|Politics / Re: Fayose Shuts Speaker, Others’ Fuel Stations by Gbawe: 7:44am|
Sadly, this is the only way Fayose and others in the PDP know how to play politics. This is why they were voted out of the SW. To get into office, with all that is facing the State, and begin closing petrol station belonging to opposition politicians shows what is to come from Fayose. Not even a week and he is power drunk already yet same man will lie flat before men of God to say he will sin no more. Ekiti folks, hope you will not seriously regret your choice as many Nigerians deeply regret voting for GEJ today.
|Politics / Re: #TeamBuhari by Gbawe: 9:11am On Oct 22|
Ignore the children of the corrupt messiah(GEJ) on this thread. Do not give them what they crave desperately which is your attention. If they had a record to sell GEJ on they would be opening countless threads to do this instead of desperately trying to present Buhari as a man Nigeria must reject.
We should join focus to uphold the resolve of promoting GMB till the APC primaries and not entertain distractions. #Team Buhari backing the real change.
|Politics / Re: I Wont Vote APC For Presidency Because: by Gbawe: 7:40pm On Oct 21|
Absolutely brilliant !!! Why are so many TANdroids and Jonathanians focusing their effort on telling the world why they will not vote for others? Simply go to the polling booth and cast your vote. Spare us the histrionics. Why make a show of telling us why you will not be voting for a Party when you should simply concentrate on telling us why you are voting for your choice? Real fear has gripped the TANdroid army. They are 'malfunctioning' already.
|Politics / Re: Silence Of Jonathanins: Kudos To Nairaland A.P.C by Gbawe: 5:57pm On Oct 21|
Bro, remember I told you guys it was initial gra gra they can never sustain because their pro-GEJ trolling antics would eventually be overtaken by events and a fightback sure to come ? Look, this is even only the beginning. No need to say too much. Some will realize that others are not playing around. When they started bullying Amaechi and initiated their '16 is greater than 19' abracadabra and dirty impeachment plot, I said here it was an exercise in futility.
GEJ is a a very shallow leader with an ultra-parochial outlook. He has never, at any time, deferred to the notion that Nigeria is much bigger than him and his ambition. The initial gra gra of TANdroids on NL was totally predictable because it seemed that GEJ was 'overcoming'. I stated then even to their oga (Insincere9gerian) that this is totally expected and must not be taken to mean anything. After all the Presidency is a powerful office that wields enormous influence and patronage. Nonetheless I warned of the inevitable "fightback" from a political establishment fed up of GEJ. Many, naturally, must keep their card close to their chest because GEJ has shown he is always ready and fully committed to using the power of his office to persecute opposition to his ambition. Other will now, with the elections virtually upon us, begin to show the cards they were hiding very well. Let us all relax and enjoy the ride. We are only at the beginning of the blockbuster film.

Indeed but Nigeria is greater than this accidental leader and his deluded followers. GEJ will be voted out so that Nigeria can begin to function effectively as other Nations do.
|Politics / Re: Message For Jonathan: ‘Nigeria Needs A Uniter, Not A Divider’…a Must Read by Gbawe: 3:35pm On Oct 21|
Precisely. The article is saying exactly what you concluded. How do we give more time to a man who, instead of delivering good governance, specialises in highlighting our difference as a way to divide Nigerians and set them against each other? I have noticed the massive difference from when I joined NL in 2009 to the GEJ years where ethnic and religious intolerance seem a way of life on NL rather than a vile and abhorrent development to be condemned strongly. Today, on the ground, things are hardly discussed without ethnicity and religion being dragged into issues bellicosely. The best political leaders, who are naturally effective and deliberate , tend to de-emphasize the issues that divide and polarise society. This is because people are effective and productive when they focus on what develops society rather than on each other.
Good leaders focus on bringing out the best in those they lead with exemplary personal conduct which encourages ordinary folks to aspire to lofty ideals of human behaviour and interaction. Accidental and sit-tight leaders, often identified with a desperation to hold on to power even when they are not using it to benefit anyone, will embrace any tactics, however vile, to promote the sort of disunity and chaos that makes it difficult for a polity to speak with one voice and rid itself of misrule. GEJ is now a known entity and his divisive tactics are properly identified. Along with his hideous misrule and corruption, it is obvious Nigeria needs change.

|Politics / Re: The Popularity Of GEJ Is Dwindling On Nairaland. Why? by Gbawe: 11:58am On Oct 21|
What hardcore Jonathanians or TANdroids cannot accept, because they support GEJ due to ethnic jingoism and religious bias, is that neutral Nigerians who simply want a better Nigeria have turned their back on the same GEJ they supported passionately in 2011. GEJ has seriously disappointed the Nigerians who are not over-zealously interested in partisan political yet forced themselves to overcome apathy and vote for him in hope that he will be the change Nigeria want.
Jonathan has turned out to be worse than virtually all our past leaders and this is what is responsible for his dwindling popularity. Naturally citizens 'take stock' when elections are ahead. They know they will have to make electoral choices shortly.This is a time the electorate will display warmth towards leaders who have done well and will be gearing up to go to the polls and return such leaders to power to continue their good work. This is also the time the electorate will be determined to vote out failed leaders who have let them down. GEJ is now firmly in the latter category i.e a failed leader. He will therefore be unpopular haven lost the goodwill of the electorate as tried, tested and failed. Many voters now have no time for him and are only focused on the date they can go to their respective polling booths to remove him.
|Politics / Re: 3Yrs of Fuel Subsidy Removal: The Deception of The Government of Jonathan by Gbawe: 11:09am On Oct 21|
Bro, it is now universal knowledge that SURE-P is SCAM-P in reality. This is why other world leaders resent GEJ immensely. They see a leader committing all manner of brazen scams against his own nation, and destroying the future of millions, simply so him and a few cronies and affiliates of government can continue to amass stupendous wealth at the expense of Nigeria.
If it is not fuel subsidy scam then it is the fraud called SURE-P or disgusting pension scam robbing the elderly who have paid their dues. We then move all the way to the nationally destructive 419 crony capitalism deceptively packaged as power privatisation yet only able to deliver darkness. This is merely a set of glorified fraudsters and common scammers parading as "leaders". Disgraceful.
|Politics / Re: Why I Want Buhari To Rule Nigeria by Gbawe: 9:11am On Oct 21|
Indeed. This is a leader other leaders despise deeply because he embarrasses the word "leader" with his actions and inactions that make it very obvious he is a big part of the biggest problems facing his nation.
|Politics / Re: Why I Want Buhari To Rule Nigeria by Gbawe: 9:07am On Oct 21|
Bro, they are merely wasting their own time. Despite our back and forth daily on Nairaland, Nigerians are passionately in the mood for change on the ground and Buhari will be the beneficiary of that strong desire for change.
Same way TANdroids love to tell us GMB is the wrong candidate for the APC is how I now tell them that GEJ is a self - defeatist choice for the ultra-corrupt leaders of the PDP only thinking of what is best for themselves rather than for Nigeria. Many are willing to look beyond the flaws of GMB and vote APC because GEJ is now a totally known entity who represents everything that has destroyed and continues to destroy Nigeria. How can Nigerians, if they are sane voters like others worldwide, hand more time to someone now firmly confirmed to be part of the system of corruption, cronyism and misrule destroying Nigeria?

Political analysis is clearly not your thing otherwise you will know Tambuwal is not coming to the APC to vie for a position he is not interested in. I am surprised you guys cannot see the obvious. Then again you are all TANdroids only programmed to worship and follow GEJ blindly but never to think independently.

|Politics / Re: What Collateral Did Buhari Used In Obtaining 27m Loan From A Bank? by Gbawe: 6:10pm On Oct 20|
I am a refined person who lives and let live. If I can have a loan privately that I am not obligated to discuss with you or anyone else, then why should GEJ's private loan with a private bank concern me? If he defaults, it will be the private bank that will bear the brunt not me or Nigeria. Unlike some folks here, I know to leave sentiments out of things. To that end I have no problem respecting the privacy of others they are fully entitled to. Nothing concerns you or anyone else with the private loan Buhari collected from a private bank.
|Politics / Re: What Collateral Did Buhari Used In Obtaining 27m Loan From A Bank? by Gbawe: 5:53pm On Oct 20|
Highly incongruous and inane comparison. Central banks do not disburse loans to individuals. GEJ can therefore not have any type of loan from the CBN. Nigeria can and that would be fine. Did Buhari go to the CBN (lenders to Government and other banks) for a loan or did he go to a Private bank which is allowed to provide unsecured loans to its customers which includes private individuals like GMB?
|Politics / Re: What Collateral Did Buhari Used In Obtaining 27m Loan From A Bank? by Gbawe: 5:44pm On Oct 20|
ALUU savages the lot of them. Entirely private matter between Buhari and his bank. Yet trust some Nigerians never to know their place while they go around making themselves into an obtrusive nuisance to others.
|Politics / Re: What Collateral Did Buhari Used In Obtaining 27m Loan From A Bank? by Gbawe: 5:25pm On Oct 20|
Bro, you do not even have to make this point to these ignorant TANdroids and mischief-making Jonathanians. The bank in question handle the financial affairs of GMB on behalf of GMB and not on behalf of Nairalanders or other Nigerians. The bank will be privy to the real financial standing of Buhari we all are not and that they are not at liberty to disclose to ordinary Nigerians.
If the bank, based on the information available to themas Buhari's banker, are happy to take the risk and offer GMB an unsecured private loan then what is all the noise about? This is why we still have ALUU-style summary execution of innocent Nigerians going on in our Nation i.e the sheer obtrusive savagery and malevolent ameboism of many Nigerians. I simply don't know how it is a concern for Nigerians that Buhari obtained a personal loan let alone some try to insinuate he has done wrong doing so. The heights of unrefined and uncouth behaviour.
|Politics / Re: What Collateral Did Buhari Used In Obtaining 27m Loan From A Bank? by Gbawe: 4:57pm On Oct 20|
Bro, don't let these charlatans fool you into conceding what is not even the case. They do not know the sort of loan Buhari obtained and the terms. Rightly so because Buhari does not have to explain such to anyone even as a lot of Nigerians like to overstep their boundaries and disregard limts of intrusion into the affair of others. Talks of 'collateral' is entirely misplaced because it stands to reason that Buhari obtained an unsecured loan. Worldwide, it continues to remain the case that a collateral is not required for an unsecured loan. Should Buhari then have to come out to explain the terms of his personal loan to Nigerians? Which of us is obliged to do this? Abeg some folks could go and sleep if they are jobless. This desperate attempt to paint Buhari black, with ignorant and pedestrian insinuations, is amusing to say the least.
DEFINITION OF 'UNSECURED LOAN'
|Politics / Re: What Collateral Did Buhari Used In Obtaining 27m Loan From A Bank? by Gbawe: 4:51pm On Oct 20|
Thank you. Discretionary approval of loans, without the demand for a collateral ,is still a valid banking practice worldwide. Yet we can trust some Nigerians to display their penchant for fraudulent behaviour which sees them arguing that the earth is flat and that babies come out of the human nose as long as such inanities fit with the agenda they are pursuing.
Is it not ridiculous some are trying to indict Buhari of wrongdoing when they do not even know, minimally, if this is an unsecured loan? Do some people appreciate that , universally, a collateral is not required for an unsecured loan? It is just troubling how some folks fail to see that they are portraying Nigerians as unintelligent m0r0ns with their attempt to establish a point which is not valid to begin with.
|Politics / Re: What Collateral Did Buhari Used In Obtaining 27m Loan From A Bank? by Gbawe: 4:10pm On Oct 20|
Don't mind them. These TANDroids are ridiculously pedestrian in thinking. When did affairs of private banks serving their customers now become an issue for the Jonathanian amebos to put their ignorant mouth into? Lest some people know it , discretionary waiving of collateral requirement is still an acceptable practice in banking. I guess every supporter of GEJ has now become the bank manger of Buhari's bank.
In every nation of the world, where there is a credit checking system in place, loans are given without collateral based on the good credit score of borrowers and ability to meet repayment. In Nigeria there is no formal system of credit scoring or credit checking in place and banks can use their discretion to honour loan request from their reputable and long-standing customers. I am just appalled by Nigerians and their penchant for mindless hatred of others to the extent they will stand logic on its head trying to look for infringements and crimes that have not been committed.

|Politics / Re: Buhari Nomination Form Loan: Three Things I Have Learnt About Buhari by Gbawe: 1:51pm On Oct 19|
"Stakeholder" refers to roles of everyone at all levels where they are required to play a part and are entitled to do so as relevant participants. It is only because we tend to be sentimental in Nigeria and that is why we do not see or acknowledge our responsibilities, roles and limits regarding encroaching in what is beyond our remit. Come the general election, you will be a stakeholder in who becomes your President and your duty will be to go out and vote. Will you allow any Party boss to demand you must vote for so and so candidate? You are not and never allowed to threaten and blackmail a political Party over the candidate they should field same as no one can bully you as per who to vote for. It is not done anywhere else in the world. It is Party stakeholders who choose Party candidates while the electorate go out to vote.
Do you see the supporters of the Labour and conservative Parties in the UK telling, nay demanding, their respective Parties must choose certain candidates to contest the general election or they vote for another Party? What about the democrats and republicans in the USA?
Please vote GEJ and the PDP because you cannot blackmail others to do your bidding in relation to a process the constitution of a Party does not allow you to have a say in let alone be making demands over. Your position is not tenable nor reasonable. I for example will be disappointed if the APC field Atiku but I will never threaten to vote for the PDP because there are still so many other influential offices to be fought for (Governorship, legislative et al) in consonance with my belief that the APC is the Party to deliver good leadership across all levels. The issue at hand is simple. You won't be allowed to tell the APC who to field. If their eventual choice is one you do not like then vote the PDP.
|Politics / Re: Buhari Seems To Have Taken Over by Gbawe: 1:09pm On Oct 19|
My brother, remember the wise words of Obama?
‘If You Don’t Have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.’
GEJ fans know and totally accept that their messiah has zero record of performance to fall back on let alone use as a 2015 election selling point. They are thus, as Obama surmised, desperate folks eager to portray Buhari, with all manners of lie and scaremongering, as someone Nigerians should run away from.
In my own little way, I will do what I can to make influential APC leaders see the need to use Obama's very wise observation as a motto to promote Buhari. The message will resonate with Nigerians that the private jet elite GEJ has created single-handedly and the ultra-corrupt oligarchy he empowered have nothing to sell GEJ with, because he is a universally acclaimed failure, and are thus left with no options other than to embrace the desperate tactics of trying to present Buhari as someone Nigerians should fear.
To reasonable Nigerians, it will soon become obvious that a hardened criminal fears nothing above a dedicated and focused policeman/lawman determined to bring him down. Ponder why Al Capone feared and worried about his eventual nemesis , Elliot Ness, so much and this gives a clue why the corrupt pals of GEJ are having sleepless nights about a GMB who can now compete under a strong, influential and well-supported platform. This is why those who want Nigeria to remain failed, so they can continue to profit privately from the misery of the masses, fear GMB and are determined to demonize him.
|Politics / Re: Buhari Nomination Form Loan: Three Things I Have Learnt About Buhari by Gbawe: 10:42am On Oct 19|
That is not a problem. The APC stakeholders will choose who they think are the best duo to contest the general election. If you do not approve of their choice then kindly vote for the PDP as you say.
|Politics / Re: Comments By Nigerians On The Recent E-poll (buhari Vs Jonathan) by Gbawe: 10:19am On Oct 19|
Use the link below and see for yourself that you TANdroids are living in denial. You guys continue to deny the obvious which is that Nigerians want and are ready for change. Dishonestly, you hardcore fans of GEJ fail to accept he has turned out to be the opposite of what Nigerians thought him to be ("fresh air", "boy with no shoes" and "transformation" ) which made them troop to cast their vote for GEJ in 2011. Jonathan, in reality, is worse than the past leaders Nigerians were convinced he would be a distinct departure from. You lot better believe that the desire to get rid of GEJ is very real and urgent for most Nigerians.
|Politics / Re: Prophesy about the outcome of a Jonathan's Loss In 2015 by Gbawe: 9:50am On Oct 19|
No disrespect, but your entire analysis is ridiculed by one point you fundamentally misread. If GEJ loses to a landslide opposition victory, then I would really think it would be virtually impossible for MEND to ferment trouble. It would be obvious to the entire world that GEJ was not prevented from running. It was Nigerians who rejected him overwhelmingly. What would their agitation be based upon and who would support an undemocratic refusal to accept that Nigerians in the majority have clearly chosen their President even if that man is not GEJ?
Never forget that, In the past, it could be argued somewhat meritoriously that the MEND cause was just. You are now remaking them in the image of politically compromised and born-to-rule criminals. There would be no sympathy for MEND under such a drastic 'facelift' and completely revised modus operandi. Most Nigerians would overwhelmingly support that the group be crushed since it now only wants to be anarchic for the sake of it and for the political fortune of one man rather than because of any 'injustice' committed against a people or their land. No one nowhere would stand for a 're-branded' MEND, acting as a political militia group for GEJ and his leadership ambition, blackmailing Nigeria.
The rest of your points, like that above you get very wrong, just show a predilection for scaremongering not predicated on solid cause-and-effect logic.
|Politics / Re: Breaking News; Buhari Thrashing Gej In Another Poll by Gbawe: 9:37pm On Oct 18|
TANdroids will be the last to accept that Nigerians are fed up of their ultra-corrupt and "Private jet" messiah. The main achievement GEJ can claim is that private jet ownership has sky-rocketed under his government yet most Nigerians still wallow in abject and worsening poverty.

|Politics / Re: Mobilising For APC Across Nigeria Cc Gbawe, Obiagelli And All APC Supporters. by Gbawe: 7:05pm On Oct 18|
I stand to be corrected but I think the period for voters registration is over unless INEC announce further dates for CVR (continuous voters registration). The most current period for CVR for Ogun state was between Thursday 28th August – Sunday 31st August, 2014 at designated CVR centres in the local government of voters.
As per mobilising Nigerians, we must all embrace innovation to work on things online and on the ground. Online, for example, I am going to try and push to organise Q&A session, via another blog away from Nairaland, with prominent APC politicians to present pertinent questions Nigerians want to ask about APC's planned solutions to the biggest problems facing our nation. There are voters who will be won over if they see the comprehensive plans and leadership template of the APC.
There are many other ideas I won't talk of because I do not want certain ideas plagiarised by the 'desperados'. When the APC has a substantive candidate then these ideas will be rolled out. In your own capacity, convince all registered voters who are friends and relatives to embrace change so we can get Nigeria on track again.
