A forex trader, Olufemi Oluwade, on Wednesday appeared in an Ikeja Magistrates Court for allegedly defrauding two men of 2,900 dollars (about N1.1million).
Oluwade, 39, resides at No. 5, Oyawale St., Idimu, Lagos, is charged with stealing and obtaining money under false pretense but he pleaded not guilty.
The Prosecution Counsel, Sgt. Ishola Samuel, told the court that Oluwade obtained 2,900 dollars from the complainants, Olamide Fashipe and Wilson Emele.
He said that the defendant collected the money with a promise to invest the amount in forex trade business.
The prosecution counsel alleged that after Oluwade collected the money, he disappeared.
Samuel told the court that the defendant committed the offence sometime in May, on Awolowo way in Ikeja.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 287 and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Nigeria News Agency reports that Section 287 provides for three years jail term for stealing, while Section 314 attracts 15 years for obtaining money under false pretenses.
Magistrate A.I Abina admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N200, 000 with one surety in like sum.
Abina ordered that the surety must be gainfully employed and possess evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government (LASG).
The magistrate adjourned the case until Aug. 28 for hearing.
Bangladesh’s forex reserves hit all-time high of over 34 bln USD on remittance, IMF COVID-19 emergency assistance
Md. Serajul Islam, executive director of the Bangladesh Bank (BB), told Xinhua that foreign exchange reserves touched the 34 billion U.S. dollars mark for the first time Wednesday, reflecting the country’s strength from the economical and financial point of view.
“Reserve reached a record amount of 34.23 billion United States dollars Wednesday evening. “
He said an emergency assistance of 732 million U.S. dollars, which was deposited Wednesday from the International Monetary Fund to help Bangladesh deal with the COVID-19 impacts following Bangladesh’s appeal for support, drove up the reserves after the month of remittance boom following Eid festival.
Bangladesh celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the two big religious festivals, on May 25. Muslims majority Bangladesh sees remittance boom every year during this festival from millions of non-resident Bangladeshis.
With the last month’s hefty inflows, the BB data showed, the inward remittances in the first 11 months of this 2019-20 fiscal (July 2019-June 2020) grew by about 9 percent to 16.36 billion U.S. dollars against 15.05 billion U.S. dollars in the same period of the last fiscal.
Another official with the Bangladesh Bank (BB) Forex Reserve and Treasury Management Department told Xinhua that the current reserve level is good enough to support Bangladesh’s resilience to external odds, as well as to maintain macroeconomic stability in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The official, who declined to be named, attributed to some extent the robust rise in foreign currency reserves to the slump in import bills due to COVID-19 that made businesses in the country sluggish in the recent months.
Bangladesh is in a position now to pay around eight months’ import bills with the existing reserves, which are also enough to help the central bank’s efforts in keeping the foreign exchange market stable, said the official.
Nigeria assures investors of forex repatriation amid dwindling oil revenues
Nigeria on Sunday assured investors of the safety of their investments in the country despite dwindling revenues from the sale of crude oil globally.
Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, who gave the assurance in Abuja, the nation’s capital, said the bank had put in place policies to ensure an orderly exit for those that might be interested in doing so.
The apex bank governor said investors interested in repatriating their funds from the country are guaranteed to get their money, notwithstanding the drop in the revenue from crude oil.
Emefiele urged investors to be patient as such repatriations are being processed, owing to the bank’s policy of orderly exit of investments.
Recalling a similar situation back in 2015 over declining revenue, the governor said the central bank is able to settle all commitments in an orderly manner.
Forex repatriation: Emefiele assures investors in spite dwindling oil prices
The CBN’s Director, Corporate Communications Department, Mr Isaac Okorafor, in a statement on Sunday, said Emefiele gave the assurance in Abuja.
The apex bank governor said investors interested in repatriating their funds from the country were guaranteed to get their money, notwithstanding the drop in the revenue from crude oil.
He noted that the bank had put in place policies to ensure an orderly exit for those that might be interested in doing so.
Emefiele, however, urged investors to be patient as such repatriations were being processed, owing to the Bank’s policy of orderly exit of investments.
Recalling a similar situation that occurred in 2015 over declining revenue, the governor said that the CBN was able to settle all commitments in an orderly manner.
Meanwhile, Emefiele also stated the CBN, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, was committed to galvanizing the manufacturing sector in a bid to reset the economy.
Emefiele said the COVID-19 presented Nigeria with an opportunity to reset the economy and as such there was need for the country to prepare itself to get the manufacturing sector to work, while the banking sector supports the economy.
The governor added that with the revenue drop from crude, Nigeria had no choice but to diversify its economic base, adding that the time had come for Nigerians to produce what could be produced and consume what is produced in the country.

Petroleum products pricing: PPPRA engages CBN on Forex
The Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) says it is engaging the Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN) to determine the applicable foreign exchange rates for the importation of petroleum products into the country.
The PPPRA Executive Secretary, Abdulkadir Saidu, said in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday that the engagement was also to ensure modalities for accessing the applicable foreign exchange window by the marketers.
“The agency is engaging the CBN to determine the applicable foreign exchange rates for the importation of petroleum products and modalities for accessing the applicable foreign exchange window by the marketers.
“This rate is reflected on the pricing template to determine the expected open market price of the product.
“This means that going forward, the guiding price to be advised will be determined based on the rates quoted by the CBN,” he said.
According to him, the price is expected to guide the sale of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) in Nigeria.
He noted that the agency planned to extend the same pricing mechanism to DPK (kerosene) and AGO (diesel), among other products.
According to Saidu, the essence of the price band is to ensure price efficiency that will be beneficial to both the consumers and oil marketers.
“Price liberalisation is when Expected Open Market Prices (EOMP) prices are completely determined by market forces.
“Under price liberalisation, petroleum products prices will be adjusted, in line with market realities.
“It is pertinent to state that it is crucial to have a robust regulation in place in a market-based pricing regime in order to protect the interest of the consumers and the nation, and ensure the growth of the sector.
“The PPPRA, being the regulatory agency, will continue to carry out all its mandates as enshrined in its establishment Act, which include: to determine the pricing policy of petroleum products and regulate the supply and distribution of petroleum products.
“Other mandates are: to create an information databank and moderate volatility in petroleum products prices, while ensuring reasonable returns to the operators,” he said
The executive secretary listed other functions of the agency to include: establishing parameters and codes of conduct for all operators in the downstream petroleum sector and maintaining constant surveillance over all key indices relevant to pricing policy.
He said that the agency was also empowered to periodically approve benchmark prices for all petroleum products and prevent collusion and restrictive trade practices that were harmful to the sector.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has injected the sum of 292.34million dollars into the retail Secondary Market Intervention Sales (SMIS).

He said that the Bank’s management was satisfied with the performance of naira in the foreign exchange market.
He added that the development would propel the Bank to sustain its intervention in different sectors of the forex market.
Nigeria News Agency reports that the Bank on Tuesday, offered authorised dealers in the wholesale segment of the market the sum of 100million dollars, while the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and invisibles segments received the sum of 55 million dollars each.

NECA hails CBN for exempting coys from Forex restriction
The Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA) has commended the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for exempting six companies from restriction on milk and dairy products importation.
The NECA’S Director-General, Mr Timothy Olawale said in a statement on Thursday in Lagos that it was timely and a sign of responsiveness to good reasoning and businesses concerns.
The Nigeria News Agency reports that the CBN had on Feb. 11 announced the exemption of six companies from the restriction on milk and dairy products importation.
The apex bank said that the exempted companies had started investments in local milk production as part of its backward integration plan.
The companies exempted include; Friesland Campina WAMCO Nigeria, Chi Limited, TG Arla Dairy Products Limited, Promasidor Nigeria Limited, Nestle Nigeria Plc (MSK only) and Integrated Dairies Limited.
Olawale said; “we commend CBN for the bold step of reversing a policy that almost crippled the dairy and milk industry.
“The exemption of the six companies demonstrated that government is indeed, responsive to the concerns we had expressed severally.
“While we support the efforts of CBN, its derivatives and dairy products, we believe that businesses should be given ample time to plan and implement the backward integration programme’’.
He commended the exempted companies for their resilience, doggedness, commitment to local milk production and bold steps at backward integration.
The Director-General, however, urged government to ensure policy consistency and also encourage investment in animal husbandry.
According to him, it will enable the organisations and many other players in the industry to focus on their core business of dairy and milk production.
He said that the experience in other climes showed that animal husbandry was a thriving industry that generated large employment for citizens and revenue for government.
“Government should institutionalise dialogue and focus engagement with organised businesses before taking fundamental policy decisions that can affect businesses.
“A collaborative approach to policy formulation and implementation will do well for the development of the nation,” Olawale said.
NECA is the umbrella organisation of employers in the organised private sector of Nigeria.
