Which Aspirant Has More Of What It Would Take To Fight Corruption In Nigeria?

With events unfolding day by day we keep seeing the transition process taking new dimension. It is becoming difficult for one to make a clear choice on whom to vote or support. Most of these aspirants are people we only know from reports we hear about them  and we can't really say whether they are who we see them to be.

Corruption stands as Nigerian greatest problem and Apart from having good ideas, it would be best for Nigeria to have a President that has the courage and character to fight corruption. Please help me which aspirant has more of what it would take to fight corruption in Nigeria. Is it Atiku, buhari, Utomi, Okotie, Yar'aua. or someone I have not mentioned

Frankly Buhari as far as am concerned remains a coupist who truncated Democracy and should not benefit from it. Yaradua looks a lame duck but he is worth giving a try so as to bury the ambition of the recycled leaders and old folks including Atiku.

Hi Peeps,

Talking about NEPA and Power Supply, can anyone give a factual report on the current situation in Rivers State since the N50 b (Fifty billion Naira) Omoku IPP station was commisioned on the 5th of December last year?

I watched the ceremony on BEN TV. The whole clan came to the ball, , OBJ, ODILI etc. They all seemed to give themselves a pat on the back for a job well done.

Do you guys in Rivers state now have constant power supply?

To fight NEPA is to fight corruption in our system. Obasanjo Claims to have spent over 10billion Naira on power generation. Where is the money can you really see it?

Hmmm, Buhari. My misgivings are, one he is a recyled candidate, and 2, the mystery of those 55 luggages in the 80's have sort of tarnished his credibility.

Is Utomi still contesting?

Our problem before this government came to power in 1999 was a depressed economy, fear, insecurity, food scarcity and unemployment. Poor health system, failed education, etc. No one ever heard corruption

But that's not true even before 1999 Nigeria was already known as the second most corrupt Nation in the world. it is very clear that  corruption is one of Nigeria's greatest problem. Our Steel Plants ( Ajaokuta , DSC) which has the capacity of employing Thousands of workers are not fully working now because someone eat money that was to be used for the plants. the truth is that most of our infrastructures are not in order because someone eat the money for it. up till today we have bad roads dilapidated structures because people only collect the cash without doing anything about them. this is very bad it is wickedness and we must agree that it is a major problem in this country let's not be sentimental. let's face the fact.

Our people have been fooled by OBJ. See how this man has made corruption an issue of national importance. We have forgotten our problems simply because EFCC pulled some stunts with Tafa Balogun and everyone seem to sing OBJ's song

"I'm the anti-corruption hero,

there's no one like Ribadu and I

Together we shall fight corruption

till our fatherland know it no more"

Our problem before this government came to power in 1999 was a depressed economy, fear, insecurity, food scarcity and unemployment. Poor health system, failed education, etc. No one ever heard corruption. OBJ came and convinced all of u that corruption was the cause of these problems and his solution was to bring anti-corruption campaign and reforms, what are the results?

We are worse than in 1999. He claims he gave us GSM. But we all know that MTN, Econet, Glo and even govt owned Nitel (now Mtel) paid $385million to the FG for licences. Nigerians on the other hand paid for every service they get from using this subscriptions. What is their achievement in selling license?

Corruption is caused by other problems especially frustration. You must tackle these root causes and corruption will go.
