But he is still trained to kill. Training that can not be erased. Still on your analogy, a retired carpenter isn't automatically a mechanic.

The difference is that he is guided and limited by the constitution and the National Assembly unlike military regimes where governance is by decrees.

Would you entrust your car repairs to a retired carpenter with a manual?

Your lamentations have just begun.

While I do not support the Emirs admonition, and the trash you cobbled up there is not deserving of a response due to its sheer idiocy, it must be pointed out that it's completely absurd to ignore the 16 years of failed civilian leadership by the South and whine about the current economic situation which was ironically brought about by a core southerner while trying to heap blame on the North.

What makes your hypocrisy stink the most is the fact that you pretend to care for the Nigerian economy while supporting the scAvengers in their economic sabotage.

You can only wail.

This 16yrs rhetoric is becoming stale. How old is Nigeria and which region has ruled Nigeria the most?

If the carpenter is experienced with hammering, and the car's engine requires heavy hammering, and he is guided by dozens of mechanics as well as a strictly enforced repair manual....

I'd definitely give him to fix my car over a quack apprentice that only became a mechanic because his boss died.

What if the issue with the car is the engine or something else that can not be masked by panel beating?

Wouldn't the apprentice with some training and a manual be a safer choice than the retired carpenter with the same manual, in the absence of a professional?

You're just running around in circles with my analogy. You cannot expect good governance from a military regime. QED.

I'm not running around circles. I'm trying to agree with your analogy. But you contradict yourself.
If one can't expect good governance from the military, how can it be expected of ex- military men?

Is the carpenter who overpowered the mechanic, knowing very well that he lacked the knowhow to do his job, to be absolved of blame?

Using your analogy, if a carpenter takes over repair of a car, leaves it a worse condition than when its owner sent it in for maintenance/ repair and then hands it over to a mechanic who is then unable to restore it, who is to blame for the condition of the car?


My friend, opinions are like an asssshole, everyone has it.

WE ALL KNOW THE FIRST CARPENTERS, WHERE THEY COME FROM AND THE MICHIEVOUSNESS BEHIND THEIR ACTIONS. WE KNOW WHO DIVRTED NIGERIA FROM THE PATH OF TRUE FEDERALISM THAT EVERYONE IS CLAMOURING FOR.

Your stance is unclear.
Is it fool-ish or not to have expected good governance from the military alias carpenters?
Re: Northern Nigeria: A Critical Look. A Deep X-ray by fulanmafia: 10:08pm On Aug 13, 2016
Go and read up on the role and powers of the constitution, the principle of separation of powers, the role of the National Assembly and the difference between laws and decrees and you will be less confused.

If you still don't get the essence of the analogy despite spoon feeding the logic to you, then only yourself and the Almighty can help you.

Nothing new. The last election was all about having a president of northern extraction. Nothing more.

All the corruption songs, the boko haram issues and the attack on GEJ was all about having a northern president. Now, they will do everything to support buhari. I've told people that even PDP is not interested in removing buhari.
They feel they can use the skewed election statistics to determine who becomes president.

Nigerians should know what to do. The 2015 election has an Implication that will that either a long time to turn around or a strong force to turn around.

If you like agree, if you like don't.

The issue of carpenter or mechanic is too pedestrian. I have taken you back to when the rain started beating us and if you cannot appreciate that, too bad.

Hun, you can't just abscond like that.
I don't need to read jack. You used an analogy to explain your point. You know very well I understood it and do not require "spoon feeding", hence your attempt to cover holes I uncovered.
You shouldn't speak from both sides of your mouth. End of.

You jumped into a conversation, quoting my post and then proceeding to make an unrelated input. I had to understand where you were coming from.
My intention was to poke holes in that pedestrian analogy.
You may be right but that was not the issue under debate.

Really??

The important thing is that you get my point and it is definitely related to the issue being discussed.

Anyway... I have made my point and that is what matters..

Here is wishing you a fruitful interface.

It wasn't related to the conversation you butted into.

I read all your replies and I have this to say "u be your papa pikin". People make me believe that there is still hope for our youth.

16 years of southern rule is evidently far much better than almost 40 years of northern almajiri, illiterate's rule. FACT! I blame Alimi slaves, the Afonjas for these association with good for nothing almajiris.

you always come online to exhibit your Dan fodio's genetic hubris. you are never rational in your comments.

why do you want Nigeria to remain one by force, despite your reluctance to develop a progressive way of life, shelve religious bigotry and open to dialogue? you love Nigeria but doesn't want to take the rope to peace, prosperity and progress.

silly hypocrites!

Well said Brother, that fanatical, idiotic bigot of a guy has clouded his brain with errors and so he would not accept your proposition.
