    Its very unfortunate that the national political gladiators are busy playing the bad out of good practices of the politics. The down trodden masses of the Nigerian Nation are at disadvantage/receiving end. Where is the peace we used to know?.

    As much as I am against the socalled Gusau ati dasuki loan meant for the fulani contractors–if APC does not not want the president to be handed a cheque for 1b-.simple ask APC ati buhari to tell the fulanis in boko haram to end the killings within the next few hours- then there will not be demands for 1b–its that simple–else just shut yr APC sponsored mouth

    For 15 years since return to civil rule it has been how to remain in power for as long as possible by any serving president. Obasanjo wanted a third term in office now Goodluck all in the name of a second term wants to use public funds to return himself to power by all means. For God’s sake a budget passed into law in May with defence taking 20 percent(about 968 billion naira) yet that money has not been spent completely yet. Then what does the president need additional 1 billion dollars for for God’s sake if not for 2015 election? Why are our leaders so wicked? Even when they come from poor backgrounds they still don’t care about the poor when the get power. If goodluck and his party are performing then let the electorate decide whether we want him to continue beyond 2015 rather than wasting our commonwealth on bribery and sharing of kerosene and rice to poor, helpless Nigerians. Whether christians,moslems, ibo, Yoruba, ijaw, south south, southwest, south east or wherever we come from or our religious inclinations the truth is that since we returned to democracy in 1999 till date poverty has been increasing nationwide. It is high time we set aside our petty differences and unite to fight the degredation foisted on is by our useless and corrupt politicians who don’t mean the country well. Whether pdp, apc, labour all the politician is after is his pocket first. Let us stop deceiving ourselves and face reality. I rest my case.

    Brilliant piece by a brilliant writer. Not the one from the irresponsible and unintelligent Aribisala. No to Jonathan in 2015. God bless you ma’am
