|Religion / Re: Japa: Rev Esther Ajayi Advises Nigerian Couples Against Relocating Abroad by ekerintee: 7:38pm On Dec 03|
Smart women will invite their husband to share the load with him.if they are alone ,they have to pay all the bills alone but when the man is around ,it's when you hear this wise African tell the man ,that the man is responsible for all the bills and they only pay a little part or nothing at all.when they are tired of the man ,they divorce and the man continues to pay them monthly after divorce.African women are very clever,only a strong woman can survive alone abroad without a man ,U need a man to help you at home and support.even single mothers have bf that help them

Most Nigerians don't understand this.Its only when you have paid all your monthly bills that you can think of helping anyone.infact ,some of the bills are programmed to be deducted from your bank account monthly and U have no choice .some pple find it easy and have good jobs tht pay well,some do 2 or 3 jobs to be able to save and some stand up to 10 hours working so hard ,some have to wake up as early as 4am to go to work.so when somebody who does not know what they do to survive ask them for money,they feel very angry.The best is to give if you have ,Uare not under any obligation to give anyone money and don't let anyone make U feel bad for not helping anyone.when you are broke abroad ,nobody to help,nobody will pay your bills for u
|Politics / Re: Clement Agba: State Governors Are Responsible For Rising Poverty in Nigeria by ekerintee: 7:36am On Dec 01|
Who we go blame now ,state govt understand that the people want to see bridges and flyover ,roads etc and will even borrow money to do this.The governor do not focus on the immediate needs of people ,food ,shelter etc . Governor wud do everything in their power in their first tenure to build infrastructure and in second tenure relax and loot and the people keep suffering.our local govt have failed ,the local govt are closer to d people than the state ,the state is closer to the people than the federal.The Nigerian structure is not working as it shud.All tiers of govt have their own share of the blame.All Nigerian politicians are same .You don't change peoples life over night but consistently thru well laid down plan across all tiers of govtment .Magic dont happen overnight

She is entitled to her view but I think she ought to respect the office of the queen.even thou the queen may have made wrong decisions,her office deserves high respect.her statement make her a target to white extremist,U cant insult an Emirate crown and go Scot free but we shud take freedom of speech for granted ,we need apply wisdom.There are people who have done worst things than the queen.we need to focus on the good things she did in her life time and live the other for God to decide .the dead deserve some respect ,even the prof might have done some things people don't like ,does not mean she is a bad person.Her statement protrays a negative image on Nigeria and tribe ,pple are now saying this is typical of ibos ,which may not be totally true ,foreigners will say it's typical of Nigerians to act that way.funiest things is she tweeted in English ,the queen's language and she probably lives in a British colony.

I am still trying to understand what management skills she has to qualify for the post.To manage a state ,U must have managed a local govt successfully,to make a local govt ,U must have managed a ward successfully, to manage a ward ,U must have managed a company at least successfully,and managing your own home.having problems at home sometimes affect performance at work.

Be calming down Oga , comparing African and Europe is two diferent thing,If its in Europe,government has no business in building houses for people .Its is the work of private people,government duty is to regulate prices and rent.Banks provide mortgage for people to buy or build houses, so be calming down .Oneday we will get there in Nigeria.If you become president of Nigeria today, you cant solve Nigerias problem in a day.Learn to appreciate little things, even if its a block of flat, he did something

Nigerian Election is complicated,in a sane country he can win.if i will analyse Nigerian politics,his chances are slim unless he has enough funds and money to spend.campaigning for election in europe , you dont need much money bt in a land where people are hungry and suffering.You need lots of money to campaign,you need people to fund your election.There are some places that you will go and they tell you that b4 they even listen to you, u have to pay marching ground or settle some people .If u are a politician and u are nt ready to spend,u cant win in Nigeria,the truth is no nigerian politician is a saint , they all give out money bt the other side of it is that one gives more than the other. I expect all those shouting obedient up and down shud start raising funds to push him up,Nigerian politics is nt on twitter or nairaland.I remember this young guy that contested for president in one of this south or eastern african country.He was the popular candidate bt he never won.Aside from internal factors, there are some powers that determine who becomes president,lets not decieve ourself, this people know who wil be the next president .Inadition , external interest also determine who becomes president, there are some world powers that also decide who they want as president .we are talking about Nigeria , one of the most populous country in the world .Who ever becomes Nigeria president has to be who the Cabals want.And come to think of it, cabals are very where , elections are not only rigged and manipulated in Nigeria, its done everywhere .The western world will never admit that.There is something i see in Nigeria , people attacking others who dont share same view or political view ,if we say we want democracy , why shud we threaten others or curse others who dont share your view.Promote your candidate in peace , promote your party and dont attack others , politics is not war
|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: My Incompetence Just Cost Me A Job, I Feel Worthless by ekerintee: 1:41pm On Mar 15|
You need to forget what you lost and prepare for a beginner job.even rich people make losses too.Programming is not as easy as people think it's and not what everyone can go into.it requires a high level of reasoning and you have got to be in a good frame of mind.if your mind is troubled,you can't write any meaningful line of code,U need to be consistent if U want to b a programmer,a code that worked last year may not work this year due to update and new versions.so when U leave coding for sometime,U may have to struggle to come back.You need other experienced programmers around you that you can contact when you run into problem and also encourage you.dont wait for jobs to come,work on personal project that you can showcase and also build your confidence.have project and write proposals to potential clients.coding is not as easy as what those one month bootcamp claim.it takes time and practice and consistency.age of 30 is still young ,some start at an older age.dont be too in a haste to get rich as you think programmers are.i think you should start with front end if you are into webdevelopment and then maybe backend .Programmers are not magicians ,it's lots of thinking ,research,Google work and positive attitude.dont stay alone , socialize too
quote author=Supremedrizzy post=111045037]Someone gave me a simple job of making an existing static site template responsive within 24 hours and I blew it. A simple task that should take few hours, it looked all good on my localhost only to test it on netlify and it turned out to be a disaster. I'm just so ashamed of myself.
I've been learning web dev since mid last year though its been a case of one month on three months off, I've been grossly inconsistent due circumstances beyond my control. I haven't even coded this year because I come back from my menial hustles with battered bones and weak muscles. You can imagine trying to code after offloading a trailer load of cement all day. I even had to use bet shops around for the gig amidst the pangs of hunger I felt while working coupled with the noisy and distracting environment I was working in which contributed to my legendary blunder.
At the age of 30 and unemployed I've always seen programming as my way out of poverty but it seems I'm not good enough. I'm painfully watching that little flicker of hope fizzle out before my tearful eyes. Which other skill can I dabble into product design?? I suck at designs reason why my frontend skills is below average... should I try backend?? I'm just confused, frustrated and down casted not knowing the next step to take while time is no longer on my side.
Life currently has no meaning and direction to me, I just seem to be flowing aimlessly with the flow. My situation is giving me sleepless nights and I now rely on drugs to sleep for even three hours a day.
I really need someone to talk to, I'm really tired of trying to work out things on my own. I'm 30, broke, lonely and depressed, single has been a constant in my life's equation cos I don't even like myself for who I am presently so I don't expect someone's daughter to like me in this my miserable state.
Someone should please show me the way, this dark tunnel is fast turning to a maze that I can't navigate on my own.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Chinese Embassy Responds To Claims Moscow Asked For Military Assistance by ekerintee: 4:59pm On Mar 14|
The truth is that cost of labour is cheap in Africa too but this people don't want the progress of Africa and secondly Africa is not ready to invest on development and technology.What China simply did is to have the technology and then advertise what they can do to the whole world.if you need original ,they give you original ,if you need fake ,they give you fake according to what you ask them to produce for you.if Africa does same and persuade people to patronise them ,we can get there.But sorry to say ,these people don't want Africa to be self independent.They want us to always buy from them and not them depend on us
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Chinese Embassy Responds To Claims Moscow Asked For Military Assistance by ekerintee: 12:28pm On Mar 14|
China really need the whole world more .its not really that the USA or Europe cannot produce what China produces but cost of labour and production is far cheaper in china.most of the items in Europe are outsourced to China because it's far cheaper there,a company has an idea and thinks how do i produce this cheap,he sent a copy of what he wants to China and they give him,so it's a two way thing.without people ordering from China ,China won't survive alone.Countries need each other,even China need money from Africa to help their economy

|Travel / Re: My Plan To Relocate To Uk by ekerintee: 6:49pm On Feb 21|
It depends on alot of factors,your age ,your strength,your sex.The younger you are ,the stronger you are to endure the hardship abroad.what kind of job do you want to do abroad in UK?.cleaner,factory job ,nurse ,i.t ,driver etc also determines what you earn.can U work 12 hours a day as some folks who claim they save 2k pounds abroad.can u wake up as early as 3am as some people do,can U stand for 8 or more hours working,can you endure racism.can you endure the harsh weather( cold ).can you go thru depression as some folks abroad go through daily .some folks just fail to understand that not everyone have the ability to survive under such conditions.if you can endure such ,you are good to go .Not everyone will tell you how they make their money abroad and what they do to survive.The live abroad is good,if I may advice U,don't jump because everyone is jumping,not everyone land in same place
|Travel / Re: Experience My First Racism In U. K From Someone Who I Thought Was My Friend. by ekerintee: 12:57am On Feb 21|
It's normal thing to be discriminated upon.do U know that even folks who marry white folks have quarrels and the white counterpart insults the whole black race.its in their blood ,the best you can do is when they insult or discriminate against you ,U absorb it or give them a hot one back to tell them you self can discriminate against them .anyway ,it's an offence here to say racial words against someone but the truth is that many people do it and nobody does anything about it.If you have time ,U can sue the person if you have proofs .you win some money if you win the case

Before tax or after tax.how much do you spend on accomodation ,housing and utilities.As much as it is good to travel out ,don't just mislead people without proper information.it takes time to integrate into any country,people don't get job just immediately in any country and you forget to mention how hard you have to work to get that money or how you have to work 12 hours or more to survive in a strange country Nigerians should learn to be truthful and how some Nigerians do shady stuff to avoid taxes,do jobs that they will never do in Nigeria.

You are entitled to your thought.in the nearest future,am afraid there may be nothing like marriage again because of thought like yours.No man wants a liability just as no company wants unproductive staff.its hight time Nigerian women wake up
,Our fathers handled all responsibility when Nigeria was good.With the present day Nigeria ,its wickedness when U see Ur man struggling to pay bills and U are saying he must carry all.if the man has the power to carry all the bills,no problem with that but I don't think it's a law anywhere ,men can help at home when they see the load is too much for the wife or they share house responsibility based on agreement,no law about that.some people see marriage as opportunity to get themselv off some responsibility,a means of getting rich.you must hav something to offer in marriage ,if you don't have anything to offer ,you are a liability,no man or woman wants a liability.this applies to both men and women.couples are meant to help one another and not one party claiming processor and reciever

I strongly agree with you ,even if you marry the right woman,she can still turn against U ,not every woman has the capacity to endure tough time and hardship.The generation of women we have now , majority only want men for comfort.if U go thru tough times,only the good one will stay .In future ,there may be less marriage ,men are going thru bad times in hand of women.The society has so much empowered them,I must say men have their own weak side too.
|Travel / Re: Quiting My Job To Join My Wife Abroad by ekerintee: 4:18pm On Dec 21, 2021|
It depends on your age ,your level in civil service ,your strength ( healthwise) .Are you ready to hussle under an unfavourable environment.forget about what people say they do abroad.Some naija folks abroad will not tell you what they do to survive .Some will not tell you they wake up so early to go to do menial jobs under the cold.i think that kind of life may not be good for someone of a particular age( 40 upwards).your qualifications and skills matter .it takes time to integrate into any environment,so I advice you don't resign immediately,go on visit ,then when you are sure of what you can do to survive there.make your move ,forget all those telling U to resign immediately,the environment abroad is harsh ,U may not be able to cope with the weather , lifestyle etc and don't forget you will pay bills monthly.agree with your wife ,I must say most naija women change when they get abroad,unless the one that is really deeply rooted in God
|Family / Re: I Think My Marriage Is In Trouble Please Help! by ekerintee: 9:29am On Dec 08, 2021|
I must say your wife character is typical of Most Nigerian ladies abroad,the environment abroad gives them so much power.Some may call you a weak man but ,I know what men abroad go through in the hand of bad and wicked wives.You dare not shout on her or hit her else you are in trouble with the police.The only thing I can advice you is to endure and if it's affecting you psychologically then it's best you leave the house for her,she may come to beg you.Those bad wives know it's hard to find a good man,the only regret is that the children might suffer for the sins of their mother.Most of what this ladies do abroad,they know they can't try it in Nigeria.i am not saying all Nigerian ladies abroad are bad ,but the majority.So also we have bad men also abroad.its like there is this spirit that enters them when they step abroad.Your mother remains your mother, Nigerian women are gullible and easily decieved by prophets.Talk to your wife and let her know your position as a man,if she wants to be the head of the home,then you had better leave the home for her to control and find yourself another house.

Marriage in this age is turning to another Thing.Marriage was a Blessing to Our parents,but marriage in this age is a thorn in the flesh.When you marry the wrong Person ,its a life of regrets.Both Sex are guilty in this ,but i think Most Nigerian women mentality about mariage has Changed .Our men are refusing to understand that you cant practice marriage Like the Way that Our fathers handled marriage.You hardly find find women WHO will submit to any man .we See women WHO want the men to bow to them.We See men who want women WHO can be Slave to them.Marriage has Lost its purpose now.i noticed even those we called religious sister are even worse marriage Partners and also religious Brothers.The result of failed marriage IS telling on children and society at large

What exactly is at stake? .is IT Family properties .If there is a good relationship bw your father and him.why do you want to destroy the relationship?. If there is a father and child relationship bw your Brother and your father ,do you want to destroy it because they are Not related by blood .If your father loves him dear ,leave IT that way.sometimes,old people Know the truth and See Things before they die,this Things you think He does Not Know might have been revealed to him one Way or the other and He might have decided to leave IT AS He is because He has Other children WHO are His by blood .its more painful to a man If none of d Kids are His .If one is Not His ,He can ignore IT,If He loves the person.your Brother has a duty to Take Care of your father If your father sufferred to train him.so why deprive your father of reaping where He sowed.Your Brother is 42 or so,so does He Care much for your fathers property,is He a black sheep ? .If all of you suffered together with your dad then you all have a right to him.if He has supported and supported your dad AS a child .If you are thinking of d property,then simply Tell your Brother when your father dies that He has No right to any property
|Family / Re: Should I Tell My Dad That My Step-brother Is Not His Son ? by ekerintee: 5:20pm On Oct 14, 2021|
Exactly ,i agree with you.if His father has invested in the Guy to such an age .To His Brother ,He is a father maybe Not biological father .A father is the one who was there for him from birth ,Not the one who is not there .If i Love someone ,even thou ,He May Not be my biological child ,He is still my child.If His father loves him and He has been a good child ,the Revelation cant Stop anything .If He has been a very Bad child ,maybe the old man May decide to reject him.i think the OP is wicked,assuming His step brother is sucessful and maybe a billionare or a governor ,will He reveal the Secret ,will He Care If He is His Brother or not.just thinking
|Family / Re: Should I Tell My Dad That My Step-brother Is Not His Son ? by ekerintee: 5:02pm On Oct 14, 2021|
Of what Use do you want to Tell him.is IT for him to be excluded from the will ?.i think If your father loves him,biologically He May Not be His blood but by associate,He is His child.And what makes you think your father does Not Know .There are some Secrets men keep.it depends on the relationship between your father and your Brother ,If they so much Love each Other and your father loves him dear,i dont need you need to declare IT to him.if you are thinking of him to be excluded from your fathers will,that May seems selfish.If He has been with your father for Long as a child and has served your father loyally since birth.He is still counted as His child thou Not biological.just my thought,maybe am wrong

Do you think there is No corruption abroad,the only difference IS that the Level is high in Nigeria.We Blame govt for everything,forgeting that corruption Starts from the average man on the street to the top govt officials who loot taxes.The White dont publicise the trial of corrupt govt officials.There are so many Things in place to Check looting.The Banks Play a Key Role in reporting any fraudulent Transaction.In Nigeria ,we have Bankers cooperating with govt officials to loot the country and we keep shouting govt .Our judiciary is corrupt ,the Police is corrupt and cant investigate without bribes .Nigerian Problem is complex,Not only Our politicians .corruption will continue until we Put some tough measures in place .

We live in an age where Most of the Nigerian women are Not responsible .However my sincere apology to the good ones.Things are changing and marriage is No longer what IT used to be in the time of Our fathers.The load is getting heavier and Most men carry much load than they could.we have proud men WHO will rather carry the load than complain the load is too much ,we have women WHO cant Support their husband and will watch him struggle.we have women WHO will ASK the man to relinquish His authority in the Home If He wants her to Help or Support him.most men will Not Like to Lose their Respekt at Home and will rather die carrying load at Home .the Definition of marriage has Changed,the Feminist have Changed IT.To be balanced ,we also have irresponsible men WHO are Womanizer .The truth is that the modern day Woman will Tell you there IS No head in the home.we all have equal right ,so men Must dont deserve respect but Must earn IT by their Work and Money.i think in the nearest Future,people wont marry again.its already Happening ,people have children and Baby Mamas without marriage .i dont Support IT,but its reality
