      I bet those living in poverty will disagree

      • the truth

        poverty started under jonathan? detractors at work, what is the solution, u keep criticising you have never preferred a solution.

        • postman

          Poverty started long before Jonathan. This does not make it acceptable though. You must be comfortable to make such comments. People are dying of hunger and you call me a detractor. Shame on you.

          • postman

            I guess you are saying that since I do not have a solution then it is okay for a president not to have one. All the resources and appointments for what then?

        • Enemona

          Nothing started under Jonathan and he did nothing about nothing. Everything went worse for doing nothing about everything. Nothingness is a disgrace.

            This can only come from ONE OF THOSE sick APC brains–tell us about the revenue base of Nigeria————-beyond the rental economy that we operate–meaning ours is dependent on the crude oil that oozes out of his SS—–some of these statements u people are designed to deceive gullible Nigerians——rogues who cannot think of anything beyond the money they steal from the SS—name one state that does not depend on the SS for survival just one——————-in Nigeria–even LAGOS STATE WITH ALL THE PROJECTS THAT THE RESOURCES OF THE SS WERE USED TO ERECT CANNOT MANAGE HER REVENUE BASE

          • postman

            Can you honestly tell me that people are not suffering across the country? This includes your village. It should not be about sentiments or when our issues started. It is time for progress.. We as Nigerians get along overseas but cannot get along in Nigeria.

          • Enemona

            Crap! When brainless twats like you get cornered by reason, you resort to playing the regional/ethnic card and begin to spurt out crap from your big goblets.

            That oil of yours is the cause of Nigeria’s woes, I, as a person would be glad if the oil dries out so that we get back to our senses. I don’t know what you’re waiting for, since the oil is so precious to you and you’re extremely obsessed with it, why don’t you go seize it and pour it down your throat. I guess you already have a cure for ‘dutch disease’ (doubt you know what this is but grant yourself the luxury of googling it).

            I do not want a Nigeria driven by any ‘dumbing-down’ resources, I want a Nigeria driven by it’s citizens’ brainpower. It is this same ‘sweet crude’ that has created clueless and dumb beasts and rogues like you, your principal and the entire thieving Nigerian elite that have stifled hardworking and creative Nigerians. Many small African countries with no tangible resources are better organised, well-governed with better standard of living than your oil Nigeria. In this day and time, you still clutch tightly to the believe that oil can be the only source of prosperity for a nation of over 150M. Poof, go away! you belong in the stone age.

            Monkey———–the people of Saudi Arabia Kuwait Iraq among other gulf regions do not see it that way————- they have neever seen oil as a curse–its only in Nigeria–if animals like u believe oil is a curse———–why is it that the TRIPOD is refusing to give the SS full control of their oil wells——–are are nothing a bloody rogue——-the type we call——–(chop broke pot)———-all the 36 states of the federation depend on that same crude oil u call a curse—————–without which they cannot feed–pay salaries———————–and u are not grateful–when will u thank God for the little blessings—–if u cannot appreciate what he is doing for the rogues who steal my resources————-after the british granted u freedom–more than 54 yrs ago—now u blame the 4 yrs old government of jonathan for all yr cancer—

        • postman

          You seem to be close minded. I don’t care who the president is and this is not about when poverty started. It is about selfish people like you and a failing president. The president can come from anywhere.. I really don’t care.. we just need to see progress and know that there are people who actually feel pain when they see the level of poverty and suffering in Nigeria.

          • redeem

            u will care——one day—–that is why u do not yearn for us to separate—cause of yr awooooooooooof loving regional leaders————————–yours is to have the same fulani governments that destroyed Nigeria and hanged kensarowiwa—-murdered abiola ati his wife kudirat———repeat————–the same rubbish——————-now obj and his inlaw borishade are with atiku———————————-in APC————————–

    This is the end of President Jonathan’s National Conference. It was an impulsive step anyway,

    It wasn’t thought through at outset; and no law even backed it, as its terms were wholly abstract.
    This is not what a National Conference should ever be. Jonathan has just messed up a good idea.
    Asked for his take in the year 2010 by journalists, Jonathan said a National Conference is useless.

    But when he woke up to smell the coffee in 2013, he it was who’s now incompetently made it useless.
    Impulsively, he dumps the Conference Report on the laps of Mohammed Adoke who hasn’t got a clue on it.
    And now the swan song may begin of a National Conference of 12 billion Naira going into the private pockets
    of rabble-rousers for doing nothing sensible – but quite the opposite – by almost doubling Nigeria’s recurrent

    national expenditure by suggesting 18 additional states plus a slew of imprudent expansion of government(s).

    President Ebele Jonathan is truly a bad luck to Nigeria with the imprudent ways he misappropriates our national financial resources on his hidden personal greed-agenda.Very wasteful without proper prior good planning.
    President Jonathan jumps on the national conference bandwagon without thorough thinking and well thought out planning.
    Committee upon committee with unconscionable waste of our scarce public funds?

    We shouted loud that Mr Jonathan should inaugurate a sovereign-national-conference so as to guarantee that final report of such sovereign national conference would not be subject to the approval of national assembly and 36-states-house of assemblies.But with his PHD in zoology,he refuses to reason and act intelligently and inaugurated mere national conference
    with each delegate gotten paid N4m naira per month for four months.

    At the end now set up another usual committee to work out a magic-wand as to how to evade national assembly and states-house of assemblies approval before the report could be implemented?Biggest joke of our time.President Ebele Jonathan is a complete waste space in Nigeria presidency.

    • the truth

      When u talk without reasoning it is baffling.have you opened the constitution before.what does the constitution say about conferences and the modu operandi.the president is following the constitution of the country in requesting approval from the Senate and houses of assembly as stated in the constitution and you are complaining.the moment he acts on his own and implements it you would call hima dictator.u talk for the sake of talking.please go read the constitution on the powers of the president

    Committee to steal money

          • Olu Ade

            Education to you means accepting what Dumbo says hook and sinker! Just change you name to “the false” Which part of Nigerian constitution stipulates that Mr. President should always govern by Committees? Dumbo is not the first president, others have govern Nigeria under Nigerian constitution with similar basic tenants.

            If he uses 40years to prepare for his madness, how many years will he live the actually psychotic madness lifestyle? That’s why he kept asking for more time, Mr. Snails speed! All he needs to do is to let the technocrat in the office of the Secretary to the Government do their work, and then send portions of the report to relevant bodies like the Council of states, federal executive cabinet and the National Assembly for consultations or approval.

            With people like you, I am not surprised that Nigerian politicians continue to rule and steal instead of serving the people. People like you can handover your life to Dumbo and then go to sleep. Patriotic Nigerians will remain vigilant.

            Anyway, I know you are a member of the Dumbo committee to defend him online.

    Truly vintage Nigerian – putting the cart before the horse. So the Confab was organised without knowing the strategies for implementation?
