budaatum:

I'd pretty much agree, though I do not agree with 2 since mid-level public officers' salaries and allowances is rather small. Still, if you dobthosevothers, their salaries might more likely increase and reduce poverty even further.

Its that number 1 I agree with mostly, though I would add a 'y' so it reads "change your mindset", and therefore ensure each person is responsible for changing their own mindset.

If we all change our mindsets to realising we are responsible for the state that we are in, instead of behaving like Unoka and blaming everything and everyone else but ourselves, then Nigeria just might better.

Very correct on this one. Thank you for your input.

Politics / 8 Ways We Can Reduce Poverty In Nigeria. Do You Agree? by DevelopNaija: 4:59pm On Feb 10, 2020
I sent the picture below to my friend and she responded 'AMEN'. I had to remind her that this is not a prophecy but a goal that needs actions to become a reality.

#Poverty will drastically reduce if the following are done.

1. Change our mindset
2. Increase Minimum Wage.
3.Cut down public officers' salaries and allowances.
4. Gain 21st Century skills.
5. Provision of well paying jobs
6. Smart solutions for electricity and Water problem
7. Stop being greedy, selfish and self-centered.
8. Minding one's business

What other ways can we reduce poverty for ourselves and others? Any suggestions?

This is quite unfair. They would have made it compatible for transferring files to a Laptop.


How can I transfer files from A70 to a laptop using a cord?

Also, is there any other method to transfer files to a laptop aside Cord, Bluetooth and Xender?

Health / Nigerians Are Consuming Faeces Unknowingly by DevelopNaija: 6:16pm On Jul 05, 2019
Hey, I am Justin. I’m just a foreign tourist from a First World Country visiting Nigeria. I’ve been to quite a number of states in Nigeria. Nigeria is a “whole meal” I must confess – beautiful people, amazing culture, exquisite delicacies, relentless attitude and wonderful histories.

Today isn’t about my tourist experience. It’s about the fact that Nigerians are consuming faeces unknowingly – poor toilet hygiene, bad sanitation habits, and unclean water. Many areas in Nigeria lack access to clean water due to oil pollution and lack of provision of social amenities. I have seen videos of people washing fruits and vegetables with dirty algae infected water. The highbrow areas are not left out. In the 4-star hotel I stayed for some days, the water stinks of a combination of dead animals, and the caramel colour of the water is one I won’t forget in a hurry. I realise the rich are also suffering and smiling and if they have their way, they will import water.

I don’t even want to dwell on the poor sanitation habits adopted by citizens. I got to know that in almost all the states, a day is set aside for environmental sanitation but it is disheartening that people will opt to use that period for rest than indulge in cleaning. And oh yes, a lot of people break the sanitation curfew rules but you can’t blame them because those who set these laws are even the chief culprit.

Some Nigerians lack toilet access. Even areas that have public toilet lack basic maintenance culture. I am yet to see a public toilet that is averagely clean. Even the famous Muritala Mohammed Airport is not left out. This leaves me to wonder what exactly the causes of this unwholesome lifestyle.

You all need to stop indiscriminate dumping of refuse; Stop throwing your refuse in gutters; Develop a healthy maintenance culture; Use public property decently; and most importantly, CHANGE YOUR MINDSET!

The average Nigerian focuses on survival. But do you know that if you don’t take action to protect your water and environment, you all will continue struggling to survive yet dying gradually at the same time? What you give to your environment is what it will give back to you. Garbage in, Garbage out! Dear Nigerians, you need to leave the environment safe for generations to come.

Of recent, I noticed that online protest speed up things. Use your social media platforms to request for the provision of the basic social amenities from your government! Fight for your damn rights!

Everyone is affected, directly or indirectly! We are in 2019 and we have about 10 years to achieve the vision 2030. It is right about time to swing into action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Politics / Is Banky W (Bankole Wellington) Really Mr Capable? by DevelopNaija: 7:12pm On Nov 16, 2018
Ever since Banky W declared his intention to run for a political position, I am amazed to see and hear negative comments like

“He’s looking for money to change his Range Rover”
“Oh! This one thinks Politics is Entertainment.”
“Him music career don back up, him dey look for alternate source of income.”
“As EME don die na, the next things na politics.”
“Oh! I see. That’s why he became a motivational speaker lately”
“No money to maintain Adesuwa again?” (…and they had to bring his wife into it. Gosh!)


How soon people forget the saying - ‘LEAD BY EXAMPLE’.

Isn’t it impressive that one who advocates for good leadership/governance has taken the bold step to be part of the government in order to ensure positive change happens?

Same people who clamour for CHANGE are the same people castigating NEW, MENTALLY SOUND and 21st CENTURY THINKING political candidates. *In Lasisi’s voice - Are are are you mad?*

If you expect CHANGE in Nigeria and have refused to ignore recurrent politicians who have been in power for donkey years but have contributed little or nothing sustainable to Nigeria’s development; just know it’s not CHANGE you desire, maybe it is CHENG.

And hey, please don’t come with the ‘All are the same’ mentality. It is better to try new candidates than recycling old politicians.

The following are things that are bound to happen if Mr Wellington and other NEW, MENTALLY SOUND and 21st CENTURY THINKING political candidates win or get impressive vote counts in this coming election:

1. Hopes will rise.
2. The game of politics will gradually begin to change.
3. God-fatherism will begin to dwindle.
4. More new, selfless, innovative and mentally sound individuals will become courageous to vie for political positions.
5. We will get to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.


Let us all make conscious efforts to make the SDG 16 a reality in Nigeria.

To all the 21st Century Mindset candidates, WE DEY YOUR BACK *For the sake of extremely religious people who will begin to bind, cast and say “God forbid, I shall never be at the back.* Let me say instead - WE SUPPORT YOU!

And errrr…the caption was just to get your attention. *wink*

Travel / Re: Reasons Lagos Will Remain King And What Other States Should Do To Dethrone It by DevelopNaija: 9:27pm On Oct 05, 2018
anonymous96:
This is a poor write up tbh.. None of these reasons is why lagos is "King" just what comes with being d king..
Lagos is d king mainly bkaz when ur colonel masters came dy settled on lagos as d "capital".nd dy dd dat bkaz of logistics reasons close to sea for transportation of goods, so trade was easier, den d banks came nd opened in lagos too 4 dis reason,den no electronic transactions so dy brought pounds with ships.. Blah blah blah.. Which lead to lagos being what it is today.. No state in Nigeria can come close. Even if you make Barrack Obama their governor. D economy of lagos alone is bigger than that of most African countries. Only d federal govt can truly develop other states to d point lagos has reached. Move d financially industry from Lagos nd d up nd coming tech industry from lagos nd we stand a chance.. No developed country in d world u wud see 80% of d main industries situated or having their H/Q in one city.. Because of Politics nd what might b termed tribalism or favouritism d FG can't take industries from Lagos as it wud b deemed unfair.(nd if we are to go further everything actually dates back to d age of slavery)

Err... don't Calabar have a seaport? Didn't the colonial masters settle in Calabar as the 'Capital' before Lagos?

Travel / Reasons Lagos Will Remain King And What Other States Should Do To Dethrone It by DevelopNaija: 5:11pm On Oct 05, 2018
I was opportune to do my National Youth Service Corp in Lagos precisely in one of the highbrow areas in Lagos. Then, my conversation or chat with most people goes like this…

“Where are you serving?”

“Lagos” I reply.

“Lucky you, So many opportunities for you.”

“If only other states are developed and offer many career/business opportunities just like Lagos, you would know that there is nothing really ‘lucky’ about working in Lagos.” I tell them.

From my observation and experience, here are the reasons Lagos will remain KING of GROWTH and DEVELOPMENT:

1. Limitless Career and Business opportunities

Have you ever thought of why Mark Zuckerberg visited Lagos to promote technology instead of promoting it in Sokoto; or why Lagos always have the highest number of Youth Corp members yearly? It is because there are less hindrances and more potential opportunities to thrive in the Lagos environment. Lagos is a city where people are given the opportunity and freedom to thrive and develop with little or no political or tribal obstacle.


2. Minimal Tribal/Indigene interference:

I hardly hear of tribal clash or community interference in one’s business area of operation in Lagos.


3. Freedom to thrive as a non-indigene:

Lagos is known as ‘No man’s land’. No discrimination! Everyone who can make valuable contribution to the Lagos economy is highly welcomed and appreciated! Just be a good citizen and pay your tax!


4. Government with futuristic vision

I need not say much. Just Google “Best State Governments in Nigeria” and see if Lagos isn’t among the top! Personally, I am very impressed with the way the Lagos State Response Unit rapidly attend to emergency situations all anywhere in the state.


Any state that wants to dethrone Lagos as KING of GROWTH and DEVELOPMENT should do the following:

1. STOP all forms of tribal discrimination as well as political and community interference in one’s business area of operation.

2. Give non-indigenes same equal opportunity as indigenes.

3. The Government should attract investor with favourable and juicy conditions.

4. Elect people who are competent leaders and are capable of pushing for economic growth and development all over the state.


As a business owner or an entrepreneur, make conscious effort to contribute to the economic development of your state by opening a business site in your state, if possible, make your state the headquarters of your business.


The beautiful thing about dethroning Lagos is that, Lagos will become depopulated because same opportunities in Lagos will become present in other states


Accolades goes to people like Innoson Motor Boss – Innocent Chukwuma and popular Nollywood actor – Jim Iyke for overlooking the opportunities in Lagos to set up their businesses in the South-East which has and will continue to create several career/ business opportunities for residents in the region.

To all those who have decided to focus on economically improving other states and create job opportunities for residents by setting up their businesses there, your works are deeply appreciated.

Dear Nigerians, vote leaders with these 6 traits. If we truly want Nigeria to be developed, we shouldn’t overlook these qualities when deciding whom to vote in the forthcoming election.

As citizens of Nigeria, we need to play our part by voting credible political aspirants so we can easilly achieve Sustainable Development Goal 16 – Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.

We need to continually advocate for a transparent, corrupt-free, peaceful and fair government.

Pets / 6 Reasons Nigerians Should Stop Killing Wild Animals by DevelopNaija: 4:40pm On Aug 31, 2018
Few days ago, I read about a Nigerian lady who bought a turtle just because she wanted to return it to the sea and prevent the turtle from being killed. This lady inspired me to write this article. I wish we all can be like this lady who sees the importance of wildlife. Here are reasons Nigerians should stop killing wildlife.


1. Wildlife creates a healthy ecosystem:

Plants and animals contribute to a healthy ecosystem. Loss of wildlife results to imbalance of the ecosystem. According to some contributors on Quora, Wildlife work together to create a biosphere and healthy ecosystem that helps to sustain life. The Ecosystem provides us with clean water, food and shelter. When a particular wildlife is gone, it affects the food chain which directly or indirectly affects the food web thus destroying the ecosystem.


2. Animals improve Human Psychology:

Do you know that spending time with animals improves your mental state; clears your head from negativity; boost happiness; serves as a great and real companion especially for lonely people; fights depression and improves positivity? Indeed, nature is a blessing to human; think twice before killing that animal. I haven’t seen or heard anyone that went to a wildlife centre or zoo and returned unhappy. You also tend to derive a higher level of happiness when you are care for wildlife.


3. There will be more fertile Farmlands:

A healthy ecosystem enriches the fertility of our lands for better farming practices; thereby making farmers have better farming experience and reap rich harvest.


4. Wildlife is very useful for Research and Medicinal Purpose:

U.S Fish and Wildlife Service states that 25% of the medicinal prescriptions given every year contain chemicals from animals. Who knows if that specie of chimpanzee or marine mammal that just got killed is where the antidote for HIV or cancer is meant to emanate from.


5. Jobs will increase:

If Nigeria decides to take Wildlife conservation seriously, there will be a great increase in jobs that deal with the protection, conservation and management of wildlife.

6. More revenue from Tourist attraction:

Obviously, conserving our wild animals and creating functional wildlife centres will attract tourists from all over the world and this will definitely generate very large revenue for Nigeria.

Every day, we hear about people killing wild animals in Nigeria. If asked their reason, you will hear “When there is hunger, what do you expect us to eat?” I implore every Nigerian to vote responsible and foresighted political aspirants who know the importance of Wildlife and will help Nigeria achieve SDG 14 - Life below Water and SDG 15 - Life on Land. However, achieving these goals will become very possible when we are able to tackle Poverty and Hunger in Nigeria.

More so, people who are guilty of killing wild animal may not see this write-up, therefore, when we come across such people, it is our duty to enlighten them about the usefulness of wildlife as well as discourage them from harming wildlife.

khadaffi:


Give me one example of a clean environment anywhere in the world where the government does not have any sttategy for environmental issue yet the environment is clean. And to your earlier assertion that govt provide refuse dump but people refuse to use it. Please that is a lie except you are talking about few states in the south, I'm assuming you are addressing the Nation not Lagos or calabar. This site is used by people from various states. When You go to most states in Nigeria, nothing like that.

***modified***

Ok I get you now. What you are saying is dump sites. Goodness me. Dump sites can't solve anything. Jesus! Let's take an example. In practical term, how do these dirt get to the street? When someone eats or drink pure water in ojota or Ikorodu. Say Ikorodu garage. Is there a refuse bin close by where you can put the dirt to avoid you throwing it on the street. As you walk the sttrets there should be visible bins everywhere. I know Lagos is trying in this area but how many states are following suit?

I get your point....the government is doing little or nothing to make the environment clean; I am very much aware and bitter about it. But still, that is not a valid reason to litter the environment...two wrongs can't make a right. If government don't provide public toilets, does that mean you will defecate on yourself when you are pressed in public? All I am saying is that we shouldn't contribute to make things worse.

More wisdom sir. The last point jokes is really a subtle but major problem. When we fail to acknowledge our discomfort by assuaging our sufferings with the covering of jokes, it limits our determination to rise above our problems.

While jokes help us get by to avoid depression, it has also inhibited us from lifting ourselves above our problems and challenges.


When we are supposed to challenge the leaders/politicians we would rather make a joke and accept our fate.
I dare say some of these online memes and jokes are sponsored by politicians and has become anothet opium for the masses.

Yes Sir, the government did provide refuse bins and refuse dump sites. Okay, let's assume the government doesn't provide or does not implement appropriate strategies to environmental issues; but is that enough justification as to why people litter the streets with dirts?

Op see your mouth! Has an Igbo person ever had the privilege of being fronted as a presidential aspirant in this God-forsaken country? In the 90's, Igbos supported and voted for that thief called MKO but what did they get from the yorubas today as appreciation if not backstabbing and hate?

yorubas and northerners are the only ones who do this rubbish you made as an example. They did it in 2015 because buhari is from the north and osibande from the South west...now look where we are today.


Exactly my point, Sir! It's very wrong to vote someone base on TRIBE! I see you are in support of an Igbo president, but leadership qualities should come first before tribe.

Education / 6 Ignorant Things Nigerians Do That Hinders Development In Nigeria by DevelopNaija: 1:37pm On Jul 02, 2018
There are lot of factors that impedes Sustainable Development in Nigeria but today’s focus is on ignorant things Nigerians do that hinders development in Nigeria.

1. Entitlement Mentality

A good number of Nigerians feel entitled to certain things without working hard for them. It is amusing when trying to develop a community buying setting up a business venture or developing properties, you still get to settle youths and some groups in the community simply because they are INDIGENES and you have to pay homage to them. Likewise some fans who beg celebrities for money and other goodies; when they (fans) don’t get the desired attention, they resort to insults and curses. How can we grow as a nation when people are not willing to work hard but are ready to interrupt other’s progress?


2. Voting Leaders Due To Petty Reasons:

“Awwn! He comes from a humble background.” “Let’s vote her, she is the first woman to ever contest for this position.” “He schooled in Harvard.” “This man is from my community”. “Let’s vote him, it is high time we had an Igbo President.” “He is the youngest candidate” “The man is so cute”. Aspiring leaders should be voted based on their Strong and Impactful Leadership Profile; their Positive Impact on the Common Man; and their contribution to Sustainable Development/Humanity in Nigeria.


3. Contributing To Underdevelopment:

I know the government have much influence in Nigeria’s development but citizens also have a role to play. Example – We complain of flood, but it is citizens who block drainages with dirts thrown indiscriminately on the streets. Government don’t want to provide jobs but you are reluctant to develop yourself with the right skills to become a ‘hot cake’ in the labour market.


4. Violating Rules And Regulations:

Most Nigerians find it difficult to obey rules and regulations except when a heavy penalty is attached to it. If we find it hard to obey simple traffic rules, how then do you think Nigeria can achieve that desired growth when her citizens can’t even follow simple order without a penalty attached to it?


5. Attaching RELIGION To Everything:

It is saddening to hear that we have more religious centres than industries in Nigeria. Many shout ‘AMEN’ to prophetic declaration without working for such prophecies to come to pass. We have become extremist of our religion, thus, preventing our brains to work and allowing our religious sentiments to inform our decisions. God has a reason He gave man a brain. If we keep praying without working, we’ll keep on complaining and development in Nigeria will continually regress.


6. Converting Serious Issues To Jokes:

I know jokes are good to lighten up a sad/negative mood but too much of everything is bad. It’s high time we reduced the rate we create jokes/memes about sensitive issues and corrupt practices on social media. Let us take advantage of social media in exposing and condemning silly acts of the government as well as advocating for economic growth and better living condition. The way we react to sensitive issues in Nigeria determines and influences the way our leaders rule us.


If we fail to heed to the aforementioned points, development in Nigeria will continue to be in regress mode.

Health / 3 Groups That Can Influence The End Of Environmental Pollution In Nigeria by DevelopNaija: 6:56pm On Jun 06, 2018
2018 World Environment Day has come and gone but nothing will ever change about Nigeria’s environmental pollution if all we do is to hold rallies, conferences and talk with no action to back it up.

For Nigeria to beat environmental pollution, the following categories of people have an influential part to play.

1. Companies and Organisations: To the best of my knowledge, there is no Eco-friendly practicing indigenous company in Nigeria. Even world top brands operating in Nigeria (aside very few) are not moved to save our environment because of much profit. Very sad! Until companies make it a point of duty to desist from harmful production practices that destroy our environment, our environment will keep deteriorating.

2. Religious Leaders: Religious leaders have a great influence in the lives of their followers. A good number of Nigerians have 100% belief in what their religious leaders tell them. During every religious gathering, religious leaders are encouraged to constantly enlighten their members on ways to contribute to save the environment. Making the world a better and safer place isn’t only about spirituality.

3. Celebrities/Entertainers: Entertainment is the language 90% of Nigerians listen and understand. Do you know how fast we will get in ending Nigeria’s environmental pollution if lyrics about sex, money, women, sensitive body parts, alcohol, and clubbing are interchanged for lyrics about environment pollution and being Eco-friendly? Do you know how closer we will be to curb environmental pollution if every Nigerian movie plot subtly passes the message of ‘safe environment’?

If everyone contributes their quota in advocating for safe environment practice, the Government will be persuaded to enact favourable ‘environment safety’ bills into laws.
