who steals $9m and keeps it at home.APC just believes that they can just say anything they like because you are not on same page with them, na wa o. Only time will tell who is a saint and otherwise in this political sphere of ours.

dude just say u do not know of anyone who has kept money at home I can personally tell u of two politicians who kept huge sums of cash at home. the house which one of this politicians kept the money was burning the called him and he said let the house burn with the money. the people in the community were even begging him that they should save the cash. the guy refused and said if anyone goes there the security should arrest them. it was after the house had burned down that peeps saw the burned fragments of foreign hard currency. the second one I know of was during easter I was coming from church when we saw two men fighting. when we separated them and asked what was the problem one of them said that can we imagine his said as his boss was not around that they should take some cash out of the boxes of hard currency that their oga stored in one wing of the house. he said the guy was a very bad friend that wanted to put him in gbese he knows how the oga has bugged the house and how ruthless the guy was.

US have the Senate and House of representatives making it two chambers, we actually copied their system.

and funny enough the vice president is the senate president. he only has someone who deputises/preside when he is not around. it would have been good if our senate was an analogue of the British house of lords i.e the traditional rulers would be the senators representing the Interests of their domain at federal level, harmonise traditional/national laws and cultures,work on creating a truly indivisible Nigeria, do away with their harmful power trips and more importantly justify the huge amount being expended on them yearly

Anyway my point is we can learn from those places for better and for worse we do not have to copy them. The fact is Lagos is where it is and what it is . It cannot be moved. Are we to go and study Niger or Chad?
Whether we do something or we do nothing because of that there is risk of flooding.
We seem to be having a pointless debate here because no one has said what is actually being done at Oworonshoki. Soe have assumed that it involves dredging. I am not commenting on that all I am sayng is there is no reason why we should not develop our waterways and coastal areas taking into account the experence of other places. don't see what that has got to do with whether Venice is sinking unless you can tell us why that is so and how that translates to Lagos

To those clamoring for dredging, here is an excerpt from a report to UK ministers after a heavy flood.

"The river channel is not large enough to contain extreme floods, even after dredging. Dredging of river channels does not prevent flooding during extreme river flows … The concept of dredging to prevent extreme flooding is equivalent to trying to squeeze the volume of water held by a floodplain within the volume of water held in the river channel. Since the floodplain volume is usually many times larger than the channel volume, the concept becomes a major engineering project and a major environmental change."
Is that not bleeding obvious? A river's capacity is tiny by comparison to the catchment from which it draws its water. You can increase the flow of a river by dredging, but that is likely to cause faster and more dangerous floods downstream when the water hits the nearest urban bridge (something the residents of towns like Taunton and Bridgwater should be worried about). If you cut it off from its floodplain by turning it into a deep trench, you might raise its capacity from, say, 2% of the water moving through the catchment to 4%. You will have solved nothing while creating a host of new problems.
Among these problems, the Environment Agency points out, are:
1. Massive expense. Once you have started dredging, "it must be repeated after every extreme flood, as the river silts up again".
2. More dangerous rivers: "Removing river bank vegetation such as trees and shrubs decreases bank stability and increases erosion and siltation."
3. The destabilisation of bridges, weirs, culverts and river walls, whose foundations are undermined by deepening the channel: "If the river channels are dredged and structures are not realigned, 'Pinch Points' at structures would occur. This would increase the risk of flooding at the structure." That means more expense and more danger.
4. Destruction of the natural world: "Removing gravel from river beds by dredging leads to the loss of spawning grounds for fish, and can cause loss of some species. Removing river bank soils disturbs the habitat of river bank fauna such as otters and water voles."
As the agency says, dredging is primarily a tool for improving navigation and, in some places, land drainage. It has been mistaken by people who ought to know better, including ministers, as a means of dealing with a different problem: flooding.
If you want to stop rivers from ruining people's lives, you should engage with the kind of issues that Paterson hinted at. That means, broadly speaking, the following:
More trees and bogs in the uplands – reconnecting rivers with their floodplains in places where it is safe to flood (and paying farmers to store water on their fields while the danger passes);
Making those floodplains rougher by planting trees and other deep vegetation to help hold back the water – lowering the banks and de-canalising the upper reaches, allowing rivers once more to create meanders and braids and oxbow lakes. These trap the load they carry and sap much of their destructive energy.
None of these produce instant results. But they are distinguished from dredging in one significant respect: they work .

Dredging can help in periods of low tides but in times of high tide, its as helpful to a security guard as opening the vault door

0monnak0da:
So what has that got todo with what I wrote? Did you comprehend it?

I comprehended what you wrote but I believe the problem was that I did not expatiate on my answers. You wrote that the UK, Netherlands and Venice should be looked towards as solution to Lagos problem, while I responded Venice was sinking. What I was simply telling you was that Venice irrespective of drainage and canals/lagoon is sinking and that despite the admirable defiance of nature by the Venetians they have and will ultimately lose the war with nature. Did you know that parts of Venice are flooded as much as 60 times a year. Do you also know that approximately 6.7 billion euros is needed to save Venice not to talk of the millions expended yearly. I hope you do not sincerely believe that a state government would expend such yearly in Nigeria. In the UK dredging was recently a disaster(reference: search for Somerset levels) such that a professor of hydrology commented that dredging is a simplistic approach to a complex situation. the less said about Netherlands. Canals were historically established for trade as it cut down travel time for movement of goods.. The problem is that people have built on the natural channel of flood water. Places like Venice, new York and even Lagos that are so close to sea level will continue sinking. To those pointing at emirati artificial islands as pinnacle of engineering do note that they are slowly sinking because some of the materials used in their construction were dredged sediments and sand. Those are porous materials which are carried away during rainfall.

This is emotion. Are you an Engineer.

Too dangerous? Is dredging the only way of developing the area
Flloding occurs because there is no drainage not just in that area but across Lagos. With the right engineering solution storm water can be managed

Amsterdam Venice and the UK are good examples of canalization solutions.

We do not have to be superstitious about nature

and Venice is sinking

this young lady must be cautioned. She studied as a lawyer and should know that the constitution trumps religious law. A religion is a personal and not a national choice, hence when your religion comes in conflict with the law personal choices have to be forgone. You young lady are not the first female Muslim lawyer and you will certainly not be the last so why then do you think that you should be given special choice over all others who came before you. That reeks of Arrogance, self centeredness and more worrying lawlessness this points are especially true as we have had eminent female lawyers and justices. this lady should be monitored carefully because if care is not taken she can become a rallying point for ne'er do well and mischievous politicians and terrorist. This brings to mind when former IGP okiro was warning about boko haram after they had chased and injured immunisation workers who came to immunise the children of sect members.

No, FFK is not a fool, stupid and idiot like you opined, but much more intelligent than you are.

The timing and Tillerson last diplomatic engagement(in other words, the last person he engaged with...within the ambit of geo-political calculations before he got fired), have subtle message to it plus all those other factors from CNN regarding his relationship/views with Trump.

I might also add that FFK has much more analytical skills and critical reasoning way, way above your realm period.

stop following jingoism. tilllerson has been battling for his job for quite a while. if had an idea of what is happening rather than jumping up and down mindlessly following bitter, hate filled political jobbers like ffk then you will know that UAE, Saudis and Israel dislike tillerson and so UAE finally lobbied through kusher(Trump's son in law and arch rival of tillerson who tillerson has called a backstabber) to remove tillerson. the reason why it occurred shortly after tillerson visit to Africa was so that he would not weasel out of the sack and that his powerful ally the sec of defense is not in us. so please stop peddling the words of a failed jobber because of us hate for buhari because know this the internet never forgets.
