NIGERIA POLITRICKS

We are Nigerian citizens reporting commentaries and analysis on the state of affairs in Nigeria, to hold our political elites to account for the injustice done to the Nigerian people.

"Things Done Changed"...

Nigeria political landscape is ever so changing that it is reminiscent of Biggie’s classic hit song, ‘Things Done Changed’ lyrics being played out. And rightfully so indeed. Biggie vents on the album “Ready To Die” opener, “My mother’s got cancer in her breast—don’t ask me why I’m motherfuckin stressed...”. Yes, Nigeria sure has more than a cancer in her breast and we are all stressed about the state of affairs in our motherland. It will not only take the Supreme Court, but our electoral surgical experts as well; Nigerians that is, to continue to work on these issues to weed out the political hanging chads, dead beats and the less than honorable men who, by hook or crook have found themselves in the corridors of power.

Clearly a 'Things Done Changed’ Tsunami is sweeping across Nigeria. It will be premature to get carried away at this point, but we can gladly say “good riddance” to our new casualties, Speaker Etteh (madam speaker finally gave up the fight when the pressure became unbearable and after a lawmaker gave up the ghost) and her deputy -HERE , the governor of Rivers state - Celestine Omehia -HERE , Yardua's Son In law and Kebbi state governor - Usman Dakingari -HERE , Kogi state governor Ibrahim Idris -HERE and Anambra state governor - Andy Uba (though, this was a while back, but he was governor for only two weeks. Ouch, that hurts!)

So who's next? I bet the following are having sleepless nights:
the six million £££pound gorrila - David Mark
Adedibu's (thugfather of Ibadan politricks) protege and governor of Oyo state - Alao Akala
And the governors of Adamawa, Yobe, Sokoto, Delta, Oyo, Ekiti, Ondo, Osun, Edo, Enugu, Ogun states asAnxiety grips governors .

Who knows this 'Things Done Changed’ whirlwind might even turn into a coalesced category 5 hurricane-Tsunami and sweep Yardua himself...nuff said!
