@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe I don’t know this man and I won’t hold brief for him however I had a personal experience that could have dented my image as a Nigerian but I Communicated well and was honest from onset. Please be patient to read through my story.
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe most Nigerians 95% of Nigerians present as honest hardworking individuals but 5%(about 10m since the population is at 200m currently) of the bad eggs spoil the show also the Nigerian system /govt is so terrible and stifle business, let me tell you my story….
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe I live in Toronto & I made friends at work as i was humble at first and did any legit job that came my way even as a medical professional.I made friends fast, good friends who came to trust me cos of my integrity some of them were from privileged white background
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe they liked me cos I brought up very smart ideas and I am a good sales man , before long we started flipping houses etc and then i suggested to them for us to pull money together to do business back in Nigeria. Hold on cos this is where it gets interesting 🤔
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe at first they were skeptical especially after hearing a lot about those 5% Of Nigerians I mentioned about that taint our image as a people but again they have dealt with me and they could trust me so they pulled each about $20k (total of $100k) ……
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe I was in high spirits and was proud I could convince these guys to trust me enough to commit their money into my charge , i set for Nigeria (it was some cosmetics and medical device) , I did everything by the book but the system refused us to thrive ……
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe first it was NAFDAC ( drug/medical device regulatory authority) then SON ( standard organization) and then other govt agencies involved , they frustrated the approval of this products amidst backhands , the Central bank also doled out some draconian rules ……
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe draconian policies that frustrated us even more including getting access to our own money in the bank. In the end it was futile as we have lost half of the money for nothing almost . I was open and honest with those who trusted me with their money….
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe I hate giving excuses and they know it and they saw everything I did and how i did it with evidence , i refunded them the remainder of the money and some of them i owed and paid off by flipping houses. My point exactly ???
@Bernieadufe @Bernieadufe most people may have good intentions but the system back in Nigeria trumps everything and instead of them to be honest and candid they hide and block off people. Just imagine if I hadn’t been candid in my case, they would probably have a Nigerian swindler to call out

ABOUT ABBA KYARI : (as seen elsewhere) :
“They are using a provision of the Nigerian constitution under the extradition section to justify that Abba Kyari is no more extraditable. See what the constitution says below…..
Mandatory Grounds for Refusal of extradition under the Nigeria law.

Section 3 subsection 11, No 9 of the Nigerian extradition law states that

“Extradition application will be rejected where the fugitive criminal has been charged with an offence, under Nigerian law, #abbakyari
other than the offence for which his surrender is sought, but has neither been discharged nor acquitted of the charge.”

“So many things going on in Nigeria appears deep, deeper than what the uninitiated can comprehend”
