Ten Days To Go!




As the elections loom near and each side seems bent to slinging dirtier mud on the other, we hear all sorts, each, more horrendous than the last, some we know to be fact, some we wonder if someone dreamed up. 

Well I'm just hearing of Buhari voting against Nigeria and I'm wondering if anyone can shed light on this. 

Another thing I'm not quite clear on is the #Change APC keeps talking about. They're making so many promises but haven't once said how they are going to be achieved. An increase in jobs and employment, money payment to every unemployed youth for one year after youth service (anyone have any idea how many million youth we're talking about?), a meal a day for every pupil across the nation, #5000 (monthly?) to 25 million of the poorest families across the nation and so forth. 

Lofty promises that might actually be for the betterment of the people, but just how exactly?

  1. Apparently, in the constituition, no one can hold them to their word. they cant be persecuted if they dont fulfill these promises during the time they spend in office and after. i think thats why they open their mouths to make unrealistic promises. GEJ is not a better option... KOWA is not well known... Buhari seems like he would islamize nigeria and go on a revenge mission. its scary mehn. I dont even want to think about it.

  3. This is Buhari's 4th attempt; I wonder why all these stories are flying all over just this time around. Who is afraid of Buhari?

    That said, in my opinion, I don't see any change coming from the APC camp. The party has members who are as guilty of plundering our country's wealth as their counterparts in PDP. Are some of the core members not former PDP members? What's more? With Tinubu, should we expect the much-needed turnaround miracle?

  4. I intensely describe the mudslinging that has become part and parcel of the coming elections especially when the accuser aren't any better.

    As regards the first story, I believe people should be nominated and elected to any leadership post based on one's perception of their possession of requisite qualities. Do we know if the Igbo man possessed such? I know for sure that one of the causes of Nigeria's seemingly complex issues today is Nepotism/ethnic sentiments. I guess we should just keep on voting people based on shared National identity or kinship feelings rather than what they have to offer.

    The second story although reeks of ethnic allegiance isn't any much different.

    It's very sad that in most issues affecting the nation, people just play to sentiments and forget the real issue at hand, leaving the populace to suffer at the ill consequences of such issues.

    Just as F raised, why are all these issues springing up now. Someone doesn't know want to face the real issues and thinks libel and slander of people's personality is the way forward.

    Don't get me wrong, in my humble opinion, neither Buhari nor APC represents the change we earnestly yearn for, but really I think facing Nigeria's seemingly monstrous issues is a better way to stake a claim to a position because no one is really faultless.

  5. At 9 days to the election, I'm suddenly undecided. I honestly don't know who I will cast my vote for what with Buhari declining presidential debates left and right cos of "credibility" issues and Jonathan being Jonathan.

    As for the stories, like Oga Chris said, I think people should be elected based on what they have done, can do or are doing and also integrity not because of religious or tribal sentiments. Its these sentiments that has brought us where we are today. Its why some christians are going to vote for a wicked and reckless government to continue simply because the opposition is a muslim.

    Then the promises..smh
    Do they really think Nigerians are stupid? Both parties are the same, telling the masses what they want to hear knowing they can never deliver on half of the promises. I read on my way to work this morning that APC hopes to create 3,000,000 jobs and I shook my head.

    The mudslinging..
    I'm not a radio person but for some reason Kabuoy seemed to know all the campaign jingles and I didn't know any one so I started looking for radio about just so I could hear jingles..lol When I eventually got one, the only interesting jingles were the Lagos gubernatorial jingles.. The presidential ... I cant even call them jingles sef... were all about making the other person look bad, worse and worst. It was puke provoking.

    One person promised to make the country ungovernable cos he thinks Nigeria is his father's property, someone who doesn't have a degree thinks he's better than a PhD holder...blah, blah, blah.. Is that really what elections should be about? making the other person look as bad as possible so when we look, we can choose the lesser of two evils?

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…
