Nairaland / General / Re: Worst Form Of Child Abuse In A Nigerian Private Secondary School*pics by BlackBaron: 11:37pm On Nov 26
Potentially not conducive to be honest in any form,

But mine consisted of
Frog jumps and or chain Frog jumps
Head planting
Drills (rolling in mud, on loose pebbles)
Lay down in the open, facing the sun
Some more...can't remember.

Much worse than in the OP. But some punishments meted out do verge on sadism.

Na today!?

I've always looked on in amusement at people pointing at BH as a northern only problem. In as much as it's a problem up there, it is also collectively ours.

The day, their demon terrorists bastard cousins appeal to the sleeping hordes of Jihadi Tourists to 'go help BH' then we are looking at another hotbed on the scale of Syria's.

Here are the people vying for electoral positions in Nigeria

The sons of...
The daughters of...
The grandchild of....
The comedians....
The singers...
The actors/actresses...
The dropouts...
The forged certificate holders...
The ex convicts...
The militants...
The touts...

To all mentioned above, they see electoral positions as simply the best possible investment.

A NASS member on expiration of his tenure is already a Billionaire in Naira. The lesser positions are guaranteed over their respective tenures to have accrued hundreds of millions.
Meanwhile, the electorate that voted them in...
Politics / Re: China, Nigeria Sign Multi-billion-dollar Rail Contract by BlackBaron: 3:02pm On Nov 21
All well and good.
Now If only Ajakouta was working...

The Chinese are also benefitting hugely here, they loan you money, use their own labour, purchase machinery from their own economy, thus effectively pumping the bulk of the money loaned to us back to their own country.

We cannot continue on this sort of patch patch industrialisation where all of our major builds are done by outsiders and the massive population not enjoying from the government's construction boom.

Our institutions are VERY WEAK! Shows how easily they can be hijacked for inappropriate uses. If Jonathan said he's not involved, then who summoned 'troops?'
The IG should be held responsible!

I saw what looked like Police and 'SSS' involved, barring entry to NASS.

At the same time, all these dudes are more or less touts from both parties. Undisciplined bunch!

I hope those encouraging inappropriate behaviour know the weightiness of the Government's actions.

We are slowly Creeping back to the military era mindset where subversion by force is the name of the game.

Business / Re: Breaking!!! Prepare For AUSTERITY - FG by BlackBaron: 9:39am On Nov 17
A senator earns N498, 630. 137 a day, N20,776.28 per hour and N346.270 per minute. In other words, a senators daily pay is two times more than the annual pay of the least paid Nigerian worker. A senator’s hourly pay is also more than the monthly pay of the least paid worker in the country.

These ministers/politicians are not sincere.

Cut Government salaries first! angry Cut those stupendous allowances!

Politics / Re: Ijaw/itsekiri Youths Clash On EPZ by BlackBaron: 6:50pm On Nov 16
Not a good trend.

Many groups are beginning to hold the country to ransom. Increasingly testing the resolve of the government and calling bluffs.

If this persists, we'll have the Armed forces stretched and what comes next after that...
Foreign Affairs / Re: Who Has The Strongest Military On Africa? by BlackBaron: 1:27pm On Nov 15
The Chinese may have copied shapes and stolen 'blueprints' but most forget you also need to have an ability to craft your own super alloys, improve engine thrust, efficiency, torque and so much more. This is the reason why the F35 costs is spiralling out of control.

The Chinese quite alright have managed to piggyback on a successful design (which came after $billion trial and error by the Americans) but their aircraft would always play second fiddle to any design they steal.

Politics / Re: Gov. Liyel Imoke Of Cross River Sets To Join APC. by BlackBaron: 1:13pm On Nov 15
It's kind of funny how politicians switch lanes in Nigeria.
It'll have been easier for me to understand if they had ideologies.

Their supporters are none the wiser; today, an opposition member can be the devil but the minute he crosses over, he's become a Saint.

I remember seeing this in Lagos.

Things took a nasty turn later though when someone alleged they used the animals to intimidate and steal from people.

The guys had to abscond, but one of the hyenas was cornered, then killed with sticks and stones. It had a mouth guard on.

This happened in Festac.
Politics / Re: The Blood Of The Innocent Northern Children Will Hunt The Northern Opposition . by BlackBaron: 7:37pm On Nov 10
The supporter of this government would blame a rock for the country's problem if they could.

In other words, we have a 'Government without balls' that claims to know the sponsors of BH, but can not be bothered to arrest them?
As BH continues to slowly claw up land with the ultimate aim of first solidifying their caliphate in the North and possibly enslaving more younglins into its cadres. Their natural progression would ultimately be the Southern reaches of the country.

Well,got news for all you S of Bs, I love my peace and quiet. Any one that can stop these bunch of crazy lunatics before they capture more places further afield of the MB or Southern states is welcome. This Government has been more successful in pointing fingers, lifting their hands over their heads than actually chucking all these blood sucking demons into a furnace.

If all you supporters got brains, you'd ask your leaders to snuff out/headhunt their leaders before they get to the gates. The enemy camp clearly has her own agenda, is ours to sit, recline and fold our arms before...

You can go on and purchase directly from Gameloft wapshop/website. Much cheaper...about £2 or less than #600

If Nigeria had got her acts together. Who knows, maybe work by archeologists-historians would have been put to work offering us insights into all these ancient empires, cultural artefacts, (think NOK, Ife etc) trace their journeys, carbon date and all that.

This guy is mightily delusional. Often times I think he's bipolar. Lol

The only reason Nigerian arms deals are secretive is simply down to misappropriation of funds. FACT!

Telling porkies about phantom new jets at NAF air expo are best told to day old babies.
Ask him when the 2014 edition would be held, or is it just that they bought only meagre units this year after massive tranches of funds were given to the Armed forces. Besides they've been visiting without outcome for years. Probable that, it'll be 7 years later they'll have a JF17 in their inventory if previous examples are taken into consideration.
Celebrities / Re: Dayo Adeneye, 'D1' Joins Politics Under APC (photo) by BlackBaron: 4:31pm On Nov 01
It can only be due to the $1.5 million yearly salary this guys are after. Political positions have now been watered down to 'get rich quickly schemes'.

That for me can be the ONLY REASON they've all decided to burst through the gates of the NA. In saner climes, hardworking doctors, Vice Chancellors earn more than Prime Ministers and so. In Nigeria, they get paid a pittance compared to the work put in.

Sad!

Previously, the Army passed information about that they knew where the girls were being held. Now this.

Politics / Re: Nigeria At Risk Over Falling Oil Price : FG by BlackBaron: 8:56am On Oct 27
All well and stated.

...but before we start dipping our hands in the 'rainy day' piggy bank, can we at least start squeezing out the excesses from the top.

Let the President start flying Arik, 3 tiers of Government should take a massive pay cut, cut unnecessary offices (Minister of state and all). I'll rather they feel the sting first before a struggling man who wakes up early everyday barely able to scrape a good living that is not commensurate with the effort he puts in.

And by the way, costs of subsidy should be definitely reduced but then with this corrupt administration...? Who knows what houdini scale figures they've been appropriating behind the scenes.

How can Iran (majority Shia country) support BH (Sunni Takfiri jihadists)?


That said, the West would most likely block this. Their Iranian nuclear programme has being at best 'controversial'.

I noticed a lot of Galaxy S2 had 'insufficient memory' problem.
After battling my dad's S2 I came upon a solution and not too keen on rooting I found a solution via androidcentral.

Simply dial *#9900# and then delete "Delete dumpstate/logcat". Press home to exit.

Did that and over a gig was freed!
