when you hear a breath of contemporary air what image kinds to your mind?
Mine sees newness, freshness and healthful trade. When President Jonathan Goodluck went in every single place the usa telling the negative folks he had no shoes and therefore is one among them, that a vote for him is a vote for his or her dreams and wishes, many obtained carried away by way of that sentimental positioning.
after all the lies worked as Nigerians got fooled with the aid of a politician for the umpteenth time. After weeks of indecisiveness and absolute lull in govt, the President eventually sent his list ministerial of nominees to the Senate. For the many who had anticipated a deviation from the norm – the norm being an inventory that’d incorporate overused heads, wives, daughters and sons of the cabal, politicians and cronies of the men in energy – Jonathan performed them like Lionel Messi would have done with a soccer and now has them on their bottom.
For starters, the former Minister of Petroleum tools Diezani Alison-Madueke bought cleared via the Nigerian Senate regardless of mounting allegations of corruption and more recently the discovery that she didn’t take a look at the obligatory nationwide adolescence service Corps (NYSC). She is billed to return to the same office. that particular ministerial portfolio is immediately beneath the keep an eye on of Dame patience Jonathan. She runs the Petroleum ministry via her model mentor Bola Shagaya. Theirs is a triangle of fraud that has come what may refrained from the prying eyes of attentive Nigerians. That was the it’s because her screening these days went with no single reference to the NYSC query. instead of that she was once eulogized and praised for being an angel amidst demons. which you could make certain that the Senate management has been smartly paid for this explicit job. they’re all a part of the recent air Nigerians persisted the rain and the solar to vote for final April. Nigerians don undergo I swear.
considering the fact that the muse of Jonathan’s campaign was built on his sameness and similarity to the Nigerian plenty cue “i’m GOODLUCK JONATHAN”, i wonder if a type of who claimed they were Jonathan would have long gone beforehand to incorporate non-performing ex-ministers, family members of cronies and stooges of past leaders who failed Nigeria in occasions earlier. Is that what you’d do when you in point of fact had been Goodluck Jonathan? Most if no longer all of the successes executed by President Obasanjo’s executive had been made that you can think of by mavens – individuals who manned offices they had years of training for. assume Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Mallam Nasir Elrufai, Oby Ezekwesili and some uncelebrated heads of presidency companies just like the FIRS and NAFDAC – ok NAFDAC’s head received celebrated. Go from the Cape to Cairo, from Washington to London, a President is only as excellent as his cabinet. while this explicit President wasted a twelfth of the 12 months dillydallying on whom to position on his list, the names he ended up with could no longer even justify his waste of time. allow us to no longer omit that he’s not a brand new president as he had some twelve months to test the waters. It appears fairly than use those months to test run his potential, he’d be the usage of the next 4 years to do same i.e. to test his incapacity.
those of you getting fooled through phony rankings placing Nigeria because the fourth quickest growing economy on the planet (or ninth as any other companies reported), will have to no longer be fooled. there’s a paradigmatic difference between growth and construction. Wasn’t that why our lecturers made us have in mind their variations and person meanings? We could also be growing as an economy however we’re far from growing as a individuals and a society. If we per likelihood export an additional 1,000,000 barrels of petroleum per day for a year, it will affect our increase indices as an economy however may not necessarily have any bearing by any means on our development. The Africa record magazine wants you to believe Jonathan’s promise of a fresh air is something he’s sworn and devoted to, but if via now, and at the least based on his ministerial nominees you don’t comprehend better, I’d say you will have to maintain waiting for the beginning of the messiah.
He fooled you to get your votes pronouncing he had no footwear and since majority of you had no shoes you should vote for him, you did. Now he is enjoying you for the idiot once more by means of selecting the same folks that were part of the rowdy air he administered to his personal more or less recent air. If that is what contemporary air is all about, I’d slightly we now have a president who’d promise us recent farts. That approach, we all know it’ll be a contrast from this charade. the rest completely different from this could be higher. This President has once more shown that he is no longer cutout to steer. Most of you have to be praying for time to run fast enough so that you may vote him out, however the sad a part of that want is that most will still go ahead to vote the incorrect folks once more. we have been fooled over and once more but we permit them to do it once more. Sorry but the fact needs to be said as living with out the flexibility to voice the truth is worse than loss of life. they say silence is golden however i am absolutely sure whoever mentioned that is not a Nigerian. As for this united states of america, silence is a weak point. I imagine people who said they had been gazing are still doing comparable since the watchers are being watched too even though many believe the watchers had been duly paid with the aid of these they are looking at. it’s the conundrum referred to as Nigeria. were you one of the most fools? it is ok if you are no longer getting fooled via this football recreation being played without goal posts.
