Clerverly: i don tire for nairaland sef, hence my reluctance to comment here these days!
You are not alone. Many posters who added real intellectual and analytical value to the forum are gone to be replaced by criminals, bigots and lying cretins who want us all , by hook or by crook, to give GEJ a second term he does not deserve. This is how the lies and brainwashing of "boy with no shoes" helped GEJ into Aso Rock first time around.
Today, his hardened disciples and minions are more desperate because they know the entire world today has rejected the tag "fresh air" and proclaimed it toxic, choking and rancid air. They are now reduced to stealing endorsements and lying about phantom 'achievements'.
May god save Nigeria because I personally know that GEJ is ready to spend the last kobo of the nation to remain in power. We must therefore brace ourselves for the assault of lies and propaganda to come from paid hacks who are ready to compromise the future of generations unborn for the crumbs GEJ drops to them from his table of billion naira food.
|Politics / Re: What Femi Falana Said About APC And Jonathan by Gbawe: 4:16pm|
Abi. Nigeria is really full of criminals determined to do anything to help a clearly failed leader stay in office to wreak more havoc on Nigerians. Femi Falana ko Jaja of opobo ni.
|Politics / Re: Why The Yorubas Won't Vote Buhari In 2015 by Gbawe: 3:59pm|
Save your bigoted breath. The Yorubas cannot be herded into blanket hatred of others just because that is what you wish to happen in the desperation to see the failed GEJ in Aso rock for 4 more years.
Why are your ilk never humble or respectful of others, their democratic choices and freewill? It is your kind who will be 'usurping' others you will take with you when Nigeria breaks up whereas you have never consulted those people to know what they want.
It is your sort who will start this ridiculous thread, when you spend all your time here maligning the Yorubas, wrongly and arrogantly predicting who the Yorubas will or will not vote for. All this online campaign to woo the SW, with GEJ and his hirelings doing same on the ground, will achieve nothing. The Yorubas will not succumb to scaremongering against Buhari and they will not persevere with a monumental failure (GEJ) even if your sort have no qualms clannishly doing such.
|Politics / Re: What Femi Falana Said About APC And Jonathan by Gbawe: 3:13pm|
Man mi, this is too much and I am thoroughly ashamed of some Nigerians and their criminal behaviour. This is open thievery and as bad as it can be. I really don't know why Seun condones this. Before, mods used to be fairly strict about demanding source of a quote or article and rightly so because the integrity of the forum matters !!!
Now the clannish and ethnocentric desperados of GEJ/PDP, sensing their messiah has lost the SW, just appear out of the woodwork to lie brazenly while their deception is indulged by the current set of Mods. Next they will say Wole Soyinka has announced he will vote for GEJ along with his entire family and his great grandchildren unborn. The same Falana these SE and SS bigots savaged and insulted ruthlessly when he led the fuel subsidy protest against GEJ is now the individual they want to portray, with blatant 419, as a supporter of GEJ. Next it will be Awolowo they will claim has endorsed GEJ from the grave. Shameless desperados with no morals or principles whatsoever.
|Politics / Re: What Femi Falana Said About APC And Jonathan by Gbawe: 3:05pm|
Look above to note I have shown that Martin Elechi, Governor of Ebonyi and another blind loyalist of GEJ, stated those things and not Femi Falana. This really is the heights of open 419 and I personally think a lot of Nigerians are shameless criminals.
|Politics / Re: What Femi Falana Said About APC And Jonathan by Gbawe: 2:47pm|
Seun you ought to take this crap seriously !!! This is now simply too much and you really need to have a stern word with your mods. The standard used to be that posters provide a source for quotes or articles attributed to others !!! These days anyone just come here, without any source whatsoever, to claim others have said what they may not have said or are unlikely to say. Is it Femi Falana who led the subsidy protest and called out GEJ for monumental corruption and cowardice, with how Jonathan could not fight the corrupt subsidy scammers and preferred to punish Nigerians with blanket subsidy removal, who will now be a praise-singer of GEJ today?
I remember when Mods used to demand a source and would then remove a thread if OP cannot comply. Bring that minimum level of sanity back abeg. These cretins are dumbing down your blog and , by default, making Nigerians seem poorly educated and unintelligent. This is the politics section and it should host sensible discussion and not be an arena of blatant lies, wild conjecture, slander and outright fallacy.
As I was fairly sure Falana is unlikely to have endorsed a President he considers corruption personified, I did some basic investigation which shows that Nairaland has now been taken over by shameless liars and propagandists determined to fraudulently steal, from respectable Nigerians, 'endorsement' GEJ never received from those people and is unlikely to ever receive.
The OP said Falana stated:
“When the airways collapsed, they did not rescue Nigeria. Jonathan revived the airports and allowed the private sectors to operate. And now, we have a total result,” he said. They did not come to rescue us. When the Nigerian railways collapsed, they did not rescue the railways until Jonathan revived the railway system.
Meanwhile, see below where I show it is Elechi , Governor of Ebonyi, that stated the above verbatim. Seun, this is shameless dishonesty. I know you are a GEJ fan but do not allow your forum be used like this. Warn your mods to be up and doing.
Elechi, who carpeted opposition parties in the country on their statement that they wanted to rescue Nigeria, stressed that PDP, under the leadership of Goodluck Jonathan has entirely revived all the sectors.
|Politics / Re: Fani-kayode Living Up To His Name, Obanikoro Working Against The People by Gbawe: 6:08pm On Apr 22|
This is what makes Jonathan dangerous in my opinion. He is another Odili but he should keep the empowerment of gangsterism to his region and that of those who support him blindly and clannishly. There are so many miscreant rejected through the ballot box who can now benefit from executive appointments that puts them back in position where they can breach the peace. This is a president determined to 'divide and conquer' by empowering the worst in Yoruba land so the SW, currently the most harmonised and cohesive region in NIgeria, can be as chaotic as everywhere else in the run up to 2015.
The roles the 'omo ales' of GEJ play will not be forgotten after GEJ is gone same as no one has forgotten the ignoble nature and ways of the OBJ gangsters of yesteryears. We will see what becomes of these greedy sort determined to sell-out for monetary gains when GEJ departs. Even Teslim Folarin who should be in jail for murder is shouting in favour of the benefactor who sprung him from jail and made charges disappear into thin air. Any President can make Fayose, Omisore, Gbenga Daniel, Alao Akala what he wants at the federal level but he should note that , in the SW, a new position does not whitewash your image or give you more clout if you have let the people down in the past or are known for villainy/thuggery/murder et al. Jonathan simply does not know the mindset and politics of the SW. All these desperado will chop GEJ's dollar and give him squat because they do not have the love or support of the people. Simple.
|Politics / Re: Message To President Jonathan And His Supporters by Gbawe: 3:16pm On Apr 22|
Another blatant lie I almost missed. So Yar Adua awarded the contract to Tompolo in 2011 from the grave? You fans of GEJ sha. Desperation and dishonesty personified. Anyway, the entire world now know that all you guys do and what you are about. All the way from GEJ at the top through his dishonest mouthpieces like Okupe, Abati, Maku, Omokri, Metuh et al down to clannish supporters like you, the uniform strategy is to lie and impotently blame others for the glaring failures and shocking decisions of the President.
Oil Theft: So Why was Tompolo Paid N15 Billion?
|Politics / Re: Message To President Jonathan And His Supporters by Gbawe: 3:03pm On Apr 22|
Bare-faced lies. Are we not talking about the same contract Okupe was busy justifying to the entire world in 2012 and before monumental oil theft was exposed? This is why I always warn Nairalanders about GEJ fans. You all have no qualms lying blatantly because you know it is rotten meat you are selling.
You will then come here trying to sell all manner of lies you cannot back with authoriative proof or any article that bears out your fibs. Below in 2012 Okupe, just like you are doing here, is using "crude oil production has jumped from 1.8mbpd to 2.6mbpd" lies to justify the senseless award of pipeline protection contracts to GEJ's boys i.e former militant warlord. Today oil theft is at it's highest level in memory. You guys are desperate sha. Gotta give you that. I always say it that it takes crooks to support crooks.

plaindealer: @ Topic. These worthless and incompetent go to Abuja and not only quickly eject their local responsibilities and allegiance to their own state, they turn into dead logs and clogs in their own state's wheel of progress. This is a useless civil servant from Lagos state with zero dividends benefits and dividends delivered on behalf of the people of his own state...
This is why Babs Ajayi speaks. Anyone who has followed his writing knows that the man is not into partisan politics. He is likely to blast Tinubu as he is GEJ. Yet when it concerns the recycling of all the area boys and miscreant the SW fought hard to rid itself of then the likes of Ajayi will talk. They all know GEJ's desperately nefarious plans too well. The part below is funny in a surreal manner and all too descriptive of what GEJ stands for. I mean, look at the insane decision to hand over pipeline protection conrtacts to glorified oil bunkerers i.e former militant warlords? Those who have eyes better see properly.
The truth is that if it was certain that Obanikoro was only doing what he was sent to do by Aso Rock, then he should be told that Jonathan will simply use him and then dump him, and the head employed in breaking the coconut will not partake in it. I wonder who put an area boy in charge of military men. Surprises are never in short supply in Nigeria, surprises of the very grotesque kind. Where else on this earth do you see a civilian leading military operations? I can only imagine Obanikoro in his agbada ordering the gun-tottering men in uniform to follow him, "Common, common, follow me, quick, quick, let's go." The we-will-show-them-who-we-are mentality has hindered many from seeing clearly and rubbished whatever claim they have to creativity and intelligence.
|Politics / Re: Fani-kayode Living Up To His Name, Obanikoro Working Against The People by Gbawe: 2:21pm On Apr 22|
The sad thing is that the twits are never from the SW but they will always be found hyperventilating on issues concerning the SW. Yet the pathetic creatures show no interest in discussing anything about their own regions which has tonnes of problems. Who does not know that they suffer from inferiority complex. Silly wannabes don't understand that it is those who envy or want to be in the position of others who discuss them non-stop.
@Topic. The goons of GEJ need to be watched. He can turn his own region, and that of those who follow him blindly, into gangster enclaves if he wants but the SW should tenaciously guard the new socio-political system it has achieved where it is refined men at the helm of affairs and not thugs and area boys as was the case not too long ago under the PDP.
|Politics / Re: Fani-kayode Living Up To His Name, Obanikoro Working Against The People by Gbawe: 12:56pm On Apr 22|
Ayekotoo1: It alleged that Minister of Police Affairs, Jelili Adesiyan, from Osun State and Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, from Lagos State are using their respective offices to cause repression and endanger the peace of the zone.
This is what every South-Westerner, determined to preserve the relative peace we have gained, must keep their eyes on. GEJ is exactly like OBJ with how he prefers to use ruthless, terrorist and criminal-minded politicians with no interest at all in ordinary Nigerians. I remember the dark days when my elder Sister who lived in Ibadan could not visit me in Lagos some times I am in Nigeria because Adedibu and NURTW were causing mayhem everywhere and ordinary folks had to stay indoors. No such thing since Ajimobi took over.
Jonathan's recycled criminals should be watched closely by all well-meaning South-Westerner and this is why apolitical Uncle Ajayi speaks here. Let GEJ continue to retrogressively make Boyloaf, Tompolo et al the power brokers in the SS but we reject that in the SW because we all remember the fight to get killers and thugs out so refined leaders and omoluabis could gain control and deliver the relative peace that ushers in progress and development.

Please ignore such folks. I do not write on NL for their kind. They quote me and seek my attention yet I do not know any of them or care to. If I am jobless, according to some olodos, then that is my own concern. Don't you think it is pointless responding to dimwit who associate joblessness with the time I started a thread?
This is how the poor education on offer in Nigeria leads these olodos to think. Everyone in the entire universe not asleep when they are must be jobless never mind time zone differences, self-employment that means I am in control of my own time, late night socialising et al. Please ignore these olodo zombies and let them think what they want. They are animals used to making assumptions and this is why ALUU lynching still goes on in Nigeria. They ignore the substantive issue to be chatting sh1te and discussing time of thread and other nonsense. I have no time for such small-minded f00ls.

KIRIJI: Jonathan keeps romancing with crooks and criminals in the southwest. Jonathans hencman in Ogun state is Buruji kashamu, an international fugitive and drug baron, a man on the FBI most wanted list
The fact is that Jonathan ought to be watched carefully by astute SW politicians and the people themselves. He is already supervising a retrogressive 'might is right' take over of his own region that will be an even bigger part 2 of the militant enslavement of the SS Odili began while the jobless, uncouth, politically unsophisticated and distracted twerps from that region are on Nairaland insulting others who are awake, aware and determined to prevent the criminalisation of their region that the PDP got away with in the past.
GEJ, as is proven beyond doubt, is someone who will fraternise with murderers, thugs, miscreants and area boys if doing such advances his selfish cause. I personally don't give a damn about others who are comfortable with and even supportive of their own oppressors and enslavers but I want the SW to keep evolving by rejecting throwbacks like Obanikoro, Omisore, Fayose, Adedibu et al. Ajayi's article is therefore in order as a wake up call.

SLIDE waxie: i am only incline to discuss about human beings today, and both FEMI and OBANIKORO didn't fall in such categories.
Indeed. Fani-Kayode, in my opinion, is just a loquacious attention seeker totally into feathering his own nest while Obanikoro, as Uncle Ajayi aptly put it, is nothing but an over-zealous "area boy" and hireling. We all know those are the sort GEJ is always keen to empower, associate with and use in every region of Nigeria.
|Politics / Re: Fani-kayode Living Up To His Name, Obanikoro Working Against The People by Gbawe: 5:01am On Apr 22|
I wonder who put an area boy in charge of military men.
The same ultra-Machiavellian President who put glorified oil bunkerers (former militant warlords) in charge of oil pipeline protection duties when Nigeria has a functional and expensively maintained Navy.
The same self-serving President who demanded Teslim Folarin be fully extricated from a murder charge so the Oyo politician could then be whisked to Abuja on one of GEJ's many airplanes to deliver the delegate votes to defeat Atiku in the 2010 PDP Presidential primaries.
The same parochial President who has sanctioned the recycling of two horrendous waste-of-space rejected by their own people (Fayose and Omisore) because of his own ambition to retain power by all means never mind the misery, murder and mayhem such thugs and "area boys" may visit on the polity.
The same callous President who has appointed the odious and 'stained' Adesiyan Minister of Police affairs all with an eye on retention of power beyond 2015 never mind the monsters being resurrected to achieve such and the lingering damage those evil men will do.
I tend to laugh when Nigerians say GEJ is a "good man" surrounded by "bad people" because it seems to me that Nigerians do not know how good men act. A good man is never one who puts Foxes in charge of the Chicken coop time and time again as Jonathan does.

Navicular: Dear op,, we all know the president, like his predecessors has failed us,, we all know he lacks the nerves to commandeer the ship of the most populous black nation in the world.. However, the opposition hasn't done enough to convince us that they'll be any better when their candidate eventually gets there. They've shown the lowest level of patriotism there is,, they abuse the person of the president without decorum, they mock the office of our number one citizen with reckless abandon, they've lately become so obsessed with occupying Aso villa, that they forget to address the fundamental issues with constructive criticism... Nigeria needs a change of leadership, but I'm afraid that saviour isn't in APC,, so until then, Gej has my vote...... God bless Nigeria,,,, God bless the CnC of the FR of Nigeria,, God bless us all!!.... We'll overcome!
With all due respect to your integrity, I put it you that Nigerians who malign the opposition, everytime the gross failings of the current Government are listed, are politically unsophisticated people. What do you propose we do? Endure with a Party that has failed spectacularly for 15 years and under three different Presidents? Albert Einstein said "t[i]he definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result[/i]".
Are people like you not indicating Nigerians are insane when you keep proclaiming an opposition you have never experienced as "failed" while you keep pledging support to GEJ and his Party that is a tried and tested 100% failure of 15 years. Sorry to say it but I can only view you as another who is ethnically devoted to GEJ to the point of myopia. This is the only reason you will reject an opposition you have never experienced to pledge allegiance to a certified and thoroughly proven failure. In nations without our ethno-religious division, they will try the opposition just to show the world they are are not insane and are not prepared to keep persevering with failure like lunatics. Political sophistication will lead citizens of such nation to understand that they can also vote out the opposition, at the earliest opportunity, if it does not perform. You guys should just come out and declare you ethnocentric backing for GEJ because that makes more sense to a child than this pathetic inanity of rejecting an opposition you are not prepared to give a chance to in preference for sticking with a proven failure of 15 years that has shown, time and time again, it is only capable of taking Nigeria backwards.
|Politics / Re: Message To President Jonathan And His Supporters by Gbawe: 5:51pm On Apr 21|
I have known you a while here as a sensible, balanced and intelligent poster. I would urge you to ignore ethnocentric cretins with reasoning ability lower than that of an Ape. It is sometimes expedient for a man to lie to others but a man becomes a worthelss fool when he lies to himself. To know the worthless fools here, you simply need to note how they will always avoid the very, very heavy evidence that directly shows GEJ is complicit in the ruination of Nigeria and the worsening of her problems. They will lie to themselves that "GEJ is the best since 1932" when the man is condemned worldwide by even non-Nigerians who have no ethnic or religious grievance against Jonathan.
These people, as the blindly indoctrinated creatures of hate they are, prefer to clannishly shout "GEJ till 2050" hollowly when sane minds only see failure that should not be indulged beyond 2015 and would certainly have been impeached in sane Nations. How many Presidents or National leaders worldwide do any of us see directly ignoring well-researched and universally proffered solutions to serious problems miring their nation in underdevelopment? Did we all not see GEJ bin the Ribadu petroleum task force report? What do the fans of GEJ have to say to that?
Otedola is a member of GEJ's Presidential economic team. He has suggested that Nigeria can defeat fuel subsidy scam completely if the nation simply engages foreign refineries directly and stop the practice of using middle men (marketers) who, with NNPC complicity, receive billions for fuel they have not even supplied !!!! Have we seen GEJ follow this simple advice? to even a child, is it not obvious that GEJ must be a beneficiary of subsidy scamming hence the reason he cannot move urgently and decisively to end these criminals defrauding Nigeria and heaping misery on ordinary Nigerians?
We could go on all day highlighting the deliberate inactions of GEJ making Nigeria worse and a gangster paradise for crooks, scammers, corruption barons, AGIPs and every amoral person looking to make a quick buck out of the misery of Nigerians. Let some continue to support this ultra-corrupt and highly destructive President blindly. What I know is that GEJ cannot be President forever. We will see where the clannish and ethnocentric supporters of GEJ will take their worthless noise when this abjectly poor leader, who is only sinking Nigeria, is shown the door.
|Politics / Re: 40% Reduction In Osun’s Federal Allocation Unjustifiable – Aregbesola by Gbawe: 12:34pm On Apr 20|
Why don't you show examples of this you have seen me guilty of ?
As far as "true federalism", the demand for it is as old as the hills. This current democracy, beginning in 1999, has not hosted leaders favourably disposed to working sincerely for "true federalism". This is why I believe Nigeria cannot begin making progress until the PDP is gone due to how the Party and it's policy makers believe in the inordinate concentration of power in the centre. By all means "clamour" for true federalism as much as you wish but I can assure you it will never happen under the PDP. You think GEJ can have ten airplanes under true federalism? The fact that GEJ is attempting to buy more planes is proof of the naivete of Nigerians who cannot understand that true federalism will remain an empty slogan under the PDP.
In regards to payment of salary, let us be realistic. Osun is a civil servant State , entirely dependent on allocation from the centre, thanks in no small part to the 7 years and 10 months rule of the PDP through Oyinlola. Oyinlola and his PDP SW compatriots like OGD and ALao-Akala showed a style of governance favouring a total dependence on the centre. Their Policies reflected this.
Whereas, the reality today is that the APC, though not perfect, provides a better system which can secure self-financing status for States in the long term. In OSun, IGR is increased and serious effort are afoot to diversify State income via leveraging on the competitive advantage of the State in areas such as tourism, Agriculture, et al. All this is geared towards a future where Osun can be self-financing. Such a future is not near at all. This is the reality.
I don't mean to patronise you but I must say that a true understanding of Governance means you cannot simplistically insinuate Osun ought to be self-sufficient at paying salaries in 3 years and 6 months Aregbe has led the State. Much as I despise the leadership of the PDP at the centre, you will never see me say what you say against a PDP Governor in relation to payment of salary because I know the reality of Nigeria to appreciate that any new Governor can craft a plan to aid self-financing to counter what they met on ground but such may take upwards of 20 years and can only be achieved with one administration after another adhering totally to the original template.

Please spare us your misguided rants.

Are those characters and the NDDC not the ones letting the ND down with their penchant for brazen corruption and Jet-set lifestyle instead of people-centred transformation? Charity begins at home. Your rant does not make sense as long as we remain in a federation where other legitimate federating units are fully and legally entitled to allocations accruing to them from income belonging to all Nigeria.
It was so before oil and will remain so after all even if ethnocentric and myopic elements like you do not get this very simple concept. Nigeria is not at all the clannishly protectionist hamlet you guys tout it to be. Deal with and accept that fact till our governance structure and association changes legally.

It is your sense of comprehension that is alarming and disappointing for your pretensions to erudition. Let me repeat my point if you miss it. You cannot begin talking about what Aregbe does or does not do when the thread is about the FG short-changing Nigerian States in a period awhen all conditions indicate Nigeria should be fiscally buoyant with a healthy 'rainy day' reserve.
Address that issue alone and stop dancing around evasively. Whatever you claim against Aregbe cannot detract from the fact that he has nothing to do with disbursement of allocation to Nigeria States which is what this thread is about !!!! In my experience on this forum, people do what you are doing when they support those currently under indictment. Go and open a thread about other side issues and stop the childish obduracy that sees you pretend you do not understand what others are saying..
|Politics / Re: Message To President Jonathan And His Supporters by Gbawe: 10:23am On Apr 20|
If he is failing, he should take responsibility for that failure rather than seek to divide Nigerians along partisan, tribal or religious lines.
This is what we keep telling the clannish and ethnocentric supporters of GEJ. I.e they must rise above bias to see GEJ for what he is. A thoroughly corrupt and grossly incompetent leader only interested in remaining President for as long as possible even as he is failing spectacularly in the position. GEJ will go in the end but what will remain is the nauseating taste in the mouth of most young Nigerians over the ethnocentric fervour they have seen the SE and SS display.
I don't think Nigeria will heal easily from the divisive and deliberate 'divide and conquer' antics of GEJ many from his region have embraced with revisionist zeal. Suddenly, everything is about not wanting "minority" and 'persecuted oil owner" GEJ to remain in power and not about the trillions GEJ and his buddies stole via subsidy scam. We are to forget about the missing $20 billion also and never mention the emptying of the ECA after GEJ became President. NNPC looting and shocking lack of transparency, when the parastatal demands full and total reform, is a no-go area. The Malabu scam must remain undiscussed history. Hideous 'ten airplane' governance profligacy and the deliberately bloated democracy GEJ fervently support ,making Nigeria unable to develop, is not important. We should flog Ribadu for painstakingly providing a report that could have revolutionised our oil sector with GEJ only deeming such a report fit for the dustbin.
We should never question the madness of handing pipeline protection contracts to militant warlord with the result being that Nigeria is now experiencing the highest level of oil theft in recent history. We should not ask why States allocation is dwindling and erratic in a period of consistent high oil price healthily above budget benchmark. We dare not raise issues about the abysmal level of corruption under GEJ. God forbid we mention pseudo-privatisation of the power sector now turning out to be deleterious crony-capitalism and age-old enrichments of AGIPs, as many of us predicted, only delivering greater darkness today. We must remain silent about the pension scam and how perpetrators of high-level scam in Nigeria are walking around freely. I could go on but the message is obvious to sensible Nigerians. We must never make this about the many unacceptable failings of GEJ according to his clannish supporters.
This is a President failing every Nigerian everywhere while appearing totally out of his debt in relations to the major problems of Nigeria which are all worsening. Yet we cannot expect his fanbase to see this because it is one feeding off ethno-religious bias, a persecution complex and the asinine notion anyone from an oil-producing region is somehow more authoritative or 'entitled' than other Nigerians. This is why fans of GEJ wish we hold him above reproach when his failings are too many to list and shocking to the extent foreign leaders are wading in with criticism of Jonathan. Is David Cameron Yoruba or George Bush a Fulani who wants to prevent GEJ from remaining President beyond 2015? We will see where all this ends but I am sure ethno-religious loathing will linger destructively and punitively beyond GEJ because some people have now shown other Nigerians that this is all they see and have to offer whereas the entire world beyond Nigeria sees a shockingly inept President placed way above his station. Ordinary Nigerians, from every corner of our Nation, are damned under GEJ.
The only Nigerians profiting from GEJ's presidency are scammers, crooks, militant warlord, recycled AGIPS like Otedola, Okupe et al, recylced failed politician like Obanikoro, Tukur et al, cronies of Government and all general miscreant linked to governance/partisan politics.

The wise guys here sat on the fence over the FFK issue because we have seen it all before. Never, especially in the case of Nigeria, react rashly to support/castigate anyone. Give it a bit of time and you will see the real character/motives of the person in question emerging. FFK's pretensions to pro-people heroism never fooled me. This is why I could never be bothered to say anything about the guy let alone support him even when he was running around vilifying the PDP while acting as if he singlehandedly created the APC.
When a glorified 'latecomer' and erstwhile MIA (missing in action) 'attache' individual is acting too gung-ho like FKK , then you should know that such a person is likely insincere. FFK, in my opinion, just wanted cheap publicity and a path back to political relevance. I think he may have gotten it by correctly gambling on how susceptible to 'Nollywood drama' Nigerians and their leaders are.
|Politics / Re: The Average Hausa/fulani Is A Potential Terrorist- Asari Dokubo's Wife by Gbawe: 8:38am On Apr 20|
This woman's statement is misguided and offensive but I am not surprised because everything is about the vacuous defence of GEJ for these ultra-clannish elements. Imagine a white person saying the average black person is a potential criminal and mugger? When a Kenyan says the average Nigerian is a fraudster it is this sort of woman who will fight Unclad to argue otherwise. This is why senseless people should not be given a public podium in ordered society as they will only use such to cause offence, raise tension, heat up the polity and heighten division.

Some clannish and ethnocentric Nigerians should bury their head in shame for supporting GEJ and the brazen level of thievery , the worst since 1999, he is supervising now making the entire world to lose patience and ask him to accounts for billions of dollars accruing to Nigeria. Oshiomhole raised the alarm a while back and what Aregbe says here is nothing new.
I used to think Bakare was being alarmist when he said GEJ's mission is to bankrupt Nigeria. I now believe the Pastor is 100% correct. How can anyone support the obvious looting highlighted below especially when, right before all our eyes, we saw the brazenly corrupt GEJ bin the Ribadu petroleum task force report that would have plugged many avenues of looting against Nigeria while bringing much more transparency and accountability to the oil sector. We all know why GEJ binned that report but ethnocentric bias will never let some folks understand that they, along with their generations unborn, will suffer too over the ultra-corrupt looting of the GEJ-led centre.
