4% Reduction In ‘Talk Tax’ Takes Effect Today

Published

on


Mobile subscribers and data users will from Tuesday, September 15, 2020, enjoy longer durations of voice and data bundles but pay the same amount of money for recharges.

This is because mobile network operators will be reducing the Communication Service Tax (CST), also known as “talk tax” charged on the use of communication services in the country.

The Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, during the presentation of the 2020 mid-year budget review announced that the talk tax will be reduced from 9 percent to 5 percent.

This formed part of the government’s effort to alleviate the plight of Ghanaians during the coronavirus pandemic.

n a statement to confirm the implementation of the new tariff, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications, Ken Ashigbey, said, “The tariff adjustment programme means when our customers pay the same price they would enjoy more, which is in line with the government’s measures in alleviating cost burden on citizens in the wake of the global pandemic.”

The statement added, “Mobile Network Operators will notify their customers on the completion of the modification exercise and provide further transparency on the adjusted tariffs of their products and services while offering other relevant information post usage of these services.”

This new development, according to the statement, comes after “effective dialogue and stakeholder
engagements led by the Finance Ministry as well as our supervising Ministry and agencies”.

Sub-Saharan Africa Has No Choice Than To Stick To Fossil Fuel-Dr Babajide Agunbiade.

Published

on


As the world is drifting towards the use of renewable energy to power their economies, sub-Saharan Africa has no choice than to focus on exploring the use of oil and gas to support their economies, and this is according to Dr Babajide Agunbiade, a renowned engineer, investor and Director for Houston -based National Oilwell Varco.

Speaking in an interview with U.K – based Channel TV Business Desk, on the global rising oil demand, Dr. Agunbiade said despite the adverse effect of Covid-19 resulting in lower oil production, demand for oil and gas has peaked as a result of the use of an alternative source of energy that does not require fossil fuel.

He stated, however, that the wind of change is not taking place as much as it should in sub-Saharan Africa.

Dr. Babajide, who has over 20 years experience in the oil industry and one of the worlds leading offshore production experts, was of the view that sub-Saharan Africa, China, and India are places where oil demand is rising, unlike the UK, North America, among a host of advanced countries, where a lot of new technologies are coming into play.

“However, in Africa, it is still the only commodity that can satisfy the demands of an increasing population, an expanding middle class, and in some cases, the main source of governments’ earnings. We still have a lot of oil,” he asserted.

Dr. Babajide explained that as a result of the enormous deposits of oil and gas, operators and service companies are doing what they can to optimize production cost and continue producing the commodity.

“As stated, a lot of these African countries do depend substantially on oil revenue for survival. Oil still plays a large role in these sub- Saharan countries’ economies, accounting for up to 40 percent of GDP and 80 percent to 90 percent of governments’ earnings,” he stated.

The Director of National Oilwell Varco, the largest Oilfield equipment manufacturing company in the world, said 90 per cent of the earnings of the Government of Nigeria come from oil and the same as Angola, Gabon and the rest of the oil-producing countries in sub- Saharan Africa.

With these figures, he was convinced that the shift to renewable energy at the expense of oil and gas in sub-Saharan Africa has not been the focus for now, and this must change.

“There is no push for anything different. They are still aggressively trying to source foreign exchange, which for the most part, they can only do that through oil,” he opined.

According to him, wind energy, electric cars and a lot of other renewable energy options and integrated gasification in the combined cycle, IGCC from coal have to come into play.

African Construction Giant, Sujimoto Explains 400% ROI In Two Years Offer

Published

on


Sujimoto Construction CEO, Sijibomi Ogundele, has said that 400% return in 2 years for investing in LeonardoBySujimoto is real, describing it as a great opportunity for ambitious investors.

Ogundele affirmed that the projected ROI is not a mere hype but a reality anyone who buys into LeonardobySujimoto project will enjoy.

Speaking with Vanguard, Ogundele explained that it is Sujimoto’s policy of putting value maximization over profit maximization and that investors will actually get over 400% because, by the time it is completed 2 years from now, LeonardoBySujimoto will cost $3million USD as against the $650k which it currently sells for.

He said, “First, the Leonardo is not just your regular high-rise building, it is a fully automated luxury waterfront project with a world-class interactive lobby – first of its kind in Nigeria, Indoor Virtual Golf, Standard IMAX Cinema, award-winning Zaha Hadid Bathroom, Luxury Crèche, Private Salon, world-class SPA and other record-breaking features and facilities.

“Picture this, a 3 Bedroom at the Leonardo is currently selling for $650,000 USD. Upon completion in 2 years’ time and considering the kind of features and facilities we are bringing into the Leonardo, this same 3 Bedroom will sell for $3million USD, giving you over 400% ROI! The nicest and most expensive 3 Bedroom apartment on Bourdillon Road and Eko Atlantic are selling for $3m USD. What we have designed is 3 times better and 3 times cheaper.

“In 2018, when we launched our recently concluded GiulianoBySujimoto project in Banana Island, a unit sold for N280 million as off-plan. Upon completion, this same project is currently selling for N600 million, giving investors over 200% ROI in 2 years! The Leonardo is 20 times bigger with more features and facilities that will rival and outclass most 5-star hotels in the world.

“There are 3 types of people in life, the Optimist who sees a huge investment opportunity in the LeonardoBySujimoto and buys numerous units off-plan; the realist who knows the Leonardo is an incredible investment opportunity but is skeptical, waiting for some external validation, only to realise months later that the prices have increased by 50%; and the Pessimist who never sees how a real estate investment can yield 400% ROI.

“At Sujimoto, we’ve built our foundation on Quality, erected our pillars on Integrity and made Luxury the driving force of who we are.

“In 2016 when the economic recession halted the LorenzoBySujimoto project, none of our investors lost their money as we returned over half a million dollar. Even though we lost a lot of money, but losing investors’ money was non- negotiable, because the bank of credibility is too expensive to withdraw from, as TRUST is her CURRENCY

“It is rather unfortunate that we live in a country where people have lost the enthusiasm to dream and every great opportunity is seen as a scam, too incredible to be true. However, it is also interesting to note that within the last few months, we have sold more units in 5 weeks than we have sold in 5 years of our existence.

“The Leonardo is offering discerning investors a whopping 400% in 2 years, a return on investment that not even gold, treasury bills or cryptocurrencies can boast of! With Treasury Bills and Fixed deposit at 3.5% ROI annually, where would you rather invest?”
