Politics / Why Exactly Was The FRSC Commander Removed? by booblacain(m): 12:23pm On Nov 14
I was analyzing the issue of the removal of the FRSC Kwara state Commander, Mr. Frederick Ogidan, and I am wondering what exactly he did wrong.

I understand and agree that one should not criticize an organization or a government that one works for in public. If you want to criticize your employer in public, you should at least resign first; that I agree with to some extent. But I am looking at Mr. Ogidan's case and wondering, did he really criticize the federal government?

The quote below is what he said, as reported by the Daily Trust:

"The subsidy removal has increased our budget and limited our movements, which has affected our operations."

"However, the good story is that the issue is already getting attention and a necessary response from the headquarters. Very soon, we are expecting an increase in our finances following the assurance from the Corp Marshal, Dauda Ali Biu," he added.

So where exactly in the above statement was criticism made? He simply made a statement that everybody is already aware of, or are they just angry with him for reminding us about it like we have already forgotten? Even the supporters of this government, especially proponents of subsidy removal, all speak of and have spoken about this same subsidy reality. So, what exactly made Mr. Ogidan's comment different? Was there a secular passed among government workers telling them not to say anything at all about subsidy, whether good, bad, or neutral? Was it the way he said it, or was it by whom it was said?

Please, if there is anyone that sees the criticism or something at least wrong in what he said, point it out and correct me. I may have missed it somehow.

I mean, the man even went ahead to say that yes, things are tough now but it will eventually get better. Is that not the same statement that most supporters of this government and even the government itself has been making, so why was this different?

Honestly, I can't understand the federal government's action on this matter. To me, this action says two things: one is that this government is on a mouth-gagging overdrive on its people, and two, the government is too ashamed of its policies, especially on subsidy, that they will allow nobody to talk about them at all.

It's sad.

Politics / You Are A Dim Witted Joke To These People. by booblacain(m): 2:28pm On Nov 03
“The reason why we did not choose Nigerian-made cars is because they don’t manufacture their vehicles, but they assemble them.

“I prefer Nigerian-made products, but the Nigerian car companies are only buying the vehicle parts and assembling them here.

He maintained that the reason for the SUVs is because most Nigerian roads are not motorable, adding that these vehicles are the only ones that could help them carry out their oversight functions.
.... Chief whip of the Senate, Ali Ndume

See the kinds of excuse that someone is giving, as if he is speaking to dim witted people.

So because a vehicle is assembled in Nigeria, it automatically becomes invalid and unusable. How many of those countries which you import your cars from actually manufacture all their parts themselves.

Can you imagine a senator blatantly telling Nigerians that fixing bad roads is not their priorities, but buying cars that will fly over the bad roads is.

Politics / This Was Their Darling Daddy, Front Leader. by booblacain(m): 7:11am On Nov 03
“In Buhari’s government, if you don’t go and meet him, for the next four years, he probably would not ask of you.

“Every Wednesday, people bring their memos and they are debated and all of that but in terms of policy formulation and supervision, we rarely did have such things...

...... former Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu

This is the same person that they said he will lead from the front. The same person they were boasting that he has done it before, he will do it again.

This is the same person some persons were blindly and selfishly calling their "darling" daddy and even without shame are doing same to this current president.

Breeze don dey blow.

Business / Please, How Do I Make Dollar Payments Online? by booblacain(m): 10:59am On Nov 02
How do you guys make international dollar transactions online since naira debit cards have been stopped from doing so? Gtbank is asking me to get a dom account with a dollar Mastercard. I will need 2 references that own current accounts with the Gtbank and I don't have those now.

Any suggestion on alternative methods to make dollar payments online these days?

Politics / Seyi Tinubu, FEC And Supporters by booblacain(m): 8:53pm On Oct 31
The funny but really sad thing about the Seyi Tinubu and FEC issue is that if Tinubu himself had not rightly spoken against that action by his son and the news of him attending that meeting had somehow leaked into the press. Tinubu's supporters would have been coming out with every excuses and unbelievable reasons why he has the right to be in that meeting and why it should not be condemned. To them Tinubu and his family is more important to Nigeria than its institutions. The saddest thing is that these kind of mindset is not found amongst Tinubu's supporters only, it seems to be across board. Only very selfish and wicked people think this way.

Anyways, kudos to Tinubu for speaking out against such overstepping by his son. Flying the presidential private jet to go watch a game should equally be condemned.

The day Nigerians start respecting institutions over mere mortals whose lives are as fleeting as a fart, that is when the country will be ready for growth.

In a democratic setting, you do not need to have a meaningful goal or plan for the people, you just need to have the right supporters. With the right supporters you can get away with almost anything.

I fit bet my life say this idiot nor know say "gay" get other meanings. Is this what they're paying you people billions of naira to legislate?? Wtf?

I was waiting for this statement. I knew someone will come up with this excuse. Infact, people like you is exactly why the word was used that way in the book, so that it can be defended with the excuse that it means something else. If you believe that there is no other agenda behind that particular word being used, regardless of any other meaning it may have, then I am not sorry to say that some mothers really do have them.

There's enough space to accommodate you and your brothers and sisters in the East. You may all relocate there. After all, y'all brag about taking your investments back home.

This should be a no brianer. Go home.

Do I look like a give a shit about your opinion or that of any other iboe around here? Once it is Lagos or any other parts of the west y'all come out barring all fangs. The same was said to be in the offing in Anambra and other parts of that blighted landscape, but just like the bald witch called Ezekwesili, y'all lost your voices. Not a single grunt was uttered.

You lot think too highly of yourselves. You've gotta take a rain check sometimes and tell yourselves the truth. Oh, sorry, to do that, one has to be human first. My bad.

Now you can crawl the Bleep on. I'm sure your kind, other iboes, are waiting for you down the line. Cheers.

See how hate and unbridled emotion just made you embarrass yourself.
