Education / Re: I Ran Into My Classmate After 10 Years And She Did This by picklighthouse: 12:19pm On Apr 22
i just had a rude awakening...

i feel so lost!

i ran into one of my school mates after 10 years... and there i was holding a black water proof bag while she called me from her mob...

no words, e b lyk say make ground swallow me!

we exchanged numbers and she showed genuine concern but its so fuxked up i cant dare ring her

am such a loser

Guy, I have read people's comments and your responses and honestly you marvel me.

My first question to you and maybe you should take this as a counsel: My friend never ever forget this, you don't have a mate.

Who are your mates please? Those you were born with the same year or these you entered school with same year? Are they those you graduated from school with or those you resumed employment with same day? Are your mates those you got married same year or those your wives put to bed with same month/day? Deliver yourself from that mentality of my mates, it doesn't exist. You are all on your individual lanes moving at your paces in life.

Now about the lady you saw and have vowed not to call, again you surprise me. Why are you so proud? And what does it matter if she has "made it" while you are still on your way? Have you given up on yourself already? So because you are holding a polythene bag along the road today, it means you will never drive your own car or be chauffeur driven in your life? What is wrong with you?

I will not tell you to bank on the lady helping you, so please don't put your mind there. But what if she could assist you? Probably through recommendation, contact or whatever way? So pride will stop you? You pray for God to bless you and he lets you meet a friend or an acquaintance, but arrogance won't let you speak him or her? Really?

Better pick up your phone now and call her. Speak with so much confidence, like someone who knows he has a bright future. Like someone who knows he might even be of assistance to the lady should she need your help. And not a loser begging for crumbs.

Guy, trust in God. Focus on your bright future. Continue to do your best. And before you know it, things will start easing up and you will soon have a great story to share with others too.

Good luck man.

Religion / Re: Oyedepo’s 100,000-Seater Auditorium ‘The Ark’ To Gulp ₦160 Billion by picklighthouse: 12:50pm On Apr 19
when the true followers of Christ came into Africa, they built schools, hospitals and other facilities for free...so you can see that what we have now as men of God are bunch of business men but I am.not suprise they are succeeding, what surprises me is how they manage to convince educated men and women to believe and contribute money for their business....read your Bible you will know the difference between men of God and those who are serving their belly....

Believe me I've read it and still do. And I can say we should be grateful to God we have the likes of these men in Nigeria at the moment, helping out with the deficit in our educational sector that our government can't meet.

Check the list of the private Universities in Nigeria and can't miss the obvious presence of Church owned institutions, all trying to put up world class standard facilities that our aged government institutions lack. Are they expensive? Well yes. But are they stiving for excellence in research and providing a propitious learning ambience for students? Yes!

Nigerians love good things and wants to have them. And infact believes they deserve them. But atimes we forget good things comes at a price. We have charlatans parading as real men of God. But we also have real men of God, people we should be proud of. Bishop Oyedepo is one of them. His criticism and stance may be hard atimes. But he truly loves Nigeria and wants to see her take her bride of place in the world.
Politics / Re: Sanwo-Olu Speaks On Projects Lagos State Is Embarking On by picklighthouse: 12:29pm On Apr 19
While any developmental projects are welcome.
Unnecessary boasting is not required.
The first statement is very misleading ,how can you claim you are the first subnational ,to build a metro.
If it's nigeria ,you are comparing ,then yes.
In Africa ,many cities have built their metro.
In world ,they are literally hundred of cities ,which has built they own metro,with little central government support

He was of course talking about Nigeria.

Religion / Re: Oyedepo’s 100,000-Seater Auditorium ‘The Ark’ To Gulp ₦160 Billion by picklighthouse: 9:50am On Apr 16
you forget to add that, those schools are not accessible to the poor members of the congregation due to high cost..even though it was built from their tithes and offerings

What people often miss again is that no Church puts a gun on any body's head to give money. If you cannot afford the fees of the school then go where you can afford their fees. It's simple actually.
Religion / Re: Oyedepo’s 100,000-Seater Auditorium ‘The Ark’ To Gulp ₦160 Billion by picklighthouse: 12:22pm On Apr 15
yes.. that is what Jesus would have wanted but remember Christianity of nowadays do not care about Christ but fat bank account...

Don't generalise. What makes you think the Lord Jesus doesn't want this built?

Nigerians often misdirect thier criticism. A Church has two Universities, (Covenant University, and Landmark University), Faith Academy and over 150 Kingdom Heritage Model Schools with none substandard in anyway. Yet they are the target of our criticisms? The Nigerian government that controls our state and national budgets, how have they faired in education?

People working in these institutions are not Congolese they are Nigerians. Imagine the families catered for, lives and living standards enhanced. But for the Church in this Country only God knows where the nation would have been when checking some indices.

Do you know the number of people that fly into the country annually for some of the Churches congresses and programmes? And how that affects aviation, hospitality, commerce, transportation and so on?

I can't wait to see that beautiful edifice completed. And I hope to visit the site one day too. By the way, that structure you see is designed by a Nigerian not a German or Chinese. Another proof these people seems to even believe in Nigeria than our often tongue in cheek government. Who would rather use BMW or Lexus cars than a home built Innosson.

Politics / Re: Qatar To Invest $5 Billion In Nigeria's Economy by picklighthouse: 11:55am On Apr 15

We and Qatar sell the same Oil, only difference is Qatar Government invest aggressively with their Oil income and spend the proceeds of the investment, while in Nigeria we don't invest, 200 million people just want to spend 2.3mb crude revenue

Qatar's national investment includes .... Qatar Airways, Harold's holdings UK (best UK malls and property development)

Lazy Nigerian Criminals and Politicians would tell you Goverment has no business doing business

The Excess Crude Account can be properly invested instead just keeping it in a bank only to later loot it


I never believed that, "government has no business in business" idea for once. If government doesn't jump start this economy, we will be at this low level of development for a long time.

Look at the NLNG for example. Shell holds a 25.6% share, NNPC (49%), Total (15%) and ENI (10.4%). It is a success story. It is among the best in the world. Government needs to take the lead. It may not manage the business directly because we don't have a good record of that. But at least start it, then hand it over to competent hands while retaining a good percentage.

Imagine replicating mega companies like that across board? In agriculture, transportation, aviation, IT, housing etc. They will all be world class and thriving. There is need for collaboration. For Nigeria to catch up with the rest of the world, government needs to be involved in business.
Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Will You Receive A 25k Salary With An Msc Degree Because You Can't Get Job? by picklighthouse: 1:57pm On Apr 09
I need opinions. Share your thoughts pls.
Will you take the job if you can't find a good paying one or move on?

Myles Monroe said "God hide things in things".

If you take it you would be productive. You would gerner experience you wouldn't have had sitting at home. You could meet people who would refer you elsewhere when they see how good you are at what you do.

I heard of a guy who took up a driving job at a company because that was what was available even though he had his Masters. One day he over heard the staffs talking about a job opening in the company and asked if he too could apply and they told him why not? The driver applied this week, the following week he was a parmanent staff holding a high position in the same company. Remember he had the added advantage of being temporary staff of the company?

So, look beyond the pay for now. Look at the opportunities.

Good luck.

Politics / Re: Buhari Didn’t Understand The Picture Ganduje Presented To Him, Kwankwaso (pic by picklighthouse: 10:16am On Mar 27


I disagree with Kwankwaso on this. Yes it is a federal road and the bridge should normally be the responsibility of the federal government. But such mindset is the very reason we are where we are as a country.

I doubt if Kwankwaso plies that road. The traffic along that route in the evening should be the worst in Kano now if I am not mistaken. With heavy duty vehicles, vans, scores of cars, tricycles all locked down at the same spot, and you want the governor to tell the President to come and construct the interchange? He thinks Kano is the only challenged State in the country, So that the President will say, we will do it for you immediatel? As a former governor too he should know it doesn't happen like that.

The earlier the governors take their State's development personal the better. That interchange is billed to be finished in18months. I can't wait for it to be completed. When you fly planes across the state all the time how would you know what people go through connecting to their offices and houses daily?

On this, i say way to go governor Ganduje.

Business / Re: Shoprite Concludes Sale Of Its Equity Stake (100%) In Its Nigeria Subsidiary by picklighthouse: 12:00pm On Mar 16
This is purely a business decision from all I see and has nothing to do with the Nigerian business environment. After all, the record posted showed profits and not losses. And they are not only divesting from their Nigerian company they already did so in Kenya. So it happens. Business managers know when to reduce investments in certain arears to reinvest the funds in other areas.

And as for the staff I don't think it will adversely affect them really, since another company will be taking over the management of the franchise. The new managers will still need experienced hands to man their operations to ensure profitability. It happened in Etisalat, now 9mobile with no major job losses. Inevitable tweaking here and there but it will be fine eventually.

Business / Re: Femi Otedola Visits ‘Dangote Wonderland’ Second Time in One Month (Photo) by picklighthouse: 9:51am On Mar 01

I just liked your comment.

Sometimes, people are so far away into the direction of the Advanced Economies that they fail to see the wrong analogy of those applications in Developing Economies like Nigeria.

The guy who was talking about Elon Musk and electric cars also doesn't realize that there are hydrogen cars.
Elon Musk has a serious competition too as recent investments are rising for hydrogen cars (cos it's green energy) and unlike electric cars, you don't need to park your car for long hours to charge. Buy instantly, and get moving. That's why Tesla is concerned about improving supercharging functions. It's more of a con than a pro comparatively.

That said, Africa needs to move beyond comparative analysis that serves no purpose and think at their level and pace of development, otherwise we will "over-copy" and get everything messed up. Industrialization is still one of the surest ways for wealth distribution.

Thanks so much. Your analysis is very in dept too.

On the contrary I think Dangote is more strategic than that. He knows his products would still be in high demand for a very longtime to come. The refinery isn't just for PMS or diesel. It is built to produce the best grade of fuels that would be needed in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Yes alternative energy sources, green energy and all that, but none of that is replacing PMS anytime soon. And what about aviation? Are we not going to keep flying? His refinery produces the best grade of it anywhere in the world. Even Elon Musk would need that if he wants to move around and get his aircrafts into space.

Fertilizer? Agriculture is presently the new bride in Africa and around the world. Believe me, he and his team thought it out so well to commit about 20billion in US dollars into it. The guy is one smart industrialist.

That, right there is the problem. Many people think not having money is the problem, but believe me not being wise(foolishness), is a bigger problem.

Let's forgot about the fact that she stole the money for a moment. Do you know if she was given the money free, she would have done the same? How do you have a N80,000 and N10,000 is a gift to someone and a whooping N70,000 is expended on a single item? How in the world?

Unfortunately financial intelligence is not thought in school but without it people can hardly become rich. Many people would have acted the same way if they had a windfall. Your first hit is either an expensive phone or an expensive car or even building a house. You don't do any of that with your first windfall! There is difference between asset and liability.

Wisdom is the principal thing guys.

Humans are generally amazing. Our thoughts, views, actions are so diverse even on the same subject. And I guess that's what makes us unique.

Back to the contemporary issue at hand. I have often wondered why we just seems to conclude all the crimes perpetrated now in the Southwest are done by herdsmen. How logical is that? Suddenly all the kidnappers are herdsmen no Southerner does kidnapping again. I even saw a video of an abandon bus in the middle of the high way where kidnappers were alleged to have operated and I heard someone saying "see what the herdsmen have done". Really? Has it been investigated?

Herdsmen could be kidnappers of course, but why do we assume our own people are now suddendly immune to the horrible crime?

This Sunday guys house is burnt and the assumption making the rounds now is that herdsmen did it. Really? If you were a herder that the whole community is asking for your head on a platter, would you be that audacious to go past all the security around that area and walk into the house of such a guy to burn it down? How we think a times is amazing.

For those beating the drums of war should better be careful. And let all right thinking person apply tact in the matter at hand. The Southwest can not afford to be thrown into pandemonium over allegations and assumptions. Even if herdsmen are fingered in the crimes happening all around now, how we handle it is also important. You don't cut off the head because you have headache.

You unleash thugs on a tribe in the Southwest, think of what could happen to Southerners in the North. Think. Please let the young people just sit down and think. This is not Endsars. It can spiral out of control in no time consuming everything and everyone.
