Tony Blair and George Bush joined Nigeria’s business and political elite at an awards ceremony yesterday and pledged their support to the oil-rich country’s new acting president.

The former British prime minister and ex-U.S. president were invited to the event in the capital city of Abuja by host, newspaper mogul Nduka Obaigbena, though neither of them spoke at the event. Continue Reading….

Who the HELL invited those war criminals?

We all know what happens to nations who sit on oil.

Will Nigeria suffer the same fate as Iraq?

What’s really going on here?

  1. Just grease the right/wrong palms & you’re good as gold. To be frank, the West needs our corruption, helps them get cheap crude oil, land, government contracts & money. Since, none of our refineries work, we import petrol – which is our crude oil refined in the west. Plus, they sell the crude at domestic prices to certain foreign companies. Which of course, means we get short changed & still don’t get the money. The Nigerian treasury, is basically a glorified walk in bank, if you’ve got the key or if you know someone, that knows someone, that knows someone, who’s got the key.

    Then don’t get me started with all these buggers (former military heads of states) coming back trying to be presidents. My fave tyrant being Babaginda, who had the nerve to run for presidency, with a catchy slogan driven campaign.

    Will we suffer Iraq’s fate? Don’t think so, all they need to do is bring in the dollars & pounds. Synergy is such a lovely thing.

  2. I’m with you on this one Janice, Wha a gwan here, from time I see Bush, Blair and lady Rice, I know some real F’ery (mind my french pls) is about to go down!

  3. Match made in hell i guess. R.I.P Saddam. H. Weapons of mass destruction, etc, etc… Oh dear, the excuses they make when it goes down badly are priceless.

  4. Ditto Adaobi. I cannot see the revelance of having Bush and Blair there, except but to talk a lot of shit…

    Blair said…… ” Blair met with Jonathan on Saturday to express satisfaction over relations between Nigeria and the UK. He also said he hoped Nigeria would CONTINUE TO PLAY A LEADING ROLE in the Africa ;-( . ‘First of all I would say I am delighted to have seen the acting president and to discuss with him and hear from him the situation here in Nigeria and the wider region and we were able to talk about some of the issues that are of mutual interest to the relationship between Britain and Nigeria,’ he said.

    ‘That relationship is a strong one, and I want it to stay strong.
    ‘I have done lots of work with the previous president of Nigeria while I was in the office and all of Africa and we know that without Nigeria fulfilling its potentials and exacting its leadership, it will be greatly difficult for the whole of Africa,’ he said. “…………

    Oh god, pure bull crap… WE HAVEN’T GOT ANY ELECTRICITY, WHAT F’KG LEADERSHIP !!! lets Light up Nigeria please and get some electricity PERMANENTLY !!! . – log on and sign the petition. Lets hope the new president will be logging on and doing something about this embarassment QUICK !!!. ( f–k the constant use of generators )

    ‘Good luck Jonathan’ needs to get down to business, real quick instead of paying money to entertain these insignificant nobodys. KMFT !!! 😦

  5. LOL @ Agnes, i was reading an article a while ago about rebranding africa. Whether it is the way forward. The question is who benefits from this image that the African continent has at the moment? The saviours and the saved image. Your guess is as good as mine. LOL
