Is it Jonathan that carried their thumbs and forced all of them to vote Lyon?? Dickson failed and wanted to impose his stooge on the state. The people revolted and clearly said NO! Why is this too hard for some people to understand??

This man is clearly not properly educated, but he's definitely still better than Dickson who struggled to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of Bayelsa for 8 years!

|Politics / Olimpotic Meristemasis: Ayade Presents 1.1trn Budget Estimate For 2020 by Barondenigeria: 1:56pm On Nov 21, 2019|
By Ike Uchechukwu
Cross River state governor, Prof Ben Ayade has presented the 2020 budget estimate of 1.1trillion naira tagged budget of “Olimpotic Meristemasis” to the State House of Assembly.
Ayade has also abolished payment of tax by small scale entrepreneurs like barbing saloon, welders, stylists amongst others.
According to him, he would rather tax his brain than tax the people, so no more daily payment of N500 by Okada riders and taxis but they will now pay 1000 and 2000 monthly for Okada and taxis respectively adding that all civil servants whose salaries were below 100,000 naira were also exempted from paying tax.

Presenting the budget on Thursday on the floor of the State House of Assembly, Ayade said all low income earning people in the state were hereby exempted from taxes including civil servants whose salaries were less than 100,000 naira as well as stylish, saloon operators, welders and more.
His words: “All low-income earners are hereby exempted from taxes, including civil servants who salaries are below 100,000 nairas.
“The budget is an audacious step towards reducing recurrent expenditure and focus on increasing capital expenditure with Capital expenditure standing at 911 billion while recurrent stands at 188 billion which is 82.8% and 17.2 % respectively.
“Nigerians must realise that any state whose budget is driven by the envelop size has limited vision. There are two ways budgets are derived in business or public sector management, it is either as an expression of ambition or an expression of your envelope size.
“The expression of the ambition of the progressive agenda set for Cross River does not allow me the agony to adopt an envelope size budget. The value of our projects have not been commoditised into value , with the intellectual capacity we have reduced a lot of waste,” he said.

|Politics / Why Nigerians Must Vote Out APC In Kogi And PDP In Bayelsa- Opinion by Barondenigeria: 7:36am On Nov 16, 2019|
When Yahaya Bello was nominated governor of Kogi state in January 2016 by the John Odigie-Oyegun led APC, following the demise of the party's flag bearer in the previous election, Mr. Abubakar Audu, little was known of the youthful governor's abilities.
A time when Nigerians were strengthening their voices in support of the #NotToYoungToRun bill, it was kairos for Yahaya Bello who was just 40 at the time of his inauguration.
On the 22nd of May 2018, a little over three years into the administration of Mr. Bello, Kogi state chapter of Nigeria labour congress (NLC) made shocking revelations before men of the press, accusing the state government of owing workers eight to 39 months salary arrears.
Down South in Bayelsa, the Nigerian union of local government employees accused the PDP led government in Yenagoa of owing its members 10 - 19 months salary arrears.
Despite Bayelsa's modest population and excess federal allocation, the PDP led state government was one of the firsts to reject the federal government's 30,000 Naira minimum wage for its own workers, claiming it was on the high side.
Not even teachers in Bayelsa were left out of the salary crisis, as the NUT (Nigeria union of teachers) accused the state government of owing its members 3 - 7 months arrears.
While workers groaned in Bayelsa, for more than three years, it was unprecedented hardship for Kogi civil servants.
As the pangs of Nigeria's recent economic down turn bit through their daily lives, hope remained far as several appeal to the Kogi state governor to consider the suffering of the masses fell on deaf ears.
In 2016, Yahaya Bello became Nigeria's first governor to purchase the bullet proof Lexus LX 570, valued at around 120,000,000 Naira. There was backlash on social media, with people calling out the governor for his insensitivity but it seemed the average Kogite was less concerned about the governor's choice of car.
By April 2019, ahead of the coming election, the governor's office released a list of 110 achievements they claimed could be credited to Yahaya Bello. Among others, they include democratic humanist, epitome of power shift, unifier governor. Whatever the governor's office meant with those lines, perhaps only Kogites understand.
On the 10th of October 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari requested the Senate’s approval for the payment of N10 billion to Kogi State.
The president claimed the money would be used by the state government to settle local debts it incurred as a result of the projects executed on behalf of the Federal Government. Few days later, 1,500 luxury SUVs arrived Kogi state ahead of the governor's re-election campaign.
For nearly four years, there has been controversial as well as irrefutable evidence to support the notion that the governor of Kogi state substitutes the provision of public goods with handouts and political patronage.
As responsible Nigerians clamor for good governance in Bayelsa, we also call on Kogites to vote out the APC led government for the uncommon privation they have hammered on the confluence state for 4 years.
With an adult literacy rate of 62.8 in 2010, it is safe to say that Kogi state has got a fairly educated populace which we hope will influence today's elections positively. However, the State's tribal make up might still end up as the deciding factor in the outcome of the elections.

|Politics / What Are Your Rights As A Nigerian? by Barondenigeria: 3:21pm On Nov 11, 2019|
Citizens' right can simply be explained as a moral or legal entitlement to have or do something.
While many Nigerians are scared of exercising their rights as citizens, others do not have proper education concerning their constitutionally guaranteed rights.
As conscious and responsible citizens, it is imperative to know that the Nigerian constitution guarantees the following universally recognized fundamental rights of citizens:
RIGHT TO LIFE
This is the right of every Nigerian to exist and that no one should deprive any Nigerian the right to live.
RIGHT TO DIGNITY AND LIBERTY
No Nigerian should be deprived of freedom or subjected to inhuman/degrading treatment.
RIGHT TO PRIVACY
The privacy of Nigerians, especially in relation to their homes, correspondence, telephone conversations and telegraphic communications, are guaranteed and must not be infringed upon.
RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF THOUGHT, CONSCIENCE AND RELIGION
Any Nigerian can practise or propagate his religion or belief.
RIGHT TO FAIR HEARING
In the determination of an individual’s civil rights and obligations, a person shall be entitled to a fair hearing within a reasonable time by a court or other tribunal established by law and constituted in such manner as to secure its independence and impartiality.
RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
Nigerians are entitled to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference.
RIGHT TO OWN PROPERTY
Every Nigerian has the right to acquire and own landed property anywhere in Nigeria.
RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF ASSEMBLY AND ASSOCIATION
Nigerians have the right to freely assemble and associate with other persons. They may also form or belong to any political party, trade union or other association as they desire.
RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT
Every Nigeria is entitled to move freely throughout the country and to reside in any part of it.
RIGHT TO FREEDOM FROM DISCRIMINATION
No Nigerian is to be subjected to restrictions based on the fact that he/she is a member of a particular community, ethnic group, place of origin, sex, religion, political opinion, or circumstances of his/her birth.
