MKO Abiola (sitting center) was the editor and Olusegun Obasanjo (standing right) was the deputy editor of their school paper (Baptist Boys High School Abeokuta) The Trumpeter.
Jimmy Carter is a shadow Republican, a placeholder between Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. He continued the US policy that introduced corruption into the Nigerian political system and the destruction of moral, ethics and cultural values of Nigerians.
Nigerians have struggled for over 47 years to recover from the effects of a policy enacted by the Richard Nixon / Henry Kissinger administration and financed by the US oil industry, Mobil, Texaco, Union76, and Chevron.
They burned us with our own petrol.
Gen. Murtala Muhammed was assassinated under the administration of President Gerald Ford, for refusing to sign over Nigeria’s oil to American banking and oil interests and for refusing to devalue the naira to boost the dollar and profits of the US banking and oil industries. This policy was rubberstamped by the IMF and enforced by the US military.
When the Chair of the Supreme Military Council Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, made similar moves of protecting Nigerian assets and values and to curb the excesses of the Shehu Shagari administration that plunged Nigeria into the abyss, the US and Ronald Reagan having no interest in seeing Buhari tackle this problem green lighted the coup that kept Gen. Buhari in the cooler for several years.
This policy was used by all past US Presidents from Nixon to the current Trump, from the assassinations of Gen. Murtala Muhammed to Gen. Sani Abacha, Ken Saro-Wiwa, MKO Abiola and many more.
Since their first landing on the continent Americans have used the government to pillage and obtain whatever they want by force, having never paid a fair price for anything.
Corporate America wants uranium today so they invaded Niger with US Special Forces and pick a fight with North Korea as justification. The very idea of 93year old Jimmy Carter going to North Korea to match wits with a 33year old Kim is comical at best.
Why don’t they surprise Kim by invoking the ghost of Ronald Reagan, scare him with some old people technology. This is what happens when you have a bunch of senile old men in power just because they are white.
You see, we live in a superhighway of knowledge where the young are building the smart machines of the future. Kim Jong-un is young and smart and can build smarter machines with lesser resources.
At 33 years old Kim Jong-un is the leader of North Korea and supervising the building of nuclear weapons to protect his country from American aggression. What was Jimmy Carter doing at 33?
Americans believe just because Trump knows how to tweet every 5 minutes and claims to be a billionaire he must be a genius. Then there is 93 year old Jimmy Carter, who doesn’t even know what twitter is, but he is ready to match wits with 33year old Kim Jong-un.
Everyone knows Americans have never kept their word on any negotiated agreement go ahead ask the indigenous people. – @OgbeniAyotunde
It is a known fact that politicians are lairs and thieves who work hard at washing their names clean of their sins by immortalizing themselves in false legacies. Goodluck Jonathan trends with that political culture of using titles, rewards and awards as political capital. One case in point is changing the name of one of Nigeria’s prestigious universities from the University of Lagos to MKO Abiola University. This was a political gambit by the President to appease and secure the Yoruba vote ahead of the Presidential elections. Chief MKO Abiola left a legacy of corruption that jives with the President’s longstanding ideology that stealing is not corruption.
Which brings me to Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Way named after our current Minister of Finance who is immortalized in her own Way in Utako Abuja. One might ask what she has done to have her name immortalized on a Nigerian street. Well it is very simple she is the one in charge of helping the President steal public funds.
The election was postponed 6 weeks for the administration to defeat Boko Haram giving the President 6 weeks to do what he couldn’t in 6 years. A President with no military background directing a 6week asymmetric war, although we all know it is all a smokescreen to buy time to rig the elections.
Last week the President held a closed door meeting with his party (PDP) Governors (excluding the Governor of Borno State the most affected by Boko Haram) in the heels of an impending landslide loss at the polls, he begged the Governors for their assistance in winning and handed them 20billion Naira presumable to buy the peoples vote at 10,000naira a vote. How might you ask a sitting President is able to spend public funds to run his reelection campaign? The answer is in the Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Way.
American politicians immortalize thieves, pirates, slave masters and mass murderers naming their capital after Christopher Columbus a known pirate and thief now they are stuck with a history of lies. So as oppose to naming the capital the District of Harriet Tubman a woman who actually had an impact on American culture and civilization they chose a thief.
Do Goodluck Jonathan and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala know the name of the woman that sweeps her Way under the boiling sun with locally made brooms maybe she deserves to have that street named after her. The sign writer sure does not believe Ngozi deserves it because he spelt her name wrong – Ogbeni Ayotunde @ #JujuFilms
There are many young souls lost in Nigeria everyday, victims of a war no Nigerian is safe from. (Extreme Corrupt Politicians = Extreme Poverty = Extreme Violence). Nigerians should train their fury at the one person responsible for the mess Nigeria is in today. Olusegun Obasanjo has the bad habit of handing power to incredible boobs and an ego that stretches from Abeokuta to Abuja.
Olusegun Obasanjo’s handpicked contestants Shehu Shagari and Goodluck Jonathan, two people who have absolutely no business running the executive office of Nigeria. They trumpet their humble beginnings, and their virtual lack of governing experience on their resumes. This as if Goodluck Jonathan walking to school without shoes now qualifies him to run the executive office of Nigeria.
Mr. President there is still large numbers of children in Nigeria walking to school, and playing soccer without shoes. There are also hundreds of young girls kidnapped, raped, and killed in Nigerian schools everyday. You see the change in Nigeria since you were a schoolboy is that there are more boys and girls walking barefoot to school at the risk to their lives.
When Shehu Shagari became president of Nigeria, the level of corruption in government grew in gross proportions. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari briefly rescued Nigeria from the excesses of the corrupt politicians of the day.
Olusegun Obasanjo back then outsourced the pillaging of Nigeria to his crony and partner in crime MKO Abiola. For word to your ear, listen to “Beast Of No Nation” and “ITT” by the Chief Priest Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
When you walk into any establishment in America that transact in value currency there are visibly signs, warning in strict terms the consequence of robbing that establishment either by means of a gun or pen.The states and federal establishments, banks disguised as federal establishments, welfare offices, post office, prisons etc take it a step further with longer prison terms and heavy fines.
Thanking God am in Nigeria where I can safely watch politicians and police rob the people blind in peace. Where sitting President Goodluck Jonathan changes the name of one of Nigeria’s leading institutions of learning (University of Lagos) after the father of Nigerian corruption Chief MKO Abiola.
Safe bet we have an educated fool in Aso Villa. What makes Abiola a saint amongst thieves, we Nigerians hardly forgot ITT, the genesis of corruption, or the lavish lifestyles of the rich and famous. So it says a lot that Dr. Pres. Goodluck Jonathan is mindless that Nigerians even a baby born yesterday in Oja Oba, Ibadan believe Babangida, Obasanjo, Abacha, Abiola and the rest of the shadow criminals are thieves and all tapped from the same oil well. So I ask again what makes MKO Abiola a saint amongst thieves?
Dr. Pres. Goodluck Jonathan in a half baked scheme most likely half baked by Femi Otedola tries to kill two birds with the proverbial one stone, throw Nigerians off the scent of the oil subsidy money and all the crooked politicians their cronies and family carting away Nigeria’s money in the billions in Ghana Must Go bags.
So I propose we post visible signs at all our international airports, Aso Villa, and all governmental offices of the consequence of robbing the Nigerian people either by gun, pen or Ghana Must Go.
