|Religion / Re: Photo: What A South African Said About Nigerian Pastors by abbey621(m): 8:11pm|
Truth is bitter. Nigeria still remains one of the most religious countries in the world, yet darkness still dominates. Redeem alone has over 50,000 branches, MFM, Celestial and so on. We have Ansar -ud- deen, ahmadiyya, Quranists and so on, yet the crisis is never ending. How can religious leaders claim to be prolific when they can't even put out the fire in their backyard? I have no doubt that if these religious leaders come together and pray towards saving Nigeria instead of going for personal wealth that Nigeria will see the light again but we all know that ain't gonna happen
|Politics / Re: 54 Incredible Facts That You Might Not Know About Nigeria by abbey621(m): 3:02pm|
4. There are 196 countries in the world and at least one Igbo person from Nigeria lives in every one of them.
If you believe this crap then truly you must be delusional! Can anyone verify this?
|Politics / Re: Fashola’s Trouble Deepens As Group Lists His Sins In Petition To Senate-Naij.com by abbey621(m): 8:59pm On Oct 05|
Out of all the names on the Ministerial list, one would think Fashola would be among the top candidates based on caliber. There's hardly any Governor in the history of Nigeria that would match up to his accomplishment. Even with the overwhelming greed of Tinubu demanding 50% of all income in Lagos State, this man overcame all odds, stuck to his principles and made sure truly that Eko o ni baaje! Sure he's not perfect but Lagos before him was a mess and now after him it is manageable. This man is stubborn, very tactful and knows how to get the job done, he would fit in perfectly with PMB's administration.

Something really bothers me about Nairaland! Why would a guy be writing about behaviors other guys exhibit during or after sexual encounters, I would think the females would have been a better source, don't you think? It's like females writing about how big of a backside they've got
|European Football (EPL, UEFA, La Liga) / Re: I Am Ashamed To Call My Self A Chelsea Fan. by abbey621(m): 12:22am On Oct 04|
@OP You wish you could be a Chelsea fan! I know your type, you have no foundation, you have no history. Jumping from team to team, you ain't got no loyalty but keep in mind true chelsea fans don't tell stories. We remember before Mounrinho when we settled for 8th or 9th place per season, that is why things like this do not faze us. OP- I can only imagine if you were an Arsenal or Liverpool fan, you would have died of hypertension long time ago but no lele, the sky is still blue, our blood is still blue, a season without winning the premership isn't gonna break us

Are you insane? Why would you quote something you do not understand? Ignorant folks like you would just sit down somewhere and think of ways to display your ignorance.
8:20 O ye who believe! Obey Allah and His messenger, and turn not away from him when ye hear (him speak). (8:20) "Obey Allah and obey the messenger, and turn not away from him when ye hear (him speak)."
8:21 Be not as those who say, we hear, and they hear not.
8:22 Lo! the worst of beasts in Allah's sight are the deaf, the dumb, who have no sense (Not physically deaf and dumb but those who can hear yet they chose to be ignorant aka The unbelievers.)

Like I said earlier, it should be balanced. Don't chase success while sacrificing your relationship, at the same time don't focus on your relationship at the detriment of your success. A good man should work with you to achieve a balance and a good woman should not use her career as an excuse to neglect her home!
|Family / Re: Woman! Know Thyself! You Are More Than A Ring And A Title. by abbey621(m): 1:57pm On Oct 02|
That's the good thing about being African my dear, you are only meant to support the man. It is the man that must take up most of the financial responsibilities. I would say man 70%, woman 30%. Even if you had all the money in the world, a right thinking man would still feel uncomfortable not doing his duties as a man
|Family / Re: Woman! Know Thyself! You Are More Than A Ring And A Title. by abbey621(m): 1:50pm On Oct 02|
If that's all you got from my response then you are still disillusioned! How old are you now? Would you still value your personal achievements over having a good home in 10 years? What about 20? The problem with your thinking process is that you focus heavily on how you feel at the present and not really thinking about your future state. I use myself as an example, the things that were important to me at the age of 18 was getting a degree, at the age of 25, it was turning a million into 10 or 20 million and now my main priority is building a family.
|Family / Re: Woman! Know Thyself! You Are More Than A Ring And A Title. by abbey621(m): 1:17pm On Oct 02|
I believe that such backward thinking, rather than creating strong stable marriages only leads to a weak form of it. For a marriage should be between two individuals who know themselves and are complementing each other on their personal growth and development and NOT where one person seeks value and worth in another person or institution
If this is not the dumbest thing I've read then it must surely be the second dumbest! I keep telling feminist that no one is against women being successful but don't drag your man down! Look at the so called advanced countries, what is the divorce rate? What about the rate of single mothers? It is the so called backward thinking that still gives African countries a lower rate of divorce than some of the disillusioned advanced countries. Even the almighty gives a man certain dominance over his woman as long as he treats her fairly, so what's the stress? African women are conditioned to focus on marriage because as Africans we are all about family, all about multiplying and expanding our empire, we realize that while it is the man that usually builds the house, it is eventually the woman that makes it a home. So you might call it backward but what does all the personal accomplishments profit a woman if at the end of the day she can't keep her home? What shall it profit her if she has all the qualities of a boss but none of a good wife and/or mother?

|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: As A Graduate, Can You Work In Restaurant That Pays 80k And Above? by abbey621(m): 1:53pm On Sep 28|
80k is a ridiculous amount to pay a graduate but considering you have no work experience then I would suggest you stop pondering and accept the offer. Use the experience to brighten your CV and before you know it, the doors are opened with bigger opportunities. My first job was at a grocery store, it was beneath me but I took it because it allowed me to meet people and expand my horizons. Unless you have a large amount of savings or your parents are still feeding you, I suggest you take the offer without thinking twice!

|Politics / Re: Captured Boko Haram (ISIS) Leader Can't Pray Or Read Quran (Video) by abbey621(m): 5:40pm On Sep 24|
You people still don't get the point of the video. A true Muslim lives by the Quran, they are enlightened to know what is right or wrong. The video proves that Boko Haram members are mostly illiterates who do not understand the Quran but are rather puppets of some deranged individual or people powered by greed and evil. Can a person validate being a Christian without reading the Bible? Can the Jews validate being Jewish without living by the Torah? the only thing that I'll agree with is that the Islamic religion needs to be revolutionized just as Christianity transitioned from the Dark ages to what it is now. Too many groups out there are twisting religion to bring havoc and chaos into the world, Islam is and will never be the problem, the problem is interpretation because if we should remove Islam, there will be some group somewhere twisting the remaining religions to justify supremacy. God is able to defend himself(There's no compulsion in Islam), real Muslims believe this, it is only the radicals who would spill blood all in the name of religion!
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 12:17pm On Sep 23|
You're still not making sense! Still the same baseless rhetoric! I've probably traveled to more States than you can count and yes 250k house is not much but considering it is not mortgaged it is very much valued! You associate with intelligent people yet you think Southern California is the apex of civilization . My friend you are a nobody, you are not even a true American so stop using "we'" as if na your papa be Abraham Lincoln.
|Romance / Re: I'm In Love With A Married Man. by abbey621(m): 10:13pm On Sep 22|
he explained he impregnated the girl and his family forced him to marry the girl...in short, three kids, two boys and a girl from the woman,(first boy and a twins).
And you believed him, are you mad? No guy can be forced to marry a woman due to pregnancy and he ends up having two more children with the lady. The guy was not forced in anyway, he's a flirt and a very good storyteller!
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 7:58pm On Sep 22|
I don't disagree, everyone knows the problem but only a few can actually solve it.
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 7:48pm On Sep 22|
Of course, after going thru military rule and then starting a young democracy it is expected that the country would need some type of rebuilding. Nigeria is bad right now but remember it is less than 60 years old, America at 164 years old dealt with poverty so bad that people started dying of starvation, they called it the Great Depression. Look at America now!
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 7:40pm On Sep 22|
Without hope there's nothing! It is hope and grace that took an immigrant working at a grocery store all the way to the number 1 Auto insurance company in the US of A, it is that same hope and grace that took him from an associate all the way to management, be hopeful!
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 7:37pm On Sep 22|
I don't understand your question!
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 7:34pm On Sep 22|
That is why a new government was voted in and if they don't perform, they'll be voted out and another one would come in till we get it right, Nigerians are waking up little by little, not like 1999 or 2007 when majority of voters were clueless.
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 7:17pm On Sep 22|
And there's nothing wrong with being an immigrant, almost all my families are here in the States. Dreams are easy to achieve if you believe, it's all about God directing you and favor finding you......
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 6:41pm On Sep 22|
Every country has its ups and downs, most of the defects with Nigeria is because of poverty, with money things seems a lot brighter. I have many friends from wealthy families and when they come to visit me in the U.S, they spend heavily and I'm always amazed! This type of people have made 9ja their paradise and are enjoying their life. I look at myself and realize I spend more time at work than anywhere else, for some they enjoy it but for me the entrepreneurial spirit in me is screaming to be free. I mentioned having a maid, a gateman and a driver but you took it as being an oppressor, you really have to change your thinking! You should see it as providing employment for the unemployed, in Africa labor is cheap, it's not about oppressing but paying for services. I wouldn't be able to afford that in the US of A! You also mentioned 365 days of power supply, I can have that too in 9ja, I'm a big believer of solar and alternative energy. You mentioned safety but fail to realize God is the ultimate protector, I grew up in Mushin, schooled in Ijebu, served in Borno, I was safe throughout. There's no place like home my guy
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 6:32pm On Sep 22|
You call the US a tolerant society You're more daft than the average American! A country where majority of the society believes all Muslims are terrorists, a country where racism still exists deep within the confines of every society and last but not least a country trying to force gay rights on every developing country out there including Nigeria. No, the U.S is not tolerant, the people are highly intolerant. The recent issue with Ebola taught me so much, majority of Americans shouting close the borders, send the Africans back to their country, yea very tolerant
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 6:25pm On Sep 22|
Oya clap for yourself, in your eyes you've actually said something reasonable . It's people like you with nothing that usually make the loudest noise, I stay in a $250,000 house in a nice neighborhood but it doesn't mean I'm not aware of good, hard working people who live in poor communities due to the hard economy so your premise of people like that being a dredge to society is not only whack but moronic! You stay in Southern California and you are shouting, your state is in a deep mess, it's broke and suffering from drastic drought so if I were you I wouldn't brag too much . Finally, you called me a visa lottery winner JJC, why would I play visa lottery when both my parents have been U.S citizens for over 20 years, my people perish for lack of wisdom, get sense my broad, get sense!
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 4:45pm On Sep 22|
Yes America is great until you realize no matter how much you want to believe that you are one of them you are not cos there's really no place like home. Yes I make a lot of money but in reality it is chicken change compared to what I could be making in 9ja as an entrepreneur. You mentioned that all amenities are working but you forgot that it's not free. Maybe it's the fact that I'm an Aries but I just don't like when a system is designed to take advantage of people; social security is a scam, insurance is mostly rip-off and seriously 7k just to give birth, ridiculous! This is exactly what the American system was designed for, you make money but spend it all in the US. Over 80% of Americans can't boast of 10k in savings, that's just a measly 2 million naira and yet people buy large houses and so on. The smart people in America are those able to take advantage of the system and invest wisely, those able to use the tools around them wisely, this is where being an African has its advantages. God willing, in the next 10 years I plan on investing heavily on real estate in Nigeria, beefing up my savings and finally saying good riddance to corporate America(Monday to Friday 8AM to 6PM is stressing me out). In Nigeria I can truly live like a king and with continuous income, I can enjoy it for years to come, I can afford a maid or two, a gateman and a driver and it all won't cost me more than what I'm paying for insurance per month. In 9ja, I can own my own company and truly impact people's lives. I can be all that I can be and more; in America I'm just a puppet, making money but not really living! Salah is coming up yet the Mofos expect me to manage my department regardless. I don't know about you but life is too short to be limited, America is just a stepping stone for me to get to my final destination, it will and cannot ever be called home!
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 4:08pm On Sep 22|
Good for you but I doubt if your pay would make my eyes water. I just completed my second Masters in the USA, I work for a fortune 50 company(State Farm), just got my citizenship this year, make over 70,000 dollars after taxes and I have a 780 credit score, so please spare me the rhetoric! The question I asked was not about your specific situation but in general. Would you rather be poor in America or rich in 9ja? If 9ja was so terrible, you would be inclined to choose the first option wouldn't you?
|Travel / Re: Which Country Would You Rather Live Apart From Nigeria? by abbey621(m): 3:19pm On Sep 22|
I hate to argue with you, so let me ask you a question and be honest with me. Would you rather be poor in America or rich in 9ja? The answer would determine if 9ja is truly as bad as you make it out to be
