This needs to stop even though its a joke. You will never see this type of feature on Linda ikeji blog or other professional blog sites. I dont think it adds value when we have Innoson motors. It just create black stereotypes for your foreign visitors.

Dont call them smugglers. That term is used for illegal transportation of goods or services. Just a bunch of guys trying to evade the law to save on taxation. Leave them alone. Who loves the tax man anyways?

You are part of the problem. Every time a successful person enjoys his money, haters must hate, haters must use big fonts to trumpet their hate so that the world notice. If he was helping rehabilitate displaced victims of boko haram, No media will pick the story up. In case you are ill informed, Media only focuses on sensitizing stories to get higher viewership and there is nothing to sensitize about in helping displaced victims of boko haram. It is the Nigerian Governments Job to do that so leave the man alone.

|Crime / Re: Update On Adaobi Obih's Murder - Roommate Wanted For Murder by larger20(m): 12:04am On Nov 25, 2013|
There is an update on this. The man has been taken into Custody. See below
UPDATE: Columbus Police received notification from the U.S. Marshals Service that Ryan Klug, the man who was wanted in connection with the murder of 26-year-old Adaobi M. Obih has been taken into custody in the Galveston Texas area.
Authorities had been tracking Klug near Galveston since last night.
Representatives from Columbus Police will be going to Galveston to continue their investigation.
COLUMBUS – Columbus police obtained an arrest warrant for a man wanted for murder.
They’re looking for 36-year-old Ryan Allen Klug, who they say is now the prime suspect in the murder of 26-year-old Adaobi M. Obih, who was found dead Tuesday in an apartment. Police initially said Klug was a “person of interest” in the case.
Columbus police don’t think Klug is still in the area and said multiple law enforcement agencies were looking for him.

Police were alerted to Obih’s death after she missed work Monday and Tuesday without notifying anyone. Concerned coworkers contacted her apartment complex to ask about her. Police also contacted the property manager to request a welfare check, according to the arrest affidavit.
A maintenance worked went to check on the woman and said, “It’s not good, there is blood everywhere” after going to Obih’s apartment.
A neighbor said he noticed that the door to Obih’s garage spot was open and had been open for at least 24 hours. Klug, who police described as Obih’s roommate, parked his vehicle there.
The maintenance worker told police there were no signs of forced entry at the apartment and that only two people would’ve had keys: Obih and Klug. The maintenance worker told police he found Obih with a “large amount of blood around her head” and said it appeared clear that she was dead.
Police talked to Obih’s boyfriend, who revealed that he’d texted and called her multiple times but never heard back. The last message he received from her was at 12:17 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17. When she failed to respond, he went to her apartment, saw her car in the parking lot and knocked on the door. Obih didn’t answer.
A neighbor who lives in the apartment below Obih’s said it sounded like someone was moving furniture during Sunday afternoon. “It went on for more than three minutes,” the neighbor said, adding that it happened shortly before tornado warnings went off for Sunday’s storms.
Police said Klug had texted a pastor asking him to call. When the pastor did so, Klug answered and said he couldn’t talk at the time.
Further investigation found that Obih had been stabbed multiple times and her throat cut. A blood trail went from the woman’s bedroom to Klug’s, and police said it appeared “the assailant attempted to clean up in the bathroom area belonging to Mr. Klug.” They also found a bloody towel in Klug’s sink. Police located a plastic bag containing a bloody sock and other clothes stained with blood, including blue jeans, boxers and a shirt. Police said the “amount of blood on these items was significant.”
Police found a trail of small blood drops leading from the apartment to the garage where Klug parked his vehicle. His 2008 silver Subaru Legacy was not parked in the garage.
Klug works for the Indiana Department of Transportation, and police contacted his supervisor, who told them Klug’s behavior had been “off” lately. He sent a text message Sunday saying, “sick tomorrow, then vacation next two weeks.” His supervisor said the message was out of character and also violated the department’s vacation time policy. Klug did not return texts or phone calls, his supervisor said. He didn’t show up at work Monday or Tuesday.
Klug’s stepmother and father said they hadn’t heard from him for several days.
His brother told police he’d spoken with Klug about two weeks ago. Klug wanted to get back with a girl he’d dated. The relationship ended about a year ago. His brother told Klug to call her; he said Klug discovered she was dating someone else and told him, “I’m losing control.”

|Properties / Re: Reasons Why You Must Own Your House by larger20(m): 1:10am On Oct 08, 2013|
There is no right or wrong here...Renting Vs owning really depends on our unique situations. For me, I prefer renting because the money I make investing in a year can buy me a house but why buy if i can continue to re-invest and make more? I enjoy my flexibility of living in some of the hottest properties in San Francisco bay on lease..

I live in California and trust me when i say you don't want to live for 10/hr here.......California is just too expensive.....to live in a comfortable apartment here, you need to pay about 1200/month and that does not include heat/gas/electricity. California car insurance and fuel is one of the highest in the country. It cost about $4.2 per gallon to fill up your gas tank here, now compare that with Nigeria...
California rich vs poor income gap is too wide but mostly because majority of the poor Californians has defaulted to government support..

|Properties / Re: Reasons Why You Must Own Your House by larger20(m): 1:05pm On Jun 29, 2013|
Maybe in Nigeria.....I actually favor renting Vs buying a home and here is why
1. You Stay Flexible
Do you have every aspect of your life planned out for the next several years? Whether or not you do, things can change quickly. Renting gives you flexibility. You can pack up all your things and move with short notice, and maybe an early termination fee. Compare that to the process of selling a house, which can take months.
2. You Have More Options
With the housing market at a low, people are reluctant to sell their houses and condos. So they turn to renting instead. As a result, the market for renting is bigger and has better options than the buying one. Rentalads.com is a rental property website with thousands of rental choices. It allows you to search your options and select your choice with the click of a mouse.
3. Owning Can Be More Expensive
Some people balk at renting because they don’t want to spend money on something they’ll never gain ownership of. But homeowners also spend a lot of money on fees and taxes that never apply to their principle or equity.
4. Renters Insurance Is Affordable
Renters insurance is significantly more affordable than homeowners insurance. Even with the lower cost, you can still get substantial protection and coverage.
5. Rental Rates Are Steady
Right now the housing market is low, but it won’t always be. It’s always changing. Remember the roller coaster? In contrast, rental rates stay the same. There is some variation, but it’s not as frequent or as drastic as variations in housing costs.
6. Someone Else Does Repairs
When something breaks in your home, you are the one who has to fix it or fork over the cash to replace it. A new refrigerator alone can cost thousands of dollars. Some rental contracts require the landlord to take care of most repairs and replacements.
7. The Issue of Taxes
Renters don’t have to pay property tax. Sure, you might be required to bear some of the expense in your monthly rent. But the landlord will have to deal with the brunt of the cost and most of the tax paperwork. Another reason why renting a house is better is that homeowner tax deductions are overstated. In fact, half of homeowners don’t get a tax break.
8. Vacation Homes
We all envy the people who can afford to own vacation homes. Well, now you can be one of them for a fraction of the cost. Vacation homes are available for rent all over the US. The expense is reduced, but the novelty and fun are not.
9. Renters Have Less Liability
Lightning strikes without warning. Washer pipes break and flood your basement. Renters who are without fault don’t have to carry the liability when the unexpected occurs.
10. No Mortgage!
Anyone who’s had a mortgage knows how draining and time consuming it can be. The stifling legal requirements and procedures. The piles of paperwork that look like gibberish. The long process of modifying or refinancing. Not to mention the risk of getting overcharged by your lender; which has become a common problem recently. You can easily avoid all of this by renting.

It really should depend on a lot of factors. All of these post here with figures seems like entry level candidates salaries with little or no experience in the banking sector. Experienced employees that bring their assets to the table makes a whole lot more i am sure. If i should work for a bank in Nigeria via consulting company like accenture, I should be making 50 X that figure in a year in Nigeria because I will bring a lot to the table.

|Autos / Re: Car Buying Tips, Advise, Guidelines. by larger20(m): 12:33am On Jan 28, 2011|
This is a very broad question and some cars might have specific needs others will not have however the general rule of the game will all depend on your budget and I will recommend buying a car in good or excellent condition even if its from a common brand name like toyota or mazda than buying a BMW or Lexus at the same price but comes with a lot of issues. ovetime these luxurious cars tends to attract more fees and that includes during clearing at the port of entry as well as parts replacement down the road. The Mileage in a car is a good indication for the life line of the car and this can be tempered with in nigeria. I have heard of bad news of mileage mis-use in nigeria. So shine your eyes well well.
If buying from abroad and have some extra padding, I will recommend that you pay for a full body check or diagnostics of your car before any commitment as this will help you clear way for lots of headache down the road.
Make sure you find the current worth of the vehicle from sources like http://www.kbb.com/ and anything else untop of that is the overhead you have to pay whether purchased in the country or outside the country. Its better to work with people you can trust of refeered to by someone else as they tend to build better reputation up from there.
