|Politics / Re: Police Arrests Rivers LG Boss For Destroying Jonathans Billboard by Gbawe: 9:41am|
barcanista: As usual, the Police Force and its unprofessionalism and partisanship. Shame
This President has, more than any in recent memory, seriously bastardised our armed and security forces with his divisive and Machiavellian ways. Professionalism is now a word one cannot attach to very important Nigerian security offices anymore.
If it is not the spokeperson of The DSS acting like the town crier of the PDP, it is a whole General insanely conducting himself without dignity and mimicking an indisciplined recruit by trading allegation wildly and disgracefully. This President has simply made Nigeria a joke with his crude and desperate ways.

What is this confused person saying? Kindly continue reading and remaining mute if you have nothing sensible to add. As usual, those ravaged with insecurity will manage to mention Buhari, Tinubu, El Rufai et al over an issue that concerns their messiah alone.

focus7: they level of tyranny being displayed by Jonathan administration to perceived opposition is alarming.
Indeed. Any objective person will appreciate the insecurity driving the actions of a very disappointing and failed Peesident who now wants to cower all opposition voices against his attempt to retain power when this is seen, worldwide, as simply a terrible development for Nigeria.
Of all the problems of Nigeria we see over 60 security operatives deployed to tackle what is effectively hooligan behaviour? Where else in the world is this seen other than in militarised and failed States? The desperation of team GEJ is just beginning.
|Politics / Re: Police Arrests Rivers LG Boss For Destroying Jonathans Billboard by Gbawe: 9:10am|
Illiterate and imbecilic, almost to the point of retardation, is what you nuisance Jonathanians are. The man, according to the report, was arrested "at his Port Harcourt residence" and you are talking as if he accomodates a battallion in his house? Do you have any sense at all?
To any objective person looking at the trends currently, it is obvious GEJ and his backers are very jittery and scared of their own shadow. Hence the effort to silence opposition voices everywhere with overwhelming display of force which is never deployed when and where needed. I suggest you take your own advice and STFU.

Mumu, I can only suggest that objective Nairalanders inspect the archived posts of both of you so they note extremely clannish and bigoted minds.
|Politics / Re: Police Arrests Rivers LG Boss For Destroying Jonathans Billboard by Gbawe: 7:53am|
Omexonomy: A lot of people will soon die of jelousy over gej reelection bid.
Can you clannish bigots ever read, comprehend and speak in a moderately objective manner as even a child can do? Over 60 security operatives to arrest one man suspected of defacing GEJ election poster? With all the problem Nigeria is facing we are seeing this bullying, desperate and overwhelming show of insecurity-driven abuse of power and you are here talking crap about "reelection bid?
All I see are the desperate antics of a team very worried about failure and trying to cower everyone into backing a 'rejection bid'.

barcanista: . Bros I can't wait for the final verdict. My joy is that IBB and Gov Aliyu lost in their polling Units. This shows that the people of Niger State are ready for the change just like the Osun People prove once again that the change over their has come to stay. So sad Ekiti fell for stomach development!!!!
My brother, some of us are just watching silently. Of course there will always be the shakara and 'gra gra' stage from team GEJ. After all, they control the wealth of Nigeria and are willing to use it to buy everyone on board towards a 2015 'win'. In their eyes, money is everything and everyone has a price.
Yet I cannot understand how the clannish fans of GEJ in the South fail to understand the simple concept of how the average Northerner is very angry with this regime and unlikely to vote for it since such will obviously mean condemning themselves to more bombings, more insecurity and more insensitive demonisation of the "terrorist" North.
I think sheer hate and prejudice has eroded the empathy of Jonathanians which would ordinarily make them understand that the ordinary Northerner will very much feel neglected and abandoned by a President always playing politics while ordinary folks continue to die and face enslavement by terror. Asari-Dokubo and his prejudiced ilk yab the North non-stop and insensitively call the kidnapping of beloved young Northern girls a "scam". Online is even worse, with incessant attack against everything Northern while no attempt is made to spare or differentiate the average Northerner, who is a victim in it all, from "terrorist" slurs. Stereotyping of Islam and every Northerner as "evil religion" and "suicide bomber" respectively by fans of this Presidency is surely a vote winner. Of course it makes perfect sense for the North to reject the APC which is currently highly-maligned because the Party appears to accept the North as a legitimate part of Nigeria also needing inclusion and competent leadership rather than abandonment and neglect. Contrast that with the PDP busy dividing Nigeria along religious lines proclaiming others "Islamists" while touting itself the 'pious Christian choice' and inciting hatred against everything/everyone from the North. Be it religion, the people or even their Cattle and Tomato.
Yes it makes perfect sense the average Northerner will turn out in numbers to vote GEJ , or anyone connected with him politically, back in power for another four years of what they have put up with which must be very unpleasant. I can only imagine how average Northerners, as the main targets, must feel from my own experience as a south-westerner who has witnessed the ungracious prejudice and savage denigration the SW has received, for refusing to embrace an agenda of blind hatred and disenfranchisement of the North. Look at how they converged on Aregbesola, a man loved by his own people whether Christians or Moslems, to turn him into an Islamic "fundamentalist" simply because of the clannish love of GEJ that has made some people lose all sense of perspective, decency and an appreciation of limits. Bro, make we dey watch dey go.

kokoA: But when they were in control of no state at all they fielded Late. Ojukwu for presidency abi? Then they had "strength".. Now that they have 1 state, they suddenly lost the "strength" to field a presidential candidate My brother, stop justifying azzlicking.. I can't remember PDP begging APGA or going into agreement with them to support their candidate o but APGA carry PDP candidate for head like gala sote dey tin come dey fear PDP.. Lol.. PDP be like "Bros, abeg na you get dis candidate abi na us" lwkmd.
Don't mind the ignoramus. Some people just start from a position of bias and then say anything, however inane, to defend their prejudice. What is written below cannot be defended by anyone who understands partisan politics even minimally. If the highly unprincipled PDP is now chastising the APGA openly about it's sycophantic behaviour then it is obvious it is only unreasonable folks who will speak in defence of the APGA rather than acknowledge that the Party has indeed crossed the line, in relation to unbridled azzlicking and sycophancy, to the extent of grossly aberrant behaviour.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) to desist from using the logos of the APGA to campaign for President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term presidential election.
|Politics / Re: Stop Using APGA's Logo To Campaign For Jonathan, PDP Warns APGA by Gbawe: 10:02am On Aug 29|
So petty, effeminate and childish. They are talking about an entire political Party selling its soul, dignity and identity and you somehow find a way to attack Berem over that instead of facing the issue about the politically sordid, unprincipled and directionless behaviour of APGA? Do you think at all before lashing out immaturely whenever anything/anyone you support is criticised even correctly? Berem is right. The azzlicking and sycophancy is nauseating and a disgrace which embodies the lack of political maturity of Nigeria in comparison to others.
Lest you know it, political Parties, throughout the world, come to existence to offer a unique choice and not to be an extension, mouthpiece or 'feeder' unit of another Party. Cross-alliances happen worldwide but Paries always try to retain their own independence and identity. It is unheard of worldwide for a Party to be using its own platform to campaign for and promote another. APGA, to spare Nigeria the disgrace, should coalesce into the PDP and stop this undignified behaviour.
|Politics / Re: The BAD IMAGE Of Nigeria Is Caused By The Way Nigerians Present Nigeria by Gbawe: 9:37am On Aug 29|
Bro, it really is disappointing, very frustrating and highly saddening to see any Nigerian proffer the argument Samplegirl does because it implies we still have citizens who abet misrule due to how they do not understand the role of a leader and end up making excuses for leadership failure and mediocrity. As you stated, I just don't see the same type of thinking anywhere else in the world where polities, without excuses, expect leaders to deliver solutions as the leader promised he/she would !!! An electorate does not elect a leader only to say "we forgive you if the problems you said you can deliver solutions to have now proven to be beyond your capacity. You are free to carry on for another ten years dancing around our problems ".
Every leader takes office fully aware of the problems he/she stakes his leadership on delivering solutions to. Even as samplegirl does not appear to be aware of it, there is an implied contract of problem-solving performance between the electorate and the leader they voted in to deliver solutions to the headache of the electorate. A balanced, ambitious and politically sophisticated polity will not waste time rehashing the problems. Rather focus must be on current efforts to address the problems. When current efforts is currently very poor or, in our Country's case, leadership is even worsening the problems then citizens will 'bad mouth' Nigeria.
|Politics / Re: The BAD IMAGE Of Nigeria Is Caused By The Way Nigerians Present Nigeria by Gbawe: 9:43am On Aug 28|
Afroconnect: I think on a broader perspectives,all that you listed up there is as a result of the failed value system,as exhibited by the 'leaders' and politicians.
100% correct. The average Nigerian, as is the case worldwide, needs Nigeria to work, from the very top downward, so that they are also inspired to key into feeling and talking good about their nation plus doing all that is best in Nigeria's interest.
|Politics / Re: The BAD IMAGE Of Nigeria Is Caused By The Way Nigerians Present Nigeria by Gbawe: 9:40am On Aug 28|
BankuTilapia2: It doesnt take a minute to figure out a mumugerian from other Africans. A bunch of loud mouth madafuckersssss, bragging with nothing to show for apart from their usual giant of Africa and exhibiting their numerous talent such as fraud, ritual murders, arm robberies,
Sharap and get out of here. Let Nigerians discuss their issues with themselves because you clearly have nothing constructive to add aside your bad belle against us.
OP, It is a chicken or egg situation. I.e which one gave us the other. Do Nigerians just routinely love to 'bad mouth' Nigeria or is it that the hopelessness of the nation has turned many Nigerians into bitter cynics who have valid and justifiable reasons to always see and contemplate the worst? One of what I find most tragic about Nigeria today is how even the simplest things never work as they should. When the thinking and mentality of Nigerians are then bastardized as a result of this, to the extent they lash out negatively, we have this sort of thread where the fault is laid at the door of Nigerians and not the system creating unpatriotic and disillusioned citizens. For example, when David Cameron ensured the culprits of the last anti-social riot ,which thoroughly shamed the UK, were quickly brought to justice this reinforced the notion in the minds of Britons that law and order still prevails in their nation even if bad things happen. Britons will thus be predisposed to speaking proudly, optimistically and confidently about their Nation. Contrast with Nigeria where fuel subsidy scammers who could have crippled the Nation entirely continue to walk around freely and even officially associate with the President who should have ensured, ASAP, they were brought to justice and dealt with severely to serve as a deterrent to others.
You expect me or any other Nigerian to not speak bitterly about that openly bastardizing and hideously aberrant behaviour coming from the very top ? A lot of negatives goes on in the background in other Nations but it is in Nigeria that wrongdoing, indolence, mediocrity, warped morality, corruption, crime and what is negative is celebrated and even elevated openly and publicly. It is Nigeria, with moral code of conduct totally eroded, that leaders act like criminals and thus send out negative messages about 'acceptable behaviour' to the impressionable public. This is creating a society of warped, confused, morally dubious and frustrated Nigerians disconnected from the normal rules that guide how citizens relate with and love their nation.
Leadership is vital in that it must recognise its role of leading by example to (1) set down laudable standards others can emulate because followers tend to take inspiration (this could even be criminal behaviour as is the case with Nigeria) from mentors/leaders and (2) embrace selflessness to create a Nation its citizen can be proud of. That is missing for Nigeria. Most of the time average citizens cannot 'regenerate' themselves in the synergy existing between the dynamics of nationhood to be the both leaders and follower. Average citizens need effective leadership to become effective followers. Those who the average man/woman look up to should set standards and be the epitome of virtue and what is desirable. The opposite is the case for us and this, naturally, manifests in the 'badmouthing' conduct of Nigerians you highlight here.

|Politics / Re: Osoba And I Will Resolve Differences – Amosun by Gbawe: 6:48pm On Aug 27|
skyfall: Ogun people should be smart and not lose a shining light like Ibikunle Amosun. Little do they know that other states envy them.
This is the truth. Amosun, without doubt, is one of the top 5 performing Governors in Nigeria today. Those who are suffering under the yoke of misrule and leadership ineptitude would like nothing better than for Ogun to lose her performing Governor so "level go be the same". Like the sad losers spamming the forum with lies about Ogun State debt which Amosun actually even addresses here. Amosun's Mega City plans for Ogun are really special and capable of developing the State into one of Nigeria's premier destination. The Ogun light rail project, for example, is simply pivotal and the sort capable of transforming Ogun State drastically.

|Politics / Re: Osoba And I Will Resolve Differences – Amosun by Gbawe: 4:36pm On Aug 27|
Good development. Amosun is a performing Governor and as such needs more time to do even more and deliver on his master-plan for Ogun State. The APC in Ogun should close rank and rise above pettiness in the interest of doing what is best for the ordinary people of the State. I.e strengthening and keeping a performing Government in power for the benefit of the populace. Petty bickering and myopic egotism should be put aside for good.

|Politics / Re: Boko Haram To Get War Aircraft Soon by Gbawe: 2:29pm On Aug 27|
Nobleval: Nigerian leaders are clueless.
Yes but ordinary Nigerians themselves are even more clueless with how they cannot come together and decide, as others are able to do with ease elsewhere, when leadership is irretrievably failed and incapable of delivering solutions thus needing replacement. Sentimentality, bias and prejudice has to overcome everything to leave Nigerians fighting each other when it is their indolent and over-pampered leaders they should be holding to account.
|Politics / Re: Boko Haram To Get War Aircraft Soon by Gbawe: 1:58pm On Aug 27|
Thank you!!! The cannot appreciate that Nigerians are dying and the nation drawing closer to becoming Somalia while him and his ethnocentric co-travellers remain devoted to a leader the entire world, and not Gbawe alone, has proclaimed to be seriously incompetent and hopelessly out of his debt.
This is why I have no time or patience for his kind. They are dangerous with how they would rather see Nigeria burn, clannishly backing a failed 'brother', than support what is right for millions.
|Politics / Re: Boko Haram To Get War Aircraft Soon by Gbawe: 1:39pm On Aug 27|

I have nil eegard for your kind so kindly stay out of my way and you won't have a problem.

|Politics / Re: Boko Haram To Get War Aircraft Soon by Gbawe: 12:32pm On Aug 27|
Don't bother with that bigot. Everything begins and end for him with the blind defence of GEJ who is now universally deemed inept and incompetent over the handling of Boko Haram.
If Nigeria were a nation of people who think corretcly and prioritise appropriately then this failed Government would have been booted out long ago because the lives and security of Nigerians is far more valuable than to be sacrificed at the alter of bigotry and ethno-religious bias. The truth no honest person will deny is that GEJ is far, far out of his debt leading Nigeria in this very trying time.
|Politics / Re: Boko Haram To Get War Aircraft Soon by Gbawe: 11:29am On Aug 27|
M0r0n. You think I am an ethnocentric and sentimental waste of space like you who will blind himself to the obvious and is always prepared to lie to himself and others because of ethnic prejuidce and affiliation? I don't sugarcoat issues. I deal with reality. The reality being that this government, so far, has shown it is out of its debt and incapable of dealing with the menace of Boko Haram. It is ethnocentric bigots and emotionally immature folks like you who are the major problem with how you praise mediocrity and urge the rest of us to abide with it when, in serious Nation, issues will simply be about removing highly corrupt, failed and incapable hands and replacing such with leadership that can deliver results.
Abeg go and find an Igbo supremacy/Ojukwu/Biafra or "Chibok kidnapping is a scam" thread to rant on and stop disturbing a concerned Nigerian complaining, as the entire world does on our behalf also, against glaringly inept leadership costing innocent Nigerian lives and worsening an already grave situation with mindless corruption and self-serving indolence.
|Politics / Re: Boko Haram To Get War Aircraft Soon by Gbawe: 10:01am On Aug 27|
mandozhero: Boko Haram from their youtube display now has sophisticated weapons that even scare Nigerian Military. The way they got those weapons (e.g: APC, RPG, GPMG, assault rifles, etc) is the way they will soon get aircraft to fight Nigeria.
With our mix of hideously corruptly institutions and a totally inept and 'compromised' federal government, Boko Haram can really become a nightmare it has no business transforming into if Nigeria is even a half serious Nation. It is important for Nigerians to understand that terror groups do not conform to anyone's rules but their own. They will become whatever distracted and unserious political leadership allow them to be. History gives us many example of this.
|Politics / Re: Boko Haram To Get War Aircraft Soon by Gbawe: 9:47am On Aug 27|
Keep insulting the OP instead of growing up, taking adult responsibility for your future and discerning what truly matters. What has the OP said that is incorrect? Under GEJ we have a 'disinterested' and weak Government capable of letting Boko Haram become whatever the terror group aspires to.
When a well-sponsored terror group begin 'claiming' territory inside a sovereign nation then anything can happen. Call the OP whatever you want. It is clear you prefer to think and talk like a child while the OP is just an adult dealing with the reality of how things are changing for Nigeria.

With the PDP, they have led cluelessly for 15 years and things look even more bleak and more hopeless than ever. There is no hope for Nigeria while the ultra-corrupt, gradualist and reactionary PDP leads at the centre. 15 long, hard years is enough to convince any sane person of this.

omoajiri: I lived in Lagos and it was my tertiary education that took me to Ogun state. I gained admission into Olabisi Onabanjo university and for 8 consecutive years the then Gov. OGD couldnt conduct just 1 convocation due to the debts just that school owes talkless of the whole state.
Man mi, you tell the undiluted truth as obtains on the ground. I come from a big and highly dispersed traditional Ogun State family with many members in the UK. A lot of my older relatives and Uncles who have done well in the UK professionally ,heading back home, are shunning Lagos to be based in Ogun State even as many of them were Lagosian with Ogun State origin when they left Nigeria.
All of them consistently argue that Ogun State is the next big thing given the way Amosun is leading the State. No-brainer really. Proximity to Lagos, tonnes of opportunity, much cheaper real estate, lower operational business cost and , the icing on the cake, an administrator doing the hard work to make Ogun State attain its potentials. The diasporans are the hardest to convince because they are cynical, ultra-careful and pragmatic. If they have bought into what Amosun is doing then that tells a lot.
