Nigerians will have swollen pockets if money diverted under GEJ is distributed – Oshiomhole

Published

Former governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, has taken another swipe at ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

Oshiomole’s latest criticism came on Friday while addressing APC leaders in Edo.
He said if the money allegedly diverted under the Jonathan-led regime is shared among Nigerians, everyone would be “rich”.

The former labour leader said there is a need to constantly reiterate that the 16-year reign of PDP “plunged Nigerians into poverty”. He said the APC under President Muhammadu Buhari has been making efforts to “pull us out of that hole”

“It is our task as party activist to painstakingly explain to our people in the rural areas to understand who dug the hole that led to what we are experiencing today as a nation and the effort by Pres. Buhari to gradually pull us out of that hole to the surface and begin to push and uplift us upward to that level in which every Nigerian will have to say I am a proud Nigerian.

Poverty is not an act of God, it is the result of our economic history. And when you look at how much was stolen under the watch of Jonathan as president and the revelations the governor of Gombe state made, if you distribute the kind of money that was diverted under the PDP regime under President Jonathan, to 180 million Nigerians, each of us will have a swollen pocket.

And we must help our people to appreciate that the challenge of rebuilding a house that was rocked beyond foundation, to build a complete new foundation cannot be an overnight work.

What is important is that there is a commitment to refix, and the President has broken new grounds which may not have been amplified to a level that the rural people can see them,” Oshiomole said.

“The Marriage Crashed After 4 Months, Then Came Alive Again” — Veteran Filmmaker, Ugezu J. Ugezu Narrates Now Negligence Is The Cause Of Many Big Problems Holding So Many People

Published

He wrote: “Since her marriage crashed after just four months, this very decent lady has been trying to understand what happened.

She went into that marriage determined to make it. She was prepared to be a wife just like her mother. In that four months, she was spectacularly wonderful, but still, the marriage crashed.

She was devastated. There was nothing she had not done to reconcile with her man and nothing worked. He flares up once he sees her and some pastors have told her that the man she married belonged to a cult, and that he will kill her if she goes back. Another told her that she should thank her God that it ended.

But this lady refused to give up on her man. She knew him very well and was convinced he was not into all those demonic things.

Finally, a benevolent dibia afa, out of pity, meets her in a gas station and tells her what happened. [You know one of those seers who will see you and start saying things. She almost dismissed the man and was about driving out when the seer hit the melting point…. your marriage can still work if you locate Nwanyi Ukwa and pay the money.

She is curious…. who is Nwanyi Ukwa? What money do you speak of? Now the coast was cleared for an elaborate explanation.

Unknown to this innocent lady, the woman (Nwanyi Ukwa) who the husband engaged to cook special meal for his close friends, a night before their elaborate marriage, was not paid her money in full. She tried to collect her money and the man refused to pay. That woman it was who went back to their village in Okpuno Agu and laid the curse…. As you have refused to pay me my money, this your marriage will not last.

This lady, still determined to have her marriage work, located the woman and paid the money. Like magic, the unexplainable trouble that ended the marriage has evaporated and husband and wife have reconciled.

So many big problems holding many people were caused by stvpid negligence. Learn to ask questions.”
