Why are they all from one school? if they actually qualified for anything on merit ahead of other schools and state


What technologies are they going to pitch? if they entered to participate


I believe they are simply going for an excursion, so why it's quite commendable to an extent, it is not worth berating others

I am not a tribal person

I have written that simply out of curiosity because it seems like they are not going to present anything in the exhibition, otherwise the article should have mentioned it.

Tickets are sold for such events world over and people can buy such tickets to attend as tourist. it will be great for our educational sector, if the governments officials of any state decides to sponsor students to experience such events as alleged by the article.

Maybe you should answer my question without seeing everything through a tribal viewpoint

Nigeria wins international schools debate trophy in Singapore

Nigeria has won the 2018 edition of the International Oldham Cup Debate Competition organised by the Anglo-Chinese Junior College Debate and Oratorical Society in Singapore.
Prof. Yahaya Yero, Executive Chairman, Bauchi State Universal Basic Education Board, disclosed this on Thursday in Bauchi, at a reception organised by the board for the Nigerian officials and participants at the competition.
Yero said that the participants, who represented the country in a four-day long debate were drawn from five junior secondary schools in Bauchi State.

Going by your SIGNATURE. What will you say to a person who tells you by analysis that the VERY ROOT of Nigeria's unending problems LIES is the fact that just 6 years after this supposedly GREAT COUNTRY, NIGERIA got her Independence, a COUP DOMINATED BY ,'CHRISTIAN OFFICERS' BY FACT AND TRUTH as its plotters, TRUNCATED THE FUTURE OF NIGERIA FROM ACHIEVING GREATNESS.

A coup which cost the life of Nigeria's FIRST prime minister a MUSLIM killed in cold blood, became the very beginning of Nigeria's INSTABILITY with respect to RELIGIOUS VIOLENCE.

After the failed coup by CHRISTIAN OFFICERS.

The late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu a practicing 'CHRISTIAN' and from the Eastern part of this country which is predominatly CHRISTIANS, backed by ISREAL and the VATICAN CITY and other CHRISTIAN COUNTRIES are responsible for the chaos we all are suffering today courtesy of the CIVIL WAR inspired by CHRISTIAN FANATISM on one side and SELFISH GAINS on the other side. Am trying to use your line of thinking to talk to you.


"Biafra's attempt to leave Nigeria resulted in
the Nigerian Civil War . The state was formally recognised by Gabon , Haiti , Ivory Coast ,Tanzania and Zambia . Other nations, which did not give official recognition BUT PROVIDED SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE TO BIAFRA, included Israel, France, Spain , Portugal , Norway, Rhodesia, South Africa and the Vatican City . Biafra also received aid from non-state actors , including Joint Church Aid , Holy Ghost Fathers of
Ireland, and under their direction Caritas
International, MarkPress and U.S. Catholic

JUST CHECKOUT THE LIST OF THE SPONSORS OF THE PREDOMINATLY CHRISTIAN IGBO DURING THE CIVIL WAR WHICH SUCCEEDED A FAILED DOMINANTLY CHRISTIAN MILITARY COUP THAT KILLED NIGERIA'S PRIME MINISTER THAT WAS A MUSLIM, WHEN NIGERIA WAS JUST 6 YEARS OLD AT SUCH INITIAL STATE OF FORGING THE FOUNDATION FOR THE GREATEST OF A NATION.

Well, yet still following your line of thinking as to your comment.

Assuming Nigeria's first Prime Minister was OJUKWU, and the first coup plotted was by Muslim officers from Northern Nigeria and then followed by a civil war supported by Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan and other so called MUSLIM COUNTRIES what comes to mind?!

JIHAD OF COURSE!!!

BUT HAVE YOU EVER PICTURED OUR REALITY OF THE CIVIL WAR AS CHRISTIAN FANATISM?!

This country would NOT have become a mess if the christian dominated east chose peace, UNITY and progress and NOT SELFISH ENDS.
***My point is this. We should be objective with the way we analize issues and stop all this religiousity and ethnicity that clouds our mentality from the reality of what is really going on. When Jonathan was the President of Nigeria, was it enjoying TRANQUILITY, STABILITY and SECURITY?!

It still remains HIS-STORY, story by Frederick, a point you the knowledgeable one should have grasped. So tell us a summary of HIS-STORY and how it contradicts the facts I had written. All you need do is make excerpts, THATS ALL YOU NEED DO, instead of telling me to go read a book tell us about what you have yourself read PLEASE I BEG OF YOU.

And how is Jide's story the real story?! Tell us how?

The Nigerian case is not a Mystery, but a man made Problem which solution starts with 'You' and 'I' to become HONEST and DISCIPLINED in our own Domain.

FOR EACH AND EVERYONE OF US IS A LEADER AND HAS A ROLE TO PLAY IN THE PROCESS TOWARDS ALL MANIFESTATIONS.

THERE IS DEFINATELY A ROLE WE ALL PLAY WHICH UPON OUR DECISIONS AS LEADERS, THE LIVES OF OTHERS ARE DESTROYED OR MADE TO BLOSSOM. ITS HOW THIS VORTEX WORKS, THE DYNAMICS OF INTER-DEPENDENCY AND THE TRANSMUTATION OF ROLES.

So what happened to his supporting a ' UNITED NIGERIA' to his becoming a major leader in NIGERIA'S DISTABILIZATION, an ambition which glory was quenched by the GALLANT NIGERIAN ARMY and with a Christian by the Name Yakubu Gowon as the Commander in Chief of the Armed forces.

I hope you can see that, even at that, the Commander in Chief that fought for the unity of Nigeria was a Christian.

My whole point is very simple and straightforward, UNLESS we stop being NARROW MINDED, stop being allowed to be driven by religious and ethnic sentiments but playing our roles by our pledge to be "FAITHFUL, LOYAL AND HONEST". This land of diverse BEAUTIFUL people and most populous country of the black race so blessed with brains and all that makes a great nation will remain or better say continue in the gutters of poverty, insecurity and instability. Until our psyche is changed to one of optimism and DELIBERATE actions are made by all for PEACE, PROSPERITY AND UNITY.

I was only responding to the commenter in the language that has made a mental illness of that person. TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR SELF.

And lastly, find time to read the book written by the founding father of a today classed as a first world country, Singapore. The title of the book is 'From 3rd to 1st WORLD'. Pay attention to what this great leader had to write about Nigeria and Africa as a whole. You can as well try to lay your hands on the documentary, still on Singapore title: FORGING A NATION.

OGHENAOGIE GOOD MORNING.

From Third World to First, an autobiography of the founding father of Singapore. The late Lee Kuan Yew wrote this BRUTAL TRUTH.

"On the culture of coups in the 1960s: I was not optimistic about Africa. In less than 10 years after independence in 1957, Nigeria had had a coup and Ghana a failed coup. I thought their tribal loyalties were stronger than their sense of common nationhood.

On Chief Festus, Nigeria’s finance minister, in 1966: The night before the meeting, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Belewa gave us a banquet in the hotel. Raja and I were seated opposite a hefty Nigerian, Chief Festus, their finance minister.

The conversation is still fresh in my mind. He was going to retire soon, he said. He had done enough for his country and now had to look after his business, a shoe factory.

As finance minister, he had imposed a tax on imported shoes so that Nigeria could make shoes … I went to bed that night convinced that they were a different people playing to a different set of rules.

On Krobo Edusei, Ghana’s minister for presidential affairs, in 1966: On our arrival at Accra, the person who came up to the aircraft to greet me was Krobo Edusei, the minister for presidential affairs.

He had gained notoriety as a corrupt minister who had bought himself a golden bedstead, a story much publicised in the world press …

On my second night in Accra, he took me to a nightclub in Accra. He proudly announced that he was the owner and that all VIPs would enjoy their evenings there.

MORE EQUAL

On Kamuzu Banda, Malawi’s founding father: He was quite a character, with his sunglasses even indoors and at night, and his buxom young African lady companion. He looked old but spoke with vigour, waving his fly whisk to emphasise his points. (1971 Commonwealth meeting in Singapore)

On Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia’s founding father: Prime Minister Kenneth Kaunda’s major preoccupation was politics, black versus white politics, not the economics of growth for Zambia. He remained as president until the 1990s when, to his credit, he conducted a fair election and lost.

On lavish lifestyles displayed by Third World leaders at Commonwealth meetings: All leaders were equal at the conference table, but those from heavyweight countries showed that they were more equal by arriving in big private jets, the British in their VC 10s and Comets, and the Canadians in Boeings … Those African presidents whose countries were then better off, like Kenya and Nigeria, also had special aircraft.

I wondered why they did not set out to impress the world that they were poor and in dire need of assistance."
