Sunday 24 April 2016


Over the years, diverse views and opinions about a place called Nigeria have been shared and discussed by different people worldwide. Depending on the side your tent is pitched when the discussion is about Nigeria, the guarantee is that such a discourse will be infinite and it will sordidly end with many unprintable names about Nigeria. Just like discussing religion and politics, an infinite discussion. Nigeria is a country contrived by the British and bequeathed the northern Nomads/Fulani to take charge of. Fifty-six years after this ''.....mere geographical expression'' (Nigeria's) flag independence, different types of tyrants have been in charge of her affairs and underdevelopment.

31st of March 2015, Nigeria and the world went agog when a nomad from the dusty north and a professor of law won the presidential election. Thus far, Nigeria is the only place in the world where educated people are ruled by a nomad. Issues surrounding Buhari's academics qualifications were once raised during his campaign for the presidency. Astonishingly, Buhari's highest educational attainment was a mere high school/secondary school and this academic feat was endorsed by renowned professors.


Buhari was even ashamed of publicly displaying this when questioned to provide proofs that he even attended a secondary school. Anyway, what do you expect from a nomad? He flaunted his herds of cows in his assets declaration. Thereby, sending the message to all the self-acclaimed educated people that a nomad is here to rule you and I have chosen one of you (professors) as my errand boy. What a shame on education and civility!

Over the years, governance has proven to be an act alien to nomads in Nigeria. Buhari had always wanted to rule but not govern Nigeria. Any opposing views and opinions should not be tolerated. This ideology was bestowed on the Department of State Services (DSS) and other security outfits in Nigeria. To show the extent of the wickedness embedded in these northern nomads, innocent people of Akwa Ibom were the first victim of Buhari's attack against the people he rules. NAPALM bomb was used on innocent Biafrans in Akwa Ibom. Thereafter followed the incessant illegal abductions, incarcerations, and killings of Biafrans. Nnamdi Kanu's abduction is a case study.

Questions surrounding the abduction of Nnamdi Kanu by Buhari still remain unanswered. How can freedom of speech, expression and gathering be a crime in a civilized clime? Buhari believes that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu is here to topple his government just as he ousted the democratically elected government of President Shehu Shagari in December 1983. Nnamdi Kanu's illegal abduction, detention, and torture thus far are pointers to why a nomad should not govern a country.

 All sorts of lies against the IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu have been peddled through some media houses, human rights organizations and even some acclaimed Biafrans working for the APC government e.g Dr. Dozie Ikedife and Billie Human Rights Initiatives. These people are bent on doing anything to fetch crumbs from the table of Buhari. However, it is not a surprise that these nomads devoid of civility continue using these self-acclaimed educated people as a stooge in carrying out their nefarious acts.

Meanwhile, the killing of Biafrans continues and Buhari has vowed to continue the killing. One expect that civilized people in a country should call these menace to order. Instead, people overlook all these ills meted on innocent Biafrans. Presently, what Nnamdi Kanu said years ago about the Fulani herdsmen is at fulfillment. The well-publicised land grabbing bill ''grazing reserve bill'' which is about to become a law is a testament to Nnamdi Kanu's innocence. He said it will happen, and now it is being witnessed. I believe that civilized people should condemn these menaces, instead, they seem not to bother about these ills.


Biafrans have shown and will continue to show that the tenacity of mind and purpose is a force that can never be defeated. The IPOB under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu is buoyed to pursue the restoration of Biafra to any extent the laws permits. The IPOB has never been deterred by the agents of darkness and confusion within and without. Is this not a critical case of misgovernance that a government overlooks the Fulani invaders that kill and maim at ease and instead pursuing a peaceful people? The Nigerian government sponsoring a legal suit against the IPOB at the Hague is a challenge the IPOB is willing to welcome. That will as well help in portraying the decadence we in the country's judicial system we have been talking about all these while.


Conclusively, it is pertinent to inform the public and all lovers of sound and critical reasoning that a country that has a killer/nomad as her president, seconded by a professor is meant to ''go to hell in a handbasket.'' Sound minds, intellectuals, technocrats and meaningful people should not watch and silent while the deterioration continues. A nomad is in charge of Nigeria and nomads have dominated our lands, thereby increasing the forceful and illegal abductions, maimings and killings.

For how long shall this continue before people realize that Buhari means harm for all? This is a clarion call to educationalists, professionals, technocrats, legal practitioners etc to lend their voices to the condemnation of these menaces and public display idiocy, nuisance and lack of etiquette by the Nigerian government, representatives, the DSS and some Biafran saboteurs. Hence, their educational prowess and dexterity should be questioned. ''Evil prevails when good men fail to act.''
