People have born detained in Gitmo for about 18 years without trial by Americans. How has that damaged theirInternational reputation?

Are you serious? Do you need someone to explain to you the difference between a self-confessed/active Taliban member versus a political prisoner? The difference is clear except if you are in a full denial mode.

False!! A wife material does not mean she has to cook or washes the dishes all day.... A wife material is a woman who think like a man, when a lady thinks like a man she knows what is right for her family and what is not

What do you mean by "think like a man"?

Hopefully they will tell their pilots when flying not to rely on his/her instruments or GPS. Instead of banning it, complete a safety assessment and recommend a safe place to prop your devices while driving (e.g. by your speedometer, dashboard etc).

I mean like honestly how can this be smuggling. They're supposed to be concerned about those having bags for public consumption. These are just mother's who bought cheap and low quantity like that to feed themselves and their families why Will this be smuggling........ Heartless officers

It is very sad. Those officers are doing their jobs, I know. But blessed is the servant that implements his/her duty with common sense and sense of justice. The women in this video are mothers who are trying their best to feed their children and family. What we should be more worried about is, how did things get this bad. This is a new low for our beautiful country. I know the government is trying to imitate what China did or at least close to it (closed border for 40 years), but must also recognize that we are not China and don't have the kind of intellectual properties, cheap labour, and government (communism) that helped China build her Nation. We are a democratic Nation and should look to those with similar values to build our Nation. For God sake, even China had to relax communism a bit to benefit from Capitalism which is the backbone of western economy. God bless Nigeria, God bless our leaders (those who are willing to listen to the plight of our citizens).

China is not great because they closed their borders. China is great in their own way becuase they focused on producing world class technologies (from their intelligence, cheap labour, and partly from commandeering (some call it stealing)other peoples' intellectual properties. Whether you interprete it as stealing or not is another story. We cannot copy other country's approach and expect success. Border closing, when implemeneted, is usually done in a stepwise fashion with ample time for citizens to prepare and work with you to achieve a stated goal and not just done abruptly. It saddened me to see the video in which a lady (someone's daughter, wife, sister, mother and granddaughter) smuggled a handful of rice packed in a small nylon bag and placed into her bra and headtie. It is sad that our citizens have to descend to such a low state to fend for their families. May God guide our leaders to guide us with compassion and love.

I see nothing here because king is born to rule till death but president is made to expire after 4 or 8 years

That is not the point. It is a big deal in Yoruba culture for an elderly man to prostrate to someone younger than him. It goes beyond humility, in this case it was done in reference to the crown.

He is lucky that there were no mishaps (e.g. rotor blade accidently cutting off heads) during landing or take off. Clearly the public road is not a helipad (the minimum width, length or diameter of the final approach and takeoff area (FATO) of a general aviation helipad is 1.5 times the overall length of the design helicopter).I will only have respect for such a show if in his true heart of heart can try this in a Western country.

I agree with you. This will eventually pitch the people against his government if he is not careful. It must not be money driven but rather an opportunity to educate the populace without withholding proportionate discipline.

36  Forum / Relationships & Romance / Re: Heartbroken Man Drinks Sniper After He Was Dumped By His Girlfriend (Photos) on: 22-05-2019 12:09 AM
The manufacturer of Sniper or the seller should share some responsibilities for the deaths caused by their product. One way to take responsibility is to either dilute the product to the point where it is no longer harmful to human yet potent enough to exterminate rodents. Legislature should be floated and passed to this effect if we truly value the live of those struggling with mental disorders. It is easy to discredit them as "sick" but wait until similar product is weaponized (at wedding parties, water tank, and road side food), then we will all appreciate the importance of reducing the risk now. Thank you.

Instead of walking away when you see your fellow man in need, why not use your energy to start advocating for the "good Samaritan law." For those who don't know this law pls read about it. If we want Nigeria to grow we have to do more than the bare minimum. Thank you.

Mr. Bello you don try. According to your logic, please don't pray to God for your safety/protection as God is not your security guard too. Please don't forget the Nigerian army's motto: Victory is from God alone, and America's "In God we trust."   We all have looked up to God for something very important to us at one point or the other. Especially as a student or businessman/women. I believe in hardwork. But please don't push people away from the only source of hope when other things have failed. Thank you sir.
