Crime / Re: The Return Of One Chance Criminals In Umuahia: My Experience by wowo2: 6:43am On Oct 11
veekid:
Ehn ehn; I just wasted some seconds of my life reading this; no lesson learnt abi ayam not understanding?
Flat headz sef

Happened to me too in port harcourt on Aba road ..after the long meandering story by the supposed thief and contributions by the driver and passengers, they all agreed to go to a house nearby and share the money(apparently hundreds of thousands of dollars and pounds and naira etc belonging to the dead master of the thief). They then asked me if i agreed to the amount they were to collect (something like 20,000 pounds each or 2,000 pounds, the exact figure now eludes me), the first thing that crossed my mind was - it cant be true and if this is really true, where will i tell my family i got the money from and how is this not going to have a repercussion if I should get involved. I was not a prticularly religious fellow so forgive me for not going - is this what Jesus would have done? I went a bit blank and felt light headed but I heard myself saying i was not interested and will drop from the taxi at the next bus stop. The driver stopped the car right there and then and i was pushed out of the taxi on the highway! I walked all the way home afraid to take another taxi. When i got home, the first familiar face person by the gate i started telling the event that just happened, took over halfway and completed the story for me. I did not know it was a rampant thing...those who have ears let them hear. God keep us all.
Crime / Remembering Some Nigerians Directly Affected By The 9/11 Attack by wowo2: 7:12pm On Sep 11
Did some digging and could see some obvious Nigerians families affected by the World trade centre 9/11 names. This was truly an event that affected the whole world.

List is not conclusive and there may be others of Nigerian heritage affected - but it would be great we remeber about how connected the world is - and have their families in our thoughts and prayers.

No wahala, USA should give them their visa back and let them travel na. When they set foot in USA and immediately get arrested for solicitation of prostitution, they will have their day in court. Na so all dem dey do once they travel, first thing they want is woman company. Jobless peeps.

Depends on how he gained his british citiznship...At the moment, he is in court and guilt has not been proven. If he obtained his citizenship by naturalization, UK oficials will be watching and once he is pronounced guilty, they will officially cancel his british citizenship. Afterall he is comfortable as a Nigerian - he was not extradited to Nigeria and went there of his own accord...

Kenobus:
It is sad that Nigerians are just knowing this. We knew all along that the simplicity posture is a lie all these while. Somehow, some of us knew that GMB told us lies. Journalists intentionally hid this from the public till now. More things would be revealed. This is why GMB cant declare his assets publicly. The thing would be adjusted before it may be made public. So sad!

Am sorry, I don't think Nigeria is that advanced to work in this imagined sophisticated world where illuminati or some removed powers reign supreme

Have Nigerians been so misruled in the past that they have lost all consciousness of expectations from their government for their lives?

5 days into Buhari government, issues being discussed/written about are not his government actions or policies but puerile inconsequential stuff like - He has a multimillion dollar mansion in Asokoro, his daughter chased people out of a shop, his wife closed down her beauty salon to be first lady, his wife wore a costly watch to his inauguration.

What should Nigerians do - Ask for a new candidate and hold another election?

Jagaban for one is not going to allow anyone known to the masses into a position he can be seen to have his own following and seemingly grow wings. He will continually repress the functions and capability of his own team so that he is is the all powerful godfather. History at it always.

Why do you think what we have is quasi-progressive and not real progress...it is because the leaders are not selfless and myopic..

Politics / Re: Profiles Of Members Of Buhari's Transitional Commitee by wowo2: 5:56pm On Apr 25, 2015
tbaba1234:


Yes, but the transitional committee report will set the agenda from the beginning. And many of these names will serve as ministers or special advisers.

Ahmed Joda is a very old man so i doubt if he will be in any cabinet but he is in the league of awesome Northern Nigerians like Prof . Jega (pardon my being sectional) and a host of other people with high integrity. As an ardent newspaper-reading young boy I remember him for always being on the side of truth in the dark days of the military.

He would of course not want to serve any further term after doing the dirty job that the northern political establishment asked him to do. He has simply succeeded in midwifing nigeria into a possible intractable crisis.

whose puppet was he when he was head of inec and GEJ won the presidential election in 2011. ...park well

I doubt that he wouldn't perform but I don't see him accepting such a job anyway. He is a Political Science teacher and his integrity notwithstanding, am sure the jobs he takes outside of teaching and research environment are in related fields of political science. Jega has always been my hero as I followed his role as ASUU chair in the 90s reading newspapers everyday even though I was young and just becoming lucid back then.

Reuben Abati i learn will not open his mouth to utter lies about Buhari after Buhari took him to court for maligning his person. GEJ etc saved his neck by begging Buhari to withdraw his suits...but in this age of technology where your computer and internet provider fingerprints will identify you for forever some people still think hiding behind the computer and hosting websites with false info is the way to go grin
