's Media.

BIG BROTHER AFRICA: THE HOTSHOT- NIGERIAN HOUSEMATES- LILIAN & TAYO




This year's edition of the Big Brother Africa has begun in earnest and it is already generating so much buzz. There are 26 housemates in all, with each of them having a good chance to cart home the $300,000 Dollars prize money (Three Hundred thousand Dollars), that's about #50 Million good Naira for the last person standing.

Amongst those vying for the money are 2 Nigerians. A male & a female; The gorgeous model/Nollywood budding actress Lilian Afegbai, who is known to most as sexy Lee lee & the handsome Tayo, are the lucky 2 out of the many representing the country of over 160 million people.

How would they both fare at the end of the day? We do not know so much yet, but with just a day in the house now, both are already causing some major buzz. Just yesterday alone, both were on each others neck arguing over Love & Ferrari, though it later emerged that Tayo was too hasty in his actions. Is this unnecessary argument good for the 2? Not necessarily, but it's also not bad in any way too. It only brought some attention there way and just shows that they can be turned against each other very easily.

Lilian on her own has started causing major buzz though, she's being speculated to be one of the 1st housemates in the BBA house, that might start a relationship most likely with Luis. Reason for this is because of the way Luis, was seen openly caressing her impressive bum, in the guise of helping her to massage the tired muscles. The ex-staff of  Tunde Fowler's LIRS (Lagos Internal Revenue Service), Sura Shopping Complex branch was seen openly enjoying her housemate's very good effort.

Prior to going into the Big Brother Africa: The Hotshot House, the statuesque model, has featured on many adverts, some of which are "The Gulder Ultimate Search Advert", another  one is the Diamond Bank Plc advertorial with Bovi", she has also featured in some Nollywood movies and a series or 2 on AfricaMagic, she also contested sometime ago at the Miss Delta Soap pageant.

The 2012 graduate of Accounting from the Benson Idahosa University, same school as the likes of past winner of BBA Uti Nwachukwu & Ex-beauty queen Munachi Abii, is said to be an extrovert to the core, an exciting girl, who loves to shock people, not minding how they feel or think. Someone has even said, she who would soon show to the world the stuff of which she's made very soon.  We are eagerly waiting!!!!!

Can she win????????

DURO OLOWO SCORES HIGH WITH SPRING/SUMMER 2015 COLLECTION






Though the extraordinarily talented designer is of Nigerian heritage, we are not too sure he has ever shown any of his collection in Nigeria before.

This new collection we hear was inspired by his trip to Saint-Louis in Senegal a short while back, where he saw the intermingling of the European & African cultures as it concerns fashion. His discovery on that trip was the spark for this beautiful collection.
