Mrs Okonjo-Iweala’s interview with BBC, Will Ross on the missing USD$20 billion oil revenue in March 2014 would not be too surprising to any Nigerian, well those who have seen enough to realise our challenges run deep and we can not scratch the surface and be expecting miracle transformation as far as corruption goes. At one point during the interview Mrs Iweala got frustrated with Will Ross as it seems her interviewer wanted specifics about how $20 billion waka comot NNPC safe unnoticed, he’s not going to get that and we all knew it – there is oga at the top to be weary of.

“… Ross, you are British, are you going to come to Nigeria to fight corruption for us…nobody but us (Nigerians) can clean it up.”
That is true, Nigerians are the ones to heal themselves in all their empty shattered places, the quicker we realise this, the better for us all.
The likes of Mrs Iweala are inspiring – it must be frustrating working with people who are not only unfit for purpose, but also have lost all sense of dignity to care for their reputation as leaders.
Postponement of election for six weeks so President Jonathan could have enough time to fight Boko Haram that he failed to defeat since 2010?
GEJ and his team are scared is all.
Presido has exhausted all the main sensational ministers of ‘God’ in the land and people don’t seem to be bothered much – most backfired.
The one I found most amusing was talking about Buhari’s past human rights abuse records when GEJ of today has nothing to show he is any better.
So will 6 weeks make any different to election campaign and safety of the people? Absolutely not. Maybe I am too cynical of GEJ administration but I have seen the same desperation at work in Osun state during August gubernatorial election whereby religion was strongly used to the points that neighbours are resenting one another needlessly, this is just because the incumbent governor happened to be a Muslim so we all waited in anticipation to see whom GEJ would nominate as the opponent.
Then GEJ in his capacity gave us this man – below! The man who despite all his paper qualifications from different universities from around the world learned only one thing that being close to grassroots is synonymous to a lone road side corn eater. Thank goodness he lost the election.
I hope Senator, Dr. Omisore would be nearby to provide support for his Oga at the top – fingers crossed.
