Abubakar gave the statement during a chat with the number one bestselling author and former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri. The chat was revealed in a tweet by Pastor Omokri.
According to Atiku, only through job creation can his government be adjudged as haven done its job. He said, if they failed to create jobs, then they would have failed at doing their jobs. According to him, “Reno, we must create jobs. Joblessness is a disease and the symptoms are crime and terrorism. The best way to fight the outcomes is by curing the disease. If we do not create jobs, then we have failed at doing our jobs.”
Meanwhile, Pastor Omokri has urged the All Progressives Congress, APC, party to list the jobs that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government has created since inception of office.
Pastor Omokri who listed the Jobs the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, created to include,”from just American University of Nigeria, Faro, Rica Gardo & Standard Microfinance. Atiku created 50k jobs, to mention a few” however challenged the APC to, “list Buhari’s jobs!”
According to him, “ @OfficialAPCNg is silly to say @Atiku must list jobs he created. Their focus should be jobs @MBuhari created. Let me humor them. From just American University of Nigeria, Faro, Rica Gardo & Standard Microfinance. Atiku created 50k jobs, to mention a few. APC, list Buhari’s jobs!”
“Cluelessness is when President @MBuhari accuses past administrations of not building infrastructure only for his finance minister to announce the next day that govt is so broke that they are selling national assets built by past governments to fund their 2019 budget #RenosDarts .”
Also taking a swipe at Buhari for criticising the past government of Jonathan, Pastor Omokri tweeted, “ @MBuhari is an ingrate for saying Jonathan did nothing for infrastructure. Who built the only federal university in Buhari’s state? Who built the $1.4 billion Abuja-Kaduna railway? Who revived the railways? Who built the Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria (TRACON)? #RenosDarts .” Related

Fun fact: a lot of russians used to speak french in the 18th century. The “nobility” thought it elevated them above the “common” folk. 27 points Bored Fox 14 hours ago
French was also used in many other countries when people were discussing with the foreign visitors like diplomats. Later the ‘international language’ was changed to English. 18 points Load More Replies… GiantSpaceTiger 4 hours ago
Yep, hence the phrase “Lingua Franca”! (‘Frankish tongue’ tongue meaning language and Frankish meaning ‘of the Franks’, who kindasorta are now the French) Which, amusingly, is still referred to as such even though it’s usually a form of English, now. 0 points Aunt Messy 14 hours ago
All the way to WWI, French was the language of international diplomacy and business in the entire Western World. The Founding Fathers were fluent. 5 points Whatevers not taken 2 hours ago
That’s not true. Learn your history. Founding fathers were NOT fluent in French or any other language. FYI English is the answer since half the world was ruled by the British during that time frame. Also why the Australian flag has a British flag in the top left corner and why Canada is still kinda ruled by the Queen under the prime minister. 0 points

DC’s Joker Movie Could Ruin The MCU | ScreenRant

advertising The upcoming Joker film could, if successful, hurt the MCU’s influence on the film industry. The Todd Phillips directed film about the origin of the classic DC villain goes against just about every move the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made in becoming the juggernaut that it is. And if things work out with the thriller, it could further alter the landscape of comic book movies in Hollywood.
The one principle that Marvel Studios have best utilized in cultivating their franchise is the idea that everything is connected . Nothing happens in a bubble in the MCU, and nothing is made without a game-plan in place. Despite some minor road-bumps, this consistency has worked tenfold for the studio, allowing them to essentially revolutionize Hollywood franchising, take long-form filmic storytelling to unforeseen territory and make a lot of money from a lot of satisfied film-goers in the process.

But the ubiquity that Marvel lives by is also what holds them back creatively. Marvel universe films all follow a standard regime in terms of colour, tone and feel. Their stories are feelgood, their humor quippy and their stakes dramatic but easy to understand, and rarely are our heroes seen to be truly defeated. There’s some very obvious guidelines in place, and while this rigidity protects them from ever producing a Fantastic Four or an X-Men Origins: Wolverine , it also stops them from ever creating a Logan or a Deadpool . Or a Joker .
advertising
For all the problems with Fox’s handling of the X-Men license – and there’s a lot to be said about their mishaps – they’ve unarguably produced some of the most interesting feature films to come from the whole comic book movie boom. Logan and the two Deadpool s have a lot going on in terms of subverting and poking at the audience’s expectations for how these stories are being told on the big screen. And the widespread response was no doubt bolstered by how refreshing these pictures were against the Marvel deluge.
Indeed, one of the biggest concerns about Disney acquiring 20th Century Fox is that we won’t get another Logan under the Marvel banner, because Marvel don’t need to do something that outlandish to make people see their films. They know how safe their brand is, and until now Warner Bros. has been chasing that security by trying to do what Marvel have done – make a universe with two-or-more releases per year and a big team-up along the way. Even Sony, with their Spider-Man villain universe , got ahead of themselves very early with several projects in the pipeline before Venom came out.
advertising All except Marvel have, in one way or another, failed to build something like the MCU that has such a beloved fanbase. With Joker , DC and Warner Bros. are essentially deciding to go the opposite direction and see what happens. Though the picture is expected to help launch a non-DCEU movie brand , it has zero ties to any other franchise, with very little relationship to any established canon. There isn’t even talk of star Joaquin Pheonix having a multi-picture deal or of it leading to a unique take on Batman. Joker is just a movie based on a beloved comic book character. And, so far, it looks good.

Not just good by comic book movie or blockbuster standards, but genuinely good. The rest of the cast is incredible, including Robert DeNiro and Frances Conroy, and bar some controversy surrounding treatment of extras , none of the set photos or reports have shown anything out of the ordinary. It looks like a functional crime film, and that’s the interesting part, because if this is a hit, it’ll tell the industry that nobody needs to follow the Marvel path to find success, and it’ll tell the audience that Marvel’s approach is leaving great stories on the table.
advertising Joker wouldn’t happen in the MCU because everything has to serve a purpose. Nothing is on its own, and that means that we won’t get to see weird spins on iconic roles, or left-field narratives that take an idea and explore it for one movie without an eye towards effecting a half-dozen others. “ It’s all connected ” is the sword Marvel have protected themselves by, and with Joker it might also be the sword the franchise dies by, too.
