MosakuAW:


Yes! you are right.

People are just getting it twisted. I said NASS republic. Are people saying NASS is not a republic on its own, based on the definition of Republic below:

A state in which supreme power is held by
the people and their elected representatives,
and which has an elected or nominated
president rather than a monarch.

The first person that started this, thought i was talking about Nigeria republic on its own rather, i was refering to NASS as a Republic.

Thanks @barcanista

Oga cool down,
National assembly is neither a state or a country, but a legislative arm of a state or country.
The word REPUBLIC don't apply to the National assembly.

If you have counter augment, kindly provide with facts.

I wish everyone who commented above can read my comment. Please forgive these young ones for they know not what they are doing. If you notice, these are all first termers. This is their first break since entering the NDA. During the 3 months prior to this break, we go through a phase designed to instil confidence. This is a result of that confidence (the negative part) and youthful exuberance. All of us did dis in our first year but believe me 80 percent of us, after the first year always felt ashamed Weneva we remembered the shenanigans of the first year. Please note that if you stand up to this young men and refuse the mostly dumb orders, NOTHING will happen. They'll look at you as a civilian that has confidence in himself too. Once again, I apologise on behalf of my comrades. They will learn. Stop relating this to the rest of us fighting insurgents in the NE. We welcome constructive criticism. No need to insult or belittle our efforts in fighting terror. We are the only thing standing between you and the terrorists

No Sir, NOI was a former Managing Director of WB. Her position was senior to that of Oby and Otteh. Only the President was higher than her when she was there.

NOI was a world bank VP




Prior to her ministerial career in Nigeria, Okonjo-Iweala was vice-president and corporate secretary of the World Bank Group. She left it in 2003 after she was appointed to President Obasanjo's cabinet as Finance Minister on 15 July.

I think CNBC won this arguement, one would expect madam Oby to again refute CNBC's claim that Oby was just VP of african region and not VP of world bank, but she didn't. Guess she realised she lost the arguement.
Anyway, she shouldn't have replied that tweet or should have done better than saying "Google is a friend" wasn't too classy in my opinion.

What's wrong with you people,

World bank has a lot of VPs
NOI was a VP
OBY is VP
OTEH is a VP

All are VPs for world bank.

Family / Re: Is This Man Action Justified? by emmatok: 10:51pm On Jul 23
Jollyjoy:
My neighbour and his wife have been married for the past two years but just recently tragedy struck leading to divorce on ground of infedility on the woman"s part.. The man"s properties were shared among the two children after that the man went abroad with the other child leaving the woman with the younger one. Two days ago,we learnt the man was in town,so the ex-wife went to the man house demanding for more money for the child upkeep,instead of harkening to her request,the man not only arrested her but sent some youths to evade the woman"s store... Now my question is_:_ is the man action justified? even if divorced is the man not suppose to care for the other child? Cc: lalasticlala.

In divorce cases it is the court that makes decisions and not the parties.

If the court demands the man pays the woman for children upkeep, good. But if not, that's left for the man to decide.

But the woman can't just walk up to him demanding for money. The child should be sent to his father, If she can't take care of the child.

Politics / Re: Opinion!! Was President Buhari Visit To America A Flop? by emmatok: 7:51pm On Jul 23
barcanista:
Every patriotic Nigerian will admit that the President Journey to the USA was more of a National embarrassment and a complete flop. He had nothing concrete to discuss with Obama. Instead of keeping quiet, he mis-called his party name "All Nigeria People's Congress (ANPC)". He couldn't secure Obama's commitment in our fight against terrorism nor even discussed policy issues, and give proposal to Obama on how they can help him achieve success in his policies (perhaps he has no policy). He had nothing absolutely to say.

Wonder why Obama left him to Secretary of State John Kerry and travelled to Kenya? Because he realised that the man he invited is a complete joke. Obama means business

May God Help Us

But these student didn't meet these universities cut-off, which above Jamb cut-off.

Eden007:
It's really sad to read about this from jamb. I tell anybody that cares to listen that corruption is a way of life in Nigeria. This is a clear case of an individual trying to benefit financially from a useless policy at the detriment of people's future. This is a serious threat to our nation's peaceful co-existence.

My humble suggestion is, JAMB should be scrapped! Universities should conduct their aptitude tests directly. Candidates should be selected based on their grade points in their ssce examinations. In addition to that, there should be a set out method used for calculating grade points from ssce results.

Furthermore, to digress a little from the topic, I would love to appeal to the government to scrap NYSC! Its essence has been defeated. Money used for nysc should be used to empower graduates for small and medium enterprises. Graduates should be qualified for a grant of 250,000 each immediately after graduation. If you calculate 19,800 for 13 months, it amounts to almost the same amount.

The problem is not Jamb but the Universities.
Jamb official cut-off for this year is 180.
But when this schools set their cut-off higher, Jamb got no choice, but to move students to other Universities.

She is right at the bolded. It is her home and for reasons best known to her, she does not want you there. Perhaps her husband did not ask of her permission before allowing you in there. Perhaps your mother did something or said something about her. You are the guest there and she does not want you. You should not talk back at her or run around doing childish stuff.

I think you should leave her home but if you have nowhere to go, keep quiet. If she finds your trouble, keep quiet and move on. She will get tired with time. Just ignore her. Greet her, if she dey form vex, crack one small joke if you can and move along. All the best. Try and get something small even if its teaching job. Anything to get you out of the house and out of her hair. May God open doors and help you bro.

Comments from some women on this thread is so crazy.

So it's ok for a woman treat her husband's family anyhow, you ladies forget that same woman might need the assistance or support of the husband family in the future.

This is the reason why businesses fail, if i may ask why are u not using 3310 phone or the old school pentium 2 laptops? the world has evolved more than a reputable company not having a website, for example i know an online store that made over N64,000,000 sales last year from online sales, these store have a physical store too, it will just get to a point where people naturally will sit at the comfort of their homes to make transaction the businesses that cant adapt will just automatically start making losses then later fold up

Not every business need online store. The cost of PAYMENT GATEWAY alone will drive them away.

Go check Jumia and Konga, 80% of the their sales are paid on delivery, most people don't pay online that's Nigeria for you.

If a business website is not driving down the running cost and increasing profitability, that business don't need a website.

I am not surprised that APC lied against Wike, that's what they know how to do best - LIES AND PROPAGANDA.

Was Wike at the CJN chamber?
“A senior official in the CJN chamber intercepted Governor Wike and advised that it is a policy of the CJN not to entertain visits of politicians, especially those with cases in the courts.

“Consequently, Governor Wike left at that point, even though he tried to state reasons for his visit, which included the issue of the appointment of substantive Chief Judge for his state and to thank the CJN for sending the Bayelsa State Chief Judge to swear him into the office.
“In fact, his Lordship was not even aware of the visit until the next morning. The CJN therefore did not see the governor as reported in the said dailies.”

Lmao. You sound pained - don't cry lol. I had tons of Igbo co'ds growing up and none could speak Igbo and the average Igbo out here is involved in crime as well, ditto Edos. But you can't blame Yorubas for speaking their language everywhere and stamping their culture all over London.

Heck, 99.9% of Nigerian business in London are owned by Yorubas and most Igbos in London also speak Yoruba (I don't know why but maybe it is cos they lived with Yorubas in naij).

I reiterate: Congolese folks, Somalis, and Ghanaians commit all the crimes Nigerians commit out here - how come their languages aren't on the list? Heck, Congo boys have a big gang in North Ldn, and run a big fraud and drug syndicate. Ditto Ghanaians. And Somalis are some of the most violent people you will ever meet.

In-fact most Nigerians abroad in London comfortably speaks Yoruba
