I am not sure we have had a more confused leadership than we do today.
They recommend cashless society, then put charges on use of POS.
The customs have failed in their responsibility to stop smuggling. Therefore we shut our borders because of rice.
Now the same government that said those herdsmen killing Nigerians are from other African countries, now want to open the doors for influx of terrorists. The customs and immigration have failed to check the borders, imagines an open invitation for all.

For someone who was knocked out previously, I expect joshua to beat him up, instead of running away from attack.

And you are reading and responding to nonsense.
|Sports / Why It Will Be Hard For Anthony Joshua To Win. by mekaboy(m): 9:48pm On Dec 07|
I wish joshua wins tonight. However it's going to be very difficult due to these points.
1) his opponent have beaten him before, giving him more confidence.
2) his opponent knows his weak point.
3) while his opponent was faster and more flexible, Joshua had heavier punches with less flexibility.
4) His opponent has added more weight to his speed. His punches will have more damaging effects.
Well, let's wish him luck.

Why is there heavy and light weight in boxing?
|Sports / Re: Anthony Joshua Vs Andy Ruiz Jr. II - Rematch (Live Updates) by mekaboy(m): 9:15pm On Dec 07|
The weight is for the heavy punch. To knock joshua out faster.

It's not about swore, but it's an example of a failed decaying nation. Weak compromised institutions and a citizens that care less about their country.
|Politics / Re: 5 Reasons Why Nigeria Will Never Be Great. by mekaboy(m): 12:22pm On Nov 30|
They vote based on tribe because they don't believe in the country.
They vote tribe because there is so much power at the center.
Terrorists who kill Nigerians are set free because a region is in power at the center. While sowore will spend xmass in custody.
The vote for tribe because the institutions are compromised and influenced by the centre.
|Politics / 5 Reasons Why Nigeria Will Never Be Great. by mekaboy(m): 11:09am On Nov 30|
Some people will say I am wishing Nigeria bad luck, while some religious one will say it is a negative confession. Well developed countries did not develop by luck or positive confession.
Forget what your pastors tell you about Nigeria in the name of prophecy, those things are wishes and not from God.
Here are the 5 major reasons Nigeria will never be great.
1) the leaders of the count don't believe in the country. I don't have to start talking about how they buy property abroad, send their children to study abroad etc. We already know.
2) the citizens don't believe in the country. Things our leaders do and get away with it, would have set other countries on fire. We prefer foreign clothes, food etc to ours. Everyone is minding their business and act as if sowores rights are not being violated. People from other countries are even more concerned than Nigerians.
3) We borrow to consume while other nations borrow to develop. We borrow to feed the over bloated federal and state governments and have nothing left to invest. The entire nation is working to feed the government and it is not enough. More borrowing is needed to feed the government. As long as we continue to run this luxurious style of government, we are heading for the rocks.
4) So much power in the center. This is the reason there is so much nepotism and struggle to produce president from a particular region.
5) Weak institution. I think this is the most important thing. The judiciary, police, Tax, anti-coruption agencies are not independent. They are controlled by the center, that is why things don't work here. In developed countries they try as much as possible to ensure the government does not interfere or influence their operation.
If you overspeed you get a ticket even if you are the president and you pay the fine. Tax is static and every individual of organization has to pay according to their category irrespective of who they are. Everyone has the right to invite the police to resolve conflict and get justice from the court no matter their status. In this part of the country, the court and security agencies are used by the rich to intimidate the masses.
Someone can always call someone and taxes and fines are waved
So as long as these factors remain, no prophecy or seed sown in religious houses can make Nigeria great .

A lot of legit people carry more cash than they declare at the airport.
Why didn't otedola just go to court and clear his name on subsidy? Why use bribe to blackmail lawman?
|Politics / Re: Allen Onyema And The African Slaves. by mekaboy(m): 8:52am On Nov 26|
You are right, yorubas did not make themselves nuisance over sowore. But used all the resources at their disposal against goodluck Jonathan. Where is occupy Nigeria? Why is nobody matching in protest? Has fuel not increased, has Buhari not disobeyed court orders? Have herdsmen to killed? What happened to the yoruba voice under Buhari? The yorubas are silent over sowore because they are afraid of the tyrant they brought into power, hoping he will hand over to them.
|Politics / Re: BREAKING: Court Threatens To Jail DSS DG Over Failure To Release Sowore by mekaboy(m): 9:45pm On Nov 25|
Why the threat? Why not act?
|Politics / Re: Allen Onyema And The African Slaves. by mekaboy(m): 9:44pm On Nov 25|
The issue is you sentencing him before the court does.

The news is all over the place about Allen onyema the air peace boss. And many are shouting crucify him out of ignorance.
The charges against him are so escalated, that one begins to think he duped the United states of America.
What exactly did he do that has never been done in America?
Nigeria CBN gave him forex at a cheaper rate to buy aircrafts. Then it is alleged that it was one of the companies he had interest that was selling the aircraft. So he go fx at a cheap rate and used part of it for something else aside the aircraft. So bloody what? Why is America acting like he killed someone? Every billionaire finds a loophole to pay less taxes.
As rich s otedola is, was his not listed among those who benefited from the subsidy scam?
The president of America today did something similar. Refuses to file tax returns and used loopholes to avoid paying millions of dollars in tax. He admitted this during campaign, is he not president today? Has anyone killed him?
Why are we quick to act as slaves?
American government takes in billions monthly from visa refusals in Nigeria and nobody has the right to question the legitimacy of their decisions.
A British firm came to Nigeria to setup a project, which the Nigerian government failed to supply the gas agreed. Even though the project did not take off, they said Nigeria will pay the total cost of the project and all the profit they would have made for years if the project took off.
It's just like someone wants to start a bakery and I said I will supply baking powder or flour. He rents land and I don't deliver flour. Then he says I should pay him an amount he imagined to make yearly for 10 year. Simply because I did not bring the flour. He has not even brought in the equipment or attempted to test run.
But we are running around to pay or negotiating the amount.
We support the British against Nigeria in such a case. Here we support the US against onyema for something Donald Trump would do on a normal day.
If Abacha was alive today, wont his money still be safe for him in those foreign countries? Didn't they invest the abacha loot and make profit for years? Are they returning the money with interest?
See how people out of envy are chunning out topics about the air peace boss online. " how onyema stole Niger delta money", " how onyema was caught", " Onyema could do 25 years in prison" etc.
What exactly will be your gain as individuals to see onyema jailed or air peace to fail and people loose their jobs?
We blame our leaders for the terrible state of this nation. We forget that the leaders come from among the people. And the wickedness and envy displayed online is what is taken to the position of leadership.
It's obvious that the whiteman took advantage of our envy and wickedness towards our own to enslave us. Today, that slavery is still strong in our mind. The reason we will prefer foreign cars to innoson or cloths to the likes of yomi casual etc.
We sing about designer brands like gucci, Prada, fendi etc. Who sings about our own brands?
The sooner we free ourselves from this mental slavery the better for us.
