    Tenants who stop paying the rent and play the system can effectively live in a property rent-free for up to a year-and-a-half, landlords have claimed.

    A number of landlords, who inherited property or are renting out their home after moving back in with their parents, complained about delays in getting determinations from the PRTB, being left without rent but still having to pay mortgages, and tenants ignoring requests to pay arrears.

    The Nigerian millionaire who wants to negotiate with Boko Haram

    Orji-Kalu
    When Orji Uzor Kalu, jet-setting Nigerian businessman and controversial politician is in Abuja, he usually spends most of his time at his sprawling mansion, which is located a few minutes’ drive away from the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, the official residence of Nigeria’s President.

Highflying politicians, senior executives at his conglomerate, diplomats, private bankers and hangers-on typically have to wait for hours to get an audience with the man. When I meet him on a crisp afternoon in May, he’s relaxing his frame on a couch in the dining room, chatting with senior executives from one of his companies.
