I am not waiting for the international media BBC, CNN or Al Jazeera to validate the results of the Nigerian general elections. BBC and Al Jazeera have called this a very tight race, nothing could be further from the truth. Truth is this election for me and I believe for millions of Nigerians is about cleaning that foul stench of corruption that has stuck on Nigeria for decades.
Corruption has become a national embarrassment and Muhammadu Buhari seems to be the only guy with the record and stomach to do something about it. President Goodluck Jonathan went around the country playing word games trying to redefine the meaning of corruption while Buhari stood his ground on fighting it. You see the Yorubas say omi eko eko ni while the Americans say if it tastes like shit and smells like shit it must be shit.
Nigerians in the diaspora believe that these for profit corporate news organizations run by racist billionaires the likes of Rupert Murdoch actual give two fucks about them. These corporate pimps are only there to sensationalize and make news and what better way than to claim it is a tight race thereby leaving room for trouble. – @OgbeniAyotunde
President Goodluck Jonathan, Ayo Oritsejafor head of the Christian Association of Nigeria, National Assembly members, some governors and other government officials are in Jerusalem praying to a foreign god in a foreign land with money from the Central Bank. When has Benjamin Netanyahu or any foreign leader come to Nigeria on a pilgrimage to Olodumare? I beg I tire for these colonized shadow criminals joor. – Ogbeni Ayotunde

Before the kidnapping of 230 young girls in Nigeria hit the sensibilities of social media and the world, hundreds of girls in Nigeria some as young as 9 years old were brutalized, forcibly raped, killed, burnt to death as they slept in their school dormitories, sold into slavery, forced into marriage, and forcibly converted to Islam. These are just some of the crimes against humanity committed in the name of Islam in Nigeria by Boko Haram.
Nigeria is no different from the rest of the world drawn on very visible religious lines. It is easy to file these crimes under religious extremism without addressing the true core of the problem as Nigeria’s political system is also drawn on very visible religious lines, a byproduct of colonialism.
The poor miss-educated population who are the victims cannot question these crimes committed in the ‘name of God” for fear for their lives and family’s, you see they have no protection from either side. Be aware that a government is a mirrored reflection of the country it represents. In Nigeria we have an extremely corrupt political system that produced a mass population living in extreme poverty that breed groups like Boko Haram who are also vowing to keep the population they claim to be fighting for uneducated, miss-educated, radicalized and enslaved.
You see the Nigerian government is guilty of the same crimes we are now accusing Boko Haram of perpetrating in keeping the population they swore to represent uneducated, miss-educated and living in extreme poverty. The rest of the Nigerian population stood by and watched quietly while this manifested.
Fela Anikulapo Kuti was brutalized, imprisoned and his 78year old mother Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, a Women’s Rights activist was tossed out of a second floor window of Fela’s Kalakuta Republic premises by the Nigeria government for their activism. This while the Nigerian population also stood by and watched quietly.
What we have in Nigeria is a weak population without the power to fire the greedy oppressive government that claims to be representing them. Ms. Ebony living in Cleveland Ohio USA could never fully understand the pains of the mothers of victims of Boko Haram’s extremist dogma.
Boko Haram is a creation of the Nigerian government’s corrupt culture and any campaign for the rescue of these young girls should be directed at President Goodluck Jonathan and Nigerian lawmakers. I wonder how much more of this blood fest they can stomach. You see they pawned their souls to their gods.
Open Letter To The People of Nigeria
Through the many decades of corruption in the Nigerian government establishment there is one name that stands out in the fight against corruption. At the risk to his life he made legitimate strides against corruption in Nigeria as the chairman of the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
His career as a police officer in the Nigerian Police Force, an activist lawyer, or as Chairman of the EFCC and currently as a consultant for several NGOs is always in the service for the people.
Nuhu was part of an advisory committee to establish a corruption free Afghanistan Police Department. He has received worldwide awards and acclaim for his courage and dedication in the fight against corruption in Nigeria. I propose the Nigerian people nominate Nuhu Ribadu the National Security Chairman of Nigeria. The average Nigerian will echo the usual sentiments that the powers that be will not grant Nuhu Ribadu such powers for fear of the many skeletons in their closets. Clearly this is now the people’s fight and I believe strongly that Nuhu Ribadu is the right candidate with the right experience to fight for the people.
Let your voice be heard by making a statement.
Got to hand to President Goodluck Jonathan for a risky yet brilliant political gambit. Starting and stoking a new fire to distract public attention from an ongoing blaze. So Nigerians have a new fire to quench in gay rights. Better than sending the troops into Cameroon to take back Bakassi.
