THE CHRISTIAN WALK
|Monday, January 7, 2019|
Cameron, Texas, USA
UPDATED Tuesday, April 20, 2021: Published here in this column Monday January 7, 2019. I prophesied in this column seven years ago that then Presidential Candidate of the APC, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari would win the 2015 Presidential Election. I disclosed that, if he did certain things, he-Buhari-would serve two terms as president. But four years in office, I warned that Buhari had exhausted his time and frittered away the opportunity to reimagine Nigeria. I warned that his second term would be hellish and calamitous for the nation. Read this for prosperity's sake.
ellow Nigerians, I am opportune once again to address you in my open letter to all my country men and women all over the world, as I did exactly four years ago in our arduous march to greatness. As a people, we have endured and gone through a lot as a nation in our search for good, responsible and responsive leadership. There is nothing inherently wrong with our stars, the True Lord God Almighty hasn't created us Nigerians differently; we have all it takes to be one of the most prosperous and highly developed nations, not only in the Black World; but as a matter of fact, in the entire global system. We are blessed with bountiful Nature which makes other nations green at us; Nigerians are hardworking, innovative and entrepreneurial as evinced by the monumental breakthroughs we achieve outside the shores of our nation. Africa's late bard; the inimitable Chinua Achebe summed up the fundamental ailment afflicting us as a people: "The problem with Nigeria is squarely that of leadership." And Achebe was indeed on target.
Our founding fathers worked at cross-purposes, even though they identified colonialism as the major enemy, they did not work for a future United Nigeria; rather, they were cocooned and teetered to their regional interests. Nigeria was hatched out on tripod orbits with diverse culture and variegated tradition and creed; which, like other nations with similar diversities should have been our strengths. But unfortunately, these mores became our undoing and bereft of able, nationalistically-committed and patriotically-motivated leadership; have exacerbated our centrifugal forces as a people. It is this elusive quest for leadership that led us into two democratic falls, aftermath of our nation's postpartum depression following the birth of Nigeria and further ushered us into a brutal existential kerfuffle and nearly three agonizing decades of military dictatorship.
OUR TORTUOUS PATH TO REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT: 1999-2019
Following the woeful mismanagement of our political independence by Nigerian politicians, the Nigerian Armed Forces were compelled to seize the reins of power in half a decade of attaining nationhood from our British colonizers. Besides a brief spell of representative government between 1979 and 1983, the Nigerian military held sway over the affairs of the nation until our self-inflicted identity crisis reached a boiling head in 1998 under the murderous Abacha reign when what had never happened in our nation's history occurred; the death of a military dictator by Providence, which sent a strong and powerful message to the soldiers that; "The Sovereign Lord God Almighty is King of kings and has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all"(Psalm 103:19). Before the True Lord God Almighty intervened in the affairs of the Nigerian nation and removed Sani Abacha in summer 1998, He showed some of us His True Prophets Whom He has called in truth and indeed; just as He disclosed in Amos 3:7. "Surely, the Lord does nothing without revealing His plans to His servants the prophets." Without firing a single shot; Abacha was removed, the debilitating June 12, 1993 political logjam was providentially resolved and here we are as nation today basking in the whiff of 20 years of uninterrupted representative government. Although still in fits and starts with its attendant imperfections, this democratic experiment has afforded Nigerians the opportunity to throw out non-performing actors in quadrennial voting exercise. Consequently, we have changed our political actors peacefully on four occasions since we collectively threw out the Nigerian military two decades ago namely: 1999, 2007, 2011 and 2015. In four of those five occasions, one man has featured prominently: Retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, a man who violently engineered the overthrow of a democratically-elected government in 1983 and was himself kicked out by his colleagues twenty months later in 1985.
THE FUTURE OF OUR DEMOCRACY AND WHY MUHAMMDU BUHARI MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO CRASH IT ON SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16, 2019:
Having sought the highest position in the land for 12 agonizing years, Retired Muhammadu Buhari wept openly in his last public appearance that age was not on his side anymore. He lamented that, if given the last opportunity to govern Nigeria, he would only stay in office for just four years laying a solid foundation for the nation while grooming a younger, more nimble and agile vice-president for the mantle of office as the iconic Nelson Mandela did by grooming Thabo Mbeki as his successor in a post-racial South Africa. Here were Mr. Buhari's words/vows: "I'm not getting younger. If I succeed I'll do one term. I wish I became Head of State when I was a governor, just a few years as a young man. Now at 72, there is a limit to what I can do." Buhari made the one-term promise in an interview conducted by Mr. Theophilus Abbah of Sunday Trust newspaper and published on February 6, 2011 where he stated he won't seek re-election. Buhari was 72 years old in 2011 when he made this promise not to seek second term, because of his old age and he is 80 years today, but as mendacious as he is, he has not denied making this statement, but he has also falsified his official age; two grave sins decried by the True Lord God Almighty and punishable under the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
*Buhari was 72 years old in 2011 when he made this promise not to seek second term, because of his old age and he is 80 years today, but as mendacious as he is, he has not denied making this statement, but he has also falsified his official age; two grave sins decried by the True Lord God Almighty and one punishable under the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
*Mr. Muhammadu Buhari is a liar, manipulator and a dishonorable retired military general and an untrustworthy politician who would say anything to remain in office.
*Two of Nigeria's respected newspapers reported widely Mr. Buhari's interview not to seek re-election in 2011 at the age of 72. Today he is 80 years old officially, because not only has Mr. Buhari lied to Nigerians on his promise not to seek re-election on account of his health and old age; this man often praised for his honorable personality is not only a liar, but a dishonorable retired soldier who should be tried and prosecuted for falsifying his age to remain in office which is a crime according to the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
One of the reasons the progressive movement in Nigeria and most especially in the South Western part of Nigeria rose up in unison against the lackluster performance of President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan in 2015 was his promise earlier made during the 2011 presidential election to serve for one-term only and not to seek re-election after the unfortunate death of President Umaru Yar┴dua. This author/writer was one of the arrow heads who insisted that Mr. Jonathan must be made to stand by his words and not get away with it. Argosies of demonstrations engulfed the land in this regard. My open letter to then President Jonathan at the cusp of that election published in this column on Thursday December 18, 2014 as the link below shows bears this out:-
Now, it would be the highest form of hypocrisy and monumental trickery for the same Nigerians, especially in the South West of Nigeria to insist that President Jonathan should be held to his promise and vow not to seek re-election in 2015 and that, in concert with other fundamental reasons led to Jonathan's defeat only for us to let Buhari get away with his promise not to seek re-election in 2019. If on this premise alone, the nervous system of Nigerians, indeed any true thorough-bred Yoruba person in the South West of Nigeria will be tormented for ever for voting for Retired General Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday February 16, 2019. According to the Word of Life: "For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes" (Deuteronomy 10:17).
Many have opined that Buhari is a man of honor and an incorruptible person. That is a fašade. The greatest canard for the marines! The man who doesn't steal, but provides covers for thieves is as guilty as the thieving politicians. Retired General Muhammadu Buhari is the most nepotistic leader and president Nigeria has ever had. He exhibited such closed mindedness and provincial personality between 1984 and 1985 when he seized power as military head of state. Because of political awareness and growth, these downsides of the man was overlooked in 2015 with the assumption that with age, time and experience, Buhari would have jettisoned such behavior, even though such world views led to his overthrow as military autocrat by Gen. Ibrahim Babangida. But the leopard hardly changes its dark spots. Buhari's prebendal outlook writs large as an elected civilian president and see all his appointments in 20th Century Nigeria.
Not only has the presidency effectively been outsourced in the last four years; the president is almost going senile; Imagine the president doesn't even know how to pronounce properly the name of his vice president. The president once referred to the National War College in the United States as National War College, UK. Buhari has become the perfect carpet beggar of Nigeria's thieving politicians to continue the pilfering of our commonwealth while feeding the rest of Nigerians with gobbledygook and puerile war on corruption. It is all a ruse; these guys don't care about the downtrodden Nigerian masses. Are Atiku Abubakar and the PDP credible alternatives? No, but at least they don't tell us lies; pull wool over our eyes, take us for a ride and we know what to expect from them in four years. If our fears and concerns are confirmed in four years, the beauty of our democratic struggle in two decades is the opportunity to throw them out and look for alternatives in 2023. That is the power of voting; the potent power of democracy. How can we be sure that Atiku Abubakar and his gang will perform and run Nigeria better than the current mendacious Buhari gang and his Arrogant, Proud and Careless-APC-party? By doing what we did in 2015: we voted out Jonathan and the PDP and ushered in Buhari and the APC. Now that Buhari and his APC have messed up the nation, we have the opportunity to try Atiku Abubakar who has continuously vehemently sought this position for fifteen years just as Buhari did and we gave Buhari a chance four years ago. We will be able to measure Atiku Abubakar and Peer Obi in four year's time and throw them out, if in our estimation, they are not better than Buhari and his deceptive cohort. Buhari is a total and miserable failure. It is time Nigerians retire this retired military general back to his home in Daura, Katsina State.
The level of poverty, misery, aimlessness and corruption ordinary Nigerians have experienced in the last four years under Muhammadu Buhari are horrendous. I may not reside in Nigeria, but I visit Nigeria at least three times a year in the last four years. I buy groceries in Nigeria, pay for my accommodation and interact with fellow Nigerians. People are complaining, wringing their hands that never in the history of our benighted nation have we ever had it so bad! If you are a Nigerian and your life is far better in the last four years, vote for Buhari. If in the last four years, you can afford yourself three square meals a day, Buhari is your man. If you are able to feed your family comfortably and satisfactorily in the last four years in Buhari's Nigeria, cast your vote for him next month. If you have relatives, children, kin, friends and acquaintances outside Nigeria who have sent foreign currency to you before Buhari became president and in the last four years, you have seen appreciable increase in the value of the foreign currency; Buhari is your man. If you can afford to pay the school fees of your children in the last four years under the Buhari Administration, cast your vote for Buhari without batting an eyelid. If you like the way our road networks have improved in the last four years as the media propagandists of the Buhari Administration want the world to believe, cast your vote for this man in next month's presidential election. If the water supply in your area is now running and the electricity supply to your area of town has markedly improved in the last four years-not in the last few weeks when elections are around the corner to fool you-definitely Mr. Buhari is your man on Saturday February 16, 2019. If you have a son/daughter or ward in any tertiary institution in Nigeria and you admire the way their teachers and professors are in love with their job and the industrial harmony prevailing in those institutions, please do not hesitate to cast your vote for Mr. Buhari. If you haven't encountered any of your friends, relatives, and neighbors who hasn't been unemployed in the last four years, please ensure Buhari returns for another four years of employment opportunities and job creation in Nigeria. If your son/daughter or ward has just finished his/her mandatory NYSC assignment and he/she is now gainfully employed, like Mr. Buhari's daughter who in her 20s is already on the board of the NNPC thanks to her Daddy who is the substantive Minister of Petroleum Resources in the last four years, Mr. Buhari is definitely your choice on Saturday February 16, 2019.
If you have a relative or neighbor who fell victim to the menace of Fulani herdsmen in any part of Nigeria, vote for the Next Level of pogrom under Mr. Buhari. If you have been harassed or intimidated, arrested, jailed or have witnessed the cold-blooded murder and massacre of religious faithful in Abuja, Kaduna and other parts of Nigeria, because of their faith, Buhari is your man! If you like the militarized state currently pervading Nigeria under a so-called an elected government where citizens are being harassed by law enforcement agents and the agents of state, taking cues from their Commander-in-Chief that disobey court orders, take this nation to the Next Level of lawlessness and impunity with Mr. Buhari. If you like the discombobulated security in Nigeria right now under Mr. Buhari, vote him for a second term come Saturday February 16, 2019. If you admire the way and manner Nigeria is being laughed and scoffed at on television and social media and our president has become butt of jokes by comedians all over the world and on social media, let's take the national outrage and disgrace to the Next Level for another four years under Mr. Buhari. If you are delighted by the way and manner all those who have pilfered state funds and should be in jail right now have been absorbed into the APC and President Buhari looks the other way, yet we are fighting corruption, take Nigeria to the Next Level of manafiki on Saturday February 16, 2019.
If Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola said a serious government would solve Nigeria's discombobulated electricity supply in six months of coming to power and the man is now denying what he said, because he is a minister and you believe his denial, vote for Buhari and the APC for a second term. If Mr. Buhari and the APC promised to restructure Nigeria while they were soliciting for your votes in 2015 and later disclaim such open declaration and you believe their lie, Buhari is your man for re-election. If you believe Buhari's barefaced lie that he would end the menace of Boko Haram in three months of his presidency and has failed, vote for this liar on Saturday February 16, 2019. If you want to be taken for a simple, and compound fool for another four years after Buhari and his gang said oil subsidy was a scam, and they promised to cut the cost of petrol but instead have increased the pump price more than what the Jonathan Administration handed them in 2015; yes, vote for Buhari and the APC and become a complicated fool for another four hellish years.
It galls the minds of those of us who fought the military brigands that ruined Nigeria for ten agonizing years under Babangida and Abacha seeing all our efforts wasted by another buccaneering retired military buffoon trampling our human rights underfoot in the New Millennium. The Buhari Administration has arrested more law-abiding citizens in our fledgling democracy than all elected administrations since 1999.
Here now is the conclusion of the matter; if you are a Nigerian and you can confidently and audaciously state that your economic well being, your life and the lives of your family and loved ones are better today than four years ago under Nigeria's Muhammadu Buhari and the APC at the helms of affairs at the national level, go out and vote for the re-election of Retired General Muhammadu Buhari as president and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria on Saturday February 16, 2019 for another agonizing, hellish, brutish and nightmarish four years of Next Level of Poverty, Squalor and Misery. Here is an alternative; we have tried Retired Gen. Muhammad Buhari for four years; we have seen all he has got; he cannot do anything differently as witnessed in the last four years. We have not tried Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, but we have tried the PDP. There is no guarantee that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will perform better than Buhari, but there are guarantees that Buhari cannot perform well than what we have seen in the last four years. Just as Buhari begged, pleaded and wept to be given this job three times and we obliged him in 2015, so also Atiku Abubakar has cried, pleaded and wept thrice to be tried for this job. Let's oblige him as we did for Buhari in 2015. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar may prove us wrong that he cannot perform better, for he may turn out to be a better chief executive than the current dour occupant at Aso Rock. To gamble on Muhammadu Buhari for another four years is to consign our nation to economic servitude against the backdrop of his monumental failure in this quadrennial democratic experiment. A gamble on Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on the other hand, for fresh first term of four years has more incentives of voting him out as we should do to Buhari this year than re-electing Failure. It is time for Buhari to go.
HOW TO REMOVE RETIRED MUHAMMADU BUHARI SPIRITUALLY AS PRESIDENT ON SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16, 2019 : JOIN NIDABA NOW!
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.--" 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn"---Proverbs 29:2
It was the most tragic, giddy and hellish period in our nation's history. A free, fair and credible presidential election had just been held and a clear-cut winner had emerged. Then the killers of Hope struck; a phalanx of military thugs and brigands kyboshed the aspirations of millions of Nigerians and put Nigeria on lingering reverse motion. As awe stalked the land and many lily-levered souls ran away, few courageous patriots among us stayed behind. We resolved this injustice would not stand. The Brigand-in-Chief who perpetrated the injustice was the first to go. His lickspittle toady, a schizoid soon took over and put the nation on farther multiple reverses. For half a decade, the nation was on the edge. We didn't know how to get rid of this human wraith until the True Lord God Almighty spoke to me on that evergreen day of Friday February 21, 1997. I will never, ever forget that day in my life. The Sovereign Lord God Almighty, The One Who created the heavens and the earth, The One Who created all souls and gives breath to all living beings; the Jehovah Lord God Almighty is His Name; and He told me inside the cavernous dingy bowel of Nigeria's Gulag called the Directorate of Military Intelligence-DMI-Apapa Lagos Nigeria what to do so, "That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun That there is no one besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other... and Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes"-- (Isaiah 45:6, Daniel 4:25). My Lord and Creator Jesus Christ now instructed me on what, when and how to use His Book, the Book of Life, the Holy Bible to effect a transformational change in the leadership of Nigeria. Within 14 months, Sani Abacha was gone and the national psychosis was over. This was the genesis of Nigeria's current democracy which is 20years old this year.
Fast forward to 2015 when the national ship of the Nigerian State was rudderless and despair stalked the land; once again, the Sovereign Lord God Almighty told us to get involved. President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan was gone. The Lord God Almighty through the Holy Spirit instructed us as He did eighteen years earlier to support Retired Gen. Muhammad Buhari as president. As we disclosed here in 2015, Buhari would have governed Nigeria for eight years, but he derailed as the Lord Jesus Christ informed us: "You -Muhammad Buhari-have acted foolishly," Samuel -the Holy Spirit-declared. "You have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you; if you had, the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel-Nigeria- But now your kingdom will not endure; the LORD has sought out a man after his own heart and appointed him ruler of his people, because you have not kept the LORD's command"--(I Samuel 13:13-14). Consequently, Retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari will not return for a second and final term as president in the presidential election of Saturday February 16, 2019.
