AWAY FROM SERIOUS BUSINESS


Hi people, as you all may have noticed already, its politics, politics and more politics in Nigeria at the moment. Political parties are holding their primaries to determine who will represent them during the presidential polls in April. Yesterday, (January 13th) delegates of the ruling party - PDP - voted President (Dr.) Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as their flag bearer. I'm sure you all have overdosed on the details already.

To take our minds off the PDP comedy primaries, here's a selection of 'political cartoons' (sorry its politics again but hey, they are just cartoons... Enjoy!


1. Jona and friends 
2. 'To hell with the cabal' says Dora Akunyili


3. Did IBB step aside or did he get 'flung aside'?






4. Sanusi catches the lawmakers redhanded


5.Epileptic power supply
6.Yerima marries 13year old




7.The masses suffer while the elites say AYE to enjoyment.



8.Corruption in high places




9.Is Goodluck enough? ... Guess we're yet to find out


10.Consensus express




 11.Corrupt Governors and the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission


 12. In sickness and in health... till God do us part



13.Corrupt Nigerian legislators





14.Octopus PDP grabs its all... RIP Octopus Paul


  
15.Blame it on AbdulMuttalab



16.Like a thief in the night...



17.LDR - Long Distant Regime



18.Politicians on rampage


19.All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others - Napoleon


20. What You See Is What 'We' Get
