Is simple,retire all the ministers, just bring German engineers to electrify Nigeria ,build affordable houses, and build industries to process our natural resources for export and earn billions of foreign exchange.
Is just lik hiring foreign coach to qualify for world cup. Black man is too self centered and greedy to use resources for common good,rather he just corner to self and expect no body to challenge him.
the ministers that made you president? Impeach your soul

Applying the Chinese Method, any one accused or cut in corrupt practices will be executed with immediate effect, including organizations, politicians occupying one political office or another.
Nass will never agree

Restructure and equip police with other armed forces. Execute all power and petrol cabals, repair the refineries, Ajeokuta steel company.
And you think they won't execute you too? Corruption can fight o
And they have $300b to fight with
How much do you have

Change the 1999 constitution,
President can't without legislative support

all corrupt lecturers of universities will undergoes firing squad. Any strike without purpose, the union leader will undergo long term jail. Reposition our health systems.
Which strike has been without purpose. Will you be happy to work for slave wages while some mumus are buying Bugatti

for any political appointment your children must attend Nigeria universities up to post graduate level
Against constitutional freedom of association
. Cancelled medical trip for all govt workers, political appointees and politicians. Increase minimum wages. drastically reduced politicians wages.

How
only Nass has such power
Reverse the sales of all disco companies.
Why
Socialism does not work

revamp Nigerian airways.
so it can crash again


Boost the agricultural sectors. Introduced war against indiscipline in the society, kidnapping and cultism is capital punishment (death sentence ). resource control most come into play. Support the manufacturing sector. Build new power stations with a minimum of 10000 MW each (SOLAR NORTH; HYDRO SOUTH; COAL EAST; THERMAL SOUTH )
With which money
Solar Is expensive and doesn't work at night
Hydro is damn slow



Our currency shall be double digit for the highest denomination i.e. removing double zeros from our fiat money. All traffic offenders shall pay fine + jail term (short term). All those that cause environmental pollution will go to short term jail.

Nigerians need an iron fist to rule them.
NIGERIA SHALL BE GREAT AGAIN.

All I see here is a bunch of young people who are no different from the old people leading our dear country to ruin with promises of "I will" but no idea of "HOW I will". " HOW",that is the thing Nigerians never ask their prospective leaders. They jubilate when some idiot says "I will ensure $1 becomes equal to 1 naira". As 2019 approaches,begin to ask how. Ask Muhammadu Buhari how (he has a heap of stinking campaign lies he is yet to or can't transform to reality),ask Fela Durotoye how (cos a nation is not built on motivational speaking), ask Atiku Abubakar (he has always been a part of the lying establishment from SDP,to PDP with Obasanjo,to APC) how they intend to carry out all their bloated promises.
so you rather just not do anything right?

Then bomb off National Assembly and House of Representatives.



If any young presidential candidate show up for 2019 election, won't Nigerian APC and PDP electorates votes against him for refusing to buy their votes with some chicken currency of from k200, k500, k1000, k1,500, k2000, k2,500
So electorate should vote for unknown individual camp he is a youth. ?
I see


Nigerian electorates are hypocrites during voting day selling their votes for corrupt government and start blaming others.
they sell to highest bidder
What if the youth enters and continue looting. At least they got chicken change from the devils they know instead of zero from the youth they don't know. Prove yourself worthy and Nigerians will collect the change but vote for you

Simple.

1. Give existing industrialist cheap loans and give them free reign to invest in power, health, industries.
2. Dash them all our government infrastructure, in exchange for 10% stock in each company.
3. Appoint no ministers. The permanent secretaries are experts in their field.

1. Use of foreign materials such as steel, bitumen etc will be cut to 20% for any infracstructural projects eg. Bridges, rail, Airports, Roads etc
Without your own local steel? Good luck


2. Use of foreign companies such as JB, CCECC etc for govermmemt project will be reduced to only highly specialized projects that we dont have capabilities for...and for such projects foreign labors will be zero, while foreign expatriate should not exceeed 40% of total experts

Collapsed buildings and eroding roads
Our engineers are all lazy thieves

3. Foeign workers shall not be hired for any work Nigerian can be trained or hired for
4. Duties and tarriff on imported goods where we have capacity for self sufficiency will be doubled

This hasn't solved rice problem in 20 years

5. Importation of expenssive foreign cars will be discouraged by increasing tarriff on New cars to 50-70% and extending allowable years on used cars to 20 years from 10 (why steal to buy 15 million new car when you can use your salary to buy ok camry pencil for 800k...if you want cheap new cars visit innosson and co)
6. Nigeria will stop selling unrefined oil
7. Products from refineries wil impact on agricultural and petrochemical industries
8. Extenssive National data base providing national numbers for every Nigerian...telecommunication companies, banks, Hospitals, Waec, Jamb and Nigeria army to to be engaged for the process (this will prevent to a certain extent the influence of local jingoist) every child born afterwards shall be required to be registered withing 2 months of birth
Why not immediately


9. Provision of basic social security (not money) for confirmed poor elderly

Somebody will still manipulate the contract
Simply force everyone to invest in pension fund of their choice
Leave market alone

10. Civil service will be made more engaging and functional, senior cadre offficers will have the priviledge of contesting for political position without having to resign
How will he do his job if he is campaigning for 6 months
So so Oga is not on seat ba


11. No senior civil servant shall spend more than 3 years in Abuja or other staff beyond 5 years
11. Renumeration for political officers (except elected executives president and govs) will be based on Nigeria Army salary scale. (SP-General, concillors- Seargeant)
12....and several others..but on a serious note most Nigerians are necessarily not concerned with any of these...we are mostly tribal and now religious warriors...so why not just dissolve the power to regions leavinv the feds with just 15% of revenue to take care of millitary and paramillitary and some other national and international issues while we try to migrate from presidential system to paliamentary...

I will dissolve the states and work directly with the 774 LGAs. I will also dissolve the senate and house of reps and make each of the 774 LGAs to send a single rep to a new senate and it will be fair such that each geo-political zone will send the same number of senators meaning some zones that have more LGAs will me joined maybe 2 or 3 together especially in the northwest. Also each local government will elect a chairman and councillors, I will then send allocation directly to the LGAs.
But the problem is those currently comfortable with the status quo ie Hausa Fulani's will never allow this. Unless a revolution or something.
they can be bribed
Only need a third to join Southern senators to get majority

Im sorry but i have no faith in most Nigerians to deliver on any mandate. In fact maybe we should even be recolonized (if there is such a word) so that we can at least have some things on ground like South Africa.

MIKOLOWISKA:

Without your own local steel? Good luck


The statement I made was embedded with the fact that we have capacity to produce sufficient steel if concerted effort can be directed into steel making infrastructures. Industrial revolution in most developed countries of today have been found to be majorly rely on the development of steel industry of each of the country. From US and Europeans in the in late 19th to early 20th century...Japan since the 30s, and Lastly China in recent years. About 70% of cost of structural infrastructures and machinery comes from steel..for instance, steel are the major component of refinery and pipelines...any infrastructural endeavor in the country without indigenous steel is tantamount to waste through shipping of scarce fund oversee. Nigeria can be self sufficient in steel. There are several iron ore deposit scattered all over the country and west Africa sub region, with Itakpe Kogi state boasting of a massive deposit both in quality and quantity. Ajaokuta if functional would have been one one of the largest steel plant in the world...you might want to say white elephant project...but new steel plant can be built/invested in from the scratch...Ajaokuta subsidiaries in Aladja and Osogbo are ready for work if production start today in Ajaokuta or any other blast furnace.



Collapsed buildings and eroding roads
Our engineers are all lazy thieves[/quote]

Our engineers are not lazy and they are not necessarily thieves. A lot of indigenous Nigeria construction companies are treated by the government exactly the way we treated our indigenous football coaches...bad pay not paid at the appropriate time. we offer our indigenous coaches that were trained in same training facilities as Europeans fractions (1/10) of what we offer foreign coaches and we still treat our own with disgust...That is exactly the fate of most indigenous government contractors. Most multinational companies Mobil, Chevron, Shell, JB, P&G, Breweries, MTN, Glo, Dangote group etc are being run by mostly Nigerian Engineers. There are several structures that were completed by indigenous company for instance Lagos Domestic was completed by Wale Bablakin's Bi-Courtney. Ofcourse indigenous company might not start building skyscrapers or bridges overnight, it comes with experience...It took China decades into their industrial revolution before they started to build Bridges, but they are now the King in bridge building. Meanwhile, Most of the so called eroding roads are built by foreign companies...


This hasn't solved rice problem in 20 years[/quote]

I wanted higher tariff on New Automobiles not because I ant us to start producing automobile but to drastically reduce the amount being shipped out of the economy as a result of luxury goods...which in most cases motivate embezzlement of government and company funds...if you want to steal to buy car at least let the money stay in the economy.

Why not immediately[/quote]

Some children might no be born in the hospitals, parents might not have access to registration facilities because of location...some communities might have to wait for registration officers etc. 2 months should be sufficient to for every parents have access to birth certificate and registration of their kids



Somebody will still manipulate the contract[/quote]

with efficient national data/social security number manipulations will be reduced to the barest minimal in about 15 years

Simply force everyone to invest in pension fund of their choice[/quote]

The social security help will be for elderly people that are helpless and maybe were not opportune to have a structured job that will allow them to have pension scheme...help will come in the form of food, and other necessities...mostly access from local producers

Leave market alone[/quote]

No country in the world practice pure market economy, even the US tax the working class to pay the lazy people and the elderly...this mostly come in the form of food stamp, cheap housing, free health services, subsidized telecoms, subsidized poatal service, subsidized air ticket, subsidized train services and social welfare security for the elderly...every 65 year old in the US have access to about 10% discount rate on everything they buy anywhere...If the father of market economy will not leave it to the market why should we? Don't forget or you need to realize that Government is different from Business

How will he do his job if he is campaigning for 6 months[/quote]

of course that can be easily navigated...venturing into politics must come with a price...for instance 6 months leave without pay is an option, such civil servant must be ready to relinquish his/her responsibilities during electioneering...the price ofcourse will be lost of position after return to service. The 3 and 5 years limit in Abuja I suggested is to disrupt allegiances and collabos

So so Oga is not on seat ba [/quote]

Re: How Would You Fix Nigeria If You Were The President? by Seahawk: 7:27am On Jan 03
I see the plan working
Bollinger:
If i were president, i would invoke martial law and suspend the constitution. I would ensure all arms of the security agencies are put through psychological and mental rehabilitation and anyone not fit for service or duty is fired. Then i would look into the welfare of the ones that are fit and qualified and ensure that their working conditions are at par with what exists internationally. I will then let them know that any whiff of corruption from them will result in them being fired and jailed. You must be wondering why the focus on security agencies? Well, after all that is done, i am going to release them into the society and forcibly make Nigerians do the right thing. I will make sure every single citizen has access to what the laws of the land are so there is no confusion. Then i'm going to use them to round up all the old corrupt politicians and do exactly what Rawlings did in Ghana. I will then pay special attention to the new generation being born so that their parents don't corrupt them. I will spend trillions to ensure that they get the best education and very minimal contact with their parents. I will do it the way the US does it. Make sure that every child is in school everyday and any child seen roaming the streets and the parent would pay for it dearly. I Know it will take decades to change the social psychology of the society but we have to start somewhere.

I will begin by clamouring for a new constitution that will enthrone true federalism and engender peaceful existence of the highly diversified nation such as ours.

Then I will ensure that we do away with the Senate which is the engine room of corrupt practices that has bedeviled our country since our return to democratic rule.

In addition to this, I will run a capitalist economy which will see to the complete privatization of all federal government asserts. All businesses, local or international, shall be regulated by various incorruptible and legitimate regulatory agencies so as to prevent inflation and high cost of living.

Furthermore, critical areas such as Education, Agriculture and Health care will be properly managed so as to encourage food production, research and better health for all citizens.

Moreover, I will review our policies that have encourage local production of commodities by awarding tax havens to such establishments as well as other economic benefits that will further see to the reduction in the cost of services or goods in Nigeria.

I will also ensure that the local government is empowered once again to affect the lives of the people at the grassroot level by funding that level of government adequately and providing them with the legal backing as prescribed by the constitution to function effectively.

Finally, I will revamp the judicial arm of government and her systems so as to restore her integrity, autonomy, supremacy and power to decide cases courageously without fear or favor. All institutions shall be strengthened under my rule. All forms of nepotism, ethnicity, religious bigotry, tribalism and cultural bias shall be fought against aggressively by my government.

God bless the people of Nigeria, God bless the federal republic of Nigeria, and God bless all Nairalanders.
Doing away with the Senate is giving too much power to the President.

I certainly don't know. But psychologically, we tend sweet talk anything we want. Politicians promise heaven and earth but don't deliver when they get to their elected position. Its not their fault. They're carried away by the popularity and monetary gain they get.
To answer your question well, if am to become the president, which I don't even pray for, I will do worse because I can't rule Nigeria. Am not downgrading myself. Its just the truth. Nigeria needs a stubborn but generous leader who understands the Nigerian needs and how to give them despite the hardship he/she faces.

wow that's nice but do you think privatisation benefits the common man. a corporation will always first look for profit and if the best way to get profit is at the expense of the common man then so be it. its even worse in Nigeria where it is so easy to subvert the institutions. if you think I'm lying just research why our mining sector is in the doldrums. in the area of education more educated people means an enlightened populace which would mean more people willing to resolve arguments by debates rather than force of arms but more importantly it will encourage innovations

most of their leaders are unimaginative and would rather want a quick and easy source of cash . do you know that the northern states have arable land for cotton and wheat combine this with the population and mineral potential of some states and you could have an economic powerhouse ( that's if the reports are not false). also I never said it was easy. in fact if there is one thing universal is that people would rather not pay tax no matter how little it is. the major problems I believe the north has is lack of education and religious tension/intolerance

I would simply campaign to make sure that at least a third of the legislature are like minded individuals. again the guy u re replying to made a damn good point striking indiscriminately without a purpose. while I was in secondary school some who were 3-4 yrs ahead had gone to the uni, I had graduated and these guys were still in uni(4 yr courses). our education system is still in the doldrums due to this and I can even make a case saying this has also affected our health care. what also gives doctors the right to go on strike(this is an essential service) hundreds if not thousands die anytime this medical personnel go on strike which is a gross violation of their Hippocratic oaths. we should stop the misinterpretation.

Indian can hardly manage its population due to its large size, terrain and uneducated rural dwellers who are the large contribution to its pop problem. China needed large pop to replace its loss in ww2 and later it got out of hand now they are managing it as best as possible.

a largely educated population will see the need to resolve disagreements with violence reduced and would also see the birth of innovations and inventions. do you realise that the ethnicity and religious tolerance we see at play can be largely attributed to the lack of education.

also why do you see the need to privatize everything. capitalism is all well and good in certain aspects but in others not so much. Nigeria is not yet advanced for the level of privatisation you are talking about as the institutions to checkmate excesses can easily be subvert . just research on our mining system and deals with Indians and Lebanese and you will realise so, if that is to much work for you look at our power sector. until you realise that privatization/capitalism is the corporation first the population a distant third then you will realise. in fact just look at America's slow transition to corporatocracy and then you will reject such a system anyway I am not advocating for full on government control but its control in some key and vital sectors

also taxation done wrongly can do what you say but if done correctly it can be used as an incentive to increase production.

what is undemocratic about party form.
You can't raise millions for form how will you raise billions for campaign or you think billboard and advert is Free.?



And your lawyers will be looking at them?



These laws already exist
Just no political will to enforce cos everyone is more interested in loot


Those are the guards you voted for via the bigwigs






a bad work man blames his tools
Party is party
Even one party state there are groups within the party
Hence primaries
Chinese rule through barrel of gun not votes
We already have virtual two party As well as multi party system
What we don't have are focused determined intelligent leaders that want developmen
Every is interested in loot only


let me put it this way. for example I want to become the governor of my state because I feel I can move it forward but there is a problem I do not have 2million to get a form where as our constitution says that I can vote or be voted for . is that not a way of locking large segments of the population away from one half of the democratic process. a party usually gets by from donations of its members and that's why they have an ideology to appeal to prospective members.

also how do I vote for the guards via big wigs?

wow China rules by the barrel of the gun yet its outpacing the bastion of democracy. and to your point about having those system I would say no we do not.

a good workman will be a bad workman if the tools are bad.

what I am saying and will continue to reiterate is that we need to find a system that will work for us.

let me put it this way. for example I want to become the governor of my state because I feel
Nobody cares what you feel
Just what you do.

I can move it forward but there is a problem I do not have 2million to get a form where as our constitution says that I can vote or be voted for
will you campaign or not
Full page newspaper ad is 1 million a day
You will advertise in ur to 15 publications weekly at least for 6 months that's already half a billio
If you can't raise 2 mill you're not leadership material


. is that not a way of locking large segments of the population away from one half of the democratic process.
Nobody was locked out
They are not worthy

a party usually gets by from donations of its members and that's why they have an ideology to appeal to prospective members.
So why don't you form Your Own party and give out form for free
Or get ppl to donate to you
You must be able to convince them that you're worth it


also how do I vote for the guards via big wigs?
You vote for president
President supervises guards
If you vote against bad guards big wigs will adjust
But most ppl don't care about guards they're only interest is rice and wrapper.


wow China rules by the barrel of the gun yet its outpacing the bastion of democracy.
because China becoming more capitalist
While America becoming more socialist(gun barrelly)

and to your point about having those system I would say no we do not.

a good workman will be a bad workman if the tools are bad.
you lie
Good workman will find a way
Borrow tools or fix tools



what I am saying and will continue to reiterate is that we need to find a system that will work for us.
[/quote]the system doesn't matter
The people do
We've tried all systems and failed. ALL

Indian can hardly manage its population due to its large size, terrain and uneducated rural dwellers who are the large contribution to its pop problem. China needed large pop to replace its loss in ww2 and later it got out of hand now they are managing it as best as possible.
Liberia has a small population
What's your point
Size doesn't matter Except maybe in war or voting
it's how you use it


a largely educated population will see the need to resolve disagreements with violence reduced
America is educated yet they settle everything with violence

and would also see the birth of innovations and inventions. do you realise that the ethnicity and religious tolerance we see at play can be largely attributed to the lack of education.
Agreed
Although it depends on the education
You can educate ppl to be racist
in fact only you can only educate ppl to become racist


also why do you see the need to privatize everything.
Name one govt business that is better than private
Nope efficient
Cheaper

capitalism is all well and good in certain aspects but in others not so much.

It is best in every supply and demand situation
Govt can only regulate and they don't even do that well
Nigeria is not yet advanced for the level of privatisation you are talking about as the institutions to checkmate excesses can easily be subvert .
Says who
Some failed politician or economic professors?
When will we be advanced
You don't get advanced by not starting
Private is better everytime, everytime


just research on our mining system and deals with Indians and Lebanese and you will realise so,
What is wrong with Indians and Lebanese
They are producing what govt couldn't do for 60 yrs
That's advantage of capitalism

if that is to much work for you look at our power sector. until you realise that privatization/

The distribution companies are working
Generation is working
Gas pipeline and transmission that is govt hands always has problem.
capitalism is the corporation first the population a distant third then you will realise.
The corporation provides good services in order to become first To survive
But govt doesn't even need ppl to survive

in fact just look at America's slow transition to corporatocracy
Corporatocracy is socialism not capitalism


[quote]and then you will reject such a system anyway I am not advocating for full on government control but its control in some key and vital sectors

also taxation done wrongly can do what you say but if done correctly it can be used as an incentive to increase production.[/govt will never tire of taxing you to buy expensive things we don't need. Capitalism reduces prices

let me tell you do you really think I would contest or plan to become president and change this country without stacking the deck in my favor.
Better

such has been tried in other nations and it ended either in civil war or the death of the leader. I would simply campaign to make sure that at least a third of the legislature are like minded individuals. again the guy u re replying to made a damn good point striking indiscriminately without a purpose.
So wanting a better salary or salary arrears while politicians are doing wedding in Dubai with their money is without a purpose?Hm!

while I was in secondary school some who were 3-4 yrs ahead had gone to the uni, I had graduated and these guys were still in uni(4 yr courses). our education system is still in the doldrums due to this

Our education is bad because we not willing to pay for it either out of pocket or voting against corrupt politicians and by collecting rice sharing or not voting at all
and I can even make a case saying this has also affected our health care. what also gives doctors the right to go on strike(this is an essential service) hundreds if not thousands die anytime this medical personnel go on strike which is a gross violation of their Hippocratic oaths.
Will Hippocratic oath pay doctors bills or buy mris
When the doctors die or leave the country then millions will die instead.

we should stop the misinterpretation.
under the right circumstances socialism can and will work and even endure for a long time. capitalism is not the be all and end all .
where has socialism worked. China is a capitalism nation now. Socialism killed about 100 million with hunger, ordinary hunger.

Cuba
North Korea
Where has socialism worked
Under what conditions
Human nature will never allow said conditions
