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.

Reserve comments. I dont know if the suggestion will be adopted or not. If it is then you can present your feelings about it. For now, I think miyetti Allah has won and it might be too late reversing the hands of clock....but I wish I can clasp my fingers around the throat of Karimi.

I'm moving a motion for the cancellation/ postponement of the december edition, we've had a lot in our hands this december, least we present a half baked debate of low quality.

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.

its not set in stone that it has to be a debate; a discussion is just as good.

personally, i believe the objective of the monghly exercise has changed from what it was initially proclaimed to be and no one beside maybe jarus really know from one month to next what to expect out of it.

I wonder what's your definition of 'explosive' or 'boring'. But I do know the issue of downsizing the civil service did cause an uproar when it was suggested by Sanusi with people taking sides in the argument.

Bear it in mind that the essence of these debates is to encourage intellectualism, to enlighten the populace and to bring about human empowerment and national development. Any topic that won't achieve such should not be encouraged. Thank you.

That we have redundant civil servants that does nothing is an undebatable fact.
That we have to get rid of these ones and make the service much more efficient is also a fact.
I doubt if peeps were neccesary against the message but the messager itself. That lies the problem then.

U are entitled to ur opinion. However it would be wrong to say that your opinion is undebatable.

Granted we have inefficiency in our civil service, but what we need to do is make the civil service more efficient by removing those lazy ones and replacing them with hardworking and intelligent ones rather than sacking half of the civil servants.

Whether half, three quarters or one third, its immaterial to me as long as dead woods are flushed out completely and efficiency put in play. i dont think we should start debating that.

You've said it the right way! You don't THINK we shld be debating that. You are entitled to ur own opinion, as a matter of fact everybody is.

Saying that downsizing the civil service is undebatable is very wrong and unscholarly

I appreciate ur liberal posture however am not that kind. Dead woods should be uprooted and this may eventually lead to a reduction in the service.
I never said those that want to debate it shouldnt go ahead, i just feel its a waste of time debating the obvious.

Ladies and gentlemen, the debate did finally take place. Demdem trashed it out with Obinoscopy, with Demdem suporting the motion for a downcut in civil service and Obinoscopy against the motion.
Its an in-house debate, no moderator, no judge, no frontpage. The audience are allowed to throw in their comments, questions and most especially, score the debators.
Thanksgrin

Nice response but In the midst of everything else going on at moment, this ranks low on priority and has less direct impact to the social value. We should sponsor topics that has high social visibility.

I want to thank and appreciate Jarus for holding forth thus far as far as the monthly debates are concerned. It's a lot of work i tell you.

I think we should start preparing for the January debates. Pls let's keep the suggestions for this month's topic coming.

What do you guys think about "Should State of Origin be replaced with State of Residence?"
