Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Way

It is a known fact that politicians are lairs and thieves who work hard at washing their names clean of their sins by immortalizing themselves in false legacies. Goodluck Jonathan trends with that political culture of using titles, rewards and awards as political capital. One case in point is changing the name of one of Nigeria’s prestigious universities from the University of Lagos to MKO Abiola University. This was a political gambit by the President to appease and secure the Yoruba vote ahead of the Presidential elections. Chief MKO Abiola left a legacy of corruption that jives with the President’s longstanding ideology that stealing is not corruption.

Which brings me to Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Way named after our current Minister of Finance who is immortalized in her own Way in Utako Abuja. One might ask what she has done to have her name immortalized on a Nigerian street. Well it is very simple she is the one in charge of helping the President steal public funds.

The election was postponed 6 weeks for the administration to defeat Boko Haram giving the President 6 weeks to do what he couldn’t in 6 years. A President with no military background directing a 6week asymmetric war, although we all know it is all a smokescreen to buy time to rig the elections.

Last week the President held a closed door meeting with his party (PDP) Governors (excluding the Governor of Borno State the most affected by Boko Haram) in the heels of an impending landslide loss at the polls, he begged the Governors for their assistance in winning and handed them 20billion Naira presumable to buy the peoples vote at 10,000naira a vote. How might you ask a sitting President is able to spend public funds to run his reelection campaign? The answer is in the Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Way.

American politicians immortalize thieves, pirates, slave masters and mass murderers naming their capital after Christopher Columbus a known pirate and thief now they are stuck with a history of lies. So as oppose to naming the capital the District of Harriet Tubman a woman who actually had an impact on American culture and civilization they chose a thief.

Do Goodluck Jonathan and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala know the name of the woman that sweeps her Way under the boiling sun with locally made brooms maybe she deserves to have that street named after her. The sign writer sure does not believe Ngozi deserves it because he spelt her name wrong – Ogbeni Ayotunde @ #JujuFilms

  5. A great post. It’s ironic how a great nation like Nigeria has these leadership problems. Like one good leader can’t be found out of 170million people.

    1. It is a shame but we do have a corrupt ruling class system based on nepotism that strongly opposes anyone trying to do the right thing. Obasanjo just declared that Femi Fani-Kayode was a struggling cab drive in London until he brought him to Nigeria and made him the Aviation Minister. What experience does Fani-Kayode have in Aviation to be made the Minister? Is he living off his fathers name? Isn’t he one of Obasanjo’s mistakes as a leader? Obasanjo is also responsible for making Jonathan President.

      Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala came in with good experience and background, she blew the alarm about the oil subsidy scam, after her mom was kidnapped and she realized she was working for a rouge government and went along doing their bid.

  6. like my grandfather from italy always used to say, “the only good politician is a dead politician..6 foot under the ground or 6 feet above the ground hanging from his don’t make a difference to me!” Great blog!

    1. Your grandfather is right about that. Thank you my brother as always.

      1. and thank you for your great blog…for allowing me to see another part of the world thru your eyes.. 🙂

  7. […] a long list of corrupt politicians including Femi Fani-Kayode, Ayo Fayose, Musiliu Obanikoro, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Goodluck and Patience Jonathan will flee the country. I am satisfied knowing that they will live […]

  8. […] Corruption has become a national embarrassment and Muhammadu Buhari seems to be the only guy with the record and stomach to do something about it. President Goodluck Jonathan went around the country playing word games trying to redefine the meaning of corruption while Buhari stood his ground on fighting it. You see the Yorubas say omi eko eko ni while the Americans say if it tastes like shit and smells like shit it must be shit. […]
