Religion / Re: Pastor Poju Oyemade Deletes His Tweets After He was Attacked On Twitter by Volksfuhrer(m): 5:29am On Jul 01
Lastmessenger2:
He lost my respect for that last line. He should let the youth take their destiny in their hands and let see the outcome. Poorly planned in what sense? Must everyone follow the same method. Election is next year and things are taking shape and more things will unfold for peter obi.
If he likes tinubu let him invite on platform and see how many people will turn up to listen to his nonsense.
Recruit 50m youths,what will they eat?Corn,igbadu,cassava. So lame and shallow in thought.

He is right. Success has foresight, ergo, you need to plan to succeed. If the youths want power, they must first position themselves for power. What Poju is saying is that: success takes time; it's never an overnight event.

Politics / Re: Jaw-dropping Reasons Import Bans Have Never Worked In Nigeria by Volksfuhrer(m): 2:23am On Nov 13, 2019
The FG has done more harm over the years to Nigerians than all the states put together! Thank you for exposing the fallacies inherent in sloppy arguments advanced for banning imports.

Glistinin:

~Tosin Adeoti ...

But Dangote employs people, you say…

Yes, he does. According to the Company's 2018 Annual Report (15, Page 38), Dangote Cement has 17,447 direct employees. But I have always made the analogy of fuel scarcity to explain the irrationality of this argument. Hundreds of jobs across the country are created during periods of fuel scarcity. Several young men who would otherwise be sitting under the bridge are gainfully employed, moving jerrycans and easing the pains of car owners. So do you think it makes sense to protest for the government to make available regular fuel scarcity episodes?

Of course not. It's the same reason it makes no sense to praise the tens of thousands of jobs created by Dangote Cement cornering the market and making Nigerians pay through their nose when millions of jobs are waiting to be created by allowing geneuine competition in the cement industry and its attendant effect on the construction industry. Think of the businesses and employment waiting to be created if we are to bridge the 22 million housing deficit in Nigeria.

Our situation is dire. More than ever, we need entrepreneurs whose creative insights would unleash the potential in our economy. People like Dangote stand in the way of that...

...If you ban wheat, milk or vegetable oil today, as being advised by Aliko Dangote, the price will simply get beyond the reach of the masses, just like it's happened to rice and cement.

WHY DOES BANNING WORK ELSEWHERE AND NOT IN NIGERIA?

...there are two ways to judge this policy:

1. How competitive will the Nigerian fruit juice market be if we lift the ban today, 17 years later?
2. How strong is our exports?

On question 1, the Nigerian market will not be competitive. Remove the ban today and Nigerians will be attracted to the lesser prices of the foreign fruit juice products.
On question 2, we don't have a strong export market. In fact, Ghana which did not ban imports makes five times more than we do in exports (17).

In other words, the ban has not helped the country improve its domestic production, especially when you realize that while we have banned imported packaged fruit juice, we still import great amounts of juice concentrates (18). Companies import juice concentrates, mix it with water, bottle them up and transport them to the various markets in the country. We have mastered the art of deceiving ourselves...

...Import ban is not a magic wand or formula. Until what makes import ban work in other countries are in place, businessmen like Dangote who tout import bans as shortcuts to sufficiency in anything are only planning for your pockets.

See, let’s call a spade a spade and stop supporting nonsense. Sowore will only gain more popularity and notoriety for as long as they keep detaining him. Detaining him any much longer is not good for the image of the government. All supporters of Buhari must demand for the immediate release of Sowore.

Oga you are allowed to hate Igbos it's your business but you are not allowed to lie. Adewale Ademoyega in pages 75-76 of his book "Why we struck" states in clear terms when the "nucleus" of the coup first began to meet. Adewale Ademoyega, Kaduna Nzeogwu and Emmanuel Ifeajuna began the plot in 1961. How can you boldly post that Nzeogwu was recruited few months to the coup abeg grin

Honestly I'm not interested in the rest of the embarrassing stuff you posted because it's just too easy to debunk and we have laid all these your James Bond stories to rest over and over again. Its getting boring. I want that person I quoted to answer the question I asked. All these coup stories are a diversion to be frank

Sorry, I read Ademoyega but all he said was a bunch of stuff! I find it funny if not disingenuous that you readily quoted Ademoyega who was recruited by Nzeogwu himself. You don't present "facts" of a case by reading only one source, especially a self-serving one! It's obvious you haven't thoroughly researched the Jan 1966 coup...I repeat, Nzeogwu was recruited by Anuforo in October 1965! Many sources seem to corroborate this, including the report of Police Special Branch which investigated the coup! Try harder.

Nzeogwu coup or Ifeajuna coup who cares what the name was. Nzeogwu read the speech, Nzeogwu did the interviews, Nzeogwu trained the plotters. It was Nzeogwu's coup to the world. Besides Igbos practically controlled the Army so leave all this pettiness

If Igbos wanted to take over it would have been the easiest thing to do. Ironsi foiled the coup in Lagos, Ojukwu and Ike Nwachukwu kept Kano free from the plotters. In the West and North Igbos ensured the coup failed so your point is baseless. Your region was in a civil war called Operation Wetie and the plotters wanted to put Awo in power. Even primary school students know this now grin grin

Your attempt to divert attention has failed grin Pls teach us how Igbos forced the country into a nation before independence. Or just admit you have no facts and were faking it the whole time

He said the truth! Your rant only showed you knew next to nothing about the January 1966 Coup.

"Nzeogwu trained the plotters..."(!): which of the "plotters"? the ones in Kaduna or Lagos?

"Nzeogwu read the speech..." : that ipso facto made him leader of the Coup plot? Dogoyaro read the speech that brought Babangida to power...it didn't mean he lead the plot!

If you were truly familiar with the coup you would know that Nzeogwu was recruited only a few months before January 1966! Unbeknown to Nzeogwu, the "coup" was not a coup originally planned by Ifeajuna to take power from civilians and foist military rule on Nigeria...it was devised only to eliminate the political enemies of Zik and the NCNC, which explained the patterns of killings! Nzeogwu was duped big time by Ifeajuna and co. The "coup" was a success as planned by the "inner circle!"

Igbos did take over through Ironsi (Plan B) when the move to install Mbadiwe as acting Prime Minister (Plan A) failed! The North that called the coup an "Igbo coup" were not as clueless as once thought...they saw right through the charade. Events of the time forced such conclusion and I don't blame them...I put the blame on Ifeajuna's head and Igbo elders who didn't foresee the morbid consequences of his intent.

Having said that, I would like to add that Ironsi didn't foil the coup, he was too incompetent to do so...that lofty credit was Gowon's and Ejoor's!

Politics / Re: Why Atiku And PDP Wanted New Electoral Law by Volksfuhrer(m): 10:53am On Apr 17, 2019
netpro:
For years the PDP used our current electoral laws to conduct elections and there were good with it as it kept delivering a positive outcome to them. Just at the run up to the just concluded Presidential Election, the PDP and their candidate frantically pushed for a new electoral law to be adopted...

...Now that election has come and gone - seeing the lame attempt of Atiku and his party to smuggle fabricated figures with the claim it is from INEC Server, we can now look back and see why PDP wanted a new electoral law that uses electronic transmission of results. By now PDP would have simply relayed on the law to present figures that favour them and claim it were true result.

Also PDP's claim to have complete and unapproved access to INEC servers and database shows their confidence that the dubious Dubai Strategy was a go.

We are grateful to Mr. President for his vigilance in taming the massive fraudulent scheme deployed by Atiku and his crew to take power, institute corruption and enrich his friends.

Politics / Re: BREAKING: Nigeria Ranks 6 Miserable Country In The World by Volksfuhrer(m): 1:24pm On Apr 01, 2019
Rosskii:
If you notice, the countries on the top 6 of the list are these large developing nations like Brazil, Argentina, Nigeria, Turkey, etc. I'm surprised they didn't have China in there as well. The list is driven by geopolitics, not reality.

America is so paranoid that it sees these nations as potential threats to its hegemony, hence these ludicrous 'reports' they publish to distort reality and downgrade those nations. Nigeria for instance, is projected to become the 3RD most populous nation on earth after China and India, by 2050. Just 30 yrs from now. That's a big deal to bigwigs in the US and other western powers.

Venezuela has the world's largest oll reserves..... Brazil is the second largest economy in the Americas... Argentina is a growing economic threat, etc etc.

One way to curtail these places, in the US' eyes would be to paint them in the worst possible light, such as by claiming incredibly, that they are the ''most miserable places on earth''. More miserable than even war-torn hellholes!


Many here don't know these pronouncements are made to further some secret agenda of The West. I'm glad you saw through the shenanigans called "empirical studies!"

Scrap those wasters called "states" and go back to regional governments. There are to many civil service administrations plundering critical funds for infrastructure, in the name of "salaries" which directly only benefit the civil servants. Fiscal federalism with the current 36 states will not succeed; in fact, many states will become bankrupt...and that is the major reason why restructuring is being challenged!

Go and read up on Nigerian history. The declaration had nothing to do with the coup, it had everything to do with Gowons refusal to honour the Aburi agreement he signed in Ghana





If those came after Ironsi did worse than he did then Ironsi should be praised for being the best of a bad bunch






Compare Ironsi to Gowon:

Ironsi kept the 4 Regions he inherited, Gowon came in and abolished the 4 Regions and created 12 states. Other Military leaders continued Gowons "state creation" and we have 36 states today.

Ironsi maintained resource control/and fiscal responsibility for the 4 Regions. Each Region kept 50% of what they produced, Gowon came in and scrapped resource control and changed the revenue sharing formular. Today, states are begging for 13% when it was 50% under Ironsi


What is funny about the whole thing is that the Northerners said one of the biggest reasons for removing Ironsi was the unification decree, they came in and enacted decrees that were far worse than Ironsi's unification decree. The Northerners and their Yoruba cohorts have done far worse than Igbos or Ironsi ever did and have lost the moral right to criticise Igbos

Story.

Ironsi planted the "power grubbing" seed for selfish reasons...the North responded with their own upgrade! Whether "Northerners and their Yoruba cohorts" outdid their Igbo compatriots in "power play" is not the issue, the real "koko" is that Ironsi taught Nigeria how to use power solely to the benefit of their kinsmen. When you set a bad precedent and later complain that others did far worse is, frankly speaking, emotionally unintelligent...isn't revenge usually much worse than the original sin?

They said that Igbos were greedy and conducted a coup. To this day, they keep talking about it. But here are some interesting facts:

1) When Igbos declared their own country and went their way, it was the same Nigeria that decreed war and came to fight for 3 years to bring Igbos back into "one Nigeria"

Igbo officers sowed the wind, it backfired...they then decided to run away from the whirlwind by declaring Biafra...the rest is history. Ironsi and co decreed "one Nigeria," you go enjoy the "one Nigeria" nah.

gidgiddy:

2)They said that Ironsi took away powers from the Regions and introduced unitary rule. But those who came after Ironsi did far much worse. They not only took even more powers than Ironsi did, they went a step further to abolish the 4 regions and create states, thereby making Nigeria far more unitary than Ironsi

Yea, "those who came after Ironsi" perfected Ironsi's idea and created more states for their own benefits! What the heck was wrong with that? Were Ironsi's intentions in the first place not beneficial to his kinsmen?


gidgiddy:


3)They said that Igbos conducted a coup and killed people from other Regions...

Na lie? Answer the question and quit tap-dancing around it!


Get this, Ironsi and those who supported the Unification Decree were myopic, self-serving morons who created this current mess. Why didn't Ironsi just leave the regions as they were with their autonomy. Nooo! He needed to invade the Northern Civil Service with his kinsmen and dominate the "backward" Northern Region, just because he was the Supreme Commander of the Nigerian Army! But when power changed hands, the slogan was no longer "one Nigeria" but "Biafra or death!"
