AFRICASTALLESTMAN SAVES THE INTERNET BY EXTINGUISHING A FIRE
GOV. PETER OBI quotes that set the internet on fire…
AND THE FIRE WAS QUICKLY EXTINGUISHED TO SAVE THE INTERNET.
Quotes are in inverted commas, responses in bold.
“As Governor, I left N75billion saved for my successor….” – Peter Obi.
A GOVERNMENT IS NOT A SAVINGS BANK. THE USA IS THE NUMBER ONE DEBTOR IN THE WORLD AND THE MOST PROSPEROUS COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.
BY NOT USING THE MONEY TO BETTER THE LIVES OF ANAMBRANIANS, YOU LEFT IT FOR YOUR HANDPICKED SUCCESSOR TO …….?
“To you young people, Take Back your Country…it is your future they are toying with”. – Peter Obi.
“I reduced my convoy to 5 vehicles and you cannot buy fuel unless I am in the car”.- Peter Obi.
ALL FIVE VEHICLES HAVE THE SAME TANK CAPACITIES AND PETER OBI IS IN ALL FIVE AT THE SAME TIME!
PETER OBI ALSO PUMPS GAS INTO THE CARS TO PREVENT BEING SWINDLED BY THE ATTENDANTS SAVING 20 NAIRA PER VEHICLE.
“If I sleep in a hotel and have to pay N250k a night, I will be awake all night…feeling like I was robbed”. – Peter Obi.
UNLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SLEEPING NEXT DOOR AND YOU GET A CHANCE TO MEET HIM. ONE MILLION NAIRA MAY BE TOO LITTLE.
YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
“You know there are many big men in Anambra state, so when they want to see me, I say to them I will come to you instead”.- Peter Obi.
AFTER GOING TO THEM, WHAT DO YOU GIVE THEM IN RETURN. NOTHING GOES FOR NOTHING!
“We handed schools back to Churches and by 2013, we were number one in WAEC.”- Peter Obi.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE WHO CANNOT PAY THE HIGH PRIVATE SCHOOL FEES? DO YOU SUBSIDIZE THEM?
DO YOU HAVE A STUDY TO SUBSTANTIATE YOUR CLAIMS?
“I beg you to participate more in politics, the society we help them abuse today will take its revenge tomorrow”.- Peter Obi.
“The only way out of recession is to spend for growth. You can only spend for growth either from savings or from borrowing.
The question is: what are you borrowing for?
Are you borrowing for consumption or for production?
When you borrow for consumption, you are heading for disaster.”
— Peter Obi.
TRUE FOR GOVERNMENTS. GOVERNMENTS SHOULD NOT BORROW FOR RECURRENT EXPENDITURE OR CONSUMPTION.
BORROWING SHOULD BE FOR INFRASTRUCTURE, CAPITAL PROJECTS, AND JOINT VENTURES OR PRODUCTION.
PRODUCTION INCLUDES, AIDING LOCAL MANUFACTURERS AS DONE IN CHINA.
NOT TRUE FOR INDIVIDUALS. THE WORLD’S LARGEST ECONOMY, THE US IS FUELED BY CONSUMPTION. CHINA IS TRYING TO SPUR DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION AND REDUCE EXPORTS. THERE IS A LIMIT TO GROWTH FUELED MAINLY BY EXPORTS.
SAVINGS HAVE TO BE CONSUMED OR THERE IS NO GROWTH.
IF YOU SAVE TO BUILD A SHOE AND WATCH FACTORY AND SELL ONLY “TWO SHOES AND ONE WATCH,” YOU ARE HEADED INTO BANKRUPTCY.
SOMEONE HAS TO BUY THE PRODUCTS OF PRODUCTION. THE GOAL IS TO STRIKE A BALANCE.
YOU CANNOT GROW UNLESS YOU SELL. SELLING MEANS SOMEONE IS CONSUMING.
” I had to stop the Presidential lodge in Anambra… A project awarded at 400million. I had to close down state house in lagos and Abuja… Because I felt we don’t need it…. Even when other states had.” – Peter Obi.
“They said President Obasanjo is coming… I went to borrow the kind of cars they wanted… Instead of spending millions… From a neighbouring state.” – Peter Obi.
YOU BORROWED FROM A STUPID NEIGHBORING GOVERNOR. WHY NOT USE YOUR OWN CAR? BY BAD MOUTHING THE GOVERNOR, YOUR SUCCESSOR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BORROW FROM THE SAME GOVERNOR.
THE US PRESIDENT FLIES HIS CARS TO HIS DESTINATION, OBASANJO CAN.
“I requested Obasanjo to spend the nights in my lodge Since they said he must sleep over… I asked my wife to pack out of my bedroom… We went opposite to lodge in a hotel (name mentioned) for the week, we paid N30,000 instead of N100,000.” – Peter Obi.
FIRST, THEY SAID, “KIND OF CARS,” AND NOW, THEY SAID, “HE MUST SLEEP OVER.”
WHY NOT TELL THEM TO GO TO HELL?
WHY NOT SLEEP ON A MATTRESS IN THE OZA ROOM TO SAVE MORE MONEY.
YOU JUST DENIED THE ANAMBRA HOTEL OWNERS OF INCOME.
“I used the 150million for 2 bullet proof cars to buy almost 50 Peugeot cars at 3 million each.. gave 17 to JUDGES and 18 to permanent Secretaries (because i discovered they did not have cars) and kept 10 for govt house… which I used as Governor… I did not use bullet proof cars as Governor.” – Peter Obi.
WHAT HAPPENED TO MONETIZING BENEFITS? WERE THESE INDUCEMENTS?
YOU DID NOT USE BULLET PROOF CARS BUT YOU USED POLICEMEN WITH BULLETS.
WHY NOT TRAVEL WITH JUST ONE CAR AND NOT FIVE TO SAVE MORE MONEY?
“They said we should attend world Igbo Congress in U. S…. That the budget WAS cut from 40 to 32million…. I asked them why… That only one person should go and come and tell us what was discussed.” – Peter Obi.
YOU SHOULD STOP LISTENING TO, “THEY SAID.” YOU ARE A GOVERNOR AND SHOULD BE SAYING, NOT LISTENING TO GOSSIP.
ATTENDING WORLD IGBO CONGRESS IS A USELESS EXERCISE.
“Instead of paying 30,000 for each security personnel (about 30) per night in Abuja, I told IG to give me Police whenever am in Abuja….I travel alone… People complained…. The 15 drivers lodged in Abuja state house…who come to airport to cause confusion, i asked them to go, kept only 3. The others to go back to Akwa or look for job… I asked the cook to go back to Akwa instead of giving him 30,000 per plate.” – Peter Obi.
THERE IS ALWAYS WASTE IN GOVERNMENT AND THAT WASTE GROWS THE ECONOMY. ARE THESE THUGS OR SECURITY PERSONNEL?
DID YOU PROVIDE ALTERNATE JOBS TO THE FURLOUGHED?
YOU SACKED YOUR ONE COOK AND YOUR WIFE DID ALL THE COOKING. UNBELIEVABLE!
“When Governors lodge and Govt house was burnt before I came… With budget of 400 million and 300 million, I repaired them for 42 million and 80 million, respectively. They wanted to impeach me that I did not spend by due process… Following the awarded Contracts and contractor…. I saw a table… That my predecessor used, they said its old… I asked them to renovate it… That all i needed was a table to write as Governor… ” – Peter Obi.
GREAT TO ADJUST THE CONTRACTS DOWNWARDS.
ACCOUNTING HAS DEPRECIATION FOR A REASON. OLD TABLES HAVE TO REPLACED SO THE TABLE MANUFACTURER CAN MAKE NEW TABLES.
BY MAKING NEW TABLES, THE BUSINESS GROWS, THE ECONOMY GROWS AND THE OWNER PROSPERS.
“So, so, so I was able to save money and made sure that ANAMBRA HAS THE BEST ROAD NETWORK THAN ANY OTHER STATE IN NIGERIA…..” – Peter Obi.
NGIGE STARTED THE ROAD REVOLUTION.
SUCCEEDING GOVERNORS HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO FOLLOW NGIGE’S FOOTSTEPS.
GOVERNMENT IS NOT A SAVING INSTITUTION.
WHY DIDN’T YOU SAVE YOUR SECURITY VOTE OR DID YOU SAVE IT AT NEXT, ABUJA OR RETURN IT TO ASO ROCK.
PETER OBI….WORDS ON MARBLE! ”
ONLY THE GULLIBLE WILL BE DECEIVED
