6 months Jor Linda.In Naija,prison doesn't stop any appointment or political career oo,infact it boost ur chances.its not even up to a year sef.

ephee said...

what is the probability that after 6 months you wunt be accused again and moreova hw will u work hard to save another 5 million after being an exconvict.

my own opiniion is i would prefer to spend the 6 months in prison then come out and set up a business of my own which could yeild me another 5 million.

Anonymous said...

Go 6 months jail sharp sharp abeg... with rent free and no bills to pay mean while 5 million is yeilding some great interest in the bank... Nothing Spoil jor!

@anon 6:22 naija no be d place ppl border abt criminal record.obasanjo enter prison but e come later b our president. check all d rich and respected guys in naija majority of them got criminal records. so trust me doin 6months will even groom u to be sucessful in naija. so linda ama do 6months shikina

Prison isn't an option and especially in Nigeria.
Kanyinulia; touche!

Anonymous said...

So long as u've been convicted, paying the fine or spending time in jail doesn't make any difference, you are an ex-convict unless a higher court determines otherwise. I'd rather go to jail that give up 5 mil 4 some govt official to embezzle. Lekwenu m eshishi.

I would pay the fine, I don't need a bad future record so that banks and family won't trust me. By God's grace time go dey to may 100 million.

6 months of course! My money is my money o,nobody should play with it or take it away.

Whether u pay fine or u go to jail, u are an ex-convict once found guilty of a crime. Salisu Buhari cannot vie for public office unless he gets amnesty and it was just N10k fine.

I will jejely go to jail and think of how to erase my conviction record with the smallest amount of money.

@Kanyinulia, only ex-convicts make it in Nigeria. Read: OBJ, Bode George, Timpolo

Am so gonna do d tym nd keepin my money,,,cos either ways I'd still av a̷ criminal record so wth

bukchris said...

Abeg give me the six months ojare. after all prison time is day and night so 6months is 3months.

Ezems said...

Please, let them come and cuff me! 6 months will definitely come to pass.

Chigozie Ekwonu said...

I'll fix the 5.7 milla in the bank or invest it in something else and go to jail. When i'm out of jail i'll have even more money waiting for me.

6months in prison baibi!! b/cos any which ways ill still hv ex-con to my credentials.. im a lawyer so dis-baring go join choi!!!!!!

6 Months in prison if I will also get back to work-__-

Critical observer said...

5.7m can never be commensurate with 6months in prison so its too easy!

Bamidele said...

LINDA-LINDA, There is an adeage in Yoruba that says, "Oruko rere o san Ju wura ati fadaka lo" A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, also its better than silver and gold.. Once a convict is always a convict with the Tagged EX-CONVICT. So someone should have a second thought.

6 months joor

Lollllllllllllllll
The reaction from my fellow Nigerians is hilarious.lolllllll
I can tell that a lot of people would rather go to jail.THis is serious o.I hope say una dey joke o;if not our kids are in trouble o!kai!!
Well in a country where an ex convict became governor and prisoners released became president I see the rather shortsighted reasoning.lolllllll
The question get k legs.First you save for 3 yrs to get 5.7million??Then you are in trouble with the law?Then you have an option of bail 5million or 6months prison time?
Sorry dear,I choose not to answer this rhetorical but k legged question!

jeff said...

i will rather spend d six months in prison than giving them 5m

Anonymous said...

I prefer 2go 2 prison them no build dat place 4dog abi

Anonymous said...

Spending 6mnths in jail or paying d fine will make u an exconvict. Payment of d fine render u guilty of d offence,it's a penalty also just like d jail term. Thus it's a matter of preference. I wuld rather do d time!

Uchlady said...

Linda...U no specify which country the prison dey....

Cynthia said...

Linda i hope you are not the one going to prison ooo! Some people said if you stay in jail u will become an ex convict but if u pay the fine u won't.
Are u not paying the fine for crime committed? Will the criminal record be totally wiped off from d police record? So whether u spend d time in jail or pay the fine, u still have a criminal record attached to your name!
As for me, its better to spend that 6 months relaxing in jail at least with the money i will be able to bribe the police to get a personal room. When i come out, spend some thousands on myself to get back in shape. 6 months is not too much.

Anonymous said...

Well, being a convict is all about being convicted in court, doesn't matter if you go to prison or not. My take though!

Anonymous said...

no need to think twice on this nah 6 months all the way you think say nah beans to have 5.7 milla no be small thing ohhh for this naija way we dey

Anonymous said...

This shouldn't be hard. give me 6 months Ma. period. C C

Anonymous said...

Ofcourse i'll do the jail time. In naija prosin, u can enjoy in jail o. believe me. See Al mustapha na, he was waving and blowing kisses and looked like he just stepped out of his house when he was sentenced. Abeg, i'll spend max 2m naira to make myself extra comfortable if need be. That still leaves me with plenty money. By the way, in naija, being an ex-con can make you become president sef. Check history.

Anonymous said...

6 months in jail probably get off in 3 months with good behavior, and you come back to your 5.5 million naira or pay 5 million naira avoid jail term but you only have .5million naira gosh which is better? Hope that helps

Going to jail is not something that has no price upon its head especially in Nigeria. An ex-convict is an ex-convict just as a shovel is not a spade. Your career is worth more than 5.7million especially when you have been tagged an ex-convict its difficult getting a job.For the bigger boys plying into politics,no room for ex-convicts even for six months there.

It isnt 10yrs -life imprisonment..its just six months.i'd'rather do the time than get broke in one day.

Linda na which kind question be this na? The responses so far shows that most nigerians are ready to commit crime and go to jail if that will make them become rich. Well, I choose to work hard and save and also ensure that I dont find myself on the other side of the law. The blessing of the Lord makes me rich and adds no sorrow.

ha, i will go to prison straight up, at least that 6 months i will be able to draw my business plan so that i can start ma business when i come out. 6 months is a short time now, before you know it,its gone, but before you make that 5.7million again ehhh.

freshman said...

Getting into the prison would make me an ex-convict for life,which would be in my record.That in turn will affect me negatively in every ramification and survival in our society....To make such cash i know might be a bit hard but just have pay to save my image and future as well.

6 months straight up!!!!!
5M na beans?

The fact is u spending 6months in prison, you are already an ex-convict and u know is a tag.Is beta u give them d 5million and save ursef the shame.within dat 6months,if u work hard and with God by ur side hehhehhehehe u would surely make more money.U might even decide to go jail.But remember dat hackers are evrywhere.Even d so cal banks no send anyboby oooooo

Dis is very ridiculous, ow can one because of money go to jail. An ex-convict is really not a good initial or name especially if u want to succeed or have a greater prospect both home and abroad. thank God the money is there in the first place to bail yourself, pls, when there is life there is hope. that 5.7 million is not the end of the world.

I don't know if any one can remember James Ibori's case then when he was running for governorship candidate and his opponent brought it up that he was an exconvict. Guess wat!!! He turned the case around with his money and Judge presiding over the case said he was "sentenced but not convicted hence he was not an exconvict". But the story was that a long time ago before he went to London, just when he finished secondary he was arrested for stealing building materials and sentenced to 3 months. But he wiped d record off with his money some 30 something years after

Anonymous said...

You guys don't get it! You need to do some more research. Once you are convicted of a crime, whether the punishment is to pay a fine or go to jail, you are an ex-convict! Paying the money/fine does not remove the tag of ex-convict. Do a google/dictionary search.

ok, u go to prison and the next day after you are out, the money got stolen.

Of course I will give up the money, afterall it only took me 2 years of hard work to earn it.With my freedom, I can work another 2 years to get back what I lost.What if something happens to me during that 6 months in prison and I'm no longer around to enjoy the 5 million????

Exactly my thought. If na Naija prison i no dey go. I'll pay the fine. Forget the Obj, bode george etc type ex-convict,when a commoner goes to prison,it tells on him/her seriously when he comes out

If na Naija no wahala na,just a week or 2. Give them 200k and them go let you go.
