Career / Re: Layoffs And Job Security Force Nigeria’s Tech Workers To Traditional Industries by NapoleonHill: 1:28pm
Albertone:


Gone are the days of newbies with potentials easily getting recruited.
Which newbie can compete against people with > 5 years of work experience?

Even in the US where a lot of opportunities abound, some computer science grads with experience send about 300+ applications and get less than 10 interviews.

How many roles are open in Nigeria?

What pains me about his view is that people like him do nothing, know nothing, and have opinion on everything.

Those in the industry know how it is now. It's difficult to get a high paying tech jobs in Nigeria, they will be pricing you like Crayfish. It's also riskier to move to other jobs. They may have projects they are working on. As soon as it's done, they give you two month break and lay off.

My brother he is right ooo. 500k is nothing if you're good. I was earning 3 times that amount in 2022 until most of us were layed off. Now it's very hard to see 300k salary sef


I just quoted a guy telling him now that he has no idea what the industry is saying. Things have changed drastically. Layoffs everywhere. If you have money, use am hold something. Moving around in tech now is harder and riskier.

Hogwash article.

Companies are actively recruiting for experienced hire and newbie who has lot of potentials.

You wont see SKILLED tech guy leaving IT for traditional industries.

There are so many moving parts in IT and you need to be well grounded and see how they influence each other.

I do not know where this op sees this false article. Genuine IT dudes are selling like hot cakes.

Are you in tech? If not, just read, learn and move on. There's a global retrenchment exercise from big tech all the way to start ups. Tech is now way more competitive now than what it used to be. In Nigeria, I can mention about 4 financial services companies massively downsizing. These are places I have friends, they are panicking and seeking alternatives including studying abroad and other roles as stated in the article.

This is not to mean that others do not make money from tech today. It means a lot of things are changing and doing so very fast.

AAAA67:
Don't know why Abure cannot honorably step down.
Even at the attempt towards his life.
You can't lead people by force if the people do not want you.
LP suddenly becomes the political bride due to O is influence, yet they can't put their house in order.
How do they now want to rule the nation ?

I don't support anything he does or doesn't do cos I don't really care but no man should give his enemies glory over him in such a cheap manner. So because he was attacked, he should surrended to them?

If anyone goes about life that way, they will never amount to anything because life is always full of obstacles.

Offpoint1:
We are all band A.

Bypass your meters, every government sector is stealing millions from the national treasure. The only thing the masses used to enjoyed has been canceled by bulaba.


So I encourage everyone who can bypass their meter should do so. An average politician steals nothing less than 5m in a month. So bypass the fxxkkn meter if they won't fix the cost.

Bypass is now very difficult.

Nazgul:
I said this on a similar thread.

Nigeria generates less than 5,000 mega watts and you're expecting NEPA to sustain 20 hours of electricity supply for Band A customers? That's impossible.

They would never be able to meet up with that target, and the customers are the ones who would be on the receiving end cos they'll be paying through their noses for darkness. No thanks to the incompetence of the Discos.

Even the power we generate is not properly distributed. Failed distribution installations everywhere. Every sector in the power industry is messed up.
Politics / Re: Band A Customers Decry Extortion By Power Firms Amid Poor Supply by NapoleonHill: 5:58pm On Apr 07
nairalanda1:
Power supply is atrocious because for decades we have been on subsidized power. The result is that the sector was not able to make enough money to keep running well.

Even now tinubu is still paying subsides for bands b to band d.

When the subsidy removal happens properly ( apc wants power and if keeping subsidy means they win they will bring it back), prices will shoot up so that money would be made to fix things up then when investment flows in as a result, prices might come down.

As seen in the GSM sector.


We've been lying to ourselves for decades. Now, thanks to years of subsidy and years of looting , we have to face the truth. Even apc

Can you enlighten me, please?

If government has been subsidizing power, why is the money not used to keep running the power distribution sector?

Why is the discos waiting for when the masses pay before they can start running the sector properly? What are they using the subsidy being paid for?

They wont do shit.
When asked why they cant do shit,they will say they are calculating their attack.
Meanwhile they cant do shit.

I would have thought otherwise too until I saw Iran in action when Sulaimani was killed. They targeted American facilities in Iraq with several missiles.

There's a reason why even US is concerned that there would be retaliation.

Nothing commendable here; the only thing keeping them back was the maan bragging that he's a soldier. They'll have shot him if he was a civilian.

That's a lie but would be true if it were in the US.

The individual claimed to be a soldier, a military officer, and made threats against a police officer. No taser or gun, the subsequent action taken was the deployment of tear gas. Lol

His tone suggested a serious intent to harm anyone who approached, which was evident in the fear and confusion among the officers.

He's holding an object presumed to be a knife. Una know everything online. Put you there now and you become a fool.

Tinubu is a bitter vindictive person


Tinubu is occupying the office of the president, anyone in that office is forbidden from showing preference and biases.

I thought Buhari already explained this with the 5% analogy. Have you not any lesson from that?

You can't treat those who gave you 97% and 5% the same way.

Hello, everyone. I'm applying for the ICT M.Sc. programme. I made a payment of #7,500 this morning. I'm asked to provide referees who are academics and I honestly don't have the time at the moment.

How long can I pause with this registration?

What semester are we presently in and when is the next exam?

If I complete my registration next month, when will I be taking the first exam?

Thanks.

OVB123:
I think it should be; will you love and cherish this man in all conditions of life, and not for better and for worst because such marriage vow is outdated.

What's the difference? If things have not stopped getting worse for people in marriage, why is the cow outdated? It's like concealing that things can get worse in marriage with better words.

I think the groom should have insisted the vows are taken correctly. She would remind him in marriage of that that.

Crime / Re: Police Arrest Dispatcher Carrying Pistol In Dolphin Estate, Ajah by NapoleonHill: 10:58pm On Mar 24
immortalcrown:
Concealed as a package to be delivered or concealed to suggest the dispatcher owns it?

I don't mean to defend the dispatcher. I simply want to know if there is another person involved in the suspected offense.

Another question is what made the police to decide to search the dispatcher to an extent of finding a concealed gun on him? Was he a suspect before the search?

Nigerian bloggers and media companies are fond of serving the public half-baked bread. This is how they only reported that the soldiers killed in Delta State went for peace keeping, but didn't report what necessitated the peace keeping in the affected community.

Was actually expecting something as this and it turned out to be the first comment. Knew someone must find something wrong with the arrest.
Crime / Re: Ekiti Man To Die By Hanging For Killing Wife’s Accused Lover by NapoleonHill: 12:40pm On Mar 22
Lithiumite:


Provocation, yes!! But that arguement gets watered up in the face of facts revealing he planned the assault on the victim and also had accomplices......the act was premeditated simple......if it had been a spontaneous act where it happened in the heat of the moment when he caught them and killed them both there and then.....he has a good case.

Emphasis at bolded....if he even walked out of the room to go get a weapon to kill them,he would be guilty of murder because the law will prove that he still had enough time to think it through.

Whether he had enough time to think or not, he's not getting off the hook. That's my point. No one kills another and walks away in the face of the law except in self defense. Not even manslaughter.

Provocation may not earn him a death sentence but he would be still be gone for a long time.

Modified.

If provocation is a valid defense to get away with murder, the world will be in chaos. You can read more from the link below or do your own research. Let's not misinform people.

Read the story again....second to the last paragraph,even the honourable judge gave a latent reason for justification of what he did....I had known this several years back when I was much younger...let me help u here

Okay sir, but let me give you context to it.

The defence argued for provocation. Provocation would have earned him a lesser sentence but not let him off the hook.

I have also known this for many years now. Even manslaughter, which is committed without intent, will not get you off the hook.

You can look it up further online.

That's why men should never allow women matters stay too long in their heads....if she is cheating,why not walk away....their are a thousand and one more other ladies out there that needs you.

She has even helped your situation by ending your burden on her,she wouldn't be your responsibility anymore .....some men are just way too foolish.

The reason he was jailed was that the murder was premeditated.....if he had been patient enough to plan a way to catch them in the act and he then strikes the man or both to death immediately he catches them,he has a 99% chance of walking away free.

Provocation does not mean you will walk away freely, you may not just be put to death.

Even manslaughter, which killing someone by mistake, will not get you to walk freely. You may only bargain reduced sentence.
