This guy was CNN money maker and had the most watched show on CNN despite CNN falling ratings. I don't know if CNN would survive this because overall its ratings ain't doing well and the people are moving away from watching CNN due to its leftist propaganda and constant lies portrayed by the Cable News.

Travel / Air Peace Begins Flight Operations Into Anambra Airport on December 7 by Anambra1stSon(m): 4:22am
nigeria’s leading airline, Air Peace, has stated that it would commence scheduled flights operations into the Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport on Tuesday, December 7, 2021.

The decision to commence flight operations into the airport followed the recent approval of the airport by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority(NCAA)

This was disclosed to journalists in a press release issued today Saturday, by Air Peace’s Spokesperson, Stanley Olisa.

He stated that Anambra people can heave a sigh of relief as they can now fly directly from Lagos and Abuja into the Umueri located Airport, adding that the airline would kick-off with four flights per week.

According to him, “This is great news for the people of Anambra State as we are launching four flights weekly into the new airport on Tuesday. For a start, we shall be operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, and as operations gather momentum, we shall increase frequencies to daily flights”.

Olisa, who said that passengers can start booking on Air Peace’s website www.flyairpeace.com or its mobile app, stressed that the airline plans to connect Anambra to other cities not only Lagos and Abuja.

in his words, “By the end of January 2022, we will have commenced the following connections: Anambra-Kano-Anambra, Anambra-Ibadan-Anambra and Anambra-Port Harcourt-Anambra. Air Peace is unwaveringly determined to interconnect nigeria, providing connections which facilitate seamless economic exchanges and foster unity”.

He asserted that the consistent route expansion by the airline is a reflection of its “No-city-left-behind” initiative,which has seen the airline expand its footprints both in nigeria and beyond, while easing the transportation burden of Nigerians.

Air Peace currently services 19 domestic routes, 6 regional routes and 2 international destinations, and operates an increasing modern fleet of 32 aircraft, including 4 brand new Embraer 195-E2 jets and 2 Airbus 320s.

Politics / Re: COVID-19 Affected My Fight Against Corruption, Insecurity – Buhari by onuman: 11:59pm On Dec 04
How many cities in nigeria did Buhari’s government provide public treated water supply system in the last six years? Treated water supply system for the public is first measure against Covid-19 spread.

Corrupt practices in government exist in other countries but the leaders in other countries must first provide the public with the most basic public infrastructures.

This one is mouthing fight against corruption every now and then since 2015, as if the public shall consume fight against corruption in place of treated public water.

GeneralDae:

GDP is not the most important measure of an economy though, although it shows the output of goods and services in a nation. Therefore it makes sense that all populated countries have a GDP higher than they sometimes would have had. Also resources play a huge role. For instance, Angola and Equatorial Guinea have oil, but this is almost all of what the economies of these countries depend on. Angola have always had a higher GDP than Tanzania, but cities in Angola may be not so developed as cities in Tanzania except probably Luanda.

nigeria has population, together with good Telecom and Banking sectors and is the tenth largest oil producing nation in the world. She practices non mechanised farming to an extent but still makes amongst the largest numbers in some agricultural produce. Even with all her perceived insecurities, nigeria is amongst the top three nations with the most FDI's in Africa within the last 10 years ( the others are Egypt and South Africa). So while I agree with you that GDP should show in infrastructure, this isn't always the case like we see especially with Equatorial Guinea and many countries where Oil has been the dominant source of Government revenue for years.
Tanzania though is doing well and has the potential to overtake Kenya in GDP .

Travel / Nigeria Can Become Developed Like Britain Or Germany - Ighodaloh Oseyomon by Daveofafrica(m): 2:54pm On Dec 04
Real Estate Entrepreneur, Says nigeria can become Developed like Britain or Germany.

Real Estate Entrepreneur and founder of bamboo Real Estate Limited, Ighódálóh Oséyómón has come out to say its possible for nigeria to become developed like European countries.

He told this to Niger delta insider after coming back from a business trip to Morroco. Ighodaloh, last month joined other executives from the nigeria Young Professionals forum on a business and innovation retreat in Casablanca, Morocco.

They explored cities like Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakech, Agadir and his company, bamboo group and the bamboo Real Estate limited struck partnership deals with some Moroccan companies.

Ighodaloh Oseyomon said he was amazed of how developed and well organised the Morrocan society is, that their cities are well planned. According to him, it can be replicated in nigeria.

"Morroco is an African country but its so developed and organised like Any other European country. They have good roads, good health care system, good education system. Its very possible for this to be replicated in nigeria"

The Real estate entrepreneur further said that for nigeria to reach that level, they must have visionary leaders and people need to have societal development mindset. He said with those two things alone, nigeria can be become very developed.

"Our leaders don't have love for the society and people that's why they only think of how to steal money, people get into office just to enrich themselves, they don't have vision. Dubai took only 40 year to become very developed, this was possible because of they have a visionary leader."

You guys are the reason why Lagos and nigeria as a whole cannot move forward. The GDP of Lagos by far beats that of Nairobi, Accra, Lome, Kigali, Dakar and Monrovia. but go to those places and you would hate the politicians in Lagos. Lagos had a head start in terms of Infrastructure and positioning as centre of commerce due to it's status as a former federal capital territory not because of any resourcefulness. The skewed development distribution ensures that 60% of nigeria's commercial activities is in Lagos. So at this level Lagos has gone beyond comparison with other states. it is suppose to be with other cities in Africa. It is unfortunate that right now it is an insult to cities like Cairo, Johannesburg and Casablanca to be compared to Lagos.
You guys keep justifying mediocrity because of crumbs they give you.

BKayy:

That is if they leave it like that.
There is something called "working on your strong points". If Anambra Airport capitalise on their strong points and maintain the basics, she will edge out Lagos and Abuja.

The same can be said for the stadium. Had it been they made it only football stadium, they would have edged out all the stadiums in not just nigeria but the entire west Africa. It will become the first choice for football in West Africa because she will be the only stadium designed for just football in the entire West Africa.

Anyways, the did has been done. On the bright side the stadium is small and looks like it will be easily maintained, so it is up to the state Government not to allow such manageable piece to ruin in their care.
But there is still a window to make the football only stadium a reality.

These are simple things that you do to edge out competitors. Working on your strong points and maintaining the basics.

The terminal is ok . What matters is that it is a starting point. The state should now focus heavily on a holistic redesign of the transport infrastructure of the state.

1) 20-40 seater City buses with concessional operators should replace keke and shuttle in next 5 years with planned routes and schedules for Awka metropolitan and Onitsha. This will improve livability.

2) Central Bus stations with offices, conveniences and shops should be built for inter City and intra state bus companies to pick up and drop off passengers from.

3) Every city has to be designed with at least 5 wide avenues for traffic flow and connecting streets. The maze design of roads in Nigerian cities is for villages. Modern cities have grid networks to make transport and delivery of other city utilities like water, sewage, waste disposal easier. Awka should be planned by expanding and planning roads towards Awka North. The Old Town of Awka should be decongested by relocating the eke market, prisons, governors Lodge elsewhere. in Onitsha, Ochanja should be relocated.

FreeStuffsNG:
in Lagos, our votes count.

Those who elected HE Sanwo-Olu are not in the Experience.

Those at the experience are mostly members of Pastor Adefarasin's church and they are mostly people from the region and religion that supports PDP and hates APC and Islam.
Fortunately, they are in a minority in Lagos. Please compare those youths at the experience to those who recieved HE Sanwo-Olu two days ago in Lagos State University ( LASU) and see the contrast.

LASU is mostly made up of youths who are indigenes of Lagos State, they have a heritage and stake in Lagos and you should watch the video of how they showed the Governor massive love and told the Governor that they will stand by him and walk with him.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBULTZdVGLE
Those youths at the experience are behaving like that woman who told the biblical Solomon to use a sword to cut an innocent baby into half because in her evil conscience, she knows that the baby (Lagos) does not belong to her and wants the baby(Lagos) dead to spite the real owner of the baby(Lagos).

They are customer daada who lose against Sanwo-Olu's APC every 4 years. As recent as last year's December, at the height of the campaign of fake news by vicious IPOB terrorists that burnt down Lagos and Pasror Adefarasin's favoured PDP against APC here in Lagos , APC still won a Senatorial election in Lagos West by landslide.

To enlighten,because you seem like you are not from Lagos(for want of not outrightly disclosing where I know you come from based on your posts wink) , Lagos East is a senatorial zone/district in Lagos State, comprising of the entire geographical areas of: Epe Local Government Area. Ibeju/Lekki Local Government Area. Ikorodu Local Government Area. The Church itself is located in Lekki under Lagos East yet those there could not win an election for the senatorial candidate of the party they supported.

They will still lose again.

Below is the result of the December 4 ,2020 Senatorial election of Lagos East Senatorial election in that same Lekki Local Government Area :

Ibeju -Lekki LGA
Electoral Officer: Dr Khalid Olajide Adekoya ( Unilag)
AA : 16
AAC: 17
ADC: 42
ADP: 65
APC: 16336
APM: 12
LP: 07
NNPP: 05
NRM: 07
PDP: 937
SDP: 11
YPP: 109

Those youths at the experience account for most of those paltry 937 PDP votes and they lost again to APC with a very wide margin .

Final result:

APC Candidate Tokunbo Abiru won the Lagos State East Senatorial district bye-election wey hold on Satuday, 5th December.

The Independent Electoral Commission, INEC declare APC's Abiru the winner with 89,204 votes while his closest opponent PDP candidate Babatunde Gbadamosi got 11,257 votes.


in Lagos, if election is conducted today, APC will still win by a large margin as usual. We will defend Lagos. It's the legacy our forebears built and handed over to us
God bless Lagos State and nigeria.

All the enemies of nigeria and Nigerians will lose las las. They always lose and get put to shame. #DefendLagos
Please bring your investments to Lagos today. in Lagos, you, your family and investments are safe. Your investments are guaranteed of great returns. God bless you as you bring your investments to Lagos.

I really don't want to say you are dense, but guy you are so dense. So Yoruba guys that burnt businesses in Lagos are now IPOB and also the guy that seized the staff of the Oba of Lagos is now IPOB?

Celebrities / Giving Event Packaging A Classy Look In Abuja, One Of People You Should Know by dailybuzzng: 4:17pm On Dec 03
Amb Kingsley Amafibe: Giving Event Packaging A Classy Look in Abuja, One Of People You Should Know


The Abuja narratives in social life is rapidly taking a new turn courtesy of new sheriffs in town. Prior to recent times, the FCT was not known beyond being the nation's seat of power where politicians meet to plot their political survival and restrategise against the next political year. Added to this is the fact that it houses key government ministries, departments and agencies. One can therefore safely say the city is a civil service state where the calendar cycle runs Monday-Friday, unlike Lagos where the large quantum of commercial and social activities run all week.

Interestingly, the I-cannot-kill-myself philosophy of Lagos where social life runs at par with work life seems to have in a way crept into Abuja. Residents of the nation's capital unlike in the past do not need to travel to Eko to unwind after a week-long work. What they are looking for in Sokoto is now in their shokoto, as we say in our parlance. Then why not save the flight ticket and have a full blast here at your doorstep?

This again accounts to why some top class MCs, comedians and artistes are finding their survival in a city once considered a rocky ground for the entertainment industry. Credit must be given to those who are bringing Abuja to limelight with social life, thereby offering residents opportunity of easing off the accumulated work-induced stress while getting them ready for a more healthy and productive lifestyle through a sound and emotionally balanced psyche. Some of these event gurus started off as pageant beauty contest organisers years back but have enlarged their scope to package events that adorn the presence of top socialites, politically exposed persons, business moguls and entertainment icons.

These visionary event organisers have not only created a niche for themselves, they have equally gone ahead to give Lagos a run for its money. in a short while, they have brought fame, attention, accolades, satisfaction, recognition and glamour to the FCT, thereby reviving the social life of the Abuja residents once in limbo.

in no particular order, these five individuals and organisations based on our research have contributed immensely to thrilling the residents of FCT with memorable events. Also note that Venue of Event, Quality Of Personalities, Turn Out of Individuals, Event Packaging, Media Presence & Visibility, Human Relation and Profit/ Income generation form the criteria for our listing.


*Amb. Kingsley Amafibe*

The Chairman Peace Ambassador Agency, Amb. Amafibe is one of the backbones of events and entertainment in Abuja. He started off on a right and strong footing with the unveiling of his Miss Ambassador for Peace Pageant. It has over the years harvested several embodiments of beauty and brain from across the country that have left enviable footprints in their various endeavours. From the fountain of this dream sprang entertainers, models, authors and respected financial experts. Amafibe's vision brought to limelight these young ladies, largely from a not-too-rich background, dusted up their talents and made them discover themselves.

With the level of confidence he impacted in them, they have not only become useful to themselves but have become assets to their families and the entire society. The platform also linked some of these beauty queens to mouth watering contracts that changed their lives for good while others met their life partners here and are happily married.

A man whose word is his bond, he stands out as one of those pageant organisers who keeps to agreements with the contestants. He has remained consistent in redeeming pledges of cars as star prize to winners along with accompanying consolation prizes. Without mincing words, a good numbers of winners of Miss Ambassador for Peace Pageant since inception have smiled home with a beautiful cars.


The company, Peace Ambassador Agency later introduced Peace Achievers Award which was initially organised along with the Miss Ambassador for Peace Pageant. As time progressed, seeing the massive pomp and pageantry it attracted, both events were separated from each other and organised independently. The Peace Achievers Award in no distant time attracted the presence of politically exposed individuals including Governors, Senators, House of Representatives and State Houses of Assembly members, top government functionaries, notable businessmen and socialites who have at one time or the other been honoured with this prestigious award for their contributions to peace and unity of nigeria. The award was later rebranded as Peace International Achievers Award.


Also, the Northern nigeria Peace Awards which later joined the list of highly successful social events organised by Peace Ambassador Agency attracted prominent political leaders, traditional rulers, religious leaders, opinion leaders, businessmen and women, influencers, entertainers etc from the Northern region.


As a peace advocate, Amb. Kingsley Amafibe is not oblivious of the role youth empowerment plays in entrenching a lasting peace in the country. An engaged youth will not think of stoking the embers of crisis and disunity among his kinsmen. To this end, he went ahead to introduce the Big Dreams Reality TV show, through a subsidiary of Peace Ambassador Agency, Good Dreams Multi Media Concept.


With this platform, he discovered and harnessed plethora of talents among the youth population during their tasks in the camp. This again attracted likeminds, ranging from high profile celebrities, notable youth advocates and young political leaders who did not only visit the camp to identify with the youths while their task lasted but also supported the dream through cash and kind.


Unlike many others, Amb. Amafibe did not jettison his first passion, the media which indeed reasonably gave him a leverage in many other dreams he has been able to accomplish. The publisher of Alpha Plus Magazine, he has gone ahead to rebrand the magazine for optimum performance, having existed over the years as a monthly national publication. Notable individuals from all endeavours of life in entertainment, showbiz, business, politics, etc have all adorned the cover page of the prestigious newspaper that has become a household name in Abuja and surrounding cities.


Recently, he authored a book with the title "Rise Of African Fashion Designers And Lifestyle" which is currently selling on Amazon.


in recognition of his visible contributions in the industry, he was recently honoured as an honorary "Doctor of Management and Entrepreneurship from the Institute of Management and Leadership USA in Partnership with American Heritage University Southern California" at his event. This therefore qualifies him to attach the prefix "Dr" in front of his name.


in an effort to assemble all fun lovers in Abuja and environs to unwind after a hectic year, full of hustle and bustle, he introduced Abuja All White Pool Party under his Good Dreams Multi Media Concept. Irrespective of unmet and missed targets which sometimes characterise our year, there is every reason to celebrate, especially by being among those who have seen the end of the year in a society where people are felled for fun.


The Abuja All White Pool Party has over the years provided a platform for families to ease off their stress and relax in most serene and calm atmosphere. This has been hosted in very high profile centres across the FCT; from Sandrallia hotel to Commodore Suites, Kanary Wellness Centre and others. Abuja residents always walk home with fun memories at the end of each All White Pool Party, waiting with a bated breath for the next season which is billed to hold on 5th December 2021 at Commodore suite, Wuse 2.


Amb. Kingsley Amafibe stands out in the comity of event organisers because he takes cognizance of venue before delving into an event. Top class spots such as Transcorp Hilton, Sheraton Hotels and Towers, NAF Conference Centre etc are always his choice. It takes an organiser who understands his onion to consider hosting an event in these and other A-rated centres. Undeniably, these centres have not only attracted him fame but fortune.


in terms of quality of persons he has attracted to his events, he has brought in the high and might from various parts of the country and life endeavours. He is also known for pulling a massive individual turn out in all his events. From Miss Ambassador for Peace Pageant, to Peace International Achievers Award, Northern nigeria Peace Awards, Big Dreams Reality TV show and Abuja All White Pool Party, the turn outs have been very humongous. in some of his event, he has had a reason to make provision for an expanded hall, bring in additional seats for the comfort and relaxation of the teeming respected guests.


He is rated high as an event packager in Abuja. He stands out not only in giving every event a touch of class, he goes extra mile to ensure that lighting, sound, red carpet and whatever that event needs to have an international outlook is provided. These are not unconnected to why he is a sought-after to individuals, bodies and corporate organisations who want to have a spotless event in the nation's capital.


As a publisher and media entrepreneur, he treats with utmost seriousness anything that concerns the media in his events. He understands the essence of publicity and visibility and does not handle same with laxity. Before, during and after events, he ensures a high level of publicity and this has led to a mutually beneficial relationship between his organisation and media houses, both electronic, print and online. The streets of Abuja are greeted with billboards, posters and banners that announce to residents that something big is about to happen in their neighboruhood.


in human relations, he has carefully recruited well-bred, thoroughly trained ushers who relate with guests with a very high sense of dignity. He has ensured that guests do not only have something valuable on their tables during events, but go home with their heads high that they did not miss the event.


He has grown from strength to strength over the years in profit/income generation at the end of each outing. It is only gratifying to recoup an investment after putting in so much to host an event to the satisfaction of guests. To assemble individuals, thrill them with earth-shaking contents and then recoup your resources only encourages you to do more.


Little wonder he has continually reinvested his funds in remodeling his business empire through establishment of new offices, acquisition new operational equipment, including cars and recruitment of manpower for effective service delivery. At a recent disaster where his wife's shop was razed down in Gwarimpa area of the city during a fire outbreak, coupled with the demolition of his own office space in the Wuse 2 area by the authorities of FCDA, he emerged stronger within a twinkle of an eye to the chagrin of many.



Today, he is rated high as one of the event entrepreneurs who occupies one of the most beautiful, well packaged and smart offices in highbrow area of Abuja.

Politics / Dr Godwin Maduka's Philanthropy And Kind Gestures Towards Anambrarians Is A Gold by dailybuzzng: 3:48pm On Dec 03
Dr Godwin Maduka's Philanthropy And Kind Gestures Towards Anambrarians Is A Gold Standard, For Measuring Selfless Leadership Qualities!

From many years and months that well lead to the Anambra 2021 elections,to several days after these elections,Dr Godwin Maduka showed a character trait more interested in developing people around him,instead of the normal selfish designs,we know in Nigerian politics.

in our local political space,we are used to having politicians show up only eight to ten months before elections, brandishing food packs,bags of rice,sewing machines and envelopes with meagre sums of money to bait the electorate with.

They would do these instead,rather than fix roads,help businesses grow and provide proper social amenities;such as roads,drugs,schools,churches,and hospitals.

At the start of September,several paint traders lost goods and properties along Modebe Avenue worth hundreds of millions of naira. Dr Godwin Maduka came to these traders rescue like a contemporary day saint and/or super hero of sorts.

Dr Godwin Maduka gave out meaningful sums of cash to sick person's at hospitals and paid scholarships in full,long before these Anambra 2021 elections and afterwards.

The schools , churches ,roads, hospitals, housing units for the DOWNTRODDEN and scholarships given are still ongoing.

Besides all these golden efforts at ameliorating the lack of social amenities in our society,Dr Godwin Maduka is not looking to stop as he continues to give to those members of the Nigerian society who are in dire need of aide. He does these noble deeds like they are his duty,with a smile on his face and a hug to the needy as he shares his hard earned wealth with the unfortunate members of our society.

Sometimes I feel that people like Dr Godwin Maduka should be able to easily win elections in our polity,given the facts that he is extremely popular for his PHILANTHROPY and extra benevolence to the middle and lower income classes who constantly bear the brunt of these harsh economic times,in nigeria.

Furthermore,his PHILANTHROPY which runs back to the last 30 years, starting at Umuchukwu his home town and,running through other towns and cities, all over Anambra State.

Dr Maduka is the classical representation of a contemporary day king Midas. This is so because all he touches turns to gold. Dr Maduka has made the Anambra state elections more competitive by his open mindedness, philanthropic gestures and sense of human development. He has indeed raised the bar with his desire to improve on every faucet of society using his,hard earned wealth,without asking for a reward for his deeds.

This is the way a true leader behaves. He gives freely and without counting costs because,he knows that the grand architect of the universe,the Only One sees and rewards all activities.

Dr Godwin Maduka is the numero uno amongst public figures from this contemporary Anambra State's society today because,he has used personal funds so much to aide millions from his productive structures and deeply thoughtful actions.

Politics / Lagos Is Second Least Liveable City In The World For 2021 by Razzness(m): 3:27pm On Dec 03
Lagos Is Second Least Liveable City in The World For 2021

Lagos is the second least liveable city in the world for the year 2021. This is according to the most recent annual ranking put together by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).

The EIU survey ranked 140 cities based on stability, healthcare, culture & environment, education and infrastructure.

The top five most liveable cities on the EIU list are Auckland, New Zealand; Osaka, Japan; Adelaide, Australia; Wellington, New Zealand and Tokyo, Japan.


The top five least liveable cities on the EIU list are Damascus, Syria; Lagos, nigeria; Port Moresby, PNG; Dhaka, Bangladesh and Algiers, Algeria.

The Economist Intelligence Unit (The EIU) is the research and analysis division of The Economist Group, the sister company to The Economist newspaper.
Data for the EIU liveability survey was collected from February 22 to March 21 2021.

Some of the key findings include:

The overall global average liveability score has fallen by seven points, as compared with the average pre-pandemic score. The extent to which cities were sheltered by strong border closures, their ability to handle the health crisis and the pace at which they rolled out vaccination campaigns drove significant changes in the rankings.
Auckland, in New Zealand, is at the top of The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Liveability rankings, owing to the city’s ability to contain the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic faster and thus lift restrictions earlier, unlike others around the world.
Six of the top ten cities in the March 2021 survey are in New Zealand or Australia, where tight border controls have allowed residents to live relatively normal lives.
Here is the list of the top 10 most liveable cities for 2021:

Auckland, New Zealand
Osaka, Japan
Adelaide, Australia
Wellington, New Zealand
Tokyo, Japan
Perth, Australia
Zurich, Switzerland
Geneva, Switzerland
Melbourne, Australia
Brisbane, Australia

The 10 least liveable cities for 2021 are:

Damascus, Syria
Lagos, nigeria
Port Moresby, PNG
Dhaka, Bangladesh
Algiers, Algeria
Tripoli, Libya
Karachi, Pakistan
Harare, Zimbabwe
Douala, Cameroon
Caracas, Venezuela

Let me help you....

If SA has over 20,000 kms of railway,why you guys r too far behind with your the so called economy?

If SA has more than 12 good,developed cities,why you guys has got only one or two cities even with dust roads?

If SA has over 40,000MW capacity, why nigeria has so much low and Kenya has about 2,000 but your cooked GDP figures is a quarter of SA? Why can't u have a quarter of 40,000 MW?

Check SA local aviation sector,compare it with naija or Kenya. Have u seen the joke?

You can't have a quarter of SA GDP, while on ground you don't have a quarter of what SA has.
You can't have the bigger GDP than SA,but on ground, you struggle to even get a half or a third of what SA has!

Shitholes
Kenya's aviation sector is playing a catch-up game with SA.
Rail lines are not the yardstick for measuring GDP. But that being said, we have the best railway infrastructure in Africa - outside SA.

Yes, SA GDP is correct. At least sh*t is reflecting on the ground - just like the booming infrastructure in Kenya, with the highest GDP growth rate. cool

Another point is. .... If you want to talk to Nigerians, talk to them directly. Don't use Kenya as an escape route.

Some countries like to chase clout. They can't survive on their own so they chase Kenyans and sometimes Nigerians to feel relevant. I have encouraged those two dwarf economies to start their own thread to promote their agenda but it won't work without our input and they know it. Allow them here they can't survive without us. grin wink

Anytime I go out in Lagos, I see nothing but war

The sight of the yellow danfos disgusts me, sight of the police gives me h.b.p, the behavior of everyone in Ikorodu, Iyana Ipaja, oshodi, Ojota, Berger, Ojo Alaba e.t.c suggests there is war,

If you stay long enough in Lagos, Lagos will kill you one day. The air quality is low, hence why ppl develop a terrible disease like cancer in the future

-If you go out at night come back home without being robbed, na thanksgiving

-If you go out during the day and reckless okada or danfo didn't knock you down, na thanksgiving

-If you go to computer village and you are not pick pocketed, na thanksgiving

Lagos disgusts me, my heart beat fast anytime I enter Lagos

All the stuffs I mentioned above have happened to me. I hate Lagos, I hate nigeria, I hate you for this silly comment
Yet igbos are trooping to lagos in tens of thousands, why can't igbos just stay in your 'livable cities' and let lagos state be.

My brother, I just tire for dis kind thing. This kind of report keeps coming out every year since the past couple of years, labeling Lagos unlivable, this and that. Yet economic migrants keep flooding the state daily! If the state is so unlivable, then those that find it unlivable should leave it and move to the livable ones naw, abi? There are 35 other states in nigeria. Unless there's more to it.

Tell me how much a constable earn! Certainly more than teachers and teachers don't have barracks. If they are poorly paid, barracks are not the solution. They should fight for better pay, not barracks. Police should not be separated from the citizens they serve
