A Tale of Two Quotes :-)

"Alamieyeseigha has shown himself to be a dishonourable fellow, unfit to rule, unfit to sit among men and women of honour and integrity, unfit to preach to the people that he leads about ideals and values." -~ Dr. Reuben Abati, writing in The Guardian on November 25, 2005.
"Nigerians Reaction To Alamieyeseigha's Pardon Is ‘Sophisticated Ignorance."
~ Dr Reuben Abati, March 16th, 2013

Very unfortunate that many lof these men that appeared to be fighting for human right are falling day by day as they mingle with the government. Please look at Mr. Fetus Keyamo, Ezakhome now Abati. In deed the love of money is the root of all evil. Let us pray for Nigeria

Wonder why Nigerians are surprised about Bro. Reuben, pls check out Genesis 49 vs 2-4 for the real meaning of that name. He is only acting in character....a betrayer! He needs a change of name and deliverance pronto

Abati has also shown himself to be a dishonorable fellow, not fit to hold and position of repute after this Jonathan misadventure. He is a deceit, an interloper and a disgrace to journalism. His end has come - after this, there will be no job left for him.

Seriously a tale of two quotes, it can go far to tell how good a lair Dr. Abati is. Every man must surely account for every word that comes out of his mouth.
Most especially in this internet age.
Seriously SMH for him.
Thank Linda for digging that up.

Change the Alamieyeseigha in the statement to Abati and here is the honest & factual statement you would get.

"Abati Reuben has shown himself to be a
dishonourable fellow, unfit to talk (rule), unfit to sit
among men and women of honour and integrity, unfit to preach to the people that he counsels (leads) about ideals and values."

A minute silence for the integrity and honour of Dr Reuben Abati the Sophisticated Ignoramous.

I know linda won't post this. *Shior*, Iwo lomo !

This is common now?

In 2005, the cobwebs and dust of Guardian newspapers beclouded his sense of judgment.
Then he was blessed and started working in the Rock. In this Rock, the atmosphere is serene and there is sufficient time to think actions through before committing. In this new vantage point, he sees clearer, and based on this new vision, all Nigerians opposed to the pardon granted Alams are ignorant.

This always happens once a sycophant tastes money. lecturers spend time criticizing Government but are unable to make impact once in office. Lets change the system then people will adapt to the rule of law and keep their nonsense opinions to themselves.

I remember reuben abati on 'patitos gang', and i used to respect him cos he makes a lot of valid points in his analysis, not until I realized that most of d pple that find their way to tv stations for discussions r doing so cos they r looking for political appointments. The whole lot of them "birds of a feather". It is not possible for a honest man to speak onbehalf of a dishonest government.

Reuben could jolly well have been speaking about himself a totally disgusting and dishonourable fellow, unfit to rule, unfit to sit among men and women of honour and integrity, unfit to preach to the people that he leads about ideals and values.

Most of these people parading themselves as saints have done worst things than Alams in their private and public lives. We don't live in a world of Saints or purity only. Every human being deserve a second chance in life. O. Obasanjo got pardoned and he went on to serve Nigeria as a president. Gen. Diya, late Gen. Adisa etc. were all pardoned why is Alams pardon different. Who stole our pension fund,Oil subsidy fund, Allocations to our respective LGAs. Nigerians should grow up to the real issue.

SAMUEL said...

Why are people insulting and abusing President Jonathan for granting pardon to Alamieyeseigha and others? First of all, Alamieyeseigha was governor of Bayelsa state and not the President of Nigeria. He embezzled his State fund not Nigeria's money. If his stateman and boy decides to pardon him how does that concern all these people ranting on this blog? Some people raining these insults here are worst than Alamieyeseigha. Nigerians should learn to respect the office of the President of the Fedral Republic of Nigeria. If I'm him (President), I will Pardon more so that some people will go and hug transformer.

J.W said...

Anon.3:59........it's an honest man,gerrit?
Bonario was right.Before u correct someone,make sure u get ur facts right.
The word "honest" comes from the french word "honnete" and the "h" is silent.Another example is "hour" which comes from the french word "heure".Do you then say "a hour"?
You are welcome.

Anonymous 3.59 pm .... now guess who is the joker? 'a honest man'indeed does that even sound right to you when you say the words? and you call someone a rat!

FYI:Words that begin with a vowel sound, such as "apple", are preceded by "an".

All other words, are preceded by "a".

The rules before "h" are a little tricky, but clear: if a word begins with an "h" sound and the first syllable is stressed (like "hotel"), then it never takes "an". If the first syllable is not stressed (like "honest") then it is possible to use "an".
honest is pronouced 'onest'the 'h' is silent.....

I wonder what Pat Utomi will think of him now when he was shooting down the politicians that behave badly through his column. Someone described him as a byproduct of homosexual acts. I refuse to concur with this despicable descriptions but rather will describe him as the missing link between a serpent and the snake that deceived aunty Eve. You know the paleontologists are still searching for that creature. They need not go further because we have found it in Bro Abati. He is the original 2 faced man.

When this shameless man was posturing on PATITO"S GANG; criticizing and demonizing government and its officials, i knew he was begging for appointment. He was hungry then; chairman of Guardian Editorial board wasn't giving him enough money to live the kind of life he dreamed of, he is a typical Nigerian scumbag; shameless man whose education probably on scholarship is a big, bad investment.
ATTENTION: FREE ADVICE: If you need a government job; borrow some money, run a TV show (you can call it "OTOTO"S GANG); abuse every body in government in the programmes; i bet you government will beg you to work for them.
Bye-bye to unemployment !

Reuben Abati (@Abati1990) is a pathological and trained LIAR --- for his OGA AT THE TOP (Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan --- GCFR, BNER, GCON, CORRUPT, LIAR, CHEAT, KLEPTOCRAT). Reuben Abati is possessed by avoidable DEMONS. Some suspect Reuben Abati is "a product of SAME sex marriage." Reuben Abati deliberately lies to the Nigerian people and to the whole universe on behalf of Nigeria's so called "President", Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan, shameless man who recently referred to that Diepreye Solomon Peter Alamieyeseigha (a criminal and a corrupt and convicted thief) as "my BOSS" -->> "BOSS" of WHAT??? Boss of thieves??? Should Nigeria ever returns to military rule, please, blame Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan, Patience "Lazarus of Bethany" Jonathan, Reuben Abati, Nigerian Senate and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP --- degenerate oil THIEVES) and their families, friends and associates. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan is part of what is wrong with Nigeria NOW. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan and his clique are a CORRUPT brigade and must never be allowed into government again and must not even be allowed to ever run a chicken shed.
