Politics / God; Let The Time Be Now, Let Him Be The Man! by tybobo75(m): 4:09pm On Aug 20, 2015
Many would want now to be the prosperous time for our beloved nation but are of the notion that God Almighty shouldn’t be introduced into the political dispensation of Nigeria. Maybe because of its unholy nature or they believe that man and man alone is responsible for his political actions and its consequences, either catastrophic or a megahit. And some would want to avoid been more Christian than the pope or more Islamic than the Sheikhs in Arabia. Of course one is supposed to be, because in the Vatican where the pope stays, he might never have witnessed a power failure. And I am sure he does not know the pain felt when family members are lost due to terrorist attacks. As for the sheikhs in the Arabian coast, they think that sandstorm is the toughest thing in life because they only read about 'fuel scarcity' and 'dieing economy' on paper and they only know the rich Nigerian Muslims on pilgrimage and I’m certain that politicians that can ruin anything for their personal interest are not at the helm of affairs in their countries.

Dear God Almighty, please, make now the time:
the time when Nigeria would be free of ethical chauvinism, when terrorism would only be remember by how it was crushed, the time when corruption would no longer exist in our national lexicon, the time when the power failure would be a thing of the past, the time when there would be no news of depleted foreign reserves, the time when our national security would cease to be a thing of pan but rather, an extolment, the time when justice will prevail in our land, the time when sixteen would never be greater than nineteen, the time when the peaceful co-existence of Nigeria would never be a thing of trepidation, the time when our lost honour and pride would be restored, the time when Nigerians would proudly say ‘I AM A NIGERIAN’. This would be the time when the ‘Nigerian messiah’ will come.

Taking a careful look into the rich political history of the most populous black nation, one would realize they were times when we could say we had our messiahs. In the mid-seventies, he inherited a divided nation that had just survived war, with his positive policies, he united it to an extent. Nigeria’s economy before then was ‘sick’ thanks to the 1973 Arab Oil embargo that gave our oil exportation a boom that salvaged the economy. He was Gen Murtala Ramat Muhammed. In just six months, Murtala’s impact was felt in every part of the nation, his plans to return power to a civilian government which one Gen Ironsi took over from in January 1966, after a coup was plotted by Major Nzeogwu and his Major friends, made people further love him. Muritala’s cancellation of the 1973 population census which was weighted in favour of the North (where he comes from) had made the southerners trust in him increase, and his northern kinsmen realize that their brother was ready for business. Everything was going fine and with ‘immediate effect’ until that Friday afternoon when Gen Murtala R.  Muhammed met his tragic end in the hands of one Colonel Dimka in a senseless and unsuccessful coup.

God did not stop at one, after about twenty years after Gen Murtala’s death, He sent another Moses. With this Moses was an Aaron who gave him a helping hand. At a time when corruption had eaten deep into th fabrics of nation, unemployment rate as ascent high, when Nigeria was losing territory to terrorism; national finances were deteriorating; and when religious and political violence was rampant, a group of soldiers led by Brigadier Sanni Abacha overthrew the failing civilian government. And the army appointed Major General Muhamadu Buhari as the head of state (he inherited a near-empty treasury and huge trade arrears accumulated during years of reckless spending) and he appointed Major General Tunde Idiagbon as chief of staff (de facto second in command). Buhari didn’t wait to bat an eyelid before making his anti corruption and economic revival plans public. Under his administration, there was no room for indiscipline; not when they was W.A.I, (War against Indiscipline)! Foreign debts were paid and excesses in government expenditures were cut.

The news of the incorruptible generals in town was spreading like a wild fire in the savanna, with total War against Indiscipline, stubborn Nigerians became law abiding and with their strict financial policies and long term jail punishment, corruption was minimally reduced. Although cases of human right violations were recorded under this regime, it still garnered a lot of positive appraisals both home and abroad. On the 27th of August 1985, Maj. Lawan Gwandabe led a team of three Majors who were detailed under the orders of ‘Maradona’ to arrest Gen. Buhari and that marked the end of the Buhari/Idiagbon administration.

Nigeria had to wait twenty two years before anyone of Gen. Murtala’s ideology or any administration close to the Buhari-Idiagbon regime emerged at the helm of our national affairs. Nigerians went to the polls to elect a new president on the 27th of April 2007 after the outgoing president lost his third term bid.  Alh. Umaru Musa Yar’adua was announced the winner of the presidential election. Yar’adua, (May his soul rest in peace) a distinguished gentleman, Umaru was the only Nigeria president to publicly declare his total asset of value #856,452,892 (eight hundred and fifty six million, four hundred and fifty two thousand, and eight hundred and ninety two naira). He also reversed the petrol price (75 naira per litre to 65) which was a ‘gift’ to Nigeria from the former president. He shocked Nigerians especially his political associates when he publicly acknowledge that the election that brought him to power was fraudulent and he made moves to reform the 'sick' electoral system. Umaru proposed a government of national unity and opposition parties decided to join his government. All this happened in his first hundred days in office, and if good governance is judged by the first hundred days in office, Umaru could have arguably be referred to as the best president we ever had! But Umaru, after his first 100 days didn`t meet the expectations of many Nigerians, maybe because he had to settle his political 'godfathers' or his ill health didn`t allow him supervise many of the works and he had to leave them in the hands of his almost incapable deputy. Umaru was slow and steady but he never won the race, he gave it up to pericarditis!

As I write the names of these three men on a platter of gold when it comes to national issues, Some traits amaze me about this three great heroes, not their modest lifestyles at a time when leaders live extravagantly nor their sincere mode of government when people just aim for the top just to loot. But rather how these men didn’t stay long in office to execute all their good plans for Nigeria. Their tenure was cut short, although the military generals didn’t have a fixed tenure in office but their reigns were brief. Murtala had just six months, Buhari’s regime was 18 months. Yar’adua who had a stipulated time of four years didn’t complete it. Then I realised that God has always been involved in Nigeria’s politics. He could have made any of these men stayed longer, but He never wanted then to be the time. Perhaps, their 'rough' roads to power was their 'sin'. Both Buhari and Murtala came to office through the ‘gun’ and the election that brought Yar’adua to office was fraudulent. Or it could be because we Nigerians haven’t decided to change our dirty ways? Maybe their brief stay was the reward for our unnecessary ethnical discrepancies. 

Of all these Messiahs, there’s one who many Nigerians wanted out of office during his reign because of their ignorance, although many regretted their actions after he was long out of office. This same man was the only one that didn’t die in office among these heroes. Gen Murtala couldn’t survive the bullet that pierced through the glass of his Mercedes Benz along Ikoyi road, and the holiness of Saudi Arabia and her good medical facilities couldn’t buy Umaru Yar’dua a day beyond May 5, 2010. Another interesting fact is that only one of these great past leaders did his deputy not rise to power after him. Gen Olusegun Obasanjo later became the number one citizen of Nigeria twice after the death of his boss; Gen Murtala. Goodluck Jonathan (Yar’adua’s deputy) immediately assumed office after Alh Yar’adua was confirmed dead. These are not just coincidences, it’s a message that Muhammadu Buhari has some uncompleted missions to fulfil. Dear God, we got the Buhari message (although it was late) and we treated it carefully. We put away our ethical discrepancies, we decided to change our dirty ways, and above all we brought your Muhammadu Buhari to power through the best way we could on the 28th of March 2015. If these are the ways to make-up for our 'sins', forgive us because we have turned a new life. If they are still other 'sins' we are yet to know, pardon us because only You is perfect. Oluwa, please protect Buhari with something stronger than the walls of Jericho. Chineke, guide the affairs of our president and give him the wisdom of Solomon. Allah, give him the strength of David and Moses. Save Nigeria through him, like you liberated the Israelite through Jesus, protect him from enemies like you protected Muhammad from the evil people of Mecca. And above all, Dear God, for Nigeria, make him the man (messiah) and make now the time. We have waited too long enough! 
Fellow Nigerians you will agree with me that, as much as President Muhammadu Buhari need our support, he also needs our PRAYERS.

Politics / #FixTheNass: Before They Start Asking For Taebo Allowance... by tybobo75(m): 10:54am On Jun 27, 2015
What do we do when our Honourables stop behaving Honourably? What is the way out when our law-makers abandon their constitutional call to take on the calling of the likes of Floyd Mayweather?

We simply RECALL them!

Actually it's not that simple but it is said that those who refuse to go far can not ascertain how far they can go.

The wise men who drafted the constitution probably didn't have it in mind that the hallowed chambers could be transformed into a boxing ring someday. However, they had it in contemplation that an elected official might betray the trust of the electorates or jettison the confidence reposed in him/her. Therefore, certain provisions have been put in place to curtail excesses. Some of this provisions are exercised by other officials or in this case by the electorates themselves.

So how do we Recall?

Under the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria, sections 69 and 110 provide for the manner by which recall may be effected in both federal and state legislative houses respectively. For the purpose of exactitude, it is important to reproduce verbatim this constitutional provision on recall. Section 69 states:

“A member of the Senate or of the House of representatives may be recalled as such a member if:
(a) there is presented to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission a petition in that behalf signed by more than one-half of the persons registered to vote in that member’s constituency alleging their loss of confidence in that member; and which signatures are duly verified by the Independent National Electoral Commission;
(b) the petition is thereafter, in a referendum conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission within ninety days of the date of receipt of the petition, approved by a simple majority of the votes of the persons registered to vote that in member’s constituency.”

To further simplify the proviso, it is broken down thus:

I. The electorates must present a petition alleging loss of confidence in a law-maker. The phrase “loss of confidence” is not defined in the Constitution and this means that the electorates are at the liberty to determine what constitutes this phrase. Any event, actions or inactions may warrant the electorate to lose confidence in a law-maker. When we go a little farther, it implies that a law-maker need not necessarily be accused of any wrong-doing or be culpable of any misconduct before the electorate can say they have lost confidence in him;

II. This petition must be signed by more than one-half of the registered voters in that member’s constituency. For instance, if a member’s constituency has 4000 registered voters, not less than 2001 registered voters must sign the petition;

III. The petition is to be submitted to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission;

IV. Upon receipt, the Independent National Electoral Commission must:
(a) verify the authenticity of the signatures;
(b) conduct a referendum within ninety days of the receipt of the petition in order to get it approved by a simple majority of the votes of registered persons in that constituency. For instance, if only 1000 out of the 2001 registered voters turn out for the referendum, a simple majority of which may be anything from 501 votes upward will be enough to approve the petition.

And that's it. Senator-Tout comes home! Honourable-Thuggery leaves the house!

I think its high time we explored this constitutional remedy before things fall apart. Because as we all know, when things fall apart, the center cannot hold.

One of the best reasons for calling him is when you arrive at your department but not able to reach him. Let it be between 8am-3pm.

Some of them are annoying but don't be scared of doing what you feel is right.

I used to mail UNILORIN registrar even before PUTME (not only UNILORIN & I often get reply except from FUNAAB).
That was quite enlightening, thanks boss
