    GMB, I’m a supporter of yours but please don’t pull the kind of stunt that baba iyabo pulled on Nigeria by converting & using resources of Nigeria while in office to grow obasanjo farms into what it is today! I am expecting you to leave office with the same size farm as you when you resumed. Shikena baba!

      As a president, there should be perks and opportunities that comes with that, nothing wrong with. President having more than what they came to office with. However, nigerian, African leaders take embezzlement and corruption to another especially when these countires are still underdeveloped.

    @nwa nna, are you saying that with the money he will earn as president for the next four years he cannot expand his farm?

      Why did he not use the money he’s been earning as ex head of state to grow it beyond this? People already making excuses and excusing looting in advance!

    Agriculture is the way to go. It is high time we shift away from this madness for Crude oil and Mr Buhari is leading the way in this regard.

    [Speaking in the Ogun State capital, Buhari, who was the special guest at the 40th anniversary of the state, said Obasanjo appointed him Minister of Petroleum and tolerated him for three and half years.

    [He said: “I express my thanks to General Obasanjo, who, as Head of State, made me Minister of Petroleum and tolerated me for three-and-half-years.

    He tolerated me because God knows and he knows that I am not used to working as hard as he used to, but he allowed me to last that long and allowed me to work.

    “If you go into records, that government made so much investment and infrastructural development in the petroleum industry.

    “Two refineries were built, Warri and Kaduna. More than 20 depots were built; more than 3,500 pipelines were laid; and we were exporting refined products of 100,000 barrels per day. But what do we have today?”]

    Oh, Oh, I am sure Buhari is not talking about the appointment that pre-dates Obasanjo’s 2nd coming of 1999 because that part of his appointment for PTF was handed to him under Abacha’s v Abduslamin in 1994 a post he held onto till Obasanjo ‘abrogated’ it such that the good works he (Buhari) was doing for the people under the PTF programme was stopped and the benefits to the people ceased or suspended – was stalled indeed! He probably meant in the 70s when OBJ was Head of State under known agreement/understanding following the assassination of Murtala Muhammed! Perhaps Nigerians should be told about what really happened – i.e. the change of heart in Obasanjo when he returned to the seat in 1999! If he (OBJ) appreciated what Buhari did in the 70s and again under the PTF in the country in that early 2000 – he considered (reflected rightly on) what he did in that first three and half years appointment creditable, that his services then deserved a second term as they say – ‘A good turn deserves another’, it was abrogated for the obvious fact that Obasanjo was afraid Buhari might contest elections against him; in particular with the advantage of the good job he (Buhari) was doing with the PTF appointment! With the new paradigm, Nigerians expect to be told true stories now, one expects!

    Observers suspect that Ogun State Governor’s administration is doing all these to pacify President Buhari because of the PTF appointment of Buhari he (Obasanjo) abrogated! They don’t want Buhari to take vengeance against OBJ! Now, this is part of the politics in Nigeria if you’re not familiar with the trajectory! In spite of this visit, Nigerians are anxiously waiting to know if the new probes would extend from 2003 to 2007 so as to deal with the Energy power contracts entered into outside ‘Due Process’ such that up to date, Nigeria has not gotten a reliable (any) power supply in spite of the huge sum – over 18B$Dollars spent for the projects and no significant results or benefits have dome out it!

    Above all, if by the probes being executed by the present administration and the termination of the PTF appointment by Sani Abacha considered to be a slight against M. Buhari, the Energy-power enquiry by the NSS in which OBJ’s kinsman was banned not to attend, nothing is done, then it tells or signifies that there is something like a ‘dossier’ about Buhari somewhere that will force (extract/ distil) this kind of admission by him publicly that “…..Obasanjo tolerated me!” – was sympathetic to him! And, from my observations, here lies the problem and part of the dangers about politicking in Nigeria, if you can decipher what I mean from this deduction notwithstanding, the stinging ‘falls’ innuendoes and insults unprecedented from Fani Kayode peddled against the President, whoever is advising the administration – critics are watching!
