Hello @mekkaokereke or anybody else familiar with working with folks overseas in is there a clearly preferred way to make international payments there? Domestically we use Gusto but their international fees seem vague at best. It looks like @opencollective would let us use PayPal or Wise. Are there any labor or employment law issues to watch out for if the person doesn't have their own legal entity we can contract with? Is it hard to set up an LLC there?

I understand the need to fund cybersecurity efforts to thwart criminals. However, this latest levy conveniently exempts the affluent by focusing on select transactions.

Following the enactment of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, etc) (amendment) Act 2024 and pursuant to the provision of Section 44 (2)(a) of the Act, “a levy of 0.5% (0.005) equivalent to a half percent of all electronic transactions value by the business specified in the Second Schedule of the Act”, is to be remitted to the National Cybersecurity Fund (NCF), which shall be administered by the Office of the National Security Advisor (ONSA). […]

The levy shall be applied at the point of electronic transfer origination, then deducted and remitted by the financial institution.

The deducted amount shall be reflected in the customer’s account with the narration: “Cybersecurity Levy”. (Central Bank of Nigeria 🇳🇬, PDF here)

The Premium Times provides reactions from Nigerians 🇳🇬, which is unfavorable as no one wants an increase in expenses during this age of inflation we are living in.

Although I do not desire to pay extra fees when conducting transactions, I understand the levy’s necessity, even if I do not appreciate the expense.

While it is understandable that there would be exemptions to the new Levy (for charities, payroll, school, transactions within the bank, government, etcetera), one exemption did capture my attention.

SCHEDULE OF EXEMPTIONS FROM CYBERSECURITY LEVY […]

  1. Savings and deposits including transactions involving long-term investments such as Treasury Bills, Bonds and Commercial Papers. (Central Bank of Nigeria 🇳🇬)

Usually, the affluent invest long-term in bonds & treasury bills, so its appearance here as an exception is suspicious. Like any other nation, Nigeria 🇳🇬 needs investors, but they should not cater to their interests while asking the public to increase their burden.

Nigerians 🇳🇬 are threatening lawsuits against the Cybersecurity Levy. However, I doubt the government will suspend a new source of revenue when nations seek extra cash to maintain the upkeep of their respective countries.

Meanwhile in Nigeria, the health service has imposed a new two year working requirement before nurses qualifications will be validated for work abroad - a measure intended to stop the 'brain drain' of qualified nurses to other countries health care systems... prompting legal action from the nurses

Given the numbers of Nigerian nurses who have headed to the UK, this may prove yet one more factor in the NHS workforce planning problems....

A decade ago, 276 girls were abducted from their school in the Nigerian town of Chibok, a kidnapping that shocked the world and sparked a global campaign. More than 180 have since either escaped or been freed. Lisu, which is not her real name, was one who escaped and now lives in group housing under state care. She feels she is being treated worse. “I do regret coming back.” Read more from the BBC: https://flip.it/.VJSUC

Becoming Nigerian: A Guide by Elnathan John

Be(com)ing Nigerian is an outrageously funny and acerbic guide to how to be a Nigerian; from how to attain the much-maligned, but heady rank of politician to achieving the status of the silver-tongued, private jet-flying religious leader.
