Politics / Re: Nigeria's Five Largest Sectors In 2003, 2013 & 2023 -- Statisense by rman: 5:41am On Jun 09
Meaning agriculture have been declining hence the high rise of prices of food items .

Why should things we don't import like yams, garri be selling at ridiculous prices?

It may also mean, as the GDP grew across that period, the rate of growth of others eg IT and telecoms , is much more faster than agriculture.

It may necessarily not be declining but growing at a very slow pace.

Politics / Re: Dangote Pegs Minimum Of 1Million Litres/Marketer As Diesel Sale Begins by rman: 3:17pm On Apr 02
Most marketers buy 33000 liters at once. One million liters would be over one billion naira.

Who is this guy looking to sell to? Cos I don't think he's selling to Nigerian marketers. Unless maybe major marketers.

But those ones will only turn around to sell to independent marketers who buy 33000 liters at once.

Middle man things 😂


To name a few can do a million litres.

Travel / Re: Lagos Slashes Blue Line Rail Prices By 50% In Line With Sanwo-Olu's Directive by rman: 3:15pm On Sep 04, 2023
I really have a problem with those of you who toe this line of thinking. I'm sure you support a hike in university fees? You need to understand it's a two way thing. The abroad taxes some of una dey eye, they have at least a minimum acceptable standard of living. Do we have any in Nigeria?

Is train the only means of movement along that route?

You guys like quoting developed nations but are not willing to pay for the same quality of service like they do.

Why slash prices from day one? Subsidizing train transport again. There is nothing like taxes here. If the T-fare has been subsidized, it is just a matter of time before operations grind to a halt.

Unless you can prove the initial prices released were exploitative, it is a wrong move.

Yes I support a hike in university fees. We cannot call our universities trash, when what we pay as fees is also trash. We also need to pick one.

Nigerian refineries ..

All were ruined due to action like this by the government. Let customers pay the right prices so the infrastructure can be maintained and service level retained. Unless the prices were exploitative before, this move will back fire.

Phones / Re: Starlink Will Shake Up The Internet Market! What do you think? by rman: 12:47pm On Feb 01, 2023
You're comparing different categories of Internet service providers.

MTN, GLO, AIRTEL, etc are mobile internet service providers.

Starling is a broadband internet service provider. You can't use starlink with your phone except through WiFi. The equipment are not portable. Only good for home and office use.

They are completely different niches. MTN, GLO, Airtel, etc will ALWAYS have their place.

You are the only one that understands the difference in market niches.

Peeps are commenting as if they will be carrying the satellite around. MTN an co are predominantly playing in the mobile space. And the larger percentage of internet access is on mobiles.

Politics / Re: Peter Obi: Subsidy Must Go, I Will Remove It by rman: 10:21am On Jan 09, 2023

The world market price of petrol for any given day can be found here


That's all there is to it. That's the price at which NNPC can buy it anywhere in the world.

Right now, at this moment, the price of a gallon of petrol is $2.30.

4 litres = 1 gallon, so one litter price ~ $0.60

Convert to naira using CBN rate to get ~ 275.

Convert to naira using free market rate ~ 460.

So the price of fuel in Nigeria without fuel subsidy should be above ₦275.

The price without forex subsidy should be ₦460.

There's no mystery to this. The info is freely available. Anyone can call the sales office of any refinery in North America, Asia or Europe and this is the price that will be quoted.

This is the price at which Dangote must also sell or his refinery will shut down. The only way he can sell for less is if the government pays him a subsidy. Are Nigerians ready for the Nigerian government to pay Dangote ₦2 trillion per year to supply fuel for Nigerians?

If Nigerians want their country to prosper, then all subsidies must go. Aside health and elementary education, government should get out of the market. Allow Nigerians to produce, buy and sell whatever they want to or from any country or any person at their freely chosen price.

Yes Nigerians will suffer but that is how other people suffered to make their countries better. Everything isn't about today, think about 20 years from now.

It's OK too if Nigerians don't want to suffer, it's very understandable.

Just know the choices available are set and unavoidable.


God bless you!

Travel / Re: Which State Has The Worst Capital In Nigeria? by rman: 7:00am On Sep 16, 2022
If the state capital is not in close proximity to Lagos or Abuja and there are no local flights going there daily, then it may not be as developed as you assume.

Any state capital local airlines find worthy of flying into daily gives you and indication the level of development and Comercial activities there.

Politics / Re: October 31 Deadline Is Not Feasible As 140 Million Nigerians Yet To Get NIN by rman: 8:38am On Oct 02, 2021
Reading the comments, there seems to be a lot of grumbling and anger over the government's decision....to have a national database.

The funny thing is that if we didn't have a database, these same people would be still grumbling and complaining that Nigeria is not among the advanced nations of the world....

And the funny thing is that back in the day a lot of people were backing the NIN thing because it would somehow show 'the true population of the country.

There is nothing wrong with having a NIN. People should go out and get a NIN if we don't have one. The government should extend the deadline and provide more opportunities for people to register...and maybe make it possible to register kids at birth....

Saying this does not mean I support or like Buhari. But we have had this NIN issue on our head for over 40 years....and several failures. Time we made sure this current effort...ongoing since 2013, works.

At last someone that gets it.

Complaining and lamenting now seems to be the new cool.

NIN is very important if we get it right.

By your logic, being straight isn't natural either, because straight men deliberately target little girls too.

Being straight and gay should never be up for debate. They are not the same because there is a reason for differentiation of the male and female anatomy.

Since we are the woke generation where everything can be questioned, then I agree with you.

If a male child molestation by a male and female child molestation by a male are exactly the same , then no issue.

I think the people in USA are right to say no one should impose a sex on a baby anymore until they are old enough to decide.

How am I sure I am male sef ?

I am agreeing with you .. you are right , I am wrong . Bye

Did I call you names in any of my post ?

I do not believe anyone is naturally born gay, if you have a superior argument, your responsibility is to state your superior argument not result to name calling.

You may not have stats to back something up - yet you just made the claim anyway. How many gay people have you met and how many of them who you have met "target young boys"?

if you are not gay, there is no need to engage you further.

I will only respond to gay people going forward.
Celebrities / Re: Fashion Designer, Tom Ford Loses His Husband, Richard Buckley To Death At 72 by rman: 4:38pm On Sep 21, 2021

I see.

Please, read the question in bold once more and decide for yourself if the logic is really error proof. You're saying that some gay people targeting underage boys implies that being gay ain't natural? Do you know how many straight men abuse underage girls in a day? Let's use NL as a sample; do you have any idea how many front page threads are about men abusing kids every now and then? How many of them are gay? Does that also imply that being straight is not natural? No, it doesn't. We simply sat they're sick. We don't tie it to their sexuality cause we are also straight.

The point here is that the premise of your logic does not support your conclusion. It's easy for us to call out a whole group just because of the actions of a few when we aren't members who the said group.

* When some does something in Kenya, people say "Kenyans and awkward news!" but we cry out when the western world stereotype Nigerians as criminals.

* When an a woman does something silly, we say "fear women!" or call her ashawo when she's dressed in a certain way, but we cry out when SARS officers profile us by our dressing cause not all guys on dreads are criminals.

* When an Hausa man misbehaves, we call out Northerners, but when Igbos are in the news cause of the crimes of Obi Invictus, they cry out.

* We demonise gay people cause there are some pedophiles amongst them, but will quickly forget about sexuality when the culprit is straight.

This herd mentality fuels discrimination cause it makes us not to be empathetic enough to put ourselves on other people's shoes.

You missed my point. Molestation of either young boys or girls is bad. If being gay is natural, why can't gay people wait until the boys are grown up. Why target them at a young age?


Celebrities / Re: Fashion Designer, Tom Ford Loses His Husband, Richard Buckley To Death At 72 by rman: 4:36pm On Sep 21, 2021

So straight men don't molest little girls??

Can you listen to yourself?

I am not talking about molestation of little girls but trying to punch hole into the claim of being gay as being natural.

And please next time, if you cannot respond without subtle insults, you are free to ignore the post.
Celebrities / Re: Fashion Designer, Tom Ford Loses His Husband, Richard Buckley To Death At 72 by rman: 2:33pm On Sep 21, 2021

You got it wrong from the first line, sir. These men didn't just decide thier orientation cause they have the right to, except you're telling me you were the one that chose to be straight at some point. Even in Nigeria where people don't have the "right" to decide thier orientation, we still have gay people. Regardless of how Africans or Asians try to suppress it, gay people will always be born everywhere. And they also wonder how you'd see a cute muscular guy and leave that for a woman.

My issue with being is gay is they deliberately target young boys, who are still at an age they can be manipulated.

If gay is natural, why are some of them targeting young boys? Because some of these boys will now be messed up for later life.

I may not have stats to back it up but there is an issue of molestation, at a very early age, not noticed by the parents of most gay people.

In some ways you are right.

But her offence is clear, she was caught in the act. She can't deny the fact that she killed the man.

These interviews are to help her, cause now she's claiming she did that to defend herself from been killed by her Sugar Zaddy.

She's claiming self defence, and ignorance of the situation of not going to the police to report the crime.

She's also been remorseful of the act. These interviews might have been arranged by her lawyers to seek public support.

Even the judge might have to reduce her sentence with these interviews.

She has changed her story in the interview granted. She met the man dead in the room after coming from running some errands. She panicked and took some of his valuables including his ATM card and left because she was afraid..STORY HAS CHNAGED
