No boby is saying something about the casualisation of nigeria workers and capacity building as well as enormous enviromental degradation in the NigerDelta.

I will consider the above as well as empowering the activities of EFCC beyond extra judicial measures especially on our Corrupt politicians and 419ers.

First of all, i will have to choose who among my many wives will be first lady then i will let her influence who gets what position in my cabinet. Every member of her family will probably become wealtier than most Nigerians, i will sell off all government industries and buy almost all thru proxy. will rehabilitate my old man farm with newer farming machineries, all this will be done with govt money disguised as bank loans. if anything happens to my wife, i will let her only son inherit the NGO she started, that was contributed to by all governors seeking my blessing and approval without recourse to laid down rules or law governing charity organization, oh well my ideas are endless, but someone already beat me to it OBJ.

As the president of the federal republic of Nigeria,i will make sure that the dividends of democracy is made visible by creating more job opportunities for her citizens and by the reconstruction of the "State of the nation" that is making sure that i will make Nigeria a better place to stay, by new infrastructures both in urban and rural areas,i will creat a forum for Nigerians to say their mind by organising a TV program where the citizens of Nigerians can communicate with me every sunday.I will make Education free in all the states.And in order to practice true federalism,state government will be independent of the federal government.There are so many other things that i will do to better the life of Nigerians.Ezenwenyi Stanley.C. for President 2019,that is the year that has been chosen by God for me to bring a change in Nigeria.

As Nigeria's president, I will REMOVE Babalola Borishade NOW

Please let us kick Borishad out before he ruins the country:

These are my reasons why Borishade should (be made to) go now:

For a Minister, he does not take responsibilities. Look where he placed the blames for this latest crash: not anywhere the minstry. This same man almost paralysed the Education sector while he was minster of Education in the year 2003.

Are we really ready to keep in the cabinet of Obasanjo? Some say this petition may not help. I believe that it will. The last protest by parents of another crash under his adminstration was met by brutal force by the Nigerian police. Are we ready to be gagged?

Is Borishade really indispensible in this governement? Can we make him go? I would give a YES to the last question. What about you?

Pls add your name to a petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/borisha/petition.html

sorry, but wha you say on the way to the farm is different from wha you say back home.

all the presidents and big boys killin nigeria took this same oat tha you guys are takin yet no difference. macbeth provs power intoxicates. the people who didnt say "if, , i will do heaven" such as Zik, Ojukwu and Pious Anyim did well.

therefore, the right question should be NOW IN MY OFFICE AS AN ACCOUNTANT.LABOURER.TEACHER ETC HOW DO I MANAGE MY RESOURCES TO REPROV THE BAD RULERS? OR DO I COLLECT BRIBE, KILL FOR POST, DISCRIMINATE, SEX INNOCENT LADIES FOR GRADE, CHEAT ON MY WIFEY, ?

I PREFER THOSE THAT DO NOT SAY THIS FALSE ALLEGIANCE. THEREFORE THE BEST THING IS TO KILL ALL OF YOU INLUDIN THOSE RULIN, THAT LIE THIS LIE OF "I WILL".

WEN YOU ALL ARE OUT OF OUR WAY, THE COUNTRY WILL BE WELL AGAIN.

Dear Reader,

The problem is not with President Olusegun Obasanjo. Nigeria needs Jesus Christ: I thank God we have it now and the Holy Spirit is working in some of us in Jesus Name Amen! With the eyes of God, I have already seen that Nigeria is becoming one of the most blessed countries in the World where many highly respected citizens in the World are seeking stay. Before 2010 all these will be made visual to the senses of those who aren`t spiritually alert. One on the greatest problem of the country has been the destructions caused by the mouth of those living in the country and outside. Let`s change our language today and continue to say; God bless Nigeria, Our eyes are opened to the blessing, we expanding and moving forward in life Amen.

Glord.

@Havila, that is an excellent analysis. To tell the truth, i have never viewed the many problems of our country from this perspective.This is why even the best politicians need advisors.

@Walelead,

As a leader, you cant say what is right cannot be achieved. If you have time, conduct a desk-based analysis of what led to the collapse of nations like USSR, Yugoslavia and many of the other baltic states. It is the absence of true federalism in a very heterogenous entity. While we might not achieve text-book federalism, we can achieve perfect federalism-perfect for our idiosyncracies.

What do you think is fuelling corruption, fruad in elections, difficulties in implemetation of carefully designed policies etc in Nigeria? While greed is one of them, but you will know power struggle among the various geo-politcal zones is a driving factor. Why do we keep on talking of irresponsible policy like "rotational presidency"? because some zones have been erroneously led to believe they can decided who control power at the central with resulting unfair utilisation of resources. Why should Bayelsa and some other oil-producing states be among the least developed states in Nigeria with higher than average unemployment levels despite producing the bulk of the nations resources? Iit is almost impossible to accurately conduct a census in Nigeria, why? because the political class in the various zone recognise numbers determine how much resourrces can be allocated. Why is there always ethnic coloration to appointments in the guise of absurd 'quota system' at the expense of merit?We can go on and on and eventually trace our problem to the fact that we've not determined how we will co-exist in a multi-ethnic setting. Yes we have 250 (?) ethnic tribes but we have near homogenous geo-political zones or regions that could serve as centre of regional governments. I am from the south west (a yoruba man) and not from the south-south, but I recognise the problem of our country. Dissolution of power from the centre to the regions is the way forward to achieving efficiency in Nigeria.

I wonder how you intend to build a lawful society in a country where some feel they do not belong.

@Havila, i did mention that i might be impeached but they cant kill me, NO they cant.

Now about building a foundation on federalism, i dont think any government in the world has achieved that yet and i dont see it ever happening. All over the world, people of different nations (as in Clan/kindred) never agree on issues, these will not cease. I hope you remember that Nigeria with 250 ethnic groups is the most diverse country ?

Building Federalism will be tougher than building the pyramids, if it happens.

but building a lawful society is possible, ethnic clashes and disturbances can be curbed if the effective executive arm of the government is active involved in the state.

@Walelead and All,

Well, Walelead, if you become the president in 2007 and you start all those things you wrote, as commendable and sensible as they are, you will not last 2 years in office before you are either impeached consitutionally or not, or even killed. The reason is because you will be building a house without foundation. Nigeria is currently like a house built with no foundation, so it is shaking pretty bad.

However, if I become President in 2007, my main task will be to build a foundation i.e define our very purpose for co-existence politically. A definitive and comprehensive constitution review where all the different ethnic tribes will come and agree on how we will live together in a Nigeria where everybody will 'belong'. This will be a true federalism, with reduction of power at the centre and development of self-sustaining and/or semi-autonomous regional governments with considerable regional control of their resources. After succesfully achieving this, then we can embark on building the nation because we now have a foundation. This is the way forward for us in Nigeria, unfortunately we seem to be avoiding it, hence the unending crisis.

Which is why I gave a facetious answer. When I was younger, I used to expend a lot of energy on this topic - but after a while, I realised that my serious energy was better put to use elsewhere.

I think one thing anyone can do is to encourage anyone they know to try to be as economically independent as possible. Educate them on how to educate themselves so that they can obtain the relevant information they need to be independent.

If Nigerians were more economically independent, they wouldn't be willing tools in the hands of the political elite. They also would have the energy and confidence to challenge the political elite who make such a mess of Nigeria.

walelead i think you hit the nail on the head. The main thing is lawlessness. If the rule of law can be established firmly, everything will fall into place, with time.

One thing though, trying to effect change via commercial class is not enough, I think. There has to be a "middle-class" participation in the political class, otherwise any attempt at change will be one huge merrygoround.

The topic is a very controversial, crucial and vital one.

If I become the President of NIgeria, I would first go on a month of training [that is if I have not done it before then (that is if the privilege comes suddenly)].

I would learn from leaders that took their nations from third world to first world in less than 50 years.

Then I would take enterpreneurs as my special advisers.

Employ young, dynamic and versatile young men (like wale) to head key positions.

After this is done, you can be rest assured that Nigeria does not have any option but to get better. (Not forgetting that people are our greatest asset, I would employ expatriates to take on our educational sector).

Cheers

My greatest passion is to encourage enterprenuership in Nigeria

and reduce the rate of unemployement.

The bedrock of most developed nations like US are SME's

I already started a partnership business in the Info Tech industry with two people, we are in

our 4th year and I believe the business will grow one day to employ thousands of people.

I hope to build many more businesses to help Nigerians.

@ deb and Hooplarr, I appreciate you taking time to comment on this topic

I have been thinking again and a new question arises.

Probably, none of us commenting on this topic will become president come 2007, so what can I do NOW to help improve my country?

I personally believe in extremely simple commercial ideas. I cannot wipe out corruption on my own, neither can i eliminate poverty. But i could help by doing something like starting a Wal-Mart in Nigeria. its as simple as buying food in wholesale quantities and retailing it to people at cheaper prices.

i will feed a few, employ a few, still make profit and contribute towards industrialization which is one major thing we lack. Maybe not today, but tommorow is never too late.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

When NFA's (No Future Ambition) people make comment,

its so easy to recognize them.

They are not passionate about their own country and if given the opportunity

to LEAD the people they will RULE instead.

Infact they will do worst things than the so called existing "leaders" that we have.

Walelead, you are a great guy. what more can I say. You have said alot.

Let me just add that I will get every Nigerian at least 90% educated

So at least every one will be informed about what is happening and

will not be pushed around by the likes of Mr Maradona because of ignorance.

There's also a need for the renewal of the mind in Nigeria.

Thats because you hear some so called educated people make comments

about their own nation and you begin to wonder if they ever graduated from the university

This question is a serious one and it hurts me with regrets that my fellow nairalanders are passing snide comments about it.

Nigeria as a whole is ours. Hence whichever avenue we have to discuss constructively shouldn't be handled with kid glove.

If I'm the president of Nigeria, I'll gather all the dishonourable men presently holding sway and bind them in dungeons and cells depending on their degree of misconduct.

I will recruit young minds with qualities devoid of 'chair pelting' and 'amassing of billions' and have every Nigerian benefit from the abundant resources of our land

I will ensure the complete annihilation of Touts(Agbero), Political Godfathers and Political prostitutes and ensure probity and accountability.

But wishful thinking i dare say. If only we can have a Jerry Rawlings of Nigeria,

If I become the president of Nigeria, I will do the following:

a) Any account with more than 300 million in it, will be locked. A panel will be set up for the individual with the account to clear themselves. Because as far as I am concerned, peeps with that much money stole it.

- those that can not justify how they made the money, will be sent to work on a farm and the money will be used to build roads.

b) The food produced by these thieves will be sold at very cheap price, if not given out sef.

c) There will exist classes in the country, not just the poor and the rich.

d) The basic things in life, food, shelter and clothing, will be available for all. Apartments will be built and sold or rented out, on a monthly basis, not someone asking for three years payment at once.

The list goes on and on, but these are the things I will take care of first. Oh, before I freeze all accounts, I will make sure there is no way for anyone to leave the country, if it means getting Navy Seals, I will.

Thanks.

Thanks for this thread. This will at least give many critics the opportunity to tell us what they would do differently.

For me, I will go on a all-out against corruption that virus that has eaten deep into our national fabric. If that is eliminated, I have always believed Nigeria will work again.

Then, I want to invest heavily on education. Real wealth comes from investment in human development. Nigeria has more human than natural resources.If we only tap into it, this nation will become an heaven on earth.

Then, i will want at changing our grossly vandalised value system that dwells more on materalism and not character. If these are fixed, I will be too glad to hand over after a term.

@topic, i was hoping nairalanders would take this topic more seriously instead of contributing silly and myopic points. i know none of us could become president in 2007, but Someone somewhere might read this thread and could pass it on to the authorities. I believe Nairaland has been quoted in National dailies in the past.

Hm, what will I do?

Well, as you know, a nation's greatest resource is its people.

So if I am made president in 2007, I will endeavour to maximise the use of this valuable resource!

First of all, I will make it mandatory that everyone should have their head shaved at 4 month intervals. The idea is that after 4 months, enough hair will have grown to make clothing fibre (just like sheep are shaved for sheep's wool). I will ensure that we become the leading exporter of 'Naija Faiba' and thus make lots of money which I shall personally manage on behalf of my compatriots.

As we all know, there are a lot of wars going on in the underdeveloped parts of the world, and lots of crime going on in the developed parts. What do both parts of the world need? BLOOD! Lots of BLOOD! So my second measure will be to make it mandatory that every Nigerian should donate at least one litre of their blood every 4 months. This high quality blood (which has been fortified with ewedu and ugwu iron) will be exported to the areas mentioned above, and I shall again personally manage the accruing revenue.

Lastly, I shall pursue my drive to maximise the potential of my fellow citizens by mandating them to give up their spare kidney (which science tells us isn't used, anyway). The harvested kidneys shall be exported to the developed nations where people who have wrecked their kidneys through too much good living can have them replaced. But I will not stop there in my bid to ensure that Nigeria is the World Center for Kidney Harvesting. I shall comission research into growing three, four or even six kidneys per person so that our dominance will never be threatened.

And of course, the revenues shall be properly managed by U NO HU. . .

in continuation,

i will have foriegn auditors who will be monitoring politicians on a constant basis, will make sure that every penny generated from the sale of crude oil is accounted for.

Then to face the environment, Lagos Nigeria is my favourite city in the world but also the dirtiest i know.

we will have sanitation exercises every saturday of every week, sanitation officers will maintain clean streets, highways and all public places.The police will so be in control that you will not dare to drop rubbish anywhere except the bin. All Nigerians will be on a national database through the National ID card, if u disobey any rule, u will pay for it dearly.

Private initiatives will take on more of the goivernment agencies like Nepa, electricity must not blink! and water must never stop running. Hospital will be run by trusts and private initiatives.

i will make sure that our system works perfectly. i will provide a free-phone service where you can report police/government official that request for bribe and they will be fired if found guilty.

All forms of money wasting ceremonies will be stopped. i will build houses whereby people will be able to buy on mortgage and pay over a given period.

Our education system will improve by force, all graduates must learn about entreprenuership and how they could create opportunities for themselves rather than wait for the government.

i will be high- handed but that is what Nigeria needs. Have u heard about Tunde Idiagbon? it was only during his days that Nigeria recorded success in the area of national discipline, i will be harsher than he ever was.

This is an issue ive been discussing with my folks for days now, i was even thinking of starting this thread.

well,what ill do? im gonna do so much that y'all are gonna hate me and probably impeach me

the main problem with Nigeria is lawlessness. I will empower the police, wipe out the bad eggs from within them and wipe out lawlessness in the entire country.

im gonna make sure that you can contact the police and emergency services by simply dialling 999 and get a proffesional response. i will then make sure that all civil servants, teachers and lecturers get to work at 8:00 am on the dot. if ure more than 5 minutes late, you get queried or probably get fired.i will increase thier pay but they must account for every minute they are paid for by using Clock in machines.

i will invite british/ american companies like Walmart and Tesco to build agricultural plantations and open mega stores where people can buy cheap food. they'll employ people in thier farms and stores and get Nigerians working.

all students in over 16 must take up part-time jobs, they'll be so busy that they wont have time for cultism.

No offence to anyone but Nigerians are LAZY and non-challant, i was the same when i was in Nigeria. How many Nigerians wake up at 7am talk less of starting work at 4 am in the morning. Everyone must work and pay taxes, that way we can raise money to build infra-structural facilities.

i will beckon on Nigerians in the Diaspora to come home and help manage main positions of power because they are used to hardwork and dilligence here in the west. EFCC will work with the police, anyone found Guilty of corruption will get 20 years jail term.

believe me, in 4 years, Nigeria will change
