With the way this government and it's supporters celebrate mediocrity and petty news eh, if they were jonathan who on his first foreign visit to the u.s successfully negotiated the removal of nigeria from the list of terror countries, they will send astronauts to the moon to embellish it for every living thing in planet earth to see. Pathetic lot!!

Calling this inept president a dictator is an insult to dictators, at least they have direction, this president does'nt have a direction, he is dull and ignorant, a broken compass has more direction than him and it is clearly written over the country months into his disastrous presidency.

In trying to bring him down, they are bringing down themselves and inflicting themselves with confusion and in fighting while the gentleman ex president lives above the fray.

Alphaoscar:the administration of Peter odili laid the foundation and abandoned it and Wike has completed and commissioned it in less than 100 days in office. Because this was the first project he initiated upon being sworn in. Ameachi did not add a single block or play any role in this faculty.

Even when Yar adua was away at Saudi Arabia sick, jonathan never sat on that seat till he became acting president. Sambo never sat on that seat during the jonathan era.

|Politics / Excess Ponmo Consumption By Nigerians, Killing Leather Industry. by Symphony007: 12:56pm On Aug 18, 2015|
Ponmo consumption: Nigeria losing out of $75bn global leather industry - survey
Mr. Olufemi Aluko, of the Faculty of Clinical Sciences, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) , Ile-Ife, says Nigeria is losing out in the pack of countries competing for the 75 billion dollar global leather industry because of ponmo consumption.
Aluko blamed the situation on the country’s neglect of the leather products industry in favour of oil production and consumption of its hides and skin as ponmo.
The don cited global industry report as confirming the situation urged the nation’s policy drivers to refocus on the sector as it holds great potential for export earning and employment.
As we strive to diversify the nation’s economy I advised the Federal Government to create sound, supportive and transparent policies that will revive leather goods industries in Nigeria.
Aluko said, “Nigerian leather goods businesses must develop procedures to ensure developed markets where products are compliant with environmental and social responsibility requirements as well as international satndards.’’
The lecturer explained that the formal leather goods industry had declined almost to extinction which could only be revived by transparent business policies.
According to him, the formal leather goods sector must be revived particularly to supply the domestic, regional and international markets.
He said that considerable hard work would be required by the public and private sectors in coordination for the sector to make considerable further progress but this is necessary as we refocus our economy and use of our abundant hides and skins for leather products rather than for consumption as `ponmo’.
The lecturer added that economic growth and employment benefits from the sector were potentially considerable.
“Nigeria is, globally, perhaps the most important exporter of light leather.
“ The leather tanning sector has made remarkable progress in recent years as it has progressed from export of raw and wet blue leather to finished leather.’’
In spite of the fact that `Ponmo,’ a delicacy made from hides and skin has been popularised mostly by the people of the South West, it has no nutritional value, Miss Yemisi Olowookere, a Nutritionist at Garki Hospital General Hospital, Abuja, said.
“Its continous consumption has continue to generate concerns on its adverse effect on the tanning and leather industry in the country,’’ Olowookere said .
Olowookere said that Ponmo only appeals to the taste buds when properly prepared and has no nutritional benefits.
According to her, Ponmo, is basically cow skin that has been processed to look similar to beef which is sold in the markets and an important ingredient in the preparation of several stews in various cultures.
“Most Nigerians love Ponmo so much that some believe a good day meal is incomplete without It; Ponmo is a regular sight at parties and several public outings, served in different forms.
“It would be quite shocking for some people to know that Ponmo contains little or next to nothing in terms of nutritional value,’’ Olowookere said.
She said the classification of Ponmo was based on their mode of preparation and colour, adding that some are white, cream and brown.
Olowookere raised concerns over some of the health status of some of the animals killed which must have been ill and undergoing treatments.
He noted that rearers sometimes ignore such situation and will go ahead to kill them, leaving the buyers vulnerable to chemicals in the animal skin.
“Some of the animals because of the ailments, they are usually given injection with contains chemicals.
“People don’t allow these chemicals to complete its cycle and be removed from the body; they sometimes go ahead to kill these animals.
“So, if you consume the ponmo, the tendency is that you are consuming the chemicals directly because the skin part of the animal retains most of the harmful substances,’’ Olowokere said.
She warned Nigerians to be careful of consuming` ponmo’ as the cow skins are usually not prepared in the best conditions.
Olowookere said before the ponmo was brought to the market, a lot of different unhygienic substances such as trash, wood, charcoal, rubber tyres and so on, are thrown into the furnace to sustain the blazing heat.
She, however advised that it was best to eat fish rather than ponmo.
Mr Yakub Matanmi, Chairman, Ponmo Dealers Association, Mushin Market said that the consumption of cow’s skin has been an age-long practice which no government could stop.
He said that the survival of countless people such as the butcher, cleaner and seller depends on the product.
“I don’t think the government can just stop the consumption of ponmo, so many things will go wrong.
“It is from this business the sellers, cleaners and butchers get to make a living and send our children to school, if you say we should start selling it as leather, we may not make as much profit.
“But if eventually the product is banned totally by the government, there is really nothing we can do about it, but that will definitely be the end of our business,” he said.
Matanmi said that the volume of ponmo consumed daily across the country could not be calculated, as more low-income earners and also wealthy people use it.

[quote author=seagulsntrawler post=37074483][/quote] where else are they engaged? The u.s has troops on every continent in the world, africom,soccom,etc..they have the largest military presence there is and where is russia on he world map? And yes, they will beat russia and with moderate cost considering they have the military budget of russia and the next 10 other military nation's combined. ...let's not forget they have the military bases on every continent in the world and aircraft carrier on all the world's seven seas so they ca launch an attack on russia and it's interest from anywhere, meanwhile russia can only operate from it's homeland. need I say more?

The dumb Russians and Chinese instead of coming up with their own technology is constantly thinking of stealing from the u.s and when they don't succeed, they send their third rate propaganda media to trash it, which is hilarious because nobody outside their indoctrinated populace listens or believes it......have they quit trying to steal the blueprints for the B2 stealth bomber that can fly passed the kremlin and the great Hall of the people without being seen on radar? keep trying folks or at least use your brain and come up with yours.
