Politics / Re: NSCDC Destroys 13 Illegal Refineries In Rivers by dustydee: 2:27pm On May 07
I don't get it, a product is scarce, someone finds a way of making it available, rather than encourage him you destroyed it. First it was creativity even though its criminal you can legalise it.

2nd it meets the need of the people, demand of the product is high for Gods sake, we even import fuel. And we say we're encouraging local production start with legalizing local refineries.

3rd it reduces the rate of unemployment, is the the govt still looking for chances to create employment especially for those who wants a job in oil and gas?

4th it will make the naija delta guys less aggressive, na for their land o, allow them do their thing at least make them feel among the follow cut oil share. Now that you've destroyed their local refineries do you think you can oparete your foreign refineries freely?

Or you think the moment you destroy this refineries they go back home and sit down.

Abeg make person wey get sense borrow govt small, make them do the needful.

For me, I see opportunities in the endeavor of these kids.
There are already legal means for refining products. All they need is to get a license. I assure you that they will not be in business if their activities were legal. Add the cost of quality control, cost of crude, personnel cost, safety measures and so on even with zero tax, they won't be profitable. This is simply because with their technology, they are unable to maximise yield leading to waste of crude.

Even Little children as young as 7-9 years do surf. I asked a kid how he learnt to surf, he said they learnt from those white people.
Saw the visit of the US ambassador to your island today. I immediately recognised the name when I heard it on TV. I hope the government will heed his advise and provide basic amenities.

Travel / Re: I Finally Got To America-thanks Nairaland! by dustydee: 8:23am On Apr 21


Im not too good with the web. Still getting training on how to manage a blog. I will do my best. I am finishing the report this week and will send it to as many people as want it free. I will post it on Nairaland too.

Bro-that visa cost me money-i have to make the money back! Since I cannot work here-I already planned on some juicy things I could do to make money. All legal o! There was a thread on NL some years back-and I got my ideas from there. I have mainly just bought some cheap items and brought them to Naija first time I came. I was able to make contacts here then -and the relationships have continued. Its all buying here and selling in Naija.
how do you intend to get your green card? or are you going to be shuttling between Nigeria and the US every 6 months? won't that raise suspicion of the border agents? Thanks.
Politics / Re: Danladi Umar Keeps Saraki Waiting Today by dustydee: 1:33pm On Apr 20
The Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Danladi Umar on Wednesday kept the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, waiting for one hour-forty minutes before commencement of trial.
Umar had previously announced that the tribunal shall commence sitting as from 10pm till 6pm on a daily basis.

Checks by DAILY POST revealed that Umar had previously kept the Senate President waiting.

Umar had yesterday arrived the tribunal one hour-forty minutes late without an apology.

However, at today’s resumed hearing, Umar apologised for coming late saying, “I’m sorry for coming late and by tomorrow, we will start by 10 o’clock.”

Seun this is getting ridiculous. From the story, can you or your moderators point out the "why"?

My time here is nearing an end.

Travel / Re: A Nairalander's Experiences On The Train From Port-Harcourt To Kano In Pictures by dustydee: 1:27pm On Apr 20

First, I observed that the train was faster than many people think. We left Portharcourt by 7am and reached Enugu around 3pm , something I never thought would be possible with the Nigerian train. Well, you should know that there is no traffic jam associated with the train.
8 hrs?

What is wrong if she flies 1st class as long as she can afford it? And how do we know it is not a false accusation? I bet if they had seen her in first class someone would have taken a picture secretly.

I think Nairaland is bigger than some nonsense Title. Nairaland to me is beginning to lose it's value. There is no amount of traffic your looking for you don't have. Admin pls Maintain professional journalism.

Same thoughts here. I was even considering leaving before I saw your post. Nairaland now is more about the cash now than credibility.

APC is suffering from numerical madness.

Our budget is 6.9 trillion.

We are now left with 3billion

How come buhari packed brainless and dullardss around him just to dull theirselves.

600 billion has nine zeros.
Per annum means every year.
Always look before you leap.

Business / Re: Packaged Dried Catfish Business. Is It Profitable? by dustydee: 9:41am On Apr 12

I don't agree with that tho u have a point.....I supply civil servants that basically eat the fish with garri and when it is too salted, that can't be possible and even dangerous
You mean people eat dry fish without cooing it? Wow. Maybe oven dried but I prefer smoked fish to dried fish because of the cooking process involved.
During my undergrad, the agric department had solar dryers with dried smelly fish in them. That put me off dried fish till now.
Phones / Re: Does It Mean No Internet Service Provision For Those With 2/3g Phones On Ntel? by dustydee: 9:21am On Apr 12

I want to correct a notion here that alot of people have been making. There's this misconception that all 4G providers must natively provide legacy 2G and 3G service. This is generally the case but isn't a hard carved rule.

Each of these services 2G, 3G or 4G requires spectrum to be purchased which costs a lot of money. This is regulated by NCC.

If NTEL have not purchased any bands in the 2G/3G spectrum according to 3GPP standards, then they cannot support that service.

Right question now would be, has NTEL been allocated spectrum for 2G or 3G? This is something I don't know about and hence can't make comments on.

I hope this is clear enough.


NITEL had a 2G license which was transferred to ntel. I do not know if ntel has started operating the license.

Politics / Re: $60 Billion Lagos To Calabar Was In The Budget: PDP Senator by dustydee: 2:38pm On Apr 11

How can u defend what was not included in the budget? I believe both Ameachi and the committee were working with the scripts of the Budget. Here you can clearly hear about the Kano-Lagos and its connecting routes. You can also hear the emphasis of Calabar-Lagos, stating all routes. Who is deceiving who now. Truth is many of the senators were not involved in the passage of the Budget....they left it only the committee hence they don't even know much details. Watch the defence below. Skip to about the 5th minute

Oga, this video is not for budget defence.

Where did he state that he regrets removing Gadhaffi? Stop twisting stories to satisfy yourself. Even the source you quoted didn't caption it like you have.

After dat one that is 27mins, click on d next and u will the railway.

That's a different one. It's an investigative hearing and not a budget defence.

Politics / Re: Amaechi Defended Lagos-Calabar Project Budget (sahara Reporters) by dustydee: 9:12am On Apr 11

How can he defend a project that has no funds appropriated for its execution. Was he making a case for its inclusion? Or defending a ghost project. Or it was probably inserted after the original document got missing from the National Assembly.
In that case you make a case for it's inclusion. The NASS did the same for their budget so I see no problem here. The whole thing is not a big issue and should have been managed better but I sense it is the media that is trying to pitch one arm of government against another. Unfortunately it hasn't been handled well so far by both arms.

It may not have been in the budget but I believe it was included during the budget defence.

Did anyone notice the "Promo pack" sticker on some cartons? Unilever needs to investigate where they came from if it wasn't donated to the church by them. I suspect a marketer sold the packs he/she was meant to distribute free of charge.

Business / Re: Help! First Bank Is Charging Me Monthly Withdrawal Fee On My Savings Acct!! by dustydee: 9:36am On Apr 08
my brother ecobank deducts 100 naira from my account every month,when I logded a complaint in their office,I was told it is for access fee,Nigeria banks are seriously stealing from their customers .which one is access fee

Ecobank used to do that to me. It took me about 2 years of emailing them to finally stop the deductions. The final nail was when they referred me to the CBN guideline about charges. I downloaded and read it and there was nothing like that approved and I pointed it out to them. They "apologised" and stopped the charges. The next phase, when I have time, is to push for a refund.
