Politics / Re: Man Beaten To Pulp For Defending Gays (photos) by Gbawe: 6:45pm
This man did the right thing. Sadly he is dealing with savages and ALUU cavemen. Those willing to lynch and murder a fellow man, in cold blood, simply because of intimate prejudice should remember that there are many places worldwide where they too will be lynched mercilessly by hate-filled racist barbarians who hate black people and insist we are all "dirty scum" who have no right to life.

Nigerian gays too should tone-down their display of public affection because they must be sensitive to the reality of the society they live in. Nonetheless, no one should be lynched or summarily executed because of their intimate preference. That is a level of savagery no one should support because we can all be victims of discrimination sooner or later.

We know that Adejumo ishola is 15mil naira richer. We know that these youth are hungry and only want a little crumb of the $20 billion dollars. Feed them, for you made them jobless and hungry. On the election day the real yoruba youths will vote you out!

Bro, it is called "chop dollar". Take the money and do the opposite of what you were paid for. Every hungry Nigerian is now tuned in to the fortune to be made praise-singing a President who is surely a candidate for worst leader in the world. Abeg, make the boys chop small before the messiah of corruption and ineptitude is kicked out.

Herbalist gringo, better find and stick to your level . Why not mind the business of your State and Governor? Or you think we are talking of the crony capitalism scam your shamelessly corrupt messiah GEJ devised and packaged as "power privatisation"?

The darkness is even more pervasive these days with not an iota of improvement to the power woes crippling Nigeria. You are not, as a fan of the master scammer called GEJ, fit to criticise Fashola's effort which always deliver tangible results and an improvement in the lives of Lagosians while your messiah is a specialist in failure and brazen looting. I only blame those who have time to entertain your shamelessness with their serious response.

Without raising a two-third majority vote, PDP anger is a storm in a tea cup. PDP do not have the votes.

Also Tambuwal will be presiding over any proceedings that will try to replace him. Also he is free to re-contest from his new party.

Failure is looking PDP in the face!

The main point many do not even get is obvious to pragmatic political analysts. How many debilitating and crushing battles can the PDP afford to fight before a general election? All these 'last minute' developments, leaving the PDP no time to recover, are a coincidence? I dey laff. PDP has done its own gra gra. Time to see what others can do. Shebi GEJ emerged "consensus candidate"? let us see if many in the PDP accept this fully, or are only sharpening knives to strike blows against the PDP, in the next few weeks.

Do Nigerians think this is the only major defection or crisis the PDP will face before the elections? TANDroids really disappoint me. There is always a laughable lack of intelligence typifying anything/anyone associated with GEJ. The defection of Tambuwal is now the only issue the PDP must focus on? Let us continue to enjoy the show.

Indeed. What a loquaciously putrid chap. Who does he think he is fooling with this "I am a man of the people" crap? GEJ has so played-out that angle to the extent many Nigerians now realise that the politicians too keen to show he is like the average man is likely the one who hates ordinary Nigerians the most and will only work for the "more of the same" political system enriching an elite class at the expense of the majority. This is what GEJ has done and Maku is only wasting his time embracing stale tactics.

Politics / Re: PDP Must Be Worried Over Tambuwal's Defection- Former Senator by Gbawe: 9:49am On Oct 30
TANDroids run on feudal petrol and ethnocentric diesel hence the reason they can never comprehend that the defection of Tambuwal is a big loss for the PDP as I told them it would be for many strategic reasons. This development resonates loudly home and abroad and sends out messages the ruling Party is weak, disunited and uncoordinated. The PDP hosts many,many powerful 'enemies within' who are seriously disgruntled with the dictatorial way a ruling cabal has broken promises, ruined erstwhile gentlemen's arrangement that had served the Party well, heightened treachery and disloyalty, disenfranchised others, promoted infighting and monopolised power completely. Many are waiting for the right time to stab their own Party in the back and weaken it fatally, leaving the ruling Party no time to recover from it's 'wound', before the general election.

Beyond the noise and the current feudalistic politics many of the PDP fans have mired themselves in, it is a big blow for any Party worldwide to lose its number 4 citizen (after the President, VP and Senate President) to an opposition Party not even two years old and predicted to not last a year by the ruling Party. Putting aside sentiments, Tambuwal's defection show how weak, dishevelled, discombobulated and fractured the ruling Party really is. It is now obvious to the world that most PDP members are not tied to the Party by ideological belief but by an abiding interest in their own stomach infrastructure. This is perhaps permissible for a Party seeking power but not for a ruling Party with 16 years of unchallenged monopoly of the Nigerian centre behind it. The PDP , if it were an effective political entity, should ideally be popular and able to retain the loyalty and patronage of its influential members given how long the Party has controlled Nigeria at the centre . It beats me how some Nigerians fail to get this very important point.

So far, non of the predictions of the PDP for the APC has come to pass. If anything, the APC continues to wax stronger making the PDP to appear a terminally ill entity now completely reliant on inducing and coercing support/endorsement. Some of us say things here that most Nigerians do not have the maturity or pragmatism to accept and I will deliver another prediction here. This is only the beginning, in my opinion, of what is a strategic plan to emasculate a PDP now completely hijacked by power-drunk and sit-tight elements. Momentum will slip away from the PDP while the APC will gain more traction, acceptability and wide backing locally and internationally.

Aregbesola is the quintessential Yoruba 'omoluabi'. His love for his people , and desire to secure progress for them, is not in doubt. Certainly a Governor with big ideas who needs more funds yet is hampered by the unwieldy structure of Nigeria and the fake federal system granting an indolent centre so much cash and power when all Nigerians live in States and local governments.

Jonathan is going down whether you guys like it or not.

Thank you. I laugh when I see these desperate efforts at pathetic scaremongering obviously aimed at frightening the pivotal SW from voting Buhari. I will advise OP and his ilk to stop wasting their own time. The Yorubas, when election is free and fair, will not tolerate or indulge misrule. We only need to look at the decimation of the PDP in the SW in 2011, where even the daughter of former President OBJ could not win the ward outside her father's house, to know that the folks of the SW will always reject misrulers.

Jonathan is no longer the "boy with no shoes" or "fresh air". Nigerians have seen him in action over 5 years to know he is hideously corrupt,highly inept and a divisive misruler. He has no goodwill left in the SW because he has failed Nigeria monumentally and also encouraged his minions (Dokubo Asari et al) to wage an abusive ethnic war of attrition against the Yorubas. I can't speak for others but I know the Yorubas will not abide with GEJ to then give him 4 more years. OP and others should find better things to do with their time.

Bros, stop this weird mixture of Alingo, Azonto and skelewu dance you are displaying here. What happened is fairly obvious. A list is produced that should make Nigerians reflect soberly and honestly about our need to do more and concentrate on what matters . Yet one of your fellow cretins waded in shamelessly with tribalistic and prejudiced barbs against Northerners while simultaneously using blatant deception to deliberately downplay the representative strength of the Yorubas simply to derail revelation which does not favour his ethnocentric delusions of grandeur. You guys must always divisively introduce ethnicity into everything. You must always seek out what divides and polarise people to then focus on promoting such things.

It is your pal who counted 3 Yorubas as one and claimed a Yoruba woman is "middle belt", so he could come out with the deceptive conclusion that aligns with the chest-beating of you lot, that made me respond to this thread. Otherwise I am not really interested in topics like this because I know the reality which is that Nigerians, for their collective mouthing-off, are simply not as great or as superior to others as they imagine themselves to be.

Are you not describing you and your kinsmen with the above? Ask any Nairalander from any Nigerian ethnic group who they associate with chest-beating and supremacist drivel and I am sure you know what their answer will be. Stop deceiving yourself. Why don't you start a thread about "who are the braggarts of Nigeria" and see what the response of your fellow Nigerians will be? Yorubas don't care about these sort of list, which even identifies a serious problem and shows Nigerians as under-performing seriously, let alone be interested in using such to brag inanely. That is your forte which you are well-known for.

How many Yorubas have responded here to say we are 3 out of 4 and thus superior,"business kings" or god-anointed business masters ahead of other "lazy Nigerians" because of this list as you and your ilk have always done to the extent you are now associated with empty chest-beating routinely? Most Yorubas are secure in themselves and don't have anything to prove to anyone. I only joined this thread to give unto Ceasar what belongs to Ceaser after your brother in bigotry tried blatant abracadabra to uphold his bad belle for others. I actually think these lists show that Nigerians are merely all mouth same as the recent picture-expose on Nairaland showed you "mansion owners" and "CEOs"to be all mouth also.

Shut up and GTF out of here. I cannot be labelled what my posts (over 10,000.00 of them) show conclusively I am not. Just because the few posts you have here conclusively damn you as ethnocentric does not mean you should try and desperately drag others into your gutter of bigotry.

I make no apologies for that and will use facts to to correct attempts to denigrate Yoruba folks which is a favourite pastime for folks like you, Omexonomy and many others here.

The challenge is for you to back your assertion by showing any of my posts, since you have over 10,000 examples, where I put down other Nigerian ethnic groups and clearly insinuate they are inferior to mine. Do that or stop wasting my time because we all know those who are obsessed with empty supremacist rants on Nairaland which is never borne out by the reality lists like these, time and time again, reveal.

Nigerians (myself included) are risk-averse, and prefer safe cushy jobs with guaranteed money cheesy

This is completely true. It is down to our background which emphasises complete focus on academic excellence leading to prestige employment (doctor, lawyer, Engineer, Accountant et al) which offers guaranteed moderate wealth and stability but is predictable, 'safe' and risk-averse. Not many Nigerian parents would support a child who wants to be maverick, an entertainer or a businessman/businesswoman. I think attitude has to change because Africa would not be flooded with opportunity-seekers from outside our continent if we ourselves know how to identify and take advantage of opportunities within our border. While many Nigerians are obsessed with getting 5 masters degree and being a doctor/banker/engineer et al, the South African (Shoprite) is happy catering directly to niche needs by offering grocery services.

Other foreigners are happy to take up opportunities we neglect in our obsession with snaring white collar jobs. We need to begin thinking outside the box or run the risk of being glorified slaves in our own land because of our lack of focus which means we obsess over the wrong things instead of focusing on innovatively delivering Nigerian/African solutions for Nigerian/African problems.

UCHE PEDRO, BANKOLE CARDOSO, TUNDE KEHINDE & KUNMI OTITOJU MAKE FORBES 30 MOST PROMISING YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS IN AFRICA LIST
FEBRUARY 5, 2014 LEAVE A COMMENT


Forbes Africa ‘Tracker’ Mfonobong Nsehe released a list of 30 Most Promising Young Entrepreneurs In Africa 2014 and Uche Pedro of BellaNaija, Bankole Cardoso of EasyTaxi Nigeria, Tunde Kehinde of Jumia Nigeria and Kunmi Otitoju of Minku Design, made it to the list. Read what Forbes wrote about them.


Uche Pedro CEO of Bella Naija

Uche Pedro, Nigerian

Founder, BellaNaija

The 29 year-old Nigerian media entrepreneur is the founder of BellaNaija, a thriving new media company that develops online media content for African (primarily Nigerian) audiences. BellaNaija.com is Nigeria’s premier lifestyle, entertainment and fashion website, and garners an average of 10 million page views every month.


Bankole Cardoso of EasyTaxi

Bankole Cardoso, Nigerian

CEO, EasyTaxi Nigeria

Cardoso, 25, is the founder of the Nigerian operations of EasyTaxi, a taxi mobile App that was founded in Brazil in 2012 by German technology startup incubator, Rocket Internet GmBH. EasyTaxi serves to connect cab drivers and would-be passengers. Through the App, passengers can confirm their pickup point and then order a cab at the click of a button. EasyTaxi sends the passenger a confirmation of the name and phone number of your driver and gives passengers the option of tracking their driver and the vehicle in real-time. Before setting up EasyTaxi in Nigeria, Cardoso worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Carlyle Group in New York.


Tunde Kehinde, Nigerian

Co-founder, Jumia Nigeria

The 30 year-old Harvard MBA grad recently stepped down as co-founder of Jumia Nigeria, the country’s largest online retailer. Kehinde founded Kasuwa, a Nigerian online retailer in 2012. Within days of its founding, Kasuwa received seed funding from German online startup incubator and the company’s name was changed to Jumia. Kehinde resigned in January to start a logistics company.


Kunmi Otitoju, Nigerian

Founder, Minku Design

Kunmi, a 30 year-old Nigerian fashion entrepreneur is the founder of Minku Design, a company that makes leather bags for men and women by subtly blending Aso-oke fabric (a hand loomed cloth woven by Nigeria’s Yoruba people), into contemporary leather bag designs. Minku also makes Yoruba-themed leather purses and jewelry. All Minku Design’s products are hand-made at a workshop in Barcelona, Spain, but they are sold at high-end stores in Nigeria and on the company’s website.

Not that it matters though but just wanted to correct you. There are two yorubas there, one igbo and one middle belt
Not one

Thanks Alhaji. There are actually 3 Yorubas on the list. The guy you quoted is an anti-Yoruba bigot well known for his prejudiced utterances here, See as he rushed in to proclaim Otitotu as "middle belt" when she is Yoruba and is even famous for fusing the Yoruba 'aso oke' into her designs. It is obvious ethnicity matters to this guy above merit or anything else.

Naturally he could not stand that Yorubas were in the majority on the list so he had to do 'ojoro' to undercount them, claim a Yoruba as "middle belt" and then have a dig at Northerners while at it. So much innate prejudice and ethnocentric malice. I swear, most Nigerian youths are worthless in comparison to their peers worldwide. This is why Nigeria is going nowhere lately even with our large population that should give us immense manpower advantage.

You,ve always been a raving lunatic anyway so no surprise you are talking about some fire about to engulf you personally. The fact is that Aregbesola, like most Yoruba Moslems, has not shown anything to indicates he discriminates against any religion. This has always been so. Why is it today and now that divisive elements and anarchists like you, 'coincidentally' ardent supporters of GEJ and mindless haters of the APC, are beginning to insist otherwise?

Who have you lot not tagged Islamist, whether Fashola or Tinubu, simply because they are moslems when religion was an issue that was never a big deal in the SW? Is it not obvious to honest folks that GEJ and the PDP have deliberately decided to practise politics of enmity, ethnic/religious intolerance and divisiveness instead of directly tackling Boko Haram, corruption and the many grave issues troubling Nigeria?

@Topic.

The irony of Nigerian today, indicating a dangerous level of malevolent bigotry Nigerians currently host for each other, is that many condemning Aregbesola here (probably about 80% of respondents to this thread) have zilch to do with Osun or even the SW. Yet they intolerantly wish to tell Osun folks what they must accept or rise up against.

I know some people will always be jealous of the "religiously tolerant" tag attached to the Yorubas. They would love, by hook or by crook, to associate the SW with religious extremism even when this is entirely imagined and fabricated. This is why they never mind their business and are now shedding crocodile tears over Osun when they are the same posters always mocking the State and Yoruba folks. If Osun folks have no problem with this then what concerns the man from Anambra, Edo or Benue State with this development? If the youths are the future then it is no wonder the old boys have no intention of handing Nigeria into the hands of the Nigerian youth who have not shown any capacity or maturity for leadership.

Would there have been any protest over this holiday, especially from folks who do not live in Osun and have nothing to do with the state like the first few respondents to this thread , in the days of Yar Adua and Obasanjo?

Every single damn thing is now viewed by many Nigerians through ethnic and religious goggles. Yorubas say what the eyes is looking for it will find. Let some continue promoting hate, enmity and intolerance. We understand this was the case before the civil war. When we have another civil strife then all the hate-mongers should remember the part they played with their intolerant, extremely dangerous and bigoted drivel.

Thesame man that says Buhari shouldn't contest is the man you say is a die hard supporter You are a shameless lair.

Don't mind the rank ignoramus and hardened liar. Telling lies to fit the scenario is in the DNA of people like him. Instead of them to face the topic, they must drag the APC into it by force. By the way, it is on record Junaid muhammed has said the APC is no different to the PDP. He has even gone as far as to call the APC "fascist".Muhammed is just bitter and angry with everything and everyone.

For the information of the ignorant fool you quoted and other clannish dumbos like him, Junaid Muhammed was the chairman of the People's Salvation Party (PSP) which was one of the Political Parties de-registered by INEC. Some folks should learn to face their battles and their direct tormentors without dragging innocent parties into issues.

APC mentality if you ask me, how can this set of people rule this country with this kind of ideology. Your hating someone because he bought an estate with his hard earned money.....
Ooooooo gush this is hight of stupidity
I'm out here

Stop this show of ignorance and mindless enmity against others. Junaid Mohammed is not a member of the APC. In fact, he is very critical of the Party. Face the topic and leave APC out of your vengeful tirade . What will your sort not blame the APC for? Be objective for once in your life .
