|Family / Re: I'm Pregnant Again!! Need Moral Support!! by dustydee: 12:36pm On Feb 28|
I understand that it could be embarrassing but since there's nothing you can do about it then the best thing is to move on. Your child will be over a year old when the new one is born which is fine. As for your CS, it shouldn't be a problem. Your doctors will advice you on what to do and possible recommend a planned CS for you. Do not worry, I am sure your colleagues will be happy for you, but don't tell them yet.

I like this part:
In his ruling, the Justice Y. Halilu said he could not stop the EFCC from doing its work, adding that all Nigerians must unite in the fight against corruption.
|Politics / Re: JTF Destroys 3 Illegal Refineries In Niger Delta by dustydee: 7:35pm On Feb 26|
flexshop:I sincerely don't see how this will work without giving them free crude. And how much will the government sell crude to the big refiners? I agree that the process of obtaining a licence should be streamlined but of the over 20 companies that have the legal right to build refineries, how many of them have built? Those that have not built, why haven't they? These are the questions the government needs to answer and not giving crude away.
|Politics / Re: JTF Destroys 3 Illegal Refineries In Niger Delta by dustydee: 10:34am On Feb 26|
flexshop:The government already has a mechanism in place for awarding refining licenses(although I will suggest that obtaining one should be made easier). If they are interested, they could have obtained one. The illegal refineries are in business simply because they get crude free. They are unable to optimise yield the way they are currently set up. Merging and inviting foreign partners is akin to setting up conventional refineries, so we are back to where we started. No point saying they should be legalised because there is a process for that already.
|Politics / Re: Why Buhari Sent N500,000 To Judge Accused Of Corruption by dustydee: 1:42pm On Feb 22|
nwakibie3:And you expect Buhari to bribe the Judge? And you think Buhari is the lawyer's only client?
|Politics / Re: Why Buhari Sent N500,000 To Judge Accused Of Corruption by dustydee: 1:08pm On Feb 22|
holyfather:I don't have to prove it because the writer proved it himself.
1. The statement "Why Buhari sent N500000 to Judge . . ." - Buhari was never mentioned as the person who gave the Judge the money. He cannot be held responsible for the actions of his lawyer except if there's evidence that he was complicit, in this case there's none and the lawyer has also admitted that he sent the money in his personal capacity.
Learn to think critically before reaching conclusions. Don't allow the media dictate to you, especially in this age of junk journalism.

holyfather:I am not threatening him, in sane societies, do you know that he can be held liable for spreading falsehood and distorting the facts? It is clear that the writers sole aim is to taint the president.

stinggy:Where does it state that Buhari sent the money?
|Politics / Re: Why Buhari Sent N500,000 To Judge Accused Of Corruption by dustydee: 12:37pm On Feb 22|
Seun, the money was not sent by Buhari but was given to the Judge by his friend, Buhari's lawyer. Stop spreading fake news. Interestingly, you previously posted the statement from the said lawyer and now you have posted this fake news even though the contents do not match with the headline.
Seun, don't use your hand to destroy your site.
|Food / Re: Update On Imported ‘india Garri’: Health Minister Now Aware & Taken Actions by dustydee: 11:53am On Feb 21|
Your concerns are valid but rather than focus on the government, I will rather focus on the people. The government cannot keep banning everything, they may violate WTO rules. If there’s no market, then the imports will stop. Honestly, I don’t believe Nigerians will patronise this product in Nigeria, maybe in the UK. I am based in the UK and I have not bought this product although I do not like garri a lot. The two problems with this particular product based on what I read above is
1. It is not NAFDAC registered
2. It appears to have been imported from the UK through Ghana to make it seem like it was coming from the ECOWAS sub-region for tax and duty purposes.
Overall, NAFDAC needs to up its game to check the import of food products to the country.
|Food / Re: Update On Imported ‘india Garri’: Health Minister Now Aware & Taken Actions by dustydee: 10:59am On Feb 21|
I know the TRS brand in the UK. The question here is will the government ban it if they find no problem after analysing the product? I know they have mentioned that it has no NAFDAC number, will they also ask that the locally produced garri be NAFDAC certified or is the NAFDAC certification only for imported products?

|Agriculture / Re: Indian Garri Being Sold In Nigerian Supermarkets (Photos) by dustydee: 6:36pm On Feb 19|
TRS is a popular brand in the UK. The first time I saw TRS garri was in 2012 in Tesco, in the UK. There's another brand called Island Sun. I personally don't see what the fuss is all about. If there's no market, then people will not import it. Rather than blame the importers, focus on the consumers and discourage them (you don't need to if you have a superior and cheaper product and I believe we do). The writer is just being sensational.
|Politics / Re: Control Of Federal Land: Lagos Defeats FG In Supreme Court by dustydee: 5:29pm On Jan 27|
People didn't even bother to read the judgement. I weep for the future of our country if we continue like this.
Justice Dattijo Muhammad, who read the apex court’s lead ruling, agreed with the Lagos State Government that the court lacked the power to exercise its “original jurisdiction” in the suit because the Federal Government had “transferred its title in the land to others”.’In other words, the land no longer belong to the FG so the court could not entertain the matter at the instance of the FG.

|Health / Re: The Death Of Traditional Herbal Medicine In Nigeria by dustydee: 2:48pm On Jan 06|
Joavid:Good article. I currently live in the west and I have seen that there are treatments that we have back home that the west does not know. I discussed with my mum about acquiring knowledge of some of these traditional medicines. I also mentioned some plants that we had in our garden and she told me the uses of those plants including bitter leaf. I used to think bitter leaf was only used for cough but now I know it has other uses. I will like to learn more about plants in the wild and probably develop them for commercial use.

|Crime / Nigerian Gang Of 19 ATM Robbers Arrested In Sharjah, UAE by dustydee: 10:07pm On Jan 05|

Four gangs of 19 robbers targeted ATM vehicles and fled with Dh1.8 million, the Sharjah Police have revealed. As reported by Khaleej Times earlier, the Nigerian robbers had come to the country on visit visas specifically to commit the robberies. They assaulted security guards accompanying the vehicles to carry out the robberies.

|Politics / Re: NNPC Spends $546M On Failing OKLNG, Wants $4.5M for other expenses (PICS) by dustydee: 9:41pm On Dec 28, 2016|
MadamExcellency:Sanusi never disclosed the content of his letter to the president until someone in the presidency leaked it and he was put on the spot.
Amaechi was reported recently (I cannot confirm if it is true) to have said that he leaked the Sanusi's letter.
|Politics / Re: NNPC Spends $546M On Failing OKLNG, Wants $4.5M for other expenses (PICS) by dustydee: 6:42pm On Dec 28, 2016|
MadamExcellency:Does that then make it right because someone leaked a letter then?
|Politics / Re: NNPC Spends $546M On Failing OKLNG, Wants $4.5M for other expenses (PICS) by dustydee: 6:32pm On Dec 28, 2016|
This is not good, how did this memo leak? No secrecy in government anymore.
OP, the $4.5 is to fund the project activities on value preservation and not solely for the relocation of the staff. Stop misleading people, read the second prayer.

|Politics / Re: Senate Did Not Reject Magu’s Nomination – Ndume by dustydee: 4:21pm On Dec 19, 2016|
The president must do something about the SGF if we are to take his anti-corruption war serious. The minimum I expect from him is to ask him to step down pending investigation into the alleged contract award.
|Politics / Re: SGF Babachir Lawal Corruption Case : Company Documents Leaked (pics) by dustydee: 2:32pm On Dec 17, 2016|
Where's the document that shows he resigned this year?
Where is the contract documents?
Why is the account statement not legible? How do we know the money was transferred as alleged?
