Political Appointees, Who and who should Buhari Consider?

The time for behind the door canvassing is near finished as the transition committees must have near finalised their list of possible persons to work with the new Government.

The people selected to work with Buhari will determine the success  or failure of the government, against this unrealistically high expectations of the people.

In my wildest dreams, I wish, my wishes become horses so we all can ride and gallop on.   The people I hope to see with Buhari include, in no order or priority, Prof. Tam David West, I have respect for this gentle man who will not be stopped from telling the world the Nigerian Petroleum Industry can do better and at a much lower cost even now in our days.  He does not have many admirers in the industry, but can do much better than the so many come and chops that have been paraded of late.

Prof Pat Utomi, with his Gang and several attempts at the top, he has garnered and is a store of contemporary knowledge useful for the uplifting of our nations, educational, industrial and economic sectors of our nation, thanks to the PAN African University Crew.

Prof Oluremi Sonaiya, This Lady is one that has surpassed our Mother of female aspirants (Mama Sarah Jibril).  She has brought KOWA Party from the silence of extinction to at least a near 35% recognition nationally.   I see in her a Gender balancing representative that can stand the like of Hilary, Susan Rice, Magdalene Al-bright and the lots.  As the government is of able persons inclusion and not party rewards, she should be given a chance to showcase our femininity with a literate sense of reason and purpose( not like what we have been seeing in the past, comedies of the 1st families).

Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, The gains of the elections and peace in the African Continent especially has the direct and indirect diplomatic inclusions of this father of ours.

Abike Dabiri a woman leader of repute, a mass mobilizer and down to earth leader.  An ambassador of women that will carry the girl and boy child along.  She paid her price during the electioneering season.

Dr Ibrahim Yakubu Lame, a reason for some major successes of APC in Bauchi and the North East.  A founding element of APC, believer of human development and a voice appreciated by the masses.

The list will not be ended without persons like, Ayo Aderinwale, the Chief Executive of Africa Leadership Forum, a sage of African Affairs like no other and human developer of repute.  Patriotism and loyalty graciously radiates from Ayo without stress.

Idi Faruk Snr, a strategist of repute and mass mobilizer.

Where will I place persons like Olu Falae; Prof Akpan of an  ECOWAS Monetary institution; Chris Anyawu, if he not tired; Prof. Akinyemi; Mr Tom Maiyashi of the MAMSER fame from Kaduna State; General Jaafaru Lawal Isa, one time Kaduna State Governor; Col. Dangiwa Umar; Gen. Dambazzau a one time COAS; The Military Medical General that created a blood transfusion kit some years ago; Ms Bala Usman; Dr Oby Ezekwesili; Bar. Solomon Lalong; Shehu Sani; Bar Chive Kaave of the former BCC Gboko, to mention just few.

It is a wish I hope at least some will come true.  Nigeria will need us to stand with our elected person and make a success out of this coming Government.  God bless Nigerians and Nigeria at last.

Still South Africa…..

South Africa, is still to react as expected by the continent and affected nations on the issue of the ill treatment meted on persons of other nations.

What ever name it is called, the inhuman treatment of man to his fellow man is unacceptable.  We stand our grounds complimenting the Nigerian National Assembly, both Senate and House of Representatives, we join our voices with their demanding a more genuine visible reaction and remedy to stop the destruction of lives and properties.

It is our belief, that Zuma’s economy has not felt enough pressure to stand and stop the killings immediately, political diplomacy where the ambassador is talking of the age of persons as ones who did not know the contributions of Africans to South Africa is unacceptable.

Am sure this will have been less chaotic if Mandela was still alive.   How can we absolve a monarch and a near kin of the President Zuma family as inciters of the hate?

We still believe and are of the opinion that the National Assembly resolve will see a faster resolve on the issue if:-

1.  DSTV – Multichoice is officially suspended from the Nigerian Airspace, even if for a while.

2. Invite back home the Senior Nigerian Diplomats in South Africa.

3. Suspend the South African Airlines from doing business in Nigeria.

4. Suspend MTN and all allied South African companies doing business in Nigeria

5.  4, will affect the likes of Shoprites and Games, Protea Hotels, Southern Sun Hotels and other construction, power companies in Nigeria.

6. Suspend the issuance of Visa to all South Africans coming to Nigeria and revoking some of the high profile work permits.

7. If the xeno or afro phobia continues, then request South Africa to close their embassy from our land.

Unborn Nigerians contributed resources untold to the freedom of South Africa;  Nigeria is one singular country that contributes over 50% of profits for most south African companies outside their country.

Why should we not be treated as kings in south Africa?

How I wish Nigerians will learn, because, not long ago, after Nigerian soldiers lost their lives and Nigerian resources to bring peace to Liberia / Sierra Leone, the nationals of those countries used machetes to kill and amputate Nigerians because Lebanese business men incited the locals that Nigerians have stolen all their businesses.

Ghana of recent decided to place a very high monetary tax on Nigerian businesses in Ghana, because they say Nigerians are taking over all their businesses.  Now South Africa is not hiding, it’s hate on the same Nigerians in their country.

We need to make an example to show the world that life of Any Nigerian at home and Abroad, is worth the Nigeria’s standing still till he/she is /are rescued from the shackles of such ills.

Thanks to Prof. Akinyemi, Abike Dabiri and the so many highly placed Senators, Honourable members of the House and Nigerians for lending their voice.  May see more and hear more stand up and say no to such evil.

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, will do himself more good taking one of his last decisive actions that will place him on a much higher pedestal, doing something spectacular to show the world we will protect and stand by our own.


South African Product Boycott……

As a person,

I have just removed my MTN GSM simcard, I have replaced it with an Etisalat.

….. It is a personal resolve to have South Africans stop killing other Africans and destroying their businesses.

Join me if you care……………

…………….. The more the merrier!!!!!

South Africa – An African Issue needing an African Solution.

Going straight to the point, Africans stood, spent and died to see that South Africa is free from Apartheid, now the  same people liberated are showing the ones that fought with and for them that their taste now is for African blood.

Solutions are being sought diplomatically, slow and maybe sure, but that has not helped in the past and definitely not enough.

What am I talking about, we the people of Africa, beginning from Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Egypt Ethiopia and all others, must stand as one and take an action that has nothing to do with our slow Governments, but our lives.

If we can:-

1.  Call South African Airlines and cancel all flight reservations till something is done, Nigerians did it to British Airways and it worked.

2. Unplug DSTV / Multichoice decorders from your systems, and migrate to some other satellite channels. Call DSTV/Multichoise to cancel unused subscriptions.  Especially in Nigeria, that they are raising tariffs anyhow, even when courts tell them not to.

3. MTN GSM: remove your sim cards, use other services, Glo, Airtel, zain, expresso, vodafone, Tigo, Etisalat, Moov, Telecel, Econet, Netone, Zamtel, Africell, Orange and post paid subscribers should call MTN offices and cancel their subscriptions.

4. Call in all South African Hotels in your country, from Protea, Southern Sun, and all other South African Hotels, cancel your reservations from them.

5. Games and Shoprite stores, should be boycotted by all.

6. Stay away from even calling South Africa on your phones for a week, call other customer support stations instead.

I assure you, if this is done, on the third day, President Zuma will be sweating in his Air-conditioned ‘Swimming pool’ and office.  The Ambassadors of all African Countries will not be able to sit still in their homes and offices.

We will not retaliate by burning down their business structures and send all south africans (black and whites) back to south africa, but let us stay away from anything south africa for a while and see.

There is the dare need for Africans to stand and tell this our brothers, that we cannot but do with each other.

The Government of Zuma should either reprimand the traditional rulers and leaders who are instigating the populace or they will soon have Africans taking South African Tribal Lords and citizens to the ICC.

If this is allowed to continue, the hurricane in the Maghreb, that is still being managed will be small in nature, because this affects all of us Africans, directly and indirectly.

One week avoidance is all we are asking for………….

…… The corporations will force the Government of South Africa to do the necessary to curb this nonsense, as borders are eroded for a one world future, it is an issues that is so senseless.

May the struggles, sweats of our Heroes past not be reduced to nothing, by the unpatriotic few bringing discord.
