Many that attended or still attend OAU (including my humble self) chose to go there because somebody in the family was there (father, mother, brother etc). Now as okija don see good school, am sure we will see his aburos and younger friends go there..

|Travel / Re: Visitors From Nigeria To UK To Pay £3000 Bond Before Entry by wowo2: 10:32pm On Jun 23, 2013|
how much is 3000 pounds that desperate people can not get from illegal means like yahoo yahoo...
If they want people to go to uk and leave, they should promise interest on the bond and many people will be going and coming....that way uk economy will also grow because they spend money on shopping...
|Politics / Re: Patience - Port-Harcourt Lost Its Attraction In Amaechi's Reign by wowo2: 12:54pm On Jun 16, 2013|
oh yes, we loved being in port harcourt during the reign of Peter Odili when PH was so much fun. How the cult boys used to display around town killing and maiming in the hotspots of the city...guns could go off anywhere at any time... how i loved the day that ocada man took me on that short cut via sangana. Not left out were areas that were not directly affected but the machete wielding boys at night in rumuola made sure visitors to the city were amused. Silly woman.
|Politics / Re: El-Rufai Can't Find Jobs For His Daughters by wowo2: 9:47am On May 24, 2013|
It is a major time bomb truly. All those that think it is a joke are either still in school or are of school age but not attending school.
Irrespective of El-rufai's ideology, unemployment is a major issue in Nigeria that is being swept under the carpet...
|Politics / Re: Michael Adeboloja 'Mujahid' - One Of Woolwich Attackers Is A British-Nigerian? by wowo2: 9:39am On May 23, 2013|
One of the killers was ranting about his country being left alone by the west ors something...which country? I think this individuals are plain confused childish minds. Although no one can say he knows how to raise perfect children but methinks children in diaspora need to be allowed to fully appreciate and understand their origin...and not think they are alone or different and the world is against them...

i hear there are many who don't show for census...the Councillor is councillor to everyone, those with pali and those without. Jokes aside, maybe he meant to say there are 1million Nigerians in the UK - london and outside london.

|Politics / Re: Documentary On Poverty And Corruption In Nigeria by wowo2: 12:18pm On Apr 14, 2013|
This is very good...We need people to connect the dots and let the citizens and especially the leaders/rulers see the cause and effect relationship of corruption and poverty.

Nigerians need to properly educate themselves of Nigeria's history and correctly identify its issues and their causes. So that when the wind of change blows (my prayer it does soon), innocent people are not wrongfully judged...
|Politics / Re: Reaction To Alamieyeseigha’s Pardon Is ‘Sophisticated Ignorance’ - Abati by wowo2: 12:30pm On Mar 17, 2013|
The war on corruption in government is so feeble and has only managed to convict a handful. It is very puerile and there is just no sane excuse for the government to pardon Alamieyeseigha. This just emboldens those stealing government funds...very disgraceful.
|Politics / Re: Alamieyeseigha's Pardon: Jonathan Owes Nobody Apology - Okupe by wowo2: 1:00pm On Mar 13, 2013|
Alams is now pardoned. For all his sufferings, GEJ should send him on holiday to the UK where he can be a guest of Her Majesty....it will be a very long and memorable holiday...

Some people see and hear about this and are thinking of things they can do to change the situation - unfortunate thing is when they start to harbor thoughts of how they can also make small money (GEJ mentality), the devil and mammon will prove again that it is one. We never forget Kenny Martins, OBJ's in-law with the Police Equipment Foundation and the tens of billions of Naira that grew legs and then wings...na today

Northerners or no Northerners, my guy GEJ you are O.Y.O.
Afterall, unlike Obama you don't wake up each day thinking about how to positively affect the life of the masses by improving the economy (healthcare, infrastructure, security etc) but that of your immediate friends/praise singers and their families.
|Health / Re: Iwu, Others Breakthrough In HIV/AIDS Treatment by wowo2: 11:09am On Jan 05, 2013|
The drug being touted is not an anti-HIV drug but one used for the treatment of diarrhea associated with anti-HIV drugs.
Prof Iwu has had controversies trailing him in the academia before he even became Electoral Umpire...This does not preclude the fact that he could be a good research scientist.

|Politics / Re: Jonathan: Our Greatest Challenge Is Our Attitutude Not Corruption. by wowo2: 9:39pm On Dec 30, 2012|
A few years ago when Nigerians were said to be the happiest people on earth, the Nigerian leaders were busy siphoning money away...
Now Nigeria does not feature in the top of the list of happy nations, the leaders are not only still chopping the money, but are now abusing Nigerians for not smiling anymore.
|Politics / Re: Describe Nigeria In Few Sentences........... by wowo2: 7:04pm On Dec 30, 2012|
