State with best senators in Nigeria

Lets continue with our review of Thisday newspaper analysis of senators. If we award 1 point for every senator below average, 2 points for average and 3 points for above average, we will discover that six states are tied for joint best.
The six states are.......
Lagos: Tinubu might have handpicked those AC boys, but he really picked them right.
Ogun: I think the competition between Tinubu and Daniel is good, so Daniel neeed to make sure that the first eleven is in Abuja.
Anambra: The jekyll and hyde state. A state that will produce a chris Uba and an Ngozi Nweala at the same time. We all know that a state that have Achebe, Azikiwe, Ekwueme etc is good.
Cross River: Have you listened to Duke or Imoke? They have a tendency of producing brilliant cultured politicians like they produce pineapple, clean cities and beautiful ladies.
Enugu: Even the governor seems to be performing, so even if Nnamani was a bad governor, like Tinubu he produced good children.
Katsina: The president's own state decided to make sure the man is well supported in Abuja. Its the only state from the north but it shows that any state can send good people to Abuja if they want.
Which state tied up for the worst ....guess

Two worst senators in Nigeria.

Thisday newspaper 3 weeks ago did a special review of senators in its Sunday edition.
The grading seemed objective since they tried to back it up with data and the analysis made sense. They graded senators as either above average, average or below average.
Only two senators were exceptional. They were so bad they could not be rated as below average. This day was nice enough to describe them as uninspiring.
So join me in giving thumb down to Dahiru Bako Gassol from Taraba and Ahmed Muhammed Inuwa from Kwara.

Will Yaradua Do The Right Thing?

The president is expected today to brief a select audience about the Niger delta crisis today. Some optimist are expecting him to disclose the list of sponsors and Godfather supposedly discover by JTF.He will not because they are powerful people and he doesn't have the liver.The way we do politics in Nigeria he will not want to rock the boat.We are still waiting for the list form Okija, Haliburton etc.Maybe we will get another panel to look into and investigate the list, Naija

The Tompolo's Paper: Secrets of the Niger Delta militants.

Tompolo's parent probably started the problem by naming him Government Ekpemupolo. He therefore felt he is another government with parallel structure.
His official resident was also called 'Aso rock' and governors and oil company flocked to it daily like the other Aso rock.
We are told that even the Vice president, Goodluck Jonathan was even a visitor and was told that all his securities must drop their arms outside camp 5, since he was in another government territory.
Informed sources told us that the documents recovered from the camps is worth a king's ransom and really show that the man was running a parallel government.
Details include......
His army/ civil servant: Records of all members, their emoulment, job function etc.
His bankers: Details of all banking transactions; The legal and the money laundering.
His sponsors: The governors, politicians, agencies, oil companies etc paying him.
His agents; Who was he paying in government, oil company etc.
Minutes of his meetings with politician, traditional rulers etc
We can go on, but just wait for the documents.
