I am tempted to start this post with the simple one-liner, LOL.
Well,it’s obvious now that he heard all but was just waiting for an opportunity to let us know his church mind on this matter. That opportunity presented itself at an evening spent with the creative youth, tagged ‘The Conversation’.
Who better to bless with this message than impressionable Generation Y creatives and unconventional all-round creatives. The very ones who have been reading these messages that we had been putting out?
Anyway, we are either going to have to block our ears or get used to it o! Because the President has said he won’t stop blaming the past government. For him, it is the only way of revealing things that might have been hidden from us for the past 16 years.
Here’s an excerpt:
“I am going to bore you with what we met. I know that I am being accused in the papers of passing the buck, but passing the buck is sometimes absolutely necessary to remind people who take things for granted.
“When we came in, I screamed to high heavens because I had promised a lot while seeking votes.
“I asked, where is the saving? There was no saving. There was no infrastructure, power, rails, roads, there was none. What did we spend the money on? I was told (on) buying food and petrol.
“Where were the billions going? We conducted a study and found out that the oil marketers were committing fraud on at least one-third of what they were importing, which was about 25 per cent of our foreign exchange.
“The youth must watch our elite, especially with the condition in which we have found ourselves. It is unpatriotic for anybody to pretend that economically we have no problem.
“I have bored you with this long explanation because there are things that could be hidden from you by those that have mismanaged the country in the last 16, 17 years.”
Well, what can we do eh?
