Awolowo’s wife backs Osinbajo

The wife of late politician and leader, Obafemi Awolowo, has given her support to Yemi Osinbajo, the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, with a call on Nigerians to vote Mr. Osinbajo at the February 14 election.

Mr. Osinbajo is the running mate to Muhammadu Buhari, the former military ruler, who is challenging President Goodluck Jonathan to the top job.

The call came when Mr. Osinbajo paid a visit to the matriarch, Hannah Awolowo, at her Ikenne home.

Mrs. Awolowo expressed her gratitude to God over the choice of Mr. Osinbajo as the running mate of Mr. Buhari and sought the support of the people of Ikenne in particular and Nigerians in general to make the dream comes to fulfilment.

“I am very grateful this morning to see that Yemi Osinbajo is going to higher ground and it is my prayer that he will get there. I urge you all to support his aspiration. God will take you there,” she said.

Earlier in his speech, Mr. Osinbajo eulogized the virtues of the late leader, Obafemi Awolowo, for his contribution to the development of the country, assuring that his party would not derail in carrying on with the his good policies and programmes.

“My choice as the vice-presidential candidate of our party is a rare opportunity for Remoland, Ogun State and Nigeria. It is God’s divine. Awolowo came out of Remoland to become the Premier of the defunct Western region and he did excellently well. It is my utmost believe and prayer that we will do more than him,” Mr. Osinbajo said.

He said he was in Ikenne, his homestead, to receive blessings from the nonagenarian for a successful outcome at the polls come Feburary 14.

He attributed high level of insecurity, unemployment, failure in the power sector and other socio-economic challenges confronting Nigeria to bad leadership, promising that his party would bring about the desired change in all ramifications.

Mr. Osinbajo was accompanied by his wife, Dolapo, his brother, Akin Osinbajo, who was former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in Ogun State, the Iyaloja General of Remoland, Mercy Owolana, a former senator, Olorunimbe Mamora, among others.

The team also paid a courtesy call on the Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland, Michael Sonariwo, and the Awujale and Paramount Ruler of Ijebuland, Kayode Adetona.

Mr. Osinbajo had earlier visited homes of notable sons of the town which include Adeleke Adesina, who is the coordinator of Ikenne’s Peoples Forum and Idowu Sofola.

In his remark, at a town hall meeting, held at Ikenne Town Hall, Mr. Adesina called for support of sons and daughters of the town by voting for Buhari/Osinbajo in the elections.

Mr. Adesina told the gathering which had in attendance members of different political parties that the forum was established to drum their unflinching support for their own, whom he said was a bonafide indigene of the town.

“This is our project. The very day his name was announced as the running mate of Buhari was the very day we formed the Ikenne Peoples Forum, so that we can chart a common front by supporting our son, Professor Osinbajo,” he said.
“The forum is not partisan. It consists of people from different political parties. Our goal is to vote for our son in becoming the number two citizen of this great country. He is God’s appointee and we must all support him. We must support him with our votes and that is why we are starting the campaign from home,” he added.

Similarly, Mr. Mamora, in his address, appealed to indigenes and residents of the town to explore the capacity for rational decision by voting for APC in the forthcoming elections.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT ON VOTER OPTIONS

    A Christian who’s a poodle of Islam is as much a Muslim as a rabid Jihadist.
    Proof of a Christian is if Yemi Osinbajo ever had the guts to defend his faith.

    The facts in public domain today show Yemi Osinbajo as a defender of Islamism
    in Lagos state. He is the only Christian Pastor who’s publicly come out to support
    continuous Muslim rule of Lagos. Yemi Osinbanjo went further to write an essay
    on the internet saying AC/APC is NOT unfair to Christians.

    He stated in his essay that there is no Islamic bias whatsoever in either Action Congress
    or in APC. This Christian Pastor (Yemi Osinbajo) then approved the 100% Muslims APC
    registered as executives with INEC. What’s the difference between Yemi Osinbajo; and,

    a dyed-in-the-wool Jihadist, like Tola Kasali? The only difference is that Tola Kasali
    goes to a mosque, and, Yemi Osinbajo goes to a church – but besides that fact,
    there is no difference at all, insofar as Tola Kasali declares Muslim supremacy,
    and, Yemi Osinbajo agrees to it without demur.

        Hope you’re aware of what is happening in Enugu now, that the Anglican are glamouring for the deputy governor, blaming PDP for giving the governor and deputy to Catholic faith. The result of bringing religion to politics. This is just the same faith. I pray in the years to come we will be able to bear this ugly trend sold to us by this dispensation of religion politics.

        • Dede

            Well, during the genocide people advised Major Mobolaji Johnson to stop harassing Delta Igbo residing in Lagos, but he responded that an Igbo man is an Igbo man no matter from what state.

        A corrupt tree cannot bring forth good fruit. For out of the heart proceed
        evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, and,
        blasphemies. The love of money is the root of all evil; which, while some
        coveted after, they erred from faith and pierced themselves with sorrows.

        For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own
        soul? The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro
        of those that seek death. There are thorns and snares on the path of the crooked.

        Anyone who guards himself prudently will stay far from the crooked.
        Brethren, you shall not steal. Theft entails deceit; and in a heart where
        the spirit of deceit is, there, the spirit of God cannot be.

      @ Ricky,

      I have my own fears too on Yemi Osinbajo because a hood does not make the monk.
      He’s never struck me as a Christian; to talk more of a Pastor, as Bola Tinubu’s stalwart.
      What Christian virtues makes Yemi Osinbajo a follower of Bola Tinubu for 15 years? None!

      Yemi Osinbajo is either looking for money (as Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s right-hand man) or,
      looking for access to public office to feed off the treasury, but not to infuse Christian virtues
      on Nigerian society under the control of a notorious Islamic Jihadist like Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
      The contradiction in Yemi Osinbajo’s politics is too obvious to warrant a benefit of the doubt.

      Christians don’t fight for their faith, they allow God to do his job. If truly you’re a Christian you will allow God to choose by himself and not choose for him. Remember there are many virgins in Israel when he chose Rahab the harlot to do his work of hospitality. You’re not a real Christian but nominal one.

    Is this old dame not Hannah Awolowo, a woman who sat on money as the overall bursar in the West during the Nigerian reign of terror? Her okunrin confiscated Igbo money and handed it over to her to run schools in the West. The old lady went ahead and used my father’s money to supply books, food, and school supplies to all the schools from kindergarten to universities in the West. The lady instantly became rich, her okunrin became super rich, wallahi.

    I thought Forbes would print her name along with Alhaja Alakija as one of the world’s richest dames, what did she do with her ill gotten wealth? Hannah omo Odua won gbe yin oo.

    • Victor Odutola Mayomi

      • Otile

        Hid Hannah not supply food, books, and school materials to all the schools in the West during the reign of terror? Did she have any competition, if so who was her competitor?

        You see I back my own comments with irrefutable facts. But you are now trying to divert the topic to Jonathan. Jonathan as you know did not benefit from Hannah’s supplies or Awo’s free education for his Yoruba tribesmen.

    • Maria

      “wallahi”.. from you? Thought wallahi is the language of boko haram…oh… are you guys the ghosts your masters f00lishly referred to as boko haram?

      • Otile

        Maria, believe it or not boko haram did not invent the word wallahi. The word has been there before Yerima brought in bad sharia which begot boko haram.

        Unbeknown to you is the fact that Jonathan is the master of every Nigerian. If you want to deny reality, that’s your problem.

  • Okey

    For me it is extrembely unfair to use a woman battling with the rigours of advance for publicity stunt. The spokesperson of the Awolowo family has not spoken, until he/she peaks, this stunts amounts to nothing. In fact Dr Akin Osuntokun had earlier predicted this sharad when he wrote:

    “There is tragic irony in the choice of Professor Yemi Osinbajo as the South-west answer to the Muhammadu Buhari
    deficit in Yoruba-land. To be counted as a credential of the nominee would be the fact that he is married to the granddaughter of the late political juggernaut, Chief Obafemi Awolowo. I expect that very soon a much orchestrated campaign visit to Ikenne would materialise where the reinvented Buhari would plant a specially packaged millennia peck (sharia permitting) on Mama HID Awolowo’s century old cheeks. Yet one of the mindless cruelties and victimisation of Awolowo’s political camp by then military head of state, General Muhammadu Buhari, was the seizure of Awolowo’s international passport, which resulted in the consequence of not being able to go for his annual medical check-up for the first time in his adult life (Awolowo died two years later in 1987). In tandem, the residential abode of the political icon in Lagos and Ikenne were besieged and ransacked by Buhari’s security goons.”

    For from the above, it is undoubtful that the Awo clan will endorse a person who had a hand in the untimely death of their patriarch, no mater the later day benevolence from the said person.

    • Jack

      • newvoice404

        That is Okey and Akin Osuntokun’s stock in trade. Always twisting statements and observations and presenting them as facts. But we know better and we are not buying their incompetent and corrupt product regardless of how much skills they employ in discrediting the veritable alternative we have got in Buhari/Osinbajo

        • Okey

          Please, get this from the Master himself. That was a statement made in a very moment of truth without the aim of coming to control govt at the centre.

          from the PUBLIC LIBRARY OF U.S. DIPLOMACY

          Please, hear the Asiwaju of APC

          “6. (C) Turning to the presidential contest, Tinubu disclosed that he does not like President Obasanjo because he contributed to the end of democracy in Nigeria during his tenure as a military president and is now benefiting from that history. That said, Tinubu admitted that he and his party, the Alliance for Democracy, must support Obasanjo. Southwest Nigeria is Yoruba land and the President is Yoruba. Tinubu”s party had no choice since it has not fielded a presidential candidate. Moreover, Obasanjo is the only candidate who stands a chance of blocking his rival, General Muhammadu Buhari, whose ethnocentrism would jeopardize Nigeria”s national unity. Buhari and his ilk are agents of destabilization who would be far worse than Obasanjo. Tinubu and many other governors are therefore implementing a strategy to re-elect Obasanjo, partly in an effort to prevent Sharia from spreading. Tinubu predicted that the President will follow his own course, if re-elected, since he will not need as many friends the second time around.”

          The above has not been denied by he to whom it is credited. From it “sincere,” “honest” and “divisive” characters to the Nigerian project are made obvious. Still, being hard of hearing, sure, will worsen your already visually impaired sight.

    • blackdove

        That’s the more reason why this stunt by APC shouldn’t have been embarked upon at all. Do you expect the woman to chide her grandson in the full glare of the media ? She can only wish him well in his chosen course in that circumstance.

    • newvoice404

      Okey and Akin Osuntokun will never ever tell us what Akin’s biological father and Ladoke Akintola did to Awolowo’s health by persecuting him at home and also conspiring with enemies from outside to jail him. The two ‘skilful’ defenders of GEJ and destroyers of Buhari will not also want us to know that Buhari had stated several times with no one contradicting him ,that the harassment of Awolowo was done by the fifth columnist in his government(without his knowledge) to embarrass Buhari and of course the fifth columnist later overthrew Buhari, ran Nigeria as a den of corruption and satanic falsehood. And its on record that Akin Osuntokun has admitted on several fora that he is a personal friend of the fifth columnist and infact looked up to him as a mentor and also learnt a lesson of maradonic double dealing from him.The so called Okey also still defend the maradona till today, as if he was the best thing that happened to Nigeria till date,of course apart from his new manner from heaven-GEJ!

      Okey and Akin Osuntokun have vowed that Mama Awolowo and indeed Awolowo family will never support Osinbajo and infact on their way of taking their daughter away from Osinbajo because of Tinubu. How they came about that laughable conclusion is still a funny joke to many of us. Well, mercenaries always think they know best and can change white to black at will . But they are shamed and shocked now with what Awolowo family has done and this is just the beginning, Because we know that Awolowo even in his grave will always be happy with those that are competent and disciplined enough to want progress for yorubas and indeed Nigeria. I will repeat again that Okey and Akin Osuntokun are only clever by half in their self ‘skillful’ delusion about the happenings in Nigeria and they will continue to be …….

      • Okey

        The Chief did not die in their hands. But your man traumatized him to no end, ransacked his house, seized his International Passport, prevented the man from attending to his health overseas. And as a result the man died prematurely.

        Would you hit your head on the stone if you get to know tthat Buharu’s military junter jailed more opposition members, especially the UPN, than those of NPN that ran the govt ? Ajasin was tried three times and found “not guilty” three times by the tribunal, but your man insisted he must be jailed. Come out of your petty hatred for the truth and stop being a living-dead.

            There are millions of ignoramus like you.

            Check the info below and hopefully u will come back and not disappear with shame as your fellow e-rats.

            1. Formation
            OIC was established in 1969 through a Saudi Arabian initiative, following the burning of the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, which was considered an attack on the Muslim world. The Headquarters of the organisation are in Jeddah. The first meeting of the organization was held in Morocco in 1969.

            2. Gen Yakubu Gowon
            Yakubu Gown sent a Nigerian delegation as an observer led by Alhaji Abubakar Gumi to the OIC in its first meeting in 1969 in Morocco. Despite opposition. He Gowon, a Christian from Plateau State took the first set by sending Gumi to represent “Nigeria Muslims”.

            3. General Muritala Muhammed to Gen Muhammadu Buhari Regimes
            The administrations of Muritala/Obasanjo, Obasanjo/Yaradua, Shagari/Ekweme and Buhari/Idiagbon refused to sign to Nigeria’s full membership of the OIC despite pressure and intense lobbying from Saudi Arabia. They maintained that Nigeria is a secular state and not an Islamic country.

            4. General Ibrahim Babangida
            French news agency reported that Nigeria has been admitted into the organization as its 46th member in January 1986. Ebitu Ukiwe from Abia State, then a navy commodore and second in command to the then military President, Ibrahim Babangida, had it rough with that administration when he declared publicly that the decision to join OIC was not discussed at any level of government. Mr. Ukiwe’s denial of the decision reportedly led to his forceful exit from government.

            5. General Sani Abacha
            Maintained Nigeria’s membership despite calls for withdrawal from various groups including Christian Leaders.

            6. Obasanjo/Atiku Abubakar
            At the G-8 Islamic countries in Egypt in 2001, Obasanjo identified himself carrying Nigeria as an Islamic country by attending that meeting. His attendance cemented Nigeria’s Status as a member of the OIC and an Islammic State.

            7. Yaradua/Jonathan Administration Renewed Nigeria OIC Membership
            On April 11, 2012 President Umaru Yaradua renewed Nigeria’s membership the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC), the same way IBB registered with the organisation in 1986, the Nigerian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Abdullahi M. Garba Aminchi, quietly visited Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) and signed the new OIC charter on behalf of the Nigerian government.

            Although this event was published on OIC’s website the same day and widely reported in other Middle East media, it was not reported in the Nigerian media. The Nigeria Foreign Minister as at then Chief Ojo Maduekwe refused to speak on the matter.

            8. Jonathan/Sambo Administration
            There have been calls by religious groups and others to withdraw Nigeria’s OIC membership. As at this day, Nigeria remains a full member of the OIC, and the President in its capacity appoints delegates to represent Nigeria in OIC.

            ISLAMIC SUMMIT 2013, HELD IN CAIRO
            President Ebele Goodluck Jonathan led Nigeria’s delegation to the OIC Islamic Summit in 2013. Other delegates are…H.E. Dr. Nuruddeen Muhammed Minister of State II for Foreign Affairs, Amb Hassan Tukur (Foreign Affairs Minister), Amb. Abdullah Omaki, Abubakar Sheikh Bunu, Mr. Tijjani Hammanjodu, Mr. Suleiman Sani and Mr. Manir Ibrahim

        “In Nigeria, the pauperized many have sent a memo to the
        criminally-rich few: ‘We will not allow you to enjoy your ill-gotten gains in
        peace. We will hound you and pursue you everywhere you go.
        When you buy your Hummers, we will snatch them.

        When you send your children to expensive schools, we will kidnap them
        When you retreat to your billion-naira homes, you will have to sleep with
        one eye open. With every knock, you will panic and tremble,
        fearing it could be nemesis at the door”.

    Let me help clarify some of the issues. On this platform I have shown how the online media campaign of Mr. Goodluck Jonathan works. It works through the coordination of three ASO ROCK aides. They are Bastard Doyin Okugbe, Reuben Abati and Reno Omokri. They operate through all kinds of fictitious names. Some are historic. Some are contemporary. The historic ones are (i) Mani_kay (ii) mpitikwelu, (iii) emmanuel, (iii) akpos1, (iv) es3, (v) Gideon Orkar. The more contemporary ones i.e. newly minted and created names are (i) Bala Atama, (ii) Tawanda (iii) the “truth”, (iv) Otile , (v) oleku (vi) redeem, (vii) deacon.(viii) Nawa Aba Biafran (ix) Proudly deltan
    Mr. Jonathan’s online media group has all kinds of strategy. But one thing which is constant is that they will never campaign on the two issues that will decide the 2015 elections. These two issues are (i) ETHICS and (ii) COMPETENCE. They know their candidate-Goodluck Jonathan FAILED on these two. Because they are weak on ISSUES they fall back on three things (i) abuse, (ii) religious divide (iii) tribal divide. This is why as APC was emerging they quickly slammed it as an “Islamic” party to occupy what they dubiously imagine is the” christian” electoral space, when they know that this is dubious and evil. Now with the facts on ground on the equally mixed Christian/Muslim membership of APC, the wide acceptance of Buhari by Christians all over Nigeria on purely ethical grounds, the emergence of Osinbajo as the VP, they PDP and Mr. Jonathan’s group do not have the false religious argument against APC anymore. With this loss what will they do? Yes they will turn to DIVERSION AND BLACKMAIL. The evidence for that is found in all their posts under this story about Osinbajo’s visit to Mrs Awolowo. The question you must ask is this: This story is about Osinbajo’s visit to Mrs. Awolowo, what have religion, religious divide, religious hatred as displayed by Mr. Jonathan’s online campaigner got to do with a simple visit? I am sure the Jonathan people cannot answer this question. This is why we should pity them. They are beneath intellectual and moral contempt. What to do? Be ready to use your vote to VOTE OUT President King Goodluck Jonathan Nebuchadnezzar of Aso Rock come February 2015. Pray , let us end the Goodluck Jonathan corrupt and divisive way of doing things in NIgeria. Let Nigeria rise again after we exit the corrupt regime of Goodluck Jonathan

Can you inform Nigerians about the relevance of what your group have written on this paltform and the visit of Mr. Osinbajo to Mrs. Awolowo? This way you will show some intelligible conversation rather than your drug filled responses. So tell us Reno Omokri na Tawanda.

          Father Mbaka is at it again. In 2011, the same Fr. Ejike Mbaka said Dr Chris Ngige should step down for Dr Dora Akunyili; that any any attempt by Nigige to contest against Akunyili would “surely” result in a wasted effort.

          Now, how did Maka know that the bird that refused to fly, if any, was assigned to Jonathan by the Holy Spirit ? Is Jonathan bigger, healthier and more rubust than his challengers ? What is Fr Mbaka’s bird was diseased already. I ask this question because I was in his church in Enugu in 2011 when the same Father Mbaka told his congregation that the spirit revealed to him that Dr Chris Ngige will lose the 2011 Senatorial election to Dr Dora Akunyili (now late). Mbaka told everybody in that service, particularly residents of Anambra State, that that they better cast their vote for Mrs Akunyili because, according to Mbaka, a vote to Ngige is a wasted vote. Any member of Father Mabaka’s church that attended his parish services in 2011 will corroborate what I am saying here because, “Ngige will fail in the Senatorial contest” was a sing-song by Mbaka at the time. So, Mbaka’s diseased-ridden-bird-led-prediction will surely go the way of his similar daydream “prophesy” against Ngige.

          • tundemash

            And yet your HipoPiatience went kneeling down in front of Father Mbaka for prayers ?

            Fr. Mbaka recently anointed Mrs. Patience Jonathan as the next First Lady in 2015. The First Lady, and the Deputy Senate President Senator Ike Ekweremadu worshipped at the Adoration Ministry where the First Lady admitted that she experienced “a spiritual rebirth.”

(2) Lagosians will be freed from the yoke and chains of tax without mercy, for normal tax without leakages into private pocket will be more than enough to run Lagos (3) Unborn Lagosians will be delisted from debt hang-over with good husbandry of resources which channels both IGR and Federal Allocation to state development, not the present shitstem where IGR goes to the god-father leaving only Federal Allocation to personnel and infrastructure. Sure, there must Change in 2015.

            Okey, you are a liar from the pit of hell!! Fr. Mbaka NEVER said that “a vote to Ngige is a wasted vote”. On the contrary, Fr. Mbaka admonished and warned Dr. Akunyili NOT to contest the senate elections. Furthermore, Fr. Mbaka’s Acolytes, like Brother DonMary will tell you that they received a message that they must do ALL in their power to secure that Senate seat for Dr. Ngige. Brother DonMary who is from Agulu was wedded by Fr. Mbaka. I have given you names and locations so that you may verify this piece of information. You are just a propagandist and liar. Produce the video if indeed he said such. Look, Dora Akunyili lives behind Fr. Mbaka’s church. Dora was very close to Fr Mbaka and when she fought the fake drug people she had Fr. Mbaka giving her spiritual backing for it was a just cause/fight. The moment she dabbled into active politics and sang “papa anata aya yo” for Obasanjo, was when she crossed over. The climax was rebranding Goodluck Jonathan to “Ebele Azikiwe” and presenting him as “onye Igbo”. Tufiakwa!! An Izon man will never accept he is Igbo but Goodluck Ebelemiwari accepted the “igbonisation” of his name by Dora, just to get the Igbo votes. In hind sight, we now see why Fr. Mbaka gave Dora the message that the Senate seat was not hers. Please do not ever use the NGIGE name for you dirty work. It is a good brand that we all cherish. How many Igbo people can play opposition politics for as long as he has without capitulating to “stomach infrastructure”? Tell me who has …Peter Obi? Ben Obi? Arthur Eze? Annie Okonkwo? Former CBN Governor Charles Soludo? Name them…tell me which one of them has not gone from party to party in search of “greener pastures”? Please stop spreading falsehood in the forums.

            Bunkum ! Yours is a twist from the deepest part of hell. Not even Fr Ejike Mbaka will deny his sing-song in 2011 that “Ngige will lose to Akunyili” and “do not vote Ngige.”

    After thorough survey, I’ve come to realise that majority, if not all of Jonathan’s supporters are in one way or the other linked to him, bigots, sycophants or fools.Linked to him in the sense that – They are either PDP members or have PDP members as parents, or relatives or those who work with or for Jonathan who definitely don’t want their means of livelihood to be cut-short.Ethnic bigots who are from the South-South or South-East and support Jonathan basically for that reason.Religious bigots – who are Church-goers (not Christians) and want to vote. for him just cos he’s a fellow church-goer.Or sycophants – theses are the majority actually. People who get rice, groundnut oil, or 5yards of ankara from PDP/TAN and their agents and feel convenient with it. They know the truth but won’t own-up cos ofwhat they’ll eat.Or fools – who actually see Jonathan as the best man for the job just bcos they are bereft of ideas. They talk as if they are not with us in this nation.All of these sets, instead of telling us what Jonathan us for the nation, they attack other candidates.So dear Jonathanian, check deep inside you, you belong to one of these groups, even though you wont own-up.

        Without meaning to disparage the Yoruba, my objective reading of things is that SW’s people’s political undoing in Nigeria consists in their narrow tinwantiwa, parapo style of political orientation…
        From AG to UPN to AD to AC to ACN and now to APC, its been tinwantiwa politics…i.e. regional/parochial politics…
        The fatal pride of many a Yoruba has consistently seen them politically pitched against, rather integrate, with the political aspirations of other southern groups, from the Igbo to the south-south minorities…
        Nor do they believe in Hausas, either..
        If you think the Yoruba believe in Buhari, think twice…
        Yorubas only believe in themselves!!!!
        In the current unfolding of events, the Yoruba subliminally believe that they are only using Buhari; that in tagging along with him, they might fortuitously get into Aso Rock come 2019 and produce the president then since Buhari would have been too old and tired to continue 2019 hence…
        But the Yoruba who think they are using the Hausa, don’t even know that power-fixated Hausa/Fulani is by far smarter, and are rather using them and would surely dump them in time..
        I hear them say that they are guided by issues..

        To win in an electoral contest, every opposition political party in the world do exactly the same thing:
        1. Whip propaganda to a frenzy…i.e heat up the polity with foreboding projections of doom and gloom if the ruling party continues in office..
        2. Agitate the electorate with mental poisoning against the ruling party..
        3. Try hard to convince the electorate that the ruling party has enslaved them and made their lives the hardest..
        4. Try hard to associate all their troubles, both personal and collective, with the ruling party and convince them that their heavy burden can only be lifted if they (opposition) are voted into power, while kicking out the incumbent…
        5. The opposition projects a holier-than-thou messianic toga…
        And APC has been adept in doing all this…
        Nevertheless, be it the ruling or the opposition, politicians are politicians (prostitutes)…
        They play on the small brain of the masses…
        Who ever told you that APC represents change to your economic fortunes is lying through his/her teeth…
        Nigeria’s problem is fundamental; it is a problem of foundations!
        GEJ got it right by responding to the clamour for a National Conference…
        It is supremely important that Nigerians returned him with a mandate on him to see through the implementation of the CONFAB report…
        But a vote for APC is a vote for pulling the hands of the clock backwards for Nigeria!!!!!!

      Were you in your mother’s womb in 2011 when Yorubas joined others to vote for GEJ and not PDP against Buhari? Yorubas being detribalised gave GEJ opportunity to prove his worth and if he had developed the country the way Awo developed Western Region, GEJ would have received another round of support. The same detribalised Yorubas will vote for Buhari and not APC in 2015 to prove his worth and take us out of the mess GEJ dragged us into. Does that make sense to your bigoted and racist mind?

      • Etomi

        I actively lived through the period ahead the 2011 election…
        Most of my Yoruba friends entered arguments with me and challenged me to bet on who would win that election…
        Some of them took bets on their salary that GEJ could never win that elections..
        Many of them insulted and thoroughly despised GEJ just as they do even today!!!!
        Suddenly, TINUBU sold out on them in an overnight furtive move…
        According to Obasanjo, Tinubu made a 360 degrees volt-face and took the rest Yoruba people along with him in an unobtrusive gambit when upon being financially induced, he suddenly back-pedaled on his support for the ACN presidential candidate, Nuhu Ribadu…..
        Thus, whereas Tinubu’s party in de facto terms did field Ribadu as its presidential candidate, in de jure terms GEJ was its presidential candidate at the eve of that election..
        Tinubu would refuse to openly support Ribadu or canvass electoral following for him (unlike the current run of things with Buhari), which left Ribadu a political orphan in that election, for his conscience had been bought with cheap bribe….
        Thus the seeming SW support for GEJ in 2011 was only by default and not indeed…

        • Kool & the gang

          So Tinubu overnight and less than 24hrs to election was able to persuade or convince or even “bribe” majority of Yorubas to vote for GEJ? Tinubu must be a miracle worker because it is not on record that he made a regional broadcast that influenced Yorubas. I think I will leave you to keep living in your cuckoo world of delusion but take time to think that Tinubu who already knew the mind of his people was just a smart Alec if indeed he was financially induced in 2011 to reap where he did not sow. Majority of Yorubas voted for GEJ in 2011 to my dismay on religious and ethnic based on the big propaganda waged against Buhari as former military dictator and supposed jihadist. Yorubas have now realised their mistake after almost 6 years of a clueless , inept, corrupt and purposeless government of GEJ. Few of us predicted in 2011 for this to happen when we insisted that a vote for GEJ is a vote for toxic PDP. We were proved right. Please cast your only vote for GEJ and stop insulting the sensibilities of Yorubas.

          • Kool & the gang

            You do not understand Yorubas and their political mindset. Tinubu is a political godfather like so many others. He has enjoyed goodwill because he fought OBJ to a standstill and took the lead to deliver Yorubas from the PDP rampage in 2007. Tinubu will never go against the common wish of his people, otherwise he will fall from grace to grass. That explains why he backed out of support for Ribadu and went for GEJ in 2011 after reading the handwriting on the wall. Similarly, Tinubu is smart enough to read the handwriting on the Yoruba wall in 2015. He has no choice except he wants to be irrelevant as Ekiti turned out for him. OBJ failed to become a godfather because he worked against the interests of his people and has no home base support. Nuff said.

      I know the yorubas. I dwelt amongst them. Your assessment of the yorubas is beclouded with either bitterness of insufficient information. Look at their land from Lagos to Ogun, through Oyo, Osun, Ekiti,Ondo, Kwara and some of their towns in Kong. These people are the most cosmopolitan tribe in our entire nation. They are the most detribalised and they never allow themselves to be dragged into tribal arguments. It takes a tribal warlord to see tribalism.

      They have applied their resources in the most appropriate ways. Look at their towns and villages. Are we not receiving the same allocation from the same centre? Of what benefit has being in the majority served us? All we do is build mansion in our villages without roads to get there and think only of our own households. If they are like us we will not be here.

  • Prophet Isa

    YEMI OSINBAJO AND THE REST OF US

    A Christian who’s a poodle of Islam is as much a Muslim as a rabid Jihadist.
    Proof of a Christian is if Yemi Osinbajo ever had the guts to defend his faith.

    The facts in public domain today show Yemi Osinbajo as a defender of Islamism
    in Lagos state. He is the only Christian Pastor who’s publicly come out to support
    continuous Muslim rule of Lagos. Yemi Osinbanjo went further to write an essay
    on the internet saying AC/APC is NOT unfair to Christians.

    He stated in his essay that there is no Islamic bias whatsoever in either Action Congress
    or in APC. This Christian Pastor (Yemi Osinbajo) then approved the 100% Muslims APC
    registered as executives with INEC.

    What’s the difference between Yemi Osinbajo; and, a dyed-in-the-wool Jihadist, like Tola Kasali?
    The only difference is that Tola Kasali goes to a mosque, and, Yemi Osinbajo goes to a church –
    but besides that fact, there is no difference at all, insofar as Tola Kasali declares Muslim supremacy,
    and, Yemi Osinbajo supinely agrees to it without demur for his own personal benefits.

      Can you tell us how far Jonathan, the Jesus of OTOUEKE has gone in defending the hundreds of Christians killed by boko haram and their churches destroyed by the sect. All Jonathan is doing is simply watching helplessly and even claimed that his administration has been treating boko haram with kid gloves! Christianity should not be use by any reasonable person to defend failure. We need somebody that will bring back our girls, land and dignity of our gallant soldiers! The present C in C has failed.

A dictator is always a dictator. The havoc that dictatorships wreaked on Nigeria will not be forgotten. Buhari was a godfather of Nigerian dictatorships. Buhari has no moral and constitutional rights to an elective office. Buhari will be rejected again.

      • Buhari is without a doubt not the alternative. After 40+ years of mediocre military dictatorships, this is the mess we inherited. Buhari was a coauthor of this rut. Democracies built the strongest world economic superpowers. Buhari was antidemocratic. Once a Dictator always a Dictator. Chameleon can only change its colors, it will remain a chameleon.
        It will take more decades to rebuild the rut created by Buhari and his cotravellers.
        Let his thugs and pedophiles kidnap all our children and women, Nigerians will continue to reject Buhari again and again.

          We already have something worst than a rot created by Jonathan, the lost of innocent lives and Nigerian territory to boko haram. No sane country will want to continue with failed commander in chief.

Let them unleash their thugs and pedophiles to kidnap our children and women in the name of jihad. Buhari will never get Nigerians vote. We will rebuild Nigeria from the rot Buhari and his mediocre cohorts created.

          The same Mediocre military built the nations refineries and other national edifices which has no equal up to date. Those who want GEj in office are the people who are benefitting from the cover of haplessness he provides.

          • All we are saying is that Nigeria won’t return to the executions of Nigerians with retroactive draconian decrees and without due process. Nigerians do not want to return to queing for hours to obtain essential commodities with soldiers ‘kobokos’ on their backs. We will never forget the desecration of Pa Awolowo’s home and seizure of his passport. We will not forget the humiliation of Oni of Ife and Ado Bayero by the dictator. We will remember the imprisonments of Pa Ajasin, Onabanjo, Prof Ambrose Ali, Emeka Ojukwu and our able journalists.
            Nigerians will continue to deliver judgement by rejecting the dictator at the polls.

  • Etomi

    To win in an electoral contest, every OPPOSITION political party in the world do exactly the same thing:
    1. Whip propaganda to a frenzy…i.e heat up the polity with foreboding projections of doom and gloom if the ruling party continues in office..
    2. Agitate the electorate with mental poisoning against the ruling party..
    3. Try hard to convince the electorate that the ruling party has enslaved them and made their lives the hardest..
    4. Try hard to associate all their troubles, both personal and collective, with the ruling party and convince them that their heavy burden can only be lifted if they (opposition) are voted into power, while kicking out the incumbent…
    5. The opposition projects a holier-than-thou messianic toga…
    And APC has been adept in doing all this…
    Nevertheless, be it the ruling or the opposition, politicians are politicians—prostitutes!!
    They seduce and play on the small brain of the masses…
    Who ever told you that APC represents change to your economic fortunes is lying through his/her teeth…
    Nigeria’s problem is fundamental; it is a problem of foundations!
    GEJ got it right by responding to the clamour for a National Conference…
    It is supremely important that Nigerians returned him with a mandate on him to see through the implementation of the CONFAB report..
    The solution is neither in APC nor PDP…
    The solution is in RESTRUCTURING NIGERIA TO REFLECT TRUE FEDERALISM!!!!

  • The Questioner

    Professor Yemi Osinbajo; Is this Perjury or not?

    Last December, General Buhari stated in his affidavit: “I am the above-named person
    and deponent to this affidavit therein. All my academic qualifications documents (as filled
    in my presidential form, President APC/001/2015) are currently with the Secretary,
    Military Board, as of the time of presenting this affidavit. The affidavit is made in good faith
    and for record purpose
    .”

    But the Nigerian Army today issued an official rebuttal, saying:
    “.the Army does not keep the certificates of any serving; or,
    retired officer or soldier
    .” In consequence, General Buhari
    is NOT allowed by law to set up any other alibi on whether he is
    academically qualified to run in the 2015 presidential election.
    The preclusive effect of his rebutted alibi is that he does not have
    the required minimum education to be placed on the ballot paper.

    The question arises: On what basis did INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega, clear Buhari to run in 2011?
    An answer to this simple question will set the ball rolling. Were the papers Buhari submitted in 2011 forged?
    Did General Buhari submit academic credentials in the three [3] previous elections, beginning in 2003?
    Were all those previous papers he submitted (if any) forged and faked to enable him contest, unlawfully?

      Why waste your time, my friend? Since year 1999 has Yemi Osinbajo ever

      Of course not! So, how come you now suddenly expect him to change, and,
      become a truth-speaking fellow on APC Islamic party matters? Look, don’t be
      naive, a leopard can’t change its skin. Yemi Osinbajo simply wants to be a

    The director of public relations of the Nigerian Army, Brigadier Olaleye Lajide has confirmed that they have Retired Muhammadu Buhari military records like other retired Military officer and not his Academic records.

    Brigadier Lajide said that the Nigerian Army is in possession of all records of serving, retired and deceased officers since its inception and officers are supposed to keep original of their academic certificates.

    Against what Sahara reporters posted this afternoon, the Army reaffirmed that General Muhammadu Buhari’s original Academic records are not with them.
    Brigadier Olaleye Lajide said that, “the original certificates of every officers are with them and not with any military unit”.

    A week after the Presidential candidates credentials were publically displaced by INEC, there have been demand my Nigerian for Buhari who was reported to have not attended Secondary school to present the certificates he claimed on his affidavit.

    For clarification purposes, the Army have Buhari’s Military records as expected by what Nigerians are requesting from the former military dictator is his academic records which he claimed are with the Military board.WHAT A SHAME

    Lagos state justice system is as bad as ever – corrupt and almost sluggishly useless.
    Yemi Osinbajo made no impact to salvage this wrecked non-system as the Lagos state
    Commissioner for Justice but was rather naive to think that ‘justice’ is about procedures
    or multi-court, or staffing the Lagos High Court with more Judges – but none of those
    steps is near the meaning of ‘justice’. If Yemi Osinbajo lacks clarity of thought on ‘justice’
    that should be within his professional understanding, one can’t expect him to understand
    foreign policy, to be honest.
