Let us examine the corruption-driven subsidy payment facts:
*N151.9 billion in 2006
*N188 billion in 2007
*N256.3 billion from January to July 2008
*N421.5 billion in 2009
*N673 billion in 2010 Now in 2011, N1.3 trillion!
This amount was later revised upward by the Ministry of Finance to N2.19 trillion!
pertinent question here is: How come subsidy payment jumped from N673
billion in 2010 to N2.19 trillion in 2011? amounting to a 225.4%
increase in one year!?
The answer is simple:2011 was an election year
and the Jonathan government needed huge sum of money to fund its
election campaigns. So the Jonathan regime, through the Ministry of
Finance, jerked up subsidy payments in 2011 in order to be able to run
its campaign, bribe INEC officials to change election results, appease
the elites, Obas, Emirs, Obis and other traditional rulers,bribe the
media, hire thugs to kill, snatch ballot boxes, cause havoc on election
days and other criminal electoral activities.
Through the partial
removal of subsidy, the Jonathan regime made us pay for what the PDP
government and corrupt politicians used to campaign its successful 2011
general elections!Few years after the 2011 general elections, the
Jonathan government started planning towards the 2015 general elections.
Upon realizing that there was no way it could remove subsidy on
Petroleum again to fund elections having partially done so in 2012and
was vehemently opposed by Nigerians, it retorted to other means:
INSECURITY in the North East fueled by the activities of Boko Haram
insurgents!Remember that in 2012,Patrick Aziza, the former National
Security Adviser (NSA), blamed the PDP leaders for the escalation of
Boko Haram insurgency and he was thereafter silenced.
In order to
ensure that the PDP had enough money to fund its 2015general elections
campaign, the Jonathan regime had to deliberately prolong the war
against Boko Haram and ask for security funds every year on pretense
that such funds were being used to buy arms, military hardwares and
fight Boko Haram insurgency. Whereas, some of the monies are being kept
for the2015 elections campaign, bribe INEC officials, settle corrupt PDP
leaders and elite Nigerians, bribe the media, and other private
collaborators, hire thugs to kill, snatch ballot boxes, disrupt
elections, cause havoc on election days and other criminal electoral
Did you now know why there was so much corruption in the military: Oritshejafor-gate,Dasuki-gate, Badeh-gate, Diezani-gate?
you now see where the monies that were shared among PDP leaders and
their collaborators came from?Did you now know why the war against Boko
Haram was not won under Goodluck Jonathan?Did you now know why the US
government said that under Goodluck Jonathan there was no political will
to save the Chibok girls and win the war against insurgency?Did you now
know why the American government refused to sell to us, its war
planes?This was how callous and inhuman Jonathan regime was: it funded
its successful 2011 elections by hurting you and I, and funded its
failed 2015 elections at the expense of the lives of the North East
people and the Chibok girls!I tell you some people when they die, they
will be rejected on earth, in heaven and in hell.
There will be no resting place for you GEJ!
Call me anything you like, i dont care but continue to preach the truth.
