#OLIC4 was guarded by the Nigerian Police, Army, NSCDC, LASTMA, FRSC, Vigilante, bodyguards, OPMESA (joint internal security operational platform made up of Army, Navy, Air Force). There was an helicopters too. This is absolutely necessary. Security should come first at concerts.

If Phyno can shut down a 22,000 capacity stadium at Enugu, 25,000 capacity Teslim Balogun Stadium is even too small for Olamide. #OLIC4

And someone just said #OLIC4 is like N.U.R.T.W end of year party….

If Akwa Ibom State was a private investment, our story would have been like Innoson vs GTB. ZENITH BANK IS RUNNING OUR STATE NOW!

I closed my GTB account this morning. They asked me why and I told them I am doing it because of what they are doing to Innoson motors. I move the money to my Union bank account

My bank steals my money, I take them to the High Court & win
The bank goes to Court of Appeal, again I win & they were ordered to refund my stolen money with interest
Instead of obeying the court order, the bank bribes EFCC to arrest & detain me
summary of INNOSON and GT Bank

I have known the MD of GTB,Segun Agbaje and his two older brothers,Femi and Jimi, for close to 40 years.I urge him not to expose himself to the shark infested waters of politics by allowing himself to be used by these barbarians to destroy Innoson.If he does he will regret it.

4. Fuel Scarcity
The fuel supply situation in the country took a turn for the worse on Tuesday as queues of desperate motorists grew longer at many petrol stations selling Premium Motor Spirit, also known as petrol, in the states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory.

Buhari is the most incompetent President we have ever elected in the history of Nigeria. You can’t hide incompetence; just drive around the country and you’ll see the level of hopelessness this govt has brought upon the already impoverished citizens #fuelscarcity pic.twitter.com/CD5hXT39uD

In 1990, China had 57,800 km of railways.
In 2017, they have >120,000 km.
In 1990, Nigeria had fuel scarcity and long queues.
In 2017, Nigeria still has fuel scarcity and long queues.

FUEL SCARCITY AND THE DEREGULATION’ OF BLAMES
GEJ wasn’t even a Petroleum minister,but was blamed for fuel scarcity;rightly so. He was the President and the buck had to stop on his desk. 29/05/2015 he bore the blame as he handed over to GMB that promised to do things differently
