chngebeginwthme: Hahaha see painment, Sai baba 2019 jare you can wail me a river..
The painment is real for those parents who lost their children to the fatwa your barawo bubu issued to soak dogs and baboons in blood for his 2011 electoral loss. Those bereaved parents are truly wailing you and your All Poverty Congress, APC a river.
October1960: You are correct But this admin. Though has not delivered on their ambitious promises. The stealing we saw under PDP has lessened. GEJ was and remains an idiot or slowpoke that was really clueless and did not care about Nigerians. Some in this admin care but not able to do as needed plus the country is indeed broke after all the stealing and mismanagement since Obasanjo was Military President. Ask yourself why Danjuma has oil wells and other high ranking former leaders? Our problems are many and will take decades to unravel.
You are not clueless. You are super clueless, thinking that you are brilliant.
Why is no one asking why we are in recession despite budgets as follows:
stellx: “When he was accused of not possessing school certificate or its equivalent, Nigerians fired back that it didn’t matter and that they were satisfied if all he had was a mere Agege bread or NEPA bill tag. “Such was the ululation and sheer passion that when he was pronounced winner, one Nigerian actually walked from Lagos to Abuja in solidarity, while another rode a bicycle from Kaduna to Lagos.
“Unfortunately, all the promises and hopes of a better tomorrow have since become a mirage, reminding one of Julius Caesar’s tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” “He surprisingly exonerated a colourless, rudderless and corruption-laden NNPC that is not accountable to the Nigerian people.
cooltola: Restructuring is the answer o, Many Northerners are very comfortable without electricity by default, In fact most Hausa I know rarely watch TV , use battery powered radio and old nokia phone . Electricity is not priority to Nigeria Government, they see it as a luxury
All the northern leaders want restructuring.............when they need to offer the carrot to senseless, divided southerners for their votes.
sanusianangi: Hahaha hahahaha FFK that was den wen PDP refused to give him ministerial position GEJ became his enemy while now APC fail to go with him Buhari became his greatest enemy.... Political Prostitute
Just like the Asiwaju Asiwere national leader of the All Poverty Congress, APC
Obasanjo endorses APC moves, as party leadership visit Abeokuta 22.Dec 2013
The push by the opposition, All Progressives Congress, APC to dislodge the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP received a boost yesterday as former President Olusegun Obasanjo openly threw his weight behind the APC’s current initiatives. The APC leadership, comprising some national leaders and governors visited him Obasanjo in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Saturday to solicit the former president’s support for the party in the forthcoming elections. The party leaders, which started converging on Obasanjo’s Hilltop Mansion around 5:22pm, included former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the party’s Interim National Chairman, Bisi Akande; former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari; former speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Masari; former Borno State governor, Senator Ali Modu-Sheriff; Senator Osita Isunazor; Senator Bukola Saraki and Lai Mohammed. Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State came to the former president’s house in company with the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commissioin, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu; the former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode and others in a convoy of three black jeeps. Other APC governors at the meeting included Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Abdulfattah Ahmed (Kwara), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano) and Senator Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo). The Chairman of the New PDP, Kawu Baraje led some of his members and the former Kaduna State Chairman, Yero Makama, to the meeting. Presenting the party chieftains and the APC governors to Obasanjo during the opening of the meeting, Akande said the party was in support of the former president’s 18-page letter to President Goodluck Jonathan. The APC National Leader, Tinubu who alluded to Obasanjo’s contribution to the building of the Nigerian nation, lamented that the country was divided more than ever. Apparently referring to Obasanjo’s recent letter to Jonathan, he enjoined the former president not to shy away from speaking the truth. Tinubu added that the APC had resolved to rescue Nigeria, appealing to Obasanjo to lead the mission. “You’ve come out of tribulation and held the highest position in this country. We are here because of your courage. Nobody can say he has information more than you. You have surmounted a number of crises. Nigeria is divided more than before; to realise stable Nigeria, we want to encourage you to continue to speak the truth. We’re resolved and determined to rescue Nigeria. We want you as navigator,” he said.
Jesusloveyou: he want buhari to also invite him to come and chop
The way barawo bubu invited Sylva to come and chop
sunnyb0b0: Timipre Sylva, former governor of Bayelsa state, has retrieved 48 of his property which the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seized during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan.
According to PUNCH, some of the property are located in Wuse II and Maitama, highbrow areas of Abuja.
Back then, the commission had slammed 50 charges against the ex-governor and arraigned him before three federal high courts in Abuja.
Sylva, who contested the 2015 governorship election in Bayelsa, had accused the anti-graft agency of witch-hunt and political persecution.
The case was subsequently struck out.
A PUNCH correspondent, who visited some of the houses, observed that the inscription ‘EFCC, Keep Off’, on the gates or fences of the property, had been wiped off the buildings while some had been rented out.
The correspondent, who posed as a prospective tenant, was informed that the rent for the property ranged between N2.5m and N6m per annum.
Sixteen units of service apartments at Plot 1181 Thaba Tseka Crescent, off IBB Way in the Wuse II area of the federal capital territory (FCT), cost N6m per annum including a N1.5m service charge.
The building provides seven hours of power supply from a generator. One wing had been painted while the other was under reconstruction.
“When the EFCC sealed off this property, it was rotting away. However, it was re-opened a few months ago so we started to refurbish the property. We have repainted the property and we have started renting the apartments out,” a guard at the property was quoted to have said.
At a block of flats, which comprises nine units (six one-bedroom and three two-bedroom flats) located at 8, Sefadu Street, Wuse, Zone 2, PUNCH was told that the rent ranged from N1.5m to N3m.
“Immediately the EFCC inscriptions were erased, all the flats were taken. There is no vacant apartment now,” the security guard said.
At a property located at 8 Mistrata Street, Wuse II, Abuja, it was observed that the property was a hotel, which charged between N25,000 and N45,000 per room.
TheCable’s efforts to reach Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC’s spokesman, for the reaction of the commission did not yield the desired result as of the time this report was filed.
His telephone line was out of reach, but a text message was sent.
Thanks to barawo bubu and his 40 thieves cabal. Thanks to the All Poverty Congress, APC Thanks to the zombies who chanted sai chain-ge, chain-ge. Una don see the curse wey una bring unto our land
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, on Sunday evening boasted that he could provide uninterrupted power supply to Lagos residents between six and eight months.
Fashola spoke at the commissioning of 8.5 megawatts Lekki Independent Power Project (IPP), the fifth of such power projects in the last five years in the state.
The governor said the addition of the Lekki IPP was a testament to the fact that stable power does not require rocket science to achieve in the country.
While challenging power distribution companies in the state, Fashola said, “Let the Eko DISCOs sign a contract with me, giving part of their concessioning to the state government, in about six to eight months, there will be power in all homes in Lagos State,” Fashola said.
He added, “So, let no one say that he has no money to deliver power for the entire country. This is the limit to which the law allows us to do, but we have done this to make a statement that power can be generated. So, when they come with lies that power is impossible, you can tell them that we have power here; we make it possible”.
The project, courtesy of the state government, in partnership with Heritage Bank, is to serve Lagos State Water Corporations in Lekki Phase 1, Oniru, Victoria Island and Ikoyi, as well as over 25km of public lightening in the Lekki axis.
Commissioning the project, Fashola said he felt fulfilled with the conduct of youths that delivered the project, despite the difficulties in getting to the finishing point.
He said it also showed that the money to improve the Nigerian economy is here, “since we don’t need the World Bank to come and do this for us.”
Also, General Manager, Lagos State Electricity Board, Damilola Ogunbiyi, said the state had shown that reliable and sustainable power projects are possible through the youths.
Ogunbiyi said though it had been a successful story, the state was just scratching the surface in its “aggressive development plan” in the area of power.
Promoter of the project, Faruk Agoro noted that the new IPP was an innovative idea of world-class natural gas-fired power generating facility, sold to the government by youths and it was bought into, to support government institutions, especially in the area of water supply and security.
The Lekki IPP is 8.5 megawatts, with the capacity for 30 megawatts.
This brings the Lagos IPPS to a total of 47 megawatts of electricity in total, powering several public institutions around the state.
The generated megawatts is however still a far cry from the over 10, 000 megawatts power deficit in the state.
On his part, the State Commissioner in the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Taofeek Tijani, said the new addition was about continuity in public infrastructure programme of the state government
rasputinn: Anonimiiiii You my friend are a sight for sore eyes, wow it's been ages bro. Happy new year to you
Back to the topic, I agree with you about your view of Tinubu and his puppet governors, but I was just being realistic because of some internal "harmonization and healing" PDP has to do in Lagos to deal with the present in house polarization.You know the Modu Sherrif fiasco did more harm than good to the Lagos PDP family,also the preceding conditions that led to the impressive showing of Jimi Agbaje for PDP in the last governorship election are no longer there now,for instance PDP is not in charge at the centre so no direct or indirect financial assistance from there, 90% of the non APC grass roots mobilizers (especially from Amuwo Odofin,Festac, Akuwonjo ,etc )that worked for the success of their members into the LAHA and also rooted for GEJ/Agbaje have been lured into the APC Crowd pullers such as Aeroland have their eyes set on other ambitions outside Lagos.Its not a hopeless situation,but it will not happen automatically. There will have to be massive grass roots mobilization and funds drive and TIME, say two to three years of aggressive mobisation of members and resources as well as sensitization of the populace
Thanks for the summary. The mobilisation and fundraising from everyone at the grassroots level should be on now aggressively for any impact by 2019, which is just one year away.
lazygal: Don't be silly you sound childish...do what you are paid for ,its after all your hustle for survival.. Stay blessed
Stay blessed after you insulted me? You must be joking. What a bloody joker you are. An unserious person who thinks everyone is paid just as she is to support fraudsters, scammers and rogues like Bankole.
lazygal: I see no reasonable person amongst those vying for that sit ....I actually would not have minded dimeji bankole being groomed for that sit
Economic and Financial Commission have finally arrested outgoing Speaker Dimeji Bankole of the house of representatives. An EFCC source told Saharareporters moments ago that the agency operatives moved in today to arrest Mr. Bankole after the agency received intelligence was planning to flee tonight.
For the past one week, the EFCC and Bankole have been engaged in a tense stand off arising from Mr. Bankole's refusal to answer the agency's summons for interrogation.
rasputinn: Mmmmmm I'm a card-carrying member of PDP, but lets leave Lagos out of the target equation
Lagos is winnable but PDP is not a serious party unlike Ogbeni Ojuyobo and his slick propaganda machine with touts and thugs harassing and killing people to make their point. If PDP can start working NOW, mobilising people and exposing all the corruption, stealing and theft by JagaBandit and his boys since 1999, the All Poverty Congress, APC will be consigned to the dustbin of history in 2019. Did PDP not win five representative seats and Accord party won one in 2015 Asiwaju Asiwere of the Association of ProgreTHIEF Criminals, APC had to recruit his Oba of Lagoon to play the tribal card in order to avoid possible defeat. Nevertheless Jimi Agbaje made a good show.
APC 812,394 PDP 659,738
PDP needs to get serious, clean themselves up and engage political strategists to exploit each and every Achilles' heel of the rogues who have robbed Lagosians for the past two decades. It is possible but requires plenty of work.
frankyychiji: I agree with you totally! Nobody is above the law. If you can do the crime, then be ready to do the time. Failure to arrest Yusuf Buhari and charge him court would leave an indelible mark on the so called fight against corruption which his father swore to champion!
Remember Buhari told us that he belongs to nobody but belongs to everybody, the die is cast!
Yes, Nigerians have huge reservations about the ongoing fight against corruption by this government, but this particle matter would either make or mar his perceived clean image! 'Nuff said!
This was what Jonathan meant by saying that stealing is inside corruption but corruption is more than stealing only. Many illiterate, even though educated, Nigerians distorted the meaning and brought in a stark illiterate who ran from school to join the army. Now we are all gnashing our teeth.
Deo1986: Unfortunately, Nigerians will never realize that power belong to the people. The French revolution, the American revolution, the Russian revolution and the Chinese revolution should teach us a lesson; that unless we rise up as one to kick out the rubbishes we call governance. Unless we come up with one idea and forcefully enthroned it, we will remain were we are.
Never say never, bro. We are making slow progress already. Let us join and pitch our widow's mite of money, moments and materials. It CAN be well with us. It can be WELL with us.
auwalyau: "They have taken as lords beside Allah their rabbis and their monks and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship only One God (Allah)". Qur'an Chapter 9: verse 31
Stop confusing yourself and inadvertently helping consolidate belief in Jesus Christ. No wonder Muslims react violently to those who want to leave their faith and abhor any criticism as evident even here on the Muslim section.
