Saraki wishes for more powers, Stop using the name of Lord Uduaghan in vain, Oil Tankers Drivers have their thirst quenched

Saraki wishes for more powers, Stop using the name of Lord Uduaghan in vain, Oil Tanker Drivers call off strike.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki wishes for more powers.

Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki wants you Nigerians to realize that Power pass Power. Power to heal the sick and raise the dead for instance pass power to attend your tribunal hearing with 90 lawyers. Power indeed pass power. Anyway, the Senate President made this known after visiting the president at the villa. Journalists believe his meeting with the president was connected with the suspension of Senator Ali Ndume last week. Senate President said he doesn’t have power to cancel Ndume’s suspension but will table his case before the senate. Far too kind, these politicians.

 

Ex-Delta Governor would like his name be used in better ways than is currently being used by some.

Reacting to claims he had joined APC from PDP, the ex-governor basically told rumour peddlers to go get a life, pointing out that he won’t have any qualms going to court over unacceptable use of his name. Looks like the 4th commandment doesn’t it? One wonders what are the other commandments of Lord Uduaghan. Hmm.

 

“When a crying baby gets what it’s crying for, it sleeps.” huh!

Well, crying oil tanker driving babies seem to have been breastfed as they have called off the strike which started Monday. Reuters reports that the union called off the strike “because the federal government has intervened and promised to look into the drivers’ demands,” according to Charles Eleto, a regional chairman for Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), one of Nigeria’s two major oil workers’ unions. Ask and it shall be given unto you or cry and it shall be given unto you or ask,cry,strike and it shall be given unto you. Your choice.

 

 

Jubilation in Edo state as Edo deputy governor, Mr Philip Shaibu delivers constituency projects to constituents

Apparently, he received the commendations yesterday, during the commissioning of constituency projects he executed as lawmaker. Shaibu represented Etsako federal constituency before he ran alongside the incumbent governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki, in the September 28, 2016 governorship election in the state. The projects include a block of three classrooms each at Eshiebor Primary School, Ofukpo Village in Ekperi, Etsako Central Local Government; Uchi Primary School, Auchi, Etsako West; Esivue Primary School, Ubiane and Igbuku Primary School, Amah.

Happy to celebrate this great feat with the now deputy governor seeing as the unconfirmed reports that reps are paid to execute these constituency projects are exactly that- unconfirmed reports.

Captain Obvious says APC, PDP have failed Nigerians

Delta state Chairman of SDP points out that both APC and PDP have failed Nigerians so you get a feeling he’s just asking for a chance for his own party to waste our time too. “With the 16 years they ruled, we are not where we are supposed to be. We then thought PDP was not the answer to the country’s problems and APC came in and became worse off. APC & PDP “We ought not to be in recession; APC was given the largest economy in Africa but today we are crumbling. APC has to leave for another mega party that has good vision for Nigeria.” He said. And we have heard. Moving on…

 

 

Why Obasanjo locked me up for 8 yrs – Bamaiyi

One of the biggest stories making the rounds right now. Basically Gen. Bamaiyi released a new book and in the book wrote that he was imprisoned wrongfully but intentionally by the civilian regime of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. He claims that this was due to the fear that he was too powerful hence could easily topple the young democracy. He also claims that Chief M.K.O Abiola didn’t die of natural causes and Gen. Abdulsalam Abubakar and Obasanjo have a hand in his death.
