Politics / Re: PMB Certificate Controversy: Shocking WAEC HQ Letter Shared By Reno Goes Viral by SBG04: 6:31pm On Nov 03, 2018

Who is more credible, Rino or premium times?

Besides, no one can request for confirmation, attestation, transcript or certificate for another person. WAEC cannot give such a reply to a third party.

Cambridge themselves refused to oblige to such request by any third party saying only a candidate can request for any confirmation of results. As such WAEC cannot give such a reply to a third other than telling the third party it cannot provide any info as to the results of any candidate. The candidate is the only one thatn can do so.

Its just obvious, PDP is a propaganda machine and have not changed their ways.
I have to agree with this because its just ridiculous to think that all Nigerians are dumb at the same time. How on earth can you write a letter to WAEC requesting for JAMES OLA's results while the person's name is actually JIM OLA, and then start jubilating when WAEC tells you they don't have JAMES OLA'S record? Completely ridiculous!!! When did MUHAMMADU BUHARI become MOHMMED BUHARI? What kind of deliberate mass deception is this?

So really uptil now, nobody on this thread has been able to spot the difference between MUHAHAMADU BUHARI and MOHAMED BUHARI? So Reno omokri and his criminal NSA billion looting gang wrote a letter to WAEC requesting for information on a mystical MOHAMED Buhari, knowing fully well the spelling of our Presidents name and knowing fully well that MOHAMED Buhari from Provential school Katsina doesn't exist!!! And everyone here on Nairaland has bought it?? Nobody has spotted the fraud from Reno and his people? Except there is a conspiracy of ignorance here on NL, ita safe to say that NL has become the home to unsmart people.

This is a really useless thead! So from pages 1-5 of this thread, nobody could recognise that the so called 'Reno letter' had Mohamed Buhari on it and not Muhammadu Buhari our President? Mohamed Buhari from Katsina does not exist! That's why WAEC has no record of him!!!! The one we know is MUHAMMADU BUHARI!!! Let Reno and his gang of thieves and saddists continue deceiving the gullible. Are Nigerians actually this closed eyed? Obviously there is no Mohamed Buhari that graduated from provential secondary school Katsina!!!
What on earth is this country turning to?

Politics / Re: "Probe Oshiomhole" - Osadolor Ochei Tells Court To Compel EFCC To Probe Ex Gov. by SBG04: 11:59am On Jun 15, 2018
This is just ridiculous!!!
The judge that gave that order is setting a bad precedent!
So any riffraff can approach the court to compel the EFCC to probe someone based on a flashy house? or a nice car? With no evidence that the person is actually corrupt?
Normally if you have evidence that someone is involved in corruption, you write a petition to the EFCC detailing your evidence and the EFCC investigates. But to ask a court compel the EFCC to just probe someone because the person has a fine house, it amounts to overstretching the resources of the EFCC. Instead of that man to provide evidence that Oshiomole stole money, he is just making noise. This is a very bad precedent and will subject everyone to EFCC scrutiny. If we by mistake we have a dictator as president, he can make use of the precedent that this judge has just set, to go after anyone he dislikes with the EFCC.

Politics / Re: "Saraki Treatment Awaits Dogara" - Obasanjo by SBG04: 3:46am On Jun 09, 2018
I'm very saddened by the turn of events in Nigeria today. We all hoped and prayed for a messiah that would correct the ills in our society and justice for all, irrespective of who was involved. We voted Buhari in to do exactly what he's doing today. Now that we have it, we're still complaining. If you want to understand what the children of Isreal did to Moses in the desert after their release from captivity in Egypt, then study what's going on in Nigeria today! If you want to understand how the Jews treated the messiah they had always prayed for (Jesus), then study what's going on in Nigeria today.
We have had people who have consistently looted our commonwealth since 1960. We have had families that have stolen and lived off the Federal government. Generations of Nigerians that have turned Nigeria into their ATM and schooled their kids abroad for generations. These people have had the money pipe turned off. They are angry!!!
Atiku and INTELS had been ripping Nigeria off for years! Nobody was bold enough to do anything about it. The NPA MD came in and did something about it. Buhari did not dare to intervene like he promised us. Everyone screamed and shouted political persecution. Buhari did not care. The law had to take its course.
Saraki and his family have been stealing from Nigerians and killing for decades. Nobody did anything about it. Ibrahim Larmode, the former EFCC chair invited Saraki and his wife to the EFCC, Saraki quickly arranged for a criminal lawyer to indict the former EFCC boss for not accounting for EFCC recoveries. Larmode was sacked because Buharis hands were tied. The current EFCC chair faced a similar fate. The DG of the DSS was coaxed into writing a memo to the Senate indicting Magu on flimsy charges after Magus EFCC charged Saraki before the CCT. Buhari refused to sack Magu this time because he knew he had been deceived with the Larmode incident.
The same Saraki got himself involved with robbers. Selected a team of Senators to beg the President on his behalf. The President refused to intervene. Saraki, knowing fully well that he had a case to answer, got his fellow criminals in the house to pass a vote of no confidence on the IGP, same way he got rid of Larmode and tried to get rid of Magu.
Nigerians are like the stupid children watching on the sidelines, not understanding what is going on while the real enemies of democracy are raping us silly. We have a messiah and we have no idea. It's until we lose him that we'll realise what we have.


Politics / Re: Senate, Reps In Closed Door Meeting Over Impeachment Plot by SBG04: 3:41pm On Jun 05, 2018

You don't understand what is happening. Buhari is not the ones behind these things, he doesn't have the strength and he's not that intelligent. Hear the nonsense Buhari says. Does he sound like someone normal?

Them Abba Kyari, Daura, Tunde (his PA), and others in the mafia are beyond these. When needed, they conscript others into the plot.

The plan is to reduce Saraki to nothing before the next elections so that even if he decamps, he'll be politically worthless and no threat to Buhari.

Saraki is no Maradona anywhere since he and Kwara Governor were stoned in Ilorin 2 years ago. His Senator colleagues are willing to impeach him to have peace. He's just another yeoman in the Senate.
I pray Nigerians will realise who their real enemies are before its too late! So Saraki is now everyones hero?
Oga please that lexus jeep that was found in the Kwara state government house, was it Abba Kyari that planted it there? The Kwara state government in the press release they put out yesterday, did they deny that the jeep was found in the premises of the government house? Instead they said they actually gave money and cars to those boys and didn't know what they used the money for! How then did Abba Kyari enter the argument?
I pray God will give you the wisdom and sense to understand those that are against Nigeria and those that are for Nigeria. The EFCC has arrested Senators Peter Nwabaoshi, Jonah Jang and is about inviting Stella Oduah and Ekwerenmadu. Many more are going to be invited. These people that we all thought were untouchable before! They thought they could take our money and go to the senate and pretend nothing happened. That era has gone! And instead of Nigerians to be thankful to the FG for helping us do away with that era, we are praising the very people that have oppressed and stolen from us for so long!

I never thought i'd live to see the day when people would hold Saraki to a higher moral standard than Buhari. Nigerians are indeed a mad people.

He purchased a vehicle for the gang leader of the robbers through the chief of staff to the governor. That vehicle was used in a robbery and was impounded in Kwara government house. isn't it wise to invite Saraki to explain how a vehicle he purchased for that thug ended up being used in a robbery??

A car was seized in the Kwara State government house. That car was used in a robbery. That car was purchased by Saraki for the gang leader of the robbery. Please is it out of place for the police to ask Saraki to explain his relationship to a robbery, especially as the robber mentioned his name?? What is wrong with Nigerians. Why do we always complain about the system yet we harass those that are trying to make te system work? I tire for this country honestly! These Saraki foot soldiers don't know Saraki has a big file in the major western capitals of the world. He is known in the Panama leaks fraud, the Societe General bank fraud, owning houses in London with money from "sugar" and "farming" and now sponsoring robbers that killed 33 people. Nigerians Please let's allow the system to work for once!!!! Please! Stop all this persecution nonsense. Saraki, in his press statement yesterday, didn't even deny knowing those robbers. He just said he had nothing to do with the robbery. The Kwara State government too didn't deny sponsoring those robbers, they just said they gave them money but didn't know what they used te money for. What then is the problem of these people shouting persecution? Even when the accused haven't denied their involvement!

This is dirty politics nigerians play. I don't know saraki very well and I'm not his supporter but even a novice will know that this is political motivated . It's high time nigerians go to the street and protest so that all this nonsense will stop. This government should know that nigerians are suffering therefore should do something as a matter of urgency to remedy the situation . How is it that anyone who is against Buhari will turn a bad person overnight ? And nigerians will be jumping up now when they such propaganda . Shame !
Bros are you telling me that the Police should have shut their mouths and done nothing because Saraki is Senate President? Even the governor of Kwara hasn't denied that he bought those cars for those robbers. He hasn't denied that the car that was used to kill 33 people was impounded at the Kwara government house. So what exactly is your problem sir? Where is the politics here? You people should be careful with the way you analyse issues. It's very dangerous to come out and say rubbish when you haven't seen the facts of the case. Please endeavour to read the press release the police released yesterday concerning the issue. The press statement Saraki released yesterday didn't contain any rebuttal or denial that he knew those robbers. He just said he wasn't responsible for the offa robbery. Please read and post carefully and with caution.

Yes, there's political issue between Saraki and Buhari.

And yes, Saraki has "good boys" he's providing money and fire arms for political purposes.

Now, because Saraki has issue with Buhari should we now dismiss Saraki's culpability in providing dangerous weapons to dangerous peoples ?

Absolutely no!

He who price must pay... regardless the method!
The funny thing is Buhari has absolutely no issue with Buhari. Even the Saraki himself has been restricting his nonsense witchunting theories to the IGP and the invitation he declined. Saraki has never accused Buhari of witchunting because he knows Buhari has nothing against him. It's these illiterates and ignorant ones that keep slandering Buhari for no reason. Someone bought a car that a criminal used in robbing and killing 33 people, Abeg if this happened in the US, the first thing they would do would be to track ownership of the vehicle used in the robbery, which is exactly what the police has done!!! What then is the problem with these senseless Nigerians screaming Buhari and persecution. The person in focus sef hasn't accused Buhari of anything, why are you accusing him Nigerians?

There is so much ignorance and illiteracy in Nigeria. A group of robbers invaded Kwara State last month and killed 33 people! There was outcry everywhere. They even accused Buhari of incompetence in terms of security. The police tracked down the members of the gang and arrested them. The leader of the gang used a Lexus jeep in the robbery. The vehicle was impounded in the Kwara State government house!!!! The licence number of the vehicle had been changed while the owner of the vehicle was in police detention!!!!! Do Nigerians read at all?
The police provided full details of the crime to all Nigerians. The Lexus jeep was purchased for the gang leader by the Kwara State governor chief of staff!!!!! The PA to the governor asked his brother to smuggle some of the weapons in their custody to his farm!!!
All this evidence and people are still screaming witchunt!!!! We have been screaming for a messiah that would clean up Nigeria from corrupt politicians and their thieving ways. That would uphold the rule of law irrespective of whoever is involved. We have Buhari doing exactly this and we're still complaining.

Those thugs are were not sent by Saraki to rob those banks. Heck we don't even know. But what we know is that the leader of the gang is a Saraki boy. They traced payments from the chief of staff of the governor of Kwara to the guy. One of the vehicles used in the robbery, a Lexus jeep was impounded in the Kwara State ministry of environment. The vehicle was smuggled there because the owner knew the police was looking for it. The chief of staff to the governor ordered them to put it there after he was arrested.The story is really dirty.

Dear SBG04, I hope you know that the late passage of the 2018 budget had a negative effect on the market. Now, what caused the late passage; disagreement between the executive and the senate.

With foreign investors knowing that election in Nigeria is just 9 months away and the budget has not been signed yet, won't they panic, knowing full well that six or five months to elections in Nigeria are used for preparations by politicians?

This and others are what investors weigh to readjust their portfolio compositions. Nobody wants to be caught unawares.

And to end this, when dog bites man, it is no NEWS, but when man bites dog, it is.

It was therefore not surprising that the DPO went with Saraki's distorted facts and alleged that it was Sarakis enemies in the Senate like Ndume and Omo agege that arranged the break in by those thugs. Simply put, the DPO was transferred because he attempted to distort facts and rope in Sarakis enemies in the mace theft.

Thanks for the APC campaign reply.
Why are companies closing down esp start-up's?
CAMPLUS, KONGA, OLX, SHOWROOM.NG etc all complained about the high cost of doing business in Nigeria
These are the future of companies in Nigeria just as online media would make newspapers obsolete, and should be given priority.
We can't all 'go into farming' like the president suggested.
The problem of taxation in Nigeria is a lack of institution like everything else infact, of course people should pay tax but it should reflect the fact that 112M people live in poverty and taxing them won't lift them out of poverty, creating a free market would.

Oga OLX closed down operations across Africa except South Africa. Naspers SA decided to reduce their Africa portfolio and move East towards Asia. Google it please. Konga's operational costs were ballooning more than revenues. Shagaya had to sell to save his pocket from losses.
I absolutely hate it when people sit down and say Government everything!It disgusts me! Exactly what part of FG policy killed Konga? Please specify?

1 year tax break for new biz (esp Tech start-up's since they are the future) for example not the ridiculously high 'land bill' introduced by Lagos and others or the N3000 by Rochas, increasing rates and govt squeezing people isn't going to give us real growth, in fact I expect growth to stall soon,
This is a government that doesn't know how to grow an economy and it's obvious, imagine 1billion$ going into solar power generation in the North, creating nothing less that 200,000 jobs and adding to the grid and that's in the North alone, but the gov't is searching for oil there.
Big businesses in Nigeria already pay tax, small business (Market women) pay LGA/State taxes, which is remitted or not to the FG, I know I do,

The FG actually has no business with state level taxes. If you have issues with how the Lagos state government is taxing you, that's another topic entirely. The funny thing is there are actually large scale solar power projects ongoing in the North right now. I know about Kano and Jigawa. You can Google the rest. I understand where you're coming from though. If the government is going to increase taxes, then we must see commensurate investments in infrastructure. I can vouch for the FG in this regard. I know all the borrowing and taxing at the FG level has gone into revamping legacy projects like the second Niger bridge, Ikorudu - Sagamu, amongs others. I know the proceeds of the Sukuk bond (borrowed funds) is being used to kick start a major highway In the East. I also know that the foreign component of the borrowing is being used to kick start the Lagos - Ibadan rail project. What the states are doing with their own taxes is left for you to find out. If its not commensurate with what they're collecting from you, then its your responsibility (Not the FG's responsibility) to demand accountability.
If your state governor is using internally generated revenue (mostly tax revenue) to host super eagles vs Athletico Madrid in Uyo, or buy bags of rice to feed people in Ado-ekiti, its your responsibility to demand better.

Someone should correct me if I'm wrong, as at 2008/2009, Nigeria was virtually free of debts, and our debts rose from nothing to 12 trillion by ending 2015. And then between ending 2015 and 2017, a further 9 trillion was added.

From my vague understanding of economics, countries as a matter of urgency need to borrow to spend their way out of recession. As at late 2014/early 2015 when oil still sold for up to $70, warning shots were already being sent out by the Finance ministry that doomsday was nigh and the government's borrowing was ramped up at that time. As at end 2015/early 2016, oil price dropped to $28 and oil production dropped by over 60%; in total, Nigeria's revenue dropped by up to 70-80% in that period and throughout 2016, and there's was virtually nothing in savings to counter the revenue shortfall. Workers had to be paid, hospitals and several other services needed to be run etc and all these needed money which was non-existent.

In my opinion, I think its quite clear why Nigeria had to borrow N9trillion between 2015 and 2017; what I do not understand and can't explain however is why Nigeria had to borrow N12trillion between 2009 and 2015, a period when the country enjoyed the largest unprecedented oil income.

Ordinarily, with the nation's income now back up, and with the aggressive tax drive, I imagine the rate of borrowing will drop, and the little projects here and there which those monies were spent on over the years would start becoming visible (hopefully).
Excellent observations Sir. Your arguments are spot on! Well done!
