Wikileaks said a lot this week about Nigeria, her politicians, its governance, elected officials and 3 PDP presidency eras. The week confirms my belief that everyday news is just what government wants people to hold onto, the decay in the system is as rotten as the age she claims to be.
Obasanjo was financially thinning out till he came into and left presidency, we hear of how $1/barrel became a daily stipend for the top people in his government. Oil Money! Aondoakaa wasn’t a surprise on corruption and justice impediment. Yar’adua desired a clean government only that his wife ran deception under his nose.
The shocker? ‘Okonji Iweala who by the guise of consultation fees reportedly found her brother capable of $50million expertise to naija. It’s not my business to debase or prove her integrity, my business? To say there is no fire without smoke. Sansui Lamido, he’s always had good intentions for this country, he only needed the opportunity to do so, and he meets 1 of my 5 criteria of leadership qualities.
Bola Tinubu, TB Labs! all Lagos State hospitals contract lab work to this said laboratory. Lagos State construction projects are awarded to his company. He’s the owner of the tax collection company Alpha Beta, National Life newspaper, Continental Broadcasting Service and Bellview Airlines overturned to The Nation Airlines. Is he rich? Yes, but on who’s account?
This week marked my distaste to daily unending stories of corruption and embezzlement, government crackdown, promises and talk, committees of all sorts; assessment then, implementation then, monitoring then, regulation and now National Economic team. How much can be implemented in a 4 year term or is this why we need 6?
