Often in democracies around the world public discussions are shaped by the media. It is incumbent on the media to not only inform, but to thrash out the details in clear view of the public sphere. This public spectacle is in a bid to display the highest level of integrity by being as transparent and honest in approaching guests, contributors, and participators alike. The goal is to cultivate a better understanding as the conversation is under way.
We will be exploring social media videos and posts, and reacting to them as it relates to the greater good. Please send in interesting materials for a chance to be featured on one of our segments.
The information vortex reports that there has been a steady rise in the price of Nigerian crude since the early part of September, and an obvious spike after the attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities. The question becomes what steps the Nigerian authorities are taking in lieu of this sudden surge in crude prices? According to https://oilprice.com/ the prices rose on Sept. 13 2019, from $62.34 to about $67.18 where it sits now after spiking to the 70's in the aftermath of the saudi attacks. According to The cable NIgeria (https://www.thecable.ng/govs-nigeria-lost-1-3bn-worth-of-crude-oil-...), the National Economic Council which is made up of state governors claim that oIl theft has risen to $1.35bn every year. Another question looming is whether Nigeria will capitalize on the window of opportunity created by the price hike? And how long will it take for them to do so?
