Politics / Re: A Pie Chart Showing The Pattern Of Buhari's Appointments by abbey621(m): 2:00am
mmsen:


Go to Uyo, Enugu or Calabar and then visit Katsina, Kaduna or Kano and ask me again if the south developed more than the north.

The problem with the appointments is that they are people who do not appear to have done a great deal in the private sector prior to being in government - too many are career civil servants. If this government is about change why are the same elements being reused?

It does not help matters that they seem to come from the most underdeveloped part of the country - if they are such effective administrators why have they not pulled their own section(s) of the country out of the toilet?

If you are honest with yourself, you would realize that the South South, South East and the North are all underdeveloped. Let's move on from that, what I'm particularly concerned about is the bold part of your statement. I suggest you look at the appointments again and research into their respective job functions. You'll see clearly that experience in the private sector is not needed at all. I would think personal traits such as honesty, sharpness and so on are much more important. What people like you are failing to realize is that the president is going to surround himself with those he can trust, forget about federal character and ethnicity!
Career / Re: HELP !!!!!!!!!!! Right Abuse By Employers. by abbey621(m): 4:03pm On Aug 28
It's too early to start shouting over 1 month's payment. This is 9ja and employers owe money all the time. It would be very hard for you to mount any legal challenge against them as other companies had set a precedence for cases such as this. They say payback is a b*tch, I would advise you to compile a list of all your clients and sabotage their business. Seriously you have the experience and home field advantage on your side, all you have to do is find a similar job with a competitor, poach all the clients to the new job and smile!

Bunch of disgusting crybabies! Does appointment = performance? Let the man appoint anyone he likes, if they don't perform then you can begin crying but if they perform I see no reason why ethnicity should be a factor. I'll take a stranger who does his or her job diligently over a lazy brother or sister any day, anytime!

It just goes to show how clueless of a nation we are. I was hoping to hear things like the appointees are not qualified either by inexperience or morality but seems majority of Nigerians are all about ethnic or tribal sentiments. During the last administration things were pretty much in favor of the South but did we grow as a nation? Did the South actually developed more than the North? If the answer is no then we can see that it's not by appointment, it's by character! Tribalism and hatred has thrown some of you into a state of blindness and I'm afraid there's no light at the end of the tunnel for people like that in this world. I actually applaud the president for the appointments so far, looking deep into each appointee's profile it's easy to see that PMB is building a team he can trust, a team not guided by religion or ethnicity but by ethics and high work rate. My advice to all you wailers is to broaden your horizon and stop this ethnic biasness in order to prosper in life!

Tell me you are joking. There is a reason they are called INVESTMENTS. That's why some people are rich and some are poor. Nobody said it's easy. If it were that easy, everybody would be rich. Suffer now and enjoy later.

One of the factors responsible for investment failures is unrealistic target/expectation. Apart from my MBA and working for one of the best companies in the financial sector, I've also ventured into many businesses and the lesson learnt was that never invest your survival money into any business. I know it sounds confusing but trust me, your investment money should not be based on the money you need for your day to day survival, this would ensure that if the investment fails you won't contemplate suicide grin grin

I would have loved to see Hausas, Yorubas and other ethnicity condemning the president instead of an obvious bigot/ethnic induced dramatization, seems some people are still licking their wounds after their papa was voted out cheesy cheesy. Buhari scorecard so far for me is 3/10, he has a lot of work to do. Let's see how the next 100 days plays out!

That is exactly the way I felt when I got Executive trainee job with a bank in 2001. I resumed 24th December, 2001. Here are my unsolicited advise for you. You don't need to pay a dime for it. Get the book The richest man in Babylon. It major advise is to save 10 percent of your income, invest another 10 percent and give a tithe of 10 percent. I will advice you invest 40 percent of your income in anything that will give you financial freedom and landed property is the best for now. You don't need to go to Lekki go to Mowe Ofada redeem. Intact if I were you I will invest little in electronics, phones etc because they change with time. It reminds me of my BlackBerry Bold 1. Brand new one then cost N110,000 today it is less than 10k. That money can get me an hacter of land in Ibadan 8 plot then and today I would have resold it at least 300k per plot 7 years after. Have an alternative plan called plan B. Wish best of luck

Nice advice but very unlikely! 40% of your income on investments? Isn't that a little high? Let's assume the man makes 150k a month, 40% of that is 60K, he's left with 90K. Oh right you also advice saving 10% of income so he's left with 75k. Let's not forget tithe, he now has 60k left, food and transportation would take at least half of that leaving him with 30k. With 30K he'll give family, girlfriend or wife, pay for recharge cards, probably want to buy an extra pair of pants and/or shirt, Nepa and water bill remains. This is just my own little analysis, I didn't even factor in taxes, faaji money and other miscellaneous grin grin grin
Celebrities / Re: Your Lover Is Giving You Good Sex Doesn't Mean He Is Good – Tonto Dikeh by abbey621(m): 6:59pm On Aug 25
Well said Tonto! In all you do don't forget moderation. Finding a balance to life is the key to happiness. Some guys spend their life thinking about nothing but sex then find themselves in their late 30s to 40s with no accomplishments, while other guys preoccupied themselves with making money and neglect their woman physically. There's no such thing as a perfect human being some just try more than others, as far as I know we are all f*cking learners!!!!

Gullible Nigerians would actually believe this man made sense but a simple compare and contrast would suffice. What was the economy like in 2007? What was it like when GEJ left office? GEJ might have truly tried his best but it was clear as daylight that his best was not good enough to weed out corruptiuon. If Buhari should pursue the same path of mediocrity then we would kindly vote him out in 2019, gone are the days of suffering and smiling!

Nigerians and effizzy, may God help us all! Personally driving a Ferrari or such exotic cars in Nigeria is senseless due to poor road conditions and other factors. If I want to spend a huge amount on a vehicle, I would buy an SUV with upgraded suspension, 4*4 capabilities and all. Imagine going thru some roads such as Badagry area, Okokomaiko and so on, the car go pieces grin grin grin

Hahahha man you are ignorant. So you are saying people can make any type of comment insofar the comment does not warrant to peoples death right? For your information people do actually lose their jobs and in some cases subjected to criminal trial after making inciting or racial comments like the one the infamous Oba made. Long serving skysports analysts richard keys and Andy Gray lost their jobs as a result of racial comment they made about a female lines woman. John Terry was stripped of the England captaincy and fined heavily after making racial comment about Antoine Ferdinand. He was even charged for criminal prosecution. If you so much believe in this freedom of speech, how about you going on air threatening to kill the president. If you are not picked then I will agree with you that truly freedom of expression do confer on us the right to say anything we want.

Another ignoramus pretending to know it all. Why do Nigerians like you love mixing apples with oranges? Why must you come up with bogus analogies to justify your position? You mentioned John Terry, Andy Gray and son but what you failed to realize is that these people were working and as part of their job descriptions they are not allowed to say or do certain things. The Oba is under no such restriction and neither is the average person. You mentioned threats against the president, are you seriously comparing negative statements made about a race to actually threatening the President of a nation? Are you really that naive? In your attempt to prove your intelligence, you've actually displayed your naivety. Like I said earlier when we remove sentiments from our reasoning, we would all be better off. Show me the place in the Nigerian Constitution which criminalizes the Oba's actions and I'll be a believer, till then kindly keep shut!

The beauty of free speech is that it can be negative or positive, you can agree with it or disagree but it should not be restricted. We've seen politicians said worse things and they were not crucified, you people need to get over yourselves! Personally I feel the Oba was wrong to make such a statement but expecting the ICC to sanction him is just plain ridiculous!

I hope you are okay upstairs? Who told you freedom of speech guarantees you the liberty to threaten people? For your information your freedom of expression is limited when it threatens other peoples right

What rights were violated? Did anyone get hurt or died as a result of the Oba's statement? These are just some of the questions the ICC would look into when determining whether to take this joke seriously! I know you are used to living in a world where you can't express yourself freely but I repeat what the Oba said is still part of his fundamental right to free speech, now if people were actually killed as a result of the statement then there would be a case for inciting violence or "genocide" as some of your comrades put it.

I think this country has more pressing issues than focusing on an Oba's negative statement. It's a joke to think that the ICC would even prosecute such cases. Last time I checked there's something called freedom of speech and since the Oba's position is not an elected position, I see no reason why we continue to make a mockery of ourselves. Many of you might feel what the Oba said was hateful and quite frankly I feel the same way but is there a law that prohibits free speech or are we just letting our sentiments control us?

irsakant:
You are somewhat bias! You should ask or probe "what they had used their received Allocations from GEJ government for? Know that some governors did not owe like Ekiti. All of the governors got their Allocations,but some owed their workers! So they should be PROBED if you know that past government was corrupt. So set the pace, and probe the said debted governors to account for the money received.

Once again you are focusing on the wrong thing! Probing can come later, what was imminent is the welfare of those workers who were not paid. It's easy to complain when you've eaten and you are not being evicted by your landlord but if you put yourself in the shoes of those workers you'd realize how dire the situation was. I have first hand experience because a cousin of mine was faced with this predicament, within a couple of months his life turned upside down. So please excuse me if I'm a little biased, I believe when there's life there's hope and what Buhari did saved a lot of families from starvation, probing can come later jaare!

Any relief sought and gotten in a hurry is only temporal and will surely back fire!!!

Not in this case bro, a government that can't rescue it's citizens from starvation and hunger is not fit to govern. The States failed and the federal government rescued them, the ultimate victors are the workers who finally got paid. We've seen much more money stolen for extravagant expenses during the previous administration, so I'm actually glad those funds actually did something good for the people. The key now is for Buhari to not relent but work harder to ensure the economy gets back in shape!

Considering the ant-corruption posture of this government, the terms and conditions should have been spelt out and made public. What is in the public domain is that they were given money to pay ''one'' salary twice, with no strings attached. They went ahead to tell the source of funds and that is all they want us to know. If you ask now they will ask you to invoke FOI which will never give you anything. Tax payers are just being scammed or short changed.

You know right from time Nigeria's problem has been corruption and lack of transparency but in this case I don't mind the means as long as the end justifies it. I'm more worried about the workers. I'm worried about the people that have to feed their families, pay for school fees and so on, I just can't imagine how they managed to cope all this while.....

Is there sense in bailing out states? From what? The monies earlier released as salaries, what happened to them? Imagine that even Okorocha that handed over to himself is complaining he met an empty treasury? Who empty am?

You're failing to see the bigger picture! How long should workers continue to suffer? The bailout was done to relieve those who've been suffering from the past few months. I think the States that are bailed out should be made to repay the money like an interest free or low interest loan, this would deter future occurrences. I can't imagine what would have happened to workers if the federal government did not bailout those States.

Why should they be bailed out? Isn't it a result of their careless miscalculations? At times I wonder if we know where our problems are originating from?

It's not the fault of the workers. It's just the same way banks were bailed out in America, they were bailed out because the federal government realized that if this should continue the masses would be the ones to suffer. I fully support the bailout but the federal government must put measures in place to ensure this type of situation does not repeats itself!

Most fools on this thread won't even bother to read the whole article. This is simple politics and common sense would tell you of course the funds came from activities which occurred in 2014. How can a president with less than 3 months in office save such amount? The real question most of you clowns aren't asking is; if the funds were available during GEJ's term why was nothing done to bailout States owing workers salary? Gullible people will only read the headlines and start shouting; that's why some of you are failures in life......SHAME!

There's nothing wrong in altering your CV, I do it all the time and have helped people do the same. What is wrong however is filling your CV with skills and specialization in which you know nothing about. Computational positions such as Accounting, Engineering and so on requires specialized training, depending on the company you could be dealing with over 1,000 accounts. At this point the best thing you can do is to remain confident, almost all companies conduct specialized training to make sure new associates are comfortable with the companies way of doing things, brush up on your accounting and just hope for the best!
