Achievements Of Lateef Jakande's Government From October 1979 To December 1983 by Nobody: 7:30pm On Nov 08, 2017
Let me tell you that we can do mightier and colossal projects if we decide to engage ourselves to doing it.

Our present government are only deceiving themselves in the name of leadership.
They can never be mentors and leaders but self-centered men.
A mentor is one who guides you through with his experiences and expertise. They all claim to be mentors because that's what we they are.
How many real mentors do we have in Nigeria, not the ones in the national assembly or governor's lodge?
These guys don't have real experiences and can never offer you any meaningful business exposition.
Now check out what someone achieved in 4 years of which I was a beneficiary of one of his project - Free Education.

WHO SAYS 4 YEARS IN OFFICE IS NOT ENOUGH FOR MEANINGFUL ACHIEVEMENTS?

IT'S A FACT THAT 90% OF GOVERNORS IN NIGERIA SINCE 1999 WITH REVENUES AT THEIR DISPOSAL CANNOT BOAST OF A QUARTER OF THESE ACHIEVEMENTS EVEN WITHIN THEIR EIGHT YEARS IN OFFICE.

Are we not tired of hearing same old problems year after year without answers?

Mass retrenchment, falling oil prices, bailout funds, unemployment, looting and relooted funds, restructuring, economic recession, etc.
