Politics / Re: Appointments: Buhari, APC Move To Pacify S’east by free2ryhme: 10:15am
Yhunoos:
There were indications on Saturday that President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress had begun moves to compensate the South-East for not getting any appointments so far in the current administration.

SUNDAY PUNCH reliably gathered that some states in the geopolitical zone might get more than one ministerial slot.

The Presidency and the APC sources, who spoke to SUNDAY PUNCH on condition of anonymity, also justified the appointments made by Buhari on Thursday.

A top member of the party said the President was not unmindful of criticisms that greeted the alleged lopsided appointments.

He said, “The President has assured us that all zones that have not been represented in the appointments he has made so far will be compensated.

“For example, some states in the South-East may get more than one ministerial slots. The President is going to make board and ambassadorial appointments. All zones, including the South-East, will be represented in this government.”

Prominent Nigerians and socio-political groups, have criticised the appointments made by Buhari so far.

Out of 31 appointments made so far, 24 of the appointees are from the North and seven are from the South. The South-East has no representation in the Buhari-led government.

SUNDAY PUNCH however gathered that the emergence of the new Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pastor David Lawal, and the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, was the result of the politics among power blocks in the APC.

It was learnt that the two appointees belonged to the Congress for Progressive defunct Change, which Buhari led, before it merged with other parties to form the APC

A Presidency source told one of our correspondents that Lawal and Kyari were picked because of their closeness and loyalty to the President.

The source said, “Although the President is a loyal member of the party, the levels of trust he has in the members differ. There are various blocks in the APC.

“You don’t give appointments such as chief of staff and the SGF to your rival or his loyalists; you give them to those you can vouch for. Those posts are ears and eyes of the President and they are not subjected to the party’s ratification.”

It was also gathered that the latest appointments confirmed the existence of various power blocks in the APC.

It will be recalled that the CPC, led by Buhari, merged with the Action Congress of Nigeria, the All Nigerians Peoples Party and a faction of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, led by the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, to form the APC.

They were later joined by five governors, who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar also defected from the PDP to the APC.

Meanwhile, the Presidency, on Saturday, assured Nigerians that by the end of the series of appointments being made by Buhari, no part of Nigeria would feel alienated.

The Special Assistant to the President on Media Affairs, Mr. Garba Shehu, said this in a telephone interview with one of our correspondents.

When asked if the South- East and other parts of the country, who are complaining of being marginalised by Buhari would be compensated, Shehu said appointments so far made by the President were just a few out of so many that would be made by the President.

He said, “There will be ministers, heads of government departments, federal boards and ambassadors. At the end of the exercise, no part of the country will be left feeling left out.”

Bull s--t! The ministerial appointments amount to nought. The duty of govrerment is at the Villa, where PMb has already filled with Northerners. In short, the official language of govenment may be English but its code is now Hausa. This is the unfairness to many other ethnic groups in the country. PMB has to reverse some of these key appointments

How can you attract foreign investors when you have Boko in the North, militants in the south and IPOB brewing in the east?
When you can barely supply 10hrs of electricity daily? when the investors are a multiple taxation target for state governments and host communities?

Truth is; Naira is not ready to compete yet that is the sad truth. The touted biggest GDP in Africa is a function of consumption based on population nothing more.

Politics / Re: Photo Of The 72-Year-Old Carpenter Fayose Made Caretaker Of A LGA by free2ryhme: 8:03pm On Aug 29
metroparrot:


Above is the photo of Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state and the 72 year old carpenter, Pa Olatunde Afolayan, who appointed as the caretaker chairman of Moba Local Government. While appointing him yesterday August 28th, Fayose said;

"In my government, whether you are educated or not, you will get something. The vote of a professor and an illiterate is the same. So, under my administration, those who are not educated can rise to any level they want.”

Responding, Pa Afolayan said

"I have never gone to school for a day, but that does not diminish my intelligence. I may not be educated or certificated, but I have the experience to pilot the affairs of the council. I promise to surpass the records left behind by my predecessors to justify Governor Fayose’s assertion that local people are intelligent and visionary.”.

Family / Re: Did I Do The Right Thing In This Situation?? by free2ryhme: 5:58pm On Aug 29
sundayslim:
My landlord and his wife, along with some other neighbors think I'm a wicked person that doesn't like children. This is because I don't allow their children come to play in my apartment. Let me tell you the short story:

I moved in about 7 months ago, and my landlord lives just beside my flat. Everyday, his children (ages 2, 6 and 9) always come to knock that they want to come and play. Sometimes they say they want to watch cartoons since I have a dstv.

The problem is, I live alone, I'm single and I don't have any children for them to play with. I spend most of my time at work except weekends when I love to cook. The children usually come during weekends.

I decided not to let them come and play because I've been hearing about "65 yr old rapes this", " 25 yr old defines that ". I'm still very young, and please don't get me wrong: I'm not saying I have plans to defile anyone's child or that I'm capable of doing that.

I usually see these children going to other flats and other houses on the street to " play" and I don't want a case where someone will defile any of them and I automatically become a suspect, that's why I decided not to let them come in. In fact, when they knock, I don't even answer once I know it's them.

Now, people in the area are saying I'm a bad person that's why I don't like children. I don't want to tell them my reasons.

Dear nairalanders, did I do the right thing? Is there a better way of handling this situation?
Please advice.

Crime / Re: How Banks, Govt Officials Aided Marketers To Loot Subsidy Billions... by free2ryhme: 2:30pm On Aug 29

http://www.vanguardngr.com/2015/08/revealed-how-banks-govt-officials-aided-marketers-to-loot-subsidy-billions/



Some truth but not all for the purpose that it seems. Read in between lines, you will know the writer is hired to give strength and fire to the probe crusade.
For whatever purpose this write up is meant for, no blame should be ascribed to Jonathan as far as fuel subsidy corruption saga is concern. This man Jonathan saw all these complex and monstrous subsidy system and stood his ground that subsidy must be removed just to save Nigerians the age long monster that have made few wicked Nigerians dubiously and excessively rich at the expense of the suffering masses, but the same Nigerians that are crying "hoo and hii" today staged a masterminded nation wide protest against it even degenerated to "occupy Nigeria slogan" like those of the Arab states in the middle east.

Please give us a break, where were the likes of this writer that time? Why did they not expose all these to vehemently support Jonathan in removing the subsidy. Our problem in this nation is that we are always playing "the black cat umpire.". It will not help us. We known for long that much evils have been going on in this fuel subsidy system but we decided to trade truth for politics. The then Opposition party was against the removal and used NLC to stop Jonathan from stopping the fuel subsidy for flimsy excuses. Now that they have entered power, they are using every means possible including hired writers to cry foul and asked for the head of their predecessors. Too bad for this nation.
The subsidy system is a complex system especially when dealing with those heartless and greedy petroleum marketers. They are high level syndicates that can outsmart any government. Since Buhari entered, do you know how much fake fuel subsidy bills that has been accrued and documented as liabilities against the government by these voracious wolf marketers.

For me, the best thing to do is remove the fuel subsidy entirely. If not, this same story will still emerge after Buhari has left govt if we do not activate the existing refineries and build new ones to stop fuel importation.
