|Politics / Re: Will Black Race Be Able To Rise To Prominence? by SIRTee15: 12:50pm|
U have shallow knowledge of your history and it explains the lack of self confidence u displaying.
One guy up there even said white man brought clothes to Africans. FYI, Africans taught white people how to bath with soap.
The guy is right if he wants to identify as Yoruba man. Enough of all this painting Africa with one brush.

I don't understand how someone will just decide to financially empower his enemy and still continue to do so even in the face of imminent danger.
China was dirt poor until western nations decided to move their factories and manufacturing capabilities to China. This move turned China into a humongous economic power within 20yrs with financial resources to invest in advanced military weapons n sophisticated defence capabilities.
What did western countries get in return from the deal? Absolutely nothing of except for more wealth to the already rich.
It's obvious greed and stupidity lies not only with African leaders.
|Career / Re: Should I Take CFA Exams And Is It Worth It? by SIRTee15: 1:35pm On Oct 16|
Is that not the exam for investment bankers?
The exam na die, I'm not even sure they have a centre in nigeria. It's also very expensive.
It's worth it provided u have the time and strength. It takes an average 4 yrs to complete the 3 level of exams.
Pls chop well b4 u commence the program. All the best.

Sebi u claim u live in a developed country. Try such nonsense with your daughter or anybody's child in the mosque u attend, and see if u won't spend the rest of your life in jail.

This guy is very funny. Bringing up irrelevant issues to justify abuse.
I condemn any flogging going on in churches in the name of deliverance. I expected u to do likewise as regards the video. Thats what education does to the mind.

Church discipline is within what the law permits. Beating up people due to witchcraft is assault. Such religious leader will get arrested and prosecuted. CAN won't come to your rescue. Ask reverend king who's waiting for the hangman's noose.
Even, bishop oyedepo had a taste of his own high handedness when he was dragged to court for slapping a girl.
U asking how it concerns me? That school is a breeding ground for hardened and criminal minded islamic fanatics. What goes on there is indoctrination of terror.
When they join boko haram, become bandits, killer herdsmen or full blown terrorists; then they become everyone's concern.
Besides such acts as in the video is a recipe for domestic violence and abuse.
The only lesson I can learn from this video is that it's ok for husband to beat his wife, the wife must accept the punishment and suffer in silence.
Arabic schools ( ile keu) in nigeria have always been known as a den of terror ever since I was a child. Every Muslim child fears the alfas in charge, they always have gory tales to tell.
I can't really blame the malams because they don't know any better. They are not educated and they simply perform the role as was handed down them.
But what I don't understand is why the elite n educated among u has failed to do anything about these schools but continue to cover their atrocities. It says a lot about the religion itself.
Oga your daughter is not a saint. No child is a saint. They make mistake and should be corrected. It's part of growing up.
Yes children must be disciplined but there should be a clear dermacation from abuse.
What did she do? Drank alcohol...and the punishment is violation of her dignity.
It's funny how u guys boast u live abroad, but haven't learn anything from your new environment.
Tmrw now, they will invite u to take up a top govt role in naija hoping to see changes only for u to make a make a mess of yourself. When u guys don't learn.
|Education / Re: Brutal Flogging Of Students: Kwara Govt Opens Probe, Suspends Madrasa Leader by SIRTee15: 12:33am On Oct 11|
Jesus was restoring order, discouraging chaos and enforcing discipline in the house of God. Nobody condemned what he was doing incl religious leaders because they knew it was the right thing.
They only questioned his authority which was inconsequential.
And we still do it. Order is enforced in churches via ushers and security guards.
The case of sowore's boys who brought political protest to Dunamis church in Abuja is still fresh. They were rounded by church security n handed over to DSS. The church is not a place for political stunt.
If u attend church service in an inebriate state or u start constituting public nuisance within church premises, u will be kicked out. Members are expected to be sober and orderly in church.
Security officers patrol church premises during service or crusades to enforce discipline or prevent people who might want to engage in immoral behaviour. If u are CAUGHT, u will be detained and possibly disciplined. The church is not a venue for illegal activity.
So we still follow our Lord's commandment as stated in the verse u quoted within the ambience of the law of the land.
Now to that video...what's going on there isn't discipline but a barbaric act carried out by primitive and illiterate teachers of law and their students.
How can 4 men descend on a defenceless lady in such manner. That's extreme abuse n violation of her right , body and dignity.
And it's unfortunate that the educated ones among u support such behaviour all in the excuse that's it's an internal affair. I'm sure u will NEVER allow your daughter be treated in such manner.
The above is the reason why most peple have contempt and disregard for Islam. The silence of the moderate majority in the face of violent behaviour by the extremist minority is worrisome.
|Politics / Re: Does Peter Obi Support Prove Yorubas Are Naive? by SIRTee15: 11:59am On Oct 08|
can we then restructure this country?
I have no business with Peter Obi looting the commonwealth of the Anambra. If the ibos are happy with him, its their headache not mine and shouldn't be yours either.
But I have a big problem with Tinubu or any other Yoruba politicians looting southwest states into poverty. That's my commonwealth and the Yorubas are my people. Their prosperity is my joy.
The issue of overlooking the corruption of your politicians is what is holding this country back. The obsession with controlling the centre has made lots of reasonable southern Nigerians become stupid and this cuts across all ethnic groups. We now make ridiculous attempt at redefining corruption on social media, making excuses for politicians that should be languishing in jail.
But can u blame them? The David Hudeyin report showed the north have taken the south for a fool far too long than what is permissible.
The answer to this nonsense is to restructure the country, and every region should decide how they want to hold their politician accountable.

|Foreign Affairs / Re: Chinese Air Force Sends Another 56 Warplanes Toward Taiwan by SIRTee15: 12:21am On Oct 06|
I cant remember telling u that my moral compass is influenced by western propangada or policy. I stand on the side of justice, equity and fairness as well as common sense.
How is france and uk superpowers? uk was smart to know when to relinquish the title. France that cant even get a submarine deal done much less project power beyond its territory. Their influence on francophone countries is simply due to the stupidity of african leaders.
I ignored the catalonia question because its obvious u just playing to the gallery over the issue. anyway I'll reply u and hope u learn from it.
I support the right of catalonia to self determination if they feel their interest is not protected under the spanish protectorate. What I do not support is some politicians pushing their selfish agenda under the guise of secession. The govt is a representative of the people and should do the bidding of the people.
The 2017 catalonia referendum was very divisive among the catalonians. The opposition parties in catalonia refuse to partake and told their members not to vote. Puigdemont even sacked his own ministers who advised against the move and his police chief resigned over same issue. He couldnt even get 2/3rd of his own parliament to approve it, making it unconstitutional. It was a foolhardy move and the disastrous outcome was predictable.
Same thing Nicolas sturgeon is pushing in scotland when scottish have made it clear they do not want another referendum.
I really dont understand your point about falkland. When the vote was conducted, the inhabitants said they dont want to be with argentina. I dont care their race or when they relocated. Its about the people not the land. If we start arguing on land, then we are all migrants and tenants on our present habitation. other people lived their b4 us.
Your lame point about land is what britain is using to hold on to chagos archipelago when it rightfully belongs to mauritius. Even the UN assembly and world court has pronounced the island belongs to mauritius. But Britain kept insisting there were no people on the islands when they colonised it and former inhabitants were workers brought as migrants to work on the plantation. Ironically, falkland was used against them in court on why their argument wasnt tenable.
I really dont see why u brought amercian civil war into the picture. First, this is 2021 not 1857. A lot of progress have been made on rights, justice and fairness.
Second, the confederacy never asked 25% of its own citizens whether they wanted to secede or stay with the union and under what terms&condition. I guess they never wanted to give up their source of cheap labour. So why should america offer them such benevolence?
And this brings me back to nigeria which u carefully ignored. The West wants a Nigeria that is united but useless. U will never see anything wrong in that despite your anti-west rhetorics since their oneness policy on nigeria serves your interest. This is despite 99% of tribes that make up Nigeria are tired of the present structure and wants an alternative.
Based on the above, I can conclude u are the one who is influenced by western hypocrisy since u depend on them to keep Nigeria one.

All u doing is cherry picking. going around in circles looking for what suits your agenda. I dont have time for that.
people's will remain sacrosant. You dont force your will against their wish. simple.
anything otherwise is a room for anarchy.
superpowers don't learn until its too late. formerly ussr, presently usa and now china is treading same path. Nigeria is already gone.

UK has made it clear northern Ireland can join Ireland if they choose to. All they need is a referendum. But northern Ireland wants to be part of uk.
Pls go and read a bit about the hx of northern Ireland. They are Anglicans and do not want to be fully incoporated with the Catholic Ireland.
Scotland already had a referendum. If they want another one, they can go ahead. But they need to make up their mind. Nobody wants neverendum, lest they become a joke like Quebec. Besides, incessant calls for referendum frustrate governance and impede future planning.
Nigeria was created by the White man, no inhabitant of nigeria agreed to be a nigerian.
U condemn the White man when it's convenient for u but uphold it's failed institution when it's beneficial. That's hypocrisy and lack of innate intelligence.
IPOB or any other group in nigeria has every right to demand for referendum if their interest is no longer protected in nigeria. Keeping people against their will is a call for anarchy and violent insurgency. Nigeria is almost on that road.
America has already learnt the stupidity of imposing unpopular will upon a people...Iraq and Afghanistan.
It's China's turn to learn.

U are deceptive in nature by coming here and spreading half truth.
Both citizens of falkland and Gilbratar wants to be with uk...simple. If they should decide they want closer ties with argentina and spain respectively, then uk will have to respect that decision.
The will of the people is what count.
Taiwanese dont want to be part of china, any contrary argument is inconsequential, and its just an infringement on freedom of association.

|Family / Re: "Virginity Doesn't Guarantee A Successful Marriage" Is A Statement Of Stupidity by SIRTee15: 4:45pm On Oct 03|
Did u read the comments on that topic at all? It seriously weakened your argument.
The only people who carry virginity for head in the thread are indians.
And we know india is the rape capital of the world.
|Family / Re: "Virginity Doesn't Guarantee A Successful Marriage" Is A Statement Of Stupidity by SIRTee15: 3:45pm On Oct 03|
Well, I really don't know what it takes live a chaste life in nigeria. Maybe religion and discipline is a big influence.
I live abroad, and things are different here. U don't need to be religious to live morally or upright. Decision to be a virgin is a personal choice to both genders. Most times, it has nothing to do with marriage.
Also factors that influence a life partner is different even among nigerian migrants. For men, marriage can be a one chance bus, u don't want to get it wrong. So factors u looking for in a partner may be unlike if u are in naija.
|Family / Re: "Virginity Doesn't Guarantee A Successful Marriage" Is A Statement Of Stupidity by SIRTee15: 1:38pm On Oct 03|
As u can see, the priority is good character and not virginity.
There's more to marriage than virginity. Marriage is hard work from both couples.
I'm not really sure how virginity helps sustain and keeps the marriage going, but if it helps in anyway...then good.
But I'm sure good character, sacrifice, understanding, healthy compromise, excellent management skills, emotional intelligence are established keys that holds the foundation of a long lasting marriage.

|Health / Re: Six Nigerian Nurses Arrive At UK Hospital (Picture) by SIRTee15: 6:40pm On Sep 28|
I agree Europe needs to review it's manufacturing policy esp with china. Industrialisation develops a nation, not all these tourism or financial services.
Deindustrialisation in the name of stronger currency, cheap products or powerful financial institution is foolishness.
Travel to the northern part of England, you will notice high level of socioeconomic deprivation in cities that once depended on manufacturing for their sustainance.
Europe has to learn to be competitive in production or else they will end up like africa or south America.

Do u know how many men she meets in the spa on daily basis. Esp in Abuja where there are plenty men with money to throw around.
Obviously u know nothing of the street game in Abuja when it comes to women.
I don't subscribe to redpill, but I'll advise u to check out ubunja miseducation on nairaland.
For future reference- be wary of 'jumping in love' when you see 'beautiful women' who work as waitress, ushers or who work in spa, hotels etc. They meet different kind of men everyday.

I work in the system, I know how it works. There's agency, NHSP. Nurses can earn an avr 30 pounds/hour working for bank. besides they can choose to leave for us or canada after gaining confidence and skills.
dont come here spreading ignorance.
If u live in London and dont know any Nigerian architect or lawyer progressing in their careers, then we can conclude u have a deal with poverty. pls, dont infect others.
I live in sheffield and my circle of nigerian friends include doctors, lecturers, IT experts, nurses, project managers.
even the family who work as a carer and security guard has a hotel and 2 houses in nigeria.
u waste your resources living beyond your means in uk and u turn around to blame the system.
UK owe u nothing, if it didnt work for u, just go back home and see how easy it is to work legit and build house in lekki.
but dont come here and discourage nurses whose chance of a brighter life is better outside of nigeria.

At what rate. u think e-wallet will give u aboki rate for your dollar.
no freelancer will collect dollar from overseas and change it for cbn rate on any nonsense e wallet
and if u think it will be easy to access official rate on e-wallet when purchasing the dollar, u must be joking.
There's no benefit, simple. Even china that started it has to forcefully downgrade Alipay and wechat payment system just to make the yuan e-wallet viable.

|Politics / Re: Why Is The South West Afraid Of Northern Candidate From PDP In 2023 by SIRTee15: 8:25pm On Sep 24|
I'm Yoruba but I want a southerner from either SE/SS to get the presidency in 2023. I don't support a Yoruba presidency.
Present Yoruba generation are too pro nigerian for my liking. Na them carry nigerian unity for head pass.
Besides, I don't trust any Yoruba politician to initiate the so much desired restructuring we desperately need in this country.
They are too comfortable with the present structure and only hope to be in charge..taking the larger portion of the cake.
South south politicians have learnt their lessons with Jonathan. They won't wait for any 2nd term to strike.
Though some ibo politicians no get sense, but the undying agitation for biafra in that region will be too hard for any ibo president to ignore. Something has to give..at least restructuring.
