We young people in Nigeria need to start showing more interest in HOW government actually functions and the processes that keep the wheel of govt running. Our inexperience is failing us at this crucial moment.
I have participated FULLY in these protests and have had several conversations with very intelligent people on this agitation.
I get that emotions are high, people are angry but we need to take a step back and ask ourselves very important questions. Logical questions
For instance with #ENDSARS 1. Who exactly controls SARS? 2. What is the chain of command in SARS?
3.if an IG gives an order, how does it get to EVERY SARS officer in the country? And how fast can every SARS officer get that order? 4. What is the process of disbandment?
Most Nigerians join the Police force after they've failed to secure admission into a regular tertiary institution or find meaningful employment.
That leaves us with a police force full of brutish,trigger-happy,half-baked illiterates exploiting the civilian populace for survival.
There is nothing inspiring about the regular police officer one sees among us. Interview a section of primary and secondary school students and you'd hardly find anyone who dreams of being a police officer. That institution is mostly reserved for losers
And I think we need to start fixing the problem from there. An institution that is a haven for failures and misfits cannot be tasked with protecting us.
They are more interested in exerting their new-found power over us or extorting us for their next meal.
If you happily collect investor money and then start a legal drama when time for meeting your end of the deal comes, you're only scaring off future investors. That's the case involving Healthplus and its PE investors. Actions by private companies can be bad for FDI in the country
If you sign a deal with a PE firm within a stipulated amount of time, their interest takes precedence especially when you sold majority of shares to them.
They have the right to Influence and try to enact changes (based on signed agreement) to protect their investment
This is something entrepreneurs should start taking serious within the country. Wanting to inject investor money to expand your business is not enough.
Being fully aware of the term of the agreement you signed should be a priority.
Last year my woman was sick and was hospitalised for 4 days or so. I slept in that hospital for the entire four days; running errands and making food.
And we were not even married oo. It is now my wife I'd leave in the labour room for Isiewu? I'd grow cobwebs in that hospital
I took an emergency leave from work. Some of my colleagues from the office (they're on Twitter and can read this tweet) came to pay visit at the hospital.
That is how we are devoted to our women. We go the extra mile to make them comfortable, to love, care, protect
This Patriarchy FC trend is on one part pure bants/Jokes and on the other hand a backlash at the group of activists who've made it a lifestyle to throw aspersions at men, demonize men, slander men. Patriarchy FC bants is an "we don't give a fuck" middle finger at them. Simple.
If the people of Southern Kaduna hear the kind of military Siren currently blaring in every corner of Edo state, no bandit or herdsman will have to courage to go and murder them in their sleeps. But I guess ballot boxes are more important than the lives of Nigerians. Priorities.
It doesn't make sense that about 31,000 police, mopols, DSS and other security operatives are deployed JUST to secure ballot boxes for an election when the people of Katsina, Southern Kaduna etc are asking for less than half that number so murders will stop killing them.
Do we really need that much number to prevent a thugs and hoodlums from snatching ballot boxes and disrupting elections?
But of course this isn't really for the love of Democracy.This is a tactic to intimidate voters and attempt to muscle INEC officials during the election.
This life so unfair to we men sha. So a lady accused you of sexual assault and it is left to you to spend a tonne of money on legal processes trying to prove yourself innocent or you carry the rapist tag for life.What if Dr. Funmi doesn't have the money to take the case to court?
And this his case is making me more sympathetic towards guys who threaten to take legal actions and suddenly backtrack.
Do you know how much it takes to hire lawyers? And someone like Funmi who even had to hire lawyers in pounds, then repeat the process in Naira
Sometimes people really want to go the legal process. But then when they calm down from their rage and calculate what it'd cost, they just decide to let it go.
But then the "rapist" tag hangs on. I really think that is so so unfair, especially for those falsely accused
The truth is that most Nigerian men are incapable of loving women who don't need their money.
So much of our definition of love is tied to what we can use money to do for women. It like money is the only medium of love we have.
I say this because I was guilty of this in my whoring days. Dated two women who were VERY okay (one was even had more money than me). And God knows I struggled. But I learnt a lot about my inadequacies and I've worked so hard in correcting much of that over time.
