erekoshe:Thumbs up. The OPs explanation does not hold. IMEIs are unique identifiers and has nothing to do with determining the quality of a product.
Olasco93:Oga you are wrong, please learn from the guy I quoted above or do a simple internet search.
|Career / Re: Advice Needed:a Masters Degree To Aid My 2.2 Or A Life-changing Trip To Italy? by dustydee: 9:39am On Nov 28|
adren:What visa are you going to Italy on? From all indication, please correct me if i am wrong, you hve no job offer in Italy and so will be going on a temporary visa (tourist, business etc.) or Illegally. Now if you do that you cannot work legally and the way things are going now you will suffer. You will not make any meaningful earnings as most employers (if any will treat you as a slave) because they know your status. The only way you can make money if you go into drugs and other crimes. Stay where you and do your masters or start a business. If you have money to travel to Italy, you are not poor and you have the money to start a small business.

|Politics / Re: Why Buhari Won't Succeed In 4 Years - Cramjones by dustydee: 5:47pm On Nov 27|
Firefire:If Buhari fails to stop this trend of using government money (from agencies like NNPC etc.) to fund elections as was done in the past, he would have failed completely as a leader.

|Career / Re: My Worst Day On Earth And Some Thoughts On Suicide. by dustydee: 10:27am On Nov 27|
dearpreye:One of the problems is that a lot of Nigerians do not understand mental health issues. Rather than seek for help, people just keep to themselves either because they do not know that they need help, do not know where to go or for fear of the stigma of being tagged a mental health patient. I pray the government and NGOs will create awareness on mental health issues and provide centres for dealing with such issues.

|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: 5K: How Will Federal Government Capture Data Of All Unemployed Youths? by dustydee: 11:00am On Nov 26|
zieraw2005:BVN . . . Each unemployed youth will have a BVN. With that the only thing left is for the government to find out those who are unemployed. I do not expect them to "dash" them the money but demand a level of community service. That way it will be difficult to hold a job and claim benefits as well. Also, they can monitor the extra funds going beneficiaries bank account that indicate that they are employed or engaged in some form of business.

|Politics / Re: President Buhari’s Most Recent Missteps by dustydee: 3:27pm On Nov 25|
PassingShot:I appreciate your honesty in pointing out some of the presidents' failings. That is the kind of spirit we need for our democracy to survive. If GEJs supporters had done the same, he probably will still be president today but most chose to be sycophants.

Kirri:Why do you think it is extortion? Is the price different from what is obtainable globally? or is the cost of conducting the examination far less than the charge? I will appreciate if you can let us know why you think they are extorting us. Thank you.
|Celebrities / Re: Halima Abubakar Hits The Pool In Sexy Wear by dustydee: 4:50pm On Nov 24|
Nairaland and double standard, shey na sexy wear now whereas when someone wore something similar to an event it was titled "see what xxxx wore to an event". What is the difference between this and the other lady that wore a revealing dress? Are they not both end time dresses?
|Career / Re: How To Survive In The Oil And Gas Industry? by dustydee: 4:44pm On Nov 24|
nedie:I think what they refer to as contract staff in the banking sector is really "outsourced" positions and not "contract" staff in the real sense of it. So those in the banking sector actually work for a different company other than the bank itself. A contract staff strictly speaking is SELF EMPLOYED. But most companies will not directly hire you except through an agency or umbrella company. So the companies pay the agency and the agency in turn remits the money to you after taking their share. Contract staff are often paid more than permanent staff because of the risk (can easily be fired without compensation) and also because it relieves the hiring company of other responsibilities like medical care, insurance (in some cases) and other benefits. You may look at some of those benefits as being "monetised" if you wish. I am currently a staff but wish to be a contractor later except I get into management. When the oil prices were still high, some of my colleagues charged up to £80 per hour.
The downside is if you don't go to work (due to sickness or any emergency) you don't get paid for that period whereas a permanent staff gets annual leave and sick leave with pay.
Finally, those "contract" staff that work in the banks need to wake up and demand what is due to them. If you are an outsourced staff, you deserve other benefits including sick leave, pension contribution and other benefits enumerated in our labour laws. Don't let these companies take advantage of you.
|Politics / Re: DPR Gives Out FREE Fuel To Motorists In Kwara by dustydee: 2:13pm On Nov 24|
Berrylite:I agree with you that the action may not be legal but they will be the ultimate loser because even if they win in court, DPR can impose a stiffer penalty on the company for violating its license conditions including revocation of the stations' license.

|Politics / Re: Fuel Scarcity: FG Should Legalize Illegal Refineries - Murray-Bruce by dustydee: 12:45pm On Nov 17|
2rutalk1:If they are licensed, they will go out of business because it won't be profitable. The cost of buying crude, lab tests, optimising production, taking care of the environment, salaries etc. All these will bring you to what the government has already done by licensing modular refineries which have not yet taken off.
|Politics / Re: Fuel Scarcity: FG Should Legalize Illegal Refineries - Murray-Bruce by dustydee: 12:33pm On Nov 17|
Vicboi1:They are in business because they steal their crude. Are you aware of the damage these refineries do to the environment? Do you know that they do not check the quality of their products? DO you know the damage illegally refined products can do to our vehicles? I do not support it because it will not be profitable for the operators, lead to waste of crude oil, damage the environment and also damage our vehicles. Coming from a Bayelsan who should be concerned about the already polluted environment just makes you shudder.
I am beginning to belive the saying about Ben murray Bruce: "Looks like Obama, thinks like Obanikoro".
|Politics / Re: N10million Bribery Scam: Presidency In Dilema Over CCT Chair by dustydee: 8:44am On Nov 15|
The problem is that there is no sufficient evidence against him. The PA claimed that he gave the money to him in cash while the EFCC claimed to have recovered the money from the PA. So where did the PA get the money from? Did he pay from his pocket? While the CCT chairman can be removed on moral grounds, I don't see how he can be convicted except the EFCC has sufficient evidence that he took bribe.
|Politics / Re: FG Spends N5.8bn On Presidential Jets In Six Months by dustydee: 9:08am On Nov 14|
How much is spent on maintaining the presidential fleet? - We don't know
Where did Punch get their estimate from? - based on assumptions and data obtained from COMMERCIAL airlines.
Is their estimate correct? - Highly unlikely since commercial airlines spend more on fuel, maintenance and crew.
My verdict - sensational journalism.
