President Buhari and his Aloota Countinua government – A poem by Reno Amokri



Read the article by Reno below…

The so called looters list released last week by Lai Mohammed, on behalf of the Muhammadu Buhari administration just shows how blind this government is to its true state.


Does this administration not understand that no one takes their anti corruption posture serious anymore?


How can you be fighting corruption and the only global body recognized as setting the standards for who is corrupt and who is not rates you more corrupt than those you point fingers to?


2018 marked Nigeria’s worst ever showing in Transparency International Corruption Perception Index when we moved 12 places backward from 136 to 142.


Yet it was under this climate that Lai Mohammed chose to embarrass himself and his boss by releasing such a farcical and nonsensical looters list that only featured members of the opposition.


Perhaps Lai and the other leading darkness of this administration were giddy from the show of crass they put on last week and called the Bola Tinubu Colloquium.


At that event, rather than tell Nigerians what the APC and Bola Tinubu (once the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress until June 2016 when he was publicly dethroned by Buhari) had for them, the APC leaders, from President Buhari to Tinubu, all took turns to blame the previous administration and pour scorn on firmer President Jonathan.


Perhaps the worst of it was Vice President Osinbajo, a man who worked for Tinubu for 8 years, yet still has the guts to call others corrupt.


Vice President Osinbajo reminds me of Michael Corleone’s wife in the movie the Godfather. Kay Adams-Corleone disliked the Mafia so much that she had extracted a commitment from her husband that he would not be a part of it.


She continued to live a sheltered life in a bubble until one day, her world was rocked when her sister-in-law, Connie Corleone, informed her that not only was her husband a mafioso, he was actually the Don (Godfather, head honcho).


Vice President Osinbajo desperately needs a Connie Corleone to tell him that not only are his benefactors corrupt, they virtually hold a franchise over corruption in Lagos! Don’t ask me name them ALPHA-BETA cally. I do not want their trouble.


How can Professor Yemi Osinbajo look a room full of characters like Tinubu, and say ”Those who carried out the criminal looting in this country must be held to account”. Some of the very people he refers to were right there in front of him. The others can be found at FEC every Wednesday! Is it Rotimi Amaechi who once boasted that “We steal because Nigerians don’t stone us” or Fashola that admitted to spending ?78 million tax payer funds on his personal website?


I do not know why the Vice President keeps insulting the intelligence of Nigerians by insisting that former President Jonathan ‘destroyed’ Nigeria.


The Vice President should remember that under the Jonathan administration that he accuses of ‘destroying’ Nigeria for five years,


A 50kg bag of rice was ?8000

A litre of petrol was ?87

$1 was ?150 (then ?199 in 2015)

Lagos-Abuja air ticket was ?2500

A bottle of Coke was ?60

A tin of Peak milk was ?80

?18,000 minimum wage was equal to $120.


If truly Jonathan destroyed Nigeria as Professor Yemi Osinbajo alleges, how come his boss, President Buhari, has made it a habit to recommission projects already commissioned by Jonathan, from the Air Force drone, the Plateau bridge and now to #EkoAtlanticCity, amongst others? Does Buhari like destruction?


?There is a popular Nigerian Pidgin proverb which goes ‘who no like better thing’. Buhari is recommissioning Jonathan’s project because he likes ‘better thing’. Since he cannot find any ‘better thing’ associated with him, President Buhari is drawn to Jonathan’s better things.?


In fact, I appeal to Professor Osinbajo and his boss to likewise ‘destroy’ Nigeria like Jonathan destroyed her.


They claim that Jonathan ruined Nigeria and they are rescuing her, but the facts do not bear up to what they are saying.


On the day ex President Jonathan handed over to President Buhari, Aliko Dangote was worth $25 billion. Today, after three years of Buhari, Dangote is now worth $13.8 billion.


If you doubt me, Google it yourself. Then think about it.


Think about it very deeply.


In fact, I hear that during Federal Executive Council meetings, President Buhari now calls Rotimi Amaechi, Martin LUTHER, because the man has looted Rivers state so much that even after leaving office the ALOOTA CONTINUA!


I also have been reliably informed that the only reason President Buhari agreed to meet with Naomi Campbell is because he thought her name is Naomi Cowbell. You know how he prioritizes anything that has to do with cows. That reminds me, President Buhari is excitedly waiting to meet Simon Cowell soon. The last two paragraphs are a parody.

Who we elect as President in 2019 has deep consequences for our pockets. In one week, two prominent Northern emirs who supported Buhari and celebrated when he won came out publicly to wail about extreme suffering and killings in their Emirates. They thought they dealt with Jonathan, but after three years of Buhari, they realize they dealt with themselves!


After three years of blaming the previous administration and making little to no progress towards fulfilling their campaign promises, Nigerians can now see that the only difference between the APC and yahoo boys is that one operates from laptop while the other operates from State House, other than that there is no difference.


The APC that promised three million jobs per year have seen Nigerians lose 10 million jobs in the last three years. What is that if not fraud? They promised to make ?1 equal to $1, but today $1 is equivalent to ?367. Is that not yahoo? In fact, that one is no longer Yahoo. It is Yahoo plus!


$25 billion was spent at NNPC without due process and nothing happened and the APC say they are fighting corruption?


If President Buhari does not Know, then I would like to inform him that with the amount of looters in his cabinet, Nigerians have nicknamed his government ALOOTA CONTINUA.


How can Amaechi and others be in your government and you say you are fighting corruption! Fashola, your minister of works built a website for ?78 million, yet he is fighting corruption with you? Corruption my foot!


On a lighter note, ?I have just been informed that President Donald J. Trump of the US is called POTUS,?


?While the President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria is called DISAPPOINTUS! ?


Let me end this piece with an original poem I wrote:


The first Siamese twins I have ever seen in my life are APC and Lies.


They go together like white on rice.


Their affinity to lying is so strong that they chose a spokesman whose name rhymes with lies!


Oh what lies ahead for Nigeria when we have a Lai to inform us with lies?


A Buhari to bores us with booboos in February!


A Fashola to flash power!


But the worst is the deputy, a pastor that passes on lies!

Five best friends who were bridesmaids in each other’s weddings are all now state senators



Five longtime female friends who were bridesmaids in each other’s weddings have each won their state Senate races in this year’s midterm elections in the United States.

The women who are all Democratic candidates — Tammy Story, Faith Winter, Jessie Danielson, Brittany Pettersen and Kerry Donovan — all swept their state Senate in Colorado, People reported Wednesday.

The women, who call themselves “The Fab Five,” helped flip the state Senate to a Democratic majority for the first time in five years, the publication noted.

Danielson, who currently serves as member of the Colorado House of Representatives, told the magazine:

We were all in it together.

Each of the women said they helped the others face negative criticism and slander during their campaigns.

Winter said:

Through the campaign, the five of us were very supportive of each other. We had several text chains where we would check in with one another and see how we were doing.

If a particularly bad ad or piece of mail came out, we would reassure each other on the text chain, ‘Have you seen the mail? It’s so awful, how are you doing?’

The friends are among the more than 2,000 women who are gearing up to take office in state legislatures nationwide next year.

2019: COSON rejects President Buhari and Atiku Abubakar’s party manifestos



The Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) has rejected the presidential manifestos made public by the presidential candidates of both the All Progressive Congress, President Buhari and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
COSON said that after reading both the #NextLevelNG manifesto of the APC and #TheAtikuPlan manifesto of the PDP, it is shocked that none of the candidates appears to have a plan to grow or develop the immense talent that exist in the Nigerian creative industry such as music, movies, theatre, fashion, content etc an area in which the Nigerian nation has significant comparative advantage and the youth have tremendous flair for.


COSON has said that the lack of strong policy positions in this area is evidence of the disconnect between the leadership and the followership in Nigeria. This is not withstanding the significant contribution said to have been made by the Nigerian creative industry when the Nigerian economy was rebased a few years ago under the Jonathan administration.
COSON has announced that the organization is inviting serious politicians to the COSON Arena to come and educate stakeholders in the creative industry on the concrete plans that they have to deploy the assets that the country has in this creative direction. It is the interaction of the industry with the politicians that will determine whom the thousands of members of COSON will endorse, support and campaign for and recommend to their fans to vote for.
Speaking on the decision, COSON Chairman, Chief Tony Okoroji said, “we are no longer going to stand on the sidelines. This is the era of the knowledge and creative economy and we will do whatever is necessary to make sure that our country is not just an onlooker in this new world but a key partaker and serious player, starting from 2019. We mean business”

”Don’t hand over Nigeria to hooligans and thieves” – Obasanjo tells Nigerians



Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised Nigerians not to hand over the nation and democracy to people he described as ‘thieves and hooligans’. The former president said this when he spoke at the launch of Goodluck Jonathan’s book in Abuja, on Tuesday November 20th. Speaking at the event, Obasanjo said

“There is still no substitute for democracy when all is said and done. It fosters peace. It builds and does not destroy. It unifies, rather than divides. But all these can only happen if democracy is in the hands of democrats. If it is in the hands of thieves and hooligans, they can use it as a weapon. We should ensure hooligans don’t get it.”

The former president has since asked Nigerians to vote out the Buhari-led administration in 2019 and has openly declared his support for Atiku Abubakar, who is running as the PDP presidential candidate in next year’s election.
