March 6, 2016 – “Where Is The Change You Promised Us” – Ex-Nollywood Actress Regina Askia Writes Buhari

“Thank you for all your effort at containing the corruption in Nigeria however unpopular. Nigerians elected you through serious acrimony, loosing several lives and facing deadly unrest but they chose you. Though you are from the North of OUR country you are president of all.

How is it that violence and deaths still hold sway? “My hope and prayer was that on your ascension you would deploy our military with fiat and alacrity armed to the teeth and silence or at least contain Boko Haram. My prayer was that as a seasoned General you would not only flush out king pins and barons but retrieve the loot as you napped them one after the other but we see them working for you. Is this the change you promised us Mr President?
“Maybe I don’t fully understand how these things work but I know one truth ‘Women with babies on their back should not be slaughtered in their farms while out there striving to make ends meet.’ They say you did not send a condolence message to comfort the families but rather you are requesting for cattle routes for the herds men?

“There is fighting in Lagos and vicinities? Kidnappers are even negotiating exchange rates, hiking ransoms and collecting change over the victims, little girls are being kidnapped from southern states and sold off in marriage to old men off north? Is it okay to encourage pedophilia in the name of tradition?”

We, concerned citizens of the diaspora are watching and praying for a swift arrest of this drift. When the citizenry loose trust and believe that their government has their interest at heart, anarchy is unleashed and we mark the beginning of a sorry end. Mr President, where is the change you promised?”

    Oh Ragina, thanks for all this questions.. You really hit the point
    Very good reminder for Mr president.. It’s terrible to see how little girls have been demaged for life by those useless and so call traditional pedophilia men and no body is giving those innocent girls the right justices that they deserved.. And women and their babies been killed.. I keep asking where is the humanity in our country
    Kidnapping, rape,hungry poor eduction and hospital system.. We have more fake churches in Nigeria than schools..
    Bad roads..
    All this issues still clings around for years and none of leaders have tried to solve them so our people will for once live In their country without fear.
    Mr president should also work on this issues as well while he’s getting back our stolen money pls.
    Pls clean up the kidnappers because they ruined tmy city PH. And also Boko Haram too..

    Prior to the 2015 presidential polls, I was the only person in my family that spoke in Buhari’s favour. The rest believed that he would islamise Nigeria but I countered the whole argument, knowing that(according to Pastor Tunde Bakare)Buhari has a number of Christians among his staff.

    I supported him because I believed in their much vaunted change. Now, just about a week ago, my younger brother put a call through to me and just asked me: How about your Buhari? The mocking irony could not be mistaken. And I just laughed. That is how it is. It may be too early to be disappointed in Buhari. Even while i join to criticise many of his moves, somewhere at the back of my mind a faint light still glows–a drooping hope that he would turn things around for the better, someday.

    When a lady that stays in US, never came home for election nor witnessing anything near power shuttle between the last administration and the present is crying of being disappointed. There are lots of things we have to consider to know weither Buari has failed Nigerians or not. 1. ECONOMY: The sole source of income of nigeria is crude oil. During GEJ administration the price of crude oil was $140 per barrel and nothing was on ground to justify that boom. The price came down to $28 per barrel and most of our buyers especially US have boycotted our oil, even south Africa is no more buying from us. They claim people of nigeria do not enjoy the oil money, rather few government officials pocketed the money. 2. SECURITY: There is no enough ammunitions for our military to combat Boko Harram as they wish to, they’re just managing the little they have. I believe all of us aware what happened to the money for ammunition procurement. With that little ammunitions, our military is doing a fantastic job even far better than what they were doing during the GEJ administrations. Let’s try to recollect that during the last administration our military could not enter Sambisa forest let alone fighting Boko Haram. 3.DEBT: we should not forget that huge debt were left for this present administrations to face. Federal workers were owed so many months salary, state governments also owed their workers, foreign debt is there as well. With little internally generated revenue they could get they tried to give a bail out funds to the states to settle their workers. I do not know a project that requires no money for execution and where is that money ? My question for Regina Askia is that where was she during Jonathan’s regime that she could not ask him how he managed all the money nigeria got during the oil boom ? Also, where did she hear Buari asking about the cattles and not minding those lost their lives during the fracas ? I reserve the rest of my questions for future post.

    I still believe it is too early to start asking questions because Nigeria is in a bad shape at the moment and it will take some years for these changes to take effect. The change we are craving for will not come overnight because the damage has been there for ages but as far as Nigeria is concerned ,change is inevitable but cannot come overnight/instantly. WE as a people should first accept there is need for a change without fear and move forward

    Good morning to the whole world, Happy New Month.
    Quite along time, It’s well with you all in Jesus mighty name (AMEN), The Lord has revealed many revelation to me about this regime and some times ago I said what the Lord revealed to me about the bad people in that donate the ruling party in Nigeria right now, Let examine this : a car that is fully fell and is in good working Condition with many people with good dreams and focus inside the car but the driver is leading and directed by evil spirits, would the car get the car take the people to their promises land?.
    Nigeria is the car the few good people in the car are the people that have the Love of the Country Nigeria that were in APC the ruling party, the driver that is fully control by the evil spirits are the well knowing prominent top top people that is controlling in Nigeria.
    This is the revelation that the Lord revealed to me on this regime of APC and ever since I said some well knowing Nigerians in the party has been worrying me.

    Hello my sister, your comments was very well accepted, what you should know is that you cannot make the change like you are changing wrapper, even to change wrapper sometimes take some hours, but this is changing the whole bad roads the last administrations has created for Nigerians all over, changing the evils and greedy ways the few people swallowed the whole economy of Nigerians, hope you are reading news from Nigeria, just now, some body kept 1 million dollars in his house cash, hope that cannot be done in USA or any other develop world even in small countries that surrounds our nation, we are all happy for the change, but we should be patient with Mr. President, he is not a sprit, he is a human just like you and me moreover he is ageing, remember he is now ruling the nation by constitutions not by Decree, let be patient and hope things will soon change, remember that all most all the people in the ruling party is the same people that destroyed Nigeria, they just hang their coat of corruption somewhere, waiting for any lip hole,
    But only one thing I will like to tell Mr. President, Sir with due respect, try to check the killings in Nigeria, there is so much blood shielding in Nigeria, there is so much blood of the Innocent, poured out everyday, I am very much ashamed to present myself as a Nigerian in the mist of other Nationalities, where they will ask you, that your country is full of blood, are we in the civil war? AN EYE SORE SEEING A WOMAN KILLED WITH HER BABY ON HER BACK, What is the cost of a cow to a human being? TO AN INNOCENT BABY? Tears is not allowing me to continue… but one thing is this, THIS INNOCENT BLOOD WILL FIGHT BACK OOOO soonest not after. AND WHEN IT STARTS, there will be no hiding place for everybody. all pastors, all Imams, all traditionalist, all hand must be on deck to stop this killings,

    GEJ aministration was not appreciated by some, but still an average family in Nigeria could train their children through school, there was fuel all through, the poor could have at least 2 square meal in a day. But now all of this has become impossible in Nigeria and many families. See our children dropping out of schools, thousands loosing their jobs, increase in transportation by the day and rapid increase of food stuffs in d market, yet Nigerians are still supporting this evil an hoping for change, what other change do we need in other to know where we are heading to as a nation? For those of us still hoping for drastic change, pls pray hard bcos from my point of view, the worst is yet to suffice from dis administration at least it’s not the first time we have experience Buhari’s style of leadership “difficulties has always been d case”.
