I said he should be given a Sack letter if he refuses to resign he should apply force. GEJ has the right to sack him after all OBJ sacked Ministers during his tenure and their was no process involved, so why would GEJs own be different?

You can still do your PPP job without having to advertise your ignorance so boldly and nauseatingly. Your ID was created just this week but this is not how to hit the ground running!

Haba! Keep quiet or simply show a draft of your subsequent posts to a JSS2 student before you hit the 'submit' button.

Politics / Re: No Administration Has Done Better Than Mine- Jonathan by Pukkah: 7:13am On Jan 10, 2014
atlwireles: his administration has in two years and eight months performed better than any administration past and present in the country.


Two years and eight months? See 'smartness' o.

Jonathan became the President in May 2010 after acting from February to May 2010.

If we remove the acting period, Jonathan's administration (total) will be 4 years old in May this year (2014).

He should stop using 2 years and eight months as the basis of assessing himself please. Or didn't he run federal budgets in 2010 and 2011?

Why can't he use 3 years 8 months or, if he wants to be very strict, 4 years?

Sanusi is not being punished for being patriotic but for breaching his oath of secrecy.

Understand it. Government and many businesses thrive on secrecy..

This is so funny.

How did Sanusi breach oath of secrecy?

No conjectures please.

And please don't come from the superfluous angle that he leaked a letter that had copies in the CBN, Finance Ministry, Presidency, etc to the press.

Some ignorant persons have also foolishly said that he should have discussed the issue verbally with Jonathan since he had access to him. Is a verbal conversation formal?

u kno wat? u r beggers and so, I dont see anytin wrong if u r treated as such.

Continue to talk carelessly and tactlessly. You are part of those creating problems for Jonathan.

I focused on the issues while you focused on tribalism. The tribalism has also led you to confuse or replace monthly allocation with federal budget.

The tribalism has blinded you to forget that the region you're calling parasites and beggars is where Sambo, Tukur, Jang, Suswam, Shema, Mark, etc come from.

The tribalism has eaten you so deep that you don't realize that Jonathan cannot win without that region of 'beggars'.

Choose one: 2015 or being on your own. You shouldn't be moving forward and backward at the same time. You can't scare anyone with separation.

And, oh yes, continue to talk carelessly and create more problems for Jonathan.

eGuerrilla: It is without hesitation that I revise my earlier position concerning Sanusi's much touted compliance.
This is clearly one CBN governor who knows how to fight the good fight. wink

Sanusi is too obstinate and sure-footed to be pushed out by Jonathan.

Sanusi has his failings but Jonathan is not handling this well at all. You must be very careful when you want to deal with a mosquito that's on your 'wetin call'.

The unremitted $10.8 billion takes the wind out of Jonathan's sail and also exposes the likes of Diezani Madueke, Okonjo-Iweala, Jonathan himself and the NNPC GMD.

For now, there's no way Jonathan can deal with Sanusi without undoing himself. Sanusi knows this and is using it to his advantage especially with the autonomy of the CBN which makes it impossible for Jonathan to single-handedly remove him.

Just imagine if this news item had been reported by Punch or Sahara Reporters, the PPP team would have been attacking the source rather than address the issues.

Now, they're are attacking Sanusi.

Who are the people that DID not make the remittances?

luvinhubby: When it`s obvious that Sanusi is an incompetent liar. Time has revealed that his `so called` bank reforms was a big sham.
The fact that he was dancing around figures (from 48 to 12) on the `missing` amount shows he is an incompetent CBN governor.
The report of the auditors on the issue has proven him wrong so he should do the needful cheesy and resign.

Two things:

"it has since been established that it was not $49.8 billion that had not been remitted to the Federation Account, but $10.8 billion, which was still in dispute and by any stretch of imagination was still a large sum."

"Sanusi also expressed his surprise to the president that he was the one being asked to resign instead of the president to ask those responsible for the non-remittance of the funds to resign."

Jonathan is in PDP. Obasanjo, who wrote that scathing 18-page letter to Jonathan is also in PDP.

Sule Lamido, Jigawa state governor, who said the following about Jonathan is also in PDP:

“To us we are on a rescue mission, because what we are seeing today is a mad man inside petrol filling station with lighter in his hand, the threat he poses is very lethal and would not spare anyone"

malele: All because of oil, this national conference, let everybody control the resources in his state, so that stupid people won't be coming to media to talk rubbish

What has been happening to the part you control?

Having competent people at the helm of affairs is more important than resource control.

See what someone wrote:

"Data released by the Energy Information Administration of the United States Department of Energy, showed that out of $1.15trillion released from oil by the 12 OPEC member states, Nigeria gets $90b, being the forth highest in the team in 2012.

The Federal Inland Revenue Service also collected about N5 trillion as tax in 2012. While in 2011 the total revenue from oil was $65b with N4.62 trillion realised as tax the same year. Yet with all these income from oil & tax, and increased in oil production of 2.4 million bpd with over $100 per barrel, Nigeria became a worst country for a child to be born and saddest people on earth with dilapidated infrastructure as our lots and ever increasing debts profile both foreign and domestic with nothing to show for it physically.

While some serious OPEC countries who also made great money from oil at the same time as ours are recording tremendious progresses."

Can you see competence in the way the country is being run?

@post

Kwankwaso is getting more direct by the day.

Check what he said in the past:

"Every rational person knows that we need change. The PDP used to be an umbrella for everybody but it is now a hat for one man. Some people are holding the country hostage so we must come together to rescue it.”

“Nigerians, irrespective of where they come from have being existing as friends and brothers for long but when somebody from the South-south took over the mantle of leadership of the country, things started drifting."

At another time, Gov Sule Lamido said this:

“To us we are on a rescue mission, because what we are seeing today is a mad man inside petrol filling station with lighter in his hand, the threat he poses is very lethal and would not spare anyone"

Sincere 9gerian:
Thrash. We do need an approval that existed only on paper. Yar Adua was not president for 3 months. He was there for atleast 2 and half years. If we didn't see anything concrete on ground within that period, I'm sorry the silly approval means nothing.

It is called 'trash' and not 'thrash'. May be Premium Times should also look at the papers you submitted to get the Chief PPP job.

In any case, what's trash to a fake doctor is sensible to intelligent and unbiased minds that are not paranoid or flapping about like a headless chicken in the face of an impending and inevitable loss of job.

Let's continue to clean up Nigeria. Start from whoever whether Tinubu, Buhari, Patience Jonathan, Obasanjo, Sanusi Lamido, Stella Oduah, Turai, Amaechi or Goodluck Jonathan. The order of exposing them does not matter.

Meanwhile, Jonathan's government should also drive the reform the Judiciary such that pending cases of Bankole, Fani-Kayode, etc and other suspects can be dispensed with on time. They should be sentenced or acquitted.

Again, the fight against corruption must start from somewhere.

This is politics, we are not kids. This is no longer fighting of a corrupt official. Those doing this are using her to get to Jonathan and her biggest crime is that she came from the wrong tribe. Tell me the last two people that was the minister of this portfolio before her and tell me something about them and why they weren't subjected to this kind of vitriol. This type of thing is why corruption festers in Nigeria, because people hide behind fighting corruption, but what they are doing is just being Nigerians-tribal warriors.
A simple research I did myself yielded that the said university did exist by had a change of name sometime ago, why can't people be a bit objective?

Which tribe is the wrong one again? Is there any Nigerian tribe that's free of corruption?

Obasanjo sacked a Yoruba minister or two because of corruption and the issue of tribalism didn't come up.

Corruption must be fought whichever way. If a tribe believes that Stella is being witch-hunted because of her tribe, the offended tribe should also expose all the corrupt officials that come from the tribe that's attacking Stella.

Her crime now seems to be that she dare transformed Akanu Ibiam airfield Enugu into an international airport. I may be wrong, but her problems seems to started with the upgrade of this airport.

The upgrade of Enugu airport to an international one started with President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua. Yar'adua not only approved the upgrade, he also approved the Enugu airport as a regional hub and approved the release of funds.

Perhaps we should make the conspiracy theory more sensational by saying Yar'Adua's problems (sickness and eventual death) also started with the upgrade of the airport?

I don't think it's the airport. She may have stepped on toes in some other areas. Sometimes, enemies come from unlikely places. What if some group from her state that would nominate another minister was the one behind this?

Besides, conspiracy or not, why can't the woman stay free of scandals? Was it the airport, or other imaginary persons, that goaded her into the armoured car issue and now the one of certificate(s)?

If Jonathan likes let him continue to hold on to her as if she's the only one that can serve as a Minister from the state.

The stain which she has brought to the administration and to Nigerians is too much.

Let me start from the bottom and then trace it up, first thing first, I am not defending the piece as you wildly assumed neither am I the author but just linking up events together to arrive at my conjectures, Nigeria remains an artificial creation of the British whereby their stooges from the North were delicately placed in 'control' you may google 'Glover's Army' which consist mainly of the Hausas! But that aside, I am of the strong opinion that 95% of what the article entails are FACTS that cannot be refuted, why? Obasanjo still remains a puppet in the hands of the Hausa-Fulani Oligarchy (the Kaduna Mafias), I have also raised the major plank to the wheels of progress to the development and full integrations of the Igbos shortly after Biafra that gave birth to the current suspicions the Igbos have against the rest of us when it comes to Nigeria's Polity, but it seems you don't want to address that. Of course, the points you picked from the article are facts too, but this one..... undecided

Let me say this again.

I did not tackle the report on the basis of opinions or suspicions but on the basis of the 4 cases cited.

Interstate roads are owned by FG.

Min of works will not allow them to do that.


Where there is a will, there is a way.

The first option is to ask for approval from the FG. I doubt if they would be denied the approval. Lagos got the Badagry expressway approval from the FG.

The second option is to break the highway into three - Lagos, Ogun, and Oyo parts. Lagos should do its own part up to Ogun boundary, Ogun should continue it up to Oyo boundary and so on. Will the Federal Ministry of Works prevent this?

Oyo state did the road from Iwo road roundabout towards Iwo in Osun state. If this is possible, why can't the second option above be?

Hmmm, you have a point.
It's an option.

The problem became complicated because of many many years of neglect of the road. But the road is also good to be upgraded to the right status.

Frankly, it's the right way to go. If you look at the breakdown of 2014 budget proposal, you WILL NOT expect any miracle on infrastructure.

If you compare the about 73million population of Nigeria in about 1978 when the expressway was built to the present estimated population figure of 160million, you will agree that we need another option to link the two busiest/populous cities in the SW. The population of Lagos around 1978 could not have been more than 4m.

Thirdly, the present Lagos-Ibadan expressway has lost its status as a freeway or expressway. There are so many estates and houses, religious centres, businesses, etc which make people dash across the highway.

Fourthly, the human carnage on that road is so much that nothing is too much to be done to provide an alternative.

ilugunboy:
Very right....
The same thing on my mind about the state of the expressway....you see trailers parked on the roads all the way from Ibafo to Ogere..down to Ojoo but with intermittent respite and you begin to ask if that road is still an highway or an intra-city road.
I also believe there should be a different approach....probably a collaboration among the states in the zone for a toll road.

I even forgot to include the trailers. They are a nuisance on the road.

It was an expressway between Alausa, Lagos and Ojoo, Ibadan. Today, it is no longer an expressway.

SW should make a bold move and leave the shameful Lagos-Ibadan with the FG; then move on to build a fresh, world-class highway, with light rail option, which can be tolled. The highway should have strict set-back regulations to shut out residential/business buildings and hawkers.

This will decongest Lagos and open up other places in the SW. For example, why can't someone work in Lagos and live in Ibadan?

There is land. There is a business case. The governors are in the same party. What's holding them back?
