    • Lanre

      My dear Lady Rosely. It is too late. If Thomas John has any balls he should reject this appointment. Akinyelure will not. I know my Yoruba people. We have to meet in Ile-Oluji for our owanbe with Sunny Ade.Loool.

      • Rasaq Kasumu

        Tell us why he should reject the appointment

      • Julius

        Moron, you are not a Yoruba man. Keep fooling yourself.

      • Mufu Ola

        Indentity yourself. Only fraudsters steal other people’s indentity to comment on issues.

    • henry

      Listen to yourself again and ask this question :can kachiwku be the minister, Group director and chairman of the board of NNPC?
      This is even the first time that the minister will be the GMD of NNPC at the same time..

      • Rasaq Kasumu

        Thank you Henry. I don’t know why some people will not stop drinking Ogogoro before commenting on facebook.

        • whales1212

          Sometimes you can’t blame these gullible sets of people, often time they don’t read content, just the headlines. These journalists too are irresponsible with their headlines, there’s no need for the headline given up there.

        people are just dull,nor mind them!

    • Oracle

      Not a disgrace o. He is an explosive to national unity and integration. I bet you PMB will office with a more divided Nigeria since independence.

    • Julius

      What was Jonathan practicing with all the Ibos in his admin ? Can you answer that for me maam ?

      • OOkkoossiissii

        Its either you are ignorant of history or wicked or intentionally burying your head in the sand.

        The GMDs of NNPC under Yar’Adua /Jonathan governments were the following

        I. The 3 GMDs appointed by Yar’Adua

        1. Abubakar Yar’Adua 2007-2009 (President Yar’Adua’s relative)
        2. Muhammed Barkindo 2009-2010 (a prince from Yola; now SG of OPEC),
        3. Shenu Ladan 2010-2010 (Alhaji Ladan was unwell and died of cancer on October, 4, 2011)

        The 3 GMDs appointed by Jonathan:

        4. Adeiza Oniwon 2010-2012 (Oniwon is Kogi; North Central)
        5. Thlama Dawha 2012-2014 (from Kaduna State)
        6. Laah Yakubu 2014-2015 (from Borno State)

        Therefore, UMY appointed 3 GMDs; GEJ appointed 3 GMDs, but he inherited one from UMY. All of the appointees were from the North.

        It is also interesting to note that no one from the SE has ever been the GMD of NNPC. The irony is that the SE produces oil; the North produces not a single drop of oil!

        • Julius

          So why didnt you fake cry to Jonathan then ?

          • OOkkoossiissii

            I am not defending Jonathan or defending Buhari. I am only stating the facts so that you and other ‘genuine’ folks can have the information you need to reason conscientiously (assuming that you still have a conscience).

          • Julius

            Thank you for the info Mr. conscience. Again, why didnt you fake cry when Jonathan was doing what he wanted to do ? Im sure, being so wise and smart, you knew some other tribes complained about Jonathan on the same issue. Aint see you yapping then !

          • OOkkoossiissii

            Just as I suspected your conscience is as dead as a dodo. I will not honour you with any further reponses! Carry on with your jaundiced ideas.

          • Julius

            dodo ke. I should carry on because you have no answer for my question and facts. I got it. In order words, you lost your not so thought out points the silly argument .

    • soyo

      Go and die, Lady Hibiscus!

      • LadyRosely

        All these malnourished children. Go and feed your starving brothers in IDP camps

  • Artful ºDodger

    Where is the sack here Premium Times?

    • Salvation Ohamadike

      Artful Dodger you are here too? From vanguard to punch then here!

    • Julius

      Good question.

  • Lanre

    I laugh in Spanish. Confusion all over. Clueless Muhammudu Buhari with the vengeful heart of an unforgiven soldier. So the North now controls and manages resources that are in the South. Let’s see Akinyelure is a Tinubu appointee. Thomas John, maybe a word from Babangida. Nigeria is a Joke!

    • Artful ºDodger

      The South of Nigeria you mean? Unless you are talking of the South of Afghanistan, Somalia etc, every Nigerian still have the right to be appointed anywhere in the country!

      • Salvation Ohamadike

        Artful Dodger you are here too? From vanguard to punch then here! Always canterkerous!

    • Rasaq Kasumu

      You are Lanre indeed?

      • Julius

        He is an Ibo man. Thats what they do best , scams. Criminals try to be who they are not. Imagine them calling other people cowads when they are changing names to post comments in an online faceless forum. That says a lot about them. They are the only people doing that. We know why.

    • Julius

      But, you are still in the country. Who and what is stopping you from moving out and renounce your citizenship. Thats what any sane person would do when they think that their country is a Joke. Abegi, hurry up and leave. Just go !!

    • GEJ FOREVER

      Dr Thomas John is holding the position for T. Y. Danjuma not Babangida

      • Lanre

        Thank you for the correction.

  • Harry Haruna

    This is better he should have removed the kachukwu

  • Gouken

    Kind of a misleading headline. Kachikwu’s been moved upstairs, so to speak, whilst someone new has been appointed GMD.

    • GEJ FOREVER

      Sorry man … Kachikwu has been rendered redundant …… it is the GMD that runs the day-to-day operations …. The Chairman may just attend 3 or 4 Board meetings in a year …….. Kachikwu is gone!

      • Rasaq Kasumu

        At least he will be there to give his imput don’t forget his responsible to the President not the Chairman.

      • share Idea

        Minister of petroleum Buhari. In a board of 6 members, does minister stand any chance to influence the decision of the board? It is now, Kachukwu will understand the game Buhari and his northern cabals are planning. Just last week, he told the world that he signed MOU of about $80B and today, he is no longer the head.

        APC and their party of lies and propaganda

        • Mufu Ola

          So he signed MOU of $80b. On personal capacity.Abi? Why don’t u guys just grow up

        • tundemash

          Share Dunce, was that not same post held by Denziani ?

          • share Idea

            Dezeani was petroleum minister without any minister of state. our law requires that minister of petroleum has the highest power of discretion. If the minister of state that performs functions that are delegated to him or her by the main minister can influence much in the sector is a known fact that it the person will not.

            Imagine being the chairman of a board that does not sit for the day to day running of the government. Buhari have achieved his aim, appoint someone from SS to calm frayed nerve and clannishly remove some of his powers. Has the president tried to balance the people that make up the security leaders in the country – no, but he can conveniently balance the NNPC.

          • tundemash

            Share Dunce, Ii to go by your argument , Denziani didn’t have a Minister of State (I still need to check that out as u are a habitual liar), how come other Ministries had ? Could it be a plan to loot the Ministry between Denziani and Dumbo Jo ?
            Even as Minister , was Denziani running NNPC day-by-day instead of the GMD ?

            The beauty about this is that the President gives no amn about teh wailing wailers and has continued to use the mandate Nigerians gave to him as he deemed fit without contravening any law.
            The man that was moved to Chair the board and ultimately benefits or disenfranchised isn’t wailing but bootlickers who benefits nothing are having sleepless nights. What a waste you and other ethnic bigots are !

            Could you enumerate here what you or Ijaw community at the creek benefited when Denziani was Minister of Petroleum ?

      • tundemash

        DUNCE FOREVER, was that not same post held by Denziani ?

    • soyo

      Senseless and irrationally sensational headline!

    • Rasaq Kasumu

      I wonder o. Misleading or miscast headline?

    • Julius

      You took that out of my mouth. He got promoted . Good for him. I’ve always thought he is a capable man that was doing his job.

      • John A

        To attend meetings 3 times a year ?
        His position is a non executive part time post. He has lost his voice.

        • Paul Young

          You are wrong. To me, going by the structure of other Huge multinational oil companies like saudi aramco, kachikwu has just been made a VERY BIG BOY. Yes you might be right he won’t be in charge of day to day running, but EVERY major decision will go through him, all the major deals will be signed by him. In fact this position gives him enough time to focus on courting investments and signing multi billion dollar deals. NNPC is about to go to the next level

          • John A

            I like your matured response, have a great evening.

          • tundemash

            Hopes that stops your ethnic ranting now that you have been lectured and stop taking weed !

          • John A

            Grow up, you are more of a weed taker than me, check all my post if you can find any insult or abusive language. By their fruit we shall know them. The so called south south has be marginalized for far too long by the ruling elite. 70% is from the north and you called that fair representation?
            you think we are still living in those years of divide and rule. welcome to the new world.

          • whales1212

            These guys are too dumb to understand something of common sense, they form an opinion and stick to it like blood sucking tick on a dog’s skin.

        • Profy

          D same position diezani occupy Dat made him steal billions of dollars

  • Sir Demo

    What a headline! Olorunyomi gave wailers food and in microseconds took it back.

  • GEJ FOREVER

    KACHIKWU HAS BECOME ANOTHER “CHIEF OF DEFENSE STAFF” FOR THE SOUTH

    By the way …. where is General Gabriel Olonishakin …..does he command any troops?

    Useless!!!!!!!

    • Julius

      hahahahahah, you just confirmed that you are a moron. Does an officer of his rant and position command a single unit troops or the whole army ? Oya, anser !!

    • PolyGon2013

      Yes, General Olonisakin commands the other Chiefs who command the troops. In effect, CDS commands all the troops.

    • Lanre

      Thank you. Just like Akinrinnade had to find his way under Shagari. Good point!

  • Olumide Ojo

    No Niger Delta or Ibo person on the board? These Presidency guys just keep looking for trouble

    • Powerlessconscious

      Welcome. We have been expecting you. The spirit of division and ethnicity.

    • whales1212

      You can see he doesn’t care whose ox is gored? The bombing increased by having kachukwu there, why not try another method. This man doesn’t care about that kind of sentiment you’re implying bruv.

    • Julius

      Who is the chairman and the Minister of petro ? Hint :A. Chairman-Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum

      • soyo

        U dey mind all these blind mumus and unrepentant ethnic night and enemies of prowess? They have eyes and brains, but can’t use them sensibly.

        • Julius

          Yes, you are right. I can see that now. These are the same people that will tell you they are biafraudians not a Nigerian. The question becomes , so, why da hell do you care who Buhari appoint to anything. ? You see their scam playing out daily online. This is why nobody trust them. Nonsense !

          • John A

            Chairman of NNPC is a non executive part time post, they do attend meeting 2 or 3 times in a year, so the man has been technically removed.

          • Sean

            And what Infact entitles him to be Minister and Group MD?Oh he’s Niger Deltan?

          • Julius

            You are a lazy liar. Post his duties under Buhari. Hurry up !

          • John A

            So your comment without insult will not be complete? if i am wrong the best way is to correct me rather than insult mister know all. In a civilized world all tribe works together to make her great, but Nigeria is along ethnic or tribal line and you expect magical development, Nigeria as a country can’t make head move with this tribal and ethnic mentality.

          • Julius

            There is nothing ethnic , tribal about being a lazy liar. It simply means you were lying. I agree we must work together to make the country great but, we must also tell the truth.

          • John A

            Is there any truth in 70% to 30% representation in a country such as Nigeria?

          • Julius

            70-30% of what ? I believe there is aFederal character or what not.

          • whales1212

            Hahaha, lol

          • Julius

            lolz, u dey craze !!. No be true I talk ? Abi.

          • Mufu Ola

            Good point u made there but u’re part of d ethnic problem.Tribalising all issues.That new NNPC MD I’m very sure is not Hausa or Fulani that u hate so much.He’s from North but not Hausa.There are over 800 tribes in North.Possibly more than 1000.Hausas are minority if all these are joined together.And many don’t even speak or understand the language.But many of us sit down lazily in the South & say “oh all of them are Hausa”

          • Eluba Inas

            If that is the case, then why worry about the board?

          • whales1212

            No,they don’t want a board. He should take decisions all alone without oversight.

          • Julius

            And the Minister of the petroleum too ?

          • tundemash

            is this not same position Denziani held Mr. ethnic bigot ?

          • Mufu Ola

            Did that disturb your own biz? Is Kachikwu complaining?

          • John A

            Yes, because the so called south south which you think are fools want none of this madness. Can you take 70% of SS to represent any establishment in the north or the SW?

    • Rasaq Kasumu

      They don’t need it. How can you trust people who claimed they are not Nigeria or keep bombing pipelines. Their exclusion will give them time to plan to keep bombing or find their ways out Nigeria

      • John A

        Are they appointed to run the NNPC from the northern oil well or from the enemies oil well?
        Please put on your reasoning cap and go through your comment before posting

    • Olu from South Africa

      Are there Nigerians on the board? Rise above the black hole of ethnicity. If newly formed board will be the one to take Nigeria to the promise land, why not?

      • John A

        And they should all come from the north, please remove the plank from your eye before asking others

        • tundemash

          Al come from the north … did u read the names at all ?

          • John A

            What is the difference? when only one section have 70% and the others 30%,

          • tundemash

            Do you need to lie to put a point across ? Why don’t u says it was 7)% to 30% instead of claiming all came from the north ? It is called propaganda and quite shameful when u are caught in a cheap lie.

          • John A

            What difference does it make?

          • tundemash

            Yeah right! U have been indoctrinated that with 6>19 PDPigs way !

  • Julius

    lolz. He will never get close to there. Maybe when he gets to biafraud.

  • iyangba

    The current problem with the Nigerian oil industry not about its leadership. Rather it is about the intermittent interrupt of oil production and transportation due to the activities of the Niger Delta militants. Buhari should focus on determining an oil revenue sharing formula that is pleasing to the delta area people. If he only bribes the Avengers, that will only be short term solution, and another militant group will soon rise up to get their own share.

  • UOU

    That is if they see the oil to manage

    • okenwa

      I don talkam sef. Maybe they don find one for lake chad.

  • St

    All the religious misunderstanding- he’s still the minister of petroleum and he’s still the chairman. Only the post of GMD was given to another Nigerian. PMB only went ahead with the constitution and implemented the corporation to be Controlled by a board. We need communication in Pidgin English in this country, so we can understand each other better.

  • Say the truth

    Why will anybody ever take Buhari serious? He just said that he will be fair to every part of the nation. He also said that the Niger delta elders that visited him should appeal to their people to be patient with him. He says one thing and does another. Why will you constitute a board and made people that are contributing nothing the overseers while you sideline the people from the geopolitical zone the resource is coming from. How fair is that? How will anybody be able to convince the militants and the avengers that Buhari’s government means well. Kachikwu has become a target of the northern oligarchy just because he is seen to be sympathetic to the course of the people which could have resulted in lasting peace. But the military mentality in Buhari and his advisers like Rotimi Amaechi and El Rufai will never allow him to see reason. All those who have been defending Buhari can now see that the northern agenda that people shouted about before the election was not a false alarm. I am completely disgusted with these whole mess of a President.

        Buhari is in fact a god-send for the secessionist narrative, his actions do fit into the narrative like gloves . Buhari is the greatest asset for those want to attain self determination objectives, his actions attract world sympathy and pushes these ideologies into the mainstream .

        I do not really want anything to be done about Buhari’s northernization and Islamization project, it will pay me more that he continues in that line of action.

  • New Nigerian

    I read lots of the posts here and I was not surprised. Premium Times choose a poorly worded headline. Ibe is now elevated to truly executive class, as he has passed his trial period of the Chief Operations Officer of the Nigerian Oil Industry in flying colors. He is the Minister of State and Chaiman of the Board of the NNPC – does not get more executive than that. Now he can focus on big ticket items as opposed to day-to-day operational hassles. Ofcourse, this is over the head of the faux-ethnic jingoists (It’s really about them and they could care less of any ethnicity really) every cry is against them, because there intention is bad and their heart is corrupt. This is a good move for Nigeria and to Ibe and NNPC handlers I say congratulations for elevated calls to service – continue to give it your all and Nigerians would be truly thankful. God Bless.

    • Duvwarovwo Efe

      i like your attempts to analyze the position of the new chairman ”truly executive class”… but i am sorry to say that Nigerians are wiser and much more aware now. So your position is too shallow. Premium times did nothing wrong in the headlines, they report as it is, they are not Channels that will give the presidency perspective and playdown the GMD NNPC position.

    Which is which?
    Are you Biafraud or Nigerians?
    Biko, make up your mind and very fast too. All these notice me noise making is of no value.
    If Kachikkwu is not satisfied with his new position, then mount pressure on him to resign. I am sure there are thousands if not millions from his village that are ready to take up his post.

  • Chukwuka Okoroafor

    I would think that Kachikwu was being promoted as he is head of the board. He is now behind the scenes but a much more powerful figure than ever before at the NNPC. I would think people would be happy about that at least since many are regionalised in their reasoning (and perhaps for good reason as there is also a Sharia agenda in the background).

  • vagabonds in power

    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has told President Mohammadu Buhari to return the N1.5 billion the State money donated to fund his election by former governor of the State, Dr Kayode Fayemi.

    The party said “equity and justice demand that Buhari should return what he got from Ekiti State treasury through Fayemi, if he is running after those who allegedly got money from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).”

    State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Jackson Adebayo said in a release issued in Ado-Ekiti on Monday that the N1.5 billion, if returned will go a long way in cushioning the effects of the dwindling economic fortune of the State, especially payment of workers salary.

    Fayemi, who is now Buhari’s Minister of Solid Minerals reportedly transferred N1.5 billion from his account in a bank located along Liberation Square, Accra, Ghana to the APC Presidential Campaign Fund account “in other to place him in a vantage position for ministerial appointment should Buhari win the February 14 Presidential election,” and true to his expectation, he was appointed minister.

    “N1.5 billion is a lot of money and Ekiti State government will only need to add some millions to be able to pay one month salary if Buhari returns the money.

    “The APC government of Fayemi left office with August and September 2014 salaries of workers unpaid but the same Fayemi could donate N1.5bn to Buhari’s campaign just because he wanted to be minister. Where then is the morality in Buhari’s anti-corruption posture when he was funded with stolen fund?

    • Ade Omowest

      “Mr”. vagabonds (alias Deri Orbuka and IZON Redeemer). Tell your friend, the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Jackson Adebayo to advice Ayodele Fayose to take former Governor Kayode Fayemi to a criminal court of justice in Ekiti State and present all the evidence for the court to jail Fayemi as the Minister has no immunity.

      • Gaskiya

        Why should Fayemi be taken to creiminal court when PDP members are haunted by EFCC?

        • Ade Omowest

          Since the PDP members are crying of persecution here and there. I want the indicted Ayo Fayose as the Governor of Ekiti State to take his predecessor to court if he has all the evidence to jail him instead of shouting and using all these jobless idiots to destroy the character of Dr. Fayemi. I know Fayose has no evidence or ‘balls’ to sue him.

    • ” transferred N1.5 billion from his account in a bank located along
      Liberation Square, Accra, Ghana to the APC Presidential Campaign Fund
      account” …….bank in Ghana transfer Naira instead of Cedis….. hmmm

      Seriously, Ekiti government could approach the court if they have evidence.

    Buhari Recalls Retired Perm Secs, Directors from North, Shortlists Southern Senior Civil Servants For Sack

    In tandem with what is perceived to be President Mohammadu Buhari’s chronic cronyism, the President has secretly ordered a recall of a large chunk of retired permanent secretaries and directors in the federal civil service from the core north and promoted those who serialy failed the civil service exams. Buhari had made no pretense concerning the section he favored for key, juicy appointments. Aside from the ministerial appointments which spread is guaranteed by the constitution, Buhari has told all who cared, he is comfortable with those from his section of the country.
    All his key staff at the Villa, SGF, Defence chiefs, are from the north. And recently no fewer than 20 very senior police officers had to be retired to give way for the new Fulani oriented Police boss. Presently, the Buhari led federal government has embarked on a secret, massive recruitment of candidates from the North who have diploma certificates (ND) and National Certificate of Education (NCE) to occupy the position of degree holders in ministries and parastatals leaving out thousands of most qualified candidates from other parts of the country.President Buhari penultimate week suspended the eight-year tenure for top civil servants in the public service paving the way for a mass return of retired northern civil servants.

    Why all the brouhaha about Dr. Ibe Kachikwu’s position? The gentleman is both a Niger Deltan and a proper Igbo man from Anioma zone of Delta State and now the new Chairman NNPC board. Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu still retains his position as the Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum. The new NNPC GMD Maikanti Kacalla Baru will now take instructions from him on government policies while Dr. Ibe Kachikwu has been freed from the day to day running of NNPC as the real Minister in charge. All these sentimental sectional readings should be discarded.

    Allah wubade. The rooster has come back to roost. Saudi Arabia is the godfather of Nigerian Sunni Islamism, the grandfather of world terrorism. A suicide bomber has killed four security officers and injured five others near one of Islam’s holiest sites in the Saudi city of Medina, according to the interior ministry. The bomber detonated his explosives after being stopped outside the Prophet’s Mosque, a statement said.The mosque is the burial place of the Prophet Muhammad and Medina the second-holiest city in Islam after Mecca. Blasts also struck two other Saudi cities on Monday. That the attack happened in Medina at such a place is likely to leave Muslims around the world aghast, BBC World Service’s Middle East editor, Alan Johnston, says. Suspicion is likely to fall on so-called Islamic State (IS), he adds.

      Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi studied Islamic Studies in Khartoum Sudan and rose to become MD First Bank before becoming CBN governor… Sanni Abacha rose from the Ranks and Files to become a General and later a head of state… Can you show me anyone from the south who has broken such feats? The Northerners are smarter than the rest of Nigeria put together……Abeg leave me jare!!!

  • Ochon

    If the president of a nation can be this bigoted then I think Nigeria is doomed. Any sane mine will know that buhari is setting a bad precedence for this country. For those who never see any wrong in the appointments made by this buhari guy should examine his conscience and sanity level.

  • Mohd Sageer

    Jobless tribal wailers at it again…. Go on find tribal link to everything PMB did. U think everybody is a narrow minded person like u…. Hahahaha…. So northerners are not Nigerians and can not be given any appointment without u tribal bigots complaining. I wonder which kind of country we are in when minority southerners think it is their birthrights to hold all government offices

    • Verified Nobel

      Shut your mouth. I have never supported wailers, but what do you expect people to see when bigotry is all that stares back at one from the list? Northerners have suddenly become the only people in Nigeria that are capable or trustworthy enough to handle positions in the last one year. You are the bigot here Mr.

    • emmanuel

      The Western World have resolved to finally ignored Nigeria so we can end the contraption. Have you observed that they have all kept quiet on the Avengers issues?

      • Okon Bassey

        They can’t talk because they know they are part of the problem. Avengers is exposing all of them. We thank God for Avengers because they are not sell outs who want to fill their pockets but true freedom and justice fighters who want a separate state. All the Western nations are saying in secret to Buhari is that he should “negotiate”, that means they are directly encouraging CORRUPTION. bcos to “negotiate” means to bribe a few agitators and allow oil to flow so that their Exxon mobil (US), Chevron(US), Shell (UK), etc can continue to make more monies why the Niger Delta people can’t get clean water to drink. Thank God for Avengers who have refused to “negotiate”. I am ready to fight and die. I need my own separate country – Niger Delta Republic.

        • Senator D

          Good talk bro…

      I. THE BOARD OF NNPC
      A. Petroleum Minister, Muhammadu Buhari……………………………..North

      NOTES:
      (1) Dr. (Mrs.) Shu’ara (the only female among 12 men!) was to retire on Feb 17, 2016 when she turned 60, but in an unprecedented disregard for Civil Service rules, PMB ordered her tenure to be extended by one year.
      (2) Both Dr. Ibe Kachikwu and Dr. Thomas John are close associates of General Yakubu Danjuma.
      (3) Ibe Kachikwu is SS not SE. The SE that produces oil has 0 representation among the 12. The North that produces no drop of oil has 9 out of 12.

  • emmanuel

    i said this will happen exactly five months ago.
    Avengers, it is upto you. Play your role well and God ve with you. Skye Bank Northernised already. were are the most timid people in Nigeria – the Yorobbers?
    One thing i know too well, is that Crude price will never rebound in the next five years for very obvious reasons, so the earlier the Avengers take Crude in Nigeria to zero, the better, because Buhari intent is to pull down the house. It is therefore good for those who wish to help him achieve it to step up their games.
    Very soon, Buhari will remove Adeboye and replace him with an Foolani Pastor. Nigeria constitution has been suspended!

  • emmanuel

    Soyemi, i am sure you are a bast**d Yorobber or you are just exhibiting timidity. Abacha was not this bad and let me tell you, Buhari has effectively restructured Nigeria and handed it to the Foolanis. It is only blood that can reverse what he has done. This is not about what Biafra war did to Nigeria – study recent history of the Tutsis and Hutus in Central Africa and you would know that freedom most times comes with sacrifice
    If you say quota system has been suspended, let us know. Education, employment etc must now be through competitive selection; but no.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      May your head be the first to roll in swines’ blood in that case. Amen.

      • emmanuel

        What is blood? Mile12, Agatu, Enugu state, Delta, Ekiti etc are part of the flow of blood.
        They retreated the day Fayose drew the battle line and other South Governors followed suit. But Tinubu and co have decided to dance naked with the foolanis to intimidate Fayose who suceeded in chasing the herdsmen into a retreat.
        Those who ran into exile during Abacha holocaust were first his friends, Ministers and cronies. And that is almost commencing.
        I visited Lagos today and right in my presence, a man dropped dead; of course resulting from hardship – I wish the very confused Yorobbers goodluck in your day dream of Buhari dieing so you can takeover.

  • Senator D

    Baba carry goooo… Northernise the whole country who cares….

    • Fuzio

      Are you for real?

      • Senator D

  • Senator D

    By 2019 we will spend 4-years probing APC’s campaign funds. We will increase fuel to 300-per liter… We will arrest anyone that complains or raises eyebrow with EFCC and then judge them on the pages of Newspapers and if they talk we will send them to jail and give them 1.2-billion-naira bail bond using the courts…APC has taught Nigerians what we don’t know how to do it well.

    • okpada

      You have not read through the CV of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. He graduated from Ahmadu Bello university for his bachelor degree. He had a master in Harvard university. He had worked with America finance company in NY before joining first bank in Nigeria. He was already a DMD in First bank before going to Sudan to do Islamic studies because he had eyes on this throne of kano. He wanted to know what is wrong with the Islamic religion vis a vis terrorism. So Sanusi could not have become MD of Firstbank Nigeria with a certificate in Islamic studies. Check your full fact before submissions.

      • Guest

        A typical igbo man is full hate and bigotry , hence he did not believe that Sanusi a Hausa man is capable of acquiring a professional qualification.

      • Senator D

        This quote which is contained in the hand over notes Lord Luggard wrote to his colleague, Walter H Lang on the 25th of September 1918. The quote reads interalai:

        ”The Hausa-Fulani has no ideals, no ambitions save such as sensual in character. He is a fatalist, spendthrift and a gambler. He is gravely immoral and is seriously diseased that he is a menace to any community to which he seeks to attach himself”

        Was Luggard right? Is this not the reason there have been crisis every where the Hausa-fulani are found?

    • Ochon

      They are not smart my brother other region allowed them out of cowardliness and for this pseudo one Nigeria thing to continue. The level the Hausa man can go just to get power no sane human being can do that. Have u askef yourself why boko haram became so powerful after the demise of yaradua? All this APC thing will stop immediately if what happened to yaradua reoccur and if army did not take over as arranged by buhari already, then a more vicious terror group will emerge.

    • Guest

      Igbo man says malam no sense , but it is obvious now that Na Igbo man no sense.
      I remember when some smart igbos were advising their power drunk Igbo brothers not to deny the zoning arrangement of the PDP they refuse to listen them and regard them as fools . When will the Igbo people deal with the bad eggs among them? These igbos showing hatred for other Nigerians are the real enemies of igbos .

      • Fuzio

        Point me to where the Igbo man made such a ‘saying’.
        Igboland is a bottom up society. Ideas and policies are hatched at the bottom and those ideas will bubble upwards to the top. The current agitation by ordinary people in Igboland for Biafra is a case in point. The elite are not involved but very soon they will get the message that this is the direction the the Igbos want to go.
        Recall that role Aba women’s ‘riot’ played in securing independence for Nigeria. Indirect rule worked everywhere in Nigeria except in Igboland. We hate top-down political systems.
        As for Igbos hating other Igbos, that is a myth. Can you compare it to what happens in the North or Yorubaland? In the North, despite the fact that they dominated the military, they were carrying out coups and counter coups against themselves and killing themselves in the process. Or Yorubaland where they see any political disagreement as an act of war and opportunity to shed blood. In Igboland we never kill our selves because of political disputes.

    • Northern region

      My brother, one thing I can assure you is the Muslim concept of one God combined with Islamic and western education and civilizations give us unmatched advantage. You may take this as a subject for research and analysis.

  • Fuzio

    All the Southern politicians have been compromised by corruption. That is why all of them are keeping quiet in the face of this hurricane called Buhari that is ravaging the whole country. It is now left to the ordinary man on the street to resist this ancient Northern jihadist who is bent on tilting Nigeria in favor of the North forever.

    • Senator D

      Nobody compromised anyone bro… They are too shocked to speak! It is not what they agreed on during the pact in 2011/2014… Buhari is shocking everyone including APC stalwarts… The hope is in 2019 they will fight back but PMB has more shockers coming. Amaechi will be thrown out and arrested. Tinubu will be humiliated and then Atiku will be subjugated if not… Just wait for the shocker coming bro… Just wait…

      • Fuzio

        What else do you want me to say bro? No one is speaking out in the face of this obvious affront to common sense by this president. Are they all under a powerful spell? If not for the youths on the streets this president would continue to implement his disastrous and anti-South agenda quietly.

      • Etomi

        Nothing dey happen…..

        Buhari need those guys all the time….they are politicians they do not care about the lot of their part of the country,,,what matters to them is their pocket…..

        Yet, under Buhari Nigeria would divide…..the F00L is taking everybody for granted!

        • Fuzio

          I agree with you. Buhari too, is a politician and survival is the most important thing on the mind of any politician. I cannot imagine any scenario under which he, the president can throw Amaechi, who looted Rivers resources to finance the presidents election under the bus.

  • Senator D

    You guys ain’t seen nothing yet… Amaechi, Tinubu and Atiku are in for the rudest shock of their lives… Just wait and see… Buhari’s 2019 Agenda is unfolding gradually… I just dey laugh… Even Amaechi is knows himself that Baba is planning to set him up and use him as a scapegoat to prove that the so-called anti-corruption war is for real… Baba knows what he is doing…

        Let me help those who seem ignorant of history or decide to bury their heads in the sand.

        The GMDs of NNPC under Yar’Adua /Jonathan governments were the following

        I. The 3 GMDs appointed by Yar’Adua

        1. Abubakar Yar’Adua 2007-2009 (President Yar’Adua’s relative)
        2. Muhammed Barkindo 2009-2010 (a prince from Yola; now SG of OPEC),
        3. Shenu Ladan 2010-2010 (Alhaji Ladan was unwell and died of cancer on October, 4, 2011)

        The 3 GMDs appointed by Jonathan:

        4. Adeiza Oniwon 2010-2012 (Oniwon is Kogi; North Central)
        5. Thlama Dawha 2012-2014 (from Kaduna State)
        6. Laah Yakubu 2014-2015 (from Borno State)

        Therefore, UMY appointed 3 GMDs; GEJ appointed 3 GMDs, but he inherited one from UMY. All of the appointees were from the North.

        It is also interesting to note that no one from the SE has ever been the GMD of NNPC. The irony is that the SE produces oil; the North produces no drop of oil!

        • Senator D

          In 1957, during the heated battles for self government and independence, Sir Ahmadu Bello referred to Nigeria as “The mistake of 1914.” To correct this “mistake” a meticulous plan to dominate the future Nigerian Armed Forces was surreptitiously embarked upon while the British was helping out on the political front manufacturing Parliamentary seats for the North against the South of Nigeria. Thus, barely six months after independence, Sir Ahmadu Bello was able to say with confidence in the Daily Times of May 3, 1961, the following:

          “I’m set and fully armed, to conquer the Action Group, AG, in the same ruthless manner as my grandfather conquered Alkalawa, a town in Sokoto province, during the last century.”

    NIGERIAN PEOPLE’S PARLIAMENT

    WHY APC IS STRONGER THAN PDP. .

    1. It took PDP 16 years to make a dollar = N197,

    but it took APC just 1 year to make a dollar

    N350.

    2 It took PDP 16 years to destroy Nigeria, but it

    took APC just 1 year to massacre, dismantle, kill

    and bury Nigeria. …

    3. It took PDP 16 years to make fuel price N87/litre, kerosene

    at N100/litre and diesel at N115/litre.

    But it took APC 1 year to make petrol N145/litre, kerosene at

    N210/litre and diesel at N300/litre.

    4. It took PDP 16 years to make Nigeria corrupt,

    but it took APC just 1 year to make Nigeria

    Fantastically corrupt.

    5)It took PDP 16 years to keep the price of rice at

    N7,000 per bag, but took APC 1 year to project it

    to N18,000 per bag.

    6) It took Jonathan 5yrs to travel to 15 countries,

    but it took Buhari 1 year to travel to 30 countries.

    7)It took PDP 16years to apply resounding

    economic policies that made banks grow, but

    took APC 1 year to apply policies which they beg

    banks not to sack more staff.

    CONCLUSIVELY; I am beginning to think that

    while PDP is better in administration, APC is

    better in opposition, that’s why APC is still

    campaigning, blaming, promising and playing

    opposition party despite being the Ruling party

    after one year.

    Anybody to quote me wrong???

    • emmanuel

      only lame ducks would do!

        The prophecy has gone forth that Buhari is the Rehoboam of Nigeria…keep watching…

    • Curseless

      That analogy is flawed totally. You are comparing a demolition derby perpetrated by PDP over 16 years of abundance with Buhari’s one year with empty treasury. Try and plant corns in the raining season, have a bountiful harvest but eat everything at sight without storing for dry season. There is nothing that Buhari inherited that was standing, how he will cause things to look up in this economic drought is another topic entirely, but basing your argument on one year is unsustainable. How long have Nigerians been waiting for electricity, road networks, jobs for the youth (e.t.c) without luck, but promises by every buffoon that have governed the country. Buhari may end up in that league if after 4-8 years there is nothing to show for.

  • Fuzio

    Kachikwu should do the honorable thing and resign just like Ms Ngozi Iweala did when Obasanjo, fearing that she might be in his way of commandeering state resources for his re-election, moved her to a less consequential post.

  • Excisionist

    The Niger Delta Freedom Fighters are not murdering unarmed civilians, destroying mosques (BH destroyed churches) and places of worship bombing markets or schools, abducting innocent women and children raping and maiming, razing towns and villages etc… All these and more are what Islamic terrorists from the north are doing.

    These people are asking for a fair share of what belongs to them which is currently being looted by Sunni Muslim oligarchs, scavengers and sponsors or Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen terrorists. These ungodly hypocrites who use terrorism to threaten Nigerians so that they can intensify the plunder and loots need to be punished. When Buhari came to power, the first thing he did was to remove all the people from the oil producing areas and replace them with filthy, greedy uncircumcised, unqualified Mohammedans who treat the rest of Nigeria as conquered territory. They need to be strangled economically and one simple way of doing it is to deny them the control of the oil industry and wealth from it.

    No more flow of crude to Kaduna. It is a very expensive venture to transport and refine oil there. It was a political decision wich sucks more money hat it generates. It is not economically viable. Let the pipes and tankers be blown up.

    Not only that, they should be denied the possession of oil wells and oil blocks. Those of them who are addicted to oil when captured should be forced to drink crude oil until they get a full stomach. Moreover those appointed into oil industry (like the latest) should be regarded as economic saboteurs and therefore become targets. Wicked and minless actions demand drastic counter measures.

    To the security forces
    The members of the security forces (Army, Police DSS, SSS) from the SS, SE, SW and North Central should understand that these people are fighting to protect their interest, to protect them and their loved ones from terrorists and murderers currently invading and plundering their resources. So, do not obey orders to kill your people and strenghten the hands of their oppressors. Dont forget the legitimate struggle started by Major Gideon Okar and Co to excise the oppressors from Nigeria and free the oppressed

    The only way to deal with Mohammedan oppressors is to confront them. Niger Delta Freedom Fighters, I salute you.

In Cameroon, Ghana, Mali, Togo and Niger, frequent clashes between nomadic Fulani and land owners constitute a major security problem for national and regional governments. In the Chad basin, clashes between Fulani and Shua Arabs have led to thousands of deaths, reliable sources claim. Many of the clashes were between indigenous communities and Fulani herdsmen accused of trespassing on native lands and in many cases, attempting to take over the lands by force of arms….”

    This quote which is contained in the hand over notes Lord Luggard wrote to his colleague, Walter H Lang on the 25th of September 1918. The quote reads interalai:

    ”The Hausa-Fulani has no ideals, no ambitions save such as sensual in character. He is a fatalist, spendthrift and a gambler. He is gravely immoral and is seriously diseased that he is a menace to any community to which he seeks to attach himself”

    Was Luggard right? Is this not the reason there have been crisis every where the Hausa-fulani has tried to attach themselves like Jos, rampaging Fulani herdsmen in the East etc? What is the way forward?

    Kay Soyemi are you still shamelessly supporting this absurdity in the polity?

    I monitored all your comments in the pre-election period.

    Let me tell you : a journalist recently on Premium Times describe your case and similar persons’ as : Post Decision Cognitive Dissonance.

    You and your likes are trying hard to justify the misplaced support you gave Buhari in the election season.

    If you need mental liberation, please get objective.

    Buhari was a foretold disaster waiting to happen. The Greek gift of Daura is gradually being unveiled to unsuspecting Nigerians.

    The excuse of low oil revenue and ruse called anti-corruption have already had their days.

    The CBN has already declared Nigeria officially in a recession.

    How about the appointments? What has Tinubu really benefited huh?

    So remain entertained by ‘Emperor Nero’ as the empire collapses.

    I guess you claimed you were in the UK or so… Well, I also ran out of the country before ‘Pharoah’ was installed.

    Let us watch Nigeria from a distance for now…

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Thank you for your concern, Sir.

      If YOU “ran out of the country”, I can only presume you are yam-eating goat who is scared about being degoatified.

        Thanks. Your reply is apt in my description of you and your kind.

        Keep it up…
