5 Reasons Nigerians Are Loving Prof Osinbajo As President!





Osinbajo became acting president after President Muhammadu Buhari proceeded on annual vacation/medical check up in the UK on Thursday, January 19, 2017.
Buhari sent a letter to the National Assembly informing it of his intention and transferred power to Osinbajo pending his return.
Buhari has also been hailed for transferring power to Osinbajo while he’s away and also for picking a Vice President who can handle the affairs of thr nation smoothly and progressively if he’s not available.
Here are some things the Acting President has done that have left Nigerians happy:
1. Food Programme
On Friday, January 24, he promised that the Federal Government was planning urgent relief to poultry farmers in the country to save the industry from collapse. He also presided over the Federal Executive Council(FEC) meeting on February 1, during which the Presidential Task Force on food security was mandated to reduce prices of food items in the country.
2. Road Contracts
On February 8, he chaired the FEC and approved the N21 billion bill for the construction of the Ilorin-Omu Aran-Kabba Road, Section I.
February 15, he approved the award of N126 billion road projects spread across Kano, Bauchi, Adamawa, Kwara, Gombe, Enugu and Kaduna states.
3. Visiting The Niger Delta
Between February 10 and 13, Osinbajo visited Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital in continuation of his interactive engagements with oil-producing communities in the Niger Delta region.
He proceeded to Port Harcourt, Rivers state, to meet stakeholders of the oil producing communities there. During the meeting, he rolled out the framework for the clean-up exercise of the Ogoni land.
4. CBN and the Foreign Exchange Policies
February 16, he presided over the first National Economic Council meeting of the year and directed the CBN to review the foreign exchange policy. In the meeting, it was resolved that fresh $250 million be injected into the Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF). The CBN subsequently released about $500 million through the interbank market, where 23 banks bought $371m.
5. Signed 7 Bills Into Law
February 17, Professor Osinbajo signed seven bills into law. These bills included the Oaths (Amendment) Act 2017; Defence Space Administration Act 2017; Veterinary Surgeons (Amendment) Act 2017; and others.

Nigerians are excited, for many, this is the very first feel of CHANGE promised to us some two years ago. Some opine that PMB take just as long, much longer preferably, as he wants on vacation. Some say Osinbajo may be the Messiah we've prayed for for so long. Others ask them to shush claiming that everything Osibanjo is doing has been in the works long before President Buhari went on vacation, and/or like his PA (social media), Lauretta Onochie said some days ago, both men are a team and the "somewhat" goodness Nigerains are experiencing these days are a product of teamwork, not solely Osinbajo's doing. 
Me, I don't know. I just want the dollar to get back to N200 or less. #dasall. 
You?

  1. Hmm. The things we celebrate tho.

    What exactly is Osinbajo doing under 1month that the Buhari cldnt do in over 1yr? Did we have to be in a recession to know that prevention is better than cure?

    When $$ was rising,they called it "hard reset", blamed oil price crash and GEJ not saving. So Osinbajo isn't following the same hard reset? Or am I missing something?

    How buhari was allowed to be president in this 21st century wld remain a topic for generations to come.

    Whenever APC implements policies of the last admin, the economy benefits but whenever they implement their own policies, the economy worsens (and turn around to blame GEJ)

    Suddenly Osinbajo is resetting the policies of Buhari. I'm naturally expecting buhari supporters to condemn the strides Osinbajo is taking (afterall, everything Buhari did is right and the path way of anti corruption fight).

    You can't hide or airbrush incompetence. Nig is bigger than that man resting in London.

  2. Good to be back, bush life is killing during recession. Congrats MZ Adah and Kene on your graduation, and to Thelma on her Isiewu joint opening. Nne broadcast Addy soonest.

    To the Post: Honestly I told myself I wouldn't engage in too much political discussion this year but I was really smh and smiling at the so-called reasons "Nigerians are Loving" PYO. The person should've just tagged it "Wailers TV" and instead of "Nigerians", gone with "Wailers".

    Femi Fani "Illuminati" Kayode:
    "Osinbajo betrayed the church by joining APC Islamic party" - 2015.

    "Osinbajo is GOD sent to APC" - 2017 (after latest FX rates)

    Ben Bruce:
    "Buhari is a failure. How can you appoint a lawyer to head economic team and expect a healthy economy?" - 2016

    "Osibanjo should teach his boss Buhari" - 2017 (after latest FX rates).

    This is a minute example of the kind of confused people who have been roaming the streets of Facebook and Twitter. They remember to abuse PMB who appointed PYO as head of econs team, abuse PMB when policies from this team go south, abuse him even when he disputes the policies of the team he set up. Now that this very same team is responsible for the recent FX rates improvement, it is "all hail Osinbajo". Lol. Common sense is actually not common finally.

    Anyway I don't see any cause for celebration, just heaving a sigh of relief that the rates have improved from 516 to 425-$ after the initial shock of seeing it tanking from 470 to 516-$ within 2 weeks. Thank GOD for improved FX reserves, improved oil production, and slight increase in oil prices. And for those who actually think that PYO has a different agenda to that of PMB, lol. Lol again, too funny. Both men communicate almost daily; same team, same presidency, same agenda. I don't blame them wailers tho...their hero was all alone in his agenda. Who could blame him? When you have a VP competing with Ghost workers why will anyone be having time to debate your agenda within the presidency? What's that his name again? Something Sambo...

  3. Lol, I see you're on the same page as ur twitter people cos uve clearly mirrored their thoughts.

    PYO is the economic head meaning ur trying to push the buck of the decline and contraction of the economy to Osinbajo? So we have a figure head president all along and no one told us? Choi

    Either ur the PA or the SSA or PSAA to PYO to know he communicates daily with London but if I'm not mistaken,they were both is Asorock for the past 20months. Is the person he has a long distance relationship with from London different from they 16m voted in?

    Oil has been on a slight increase but it's been easier to use oil crash and GEJ as a cheap excuse and cover up. Did the oil price just increase last week? We don't know how much is produced daily, sold daily and remitted into the federal accounts. Even the NASS recently revealed there's been no records from oil people since June 2015 bu ur trying to celebrate what?.

    "They have the same agenda" lol. Atleast you didn't hurt us by adding "the same body language"

    Empty barrels make the most noise but propaganda can't last forever. In ur bid to shade Sambo, you also shaded Buhari. You voted for someone ur scared to admit wrecked the economy under 20months but are giddy to call out Sambo? *chuckles*

    1. Like I said earlier, petty political debate is not gonna take my time this year. Why wailing for GEJ in 2017 is now a priority for you and your ilk isn't surprising, I always wonder why you always misconstrue people's opinions just so you can sound "right".

      - nobody is trying to push any buck to PYO, Buhari takes the blame and should also take the kudos. If y'all can comfortably abuse him for appointing PYO as head of his economic team, y'all shouldn't hesitate to give him kudos when said team does well.

      -you keep talking about 15 million who voted Buhari. Ironic, seeing as you were unwilling to stain your thumb for uncle Lucky in 2011 and 2015 but would rather sit on the fence and throw bants. I won't be surprised if you didn't protest with EiE few weeks ago.

      -there's nothing like "cheap excuse" when it comes to GEJ. Apart from squandering over N48 trillion, depleting our reserves from $60 billion to $28 billion, borrowing to pay salaries, decreased FDIs, devaluing our currency twice in 2 months, dishonoring infrastructure contracts in the SE and SS, lack of security (while claiming a vibrant economy), etc, poor guy was too clueless to even detect the enormous heist under him. Check out the recent discoveries... even ordinary ministers are forfeiting over $200 million in worth. So please, spare me of GEJ.

      "...empty barrels make the most noise..."

      Exactly, that's why we call them "wailers". I have always voiced out my displeasure for Buhari's policies and the idea that I'm "scared" of doing so only boils down to the end product of your sycophancy. I'm not here to sing anyone's praises neither will I condemn someone's intentions when they are sincere.

      So keep on reminding yourself about GEJ and keep going on with the fallacy that PMB and PYO have separate agendas, that's your opinion, no one is ready to change it. And remember that another election comes up in 2019. Prepare your voters card (not even sure you have one), so that you can exercise your civic responsibility and not watch E! when other wailers are trying to "Change the Change". Vote and vote wisely, and protest when EiE calls out again. And oh, before I forget, please vote for people you can actually remember their names and what they look like. At least I can absolve you for giving us a mannequin as VP since you didn't vote even though I take part of the blame for that...I voted that clueless team in 2011.

    2. Sasha Bone and Memphis part... what?

      I've missed you guys so much..lol

    3. Tra la la la la...lol

      PYO was appointed head of economic team yet for 20months,the $$ was high on its own supply but under 38days,the same $$ is falling? The only constant here is the presence and absence of Buhari. Take a trip to Uk and argue with him.

      Suddenly you wanna give kudos to PMB over the strides of PYO but you all were always quick to blame GEJ for "squandering the reserves"? (at least he remained some they are using to chill in London,hallelujah).

      When the last admin was "squandering the reserves",they called it corruption or "no political will to save",yet we see CBN under PYO pumping the same reserves into the economy to push the $$ down. It's suddenly cool to squander reserves now abi?

      You tired of roping in GEJ that you had to rope in Sambo too? Wonder who next? Lol.

      NB: whether you vote or not,as a citizen, I have the constitutional rights to criticize the govt that wins. Blind sycophancy is for only those directly being paid by the govt to sing it's praises. Hope ur among them...

  4. I pray that the Naira keeps appreciating against the dollar anything or anybody that will be a hindrance to this, may God destroy it/ the person. If Buhari needs to stay in London for the rest of his term for this to happen, God keep him and anything keeping him there put.

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
