|Politics / Re: Wow! The Youngest Nigerian Presidential Aspirant Ever by KnowAll(m): 12:42pm On Nov 22|
His age has already disqualified him. I doubt whether this guy is up to 40 years. Our constituion stipulates that a would be President should be or have attained d age of 40. Sorry mate, u have some grow up to achieve b4 running 4 d Presidency.

Everthing na politics. Lobby d Republicans properly and b4 long d weapons would turn up in our door step. Don't forget right wing American Politicians hates any islamic terrorist in whatever ramifications especially after 9-11.
Lobby d widows & Widowers of 9-11 emphasasing on d fact that Boko Haram left to flourish would be tantamount to more Mutallabs hiding explosives in their under pants. American may well be at d reciving end of this attack if Boko Haram is left to fallow.
|Politics / Re: Speaker Of Ekiti State House Of Assembly Impeached By Seven PDP Lawmakers by KnowAll(m): 12:06pm On Nov 17|
I wish d judges can be given d power to pass a judgement of public flogging on eering politicians. These 7 legislators need to be thought one or 2 things about democracy by way of public flogging.
These legislators know what they are doing is illegal and d worse that would happen is d Judge would pass a judgment of return to status quo.

|Politics / Re: Breaking: 7PDP Ekiti House Of Assembly member sitting to Impeach Speaker by KnowAll(m): 11:21am On Nov 17|
Why can't d rule of law be enforced in Nigeria. If we don't want democracy we should just invite d military to take over. This nonsense happened in Ogun State during Gbenga Daniel's tenure. What is wrong with us. How can 7 men impeached a speaker in 28 member house of assembly. !!!
Instead of a minority powered Governor to treat d legislators with caution & reverence he is trying to enforce his will on grown-up adults. What kind of country is Nigeria.
I don tire 4 all these nonsense.

|Politics / Re: Soldiers Reclaim Seized Chibok Town by KnowAll(m): 10:22am On Nov 16|
Only for them to lose it in another few days. The problem is we do not have the personnel to hold recovered Towns. I was Watching Al-jazeera yesterday and some analyst said the Iraqi Army needs about 80,000 troops to hold Towns and territories recovered from ISIS. Do we have 80,000 troops to hold all the areas in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa State.
If NO is the Answer, then this victory would be a hollow victory. It would not worth the paper it is written on!!!!

|Politics / We can get American Weapons?????? but we must know Whats-Up??? by KnowAll(m): 7:13pm On Nov 14|
We are going about procuring leathel weapons from d US d wrong way. When Yardua was dying in a Saudi Hospital, lobbying those that matters was what broke d camels back. I learnt from realiable source brown envelopes where exchnged with those who held power in d US.
One ex president was given $250,000 so was one former British Premier. What transpired after these under hand dealings was d current President of d US called Saudi Arabia King informing him d US would break all trade and diplomatic relations with her if that dying Nig?er is not sent packing.
The Saudis value their relationship with d US than some alimanjeri from Northern Nigeria. That was how our dying President was sent packing and of course u all know what transpired thereafter.
So this issue of acquring arms from d US must be done with dexterity, craftiness, and a bit of guile. The Republicans control d Senate & Reps now, we have men who can finance this covert operation b4 long Obama would be telling us to pick whatever arms we want.
Haba, jonathan u fall my hand oh!!!!
|Politics / Re: Oshiomhole To Jonathan: You Have No Scorecard To Show Nigerians by KnowAll(m): 5:01pm On Nov 13|
Mr Governor must first of all go down low by sorting d roads in GRA Benin city. As far as we are concerned & know d roads in Abuja and especially roads within Aso Rock pricint are in prime condition need I say more.
If d poshest neigbourhood roads in Benin are in a terrible state what are we to expect from d rest of d state. Mr Governor has gone to sleep in his 2nd term.

|Politics / Re: Thinking Men As Governors In Times Of Dwindling Revenue??? by KnowAll(m): 1:59pm On Nov 09|
Fayose is not a thinking man. I pray he would be d last delusional Governor ever elected in Nigeria. What d faccccckkkkk is stomach infrastruture. He as inherited a proper Governor'S Residence, he does not have to build another one. Instead of him to provide insightful projects he his busy witch hunting his predecessor. Ekiti is on a long thing for d next 4 years.

Ekiti former Governor Fayemi said a pieace of land bought and built on by Adebayo in 1999 that cost d N700 millin then is now worth N4.5 BILLION Today. THat was a piece of good investment by an insightful man. I believe many of such examples abounds d polity.
|Politics / Thinking Men As Governors In Times Of Dwindling Revenue??? by KnowAll(m): 1:25pm On Nov 09|
It is high time Nigerian electorates elect thinking men & women in time of dwindling revenue from d centre. Men & women who would invest 1 Naira to make 100 Naira. Men & women that would think out of d box. Men & Women who would take unconventional but legal ways of increasing d revenue in-flow to d states.
Nigerians by now should be tired of these men & women parading themselves as Governors commissioning one phantom project in other to enrich themselves.
Some ideas that came to my mind includes d following amongst others:
1. Invest in buying prime lands in choice areas in Lagos and Abuja build beautiful apartments and rent them out to expertriates or high net Nigerians.
2. Invest in propertise in choice areas in London, Paris, New York, if they can buy outright d better. The income from d rents would be in £$ € this revenue stream would go a long way not only increasing d foreign exchange capability of d nation but that of d state e.g Saudi Arabia, Qatar and some Arabian countries are well known good investors in London's prime estates. So it is not ßomething new.
3. Mechanised industrial farming with d sole aim of marketing produce both in Nigeria, Africa and d world at large this would also go a long way of enhancing d foreign exchange capabilties of d state. Afterall Cocoa was used to build Cocoa house in Ibadan, Western Nigeria Television Authority. That same revenue stream was also used to build University of Ife, now Obafemi Awolowo University ile-ife.
4. Building of toll roads amongst other high yielding infrastruture facilities like d once touted Lagos Metro project or under-ground train station would be a welcome idea.
5. Building houses, low, medium and high income bracket houses and sell to d public in form of a mortgage.
6. More suggestions needed!

Devalution of d Naira meant Dangote shares has taken a serious battering. Don't forget Nigeria stock exhange index has recorded an all time low in past few days thereby making Dangote,Otedola and any other listed billionare's fortune to dwindle.

Buhari has been collecting $ estaco in 1977 when our dear Jonathan dey look 4 money to go buy bathroom slippers.

That kind thing fit make man vez not to work again now. So I understand Buhari's beef against jonathan.

|Politics / Re: Federal Government's Urgent Attention Needed On Ikorodu-shagam Expressway.(Pics) by KnowAll(m): 8:32pm On Nov 05|
Is it not high time Federal Goveremnt hands all those roads to the state Goverments, clearly their eyes in Abuja cannot see what is happening in Lagos / Ogun Border. And I can bet this is not the only terrible road in the country. The country is overwhealmed with bad roads from the SW to the NE and from the NW to the SE. It is high time the federal Goverment relinquishes about 10% of the money accrued to her, to the states.
The situation as it were cannot continue. Something must be done!

But in d years to come we would start seeing Senators more powerful than Governors. The reason being many former Governors are going to d Senater therby leaving their stooges to run their states. For example now would anyone of u say Governor Abdul fatah of Kwara State is stronger & more powerful than Bukola Saraki.

|Politics / Re: I Don't Believe In Local Govt. Autonomy - LCDA Chairman by KnowAll(m): 10:34am On Oct 24|
The issue of LG Autonomy borders on what is called " Federating Units" we cannot possibly have 477 federating units. It is understandable to have 36 federating units but not 477. LG Autonomy is dead on arrival. After LG Autonomy d next autonomy would be "Ward Autonomy" and after that "street Autonomy, where would this madness end. Presumably family or Home Autonomy.
I have even forgotten that we once had Kalakuta Republic in Surulere Lagos.
|Politics / Re: National Assembly Okays Autonomy For Local Governments by KnowAll(m): 12:28pm On Oct 22|
State Houses would not support this move. It would mean even LG Chairmen would have more clout than state legislature. Dead on arrival I would say.
