^^^ I THINK $500 million was for it and guess what ?
Jonathan stopped the project by diverting the $500 million loan to something else,

And today, i just saw thanks to paddy lo that China gave us another $500 million for Abuja Light rail when that wasnt the price ....

Useless president :|

I was just thinking of African railways and this came into my head. The original deal was announced in 2006 or 2007 but I havent heard anything yet. The delay is unacceptable.

The deal was Stopped by Yar adua. . .in 2007 and has just been modified to resume next yr

Xterra. . .u need to get your facts right and stop being so damn biased. . .

If Jonathan is Useless then Yar adua must have been 10 times more useless

The President is doing a wonderful job against all odds

you must be one of the proponents of the fraud called zoning

First all,i dont like zoning, i dislike it
So if i dont get my facts right, show me the correct thing, instead of attacking me and yaradua .... show me and i would counter whatever facts you post....

Well, yea Yaradua is 10x more useless than jonathan, but yes that is so damn true as he is DEAD and thereby USELESS ..... right ?

And actually i am not biased, except if the word biased was replaced with the truth..... which i doubt so....


Hey, i understand you dont want me criticizing jonathan, you like him, but am not biased, check all my posts since i joined this SSC ,and checked whether what i say is wrong, show me even a post,
I joined this website in 2007 or 2008 (i wont waste my bandwidth checking this ) but see the number of posts i have, i see many things but dont post or argue with if i know that someone can prove me wrong.

And um i dont like yaradua , i like buhari only among the presidents, past and aspirants (although he wasnt a president)
but you can say that i prefer yaradua over jonathan, not because of ethnic or religious or zoning because i feel that he is not a good leader... as simple as that....
Not everybody is a proponent of zoning, or divided along ethnic or religious lines, if people are i am not..
I remember when Sanusi remover the banks heads, the ex-heads sponsored stories in the media accusing sanusi of anti-south, and some stupid southerners ( :| ) accused him of so, but when ibru was sentenced to jailed,and was told to pay back $1billion (or close to ) they kept quiet. :lol:

The point is Jonathan did not divert anything. . . .This loan has just been approved by the senate this yr,so how can it be diverted. . .since jonathan has only been in power since april this yr. . .

As for Buhari, i dont know how old u are,but i am young and i dont need a coup plotter from the 1980s as the Face of Nigeria in 2010. . how backward and retarded is that?

What is buharis economic philosophy?. .Socialism. . or what. . pls dont make me laugh. . the dude is clueless. . has no idea how a modern economy works. . worse still is an ex coup plotter and is basically 80yrs old or something and u think that is the best for Nigeria?

In saner climes Buhari would be in Jail or on Exile,pending the resolution of his trial for crimes against the state

That is why i say u are biased,If u are young,then key into what young ppl are thinking. . .no sane young man would ask for Buhari when Jonathan or Fashola is there

As for Sanusi, he is the CBN GOV,and is somewhat independent,so he has the powers to do what he did. .however the point is that most enlightened ppl will tell u that his approach is wrong. .
Plus he is clearly unqualified for the Job. . If i had a masters degree from an Islamic school in SUDAN i assure u that i will not be working in a bank talkless of the Head of the CENTRAL BANK of the 2nd Largest Economy in Africa

Again we can only move forward in this country if we tell ourselves the truth

Yar adua that stopped all the progressive reforms the country had u claim u like. .while Jonathan that is moving things along u claim u dont. . .pls check yourself and stop lying to yourself

Lamido Sanusi is more than qualified for the job of CBN Governor.

Yes, he did get a BA in Islamic Studies in 1997, more than a decade after he began his banking career, but he also has Bachelors and Masters degrees in Economics and was a university lecturer in Economics before joining ICON (Merchant Bankers), when ICON was still a subsidiary of the US's Morgan Guaranty Trust Bank and the UK's Barings Bank. After 12 years at ICON, he moved to UBA where after another 12 years he became the CEO in 2009. As an top banker and economist, with an intellectual bent (with published articles and commentaries to his credit), he is well-qualified for the CBN position, and there has been no power that he has exercised thus far at the CBN (including his removal of the managements of the troubled banks) that is at odds with the provisions of applicable law (principally, the BOFI Act and the CAMA).

You made things easier for me as you um um um, um , made your points in paragraphs( spaces i mean ) so i would reply you by paragraph so if i put 1. paragraph 1 and so on....


1. Okay jonathan did not diver anything, but yes he did, except that the senate stopped it, if the senate approved the loan this year and how can it be diverted? well except that the loan was approved on the 30th dec 10 and today is the 31st is what that cant be diverted and know that he was in power since february as ag, and also, not in april since yaradua died on may 5th and jonathan replaced yaradua on may 6th ...

2. Well, you dont know how old i am but let me just tell you i am 17, i just graduated from high school this past june, i know am YOUNGER than you, because i remember in The Oasis, when you posted how you celebrated Embarrassment @ 50 ( i mean nigeria ) you posted some pictures of yourself, which i even comment and said you look scary i even added 0_o to it, going by the pictures you are older than me, am not even 18..
if you dont like him as the face of nigeria, well thats just it, but for me even if he is a coup plotter, i believe that he can do what we need.... dont look at him as a coup plotter of the 1980s look into ghana's history and see

3. well TBH i dont know his economic philosophy but i dont firmly believe whether socialism or capitalism or mixed economy it would for the best of nigeria and i dont think it would be social or capital ..ism, well i dont know his age but he is old, okay what matters is the leadership abilities not age even if a 17 yr old would be president if he has the abilities then so be it ( but it wont be) even if the boy is me ;) ;) ... In saudi arabia, the leader is 83 so if buhari is 80 yr old as you claim ( maybe he isnt) it doesnt matters, i may add that it is good as you have the experience which is essential ..


4. ????

5. Again i am not biased, and if am young ? am younger than you , but am keying into what "young" people are thinking B) but no one would ask for fashola as he is not in the race, and for jonathan whether he is young or old, he is incapable of doing what is needed...

6. About his unqualification, check the post by Jobless Beggar Thanks for that , so you see,

7. Yes we can move forward in this country, if we tell ourselves the truth starting from you, am telling you the truth but you are declining to accept,

8.
Yar adua that stopped all the progressive reforms the country had u claim u like
Yaradua stopped? the progressive reforms, please show me some infact not some ALL .... yaradua also moved things, jonathan also did, obasanjo also did, buhari also did, abacha too, all past leaders did "moved things"

Okay paddy lo

Let se Obasanjo ( Corrupt murrafucka) awarded, the project for $8.3billion but yardua suspended it or stopped it all the same ..... - ((((http://www.railwaysafrica.com/blog/2008/10/nigeria-halts-rail-scheme/ ))))))

But yardua revived it and gave it as $500million ( i believe ) but jonathan diverted the loan so no money for the railway project since it got diverted, so common sense should say that the contract was stopped,

(((( http://www.railwaysafrica.com/blog/2010/10/nigeria-to-divert-chinese-loan/ ,,,,, http://tribunengrworld.com/how-fg-cancelled-n74bn-kano-abuja-railway-project-2547168.htm ,,,, http://dailytrust.dailytrust.com/in...o-abuja-railway-project&catid=1:news&Itemid=2)))) and as you see here, China approved it (((( http://www.economicconfidential.com...ants-nigeria-500m-loan-for-kano-lagos-railway )))

SO what he did right ?

But fortunately the national assembly stopped it ((( http://allafrica.com/stories/201012010179.html ))) and if you read the first paragraph of this article, jonathan wanted a loan of $4billion without identifying the lender (what economic policiy/idea is this certainly not what buhari would use ) if national assembly had approved it and at the end he got a lender with an interest rate of 12-15 % ???? you see, putting us in trouble and no use collecting loan as he would not be referred to as president beyond may 29 2011, only as ex-presido :lol (well hopefully)


But why did he collect another loan from china recently of $900 million ( right ) for railway abuja light rail which by the way is ($840) million and which no loan was collected for, (if am not mistaken ) the work has started, the pre-eliminary work has been completed since, and some money has been paid see the thread and see picture also near idu work is progressing, -

Sanusi is best CBN Governor in the world

THE renowned global financial intelliegence magazine- The Banker, a publication of the Financial Times of London, has conferred on the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, double awards.
The awards are the Central Bank Governor of the Year for the entire world and that of the African continent.

According to a release signed by the Country Representative, Nigeria, The Banker Magazine, Financial Times, London, United Kingdom, Mr. Kunle Ogedengbe, the magazine noted in its 2011 January edition, which will also be distributed at the World Economic Forum, Davos, Switzerland, that in the last 18 months that Sanusi has been in office, he has salvaged a crumbling Nigerian financial sector, including implementing reforms that have put Africa’s most promising market back on the map for investors globally.

Editor of the magazine, Mr. Brian Caplen, noted that few candidate names can generate an overall consensus on judging panels and yet, when it came to finding the best global central bank governor of the year, Sanusi was chosen unanimously.

Caplen stresses that Sanusi embarked on a radical anti-corruption campaign aimed at saving 24 banks on the brink of collapse and pressed for the managers involved in the most blatant cases of corruption to be charged and, in the case of two senior bankers, convicted.

Despite the big challenge of facing up to powerful people who held considerable sway in the country, Sanusi never looked back and got the support of the public as they were made aware of the scale of corruption, which made the public to support the change he promoted.

Two months into his governorship, Sanusi embarked on the bailout of Afribank, Intercontinental Bank, Union Bank, Oceanic Bank and Finbank and dismissed their chief executive officers in a move designed to show that banking is no longer business as usual but institutions that must serve the economy as a whole.
Another key reform of the banking sector introduced by Sanusi has been to limit the tenure of bank CEOs to a maximum of 10 years. They will have to leave office at the end of their term regardless of their record. This policy has already led to change of leadership at UBA, Zenith and Skye banks.

Caplen added that the reforms initiated by Sanusi have been hailed as necessary to sanitise the banking industry and that observers have argued that, had these reforms not been initiated, Nigeria would have entered into another round of banking distress.
The implementation of stricter disclosure policy by the Central Bank of Nigeria has also led to a culture of greater transparency in the sector, he said.
The magazine noted that the reforms of Sanusi are to enhance the quality of the Nigerian banks, establish financial stability in the system, provide enabling and healthy financial-sector evolution as well as ensuring that the financial sector contributes to the real sector rather than just serving the banking sector alone.
Sanusi to paddy lo is incompetent
Whether he studied islamic studies or not
