    its sad to read that a country greatly endowed with diverse resources still import these commodities instead of exporting them. The government really has to wake up and the people in charge really have to give up thinking of their pockets only and think of how to move the country forward together.

    I have a dream. I have a dream. I want to steal all this goods and take them to my father's Mbaise village. I'm working on a plan - - an original master plan that will ensure I never get caught. To ensure I don't end up in he'll fire, I will use some of the money build churches and mosques. The rest of the money I plan to invest in prime real properties in Ajegunle. What do you guys think about my idea?

    Shame to the nation. Shame to OBJ and IBB. They are Nigerains problem. Nigeria will be better off without them. They ruled for 19 years. The evil genius is a sore loser who like a jilted bride is now throwing tantrums because Obasanjo used and dumped him in the gutter of political irrelevance. If Babangida is not the fool Obasanjo said he is, why did he fall "muuguu" to Obasanjo who agreed when Babangida imposed him on Nigerians in 1999 to return the favor by handing Aso Rock keys back to Babangida in 2007 but later reneged. For allowing himself to be so outsmarted, used and dumped like a cheap 1000 Naira whore ( ASHAWO )by the Otta deity, We Nigerians affirms that only a fool is that thoughtless not to have a plan B or a water-tight agreement prior. Babangida is mad as hell because he never knew that someone is capable of dribbling the dribbler and Obasanjo has taken away the shine in his gnome genre Maradona! Now that everyone is in agreement that Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida is a fool and a greater one for that matter, Let Nigerians now pivot to place a curse on anyone who shall ever try to interfere with God's plan for Nigeria - to expose two evil persons that held Nigeria hostage for too long, by either calling for a truce or trying a mediation. I calls on Nigerians to back off and stay out of the way of two moving freight trains that are heading at each other. When two elephants fights, the ground will take it and survive but both elephants will hear "nwii". It is about time God used both men to destroy each other one since other Nigerians have failed or are incapable or too afraid to take on either man. The Gods are wise and not asleep; and the hour of reckoning is here. Good enough Obasanjo is an area father street-fighter, well seasoned in long protracted down and dirty, do or die brawl and since Babangida provoked the feud; he Babangida should have consulted Atiku Abubakar or Gbenga Daniel prior to understand that Baba Iyabo never backs out of any given fight. So Nigerians shall one day see a prostrating Babangida at the hilltop mansion in Abeokuta, begging for forgiveness before too long.

    What an early Christmas present for Nigerians and like McDonald's advert, Nigerians is loving it. Eventually both men will confess some hidden secrets as well as crimes they committed against the Nigerian people. Rumor has it that Babangida plans to implicate Obasanjo in the plane crash that killed the former Sultan of Sokoto and some Northern Nigerian political leaders while Obasanjo plans to implicate Babangida in the Ejigbo military plane crash that killed over 300 young military officers, drug dealings as well as the parcel bombing of Dele Giwa etc? Nigerains will not be surprised if Babangida throws in the murder of Attorney General Bola Ige? But whatever happens, Nigerians will be better off if both men self-destruct. What a jolly day it shall be and Nigerains will throw a big bash to celebrate the departure from this earth of two vile and demented human specimens whose coming to power in Nigeria was a curse rather than a blessing to the country. Remember the way Nigerians celebrated the demise of Sani Abacha, so shall it be for this two men. So to "Complete Failure" and "A Fool at Seventy", with round one now over, when is round two coming? Nigerians are excitedly waiting and praying that the fight goes a full 12 rounds. Two former "statesmen" now turned into market women, publicly throwing mud at each other. Nigerians predicts that Baba Iyabo will win this fight; he never backs down in all his all is fair style of street brawling. While Babangida on the other side, assumes certain air of sophistication, though unmerited, which will prevent him from going full throttle at the Otta deity? But who knows whether IBB is part of Boko Haram suicide bombers on a suicide mission to Otta or Abeokuta otherwise how does any Nigerian explain Babangida's provocative "Complete Failure" outburst and he forgot the admonition that he lives in a glass house should not throw stones or that he who is with sin should not throw the first stone. This two men are Nigerian problems. They ruled Nigeria for 19years. Can you imagine the damage they cause to the nation. Nigeria is importing fuel. Shame to both men. God will surely punish them and others.

    Awesome, Nigeria exports crude oil, but imports fuel... Kind of like a farmer having to go buy cooked food when his farm has every kind of food imaginable...

    This is so disheartening,,,,Nigeria exports crude oil and imports it again as refined fuel,,,,,may God punish all the bad leaders who have ruled Nigeria in the past since they know the right thing to do and will never do it.......what will cost these useless leaders in putting our local refineries in order??the loot they gain from the exporting and importing exercise will neva allow them to think straight.....

    Who says God is not answering prayers in this country??,,,,the two main NATION DESTROYERS who were actually meant to be nation builders are now washing their dirty linen in public and behaving like witches confessing their secret evils before their deaths......very soon we will celebrate their death just the way Abacha's death was celebrated cos if they dont die,,,Nigeria will not have peace,,,they are still the ones ruling dis country from their homes........their caskets are now ready for purchase.......
