On Open Letters, Cheques, Jets, Oduahficate, Impersonations and Awards



I see the trend of open letters have continued although I must confess this recent one from Chief Edwin K. Clark has a different undertone to it with some ethnic tones. The letter is scathing attack on Obasanjo but sadly he diverted at some point in the letter and focused mainly on Obasanjo’s negatives which doesn’t bode too well. We haven’t see the end of “open letters” though.




So Adams Oshiomole gave out another cheque to another hawker. There are so many things wrong with this; I hope he’s ready to be offering cheques to every hawker because what is good for the goose is good for the gander. Is the money his personal money or government money? I don’t think it is under his jurisdiction to be giving money away to random citizens like that. What are the odds he won’t be setting up “beggars” and giving money to them too.




We once heard Nigeria had the highest number of private jets in Africa or so; how fitting then that the President of this same country has over 10 jets in his presidential fleet. There’s been rumours and counter rumours of the President going to Kenya with 7 Jets. When reports came in that the President recently acquired jet number 11, tongues were wagging. For a country that spends so much on irrelevant things already; I’m thinking of a better explanation the presidency will give.





How long will it take Stella Oduah to realise her cup is getting full? Reports of her faking an M.Sc in one of the schools in the US is alarming. And the fact they were removed from her credentials and CV adds credence to the reports. I find this very disturbing, a committee should have been set up to verify these reports but we all know how these things work.





One has got to wonder how much these guys who impersonate others make from these shameful acts of impersonation. We saw a purported picture of Banky W engaged in debauchery making the rounds, thankfully he refuted the claims. Doris Simeon also complained about the same thing; while I can accept hers under the auspices of people trying to make money, I still don’t get Banky W’s own. Why would you want to tarnish someone’s image? It’s so unfair.





I understand the support for Mikel to become the African player of the year but I was dismayed at the fact it was only Nigeria that canvassed for him. Why Drogba made that list I would never know but CAF should know that aphorisms like this can degrade the award and make a spectacle of it, meanwhile congrats to Yaya Toure for scooping the award for a 3rd time. There’s no denying he’s in superb.
