NRM Set To Launch #NotTooPoorToRun Campaign Ahead of 2019 General Elections

In the face of various political activities ahead of the 2019 general elections, permutations have kick started as politicians and political parties strategze to either gain power or retain it.

While the money bags are busy spreading money here and there, the young emerging leaders are left with nothing but their dreams and sincere aspirations. The biggest challenge facing them is lack of funding for electoral consultations and campaigns. Reason why great minds with incredible leadership skills always shy away from politics because they think they do not have the finances needed to face the fraudulent money bags in the system. 

Most of the time these young leaders don't even have money to buy nomination forms which are always too exorbitant for the average Nigerian. This in itself is a deliberate plan by the old gladiators to keep recycling the themselves in the corridors of power. 

With the passage of the #NotTooYoungToRun Bill into law, the young and patriotic people of Nigeria are optimistic that the right time has come for them to take center stage in providing the leadership that Nigerians have earnestly waited for. With the challenges of financing ahead of them however, it became necessary that a step be taken that will activate the capacities of young people irrespective of their financial backgrounds. This is why the #NotTooPoorToRun campaign was initiated as an activation response to the #NotTooYoungToRun law.

The #NotTooPoorToRun campaign, an initiative of The National Rescue Movement (NRM) which will be officially launched in a couple of weeks, seeks to provide an enabling platform within the party for young aspiring leaders by granting nomination forms/tickets in all electoral categories free of charge to all aspirants in the 2019 elections. 

Addressing newsmen recently, the National Chairman of the party, Senator Saidu Dansadau said; 

"This initiative became necessary because if governance continue to remain in the hands of crooked money bags, then the hope of achieving a better Nigeria will remain an illusion forever. This is because humble, true and sincere Nigerians will never have the chance to serve their Nation politically".

My most intellectual posts for the week...

Knowing how much I love Nigeria, I am interested in posts that talk about what is wrong with Nigeria and how to fix it.

There is this dude called Kalu Aja who knows a lot about economy. The economy in Nigeria is something I would like to get better. As much as I am excluded from much of the suffering (by virtue of heaven's intervention in providing for me, if you are Christian, you would love my blog) I want Nigeria to be better.

I read a lot of newspapers especially the ones that I have worked at. BusinessDay Nigeria fascinates me because I get to participate in translating it to a newspaper/digital company so some of the stories naturally interest me.

This week I loved:

Nigeria’s biggest problem is not corruption, it is Federal CharacterNigeria’s biggest problem is not corruption but Federal Character.

Federal Character is the “PROPORTIONAL” allocation of projects, appointments to Nigerians and Nigerian States irrespective of competence, science, need or empirical analysis, simply tribe coded as States is used. Read more.

Ex-FIFA president Blatter happy to be in Russia

Ex-FIFA President Sepp Blatter said he is happy to be back in Moscow, three years after his last visit. Blatter undertook his last visit for the 2018 World Cup qualifying draw in July 2015 at a time when he felt it unsafe to visit any other country for fear of being detained on a warrant from the United States Justice Department in its football corruption investigation. Read more.

There is another story called, 'Why Ajaokuta won't work', it speaks about all the craziness that went into the making of Nigeria. You will have to visit BusinessDay to read it.

Falz the bad guy be shaking the tables

Falz the bad guy shook so many tables
basically confronting corruption in different ramifications
and the various ridiculous metaphors of what is Nigeria

He even talked about Fulani herdsmen what even elected officers were afraid to talk about
He talked about money swallowing animals
Armed robber SARS that you have to bail yourself when they catch you
and yet even though the innocent are caught daily

They cannot touch the real criminals
You will enjoy the video
He touched on the health system, the hypocrisy of the church (my hand nor dey there o, let the Lord be the judge, I am not judging)

Electricity, #lazynigerianyouths, massacres, bailing yourself from police officers
yahoo, yahoo, the transmission dude,

A line in the song:

When looters and killers are still conducting elections

...This democracy
political hysteria

DIY: How to ensure that your land is real, before making a purchase.

I love my blog readers. I love myself.
In life, especially life in Nigeria where there can be as many scams as there are opportunities, a useful skill to acquire is the ability to distinguish between scams and the real. When it comes to land, there is some due diligence that you need to do so that your hard earned cash is invested in the right quarters.
In the days of family scamming each other, individuals or organisations scamming each other, just know that the first person you need is a lawyer (I can recommend some good ones if you need my help). Then please do not do business with your family, they will eat your money then look you in the eye and double dare you to get justice. DON'T. I have so many sob stories of people who have been scammed.
Pay your lawyer well so you can get good advice.
Get qualified people to handle the things that you need done, and don't think your presence is not needed in the investment decisions of life. Your absence from such financial deals is evidence that you will get scammed.
I want to share this article with you that teaches you all the legal documents you require before purchasing any land.
Land verification is an integral part of any real estate transaction. When purchasing a  land in Nigeria it is of utmost importance that you are well-informed on the details involved before you pay in cash for it. There are quite a number of things to look out for when you want to acquire a land in Nigeria. The modern day advent of real estate scam, potential trouble from thugs a.k.a omonile and fraud as made it quite necessary to carry out real estate transactions through a verified real estate company and reputable professionals like a lawyer, land surveyor and a real estate agent. Hiring professionals is important because they will assist you to do a proper land verification so as to avoid hiccups in the nearest future.
There are also vital documents that are quite important part of your real estate transactions. These documents are:
  • Survey Plan
  • Excision
  • Gazette 
  • Certificate of Occupancy
  • Deed of assignment
  • Governor's Consent
  • Receipt
None of the above documents can be substituted for the other. Each of the documents must be verified by experts in order to confer true ownership of the land. There are some guidelines to follow that would help you with your land verification. Below are the tips you should consider before you purchase any land in Nigeria:
  • Use a verified real estate platform in other to avoid been scammed by fraudsters.
  • Request for a copy of the survey plan and let the Surveyor help you cross check it with the coordinates
  • Ask for the excision file number of the intended land in order to check if the land is available
  • Ensure you allow your lawyer check the documents involved in the real estate transaction
  • Ask for the counsel of your  real estate agent about the  land
Verification is very critical in any real estate transaction. Buying a land without a verification process is highly risky venture. Kindly share your thoughts below with other PropertyPro readers.
