Senator Obanikoro Receiving An Award At Texas Southern University

Senator Obanikoro receiving the Texas Southern University Distinguished International Alumnus Award 2014 from President of the Texas Southern University, John M. Rudley on Friday 24th October 2014 at the Westin Galleria Hotel, 5060 West Alabama – Houston, Texas, United States of America (USA).

The Honorables

When Nigerian politicians add titles to their names and receive meaningless awards, they are setting the stage to run a scam. The Nigerian politician averages 3 titles mostly trumpeting their “profession”, so the Nigeria Television Authority and other Nigerian news outlets announce the VP as Architect Vice President Namadi Sambo, see how they called him an architect before vice president.

No self-respecting Nigerian politician is addressed by his or her given name; they buy honorary doctorate degrees from any two bits college and wear it like scrubs. There are the Engineer Senator Chief, Architect Doctor Senator, Engineer Otunba Senator you get the gist meanwhile no one is asking these honorable engineers and architects why we have no electricity and horrible infrastructure.

Brings me to this image and caption posted on Senator Obanikoro’s Facebook page, these thoughts crossed my mind. How much did he pay for this award? He is about to scam the people for a higher office and why is he getting his award at a hotel and not at the school campus auditorium?

    1. TSU is a hub for Nigerian students, yeah I have been to that hood. Frisco hmmm I lived my late teens and 20s in LA, was there for the CIA inspired crack war in the city.

      2. So you know about the LA fakers, enough said.

      3. brother man, I didn’t get this old and ugly by hanging around in “smog town” for more than a day-at-a-time and then only because I couldn’t avoid it! hell, if I wanted “adventure” of that sort I’d just cross the bridge to oak-town, pray and keep my eyes peeled and my head down!

  2. I am glad to read your remarks. I have been looking closely at your photos and learning about Nigerian exports and I think to myself, why does so much of this look like Detroit? The answer is corruption.

    1. Yep many Kwame Brown’s in Nigerian politics. Many Nigerian politicians attended college in America, in the 70,s 80’s and 90’s there was a large community of Nigerian students in the midwest, Detroit, Madison, Minneapolis, Chicago, Indianapolis….

      1. always wondered why Najia were over here instead of England, but then assumed they felt “safer” why I do not know!
