We must rid Nigeria of corruption – Tinubu

SUN NEWSPAPER MAN OF THE YEAR, ASIWAJU BOLA TINUBU (L) PRESENTING SUN NEWSPAPER PUBLIC SERVICE AWARD TO THE DIRECTOR GENERAL, NATIONAL PENSIONS COMMISSION, MRS CHINELO ANOHU–AMAZU, AT THE 13TH ANNUAL AWRADS OF THE NEWSPAPER IN LAGOS ON SATURDAY NIGHT. WITH THEM IS THE FORMER MINISTER OF WOMEN AFFAIRS, CHIEF JOSEPHINE ANENIH. 1057/21/2/2016/BOA/CH/NAN

A national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has urged Nigerians to join hands to build a better country.

Mr. Tinubu spoke Saturday while receiving an award as The Sun Newspapers Man of the Year in Lagos.

‎”We have come to a point where there is no turning back for there is nothing worthy of the sacrifices so recently made to turn back to,” said Mr. Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State.

“We have reached the juncture at which we must reform our institutions, rid our country of corruption or admit that we have mortgaged away the good future due us.

“The infrastructural decay of past decades, the unemployment time bomb, the challenging security situation make a compelling case for us all to join with this government to embrace a new politics that will help build a new country.

Mr. Tinubu said he felt honoured to be chosen for the award, adding that the decision to pick him was arrived after a rigorous process.

“I am humble enough to know that the Sun could have chosen any one of several figures,” he said.

“Their decision would not have been gainsaid. I think particularly of the man at the helm of affairs and who won the election, President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Yet, I am mindful enough to realize such awards do not come frequently and that I better grab the good thing given me.”

The former Lagos State governor thanked The Sun newspapers for recognizing his “modest efforts’ at transforming the country.

“What was accomplished in 2015 was not a singular effort. It was done through the collective love and labour of millions of Nigerians. A handful of them were well known.

“Most of them are hardworking anonymous people who together constitute the backbone and great strength of this nation. It was this collective effort that produced the unprecedented electoral victory in 2015.

“Therefore, I accept this award on behalf of all the people who contributed to opening a vitally new chapter in the book of our national history. Many sacrificed greatly to achieve this great turn of events. Some practically surrendered their businesses.

“Some provided funds. Especially that elderly 90-year old woman, Hajia Fadimatu Mai Talle Tara who donated 1 million Naira, her life savings for the campaign of President Muhammadu Buhari . (May Her Soul Rest in Peace).

“Others worked ceaselessly, hour after hour, day after day until the historic job was done. Many hit the campaign trail day and night from Katsina to Lagos. I reserve a special recognition and commendation for the youth across this nation who formed part of the foot soldiers in the struggle for change. It is to these heroes that I dedicate this award.”

Mr. Tinubu urged The Sun and other media organizations to employ journalism as a tool for development.

“Journalism must become a force for good and a voice against injustice, poverty and discrimination,” he said.

“It must always speak right to might. You must be objective. You must not be a partner to power or to those who have lost power. Your role is that of guardian and herald of the truth for the people themselves.

“Do that and you will shine in a way that will make the name of this newspaper more than apt. The media will stand the best of time and with other patriots work to make Nigeria great again.”

  • Kickboxer

    …LOL…..it’s interesting to watch…….MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD fighting corruption……a born criminal like Thiefnubu who has stolen taxpayers money in Lagos talking about corruption…..it is like brainless Buhari who stole $2.8 billion in 1978 and PTF funds in 1998 “fighting” corruption…….Haaaaa….I hop youths are not reading and attend events organized by this CRIMINALS

    only “southern Yariba almajiris” and “technically intelligentsia” minions and apc e-rats would stand and here this CORRUPT THIEFNUBU & BRAINLESS BUHARI talk about ‘fighting’ corruption…..when I see criminals like THIEFNUBU talk about “figting” corruption I wonder why we killed ONYENUSI when the real CRIMINALS RESIDE in LAGOS…….& DAURA

    • Jay

      You can now drop that phone and run back to Uselu where you escaped from.

      • Kickboxer

        rejoice, jump into the lagoon because you are now paid N5000 of your stolen money….so much about brain power….mssshh

    • Diane Hale

      Animal like you. When did you escape from ur onufia village?

      • Kickboxer

        hmmm….go collect your N5000……that is your price…..son of two mumus

    • Spoken word

      Abeg go back to your village and continue screwing chickens.

      • Kickboxer

        it looks that APC has began to pay the monthly N5000 for e-rats….

        • Spoken word

          I know you will be the first on the queue.poor soul.

  • Adele Uhuru

    This emphasizes how skewed this campaign against corruption really is- when you have those that embody corrupt practices speaking on fighting corruption reflects how corrupt the campaign against corruption is quite really

  • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

    Hahaha…Just imagine El Chapo Guzmán telling Mexicans, we must rid Mexico of crime…

    • ijelejames

      Lol!!!!!!!!!

    • Höly Wähala

      “…telling Mexicans we must rid Mexicao of drugs” is how I would put it. Vagabond Tinubu made his wife Senator, his ugly daughter a member of the House of Reps; his son-in-law a member of Lagos House of Assembly, another daughter the Iyaloja of Lagos markets… and his company collects all taxes for Lagos State for a huge percentage of the haul. No wonder the ugly addict is rumored to be worth over $8bn which is believable. Corruption is not just embezzlement, it is cronyism, nepotism, tribalism and self-enrchment at the expense of the masses. Bola Tinubu is a very corrupt man and a drug addict, a common tout. Imagine, ISIS calling for gun control in the Middle East.

      • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

        You’re spot on bro…it may have escaped his attention by not realising he’s utterly corrupt when he was making that comment…there is nothing ridiculous about the most hypocritical man who knows that he has the law on his side at the minute…

      • olu_kay

        hahahahahahahahahah….you exposed the hypocrisy of thiefnubu.

      • Otile

        What is the difference between his appointment style with that of Imam Mohamed Buhari? Is there any sense of justice in the way Imam continues to appoint his Filanci tribesmen over ethnic groups? Don’t just condemn our Jagaban but exonerate your master Imam, both of them need to be condemned equally.

      • The truth will set you free

        LMAO @ ISIS calling for gun control

  • Maria

    For all animals calling Tinubu corrupt person, how come your master(GEJ) tried him but found nothing even as an opposition?

    • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

      Because he bribed the same judges you and other animals are now calling corrupt judges…

    • Ade

      I am anxiously waiting for probe of arms deal to complete so that EFCC should start NNPC probe especially let’s know who benefited from the subsidy scammed that was used to buy elections of 2011.

      Nigerian is getting interesting, may God guide Buhari to get rid of corruption in Nigeria and the corrupt hypocrites in APC

    • Höly Wähala

      Corruption is not just stealing money and losing court cases, it is Bola Tonubu making his wife a Senator representing Lagos, making his daughter the Iyaloja of Lagos market women’s association, making the husband of his daughter a member of the House of Reps representing Lagos as well as Tinubu’s daughter… beyond all that, a company Tinubu has controlling interest in collects taxes for Lagos State. That man is as corrupt and dirty as sin and there’s no way you can make sense defending a known corrupt politician. You may defend anyone but not Bola Tinubu… An Ape!

    • Kickboxer

      you’v done your job for the month….now go collect N5000 of our stolen money……so much about brain power…msssh

    • Otile

      Smelly cunt, you are not on the same level with the rest of the people. Smell away, bye.

  • If Tinubu, the Jagaban of corruption can campaign against corruption, then there is no hope for Nigeria.

    • Adeolu_Nigeria

      You are always wrong. The problem of Nigeria is unrepentant looters like your master Jonathan.

  • Kñîghtš Tëmpłær

    PT stop censoring my comments…

  • Naijalova

    The truth and nothing but the truth I pray we’ll all join hands together to build a vibrant nation
    God bless Nigeria

  • Ebubedike

    We must rid Nigeria of corruption, says Thiefnubu

  • Spoken word

    Is this clown for real.

  • ijelejames

    How can Mr Corruption himself be asking Nigeria to get rid of corruption. In that case, we have to get rid of Tinubu from every place of authority. Thanks for your wise advise so quickly get lost.

    • Debo

      If Tinubu that has never rule Nigeria is Mr. Corruption, what will you call your master Jonathan.

      • ijelejames

        Baba corruption!

  • Lawrence Agha

    As they say it in French ‘le ridicule ne tue pas’ That men like Mr Bola Tinubu, will go publc and speak against corruption is to insult the collective intelligence of his audience. Worse still, The Sun Newspaper just proved that their objectivity is now in doubt. The morality behind this award, even though it is carved with broken wood, is patronizing, to say the least.

  • Ish Adam

    Tinubu is a bad brand who must be rejected by all. No amount of money spent branding and packaging Tinubu as an incorruptible man will work . We know the truth about this rotten and corrupt product.

    • Jola

      David Mark, Anninih, Jonathan are good brand, right? by their fruits we shall know them.

  • T-Rex

    Is Tinubu also among the prophets?

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    Na waaooo ! Bobo Chicago Asiwaju ridding Nigeria off corruption is like Lucifer ridding Christians off sins……WONDERS WILL NEVER END !!

  • FormerNigerian

    Like an armed robber saying we must rid Nigeria of armed robbery. Funny.

  • tsunami1earthquake

    Shut up, Tinubu! Remember that those who live in glasshouses must never throw stones! Even Tinubu talking of fighting corruption. Wonders shall never end!

    • Dele

      Your comment is just based on hatred and lies. Tinubu was tried by Obasanjo regime and Jonathan regime and found not guilty of any fraud. It is only in Nigeria that one will be praising and publicly supporting people accused of fraudulent and criminal offense while condemning someone that have been tried by court of law and found not guilty (not that he is pardoned by government). If Tinubu want corruption to continue hindering Nigeria development, he wouldn’t have been part of machinery that brought about the change in Buhari.

      • ita ekpo

        How can thief man be tried under thief man regime. Do you know he suppose to face charge in Britain. Ask him sir can you have visa to go to Britain. If he is so good.

        • tunde008

          Forget UK ,he can visit USA

          • Otile

            Why forget UK, what is he afraid of there? Judge for yourself.

          • Julius

            lolz. Otile is the dumbest biafraudian you will ever see . Period !. He once said that the Federal government should be charged with ‘double jeopardy’ in the case of knau, though there was never a trial. LMaooooooooooo. That was so funny. He is simply a dumb ass.

          • Otile

            See how corrupt you are. your tribesman tunde008 commented “Forget UK ,he can visit USA”; knowing that Jagaban sneaks in and out of UK, I asked – why forget UK…? then you unleashed your dumb attack on me copying and pasting uncalled for URL for the world to read. I am not interested in your stupid_copying and pasting nonsense.

          • tundemash

            Shameless twat!

          • Otile

            Insolent one, why not respond with something reasonable? All you can come up with is your usual “Shameless twat!” Pathetic.

          • tundemash

            What will be reasonable to a career liar, disciple of the Ineffective Buffon ?

        • tundemash

          Oloshi , stop lying. Below is Tinubu in Uk .

        • Julius

          Yes, he has visa to visit the UK . He was in the UK not too long ago meeting with the politicians. He was with Buhari in the UK during the election as we. Try something else. You just failed miserably !

          • ita ekpo

            I can not argue with you. If that happen may be his case has been forgotten for the sake of buhari. Check his documentary to know his history . when he was governor of Lagos state what he did with tax money and what he has not done with Lagos money. Just type in what crime did tinubu commit when he was Lagos state governor. There you will know how this used Lagos money to enrich himself. Now those corrupt people are been number one citizen.

          • Julius

            ‘If that happen may be his case has been forgotten for the sake of buhari’ lolz. Be serious sir. Do you think uK justice system is like Nigeria justice system ? If that happened ?. Take care sir !

  • Peter_Edo

    That’s the Jagaban! More grease to your elbows

  • ita ekpo

    Why all this big thief like tinubu can call another person thief. They must first rid him with all stolen money he get away to become landlord of Lagos. All this thief, they do not have shame to come out. Instead of him and obasanjo to hide themself and stop throwing word on people. Only those bad egg will be the first to prove other is corrupted. Why tinubu not looking himself in the Mirrow well well.

    • King

      From where did he stole the money from?

      • Kickboxer

        From Lagos taxpayers and more than N1.2trillion that Lagos is currently owing abroad…..

        • Kay

          Rumor monger, bring out the proof. You better go back to Abia to probe into how your leaders dealt with your people.

          • Kickboxer

            which proof? Proof that he stole taxpayers money or that Lagos owes N1.2trillion? When Nigerians begin to fight corruption it would be easy to prove how much criminals like Thiefnubu earned in the last 30 years and crosscheck it against his properties, assets and those of his proxies.

            For now Thiefnubu and brainless Buhari have Apc e-rats like you in the juggler…..so wait for your own N5000…..I hope they pay that to poor minds like you, money/change from your stolen money

          • Kay

            Keep your mouth shot until you have your fact. It is very glaring that you are just an hypocrite that hates what God is doing through Buhari to revive Nigeria. You have every reason to be angry; No more free money from the looting spree of Jonathan regime. Go and look for job. Sorry!

          • Kickboxer

            fact? haaa…..brainless Buhari can’t revive Nigeria…..son of two mumus….he has no such intellectual capabilities….even if you keep him there for 50 years…….look up north to see brainless Buhari’s capabilities……the best he could do is to recover money from perceived enemies and opponents….which is fine as far as he follows rule of law……..

            …..but to actually fight corruption Nigerians know how much everyone makes whether abroad or here….primary school kids can add whatever monthly salary multiplied by 30 or 20 years; then we find out if properties and assets are consistent with earnings………..keep waiting for “APC & Thiefnubu” facts…….

      • ita ekpo

        He stole Lagos money tax money plus when he was governor then. Checkh documentary by typing ex governor tinubu embezzlement in Lagos.

  • JomiJoke

    Hear! Hear!! The FACE of corruption, brigandage, pillaging, unbriddled greed himself speak!!! My own award for you is is Masters in Hoolaganism & PhD in Lootocracy. Until the long and steady arm of law catches up and puts you out of circulation along with others like Babangida, Obasanjo, Atiku, Danjuma, Aninie, Odili,Orji Kalu, Akpabio, Uduaghan, (Un)Lucky Igbiniedon, Aregbesola, Amechi, and a host of other criminals parading themselves as founding fathers, true democrats, patriots, champions of the masses, I will remain skeptical and crictical of this war against corruption! Y’all can get awards, accolades, chieftaincy titles, have streets named after you, hire praise singers, image laundrers, nay sleazy lawyers and compromised judges to pervert the course of justice, to me and my household and countless of other households in Nigeria, you’re no heroes, nor are you champions of the poor and downtrodden, but bunch of depraved and mindless rogues. That’s the truth. Period!

    • Otile

      God bless you. The truth shines like light.

    • Ibukun Fadairo

      Bring out your proof against him.

  • tunde008

    The NADECO chieftain himself.The Jagaban of bourdillon,God bless you for fighting for democracy in Nigeria.Thank you for the change we are now enjoying.long live Tinubu.

      There is a Yoruba adage that is translated as, “He that is in prison, never know who is pleading for his release.” They who have known better in the hands of Babangidas, Abachas and others.

      May that change u r enjoying be everlasting in your family in Jesus name……AMEN!!!

  • Lanre

    Asiwaju Tinubu. This is the time for you to sit down and stop hugging the limelight. This is not the time for any useless award. Award for what? That you helped elect a man who has made 90% of his appointment from people of his own ethnic stock and religion? That you helped create a situation where the value of the Naira has eroded by over 100% since your party gained power? That many APC states are unable to pay the salaries of their workers? That your party is in charge of a government that cannot present a budget without inflated and dubious figures? That one of your minions – Lai Mohammed as Minister of Information cannot explain what the Balance of Trade means? That the prognosis for our society is dire? What are you celebrating? Chief Awolowo, the ultimate political leader of Yorubas will not be found at an event such as this. Rather he will be working to find ways to solve the problems of society as every genuine politician should. Ditto Alhaji Jakande. And then is that the wife of Chief Anenih, the man who conspired with Babangida to annul the elections of June 12, 1993 and killed the dream of Nigeria for many of us, permanently? What are you doing with such people? Is Anenih not the same person accused of sharing tax payers money (like armed robbers sharing loot) with his fellow shameless octogenerians – Yakassai, Falae and the other useless old men from that generation.
    Before I lump you with that useless political leadership, sit down, keep quiet and monitor your wards – Ambode, Amosun, Aregbesola, Ajimobi, Oshiomole and ensure that they can govern their states to deliver on their promises. Right now, it is almost like one step forward, three backwards. Those of us coming after you are watching your every action. Right now whatever success you recorded in Lagos and on which you are riding on is eroding fast.

      No place for ethnic chauvinists like you in Nigeria of today!

    • SAM .A

      PDPig, e rat and creek monkey , you are still brewing your poison over an election that u lost 8 months ago. I don’t pity u because this your poison will consume you, while Tinubu & PMB have already moved on , u are stuck with your foot in your mouth wailing and gnashing your teeth here daily like ‘egbere’.

  • Otile

    Jagaban is funny indeed, so he is one of those lecturing Nigeria about corruption. I dey lafu for Yoruba o, hohoho. Nigeria continues to get their lessons from bad sources. The country gets training in: beheading from Somalia, raping and sodomy from Janjaweed, religious fanaticism from Afghanistan, intolerance from the Islamic Republic of Iran, building dugout boats from Sri Lanka, indolence from Islamic Republic of Niger, aggression from Chad, and bloody islamization from Saudi Arabia.

    Why can’t sheepish Northern leaders learn engineering from Germany, medicine from USA, commerce from Great Britain, technology from Japan, and peaceful coexistence from Canada? Is Nigeria doomed for failure at the hands of sheepish Northern leaders?

    • Bola

      Your comments make no sense, it is just a hatter anger and frustration.

      • Kickboxer

        if he is angry then his brain cells are active…after all if you see a thief who stole your property & assets no right thinking person would embrace the thief…….only brain dead or cowardly individuum would prostrate and defend a thief or rapist….

      • emmanuel

        is Otile a hater? is Tinubu one that should castigate corrupt people where he belongs? Shame.
        If he hates hypocrites then he is on point.

      • Otile

        Yes oo, I hate haters, I have corrupt leaders, I hate oppressors, yes I hate them all.

    • PolyGon2013

      You are praying to have a leader like Tinubu in your tribe (ibo). Nobody messes with the Jagabon.

      I understand the Boko Haram Chairman of PDPigs is drafting you online e-rats to Sambisa soon, that is how you sold your soul for crumbs, It’s all got end for you at Sambisa!

      • emmanuel

        Jagaban of thieves? I thought you pretended your were civilised some months ago. So a rich thief is better than honest men?
        You are low on everything and that is why you are Tundemess.

        • tundemash

          Mr. Wailing Wailer, may you wail till eternity. The more u wail , the more Jagaban thrives. If in doubt, ask your PDPigs leaders.

      • Otile

        Abubakar tundemash,

        I am glad I was able to smoke you out, otherwise you would remain taciturn with nobody to defend our Jagaban. Right on bro, step in to defend the corrupt one. You are here to defend ‘them corrupt ones’. Abubakar, o ga o.

    • Julius

      Homosexual biafraudian, why do you care about whats going on in Nigeria ? You have your own republic of SS ati SE. Right ? Worry about that and please leave us alone. wetin concern you self ?. lolz

      • Otile

        Once more I have to teach you something, only that you are too daft to understand. Unfortunately for you, your thinking mode is not developed beyond the primordial instincts. You are developed only to the base instincts of man. When you read anything from intellectuals your mind revolves around the basal instincts. For instance we are discussing Tinubu and his corrupt practices but your mind takes you to interject homosexuality and uncalled for insults. This is your kind of personality, your stunted intellectual growth and mental retardation, this is you.

        Owing to your naivety, and slowness of understanding you blame me for caring about Nigeria. What a_fool! can’t you understand that the well-being of Nigeria is good for not only Nigeria but also for Nigeria’s neighbors? Can’t you understand that shattered Nigeria will adversely affect Republic of Benin, Niger, Chad, Cameroon, and Biafra? Do you understand anything at all?

        Don’t you see that US will never allow Mexico to go baje? They like to have Canada as good neighbors and will do everything to help Mexico to do well. Unfortunately you will never thank me for teaching you good lessons. I expect you to return this good one with your usual insults. Never mind, I understand your level of development.

  • Deola

    The fact is that there is no character assassination that can add to or reduce this man, Bola Tinunbu. He is a visionary leader who mean well for his country, Nigeria. Let people go back to check the history of this man. He has always being at the side of masses. The latest testimony of his love for a great Nigeria is his self commitment to lead a fight aimed at delivering Nigeria from the cabal of Treasury looters that were having their grips on Nigeria. He was accused, called names, and cursed by enemies of progress but he refused to succumb to various attacks. It is evident that those who even sponsored propaganda documentaries against him are found out to be worst than what they wanted people to believe he is. Tinubu is a typical Yoruba leader with uncommon love for the development of his people in particular and a national leader of repute in general. Take or not, God give us people like Tinubu to deliver us from the hands of Babangidas, Abachas, Obasanjos, Jonathans, to mention but few. He has is short comings, as normal for every human being, but his positive side is better for Nigeria development. Surely, the enemies of what is happening in Nigeria now and their agents will never like this man, Tinubu as they will continue to do everything to pull him down. But the fact is that, it is God that chooses a leader. Tinubu, more grease to your elbow.

    • PolyGon2013

      I totally agree. Tinubu is the man.

    • Ibukun Fadairo

      Well encapsulated!

      • emmanuel

        Yorubas see no evil in evil when committed by one of their own. That is why you hear “se omg Yoba ni?”. Faith relationship and friendship is immediately thrown over board to support at the Yoruba wrong doer at the expense of an acquaintance. Even if the one that was right is a christian brother or sister of the wronged, the Yoruba person would rather betray such persons and support a so-called If a priest.
        Your state of mind has exposed that treat in you.

    • emmanuel

      Every Yoruba man queue behind their own even when a thief! The Pastors and Imams are not excluded from that evil of supporting evil.
      check the thread here.

      • oyekunle fidelis

        Emmanuel, who are you really…………?
        Because you have cast great aspersions on another race, whatever the grievances, I feel it’s immature and unjust to hide under the guise of social media to make disparaging remarks about any tribe. If any body offends your sensibilities you have the right to tackle such individual head on.While the topic is expected to generate heated controversies yet people should be very matured in their reactions. In all these virulent and malicious attacks on each other’s tribe, the questions that have consistently comes to mind is who chooses where to be born and religion, in fact when people change religion how many choose race, colour, tribe, status, family to be born.Now, Emmanuel you can now see it’s wrong to hurl abuses and insults on another.
        Let’s us rather see our leaders in the past as people who have failed Nigeria- failure to harness our great potential human and natural for the common good of our people. I have asked people who are apologies of our previous leaders- Obasanjo, Jonathan and co that what did they do when barrel of oil was sold for £100 and more.What did they do with the money, why waspower sector still moribund, what’s happened to railway system, our refineries. ? If the military failed deliver on these public goods should our democratic leaders followed suits, why should we wait for a septuagenarian in Buhari to step in to fix our country during this age and time when in western societies the young and highly wired men like Obama, David Cameron are at the helms?
        Why are we so parochial and sentimental about our ethnicity and religion. ?

        I have always felt Tinubu’s matter is like any other past leaders who dole carrots to subjects and stroll with the large chunk of the loot. It does no one any good defending a Tinubu, Obasanjo, or Jonathan or IBB himself on the grounds of ethnic affinity. Such parochial sentiments will never add value to our individual lives collectively, rather it’s shows how mindless and shallow we are in thinking and thoughts, as all they make from the LOOTS is reserved and preserved for their OWN. People should rise above ethnic, religious inclinations and act responsibly and responsively to the menace of corruption, evil of bribery, bad leadership and bad follwership.

    …LOL…..it’s interesting to watch…….MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD fighting corruption……a born criminal like Thiefnubu who has stolen taxpayers money in Lagos talking about corruption…..it is like brainless Buhari who stole $2.8 billion in 1978 and PTF funds in 1998 “fighting” corruption…….Haaaaa….I hop youths are not reading and attend events organized by this CRIMINALS

    only “southern Yariba almajiris” and “technically intelligentsia” minions and apc e-rats would stand and here this CORRUPT THIEFNUBU & BRAINLESS BUHARI talk about ‘fighting’ corruption…..when I see criminals like THIEFNUBU talk about “figting” corruption I wonder why we killed ONYENUSI when the real CRIMINALS RESIDE in LAGOS…….& DAURA

    • Ibukun Fadairo

      Thank God that at least Jonathan and his cabinet members aren’t corrupt. DASUKIGATE, NIMASSAGATE, OILSWAP DEALS etc. Someone needs to pull off the wool in his eyes and mind to be able to see and read well

    Asiwaju of the universe! The visionary one; iya oko wan; the man who stood to conquer… With your uncommon love for the development of this country, we trust on President Buhari and the APC to bring the desired CHANGE to Nigeria.

    • emmanuel

      Mushin is Yoruba, right? The event of last week end in which the two most prominent Yoruba men who are rogues – Obasanjo and Tinubu spoke glowingly against corruption tells me that in your ethnic group, corruption is a celebrate virtue and that is why you have celebrated Tinubu here.
      i am not surprised, because the lies peddled that your Oduduwa came down from Heaven with a chain at the time when stones had not been used to light fire; how much more chains developed has not been debunked. Meanwhile, that syndrome of lies and hypocrisy runs in the blood of every Oduduwa person. SomeoneYoruba guys told me that story was a myth, that way, it is easier to conclude that your origin is unknown!
      If you argue that with me, then stop celebrating the thieves among you and tell the truth when things have gone wrong like it is in the Nigeria of today.

    • Fuzio

      No only the asiwaju of the universe but that of the universes. Remember, there are many of them.

  • favourtalk

    Yess, jagaban of Africa, please tell them. They need to know the reason why corruption needs to go away from Nigeria.

    • George

      Yes its nice seeing Tinubu talking of corruption, is it not it, its.

      Welcome to the wonderland called Nigeria where the thief are the police.

          But this is the problem with Nigeria. Thieves and criminals are assisted to
          lead public opinion by corrupt intellectuals and journalists looking for gift
          and some free money. This is the only country where Professors don’t feel
          belittled when summoned by school drop-outs to come and draft a speech
          for the drop-out for a fee stolen. In return, the professor is then given a bag
          of blood money. Lawyers too are in the racket. They are the palace guards
          who protect thieves from deserved slur and punishment. Nigeria becomes
          a crime scene of thieves and accessories, without redemption hopes.
          Please publish my letter for the sake of history to know where i stood.

  • emmanuel

    Bloody rogue, return Lagos State Mobile money which you converted to your personal account whilst a Governor. At least, EFCC published that in Trinube in a November 2006. In the report, Ribadu chronicled how you, Ibori and Victor Attah stole your respective States investment in Vmobile.
    The APC is a nest of devils who want those who already know them to believe they are saints.

    That also include the shameless Obasanjo who has refused to return the bribe he collected from Halliburton.

    I honestly think Nigeria seize to exist to give room for a new nation to bud.
    Wait a minute, is it that theft in Nigeria has a tenor after which it no longer stand as theft? or why are rogue now those who preach the virtue of honesty?My conclusion : Nigeria default state of civility is structure on theft and roguery!

    The Sun news paper awards. Bola Tinubu should’ve play down the meaningless award. Tinubu is a master political strategist. He deserve recognition for his relentless effort to transform the political landscape of Nigeria.
    Sun Newspaper Award has no ranking anywhere that count.
    Nigerian recognize your efforts. We’re also mindful of your short coming. Please stop jumping on every opportunity for a cheap award.

  • JSA1

    BUT WITHIN THE 16 YEARS PDP HAS BEEN IN POWER, TINUBU WAS TRIED AT THE CCT AND WAS DISCHARGED AND ACQUITTED OF ANY CORRUPTION. THIS ACQUITTAL HAPPENED UNDER MUGU JONATHAN. WHAT HAS CHANGED SO SOON THAT TINUBU IS BEING GIVEN A BAD NAME INSTEAD OF BEING CELEBRATED? WAS IT BECAUSE MUMU JONATHAN DID NOT SEE STEALING AS CORRUPTION OR WHAT IS IT? LET NIGERIANS BE FAIR TO TINUBU WHOM GOD USED AS A CAUSATIVE AGENT FOR THE CHANGE WE CURRENTLY ENJOY. BY THE TIME PMB IS THROUGH WITH INSTITUTIONAL REFORMS AND ALL LEAKAGES ARE BLOCKED, YOU SEE THE CHANGE IN REALITY AND NATURALLY, THE VALUE OF THE NAIRA WILL BEGIN TO FIRM UP AUTOMATICALLY. WATCH AND SEE!!!

  • oyekunle fidelis

    Emmanuel, who are you really. Because you have cast great aspersions on another race, whatever the grievances, I feel it’s immature and unjust to hide under the guise of social media to make disparaging remarks about any tribe. If any body offends your sensibilities you have the right to tackle such individual head on.While the topic is expected to generate heated controversies yet people should be very matured in their reactions. In all these virulent and malicious attacks on each other’s tribe, the questions that have consistently comes to mind is who chooses where to be born and religion, in fact when people change religion how many choose race, colour, tribe, status, family to be born.Now, Emmanuel you can now see it’s wrong to hurl abuses and insults on another.
    Let’s us rather see our leaders in the past as people who have failed Nigeria- failure to harness our great potential human and natural for the common good of our people. I have asked people who are apologies of our previous leaders- Obasanjo, Jonathan and co that what did they do when barrel of oil was sold for £100 and more.What did they do with the money, why waspower sector still moribund, what’s happened to railway system, our refineries. ?

    Tell this rubbish sun Newspapers that Tifnubu has done well in paying them bribes to get such award to be able to boost his image and try to cover up his imminent EFCC probe.

    Apart from PMB who is as clean as a whistle i can not vouch for any other person.Time for lies is over.

  • Jide

    It is glaring that some Nigerians don’t even know what they want. They could not determine whether there is need for people to change their orientation, attitude and behavior towards integrity and national discipline. The major factor responsible for this, in my own opinion, is ethnic and religion sentiments. So bad. Corruption has been entrenched into our way of life so long and it has eaten deep into every fabric of our lives that we could hardly see any incorruptible fellow in the country. We need a change of attitude for this country to move forward. We cannot keep on doing the same thing and expected a different result. That is why Nigeria need “repentant leaders,” since nearly everyone has being stained by corruption due to nonchalant attitude of the past leaders to see corruption as evil, to get Nigeria back into right track. Due to deteriorating Nigeria system, even the children in their mother wombs are already corrupt. Just go to your very village, not talk of city, call a boy or girl of 6 years, give him or her 500 naira to buy something that cost 250 naira for you. You will be surprised that he or she will want to make at least 100 naira from that money. That is the level of Nigeria corruption. Everyone need to have a change of orientation, change of habit and behavior. That is why people with repentant hearts, not those that still believe in waiting for the time to get their own “national cake” are those we need to lead us in Nigeria of today. Regardless of whatever accusations, proved or not proved, people are throwing at Tinubu, Tinubu has appeared to be a transformed leader that is ready to sacrifice anything for the betterment of Nigeria. He sacrificed selfish ambition, for transparent government by supporting and fighting for actualization of Buhari presidency which is giving most Nigerians hope for more discipline society. Give and take, Tinubu is a worthy apostle of positive change in Nigeria. This fact, the disposed and unrepentant corrupt leaders and their agents will always fight to bury. God bless all Nigerian repentant leaders, God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria.

    There are some people with shallow minds that are quick to attack people based on their tribes or beliefs instead of presenting basis for their arguments. Such people are, in most cases suffering from inferiority complex. Imagine, someone accusing Yorubas of supporting lies and stealing if it is by tribesmen, so hilarious. I have not see any other tribe that condemn its own of wrong doing in Nigeria like Yorubas do. Just go and make research on the people that is always at fore front of fighting for fairness, justice, good governance and human right, regardless of who is affected. The result will be Yorubas. If Youruba did not celebrate Obasanjo while he was the president the way SS&SE celebrated Jonathan just because he was from them, despite his atrocities, that should tell everyone that want to know that Yorubas are people with great minds and big hearts. Know that Yorubas will never support any crime against the existence of Federal Republic of Nigeria. If you call Yorubas tribalists or our leaders tribal leaders because of that, all well and good. But we will always be there for all peace, justice, fairness loving people of Nigeria regardless of where they come from or what they believe.
