YAR'ADUA'S PUBLIC ASSETS DECLARATION

Only a president Yar’Adua is clinically capable of understanding that corruption have consequences and that he could take the right action - PRESIDENT'S PUBLIC ASSETS DECLARATION. Yar’Adua has just sent exactly the right signal to the country and to other political leaders in Nigeria. In Yar’dua's Nigeria, it is apparently okay for a president to publicly declare his assets instead of hiding under the cloak of political immunity for corruption gains, mislead and misrule to the Nigerian people.

For this action, we commend Yar’Adua!

The Nigerian political elites and their cronies may think that they are above the law and the rest of us live with the consequences of their corrupt act. The cause of equality under the law should be applicable to everyone and all Nigerian political leaders should follow the footsteps of Yar’Adua and declare their assets publicly. Failure to do so will be a contravention of the code of conduct of public officers and they should be made to face the consequences of the law. The lame duck EFCC should please take note and take ACTION!

Good morning.

I have just added your blog to a collection of all Nigerian blogs which I am currently building and which can be found here: The Nigerian Super Blog . On the site you will be able to read posts from 197 Nigerian blogs ALL from one place (this number will increase as we continue to add new blog feeds).

The preview version of The Nigerian Super Blog was launched on the 1st of July 2007 and the site is still very much in active development (thus you might experience a bug here and there). We'd be happy if you can find time to check it out (I promise you are going to love it because you will be able to read all your favorite blogs and more from one place!). Plus it will help much more people to find and enjoy your blog.

We'd also appreciate any kind of feedback, (blogs @ naijalive . net) and possibly a post about us. and if you really like the site, please tell people about it and add a link to us in your blog.

Other ways you may support this FREE project is by helping us with links or pointers to Nigerian blogs so that we can add them if they are not already there.

Thanks a lot and keep up the good work!

It's definitely is a nice step for him to take, hopefully it was taken in the right direction. The important thing however is not about himd declaring his assets. He should create an image of a performing President. He's fast acquiring the pseudoname: Mr Go-Slow. And it's very obvious where the concerns of teh citizenry stems from.

Months into his illegal adminstration, he's still to name members of his cabinet. Now, they're trying to remove opposition completely from the system by offering to accomodate the opposition in a so-called Unity Government.

I'll continue to say it. Obasanjo is still in power by proxy. His recent party coup tells it all.

Hope you're doing good today bros. All da best! :)
