|Religion / Re: 10 Women A Christian Man Should Avoid When Considering Marriage by gokuu(m): 9:23pm On May 31|
Is it just me or is this post from 1815? When men are not are not very successful, it's so easy to jump to the Bible and dredge up a lot. Well, being the flaming Liberal I am, I beg to disagree on all these out-of-touch ideas!

MRLANNISTER:Where is the money? The fact that the country has reserves does not mean that it does not have any debts? In fact, the presence of those reserves is what is keeping the poor credit rating of the country relatively stable, and also keeping the already high interests on our debt relatively stable. Once we start throwing it around on transfer payments with no investment in the productive capacity a disastrous chain of activity will follow and the debt will grow at an increasing rate. While i believe in the multiplier effect, one built solely on consumption of primarily imported goods will only exacerbate capital flight and send the already weak currency to the dogs.
As for employment service providers, we couldn't even manage a subsidy program on a tangible product like petroleum with few actors, How can we now manage a welfare program that the majority of 200 million will be involved in? Not to talk of the corruption that will unfold.
This proposal is a BAD DEAL for the country, especially the struggling middle class.

Who is going to administer such a massive program?
Where will the budget for it come from? The national debt is still growing at high rate.
How will the income eligibility be determined?
How will an applicant's income level be verified?
What is to say that 100 million people will not apply and qualify?
Is there going to be an age restriction?
Will there be work/national service requirement?
What will be the effect on inflation?
Where is the infrastructure to handle it?
A program like will take inflation to historic levels and trash the already weak currency we are managing. Those who have worked and saved up will lose. It's going to be a huge and unfair redistribution of wealth. I do not support tacitly robbing Peter to pay Paul. This is all aside the brand new corruption milky way it will create for talented fraudsters and corrupt officials. Any sound economist should be disappointed by this idea, it does not solve any real problem and is fundamentally flawed.

lastpage:He cannot stabilize any crude oil price. Jimmy Carter couldn't stabilize crude oil prices even when the success of his re-election campaign depended on it. What leverage does GMB have on the other suppliers of petroleum resources? None.

I'm leaning Buhari but I'm just not ready to be a socialist. These ''free-free-dash-dash'' ideas is a huge mistake and it's wrong for Nigeria. The last thing we need is to begin to encourage a welfare state and the inefficiencies that come with it. It is just highly unsustainable and will be too tough to gut. GMB should be talking more of how to grow the private sector and address infastructure because that's where the real jobs come from.
|Politics / Re: 2015: Nigerian Senators & Reps. Members With 3rd, 4th, 5th Term Tickets by gokuu(m): 9:55am On Dec 31, 2014|
There's no problem with serving more than two terms in the Senate or House. The constitution clearly allows it. It's even better to keep a senator that has substantial seniority to have your state's voice heard. A first-term senator will spend the better half of the term learning the basic rules and procedures and will not be taken seriously even if he has been governor or whatever in his state before that.

Donjazzy12:finally, i struck a nerve. you've run out of vitriolic ideas. take a rain check and reflect on some of your narrow-minded extreme views. as a social LIBERAL who appreciates diversity, i'll do my best to spread the message of accommodation.

caseless: Allah, i go kill am. He wld find more peace dumping religion, than goin into 'homosexuality'. I'm too homophobic 2 co-exist with gays.strong words! you're not just homophobic, you're an extremist. at this point, there's no difference between you and boko haram members.

Klinee: That funmi must be gay too! They would have arrest them and kill them now. Why do they allow those evil to escape now. They suppose to burn them alive. Welldone to NTA but they would have arrest the two gays and kill them.if your son or daughter comes out to you that he or she is gay, would you also burn him or her alive?

Given the kind of sexually charged music videos on tv these days, i wonder why there's so much fuss about a harmless interview. the things homophobia can do.

50calibre:sex is natural. the concept of adultery and fornication is a subjective one. it has to do with two people making a unique commitment to one another, so they go with what works for them. you can't just toss it around as natural or unnatural.
|TV/Movies / Re: Funmi Iyanda - NTA Shut-down My Show For Interviewing A Gay Man by gokuu(m): 2:49am On Oct 31, 2013|
50calibre:now, thats the point. As Humans, we can only assume people are happy from our observations. no one can really know if the other person is happy. so it really has nothing to do with intelligence as you have insinuated. the fact that we can't accept 100% that people are happy dosen't make them sad or sick people.

kilode95:since apple products are so disgusting, can you give us the name of your worldwide brand that's so much better than apple? sour grapes! you don't have to trash other peoples success when you can't even make a cardboard.

50calibre:yes! Decades ago, Africans were also slaves. does that make it right?

50calibre:if you had bothered to look closely, i did not state that the under aged party would be consenting or not. if you had bothered to take an elective in law while in school, you would have understood the concept of duress and undue influence which explains the meaning of a 'weaker party'. That being said, pedophilia refers to intimacy between an ADULT and a MINOR. homosexualism is between TWO CONSENTING ADULTS. if you still dont get it, take a detour.
|TV/Movies / Re: Funmi Iyanda - NTA Shut-down My Show For Interviewing A Gay Man by gokuu(m): 2:04am On Oct 31, 2013|
50calibre:whao! you just hit a new low. if gays are sick, is chris hughes, one of the founders of facebook also sick? is Tim cook, the CEO of Apple also sick? is U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin also sick? if these people are sick, then you that pride yourself on how healthy you are should bow in shame.

read this BBC article online about pakistan, one of the most conservative countries in the world
|TV/Movies / Re: Funmi Iyanda - NTA Shut-down My Show For Interviewing A Gay Man by gokuu(m): 1:51am On Oct 31, 2013|
50calibre:your analogy is heavily flawed. Homosexualism involves TWO CONSENTING ADULTS while pedophilia involves a STRONGER PARTY AND A WEAKER UNDER-AGED party. There's a clear difference!
corruption is also condemned by the majority of Nigerians, why do Nigerians still sing the praises of corrupt people? if you have so much fate in your heterosexuality, why do you bother about an civil interview in tv? or are u still on the fence about your sexuality?
gay men and women are plenty in Nigeria. many of them are successful everyday people, many are also married to the opposite sex but take some time out to explore their passion.
in essence, its better for everyone to get educated on the issue rather than hurling insults that wont change anything.

|Education / UNILAG Dissociates Self From Unscientific Publication by gokuu(m): 3:06pm On Sep 21, 2013|
Our attention has been drawn to a publication containing research purportedly written by one of the Part Time Postgraduate Diploma Students in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Lagos - Stanley Amalaha, titled “Science of Gay Marriage” in THISDAY Newspapers of 5th September, 2013 and on several blogs on the Internet.
The University of Lagos writes to dissociate itself in its entirety from the actions, publications and research of this individual. We further state, for the avoidance of doubt, that his publication has nothing to do with his programme and has no relationship to his studentship of the University. Indeed our postgraduate diploma students ordinarily only take conversion courses to improve their capability for the chosen specialization and do not undertake research. The case of the writer who has a background in Education (Chemistry) is not different.
Although the University is a market place of different views and ideas, its platform should not be used for the propagation of ill-conceived, unsubstantiated and ill-digested opinions that have no basis in rigorous empirical research. The University of Lagos, which stands for excellence in teaching and research, cannot and should not be associated with such puerile and pseudo-scientific postulations.
The University reaffirms its mission, which is to be a top-class institution for the pursuit of excellence in knowledge through learning and research as well as in character and service to humanity.

i live in a country where ID cards are celebrated. Whao! Another milestone achievement. I might also jump up and shout out loud if someone were to tell me how this 'wonderful innovation' would solve Nigeria's structural problems.
|Science/Technology / Re: Nigerian Uses Magnets To Prove Homosexuality Is Wrong by gokuu(m): 1:37am On Sep 17, 2013|
i didn't see this much earlier. This is a disaster an if Nigeria was a serious country, the University should be in damage-control mode now. To think he was given attention by public office holders is even more sickening.
|Politics / Re: IBB Inaugurates N610M Presidential Villa In Sokoto by gokuu(m): 1:24am On Sep 17, 2013|
and yet there's no money to sort out the education crisis. BTW, haven't the sahara engulfed the whole of sokoto already?
|Science/Technology / Re: Nigerian Uses Magnets To Prove Homosexuality Is Wrong by gokuu(m): 1:14am On Sep 17, 2013|
this is not just new, i saw his write-up at one of the notice boards in the first quarter and thought it was just one of those jokes people write in their spare time. I am really very embarassed it got to huffingtonpost. And for a 'Dr' to support such nonsense magnetic experiment is even more shocking. It just goes to show the level of homopphobia in Nigeria and that Ultra-conservatives will say anything to win.
|Education / Re: UNILAG Expels Protesting Students by gokuu(m): 6:03pm On Jun 14, 2013|
This is a very big lie. Nobody was expelled.
The University management was even glad that the students even stood up because it was also affecting them and their kids. ALL PRICES HAVE BEEN BROUGHT DOWN BY THE DSA. So stop spreading false rumour....BTW, what is fnn?
