The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has reacted to an interview granted to the Sun . “Like my leader and political father, Odumegwu Ojukwu, who was bitterly criticised for ignoring the Zik- led Nigerian Peoples Party (NPP) to join the National Party of Nigeria (NPN), where he felt the interests of Ndigbo and the nation would be better served, I have moved out of a political party which in my own opinion has derailed. I have moved on to a place my contributions towards proper representation of our people would have the level of impact that would make Ikemba rejoice in his grave,” Obi Said Obi said Mrs. Ojukwu, whom he holds in high esteem would later be in a position to judge the propriety or otherwise of recent developments in the party and his actions. He concluded that time will judge all “our actions accordingly.” www.thisdaylive.com/articles/obi-replies-bianca-ojukwu-says-he-left-apga-because-it-had-derailed/191917/

You, and the people who 'liked' your comments are compound illiterates with zero knowledge of how the automative industry operates. For your information, no car maker on earth has all its parts manufactured in-country or in-house. Virtually everything they use to assemble their vehicles is sourced from various vehicle component manufacturers from across the globe. All the car plant does is build or 'assemble' the vehicle using those parts. The car manufacturer rarely manufactures their own parts. In the UK for instance, they have BMW, Honda, Toyota, etc with assembly plants there producing vehicles (over 1 million per annum), and these vehicles are all 'foreign designed' with parts sourced from across the globe. Britain today, despite this, is seen as a major car manufacturing nation. Nobody there says ''Ah.. the Honda brand is not designed in the UK, neither was the BMW, nor were the interior parts made in UK so it is not a made in UK vehicle''. Only ILLITERATES IN NIGERIA REASON LIKE THAT. Fact is WHEREVER a vehicle is built, which is the SAME THING as ''assembled'' is where the vehicle was built. SIMPLE. South Africa today produces 300,000 cars per annum. 95% of that output is from international manufacturers like BMW, Toyota, Hyundai etc etc based in South Africa. The vehicle industry provides jobs and livelihood to millions of South Africans, while enhancing technological development, through the rise of many ancillary services. Nigeria is doing exactly the same thing now. Meanwhile our resident negative-minded, ignorant semi-literates, rather than go learn about the industry, can only pour scorn on what they know nothing about. If you want to contribute to 'indigenization' of the car industry, why not go and learn how to manufacture a component so you can sell to the manufacturers? Is that not what folks do in SA, China, India? Do you expect govt to establish component manufacturing plants too? Instead of you to see the developments as an opportunity to contribute, all you can do is pour scorn. Sit there waiting for govt to wipe your noses. Stupi.d, ignorant mumus.

Yes we pay taxes.. And there is no effective taxation in Nigeria. That is why they are doing what they are doing.. And if you charge the cost to consumers, will they not pay, if they stop paying, that means your service was not meant for them initially.
My simple advise is #WAKE_Up.
Don't expect anything called best from the GOVERNMENT.
Nobody is asking for best from government .
We are asking for basic.
Consumers have no choice, they must pay the high cost.

october 19th of every year is a day seen as a "liberation day" for the Tungbo clan in the Sagbama area of Bayelsa State, as they mark the Ebe-Benimo-Oge Festival to remember when their gods saved them from the hands of Biafran soldiers who had wanted to wipe out the entire community for leaking information of the Biafra Operation Camp in Tungbo to the Nigerian army during the Nigerian civil war of 1967.
Highlights of the festival include firing of cannon shots to declare the festival open, the appearance of the traditional war boats, a re-enactment of the days where the boats served as war armory to convene warriors to the battle grounds, wrestling bouts among able young men, and a sacrifice to a crocodile, which is the Tungbo's symbol of power and authority. The people believe that no crocodile can hurt them so they revere it.http://saharareporters.com/2014/10/20/bayelsa-community-marks-day-resistance-against-biafran-soldiers-tife-owolabi

Ibadan-Lagos Expressway that Obasanjo and co abandoned, GEJ came to rescue it...Apapa-Oshodi Expressway nko?
Nigeria is just too complex and corrupt to be handled by one man without other key-Nigerians' maximum support.
Goodluck is being sabotaged even by past Nigerian leaders who wants him to fail like them...and I keep wondering how Nigerians expect him to turn to a magician that will change Nigeria's long-lasting mistakes overnight.
Our brothers from the north ruled Nigeria for many decades without doing anything aside looting money for themselves and their family...no Nigerian cried fowl except for few...Obasanjo who was the next God-sent man to have turned Nigeria's misery into success never did it, instead he further spread public fund looting, political witch-hunting via EFCC, silent killing of oppositions, etc and now a man with the heart of a servant, Goodluck Jonathan comes in and all Nigerians woke up from their forever sleep to criticise and curse him daily and demanding for magic; God is watching all of us.
Goodluck Jonathan, pls keep doing the best u can and leave the rest for God, simple- when u are gone, Nigerians will start celebrating u, that's their way since 1960 of course.

Lagos West senatorial district which includes Sagamu and Epe (where former Gov of Lagos State, Late Otedola hails from) is not considered by Tinubu and Fashola as part of Lagos.
If you want to see deciet, just drive to the so called Lagos Free Trade Zone (LFTZ) after Ibeju-Lekki, and see how poor and backwards the villages and communities around LFTZ are. You will weep. Along the way you will pass Tinubu's Jin Hua door and stainless steel railings completely knocked down (CKD) assembly plant. It is opposite Amen Housing Estate on a colonial two-lane road re-built by Sir Michael Otedola when he was LASG governor. This Jin Hua business, just like his Oriental Hotel near the 1st toll plaza on Lekki Expressway is fronted for Tinubu by Chinese.
Since Otedola left office, Lagos West has seen no meaningful development.
You don't even know simple lagos geography
Shagamu is in Ijebu ogun state while Epe is Lagos.
The LFTZ is located at AKODO , while Jin Hua is on Eleko road off Epe express road.

Most people don't do their home work before giving jobs to web developers, that is why this web developers defraud a lot of Nigerians.
Simple tasks to consider before talking to a web-developer-
1.Purpose of the website i.e, e-commerce, education e.t.c
2.Web structuring and presenting language i.e HTML5
3.Security i.e SSL certificate
4.Web platforms i.e Mobile, PC e.t.c
5.Payment gateway i.e webpay, interswitch, banks payment platforms e.t.c
6.Cost of structuring and presenting registration i.e .ng ,.com e.t.c
7.Cost of structuring and presenting
Just to mention few.
NOTE- You don't need to give 3,5,6 and 7, any web developer, because their are companies doing those task.
Most fraudulent developers always insist on handling task 3,5,6 and 7, but insist you prefare going to the companies in-charge.

Lemme make some point clear 2 u
1. We are in a country dat supposely supports freedom of religion. D muslim here is only saying; Look, my religion says I should cover my hair ( use the Hijab once I attain puberty) just allow me to practice my religion since my country is not against freedom of religion.
2. D muslims here ain't saying everybody (Christians & idol worshippers inclusive) must use the Hijab
3. Head-covering does not in anyway go against any religion here (Nigeria). Infact, if u know ur Bible very well, the word "Veil" shouldn't be a strange thing to you. #AcientChristianity... Peace unto you bro.
GREAT , if your religion says you should cover your hair ( use the Hijab once I attain puberty), and my religion says I should cover my hair with Veil. Than we should bout be free to wear our Veil(christian) and Hijab(Muslims) to school.

Sir, Imagine there is IRK/CRK as a subject with a very wide curriculum in our schools and there is no way Hijab wouldn't be taught as a model of dressing in Islamic Religion Knowledge(IRK) , then how disheartening would it be for a student to discover she's been barred to dress in compliance with her faith which doesn't constitute disturbances to anyone !!
This is in total contravention to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which allowed for freedom of Religion !!
This student/pupil are being denied their constitutional right in dressing to fulfil their religious right ....... (This doesn't constitute moral/ethical disturbances to anyone) !!
Lagos state will lose this one !!
IRK/CRK is just one subject out of all subjects thought in schools.
IRK/CRK is not compulsory for many WAEC O level.

Muslims are not talking about practising religion in schools
They are talking about wearing hijab by ladies - a dressing that is compulsory outside the home
Seriously how does this affect anyone? Nobody is imposing it on anyone
What? Hijab wearing is a religious practice.
If you remove religious practice from schools, Christians will suffer more, I assure you
They will not be able to subtly preach or hand out tracts!

It is part of their faith, belief and their very essence of life .... It is like going to school without your head !! ..... If a girl aint complete as Oriented that can dis-focus such girl from her study !
The Judge cited religion as not part of education but Religion is education in its own right and education involve religion thus I wonder what the essence of Religion studies in our schools if at the end of the day we won't be allowed to practice what we learned in the curriculum !!
Appeal court is the answer and this should be takened as far as Supreme Court !! .... Hijab is a model of dressing for a Muslim and this pupil/student should never be discriminated against !!
What the Judge is saying is that Nigeria a secular state and that government must maintain neutrality at all times.Those school are MIXED Religious and gender schools, and uniformity is need.
If Muslims insist on hijab, school uniform should be ban.

“Therefore, contrary to the mismanagement of information traceable to the office of the NSA, the Federal Government did not place any direct order for the importation of arms from South Africa. The fact that the NSA signed the End User certificate for the arms importation is not a license for the companies involved in the deal to breach the laws of South Africa.
In other words, the Israeli and two Nigerians who were arrested last month for smuggling the sum of $9.3 million and the Nigerian company involved in the transfer of the $5.7 million to South Africa are not public officers. As independent contractors they were awarded contracts for the supply of arms by the Federal Government and paid accordingly. It is indubitably clear that the suspects were negligent for failing to conduct due diligence”.

| Politics / Re: CRITICAL Reasons Why I Think "Chibok Girls" Is A SCAM And No Girl Was Kidnapped by emmatok: 9:21pm On Oct 14|
You are so FREE to think what you like. If you're OBJECTIVE minded, you can counter my own argument also.
All that every NL, know or think about Chibok Girls, is based on what the media has reported, unless that NLer, is in the BH inner chambers.
Based on what the media has reported so far, I'm yet to be CONVINCED that about 270 girls were kidnapped.
All over the world, whenever we hear/read about kidnappings, the universal language is RELEASE RELEASE and RELEASE, how come in Nigeria, it's " BRING BACK"? Who should bring back the girls? Who coined " BRING BACK"?
How come the bring back crew is yet to condemn BH? Or use RELASE OUR GIRLS, which is the SENSIBLE thing to say. How come the " Bring back our girls " crew is yet to ask the Borno state Govt, to bring back the girls, cos from what I read, they disobeyed an ORDER,not to conduct an exam?
How come "Bring back our girls" went viral and all the western media and political leaders HYPED it like they really care?
How come " Bring back our girls" has become an NGO, ask Russia, Ukraine, Egypt, etc, how all these so called "NGO's" are being use to fuel REGIME CHANGE or SOCIAL UNREST.
How come Oby Ezekwesili, an ELITIST IGBO lady , is so so "CONCERNED " about missing girls in Maidugiri? When did the love start? When did Elitist & Uppity folks like Oby & El rufai started caring about THE POOR MASSES? (by their fruits we shall know them).
Is Maidugiri, bigger than Africa? meaning, how is it possible to safely hide 270 girls safely and nobody have seen them?
If USA, can pick & intercept intelligence about the location of Osama Bin Laden and Anwar Al- Awlaki, in Pakistan and Yemen, respectively, killed them, then, how IMPOSSIBLE for USA, not to see the so called "missing girls ?
Count 270, recount it, we are not talking about 27 girls, how are these girls been fed up till now? How many BH, men watches over 270 girls, and how many goes out to fight? Cos they've been actively fighting all these months. It doesn't add up.
These "Bring back our girls " crew always CREEP OUT THEIR HEAD whenever the Nigerian Military rolls out successful news of how they've dealt with BH. Or Jonathan scored some points in politics or governance. Or you'll hear, " oh, one chibok girl was found wandering around Ikoyi", ( just to remind the world that GEJ, is still INCOMPETENT). Check all the active names in the Bring back girls campaign, they're all APC stalwarts, why? Coincidence?
Yes, GEJ, met with some parents, but GEJ, is in Aso Rock, he can only meet people that Borno state Govt. presented to him, so, it means nothing to me.
ISIS, AL QEDA,AL SHABA, TALIBAN, etc, all these veteran terrorist organizations, kidnapped to kill or to demand ransom, you can't see them kidnapping hundreds of people at one swoop, cos it's IMPOSSIBLE to mobilize men and logistics for such.
If Abubakar Shekau has been killed, I expected the girls to be found where he was killed, cos the girls and Shekau are supposed to be in BH's safest haven.
Further, Obasanjo's comment " The Chibok girls may never be found", for all I care, OBJ,( sleeper agent ) and his international conspirators orchestrated THE CHIBOK SCAM to embarrass Jonathan and make sure there's a platform to ORGANIZE A SOCIAL UNREST incase GEJ, wins 2015 election.
How come the immediate families of these girls ain't protesting or disturbing Borno state govt to BRING BACK THEIR GIRLS? They've all died, silenced, they don't care anymore or can't do it cos of BH? But Oby and co can do it freely in Abuja? Yea rite!
Where are all the INDIGENOUS Maidugiri, women and youths? I'm only seeing Oby, an indigene of Anambara, spearheading a maidugiri, affair, then SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT! IT's FISHY! THERE's A SINISTER MOTIVE. When did Igbo start loving fulani/kanuri so badly? Oby has never protested about thousands of Igbos, that BH, has killed, yet she's doing this for Chibok? IT's AN INTERNATIONAL SCAM, which she can handle well cos she has the contact.
THE URGE TO STOP GEJ, IS/WILL DESTROY Nigeria, will do nobody no good and these GREEDY ELITES will CATCH A FLIGHT AND FLEE WITH THEIR FAMILIES.
OH, so the international community is now fighting Nigeria.
