|Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by BIGERBOY1: 8:37pm On Jan 01, 2012|
I adapted this from another poster, lets cultivate the habbit of keeping our leaders accountable.
1. You Prmoised to rule for only one term (reference http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-12339017)
As a man of your words or rather as you want to make us believe, PLEASE stick to this plan and pledge.
I sincerly hope we will not have political jobbers, groups like Youths Earnestly Ask for Jona, Dbanj, Lagbaja, Sunny Ade all singing for your second term bid? I sincerly hope also, you will not come out and openly deny you didnt make such promise or statements as you did about the zoning saga.
2. You promised a consitutional role for Traditional Rulers!!! I am short of words but Nigerians are waiting
3. On March 17th 2011, in Dutse the Jigawa statte capital, you promised:"If I win the election, within my four years in office, I will establish domestic airports in all the states without airports, WE ARE WAITING.
4. In Nasarawa, at the flagoff of your campaign you promised at least a university in every state including building specialist almajiri schools to shore up education in the North so as to eradicate illiteracy. The Almajiris are waiting o!
5. On February 8th in Ibadan, the day you called some people "rascals", you promised to create jobs and improve the power sector. The OYO people and indeed all Nigerians are waiting!!!
6. On Feb 9th, you were in Bauchi and you promised to intensify oil and gas exploration in the North-East as part of efforts to harness resources for economic development. Also you pledged to boost agriculture, power and water supply for wealth creation and revenue generation. Then you assured that projects such as the Mambilla hydro-electricity, Jada irrigation project and Kafin Zaki dam in Taraba, Adamawa and Bauchi would be pursued to boost agriculture and industrial development. Then you promised that your administration would establish two universities in the region. The NORTH EAST PEOPLE ARE WAITING,
9. You landed in Portharcourt on Feb 12 where you made alot of promises, maybe to woo your Niger Delta people. Be that as it may, you announced that the NNPC, in partnership with the private sector, would establish a petrochemical plant in the Niger Delta (you didnt state where exactly). You promised the plant will create job opportunities for the Niger Delta youths. Then you went ahead to promise the implementation of Local Content Law and Petroleum Industry Bill. In case you cant remember when you made all these, cast your mind back to the stampede that claimed some lives (where your wife called them martyrs).
10. In Kaduna- You promised massive transformation of the agricultural sector through construction of large dams and distribution of one million metric tonnes of fertilisers for the 2011 farming season (The rains are here already, so fulfil your promises o)
You also pledged to establish Almajiri model schools to address the challenges of the Almajiris.
11. In Benue-You promised to revolutionise agriculture and establish industries in the country through a five-year plan (We need that Plan now so we can keep track, the five years have started counting already)
You also promised to complete the irrigation project in Otukpo. Then you promised that the second Niger Bridge and the Benue Bridge projects will be worked on in the next four years. I think its better to start now so by April 2015, we trust you would have completed it.
12. February 17th, you were in Plateau where you made shocked the entire country with amazing promises. First of all, you pledged to refocus on the solid mineral development of the state and make it one of the key revenue sources in Nigeria. The Plateau people are banking on you.
Mr President, You promised to build more dams and complete ongoing ones, so as to boost agricultural growth.
In addtion you promised to complete the Vom-Manchok-Jos road to boost economic links between Plateau and Kaduna states. Yoy left the state and the Plateau people have been happy ever since and now that you have won, they are waiting
13. Mr President on Feb 21, you were in Kogi. You promised among other things promised that the dredging of the River Niger and Lokoja-Abuja road dualisation would be completed very soon. THE KOGI PEOPLE AND INDEED NIGERIANS ARE HOPING AND WAITING
14. In Kwara State on Feb22, you pledged that the irrigation project in Shonga would be completed soon to boost the commercial farming activities of the New Nigeria Farmers in the area. Mr president, remember you also said the Jebba-Mokwa road and Jebba bridge would be given adequate attention to ease transportation in the area. Kwarians are waiting!
15. On February 24, Mr. President, you pledged to rehabilitate ALL ailing industries in Aba. I believe all Abians are hoping on you to provide the enabling environment to do their businesses, you must keep your promises,
16. Mr.President, on Feb 25th in Anamabra you said there is a plan to build a power station in the state, assuring that within the next four years your administration would construct and rehabilitate ALL federal roads leading to Anambra as well as the South East. You equally to provide potable water to the densely populated Onitsha and Nnewi cities and tackle erosion in the South-East. To tell you the truth, Mr. President, Anambrians are banking on you!
17. In Ebonyi state, you promised to dualise the Enugu-Abakaliki federal highway in addition to establishing a secretariat for ALL Federal government's agencies and parastatals in Ebonyi. Mr. president, The people of Ebonyi has never had it so good since the creation of their state. Now, you have promised them the good life. Please keeep to your words!
18. In Niger state, you promised the more power generation. Perhaps the most important aspect of your promises is that your government would map out a five-year strategic plan for road projects. (Please we are waiting for the Plan NOW!!!!)
19. On Feb 27, you were in Asaba, the Delta state capital, which happens to be my state. On that fateful sunday, you revealed that “The NNPC is developing a new programme that will absorb about 5,000 youths, ”, Mr. President, Deltans are delighted at this REVELATIONS. While that number is a far cry from the number of unemployed youths in the state, at all at all na winch (as we say in Warri), so Deltans are waiting.
20. On March 2nd, you were in Ondo where you pronmised that roads and other basic infrastructure across the states will be developed in four years. In addition you also promised the exploitation of the vast bitumen deposits in the state for national economic development and employment generation. The Ondo people are waiting. Your Four years have started already. You must start now.
21. On the same day, March 2nd, your campaigbn train was in Ekiti state. While there, you promised that more than N50 billion federal intervention projects were ongoing in the state. You can be rest assured that the Fayemi and indeed the entire Ekiti kete are waiting for you.
22. On March 9th, in Sokoto, you promised to rehabilitate the abandoned Shagari irrigation project as well as reviving the nation’s rail system and figh the menace of desertification in the country. Sokoto people have sufffered for too long. This is your time to redeem your pledge, Mr President. The clock is ticking!!!
23.The date was March 12th 2011 and you were in Ogun state.
Remember, the day you rode to Abeokuta through rail?
Yes, That was the day you promised an improved power supply before the end of the year through the Integrated Power Project (IPP) initiative.
You also pledged to build more refineries, encourage downstream activities, resuscitate rail transportation and create jobs. In case you have forgotten, that was the day that Gbenga Daniel (your South West campaign coordinator was booed by the Ogun people).
24.On March 14th, your campaign trained moved to Kebbi where you promised to establish a federal university next year (2012). You also promised to create jobs through science and technology, tackle environmental challenges and boost health care delivery.
25.Katsina, was your port of call on March 15 where you promised to enhance the living standard of Nigerians through implementation of people-oriented programmes that would provide citizens the necessary opportunities to realise their potentials.
In my opinion, this was just mere rhetorics as you did not make any concrete promises. or did you have the premonition, you will lose in Katsina? I might just be right.
26.In Kano, you pledged to resuscitate the nation’s power sector and encourage the development of small and medium scale enterprises in the country while ensuring justice, equity and fair play in the polity.
Mr.President, Space will not allow me to list the deluge of promises in Lagos, Osun, Borno, Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Enugu, Imo, Taraba, Jigawa, Edo, Bayelsa and Zamfara states. If you can accomplish all your promises in the next four years, then you will go down memory lane as the best President ever.
I WISH U GOODLUCK MR PRESIDENT

Scammer president . . . LOL
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by emiye(m): 11:45pm On Jan 01, 2012|
An expose on the many promises of Goodluck! If only promises were horses, goodluck will ride.
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by samstradam: 12:23am On Jan 02, 2012|
It's practically been 8 months, and not one of those over 30 promises have been met yet.
This is what happens when any people are stupid enough to vote on predominantly ethnic and religious sentiments. Goodluck Nigerians, goodluck.
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by 2mch(m): 12:27am On Jan 02, 2012|
And people expect this move to generate some kind of miracle. Please someone remind me what promise he has kept or fulfilled. It is time for him to step down. I think he has come to teach Nigerians a lesson not to vote on sentiment but content of what the leader can bring to the table. A leader that acts in the best interest of his people and rises above greed, corruption and party politics. He has shown that he doesnt know the meaning of all this. Government has been grossly incapable of doing anything sucessfully. Lets take a look at the failure that is NNPC and then we can see where we are heading to. It is time for Nigerians to put an end to the lawmakers overbloated salaries, and the sheer disregard for law and Nigerians by GEJ
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by Gbawe: 12:37am On Jan 02, 2012|
This is what I said on another thread. Not a single one of the populist promises he made to win the election has been delivered. Instead we have many sinister, anti-people and dark policies/decisions he never mentioned being chased and delivered with urgency and absolute ruthlessness i.e fuel subsidy removal, tenure elongation, "leaner government not possible", NNPC to turn around refineries within 24 months, etc, etc. Abeg, let folks enjoy their "fresh
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by samstradam: 1:04am On Jan 02, 2012|
I can't really understand Nigerians, just look at the list!! For a country known for our prowess in 419 and all things associated with deception, you'd think we'd be able to spot a scam artist a mile away . . . .look at that list. . . .Practically everything their is cosmetic, very little policy thrust . . . . and these are the same people that watched all the Obama debates spellbound. . . . educated illiterates
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by BIGERBOY1: 1:26am On Jan 02, 2012|
If ask this question pple will start asking for link. Where did GEJ and the PDP get the thousands of dollars spent bribing delegate at the PDP primaries?
The millions of nairas shared at state and local govt to touts and the neighbour2neigbour movement during election. Then I workd in a bank at damaturu, see as busses were loading pple to our branch to open accounts just to get a share of the N2N loot. Even at remote yobe, there was enough PDP loot to reach there.
Then you guys wonder why the subsidy bill is over 1.2trillion in less than a year as compared to just a little above 200 billion in previous years.
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by dustydee: 9:42am On Jan 02, 2012|
To be fair to him it will take a while to fulfil some of those promises, but the problem have have is promises made that he does not intend to keep.
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by anishe(m): 10:01am On Jan 02, 2012|
Do you expect this foolish man to accomplish all these? May be in your wildest dreams. To me, Nigeria has no president, only a retardeeen at the helms of affairs.
I weep for my dear country.
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by dvee2: 10:02am On Jan 02, 2012|
This is what you expect the opposition parties to be pointing out so as to challenge the president to deliver. However,they are also looking incapable ,unorganised and not ready for leadership.
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by baslone: 10:02am On Jan 02, 2012|
PDP needs money!
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by omokidew: 10:07am On Jan 02, 2012|
Any Government policy on oil whether subsidy,deregulation or what ever shit i dont understand will always be perfect for a nation.The two prominent things that make things go wrong is corruption and greed.
Even at the current price,fuel price in Nigeria is still low compared to prices in the US and UK
Subsidy or No Subsidy,the problem with Naija is leadership.
It would make more sense if protests were staged to drag incompetent leaders out of office than protest against economic measures.
Its time we drag down our over paid senators and other government officials who wants to live an American lifestyle even though our GDP is less than 1% of America's GDP,
1) One barrel of Crude oil = 42gallons or
, 2) Our Refineries (i.e 4) Installed
(combined) capacity = 445,000
, barrels per day
3) Actual refineries capacity due to
ageing equipment = 30% i.e. 133,500
barrels per day
4) . . 133,500 barrels = 21.2 million litres
5) Local required consumption (F.O.S) =
6) It means that even our MORIBOND
refineries can actually meet our local
consumption need of petroleum.
7) The cost structure of crude oil (i.e.
Qua Iboe Crude Oil) production;
- Findings / development - $3.5
- Production cost - $1.5
- Refining Cost - $12.6
- Pipeline/transportation - $1.5
- Distr/bridging fund Margin -$15.69
True cost of one litre of petroleum
anywhere in Nigeria;
- Total sum cost = $34.8
- 1ltr cost = $34.8/159 litres = $0.219
- Naira equiv. 0.219xN160= N35.02k
- Add Tax N5 + N35.02 = N40.02
9) Let FGN refute the above composition
and if not, they should tell us how
they came about N65/litre.
10) Locally refined products cannot be
sold at International price.
11) We really do not need FGN SUBSIDY
as there was NONE in the first place.
12) What is LACKING, is the WILL to
enforce LAW ON CORRUPTION.
We still stand a chance as a COUNTRY.

Am glad I wasnt fooled by these promises during the election. I just pity those that were fooled and wasted their time under the sun during the elections.
|Re: Keeping Them Honest: List Of Gej Campaign Promise(no Fuel Subsidy) by BIGERBOY1: 10:24am On Jan 02, 2012|
Omokidew, this thread is for GEJ promises to the masses and no fuel subsidy removal, so take ur analysis to the subsidy thread not here, if GEJ thought the Nigerian economy depended on this policy wasn't it worth alluding to even if it be vaguely during his campaign so that those that elected him know what they were electing?
I just think nigerians are inherently wicked to each other. Should a policy of this magnitude be shrouded in such secrecy as to when, how and why it is taking off on jan 1st?
