Romance / Re: My Girlfriend Smelled Of Condom Down There And I Broke Up With Her by dustydee: 11:47am
Davindal:



Being furious, I slapped and pushed her out of my compound.

Today in the afternoon, I sent her final warning to stay clear from me or I will shoot her skull to pieces.

Finally, guys be weary of whom you date. Most ladies out there are evil.
You are a coward for slapping her. You have no right to slap her even if she was your wife. How barbaric.

Comforter In The City - 50 Dundas St, Glasgow G1 2AQ. This is the popular one. I've been there many times.

The Experience Kitchen - 42 London Rd, Glasgow G1 5NB. This is less popular.

There's an African restaurant (I've forgotten the name) along Union Street in the city centre, but I rarely go there because it's below ground level.
I think it is owned by a Kenyan or Zambian. Their pepper soup and Jollof rice is super good. My Uni took us there when some of their Nigerian agents visited.

CeoNewshelm:
Here is a picture analyses of the State house medical center budget from 2013 to 2017 as released by BudgIT.




This is coming as the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, called for a probe into how the budget for the State House Medical Centre is being utilised.


The management of the hospital had said it would seek the commercialisation of the centre to boost its revenue.

It will be helpful if we know how much was spent in that period. A budget does not automatically translate to expenditure.

How many people can survive on £11,500 a year in UK, comfortably? That's poverty, I don't think the OP's aim is to be poor. So if he wants to be a middle class earner, he will be taxed 40%
Middle class earner will typically be taxed at 20%. A single person on £28,000 a year will earn £1860 a month (tax and NI = £473). He/she can comfortably save more than £600 a month. What is the effective tax rate in Nigeria? Please let's not derail this thread.

Good luck bro, soon na weather and tax go be your major concern, everywhere has it's own peculiar issues., takia
The UK tax system is not as bad as you make it look. Someone on £11,500 a year pays less tax than a Nigerian on equivalent pay in Nigeria. It is high for higher earners but some don't mind or simply go contracting where they pay less taxes.

I believe most of us are aware of the $26Billion contract scandal rocking the NNPC. Well, here are the companies licensed by Buhari’s administration to lift crude oil. Most of the companies are linked to Buhari’s chief of staff, Abba Kyari and his cousin Mamman Daura.

Canadianfly:


If anyone who currently lives in UK is rethinking moving to Canada, go find other sources or create a thread and ask people to chime in their thoughts, but derailing this one is not fair on people who know nothing about either countries and are here solely for Canada.
You made some valid points but if this thread is about "Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant", why can't anyone ask questions about that here irrespective of where they live? I agree some have turned it to UK v. Canada but that doesn't mean questions can't be asked especially of those who have lived in both countries. It Just makes the whole process easier. Or why do people ask what they should or should not carry when coming from Nigeria? shouldn't they create another thread as well?
just saying.

400billionman:


Let me ask you.

The contract that EFCC is prosecuting Diezani and Aluko for, were they not executed contracts ?

The arms deal that Dasuki is held for, was military ware not purchased under Jonathan ?
From what I know, Diezieni gave out state assets at a huge discount while Dasuki did not buy arms with the money. Some of the arms purchase money was used to fund the 2015 elections. Where they bought hardware, some were substandard(remember the helicopter crash that killed some officer?).
Not following due process is also a form of corruption, in my opinion except in exceptional circumstances. But there was no where in Kachukwu's letter that he alleged that money was missing. His problem was with the process of award, which I agree should be investigated.
Politics / Re: EFCC Report Against Ibe Kachikwu Sent To Osinbajo, The Vice President Leaks by dustydee: 8:03am On Oct 05
Ddaji:
Following the leakage of the complaint letter written against the NNPC Group Managing Director, Dr Maikanti, by the Minister of State, Dr Ibe Kachukwu, somebody decided to leak EFCC report commissioned on Dr. Kachukwu. There is always two sides to a story. You be the judge. It is mind boggling.
There's no where in this letter that Ibe Kachukwu's name was mentioned. There's no insinuation that he was the source of the funds. This release is "watery" and nothing new from what Sahara reporters had earlier reported.
Next.
Seun's nairaland had to add Ibe kachukwu's name to generate traffic even though he was never mentioned in the report.

Just like I said, it has hit the frontpage. Don't be suprised when you see it on major newspaper headlines. In as much as we all are performing our civic rights by demanding accountability from our leaders and criticising them, shouldn't it be done devoid of lies, propaganda and half truths?

I tire for Seun. Nairaland is selling its credibility for traffic.

Where did $26b go missing? Seun, you are using your site to promote false hood. it is apparent that the author does not like Buhari and has made baseless allegations. When does contract award equate to missing money?

£44k is alot of money in the UK atleast in my industry and that of my wife. e.g In the electrical T & D industry out west, that is around the starting wage for our electricians and technologist (OND level) here. Engineers starts around 90k and in 5 to years could go up to around $140k.. Another 40k from OT is easily obtainable across all cadre.

Those in the oil industry make around double of that.

What province was the job you saw located? I am guessing eastern provinces.

Same for my wife's industry in healthcare. The wage in the UK is just about half of her earnings in CA. In the science, health and tech industry, wages vary accross Canada typically in a west vs east scenario. e.g The big cities jobs starting wage for my wife out east is around $39/hr. While in the west...it starts at around $47.
If that's the case, then Canada should be an attractive destination. Someone said the taxes in the UK are higher but a Canadian lady in my office who just got her UK citizenship said taxes are higher in Canada. She's a management level staff. I used to wonder why she'd take up UK citizenship until I heard her say that.

Nigerian Pepper Soup is a spicy soup made with assorted meat, fish, poultry or bush meat and some hot local spices which gives it a strong and delicious aroma.

Pepper Soup is mostly sold in drinking joints, restaurants and eateries in Nigeria. It is usually named based on the type of meat used in making the soup.

Ingredients
• 500g Assorted Cow Meat (tripe, heart, liver& muscle )...cut into small pieces
• 2 tablespoonful pepper soup spice mix or roasted Calabash Nutmeg a.k.a Ehu /Ehuru/Ariwo after peeling off the roasted skin.
• Habanero/Chilli Pepper (to taste)
• 2 teaspoonful Dry Uziza/basil leaves (optional)
• 1 tablespoonful of ground Crayfish
• 2 Stock cubes/stock powder
• 1 teaspoon thyme (optional)
• 1 medium Onion bulb (chopped)
• Salt - to taste
• Water (as needed)
in the absence of these spices, you can make use of only

Cooking Directions
• First, clean and cook the toughest meat first; which is usually the cow foot and tripe (shaki). Add salt and thyme, pour enough water to cover the meat and leave to cook for 35 minutes on medium heat.

• After 35 minutes, stir and add the cow heart. Cook for 10 minutes and then add the muscle (fuku) and the liver. Stir well and add more water to cover the meat. Add the chopped onions and stock cubes. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

• Next, add the ground pepper, ground crayfish, uziza/basil leaves, the ground pepper soup spices, mix thoroughly and cook for 5 minutes or until the assorted meat are well cooked.

• You just made a sizzling hot pot of Nigerian pepper soup. Serve hot and enjoy. Pepper Soup can be served alone as a side dish with palm wine or any chilled drink of your choice.

• It can also be eaten as a meal, with Eko (agidi), Agidi jollof, boiled yams, boiled potatoes, boiled white rice and boiled plantains.
