Ohaneze Ndigbo And Deficit Of Political Intelligence

nwodo

Ohaneze Ndigbo led by Nnia Nwodo just failed the political intelligence test by endorsing Atiku on the day that President Buhari campaigned in Enugu and Anambra States.

This is endorsement is of no effect for these reasons:

  1. Majority of Igbos were already staunch supporters of Atiku-Obi ticket
  2. The Igbos that have refused to support Atiku and Obi will not be persuaded by this misstep by Ohaneze

Ohaneze claimed that the “the nomination of our son Peter Obi as the vice presidential candidate has given Ndigbo an opportunity for inclusivity. Ndigbo must seize the moment” Continue reading “Ohaneze Ndigbo And Deficit Of Political Intelligence”

Corruption In Nigeria And Ethno-Political-induced Protectionist Paradox

 

oshimole

Corruption has no class, no color, no ethnicity, no political affiliation, and no religion.

When in doubt, consult Oshiomhole.

Despite the colossal damage caused by corruption, the narrative of political and ethnic sentiments aimed at protecting the corrupt political class remains ingrained in Nigerian public consciousness.  This is what I call the Ethno-Political-induced protectionist paradox.

The question is why should we as a people continue to endorse democratization of corruption? Why are we not standing up to our kinsmen and members of our political party who are corrupt?

The failure of the Nigerian electorate to hold their political office holders/seekers accountable in the same way irrespective of ethnicity and political ideology has allowed sentiments to rule our lives and dictate choices.

Corrupt political entrepreneurs and praise singers in Nigeria, therefore, refer to political affiliation and manipulate ethnic sentiments in an attempt to achieve political power.

Per Confucius, in a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.

We all agree that from independence that Nigeria has not been well governed.

So, the question is; are you ashamed or proud of your political role model?

Apologies Atiku, You Are Not Corrupt, You are Corruption

atiku-abubakar-1Apologies Oga Atiku, you are clearly not corrupt. For years, I made the terrible mistake of calling you a chronically corrupt con artist. After listening to you yesterday, when you genuinely revealed to us that our beloved Presidential candidate who is campaigning on the promise to “fight” corruption better than Buhari does not even know the meaning of corruption, I realized that I was wrong.

Apologies Atiku, what I refer to as corruption is what you believe and eat. It is what you live for and what you are willing to die for.

After listening to you yesterday, I realized that you are corruption and that corruption is you. So, apologies for condemning you for whom you are. Continue reading “Apologies Atiku, You Are Not Corrupt, You are Corruption”

Political Tsunami???? Peter Obi Is Not The Man For Ndigbo, Simple.

Political Tsunami????

psunami

If you are building a house and a nail breaks, do you stop building or do you change the nail?

Peter was a dictator that ruled Anambra State for 8 good years, without transforming or reforming a single government agency or ministry in the state. Worst still no single interest or investment to develop human capital in the state. An embodiment of selfishness?

Please, go and listen again to Emperor Peter in all his speeches. All you will hear is “I”, “I…” “I…” never “we”, never “my administration”, never “my commissioner”.

Peter Obi’s story is always about an instance of personal heroism or an exploit. For 8 years as the governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi did not prepare a single young politician. He did not attract a single established politician to APGA fold in Anambra State.

He could not expand the footprint of APGA to any of the Igbo states in Nigeria. Not Abia, not Ebonyi, not even Enugu. Rochas initially won in Imo under APGA platform, still riding under the banner of Ikemba Nnewi. Once he won, he left APGA because he couldn’t work with Peter Obi.

When Goodluck Jonathan wanted to make Peter a Minister, the PDP stakeholders scuttled that, simply because everything with Peter is all about him.

When he was given the free hand to pick the governorship candidate of PDP in Anambra, all PDP stakeholders abandoned the party for him. None of the “heavyweights” in PDP in the entire southeast campaigned with him and his candidate Obaze in that election. He and Obaze were thus humiliated by Obiano.

So the question for Ndigbo with interest in the political jungle of Nigeria at the national level is; what type of man/woman do you need to be at the table with Atiku and the rest of Nigerian (assuming PDP wins)? Do you want a man that will be only interested in himself or a man that will fight for Ndigbo?

That is the question that should be at the back of our minds. Leave your emotion aside and think about that deeply.

 

 

 

Introducing Jennifer Douglas Atiku, The Con Artist

atiku jennifer

While applying an eye-clearing medicine, someone comes and says to put some pepper in.

While Nigerians are insisting that Atiku is unfit to hold public office for the illicit transfer of millions of Dollars used to acquire the license for American University of Nigeria (AUN), his wife Jennifer Douglas Atiku who helped in the transfer is telling Nigerians that the “PDP Govt will ensure uninterrupted education calendar.”

Per an investigation report by the United States Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, “From 2000 to 2008, Jennifer Douglas, a U.S. citizen and the fourth wife of Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President and former candidate for President of Nigeria, helped her husband bring over $40 million in suspect funds into the United States through wire transfers sent by offshore corporations to U.S. bank accounts.”

The transferred money made Atiku an “employer of labor” and a proud owner of the American University of Nigeria, a school, with tuition fees that more than 99% of Nigerian students cannot afford. Continue reading “Introducing Jennifer Douglas Atiku, The Con Artist”

Is Igbo Presidency in 2023 Already A Pipe-Dream?

igbo presidency

This week, Ohanaeze Youths met Buhari and demanded the 2023 Presidency.

I will suggest these next steps.

  1.  Tell Nnia Nwodo to stop acting like Nnamdi Kanu
  2.  Educate our brothers & sisters to leave emotions at home and think with their heads while in Nija political jungle
  3. Stop deploying the defeatist tendency of  labeling Igbos that refused to buy into the flawed and sinking ticket of Atiku-Obi as paid agents
  4. Most importantly, stop talking and start working for 2023

Jubril & 2nd Niger Bridge: What Happens When We Lie To Ourselves And Our Kids?

You are free to hate your President.
You are free to refer to your President as Jubril (Jubrin)
You are free to assume that the send Niger Bridge is a hoax

What you are not free to do is lie in the face of clear and verifiable evidence.

Whether 99% or 2 % of Igbos accept that the construction of 2nd Niger Bridge is finally a work in progress after 16 years of construction on paper is irrelevant.

Truth is not a democracy. Continue reading “Jubril & 2nd Niger Bridge: What Happens When We Lie To Ourselves And Our Kids?”

Peter Obi, A Pregnant Virgin In PDP’s Maternity Ward – A Love Letter

peter-obi-e1520004738570Dear Peter Obi, on February 23rd, 1927, physicist Werner Heisenberg first described his Uncertainty Principle which states that the more precisely we can determine a particle’s momentum, the less information we have about its position, and vice versa. On December 8th, 2018, the PDP stated precisely that your account was frozen by the EFCC and the opposition APC to slow down your momentum. Days after EFCC denied freezing your account; no one knows anything about your position. Virgin Peter, I understand that you are in labor in the PDP’s maternity ward, but I will still ask, did EFCC freeze your account?

Because you virgin Peter allowed the familiar PDP lies on account freezing to live, you went to the Vice-Presidential debate and ended up distorting facts; presenting alternative facts and lying with a straight face. Lies matter, Peter. Truth is not only violated by falsehood; it is equally outraged by silence. This is because all truths that are kept silent become poisonous. So, for the very last time, virgin Peter, tell Nigerians, did EFCC freeze your account?

Peter, Albert Einstein told us that one who is out to describe the truth should leave elegance to the tailor. Leaving elegance to the tailor, permit me, Peter, to state that contrary to the false impression of human capital development and economic transformation of Anambra state that you presented at the debate, the 8 years of your administration in Anambra was anchored around yourself (alone) and the churches (church-schism­). You, virgin Peter Obi, re-engineered the churches to lay down the cross and pick up the sword and fight for money from the government. Is that what you will do to the churches and mosques in Abuja?

Sowore, Buhari, Atiku And The 2019 Election: Why Corruption Matters

sowore buhar atiku

As we kick off the campaign for the 2019 general elections, the question on my mind is; can the wheels of democracy in Nigeria ever turn without the grease of corruption? Governance under PDP’s 16 years of looting was sustained by the grease of corruption; President Buhari rode to power in 2015 under the shadow campaign that was greased by Tinubu and Saraki’s BILLIONs. Atiku’s campaign is currently being greased by “thick” grease of a looted fund. It is interesting that Omoyele Sowore presidential ambition is the only transparent campaign that is powered by a token from millions of Nigerians. Will Nigerians reject corruption and stand with Sowore and African Action Congress (AAC)? Why does corruption matter in Nigerian elections?

Pope Francis once called corruption “the gangrene of a people.” That is, a “localized death and decomposition of body tissue, resulting from either obstructed circulation or bacterial infection.” Continue reading “Sowore, Buhari, Atiku And The 2019 Election: Why Corruption Matters”
