Facebook Now Lets People Open Shops On WhatsApp, Messenger, etc

Facebook has come up with what I can describe as a lockdown-proof economic helper. Online shopping on business pages on all its popular platforms.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, says the reason is to allow businesses that are locked down still make sales and take orders from their Facebook, Instagram, livesstream,Whatsapp, Messenger business pages – lockdown or no lockdown. Customers can pay on checkout with their debit or credit cards on Facebook and Instagram. Soon they will be able to take payment even directly on WhatsApp and Messenger.

Speaking during a livestream, Zuckerberg said:

‘If you can’t physically open your store or restaurant, you can still take orders online and ship them to people.’

Quoting Zuckerberg, Fortune reported that:

Customers will be able to communicate with the retailer through WhatsApp, Instagram Direct, or Messenger. In the future, Facebook said, customers would be able to make purchases directly through these messaging services too.

Facebook Shops will allow any business to set up a unified Facebook and Instagram virtual storefront, put its catalog online, and take orders through either a link to its own website or, for companies in the U.S. that use Facebook’s “checkout” feature, directly on Facebook’s platform.

Done well, this feature will certainly help ecommerce businesses. It is also a strategic move for Facebook as it would be entering a field that has been dominated by Amazon.


January 1966 Coup Was Not An Igbo Coup – Reno Omokri

Former Presidential spokesman to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has come out to question the wildly promoted suggestion that the 1966 coup was an Igbo coup. He mentions two of the top Igbo officers that did the most to stop the coup and asks why it was them who stopped the coup if it was indeed am Igbo coup. See what he said:

About the January 15, 1966 coup, why did Nzeogwu and Ifeajuna elect to kill those they toppled. Why not arrest them? And if they had to kill, why were the killings not balanced? The ironic thing is that the Ifeajuna/Nzeogwu coup was actually foiled largely by then Lt. Col. Emeka Ojukwu in Kano, and Major General Aguiyi Ironsi in Lagos. Yet, these two individuals later became casualties of the July 28, countercoup. Was Nzeogwu just a pawn in Ifeajuna’s coup? In retrospect, if the coup was an Igbo coup, why did two Igbos foil it? Personally, I think the Nigeria the 1966 coup plotters ended was by far better than the Nigeria they started. Discuss. #1966TheYearNigeriaGotItWrong

Complaints Despite The Cheap Cost Of Madagascar’s Covid-19 Solution

There are complaints in Nigeria about the cost of Madagascar’s Covid-19 cure Covid Organics. Some have characterised the $170,000 cost as an expensive demand from Madagascar.

This is even when Nigeria spends much more in aid to other African countries.

Some people are looking for any and every reason not to give Nigerians the curative herbal tea called Covid Organics or CVO.

They also said it will not be cost effective to import the drug. What happened to removing or reducing import tariffs for the drug?

The Federal Government should reduce import tariffs for Covid Organics herbal tea, so Nigerian businessmen can import it the same way they import other herbal teas.
