Family / Re: The Consequences Of Late Marriage And Why You Should Marry Early by mrkel(m): 12:08am On Apr 15
I just wish you know how Japan, Norway and most 1st world nations view marriage.. why do Nigerians place so much value on marriage/children instead of making life better?
marry on time... give birth to children.. feed your wife & children.. buy car/build house for your family.. after that you na die.
is that what God created black man to do?
why don't we think about space exploration, curing diseases, scientific breakthrough.. the whole world is entering the 4th industrial revolution, 9ja still dey dance BTW 1st/2nd, but yet marriage, religion is wat fills our discuss..
You can go ahead and marry without any source of livelihood, bring children into this world to suffer/beg(almajiri style).

I must try my best to ensure my children ain't brought up in this country, if I can't afford it I will do my best to ensure they're born aboard, at least to secure dual citizenship..

everything for 9ja jus dey provoke person

You get too much sense bro. Thumbs up!!

Business / Re: Bolaji Oluwadunsin: Nairalander Wins 2019 Tony Elumelu Foundation Grant Of $5000 by mrkel(m): 9:37pm On Mar 27
Hello beautiful nairalanders',

This is your girl Precious smiley

My journey to self-discovery and financial independence as a budding entrepreneur started approximately two years when I braved the odds and stereotype to partake in the Miss FUTA contest 2017.

I created a thread (See Below) to solicit for votes and you all supported and showed me love as an early bird on the site. Though I did not win the contest, I took valuable lessons from the exposure and the drive of not giving up despite setbacks in life.


I took up the challenge to start a fashion accessory business under the trade name Dunsin Craft Collections (DCC), with a niche on Ankara inspired crafts to promote our Nigerian culture and identity. My goal was to make DCC , the No.1 Ankara Craft Accessory/Bag Designer in Akure/Ondo State and Nigeria at large.


Along the line, I won several awards in Ondo State in the fashion category and also gave back to the community via free trainings on making Ankara craft such as Ankara drawstring bags, bangles, earrings, hats, face caps, throw pillows, Hair bonnet, Ankara waist bags e.t.c
As a young Nigerian undergraduate also grappling with study, being an entrepreneur wasn’t an easy feat but I persisted and was undeterred.

To God be the glory and with the help and impeccable guidance of my very resourceful manager @paulspeaks of the Drive academy, I enrolled for the Tony Elumelu grant of $5,000 for budding entrepreneurs across Africa and won.

It’s a dream come true and I hope my little story will inspire others who are passing through any difficulties to never give up irrespective of the setbacks and challenges life throws at us.

Remain Blessed….

congratulation dear. wishing you all the best even as I anticipate that you will make judicious use of the fund in not only expanding your business but also engaging the unemployed that desirous of working in your outfit.
Politics / Re: 'INEC Rec Is Working For PDP, Redeploy Him': Akwa Ibom Youths Protest (Photos) by mrkel(m): 8:42pm On Feb 18
The Mike Igini I know is above board and will never pander to the whims and caprices of either PDP or APC.

i'm wont to surmise, however, that there is more to this protest than meet the eyes. Mike Igini may not be dancing to the beats of the APC power brokers hence their recourse to inducing their pliable minions( almajiri) to embark on protest to call for his removal.

Politics / Re: Minimum Wage Bill Passes Second Reading At Senate by mrkel(m): 6:54pm On Jan 24
The Tripartite group agreed to N30,000 minimum wage, which the government, private industry and labour unions were part of. The Council of States, which includes past presidents settled for N27,000. The labour unions were never consulted on the N27,000 revised minimum wage. Why is Buhari sending it to the National Assembly for passage? Isn't this a classic case of "bait and switch" where the president agrees to one bill, but submits an amended bill to the National assembly for consideration?

The labour unions will never accept it. We should all brace ourselves for labour strikes that is likely to paralyze the country.

The Minister of Labour and Productivity opined that federal civil servants would be paid #30,000 and that states are at liberty to follow suit or stick to the agreed #27,000.
Crime / Re: Gunmen Attack Woman, Her Driver And Kill Police Escort On Their Way To The Bank by mrkel(m): 9:36pm On Jan 15

page 68 of 112, the 1999 Nigeria constitution ( The whole section/page pertains to the Nigeria police Force)

B - Nigeria Police Force
214. (1) There shall be a police force for Nigeria, which shall be known as the Nigeria Police Force, and subject
to the provisions of this section no other police force shall be established for the Federation or any part thereof.
(2) Subject to the provisions of this Constitution -
(a) the Nigeria Police Force shall be organised and administered in accordance with such provisions as may be
prescribed by an act of the National Assembly;
(b) the members of the Nigeria Police shall have such powers and duties as maybe conferred upon them by law;
(c) the National Assembly may make provisions for branches of the Nigeria Police Force forming part of the
armed forces of the Federation or for the protection of harbours, waterways, railways and air fields.
215. (1) There shall be -
(a) an Inspector-General of Police who, subject to section 216(2) of this Constitution shall be appointed by the
President on the advice of the Nigeria Police Council from among serving members of the Nigeria Police Force;
(b) a Commissioner of Police for each state of the Federation who shall be appointed by the Police Service
(2) The Nigeria Police Force shall be under the command of the Inspector-General of Police and contingents of
the Nigeria Police Force stationed in a state shall, subject to the authority of the Inspector-General of Police, be
under the command of the Commissioner of Police of that state.
(3) The President or such other Minister of the Government of the Federation as he may authorise in that behalf
may give to the Inspector-General of Police such lawful directions with respect to the maintenance and securing
of public safety and public order as he may consider necessary, and the Inspector-General of Police shall comply
with those direction or cause them to be compiled with.

(4) Subject to the provisions of this section, the Governor of a state or such Commissioner of the Government
state as he may authorise in that behalf, may give to the Commissioner of Police of that state such lawful
directions with respect to the maintenance and securing of public safety and public order within the state as he
may consider necessary, and the Commissioner of Police shall comply with those directions or cause them to be
complied with:

Provided that before carrying out any such directions under the foregoing provisions of this subsection the
Commissioner of Police may request that the matter be referred to the President or such minister of the
Government of the Federation as may be authorised in that behalf by the President for his directions.
(5) The question whether any, and if so what, directions have been given under this section shall not be inquired
into in any court.


read and be informed

The issue in contention is whether the State governors have "absolute" control on the Nigeria police.

Secondly, there is even a proviso in the said Clause where the Commissioner of Police will have to seek authorization from those at the top before carrying out certain directive of the state governors.

So that in itself has given credence to my earlier assertion that the State governors do not have total control over the police in their domain. And to that extent shouldnt be blamed for any security infraction.

You are aware of the Mbu saga in Rivers state and what played out in the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly late last year where the Police clearly pander to the whims and caprices of the some influential APC big weight. At some point during Jonathan's adminstration, the Bornu State governor Mr. Shettima keep blaming the later for not doing anything to curtail the Boko Haram menance. Lastly, why was the chibok girls incident heaped squarely at the door step of the president Jonathan, when clearly there was a governor incharge of Bornu State?
Crime / Re: Gunmen Attack Woman, Her Driver And Kill Police Escort On Their Way To The Bank by mrkel(m): 3:51pm On Jan 15

how old are you?

is Buhari the Governor of Rivers state or you are just hopelessly ignorant?

is the governor in charge of the security apparatus in the state ? The irony and contradiction in our bastard Federalism is the labeling of state governors as Chief Security Officer of their states. Now I'm compelled to ask the fundamental question: Do the state governor have absolute and total control of the police in their domain? Also, the last time I checked my 1999 constitution as amended issues of security falls within the exclusive legislative list.

So any one that accuses the Federal government of failing to provide security isn't making mistake. After all the Boko Haram menace and the inability of the previous government in addressing it formed the basis of the criticism by the APC on Pres. Jonathan.

what ever she may have committed doesn't justify or warrant the assaulted meted to her by the dude. what he did is reprehensible and condemnable.

He probably think he is in Nigeria where you can molest the opposite sex and go scout free. In the western climes, there judicial system is skewed in favour of women.

Nairaland / General / Re: My Stammering Issue Is Depressing Me by mrkel(m): 10:07pm On Dec 20, 2018
I also stutter as well. Mine is genetic as my grand father, father, one of my sibling and cousins are stammerer. Now here is the trick on how to bring the situation to check. Always take a deep breathe whenever you want to engage in discussion. And also learn to pick you words, which is by talking slowing. Also learn to deploy your hands as a support structure when talking that way it enable you to have seamless control of your speech.

one way I was able to control mine was in always engaging myself in leadership position that would bring me in the spotlight. That way I learned to control it and to build confidence in myself.
Politics / Re: Don Chuks Abaga: 'Many Corpses Of Soldiers Are Still In The Bush' by mrkel(m): 12:04pm On Nov 28, 2018
There's no discipline in Nigeria armed forces. Look at what a soldier is posting online.

APC has succeeded in rubishing our army. A golden opportunity for Cameroon, Chad, Niger or Republic of Benin to invade us. We'll just crumble like a pack of cards and be colonised for the next two hundred years.


The Nigerian military authority came up with a code of conduct/ethics some months back , which seeks to restrain soldiers from posting pictures of themselves in uniform on Facebook. Am sure the young man will face disciplinary action, if not outright dismissal for going contrary to the policy and also bringing the Army authority into disrepute .

That’s the general idea

issorite. At least the by tacit endorsement you and pocohantas has thrown to the use of pen knife it will serve as a warning to guys to act responsibly.

May i also add that women should try and embark on due diligence before sparking any chemistry with guys. That way the incidences of rape will be averted. There are many decent guys out there who abhors forcibly taken advantage of ladies. But most Nigeria ladies tend to have preferences for the sharp bad guys owing to their sugarcoated attribute.
Romance / Re: Why I Will Never Visit A Man In His House Again by mrkel(m): 4:51pm On Aug 22, 2018

To kill the rapist smiley
The only problem is, knives are messy!!!

The resort to moving with knife to a guy's house as a pre-emptive measure against any seeming attempt of rape is totally inappropriate.

i'll rather support the use of pepper spray.

The implication of deploring pen knife as a defence mechanism is the fact that it could, when not properly handled, use to sniff life on the opposite sex. And in such a case, the lady would be held culpable and charged to court for manslaughter.
Romance / Re: Why I Will Never Visit A Man In His House Again by mrkel(m): 3:55pm On Aug 22, 2018
It depends on you and the guy you are visiting... Not all men are scums...
Next time if you ain't sure..arrange to meet in an open place better still take a pen knife along

Family / Re: Family House by mrkel(m): 11:23am On May 19, 2018
There is absolutely nothing wrong in it. I can also relate. That's how my ex told me that should we get married I should be ready to move out of the two bedroom ensuite apartment my dad bequeathed to me. That she doesn't like where she will have contact with my mum. I could recall i told her that my priority is to get a land and build my own house. That I really do not feel comfortable renting a house in my state. Beside my Family house is in the heart of the capital in my state.

Guy any women that do not feel comfortable in your family house should take up the gauntlet by using her money to secure a new apartment.

it now leads me to the question, why do women like dreading their mother-inlaw?
