Please please and please... Mods; pls move this piece of info to FP! My people are suffering!
Some people might say its exaggeration, bt in actual sense, its d truth.
I am a native of Ikire, a town in Osun state, about 4km from Ibadan.
Wen people are complaining about power supply in their areas, I see it as a centurial joke. Really, because my people have not had electricity supply from the DISCO or PHCN for a accumulated 7-days in the last 10years!
In the last 3 months, there av not even been a minute supply in the town.
The residents are not talking, the political class is silent, the royal council is dormant! But someone still needs to speak up for my people!
This town is in total neglect! Despite its popularity for the production of Dodo Ikire, and agricultural settlements it harbors.
No water supply to any community in the town, No power in the town, Bad roads everywhere... And the communities are filled with uneducated/ half educated children I don't see any future for in this situation.
I am only priviledged to be among the lucky few... MY PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING!!!

Asisat Oshoala makes goal scoring debut in Arsenal ladies win
The forward marked her debut with a goal as the Gunners dismissed Reading women on Wednesday Nigeria international Asisat Oshoala made a goal-scoring debut in Arsenal Ladies 3-1 victory against Reading FC Women on Wednesday night at Meadow Park. The Nigerian’s first appearance for the Gunners few days after her switch from Liverpool Ladies became a reality as she started against Reading in her second season in the English Women's Super League. Dutch star Dominique Jansse put the Gunners ahead in the 34th minute with the woodwork denying Oshoala of her debut goal nine minutes later before the break. On the resumption of the second half, the 21 year old sailed into the box and rounded the visitors goalkeeper before slotting into an empty net her first goal to double Arsenal's lead. But Boho Sayo pulled one back for Reading in the 58th minute before Danielle Carter extended the Gunners' lead in the 70th minute to secure victory. The impressive victory for Oshoala who last for 90 minutes in their opening game of the season temporarily puts the Pedro Martínez Losa's side atop of the WSL with three points and two goals. They will next travel to Manchester to face Manchester City Ladies in their second game of the season on Monday, March 28.

|Business / Making Money Off A Ailing Business: The Palm Oil Business by OteDOLLAR(m): 11:30am On Mar 20, 2016|
When most people hear that palm oil business is very
lucrative, they quickly dismiss the idea of taking a plunge
because starting up a palm oil processing company requires
much more capital than they can ever afford. But the truth is that you too can tap from the opportunities in the palm oil business without necessarily having to set up your own processing company or starting a palm plantation. How? You can achieve this by buying and selling palm oil for profits. In fact, you can make millions just by buying, storing, and reselling palm oil. One of Nigeria’s billionaires, Orji Uzor Kalu started out in business as a palm oil trader and he made millions from this business. Before I discuss the steps involved in buying and selling palm oil for profit, let me enlighten you about the commodity and its marketability. ( I am assuming you do not know anything about it before now. Pardon me if you
already did ).
4 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD START TRADING PALM OIL FOR PROFITS
Palm oil is a natural extract from the red palm fruit.
It is orange or yellowish red in color, and it is widely
produced in West African countries and in Far East
countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia. In these
countries, it is widely consumed by the natives, and it
is also exported to neighboring countries.
Palm oil owes its huge demand in countries such as
Nigeria and Malaysia in part to its huge population
and health benefits. Palm oil is a good source of
vitamin E, which promotes healthy skin. It is also rich
in carotene, which enhances vision. And most
importantly, unlike most other oils, it doesn’t
promote the accumulation cholesterol and low-
density lipoproteins that are harmful to the body.
Another reason why palm oil sells well in the above-
mentioned countries is its relative cheapness when
compared with other edible oil, and its relatively long
shelf life. With proper storage, palm oil can last up to
one year without losing its quality.
In Nigeria and other West African countries, virtually
every household cooks with palm oil. So, you can
imagine how much profit you can make from the
market in these countries.
With the above in mind, let’s now discuss how the business
of buying and selling palm oil works. It goes without saying
that this business simply involves buying palm oil and
selling palm oil, but there are two methodologies of running
this business; and you are free to choose any of the two or
even combine both.
HOW TO MAKE MONEY BUYING AND SELLING PALM OIL
1. Choosing your palm oil business model
The first model involves buying the commodity, adding
some margin, and selling to the next available buyer.
Though you won’t make huge profits with this model, you
will make smaller profits on a consistent basis. The
downside of this model is that you may be badly hit by
sharp drops in the price of the commodity, which happen
occasionally. But there are two sides to this possibility; you
can make huge profits during occasional price surges as
The second model involves buying during the time of the
year when the commodity is abundant, and selling only
when it becomes scarce. Usually, in Nigeria, palm oil sells
cheapest between February and April ( because it is
abundant during that time of the year), and market prices
go up between September and January.
So, if you buy 1000 liters of palm oil when it’s cheap, keep
it, and sell it when the prices go up, you can make between
100% to 200% profit or even more depending on the
scarcity and on your location within Nigeria. It’s the same
story in other countries where there is huge demand for
In Nigeria, a 20 liter can of palm oil sells for N3,000 –
N4,000 during the abundant season ( depending on your
location). During the scarcity period, that same 20 liter can
goes for N6,500 – N8,000. In Nigeria, palm oil can be
sourced at a cheap price in places such as Edo, Delta, Abia,
Imo, etc and resold at a profitable price in places such as
Kano, Lagos, Kaduna, Abuja, etc. Most times, traders record
huge profits by adopting the second model; but it usually
requires larger capital than the first model. Having
explained the methods of running a palm oil trading
business; let’s now discuss the steps involved in starting the
HOW TO START BUYING AND SELLING PALM OIL FOR PROFITS
1. Get your storage space
You will need to secure some pace for storing your palm oil,
regardless of the business model you choose to adopt. If
you have some storage space right in your home, that
would guarantee rest of mind. But it would be better to
have your storage space close to where your customers are.
So, renting a shop near a local market around you is a very
smart idea. In Nigeria, palm oil is best stored in big blue
drums / barrels, in a cool place away from direct sunlight. It
takes about 8 – 10 (20liter) gallons to fill a barrel.
2. Arrange with suppliers
Aside customers, your business needs suppliers to thrive,
since you are not processing the commodity yourself. Try
to find suppliers that produce high quality palm oil. You
may need to conduct thorough research before making
your choice because the success of your business would
hinge largely on the quality of the palm oil you get from
your supplier. From personal experience, i can say that
good palm oil can be sourced from Imo state in places such
as Ngor Okpala, Ihitte Uboma, Orlu, etc.
3. Decide on transport arrangements
You would need to transport your palm oil from the supplier’s location to your shop or storage location. And in some cases, you would need to transport palm oil to your customers as well. ( In fact, you can make more money by charging extra for delivery. Buyers would readily pay for the convenience ). Most times, palm oil are best transported in gallons and if you are transporting from Eastern Nigeria to either the Western or Northern part of the country, you can use the services of popular transport companies such as The Young Shall Grow Motors, G.U.O Motors, etc. If you have a van or truck to yourself, that would be fine. But if you don’t have one, you would need to hire one each time you need to transport your commodity.
4. Market and sell your product
To make profit, you need to find buyers for your product.
You would easily attract them if you offer high quality palm
oil for unbeatable prices. Depending on your chosen model,
you can choose to sell your commodity to the next available buyer, or wait until prices go up before selling.
|Business / How To Start A Business With No Cash by OteDOLLAR(m): 11:09am On Mar 20, 2016|
You don't always need money to start a business. You can become an entrepreneur even if you have no startup cash. You can start many service-based businesses with no cash outlay. You can even make a business out of selling used furniture, appliances and equipment you already own. If you really feel you need cash to get started, however, you can use someone else's money. Loans and credit cards allow you to
begin a business venture without spending any of the cash in your pocket.
Choose a service business for which you don't need supplies and equipment or already have the things you need. For example, you may start a web design or lawn care business without incurring any startup costs.
Start a business selling goods you already have. For example,
you may place your used clothing and furniture on consignment or sell it through websites that allow you to post free for-sale ads. You may even find opportunities to post free listings on auction sites. Once you've sold your possessions, use your profits to go flea market shopping for more items to sell.
Use drop-shippers, which will stock and ship products for you, so all you have to do is make sales and collect payments.
Find a business partner who has money to invest in the
business. Because your partner will provide the startup funds
for your business, you can agree to do most of the initial work to make your partnership fair. Alternatively, you may agree to allow your partner to keep all of the initial profits to repay him for your part of the startup money.
Choose a business opportunity that will provide products,
startup supplies and equipment on credit. Although you will
have to pay for these things eventually, you can get started with no cash.
Use a credit card to pay for a license. Many jurisdictions require business licenses, so you may not avoid this expense. With a credit card, you can postpone your out-of-pocket expense until the bill is due.
Create a free website. Many web hosts offer free website hosting as well as tools you can use to design a business website.
Barter for your startup needs. For example, if you need business cards, offer to design a free website for a business card designer in exchange for free business cards.
Create your own marketing materials. You can create fliers,
business cards and other marketing materials with the
computer, printer and paper you already have.
Ask friends and family members to help you get customers via word of mouth. You may secure your first sale this way, without spending a dime.
Apply for a loan to fund your startup endeavors. You will
eventually have to repay the loan, but you won't need out-of-
pocket startup cash.
Use a payment processor to handle payments to your business. You can typically get an account with a payment processor for free. You will pay a transaction fee for payments, but they are taken from the money your customers send.
Reinvest initial sales into your business to get additional
supplies, products or equipment you need. You can even use
your first several sales to open a business bank account and pay for advertising.

We all can help ourselves to be millionaires even billionaires without literally having to lift a finger.
It still sounds unbelievable right?
What if everyone donates 500naira each to a person and the next week to another person?
We have hundreds of friends and families who enjoy a better living standard than the others.
What if 1000 nairalanders donate to someone this week, make him a millionaire and the next week we all donate to another... In a short while we all become millionaires
Except its just a dream and we really can't help each other!
NB: i know there are thieves that will wantu collect bt won't donate shaaa

|Politics / Aregbesola Commends Jonathan For Signing Female Genital Mutilation Law by OteDOLLAR(m): 12:28pm On Nov 11, 2015|
Aregbesola Commends Jonathan For Signing Female Genital Mutilation Law
The Governor of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has commended former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for prohibiting female genital mutilation in Nigeria.
The governor gave this commendation while speaking at a programme organised by United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) and Shericare Foundation (SCARF) at the opening of a High-level meeting on female genital mutilation in Osogbo.
Aregbesola stated that if the former President has been alleged of not performing by majority of Nigerians, he must still be lauded for signing into law on 5th May 2015, the Female Genital Mutilation Laws.
He held that it must not go unnoticed that it was under the administration of Jonathan that it became a crime for anybody to mutilate the genital organ of a female in the name of circumcision or any other guise.
The governor described the practice as bad, borne out of primitive idea of the effort to continually dominate females in the society which must be stopped by all well-meaning Nigerians.
Aregbesola averred that government at all levels must ensure that they work towards the eradication of the act which has no advantage whatsoever.
He said, “If I have been saying that the former President has not done any good for the country like most people have been saying, I want to use this opportunity to commend the former President for just one good thing he has done on the female genital mutilation law.
“Former President Goodluck Jonathan did one good thing against Female Genital Mutilation, which makes it a crime for anybody to mutilate the genital organ, there is a law signed by him on the 5th of May this year.
“Everybody must work hard to ensure that the practise is done away with, besides the damage it has done to women, it has create health challenges like acute urinary retention, delvery and child birth is affected, infection and many other complications.
“We have not established any scientific advantage let alone any religion supporting the practise. It is just an human design to suppress the other sex. We must all UNFPA and SCARF to tell our society that an end must be put to Female Genital Mutilation in our society and Nigeria”.
Earlier, the wife of the of the Osun Governor and the President of the Shericare Foundation (SCARF) Mrs Sherifat Aregbesola in her welcome address described female genital mutilation as primitive.
Mrs. Aregbesola stated that it is disturbing that the primitive practice is prevalent in Osun, saying all hands will be on deck at ensuring that the archaic practice is eradicated in a no long distant time.
She chided the procedure of female genital mutilation which involves partial or total removal of the external female Instruments, noting that the procedures intentionally alter and cause injury to the female genital organ.
President of SCARF stated that the country has existing national policies and law banning female genital mutilation, adding that a recent survey conducted by United Nation Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) revealed a prevalence of 27percent for women ages 15-49 and 19.2percent for girls 0-14 years.
She added that if the present trends continue, two million, seven hundred and eighteen thousand girls born between 2010-2015 will be at risk of experiencing female genital mutilation by 2030.
She said, ” I thank you all for honouring the call to this notable and historic meeting on our collective drive to eradicate a practice that bear no good for girls and women.
“Our meeting here today will be the first in the series of high level collective efforts initiated by the UNFPA to eradicate female genital mutilation. Female genital cutting of female in our society is very disturbing”. She told the gathering.
Speaking also, the country representative of the UNFPA, Ms. Ratidzai Ndhlovu, charged Osun to work and ensure the eradication of the practice.
She stressed that Osun has the highest prevalence rate of 7.6percent followed by Oyo state with 7.2percent rate.
The UNFPA boss added that it is important for the wives of governors in the country and other stakeholders to ensure strict compliance with the existing law on female genital mutilation and also the stepping up of advocacy.
In attendance was the wife of the Oyo state governor, Mrs Florence Ajimobi, the wife of the governor of Ekiti State, Mrs Feyi Fayose, representative of the wife of the governor of Lagos, Imo and Ebonyi, Iyaloja of Osun, Alhaja Awawu Asindemade among others.
