|Politics / Re: Dimeji Bankole Kicked Out Of Ogun Governorship Race 24hrs To Primary by bioye(m): 9:02pm On Dec 08|
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|
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.”

No. By the way, @op, is your question targeted towards Christians only? Because with all these references to the Bible and God, that's what it looks like to me.
|TV/Movies / Re: Kunle Afolayan's OCTOBER 1: Critic's Review by bioye(m): 11:31pm On Oct 02|
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|
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.

@ThaiAlNigeria, thank you for the excellent post. This is a great lesson in entrepreneurship and SWOT that we can never learn in a classroom. Also, given the challenges even Nigerians face in the business environment, seeing from the point of view of a foreigner in invaluable. I await your next lecture.

Why do some Nigerians love to misinform others? That is why I am skeptical of the media at times. The number of applicants that applied is not even up to 1 million so how can someone come here to say N6 billion was generated? Haba!

Though both Sesan and Moe Musa are wack directors, the Skelewu video by Sesan is one of his best productions. And of course, it's better than the Moe Musa version.

|Car Talk / Re: His Friend Was Jailed For Stopping At An Unauthorized Bus-stop In Lagos by bioye(m): 11:33am On Sep 11, 2013|
Incomplete information is not acceptable or actionable. You need to find out whether he is in detention or if he has started serving his sentence. If he is convicted, we need to know the exact crime he was convicted for and the duration of the sentence. I believe we all went to school so we can process information thoroughly and take informed decisions.
If convicted and the duration of sentence is short, say 6 months, I'd advise he serve it through and learn his lesson. If longer, then other options may be considered.

bucho8888: i work with min of interior which is in charge of immigration n as soon as i saw dis post i immediately contacted an officer at their hq abuja. he said if they r recruiting then it must be through d back door. dis officer works at d admin office. so if there is an open recruitment he should know. but he is not aware of any recruitment.
Anybody can come here and claim to work with Ministry of Interior. Even scammers and disgruntled elements will come and make false claims here. If indeed the recruitment is fake, how come there are adverts is 6 major newspapers and yet the Ministry of Interior has not come out to deny or disown these publications? If you truly work in the ministry and you cannot confirm the authenticity of this exercise from either the Ministry or CDFIPB, then you need to be retrenched with immediate effect!

The list of banks is provided on the recruitment website after choosing payment option. The banks are not listed in the published advert.

ademitoun: Pls guys I've been trying to proceed with d application when I selected one of d pay with options and d portal would not just continue. I need help cos I've been stalked there for hours now.
This is because this is the peak period and the number of people applying right now is very high so the website is slow. Try to apply later in the day or use a faster cyber cafe.

nekede11: My surprise s d money involvement,if it s ministry of interior i knw,they recruitmnt don't involve money.so d whole tin s stil questionable.i can only say,ppl watch ur back
sixpee:Previously, the Ministry of Interior conducted the recruitment exercise manually and it was man-know-man. Now, the Ministry has gone online. This involves third party software companies that need to be paid. Also, the participating banks for collections would need to be paid.
jamesbridget13: pls re there credentials 2 be uploaded? I saw d first page yesterday dat has passsport but couldn't get 2 other pages. Pls do reply let me get everything ready b4 heading 2 d cyber. Thanks
No. You don't need to upload credentials. You will take the credentials along with you when you are short-listed and invited for interview.
muyeindaclub: But has anyone gone to the bank to pay nd wot is it like issue at d bank, and afta dat dos one nid to go bank online to complete it or d bank is d end
muyeindaclub: Cuz dat said we ar to collect a validation number which will be use to complete d registratin. Bt to me I dnt tink der is any further tin on d site, cuz if u go back to check it, der is only chance for new application. No login again or I'd wotsoever
You need to go back to the website and click Print Acknowledgement Slip. You will need to enter your Application Number(provided after submitting online form) and your Validation Number (collected from the bank) to access the page.
Princeofilorin: the website is not secure(HTTPS).i'm still doubting the authencity.only time will tellThe website is secure. The Pay4Me payment section is HTTPS.
lummyguy: Wateva u do mak esure u dont pay online....i jes lost N1000 from paying online....then d stupisdsite is telling me incorrect validation number...called the help lines and they were all switched off...three of them...u can try d lines too....
@lummyguy, your case is a unique one but it can still be resolved. You made your application and payment during a very brief period some time before the Monday commencement date when the website was being tested and before the advertisement went out. I'll be sending you a private message on how the problem can be solved if you don't mind.

Piresios: Is d act 2 make d payment in2 addressed thr? Not bank
You mean which bank account are you supposed to pay into? You don't need to pay into a bank account. The bank will handle that. Just print the payment slip on the website and take it to the bank. The bank will direct you on what to do when you get there.
