Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by pendelite(f): 7:26pm On Jan 11, 2006
Instead of postulations why not express you opinion and compare the results with others that have voted on a third term for OBJ?

@Pendelite
You too like this 3rd term bid too much o.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by larger20(m): 12:53am On Jan 12, 2006
I really do surport OBJ. Not becasue he is giving me anything ..He is not and I dont need his money to lift up nigeria's image.
My point is that our problem lies in the hands of our people not in OBJ besides I do rather chalange the evil that I have seen his effect (OBJ) than the evil I have not seen his effect (badangida, orji kalus etc)

let this man continue his mission to end corruption practise in nigeria

What we need is a Miracle. someone who really wants to change Nigeria and got the fear of God. Doesn't matter if it's Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, male or female.

I say no to 3rd term because I don't see any significant change. People are still complaining of poverty, lack of jobs, and students spending 5 years at home before finally getting into a college.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by chanag: 11:59am On Jan 15, 2006
My vote is NO to 3rd Term.
OBJ has made a name for himself on the aspect of his effort in breaking the myth surrounding some minority of Nigerians that are described as "untouchable". He has helped to also remove the myth that telephone is for the poor, which over the years had impeded economic development in the country because of the myopic views of previous leaders. OBJ has bridged better relationship between Nigeria and the wider world communities. He was the only past dictator that voluntarily handed power in the past.
I consider him as a man that love the progress of Nigeria and will not do anything to destroy it. He has to go as stipulated by the current constitution and even if the constitution is changed, he and the incumbents should not be the pioneers of the new constitution.

In a country of over 130 million people, there are men and women of like-minds that would be happy to carry on with the fight against corruption. He should help in preparing all Nigerians for the best leadership qualities even for the President of Nigeria.

On this I will urge him to advise his spokesman to watch his utterances, as politics is a matter of integrity and not a war zone.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by pkrix(m): 5:38pm On Jan 15, 2006
Now, 88% of Nigeria says they do not support Third Term but a democratic Nigeria may still have Third Term.

OBJ in his words: "A tenure shall last for five years and a president shall rule just for a single tenure and being the president introducing this constitution, I'll be the first to be a president under this proposed new constitution" (...Paraphrase)

This is an obviously vivid selfiness of the highess degree.

That will be a good constitution. Introduce it and then let Nigerians to practise it. I am not against him being a president for a 3rd time but I am against him because of his age. Let him retire for someone younger; afterall the constitutionalized age for retirement according to the Nigerian Constitution, has he for a long time lived beyond.

A good leader should be an example to others.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by sidiq(m): 6:21pm On Jan 15, 2006
For Obj to be asking for a 3rd term means he knows what are our so called reps and senators can do, and he also knows what they want. We all voted for him, and now we are shouting NO for a 3rd term. Anyway, Mr. President can go for a third term if he wants, and no one can stop him from doing that, because he already knows the extent to which our leaders can go. Which is going back home with Ghana- must-go each to shut their mouth.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by badman(m): 5:31pm On Jan 19, 2006
the fact there is that we dont want him again but i bet u if he contest even up to 5th term he will still win cry
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by dblock(m): 6:26am On Jan 21, 2006

Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by dblock(m): 12:14pm On Jan 26, 2006
Is it true that Obasanjo will freeze NFA if Nigeria doesn't support His third term bid. If it is so then This Man will ruin Nigeria, if the country is not yet broken he will powderise the nation. What kind of a politictian let me not even say President, blackmails a nation. What is the world turning into, first Iran Blackmails then Naija. The End IS NEAR

We must chase this people out.He his the king of corruption.
As him about the 2billion naira that got missing from the government accout in 1978 that fela was always talking about.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by giddy(m): 4:00pm On Jan 26, 2006
We are all against the proposed agenda of the President to run for a 3rd term. Though most Nigerians see it as a 3rd term, I see it as his 4th tenure, yes, fourth term.

I hope we have not forgotten his first regime as a Military!! Was he born always to be in Aso Rock? Why can't we think. He mustn't come back. Power has to rotate.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by Idekeson(m): 8:18pm On Feb 09, 2006
All of a sudden Nigerians with hidden personal agendas are trying to make us believe that Obasanjo is the solution to our problems. There are countless Nigerians that can govern but Will never have access to government because of our "selection" rather election process. Obasanjo can become a revolutionary leader by conducting a free and fair election for the first time in Nigeria and change the course of history. Can he go against the ruling elite which unfortunately he is one of them? This is the problem holding Nigeria down which no constitutional change or 3rd term can resolve.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by Nobody: 12:04am On Feb 10, 2006
Obj or no Obj,I say NO to any attempt to add a "third term" to the constitution.I dont think that Obj has bad intentions for this country.Even then,he must give way for others to try.IMO
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by ijele(m): 12:26pm On Feb 10, 2006
PLS GIVE IGBOS CHANCE TO RULE, THEY RE SIMPLY THE BEST; NO SENTIMENT,TRIBLISM,NEPOTISM but BRIBERLY am not too sure.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by beautiple(f): 4:19pm On Feb 10, 2006
Before he can even consider a third term, Obj should frist of all show respect to the rule of law. The constitution of Nigeria made no provision for a third term. So if he wants a third term, he should quicken the purportedly proposed amendment to the constitution, like he does every other thing, in other to favour himself.

He was given a chance both as a military and a civilian president. He played his part, let him give someone else a chance to try too. The next person might even do better things with regard to the so called reforms that people are scared of deteriorating if Obj does not continue.

I believe that these problems of corruption and lawlessness would end as soon as everyone, both the leaders and the lead become subject to the law. No one person will make Nigeria better except the rule of law prevails.

If Obj does just whatever he likes, he is not suitable to occupy the seat of a president, he should step down at the end of this his second term so that someone else will try. A good leader should always lead by example.

I dont support third term neither am i in support of messing with exixting laws in order to satisfy one's whims and caprices.

To all OBJ lovers, please tell your man to go after 2 terms. I think he has done his bit. Let someone else do it. What if he drops dead today, are we going to pack up and move to Ghana? Please give me a break, there are people that can do better than OBJ. OBJ dey fight corruption, I beg leave story. His # 2 man na one of the greatest political robbers we have ever had in Nigeria. Why is EFCC not going after him. Don't tell me OBJ no know say Atiku na thief.
Re: Third Term Agenda <Vote, Comments> by wadner1: 3:32pm On Mar 06, 2006
If he is doing that, why was he blaming Abacha then? u cant solve anything in 8 years then how can he do it in 5 years, i guess he is quite aware of what happened to Abacha, he was arresting his opponents then using "failed bank whatever" then now Obasanjo too he is using EFCC to supress his own opponents too, so why was he blaming Abacha?

third term and the road to uganda:


THEN
Press conference, Uganda. june 9, 1995

PETER MWESIGE, The Crusader: You have on several occasions said that the appropriate time for you to leave power has not come; you repeated it during your campaigns. I want you to explain to me like a six-year-old: When is the appropriate time going to come for you to leave power?
MUSEVENI: I said I would have one term. This term. My inclination is that I should retire after this.
MWESIGE: Of course, the constitution allows you to have a second term. Would you think of having another term if things didn’t change, as you always say?
MUSEVENI: Well. Of course the constitution says I can have two terms and it would not be unconstitutional if did. But my inclination says I should serve this, then retire.


OBASANJO: Fellow Nigerians, I have absolutely no intention to impose myself on this country. When it was fashionable, and I was in a position to doso, I did not. While seeking the mandate to offer my service to thenation, I fully recognise the right of any qualified Nigerian to do the same. April 25, 2002.


NOW

MUSEVENI: I have been active in these struggles for 35 years I have used up one of two terms provided for in the constitution and as you have asked me, and since it is also my conviction that there is some more work to complete, I am willing to present myself as one of the candidates in the coming elections for two reasons; because I am not a deserter, I accept your challenge urging me to be a candidate the issue is not that without Museveni the army will stage a coup d’ etat, because these are our comrades [who] cannot turn against the people even if I retire.
