Saint Peter’s Memo To Jonathan: Take A Retreat By Okey Ndibe

Dear President Jonathan: You’re not the first Nigerian public official to receive a letter from heaven, but I hope you will be the last. I have God’s instructions to write this letter to you, and to make it as plain as possible.

You recently said you were entrusting Nigeria in God’s hands. The theme of this letter is simple: God says no! You and your bunch of Nigerian politicians (with a lot of help from many citizens) have made a mess of your country. God’s reply is, keep your organized scam of a country. No, God wants no part of the confusion that Nigeria has become.

Look at all the gifts God bestowed on your country. He put massive reserves of oil, tin, coal, bauxite, iron – to name a few – in the depths of the Nigeria land. All Nigerians needed was a bit of imagination, intelligence, prudence, restraint and vision – and your country would be one of the best addresses on earth. Alas, Nigerians (especially “leaders” like yourself) have left most of the resources untapped. And you have all squandered the fortune from oil. You’ve wasted your oil riches through greed, in pursuit of frippery and frivolity.

Here in heaven, Nigerian politicians are regarded as a pathetic, comedic bunch. You’re all notorious for hypocritical or misconceived statements. Most of you rig elections, for example, and then proclaim that your power came from God. You all loot the treasury – and claim that God blessed you with wealth. You all let Nigerian roads deteriorate to a terrible state. Then, when horrible accidents occur on these roads, presto, you blame the deaths and injuries on some faceless demon.

Nigerian public officials are laughable. You fly to German, British, American, Saudi Arabian, French and Indian hospitals whenever you or members of your immediate family have a health scare – or, sometimes, just a headache. You forget that true leaders work to develop their own countries. Nelson Mandela, one of the noblest leaders in the world, doesn’t ever leave South Africa for medical treatment abroad. It was South Africans, not God, who built their country’s healthcare system. You and your associates have done nothing to lift Nigeria’s healthcare system from its squalid state. That’s one reason millions of Nigerians die needlessly.

Nigerian “leaders” spend long hours, day and night, carting away their country’s resources to private bank accounts all over the world. Then, as your country gets more mired in misery, you shout that God is in control. God says, “Tufia!” God has no part in decadence and corruption. You and your associates admonish the victims of corruption to pray and fast, to importune heaven for solutions to their manifold problems. You award national honors to certified criminals, and then wonder that terrorists and kidnappers prowl the land. With a straight face, you sell a lie to Nigerians: that it’s God’s job to pronounce a halt to the spree of suicide bombings and other forms of violence.  

I’m going to be blunt. God is not amused a bit about the way Nigerian officials abuse His name. Your appalling habit causes a lot of head-shaking, and even the occasional fury, in heaven.

You must be aware that I rebuked your predecessors for making light of God’s name. You must know that I sternly warned them to leave God out of their sinister plots and diabolical schemes. Yet you, President Jonathan, have chosen to carry on in the manner of previous occupants of Aso Rock. That’s why this letter became not only necessary but also urgent.

Recently, you attended a congress of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. The caption of one newspaper report said it all: “RCCG Congress: Jonathan Entrusts Nigeria to God.” The report’s opening paragraph stated: “President Goodluck Jonathan has entrusted the nation’s future into God’s care. On Friday, Jonathan told the teeming congregation at this year’s Holy Ghost Congress organized by the Redeemed Christian Church of God that prayer is the panacea to the country’s present challenges.”

The report continued: “Jonathan assured the congregation that he will not give up on doing what was right, adding, with optimism, ‘I have a strong conviction that we shall all overcome our present challenges.’”

You were quoted as claiming that your 2011 election owed to “the efforts of the General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, and the innumerable members of the church, who overwhelmingly supported him.” In your own words, “Two years ago, I was here to seek the face of God and ask for your prayers for the last presidential election. I want to thank God that the victory was made possible through the prayers of Pastor Adeboye and the church.” And the paper quoted more of your words, remarkable (above all) for the misalliance between expression and reality. For example, you boasted: “I am guided by biblical principles of transparency in leadership; government is pursuing the agenda of regaining the trust of the people to foster unity and peace.”

You had come to this year’s congress, you told the congregation, “to pray for signs and wonders in government.” And, lo and behold, one such verbal “wonder” came as you “knelt down before the whole congregation” for a “prayer session.” Pastor Adeboye was apparently so carried away by your presidential aura that he went into rhetorical overdrive. “He is the God of wonders who turns impossibilities to possibilities,” said the good preacher. He continued: “Our concerted prayers for the country and her president will surely turn the tide and restore the country’s lost glory. With our leaders turning to God for wisdom and sense of direction in prayers, God’s mighty hand that delivered Israelites from Egypt and brought water out of the rock would change our misfortunes.”

It was all theater, President Jonathan. And God wants you and others like you to know that Pastor Adeboye was speaking for himself. God is not impressed in the least. Look at the countries that are doing well today; you won’t find their leaders – true leaders, by the way – kneeling before any pastor to hand over their countries to God. Such false, showy piety is the recourse of hypocrites and clueless leaders. Again, God is not impressed.

At any rate, if you were guided by biblical principles, then you would act compassionately towards the teeming populace of Nigerians who – like you in the past – are shoeless, foodless, bookless – and close to hopeless. You would not be spending more than two billion naira building a banquet hall for your Olympian feasts when tens of millions of Nigerian children go to bed each night with hunger ringing rude bells in their empty stomachs. There’s nothing in the Bible that justifies the president feting himself with more than a billion naira in a country where the minimum wage is a crime against the humanity of its recipients.

Those of us in heaven thought we had heard everything – until you claimed to be a practitioner of “transparency in leadership.” We immediately summoned Saint Paul, the resident language expert around here, but he couldn’t decipher your words. Or rather, he couldn’t find anything in your record to justify the phrase. In the end, in his characteristic sense of humor, he concluded that you must be drawing attention to your transparent disdain for Nigerians. Remember how you responded to cheeky Nigerians who demanded that you – permit me to use your words – display “transparency in leadership” by openly declaring your assets? You hectored, “I don’t give a damn!”

To return to a serious vein, here’s the message, President Jonathan. There are no signs or wonders coming your way anytime soon. You want signs and wonders? Make it happen! Create some. Fire the really, really sleazy ministers in your cabinet and hand them over to serious prosecutors. Do it today, not tomorrow, and there would be a nice sign. Slough off the obscene privileges and trappings of your office, roll up your sleeves, and go meet Nigerians in the hovels and shacks where they reside in extreme privation. If you really intend to elevate their condition, go to them and excite them with the zeal of your dream. Inspire them with a vision of real, meaningful change.

Your countrymen and women desire and deserve real leadership; cease serving them the pablum of divine providence. Here are some of the things that your people need and yearn for: good roads, regular, dependable power supply, an excellent educational system, an effective healthcare program, good jobs, the institution of sound moral and ethical values, and a legal system that does not spare the mighty, the wealthy or the connected.

Let me make clear: God is not in the business of building roads, hospitals or schools. He doesn’t build electric power plants. He doesn’t sweep dirt from streets or act as a prosecuting attorney. These jobs are competently handled every day by humans – and in many nations, including those that officially don’t believe in God.

In the coming year, I suggest that you and other Nigerian officials take a retreat. Set aside one week, travel to a secluded location (without cell phones, TV or any other distractions), and meditate. Ask yourself if you have what it takes to be a real leader, not just a self-aggrandized copy. In the end, if you find that you don’t have a clue how to lead, that you must throw your hands up and raise your head to the sky, gazing for signs and wonders, then may I suggest, simply, that you declare yourself ill-equipped for the office you hold? Yes, do for yourself what a boxer’s handlers do when their man is being battered in the ring: throw in the towel.

@DERI, TAKE OUT IGBO, SS SHALL GET ONLY 1% FOR DERIVATION

@Deri,
Calculate for any goodies from Nigeria for your part of Nigerdelta at the exclusion of Igbo assistance, such goodies cannot come. So your tirades against Igbo are the worst things you are doing to yourself and your people. Take note Deri, any day Igbo goes out of count in Nigeria, southsouth oil producing areas must be forced to receive much more less or nothing from derivation. You are not even sure to have the present 13% any time Born To Rule retakes power under the present rigged political structure and unitary government. This is why people are shouting on GEJ to water the grounds for political reforms in Nigeria NOW! But he does not seem to get it - and you too, Deri.
Research: who and who stood firm against increase in derivation for oil producing areas at OBJ's NPRC.

@Kool: Pray not to invite the neighbourhood joker here

But Kool don't you think it's better to be with Deri than Akpos1, the neighbourhood joker.

Sometimes I keep wondering whether he's a kidnapper or a reformed militant. He's always talking about war, self-defense, military training, AK 47, IEDs, explosions. RPGs, deaths, fire, synchronized magazines, bomb pellets, etc.

Deri it's understandable. May be he's doing it to pay the bills. But this one, he's another thing entirely. Can you imagine the other time he was giving Dimeji Bankole's address & encouraging kidnappers to go there.

Pls, don't invite that one here.

@Kool: He's the proverbial cat with 9 lives

I can't stop laughing so tey I had to go inside room to laugh my head off. This is the best forum I've had in 2012. I'll bookmark it.

So Kool, you mean it has now resorted to infighting. They better beware, or this internal strife will derail the war effort & scuttle the never-ending pre-nuptials.

He has taken on a manageable pie b/c somebody spying on the Nign side had told him you've a hidden card (Gen. S..., the one who made the ND militants ice cream eaters), & would unleash him if things aren't going your way.

He's treading carefully. You know, the other time when it got so hot he had to run to Nig. The strategic wayo here is to leave an escape route in the event that...

But seriously, I thought this guy was completely buried only to see him bounce back. This dude is a survivor; he never gives up.

Like a true he-goat, he always gets the job done. He'll be a great loss to the RESOURCE CONTROL ADVOCATES. For that, keep tolerating.

That is a working President

Mr Anonymous, there is nothing wrong for a working president going to church.But, Goodluck jonathan is NOT a working presido. There lies the issues. He should throw in the towel himslf now. Does president Jonathan have any personal relationship with God? If not, what then is he doing in the church?

RE: The LAMENTATIONS & the RETURN of the neighbourhood he-goat

@Shaka dZulu, thank you for the official conferment of the title of the "SR Neighbourhood he-goat" on Deri. He has just affirmed it with the return of his meeeeh...meeeeh cry now directed at the SE folks on SR. So it means that "The United States of SS & SE" is after all a ruse and wild imagination of akpos1, the SR neighbourhood joker.

Deri would have surprised me if he failed to return even if it is as strategically done. The he-goat is a very stubborn animal and so Deri has only behaved true to DNA type. Deri reminds me of the village he-goat that was a nuisance in my childhood. Flog the he-goat as many times as you could and it never failed to return until sadly it was run over one day by one "bolekaja".

Yes time indeed will tell as 2015 approaches and GEJ begins to look for support all over. Deri will be on his own, used and discarded like toilet tissue. He would be run over by the same Ijaw politics. There will be gnashing of teeth for the he-goat.

@ Deri : My Zik vs Your Zik . The Problem with lies is

@ Crumbie Deri :
Fooool. See how you've cornered your Zik with your stupid lies? If my Zik didn't build any schools in our old Brass Region, which shool did your Zik attend "shoeless" as he claimed? The problem with lies is the liar often forgets the last lie! You indicted your client with that foolish attempt. Olodo. Today, Azazi was laid to rest in borrowed tomb in faraway Yenagoa bcos your Zik couldn't build a single road leading to the deceased enclave as Governor of Bayelsa. And, did the courts also order UNN students to vote Adaka Boro President of Students Union? Fact is, Boro was a sell-out after getting educated by Ibos. Likewise Wiwa! Ungrateful Aborigines. Alex Ekwueme built Abuja! ...and a Hotel in Every state capital as VP. Name just one achievement of Dr. Dumbo in all his public service drunken life! A Clown Prince who bolted at the sight of Lady Turai. That was the cue Nigerians missed. Pour yourself more ogogoro. Pena!

The LAMENTATIONS & the RETURN of the neighbourhood he-goat

"You think a man who was almost killed for renovating a very small church... would not be destroyed should he attempt to expand the East-West road?"

Weak argument!

There's self-pity & resignation here. You're showing a sign of being tired. Is it b/c the 'tripod thing' is in a dustbin, or b/c all the RED HERRINGS were destroyed by the grandchildren of the tri... um uhm uhmm.

You're down D. Throw in the towel: or do you still got some fight in you? 1, 2, 3,...

ONLY TIME WILL TELL!

**

THEN, D FIRES BACK:

"...name one sec. sch. or road that Zik & Okpara built,... (or) one health centre they erected in the entire ND?"

"Awo... did not erect the first uni. in the SW in any Ijebu village. It was to Ibadan & Ife he went!"

That's the way to fight men! You're not cowed. You're now attacking like a true strategist, not throwing those wild punches.

Like the WWF's Undertaker, you never die D!

Will they finish you, or will you bury them?

We're waiting..

nothing wrong with president going to church

The prediction of the sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, that an Ijaw man would rule the nation was brought to fruition by what many observers see as a divine intervention. The President, in appreciation of that reality, has continuously knelt before men of God for prayers in front of the camera. Across the states, divine intervention is also dictating trends of politics. In one fell swoop, the death of Governor Ibrahim Patrick Yakowa poured cold water on the boiling political water of Kaduna State. The rampaging Northern Kaduna people suddenly had to sheathe their swords. The new governor, indeed, acknowledged the God factor as his confession confirmed.In Taraba State, Governor Danbaba Suntai, who was the ultimate godfather on the 2015 race, is now temporarily out of the scene. His exit has ruined or uplifted political careers. His injury is now either a blessing or a curse to some groups and political forces in the state.

Zik of Afrika in 1954 vrs Zik of d jaw nation in 2011

I would have been crying myself to sleep daily, over the alleged short comings of Jonah by d ethnic groups Okey often assembles here from Enugu, to chase Jonah, if those of us from the former east, can with pride look at the records of our past leaders and say with a sense of history in our mind that. they left a united 9ja 4 us! At least we know Awo is an Ijebu man! He did not erect the first university in the SW, in any Ijebu village. It was to Ibadan and Ife he went! No Yoruba man, from the SW was ever denied admission into any of these premier universities. But Isaac Boro had to go to court 4 him to be eligible to contest elections into the senate of the UNN. So why should one be shocked to see the usual tribal leaders who misled Buhari, bear their regional fangs on Jonah!Theirs was even opportuned to learn under great minds like Nkrumah of Ghana! Yet left us with nothing-Not even a cure 4 our 53 yrs old cancer.

@Wahala: 100 gbosas to you !

@Wahala

U said "Dumbo is useless even to his mother for letting his brother Meni drink himself to death"

You had me in stitches reading this ! 100 gbosas to you !

The Deri fool claimedhe does not mind his generation to come serving the likes of Oronto, Tompolo, Asari, Jonathan and I say a big AMEN to that. May his family end on ruins !

The first home of Awo was the church

@OSITA DIOKA and WAHALA-happily both of u are Ibos-So u dont need any tutoring to know that Bayelsa state as it is presently constituted, was first placed under the control of Zik by the Brits. All I ask u do is to name one secondary school or road that Zik and Okpara built when that zone was in the former eastern region-at most one health centre-they erected in the entire Niger Delta-Again show us the legacies that Alex Ekweme left in the whole of d South east, as VP to Shagari? At least he was there for 4 yrs-Only achievement was his Modus Hotel in Owerri! Some of u come here to open the mouths u rent daily to appease the fulanis cause u think its by so doing that u can become relevant to the lip services paid to the promise of u being made the VP to Buhari again by Ibb! Did Yara Adua and Buhari not seek divine help in the same church?

For those that have ears, let them hear! (1)

Psalm 113 is for year 2013. Psalm 112 was fro 2012 where God said those that are righteous will be blessed for many generations. It is harvest time in 2013. Whatever you sowed in 2012, 2013 is the harvest time.

I implore Nigerians to closely watch 2013.

This is the year that the Power of God will be SUDDENLY visited on Nigeria. Take NOTE and ACKNOWLEDGE that YOU HEARD IT from FiReClOuD OfGoD in SR, FIRST . May Wada and all the others from Federal to State to Local Government going through health challenges recover enough to see the expression of his wrath on the wicked and his love for the trampled in Nigeria in 2013!

Patience is a different woman today. She should let her husband know that his message to the people is clearly embedded in Psalm 113 for 2013.

For those that have ears let them hear!

Deri is an irritating fool

Deri should learn simple manners. He abuses and insults everybody. The fact that past leaders have failed us, is no justification for GEJ to also fail. Deri, you should be ashamed by your utterance, be civiled and objective. You are painting Ijaws people in bad light. I know some of them to be intelligent and reasonable. Deri you should shut up your mouth if you have nothing to say.
The fact is that GEJ is a monumental disaster, an agonizing error that Nigerians must not make again, he, indeed, needs deliverance but certainly not from Adeboye. And if Adeboye does not take his time his romance with GEJ and other rotten politicians wil earn him God's anger, he too must repent and speak truth to power.

The CAGING & EXORCISM of the neighbourhood he-goat

Haha. I can't stop laughing today.

This is the greatest of all tackling.

I've never seen DERI cornered like this Absam man did. He has completely disarmed him. Even the 'tripod theory' suffered some bruises and a TKO.

@Absam, @Wahala, @Tundwmash, @Kenny, @ Kool, @Lingual well done to all of you.

D, if your Oga had known he shouldn't have stated this babalawo visit.

The West & North have now given a carte blanche for the development of the SE & SS.

The clue is given if you're clueless. So don't ever complain again.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD HE-GOAT IS NOW SECURELY CAGED.

OUT-SOURCING PRESIDENTIAL RESPONSIBILITIES TO GOD-JONATHANS WAY

when a President seeks to abdicate his responsibilities and in a most ridiculous manner attempts to out-source his duties to God,we Nigerians begin to wonder if this man has not thrown in the towel.We all know God to be merciful but that applies to repentant folk not politicians who are busy looting and pillaging the commonwealth of the suffering masses of Nigeria,the only help they can get in their unrepentant orgy of looting is from the Devil.
God only helps those who help themselves,our President and his confused establishment are presiding over the second most corrupt Nation on earth,yet they claim to be more religious than the Pope,they are all billionaires and multi-millionaires through heartless looting and impoverishment of the masses,if only they could save us the insult of using God's name in their despicable trade.

This Okey guy must be a very

This Okey guy must be a very sad man. I can tell he gets extremely aroused by reporting perpetual negativity. Okey it is true that our country is in trouble and that our leaders are corrupt. But how is your unrelenting message of pessimism helping? You've been a critic for many years now, what difference have you made? You're criticising the government but Okey who did you vote for last elections? Did you even vote?

Do you plan on spending the rest of your life as a critic or do you plan to offer and enact solutions at some point? I don't understand, this Christmas you won't even let us rest in peace. I don't think you can claim to love this our country more than any of us here so please calm down and think abit deeper about how you can make a difference. As opposed to this tirade of drivel readers of Sahara (who I must say are mostly very ignorant) have become used to. Happy 2013, good things to come.

Azazi will be buried in Yenagoa...@ Deri : Why?

Because Dumbo as Governor did not build a single road linking Aborigine enclaves to Yenagoa. Yet, Crumbie Deri comes here to blame even the stars for not shinning bright enough over the SS. They have a Ministry, NDDC and 13% oyl egunje sunk into alcohol and women. Deri is a gutter dweller who would say anything for crumbs. A career fool. Dumbo is useless even to his mother for letting his brother Meni drink himself to death. Again, Deri blamed the "Tripod" for that negligence. That a whole General will be buried in a "foreign grave" among strangers because his town is inaccessible to humans is a huge disgrace the fools can't see. No use watering stone. Deri is brain dead. Aro! Dumbo is an effigy of disgrace to humanity. A "tragedy-in-progress" - (cr. Okay Ndibe)

@Deri : There's no wedding ceremony for you to gulp ogogoro, Ibos don't marry "Osus" and "Ohus" from Papa New Guinea. Jasper Boro made sure of that. To us, you are HIV-positive. Ebola. Drunkards!

DERI IS NOW DESPIRATE

IT is becoming obvious that Deri may loose his blogging contract or his request for pay rise from Aso Rock has not been approved. Anyone reading his most recent comments would notice that he's resorted to abusing everyone and also expressing his doubt in the SS & SE nation seperation. Poor Deri, I am disappointed to tell you that ABSAM is NOT TUNDEMASH, just as Deri is not Jonah.

Deri is just like your clueless Jonah, your time is up. We've hard enough of your pass the buck arguments. We are waiting for you to tell us if the petroleum price will increase on 1st of January 2013; Jonah year of wonders.If you can tell that means you are now a toothless dog.

Both Adeboye & Dumbo are Hypocrits ...Evil Doers!

"I am guided by Biblical principles of transparency in government" - Dr. Dumbo (lies unlimited)

I hated Dumbo after that first foto of him kneeling derogatively before a fake pastor. I knew then everything about him is fake; his shoeless stories, Ph.D and feigned humility. Dumbo is an evil jinx from the Ota monster. A mugu with a badge. A moron! A clown who refused to decalare his assets to claim the above quoted and still got prayed for proves it was staged "theater" alright. Naijas won't be fooled twice. RCCG, Scientology, etc, are not churches, they're Cults where Chief Priests like Oyedapo, Adeboye, Ashimolowo, Oritsejafor exploit their "victims" using evil mixture of magic and the Bible. "Exoteric Religious Practices" aka Baba Alawoism! They're Satan's acolytes, All Hell bound !

@Okay Ndibe : You could've done a lot better by contrasting Dumbo's fake christianity with his Gangland running of the most fraudulent government in Nigeria's history. No Respect !

DERI IS A BLINDFOLDED STUPID IDIOT!!!

@DERI! I want to believe DERI is on the pay role of GEJ. Your idiosyncratic, sycophantic and myopic reasoning which has shown your strength of stupid character over time has clouded your sense of thought. I dislike it when someone is tribalistic, or vote along religious line... You feel you are intelligent and have sense of history, but you are not. You can't even string two sentences together correctly, and you have the effrontery to insult a detribalized, unbaiased and a renowned journalist in the person of Okey Ndibe, who is grounded in the use of English language... Stop writing because you don't know how to write!

RE: DERI, LISTEN TO ABSAM: LET GEJ DEVELOP SS, SE, It's FAIR TO

@Kenny, nice suggestions for Deri to ponder on but as you can read from his rejoinder, it's not worth the effort. Deri thinks like a robot as far as issues on GEJ are concerned. Deri is programmed to blame GEJ's inadequacies on the failures of GEJ's predecessors in office especially Buhari (the only honest one) rather than focus on what GEJ should do to radically improve the country especially the ravaged SS that had been neglected.

GEJ reminds me of His Master's Voice (HMV), a painting created in 1899 by Francis Barraud, of the dog Nipper listening to a cylinder phonograph. GEJ like most of his predecessors is a lap dog who must only listen and heed his master's voice except he wants to get lost. GEJ was put in Aso Rock to listen and bid the dictates of his masters made up of powerful oily ex-khaki boys and bloody overnight civilian billionaires. Forget about Deri who is a mere hungry he-goat just crying meeeeeeh meeeeeh on SR.

@Deri: Has Jonathan used his loot to develop bayelsa ?

@Deri

Moron, u keep hallucinating about Tundemash, Buhari, Awo, Gani and Obama while u sideline issues.

Like others on this forum have said, IBB stole and developed Niger state .... what has Jonathan and others done with their loot aside building mansions in Abuja ?

@DERI: SS & SE CAN DO LITTLE OR NOTHING WITHOUT THE WEDDING

@Deri, the southsouth and southeast can do little or nothing on their individual basis without the wedding you reluctantly said you wouldn't mind attending. It is clear. If outsiders continue to succeed in using divide and rule tactic to create division among the two groups, sorry. You do not believe the east-west road is part of the divide and rule plot? Look deeper. The eras of Zik and Odilli are gone. Through votes, Jonah has already received the backing he required from the SE and SS. All that he needs to realize is the enormous powers invested in his office, not visiting babalawos. Let him use the powers and change the face and politics of the Nigerdelta, let him use the powers to make former eastern Nigeria recover completely from the civil war. After Jonah's years as president, militants taking up arms again in the ND may not have anymore sympathies; SE cry of marginalization may no more draw sympathetic ears.

U think a man who was almost

U think a man who was almost killed for renovating a very small church not even up to the size of a 40 footer container, in his village in Baylesa would not be destroyed should he attempt to expand the east west road? Did 9jas not warn Gowon against the building of the east west road-that it was an impossibility when late Dappa Biriye and Spiff mutted the idea? what we need do in 9ja is to split period! I dont mind attending the socalled south east-south south wedding ceremony-but have we not been there b4? What was the result in d Niger Delta? When abacha made moves to create Bayelsa state-the Ijaw nation said the capital should be at Ahoada-cause there was nothing in Yenegoa which Zik controllled for decades. It was Odili who mobilized traditional rulers from ahoada and Rivers to warn Abacha against the creation of ABAYELSA STATE-Jonah can do his best 4 both d SE and SS, if and only if we give him our backings-

DERI, LISTEN TO ABSAM: LET GEJ DEVELOP SS, SE, It's FAIR TO ALL.

DERI, let GEJ develop south south and southeast, the same way past northern leaders you seem to begrudge provided infrastructure in the north. Nigerians shall not grumble over it. That's why they said in 2011: let's vote someone from the old southeast of Nigeria to lead. If Jonathan now commits so much of oil resources to make Portharcourt and Calabar seaports second to none in Nigeria, no Nigerian shall grudge him. If GEJ uses bridges to link most of the villages in the southsouth today, no Nigerian shall begrudge him for that. If Jonathan commits oil resources to make Enugu and Portharcourt international airports the best international travelling hobs in Nigeria this time, no Nigerian shall grumble. If Jonathan makes realizes second Niger bridge now, no Nigerian shall grumble. If GEJ systematically reverses the unequal representation between the north and south at the NASS through merging or creation of new states, few Nigerian shall grudge him. Let GEJ wake up before it's too late.

@ Tundemess, U are a disgrace

@ Tundemess, U are a disgrace to the teachers who taught u from primary school to the university level. U have a very poor sense of history also! Blaming Tompolo and Asare Dokubo over the failure of resource control project? U must be sick-if not the duo u mentioned who else is more qualified to obtain contracts in the oil industry? Is it dangote, Adenuga, or Uba. Okey is just penning his thoughts on these watery issues to deceive gullible 9jas-into blaming Gej for all our short-comings since 1914-14 leaders ruled us b4 Johan. What were these heads of state, doing while in power? Watching Zuma rock? @resource control in 9ja was 100% according to the 1954 constitution-that is what Awo used in developing the SW. But brought down to zero% when oil export started in 1960! Where was tompolo and asare Dokubo in 1954, in abuja abi!?

TUNDEMESS the lost and found he goat of buhari

@ Tundemess, U are a disgrace to the teachers who taught u from primary school to the university level. U have a very poor sense of history! Blaming Tompolo and Asare Dokubo over the failure of resource control? U must be sick-if not the duo u mentioned who else is more qualified to obtain contracts in the oil industry? Is it dangote, Adenuga, or Uba. Okey is just penning his thoughts on these watery issues to deceive gullible 9jas-into blaming Gej for all our short-comings-Balewa, Zik-Ironsi-Gowon-Murtala, 0BJ, Shagari, Buhari, IBB, Abacha, Shonekon, abdulsalam, Obj, Yara Adua all ruled 9ja.14 of them ruked us b4 Johan. What were these heads of state, doing all this while? @resource control in 9ja was 100% according to the 1954 constitution-that is what Awo used to transform the SW. But brought down to zero% when oil export started in 1960! Where was tompolo and asare Dokubo in 1954? Mumu in abuja abi!?

Absam-aka tundemess what has changed in 9ja since Nzeogwu 66-

Even a donkey will not reason the way u do. The problem with Okey is that he is ashamed of being called a black dirty smelly nigger period. 9ja is over 52 years old- How old is the administration of Jonathan? Did animals like u not know that we did not have the good things of life, such as light, water, electricity and roads, b4 Murtala Mohamed lied to us via justice aguda-that we needed a new FCT? Could the money wasted on abuja not have given us all the necessities of life? The answer is yes- The likes of Okey said sack late Azazi and GEJ did to appease his regional brain! Has the removal of late Azazi helped to reduce the ongoing murders by Boko Haram? Over 55 trillion Naira passed through the leaking fingers of our past regional leaders and u are asking me to clap while Okey insults the less than one year old government of Jonathan? I am not that mad!
