    Where did he get money to build this house on a hill top? May the good Lord, please send a very strong wind to blow off the roof of all houses on hill tops owned by politicians and past thieves who stole the resources of the people of the East & South.Send the wind to blow the houses into the deepest part of the ocean floor.

    OBJ really means business and it looks like a fight to finish!

    From the moment King Nebucadnezar began assuming and arrogating God’s place in history and authority to himself his fall became evidently imminent. Pride goes before a fall. OBJ is the god some Nigerians now worship. In this year, God will exterminate all those (men/women), who by their action and word made themselves assumably above God. God’s silence is no Mark of weakness. “The fools says in his heart that their is no God”. The wise will always say: “Father, Thy will be done”.

      Hater,what do you gain in wishing an old man dead,God is not a man and cannot be mocked.

    Look at his face, an old man telling fat lies! Which Secretary of Military Board has your certificate?
    Has the Secretary not come out to say the Army does not keep anybody’s academic certificates?
    So, what nonsense are you talking about? INEC is asking you for your school certificate, show it.
    INEC is not asking you for certificates of military drills or artillery courses attended in the army.

      Are you waking from sleep? The issue is about women visiting Obasanjo!

  • Jimoh

    As human we are bound to err a time or the other. And we all knows this about each other. But when you err and refused you do -arrogance, every one stay away from you, if however you accept you do -humble, there is a flock back to you. We all may agreed that Obasanjo has his days of wrong doings, to every ones knowledge was the third term bid with the attempt on constitutional change but backed down on pressure from Nigerians. Mark this with the arrogance & humbleness. This is exactly what is larking in Gej. Obasanjo has turned a new leaf, hence the flocks of people to his reasoning. He rightly assumed the roll of a true Elder Statesman not an Ethnic leader like Edwin Clark. Period.
