    This line ….Another undisputed fact is that we’re now enjoying far more freedom of expression than under the previous government… says it all – i.e. this writer should not be taken seriously. Propaganda can only take you so far. The previous government can be blamed for a lot of things but not for muzzling the opposition or critics. At the minimum, it was under this new government that a member of the ruling party proposed a bill to regulate social media (on its own not a bad thing) but they specifically mentioned the papers they were targeting. Even with all the ‘nonsense’, Sahara Reporters wrote about GEJ, neither his regime nor the ruling party tried to muzzle them. Under this regime, the DSS has raided government houses of 2 states controlled by the opposition.

    Secondly, this writer says people complaining about the present economic circumstance is corruption fighting back cos it would take time to clear the mess of 16 years left by PDP. Yet, when the refinery started working just after Buhari took over or power increased, he didn’t write saying it should not be attributed to Buhari because Buhari hadn’t had time to do anything about the refinery. At that point, APC took the glory attributing it to Buhari’s body language. If you accept the good thing then, you also have to accept the bad instead of laying it at PDP’s feet.

      Yes, pure propaganda indeed. He must have been paid to write that.

  • Mama Kay

    Every objective observer knows that this government is really trying but that the old guard of corruption whose lifeline to public funds has been cut are fighting back.

    God willing, they shall be defeated permanently.

    No return to looting of public funds by a few at the expense of the majority.

      Every brainwashed observer thinks that this government is really trying.
      Every objective observer knows that this government is really clueless, hypocritical and tribalistic

      • Mama Kay

        The people who benefit from corruption will always wail because the doors to public funds have been locked. No more free money.

        My advice is get a job and start working like normal people do.

        Free money is gone forever.

        • chiemex

          Petrol is N160 in PH. PMB has introduced hardship to a once fast growing economy. Better go and beg Okonjo to give clues on how to come out of this downward spiral

          • Mama Kay

            What has that got to do with PMB? If your people sabotage the efforts of the government, who suffer?

            The truth of the matter is everyone needs to be patriotic so that things work for everyone not just the privileged few.

          • chiemex

            PMB is the petroleum minister. Tribalistic, clueless and hypocritical- now destroying the economy

      • The Trib3sman

        Why else do we call them Buharideens?

  • chiemex

    In the last government, the writer (Paul Okolo) was making brisk business buying and selling. He is looking for government money since PMB’s government has killed his trading outfit. He now has to sell lies and propaganda to get some money from APC. SHAME!

    It’s getting funnier… speechless!. Not even Lai Mohamed( the paid national propagandist/liar) or Garba Shehu( the paid mallam tongue cum forex dealer) could be so bold to tell all these this unfortunate man has tried so hard to put up. I wonder if you have a conscience. Omojuwa tried hard and probably still trying to be beta than those two on twitter, where his life depends, but to no avail in result. Maybe the reward wud come to him soon from his principal- El Rufai. But what method are u trying to put up here man? I hope ure smarter than that confused young man. You don’t even need to spew grammar to fathom the obvious, it’s getting worse that the ordinary people on the street singing Sai Baba are sorting for alternative songs.

    This 16yrs that has become u people’s alibi for failure is even pathetic. If all you create the 16yrs to be from ur hallucinations, Nigeria shud have collapsed by now. In fact APC wouldn’t have gotten the opportunity to dream of contesting, or even winning. But they did contested and won, ministers are promising to complete ongoing projects just has they’re commissioning others in numbers(rem no single among has been spent on any project so far here) they claim victory on BH but still claim no ammunitions were bought by their political enemy( they must be using stones)… the facts goes on and on. Only Time will vindicate the Just.

      You have an obvious challenge with rationalising statistics or by extension mathematics. It may however be due to the quality of education or intellectual discourse you’ve experienced. The writer says the country earned $xyz billions in 16 years. This is apart from money earned from taxes and other sources at states and federal level. In comparison development have only taken less than 20% of this amount leaving 80% to salaries and corruption into the pockets of privileged members of the ruling party. I understand your handicap not having any benchmark against which to measure your PDP’s performance, but no sensible person can repeatedly struggle to fetch water from a distance and pour into an evidently leaking container. The average 20% of federal budgets that went into capital projects are again wasted on poor quality jobs and services with little value addition to the economy. First, plug or close off the leaking container (stop corruption) before you talk about meaningful quality and sustainable development. Commissioning mushroom structures, overhead GP tanks, and market stalls is not where we should be at this stage. One of the most difficult tasks of the new government is to re-orientate supporters of the previous government who for the last 6 years have been accustomed to mediocrity in governance.

      Well said!!!!!
