    OPEC+ may raise oil output so market doesn’t overheat, Kazakhstan says

    OPEC+ may have to raise oil production to avoid market overheating, OPEC+ member Kazakhstan said on Wednesday.

    It said that, as the group of oil producers meets amid U.

    S. pressure to add barrels to the market while most members have already exhausted their output potential.

    “We have always said that the preferred price corridor is $60-80 per barrel.

    “ Today the price is $100. So we might have to raise output to avoid overheating,’’ Kazakh energy minister, Bolat Akchulakov told reporters.

    The market has been largely expecting OPEC+ to keep output steady or opt for a slight increase.

    Three OPEC+ sources said that they still saw little chance for an output policy change when commenting on the Kazakh minister’s statement.

    The United States has put OPEC leaders Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates under pressure to pump more oil to help rein in prices boosted by rebounding demand and Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

    However, U.

    S. and Western sanctions on Russia have caused prices of all types of energy to soar, resulting in inflation at multi-decade highs and central bank interest rate hikes.

    OPEC has been increasing output in line with its targets by about 430,000-650,000 barrels per day a month in recent months and has refused to switch to bigger output increases.

    Group sources have cited a lack of spare capacity among members to add more barrels as well as the need for further cooperation with Russia as part of the wider OPEC+ group.

    “It seems unlikely OPEC+ will do anything when it meets later today,’’ said Callum Macpherson from Investec, citing rising concerns about a slowing global economy and a lack of spare capacity.

    “OPEC+ is struggling to meet the levels its production limits have now been raised to,’’ he said, adding that a surprise decision to raise production would put oil under further pressure to fall below $100 per barrel.

    Benchmark Brent oil futures fell by more than $1 earlier on Wednesday to trade just above $99 per barrel.

    The meeting on will discuss production policies from September and possibly onwards starting from 1130 GMT.

    By September, OPEC+ was meant to have wound down all of the record production cuts it implemented in 2020 after the pandemic slashed demand.

    By June, however, OPEC+ was almost 3 million barrels per day below its quotas as sanctions on some members and low investment by others crippled its ability to boost output.  

    Only Saudi Arabia and the UAE were believed to have some spare capacity left to increase production.

    French President, Emmanuel Macron has said he had been told that Saudi Arabia and the UAE had very limited ability to increase oil production.

    Abuja residents decry hike in bread price

    Some residents of Kubwa on Wednesday decried the high cost of bread, one of Nigeria’s staple food.

    The residents who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria said it was unfortunate that `bread which used to be poor man’s food now seems to be only for the rich’.

    Mr Alabi Oluwatosin, the acting manager of American Snacks, located at Kubwa, attributed the increase in the price of bread to inflation.

    “Many citizens depend on bread for their daily survival unfortunately due to it is becoming increasingly expensive for them.

    “One of the challenges we the bakers face today is dealing with the prices of goods in the market.

    “We now buy flour at the cost of N28, 000 per bag as against N22, 000 per bag last year.

    “The prices of other ingredients used in baking bread such as sugar, butter, yeast and milk are on the high side, ” he said.

    According to him presently bakers were not making profits as inflation erodes what should have been their profits.

    Miss Deborah Oluwafemi, a consumer, told NAN at the present rate of increase in price, bread will soon be out of the reach of civil servants.

    “An average loaf of bread costs N800 compared to when it was sold at N400. It is not nice, the economy is bad and people’s salaries aren’t increasing,” she said.

    Mr Mmerichukwu Otuechere, a baker told NAN that his business had not been moving well following the continued rise in the cost of baking materials.

    “Honestly, we in the bakery industry are not finding things easy.

    We are therefore calling on the Federal Government to come to our aid “Many bakers will soon go out of business due to high cost of materials we use in baking.

    “I used to make some profits in this business but now I can hardly recover my expenditure after sales, not to talk of making profits.

    “ Before I employed five persons in this business but now I retained only two persons because I cannot afford their salaries,” Otuechere said.

    Sri Lanka is to submit a debt-restructuring plan to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) aimed at finalising a bailout package to emerge from an ongoing economic crisis.

    The country President, Ranil Wickremesinghe, said this on Wednesday.

    “It is our expectation to conclude the staff-level negotiations expeditiously and successfully,’’ Wickremesinghe said.

    He said this in reference to negotiations with the IMF while addressing a new parliamentary session.

    Wickremesinghe was elected by parliamentary vote on July 20, to fill the vacancy left by Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who fled the country amidst public protests.

    “The finalisation of the debt-restructuring plan has commenced in collaboration with Lazard and Clifford Chance, who are international financial and legal experts,’’ the president said.

    He said the plan would be submitted to the IMF and negotiations with the countries who provided loan assistance, as well as private creditors, would begin to arrive at a consensus.

    The Sri Lankan government temporarily suspended foreign debt payments on April 12 due to a lack of foreign reserves for essentials.

    The country’s economic crisis led to severe fuel, medicine and food shortages across the country, resulting in long queues.

    Protests by the public followed, eventually leading former prime minister Mahinda Rajapaksa to step down on May 9, followed by his brother, the former president, on July 13. Protesters have vowed to continue their campaign against Wickremesinghe as well, as they consider him an ally of the Rajapaksas.

    The new president has meanwhile invited all the parties in parliament to form a unity government to try to end the shortages.

    Sanctions wait judges who fail to submit quarterly returns, NJC panel

    The Sub-Committee of Zone ‘C’ of the Corruption and Financial Crimes Cases Trial Monitoring Committee (COTRIMCO) says sanctions awaits judges in Oyo, Ogun, Osun, Ekiti and Ondo  states who fail to submit quarterly returns.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the COTRIMCO  was set up by the former Chief Justice of Nigeria to monitor cases in court and interact with the designated judges handling corruption and financial crimes cases following continuous complaints from the public that the judiciary is responsible for delays in the trial of corruption and financial crimes cases.

    This is contained in a statement signed by the Zone ‘C’, made up of Oyo, Ogun, Osun, Ekiti and Ondo  sub-committee on Wednesday in Ibadan.

    The sub-committee informed judges that there was a need for them to quarterly submit their returns with strict adherence to the template submitted to them as the submitted returns would be assessed quarterly by the committee at the plenary.

    NAN reports that the sub-committee has Justice Munta Abimbola (chairman), Onah Owoka(Esq), secretary, Dr Garba Tetengi, SAN, Mr A.

    Mahmoud, Soyi Oye(Esq) and the NJC.

    The committee toured the states in the zone in view of accusations by the public that the Judiciary was responsible for the delays in the trial of corruption and financial crimes cases.

    The committee interreacted with designated judges handling corruption and financial crimes cases on the reason for the delays.

    On their findings, the panel said members received complains of insufficient Prosecution Counsel from the EFCC as 10 prosecutors covered the Five States in the zone.

    The panel also said it found out that handwriting experts were scarce.

    “The judges also complained that witnesses, exhibits, number of SANs that are usually briefed to represent the accused in corruption and financial crimes cases do not help matters,” it stated.

    The panel also said in a nutshell, members observed that delays in such cases were caused by all parties involved in cases.

    The panel called for synergy among parties.

    The panel assured the judges that the issues they raised would be brought before the plenary for consideration.
