|Business / Re: P&G To Dissolve Ground Operations In Nigeria, Revert To An Import-only Business by Eriokanmi: 11:27pm On Dec 06|
Dsimmer:How much do you think is enough to erect just one manufacturing plant? If any of those calling themselves billionaires in Nigeria should have just one of the P&G plants, he'd go bankrupt in a matter of months. They're worth billions of dollars. P&G is one of the topmost multinationals with branches in several countries of the world. Go to Oluyole Estate in Ibadan and see things.
When the raw materials sourced locally aren't there and are more expensive where available, what would they do? Those farmers supplying them the lemon used in producing vicks lemon plus according to my cousin who's one of their ogas, farmers were complaining that the chemical used in keeping the lemon green and control pests were too expensive cos of high fx rates. This complaint was constantly coming from farmers cos P&G always rejected their poor yields and the lemon was still very expensive despite this complaint. Now I believe what he said with this news. If P&G is getting their lemon cheaper and fresher from South Africa, why won't they go there? If they should embark on this course, many wouid lose their jobs and many local farmers would pack up and also send many out of jobs on their farmland

tsdarkside:My cousin worked at Procter and Gamble at Oluyole Estate in Ibadan for years and he was never paid in dollars. P&G never evaded tax. They contributed greatly to oyo state IGR and the FG at large. Their products were for Nigerian Market only. They got the lemon from Nigerian local farmers and made them multi millionaires by constantly patronising them. I remember a time P&G brought an improved yield of the lemon to the farmers from IITA to enhance their yields. P&G had enough money to cultivate lemon but never did, just to promote local sources of supply and create wealth among farmers in a way. They didn't export their products. I'm sure you know the popular vicks lemon plus. It's the product I'm talking about. Lemon peel is one of the ingredients.
You are one of the enemies of Nigeria guy. All of you will definitely bear the consequences of your defence of the indefensible soon.
How would these farmers growing lemon survive? Hope you know they have families and employees on their farmlands? Where would they go? What of those Nigerians working on the P&G plant? You're disgrace to humanity

These are the things that give the military courage to topple any civilian government and when it happens, the west would not hesitate to condemn it and begin imposing sanctions. I hope they're seeing this, amid the hardships in the land.
When buhari and his men toppled the government in the 80s, they cited corruption and reckless spending of the shagari government as the reason. They've started again. They don't learn from the past

As a former Labour leader, I've been expecting him to be non-partisan on the issues concerning Labour and their welfare cos I remember the obasanjo administration which he almost brought to a halt, until he made them do the needful and that was even one of the reasons edo people voted him cos talking of money, he had nothing. He wasn't also a popular candidate back then If he's now keeping quiet cos he's become a politician, it would be very unfortunate. . Even pdp governors were envying him.

|Romance / Re: My Lack Of Commitment To Women Is Killing Me Slowly by Eriokanmi: 12:49pm On Dec 06|
MikeofKd:Number one, women are the same all over the world, regardless of race or ethnicity so, you can't avoid their drama.
Secondly, you said women are too complicated to deal with, if I may put it right . Yes, even the most religous ones amongst them are wired this way, the slight difference is the fear of God in them. The truth is, women don't even understand themselves at times.
If you're looking for the best woman, you won't find one, I'm sorry. You may remain single if you don't feel like getting married, the bible supports it but you must not indulge in fornication. You remain as you are till you vacate this space but this is always difficult to do so, the best option is get married but pray very well before you rear your head cos you can't judge by how good-looking or nice a woman is. Na when she enter you go know the type of woman you marry. Sadly, this is the cause of all the divorce cases we see today. You see a woman, you think you don see wife without going spiritual to really know who she is. Our forefathers would consult an ifa in those days so they dont get it wrong. That's why their marriages lasted.
But we don't have to do that nowadays as we have an easier means of reaching out to God through prayers. Marriage is deeper than many think. Be convinced she's the right one and you'd be glad in the end.
The solution to a happy marriage is tolerance. Even if she's ranting, just tolerate her naggy manners. It doesn't make you a stupid man. When her head is cool, she'd be the one to apologise to you. But if you keep beating her each time. That won't make her to stop that habit, till you kill her one day and you end up at a place where you least expect to be.

AntiChristian:See the way this ignorant was turning the bible upside down? Shame on you! Did the poor girl who was stoned to death blaspheme GOD? Just sit down and Google what the girl said that led to her stoning, in case you were in another planet when this happened. At times, you just allow some things to pass as a christian. This country would have ceased to exist by now due to religous war. Thank God the way Christians view things that have to do with martyrdom.
Again, did the woman who protested the girl's killing blaspheme God? This is where you guys always end up making yourself laughing stocks when quiting bible verses. Smh!
Several Istraelites despised and spoke ill of moses, even said if his God couldn't save them, He should leave them in the land of Egypt. Did moses order their killings or stoning to death? People don't even say anything near this to Muhammed in this generation and the hell will be let loose. I dont need you to begin to differentiate between muhamed and moses in terms of holiness and character, including closeness to God. I leave you to do that. But had anyone insulted God Himself or ridiculed Him in anyway, their constitution and law of moses are clear.They'd do the needful to whoever did that.They've said worse things to moses yet, he didn't react in any deadly way. It's becaise he knew he wasn't God. God Himself had said it all, to the people of Istrael and unbelievers, that they must not have another god besides him so, if anyone now contravenes this, he/she should blame him or herself. Those Kings who ruled and worshipped idols faced the consequences and this also affected the generations they ruled over. Consequence for blasphemy God is clear, be it physical or spiritual. This has nothing to do with this case as reported and witnessed.

hopeforcharles:We never had a country but a composition of several nations. When the time is right we'd go our separate ways.
Just take a look, the constitution was formed by a group of selfish people. No regional representation, no debate or confab. They just sat together under one roof and wrote the constitution for several millions of Nigerians with hundreds of ethnic groups. No country does that and that's why everyone would want to go to power and have their sjare and leave.
No wonder the judiciary is behaving like they never went to school when dishing out judgement. Its because they knew we never had a constitution that suited our formation. Imagine the federal government disobeying court order but wants others to obey same .
I wasn't surprised when the NLC went ahead in their strike, despite the court order. The NLC said, since the same federal government was known for disobeying the court order, they lacked the legal right to restrain them too. Where in the world wouid this nonsense happen? Its because we're not a country and we never had a constitution. In a decent country, if anyone disobeys court order, including any arm of government, its jail straight. If the president is found culpable, he'd be dealt with, in line with the constitution of that country cos everything is clearly stated.

|Family / Re: How She Passed Away And Was Replaced In 2 Days by Eriokanmi: 4:58pm On Dec 05|
A good reason I always resigned every 2 years of employment in those days. Naija employers are mostly slave drivers. I never gave a damn. They'd be shedding crocodile tears each time I was summoned in a mgt meeting and be asking me to tell them why I was leaving and explain any challenges faced, which must have influenced my decision so they could improve on it and make me change my mind.
Solid 7 armed gangs came to my apartment on the eve of sallah. They took away the brand new tear rubber car which my employer bought for me back then.
Instead of my MD to first ask after my family and their safety during the invasion, he was busy asking me where and where did I stop on my way home from work that night and whether I informed the police immediately after they took the car away. Thank God, the car was found somewhere in Ogun state, parked, 2 days later. There was a tracker on it so the tracking company monitored and stopped it safely.
About a month later, I tendered my resignation. My MD knelt down, begging me to stay. By the time I explained, he was sober. Most Nigerian employers don't see their employees as part of their success stories rather, they feel they're doing their staff a favour by employing and paying them salary. Once the unexpected happen, they replace them immediately.

Khyrvxjzy:So, what happened to boko haram members who were de-radicalised and integrated into the society? Were ipobs captured also de-radicalised or neutralised? What of the bandits in the NW...have their activities stopped despise killing thousands of them? The government's biased way of handling this matter won't stop the problems. If only they can give room for peace, all the money being wasted on munition procurement could be spent on peace brokerage. I doubt they'd spend half of it.

|Crime / Re: ESN Second In Command Killed As Police Raid IPOB Camp In Aboh-Mbaise by Eriokanmi: 4:36pm On Dec 05|
remzytimer:I'm not ibo, mind you. I just proffered the solution to all these needless killings cos it won't stop, with this their approach. The everyday for the thieves and one day for the owner does not apply in this situation. Are the agitators thieves, boggling every home and property? We have Sunday igboho agitators here too.
Our govt should study how other countries managed this situation. Or do they think there are no agitators too in advanced countries? I was in America, schooling when California was agitating for a secession, texas too. It became worse after Obama became president. Scotland, same is happening in the UK and Spain. US presidents would keep harping on the State of the Union, being very strong and also ensuring it becomes stronger by addressing pertinent issues without bias. Both our leaders and their followers think in a myopic way each time an issue like this is being discussed.
The only thing they've not started doing is killings, I like the way they're praceful in their agitation yet, the government went and attacked them. I abhor killings from both sides cos It won't give room for peace among agitators. If you go to zamfara and katsina today, you'd experience a different country. Haven't the military killed and killed? Has it ever solved the problem? They keep adding up as bees.

Peace is the way. I urge the FG to release their leader and engage all stake holders in the truce talk. That's what I understand as a path to peace and not all these killings of ipob or fulani bandits. They'd only keep raging and reinforcing and one day...I hope bush meant won't catch the hunter. A few days back, the IGP said ipob should stop making police family orphans. This statement would make sense if only they sue for peace. Most of katsina schools are on compulsory holidays as we speak
Nigeria is the easiest country to rule but our leaders don't have the antidote to vices and agitations yet.

Tajbol4splend:Not even only that....the handout you bought carries some marks. Exam could be 55% while the handout is 30 and Test/CA is 15%. Anyone who buys the handout has scored 30% automatically. If you now struggled to score 40% in the exam, 30% from the handout and 10% from the CA, that's distinction already.
Education in Nigeria is for the highest bidder. No matter how hard you tried , if you didn't buy their handout, you'd never score an A. This is why I respect those with 2.2 and 3rd class more. The majority of them were first class and distinction materials. They must have been frustrated by the system to score low. In a decent and right environment, they always prove their mettle. We've heard of several of them here before on NL. I've seen a 2.1 graduate who failed our aptitude test woefully. Some couldn't even speak good English.

After all, OBJ was right. He recommended that they be sold but they kept using it as a conduit pipe to siphon the tax payers money all in the name of TAM. Recently, they deceived their gullible supporers, saying by December, our refineries would begin production. We're in that December already and they just burst their bubbles. They can only lie to us but can't lie to the outside world cos they know us much more than we kbow ourselves. Only God knows if these politicians are using juju on them cos its not normal for sane humans to be supporting evil, despite the obvious.
I was so happy that Sylva of a guy didn't win bayelsa election. Kudos to Jonathan , et al. These are the class of people ruling Nigeria, holding key positions in the apc-led administration.
Okay, what happened to the billions if dollars he commited into refurbishing pur refineries to make them saleable according to him? Have they now been sold after wasting billions of dollars which Nigerians cried and said was too much back then but they went ahead...what's the outcome? We will ever be architect of either our fortune or misfortune in life.

Thank you jare Erelu. Agba ko ni tan lorilę Its appalling how people can distort history, even in the face of realities. They've altered Wikipedia several times to suit their lies since the Oba had set the record straight, for whatever reasons.
I think why they had not attacked oba akiolu who once came to speak the truth was because he's too strong for them. You cannot distort history for political reasons. It's just like saying fulanis owned ilorin, no be craze be that? Yorubas owned and still owns ilorin, same as Lagos. Binis can't lay claim on ownership of the current lagos state. It's yorubaland till the end of time but that doesn't mean history would be turned upside down. The so called balogun of lagos, by the name Oshodi should tell us the truth, how his great grandfather coined Oshodin, an edo word to mean Oshodi just to seek relevance and ownership of lagos, same way the Dosunmu family claimed they owned lagos by changing Docemo to Dosunmu whats the meaning of Docemo or dosunmu, a white man's name or oshodin( oshodi) an edo word in yoruba?
They altered wiki almost every minute , haba! They even said Iga means gaa in yoruba . How is that related? Iga, idumagbo, idumota, idungantan, Eko, etc, are all edo words. Nobody is obtaining a trophy on top of this so everyone should rest.
I remember them saying tinubu hails from Lagos, despite the obvious. Ki lęfę fi gbogbo iyęn she? Even the pa jakande's family we belong isn't from lagos. We were originally from Igbomina in kwara. We won't lie on top of that cos the history is there. My granddad hailed from akoko side, a yoruba speaking town of northern part of edo state, just less than 2 miles away from isua akoko. I can't come out tomorrow to vie for any political office in lagos and lie, neither would i do same
Should edo people say make i come be governor. I can only claim to be from lagos by the virtue of birth and the fact that mama is from baba jakande's side.
