executive12:I voted Gej in 2012 but didn't vote him in 2015. I voted PMB in 2015 but I stayed at home, eat and slept in 2019. I didn't vote anybody. That is the kind of person I am. U can't receive me twice.

solmusdesigns:the security votes they always allow governors to take, what did they expect them to do with it? If governors are allowed to collect security votes, they should also be allowed to provide security. I want us in the south to also launch a security outfit to compliment our Western brothers. Obaseki, Okowa, Udom, Woke, Ayade and Lyon should put their political differences aside and float a security outfit to protect the south. The earlier the better.

executive12:don't mention Obj in this. He only cries out anytime he doesn't benefit anything or his nominees don't get anything. We must take the bull by the horn now. We should never wait anymore for people like Obj to lead the way. Who would have even thought that Obj will collect money from Atiku during last election?. But sadly, it happened

solmusdesigns:I am a Nigerian and Edo. I have never denied it but I hate injustice. Nobody will ever consider floating a security outfit like Amotekun if the Federal govt has done it's duty of protecting everybody. I watched news of a man in Benin city who borrowed money to plant crops and the fulanis came to the farmland and stood watch while their cattle consumed everything in the man's farm. There are many other cases. The security agencies won't do anything even when u call them. This is purely evil. I still stand by my statement that whatever u do to protect yourself is constitutional.
|Politics / Re: Military Is What Empowered North. Under Democracy They Are Weak. by oz4real83(m): 5:59pm On Jan 19|
When our Southern Nigerian brothers are in the military, ministries and other security agencies, when a relative or friends wants their help in joining any of the agencies, they will keep giving excuses. They don't help anybody. But when a northern Nigerian is in any govt agencies, all his family members and friends will be recruited into such agencies. That is why u see so many northerners in Federal parastatals, ministries and other agencies. This is what is empowering the north. There are so many of their people in all the ministries, agencies and others. We are our own problems in Southern Nigeria. Many of us don't want to help others to climb while a northern Nigerian Carrys his people along.

ALAGOGO007:u are wrong. There are parts of nature that are sustainable and there are also others that are not. Where are the dinosaurs, mammoth, sabre cats, dragons and many other creatures today? They are all gone. There are many others that are about also going into extinction. There are some creatures in the world that are less than 100 in total worldwide. If we don't protect creatures like that, they will disappear forever.

This is time for Nigerians to unite against evil. Whatever you do to secure yourself is constitutional. No matter what anybody says or does, as far as Hisbah was allowed to operate in the north, Amotekun and others must also be allowed to operate in other regions.

Nooooo. U can snap pics with it then release the beautiful creature back to the ocean. Even though there is hunger in the land, we shouldn't kill and eat everything. Let's preserve a bit of nature for our kids and future generations.

Explorers:I never said only America was improving. I even went as far as saying that weapons used during vietnam may even be obsolete now. Was it only American that used weapons? . Every nation is growing and improving in warfare even if it is at very very slow pace like Nigeria.

|Romance / Re: Kano Father Gives Conditions To Son’s American Lover by oz4real83(m): 8:42am On Jan 19|
Our people will allow a family member to marry a very old foreigner of totally different religion and ethnicity but will never allow a family member marry another Nigerian no matter how decent, educated, worthy and industrious because of either religion or tribe. It is family war when an Edo wants to marry an Esan, war when hausa/fulani/muslim wants to marry a southern christian Nigerian, war when Igbos want to marry yorubas, war when hausa/fulani/muslim wants to marry another hausa/fulani that is a christian. An "igbo free" won't want to marry an "igbo osu" but will want an american orother foreigner that even fellowships in the church of satan! What an irony.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: U.S. Navy To Name New Aircraft Carrier After Black Pearl Harbor Hero(Pics) by oz4real83(m): 8:12am On Jan 19|
$13billion on just one aircraft carrier out of many others while Iran spends about $20billion on defence and they want to fight war with US. This is a joke of the century. War is different from terrorism. "War" is total attack, only your human side considers civillian welfare. I am not undermining Iran but when it comes to US, they are centuries apart. Peace is always better.
Back to the story, the African American had every reason to abandon ship and run away. America marginalised him because of his colour, he was even trained for the task all because of hs colour. They were even treating him as a second class citizen. But he didn't abandon his country in time of need. He fought and defended his country. He would have lost his life if not for God's grace. America didn't give him the reason for this but his patriotism was unshakeable. Nigeria is not what we want it to be but we shouldn't dump the country. We have no other country. Every fight we fight must be geared towards making the country better.

|Politics / Re: Falana Educates Malami On The Law Regarding Amotekun, Labels Him A Hypocrite by oz4real83(m): 6:11am On Jan 16|
No matter what anybody says, what I know is that the North is a role model for every other region in Nigeria. Hence, if the north is qualified to own and run Hisbah police, other regions can also own and run Amotekun and other outfits. If Sultan can announce public holidays even when he doesn't have the power, other traditional rulers in the other regions should also take on such power. If northern states can implement sharia in the north even though Nigeria is a secular state, somebody like wike is right to say that Rivers state is a christian state. If Fulani herdsmen and hisbah police can carry arms, then Amotekun and others can carry harms. It is a constitutional and human right to protect yourself. Whatever any region does to enforce that right is constitutional. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

|Politics / Re: Life Pension: SERAP Asks Court To Order 36 Govs To Publish Payment Details by oz4real83(m): 12:40pm On Jan 12|
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) should be ashamed of themselves whenever the issues of emoluments for politicians are being discussed. That is when you hear about 300% basic allowance for furniture, 500% for healthcare, 150% for security and many other precentage multiples as allowances for other issuee but when that of Nigerian workers are being discussed, you will hear 20% new increase of mininum wage for level 6 and below, 17% for levels 7-12, 15% for levels 13-15 . This is very shameful and not even up to 10% of what the politicians are getting even when everybody shops in the same market, buy fuel from the same filling station at the same price.
|Politics / Re: Nigeria Losing $1 Billion Annually To Medical Tourism by oz4real83(m): 11:33am On Jan 12|
PMB accounts for at least half of the money spent by Nigerians on medical tourism. I won't have blamed him if it was only during his first term in office he engaged on medical tourism because everything was already messed up before he came. Still Proceeding on medical tourism in his second term in office shows that he didn't do anything meaningful to change the status quo.
|Politics / Re: No Light For A Month Yet PHEDC Brings Bill Of Zero Naira (Photo) by oz4real83(m): 5:01am On Jan 10|
U don't know what u are in for. Bedc did the same thing to us in Benin. They always bring N14,000 estimated bill to my place every month even if they supplied power for only 2 days a month. For up to three months, they brought zero naira bill because there was no electricity supply at all that period. Bedc blamed TCN and TCN blamed Bedc for the problem. In the fourth month, they brought a bill of over N100,000. Which is more than an accumulation of those months they brought zero naira bills. Govt always collude with distribution companies to rob Nigerians. Prepaid meters are still unsupplied despite govt's order and nothing is still being done. Govt has even increased tarriffs as a solution to the problem! What an insult to Nigerians.

Assuming she gets a better job or an opportunity to improve her life through education, will u still insist she stays and continue being your nanny? Just learn to move on no matter how good she has been to your family. Don't create problems for yourself and family. If u love/like her so much, give her enough money as a pay-off from working for your family to enable her start a new life without her husband.

|Business / Re: Aliko Dangote’s Net Worth Grows To $14.8bn by oz4real83(m): 4:38am On Jan 03|
With the kind of atrocities and mass murders always committed by dangote trucks nationwide, I think dangote would have reduced from being a billionnaire to a millionaire due to frequent compensations he would have being paying to families of his victims if we were in saner climes. Unfortunately, Nigeria is not a sane society, Dangote trucks will keep on killing, he will keep on getting richer, never paying any compensations and the Nigerian govt keep on turning blind eye to his atrocities. Dangote trucks, bokoharam and killer herdsmen are the three greatest killers in Nigeria.

|Education / Re: Studying Mathematics is Killing Me by oz4real83(m): 5:20am On Jan 01|
This is how Nigerian universities keep killing bright students. I am 100% sure u never applied for mathematics because u had no passion for it and it doesn't move u. I also suspect the university gave u the course despite applying for medicine or another life science course and because u didn't want to spend another year at home, u accepted it. Now u are confused, bitter and frustrated. It is not too late. If u can't change your course for something u have passion for, then write jamb again. Passion drives goals. U can't succeed in a business u don't have passion for. I maybe wrong but that is my opinion. Good luck.

Please are there separate state executive council meetings for male and female govt officials in Kano state? If yes, who presides over the female meeting? It shouldn't be only in keke napeps men should be separated from women in Kano state, the kano state govt should also implement his archaic law on flights, state council meetings, markets, political rallies/parties and other places. Nigerian leaders keeps making laws to oppress and divide the masses.
