My good friend... Don't let experience teach you!

True what you said, not everyone does well over seas but You have to know wise people don't run over seas because of basically work... They go because of their working system! Our system is irredeemably broken and it can't be fixed by these crop of leaders and followers!

Don't forget the pendulum could also swing where people who went there came back to establish something for themselves and see their old friends who refused to take the leap living in penury or outrightly dead!
too much sense

I think you make quite a valid point, because according to the guy, all of them have successful businesses or careers. So what more does he demand from Nigeria?

At first I thought his points resonated but now it seems entitled and unrealistic.
thats d pride in him speaking, if he was actually doing well in his business and career, all dis BS wud not come up in d first place.

I have said it before, and i'll like to repeat myself, the degree of miserability among Nigerians has ascended a dangerous dimension.
People will terminate their conscience in a bid to survive, some will commit suicide, some will commit murder out of frustration, crime rate will skyrocket, ritualism and voodooism will be a way of life,
Welcome to the jungle mehn!

You are the self centered entitled one here, see how angry you are over money that is not your own.
If you think it’s that easy why not hustle money and travel on your own?

You either wait till he can support you, or you find the money and go on your own. Stop bad mouthing your bro, it’s the same 24hrs in the day that God gave both of you.

So many ladies act this way, which is one major reason guys don't believe their no sex till marriage talks.

Imagine tomorrow when u meet a girl u want to marry and she is not a virgin and she tells u no sex till marriage when u have had a first hand experience of what u described above, tell me, won't u be laughing at the lady like she is mad

Ladies are their own problem.

You are dating a nice guy who agrees no sex till bla bla bla, u then laugh that this one na mugu and u go and meet one bad guy u feel is sexy enough and he will be f*ucking you thunder, and tomorrow u expect guys to buy the no sex till marriage bullcrap when u are not truly a virgin with hymen in tact Hmmm
I also discovered they use it as a control strategy in a relationship, one u agree to their no sex hullabaloo, they assume control of the relationship

This useless misfit of a barrister parading himself as commissioner for education is not normal.
The govt of delta as well as gov okowa r both mad. They declared free education but refused to fund the schools.
A state like delta so rich in oil shud not hav dat kind of sch in d first place.
Who will suspend d governor for neglecting his responsibilities?
The facilities r bad. Everytin is wrong wit Nigeria.

any presidential election involving an incumbent that requires such critical interpretation of our laws to determine a winner shows that the incumbent lost the elections
couragemurphy:
SEEING COMMENTS LIKE THESE FROM SO CALLED YOUTHS OF NIGERIA MAKES ONE ALMOST AGREE THAT, WE ACTUALLY HAVE MANY LAZY YOOTS IN THE COUNTRY. NO WONDER POVERTY IS ON THE INCREASE. PEOPLE ARE JUST COMMENTING NON-SENSE WITHOUT EVEN USING GOOGLE TO AT LEAST GET INFORMATION.

Well for the OP that asked, below is what Nigeria's constitution says and a simplified explanation for those with low comprehension ability.



Section 134(2) of the 1999 CFRN provides as follows:

(2) A candidate for an election to the office of President shall be deemed to have been duly elected where, there being more than two candidates for the election- (a) he has the highest number of votes cast at the election; AND

(b) he has not less than one-quarter of the votes cast at the election each of at least two-thirds of all the States in the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.



Explanation: Since there are more than two candidates in the elections (about 70, based on INEC’s count), this is the relevant section that applies to the 2019 election. The winner, according to the law, will be the candidate with the highest number of votes by simple majority and at least ¼ of votes cast in at least each of any 24 States in Nigeria, that is 2/3 majority

But what happens if nobody meets the above conditions? Here is what Section 134(3) prescribes:

(3) In default of a candidate duly elected in accordance with subsection (2) of this section, there shall be a second election in accordance with subsection (4) of this section at which the only candidates shall be –

(a) the candidate who scored the highest number of votes at any election held in accordance with the said subsection (2) of this section; and

(b) one among the remaining candidates who have a majority of votes in the highest number of States, so however that where there is more than one candidate with a majority of votes in the highest number of States, the candidate among them with the highest total of votes cast at the election shall be the second candidate for the election.

Explanation: If no winner emerges tomorrow based on an application of the provisions of s.134 (2), for instance, if the person with the highest number of votes does not get up to 25% of the votes in each of at least 24 states of the federation, then INEC shall conduct a second election. That second election will feature the candidate who has the highest number of votes and the candidate with the majority votes in the highest number of states.

But if we have a situation where more than one candidate has majority of votes in the highest number of states, for instance, two candidates won the majority in 14 states each, then the one who will participate in the second election shall be the person with the highest total number of votes among them.

All of that brings us to Section 134(4):

(4) In default of a candidate duly elected under the foregoing subsections, the Independent National Electoral Commission shall within seven days of the result of the election held under the said subsections, arrange for an election between the two candidates and a candidate at such election shall be deemed elected to the office of President if – (a) he has a majority of votes cast at the election; and

(b) he has not less than one-quarter of the votes cast at the election in each of at least two-thirds of all the States in the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Explanation: Within 7 days of the result of the main election, where there is no clear winner, INEC shall conduct the second election between the two candidates in line with s.134 (3). The winner of that second election must poll the highest number of votes by simple majority across the Nation and at least ¼ of votes cast in at least each of any 24 States in Nigeria, i.e. 2/3 majority principle.

But what if this condition is also not met? Section 134(5) prescribes the final solution:

(5) In default of a candidate duly elected under subsection (4) of this section, the Independent National Electoral Commission shall, within seven days of the result of the election held under the aforesaid subsection (4), arrange for another election between the two candidates to which the subsection relates and a candidate at such election shall be deemed to have been duly elected to the office of President, if he has a majority of the votes cast at the election.

Explanation: Where no winner emerges after the second election, INEC shall within 7 days from the date of the result of the second election arrange for another election (a third one) between the two candidates who took part in the second election and the Candidate with the highest number of votes by a simple majority shall be declared the duly elected President.
