Who is sponsoring these bills should be stoned. They are tightening the noose on the common man. After all these realized are systematically looted by mindless poly-thieves. I do not support these regulations at all. Taxes should be imposed on high transactions among the elite. Anything that makes things more difficult for a 30k wager is not acceptable.

No be every topic you go comment. Allow people who are vast on the subject to talk.
You have been disgracing yourself here daily by saying nothing but God bless Buhari which adds nothing to intellectual discuss.

Even if them dey pay you as NL rep, you should present reasonable arguments in support of our government not been overtly over simplistic without relevance and blocking useful space even when you don't have an iota of idea about the topic. sad

Good reforms. But what do our government use the revenue for? To improve on their corruption and embezzlement?

MZrapper:

Some people ask; where are the achievements?
Well, if they are of such mindset, unfortunately they can't be helped.
We don't have the authority to mix spittle with clay, put on their eyes, and direct them to go to Siloam pool, wash, and come back seeing.
Once anybody decides to be willfully blind, no matter what you push in front of his eyes, he wouldn't see.
If he decides to be willfully deaf, even if there are thunder peals by his ears, he won't hear
.
The blind claim not to know.
Good luck to them.
Those who know, really know.
And they are the millions who will stand by the President any day, any time....like Yours Truly.
Strides in security, agriculture, anti-corruption, infrastructure, and many others are evident.
When they drive on Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, Aba Port Harcourt Expressway, and hear that early works on the Second Niger Bridge have reached about 45% completion,
and still refuse to believe, what then can anybody still do?
But thankfully, those who believe far out number the inveterate, wailing, blind cynics.



SAY NO MORE............

Here you have it!
