|Politics / Re: Some States Have Almost 24 Hours Supply- Fashola (video) by princejenks(m): 12:07pm On Mar 28|
The fact is that there are some parts of the country that have always enjoyed constant power from way back,even before this administration came into power so if power output increases,such places can actually boast of 24hr power supply but that shouldn't be used as a yardstick to measure whether power supply has improved generally across the country,rather,areas which hitherto are having less than 5 hrs power supply in a day but can now boast of 12-15hrs is where we should be looking at to rate this government for any improvement in power and not looking at regions that have always enjoyed constant power supply.
|Travel / Re: Several Boeing 737 Max 8 Pilots In U.S. Complained About Suspected Safety Flaw by princejenks(m): 6:29pm On Mar 13|
Good thing US airlines are still flying it cos doing so sends a strong message that they still have confidence in Boeing,an American company. What's wrong can easily be fixed,a little patience is required for the investigation to be completed to know the cause of the latest crash by this same 737 8 max just months after the last one ocurred.

|Politics / Re: Nigerians React To President Buhari's Video Begging For Re-election by princejenks(m): 12:20pm On Feb 11|
This coming presidential election is not a time to reward arrogance and contempt,this gesture is rather late in the day. For a president who by his own admission confirmed he failed,his wife also confirmed same and even his most loyal supporters know this and some have even admitted openly their mistake in supporting him in 2015 while others are too proud to admit openly,this coming election is a referendum on lack lustre leadership,incompetence,clannishness and aloofness,the real change is imminent,you can't stop a moving train. Nigeria is too big for one man to act like he wants without consequences,we all need to put him in his rightful place and speak very loudly with our votes cos Nigeria deserves better

|Crime / Re: How I Was Scammed In A Broad Day Light In Abuja. by princejenks(m): 1:56pm On Feb 07|
Chai! the part that pained me was that he still didn't reveal that person to you after walking to the 11th pole! Seriously,what's really going on in abuja these days,the other day my gf told me how her friend lost her samsung that costs over a 120k to some guy who gave her a lift only for him to ask to see her fone after she received a call,dude later stopped the vehicle and told the lady to get out cos he wanted to make a U-turn,before she knew what's up,he had zoomed off with her fone. Next day my gf was going to work,she had dropped at her main busstop and was trekking to her office cos it's a trekkable distance when a guy offered her a lift,next he started proposing to her as soon as she entered but she wasn't responding cos she had her earpiece on,he snatched her fone which she'd plugged her earpiece to listen to her favorite radio programme then he came down after pinning the locks and started embarassing her with a public proposal with her fone still with him,she didn't give a ruck about what he was saying but was yelling at him to give her back her phone which he reluctantly did after some people close to her work place started gathering to know what the matter was. These folks are getting very brazen these days dats why u don't give them face or audience when they start their rooster and bull stories,I just zoom off,no time!

|Business / Re: CBN Debunks Media Report On Forex Scam by princejenks(m): 8:22am On Feb 05|
it's a widely documented fact,even the emir of kano and former cbn governor alluded to our having different exchange rates as an impediment to business and an avenue for a few to amass wealth through round tripping. Nothing much has changed even with this current regime,only the players have,it was even very worse at the heat of the recession though it's more coded now. Denying something that's happening in government quarters doesn't mean it's not happening,it's just standard practice to do so in order to save face

|Politics / Re: Pendulum By Dele Momodu: Between Buhari And Atiku, My Candid Forecast by princejenks(m): 3:35pm On Feb 02|
Guestlander:like I mentioned previously,I'll not come here and defend pdp that it didn't waste humongous resources that could've have transformed Nigeria,especially in the area of power and other infrastructure.
Since my secondary school days,i've been taught how Nigeria needs to diversify and move away from a monolithic economy dependent on oil. Successive governments have tried to put policies in place to achieve this but interruptions from the military curtailed this as you rightly observed. We had to practically start all over again in this pursuit for diversification in 1999,while I agree we've been high on policy formulation than on policy implementation but some progress is being made,however little.Evidence of this was when we rescaled our economy,we discovered other non oil sources made very significant contribution to our Gdp.
A lot of policies were developed in the obj years but by the time he got down to implementation,he ran out of time,then came yaradua and goodluck. The former cancelled some agreements already reached on privatisation slowing down progress while the latter may have been considered wasteful but the fruits of that massive spending by that administration is what apc is leveraging on today as achievements.
When the recession set in,I seriously hoped this administration will take diversification more seriously than ever before but what has happened since we overcame the scary period,all that noise about diversification suddenly went down. All we hear is about how they've revolutionized agriculture yet we still import what we eat,they say they are spending more than any government on infrastructure yet we haven't seen that much improvement in power,even the rail they like to claim as achievement was a carry over of extensive design and procurement by previous administration which they only expanded upon by adding new lines.See,this government has been high on making promises than on actual planning cos they got into power without extensive plans on how they'd achieve the promises,before they realized their mistake,it was already late in the day. They now realized the only way to appear to be doing something is completing abadoned or uncompleted projects of previous administration while they now forged their own document on the way forward after gleaning from other documents they met on ground. I wouldn't want to dwell much on how much the last administration left by way of savings but we are all aware of the excess crude account and sovereign wealth fund and how much was left,even as this administration is quick to claim it met empty treasury but like I mentioned previously,the policies of this administration rather than help encourage business moreless choked businesses and led to massive job losses. A Well thought policy would've found a way to help businesses survive recession not stifle existing ones. The key to diversifying our economy is to encourage business and enterprise but this government is doing very little in that area rather coming up with policies like tradermoni that can't lift anyone out of poverty.
|Politics / Re: Pendulum By Dele Momodu: Between Buhari And Atiku, My Candid Forecast by princejenks(m): 2:23pm On Feb 02|
Guestlander:no one is dumping everything at the door step of this administration but it should be reminded that it has played its own part in worsening things. Yes,we may argue pdp did mismanage humongous resources but it won't change the fact that it can boast of some achievements it made in those years no matter how hard this administration tries to vilify the pdp led administration,facts are sacred,can apc pls honestly state their achievements devoid of pdp input?
Obj tried to form a government of national unity by even inviting people from other parties into his government and successive governments after him have tried in their own ways to foster national unity. Yes of a truth ethnic sentiments was used in the previous elections to divide the country but then rather than this current president to try and calm frayed nerves instead by his words and subsequent actions rather escalated things to what it is right now. Call obj anything you like,but he represented a father figure across ethnic lines,can buhari honestly claim to be that by his words and actions so far?
On the downturn in the economy caused by recession,buhari government whether it likes it or not will have to accept its share of the blame no matter how much it wants pdp to take all of the blame cos you can't claim the achievements of previous administrations cos government is a continuum while rejecting the liabilities,no it's not done.
More directly,buhari's government contibuted to the recession by its policies and lack of it. Firstly,it refused to constitute its cabinet on time causing anxiety and confusion among investors who were waiting on the government for its next move. Recall that some portfolio investors had already taken their funds out of the country before the elections,buhari's lack of clear direction by way of policies worsened the situation. Even when he finally did constitute his cabinet,he didn't pick very qualified persons to handle the economy but rather left it to rookies like the former finance minister,the vice president and the other lawyer that heads budget,such that when international agencies were telling us long before we entered recession,kemi adeosun quickly denied,said recession was only a word then later said it was technical. When we came to the reality of us being in a recession,we had a series of conflicting policies from cbn and finance ministry which worsened the situation. Though with benefit of hindsight,the cbn tried to do the right thing given the circumstances we found ourselves at the time,dwindling foreign reserves which couldn't be used to defend the naira,but lack of synchronization between cbn and the finance ministry deepened the problem at implementation seeing naira rise to over 500 naira to a dollar till emefiele was given the go ahead to carry out his plan without undue interference. In summary,what am saying is buhari government wasted too much time and lacked quality personnel to handle the situation better,rather they were busy learning on the job

bender79:must commmend the effort,nice try but I can tell you for free that jigawa is out of it, ditto for some other northern states. Your figures for the northern states are by far too optimistic in favour of the incumbent cos even they themselves know it's gonna be war between apc and pdp,the reason they are preparing for contigencies by having their rigging formula and positioning judges that would determine the case in their favour

|Politics / Re: Pendulum By Dele Momodu: Between Buhari And Atiku, My Candid Forecast by princejenks(m): 12:24pm On Feb 02|
Very aptly constructed piece but sai barbarians will not look past the personality and focus on the points raised. I was discussing atiku's chances with a friend yesterday and he raised similar points such that when we analyzed state by state and by regions,it became very clear to me that atiku can win cos this coming elections is the incumbent to lose cos it seemed he was cursed to never get anything right from the beginning which has produced enough ammo for the opposition to use to get rid of him. Change is inevitable,only buhari's supporters are blind not to see it coming early enough like others have

For a president who has comprehension issues caused by old age induced dementia,how will he get to understand the intricacies and complexities of the numerous challenges facing the country besides chanting his programmed response of fighting corruption to solve our problems which has been flawed as an economic policy? Given the state the president is currently,he can do very little without help from the people in his close caucus whom he has delegated power to and they've already shown us in the last four years how unnationalistic their true intentions are,they are not ready to take Nigeria to any next level but only willing to prosecute their own selfish agenda while giving back a token to nigerians who desire quality leadership at a time like this,we deserve better than what we are getting. We owe it to our unborn generation to fix this buhari mistake of 2015,his likes have no business presiding over a multiethnic,multireligious and dynamic country like Nigeria,never again!
