igbo boy is one frustrated mofo. the guy is so lost he can't even get his facts right. ACN isn't a one-state party.

hate all you want on acn, fashola's progress is due to continuing on the foundation his 'drug baron' god father laid
his being governor is because of tinubu's judgement
we all had our doubts when he was first elected into office
i always laugh when people talk about chime, amaechi and akapbio
have we all forgotten that amaechi had to fight for his mandate? he is not there because of the pdp, but in spite of the pdp
we can all also remember the rofo rofo between chime and the local pdp chapter
pdp is not a party for achievers
as for that thug called akpabio . . .

Why must Fashola abandone ACN for PDP just to be president Why can't ACN be strong enough to clear PDP from ASO Rock Must every president come from PDP? Are we now Practicing one party System
Beside 2015 is a war the Northerners and the South East are to fight,both claim is their right to rule in 2015 let watch and see what happens maybe that will bring about the next and final civil war that will determine NIGERIA TO BE OR NOT TO BE. South West will wait till 2023 if there will be one NIGERIA THEN,everything depends on how 2015 presidential Elections is handle or else AMERICAN PROPHECY ABOUT NIGERIA NOT EXISTING BEYOND 2015 WILL MATERIALISE.

Quote form ekt_bear:
I'm not too optimistic about Fashola 2015. The country doesn't really work in a manner conducive to a guy like him being president.
I'll support him if he runs of course, but he'd have to be considered a long shot.
The most sensible post of yours i have ever come accross, if you keep posting like this, i bet it is better than all those tribal stuff you mostly engange yourself with, and leave the other dumbs ( they know themself) to continue dumb typing all the time

You've got fine opinion here. But 'Occultist' is not the right ID for u.

Only a naive observer of politics would even suggest the possibility of Fashola becoming president in 2015. As you have rightly pointed out, no other platform can help him achieve that except the PDP. And that being the case, have we so quickly forgotten the bitter fight for 'zoning' that preceded/characterized Jonathan's ascent to the precidential seat? It is as sure as death that, if Jonathan decides to step down in 2015, ONLY the North (and by a long shot, the South East) would qualify for the presidential ticket. After OBJ's 8 years in office, it wouldn't get to the South West again until at least 2027.

Just as millions of ACN & APGA voted for PDP Pres candidate simply on prejudice and Sentiments, likewise atleast 40 Million of REAL registered voters will elect Fashola in 2015 IF he doesn't dissappoint in this second term.
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by rhymz(m): 7:44am On Jun 04, 2011|
As much as I like Fashola and believe he will do very well as president,however, I will only lend a support to him in the presence of fairness and equity.
Nigeria is a very complex country and people's allegiance are most often than not tied to their regions and tribes first before any other concern, hence the sharing system and culture in Nigeria.
It will be grossly insensitive for our yoruba brothers to at this point-after they have let OBJ use their slot as president with the support of other regions to be clamouring for another shot when there are seriously some other regions yet to use their turn.
I mean, this whole thing goes beyond fashola and his good heart for development, it is not like Fashola is the only person that can move Nigeria forward, there are as well excellent administrators from other regions too who have been able to utilize their meagre accounts(both fed and IGR) to achieve very worthy developments in their states. Enugu state and Rivers always come to mind. I am even more awed by Enugu's. Am sure if they have thesame access to cash like Fash they will equally do excellently well like Fashola even better as they wont need to look over their shoulders for a Tinubu like Uncle Fash does.
Before anyone begins to drum support for anybody, let justice and fairness be their guard, an Igbo presidency may not seem imminent now because of political calculations and considerations but in fairness and considering other regions sentiments, Fashola will be president after other regions too have been given thesame opportunity as was given his region. I would rather he is appointed to serve as a minister in the government by then to keep him relevant till the time when he will be better positioned to be president thab go against people's sense of fairness and equity, I realy want him too to be president but on fair grounds.

Yes, nice. Fasola will be smart to know this. He who come to equity must come with open hand. And I urge ACN/SW to support the SE just as the SE supported the SS. Time for South solid alliance starts in 2015, when Chime or Rochas will run for presidency!
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by Akanbiedu(m): 8:13am On Jun 04, 2011|
Funny how people still believe its their votes that make Nigerian president.

haha does igbo boy gives a phock? Nope
2 phocks? NOPE
3? nah dawg , You are right ACN isn't a one party state but is a tribal/regional part son, Now u can take that to the bank
K'am ga ta Azu
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by BetaThings: 8:57am On Jun 04, 2011|
rhymz:I hate Obj. But it is also grossly insensitive to blame Yorubas who did everything to stop Obj in 1999. Obj even lost in his ward. What more could they have done?
And why is it that we decided that we know better than the Yorubas when they showed that they didn't want Obj
However I agree that other regions deserve a shot before the Yorubas come back into it
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by Desola(f): 9:00am On Jun 04, 2011|
I have said it before and I will re-iterate that the SW would never vote for a SE prsident. Forget the tribal enmity on this site for a second and think objectively.
How have the SE proved to Nigeria as a whole that they are capable of running a government effectively. Don't bring Nollywood(they are totally tribal) or spare parts and that "we are the economic powerhouse of Africa" bile into this now. We are talking politics and good governance here now. Who is capable of picking up the mantle and please do not bring Amaechi into this as we all know that he is a SouthSoutherner whose quota is currently in use. Who would you front and why? Why do you think the SW should vote for him/her without throwing the "we are southerners" hogwash or "let's stand against the North" nonsense.
Tell me why we should vote the SE and not NC.
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by igboboy1(m): 9:10am On Jun 04, 2011|
Arrant Nonsense, Why do my SE brothers have to prove to Nigerians especially those from SW about capability? That is definitely not a criteria to be used while running for president of this banana republic, I have said it before i dont see an Igbo president doing wonders in office!! ah ah u think it is only Obj, etteh and bankole that like money? I hate to burst your bubble an igbo man aint no saint nor Angel, So SW can steal money, North can steal money then if it is igbo man you want him to act like St Paul , you must be leaving in lala land,
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by Calculia: 9:11am On Jun 04, 2011|
Trust me, when the right south east candidate emerge to run for president, you will be the first in line voting to make him your president,believe it.

Has Fashola told any of you he is interested in running for president? Agreed some would like to see him in that role but it is Nigeria's tragedy , not Fashola's , if the Lagos Governor signifies an interest and he is not voted for due to lack of political sophistication and because he fails to join the PDP. let the journey of 2 years continue to take 50 years. That is Nigeria's headache not Fashola's . It is not him and his family enduring unbearable and self-induced poverty stemming from the myopia and lack of political sophistication that leads Nigerians to vote for the candidate of a "National Party".
Fashola , IMO, is a principled and loyal man who is unlikely to compromise himself and his principles because he wants to be President. Nigerians should note that Fashola , unlike Saraki et al, is one of the least likely politicians to engage in the rofo-rofo side of politics. For that reason alone he may even not contend. Okonjo-Iweala, Ezekwesili and Ribadu , as distinguished technocrats , are all now in respected international jobs. The demand for Fashola , on the International stage, will even be greater. With America and Europe gushingly waxing lyrical about the lagos Governor , the sky is the limit for Fashola. He is certainly not a "do or die" politician and a prestigous international position might be sufficiently attractive to him. It is about service for men like Fashola and Ribadu - not neccessarily about gaining certain positions at all cost. This is why Nigerian politicians should understand that "goodness is its own reward".

@poster, how could you have of fashola decamping to pdp because of being the president? for your information , fashola is not
one of he desperate politicians you mentioned.
, and for those who have not seen what fashola is doing, i pray you will never see it. ameeeeeeeeeeeeen
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by igboboy1(m): 9:44am On Jun 04, 2011|
Unfortunately for fashola he is carrying the sins of the father (in reference to past leaders) who came from only two regions and didnt do anything about the state of the nation. So others are joining the band wagon and clamouring for their own share of the pie. In a perfect word Fashola is the man to beat, but he's crime is coming from the SW now is that not a silly thing? Well na banana republic we dey so so all i can say is LIFE IS NOT FAIR
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by jason123: 9:47am On Jun 04, 2011|
Another very good statement.
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by igboboy1(m): 9:53am On Jun 04, 2011|
Why didnt ACN sweep in 1999 and denied his agents power in SW? To non SW's it smells fishy that the SW vocally opposed OBJ during his tenure but was only when he was out of power that they decided to act on those vokings of yesteryears (surprising when a non SW guy is in power hmmmm) interesting
As jay z go say "we dont believe u, u need more people"
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by lakode(m): 10:00am On Jun 04, 2011|
Really I don't get what the argument on this tread is about , I thought we all agreed(infact the Igbo's unanimously) that zoning is dead .So if zoning is dead then the next President can be from any part of the country
This exactly is the problem with most Nigerians lack of foresight, During the PDP primaries most Nigerians insisted Zoning should die(RIP Mr ZONING), Since the North didn't get the chance to finish their 8 years (due to Yaradu's demise followed by the Death of zoning) then we should all be ready for the President to come from any part of the country, and personally(not been tribal) I think the major tribe with the least possibility of producing a Nigerian President in the foreseeable future are the Igbos(No insult intended),But the Igbo's need to look inward and solve the personal grudges most have against each other(all Igbos feel they are better than the next man)
NB all I wrote is my personal conviction , any abuse or rant BACK TO SENDER
and lastly EKO ONI BAJE O

GOD WILL SEND CURSES ON ANY ONE THAT CURSES YOU FOR THIS POST!!!! MAY GOD CONTINUE TO REWARD YOU AND CONVICT YOU EVEN MORE TO ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH!!!! AMEN!
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by rhymz(m): 10:09am On Jun 04, 2011|
BetaThings:you are very correct about that but the fact still remains that he has already served his tenure for the region.
Desola:I feel insulted when people write with careless abandon like this above. What exactly did the SW do in 1999 to show that they were capable of running an effective government? Besides, it remains to be seen that Obasanjo who is from the SW ran an effective government in the entire eight years he spent in Aso Rock.
You drip with a false sense of entitlement like the SE has to prove anything to the SW.
You arrogantly arrogate to your region some fictituos super-human beings with the magical wand to take Nigeria to the next level, forgeting that the SW and the North have dominated the presidency in the last 30yr or so and yet this is what they htave to show for it, Nigeria as we have it today.
Don't let your blind support for your tribes men makw you spew rubbish, just as the SW can boast of Fashola, the SE can boast of Chime, Okonjo-iweala, Ezekwesili, Dora Akunyili, Ngige just to mention a few. No one region has a monopoly of good people and excellent administrator. Who emerges as Nigeria's president is a matter of political calculations, consideration and acceptability not just because you are a great administrator, there is a limit to where such claims can lead you.
Folks like you make others say Fashola is overrated, if I was not living in lagos, I probably will think Fashola sprayed a whiff of his magic perfume and lagos became newyork. He is trying no doubt but there is also the media factor and that can also work with the likes of Chime and co, if they so wish.
Stop insulting people's intelligence by asking for a proof, what a childish rant. Come 2015, thesame Tinubu will dine with both SE and North candidates if it is obvious to him that he has no choice than to align with one of them that best serves his intersets, it is never about "your white and black" administrative prowess cos that can easily be worked out.

igbo boy:. . LoL you have a cunning way of stating the obvious, I was going to hit on that but decided to chill out.
They still benefited from him anyway.
igbo boy:You are so on poinr here. Adding anything else to this truth will spoil it, make I leave am so.
|Re: Fashola Can Be President In 2015; I Don't See Him Getting There Under Acn by ektbear: 10:30am On Jun 04, 2011|
Fashola's best bet is to hope that the PDP selects an unpopular northerner as their candidate (Sambo, perhaps?), and that the ACN forms some sort of alliance with a northern block strong enough to defeat the PDP. Serve as VP for 8 years, then in 2023 run for president.
But even this is a longshot.
And I'm not sure he is really interested in serving as VP to someone who is probably going to be inferior to him anyways. . .
