These kids saying nonsense are as dumb as they get, always assuming life is easy.
Do you think the increments at the upper levels is any different?
So what you're saying is no civil servant should get married. Instead remain single and patronize brothels till they get a breakthrough? Is that how to build an economy?
If the places you're japa-ing to paid so poorly, will immigrants be going there? Why hasn't your so-called inflation drowned them?

dgitrader:
It was very fast then, but anything less than 3hrs is a bit an exaggeration. I did the trip countless times with my dad in the late 80s on Passat and later 505. There were several active toll-gates and even Mobile police checkpoints.
More over travelling was great joy then, who did that in a mad haste? With all the several fruits, palmy and bushmeat stops littered along ore? Except you were a 505 ambulance
You just confirmed what the OP said. 505 makes it in 3 hours, but the Benz he was specific about made it in 2!
I've done that trip in recent years During the End SARS. No checkpoints at cruise speed and I made it in 3 hours.
Most people don't know the joys of traveling due to multiple checkpoints on our road.

Politics / Re: Ex-Education Minister, Kenneth Gbagi Is Dead by In4matic: 12:05pm On May 05
airsaylongcome:


Golden Tulip Hotel is an international brand and definitely not owned by Ken Gbagi. He may own the Warri franchise. But definitely not the brand

The Phone plaza at PTi was formerly Woodridge hotel built under the high tension so the then Gov. Ordered it be evicted. Gbagi was duly compensated with which he built THE GOLDEN TULIP one on the opposite side of the road.

Only for him to come back some years later to RECLAIM and remodel the former Woodridge rooms into shops which is the phone plaza today.

Then the Woodridge car park is where he built his filling station, all under HIGH TENSION.
Restraining order from court were ignored. The court bailiff who came to serve him had to flee for his life.

All complaints seized when he brought the then Gov Okowa to commission the filling station!
Politics / Re: Minimum Wage: Labour Fires Back At Governors by In4matic: 8:52am On May 05
Gajagojo:
Salary level is not a right
It has a direct relationship to productivity
In most cases
The work you do. MUST generate income out of which your employer pays you
If you own a business you know this.

Minimum wage applies not only to government but to businesses too

How many business owners take home one million at the end of the month

The money must come from SOMEWHERE
If I own a suya business or a noodle business how do I pay 600000 a month

The money to pay salaries must come from SOMEWHERE

You got your facts backwards, wages is infact a right of a worker. Since the abolition of slavery, it is an established law that a worker MUST be paid
If your business is not PRODUCTIVE, then you have no business employing workers.

Again, there's a minimum number of workers (50> workers) an organization requires to operates that'll make it mandatory to pay the minimum wage.

So it doesn't apply to the Suya man as you put it.

So many of us saying it's not realistic have not looked at the issues critically.

The purpose of the proposed living wage is to ensure the lowest worker, his/her spouse and 4 dependants can live a basic life without the need to seek extra.

Now, with that said, let's really break down the estimate for food(N270,000):
270,000÷30 days= N9,000 per day for 6 persons.
Meaning N1,500 per person daily
Or N500 per meal.
Is that too much?

Next is transportation (N110,000).
Unless we are lying to ourselves, a junior worker or senior worker all pay the same bus fare, the same as school children.
Let's break it down.
N110,000÷22 days= 5,000 per day
Working father: N2,000 (to and fro).
Market mother: N1,000 (to and fro)
4 school kids: N500×4= 2000 daily
Is that too much?

Factor in Rent, Clothing, medication, utilities and you'll see this family is only just surviving.
This won't lead to inflation, rather stability in the economy because, money will flow again as purchasing power has increased.
It is a welcome development because only a government that is genuinely concerned about making wealth will be able to pull this off.

Politics / Re: Nigerian Workers Release Breakdown Of Proposed ₦‎615,000 Minimum Wage by In4matic: 10:53am On May 04
This is the solution to the Problem in the civil service.

If Nigerians are not tired of having to part with bribes whenever we go to any government parastatal ( be it Court, licensing office, passport office, NEPA, police, Nafdac name it. The story is the same)

Aren't we all tired of seeing policemen at checkpoints collecting 100 Naira?


Since the government isn't paying a living wage, the citizens have to pay for it.

Let the government wake up to their responsibility so the citizens can breathe.

So many paid agents on this platform who tactfully avoid the main issues.
What are the main issues?
1. To have a labour force awake to their duties.
2. Checkmate workers always asking for bribes.
3.To arrest the brain drain in the country.

The purpose of the proposed living wage is to ensure the lowest worker, his/her spouse and 4 dependants can live a basic life without the need to seek extra.

Now, with that said, let's really break it down:
N270,000÷30 days= N9,000 per day for 6 persons.
Meaning N1,500 per person daily
Or N500 per meal.

An unemployed person who engages in a trade or learns a skill is sure of patronage because people can afford his services.

All these kids on this platform still eating "Mummy-thank you" cannot understand because all they see is the lump sum.

Very childish and shallow reasoning especially coming from a sopposedly married man who should be more experienced and mature!

I'm happy you acknowledged, his being more experienced. Yet he's dishing out knowledge that seem not to make sense.

I guess if it made sense, it'll be common knowledge, so obvious to every young man like you.

I have learned not to try to teach your kind anymore. BITTER experience will do that for you. And trust me, it will

Education / Re: Longest Notes In Secondary School? by In4matic: 6:51am On Mar 10
Most who say biology and chemistry are obviously Science students.

Those who say Geography and Economics are basically Commercial students.

Those advocating for Government, History and Literature definitely are Arts students.

As Someone who had the privilege of doing ALL, I tell you the longest in order of length.

1. HISTORY definitely takes number 1 slot. No history student ever finishes the questions in waec in one booklet.

2. BIOLOGY. Don't be deceived. Unless you were playing in secondary school, Only you and you alone will understand your different biology notes.
Not your parents.
Not your siblings.
At times, not even your classmates!
Biology was the proverbial elephant. Everyone's note was totally different.

3. GEOGRAPHY. Chai!!! All I can say, those who used that red bound textbook Goh Cheh Leong can confirm.

Those who didn't use the textbook would't know what God did for them.

SOSinNigeria:


You made strong points, but you didn't offer a solution out of this quagmire.

How do we discuss amicably and reach a consensus towards going our separate ways?

I have really thought deeply about Nigeria and came to the realization that what keeps us apart is greater than what binds us together. We are better off as independent neighbors than being together with such crazy antagonism for one another.

I don't see any easy solution.
It's either we collectively agree to become a nation, willingly agreeing to make huge sacrifices that'll get Nigeria working.
Or,

The alternative is a volatile break-up which will involve heavy losses to life and property on every side.

Both options aren't palatable to the average Nigerian including me and you because we're not ready to make that level of sacrifice (Sacrifices that'll involve paying with life and limb).
Until we reach that point, Nigeria isn't going anywhere

So here we'll remain, chasing our tails.

Please there is oil every part of nigeria now ,as at the last check the oil discovered in bauchi, borno and Lagos

Oil was discovered as far back as 1985 or thereabouts in the Chad basin.

If you stop to wonder why it was kept under wraps till now you'll begin to understand what I am saying.
Politics / Re: Why Share A Country Since Nigerians Hate Each Other With Passion? by In4matic: 11:22pm On May 24, 2023
The answer to your question can be summarized into one word: OIL!!!

A more detailed answer; Nigeria being a British creation coincidentally possesses diverse economic resources.
However, she has consistently been ruled by largely tribal serfs who designed the nation as a unitary state.
So what this implies is that whoever sits atop this veritable MMM has access to stupendous wealth such as he'll never have been able to access as a tribal ruler.

Nigeria's problem is one thing only Patriotism, or the lack of it.
We did not learn how to be Nigerians before we became Nigerians.

The Brits were not interested in grooming us to be patriotic;

The Early political leaders were not interested in following an example of patriotism;
The religious leaders are least interested in raising patriotic followers. Their only interest is in their religion and how to make the most of it.

The average person is trying to get what he can from the system to cater for himself, his family, his kinsmen and his tribe.

There you have it.
