|GEJ Vs Opposition: Major Hits And Misses by Nobody: 12:03pm On Mar 21, 2013|
1. DELIVERY ON OPPOSITIONS CAMPAIGN POINTS:
Am talking here about those national sore points the oppositions like to attack the PDP government on: Benin-ore Road, Lagos-Ibadan Express way, epilectic power situation, Delapidated facilities at our airports, 2nd Niger Bridge, Dreging of the river Niger, improved electoral process. Ok now they have to come up with new ones as all these are at different stages of completion. Never again will Adams use benin Ore road as a compaign gimmicks.
2. REMOVING JUSTICE SALAMI
This was actually an upper cut. The opposition didnt see this coming and when it happen the wolf cry was to high heavens. Salami has been known to have aided ACN to governorship seat s that they have lost at the pool. Also while presiding over Ekiti governorship disputes he was alleged to have exchange calls with ACN chieftains as revealed by his call log. His removal was a thunder bolt sucker punch and you need to see Tinubu’s face when it landed.
3. ALAMIEYESIGHA’S PARDON:
This is a sagacious political move that left the opposition mesmerized: Before now the opposition were relaying on the enemy within ie Rotimi Amaechi to break the fold of strong home base support for GEJ. GEJ has thus far being the only presidential candidates that has had overwhelming electoral victory in his home base averaging over 90% votes in all the ND states in 2011 election. This is what the opposition were hoping to scatter with Amaech support but with the introduction of THE GOVERNOR GENERAL OF THE NIGER DELTA ,the lion liver is now a mere wish for the dogs. As of the dramas that prelude Alams’s arrest and prosecution – The uk police aided escape, the Bayelsa state house of assembling sitting in lagos to impeach a governor ....I will leave all that for another day.
4. IN CHARGE OF HIS OWN PARTY
Ok, so everyone at the begining said GEJ is a weakling and that he is going to be OBJ stooge. Well the guy has proved all the book makers wrong. We all now know that GEJ is a man of his own. While the key figures in the opposition are battling to gain advantage in finding a foot hold in their ‘yet-to-be-registered’ APC, GEJ is in charge of his own party. From the chairman of BOT, to the national party chairman, to all the kingpins in the present day PDP, all are his men. Obj is ranting of course but then GEJ doesnt seems to “give a damn”.
5. VICTORY OVER ELIGIBILITY CONTEST:
GEJ outsmarted his opponent by going to court before them to challenge his own eligibility to contest and the court has ruled. So that piece of distraction has been cleared. So now all the fine argument on social medias on why he cant contest will just remained there.
1. WRONG TIMING FOR FUEL SUBSIDY REMOVAL IN 2012
2. WRONG CHOICE OF VP IN 2011
3. ALLOWING TANBUWAL TO BECOME SPEAKER
4. ALLOWING ELRUFAI TO COME BACK FROM ASYLUM WHERE HE RAN TO DURING YARADUA TENURE
5. NOT ARRESTING BUHARI FOR ALL HIS INCITEFUL COMMENTS THAT HAS LEAD TO THE KILLINGS OF HUNDREDS OF CHRISTAINS IN THE NORTH.

I have problem with liars and those who turn thruth up-side-down to hoodwink. Oshiomole and Rochas have said what Buhari said and we have all hailed them. He told his supporters to protect their votes and lynch stealers.
When you rig elections you should expect consequences. He cannot arrest Buhari because he knows the man stand for Integrity and uprightness.

Stop denigrating Buhari and Ayo Salami with your beer parlour agbero gossip
If SSS/Police have any evidence against them, why not arrest them?
Are they bigger than Nigeria?
Are they untouchable sacred cows?
Let us know instead of soiling their names
|Re: GEJ Vs Opposition: Major Hits And Misses by 1forall: 2:02pm On Mar 21, 2013|
OP this topic is dead on arrival and I'm not even gonna bother to criticize the failed points you're attempting to make.
Try as much as you may but it remains impossible to justify the colossal failure you have for an oga.
|Re: GEJ Vs Opposition: Major Hits And Misses by Goddex: 2:09pm On Mar 21, 2013|
Very good and objective analysis except for one of your misses -
"WRONG TIMING FOR FUEL SUBSIDY REMOVAL IN 2012". There is never a
time that will ever be convinient to remove fuel subsidy.
Opposition induced resistance will always arise.

In addition to the major hits listed by the Op, the following are the MAJOR hits of GEJ in the war against corruption:
1) Reduction in political corruption: The GREATEST corruption anywhere in the world is the shameless stealing of peoples votes through rigging of elections. Besides the corruption associated with the process of vote stealing, a leader that does not emerge by popular vote, will most likely be SENSELESSLY corrupt, since he does not need the people for anything. But a leader that was truely elected by his people, humbled by the process that brought him to power, will be less corrupt.
President Jonathan has since coming to power, ensured that political corruption is reduced to the barest minimum by insisting on credible elections at all times.
2) Free press: free press is one of the most potent weapons in the fight against corruption. Those who doubt its potency should enlighten themselves with books &several articles on free press, including " A free press is bad news for corruption" written by Beatrice Weder et al and "Only a free Press can root out corruption".
It should be recalled that Focus Nigeria, a popular TV programme on AIT was almost closed down the Yar Adua govt. In fact, the management of DAAR communications was forced to pull out the presenter of the programme, Gbenga Arulegba. Channels tv was also closed down by the Yar Adua govt for some days for reporting that Yar Adua was contemplating resignation.
It is an undeniable fact that under the govt of GEJ, the Nigerian press has enjoyed the HIGHEST degree of freedom.
3) Passage of the Freedom of Information Act: to further strengthen the press in Nigeria and to show that it has nothing to hide, the govt signed into law the Freedom of Information Act.This law empowers the press todemand for whatever information that will aid their work &was signed into law after decades of rejection by past govts.
4) Weeding Out Of Ghost Workers: for several years, public officials have defrauded the nation billions of naira using names of non-existing workers (aka ghost workers). The present govt is putting a stop to it by capturing the bio-data of all federal civil servants and implementing an integrated pay roll system.
Though the reforms have not been completed, but so far a total of 45,000 ghost workers who earned over N100billion had been uncovered from about 251 ministries, directorates and agencies. This singular reform has saved this country about N100billion (more than the annual budget of some states)
5) Change in EFCC leadership: the govt inherited an EFCC headed by Madam Waziri. Most Nigerians and the international community were uncomfortable with her credibility. The govt swung to action, removed her and brought back Lamorde, who is said to be the engine room of the then Nuhu Ribadu led EFCC.
6) Elimination of scans in fertilizer distribution: through a new system of fertilizer distribution, termed Growth Enhancement Scheme, which basically involves giving the fertilizers DIRECTLY to the farmers through the use of mobile phones, the govt saved a whopping N25billion in 2012.
7) Signing into law of the The Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2011 : This law canceled the Money Laundering Act, 2004 and makes comprehensive provisions to ban the financing of terrorism, and the laundering of the proceeds of crime or illegal acts.
This law accounts for the recent increase in the number of people caught at Airports trying to launder money abroad ( including the son of Jigawa state governor)
POINT 8. Reforms in disbursement of Petroleum Equalisation Fund: in the past, the petroleum equalisation fund for bridging of the prices of petroleum products across the country was disbursed manually. This gave room for massive fraud and manipulations. To block the leakages in the system, the govt this year migrated the disbursement of the fund fully to an electronic platform.
|Re: GEJ Vs Opposition: Major Hits And Misses by Sincere9gerian: 2:16pm On Mar 21, 2013|
9) Reduction of the scam in the fuel subsidy scheme: the govt saw the corruption in the fuel subsidy scheme and decided to end it once and for all in January 2012. Unfortunately, ethnic champions and failed politicians ceased the opportunity to engineer protests in some parts of the country. Consequently, the govt partially reversed the decision but the massive corruption in the system, as revealed by the several probes that followed, is now obvious to all.
Nonetheless, the govt did not relent. It went after the fuel subsidy thieves, through a painstaking investigation by the Aig lmoukhuede-led Presidential Committee. Many of the subsidy thieves are now having their days in court.
In addition, the number of fuel marketers involved in product importation in the fuel subsidy scheme have been reduced to a manageable level. The PPPRA first reduced the number of fuel importing firms from about 125 to 42 and then later to 39.
Also, payment for fuel subsidy now passes through additional layers of checks to ensure that scams are reduced to the barest minimum.
10) Reduction of scam in the pension scheme: the rottened system of corruption the govt inherited did not spare the pension scheme. Through the activities of the Pension reform task force and bio-metrics registration of eligible pensioneers, billions of public funds have been saved. The funds saved by the task force was confirmed by Okonjo-Iweala, who stated that "through the various biometric screening conducted between June 2010 and 2012, the Maina Task Force was able to save N74billion that would have been embezzled through the fraudulent activities of those in charge of paying out pensions". Not satisfied with that, the govt invited an international audit firm of great repute, the KPMG, to audit the federal pension system.
Notwithstanding the recent suspicious attack of the senate on the Maina led task force, courtesy of the activities of the task force, some pension thieves are currently undergoing prosecution.
