You are a coward, an empty chest-beater and big pu**y. Is that "silly" enough for you? Now do your worst.

Not true. The cost od a modern modular rail network, for example, is very high. This is why even Lagos has not completed irs own model. The FG must assist states more in terms of critical infrastructure and one of the ways to do this would be to reform bloated federal governance so that more is made available dor States to spend on the socio-economic drvelopment of Nigeria.

Enough of you cretins derailing the thread with your small-minded antics. Do you have anything sensible at all to say about the topic? As for your empty warning, I dare you to do your worst.
|Politics / Re: Lagos IGR Now 75% Of State Budget...And IGR of each State by Gbawe: 3:55pm On Nov 25|
Try the Lagos State official website. It is virtually the most comprehensive and informative in Nigeria with detailed and up to date information about the income and expenditure of the State.

Precisely. Frankly, this is what majority of Nigerians claim they want to see. I.e Nigerian States moving towards the ability to be financially independent and self-sustaining. The more a State nears this holy grail the more develppment partners flood in and assistance multiply

Quite difficult to do. I would suggest you don't let it get to you and perhaps even turn it around on the clowns now and then when you have the time. We all know what has driven the bitter and negative contribution of some posters here. This is why I always tease the bigots here when I have the time or inclination. I realise that these prejudiced hack get even more upset as their negative lies and obvious bad belle are discredited.
Gone are the days when I used to take the jokers seriously. Constructive criticism is okay but such should make sense and be directly pertinent. This development is laudable as it means Lagos is on course to becoming virtually independent and self-financing. This would be a dream fiscal scenario for any Nigerian State because federal allocation can effectively be utilised for capital projects since the State can finance itself.

My bro, I respectfully urge you to stay out of my tete-a-tete with some posters here. You cannot know Niaraland from one thread or even from being on this forum for a year. There is no one I insult here who does not deserve it by virtue of the fact that they insulted me without provocation, at one stage or the other, while I tried to discuss productively. I used to ignore them for a long time till I realised some of them take the graciousness of others for weakness. The fool Tomakint, for example, ran around NL hurling insult at any poster who criticised GEJ. His favourite was to call every critic of GEJ old as if he is himself a teenager.
Imagine my shock when the picture-expose phase on Nairaland showed him up to be an old, ugly and scruffy hobo !!! Why should I then not pay the lying hypocrite back in his own coin when it is cretins like him destroying this forum simply because they cannot stand factual criticism of their failed messiah? As for the others, they are prejudiced and ethnocentric clowns well-known on this forum for their sectional myopia against other ethnic groups especially Yorubas, Hausas and Fulanis . I cannot stand those sort and I have no interest in being polite to them same as a black man has no kind words for a racist or white supremacist. I am a highly refined and well-mannered person and as such will never insult you and other productively polite posters but I make no apologies for insulting vile posters and uncouth agberos who feel they have a monopoly of hurling vitriol at others
|Politics / Re: Lagos IGR Now 75% Of State Budget...And IGR of each State by Gbawe: 2:38pm On Nov 25|
Bro, you think I am a liar like you, Tomakint and other shameless Nigerians always using 'football age' that sees grown men of 35 pretending to be 16 on a football pitch and calling young European boys of 18 their "egbon" like the unkept old man Tomakint is doing here shamelessly?
As this is a politics forum, I will use an example of Dimeji Bankole (he is 44) to make a point since he is one of Nigeria's most prominent young Politicians haven been a former speaker HOR.
I urge the entire forum to now pray with me.
If Dimeji Bankole is my egbon (older brother) age-wise then may God continue to bless and accord me success as has been the case till now. Misfortune will then be your lot from now and henceforth if the above is true and the same misfortune should befall me if it is a lie and I am indeed as old as Dimeji Bankole let alone be considered an old man. I say a big Amen to this prayer and Nairalanders are welcomed to help me say amen to this prayer too to make it more potent.
When the misfortune and bad luck begin to come your way then you will know why
At least we have seen pictures of Tomakint to know 100% he is an ugly, poverty-stricken, shabbily-dressed and urchin-like 'arugbo'.

Slowly,slowly I am drawing out the bigot in you. Let me guess. Igbos pay 99.9% of the taxes collected in Lagos State? I have already disgraced your brother-in-deluded-braggadocio, i.e Kettykin, and he has disappeared . You better run along too . It is bigoted, divisive and empty noise-makers like you all other balanced and tolerant folks are tired of.

What a joke. A jobless hack like you pays tax? Whatever next? You own Mansions, property portfolios, private jets and 50 multinational businesses? Keep deluding your paranoid self claiming anyone wants you to leave Lagos. It is prejuidiced liars and ethnocentric braggarts like you and Kettykin folks resent not hard-working and gracious Igbos who are happy to live and let live. Mumu, abeg go and sit down somewhere.

Another angry bigot. What is your business with Lagos or does your anger stem from how I have shown your brother kettykin up for his lies and delusionally empty chest-beating? It hurts right ? I.e the truth, which is very far from the lies peddled by you shameless braggarts, being revealed to your disgrace and bellitlement? You prejudiced nonentities are so predictable.
We are talking of IGR and this ethnocentric hack is talking of "deportation". What next? You will tell us Fashola committed atrocities against you during the civil war? Spare us your bitter paranoia and face the topic if you can which is that Lagos is moving towards becoming independent and self-financing.

Why waste time trying to educated the old, haggard and senile illiterate? Remember they say a fool at 40 is a fool forever. What then is the bum-like Tomakint capable of learning at his present age of 65? Bro, this level is far above his head abeg. It is only a highly ignorant fool that will be comparing Akpabio with Fashola. That asinine comparison is how you can tell who the cretins are.

You are minding the deluded braggart? Thank god the Nairaland picture-expose thingy showed up all these "mansion owners" and "CEOs" for what they really are. The same way they make up delusional fantasies about themselves is how they ridiculously claim their kinsmen own the entire universe. Sadly for these fools, we are in an information age where knowledge is readily available for anyone interested in banishing ignorance.
|Politics / Re: Lagos IGR Now 75% Of State Budget...And IGR of each State by Gbawe: 10:59am On Nov 25|
Bro, the simple truth is that they have not been able to "replicate" anything anywhere because they work with chest-beating delusions of grandeur and wild lies alone. This is the conclusive reason why individuals who claim they have built good things elsewhere 'oddly' seem incapable of doing so at home. I don't get how some people have no shame at all. You will use outright lies and fallacies to proclaim you have done this and own that yet you can never reproduce such in your own traditional abode where it is most needed. Sadly for deluded fools, we live in an information age and it is very easy today to discredit liars and empty braggarts as I have done here with relative ease.

Bro, are you taking the deluded bigot and charlatan seriously? All his kind are able to do is pull out imaginary figures from their azz for the sake of nothing else other than proclaiming mythical superiority over others. They, with the wild and shameless lies they tell daily, are probably the most discredited members of this forum.
Compare his silly figures with that below and you will realise that some folks should not even be allowed to discuss in an environment where fact-based truth is germane to the issues under inspection. These are the characters who have given us a reputation as a dishonest Country full of people ready to tell wild and ridiculous lies always.
The 419 ethnocentric and chest-beating "we own and control everything" lies:
The fact-based and statistics-supported truth and reality:
Seven different sectors dominate economic activities in Lagos State, led by manufacturing which, interestingly, contributes 29.60 percent of the state’s GDP figures. Road transport follows closely contributing an average of 26.47 percent of economic activities in the state. Other sectors in order of dominance include building and construction (19.60 percent); wholesale and retail (8.39 percent); telecommunications (3.71 percent); financial institutions (3.51 percent); and real estate (2.01 percent). The seven sectors account for 93.39 percent of economic activities in the state.

Why are you ethnocentric charlatan such shamelessly dishonest and emptily chest-beating liars? Are you guys never ashamed to pull out imaginary figures from thin air that keeps getting discredited daily? We live in an information age and the entire world has now moved beyond your 2-by-2-container-shop-parading-as-a-business-empire lies and delusions. Pathetic lies and empty chest-beating is all your kind are associated with today.
No one is fooled any longer by your claims of 'mansion ownership' and "we run Lagos" bullcrap. The truth is now out there for all to access. Compare the figures below with your grossly fallacious data which is driven by an innately dishonest nature and inferiority complex. This is why you guys are predisposed to making wild claims that are symptomatic of the delusions of grandeur you routinely suffer from. Shameless bigot.

Precisely what I told the senile old fool previously. Silly 'agbayas' and charlatans like them should stop showing face on threads like this and leave discussions to sensible adults with a good grasp of pertinent issues. Perhaps if that begins to happen more then some of the intelligent posters who have left will come back and Nairaland will regain the 'form' that saw threads like this being a source of critically effective thinking, erudition and informative analysis instead of what obtains currently whereby cretinous lunatics have taken over the asylum.
The fact of the matter is that Lagos has emerged the only Nigerian State close to becoming self-financing entirely. It is the impressive IGR increase Lagos has gained under Fashola that now means Lagos would be the one of the biggest economies in Africa if an independent nation. Yet the FG, on the other hand, is now revealed, by falling oil prices, to be a hugely corrupt, badly exposed and unprepared failure. These near-illiterate simpletons think they can disparage the monumental achievements of Lagos, under Fashola and Tinubu, while simultaneously supporting the Jonathan-led ultra-gradualist FG that is corruption, ineptitude and indolence personified. Tragic comedy really the way some Nigerians are happy to persevere with mediocrity and sheer ineptitude while never willing to give credit where due or admit that others they love to hate are working admirably and commendably.

Dude, ignore the charlatan. Who here is unaware he is a closet bigot only interested in seeking negatives about SW States while failing to give credit where due when the monumental strides of Lagos, defiant of the Nigerian reality, is highlighted? The message here is clear and simple enough. Lagos, by far, leads the way in IGR and is on course to becoming Nigeria's only self-sustaining State.
If Nigeria were not a horribly divided nation, full of prejudiced folks and bigots, then we would all be looking at the achievements of Lagos as a template we must present to our respective State Governors. Why is it that the world has no problem voting Fashola one of the 100 most influential global thinkers while at home ethnocentric mischief-makers (like the poster you quote) concentrate their effort on finding negative points, whenever positives about Fashola or Lagos is stated, when such are non-existent?

I have made the same call too umpteenth times. Yet many Nigerians are too sentimental to the extent they are unable to focus on what matters. We must begin to plan for period like this more effectively. The sad reality is that most Nigerian States are now totally screwed if the falling oil prices continues and indeed low per barrel price of oil, below our budgeted benchmark, become the reality for the foreseeable future. This is not something we should play politics with. This is a time to ask serious questions and look critically at what leaders are doing.

Well-said bro. The above in bold is precisely what I stated also in my post before this one. Shebi Nigerians all had time to be arguing inanely before? Now that 'austerity' is officially here we will see what strength or focus a hungry people will have to be insulting those doing very well while same set of hypocrites had the time and zeal to be supporting and making excuses for a failed federal government led by the one of the most corrupt, most insensitively profligate and most incompetent leader in the world.
Soon, money to browse Nairaland will be a problem for the charlatans who have supported the worthless GEJ government that has gotten Nigeria to this awful scenario where we are almost totally unprepared economically for falling oil prices because of hideous corruption,anti-people economic policies, leadership deceit/lack of transparency, copious looting of Nigeria's oil income through the NNPC and slack policies of Government and the promotion/perpetuation of a monumentally bloated democracy leading to recurrent spending running at around 70% of annual budget when this figure is under 10% in many developed Countries.

I am very proud of the achievements of Lagos. It is times like this that the reality of who is leading well, and who is failing, becomes crystal-clear despite how Nigerians like to play politics of ethnicity and sectional bias. Let oil fall to $10 per barrel. When Nigerians begin to suffer terribly then they will hopefully learn a lesson or two about putting sentiments aside to vote out terrible leaders who maintain ten air-planes,at hideously monumental costs, in a poverty-ridden nation .

The 2014 "austerity"reality clearly revealing the hideous failings of GEJ and Okonjo Iweala to plan adequately/proactively and shield the economy form oil-based vulnerability. They promoted runaway corruption and failed totally to reign in ten-plane profligacy and bloated governance. Now, there are virtually no buffers in place at all for the Nigerian economy and people because of corruption, economic cluelessness, lack of focus and sheer ineptitude and unacceptable indolence. Now I suggest you shamelessly dishonest TANdroids get out of this thread and let intelligent folks discuss the immense stride forward Lagos has made, under the APC and Fashola, while all PDP States have meagre IGRs they have failed to develop appreciable over many years.

What nonsense is this baba arugbo talking? Is senility setting in already? I don't know why you TANdroids are all so routinely and shamelessly dishonest. Failure to diversify the economy, and move it away from a reliance on oil earnings, has been a constant criticism of the GEJ Government. Economic experts have always stated that the 419 'achievements' of GEJ is nothing more than dubious propaganda not seen or felt anywhere on the ground. Now the current tragic state of the Nigerian economy is proof of the total mismanagement of affairs by GEJ.
Next time kindly keep your old mouth shut instead of opening it to lie. Respect your age. GEJ has failed woefully to diversify the Nigerian economy and he has performed abjectly in relation to aiding the growth of the SME which is the lifeblood of most successful Nation's economy. When you want to lie, then try little lies first because there are too many posters here who are far more intelligent, more honest and better-read than you are.

To be honest, I am tired of the shenanigans of Seun and his partisan mods. After the elections, and especially after a GMB win, I am out of Nairaland for good as this forum is no longer what it used to be anyway. I gain nothing being a member of Nairaland today whereas I used to enjoy discussing with and learning from the likes of Katsumoto, Pukkah, Eguerilla, Kilode and many other intelligent and interesting posters who have simply left and have stayed away . There is no reason for any productive Nigerian to post here when the place has been taken over by cretins with the tacit support of those who moderate and run this forum. They do not even hide the backwardness they wish to entrench. It is the Nigerian way my brother. The more you look the less you see.

|Politics / Re: Atiku; I Won't Give Up Till I Become President by Gbawe: 2:22pm On Nov 24|
He can be as desperate as he wants. The reality is that ordinary Nigerian do not believe in Atiku. They never will especially considering what Nigeria has gone through in the 5 years under GEJ which reveals to even a child that we need an individual totally disinterested in and disconnected from the current Nigerian system of hideous greed that means eventual Aso rock occupants are usually pro-elite mercenaries interested in multi-billion business empires for themselves and their cronies rather than fighting for what will develop and elevate the masses.
People think the current popularity and desperate demonization of Buhari, by those who realise he will end 'business as usual" , is a coincidence. Big NO. Issues today are a convergence of the lessons Nigerians have learnt leading them to decide, by all means,to vote for for a man who has always shown he is on the side of the people.
In my opinion,Nigerians are not ready to tolerate another deceptive character who "had no shoes" or is only about flashing his PHD/bright ideas in their faces without the attendant history or personal character to deliver upon the numerous flowery promises. GEJ did this to now leave Nigerians a cynical people. Nigerians, whether we want to admit it or not, are now seriously attracted to Buhari's character as one of the few leaders ( alongside Balarabe Musa, Jakande,Tam David West et al) who have an abiding interest in the welfare of Nigerians and zero interest in garish materialism, private jets, mansions and Abuja multi-billion Naira property portfolio. Atiku can be desperate to be President but everything he is personally and everything Nigeria is today tells me it will not happen.
|Politics / Re: Atiku; I Won't Give Up Till I Become President by Gbawe: 1:54pm On Nov 24|
Atiku, ultimately, is not a terrible choice for Nigeria because he is a deliberate and willing candidate with his own ideas and conviction unlike accidental and 'anointed' Presidents like GEJ and Yar Adua respectively. Nonetheless, he cannot win the trust and votes of Nigeria for where we are today. Nigerians have gambled on "the boy with no shoes" and lost woefully. They will not take another gamble on a man who is filthy rich and an example of Government-aided wealth in favour of a few individuals which always inversely leads to poverty for the masses.
Atiku, for example, is the owner of the Mikano group which is the biggest importer of power generating sets in Nigeria. How can such a man take a decision that will cripple/bankrupt his business yet benefit many millions of Nigerians? Can we compare Atiku to Buhari who was in much greater positions than Atiku to make himself hideously wealthy yet shunned materialism to then leave leadership as one of the poorest former President/heads of State our nation has ever had? Buhari's landlord in Abuja testified to how Buhari chose to move out and 'downsize' rather than owe rent or call on anyone to help him pay his rent despite his considerable influence which means many will be happy to pay just to keep the general in his Abuja home. Even Babangida's maid is richer than Buhari while OBJ's "son" (Andy Ubah) could probably have dashed the General the 'peanut' N27 million to buy his APC declaration form !!!!
As citizens of a very corrupt nation, full of greedy politicians ready to destroy the future of millions for their own pocket, do we truly understand that Nigerians are now aware that perhaps the best leader our nation can gain today is an individual who is only interested in the development of ordinary Nigerians and not corruption-assisted business empires, several private jets, numerous mansions worldwide, fleets of luxury cars and garish opulence when most Nigerians cannot even afford a bicycle or a shed to sleep in?
Not many will vote for Atiku. He is another candidate who will appeal to the elite and exposed minority in the Nigerian electorate yet is dead on arrival to the average folks who are the majority by far and the real kingmakers. Jonathan won in 2011 because he was perceived to be on the side of the masses because he "wore no shoes" like the average Nigerian and suffered as they did. Nothing connects Atiku with the ordinary Nigerian and he stands as a symbol of the elitist greed of a filthy-rich few that has ensured the masses are denied what is due to them year in and year out. Atiku, in my opinion, can never get the support of the average Nigerian.
|Travel / Re: Shame Of A Nation!! Nigeria's Airports Amongst Worst Even In Africa. by Gbawe: 10:53am On Nov 24|
When we tell ill-expose TANdroids who have never left their villages, let alone set foot on a plane, that the 'airport achievement'of GEJ is a big ruse they will begin shouting like lunatics. Here we have conclusive proof. For those who travel frequently, they will know our airports deserve their woeful ranking in relation to others in Africa and the world. I was one of those who bitterly questioned why MMIA , of the over 30 international airports I have used, is the only one a non-refundable fee is collected from passenger for trolley usage. For god sake!!! That sort of blatantly unchecked greed and exploitation of passengers ruins the user experience for travellers - especially when coming from other airports where things work smoothly and passengers are assisted rather than harassed,robbed and exploited !!!
Three Nigerian airports, including our premier International airport, are amongst the worst ten in the entire Africa !!!! Shame on Nigeria and shame on the failed government that is 5 years old especially when 'airport reforms' were one of the touted "achievements" of this current administration !!!! This, without mincing words, is unacceptable failure. 5 years worth of failure actually. All those supporting GEJ are just enemies of Nigeria's progress and ethnocentric clowns because the man is clearly out of his depth and only capable of delivering failure everywhere.
