The promises get growing. Nine new universities. New secondary school curriculum... Now new airports across the nation. This is nothing short of governance by fiat. No clear-cut policies on most of the issues. The promises are becoming too many to be considered credible. It seems GEJ is getting desperate.

Yes some of these promises are not addressing the core issues affecting the masses.  GEJ's campaign promises seem too bogus.  His advisers should have a word with him before he misses the track.
I agree. Nigeria needs leaders who have clear idea of the critical needs of the people and the nation. This necessarily should be backed up with policy documents. As the incumbent President, with his retinue of advisers and consultants, this should have given him a clear advantage. His promises don't reflect this advantage at all. He only tells his audience what appeals to their fancy.
The people in charge of our so call government are they not nigerians do they need special advisers or consultant to tell them what the nigerians what, if they have good policy in they should do what is right.

He is making this promises out of desperation and forgeting to address issues that are of national importance, issues like, power, security, corruption, employment and others. GEJ seems not to have any clear-cut polocies on national development, he is more concerned on making regional promises.

Okiemute, the issue isn't that our political leaders need advisers and consultants to direct them about what the people need. That was never intended or mentioned in my submission. The issue is this: government pronouncements should be informed by a well thought-out plan/policy. This would have addressed such issues as the feasibility of a project, the financial requirements, socio-economic implications of the project, the anticipated risks and mitigants, etc. This is where the President has an advantage over his opponents who don't have access to a massive array of experts and professionals. Mere pronouncements don't constitute policies.

 

The concern is that the right thing needs to be done. Nigerians shouldn't be taken for a ride again. We need leaders who understand the issues and are ready to work. Not those who would only make promises that may seem far-fetched, particulaly when such promises are becoming incresingly 'bogus' as Charles observed. Afterall, who no like better thing? Not every critical mind is a bad belle.
