“We always have to buy water because when we pump water, it isn’t clean. And buying water is expensive,” says Moses a 27-year-old Nigerian who lives in Victoria Island, Lagos.
This problem isn’t unique to Moses. Nigeria has 215 cubic kilometers (215 trillion liters) of available surface water each year, but only 19% of Her population has access to safe drinking water. 
Nigeria suffers from “economic water scarcity” — the inability to properly manage, use and protect water resources for socio-economic development and environmental sustainability. 
Learners in our alpha learning program asked stay-home individuals about their experiences accessing…
Over the last 2 years, various communities have started locally and evolved. From Devcenter Square to forLoop to ScaleMyHustle and Startup Grind Lagos. These are some of the communities that are popular in Nigeria.
But apart from helping members learn, connect and grow, are there other uses for a community?
Are they not a social impact effort like CSR programs? A resource-intensive effort that helps grow the ecosystem with no business ROI?

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates that the average size of the informal economy as a percentage of gross national income (GNI) in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is 42.3%. In Nigeria, it is 60%.
With the number of Nigerian FinTech startups and companies around and even more starting up, I wondered why so much of Nigeria’s gross national income was from the informal market. And whether the current technological advancements in Finance are helping individuals in the informal markets access financial services and be properly banked.
This led me to do a brief study on the impact of current technological advancements…
Lagos is a small state geographically with a lot crammed into it. Because of its jam-packed nature, getting around fast can be daunting and stressful.
This is most evident when going to work and was one of the reasons I left Lagos for Sokoto back in 2014. Another reason I left was that of the negativity in the air. Everyone on the street always seemed angry or upset at something.
