Is Jonathan the reason why there has been countless coup d'état in Nigeria? Is Jonathan the reason why some people declared war on indiscipline and were actually not sure how to deliver it, but turned it into an instrument of draconian oppression, suppression, and killing the educational system that was helping the poor to gain higher education while some others in the country gain federal government bursaries? Is Jonathan that bad that he revamped our fast dead and forgotten Railway system? Is Jonathan so bad that he very effectively empowered women whom most of our Chauvinist would rather prefer they remained in the kitchen and bedrooms of their homes?

Attention all Buharists: If Our Past Leaders Did Well, We Would Have Gone Beyond Here. My decision for supporting President Goodluck Jonathan does not go down well with some of my friends and I ask them one simple question but they have not been able to answer me. I remember what happened in 1978 when the ban on political activities was lifted, the Northern political elite were united in asking for Olusegun Obasanjo to run for the presidency. The man refused to listen but they mounted pressured on him. Why? They said he was their friend when he first ruled the country. Nobody told them it was a long time ago that Obasanjo had ruled. I remembered one of the reasons given was the location of the Kaduna refinery which was built when Muhamadu Buhari was the Federal Commissioner for Petroleum. I am now asking the Buharists to remind me of what their hero did for the South where I come from either as the Head of state or as the Executive Chairman, PTF under the watch of the expired maximum tyrant, Sani Abacha w ...

CHIEF OBASANJO AND HIS POLITICAL IRRELEVANCE By Iyke Nwambie Many of us remember Chief Olusegun Obasanjo's political tantrums in different ways. I remember how we stood in the sun along Lagos Badagry Expressway almost all-day long in 1978 trying to catch a glimpse of him during one of his few visits to the ancient town of Badagry while in Primary school. And after what looked like waiting for ever, many of us ended up not seeing him. Now, why did we not see him? Was it because he was invisible? No..no...and no! It was because he played one of his several stunts on everybody. Instead of sitting in the then Official car of the Military head of state which was part of his entourage, he chose to sit in a nondescript Toyota Coaster bus! And while we argued amongst us if he really did that? I overheard one of my teachers say this: This Obasanjo man sef, na wa for am! Well, it is interesting to note that even after all these years, both as a keen observer of the Nigerian political happenstances and as an a ...

WE'LL CHANGE THAT...-GOV. FASHOLA. In what should be called a compelling and heart touching speech delivered by Gov. Babatunde Fashola at the at the 'Obafemi Awolowo Free Education' organised by Faculty of Education in Obafemi Awolowo University, the light went off while the lecture was on-going for few minutes but it was later restored. The comment of relentless Gov. Fashola was that 'We'll change that''. This is a pointer that APC as a party is committed to making lives better.
We need a change... but not A BUHARI IN THIS 21ST Century.. THE FUTURE OF NIGERIA IS THE FUTURE AND NOT THE PAST (1) Think of the kind of nation the colonial masters bequeathed to us before leaving. They instituted different political, social and legal system in the North and South, but still ran the country as one and left us without any attempt at righting the wrongs they’ve instituted. (2) Think of the pogroms in the North against the Igbo and Southerners. What were the reasons for this? There was no reason more than that the Igbo and Southerners were seen as taking over the economy and geographical space of the Northerner in a supposed one, free Nigeria. (3) Think of the First Republic and the issues that led to its demise. These issues ranged from the obvious injustices perpetrated at the centre by a majoritarian oligarchy, which then led to electoral violence in the West and national distrust in the Niger-Delta. (4) Think of beginning of military intervention in politics and the cost to the nation ...
Youths in Political History of Nigeria: Historically, the political story of Nigeria would be incomplete without the indelible records of past youth participation and involvements. The Pre-independence efforts of Nigerian youths contributed much to the achievement of independence in Nigeria as a nation. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Chief Anthony Enahoro and others who championed the cause of Nigerian Independence were young students. They started their agitation for independence as student Unions activist, and carried on formidable groups that challenged colonial rule. Anthony Enahoro was about twenty one years old when he moved the motion for the independence of Nigeria. Yakubu Gwon was only twenty-nine years old when he because the Head of State of Nigeria. Late Isaac Boro, fresh from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka was in his thirties when he formed the Niger Delta volunteer Force and later fought for the emancipation of his people. Finally if the youths of my generation will copy ...

NewsReel 13/12/14: Open Letter to Senator Tinubu On 2015 Presidential Election 1. Chief Obafemi Awolowo was imprisoned on trumped-up charges by Hausa Fulani controlled Federal Government of Nigeria [FGN] because they could not manipulate him. However, following the rebellion by Eastern Region against FGN and likely secession of Western Region from Nigeria, Chief Awolowo was released from prison and appointed Federal Commissioner of Finance and Vice Chairman of Federal Executive Council [FEC]. Because of Chief Awolowo’s sincere and selfless contributions to the fatherland, Western Region did not secede and the Civil War was brought to an end earlier than it would have been without him. But when General Mohammed overthrew General Gowon in 1975, he dropped Chief Awolowo as Federal Commissioner of Finance and abolished the office of Vice Chairman of FEC. The question is, if the military could work with a civilian Vice Chairman of FEC during the Civil War, what genuine excuse did late General Mohammed have t ...

Obafemi Awolowo, Ahmadu Bello & Nnamdi Azikiwe were not men who identified problems all their lives. They were men who provided SOLUTIONS.
Buhari’s evolution - In Touch, The Nation newspaper, 15/12/2014 When General Muhammadu Buhari emerged as the All Progressives Congress (APC) standard-bearer, my mind did not ponder the future. I did not contemplate President Goodluck Jonathan, his opponent. Neither did I mull over permutations of his running mate, and the fiery battle in the offing. I zoomed back into important memories, but not in a sequential order. The first was a story I read about him during those years of long fuel queues in the 1990s. Ironically we are experiencing that now in Lagos again. The Buhari story took place in a Kaduna fuel station. The line, huddled bumper to bumper in a serpentine and interminable sweep, kept the commuters hopeful. Word passed from car to car, commuter to commuter, that a certain dignitary was at the tail end, waiting his turn. This man did not send somebody, like other big men, to sweat it in the oven of the afternoon wait. Who was he? A stir of curiosity followed a consensus of sympathy. It was Buh ...
Meet Buhari’s running mate, Prof Yemi Osinbajo Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Wednesday, emerged the running mate to the All Progressives Congress Presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari. Here is a profile of the former Lagos State Attorney General and a Snr. Pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God(RCCG). Yemi Osinbajo, 55, is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and Senior Partner in the Law firm of Simmons Cooper Partners. His tertiary education was at the University of Lagos and the London School of Economics where he obtained the LLB and LLM degrees respectively. He was appointed the Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in 1999 and reappointed for a second term in 2003. During the period of his public service, he commenced the Lagos State justice reform project.

Awolowo on Buhari after his arrest: "During the period of my house arrest ordered by Major General Buhari when he ousted Shagari's administration, I had a restriction within my room for 24 hours a day, and for somebody who has tried to give others liberty all their adult life, that was absolutely intolerable" — Chief Obafemi Awolowo (1984) But today, same is a progressive and now head an entire region that gained extensively from same liberty fought by this Sage but as my SW friend forget that thing he dead and Buhari is our man now and forgiven on behalf of all by Asiwaju Tinubu the "modern" Nigerian democrat. Wonder shall never end trying to rent Aso Rock for 4 years.
Please TAKE NOTE! IBB registered Nigeria in OIC - Organization of Islamic Countries, not Buhari. Pls stop talking of Buhari Islamizing Nigeria. Even a a smart five year old, knows that's not even possible for any man alive to accomplish. Or are u considering urself a deaf, dumb or cripple that will not stand up and fight if that should happen? Hypocrites Plenty for Naija Shaa oo! When Obafemi Awolowo contested for Nigeria's Presidency in 1979, he was 70 years old, Nnamdi Azikwe contested for Presidency in that same year too, he was 75 years old; In 2003, Odumegwu Ojukwu stood up for Presidency of Nigeria, he was 70 years old no major uproar over age back then, in 2007 Ojukwu was 74 years old when he contested again for the same presidency, our people did not make so much noise about his age back then too; but now Muhammadu Buhari is contesting the Presidency at 72 and suddenly our people bring up the issue of Age, May Tribalism never ruin us in this country. Unless and until we allow objectivity to drive ...
GUYS HEAR THIS: Why power must return to the North in 2015 Yusuf Jubril PoliticsDecember 2014 This is the last month of 2014 and in just about a month and three weeks from now, the country would be holding a general election of unprecedented significance given that since 1999, except for the brief period of our late President Yar’Adua, the Presidency has been in the south. For the North, no other election in the history of Nigeria is capable of making or marring the political influence and position of the people of the Northern Region of Nigeria as the 2015 presidential election, especially now that Goodluck Jonathan is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). For the majority of Northerners who are by far more politically conscious of the two broad regions that make up Nigeria, it would have been unnecessary to remind our people. However, we have in recent times been witnessing a dangerous trend, a divide and rule tactics by the current government aimed at weakening the determination of the ...
While @ the Law School, Prof Osinbajo interned with the law firm of Chief Obafemi Awolowo. From late 1979- 1980.
Meet Buhari’s running mate who is married to Awolowo’s granddaugher He is so relatively new to the public eye that we don’t even know his correct surname. We know him as Yemi, quite all right. But is it Yemi Osibajo? Perhaps Osinbajo? Or even Osinbanjo? His name has been misspelt by the media for the past 15 years and there is no indication that he has ever tried to correct it. There you have the vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC): self-effacing and relatively new to the political fray. Indeed, there are not many pictures to choose from when you google his name! To his credit, though, all searches for “Osibajo” and “Osinbajo” lead to him. Some consolation there. The Punch has been alternating between Osibajo and Osinbajo. THISDAY, PMNews, TheCable and Premium Times seem fascinated with Osibajo. Ynaija wrote Osinbajo in one headline and Osibajo towards the end of the story. The Nation, which should know him very well, is sure it is Osinbajo. To know more about ...
Finally its Buhari and Osinbajo. Congrats to them though. The most incorruptible ones are finally here. Buhari doesn't own a house abroad,he doesn't own a foreign bank account,he doesn't own a share in any company,he lives on his military pension and even had to get a loan to buy his presidential nomination form. But ironically,he is driven in a large convoy of armoured SUVs which don't come cheap. Ok,his friends bought those cars for him but couldn't buy his nomination form. He is very detribalized and incorruptible though he presided over a very tribalised,nepotic and corrupt PTF where 75% of the projects and appointments were concentrated in the north while his cook and driver are igbos. Most of the fulani guys in katsina state he empowered in PTF bankrolled the election of umaru yar'adua as katsina state governor in 1999. Even obasanjo of all people had to disband PTF in 1999 cos it stank. Ok,let's forgive him because he pleaded ignorant of all that happened under him at PTF when he was confronted wit ...
EDUCATION VS IGNORANCE: Most of the people in power today enjoyed free education & scholarship created by our famous father of education in Nigeria, Late Pa. Jeremiah Obafemi Awolowo. BIG QUESTION? How did Awolowo and his cabinet achieved the huge task, why is it difficult for these people in power to implement such policy? Please, give reasons suitable for publication. Opinion count.
22 REASONS WHY BUHARI CAN NEVER RULE NIGERIA PLEASE, NIGERIANS READ CAREFULLY, IT IS IMPORTANT 1. He is an oligarch who does not believe in equality before the law. The way he jailed Lateef Jakande, Jim Nwobodo, Ambrose Ali, Pa Adekunle Ajasin, Chief Ayo Ojewumi on cases that had no foundation and allowed Awwal Ibrahim, the then Niger State governor, who was arrested in Heathrow Airport in London with 14 million pounds sterling and several millions of Niara and dollars to be under house arrest is my evidence. He also allowed Shehu Kangiwa, Sokoto State Governor who conducted and supervised the famous Bakolori Massacre of poor peasant farmers whose land were appropriated without compesation to remain under house arrest. 1(a) Ayo Ojewumi became blind as a result of his imprisonment over false charges and died shortly after. 1 (b) Prof. Ambrose Alli also became blind as a result of this false imprisonment. When he died, he had only one undeveloped plot of land to his name. 1© Pa Adekule Ajasin was never the ...
BUHARI & INHUMAN ACTION List of people that was jailed by Buhari in 1984; I. Chief Bisi Onabanjo 2. Chief Bola Ige 3. Chief adekunle Ajasin 4 Chief Sam Mbakwe 5. Chief Ambrose Alli 6. Chief ApaAku 7. Chief Jim Mwobodo 8. Chief L Kayode Jakande 9. Chief Alex Ekwueme 10. Chief Obafemi Awolowo ( house in Apapa buggled and looted). If not Buhari government is anti-human, why did he order; 1. Chief Shehu Shgari (house arrest ) 2. Akinloye ( resting in London) 3. Chief Akinjide (resting in london) 4. Uba Ahmed (allowed to eloped with our money to the USA. 5. Umaru Dikko (cooling self in London. Later his forceful extradition was botched by insider. His perception of corrupt man is southerners while 95% of people he put behind bars are non NPN (we all know what that party means) but southerners as 95% of those he jailed remained the symbol of this same democracy he wants to benefit from today. Our memeories aren't short anymore. Away with another junta. Away with a man filled with animosity. So, let's vote again ...
WHY PROF YEMI OSIBAJO, SAN's VP CHOICE IS A STRONG PUNCH. - A PERSONAL VIEW. Osibajo is one of the deepest members of the private investors club as well as board room tzars in Nigeria. Ask for the letterheads and owners books of the most influential and most powerful companies in the Lagos axis of Nigeria's economy and Osibajo takes a prime space. As attorney general in Lagos state under Gov. Bola Ahmed Tinubu 1999 - 2007, he opened Lagos trade and industrial economy, more than anyone before and after him, to the private sector through favorable legal frameworks and incentives for aggressive investments and portfolios expansion. E.g Enthronement of legal imperative for "corporate governance" i.e absolute authority of Boards of Directors, as insurance against corporate failures as a result of mismanagement of corporate vision. Osibajo, Prof. of Law and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN remains one of the best, most respected and most sought after knowledge based public/ motivational speakers in Nigeria's pri ...
The Many lies Of Buharist; 1) Buhari's daughter is married to an Igbo Christian; False. Even sahara reporters exposed this lies. 2) Buhari built our Refineries; False, Gen Obj did. Can a Minister contract a Refinery without his *** LoL 3) Buhari is not a religious bigot; False. He is the ONLY General in the army that advocated for full Shari'a across Nigeria. 4) Buhari fought corruption; Na big lie. Sentencing innocent Southern Civilian Governors to 100years in prison without evidences of corrupt practices is PURE-WATER LIES and wickedness that is filled with hatred against Southerners eg Lateef Jakande, Obafemi Awolowo, Ambrose Ali, Ajasin, Fela etc etc 5) Buhari is a good administrator of resouces; chai, diaris History o, APCians eg a) Buhari as Sole Administrator; show us what he did?

Buhari... Clueless, Corrupt and Ruthless At age 20, Buhari joined the armed forces in 1962. His highest formal education before then was an elementary school leaving certificate in Arabic study. He then enrolled at the Nigerian Military Training College, Kaduna for a three-month preparation course as a cadet. He received additional seven months at Mons Officer Cadet School, Aldershot, UK, as a young trainee cadet. At age 21, Buhari, an ordinary cadet trainee, with no formal education than elementary school leaving certificate and just under one year in the Nigerian Army, with no military training than a trainee cadet, was commissioned Second Lieutenant, and promoted to Platoon Commander 2nd Infantry Brigade, Abeokuta in 1963. One factor contributed to Mr Buhari rapid commission and promotion in 1963. Violence had broken out in Yorubaland over the imprisonment of Chief Obafemi Awolowo and 21 other Yoruba citizens. They were all sentenced to an average of 10 years imprisonment by the Gambari/Ibo coalition g ...
"I admire Buhari for his perseverance and staying power as a President-want-to-be. He reminds me of Obafemi Awolowo and his conviction that he wants to do for Nigeria what he has done for himself and for the old Western Region. Buhari reminds me of a Ronald Reagan who ran so many times but lost but he never gave up, and he turned out to be one of the greatest Presidents in American history by some of what he did. He was a democrat at one point in his life before becoming a conservative. Buhari was a military man who seems to have fully embraced the tenets of Democracy and must have learned a lot from his experience as a military dictator just like Murtala Mohammed, Obasanjo, and Ibrahim Babangida. Nigeria needs a man like that for this moment in Nigeria history. "Goodluck Jonathan is another Dukakis in military uniform. Buhari cannot be intimidated by the Nigerian Military. He would put a check on the excesses of the Military and restore the Nigerian Military and the Nigerian Police back to their glorious ...

OBASANJO AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF DESTRUCTION INSTEAD OF NATION BUILDING : Great leaders write on issues and ideas that move nations forward and advance the course of human development. Obafemi Awolowo and Nnamdi Azikiwe of Nigeria, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Lee Kwan Yu wrote of Singapore, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Ghandi of India, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama of the United States, Winston Churchill and Tony Blair of the United Kingdom, etc, have all penned great works that have become inseparable companions of scholars, political leaders, policy makers, successful businessmen, senior government administrstors, military strategists and historians around the world. Our own supposed leader, Gen (rtd) Olusegun Obasanjo, at a critical time in our nation's history, when we are confronted by an unstable political system, a yet-to-be-defined economy and serious security issues that threaten our collective existence, has found the time to only write about mundane issues as who pleaded to marry his daughter, and how ...

The 20 reasons why You Should Not Vote For Buhari. 1. He convinced all the northern political leaders against allowing the National Identity Card program because according to him, this would unravel the myth of a Northern population majority 2. He is an Islamic fundamentalist, the Bin Laden of Nigeria, who told his northern followers never to vote for anyone who was not a muslim. 3. He is a coup plotter. 4. He has never been able to account to Nigerians what he did with the 20 billion Naira of the Petroleum Trust Fund of which he was the chairman under Sani Abacha. 4(a) He has not been able to point to any project that he prosecuted outside the Northern Nigeria with the so-called trust fund. 5. Buhari, as part of his tribalistic practices placed President Shagari under house arrest inside a palatial mansion in Ikoyi while he locked up Shagari's Vice, Alex Ekwueme in Kirikiri Prison. Shagari is Hausa/Fulani like him while Alex Ekwueme is an Igboman. 6. Ikemba Emeka Ojukwu, another Igboman who returned from ...

When Will Cultism End In Nigerian Tertiary Institutions? How I wish the Federal and State Governments of Nigeria can do something about the phenomenon of Cultism in our Tertiary institutions. It is very painful that individuals struggle to get admission into Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education only to be continually raped by Cultists, continually robbed, continually beaten or forced to join Cultism. It is a big shame that I am always afraid when someone especially a lady close to me get admission into most higher institutions here in Nigeria. My mind keep hurting because I fear they may be unlucky to have these various factions of Cult groups rape them repeatedly or force them to cook for them for free or rob them or do all these and many more against these ladies. In the 21st century, Cultism is still a very big problem in Nigeria and the annoying part of it all is that the Government is not willing to do anything to combat Cultism. It seems that the Government benefit from the nefarious ...
I attended a session of the currently holding Conference this afternoon holding at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife.
Akinwunmi Ambode 24th October, 2014. Onikan Stadium, Lagos. “CONTINUING THE PROGRESS, SECURING THE FUTURE” I acknowledge the presence of all our party leaders, our party members, and fellow Lagosians. The presence of thousands of supporters todayis an attestation of the state-wide consultations that we commenced since last year. The acceptance and popularity of my candidacy, the great turn out and the fantastic support we have received from every corner of the State and beyond, from all sectors and various religious persuasions confirm that this is a divine moment in the history of Lagos State. In recognition of this support, I, Akinwunmi Ambode, in your presence and in the presence of God, formally put myself forward to run for the position of the governor of Lagos state. I make this decalaration with the highest sense of responsibility. I am putting myself forward because I believe I have the qualities required to continue the giant strides, which our great party, All Progressives Congress has achie ...

Flashback 1959. It was the Dec 12 1959 parliamentary elections that brought in Balewa's government, under the 1959 parliamentary type Constitution! First, our system of Government then was the Parliamentary System of Government. We did not have a President at first, we had a Governor General. Under such, the Governor General, was purely a titular ceremonial head, not unlike the Role of the Queen of England, and never an Executive President! Same as in Canada, and elsewhere. The title of Governor General, was only changed to 'President' in 1963, when Nigeria became a Republic under the same 1959 constitution. So, there's nothing to a President and a Prime Minister having Executive issues at all! Executive powers belonged to the Prime Minister. Balewa's party the Northern People's Congress had won only 134 seats out of the 314 seats available, with 1,922,179 votes repenting 25.2% of total votes ! Awolowo's Action Group, got 73 seats, with 1,992,364 votes, representing 26.1%, while Zik's NCNC, got 81 seats . ...
Life is so funny that it gives bsck what u put in it ! U want to be like Nelson Mandela, u want to be like Martins Luther the first, u want to be late Chief Obafemi Awolowo u want to be like Governor Fashola of Lagos ! When would somebody wants to be like u ? Life and time move faster than what u can wait for. If u cannot move ahead of them, move with them. Refused to be left behind. Leaders are made by two things; what u know and what u can do to keep ur head up and straight for ur generation and generations behind. If u want to join the group of LEGENDS u must be able to do it right when u have breath in u so when u live, people will know that u live and when u die, people will still believe that u lived ! Watch what u do today and chose right in life. Happy weekend to u all !

WITH BUHARI I STAND! By Fola Ojo I am neither rippled by the mammoth crowd that attended his declaration today in Abuja, nor undulated by all the encomiums poured on him for his majestic walk and ways in the contraption called Nigeria. Mohammadu Buhari just moves my mind, soul and spirit by just who he is. He is a walking, living truth, a rock-solid sincerity, a matured mind, an experienced hand, and a true Nigerian. Buhari is a tower of integrity and decency, the tonic and analeptic a sick nation like Nigeria needs at this time. For these reasons and more, with Mohammadu Buhari, I stand! I have always had a problem with his age. I had always thought that his agility and mental sharpness may have been compromised until I saw and heard what I saw and heard today. I heard words from the depository of a quick-witted sage and sharp mind. He didn’t tell us he had no shoes, but reminded us how he had put his boots on the ground fighting for the unity of Nigeria in a bitter Civil War as a young soldier. He di ...
ONLY BUHARI CAN SAVE NIGERIA A STATEMENT BY THE 4TH FORCE BY SENATOR PATRICK O. ANI The general elections of 2015 have been described as those that would mark a watershed in the political history of Nigeria. Nothing can be nearer the truth. To be sure, the unprecedented attention that the elections will attract has little to do with the state elections as they affect the governorship and state houses of assembly. Nor has it anything to do with the national elections as they affect the Senate and the House of Representatives. The attraction that the next year’s poll has to do with the presidential election that has been slated for St. Valentine’s Day-February 14. That is the particular election that is expected to be epoch, if all goes well. It is the election that will determine the direction that the country would go-whether or not it would chart a new course or continue on the same path that has it has been since the return of democratic rule in 1999. Having walked for 16 solid years (by 2015) on on ...
