Yorubas have seen the very best of govenance right from pre independence to post independence Nigeria. Chief Obafemi Awolowo who spearheaded the effort to move the western region as first among other regions did it wholeheartedly.
It was in that era that the words were coined. ‘Oselu and ojelu’. Those who govern serving the people against those who govern serving personal interest.
Nationally for over fifteen years, what we got in governance are the ojelus, those that milk the cow dry. What is it they’ve not done?
It is really that bad. The thing is no matter how smart you think you can fool people, you will definately end up fooling yourself big time. They have come to the end of their game. Nigerians are wiser than all the OJELUS.
PDP government apart from the time of President Umoru Musa Yaradua who had a brief responsive government, the era of President Olusegun Obasanjo and that of President Goodluck Jonathan are era of ‘ojelu’. All they know is to “share the money”. Their call is a call to “come and eat”.
Now the power has changed hand to oselu, those who have come to deliever the goodies to the people. Though there is skeptism among the people. They are not sure if the CHANGE is real or not.
Once beaten twice shy. In fact the people have been beaten for far too long. One can understand their fear. It was that fear that resulted to voting aparty. Desperados would do anything to stay in power.
But today, Nigerians are happy apart from some section who are deeply sentimental. Happy to have our new incoming President Mohammadu Buhari. #NigeriansDesides to have “A REAL OSELU” of APC. The man on a journey to collectively create a NEW NIGERIA.

Today, governorship and state assemblies election were held.
Markets and the roads were deserted.
General Mohammadu Buhari and President Goodluck Jonathan.
The leadership slot President Goodluck Jonathan got on a platter of gold in 2011 took General Buhari hard fight of fate to get from him in 2015 after three previous failed attempt. Powered by the Alliance Progressive Congress (APC).
Congratulation to Nigerians for the CHANGE.

From all indications, General Muhammadu Buhari (GMB) leads in all the areas he’s being earmarked to win. The North and the South West. We await final result from Independent Nationl Electoral Commission (INEC) in a short time from now.
Faces of GMB………….
Just like Mandela, with the Fist of Strength

The answer is yes! He’s the conductor of change.
Between the political father and son.
From the horse mouth.
These are few among the many funny sides of 2015 general election.

The nearer we get closer to March 28, 2015 presidential election the far away it seem, simply because of so many factors at play. Despite several assurance from the power that be.
This is an election that has put everyone at unrest. Because of so many abnomalities been perpetrated. From five week that it has been postponed to the last week that start today, there are so much uncertainty.
Nigerian prayer is that there will be no further postponement and INEC, the electoral body will be able to live up to its task of giving us peaceful, free and fair election by the grace of God.
It’s quite alarming, the pre election events that has and is creating fear and intimidation. This is supposed to be a time of relating with one another with brotherly love across board.
