No one says he has not done anything in lagos state. It's the way and manners he has carried on in administring lagos that was in dispute. Besides most of the projects mentioned were done to enrich himself. You need to understand how project were awarded under ambode. No competitive open bidding process. You were charging companies in Lagos to pay taxes, yet they could not vide for jobs as the only approving authority is ambode. That's not how to run a state. Even the so called PPP, was largely funded by the state, where was the investors contribution. A lot is wrong with ambode style. I think he was more consumed by greed ote author=adaweezy post=71622375]Lagosians want Ambode.

I am Lagos born and bred. A son of the soil. Tell your Lord that his time is up in Lagos. People are not blind. Tinubu will be taken to the cleaners. It's the beginning of his end as the Barton is about to be passed to another generation. Ambode is a performer. Even the blind could feel it.
|Re: Lagos 2019: Ambode Dares Tinubu, Says I Won't Step Down by AlhajaChinyere: 10:58am On Sep 29, 2018|
Ok, your fvck ups will be severely dealt with....just watch.
You are NOT and will never be a lagosian, never!
Ben Bruce went to his home state Bayelsa for political post. Now Pat Utomi has gone to Delta to run for governorship. You think they are fools? Despite spending most of their lives in Lagos with much to show for it.
Oga go and identity your state of origin and get your yam leg out if my yoruba land.

Are you sane at all. Ambode is a native of Epe, Lagos. He is not like your lordship that hail from Osun and fraudently turn himself to a Capone in Lagos.

The SW don't care if they are being played. They are only supporting Buhari because it gives them the closest shot at presidency in 2023. Tinubu will then be the head of the cabal cos if PYB wins he will just be a figure head

Madam (or is it chief?),calm down. Do you remember Senator Grace Folasade Bent? Yes, she's Yoruba, but became a Senator in Adamawa State (Google it).
Now that is Adamawa, a non-cosmopolitan state and certainly not a former FCT like Lagos that the national government developed. In spite of these facts, be sincere, can any non-Yoruba emerge as a Senator in Lagos?
Nope, he will be likely be told to go to his home state, no matter the affiliation with Lagos. Utomi and Bruce did the right thing. I would too if I was in their shoes, especially knowing that in ethnically fragile country like Nigeria, only their homeland will appreciate their effort more.
I know non-yoruba and non-APC HOA members from Festac area only won because of the makeup of the voting population there. Yet people like you call fellow Nigerians in their own country "foreigners."
Someday things will change and the constitution will be amended. Parties like APC cannot be registered as one, people like Buhari cannot emerge as president, and people like you will be irrelevant in serious political discourse.
Change is constant. QED.

Ambode should fight on, but in doing that, he must ensure there z no skeleton in his cupboard or else he would be threatened with impeachment which might take him off the battle ring.

BlastAfonja:You are informed.
The fools think we are fools like that. Look at Ibadan the then Pride of WA, we left the city for them they couldn't sustain the development now allowing the glorious city to sink into a rusty republic.
All those fools shouting Lagos, Lagos, go to the same lagos, an average igbo family lives in a better accommodation than theirs.
In spite of the war that destroyed Enugu to the ground, Enugu was named in the first batch of the top 100 most resilient cities in the world the same day and time Barcelona, Paris, London, Athens e.t.c were named. Only 35 global cities made the first batch.
The Ambode they are insulting used Enugu's model to get Lagos included but a typical afonja known for dirtiness couldn't sustain that, the following year, that Lagos was named a mega city of slum.
If Ndi Igbo leave Lagos for them again and move to Ekiti, Lagos would sink into the same pitiable state as Ibadan.

Please leave tinubu out of this and mention ambode's achievement. We are not talking about politics of bitterness and envy here. You can go do that in your ipod republic. When you lots are faced with issues that require common sense, you will always approach it with useless sentiments, envy and bitterness. Everything to you must be about tinubu. Did he kill your parents?

Good evening fellow Nlders. I hope we all had a great day?
Doctors in the house, most especially the gynaecologists, I really need your guidance on this matter. I have a sister that has been battling with something in these past few days.
It happened like this; three weeks ago, she told me she was feeling somehow and doesn't understand how her body is feeling. She finished her menstruation a week before and she started seeing blood coming out of her private part like she's menstruating again after 4days of finishing the menstruation and it lasted for about five days. We checked online for what could be responsible and all we could see are symptoms of pregnancy. In order to be sure, she did pregnancy test and the result came out negative, so she buried the thought since the blood had stopped coming.
Now another issue; She was supposed to have seen her menses around 22nd of September, but has not come up till this moment, this had caused another serious of worries for her. To crown the whole matter, she said her breast is getting fuller. She did another pregnancy test with PT strips, the result still came out negative, both urine and blood.
Now she's really scared of what could be going on. She's thinking of going to see the gynaecologist next week, but for now I won't let her hurt herself so much with so many thoughts because of this matter.
Please what could be wrong? Could it be pregnancy or what medical explanation can be given to this......
