AREGBESOLA: I can never leave Lagos and Lagos can never leave me
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 2:49am On Oct 04, 2011|
Here is a governor that doesn't live in his state, but prefers to leave in Lagos and run govt by email and telephone!
Rather than spend time developing his state, he wastes their time by bankrolling politics in Lagos and his is Tinubu's tool to disturb Fashola's good work in Lagos. Imagine hime even going so far as to dictate who should be commissioners in Lagos when he had none himself for almost a year after coming to power; he just couldn't be arsed with his own responsibilities.

Beaf I hope you have no problem with this because this is the third time u are bring out this articule.
Rochas visits lagos as well regularly and is trying to infulence the politics of the place and so those Amosun and others
why pick out aregbesola
although Aregbesola should not concentrate his energy on lagos too much, which he is not doing so carry on.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by alj_harem: 2:55am On Oct 04, 2011|
he was part of lagos politics before going to osun
ACN won all SW states apart from LP in ondo
do u expect him to leave lagos politics for good !!!
do you know that other politicals from ondo, lagos etc influence osun politics as well
WHY are you making it ur headache ??
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 2:58am On Oct 04, 2011|
What do you mean the 3rd time? This article was only published 10 hours ago, check by clicking the link. Why are you sweating?
The issue of Aregbesola being active in Lagos politics while abandoning his home state is one that is exercising minds across the country, and that is why the question keeps popping up.
How can a governor be that lackadaisical and irresponsible? Has Fashola ever asked for his help?
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by alj_harem: 3:05am On Oct 04, 2011|
Beaf:Beaf does fashola need to ask for help before others can help him achieve a better country ?
Was it not Rochas that provided free schools in the north and SW states for people ? That is a good heart and the north and SW governors did not ask for help but he did it.
We need to be critical here. ACN won 5 out of 6 SW states, do you not think it is best for all 5 governors + ondo to make plans for the region.
which ever way they do it, whether by political integration or so it is needed.
After 4-8 years then we can judge but now, I don't think you can say anything because PDP is worse.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 3:14am On Oct 04, 2011|
Kindly name one governor that is living in another state, bankrolling their politics, while paying his own state workers only a fraction of their wages by bank draft?
If he can't pay his own workers, what is he doing spending money in Lagos politics?
Aregbesola is bloody useless.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by alj_harem: 3:20am On Oct 04, 2011|
Can't think of any now but as I said, it is a regional thing and is no more about imaginary boundaries ie states
That beaf I can not answer, as I said before on this forum, all this political parties are the same in my eyes. I believe he should be able to pay the workers the minimum wage.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 5:10am On Oct 04, 2011|
Lolz. Fair enough.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by koruji(m): 5:45am On Oct 04, 2011|
Beaf lies with impunity where Aregbesola is concerned. He has settled the minimum wage issue in Osun State - the workers called off the strike already.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 6:37am On Oct 04, 2011|
My guy, words are cheap, but facts never lie.
Osun workers reject removal of allowances, salary payment with bank draft
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by koruji(m): 6:40am On Oct 04, 2011|
No, faxes never stay lie around.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by dayokanu(m): 6:43am On Oct 04, 2011|
Aregbesola should hhave renovated 10 primary schools with 934m,
Appointed a murderer as commisioner.
This is what a fellow Deltan had to say about BEAFs governor
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by dayokanu(m): 6:45am On Oct 04, 2011|
Another one says this
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 6:48am On Oct 04, 2011|
I couldn't give a gnats Bottom about Uduaghan. Fact is you sorry folk are trying very hard to dodge the topic of this thread. You will fail.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by dayokanu(m): 6:58am On Oct 04, 2011|
Can you believe this?
Beaf doesnt give a gnat Bottom about his own State, He doesnt care about his own people, cousins, family etc But he cares so much about people of Osun State who are hundreds of Kilometers away
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by ekt_bear: 7:02am On Oct 04, 2011|
Yorubaland is Yorubaland.
As Aregbe points out, these boundaries/divisions are artificial anyway.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 7:06am On Oct 04, 2011|
Would that be the excuse he has for disturbing Fashola and abandoning his own people?
When he didn't have commissioners after 9 months in office, he was engaging himself in battles with Fashola over who should be commissioners in Lagos.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by ekt_bear: 7:09am On Oct 04, 2011|
He isn't really answerable to you. If his people complain or have a problem, then we shall call him to order.
And by "we", I don't even mean Osun people alone. That is another arbitrary boundary. I am more closely related blood-wise and language-wise to Aregbesola than even many Osun State indigenes, heh. Despite being from the neighboring state.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by ekt_bear: 7:12am On Oct 04, 2011|
In a nutshell, it is not a good look when a man has more interest in a state/governor he has absolutely no stake in or connection to and shows zero interest in his own state and governor.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 7:14am On Oct 04, 2011|
I am very sure you missed both articles pasted on this page. His people are already quite bitter, its only the NL bell ringers that are trying in vain to put a sheen on total and incredible mediocrity.
My eyes are firmly locked on AregbeRASCAL. Mediocrity MUST be uprooted.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Gbawe: 8:14am On Oct 04, 2011|
@Ekt bear and Dayokanu.
Beaf, in case you have not noticed, is a Yoruba wannabe . Just check his signature. Despite not being from the region, he talks about SW issues 24/7 often speaking Yoruba while, self-admittedly, he has no time for his own State and the behaviour of her governor. Is it not the same as many , worldwide, are American wannabes always to be found talking about American issue in practised Yankee accent? Go to Ghanaweb.com to note they cannot go a day without talking about Nigerians, however trivial the topic, while most Nigerians don't even notice them. We all know what they say regarding those who talk about others always ala unrequited love. Wannabes jati-jati.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Demdem(m): 8:45am On Oct 04, 2011|
Accursed and his unsubstantiated lies. U go wound ooo.
As long as governance isnt affected in Osun and the electorate arent complaining, am ok with this. All reasonable Nigerians should encourage this. This is the kind of togetherness we all desire.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by arsenefc: 9:30am On Oct 04, 2011|
Very petty. Ignoring the message, attacking the messenger. This does nothing to change the issues. This only shows people who you really are. Arent you the same person always quick to bring up argumentum ad hominem whenever people attack your person? Isnt it hypocritical of you to be doing it now against Beaf, whose only crime is that he brought up a very valid point to be discussed, and here you are going to town on his "cooked up" negative characteristics. You cry blue murder when people talk about your corrupt uncle and how he has robbed the masses blind with his incompetence and association with Thiefnubu. Dont throw stones, if you live in a glass house they say.
The Osun government under Aregbesola, the avatar of liberal hope for at least when Oyin and his PDP goons were in government, has become hopelessly undemocratic, expensive, unfocused, poisoned by corruption and structurally snarled by in-party divisions and nepotism. The government, as Beaf convincingly describes it over the past few weeks, is not only expensive, "bloated" and all the rest. It has become a handmaid to the newest corporate power in town, Athiefnubu Company of Nigeria. The State house in Osogbo has become a hiring hall from which close allies from Lagos are selected and imposed on Osun residents for vastly lucrative government jobs, as well as an emergency cash reserve for Emperor Thifnubu's many known and unknown fronts
Beaf has raised a very valid point. Just address it. Aregbesola is one of the many things wrong with ACN. The elevation of money over substance. Aregbesola won the election in Osun in part because he was on ACN, but mostly due to the fact that the judgement that brought him to power was BROUGHT by Tinubu with dirty money. The source of which we all know too well.
No one knew who Aregbe was in Osun before he contested for governorship. And he won after JUST ONE TRY. AFTER JUST WON TRY. He defeated Omisore, the shon of the shoil and Ooni's favorite, and Akande, a one time Military Governor of Lagos. How is that possible?
Anyway, Beaf has raised a good point, he needs to focus on Osun issues 24/7. Actually, Osun should be on his mind 25/7/366. He is now at the helm in Osun, let him leave Alimosho alone for the natives of Alimosho. Osun people want his undiverted attention. Let him face is phocking business and stay in Osogbo instead of junketing around the world for no obvious reason or gain.
It is becoming clearer by the day that the people's faith in ACN's ability to better their lives is misplaced. The role of the so called "NL progressives and intellectuals" should not be to uphold or defend the incompetence and flagrancy and impunity and sense of entitlement of Aregbesola/ACN, but to speak to it, drastically, rationally, and decisively. But then again, that would be too much to ask from someone with his hand inside the cookie jar, but boldly looks up at you, firmly stating that his hand is in his pocket, not the jar.
Fashola has got Lagos, let Aregbe take care of business in Osun.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 10:03am On Oct 04, 2011|
Don't mind them, when they are caught pants down, they resort to ethnic bigotry and crudity.
I guess they are deeply ashamed of what their party has produced after all that "progressives" nonsense before the elections.
Look at the clown that is Aregbesola, how can a governor live in another state? Its never happened before in the country. And its not just that, he is fully involved in Lagos politics as well, with all the heavy costs involved. Just a couple of days ago, he was looking to borrow 50billion from the World Bank to fund his OYES programme, which is essentially youth cutting grass. Where in the World does anyone fund lawn mowing with 50billion? I can bet that every last penny of that money will be spent on Lagos states politics, but Oshun people will pay. Of course, Osun workers have not been paid either; they only got a fraction of their pay by bank draft.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Gbawe: 10:20am On Oct 04, 2011|
Arsenefc , Aka
You don't see how strange and unhealthy it is that Beaf has a constant hard-on for SW issues while his State of origin is currently very troubled . Does that make sense to you ? I.e a chap from Delta personally starting up to 5 threads a day on Aregbesola and the SW while he does not have the time or focus for occurrences in his own State. Do you see me failing to talk about issues concerning Lagos and Ogun (the two States I am affiliated with) while I focus , 24/7, on Abia State? My guy, find a job to do and stop obsessing about challenging Gbawe as if that is now your motivation in life. Don't become a wannabe like Beaf . Move on and start viewing issues objectively. Beaf , for too many reasons, deserves the way he is viewed and talked of . I did not just decide he is a total wannabe today. Look above to see that it is the same Beaf , from delta State, you defend that made it clear he does not care about Udaughan. Yet he follows Aregbesola around 24/7 and generally focuses on SW affairs . If that is not the conduct of a classic wannabe then you need to get a refund from those who taught you how to think.
I couldn't give a gnats Bottom about Uduaghan.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by arsenefc: 10:22am On Oct 04, 2011|
Seriousness aside. I think the is the funniest ish I have ever come across on NL. People just like to drop names shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Anyway, success they say has many fathers, sons, relatives. Funny how the same person is connected to Fayemi, Aregbesola, Tinubu, OBJ, met Soyinka, had dinner with Amosun, phocks Awolowo's wife, wrote Bola Ige's biography, had intellectual discussions with many VIPs. . . hmmmmmmmmm
Funny as hell. Me too, I am more closely related to Obama, blood-wise, skin color-wise, language wise, height wise, shoe size wise and missionary position wise ( we phock the same way), than even many Kenyans.
That said, anyone interested in taking ugly-looking Aregbesola to their state in
I rest my case!!!
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by ekt_bear: 10:45am On Oct 04, 2011|
There is no namedropping. I don't know the guy personally at all.
I'm making a statement about history, sub-ethnicity and migration, not about even me or him personally as individuals.
Wait a second. . .you grew up in Ife right? I'm a bit surprised, heh. I thought you'd know more about your neighbors in Ijesha than that.
Anyway, I won't say any more. I'd suggest you look a bit into the history of your neighbors, especially where some of them migrated to. Once you do that you'll see that my statement is 100% correct.
And here I was thinking you'd be someone who knows Yoruba history very well.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Gbawe: 10:49am On Oct 04, 2011|
That much is obvious to those committed to reading what others have written objectively. Alas, same cannot be said for Fstranger, Zstranger, Wizardofoz,
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by Beaf: 10:50am On Oct 04, 2011|
Let it pain you so much that you dodge the issue. Lol!
Dude, Uduaghan is your average Nigerian governor that sort of chugs along from day to day. There's nothing to follow about him. . . Aregbesola on the other hand? Phucking hell!!!!!
Where can one find another governor that can break his unusual records:
1. Governing Osun by email, while cooling off in Lagos.
2. Talking grand quixotisms and making nebulous speeches that are as psychedelic as magic mushrooms. Thats pure entertainment boy!
3. Spending enough estacode galivanting the World to pay Osun workers that he refuses to pay
4. Borrowing 50billion to cut grass
5. Planning to build roads in Lagos and Ogun
6. Living in Lagos and disturbing Fashola
7. Spending Oshun states money on Lagos politics
8. Spending only 3 days a month in Oshun (the rest in Lagos and abroad)
9. Imposing commissioners on Fashola when strangely, 9 months after coming into power himself, he had exactly ZERO.
10. Declaring that his routine employment of people to cut grass was successful govt policy. . . Cutting grass?
It would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic for the people of Osun. Should I continue, cos books can be written?
Dude, instead of crying your eyes out that Beaf is focused on him, why not make yourself useful and beg him to go back home from Lagos?
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by ekt_bear: 10:55am On Oct 04, 2011|
Bola Ige who you seem to be a big fan of.
Do you even know anything about the man's town?
Man! And here I was thinking that you who claim to be more Yoruba than others would know these things
The language spoken in his hometown is more similar to that spoken in mine than it is in yours. Men from my part of Ekiti have taken kingship in Ijeshaland. That should be enough to tell you how closely related we are on that border.
I am 100% stating fact when I say that I am more closely connected to Aregbesola by blood and by language than most in Osun State.
The same is even more true of your Bola Ige.
|Re: Aregbesola: I Can Never Leave Lagos And Lagos Can Never Leave Me by ekt_bear: 10:58am On Oct 04, 2011|
Fstranger, did you grow up in Osun State at all?
Or did you spend all your time in Lagos when you lived in Nigeria?
