|Celebrities / Re: 9ice Shades Tinubu As He Throws His Support Behind Jimi Agbaje by collybright58(m): 8:01pm On Mar 09|
|Politics / Lagos State Governorship Race - Your Stake And Winner by collybright58(m): 4:51pm On Mar 09|
I cast my vote today around 12noon and I had to walk some distance before I get to my pulling unit and this is my observations.
On my way to the pulling unit I observed that all the pulling units I saw two weeks ago with many electorates willing to exercise their voting rights are now almost empty. My pulling unit is not in any way different as I spent less than ten minutes there campared to two weeks ago that I waited for like 2 hours before I was able to vote which means the turn out for the gubernatorial election is very low. I cast my vote and on my way home, in one of the pulling units INEC ad-hoc staff are cancelling the ballots papers already.
On my way home I heard two guys discussion that some people didn't come out to vote because of the results of presidential election two weeks ago. When I heard that I remember I made a comment in one of threads on this platform that with or without Igbo, APC will win Saturday governorship election...... and my reasons are as follows.
Looking at the two candidates of two prominent parties you will want to say Jimi Agbaje is the best for the job but my concerns for him is that Jimi Agbaje is not really willing to stand as major opposition in Lagos politics even if his party is either here nor there, this is what I mean Jimi Agbaje contested for the same position four years ago and after that election I have not heard Jimi Agbaje coming out to provide policy alternative to governor Ambode's policies or by providing solutions to any challenges faced by lagosians, by doing this Agbaje would have registered himself in the minds of many people so that in the election period or even APC would have also think deeply before replacing Ambode with Babajide Sanwolu, another thing that I know Agbaje is banking on is the supporters who just don't want APC, not because Ambode is not working but because they tag one man whatever name and unfortunately for majority of them were disappointed by the presidential election results and didn't come out again to vote for their preferred candidate this time.
About Babajide Sanwolu the APC gubernatorial candidate, I think his party has put him out well than any other candidates in the race, on his own part he has been going from one location to another to make sure he identifies himself with Lagos people and some time he says what he is going to do when he becomes the governor of Lagos State.
I can say it categorically that APC will win Logos gubernatorial race and it is going to be victory for all.
Lastly from the presidential election and what happened today, despite the fact that Lagos has over 5mm registered voters and substantial increase in all other states. It is the same voting population that voted in 2015 that are still voting now. INEC should start preparing for next election from now with full ELECTRONIC VOTING PROCESS in mind.
Lagos is moving forward!!
God bless Nigeria

With or without Igbo APC will win Saturday governorship election mark my words, if you decided not to vote APC because you tag one person whatever name. It is visible to the blinds and audible to the deaf that Lagos is moving forward since 1999 and I'm sure majority of you guys don't hold your governors accountable back home, we know and see what is happening from those states.

|Business / Sources Of Short Term Finances For Your Business by collybright58(m): 8:04pm On Dec 30, 2018|
One thing that set business aside is it's own existence regardless of the owners or investors. The success or otherwise of any business depends on the people who have been appointed to manage and run the day to day operations or activities of the business. There are different types sources of funds available to business and how these sources can be assessed is largely depends on how the business is positioned.
Below are sources of short term finance mostly used by business across the globe.
Short-term finance is a method used by companies to address day to day cash requirements of the business with the aim to settle within 12 months
Some of the short-term sources of financing are: Trade Credit, Unsecured Bank Loans, Bank Over-drafts, Commercial Papers, Secured Short-term loans.
Trade Credit is an agreement between buyer and a seller of goods. In this case, the buyer of the goods purchases the goods on a credit i.e. the buyer pays no cash to the seller at the time of buying the goods, only to pay at a later specified date. Trade credit is based on mutual trust that the buyer of the goods will pay the amount of cash after a specified date. For instance Purchase order, Supply Chain, Letters of Credit.
Bank Overdraft is a type of short-term credit which is offered to an individual or a business entity having a current account which is subject to the bank’s regulation. In this case, an individual or a business entity can withdraw cash more than what is present in the account. Interest is charged on the amount of over-draft which is withdrawn as a credit from the bank.
Unsecured Bank Loan is a type of credit which banks are ready to give and is payable within 12 months. The reason why it is called an unsecured bank loan is that no collateral is required by the individual or a business entity taking this loan. Examples are Cash Advance, Line of credit, Credit cards and payday loan etc

Hello everyone on NL
Please I have been trying to get some products on Alibaba.com but each time I tried to order, chat or make enquiry I receive the subject error remarks. Temporarily blocked frequently is becoming permanently blocked. I'm sending this if someone in the � can help.
It is frustrating trying to order stuff on this site. The website is not user friendly at all, customers service is non existent as well. If I can get alternative marketplace like Alibaba that works I will so much like it
Thank you in advance.

|Politics / Sen. Dino Melaiye Says Next Level Na Grave Side' On Xmas Day And Nigerians Respo by collybright58(m): 8:05am On Dec 25, 2018|
Merry Christmas and Compliment of the season to you and your family and a prosperous new year ( IJN)
Senator Dino Melaiye tweeted early hour of today a Christmas day and his message to Nigerians is 'Next Level Na grave side' Nigerians for who they are have been giving him back, left right and centre.
For me, I can see a simple survey here and the strategy that politicians have or don't have to make their candidacy appeals to the people or appall them especially this type of message on a day like Christmas.
2019 election will definitely come and go but people remains and winners and loosers will emerge. If you think senators are super humans one day people will not vote them again they will rather elect true representave to the legislative assembly because you are actually to represent them.
NL people please see Sen. Dino's tweet and peoples response below

|Business / Open Letter To CBN: Diamond Bank Takeover Is Fraudulent And Desperate Move by collybright58(m): 7:50pm On Dec 20, 2018|
I am writing this as a Nigerian and expert in business and I'm pained every time something like this is happening and unfortunately we can do little or nothing thing to avert it.
If you are interested in this matter I will like to surprise you that the whole assets of Dimond Bank across the country only worth USD200m, one wonders who did the valuation or how did the valuation was done? Diamond Bank is a quoted company that its share price has been on downward slide for some time now based on INFO that bothers on many factors but takeover with riduculous price and without giving more time for investors is questionable. Another option is to give room for counter offer. In my opinion all options have not been explored to get commensurate measure that will give value to all stakeholders
Looking at it critically as well I don't think CBN is doing enough to restore sound regulatory sanity, proper and transparent procedure should be considered and upheld with unbiased standards. I read in one of the daily when CBN governor said ' we are still looking for investors for defunct Skybank' and I'm wondering why not taking the same measure in this case of Dimond Bank. The planned takeover will make so many employees lost their jobs, assets will be exchanged with riduculous price, huge benefit to beneficiary e.t.c
AMCON is the Assets Management Company of Nigeria- The body acted as the buyer of banks for the Nigerian Government by acquiring the non-performing loans (NPL). I ask: why is AMCON not come to the rescue of this bank at this time and manage the whole process for stability so that many employees who are on the verge of loosing their jobs will be avoided, unless if it does not matter to regulators
Access Bank will be feeling cool at moment for being a beneficiary of faulty takeover arrangements, the same thing happened the last time where Access Bank allegedly owed Intercontinental Bank over N16b naira and the takeover agreement then was around USD50b Naira. The same thing is happening again now. And another issue that came with Intercontinental Bank takeover was the way Intercontinental Bank staff were treated. Those employees are the one that can tell the story.
CBN governor Mr Godwin Emefiele please revisit and review this issues so that more Nigerians will have confidence in the institution and system. You will write your name in the sand of of time if proper things are done properly.
Thank you in anticipation
|Sports / José Mourinho Sacked By Manchester United After Defeat At Liverpool by collybright58(m): 11:02am On Dec 18, 2018|
Manchester United have sacked José Mourinho following Sunday’s defeat at Liverpool, ending a tenure that began in May 2016.
A poor start to the Premier League season has seen United slip 19 points behind the leaders, Liverpool, and fall off the pace in the hunt for a top-four place. They have won only once in six league matches, drawing during that sequence with struggling Southampton and Crystal Palace.
Even a José Mourinho gripped by defensive dogma was better than this | Jonathan Wilson
Relations between the manager and the executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, also seemed strained after the club did not sign a central defender this summer. The club concluded that of the players in that position targeted by Mourinho whom they could potentially land, none was an upgrade on the existing squad.

|Politics / 2019: INEC Signs Mou With NURTW, NARTO For Effective Logistics by collybright58(m): 9:23pm On Dec 12, 2018|
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday in Abuja signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with transport unions for efficient logistics in the 2019 general election.
News men gathered that the unions who signed the MoU are- National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO).
The Road Transport Employees Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) is yet to sign the MoU, as INEC Director of Voter Education and Publicity, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi said there are issues needed to be addressed before the agreement can be signed.
INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, described the signing of the MoU as another giant step in the commission’s preparations for the 2019 general election as one of the critical challenges to the conduct of election in Nigeria is logistics.
Yakubu said the commission required over 100,000 vehicles to deploy personnel and materials from state offices to 774 Local Government Areas (LGAs) 8,809 electoral wards and 119,973 polling units, which he described as a huge undertaking.
“In order to achieve this commitment, INEC requires over 100,000 vehicles. The logistical requirements are beyond the internal resources of INEC.
“It is for this reason that the Commission has been in partnership with NURTW for which an MOU was first signed with the union in January 2015.
“However, with the increase in the number of voters as well as political parties since the last General Election, we need to increase the pool of our service providers to meet the consequential increase in the number of vehicles.
“Accordingly, we decided to expand our collaboration beyond the NURTW,’’ he said.
Yakubu called on national leaders of the unions to supervise their members and branches for the full implementation of the MoU by working closely with INEC Resident Electoral Commissioners to ensure that the objectives were fully realised.
“We will also require you to swear to an oath of neutrality as your participation in the delivery of electoral logistics requires absolute neutrality and impartiality.
“The security agencies shall escort all vehicles to locations. In addition, we shall track the movement of all vehicles electronically and real time, as we did in some recent elections,’’ he said.
Yakubu assured Nigerians that INEC was determined that all polling units nationwide would open at 8 a.m., saying the commission was determined to give Nigerians a pleasant voting experience in 2019.
“We have been working hard to ensure that personnel and materials will be on location awaiting the arrival of voters rather than the other way round,’’ he said.
Yakubu appealed to the unions’ leaders to ensure that there was no failure on their part, especially when it is too late for the Commission to make alternative arrangement on the eve of election.
INEC Chairman signing MoU for logistics deployment for 2019 general elections, on Wednesday in Abuja
“While we appeal to political actors to call their supporters to order, I wish to assure you that we will continue to work with the security agencies to ensure the safety of your members and your vehicles,’’ he said.
Speaking on the MoU, the Chief Technical Adviser to INEC Chairman, Mr Bolade Eyinla, said that the MoU empowered the leadership of the unions to supervise and monitor their members.
“We have built in this new MOU some administrative responsibilities. The new MOU ensures that we will certify the quality of the vehicles to be used on Election Day so they meet the required safety standard,” he said.
Eyinla advised all parties to the MOU to abide by the regulations spelt out in it, by ensuring that the required vehicles were assembled at required locations at stated time.
The National President NURTW, Alhaji Najeem Yasin, pledged that the union would contribute its quota to ensure the success of 2019 general election.
“I will like to assure INEC that in 2019 we will do our best than what we did in 2015,’’ he said.he National President, NARTO, Dr Kashim Bataiya, also pledged that the association would carry out its assigned duty effectively as stated in the MoU.
“We will do everything possible to carry out our duty effectively for the deployment of personnel and materials and other logistics for the elections,” he said.
The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, pledged that commission would work with INEC in the area of certification of vehicles to be deployed for the election.
Oyeyemi represented by FRSC Assistant Corp Marshal, Victor Nwoko said that the Corps would do more than it has been doing in collaboration with INEC, to ensure success of 2019 general election.(NAN)

I'm sure you aware of number of states and local government Boko Haran was occupied before the current administration and you cannot deny the fact about progress made by the administration. Do not also forget that this is not conventional war, our army cannot be 'all knowing' and because of years of neglect our army lack required weapons. For you to know that the efforts of this administration has yielded fruit it may not be as expected but more than previous administration.
