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.

Easiest way to make frontpage is to post a graphic picture and it'll surely be there in less than '60 seconds'.

Please I pray to ask, why do you delight in pictures of gore?

Politics / 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.

Are albinos also considered 'special needs' in your country?

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.


Crime / Re: Nigerian City PA Conned Her U.k Employer Out Of £17k To Pay For Luxury Wedding by BlackBaron: 10:14am On Apr 22
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

Business / Re: Amazon Expands Shipping Of Items To Nigeria - Jumia/konga Etc Be Afraid by BlackBaron: 9:11am On Apr 08
But reliability of the courier they'll use would scare them away. Is it NIPOST that can perform houdini on your shipped items and then give you stones neatly wrapped in a box or something similar?

Best bet is to use DHL though but as known are more expensive than even the middlemen shippers.

Politics / Re: Sorry, But Blame Your Colonial Emperor For Making Lagos A No-mans-land by BlackBaron: 8:43pm On Apr 07
When you say it like that, you're kind of implying that the original inhabitants have been stripped of their historic and ancestral rights to their land.

Calabar is no longer a capital, but it once was. No one is singing to the original inhabitants how their land doesn't belong to them anymore because it once benefited from government largesse.
Lagos benefits from a very prime location and was supported by different tribes to become what it is presently.

If this woman is being made a cordinating minister for economy, then we should expect nothing from GMB administration.

Sensitive posts should not be awarded to women, we can't run away from the fact that says what a man can do a woman can only try but not better. GMB should learn from GEJ and makes no mistake.

No beef whatsoever.

Politics / Re: Impact Of Buhari And APC Win On The PIB by BlackBaron: 12:42pm On Apr 03
All this rigmarole,
I have always had it in my heart that oil producing communities should have at least 50% derivation from oil proceeds. Jo as a son of the oil producing bloc probably had the best chance if he tried.

Also, all the questionable block owners should have been made to return part or all proceeds from the oil wells they own especially remembering they were acquired in funny circumstances.

Well I always thought so...however much later he kind of slipped.

DSS, SSS started chasing and harassing up and down.
We need stronger institutions I must say. Security arms, tv stations and otherwise should be non partisan.
The BBC, Met Police or Mi5 does not carry out illegalities for the Prime Minister of Britain, does it?

Hope we get there soon.

Politics / Re: Eziachi: Dearest Jonathan & My Fellow Igbo Brothers by BlackBaron: 2:50pm On Apr 02
When dollars were shown, Ohaneze and even Massob sang for Jonathan. Unlike what held during the elections, I know quite a bit of Igbos who looked beyond voting for Jo on links alone and voted otherwise. Some stayed away.
The only fall out was how there wasn't enough traction of APC support for SE /SS APC aspirants which has left them no cover in an especially APC majority senate. All hope not lost though, if it be from an opposition member so be it as I'd prefer an all inclusive government rather than shutting doors.
