|Politics / Re: 1₦ Now = $49.00 by KnowAll(m): 8:57am On Aug 30|
If I had 1 barrel of oil last month I will get $40 .
But today I will get $ 49.00 is it not common sense to tie our currency to products especially in our case in Nigeria price of a barrel of oil.
|Politics / Re: 1₦ Now = $49.00 by KnowAll(m): 8:49am On Aug 30|
How come the Ghanian cedis and the South African Rand are not fallen like Nigerian Naira. There is something fundermentally wrong with this govt and her policy.
Naira today is 1$ = 414 Naira!!!! Haba
|Politics / 1₦ Now = $49.00 by KnowAll(m): 8:36am On Aug 30|
If we have tied our currency into the price of a barrel of oil our currency will now be trading at $49.00 from a low $28.00 a year ago.

Tinapa is meant to be a shopping entretainment and tourist experience. Those that cannot get unto d shop ladder will play other roles as waiters, tour guides and shop assistant which is far more better than hawking.
|Politics / Re: Tinubu ” Has Never Kept His Words” – Rotimi Akeredolu by KnowAll(m): 5:28pm On Aug 27|
Aketi has never lost a dime in politics. Meanwhile Tinubu lost millions backing Aketi. No one backs a dying horse to win a race. So Mr Aketi should just hold his fire.
|Politics / Re: Cross River To Legalise Street Hawking by KnowAll(m): 4:07am On Aug 26|
Then what happens to d billions wasted in building Tinapa. If everyone were to hawk nobody will hire those shops and d government will obviously have poured water down a draining pipe. If this bill see d light of day then common road side stall will find it difficult to operate.

Seems we now condone and encourage fornication in Nigeria when we should be bringing out a bigger bu-la-la?? I suppose in Nigeria today people are honoured for decadence, d other day a drug dealer executed in Indonesia was given a hero's burial in Anambra state.
|Politics / Re: Ejitayo Jegede Celebrates His Win On The Street (Photos) by KnowAll(m): 11:32pm On Aug 22|
On a theoretical sense Jegede should win. Because d 2 biggest towns in Ondo State , Ondo & Akure are in d central zone . While Jegede is from Akure , Mimiko is from Ondo town. Does that transfer into victory I will say no on a personal note because Mimiko has being an abysmal failure.
I might be wrong thus.

A warning to other Governors who would rather spend d people's money on frivolity than pay the workers / cum Pensioners their salaries or pension to take note.
Even d Good Book says ( the holy bible says a worker is worthy of his pay ) So Governors pay your workers. It is better to sack your workers and have a lean force than have a huge civil servants without paying them.
By not paying them u are opening yourselves to unmeasurable cause from d victims.
|Career / Re: Mr Kora(lebanese) Of Bougain Viilla Hotel GRA PH Slaving Nigerians by KnowAll(m): 7:42pm On Aug 20|
If he is getting $8000 a month in England that salary attracts a 40 % tax . Nigeria Government should do the necessary by collecting their 40 % tax. Unfortunately I know Nigeria is a generous country he is probably taken d whole lot free.
Secondly, who owns d hotel? It is obsene to pay an expatriate that kind of money when there are many graduates that can do d job for less or better still head-hunt good Nigerian Managers from places like Eko HolI day Inn or Transcorp Nicolas Noga in Abuja.

|Politics / Re: Airforce Expecting 12 Attack Helicopter Gunships from Russia by KnowAll(m): 3:46pm On Aug 19|
THIS HELIPCOPTER AT $45 MILLION DOLLARS A PIECE IS CHEAP FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. But this goverement would rather spend money on a POINTLESS jamboree looking for oil in the Lake Chad and Benue trough costing the tax payers some $500 million dollars. That amount will buy 10 of these beast and no nation in Africa will be able to touch us, if we can buy 10 more of these wonderful machines .
I hope they find that oil or else, I no go talk wetin I go do

If I call u mumu now, dem go ban me. angry
Just because you can't make a dime during this economic crisis does not mean other people are not making a killing. Even Nigeria as a nation the money shared in July 2016 is unprecedented it surpasses any amount shared when oil was trading at $120.00 per gallon. The simple reasons why there is an upsurge in govt takings is because of the stringet measures President Buhari has put in place. Measures such as the single treasury account , to nipping in the bud ghost workers plus the added zeal and enthusiasm in the fight against corruption.

|Politics / Re: Nigeria Will Soon Overtake South Africa As Largest Economy In Africa – FG by KnowAll(m): 9:36am On Aug 19|
True that we would soon overtake them if we have not already. Because what u pay for petrol at December 2015 is not what u pay now. So despite devaluation the Naira generated into d coffers of government is more than what it was in December 2015.
I remember my pastor David Oyedopo said something that made me start thinking, he said his church was richer, more resourceful now that d exchange rate was 1 to 160 then than when it was 1 to 1 in the d early 1980's.
So devaluation is not d end of d world.

|Politics / Re: Appeal Court,ikpeazu In Fresh Trouble Supreme Court by KnowAll(m): 9:22am On Aug 19|
The Court of Apeal has knowingly or unknowingly set up some sort of procedural precedence that would almost be difficult for d Supreme Court to divulged from. The Supreme Court is a traditional Court it would almost always want to take d stance of proceedings adopted in d Court of Apeal except in very rare circumstances.
The Supreme Court would certainly want most cases to end in d Court of Apeal without subverting or compromising that Court's authority. Except in very high profile poltical cases where d Supreme Court had to reluctantly over turned d decision of d Court of Apeal. The Court of Apeal during d Gubernatorial proceedings in d South-South exhibited and pandered to sentimentality.
Those cases like d Gubernatorial elections of d South-South Governors. These decisions were based on a balanice of probability not circumstantial and definitely not based on sentimentality. Every Tom and Dick and even Harry knew d PDP was very strong in d South-South so it would have being inconcievable , foolhardy and judicial recklessness for d Supreme Court to toe d line of partisanship in face of glaring public knowledge.
The APC would have needed to come out with a prima facia case or a smoking gun for d Supreme Court to back them. Circumstantial or hearsay would not hold water. Especially not in d face of an outright boycott in election proceedings by APC in Rivers state.
|Business / Re: Nigeria Still Number One Economy In Africa – KPMG by KnowAll(m): 8:43am On Aug 19|
I think I agree with KPMG on this one. The GDP in Nigeria would have gone up even though we have devaluation. The Naira receipts in d coffers of government has gone up as d price of petrol within Nigeria has gone up from N86.00 to N145.00 so this will in way cushion the impact of d devaluation.
Goods and services has also gone up so is tax recipets from d FIRS. So KPMG can't be too far from d truth.

|Politics / Re: Ikpeazu Wins At The Appeal Court, Uche Ogah Heads To Supreme Court by KnowAll(m): 3:04pm On Aug 18|
That was what I was going to ask as it seems that the main appeal has not been overturned. What seems to be overturned was the issue of the certificate or return. I'm no Lawyer but that's how I see it. If the main judgement removing Ikpeazu has not yet been overruled, then there is nothing for Ikpeazus supporters to rejoice about
The court appeal can only look at a case from judgments, rulings and prouncement of a high court judge. "Since the High Court Judge in question " has turn the law on its head" by listening and dabbling into a case that he is not enpowered to revisit after given a judgment, it bolds well for the Apeal Court to leave the determination of the substantive suit to the Court of last resort which is th Supreme Court, assuming the Court of Apeal was the Court of last resort the substantive case would surely take a looking at.
|Politics / Re: Ikpeazu Wins At The Appeal Court, Uche Ogah Heads To Supreme Court by KnowAll(m): 2:53pm On Aug 18|
Many OVI haters are already on their way to the emergency room from heart-attack!! I TOLD THEM THAT THEY SHOULD ADVICE UCHE TO FACE HIS EFCC CASES AND STOP WASTING MONEY, THEY WERE CALLING ME NAMES AND ABUSING ME. I WARNED UCHE TO DESIST FROM WASTING HIS MONEY BECAUSE HE WILL END UP LIKE EMEKA OFFOR --- BROKE LIKE A CHURCH RAT. cool cool cool cool cool cool cool
It is not over untill the fat lady sings so they say. The substantive case has not being heard hence sheath your celebrative swords until the final judgement in the Supreme Court has being made. Be rest assured the Supreme Court will look at all aspects of the case especially the substantive issue of fraud and if Mr Ikpeazu is found wanton he would be sacked. So make una go pray hard.
|Politics / Re: Ikpeazu Wins At The Appeal Court, Uche Ogah Heads To Supreme Court by KnowAll(m): 2:39pm On Aug 18|
The substantive issues in the case might be dealt with in the Supreme Court provided there are no infringement in law processes.
|Politics / Re: Ikpeazu Wins At The Appeal Court, Uche Ogah Heads To Supreme Court by KnowAll(m): 2:36pm On Aug 18|
you should have wait for the Main Appeal before Praising Ikpeazu's Lawyers cos Ogah Has Won.
I am not saying Mr Orgah cannot win, what I am saying the Court of Apeal might or might not want to deal with the substantive issues in the case since we have 2 conflicting ruling from the same judge albeit one of the ruling is " illegal ".
|Politics / Re: Ikpeazu Wins At The Appeal Court, Uche Ogah Heads To Supreme Court by KnowAll(m): 2:33pm On Aug 18|
stop Fooling urself .....Ogah has Won the Main Appeal .
Except if the judges in the Apeal Court want to look at the substantive issues in d suit. BUT as it stands Judge Abang has damage the case by given 2 different rulings even though the second rulling is " illegal ".
|Politics / Re: Ikpeazu Wins At The Appeal Court, Uche Ogah Heads To Supreme Court by KnowAll(m): 2:24pm On Aug 18|
But then law is built on foundational Issues. If the foundation of a case is damage there is no remedy. Ikpeazu's lawyer's might have deliberatly lure Judge Abang into his waterloo knowing fully well that he did not have the right to hear the case. Judge Abang on the other hand fell for the bait. Kudo's to Ikpeazu's legal team for a job well done.
|Politics / Re: Ikpeazu Wins At The Appeal Court, Uche Ogah Heads To Supreme Court by KnowAll(m): 2:19pm On Aug 18|
Ikpeazu only legally won what was illegally give to him by Judge Abang. " A stay of execution " . The Appeal Court is sayinng that " Stay of Execution " given to Ikpeazu was wrong as he(Judge Abang does not have the right to give a stay of execution once a final judgement has being determined) by him 2 weeks earlier. Judge Abang by granting Ikpeazu a " stay of execution " Judge Abang is in effect nullifying his own earlier judgment of cancelling Ikpeazu's election.
In a layman's parlance is like the proverbial speaking out of both sides of one's mouth. I think Judge Abang by over-ruling his earlier judgment by granting an illegal " stay of execution " has more or less damage the case of Mr Orgar. it is fair to say Ikpeazu should have a smooth sailing from now except if the Apeal Court Judges look at the substantive issues of the case.

|Politics / Re: Tunji Abayomi Writes Tinubu Again- SaharaReporters by KnowAll(m): 11:11pm On Aug 17|
A broke ass Nig*a cannot become Governor in Nigeria d earlier u get that into your thick skull d better it would be for u. Already all d Ward Chairmen have all endorsed Olusegun Abrahams. So what are we talking about. The primaries is a formality or perhaps could be a lucky break for whoever comes second just like our frind in Kogi State outside of that d powers will be have already decided and concluded d elections. If u like knack your head on d wall that would not stop Jagaban's candidate clinching d nominat ion.
On a personal note I will not spend a kobo in Nigerian election especially Gubernatorial without an endoresent from a God Father.
|Politics / Re: Tunji Abayomi Writes Tinubu Again- SaharaReporters by KnowAll(m): 10:46pm On Aug 17|
I am not supporting Jagaban. It is foolish to take on an elephant when u are an ant. Nigeria politics is about money any wonder why Donald Trump would wish our kind of polticis can be played in America where d outcome of an election has being concluded b4 voting even starts and d spoils of war already divided by actors and d gladiators. Unfortunately that is who we are in Nigeria and how we play it.
|Politics / Re: Tunji Abayomi Writes Tinubu Again- SaharaReporters by KnowAll(m): 10:11pm On Aug 17|
Abayomi's head has dropped in boxing parlance the final nail acknowledging his powerlessness was his submissions that Tinubu is one of d kindest " big men" that listens. When u know his a big man why spoil for a fight??.?
|Politics / Re: Tunji Abayomi Writes Tinubu Again- SaharaReporters by KnowAll(m): 7:09pm On Aug 17|
The bottom line is Tunji Abayomi is powerless, helpless and moneyless. There are times when a bigger man step on you u , u take 5 steps backwards and realise u are no match for that person. I think it has begin to dawn on Mr Abayomi.

Tunji Abayomi is a man that has being dribbled mercilessly who has come to realise that jagaban cannot be held down. Jagaban is as slippery as a cat fish. You cannot put him in a pigeon hole or tag him with an undue-influence tab. At d same time Mr Abayomi has not got d clout, influence, or magic to win all those ward Chairmen, assuming Mr Abayomi has deep pockets he would haver fought Jagaban to a stand still.
But as it stands that is wishful thinking, helpless and hapless Mr Abayomi can only take solace in his little academic achievements his wish and his wishe's if only they horses begger's will ride would be for d Ward Chairmen to equate his academic successes to d deep pocket jagaban possess.
What a wonderful wish that would be, Mr Abayomi has being randomly beaten to a stupor d only thing he can salvage from d little altication ( I am actually looking deep into MR Abayami's thought process) is to establish some semblance of normalcy without outrightly begging Jagaban.
