"We steal because you never stoned US for It" - Governor Rotimi Amaechi quoted. (Video)

At a tribute event held in Lagos for late Nelson Mandela, Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, said Nigerians have not shown enough aggression or resistance against stealing, crime and corruption by political leaders. He said that political office holders steal public fund because citizens have not confronted or stoned them (including himself) for the act.
In his word, he said "If you see a thief and you allow him to thief, what do you do?...You have stoned nobody that's why we are stealing." He continued by saying "If you don't take your destiny into your hands, we will go and other leaders will come and they will continue to steal".

Obasanjo accuses president Jonathan of lying, destroying Nigeria & promoting corruption in an 18-page letter.

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo has reportedly written an 18-page letter to president Goodluck Jonathan, accusing him of ineptitude and of taking actions calculated at destroying Nigeria.
According to Premium Times who exclusively obtained the letter dated Monday 2nd December 2013, said the letter is one of the most acerbic letters in modern history.
Excerpts from the 18-pages letter:
Nigeria is bleeding and the hemorrhage must be stopped. He said Mr. Jonathan has failed to deliver on his promises to the Nigerian people, stem corruption, promote national unity and strengthen national security. 
He said in the letter titled “Before it is too late” that rather than take steps to advance Nigeria’s interest and up the standards of living of Nigerians, Mr. Jonathan had betrayed God and the Nigerian people that brought him to power, and has been pursuing selfish personal and political interests based on advice he receives from “self-centred aides”.

The chief of staff to Edo State governor, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon, was called a political prostitute by a Nigerian after he paid tribute to late Nelson Mandela. It all happened when he tweeted a quote about courage by Nelson Mandela; and a fan asked him if it was the type of courage he displayed when 'Edo Widow' was being insulted by the state governor Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Hon Patrick Obahiagbon who happened to be at the scene of the incident didn't react to the news when it went viral, but he was quick to shield himself from the blames when someone attacked him via twitter, saying standing at the scene didn't make him guilty.
In honour of Nelson Mandela, Hon Patrick Obahiagbon tweeted:

Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River State wins 2013 Best Governor Awards.

Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River State has emerged the winner of the Academy for Entrepreneurial Studies’ Best Governor Award for 2013. The award for transformational leadership was bestowed on Imoke for facilitating rapid infrastructural and human development in Cross River State.

At the 4th Annual CEOs Dinner/Awards Nite, held at the Golden Gate Restaurant, Ikoyi, Lagos, President of AES, Dr. Ausbeth Ajagu, said Imoke emerged winner after a verification exercise involving visitation to the 36 states to assess developmental strides of the governors.

The governor, who delivered a lecture on the theme: "Peace as a Panacea for national development", thanked the organizers for the award. He said he was particularly surprised to have been singled out for the recognition.

Human Rights Group demands better poverty alleviation method for Edo widows.

Spaces for Change, a human rights group, has called on state governors to redesign their approaches to poverty alleviation to effectively empower the poor. In a statement reacting to the video, which showed the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, telling a widow, Mrs. Joy Ifijeh, who was trading on the street to 'go and die', the group said the incident showed a huge disconnect between the ruling class and the governed.

The Executive Director of Spaces for Change, Mrs. Victoria Ibezim-Ohaeri, said though commendable, Oshiomhole's gesture of offering the widow, employment and N2m after the incident was "clearly an afterthought, mainly designed to contain the mounting public censure."
"This Greek gift does not in any way address the bigger issues of widespread poverty and street trading in Benin City nor does it serve as an effective deterrent to future offenders. He should instead, seize the opportunity to rethink and redesign the state's poverty alleviation approaches, ensuring that programmes and services that directly benefit poor citizens are put in place. The state should build on the momentum to develop social security and support-based programmes for enhancing access of low-income groups or individuals to credit or other economic opportunities," she stated.

Dutch journalist says Nigeria is filled up with plenty Oshiomholes who are not caught on tape.

Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the Edo widow incident may have become a thing of the past to some Nigerians but the world is not going to forget it in a flash. Femke Van Zeiji, a Dutch journalist working in Nigeria used Comrade Adams as an example to how Nigerian politicians treat their electorates like shit. She added that Nigeria is filled up with plenty Oshiomoles who are not all politicians. 
Oshiomhole incident just caught on tape how politicians think abt their electorate. And Nigerians have and will let them get away with it.
Oshiomhole: rooted in misconception it's ok to treat 'subordinates' like shit. No one criticises u if u bully housegirl, driver, employee...
I'm sorry to say this, but Nigeria has plenty Oshiomholes. They're just not all politicians or caught on tape.
Instead of wasting energy on another teacup storm, think about what TRUE equality among civilians would mean & how it would change Nigeria.
Read her tweets after the cut:

Why i snubbed PDP offer of N250,000 - Mrs Joy Ifijeh - Edo widow speaks out.


She also said she is not ready to be used as a pawn by the PDP on the chessboard of politics, advising the party to give the said money to another widow instead.

She disclosed this during the presentation of her letter of appointment into the Edo State War Against Indiscipline to her by Special Adviser to Governor Oshiomhole on Media and Public Affairs, Mr Kassim Afegbua at the Government House in Benin City.

Watch the video of Gov. Adams apologising to 'go and die' widow in government house.

The video of governor Adams Oshiomhole apologizing to Mrs Joy Ifije, the 'go and die' widow whom he insulted in Benin City. To err is human but to forgive is devine. I'm sure this will serve as warning to the people of the state who can't or don't want to abide by the law, help the governor to help you. Beautifying the state is not a one-man-business, its for everyone to do and for everyone to enjoy. Though the governor overreacted at the beginning but the man is trying but the people are not helping matters. 
Good job Mr Gov.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole apologised to the widow he insulted, offered her N2m & a job. (Photos)

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has offered employment to the widow, Mrs Joy Ifije, whom he insulted last week, asking her to "go and die" while she was begging him to release her seized goods by men of the State War Against Indiscipline for obstructing Mission road in the state capital.

The Governor announced the job offer to the woman in a breakfast meeting with her at the Government House, earlier today, 2nd Dec. 2013. In addition to the job, the governor also offer her a N2 million grant for her to get a shop and trade; her job would be to join the state's War Against Indiscipline in the campaign against street trading and to keep the state clean.

The Governor who again apologised to the widow said 
"when you put your things on the road a vehicle can run into you and they have killed some people like that and that was why I said if you are a widow do you want more people to be widowed? But when I said go and die, that one was said in a fit of anger. And I am really sorry. I want you to join us. We would employ you and pay you salary. You would help us to campaign to other women not to trade on road sides. We should not use poverty as a yardstick. We would also talk to taxi and bus drivers not to block roads when carrying passengers. You will assist me to talk to women and traders not to litter the roads and sidewalks so that people walking and driving can have free road. If they want to park they can park properly so as not to disturb others."

Pot calls Kettle black! Edo PDP diss Oshiomole for insulting a widow & promised to pay her N250,000.

I'm so lol in chinese language...this is the story of the pot calling the kettle black Edo State PDP has released a press statement, condenming the state governor for insulting a widow by asking her to go die out of anger for not respecting the law. In the statement, the Edo State PDP invite the widow to visit the PDP secretariat in the state to receive the sum of N250,000.

For many years PDP ruled the state, they didn't set up an endowment fund for the widows in the state and now they are using the mis-guarded utterance of the governor as their political tools for next election. Isn't it funny that it took the misbehavior of the governor for the PDP to remember the existence of the widow.

"Go And Die" Governor Adams Oshiomole Tells A Poor Widow (Video)

In leadership and governance, there's a place for 'Human face', and no matter the circumstances, widows to the best of my knowledge are integral part of our society and if we don't apply human face when dealing with them, am afraid we are far from getting there as a people. I can't fathom why the Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole will treat this widow like this and even tell her to 'go and die' when she's struggling to provide food for her family. I think it would've been far better to make her pay a fine for her wrongdoing than this humiliation.

One can try to excuse the act of the governor for some gimmicks like 'sacrifices for the greater good of the community' but, the approach and the choice of words by the governor is nothing short of wickedness, callousness, insensitivity and thoughtlessness to say the least. He should be ashamed of himself for uttering such words. He is not expected to say such things to anybody, let alone a widow
And to say he was a former NLC chairman who claimed he was fighting for the masses beats me. Words fail me.

Delta State Government nominates a dead man for House of Assembly’s screening

LWKMD! This one is madness made in naija. I guess they were working towards making the deceased a ghost worker. According to Vanguard,
There was a mild drama, Tuesday, at the sitting of the Delta State House of Assembly, as one of the seven persons nominated to be appointed into Delta State Tourism Board, was discovered to be deceased. 
The executive had sent the seven nominees to the House for confirmation, namely, Efe Afe, Peter Okolotu, Hyacinth Iyere, James Youmu, Amah Agbajoh, Abel Eyube and Joe Morgan. 
However, during the screening, when the fourth nominee on the list, James Youmu, was called up, Efe Afe, who was screened as chairman of the board and a former member of the House, drew the attention of the House that James Youmu had since died even before the names were sent to the House. 
Also, one Mrs. Gift Gomere, nominated for appointment into Delta State Broadcasting Service, DBS, Warri, was sent back when she appeared for screening,for being “improperly dressed,” while another person nominated for appointment into Delta State Rural Development Agency, RDA, Friday Okoh, was also sent back for unruly behaviour, as he was spotted chewing gum while standing before the Mace.

APC politicians plan how to cover up after RIGGING Esan North East LG Election in Edo State. (Video)

Nigerian politicians hoodlums are so dubious that they can go extra length to win rig their elections. The video you are about to watch will shock some people while others who are used to the ways of Nigerian political hoodlums will say 'na their way'. 

Right before the LG election of last month, a chieftain of the PDP in Edo State, Chief Clifford Eineh, raised an alarm over the alleged plans by the APC to rig the council election in Esan North East LGA of Edo State.
In a statement, Eineh said, 
"We are using this opportunity to call on all security agencies to beef up their strategies to avert rigging and manipulations during the council election as scores of strange faces have invaded our communities ahead of the polls. We are more particularly concerned about the security of lives and property across Esan North East Local Government Area, especially the hinterlands like Uzea and several other villages in Uromi. We particularly call on the Inspector General of Police, IGP, the Edo State Commissioner of Police, the Department of State Services, DSS, and other security agencies to rise to the challenge of defending our nascent democracy as we have reliably gathered that there are plans by the APC - led government in Edo State to announce a concocted result on the council election in their favour from Government House, Benin City. Our people shall definitely resist any result that does not emanate from the election."

Orhionmwon LGA Chairman & 12 councillors suspended for abandoning their duties for holiday in Italy.

Hon. Roland Ibierutomwen the chairman of Orhiomwon LGA of Edo State has been suspended from office and all documents in his possession are to be handed to his vice with immediate effect. Hon. Roland Ibierutomwen was suspended along with his vice chairman, secretary of the local government and twelve elected councillors of the local government for abandoning their duties at Abudu for a trip to Italy without following due process.

On wednesday 13th Nov. the angry youths of Oriomwon Youth Congress (OYC) came out to speak and stand up for themselves by preventing the flow of traffic in protest over the corrupt activities of Hon. Roland Ibierutomwen, the L.G Chairman of the Orhiomwon, who travelled to Italy with his wife, daughter, secretary of the local government and 12 elected councillors at the expense of public fund.
