Jarus: Topic please. Saturday, December 29 is it.

Debaters/discussants and topic up for suggestion. The Igbo topic has been discarded.

yeeeeehhhhhh!!! cheesy. my favorite mod of the century - jarus.

lets discuss the oil coast people. a tribute to them and their land and the way forward to address their grievances. they have some serious legitimate concerns, most of which is not even reported in news.

to my igbo brothers, i am not a fan of your war complaints but id be glad to share in any discussion relating to healing. without being condescending, there is no doubt you need plenty of that.

Athens and the Igbo traditional political system

How about this: Is the Federal Civil Service OverPopulated? Should they be downsized?

Obino, am an admirer of your comments. However, am pained greatly by your lack of contributions on Igbo topics. Do you not want Igboland to move forward?.

grin Of course I want the best for my tribe. I try my best to engender progress, unity and love among my Igbo brothers in the things I do in real life. However the tribal insults on most tribal topics here on NL irritates me. Some unintelligent nlers just throw insults and trolls on tribal topics just because they aren't from the tribe been addressed by the topic. All thoße must stop.

However I'll do my best to contribute in my own little way on topics concerning my tribe in the nearest future. Regards

This topic is not appealing jor. I for one ain't interested. Finishing the year with such a boring topic after two earlier explosives isn't the way to go.
Why not try this:

Seun's decision to cancel hall of shame thread on politics section; wise or daft decision. undecided

That's more like it.

Other potential topics could be:
Should states have 100% control of the natural resources located in their domain?

Should Nigerian diasporeans be given the constitutional right to vote?

Should Nigeria be a 2 party democracy or a multi-party one?

I thought part of your goal with this project is to increase awareness on national politics. There are many discussions in NASS that directly or indirectly impact lives in society. Too often we are reactive and only complain when we begin to feel the bite and pain of the laws passed in NASS. We ought to know ahead of time how a proposed bill will change our way of life and talk to it proactively. Our voice may or may not influence an outcome but If we develop this habit as a society it adds value to our total sense of civic responsibility.

Has anyone heard about HB.11.10.130 of 2012?

This House Bill is to setup a commission authorized with statutory powers for forced acquisition of land territories that will be designated "National Grazing Route". This bill was sponsored by Karimi Sunday, a member representin Yagba, Kogi State.

This grazing route is a reservation for certain qualified pastoralists. It is not open to all Nigerians and encroachment or unlicensed use can be a violation of law.

We need to discuss issues like this. You can make it a debate or discussion, thats up to you. This is just one of several insulting and offensive bills being proposed by members but I wanted to present this as an alternative idea to debating the number of civil servants on payroll.

WTF are you talking about? This is one of the most sensible bills introduced this year. Why don't you feel insulted when you are able to drive on roads because you are licensed to do so, but Fulani herdsmen who do not drive do not have access to the same roads? abeg make we hear word.
