He is just trying to let you guys know that he has an option. If you guys like, continue to vote bad leaders. He'll be fine.

I know some of you will want to say rubbish to him but it's the fact. You don't want to know how much the wealthy class spend to give birth to their children in North America or how much they spend to acquire a second citizenship. They all want to have options.

But you see the average man on the street, they only have Nigeria and they are the ones insulting people fighting for them. The average Nigerian love their oppressors. That's why I always tell people that we deserve our leaders.

Peter has done well for himself and his family. He'll be fine regardless of who wins the 2023 elections.

If Burna boy and the likes can buy a Lamborghini urus of 200 million , where as there are a lot of those and more on Lagos roads and car dealership show room .
I don't see why a presidential candidate shouldn't be able to afford 100 million, it means if you're truly a presidential material then you should have people who can fund your ambition . And don't let anyone pretend they don't have the 100m coz their vehicle escort is more than 100m

Politicians are mostly public servants! Even if public servants have more than 100m in their account, isn't it is suspicious if they are able to buy a presidential form worth 100m? You are comparing them to entertainers who make huge money from shows and endorsements.

If people fund your ambition with 100m, when you become president, some of them will expect to be paid back. Regardless of how you look at it, APC is encouraging corruption and looting.

so unfortunate, what you want does not matter at the moment, the party delegates will make that decision.
What I and millions of Nigerians want matter. Nigerians will decide who they want as their leader on election day. Unless you guys plan to do some Abracadabra. I am sure it's on Lagosians that love the mandate group. Ya'll should keep it.

let me educate you.....
The mandate group has the highest number in lagos APC then, it was led by aregbesola and cardinal odunbaku, they were the ones who said ambode will not be allowed to go for 2nd term.

Backtrack; when ambode collected the contract from lawma contractors, the mandate group begged ambode but he did not move, aregnesola came from osun state because of the issue, ambode kept him waiting for hours without no headway.

Remember that buhari called tinubu to abuja 2 times on the issue, after meeting with mandate group, the group led by his asst leader baba eto, said if APC try to give ambode the ticket they will vote for the opposition party.

IF YOU ARE ASIWAJU WHAT WILL YOU DO?

Many people think tinubu makes all the decision alone all the time, but it is not true.

When tinubu was against fashola 2nd time, the party told him that if you go against this man , the party will lose.

Tinubu is a party man, who always put the party first.

Good. We don't want a Nigeria Mandate group. We don't want a group of selfish individuals deciding the future of our country.

Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 21 by Upton: 3:56pm On Apr 06
buchito1:
Hi guys! Guess who's in Canada!! grin

LANDING GIST!!!! BRACE YOURSELF tongue

So my trip was Lagos - Vancouver via Ethiopian Airline by 1:40pm wasn't a smooth one, but I thank God..

Arrived the airport very early, but the queue at the airport no be here! Airport was crowded, scattered, nothing was orderly at the Airport. After waiting for almost 1hour on the queue, one devilish immigration officer eventually told me to join a wrong line, and I lost my spot, and had to go back to the queue again! I almost comot my boxer swear for this guy! angry

He just kept apologising, that's what calmed me down sha.
Got to Ethiopian Airline/Naija Immigration checks, was sha asked for my Passport, Acceptance Letter, Arrive Can, Vaccination Card, Covid-19 TEST PCR (which I eventually did, cause I just didn't want any issue and problems.) they told a Chinese lady there to go get a Covid-19 Test and I'm sure she missed the flight, and that was all.

Going through checks to board my flight, begging and taxing everywhere at Naija Immigration, I no give anyone 10kobo, cause no be their papa gimme money I use apply for Visa or pay any of my expenses, my check-in bags were searched and unfortunately, those wicked Naija Immigration seized my body lotion, body and anti persperants deodorants was 3, like 5 hair cream, everything seized was worth almost 15K. (I eventually found out, I wasn't meant to check in those kinda stuffs) Guys please learn from me. Don't check in with those sorta stuffs, they should be included inside your boxes. Begged and begged this woman, she no gree, gave me the option of taking it back to my fam outside, family wey don begin dey go house, or trashing it there( which kine mumu trash? Na them go use am, BASTARDDDSSS) I eventually found out na money she dey find, but unfortunately, I didn't have cash with me. Gave out all my naira. Dem no born me well give am $100 notes cause na only wetin I carry be that.

Eventually I was the 2nd to the last person to board on the plane. Almost missed the flight. Was running like a FOOL! Immediately I boarded, wasn't up to 8mins, we took off . ENROUTE >>>>>>>ADDIS ABABA (5hours 20mins)

Food was terrible, met Nigerians that were leaving the country. Addis Ababa Airport is really beautiful, see difference between Naija Airport and Ethiopian Airport nau. Everything orderly and arranged.
Didn't stay at the Airport for up to 40mins. Got into my next flight to Toronto, longest journey of my life (16hours 20mins)!

Guys my ass became numb! embarassed Thank God it was a night flight, I just kept sleeping and watching movies on my phone. Couldn't watch their movies cause the earphone they gave me was trashy. Almost couldn't hear anything with it. With the whole noise from the aircraft. Though they had good collections of movies.

Fast forward >>>>> We landed Toronto Airport, the airport is a beauty! Jesus! Beauty at it's peak. Everything was too organised. I kept asking God who did this to Naija? Cause it's just not fair! Was going with the crowd, omo guys follow who know Road, and keep asking questions. Everybody in Canada is always happy to help in anyway they can.

I went straight to the Immigration Officers, I was fortunate, I didn't spend up to 15mins on the queue before it got filled up and crowded.

There was this stand where one Immigration Officer was loud and asking this Naija guy plenty of questions! In my mind I was like, God please don't let me go to this same guy! Pleaseeeeeee! Naso e reach my turn for Immigration, ghen ghen! Na that same man them post me go! Quickly told my siblings on WhatsApp to pray for me to pass this Immigration checks, they told me only my mama prayers should sort that out for me. And,

Guys guess what? This Man asked me for just my PASSPORT!!! That was all! And asked me how long I'd be studying and who my sponsor was, and where my school is. I didn't spend up to 45 seconds with him. And he printed my permit. Like I was like really? How? Covid-19 Test? Introduction Letter? Acceptance Letter? Proof of Fund? ArriveCan? Tuition Receipts? Vaccination Card? Everything wey i print out? Baba ask me something at least nah... grin Nothing! Only my Passport! Is God not wonderful? Loll.. He is for sure!

Proceeded to my next flight to Vancouver (Air Canada) The queue was terribly long. Was on queue for almost 50mins. After checks, I begin run again, normal level. I was like the second to the last person to board. Immediately, we left. Another 5hours flight! God I was tired of flying! � This journey ain't for the weak. I angrily forced myself to sleep. And kept seeing the series on my phone.

Finally, we arrived Vancouver! But unfortunately, my bags weren't complete. My bags were missing, they tracked it, and saw its still at Toronto, it didn't come in with the flight. Air Canada fall my hands for that one. Was disappointed. My apartment to the Airport is almost an hour drive. They offered to deliver it to me anyway, make i still dey observe them.

Guys I stepped out of the Airport in Vancouver, and the COLD that hit me, blood of Jesus Christ! I never believed it! It was just 12° ohh!! And to think Vancouver has the best weather in Canada? Haaaaa!

Na why people full here and it's extremely expensive. Guys make person no lie give you, Canada is extremely COLD!!!!!!
Thank God for my cousin who came to pick me up at the Airport.

It's 5:55am as I type this, and we're on 4°c, so prepare yourself please, and come with your winter jacket socks, head warmer and hand gloves, yes even if our own for Naija na rubbish, carry am come like that, e dey useful! Thanks to my sister and a friend in Vancouver that forced me to buy it.

So in a nutshell, I thank God for a safe trip into Canada. When I sit and reminisce on it, omo! This Canada isn't for the weak! I thank God for this platform (Nairaland), y'all are a blessing, also met good people that have turned friends through Nairaland.! A bigger chunk of thanks goes to my FAMILY. Without them, I wouldn't be here. Mehn, y'all are the real MVP!

The whole journey wouldn't have started at the first place.
Those delayed, please don't relent, please, it's definitely gonna be worth it in the end, those waiting for an update on their app, please keep praying and keep being optimistic, God would definitely perfect your application.

Guys story don finish, make i go back to sleep. I had to do this, make una no think say I don run, which I can't. grin

It has ended in praise for me. I hope it does same to each and everyone here.

Thank you. cool


Congratulations!!!

Please have ET and Airfrance stopped asking for enrollment letter at Naija Airport? And when are you starting classes?

Hey guys, anyone with a bsc sociology? Please which post graduate diploma of graduate certificate programs can someone with a sociology degree apply for in Canada?

I tried checking myself but I only found related diploma programs and masters programs. Undergraduate grades aren't high enough to get into masters and from what I read on earlier threads, It is important to show the visa officer educational progression, so applying for an undergraduate diploma program may not help the visa application process. Please advise. I appreciate.
Foreign Affairs / A New World Order by Upton: 3:09am On Mar 22
There has been a lot of conspiracy theories about a new world order. Many of us have refused to believe it. Watching Biden's presser today talking about America leading the next world order was like a shock. I am not sure what to think about this New World Order. Can someone explain?

Biden: “Now’s the time when things are shifting. There’s going to be a New World Order.”

I want nothing to do with this “New World Order.”

Who’s with me?

That question is difficult to answer directly of your airfrance flight only has one stop in france then you are enroute to Canada then no transit visa is reqired but if your airfrance has more than one stop on the EU a transit visa might be needed

Thank you.

Travel gist.

So at the Toronto airport I got my study permit in like 15 mins. The guy asked me for my arrive can, my letter of introduction, my LOA from my school, my proof of payment and also asked me for proof of funds. I provided everything.
He gave me my study permit and gave me a number to call to extend my permit if I want to stay longer.

It was very simple and easy.

If you have any questions you can ask me.

Congratulations.

Please do you need a transit visa to fly with air France?

Politics / Re: Emir Of Kano, Air Peace Row Deepens by Upton: 8:00pm On Feb 27
flokii:


Ideally, airlines are not meant to delay or cancel flights without tendering apologies to their customers, just that we overlook too many things in Nigeria.

From the look of things, the Emir's cousin is a pilot and he knows the rules which he can use against Allen Onyema's Air peace and get the airline sanctioned, so the ideal thing would be for Air peace management to tender the apology to not only the Emir but everyone affected.

What are you saying?

Do you realize that it was the Emir that allegedly wanted Airpeace to delay a flight that was already prepared to take off?

If Airpeace's side of the story is true, then they absolutely do not need to apologise. Should they apologise to the Emir for coming behind schedule?

Who cares if the Emir's cousin is a pilot? If Airpeace has done nothing wrong as they claim, them they shouldn't apologise publicly. They should resolve the situation in private.

Modified: I just read Bayero's reply. If truly it was Air Peace that delayed the Emir's flight from Banjul to Lagos, then they should find a way to resolve this. They should apologise if they need to because that's the genesis of this whole thing.

Both parties should be sincere and own up to their faults. There's no need to fight over this.
