|Politics / Re: Nigeria At Risk Over Falling Oil Price : FG by hercules07: 11:50am On Oct 27|
It is not a conspiracy, that is the actual fact, I do not think the Saudis are doing it willingly, the US is behind it and the intention is to cripple Russia's economy and probably cause Social unrest in Russia.
|Politics / Re: Terrorism: FG Asks Court For Secret trial Of Ndume by hercules07: 12:04pm On Oct 22|
We should not accept secret trials, the judge should rule against this, the simple reason is because it sets a precedent, soon, all trials will be secret and the counsels will always quote the precedent set in Ndume's case, apparently Nigerians do not know the danger of this request, any case against the government will now be in secret, opposition members being charged to court will be in secret, take government to court on any charge and you are tried in secret, is that the democracy we want?
|Business / Re: FG To Spend N1 Trillion On Petrol Subsidy In 2015 by hercules07: 4:15pm On Oct 17|
What the heck are you saying, Total refines oil in Saudi why can they not refine in Nigeria, they started the project 4 years ago, if your government had their head screwed on tight, that refinery will be in Nigeria not Saudi Arabia, the roles will be reversed, they will refine in Nigeria and sell in Nigeria, they are playing the mother vessel game because the government allows them to, why dont they try that nonsense in Saudi and see how far they will get.
|Business / Re: FG To Spend N1 Trillion On Petrol Subsidy In 2015 by hercules07: 3:41pm On Oct 17|
Total dropped the cash to build a refinery for export, they are refining in Saudi Arabia, a stonethrow away, SADARA is building a petrochemical plant to use the products from the refinery, Total will sell the refined oil in Saudi Arabia if a market exists there, there is a huge market for refined products in Nigeria seeing as we import refined products, so, what stops the government from doing the same thing as the Saudi Arabian government? Total needs to earn, it will sell to the devil if he can pay on time, Nigeria can pay on time, why are we not doing this in our country, the number of people employed in that refinery is over 2 thousand, the added value is more than the $20bn used to build it.
|Business / Re: FG To Spend N1 Trillion On Petrol Subsidy In 2015 by hercules07: 3:03pm On Oct 17|
They are a major player in extraction not refining, they dropped the cash for the refinery in the Saudi Arabia, why do I care about Middle east gasoline in the wholesale market, I am talking about refining our crude in Nigeria by entering into partnerships with the same set of people who have done it in other places, but, our government will not do that because the subsidy scam is good for their politics, it is good for their pockets as well, instead of fighting to remove subsidies for 16 years, why not use those same 16 years to build refineries by going into partnerships with people like Total, according to our government, subsidy is $6bn, then sales of the refined oil in Nigeria should be north of $12bn in Nigeria only and excess can be shipped abroad, that should be good enough for any oil company, afterall, they are in the business to make money whether from Nigerians or anywhere else.
|Business / Re: FG To Spend N1 Trillion On Petrol Subsidy In 2015 by hercules07: 2:51pm On Oct 17|
Yeah right, as if your government wants to do what is right, the government profits from the scam, why can the government now work with the Totals of this world just like Saudi Arabia is doing, afterall, Aramco is a mostly owned by the Saudi government.
|Business / Re: FG To Spend N1 Trillion On Petrol Subsidy In 2015 by hercules07: 2:43pm On Oct 17|
Fuel subsidy is a big scam, 1 trillion Naira is about $6B, in the last 4 years we have spent almost $20B on subsidy, that is the cost of Total's largest refinery in Saudi Arabia (Second Largest in the world), it was completed in 4 years, joint venture between Total and Saudi Aramco, a stone throw from that refinery is a Petrochemical Plant by SADARA nearing completion, started about 1 year ago, sit down there and be defending the crooks milking Nigerians dry, the cost of oil in Saudi Arabia is dirt cheap (#21 per liter) because they refine their oil, are they not signed up to the same OPEC that we are?
|Politics / Re: Why Not Fashola? by hercules07: 9:36pm On Oct 13|
What Nigeria needs is strong men of character to build the institutions, Fashola can not deliver as many votes as Buhari, Fashola can play a pivotal role in the administration as a minister or a Senator.
|Politics / Re: The Truth: Jonathan Speaks English Better Than Buhari. by hercules07: 2:12pm On Sep 27|
He appointed those who did, not everybody believes in feudal capitalism.
|Politics / Re: The Truth: Jonathan Speaks English Better Than Buhari. by hercules07: 11:48am On Sep 27|
He led before and his economic policies were sound for the time, carriage is more important than your accent, nobody understands GEJ's english at the UN.
|Politics / Re: NIGERIA: A Nation Of Fools by hercules07: 11:44am On Sep 27|
Your president controls 56% of everything, that is why his name is shouted, let him devolve powers to the state and stop interfering, people will crucify their governors.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 12:20pm On Sep 25|
Hustling in the negative sense, buying government protection, bribing and so on, I do not think he can be a millionaire in an organised society, who dashes monkey banana.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 12:10pm On Sep 25|
Lagos has not been sold to anybody, though, there is a lot of corruption in Lagos as well. Dangote is a hustler, in Nigeria, his type of hustling yields returns at a geometric pace.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 12:06pm On Sep 25|
Not true, after the second world war, the US and Russia packed the German scientists who were at the forefront of Nuclear technology.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 11:45am On Sep 25|
Nigerians who travel out and return to the country and are able to live in the country and continue with the same crazy attitude are certifiable loons, heck, a cat's life is worth more in some countries than a human life in naija. We should stop getting Finance Ministers from the World bank, their ideas benefit the 1 percent. I do not even know Okonjo's ideology, apart from borrowing money for recurrent activities.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 11:43am On Sep 25|
Please read up on those countries before spouting nonsense, China that has been around for over 3000 years, the Persians, the Indians did not have great universities? Please remove Emeagwali from that list, the guy is a fraud, Innoson is a business man, he is no better than the Alaba boys.

Any competent Army will route the Nigeria Army in days not weeks, they should thank their stars they are fighting BH, imagine them against these ISIS guys.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 11:24am On Sep 25|
Ha, Nigerian privatisation, at least the Americans talk about trickle down economy (bullshit), our leaders dont even pretend, everything private is good, anything public is bad.

Oh thought he was the state department guy, I apologise.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 10:58am On Sep 25|
The ones defending the government on Nairaland are not gullible, they are paid.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 10:56am On Sep 25|
That is not an opinion, that is fact, you think those people do not weigh their words before they speak, they are the State Department not our Foreign Service, ask around what our diplomats think of GEJ, you will be shocked.
|Politics / Re: US Denies Blocking Fg’s Purchase Of War Aircraft by hercules07: 10:52am On Sep 25|
Nigerians think like something else, we are of little strategic interest to the US, New York's GDP is 3 times our own, when you are of little use to the US, they will go moral on your behind when selling things to you, the funny thing is, the US can be a destabilising force in almost all parts of the world, but, they have always had good intentions for Nigeria.

|Politics / Re: Seun Kuti Calls Buhari An Evil Man!!! by hercules07: 12:34pm On Sep 05|
Obiagelli has said it, Buhari jailed Fela and cracked down on human rights due to the excesses of the Civilian administration in the past. I believe most of those posting here do not have an idea of history and can not understand what necessitated the crack down.
|Politics / Re: Boko Haram Sponsorship Allegation, My Story By Modu Sheriff by hercules07: 2:48am On Sep 04|
Amodu Sheriff, Goje of Gombe, Isa Yuguda all used Boko Haram to win elections, they all sponsored the activities of the group until Yar'Adua moved against them, they were all sponsors and are the architect of BH. BH in its current incarnation is a vehicle that serves the interests of so many, it serves the interest of Generals who need to amass wealth, they are getting rich on embezzling defence money, they will never pray for BH to go away; it serves the interests of politicians who are pro and anti jonathan, the only people suffering from this is the people directly affected.
|Religion / Re: Opinion$ On Oyakhilome's Divorce by hercules07: 12:38am On Sep 04|

People using scientific discovery to promote ancient and false religions, Nigerians are number one mumu, follow follow people.
|Culture / Re: Alaafin Of OYO With Yoruba Descendants In Brazil (pictures) by hercules07: 5:54pm On Aug 25|
The Alaafin is superior to the Ooni on all fronts, it was the politics of the AG that elevated the Ooni, who was the Ooni to talk, hell, even the Modakekes sacked Ife several times, even when the Ibadans disagreed with Alaafin, they did not have the temerity to attack Oyo.
|Politics / Re: Jonathan Administration And Miraculous Petroleum Subsidy Bills by hercules07: 4:54pm On Aug 22|
You sir are an slowpoke, the cost of fuel in Saudi Arabia is #4 per liter, those prices in the US and the other western countries are because of heavy tax, we do not import from the pumps, we buy from refineries who sell far far below what you have posted up there, your PDP government and Jonathan are thieves in the Subsidy issue, the cost of fuel should not be up to #50.

According to some people flooding happens everywhere, what volume of rain did we have the caused this, ,come and see better airports with snow and heavy rains with no flooding, the Oduah woman just spent money on cosmetics and not on real infrastructure.
