THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN: WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Living under the authority of heaven in reality is not to be imagined, it is our enabled reality for we who live mortal lives on earth and enjoy the indwelling spirit of God. One day our physical breathe will be seized, and we will stop enjoying the physical air. we would only be able to breathe by another air, which is spiritually afforded, in the after life, after we have indeed entered into the heavenly reality by the narrow way.

“Strive to enter in by the strait gate, for MANY shall DESIRE to ENTER therein , but shall not be ABLE”. This means that entering into heaven’s reality depends on the ability of many that desire to enter, but they shall not be able. It is about personal ability, personal effort to back up the desire to enter into heaven’s reality. Jesus taught one prayer, which in part says “Our Father and n heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. And until we can access heaven, how can we know what is going on there?

The Christians on earth should indicate their representation of heaven on earth. You are here because you have an assignment to implement the will of God here on earth as it is done in heaven. God FINISHED his part of the bargain and left an ability. Strive with that ability to enter into the heaven’s reality to represent God on earth. This is the authority of Christians. God is with us, as it is for those who believe Christ.

On earth, while breathing the physical air, you are empowered already by God, through the gift of his Spirit to men through Christ, to grow in the experience of breathing the spiritual air by a mental reorientation that allows for the transformation of the human mindset into the spiritual mindset. It is about having the ability to see your nakedness and not being ashamed of it – pretences and face decoration to cover blemishes stands between you and God and caused our human departure from godliness.

If you do not get what I mean: Adam ran from God because he saw his nakedness and was ashamed of it. Who would help him if he runs from his true helper? That was how our natural mindset emerged. That s the human failure before God. Now having ran from him by nature, he has enabled us to supernaturally come, be with him, he stands at the door and knocks, awaiting your response. He is patient and loving.

You can be with God in heaven while on earth through the substantiation of your hope accordingly, and to see the evidences of what the reality of such being is, even when it is not physically possible to appreciate it. The wisdom of God is foolishness to the natural man By the knowledge of God and his Christ, you have eternal life, and eternal life is the breathing of spiritual air. You can only do this on earth by faith.

Faith is the connecting arm between the physical and the spiritual realities, through a mental workout that permits the living of the combination of both lives together, as a man on earth and as a god-man in heaven: this is easy – You come to the strait gate and knock on it, you wait on the lord until he opens unto you. Then you ask him how to find what you seek: no loitering, no perambulating, no impatience, no anxiety, just wait with focus on his sure promises. I can say this because I live in, and live by this experienxe

They that wait upon the lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like the eagles – fly effortlessly. They would neither get weary, nor would they faint. The substance for this living is evident in the word by which we hear, ask and it shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be open unto you. The scripture is the earpiece by which we hear God speaks to us: this is the simple definition of faith.

How simple it is to live in heaven now, and live your life on earth in utter ease enjoying every thing God has placed on your path in this life, without regrets and without self condemnation. Yes! The entrance exams into heaven is taken here on earth and admission into heaven is also given from where you are right now. Whosoever will…!

God bless you

THE END OF THE ROAD FOR POLITICIAN CHIBUIKE ROTIMI AMAECHI

Those who know Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi so well, as the incumbent Minister of Transportation, should please take this kind advice and a solemn warning to him: oga Amaechi, you have enjoyed so many good rides on the back of fortune to political prominence in your State, Rivers; and in Nigeria. At a point you thought you were able to stand without any support, now you have personally removed the unstable props that held you in place, saving your face politically, by supporting Senator Bukola Saraki and Oyegun’s tenure elongation, while hurriedly forming the Buhari Campaign Organization. You are not a good servant sir.

This is the political story of the man Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi:

Peter Otunaya Odili, a medical doctored and former governor of Rivers State, whom Amaechi served as a Personal Assistant in his then small private hospital along Aba Expressway in Port Harcourt, Pamo Clinics, railed road him into the politics of River State by recommending his appointment as a Special Assistant to Governor Rufus Ada George in the ill fated Third Republic. He again paid for the court victory that got him into the Rivers State House of Assembly, ending as the Speaker of the Assembly in 1999, and finally, as Odili is known for, he “donated to Nigerian Speakers of House” and propelled him to head the Forum of Speakers of Houses of Assembly in Nigeria, after Olorunimbe Mamora. Dr Peter Odili, again ensured that he was the sole candidate at the PDP governorship primaries at the Isaac Ada Boro Park in late 2006, a leap that made him Governor via a Supreme Court judgment.

Again, against all odds known in our legal history, Ezebuwon Nyesom Wike, the LGA Chairman Amaechi helped with a second term mandate in 2003 as an “Odili boy”, in appreciation of the contributions of Amaechi thus, put his life on the line, posted Amaechi into exile, and fought the battle of wits that made Amaechi governor of Rivers State in late 2007 through the courts, the second time. It is true that Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has only won one election in his life, the one Wike won for him as the Director General of his governorship campaigns in 2011: his job as Buhari’s DG in 2015 was helped by his understudying Wike’s campaign strategies of 2011. A very fortunate man indeed. So Governor Wike railed road him into Government House Port Harcourt, spending obscenely to get that mandate from the Supreme Court.

At this point, I beg to submit that it was Governor Wike who again, as Director General of Chibuike Amaechi Campaign Organization, gave him a moon slide victory in the Gubernatorial elections in 2011, demystifying the late Tonye Harry, the then doyen of Kalabari politics, in the process. I remember the address of Nyesom Wike in Harry’s home town, Degema, during the campaigns, and I knew all was not well with the then Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly.

Chibuike Amaechi’s sojourn in the APC was a trip of sympathy facilitated by 5 of his governor-colleagues from the North with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and President Buhari trailing them, and his abandonment of governance in Rivers State for his political survival at that time is one remarkable evil he forced on Rivers people. I am a very big victim of that his selfishness. We thank God that he is the Minister of Transportation today and I think God has favored his household, sacrificing the destinies of about 60 Rivers people and a few non indigenes and their families, including me, who spent and were spent to ensure he succeed with the Rivers State Scrap to Wealth project and a metal shredding plant with a capacity of shredding 1000 tons of scraps daily, and we still feel “used and dumped” by his administration.

This is just on one project he completed. I coordinated the construction of all the infrastructures and ancillary provisions upon which the Rivers State Scrap to Wealth Project was completed, facilitated and still awaiting commissioning, if it is not yet moribund. That project cost the people of Rivers State more that N3.5bn, much of which went to complete financial waste due to derelict government officials and their desire for illogical compensations. I still have records available. I know many more Rivers people that returned home frustrated because Amaechi wanted political survival in a mess he created by not being able to check Ezebuwon Nyesom Wike, a clear superior politician to him.

The RivMetal Recycling Nigeria Limited, like the monorail project remains locked up and abandonment to weather and rust, though completed and ready for shredding and the export of scraps. He used all the money meant for the commissioning of that completed project to get the position of Director Genwral of Buhari campaigns in 2015 and subsequently, a ministerial appointment. I supervised that project and I dare say we were ready for commissioning, and we needed N300m only for take off but when his suspension from the PDP was effected, he abandoned governance in Port Harcourt losing focus: he is in that same political dilemma now with the Federal Ministry of Transportation and I will not be quiet.

The Scrap to Wealth project is the only one of 3 projects completed by the Rivers State Ministry of Environment, in all 8 years of Amaechi’s administration and that is owed to my bold and tough administration of that project. It is the biggest in West Africa and has the capacity of generating jobs for youth, employment for workers and economic diversification for entrepreneurs, but it is lying waste when it should be operative and Chibuike Amaechi has moved on, denying Rivers families N300m to have cushioned lives.

I am back in my village because Wike won’t live to see Amaechi’s honour in Rivers State. Amaechi was quick to commercialize that project and in my opinion, Governor Wike thinks that was criminal. It is those who, against graft and adverse interests, made sure that project comes alive, who are now suffering severe lack and needs for livelihood, in the face of the plant lying waste in Kira near Bori. Yet things are moving on well for Chibuike Amaechi and his household. God dey! I just pray that Governor Wike will return the Hilux vehicle I used as project supervisor and with which I should be disengaged from the service of government, otherwise God will judge this injustice in the face of his car spreeing gifts to all manner of people and I now carry “banga” on my head because Wike seized my well maintained Hilux and allowed Dr Mpi, an Ikwere man like him to take it home on retiring from service.

I applied my personal wealth to keep, service, maintained, fuel and drove that vehicle on my own from June 2009 to June 2015: is that fair? I remember how Mrs Grace Charlse Granville fought to prevent my being given the vehicle, insinuating that I will run away with it into Cameroon because I am from Akwa Ibom State. I completed that project for Rivers State and left empty handed, leaving unceremoniously with Dr A Amah, a supposed Christian minister insulting me when I insisted on taking my last allowance, just N100,000 – I think his eyes were on that money. These are people who were nursed and bred in wickedness. I have a very bad recollection of Rivers men and women. I see them as very selfish, wicked and violent people – I have turned my back against them and whatever they think they have. They are a bunch of ungrateful people. – yes! I mean Rivers people: I buried my father without sympathy wish from any of those I almost died for from diabolic attacks in Ogoniland.

Chibuike Amaechi is a very arrogant, selfish and stingy man. He was made minister in the present administration and he conferred on himself the status of a “lion”. He fought almost everyone from the South South to remain “the lion”. Yet he took on a wrong man this time in Adams Aliyu Oshiomole, a clearly better man than him, who has a history of hard work as pedigree, and Amaechi’s nemesis is sure to come soon because he has lost fortune to ride on this time. The man who lost Rivers State to the opposition even with all the powers of incumbency in his pocket is incomparable to the man who took Edo State from the position of the opposition. Amaechi lost Rivers, Adam gained Edo. The “lion” is a loudmouthed self acclaim but in reality, Amaechi is a political midget who strives on luck and chance.

I wrote an article asking how Chibuike Amaechi emerged Director General of “Buhari Campaign Organization”. He walked in to see Mr President and asked for permission to start a political organization, and a politically naive President nodded: how does he think Amaechi would manage the Transportation Ministry? The presidential campaign organization of President Buhari will be formally inaugurated by the APC with Oshiomole in charge, when Mr President picks his running mate after winning his party’s presidential nomination. Nigeria operates a Presidential joint ticket. What Amaechi heads is one of the associations building up to support Mr President’s ambition. It is a crafty way of commencing the waste of resources so that at the end, should Mr President win again, he will show how much he has spent, and with that get another appointment. I doubt if he will be lucky this time around. I will check his activities.

Nigerians are wiser now, and we will not allow Chibuike Amaechi to use the resources of the Federal Ministry of Transportation and resources meant for the coastal railway to help himself with pretending to support President Buhari. He either stands as Director General of the Buhari Campaign Organization and resign from his ministerial position or he does the vice. We will not take the Buhari administration seriously if he allows his minister who is clearly a political deficit to explore his political nativity to fester his political opportunism. The duties of the Minister of Transportation is so enormous that I imagine how Amaechi hopes to run it with his pet and personified BCO project. He should resign from Buhari cabinet forthwith.

Let us review my position: Peter Odili made him Special Assistant to Ada George and Speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly effortlessly. Nyesom Wike made him governor of Rivers State two times and his governors colleagues helped him to get to where he is today. I am not sure that Amaechi is as politically tested as Nyesom Wike as long as Rivers State is concern. How can he claim to be “the lion of the Niger Delta when only Edo State is APC in the region, and that State is in the grips of Adams Oshiomole? Amaechi is such a loud mouth and very naive.

Wike is one politician who gets whatever he sets before him. Amaechi lost his hold on Rivers State and her politics when he recommended Wike to Jonathan and insisted that he be made a minister just to send him out of Port Harcourt, instead of sending him packing from Government House Port Harcourt and returning him home tobroost. Even at home, Amaechi would have found Wike tough to deal with in Port Harcourt. How can Amaechi sell Buhari to Nigerians when he has not been able to sell him to the Rivers people he governed for 8 years? It can only result to more deaths in Rivers State. This must stop.

It is pay back time for Amaechi as it is pertinent that Magnus Ngei Abe would be favoured to handled the structure of the APC in Rivers State. I would want to see Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, a man I supported against my oga Kingsley Ogundu Chinda (unfortunately, the initiator and mover of President Buhari’s impeachment motion in the House of Representatives), an erstwhile commissioner in Rivers Star and a two term member of the House of Reps, kiss the dust of Rivers State and retire home. I gave my supoort because Amaechi was an incumbent governor and I was serving him: I now found my support to be a very big mistake. But how could I have abandoned a project under my command because he who appointed me wanted me to frustrate it? It was about my name and I am happy I completed it, no matter the cost to my present livelihood. I will rise again because I am not an opportunist.

Tell CRA to get his bag ready to return to the political dust of Rivers State. We will not accept his holding onto his ministerial portfolio while festering his political nest and cleverly opposing Mr President in his bid to return to the presidency by his support for Bukola Saraki and John Oyegun. President Buhari will win the 2019 elections without Chibuike Amaechi. Magnus Abe can make more serious and safe impact on Rivers State, in my own opinion, than Chibuike Amaechi. Let Nigerians insist on President Buhari stopping the protracted bloodshed in Rivers State and stop encouraging Amaechi to play his “do or die” politics there. He is childish and unseasoned for decent democratic participation.

A LETTER TO MUHAMMADU BUHARI, THE PRESIDENT, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA: THE 4TH EPISTLE

Dear President Buhari,

I call this letter my 4th Epistle to you because I have written 3 others before now upon my official letterhead as Citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I count on the Almighty God, who himself delegated me as an “Interventionist”, prepared by him to actualize his “WILL” in Nigeria in furtherance of how Jesus taught us to pray-get opportunities: “your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven”, to get my letters to you however.

In those letters, I accepted to replace you as Nigeria’s Interventionist President, in case you will complete your race as President very badly through bad choices you would presently make. Mr President, the possibility of your administration ending in anarchy is very clear for political weather watchers to see. One bad move of yours will take Nigeria into anarchy.

In my passion to vacate my divine assignment, I went as far as revealing how possible it is for you to suspend your presidency and all other democratic structures, employing the regimental powers of the Commander in Chief to oversee national affairs with the police and military commands assisting with law and order. This is to help you arrest the current political slide that your reluctance to assume the national leadership of the APC engendered, and is now attempting to force undemocratic responsibility on you, and to bring political rascals, who have held Nigeria down through political satanism, criminality via political violence, prostitution and cultism, to book without blinking an eye.

Mr President, let me assure you that these men I am talking about are all political cowards, none of them can stick their neck out to die for Nigeria, like I am calling you now to do, and as it is for me who is asking you to dismantle democracy if it actually comes to that. If you cannot actualize your responsibility before God, Mr President, I am standing by to take over from you: I know what to do.

These were the thrust of my first 3 Epistles to you using the Office of the Citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I again commend you for rejecting the tenure elongation gamble of the APC NEC. It is a disgrace that those who appear on international television as men who have popular supports at home are seeking undemocratic ways, manners and methods to perpetuate themselves in their indolence, popular self indulgences, block headedness and their very offensive arrogance.

Mr President, let me remind you that you were derelict of not measuring out good passion for your responsibility to the welfare of Nigerians when you took off to London after setting a date for the inauguration of the national assembly you are now working with, at a time two members of the present ruling party were obviously proving to be clearly above the ruling party. You returned on the dawn of that day and went to sleep.

Who does that as a President, Mr President?

You left this country at that juncture and refused to give your party chairman clear instructions on the matter of who you want to work with as Senate President and Speaker of the House of Reps – democracy is about good relationships sir, it is about productive dialogues, its about sound negotiations, its about giving more and taking less, through majority decisions. But you looked away even when it was clear that your partner in the success of your presidency was struggling to keep the kind of order, in the party, which won the presidency for you, and this also after returning to hear that in attempting to do your duties of arresting a malfunction when you were not around, a stubborn Senator-elect called your Vice President a “mere Commissioner” and went on before your eyes to assume the leadership of the national assembly.

This picture of you was bad Mr President, I should ask you how you find work with the legislative arm of your government? Whatever and however it is…it is all your fault – your senate president sneaked into the premises of the national assembly in dark hours, and this after the 7th Assembly had been wound: that was criminal. He sneaked into a small car to complete his sleep and woke up at 10am to become our senate president: that was rascally – I wish for another please!. You were clearly derelict sir.

You forgot that you became president because one man held your hand tightly and led you on into the Aso Rock villa. You missed the first opportunity he offered you in 2010 by clearly rejecting him, and see how badly you have treated him when you later followed him and he brought you to presidential success. How could you abandon such a man Mr President? That was how your open national failure began. And I am waiting for you to fail at this final opportunity you have, by not taking your derailed ruling party, the APC, with the force of the military, and by that I will realize how you are a political opportunist, a trust killer, and an ungrateful man.

Its either the APC NEC hears you on the grounds of democratic good governance within the party, honour the purpose for your setting up of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu reconciliation committee, than attempt to downgrade it, or you leave the APC for them and their bad democratic manners. It was important for you to have a reconciliation before party activities begin. Why the sudden surge of activities since your setting up of that committee – political witchcraft and wizardry?

You can trust Asiwaju Bola Tinubu blindly Mr President. He is the only Nigerian politician who has proved to make you eat back your words. He brought you from political retirement and made you sit as President over us. He can make you president again on any platform other than the APC. Nevertheless, you can take APC by force. In any battle people die.

How would it seem for a military admiral to abandon the ship he built, captains, and which he has used in achieving combated victory Mr President? I know what a military man like you, Olusegun Obasanjo, would do. You are allowed to deny this truth Mr President: people usually choose to live in self denial. And it would be the most unforgivable and a very disgusting thing for you to set the Asiwaju up as Chairman of the APC reconciliation team and watch that baby you brought to life get strangulated and suffocated because old men who should die honourably are allowed to eat up good destinies in babies born, through witchcraft and wizardry because they desire self perpetuation.

If you allow any party activity to hold before the Asiwaju Committee is allowed to do its job Mr President, then you have failed in leading the APC aright: you have already appeared as a guided man, a man who is made a robot by a seeming “cabal in the presidency” that is working with the senate leadership and the ruling party to destabilize and demobilize your administrative advance.

Mr President, do not believe the lie that this is all about Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. A mistake has clearly been made by you and the Asiwaju was “cut to size” in the APC, nobody needs his contributions in the party any more: so this is not about him. So do not believe that their present struggle is about Tinubu. Tinubu is a very important arm you have to use in redeeming your patronage within the APC and what you must realize is that the APC NEC is only interested in demobilizing that important arm you have.

This is about you and your bid to seek the presidency the second time. What you must do in a hurry is to reject the convention committee set up by the party imposingly on you by insisting that your “Asiwaju committee” came first, and must be allowed to accomplish its task and make reports available. Also reject the time table scheduling activities for congresses at all level and the national convention. Bola Tinubu is down already, what is next is to bring you down too. The only way to redeem your honour right away Mr President and choose for yourself those you think you can trust to join you in mapping the way of your successful return to the Aso Rock villa is to allow the Asiwaju committee finish the reconciliation in the APC before any activity is carried out.

Your second opportunity will bring out the best in you. First remember to start from where you began to be controlled through political satanism: there was a good spiritual reason why Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was rejected as your running mate in 2015. It was more than the Muslim/Muslim ticket – it was the exercise of the power of darkness over the will of the Almighty God to truncate the righting of the injustice meted to the victory of the Muslim/Muslim ticket in the aborted June 12 electoral milestone. A beacon sustaining the politics of our present democracy.

It was not about the victory of the South West in the June 12 Presidential election alone, it is also about the victory of two Muslim men having the special opportunity to rule Nigeria at the level of the presidency. Am I lying Mr President?

Next time when they bring any rumours about Bola Tinubu to you, ask: how true it is, and be careful if you are told “Sir, we heard that…”. Ask them how good the rumour is about Bola, and be careful when you are told “well sir…”. Then ask them of what good benefit do they think the rumour is to you, and be careful when you are told “well sir…”. Return to that point where you nominated Bola Ahmed Tinubu as your running mate and let the heavens fall before our very eyes. We would have won over the people who attempted to build a tower to heaven. Instead of going up there to heaven, let us bring the heavens down to us and break an almost eternal record of a daring people in Babel.

Mr President, the national leadership of the APC should be handled by courageous men. You have been politically naive and Nigeria is in hunger and great pain because of this. You must do whatever it takes to institutionalized Section 16 (2) (c and d) of our constitution by allocating 30% of our national budget to all Nigerians, as welfare, beneficial to all citizens, and government can use the balance 70% of the budget to service capital and recurrent expenditure heads of government. It is a major economic cancer eating up our national polity for 20% of our national population to be services with 70% of our annual national budget. This is unacceptable.

We can only get there by investment. So Mr President, it is time to drop the Professor, Yemi Osinbajo, he is a good man but lacks political following, respect and loyalty, and take up the Investor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as Vice President come 2019. Mr President, the Chinese nation was down with poverty and squalor some years back until their present leader invested and bought off the majority shares in General Electric (GE). Today, the Chinese government has taken over the patronages of most Third World countries, exporting science, engineering, and information technology at very affordable price: they are now a First World country from Third World. The black world is awaiting for you Mr President, to play your big brotherly role appropriately to take us near that mark by the Year 2023 when you would be ending your second term as the redemptive president of Nigeria.

Mr President, I think you owe our illiterate youths in Nigeria a very big apology. You actually meant to say that literate youths have no opportunities, than saying they are lazy, in Nigeria. Mr President, they are our illiterate youths who run after vehicles on our highways selling the needs of commuters held up for hours in traffic due to bad and narrow roads, and sometimes held up by the bad civil characterization of our policemen and women. Some of our illiterate youths comb garbage sites for recyclable materials for skills exertion but none of them is conscious enough to understand the politics of “oil money”, least, “eye” it Mr President.

You lied Mr President. Please mind who you listen to and take out to international events. They are misleading you about the home front. It is sad when you see how busy our illiterate youths are. They are busier than members of your federal cabinet Mr President, better still, they are busier than members of the national assembly, some of whom are seen dozing during plenaries on international television. Mr President, if you afford me the opportunity, I will use the story of my life to paint the picture of how and what makes it that it is our literate youths, more than the illiterate ones, that are “lazy” and eyeing “oil money”. For this Mr President, you ought to apologize to illiterate Nigerian youths for lying on them.

Finally Mr President, permit me to remind you that in the face of the demand of the APC NEC for tenure elongation for the NWC shortly after your setting up the Asiwaju Committee, saying it will not augur well for the party to conduct an elective convention in the face of the approaching general elections, and their attempt to conduct the same elective convention after judging it impossible and rancorous, it is clear how they are discredited, first by your rejection of their first move to supplant your Asiwaju Committee, now you are left with discrediting them again by your rejection of their attempt to conduct the same exercise they adjudged impossible to conduct. They MUST not be allowed to speak from both sides of their mouths.

It is suspect for this same people to go ahead to populate the organizers of their “convention” with the same people who colluded with them and front lined the impossibility of an elective convention. In sane climes, after your rejection of the tenure elongation plan, they would have resigned in mass, freeing the party of their bad influence, but no! None of them can live outside party politics, so they will insist on perpetuating themselves through spiritual wickedness. I pray you are not hypnotized through diabolism Mr President. You will fail, believe me!

Please Mr President, take the APC by military force, and if you cannot, let the APC NEC have their party. You can either ask Asiwaju to study the possibility of your seeking to fly the flag of the SDP or better still the Better Nigeria Peoples Party where Professor Nnaji is Protem National Chairman and my humble self the Protem National Organizing Secretary, but in Akwa Ibom State, I have chosen to work with the APC because BNPP is insignificant here. I am doing so under the Inter Party Advisory Council understanding in the State. So I am a contributor to the APC’s successes in Akwa Ibom State, a present member of the Buhari Campaign Organisation in Nsit Atai LGA of the State and looking forward to a merger for the 2019 general elections with the APC in the State, So Mr.President, the BNPP is an available and free platform for you to run for the presidency in 2019.

Most importantly, resist anyone cutting off your political arm for any reason. Let the Asiwaju committee prepare the maternity where those who will lead you into your 2019 election successfully will be born and grow to help you win your second term bid. If you allow the present naked dance of Oyegun, Sons and Daughters Limited to get away with scheming their return through the back door, you will find it very difficult to enjoy Bola Tinubu’s support and mine too. You know what that means? You would have failed as President, failed as Commander in Chief and failed in your reelection bid. You will return in big shame and a great lose.

This is the words I have from the lord God Almighty for you Mr President: vacate the restitution of the political robbery of the Muslim/Muslim ticket of June 12 like that of the South West presidency was vacated with the Obasanjo administration. Forget what church leaders tell their congregations. A lot of them fear to go out on election days. It is an attitudinal problem. They are all empty barrels. Stick with Bola Tinubu. Reject everything Oyegun and the APC governors. Remember, APC is about President Buhari: if you are not there, APC is nothing, and if Bola Tinubu is not with you, Mr President, your largeness in APC will collapse. Take a good breath Mr President, hold it, release it slowly…yeah!

Now go out there and reject the convention time table and the convention committee list. Heaven will not fall.

Thank you Mr President

I remain

REDEEMING THE TIME: NIGERIA NEEDS A MUSLIM/MUSLIM TICKET FOR THE 2019 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

Oyegun had no business with leading the APC after 9 June 2015. Saraki and Dogara, with the help of Atiku doused Oyegun with…whatever and assured him of “cutting Tinubu to size” and muzzling Pesldent Buhari into ineffectiveness and throw Nigerians against both men: Oyegun and Saraki are trying out, for the last time, what the entire PDP could not use AIT media to do – to stop President Buhari via Bola Tinubu – targeting their divine appointment. The Saraki team were sure that Buhari was politically naive: for these men, Buhari should not be President at all.

This was why they mobilized as nPDP (how many were they after all and what was their political worth as at then?) and made inroads into the APC: they were sure Muhammadu Buhari would win the 2015 elections – having trained their political nostrils to smell political victory from afar off. These men joined the APC to stop both Buhari and Tinubu from becoming President and Vice President at the appointed instance, but God never gives up on his plans for nations of the earth. They were sure APC would win because God ordered a “change” and it came to pass. I will lead us on to the truth in this essay.

I tell you Nigerians, looking at our present time, and how the devil has made it impossible by the kind of politics we are now made to experience, making it seemingly impossible for many Nigerians to accept a “Muslim/Muslim ticket” at the level of the presidential election, because of the lying campaign tagging President Buhari with an agenda to “islamize Nigeria”, and the trending “Fulani herdsmen” killing, is not helping the argument, especially with the politics in some presumed acceptance of responsibility for this menace by some members of the “Miyerti Allah” group.

The other day, an Identity card was planted of a man our security agencies still have not been able to tell us anything about. In Nigeria, we know that our International Passport made in Oluwole in Lagos beats international security agents everywhere around the world because it is ours, and you think an ID card cannot be made and planted to score a political point in Benue? I am not naive. Nigeria is my country and I know what we are capable of.

In Nigeria, ordinary Nigerians worship their pastors and lay down their lives for politicians: Bob Nesta Marley and Jimmy Cliff had both warned mankind about “following” heads of churches and politicians in “tell the children the truth” and “Bongo man has come”. My greatest disappointment is in the fact that the Christian community in Nigeria are more spiritually naive than President Buhari is politically. I was asked this morning through social media to put salt in my mouth and pray that the people behind “herdsmen killings” should die. Why should I put salt in your mouth to become the “salt of the earth”? A respectable Christian sister sent that to me. They wallow in carnality but are the first to tell you “carnal mindedness is death”. They are people clearly prepared by their “masters” to be the contents of mental slavery.

As much as it seems impossible to see Nigerians massively support a “Muslim/Muslim ticket” at this time like it was in the “Abiola/Kingibe ticket” of June 12 1993, it is a matter meant to seriously address the injustice trailing the 2nd arm of the “June 12” imbroglio, having to do with the “Muslim/Muslim ticket” in that aborted victory. It is a spirit now hanging over our polity seeking justice.

Hear me well Nigerians every where, let us follow after truth where we can find and appreciate him; we cannot deny that the entire politics of the 4th Republic was based on compensating for the sabotage of the victory of the South West at the level of the Presidency, not only this, it also scuttled the opportunity God provided us to test the will of Muslins in this country, especially those who think we should all be Muslims in Nigeria. It is not possible for me to be a Muslim: this is the truth.

I am fully persuaded by the words, works, walk and life of Jesus Christ, and he left me no instruction about Prophet Mohammed PBUH, but I live in the experience of the Holy Ghost he promised to send after him, for my comfort, and this is my present reality. If a Boko Haram child can commit suicide for what he or she believes, I will surrender to death because of believing Jesus. Not only because of believing him, but also in vacating the instruction I receive from him.

I have received the instruction to preach the “Muslim/Muslim ticket” for our 2019 presidential election, and to show how it is a divine will, in spite of what heads of churches teach, which is believed – that our Muslim brothers and sisters are enemies. If they teach division as a doctrine from God, ask them how they hope to evangelize the Muslim world. Or maybe Christ did not die for them too – its just the appalling height of mental stupidity.

I recently tied my life to the political progress of Nigeria and I have called President Buhari to dismantle all democratic structures, suspend his presidency, and rule regimentally for a brief period as our Commander in Chief, if the national assembly members try to change the sequences of elections – it is the opposite end of the tenure elongation bid of the APC NWC.

If the national assembly is allowed to override President Buhari’s veto any day and nothing happens, the next thing they would do is to attempt impeaching Mr President. The amendment to the electoral law is sort of troubleshooting to test the grounds, on the basis of the majority support of members against the personality of Mr President, for his impeachment. Everything is done to stop Buhari and to ensure Tinubu stays down politically: this is to ensure the constancy of their ripoff of the Nigerian state and people. This is the power play of the rulers of the darkness presently holding Nigeria down.

I tell you brothers and sisters, be reminded that our present politics, the politics of the 4th Republic, is framed after, and by the compensations needed to right the injustices of the June 12 1993 daylight robbery of the victory secured by the “Abiola/Kingibe ticket” in what has been adjudged the “freest, fairest…” and the most acceptable election in our country. That election gave the south west a very just presidential leap to Aso Rock and ensured Nigeria was set up to experience leadership at the apex by two Muslim men. Are we attempting to remove what the will of God was in that election he so permitted to change our political story for good. Now, if we think it was just to settle the south west for the Abiola presidency, what is wrong in satisfying the injustice done to the opportunity we have at having two Muslim men lead this country.

I love daring brothers and sister, especially when I clearly hear what no other man has heard. The Nigerian political class are clearly divided between those who understand politics and governance, and those who are only good in politics but have nothing to show in governance. While the Lagos State government is setting the pace in the politics of development that clearly promotes the continuity of a long term plan. Only one politician in Nigeria is still following his dream through and through: he is identified with the advance in Lagos State. No one drags Lagos State with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

He is a man of value Nigeria needs in a hurry. We need the steel in Buhari and the investment intelligence of the Jagaban Borgu. It is easy to marvel at the man’s wealth. I tell you people, there are people who make money but do not know how to use it and there are people who know what to do with money when they see it. Nobody should blame Bola Tinubu for been an intelligent investor. Yes he owns Lagos and all the companies…and you have the courts in which you can question his wealth. Daar Communications, owners of AIT tried but they begged him in the end. To God be the glory.

Tell Sowore to go and sit down, governing Nigeria is not like publishing gossips. We are in need of political re-engineering and governance on the present platform will overwhelm him. There is a score of injustice to settle by our political class, and a sore fear to overcome by our Christian communities, who think they are only waking up from an “Abiola/Kingibe” nightmare: God is still saying something. He is a just God.

Now is it fair that after all that Abacha did to us politically, and made the struggle to keep “June 12” as a political spirit by the south west intensive, I particularly commend the efforts of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu during that era. We must not forget that Pa Rewane died fighting to right the injustice of the “June 12”, he was from the Niger Delta, Kudirat died standing by her husband’s mandate. Abiola himself died holding strong to his mandate. Let us not forget “Radio Kudirat” and the role that medium played to drum up international support to question the same injustice under reference. There were men and women who played great roles to ensure that the 4th Republic compensates for the June 12 political misery.

Let me remind us, beginning from the process that led to the outcome of the June 12 1993 victory: it started with the “old breed/new breed” dichotomy. That dichotomy robbed Shehu Musa Yar’Adua of his seamless match into Aso Rock and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of his ascension to the seat of the senate president. Bola Tinubu stepped down his aspiration to allow for Abiola’s emergence as Presidential candidate of the SDP on Yar’Adua’s instruction.

It was the same Bola Tinubu that lead the campaigns to sustain the June 12 1993 struggle, toeing the footsteps of the revered and undisputed political leader of the Yorubas, Chief Obafemi Jeremiah Awolowo, going a step ahead by bringing the entire north and south west together to win a major political victory. This is not a mean feat, how many politicians in Nigeria can dream such a dream? They are all cowards on parade.

His self sacrificial nature also cost Bola Tinubu his privilege of assuming the office of the Vice President in the incumbent administration, when Muslims like Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Atiku Abubakar, Bukola Saraki rose against a “Muslim/Muslim ticket” and tried to call our history a lie because their fear of a “Buhari/Tinubu ticket” was to prevent the disbanding of their coven of political witchcraft: the powers of darkness at play. So Bola Tinubu is unarguably the most vibrant, intelligent, confident, self sustained and self sacrificial Nigerian politician of our time, who President Buhari needs to shop for, to support the next advance he needs to make for Nigeria and Nigerians. People like Tinubu are not readily loved by those who love people who are dependent on them. Bola Tinubu leans on no Nigerian politician.

He was the second largest sponsor of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) before he held any political office: he voluntarily retired from heading the Audit department of a multinational offshore oil conglomerate. He personally sponsored a sustained campaign to keep the “June 12” spirit alive and demanding justice until we had the 4th Republic: he did this after spending only 3 months as a senator of the federal republic, earning N15,000/monthly – Tinubu has always been a very brilliant investor. Again, no Nigerian politician has contributed immensely to our political party development in Nigeria like the Asiwaju.

He is rich no doubt and that is because he is intelligent. Many Nigerian billionaires made their monies through round tripping of our foreign exchange during the Babangida and Abacha era, at this time, Tinubu was on self exile. Don’t call him a thief because he was governor of Lagos State, otherwise let the CBN publish all the waivers on our foreign exchange granted to Aliko Dangote’s companies. Many of our moneybags milked Nigerians to get to where they are today, forget their stories, they just must tell us something nice about themselves, but we know when we started gearing about them. Was not Otunba Mike Adenuga, owner of Globacom the failed Managing Director of DEVCOM Bank who disappeared into the thin air when the bank went under?.

The road forward for the APC, as it stands, is for the Oyegun committee to resign, allow Bola Tinubu to begin the reconciliation of party members and a convention planning committee set up to draw up events that should lead to the national convention of a he party on June 30 2018: we must advance what the nPDP intruders truncated. The legacy parties that made up the APC before their intrusion, had accepted President Buhari and Vice President Tinubu, two leaders to whose leadership they still submit. The Saeaki calculations was for him to run for presidency on a “Saraki/Oyegun ticket”: and Oyegun was already assuming the office of the Vice President imaginarily each night when he is in bed with his wife – a couple likely worst than the Jonathans. And I pray this political reengineering will position the APC appropriately in Akwa Ibom State to take power from the present lipstick painting government of Udom Emmanuel. Deliver us from all evil O! Lord, Amen.

RANDOM MUSING: THE DIGITALIZATION OF DIABOLISM AND THE NIGERIAN POLITICS

I think our ancestors have chosen to digitalize their methodologies in dealing with the living. Ancestry is tradition, but I have never tried to associate tradition with modernity until my big brother, and an erstwhile political office holder in my LGA visited me at home in furtherance of his Easter goodwill to my family. What I clearly retrieved from his alarming story showed how tools of tradition, having to do with diabolical practices, used as evil appliances in hunting down the living by the living, is now digitalized. My brother politician lives a few blocks away from me. He is my kinsman and as he said, a leading member of the Buhari Campaign Organisation in Akwa Ibom State:

I wondered how this claim came about, same way as I wondered Chibuike Amaechi’s rumored appointment as Campaign DG of the said organisation. Why should it be “Buhari Presidential Campaign Organization”? Our democracy permits a “joint ticket” for our presidential election. And appointment into a political party organization is not usually individualized or apportioned. Campaigns are matters of a political party, it is the flag given in election that gives legitimacy to every candidate representing the party in the election, and not the intent of Mr President or the presidency especially and as it is in this case – too many things happen behind President Buhari’s back: truth be told.

My first surprise at this, is that nobody has yet denied the rumor of Amaechi’s appointment thus. I have now revealed it to pressmen, an helpless issue they should raise with the presidency, as to why a political campaign appointment should be made when he is yet to declare his intention to rerun for the presidency. The question is: has Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi been appointed the Director General of the “Buhari Presidential Campaign Organization”? Or is it a mistake of nomenclature. Nigerians need to know if Buhari will fly his party’s flag with Osinbajo or if he would return to demand for who he demanded for in the first place in 2015? I think Mr President should dare Nigerians with considering Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as his running mate for the 2019 presidential election: many would wonder my position. Mine is purely from hindsight, insight and foresight.

I will take you on a little spiritual trip into our far past. We will take aspects of the injustices meted on the total story of the June 12 1993 Presidential election. Oh! How I love to dare! I dare Mr President to dare Nigerians by reinforcing the believe that he has an “agenda” to “Islamize Nigeria” and prove how innocent he is of the accusation after he has secured victory on a “Muslim/Muslim ticket” with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. OH! How I love to dare but I wish President Buhari can also dare like me.

I am a Christian brothers and sister, and I am sincere about my position that Nigeria should understand why we must attract to our polity the “Muslim/Muslim ticket” for national restitution. It was for me to come to this call that I pleaded with President Buhari, in three open letters to him, asking him to “Sit Up Or Resign…”, demanding two things from him: the rejection of tenure elongation for APC working committees across board, and the suspension of all democratic structures using the powers of the CinC should the national assembly attempt to override his rejection of the amendment bill of the electoral law to suit Saraki’s fancy, or let the senate explain the national interest they are trying to defend with sequences of elections, when they are the direct beneficiaries of our elections. They have no shame and for these bunch of people, we do not need a “foolish” democracy.

I tied my life to the political progress of Nigeria because I knew that President Buhari would have finally nailed Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Nigeria’s political cross for our Easter sacrifice needlessly, because there is one sacrifice that speaks better things, and we would have lost another opportunity we have for national redemption and sociopolitical restitution for our nation’s divine cleansing from past political inconsistencies, if he had allowed the elongation of tenure for the present APC NWC members, a very derelict bunch of political opportunists.

APC NEC consists of the President, Vice President, SGF (from the presidency), principal officers of both houses of the national assembly, state governors, the members of the NWC and the chairmen of state working committees. All of them are direct beneficiaries of the tenure elongation because even with the crisis in all state branches of the party because they are derelict in service, they deviced a highway for self benefit in the face of their lack of merit in the opportunities they are presently enjoying. Only people who have performed are encouraged to carry on. We cannot carry on with failure like Obasanjo has posited. The APC NWC and the 8th National Assembly are the clear failures of this administration, which has rubbed off on President Buhari and his cabinet.

I love godliness and I love Truth when I have him clearly. The injustice of the June 12 1993 Presidential election did not only rob the South West of the Abiola Presidency, we thank God that injustice was remedied by the failed Obasanjo administration, which mismanaged 8 years of national prosperity, promoted other failed administrations after him, and if it was just and fair for the South West to be accorded, and have enjoyed compensation on the basis of the June 12 annulment, permitting the zoning of the Presidency by all political parties to the South West, at that time, allowing only presidential candidates from the zone to contest in the first presidential election, after the June 12 annulment, in the 4th Republicans, then it should be just and fair to finish with the second arm of that injustice too: justice is served with two arms – one with the sword and the other with the balance.

The injustice of the June 12 1993 aborted presidential victory has not been fully remedied, as its justice has only been served by the arm bearing the sword, because of the national harm inherent in not granting it, yet, the arm that holds the balance must also of necessity be balanced to complete the remediation of the June 12 1993 injustice. it must be made clear that an important issue of that injustice is still left unattended to, and this is because Nigeria’s Holocaust is made ready already and Nigeria’s disintegration is ticking and our nation can become a foregone conclusion as in “there was a country”. What we fear limits our advance. Israel was constituted appropriately after 480 years of slavery: Israel today, experientially, stands alone against the world.

It was for this reason that I insisted on mentioning that if Buhari allows tenure elongation, he would lose the 2019 election and throw Nigeria into crisis, a crisis which God Almighty will step into and appoint death to sit on the Seat of the President and dare anyone to go sit on it. This will ensue the ascension of an Interventionist President for Nigeria. As an ambassador of the Kingdom of God on earth, I dare say that the Almighty God is not happy with Nigerians for allowing spiritual beasts to continue to lead decent, and sound minded people he has appointed to glorify him on this land. Or does God not deserve his glory in Nigeria?

I dare say that President Buhari’s attitude towards his political party from the onset has caused Oyegun to wallow in self conceit and political delusion, and until Mr President can redeem himself, Oyegun will be his nemesis, as he was for him in the ANPP where he was also Mr President’s party chairman.

The personalization of political party participation in the campaign process prior to an election was what happened to Jonathan and was a major reason for Jonathan’s lost of the 2015 Presidential election. His wife, Patience, contributed more than 35% affirmation to his lost of that election by her public parades, overtaking the leaders of the PDP. 35% affirmation is usually left for women participation and Patience used it all up for herself alone bringing her husband down with the burden therein. This one that Amaechi left Buhari’s office and said he was made DG of BCO…ehhnnnn!

President Buhari must reinvent the APC and make it a strong platform for him to stand at campaigns and to prepare a platform for him to succeed at the 2019 presidential elections. Nevertheless, President Buhari has done well in annulling the tenure elongation bid, a bid like Obasanjo’s “third term” bid. Truly Obasanjo is evil just like Babangida, but while Babangida is a “genius”, Obasanjo is a true Yoruba man – he loves noise making and “ejo ejumi sile…oooo!” (Ooo! Leave me to fight)

These were my thoughts when my brother politician and a local stalwart of the APC sat at talk with me on my verandah on Easter Monday. I was surprised that he was unawares of my position on the tenure elongation issue, but while he is expecting congresses to be held based on a released timetable, I told him to discard the matter as Mr President had already appointed a “reconciliation committee” that must be allowed to complete the assigned work.

He opened up on why he wanted the present hierarchy of the APC to continue and was elated that this coming Saturday will be Ward Congresses across the country, where he hopes the party would return all the incumbent ward executives and follow, thus, through all other congresses and to the national convention, hoping to represent the same people whose tenure elongation bid we have rejected: bringing them in through the back door and wasting money and time thereby, just to sabotage the “Asiwaju committee”. I said to myself “see political diabolism!”. Mr President’s integrity is at stake; the “Asiwaju Committee” is his creation and has work to do: the present APC NWC and working committees across board, must freely go on 30 June 2018.

Would anyone take Oyegun’s NWC released timetable for congresses and convention seriously? Has Oyegun forgotten that Mr President himself set up a reconciliation committee that he thinks should prepare the party for the congresses and convention? Is it not now clear that Oyegun is attempting to sabotage Mr President’s desire to activate the APC’s strength to win the 2019 Presidential election? I will come back to this. Let me stay on the subject matter briefly: ancestors and the digitalization of diabolism.

My brother politician’s story was: “my brother, please be careful these days when.you receive calls on your mobile telephone. Things are happening these days. Anytime you receive a call from now on, do not be quick to answer ‘hello’. People now use phone calls to eliminate their enemies. As you answer and say ‘hello’, you are cut off from the other end, and you just die at this end. If you have a call, cut it and call the person back (gwanjo: who get that kaien money?), and you can avoid trouble”. “Wow!” I said to myself “diabolism is now digitalized”. Our ancestors are now using the global system for mobile (GSM) their own way and touching us as in a telephone conversation. “Wonders…” is just beginning, and “…shall never end”. I have had stories of voice calls from 5 digit numbers that if you pick, you die instantly.

I have experienced an embarrassing moment when I received a link from a very respected Christian brother and I thought he has gotten his own N3,000 worth of airtime and wanted me to join in on the MTN anniversary bonanza. I sent that nonsense to 30 of my contacts and felt bad when I realized I was one of his own 30. I wished I could pull them back but I was already embarrassed for seeking free N3,000 airtime before 30 friends: amem? (is it easy?). Another digital diabolism. That one caught me hands down. But brothers and sisters, I won’t die from answering calls ooo! I no be fowl.

Now let us look at our sociopolitical troubles as Nigeria: if you look at the matter closely, you will see it like my friend Arc Mfon Akpabio saw it recently. He busted out: “corruption! Corruption!! Corruption!!!, we are tired of hearing of PDP’s 16 years of corruption. We now want roads, food, hospitals etc”. And believe me he was right. I said it in my epistles to Mr President and showed him how he was standing on one leg when he is provided with three.

He lost the APC, his third leg to Oyegun when he overlooked the rascality of Saraki and Dogara: two lawmakers-elect who claimed “separation of powers” before they were so empowered, two people who were clearly bigger than the APC before they were inaugurated as lawmakers; and Mr President lost the national assembly to Saraki, who, in the face of an “hypnotized” President, sneaked onto the national assembly grounds at dawn, and like a rogue, entered into a small car, hiding therein for more than 3 hours, just to become senate president – is Nigeria that cheap? God forbid that I should respect such a man as my senate president. I would rather have an “akop usem ebot” (our Akwa Ibom native goat). I know a thing about his father when he was senate leader under Joseph Wayas. He is a true son of his father indeed.

Our politicians have all not been able to distinguish between “politics” and “governance”. Now let me afford some education, par adventure this one cry from me would get into their “greasy heads”. Now get this and say after me “politics is the given process in a polity whereby an adult can express his aspiration to lead his people politically; and governance is what the people benefit from, when political aspiration to leadership has been fulfilled and given”. Nigerians are yet to see any benefits from the Buhari administration, though he has done well. Politics is the process of seeking political power and governance is what is done with the political power when given. In Nigeria politics is the main stay and governance is by digital diabolism.

In the Buhari administration, only the executive arm of government attempts governance, and since it takes the representatives of the people to get these governance to the people using the laws they make as vehicles, what is happening to us as a people is the lack of functional vehicles to convey the dividends of good governance this administration has created. Otherwise, why are INEC RECs who should be preparing for next year’s election not yet confirmed by the senate? They are seeking money from President Buhari before they can do so. Self makers, not lawmakers. How then can the Buhari administration transport good governance without the laws to wheel them to the people?

The national assembly in conjunction with the APC leadership targeted two people for political “elimination” – “cutting down” – President Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. First they scuttled the opportunity at righting the injustice done against the “Muslim/Muslim ticket” of June 12 1993 by scuttling Tinubu’s Vice Presidential bid and to terminate his relevance in the APC: they thought they had succeeded but now they know better. The next to be cut down would have been President Buhari at the dawn of the 2019 Presidential elections, paving the way for Bukola Saraki to sleep in small cars and become our President. God forbid it. Instead of Bukola Saraki to be Nigeria’s President, death will seat as President over Nigeria. Let’s wait and see!

It is now urgent, incumbent and almost belated on Mr President to hurry the Asiwaju committee up and give them until mid May to submit their report and to set up the convention planning committee to handle the intended Congresses and the national convention. The credibility of the present APC NWC is dysfunctional and cannot be trusted to deliver necessary party events. I saw through Oyegun since June 2015 and I’ll publish my article on him as at then, very soon. We do not need Oyegun, and we do not need Saraki: they are both the demons that have blocked Nigeria’s progress in the last 3 years. We do not need political opportunists and nomads, anymore, in our polity – bloodsuckers!

Thank you folks

THE DIFFERRENTIALS: KEEPING IT REAL WITH FAITH AND NATIONALISM.

I will be relating to a situation where people actually ascribe to thinking for other people and always expect that other people should see as they see. Well, I developed my self consciousness to a level of pinning down everything that reaches me and I take my time to filter them before I ignite the mechanism in me that moves the engine of my persuasive mindset in order to ensure I “err on the side of caution”, if I must err at all.

I thank Rufus Godwins Esq, Rivers State Head of Service, for bringing that instruction into my consciousness when I worked with him in the Rivers State Ministry of Environment. It is important for every human being to start his mental development and understanding in learning to fall without getting hurt in the process: “erring on the side of caution” makes grace much more available because there will always be a good reason for every error when erring finds caution trailing it. Yes! There are errors that are unforgivable.

Anybody attempting to judge me by what is known (heard, seen, felt, perceived) of me may fall into uncautionable error. I live my life more in my mental cage than in my bodily cage. You do not, and cannot understand the level and dimensions of the grace I enjoy from the Almighty God. Apart from understanding the dispensations of God’s manifestations to earthen man, as written in scriptures, I have also understood the capacities of those dispensations. I float upon the appreciation that Wisdom is the embodiment of the Almighty God, Knowledge, the embodiment of Jesus Christ and Understanding, the embodiment of the Holy Spirit, all given in their dispensations to help humans appreciate their creator and maker, that they might voluntarily, of their own volition, return back to the place of worship with him – he seeks such human beings who would..

Now talking about dispensations, let me quickly relate our minds to and with the 1st Book of Genesis and in how the Wisdom of God brought everything to be and being. And to some who can grasp this well, the “Lord God”, who is the Christ, the spoken word of God, from Genesis 2, became earthly in the Adamic years to fulfill the dimension of “God with us” with the first family mentally, but unfortunately before the relationship could be consummated, Christ became hidden to them because their consciousness changed and they became mundane and very materialistic. I am concerned about Christianity diffentiating between the material and the spiritual.

A Holy appearance after man’s fall would have annihilated the human race eternally, just like “eating of the tree of life” would have perpetuated death and cancelled human life as designed by God – it was to be the next step as planned by the devil but God owns timing and he intervene, and today I find myself geographically in Nigeria -, after Adam and Eve voluntarily hid from God, of their own volition, exercising their “freewill” in disobedience. It resulted in their been enabled to see their “nakedness” against the intention of their lives’ origin, and that made them “ashamed” – may God helps us from being ashamed of our own nakedness, may he teach us how to deal with it rather. So, the dispensation of God took “7 days”, which upon the 7th he rested.

For the sake of the erring of the first Adam, mankind needed the second Adam. Until the second Adam was made ready according to the Sabbath generations of Abraham’s descendants as recorded in Matthew 1:1-14, and until the incarnation of Christ in the body of the man Jesus, Christ remained hidden to mankind physically and mentally. So we had the dispensation of the hidden Christ (I have a book on “The Hidden Wisdom”) as recorded in Matthew 1:17. Of course it is recorded that the “seen Christ” lived and walked with men upon the sands of the Palestine for 33 years.

He manifested the wisdom of God bodily, at the same time revealed the knowledge of God mentally and sent his Holy Ghost to fill us through eternity – God is complete in us, why seek to sit permanently under the tutorship of another man? He said it clearly that he speaks in “proverbs” that they who hear materially may not understand him – how sure are you of he who stands on your “pulpit”? Sieve, filter and dissect every message any man shares with you of this embodiment of love that discarded all to be with us. My God is a very mighty but a very simple being. I can relate with him without ” hiding” (Romans 14:22b)

At the end of his earthly pilgrimage he told us of a “comforter” he will send, to “take from him, and to show (us) things to come”. Now having experienced the spirit of Jesus in me, he activated the understanding of the wisdom of God who he personified, and his unveiling knowledge within me, making me complete in him, why then should anyone question me for dwelling in my mentality in order to live in oneness with God as my “Im-manuel” (Em – us, Im – me). I admitted him when he knocked asking me to let him “come in”. “I stand at the door (of the heart) and knock, and if any man hears and open unto me, I will come and sup with him”. Where is my fault in this?

So I know who I am, and like the “wind” that I am, you cannot tell from where I coming, nor to where I am going, but you can appreciate or depreciate what I blow your way. Whatever it is, please protest as you can or relate with me as you can but do not attempt to validate me – I will not permit it. Its the most childish arrogance anybody can manifest. I have learnt to expect nothing from anybody except the Almighty God and I encourage men to do same.

So, I am a Nigerian, a very proud black man occupying and building up to rule the human world by and with the knowledge of Christ, because I know Christ like no other man on earth knows him: permit me to blow my own trumpet, you can blow yours. I wish every man can talk like me.

Talking about nationalism: the Jews pray constantly for the “peace and prosperity of Jerusalem”, and scripture instructs me to pray for the peace and prosperity of my city, for in its peace and prosperity dwells my own peace and prosperity. I am admonished to also pray for the government God has permitted over me but I am obliged to maintain my faith in Christ unshakably. And in accepting my responsibility as an Ambassador of Christ in Nigeria, I speak the mind of God for Nigeria boldly. Faith is the “substance” of hope, and at the same time the “evidence” of the unseen. Faith is a casting reliance on the “revealed word”, for the Christian, without rationalizing it.

I am a sustaining seasoning to Nigeria’s national decay and an illumination in her blackness of darkness. Permit me to zero in on my 3 letters to President Muhammadu Buhari, in which I asked him to “sit up or resign…and hand power over to me” as the will of the Almighty God for an “Interventionist President of Nigeria”. I am prepared for leadership and for rules. My very essence qualifies this because I live by the first Adamic nature, where though I am ” naked” I am not “ashamed” because I do not see myself naked mentally. I am a human specie possessing a superhuman consciousness.

I am not in doubt that different Christian brands are locked in prayers to have God installed a “Christian President” in Nigeria and I am presently in team with a brand as one of the “24 Elders”, if you can get that. My most recent call, however, in the face of the Christian expectation, is for Nigerians to embrace the “Muslim/Muslim ticket” for the 2019 Presidential election.

After my letters and Mr President’s positive response to my first and most important demand, words came to me again “do you think the justice of June 12 1994 served?”, that way God showed me “rule of compensation” we have developed our 4th Republic with and how one arm of justice in that “abortion” is awaiting remediation: imagine the time this is coming to the Nigerian Christian Community – it can only be God who can think like this – no fears with him and this is the message to the Nigerian Christians.. A very good friend told me openly that I am “mixing things up” because of this demand. I wish to clarify this error of judgment.

Yes! I asked President Buhari to “…resign…and hand power over to me” but before this, I asked him to “Sit up or….” And I think if he has decided to “Sit up”, should there be any need for his resignation? No! God is not the author of confusion and God’s intervention can only come if President Buhari misuses the present opportunity he has to be God’s arm in Nigeria. For now, by the Spirit of God, he has wheeled back Nigeria on track. I will not hide President Buhari’s inadequacies and how much this has brought untold sufferings to Nigerians, but it is because he is working without a supportive legislature and a subservient (rulers ng) party leaders who clearly think President Buhari is “The Making Of Bola Tinubu”, unmindful that he was “cut to size”.

For the records, no living Nigerian deserves a standing applause for the present stability of our national politics and striving democracy like Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu: he can be trusted for having persevere for this long (1989 to …) winning in Nigeria’s political development. He sustains the strongest opposition in party politics in Nigeria any day. Even in the APC which he created with like minds, he is still the “Opposition Leader”. No one fought for the dismantling of the political greed of our military. He was a very strong proponent of the retirement of all military politicians from the Armed Forces during the Obasanjo administration. Some of those retirees are doing well in natiional politics.

The foremost thing I demanded from President Buhari, and the major thing which would have led Nigeria into a damning political crisis would have been his accepting the “tenure elongation” of the APC NWC. President Buhari, from the beginning of his administration, completely failed to ascend to his responsibility as the National Leader of the APC, and his dereliction led to Bukola Saraki “fingering” the “cat” of the APC NWC, controlling them as in a leper colony, and Oyegun enjoying the “rape” and “fingering”: he is a very dishonorable man.

I just could not sit and watch Mr President allow a pretender use him to thwart the efforts of Nigerians in long suffering the inadequacies of this administration. I bet Nigerians, the desire of Saraki to change the sequences of elections will flounder and fizzle out. Buhari watched with his eyes wide open, doing nothing and still did nothing until Saraki started reversing the steering wheel of his government. Recall that it was the APC leadership that stopped Saraki’s CCT trial – why? Oyegun is intelligently a very average man

The sequences of elections was to be the final hammer intended to be used to hammer down President Buhari’s incumbent powers after the Senatorial elections, enabling his impeachment before his election, which would take a two weeks interval after the senatorial elections, otherwise why are the governors who all voted for tenure elongation backsliding? Belly fools! This period would have been a decisive period for the life of Nigeria, as there is likely to be bloodshed such as we have not known.

President Buhari has clearly “sat up” for the first time as the national leader of the APC and his victory at the 2019 election is fait accompli, I speak by the power of God. But what he should remedy at this time is the debt we own “the rule” by which we are operating our present 4th Republic, and I subsequently demanded that because Nigeria’s redemption stands on the remediation of the aborted “Muslim/Muslim ticker” of “Abiola/Kingibe” victory of June 12 1993, and we are well positioned as a country, now, to have a competent combination in “Buhari/Tinubu ticket”. We must not miss this chance at national restitution.

I am a passionate Christian who follows no man’s word and whatever anyone can find to tell me about Christ, I also have the access to who any preacher has. So I would rather hear Jesus by myself. I have no classifications of human beings: we are “different colors, one people”. The colors could be race, religion, ethnicity, class, or whatever that divides humanity, Now, how can Nigerian Christians, especially heads of churches defend their hate for the Hausa/Fulanis? Why can they not hide their disgust for President Buhari’s reelection bid? Why can they not stand for the “Muslim/Muslim ticket” today? It is because they have left their houses “desolate”. There was a good reason why God allowed the Egyptian slavery of the Jews. Can any nation dare them now? Not even “Rome”, not even “Alexander the Great”.

We the Nigerian Christian community should remove ourselves from the blackness of darkness that has engulf Nigeria and be the reason God should take back Nigeria for Nigerians through President Muhammadu Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. If God can use anything, if God can use stones, then he can use President Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. Why “kick against the goad” because of “Jacob’s pottage”? This is the word of God: thanks be to God.

RANDOM MUSING: DIGITALIZATION OF DIABOLISM AND NIGERIAN POLITICS

I think our ancestors too have chosen to digitalize their methodologies in dealing with the living. Ancestry is tradition, but I have never tried to associate tradition with modernity until my big brother, and an erstwhile political office holder in my LGA visited me at home in furtherance of his Easter goodwill to my family. What I clearly retrieved from his alarming story showed how tools of tradition, having to do with diabolical practices, used as evil appliances in hunting down the living by the living, is now digitalized. My brother politician lives a few blocks away from me. He is my kinsman and as he said, a leading member of the Buhari Campaign Organisation in Akwa Ibom State:

I wondered how this claim came about, same way as I wondered Chibuike Amaechi’s rumored appointment as Campaign DG of the said organisation. Why should it be “Buhari Presidential Campaign Organization”? Our democracy permits a “joint ticket” for our presidential election. And appointment into a political party organization is not usually individualized or apportioned. Campaigns are matters of a political party, it is the flag given in election that gives legitimacy to every candidate representing the party in the election, and not the intent of Mr President or the presidency especially and n this case – too many things happen behind President Buhari’s back: truth be told. My first surprise at this, is that nobody has yet denied the rumor of Amaechi’s appointment thus. I have now revealed to pressmen an helpless issue they should raise with the presidency, as to why a political campaign appointment should be made when he is yet to declare his intention to rerun for the presidency.

The question is: has Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi been appointed the Director General of the “Buhari Presidential Campaign Organization”? Or is it a mistake of nomenclature. Nigerians need to know if Buhari will fly his party’s flag with Osinbajo or if he would return to demand for who he demanded in the first place in 2015? I think Mr President should dare Nigerians with considering Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as his running mate for the 2019 presidential election: many would wonder my position. Mine is purely from hindsight, insight and foresight. I will take you on a little spiritual trip into our far past. We will take aspects of the injustices meted on the total story of the June 12 1993 Presidential election. Oh! How I love to dare!

I dare Mr President to dare Nigerians by reinforcing the believe that he has an “agenda” to “Islamize Nigeria” and prove how innocent he is of the accusation after he has secured victory on a “Muslim/Muslim ticket” with th Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. OH! How I love to dare but I wish President Buhari can also dare like me. I am a Christian brothers and sister, and I am sincere about my position that Nigeria should understand why we must attract to our polity the “Muslim/Muslim ticket” for national restitution. It was for me to come to this call that I pleaded with President Buhari, in three open letters to him, asking him to “Sit Up Or Resign…”, demanding two things from him: the rejection of tenure elongation for APC working committees across board, and the suspension of all democratic strictures using the powers of the CinC should the national assembly attempt to override his rejection of the amendment bill f the electoral law to suit Saraki’s fancy, or let the senate explain the national interest they are trying to defend with sequences of elections, when they are the direct beneficiaries. They have no shame and for these bunch we do not need a foolish democracy.

I tired my life to the political progress of Nigeria because I knew that President Buhari would have finally nailed Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Nigeria’s political cross for our Easter sacrifice needlessly, because there is one sacrifice that speaks better things, and we would have lost another opportunity we have for national redemption and sociopolitical restitution for our nation’s divine cleansing from past political inconsistencies, if he had allowed the elongation of tenure for the present APC NWC members, a very derelict bunch of political opportunists. APC NEC consists of the President, Vice President, SGF (from the presidency), principal officers of both houses of the national assembly, state governors, the members of the NWC and the chairmen of state working committees. All of them are direct beneficiaries of the tenure elongation because even with the crisis in all state branches of the party because they are derelict in service, they devices a highway of self benefit in the face of their lack of merit.

I love godliness and I love Truth when I have him clearly. The injustice of the June 12 1993 Presidential election did not only rob the South West of the Abiola Presidency, we thank God it was remedied in the failed Obasanjo administration, which mismanaged 8 years of national prosperity, promoted other failed and administrations after him, and if it was just and fair for the South West to be accorded, and have enjoyed compensation, permitted by the zoning of the Presidency by all political parties to the region at that time, allowing only presidential candidates from the zone to contest in the first presidential election, after the June 12 annulment, in the 4th Republicans, then it should just and fair to finish with the second arm.of that s injustice too: justice is served with two arms – one with the sword and the other with the balance. The injustice of the June 12 1993 aborted presidential victory has not been fully remedied.

it must be made clear that an important issue of that injustice is still left unattended to, and because Nigeria’s Holocaust is made ready already and Nigeria’s disintegration is ticking and our nation can become a foregone conclusion as “there was a country”. It was for this reason that I insisted on mentioning that if Buhari allows tenure elongation, he would lose the 2019 election and throw Nigeria into crisis,/a crisis which God Almighty will step into and appoint death to sit on the Seat of the President and dare anyone to go sit on it. This will ensue the ascension of an Interventionist President for Nigeria. As an ambassador of the Kingdom of God on earth, I dare say that the Almighty God is not happy with Nigerians for allowing spiritual beasts continue to lead decent people he has appointed to glorify him on this land. Or does God not deserve his glory in Nigeria?

I dare say that President Buhari’s attitude towards his political party from the onset has caused Oyegun to wallow in self conceit and political delusion, and until Mr President can redeem himself, Oyegun will be his nemesis, as he was for had m in the ANPP where he was also party chairman. The personalization of political party participation in the campaign process prior to an election was what happened to Jonathan and was a major reason for Jonathan’s lost of the 2015 Presidential election. His wife, Patience, contributed more than 35% affirmation to his lost of that election by her public parades, overtaking the leaders of the PDP. 35% affirmation is usually left for women participation and Patience used it all up herself alone bringing her husband down. This one that Amaechi left Buhari’s office and say d he was made DG of BCO…ehhnnnn!

You know Muslim men do not like the parade of women before them, the acts of Patience led to the stoning of a sitting president in 2 core northern states during his campaign tours. We can forgive this and ask some northern youths to grow up. President Buhari must reinvent the APC and make it a strong platform for him to stand at campaigns and to prepare a platform for him to succeed at the 2019 presidential elections. Nevertheless, President Buhari has done well in annulling the tenure elongation bid, a bid like Obasanjo’s “third term” bid. Truly Obasanjo is evil just like Babangida, but while Babangida is a “genius”, Obasanjo is a true Yoruba man – he loves noise making and “ejo ejumi sile…oooo!” (Ooo! Leave me let me fight)

These were my thoughts when my brother politician and a local stalwart of the APC sat at talk with me on my verandah on Easter Monday. I was surprised that he was unawares of my position on the tenure elongation issue, but while he is expecting congresses to be held based on a released timetable, I told him to discard the matter as Mr President had already appointed a “reconciliation committee” that must be allowed to complete the assigned work. He opened up on why he wanted the present hierarchy of the APC to continue and was elated that this coming Saturday will be Ward Congress where he hopes the party would return all the incumbent ward executives and follow, thus, through all other congresses and to the national convention, hoping to represent the same people whose tenure elongation bid we have rejected: bringing them in through the back door and wasting money and time, just to sabotage the Asiwaju committee. I said to myself “see political diabolism!”. Mr President’s integrity is at stake;/the Asiwaju Committee has work to do and the present APC NWC must freely go on 30 June 2018.

Would anyone take Oyegun’s NWC released timetable for congresses and convention seriously? Has Oyegun forgotten that Mr President himself set up a reconciliation committee that he thinks should prepare the party for the congresses and convention? Is it not now clear that Oyegun is attempting to sabotage Mr President’s desire to activate the APC’s strength to win the 2019 Presidential election? I will come back to this. Let me stay on the subject matter briefly: ancestors and the digitalization of diabolism.

My brother politician’s story was: “my brother, please be careful these days when.you receive calls on your mobile telephone. Things are happening these days. Anytime you receive a call from now on, do not be quick to answer ‘hello’. People now use phone calls to eliminate their enemies. As you answer and say ‘hello’, you are cut off from the other end, and you just die at this end. If you have a call, cut it and call the person back (gwanjo: who get that kaien money?), and you can avoid trouble”. “Wow!” I said to myself “diabolism is now digitalized”. Our ancestors are now using the global system for mobile (GSM) their own way and touching us as in a telephone conversation. “Wonders” is just beginning, and “shall never end”?

I have had stories of voice calls from 5 digit numbers that if you pick, you die instantly. I have experienced an embarrassing moment when I received a link from a very respected Christian brother and I thought he has gotten his own N3,000 worth of airtime and wanted me to join in on the MTN anniversary bonanza. I sent that nonsense to 30 of my contacts and felt bad when I realized I was one of his own 30. I wished I could pull them back but I was already embarrassed for seeking free N3,000 airtime before 30 friends: amem? (is it easy?). Another digital diabolism. That one catch me hands down. But brothers and sisters, I won’t die from answering calls ooo! I no be fowl.

Now let us look at our sociopolitical troubles as Nigeria: if you look at the matter closely, you will see it like my friend Arc Mfon Akpabio saw it recently. He bursted out: ” corruption! Corruption!! Corruption!!!,/we are tired of hearing of PDP 16 years of corruption. We now want roads, food, hospitals etc”. And believe me he was right. I said it in my epistles to Mr President and showed him how he was standing on one leg when he is provided with three. He lost the APC to Oyegun and the national assembly to Saraki, who sneaked in like a thief into the national assembly grounds at dawn and his like a rogue in a small car just to be senate president. God forbid that I should respect such as senate president. I would rather have an “akop usem ebot” (our native goat). I know a thing about his father when he was senate leader under Joseph Wayas. A true son of his father indeed.

Our politicians cannot distinguish between “politics” and “governance”. Now let me afford some education, par adventure this one cry from me would get into their “greasy heads”. Now get this and say after me ” politics is the given process in a polity where by an adult can express his aspiration to the leadership of his people” and “governance is what the people benefit from you when your aspiration to leadership has been fulfilled”. Politics the process of seeking political power and governance is what is done with the political power given. In the Buhari administration, only the executive arm of government attempts governance, and since it takes the representatives of the people to get these governance to the people using the laws they make as vehicles, what the s happening to us as a people is the lack of functional vehicles to convey the dividends of hood governance this administration has instituted.

The national assembly in conjunction with the APC leadership targeted two people for political “elimination” – “cutting down” – President Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. First they scuttled the opportunity at righting the injustice done against the “Muslim/Muslim ticket” of June 12 1993 by scuttling Tinubu’s Vice Presidential bid and to terminate his relevance in the APC: they thought they had succeeded but now they know better. The next to be cut down would have been President Buhari at the dawn of the 2019 Presidential elections, paving the way for Bukola Saraki to sleep in small cars and become our President. God forbid it. Instead of Bukola Saraki to be Nigeria’s President, death will seat as President over Nigeria. Let’s wait and see! It is now urgent, incumbent and almost belated on Mr President to hurry the Asiwaju committee up and give them until mid May to submit their report and to set up caretaker committees to handle the intended Congresses and the national convention. The credibility of the present APC NWC is dysfunctional and cannot be trusted to deliver necessary party events. I saw through Oyegun since June 2015/and I I’ll publish my article on him as at tgen soon.

Thank you folks
