Nigeria yet again holds on to the third position in global terrorism attack

terrorism-index

Notice: Array to string conversion in /home/obyoriji/public_html/wp-content/plugins/insert-post-ads/apis/vi/api.php on line 419

As the Global terrorism index, releases its 2018 ranking on Wednesday, Nigeria still retains its third position in the ranking.

Recall that the giant of Africa has retained this shocking position since 2015.  Report from the Global Terrorism Index, that measures the impact of terrorism, shows that Nigeria comes immediately after Iraq and Afghanistan.

The two countries have also retained their respective positions (first and second) since 2013.

My Opinion 

I dint know who did this whole thing, the amount of credibility that the revelation holds, and the amount of research taken place for this . It could be that the whole world want to call Nigeria the worst name possible ever in the book. Could it be that the amount of complains and exposure the citizens of Nigeria do on social media, and the fact that Nigeria is targeted gravely by the big world since her land has oil and other natural mineral. So they are constantly trying to create some form of chaos in the country, so the citizens can get fingered up enough to physically attack the leader and kill them like it was a “Hunger Game”, like they did to Gaddafi who was shamefully killed and his government  assassinated intensely. This whole thing should be read and assimilated with a pinch of salt. Nigeria is  not as horrible as these countries try to make her seem.  We have horrible leaders that have placed the country in very horrible state of affairs,  and forcing it’s citizens to move  into a desperate  state of survival mode and turning to financial  Crimes to make a living for themselves and their  people.

Political lies : I regret joining APC — Atiku

punchnewspapers-1543039836151

Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has apologised for joining the groups, who came together to form the All Progressives Congress.

He said, “I regretted being a part of the party which never deemed it fit to fulfil all of the promises it made to Nigerians.

“If I had known that the APC would be such a colossal failure and disgrace, I would never had joined the party.

“The APC has failed to fulfill even one of the promises it made to Nigerians. The APC is simply an assembly meant to defraud Nigerians.”

Speaking further, the former Vice-President said that the country would not survive another four years if the APC was returned to power in 2019.

Mr Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, says the Federal Government has awarded N206 billion contract for the main work on the Second Niger Bridge. Fashola who spoke in Abuja during an interactive session with newsmen  noted that the contract was awarded to Julius Berger Construction Company. Fashola who spoke in Abuja during an interactive session with newsmen  noted that the contract was awarded to Julius Berger Construction Company. He said that the project, expected to be completed in 36 months would be funded under the Presidential Infrastructure Development Fund (PIDF).

According to him, funding the project under PIDF means that work will no longer stop on account of lack of funding.

He said that the Lagos-Ibadan expressway and Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano road projects would also be funded under PIDF.

Fashola said that the contract for the main work on the Second Niger Bridge was awarded after the completion of the four phases of the project.

He said that the early works were preliminary projects to be completed before the main work, adding that all the early works were done in the river and not visible from the existing bridge.

According to him, with the award of the main work, there will be a lot of piling works in the water and that is what people will see.

My Opinion 

We hope all these talks will be put into action and not just anlysis and more analysis that won’t change a thing. Nigerians want change, they want hope, they want a future that will give their children a reason to thrive, a reason to stand tall amongst their peers from around the world. Today is a bridge, tomorrow is a better leadership, a better financial management of the country’s treasury. This is the time for a change in this exploited land.

Rihanna Endorses Andrew Gillum as first black Governor of Florida.

badgalriri-1541370466167

@badgalriri – FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support. Let’s #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!

Taylor Swift lets out her Opinion on Election

taylorswift–1540744641415

@taylorswift – I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.
I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.
So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈

In a never seen before video, Obama Calls out President Donald Trump on his Lies .

Bail Is Free: Court Grants Fayose N50m Bail

instablog9ja-1540676132398

Ayodele Fayose, former Governor of Ekiti State, has been granted bail in the sum of N50 million.

His second appearance before the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Wednesday, lasted less than 30 minutes.

He was also asked to provide a surety who must have landed property in Lagos. The guarantor is also required to have three-year tax clearance in Lagos.

Fayose was arraigned before Justice Mojisola Olatoregun by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on charges of corruption.

Fayose is facing an 11-count charge bothering on receiving illegal monies to fund his 2014 governorship campaign in Ekiti State, among other allegations of benefitting from proceeds of money laundering.

My Opinion

The fact that this case is suddenly coming to this slow motion, is not a secret. It has been the way of our nation. But I thought they said Bail is free? 50 million doesn’t sound like free to me.

“Nigeria will be greater”- VP Yemi Osinbajo

no thumb

While giving a speech at the #Felabrayion2018, the ever encouraging, ever hopeful, ever gentle, and ever composed  Vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Pastor Yemi Osibanjo known for his peaceful deaminor and hopefullness for every matter about life since Jesus is known to be in charge and taking the wheels of the country since its existence, has once again encouraged the Citizens of the country.

The vice president once again is reminding the country that things will be better with their Regime in power for the next four years.

Since he obviously knows what we don’t,  we are immediately drawn  into believing what he says, since he is a  gentle pastor . But then again, this won’t be the first time a pastor is boldlying saying something that isn’t backed up in anyway.

We are now left to go with our instinct, even though we all share something in common as humans. We all are all hopeful that Nigeria will be cured from its deep rooted diseases,  and eventually become a Country we and the future children will be proud of soon.

From the look of things, He is clearly speaking from hope and anticipation like we all are,  and we cannot hold him accountable for a public hopeful speech now can we? He was said to have prayed for the crowd and the country at large.

But what is a pastor doing in a shrine?  What is a prophetess doing in a royal home where every kind of ritual was performed before she could step into her new home? Don’t ask me ca use I too dot know what to say to that.

Just as Peter Obi is picked as running mate to Atiku, IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu surfaces in Jerusalem.

no thumb

Should Nigerians expect another batch of protests, cursing out,  incessant killings and another set of detention between the federal government and the South-Eastern people of Nigerian?

This  veru specific question is coming from  the recent surfacing and  praying  video disseminated all the way from Jerusalem to Nigeria by one of  the once visiblyou active leader of the IPOB, Kanu Nnamdi.

The leader who has been on exile since being released from prison, where he was granted bail after over of year of being detained, has since disappeared and didn’t surface despite all attempt to imprison  the people who were behind his escape and safety.

While encouraging the youths of the igbos to agitate and give ultimatum to the fedreal government  for his disappearance, igbo leaders created a distraction to have their man peacefully leave the shores of this land.

As it was assumed, that he had been abducted by the federal government through the Army,  and silently killed. Without a word of encouragement to his followers who were known to love him so much as to worship, people who very well knew they were all on their own even before now, people whi have had to face the consequences of their own actions with no support from their holy leader, there seems to be an impressive level of confusion that has died down, giving birth to the well enjoyed peace and redirected priority to themselves and their livelihood.

A significant amount calmness from all of that chaos gave the right soundness to the mind of his die hard fans who for one reason or the other aren’t sure what the master plan is any longer.

After all the healing and recovery done to the minds of these youths, all the time past and peace returned to a certain degree to the hearts and minds of this people, reducing the tension amongst youth, and increasing the focus on businesses, this man is now showing up again.

While it has been known that the followers of Mr Kanu, either lose their life or rot in prison,dimensions are getting smarter, while some are deciding to die there despite it all, what should we expect from this resurfacing again?

Is this for the simple fact that Peter Obi as been chosen by Abubakar Atiku as the running mate? Could it be that he is now well rested and has decided to come back out for another batch of turmoil?  This is disturbing to think of the ripple effect of this resurfacing. Will everyone leave their prioprites and former another protest group?

With the Country drawing close to the day where Nigerians decide between an incumbent president and a former vice president of the country, many are wondering what will be of the country since every decision assumed to be taken, will always  lead an uncertain result. The country is not exactly excited with this turn of event, especially with the igbos feeling like they have been dropped between the devil are ways nd the deep blue sea.

Singer Omawumi on the stage, is beginning to advocate for change. The kind that comes former he hands of the masses, not the one promised by a leader who has failed before, or a leader in whom hopes have been lost. The singer is coming out to remind Nigerians of their duty to self to vote right and smart,not looking for instant financial gains, greed or association to the politician in question.

Competency And A Broken Clock: The Case Behind An Incoming Vice President MR.PETER OBI

images

COMPETENCY AND A BROKEN CLOCK
A WEAKNESS OF ATTITUDE BECOMES A WEAKNESS OF CHARACTER!!!

WHO IS CHRIS UBAH? AND ALSO THE NEW WAILER IN PERSON OF HIS H.E DAVID
UMAHI (GOVERNOR OF EBONYI STATE)
Even the atmosphere knows that there is a big misunderstanding and
misconceptions going on in the eastern part
Of the country towards the emergence of the name H.E, MR.PETER OBI (FORMER
GOVERNOR OF ANAMBRA STATE)
Towards him to be the running mate and also the VICE PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL
REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, In the next coming PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 2019 UNDER
THE PLATFORM OF THE PEOPLE`S DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF NIGERIA (PDP)
The last time I checked, I never saw or thought of MR. CHARLES SOLUDO (FORMER
GOVERNOR OF CBN) To be a member of the PEOPLE`S DEMOCRATIC PARTY (PDP)
So how come some groups of persons are creating an ocean out of tears drop in
making sure that MR. CHARLES SOLUDO becomes the running mate of H.E, SIR
ATIKU ABUBAKAR, In short this DETRAQUE effect is that of H.E MR.DAVID UMAHI
OF EBONYI STATE and His Cohort MR. CHRIS UBAH
During the heat of the moment where was MR. CHARLES SOLUDO in last year
ANAMBRA STATE GUBERNATORIAL ELECTION? Because I can`t remember seeing
MR.CHARLES SOLUDO in any of PDP`s campaign, talk more of participating under
the said party. So am still wondering and amazed of where and how MR. CHARLES
SOLUDO`s name came about of being H.E, SIR ATIKU ABUBAKAR`s running mate,
which brings about the case of MR.DAVID UMAHI OF EBONYI STATE.
In the case of H.E, MR. DAVID UMAHI OF EBONYI STATE, whom in solely respect
but started to value loyalty over competency, which we all know that his bloodline
is ninety percent (90%) with the ALL PROGRESSIVE CONGRESS, with just a little skin
sleeves with the PEOPLE`s DEMOCRACY PARTY, So why is he taking it so personal
and causing a wild spread fire for the choice of a Vice President for the PEOPLE`s
DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
Someone whom has being on a BROMANCE with the ALL PROGRESSIVE PARTY is
now coming out to decide for who to become the PEOPLE`s DEMOCRATIC PARTY
RUNNING MATE FOR H.E ATIKU ABUBAKAR

MR. DAVID UMAHI and his cohorts are not and will never be the mouth piece of
the voters in the east, There is a collective atmosphere in the south east that all
hands should be on deck and work Symbolically and Significant towards the
betterment of our great nation NIGERIA and support H.E, MR. PETER OBI.
For the perfect way to achieve growths and goals is through Unity and Diversity
which is dead gone in Nigeria. So MR. UMAHI and his cohorts should have known
that because it is all in media outlets, and neither have MR. UMAHI and his cohorts
have being selected as statesmen or victor for the south east, talk less of being an
agent of positive energy.
MR. UMAHI said the south east governors agreed with H.E, ATIKU ABUBAKAR
towards making MR. CHARLES SOLUDO his running mate, and when H.E, ATIKU
ABUBAKAR changed his mind for MR. PETER OBI, he (UMAHI) never came back for
consultation for the sudden change of plans before creating an unfair political
atmosphere. Can someone please help me ask H.E, MR. DAVID UMAHI, that when
he picked his DEPUTY GOVERNOR did he consult anyone? Instead of you (H.E
DAVID UMAHI) and your cohorts to celebrate a man with a highly intellectual
intercourse of vision, you are here talking about an extinct grievances that is filled
with your self-centeredness. Instead of you and your cohorts to emulate the
governor of RIVER STATE, H.E WIKE NYESOM and forever governor of EKITI STATE,
H.E MR. AYO FAYOSE for their selfless and equitable stance towards nation building
and voice to the voiceless.
I was expecting you and your cohorts to stand firm towards being part of a team
that will bring about a Bold Economic Reforms and Emotional Learning Initiatives in
our Country, so as to defend your Mandate and deliver us from this Prison
Democracy while you are there Wailing over a BROKEN CLOCK that has brought us
a Political Nightmare.
I really don`t have much energy to waste on a man with a questionable character,
because you all know what happened between him, the former governor of
ANAMBRA STATE, H.E, DR. CHRIS NGIGE and H.E, MR. PETER OBI, which made the
latter H.E, MR. PETER OBI, checkmated him in the person of no other than MR.
CHRIS UBAH. For your information (MR. CHRIS UBAH) this is not about ANAMBRA
STATE OR H.E, MR PETER OBI, BUT AN ENDING TALE OF ANARCHIC SYSTEM OF
GOVERNANCE BY THE ALL PROGRESSIVE PARTY (APC) BECAUSE FOUR YEARS (4)
ALONE OF H.E, MR PETER OBI, POLITICAL ACHIEVEMENTS CAN NEVER BE COMPARE
TO THAT OF MR.DAVID UMAHI, THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR OF EBONYI STATE
WHOLE LIFE-TIME POLITICAL ACHIEVEMENTS INCLUDING THAT OF YOUR POLITICAL
FATHER FIGURE OTHER ROOM. IN VIEW TO THAT WE HAVE SETTLED FOR

SOMEONE WHO WILL GIVE US GOOD GOVERNANCE AND AS WELL FEEL THE PAINS
IF NIGERIANS. MR. UMAHI AND YOUR COHORTS TO YOU ARE FREE TO VOTE FOR
OTHER ROOM, BUT NOT WITH (99.9%) OF EBONYI STATE AND THE ENTIRE SOUTH
EAST WILL FOLLOW YOU TO DO THAT OF YOUR OTHER ROOM.
AND FINALLY, most of our Politicians are under the influence of BIG BUSINESS and
it failed us Woefully, We need a Radically Different Model which Democratically
plans the use of Resources and Production Capacity to meet Human Needs
Including most Especially THE NECESSITY OF A HABITABLE PLANET AND NATION.
DISRUPTIVE, NONVIOLENT, DISOBEDIENCE, is probably the only way to bring about
TRANSPARENCY AND TRANSFORMATION BACK TO OUR COUNRTY NIGERIA. IN
SERIOUS NEED OF REFORMS, THIS ELECTION IS ABOUT MORE THAN JUST NIGERIA.
IT HOLDS NATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE WHICH CAN LEAD THE NATION IN NEW VISIONS
THAT WORK FOR THE PEOPLE, THIS BELIEF AND MOVEMENT REPRESENT THE
FUTURE OF NIGERIANS AND DEDICATION TOWARDS BUILDING THE NIGERIA WE
DESERVE, AND ALL THIS CAN BE SEEN IN THE CONSISTENCY OF A MAN THAT
STANDS FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF HIS EXCELLENCY, SIR ATIKU
ABUBAKAR…THE TURAKI OF ADAMAWA!!!
THE SECRET OF CHANGE IS TO FOCUS ALL YOUR ENERGY NOT ON FIGHTING THE
OLD, BUT ON BUILDING THE NEW!!!

Why I criticised choice of Peter Obi as Atiku’s running mate –Gov Umahi

Governor-David-Umahi-of-Ebonyi-State

Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, says his social media critics over his position on Atiku Abubakar’s nomination of Mr. Peter Obi as a running mate are ‘uninformed.’

Umahi made the assertion on Tuesday in Abakaliki while addressing newsmen after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Development Programme on socio-economic development.

The governor, who is the Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum, condemned the critics.

He said, “Nobody is against Peter Obi, because he is my friend, competent and you must have seen our pictures together on the social media.”

Umahi explained that  South-East leaders were not consulted in making the decision on Obi’s nomination, while no one from Ebonyi and Imo states made the list of the running mate nominees.

“We must take decisions against the marginalisation of Ebonyi people because if we have to vote, we must be treated with equity.

“Two names of the nominees came from Anambra, two from Abia and one from Enugu, but none came from Ebonyi and Imo.

“What is wrong with somebody from Ebonyi and Imo? If you must know, one of the reasons an Ebonyi man is against regions in the country is the fear of further marginalisation,” he added.

Umahi maintained that southeast leaders must sit with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and that, if all must work together, the leaders must be part of the decision making.

“I am talking about the southeast people and if six people can come from other regions and take decisions, there must be somebody from the southeast zone.

“There is nothing like the southeast governor’s stand on the matter; but we are only saying that when decisions are taken and people from other regions are invited, those from the southeast must be invited.

“The southeast leaders never issued any statement on the matter and anybody from the zone who says that our stand is not good, is not a human being,” he said.

The governor remarked that if Atiku just picked his running mate without people from other regions seeing the list and making choices, there could have been no complaints.

“Nobody chooses the vice president for anybody; it is just like a wife issue; but if other people were on the list, people from Ebonyi should be there.

“Even if we would not make the list — as the choice is for Abubakar to make — we should know what disqualifies us from being picked,” he argued further.

“I cannot endorse Obi alone and I’m confident that in further decisions, the Igbo man must be consulted.

“If the position I had was my sin, I cannot repent from it,” he said.

The governor, however, urged the UNDP team to ensure the implementation of the MoU to sustain the gains of the Sustainable Development Goals in the state.

Dr. Samuel Bwalya, the UNDP Country Representative in Nigeria, explained that SDG dwelt on 17 goals with 169 targets aimed at eradicating poverty in UNDP-benefiting states and countries.

“UNDP focuses on governance, peace and conflict resolution, inclusive growth, job creation, environmental management and strategic support for the next five years of its intervention in Ebonyi.

Fayemi sworn in, says Fayose’s govt was an error

Fayemi

 

The Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress, has said the arrival of his government marks the end of the past administration which he described as an “error”.

The state Chief Judge, Ayodeji Daramola, administered the Oath of Allegiance and Oath of Office on Fayemi at about 12:20 pm. Fayemi’s deputy, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, had earlier taken his oath at about 12:07 pm.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Fayemi as the winner of the July 14 governorship election.

The results indicated that Fayemi polled 197,459 votes while his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, got 178,121 votes.

Fayemi noted that his government would review the financial status of the state with a rising debt, which he put at N170bn under the PDP-led government of Governor Ayodele Fayose.

Fayose had repeatedly denied borrowing money claiming the state’s debt was incurred by the previous government of Fayemi during his first term.

The governor said, “As much as today marks the beginning of a new phase in our history as a people, it also signals the end of an era, or more appropriately, the end of an error. Without a doubt, Ekiti has been through a terrible wilderness experience within the last four years,” he said.

“Our reputation as a people has been soiled and we have become the pot of jokes due to the ineptitude, loquacious ignorance and ravenous corruption masquerading as governance in our state during the last administration.

“As we assume office, it is our duty, and we will live up to it, to ensure we thoroughly review,  document, and widely disseminate the present state of affairs so that all and sundry can know what has become of our commonwealth.

“Independently verifiable preliminary findings indicate that we have been plunged into a debt abyss of over N170bn, with commitments to innumerable white elephants, an average of eight months’ salaries owed across government entities, and many state assets unaccounted for.”

“We will ensure that within 100 days from today, Ekiti Kete will know the true position of things, in keeping with our ethos of transparency and accountability in governance. We are not interested in trials by media, witch hunt or playing to the gallery. We will seek out the truth and lay it before our people.”

The former Minister stated that Ekiti under him won’t degenerate to the level of allowing schoolchildren to pay various taxes in their quests to receive a formal education.

He promised that his government would reinstate the N5,000 social security to the elderly and make tremendous positive impacts in the areas of agriculture, social investment and economy.

My Opinion

Talk is always cheap, and criticising the previous regime is even cheaper,  but we can only watch and see.

2019 presidency: I did not endorse Atiku — OYEDEPO

oyedepo

Contrary to the believe that was  created by the presidential to the general public, Living Faith Church or  Winners Chapel, head Bishop David Oyedepo, yesterday denied endorsing the very bold Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar,  for the 2019 presidential election.

In His words: “The recent killings in Plateau State is a moral assault on our nation. Nobody is qualified to be morally right, if he does not have feelings for loss of lives. I know how many times I cried over the killings in Nigeria. Some people claimed responsibility and nothing happened to them.

“The effect of the 30 months civil war is still with us. We won’t see war again in Nigeria. Those who want to see it, will be cut down.”

My Opinion:

Why is the presidential candidate so kin on giving the impression that everyone is on the same side with him? If you pay people a visit and they have no option than to honour it, it is not called endorsement,  it is called respect for you.  Don’t go concluding and interpreting things to suit you. A lot of Nigerians, whether significant or ordinary, have endorsed you. So don’t bother forcing others to do the same for you.  Everyone one must have a preference, which they sometimes will never speak of, or publicly admit. You making these sort of statements will for them to deny you even if they low key would have wanted to give you a chance. Let the rule of law take its time.

Atiku ‘ll not do better than Buhari—Balarebe Musa

images

Musa said: “Nigerians risk having a fascist government under Atiku because of his open alignment with former heads of state and retired generals, who have some questions to answer.

Ignore election noise, Buhari tells ministers

“That is why I am highly disappointed at the illusion by some Nigerians that Atiku is better than Buhari. There is absolutely no comparison between Buhari and Atiku.

“Former heads of state, retired generals and PDP are afraid of  Buhari’s second term bid. These people and the PDP are mortally afraid that if Buhari returned, he would probe the criminal annulment of June 12 and wage a more ruthless war against corruption.

“They are clearly ganging up against Buhari not because they don’t know that Atiku is no match to him but because they are aware that Atiku will not revisit their past misdeeds.

“Atiku should ask himself whether Obasanjo can easily forgive him and mobilise his part of the country for his victory in 2019.’’

My take:
Why are these retired generals after frosting a constitution on us also believe it is their rights to choose who leads us. I guess they met their match in Buhari. As for your so called *men of God* dabbling into politics, we know that *”Tithes are tight”*, patronage low and the private jets and luxurious lifestyles needs maintenance ditto the the traditional rulers. Isn’t it time the masses see through the charade? I believe Buhari is their nemesis after which a New Nigeria will emerge.

Atiku pays a visit to the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby.

Just when you think that the Presidential candidate can not go any deeper with his desperation,  he goes ahead and manages to do something higher.

Why should he be paying the ArchBishop a visit when he is not a Christian? What on earth was he disussing with the man, when he is not a Nigerian? Is this still part of his campaign? Suddenly you love the Igbos and the Christians? What then happens to this same people after you have won? They are thrown aside and tagged the problem of the Nation, deprived of social amenities and made to protest the injustice thrown at them? Will this be the same case we suffered last four years, when the president openly backed up his impartial ruling with the excuse that the Northerners voted for him., or the case where the  President protects his own people who have stolen outrageous amounts of money, while bringing to book their counterparts who are from the South East and PDP. Another election period has come and they are going about dressing in various tribal attires, giving the impression that they are for everybody and for no one. Well, while all of these are going on,  Nigerians need to be vigilante. After posting the photos with the Archbishop,  he caption it..

From @aatiku – I had the pleasure of meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby. We had very positive deliberations.
