"Now the heart of the king of Aram was enraged over this thing; and he called his servants and said to them, "Will you tell me which of us is for the king of Israel?" "None of us, my lord the king," said one of his officers, "but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom"---2 Kings 16: 11-12
his is not a glib talk or revelation when it matters about the life of a sitting president. This is serious. It has nothing to do with playing to the gallery. When the Holy Spirit speaks or reveals something, we say it as commanded. The killers of Hope in 1993 in Nigeria have regrouped; they are after Change in 2015. The Anti-Change Coalition of Nigerians in 2015 have different reasons for coming together, but has one mission: pull a brake to a forward movement Nigeria under a patriotic man. President Buhari must not be allowed to sanitize Nigeria; he must be stopped at all costs, even if it involves physical elimination. Patriotic Nigerians and brave citizens must rise up this time around and ensure Nigeria thrives and we have a nation to bequeath to our generations yet unborn. Nigeria has been afflicted with diminished expectations numerous times for those of us old enough to witness the landmark events that abetted our development. Since the British colonizers departed our shores and ceded the stage for the natives to govern themselves, we have proved to be our own worst enemies in our resolve to free Nigeria from her state of debilitating chaos and arrested development. Each time a man or woman desirous of changing Nigeria's course of history for the better arrives on the scene to do honest job, the few parasitic cliques that thrives on Nigeria's messy state displays its selfish fib and abort Change. This time we should stop them and chase them out of Nigeria. In the 1960s shortly after the nation's fratricidal slugfest which accounted for the death of more than 1 million lives, General Yakubu Gowon promised Three R's namely: Reconciliation, Reconstruction and Rehabilitation. He commenced the three R's and promised a return to civil rule. By 1975, the general reneged on his promise and dithered on several post-civil war policies. National ennui set in and Nigerians needed a change badly and earnestly. The nation's top military high command effected a change and shoved Gen. Gowon aside during his official state visit to Kampala, Uganda for the annual OAU Summit (now AU Summit) on July 29, 1975. The general went on self-exile in the UK thereafter and a no-nonsense military general replaced him.
The military regime of General Murtala Ramat Muhammad between July 30, 1975 and February 13, 1976 changed the face of Nigeria forever. A straight-jacketed military general sure-footed of his mission and patriotic focus soon ran into brick walls from the lecherous elites and the pot-boilers of Nigeria's decadent and backward status quo. Gen Muhammad took them up and started to shake things up but he only lasted six months. Earlier before he took over in a coup, the United States of America was in energy crisis. Gen Gowon was more or less a lackey of the West and Nigeria's oil was being touted in Washington as counter poise to the energy monopolists of the Middle East. Secretary Henry Kissinger was billed to pay a visit to Nigeria in 1974 to ensure that the oil spigots flowed and there won't be a repeat of the 1973 energy crisis in the West the previous year. But as Kissinger prepared to leave for a state visit to Nigeria, a coup took place and Muhammad became the new helmsman. Gen. Murtala Muhammad told the United States Ambassador in Nigeria, Mr. Donald Easum who was appointed by President Richard Nixon that he-Muhammad- was not ready to welcome Dr. Kissinger on a state visit to Nigeria. Washington was enraged. As Gen. Muhammad asserted his authority and began charting an independent voice for Nigeria, the Central Intelligence Agency-CIA- had him on their radar as a patriotic Nigerian and African leader who wanted the best for his people. It was at the height of the Cold War when the internecine ideological warfare between the United States and Old Soviet Union was at its zenith. Any African leader who was bold, courageous and forceful on Afrocentric progressivism was targeted as communist and socialist. The America's CIA did it to Dr Kwame Nkumah, founding President of independent Ghana (formerly Gold Coast) when they used the British M15 to topple him on February 24, 1966 when Nkrumah was on his way to Indo-China to intervene in the crisis in that part of the world. In his celebrated book; "In Search of Enemies; A CIA Story," Mr. John Stockwell gave a blow-by-blow account of how the LBJ Administration set the stage for the overthrow of President Nkrumah. Stockwell was stationed in Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) and another CIA officer stationed in Accra, Ghana coordinated the coup plot in alliance with the British M15. According to Stockwell; "The inside story came to me from an egotistical friend, who had been chief of the CIA station in Accra at that time while I was stationed in Ivory Coast."
Disgruntled elements in the Ghanaian Armed Forces wanted Nkrumah out at all costs and attempted several assassination plots against him and egged on by the West, "An all-out offensive is being waged against the progressive, independent (African) states. All that has been needed was a small force of disciplined men to seize the key points of the capital city and to arrest the existing political leadership. It has been one of the tasks of the CIA and other "Western" similar organizations to discover these potential quislings and traitors in Africa, and to encourage them by bribery and the promise of political power, to destroy the constitutional governments in Africa."
The West did it to Lumumba in the Congo, Milton Obote in Uganda and the French did theirs in Niger, Central African Republic, Togo and Chad. Patrice Lumumba of Congo was equally assassinated and the West brought a military buffoon in Mobutu to power who bleed the nation dry and played the stooge of America for nearly five decades. In neighboring Togo, French imperialism played its hands out when founding president of the Republic of Togo, Dr Sylvanus Epiphanio Olympio was assassinated on January 13, 1963 by a rag tag army sponsored by France and led by an illiterate Master Sergeant Gnasingbe Eyadema. On the day President Olympio was about to be assassinated in Lome, the state capital, he escaped from the Presidential Palace in Lome and ran to the gate of the French Embassy. As he shouted his name and requested to be let in, the French officials refused him entry and Eyadema and his gang of assassins closed in on him and as Eyadema recounted the incident much later in broken French Language, he said he was the one that should be given the credit for assassinating President Olympio. Eyadema, a military ogre and another buffoon planted on Togo by the French imperialists went on to pillage and ravage the tiny West African nation for nearly four decades before he went the way of lesser mortals in 2005. In the 1990s I had the opportunity to meet with the first son of late President Olympio, Gilchrsit who is still in political exile in Ghana almost fifty years after his father was assassinated.
In Nigeria, Gen. Murtala Muhammad meant well for the nation. Like the current President Buhari, Gen. Murtala Muhammad wanted a nation that works, where lawlessness and corruption were exterminated and probity was the guiding philosophy of public service. The Kano-born military strong man thought his other colleagues shared in his philosophy of a greater Nigeria, but he was mistaken. A raging bull; Muhammad had no rough edges to his demeanors and was on a roll, but the so-called "Nigerian factor" did him in. As he was being watched and abetted by his colleagues in the Nigerian Armed Forces, so also the United States had him in their cross hairs. His last undoing was the speech he gave to other African leaders at the OAU Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on January 11, 1976 titled: "Africa Has Come of Age." Immediately the speech got to President Gerald Ford in Washington, DC, the CIA and the National Security Council of the Ford Administration met and an Executive Order was issued by President Ford to the CIA to take out Gen Muhammad. On Friday February 13, 1976 in Obalende Lagos Island, a group of Nigerian soldiers ambushed the Head of State; Gen Murtala Ramat Muhammad. He was assassinated. He had been in power for only six months but during that brief spell, he achieved a lot and was patriotically -focused and nationalistically-committed. How was the CIA able to achieve this? Once again, they linked up with the British Intelligence Unit-M15-which in turn recruited Col. Bukar Dimka and his base fellows to carry out the heinous crime. This was why Col. Dimka went to the British High Commission on that ill-fated day wanting to make a call to Gen. Yakubu Gowon on whose behest the coup was staged in order to return him to power. But according to de-classified information by the CIA, President Ford and his Security Team discussed extensively on who would be put in charge after Gen. Muhammad was removed and his deputy, Lt-Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo was spotted. The CIA gave Obasanjo a heads up on the Friday February 13, 1976 coup and that was the reason Obasanjo left Lagos on Thursday night for Abeokuta. His actions in office and since then have confirmed that Obasanjo is the creation of America's CIA. Gen. Obasanjo as Head of State later invited President Jimmy Carter who had succeeded President Ford in Office as U.S. President on an official State Visit to Nigeria between March 31 and April 3, 1978; the first time an American President would pay an official visit to Nigeria.
Each time a serious-minded and progressive-looking man wants to cleanse up Nigeria, the few selfish and corrupt cliques determined to continually see Nigeria prostrate and diminished would cause national sabotage. Since 1960, Nigeria had never had a free, fair and transparent election until June 12, 1993 when Nigerians of all hues set aside moth-eaten differences and voted for Chief MKO Abiola as president. Again, the agents of retrogression in concert with their local lackeys within Nigeria led by a military thug, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida killed Hope and took Nigeria on the precipice. What was Chief MKO Abiola's Sin? He dared to come to Washington, DC and address a press conference which was widely reported by The New York Times. At the world press conference here in the United States, Abiola vowed to banish poverty from Nigeria. He said he could not fathom why, Nigeria with all its abundant human and material resources was underdeveloped and as an astute businessman, he would use the natural resources of the country for the betterment of its people. He said everywhere he goes, he sees the black man is always at the bottom and he said he would reverse this trend and ruled Nigeria as president to give dignity, honor and prestige to the African people both in Black Africa and the Diaspora. He then announced the formation of Social Movement for Reparation in 1991 to the delight of Africans and African-Americans present at the press conference. MKO Abiola was rich; he was not likely to steal when he became president and if he went ahead to implement all his laudable promises, things would have changed for the better in Nigeria and Africa. The West didn't want it and so he had to be stopped, especially his new and sensible crusade for Social Movement for Reparation. And to be sure, MKO Abiola was making a solid point and cogent argument that, if America could pour billions of money into Western Europe after WWII under the Marshal Plan in order to rebuild the ruins and carnage inflicted on the Continent by the Germans and if the West also helped the Jews to find and found a homeland in 1947, certainly, equity demands that the West should fund another Marshall Plan after the decolonization of Africa to make up for 400 years of slavery and neglect, notably, the hundred years of exploitation and degradation by the racist Boers in the erstwhile laager of Southern Africa. A notable and a go-to-spook in America's intelligence circle told me in one of our numerous conversations that the United States was lukewarm in supporting Nigerian progressives from retrieving the June 12, 1993 presidential mandate of Chief MKO Abiola because of Abiola's Social Movement for Reparation. For America to "work" in Nigeria nay Africa on the June 12, 1993 episode and the subsequent murder of Chief MKO Abiola, they were able to use another Nigerian military nonentity and gangster known as Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida.
They are at again in 2015; the agents of poverty, penury, and retrogression, reactionary forces and the bad guys who do not want Nigeria to move forward. They are regrouping, because they have stolen too much and they are determined to stop President Buhari. The first time Buhari came as military head of state, Babangida and his gang of cocaine and heroin cartel had their backs to the walls. Gen. Buhari and his late deputy, Gen. Tunde Idiagbon were so nationalistically-committed and patriotically-focused; they were determined to rescue Nigeria. The Western imperialists went to work, because it is to their advantage that Nigeria continuously lies prostrate and they have willing lackeys within Nigeria to do their biddings. Forget about their public avowals, but examine their track records and actions. The Buhari Military Regime stood up to the World Bank and the IMF and rejected all their conditionality in 1984. Then their government came in after the August 27, 1985 coup and just as it happened in 1976, Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher paid official state visit to Nigeria and Babangida implemented all the conditionality of the World Bank and IMF. The days of the locusts began; since that time Nigeria has never been the same. Nigerians prayed and we sacrificed and fasted; Nigerians at home and abroad cried to the Lord God Almighty that the darkness should be lifted out of the nation's horizon. For 16 agonizing years, the agents of backwardness and retrogression held the entire Nigerian nation by the jugulars. They kept on recycling themselves and those who should have been tried for treason like Babangida and his band of military thugs became godfathers. The military-civilian alliance foisted nonentities on us until this year when Nigerians of all hues resolved that enough was enough. This time around, the global environment has changed, and changed incredibly. Information travels fast and young men and women, Nigerians at home and abroad became involved and Providence gave us General Muhammadu Buhari. Real Change has arrived. But now that Real Change is being threatened once again as the backward elements did in 1976, 1985 and 1993, but we must stop them.
The Second Coming of Buhari in 2015: The second coming of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari was by Providence. Since June 12, 1993 when Chief MKO Abiola won resoundingly the first, free, fair and most transparent presidential election in Nigeria's history, the progressive arm of the Nigerian elite had been denied the opportunity to govern Nigeria. It appeared as if all our efforts on June 12, 1993 were a complete waste. The reactionary forces grew in strength and stature and even were running the show underground. They brought Obasanjo back and rigged the election for him for two terms (1999-2007). Obasanjo himself brought a sicker and single-handedly gave him the presidency. Another dour fellow stepped in after the sicker went his natural way. The undoing of these political parasites was when they overreached themselves and boasted they would rule Nigeria forever. Then Providence stepped in, the prayers of Nigerians were answered and for the first time after nearly quarter of a century, a government that grew up from the genuine aspirations and legitimate hopes and interests of the Nigerian people was installed. They did all within their powers in the last presidential election to kill Change just as they murdered Hope on June 12, 1993, but they discovered the world has changed considerably and if they tried it, they would be consumed. Nigerians should be eternally grateful to those courageous and fearless men and women too numerous to mention who mobilized and ensure that Change came to Nigeria this year. The man who epitomizes this Change is President Muhammadu Buhari. But as we shouted in April 2015 that the evil doers were about to poison the president-elect, these retrogressive minds are still hell-bent in causing mischief in Nigeria. Their capacity for evil continues to grow daily, because it is to their selfish and self-centered interests that Nigeria remains the way she is: prostrate, underdeveloped, poor and diminished. They are regrouping again to throw Nigeria into darkness and confusion. This is not a bugaboo, but it's real.
WHY THEY STILL WANT TO KILL THE PRESIDENT? We sounded the alert shortly after Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd) was declared President-Elect in April 2015 that plans were afoot to poison him. They pulled all the strings to make sure President-Elect Buhari was not sworn in. They attempted to poison him as this was an open secret but thank the Lord God Almighty for prophecy; Buhari listened and jetted out of the country. The problem with Buhari is because he is Mr. Clean. They know he doesn't womanize; he's a teetotaler and an austere straight-jacketed and ramrod military general in the mold of the late Gen. Murtal Ramat Muhammad. They know he is coming to clean up Nigeria but these reactionary elements have stolen so much that they are ready to do anything and any how to stop the Cleansing Exercise. At 74, they knew Buhari cannot change now and cannot be compromised. While President Muhammadu Buhari was here on official state visit, the reactionary elements were holding meetings in Abuja and nocturnal enclaves around the country and their agenda? How to stop this Change Train! When Diezani Allison-Madueke offered to pay back $250 million from the $6billion she has stolen from the Nigerian Government in four years, you ought to know that she and her bedfellows are ready to do anything to abort Hope and Change. The looting was just mind-boggling and in the 5 disastrous years of the Jonathan Pestilence, it was as if tomorrow didn't exist. This time President Buhari should not let them succeed. Nigerians should be vigilant; the Lord God Almighty is showing us that these evil thieves and retrogressive souls will do anything to frustrate, abort and if possible, kill the president.
As a military head of state, Gen. Buhari was toppled by Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida and his drug thugs the last time, because Buhari took some issues for granted. He has disclosed that as much himself; he said he thought that his other colleagues in the then Supreme Military Council-SMC- bought into the progressive ideas of good governance and salvaging Nigeria. Now 30 years later, Mr. President should understand right now that not all your other colleagues in the APC and inner circle share your vision of deodorizing and sanitizing Nigeria. Many are already positioning themselves to shout as it's the tradition in Nigeria: "This is our time." It will be extremely difficult to do an honest job in Nigeria, precisely because majority of Nigerians aren't ready for an honest job. Virtually every Nigerian knows what is wrong with Nigeria and can advance every conceivable solution to fix her, but when it comes to the heavy lifting, few are ready to walk the walk. The forces you are fighting are formidable and those that will confront and sabotage your efforts are plenty. They have stolen so much and have access to unearned wealth and filthy lucre that getting a deranged psychopath with a gun to shoot you at the National Mosque in Abuja will be very easy. If I were you Mr. President, I would never; I repeat never, reenact that masses mob you pulled off at the National Mosque in Abuja during the last Eid-il Fitri Celebration. You don't endear yourself to the masses by shaking hands with them at the mosque, but lift off their burdens of poverty, oppression, injustice and provide transparent and good governance. You can't achieve these objectives if you are assassinated. This will never happen in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen. You should realize Mr. President that there are only three of you in the history of Africa that Providence has kindly bestowed the unique and onerous opportunity of being returned to power namely: President Milton Obote of Uganda, President Olusegun Obasanjo of Nigeria and you President Muhammadu Buhari. It's extremely rare for a second chance at the presidency in a nation as Nigeria of nearly 200 million human beings.
I read that you said you want to be the people's president and as such will not use siren and your presidential motorcade will stop at traffic lights. That was how they assassinated Gen. Murtala Ramat Muhammad on Friday February 13, 1976 on his way to the mosque at Obalende, Lagos. They are planning the same thing for you between now and your first six months in office. It's good to be the people's president, but Mr. President, get the best security you can get so that you will be alive to carry out thorough cleansing of the Nigeria's Augean Stable. This is what is disturbing the reactionary forces plotting evil at night in Nigeria right now and hear the question they asked themselves at the various nocturnal meetings they are holding inside and outside Nigeria as the Holy Spirit revealed to us: "If we kill Buhari and he's gone, how do we deal with a pastor as the new president?" As the Words of Life says in Ephesians 5: 11-12: "Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret." In my article in this column last year and later earlier this year predicting your election victory, I disclosed that your choice of Professor Yemi Osinbajo was the catalyst for your election victory. This was revealed to us by the Holy Spirit in this column on Monday February 09, 2015 and we explained why you would win the 2015 presidential election on your fourth attempt as revealed to us by the Holy Spirit of the Lord God Almighty (https://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/020915.html). Again, we are reiterating to you now that your safety and successful tenure as president between now and 2019 and whether you will make a second term from 2019-2024 will be dependent on your relationship with your vice-president. The Sovereign Lord God Almighty of the heavens and earth and all that are in them made it so and do not let any anyone deceive you contrary to our revelation from the True Lord God Almighty.
THOSE BUHARI SHOULD CALL UPON FOR THIS CLEANSING EXERCISE
President Buhari, you cannot clean up Nigeria on your own. Coincidentally, your party's symbol is the broom and as you know in our local adage, a broom needs the cooperation of fellow brooms to sweep clean or as they say: "We have come requires more than One." You are Mr. Clean, there is no doubt about that and even here in the United States, your personal integrity and character for honest job in Nigeria are not in doubt. But you are not the only Clean Person in Nigeria and so you need to identify few other Clean Nigerians and make some your "kitchen cabinet members." Do not take the loyalty of old colleagues and friends for granted, because some are already plotting with the reactionary forces to infiltrate and bring down your government. Identify those who are truly interested in your transparent agenda to fix Nigeria. Do not take the promises of the United States Government for granted at face value. American officials have no loyalty to any foreign leader but to our country, the United States of America, period. They would say anything in your presence to make you feel good, but will do anything in your absence when you return to your country to protect the interests of the United States of America and only that interests, period! If they have not already reached out to those reactionary forces that you are battling with in Nigeria, they will soon reach out to them to tell them what you discussed with them when you visited about repatriating the nearly $150b loot that Nigerian men and women squirrelled out of the nation to the West. You and your administration should not be na´ve to think and really believe America will release that loot back to Nigeria easily. Forget about what you are told and what administration official say in public. This is how the game of international politics is played. America will only act when they see that you are firmly in control and entrenched in your position in Nigeria and you are somehow able to liquidate all those reactionary forces posing formidable threats to a restructured Nigeria. You need a crack team of patriotically-committed and nationalistically-motivated Nigerians ready to team up with you to cleanse Nigeria. It will not be easy; it will be strenuous, sometimes you may have to set aside legal niceties and go extra-judicial in order to rescue the Nigerian nation. The United States of America still does that once in a while, even with her long history of five centuries of democracy. It is not easy to instill love for one's nation in a land where anything goes and it has been business as usual for half a century. Stop driving away all the capitalists and the bourgeois elements in Nigeria; your administration needs some of them to rescue Nigeria. I have given you few names of Nigerians you need in your administration to clean up Nigeria. Your personal security is very, very important. The larcenists in Nigeria are entrenched, formidable, crude, wicked and devilish and are ready to do anything to frustrate and assassinate you, but if you listen to genuine advice and take certain precautions, you will succeed in cleansing Nigeria and leave a legacy. You will not end up like Gen. Murtla Muhammad or Chief MKO Abiola, because there is no one worth celebrating who is a dead hero.
HOW THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY REVEALS HIS WILL TO US THROUGH HIS WORD: THE HOLY BIBLE?
(Continuation of our Series on How to Know God's Will)
The Holy Bible is the Book of Life. I laugh at those ignorant and spiritually-blind people who talk tongue-in-cheeks that the Greatest Book and best-selling tome in human history has been falsified and re-edited. If that was the case, these cautionary statements in Revelation 22: 18-19 should have been removed by the falsifiers and editors: "I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll." The Holy Bible is not a book of rules and commands as erroneously believed by those lacking spiritual discernment. It is not also a book of destiny. The Holy Bible is the Book of Decision that every human being MUST make in the journey of life. It's either you give your life to your Creator and live the life He stated to be lived in His Word that is pleasing to Him or you live your life the way you want. Its either you conduct yourself in this temporary world according to His Manual; that is, the Holy Bible or your live your life the way it's pleasing to you. It can't be both. For your decision, there are consequences for sure and make no mistake about it.
In His Word, He told us unambiguously in Joshua 1: 1-8: "This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it, for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success." Your life does not belong to you and I can tell you that, all those who have attempted to live and run their lives the way they wanted have ruined their lives. You don't own what you cannot control and since you don't know when and how you will die, then your life doesn't belong to you. There is One who owns your life and when He is ready, He will ask for it at His own time and choosing. Apostle Peter called Him the "Author of Life" (Acts 3: 15) and as an author myself, I know what that means. This Author of Life speaks all the time and His Words are loud and clear in His Revealed Word: the Holy Bible. This book has changed my life and I have seen it change the lives of countless people who have taken the time to read it. One of the ways through which we can hear from the True Lord God Almighty is His Word; the Holy Bible. Take time to read and study the Greatest Book on Earth and hear the True Lord God Almighty speak and talk to you.
