Crony Capitalism at its worst. You take what belongs to all Nigerians and give it few people and without adding any value or doing any work, these individuals pocket $1 billion. Effectively, Nigerians are swindled. How can GEJ authorize this settlement and still go to sleep that day.
Oga waves some forumites will get angry at you here . They will tell there is no corruption and its negligible . It has nothing to do with Nigeria not making progress . Let the grand delusion continue. Its only a matter of time . We cannot continue like this as a nation

It was with disbelief their names had to be unboarded from our Arik 6pm flight to Abuja. Such is life though. May God comfort us all and help us to always be prepared cos of the brevity of life.

On 2013, must we be in opposition Isnt it better to provide support and good governance advice to those already in the position of influence, for the common good? Pls educate me. Respects

The answer to that question no get end O. But suffice it to say it is both 'yes' and 'no'. So long it is 'power' (leadership backed with instrument of state) we are talking about, no human can do without support and good advice. The people around you should be able to point perceived mistakes out to you without fear of falling out of favour with you. But if they decline to offer needed advice; either because of fear of falling out of favour or other pecuniary interests, then those who have no such interests or any fear of being in your bad books should do it for national interest. We may call them 'opposition', but they help us see in 'colours' where it could have been monochrome or black/white. The way and manner the 'opposition' go about it now depends on their motive.

Opposition is viewed in not so good light because of the lack of ideology in our political leanings in this country. I once said on this forum that if I had a company, I would need among the board, a member who has an uncanny ability to spot obstacles in proposed plans. Such a member of board would not be considered an 'opposition'.

An opposition that marshalls out a plan that can better that of the ruling party (whichever party), will be favoured in a future election (I only hope our 'opposition' will see it that way). Opposition should not hoard their ideas until election time. Opposition have no right to criticize a plan to which they offered no alternative ab initio. Its tantamount to treason to know what will destroy your country and refuse to speak up on it. Same for knowing what will better your country and keeping mute about it (sounds harsh abi?).

If we love this country then lets be all out for her, whether you find yourself in the mainstream or what is politically called opposition.

Oga mi, I have thanked you the smn way.
The big problem in Nigeria among the politicians is lack of ideology. And it is a BIG problem that I can not pretend I know how it will be resolved. The root cause I see is poverty, crass materialism with the attendant get-rich quick (possibly by all means) syndrome.

Take for example, in the States, I can easily identify myself with the fiscal and 'values' voters. But in Nigeria, i see myself conflicted. Inately, I am a progressive (with consideration for the downthrodden) but which political platform or politician represent that? Is it the organized opposition (ACN, LP, etc.)? Nay. I got a re-awakening of sorts when the 'opposition' was Occupying Ojota for fuel subsidy and calling GEJ & cabinet all sorts of names, while simulteanously blanket tolling was commencing on Lekki-Epe road with no viable alternatives; and the massing opposition were turning a blind eye.
Then it became clear the mentality of the quintessential Nigerian opposition. I would rather support and try to positively influence people in power for the greater good than dispate energy to replace them with the worse versions, except in cases where they have proven irredeemable.

The big problem in Nigeria among the politicians is lack of ideology. And it is a BIG problem that I can not pretend I know how it will be resolved. The root cause I see is poverty, crass materialism with the attendant get-rich quick (possibly by all means) syndrome.

Take for example, in the States, I can easily identify myself with the fiscal and 'values' voters. But in Nigeria, i see myself conflicted. Inately, I am a progressive (with consideration for the downthrodden) but which political platform or politician represent that? Is it the organized opposition (ACN, LP, etc.)? Nay. I got a re-awakening of sorts when the 'opposition' was Occupying Ojota for fuel subsidy and calling GEJ & cabinet all sorts of names, while simulteanously blanket tolling was commencing on Lekki-Epe road with no viable alternatives; and the massing opposition were turning a blind eye.
Then it became clear the mentality of the quintessential Nigerian opposition. I would rather support and try to positively influence people in power for the greater good than dispate energy to replace them with the worse versions, except in cases where they have proven irredeemable.

Abeg try to dey tell dem make dem dey pay for the copyright of our intellectual properties. It's good we have you here so that you could help us replay some info to them.

gbam. I don thank you the SMN way for this. I had to thank Oga Eni the other day when i saw that he has suddenly discovered it and he is now planning to change his methodology next year. We all saw how the state that accommodated the subsidy protest suddenly increase school fees by more than 1000% and put a toll gate on an uncompleted road and use police to chase away the protesters of the toll gate. They have erected another toll gate on the same uncompleted road again and everywhere is quiet. If this was done by DAM or NOI, by now, twitter and facebook would have crashed from the insults hurled at them.
