Who allowed non-farmers to infiltrate the programme? If not the corrupt officials of the apex
Bank that won’t do their due diligence, and also politicians with ulterior motives.

Best believe, the true farmers are the ones that made over 150 billion repayment back, others are the ones screaming “it’s part of our national cake”. So sad where we are headed in this clime.

I think you process words fast in your head and then in turn you blab and stutter when talking.

Start by slowly processing your thoughts, and then see if there’s an improvement.

May or may not work. Good luck anyways


Education / Re: What Secondary School Did You Attend? by helphelp: 5:11pm On Feb 05, 2021

Thank you, sir!

The head boy I met in the year 2000 was Olaolu.

Nice. It means he’s 2000/2001 set
Education / Re: What Secondary School Did You Attend? by helphelp: 2:58pm On Jan 19, 2021


School Name: Government College Lagos (GCL)

Location: Eric Moore Road, Surulere.

My Time in The School: 2000 - 2006


My memory of GCL, an all-boys school, is filled with nostalgia. The school was a great citadel of learning, with much things to be proud of. Learning and extracurricular activities were of good standards. I could still remember how we, the JSS 1 students, feared our Head Boy (Senior Olaolu AKA Senior Almighty) as though he was a god. He was the Head Boy in 1999/2000, I think. Nwobodo Francis, an SS 2 student, was the Time Keeper.
The junior students, especially my classmates, held our senior prefects with high reverence. Many of them flogged the junior students for a living.

The teachers made learning unforgettable and to most of the students, the experience was worthwhile. I could still remember a few of the several teachers though...

Mr. Aromire AKA Fako, was the strict Mathematics teacher we could not stop loving.

Mr. Afolabi was the Principal that was hardly seen in Public.

Mrs. Alaja Brown was the talkative English teacher.

Mr. XXXXX (I cannot recall his name at the moment) was the Physical Education teacher who never failed students in tests and examinations.

Mr. Benson was the tribalistic English teacher.

Mr. Faleti was the ever-serious Physics teacher that never separated himself from his long cane. Anytime I see dat man, I don pick race o!

Mrs. Eze was the motherly Home Economics teacher. She would spend 70% of her teaching time to advise her students. We were like her children.

Mrs Okeowo was the always-smiling woman who taught us Physics. She was smiling, even when teaching, performing practicals, flogging, eating, sleeping etc.

Mr. Oresanya was our Chemistry teacher. He's the most wicked teacher to ever walk the Earth. Mr. Oresanya na wicked man. Mr. Oresanya too wicked.

There was a cordial relationship between the students and some of the teachers. Student life was an awesome experience. I could write a million-page book on what life was like in GCL 2000-2006.

Nice write-up. But I was the head boy 99/2000 set. You probably meant 2000/2001 set

Nairaland / General / Re: Nigeria @ 59; Laurels Of A Third World Country by helphelp: 11:20am On Oct 01, 2019
It is no longer news that after 59 years of independence, Nigeria has carved a niche for herself in the comity of nations as one whose remarkable feats in areas of corruption, poverty, mismanagement of resources, political instability, insecurity and banditry stands out

Brutalities and fatalities remain a recurring feature on the nation’s political scene with several unresolved crimes littering the landscape.

With a Human Development Index of 0.5 Nigeria prides herself as one of the most unlivable countries in the world, a feat it achieved courtesy of its government doggedness in maintaining the high rate of banditry, kidnapping and other vices hoisting the Nation’s flag in the misery index.

Nigeria’s strides in the aspect of corruption is also worthy of emphasis, the giant of Africa is a giant indeed as one of the most corrupt countries in the world.

In Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, Nigeria proudly occupies the 144th position among 180 evaluated countries.
Another feather was added to Nigeria’s cap when she overtook India as the poverty capital of the world in the World Data Lab’s Global Poverty Ranking.

Global poverty projections released by The Brookings Institution in 2018, based on data from the World Poverty Clock, showed that Nigeria is now home to the largest population of people living in extreme poverty, with 87 million citizens living on less than $2 a day

This is a position it seeks to retain till the year 2030 as Nigeria will be home to no fewer than 110 million people living in extreme poverty if she is able to sustain the current trajectory

In 2016, when the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) era started, Nigeria accounted for just over 60 percent of global poverty. Today, it is over 70 percent. By 2030, it could be close to 90 percent. Isn’t it an honour that Nigeria remains at the frontier of leading the world to extreme poverty by 2030?

Based on the aforementioned, the signs of Nigeria’s leadership successes are now even more glaring as nearly one hundred million Nigerians are in danger of falling into extreme poverty by 2022. This startling revelation implies that despite being the largest oil producer in Africa, Nigeria is unable to translate its oil wealth into rising living standards for its growing population.

The recent cases of xenophobic attack in South Africa and Nigeria’s commendable discreet responses are pointers to the fact that the country is highly revered in the international community, needless to mention the respect accorded her passport in embassies and high commissions across the world.

In education, Nigeria has become the perfect example for other countries of the world to emulate for qualitative dissemination of knowledge, suffice is it to say, that graduates of Nigeria’s institution are leading their contemporaries in innovations, inventions and discovery, Nigeria’s robust network of cyber-criminals gives credence to this claim.

Nigeria deserves some accolades for a nation with a life expectancy of less than 55 years to have survived 59 years of peaceful turbulence, this would not have been possible but for the dexterity of her political gladiators, worthy of mention is the military junta whose incursion made a remarkable positive impact on Nigeria’s economic fortunes.

The citizen’s contribution to national under-development is also noteworthy. Nigerians are reputable for their high level of tax compliance, patriotism and civil obedience. Although Nigeria’s national anthem and pledge have become a sort of ceremonial poetry, it is obvious that Nigeria is poised for greatness.

While one is tempted to conclude that better days are now behind, the possibility of rapid positive change cannot be denied. With the right orientation and attitude, the Nigeria of everyone’s desire is possible. However, to achieve this, a sense of nationalism and patriotism needs to be birthed.

Nigeria needs to rejig her current system of governance and assess the workability of her constitution. There is need for national re-orientation to restore citizen’s trust in the conundrum called ‘Nigeria’.

A renewed industrialization drive is also necessary to cater for the teeming unemployed youths the country currently boasts of as well as to put Nigeria on the global roadmap for development.

Finally, Nigeria cannot afford to keep celebrating the production of pencils and toothpicks in a world of artificial intelligence and blockchain technology.

Some people still use typewriters in higher institutions here to study (practical classes)
