I love my University of Lagos, however, Covenant University is also a good school. A school does not have to be federal or decades old to qualify as a good school.

The church people have come again. Adeboye has nothing to do with this. Zika has been around for a long time.

yahrant140:This is an example of what Hillary calls "a vast right-wing conspiracy theory"
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Hillary Clinton Declared Victory In Iowa Caucus by gokuu(m): 8:06am On Feb 03|
twize:Anyone can run for president. Coming from a party with presidential history doesn't preclude you from running. I smell a whiff of sexism in your comments, you probably wanted to say she shouldn't be president because she's a woman but you didn't want to seem too retro, so you found another false line of attack.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Hillary Clinton Declared Victory In Iowa Caucus by gokuu(m): 11:35pm On Feb 02|
uniklinkum:Conduct of foreign policy is usually an executive thing. There was no bill regarding lifting of sanctions that went through congress. Republicans would have blocked it. You seem to think there's a consensus in America. There isn't one. Obama won huge victories in 2008 yet republicans blocked everything they could block. Sanders "political revolution" where he has everyone falling in line with his agenda is a pipe dream.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Hillary Clinton Declared Victory In Iowa Caucus by gokuu(m): 11:16pm On Feb 02|
CFCman:Not necessarily. Sanders will be viable in states like Rhode Island, Delaware, Maine, Vermont and a host of others. They just won't be enough.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Hillary Clinton Declared Victory In Iowa Caucus by gokuu(m): 11:12pm On Feb 02|
uniklinkum:Sanders is selling the impossible. Republicans control the house by more than 50 seats. Congressional districts are so gerrymandered that it's almost impossible for democrats to win control anytime soon. The senate is also republican, even if democrats reclaim some liberal senate seats, they won't have the 60 votes needed to get anything done in the US senate. The last time democrats had 60 senate seats was when Obamacare was passed and even that was contentious. Most of those senators have been wiped out as well.
Sanders is not a brave truth-teller. Hillary can deliver in reality.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Hillary Clinton Declared Victory In Iowa Caucus by gokuu(m): 11:05pm On Feb 02|
Missy89:Absolutely, Hillary remains the top choice. Sanders could not even deliver a victory in a state that is so strongly tailored to his strengths. Iowa democrats are 91% white, 43% identify as pure socialists (not just liberals) and the small size of the state allowed him campaign with ease in the urban centres. These stats should look great on paper for a lefty like Sanders, yet he lost it. He will likely win extremely white-NH but as the race goes down south, Hillary will deliver the KO punch.

cabaliciouscabal:I think more than 80% of Nigerians are illiterate.
The ipob (I refuse to capitalise) are just a bunch of dumb looneys. It's surprising that people who pride themselves in trade would suddenly want to reduce the population they serve.
|Politics / Re: Obiano Reacts To Pro-Biafra Protest In Onitsha - Vanguard by gokuu(m): 10:48pm On Dec 02, 2015|
This biafra idea is really outrageous and out-of-date. What's fun in being a broke and landlocked nation surrounded by the Nigeria?
The river Niger is the size of my waist and cannot possibly serve as a shipping route (that's if it's not dammed in the delta).
The crazy ipob and massob are just a bunch of looneys with no plan or blueprint whatsoever. The startling thing is that they actually have a few followers. #talkaboutilliteracy

iukpe:So? What's your business? Does the purported artificiality violate any of your fundamental human rights? Reasonably, I do not think so.
On a lighter note: Congratulations to the students.
|Crime / Re: Photos From Another Traffic Robbery In Lagos by gokuu(m): 11:05pm On Nov 02, 2015|
simplycarro:You sound like a sexist douche. Do you have any set of facts to back up your unfounded claims of women being more susceptible to robbery? Do you even have a fickle on how many robberies happen in the state?
I think you should stick to condemning the robberies and offering your thoughts on solutions rather than dictating when women get on and off the road.
|Career / Re: KPMG: My Temp Experience by gokuu(m): 6:28pm On Oct 22, 2015|
Come on, it's just KPMG. Here in UNILAG we're doing Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch internships in London and New York. Anyway, coming from the coal hinterlands, I must say KPMG might seem quite a (in Donald Trump's voice) HUGE change.

This is not government business. I think we need more maternal care accompanied by liberal abortion laws. Couples should be able to plan their families instead of having disasters like this that grows the population with reckless abandon.
|Family / Re: My Husband Insists I Dish Food For Him by gokuu(m): 12:10am On Sep 03, 2015|
I can't even believe we are still discussing this in the 21st century. He should even be grateful that you woke early to make something in the first place. The thing is, while I am a 21st century liberal, most Nigerian men are extreme conservatives with obnoxious ideas of a woman's role. I think some women also encourage such behavior. You need to stand up for your dignity, If he is truly hungry he will eat.
As for those saying it is grounds for "eating outside," a man that will cheat will cheat.

|Politics / Re: Free Meals, Allowance For Jobless Youths, N5,000 For Poor Families-Buhari Offers by gokuu(m): 9:20am On Jan 06, 2015|
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.
|Politics / Re: Free Meals, Allowance For Jobless Youths, N5,000 For Poor Families-Buhari Offers by gokuu(m): 3:13am On Jan 06, 2015|
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.
|Politics / Re: Free Meals, Allowance For Jobless Youths, N5,000 For Poor Families-Buhari Offers by gokuu(m): 2:33am On Jan 06, 2015|
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.

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?

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.
