Politics / Re: USA Minimum Wage Vs Nigeria Minimum Wage. by ziccoit: 6:07pm On Sep 15, 2013
0lumide: I'll say this. I can feed my self with 250 naira per day in Nigeria. that is $1.50 That poo can't feed an insect in UK, Canada or US or any European country sef.

So why the comparison?

I opened a small time business in NY after school. I had access to some native fishermen who supply sea food to me at a very low cost. I was running this business and making some bucks until some Jewish mobsters bullied me into selling my business. I still get 10% but that's peanuts compared to what I get when i was managing my own business. The native fishermen stopped supplying to the mega company because they said it's against their native laws to desecrate their waters to earn money. Hence why they were only supplying small timers like me. The Jewish community is buying up majority of small businesses in NYC and the world will call that what? Just a hint of what's going on over there.

I came back to Nigeria feeling broken for two months. After two months, I found another trade that pays way better. I calculated my expenses in US (I'm still a bachelor) and Nigeria, I figured apart from the everyday hassle Nigeria has because of lack of infrastructures, Nigeria is way more affordable and enjoyable than the US.

Even though we have bad government, the people are making it work for themselves very well.

My friend Obinna in the US is also planning on removing his ties with the US, he was born and raised there. Used to be scared of Nigeria until I showed him how well Nigerians are doing as fresh graduates with ideas not job seekers. US is a nation where government decides national interest and the government is tooo damn powerful even to Americans. Nigerians going to the US, unless you can't get loan to start up in Nigeria, you can go there to hustle for a year or two, your main goal should be establishing in Nigeria.

No Nigerian born of woman can come and tell me to sell him or her my source of livelihood in my Lasgidi. We go die there!!!!!!!!!!! Use all your government might in 9ja, I will get support from Oba of Lagos as a sure boi and even get my area bois to disturb you. grin grin grin Just kidding but seriously no one in 9ja wants to forcefully buy businesses.

Before reading your comment:
Come home and I bet you can not live on 2500 Naira per day. Except if you drop from planet pluto and you don't get family to feed.

After reading:
Are you still "boboing" us that u are living on N250?


Politics / Re: USA Minimum Wage Vs Nigeria Minimum Wage. by ziccoit: 4:16pm On Sep 15, 2013
Your per hour work in Nigeria worths more than $10 yet you get $0.6!

With $10/hr in America you can rent a good house, eat good food and have access to every good things of life within a reasonable limit. Are these apply in Nigeria?

Thinking that @OP is totally wrong is being stupidly patriotic.

Nigerians certainly deserve the hardships they are subjected to by their rulers.

Car Talk / Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by ziccoit: 10:51pm On Sep 13, 2013

Sorry my dear, i have been so busy for a while now, at the same time enjoying my new found love with my smooth riding second baby, benz c180 revamp , i just stumble here this night to see this wonderful thread gone this far. Anyways, it looks like Zim Drill has said it all

Welcome Mr au.hanson. We missed you. Waiting you bring for the boys now? grin

Now that you are enjoying your benz, don't forget this;


You are welcome my dear; thats exciting news, infact you've spore me to share my own testimony with you too though i was waiting to have 3 successive readings before i could come up with these, probably opening another thread for it-but let me let the cat out. However,If you remember my mpg posting and observations overtime now at one of the threads by Sienna, you would notice that i have not been so much impress by my mpg in Port Harcourt city, but that has changed stupendously now for the better.

I now achieve 20mpg in that city, its something you can hardly do with a 4 cylinder overhere (remember i use to do 13mpg, then 14mpg then 16mpg) though i could achieve 23 mpg in Calabar City. I did a some work in the performance of this old lady(w202 Benz c180) and have return it back to factory new performance/mpg; and now i can hardly stay at home at weekends and free hrs because it now drives like a good 6 cylinder machine.It's fun to always drive this ride; the lethargy underperformance of a BenzC180/BMW318 gone; even with an ac loaded over 99 percent of the time, i could almost stop and continue swiftly with gear 3 without having to downshift to gear 1 unlike before; no more strand of hesitation and underpowerlessness at hold ups etc

Boy! i've got to give this a new thread for my brothers out there to help turnout their old cars(especially Benzc180/beemer318 to new at performance/mpg dont need a new ride because of these factors, because your old car can still perform like new if not better than. See you in my new thread coming soon, let me just tidy up up some very busy schedule over here. Cheers!!

Politics / Re: CAN Gives Kwara 7-day Ultimatum To Redress Discrimination Against Christians by ziccoit: 3:42am On Sep 13, 2013
...really religion shldnt be a parameter for appointments but having said this,it is imperative to state that muslims,especially south-west muslims are always quick to argue that their people dont put religion in whatever they do!but they systematically relegate their christian brothers to the backyard in all political affairs,they critize fellow yorubas who are men of God eg TB joshua,Oyedepo,Adeboye etc at every slightest misunderstanding while always supporting and praising their muslim folks,you hardly hear them critisize yoruba sheiks,Imams or Alfas...Yoruba christians shld wake up from their slumber and see the hand-writing on the wall!There is a grand design by the political muslim class to subjugate them,watch how they muslims have dominated every aspect of the yoruba society while they the christians keep following them sheepishly under the guise of progressives.Look at lagos state,i dare a yoruba christian to vie for the governorship position or are they less intelligent,'self-deception is the worst form of deception',shine your eyes!!!APC are now gradually bringing out political actors for the next governorship election and i can tell you that almost all are muslims or are they christians in that region dumbooos without political ambition,thanks to Tinubu and his evil cohorts...christians must face reality or keep on fooling around...muslims are encouraged through their teachings to dominate their environment and must nt allow infidels(christians,atheists,Jews etc)to govern them even if life will be better under such government!so who is deceiving who?

Because churches are business centers where people go to buy and sell at exorbitant prices. They also seen more aligned with corrupt government officials who are stealing us dry.

To you it may be funny. The guy wants to buy a car and needs some advise all u can do is to discourage him. There are some cars dat actually have electrical probs.

Issues concerning golf 3 have been discussed several times on this forum. What the guy needs is to just search for "golf 3 reliability" using NL search field and you will learn a lot about the car.

Of course it does. While we're on the subject, the brakes fail, the engines are prone to catching fire, the automatic transmissions explode at highway speeds, the manual gearboxes seize up at highway speeds, the central locking malfunctions, and can lock you in, the steering wheel has been known to come off.

Please, don't buy one.

Nonsense. Why GEJ would be prevented from contesting in 2015? Must he only contest under PDP? Last time I check, there are over 40 political parties in Nigeria. Let him move to APGA, AC, NCP etc if PDP rejects him. Has he exhausted his goodlucks and ' I have no shoe' nonsenses.

Car Talk / Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by ziccoit: 7:09am On Sep 06, 2013
Such antifreeze should be nowhere near an MB.

All MB's (at least my generation and a few others before it) use hybrid based antifreeze. Total Coolant is useless and WILL damage the water pump bearings. I addition to that, it doesn't do the job well under extreme conditions. Mercedes Benz's coolant packs a lot of "punches." Expensive though! There is an alternative and approved also by Mercedes. Valvoline Zerex G05! Apparently, it is the same as the formulation for MB's cooling fluid. This is because Valvoline formulated the MB fluid. MB fitted water pumps should go-near two decades of use. This will only be achieved using the correct fluid specification. The bearings will get overstressed with the conventional antifreeze installation. Water-pump "job" is expensive and can only be done one way; the right way. Omitted precautions and cut-corners will require repeat-service(s) till it's done right.

What if Valvoline ZerexG05 and MB coolant are not available? What are the other ways out?

Welcome back to NL.

Car Talk / Re: Cotonou Car Purchase Issues. by ziccoit: 5:44am On Sep 04, 2013

So give me a very good reason why I have to go to Cotonou to buy a 1999 Camry for 850k when I can get it in Lagos for 900k. At least I get to drive it the same day if I buy in Lagos and I will also have rest of mind. Trust me 50k is not worth the stress of Cotonou. Been there done that. Sometimes u even have to wait for like a week before u get ur car, only to find out some parts are missing, fears of fake custom papers etc. And if u take out transport and hotel (if u wanna stay there to monitor the processing), then u would have exhausted the 50k. For me its waste of time and energy. Unless one is buying a very old car say like 97 models and below, cars u can't easily find in Lagos that is the only time it is advisable to go to Cotonou.

1999 toyota Camry @op mentioned did not include his commissions. Adding his commission to what you explained above can bring the landing price to close to 950k.

I also heard from the Mechanic that their parts are pretty expensive.
I prefer S40, S60 to S80, it seems to be the most problematic of the new versions.
It is the flashiest but also the gives the most headaches in my opinion

I see now that those who are against APC are not concerned with politics, governance, or policies, but only with ethnic and religious hatred. Hatred that doesn't make sense because APC is NOT a muslim party.

Here is a list of the Christian (and many Igbo) executives in APC's national party. The list includes their name, former party, state of origin, and current position in the APC national leadership. There are 35 national positions total, as you can see, 17 are occupied by Christians.

1. Otunba Niyi Adebayo, ACN, Ekiti State, APC National Vice Chairman (South-West).
2. Chief (Knight) Tom Ikimi, ACN, Edo State,APC National Vice Chairman, South/South
3. Mr. Uzo Igbonwa, ACN, Anambra State , APC Deputy National Youth Leader
4. Chief Kenneth Kobani, ACN, Rivers State, APC National Ex-Officio (South/South)
5. Mr. Antibass El-Nathan, ACN, Taraba State, APC National Ex-Officio (North- East)
6. Emma Eneuku , ANPP, Enugu State, APC National Welfare Secretary
7. Nelson Alapa, ANPP, Benue State, APC National EX-Officio (North Central)
8. James Ocholi (SAN), CPC, Kogi State, APC National Deputy Legal Adviser
9. Sharon Ikeazor, CPC, Anambra State, APC National Women Leader
10. Pastor BD Lawal, CPC Adamawa State, APC National Ex-Officio (North-East)
11. Senator Annie Okonkwo, APGA, Anambra State, APC National Deputy Chairman
12. Senator Ositsa Izunaso, APGA, Imo State, APC National Organizing Secretary
13. Sunday Chukwu, APGA, Ebonyi State, APC Deputy National Secretary
14. Dr Jok Alamba, APGA, Plateau State, APC National Ex-Officio
15. Dr Anyim Nyerere, APGA, Abia State, APC National Vice Chairman (South-East)
16. Emeka-Olisa Akamukali, DPP, Delta State, APC National Auditor
17. Sir Romanus Egbunike, DPP, Imo State, APC Deputy National Welfare Secretary

Thank you and thank you and thank you.

My predictions: GEJ will fail to secure PDP ticket for 2nd term. He will either fail or voluntarily drop the intention to rerun. The Atiku's group will go back to PDP. A Northern Muslim will clinch the PDP Presidential ticket. APC too will feed another Northern Muslim as her presidential flag bearer. The SSner and SEner will be at lost as to who to support now that their GEJ is out of the equation. Their elders would be bought and used to crumble any kind of resistant from those region youths.
If GEJ now insist on maintaining the present scenario, APC and the Nigerians will laugh last by 2015. Either way Mr GEJ is a goner.
