Politics / Re: Jonathan Provided Armored Vehicles That Saved Buhari's Life by dustydee: 8:12am On Jul 28
Sometime last month, I read a report where the federal government was reported to have increased security around former heads of state because of intelligence report that there were plans to attack them. So for people to claim it was stage managed is surprising. Also the allegation by Buhari and APC that it is an attempt on his life sounds like it is the PDP/FG that is responsible which to me is un called for and baseless.

You got it wrong...New entrant into state and federal establishments will get their gratuity while pension will be paid by your pfa.

The people who even got their cheques are lucky the future staff are the people hard hit by such policy.
My mum's gratuity was paid by the PFA and not the state government. You get nothing from your employer if you are on the private contributory pension scheme (except your employer wants to pay you soemthing).

Politics / Re: TRANSFORMATION AGENDA: Abuja Light Rail Will Be Ready In May 2015 by dustydee: 9:43am On Jul 25
Good. But I dont understand this part:

The Idu station is the first station and one can come here and take a train to Kaduna within a maximum of one hour. The train speed is about 150 kilometre per hour.

Bature added that the first stage of the project covered 186 kilometres from Idu to Kaduna , putting the total project cost at $849 million.
If the maximum speed is 150km/hr, how will you cover a distance of 186km in less than an hour?

mostfavoured:

Why do you attribute high percentage of out of school children to the federal government when you know that Local government and State government are in charge of primary school education.
Industrial revolution is driven by private sectors but you attributes it to government because of the enabling policies.
If things go wrong you blame government so if things go right commends the government also.
That is what I asked you. Which government policy is responsible for number 6? And why is the same policy not yielding results in the North?
Travel / Re: Bayelsa The Pride Of The Nation (pictures) by dustydee: 9:04pm On Jul 23
Sloan: Houston, a city in Texas is oil producing as Bayelsa. Now, I will not even compare them in any way but why on earth can't ALL these roads even be marked and well delineated and landscaped? Yes, I know this was the best or one of the best roads you found and took a picture of but I am surprised you do not see this is a disgrace? Yet Bayelsa has a population of less than 2 M but a budget topping almost all the other states when you factor in their oil derivation component? So, in essence from Alamadeighna and Jonadaft and the 2 loonies that came after him, they still could not make one proper marking on that stretch of road? No sidewalk on that very long stretch?
The roads look well paved but the first thing I noticed was the lack of road markings. This is not peculiar to Bayelsa state but we need to take the safety of commuters serious in this country.

@OP there are many holes in these "achievements" you have listed. For example:

6. 75% Increase in O'Level credit pass in Math and English
How did the government achieve this or what did they do to achieve this given that most of the secondary schools in Nigeria are either run by state governments or private investor? If your assertions are true, please why is the failure rate in the north still very high? Or is GEJ's policy in the south different from that in the north?

She was out at the park yesterday, why didn't the DSS question her then? Why did they wait until she was on her way out of the country before stopping her, collecting her passport and briefly detaining her? What is wrong is wrong. Tomorrow it may be any of us and if we are not as popular as she is, we may end up being detained unnecessarily without any just cause.
In any case, why is the federal government antagonistic towards the #bringbackourgirls campaigners? I bet the protest will seize as soon as those girls are returned to their parents.

These people make me sick a times. angry

Politics / Emerging Nations Plan Their Own World Bank, IMF by dustydee: 10:10pm On Jul 14
WASHINGTON (AP) — Fed up with U.S. dominance of the global financial system, five emerging market powers this week will launch their own versions of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa —the so-called BRICS countries — are "seeking "alternatives to the existing world order," said Harold Trinkunas, director of the Latin America Initiative at the Brookings Institution.
At a summit Tuesday through Thursday in Brazil, the five countries will unveil a $100 billion fund to fight financial crises, their version of the IMF. They will also launch a World Bank alternative, a new bank that will make loans for infrastructure projects across the developing world.
The five countries will invest equally in the lender, tentatively called the New Development Bank. Other countries may join later.
The BRICS powers are still jousting over the location of the bank's headquarters — Shanghai, Moscow, New Delhi or Johannesburg. The headquarters skirmish is part of a larger struggle to keep China, the world's second-biggest economy, from dominating the new bank the way the United States has dominated the World Bank.
The bloc comprises countries with vastly different economies, foreign policy aims and political systems — from India's raucous democracy to China's one-party state.
Whatever their differences, the BRICS countries have a shared desire for a bigger voice in global economic policy. Each has had painful experiences with Western financial dominance: They've contended with economic sanctions imposed by Western powers. Or they've been forced to make painful budget cuts and meet other strict conditions to qualify for emergency IMF loans.
Now, says Thomas Wright, a fellow at Brookings' Project on International Order and Strategy, "they want a safety net if they fall out with the West."
Developing countries have also been frustrated because the U.S. Congress has refused to approve legislation providing extra money to help the IMF make more loans to countries in trouble. The money is part of a broader reform program that would give China and other developing countries more voting power at the IMF.
Uri Dadush, an economist with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, sees no problem with the BRICS countries' development bank and financial crisis fund. But he worries that the five countries' decision to go outside of existing institutions provides more evidence of the "fracturing of the postwar (economic) system that gave us so much peace and prosperity. The system has not been able to adapt to the new reality, the rise of the new powers."
The IMF and the World Bank seem to be taking the new challengers in stride.
"All initiatives that seek to strengthen the network of multilateral lending institutions and increase the available financing for development and infrastructure are welcome," said IMF spokeswoman Conny Lotze. "What is important is that any new institutions complement the existing ones."
Answering a question about the BRICS development bank earlier this month, World Bank President Jim Kim said: "We welcome any new organizations ... We think that the need for new investments in infrastructure is massive, and we think that we can work very well and cooperatively with any of these new banks once they become a reality."
