|Politics / Re: Corruption Is Massive Under Jonathan – US by fewj(m): 10:25am On Apr 23|
I rarely like to comment on political threads for my personal reasons, but here's my take on Fathai's comment:
Yes, Nigeria has a problem with corruption and it is the RESPONSIBILITY of every Nigerian and the govt to solve this problem. We do not need a saintly sermon from US before we know we need to get to work to solve the problem of corruption. After all the US is not immune from corruption. Who has been preaching to the US on the need to stop immoralities like gay marriages and homosexuality?
Yes the US is not immune to corruption, they've never said they were! Have you ever heard this statement "The borrower is subject to the lender"?.
Nigeria has a problem with corruption, you said that yourself, after 40yrs+ of gross corruption, Individuals (Nigerians and NON-Nigerians), Organizations(Local and International (NGOs)), Countries (Including the US) have deemed it fit to help us with our focus/direction. Why not? The Nigerian Government is obviously confused! The US, other Nations, Individuals and entities have a right to free speech and their opinions, anyone asking them to keep quite is acting like a bully just like boko haram.
Even if the target of completely eradicating illegal police check points have not been achieved, PROGRESS has been made
Who said progress has not been achieved, its just that it remains rampant!
Can someone who was dismissed be said to have gone "unpunished"? Mr Fathai, that is gross under punishment for the magnitude of the offence, he should be tried and imprisoned for aiding and abetting terrorism, aiding and abetting a wanted felon and treasonable felony.
It was unfortunate that Ibori was acquitted by a Nigeria court but that happened under previous regime. Again, the Judiciary is a SEPARATE arm of govt. Fortunately, the new Chief Justice of the Federation is taking steps to curb the impunity in the Judiciary. Recently, 3 Justices were sacked.
So if a crime is committed before a government takes office, that crime should be pardoned, forgiven or ignored? please let me know o, so I'll look for a way to steel N1 Billion just before the 2015 presidential election!!!
Also the 3 Justices were not sacked, they were retired and there's a big difference in both. For the sake of those who may not know, they were retired meaning they'll keep all their benefits such as security, pension, social/political recognition, official cars etc unlike if they were sacked, they would loose all these benefits. By the way, you made it look like the Judiciary is not a part of the government which my very own Chief Ebele is the head of!
The executive has done its part by bringing the suspected subsidy thieves to court. The rest is for the JUDICIARY. LOL
Correct me if am wrong, are you a member of PDP, I guess I should have asked that before replying you sef.
Its good you didn't say anything about Mr Bankole and his right hand man, Anyway, make una dey chop dey go, one dey na one day!
|Politics / Summary Of Amanpour's Interview With Dr Ngozi Okonjo-iweala by fewj(m): 3:06pm On Apr 17|
Africa's most populous nation, Nigeria, is full of promise. But fulfilling that promise is often a struggle.
Plagued by corruption and mismanagement, the resource-rich country has a poverty rate of over 50%.
Maternal mortality is shockingly high and more than half of Nigerians don't have access to electricity, according to the World Bank.
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is the country’s finance minister and the former World Bank official has been lauded as the reformer Nigeria needs.
But she too isn't immune from Nigeria's problems – her own mother was kidnapped for a terrifying five days before being released.
President Goodluck Jonathan promised to address corruption in the country. Nevertheless, a former governor – an ally of Jonathan – has been convicted of embezzling million in public funds and has since been pardoned.
“Nigeria does have a problem with corruption and so do many other countries,” Okonjo-Iweala told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an interview that aired Tuesday. “I don’t like the fact that when people mention the name Nigeria the next thing they mention is corruption.”
Technology could be the answer the problem, Okonjo-Iweala believes.
“We must build electronic platforms. We must distance people from the money. These things were recommended by the world bank and IMF,” she told Amanpour. “We are doing them.”
President Jonathan is calling for the judiciary, the legislative and the executive arm to meet together about this issue all together for the time first Okonjo-Iweala said.
“Because even if you catch somebody, if they go to courts and they are let off lightly the president can’t do anything about that. The judicial system also has to be strengthened,” she said.
“This is a country of 170 million people; 99.9 percent of them are honest, hard-working citizens who just want to get on with their lives,” Okonjo-Iweala said, proudly. “And they want a government that delivers for them.”
Oil should be Nigeria’s saving grace, but oil leakage causes a significant drain on the economy.
“We are still a poor country,” she admitted. “We can’t afford any leakage.”
On tap of that, there is immense oil theft, which Okonjo-Iweala puts at 150,000 barrels stolen a day. She compared the situation to Mexico, which sees tens of thousands of barrels stolen each day.
“We need them to treat this oil like stolen diamonds. The blood diamonds,” she said – calling on the international community for assistance. “Make it blood oil. Help us so those people don’t have a market to sell this stuff.”
Nigeria is also plagued by problems with its electrical grid.
When the country’s president last appeared on CNN, he told Amanpour, “That is one area that Nigerians are quite pleased with the government, that's a commitment to improve power. It's working. So if you are saying something different, I'm really surprised.”
That interview caused an uproar in Nigeria, with many of the county’s very active social media citizens taking to Twitter and Facebook to voice their frustrations with the power grid and President Jonathan’s comments.
Okonjo-Iweala said the power problems all come down to previous government’s lack of investment.
“If you've neglected a sector for that long, you've not invested, you've not even maintained your basic facilities, it's not going to happen that fast. It takes time,” she said.
While Nigerians often complain of power outages – telling CNN they often have to use generators to watch the news channel – Okonjo-Iweala maintained there has been improvement.
“That month, when you interviewed the president," she said, referring to Amanpour's previous interview of Jonathan, "the polls showed, independently, scientifically that they are in technical partnership with dialogue. That 54 percent of Nigerians felt there was some improvement,” she told Amanpour.
“Nigeria is not the only country. Almost every developing country has a problem with power, as you know. India has it. South Africa has it. South Africa is far better off because they've invested much more.
But many developing countries, even China, they are struggling with keeping up with infrastructure,” she said.
Okonjo-Iweala said that the administration has accepted that the government is not the best place to run the power sector.
“If we want this country and this economy to do better, we just have to get out. And Nigeria is pursuing one of the most sweeping privatization programs in any country in the world,” she said. “We are selling off everything.”
That said, the lights even went out on President Jonathan during a speech he gave a speech in front of cameras just this past Easter day.

Critiquing is not just about saying all the negative things about a thing, it also involves saying some of the good, identifying quaility parts, mediocre parts and poor parts, if you're critiquing a site and all you see is the wrongs and misappropriations, you're a bad critique, your criticism is incomplete.

When you say you people, who are you referring to? It's only folks who haven't stayed in crisis affected areas that can say things like that.
As for the policemen who died in action, their families are supposed to be compensated by the police force, they're also supposed to receive pension benefits, Am pretty sure you're aware someone
|Politics / Re: FG To Pay N37bn Compensation For Odi’s Invasion by fewj(m): 8:11pm On Feb 20|
You still don't get it do you? Militants don't stay in one place, they commit their crimes and leave, when the army comes, their wrath is on those who didn't participate and even though some of them may be aware of criminal acts done in their neighborhood, they may have been helpless to stop it and helpless to evade the military reprisal. I still remember doing frog jumps on numerous occasions during the warri crisis on my way back from school for no apparent reason, there were those who were also shot without reason (When the army hears gun fire from a distance, without seeing who is shooting, they start shooting too without seeing who they're shooting at as well #Terrible).
Understand the situation of things before you point fingers! What's the point anyway, that money will never be paid! NEVER!

Bubble bursting mode activated: You used a wordpress theme called wricker, and from what i see, the changes you made made depreciated the looks of the site when compared to its original theme looks.
Disadvantages of using an Existing Theme
1. You can't really brag about it, If you do, there's no telling who may just know the truth
2. You may never get to know more than you currently know now
3. Even some clients may get to know you're a theme guy
I've adapted @Dual_core's sternness here, I hope this helps you get the message hard.
