  1. Waoo this will be nice

    *Larry was here*

  2. I have a problem with numbers 3,4, and 12.

    3) does it mean individuals cannot bid? Cos individuals pay taxes to their various states of residence. Hence possess only TIN from state governments.

    4) with that N1k non-refundable fee, FGN can actually fund it's deficit budget if all Nigerians bid. FGN is not supposed to make profit from us.

    12) we all know that Nigerian civil servants, especially the "ogas at the top" will colonise the bid by proxy.

    Hmmm...which way naija?...
