[b]In defense

1.We need oil to be at $140 per barrel to get a budget that will enable us meet all needs and slash debts.

2.Oil is at $60 per barrel...if not less. That means for every barrel of oil we sell...we lose $80 at least.

3.We could have saved money if we slashed subsides, but because Nigerians have reacted any attempt at removing fuel subsidy fully since it means prices for fuel above N300 per barrel....

4.We have not been able to diversify because there are no ready markets for our agric produce like there was in the good old days of the 1960's...when the UK bought a lot of what we produced.

5.Taxes have gone up. They brought in an income of $5 trillion. Looks like a lot....but we need at least $3trillion for our universities alone(ideally!!!!!)

6. We can all agree on one thing....APC has failed. They have not done enough to change our economy, and they are not ready to tell Nigerians the truth, that our economy is poor, and we need a major austerity led project to become an industrial nation, we need to fight corruption not partially, and we need to do our part by paying our bills (most Nigerians don't pay for power at all). But even if we all vote PDP tomorrow...unless PDP has something better than 'JOBS' BETTER' etc....I don;t see anything changing.....


UNLESS....oil shoots up above $140 again[/b]


The thing is, if we want a developed nation, we all have to stop acting like babies expecting government to feed us at all time...which is a big part of why many Nigerian governments fail.The feeding bottle is one eighth full.....

The saying "True things are said in jest" applies succinctly to the statement from the parody account below...

"I'm trying to create equality. Let us all be poor in peace"

Dangote and Alakija are poorer in 2018 "after just 3 and a half years of Buhari" (in Rotimi Amaechi's Voice)

Meanwhile Kyari is wearing a N17.6m watch Aisha is wearing a N10mm one and his son was riding a N56m power bike all after just 3 and a half years. Who is fooling who?!

This is WHO BUHARI IS

This is WHAT BUHARI DOES

Give yourself brain.


Fool me once, shame on you
Fool me twice, shame on me


And the insecurity he promised to defeat is growing and multiplying

The best idea that has ever come from this administration!

If he could, Nigerians will never forget him!

He should start with himself and Osibanjo! The rest shouldn't be so difficult!

If he would not witch hunt undecided

They kept telling us that they blocked every way the politicians are having access to illegal funds then I ask is Tinubu not among these politicians His kinsmen, families and relations are also millionaires overnight undecided

I hope that this is not the way he intend to reduce it

Wait a sec, who are the handlers of this fool?

Does this clown understand that minimum wage is a wage curve that entails that NO employee of the government has to earn below?

How did this country get saddled with this miseducated filth?
