Kano State Gov Kwankwaso and His Men Sweep President Jonathan Out of Kano

Kano Governor

The picture tells a whole story about Nigerian politics in a nutshell….thank God for social media, atleast Nigerians will know and understand the mentality of people that rule them.

First the president received similar treatment after his visit to Imo state, where APC women party members swept his imaginary feet out of Imo, when he visited them for political rally. He has received the same treatment in Kano state after his political rally visit to the state.

TUFIAKWA!!!!

Cure For Ebola Virus In Nigeria Found Already?

Ebola

Last week, there were health fears over the deadly Ebola Virus which has killed high percentage of individuals who contracted the virus in some West African countries. The media reported that Nigeria is at risk of getting the virus from their neighbouring  Ebola-hit west African countries like Ghana. As usual, it just  became a mere health scare and no clear tangible plans to control it, that I know of.

One of Africa’s most powerful presidents, President Yahya Jammeh of Gambia, had ordered airlines to cancel all flights from Ebola-hit west African countries, as one of his strategic measures to curb the deadly disease from his country. Although, passengers were stranded, but I must say that he atleast has shown concern regarding the health of his Nation.

My question is….What is Nigeria doing as a preventive measure? How many of the Nigerian villagers are aware of how not to contact Ebola disease?

One thing I dislike about Nigeria is this, once certain things hit headlines, it just dies off naturally the next few days, and both the Govt and the citizens just go into relaxation mood until it becomes deadly!!!

Typical example is Boko Haram, they could have been wiped out when they started. International inteligence would have been sought after earlier than now. But hell no! We waited until they got out of hand, we waited until their sponsors imported enough ammunitions…we waited and waited until they started kidnapping young girls and killing bread winners of their respective families. We waited until they started killing women and children.

All that our leaders and Boko Haram sponsors seem to be doing is playing blame games of political opponents! PDP  pointing fingers at APC and vice versa, yet Nigerians fold their arms and are happy for these two political parties that have kept the Nation in bondage to carry on? When two elephants fight, who bears the impact?.

I have never voted in Nigeria in my entire life and never will until young vibrant people take over leadership. Because I know my vote won’t count as the elections get rigged.

I vote in the UK were atleast I could see some level of transparency!!! The moment Nigerian people from opposition parties are selected to monitor elections in Nigeria, it will become free and fair. All political parties will select a candidate to represent them at each polling boot. Heavy security prescence and international supervisors will be present to also monitor the activities, and by so doing, we can go forward politically in Nigeria. Me and my Dad’s political motto is simple: Politics without bitterness.

Ehen…back to Ebola virus matter! I found this article about how monkeys with the virus were cured in Canada. Shouldn’t African Presidents put heads together and fund the research to get the cure asap?

Read it below:

Canadian scientists may be on the verge of finding a cure for Ebola after an experimental drug “cocktail” apparently cured monkeys infected with the deadly virus.

NIGERIA: Police Officials Prevent Jobless Graduate From Committing Suicide In Uyo

graduate attempts suicide in Uyo Akwaibom state

I hope President Jonathan, his advisers and all state Governors can now prioritise job creation across all Nigerian states in order to save the lives of the unemployed youths. The rise in crime and insecurity in Nigeria is because the Youths are not empowered to own their businesses or gain employment. Small businesses have no access to unsecured loans from banks etc.

Below is a report from Punch regarding the incident in Uyo Akwa Ibom state:

An unemployed engineering graduate of Ekiti State University, Mr. Sunday Omotayo, was on Wednesday prevented from committing suicide by the police and prison officials.

Omotayo, who caused a stir along Wellington Bassey Way, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, when he deliberately jumped out of a speeding Toyota Hiace bus, expecting to be crushed to death by other vehicles, said he was tired of life as he had been searching for a job for the past 10 years after graduation.

Behind Closed Doors Meeting At Presidential Villa- Femi Kayode and The Nigerian President

Femi-Fani-Kayode vs President Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday met behind closed doors with a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Hmmnnnn…talk of Nigerian wuruwuru politics!

Fani-Kayode, is one of the major critics of the Jonathan administration and has been reported to have attended the meeting which was held inside the President’s office with an unidentified man….Lmao.

Listen my people, if you want to defect to PDP from APC….just become a ‘pontificate and you might just be a perfect fit.

I strongly believe that someday, Nigeria will grow out of PDP and APC syndrome, into a modern politics without bitterness. Which will involve vibrant and sane young generation with the likes of me. Not recycling all these old people who have nothing to offer us but destruction!!!
