|Politics / Re: Nigerian Navy Arrests Norwegian Ship Stealing Crude Oil In Nigeria by HarryDuce(m): 11:32am On Aug 20|
Haykings02:I never said it was cleared sir. But it was also able to get to the field in a period of incessant oil theft.
"The vessel arrived Akpo Field midnight on 7 Aug 22 with the obvious intention of lifting crude oil within the Field, albeit, illegally. This was, however, spotted by the Nigerian Navy Maritime Domain Awareness facility which probed the legitimacy of the Very Large Crude Carrier’s presence in the Total SA operated Akpo Field."
What are the odds?
|Politics / Re: Islam Has Nothing To Do With Terrorism In Nigeria by HarryDuce(m): 3:36am On Aug 20|
You're right but I'd like to point something out. In how many countries are Muslims not the major casualties of Islamic terrorism? That fact is hardly peculiar to Nigeria. A lot of Muslims share in some of the views of these "un-Islamic" terrorists. One way or another, Islam is always in the equation. Unwillingness to face issues as they are would make these destructive acts and mindsets difficult to tame.

So an unauthorised super tanker that was not cleared to be in the area somehow found it's way to Akpo field. An OIL TANKER.
The navy and NNPC just. . . Let it? When oil theft is on the all time high?
Didn't the navy mark zero cases of piracy for the first time in 30 years a few days back? How then was the oil tanker able to gain access UNHINDERED?
Thank God for Equatorial Guinea, at least we get to hear of it before it's pushed under the rug.
This country is truly on autopilot.

Kanu and IPOB should focus on themselves and let others do the same.

|Family / Re: Is Cheating Enough Reason To Leave A Legal Marriage ? by HarryDuce(m): 3:26pm On Apr 03|
Yes. In some rare situations I'd say it depends. Every one has their threshold of tolerance but for me, it's the end.
Lalami3232:I can't count the number of times I've seen this "men are polygamous in nature" trope. A lot of men who say this don't actually want to marry more women. They use this line as an excuse to sleep with as many women and girls as possible without the responsibility that comes with marriage. If you are so bothered about maintaining African traditions, why don't you marry more women?
Can you care for them or it'll be just sex and vibes?
People marry two or more wives everyday in Nigeria, it's still a thing.
|Travel / Re: Longest Super Highway In Akwa Ibom Nears Completion by HarryDuce(m): 11:03am On Apr 02|
9japride:Lol which Dubai? With how much money? The money Nigeria as a whole makes, is not up to a quarter of what the Dubai government makes over the same time period. Before you compare Nigeria to any other part of the world, know that Nigeria is very POOR in every sense of the word.
Yes, the government is corrupt and thieving but please, don't have high expectations from what is not there. In the past, I used to criticize the amount budgeted for road construction in the Niger Delta with much scrutiny when compared to the amount budgeted for the same length of road in the north that would be significantly cheaper. Guess what? I still scrutinize but I don't compare because quality road construction is a laudable feat in the south. Are you familiar with the terrain of most parts of the Niger Delta? Peace.
|Politics / Re: Can You Vote For A Woman As President Of Nigeria? by HarryDuce(m): 10:25am On Apr 02|
Of course. If she's mentally sound, emotionally intelligent and physically capable, why shouldn't I?
Nigerian women and Nigerian men grow up in the same environment, they're no different, so I don't expect any miracle.
planetx:The post asks about presidential position. What does that have to do with marriage and sex? These things you mention don't sound like something one (especially a Nigerian) should make a primary objective in choosing a leader. China, Japan and Korea also experience low birth rates without practicing western style rulership in all its forms especially China. This should tell you that people are more concerned with taking charge of every aspect of their lives than they are about fvcking and birthing like rats. Is the economy no more important? Standard of living? Germany did not stop being powerful at the emergence of Angela Merkel. They're still the largest economy in Europe. Every one remembers Margaret Thatcher not for propagating "female empowerment" (which she was criticised for not doing) or "emasculating men", but for her uncompromising politics like many other men in history.

Alexgeneration:Their fuel is relatively cheap because they steal the oil. If they're recognised and made to function legally, operations cost will rise.

|Crime / Re: Kpofire: DPO Apprehended For Operating Illegal Refinery In Rivers(pics) by HarryDuce(m): 3:30pm On Jan 18|
baralatie:One major reason they cannot be given license to operate is their mode of operation.
No safety protocol.
They steal the oil by bursting up pipelines. The oil from the pipelines don't stop flowing in most locations after they've been burst open, they continuously pollute the earth and waterways.
They also don't drill the earth for the oil.
Despite these things, a few modular refineries that were able to meet some safety standards and other criteria have been licensed to operate in the past few years.

|Politics / Re: Between Wike And Rotimi Amaechi Who Would Make A Better President by HarryDuce(m): 8:30am On Dec 12, 2021|
For the fact that we have been inhaling soot since 2016 is enough grounds for me to go with Amaechi even though he is part of a clueless government that sometimes acts just like Wike.
Amaechi tried in road construction but Wike is better in that area. In every other aspect, Amaechi takes the cake by a significant margin.

|Politics / Re: A Wealth Of Sorrow: Why Nigeria’s Abundant Oil Reserves Are Really A Curse by HarryDuce(m): 8:33pm On Nov 09, 2021|
Nigeria has never been "prosperous", "on the right path" or "organised" in her life time. When talking about oil curse, note that without the oil, things would've taken a sinister path instead. Crude oil has been more of a blessing than a curse regardless of the present situation of things.
Nigeria is also not petrol dollar "rich". Compare the population of countries feeding off crude oil to that of Nigeria and you'll notice that they're nowhere close to ours and crude oil has been our life line for a little over 50 years. The question is what has the North, West and East been doing all these years?

TarOrfeeek:Gas flaring from Illegal bunkering IS the cause of the soot in Port Harcourt and environs. Their activities are not hidden.
You just spoke like a government agent that is hiding their ineffectiveness in curbing the soot issue by deflecting.
Or are you into oil theft?

Abuja by a small margin.
Lagos heat and bustle is not for me. I've seen enough of Port Harcourt as it is and although it's alright (the weather is nice compared to the other two) I prefer Abuja. The major downsides of Abuja I can think of are the fake life and poor transport system.
|Family / Re: Life As An Albino (my Experience) by HarryDuce(m): 1:28pm On Sep 28, 2021|
Not to disregard your experience, but I feel it's a localised something. I know some people can be major d!cks sometimes by mocking them --their eyes mostly-- but avoiding them and treating them badly is not something that I have noticed in my part of Nigeria. Almost no one bats an eyelid coming across an albino. They're given a cursory glace and forgotten just as quickly like everyone else.

chigoziri2403:Not at all different, although it depends on what you consider different. Kagame is one of the reasons there is constant bloodshed and violence in the DRC. He's just as hypocritical and vicious as the Congo rebels. It's funny people only focus on the things he has achieved in his country and ignore completely his bad side.
