Obasanjo attacks Jonathan again, accuses president of squandering oil savings

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has again launched a public attack on President Goodluck Jonathan, accusing him of squandering $25billion crude oil savings left behind by his administration.

Mr. Obasanjo made the allegation while hosting the South-West women leaders at his residence in Abeokuta Monday.
He said his administration left over $25 billion to his successor, Musa Yar’adua, who raised the sum to $35 billion.

Mr. Obasanjo said he also left $40billion in Nigeria’s foreign reserve account after paying the outstanding debt at the time.

He said former President Yar’adua also raised the reserves to $60billion.

Under President Jonathan, the reserves has plummeted to $40billion, Mr. Obasanjo said.

The new claims followed a series of public denunciation of Mr. Jonathan’s government by the former president.

In 2014, Mr. Obasanjo repeatedly lambasted the current government, accusing the president of promoting and tolerating corruption, and failing to provide security for Nigerians.

Mr. Obasanjo also released a book mid-December scolding the president as a self-centred politician who thinks less of the country and fraternises with corrupt and questionable characters.

In his comments on Monday, Mr. Obasanjo said he was not fighting the president, nor was Mr. Jonathan fighting him. He said he was more concerned about the interest of the country, and therefore cared less about criticisms.

“Our economy should not have been this bad. When I was leaving office about eight years ago, I left a very huge reserve after we had paid all our debts. Almost $25billion we kept in what they called excess crude. The excess from the budget we were saving as reserve for the rainy days. When we left in May 2007, the reserve was said to have been raised to $35billion,” he said.

“But today, that reserve has been depleted! Today, that reserve has been depleted. The reserve we left when we finished paying all our debts, our debts that was about 40billion dollars, that is including debt forgiveness, the remaining debt was not more than $3billion. Our reserve after we had paid off this debt was about $45billion. As I said, they continued till the end of 2007, I heard that the reserve increased to almost $67billion before the end of the year. Our reserve now, learnt is left with around only $30billion.

“That is why the Naira has been falling against the dollar. What would now happen, I learnt if you want to buy a dollar now, it’s about N192 or N195. What it means is this, what you have been buying at N150 to a dollar, now you need N192 or N195 to buy it. That is the real situation. Is there any remedy? There is, but it does not come overnight because it means we have to give up all the bad things we have been doing,” Mr. Obasanjo said.

“I know that God did not create Nigeria not to be rich or great. Is it that the people he created in Nigeria are not knowledgeable enough or not intelligent enough? Or is that they don’t know their rights? Our problems in Nigeria, let’s look at the foundation of our leadership. In the profession I know very well, the military, what we normally say is that there are no bad soldiers but bad officers. If you see a situation where the soldiers are not doing well, we need to examine the officers in charge. So it is in the family, the community, the town and the country,” he said.

He denied being against President Jonathan.

“I have no grudges against Jonathan and I think Jonathan equally has no grudges against me. I’m not quarrelling with Jonathan but all I know is that whatever is good for Nigeria, that I’m ready to die for,” he said.

“I emphasize that whatever is good for Nigeria, is what I’m ready to defend with my life. Whoever, I emphasize, whoever says he would not do anything good to Nigeria, even if he says he’s ready to go ‘konko below’, I’m ready to square it up with such a person. I say again, whoever that person may be, I want you to get that correctly. If this country is going to change for the better, it would start from the top and if it’s going to be otherwise, it would start from the top, too,” the former president stressed.

On the forthcoming election, Mr. Obasanjo said he’s not apprehensive as being speculated, just as he advised the electorates to vote for candidates with integrity and good records.

“I have no apprehension over this coming elections. I have no fears over the forthcoming elections. I have had some little experience about this country. I was a military head of state and I was also a civilian president, so what is left?’

“So, if I talk, I know what I’m saying. Whoever wants, should listen to me and whoever feels otherwise, may turn a deaf ear. But when I’m talking, I’m talking with my understanding and intellect. I’m drawing from my experience and from what I’ve learnt with others and from other countries and fellow eminent citizens of the world that I relate with. But leave all of that.

“Good governance comes from voting, from selection of leaders. It is now left to you to decide who you cast your vote for because if you throw away your votes and tomorrow you are saying good governance, once you throw away your votes you have lost out. That is one. Find out the track records of achievements of those you want to vote for. What have they achieved in the past and not what they have said’.

“Truly, the price of crude has fallen, but anyone who is wise enough should know that since we depend on just one resources, and since we have no control over its pricing, we should be planning for this type of situation and the way out of it. Our inability to have reserve has brought us into this economic quagmire,” he said.

Earlier in her speech, the Iyalode of Yorubaland, who led the women, noted that President Obasanjo has become a good repository of everything that makes for nationhood.

“You are the hand and eye in all the nooks and crannies of Nigeria. You are the voice everybody is waiting to hear his response on any topical issue in the public domain. We believe we are in the right place to discuss with you some knotty issues bleeding our hearts as we have seen you as a beacon of hope and lights for the nation”, Ms. Lawson told Obasanjo.

On state of the nation, the women said they were concerned about current happenings in the country, going by the current atmosphere of fear and uncertainty.

She said the nation is plagued by insecurity, economic downturn, poverty, corruption, among other challenges.

“The unabated nefarious activities of the insurgents which have placed us as a people on the throes of war is worrisome to us, because womenfolk is the most affected. Countless Nigerian women have lost their lives, husbands, children, relatives and sources of livelihood as a result of the despicable acts of killing and wanton destruction by the Boko Haram insurgents,” she said.

      You forgot to add one Okey…
      That’s who said Fr. Mbaka is a “false Prophet” because he predicted that Dr. Chris Ngige would be beaten by Dr. Dora Akunyili. Fact is, Fr. Mbaka made no such prediction. The closest Mbaka came was advising Dora NOT to even think of running for the Senate seat at all at all. Now who is the false prophet…yeye dey smell.

  • Ayelala

    On taking careofvthencountry’s finances,obj did very well. Where the government failed was application of those resources. That is why tinubu was right about the hoarding of money. Obj should have used some of the reserves to totally remake the electricity sector.

  • Johnson Omale

    Obasanjo means well for this country. He has advised the women and I have no doubt in my mind that they will take this advice seriously. They should not allow what happened in Ekiti to repeat itself. The 21bn oil money missing that was brought as individual donations should be accepted by the women because it’s their money but they must vote wisely for the future of their children. The 6 years of Jo-Nothing has proved him incapable of ruling this great Nation. Any vote for him this time would be a waste.

  • Kokori

    Where is the certiPicate? Where is the report of the attack on Buhari by Rev. Fani Kayode? …Thank God there is still place in hell for biased journalists.

      Reno Wendell Kokori Omokri, how now? How now Reno OmoKOKORI? Who resurrected you? What is the pay for this resurrection? Just curious.

      • GrantUK

        EndingNaija, get lost. Do you know you have never contributed anything to the polity? Are you sure you ever have an opinion you can claim as your own?. What have you said on this subject?

        • endingNaija

          It is sufficient that I am one of the CHIEF TORMENTORS of your candidate-the outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan. It is also sufficient that I TORMENT the online Aso Rock e-rats of the outgoing president like you! I enjoy doing this because the outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan is a FAILED PRESIDENCY. We cannot afford another four wasted years. Next?

        • Kamal Kamoru

          I just read his first write up above. It can’t be classified as a comment! My brother, he has no opinion of his own. The list of the people he’s ‘beefing’ keeps increasing daily! I find him amusing really. He calls himself a tormentor..however, from all indications he is the one being tormented! Mentions the same ever increasing names day and night. Probably in his sleep too!
          Lol! That guy na psycho!

          • endingNaija

            eh eh Reno Omokri na Kamal Kamoru sorry o. I no know say dis ting dey pain una like dis!!! Come February, you Aso Rock e-rat people will be out of job!

  • abc

    Eye opener to Dumbo joe supporter who based their support on ethnicity and religion but, not progress of Nigeria. No matter how you love Dumbo, I believe you will never do close to what Obj did to him. But here is he objectively ciritisizing him..

  • Adepitan

    What is the essence of Saving money when public goods are in a dilapidated condition. Bad roads, no fore investment to encourage partnership from foreign investors. Transport system was so poor. No good rails. No good roads. Dirty and stinky airports. Agricultural sector was in comatose. How do you explain it when you don’t invest in public goods to create the desire economy efficacy. It is so so bad that this man can be playing with very salient issues. I bet you nobody is asking how he managed the oil and gas industry as in doubles as the petroleum minister for years & the president…What a sorry state…

    • endingNaija

      Where are the public goods the outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan invested in? None. The outgoing president-King Goodluck Jonathan Nebu ONLY invested in STOMACH INFRASTRUCTURE a la his colleagues and soul mates Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state and Kashamu Buruji of Ogun state. STOMACH INFRASTRUCTURE is what the outgoing president invested in. And that is bad. This is why Nigerian voters are asking him-Goodluck Jonathan- to leave. And by the special grace of God he will leave thru our votes when we vote him out in February.

    • Umar Dendi

      Saving money is good because of precisely what is happening now! Oil prices have fallen and everything is going to hell, Next they will be imposing austerity measures on poor innocent people that had nothing to do with their theft! Had we saved all those billions do you really think you will be feeling a pinch? the same thing has been happening in Nija over and over again, one would think we have learned from these mistakes…

    • Ajayi Ifayemi

      I see your name is Adepitan. So you will understand when I say that once you fail to save, times will come when you can only tell stories of when you used to be affluent. Yorubas say when we eat our rabbits, we should always save the tail. This is so that your affluence will not become history or mere stories in your lifetime.

      • endingNaija

        Thanks Ajayi Ifayemi. But “Adepitan” is not really Yoruba. Why? He is one of the outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan’s e-rats. Adepitan’s e-rattling is coordinated by Reno Omokri-the New Media adviser to the outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan. So “Adepitan” cannot understand the depth of the Yoruba proverb you translated to English for “him” for “he” does not operate at that high cognitive level. What the Goodluck Jonathan Aso Rock e-rats do is to collect their pay , post any nonsense. The more they claim they post the higher the tools of Stomach Infrastructure given them. Anyway , thanks for the wisdom gleaned from the proverb.

        • Ajayi Ifayemi

          Oh, I see! I did not this is another of his pseudo names. Now I can understand his lack of understanding.

          • endingNaija

            “Adepitan” forget Reno Omokri as “Adepitan”. let us have more productive conversation. The Goodluck Jonathan Aso Rock e-rats coordinated by Reno Omokri are intellectually and cognitively brain dead.

    • wheingo

      Had it been that i’m the one who made that comment of yours, I would have been ashamed of my very self this is just illogical.

  • GrantUK

    OBJ does not understand micro economics, hence, he can not understand the achievement of GEJ government. The North hates GEJ because a Northerner (a moslem) was not made the Petroleum and Finance minister. If Buhari formed the Fed Govt, the first thing he would do, mark my words, was to make Fulanis Petroleum and Finance minister. The North feel cheated if they are not in-charge of NNPC, Petroleum, Finance, Defense and Agriculture ministries

    • endingNaija

      Okay I see. Hm Hm you meant MICRO ECONOMICS OF STOMACH INFRASTRUCTURE – outgoing President Jonathan’s invention. Yes, no sane person will accept that public savings which belong to all of us should be invested in STOMACH INFRASTRUCTURE the way outgoing president Jonathan has done. I think this is OBJ’s point!

      • GrantUK

        Both OBJ and yourself EndingNaija still do not know what it is. OBJ should comment on issues relating to military, albeit, security and theology which he is currently studying.

        • clairvoyance

          No wonder u are living on grant in the UK, if I understand better maybe the UK stands for un-quatum kolomentalism. If u say Obj who was both military and civilian head of state/president don’t know nothing about our economy. The sitting president that knows so much how come billions of dollars have been missing from our treasury without him knowing?

        • Bayo

          You don’t even know how to use “albeit” in a sentence.

    • praha12

      You people will never seize to amaze the public, Was David Tam west from the north during GMB regime to head the Petroleum ministry?

    • Umar Dendi

      This lies would not save you when the Federation goes to hell because of some one’s incompetence! From 40- something Billion dollars to $4 billion in 6 years! If not for yourself, for your children or children’s children!

    • lawiri

      @grantuk:disqus. Since the “installation” of southerners (as ministers/ heads) in the ministries/ departments you mentioned above by GEJ, have they taken a turn for better?

    • simonibekwe

      How come Tam David West was his former minister of petroleum when he was a head of state. Perhaps, there was no Hausa /Fulani? Gen Buhari is the next President

      • Otile

        It was a set up for poor old Tam. He went to jail for serving the Fulanis who were sucking the oil in his backyard. Obasanjo accounted for no one when he usurped the oil minister position.

        Fulani Yoruba will never allow anybody east of the Niger be oil minister. That’s why they want Madueke and Jonathan dead. Be wise, boy. We know what the clamor for buhari is all about.

    • wheingo

      You see how ignorant you are this is an issue of macroeconomics not “microeconomics” as you stated and you are saying that he does not understand, infactI advi you are the one who doesn’t understand this is a national issue so it should be macro while micro is attributed to individual’s and firadvise you to do some home work b4 commenting dude.

      • ModyHH

        Rubbish. Keep quite if you are not what to say. Obasanjo talked about the price of oil on the global market and that is no where macroeconomics. Nigerian will not progress as long as people like you depend on google for their education.

        • wheingo

          There you go the whole concept is about national economy at large, which result to the problem of inflation and unemployment and these are the major problems of macroeconomics, and mind you I don’t depend on Google I deal with books and I learnt this in the class room. It is with people like you that this country will not progress with your useless and baseless argument, go and have an insight of what economis is.

      • Onike24

We just can’t continue like this. We are one of the most intelligent, hardworking and blessed nation on earth. No nation succeed by luck but through pragmatic, diligent and efficient management of resources(both mineral and human) which is lacking in our present crop of leaders(looters). CHANGE BECKONS! God Bless Nigeria.

    President Obasanjo’s advice to Nigerians

    “Good governance comes from voting, from selection of leaders.

    It is now left to you to decide who you cast your vote for.

    Because if you throw away your votes and tomorrow you are saying good governance, once you throw away your votes you have lost out.

    That is one.

    Find out the track records of achievements of those you want to vote for.

    What have they achieved in the past and not what they have said’.

    • Bayo

      You forget to add; Jonathan inherited a regime oil is sold over $100 most of the time he’s in the office.

    • Warri Boy

      It shows how shallow your knowledge of Micro economics is. You do not even have the most rudimentary of Keynesian laws. You think economics is Yaba market sales & purchases ledger? Since the beginning of the earth where have you heard that one single country took $40b cash and paid off debt? Do your research or Google and get back to me immediately.

      OBJ destroyed Nigeria…imagine, after 54 yrs Nigeria cannot manufacture rockets or missile or an attack helicopter…and then you go and pay debt of $40b. Money that could be spent on weapons and industrial research. Just keep shut and stop getting some of us angry.

      • Gaskiya

        I think your brain is full of water instead of neurones. You can not defend the crimes of Jonathan in this forum or elsewhere. You can talk of all sorts of jargons including Microeconomics to deceive Nigerians about Jonathan’s fraud. But we are very glad because of the fact that Nigerians have woken up from repose and are ready to give Jonathan the deadly blow he deserves on the voting day.

        • Bovi

          answer his questions and respond to his scientific comment.

            “imagine, after 54 yrs Nigeria cannot manufacture rockets or missile or an attack helicopter…and then you go and pay debt of $40b. Money that could be spent on weapons and industrial research”

            It is better to use our money to service our foreign debt than to steal it for selfish aggrandisement. That is exactly what Jonathan did. He took much more than $100 billions in six years and donated it to himself and the hooligans around him, instead of spending the money for industrial research on rockets, missile, attack and helicopters.

      • tundemash

        so was the money now spent to manufacture rockets or missile or an attack helicopter?

      • Remi

        Which is better paying debt or buying armored vehicles or spending billions on wasteful travels, buying jets or pocketing billions of dollars?

    • Okiemute

      There is a basic difference here. Jonathan is spending his money- money generated from his Niger Delta. Which money did OBJ spend? Did he generate any funds? No one governs Nigeria again if that person is not from a region that produces the wealth. Period!

      • Gaskiya

        Hahahahahahahahahahahah!!!!! Check your brain.

    In Nigeria, only four sets of people can vote for Jonathan and PDP next month:

    (1) those who are blinded by corruption and therefore afraid of the unknown, should power change hands.

    (2) those who are intellectually blind.

    (3) those who are blinded by ethnicity.

    (4) those who are suffering from a combination of the above terminal sicknesses”

    Therefore, think of the implications of voting Jonathan and PDP to you, your children and grandchildren.

  • Kokori

    Boko haram Islamist terrorists attack, their Northern brothers in the army run away and refuse to fight. So where does loyalty lie? are we a country? PT will not do an Editorial on this attitude of Northern soldiers but they will be giving us Guhuru & Ekpai stories of people who are already on the departure lounge to he..

    • endingNaija

      Kokori na Reno Omokri how many ears do you have? Now listen to me. (i) It is a universal truth that the fish rots from the head. The out outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan is the head, the Commander in Thief. So? His head is rotten as we all can see because he has NO leadership qualities. So what do you expect from the body? (ii) It is a universal military ethics that there are no bad soldiers but bad officers. Outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan is the Commander in Thief-sorry Chief, so in accordance with universal military ethics, you must hold the officers LED BY the outgoing Commander in Chief responsible for what the body does. This is basic thinking. if you want to attack it, please do on the basis of reason and good thinking and NOT abuse. Deny the two propositions and let us see where that leads you. Deny that the fish does not rot from the head and let us see how thoughtful that is!!! Next?

    Ayo Fayose of Ekiti has been recently keeping low profile, his mouth has stop running like a tap water maybe he will talk soon.
    President Goodluck Jonathan and his cronies in People Destruction Party (PDP) has insulted the collective Intelligence of all Nigeria with lies. How many Presidential Jets are purchased in the last six years and how many do we have today that is not enough for a man that grew up without a shoe.

    • Funso

      Comfortkay, to be honest, I am sad that you are reminding us of Ayo Fayose. Fayose of all people? His name and life leave a foul odor in the mouth. Please save us by not mentioning that inglorious name again. We are still dealing with the name of the outgoing president -Goodluck Jonathan. To add another inglorious name again? Too much please . Do not mess our day up. I know you meant well by your post. But Leave the nonetity in Ekiti out of this. He is too low intellectually to be part of an intelligent conversation.

    Only in a cuckoo land like Nigeria, Yes cuckoo, cuckoo can the voice of an incestuous Ota baboon been heard–any one who wants to be relevant in Naija should attack Jonathan–a man who was sleeping with anything on skirt including his daughter in-law is now being celebrated in Naija–how we sank this low as a Continent baffles me–I am aghast that OBJ–who’s now the vuvuzela of APC is the same person who diverted over $16billion of oil resources meant for electrification project–imagine what such amount would have done to the oil producing states of SS&SE–Naija is 54years old–not 4years as them wazos wants us to believe–for 54years there was no light, roads, healthcare ati proper education reforms–Obama didn’t inherit a rotten system as Jonathan–he met them there–were this Ota ape ati other past born to rule leaders provided all these basic amenities we won’t be here today–to crucify GEJ–for being Ijaw–why not we go our separate ways–this way there won’t be any minority in power–what those of us from the SS&SE yearn for is secession ati freedom–not to be govern by shariarists of the night soil men of juju priest in APC–let my people go-period!

      Yesterday you would talk about unity when you are looking for votes for your outgoing presidential candidate-Goodluck Jonathan. Today when you lose ALL the argument you talk about “let us go our separate ways!!! Ole you are real OLE!

      • Oleku

        What unity? There’s nothing to unify us–except of course oil–our goal is resource control, freedom and take control of our borders–don’t tell me nonsense–we want out of naija-shikena

        • endingNaija

          Ole , I understand your dubious self. And that is what I am calling your attention to. No one is afraid of anything called resource control. With the end of oil globally, you need to be more humble. Anyway this is what your dubious self failed to see. yesterday when you were looking for votes for your candidate -Goodluck Jonathan from other parts of Nigeria , yu talked “unity”-no one belived you anyway because we are aware of the slippery and dubious nature of Jonathan people. But today, you unmask yourselves when you lost everything in the conversation-you said “let us go our different ways”. I am only pointing your hypocrisy to your dubious self OLE

          • Oleku

            I don’t know why Yorubas always develop premature ejaculations ati cardiac palpitations when ever the term secession is mentioned. If Yorubas don’t want freedom, liberty ati self-determination we Igbos certainly do. Understanding this simple fact is the beginning of wisdom in Nigeria today.

          • endingNaija

            Ole, why did you clamor for unity only yesterday when it seemed that your candidate had a chance of winning? Why did you stop the clamor today when it is clear that your candidate -Goodluck Jonathan-will lose the election in February?

          What exactly in the national confab addresses the “resource control, freedom and take control of our borders ????????????? The truth is Dumbo has wasted 6 years of your life, u are a drowning man looking for any straw to grasp.

          Crumb-catcher, stop sounding like a broken record about resource control; GEJ has paid that to your heroes Tompolo, Asari & Clark; if all you got from GEJ was a TAN stove, na your wahala be that, show that to your generations unborn as what you gained from 6 years of Dumbo’s presidency !

    To all those young men and women who ARE PAID to hide under false names and aliases to deliberately ‘roughen’ the waters to cause strife, dissent, division and hate amongst their fellow Nigerians, this is my prayer for you.

    May the division you cause in Nigeria also happen in your personal life
    May the Money you are paid never move your life forward.
    May you never meet people with conscience the way you also operate without conscience.

    Finally, you e-rats are failures, You are failures because of lack of job and opportunities you chose to work with those causing division in Nigeria. Those men in Government will die and leave billions for their children meanwhile they would have also left a dead country for you and your own children.

    Dear E-Rats, you are smart, you know online marketing and how to work the internet. Leave these Reno Omokri etc alone and go start your own business. Its not easy and you may fail, but you will have your dignity and be able to tell your own children that you were once tempted to work against Nigeria but you instead stood up for Nigeria.

    God will provide you e-rats with wisdom and provide opportunities for you so you all become a light to our country like Linda Ikeji, Iroko, Konga etc.

        @ Otile,

        Besides, when Yoruba Christians wake up from slumber they’ll realize
        they are surrounded by the most virulent and militant Muslims today.
        i pity Yoruba Christians because they are un-armed and defenceless,
        even though they are now in trouble.

        They assume that Boko Haram is just a Hausa/Fulani murder machine.
        They do not fully understand the concept of global jihad underway.

        Yoruba Christians do not connect the dots that since Yoruba Muslims
        are active cells in Al Qaeda, those cells are invariably allied to Boko Haram
        – whose stated aim is the ‘mass killings of all Christians’.

        • endingNaija

          You are still eating the dead “Yoruba Christian” dubious concept? Haba you must be brain dead. Nigeria has moved past that. Smell the CHANGE!

        • Otile

          They should have learned their lessons. At first the islamists were slaughtering Igbo in the North, when they left the Islamists started decimating themselves. When they are satisfied dealing with the Northerners the road will be clear for them to slaughter Yoruba Christians because those are easy prey. Time will tell.

    • Akpak

      Your master studied with lantern at Uniport and perhaps plagiarised the PHD thesis he is ashamed of making public.

      • Otile

        Imam may have been sent to US War College but he came home empty-handed. Show me his certificate. Did he learn anything, no.

        • Dr. Kay

          You are just behaving like a shark smelling blood and a hyena smelling a game kill miles away, you keep harping about certificate , army school certificates , primary school certificates , school leaving certificates etc etc that you want GMB to produce, abi no be so? I am wondering when you have become a certificate verifying guru or when did INEC outsource the screening for presidential aspirants to you, abi you don win that tender and we no hear? For starters , INEC put out this same man as an aspirant 3 times in the past , oh you say that was before , now they adhering to rules , well the same Jega was there the last time and nothing untoward was found against the candidature of GMB. So mr stop this your tired crusade, you are so scared of GMB, that you will clutch at any straw like a drowning man to save the sinking and non existent Dumbos fortunes. You will do anything to get GMB disqualified , abi no be so? Soooooory Jega and even Dumbo no get the stomach to do am so continue requesting the certificate and we will continue to ask Dumbo show us your last 6years achievements? Zilch, odo, zero, nada .hmmm says something about. A PhD holder who can’t express himself well in good English grammar and who I can bet my last dollar will duck and dive to debate an illiterate (emphasis yours) , because that illiterate will whip his arse so tey , NTA will pull the plug like they did to Pastor Bakare the other day. Enu le wa yeh eti yin a ya(na there you dey oh your ears go hear wen)

          • Otile

            Are you saying that 2 illiterates are going to have a funny debate? You know very well that one is illiterate the other is not. We are not asking too much, we are saying to Imam, Sir, show your first school leaving certificate. That’s not much. This is the lowest standard expected of a person aspiring to be elected by millions of educated people. Are you saying that certificates do not matter again?

            Many of our uncles narrated to us how they were rejected in the Nigerian military in the early sixties for reasons of lack of certificates, height, place of origin. Yet the Northern boys were not required to produce those qualifications.

            Jerry Boy Useni complained that he was more qualified than Abacha, yet the corrupt system passed him over and chose Abacha. Brig Ogundipe was more qualified than then LtCol Jack Gowon, yet the corrupt system chased the Brigadier to Ingila and instantly promoted Col Gowon to General.

            Must we continue to waive every decent qualification for your Hausa Fulani masters in the name of one united Najeriya? If an illiterate man east of the Niger presents himself as a presidential candidate wouldn’t you people arrest him? During the last election another illiterate Fulani man ran as a vice president, but mungo de Allah Dr Jonathan defeated the duo Imam, and the other illiterate man.

            Can you refute any of these facts, Dr Kay?

  • teebello

    My dear father, General Obasanjo,

    Your attitude is a reflection of the country. It is not certain which came first –
    your attitude seeping into the country’s psyche, or, the country accepting
    your irresponsible behaviour for so long.

    For you to accuse someone else of what you so obviously practised yourself
    tells of your narcissistic, megalomaniac personality. I don’t blame you for the
    many atrocities you have been able to get away with. Nigerians were your enablers
    every step of the way.

    You and your cronies that you mentioned in your letter to President Jonathan have left
    the country worse than you met it at your births in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Nigeria is not
    the creation of any of you, though you feel you own it and you are “Mr Nigeria”
    deciding whether the country stays together or not.

    This is the end of my communication with you for life.
    I pray Nigeria survives your continual intervention in its affairs.

    …………Iyabo Obasanjo

    Great Gen. Obasanjo, may you live longer than your forefathers and thank you for always saying the truth without fear. You’ve proved that a worthy person should not give way to fear. ” Eru ki i ba igbo, beeni ki i ba odo, eru ki i ba olo loju ata” (The forest knows no fear, and neither does the river know fear;the grindstone never shows fear in the face of pepper)

Obj never tarred a single road, never revived the rail, never revived our airports.Today, at least Otta to Abeokuta has been worked, Julius Berger is right now on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, just to mention two in his backyard that were inexplicably neglected under his most efficient watch. These roads used to be gullies of untimely deaths of innocent citizens under “his watch.” They were abandoned all through his 8 years. Obasanjo played God at he time. He thought he was coming for 3rd Term to use the money and work. Had he known his 3rd Term gambit would meet failure, he would not have left the infrastructure the way he met them.

    Federal Road Safety statistics indicate that accidents and deaths have reduced in Nigeria presently. Play your anti-Jonathan politics with whatever tool that attracts the undiscerning and simpleminded, for me, at least, I can appreciate the difference between huge-reserves-with-high-death-rate-at-home and less-reserves-with-reduced-death rate-at-home.

          —————————————————
          Nigeria
          The bilateral relations between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the People’s Republic of China have expanded on growing bilateral trade and strategic cooperation. China is considered to one of Nigeria’s closest allies and partners. China is also one of Nigeria’s important trading and export partners. According to a 2014 BBC World Service Poll, 85% of Nigerians view China’s influence positively, with only 10% expressing a negative view, making Nigeria the most pro-Chinese nation in the world. [1]

          Nigeria and the People’s Republic of China established formal diplomatic relations on February 10, 1971.[2][3] Relations between the two nations grew closer as a result of the international isolation and Western condemnation of Nigeria’s military regimes (1970s-1998). Nigeria has since become an important source of oil and petroleum for China’s rapidly growing economy and Nigeria is looking to China for help in achieving high economic growth; China has provided extensive economic, military and political support.[4][5] In 2004 and again in 2006, Chinese President Hu Jintao made state visits to Nigeria and addressed a joint session of the National Assembly of Nigeria. Both nations signed a memorandum of understanding on establishing a strategic partnership.[6] China has supported Nigeria’s bid for a seat in the U.N. Security Council.[2] As of February 2013, the Chinese Ambassador in Nigeria is Deng Boqing.[7]

          Strategic cooperation

          Reacting to the hesitation of the United States and other Western nations in providing military aid in fighting insurgents in the oil-rich Niger Delta to protect Nigeria’s oil resources, the Nigerian government has developed close military cooperation with China, which has supplied arms, equipment, training and technology to the Nigerian armed forces.[8] Both nations also signed a USD 311 million agreement to develop cooperation in communications and space programs;[9] China helped develop and launch the Nigerian communications satellite (NigComSat-1) by 2007 to expand cellular and internet networks in Central Africa.[9][10][11]

          Commerce

          Bilateral trade reached US$3 billion in 2006 – up from $384 million in 1998.[3][6] During Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit in 2006, China secured four oil drilling licenses and agreed to invest $4 billion in oil and infrastructure development projects in Nigeria,[5] and both nations agreed to a four-point plan to improve bilateral relations – a key component of which was to expand trade and investments in agriculture, telecommunications, energy and infrastructure development.[3] Furthermore, China agreed to buy a controlling stake in the Kaduna oil refinery that would produce 110,000 barrels per day (17,000 m3/d).[5] Nigeria also promised to give preference to Chinese oil firms for contracts for oil exploration in the Niger Delta and Chad Basin.[5] In 2006, China also agreed to grant a loan of $1 billion to Nigeria to help it upgrade and modernize its railway networks.[4] In 2005 Nigeria agreed to supply PetroChina with 30,000 barrels per day (4,800 m3/d) of oil for $800 million.[8] In 2006 the CNOOC purchased a share for $2.3 billion in an oil exploration block owned by a former defence minister. China has also pledged to invest $267 million to build the Lekki free trade zone near Lagos. However, the “flooding” of Nigerian markets with cheap Chinese goods has become a sensitive political issue, as – combined with the importation of second-hand European products – it has adversely affected domestic industries, especially in textiles, and led to closure of 65 textile mills and the laying-off of 150,000 textile workers over the course of a decade.[6] Nigerian militants have also threatened to attack Chinese workers and projects in the Niger Delta.[6] In 2010, trade between the two countries was worth US$7.8 billion.[12] In 2011 Nigeria was the 4th largest trading partner of China in Africa and in the first 8 months of 2012 it was the 3rd.[13]

          Chinese development finance to Nigeria

          From 2000 to 2011, there are approximately 40 Chinese official development finance projects identified in Nigeria through various media reports.[14] These projects range from a $2.5 billion loan for Nigerian rail, power, or telecommunications projects in 2008,[15] to an MoU for $1 billion construction of houses and water supply in Abuja in 2009,[16] and several rail networks.[17]
          __________________
          The railway you crow about is a continuing strategic partnership between Nigeria and China that started in 2004! Just like several of the other things that happened but were done badly like the power sector reforms. In any case, I dont’t post this for you since facts are not important to you. I do it for those who may be tempted to believe the hogwash you spew.

    For Nigeria to avoid self-destruction, it must quickly reject ignorant governance set by General Obasanjo
    who administered Nigeria for eleven (11) years but was none the wiser for it, only to preach platitudes as
    alibi for his infamous incompetence. What’s worse, Obasanjo preaches to others what he was too corrupt
    or ignorant to do himself. Obasanjo is better ignored as a most cancerous relic of Nigeria’s decadent past.

  • onenigerian2014

    The Yoruba’s are the problem of Nigeria, not the Hausa/Fulanis. Just because something isn’t a lie does not mean that it isn’t deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction. How can a people who just finished two term of eight years through their broada called Obasanjo be clamoring to rule Nigeria again through the back door.
    This man Obasanjo is not what he thinks he is, he is what he hides, some things just couldn’t be protectd from storms. Some things simply needed to be broken off……..Once old thing were broken off, amazingly beautiful thing could grow in their place. The likes of Obasanjo is bad for this country infact very bad, the kind of bad belle politic this Yoruba people plays is beyond comprehension.
    The Yoruba’s knows GMB will never last 6 month if and if he win the election 2015. GEJ, There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact, appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak. The petty man is eager to make boasts, yet desires that others should believe in him. He enthusiastically engages in deception, yet wants others to have affection for him. He conducts himself like an animal, yet wants others to think well of him.

Who were the vocal and Staunchest anti Obasanjo tribe during his tenure? Who were the most vocal anti cabal fighters when your Dumbo was awol under lady hippos skirt when Turai was let loose in Aso Rock running the country as if she was a fura de nunu seller ?

Now some goats are of the opinion that nigeria should split , I just laugh and say these guys don’t know anything , you will all suffer and die of hunger and poverty. Why you ask?

    @ General Obasanjo,

    Beware of Islamic Jihad!!! Use your head to think this advance warning through:-

    Sharia should be introduced in full across Nigeria. I will continue to show openly and inside me
    the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria. God willing, we will NOT
    stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country.

    It is a legal responsibility which God has given us, within the context of one Nigeria,
    to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly. What remains for Muslims
    in Nigeria is for them to re-double their efforts and educate Muslims on the need to promote
    the full implementation of Sharia law.”

    …….General Muhammadu Buhari

    (August 27, 2001)

    • Agenebode

      Goodluck Jonathan is not a terrible human being, but he is NOT a good leader.
      He is not the right leader for this nation. Not now, not in 2015 and beyond!
      You don’t have to be the most intelligent person to make a good leader
      but you must be smart and curious and steady and have a good sense of self.

      And you must surround yourself with intelligent people with an abundance of courage,
      and vision. Under Jonathan, our institutions are collapsing at a faster rate.

      The elite continue to steal, knowing there would be no penalties,
      but national honour for them; and the country continues to drift.
      Is this the kind of country you want to grow old in?

        Yes, Jonathan does not inspire the people that he knows what he’s doing.
        He shot himself in the foot by selecting arid jesters as advisers and aides.
        For that reason Jonathan deserves no pity at all. He brought himself down.
        He is in effect the most laughed at president Nigeria’s ever had since 1960.
        Jonathan will be talked about in history as a disgrace to himself and Nigeria.

    • Gbolahan Peters

      General Obasanjo is another naive Yoruba Christian who can’t see the wood for the trees.
      But when Yoruba Christians wake up from slumber, they will realize they are surrounded
      by the most virulent and militant Muslims today. I pity Yoruba Christians because they are
      un-armed and defenceless, even though they are in trouble.

      They assume that Boko Haram is just a Hausa/Fulani murder machine.
      They do not fully understand the concept of global jihad underway.

      Yoruba Christians do not connect the dots that since Yoruba Muslims are active cells
      in Al Qaeda, those cells are invariably allied to Boko Haram – whose stated aim is the
      mass killings of all Christians.

        I am a Christian and a minister of the gospel as well. You know what Buhari has my vote come Febraury 14. Stop spreading hatred. Jesus thought us to love and to unto others what we will want them to do to us. Moreno Muslims are children of God as well as they are created by him

      I will not even delve into the worthlessness/absurdity of your post, however i am offended by your name(misrata). I believe the name is in honour of the Misrata Militia of Libya. the same militia that gratuitously attempted to murder ALL people of color(blackman/woman) in misrata, due to the perceptions that most BLACKS supported & helped Gaddafi terrorise Libya. The fact that you would take the name of people that participated in the attempted genocide of your & my PEOPLE, indeed shows that you are about as ignorant as it gets. I am not surprised, I have come to expect this kind of brainless action from some Nigerians. If I had one wish, it would be for BLACK people to LOVE their brothers & sisters. Wetin now? Can it be that hard? Nobody else likes us(white, arab, asian, none!), you would think that we would love each other. Black Man, shine your eyes. Lastly: SAI MAI GASKIYA!!

  • DESTINY,

    all this busy body from OBJ, APC, and sponsored prophets of doom against president, Jonathan. to demystifies his chances of becoming the president of Nigeria next month will not succeed.i have an undeniable satisfaction that come next month even it will take Jonathan one vote to become the president of this country nothing will stop him.

      Why are you people so uncomfortable with the truth? The question you should be asking is, did OBJ really leave the amount he claims? Did Yar’Adua grow them to the amounts he says? And, finally, is it true that Jonathan squandered the money without even saving any of his own? Why are you guys so interested in OBJ keeping quiet if he is not lying?

    OBJ, it is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. OBJ are you a lonely man? If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love others. You will not be able to love others. If you have no compassion for yourself then you are not able of developing compassion for others. Let GEJ be, the creatures that inhabit this earth-be they human beings or animals-are here to contribute, each in its own particular way, to the beauty and prosperity of the world.

    • Wale

      What is your point, before now, you didn’t like Jonathan more than OBJ did.
      You didn’t wish Jonathan well more than OBJ wished for him years ago, when he helped made him governor, Vice president and his present position as president of Nigeria.
      OBJ is just here saying the truth about the man hardly knew before now.
      On top of that, deep inside him, he wished he hadn’t done that.

    For Nigeria to avoid self-destruction, it must reject ignorant governance
    set by General Obasanjo who administered Nigeria for eleven (11) years
    but was none the wiser for it, only to now preach platitudes as alibi for
    his infamous incompetence. What’s worse, Obasanjo preaches to others
    what he was too corrupt or ignorant to do himself. Obasanjo is better ignored
    as a most cancerous relic of Nigeria’s decadent past.

      Mr. Goodluck Jonathan goes to London often on ” private” visits. His woman Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke often goes to London too on “private” visits. The story in the public domain is that there is something unofficial and personal between Mr. Jonathan and Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke. As a member of the Jonathan Aso Rock Group, can you confirm this please?

        That is god news na

          Tell us more about “this thing” as a member of the Jonathan’s Aso Rock group. Is the personal “thing” between the two Jonathan/Diezani Alison Madueke why Nigerians may never be able to regain the $20b that got “lost” under Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke watch in NNPC? Just wondering.

            NO! I did not help, neither did it address my question. You obviously do not have the capacity to understand my question.

  • Olutola

    Chief Obasanjo caused it all. 1979 when you were leaving, you left us Shagari and you know the sad story that follows. 2007 when you were leaving you left us with Yar’Adua and see what it is now. A successful leader grooms a good successor but twice you have failed.

    • Tonnero

      I agree that his choice of people to succeed him has been very poor. He tended to prioritize integrity over leadership competence so you get a Shagari who, even though he did not steal, had a bunch of thieves running rings all over him. He also got a YarAdua who declared his assets raised the reserves but was quite sick and was also soft on his corrupt friends like James Ibori. Jonathan is in a separate class compared to these other two. Corruption and incompetence personified. However, that cannot excuse the successors.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        OBJ is a thief….as simple as that,there is no way he can explain his astronomical rise from 25000 naira to an estimated $3billion. Jonathan is a saint compared to OBJ who owns secret major shares in almost every oil company without investing a penny.

        • Dr. Kay

    Is there anything said by Chief Obasanjo about the state of our foreign reserve that is untruth? Ex president Jonathan failed together with his finance minister to save money for Nigeria during the recent oil boom that lasted 3&1/2 years,Nigeria fought full blown civil war without borrowing but under outgoing president Jonathan,$I billion was requested to be borrowed to finance military activities against a handful of rag tag militia,and this is when crude oil was selling at record prices,that was a sign that something was wrong with Nigeria’s finances because you don’t borrow to finance projects that will not pay off the loan,the world bank are experts in giving such advice to countries,why then did Mrs Okonjo Iweala approve that Nigeria should borrow to finance war against insurgency,how would the loan be paid back,who does this?

  • teebello

    My dear father, General Obasanjo,

    Your attitude is a reflection of the country. It is not certain which came first –
    your attitude seeping into the country’s psyche, or, the country accepting
    your irresponsible behaviour for so long.

    For you to accuse someone else of what you so obviously practised yourself
    tells of your narcissistic, megalomaniac personality. I don’t blame you for the
    many atrocities you have been able to get away with. Nigerians were your enablers
    every step of the way.

    You and your cronies that you mentioned in your letter to President Jonathan have left
    the country worse than you met it at your births in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Nigeria is not
    the creation of any of you, though you feel you own it and you are “Mr Nigeria” –
    deciding whether the country stays together or not.

    This is the end of my communication with you for life.
    I pray Nigeria survives your continual intervention in its affairs.

  • UNAFFECTED

    Records at the CBN show that reserves rose from $4.98 billion in May 1999, to $43.13 billion by the end of May 2007 and by the end of December 2007 the reserves stood at $51.33 billion. It came to $62.1 billion by September 2008 but during the 2008 global financial crisis reserves were extensively used to support the naira which led to its progressive depletion to $43.3 billion. Figures released by the presidency show that the reserve shrank to $32.3 billion after Jonathan became acting president even though by that time oil price had recovered. As at December 31, 2014, that figure stands at $34,4 billion. Now here is what is hard to reconcile: the audit report on oil and gas industry figures by the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) shows that Nigeria earned $143.5 billion from 2009 to 2011. The amount received in these three years (2009-2011) was more than half of the amount received from 1999 to 2008, which was put at $264 billion. Mind you, NEITI is mandated by law to promote transparency and accountability in the management of Nigeria’s oil, gas and mining revenues and it has its office in the presidency. It also shows that Excess Crude Account amounted to N8.53 Trillion in the year between 2007-2011. What happened to these monies?

    • Ekwekwe

      It took 2 days, if you were fortunate, to go from Lagos to Onitsha, when Mr Impeccable of Otta was in power. Today, it takes 3 to 4 hours. That’s one economic artery of this nation that was neglected, and hundreds of lives and businesses lost as a result. It took money to fix that. That’s just one of the thousands of things left undone so that some self-conceited, shameless man will come back to claim he is master and lord.

    • Otile

      Give us a break, man. President Jonathan is bugged down on 2 fronts, one vicious Boko Haram, the other APC party. These two wars have frittered away our reserves. Did Ogagun fight Boko Haram? He told us plainly that Boko Haram would fizzle away and he was not going to oppose them, and they left him alone.

      Is this not so?

      • Gaskiya

        It is a big shame that Otile can not comprehend facts and respond accordingly. You displaying desperate attempt to divert the argument on the table. I am very sure you are a deceptionist and liar. Please this intelligent findings or else keep your mouth shut.

        • Otile

          Which point is not true? Has Boko Haram war ended? Does APC demand of amnesty and other favors for Bokoharam not encourage the terrorists to fight harder and capture our expensive weapons? Did we not spend money acquiring those weapons? Has APC called on Bokoharam to return our weapon. Did Ogagun kill any Bokoharam fighter?

          You are the one to keep your mouth shut until Imam goes home to Daura.

          • Gaskiya

            Which of the Boko Haram are you talking about????? Is it the real rat-tag 3000 to 4000 member Boko Haram that is not enough for one Nigerian Battalion to demolish in three days? Or the political Boko Haram that work under the shadows killing so many innocent Nigerians?? If you are talking about the former, then the funds so far squandered to fight the real Boko Haram was too disproportionate to their fighting strength. BTW, over 90% of Nigerians have conviction that Jonathan led Government have played politics with the real Boko Haram issues, including people like you who do not love Nigeria and are ready to do anything as long as you will be paid.

      • UNAFFECTED

        How is he bogged down by a political party? You sound like you would have been happy for GEJ to continue for the next four years without another constitutionally mandated election. Its an election, walk into it boldly. On Boko Haram, the Jonathan government needs to give account of what it has spent on the war. I gave figures as I got them from the CBN, let the government tell us how the monies were spent. If you are honest to yourself, you will also be asking questions about these monies.

    • bikky

      God bless you for this information,please we need more to enlighten Otile and his tribalistic co-travellers.

It may be bad fifteen years ago when we just got new democratic government but by now there suppose to be an improvement,but why this retrogression.

    What we had along with Obasanjo’s foreign reserves: Nigeria earned more between May 1999 and 2007 than what it earned between October 1960 and April 1999. To keep the “massive foreign reserves” Airports were abandoned. Lagos-Ibadan road abandoned. Sagamu-Benin-Asaba road abandoned. Kaduna-zaria-Kano road abandoned. Birnin-Kotangora Road abandoned. Enugu-Onitsha Road abandoned. Enugu-Port Harcourt Road abandoned. Onitsha-Owerri Road abandoned. Benin City-Port Harcourt Road abandoned. Refineries abandoned. Universities abandoned. Teaching hospitals abandoned. Railway system abandoned. Unending wars with academic and non-academic staff members of universities because Mr Angel could not keep his promises. Meanwhile, Mr Angel had the reputation of Nigeria’s first nomadic president who could not sit down in Abuja for two weeks at a time to do his job. So much about keeping foreign reserves.

      So that today Goodluck Jonathan has to spend all that was saved on Stomach Infrastructure. Right?

    • bikky

      You can ask Annienih and Ogunlewe what they were able to achieve then,and do you know that the consequences of their failure is what make them distance themselves from Obasanjo till today because they failed him and His government,but Jonathan is romancing with these evil and wicked individuals today,you can see what we are talking about. Bro we need a change,please let vote right because posterity will judge us if we fail this time around to put round peg in round hole.

    THE BEGINNING IN RETROSPECT!
    The beginning of Million naira fraud can be traced to the ITT fraud in the 70s which Fela sang about. And the chief thieves in that very first million naira embezzlement were OBJ & MKO Abiola. Unfortunately, Nigerian seems to have an unquenchable penchant for celebrating thieves. Obasasanjo’s art of corruption is known to all, but in the spirit of protecting one’s ethnic thieving crooks, news media look the other way. Is this not the same OBJ that his own daughter described as most corrupt Nigerian? Is this not the same OBJ that Soyinka rubbished and referred to as he who watches to prey? The same OBJ who bribed corrupt Bola Ige with N50m cash before the old man was sent packing? The same OBJ whose aides were on one online TV confessing to crimes and assassinations under OBJ’s govt?

    …and PT pretends it does not know? The Devil neither gave prophesies nor sermons in the Bible nor Koran, why give to Nigeria? How come his insults directed at President Jona becomes news? Why are the criticisms of Buhari not reported on this site?
    But do these media houses with such jaundiced and overly biased disposition feel that the people of the Niger Delta will stand up to applaud whoever bcomes the next President after President Jonathan? Will the South (Niger Delta)? Accept him? Or will Nigeria become history? This is why we must thread with caution and respect each others’ rights. There is something very wrong with 13 Presidents from the North in 39 of 54 yrs (representing 78% occupancy of Presidency) and still killing to get another slot. If the West chose to be blind to reason, the South & East should react. Thank you!

    • bikky

      Willi,do we have to continue in that trends. Is that not the reason or reasons you voted for Jonathan in 2011? Can’t the first PhD holder president do something great that will show him as an exemplary leader,all your write-ups are was,was and were,can’t we have now and here,stop all these retrogressing and annoying histories and let Nigeria move forward. Let new things be done by our leaders and let start a new stories of success. VOTE WISELY SENTIMENT APART

      They killed yes, but sponsored by Jonathan.
      explain Ayo Oristejafor arms deal, don’t tell me they are meant for Nigeria army no! no! but for boko haram,
      explain the friendship between Ali Madu Sharif prime suspect of boko haram,
      explain the deal between Jonathan, Ali and Chad President( in return chad basin oil will be giving to chad at Nigeria expense for helping him cause in security so that he can continue to be the president)

      Jonahan and Ayo planned boko haram to look like Muslims are the one doing it, his main aim is to arrest IBB and order prominent northerners

  • Osebe

    OBJ should please spare us with unverifiable statements.These days,there’s a complete sync between OBJ’s utterances and those of Alhaji Lai Mohammed,the APC spokesperson.Does OBJ think that Nigerian’s have such a short memory as to forget how he nearly emptied the national treasury to the lawmakers in his desperate quest for an unconstitutional third term in office? Or is it not the same OBJ whose own daughter describes as the most corrupt man in the country?

    • glo

      That Obj is an atrocity, is not in question; that GEJ is a bastard child of atrocity is equally not in question. There is a special place in hell waiting for them.

  • Okey

    This man should deceive nobody with his trade mark “compulsive lies” (apologies to Prof. Soyinka). Obj never tarred a single road, never revived the rail, never revived our airports.Today, at least Otta to Abeokuta has been worked, Julius Berger is right now on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, just to mention two in his backyard that were inexplicably neglected under his most efficient watch. These roads used to be gullies of untimely deaths of innocent citizens under “his watch.” They were abandoned all through his 8 years. Obasanjo played God at he time. He thought he was coming for 3rd Term to use the money and work. Had he known his 3rd Term gambit would meet failure, he would not have left the infrastructure the way he met them.

    Federal Road Safety statistics indicate that accidents and deaths have reduced in Nigeria presently. Play your anti-Jonathan politics with whatever tool that attracts the undiscerning and simpleminded, for me, at least, I can appreciate the difference between huge-reserves-with-high-death-rate-at-home and less-reserves-with-reduced-death rate-at-home.

    Or, will Obj in good conscience say he was not aware when Governors in the new party he is “navigating” were piling pressure on the Federal Govt to share out all that was in the excess crude account, dubbing the excess crude account “illegal.” Had Okonjo-Iweala not put her foot on the ground against those rapacious governors, there would have been a zero balance in that account today. Arrowheads of “devour the access crude account now “are now Obasanjo fellow saints in APC. I think here that our leaders should have a living conscience.

    Obasanjo was equally quoted as saying there will be no problem once “the people adjudge the result as free and fair” Here, I don’t know whether the omniscient Obj was recalled 2003 when and where Buhari challenged him and proved in Court that there were only 1.3 Million voters registered in Ogun State INEC register, but that 3Million appeared to have vote Chief Obasanjo and saint Obj gladly accepted the excess (fraudulent) 1.7 Million votes to his credit . The Court of Appeal agreed with Gen. Buhari.

    I had thought that Obj will not regard everyone Nigerian as a new-born baby without a sense of history, even of the most recent ones.

    Thwaw funds are divided or shared between the state and federal government. Why do we always decided to demonize the federal? Even the much remaining, the governors are raising hell that it should be shared further. Most commenters here just tick off like an IED when they see something that they think they like to use to demonize one person or the other. The people you defend and those you demonize are there spending part of the money still. Smh.

    Baba OBJ may not be a perfect president as Otile and Willi are saying then because of a lot of challenges Nigeria was having,Nigera,just came out of Abacha led dictatorship and country unrest,before Baba can have his way it was almost six years and he needs to battle Atiku and other criminals that were in his cabinet,and he made sure he silence these people in order to make Yardua and Jonathann have a free hand to operate without any unnecessary interruption but Jonathan can not understand this as a president,the road is very smooth for him to succeed but he failed and later breed Bokoharam for himself to battle, he personally interrupted his seemingly smooth government and what is the offence of Old Obj in that,will you say because your daddy is old is no more your father,after all when he was more younger he has been a father to you. So let stop reversing the what has happened years back let focus on our expectations especially from these leaders we are having presently and let challenge them to give us what we need,they should not mortgage our future. Baba can only speak his mind but let Nigerians take the action by voting Wisely

  • Ette

    Obj started the saving for raining day, Yaradua added to it but GEJ did not add anything but consumed what was saved even when the price of oil was far higher than when OBJ and Yaradua were in power. Is this not confirming what father Mbaka said that anythng that Goodluck does will turn to badluck. This government has been a real disaster. May God blow them away with His fierce judgment.

    • Chuckdeni

      Yes o!!

    Yes Baba again where is the money? ask Jonathan.

    That is a shame in PDP, we need change In this country. We can’t allow some people to just loot this country and finish the assets we have, we are in a country of change and nothing short of change will happen In our country. Buhari all the way

  • Etomi

    Obasanjo’s mortal fear is to see Jonathan returned into office come February 14…
    So the predator-on-the-prowl has been committed to preying on the credulity and simplicity of the masses with bare figures, the goal of which is to destroy President Goodluck Jonathan…
    Of course this is a last ditch effort; but you know what, OBJ shall be disgraced!!!!
    Jonathan will win the next election, and OBJ shall swallow the hemlock!
    OBJ has reeled off bare figures—bare to the extent that they were not accompanied with analysis, explanations and logical inferences; bare to the extent that they’re mere claims of a satanic traducer in a destructive mode; bare to the extent that the government of the day has not obliged us its own figures and explanations in the natural justice spirit of “hear the other side” before you pass judgment….
    What is OBJ trying to suggest by his claims other than that the national savings were squandered, mismanaged or stolen…and so vote out Jonathan…
    In any case, I am not even inclined to believe the man, for as Soyinka had said, Obasanjo has made a career in infantile mendacity and deceit…
    Mischievous and un-statemanly OBJ has taken sides, and coupled with his do-or-die predilection, it would be a tall order for him to be guided by equity and good conscience…
    From the word ‘go’ GEJ had been enmeshed in a very expensive war against massively funded and atrocious terrorists Boko Haram; OBJ wasn’t faced with such a precipitous challenge…
    Permit me to advert your mind to what happened to the US economy during the Bush era, following the war she declared in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    The US’ debt profile shot up by double digits, as the country inevitably would run a deficit budget on account of the war..
    The deficit owed its being to the fact that on account of the war effort, the US national income was hardly sufficient to fund state expenditure that had spiked owing to the war….
    Having said that, the price of crude oil during the OBJ era was steadily high so much so that the country had more than a enough to grow its savings; for the country serially ran surplus budgets during the OBJ period…
    Under GEJ, however, not only did oil prices steadily plummet, the biggest buyer of Nigeria’s crude America suddenly ceased patronage; and the country inevitably had to run on deficits…
    The high cost of prosecuting the war against terror also contributed to the regime of deficits..
    Deficit budgets imply borrowing or resort to savings to run the country; this explains the shortfall in the nation’s savings…
    The question then is: given the dire scenario, is it charitable to simply blame the GEJ government for running deficit, or for its resort to the national savings to keep afloat, considering that the volatile nature of oil prices in the international market transcends his control, and also considering he didn’t invite the war being waged by heavily funded insurgents in the north…
    Besides, are savings not meant to be resorted to when income is low or has ceased?
    If government is a continuum, why must a former president chose to blackmail a successor only because circumstances beyond his control compelled him to seek recourse to the national savings, regardless of the government under which such savings were grown?
    Moreover, GEJ had been committed to building infrastructure across the country; OBJ did practically nothing in that regard, as during his regime, infrastructural decay from roads to a moribund aviation sector saw the ubiquity of plane crashes like no other time in the nation’s history…
    If indeed OBJ’s PDP ran a glorious government as Obasanjo would have us believe, why did he fail to rely on a free and fair election for the return of his party into office during the 2007 election?
    Rather, OBJ foisted on the country, the most rigged and worst election in human history!!!!
    But under GEJ, free and fair elections have retuned to the land….

  • This OBJ’s outburst about the squandering of $55billion confirm’s Sanusi was right afterall. For once Nigerians from all walks of life are united like under the Abiola election, against massive corruption and stealing of our national patrimony.This unity is motivated by mass hunger and poverty in the land.This should also teach the Hausa-Fulani cabal to realise that the era of Northern domination is over. Nigerians from the North, middlebelt, south-south, east and west desire an egalitarian society where equity, good governance and justice will prevail. This is the only way to tame mass poverty in the political north.
    To be fair, the level of corruption displayed by GEJ was started by Northern leaders who would rather steal and bank the nation’s resources in SWISS BANKS ABROAD.GEJ only won the cake by using Diezani to divert with both hands and legs.According to GEJ’s father, IBB says he is a SAINT when compared to his “SON”.

  • Omo Oodua

    OBJ is just trying to provoke GEJ into insulting and abusing him. But GEJ is wiser than him, hence he will continue to maintain his silence and patience. OBJ knows he is finished politically and anatomically (from the look of the cover pix of this story), and since he has nothing to loose (after being disowned b his wife, daughter and son) by shamelessly opening his stinking mouth to attack GEJ, he will continue to do so since he is near his grave. But What OBJ doesn’t know is that he is gathering great sympathy for GEJ, and come 2015, the sympathy will surely makes GEJ win the election.

    • Etomi

      Sure bro!!!!

    • Chuckdeni

      Is OBJ really finishd politically?

  • ojoh1

    Why are Pdp addicts so mischievous? The truth in this latest ouburtst by OBJ is provocted by the Women who came to him to complain about the rotten Situation prevailing in the Country. (listen to the address of the women) Obj only made his comments (which only comfirms what the women had already said) in reponse to their complaints. The question should be whether the women’s complaints and OBJ’s Response are true or false, not about OBj.

    • Chuckdeni

      What OBJ said 16 months ago, isnt it what has been discovered as the problem Nigeria is facing today?

    BREAKING NEWS: Nigerian corruption: I was a saint, says Babangida

    Even the evil genius has joined the conversation…He is far better than Mr. Jona (who doesn’t).

    Hear Babangida:

    “…if what I’m reading in the papers is currently what is happening, then I think we were angels. In a year I was making less than seven billion dollars in oil revenue, in the same period there are governments that are making 200 to 300 billion dollars. With seven billion dollars, I did the little I could achieve: with 200 billion there is still a lot to be achieved,” .

    “…I built Abuja. Today we have a brand new capital, we used that money. I gave you a third mainland bridge, Lagos; you cannot build it now (even with all) for all the money Nigeria is making.

    If Babangida feels that he is far better than Mr. Dumbo, then, I can wait for 39days to come to kick Jona and his hawks/ rogues out of government.
