|Ladies Tokunbo Pants (okrika Pata) by luckiest: 2:54am On Apr 08, 2009|
I wonder what gave ladies the notion that used pants are better than new one, and how on earth can someone wear a pant already worn by unknown person; this is crazy. I was walking past yaba and I couldn't believe my eyes about the rush for foreign used pants for ladies; could this be poverty or stupidity, because the former owner culd have one tough disease and they will pass it around easily; oyinbo disease don they catch us so we have to be wary of how we go about what we wear, because we cannot continue to use poverty as excuse. I heard in the past that some white people injected used clothes with deadly diseases to reduce black race; how government should do something about this, because the rate at wish used clothes are imported into the country; someone will say we don't manufacture them, but I don't believe it takes rocket science to make them; ha ba common pant we no fit do

Not everybody is as lucky and can afford new cloths as you,if you really want to make a difference why not use your pay check for the next six months on buying up new cloths from any department store then ship it to Nigeria, since you care so much about people contracting the white man's disease from the second hand clothing.
True it's risky buying used cloths but i would think if it's properly washed with a household detergent and tried it should be ok.

arrant nonsense!!!! , which government has time to buy or formulate and manufacture chemicals to use for that purpose? awon oyinbo o ri tiyin ro oh
i see your point , but understand that in most cases those 2nd hand goods were meant for the poorest of the poor in countries where they are exported to, but some greedy people hoping to make fast bucks divert them to be sold .
am sure if there is no demand or market for it, buying okrika pata in the market will disappear.
and also understand that here they have agencies like salvation army where people donate such goods to be given to the poor or sold and the money will be used for the poor etc and thrift shops selling 2nd hand goods for those who wanna buy them exist

About the comment about sanitary pads, that's a bit of an exaggeration don't you think??
Anyone with choices and option would not opt to use used pants. Do we mean panties or trousers?? Trousers is understandle, panties indicates that the person is actually in real nead of anything they are offered.
Used pants, hmmm!! I just pray that the person doesn't need to rely on this as a long-term solution. Not all of us can afford brand new things, when a human being is willing to jeopardise their health for things like this, we can either conclude that they are really disadvantaged financially, or they aren't that educated about the diseases you can catch from improperly handled used intimate wear.

am not surprised maybe you think am very rish or earn good salary that is why I think its a bad idea to wear this things but the truth is that we have to be careful because some of this cloth we don't know their origin and when I said in the past evil have been done using clothes, ask any south african or visit this weblink http://mediafilter.org/caq/caq63/caq63apartheid.html
there are more of this information about the apathied regime and the chemical warfare on the web; all am saying the government should try to support cloth makers or whatever they call them; what does it really take to make a simple T-Shirt or even the so-called pant locally; as far as I know it doesn't take rocket science; support the local guy and ban the importation equation balance provided the government ensure that it is affordable over a period of say 10 year when we could have gotten used to using home made new pant

The funny thing about all these okrika madness is that we have many qualified tailors in nigeria that we would easily make one for you.

|Re: Ladies Tokunbo Pants (okrika Pata) by Nobody: 11:24pm On Apr 09, 2009|
i said this in a previous thread of the same nature. . .
everybody's tokunbo starts from somewhere
some na kangaroo briefs
some na timbaland boots
some na rangerover SUV
some na gulfstream jet
some na NITEL company
abegi. . .break out the dettol/bleach/ariel and carry go!
while i have been fortunate enough to have the resources to buy brand new briefs, i have rocked how them call am. . .'lightly used' shoes.
plus in naija it is sometimes better to buy the authentic tokunbo , rather than the brand new fake
and finally, i'm sure we are all aware that so many of our clothing retailers are selling us lightly used clothes as new.
anyhow. . .
|Re: Ladies Tokunbo Pants (okrika Pata) by luckiest: 11:48pm On Apr 09, 2009|
I know people will disagree with me but who says Aba made items are not good, most of the new so-called Italian Jeans in most of our boutique are actually made somewhere in Aba, so why can't we just rebrand them and say Made in Aba or Naija, since we all know where it is made. So if we can make jeans how much more common pant; if we don't start we can never get it right, our great fashion people can actually design pant and with support from the government it could be sold for as low as 200 naira, so that this oyinbo people go keep their pant for their pikin. Taiwan started like Aba today and with support from government and people, they are one of the best; don't lets attack ourselves, we can contribute to the change; lets talk to our government we can get it right

i fink its d beleive dat oyibo tins are better dan anytin else.
|Re: Ladies Tokunbo Pants (okrika Pata) by luckiest: 7:28pm On Apr 24, 2009|
I understand the view of most people; it is not as if I really want to bring down those people who cannot afford new wears but we as a nation must do something about it; let us put how trained tailors to the test for at least 3 years and see if they cannot perform
