With time it will start making sense to them. Let's wait and see how it will all pan out in a few years to come.
The decay is deep. We must tell ourselves the truth. We have passed the level were a written set of rules will straighten our paths. What we need now is someone who will deliberately and purposefully hold everyone to account for their actions and inactions. One who does not know tribe, religion and region. To move this nation forward we need a man that is blind to our pettiness and trivial disposition.

Absolutely!!

I even suggested we have an atheist president, you could have imagined their reactions.

But, thinking about it, I don't think we have enough to repel foreign interference since we're at the moment indebted to them.

If it's in their interest that we practice democracy, I'm not sure we can withstand their pressure.

Generational cowards whom the Jan 15 boys (including some of their own) saved from a purported "Invasion" that was to be unleashed on their region in 2 days time are talking about history.

The core west would have been completely islamized today just like parts of the Midwest like Ekiti and kwara

The civil war waged Islam completely from the south till today.

Ibos are rebels but yorubas are conquered cowards.

I am guessing Zik, Ojukwu and Kanu are Yorubas grin

They ALL claimed to be Igbo Leaders and ALL ran away from battle after chest-beating.

According tto you, they are efulefu Yorubas tongue tongue tongue

Bow down to Yoruba since you admit they are forever your masters cheesy

The best candidates were this evening on # ThePeoplesDebate ,
but the truth remains that no matter how salutary, ambitious,
poignant, effulgent and clearcut your ideas may be, they are
unachievable with our present structure and with the 1999
constitution.
Even world's best leaders like Lee Kuan Yew, Barrack Obama
and Thomas Sankara put together, will fail woefully in Nigeria
with our current atavistic structure.
Nigeria has a structural problem which must be solved
structurally.
# Mycountry
You sound learned. This system of government alone promotes corruption, delays government activities with the so-called division of powers and bureaucracy, as also seen in the US government shutdown. Yes the government is a problem, but the system of government we practise promotes that problem. A strong arm kind of politics is needed.

Mr. intelligent man, I will not allow you to drown the truth by provoking me to insult you hence the facts will not be known


firstly.... you claim: Who brought America out of a recession when they were losing 700,000 jobs per month and the Dow stock index was experiencing its largest landslide since the Great Depression

Obama is on record to be the only US president before, during and after the great depression (which was worse than what happened in 2008) whose administration never reached or exceeded 3% GDP, and he made bail outs to stem the tide of the recession at what cost? listen Mr. Intelligent man, it is STUPIDITY for instance to spend 3 million naira to repair a 10 year old car, which you can normally buy for 2 million naira brand new. Obama racked up $10 trillion DEBT -- I mean 10 trillion with a "T" to shore up companies who were not worth what was given them as bail out and they failed example... e.g. Solindra that got $500 million from the tax payers at the direction of Obama and filed for bankruptcy the very next 2 weeks ...With the exception of GM, how good was the "cash for clunkers" program? what was the ROI on that $600 billion first "porkulus" stimulus? your great leader threw in quantitative easing and threw in hundreds of billions of dollars to retrieve jobs that even if you had to cut a full check for those employees who lost their jobs, (like they earned when they were working) one will still not spend half of what Obama wasted to further his socialist agenda of wealth redistribution. Not done, Obama provided "golden parachutes" or mouth watering severance payments to CEO's of failed institutions as a part of the bail out.. PEOPLE are you with me? these payouts was extended to UAW (United Auto Workers) union leaders, as they were and are still a key democrat voting block in Michigan and the great lakes region as a thank you gift for electing Obama in the midst of an economic crisis.

My little question for you is: How come Obama's time, when America did not suffer the worst economic depression in US history, but borrowed the same amount in 8 years - equalling the amount borrowed by all 43 Presidents before him combined and he still was unable to reach exceed 3% GDP in 8 years ?? he OBAMA WAS THE ONLY PRESIDENT IN 8 YEARS NEVER TO EXCEED 3% GDP in 8 years. America was technically still in recession when Obama left office, because the average jobs created in his time were mostly part time, seasonal jobs not exceeding 32 hours a week because the ACA (Affordable Care Act - mandated companies to provide health insurance for their workers if they are full time workers) - For instance, small companies which makes up a vast majority of the private sector could not do that as it will affect their ability to remain in business, to even pay wages- all cut work hours of their employees in order to escape the individual mandate that came with the 40-hour work week, and that increased the poverty index. Even Jimmy Carter, a democrat president regarded as an economic failure in recent US history exceeded 3% in his time in office------- I will stop here regarding OBAMA's economic record: YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN LIES but you cant CREATE YOUR OWN FACTS!!!

do not forget, the democrat policies of inclusiveness at any cost led to the 2008 recession when Bill Clinton's administration introduced sub prime mortgages that enabled people who were not financially qualified to buy homes. This reminds me of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. when these unqualified home owners were unable to pay, the institutions granting these loans lost liquidity and their investors were left with pennies on the dollar of their assets and that shook the system and the financial market came to a screeching halt! Known casualties of this fallout were Lehman Brothers, Washington Mutual, Wachovia --- etc. So many companies which existed more than a hundred years dissolved into flames because of the quasi-socialist policies of the democrat party.

secondly and last: Who decimated alqaeda in Afghanistan & Yemen stopping them from ever regrouping and actually KILLED OSAMA BIN LADEN. [/b]The mastermind of the worst ever terrorist attack on American soil

hahahahaahahahahaahaahahaha... please permit me to laugh before I start answering you. let me start with Bin Laden killing. OBL was killed because the US has been working on intelligence provided by Khalid Sheik Muhammed (KSL) even before Obama was elected. He made confessions of how to capture OSAMA because he was water-boarded in the last days of the Bush administration. All credit should go to VP Dick Chenney for allowing that to happen because the technique ensured that vital information was RETRIEVED from KSL was criticized by Obama from day 1 of his presidency that he was against torture. I am not for torture in the broad sense but if Obama was President from 9/11 to the day Osama was killed by our brave Seals, that achievement will not happen, because KSL would not have confessed, and Bin Laden will be alive today.... Also, Obama gave a go-ahead for the raid, he did not partake in the raid.... he has to give a go-ahead because the military chiefs and intelligence community already zeroed in on OBL and there was no way he could say NO, dont take him out. It is just like your child is crying of hunger and your wife says, PAPA bomboy, can I give junior food so he can stop crying? and you say Yes, feed him---- that does not means you should be jumping all around taking credit for feeding the child, the mother should because she prepared the food and she is actually doing the feeding and not you!

for the sake of time and space... AL-QAEDA defeated? the same AL-QAEDA that killed the American ambassador in Libya under Obama's watch? The man was crying for help but Obama refused to send troops to protect him because he was busy lying in the re-election year that Al Qaeda has been defeated, so if he sends troops, Americans will realize Al-Qaeda was still around and that could hurt his re-election? This great leader of yours lied thru his teeth, that a cartoon of the prophet Mohammed by one man in California led to the death of Ambassador Stevens, when he knew it was Al-Qaeda that killed that fine gentleman? The same ISIS that was beheading westerners every day and showing it on TV like its just a normal thing? he drew a red line on Syria and backed off? He said he did not draw the line, the world drew a line grin grin grin grin the same Obama on whose watch San Bernandino killings happened and he kept making excuses? OBAMA told us when he was leaving that ISIS and North Korea were his legacies. He regretted that anyone who succeeds him has a mess in their hands already. We all know whats up with ISIS today because the rules of engagement was changed. My President Trump lived up his words that he was gonna bomb the sh it out of them and yes he did, not kid gloves Obama used for them. North Korea is not done yet, but at least thy are no longer testing or firing long range rockets which is a plus to the Trump administration!

guy let me stop here... I do not get paid unpacking your st up i di ty. whoever is reading with an OPEN mind knows America is better today that the days of your messiah.... and whenever you can not deal with contrary views, you label the person ipob. I am not from the east, I am from Warri, born and raised so try and see a psychiatrist to help you treat your phobia and hatred for IPOB. bye!

True talk bro.
It's a bit complicated really. I believe it's also in their best interest that we remain the way we are. Very selective and oppressive pple from the west. They condemn gaddafi for running an autocratic (stable) govt but embrace Saudi Arabia who does same, even worse. They want Asad out but pamper the likes of Paul biya to continue because he is their puppet. It's really complicated. Let's hope that with emerging power blocks like China and Russia, someone will rise someday and call their bluff. I stand with you on the atheist personality. Too much hypocrisy. ..

Very apt bro!

The era of slavery really did a lot of irreversible damage to our pride and psyche in general. Else what can really explain our willful submission to those manipulative imperialists?

it's funny really. they sell us guns and tanks to kill ourselves and set up a court in the Hague to try us for war crimes. they set up the United Nations that is more interested in who heads a govt of a sovereign nation than one which will prevent the war from happening thru equity and justice.
ever wondered what this world will look like without war and terrorism? that's not what they want. they need a reason to remain relevant and continue in their master slave relationship. funny, really funny..

Of course! And the more you look at it, the more pissed you get.

So, long as there are people benefiting from the effects of terrorism, we'd never see its end. The heavy budget allocation to security makes this succinctly clear.
