A sword in the hands of a drunken slave is less dangerous than the Presidency of a powerful but lawless nation in the hands of political actors with a track record of corruptly enriching themselves. Continue reading “To Retire Tinubu In 2023, Nigerians Must Reject Atiku on February 16th”
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”
This week, Ohanaeze Youths met Buhari and demanded the 2023 Presidency.
I will suggest these next steps.
- Tell Nnia Nwodo to stop acting like Nnamdi Kanu
- Educate our brothers & sisters to leave emotions at home and think with their heads while in Nija political jungle
- Stop deploying the defeatist tendency of labeling Igbos that refused to buy into the flawed and sinking ticket of Atiku-Obi as paid agents
- Most importantly, stop talking and start working for 2023

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?”
Dear 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?

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”
Hausa Fulani Slave! Hausa Fulani Slave! Hausa Fulani Slave! Hausa Fulani Slave! That and so much more vileness was the backlash that some of us had to contend with for supporting Buhari is 2015. Now that those who supported Buhari and those currently supporting Atiku Abubakar are all “Hausa-Fulani Slaves”, I welcome my brothers Prof. Ben Nwabueze, Peter Obi, Osita Chidoka, Ike Ekweremadu FFK, et.al and my sisters Chidimma, Ifeoma, Chisom, et.al to the world of Hausa Fulani slavery, with love.
To open this love letter to my Igbo brothers (including FFK) and sisters with this words that I have was not done in haste. It was not easy and I gave a serious thought to whether I should open with such a repulsive derogatory epithet “Hausa-Fulani Slave.” Why give power even inadvertently, to the demeaning words and its destructive discourse? The answer is simple; truth must be told and political hypocrites must be exposed and ridiculed.
So, my aim here is certainly not to give power to the destructive discourse but to lay bare the ugliness of the politics of bigotry and hypocrisy. If you like, you can call me a truth teller or someone who dares to hold a disagreeable mirror up to my brothers and sisters and ask that they take a long and hard look without fleeing, running away or threatening to expel nonconforming voices from closed WhatsApp groups. Continue reading “Prof. Nwabueze, Chidoka, FFK, Peter Obi, et.al. Are “Hausa Fulani Slaves””
They met at Afor Nnobi last year during Ashaolu, the New Yam festival. They had gone on a couple of dates in Lagos and laughed a lot, especially when she made fun of him. Emeka was talking about introducing Uju, his girlfriend to our family members when she revealed: she will vote for Buhari. That was when e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g turned up-side-down. My brother Emeka, an IPOB activist who recently metamorphosed to Atiku supporter told me he will stop seeing her. “That is it”, he told me.
To put this story in context, I should mention that Emeka, the youngest in his family has been searching for a wife for over three years now. His friends and sisters have been urging him to get a good lady from his hometown, Nnobi. They argued that since the spouses of all his siblings are from other towns, it will be good to have someone from the same town to “keep watch” over their properties at home. From the first day, my brother met Uju, he liked her and everyone in the family have been excited and happy for them.

My high school classmates asked me to “profile holistically the pedigree of this man Omoloye Sowore” and why Nigerians should stand with him in 2019. Justifiably, like millions of Nigerians, they are skeptical of politicians. Experience has taught Nigerians to see politics as a crooked business. Nigerians fear that Sowore will become as greedy as politicians and should rather stay an activist, “shouting from the outside”. These Nigerians are genuinely worried that the system is so corrupt that Sowore will be changed. They are right, but what if Sowore is different? What if he succeeds?
Before we get to his success, let’s go back to his “holistic profile”. Sowore, was born in 1971 and hails from Ondo State. He is a graduate of University of Lagos and holds a master’s degree in public administration from Columbia University, New York, United States. He was a student union leader who stood against military rule; was jailed, and has remained in the forefront of the struggle for democracy and good governance in Nigeria. As well as being the founder of Sahara Reporters, Omoloye Sowore teaches Modern History at the University of New York. He has been a powerful activist over the last 25 years – on the street, in the media, at police stations and in the face of corrupt bloody power.

In Chinua Achebe’s classic, the Arrow of God, Obika, one of the sons of the chief priest of Ulu, Ezeulu, was whipped by a white man in the marketplace. Ezeulu was so furious with his son to the point of almost cursing him before he held himself back. He later lamented that “…stranger (the white man) can whip a son of mine and go unscathed because my son has nailed up his ear against my words.” He added that “…were it not so… I would have swallowed him (the white man) whole and brought him up again. I would have shaved his head without wetting the hair.”
For years, I have been warning Ndigbo to be wary of Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK), but my brothers nailed their ears against my words. Now, FFK has stabbed my Supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at the back and whipped him and his IPOB supporters mercilessly and proceeded to kiss Kwankwaso, a “northerner”. If not that I had warned Ndigbo that FFK is a loud-mouthed terrorist bent on destroying us, I would have shaved FFK’s hair and banned him from smoking weed, forever. FKK twisted the minds of a generation of Ndigbo towards hating the north and Hausa-Fulanis only to turn around and embrace the same north. What a hypocrite, what a betrayer.
