    it is wise saying, that it is not how long, but how well. i wonder how these fashola mess up his career on electricity, upon crying of the masses on the epileptic powers supply, yet he keep on deaf ears, all in favor of private company, to rubbish the masses. believe it or not your days are numbered.

    • Spoken word

      You need to be knowledgeable before you write nonsense. You better go and talk to dumbo that messed up the privatisation of the GENCO’s and DISCO’s

  • evidence


    • Daniel

      Very apt description of the ‘ode’ called Fashola.

      • Spoken word

        When your hero was giving DISCO’s and GENCO’s to briefcase investors you siddon look. Myopic boy that looks at the wound but deliberately ignores the injury.

        • Daniel

          No doubts mistakes were made in the privatization process.

          Now,since government is a continuum, you have to educate me on how Mr Fash… is resolving it.

          It is easier to win elections than to govern.

          There is absolutely nothing this government can do and do well.

          Confusion everywhere!

          Very shameless and inept government.

          Please check your time, if you still hope on failure…

          • Spoken word

            You can tell him to reverse the privatization process

    • Spoken word

      look in the mirror.

  • Teflonjones

    Nigeria has little to no electricity to market. Fashola should be going to renewable energy/power generation seminars and forums.

  • Ohnigeria Godsavenigeria

    Fashola is a disaster as far as providing electricity to Nigerians is concerned. Fashola is following the inglorious pathway of bola ige who promised to give Nigerians uninterrupted power supply within 6months of his appointment only to turn out as the worst minister of power Nigeria ever had.
    A combination of these people have greatly destroyed our nation. Imagine that my area in Lagos now enjoy 30 mins of power every 3 days from 12 hours a day experience before fashola.
    Honestly change have come to Nigeria.

    • Spoken word

      If shows how myopic you are. if you are looking for a miracle worker go and join pastor adeboye’s church or any of the other Pentecostal churches.

  • Dán-gote Group Of Company

  • Daniel

    This is the height of incompetence.

    Fashola ,there is honour in resignation.

    • Spoken word

      If lazy bums like you will actually do something productive and not rely on 419, yahoo yahoo, MMM and baba ijebu. Nigeria will be a better place.

      • Daniel


        Tell Fahsola to give us light ooo.

        It is only in this wasteland every citizen is a government unto themselves.

        Name it: light, water,security,health,education,etc.

        There is nothing good but BAD in a CHANGE government.

        • Spoken word

          You better keep going to your church if you are looking for miracles.

          • Daniel

            I hear you. Power is now rocket science.

            Fraudulent government of jesters.

          • Spoken word

            obviously your church going has been fruitless

          • Daniel

            I am no slave to religion like you and others of your type.

            Yeye dey smell.

            They thought governance was ‘moi moi’.

          • Spoken word

            you think governance is for drunkards like before. Can you construct a building with no foundation?

          • Daniel

            Where is the foundation being constructed?

            Educate me on Buhari’s economic policy.

            Tell me why our budget now wears the gown “padded’.

            In which sane country under a sane leader is 200 million naira used to clear grass?

            Are you aware of the millions budget for spoons and plates in the 2017 budget?

            Is this what you call CHANGE?

            Learn to observe events.

            Or you must be a bootlicking proverbial ostrich!

  • Alpha

    To Fashola: vox populi, vox Dei.

  • emmanuel

    Running a State in Nigeria as a Governor is one of the easiest thing to do. Get miscreants and crook to raise money for you, even if they have to compromise motorist who do no wrong and slam them with heavy fines. Next plant some grasses, reconstruct some roads at N1 billion for 1 Kilometre againts what FG has been doing both PDP and APC at N1 billion for 10 Kilometre.
    Then get the media to sing performance song for you.
    That is unlike generating, transmission, distribution and contending with the APC Generator saboteurs.
    The worst Ministers Nigeria ever produced are in this government. The frog eyed thief who organised all manner of press conferences against the then PDP FG, is so ashamed to face the press today.
    We all know, every body at the EPL and La Liga viewing centres do better than the coaches, especially with a bottle of beer to the rescue, yet they cannot kick an orange.
    What is he going to tell them in West Africa, how to keep your people in darkness? Beware of the black snake from Nigeria, he will only worsen your situation with his suggestion.
    Please let him drink koko and comeback to supervise darkness here. As for Roads, the man is busy getting his cronies to patch federal roads in very terrible form like he did in Lagos, when little rain showers wore off the parchments.
    Fashola is a disease!
