Goodnight to PDP- Obasanjo says

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo today said he has bid goodnight to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which he was a founding member. Speaking to newsmen after accessing some projects in Taraba state, Obasanjo discredited claims that he was planning to return to the party.

“In the part of the country where I come from, there is a saying that you cannot say ‘good night’ and come back to say ‘good evening’ in the same place. So for me, it is good night for the Peoples Democratic Party and that’s all” he said.On February 16th last year, the former president supervised the tearing of his PDP membership card.

Letshego Holdings Limited continues to make strides in delivering on its mandate to ensure simple, appropriate and affordable financial solutions across Africa. Following Letshego's acquisition of FBN Microfinance Bank (FBN MFB) from its parent, FBN Holdings plc., the inclusive finance group on Friday 1201 August 2016 revealed the rebranded business. Now known as Letshego MFB, the brand was revealed to key stakeholders in Lagos. The rebrand aligns the Nigeria operations' brand with that of the other nine Letshego operations across sub-Saharan Africa. This Africa-wide brand is being reinforced with equally aligned strategic imperatives, as Letshego Group continues to further its ambition to become Africa's leading inclusive finance group.

The bank, established in 2009, is one of seven microfinance banks in Nigeria to have been awarded a national microfinance banking licence. It has over 20 branches across Lagos, Abuja and Oyo, and over 300 team members, with a focus on core lending, savings and transactional financial services to micro and small enterpreneurs (MSEs). With over 80,000 savers and over 10,000 MSE borrowing customers, the contribution towards realising Letshego group's financial inclusion vision remains strong. The agenda to benefit the people of Nigeria remains a key imperative for the business, as Letshego reaffirms its focus on improving lives through simple, appropriate and affordable solutions.

"The news of the acquisition early this year is coming to life now as we see Letshego MFB take shape in a bold, purposeful new look and feel, joining a family of brands that has a clear vision and strategy for inclusive finance. This is another affirmation of our commitment to the people of Nigeria - we will continue to make every effort to ensure we deliver relevant, value adding and responsible financial solutions. Innovation underpins our financial inclusion agenda, and it is innovation, partnerships and access to capita that we leverage to ensure we help deliver an enhanced customer experience to improve life. Doing so remains our goal and, indeed, our passion. Our new brand promise "Let's improve life," is embodied in everything that we do," said Letshego Holdings Limited Group Managing Director, Mr. Chris Low.

In Nigeria, and building upon the infrastructure, access and heritage of the bank, Letshego offers the full spectrum of financial solutions. This covers savings, borrowings, payments and micro-insurance, with a focus on agriculture, education and health sectors.

Mr. Tom Kocsis, Letshego Holdings Limited Group Head of East Africa and Microfinance shared, "This is a tremendous time for Letshego. As we commemorate this milestone, we remain cognisant of our commitment to delivery of broad based financial solutions through diversification of customer segments, products and access channels. The growth prospects in our targeted formally employed, low-and-middle income, and MSE customer segments in Nigeria bring a wealth of potential. Our growing investment in supporting the people of Nigeria, and championing strong socio-economic development through inclusive finance, is a means for us to further improve lives. Born in Botswana, with a pan-African strategy and footprint, we remain passionate about ensuring we live true to the very meaning of "Letshego," which translates from Setswana to "support"."

Expansion has been a critical growth focus for Letshego together with the areas of micro-finance, savings and payments services. In addition, using channels that allow access anytime, anywhere has been an area of strategic focus for Letshego in recent years. The re-branded Letshego FBN is envisioned to offer a well-diversified, full-service solution set, and to grow into a trusted financial services brand for the people of Nigeria.

Photos: Katy Perry is ravishing in red at her shoe launch

The 31-year-old was a picture of sexy confidence as she rocked up to her shoe launch looking like something out of a magazine in a bright red suit.

The singer who recently became the most followed Twitter user in history, reaching 91.9 million followers on the social media website opened up on the pressures of being so popular. She said in an interview:

'I think everyone feels a little on edge saying anything. Sometimes you feel like you have to read all the news before you can say anything. I feel like I have the power with one button to speak with so many people and be connected with people all over the world at the snap of your finger.
It's a powerful tool. But when you have a lot to lose you get a bit careful because the bigger you are the harder you fall. So you just kind of have to learn how to bob and weave. I think the whole world has become a little on edge over what you can and cannot say. And it's not just me, it's anyone.'More photos.
