Fashion / Re: Ebola: US Company Makes Ebola T-shirt Mocking Nigeria by Ilekokonit: 11:47pm On Oct 20
These oyinbo people ALWAYS have selective amnesia when it comes to Nigeria. The originator of that tee shirt chose to conveniently forget that Ebola came into Nigeria the exact same way it came into America. On a plane.

If only we had respectable politicians who are not too busy looting to care about Nigerias image in the world.

Nigeria's battered image does not concern or affect our politicians in any way as long as their stolen Billions are safe and their children do not have to hunt for jobs and face prejudice for being Nigerians.

It happened day before yesterday when we want to travel to Enugu from Abuja that my sister called me to bath with her in one bathroom to save time because we are already late for the movement but i replied her ''no''. That she should finish first because i dnt like that.

All the best but any course you do, make sure you keep your eye on the ball by knowing that what matters in future are the doors that would be open to you by the good people you meet whilst doing the course of your choice.
Education / Re: I Need Advise Urgently!!!! by Ilekokonit: 6:13pm On Oct 20
Tell your Dad my story.

I was "cajoled" to study Medicine from a young age by my mum. so I did Jamb 3 times, did not fail once as i scored 224 Ist time, 250 2nd time, and 284 final time and entered UI medicine when the cut off was 280.

After 4 years at UI Medical school, I became disillusioned, lost the zeal to study and the final straw that made me leave was consistently seeing people score more marks than me in exams when 20% of my class were known to cheat in exams and the already brilliant Professor of Medicine's children would see the exam questions before the d/day and leak same to their friends and hangers on and anyone who was adept at doing eye service which I wasn't.

So, I left Medical school much to my mums dismay and started and completed the ACCA exams at my own pace

How many years and how much money was wasted ?
3 years on Jamb + 4 Years at UI making 7 whole years plus a lot of money on feeding, travel and expensive text books.

This time needn't have been wasted if my Mum did not brain wash me from a young age that I was going to study Medicine. The hand writing was already on the wall that I was more gifted with figures as i did not have to study to pass Mathematics. Once the teacher or my dad explained the logic to me, it stuck forever.

Its not what you read at school that makes you in life but who you know and a huge dose of LUCK.

If I came to life again, I would choose and do the easiest course in the Uni because that almost guarantees me a first class degree and means that whilst my Law, Engineering and especially Medical shool mates are studying for 16 hours a day, I can study for just 3 hours a day, join the right social clubs, go to all the fun parties, have time to socialise and build future networks AND STILL get a first class degree.

And later, I will get good jobs or contracts faster than my brow beaten / "hard course" / damaged / tired colleagues because in this Old boys network world, the fact that I had enough free time to socialise with the right people at Uni means that any good jobs or contracts going will possibly have my name in the top prospects list simply because I had time for socialising at Uni because I did not choose or was not forced to do a difficult course that wears you down with next to no future financial rewards.

There are so many Hungry Lawyers and Underfed Medical Doctors in Nigeria.

Or why do you think Governor Mimiko, Governor Uduaghan and Ex-Governor Odili who are qualified Medical doctors decide to hang their stethoscopes and venture successfuly into politics.

The current Governor of Ogun State Ibikunle Amosun had F9 parallel in Maths, Physics and Chemistry O#levels and still became Governor. This proves once again that "Its not what you know but who you know" that matters in life

Aja to ma sonu ko ni gbo fere olode. (A dog that is determined to get lost will not hear the farmers whistle).

It seems Nigerians prefer to hail the corrupt politicians and rubbish the few honest ones. Same way Gani Fawehinmi contested and lost because Nigerians preferred being held captive by Bandits.

Same way Nigerians respond in arguments with the silly phrase if you yourself get there you will steal

What a cop out. Are we now saying that out of 170 million people there is not 1 genuinely honest person ?

A genuinely frugal and by ALL accounts honest man puts himself forward to rescue us from criminals and all we can do is to ridicule the man and yet we will go to our places of worship and scream at God to send us a messiah when there is already one in our midst.

Maybe its a case of Stockholm syndrome where the captured / kidnapped starts developing excuses for why he deserved to be kidnapped.
Politics / Re: E-VOTE (NOW) for President : Jonathan (GEJ) Vs. Buhari (GMB) by Ilekokonit: 1:57am On Oct 16
hifaif:


I heard and read from government textbooks and wikipedia that Buhari and his deputy, Idiagbon, abhorred corruption and that Nigerians were forced to be disciplined during their regime.

I also read from Wiki that there were beliefs that IBB toppled Buhari's government because corrupt officers and politicians were threatened by Buhari's stance against corruption.

Buhari was a thorn in the flesh of corrupt politicians that he replaced. For starters their stolen cash became too hot to handle for them as a masterstroke of Buhari's was for him to unexpectedly change the design and colour of naira bills in 1983 thus forcing everyone who had naira in their posession to go to the banks to exchange the old notes for the new ones. Now corruptly enriched ex-politicians dared not take their loot to the bank to exchange as the fear of Buhari then was the beginning of wisdom.

If OBJ was given a chance to rule us for 8 years then Buhari deserves a chance too. Of the lot, Buhari stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of his frugality and honesty. Buhari is simply a cut above Jonathan in terms of integrity.

Buhari has just finished Jonathan.

Hear him :- “I want to pay tribute to Nigerians who are enduring all sorts of hardship and degradations on a daily basis,” Buhari said.

“Many are grappling with extreme poverty and barely eking out a living.

Nigeria, in my experience, has never been so divided, so polarised by an unthinking government, hellbent on ruling and stealing.

The economy continues to deteriorate while the Government continues to announce fantastic growth figures. Simply because you sell oil and steal part of the money does not entitle you to cook figures and announce phantom economic growth.

When PDP came to power in 1999 Nigeria was generating about 4,000 M/W of electricity. After 15 years and $20 billion spent we are generating between 3,000 – 4,000 M/W. No failure is more glaring than this.

I think Mikel was given food for thought by a Journalist on the plane back from the 1-0 loss to Sudan in Khartoum on Saturday. The journalist stood up to Mikel's excuses of a bad pitch and told Mikel that they do not deserve to go to the tournament. Also Okocha criticised the Eagles performance.

If only our political journalists can drop their Ghana must go journalism and call a spade a spade to our Polithiefians on the pages of their newspapers

The journalists eyeball to eyeball criticism of Mikel on that plane coupled with Okocha's criticisms probably got Mikel thinking and for a fleeting second he managed to re-discover the dribbling genius that made Man U and Chelsea fight over him when he was about moving to the UK around 2004 and Mikel had to resort to hiding in his hotel to think about the juiciest offer to accept.

Shame that Chelsea changed his skillful game to a more cautious one albeit that he is smiling to the bank on a weekly basis.

Mr Mitchell has always denied using the word 'pleb' during the argument

Mr Mitchell said he was 'very pleased that justice has been done'

Wallis has offered to resign and pleaded guilty at first opportunity



By Stephen Wright and Tim Shipman

PUBLISHED: 11:08, 10 January 2014

Police officer Keith Wallis today admitted falsely claiming to have witnessed the Downing Street 'plebgate' incident

The Commissioner of the Metropolitan police apologised to former Cabinet minister Andrew Mitchell last night – after a serving police officer admitted that they had lied about ‘Plebgate’.

In what was described as ‘a black day for the Met’, PC Keith Wallis – who falsely claimed to have witnessed the infamous row between a colleague and Mr Mitchell – pleaded guilty to misconduct in public office.


The former Chief Whip said he was ‘pleased that justice had been done’ but said ‘serious questions remained’ over the conduct of the police.

The Prime Minister quickly rallied to support him, raising the prospect that Mr Mitchell could eventually return to frontline politics.

Mr Cameron said: ‘It is completely unacceptable for a serving police officer to falsify an account of any incident.


'Andrew Mitchell has consistently denied the version of events presented in the email and I welcome the fact that the officer concerned has now pleaded guilty.’

And Met Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe was forced to make a grovelling apology, after initially backing the officers involved in the affair.

Speaking in November 2012, Mr Hogan-Howe insisted that he was ‘100 per cent’ behind the officers, saying: ‘They accurately reported what happened. All the evidence I saw led me to think it was accurate.

‘I believe my officers. They had no reason to lie.’

But in an embarrassing climbdown, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said Wallis, 53, had fallen ‘way below’ the standards expected of officers.


Conservative MP Andrew Mitchell was forced to resign as the party's chief whip following claims that he labelled Downing Street police officers 'plebs'. He has always denied the claims

Pc Keith Wallis sent an email to his MP, the deputy chief whip John Randall, falsely claiming to have witnessed the Downing Street row.

MPs have demanded to know why the Met Chief had been so quick to back the officers’ version of events.

Conservative Michael Ellis, who sits on the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, said it was a ‘major crisis for the Metropolitan Police’.

Asked whether the affair had become a ‘major crisis’ for the Met, Croydon South MP Sir Richard said: ‘We now have firm evidence that a police officer has lied to bring down a cabinet officer and a huge injustice has been done.

Business / UK Financial Watchdog Knew Co-op Bank Chairman Had A Criminal Conviction by Ilekokonit: 11:50pm On Jan 10
No better reminder than the following story that "Its not what you know in the system, its who you know"


UK Financial Watchdog (The Financial Services Authority - FSA) knew Co-op bank chairman had only been a clerk and had a criminal conviction... but rubber-stamped his appointment anyway

He did not even have the full AIB Qualification !!!!!!!

Paul Flowers's role approved by the FSA in 2010 after a 90 minute interview

Senior official of FSA says although Flowers lacked experience he gave 'cogent' answers

By James Salmon

PUBLISHED: 01:04, 8 January 2014

The appointment of Reverend Paul Flowers as Co-op Bank chairman came despite the City watchdog knowing his banking experience was limited to four years as a clerk in the 1960s, MPs were told yesterday.

Clive Adamson, who was a senior figure at the now-defunct Financial Services Authority, rubber-stamped the appointment after a 90-minute interview in 2010, even though he also knew the disgraced former Methodist minister had been convicted for gross indecency.

The senior regulator, now head of supervision at the new Financial Conduct Authority, was hauled to appear before the Treasury Select Committee yesterday.


The panel of MPs and peers is investigating the near-collapse of the so-called ‘ethical’ bank, which secured a rescue package last month to plug a £1.5billion black hole in its finances.

Flowers quit his £132,000-a-year job last summer after the shortfall was identified. But in November, footage emerged of him allegedly buying crystal meth and crack cocaine. He is now on police bail.

He has also been accused of using his work email while a Labour councillor in Bradford to organise drug-fuelled SinParties with male prostitutes.


Mr Adamson said he was aware of Reverend Flowers’s spent conviction for gross indecency after he was caught performing a sex act in a public toilet in 1981, but said the nature of the conviction was deemed to be ‘not directly relevant to his ability to do the job’.

MPs also grilled Mr Adamson about why he approved the man now dubbed the ‘Crystal Methodist’ to run a bank despite knowing he lacked relevant skills.

Mr Adamson rejected accusations from committee chairman Andrew Tyrie that the appointment was ‘negligent’, saying: ‘I don’t think it was a mistake in terms of the decision I made at the time with the information I had.’

Before revelations over his private life emerged, the suspended minister admitted to the Treasury Committee in November that his only banking experience was four years as a clerk after leaving university in the late 1960s.


The Reverend’s lack of knowledge was highlighted when he was asked by MPs to estimate the size of the Co-op Bank’s balance sheet. He said it was £3billion, only to be informed that the real size was £47billion.

Mr Adamson said he knew the Reverend lacked banking experience but said he gave more ‘cogent’ answers in the 2010 interview.

Instead, he said the Reverend was appointed to bring together an ‘unruly board of 22 indididuals’ at the bank. But Mr Tyrie responded: ‘One of your solutions to taming this unruly board was putting in a financial illiterate as its chair.’


Asked by Mr Tyrie if he would approve of chair of nuclear power station who knew nothing about nuclear energy, Mr Adamson responded: 'It would depend on the circumstances.'


Mr Adamson rejected accusations from committee chairman Andrew Tyrie that the appointment was ‘negligent’. He said:

‘I don’t think it was a mistake in terms of the decision I made at the time with the information I had.’

Asked about Flowers’ past conviction, he added: ‘We regarded it, but it was from 1981 and we didn’t think that the nature of that conviction was directly relevant to his ability to do the job. We had to be very careful not to draw inferences from people’s private lives into their professional lives’.

Mr Adamson also admitted he was unaware of Flowers’ later conviction for drink driving in 1990.

'Financial illiterate': The Reverend¿s lack of knowledge was highlighted when he was asked by MPs to estimate the size of the Co-op's balance sheet. He said it was £3billion; in fact the real size was £47billion

Police have seized Reverend Flowers’ Co-op work computer and his laptop hard drive from his time as a Labour councillor in Bradford

He has been accused of using his work email to organise drugs fuelled SinParties with male prostitutes.

Flowers resigned from Bradford Council in September 2011 after adult pornographic material was found on his computer.


The shoddy management of the Co-op Bank has led it to the brink.

It sealed a rescue package last month to plug a £1.5billion black hole in its finances.

The Co-op Group, the funeral services to supermarkets giant which owned the Co-op Bank, has ceded control of the lender to hedge funds.

Thousands of ordinary investors have been forced to take a haircut on their investments to help ensure the bank stays afloat.

That undoubtedly shows humility on his part BUT the guy simply does not have enough brain cells to be Nigeria's President. It will be a calamity for Nigeria if we have another 4 years of Gross Incompetence from GEJ and I would rather have another Ijaw man or woman replacing Jonathan and staying for another 8 years or more AS LONG AS that replacement has solid O'levels as against GEJ's evidently fraudulent PHD.

are nigerians suffering from a case of stockholm syndrome where the kidnapped (the masses) now start having sympathy for their kidnapper (the lootocrats) ??

people are now afraid of calling a spade a spade because they fear that a corrective revolution would stop them from going to their jobs to earn a living while driving past 90% of the population who have hunger, fear, poverty, hopelessness and utter despair apparent on their faces.

they are "afraid of change" because a revolution will mean that they temporarily will not be able to go to shoprite or silverbird galleria even though they at times drive past dead bodies on the way to their temporary enjoyment.


they dont want to sacrifice any comfort because at least they have jobs and are not particularly downtrodden "at the moment".

they will criticise any one who points a finger at our corrupt rulers because the corruption of our politicians has "not yet" reduced them to abject poverty.

at least they can pay their immediate bills "at the moment".


but for how long will we refuse to call a spade a spade like fela did ??

instead of letting us collectively shame our leaders into stopping their corruption we are busy pontificating against any one who exposes our corrupt rulers because we do not want to rock the boat.

our politicians have "ganged up" against us to make our lives a misery thus far.

when are we going to "gang up" against them and tell them that enough is enough ?

if we don't have that courage yet, when are we going to learn to give the most courageous amongst us the moral support they rightfully deserve ??


*********************** or is cowardice and self deceit in our dna ? ************************


****************** can't we get out of our comfort zones for once ? ************************

haven't you heard about the word "critical mass" ?

until we have a "critical mass" of nigerians who boldly say enough is enough or if they are not bold enough then try and give the boldest among us the moral support he or she needs to confront our evil rulers, nigeria is not yet ready for equitable redistribution of our "common wealth".

it took just one guy who was fed up of being oppressed to set himself on fire and die before tunisia was liberated followed by egypt and latterly libya.

haven't we heard of righteous anger ??


God will not leave himself without a witness.


courage to speak the truth in the face of apparent danger to your life can only be given by God.


"170 million people can not all remain cowards forever"

Yes, our captors have Guns to kill and silence us if we take to the streets in protest BUT we have a weapon that reaches further than theirs in our COLLECTIVE internet voice, so we should learn NOT to use our own weapon to justify the evil doings of our heartless adversaries who don't give a hoot if mine or your children die of poverty and/or hopelessness induced by the corruption of Nigerian Politicians and their associates
