The award should go to the 'MAN' who stayed all year without Light and security and still had these OG's eating away all the money he could ever wish for.

idris amina said...

i think the Silverbird man of the year should be Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo Iwealla for her selfless,transparent,unique,sincere, and administrative sagacity in the delivery of her official duties as the Minister of finance of the nation. Also for her powerful n uncompromising stand during the OIL SUBSIDY REMOVAL DEBATE and her solid implementation of the agreed policy...however, Her dedication to her job was posed with a threat recently via the abduction of her mother. thank you

As far as I am concerned, none of them deserve it. Silverbird should go round schools and pick a dedicated teacher (based on polls done by the students)to be the man or woman of the year. I respect good and dedicated teachers. They contribute a great deal to what a lot of us become in life.

I am not a teacher (I am a lawyer) but I love and respect my children's teachers. They give so much and I feel they deserve a lot more than what they get in return. It is high time we start appreciating the next door person who has made a difference in society!.

The "man" of the year for me are two people who have done exceptional well in the circle of thier influence: Asiwaju Bola Hamed Tinubu for leading on the opposition voice we have in Nigeria, giving our hard earned democracy a face n a vioce. Adeshina Akinwunmi the Agric. Minister, he is egually doing a very good job in his ministry, we might not be "seeing" what he is doing now, but before 20:20:20 we will al be gratfull for in input in the Agric sector. For me any of them is good to go.

Anonymous said...

To be candid, 90% of those on this list don't deserve any award let alone man-of-the-year recognition. Are we talking about a man whose son launders money? Or a politician that is hellbent on commandeering all the resources of Lagos State? Or a minister who is stealthily on the line of bourgeoisie economic principles, someone who doesn't care about the plight of Nigerians on the scarcity of resources at our beck and call? Or the same men in black without any plain direction of ensuring security? Or a minister of planning that has nothing to offer but the talk-show that any Nigerian can organise? Or Minister of agriculture whose focus is directed towards that small-holder rain-fed farmers who are the real Nigerians? Yet we dont know where the Zimbabwean farmers who were given large tract of land for farming are, we haven't seen their products, in fact there is no news about their activities.
The NDLEA man deserves some commendation even though the Baba-Suwe episode wont leave our heads easily. So someone should tell us what is going on.

None of them deserve such honor..I blame silverbird anyway not them.But among all I will prefer Tinubu.
The Governor should tell his son to return govt money they have been looting first. Silverbird, please nominate people who real deserve an honor in case of subsequent awards (don't look at what you are going to gain from people before nominating them) because none of Nigeria present Leaders (looters) deserve award from any reputable organization..

@cliprag said...

None of em deserves it;

Tinubu - Forming an undemocratic Tin god in the south west
Lamido - Laundering money

Inspector of Police - Not been able to capture or resolve Boko haram or any kidnapping issue

Okonjo - Subsidy!!!!

Adeshina - dont know anything about agriculture in nigeria , so that knocks him out!

Giade - if u catch someone with drugs, saw it in xray machine in his stomach, purged his stomach and still did not see the drug! Dont think u deserve any form of award!!!!

Basically no one deserves the man of the year but the ordinary Nigerian who has been able to survive the year under the harsh weather imposed by this same people! and maybe the ex-minister for power!
