When will praise singing end in Nigeria

Nigerians indulge in the act they know best after every election. As long as they will be able to gainer some change on the election day it's enough for them to sing praises for any one that come out victorious. Then from the following day till when another election will be conducted, they will be suffering and smiling in their shanties. Some of them will not even be able to eat two square meal. What a shame. Giant of Africa Indeed. While we wallo and cry in poverty, those who are able to scrabble some changes, sing parises to the high heaven, because of what they could get at that moment. Praise singers! When will all this praise singing end.

Very disheartening

What's happening in our nation called Nigeria is too disheartening. What kind of democracy are we prcaticing. Any how we like let Nigerians window dress, and pretend as if we are moving forward, until the right things are done, we will still be static. A party has the right to conduct primaries, then the winner can contest the real election. But in Nigeria, the reverse is the case. People being hand picked or imposed. How do we think the goal of the state or national will be achieved. True democracy will trive when people choose who they want without influence from any quarters. People only know how to sing praises, but when the tide turn, the same people will also turn with the tide and start to curse the person they were praising. What a pity. Manipulation cause more harm than good.

HE'S TRYING

God will help our president,cos he's trying

I think you should rethink

GEJ does not need to handpick anybody to become the governor of his state, the newly elected governor won as a result of the counted votes of the eligible voters.Hon. Henry S. Dickson is a man of great mind, he is learned and will informed. I think the people of Bayelsa know who is the right candidate for the gubernatorial poll and they have made the right choice. so rethink

Hon. H. S. Dickson merits the post

Hon. H. S. Dickson is indeed the right man for the governorship position,because i believe he understands his home town and his credentials has proven that there is no better candidate for the post.he is a lawyer,a former police officer and two time member of the house of representative,i really give kudos to GEJ for helping him get the mantle to run the election.

Security vote

A big congratulation to Hon. Seriaki, D. Do not share ur Security vote with the PDP members aloneooo. Just one month own is enough for me.

To whom much is given, much is anticipated

Pls let the ACN candidate forget about challenging the victory of Seriake Dickson. He won on a clean note. Bayelsans voted for him because of his personality and not party. Seriake Dickson proved himself to be a worthy Nigerian (Bayelsan) when he was a commissioner and a member of the house. He deserves the victory like the way Mr. President deserves his seat too by defeating Buhari in the Presidential election. Nigerians are civilized; they vote for personality and credibility not party. ACN presented a wrong person in Bayelsa. I love ACN but we lost in Bayelsa, lets accept our fate here.

Seriake Dickson as Governor of Bayelsa

Seriake Dickson is man of intellect and calibre. he has proven himself in all his engagements and years of service as a man ready to serve.

A QUESTION to all

A QUESTION to all NIGERIANS.WHO WILL BE GOOD FOR U? WHO WILL BE A GOOD LEADER TO U? OBASANJO?, NO, YAR'ADU?,NO. WHY NOT GIVE OUR ABLE PRESIDENT THE SUPORT AND PRAY FOR GOD TO GIVE HIM THE GRACE AND STRENGT TO LEAD THIS COUNTRY. JUST AS HON. H. DICKSON HAS BEEN ELECTED AS THE GOVERNOR OF BAYELSA STATE,WE ALL ELECTED AND VOTED FOR THEM, WHY NOT ALWAYS PRAY FOR THEM THAN CITSIZING WHATEVER THEY DO 4 I KNOW THAT PRAYER IS THE KEY AND SOLUTION TO EVERY OF OUR PROBLEMS.

He who Dictates the Piper Dictates the Tune

Bayelsan voted for Seriake Dickson because he has proved himself when he was a commissioner in the state. President Jonathan picked him because he sees him as the messiah to deliver good governance to Bayelsa state. Come 2013, he would win international recognitions/awards as a performing governor.

Handpick?No

Let us try to give a rational and analytical judgement while delibrating on sensitive issues.Dickson will rule Bayelsa State for the benefit of all Bayelsans.He has the experience to man the affairs of the state.He is a practising lawyer,a police officer,two term house of reps member.With the wealth of knowledge and experience he acquire he will make life comfortable for the citizens.

I think we should be real

GEJ does not need to handpick anybody to become the governor of his state, the newly elected governor won as a result of the counted votes of the eligible voters.Hon Henry S. Dickson is a man of great mind he is learned and well informed man. I think the people of Bayelsa know who is the right candidate for their gubernatorial poll and they have made the right choice. we should rethink

The people of Bayelsan have

The people of Bayelsan have decided by going to the poles by voting in the man they fill that can put Bayelsa state in the right the direction of development.It is not all about Mr president hand picking a candidate but making the sure they deliver in transformation agenda.

Let him continue the good work

The election was free and fair,he is the people's choice he is a good man and he knows the best for his people so lets give him the chance to continue the good works he began.

handpicked candidate Seriake Dickson

I believe that he is going to serve the masses very well because he has been in the house of reps twice, he has all the qualities to govern his state and i believe he will carry the masses along.

He that Dictates the Piper |Dictates the Tune

Bayelsans voted for Seriake Dickson because the President believes in him. Every indigenes of Bayelsa have trust in Mr. President, so anyone choosen by him must have pass the text of good character. He was choosen by the our visioned President because he is d best and right messiah to deliver TRUE DEMOCRACY to Bayelsans like the likes of Gov. Rochas, Fashola of Lag, Akpabio of Akwa-Ibom, Oshomole of Edo state etc. He has distinguished himself as man dat can deliver when he was a commisioner. Come 2013, He would be receive international recognition/awards as a man who has delivered. Bet me?

Hon. H. S. Dickson has served

Hon. H. S. Dickson has served Nigeria in so many aspects!!! he is qualified as he has experience in a couple of fields in Nigeria so he definitely can handle whatever situation comes his way. so please......................we don't always have to criticize people even before the first day of service. thanks!!!

Another charade. DumboJona is a complete disaster

Has anybody noticed how characters who are barely literate are crawling all over this site now, all in the futile bid to post phoney messages about how great a democrat our moronic and crooked bro Jona is?. There is no doubt about the origin of such dubious posts. It's the same ugly band of jobless sycophants like the fawning Deri who will stop at nothing in their trade mark boot-licking. The latest selection in Bayelsa was as rotten as they come. The governorship election was rigged the very moment the clueless and sleazy Jonathan deployed his goons in the police, SSS and the army to prevent a key candidate like Sylva from participating in his party's primaries. The corrupt Jega and his useless INEC simply rubber stamped that daylight electoral robbery. Jonathan is a complete disaster.

what with the hand picking allegetion!

I think some people don't really understand that Ebele really stands against election manipulation,we've got this guy that's doing his best but still being frustrated by some,this is Nigeria's chance we should'nt ruin it.

GOOD TO GO

The president has done it again. giving the people of Bayelsa state fresh air. Well people voted for who they want and got it without further delay. THUMPS UP GEJ.

Fair election!

Why even assume that the election was unfair,this guy"Dickson" has served Nigeria in so many ways,as a police man,a lawyer and representative so i don't know why some think he was fixed.New people deserve a shot and he got his.

THE PHOTO SPEAKS FOR ITSELF

..BUT IT IS MISSING THE BANNER SAYING "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED"

TRIBALISM

The people of Bayelsa State have so far shown them selves to be tribalistic and shallow no wonder they are no good intellectually. you people out of lack of confidence like GEJ always think that every criticism is a question mark on your credential. Please grow up, we have left that thinking in Nigeria. If GEJ is good we will know. You cant establish that by your cheap talk and posts.

abia state fuel scarcity

just overnight abia state started experiencing fuel scarcity. is it real or fake? government should pry into whatever the case is and normalise the situation before it gets out of hand. already, the price of transport has gone up by 50%.
check it, gov. T. A.

THERE WAS REGISTRATION

There was another registration of voters in Bayelsa within November 2011 and december 2011, maybe inec did not update that on their websites, but really they carried out another registration for more eligible voters.

GEJ is a man who has the

GEJ is a man who has the capacity to Transform Nigeria into one of the largest Economy in the world, he is also dedicated to fighting corruption. so, if he picks H.S. Dickson it means he knows the wright candidate for his state.
