The development of OML13 is being undertaken by Sterling Oil in partnership with the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, the Akwa Ibom State Government and other oil and gas sector partners, and it is located in Liberty Oil and Gas State Free Trade Zone.

He did so when he visited the oil and gas exploration site within OML13 at Atabrikang in the Eastern Obolo local government area of ​​the state. The governor said seven oilfields have already been developed, with a flow station, storage station and other facilities built within seven months.

The governor said he remains committed to attracting more investment to the state to create jobs.

“My passion is to attract as much investment as possible to create jobs for our many young people in Akwa Ibom State. I am pleased with the current pace of work at the NPDC & NOSL oil and gas exploration at the OML-13 site, Atabrikang fields.

Wanjigi was speaking during an interview with NTV’s Salim Swaleh who asked party presidential aspirant Safina if he was ready to divulge his wealth.

He was often seen in high-end cars in addition to owning a fortress in the outcropping suburb of Muthaiga built for 1 billion shillings.

Institut Le Rosey in Switzerland is not an ordinary school. The educational institution is popularly known as the “School of Kings” for its royal and distinguished alumni and is said to be the most expensive private school in the world where the annual tuition (including boarding) s amounted to 113,000 dollars (15 million shillings).

In our African society, a man who owns cows does not have the right to count the number of cattle he owns. It’s a taboo.

Similarly, I don’t look at my bank account balance to see how much money I have. I don’t look at the value of the land I own either. It’s a practice in Western countries.” Wanjigi dodged the question.

He stressed, however, that the most essential thing for him is that his family’s needs are met.

I am just an ordinary Kenyan. I have two children and as a family they have a roof over their heads, food to eat. I count myself lucky because many people even lack food.

So let’s not focus on how much money someone has, but rather how to help those who lack“, said the businessman.

Wanjigi, who is vying for the presidency on a Safina party ticket, said his administration would bring new ideas, unlike his competitors who have served in government for years.

You cannot use the same strategies and expect different results. They have been in power and the results are the poor quality of life we ​​have now. They should now come out so we can get a fresh pair of hands,, explained Wanjigi.

45% of millennials don’t know their bank account balance https://medielys.com/2022/03/13/45-of-millennials-dont-know-their-bank-account-balance/ Sun, 13 Mar 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://medielys.com/2022/03/13/45-of-millennials-dont-know-their-bank-account-balance/ NEW YORK (StudyFinds.org) – Checking their finances is one of the last things on the minds of these millennials.

NEW YORK (StudyFinds.org) – Checking their finances is one of the last things on the minds of these millennials. A survey examining how 2,000 millennials manage their money reveals that the average young adult spends almost 150 hours more per year browsing social media than monitoring their finances!

It’s not the only activity they seem to prioritize before their money – or lack thereof. They are also more likely to play with their pets or search for a new TV show to air than to check their money weekly.

In fact, being on top of their finances comes last on a list of activities millennials spend time doing, including deciding what to eat for dinner or tending to their plants.

Set it and forget it

Finances seem to be a touchy subject for millennials, with more than a quarter of respondents admitting that they only check their bank account balance once a week (27%). Almost half are unsure of the amount of money currently in their bank account (45%).

Conducted by OnePoll in partnership with Upwise, the survey found that the ease of making payments automatically can contribute to lack of awareness about their finances. Millennials use their cellphones, tablets or computers to log an average of five monthly bills into “autopay” – an automatic payment system used to track monthly costs.

More than half of respondents who use this feature admit that they rely on “auto-pay” to pay their bills (57%) because of its convenience (45%), it saves them money ( 39%), or because they worry less about late payments (38%). Four in five millennials say they’re more likely to make impulse purchases because they’re confident “auto-pay” will keep track of their bills (81%).

This may explain why millennials seek greater control over their finances. In fact, more than half (51%) say they would feel more in control of their finances if they relied less on “automatic payment”, and three-quarters don’t want to rely on others for l ‘money.

Pandemic debt is piling up for millennials

Four in five also think it’s important to develop good financial habits at a young age, but it’s not too late for those looking to gain more control over their finances now.

“Taking control of your finances isn’t just about meeting your monthly expenses; it’s also about taking a proactive role in managing and developing healthy financial habits, Jenn Kischell, vice president of Upwise at MetLife, said in a statement. “People tend to underestimate their expenses, especially when using autopay. This is why it is essential to regularly carry out an overall assessment of your finances.

To help track debt and savings, people are turning to financial planners (50%), financial apps (48%) or trying to stick to a good old-fashioned monthly budget (45%) . Sixty-two percent of people who experienced increased debt during the pandemic saw an additional $10,000 added to their debt, compared to 54% of respondents who saw that amount added to their savings.

“Managing your finances doesn’t have to be as daunting or overwhelming as it seems,” adds Kischell. “Tools like financial wellness apps can be a powerful resource to help take action that leads to confidence and a greater sense of control. Everyone deserves to feel good about their finances, small steps can help free up that next dollar and the good news is that it’s never too late to start.

Every payment you make is protected by your personal UPI PIN and should not be shared with anyone else.

If you’re like most people, money in your checking account is what you use to pay your bills, from your daily coffee shopping to your rent and car payments. That’s why it’s important to have a clear idea of ​​what your balance entails, even if that means checking your account every day.

Get into a rhythm

If your monthly expenses and income are predictable, you may not need to review your checking account daily, but rather every few days. Likewise, if you have a big cushion in your checking account, you can probably get away with checking it out once a week or even once every two weeks.

But you should actually check your checking account balance every day if the following scenarios apply to you:

  • Your income is variable and/or you are not paid on a regular schedule
  • Your bills fluctuate a lot from month to month
  • You live paycheck to paycheck and usually don’t have extra money in your checking account beyond what your monthly bills cost
  • You are about to make a larger than usual purchase

If you don’t know exactly what your checking account balance looks like, a few things can happen. First, you might splurge on something you think you can afford, only to realize you’ve found yourself with insufficient funds to pay your essential bills.

Additionally, you might find yourself in a scenario where you swipe your debit card or make a payment from your checking account when you don’t have the funds to cover it. In this situation, one of two things will happen: either the transaction will not go through, or it will go through, but you risk overdraft charges.

Many banks allow customers to transact even when their current accounts do not have sufficient funds. But usually they don’t do it to be nice. Rather, they charge expensive overdraft fees for this privilege. While it’s worth noting that some banks have removed overdraft fees, or at least reduced them, it’s not a universal practice.

Knowing how much money you have in your checking account is important, even if it means taking time each day to check your account. In fact, it’s a good idea to make checking a checking account part of your daily routine. You may decide to quickly check your balance just before you start your workday. Or maybe it’s something you do at night before bed. Go with what suits you best.

Give yourself a financial cushion

As a general rule, it’s a good idea to keep some extra money in your checking account beyond what your monthly bills cost. That way, if there’s a month where those bills go up, you’ll be less likely to find yourself in a situation where you overdraw your account.

Another solution is to have a good amount of money in your savings account. If you keep your savings and checking accounts at the same bank, you will usually be able to transfer money from one account to another instantly. So if you find yourself in a situation where you need to pay a $300 bill in your checking account but only have $100, you may be able to immediately withdraw $200 from your savings to cover this cost and avoid unnecessary costs.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Eastern Kentucky University has temporarily changed the eligibility guidelines for recording the university’s account balance.

Before the pandemic, EKU students had to have a student account balance of less than $1,000 in order to enroll in classes for the next semester. Due to the nature of the pandemic, the temporary change allowed students to enroll in classes even if their account balance was over $1,000.

Now that EKU public health, safety and employment positions are more stable as the pandemic lingers, the original directive that account balances be less than $1,000 to register will be reinstated for each student after the fall 2022 enrollment period.

This gives students the remainder of the spring semester and the summer period to get their account balance below $1,000 so they can apply for specific scholarships and find ways to reduce their account balance.

The Financial Aid Office and the Student Accounts Office, which are located in the Whitlock Building on campus, offer assistance to students who need advice on additional options for reducing their student account balance.

Students who need help paying their tuition can apply for scholarships at
