A healthy dose of pessimism

In Why I'm Not Proud To Call Buhari My President, Femi Aribisala discusses the flaws in the March/April 2015 elections especially that the distribution of voter cards / PVCs and PVC-accredited voters, and in the first place of census figures, is rigged.   
He also discusses the limitations of the Buhari product that has been advertised as having answers to security problems and economic problems.  Why has the incoming president not repented from, apologized for, his undemocratic past?

Essentially, a lot of ink has been spent on the bright side.  If you want to think on the dark side of the 2015 elections and the victories of the APC party and presidential candidate, read the longish article.

No more.


Enough! with the religious crises.
KhalaS, no more, Boko Haram torment.
Tired of bombs, tears, and death.
Peace and progress only.

Oooh, what a little bullion can do

This is how Nigerian girl and grandma, Folorunsho Alakija became one of the 1,000 richest people and one of the 100 most powerful women in the world:
  • she made dresses, we don't know how many; 
  • she came to lead an oil exploration and production business; and 
  • since God deserves all the glory, she became a born-again Christian.  
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isabel_dos_Santos
I hope she paid the press for this asinine generous biography.

The ability to consistently wear spooky make-up is also inspiring to certain women.  Powerful, inspiring, beautiful - these words have come to mean the opposites perhaps?

Forget about PDP and APC and presidential candidates for a minute and listen...

The UBA story: some of us said well, you can't change the country politically, there is a military government in power...but Babangida has given opportunities; so why don't we take a large national institution and see what we can do about changing it and making it better...bringing all those people together was what I was proudest of. And it convinced me, that what I have always believed...you can bring people together from wherever and have them work together and forget their ethnic background;
Extended interviews with Hakeem Belo-Osagie
On Electric Power: There is a fundamental difference between telecoms and power, which makes power more complicated. [For power, we have gas supply, generation, transmission, and distribution all run differently] and for the whole system to succeed all four have to succeed.

On Refineries: There are some countries that can do state institutions, and they do them well. We don't.

On Billionaires: I'm very much against [the] notion that the higher you're on the Forbes' list the more respected you should be.
