Politics / Re: Godwin Emefiele Resumes Duty After Annual Leave by Cotton(m): 12:32pm On Jan 17, 2023
ImDStar:
Look at the way APC is running this country, Buhari said old age as limited his performance as President, yet you think we should give another older person to continue from where Buhari stopped?

The must funny thing, majority of APC supporters are really suffering. For your own sake, vote Peter Obi.
If they are suffering, allow them. You think you are the sole custodian of knowledge, bad mouthing anyone for their choice of President. We, that support APC know why we are supporting that party. We know what Nigeria suffered under PDP rule and suffered to rescue this country from the hands of the PDP. We can also see the giant strides the nation has taken in the last eight years. yes there is insecurity, inflation and other social ills but we are addressing them with time. We know our problems and the solution but most of you young people believe that the fortunes of a country can be changed in 4 or 8 years. No it can't but most of y'all are too ignorant to possess vision. You can't describe colours to a blind man. Now we have Peter Obi, a core PDP member who was shafted and decided to cross carpet in order to achieve his ambition. Most of you believe that when he becomes President he will wave a magic wand and everybody will be rich. The problem I have with this young generation is that they don't read which makes them ignorant and ripe for fucking over-and they don't even realise it!

Education / Re: My Inability To Speak Fluent English Is Costing Me Huge Opportunities. by Cotton(m): 10:42am On Apr 01, 2022
Hailleys:
Help! I am about to finish my 300L stage in one of Nigeria state polytechnics but I am losing many opportunities due to my inability to speak fluently in English language. Although, I am good in typing/writing and I can compose my self in good English in my brain but it is very difficult whenever I open my mouth.
Any suggestion for improvement are welcome.
Thanks Nairalanders.

Watch cartoons. May sound strange but cartoons always use good English. It is usually better for the younger ones but if you enjoy cartoons then hey, why not?
Politics / Re: Andrew Yakubu: Court Acquits ex-NNPC GMD In Whose House $9.8m Was Found by Cotton(m): 10:59pm On Mar 31, 2022
Our youths don't have thinking skills. Everybody here is shouting but nobody has mentioned the law. He was charged with a particular crime and the EFCC could not prove it so he has to be acquitted. He said the money was accumulated gifts from persons. No money was found missing in the discharge of his duties. It is not enough to be sensational and shout, you also have to provide evidence. Giving gifts to public officers is not against the law. It is only against the law when it is given for them to do or not to do their duty. EFCC would need to show that the money is not his and where it came from. He can simply say that it is accumulated cash savings, he doesn't have to prove otherwise. The same thing with Tinubu and bullion van...it is not an offence for bullion van to enter your compound o! You have to prove what it was carrying and so many other things. The way the law works is different from emotional sensationalism. The law is meant for both the innocent and the guilty.

Crime / Re: Yangy, Babcock Student Accused Of Raping 24 Women. He Reacts by Cotton(m): 12:15pm On Jun 03, 2020
light099:
This case is obviously ganged-up blackmail and a case of some frustrated hoes and gold-digging losers, who felt so stupid after discovering a smart player has successfully shined their congos in succession, one after the other.


By the way, most Nigerian ladies do not know the difference between rape, hardsex and consensual forced sex. That is why 90% of Nigerian ladies who have had sex before always ignorantly claim to have been victims of rape at one time or the other. They always have fake stories to tell. Chasers of cheap clout.


Consensual forced sex? You are sick!

Politics / Re: Fulani Residents Reject Eviction From Bushes In Delta by Cotton(m): 10:27am On May 25, 2020
Coldie:
But the north is like 2times the size of the south, why can't these people stay in the north.

Kogi state is close to Delta, even Niger state and Benue and they have large land mass why can't they relocate there?

Or If possible relocate to ondo or oyo state they have a very large land mass that's fertile with lots of grasses.

Your thought processes are representative of your generation. Go and study the cattle routes. Markets are in the south. Onitsha is the largest market for that Asaba herder settlement. Secondly who are "these people?" Let me tell you, they are Nigerians so your ethnically inclined statements are not progressive. Hausa communities have been dotted throughout Delta State for many many years. It isn't a today thing. When you start chasing out any tribe from anywhere, but just on the grounds of their tribe then you are wrong. Not only is it illegal, it opens room for retaliation.

Nigeria is the largest shareholder with 9% And Nigeria is content as are the majority of shareholders.

Please stop misleading people. The US are a very significant shareholder being the 2nd largest shareholder.

Politics / Re: Buhari Signs Bill On Financial Autonomy Of State Legislature, Judiciary by Cotton(m): 4:31pm On May 23, 2020
KLand:
I'm just wondering how this financial autonomy will play out. Any ideas?

Yes, both state legislature and judiciary will receive their funding directly from the federation account. It weakens the powers of the governor to an extent.

It is a good thing. What is the worse that could happen after implementation? Even if current legislators may show indifference or feigned loyalty, going forward legislators can be more effective in passing laws that would benefit their constituencies rather than those that benefit the governor.

What about State Executive. This is Divide and Rule Strategy. You don't give Responsibilities without Authorities. The State Executive should have the Autonomy for all Authorities and Responsibilities begin from the Autonomy of the Constitutional States.

Oga what are you saying? State Executive already have financial autonomy. If Legislature and Judiciary can have financial autonomy at national level then why can't they have it at state level?

Change your money to USD and wait.
Inflation is going to skyrocket soon. US is printing money. We are still import dependent.
Subsidy has been removed. The pandemic won't last forever so by late this year most economies would have recovered. Oil price will rise and so will the dollar. Maybe early next year you can assess the environment, hopefully your money would have moved from 11m t0 13m.

The business sector is too volatile right now. Just buy USD and wait.

What do you mean testing based on pools?
Instead of testing individuals they take samples from a group and that sample represents the group. It is acceptable but not the best method. Especially with an unknown virus.

Iamgrey5:
I don't understand what you mean!

Lock down is not a solution in its self!

It's testing and quickly isolating Coronavirus patients to be treated that is most important.

Your country only tested 10,000 people in the four weeks lock down period, while the rest of African countries did nearly 8 to 12 times of that number in the same period and are ready to open up their their respective economics e.g.

Ghana

Algeria

South Africa

These countries are testing based on pools and not individuals (at least Ghana is). Nigeria is testing individuals which takes more time but is more accurate.

izzou:


Like I said, Nigerians flouted and are still flouting it

If the Government removes the lockdown, nothing spoil

But if(God forbid) bodies begin to litter everywhere, obviously a lockdown will be slammed on us. And by then, nobody will care about the death of the economy

You've said it all. We can be here talking rubbish about the economy but when things overcome us we will be begging for lockdown. Do you worry about the economy in the middle of a war? Yes people will suffer and die but more people will die if we don't get this under control. If ever we lose control we will need intervention from outsiders and that would come at a significant cost. Is it the outsiders that would not enforce a lockdown before they get control? Even if a vaccine is discovered, do you know how long it would take to vaccinate all Nigerians? Before that vaccine can be successfully administered there would be a lockdown. It is operational protocol.

You think those patriotic and obedient citizens will be patriotic and obedient if they get the same crappy and bullsh*t leadership and treatment we get from our leaders?
It's very hard to be 'normal' if you are a citizen at the lower end of the ladder in Nigeria
I am sorry sir but you are wrong. A government can not be better than its people. We as citizens are terrible. We have a national crisis yet some people will say "I must go to church/mosque" or "nothing like Corona virus" thereby compounding the problem. It is a simple directive. Stay at home and no gatherings yet we flout it with our "I too sabi" sense of false security.

If we as citizens cannot do better by way of social cooperation, ethnic and religous tolerance then don't blame the leaders that emerge.

joshjc:
Why do most couples who travel abroad end up getting divorced same thing happened to my auntu
Depends on the circumstances. but generally when you go abroad, the power balance shifts. The man is not expected to be pampered by the wife. The wife is not expected to be a servant to the husband. Everybody has to pull their weight. Women don't have to take shit. In Nigeria women take a lot of shit. Again it may be the woman's fault. Some marry just to be able to travel then they get divorced as they had ulterior motives.

Point of correction, Yams are not farmed in the north.
Don't argue this one, I Sabi pass you for that one.

Go check the people that do new yam festival and you'll know where true yams are farmed.
Charleys, that the fact that new yam festival is held annually in the east doesn't mean that is where the majority of our yams come from. The yam they call Onitsha yam is from the North. While we do farm yam in the south east, it is certainly not in the quantities that the north does.

[quote author= post=88313413]We believe It is for everyone's good health.
If LOCKDOWN came early in Italy, USA and the other countries severely affected by Coronavirus, it won't be as deadly as this.

Palliative measures is all we ask for, for the poor among Nigerians and those that make their daily bread selling on a daily basis.

We wish the last 2 presidents before our darling Daddy were named Obama and Clinton Bush that left trillions of dollars in America treasury before they left and nothing like looting or theft was heard of.
That is the only way Donald could ever had something to fall back on to be able to share 2 trillion dollars for all Americans in this pandemic period.
The 2 trillion dollars being shared was not left by anyone, it is being printed by the Fed.
Celebrities / Re: Police Take Funke Akindele To Court With Her Husband, JJC Skillz Over Lockdown by Cotton(m): 12:16pm On Apr 06, 2020
hedonister:
While FUnke and her husband did not do well, i don't think there's any law that can convict them as they have not committed any crime.
There will be a law under which the police are acting. Emergency powers have been invoked by the Federal Government and basically it is as if we are at war without the violence. She could be termed a saboteur, flaunting emergency regulations or something like that, but trust me, there will be a valid charge. A lot of us think that we don't have laws in Nigeria but we do. It is the enforcement that is lacking and once the law is enforced albeit sparingly, people are surprised.

Imarnuel08:
Hope they know that facemask is not just made from a piece of cloth o.

It should have particulate filtration and microfibre media filter to stop the virus and other tiny particles from penetrating. Hope they considered this

Meanwhile is mass production of masks right now the priority? Governors are hiding in their houses giving "orders". Are they even thinking of the economic costs of the ban on movement on citizens? Do these people even think??
So please what is your suggestion? That they shouldn't do it at all? They shouldn't ban movement? The economic cost is being felt by everybody but preserving as many lives as possible is paramount. It is better for an afflicted man to starve to death in his house than to go out and infect people while looking for food thereby spreading the virus.
