Between Obasanjo And Tinubu; Who Is An Achiever?

i am not a poltician.

i was in lagos few days to election watching live broadcast of a governorship candidate on NTA. i saw Obasanjo campaign for Musiliu Obanikoro.

And onasanjo was asking the crowd in Kosofe in yoruba that " EYAN SE ODUN MEJO KOSE NKAN KAN, O TUN MU ELOMI WA JE GOMINA" Means somebody has just spent eight years doing nothing and he now bring someone to be governor.

Well, it is kind of hard to compare these two, as Obasanjo ruled Nigeria twice. For the first time he came to power back in 1976. He was in power for three years up to 1979. That time he was the military head of the state, as he was granted with this position through the coup. The second time he was elected to be the president of Nigeria in 1999 and stayed in that office all the way till 2007.

While Bola Tinubu was the Lagos State governor during the same period of time (1999-2007). Prior to that he has been elected as the senator for the Lagos state in 1993. Both politicians played significant role in Nigerian development and history.

This quote is from the EU observer

Enthroning and empowering the likes Uba, Adedibu Alao-Akala, promoting executive gangsterism, flouting court orders at will, hopelessness in the nation go to any embassy in Lagos even Armenia, Gabon and Azerbaijan this are also some of the merits of OBJ govt

Nigeria1,

Are you in Nigeria? What is the use of power plants When we live in perpetual darkness,

when insecurity is the order of the day e.g Bola-Ige, Dikibo, Harry Marshalls,

Infrastructures are the worst roads are terrible, and the last election was an insult to everybody the worst in the history of the nation,

Niger-Delta has never been this bad. With all these OBJ is the biggest flop/failure of all times despite that his regime made the most revenue.

President Obasanjo is the achiever, President Obasanjo is the best president Nigeria have had so far,  you can not compare obasanjo and tinubu, if you want to compare tinubu and orji or Goje, thn you dey talk but President Obasanjo forget it,   You measure a govt by facilities put in place. God ordain President Obasanjo to rule Nigeria, when a man comes from prison to palace,  It is the hand of God,

1 Look, if not for President obasanjo na darkness you go there,  All power station in Nigeria , think except for 2 was built by obasanjo,  let add the news ones,  making a total of 17 station own by the federal,  If a man built 15 of 17,  Is he not great,  what did the other president did for 38 years,  them they sell fufu or fora for 38 years,

Look President obasanjo have is fault,  But give him some credit, 

You see like everybody I would love to hate President obasanjo but we have to compare him with other leaders to judge him,   People around him are sometime not good,

2,      8 years ago Nigeria had less than 500,000 telephone,  but 8 years after we have 34 million telephone,  what other achievement do you people need,

3  Building of the stadium in abuja in less than 18 month,  Lagos state govt have been building the teslim balogun stadium for 15 years,, Una we dey lagos tell the whole world if them dom build it finish,  NO,

4 payment of nation debt of 33 billion dollar inheritant from other Nigeria govt,

5. In 1979 President Obasanjo built 27 ship for the nigeria shipping line,  in 1999 when he was back to power , Nigeria shipping line had 0 ships, 

6 In the last 8 years Nigeria Television station have gone from less than 70 to nearly 140 television station across Nigeria,

7. Universities,  In the last 8 years Nigeria have had more than new 25 universities

8 In 1999 Nigeria was in between a internal civil war ,  how we made it this far , my brother I wonder, 

9 He was part of the civil war, 

10 airport:  it was a no go in 1999,  please go there today,  but airlines are still problem sha,   

11,  in 1999 most nigerian queue at patrol station but for 90% of 8 years ,  most station worked , 

12 ,  Signing of new rail track  contract,

13 Obasanjo went to jail ,

14   a balance economy, saving of 42 billion dollars in external reserve,  the reason others want to be president in 2007 to steal the money,

President Obasanjo failures

1.  health care,   

2  and agriculture,  funny enough, he is a farmer.

3,   IS BIGGEST Mistake, appointing Alhaji MAKAMA to head census,  the census was a fraud,

President Obasanjo heart is for nigeria, most of us wonder why,  President Obasanjo is the father of modern Nigeria,   But after him,, I do not see anyone who can hold Nigeria,  It would be problem and problem,  President Obasanjo is a man stubborn man and that stubborn help him to contrl nigeria ,  Tinubu performed below what was expect of him,  Tinubu lived abroad and to him more is given more is desire,  we all except tinubu to perform miracle,  everybody predicted that tinubu would be the next Awo, but his performance was no where even  near a military ruler called mudashiru,  In lagos the other of performance is jakande ( 4 years in govt), followed by mudashiru( 2 years in govt),  and not tinubu( 8 years in govt), ,

The second leader in nigeria would be Gowon,

You see the only measure of leadership is what you leave behind,

Ah, my fellow nairalanders, such naivety on the part of some of you.

E fe fi Iku we orun ni? Do you equate sleep with death? Impossible.

Where was Tinubu when Obasanjo was holding it down during the civil war?

My people, in brevity Obasanjo and Tinubu are both achievers but merely on really different levels. There's a wide gulf between these two, make no mistake about that.

And I must add here that I will really appreciate it if some of my colleagues desist from passing insults on the leader of the most populous nation in Africa. It is equally in the bible that we don't denegrate our leaders cause if God didn't want him there, he (Obasanjo) wont get there.

Let's think,

On what basis is Obj's govt the best? Increased lack of electricity? Disregard for the rule of law? Increased poverty? Lower standards of education? Increase in the price of petroleum products? Increase in food items? Kidnap of foreigners? Increased unsolved and unsolvable assassinations? On what basis?

AT ORIGINAL QUESTION: Neither Tinubu or Obj are achievers. (My opinion!)

But, if there has to be an answer, Id rather say Tinubu is less of a non-achiever than Obj is.

How many people are really thinking here before posting?? I dare say OBJ's Govt is the best we have had in a long time.

No Govt is perfect, otherwise, Tony Blair will not be stepping down this year. Despite his failings, OBJ still stands tall amongst others.
