S’East, S’South govs re-affirm support for Jonathan

44

From PETRUS OBI, Enugu

Governors of the South-East and South-South states met again in Enugu yesterday but refused to disclose the details of their deliberations. It was however, believed that the meeting, which held behind closed doors, featured prominently, issues relating to the proposed National Conference.
The Igbo apex socio-cultural body, Ohaneze Ndigbo, which met on Saturday was believed to have presented its position on the conference to the South-East governors as the two zones seek to harmonise their stands ahead of the conference. Governor of Cross River State, Liyel Imoke, who said little about the meeting simply told expectant newsmen that it was a continuation of their last meeting. “As we continue to focus on economic cooperation and unity and of-course focusing on our collective interest while remaining committed to the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan, he said.”
Only the governors of Abia, Theodore Orji; Sullivan Chime of Enugu, Peter Obi of Anambra and Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State attended the meeting. Ebonyi and Bayelsa states were represented by their deputies Mr. Dave Umahi and Rear Admiral Gboribiogha John Jonah (retd).
The governors of Imo, Rivers, Edo and Akwa Ibom states were absent.

    Re affirming support for jonathan automatically translates to support for him for another 4 years. Ok. This means another 4 years of hardship for nigerians and 4 years of lawlessness in nigeria. I wonder the kind of people called Governors this South East. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    • Bold steps by southeast southsouth governors and chieftains.
      The larger you are as a group with commonly shared value systems, the more respect you command.

      The three governors who refused to participate are widely known to be pursuing their own private agenda of aspiring to become VP under the present unworkable political system and structure.
      .
      Those three governors have since completely lost touch with the masses that they govern.

    • Nde nwe madu ekwuole and that is final. Prez. Jonathan means well for Nigeria and Nigerians. The cry against the national dialogue is baseless since Jonathan has nothing to gain from its failure having himself come from one of the so called minority areas. let us support this man because doing otherwise is a return to the status que that has kept the nation from moving forward.

    • how old are you Ejike? if God should bless america after your comment, why do you show concern about the lawlessness in nigeria? black americans never get respect in america, you think refugee like you will change anything there?

  3. Shaa-ra-p this New york Niga called Ejike Aturu hausa,what do know about lawlessness and hardship when you sneak into America with Fake documents.For your kind of information,if you dont know what to say in this forum,you better shut your fuckn stincking mouth up.yeye man.imagine you criticizing jona as if he is your age mate .your entire generation will not be L.G.A chairman.I think you are blind enough to see the good job of mr Jona..God bless 9jeria.

    • Ejike, New York on

      ROGUE GADAFFI, when I become President of nigeria, I will rule over you. I will use my intelligence and nigerians will enjoy. Whether you call it fake douments or not, the bottomline is that I am here and there is nothing you rogue can do about it, yeye fowl ! GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    • You are being pined down by acute malaria. Such dream to a chronic fugitive like you amounts HBP . A mirage that can only exist in a mid-night serenade . aturu awusa , you can even fly privately owned DC10 , Cardilac , air-chopper , Concord flight , Cruiser , submarine , president of Chadian Rep or Benin Republic , running after society ladies , living in Aso Rock , dishing out orders from Oval Office all I say all , repeatedly I say reemphasising it again that this unattainable dream can only be made feasible on top of your 4×6 iron couched bed. I mean that your inherited iron bed from your father that contains canopy and hanger where you hung your dirty jean and colonial suits the hands can not elongate more than your wrist. To worsen your situation this dream only starts between 2-3 am while leaving 4-6 am for you to ponder over your unfortunate short termed luxury that finally lunch you into HBP.

    • Pls our dear S.South and fellow S.Eastern leaders , it is our desire to felicitate to you great visionary leaders to continue on this noble course you all have set in for us and our children’s children.
      Meanwhile , the black sheep we Imolites elected into power is own his own in this confrontational approach to snare the image of good people of the Eastern Heartland . Be that as it may , we the law abiding citizens of the state are hereby appeal to you senior citizens of the two illustrious zones to inculcate our people of Imo state in your scheme of things because as it stands today in the state Imolites do not have a reasonable governor that respects elders and he always goes solo to attain his selfishly perceived ideas thinking to see himself as “Mr or Alhaji know all.”
      We did not bargain to elect a stubborn goat in office but rather we taught at the beginning that we are dealing with human being that are made by blood and water . Pls , the respected elders of our time you have chosen to better our lot judging from this lofty idea which had eluded us since independent. We wish you all good tidings and greater wisdom to pioneer our beloved region to a greater hight.
      May God Almighty grant you all long live and a sound health in the foreseeable future to accomplish the needed heart desire in Jesus most precious mighty name we have prayed Amen!

  6. Just to reasure Mr President that South East electorates are solidly behind him..we must embarrass him with our numerical vote come 2015..we do it before we must do it again..jona no shaking.

  7. Et tu, Brute! U be the Judge

    Folk below is an excerpt from Vanguard Newspaper revealing how much members of the House receive as salary under the Tambuwal’s speakership, N9M or $57,000 per month, or $684000 per year ; Under Bankole speakership, the 6th congress, they received N15M or $97,000 per month or $1164000 per year. And immediately is what Nigeria Congressman receives as salary in a year. And following it is what a U S Congressman makes per year

    “The anti-Tambuwal lawmakers in the House are reported to have asked Tambuwal to allow for an independent auditing of the amount of money so far released to him since he took over as Speaker in 2011. The pro-Jonathan group also asked Tambuwal to steer clear of the Rivers State House of Assembly crisis and allow the police to re-open the state legislature for business. The group also demanded that Tambuwal should explain why members of the 7th Assembly were being paid a paltry N27 million per quarter as against the N45 million that their 6th Assembly counterparts were getting under the Dimeji Bankole leadership. They argued that they have been cheated by the leadership which reduced their pay when the Federal Government had not reduced the statutory N150 billion being paid to the National Assembly yearly.” (vanguard Newspaper 10/21/13)

    “As of 2010, the annual salary for representatives, [US Congressman] is $174,000 per year regardless of the size of the state from which the representative is elected.
    In 2010, President Obama froze the salaries at $174,000, making it the third year the representatives did not receive the annual raise.” (Source; ehow)

    Folk, six hundred eighty four thousand dollars ($684,000) annual salary under Tambuwal and one million one hundred and sixty four thousand dollars ($1,164,000) annual salary under Bankole are the salaries of a Nigerian Congressman in 6th and 7th congress. And $174,000 is annual salary for U S Congressman? You be judge.

    Yes, the U.S congressman may have staff paid by the U S treasury while Nigeria Congressman pays his or her staff from the $684,000 or $1,164, 000 annual salary. But folk here is why this congressional salary is sinful, fraudulent, and callous to those Nigerian Children who have no roof over their heads; walk street on barefoot and on rags; can’t afford three meals a day, forced out of the school into child labor just for survival. Here is why this congressional salary is sinful, fraudulent, and callous to the so many Nigerian graduates, mothers, fathers, young and old roaming the street searching for means of survival in the moment of time. Here is why this congressional salary is sinful, fraudulent, and callous to the spirits of the still born, to the spirit of the maternally dead, because of the absence and or inadequate medical facilities and services. Here is why this congressional salary is sinful, fraudulent, and callous to so many Nigerians, young and old, the victims of road accidents due to the death trap nature of the poor, under-constructed, substandard gullied Nigeria roads. Here is why this congressional salary is sinful, fraudulent, and callous to the Nigeria Police Force and to the National Security agencies’ personnel who are poorly trained, poorly equipped and poorly paid who put their lives on the line for the congress that can never justify the evilly humongous pay in a country where more that 70% of its citizens live on average of $2 a day and unemployed. Would any sane person say that the Nigeria congress is more resourceful and productive than the Police and Military departments? The list of the sinfulness, fraudulent, and callousness of the over a million dollars per annual pay to Nigeria congressman can go on endlessly.

    Yes, the U S Congressman takes $174, 000 annually for his or her service to the country and has trillions of dollars in return to the country to show for it. He returns, the best infrastructure, the best medical facilities and services, the best police and military, the best security, returns superpower and superior military the world has known, returns the best and safest air transport system, the lowest maternal and infant mortality rate, the best education, the best and largest employment opportunities for it the citizenry and the world at large, returns the most satisfied citizenry. The list goes on for what the U S congressman returns to the country for his or her meager salary compared to Nigerian Congressman who returns the opposites of the good things the U S congressman returns.

    The difference between what Nigerian Congressman received in salary $1,164,000 per year under Bankole and what the U S congressman receives in salary $174,000 per year is $990, 000, only ten thousand dollar less than a million dollars. That is, if Nigeria decides today to pays it Congressional-Neanderthals $174,000 per year, the same $174,000 per years U S congressman receives, per congressman, it will save nine hundred and ninety thousand dollars ($990,000) which is the excess money it pays its congress-caveman. Agreed, the U S congressman has staff, office space and official travels which the U S treasury pays for; but the question is, do the Nigeria Congressman have paid-staff, travel and office space expenses for which he or she pays and spends the close to a million dollars in excess salary he or she receives compare to the U S counterpart? The answer is no and this is why Nigeria have plentiful of unemployed youth and graduates.

    The excess money ($1M, per Congressman times 300 members =$300M=N4.74B ) in congressional pay can employ many unemployed Nigerians. While the Nigerian Congressman still takes home $174,000 per years; same salary the U S congressman takes home in a year. But why should a Nigerian Congressman even receives $174,000 per years salary in a country where 70% of the populace live below $2 a day; a country among the 50 worst countries in the world in all development index? When a U. S congressman receives $174,000 salary per year in a country that is the best country in the world in all development index. If U S congressman receives $174,000 per year in salary shouldn’t its Nigerian congressional Neanderthal counterpart be paid only, ten goat teeth, 5 haystack of grass, 5 tubers of cocoyam and yams, one palm and one banana trees, one bow and five arrows and one stone spear?

    With this excess $1m per Congressman per year or $300M per congress per year, Nigeria Government can employ paid staff and pay the travel cost of its congressman thereby creating jobs for the unemployed. It is no secret that these Nigerian Neanderthals employs few or no staff and when they employ, they employ family members, relatives, sex and bedmates, concubines and do not spend a million dollars on staff, travels and accommodation. Nigeria government should provide basic office spaces for these Congressional Neanderthals who actually suppose to live in caves, and revoke their $1M in excess pay. Over a long run the government would save money since successive congressional members would use the same office spaces. If reason is the guide of men in African and in Nigeria in particular no public official should receive more than 12 fold the national minimum wage in the country. But Reason whence have you gone, why have thee forsaken our people? And Et tu Brute, Knowledge.

    Forgive me if this post seemed out of place; remember official corruption, impunity in Nigeria are the evils bedeviling Nigeria and dominates most of the discussions in this forum.

  8. If the SS and SE cannot have a common agendum at the Nationl Conference, their (two) agenda must overlap because the two zones have historic and geographical ties. They should not allow other zones to put a wedge between them again for their selfish motive. It has always been a repeated lie that the two zones cannot work. They should prove their critics wrong this time round!

  9. Pls SS/SE leaders forum, we d Imolites implore you 2 invite d three senators frm Imo State 2 represent us (imolites) @ any time & place you chose meet 4 d common good of our region & our country at large. As for Rochas, he is above d law & above d masses, bt lets see how he ends.

  10. Why should this smart alec, Ejike ‘US’ be responsible or talk reasonably since u guys (i mean all of u) have sworn not to stop feeding his malarkey. My advice for him now is that, time is right for him to grow up and contribute costructively. Incessant and vexatious Soppy trolls do not reflect well on him, albeit i dnt know him for now. Having advised Ejike, i tink the fact that the south east and south south have endorsing GEJ is a welcome dev. Hopefully he will be given the chance to do better without anybody trying to make the country ungovernable for him.

  11. @ Ejike, you are a disgrace in this forum. I am sure you are an Aboki and a cattle rearer residing in the far northern part of Nig. but claims to be Ejike living in the U.S. so that you will have the brething space to say anything here in this forum. The SS and SE coorperation is a step in the right direction. This is what the northerners will never want to hear. But, I say it again, they should watchout for more surprises.

      It is better said this way. calabar where you come from is a disgrace to nigeria for giving her someone like this clueless, impotent and lazy man including late okon dog RIP and emem.

  12. Ejike New York or Ejike Detriot- You don’t have to contribute on every topic,this government is not doing too badly,must yo blame the present government that some people who felt that it is there right to rule choose to make to country ungovernable just because a Southern is in power. What hardship are you talking about? When was it or has it being rosy for the past thirty years in this country?it’s being one clueless Head of State after another,when was there any sort of long time plan or project for the future generation of this country embark on by any government in last three dacades? Keep enjoying your America until you commit one little crime,when you are in chain and in an under ground cell then you will start reflect on your stupidities.God bless Nigeria,America didn’t just spring up from no where,it was built by human beings like you…..Ode.

    naijaria indeed is the most religious entity in the world, but that does not mean that they know God. how can these legislooters be living with their consciences knowing that 126 million of their compatriots are facing imminent starvation-death owing to abject poverty??? naijaria is an entity of psychopaths; look at governors and their security votes–first ladies everywhere: presidency, states, local government areas, etc. none of them gives a damn about starving people in their domain. naijaria is a very poetic entity. it is a big big big surprise that the naijarian revolution has not started to bring all politicians and their cronies to book as in romania 1988; despite the load of money politicians are carting away they are still sponsoring kidnaping;
    all said, the only alternative to a ##sovereign national conference following the end of amalgamation-experiment is a total and outright revolution. enough is enough; politicians and their cronies must be held accountable ….

  15. I still can not believe a self styled slave of our modern time that engage himself in odd job as a lavatory attendant in New York will see himself as somebody . Few days back he was bragging that he is now in Nigeria. That is to say in the next 10 days he will return back to USA meaning that he has no money to confront those of us that will muzzle him out with real cash. Invariably he is avoiding expenses during Xmas . This old man of 82 years is living from hand to mouth but I am still been scared concerning his long proboscis he will use to deceive little girls in the remote communities that will eventually result being impregnating the unsuspecting teenagers . May God deliver these young girls from the clutch of this evil man that’s in town called ejike aturu awusa of old York fucker.

  16. Ejike, New York. on

    skeleton owerri bastard, your case file have been closed. result will soon be published. RIP for you and okon dog.

  17. In fact Alhaji El Idris Usmani Aluma Okorocha is a disgrace to Imolites. Alhaji Okorocha , reason , sleep , dreams , behaves , talks and shouts like ejike aturu awusa. These individuals are like birds of same feather that flocks together .

  18. Ejike my brother, we value your contribution on this forum, but it would be better if you make constructive than abusive. The way you call people names does depict a civilized Nigerian. Some people made America what it is today, you can contribute your own idea. I have never seen you contribute meaningfully on any issued raised here, rather abuse everyone with contrary opinion. That is not maturity. The President is not the most intelligent person in Nigeria. You contribution can help build this country just like the America you are enjoying today. The way you talk to the President of your country portrays your level of reasoning and I must tell you to grow up.

    • Ejike, New York. on

      Austin Obinna, I agree with you. The issue is they started it and are on it not ready to back out. So, there is no other better option open to me right now but I might consider your plea on their behalf all things being equal.

  19. The man parading himself as Ejike is not an Ibo son but from other pert of the country. His intention and motives here is to distract us from making using contributions on issues concerning us. From his body movement he is APC apologist and an Ibo Hater. Please ignore him he is written from Under the bridge in Lagos claiming to be in US. Those in diaspora won’t have all these time the guy called Ejike always have to respond all your contributions. He is a yahoo yahoo Lagos area boy and always on line. For our good people of south south and south East pls keep the flag on and when the time comes Okorocha will no where he belong. Time will tell.

  20. @Austin Obinna, you must possess a magic wand that has made Ejike to finally agree that he needs to grow up. May be Ejike is tired like Amaechi’s G7 and a half Baraje. Ejike the voice of men is the voice of God.,even Iyabeji IYOBOSA is on the run from your fake, phony and fraudulent gburugburu e-mail address. Why are you trying to copy the title of our Forum Chairman Gburugburu, Quadruple Chief Owerri? Ejike throw in the towel, apologize and we will welcome you to the committee of grown ups and reasonable people. I commend the SS /SE Governors who reaffirmed their support for GEJ. Your loyalty is appreciated.
