​​I​’​ll surely ​defeat Buhari​ – Jonathan declares

FILE PHOTO: President Jonathan at PDP Rally in Ibadan

President Goodluck Jonathan remains confident he will win a second term despite the growing popularity of his main challenger, Muhammadu Buhari.

With elections less than two weeks away, Mr. Jonathan told the BBC in an interview that he has nothing to worry about, as his ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, remains the strongest party in Nigeria despite Mr. Buhari’s All Progressives Congress, APC’s widespread support.

“I will surely win it… My party is still the strongest party,” the president said.

The interview was published Friday, a day after the chairman of PDP, Adamu Mu’azu, admitted the surging popularity of the opposition meant his party cannot secure a landslide in the presidential, parliamentary and governorship elections.

Mr. Mu’azu however expressed confidence that the PDP will “perform creditably”.

“Our major concern in the Peoples Democratic Party is not to allow the country to be hijacked by desperadoes masquerading as purveyors of good governance, who promise heaven and earth to the people without any intention of fulfilling their election promises in the name of change,” the PDP chairman said in a statement Thursday.

“While I do not see a landslide victory coming, I am convinced that our party will perform creditably in the Southwest and the North of Nigeria and elsewhere in all the elections this year because the evidence is clear that despite our travails at the beginning, we have done very well over the past fifteen years of our nascent democracy since 1999 to record victory. Those who disbelieve our resilience will be surprised for victory is ours.”

In a wide-ranging interview with the BBC, Mr. Jonathan repeated his comments that he believed the abducted Chibok school girls are alive since the jihadist sect, Boko Haram, has not shown they had been killed.

“We have not seen dead girls that is the good news. I believe they are still alive, I believe we will get them,” he said.

The president said the Nigerian military will hopefully recover the remaining territories under Boko Haram control in less than a month.

He said the group has grown weaker with the government’s renewed drive that has seen the military reclaim several towns held by the terror group.

“I’m very hopeful that it will not take us more than a month to recover the old territories that hitherto have been in [Boko Haram’s] hands,” Mr. Jonathan said.

“We never expected that [Boko Haram] will build up that kind of capacity. We under-rated their external influence. Since after the civil war we’ve not fought any war, we don’t manufacture weapons, so we had to look for help to re-equip our army and the air force.”

On violence during his presidency, Mr. Jonathan said he took responsibility for “whatever goes wrong”.

“Whatever goes right, I take the glory,” he said. “Whenever I hear that somebody dies in Nigeria… I feel pain, because they are all Nigerians.”

    Ride on Mr President your victory is assured for we who are with you are so much more than those who are against you

    • Funso

  • CONSCIENCE

    What is your rigging plan!

  • Wähala

    The only way $Dumbo can win the elections is if FFK is allowed to announce the winner…

    • Onike24

      Don’t be too sure! I have no faith in my people, in a sane country it would be a formality, but Jonathan could very easily win, a little complacency is all he needs.

      • Wähala

        @Onike24…
        The complacency if any cannot be assumed to be by APC supporters only, if will cut across board. My view is that if any sort of elections are held the PDP have no prayer at the polls. The only way is for the RECs to announce the false results and the military used to consolidate such results. Otherwise, the election is a forgone conclusion… Methinks!

        • Onike24

          Bros, I feel the very survival of Nigeria is at stake.

        • Onike24

          I am afraid credible elections rely on things that have become inimical to us.

  • Victor Gee

    It is victory all the way

  • Victor Gee

    Even Buhari knows that it is over

    • Funso

      OMO ALE

  • Babawale Akinola

    Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, how will you defeat Buhari? By bribing wlth your stockpiled oil stolen money-( stolen and stock piled thru all sorts of third parties?). Oh we will collect the stolen money, we will not vote for you.

    • GEJisaDISASTER

      GEJ is talking confidently of winning because the armed forces, the police, SSS, his ministers and some wild dogs called PDP members who constitutes a powerful rigging machine has assured him. But he will be heading an illegitimate government that is bound to crumble

  • Olutola

    100 of you cannot defeat Buhari. If you announce nonsense you will smell yourself. We are ready absolutely NO to rigging.

  • Eze1

    You will be defeated

  • Okonkwo

    Jonathan,you’re history.we have already made that mistake and we are ready to move on ok.

  • djay

    Jona dollar your tenure shall end 29 May 2015

  • Debekeme

    Jonathan has a point. Elections are not won on Facebook or on Premium Times.

    PDP has a huge amount of money and control all the agencies of Government.

    How do you say ‘no’ to a man who can give you an oil block or 10 Million USD on the spot?

    The only way Jonathan can be defeated is if a group of very influential people suddenly speak up against his candidature.

    Unless theres a last minute game plan by the APC, there is little hope they can defeat Jonathan.

    Unless very key people who can influence Nigerians suddenly abandon Jonathan.

    GEJ will win. Im sad to say but thats the truth.

    • olutade

      Yes brother. The people will vote Buhari but GEJ would win the election.

      • Debekeme

        PDP will never give up power after elections unless:
        1/. Buhari wins with a HUGE margin that its becomes incontestable to challenge the outcome of the elections, or,
        2/ Serious Power brokers in Nigeria speak out before the elections and tell Jonathan that his time is up.

        Right now, we are not sure of either happening. If Buhari wins by a small margin PDP will ‘scatter’ everything and say its too close to call and maybe look for a run off.

        if the power brokers are behind Jonathan to the end, then it doesnt matter which way the elections go. PDP will just come out and do what they want

        There will be riots and social unrest for a while by the APC, but after a while, all will die down and go to normal.

        The PDP only cares about one thing; Ensuring Buhari doesnt get to Aso Rock.

        • olutade

          Thankyou my brother. The power brokers are behind Jonathan and those who were not before have been bought over recently.

          • Faruk Al-amin

            Its just a few weeks, lets see how this so called Power brokers can forcefully declare Jonathan winner

        • ConScience

          You are one of the only few people that see the writing on the wall. As much as I profer and pray for change I do not see this desperate Nigerians in the current FG handing over to a credible Buhari WHEN he wins. As you stated unless it is a landslide which it wont be then PDP will start chaos and confusion and rather hand over to an Interim Govt than to Buhari’s legitimate govt. I pray I am so wrong but I hardly am when it comes to such things.

    • Abdul

      Dont worry, you will soon know whether election are won facebook and premium times, less than 5% of Buhari’s supporters are on these medium.

      Swallow it, JONATHAN CAN NEVER WIN THE COMING ELECTION. NEVER!!!

  • MilitaryPolice01

    Your excellency that ship has since sailed. Buhari emerges within the next 10 days,the dilemma we face though is how he intends to run a govt with rogues like Timipre Sylva,Amaechi, Saraki, Tinubu etc and all thieves who were one time or the other known to have pillaged their states.

  • huuuum

    He is planning on rigging it and woe betides anyone that endoreses rigging. Its going down on March 28, for ppl to defend their votes.

    • Philip Musa

      like it or not, he is and will continue to be your president; and you shall continue to wallow in abject poverty all your life!

    • Abdul

      Where will he do the rigging? in the north? we are waiting for any man born of a woman to temper with votes in the north and see fire. Them no even born any soldier or police well to try any rigging in the north. NW,NE and NC will go for Buhari, Jonathan will be lucky to get even 5% as things stand now.

      • Faruk Al-amin

        Tell them my brother, the pdp seem to think we dey fear corrupt police officers, we go vote, we shall defend our vote, and we shall be there when the votes will be counted.
        Sai Buhari/osinbajo

  • Layo

    Only in your dreams mr. Jonadaft. We will sit at the polling booths until our vote is counted. PDP desperation sucks.

    • Philip Musa

      …and your vote shall go to GEJ

  • basil edoma

    On point Mr president… The newly formed cabal of thieves and liars in the Apc can dream all they want but the truth remains that on ground the vehicles that drives our democracy which you implemented this past 5 years will surely absolve you. All their(Apc) plans will surely backfire on them… And as for all you despicable disciples of buhari and the apc, well go on and do what you do best… post your misleading threads but know that elections are not won online and come March 28th GEJ will and still be the president of this country and if the results does not make you happy you should go and hug the transformer…

  • Abdul

    This man is still dreaming, somebody should wake him up please.

    • Tunsj

      He is on his way back to Etuoke and he knows it. What did you expect him to say?

  • Lorgic

    Ha ha ha!! Oga presido dream on.
    If shekau has killed the chibok girls he will come and show the pictures to Mr. Goodluck jonathan. And bcos shekau hasn’t shown the pictures of dead girls to goodluck Jonathan, therefore the girls are still alive. No wonder he is called ‘clueless’.

    • GEJisaDISASTER

      Gbagbo and Abacha are struggling for him in earnest like never before

  • tundemash

    Yeah right Dumbo …. if Yoruba Obas, OPC, MASSOB, Edwin Clark & Ayo Kanye yWest Orisejafor will be the only voters sha !

    • Philip Musa

      for it written, your great great grand parents SHALL vote for GEJ on that day! You can never forestall the judgment.

      • tundemash

      Dr. Dreamer.

  • richkid

    Haha its a pity, how people chose to deceive themselves. Satisfying themselves with lies in there own favour. Sorry we know Apc and premium times. I vote they said voting didn’t load well for all this while. Now look at there fabricated result! This what they intend doing with the card reader! But it’s a pity how you will all fail. GEJ has won like yest

  • richkid

    Tell me in all over the world which country is winning there own war against terrorism! Even people that manufacture weapons loose there’s. But look at the exploits of JONA. GEJ your a warrior and you will continue till 2019!

  • warry

    If it is based on facts and not sentiments, there is hope. I believe most Nigerians can see that indeed, if it service delivery no president has done better. Anybody can do a sectoral analysis and comparism and the main challenger’s selling point is all media hype.

    • Debekeme

      Brother, you have a good argument and you also sound logical. Can you please explain to me in clear and objective terms why Jonathan is so disliked despite the achievements you ascribe to him? Its it weird that a man who is said to have done so well is so reviled by many? There must be a logical reason. People who perform well are usually praised and commended. Why is Jonathan as exception?

      • Bidemi Lukman

        Because Jona achievements could only be said and read on pappers. APC made the achievements invisible.

      • Mr white Ahmed

        Even when Jesus Christ was on earth, he wasn’t luvd by everyone.

      • Cherechi

        Jona is so disliked because he has stolen six years providential oil boom when oil sold for more than $120 per barrel and left Nigerians with idiotic fictions he calls achievements. The man and his childish stunts are quite disgusting

      • Icheku

        Yes, he has achieved quite a lot and here are some of them;

        From partial light when he came to total darkness as he is departing even as over $20 billion were spent on the power sector

        He has created millions of non existent jobs yet over one million turned out for scam immigration jobs, each extorted N1,000 each and twenty trampled to death.

        He has brought back and rained locomotive trains that take four hours to ply Iddo To Otta

        He has succeeded in transforming Naira to worthless paper

        He has cleaned out the $56 billion OBJ said he was building as foreign reserve for us

        He shared out N3 trillion as phantom subsidy to those now organizing Thieves of All Nations (TAN)

        He with his girlfriend Diezanni stole $50 billion oil money according to his former CBN boss

        He shared out N8 billion to his cronies as kerosene subsidy

        He stole N30 trillion in conjunction with Okonjo Iweala according to Soludo

        He pays billions if dollars to Asari Dokubo, Tompolo, Bayloaf, Edwin Clark and other criminals from the South south

        he supervises the stealing of over 400,000 barrels of oil every day

        He uses con pastor Oritsejafor to launder stollen dollars all over the world

        He patronizes criminals with multi billion Naira contracts so as to win election

        He shares out dollars (ome na dollar) as election bribe money

        You want me to continue listing Jonadumb’s earth shaking achievements?

        But we have had enough of this huge burden who has finished off the country with his wonderful achievements

  • evi

    Buhari growing popularity? Where is the growing popularity .he has refused to show his original credentials, he refused to debate. He refused to apologise to journalist and victims and families of victims of his terror reign as head of state,he has refused to explain why he supports boko haram and their sharia cause, he has refused to respond to allegation of theft hanging on his head; 53 suitcases of hard currencies, 2.8 bn when he was petroleum minister and 25 bn when he was PTF chairman. The wife has refused to respond to NUC accusation that her first degree cert is a forgery. Premium times, live up to the ethics of journalism .

  • Bidemi Lukman

    I think Jona is being blinded by dollars he has shared couple with the fact that he planned to use police for the rigging and not Army like he did in Ekiti.

    Police IG said today that voters should not wait at the polling boot after voting to withness the counting. Only INEC official, Policemen and each of the party agents.

    With this, rigging is imminent.

    This stup1d poll you APC folks of PT are running (just because you feel you’ve succeeded in conditioning the minds of your readers by your shameless propaganda) is a no-brainer….
    I will or can never participate in such rubbish, because it would tell nothing…
    Israel recently went to the polls, and prior to the election, silly pollsters gave the vote to Herzog not Netanyahu…
    Obama is said to have thrown in so much US’s tax-payers’ money into Herzog’s campaign just to unseat Netanyahu in a similar gambit now playing out in the contest between GEJ and Buhari…
    And what eventually happened?
    Netanyahu won the election to the chagrin of those who decidedly gave Netanyahu no chance in that election…
    It is written that GEJ would win the March 28 presidential election, and heaven would fall on Buhari’s camp with a bang!

      Useless PDP erats are mourning and wishing they can stop what is becoming obvious with their wolf crying. You people have been looting billions for six years in the name of internet media and when your master Reno Omokiri organized an opinion poll, Buhari trashed Jonathan silly. He did for the second time yet Buhari humiliated Jonathan in a so called twitter poll anchored from Aso Rock. These PDPigs paid AIT N10 Billion to manufacture lies and smear video on Buhari. After airing the devilish video for three days and feeling satisfied that it had done a good smear job for its smear efforts, it put up an online poll and by the third day, Buhari was trashing Jknathan silly by 79 per cent to 20 and an embarrassed and shameless AIT pulled down the poll. The bastard attack dog Doyin Okupe went on an abusing spree against Buhari right in Aso Rock where he was supposed to address a press conference and he was nearly lynched by irate press men who could not stand his dirty habits. You PDPigs are frantically running away from reality but it is fast catching on you people that one can’t harvest mangoes from orange trees. By March 28, you and your thieving masters will meet reality face to face. It is all over for Jonathan and PDP.

    Regarding “not seeing dead girls”, how about the ones dumped in the Wells of Bama? Is jonaTAN sure that those corpses are not those of the Chibok girls? Generally he lives in denial. Like somebody said here, I’d rather go be a slave in one of the countries ravaged by Ebola than remain in a Nigeria where jonaTAN will be president for another blightful four years

    • Kitunde

      To debate with our president on his warped logic ‘that since we have not seen the bodies of the Chibok girls on display shows they are alive’ is to join him in his macabre dance!

      The last general election was anything but free and fair. The only political parties that could complain of election rigging are those parties that lacked the resources to rig. There is ample evidence that rigging and thuggery were relative to the resources available to the parties. This conclusively proved to us that the parties have not developed confidence in the presidential system of government on which the nation invested so much material and human resources. While corruption and indiscipline have been associated with our state of under-development, these two evils in our body politics have attained unprecedented height in the past few years. The corrupt, inept and insensitive leadership in the last four years has been the source of immorality and impropriety in our society.

    Nigeria is not a poor country but it is only people that have stolen our wealth. And there is something wrong when a President sees nothing wrong with corruption. Nigeria’s wealth is used to service those in authority. The poor have been misplaced or non existence. The money one of the Minister spends on her private jet is enough to build a refinery in this country but since they don’t have the interest of the country they prefer to continue to steal through fuel subsidy and fuel importation.

      Why you mustn’t take Premium Times seriously…
      It’s unabashedly an APC propaganda instrument!
      Just check out the type of thing they write and call a story or report…
      No professional would take Premium Times seriously, except the ones lying to themselves..
      What they are trying to do here is simple: preempt the polls…
      The idea is to create a false impression that Buhari is the more popular candidate, and ready the ground for bloodbath if and when the man is thrashed at the polls…
      Why flog a dead horse that cannot respond?
      Buhari can never become the president of Nigeria….
      Nigeria is a constitutional democracy, where not just anybody can aspire to the highest office in the land, except he/she meets certain constitutional parameters, of which the 73 year old falls short…
      Buhari can never become the president of Nigeria, quote me!

      • New Nigerian

        How can we quote an alias? How would you want someone who just killed 35,540 Nigerians in 4 years, stolen about $100billion, continues to pump our at 400,000 barrels per day for himself, even as he spends the external reserves on his sick re-election project with no other agenda except to continue the tyranny of the minority! even if he kills Nigeria in the process.

    The only thing that gives Jonathan and his PDP cohorts the confidence to say they will win the forthcoming election is because they believe they have perfected their rigging plans and that nothing can prevent their crooked agenda from materialising. Well, they have not included the ALMIGHTY CREATOR in their calculations….that is why all Believers in GOD must pray hard and HE will manifest His Power on D-Day to torpedo the evil plans and machinations of the PDP riggers. There is no way Jonathan can beat Buhari without rigging the election and he knows it too. The Lord is in control. The Egyptian chariots were put to shame when the Lord decided that it was time for his Anointed people to be freed from Egyptian bondage…..so shall it be on March 28. The fire of the Almighty shall consume ANYONE and EVERYONE who attempt to rig on that day and throughout the elections!

    We the people of Nigeria say never again would we have our leaders commit so much evil in our names. We would rise and preserve a better Nigeria for ourselves and coming generations. We would vote for Gen. Muhammadu Buhari massively, make the vote count and have him, God willing, as the Next President of Nigeria starting May 29, 2015. And we the people would demand justice before God and in the world court for evil committed in our names by the Jonathan’s administration. This has already started and we are confident that justice will be served in the heavens and on earth against those who have committed these heinous crimes against humanity and bent on killing Nigeria & Nigerians:

    Important Announcement from the International Court of Justice (ICC) on Jonathan’s administration:

    [Massive wholesale theft of this dimension, especially in an environment where there is a raging genocide in the North and mass kidnappings in the oil producing area (The Oil minister’s familu just got kidnapped) are crimes against a society and a people. Any patriot who wants to blow the whistle on the transactions of what actually happened to the $20billion or who authorized the disbursement of kerosene subsidies that was stopped through presidential directive should forward the details ]

    “”International Criminal Court’s Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) is currently conducting preliminary examinations in a number of situations including Afghanistan, Georgia, Guinea, Colombia, Honduras, Korea and Nigeria)…[Thanks to President Jonathan’s administration can you see that Nigeria is in the league of rogue nations??!!!]

    [Fellow Nigerians, please forward whatever details you know about the Genocide in Northern Nigeria (35,540 dead to date, millions displaced) under President Goodluck Jonathan, the ex-militant-oil-for-arms details relative to the 400,000 crude oil per day theft since 2011 (more than $60billion) and politically-motivated killings, violence or threats to the International Criminal Court by mail, email or fax]:

        With the tedious nature of the office he seeks why Buhari, a 73 year old man, who’s mentally and physically shriveled that currently the man is not even his own man, as old age continues to take a toll on him…
        Not that the political consequence of a Buhari presidency (although impossible) is lost on his backers, but they seek to exploit and reap from it….

      The chairman of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) Senator Mojisoluwa Akinfewa, has said that the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is unfit to play a key role in Nigeria politics and should be chased out of the country.
      Akinfenwa made this assertion during the handing over of the party’s flag to the gubernatorial candidate of the party in Lagos, Bola Ogunseye.
      “The force behind APC is Tinubu, he is the engine room, the founder, the leader, the owner. Lagos is the theatre of political war for 2015 elections. 80 per cent of the resources of the state belong to this man who must be chased out of the political arena of Nigeria,” he said.
      The chairman alleged that Tinubu has conquered Lagos and acquired it,
      stressing that he performed this great feat through manoeuvring, scheming and arrangement noting that everything about him is by arrangement, his birth, place of birth, education, governorship, are all ‘arrangee business’.
      He further stated that Tinubu having conquered and acquired Lagos, has now shifted his attention to conquer and acquire Nigeria, noting that if allowed, it might be the end of true democracy in Nigeria, as the National Assembly will be a mere rubber stamp.

    Jonathan shall win with 13% vote margin – British Pollster

    Kevin, Charlyn & Kimberly Associates, a UK based
    research and political risk consultancy firm has stated that incumbent
    President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party will win the 2015
    Presidential Election with a margin of 13 per cent (probability).

      Jonathan will win 24 states including Lagos – Brooking Institute America

      A Washington-based influential think-tank in the United
      States of America (USA), the Brookings Institution, has said the odds in
      Nigeria’s presidential election favor President Goodluck Jonathan of the
      Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

      Though the election is expected to be very competitive, the odds still favor

      President Jonathan. The Brookings report gives the PDP victory in 24 states

      and predicts victory for the APC in 12. While it gave the APC victory in the

      North-west and North-east as well as Niger State, it gave PDP victory in all

      the southern states except Osun. It also gave the PDP victory in the
      North-central states except Niger as well as North-eastern states of

      Taraba and Adamawa and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

      • Wishful thinking from fake Brookings to Corrupter-in-Chief Jonathan.

          Nigeria’s presidential election favor President Goodluck Jonathan of the
          Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

          Though the election is expected to be very competitive, the odds still favor
          President Jonathan. The Brookings report gives the PDP victory in 24 states
          and predicts victory for the APC in 12. While it gave the APC victory in the
          North-west and North-east as well as Niger State, it gave PDP victory in all
          the southern states except Osun. It also gave the PDP victory in the

        @Yomi,

        I think in another 100 years or so, history will record Mr. Goodluck
        Jonathan as the Liberator of Yorubaland from Jihadist Muslims led
        by Alhaji Raji Fashola and Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Yoruba Christians
        had since the year 1999 been wholly sold into servitude by the wholly
        corrupt Yoruba Pastors, Evangelists, Bishops, Preachers and Prelates.
        President Jonathan rose to free the non- thinking Yoruba Christians whose
        Pastors have been collecting ransom from the Muslim-dominated governments in
        Lagos by urging Christians to accept perpetual Muslim rule. For that, no Yoruba
        Pastor – none of them – will escape the wrath of God on their family for that
        heinous scriptural offence of selling Yoruba Christians into Muslims’ servitude.

    At age 20, Buhari joined the armed forces in 1962. His highest formal education before then was an elementary school leaving certificate in Arabic study. He then enrolled at the Nigerian Military Training College, Kaduna for a three-month preparation course as a cadet. He received additional seven months at Mons Officer Cadet School, Aldershot, UK, as a young trainee cadet.

    At age 21, Buhari, an ordinary cadet trainee, with no formal education than elementary school leaving certificate and just under one year in the Nigerian Army, with no military training than a trainee cadet, was commissioned Second Lieutenant, and promoted to Platoon Commander 2nd Infantry Brigade, Abeokuta in 1963.

    One factor contributed to Mr Buhari rapid commission and promotion in 1963. Violence had broken out in Yorubaland over the imprisonment of Chief Obafemi Awolowo and 21 other Yoruba citizens. They were all sentenced to an average of 10 years imprisonment by the Gambari/Ibo coalition government of Tafawa Balewa and Zik. Yoruba Youths at the time protested on the street of Lagos, Abeoluta, Ibadan, Ilorin and other cities, towns and villages.

    Hausa/Fulani and Ibo soldiers, which included Buhari were ‘ordered’ to shoot on sight and within the shortest distance of time, over 14,520 Yoruba citizens had been killed, over 50,000 injured and more than 20,000 houses burnt. Buhari, a 21-year old cadet trainee with no formal training or military experience was thus commissioned and promoted for killing Yoruba citizens.

    • buring spear

      At age 23, with no further military training, Buhari was promoted as Commander 2nd Infantry Battalion, 1965-67.

      At age 25, yet again, with no formal education or further military training, Buhari was appointed Brigade Major, 2 Sector 1st Infantry Division, 1967.

      At age 28, again with no formal education or further military training, Buhari was promoted Brigade Major and Commander, 31st Infantry Brigade, 1970-71.

      At age 29, also with no formal education or further military training, Buhari was promoted Assistant Adjutant-General 1st Infantry Division Headquarters, 1971-72.

      At age 31, Buhari attended the Defence Services Staff College, Indian, a Military Training School, awarding degrees in Defence and Strategic Studies on a four-year programme. Buhari, however, only attended the college for less than six months in 1973.

      At age 34, Buhari, with a military training akin to a Secondary School dropout, was appointed Military Governor, North-Eastern State (now Borno State) and Federal Commissioner for Petroleum and Energy, 1976-78.

      At age 39, Buhari, with a military training similar to a Secondary School dropout, was appointed Chairman, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and General Officer Commanding (GOC), 3rd Armored Division, Jos, 1981-83.

      At age 42, Buhari with a military training similar to a Secondary School dropout, ousted an elected civilian government through a military coup d’etat and was Head of State and Commander in Chief, Nigerian Armed Forces, 1983-85.

      Through nepotism, Buhari, with a primary school education and military training akin to a Secondary School dropout, became Head of State of Nigeria. The Yoruba, the most populated ethnic groups in Nigeria, and the economic backbone of the country, had always been excluded from the presidency of Nigeria. Today, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has been named as Buhari’s deputy. Prof. Osinbajo is a professor of Law with more than 35 years experience. He is a Yoruba but will now serve under Buhari, a Fulani with a primary school education and a man who failed military exams.

      The acceptance of Prof. Osinbajo has confirmed the age long thinking that the Yoruba are not only gullible but barbarians. Sambo, the Vice President of Nigeria is a Hausa/Fulani man, yet the Gambari are not satisfied and are using Boko Haram as a means of getting Jonathan out of government, but barbarians Yoruba are happy with Oponu Osinbajo as a Vice President to a Gambari.

    BUHARI STILL CLUELESS ON ECONOMIC ISSUES AFTER 32 YEARS – Richard Omoko
    I watched with keen interest the APC town hall meeting of Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th March, 2015. Various questions were asked on how APC intends to tackle such matters as Security, Job creation, Power generation, women empowerment, The exchange rate amongst others issues.

    In their response to the issues or questions asked, Buhari and his fellow APC stalwarts at the town hall meetings sounded like semi-illiterates when giving responses to this crucial matters of importance. Before we draw conclusions let us go back in history to how our economy used to be like before Buhari ceased power by force through a coup de ta in 1983.

    As a young lad I can remember vividly that this was how Nigeria was before Buhari ceased power by force
    1. When it came to exchange rate it was $1.00 exchanging for 0.60 kobo (yes if you didn’t know that), the British Pound Sterling was £1.00 exchanging for N2.00.
    2. We didn’t require visa’s to travel abroad. Now interestingly while you only needed to board a plane with your blank passport, your visa would be stamped at the point of entry in almost all nations of the world including the United Kingdom (UK). America was begging us Nigerians to come and visit (so we could spend our money there) they even offered free scholarships to most Nigerian students to study up to masters level, and when they finished their studies there were mouth watering offers of jobs and accommodation waiting for their picking should they decide to stay. Some Nigerians even had special luxury treatments given to them right from the airports at America.
    3. In most shops in the UK they would close their shops to other customers once they learnt that you were a Nigerian and intend to shop there. This treatment is only now meeted out to Arab sheiks.
    4. It was automatic citizenship for any Nigerian baby born in the UK, with immediate allowances for both baby and mother.
    5. Our International Trade fairs used to be a big issue, with every notable company from all nations in the world fighting to ensure their participation. These companies even released their products to Nigerians with only a promise to pay.
    6. The economy was bouyant and merriment was always in the air, every family had one reason to celebrate. People like Fela that were hooked on candies could afford to travel to the UK just to buy candies from his favourite shop. I could afford to buy my big dip for 50k.
    7. Nigerians were driving only brand new cars. You were considered poor if you happen to drive a car that was more than 3 years old talkless of buying a ‘tokubo’ vehicle (ie. Second hand vehicle). The major automobile plants were working a Volkswagen beetle was N3,000, a Peugeot 504 was N7,000.
    8. Prices of essential commodities were affordable, a can of liquid milk was 25k, a bottle of coca cola was 15k, a bag of rice was N15, a loaf of bread (family size) was 50k.
    There are more happenings I can reel out, however this is enough for our youths to digest as they never new how Nigeria was before Buhari came in is usual manner of brute force with no economic knowledge and destroyed everything.

    When Buhari ceased power in 1983.
    1. Buhari immediately introduced import license when he ceased power. This policy favoured only his cronies as they were the only one who had access to import license. They only obtained the licenses and sold it for a price without importing anything. Some would use such license to import sand from Saudi Arabia, expired tires from Europe, empty containers etc. They did this just to pocket the exchange dollar. The resultant effect was the shambles this caused by increasing black maketeering, increasing smuggling, creating a scramble for foreign currency and hence devaluing the naira. For those who do not know it was in Buhari’s regime that the dollar started to appreciate over the naira from what was 0.60kobo to $1.00.
    2. Buhari’s singular act of importing a human being in a crate (Umaru Dikko) from the UK resulted in the UK removing all those privileges that we enjoyed. From then on you can only come into the UK with a visa, and not anymore as a citizen of the common wealth. The United States also followed suit from this.
    3. His regime introduced Price control. This lack of elementary understanding of Pricing and the forces of Demand and Supply caused a lot of hardship for Nigerians as you had long queues for such ‘essential commodities’ as bread, milk, tea, sugar etc. Of course traders hoarded their wares as you couldn’t force them to sell at a loss thereby creating a sky rocketing inflation.
    4. The overblown stance of corruption and Nigeria being a drug nation dealt a big blow on our image internationally as most nations started viewing Nigerians with suspicion, to them every Nigerian is either corrupt or a drug dealer. The killing of Bartholome Owho and two others without a convincing trial made other countries view us as babaric. They were no longer comfortable in having business dealings with Nigerians based purely on trust. This we are seeing Buhari repeat yet again.

    Buhari’s current clamour after 32 years
    The chanting is yet to change after 32 years, the so called ‘change’ agent is still to change from his old ways.
    1. On security: as usual he continues to blow it out of proportion hence scaring intended foreign investors whose Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) would having given a boost to the economy and helped in creating jobs. Agreed the current security situation is not perfect, however only until this week did he acknowledge the efforts of our gallant soldiers. His utterances in the past has caused a lot of security breeches that had costs lives and properties of Nigerians. These statements he made had helped increased both followers and symphatisers of boko haram.
    2. On Economy: “I would create two million jobs in one year”. Free Education, free lunch, free monthly allowances/stipends for jobless youths, he wants to build four refineries in less than four years, his claims of single handedly increasing the price of crude oil and so on just goes to show that he still is clueless on the economy and how it operates. For instance how does he intend to increase the price of crude oil when he cannot control it’s demand and OPEC has limited control to its supply as a means of price increase instruments. They clamour oil theft (even though he would not tell you that it started way back in the 70’s when he was Petroleum Minister). For those who care to know the US being the largest consuming nation of crude oil is using Fracking and other new technologies to explore for crude as a result demand for global oil is low and the price has to fall because supply is constantly increasing due to oil theft not only from Nigeria but from all ISIS controlled nations and Libya inclusive.
    The clear difference between United Party of Nigeria (UPN) led by Awolowo and APC led by Tinubu is very simple. Awolowo would tell you that he would create jobs, industries, roads, free education and so on. Awo doesn’t stop at that he would break down the economy for you and show you where and how he would raise the money to perform and fulfil all his promises. That is why the till today the western region is still living off Awo’s legacies. Please someone ask Tinubu/Buhari (no pun intended as this is the ticket) to show us how they intend to raise the capital for their promises. They are only building castles in the sky.

      The only difference is that Tola Kasali goes to a
      mosque, and, Yemi Osinbajo goes to a church –
      but besides that fact, there is no difference at
      all, insofar as Tola Kasali declares Muslim supremacy,
      and, Yemi Osinbajo supinely agrees to it without objection
      for his own personal benefits.

    I live in Ireland. I read all the major poll projections in Europe.
    All say that PDP will win this 2015 election without any doubt.
    In fact, the Brookings Institute in America – most famed globally,
    says PDP will win 24 states i.e; all the 17 states in the South,
    including Lagos state. Is this also the sentiment on the ground?

    I ask because in Britain a similar poll carried out said the PDP
    will win comfortably by ‘as much as 13% margin’. If that is the case,
    i think this election is done and dusted. A wide 3% margin of defeat
    for the APC, as projected in the latest poll done in London, is not
    a neck-and-neck race but a complete rout of the APC party. This
    imminent outcome is a disgrace and likely because APC alienated
    majority Christians in Yorubaland with born-to-rule arrogance.

      APC cannot win any state in southern Nigeria O! We have been saying it here.
      Raufu Aregbesola will emerge next Sunday as the new national leader of APC.
      That is in Yorubaland though, since he’ll be the last man standing in Oshun state.
      All meetings of APC will thereafter be held in Oshogbo – the last place standing.

      “Jonathan will win 24 states including Lagos” –

      Brooking Institute America

      A Washington-based influential think-tank in the United States
      of America (USA), the Brookings Institution, has said the odds in
      Nigeria’s presidential election favor President Goodluck Jonathan of the
      Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Though the election is expected to be

      very competitive, the odds still favor President Jonathan.

      The Brookings report gives the PDP victory in 24 states,
      and predicts victory for the APC in 12 states.

      My friend, see something: 13% defeat = PDP 63% of total votes; and, APC with 37% of total votes.
      But what me i am saying is that APC margin of defeat will be more than 13% because of one thing.
      The scientists who predict 13% margin assume that Buhari is qualified to run but he’s not qualified.
      So just imagine that. Who is the other credible opponent when Buhari is disqualified? There’s none.

  • Acosta

    Victory for GEJ is well assured. No APC machinery can stop it

  • grace folarin

    Few reasons why i know GEJ will win;

    President Goodluck Jonathan
    came into power in may 2010, and since then he had achieved a lot for Nigeria
    in various spheres as;

    ROADS

    It is an obvious fact that
    president Goodluck has done tremendiously well in the construction of new
    roads, renovation and refurbishing of old ones. Roads like the
    lokoja-Abaji-Abuja road have been dualized, The Benin ore road had felt the
    touch of the president and many other important roads linking Nigerian cities,
    in which hitherto were death traps that has consumed a lot of nigerians.

    GENDER EQUALITY

    president Goodluck is no
    doubt one president that is gender friendly, as his administration has given
    women opportunities to man very important public offices in contrast with past
    governments which had relegated women to the back seat of governance.

    AGRICULTURE

    President Goodluck in
    Agriculture has really made a mark as millions of Nigerian farmers now have
    access to loans, improved seeds, have provided irrigation for dry season
    farming and also been able to intervene in the fertilizer racketeering that
    made it almost imposible for Nigerian farmers to access the product, mechanized
    farming had also been made possible. All these have contributed immensely in
    the development of the agricultural sector in the country.

    AVIATION

    It is a fact that in the
    aviation sector , There has been a major touch as there are international
    airports of world class standard available in the six geo-political zones of
    Nigeria and increased domestic airlines
    thanks to the Goodluck administration

    EDUCATION

    In education, almagiri
    schools have been provided in northern Nigeria, new universities built accross
    Nigeria, new technical schools built and old ones equiped and refobished, So
    also scholarships have been given to brilliant students to study both home and
    abroard.all these done in the goodluck administration.

      Who plots to kill President Jonathan?

      “Ex-military officers and security officers are trying to push aside the political contestants and
      use the (Boko Haram) unrest in the North-East as an excuse to establish an interim government.
      The nature of the interim government wants to pretend it’s not really a military intervention.
      A few political leaders, well-known civilians, want to give the veneer of civilian structure,
      but basically it’s a kind of political intervention. The proof is there of some participants
      in meetings for the formation of an interim government. Why form an
      interim government when there is an electoral process?”

    HISTORY WILL CELEBRATE PRESIDENT JONATHAN

    I think in another 100 years or so, history will record President Goodluck
    Jonathan as the Liberator of Yorubaland from the Jihadist Muslims
    led by Alhaji Raji Fashola and Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Since 1999,
    Yoruba Christians had virtually been wholly sold into servitude bycorrupt
    Yoruba Pastors, Evangelists, Bishops, Preachers and Prelates. But now,
    President Jonathan rose to free the enslaved Yoruba Christians whose
    Pastors have been collecting ransom on from Muslim-dominated governments in
    Lagos by urging Christians to accept perpetual Muslim rule. For that, no Yoruba
    Pastor – none of them – will escape the wrath of God on their family for the
    heinous scriptural offence of selling Yoruba Christians into Muslims’ servitude.

So, with his declaring Islamic Jihad ahead of this 2015 presidential election, through the pathway of universal Sharia law to be declared all the 36 states, he can be rest assured of zero vote in Cross-Rivers state, for sure, unless he has a first cousin in Calabar with one voter card.

        ISLAMIC AGENDA OF YORUBA MUSLIMS IN APC

        Buhari is not contesting 2015 election to fight corruption; no, no, no, he is contesting
        ONLY to advance ISLAMIST SUPREMACY in Nigeria. He has no other plan or idea.
        After SHARIA LAW is enthroned as public law in the 36 states, Buhari’s Fulani tribe
        would be the PERMANENT RULING CLASS In that wise.

        YORUBA MUSLIMS would then be PERMANENTLY assured of the number two (2) position
        on the hierarchy of the Islamist State of Nigeria. That’s what APC party is all about.
        APC is an electoral version of the rabid Al Qaeda fight for
        Islamic State of Nigeria.

        What is still being disguised as election in 2015 is actually a full-blown ISLAMIC JIHAD
        to capture the YORUBA CHRISTIANS. The trick is to give brooms to naive Yoruba Christians
        for them to wave around and mislead them that APC is the same old and secular
        Alliance for Democracy (AD) party.

        • Omo Eleniyan

          ………..(2) ISLAMIC AGENDA OF YORUBA MUSLIMS IN APC

          The purpose of going to school is to have and sharpen one’s ability to reason.
          Yoruba Christians are likely the best educated groups in Nigeria, but alas, they
          are becoming the least thinking. I am writing this letter out of extreme anger plus
          huge dis-appointment at Yoruba Christians who are being led by the nose to a
          slaughterhouse by the Muslims but told they’re only being taken on a frolic.

          What is progressive in Muhammadu Buhari’s ATAVISM to take Yorubaland by the scruff
          of the neck and throw it back inside the time-warp of 1804 A.D Islamic Jihad of the Sokoto Caliphate? What is progressive in the rulership by a man having a primary school certificate?

          What is progressive in the APC announcing a plan to enact Sharia Law in the 36 states –
          given that nation-wide Sharia Law is a very good definition of Islamic State of Nigeria?
          Muslims are defining “Islamism” as “progressive” for educated Christians to accept.
          Whereas, APC is an Islamic organization – full of Alhajis – signifying nothing
          except servitude for Yoruba Christians not given to folly, like Pastor Yemi Oshinbajo.

    With the polls closed in Israel, international election observers now turn their attention to the Nigerian elections on March 28. The choice for the leader of Africa’s most populous country pits Goodluck Jonathan from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) against Mohammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The decision by the roughly 73 million registered Nigerian voters could have a profound impact on the future of Africa.

    But Western foreign policy observers pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria. Opposition candidate General Buhari wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria. In fact, he wants it everywhere.

    “I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria,” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country.”

    Agitation? Is this an indication that Mr. Buhari supports violence because the end goal of the terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria and Africa is an Islamic state? It is a legitimate question that should be asked by leaders of the Obama administration.

    Boko Haram has pledged its allegiance and support to ISIS. The Northern Nigerian based Islamic terrorist group wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria and beyond. They are also actively terrorizing Chad, Niger and Cameroon with their goal of an Islamic state.

    Mr. Buhari has also spoken sympathetically about members of the terrorist group Boko Haram, has cautioned against a rush to judgement on its members and has personally been selected by the terrorist group to lead its negotiations with the Government of Nigeria. Mr. Buhari’s election as Nigeria’s head of state would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble for the West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.

            all along been on U.S court records as a plea-bargained drugs-running criminal.
            Next, what did you do to mitigate your losses. Nothing sensible!!

            Like drunken mariners you trooped out against the facts to elect Alhaji Raji Fashola
            who struggled through a third-rate Birch Freeman Secondary school in Lagos, not so?
            What did you expect should happen? It is a fact that 99% of Lagosians did NOT know
            anything about Raji Fashola or ever saw or heard him before or read anything he
            ever wrote showing you his values and thought-process.

            Is it any wonder that between Bola Tinubu and Raji Fashola, ALL of the $40 billion revenue
            of Lagos state has been recklessly blown and majorly stolen. The legacy you have in Lagos
            state is just the un-precedented debt of $3.7 billion now owed by Lagos state government.
            You deserve such swindling in Lagos state because you are mostly retards in that place –
            so easy to dupe with just a broom and no shot fired to rob all of you in daylight. Shame!!!

      @ NO COMMENT,

      See, Global Security Report establishes the existence of Muslim cells in Yorubaland allied to Al Qaeda,
      besides the tens of militant fighters of Yoruba origin captured by the Nigerian Army on the battlefield
      as Jihadists in the ranks of Boko Haram. When Yoruba Christians wake up from slumber they will realize
      they are surrounded by the most virulent and militant Muslims today – not the Muslims they knew before.

      I pity Yoruba Christians because they are un-armed and defenceless – even though they’re 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’.

    “It will be a disaster for all of Africa if Buhari is elected”

    Mr. (Muhammadu) Buhari’s election as Nigeria’s head of state
    would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble for the
    West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.

    Western foreign policy observers, pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS
    of ISIS in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria.
    Opposition candidate General Buhari wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria.

    In fact, he wants it everywhere. I will continue to show openly and
    inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over
    Nigeria,”
    Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop
    the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country
    .”

    Agitation? Is this an indication that Mr. Buhari supports violence because
    the end goal of the terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria and Africa is an
    Islamic state? It is a legitimate question that should be asked by
    leaders of the Obama administration.

    ‘BUHARI’,the antidote to corruption-WHAT A HUGE LAUGH!!
    ONE month ago, the APC had whipped its supporters into frenzy in believing it is bound to win an election it really has no chance of winning. In truth, if the election had been conducted then for chairman of the EFCC, Muhammadu Buhari would have been declared winner by a landslide. However, with postponement of the election, a lot of water has passed under the bridge. Even Buhari’s self-styled credential as Mr. Integrity has unraveled.
    Buhari’s entire campaign posture for the 2015 presidential election stands on two shaky grounds. He fashions himself as Mr. Integrity; the implacable enemy of corruption in Nigeria. He is the one who reportedly is going to ensure that corruption is a thing of the past in Nigeria. He is also the one who is going to destroy the Boko Haram in the twinkling of an eye; even though a number of months ago, he was negotiating for amnesty and golden handshakes for the insurgents, and they nominated him as their preferred middleman in any truce negotiation with Nigeria.

    File photo; Tinubu and Buhari – leaders of ACN and CPC
    Buhari’s disappearance
    Things have not gone too well for the Buhari campaign since the postponement of the election. He did not help things by disappearing off the political radar for virtually two weeks. By the time he re-surfaced, Boko Haram was toast. We no longer needed Buhari’s vain promissory notes to deal with the insurgency. One after another, town after town were recovered from the Boko Haram. In many respects, they have been routed as the Nigerian army came into its own after having received its new consignment of weapons.
    As a result, we are no longer hearing anything from Buhari about whipping Boko Haram. All he had left was his anti-corruption mantra. But that one also came to grief with the airing of AIT’s tripartite documentary entitled: “The Lion of Bourdillon.” This alleged that Bola Tinubu, the self-styled national leader of the APC, is steeped in corruption. It claims Tinubu is the biggest landlord in Lagos, and maintains he has acquired so much property through very sharp practices.
    While the veracity of these allegations is yet to be ascertained beyond reasonable doubt, the documentary has brought to the fore the flies in the anti-corruption ointment of Buhari. The truth is that corruption in Nigeria is not the exclusive preserve of the PDP. It is also the chronic ailment of the APC. Neither is corruption only the malaise of the Federal Government; it is equally the malaise of state governments, including those ruled by the APC. Indeed, Murtala Nyako of the APC was impeached and removed as governor of Adamawa State partly because it was alleged that he had corruptly enriched himself with government funds.
    The question then is this: Does Buhari’s so-called zero-tolerance for corruption extend to his APC colleagues? Will Buhari, in the unlikely event that he becomes president, go after APC thieves as well as PDP thieves? Or will he turn a blind eye to APC thieves and molly-cuddle them? Suddenly, the anti-corruption searchlight turned on to Buhari and his friends, and just as suddenly, we discovered what some of us have always known: that Buhari, the Emperor of Anti-Corruption, has no clothes.
    Buhari’s response to the issue of corruption in APC ranks reeked with sheer hypocrisy and double-standards. Like charity, Buhari’s anti-corruption must begin at home in the APC if it is to be credible. However, Buhari is not inclined to prosecute his friends. Instead, he came up with a pronouncement that virtually rubbished his anti-corruption posture. He said: “Whoever that is indicted of corruption between 1999 to the time of swearing-in, would be pardoned. I am going to draw a line, anybody who involved himself in corruption after I assume office, will face the music.”
    Insurance for corrupt supporters
    This means as long as you steal money between 1999 and 2011, you have nothing to fear under a Buhari presidency. This is, of course, an insurance policy for his corrupt supporters, assuring them that they would have nothing to fear by giving him their vote. Buhari did not come out in strident support of Bola Tinubu. He did not come out to tell the world that, contrary to the AIT documentary, the Bola Tinubu he knows is a man of unimpeachable integrity. Instead, he told the world that if there are thieves among his friends, they can rest assured that he would pardon their thievery.
    When President Jonathan pardoned the former governor of Bayelsa, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, a man who had been convicted of corruption and was a refugee from justice from Britain, Nigerians were incensed. This was rightly seen as the president condoning corruption. One would have thought this kind of thing would not occur with a man who talks anti-corruption day and night. However, in the case of Buhari, he would not only pardon one corrupt associate, he would pardon them all.
    When asked how he was going to get funds to revitalise the economy, Buhari stated that he was going to get all corrupt past leaders and officials cough out their stolen money. This was nothing but a nonsensical policy. It is bizarre and odd for Buhari to think he can run Nigeria, revamp the educational system for example, by recovering stolen money. Where will he get this money from? Who will give it to him? Would such recovered money not amount to a storm in the teacup?
    But now that he has dumped this anti-corruption charade in favour of a blanket pardon for the corrupt, it is clear that political reality is beginning to erode Buhari’s highfalutin campaign grandstanding. It is equally significant that Buhari’s new stance on corruption comes coincidentally after AIT documentary on “The Lion of Bourdillon,” where one of his most important allies was accused of corruption. Clearly, it is high time Buhari stopped deluding Nigerians that he is genuinely anti-corruption and that he can eradicate corruption in Nigeria by sending corrupt politicians to jail.
    Buhari was Nigeria’s head-of-state for a period of 18 months in the 1980s. At the time, he ran so rough-shod over the Nigerian judicial system that the Nigerian Bar Association proscribed Nigerian lawyers from appearing in any of Buhari’s kangaroo courts. Buhari sent both corrupt and non-corrupt politicians to jail, sometimes for up to 300 years. Nevertheless, corruption was not eradicated. It continued unabated because it was not addressed structurally. Even the practice under Obasanjo of shooting armed robbers by firing squad in Bar Beach failed to stop armed robbery. All it did was to brutalise the Nigerian public.
    Jonathan’s effective approach
    Surely, the more reasonable and effective method is to remove the avenues for corruption. This is what Goodluck Jonathan has been doing. He has sanitized the payroll system by removing some 50,000 ghost-workers, saving the country a whopping N200 billion in the first instance. He has removed the fertilizer middlemen; saving Nigeria hundreds of billions of naira. He has sanitized the electoral register. Over three million ghost voters have been removed; one million in Zamfara State alone. He is going after corruption in the oil sector with the Petroleum Industry Bill.
    In the vainglorious case of Buhari, it did not help matters that he fought corruption with corruption. He interfered blatantly in the judicial process. The judge who sent Fela to jail later went to apologise to him in hospital afterwards that he did it under government duress. Nevertheless, some members of the Nigerian public, baying for the blood of corrupt politicians, hanker back to the high-handed days of the Buhari era, when the human rights of innocent Nigerians were violated on the altar of anti-corruption, and some Nigerians were even judicially murdered under heinous retroactive decrees.
    What Buhari is not telling them is that he has no power to do this under today’s democratic dispensation. Buhari goes on the stomp and says: “When we come into power, anyone who steals Nigerian money will end up in Kirikiri Maximum Prisons. We are going to make sure that Nigeria’s wealth belongs only to Nigerians.” But the truth of the matter is that, in a democracy, the president does not have the judicial power to send anybody to Kirikiri. If the EFCC does not prosecute, the president cannot become the chairman of the EFCC. If the judges do not convict, Buhari cannot transform himself into a judge.
    Deceived electorate
    All those who have been deceived into believing that Buhari will just become president and begin to lock up corrupt politicians left, right and centre are dreaming. In the unlikely event that Buhari becomes president, he will neither have the power to do so, nor the inclination to do so. The reason is simple: many of the thieves are his friends and allies in the APC. Buhari talks change, but he is running around with the old breed of politicians. You can always tell a lot about a man by the composition and character of his friends.
    Buhari fashions himself as Mr. Integrity, nevertheless, he was not averse to serve under Sani Abacha, one of the most corrupt heads-of-state in the history of Nigeria. Even more significant, Buhari insisted that Abacha was not corrupt at all. On the 10th anniversary of Abacha’s death, Buhari told incredulous Nigerians that all the allegations of looting the treasury leveled against Abacha were “baseless.” He said: “ten years after Abacha, those allegations remain unproven because of lack of facts.”
    Buhari held this position in spite of the millions of dollars of Abacha’s loot recovered from banks around the world, and in spite of the fact that the Abacha’s family signed a formal agreement to return over $1 billion of such monies to the Nigerian government. We can see therefore that, from the point of view of Buhari, only the PDP has the copyright on corruption. Every allegation of corruption leveled against his friends and financiers must surely be “baseless.”
    It is this kind of double standard that prompted Buhari to jail Vice-president Ekwueme while only putting President Shagari under house arrest. Fela Anikulapo-Kuti poked fun at this in one of his songs. He said: “Driver commit accident Buhari lock conductor.” Given the many corrupt drivers that abound in Buhari’s APC’s, we can anticipate that he will only be interested in locking up conductors in the unlikely event that he ever becomes preside

    NIGERIAN DO NOT BE MISLED BY POLITICIANS

    The inspector General of the Nigerian Police, has warned Nigerians to cast their votes and leave the polling area, immediately, so that law and order can be maintained.

    Professor Jega and APC are saying the opposite, encouraging people to mill around polling booths after voting, which will spark off serious disturbances, fights and complete breakdown of law and order.

    This can lead to security issues, whereby the Police and security agencies will be forced to maintain law and order, immediately.

    Nigerians, do not be misled by the selfish ambitions of others or be allowed to be used as their electoral thugs or even cannon fodder.

    Kindly be advised to follow the security instructions of the inspector General of Police of Nigeria, abide by the laws, leave the polling booth after voting at once and do not for any reason get involved in any illegal electoral act, criminal matter or violent acts.

    Complaints will be treated by the relevant agencies, electoral tribunals and the courts of law, and not by milling around polling booths to cause illegal disturbances, criminal acts of announcing parallel results or illegal acts of treason like forming a parallel Government.

    Election tribunals and the courts of the land are the only institutions vested with the constitutional powers to deal with electoral issues.

    Nigerians be warned, to not follow the misadvise of those who seem to want to cause electoral instability, insecurity, violence and even what may lead to treasonable acts.

    God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Brandon Tor

      The job of the police is to maintain law and order, not to tell Nigerians how the elections should be conducted. That is the job of INEC. If we waited in 2003, 2007 and 2011, why is 2015 under Jonathan different? Jonathan cannot rig this election. The will of the people must prevail. The IG and others like him must know that Nigerians cannot be intimidated or disenfranchised. You all waste your time planning to rig. Yeye people and yeye party-PDP.

    THE MANY SINS OF BUHARI (A CHANGE AGENT?) – Richard Omoko

    Some of the people blind folded by the APC toga of ‘change’ do not clearly understand what they are getting into, while I agree that you have some decent elements in the party APC. Yes decent human beings that are better respected and even I regard as great mentors of society and generations to come. This class of people are well liked and highly respected individuals that you may not compare them with some rascals and truants that you may find in other parties. I often wonder why the APC is a party filled with ‘strange bed fellows’, if you check the composition of the APC you would discover that it is a party filled predominantly of desperate and disgruntled politicians from the PDP and other parties.

    As a young boy my dad often warned me not to have any form of dealings with a desperate individual and that by so doing I would have my fingers burnt and regret it afterwards. As he would say “a desperate man can kill”, this frightening words have never left my mind since I was a boy. A lot of young people do not understand what dangers these desperate men you currently have in the APC portends to the security, peace and unity of Nigeria as a country that’s why I call on the decent few I have earlier described that are still within their rank and file, and also young boys and girls who never knew the antecedents of these desperate characters to please ‘shine your eyes’. Pastor Tunde Bakare even said it better “I trust Buhari but I don’t trust the environment that he is in”. Get this right Buhari is not a demon, nor is he demented but matter of fact is that as the saying goes “The evil that men do lives with them”.
    Buhari’s and his many sins
    1. Human rights: Because of Buhari and Babaginda, Fela Anikulapo Kuti composed several songs like ‘Overtake don overtake overtake’, ‘Animal in human skin’, ‘Animal can’t dash us human rights’. Fela may have been a ‘prophet’ of his time. I agree with him though in some of his words, if you have abused the rights of others you can’t turn around now and pretend to ‘dash’ us human rights under the pretence of Change. A leopard cannot change its spots. Buhari ceased power in 1983 and systematically abused Nigerians of their rights of justice and fair hearing. Politicians were accused of bogus crimes of corruption and tried under kangaroo courts, while there may have been a few who were corrupt, the innocent were not spared. They were given heavy sentencing some as much as 323 years. The trauma such people as Ambrose Ali faced in prison was what killed him afterwards. Like Ahmadu Bello, Ambrose Ali after massively developing Bendel state had to his credit only one small bungalow in his home town.
    2. Decree 4 and Decree 2: He was infamous for his constant harassment of the Press and Civil rights groups as a means of concealing the truth from ordinary Nigerians. At will he threw people into jail without any form of charge and such journalist as Nduka Irabor would tell you of their experiences. Some were tortured and are still traumatised till today, some even lost their lives in the process.
    3. Ghana must go: As a child growing up our economy was booming and as such we had a lot of foreigners living around us. We had Asians especially Indians and Pakistanis, Eastern Europeans and of course Africans all running from economic hardships in their countries. Some were professionals and experts in their fields and we also had artisans and others who did menial labour, we had some Africans who were professionals but most were involved in menial work. Interestingly of all these sets of people that were in Nigeria Buhari singled out Ghanians and sent them packing without any form of compensation and compassion. If you must note during the civil war a lot of Nigerians ran to Ghana to take cover even Nnamdi Azikiwe schooled in Ghana. Some of these Nigerians that escaped the civil war married their Ghanian girl friends and boy friends and returned to Nigeria after the war was over. To be sent packing in such a manner was indeed callous, and painfully some were forced to leave with just only a bag irrespective of the wealth or properties that they had accumulated from decent hard work. So young people as you go out to the shops to buy that ‘Ghana must go’ bag without knowing truly why they call those bags with such a name, now you know.
    4. Economic policies: I don’t need again to explain to you that Buhari is bereft of ideas when it comes to economic issues and the handling of the economy. Start with the reprinting of the naira when he ceased power. As a boy we were jubilant that we were seeing the new face of the naira, what we didn’t understand then was the economic impact and the implications. His excuse for doing so was that corrupt politicians who had stolen funds hidden under their beds may not be able to exchange their cash for the new currency. The impact of this together with his import license policy helped to devalue the naira and rubbish it’s exchange power. Before he ceased power the naira had a strong exchange value against major currencies for decades the naira had been exchanging for £1.00/N2.00 and $1.00/0.60 kobo. For the first time ever it was during Buhari’s regime that the naira started to depreciate in value. It’s laughable when now he is the same person shouting that naira is exchanging at $1.00/N220.00. Even with this all is not lost as the Chinese and Japanese constantly and intentionally devalue their currency as a means to curbing dumping of products and hence boosting local production. Now the desperate politicians are encouraging him to make promises like building four refineries, free education, free lunch, monthly stipends and allowances for jobless youths and so on without proper economic planning and drafting.
    5. Irresponsible utterances: His irresponsible utterances especially with disregard to its security implications have cost some Nigerians their lives and properties. He had said “The baboons and monkeys would be soaked in their blood” who are these baboons and monkeys? His utterances during and after the elections of 2011 were not helpful either. How do you place your self interest above the lives of the innocent and even the nation? Al Gore knew he won the elections but he allowed the interest of America to over shadow his personal interest. Even my dearly beloved Baba Obasanjo allowed the general interest of Nigeria to subdue his personal interest and agenda of running for office as President for a third term. To me that’s being a true statesman.
    6. Irresponsible actions and inactions: When people were being killed in 2011 under the guise of defending their votes as encouraged by Buhari. He did not come out to make an immediate statement or plea for these miscreants to stop forthwith.
    7. The costs of crating Umaru Dikko: Before he parcelled Umaru Dikko in a crate Nigerians had easy access into the United Kingdom (UK) and USA. With a return ticket costing only N500 and just your passport you can travel into these countries without a visa, but his brute approach cost us dearly, the UK came down heavily on Nigerians and withdrew the privileges of travelling under a common wealth of nations. They went further and started denying citizenship to Nigerians born in the UK.
    8. Total disregard to women: Initially when contacted on his opinion of the office of the first lady, he had said that he would scrap this office as it had no meaning nor place in his administration. However, having faced a lot of backlash and criticism from Nigerians and international organisations he is forced to go against his will of incorporating women in his government should he win. Now you may find a repackaged Aisha Buhari frying akara (bean cake) in Abuja. Even if APC do not agree with it, GEJ has remained the only government in Nigeria that has worked for the cause of fully incorporating and representing women in government.
    9. Islamic agenda: His penchant for fighting the cause and fully supporting sharia is not hidden to many. As such the christian north are wary of supporting him. The fear generally in the minds of people is that this unrepentant supporter of sharia may well be the trump card or joker for Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) or maybe ISIS currently on a jihaddist campaign, if you would recall boko haram that pledged allegiance to ISIS had nominated Buhari as it’s spokesman.
    Please truth be told, Nigerians be wary of desperate politicians who are serving their own interest, again I repeat Buhari is a good man and his intentions may have been good but his sins are living with him. The environment that he currently finds himself is one of suspicion and not to be trusted as Chinua Achebe describes it ‘Things fall apart and the center cannot hold’ that is what the APC stands for.
