Some early-morning muses.
On the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) courtship, I am here trying to connect some dots. What you will call conspiracy theory of the lowest order …
1. JAMB was going to get NIMC to capture and have the candidates just submit NIN so that JAMB can pull the data from NIMC … 2 million odd candidates. Way to go. Kudos.
The ISOC Webminar, where I joined others on a panel to discuss Internet Shutdown.
Many friends and associates have been tagging me up and down on social media, that the promoters of the Airline-in-formation were not smart enough to pre-register their digital asset, and that some smart-alec registered nigeriaair.ng, nigeriaair.com.ng and all its variants, and is offering it for sale at N48m or more .
You see, .ng a Country-Code Top Level Domain(ccTLD) and the rules are different from a Generic Top level Domain (gTLD) such as .com.
The issues and options, for those who are curious …
I finally tested Quikcash today, and can report how it works, for those of you out there who do not know. Just go through my notes here, to have an idea.
Quikcash is an instant Cash loan application that does not need data to run on your mobile phone. Think of it, as your lender of last resort. Continue reading “Innovative and Functional Financial Help”
The Nigeria Communications Commission has finally agreed that it is indeed women who carry pregnancies, and not men. How else can you explain the volte-face on call masking and call refiling? Continue reading “NCC’s Call Masking U-Turn”
On 25 May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace all current data protection laws in every European Union country. The GDPR represents the most significant change to data protection law in more than two decades. However, the reach of the GDPR will not be limited to Europe.
Dear Nigeria Communications Commission,
I will like to draw your attention and that of the Security Analyst that wrote that piece published in the Guardian (http://guardian.ng/business-services/much-ado-about-call-masking-and-call-refilling-sunday-folayan-and-odaran-intervention/) and The Cable (https://www.thecable.ng/much-ado-call-masking-call-refilling-sunday-folayan-odaran-intervention), which is a rejoinder to my facebook post (https://web.facebook.com/sfolayan/posts/10155512284974107).

My right to reply.
I read the response (https://www.thecable.ng/much-ado-call-masking-call-refillin…) of the erudite Telecoms Analyst – Kunle Arowojobe, to my facebook post (https://www.facebook.com/sfolayan/posts/10155512284974107)
I was very amused at the attempt to go after the messenger while ignoring the clear message. Sadly, the “analyst” was too lazy to research and confirm my pedigree and motivation. It is preposterous to assert or assume that I was defending my pot of soup, just as it is preposterous to assume that Arowojobe was commissioned to write the rejoinder. One can however assert that the NCC should be noble in ignoring such sycophants. Continue reading “The sacred Art of “Intelligent Intelligence” and lopsided Telecommunications Analyses.”
A crime is in progress in the Telecommunications Industry. Unfortunately, some innocent operators are being hounded as the criminals, while the real barons are popping champagne, and smiling at the chaos because they are rich, powerful, connected and can toss the law and communications police the way they like. Sadly, it may degenerate into some technological genocide.
