VP Osinbajo, Lai Mo'hamed And Their Deliberate Insult On Nigerians' Intelligence by TonyeBarcanista(m): 1:25pm On Mar 02, 2016
When President Buhari broke the news that he won't be paying N5,000 to 25 million Nigerians(which is contrary to his campaign promise), there was a reaction of feelings of betrayal of trusts across the country (though some of us weren't surprise). As if that was not enough pill to swallow, the Vice President's office released a statement denying the existence of such promise. This denial came 24hours after the government's spokesman Alhaji Lai Muhammed insulted Nigerians intelligence when he appeared on Channel's TV on February 28. According to Lai Muhammed

Nigerians may forgive President Buhari for failing to meet any of his unrealistic pledges but can we swallow the denial and insults on our collective intelligence from the government? I think it will be appropriate to address the claims of the Vice President and that of the Information Minister squarely before gullible Nigerians swallow them as truth.

1. VP Yemi Osinbajo Claim of No "Unemployment Benefit" Promise:
It is never my intention to pick on Yemi Osinbajo, a man many see as the face of the righteous in government. It is however worrisome when the supposed model of Christians in politics engage in bareface lies just to suit interest of his government and group. First, he desecrated the pulpit by claiming that President Jonathan(and Yar'adua) built no road in 10years. Haba! As if that was not enough he has gone further to deny a key campaign promise of his party.

Was Yemi Osinbajo in limbo when APC Campaign team put up this billboard during the electioneering period?


Is Yemi Osinbajo saying that Hajiyya Aisha Buhari, the President's Wife was out of her mind when she reminded them to fulfil the promise on November 10, 2015 through her spokesperson Mrs Adebisi Ajayi?
“The wife of the President, Her Excellency Aisha Buhari has appealed to the ruling party All Progressives Congress, APC not to renege on their campaign promise of paying N5,000 to 25 million unemployed Nigerians and giving school children one free meal a day."
www.championnews.com.ng/aisha-buhari-to-apc-pay-n5000-to-unemployed-youths-as-promised/

Was Yemi Osinbajo in limbo when in November 2014 the Youth Minister in the presence of the National Chairman of APC, John Oyegun reiterated the government's pledge to pay the unemployment benefit?
“I would want the youth to understand that every promise must be backed up by budgetary provision and our promise to pay N5, 000 is not contained in the 2015 budget. So, definitely, it is going to begin in 2016 as we have made budgetary allocations for that,"

Is the VP telling us that Nigerians are stupid? I won't be surprised if the VP comes tomorrow to deny ever pledging to pay the elderly and disabled that he made on January 7, 2015 in Osun state. Quoting his own words....
“The elderly and the physically challenged would also not be left out, as our government would be giving them allowances.”
www.dailypost.ng/2015/01/07/2015-osinbajo-says-buhari-will-create-720000-jobs-becomes-president/

Or will Osinbajo also deny ever making such statement?

2. Alhaji Lai Muhammed Blame on "Oil Price Fall":
Speaking on Channels TV on Feb 28, 2015, Lai Muhammed said...
“When you campaign, you say you will do A,B, C, but when you win election, you prioritise. “We are still faithful to those promises, but as you have rightly said, when we were campaigning the price of crude was $100 a barrel, today it is $30 a barrel so definitely, we will have to downsize some of the things intended to do but this does not mean abandoning those promises.
https://www.naij.com/747689-president-
buhari-downsize-campaign-promises-lai-
mohammed.html


While I will not spend time to address the effort of the Information Minister to justify a deliberate act of deception, I find his deliberate act of blaming oil price as offensive and inappropriate.

Firstly, oil price started dropping in July 2014 when Buhari was yet to pick up APC Presidential nomination form. As at November 2014, the oil price downed to $77 per barrel from $105 per barrel in July 2014. As at December 2014 when Buhari won the APC ticket, the oil price was at $60.70 per barrel. As at January 2015 when APC inaugurated their Presidential campaign council and rolled out their gigantic promises, the oil price was at $47 per barrel. As at March 2015 when Buhari won the election, the oil price shot to $52 per barrel. As at April 2015 when Buhari was declared winner by INEC, oil price was $57.54 per barrel. There was NEVER a time that APC made ANY promise when oil price was selling at $100 per barrel. Is it that it is only Alhaji Lai Muhammed that was unaware of this?

(See more on oil price history here https://ycharts.com/indicators/average_crude_oil_spot_price)


The positions of VP Yemi Osinbajo and Alhaji Abdulai Muhammed is not only a slap on our intelligence but a scandal on the government of Buhari. The statement by Yemi Osinbajo, that is supposed to be the face of born again Christian believers(which I belong) is worrisome. Is this a government of promised change or a government of change of promise?

No matter what their lies or the unkept promises are, we still can't start accusing a political party that has not even spend up to one year in power/office. We should condemn them or praise them when they finally exhaust their 4 mandated years in office. PDP promised Nigerians heaven and earth but after their many years in power, they couldn't fulfill their promises and Nigerians were left with no other option than to vote them out.
All elements of objectivities are lost in this thread. No matter how bias we want to be, there are some very positive gains that this baby administration has achieved like the victorious ongoing fight again terrorism, the commendable power supply. Mr op, hope you haven't forgotten that the budget is still been debated in the Senate and has not been passed?l.

As for VP Osinbajo, I must say, I'm very disappointed at him.
How could he have condescended so low to join the propagandist to juxtapose facts and conjecture figures without recourse to 'the truths', 'the records' and 'the history'.

Please Read This Rib-cracking article by Prof. Pius Adesanmi

Apostle Paul’s Random Naija Survey


Apostle Paul was the Biblical equivalent of the Nigerian busybody. He was a prolific letter writer. A much better letter writer than President Obasanjo. Apostle Paul wrote his own letters internationally. There was no people he did not feel inclined to guide and advise via letters. He wrote to the Romans, the Corinthians, the Philippians, and the Galatians.
Then he wrote to the Ephesians and the Thessalonians.

Because he wrote so many letters to so many peoples, Apostle Paul often repeated or plagiarized himself. For instance, he gave the Thessalonians and the Ephesians the same advice: in all things, in all situations, give thanks and praise to God. In essence, no matter how worwor your situation is, find some wiggle room for praise.

We are in agreement that President Buhari’s stubborn persistence on the Gulliver lane is an exercise in worwority. Last I heard about the Nigerian President, he had left Saudi Arabia for Qatar and nobody seems to know the next destination. It seems they now just board the plane, roll a die, and tell the pilots to file a flight plan for whatever destination the die falls on.
Were he inclined to write Nigerians at this moment, Apostle Paul would have comforted them and told them to give thanks. At least President Buhari successfully addressed a group of Nigerians in Saudi Arabia and celebrated them without finding drug pushers and fraudsters among them. This is the first time in a long time that the President isn’t on foreign soil with a tar brush ready for his own citizens.

As might be expected, major policy decisions came from Saudi Arabia. Apostle Paul would have written that where you are unable to stop your President from making all his policy announcements on foreign soil, kuku celebrate those announcements if they are good and positive.

The news that those who padded the 2016 budget will be severely punished came from Saudi Arabia but it is a very welcome news. However, that news did not go far enough. Saying that you will punish those who padded your budget is not enough. You must apologize to the nation and accept responsibility for the mess. In the very minimum, you are guilty of egregious dereliction of oversight responsibility for the buck stops at your desk. Also, consider padlocking Lai Mohammed’s mouth for he was denying padding while you were affirming it.

The news that there will be no more security votes for Federal officials also came from Saudi Arabia. It is a welcome development. Apostle Paul would have commended President Buhari for this one in a letter. Another source of free, easy money gone. President Buhari is going to have some rough weeks ahead with the very huge demographic of beneficiaries of free slush money created by the corrupt patronage system of the last order.

Many of those still contesting the 2015 election for President Jonathan on Facebook and Twitter are beneficiaries of the trickle down mechanisms of free money and slush funds put in place by the last administration. Their noise level will increase in the coming weeks as another source of easy money dries up. Anybody they hold responsible for the electoral loss of their ineffectual hero should prepare for rough times ahead as another source of trickle down free money dries up for them. Luckily, Apostle Paul would have written that they should be ignored.

There is also the news that there shall be no more Federal government delegation to Hajj. President Buhari had very harsh words to condemn the wastage represented by this practice. I am yet to hear any commendation by the Christian Association of Nigeria. I hope they understand that this also applies to Federal delegations to Jerusalem. Go and find money to fund your own trips to Jerusalem.

However, Apostle Paul would have noticed that some state Governors were on that lesser hajj with President Buhari. Senator Ibikunle Amosun was there without his fila peteesi (skyscapper fila). Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola was also there jumping upandan. Apostle Paul would have impressed it upon Nigerians to ask some basic questions. These Governors were in Mecca for a religious observance, were they on the usual daily estacode accruable to a Nigerian official on foreign assignment? If they were collecting estacode, why?

If Ogbeni Aregbesola was collecting estacode on that trip, Apostle Paul would have very harsh words for him. Apostle Paul would tell him: Rauf, ika ni e o. You are a very wicked man! You have nearly forgotten the meaning of the word, salary, because you never pay your workers. Yet, you are here in Mecca praying and collecting estacode. Who told you that Allah has time for the prayers and supplications of hypocrites?

Apostle Paul would also look in the direction of Kogi state to take note of a recent little matter. Governor Yahaya Bello discovered that one of the former Governors of the state, Ibrahim Idris, was illegally tapping electricity from Government House for his private residence. In order words, Ibrahim Idris illegally connected his private residence to the electricity grid of Government House and has been enjoying free electricity since he left office. No, it wasn’t free. The people of Kogi have been paying for his electricity consumption. Honestly, ko ni da fun iyalaya Nigerian leaders. Gbogbo won ni o!

The story does not end there. Upon discovering the crime, Governor Yahaya Bello ordered the illegal connection of his predecessor disconnected. Because this is Nigeria and the Nigerian is a special species created by God to suffer and justify his own suffering, there were folks who immediately rushed to the defense of Ibrahim Idris. They said that Governor Bello should not be persecuting his elder and predecessor. How much electricity is Ibrahim Idris consuming sef that Bello is doing gra-gra and embarrassing the man? Apostle Paul would curse this category of Stockholm Syndromed Nigerians for they are the greatest obstacle to the work we are trying to do.

Apostle Paul would also have very harsh words for Governor Yahaya Bello. You discovered a crime and all you did was disconnect? Ibrahim Idris was stealing from the people of Kogi state. He broke the law. He committed a crime. Why did you stop at disconnection? What steps have you taken to ensure that he pays for his crimes according to the laws of the land? What steps would you have taken of you had discovered that the same crime was committed by an ordinary carpenter in Isanlu? Why should the only consequence for Ibrahim Idris be disconnection?
Governor Bello, do the right thing and make an example of this law-breaking predecessor of yours. By stopping at disconnecting his line, you are contributing to worsening Nigeria’s case as a society of crime without punishment. That is why Nigeria is in the 17th century and is not ready to be part of 21st –century modernity and civilization.

Apostle Paul would leave Kogi to check out our friend, His Excellency Otunba Doctor Peter Ayodele Fayose (Jerusalem Pilgrim) in Ekiti, the state that is now said to lead Nigeria in public defecation. Apostle Paul would note that, with his convoy of sleek jeeps following closely, Fayose was as usual at his populist best in Aramoko Ekiti the other day, riding okada to commission taps that are now flowing with water after being dry for four years.

Apostle Paul would note the man hours that Nigerian governors waste commissioning roundabouts, water taps, culverts, and gutters in the 21st century. He would have a very important question for the people of Aramoko Ekiti. You all trooped out to celebrate your Okada governor as he commissioned your water tap. Who among you will have enough civic presence of mind to record how many days of water supply you have from the commissioned taps after the Governor’s visit?

Because of stealing, contract inflation, and poor execution, projects always pack up after commissioning in Nigeria. When your taps dry up again in Aramoko Ekiti, how many of you will perform the civic duty of blowing the whistle so we can descend on Fayose like a ton of bricks?

Apostle Paul would have concluded this Naija round up with: It is well!

TonyeBarcanista:
So how does this relate to the deception of the Buhari administration?

BTW: I'm solidly behind Sheriff...

You are quick to point to the deception of another party after 9months in office, but as a goodwill Nigeria, you won't calculate if it is actually worth it!!

Imagine a scenario where unemployed youths are paid 5000naira monthly but the working men and women are owed their dues!! You will still come out to shout "deception"... I am non partisan and I have witnessed "hard times" in the country!!

But yet I judge every government with the "Forces" affecting it and drop in Oil price is one of them!

Let's go back to your State, if you can be frank with me, you will asnwer my question with all sincerity!!!

Name the Government in Nigeria that has fufilled 20 percent of its campaing promises!!

Talk less of after 9months in Office!!

Quote me when you have an answer to give me!!

Remain blessed!!
