WHEN TODDLERS TASTE HONEY: Inibehe Effiong as a Case Study...

When I have time later in the day, maybe I'll just use this boy's bitterness as an opportunity to relax不不不不

We'll check history, check each sector from history till now.
Don't worry, Effiong is a baby lawyer不不
Don't trouble yourself when you see small boys like @InibeheEffiong doing everything to be noticed in the public, he's just a baby lawyer that started his life 6yrs ago.
If a child does not know history, at least ancestors must have told him some historical facts in Akwa Ibom.不
As at the time @InibeheEffiong's ancestors were hiding under the juniper tree in the village in Akwa Ibom, Buhari's name was already part of Nigeria's success HISTORY as a young Soldier. This boy running naked everyday online because of Buhari is just youthful exuberance. #IGNORE

So this is @ChibuikeAmaechi fact-checking @PeterObi today in Kano.

Turns out virtually everything Obi said at #NGTheCandidates yesterday about #RailUPng Projects was UNTRUE.

So yesterday, I read this article shared by our egbon @Olusegunverdict and I registered my personal opinion as a Nigerian.
Today, I hope to compile everything I said in a thread for easy accessibility.
#MyRebuttalToHisVerdict issa threadleggooo綾綾
This may take a little time, the reason is simply because I might have to be away from my PC once in a while to attend to some network issues (Na that one dey feed my family for now).
But as much as I can update this thread, I will be quick to do so #MyRebuttalToHisVerdict
No, any view to any article or thread by anybody is not personal & that does not reduce the regards we have for those we look up to.
Just that during election season like this, we must all come to a conclusion that the best of men, are still men at their best. We can disagree!

In Nigeria, please NEVER assume that educated folks (even Professors) understand the basic statement they are arguing about especially in politics.
This person on facebook said Buhari admin has no #PolicyDirection, so I did a little tutorial as basic as possible for her
THREAD
#PolicyDirection
Thank you for raising a few issues, & such issues are enough for conversation. So let's use the Latin maxim in law you stated: Res ipsa loquitor...Let FACTS speak:

Don't take my words for it, don't run EMOTION on it, let's use the maxim Law: Res ipsa loquitor
#PolicyDirection
So let's start from the basis with FACT that Nigeria poverty didn't start in 2015.
Now you said "lack of policy direction in combating poverty and making economy boisterous"....

Jonathan was as confused as his Sambo...

But Buhari gave Osinbajo free hands

President @MBuhari Administration is getting Nigeria back on track with Rail revolution. #PMBProjects #RailUpNg
Nigerias Narrow-Gauge Rail System was conceived in the 1890s and built between 1898 & 1926, with a total length of 3,500KM. It consists of two primary lines; Lagos to Nguru and Port Harcourt to Maiduguri with spur lines to Eleme, Baro, Kaura Namoda and other places. #PMBProjects
These critical economic assets have since become decrepit, having suffered significant decline due to lack of investments in infrastructure maintenance.
