Politics / N27 Million Is A Big Sum - Buhari by Ilekokonit: 1:45am
N27 million is a big sum, thankfully I have personal relationship with the manager of my bank in Kaduna and I told him that very soon the forms are coming, so, whether I am on red, or green or even black please honour it otherwise I may lose the nomination.
https://www.premiumtimesng.com/news/headlines/169607-buhari-says-i-pity-myself-as-he-picks-nomination-form.html

A former President sees N27 million as a big sum and yet some people are against this beacon of honesty ruling us.

Isn't N27 million less than the sums involved in the EFCC V. PATIENCE JONATHAN case ??

In August 2006, the EFCC seized the sum of N104 million from one Mrs. Nancy Ebere Nwosu, an associate of Patience Jonathan.

One thing that amazes me about Buhari is the way people are loyal to him. Considering that he has not held any position for over 20 years, and he is not that rich. can't think of any politician with that kind of support.

Those who were politically conscious enough when Buhari was President will tell you that Nigeria was great then under his disciplined and non corrupt leadership. Shame that IBB toppled him when IBB's cup of corruption was nearly full as Buhari was getting close to treating IBB's corruption dossier before IBB struck.
Politics / Jonathan Said He Can't Sort Out Our Power Problems Even If Given Another 4 Years by Ilekokonit: 12:34am
President Goodluck Jonathan on Feb 01 2011 said the following :-
If I’m voted into power, within the next four years, the issue of power will become a thing of the past. Four years is enough for anyone in power to make significant improvement and if I can’t improve on power within this period, it then means I cannot do anything even if I am there for the next four years .”

Politics / I Will Not Contest 2015 Election – Jonathan - Feb 01 2011, Ankara, Turkey by Ilekokonit: 12:23am
I‘ll not contest 2015 election – Jonathan

Feb 01 2011

BY DANIEL IDONOR

ANKARA, TURKEY — President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, said he has no ambition to stay in office beyond 2015, assuring Nigerians in Diaspora that while he will not contest the 2015 election, he will ensure that this year’s election is free and fair.

The President promised that if voted in for the next four years, he would ensure significant improvement in key sectors of the economy — security, power, education, road, health amongst others.

But if I’m voted into power within the next four years, the issue of power will become a thing of the past. Four years is enough for anyone in power to make significant improvement and if I can’t improve on power within this period, it then means I cannot do anything even if I am there for the next four years.”

Jonathan said this while interacting with Nigerians mainly diplomats working in the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, UNECA, and the African Union, AU, in Addis-Ababa.

Presently, the law does not allow the voting outside Nigeria and so this year Nigerians in Diaspora will not vote but I will work towards it by 2015 even though I will not be running for election .”

Politics / Nigeria Could Be A G-20 Member If It Tackled Corruption - Hilary Clinton by Ilekokonit: 3:08pm On Oct 22
culled from Hilary Clinton's memoirs - Hard choices

No country has suffered more from the resource curse than Nigeria.

Nigeria could be a G-20 member and an influential global voice if it made the hard choice to overcome the resource curse.

When I visited in 2009 and 2012, I stressed the urgency of Nigerians tackling corruption and investing revenues to improve millions of lives, not swell personal fortunes.

Fashion / Re: Ebola: US Company Makes Ebola T-shirt Mocking Nigeria by Ilekokonit: 11:47pm On Oct 20
These oyinbo people ALWAYS have selective amnesia when it comes to Nigeria. The originator of that tee shirt chose to conveniently forget that Ebola came into Nigeria the exact same way it came into America. On a plane.

If only we had respectable politicians who are not too busy looting to care about Nigerias image in the world.

Nigeria's battered image does not concern or affect our politicians in any way as long as their stolen Billions are safe and their children do not have to hunt for jobs and face prejudice for being Nigerians.

Education / Re: I Need Advise Urgently!!!! by Ilekokonit: 7:15pm On Oct 20
All the best but any course you do, make sure you keep your eye on the ball by knowing that what matters in future are the doors that would be open to you by the good people you meet whilst doing the course of your choice.
Education / Re: I Need Advise Urgently!!!! by Ilekokonit: 6:13pm On Oct 20
Tell your Dad my story.

I was "cajoled" to study Medicine from a young age by my mum. so I did Jamb 3 times, did not fail once as i scored 224 Ist time, 250 2nd time, and 284 final time and entered UI medicine when the cut off was 280.

After 4 years at UI Medical school, I became disillusioned, lost the zeal to study and the final straw that made me leave was consistently seeing people score more marks than me in exams when 20% of my class were known to cheat in exams and the already brilliant Professor of Medicine's children would see the exam questions before the d/day and leak same to their friends and hangers on and anyone who was adept at doing eye service which I wasn't.

So, I left Medical school much to my mums dismay and started and completed the ACCA exams at my own pace

How many years and how much money was wasted ?
3 years on Jamb + 4 Years at UI making 7 whole years plus a lot of money on feeding, travel and expensive text books.

This time needn't have been wasted if my Mum did not brain wash me from a young age that I was going to study Medicine. The hand writing was already on the wall that I was more gifted with figures as i did not have to study to pass Mathematics. Once the teacher or my dad explained the logic to me, it stuck forever.

Its not what you read at school that makes you in life but who you know and a huge dose of LUCK.

If I came to life again, I would choose and do the easiest course in the Uni because that almost guarantees me a first class degree and means that whilst my Law, Engineering and especially Medical shool mates are studying for 16 hours a day, I can study for just 3 hours a day, join the right social clubs, go to all the fun parties, have time to socialise and build future networks AND STILL get a first class degree.

And later, I will get good jobs or contracts faster than my brow beaten / "hard course" / damaged / tired colleagues because in this Old boys network world, the fact that I had enough free time to socialise with the right people at Uni means that any good jobs or contracts going will possibly have my name in the top prospects list simply because I had time for socialising at Uni because I did not choose or was not forced to do a difficult course that wears you down with next to no future financial rewards.

There are so many Hungry Lawyers and Underfed Medical Doctors in Nigeria.

Or why do you think Governor Mimiko, Governor Uduaghan and Ex-Governor Odili who are qualified Medical doctors decide to hang their stethoscopes and venture successfuly into politics.

The current Governor of Ogun State Ibikunle Amosun had F9 parallel in Maths, Physics and Chemistry O#levels and still became Governor. This proves once again that "Its not what you know but who you know" that matters in life

Politics / Re: Buhari Took Bank Loan To Purchase APC Nomination Form by Ilekokonit: 2:01am On Oct 18
Aja to ma sonu ko ni gbo fere olode. (A dog that is determined to get lost will not hear the farmers whistle).

It seems Nigerians prefer to hail the corrupt politicians and rubbish the few honest ones. Same way Gani Fawehinmi contested and lost because Nigerians preferred being held captive by Bandits.

Same way Nigerians respond in arguments with the silly phrase if you yourself get there you will steal

What a cop out. Are we now saying that out of 170 million people there is not 1 genuinely honest person ?

A genuinely frugal and by ALL accounts honest man puts himself forward to rescue us from criminals and all we can do is to ridicule the man and yet we will go to our places of worship and scream at God to send us a messiah when there is already one in our midst.

Maybe its a case of Stockholm syndrome where the captured / kidnapped starts developing excuses for why he deserved to be kidnapped.
Politics / Re: E-VOTE (NOW) for President : Jonathan (GEJ) Vs. Buhari (GMB) by Ilekokonit: 1:57am On Oct 16
hifaif:


I heard and read from government textbooks and wikipedia that Buhari and his deputy, Idiagbon, abhorred corruption and that Nigerians were forced to be disciplined during their regime.

I also read from Wiki that there were beliefs that IBB toppled Buhari's government because corrupt officers and politicians were threatened by Buhari's stance against corruption.

Buhari was a thorn in the flesh of corrupt politicians that he replaced. For starters their stolen cash became too hot to handle for them as a masterstroke of Buhari's was for him to unexpectedly change the design and colour of naira bills in 1983 thus forcing everyone who had naira in their posession to go to the banks to exchange the old notes for the new ones. Now corruptly enriched ex-politicians dared not take their loot to the bank to exchange as the fear of Buhari then was the beginning of wisdom.

If OBJ was given a chance to rule us for 8 years then Buhari deserves a chance too. Of the lot, Buhari stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of his frugality and honesty. Buhari is simply a cut above Jonathan in terms of integrity.

Politics / Re: UPDATES: Immediate Observations From Buhari's Declaration. by Ilekokonit: 7:04pm On Oct 15
Buhari has just finished Jonathan.

Hear him :- “I want to pay tribute to Nigerians who are enduring all sorts of hardship and degradations on a daily basis,” Buhari said.

“Many are grappling with extreme poverty and barely eking out a living.

Nigeria, in my experience, has never been so divided, so polarised by an unthinking government, hellbent on ruling and stealing.

The economy continues to deteriorate while the Government continues to announce fantastic growth figures. Simply because you sell oil and steal part of the money does not entitle you to cook figures and announce phantom economic growth.

When PDP came to power in 1999 Nigeria was generating about 4,000 M/W of electricity. After 15 years and $20 billion spent we are generating between 3,000 – 4,000 M/W. No failure is more glaring than this.

The rest of the world looks at Nigeria as the home of corruption. Nigeria is a country where stealing is not corruption.

I think Mikel was given food for thought by a Journalist on the plane back from the 1-0 loss to Sudan in Khartoum on Saturday. The journalist stood up to Mikel's excuses of a bad pitch and told Mikel that they do not deserve to go to the tournament. Also Okocha criticised the Eagles performance.

If only our political journalists can drop their Ghana must go journalism and call a spade a spade to our Polithiefians on the pages of their newspapers

The journalists eyeball to eyeball criticism of Mikel on that plane coupled with Okocha's criticisms probably got Mikel thinking and for a fleeting second he managed to re-discover the dribbling genius that made Man U and Chelsea fight over him when he was about moving to the UK around 2004 and Mikel had to resort to hiding in his hotel to think about the juiciest offer to accept.

Shame that Chelsea changed his skillful game to a more cautious one albeit that he is smiling to the bank on a weekly basis.

His lack of corruption is ENOUGH to make me cast my vote for him.

Corruption is the problem that has kept 98% of Nigerians poor, So, Buhari being Non-Corrupt means he is the solution to our current problem of corruption in high places.

Whichever way, abusing your president with such words is condemnable.

I will never be careful when abusing Treasury Looters.

I am 101% sure Jonathan is a Thief and a Treasury Looter.

God does not mind my abusing a Treasury Looter.

Jonathan stealing from Nigerians is condemnable.

My parents are not Treasury Looters.

Every Treasury Looter including Jonathan is a BSTARD and as long as God is on the throne, all Treasury Looters including Jonathan, OBJ, IBB, Abdulsalami, Tinubu etc etc will all die untimely deaths including their collaborators and apologists.

Treasury Looters don't show any mercy when impoverishing and killing Nigerians with poverty, hunger and hopelessness hence Treasury Looters OF ALL PARTIES and TRIBES deserve no mercy as they are all BSTARDS and will rot somewhere worse than hellfire.
