You are too funny indeed. What say you about Buhari and CPC rigging the North with underage voters
You can elect him as the new Sultan or Mohammed since he failed to win in 2003, 2007 and 2011. I guess "third time's a charm" ain't a charm after all.
This is what politics is all about. I know you would have been happy if GEJ lost to any Northerner regardless of whom he/she is, but the reverse is the case. The Presidential elections have been concluded and over. Your choice of candidates have lost, and as long as we both belong to the sham marriage called Nigeria, you should now be working towards nation building. I see the burning anger in you when you speak about the Igbos when it comes to Nigeria politics. You know, it is always easy for non-combatants of a war to constantly second guess the planning, and execution of a war they never even fought in. Meaning, we're all safely tucked away in foreign lands while others are back home bearing the brunt of the mess called Nigeria. I'm glad your a very small minority in the Yoruba tribe that share your views regarding the Igbos. Sorry, I had to go there.
President Goodluck Jonathan just received the Certificate of Return from INEC seconds ago, putting paid to the issue of who won the April Presidential election and on that note:action-smiley-069:
While you claim Yoruba's can't coexist with Igbos, but they proved you wrong by overwhelmingly voting for GEJ. Something to think about.
I am not a fan of GEJ for various reasons, one of them being the sheer waste of money for the so called 50th anniversary
Also the one year he was in office what changed? What did he do?
That aside i do believe He won this election!!!
Were the votes exaggerated? Yes..But not only His.....also that of Buhari..
what of all the underaged kids that were voting in the north?? Why is Buhari not talking about that?
A beg jo ... All i care about is energy, water, education, etc..
How can you say that you KNOW when you haven't got an iota of clue? You are right about me not been for Jonathan but believe it or not, it has nothing to do with his ethnicity, rather, it is owned to his mismanagement and lack of direction but most especially because of the party to which he belongs. You can't have the likes of Obasanjo and IBB as godfathers and expect to do any good. He was the governor of Bayelsa state and yet, that state is one of the poorest states in the country. You can't be aligned with the likes of Bode George, James Ibori, Anenih et al and have any good in stock for the country, it's just impossible!
Lastly, you don't have to apologise for your opinion of me, its absolutely fine because I hold mine of you and we are all entitled to one. Just as a point of correction though, Yoruba is not a tribe but an ethnic group and yes, we are very accommodating and hospitable people as evidenced in Lagos and all parts of the western region. In our land, you will find Hausas, Igbos, Ijaws and many more. We are not bigots and do not hate an entire people because of a handed down tale of betrayal. As for me being angry at the Igbo group, well, I don't have to defend myself because you are allowed to see what you want to see.
Jonathan is an Ijaw man from the SS of Nigeria. He is from the 4th largest ethnic group in Nigeria. Perhaps you weren't aware that the SS is not part of the SE??
Don't be so modest! South westerners are highly intelligent and very enlightened.
Was that budget not already created and passed before Yaradua passed? He had no choice but to carry on because most of the funds were already dispensed.
He did not take power immediately after Umaru Yaradua died and I hope we all remember the circus of Tauri Yaradua. He spent more time fighting the northern cabals who believed that Nigeria's leadership belonged to them and them only. Light in Nigeria has improved, fuel sacristy vamoosed and a host of others. The people resoundingly voted him as their Democratic President last Saturday.
As I have made clear elsewhere, I can't stand Jonathan. I co-sign with Irin that he is directionless. He just drifts to and fro and if he had any promise of doing anything, we should have seen an inkling of it in the last one year. I suspect he's going to waste the next four years of our nationhood. He also lacks integrity for not abiding by the known arrangement they had with the North. It was the North's time to complete another four years (Buhari or Ribadu could have filled that quota) and this will create problems for everyone in future when he would be done stealing whatever's left in the coffers with his gang of unthinking clowns. What did he even do about all the riots and killings in the last one year? Let him prove me wrong and do something.
But he's won this one, however he did it.
Abeg ask Sola to open another thread for this make I floor you with this your nonsense claim.
Nigeria get constitution and I get copy for house for citation purposes. If you get copy of the arrangement paper please post am cause I wan see this arrangement :roll
I didn't make a claim; I stated a fact. If it doesn't make sense to you as you have said above, then please ask for clarification. It is possible that you are not aware of a group of people who speak a totally different language from the Ndigbos or might be misled to the recent addition of 'Azikiwe' to Jonathan's name to entice the Igbos. On the other hand, you might actually know something that I know not, which I would be very happy to be corrected.
We are only on the third page and I would predict that the bandwidth of this site can withstand whatever epistle you are about to unearth.
I await your enlightenment.
We know how he got the name Azikiwe. His birth certificate reads Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ)or are you going to ask for a copy of it The Ijaws are IGBO'S and speak a different dialect of the Igbo language. Ijaw people are from Bayelsa, Delta, and Rivers States within the Niger Delta in Nigeria. Where is Niger Delta?
Ijaw people can be found in Akwa-Ibom, Edo, and Ondo but they all from Niger Delta their indigenous home.
There is a country's constitution and a party's agreement to power sharing. Jonathan contested under the PDP umbrella and agreed to its manifesto.
Power sharing, although not democratic, it was a necessary evil in our country's politics because of our make-up. It is patriotic to see Nigeria as one but the true fact is that we are first and foremost a Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Ijaw, Ibibio et al. Stating this fact does not reduce us to being bigots or prejudiced, it just is what it is. The UK currently is made up of three different countries and a scottish man would eagerly tell you that he is Scottish and would only identify himself as British only for nationality purposes. My point is that Nigeria, constituting three major countries is a very difficult nation to preside over and without agreements such as rotation of power, it is hard not to see developments of ethnic motivated uprising.
By Jonathan backing out on his own agreement, the issue of ethnic divide which we have been able to subdue has now come to the fore and it can only get worse from now. The crack is so wide now, it cannot be patched.
Write this day down. Come 2015 or 2019, if the Igbos do not get to power, I foresee another civil war. Had Jonathan kept to the agreement, the Hausas and Yorubas would have been more than happy to vote an Igbo man but now, because of the backing the Igbos have given the Ijaw man, it can be seen that the Igbos are now using their term.
I don't write epistle and thanks for a lovely award title :roll
Wow! Thank you for the revelation o. Since I am married to an Ijaw woman, I don become Igbo by extension!:bouncy I hope you asked the Ijaws first before making this declaration o!
