Food / Re: 5 Different Kinds Of annoying Persons You Meet When Buying Suya by dustydee: 11:08pm On Dec 19
I went to buy Suya this evening at a junction along my street. I saw many guys and babes waiting for their turn to be served Suya by the Northerner. I noticed the following kinds of people:

1. 'Give me test' Northerner
These persons take seriously in collecting a small piece of Suya from the seller. They hardly know that it is part of their own suya they are eating.

2. 'Put More Onions'
These persons are onions addict, they like oniins. They will tell, the Northerner to make sure that more onions are added to their suya.

3. 'Northerner Put Jara'
These class of people like to be given something more to what they paid for. They do not mind if they buy only N50.00 worth of suya.?

4. 'People Who come to Smell the Suya.'
These are the "long throat " class. They follow friends to just feel the smell of the suya, in some cases, they are the ones that will shout "Northerner the suya too small "

5. 'The Big Boys'
They come usually remain in their cars and order the Northerner to put suya worth N2000.00 in five places and that means many people have to wait for a long time.

Please add your experiences
What is this? Nairaland now censors words indiscriminately now. for your information A-boki means friend not Northerner. Seun, please stop this senseless censorship.
Politics / Re: Reuben Abati Releases Wikileak's Secret Documents On Buhari by dustydee: 10:40pm On Dec 18
A US ambassador cable released by Wikileaks details how American officials guided Goodluck Jonathan to take the reins of the presidency during Umaru Yar’Adua’s chaotic last days. Diplomatic cables made public by WikiLeaks show that the American ambassador to Nigeria, Robin Sanders, instructed Goodluck Jonathan on how to get rid of former INEC Chairman, Mr. Maurice Iwu. Using the threat that the United States government would not support future elections if Iwu remained the INEC chairman, the ambassador suggested that Mr. Iwu be placed on terminal leave.

In the chaotic period, Jonathan was doing everything to appease the North. He told the Americans that the Northern political leaders were uncomfortable with him as the man at the helm. Jonathan found comfort in the counsel of the former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, who acted as his go-between with Northern leaders.

Ambassador Sanders warned Jonathan steer clear of former President Olusegun Obasanjo. She stressed to Jonathan that in order to be an effective leader, he wass not to be seen as being directed by Obasanjo. Jonathan promised to take steps to separate himself from Obasanjo.

The most revealing part of the cable was the point where Jonathan confessed to his ineptitude, “I was not chosen to be Vice President because I had good political experience,” he said. “I did not. There were a lot more qualified people around to be Vice President, but that does not mean I am not my own man.”

Further, he said, “not a politician” and had very limited experience as an administrator".

Is it the same Abati that said we should not believe wiki-leaks when they leaked President Jonathan's admission of incompetence to lead Nigeria to the US ambassador? So it was true after all.

Romance / Re: Help, In My 30s And Still A Virgin by dustydee: 2:32pm On Dec 17
By Bunmi Sofola

Dear Bunmi,

I know it sounds strange that at this time and age, there could be a virgin in her thirties but that’s exactly what I am. I’m currently dating a man that’s a few years older than I am and it will be a matter of weeks for sex to be on the cards.

Not me ooo, I got it from Vanguard oooo. LOL
What is strange about this? There many virgins around.

You know you have a long way to go when you are referred to as Kerry's husband, Obasanjo's son, Chidinma's father, MI's friend etc. Come on people, the man has a name, refer to him by name not a tag.

Please read again. That statement is not credited to me. My reaction was that it can't be that much but who knows? That man aparently has more money than we think. Pres. Goodluck, I was also told, was giving out $10,000 to delegates that same year.

Someone told me some weeks back that Atiku had earmark $1billion dollars for the elections (I think he was exaggerating) but now I understand what he meant. He told me he gave PDP delegates $30,000 each during the 2011 convention.

Travel / Re: Pls, I Need Help In New York by dustydee: 9:38pm On Dec 10
How long do you intend to stay? with a two year visa, I don't think you are allowed to stay in the country for more than six months at a stretch. I'll advice you get a B&B for two weeks which I believe will be enough for you to see all the interesting places in New York and you could briefly visit another state, say new Jersey before you return.
Politics / Re: Score Buhari On The Channels Interview. by dustydee: 2:54pm On Dec 08

your expectations are really really low!
You really can't say because your priorities and mine are different and moreover I am tired of the status quo and some of what he said made sense to me and I was also impressed by his choice of words when answering the questions. I doubt the incumbent can stand a similar type of questioning.
Politics / Re: Score Buhari On The Channels Interview. by dustydee: 11:40am On Dec 08
I would have liked to hear more details on some issues such as security but overall, he beat my expectations. It'll score him 8/10.
Politics / Re: Pictures of Russian Cargo Plane impounded in Kano and its consignment by dustydee: 12:34pm On Dec 07

actually the plane had slight issues and since it was on Nigerian airspace it asked for an emergency landing and the normal procedure is that routine checks be done on any plane that enters the country and so it was found...then they impounded it cos of the weapons wasn't deliberately set to be it wasn't a stopover
Please, on what basis was it impounded?
Politics / Re: Pictures of Russian Cargo Plane impounded in Kano and its consignment by dustydee: 11:55am On Dec 07
Why would Nigeria impound weapons meant for another country when we are not at war with that country? How would we feel if weapons meant for Nigeria were impounded on a stopover in another country?

Well, I don't believe this is true and will wait for further details from the authorities.
Travel / Re: My Passport And Documents Was Seized At Italian Consulate Last Two Weeks. by dustydee: 11:49am On Dec 05
Why are u saying that? Is it today that people give money to agent to do visa for them? Or are my the first person to do that? On daily basis, people still do this. So why are u mocking me when u suppose to say something to help me out. Being victim of this today doesnt mean u cant be a victim tomoro in a different way.
Since you submitted the application yourself, I will assume that you looked at the contents and to the best of your knowledge the documents were genuine. If that is the case then you have nothing to fear, go to the SFU and collect your documents. You know the branch that printed your account statement for you or ask the person whose account statement was submitted to get a letter from his/her bank stating that the statement is genuine(At least you used your account or a close relatives account statement).
I am assuming it was a straight forward application. grin
otherwise - GOODLUCK.

Their names are Love and Joy. Love is married to a pastor. But Joy is the last child in the family and she currently schools abroad- (Oral Robert University).


Why do you think they are decent? Do you know them personally? Or is it based on the picture you posted? I could post a beautiful picture of Maheeda and tag it as decent as well.
Travel / Re: Canadian Federal Skilled Worker Program-timelines Here by dustydee: 12:07pm On Dec 03

Good one. I personally think the EE will be easier than the FSWP. I believe not many people will have job offers when they are applying.
I was waiting for the EE but now I am torn between remaining where I am now (UK) or moving to Canada and literally start all over again. I need to weigh the two options before moving forward.
I have always liked Canada for no reason but that is not enough reason to move there.

I am so happy embassies are taking the initiative to prosecute people who issue forged documents. I hope they see this case to the end. Kudos to the Italian embassy. 10 year ban is not sufficient, it should be accompanied by jail time as well.

Nairaland / General / Re: My Experience With Racists. by dustydee: 2:39pm On Nov 30
It may be that you had bad breath or body odor. If I sat near someone and he left his seat, I may feel bad but it also means that I have more space to play around. If he said something nasty to you, then you have every reason to be angry but by your account, you really haven't proven that t was racist but then I may be wrong cos you experienced it.
