God Has A Special Plan For Nigeria, The Reason Why He Chose Buhari- Osinbajo

Vice-President of Nigeria, Prof. Osinbajo has said God has a special plan for Nigeria and that was why he made Buhari win the presidential election.  According to him, the president had tried three times before God made him win the fourth time.

Buhari & A New Nigeria By Etcetera

I wasn’t born in 1960. So, I have no memories of the euphoria of the first Independence Day. My early memories of independence are the celebrations in the small government school I attended. My well starched and ironed school uniform, national flags made of paper, singing the National Anthem, and a speech by the headmistress were the highlights. In my final year, I was allowed to pin a small flag on my shirt and hold a slightly bigger one in front of the school because I was a school prefect. Those were proud moments! Even after so many years, the pride still remains. It is totally different today.

Back then, it was more about Nigeria, our country! There was nationalism all around. Even as young kids, there was unflinching commitment to the country. Reading Chinua Achebe and Cyprian Ekwensi was a passion. I was told so many times by my father that the first few images of post-independent Nigeria weren’t of food shortages, poverty, hunger, inadequacy of almost everything. There was hope!

Can Muhammadu Buhari Curb The Lavish Lifestyles Of Nigeria’s Political Elite?

Written by Remi Adekoya.  It’s an interesting read. Enjoy!

In a country where 62% of the population lives in extreme poverty, a Nigerian senator takes home roughly £1.1m every year in salary plus benefits. MPs must make do with £900,000. In comparison, David Cameron earns £142,500 as UK prime minister.

Nigeria’s lawmakers fly first class, lodge in the priciest rooms at the fanciest hotels and live in Beverly Hills-style mansions, all at the public’s expense. And they get away with this in a country where millions go to bed hungry. But Muhammadu Buhari, who has been officially sworn in as Nigeria’s head of state today after winning presidential elections in March, has vowed to lead a different, more modest kind of lifestyle and to cut down on what he terms “wastages”.
