|Islam for Muslims / Re: Franck Ribery Furious Over Beer Bath by free R1: 8:47pm On May 18|
Go to India and publicly request for beef, see what happens. Organize a part, feed a white vegetarian with meat and see what will happen. Remove the fact that he is a muslim and consider other scenarios, then you will understand to respect people's believes.

|Politics / Re: Osun Names Airport After Abiola by free R1: 6:31pm On May 03|
This is not about ACN or PDP, it is about simple economics. Your point noted, "the rail is working" but the airport serves a good purpose too. I expect export to international markets soon. The airport in Osun will create employment and also generate revenue for the state "that is fact". I also expect the state to begin marketing its tourism potentials especially the Osun Oshogbo festival. An airport in the state will also be excellent for this purpose.
|Politics / Re: Osun Names Airport After Abiola by free R1: 3:38pm On May 03|
misterh: This is not about remaining stagnant. It's called scale of preference in basic economics. There are better issues to contend with. The capital city, Osogbo is the only place where enough economic activities take place. Others are just small towns where majority of the people there are low income earners. It's not to bulid airports but will airlines patronise your airport?
Scale of preference does not fly here. Let me educate you a little bit. Osun is a land locked state which is a serious disadvantage for any economy because of the restrictions of the mode of transportation to air, road and rail. The rail is clearly not there so this calls for good air and road system. If Osun can develop its agricultural sector which is clearly doing and make it as good as that in Kwara state, air system will definitely be needed. I will expect them to target the international market. People here have argued that the airports in Ibadan and Lagos is enough for this purpose but why should he create more jobs for the other states when he is not in "full employment economy" and why should he not maximize the state’s revenue generating from agriculture, mining and now aviation? Its basic economics, true!!
|Politics / Re: Obi Betrayed My Father – Ojukwu Jr by free R1: 3:17pm On May 03|
Most people and I may not like Tinubu but this further buttresses the fact that the man is a true leader; APGA has 2 sitting governors with so many crises. ACN has 6 governors and several legislators but you rarely hear of crisis. I think this is the reason PDP is scared of this man.
|Religion / Re: Private Jets: CAN Slams Kukah, Bakare by free R1: 6:01pm On Nov 20, 2012|
Techwriter: There is no need for a response. Kukah said his mind based on his level of understanding and does not represent the opinion of most of us who believe nothing wrong with our pastors having the good things of life provided it was gotten legit. Oyedepo for instance has never taken any political stance, he is not seeking the favor of any political leader to be relevant. He is not seeking their favor for anytn.
I bet you were not in Nigeria when Bishop Oyedepo was flown to Saudi and he told us Yaradua was in good health and he spoke to him, we all know now that it was a lie; if he does not get any favor from govt why lie? The problem with Nigerians is that we forget!!!

kpolli: Dear all,
I totally agree with the finish your NYSC suggestion but the other part, not really. It all depends on your plan and God's favor. If you are a top student, after your masters, Yankee Coys can employ you straight and apply for 5yrs work visa for you. If this happens the your experience would be better valued than the nigerian one. Some people without being top also get employed nd get der work visas after MSc. The koko is, have infos, you don't av to marry white babe to change status, there are a lot of visa categories we have no idea abt. So the plan is simple, go to school, finish, try to get a job and get your work visa (never say impossible)!

If you are really interested in funding, I think you should target August (Fall). Schools financial year begin in August and this is when money for funding is budgeted for. Larger part of that money is used up at this period, which makes getting funds in spring and summer a bit difficult (not impossible)so due to your CGPA ie your are not that strong (blv me, your transcript is like d most important doc considered), I suggest you consider fall or try for spring, if you don't get funds, differ till Fall and re-apply for funds.
Answers to the other questions would be on the schools website, you would see stuff like toefl is waived for students from countries where english is there official language, so you can free toefl if that's the case. Before applying for GA, RA etc, check for Profs that share your research interest, mail them, tell them about your interest (some won't reply) but the koko is write your SOP and GA essay if required like you are directing it to them, much focus on your research area and what you have done to guarantee ur success in it.
|Politics / Re: Shehu of Borno Escapes Bomb Attack by free R1: 10:23pm On Jul 13, 2012|
mekaboy: ASSUMING I WAS BOKO HARAM MEMBER, AND I HAVE DECIDED TO KILL MYSELF AND OTHERS, I HAVE A BOMB ON ME, WHAT CAN GEJ DO TO STOP ME ?
First, GEJ has d mandate to setup strong institutions to build a strong economy, which will provide you good and sustainable job to make u busy. So you won't av time 2 be brain washed 2 kill urself. IF THIS FAILS,
Second, He has d mandate to setup strong institutions that will get intelligent reports on people brain washing people, so that they can be arrested and prosecuted. Again you wud av bn saved. IF THIS FAILS,
Third, He has d mandate to setup strong institutions that will prevent you from making or getting bombs. IF THIS FAILS,
Fourth, He has d mandate to setup strong institutions that will get intelligent reports on possible attacks so that they can prevent u from harming ursef nd others. IF THIS FAILS!!! Then he is grossly incompetent.
This incompetence is similar to the Barclay's Bank CEO and Goldman sacs CEO resignation. They did not directly commit d atrocities but bcus they failed to setup frame works 2 prevent such, it is termed incompetence, therefore, they had 2 b eased off.

all4naija: Stop giving excuses for ways to oppressed the female in many Islamic countries. You speak as if what you listed above don't happen in Islamic nations. Come on open your mind! Piecing a tongue doesn't mean anything bad if not in you holistic mind with intentions to imprison others. slowpoke!
How many molestation cases, HIV etc have you heard about in Saudi or Vatican. If an 18 year old pierce his/ her tongue, I really don't care, but an 11 year old, I think she will curse her parents sooner or later. There should always be control at this age. Pls don't let sentiment cloud ur judgment.

I think the world is mean to us all, for bringing HIV/AIDS, molestation, prostitution, gay marriage, Indecency, stealing, corruption etc How can you explain Willow Smith @ 11 piercing her tongue, I think her parents are mean to her in the name of modern world. I think protecting you people from such acts either male or female is reasonable.

The toefl is low but got u admission, so don't be bothered just be confident. As for SAT, please get a waiver letter. If you can't , simply lay your claims confidently and convincingly eg VO: Did you do SAT, U: No, it was waived for me cus of my HND nd ND then VO: Why go for a 2nd UG nd not graduate studies, your answer @ this point is what will determine weather you get a visa or not. (Pls let ur ans include d benefit of the UG to ur current job and you will b back 2 d job).

smartmachine: Hello mate,
Yes, the bank statement is good and Yes you should go with the toefl, printout will do. A study leave will do a lot of good. It should indicate you will be back to your current job. Also, know the added benefit you will get from the UG course which will be beneficial to your current job.

Hmmm, a lot has been said about associate degree here, anyway, if you are sure that's what's best for you, just build up a good case for yourself ie make sure right from 2007 you have either been busy in school or working. Don't leave any space for idleness. Eg You were admitted to OAU in 2k8, been there till now but due to consistent strike, your program is taking longer than expected which is the reason you wana leave anyway. Trust me, they know about these strikes. My 2kobo

Standardized exams is not a criteria but I believe a necessity. If you are going as a transfer student, I believe your toefl will do, if not, your toefl is good to go but pray hard and be ready with convincing answers. In all, God is important, so all the best.

genxris: I was denied visa ön d 20th in Lagos,i hav a low gmat score(300) but anyway after i share my experience u guys can determine d main reason i was denied (even though i had gradate asistance from d skol of almost d half of my fees)
Put yourself in the VO's position, an applicant is going for a course that has lots of quantitative, he then present a score of 1 percentile in QT (d lowest possible), what does it tell me, HE CAN'T COPE simple. That automatically reduces your chance to like 10%. My proposed "going forward" reapply, when the VO asks 4 ur Gmat, give him the report, ur transcript and ur GA letter. Also get convincing reasons for leaving your current job and in your buildup, indicate you will be back to your job. My 2kobo

Billyonaire: Why are you attacking Beaf's input, I assumed you and I had scores of debates to round up. I am scared of ignorance and I have 200 Watt illuminating beam to brighten up the illusions of your mind.
I never attacked beaf's input, only made a comment which did not incite nor insult anyone here. As per me being ignorant, ermmmm, issokay, I won't throw any words at you. Anyway, what baffles me about you is the aggressiveness of your comments on people's input. We can never always agree 100% and the moment we do agree 100% in everything, then we have stopped thinking. That brings me to tolerance, tolerance is not just about practice your religion and I practice mine, it is also about say your mind, i say mine, go ahead with your ways and I go with mine as long as it does not go against morality and humanity which I guess I have not. If you can't be tolerant in a faceless forum like this and allow people have their say (even if it doesn't make sense you can either laugh and pass or put yours)then you are no better than BH who wants to force us to accept there ways!!!

Don't insult, just make your comment and pass, anyway, Y end of the year? Is it statutory? I don't need mine end of the year, I need it in May to celebrate the Jewish day or ramadan or sallah, is that a problem? A lot of companies and countries financial year does not follow the calendar year, in fact most start in August, so why wait till December to pay bonuses? Are you into finance? (if you are not find out from CBN, DMO, Bureau of Stat) check our debt profile and foreign reserves in the last two years and you will understand why GEJ might be the worst man.

Billyonaire: I am not sure you even understand what you are saying and what you mean by law taking its course " The natural law says, he who kills by the sword, should die by the sword." Natural laws are superior to all others, now which laws are you talking about ?
Very correct but the question is who attacked first, Law enforcement or Yusuf? What really lead to the burning of police station which started this mess? Just to inform you, no one not even natural law (nature) can brand someone a criminal except a competent court of appropriate Jurisdiction or any authority which has been conferred with such powers. And to fault your natural law, He who kills by the sword might be insane ie won't die by the sword but be helped to get better ie the Norway case killings

All we hear of is funny names and funny Aboki faces are paraded, thereafter more attacks, BH will then deny the capture of their people and call the media and SSS liars. Who make we believe sef for this matter. Ok, let SSS capture Shekau. at least we have seen his face on his youtube videos and can identify him, let them do that and they will get credit from me. For now, abeg make this news shift for other true or comedy news.
