Something is certainly wrong with Nigeria Systems!
Not necessarily a Nigerian problem . . . happens gloabally. Read about ENRON and Arthur Andersen (the predecessor of Accenture) . . . even KPMG had a recent scandal in the U.K earlier this year., as well as were fingered in corruption cases in South Africa.

Lol Tinubu decamp APC ? Seems you don’t know who they call Jagaban. So if he decamp APC will they give him ticket in PDP? Or you think he is the type that will use anger to lose the target like Ibos? You think he’s like people that act before thinking?
We Yorubas are second fiddle to no one and we don’t run from challenges. The Tinubu block will contest the APC primaries and I haven’t seen who will outsmart them from the ticket.
If you don’t know, Tinubu got a fair share of state Governors in the North on his side and trust me it will be a game of money bag.
Ibos on the other hand are too coward to even speak to PDP to give them the ticket. Even Peter Obi is nowhere to be found and they are all doing like minority tribe.
Leave APC and go to where? PDP? Or you think he will form a merger with Accord party? Lol you don’t know Tinubu.
I dare say Yorubas, and indeed the entire South are lucky to have a Tinubu. The mere fact that we have someone that is a formidable enough character to raise a few northern pulses is ok by me. Forget this whole SW, SE, and SS arguments - if we play our cards right collectively, we can take our dues, and decide how to split later. The miracle of 'One North' championed by Ahmadu Bello, and Tafawa Balewa is what has helped the North thus far. They have Hausas, Fulanis, Kanuris, Beroms etc, but somehow have managed to hold sway over national politics, and we are fighting over less than major tribes (yoruba, igbo, ijaw, itsekiri, urhobo, Ibibio etc) down south?
We are supposedly the educated ones, and yet we tend towards playing politics with emotions?

And that’s why they ll remain at the back and shout marginalisation from generation to generation.
There is no way a Yoruba man who had worked so hard for APC ll allow one fool from the East to reap from where Igbos didn’t sow. When Igbos were practically calling APC all sort of names in the East and went ahead to vote against APC in thousands, it was Yorubas and the North who stood for APC, now you want APC to give Igbos presidency slot, you guys are fools.
The only opportunity Igbos have to choose one of them to become the president of this country is giving their support to the Yoruba man Tinubu who would likely win 2023 election. Subsequently it ll be difficult for Yoruba people to come out and present a candidate again when it is South time to produce a president. Consequently Yorubas ll have no other choice than to support the Igbos against the North then.
If Igbos go against the Yorubas now, then be prepared that Yorubas have always done better than the Igbos, Yorubas ll definitely retaliate and Igbos ll scream blue murder when that time comes cos they always play victims.
One good thing about the Yorubas is this, they don’t play victim like Igbos. Yorubas ll move easily but ll ensure Igbos remain 4th class citizens
Tinubu is very likely not running for President . . . there is a bigger game-plan.

To the poster 2 steps above me Tinubu is from Iragbiji in Osun State ,A cousin to Oyetola the current Governor , naturally where a qualified person comes from should not be an issue but I think it has become an issue because the states that allow other states to get key positions don't get same opportunity in States the appointees come from. But I still personally support merit over state of origin.
Not holding brief for Tinubu, but if indeed He is from Iragbiji, how did He manage to grow up in the household of Alhaji Tinubu, and the Iya-Oloja, and even get claimed by them as their child?

I once told my dad: you guys got multiple jobs to choose from, got housing and healthcare but all we got is the INTERNET and nothing else.
Speaking of multipe jobs, a lot of ojr parents got through life with sheer determinstion. Most folks here that their parents are civil servants shoild ask them what their earnings are - barely 200k at the most senior levels yet they managed to build houses and send their kids to school. Most homes had just a 504 (if at all they had any car) and 2 car housegolds were seen as very well off.
The issue is that there is a lot more to consume now than back then - smartphones, DSTV, internet bundles, nicer cars, vacations etc.
| Family / Re: Older Nigerian Men How Did You Survive Nigeria In Your 20s by Bagehot: 8:17am On Sep 16|
No matter how you look at it, they had it so much better... Waayyy better.
Nothing depressing about it.
Yes they lived through the military era and saw firsthand what that was like, but it was still a better deal than what we have now.
Nigeria/Nigerians didn't have such a bad rep in the eyes of the world back then.
And who told you there were no jobs?
Just having a university degree guaranteed you a job without the need for man-know-man or bribing your way into federal agencies.
My dad with his University of Ibadan 2'2 degree didn't stay without work for up to 3 months after serving – got a really good job for that matter.
Nigerians could travel easier back then and even though the standard of living wasn't all that high, things were affordable in comparison.
Today, the standard of living is low (even lower if we're being honest), yet commodities aren't that affordable.
The internet age, satellite TV, and advent of mobile devices which ushered in the era of remote jobs and internet-based sources of income, also came with the introduction of make-believe lifestyles from watching reality shows like MTV cribs, KUWTK, etc...
Young Nigerians became obsessed with living wealthy lifestyles and acquiring expensive things (even when unnecessary).
Please there's no comparison to be made...
Older Nigerians definitely had a much better Nigeria than we do now. It wasn't heaven then, but it still wasn't as hellish as it is now.
People actually lived in Nigeria back then, but what people are doing now is surviving – there's a big difference.
I can't even take my car to a random mechanic to fix for me because they will bill me like a yahoo boy.
Internet fraudsters who don't mind paying whatever price they're told to pay for anything, have succeeded in contributing to inflation.
All those overpriced estates in places like Lekki built on top of reclaimed land that is just hoping/praying the sea doesn't develop mood swing, do you think if they were not seeing people to buy them, they won't drop the prices?
My brother, the overall mentality of Nigerians is very different now from what it was then.
Although it's not that the country was European-standard for older Nigerians back in the day, but contentment seemed to be more prevalent as people were okay with just having the basics/having just what was necessary.
I have a lot more I could type on this topic, but I've exceeded my social media allocated time for today.
I grew up under millitary rule, and trust me, Nigerians have it much better now. Economically, job opportunities were far and few between - and there certainly was still a lot of man know man. There was a lot of insecurity and (non-political) assassinations were rampant. Social mobility was pretty difficult. The government frequently sponsored cultists to kill and maim student activists on campus. Random people were disappeared, and we couldn't mention Abacha's name out loud on our own front porch. Covol Servants earned bloody peanuts, and we all stood in long queues at NITEL to make phonecalls.
Nigeria's name was bad even back then: the country was a transit hub for drug smuggling (aided by the millitary regime) - google Gloria Okon. If you think Yahoo boys are new, then clearly you are too young to remember the glory days of Goddy Anabor, Anajemba, Ade Bendel etc.

| Politics / Re: VAT: Lagos Applies To Join Rivers As Respondents In FIRS Appeal by Bagehot: 8:55am On Sep 11|
HOW THE SOUTHERN VAMPIRES SUCK THE NORTH DRY
Banks run over a dozen of financial facilities from loans to cash transfer. Each facility generates billions for the bank owners.
Northerners with a population of about 140 million do not own a single bank in Nigeria, except for some tiny community banks.
Daily, about 20 million Northerners do bank transfer through some of the big commercial banks that belong to Southerners and each one of them is now charged 20 naira.
20 × 20 million = 400 million. This is the amount Northerners give to Southerners daily on just a single type of bank transaction out of many. In a month it means 4 billion × 29 = 116000000000 (116.billion). In a year it translates into 116000000000 × 12 = 1392000000000 (1.392 trillion).
1.392 trillion the north is giving to the south every year is enough to:
1- 2,784,000 low cost houses each year at unit cost of 5 million.
2- 1,392,000 village schools each year at unit cost of 10 million.
3- 13,920 small scale industries each year at unit cost of 100 million.
4- Give 50,000 Naira scholarship to 2,784,000 students yearly.
You can think of other projects the amount Northerners are wasting on the Southerners for a single bank facility called mobile transfer and do the maths.
Now come to think of it how much money move from the North to South for the entire banking services. It is estimated to be over 13 trillion which more than double the entire federal budgetary allocation given to the North.
That is just the banking sector. Similar humongous losses are registered in other sectors such as telecommunications, insurance, education, trade, etc This is not an issue for individuals or groups to tackle. It is a political economic issue calling for political decision and action. It is the core reason the North is economically backward. Northern poverty is a direct result, mainly, of lack control of financial and natural resource. Northerners must call for restructuring for direct control of trade, manufacturing and the service industry. Forget about the false Southern propaganda that Northerners are lazy. Millions of Northerner wake up at 4 am and work their bones tired to 8pm and beyond making very little. Their resources have been taken over and only political action can restore them.
The Southern Nigerians have taken political action to stop herders and Ruga project, they took political action to take over trade by demolishing markets owned by Northerners in the South, they took political action to stunt Northern transport business through officially encouraging violent taut action, they took poitical action to demoralized Northerners via massive media stereotype and false propaganda etc
This is the reason those Southern leeches exploiting the North as bankers, transporters, counterfeit goods traders, school owners, estate prospectors, contractors, kidnapping and terrorist sponsors do not wish to leave the North or have Nigeria broken up as oppose to their ignorant tribesmen agitating for break up. These leeches when they talk about restructuring, they mean more political concession and control is to be given to them to permanently dominate the economic life of Northerners

Two sides to the experience . . .you get more respect from people around you, but you also see a lot of your peers avoiding you - especially if you are a bit well off, and also have status (career growth, etc). You would likely experience people declining your invitation to hang out, or even a couple of people who would feebly reach out, and cease communications afterward.
Just money is fine: people tend to believe they are one 'contract' or winning bet away from having money . . . but money and status together are a bit hard to swallow, cos if they are your peers, they are forced to assess their own conditions, probably feel ashamed, and probably loath you for it.

bro, the problem here is that you are thinking like a broke person. a good woman who doesnt respect you as a poor man, will still NOT respect you as a rich man. money does not equate to respect....only broke begging deluded people suddenly respect you when you have money BECAUSE THEY NOW WANT YOU TO HELP THEM. its only oloshos that will suddenly admire you because you have money AND its only broke minded men that believe that when they get money they will settle with all the oloshos in the world.
just because many women in Nigeria are broke deluded beings (who sell themselves to the highest bidder), doesnt mean that this what you should now use as a tool to value life... IF A WOMAN DOESNT VALUE YOU AS A POOR MAN, THEN SHE HAS NO BUSINESS BEING IN YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU FINALLY MAKE MONEY. if you decide to be with such woman then the joke is on you.
the sad statement you made that "if you dont have money you are nothing" is such a clueless statement, but then again, thats what most broke minded people would say...they really believe that all their problems lies with having money. all their lives revolves around money and they actually believe that if they are ugly, then with money attracting oloshos to their sorry lives, they will now become beautiful..if they are rude they will become nice, if they are bad they will become good; if they are evil they will become saints; if they are disgusting they will become sweet abi?!?!? sadly, let me help you on the subject...if you are a shitty poor person, you will simply turn into a rich SHITTY person... attracting shittier person in your life (like oloshos).
as for your family, if having money is the only way that they will respect you, then i feel sorry for the family you got. as for a wife, if she wouldnt respect you if you were broke, then the joke is on you for marrying such worthless good for nothing disrespectful wife.
BTW go ask Steve Jobs, TB Joshua etc if all their Billions (who gave them access to the very best health care), made any difference....
1. Most women change after marriage . . . so if she tells you she doesn't care before marriage - while she does mean it at that point, she would change her mind afterward.
2. Finance is the single biggest cause of divorces globally. Emotions aside, no family would run on a chewing stick - you need money. Before we all transitioned into a modern society, all across the world - even here in Africa, we recognized the importance of a man providing for his family, hence the deep shame Okonkwo (Things Fall Apart) felt, and associated with his father being fed by a woman. There is virtually no culture in the world that does not assign the role of provider to the man.
3. Even in the Bible, we are told that a man unable to provide for his family is worse than an infidel. The problem of many of us is that we have come to normalize living in want and penury. A classic case in point - most Igbo men giving up their youth to face their hustle, so they can later be able to provide a fairly comfortable life for their family. A lot of Nigerians on the other hand would simply chant 'e go better' and mess up their lives.
4. So to justify one's own ego of being a 'Family Man', One should go and marry into penury, raise his Kids in abject lack, deny them of quality nutrition and education, and a safe environment to grow and thrive in? Makes no sense. I'm not saying be a rich man, but at least be able to comfortably feed at least two mouths, before dabbling in it.
