|Religion / Re: What Is The Purpose Of Life? The Most Important Question by bioye(m): 5:29pm On Jun 27|
I like Olenzy's comment even though it's religious. But I totally disagree with donnffd's response even though he's not.
Does the totality of life on earth or anywhere else have a purpose? Maybe not. What about human beings?
It's a matter of perspective. I believe that my purpose in life is to be as happy as I can be whatever it takes to achieve maximum fulfillment. So that if I'm lucky enough to reminisce on my dying bed about my life, I would be content without regret. Also, I believe that by changing the world substantially before we go, we never truly die. And there are many ways to achieve that. You could raise children you'd be proud of. You could fight a cause to its logical conclusion. You could use your talent to create inventions that touch lives.
Pain, sadness, regret and the like are not enjoyable for most of us so why not choose something better?
Death? We should learn to love death. And we should be willing to die for the right reason. Life is not worth living when you have the fear of death.
|Career / Re: How Do I Save And Invest From My Salary? by bioye(m): 9:13am On Jun 22|
To be financially independent, you must set goals, be disciplined, continue to educate yourself in skill and wealth creation, and imbibe the culture of delayed gratification.
1. Spend less than you earn.
2. Try to save as much as 30% of your salary every month.
3. Engage in continual financial education.
4. For starters, invest in fixed deposits, bonds and stock market (constantly study how these work and get a mentor).
5. As your money grows, move into safe affordable land and transport.
6. Eventually, start building small businesses with trusted partners.
7. Borrow to invest. But make sure the return on your investment is higher than the interest on your loan.
8. Meanwhile, remember to set goals of what you need the money for, how much you need and when you need it.
9. If you continue to improve your financial education and maintain your discipline, you won't need to work again in 10 years time as your money would be working for you autopilot.

I seem to agree with you. The speed at which the data is depleting does not make any sense. I normally use barely 400MB's a day but now I'm consuming more that 2GB without downloads!

|Education / Re: A Housemaster Injures SS3 Student In Ogun State(graphic Photos) by bioye(m): 10:31am On Apr 19|
The comments of some posters here who see this act as no big deal surely bothers me. Either these posters have been so thoroughly abused in their short lifetimes or they are perpetrators of similar acts. How can a school employee inflict any form of bodily injury on a student under any circumstances and you'd see it as justifiable? At the minimum, such occurrences should be investigated and whoever is found culpable be dealt with accordingly.
Sadly, we see events like this happen everyday where the military, police, nscdc officials and others abuse and murder several civilians while many Nigerians justify their actions. Extra-judicial killings are therefore praised and not prosecuted until a graver one happens. We need to once again find our humanity, be our brother's keepers and realise that until we un-apologetically enforce the rule of law, this country will never see sustained development.
|Investment / Re: Nigerian Stock Exchange Market Pick Alerts by bioye(m): 3:03pm On Apr 18|
I guess I'll have to agree with you 100% on that.
|Education / Re: EVA ADELAJA:Govt Removes Principal, Deputy, Four Teachers For ‘assaulting’ Pupil by bioye(m): 1:46pm On Mar 29|
Once again, I give it to the Lagos State Government. Under AMBODE, I see what I wish we could see at the Federal Level.
Meanwhile, it is so HEARTBREAKING that over the years, most of us have allowed ourselves to be treated like lesser beings and animals. We believe that the police and the military have the right to abuse and kill civilians at will (Imagine so many Nigerians justifying the killing of hundreds of civilians in Zaria by the military because a military chief was denied passage). In fact, many of us engage in abusive acts against others on a regular basis because INPUNITY has become the order of the day. Our Governments must realise that by focusing on Enforcement of the Rule of Law and Strengthening of Institutions, the majority of problems facing us in this country would become past tense.

|Family / Re: Photos Of Two Patients Caught While Having S*x In Lagos Hospital by bioye(m): 10:04am On Dec 11, 2015|
I'm interested about where the law stands regarding sex in a public hospital; and distribution of this kind of pictures through popular media. I sincerely think the patients should weigh their legal options critically as this may fall under extra-judicial prosecution and defamation of character.

|Family / Re: Help!!! My Host Is Sexing A Minor... What Should I Do???? by bioye(m): 11:37am On Feb 25, 2015|
It could be love. For instance, Tuface started dating his current wife when she was just 15 and they are happily married with kids today. It's like sayin a 16 year old in university should not date a classmate who is older. How realistic is that? Even the Nigerian constitution allows girls under 18 to be married. By the way, what's the big deal with a 16 year old being active? If she was doing it with a 17 year old, would you call it a crime? No!
You see, hypocrisy is quite pervasive among Nigerians. In fact, how many of you males can claim you have never slept with a girl under 18? How many of you girls can truthfully say that you didn't start before 18?
Oga changes, life is best understood backwards . Exercise patience, stop being holier than thou and mind your fvcking business!

|Politics / Re: Bankole Defects To SDP, We're Unmoved - PDP by bioye(m): 12:04pm On Jan 07, 2015|
Seconded. Don't underestimate SDP. Make e no go do you like film trick. Amosun's APC is facing many challenges. More than half of Ogun APC officeholders and supporters have defected to SDP with their godfather Osoba. The slogans in Ogun state today are AMG (Amosun Must Go) and AIG (Amosun Is Gone). Civil servants despise him. Students want him out at all costs. Market women are complaining because he has demolished markets and is yet to build new ones though he has built massive roads in half the state. And people in his government complain he is a dictator in a democrat's skin. PDP on the other hand has been completely hijacked by Kashamu the druglord who singlehandedly handpicked all candidates for 2015 leaving Daniel, Kuye, Bankole and 9 out of 12 guber candidates out in the cold.
SDP, on the other hand, is quietly receiving defectors day by day and is free of the baggage of the status quo - a fresh new beginning. With Osoba as the leader, Bankole as guber candidate and Amosun's defected deputy as Bankole's running mate, it keeps getting better by the day.
|Politics / Re: Dimeji Bankole Kicked Out Of Ogun Governorship Race 24hrs To Primary by bioye(m): 9:02pm On Dec 08, 2014|
Those of you who call Bankole a thief, please point to one property or evidence anywhere otherwise you are just lazy illiterate empty barrels. And when Bankole becomes Governor of Ogun state, it's the same cheapstakes like you that would be singing his praises.
He who laughs last laughs best.
|Politics / Has Bankole Been Selected As Ogun PDP Governorship Candidate? by bioye(m): 5:18am On Dec 05, 2014|
FROM SEGUN OLATUNJI, Abeokuta
The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may have finally picked the former speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole as the consensus governorship candidate of the party in Ogun State.
Our correspondent gathered that Bankole was selected as the PDP flag bearer for the state after several hours of deliberations between the PDP national leadership and the party’s stakeholders in the state.
The development has however, sparked a fresh row as the Chairman of the Organisation and Mobilisation Committee of the PDP in the South West, Prince Buruji Kashamu and the Ogun State chapter of the party said no such agreement had been reached.
It was however, learnt that the meeting where Bankole was picked as the party’s consensus flag bearer in the 2015 election held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Wednesday night and was chaired by the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu as well as other national leaders of the party.
The meeting, the source disclosed also had in attendance Bankole, former governor of Ogun, Otunba Gbenga Daniel; ex-minister of state for finance, Senator Jubril Martins-Kuye while Prince Kashamu did not attend.
Other agreements reached at the meeting included the sharing of the other elective positions in the state between Bankole, Daniel and Kashamu.
The meeting was also said to have agreed that while the Ogun Central senatorial slot be reserved for the wife of foremost Ijaw leader, Dr. Bisola Sodipo-Clark, the Ogun East Senatorial ticket should be handed over to ex-governor Daniel.
Kashamu however, is to determine who gets the Ogun West Senatorial ticket.
Also, the nine House of Representatives slots are to be shared equally amongst the three party big wigs in Ogun.
Each of them is to take three House of Representatives slots.
Similarly, 15 out of 26 State House of Assembly seats have been reserved for Bankole while Daniel and Kashamu will control the remaining 11 seats. But while Daniel would take six of the seats, Kashamu is to control the remaining five.
The Secretary of the PDP in the state, Alhaji Semiu Sodipo however, said there was nowhere such a meeting was held and such agreements reached.
According to Sodipo: “No element of truth in it. It is not visible, it is not possible. It’s total lies, it’s malicious.”
Also, Kashamu who spoke through his media assistant, Austin Oniyokor denied being aware of the meeting and the agreement reached.
Oniyokor said, “He was not part of the meeting and was not a party to the meeting if it ever held. He believes strongly that the information is not correct. It is part of the kite being flown by Bankole and his people in their desperate efforts to circumvent due process. Everybody knows that in a democracy you can only talk about consensus when all aspirants agree to such arrangement. Where you have a dissenting voice, even by one aspirant, then it cannot work.
“To the best of my knowledge, all the aspirants for the governorship seat in Ogun State are still very much in the race. I do not know where this idea of consensus is coming from.”

|TV/Movies / Re: Kunle Afolayan's OCTOBER 1: Critic's Review by bioye(m): 11:31pm On Oct 02, 2014|
I have seen the movie. Ordinarily I shy away from Nigerian movies at the cinemas because my first two attempts were terrible. I had expected that Silverbird would show only the highest quality movies at the cinema but I was wrong. By the way, the first two movies I tried were Inale and Maami. Inale failed for me because the acting, the story and directing were below expectation. Maami was unacceptale because the picture quality was below par for cinema and the ending seemed rushed due to director fatigue.
October 1 on the other hand delivered. Though, it was predictable, it was still enjoyable to watch and I would gladly award a pass mark. Other movies that I have been impressed with in the past (though I did not see them at the cinema) include Six Hours to Christmas and The Meeting. I was not impressed with Mr and Mrs and worse still Two Brides and A Baby.
I would like to ask the op to mention other Nigerian Movies he would rate higher than October 1 besides Half of A Yellow Sun. Otherwise, either he's expecting Kunle to be at par with Hollywood or he thinks as a critic, one must critique critically.
|Politics / Re: What If Nigerian Youths Started Their Own Party? by bioye(m): 12:53pm On Sep 05, 2014|
It's always a nice idea to start a political group if the intention is good. But why does it have to include only Youths? Is there something intrinsically good about being Young? Young and old alike brought the country to where it is today. And there exists excellent contributors across all ages who have the potential to transform this country positively.
