in our beloved country.
imagine a state like Bayelsa, with a population of less than 2m people,
collecting over N20b for more than 3 years and when the allocation dropped to
less than N5b, it could not pay its workers for over 4months and Adamawa state
at the peak of oil boom, it was collecting about N5b, with a population more
than twice the (about 5m) population of Bayelsa, has never defaulted in the

PMB, left to me, don’t negotiate with these glutinous and heartless group of
vampires. Subdue them, not for anybody’s sake, but for the sake of saving their
people who just watch helplessly as a tiny group of irresponsible people wining

means of sourcing for funds in order to bring about quantum leap in our
depressed and underdeveloped nation.
raise enough resources to change the socio- economic landscape of the country
is task that must done.
