Please what is "flatino"?
It's amazing how some people are calling on the Nigerian government to do something, when they have all but sworn allegiance to the nnamdi charade.

They look broke.
Personally, I don't like poor people. Just a preference.
|Family / Re: Man Dumps His 4 Kids At Agege LGA With Note 'I Can't Feed Them Cos Of Hardship' by gokuu(m): 12:08am On Aug 11|
Haha...totally fact-free write up!
First, the Chinese simply eased their one-child policy to allow for only two children (and there are conditions to even qualify)
Second, Spain is trying to boost a declining population. This is not the situation Nigeria finds herself; In fact, we are on the other side of this. If you have any thoughtfulness, you will know that countries make policy based on their won needs and peculiarities - not that of other countries.
Can you order a Rolls Royce just because Dangote has one? You will only be killing yourself!
Third, Japan is experiencing an ageing population. This is not Nigeria's situation.
P.S.: Try to put data in context before you go on babbling them out into the world. A thorough check may reveal a thing or two.

You are truly deplorable.
Someone is talking about GDP and taxes and you are talking about looting of funds.
We all agree that government has not lived up to expectations, but even if there was no corruption; such a robust social welfare system would be impossible to create without a burgeoning economy where both the formal and informal sectors are paying high taxes.
At the moment, the informal sector - which constitutes more than 70% of the economy - pay near zero taxes. The GDP per capita in Nigeria is also nothing to write home about!
Simply put, we are not in any position to maintain a "government-are-the-parents" system.
If you do not have money for kids, use birth control - its cheap.
|Family / Re: Man Dumps His 4 Kids At Agege LGA With Note 'I Can't Feed Them Cos Of Hardship' by gokuu(m): 11:51pm On Aug 10|
Exactly. Very smart. Especially since we all know that the Nigerian system is, right now, incapable of caring for these kids.
People must also realize that higher taxes are required to create such a strong social safety net.
|Family / Re: Man Dumps His 4 Kids At Agege LGA With Note 'I Can't Feed Them Cos Of Hardship' by gokuu(m): 11:46pm On Aug 10|
You are indeed very ignorant.
You talk about social security, but fail to mention that huge taxes are required for this. How many Nigerians are in the tax pool? VERY FEW!
It is really dumb of you to talk about tax rebates because you at least have to have paid taxes before you get a rebate. Do you honestly think the man in question has ever paid any taxes?
Get a grip of yourself and stop expecting handouts, unless you are advocating for minimum tax rates of 40% or more.
|Family / Re: Man Dumps His 4 Kids At Agege LGA With Note 'I Can't Feed Them Cos Of Hardship' by gokuu(m): 11:35pm On Aug 10|
You are very wrong.
The social welfare programmes is not an excuse to go on a breeding rampage.
BTW, welfare covers only little. Despite welfare, lots of children in the UK and US still live in poverty.
If you like, go on and have plenty children and be waiting for government, na you go tire. Nonsense!

I don't understand how the Bible, a religious material, is relevant in a Human Rights discussion.
Nigeria is not a Theocracy! The question is not one about "sin", but about "crime"?
If we governed based on what the Bible deems "sin", then I think Nigeria should be surrounded by thick metal bars cos we would all be imprisoned.

Driving is not supposed to be a fancy job where egos are massaged, taking poo is part of the job description.

These ride-sharing companies must do better to properly vet their drivers. And we thought Uber had unpleasant drivers, turns out Taxify's drivers are looking worse.

|Politics / Re: We Must Stop Producing More Babies And Create More Jobs says Senator Ben Bruce by gokuu(m): 3:05pm On Aug 06|
From your thinking, maybe the corruption is also just a permanent part of the Nigerian system. After all, "same people..different structures"
|Politics / Re: We Must Stop Producing More Babies And Create More Jobs says Senator Ben Bruce by gokuu(m): 3:01pm On Aug 06|
There is leadership failure, however, that is an illegitimate problem. The fact that we have a leadership crisis in Nigeria does not mean that we will be spared of the LEGITIMATE challenges that confront a nation like population size. A problem half-solved is always better.
|Politics / Re: We Must Stop Producing More Babies And Create More Jobs says Senator Ben Bruce by gokuu(m): 2:56pm On Aug 06|
Apparently, hunger has not controlled it.
The reason is logic; the vast majority of people causing the population explosion are not logical people.
To them, every problem is a nail and the only hammer is MORE BABIES with the hope that maybe one may make it. Its a deranged proposition.

repogirl:Funny thing is, people like this also want the king of good infrastructure in China and other developed countries. If a politician said we cannot enjoy those things because "this in Nigeria"...this guy will be up-in-arms.
|Politics / Re: We Must Stop Producing More Babies And Create More Jobs says Senator Ben Bruce by gokuu(m): 2:48pm On Aug 06|
We should have a policy that reduces the birthrate in this country. We are headed for a disaster if we do not do something now, it's crazy - especially amongst lower income people.
|Politics / Re: We Must Stop Producing More Babies And Create More Jobs says Senator Ben Bruce by gokuu(m): 2:44pm On Aug 06|
Exactly, most beggars have boatloads of children that they cannot take care of.
It is a serious problem because it perpetuates the vicious cycle of poverty.
Children get born into poverty.
Fail to get good education as a result of poverty.
Grow up to become a nuisance.
Have kids in poverty.
...and the Vicious Cycle of Poverty is rejuvenated.

|Politics / State Department Approves U.S. Sale Of Attack Planes To Nigeria by gokuu(m): 9:29pm On Aug 03|
The State Department has approved a possible sale to Nigeria of 12 high-tech attack planes and related equipment worth nearly $600 million, the Pentagon said Thursday.
"These aircraft will support Nigerian military operations against terrorist organizations Boko Haram and [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] West Africa, and Nigerian efforts to counter illicit trafficking in Nigeria and the Gulf of Guinea," the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a notice published Thursday. "Nigeria is an important partner in the U.S. national security goal to defeat ISIS, including its branches in Africa, and this sale is part of the U.S. commitment to help Nigeria and the Lake Chad Basin countries in that fight."
The Trump administration's approval of the sale, which was rumored months ago, comes after the Obama administration put a hold on it amid accusations that Nigeria's air force was bombing civilians.
The sale entails a dozen A-29 Super Tucano aircraft, according to the notice. The Super Tucano, made by contractor Sierra Nevada Corp., is a light attack plane designed for counter-insurgency, close air support and aerial reconnaissance missions.
The estimated value of the sale is $593 million and includes associated training, spare parts, aviation and ground support equipment, as well as a hangar, facilities and infrastructure required to support the program.
Representatives from the U.S. government and the contractor will need to go to Nigeria for training and logistical help. The training will include special instructions on the laws of armed conflict, human rights and air-to-ground integration to minimize civilian harm, the notice added.
"The proposed sale, and associated training and engagement, is one piece of broader U.S. security cooperation to help professionalize, modernize and build the capacity of Nigeria's armed forces and strengthen the U.S. security relationship with Africa's largest democracy," the notice said. "Nigeria will have no difficulty absorbing these aircraft into its armed forces."
Congress was notified Wednesday and has 30 days from then to block the sale if it so chooses.
Former President Obama had halted the sale after a Nigerian fighter jet repeatedly bombed a camp of civilians who fled Boko Haram, killing more than 230.
But President Trump indicated shortly after he took office that he supported the sale.
In a February call with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, Trump "expressed support for the sale of aircraft from the United States to support Nigeria's fight against Boko Haram," according to a White House summary of the talk.

under experience, it's of three years or less.
The bank is looking for superb candidates that have NO MORE THAN THREE YEARS of work experience. This means someone with zero work experience is welcome to apply.
The bank wants relatively fresh and young people who are superb at the same time.

Trembling? No one is even flinching.
Unfortunately, miscreants and troublemakers have always a part of society.
Again, no one cares for the SE charlatans and their propaganda. The moment they pose a remotely significant threat to national security, they will be crushed.
|Politics / Re: Anambra Election Will Hold If Nigeria Is Restructured Before October 1 - Kanu by gokuu(m): 11:11pm On Jul 24|
Whatever longitude and latitude, Buhari is president and overwhelming won the last election.
Keep dreaming for kanu the mumu!
