Kano state with kwankwosiya movement can dethrone anybody.

Lol! It's the people of Kano. Although kwankwaso is s powerful, he can't do poo if his candidate Is corrupt, he will be sack. I has happened before to him.
Didn't pmb get all the votes in Kano, is he not on ganduje's side today?
Right now, the deputy government and a commissioner has been arrested for trying to manipulate result.

Forget, if you're not from Kano you'll not understand Kano politics.

Career / Re: Why Is This So Rampant In Nigeria Today? by blackjack21(m): 5:48pm On Mar 02

You have a point, but I won't use the word "most". There are people that go to school for honest purposes, to accomplish things in life, but the bad thing is with the system.. Education system here in Nigeria is not encouraging compared to what we have in developed countries

Well, what word would you use?
Career / Re: Why Is This So Rampant In Nigeria Today? by blackjack21(m): 11:10pm On Mar 01
Why is it that most graduates in Nigeria end up getting a job in a field that is not related to what they studied in school?

You see someone who has a Bachelors in Engineering working in a bank as a funds transfer staff, someone who studied Accounting is out there working in an oil firm, someone who studied Anatomy is out there working as a CSR in a hotel, a Political Science graduate is out there seeking employment in multi-national companies, and all that.

Why is it so rampant in Nigeria Please share your story with us.

Most people in Nigeria don't go to school to follow
accomplishment, in the world, in their field of study, they want money. Their priorities are messed.

The others? I don't know.

Travel / Re: A Nairalander Shares Overnight Camping At Lufasi Park Lekki by blackjack21(m): 11:39pm On Feb 28
Once again I teamed up with my good friend Koyejo Sofoluwe(@KINGFISHEREcHo) and a group of tourists for an overnight camping experience at Lufasi Park. We had our last overnight camping experience at Enukunmi Eleko Beach, you can read more about it here https://www.nairaland.com/4943290/nairalander-shares-overnight-beach-camping

This time around it was Lufasi Park. A brief history; Lufasi stands Lekki Urban Forest and Animal Sanctuary Initiative. Lufasi was founded on the 4th January 2013, by Mr. Desmond Majekodunmi as a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to actively participate in the protection and preservation of natural habitats in urban areas as well as to play an active role in the realization of sustainable development programs in Nigeria.

LUFASI has pristine Forest Reserve and Nature Park that sits on 20hectres along the Lekki-Epe Expressway with a nature-themed leisure play-park and animal sanctuary.

Enough of history, now to our camping experience; the team set out for Lufasi from Alagomeji at 3:50pm. The journey was an exciting one; everyone got to introduce themselves and talk about what they do. The journey was smooth and gridlock free.

We got to Lufasi Park within an hour. We started off with a quick tour of the park. We saw the horses, donkeys, tortoise, African civet and wide variety of birds, monkeys and fresh lush vegetation. Honestly we saw a lot of animals but I cannot remember them all. After the tour, we proceeded further into the forest in picking a camp site.

On selecting a camp site, it was now time to set up tents, drop our bags, set up the camp fire and prepare dinner.

After all was said and done, it was time to get down to the business of the day. We played a lot of games, danced, sang, karaoke, ate and networked. Our facilitator also gave us a talk on the importance of spending time in the forest. Here are some of the things He said; camping in the forests helps
- Lower stress levels
- Lower blood pressure
- Increased immunity to sickness
- Increased inner peace and happiness

We all finally slept around 4am but were all up by 8am for a forest walk and forest bathing (shinrin-yoku). Forest bathing simply means taking in the forest atmosphere. After our forest bathing, we returned to our camp site to have our breakfast, played some more games, had a talk on the preservation of the ecotourism and finally decamped at 12noon.

Learning Points
- Forest camping is a fun activity and should be greatly encouraged.
- Other parks in Nigeria should also encourage overnight camping by tourists.
- Stop illicit bush burning.
- Nigeria needs to utilize her forest resources more.

I leave you with these quotes of Albert Einstein “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better”.

Let our pictures do the remaining talking.

Politics / Re: Senate President, Bukola Saraki Booed As He Leaves Kwara (Video) by blackjack21(m): 1:28pm On Feb 24

Ok, lemme give you the gist.
His father made him. His father Saraki senior was the godfather of politics in kwara for decades. He put his son- Bukola as governor there, and after the son's tenure, wanted to put his daughter there (bukola's immediate sister, same parents) Bukola said no way, he was going to put his own choice as governor there. So he went against his dad, and took the mantle of leadership from the dad. The dad formed another politocal party for his daughter to contest for governorship, but she lost. Its been unheard of that any candidate of senior Saraki would lose an election. In short, his father felt disgraced, and cursed his son that he will also be disgraced. The father died not long after, powerless.
Don't forget his father held kwara politics for decades, just like tinubu and Lagos. The father was even stronger than Tinubu in kwara.
Bukola's detractors have used his same sister to speak against him and work for the opposition, because she had gone into political oblivion after her defeat (with the new party her father created). Afterall she is also a Saraki, and will have the same respect people accord Bukola because of his father.
Kwarans are tired of the Saraki dynasty ( created by the senior saraki), as they've been ruling for decades. The man was indeed the godfather of politics in kwara, but his own son brought an end to his influence

I don't think you know what has happened in the past btw Bukola and Gbemi. Bukola destroyed her dream of becoming governor years ago. I don't think that family bond has been strong since then. Infact, she has never hidden her disdain for her brother, as most of the siblings believed he led to the demise of their father

Well, that's quite intense for them. To both Saraki and his father, good riddance to bad rubbish. sad[/s]
Politics / Re: Senate President, Bukola Saraki Booed As He Leaves Kwara (Video) by blackjack21(m): 12:14am On Feb 24

Sarakis father cursed him for betraying him. The curse reads and i quote


what did he do to incur the wrath of his pop?
Politics / Re: Senate President, Bukola Saraki Booed As He Leaves Kwara (Video) by blackjack21(m): 12:00am On Feb 24
the crowd at the end of the video all shouting Oo to ge and Ole says a lot about how unpopular Saraki has become even in Illorin.

This is how his dynasty ended. His fathers curse working exactly as pronounced

father's curse? I'm not understanding. who curse who?

Romance / Re: What Is Your Deal Breaker In A Relationship by blackjack21(m): 2:48pm On Jan 06

Thank you .
So, what is your deal breaker?
Romance / Re: What Is Your Deal Breaker In A Relationship by blackjack21(m): 5:54pm On Jan 05
Well my deal breaker in a relationship is: I can't be with a man who isn't intelligent. I'm a sapiosexual female, I can't imagine dating a man who can't hold an intellectual conversation. I even prefer when I'm the one trying to keep up.

So let's here yours

I think what you mean is; a man who isn't conversant, Right?

Intelligent is too broad a word, if its real meaning were to be dissected, finding a single human being who is unintelligent would be a holy grail, don't you agree.

On your question,
I didn't really think much about what my deal breaker should be and don't want to.
It's would just be nice to have someone to love and share something beautiful with. That simple. smiley

Practical? shocked shocked shocked Let's hope your mum is not grammar sensitive.

Looks like too many people don't know how to lie again.

FYI- A good lie is a excuse that is unravelable and would not lead to worse outcomes.

Like this one-

The Rothschild family are a bad example because they and their friends control the world monetary system. They dont have to work before they make money.


They worked to reach that level.
That's what happens when you sacrifice today for tomorrow.
