Okija_juju: These Yoruba people resoning dey tire person...

Some of them have even started talking about Lagos Laws and Federal laws as if to say Lagos State laws superceeds Federal laws..


Anyways, here is the simple summary of the issue;

1. Is the sale/ownership of firecrackers illegal in Nigeria (under Federal Laws) or even in Lagos (Under State Laws)?!

NO.

2. Was the fire cracker shop illegally located as stipulated in any Federal Law or Lagos State Law?!

NO.

3. Did the shop violate any known federal or Lagos state laws with regards safety or health harzard?!

NO..

4. So on what basis are these Yoruba people calling for the prosecution of the shop owner?!

Absolutely Nothing but cheap Alomo and Amala induced sentiments..




Case closed...


NEXT CASE!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmmm.... Why must everything be: US vs. THEM??

Fashola made some interesting points... Why jeopardize people's safety and destroy properties just because you want to make a few bucks?? Why are people so greedy in Nigeria?? Smfdh... Yet you wonder why your country is a cesspit - go figure! undecided

Bliss4Lyfe: Fashola should ans dat question? Afterall, he is the one choppin the tax money from the business. As long as the imports are not drugs or ammunition or dangerous to liv, then they are legitimate business for a Nigerian.

We want to encourage people to seek an honest living not kidnappers, drug dealers or armed robbery. Perhaps Fashola is tryin to encourage the alternative to a honest living or create poverty and desperation.

Fires happen all over the world and as such his comments are off track. Improve the fire services Fashola...
Did u really read the whole story. Do u have an idea how many buildings got burnt? What if yours was one of them? Wud u still be saying the same thing?and wat has fashola and Tax got to do wit pple dangerously storing fireworks for sale?Think of this and edit ur post please.

Usually in sane countries, people would ask for the heads of the regulatory agencies who failed to protect the people...but in nigeria the sitting governor uses the opportunity to whip up ethnic sentiments.

Before he brought brt busses to lagos...molues were killing people falling into the rivers, etc...such statements did not come from the governor..

The governor has forgotten that the unfortunate event was allowed to happen because one or two of his agencies have failed in their responsibilities....

Anyhow it's always easier to blame than to act

So, regulatory bodies are meant to tell you about health and safety - and that highly inflammable objects are not meant to be stored in a residential area, no The guy who said the average IQ of Nigerians is around 70 is definitely right on the money with that... undecided

No, why can't you blame God as well for not stopping the fire since it happened during Christmas period??

It seems our tribalism has made us to look our tribal leaders as infallible entities as there is nothing in this world that would make us to condemn them because of tribalism.Fashola is a governor and at the same time a Nigerian even though he is Yoruba, so please lets treat this case as a Nigerian affair and call a spade what it is.
Re: Fashola. Must We Do Every Business?” Lagos Fire. by shymexx(m): 7:19pm On Dec 27, 2012
Nah, where's the common sense? Anyone with an IQ higher than 50 should know what to do and what not to do with highly inflammable objects... Keep waiting for people to spoon-feed you - and I bet you wait for shoe manufacturers to tell you how to tie your shoe lace as well.. grin

I mean most people in Nigeria stores petrol which is highly inflammable in residential areas for their generators for heavens sake.

Oh well - perhaps, I need to cite the average IQ of Nigerians again... grin

However, when the same government start coming hard on these people, you lot are going to start screaming tribalism, elitism, high handedness etc.. You can't eat your cake and have it... Get with the programme and act civilised, or get swept away by the wind of change... It's 2013 for crying out loud!!

Since when has shouting ever prevented fash from performing his duties? Or it is because there is no immigrate money to be made by Tinubu? Sorry but your governor just exposed himself as a tribal bigot...this is not expected from a man of his calibre...

Provide adequate environment for people to do business and come down hard on anybody violating...that's all we are asking....stop blaming Igbosi when you fail...

dayokanu: Some people dont care as long as they make the money even if its by selling chalk as paracetamol, Sachet pure water as drip etc
Reminds me when I bought Panadol in Aba in 2001, I saw 2 different chalks inside one sachet.

Na that Aba my friend bought case of Five Alive for his neighbors and the whole neighbors (A whole compound) had diarrhea.See queue for single toilet!
Re: Fashola. Must We Do Every Business?” Lagos Fire. by DaLover(m): 7:43pm On Dec 27, 2012
It took several buildings to fall down in lagos (fash did not blame Yoruba landlords or architects or engineers for wanting to make a quick buck), before he could wake up to his responsibility of ensuring that structures are in live able conditions, even right now we are not sure that the agency charged with doing this is working as it should.....
Such would have lead to a resignation in sane countries, but here the almighty governor blames those he is elected to protect.

Though i am asking that question in light of someone saying u don't need an agency or authority to tell you not to do in some certain things.

Now to answer your question, there are housing management authority, agencies that have housing estates and government environmental agencies that should be responsible for this. If someone is using a residential area for commercial storage of goods then there should be appropriate authority that they can be reported to who can come in to fix this illegality.

Due to our peculiar system of individuals owning residential properties then the landlord of the place should be contacted or they can take the case to the local government to report the illegality. Do you want to tell me now that someone can just convert his house into a commercial storage facility in a well regulated estate like Victoria garden city or the likes without the appropriate authority or the housing agency in charge taking care of this?.

This has nothing to do with any ethnic group but more to do with the hazards that come with this type of business... At least, if you're going to do anything as hazardous as this, it's better to do it that right way, take the necessary precautions, and don't endanger other people's lives and properties just because you want to make a few bucks...

It's just common sense... However, most Nigerians are too greedy...

Yes, they can, many residential building are converted to commercial buildings outside of the master plans in VI, lagos and elsewhere in nigeria, and we see this everyday ...agencies of government fail, hence the government fails...but decides to blame others

Please stay on track, the governor made a very tribal statement, even though he tried to disguise it....
Molue drivers and owners driving rickety vehicles around lagos claiming lives on a daily basis did not get this statement..
People building poorly designed houses collapsing every now and then in lagos did to get this statement

Despite the more law abiding nature of people in London, you still see the government taking pains to mount cameras on the streets of the city....government always stands on guard to make sure that house that run foul pay the price...because human nature is to follow the shortest cut/ path of least resistance....

It would have been better for the governor to come out and admit that the government has failed in its responsibilities, and then state what measures are to be up in place, or what punishment the heads of the monitoring agencies will get etc... Not to blame Igbos in a disguised manner...

So, the fact the the government failed means your actions as a citizen should be illegal, anti social with no personal and civic responsibility?
