|Politics / Re: Kudos To Lagos State Government And It's Cabinet by KnowAll(m): 10:12am On Aug 20|
If only our nation can be run with such dexterity and effectiveness, then our nation would be the much talked about but elusive "El dorado" . Kudos to Fashola and his crew. We cannot discount the role played by the federal authorities for being pro-active on this one, tackling this monstrosity with the co-operation it desired to the envy and praise worthiness to Nigerians, Africans and foreigners alike.
Kudos to Fashola and his crew for being forthright from the onset.
|Health / Re: Ebola Containment: A Rare Piece Of Good News From Nigeria by KnowAll(m): 3:43pm On Aug 19|
Decentralisation has in way helped Nigeria. Unlike in Liberia,Seirra leone & Guninea where every buck stops at their president's table. In Nigeria Fashola had already started doing d right untill d feds step in. Kudos to Nigeria. Rare applaud for d nation.

|Politics / Re: Drug For Treating Ebola Should Be Feasble Within Nigeria!!! by KnowAll(m): 12:26pm On Aug 16|
We can't be waiting for America to develop a drug for us when it us that have d headache. America is actually taken medecine for our headache. Are we blocked heads in this country.
|Politics / Drug For Treating Ebola Should Be Feasble Within Nigeria!!! by KnowAll(m): 12:22pm On Aug 16|
On d face of it , a drug should be able to be developed if all our trado-medical practioners, botanist, biochemist and micro-biologist including pharmist and our pharmacologist all come together and put heads together to resolve this african disease once and for all.
Afterall Ebola attacks d immune system, so how to boost d immune system should be d starting point for any treatment regime or any drug that would be developed. With d dongoyaro tree and many others like it in Nigeria, a lot of medcines can be developed from these formidable trees so what are waiting for. Even d salt mentioned a few weeks ago has a role to play in d eventual combination of drugs and therapy that should be used if applied correctly in d right combination with other solvents.
Just wondering aloud here, Nigerian higher institutions turns out 100' s if not 1000's of d aformentioned professionals annually, are we saying these individuals all go to university to pass exam only? And after they have passed the said exam that is d end of all d knowledge they have acquired. Haba this is not right?
Come on guys, make una no fall my hand oh!!!!
|Politics / Re: Ondo Native Doctor Says He Has The Cure To Ebola [PHOTO] by KnowAll(m): 11:06am On Aug 16|
I am sure since we have been eating bushmeat from time memorial a cure or remedy for ebola would have been hidden under d numerous herbs at d disposal of our traditional healers. Unfortunately becos of demand & supply today, trado-medical practioners chose to go down d inglorious route of ritual money service delivery thereby relegating d more humble & esteemable practise of treating diseasee like ebola to d back-burner. This man must be given a chance.
|Politics / Re: Amaechi And Commissioner Of Police May Clash Over Campaign. by KnowAll(m): 5:01am On Aug 16|

|Politics / Re: As Nigerians Sleep, Towns In Borno Fall To Jihadists by KnowAll(m): 10:44pm On Aug 10|

|Politics / Only Problem Is 2nd Term Govs Do Not Perform!!! by KnowAll(m): 9:52am On Aug 10|
I Congratulate Ogbeni for a job well done winning his 2nd term bid. But d only issue I have he should continue Governing with d same enthuisiam, gusto and determination. But from what we have seen sofar and d experience all around us, it would appear our 2nd term Governors just go to sleep. I hope Ogbeni would not let d good people of Osun state down going by d prevalent precedence.
Once again to Ogbeni, congrats and God bless you.
Just thinking aloud here .......................
Could it becos d twin trouble of ebola and boko haram has not being resolved that Mr President allowed d peoples vote count and d anomaly that happened in Ekiti state not allowed to see d light of day. Kudos to Mr President and INEC for allowing common sense to prevail for once.
|Politics / Re: Ebola Scare:2 Feared Dead,20 Others Hospitalised Over Excessive Salt Consumption by KnowAll(m): 2:11am On Aug 09|
At d moment Salt is Winning.
Salt v Ebola
2 - 1
Not counting Mr Sawyer's death it would appear fear of Ebola is actually killing more people than ebola herself.
|Politics / Re: If Bitten By Mosquitoes Can Ebola Be Transferred To Another Person???? by KnowAll(m): 10:59am On Aug 08|

|Politics / If Bitten By Mosquitoes Can Ebola Be Transferred To Another Person???? by KnowAll(m): 10:21am On Aug 08|
Just wondering if mosquitoes bites an infected person and d same mosquitoes goes on to sting an uneffected person can ebola be transferred to d un-effected person. Need expert advise.
|Politics / How Did The Bubonic Plague Or Black Dead Ended?????? by KnowAll(m): 9:29am On Aug 07|
Just wondering how did this plague ended considering it happened in the middle ages between 1400's to 1600's where a lot of the antibiotics and other medicines we have at our disposal today are non-existent. How did it come to an abrupt end. It must have been a miracle. Just wondering how a disease that wiped out millions could just end at her own accord. It is strange and borders immensely in the fringes of what one can term a miracle !!!
If that disease can end(Black dead or Bubonic Plague), there is no reason why ebola would not come to a logical or illogical conclusion taking into cognizance historical precedence. The big question would be at what at price in terms of human casualty. Aids took millions with her in the late 80's and early 90's, i hope we are not in for another pandemic.
|Politics / Re: Patrick Sawyer Is A Liberian Ebola Medical Terrorist, i have VIDEO evidence !!! by KnowAll(m): 6:08pm On Aug 04|

|Politics / Impeachment Season!!! Fayose Should Watch His Mouth by KnowAll(m): 7:58am On Jul 16|
Atfer a lull of about 5 years Nigerians woke up yesterday morning with d impeachment of Nyako. I would say d penchance of this rutheless way of grabbing power has become fashionable once again. In d light of this new fad in town Ayo Fayose should watch his utterances especially to APC as his new regime commencing from oct 2014 might be stiffled b4 he even start ruling by d majority of the APC members assembly.
If I were Fayose, I would watch my utterances becos I know he would not want to be d first Governor impeached twice. A word like they say is good 4 d wise.

We call it TKO
Below the belt in this context means " eh buu ara " in Yoruba which means an " obvious abuse/condemnation of one's predicament/short-comings or handicapness" it is like telling the whole world, "make them come see blind-man wey no fit see" . That is gross, below the belt.

|Sports / Re: Brazil Vs Germany: World Cup 2014 Semi-final (1 - 7) On 8th July 2014 by KnowAll(m): 9:45pm On Jul 08|
When Brazillians start leaving their country and start playing in Europe, they should know that they can never be the Brazillians we all know. What we have today is European-Brazil, hence why they are walloped by Germany. Who remember the Brazillian team of 1982 that is one the last true real Brazillian team. All home grown with spectaclar skills.
I thought the Brazillian economy is bigger than the UK's how come Brazillian clubs cannot keep their players at home by paying top dollars $$$$$£££ na wah oh!!!!!!
|Politics / Re: I’m Ready For PDP Forces – Aregbesola by KnowAll(m): 12:23pm On Jul 07|
Ogbeni means - "Mr Man" , Aregbesola surely belongs to the street, an Ajebuta man like Omisore cannot take Ogbeni's coveted crown. He is the emperor in Osun State.

|Politics / I Think I Prefer The Name Naijiria To Nigeria What Is Your Take???? by KnowAll(m): 2:47pm On Jul 06|
Most African languages spell words the way they are pronounced hence that is why our youths prefer to call Nigeria - Naija. Rather than choose the short version of this cool name, why don't we just change the spelling of present Nigeria to Naijiria, I think it is much better than that stupiiiid word some folks is recommending that sounds like "Air-gun" abi wetin be that ye-ye name again.
Cote' voire did it a couple of years back, when she announced to the world she would like to be known henceforth as her french spelling in all conferences and official gatherings involving the country, and since then the world seems to have adhered to it except probanly in the UK where they still call her the " Ivory Coast " . Nigeria has being confused with Niger Republic several times in the past, even to the extent that the Nigerien National Anthem has been played as the Nigerian national Anthem.
To avoid this confusion in future we should adhere to spelling our country the "African way" rather than the anglicized way. Also River Niger should be re-named and spelt as river Naija instead of Niger.
what is your take on this ladies and gentlemen.
