#SoriyanChats – 15th January 2015

#SoriyanChats is a twitter forum where I, Olakunle Soriyan, discuss with my ‘tweeps’ on select local and global issues affecting us. People get to ask me questions or make comments and I respond accordingly.

This segment on the blog is a deliberate effort to capture the chats in a single view and make available for referencing and recheck especially for those who missed it.


Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: We are LIVE!! Join the transformation using the hash tag #SoriyanChats. We shall be discussing the upcoming presidential elections…

Youngichu ‏@youngichu: @olakunlesoriyan Awesome discussion for today #SoriyanChats

Adedola Adekolu-John @dedols: @olakunlesoriyan, do you see the forthcoming election causing a religious divide in Nigeria? We have seemingly 2 parties suggesting 2 divides

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @dedols This election is actually coming late for that. RELIGIOUS DIVIDE is already over 30yrs old in its hold on our politics #SoriyanChats


SAM ORE ‏@TheSamOre: @olakunlesoriyan who is your prefer presidential candidate and state reasons sir!

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan:  @TheSamOre Honestly, my MIND is SEARCHING & totally UNMADE. I am still WAITING for the CANDIDATES to DISCUSS the “HOWs”. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: The PRESIDENTIAL RACE is on…and BIG TALKS from both PDP & APC CAMP. But NONE is discussing the “HOW” to the PROMISES #SoriyanChats

Victor Oyefeso ‏@Victoroyefeso: @olakunlesoriyan I think they are, sir except they are not telling us in details. Specifically, the APC Vice Presidential candidate.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso My IGNORANCE is OPEN to EMANCIPATION. Whether from PDP/APC, I am SINCERELY UNAWARE of the “HOW” CONVERSATIONS #SoriyanChats

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: @TheSamOre #soriyanchats whether GEJ or GMB we should vote with conscience and a metamorphosis not tribe and sentiments

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: #SoriyanChats i think more young people need to be sensitised on the importance of exercising your franchise we can’t just sit back, time to act.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @pamabueenamhe True. &this MUST be the RESOLVE of all NIGERIANS. Yet, “DOING SOMETHING” must be GREETED with GREAT CAUTION #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @pamabueenamhe Well…as a PRECURSOR or at worst, SIDE by SIDE that, should be the EDUCATION about the SCIENCE to “CHOICES” #SoriyanChats

SAM ORE ‏@TheSamOre: @olakunlesoriyan previous event and records should be the line of your DECISION sir..30days to go you are yet to decide?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre Should I buy a shoe simply bicos I have money, even when the seller cannot present choices that make sense to me? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre I demand that sellers should explain “HOW” the product can deliver the PROMISED VALUE..or I will pocket my money #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre So bicos I have worked in great hospitals b4 & did well, U’ll let me defend u in court without the “HOW” to it? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre CREDILITY is a JOURNEY. If you win the WORLD CUP in 2014, u have to return 4yrs after to “PROVE” u can do it again #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre No PROMISE made for VOTES should IGNORE the VOTERS RIGHT to KNOW the “HOW” to and even the “WHY” of the PROMISE #SoriyanChats

SAM ORE ‏@TheSamOre: @olakunlesoriyan the How should not be the determinate value if your vote apparently explanation is never ENOUGH but previous Actions

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre You overrate VOTING as the PATHWAY to our TRANSFORMATION. By another AWARENESS…it is NOT NECCESSARILY a PATHWAY #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre As RESPECT to the VOTERS, explaining the HOW to every PROMISE is actually SERVICE and JUSTICE to ALL. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @TheSamOre NO CANDIDATE, whether PDP/APC, should actually allow ANY VOTER DEMAND for the “HOWs”. It should be the CAMPAIGN #SoriyanChats

IAmGbengaDaniel ‏@1SpiritWithHim: @olakunlesoriyan: Politicians must show apt understanding in communicating SOUND POLICIES plus STRATEGIC IMPLEMENTATION PLAN. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @1SpiritWithHim Perfect thoughts!!! #SoriyanChats

Victor Oyefeso ‏@Victoroyefeso: @olakunlesoriyan We may not likely get to hear ‘How’s’ but btw GEJ and GMB, can u tell me who you advise me to vote for, sir?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso I will NOT give advice that’s NOT clear within me as a RESOLVE. I AUDIT before I COMMIT…or I will COMMIT NOT #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso I don’t know how to use my PURCHASING POWER to BUY what i don’t understand. I’ll rather NOT BUY.. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso Even if it is one second to election,I’ll ONLY VOTE what i UNDERSTAND. We NEED the HOWs! VOTING is NOT TERROR #SoriyanChats

Victor Oyefeso ‏@Victoroyefeso: @olakunlesoriyan “For every Olakunle Soriyan there is equal or great than 1million fools in Nig.” Those 2 ‘really’ can’t say the ‘HOWs’!

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso I actually don’t need that praise sir. Not about me. The issue is about a demand for the “HOW” on every PROMISE  #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso &this INSULT of CHOICE based on PROMISES without the HOWs has gone on for DECADES UNCHALLENGED. It’s now TIME #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Victoroyefeso I consider it an INSULT for ANYONE to EXPECT ANY NIGERIAN to make a CHOICE based on ZERO-TALK on the “HOWs” #SoriyanChats

Raphael Chukwu ‏@ralphchuksng: @olakunlesoriyan The “HOW” has never been addressed in Nigerian politics.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @ralphchuksng Sound Point!! And this is where the conversation should be. VOTING is NOT the AUTHOR of PEACE. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @ralphchuksng CANDIDATES on ALL FRONTS must LEAD the CONVERSATIONS about the “HOWs” if there is SERIOUS INTEREST in my VOTE #SoriyanChats

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: #SoriyanChats True we also need to be careful not to get ourselves mackled in any Corrupt practices pray for Nigeria

Babalola Emmanuel ‏@PtsAbe: @olakunlesoriyan true yan mentor.#SoriyanChats


Babalola Emmanuel ‏@PtsAbe: @olakunlesoriyan sir, the truth is none of d candidate is worthy of my vote since the choice is between bad and worse or worse and worst

Youngichu ‏@youngichu: @PtsAbe @olakunlesoriyan that is the point. In between the devil and the deep red sea. What shall we do and what can be done?

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: #SoriyanChats I am paraniod right now the way things are going made Gods peace be upon Nigeria

Pam zake ‏@pamabueenamhe: #SoriyanChats The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing Edward Burke. This is the Nigeria situation


Esohe Osinoiki ‏@airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan Hello sir. What should we bear in mind when choosing the proper candidate for this election? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: Our FOCUS in this ELECTION should NOT just be about who can FIX the ECONOMY…but about who can KEEP the NATION TOGETHER #SoriyanChats

Esohe Osinoiki ‏@airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan Sir do you think a nation ‘togeda’ where many of d ppl are being killed and d leader can’t defend them is actually togeda?

Esohe Osinoiki ‏@airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan I think our problem goes way beyond someone who can keep us togeda. We need to atleast be safe before we talk of togedaness

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair I understand your anxiety and i fully empathise. But the RESOLVE to be TOGETHER will address our SAFETY #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair To be together is CRITICAL or VOTING is WASTE. VOTE is a SEED & NIGERIA must EXIST 4 our vote to have a HARVEST. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: For SOCIETY, the DECISION & RESOLVE to STAY TOGETHER against all odds is as IMPORTANT as COMMITMENT to (cont) http://tl.gd/n_1sk0u5k

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: See…CHANGE is a SCIENCE…not a WISH! CHANGE is METHODICAL. The “HOWs” of the PROMISES are as CRITICAL as the CHANGE #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: CHANGE AGENTS EVERYWHERE must DEMAND that the “HOWs”&”WHYs” should come with EACH PROMISE on the MANIFESTO. It is ONLY NOBLE. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: Thank you all for JOINING the hashtag #SoriyanChats. Meet you on the NEXT ONE. GOD BLESS our GREAT NATION. NIGERIA will WIN #SoriyanChats
