Pictures please.

Vipers are very dangerous, venomous and slow poke.

Hope you all now know how to identify a venomous snake.

The belly linings running to its tail is not broken, but single linings.

Hence, it is a venomous snake.



Politics / Re: Reasons Jimi Agbaje Will Win Lagos State Governorship Contest by jigawatts(m): 10:54pm On Jan 22, 2019

Since the commencement of the 2019 electioneering season, I have deliberately refrained myself from making any political prophecy or projections even when I am clearly aligned with a political party, the Peoples Democratic Party and in full support of all her candidates at all levels across the 36 states of the federation and FCT.

However, I can't refrain myself from addressing a biased and misguided piece from a certain self acclaimed political scientist and public commentator, which he titled "Reasons Why Agbaje Would Lose The Lagos Governorship Election Again".

One fact about Lagos 2019 is that unlike the previous elections since 2011, the incumbent ruling party in the state and their supporters have been in serious fear mode; fear of losing their acclaimed empire, fear of losing the priced Gubernatorial contest to no other than Mr. Jimi Agbaje, the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party. Why? See the reasons;

1. Lagosians Are Fed Up With Tinubu Political Empire:
Being a longtime admirer of Asiwaju Tinubu, I can sense from distance the fear of his footsoldiers ahead of 2019 poll. This is the main reason their Governorship candidate Jide Sanwoolu has been bugging every nook and crannies of the state with his posters and billboards. In all their campaign billboard and posters, NOT one of them talk about their achievement in the last 20 years. Sanwoolu is even ashamed to campaign with the stewardship of incumbent Akinwunmi Ambode, simply because if he says Ambo performed, then the question will be why was he rejected? The question will be if Ambode had performed, why was he not considered worthy enough for a second term reelection ticket? Also, Sanwoolu cannot openly say Ambode underperformed because that in itself is an indictment on their party and vindication of the position of Mr Agbaje. However, Lagosians are quite informed that Sanwoolu is the furtherance of Bola's empire and are ready to put a stop come 2019.

2. Failure of President Muhammadu Buhari

In Nigeria's political environment the failure of the party at the centre is usually rubbed on her candidates at lower level. That Buhari administration is a failed one is no longer news, it is also an open secret that the failure of Buhari will affect his party's candidates especially in the southern part of Nigeria, where Lagos is a unit.

3. The Consistency Of Agbaje's Message:

Take it or leave it, the message of freedom as preached by Agbaje has sank deep into the nooks and crannies of Lagos state. In 2015, Agbaje's message became so loud that he narrowly lost to Ambo by small margin in 2015 despite the supposed sterling performance of then Governor Raji Fashola and the anti-PDP propaganda that swept Lagos. In fact, Jimi polled the highest vote garnered by any opposition party since 1999 and the PDP broke several jinx by winning seats in both the federal house of representative and Lagos state house of Assembly. I'm not trying to prophesy but a landslide victory in for Jimi Agbaje should not surprised anyone.

4. Involvement of "Non-Indigenes":

One advantage Jimi enjoy over his loquacious opponent is that he enjoys additional support of PVC carrying non indigenes of Lagos state due to his nationalist approach and programs unlike the ethnic-based political message of the other man. Only a political neophyte will playdown the influence of this segment in the politics of Lagos.

5. Jimi Is Busiest Of All Candidates:
May I educate the so-called political scientist that Mr Jimi Agbaje has been the busiest of all candidates running for the office. He has been engaged with marathon town hall events, grassroots outreach and has been very visible at conventions and other events. I think the writer of that piece is out if touch with present realities and happenings in Lagos.

6. Jimi Has Clear Policies:
Aside bullying Lagosians with posters and billboards, Sanwoolu has been the most quiet of all candidates. His policies are neither here nor there that they can't be critiqued because they lack substance. This cannot be said of Mr Jimi Agbaje. Lagosians know what he stands for. His posters and billboards convey message to the average Lagosian, a message that majority have already signed up for.

Those who are on ground in Lagos will tell you that the most uncomfortable candidate at the moment is Mr Sanwoolu. However, I will not make any political prophecy but having considered these facts and indices on ground, I will not be surprised when Jimi Agbaje of PDP is declared winner of Lagos state gubernatorial contest in March.

May God Bless Us All And Bless Nigeria

Politics / President Jonathan Is Fighting Corruption- Jimi Agbaje(lagos PDP Guber Aspirant) by jigawatts(m): 8:41am On Feb 18, 2015
The Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Jimi Agbaje, says President Goodluck Jonathan is being criticised unfairly, adding that the President is effectively tackling corruption.

Agbaje said this at a youth interactive session organised by the Directorate of Youth Mobilisation of the PDP in Lagos on Monday.

He noted that the Transparency International report on corruption showed that out of 174 countries evaluated for corruption, Nigeria ranked 136th which means at least 38 countries are more corrupt than Nigeria.

He said, “I don’t know if you read recently the report by Transparency International on corruption. They say Jonathan is not fighting corruption. Of all the past Presidents and heads of state, including military, it is on record today that Jonathan’s record in fighting corruption is the best. They say he is not fighting corruption but he has the highest score in the last 20 years among those that have been fighting corruption.”

The PDP candidate said Jonathan was a true democrat and that was why he signed the Freedom of Information Bill into law.

He said despite the insults being hurled at Jonathan, the President refused to intimidate anyone.

He said the fact that Jonathan chose Prof. Attahiru Jega to head the Independent National Electoral Commission showed that Jonathan was more interested in free and fair elections than power.

He said, “It is only because Jonathan allowed democracy, that is why they can be insulting him the way they like. The person that was there before Jonathan, could they talk to him like that? But you see democracy is about freedom of speech, freedom of choice but do they allow that?

“Jonathan has allowed freedom of information. There is no freedom of information in Lagos State. They have not yet passed the law and they talk about democracy. Jonathan chose an impartial person to run INEC because he believes in democracy and that is why the elections are more competitive. If it was our own person, we would not be campaigning like this because we would believe that we had won.”

Programming / Re: Why Waste 4 Years On Computer Science In University? by jigawatts(m): 8:40am On Sep 11, 2013
rexspect: Computer science in the university is not all about programming languages alone. It involves System Analysis, Networking, DBMS, computer ethics and professionalism, System verification and validation, etc. All these you will not learn in your so called NIIT or afrihub. If really you know what you learnt from the university then you should know that there is big difference between learning Computer science in the university than outside the wall of the university.


Seeing ur comment makes me proud to be a COMPUTER SCIENCE graduate. kiss smiley

you answered him quite well

In 100L, we did a topic: "Difference between Computer Science and Information Technology"

IF you understand this topic well enuff, you will see and know the major advantages of studying COMPUTER SCIENCE.

Because you know a few codes or software doesnt make you a Computer Scientist.

The Managerial aspect of IT generally is automatically embedded in Computer Science which you cannot get from NIIT, APTECH or wherever.

Politics / Re: Boko Haram Kill 44 In Borno by jigawatts(m): 8:41am On Aug 25, 2013
you said,the word is scripted by GOD. How on earth can you relate someone aggression and wish of survival as scripted by GOD. Let me tell you, you cannot fight for God, because he is a mighty man in battle. He is our maker and he can kill and sustain at the same time. If what your god teaches you is to kill innocents until they submit forcefully to your religion, then you re not serving a real God. The lord our God can do all things cos he created all things. Whether you want to hear the truth or not, you will not win this battle cos its of God. Bokoharams will be crushed by thunder by fire.

Politics / Re: Boko Haram Kill 44 In Borno by jigawatts(m): 1:14pm On Aug 24, 2013
zibi2: Quran...Muhammad's Own Words:

Qur'an:9:88 "The Messenger and those who believe with him, strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives in Allah's Cause."

Qur'an:9:5 "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."

Qur'an:9:112 "The Believers fight in Allah's Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed."

Qur'an:9:29 "Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission."

Ishaq:325 "Muslims, fight in Allah's Cause. Stand firm and you will prosper. Help the Prophet, obey him, give him your allegiance, and your religion will be victorious."

Qur'an:8:39 "Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah."

Qur'an:8:39 "So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world)." What a religion....

1. If you are picking verses from the Quran, you do not JUST pick from the middle and translate.

2. Every verse in the Quran has a beginning and ending, please go back and read the verses that were exactly before the ones you posted and Understand the whole chapter.

3. Let me give you an example:
- In Chapter2 Vs178, God says: Retaliation is decreed for you in bloodshed, an eye for an eye, a slave for a slave ...etc. BUT the verse ended with :

.....But for him who is forgiven somewhat by his (aggrieved religious) brother, then prosecution (for blood-wit) should be made according to a fair, manner ( ma'ruf) and let the payment be made to him with kindliness. ..."

So please, IF you cannot understand how the Quran was scripted by God, Try to get more understanding.

Thank you.

We expect ladies like you that have thrown all decency and decorum to the wind, thereby debasing womanhood, to know that your actions and inactions has to a large extent contributed to teen prostitution and pregnancy, cos a lot of kids copy you. I make bold to submit that the difference between you(and your likes) and Yerima is like that of six and half dozen. There are many under sixteen Tonto Dikeh 'wanna-be'. Have you ever sat down to ask yourself what/who is it that these kids 'wanna-be'?
