Politics / Re: The Amount Paid To Agberos In Lagos Daily & Annually by oldtruth: 12:21pm
seunmsg:


The report would have been more useful if it was conducted in all the 36 states of the federation instead of singling out only Lagos state.

Can any comparative analysis be done with this report? So you see, that is where the problem is. We have a report that can’t be compared with other states. So, what’s the essence?

Again, where does the revenue goes to? For a fact, I know a certain percentage goes to state and local governments. So, why present it as if all the funds goes to just the state chairman? There are just too many loopholes in the report and it gives the impression that it was done for politics and nothing else.

Are you saying Agberos generate more revenue in other states than Lagos? Of what use is comparing all states? This is just an eye opener for every state who are complaining of lesser federal allocation. This is a good thing for the state to generate internal revenue.

Do you read any other meaning to the coallation?

seunmsg:
So, when are you guys doing an analysis of the amount paid to Agberos in Enugu, Abia, Rivers, Anambra, Kano, Abuja etc? Abi NURTW only exist in Lagos?

Analysis like this would make a lot of sense if it was done all over the country or at least in some selected states so that we can do a comparative analysis. So, why single out Lagos state?

Btw, NURTW is a trade Union. Trade Unions and professional bodies charge their members huge sums annually. As a member of ICAN, I pay 30k to the institute as annual subscription. I still pay for conference, AGM and faculty due without complaining. So, are members of NURTW complaining? Who forced them to be members of the union?

So sad. Analysis like this helps the government. Now it is also an eye opener for the government to do the needful. How much are these Agberos remitting to the government purse for better roan construction and the rest? Honestly, I still find your response so sad.

Now, in regards to force. Yes, they do force drivers to join them. Go do your research well. You even compared them with ICAN. Is this not sad?

Now examine what the man said and what these useless NFF are now saying? What will happen to him after unveiling him? To threatens his family in Nigeria if he has any? Or what?

The man is right because what will happen if Buhari was then physically abused? The French president who is miles ahead of Buhari was slapped and the guy was sentenced to death.

See Nnamdi Kanu forming "Buhari tormentor" that plans to go to Abuja to bring back Buhari's head.......... it's Kenyans that beat his head senseless before chaining him down, something that can never happen to him in Nigeria.

Same with Igboho that stormed the Nigerian border, chased the custom officers away and seized their weapons all the while parading as a leader of one of the largest tribes in Nigeria......its ordinary Benin Republic that caught him like a baby and chained him up inside a cell. I doubt if Nigerian authorities would have treated him like that.

This is evidence that Buhari is soft on anarchists heating up the country.

Soft on Boko boys as well. Honestly, there are so many foolish people in Nigeria. If not, why will a sane person support this devilish government that dines with terrorist? A time is coming and it is fast approaching when all this government supporters will be gathered up and burnt to ashes because it seems the man is not the problem but the foolish ones supporting him

Politics / Re: Ijede Road: Baba Suwe, 454 Other Property Owners Get ₦2.2 Billion Compensation by oldtruth: 8:55pm On Jun 10
soojar:


You people can jump to conclusions. Where did you read it that the compensation is for house destroyed?

The compensation varies in degrees depending on what the government destroyed. That is the reason you are seeing different amounts being given. For some people it's just the land the government took over, for some just the fence of the house that went, some didnt even deserve any compensation (because they built on unauthorized land) but they were still given something.

So whose fault with your above ranting? Citizens building on unauthorized land is whose fault? The citizen or the government? What you don't understand is that lands belongs to different people in Nigeria. It can belong to community, aboriginals and state? So sad that it is only when the government wants to claim lands that do cite some outdated laws? There should be a very clear definition of land in Nigeria. Do you know that the said land in question are mostly sold by the Omo oniles? Some will even sell to more than two people. They will take it to the court and the court will still award the said unauthorized land to the one with the better argument. Your said government land. grin grin

The earlier we all believe we don't have a government, the better it will be for all of us. E shock you?

Twitter can go to hell, we have been existing before twitter and will continue to exist as a nation after their exit.

IPOB miscreants can continue to rant and cry, nothing will change.

Even if they succeed in having their own country, someone should please remind the senseless biafrans that they already look like an island surrounded in Nigeria, just look at the map below....crushing them and their existence won't last more than a year.

Who told you money can't hold marriage? The only lesson learned in Bill's marriage crash is that, a man must always remain the head. Stop sharing your wealth equally. Remain the head and do the provision. Melinda is also rich because Bill's equality in marriage. I love and respect all gender but not a fan of equality in marriage. Man must be the head, period!

Business / Re: EscrowLock Wins $100m Facebook Grant by oldtruth: 6:22pm On May 26
LegendHero:
Nice one.

But I think the Nigeria media need some schooling in their reporting.

The $100m Facebook grant will be shared among multiple business and infact there are over 30,000 business or so that can qualify when Facebook announced the grant last year.

So these EscrowLock guys will get the cash & ad grant not even up to $10k at maximum but this report make it look like it’s $100m for a single company.

Imagine giving $100m each to 30,000 small businesses, how much is even Zuckerberg worth to start with?

In the USA here I think the grant is $4000 for small businesses ($2500 in cash and $1500 in optional ad credits). I don’t know the actual amount for Africa.

This is more detailed. Great info.

Congratulations to all winners
