Business / Re: What Business Can I Start With 1 Million To Make 5k Daily? by godisablack(m): 12:29pm On Feb 22
I need the analysis.

EliteDude:
Then let me offer my 2cents.
Start a poultry business. (LAYERS).
At first you will need assistance from a faithfful and trust worthy manager.
With time, when the business picks, you can expand and even resign your day job.

It will take about 5-7 months before you start getting your return though.
Let me add this, as with any business, its not a bed of roses, but it is a very good business.

Start small, if you are interested, i could offer you help with cost and start up analysis, with my little 5 years experience.

Cheers!!!
Education / Re: Which Is The Cheapest Federal University In Nigeria Currently? by godisablack(m): 6:10am On Dec 24, 2019
laosy:
Don't mind all those saying 10k,12k, most of them graduated 5,10 years ago, there is no how you won't spend up to 100k in your first year in any federal school....Unilag is quite cheap I tell you, it's a bit hig the first year, you know the acceptance fee, registration fee, faculty and departmental registration and all, just budget around 100k for first year but the subsequent years is 16k for non science and 21k for science and languages..

200k or more actually

Religion / Revaluation Of Church And Tradition by godisablack(m): 2:17pm On Dec 15, 2019
I'm an ardent Christian. If you've known me too well you'd understand how rooted I am in things of God. I was and still a bonafide member of ACM. That said, let's not mistake this unusual assessment of our beliefs to any other thing aside what it is...REVALUATION!


Tradition is orderliness. It demands thorough observance of values, norms, culture etc. Tradition condemns all manner of sins. In Igboland, such sins are often called ARỤ. It may interest us to know that Tradition is as old as man. In as much as a lot of people have changed the definition of TRADITION to IDOLATRY. Tradition to the best of my knowledge is totally different from Idolatry. Idols are often invoked with powers by people who practice TRADITIONS. It's more like a representative of their god, 'chukwu' as called in Igbo.


Traditionalists speak peace, equity, growth, unity and many more. It's sad how the Westerners has succeeded in changing the beliefs of a lot of us. Every Blackman originates from traditional ancestors. We were traditionalists before anything else. The state of tradition in our grassroots cannot be completely wiped out. When a man is afflicted or is facing some problems in his life, they'd want to go and “jua ase”. When this happens they'll make sacrifices to appease the gods. These “ịjụ ase” is often advised by pastors from God. Some things are beyond mere prayers hence Traditional method are suggested. I scorn at people who think Traditional practices is fetish. The depth of TRADITIONAL PRACTICES is far beyond what people think it is.


On Church, I'm permitted to say that Church is Whiteman's perception of worship, because church was not a part of us until the Whites forced their god on us. A lot of things were changed by our so called “Churches”. Mind you! Church is different from God. Church is a family of God, established with the purpose of helping people grow, survive, live righteously...Church helps you to be in constant check. In church you have the opportunity to feel peace, secured and freedom. According to Acts 11 vs 19-end, when the early disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. If you take out time to read the whole ACTS of Apostles you'll understand fully the intent of setting up Church. Are these purposes still intact? Are they barely met by Christians or Pastors per se? You can't give a sinner Bible when all he needs is food. The word of God is truth and life. Is the Church of God living in truth? We now leave out truth in teaching the word of God. To understand and worship God without prejudice you have to remove common sense. We, Christians contribute immensely to the growth of church, but still when the development starts to manifest we still pay gravely to enjoy what is ours in the right sense. Missionary schools and hospitals are way costlier than even privates. The former is no longer the case. No sane person has problem with God except that the original doctrines of churches are been abused..


Everything that exist has its exceptions. Even in the smallest settings there exist extremism. Why are there so many churches in our societies today if not because some feel this people are not doing it right? Every church with their own interpretations of the scripture. People get robbed willfully in our churches today. It's true we receive blessings when we give. But hold on! What if I tell you that if you give to the right person or course at the right time you still will get the exact blessings as when you give to the church. We give according to the directions of the Holy spirit. I personally gets turned off when all pastors speak is money, money, money! Church is now business. Even the Bible mentioned that in the last days there'd be false prophets. We buy Holy water, holy hanky, holy oil, holy Bible, holy everything. Church has conformed the gullible many to act blindly. And when you dare to speak you'll face emotional blackmail from our esteemed believers. Now, when you have a problem you still have to consider going to church or healing in the comfort of your Chapel. I'm not saying Church is not doing anything, but Church is not helping the needy as demanded by God. Barnabas and Ananias were killed for stealing from God. They were meant to share equally their proceeds but they thought it wise to keep some for themselves and was killed instantly by the Holy spirit for lying. How many of our Churches are living this way? Why are their beggars in our churches? Why do Church find it hard to give too?



What if I tell you that Churches are refined Traditional practices? I think it's high time Blackman stopped seeing traditional practicers as evil. They are not! Except the few who are abusing their calls. Let God judge them. In my opinion, evil is anything that affects the wellbeing of people in one way or the other. If Tradition doesn't contradict what you believe, then I don't see it as evil. Some of our local herbalists, orthopedist, seers who we often run to get their powers from god. They don't go to church but still they help humanity. They are called by god too. Why do y'all fear traditional men? It's not because they are bad... It's because they don't take sides, they stand against falsehood. They know what you are and what you are capable of doing. Pastors function likewise, but in defined way.



We even have White wedding and Black wedding (Traditional marriage) why do we always want to fit in. We are black, we are local, we are unique and that's our pride. That's what we stand for.


god is in your mind (Rom10 vs 10), you can't tell me that I don't know God because I'm not orthodox like normal people do. I know God and he answers me. I pray too. Church should not be used to measure anybody's wholeness. Church going is rather optional(Ecl 7 vs 16). Let the Holy spirit lead us. I'm off!

The opposition should please allow the government to work.

The opposition are the reason there is no constant power supply.
The opposition are the cause of unemployment in my country.
The opposition are the reason people lament about the government on the streets.
The opposition are the ones obstructing the capture of kidnappers, bandits and killer herdsmen.
The opposition are the reason most federal highways are undrivable.
The opposition are the ones luring young Nigerians to go in search of imaginary greener pasture in foreign lands.

The opposition keeps lying about our leaders.
The opposition will not stop hiding the achievements of the government so that we won't see them or appreciate them.


The opposition should allow the ruling party work.
They are the ones preventing the development of our country.

Infact because of how bad the opposition ran down the country when they were in power, it is now unfixable.
That is why the job of our leaders is to tell us that our leaders are not the problem, the opposition is.

We elected them ONLY to remind us that the opposition is the problem.

A good thread,but then locations comes into play when talking about speed.

I use glo services and have come to notice that on the island, its services are superb compared to some areas in lagos.
To enjoy glo services you have to upgrade your sim to 4glte and have a 4glte enabled phone.

I rate glo the best for now in terms of affordable data, browsing speed and crazy bonuses.

Buy a glo 4glte sim and enjoy. ..




GOD BLESS YOU FOR THIS COMMENT. I WILL RATE 5 STAR EVERY DAY. IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME THEY WILL GET THEIR NETWORK STABILITY TO TOP NOTCH. MY LOCATION IS 100% GLO SUPPORTED. IT RAINED HEAVILY SINCE MORNING TODAY. I WAS SURPRISED HOW MY NETWORK IS STILL STEADY UPON THE WEATHER. I HAD TO SCREEN GRAB MY SCREEN OUT OF JOY. DOWNLOAD 100MB IN SECONDS.

Health / Who Is To Be Blamed?(a Poem Dedicated To All Sickle Cell Carriers) by godisablack(m): 9:02am On Jun 19, 2019
Yellow eyes, fading white teeth
Hair Dreadlocked, forced smile
Was all I could see on her face
As her mum was smiling back at her

I looked closer
Her legs were thin too
Belly swollen like a two months pregnancy
This baby is in real pain
I whispered to myself

I tried not to look again
But, I can't
The young girl is not happy
She cannot be happy
She has learnt pain at this tender age
I cried gently.
And I left.

Hence, came this thought
God why would you allow such?
Is it a punishment to her?
What has the baby done to face this
Suffering at this early stage?


Could it be the parents fault?
Were they meant to be punished through her?
But the baby is not guilty
Or is she?

This time, I was thinking too much
Life is unfair
Throwing anything at us
Nobody is really safe

Who is to be blamed?
The parents? for not thinking?,
The baby? For what?
Life? For hosting this suffering?
Or is it God for allowing the suffering?
I cried again and left....

This is not the land we used to know
A land where peace and unity do flow
A land whose independence is in dependence
Her progeny languish in moral decadence

This is not the land we used to know
A land of once beauty which glow
A land that has sold her treasure for pleasure
A land that has forgotten the strength in her nature
