Nigeria 2015: Obasanjo warns APC, PDP: Don’t field Muslim-Muslim, Christian-Christian ticket

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo

Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has warned the country’s main political parties not to field a presidential ticket with two people of the same religion.

In a statement on Sunday in Abeokuta, the former president said, “It will be insensitive to the point of absurdity for any leader or any political party to be toying with Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket at this juncture.”

Although Mr. Obasanjo did not mention any political party in his warnings, observers of the 2015 political intrigues could term it as being targeted at the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC.

Although the APC has in the past said it was not planning to field such a ticket as warned by Mr. Obasanjo, the party has been accused of toying with a Muslim-Muslim ticket. A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, who left the party for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, listed such plans as one of his reasons for leaving.

The main presidential hopefuls of the APC- Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar and Rabiu Kwakwanso – are Muslims, while the Lagos State governor, Babatunde Fashola, also a Muslim, has been touted as a possible running mate. The party is, however, yet to hold is presidential primaries.

On its part, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has virtually adopted President Goodluck Jonathan as its candidate; with the president expected to retain Vice President Namadi Sambo as his running mate. Mr. Jonathan is a Christian while Mr. Sambo is a Muslim.

In his warning, Mr. Obasanjo, whose support is being sought for the February 14, 2015 presidential elections by both parties, advised them to be sensitive to Nigeria’s religious diversity. Over 90 per cent of Nigeria’s 150 million population are belived to be either Christians or Muslims.

“Sensitivity is a necessary ingredient for enhancement of peace, security and stability at this point in the political discourse and arrangement for Nigeria and for encouraging confidence and trust,” he said.

Mr. Obasanjo added that “Nigeria cannot at this stage raise the spectre and fear of Islamization or Christianization. The idea of proselytization in any form is a grave danger that must not be contemplated by any serious-minded politician at this delicate situation in Nigeria; as this time is different from any other time.

“Therefore, disregarding the fact that there are fears that need to be allayed at this point will amount not only to insensitivity of the highest order but will also amount to very bad politics indeed.”

  • Ayelala

    Inadvertently admitting the falsehood that is Nigeria.
    Why continue with the charade of a country?
    It is not working,It never worked and it will never work.
    I and most omoluabis see people/character and not religion.
    We want people who reflect our values and not who kneels down the most to foreign gods.
    For this reason,Nigeria is a doomed country and the likes of Obasanjo will continue to live with their eternal delusion.

    • endingNaija

      O se Ayelala. Thanks Ayelala. I am just wondering what the dubious politicians are talking about. Somebody sells himself as the “Christian” candidate-coming down to Yoruba land and talk about the disease called Yoruba Muslim/Christian and his dubious and criminal campaigners say “hey see us we are neutral… but we are Christian party…” And see what “Christian” candidate sitting on the most heinous corruption ever in the history of NIgeria? And that is Godly? We need to begin to check everything. Any way O se Ayelala-thanks Ayelala.

    • Lanre

      Thank you Ayelala. By extension of this warped thinking from so-called elders, a Christian should not marry a Muslim. I wonder what they are all hiding that they are scared of a Buhari/Fashola Presidency. Please someone should advise Fashola to increase his security. Buhari is a retired General, he does not need my advise.

  • umolu

    It was Babangida that introduced religion into our body politics and he is alive today. He took us to the OIC singlehandedly. Obasanjo,Where were you then?The two guys that taught Nigerians how to queue for things were both Muslims and Nigerians did not complain.Since Babangida, everything in Nigeria has a religious connotation.If we are that religious why are we that corrupt.The largest corruption in Nigeria happened between you, Babangida and the late Sani.

    • endingNaija

      And PDP and President Jonathan and his 2015 campaigners have perfected that diseased binary by introducing religion to Yoruba space, and polity by creating the diseased phantom called Yoruba Muslim/Christian in a dubious, opportunistic and criminal attempt at targeting so-called Yoruba “Christian” vote. Sadly , while Asari Dokubo is muslim supporting hos candidate Goodluck Jonathan the same criminal politicians did not create Ijaw Muslim/Christian Dichotomy, Niger Delta Muslim/Christian dichotomy, Igbo Christian./Muslim Dichotomy. Yoruba -e fura! Yoruba Be Vigilant-

    • Lanre

      Thank you, Umolu. Obasanjo always acts like he knows everything. That man has done more harm to Nigeria than anyone I can remember. Who sold Yar’adua to Nigerians? Who sold Jonathan to Nigerians? Nigeria is a mirage and even Obasanjo himself knows. I don’t care for Buhari but I know that if he picks Fashola as his deputy in a race, APC is likely to get 80% of Yoruba votes because Yorubas have and never will become slaves to religion. Our great leaders who laid the foundation for us, did not breed us in religious bigotry. Obasanjo cannot reverse the good works and example of Chief Awolowo and Bashorun Abiola.

      • endingNaija

        O se Lanre. Thanks Lanre-period. Nothing to add. I have been talking about this intellectual and moral disease the dubious dichotomy called Yoruba Muslim/ Christian created in Yoruba polity and space by PDP and Goodluck Jonathan campaigners. You can abuse the Yoruba from today till tomorrow. One thing we do not have and which we are PROUD of because it is what we can recommend to the Global World which is becoming multicultural, multifaith, multi ethnic is the non-binary , non-dochotomous way of thing and organizing society. This is INHERENT AND EMBEDDED IN YORUBA CULTURE. Some ignorant and one dimensional and with lean and slim thinking process call this inclusiveness, this diversity , this virtue and value ‘weakness” . That is fine. They have a right to their naming us that way. But that is who we are-We are Christians, muslims, non-muslims, non-christians, everything good the Global human world creates and will create in love, peace and unity. That is why the Yoruba say “gbogbo eniti odun ba ba laye , lo n sodun”meaing that “every human regardless of your faith celebrates with the other. That is embedded in yoruba thought independent of christianity and Islam. That is the peak and nadir of love , unity and peaceful inclusivity the global world is searching for. So it is puerile, impoverishing, trite and malnourishing in thought for some politicians especially the Goodluck Jonathan and PDP campaigners to just wake up one morning on a 2015 vote hunting safari and create a diseased phantom called Yoruba Christian/Muslim. But the dubious thing is Asari Dokubo is muslim and he said blood will flow if the “christian” candidate -Goodluck Jonathan is not re-elected-Asari Dokubo-muslim, Goodluck Jonathan -christian-But they are not talking of Niger Delta Muslim/Christian, Ijaw Muslim/Christian, Igbo Muslim/Christian. Why? they think they have the votes in South south and east so they -PDP and Jonathan 2015 campaigners do not need to create the binary there. But they must create the dubious binary in Yorubaland-anyway thanks Lanre-God bless. Some of us Yoruba middle class will battle this and vanquish the intellectual disease and epidemic- binary the dubiously constructed Yoruba Muslim/Christian. I am Yoruba. And that is where it begins and ends.

        • Lanre

          Thank you, jare my Yoruba brother. I have looked everywhere. North, East, South, West and I have come to the conclusion that a leadership makes a people. Nigeria’s so-called “leaders”, Obasanjo, Babangida, Abacha and co, (the heroes of their Nigeria) are terrible examples. I am proud of the indigenous political leadership of Yorubas, Awolowo, Tinubu, Fashola, Aregbesola who (inspite of their imperfections) have made governance the center of their leadership ethos. This is what the coming young generation of Yorubas should focus on and improve. Not listening to people like Obasanjo.

      GENERAL OBASANJO’S HYPOCRISY, AGAIN!

      General Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo should learn to be forthright on volatile public issues. Nobody in Nigeria ever mooted the idea of Christian-Christian presidential ticket. Instead, Islam has been the issue all along with the APC party comprising 100% Muslims as national executives registered with INEC. The serious-minded advice is instead to assess the pros of constitutinga totally separate Islamic State of Nigeria in the north-west, and, the north-east of Nigeria. No one’s rights will be violated by it. That’s the solution. Christians in those northern areas will then be legally entitled to settlement lands in the Christian State of Nigeria where the resident southern Muslims still desiring domination, or yearning for an Islamic state, will reciprocally be entitled to lands in the north-east or north-west, under the settlement terms of a deed of partition.

      • endingNaija

        Shut up and be forthright-okay? When the PDP , Goodluck Jonathan and his campaigners started their vote hunting campaign in Yoruba land and space with the dubious and criminal and diseased idea of Yoruba Muslim/Christian dichotomy , what does that tell you? When the Goodluck Jonathan dubious campaign machine gave oil money to “Pastor” Bosun Emmanuel to make documentations that are sold on the grounds of the Redeemed Christian Church of Nigeria, what does that tell you? Even when they are corrupt to the bones, but when Ayo Oritsejafor and Goodluck Jonathan carried the name of Nigeria to Israel another sovereign country to “pray” what does that tell you? We know Goodluck Jonathan and Ayo Oritsejafor are dubious, they are sending signals and saying “hey look at us we are in Israel, so we are the :Christian” party and candidate…” When a whole Christain Association of Nigeria CAN called another party “Islamic” what is that ? Please tell me. Mackay or what do you call yourself-you got to speak to this. Though I know you are not Mackay. You are another Reno Omokir Wendel fictional name like the truth, mani_kay, mpitikwelu, akpso1, redeem, otile Gideon Orkar etc etc. But answer these questions.

        @endingnaija:

        No, why? Why should he shut up? Who’s ever talked about Christian-Christian ticket in Nigeria?
        No Christian will ever do that. Christians are fair-minded with a huge sense of proportion.
        I can’t say the same thing for Nigerian Muslims who hardly show possession of conscience.
        The Muslims have made themselves a suspect group and will have to live with the effect of that.

    • Chief Eric B. Thomas

      Public Tribune,

      Excuse me. You say the Muslims are the dominant people in Lagos? But on what basis?
      With fewer educated people and with lesser number of the population? That’s an insult.
      Now i can see clearly that Islam is the problem – not tribalism, regionalism or ethnicity.
      I can now see very well that there’s no difference between illiterate Hausa-Fulani Jihadists; and,
      the rump of Yoruba Muslims. They are united in backward mentality against merits by imposing Islam
      as the ‘only merits’ for holding public office. If Christians do not come together, quickly, to defeat
      this apartheid in Yorubaland by voting out Islamism in 2015, a religious war may ensue in Yorubaland
      where Christians are in the majority.

        WHY CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR OF LAGOS IS MANDATORY

        After 16 years of un-interrupted Muslim rule of Lagos state – from May 1999 to May 2015 – a successive Christian governor of Lagos state shall become mandatory and non-negotiable to avoid creating by
        default an Islamic caliphate of Lagos state.

        But just as it is un-acceptable for the Leader of Boko Haram (Mujahedeen Shekahu Abubakar) to select the Archbishop of Lagos, so it is un-acceptable for Alhaji
        Bola Ahmed Tinubu, or his thick as thieves Islamist satrap – Oba Akiolu of Lagos – to endorse or select a successive Christian governor of Lagos state.

        All ploys by both men, as Muslims, to personally choose a successive Christian governor is no more than
        a clever by half exercise in futility which should be ignored and rejected by all right-thinking Lagosians.
        To start with, just as no member of Boko Haram militia – as an Islamic terrorist organization – is
        acceptable to Christians for any purpose, so is a member of the All Progressives Congress (as an
        Islamist party)
        un-acceptable to the Christian community in Lagos state for 2015 governorship.

        • Christian Youth League

          …..WHY CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR OF LAGOS IS MANDATORY [2]

          The choice of a successive Christian governor of Lagos state must be
          on a non-Islamist party platform. All Christians in Lagos state shall proceed
          from this first principle. If it will mean voting en masse for the preferred
          Christian candidate on the party platform of a completely new political party,
          so be it.

          The coming governorship election in Lagos state is NOT about political parties.
          Rather it is first of all to remove the cancer of insidious Islamism injected into
          Lagos state politics by Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his side-kick; Alhaji Raji Fashola,
          and to bring both dubious men to justice for theft of portions of the $40 billion dollars
          that Lagos state earned as gross revenues from 1999 till date.

          • endingNaija

            And that party is? the “Christian” Party-PDP supervised by the “Christian” presidential Candidate- Goodluck Jonathan. Even that is why we-“Christian” party PDP are in Israel (IN A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY-SEE HOW WE SELL NIGERIA CHEAP IN THE DESPERATE NAME OF RELIGION?) “praying”? See what I mean? The game is up my friend -supervised by Pastor Reno Wendel Omokri the Online Media coordinator of the “Christian” party-PDP

    • Sola Onilere-Peters

      Oh, my God! What sort of Muslims are these ones? Where did they come from?
      See how both Bola Tinubu and Raji Fashola have destroyed Yoruba heritage!
      I can’t believe any Yoruba man will ever say such nonsense – i can’t believe my eyes!
      Now i must support the motion that Christians should hold governorship of Lagos state
      for the next 16 years – as the Muslims did – beginning from 2015 until the year 2031 A.D.

    • Lanre

      Thank you, Maria. I hope the hunger and poverty ravaging Nigeria will not blind Nigerians to the harm done them by people like Babangida and Obasanjo. When I was growing up, it was Buhari, Babangida, Abacha, Abubakar, Gusau, Shinkafi, Ciroma. All Northern muslims. Those were the people that were bred to rule. Diya, Ukiwe, Aikhomu were mere appendages. Everyone knew where power laid. So what is Obasanjo mouthing? Independent Yorubaland today, Please. Enough of the hypocrisy and genuflecting by Nigerians. Enough of the polemical sophistry of deception by Babangida,Obasanjo and the other wasted generation of decrepit Nigerian rulers.

        You have just confirmed that all the KEY National Executive Positions were assigned to Muslims ……. this is extremely parochial and reveals the hidden religious agenda of APC.

        NO BASIS TO COMPARE PDP TO APC

        PDP = A broad based national political party set up by Nigerians who firmly believe in the unity of Nigeria and are committed to ensure equity and fairness in the country’s political affairs.

        APC = A violent and murderous Islamic party set up to carter for the interests of a narrow group of ethnic and religious bigots whose main intention is to unleash a state of anarchy on Nigeria.

        APC’s two fold agenda are: (1). the Islamization of Nigeria and (2) the restoration of Presidential power to the caliphate born-to-ruin Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani who believe that they alone are born-to-rule Nigeria forever.

        Please do not compare PDP which is set up as a broad based national political party to APC which is set up as a violent and murderous Islamic party to carter for the interests of a narrow group of ethnic and religious bigots whose main intention is to unleash a state of anarchy on Nigeria.

    SPOT THE DIFFERENCES IN THE STATEMENTS BELOW AND WIN N100million:

    THE MAN BUHARI 72+ >>>>> “His insensitivity to Nigeria’s diversity and his parochial focus are already well-known.” (On Quote: Nasir El-Rufai)

    IBB ON BUHARI AS FAR BACK AS 1985:
    “Let me at this point attempt to make you understand the premise upon which it became necessary to change the leadership.

    The principles of discussions, consultation and co-operation which should have guided decision-making process of the Supreme Military Council and the Federal Executive Council were disregarded soon after the government
    settled down in 1984.

    Where some of us thought it appropriate to give a little more time, anticipating a conducive atmosphere that would develop, in which affairs of state could be attended to with greater sense of responsibility, it became increasingly clear that such expectations could not be fulfilled.

    Regrettably, it turned out that Major-General Muhammadu Buhari was too rigid and uncompromising in his attitudes to issues of national significance.

    Efforts to make him understand that a diverse polity like Nigeria required recognition and appreciation of differences in both cultural and individual perceptions, only served to aggravate these attitudes.”

    NASIR EL-RUFAI ON BUHARI IN 2010
    “Against all canons of legal decency, he Buhari used retroactive laws to execute three young men for drug-peddling after they were convicted by a military tribunal and not regular courts of law. Buhari was so high handed that he gave himself and his officials immunity even from truthful reporting. That obnoxious Decree 4, against which truth was no defence, was used to jail journalists and attempt to cow the media as a whole. That tyrannical legislation shows the essence of his intolerance. These are facts of recent history. The story of counter-trade and import licensing, the cornerstone of Buhari’s stone-age economic strategy and those whose interests it served, is a tale for another day.”

    “I, Mallam El-Rufai wishes to remind General Buhari that he has remained perpetually unelectable because his record as military head of state, and afterwards, is a warning that many Nigerians have wisely heeded. His insensitivity to Nigeria’s diversity and his parochial focus are already well-known.”

    ATIKU ON BUHARI IN 2014:
    “I believe that the next president of our country, who by the grace of God will be produced by our great party, must be someone who is a unifier, bridge-builder and not someone who bears ethno-religious bias. Above all, he must embody a vision of a Nigeria for all.”

    So what has Goodluck Jonathan and Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor gone to do in Israel preparatory to Goodluck Jonathan’s personal declaration of his presidential electoral 2015 ambition? Why Israel? How many times will President Jonathan and Pastor Oritsejafor go to Israel in a year? If it is about pilgrimage -where in the Bible is this pilgrimage mandatory? And if it is mandatory, how many times should this pilgrimage be done? What signals are being sent to Nigerians by this state sponsored pilgrimages? And to who are the signals being sent on the eve of Nigerian elections? When President Jonathan went to the ground on the Redeemed Christian Church Of God on Lagos -Ibadan Express road on the eve of last elections and knelt down before Pastor Adeboye for (photo-op) photographers to take the pictures and then paste on president Jonathan’s campaign materials, what was being said by that act? And to who was that “Christian” act directed? And more importantly-remember the Internet security scam (which handed Nigerian security to a common business company in israel) involving ELBIT-the Israeli company? Why an Israeli company? if that was just busines , why is it that another Israeli Mr. Eyal Mesika was involved in the money laundering and criminal and illegal arms deal with Nigerian money-involving Pastor oritsejafor’s private jet in South Africa.? Nigerians , this is the time to EXPOSE EVERYTHING AND NOTHING SHALL AND MUST BE HIDDEN FROM NIGERIANS AND OUR COMMON GOD-CHRISTIAN,MUSLIM, NON-MUSLIM, NON -CHRISTIAN. The PDP and Goodluck Jonathan 2015 election campaigners must be ready to answer all these questions. And Nigerians who are being taken for a ride by those who sell themselves as “christian” candidate must ask hard questions.

      “APC is diametrically opposed to the multi-religious values of the Yoruba
      As a party, APC stokes religious conflicts between Christians and Muslims.
      APC denies Yoruba people Freedom of Information under Nigerian Law.
      APC is, besides that, roguish and thievish and does not render public accounts.
      The enlightened people in Yorubaland cannot sensibly endorse such a toxic party.”

        Look Mr. Demola Harrison or whatever your “Yoruba” name is. We know ourselves on this platform and we know our language. So I know where you are coming from-i.e. the PDP and Goodluck Jonathan online writers who masquerade under all kinds on names. But this is my question: PDP and the 2015 campaigners for Goodluck Jonathan started the dubious construction Yoruba Muslim/Christian. Why? Thinking that this will fly with the Yoruba mind, they are targeting what they perceive in their diseased mind to be “Yoruba Christian”. Some of us Yoruba middle class who are inserted in the heart and souls of our people said what? Yoruba Christian? Yoruba Muslim? That evil dichotomy must go down in the history book of thought as one of the biggest contradictions in the world. There is nothing called Yoruba Christian/Muslim. The culture is too deep to permit such un-intelligent proposition. So do not bring any APC talk here. Goodluck Jonathan and his people who are on a vote hunting safari for 2015 across Nigeria are l;ooking for the most desperate ways to get the votes, and THEY DO NOT CARE WHAT HAPPEN SO FAR THEY GET THE VOTE. ON A DESPERATE SAFARI THEY DO NOT CARE TO DIVIDE AND SET THE COUNTRY ON FIRE BY THE DICHOTOMY AND BINARY ON RELIGIOUS LINE THEY CREATE. They started this grim binary in Yoruba land and we will STOP it. Now this is the rub and the evil nature of their strategy. Asari Dokubo is muslim and Niger Delta. Asari Dokubo said he will spill Nigerian blood if Goodluck Jonathan is not re-elected. Right? But Goodlcuck Jonathan is “:christian: and Ijaw/Niger Delta. Asari Dokubo and his terrorist group,is Niger Delta and Asari is muslim. So why will a muslim (Asari Dokubo) say he will die for a christian (Goodluck JOnathan) ? Simple, they are both Niger delta apart from the terrorist and corrupt project that link them. So if there Niger Delta bind them, why should the PDP and Goodluck Jonathan come to Yoruba land and create Yoruba MUslim/Christian dichotomy? Because they can throw oil money around the way they gave it to “Pastor” Bosun Emmanuel to do the silly thing that one did? That is the evil nature in Goodluck Jonathan’s mind and his PDP. But Yoruba culture is deep and the people are highly reflective and they are ready. We Yorubas asked Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP to stop this rubbish years ago, they insulted everyone. But now the cookie has come home to roost, they are looking for votes, and they think the best way is to throw the moral and intellectual disease in their own minds -called binary thinking of all types. But we Yorubas do not think that way. And they should stop it. Also, we are not merchants. We will wait-and SEE -what the Yoruba mind calls “Oju Sunukun”. That is the density of the thought-hence Awolowo rightly said “Only the deep can call to the deep” I will not say more than this. This is not about some junk called oil money that is being hawked around. It is a straightforward battle of ideas and dubious binary thinking -such as muslim/christian has no place in our own -Yoruba-world. It may have a place in other peoples world, that is fine. But not in ours-period. Hope this helped you whoever he is that used the so-called “Yoruba” name you used.

        • Demola Harrison

          Mr. Endingnaija,</b

          What an apocalyptic name you bear!! Anyway, please understand that i prefer to deal with the actual facts as they are today and not with a rose-tinted rear-mirror view of Yorubaland in the pristine past.

          Today Yorubaland is poisoned by Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Raji Fashola. the duo constitute the destroyers of Yoruba heritage of multi-religious freedom. They have imposed civil burdens on Lagosians simply for being Christians – by denying Christians niche jobs and appointments.

          The duo rather reserve jobs and appointments for less merited Muslims. The result is that 80% of workers in Lagos state Secretariat, Alausa, are Muslims. The place brims with all sorts of Alhajis.

          Once Islam is discriminatorily injected into public space like that, to impose arbitrary penalties on Christians, whilst privileging Muslims, such an invidious administration by Raji fasola is destructive of the ends of government; and therefore, should be terminated forthwith.

          • endingNaija

            My friend these are the actual facts.
            1. Both christians are muslims ruling class DESTROYED this country. And they worked together to destroy the country.
            2.
            If you are talking about the present, Goodluck Jonathan is a
            “Christian” candidate of a “christian” party-PDP-right? But Goodluck
            Jonathan drinks corruption, sleeps in corruption, wakes in corruption
            and breadthes corruption. So what has religion got to do with this?
            Nothing. But I need to remind you of the BIG issues. If you are talking
            about s–called religion, I am saying that is a “christian” candidate
            for you whose first and surname is CORRUPTION and that is Goodluck
            Jonathan. Have him if you want-it is your choice.
            3. Now talk about
            Yoruba space-We in this space DO NOT JUST accept the binary
            Muslim/Christian. We just do not accept and we DO NOT WANT IT-We can sit
            down for the next ten years and talk about this and give you reasons.
            You can actually do dissertations on this culture and why you cannot
            just FOIST this false binary and dichotomy on it. But PDP and
            Goodluck Jonathan are coming do this with oil money in tow for those who
            will help them do this. And I am saying it is not possible. It will not
            work. We do not see ourselves as muslims/christians in Yorubaland. Like
            others, we see ourselves as Yorubas-why is that difficult for you to
            accept? Must I accept your jingoist and false binary just because you
            have oil money or because the oil man has sent you to say these dubious
            things about Yorubas? What is your problem. Go back and tell the oil
            masters who sent you that “THIS IS YORUBALAND, AND WE ARE YORUBAS FIRST
            AND LAST. WE ARE NOT AMENABLE TO THE VOTE GETTING Goodluck Jonathan
            SAFARI of Christian/Muslim Dichotomy in Nigeria-or at least in
            Yorubaland (just in case other parts of Nigeria fall for the false dichotomy). Other parts of NIgeria can fall for the dichotomy,
            that is their business and they have right to choose the way they want
            if they choose binaries. But we In Yorubaland do not think in binary
            terms-It is nether Christian nor Muslim-it is about Governance-FULL
            STOP. That is the way Awolowo taught us-and unfortunately it is too late
            to change -no amount of oil will make us change that. Yu hear? Go tell
            your masters.

  • Words on Marble

    IS THE ACN OR THE APC AN ISLAMIST PARTY?

    The Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN] which last year morphed as APC
    has NEVER presented a Christian as governorship candidate in Yorubaland.
    So, the question is: why did APC never do so? Alhaji Lai Mohammed –
    the APC Spokesman – said it is because APC chooses its candidates ‘on merits’.
    So, what does Lai Mohammed’s explanation mean?

    Very simple, it means as far as APC is concerned, Yoruba Christians have no merits
    to hold top government posts but they could be appointed either as assistants

    to Muslim overlords or as Commissioners taking instructions from a Muslim governor.

    Fact two: APC was formed with 100% Muslim national executives and registered as such with INEC –
    the National Electoral Commission. What does this second fact mean? Very simple, it means
    morning shows the day. Not only does APC consider Yoruba Christians useless,

    APC; by starting out with 100% Muslims as interim national executives, invariably deems
    all Christians in Nigeria worthless.

    In the light of these two clear facts the next logical question is this: “What is an Islamist Party?”
    Very simple – again. An Islamist Party is an association registered as a political party but which internally
    decides the question of ‘merits’ for its members based solely on Islam by pre-judging every non-Muslim;
    and in particular a Christian member, as un-qualified for top government position on its party platform.
    Therefore, is APC an Islamist Party? The answer is, yes!

    • concerned9ja

        @Concerned9ja:

        You are day-dreaming! Just yesterday i saw a 73-year-old-man with AK-47 fighting Islamists in Libya.
        That is what the old people will be forced to do in Nigeria if they don’t stop these Islamists right now.
        APC is an Islamic Jihad. It is not a political party. Christians have no stake in APC except as guests.
        Christians have no stake in APC anymore than Prophet Elijah could have had a stake in Islamic state –
        in old Israel. Anyone deceiving himself now that religion does not matter will find himself looking for a
        gun in self-defence soon. Islamism is dangerous. Islamism is violent. It is to be avoided. So far, Nigerians
        have seen just one type of virulent Islamism by Boko Haram beheading Nigerian soldiers and air-force men.
        But that is not the only type. There are worse versions of Islamism coming to your neighbourhood soon.

The people that came to help them are Emmanuel, Hozea etc; and the people that caused them to be at refugee camp are zanna, Abdul ahi, kareem etc. Be careful.

        THANK YOU FOR THE CONFIRMATION …….. So what people have been saying about APC is really true ………. Your list has just confirmed that all the KEY National Executive Positions were assigned to Muslims ……. this is extremely parochial and reveals the hidden religious agenda of APC.

        NO BASIS TO COMPARE PDP TO APC

        PDP = A broad based national political party set up by Nigerians who firmly believe in the unity of Nigeria and are committed to ensure equity and fairness in the country’s political affairs.

        APC = A violent and murderous Islamic party set up to carter for the interests of a narrow group of ethnic and religious bigots whose main intention is to unleash a state of anarchy on Nigeria.

        APC’s two fold agenda are: (1). the Islamization of Nigeria and (2) the restoration of Presidential power to
        the caliphate born-to-ruin Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani who believe that they alone are born-to-rule Nigeria forever.

        Please do not compare PDP which is set up as a broad based national political party to APC which is set up as a violent and murderous Islamic party to carter for the interests of a narrow group of ethnic and religious bigots whose main intention is to unleash a state of anarchy on Nigeria.

          @ Messrs Tugbi & Ladelegan:

          And now, the conclusion seems inescapable that only a partition can save Nigeria. An Islamic state of Nigeria in the upper northern region is now urgent and exigent for those Muslims who consider beheading a religious duty. Yoruba Muslims who feel like beheading somebody shall be granted automatic citizenship of the the Islamic State of Nigeria where a separate constitution by the Muslim residents there could include a right to behead anybody, anywhere and at anytime.

          That is the solution. Anyone still thinking of ending this conflict on any other terms is not wise.

          In the remainder of the country – to be known in international law as the Christian State of Nigeria, a new Constitution would be similarly agreed to either forbid the practice of Islam – as a cult of hate breeders, just as Islam was banned last year in Angola – or, in the alternative, to cater for all the moderate Muslims who find the Christian State of Nigeria more congenial to civilization, and who renounce violent Jihad, by approving their good faith applications to set up non-belligerent mosques.

          • Otile

            Nothing can be further from the truth. Islam is a way of life, let people live their lives as they see fit. Oil is the only material blinding many people to see the truth that Moslems and non-Moslems cannot live in peace for ever.

    “Islam is incompatible with democracy as a general principle,
    because Islam denies the equality of humanity. Islam instead exhorts
    its followers to behead and continue to kill non-Muslims as compulsory
    religious obligation (Koran 8:12). Islam denies freedom of speech to
    non-Muslims and denies non-Muslims freedom of their own religion. Islam is the
    exact opposite of democracy, indeed; the very anti-thesis of human freedom. He
    who foists Islam on a state denies democracy in tandem, since the indefeasible
    rule of a Caliph violates the rule of law. The equality of humanity is the
    starting point of democracy – but that is what Islam forbids and fights against
    today.”

    While the tendency may be to rush and condemn Baba Iyabo for his inaction during previous Govt’s introduction of religion to Nigerian politics, his keywords to note are, “at this juncture”…and on that I stand. No one can dispute the fact that Nigerian is most divided ‘at this juncture’ with even threats of bloodbath if the elections do not go one way or the other: Gov. Amaechi said they’re ready to “fight with our lives” with his terrorist brother Asari, threatening to turn Nigeria into a “river of blood”…that’s the situation report. I’m no fan of the Ota Gorilla who gave us EVD (Ebele Virus Disease) and his mega corruption, but even the Devil can speak the truth. The way to deal with him is to accept the truth and discard the devil… Baba has a point! However, ‘at this juncture’ what we need are leaders with focus and vision, religion should not be the prism but a balancing act. I’m certain there are people from all religions who can foot the bill of rescuing Nigeria hence, we need to look for proven Nigerians and not at the person/persona behind any religious farcade… afterall, both past Christian and Muslim leaders are responsible for our present predicament. Nonsense!

    • True Nigerian

      I am not an APC member. I am a Christian from the South. But I detest it when people pretend to be defending Christianity whilst portraying the worst image of Christianity. It then becomes religious bigotry in the sense that even the Christian religion you claim to be defending would consider your values antithetical to the Christian values.

      You see, Christianity teaches fairness when we judge others. It teaches that we should be honest and sincere when we report on others. It teaches that even when we are critical of others, we must do so truthfully and without hatred for them.

      I think your public records should mention that Buhari’s driver for more than 15 years is a Christian and that he has always picked Christians as running mates in every election he has contested. Your lopsided public records should also mention that the same man did not even do as little as registering Nigeria into the OIC even as an army dictator who ruled without any checks and balances and therefore had the opportunity to register Nigeria in the OIC if he wanted to. His deputy then was also a Muslim. But it was IBB and Yaradua who registered Nigeria into the OIC membership, and most of you applauded or maintained silence on it whilst also giving excuses that it was only for the economic benfits of being in forum, rather than it’s Islamic significance.

      Look in the mirror, you will see the image of a conscienceless hypocrite! That is not the face of true Christianity!

          Your hypocrisy is easy to spot. You quickly jumped on the driver angle, but totally ignored the choices of his running mates in all the elections he has contested! It’s not surprising.

    I was as patriotic like some of you yrs ago. In fact I was more patriotic than Patriotism. I really wished for the best for my Dear country (as I believed it to be then). But all that changed when Musa was sick…and the most grotesque drama that followed cum the antics of those who would stop at nothing to stop Great Jona from natural & if you like, constitutional ascension to the throne as it were. It then dawned on me that:

    1. Either some regions are more Nigerian than others and/or
    2. Presidency is the exclusive preserve of a certain part of Nigeria

    My attitude & mentality changed. I must henceforth support only a SS and/or SE citizen for presidency and ethnicity was to form the singular basis for my choice. It has not and will NEVER change.

    The argument can rage from now till eternity, but the truth is, Musa himself was 100% culpable in not transmitting that letter. Attah of Ghana remembered. Mahama strolled in naturally. Even Kenyatta with his ‘white eyes’ remembered
    to transmit though momentarily, en route to useless ICC. But in continent Nigeria, a kitchen cabinet held us to ransom…and the President’s purported last address to Nigerians was via a foreign radio. Imagine the insult!

    So, its more of Ethnicity than religion. MKO theory…For example, though Sir Dokubo is Muslim, the largely Christain South South respect him for what he stands for and will vote for him as President his religion notwithstanding.

    If the rest of Nigeria will not accept a SS president, it is utter stupidity to expect the SS&SE to accept others. Great Jona may not be the best, but why must he be replaced ,by the North? So from Benin to Onitsha to Enugu to Owerri to Obudu to Calabar to Brass to Bonny to Warri, you couldn’t find any Presidential material. But you moved to around the Niger & Chad borders to get people…and you want me to accept? You must see v psychiatrist without
    delay. The SS&SE are not allergic to presidency. Nonsense!

    One of the interesting questions the Governor’s statement brings up is whether he has been sharing Rivers money with some people before. It would be useful he gave us how sharing money initiated. We are not unaware that he had previously told us that this lady had stood in his way to develop Rivers state. The particular point had to do with the policy to demolish some properties along river banks and the sort. This is a new dimension to his tirade.
    While we await further ‘revelation’ from this governor whose stock in trade is abusing people, one wonders why he didn’t put in this insult with several others he had hurled at President Jonathan and his wife. Could this be an afterthought or his consistent inventions of the many sins of the President?
    One wonders whether this guy was elected to shout insults on Jonathan until his voice is hoarse. Wouldn’t it make sense that he keeps quiet for once and concentrates on his job?

  • Konkolo

    Here we go again. Nigerians with their religion nonsense. Who cares what religion the candidates represent as long as they are able and ready to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people. We are neither a Christian or Islamic nation. We are so caught up with these imported religions (Christianity & Islam), that we always rob and short-change the people in presenting the rightful/honest candidates. Nigeria has the highest number of Churches/Mosques plus self-ordained Bishops/Imams in the whole universe, yet, the most corrupt country with the most corrupt leaders. Until we do away with these religious sentiments, we will never grow as a nation.

    • justice

      Ordinarily, it shouldn’t matter but this is Nigeria where the absurd is celebrated. The politicians use religion to get to power and the dumb electorates insist on their own based on religious afiliations. It dosen’t matter if the candidate is a dumb rogue who have no idea of elementary governance. This, unfortunately has been the bedrock of our political and economical lives since that fateful amalgamation. I bet you my last kobo that Nigerians will shun any decent, honest and forthright person who comes out to help them out of their miserable lives.

    Buhari does not understand the dynamics of Nigerian politics, especially as it refers to political office spread across the nation. And yet he wants to be president. Buhari’s indifference towards a Muslim-Muslim ticket starkly shows his political naivety, even with the present smudge of dirt that has been painted on the Muslim religion in the wake of the Boko Haram and other idiosyncrasies associated with this religion. He still thinks that his Muslim-Muslim conformation when he was the military head of state still stands in participatory politics of today. Indeed, Buhari is past it and must be bypassed in the APC. If this party would want to make any impression it should shop for a better presidential candidate. As we now see, Buhari is the true face of Boko Haram.

    • Jeckho

      Buhari should go and contest as chairman of his Islamic local government area. He can have a Muslim vice chairman there. He is intellectually deficient. I still wonder what anyone sees in him. Has anyone heard a word about his programs?

    Lagos state government is a prime suspect in financial frauds. All over the state
    there’s more than anecdotal evidence of probable thefts by state government
    officials – in particular, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Raji Fashola – both of whom
    never presented audited public accounts to the residents of Lagos state in the
    past 14 years since 1999.
    Islamism is just a mask – a shibboleth- for stealing.

      [October 23, 2014)

      • Atitebi

        @ Roland:

        Between 2007 and now, Raji Fashola has received more than seven [7] billion U.S dollars
        in federal revenue allocation. He’s also received another 11 billion U.S dollars in internally
        generated revenue in the same period; totalling 18 billion U.S dollars.

        All this money without a single functioning public school or a running city transport to
        show for it today, as the state’s BRT bus system (a pilfered idea) has all but
        collapsed with barely 15% of the BRT bus fleet left, due to ruinous official
        thefts – all within three years of the (shambolic) BRT operation.

        Alhaji Raji Fashola sank Lagos state with his financially un-accountable governance.
        Despite the 18 billion dollars he’s received from 2007 till date, and without
        rendering Lagos state public accounts to the people, Alhaji Raji Fashola said he has
        today incurred a whopping 3.7 billion dollars in debts on the necks of Lagosians.

        Now, taking into account that between 1999 and now, Lagos state earned a gross of
        $40 billion dollars in revenues, nobody in Lagos state today – not even the most rabid
        Islamists in the state government offices – can point to 40-billion-dollar worth of amenities
        or services provided Lagosians. Between Raji Fashola and Bola Tinubu the 40 billion dollars
        was instead split, shared, pocketed and squandered – under the guise of self-owned companies,
        after deducting salaries and the state’s running expenses from the gross total.

        • Damian

          All stolen assets shall be recovered. Political parties, like PDP or APC, are mere abstract hands.
          Political parties have no hands to steal community assets or the legs to run away with the loot.
          Human beings stole Nigeria’s cash and land assets – so, those human beings must be fished out.

          • The Revolutionary

            Mr. Damian,

            Nigerians need clarity of thought. They leave undone that which ought to be done.
            The educated ones amongst them are the worse naive: they abet stealing as rule.
            Nigeria’s civil rights groups then overlook official thefts by those they support for a fee.
            And so do the country’s confused writers and journalists abet official thefts likewise.

            That now complicates Nigeria into a problem resolvable only by overriding deadly force.
            A rational discussion is foreclosed by the stealing ways of the people and their notables.
            Stealing is the elephant in the room in Nigeria. Stealing fosters the violence all around.
            To steal is to deploy violence at election and to defend the loot is to defend against violence.

            Until stealing is brought to the fore as the first national problem, Nigeria is not going anywhere.
            Stealing has destroyed Nigeria and created a consciousness of roguery as the national ethic.
            All public officials since October 1, 1960, are the first suspects, along with their business partners.
            The national task is to bring these official criminals in politicians’ garb to swift and deadly justice.

            @Ahoy Seadog:

            I agree with you, totally. Thieves and victims cannot live together in the same house.

            For Nigerians to live together in peace and happiness two things must happen. Firstly, all stolen wealth must be seized from the thieves, by force, and if the stolen property has been passed to children under a will, the stolen property inherited must be seized in the hands of the children.

            Secondly, the thieves so dis-possessed of stolen property, including their children who received the stolen property, must be given severe punishment – including hanging or public execution – as happened in Ghana.

            In all history, the tree of justice is watered by the blood of rogues and thieves that are put to the sword. Nigeria will not be an exception. Stolen wealth in the hands of thieves undermines law and public morals, corrupts the youths, sets false standards of success, and diverts the rest of society from productive activity into violent crimes.

            if they are not dead, will end up in prison. This is what God is saying.”

            RAJI FASOLA’S INCOMPETENCE AND ITS CONSEQUENCE

            Lagos is badly degrading. Un-informed opinion is all that covers up the rot
            and sets false standards for those entrusted with public treasury to continue
            to ride roughshod over the populace. That’s why Raji Fashola had the
            audacity to declare publicly to all Lagosians that they have no right to
            freedom of information.

            Not even General Sani Abacha – infamous as the worst dictator
            ever – dared say such insulting nonsense to the general public. But what did
            our mushrooming civil rights groups say in retort, let’s even say in pretence
            to upholding their own self-given creed? Nothing but absolute silence in pure
            conspiracy! And, the journalists in Lagos, what did they say? No objection –
            just quiet.

            And how about the self-described civil rights activists and
            constitutional lawyers – what did they say? Nothing – just the same evil
            conspiratorial silence. So, you can see. Anyone wondering when the rains
            started beating Lagosians into a hardscrabble place of illiterates – where
            folks now behead one another in the afternoon at Fadeyi; right in the centre of
            town – must date the time when cash bribes from Alausa secretariat of the Lagos
            state government overrode all journalists and media houses into horses of
            instruction and finished off the scrum of civil and human rights groups;
            including the self-described constitutional lawyers amongst them.

            not joking when we say that both Bola Tinubu and Raji Fashola behind bars for stealing chunks
            of the $40 billion which Lagos state got as revenues between 1999 and now. If we do not bring
            these two criminals to justice, for also refusing to produce accounts when asked in accordance
            with law, the growing youths will begin to believe that stealing is the culture of all Yoruba people.

            The task in 2015 is to reverse all of this mess caused by Raji Fashola’s thievish deeds
            and bring the years of the locust (1999-2014) to justice by recovering all stolen assets
            and jailing the raft of thievish Lagos state officials – from Commissioner to Auditor.

            Raji Fashola is not a thinker but an impulsive person, brash and uncouth, who takes
            un-thinking short cut in reflex action as solution. But short cut reflex can’t solve poverty.
            Trying to sweep poverty under the carpet, by getting rid of poor people, is not governance,

            Bola Tinubu alone got 35 billion Naira in cash paid to him this year by Raji Fashola under a bogus scheme that Raji Fasola called ‘buy back of Lekki tolled Expressway’ which belongs to Lagos state government and was never sold to anybody. So what were the two thieves buying back from each other with sham paperwork just to defraud the people?

          I pity Yoruba Christians because they are un-armed and defenceless, even though in trouble. They
          assume that Boko Haram is just a Hausa/Fulani murder machine. They do not fully understand the concept of global jihad underway.

        You don’t understand Islam. I’m catholic and I can’t claim to know Islam either. However, that point is not that important.

You’re solely here to spread hatred and to try in vain to make excuse for inept government of GEJ. He swore an oath to protect our lives and property and he has woefully failed to live up to the oath he took. All the kidnappers in the East and South South are not muslims. Would you like a Hausa muslim to refer to you as a kidnapper just because you’re from that part of the country? Mr. Man, you need to understand some of these northerners are suffering from same Boko Haram carnage and these people have families just like you. If you have conscience, you need to rethink the statements you make here.
