photoblog image Don't Recycle

Don't Recycle

On a rainy day to work, this poster really fit the mood if you know what I mean. Nigeria will be carrying out elections next year. This is one of the candidates. I pray we get a fresh president. I'm tired of all the recycling going on. Lets move forward ever, backward never.

From the state of the bill board, we can see what some people feel.

I wish more Nigerians were willing to damn the consequences and fight for what they believ is right. I guess thats just wishful thinking sad
E Etomi: Its like weve been programmed to do the opposite. Military dictatorship has left its mark.
Nice once Eminem

GOD noooooo, Doth my eye see what I am seeing? one of the harshest AND corrupt AFRICAN DICTATORS campaigning to be President?

FIRSTLY
1. Who allowed him to compete?
2. Are Nigerians going to be that dumb to vote for him?
3. Is he really that vain to want to be president again after all the atrocities he committed during his self imposed "reign"?

Oh well I really hope he does not get anywhere with this, but knowing Nigeria and Nigerians, Money talks and "truth", "honey" and all take a very long holiday. SHAME.

Anyway to the picture, not bad, was this taken through the front windscreen? If yes, well done. smile
Suby
E Etomi: Well it hasn't reached the competition stage but he is setting up for it and has the influence and money to get what he wants.

I took the pic through the side window..

Question, do Nigerians "REALLY VOTE" for ANYBODY ?

To Vote or not to Vote
That is the question.

to be fair on the guy, i dont recall him openly revealin his intentions to run for president!!! It might just be his people out there trynna get him to for now. I am glad nigerians are doing the right thing and trynna put a stop to this insanity. I would personally gather a riot of people to ensure such billboards are not lurking around anywhere in the country!!! It's absolutely disgusting how Nigerians tend to behave like hungry wolves liking the blood of swords in the wilderness till they cut their toungues and bleed to death!!! God help us is all i have to say!!!

Say it 'aint so! You've got to be kidding me! Pray he doesn't win!
Now, about the shot, Good shot. I think it's good it came out dark, partially blurred, and ominous - an analogy of IBB's delirous campeign
