WEAH'S ELECTION: A TURNING POINT FOR AFRICAN LEADERSHIP

                      George Weah, President elect of Liberia           
The election of George Weah as President of Liberia in 2017 is indeed a turning point in the search for a new crops of leaders on the African Continent. This is because the African Continue has witnessed a sum of old, lethargic, worn-out but sit-tight leaders that are bereaved of ideas that can navigate the continent out of backwardness, modern slavery, neocolonialism, mental, religious, tribal and ethnic slavery!

How sincere is FG's diversification policy?



                                                                             


It is rather unthinkable that in spite of the overhyped talks by President Muhammadu Buhari to diversify the economy into solid minerals and agriculture, no farms can be traced to the local, state and federal governments! All Buhari is telling Nigerians are empty talks about the diversification of the economy without plans on ground as to how Nigerians would access land, fertilizers, seedlings, tractors, pesticides, herbicides, plowers, slashers, farm settlements, funds etc. Methinks the federal government would lead by example by being in the forefront in cultivating its own farms so that both the local and state governments would emulate it but this is not so.  From a closer observation, it appears there is insincerity on the path of the federal government being led by Mr. Mohummadu Buhari in regard to the diversification policy. This is so because about $10 billion has been spent in prospecting for crude oil in the north without success yet Mr. Buhari has continually urged the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to continue with the search for crude oil which has just been extended from the Lake Chad Basin to Sokoto State! Why President Buhari has continually ordered the NNPC to prospect for crude oil in the north, such push has not been mounted on the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development to revamp the agriculture sector!

No restructuring no Nigeria

                                                                              

Restructuring is to allow the states control their resources and pay taxes to the federal government. It is to allow the states generate, transmit and distribute electricity. It is to allow the states own and control their police which is the same as state police. Restructuring is tantamount to devolution of power to the states. There are about 70 items in the exclusive list of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution. Restructuring is about removing 60 of those items from the exclusive list to the residual list. This is to allow the states have more power to execute certain things they are presently not being allowed to execute.

Between NDDC and other cmmissions



                                                                                    
                                          
Since the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay accused both the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) of corruption, the NDDC has been ghettoized and put down by many Nigerians. Sagay lambasted the NDDC of being reckless with funds meant for development, alleging that the commission recently bought 70 cars, including eight Super Lexus Jeeps at N78 million each and 10 Landcruisers each costing N63 million.

APC and demonization of PDP



                                                              
Since its assumption in office almost two years ago, the Buhari-APC led federal government has not ceased to demonize the Peoples Democratic Party for the woes that have befallen the country. But the problems confronting the country didn’t start 18 years ago, a time the PDP assumed office in 1999. The PDP government actually made some appreciable successes when it led the country as evident in the establishment of numerous industries by both local and foreign investors, leading to massive employment opportunities across the country.
