FACTS ARE SACRED AND TRUTH SUBLIME.
Who were those who donated 22b to GEJ and what’s in it for them? I’m certain that such humongous donation is for selfish gain and not for public good….The more Billionaires GEJ has made the more poverty and joblessness in the land, solve the riddle and see how corruption chauffeurs/drives our national vehicle. Sad.
The PDP after 16years of rudderless governance at the Federal level has lost initiative, they have lost any and every modicum of morality hence they now see POWER as an ATM machine and leadership a Bazaar, we MUST stop them before GEJ and his cronies buy up all that is left of Nigeria. They bought PHCN, whilst yet keeping the nation in darkness they gave GEJ’s campaign a ‘thank you’ donation of 500m, do you yet wonder, under GEJ corruption rules.
Can anyone Islamize Nigeria? Impossible; when as a Military President IBB surreptitiously got Nigeria into the Organization of Islamic Countries OIC was he able to Islamize Nigeria? No; will Buhari Islamize Nigeria, he cannot and will not; is Buhari a bigot? Absolutely not, with a Christian son-in-law and a daughter that is a Christian convert haba!! With more Christian Military Administrators and Ministers when he was Head of State, the attempt to wear GMB the tag of a bigot or a fundamentalist won’t stick.
Is Buhari a saint no, but compared to his opponent GEJ, Buhari is a saint ten times over, even his worst detractors cannot deny this truism. Will Buhari fight corruption, yes, and that is why those who are scared went donating 22B to GEJ to sustain corruption and protect the corrupt, but no one can buy Nigeria not now, not anymore.
*Femi Fani-Kayode joined GEJ and the 17B corruption case filed against him by the EFCC was dropped.
*Chief Ifeanyi Uba of Capital Oil floated TAN (Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria) and AMCON was asked to vacate Capital Oil premises and hand it back to him, how they intend to pay back the 50B Capital Oil owes the Banks is now a moral question before TAN, GEJ and Uba.
*Stealing is different from corruption such is the hardcore of GEJ’s unresearched philosophy BUT the wind of CHANGE is here, we shall VOTE OUT CORRUPTION and restore our nation to the path of moral rectitude.

2014 Biggest goofs countdown. 14 Biggest goofs of 2014
So let’s take a look at the 14 biggest goofs of 2014
14 . “We are committed to solving the problem in the North-Eastern part of the country. The crisis in the North-East is not a big deal. It is just that we have not come together to work out strategies to tackle the problems properly.”- former General Officer Commanding the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army (now the Commandant, Depot, Niigerian Army), Maj. Gen. Shehu Yusuf, said in February, 2014.
I wonder why the army is still yet to work out strategies to tackle the problem that has proven to be such a big deal;
13. “We all bear some pains, from the highest to the least because as a President, I may not go to everywhere I would have loved to go, these are some of the challenges I have to face.”- President Jonathan admitting that Boko Haram was restricting his movements within the country;
Don’t let me say the president is afraid and a c*w**d but it appears so. If people without bodyguards are forced to serve through NYSC in those places, I wonder why the man in control of all the nation’s security apparatus is still afraid to go to some parts. O ma se o ( great pity)
12. “The Petroleum Minister (Alison Maduekwe) has appeared before the Parliament for over 200 days… in the Nigerian Parliament you’ll agree with me that there is more politics than work.”- President Jonathan when asked about the attitude of the Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke to calls for her to appear before the House of Representative members over her alleged utilisation of public funds in hiring private jets;
11. “I never said Boko Haram infiltrated my cabinet. The FEC is the cabinet made up of the President, VP and ministers, what I said is that in “the government which is made up of three arms.”- President Jonathan;
10. “Igbo remains one ethnic group in Nigeria that is so devoid of any shame to show their greed, selfishness and contempt for other ethnic groups… the Igbo are mercenaries; they are there for sale. If the devil were to come today to say, ‘I am the devil about whom the Bible and the Quran have spoken, I am prepared to give money’, the Igbo will take the money and vote for him. Quote me!”- Convener of the Coalition of Northern politicians, academics, professionals and businessmen, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, said during an interview;
9. “People do not understand the burden this President is bearing. He’s like Jesus Christ. He’s bearing the burden of everybody”- Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, and one of the govt’s big Vuvuzelas, while speaking about his boss;
8. “The challenge of the country is not poverty, but redistribution of wealth.”- President Goodluck Jonathan said while faulting the World Bank report which placed Nigeria among the countries with the highest level of poverty in the world;
7. “I don’t know where they are… there is no confirmation of the location of the schoolgirls, you are a journalist, you know more than me.”- President Jonathan, while admitting that he had no clue where the abducted Chibok girls were, adding that the journalist asking the question ought to know more than him;
6. “Those that died at the Immigration stampede died as a result of impatience” – Minister of Interior Affairs, Abba Moro;
5. “People exaggerate corruption in Nigeria. It is not even our first or second problem, maybe the third”- President Jonathan
4. “Over 70% of what are called corruption (cases), even by EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) and other anti-corruption agencies, is not corruption, but common stealing.” “People have been confusing corruption with stealing. If public officers steal money they term it under corruption… – President Jonathan;
3. “It is not possible to steal $20bn and America will not know. It is their money.”- President Jonathan
2. “…I will do my best. I don’t expect praises now. It’s when you leave that people will begin to compare you with others…”. Nigerians will appreciate me when I leave Office – Jonathan.
President Goodluck Jonathan has said that Nigerians will appreciate the good works he has done for the country after he has left office.
Thanks Mr president, we will surely praise you around February 17th 2015 when you concede defeat to Buhari. We praise you more on May 29th when you hand over the reins of leadership to Buhari!!!
1. “Do you come with two teachers? You were not informed too? Ehn? Continue… No problem… No problem God will see us. There is God in everything we are doing. Those bloods that are sharing in Borno will answer. What of two teachers… two … eerrrm… WAEC. Two teachers that can tell that they conducted that exam… Do you come with any? Principal… No too? Only you waka come? Okay. Now the first lady is calling you. Come, I want to help you find your child… Your missing child. Will you keep quiet? Chai! Chai! There is God ooo. The bloods that we are sharing, there is God ooo. There is God oo There is God oo (breaks down in tears)”- the wife of the President, Patience Jonathan, said while carrying out an inquisition into the abduction of the Chibok girls.
Happy New Year again

When the president recklessly breaks the law
Section 91(9) of the Electoral Act reads, “An individual or other entity shall not donate more than N1,000,000 (one million naira) to any candidate.”
Sub-section 10 of the same section adds that a presidential candidate “who knowingly acts in contravention of this section commits an offence and on conviction is liable to a maximum fine of N1m or imprisonment for a term of 12 months or both.”
Section 91(2) of the same Act states that, “The maximum election expenses to be incurred by a candidate at a presidential election shall be N1bn.”
…GEJ broke the law in all ways to raise his 21 billion naira war chest. How can our president have total disregard for the law? Is he so desperate?
In the U.S , Rev Jesse Jackson’s son a member of the house of reps and wife were both found guilty for misuse of campaign funds and were both sentenced to serve terms in prison. In Nigeria this would be business as usual. If we must run the presidential system of government, we must be ready to follow the constitution. All those who donated above the stipulated amount to support any campaign should be picked up and tried in the court. What is the attorney general doing? No one should be above the law of the land.
Stop corruption, stop impunity, stop lawlessness.
…and let’s put an end to this recklessness.

Be Humble, Love& Respect those around you
Musa worked at a meat distribution factory.
One day, when he finished with his work
schedule, he went into the meat cold room
(Freezer) to inspect something, but in a
moment of bad luck, the door closed and he
was locked inside with no help in sight.
Although he screamed and knocked with all
his might, his cries went unheard as no one
could hear him.
Most of the workers had already gone, and
outside the cold room (freezer) it’s impossible
to hear what was going on inside.
Five hours later, whilst Musa was on the
verge of death, the security guard of the
factory, eventually open the door and saved
the life of Musa.
Musa then asked the security guard how he
got to open the door, as it wasn’t part of his
His explanation: “I’ve been working in this
factory for 35 years, hundreds of workers
come in and out every day, but you’re one of
the few who greets me in the morning and
says goodbye to me every night when leaving
after working hours.
Many treat me as if I am invisible. Today, like
every other day, you greeted me in your
simple manner ‘ Hello ‘ at the entrance when
resuming for work. …..But curiously, after
working hours today, I observed I’ve not
heard your ‘ bye! see you tomorrow ‘. Hence I
decided to check around the factory.
I look forward to your
‘ Hi ‘
‘ bye ‘ every day.
To you, I am someone. By not hearing your
farewell, I knew something had happened.
Then I Sought and found u!
“Moral Lesson to reflect upon:.. Be humble,
love and respect those around you.
As life is too short! Try to have an impact on
people in ways we can’t even imagine,
especially the people that cross your part

I prefer to go back to d 80s with d wind of change
Doyin Okupe said that Buhari/Osinbajo will take Nigeria back to d 80s if elected. So what? If they can’t make d 2000s worthwhile who doesn’t want back the 80s? In d Nigeria of d 1980s, we slept in considerable safety. In d Nigeria of d 80s, our Naira was at par with d dollar. In d Nigeria of d 80s, we had roads, schools, hospitals & infrastructures that were better managed, & electricity was relatively constant.
I will rather return to d 1980s than to ride on a reverse gear in d 2000s. A reverse gear down d path of unbridled corruption; infrastructural decay; terror & insurgency; poverty & joblessness; false statistics & deceit; darkness & power outage; & down d reverse gear where only JONATHANIANS falsely see progress.
I CHOOSE DEEP & RESEARCHED FACTS over BANAL SENTIMENTS.
Buhari may not be the ideal President. But when compared to his main rival, GEJ, who brings nothing to the table, Buhari Presidency may just be inevitable. His major promise has been to work hard to fight corruption. And that’s key. Buhari does not appeal to me as someone who understands modern economic dynamics. An astute and dynamic Deputy and a vibrant cabinet may help.
Nigeria is bleeding, almost to a point of death. A period of oil boom just ended, nothing to show for it. If fighting corruption, blocking leakages and reducing rent taking is all Buhari can achieve, Nigeria will make progress.
Let the Wind of #CHANGE Blow. Let It Blow. Let It Blow till GEJ retires happily to Otuoke.”

FOR A LASTING PEACE IN THE HEALTH SECTOR
I have since been bombarded by barrage of calls from friends, many of whom are also members of JOHESU on the reason behind my obviously deafening silence since the JOHESU’s strike action started! My response then was, ‘igba to ba re ija la nla’ i.e. you only settle a quarrel when the duo concerned are tired of fighting each other!
I would have not even bothered to put anything up about JOHESU if not for the information I got from VANGUARD this morning. It will be recalled that for months now, the Joint Health Sector Unions who goes by the aegis ‘JOHESU’ – comprising of all health workers and paramedics (mobilizing against Medical Doctors) have thrown the Federal Government owned Hospitals into pandemonium as they did not only embarked on an industrial strike action but ensured that they put icing on their cakes by locking up offices, stores and laboratories in these Institutions with absolute recklessness and impunity, thus preventing the medical doctors from carrying out their legitimate duties of providing unhindered medical services to the poor masses who come to the hospitals to seek treatment.
I will not bother to inform the public on the conspiracy behind the creation of JOHESU as a body, their plan to take over Nigerian Labour Congress, the role of Medical Laboratory Scientists-who have always felt short-changed from time immemorial, I will not talk on how my noble brothers-PHARMACISTS and my angels-NURSES are being ‘USED’ to complement the efforts of JOHESU (sooner than later they will realize this). No, I will not talk on the role of some expired House of Representative Members who are fueling the embers of discord in the health sector, I refuse to comment on the dirty role of some media personnel in propagating this inordinate ambition of JOHESU, neither will I talk on the foot dragging of the Federal Government in saying ‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH to the state of acrimony and anomaly the Health Sector has been thrown into.
I am however annoyed that JOHESU who comprised over 80% of YAYALE AHMED PRESIDENTIAL COMMITTEE ON INTRA-PROFESSIONAL RIVALRY IN THE HEALTH SECTOR could shamelessly come out to say that they are rejecting the same very report they helped drafted!!!…Goddam!!!
Is this how Tax Payers money spent on the Committee should be allowed to go down the drains again just because some people felt wronged because their broad daylight treachery was not allowed to see the light of the day!!! What is wrong with this JOHESU?
For an example, why will someone with 2 or 3years diploma certificate training in one health course suddenly wake up and realize that he/she could achieve his/her God given potentials of BECOMING THE HEAD OF THE MEDICAL TEAM/CMD/SPECIALIST/CONSULTANTS etc and that the only way to do that is not by GOING THROUGH THE APPROPRIATE MEDICAL SCHOOL TRAINING but by taking TRIPLE/QUADRUPLE JUMP, thus bypassing all academic protocols and SUDDENLY arriving at his/her DREAM!!!
WHERE ON EARTH DO LABORATORY SCIENTISTS, RADIOGRAPHERS, OPTHOMETRISTS, RECORD OFFICERS, TYPISTS, WARD MAIDS, WATER /POWER ENGINEERS, HOSPITAL BUS DRIVERS and other members of this amorphous body set up to FIGHT Doctors LEAD THE MEDICAL TEAM?…WHERE? Why do we turn things upside down in this country???
Why will a SSCE holder be envious of an OND holder…why will an OND holder envy HND/B.Sc holder???…why will a M.Sc holder envy a Ph.D holder or a Professor????…Everyone can achieve his/her potentials…Yes! But not through this means JOHESU!!!…You can’t be going through these crooked ways in order to lead the Medical Team.
I am an adherent Supporter of the fact that we ALL should work together as a TEAM, but the 6-8years academic training that a MEDICAL DOCTOR receives in Medical School and Post Graduate Colleges is geared towards making him/her able to lead the medical team effectively when he/she graduates. The very reason why you see him / her going through different posting in ALL areas of medicine (including, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Laboratory, Pharmacy, Radiography etc). If Federal Government/Nigerians/JOHESU doesn’t want the doctors to assume this role, then Federal Government through the Ministry of Education should simply REVIEW THE MEDICAL COLLEGE CURRICULUM rather than impose unnecessary hardship on the medical doctors who go through a lot to graduate from medical school and in this same manner spend years before becoming Consultants/Specialists. Nigerians have suffered enough and should not be made to suffer any longer because of the inordinate ambition of this JOHESU!!!
By the way, wondering why JOHESU have not gone on strike to force the Federal Government to increase the budgetary allocation on health? Why have they not gone on strike to force the National Assembly to pass the Mental Health Bill which has been lying fallow for over 30 years in the National Assembly? Why have they not gone on strike to force the Federal Government to give all Nigerians free universal health coverage the way it is done in Taiwan and almost in South-Africa, Ghana and in Botswana???
IT’S HIGH TIME JOHESU SHEATHED HER SWORD BY HONOURING THE YAYALE AHMED REPORT AND ALLOW IT TO BE ADOPTED IN ORDER FOR PEACE TO REIGN IN OUR PUBLIC HEALTH INSTITUTIONS, failure of which the Federal Government should take the bull by the horn and PASS THIS REPORT without any further DELAY.
The doctors have their grouse about the report, but as ‘leaders’ who want peace-will accept the report as it where for peace to reigns…What else, any body or group of bodies who do not feel comfortable with what the employer has marshalled out should resign. Is it employees that should tell employers what to do? Or the other way round?

THE DIFFERENCE BTW THE PDP & THE APC.
As at May 29, 1999, we had 23 PDP governors, 6 AD,
& 7 APP. Eight years after, this is their story: (A) PDP (23 governors)
1. James lbori – PDP Delta – in prison for looting
2. DSP Alamieseigha – PDP Bayelsa – Ex-
convict for looting
3. Lucky Igbinedion – PDP Edo – Ex-convict for looting
4. Peter Odili – PDP Rivers – In court for
5. Chimaroke Nnamani – PDP Enugu – In
court for looting
6. Ayo Fayose – PDP Ekiti – In court for looting
7. Rasheed Ladoja – PDP Oyo – In court for looting
8. Alao Akala – PDP Oyo – In court for looting
9. Gbenga Daniel – PDP Ogun – In court for looting
10. Ikenna Ohakim – PDP Imo – In court for looting
11. Adamu Muazu – Bauchi (current PDP
National Chairman) – In court for looting over N19 Billion from the state treasury
12. Joshua Dariye – PDP Plateau – In court for looting
13. Jolly Nyame – PDP Taraba – In court for looting the state treasury
14. Abdulahi Adamu – PDP Nassarawa – In court for looting the state treasury
15. Boni Haruna – PDP Adamawa – (newly appointed minister by President Jonathan) – In court for looting the treasury
16. Saminu Turaki – E-Gov. PDP Jigawa – In court for looting the treasury
17. Orji Uzor Kalu – PDP Abia – In court for looting the treasury
B. From AD to AC, 6 govs NO Ex governor has ever been taken to court for treasury looting.
NOTE:- Tinubu of Lagos was dragged to Code of Conduct Tribunal for having foreign accounts while in power against govt policy of zero foreign acct for public officials. He was found not guilty because he had the accounts before his election to the office of governor. Case dismissed.
(C) APP – (ANPP) 7 governors
1. Attahiru Baffarawa – APP Sokoto – In court
for looting (he is now a PDP member)
2. Prince Abubakar Audu – ANPP Kogi – In court for looting.
So APC made up of AD/ AC/ACN of the past is leading the pack. Does it not make perfect sense to allow these people to lead at the center?’ THINK.

DON’T VOTE A PRESIDENT THAT REWARDS CORRUPTION VOTE CHANGE.
He rewards the corrupt and subjugates the hardworking, a certain Dr Udenta Udenta worked tirelessly to make the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria TAN the envy of the opposition, alas when the political harlot driven by greed and lucre left the APC back to the PDP a Party he dumped only a few months before but returned to because jail was staring him in the face for the 17billion Aviation funds he allegedly misappropriated as Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode was thus forgiven, the charges against him dropped and he was rewarded with the rank of the Director of Media and Publicity for the campaign of a President who loves corruption.
Mohammed Abacha had all the corruption charges against him in Court dropped and rewarded with the PDP Governorship ticket for Kano State.
Chief Ifeanyi Uba got back his Capital Oil from AMCON and the Banks and persons he was owing over 50b left in the cold because he set up the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria TAN to campaign for Jonathan.
He encourages and relishes in corruption, he criticises Buhari for jailing Nwobodo, saying Nwobodo shouldn’t have been jailed because he stole a little. He says corruption is not stealing and vice versa, that what we call corruption can be mere stealing. He shifts the inauguration of his campaign directorate by a day because he lost his sister but couldn’t shift his declaration by a day when close to a 100 school children were bombed to death whilst singing the National Anthem at the Assembly ground in the Govt School in Yobe. He is not a patriot, and to him love is alien.
Truth be told only the corrupt, the soulless, the Godless, those driven by lucre and selfish gain, bigots, ethnic jingoists, sectionalists and the shameless will VOTE for GEJ come February 14th, 2015.
Enough is Enough Nigerians VOTE change.

Nigerian(s) Have Suffered Enough:
I was embarrassed few days ago watching MR. PRESIDENT speech on national tv. GEJ could not give us comprehensive account of his six years stewardship but was busy attacking past leaders of the country. I had always said on this platform that GEJ for me is the most confused President I ve ever seen in a while now.
Four key events to prove my points;
(1) Mr President told us on 2nd week of January 2014 that Nigerian will ve minimum of 20hrs of uninterrupted power supply by June 2014. June came no action and just Nov 2014 the same Presidency came out and said the issue of power is technical! One begins to wonder didn’t GEJ knew the issue of power was technical when he made the promise to Nigerian? To make it worst there is no time line now for uninterrupted power supply for Nigerian.
(2) The same president told us mid last year that stealing is not corruption that Nigeria problem is not corruption. Now 30 days to election GEJ is telling Nigerian if re-elected he will fight corruption. Who is fooling who?
(3) October 2012 GEJ revoke and council PPP (Private Public Partnership) contract on Lagos- Ibadan Express Road and re-awarded it to Julius Berger and RCC, this was a contract awarded by OBJ on PPP. A year later, December 2013 the same Government came back and said there is no fund to complete the project and is now advocating for PPP on Lagos- Ibadan Express Way and other major roads in Nigeria including the 2nd Niger Bridge linking Asaba to Onisha. How else confused a President could be?
(4) GEJ awarded contracts to some of his kinsmen (Ex-militants) to protect our pipe lines, the same Presidency is now complaining of vandelisation of gas pipe lines in the Niger Delta. The country continues to use Tax Payers money to pay this Ex-militants who now fly private jets all around the country.
Lagos State built 6 independent power plants (IPP) in 8yrs now servicing almost all public infrastructures in Lagos. I pay crazy bills every month for Energy I never consumed to Ikeja Distribution Company (IKDC). The slogan from the Presidency is we ve deliver on power by privatizing it, who is fooling who? If Nigerian(s) could remember this same Power companies that are crying there is no fund to upgrade their systems for efficient service delivering, but supported GEJ re-election campaign with 5 BILLION Nigeria Naira. The companies that have not gotten it right are now having the support of MR PRESIDENT to increase tariff on power consumption this year. Who is fooling who?
My voice is just that of an ordinary Nigeria that is totally fed up with the system, who has no affiliation to any of the political parties for now. Thank you Nigerian(s),

Matters arising: Tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth

(2) What did you tell me was your reason for not going after Boko haram insurgents even when I told you this will boomerang?
(3) What happened to the Nigeria’s external reserve and sovereign wealth fund?
(4) Did you give licence to Niger Delta Militants (Dokubo and Toompolo) to import arms in the name of their privately owned companies? If so, for what reasons?
(5) Did you not get correspondence from the United States consulate that a certain citizen named Buruji Kashamu is indicted for Drug trafficking? Why did you appoint the same Kashamu as South West leader of PDP rather than hand him over to the US? And did the PDP give automatic senate ticket to a wanted and convicted drug baron?…

NIGERIA MISSES DEFENDING AFCON ’15
Two years ago, Nigerians were divided over whether DSTV (plus other foreign satillite stations alone will show it) or NTA and other local TV stations too will show it. Today AFCON is even no longer a topic of discussion among Nigerians.
AFCON – African Cup of Nations 2015 begins today with 16 african countries fighting for honour in Equitorial Guinea while the defending champ – Nigeria’s Super Eagles is thousands of miles away in Yemen playing an obscure football friendly wt an obscure nation! O ma se o (pity). It pains my heart even though my people are reaping what they sowed.
I warned my people before & after the World Cup that a finished clueless coach like KESHI is not the right man to lead the Eagles to the next level. My people just didn’t just only not list nor heed Nostra II’s advice but many chose to call me derogatory names. In the end Keshi didn’t only lead us nowhere,he chose to take us back into the doldrums and dustbin. O ma se o (pity). I was VERY VINDICATED to the shame of my haters.

YES, BUHARI IS SICK; AND SO AM I
Nigerians and their infinite capacity for facile propaganda. I wake up this morning and what I see all over social media is some poor taste, childish diagnosis of Major General Buhari as being sick.
Well, I agree. I agree that Buhari is sick. I am sick, too. Any Nigerian who is not sick is not sick because he or she is incurably sick. We are all sick. And we should be sick. So, yes,…
…Buhari is sick of the monumental corruption that has become institutionalized in Nigeria;
…Buhari is sick of the incompetence. of a government that cannot protect the lives and properties of its citizens;
…Buhari is sick of the lack of a sense of urgency in the circles of government in Nigeria;
…Buhari is sick of a country that has placed itself on permanent reverse gear;
…Buhari is sick of a country that has left itself naked as it is raped dry by vagabonds in power;
…Buhari is sick of a youth population without jobs;
…Buhari is sick of a country where university education has become comparable to 8th grade competence in advanced civilizations;
…Buhari is sick of a country where roads are death traps;
…Buhari is sick of a country where people go into political offices near poor, but turn stupendously wealthy overnight;
…Buhari is sick of a country where education is priced beyond the reach of the common masses;
…Buhari is sick of a country where $20 Billion (possibly $40 Billion) of public fund develops legs and walks away, its whereabouts knowingly unknown;
…Buhari is sick of watching the country he loves ranked at the bottom of corruption index by Transparency International
Buhari is sick of a country that earns billions of dollars in oil revenue, yet has not a single functional oil refinery;
…Buhari is sick of a country where government has bowed to the dictates of power generator cabals in a conspiracy that ensures perpetual darkness;
…Buhari is sick of a country where senators and congressmen earn more than the president of the United States of America;
…Buhari is sick of a country where soldiers are so demoralized to confront a ragtag Boko Haram terror sect;
…Buhari is sick of a country where convicted looters are pardoned and fast tracked for senate positions;
…Buhari is sick of a country where life expectancy is among the lowest in the world;
…Buhari is sick of a country that is on international news for all the wrong reasons;
So, yes, Buhari is sick; and so am I.
Question is why is Jonathan not sick as well? Why has Jonathan remained healthy in the face of all the above-listed filth and diseases? Question is why is not every Nigerian sick of all the social maladies and existential outbreaks? It is a time to be sick, my friends. Buhari is; I am. Are you?
Let’s all get sick of where and how Nigeria is. Let’s get real sick. And the sicker we are, the healthier we are going to be. Let’s schedule a doctor’s visit on February 14. Let’s not forget our health insurance card (voter card) as we go for this February appointment. We need to feel better. But until February 14, let’s feel sick…

LETTER TO MY CHRISTIAN COMPATRIOTS
By Elvis Iyorngurum
Beloved in Christ, in 2011 they told you to vote a Christian as president to prevent the Islamisation of Nigeria. Four years later, it is obvious that the message was straight from the pit of hell. Today it is very doubtful to say the ‘christian president’ you voted is indeed a christian. How does it profit the church that there has been so much bloodshed under the rule of this man? He refused to arm the military after squandering over 4trillion Naira he budgeted for defence, and millions of dollars donated to our country by foreign governments to support our war against Boko Haram. Our poorly armed soldiers are forced to run away when Boko Haram attacks communities because the enemy is more equipped than they are. Our dear army that is known to be one of the most effective in the world! Thousands of our poor soldiers have already been killed like chickens, leaving their wives as widows and rendering their children fatherless. Is Boko Haram bigger than the giant of Africa? How can a ragtag group of terrorists overrun the best military in Africa? To make matters worse for our gallant men and women, they are going to kill over 200 of them for ‘mutiny’ and have announced the dismissal of 2000 for refusing to go and die.
The attitude of the man has made many to believe he allowed Boko Haram to thrive so that he will extend his tenure with the excuse that we are at war. He also hoped that even if his tenure is not extended, with the insurgency, elections will not hold in the North East and he will simply thumb print the region’s votes for himself. Is this how a christian should rule? Should a christian have abandoned the Chibok girls after they were abducted and lied against those advocating for their rescue by calling them APC? Two thousand (2000) people were killed in Baga and the so-called christian president did not even say a word about it but was quick to condole the people of France over the killing of 12 people in the country. Is that how to protect christianity? The bible says the people rejoice when the righteous rule and for the fact that Nigerians have been crying, fathers mourning their sons and daughters and wives burying their husbands, shows we are being led by a wolf in shepherd’s clothing.
Is it in the interest of the church that corruption should become the most popular culture of government? During his six years as president, Nigeria has recorded her highest oil revenue earnings in her history, yet we have not seen any development. No electricity, no water, no housing, no roads, no jobs. Talk about the 2nd Niger bridge that he hasn’t been able to construct in six years, the East-West road that is the worse in the country, our refineries that still can’t function after millions of dollars have been spent on repairing them, the trillions they have stolen through the fuel subsidy scam, the missing 20billion dollars…the list of failed promises and mindless looting is endless. What exactly has he achieved with our oil money? The foreign reserve is half spent, the sovereign wealth fund is gone, the excess crude account has vanished, yet there is nothing to show for it. Is this how a christian president should rule to save christianity?
Many men of God have realised that this man is a wolf that came in the name of Christ but is not of His kingdom. They have been calling on all christians to vote him out on February 14. Rev Fr Mbaka has spoken, Pastor Kumuyi has added his voice. Pastors Sam Adeyemi, Tunde Bakare and Anthony Cardinal Okogie have also spoken in clear words. We cannot let ourselves be deceived any longer. Christ said many will come in His name and deceive the world but they are not of His kingdom. He told us that by their fruits we shall know the true ambassadors of His kingdom. Has this man shown any fruits that prove he is of God?
Is blood thirst a fruit of the kingdom? Is corruption and the neglect of poor girls, women, boys and men to perish in the hands of terrorists a fruit of God’s kingdom? He said stealing is not corruption. He condemned a former president for jailing a man that stole money which according to him was not enough to buy a peugeot car! That is why Stella Oduah bought two cars with 2million dollars and he has not jailed her. We all know there are people who are in jail this minute for stealing a fowl. He hasn’t told us how much a man must steal to qualify to be jailed. He protects thieves because he loves stealing. Remember what the bible says of the thief? He comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. He has stolen our money, killed our people and destroyed our common heritage. Remember the 17 graduates that were deceived with immigration jobs, killed and their destinies destroyed? Till today, no one has been punished for that atrocity and Abba Moro is still a minister in the christian president’s cabinet. He has destroyed our unity, spreading ethnic and religious hate to keep us fighting while he steals our resources and we MUST not let him continue with his reign of evil. If you go to Otueke where he comes from, there are people who can’t afford a meal in a day. The Niger-Delta region where he comes from is still full of hungry and impoverished people. He has been stealing in their name and leaving them in squalor. He is not a christian, if anything he is a shame to the church, he has even allowed the destruction of hundreds of churches in the North East because as Obasanjo revealed in his book, the christian president said the people of the North East ‘are my enemies, let them kill themselves.’
The church cannot be threatened by any leader and it cannot be protected by hypocrites who pretend to be christian leaders. An atmosphere of justice, peace and prosperity is what the church needs to survive and God can use anyone to provide it. Remember the story of the good Samaritan? A Jew was attacked by thieves, his brother passed by and refused to help him. His priest passed by and refused too and he was going to die bleeding by the road side. It was a Samaritan, a supposed enemy that saved him and Jesus said that Samaritan was his real neighbour. Jonathan refused to save the Church and God is set to send a Muslim to show us that he loves us all, regardless of our religion and we should judge people by their character and not their tribe, religion or colour. That is the lesson of the story of the good Samaritan. The man you think is your enemy is the man who may rather show you the truest love that you need to survive.
My beloved brethren, reject all the messages they are circulating to deceive you into voting a man whose claim to christianity is false. You do not even know what the man bows to when he retires to his bedroom at night. You can’t tell his true religion but his fruits show he is NOT a christian as he wants us to believe. Vote for change, vote for a man of truth and godly principles. Say no to satanism, reject the rule of occultists who feast on blood and entertain themselves with the cries of the masses. Vote the good Samaritan who will save you from the wounds of thieves.
Thank you, God bless you and God bless our dear country.
Your beloved in Christ,

Press Statement by General Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, on
the School Certificate Issue
Good Morning , Gentlemen of the Press.
I only consented to address you this morning because of the
genuine concern expressed by many supporters and other
well-meaning Nigerians that the issue be addressed.
Otherwise, I would have dismissed it for what it is—sheer
mischief and would not have considered it an issue worth the
nation’s while. I had assumed all along that all my records
were in the custody of the Military Secretary of the Nigerian
Army. Much to my surprise, we are now told that although a
record of the result is available, there are no copies of the
certificates in my personal file. This is why I formally
requested my old school the Provincial Secondary School,
Katsina [which is now known as Government College,
Katsina] to make available the school’s copy of the result of
the Cambridge/West African School Certificate. This will be
made available to the press the moment this is available.
However, before we obtain that, let me say for the record that
I attended Provincial Secondary School, Katsina. I graduated
in 1961 with many prominent Nigerians, including General
Shehu Yar’adua, former chief of staff at the Supreme
Headquarters, and Justice Umaru Abdullahi, a former
President of the Court of Appeal. We sat for the University of
Cambridge/WASC Examination together in 1961, the year we
graduated. My examination number was 8280002, and I
passed the examination in the Second Division. And although
the ruling party may want to wish this away, the issue in this
campaign cannot be my certificate which I obtained 53 years
ago. The issues are the scandalous level of unemployment of
millions of our young people, the state of insecurity, the
pervasive official corruption which has impoverished our
people and the lack of concern of the government for anything
other than the retention of power at all costs. Thank you very
General Muhammadu Buhari

Your single vote counts a lot
“There is awesome power in every single person created by God.
If you don’t think so; in 1645 one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England.
In 1776 one vote gave America the English language instead of German.
In1875 one vote changed France from a monarchy to republic.
And unfortunately in 1923 one vote gave Adolph Hitler control of Nazi Party in Germany.
Your vote is of great value, use it wisely for the good of our future.
Go out and cast your vote and make sure it counts.
Its your right and your power. Do, in exercising that right and vote rightly.

A few of the Primary school grammars our Phd President couldn’t get right.
President Jonathan’s Awkward Grammatical Miscues on the Campaign Trail
By Farooq A. Farooq Kperogi , Ph.D.
Before any smug philistine confronts me with the usual inane retort that grammar is the least of Nigeria’s worries now, let me state that this is a grammar column. On this page, which first appear in Sunday Trust, I talk only about grammar, language, and usage. Nothing else. That’s why the column is called “Politics of Grammar.” My “Notes from Atlanta” column in the Weekly Trust addresses broader, less restricted, and more variegated subject-matters. So spare me the trite, tired tripe about what I need to worry about—or about the fact that English isn’t native to Nigeria.
Paying attention to the grammar of the president of a country isn’t a trifling matter. It’s imperative in its own right. As I stated in my January 27, 2013 column titled “President Goodluck Jonathan’s Grammatical Boo-boos,” “the usage patterns of the elite of any country–especially of the president, who is the most important political and cultural figure in a country–tend to get naturalized and imitated by the general population over time.” That’s why presidents of countries are often trend-setters in the language commonly used in the countries they govern.
That’s certainly true of the United States where presidents routinely contribute to shaping the contours of the English language. I am reading an exciting little book titled Words from the White House: Words and Phrases Coined or Popularized by America’s Presidents, which I will review for this column in the coming weeks, that chronicles common words and phrases that are now central to the lexical and idiomatic rhythm of the English, but that were invented or made popular by American presidents either deliberately or initially in error. A few examples mentioned in the book are “normalcy,” “belittle,” “lengthy,” “military industrial complex,” “lunatic fringe,” “dark horse,” “frazzle,” “manifest destiny,” etc.
This election season, President Jonathan has been particularly hard on the English language. It’s like he’s on a rampage, on a linguistic murderous rage. Poor English! Well, see below some of the president’s grammatical slip-ups that stuck out like a sore thumb.
1. “Senior citizen.” Apparently, the president thinks “senior citizen” is synonymous with “(elder) statesman.” He is wrong. But, first, the context.
Smarting from recent vicious attacks on him by former President Obasanjo, President Jonathan couldn’t wait to hit back at his former benefactor. So, on January 7, 2014, when Northern Elders’ Council chairman Tanko Yakassai led members of his group to the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, President Jonathan seized the moment to strip Obasanjo of his “senior citizen” status and to demote him to a mere “motor park tout.”
“And your commitment to ensure we live in peace and harmony that is what citizens especially our senior citizens should do just like you have been doing,” President Jonathan told Yakassai. “Some people call themselves statesmen but they are not statesmen; they are just ordinary politicians. For you to be a statesman, it is not because you have occupied a big office before but the question is what are you bringing to bear?
“Some people are hiding under some cloaks, some big names and creating a lot of problems in this country, making provocative statements in this country—statements that will set this country ablaze and you tell me you are a senior citizen. You are not a senior citizen. You can never be. You are ordinary motor park tout because if you are a senior citizen you will act like one.”
People don’t become “senior citizens” through a presidential imprimatur—and they certainly don’t stop being “senior citizens” on account of a petulantly tempestuous presidential animadversion. “Senior citizen” is merely a euphemistic expression for an old person. Most dictionaries define a senior citizen as any person who is 65 years and older. Obasanjo is officially over 70 years old. That makes him a senior citizen. So when Jonathan said, “You are not a senior citizen. You can never be ,” he clearly had no clue what he was talking about. Senior citizenship isn’t an earned title; it’s invariably biological and chronological.
The term “senior citizen,” interestingly, first emerged in America in 1938 during campaigns for the country’s midterm elections which saw President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Democratic Party losing 72 seats in the House of Representatives and 7 seats in the Senate but still managing to maintain control of the Congress. “Senior citizens” was used euphemistically to refer to old Americans whose votes the Republican and Democratic parties courted aggressively. The term later crossed over to British English—and to other varieties of English. American English speakers now just say “senior(s)” instead of “citizen citizen(s),” although “senior citizen(s)” still appears in America’s informal and formal registers.
British English speakers also use the term “golden ager” as an alternative to “senior citizen.”
2. “Motor park tout.” The president also called Obasanjo a “motor park tout.” That is problematic, if excusable, phraseology. In Nigerian English “motor park touts” are people who earn a living by soliciting passengers for commercial transport drivers at “motor parks” (another uniquely Nigerian English expression, as I pointed out in my April 27, 2014 column titled “Q and A on Nigerian English Expressions and Other Usage Concerns”)
They are paid a token for every passenger they send to drivers, and have a reputation for being aggressive, crude, vulgar, untutored, and uncouth. So when Nigerians describe somebody as a “motor park tout” they usually mean such a person is tastelessly indecent or lacking refinement. That was the sense of the term President Goodluck Jonathan had in mind when he obliquely insulted former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a “motor park tout” for being openly critical of his administration.
This usage will puzzle many native English speakers. In Standard English, especially in Standard British English, a tout is understood as a person “who advertises for customers in an especially brazen way.” That sense appears consistent with Nigerian “motor park touts” who often pester potential passengers in an annoyingly aggressive manner. In British English a tout can also mean a person who buys things, usually tickets for an event, and resells them to people at a price several times higher than the original. American English speakers call such a person a “scalper.”
In Irish and Scottish English, a tout has a completely different meaning. It is used to refer to someone who betrays his group members by sharing their confidential information with the police or other authority. American English speakers also use tout, usually “le tout,” to refer to the social, political, and cultural elite of a city, as in “le tout Abuja admired him.” This sense of the term is derived from French where “le tout Paris,” which literally means “all of Paris,” is used to refer to the upper crust of the Parisian society.
It appears that when Nigerian English speakers call people “touts” they usually mean “thugs.”
3. “How much did Jim Nwobodo stole?” During a campaign stop in Enugu, the president was reported to have uttered the following cringe-worthy grammatical howlers: “How much did Jim Nwobodo stole? Money not up to the price of a Peugeot and Buhari regime send him to jail. Is that good enough?”
In English grammar when the base form of a verb (which is “steal” in President Jonathan’s quoted statement above) is preceded by an auxiliary verb (such as “did,” “might,” “should,” etc.) the base form of the verb is never inflected for tense. In other words, when “did” comes before a main verb in a sentence, the main verb always remains in the present tense.
Examples: “What did he say to you?” “Did he say anything to you?” “When I saw her last year, I didn’t like her.” “He did come to my house yesterday.” As you can see, the main verbs in the examples (“say,” “like,” and “come”) are not marked for past tense. So “how much did Jim Nwobodo stole?” should be “how much did Jim Nwobodo steal?” That’s a basic grammar rule that is taught in primary and secondary schools in Nigeria and the rest of the English-speaking world.
But while the president added an unnecessary past tense to a verb that was preceded by an auxiliary verb, he neglected to mark a main verb for past tense when he was supposed to. He said, “Buhari regime send him to jail.” That should properly be “[the] Buhari regime sent him to jail.” Or “the Buhari regime did send him to jail.”

O Buhari, where art thy enemies, accusers and traducers? Thy God has silenced and shamed them
Buhari has finally shamed all his enemies, accusers, transducers, even false prophets of doom. How? God did put them to shame.
Buhari allowed all his accusers to go on a merry-go-round to publicise him before he presented his authenticated certificate to shame them.
Where are d FFKs, the paid journalists on Channels Sunrise Daily,other paid journalists, politrickstars, government vuvuzelas, facebook&twitter warriors, bloggers, lawyers, entertainers etc that have been asking to see Buhari’s school cert? They have been shamed! The man has presented his authenticated school cert.
Even some poor wretched dancers wearing clothes that are not compatible with obvious colour riot and incompatible worn out canvass shoes were dancing&singing ” Boko boko harry eeee, boko boko harry e (a mock name for Buhari), show us your certificate, abi your certificate. Where are they now? Shamed I guess&gone into oblivion.
Where are the false prophets of doom who predicted APC will fight dirty after the presidential primaries and will fall apart as a result of that? They have been shamed too. Eating humble pies. Let me not mention their names but are people you know. What of the blogger that wrote that Buhari and Tinubu are like the agbero (motor park touts) at Soku in Abeokuta who obviously call passengers into vehicles they won’t follow? What happened in the end? Surely Buhari and tinubu are not the agberos at Soku because they not only called for passengers, but have boarded the bus and are even driving it. The bus was NEVER hijacked from them! O ma se o !
Buhari has shamed his accusers, transducers and enemies because God is with him. If God be for you, who shall be against you? Nobody !
God rules in the affairs of men !

Each time I watch this year’s AFCON, I’m saddened. Not just because Nigerian team is far better and would have played better football than all those over-rated Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Congo, Congo DR, Zambia et al, but because we are not pointing accusing fingers on the real Culprit (s) that caused us not to qualify:
Mr.Clueless Jonathan who debased himself to the level of re-appointing a sacked clueless coach like himself. Who says like feathers don’t flock together?

THE WORK OF A THINKER.
“If Buhari was pictured attending a mosque, and it was reported that the Imam said ‘he would open the gates to hell upon those who oppose Buhari’, and Buhari sat there and said nothing, what do you think many people would be saying today?
If Buhari was pictured going to different mosques and kneeling before Imams, as part of his campaign, what do we think the comments would be?
If Buhari was pictured going on pilgrimage to Mecca, surrounded by a retinue of fawning Imams, what would the response be from Nigerians?
If Buhari invited senior Imams from across the country to a meeting with him, to discuss the elections and his campaign strategy, what would the Nigerian people think?
GEJ has done all the above, and we are told he has a right to do so as a committed christian. Buhari has done none of the above yet he is called a religious fundamentalist with a plan to turn Nigeria into an Islamic nation.
Please examine the facts so we can honestly decide who is acting like the real religious fundamentalist? Who is using religious faith as a political ploy to get votes?
No pastor, Bishop, GO, Reverend Father, Imam etc etc is GOD. They do NOT have the right to tell you who to vote for. Go out there and support the candidate of your choice. Make your choice based upon who will give you and your children a better life and a better Nigeria.”- Bucky Hassan.
TRUTH IS PRICELESS. Vote out the bigots and shame their Prophets and Bishops,
God is the God of righteousness, HE is God of all flesh, HE hates corruption and despises those whose watch encourages corruption, usury and insecurity. God rules in the affairs of men.
We shall VOTE the CHANGE ticket and hell will not roll over.
God Bless Nigeria.

Buhari: The Change We Need
This is a message from the APC Presidential Candidate Gen. Buhari
“Fellow Nigerian, People accuse me of many things. But one thing they never accuse me of is corruption. They never accuse me of mediocrity, or of lying. People accuse me of many things. I have led this country and I have a record. We were not perfect, but we were effective; we solved problems, and we made Nigerians proud.
In our government, we fought corruption, we stabilised the Naira, and we shut down insurgencies. We shouldn’t forget so soon that there was the Maitatsine ravaging the North east and we dealt with it. We also overran the Chadian rebels.We rebuilt industries, Nigerians queued up and treated each other with respect; Nigerians took pride in our reputation for discipline. The world admired us. We were proud to be Nigerians.
However, because they can’t attack our record, they accuse me falsely of ethnic jingoism; they accuse me falsely of religious fundamentalism. Because they cannot attack our record, they accuse us falsely of calling for election violence – when we have only insisted on peace. Even as Head of State, we never imposed Shariah. All my running mates have been either Igbo or Yoruba and are always devout Christian of indisputable repute.
I have and will continue to condemn those who burn God’s places of worship, be they churches or mosques and wish God’s judgment upon them. As your President, their punishment won’t stop there, we will also ensure Boko Haram and other such elements, are found, are arrested and face the full wrath of the law as punishment for their crimes against our country.
My dear friends, this is very important to note: It doesn’t matter if you are Igbo,Yoruba, Ijaw, Hausa, Idoma, Efik, Ekwere, Urhobo, Igala and, no, it does not matter if you are Christian, Muslim,animist or atheist: we need a new direction under a new leadership. The task ahead will be challenging and daunting, but it is surmountable. This is what leadership is about.
My only desire is to prove to you that Nigeria can truly work. Allow me prove to you that in your lifetime, you can be proud of this country. Let me make you this promise today: We will protect your children. We will protect your wealth. We will make this country work again. This is why I am running for the office of the president of Nigeria. This is my promise.”
– Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR).
