Stockholm Syndrome by Oladosu Olayinka

There is true story of a female that was kidnapped in Stockholm some years ago and was abused,later she was allowed to go out and surprisingly she chose to come back on her own,this went on for sometime.She was sighted by some vigilante and reported to police.The kidnapper was arrested,tried and jailed.
The victim became so attached to the captor,and wouldn’t want him jailed or separated from him despite all abuses she suffered,for the few that may not be aware of this ,it baffled psychologists all over the world,this eventually gave rise to a phenomenon known as Stockholm Syndrome,where the captive becomes attached to the captor,irrespective of the humiliation suffered previously.
I am just thinking of a situation that we often quote here in Nigeria,,,,,,”That the devil you know is better that the one unknown.”
Despite the corruption,the lack of focus and the inability of GEJ to control the women folks in his cabinet,for whatever reason,people are still routing for him.
Ha,my people are perishing because of ignorance and sentiment.
Each time I travel out of Nigeria,I become very unhappy because Nigeria has the best climate,vegetation and abundant human and material resources to excel.
You know what the Whites may never allow a clever,more serious ,less fleshy leader to come to power,for you and I know that if every nation is free and prosperous who will do the monkey job for the civilized nations.
Carry go my people one day our eyes will “open”

PRESIDENTIAL LIES SERIES 4 BLATANT LIES ALL BECAUSE OF 2015

I am still on the Strategic Team website (www.strategicteam.org), one of the many pro-GEJ sites. And for electricity, these are some of the heavy lies they posted there:

The Goodluck Jonathan administration has improved the power generation from around 2000 megawatts to 4502 megawatts in December 2012 the highest since Nigeria returned to democratic rule in 1999.

By July this year, power generation will hit 6,000 megawatts and by December this year it will hit 10,000 megawatts (assurance given last week by Minister of State for Power).

All ten Power Plants under the National Integrated Power Projects (NIPP) scheme to be commissioned by the end of this year. At the moment, majority of them have reached 95 percent completion stage.

Improved power supply has been boosted in part by the emergency declared in the Gas sector last year by President Jonathan. At the time gas supply was insufficient. But now, thanks to the intervention by Mr. President, Nigeria now produces more gas than is required for domestic consumption.

For more efficient power supply, the Jonathan administration has privatized the power distribution companies (DISCOs) under a most transparent bid process.

Today, large parts of an unprecedented number of cities and towns across the country are enjoying between 14 to 16 hours of uninterrupted power supply, except in some few areas where localized problems of power distribution network have created bottlenecks for smooth transmission. – See more at: http://strategicteam.org/president/achievements/power/#sthash.KbKScjAW.dpuf

I have said it before that part of those that will make Jonathan lose so disgracefully in February are those his campaigners because they are just making things worse for him by the day. As for me, I go dey continue my work of exposing the lies. Why lie to the people in the name of campaign?

THIS MAN CANNOT BE A RELIGIOUS FANATIC!

 

The import of this piece is to draw the attention of Nigerians to the fact that this very man who has been falsely and deliberately maligned is a true and patriotic Nigerian leader who has no prejudice of any kind whatsoever. Even in politics, he stands out as the most decent man among the present political leaders jockeying for power in Nigeria today.

We are proud to substantiate our position by just a glance on the composition of his domestic staff; inter-alia:

 

Staff Sergeant Isah Abdullahi – Driver.

Isah is an Akwei, from Shendam Local Government Area of Plateau State and an active member of the Roman Catholic Church, he has been working very closely with the General for a very long time and their closeness is purely defined by the former’s diligence and dedication to duty. He has been the official and personal driver of the General for a very long time.

 

Mr. Don. Friday Bethuel – Principal Private Secretary.

He is Jenjo by tribe and from Karim Lamido Local Government Area of Taraba State. An evangelist, band member and Projector Operator at The Saviour Chapel of NDA Kaduna, he is holding one of the most sensitive positions in the General’s office as a result of his competence and sincerity. He is directly responsible for the official and private correspondences of the General.

 

Mr. Martins Agbor – Office Cook.

He is Mbube by tribe from Ogoja Local Government Area of Cross River State. An active member of St Andrews Catholic Church Kakuri, Kaduna State, and his choice was purely based on his skills and dedication to duty irrespective of religion. He is directly responsible for the General’s recreation during office hours.

 

Mr. Sunday Nalle Awosemo – Home Cook.

He is Yungu by tribe and from Song Local Government Area of Adamawa State; an active member of The Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria, he has been working for the General for a very long time and his dedication to duty and trustworthiness has earned him the long standing relationship with his boss. He is directly responsible for the preparations of the General’s and family meals.

From the foregoing, it can be seen that most of the sensitive positions in General Buhari’s office and house are held by other tribes who are Christians and not his tribe and religion.

 

Also, among other apprentices is

Comrade Richard Tersoo Mnenga, a Tiv by tribe from Kwande Local Government of Benue State. And as a member of the Roman Catholic Church and a strong chorister, he took his choir members to sing Christmas carols for the General at his residence in 2009, a gesture he considered a very great honour. Richard is one of the closest and trusted apprentices of the General.

Professor Tam David West has vividly captured the personality of the General in his two books “Who Really is General Muhammadu Buhari” and “The Sixteen Sins of General Buhari”; Also Dr. Adamu Kyuka Usman, another Christian scholar too elaborated more on most of the issues raised here in his book “General Muhammadu Buhari: The Spirit of A Man”.

Nonetheless, we believe this our little effort through this medium will also serve a great deal in reaching out to many more of the mass of our people.

Courtesy: CHRISTIAN YOUTH NETWORK FOR A BETTER NIGERIA

Gen Muhammadu Buhari was once quoted as saying that ‘the Muslim God is not in Mecca neither is the Christian God in Jerusalem.’ If anyone must go on pilgrimage, it should be done on personal sacrifice and not at huge national cost. He frowned at the corrupt practices involved in yearly pilgrimages.

These are words on marble from a true nationalist. He is only faithful to his faith without depriving others to do same

LESSONS FROM THE SEQUESTRATION OF LINDA IKEJI’S BLOG (NIGERIA’s BEST BLOG,PERHAPS AFRICA’s BEST TOO) BY GOOGLE

 

I have been following Linda Ikeji blog for sometime and I highly rate her. She is Nigeria’s number one google and perhaps Africa’s best too. I was shocked 2 days ago that it was removed by google over allegations of plagiarism by another blogger – 15past7. This allegation may be true or outright false, unfounded, malicious and wicked, perhaps borne out of jealousy. The next few days and weeks will prove that.

 

I may have so many questions on what rights google has to be “internet police” and “internet judge” to take down her blog. Being a US firm,it is unlikely they didnt have any legal justifications to take it down. They must have. Afterall,they operate in the US and are liable to being sued millions,if not billions of dollars.It is unlikely they are doing something illegal. Sometimes,to get a blog or a site,we neglect to read all these lenghty terms and rights before we click agree. That’s the first and foremost lesson from that is that no matter how difficult it may be,always take time to study and properly understand the terms and conditions before signing or agreeing to it. That’s the number one lesson from that. It may have some hidden loopholes that can be exploited against you in future.

 

Second lesson is that among the cheering crowd around you are certain elements embittered and profoundly envious of your progress. News of your successful exploits drives a sharp nail deep into their hearts. Because they are cowards and can’t stand up to you to express their feelings, they simply cheer you on because the crowd is watching them. Deep down in their hearts, they are actually praying fervently, and waiting for that mighty crack in your progress to happen so that they can celebrate thunderously. Nostra II has experienced that a number of times. Enemies keep silent on his success but hammer much on one or 2 failed attempts forgetting he has tens of thousands and tons of successes.

 

Thirdly, you should learn a lesson or two about personal survival from Linda’s experience. Only YOU can define your dreams and make them come true. In defining that dream, your personal survival comes first. So, be selfish about it because when you crash, you are likely gonna crash alone.

 

Lastly, crowded followership does not translate to approval and validation. And please, don’t let the crowd define what approval or validation means to you. Always define approval for yourself, within the context of your own dreams and life goals. You have to approve and validate your own ideas first, and share with those that buy into your vision. BE CONSTANTLY WARY OF THE CROWD. You dont need to be a politician or religious leader to know that

 

There are many more lessons from there like plagiarism and much more,but I’ll only talk of these four which I term the four most important lessons to learn from very many others too.

 

Life teaches a lot of rude lessons and challenges. Your ability to overcome them makes you a champion

Post – Mortem of the Victorious parties in the April 2011 General Elections

 

I remembered I have done many analysis of the April 2011 General elections. Not just because all of my predictions and pre-election analysis all came to pass (all these are in my articles previously and had practically 100% accuracy) but more also keeping with developing and current trends.

The 2010 Electoral Law made a provision for parties that didnt win any seats to be deregistered. So far many “dormant” parties have been deregistered. At least 35 parties have been deregistered till date. We used to have at least 64 political parties (most of them dormant) and now we have less than 30 (including the newly registered ones). INEC has been commendable in this stead. More were being deregistered till FRESH won a case against its deregisteration. I mean Rev Chris Okotie’s party. Let me save you other details.

11 parties won seats in the 2011 elections and should be the ones that survive now (plus newly registered parties). PDP, ACN, CPC, ANPP, LP, APGA, DPP, Accord (in order of performance) and parties that won just one or two seats in state houses of assemblies like PPN, PPA and KOWA. I have always advocated for the merger of progressive opposition to tackle the hydra-headed vote grabbing monster called PDP.I also maintained APGA, LP were just mere appendages of PDP and should merge with the main party and small parties would soon lose steam and if they failed to merge,they will fade away and go into the doldrums of oblivion,&insignificance and die off.

My brother- The Oracle predicted a two party system for Nigeria like occurs in US, Britain etc. That never means there wont be smaller parties but they will only be local champs. I agreed fully with him and echoed his stand. Now it appears some political parties “heard” our advocacy. ACN, CPC, ANPP, most of DPP and a small part of APGA (what Rochas calls the real APGA (or apga-apga) merged into a big party APC. The rest small part of DPP has “merged with PDP.

The Yorubas say “aikofa nile,odu ti n se” (as soon as the oracle spoke,the prophecy got fulfilled). This is what has happened now. The main players of APGA and LP have decamped to PDP. The parties are left in crisis that will consume them if they failed to merge with PDP. Nostra II has spoken. PPN,PPA and KOWA are just like dead bodies without lives within. Even the godfathers, founders and elected officials on their platform have all decamped to PDP, so what are we now saying.

 

All predictions by Nostra II have come to pass as the only serious big parties we have are effectively 2 – PDP and APC with a sprinkling of few others like Accord, and newly registered ones like Babalola Femi’s SDP. That is the outlook for 2015 elections and any serious politician should look no further than these serious parties.

Disregard Nostra II to ur peril

ASARI DOKUBO NAMED AS ONE OF TWO NAMES ASSOCIATED WITH THE Sept 5TH SOUTH AFRICAN 9.3M MONEY FOR ARMS DEAL!!!!

 

Asari Dokubo who is leader of a Niger delta Militant Group along side Felix Idiga a politician in the Ruling PDP were on board the jet seized by South African authorities according to local sources.

In the south east part of Nigeria Felix Idiga is a well known man . This is on account of his emergence as one of new breed billionaires from that region. That he is also close to the Christian Association of Nigeria president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor might be stating the obvious. After all, the man of God sits on same board of about two companies with Idiga. One of such is Swat Nigeria and Eagle Air Nigeria.

Idiga said to be the chief executive officer of JAFAC group is into construction with Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) as it’s major customer. Those who know this fellow say he made chunk of his money through his association with the top shots of NDDC and major militants in the south- south. Sources say he was allegedly involved in oil bunkering along with emergency money bags like Scott Tommey and Delta based Ayeri.

Hence with the news broke that his name was traced to the funds scuttled by the South African police, those who know him well were not too surprised based on his antecedents. Of recent he dumped the Imo governor to pitch tent with the ruling party PDP just like Ali Modu Sheriff to pursue his senatorial ambition in IMO.

According to the revelation, the private jet with a US registration number N808HG was one of two jets cited by South African officials on September 5 and is owned by Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor. The second is a jet registered with the name Felix Idiga, the owner of Jafac Limited. Mr. Oritsejafor’s jet arrived South Africa with $9.3 million cash loaded in several suitcases meant for the purchase of arms and ammunitions.

Investigations have confirmed that Under the South African laws, a person entering or leaving the country is expected to carry cash not exceeding R25, 000 (about US$2, 300), or the equivalent in foreign currency notes. Also, arms usually involve a complex bank transfer system needed to move the money between the countries involved in the deal; they are rarely done in cash.

This contravention of the South African law and other laws governing the movement of cash and the purchase of arms and ammunitions proves that the intended transaction was illegal and is possibly intended to smuggle arms to Nigerian to continue to equip terrorists in the North, pirates and militants in the Niger Delta and other forms of insurgence in Nigeria.

THE FALL and FALL OF KESHI – GRACE TO GRASS

Finally I’ve been vindicated over and over again,even one more time once again. My LORD has vindicated me. This Sunday was a special thanksgiving for me. I warned men when we won AFCON that the Super Eagles were overrated and our AFCON win down to a flash of individual brilliance and pure luck,a smile perhaps from the football gods { like Denmark -Euro’92; Greece Euro 2004, Zambia AFCON 2012,&Chelsea UCL 2012 } and not so much from excellent team play, cohesion or tactical input from the then coach – Keshi. Individual brilliance and pure luck can only carry a team so far and not sustainable.

I wasn’t impressed by our performance when we won AFCON. I didn’t get carried away by d initial Keshi victories was that it wasn’t purely based on team performance. Unfortunately some just look at results.! I was proud of d result but football sometimes is more than one result. Keshi did not impact any pattern of play. He failed to develop a core of capable players who can grow together en improve from tournament to tournament. Rather he chose to war with his best players like IK Uche, Peter Osaze Odemwingie amongst others. Yes it was true he discovered some good players. Qudos to him. He also had very controversial players that don’t even worth being in a team B like Chigozie AGBIM, Azubuike Egwuekwe, Gabriel Reuben, Michael Uchebor, Nwofor, Ameobi and some others. Can u imagine benchwarmers in our team (when first team players were not included) and players that couldn’t tie up a starting shirt with a council team in scotland,player that was still a bench warmer in a Serie B team. His selections were at best biased&controversial.

I warned Nigerians in an article “The Boiling Frog Syndrome” that we were like the frog in boiling water,we better got out before it’s too late! Didn’t I? Rather than appreciate the facts in my article,I was being called names by Keshi’s Hossanna of praise worshippers. Who is to be ashamed now? Me or them? Judge for yourselves. Raising issues or questioning certain team decisions and tactics doesn’t mean that one is celebrating the gain of the country’s opponents nor celebrating the country’s loss.

Pride goes before a fall. One idiot will be calling himself ‘Big Boss’ when even the World Cup winning coaches are still as humble as Buddhist monk, here otherwise is the pattern. I felicitate with Ike Uche on this magnificent moment in time.

 

Disregard Nostra II to ur peril !

God rules in the affairs of men !

Cheers!

IT’S BUHARI’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE TO RUN IN 2015

Is Buhari right to decide to run in 2015? I have not said yes, I have not said no. I will simply respect whatever decision he has taken, because it is within his rights. But to say running despite his promise never to do so again in 2011, would tantamount to loss of integrity, is to pull it to ridiculous level. Who never changes his mind in this world? A change of mind is not irresoluteness.

It is not fickleness. Neither is it vacillation or shilly-shallying. In fact, a man that never changes his mind is one to fear, and run away from. Such would remain stiff and unbending, even in the face of superior arguments. Like Julius Caesar said of Cassius, “such men are dangerous.”

Jesus gave a parable in Matthew 21 verses 28-30. “A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said. Son, go and work today in my vineyard.

“He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.

And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go sir: and went not.”

Jesus then asked which of the two sons did the will of his father? Of course, the first one!

The conclusion? You can always change your mind to do positive things. It will never lead to loss of credibility or integrity. Buhari has a right to choose to run or not. He has chosen to run. Let him be. Respect his decision and let Nigerians decide his fate in a free and fair polls

TRUE LOVE

The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendship don’t last.

You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different.

Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their weaknesses. Love is patient and kind. Love is deliberate. Love is hard work. Love is painful and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to leave.

6 Types of Men You Should Never Marry

 

Most Nigerian women have met these types of men in her life. And the worst thing is that she believes that she can easily change them.

But really it is better to stay alone than to get married to these kinds of guys…

 

 

1. Still adores his ex

You probably know that type. He says that he loves you and that it is over between he and his ex, but he continues to compare you with his ex-girlfriend. He won’t be able to show you the love you deserve until he is over her. And this can last for ages.

2. Unready for serious relationships

There are a lot of guys that when dating a girl, and the relationship progresses or he decides that he is not interested in you, he just mentions that he is not ready for a serious relationship. You begin to wonder if he was really not ready for a marriage or it was just an excuse to dump you.

3. “Perfectionist”

No, it is not about the perfect guys. It is about guys who are always wondering if you are not his perfect girlfriend. And who often wonders if a better version of you is waiting for him somewhere. These kinds of men are just not worth your attention.

4. The one who still manages his career

If a guy is older than 35 and he is still unsure about what his dream job is, or a man who is not currently working or doing different kinds of odd jobs all the time, he is unlikely to settle down soon. Nigerian men like to settle their careers before proposing, don’t forget that.

5. He has never dated anyone

If a guy seems to be nice, mature and says to you that he is ready for marriage, even though he has never been in a relationship, it could be a trap. Why was he single all these time? He might be hiding something from you.

6. He believes in polygamy

This pretty boy is stating that polygamy is essential for men. In reality he just seeks some excuses for cheating. And do you want to live all your life with a guy who from the beginning says that he will be unfaithful? Probably not.

No sir! You prepared ur failure. You were drunk with success. Even when u were being lucky to be favoured by the soccer gods,u thought u had arrived. What of you controversial selections,giving place only to those who worship u&bootlick u rather than those who deserved to be there on merit. You use words like disruptive, not obeying instructions etc to those who merited places on ur team,yet you victimised them. Is any of them half as stubborn as Barlotelli? God is their defender and has finally brought you to shame. What of those you chose due to economic reasons? Chai ! There’s God o. You put players who were benchwarmers in Serie B teams, who played in obsure leagues and for obsure teams ,even those who can’t tie a place in an ordinary council team in scotland over more competent ones you described as young,or incompetent even though u knew in ur heart it wasn’t so.

You disregarded constructive criticism which were really good advises. You villified the advisers to ur peril. Now you know better.

I hope you realised that you were in a position to shame your haters.

In conclusion,you were the one who hated yourself and dug ur pit for ur downfall, not any other.

Nostra II’s 2014/15 season EPL prediction

 

It’s here again. For the 7th straight season,Nostra II makes his EPL prediction for the season. As u know past predictions have been very accurate. It was a tough decision in completing this EPL prediction for this season because he has predicted the winner even before the season started. He just didn’t add d normal “additions” like he used to.

Nostra II knows he is being looked upon to fail. Don’t worry, a prophet has no honour among his people. JSP knows this even more,with other social media acquitances. Nostra has 99.9% accuracy. People look towards the 3 or 4 that didn’t occur as predicted forgetting he has tens of thousands of accurate ones. For once,he’s practically stopping (except very rare or needed cases) all SPORTS PREDICTIONS to rather concentrate on Political, Social, International affairs, current affairs and other predictions. The reason is that it’s not good to cast ur pearls to pigs and holy things to dogs as The Good Book warned. Nostra will be making mostly (if not entirely) sports analysis as from henceforth.

I’m sure when Nostra II predicted Man U’s fall from grace to grass last season, many Man U fans fought him and “stoned” him. But what he said,hasn’t it come to pass? Haven’t they believed now? Hahahaha. I still believe the real reason why Alex Fergusson resigned rather suddenly hasn’t been revealed. Sooner or later it will come to light.

Jose Mourinho is just a kind of special coach. Infact,I’ll have preferred him to coach our national team rather than one sacked and disgraced overrated clown. Mourinho’s teams always peaked in their second season,irrespective of first season achievements. Chelsea should win this season’s EPL with ease. Man City should come second.

 

For Arsenal supporters,I have this proverb in my language “atari ajanaku kii s’eru omode” (the elephant’s head is too heavy to be carried by babies&toddlers). Hate me if you want but you aren’t gonna win EPL or UCL this season. I warned u such last season even though you led EPL for most season before you crumbled like a pack of cards. Hahahahaha. For Man U,you’ll use the advantage of not playing in any european cup this season (like Liverpool took advantage of last season) to win a place and qualify to play in Europe next season.

Can someone warn Sunderland to start winning matches rather than playing draws if they don’t want to end up like Bologna last season who got relegated despite have few losses but had the highest number of draws in Serie A last season.

As always,I maintain that all predictions get fulfilled by God’s Grace,never by my grace nor power but by His alone. To Him be all Glory!

FG Ceasefire with Boko Haram: A Cover up by FG???

 

While we all thank God for the wonderful news that FG signed a ceasefire agreement with Boko Haram, finally doing what they should have done 4:years ago, it was clear to everyone that the end of BH was imminent going by a series of important events that happened in the past 2 months. Check the timeline:

 

1. Boko Haram sponsors were exposed by Rev Davis.

2. Jonathan and a sponsor and founder of BH (Ali Modu Sherif) went to Chad. Was it to clean up their tracks and tell the boys game was up. Meaning withdrawal of further support and supply of money, food, fuel and other logistics for them?

3. BH arms suppliers were caught in South Africa with $9.3m cash in Ayo Oritshejafor’s private jet given him by his friends in FG. Did this unexpected exposure of secret deals and link with terrorists helped to embarrass everybody involved in BH support, and cuts off fresh supply of ammunition to the terrorists. This meant low morale for them.

4. BH start to lose to Nigerian Army, their leader was rumoured killed.

5. Jonathan announces that BH will end in October.

6. FG that said BH was faceless started discussing with them. Supporting the fact they knew them all along, and knew where to meet them anytime anyday.

7. BH becomes orphans, no more sponsors, fresh supplies of resources and money, no replenishing of arms and ammunition as weapon supplier is in SA jail, no leader…etc They are disoriented.

8. FG accuses America of blocking them from buying weapons. America says they only refuse only when the purpose is against human rights – a veiled definition of buying weapons to arm terrorists.

9. That accusation burnt the last bridge, since America knows all their clandestine moves, that was the last straw, any more moves, America will expose it. Road closed to BH and their sponsors.

10. BH becomes liability to the owners.They cannot identify with them without being exposed, which is politically suicidal at this time that is close to election.

11. Time up. BH has outlived their usefulness.Time to disband them.

12. FG had 3 days intensive meeting with BH & Chad president ldris Derby in Chad.

13. FG announces ceasefire with BH whom they previously said were faceless. Did they discuss and signed the ceasefire agreement with ghosts?

Nigerians are watching

Don’t burn the ladder you used to climb to the top : Nigerian “Mario Barlotelli” as case study

It’s not news that Ghananian born italian footballer is the ” enfant terrible ” bad boy,always getting into trouble and having all manners of weird behaviour. He gives his coaches problems at times and he’s very stubborn. This isn’t an attempt to villify him but to portray his true character.

However, Nigeria has a version of Mario Barlotelli. His name is Gbolahan Salami. He is an ex- junior international and current super eagles player who plays for Warri Wolves FC in the Nigerian Premier League – NPL.

Once upon a time,few seasons ago, Gbolahan left Sunshine FC then coached by Gbenga Ogunbote to join Shooting Stars (3SC). The next season’s opener was between Shooting Stars ,his new club and Sunshine Star,his former club. He scored a beautiful goal and celebrated it with his usual backflips. He went further to mock Gbenga Ogunbote,his former coach ,giving him an obscene jesture with his hands (telling him your papa,your mama) &turned his ass towards him,pulling down his shorts&pants&putting it back again in front of coach Ogunbote.(NPL Board banned him for few weeks for this obscene act).

Now that coach.Ogunbote is now one of the four caretaker coaches of Super Eagles&Salami is still in d super eagles. What do u think the relationship of Salami will be with his former coach? Won’t coach Ogunbote victimise Salami or even prevent him from being invited to the National camp (now that his godfather – Coach.Keshi has been sacked) ?

 

This provides an important lesson to us all: Don’t bite the fingers that fed u.

Do not burn the ladder you used to climb to the top. Who says u won’t need it again?.

Disregard to your peril

How 2015 Presidential Elections could be: A provisional diagnosis by Nostra II

Diagnosis is a very important aspect of medicine. It is the point where the physician concludes on all he’s seen&heard so far from the history the patient gives,his questions, physical examinations and investigations and decides on the next line of action for the patient. Not to bore you with medical things but forgive this writer because he’s a medical doctor and has seen it all.The purpose of this write up is political analysis.

There are many types of diagnosis. The initial or provisional diagnosis the doctor gets from his history taking&physical examination. Here he may have other differential (or alternate) diagnoses. He sometimes sends the patient for further investigations to rule out or confirm his diagnosis. Here the investigations may or may not change his initial diagnosis. After all these he may change or confirm his diagnosis. Here he has a working diagnosis which he uses to work. Sometimes the initial diagnosis is his working disgnosis,depending on different circumstances&situations. Further tests may confirm or rule out the working diagnosis. In rare cases the final diagnosis may even be got after death during autopsy. Not to bore you with medical things or how I work,let’s get to main business.

It’s no longer news that the 2015 election is most likely going to be between President. Goodluck Jonathan and former head of state Gen.Muhammadu Buhari (retd). Before you accuse me of jumping gun,I said most likely. President Jonathan only just confirmed he’s gonna run ,even though all circumstances pointed towards that long ago (for those who discerned). His body language suggested that. The APC is yet to conduct its primaries which General Buhari may or may not be chosen. However,all points towards him being chosen as the party’s flagbearer.

The choice of running mates may also alter things for either candidate. There is a question of whether Jonathan will stick with VP Namadi Sambo or may choose another running mate. Whomsoever Buhari chooses as running mate will affect his votes across some states. Surely he won’t be foolish to make it a muslim-muslim ticket. He has some christian southern politicians to choose from. If I was in a position to influence his choice,I would tell him to avoid choosing Rochas or Amaechi or any south east politician. I would prefer Gov. Adams Oshiomole of Edo State or Gov. Kayode Fayemi (if he had won re-election). I may also consider Sen. Ajayi Boroffice. This is where an FFK or Opeyemi Bamidele could have fit in if they hadn’t decamped. He could also get a capable running mate with wide appeal. I don’t think some people will give him that wide spread appeal.

There is also potential party crises either national or state and effects of all primaries. All these can alter the course of elections and other idiopathic (unknown) factors, rigging&electoral malpractice and of course the God factor. I know all these can change the course of elections in Nigeria.

However,I’m gonna make a first analysis of how the elections will be,if they are free and fair.I have done a hard thorough research across all states to arrive at this,after several hours of analysis and research. Of course this may change depending on aforementioned factors. However,I feel it’s right to make my initial projections known. It’s however not a final projection.

This is how the states will vote come 2015.

 

1.Abia – Jonathan

2. Adamawa – Buhari (small margin)

3. Akwa Ibom – Jonathan

4. Anambra – Jonathan

5. Bauchi – Buhari

6. Bayelsa – Jonathan

7. Benue – Jonathan (fair margin)

8. Borno – Buhari

9. C/River – Jonathan

10. Delta – Jonathan

11. Ebonyi – Jonathan

12. Edo – Buhari (small margin but dicey)

13. Ekiti – Buhari

14. Enugu – Jonathan

15. FCT – Jonathan (small margin but very dicey)

16. Gombe – Buhari (fair margin)

17. Imo – Jonathan

18. Jigawa – Buhari

19. Kaduna – Buhari.

20. Kano – Buhari

21. Katsina – Buhari

22. Kebbi – Buhari

23. Kogi -Jonathan (small margin)

24. Kwara – Buhari

25. Lagos – Buhari (fair margin)

26. Nassarawa – Buhari( fair margin)

27. Niger – Buhari

28. Ogun – Buhari

29. Ondo – Jonathan (small margin but dicey)

30. Osun – Buhari

31. Oyo – Buhari (fair margin)

32. Plateau – Jonathan

33. Rivers – Jonathan

34. Sokoto state – Buhari

35. Taraba – Buhari (fair margin)

36. Yobe – Buhari

37. Zamfara – Buhari

As we can see Buhari has 22 states as against Goodluck’s 15 states and if considering that the larger population of the electorates reside in the North and Southwest it stands to reason that Buhari will be our next president, but that is if the contest is going to be free and fair. I’ve not even considered the game of numbers because if I did,you’ll see that Buhari has the highly populated states.

Let’s continue to watch as events unfold

We Need to know the arithmetics / statistics of Jonathan’s improvement for Nigeria in d past 6 years (if any)

 

In 1996 when President Bill Clinton was running for re-election in America, he was asked what he brought to Washington as President for 4 years for him to even think of 4 more years. Billl Clinton said, he brought simple Arithmetic to government so that everyone could see the figures clearly of his achievements. By the time he left office,he had created 22 million new jobs, he reduced unemployment, he took many Americans away from the welfare program, he reduced the national debt from 8 trillion to 5 trillion, his Arithmetic was so simple to understand. His job approval rating was 67 percent, the highest in the last sixty years except President Reagan was rated higher than the man from Hope Arkansas.

 

The question the Oracle is asking President Jonathan is the Arithmetic solution of what he brought to Abuja to even think of 4:more years.

 

Did he create jobs in millions? If yes give us simple Arithmetic figures.

 

Did he reduce unemployment from what percentage to what?

 

Did he fix the security problems in the country? Give us figures.

 

If he did not do all the above with just simple Arithmetic figures, he will need to ask himself why he is interested in second term? Or is it just about pride or what?

 

Only a simple Arithmetic figures on his achievement in the last six years can help him to explain why a second term is a must for him.

 

The Oracle says, It is diffcult to tell lies with Figures particularly if the Arithmetic is simple. We need to know.

Frank Questions About President.Jonathan’s Academic Achievements

I will ask these questions about President.Jonathan’s academic achievements and please give me answers.

1. Where on the Internet or any Academy or Learned Society can we find Jonathan’s full CV. Please help. I need to see.

2. Which book did Goodluck Jonathan Ph D ever write? Please include ISBN if you have it. Co-authored books are welcome.

3. Which journal contains any of Goodluck Jonathan’s academic writing? Or which standard textbook was written or which Book of Reading contains a chapter he wrote? Or does anyone have a Conference Procedure that contains his input?

4. Who was ever taught by Jonathan? Apart from Patience Jonathan (who apparently is not a teacher’s delight), who was inspired by Goodluck Jonathan Ph D within academic confines?

5. Who has access to Goodluck Jonathan’s. thesis at B.Sc or Ph D. levels? Or you could just tell us the title so we can google

6. Who knows anything academic that Goodluck Jonathan Ph D contributed?

I do not ask to denigrate anyone. Equity requires that these questions be answered before he and his warriors can take on Buhari on the same issues

These questions are good and valid but I think it is too late to ask those questions, even now. In a civilized society any academic contributions, writings, even essays or opinions are part of discussions before any candidate is given the opportunity to taste power.

 

In America, I could recall all the professors of Barrack Obama were all interviewed, they found one who was a socialist and they also found a former Pastor of the then Senator Obama who abused the country at one time.

My point is this, it is not a crime to ask questions, or dig into the past of out past leaders or anyone planning to lead the nation, but in a country full of those with arrested education, it would be considered an insult to ask question from the man with resource control about his PhD in Animal Science or the type of animals he liked when he doing his Animal study stuff.

I need answers !!!

Why President.Jonathan may lose 2015 Elections by A Concerned Niger Delta Youth

( Extracts of an Open Letter to President Jonathan)

 

 

…I have read and listened carefully to thousands of youths and how the iron rod of oppression has continued to batter their future in a nation that has a mighty wealth.

Your proem to the presidency witnessed one of the greatest supports from the average class and youths of the very society you now govern as the number one citizen.

Since 2011, we have not seen the benefit of leadership. The touts have been empowered by different means, while the young intellectuals keep facing the dark abyss of economic dungeon. The partial removal of fuel subsidy was an initiative of the federal government, but what are some of the benefits to the youths of this nation. The direct beneficiary of the SURE-P lies within the domicile of same bourgeois, who have continuously issued a cheque to the youths, signed “NO FUTURE”. To what extent has the programme elate the sadness of the masses that joyfully welcome your shoeless and bagless episode and sold their lives to your course to ensure you emerge the winner of the 2011 presidential election. The sycophants around you who hang every opportunity and let same it down, but only to their cronies, friends and children. To be truthful with you my president, the GDP, economic growth, and employment figures quoted daily on paper does not reflect the reality of conscious happenings.

Never be too confident about emerging the winner of your 2015 Presidential elections as the incumbent. Those who think the saga of 2011 will repeat itself are truly not in touch with reality. In 2011, there was no mega opposition at the centre. The emergence of the APC should not be taken for granted because the North produced different candidates for that election and if they venture harmonize, and project a single acceptable candidate, you may not find it easy. Never trust on some Northern governors claiming to be behind you, for it is only when the rubber meets the road their true colours crystallizes.

What about the Christians? They have also not benefitted from your government because only the Christian Hierarchies keep getting the dividends from your government. Going back to the teeming youth population where you’ll get your vote, remember if the opposition picks their vice presidential running mate from the South-West, their votes will be full because they didn’t get good vote from the South-West in 2011. Coming home to your South-South Region, Delta State is divided because of the perceived imposition of Anthony Obuh by the incumbent governor Emmanuel Uduaghan. Edo and Rivers States is 80% in the hands of the APC. What about the South East that in also divided against the PDP? Never be too confident my President.

The corruption in your government begs for critical evaluation and fundamental examination. I cannot even chronicle the tsunami of probes carried out without prosecution, is it the police pension scam, oil subsidy fraud, bullet proof car scandal, the NIS recruitment that killed tens, the $20billion missing fund or $28billion petroleum minister chattered jet, the list goes on ad infinitum but the average youths cannot afford even two rectangular meal a day let alone square. Mr. President, we are disappointed and among those suppressed youths in Nigeria, I wish to channel to you our grievances why the youth of the nation, specifically the South-South may individually boycott voting and face headlong struggle that will put food on their table.

 

You have only appealed to the Northern Oligarchy and not the average northern youth because your administration has not carried the youths along in policy and implementation though it is constantly done on paper.

The youths of South-South who have not experienced economic difference in their lives since you emerged the president will obviously not waste their time to stand in one queue or another under the sun or rain because of election. You aroused their hopes in 2011 and have somewhat killed it before 2015. The ladies of course will tell their men to relax and rest during the day so that they can spend time together at night. I understand the social life of my Southern brothers and sisters and will make bold to state that we’ll listen to our ladies more than the voice of our leaders. However, valentine means nothing to our Northern brothers and sisters and will therefore come out fully into the streets to vote. The opposition in the South will also take the voting serious and will want to deliver their states for APC.

The rate of unemployment, joblessness and poverty is unthinkable. The youth of this nation still wallows in the hallow chamber of economic injustice. The financial disequilibrium has been very obvious. The Youths are not independent and the nation has presented to us a cheque of hopelessness yet fastening our legs to the inescapable rod of bankruptcy. The unspeakable horrors of joblessness among the Nigerian youth is reflected in the gross malady of the boko-haram sect and it has widened the gap for insecurity, robbery, kidnapping, cybercrime and many social vices and anti-patriotic activities. We cannot as a nation, trivialize the degrading economic tranquility while our nation continues to be the greatest purveyor of economic injustice in the world.

The conspicuous space between wealth and abject poverty has left an ultimate contemplation in the minds of dynamic youths. We do not detest our policy makers but will not align to the policies that have kept us in perpetual ruins. We respect the structures but will not cooperate with the system that has battered us with the acrimonious whip of dehumanization. The volatile tenseness as a result of idleness must not be allowed to explode on a defenseless nation you preside over.

The sycophantic viciousness of some of those around you has sent a bad image of your good person to many citizens in and outside the country. I’m neither an APC nor a PDP apologist but your good image has been tarnished by those who represent you at various levels. Let it therefore be known that a stitch in time saves nine but the time to stitch, I fear may no longer be there. Incumbency may not work out to your advantage.

PRESIDENTIAL LIES SERIES 2

In November 2012, the Presidency released another atomic lie. Channels TV reported:

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, who disclosed this to state House correspondents on Thursday, announced that “the President has set March, 2013 deadline for the completion of the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) and complete rehabilitation of three refineries in Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri.”

Dr Abati made this known after a meeting in the president’s office which had in attendance, the Minister of Petroleum Resources with her team including the Group Managing Director of the NNPC and other directors in the oil and gas sector, who made series of presentations.

The crux of the meeting according to the president’s aide was the state of the nation’s refineries and what steps can be taken to improve the capacities of these refineries to make them perform at their optimum.

He also revealed that the President is set for the full implementation of the task force reports, beginning with the committee on the nation’s refineries in order to boost domestic refining of crude oil products to create jobs.

It would be recalled that the committee on the Refineries which was headed by Dr Kalu Idika Kalu blamed the epileptic performance of the country’s refineries on lack of proper maintenance and funding.

Stop importation of fuel

Speaking on the reports Dr Abati said “the president has not only commended the committee on refineries, but he also made it clear that as part of the determination of his administration to make sure that Nigeria stops the importation of fuel and he subsequently directed the Minister of Petroleum Resources to take that report and look into it and then come up with action plan as to what can be done going forward.”

Dr Abati also revealed that the President demanded for a technical report to be prepared on how to get the refineries working.

Giving a break down on the present capacities of the three refineries, the President’s spokesman stated that “what the Kaduna refinery is able to produce per day now is about 110,000 barrels per day, the Port Harcourt refineries 210,000 barrel per day and the Warri refineries 125,000 barrel per day.”

Outlining the three points the president wants tackled, the presidential spokesman said the president told the team that the interest of this government is to ensure that crude oil is refined domestically and the administration’s determination to put an end to the importation of finished petroleum products because “you can refine domestically and at the same time still import because if you don’t have enough you will bridge it.”

He also expressed the president’s desire to create jobs locally in the sector because “the president’s conviction is that if you keep importing refined products, you are creating jobs for other people in other economies.

The meeting agreed to take care of the turnaround maintenance of the refineries in the immediate term and the target is that this short term intervention will be completed by March, 2013 and if that is done, that will raise the capacities of these refineries taken together to sixty five per cent.”

“But the determination is even to go beyond that to also engage in the rehabilitation of the refineries. There is a turnaround maintenance and also plan for rehabilitation” he declared.

Implementing committees report

According to Dr Abati, contrary to believe by some people that government sets up committees then refuse to implement the recommendations of such committees, “President Jonathan has already commenced the implementation of the recommendations of the committees he set up” he stated.

“The whole point of this is to make it clear that action is already being taken on the reports of the committees. The first meeting that was held today is on this issue of refineries. What I have given you is the outline. Another meeting will be fixed where further presentations would be made on the technical details on how these objectives would be achieved.”

“I think this clarification is important because since the presentation of these reports to Mr President, there has been an excessive focus on the politicisation of the Petroleum revenue task force reports whereas on that day, there were discussions relating to the refineries, there were discussions relating to the issues of governance system in the petroleum sector.”

“It is important to clarify that actually action is already being taken and for the benefit of those who think when committees submit reports, government sleeps on those reports, you can see clearly that this is not the case.”

PRESIDENTIAL LIES SERIES 4

BLATANT LIES ALL BECAUSE OF 2015

 

I am still on the Strategic Team website (www.strategicteam.org), one of the many pro-GEJ sites. And for electricity, these are some of the heavy lies they posted there:

 

The Goodluck Jonathan administration has improved the power generation from around 2000 megawatts to 4502 megawatts in December 2012 the highest since Nigeria returned to democratic rule in 1999.

 

By July this year, power generation will hit 6,000 megawatts and by December this year it will hit 10,000 megawatts (assurance given last week by Minister of State for Power).

 

All ten Power Plants under the National Integrated Power Projects (NIPP) scheme to be commissioned by the end of this year. At the moment, majority of them have reached 95 percent completion stage.

 

Improved power supply has been boosted in part by the emergency declared in the Gas sector last year by President Jonathan. At the time gas supply was insufficient. But now, thanks to the intervention by Mr. President, Nigeria now produces more gas than is required for domestic consumption.

 

For more efficient power supply, the Jonathan administration has privatized the power distribution companies (DISCOs) under a most transparent bid process.

 

Today, large parts of an unprecedented number of cities and towns across the country are enjoying between 14 to 16 hours of uninterrupted power supply, except in some few areas where localized problems of power distribution network have created bottlenecks for smooth transmission. – See more at: http://strategicteam.org/president/achievements/power/#sthash.KbKScjAW.dpuf

 

I have said it before that part of those that will make Jonathan lose so disgracefully in February are those his campaigners because they are just making things worse for him by the day. As for me, I go dey continue my work of exposing the lies. Why lie to the people in the name of campaign?

Stockholm Syndrome by Oladosu Olayinka

There is true story of a female that was kidnapped in Stockholm some years ago and was abused,later she was allowed to go out and surprisingly she chose to come back on her own,this went on for sometime.She was sighted by some vigilante and reported to police.The kidnapper was arrested,tried and jailed.

The victim became so attached to the captor,and wouldn’t want him jailed or separated from him despite all abuses she suffered,for the few that may not be aware of this ,it baffled psychologists all over the world,this eventually gave rise to a phenomenon known as Stockholm Syndrome,where the captive becomes attached to the captor,irrespective of the humiliation suffered previously.

I am just thinking of a situation that we often quote here in Nigeria,,,,,,”That the devil you know is better that the one unknown.”

Despite the corruption,the lack of focus and the inability of GEJ to control the women folks in his cabinet,for whatever reason,people are still routing for him.

Ha,my people are perishing because of ignorance and sentiment.

Each time I travel out of Nigeria,I become very unhappy because Nigeria has the best climate,vegetation and abundant human and material resources to excel.

You know what the Whites may never allow a clever,more serious ,less fleshy leader to come to power,for you and I know that if every nation is free and prosperous who will do the monkey job for the civilized nations.

Carry go my people one day our eyes will “open”

Is govt sabotaging the fight against insurgents ? Part 1

There was once a time Boko Haram terrorists were almost annihilated by the military. Then guess what? All that changed when the army chief suddenly replaced the more active,more mobile,proactive, amphibian, potent JTF with a more stationary, less active,amorphous Div 7. The Boko Haramists did find their strength ,regained it fully and even became more vicious and captured more territories, sacked police stations,even capturing military bases, even one of the only TWO Mobile police force trainning schools in Nigeria.They declared a Sultanate of Gwoza,hosting their flags on occupied territory.

The army chief later retired. Lately our Military became outstanding in the war against Boko Haram and was making progress in sterning the insurgence, even killing many of their leaders, even the main leader and his clones. Suddenly, the government asked our military to cease fire and claimed it has reached a cease fire agreement with Book Harram. Now, our Military relaxed and Boko Haram came back stronger and are capturing many cities in the North. It has further captured over 16 local govts in Yobe, Borno and Adamawa states, even having a territory bigger than 3 states. The leader of Boko Haram -Shekau (or his clone) stated categorically that there was no cease fire agreement reached with anybody.

Isn’t this a confirmation to what Nostra II said that Charles Logan (the character in Jack Bauer’s 24 hour series) has re-incarnated and rules us now.

What is our government up to?

Can our govt be fully trusted?

Are they telling us the whole truth or withholding some other info or outrightly lying to us?

Is govt sabotaging the fight against insurgents?

I hope we’ll get to know the truth one day . The whole truth !

Is govt sabotaging the fight against insurgents? Part 2

“A LESSON FOR ALL NIGERIANS

Read about how Chief of Defence Staff – Alex Baldeh used military transport plane to evacuate his family before the attack. Did he know Boko Haram was advancing for him to evacuate his family?.

Late Azazi and JEG were right by saying Boko Haram are in his govt and PDP.

“A LESSON FOR ALL NIGERIANS

Mubi, the biggest commercial town in Adamawa state, was thrown into chaos the day Boko Haram descended on them and the people found themselves running for their lives. The terrorists shot sporadically, killing a lot of people while those who could escape jumped into any available car to run to safety. Christians, Muslims, Igbos, Yorubas, Tivs, Hausas and any tribe or religion, jumped onto any vehicle that was headed outside the town.

Soldiers scampered onto trucks with civilians, begging to be saved, hundreds of people who could not get a vehicle ran into the hills. In their frantic effort to stay alive, no one paid attention to anybody’s religion or ethnicity before asking them for help or helping them to stay alive. It was a community of people, united by their desire to escape the common enemy that hunted them all without discrimination.

Ethnicity and religion vanished, all they were left with was their humanity. Those climbing the hills stayed together, helping one another stay on their feet as they all tried to survive.

The most interesting part of the narrative is that the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Badeh is from the same town of Mubi. It has been reported that few hours before the attack, helicopters flew in and evacuated his family members from the town. The chief of Defence staff by the way, is the most senior military officer in Nigeria and he controls the army, navy and air force. Before that sad day, someone from Mubi would have boasted that the Chief of Defence Staff is from their home town. But on the day that it mattered the most, he evacuated only his family members and abandoned everyone else to their fate. It means he had information of the impending attack and as the most senior military commander, he did not fly into the town to lead his men to battle to defend his community. He quietly saved only his family and left even the soldiers without an inspiring commander to motivate them to engage the terrorists and defend his community.

One lesson all Nigerians must learn from this story is that as a people, all we have is our neighbours. When you need some help at home, you knock on the door of your neighbour. The president, governor, senator or minister is not there to help you. Why then should you continue to fight your neighbour because of a man or woman who cares only about his own family? Our elites may deceive us about sharing the same religion or ethnicity with us, but time and again, they have proven that they do not care. We have been fools, killing one another on the basis of religion and ethnicity while they stay united across all the divides and plunder our wealth. The time has come for us to rise, educate one another and unite to fight our biggest common enemy. The politicians are our enemies and not the poor struggling men and women in our neighbourhoods.

What now will the people of Mubi boast about as the gain of having their son as the chief of Defence Staff? If you go to Otueke where Jonathan comes from, there are many people who live in excruciating poverty! There is still a lot of poverty and suffering in the home towns of all our governors, ministers, parliamentarians and former presidents, while they and their families live in scandalous affluence. The minister of petroleum spent over 10 billion Naira on a private jet. That money can end the poverty of several communities in her state. Stella Oduah bought two cars with 120 million Naira while there are people in her home town who can’t afford 500 Naira to feed their family in a day. The time to throw away the sentiments is now! Support only a man or woman who has a just heart and will serve everyone and every community regardless of if they come from there or not. The moment anyone begins to talk to you about religion or ethnicity, reject him summarily! We need leaders who will unite us because our shared humanity is greater than any differences between us. And if someone does something wrong or fails in governance, do not support them simply because they’re your own..

The Poor Washerwoman’s brilliant son: Deep Food 4 Thot

One young man went to apply for a managerial position in a big company. He passed the initial interview, and now would meet the director for the final interview.

The director discovered from his CV that the youth’s academic achievements were excellent.

He asked, “Did you obtain any scholarships in school?” the youth answered “no”.

” Was it your father who paid for your school fees?”

“My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.” he replied.

” Where did your mother work?”

“My mother worked as clothes cleaner.”

The director requested the youth to show his hands.

The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.

“Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?”

“Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Besides, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.

The director said, “I have a request. When you go home today, go and clean your mother’s hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.

The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high.

When he went back home, he asked his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to her son.

The youth cleaned his mother’s hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother’s hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother winced when he touched it.

This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fees. The bruises in the mother’s hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his education, his school activities and his future.

After cleaning his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother.

That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.

Next morning, the youth went to the director’s office.

The Director noticed the tears in the youth’s eyes, when he asked:

“Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?”

The youth answered,” I cleaned my mother’s hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes’

“I know now what appreciation is. Without my mother, I would not be who I am today. By helping my mother, only now do I realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done on your own. And I have come to appreciate the importance and value of helping one’s family.”

The director said, “This is what I am looking for in a manager. I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life.”

“You are hired.”

A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop an “entitlement mentality” and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent’s efforts. If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying our children instead?

You can let your child live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch on a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it. After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person.

The most important thing is your child learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done.

Food 4 thot: Socrates and The Talebearer (rumour monger)

In ancient Greece (469 – 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom.

One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who ran

up to him excitedly and said, “Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?

“Wait a moment,” Socrates replied. “Before you tell me I’d like you to pass a little test. It’s called the Triple Filter Test.” “Triple filter?”

“That’s right,” Socrates continued. “Before you talk to me about my student let’s take a moment to filter what you’re going to say. The first filter is TRUTH. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?”

“No,” the man said, “actually I just heard about it and…”

“All right,” said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not.

Now let’s try the second filter, the filter of GOODNESS. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something good?”

“No, on the contrary…”

“So,” Socrates continued, “you want to tell me something bad about him, even though you’re not certain it’s true?” The man shrugged, a little embarrassed.

Socrates continued. “You may still pass the test though,because there is a third filter – the filter of USEFULNESS. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?”

“No, not really…”

“Well,” concluded Socrates, “if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, “why tell it to me at all?”

The man was defeated and ashamed. This is the reason Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem.

Did you learn anything from this?

FACTS ABOUT MUHAMMADU BUHARI COMPARE AND CONTRAST

IN 1984. When Buhari was the head of state, the price of fuel was 20 kobo and he didn’t  increase the price till the end of his administration. In 1984 when Buhari was the head of state, the Naira had more value than the dollar. It was #1 for $1.4. Buhari did not borrow any kobo to run his government, even though Nigeria was not generating as much revenue as it is generating today. Buhari paid the dept owed by previous administrations. Buhari was refining all the petrol we use locally and was exporting petrol to other countries and making money for Nigeria. Our few refineries were working at optimal level and fuel was available to all that need it. There was no religious and ethnic crisis throughout the administration of Muhammadu Buhari. No Igbo was killed in the North and no Hausa was killed in the South as a result of religious and ethnic crisis or division. Inflation came down from 23.5% in 1983 to5.5% in 1984 and 1985 before Buhari left office as the head of state. Buhari resisted international interference from IMF to devalue our Naira and also rejected all offer to give loan to Nigeria by the international communities. Buhari introduced war against In-discipline that swept through all the country and restored discipline in Nigeria. Buhari didn’t promote himself to a full start general even as a head of state. Buhari didn’t have any foreign account or buy any property for himself as a head of state. What else do Nigerians need? What is happening today? Why are we allowing sentiments and religious bigotry to hold our country to ransom. It is Nigeria that need Buhari and not Buhari that need Nigeria. THIS IS THE CHANGE WE NEED AND WE MUST ACCEPT.-

Don’t burn the ladder you used to climb to the top : Nigerian “Mario Barlotelli” as case study

It’s not news that Ghananian born italian footballer is the ” enfant terrible ” bad boy,always getting into trouble and having all manners of weird behaviour. He gives his coaches problems at times and he’s very stubborn. This isn’t an attempt to villify him but to portray his true character.

However, Nigeria has a version of Mario Barlotelli. His name is Gbolahan Salami. He is an ex- junior international and current super eagles player who plays for Warri Wolves FC in the Nigerian Premier League – NPL.

Once upon a time,few seasons ago, Gbolahan left Sunshine FC then coached by Gbenga Ogunbote to join Shooting Stars (3SC). The next season’s opener was between Shooting Stars ,his new club and Sunshine Star,his former club. He scored a beautiful goal and celebrated it with his usual backflips. He went further to mock Gbenga Ogunbote,his former coach ,giving him an obscene jesture with his hands (telling him your papa,your mama) &turned his ass towards him,pulling down his shorts&pants&putting it back again in front of coach Ogunbote.(NPL Board banned him for few weeks for this obscene act).

Now that coach.Ogunbote is now one of the four caretaker coaches of Super Eagles&Salami is still in d super eagles. What do u think the relationship of Salami will be with his former coach? Won’t coach Ogunbote victimise Salami or even prevent him from being invited to the National camp (now that his godfather – Coach.Keshi has been sacked) ?

This provides an important lesson to us all: Don’t bite the fingers that fed u.

Do not burn the ladder you used to climb to the top. Who says u won’t need it again?.

How 2015 Presidential Elections could be: A provisional diagnosis by Nostra II

Diagnosis is a very important aspect of medicine. It is the point where the physician concludes on all he’s seen&heard so far from the history the patient gives,his questions, physical examinations and investigations and decides on the next line of action for the patient. Not to bore you with medical things but forgive this writer because he’s a medical doctor and has seen it all.The purpose of this write up is political analysis.

There are many types of diagnosis. The initial or provisional diagnosis the doctor gets from his history taking&physical examination. Here he may have other differential (or alternate) diagnoses. He sometimes sends the patient for further investigations to rule out or confirm his diagnosis. Here the investigations may or may not change his initial diagnosis. After all these he may change or confirm his diagnosis. Here he has a working diagnosis which he uses to work. Sometimes the initial diagnosis is his working disgnosis,depending on different circumstances&situations. Further tests may confirm or rule out the working diagnosis. In rare cases the final diagnosis may even be got after death during autopsy. Not to bore you with medical things or how I work,let’s get to main business.

It’s no longer news that the 2015 election is most likely going to be between President. Goodluck Jonathan and former head of state Gen.Muhammadu Buhari (retd). Before you accuse me of jumping gun,I said most likely. President Jonathan only just confirmed he’s gonna run ,even though all circumstances pointed towards that long ago (for those who discerned). His body language suggested that. The APC is yet to conduct its primaries which General Buhari may or may not be chosen. However,all points towards him being chosen as the party’s flagbearer.

The choice of running mates may also alter things for either candidate. There is a question of whether Jonathan will stick with VP Namadi Sambo or may choose another running mate. Whomsoever Buhari chooses as running mate will affect his votes across some states. Surely he won’t be foolish to make it a muslim-muslim ticket. He has some christian southern politicians to choose from. If I was in a position to influence his choice,I would tell him to avoid choosing Rochas or Amaechi or any south east politician. I would prefer Gov. Adams Oshiomole of Edo State or Gov. Kayode Fayemi (if he had won re-election). I may also consider Sen. Ajayi Boroffice. This is where an FFK or Opeyemi Bamidele could have fit in if they hadn’t decamped. He could also get a capable running mate with wide appeal. I don’t think some people will give him that wide spread appeal.

There is also potential party crises either national or state and effects of all primaries. All these can alter the course of elections and other idiopathic (unknown) factors, rigging&electoral malpractice and of course the God factor. I know all these can change the course of elections in Nigeria.

However,I’m gonna make a first analysis of how the elections will be,if they are free and fair.I have done a hard thorough research across all states to arrive at this,after several hours of analysis and research. Of course this may change depending on aforementioned factors. However,I feel it’s right to make my initial projections known. It’s however not a final projection.

This is how the states will vote come 2015.

1.Abia – Jonathan

2. Adamawa – Buhari (small margin)

3. Akwa Ibom – Jonathan

4. Anambra – Jonathan

5. Bauchi – Buhari

6. Bayelsa – Jonathan

7. Benue – Jonathan (fair margin)

8. Borno – Buhari

9. C/River – Jonathan

10. Delta – Jonathan

11. Ebonyi – Jonathan

12. Edo – Buhari (small margin but dicey)

13. Ekiti – Buhari

14. Enugu – Jonathan

15. FCT – Jonathan (small margin but very dicey)

16. Gombe – Buhari (fair margin)

17. Imo – Jonathan

18. Jigawa – Buhari

19. Kaduna – Buhari.

20. Kano – Buhari

21. Katsina – Buhari

22. Kebbi – Buhari

23. Kogi -Jonathan (small margin)

24. Kwara – Buhari

25. Lagos – Buhari (fair margin)

26. Nassarawa – Buhari( fair margin)

27. Niger – Buhari

28. Ogun – Buhari

29. Ondo – Jonathan (small margin but dicey)

30. Osun – Buhari

31. Oyo – Buhari (fair margin)

32. Plateau – Jonathan

33. Rivers – Jonathan

34. Sokoto state – Buhari

35. Taraba – Buhari (fair margin)

36. Yobe – Buhari

37. Zamfara – Buhari

As we can see Buhari has 22 states as against Goodluck’s 15 states and if considering that the larger population of the electorates reside in the North and Southwest it stands to reason that Buhari will be our next president, but that is if the contest is going to be free and fair. I’ve not even considered the game of numbers because if I did,you’ll see that Buhari has the highly populated states.

Let’s continue to watch as events unfold

Disregard Nostra II to ur peril !

We Need to know the arithmetics / statistics of Jonathan’s improvement for Nigeria in d past 6 years (if any)

In 1996 when President Bill Clinton was running for re-election in America, he was asked what he brought to Washington as President for 4 years for him to even think of 4 more years. Billl Clinton said, he brought simple Arithmetic to government so that everyone could see the figures clearly of his achievements. By the time he left office,he had created 22 million new jobs, he reduced unemployment, he took many Americans away from the welfare program, he reduced the national debt from 8 trillion to 5 trillion, his Arithmetic was so simple to understand. His job approval rating was 67 percent, the highest in the last sixty years except President Reagan was rated higher than the man from Hope Arkansas.

The question the Oracle is asking President Jonathan is the Arithmetic solution of what he brought to Abuja to even think of 4:more years.

Did he create jobs in millions? If yes give us simple Arithmetic figures.

Did he reduce unemployment from what percentage to what?

Did he fix the security problems in the country? Give us figures.

If he did not do all the above with just simple Arithmetic figures, he will need to ask himself why he is interested in second term? Or is it just about pride or what?

Only a simple Arithmetic figures on his achievement in the last six years can help him to explain why a second term is a must for him.

The Oracle says, It is diffcult to tell lies with Figures particularly if the Arithmetic is simple. We need to know.

Frank Questions About President.Jonathan’s Academic Achievements

I will ask these questions about President.Jonathan’s academic achievements and please give me answers.

1. Where on the Internet or any Academy or Learned Society can we find Jonathan’s full CV. Please help. I need to see.

2. Which book did Goodluck Jonathan Ph D ever write? Please include ISBN if you have it. Co-authored books are welcome.

3. Which journal contains any of Goodluck Jonathan’s academic writing? Or which standard textbook was written or which Book of Reading contains a chapter he wrote? Or does anyone have a Conference Procedure that contains his input?

4. Who was ever taught by Jonathan? Apart from Patience Jonathan (who apparently is not a teacher’s delight), who was inspired by Goodluck Jonathan Ph D within academic confines?

5. Who has access to Goodluck Jonathan’s. thesis at B.Sc or Ph D. levels? Or you could just tell us the title so we can google

6. Who knows anything academic that Goodluck Jonathan Ph D contributed?

I do not ask to denigrate anyone. Equity requires that these questions be answered before he and his warriors can take on Buhari on the same issues

These questions are good and valid but I think it is too late to ask those questions, even now. In a civilized society any academic contributions, writings, even essays or opinions are part of discussions before any candidate is given the opportunity to taste power.

In America, I could recall all the professors of Barrack Obama were all interviewed, they found one who was a socialist and they also found a former Pastor of the then Senator Obama who abused the country at one time.
My point is this, it is not a crime to ask questions, or dig into the past of out past leaders or anyone planning to lead the nation, but in a country full of those with arrested education, it would be considered an insult to ask question from the man with resource control about his PhD in Animal Science or the type of animals he liked when he doing his Animal study stuff.
I need answers !!!

Why President.Jonathan may lose 2015 Elections by A Concerned Niger Delta Youth

( Extracts of an Open Letter to President Jonathan)

…I have read and listened carefully to thousands of youths and how the iron rod of oppression has continued to batter their future in a nation that has a mighty wealth.

Your proem to the presidency witnessed one of the greatest supports from the average class and youths of the very society you now govern as the number one citizen.

Since 2011, we have not seen the benefit of leadership. The touts have been empowered by different means, while the young intellectuals keep facing the dark abyss of economic dungeon. The partial removal of fuel subsidy was an initiative of the federal government, but what are some of the benefits to the youths of this nation. The direct beneficiary of the SURE-P lies within the domicile of same bourgeois, who have continuously issued a cheque to the youths, signed “NO FUTURE”. To what extent has the programme elate the sadness of the masses that joyfully welcome your shoeless and bagless episode and sold their lives to your course to ensure you emerge the winner of the 2011 presidential election. The sycophants around you who hang every opportunity and let same it down, but only to their cronies, friends and children. To be truthful with you my president, the GDP, economic growth, and employment figures quoted daily on paper does not reflect the reality of conscious happenings.

Never be too confident about emerging the winner of your 2015 Presidential elections as the incumbent. Those who think the saga of 2011 will repeat itself are truly not in touch with reality. In 2011, there was no mega opposition at the centre. The emergence of the APC should not be taken for granted because the North produced different candidates for that election and if they venture harmonize, and project a single acceptable candidate, you may not find it easy. Never trust on some Northern governors claiming to be behind you, for it is only when the rubber meets the road their true colours crystallizes.

What about the Christians? They have also not benefitted from your government because only the Christian Hierarchies keep getting the dividends from your government. Going back to the teeming youth population where you’ll get your vote, remember if the opposition picks their vice presidential running mate from the South-West, their votes will be full because they didn’t get good vote from the South-West in 2011. Coming home to your South-South Region, Delta State is divided because of the perceived imposition of Anthony Obuh by the incumbent governor Emmanuel Uduaghan. Edo and Rivers States is 80% in the hands of the APC. What about the South East that in also divided against the PDP? Never be too confident my President.

The corruption in your government begs for critical evaluation and fundamental examination. I cannot even chronicle the tsunami of probes carried out without prosecution, is it the police pension scam, oil subsidy fraud, bullet proof car scandal, the NIS recruitment that killed tens, the $20billion missing fund or $28billion petroleum minister chattered jet, the list goes on ad infinitum but the average youths cannot afford even two rectangular meal a day let alone square. Mr. President, we are disappointed and among those suppressed youths in Nigeria, I wish to channel to you our grievances why the youth of the nation, specifically the South-South may individually boycott voting and face headlong struggle that will put food on their table.

You have only appealed to the Northern Oligarchy and not the average northern youth because your administration has not carried the youths along in policy and implementation though it is constantly done on paper.

The youths of South-South who have not experienced economic difference in their lives since you emerged the president will obviously not waste their time to stand in one queue or another under the sun or rain because of election. You aroused their hopes in 2011 and have somewhat killed it before 2015. The ladies of course will tell their men to relax and rest during the day so that they can spend time together at night. I understand the social life of my Southern brothers and sisters and will make bold to state that we’ll listen to our ladies more than the voice of our leaders. However, valentine means nothing to our Northern brothers and sisters and will therefore come out fully into the streets to vote. The opposition in the South will also take the voting serious and will want to deliver their states for APC.

The rate of unemployment, joblessness and poverty is unthinkable. The youth of this nation still wallows in the hallow chamber of economic injustice. The financial disequilibrium has been very obvious. The Youths are not independent and the nation has presented to us a cheque of hopelessness yet fastening our legs to the inescapable rod of bankruptcy. The unspeakable horrors of joblessness among the Nigerian youth is reflected in the gross malady of the boko-haram sect and it has widened the gap for insecurity, robbery, kidnapping, cybercrime and many social vices and anti-patriotic activities. We cannot as a nation, trivialize the degrading economic tranquility while our nation continues to be the greatest purveyor of economic injustice in the world.

The conspicuous space between wealth and abject poverty has left an ultimate contemplation in the minds of dynamic youths. We do not detest our policy makers but will not align to the policies that have kept us in perpetual ruins. We respect the structures but will not cooperate with the system that has battered us with the acrimonious whip of dehumanization. The volatile tenseness as a result of idleness must not be allowed to explode on a defenseless nation you preside over.

The sycophantic viciousness of some of those around you has sent a bad image of your good person to many citizens in and outside the country. I’m neither an APC nor a PDP apologist but your good image has been tarnished by those who represent you at various levels. Let it therefore be known that a stitch in time saves nine but the time to stitch, I fear may no longer be there. Incumbency may not work out to your advantage.

PRESIDENTIAL LIES SERIES 2

In November 2012, the Presidency released another atomic lie. Channels TV reported:
 
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, who disclosed this to state House correspondents on Thursday, announced that “the President has set March, 2013 deadline for the completion of the Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) and complete rehabilitation of three refineries in Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri.”
 
Dr Abati made this known after a meeting in the president’s office which had in attendance, the Minister of Petroleum Resources with her team including the Group Managing Director of the NNPC and other directors in the oil and gas sector, who made series of presentations.
 
The crux of the meeting according to the president’s aide was the state of the nation’s refineries and what steps can be taken to improve the capacities of these refineries to make them perform at their optimum.
 
He also revealed that the President is set for the full implementation of the task force reports, beginning with the committee on the nation’s refineries in order to boost domestic refining of crude oil products to create jobs.
 
It would be recalled that the committee on the Refineries which was headed by Dr Kalu Idika Kalu blamed the epileptic performance of the country’s refineries on lack of proper maintenance and funding.
 
Stop importation of fuel
 
Speaking on the reports Dr Abati said “the president has not only commended the committee on refineries, but he also made it clear that as part of the determination of his administration to make sure that Nigeria stops the importation of fuel and he subsequently directed the Minister of Petroleum Resources to take that report and look into it and then come up with action plan as to what can be done going forward.”
 
Dr Abati also revealed that the President demanded for a technical report to be prepared on how to get the refineries working.
 
Giving a break down on the present capacities of the three refineries, the President’s spokesman stated that “what the Kaduna refinery is able to produce per day now is about 110,000 barrels per day, the Port Harcourt refineries 210,000 barrel per day and the Warri refineries 125,000 barrel per day.”
 
Outlining the three points the president wants tackled, the presidential spokesman said the president told the team that the interest of this government is to ensure that crude oil is refined domestically and the administration’s determination to put an end to the importation of finished petroleum products because “you can refine domestically and at the same time still import because if you don’t have enough you will bridge it.”
 
He also expressed the president’s desire to create jobs locally in the sector because “the president’s conviction is that if you keep importing refined products, you are creating jobs for other people in other economies.
 
The meeting agreed to take care of the turnaround maintenance of the refineries in the immediate term and the target is that this short term intervention will be completed by March, 2013 and if that is done, that will raise the capacities of these refineries taken together to sixty five per cent.”
 
“But the determination is even to go beyond that to also engage in the rehabilitation of the refineries. There is a turnaround maintenance and also plan for rehabilitation” he declared.
 
Implementing committees report
 
According to Dr Abati, contrary to believe by some people that government sets up committees then refuse to implement the recommendations of such committees, “President Jonathan has already commenced the implementation of the recommendations of the committees he set up” he stated.
 
“The whole point of this is to make it clear that action is already being taken on the reports of the committees. The first meeting that was held today is on this issue of refineries. What I have given you is the outline. Another meeting will be fixed where further presentations would be made on the technical details on how these objectives would be achieved.”
 
“I think this clarification is important because since the presentation of these reports to Mr President, there has been an excessive focus on the politicisation of the Petroleum revenue task force reports whereas on that day, there were discussions relating to the refineries, there were discussions relating to the issues of governance system in the petroleum sector.”
 
“It is important to clarify that actually action is already being taken and for the benefit of those who think when committees submit reports, government sleeps on those reports, you can see clearly that this is not the case.”

Port Harcourt was the only place that had electricity in Nigeria when I was brought here in 1955
– State House Christmas Carol Service,2011
This is from someone whose CV says he was born in 1957. Or am I missing something? Did he die to later re-incarnate again into his mother’s womb? Hahahahaha

Well, there is just no way I can take our President serious. You vote for whoever you like but the truth is out there for all to see.
(To be continued)

Stockholm Syndrome

There is true story of a female that was kidnapped in Stockholm some years ago and was abused,later she was allowed to go out and surprisingly she chose to come back on her own,this went on for sometime.She was sighted by some vigilante and reported to police.The kidnapper was arrested,tried and jailed.
The victim became so attached to the captor,and wouldn’t want him jailed or separated from him despite all abuses she suffered,for the few that may not be aware of this ,it baffled psychologists all over the world,this eventually gave rise to a phenomenon known as Stockholm Syndrome,where the captive becomes attached to the captor,irrespective of the humiliation suffered previously.
I am just thinking of a situation that we often quote here in Nigeria,,,,,,”That the devil you know is better that the one unknown.”
Despite the corruption,the lack of focus and the inability of GEJ to control the women folks in his cabinet,for whatever reason,people are still routing for him.
Ha,my people are perishing because of ignorance and sentiment.
Each time I travel out of Nigeria,I become very unhappy because Nigeria has the best climate,vegetation and abundant human and material resources to excel.
You know what the Whites may never allow a clever,more serious ,less fleshy leader to come to power,for you and I know that if every nation is free and prosperous who will do the monkey job for the civilized nations.
Carry go my people one day our eyes will “open”
