There is life after election. If You choose to fight or abuse your friends and associates because of election do remember that there is life after election. Election will come and go but those people you fought will remain with you forever. As election drawn nearer so much interests have been vested for that there are so many confrontations and clashes of interests among the people. We shouldn’t allow politics divide us, because whoever you support today may disappoint u in one way or the other tomorrow, simply because he may not necessary meet your expectations. We should always remember that politics is a game of number and is like exam; you either pass or fail, whoever you support may either win or loose. So, this shouldn’t be the basis of enmity between us. I’m worried by the actions of some people unknown to them, hatred will not change anything… we failed to address important issues and end up debating on unecessary issues.
MY TAKE ON BUHARI AND ATIKU
I don’t believe in Atiku but I am afraid of Buhari.
The choice before me is “The bad and the deadly”
IS BURHARI FREE FROM CORRUPTION?
Corruption according to legal dictionary, “corrupt” is a word that may be used to describe something that is tainted, decayed, or putrid. It also describes a person who debased in character, lacking in character, or dishonest. The term corruption is commonly used in modern society to refer to unethical or dishonest to behaviors undertaken by someone who has been entrusted with authority, such people may be elected or appointed officials, clergy or corporate executives.
According to God, corruption is “yet I have planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed; how then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me. Jeremiah 2:21”
Corruption also means evil, decay, and dishonesty.
In my own terms “corruption is when a thing degenerated into a strange form that undermines its original intent.
Corruption is in several Forms
– Bribery, Abuse of due process, Circumvention of the law, Misuse of official position, Conflict of interest, Electoral violations (vote buying, rigging election results). Extortion, Fraud, Influence peddling, Nepotism, Tribalism, Trading in know-how and insider information. Illegal financing of political parties, Revolving Door Effect, State capture, Illegal appropriation (forgery, falsification) Embezzlement, Misappropriation of money, property. Abuse of State funds, waste.
– Collusion, Protecting and covering up events. Abuse of power (intimidation or torture) Manipulation, of regulations, Extortion, Clientelism and patronage (politicians provide material services in exchange for citizen support. Homosexuality, Lesbianism, Prostitution. When you decamp from P.D.P to A.P.C all your sins are forgiving courtesy of Adams Oshiomhole.
In view of the above, is Buhari free from corruption?

We Don’t Know Who Constructed the Giant Broom – APC
Your boss pays you #30,000 per month.
Now let’s assume that you decided to save all without touching a dime, it would take you 36 months (156 weeks) to make # 1million.
(Did I hear you say 3years?)
On the other hand, if you can convince an organisation like Dangote Cement Group to print and supply 5,000 umbrellas to them (to be used as souvenirs) and you make just N200 profit per umbrella, in just one day you must have made # 1million.
What about becoming a billionaire, that is where it gets crazy!
Now, as a senior man, you receive #1,000,000 per month and you decide to save all without touching a dime. In a year, you must have saved # 12million. It would take about 84 years before you can make # 1billion. (Please subtract your current age).
On the other hand, Nigeria has a population of about 200 million people, If you can supply salt to just 12million people once in a month and you make just N200 from each person supplied, in one year, you must have made N2.9billion.
*This shows that to become rich, you have to stop talking to bosses and start talking to clients*.
Divide your SALARY by 30 days and see what you get (i.e. the number of days in a month and see the funny thing about your salary plan).
(1) An average level-12 worker in the state government civil service earns # 60,000.
**** And this translates to #60,000÷30= # 2,000 every day. This is LESS THAN the amount made daily by an AVERAGE HAWKER (Bread seller) in the city.
(2) A freshly EMPLOYED GRADUATE BANKER in most NIGERIAN BANKS earns an average of #120,000 monthly.
***So everyday, you get banking #120,000÷30= #4,000 as the daily value for your work-life. By implication, this is LESS THAN the amount earned DAILY by an AVERAGE DRIVER in the city and in some villages…..
(3) If you are a FRESH GRADUATE EMPLOYEE in some oil companies, you earn an average of #300,000 monthly. So in a day your WORK-VALUE is #300,000 ÷ 30= #10,000
**** This is LESS THAN the daily amount earned by an IRRIGATION FARMER supplying vegetables to Lagos MARKETS, a TIPPER CAR DRIVER supplying sand for three BLOCK INDUSTRIES and CONSTRUCTION SITES just 3 times a day.
———>>>HOPE BY NOW, IT IS SINKING IN, RIGHT?
And when there is an ISSUE in the FAMILY that requires FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, the DRIVERS, HAWKERS and the rest are looking up to you with a WHITE COLLAR JOB.
(4) If you are an NYSC MEMBER, you DON’T need to be told that:
*****#19,800÷30 = #660 is your worth on a daily basis.
I hope you know that PURE WATER SELLERS who own a shop, a pepper soup joint and a small TOYOTA COROLLA car to distribute pure water to five restaurants earn MORE THAN you and WHEEL-BARROW PUSHERS working on contract for three warehouses probably make MORE MONEY than you EACH DAY
We must wake up and be more productive. We should be more proactive, create room for more income and strive to diversify our streams of income.
Someone right now will say this analysis is too ideal to be true but take your time and do it, you will grasp the crux!!!
STOP waiting for the Government or your employer to feed you, feed yourself and help the Government / Employer feed others. That is where we are in this age….
