Cramjones,please deactivate your account and come back as another person. The damage has been done and you cannot redeem it.
What a shame! angry

Don't mind the mad scammer.

He wants to use his FFK persona to dupe Jonathan and use his Cramjones identity to fleece APC via a front since APC will no longer touch FFK with a long broomstick.

Yoruba people can turn their coat faster than you can say "chai".

What a perplexing turn of events that tribalism has so taken hold of even educated Nigerians that you can't but worry for the future of Nigeria.

back to the topic ... if FFK's defection is true then is it not the same FFK that castigated GEJ with the following articles on his website some time ago ??

recent articles by FFK about GEJ :-

A president without balls

Jonathan, Tukur and a Government of Jezebels

http://www.femifanikayode.org/published-articles.html


My own take which i suspected all along and the burden of proof now rests on FFK's shoulders to prove me wrong is that :-

FFK and Cramjones are one and the same person.

FFK i.e Cramjones was never welcome in APC and was given the cold shoulder in APC

Did anyone ever notice that FFK was never present in the group photos APC topshots took at their recent meetings / Annual conference

FFK missing in just one recent APC photo is understandable but the guy was never shown in all the recent APC photos

In order to show that he was friends / colleagues with APC stalwarts FFK / cramjones resorted to trying to bamboozle us on Nairaland with old photos he took with El Rufai and Ribadu (a typical name droppers strategy)

Also if really FFK had the ears of APC leaders, he wouldn't be revealing his inner thoughts on who APC should field as VP etc on Nairaland, he would have given that top secret to Tinubu / Akande / Buhari in private and not on Nairaland

So I conclude with a high degree of certainty that all FFK a.k.a Cramjones had been writing on Nairaland since he joined is nothing short of multiple open letters to APC leaders who (for reasons best known to them) had failed to give FFK / Cramjones an audience in private.

Cramjones recent boasts of his 10,000 likes / Xyz followers on Nairaland was a calculated attempt that seems to have now worked by trying to intimidate PDP with statistics that he single handedly had boosted APC's political following amongst more than 1,000,000 voting Nigerians on Nairaland.

Hence FFK ./ Cramjones even offered to buy Nairaland from Seun some weeks ago.


PDP seeing all this decided to call FFK to the negotiating table without realising that FFK is not really a relevant OR influential APC member.

Come to think of it, the people with influence in APC would have been too busy strategizing towards 2015 than to have the amount of time that FFK / Cramjones had to spend on Nairaland.

This FFK / Cramjones has the mind of a criminal just like all Nigerian politicians bar none.

Btw if as is being speculated, GEJ is rewarding FFK' s defection to PDP by calling the EFCC off FFK's back on his fraud trial, then that speaks a lot about GEJ as well and they both are not on the side of the common man.

Who knows, maybe God is angry at Nigerians hence our being blessed cursed with such wicked leaders.

Religion / Re: Why Pastors Are Richer Than Their Members In Nigeria – Oritsejafor by Ilekokonit: 12:23am On Mar 31
How much would you milk from a man who pays a tithe of N1000?

Quite a lot when you factor in the "multiplier effect" seeing that the "commonised" N1000 multiplied by 10,000 followers equals a princely sum of N10,000,000.?

Its as simple as the "multiplier effect" we all studied in O'level economics and these "Harvesters" have perfected the art of using this simple equation.

Now extrapolate N10,000 monthly tithe multiplied by 10,000 members to give N100,000,000 as tithe income per month or N1,200,000,000 tithe income per year

That's a princely N1.2 billion as tithe income per year to a church pastor who has just 10,000 loyal members who pay a N10,000 monthly tithe gate fee to see the man or woman with the gift of the gab strut his stuff on the pulpit and regurgitate every Sunday what he has managed to cram from American Prosperity Preachers Books.

Most of these Pastorpreneurs also spice their emotionally charged and unnecessarily loud sermons performances with a mix of motivational stuff snake oil the charlatan has managed to glean from the likes of "Anthony Robbins" by studious study from Monday to Saturday whilst his church members victims were too busy being stressed by going to work and hence will gladly pay his tithe gate fee to hear some hope lifting sweet words from the Pastor Fake Magician every Sunday.

If these charlartans hope inspiring "well rehearsed" messages performances had any real substance, then why do majority of church members feel their problems return the moment they step out of Sunday church serrvice

And the cycle continues into perpetuity as according to Fela, "Pastor house na him dey fine pass, my people dem dey live for poor surroundings".

Osise wa loo run aba ni nawo mbe ni iboji (The worker is in the sun whilst the money spender is sheltered in the shade of the pulpit).

And yet some people will say Fela is in hell. Well if that were true then the hottest part of hell is reserved for ALL Nigerian Politicians and a large percentage of Nigerian Pastorpreneurs.

Politics / Re: No FG Directive To Return Applicants’ Money — Immigration by Ilekokonit: 4:59am On Mar 25
The criminals running Nigeria do not believe in refunding ill gotten money to the duped masses

For example, the Corporate Affairs Commission since 2008 has not yet refunded depositors monies that they seized from Wonderbanks (the likes of Nospecto Oil and Gas)

The CAC made so much noise and fanfare in the Newspapers in 2008 that the monies seized from the Wonder banks will be returned pro rata to depositors once depositors submitted receipts and paperwork concerning all their deposits to the CAC offices.

For where ?? This is 6 years later and still no depositor has been refunded.

According to Reuben Abati then, We have everything Except leaders, good leaders. That is our problem.”

“Abacha was the worst.” “The man should be tied to a stake and shot.”

They should exhume Abachas skeleton and pump some holes into it.”

Abati then also claimed that he is usually not kind towards thieves of which Abacha was one.

Abati also wanted them to take a gallon of sulphuric acid and pour it on Abacha’s remains since according to Abati, Abacha also did the same thing to Ken Saro-Wiwa, and the Ogoni Nine.

Now that Abati is part of the Lootocrats sucking Nigeria dry, he has miraculously turned to an Abacha apologist.

Politics / David Mark And Bankole Got $30m Monthly From NNPC according to Wikileaks by Ilekokonit: 3:01am On Mar 09
Could this explain the missing $20 billion ?

Stumbled across an old thread from 2011

http://www.nairaland.com/759520/mark-bankole-got-m-monthly

No wonder successive Lootocrats are happy with the current Nigerian constitution that forbids NNPC from being Audited

David Mark, Bankole Got $30m Monthly Kickback From NNPC according to Wikileaks

Senate President David Mark and former Speaker of the House of Representatives Dimeji Bankole were monthly receiving $30 million each from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) during the late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua’s administration, a leaked confidential US diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks said.


The cable quoted Nigerian former Ambassador to the United Nations Maitama Sule as saying that Yar’Adua turned down approximately $60 million which had been offered to him by the NNPC as the President’s personal “share” of the nation’s monthly oil.


Sule, according to the cable, alleged that the NNPC, right from Obasanjo’s administration, allocated USD 1.00 per barrel of oil sold as a type of personal payment or “kickback” to the President.

“While Yar’Adua ordered his “share” to be deposited into the nation’s treasury, First Lady Tura’i Yar’adua pocketed her husband’s reported share, while Senate President David Mark and House Speaker Dimeji Bankole pocketed USD 0.50/barrel (e.g., $30 million)” the cable quoted Sule as revealing.

“In light of the possibility that Obasanjo could have stolen billions of dollars under this arrangement, Sule told PolOff that Yar’Adua told him that he may use this information, perhaps one day in the near future, to indict Obasanjo for corruption.

“The problem however, according to Sule, rested in the fact that Yar’Adua recognized that if he were to pursue Obasanjo, he may unwittingly subject his wife and close advisers to greater scrutiny, and risk his own political survival”, the cable added. When contacted by Daily Trust to comment on the allegation that he told the American intelligence cable in 2008 that former President Obasanjo had one dollar for every barrel of crude oil produced in Nigeria as kickback, Sule said he “could not remember having said so”.

He said he did not say so “since I know nothing about oil industry because I did not work there and have no business whatsoever with Nigeria’s oil sector”.

Sule, who now holds the traditional title of Danmasanin Kano, added that it is only those in government that could know government secret and how things are being run there.

Reacting to a leaked confidential US diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks, the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the NNPC, Dr Levi Ajuonuma told Daily Trust on phone that the allegation was nonsense and ridiculous.

“No Senate President or Speaker has ever received anything as kickback from the Corporation. It is just concocted and baseless”, he added.

Senate President David Mark yesterday denied reports credited to the Wikileaks that he and some other top government officials received the sum of $30m monthly as kickback from the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) in 2007.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Kola Ologbondiyan, Mark said he could not believe that Alhaji Maitama Sule, an elder statesman, would have made the statements ascribed to him by the United States of America (USA) former Ambassador, Robin Sanders, as contained in the Wikileaks.

He described the allegation as “malicious, spurious, wicked and mere fabrication of a mind that is fertile in mischief.

“I have no knowledge of any kickback or proceed from the NNPC neither did I, at any time, in concert with the late President Umaru Musa YarAdua; his wife, Turai and the former House of Representatives Speaker, Hon. Dimeji Sabur Bankole, engaged in corrupt practices or receive kickback of $30 million.”

So, if a Nigerian is returning to Nigeria, the customs officers at MMIA can charge him/her a 2% levy on all personal phones & laptops found in their possession regardless of if new or not

What value will the 2% be based on

What if the phone is a gift or owned by a child below working age ??

What if my phone does not have a camera or any facility that can be used for copyright infringement ??

Ehimenboy:
Little/no more inspiration from my environment with parents who nag at the slightest mistakes.....and finally, I'm beginning to dislike myself!


Your parents are getting frustrated at the elusive admission. hence their nagging. My advice is for you to put medicine to one side and gain admission for any easy course with a low cut off mark. And once you gain admission you can then decide if you want to be a Doctor or not.

I for one did Jamb 3 times scoring 226 then 250 and finally 284 in the days when UI Medicine had a cut off mark of 280. Did I eventually enjoy studying Medicine ?? Suffice it to say that halfway through UI Med Sch, I completely lost the zeal to carry on and my Mum's offer of a car gift to make me stay on in Med Sch could not change my mind as I was no longer enjoying the course. So, I left and started from scratch a course that would use my gift of figures and completed the ACCA exams practically by home study.

So, don't waste too much time trying to pass Jamb to enter Med School when you may be over looking other easier and more lucrative courses that will end up using your best gifts.


Also, realise that in the University of life, its not what you know that matters but who you know.

Education / Re: UNILAG Undergraduate Goes Mad After Reading Too Much by Ilekokonit: 12:40am On Jan 30
To All Students, Make sure you sleep for at least 8 hours a day. Everyday. The Heavens will not fall if you do and you stand a better chance in the exam hall if your brain is refreshed.

Anything, be it study or work that robs you of sleep will potentially cause a chemical imbalance in your brain and if you are genetically predisposed to mental illness / nervous breakdown then that extra sleepless night(s) all in a bid to cram a years worth of study material into a few days all night study may push you over the edge without you planning for such.

A healthier and "Achievable" all year study time table is as follows :-

Personal Hygiene and Feeding 2 hours
Lectures and Practicals 8 hours Maximum
Recreation (vital) 2 Hours (vital)
Study (Every Day) 4 Hours (Every Day)
Sleep (vital) 8 Hours Minimum (vital)


You can not cheat nature and any course of study that you can not score above 50% by studying for 4 Hours consistently every day is probably not the right course for you.

If you consistently study 4 Hours per day, day in, day out then you should be able to RIGHTLY wind down the amount of study you do as the exams draw closer as you would have covered every part of your syllabus before your exam date.

What is also helpful is to try (if possible) to read 2 lectures ahead of your class so that it feels like revision every time you are in the lecture room.

Also, a time table helps to even out your study sessions and avoid the last minute cramming that leads to panic and more panic and sleepless nights and probably mental illness / nervous breakdown if you are so genetically pre-disposed.

Some courses just like some jobs can actually harm your health if you don't approach them with the proper study/rest or work/life balance.

My Ex-Wife's Dad used to say to his kids :- "Die at Reading and Win a Post-Humous Certificate". He probably did not mean it literarily and was only encouraging his kids to give studying their best shot, but his statement underlines every Nigerian parents desire for his kids to over excel academically. But at what cost ?

If you "Die at Reading and Won a Post-Humous Certificate", Of what use is the certificate if you die getting it.

Negation: Weed or no weed, he did what some people can't do in 5 lifetimes. Legend forever and ever.

Thank God we still have Nigerians who appreciate how Fela single handedly fought the corrupt elite in Nigeria to the detriment of his health and freedom.

Yes, Fela had his faults but so do all of us and whilst some of us may not smoke Igbo or marry multiple wives BUT the atrocities that some people get up to under the cover of darkness and behind closed doors leaves much to be desired and only a saint is allowed to criticise Fela and there is no saint living today apart from infant children.

Fela with all his faults had more conscience than all your 36 Governors, President, Senators, House of Rep members put together and yet Nigerians worship these demons in power and yet criticise the first Nigerian to ever challenge corrupt and wicked Governments in Nigeria.

And Fela with his fight for the common man had more conscience than all Nigerian mega Pastors whose main mission seems to be to obtain you at all costs.

Fela spoke the truth to the corrupt Government of his day whilst todays "so called" Nigerian Pastors are complicit in the brutalisation of Nigerians with poverty by the pastors neglecting to say the truth to our corrupt politicians and often times partaking of looted funds for their lavish lifestyle and still ripping off their long suffering and poor church members of their widows mite.

Did you know that when Mercedes Benz Shagari style was still a big mans car in Nigeria used by Politicians, big men and oppressors, Fela just to spite Nigeria's rich men and also to identify with the down trodden masses bought a Benz Shagari style and gave it to market women to use in transporting their vegetables to and from the market.

Fela fought a dogged fight against Nigeria's Kleptomaniac Lootocrats that landed him in jail to be physically brutalised and his house being burnt down and his Mum (also a freedom fighter) thrown down from a first floor window and killed by Obasanjo's unknown soldier who also Molested some of his wives and hospitalised him with their severe beatings all because he refused to keep quiet but CHOSE to fight for the Nigerian masses against the Corrupt Military, Politicians and so called Nigerian Big Men all point to the fact that Fela should be venerated and not castigated by Nigerians. The people that deserve to be castigated by Nigerians are the silent Pastor's who by their silence and at times outright encouragement of the Lootocracy in Government circles are accomplices to the terror of hunger and poverty that is unleashed on millions of Nigerians daily.

Fela had a conscience that is lacking in todays Nigerian Pastors

Health / Brand A Disease - And Sell A Cure - Listerine And Halitosis by Ilekokonit: 12:36am On Jan 27
The power of scare mongering and aggressive marketing

Listerine was originally invented as a surgical antiseptic. It was later sold, in distilled form, as both a floor cleaner and a cure for gonorrhea.

But it wasn't a runaway success until the 1920s, when it was aggressively marketed as a solution for "chronic halitosis" — a then obscure medical term for bad breath. Listerine's new ads then featured forlorn young women and men, eager for marriage but turned off by their mate's rotten breath. "Can I be happy with him in spite of that?" one maiden asked herself. Until that time, bad breath was not conventionally considered such a catastrophe. But Listerine changed that.

As the advertising scholar James B. Twitchell writes, "Listerine did not make mouthwash as much as it made halitosis." In just seven years, the company's revenues rose from $115,000 to more than $8 million.

I give up but I don't know about the naysayers but for me, nobody from another country is going to call Nigerian's criminals on a Nigerian forum and get silence from me.

Every country on earth has their ills but I will not go onto a Ghanaian website and call Ghanaian's criminals. And that is the crux of my argument.

Ofulefu, you are hereby awarded the title chief mumu of mumuland! Fucktard! Product of a failed educational system. Why did you stylishly ignore the post @jigga_man101 was responding to huh!


Re: Ghana Film Too Immoral


Delusional hypocrite! You quote threads where Ghanaians are insulted and turn round to play the victim. Stop insulting Ghanaians on nairaland and you will have peace on nairaland.



I'll rise above the intentional abusive name calling that you resorted to in your post and stick to the main reason of my post.

Can you or anyone justify Jigga_man101's post below :-


Nigeria is quantity over quality nothing else. Y'all did not save no one y'all Molested young girls. Criminals
