Between November 17, 1993 and June 8, 1998 , during which the late dictator, General Sani Abacha, held Nigeria in his vicious grip, he treated the treasury like a hapless cow being milked to death.....


... Abacha was not contented with raping the country through kickbacks from inflated contracts. He dipped his hands into the vaults of @cenbank where the strong currencies of the United States of America and British held out great attraction for him.

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!

I had already seen your article on Premium Times. You sure made me laugh as you tried real hard to sound technical while responding to Prof. Osinbajo. Your article is less than watery, if there's anything like that, and I will show you why. Stay with me.
The issue 'of "geographical restructuring" isn't a new/vague concept created by Prof. Osinbajo. In his response earlier today. He explained it as creation of states, or going back to regionalism. He even cited the 2014 confab report that recommended the creation of 18 more states
which would obviously lead to more administrative costs.

How you, @atiku, ignored that and claimed that Prof. was vague with the "geographical restructuring" concept is beyond me.
