Politics / Re: Stop Using APGA's Logo To Campaign For Jonathan, PDP Warns APGA by Gbawe: 10:02am On Aug 29
chukwudi44:

What level of Bottom licking is lower than what you do here daily for your APC paymasters

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.

Most of you must have repeated every class because you guys line of thought is so appalling

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.

When people from outside look at us,they wonder how a people can condone such impunity and live in such deceit and lies from a ruling elite cabal that is so greedy,even in the expense of the lives of the ordinary Nigerian.

I can't blame the youth,they either beat or join them-the poor man don't know better already blinded by ethnicity,religion and culture.

When people see this,they laugh at us-cos Nigeria is one funny scenerio of perpetual lies,deceit and waste.

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.

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.

@Topic.

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.

http://www.ogunstate.gov.ng/media-centre-66/ogun-news/366-towards-a-mega-city-amosun-signs-mou-on-light-rail-project.html

Towards A Mega City: Amosun Signs MOU On Light Rail Project

Ogun State Government has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on light rail mass transit with the China Civil Engineering Construction Company that will link major cities in the state as well as boost its economy.

While signing the MOU in his Oke-Mosan Office in Abeokuta, Governor Ibikunle Amosun noted that there can be no development without putting the necessary infrastructures in place. He said “ We have been doing our best on roads but it is high time we paid attention to rail as well. We are starting the mass transit within Abeokuta metropolis. This will be extended to all our major towns including the Ado-Odo/Ota axis which will encompass all the border area with Lagos”.

“Our first focus is intra city rail mass transit, thereafter we will embark on linking the cities together. Within the next couple of years, you will begin to see the results of what we are trying to do to improve transportation of goods and services”,he said.

Governor Amosun said it was imperative to boost transportation in the state since the state population is projected to rise significantly over the next couple of years.

In his remarks the Managing Director of China Civil Engineering Construction Company, Mr. Cao Bao Gang applauded the Senator Ibikunle Amosun-led administration for its developmental vision for the state, pointing out that, ’’ the project on completion will enhance the transportation system and contribute to the economic development of the Gateway State.’’

He assured that the highest quality will be deployed in the implementation of the project adding that ‘’it will provide jobs for residents and help the unskilled ones to gain adequate knowledge through training and involvement in the whole process.

The signing of the MOU was witnessed by top government functionaries including the Secretary to the State Government, Barrister Taiwo Adeoluwa, Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mrs. Abimbola Akeredolu, Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Otunba Bimbo Ashiru, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Alhaji Yusuph Olaniyonu as well as the Chinese Consul-General, Liu Xian Fa, among others.
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.

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.

Nigeria being the greatest grand force in Africa can handle this Boko Haram issue, only if Nigeria key players stop playing politicians with this issue.

@OP

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.

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.

duni04:
Many talking ignorantly about debt. When we don't know how finance, debt and money work, its hard to hold our leaders accountable. People should realise that these states borrow because of their high IGR'S not inspite of the high IGR's. When they borrow money, they hedge the money against the income they expect to earn within the framework or tenure of the debt. Lenders dole out loans to states that are capable of repaying such loans. Lagos for instance has hedged its 25 billion naira infrastructure bond against its monthly IGR. Its as simple as a student on a 20k allowance taking out a 60k loan to buy a phone and promising to hedge the loan against his allowance so that 10k is deducted from his allowance by the lender every month so that in 6 months he would have paid back the loan and still have plenty of money to spend.
This Means the debt is serviced by monthly deductions from the states IGR. Since the IGR is statutory and seldom declines but instead increases, the state will have no problems servicing its debt.
Infrastructure financing through debt is pure common sense. No contractor is going to wait for a state to collect its IGR monthly before getting paid for a job. Its only logical for states seeking to fund high capital projects to seek loans in lump sums and hedge against expected revenue.
If south west states are the heaviest borrowers, there are two implications:
1. They generate the highest IGR's hence the willingness of borrowers to allow them hedge their loans against the states' revenues.
2. They're the only states embarking on heavy capital intensive projects which require bulk financing and hence cannot be undertaken with federal allocations or covered entirely by their IGR's.

I'm aware most SW states use their federal allocations just to pay salaries of public workers. They finance capital projects with their IGR's through debt financing. Other regions in Nigeria in contrast are solely dependent on meagre federal allocations.

The illiterate rabble-rouser is too 'thick' to even have an inkling of what you are talking about.

Even beyond Nigeria, those who see the big picture and wish Nigeria well celebrate the arrival of the APC as another unavoidable landmark in the path Nigeria must travel towards greatness. The PDP will not reform from the goodness of its own heart. 15 'locust years' under the "nest of killers" bears this out as almost a fact. A Party is barely two years old but it is making the brutally callous ruling Party to sit up and tremble. APC, for all its fault, will continue to grow and the Party will get its chance for sure because the PDP is full of individuals used to stealing every kobo and giving nada back in return.

A unit goes for like between $2-4 million, and Nigeria should be able to afford hundreds of those tanks with ease - based on the threat the country is facing. The country has been at war for about four years now.



This is the crux of the matter and I don't see why Nigerians fail to see that this is an untenable failing of government that means heads, from the very top downwards, should roll.

Also, have you now not been "on sabbatical" for a few years now? Fraudster. Why don't you just confess that you are a paid e-sycophant and professional azzlicker?

Politics / Re: 480 Nigerian Soldiers Flee To Cameroon by Gbawe: 6:23pm On Aug 25
Seun:
That does not logically follow from what I'm saying. I'm saying that it makes no sense for GEJ to fail at his job on purpose. It's one thing to say that his efforts are not effective and quite another thing to say he doesn't care. It makes no political sense for him not to care. Even if he truly doesn't care on a personal level, he must surely care that his continued failure to beat Boko Haram is destroying him politically.

Look, he does not "give a damn". Those who say GEJ does not care mean it literally - and justifiably so from the actions and inaction of Mr.President. You disregard the notion that GEJ has proven to be a very crude and callous administrator. Were you on Mars when Ribadu, as head of the Petroleum task force GEJ set up, recommended that Nigeria immediately stop, as the only major exporter of crude doing so, selling our oil through traders because this abets corruption and theft against Nigeria?

Even with such a public call to task, did GEJ act? NO !!! Even more indicative of his total devotion to doing the opposite of what will deliver solutions, GEJ binned the entire Ribadu report, disgraced the former EFCC chairman publicly and sanctioned a character assassination war against Mallam Ribadu. You forget also, when it was vital he did so, GEJ failed, till today, to bring fuel subsidy scammer to book. In fact, if I am correct and in testimony to the sheer shamelessness of our President, one of those in Court for scamming Nigeria is now coordinating the TAN 'boju-boju' fraud for GEJ i.e Ifeanyi Ubah.

Those are only two glaring episode, out of many, of Jonathan acting in a way that shows "he does not care" to deliver solutions and is is disinterested in any notion of his political interest being affected by his actions/inactions. This is a man who believes he can crudely fail everyone, brazenly abet corruption and malfeasance openly all day and then use the wealth of Nigeria to buy everyone on board when elections are upon us.

If you are honest with yourself you will admit GEJ has, unlike other leaders, never demonstrated the leadership style that involves direct application of pertinent solution to major problems facing his Country. He will either drag his feet, abet the root cause of the problem or directly worsen things with his indifferent attitude and inaction. To me, this is the sign GEJ is a seriously compromised administrator leading on behalf of those who cause Nigeria's problem. The Boko Haram issue is the same with how Jonathan indirectly admits that the sponsors of the terror group are his associates and co-workers yet he lets them continue their nefarious deeds. Bottom line is that this is a man disinterested in leading yet absolutely obsessed with holding on to power. He subscribes to the condemnable ways of the past whereby sit-tight failed leaders simply use everything ,whether money or political office/favours and EFCC bullying, to buy more time in power. Why perform when you are in a nation still backward and corrupt enough to let you continue in power as long as 'awon boyz' are settled handsomely?
