The land isn’t green, according to Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said the country is moving towards disaster under President Muhammadu Buhari. Obasanjo, who spoke in an interview with Premium Times, said the economy was unstable, and added that the current administration had destroyed the war against corruption, which he said started during his administration.
He said, “The progress we are making may be questionable –Is it fast enough? Is it steady enough? Is it stable enough? Are we taking two steps forward and one step backwards or one step sideways?
“You can question that, but we have no choice but to be on (the) path of sustainable development. Any other thing will be a disaster. In fact, the pace at which we are going now is tending more and more towards disaster and instability and unsustainability.”
LOL. Baba don see say Naija situation no need letter writing again. But with all the shouting and complaining wey Nigerians don do, e be like say dem don soundproof Aso Rock.
Okorocha shines teeth with INEC
Immediate past Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for issuing him his certificate of return as the Senator-elect for Imo West.Okorocha, in a statement by his media aide, Sam Onwuemedo, in Owerri, said that he was happy that the issuance of certificate of return received national and international attention.
The statement read in part, “With the release of his certificate of return as the Senator-elect for Imo West Senatorial District, former governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has thanked God.
“He also thanked Nigerians for their concern and solidarity all through the period his certificate of return was an issue. He also expressed gratitude to the judiciary for being there for those who hunger for justice.”
LOL. This Okorocha matter further proves that it’s not only Nigerian students that are being frustrated in the hunt for certificates: even our elders dey hear am.
‘There’s no good news here’
Abdulmumuni, son of the late Chief MKO Abiola, has bemoaned the lack of progress in the country since 1993. Abdulmumuni, who was at the National Centre for Women Development in Abuja on Monday to receive an award on behalf of his late mother, who was inducted into the Nigerian Women Hall of Fame alongside 21 others, said, “The recognition of June 12 as Democracy Day will get people thinking.
“I don’t think it should be a day of celebration. It should be a day of reflection of where we are as a country and where we are going. It is important that we should know that for the decisions we make today, there are consequences.
“This is because those who made the decisions to truncate the Nigerian people’s yearning for democracy in 1993 would now see that sometimes when you make certain decisions, you must see the consequences”.
Truth is, there’s nothing to cheer about the Nigerian politics. Every day births one sad/bizarre news or the other. Crazy country.
Love Nwan tintin
A husband and wife say they’re as happy as ever despite funny looks they receive because of their 40-year age gap.
Edna Martin, 83, says she still enjoys a happy sex life with Simon, 44, who she spends the evenings cuddling with on the sofa ‘like a couple of kids’. The couple got married some 14 years ago when she instantly fell in love with his impressive organ skills. Cynics said the great grandmother was looking for a naive toy boy, but they are as happy as ever.
She said: ‘We are still intimate in the bedroom as much as any couple in love. We’ll often stop in the street and have a damn good kiss – I’ve never felt conscious of the age gap in public…We just do what two people in love do.’
Wow. Good for them. I’m sha looking for a rich, older woman who will take care of me and my unborn children. PS: I’m a lazy Nigerian youth. What were you expecting?
