How can a party which favours what this article describes as "radical" economic reforms, fiscal conservative spending policies and neo-liberal trade policies, not too mention extreme social conservatism be described as "moderate" or "centrist"??

Governorship primary election in Kogi state[edit]

Since the creation of the state a particular senatorial district{Igala} has always dominate the post of Governor through foul means or manipulation with Electoral officers. This has made other senatorial district that suffered to bring the state into existence; marginalized. Please I want the good people of this great Party to adopt the issue of rotation among the three senatorial districts which should be thrown to West and Central to produce the 2011 party Governorship candidate. This will make the state united, and also create grater chance for the party to win. Otherwise the election may not be won by the party. The state has not be witnessing unity,development,corruption fairly free because of this monopoly of power and marginalization of the West and Central senatorial district will reduce and fairness to all will be witnessed. Greediness will reduce and development, unity, peace will rain. We shall then feel belong. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.220.6.113 (talk) 19:18, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

User talk:196.220.6.113 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

THE LAST WRITER ON KOGI GOVERNORSHIP PRIMARY POLITICS WAS THOROUGH AND STRAIGHT FORWARD, IN FACT THE HAPPENING FIGHT IN GOVERNMENT THIS WEEK EVIDENCE THE DISHONEST BEHAVIUOR OF THE GOVERNOR HAS RESULTED TO PETITION WITHIN THE ASPIRANTS. THOUGH THE PETITION HAS SHOWN THAT MANY OF THE ASPIRANTS ARE CORRUPT. THIS IS WHY YOUR SECRETARIAT MUST SCREEN THE ASPIRANTS VERY WELL SO THAT OPPOSITION PARTIES WILL NOT HAVE CORRUPT EVIDENCE TO SHOW INEC AND EFCC THAT MAY BE USED TO DISQUALIFY YOUR FINALLY CHOSEN PDP CANDIDATE AT THE LAST MINUTE. TO BE HONEST WITH YOUR SECRETARIAT, ONE OF THESE ASPIRANTS IS AN OIL BUNKER, WHILE ONE OTHER PERSON IS A CORRUPT PUBLIC OFFICER THAT MANY PEOPLE KNOW. OPPOSITION PARTIES HAVE EVIDENCE TO SHOW LATER. ONE OF THEM MAY NOT ENJOY VOTERS SUPPORT AT THE GENERAL ELECTION IN DECEMBER, BECAUSE THE OKUNS IN KOGI WEST SENATORIAL LOOK AT HIM AS AN EASTERNER THAT IS TRYING TO CHANCE THEM IN THERE OWN WESTERN SENATORIAL DISTRICT. IF THIS ASPIRANT WIN THE PRIMARY BECAUSE OF HIS WEALTH, THEN OKUNS ARE READY TO VOTE FOR ACN PARTY SO THAT AS TO BLOCK HIM NOW AND BE OPPORTUNE TO PRODUCE A GOVERNOR IN FUTURE FROM THEIR WESTERN SENATORIAL DISTRICT WHEN THEIR ZONE TURN COMES. BYE BYE AND GOD BLESS PDP — Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.220.6.113 (talk) 13:26, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

THE RECENT KOGI STATE PDP GOVERNORSHIP PRIMARY ELECTION[edit]

Please I advise that the recent PDP Governorsip primary election in kogi state should be cancelled because the governor hijacked the whole exercise and do it the way he likes. Infact the whole thing was manipulated by him so to impose his in-law that will cover his corruption governance. If it is not cancel then the party will not win in December election. Canceling it will make the PDP to win and crises that would have likely occur will be erased. Finally the cost of running the December election will be minimal because the required may not too much if it is cancel and fine one is done. the era of imposing corrupt leader in kogi is over. thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.220.6.113 (talk) 12:43, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Bail kogi ! Bail kogi!! Bail KOgi!![edit]

Please save us from the hand of criminal and corrupt party aspirants that emerging out as pdp candidate. there are only two corruption free aspirants among those recently came out, but unfortunately they park out because of the bad method introduced in conducting the primary election that took place on 22nd September, 2011. i strongly advise that one of them be chosen to govern the state, because we have been suffering from corrupt leaders that made the least developed state. in fact i thought that the screening committee at lafia would have screened them(the six corrupt ones) out and allow Dr onukaba and possibly ibrahim alfa to go for the primary,considering the corrupt free campaign of the president jonathan and pdp in general. Now look at our PDP governorship candidate that was said to have worn the primary is forging himself into ward PDP Membership registered is just to qualify. This is same person that many have written bad report about in pages in newspaper as regard corruptions. what do you expect of him if he eventually become a governor of kogi state. The choice of prince Audu as ACN canditate shows equally the federal government anti-corruption agencies do not really want our state(kogi) to free from corrupt governance. please they need to do thorough job and make sure the state is not given to corrupt leader again.Allowing bad leaders means that crises and backward development will continue. please Mr president and PDP Leaders save kogi from bondage of bad governance. We need an achiever, that has good legacy in his past services that will not eat our money like monkey eats banana. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.220.6.113 (talk) 16:26, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Double Registration in Kogi State as per March, 2011 Registration[edit]

Recently it came out in newspaper Daily Trust and TheNation that you reported that thereare about 900,000 double registration in March, 2011 voters registration exercise in Kogi State. I have been expecting that by now the list of those that were involved in malpratices should be published out and possibly proscute or punsh them, but you people (inec authority) keep quite over it. I am suggesting to you that the law should take it course other wise more irregulaties or double registration will increase in future registration exercise and that will make any election conducted by you to be incredble. The result of any incredble election is crises. Please INEC should bring these people to justice so that others may learn lesson. By not punishing them and debrive them from voting also create an impression to me that they are not sincere in there cry of conducting credible election and confidence in INEC will be eroded. Act now to avoid be stained. I am also of the view if nothing is done aginst these people then those few offenders in other states were charged to court before be freed otherwise injustice has been played by INEC.

PLEASE RESCUE KOGI STATE PEOPLE FROM THE HAND OF CORRUPT,BAD GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATES WE HAVE SUFFERED TOO MUCH[edit]

       Kogi State  is one of the thirty six states in Nigeria  has suffered set back in term of economic development because of bad leadership in the Area of Corruption, political crises since the beginning of the present democratic government on 29th May,1999 till date. The state is among the least developed state in all facets and this is due to corrupt, unreliable leaders starting from Prince Audu Abubakar that governed the state from 1999 to 2003. During his time he was fair in carrying out developments at a very high cost that eventually led the state to incur heavy debt. He embezzled a lots of millions Naira and build private estates in United States of America and Britain, though the anti-corruption agency(EFCC) has taken him up to face court action which is yet to be finalized. 
      From 29th May, 2003 till date, the state has been under the leadership of Alh. Ibrahim Idris  and no meaningful development could be said to have been achieved and some State civil servants have not been paid salary from May 2009 to date . According to the Gov. Idris Ibrahim, he claimed that this staffs were employed in 2004 without his personal approval. Most of these staff was issued letters of employment by the Kogi State Head of service who is in position to carryout recruitment exercise on behalf of State Government. Imagine somebody who has been employed and worked for five years and have been in government payroll being denied by the Governor. He neither retrenched the staff nor pays them off nor issue quarry to Head of Service for unlawful employment. Furthermore, public primary school teachers in the State has been on strike for none payment of complete monthly salary since the beginning of this academic session. Upon this poor performance, he is trying to impose another corrupt person (Capt Idris Wada, Gov. Idris’ inlaw, who forged his PDP membership unlawfully into his ward PDP Register in Dekina Local Government Area of kogi State, Nigeria. This action was carried out by him so as to quickly become PDP Member which is one of the requirements to be considered for any PDP governorship aspirant.) Capt. Wada has been publicly reported to have corruptly been paid billions of Naira by Gov. Idris Ibrahim  for the awarded contracts that are poorly complete . Yet Alh. Ibrahim Idris is imposing Capt. Idris Wada to become governor of kogi State on the platform PDP (People Democratic Party) as to cover Gov Idris Ibrahim corrupt practice after leaving the office. In the process of  imposing Capt Wada the Gov. Ibrahim hijacked  the delegates by himself selecting party delegates for the Kogi State PDP  Governorship primary election that took place on 22nd September, 2011 and this led some of the aspirants withdraw from the exercise as protest. This action of the Gov. Ibrahim has presently led to factionalism within the Kogi State PDP party. Suppose it now happen that Capt. Wada Idris becomes Kogi State Governor, then it means deeper economic suffering and social crises for Kogi State, since he will need to satisfy his godfather (Gov Ibrahim) , other people that financially assisted  him and he  himself from meager resources of the State. Super high corruption practice will become the order of the day if Capt wada’ imposition finally comes to be. Furthermore, how can we comprehend the Anti- corruption zero tolerance campaign of his Excellency president Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria, if corruption practice exhibited by both Capt. Wada Idris and his in-law Gov. Ibrahim Idris  are allowed to scale through successfully. Please the PDP National working committee, INEC, Judiciary, Anti-graft agencies, Police, His Excellency President Goodluck Jonathan, First Lady  should come to rescue Kogi State from the hand of  the corrupt Governorship candidates by  presenting better alternative person that has  good legacy and fear of GOD  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.220.6.113 (talk) 19:18, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

suggestion on removal of oil subsidy[edit]

All the story and  explanation about the petroleum oil subsidy removal  from the president is just to achieve the evil plan of IMF and some corrupt leaders of this country.If he knows that he has good intention on removal of subsidy he ought to have told us during his presidential campaign. My suggestions on this economics issue are as follows:1, Probe some the activities   of  all the presidents,  from 1999 to date., 2, The president should pursue the cancellation or removal of the Act that immunize the Executive president and Governor from being probed while in the office, as suggested by late President Musa Yara'adua 3, The probing of wealth acquire by leadership of senate and House Rep.,be carried out. Imagine the kind of wealth  the elected politician  acquire within the period they opportune they are entrusted to hold positions. 4, The total Salaries and Allowances of the president and other elected politician be reduced to maximum of a millions Naira per month and minimum of fifty thousand Niara , and should be public for us to see.5, when the above measures are taken, then the subsidy can now be removed by 50%in  two phases.  These measure will help to Make both foreign and local investors( not only in oil sector ) to have confidence in Nigerian government,create employment, reduce security threat and make the life the citizens better.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.220.6.113 (talk) 12:13, 24 December 2011 (UTC) 

supporting the president transformation agenda[edit]

I fully support the President Jonathan transformation agenda and wish to advise that he should look inward as per reducing cost of rail construction by making use of local  production of Rail lines from Ajaokuta Steel company which  has  Medium Structural Mill{MSM} purposely meant for rolling Rail lines and structural beams.  Secondly, the various fabrication shops in the plant can be used for the fabrication of different spare parts for the rail construction and even turn around maintenance of the Refinery plants. Thirdly, the rail line from Ajaokuta to Aladja steel company in Warri of the south south region should be linked Benin and Rail way extended Abuja  from Kogi State as will  boost Commercial and Economics activities.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 196.220.6.113 (talk) 13:02, 14 January 2012 (UTC)
