I would like to show some appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from such a predicament. Just after looking out throughout the search engines and coming across ideas which are not beneficial, I believed my life was over. Existing minus the approaches to the difficulties you've solved by means of this article is a critical case, as well as the ones that would have in a negative way damaged my career if I had not come across your blog post. Your primary expertise and kindness in taking care of a lot of things was vital. I don't know what I would've done if I had not come across such a solution like this. I can also at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for your specialized and result oriented help. I won't be reluctant to endorse your web site to any person who requires counselling on this issue.

Idris Kani

Idris Kani- Even you know that you are telling a MASSIVE LIE.(There are more Legislators,senators,ministers,Governors,Special Assistants,Police Commissioners and senior army officers from the north than any of the other regions) I am laughing here and shaking my head at your selective ignorance. When you people ruled nigeria completely i did not hear any of you complain. It is a shame that upon all the Billions STOLEN by your people you guys are still "disadvantaged" that is why you will fight any one who say Federal Character should be thrown into the dust bin. It is a big disgrace for a prince to always cry and complain of hunger when the food in the Palace can feed a multitude of persons.

settlement

wise boy Silver has decided to sort it out here in Nigeria where we all know how it will end, than wait for the British judiciary to be contacted by the oracle of corruption himself JONATHAN.

Response to Idris Kani

Idris Kani, you are a misguided and tribalistic fool. Is the Ministry of Aviation the only Ministry in Nigeria? What tribes are the people heading the ministry of finance? health? defense? justice? works and housing? education? and etc. Factly speaking the issue of the Nigerian government under Johnathan needing clensing is actually a matter of getting mostly the brainless Hausas and Yorubas out of Power because Johnathans godfathers comprise of men of these tribes. We need Hausas, Yorubas and Igbos with brains in government positions driving development. I challenge you to name one of your alleged Johnathan's godfathers that is Ibo???? It is illiterates like you that give your tribe a bad name thinking of tribe first before nationality when it should in fact be the other way round. Compound fool.

Oppressor and the Oppressed

I agree with you wholeheartedly Chiwankpam and as such im responding to you.Im tired of all the rhetorics and everybody's chronicle of the Nigerian situation.We need a concerted effort to displace these thieving so called "leaders".
I once read a book many years ago called "the Pedagogy of the Oppressed",It simply stated what you've stated here-the oppressor has no reason to relinquish power unless the oppresed is willing to take it by force.That is what is needed and required by us,the common people of Nigeria.Once again,thanks for your point of view.

Right Decission

sylva has made a wise decission for submitting himself to EFCC in Nigeria knowing from the past anticident that nothing will come out of Nigeria Judicial system as in the case of Ibori. Very soon Sylva will be set free and will be honoured as usual.

re: god bless you my bros

YOU ARE A NOBODY. SO YOUR REGRETS IS OF NO SIGNIFICANCE

WHAT DID AMBASSADOR OBORO SELL FOR N12 MILLION ?

O boy!It is an open secret in Bayelsa State that Ambassador Felix Oboro was a supplier of white substance to former governor Sylva to snuff.That is why he was always on his way to Nigeria from abroad without any solid reason.N12 million is not a small money.This does not include the looted Embassy money and inflated visa and e-passport payment.EFCC should take note!

where is .......

Where is bankole ?

Na today.

Na today,where is bankole?

This is another mockery , or joke of the Nigerian TypeDemocracy

What is this !!! Another mockery of the toothless bull dog that the EFCC has become !!! We know the outcome already !!!The precedent tells it all !!! Shame !!! Until Nigeria have a system that typifies as the final and fair, unadulterated arbiter of justice , we 'll be licking our wounds and criminals would walk around as men and women of virtue ...Good luck ... a wasted judiciary !!!

We deal with our own thieves.

Our own thieves never walk off free. Nobody responsible for stealing from the Southsouth will live in peace. That is certain. Udaughan, Godswill,Rotimi,Dickson,Imoke and Adams. Please keep your eyes on the ball.

and how many convictions did

and how many convictions did Ribadu achieve?

The efik people have the saying "ediye ino" meaning a beautiful thief, - that is what Sylva is. No amount of dressing nicely and looking calm will make him and the rest of these high profile thieves less of a thief.

This is nonsense! Nigerians no longer believe the hype - 1

Nothing will come out of this, just like the rest of the cases. I have always maintained that the only way to achieve justice in this country is through violence target squarely at those who have at any point stolen from this country and their family members. What happened to Bankole? Nothing! What happened to Ibori in Nigeria? Nothing! What happened to Gbenga Daniel, and all the former Northern governors that were arraigned? Nothing! If ordinary Nigerians want justice, they have to get justice by going after all political office holders and government officials who've held positions since 1999. Judges, in my opinion, have done even more harm to this country than even the politicians, by colluding to share stolen monies. That said, ordinary Nigerians should start killing them and their family members. If you feel cheated from the system, then the next time you see any of them, just shoot as many bullets as you can in their direction.

This is nonsense! Nigerians no longer believe the hype - 2

Their children and wives should also be targeted, because they benefit even moreso from the stolen monies. That is the only way we will get justice; by killing them ourselves. Otherwise, everytime a former governor gets arrested, a judge somewhere becomes a billionaire while Nigerians ignorantly continue to wait for electricity, roads, and hospitals that will never be built because monies that should be used to provide those amenities are the ones stolen and shared between politicians and judges. That is why to some extent, I still support Boko Haram eventhough they've misdirected their anger at poor and innocent citizens. I support acts by individuals or any group that destabilizes the corrupt status quo. After all, who has something to loose or who feels more threatened by anarchy? Its not poor folks who don't have anything; it is rich folks who feel their houses, cars and other physical assets could be destroyed, right?

This is nonsense! Nigerians no longer believe the hype - 3

Did you know that the wealth of over 80% of rich Nigerians can be directly traced to monies stolen from the national coffers through various dubious schemes including contracts? Yes, it is those who benefit from the stealing, which include but not limited to thieving political office holders, government officials, judges, bank managers, business men called contractors; basically anyone who benefits from monies stolen from the treasury is most afraid of anarchy or the type of thing that Boko Haram is doing, and that is why I support and will continue to support anything that threatens them (rich folks in Maiduguri have all run away and that is why poor innocent folks are being killed. If Boko Haram can cathc any of them, no poor person will be killed, as they would have their right targets). So if you want change that will bring genuine development in this country, look for ways to kill this people, otherwise, stop complaining.

Drama: Mr Corruption (GEJ) fighting corruption

Only in Nigeria!!
The Subsidy thieves are flying their jets around freely.
The Malabu oil & co are still sharing their loots.
The pension fund scam scammers are partying.
The East - West road scam is being renewed, I guess another variation is being worked on or is already on GEJ's table for his stupid signature.

So why is Sylva being harassed? Has Dame returned the one she took?

GEJ, carry go! This is how to be a president in Nigeria.

What I can't understand is

What I can't understand is the clamor for resource control by people in these region. If the allocations that were being earmarked. For them were prudently utilized, that region would have turned into a semi paradise. Look at Ibori, Alam, Odili n co have looted. From their people's funds yet these people would still throw red carpets at their sightings that which are indications that you are comfortable with the poverty level.
It's absurd when billions of dollars that are meant for developments are selfishly stashed away by these governors while they are also the ones to lead the hypocritical voices for derivation which to me is totally foolishness.
You guys should stop all these agitation for resource control because the more you have the more you have, the more you loot.

Like it or not Nigeria's

Like it or not Nigeria's president is an Ijaw man, go hang!
