Politics / Re: We​’ll Resume Our Struggle On One Condition - Asari Dokubo by BlackBaron: 7:14pm On May 19
Treading softly is he...?
The MEND Niger Delta struggle was not about agitation for a greater share or development. It was an effort by some willing enough to carry guns and battle to wedge themselves into the pilfering crews stealing the ND oil wealth. As soon as they got paid, that was it...

Asari currently knows if he engages on another struggle, probably 70% of his recently acquired riches would be wiped off as of course he would be heavily targeted (finance,properties,etc)

In all, I still wish the ND can get their money worth in development and good life but it is never people like Asari that'll give or fight for his people. He's a man that fights for his pockets.

Politics / Re: South African Mercenaries' Secret War On Boko Haram by BlackBaron: 10:30am On May 12
I think stories like this dilutes the efforts of the main forces involved.

Not denying the mercs efforts, but it was also done largely with the collaboration of our own 'force multipliers'. What they brought to the fold was superior tactics due to their past 'bush wars' knowledge. of course, you'd need a team to execute it which was largely our soldiers.

Foreign Affairs / Re: The 10 Most Corrupt Countries In The World: Nigeria Not On The List! by BlackBaron: 2:27pm On May 11
By the time they do a full audit of the NNPC alone,
The sum missing would probably pay off 2/3rd of the yearly national budget of these countries on the list.

Why should I be impressed that I'm not dragging backend positions with countries like South Sudan,Afghanistan or Somalia.
I'll like to be impressed with comparisons in relative terms with countries like Brazil, South Africa, Singapore et al.

Politics / Re: Pwc’s NNPC Audit Left Gas Sales Record Untouched by BlackBaron: 6:51pm On May 01
NNPC is like a 37th state which ruled itself with impunity.

Only It granted itself autonomy to spend money And disemburse funds to each other as they wished. No one knows how far this rot stretches to, but it's also indicative of how relaxed they got under...

They sprouted ginormous wings at the beginning after they saw they could get away with the fuel subsidy scam which no one got prosecuted for till date
Politics / Re: Jonathan Questions Buhari's Victory by BlackBaron: 6:47pm On Apr 30

Career / Re: Salary Scale Of Lecturers In Nigerian Universities by BlackBaron: 2:08pm On Apr 30
Not attractive enough in my opinion.

Lecturers should earn so much more.
The librarian salary is not up to scratch.

The VC's for example should earn much much more.

Whoever wrote this is still a learner.

They forgot to include the last 2 brand new AW101 helicopters added to the presidential fleet last year when the Nigerian Airforce were struggling to have enough cover for coin operations.

No, not really. undecided

The mind boggles over the wickedness of the Government, the full report would have been swept under the carpet if the current incumbent won. Largest oil revenues on record doesn't tally with infrastructures, standard of living on ground.
To think, they proudly came out to declare only $1.4 billion was unremited.

They have a skin disability, the dwarf guy is the one with special seeds....... Besides each year the government sets aside 1.1 million Dollars to buy sunscreen lotion for albinos. (that's kind of special need(from the govt perspective), Don't you think?). Although they still function just as any other human being, its just that previously, they used to get discriminated in enrollment to things such as police or NYS, but now they've been guaranteed that there will be places for them to be integrated with the rest.
Interesting, apart from the varying degree of Nystagmus in people with albinism, it more or less shouldn't be a reason to put them in special needs units. Least to my belief, they are able to perform tasks normally as any human though wouldn't think flying a fighter jet would be advisable where you need excellent vision. Non combat or desktop roles, sure.

Politics / Re: We Are Pleading For The Elongation Of The Amnesty Program. by BlackBaron: 3:09pm On Apr 24
Won't it be better off to have least have a broader development in your region than pouring money into the pockets of a few thousands. To me it reads like 'bribe money' when your rivers and farmlands have not being cleaned,meagre infrastructures and others. It'll also create a false sense of entitlement as for some, they'll fight to never see it stop.

Not the easiest topic, but I think a lot of reforms are needed. Greater allocation to your region, stop the amnesty, create atmosphere for jobs and much more.

Religion / Re: I Wonder If These Are Found In Quran by BlackBaron: 11:56am On Apr 24
Laws of old.

I'm trying to remember last time (you heard, if ever) a 'Christian' went on film quoting from the aforementioned scriptures and beheading or stoning a 'sinner'.

However, another religion with the letter 'I' ... 'havoc all over the world' ... 'quoting from their holy book'... 'destroying living and even inanimate objects'.

The world since moved on from old testament ways, but their adherents ('I') have chosen to remain in darkness and would rather blame others, the CIA, conspiracies, et al for the state of their religion but themselves.

Politics / Re: NNPC Has Started Refunding Unremitted $1.48bn - Alison-Madueke by BlackBaron: 8:28am On Apr 23
If it was never brought to light, is this the way a sum of almost $1.5 billion dollar would have crawled into the pickets of a few people?

Besides, refunding is kind of indicative of money that was purposely diverted or just not declared.

Would be interesting to start seeing refunds from other government agencies.

Abba Moro would soon be the next to start making refunds.

Quite extraordinary.

Googling her name shows her first caught at age 24 (2007) shortly after graduating from uni.
Not many people get a chance at a £29500 job right after uni.

Not to talk of another second lifeline job after conviction and spared a prison term.

Her parents must be disappointed. embarassed

All the gazelles and MI-35/24V Helicopters belong to us.
Here is a reply i got from Sipri when i questioned the under-enumeration of NAF assets.
Hello Henry,
A good example of the secrecy around arms procurement in Nigeria. We only noticed the information abut the Gazelles when the database had already been closed and was ready for publication. We have no idea how many Gazelle's Nigeria has procured and where they came from. We believe they were delivered in 2015, and my best guess is that they come from Serbia or France. Both countries have plenty of Gazelles in stock.

When executive outcomes was still operating they would usually buy the equipment themselves and include the cost of the items in the bill.

Assets would usually by handed over to whoever hired them in the end of the operation.... its not like you can put a hind in your handluggage on your flight home grin

Sounds like viable information. Cool
