Autos / Re: CCP Shipping by iykrion(m): 5:20am On Feb 18, 2020
CCP and the owner Yemi Adegboyega are the very dishonest! They steal clients’ goods. I sent a Toyota Sienna loaded with house hold items on July 12th of 2019 because Yemi of CCP told me that they are shipping on July 27th, but my goods didn’t get to Nigeria until Jan 2020 (six months after). CCP and Yemi charged for me for six months storage in the US whereas it was their fault for not shipping my items as promised. They lost the Van’s title and charged me for the replacement among other spurious and fraudulent charges. As if those ain’t enough, some of my items were missing from the Van notwithstanding that I paid for a space in a container. Yemi of CCP told me that shipping in a container was $1300 but I was surprised to see $1600 in the invoice.
CCP also charged me additional N270,000 for storage in Nigeria notwithstanding that I picked up my vehicle same week it arrived their warehouse in Nigeria. The vehicle was damaged while in the custody of CCP and when I called to complain, Yemi blocked me off. I am gathering signatures of those that have been scammed by Yemi and CCP, this must not be allowed to continue. DO NOT PATRONIZE CCP if you want to maintain peace of mind!

So much anger! Well, I'm already married. I am only concerned about the brain drain that has kept us underdeveloped. I didn't say that people shouldn't follow their dreams. With time I will be understood, now tempers are high. I'm sorry if I did offend some people by my comments. No insult was intended.

I always respect everyone. No one is a kid, you got your story I got mine. It's not how far but how well.....sometimes we don't recount our age because it's nothing without achievement. What do you called escape route? Is it coming to US, studying, looking for job and stay back or coming to US on F1 and not attending school at all? If the first is your escape route, then US govt won't bother giving F1 visa to any nationals...... Abeg! I've long evading exchange of words on this thread.

FYI, I graduated from the University in 2003 and did my first MA in Strategic Studies in 2007. So, I am not looking for an escape route. So, u can see that I am not a child as u may assume.

Me: Sure! Here pls
VO: (After studying the I20), you are going to University of Massachusetts to study Peace & Conflict Studies, what do u intend to do with this degree?

Me: I will
VO: Where do u work and how long?
Me: I told him.

Me: Sure, (I gave him the bank statements)

VO: Why then did u take the TOEFL test?
Me: For the purpose of this interview, I understand that you require it
VO: Oh! That's not correct, it is only on very few instances that it may be demanded
Me: Ok. I only wanted to be on d safe side
VO: How many schools did u apply to?
Me: 3 in the US (named them) & 1 in Nigeria (named it)
VO: Why 1 in Nigeria?
Me: To cushion the effect of visa denial
VO: Oh! Ok! (laughs), go to the address on this paper and pick up ur visa on Wednesday.
Me: Thanks a lot!

Congrats bro

Thanks bro! That's good to hear. I saw some posts that purely sounds desperate. At the US Embassy in Lagos, I saw so many many people that are not really prepared to study, but feel that an F1 visa is a gateway to 'escape poverty'. I just pray we get our priorities right.

Is there anybody going to/studying in UMass Lowell here?

Politics / Re: How Philip Emeagwali Lied His Way To Fame by iykrion(m): 9:06pm On Oct 22, 2010
[b]Pay attention to the YouTube article "Philip Emeagwali - A fraud confirmed" and you will discover an attempt to discredit an icon. As regards Saharareporters, a sane mind knows that nothing meaningful can be found on that website (only cheap gossips). All those who believed the fraud story should read below what Donita Brown said about the whole sad story.

"What Philip Emeagwali claimed over 22 years, on http://www.youtube.com/emeagwali and on http://emeagwali.com/ is that he “theorized” the Internet as a hyperball and reprogrammed “AN INTERNET” - not “the internet” – as a hypercube supercomputer. What CNN and TIME called him is "A FATHER" and "one of the fathers," not the father. He also acknowledged on several videotaped lectures also posted at http://www.youtube.com/emeagwali that the internet has many fathers, mothers as well as aunts and uncles.

Specifically, he claimed he reprogrammed 65,536 subcomputers to compute as a supercomputer and to communicate as an internet that sends and receives answers via emails to and from 65,536 unique email addresses, each a unique string of sixteen zeroes and ones.

There was only one such machine in 1989. It only allowed one user at a time and therefore only one full time programmer. Philip Emeagwali was the only full time programmer on it. According to the Wall Street Journal (October 4, 2010) which also reported Philip Emeagwali’s discovery in June 1990, a similar supercomputer costs 1.32 BILLION dollars.

That 1989 supercomputer, that is an internet, performed his 3.1 billion calculations per second that former president Bill Clinton extolled in this video:

Donita Brown


NOTE:

Neither him nor I has read what's been misunderstood. He will need time complete his present committments and read what's been written and respond over the coming weeks and months. When in doubt, stick with the facts: 65,536 subcomputers, 3.1 billion calculations, 1.32 billion dollars and what he said on videotape, not what a friend of a friend said."[/b]

You once defended Ehindero by claiming that his plots of land inter alia were "gifts" from friends and associates.
Now, you are asking if gifts are unethical or not. Remember I once admonished you not to throw stones because you live in a glass house. Are you this STUPID?

Politics / Re: 419 And Nigerian Ethnicities by iykrion(m): 11:14am On Jan 30, 2008
@BIGB1,
This is a complete solecism coming from you. Need I remind you that anybody can bear any name to carry out crime?Remember when Mrs Iyabo Obasanjo turned to Mrs Daminola Akinlawon, just to conceal her identity.
When you talk about '419' one thing should come to mind, and that is anonymity. You don't see your proposed business partner eyeball to eyeball.

Therefore, the names don't count. I will consider this spurious correlation of yours as one done without proper thinking of the magnitude of it's effects.

Don't incite ethnicism here, because people will take you to the cleaners. Do you know that there's no amount of loot from your supposedly '419ers' of Igbo extraction that will equall the $12bn oil windfall that IBB cornered during his tenure? Let me quickly state that I'm not in support of fraud no matter where it emanates from.

It seems that you and Mamajama are only interested in causing confusions. Why this ulterior motive of yours?
Politics / Re: The Babangida Government by iykrion(m): 10:28am On Jan 30, 2008
Mr. Mamajama,

I think you should channel your energy towards laundering the battered image of Mr. Sunday Gabriel Ehindero, rather than dissipating it on spurious statements.

In case you don't know, the Fed. Govt, has already instituted a probe into the PEF which your Ehindero pilfered from

I just can't get why you keep running from pillar to post. I only told you that those who live in glass houses must - as a matter of safety - not throw stones. This is a wise counsel. Pls accept it.

Secondly, I've got no ties of consanquinity with IBB. I only respect him as an ex-president, just the same way I regard Ehindero as an ex-IGP.

Once again do not rest on your oars, as regards your improved written english. I still find some mistakes here and there. But on the average I commend your effort to write better. I score you 35%.

Finally, I take no graft, everybody must not emulate Ehindro.

Cheers!

If I was you i will tell IBB to stop talking cause every time he opens his mouth SHIT comes out and that shit stinks.
slowpoke

1. Your warped mind makes you believe everything, including a false story about yourself.

2. I am an Igbo and not an Hausa. Therefore, IBB couldn't have been my biological father as your uneducated mind tells you.

its the same military protocols that let him to bestowe ABACHA on Nigerians in a tactics to cover his lootings.

And its military protocols that makes him funded OBJ's election in essence he gave us OBJ as you classified a disaster to mankind. lol

so tell me one good thing that IBB did as a Nigerian?

The italicised items suggest that you should improve on your written english.

IBB gave us OBJ and OBJ gave us EHINDERO which reign was catastrophic. Logically, Mamajama benefited from IBB indirectly - through Ehindero.

Therefore, if Ehindero performed well as you claim, you will agree with me that it is one ''good thing'' that IBB did as a Nigerian.

When I was younger, I was taught that those who reside in glass houses should avoid the throwing of stones. Mr, Mamajama, you live in a glass house, so don't throw stones!

You need understanding to perceive the things that be; comparing Anini and Ibori is an absurdity.

I was only infering that everybody has those who believe in him, no matter how bad others will portray him. That's why I asked if you are sure that he has no case to answer, as regards the accusation against him.

In the past, people supported Anini because they benefited from his exploits. Now, people are supporting Ibori because of their selfish interests.

Finally, coming to the juxtapositioning of both men, Anini deprived people forcefully and Ibori deprived people surreptitiously. I find nothing preposterous about my position on this issue.

Thank you!
