|Stella Oduah Disgraced | Tunde Fashola Hailed by kYjelly2: 12:46am On Nov 13, 2015|
Stella oduah was hounded for spending 255 million for bullet proof cars as a minister while Fashola who spent 78 million naira for a common website is hailed as the beacon of change
Lets even do some analysis, isn't what Stella bought closer to the amount she spent, than what fashola spent in relation to what he got
In other words, isn't it easier to get away with 255 million for 2 bullet proof cars than it is to get away with 78 million naira for a brochure website any where in the world
Yet he got away, due to naijas never ending hypocrisy
Practical example, BMW has a bullet proof X5 going for 110,000 pounds. multiply by two, that would be 220,000 pounds. that only resists ak47 shells but isn't blast proof. we can argue for sake of argument that blast proofing would increase the price tag and get the number closer to 500,000 pounds or more.
Now please tell me a brochure site that has ever been created for more than 500,000 naira before anywhere in the world. A brochure site is different from an application, which nairaland and facebook are and even those were created by young kids just meddling with what they loved.
So how is it that one was hounded and the other was not even question by the EFCC and allowed to sail into a ministry as a minster?
One was removed while being a minister, while the other is accepted even with a more obvious misappropriation case to answer to.
It just seems naija is filled with hyprocrites.
Now back to the praise singing of Fashola the change that will change ministry, mtcheew.
As always, for the love of country, this country will get better by fire by fore, but the hypocrites will answer one day, if not here then in the life beyond, mtcheew

Op,that's naija for you! ***Modified*** FTC again? A whole lot of things is still keeping our country tied up on the ground,I keep on saying it over and over again.. Amalgamation of 1914 should be termed one of the greatest mistakes or decisions of the 19th century,it should be in the Guiness World Records. Nairalanders, do have a lovely weekend ahead.

...and for those about to say Fashola never did that blah blah blah, please we all know he tried to defend himself with a flimsy response about children this and that, mtcheew.
Read it yourselves, I believe it was posted here as well
[b]Setting the Records Straight
A Statement by his Excellency, Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN the immediate past Governor of Lagos State
“When you wrestle with a pig, the pig gets happy and you get dirty.”
This statement of profound wisdom informed my silence in the wake of manipulated and unsubstantiated allegations of wrongdoing recently being levelled against me. They started a few weeks to the end of my tenure, and have continued till date.
They range from allegations of extra marital paternity of children, to mundane and phantom conspiracy in the National Assembly, a debt profile for Lagos State and lately a website upgrade contract of N78million, which is being distorted.
In so far as the allegations of paternity are concerned, they are wicked and false. I have no biological children other than my two children.
Of course, I adopted three children who became orphaned as a result of the tragic DANA Airplane crash of 2012 and the adoption followed due process. Those who do not care whether they hurt innocent children or invade the privacy of other citizens in their mindless rage against me will have their rewards served upon them in the fullness of time.
As far as my alleged involvement in the National Assembly elections are concerned, they remain only the products of the imagination of those who made the allegations. I was out of the country at the material time and returned only in the early hours of that morning to Abuja, and from there proceeded to Lagos.
As far as debts of Lagos State are concerned, the fact is that Lagos had always had depts. her population is growing and for a long time she has run deficit budgets to cater to the needs of that growing population.
All the debts contracted in my time were approved by the Parliament in the annual budgets, some have been paid back and the financial status was healthy and stable when I left. The outlook for the state and her rating by Fitch was long-term foreign and local currency IDRs at ‘BB-‘, short-term IDR at ‘B’ and national long-term rating at ‘AA+(nag)’.
When we all pause and reflect and think, we will realise that there are a sizeable number of companies who are running business, who have no responsibility for Security, Public Health, Public Education and other responsibilities of Government, who borrow more than Lagos State Government, whether collectively or individually.
As far as the website contract is concerned, yes there was a contract, It went through procurement and was approved by the Government agency authorised to do so.
One of the services was an “upgrade” quoted for N12.5 million but awarded for N12 million. There were other services that were new; like a handover countdown clock, mobile Apps for Google, for IOS and iPad, forMicrosoft and for Research in Motion (Blackberry), which the existing website did not have, as well as the annual maintenance cost of managing the website.
It was for all these services that the contract was issued for N78 million, which the Lagos State procurement agency gave a No objection based on the advice of the Ministry of Science and Technology, who are the Government adviser on ICT matters.
In publishing this Contract award which was the Government tradition under my watch, the procurement agency’s website summarised it as “upgrade” only without detailing the other services and this has been distorted by the agents of hate as their suspected “smoking gun”.
For those who are familiar with mobile applications, they will know that users either pay for them online or download them for free.
What is usual is that applications for service are usually provided to users free, but somebody bears the cost.
Since these applications were to be made available to the public for free access and to assist Government communication, we decided to pay for them.
The entire documents are with the Lagos State Government and are available for those who seek the truth. For the record, since 2008, long before the Freedom of Information Act ever passed, we had put out our contracts on the State website because people deserve to know.
It is regrettable that a “summary” of the contract has been deliberately distorted to misinform the public.
This particular website came into being as a result of the decision I made to make my telephone number public for the several thousands of people seeking to reach me daily.
The website that is now under attack helped me to do my job and to respond to citizens, and the contract was issued to run till my last day of office. It stands logic upside down for to “fraudulently” award a contract and then have it published on a website.
To date, there have been 27.666 million hits on this website with 1,844 videos, 34,381 photographs, 2,531 Press Releases and 595 Speeches, among other items for public communication.
I have chosen to make this personal response because as the head of government at the time of the transaction, the buck as they say stops on my desk and also because of the many calls, text messages and mails coming from many people seeking clarification; and to prevent fiction from being mistaken for truth.
I expect that there may be more distorted allegations without evidence, for reasons that remain in the realm of speculation because, I have been informed reliably that large amounts of money are being paid to some of these agents to bear false witness.
I cannot conclude without responding to the crusade of CACOL and their ilk, seeking my prosecution on allegations that have no proof and writing “pre-emptive” letters to the Presidency.
In case they are unaware, I am not looking for a job. I expect them to know that allegations of wrong doing are not resolved without evidence, neither are they resolved in press conferences.
I have served my state, and by extension, my country for Twelve and half years and I did so with my heart.
I am taking the rest that I believe I have earned.
For those who still wish to remain in the mud, they should look in the mirror.
For those who wish to throw mud at me, they should look at their own hands.
As for me, I have moved on. My job is done.
Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN.[/b]

Good one OP.
But Fashola bought bullet proof too, they forgot but I did not.
The brand of the bullet proof cars is identified as Toyota Prado Jeep. The cost of each jeep- including handling, registration, insurance and other fees- is two hundred million naira. The three jeeps are valued at six hundred million naira.

And this is your defense for obvious criminal double-standards and hypocrisy? Whose toes did she step on? And all the rubbish Fashola did by deporting Igbos....if that's not stepping on toes what would you call it?
Princess Stellas' only offense was agreeing to work as a Minister in this cursed country where a certain ethnic group feels the Aviation Ministry is their birthright!

mikolo80:the above was your previous post, PLS rehearse the bolded after then read what you wrote down there (the capitalized and bold)
now i see how intelligent yorubas are. Their high rate of double standard is beyond my comprehension. From her comment fashola was so intelligent in deporting the igbos while stella was too foolish making sure professional are in the mantle of affairs. To her also because fashola didn't rob shoulders with tinubu he should be exornorated from his obvious and blatant stealing but stella should be persecuted for not allowing mediocrity.

That is why they would never get it right. Very useless country! Modified, the hypocrasy & double standards of the yorubas is so annoyingly disgusting. Believe me if outstanding personalities like NOI, Arunma Otteh, Stella Odua & other amazons were to be from south west, they would have praised them to high heavens!! Those folks are parasitic leeches, they see corrupt men like Tifnubu, "Tunde" fashola, fayemi, aregberascal among others that fleeced them as heroes while the egaliterian Igbos would condemn any of their own that abused office like they are doing to people like t.a orji & rochas. No wonder while the SE has achieved almost all their MDG's, the NW has overtaken the SW in terms of sustainabillity!!!!

Who's comparing apples and oranges just because they were both plucked in a garden?
Oduah was a lipstick wearing disaster while Fashola was an administrator par excellence who has sufficiently explained the allegations against him.

Finally,,,,somebody is thinking like me. APC Politics stinks....
Former Rivers State Governor Rotimi Ameachi drove El Rufai and was rewarded as Minister of Transport.
The day of Ameachi's inauguration, Bola Tinubu upped the antics by driving El Rufai in a Taxi....See who is now loyal to the Unofficial vice president. He even skipped a whole Ministerial inauguration in Abuja to do driver work for the Boss Rufai in Kaduna. SLAVE MENTALITY

Stella has hardly been disgraced.....she is now a Senator.
Ah well, the problem with this thread is that it is less about fighting corruption, and more about my car being bigger than your car.
And that's all I have to say about the matter.
