Don’t cry for Bola Tinubu

The article reproduced here was written in 2015. It predicted the comeuppance of Bola Tinubu in the APC. I have decided to re-submit it for publication because what was obvious to so many of us on the sidelines what oblivious to Bola Tinubu. We always knew it was a matter of time before he was used and dumped by his [...]

Judicial coup d’etat in Nigeria

We just went through the worst presidential election in Nigeria’s history. To add insult to injury, we have now been assaulted with the worst judicial verdict in the history of Nigeria. The presidential election petitions tribunal (PEPT) delivered a judgment on Atiku’s petition against INEC’s declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the February 2019 presidential election, and [...]

The courts must nullify president Buhari’s election on grounds of perjury

There can be no doubt that we are living today in Nigeria in proverbially “interesting times.”  We have just gone through the worst presidential election in the history of Nigeria, marred by massive fraud, vote inflation and deflation, ballot-snatching, riots and voter intimidation and suppression. Atiku Abubakar, one of the main contestants in the election, has painstakingly presented a water-tight case [...]

    Cows are now more important than human beings in Nigeria

Cows are now more important than human beings in Nigeria

In the bible, Jesus cast a legion of demons out of a demon-possessed man.  However, he cast the demons into 2,000 pigs nearby.  Immediately, the pigs ran over a cliff, fell into the sea and drowned.  When the villagers heard about this miracle, they were not pleased.  How could 2,000 pigs be destroyed just in order for one “useless” man [...]

    APC: Corruption incorporated

APC: Corruption incorporated

APC is a party that claims to be anti-corruption.  However, the evidence is now overwhelming that this claim is one big scam.  An anti-corruption party cannot, at the same time, be a party that provides refuge for those accused of corruption.  How is this for an anti-corruption slogan: APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole says: “Once you have joined APC all your [...]

Mr. President is not qualified to be president of Nigeria

Anywhere else, it would be an open and shut case that President Buhari is not qualified to be president of Nigeria.  Nevertheless, he has been president for the past 4 years.  The question that remains is this: will he continue to get away with violating the law?  Or has he finally met his Waterloo? The case against Buhari being president is [...]

    Don’t you already regret voting for Buhari?

Don’t you already regret voting for Buhari?

Every right-thinking Nigerian knows Buhari did not win the 2019 presidential election.  Nevertheless, at the very least, some 10 million Nigerians must have voted genuinely for him.  In view of the extent to which the situation in Nigeria has deteriorated dramatically over the few months since the election, we need to ask the president’s supporters if they don’t now regret [...]

Who speaks for the Yoruba in the killing fields of Nigeria today? (2)

President Buhari cares for his people. But although he is president of Nigeria, his people are not the people of Nigeria. His people are the Fulanis in particular, and Northern Nigerians in general. That is the token of a “good politician.” A good politician promotes the interests of his people. But what happens to members of the president’s party who are [...]

Who speaks for the Yorubas in the killing fields of Nigeria today? (1)

President Buhari is a Northerner. He sees Nigeria essentially from a Northern perspective. Even El-Rufai, one of his more ardent supporters, admitted in the past that: “(Buhari's) insensitivity to Nigeria's diversity and his parochial focus are already well-known.” Buhari favours the North in everything. According to Jim Yong Kim, the president of the World Bank, Buhari required that the bank’s development [...]

    Nigeria’s gradual return to dictatorship

Nigeria’s gradual return to dictatorship

Nigerians are not students of history. History, in Nigeria, is so contentious, it is not even taught in our schools. However, we educate our future through the study of history. A country without a history is one without a compass. It is a country without a plan. The future of a country begins in its history. Defenders and supporters of President [...]

    No Yoruba president in Nigeria for another 20 years

No Yoruba president in Nigeria for another 20 years

If Nigeria were to survive the ticking time bomb of the rigged 2019 presidential election, one of the prerequisites would be that there cannot be a Yoruba president in the country for at least another 20 years. Otherwise, we would be further stoking the flames of disintegration. The Yoruba have provided the president in 8 of the last 20 years. [...]

    The courts must declare Atiku Abubakar president of Nigeria (II)

The courts must declare Atiku Abubakar president of Nigeria (II)

When the APC discovered that Atiku had the authentic votes of the 2019 presidential election, retrieved from the INEC back server, the party went into panic mode.  Their first reaction was to demand that Atiku be prosecuted for hacking into the INEC computer.  But this position was self-defeating.  If indeed Atiku was guilty of this infraction, that would, in effect, [...]

The courts must declare Atiku Abubakar president of Nigeria (I)

In January, 2019, President Obasanjo burst again on the political scene in Nigeria with a16-page broadside which he entitled: “Points for Concern and Action.”  In this, he alleged that the upcoming 2019 presidential election was already shaping out to be nothing more than a self-succession project for President Buhari: “They have started recruiting collation officers who are already awarding results [...]
