|Politics / Accountability Of Our Local Government Chairmen by Okontami: 11:23am On Jun 24|
I keep wondering what our local governments are actually doing. They get millions of Naira in allocation monthly and we seems to see very little they are doing. The local government staff seems very docile and lackadaisical. This thread is to highlight your local government and state at least what the leaders of the LG are doing to create a better Nigeria at the grass roots level. The governors and the presidency seems to take all the bashing while we ignore the guys who are supposed to do the grass root tasks. Please, this thread is to name, shame and praise the local government who have done well or done nothing. #LGChairmen-accountability .

Guys , once you are inside that plane, just accept your fate, there is nothing you can do than just getting angry and hoping that the clock will run down fast.
What about non smoking rooms? Thats the worst that can happen to you. You cant smoke in the room you have paid for??

seunlovesa: Hello house: is it possible I get my PCC @ Ibadan without travelling all the way to Alagbon, Lagos?Yes go to the Big Police station at Dugbe, Close to the rail way line. I forgot the name man. I did mine there many years ago. its where they do it. However it takes 3 days. Go with 2 passport photo and a scan copy of your International passport photopage. They will take your finger prints and ask you to come back in 2 days. They transfer docs every Wednesday to Lagos office, so the best thing for you to do is to go there right now or tomorrow morning so they can get it for you on or before Friday. The police there are very friendly , so no hassle.

tosyne2much: And as for you referring to me as an armed robber, I wld take it as a compliment... Thanks for datHello , do you have a little challenge with comprehending. I never referred to you as an armed robber and never will I. Please read through the thread once more and edit this post please.

tosyne2much: wisely said bro.... But don't u think one needs to do away with anytn dat gives people false impression abt u... Let's accept what is wrong and stop twisting it to suit our unrighteousness and taste... Since u said tattoo and waist chain is not a bad idea.. I guess wen ur gf wants to go for an interview, you should tell ur gf to tattoo her body and wear a waist chain on the leg and expect interviewers to have a larger heart to tolerate other people's lifestyle and den wait for her employment letterI really appreciate your view once more, it is a clear view of an average Nigerian (Self righteous) , who pursue and focus on the less important things of life. We as Nigerians have been mentally brutalized and abused that we find it very difficult to accept what we consider not the norm. Presentation is important and every dressing must be aligned to the occasion. So an interview in a corporate world aligns to the corporate dressing. Nevertheless, there are other industries that your adornments and exotic dressings may match .

tosyne2much: u don't need to know my age... We al look the same thing but see it differentlyHello Tosyne , honestly the challenge most of us have is our inability to tolerate one another. If someone feels comfortable in her anklet or studs or tattoo....then so be it. Body adornment and accessories have deep and different meanings to different people. I am not saying you should change your views but have a larger heart to tolerate other people's lifestyle (Once its not a criminal lifestyle) .

tosyne2much: I dont. knw why dat is a turn off for me... No mata much I love and cherish a lady, as soon as I see her wit a chain on d leg, I keep hating on her.... About two weeks ago, I was in church wen dis lady walked in and sat beside me.. I admired her and looked at her frm head to toe, lo and behold, she wore a chain on d leg... Woooow !!! Wtf !! In d church ?, it was as if I should kick her out of d church.. Just want to know if am the only one repulsed with this kind of ladiesGuy you are the only one with your problem. What is the big deal. In fact, it is a turn on for me. I really love it. I love waist chain too. So what is your problem with accessories. May be you need to work on your self. You get EXPOSURE problem.
|Travel / Re: U.S. Non-immigrant Visas: We’re Listening by Okontami: 4:42pm On Jul 22, 2014|
abujaniv:Dear VO, consider an expatriate who have more ties to his country of operation (The country he is working) than Nigeria, what is the possibility of getting a VISA. This is the case of a lot of Nigerians working in Blue chip companies across Africa , Qatar and South America. When we apply for VISA in these countries, we are requested to come home. It should be clear that most of us have more ties to our bases than Nigeria. Our families are living with us in our operational area, major part of our salaries is paid in our operational area.

Hello VO, please for an expat who receives his salary and allowances in multiple currencies and at different periods , how will you advise him to fill the salary part of the DS160.
For example, if allowances comes in twice a year in bulk in 2 different currencies (USD and CFA) and monthly salary comes in Naira.

|Politics / Re: Obasanjo Accuses Jonathan Of Promoting Corruption by Okontami: 9:59am On Dec 11, 2013|
@Sincere Nigerian, I know you will be on this thread... Oga how market today?? Keep defending your employers..but remember that Nigerians are suffering please. Remember this.. Tell them. Dont just feed fat alone. Tell them to do what they can to reduce the poverty in this country. While you were in US, did you see the environment? Were you not impressed? Please tell them to replicate such in our country. We know you have to come here daily to defend your employers so that there can be food on your table. But please remember God is watching you if you refuse to tell them the truth about the mess they are creating. God will bless you if you stop being a sycophant , but if you continue....its otherwise. Amen In Jesus Name.

|Travel / Re: I Am A U.S. Consular Officer: Ask Me Your Visa Questions. by Okontami: 6:38pm On Sep 18, 2013|
Hello Vo, pls i have a challenge with the DS160 part for Month Salary in Local Currency: I get paid in 3 currencies. USD , NGN and CFA. My basic salary is in CFA while my monthly allowances is in NGN. My annual once off payment is in USD. These funds comes in at different period of the year. My monthly salary is the basic and not a true representation of my actual income. What should i do? Should I add these 3 monies together and divide by 12 or just convert the CFA to Naira since i will be coming back to Nigeria to apply. Even though I have a resident permit and work permit as an expat where I am . Am so so confused.
|Business / Re: Harvard Business Article Praising Dangote's Oil Refinery by Okontami: 1:15pm On Sep 13, 2013|
F*uck this report. Nonsense write up by a re*tard. So what if the economic power is in the hand of one man. If the churches prefer to build prayer camps with the free monies they are getting instead of investing in the economyetc and the other rich Nigerians prefer to buy houses in Florida and Miami instead of investing in sectors crying for investments,,,then the man that choose to take up the risk should be encouraged. Dangote pick it up and buy the Nigeria railway corporation and fix it. We need people with brains to invest in the economy...
|Politics / Re: Why Are Workers Of Government Corporations So Rude? by Okontami: 1:08pm On Sep 13, 2013|
I really wonder why a lot of these government corporations cant be privatized . Even the local governments should be privatized . There is no accountability. Guys just go to work in the morning and come back in the evening without really adding real value. Its so sad that there are no objective KPIs. The customer interaction is so poor. There is no sense of responsibility to the end customer. I have worked in private firms all my life and i see the way we are being driven to perform beyond our perceived ability. This is not the case in government agencies. I feel so sorry for this country. All they do is to see ways they can reap the public off, yet they will be saying the country is bad..
