|Politics / Re: Boko Haram Leader Shekau Has Fled Nigeria, Escorted By " White Men "? by KnowAll(m): 7:38pm On May 23|
They do, but it is easy to identify them as just "white men" not necessarily Americans or Europeans, it might be anybody. But the fact that they are not seen dressed as Arabs no one can say if they are Arabs unless they were heard talking in Arabic.
since they were not speaking Arabic were they then speaking your so called "white language" if there is anything like that, having said that every one knows Shekarau can only speak Hausa, Arabic and maybe Kanuri would it not be more plausible that he was with white men he understands their languages which again points to Arabians not necessary Europeans or Americans.!!!

so what if the police men had succeeded in wiping out the chief priest and his followers as they were planning to who would have revenged for the tribesmen.

Suits and trouser is to white men, robes and Jalabiyya is to arabs, so "white men" is the appropriate term to describe them I think.
So Arabs don't wear suit and trousers which kind thinking be this one!!!
|Politics / Re: ACN Accuses President Jonathan Of Deceiving Nigerians On State Of Emergency In B by KnowAll(m): 7:23pm On May 23|
mikeansy: I cant make sense of what Lai Mohamed is saying
Basically what Lai Mohammed is saying in essence is that President Goodluck Jonathan can theoretically over-rule the state house of assembly and withhold funds accrued to the states during "SOE" but in practice I do not see that happening except obviously the state Governor is found culpable of sponsoring BH activities, funding BH activities, sabotaging & jeopardizing JTF's effort and strategy. In the event of such happenings, the President can use emergency powers to side-step the 'state house of assembly' and stifle any funds given or accrued to the state government.

We have to give kudos where kudos is due. If the next President comes and declares a state of emergency removing the Governor or disbanding the House of Assembly their would be upheaval in that state, that is a certainty. so kudos to President Goodluck for setting up a good precedence.
|Politics / I Hope OBJ Would Be The Last Illiterate President 'SOE'- Revisited!!!! by KnowAll(m): 4:34pm On May 21|
Since Jonathan Goodluck has now set a precedence of declaring a 'state of emergency' without touching the democratic structures in the states involved it suffices it to say that no one else would have the tenacity, the courage nor the bragaddocious libido to undo what would now be seen as the new norm and the new way of declaring 'SOE' without them looking like some idiotic " Idi Amin " or some clueless President.
At least for once, the President's academical credentials speaks for itself whether the credentials were those of the University of Port-Harcourt or that of Cambridge, a learned fellow or leader is an invaluable asset not only to the country but in the interpretation of our revered holy grail book called the "constitution".
Hopefully and going forward, no new aboki President, Igbo President or even Yoruba President would be able to undo the good works and deeds Jonathan has bestowed on the nation by respecting the tenets, letters and wordings of our constitution to the hilt . He has not only dotted the i's and crossed the t's with regards to the interpretation of our constitution he has also honored the good book without appearing aloof and dictatorial, kudos to Mr President.
The draconian edits and decrees lampooned on the nation by OBJ whilst declaring a "State of Emergency" would and should be something of the past just like the dinosaurs are now seen as animals that once roamed the world. Any future President who disregard this precedence does so at his or her own perils and I can assure you, whoever goes down that inglorious route would bring shame, disheveled chaos and turbulence on themselves which may or may not consumed them, but that gamble is one gamble if I was the President I would not wish to take.
Most Important message of this little piece !!!!!!!!!!!!
On that note, looks like Mr President has gone one step further at clipping Messers Buhari's natural antecedence whose intuition and background cannot be too far off from those of Baba Iyabo, Kudos once more to President Goodluck Jonathan.

This is what the Nigerian Airforce needs.
|Politics / Re: Boko-Haram Regroups In The Mountains Of Adamawa by KnowAll(m): 10:15am On May 21|
Does Nigerian Airforce have Bombers, I know we have Fighter Jets, this is where the bombers come into it, unfortunately we do not have those flying fortress B52 Bombers. Boko Haram are running into the " Daisy Cutter territories " the Daisy cutter is one massive bomb as big as a mini- van used in Afganistan .
It was used in the Tora-Bora Mountains by the US Airforce to dislodge Al queada operatives when they were hunting for Bin Ladin, Since we don't have this kind of weaponry, I don't want to burst your bubbles or your opportunism, it would be tough for Naija troops on those mountains in Adamawa State.
|Politics / Re: Why Are You An Ardent Buhari Supporter? by KnowAll(m): 6:13pm On May 19|
we know you flip flop. We were here when you were supporting Jonathan, later you switched support to Buhari. Now you are yabbing the same Buhari. We do not even want your support. You can give it to the young 'un expired' confused incompetent peeps looting you dry in Abuja.
Food wey don pass sellby date pickin for london no dey gree chop am. Buhari should be humiliated in the next poll, you know when u beat someone, don't do a TKO(TECHNICAL KNOCK OUT) Do a proper KO, so that he would not even fathom running in 2019 not less thinking of running.
The road for Buhari at this juncture of his life is travelling the short distance 6 feet under and that more than anything should be his primary pre-occupation not allowing people to keep on wasting ballot papers. Does he know we have global warming all that ballot papers his name is imprinted on can save enough trees in the forest.
|Politics / Re: Why Are You An Ardent Buhari Supporter? by KnowAll(m): 5:49pm On May 19|
I was a buhari fan but "no maas"(roberto duran)I would give 159 million, 999,999 Nigerians my vote than give the Ayatollah from Daura my one vote. Buhari has passed his sell by date.
Anyone who votes for this old relic surely wants to take us back in time to 1984. Can someone please tell Ayatollah Buhari that the world has moved on from "telex" and "fax" to Skype and e-mails

all this abatiti clowns forming guru on southwest affairs ehn, get your behind on one ifeshinachi bus and come cure your ignorance. ogbomoso is expecting it first dualized road plus ultra modern market latest by ending of this year same for saki,iseyin and oyo town down to interior ibarapa as far as eruwa,lanlate and igboora. the newly constructed iseyin road is so wide I thought I was at the lagos entrance end of the lagos ibadan expressway. always get your fact right before coming to public forum to show your ignorance. the lautech milieu has been resolved now that for the past 8 years the last session was the fastest, that the graduates are mobilized for batch a for nysc.
Have u been to shaki or iseyin those towns look like some garrison towns of the kiriji wars of 1890's, no form of development. In Iseyin Town Aso-Oke is the only business in town, if I lie show us the picture. Ogbomosho and Oyo becos a federal road passes through their territory hence some semblance of development apart from that, the Oyatoooo Gov Akala made some effort in Ogbomosho and he got his returns with the 400,00o votes that came his way. What of Oyo Alaafin, nothing dey happen as far as I am concerned.

|Politics / Re: Why Tenure Limit For Nigerian Governors? by KnowAll(m): 2:17pm On May 19|
Haba, I don't suuport one tunre, Politics is fun, the fact that a failing Governor can be thrown out after the first term makes politics very intresting and dynamic. Most Political Thieves loose most of their loot during re-elections and if it so happens they loose the elections they would probably go bankrupt. Many of them would experience untold hardship afterwards.
Can anyone of u just imagine and quantify how much Ohakim of Imo State has loss in his bid to win the elections in Imo State.
|Politics / Re: Why Tenure Limit For Nigerian Governors? by KnowAll(m): 1:59pm On May 19|
I think a Governor's tenure should be 2 terms but maybe 2 terms of at least 6 years each. In Africa we are still developing and a Good Governor at the helms of affair could have significant impact on the people than all these 4 year tenure. But having said that, some Governors might find the 6 years too long, tiresome that could lead to complacency and boredom thereby rather than impact positively it could be the opposite.
|Politics / Re: Oyo, Wemabod Begin Construction Of 4,000-shop Complex In Ibadan by KnowAll(m): 1:47pm On May 19|
Is Oyo State Ibadan Ibadan is just about 1/5 of Oyo State, what has the Governor done in Shaki, Iseyin, Ogbomosho or Oyo Town nothing. Does the Governor think Ibadan votes alone can make him win Oyo State !!!!!!!!!!!
|Politics / Re: CP Orders Arrest Of Rivers’ Speaker. by KnowAll(m): 5:58am On May 19|
Interesting a poor police commisioner inviting a very rich & wealthy speaker for question.
Those men in black can never be trusted? just imagine d conversation of d cp & speaker?
CP: Mr speaker wetin u and oga Governor come do to Mr President, our boys want to work for u but oga at d top say we should withdraw some of our boys.
Mr Speaker: You know all these things na politics, I am sure we can come to some reasonable arrangement.
CP: If pressure from Abuja continues, this is what we shall do. Our boys would be in mufti either way oga u go win this battle. Abuja would not know we are still given u security cover.
Mr Speaker: Mr mbu I know u will come out with a fantastic idea, i will talk to d Governor about it, least I forget we will be celebrating d 20th remebrance annivesary of my wife's grate uncle, so see u next weekend.
CP: yes sir, u know i cannot come in person but send something through Musa.
Mr Speaker: I understand. Don't worry i will give Musa something for u.

Mr Speaker: I know that, I can always trust u boys.
|Politics / Re: 2014 Osun Guber Poll: Who Will Occupy Bola Ige House? by KnowAll(m): 5:20am On May 19|
Do you non-Yoruba's know what "ogbeni" means well let me tell you, it means " Mr" Emperor(being d pet name I gave d Governor for being d only Governor in Southern Nigeria to vote against d President in 2011) Aregbesola is a non-titled man in a country where everyone is obssessed with titles from Dr. Mrs, Alhaji, Alhaja, Architect, Chief or even egineer which d good people of d press bestowed on him despite his prefrence for just " Ogbeni".
Ogebeni can also sound derogatory, i can remember my father using the word for people he knew had no pedigree in society, not that he was a proud man, but it is d way d usage of word comes across.
By acknowldging d accronym 'Ogbeni' d Governor has not only bestowed on himself d unenviable platitudes of a man of d people but has endured in identifying with d common man or woman therby distancing himself from d aloofness d position of a Governor usually holds. This more than anything would make emperor Aregbesola sail through without holding any prisoners.

do u need tfare to borno so u can relay dis ur msg to d JTF commander? Ewu! Typical nigerian, ITK.
I beg when we see something that is wrong, we should say it, I personally don't want this military expedition to go peer-shape but this kind of 24 hours curfew does not make sense. They can impose 24 hours curfew from 5 am on Sunday to 5 am on Monday, and within that 24 hours conduct a house to house search of the so called Boko-Haram Strong-hold.
But to have 24 hours curfew indefinitely does not make sense. We are all learned fellows presumably, when we see something that is wrong we should say it, is it when Aljazera or BBC start telling the whole world some women and children are starving to death in their homes we now change tact, I beg commanders on the ground, u are going into uncharted territory, State of Emergency does not mean u have d license to take lives willy-nilly!!!!

The bottom lines are the Yoruba's will vote ACN in the Gubernatorial elections but the Presidential elections would probably go to Jonathan, I see a repetition of the 2011 election results.
Not many Southerners and that includes the Yoruba's will trust a Northerner with the Presidency come 2015.!!!

|Politics / Re: Looks Like Jonathan's Approval Ratings Has Hit The Roof? by KnowAll(m): 8:34pm On May 17|
Who is doing the rating?
You don't have to be a rocket science to know the ratings has cause internal strive and bickerings amongst the opposition, a feat no other policy has acheived since 2011.
Take a peep at following strive amongst the opposition parties, human right lawyers and social/ political commentators :
1. ANPP Supports Mr President's SOE
2.ACN diagree with SOE
3. Ribadu ACN Presidential Candidate supports SOE
4. Fani Kayode OBJ's' pit-bull dog agrees but reckon the President should have gone a step further relinquishing the Governors of their mandates- ( which I disagree with, I think Mr President made the right decision)
5. Mr Critic Dele Momodu supports SOE
6. Human Rights Lawyers, Falana, Kumoyi and some others supports the SOE, and where impress with the Presidents's decision to keep the democratic institutions intact.
7. A random sample in many Social media outlet,one can sense and feel an overwhelming support in face-book, twitter, and Nairaland for Mr Presidents decision.
so Mr man, I hope your question has been answered.
|Politics / Re: Cry, The Beloved Police! by KnowAll(m): 6:42pm On May 17|
The Nigerian police are attack dogs(more wolfish than doggish thus!!! ; ) their modus operendi is to overkill once they see, sight or observe any sign of weekness on their intended prey. I watched some opportunistic Big cats in action in d Serengeti in Tanzania, there were these band of lions called the "wandering or solo lions" their very existence is anchored on opportunity, they will never ever attack a fully grown buffalo, antelope or zebra, but once they spot a prey with a bad leg, or limbs they exercise patience following the prey until such a time the prey becomes tired, exhauxted and dis-connected from the herd, it is then they strike. The modus operendi of these lions remind me of the Nigerian Police.
The Nigerian Police were informed in Nassarawa State that, they were going into d forest to pick up an old tribal priest, I bet d 103 men who met their Waterloo in that revered forest never thought of the risk factor a day b4, they probably thought it would be one of those run-in-the -mill operations not like while-wind, avalanche of destruction that they met. Some would still be wondering how they landed in heaven or hell(mostly likely hell because nothing good can ever come out of the Nigerian Police) but I am sure the good lord will and maybe our dear devil would laugh and mock them for the fools they have been, I bet he would also ridicule them by announcing to them their debacle was his own making, and that at least he has achieved his primary goal of bring them to their true home.

I think Okorocha would be embarrassed by ACN's position with regards to "SOE" already RIbadu has come out equivocally in support of the President. Where does Okorocha stand at least we no where ANPP stands.
