|Politics / Re: UK To Seize $39 Million From Bhadresh Gohil For Helping Ibori Move Funds by sulaak(m): 7:31pm|
Southern political class are corrupt and useless but.....
You can't say Northerner are moving Nigeria forward, the days in which Northern Nigeria was the breadbasket of West Africa is long gone. As of today more rice grown in the South than the North (mini the middle-belt), so what does the North contribute?
|Politics / Re: FG Approves $1.9 Billion Kano-Dutse-Katsina-Jibia-Maradi Rail Line by sulaak(m): 1:54pm On Sep 24|
Then stop complaining that there are no rail infrastructures in East or South-South.
GEJ spent $2-4 billion building the Abuja to Kaduna rail network and the Abuja light rail project. He could have include at least one project in the SS or SE but he didn't.
Buhari is not waiting for an Igbo or Yoruba president to complete the Lagos to Niger Republic railway, he will start and complete the project using debt tied to Niger-Delta oil
|Politics / Re: FG Approves $1.9 Billion Kano-Dutse-Katsina-Jibia-Maradi Rail Line by sulaak(m): 11:00am On Sep 24|
It is called prioritisation. We need infrastructure that will improve the logistics from the North to the South.
Niger republic and Chad are both important countries to Nigeria, the poverty in both countries is a burden to Nigeria security and future. A railway line that links the port in PH to Chad and Lagos to Niger Republic will improve trade and development across Nigeria.
|Politics / Re: FG Approves $1.9 Billion Kano-Dutse-Katsina-Jibia-Maradi Rail Line by sulaak(m): 6:53am On Sep 24|
GEJ had 6 years and did nothing in the SE\SS.
Buhari as much as I dislike him, is building rail infrastructures that will open the South East and improve the lives of that region. Rail and Road infrastructures is more important than electricity.

At these difficult times, the Lagos-Calabar coastal railway is not require, there are good roads network and ports that connect Lagos to Calabar by road and sea. The emphasis should be the Lagos - Kano - Niger Republic Rail network and Port-Harcourt-Enugu -Maidugari Rail.
|Politics / Re: Akeredolu Commissions Chocolate Factory In Idanre (Photos) by sulaak(m): 5:59am On Sep 23|
Akeredolu is a fraud, Ondo schools are dilapidated, the roads are a mess. His bitumen programme is non existence and he has jump on the Amotekun bandwagon that was initiated by Makinde.

Oil price under OBJ
Nominal Price Inflation Adjusted Price
1999 $16.56 $25.58
2000 $27.39 $41.02
2001 $23.00 $33.52
2002 $22.81 $32.69
2003 $27.69 $38.84
2004 $37.66 $51.39
2005 $50.04 $66.04
2006 $58.30 $74.59
2007 $64.20 $79.73
When Obasanjo took office in May 1999, Nigeria’s foreign reserves were just under $5bn. By the time he left in May 2007, it was $43bn. Debt was at its all time low
Nigeria reached a deal last October with the Paris Club, which includes the United States, Germany, France and other wealthy nations, that allowed it to pay off about $30 billion in accumulated debt for about $12 billion, an overall discount of about 60 percent.
Now look at the mess Buhari has left Nigeria with external debt of $27 billion , growing internal debt of $60 billion and a currency that has tanked
In 2011 Buhari said that oil subsidies is fraud, yet he persisted with oil subsidies for 6 years.
|Politics / Re: Obasanjo Is A Disgrace To Nigeria – Nabena, APC National Publicity Secretary by sulaak(m): 8:02pm On Sep 22|
OBJ left $60 billion in foreign reserve, $38 billion in ECA and $3billion external debt. He introduce the mobile phone industry by replacing CDMA with GSM.

|Politics / Re: Osinbajo: Government Has No Business Running Oil Refineries by sulaak(m): 8:00am On Sep 22|
The UK government listed failing government agencies such as British Telecom and Royal mail on the stock market , now both companies are success stories valued at billions of dollars with efficient customer value.
|Politics / Re: Osinbajo: Government Has No Business Running Oil Refineries by sulaak(m): 7:43am On Sep 22|
After wasting and stealing billions of dollars importing dirty fuel and maintaining comatose refineries, this useless government has finally come to the conclusion that government has no business in the refinery business.

|Politics / Re: Osinbajo: FG Collaborating With Investors To Improve Nigeria’s Digital Sector by sulaak(m): 8:01am On Sep 20|
The Buhari government should focus on its own bad actions, taking a $500 million loan to digitalising NTA is a waste of money.
The government should take loans and invest in local digital companies that can build broadband infrastructures that will connect schools, homes and government establishments. The loans will build of the digital companies capabilities and experience in service delivery and maintenance.
No Foriegn Investor is interested in a country that has no FX. How will they remit their profits.

The best advise.
Always focus on your long term objective. Your PHd should provide you with a wider window of opportunities. I hope you are involved in a STEM programme.

|Business / Re: “I Discovered Banana Island” Terry Waya Claims by sulaak(m): 11:41pm On Sep 16|
So who discovered Banana Island?
BTW Adeleke wasn't compensated.
|Business / Re: “I Discovered Banana Island” Terry Waya Claims by sulaak(m): 12:40pm On Sep 16|
Terry Waya is a liar.
The founder and designer of Banana Island is Adebayo Adeleke
The original Banana Island construction project entitled Lagoon City was the brainchild of the Late Chief Adebayo Adeleke, a University of London trained Civil Engineer (MICE), and CEO of City Property Development Ltd.
Chief Adebayo son is a former navy seal and Hollywood actor Remi Adeleke

|Politics / Re: Buhari: Nigeria Needs Loans For Roads, Rail, Power by sulaak(m): 9:00am On Sep 16|
Buhari never had a plan for Nigeria, he just wanted power to embedded his Fulani clan into key area of government and the economy of the country, that they lost under OBJ and GEJ.
A leader with a plan would have fixed the refineries within two years, completed Ajaokuta steel plant and invested in the development of the Bitumen reserve in Ondo, this will automatically bring down the cost of construction of road and rails.
|Politics / Re: Buhari: Nigeria Needs Loans For Roads, Rail, Power by sulaak(m): 8:50am On Sep 16|
Nigeria needs loans but how will the pay for it? The country cannot depend on the unstable oil market to generate the necessary FX .

Should Nigeria still be maintaining open gutters in 2020.
Seriously do you see open gutters in modern societies. Serious societies have replace open gutters with underground drainage systems because of environment and health reasons.
Steel and cement pipes are readily produced across Nigeria.
|Politics / Re: Why NLC Won’t Protest Hike In Petrol, Electricity Tariffs Yet – Wabba by sulaak(m): 8:54pm On Sep 13|
The should have protested for accountability and oversight that the oil refineries should be first fixed and repair before the oil subsidies are remove.
Buhari and APC is just an extention of APC, 6 years in government, yet the refineries are still not working and the government has been lying to Nigerians that they have removed subsidies.
This is 2016:
|Politics / Re: Nabena: Obasanjo/Atiku That Midwifed National Rot Cannot Chart Way Forward by sulaak(m): 4:36pm On Sep 13|
OBJ wasn't great but he cleared our foreign debts, left $60 billions in reserves and $36 billion in the excess crude oil funds, the mobile phone industry was liberalised and banking industry was maturing.
Yes, he failed in the electricity distribution and generation, oil refineries and managing the privatisation of Nigeria assets , but Fulani herdsmen weren't roaming across the country with impunity, when OPC misbehaved he shut them down.
Tinubu hand picked the sick Buhari and look at the result today, a divided country that is now at war with itself. The Yoruba's have created Amotekun to protect themselves against marauding Fulani's herdsmen, what do you think will happen when armed Yoruba's operative clash with the Nigeria Army....anarchy.

It was the right thing to do in 2012 but they protested.
Right now, when million of Nigerians are facing starvation, unemployment and COVID-19, increasing oil price is actually the wrong thing to do.

|Politics / Re: We Will Fix Refineries With Money Saved From Subsidy Removal - Timipre Sylva by sulaak(m): 8:06pm On Sep 11|
I strongly agree that the refineries must be privatised but the last people to oversea privatisation is the crook Atiku and EL-Rufai, we are still recovering from their privatisation of the paper mill, Ajaoukuta and ALSCON to their corrupt friends.
|Politics / Re: FG To Give Up Majority Stakes In Its 4 Refineries, To Be Privately Managed by sulaak(m): 8:50am On Sep 11|
They need to scrap NNPC, an organisation called Nigeria National Pertroleum Corporation that can't extract, explore, transport and refine oil and gas after 45 years operations.
|Politics / Re: FG To Give Up Majority Stakes In Its 4 Refineries, To Be Privately Managed by sulaak(m): 8:42am On Sep 11|
The best decision by this useless government. I doubt any investor of integrity wants to be in partnership with this corrupt government. The country should identify investor capabilities such as Indorama and BUA Group
