How Onnoghen exposed the corruption of Buhari

Sir: If you read Prof. Emmanuel Bolaji Idowu (of blessed memory) in-and-out, as I did, you will find in his Olódùmarè: God in Yoruba Belief that he is skeptical about the claim that the Yoruba believe in reincarnation, wondering how the ancestors/ancestresses who are supposed to be in the ancestral world can be said to have come back as Babatunde (Father has come again) or Yetunde (Mother has come again), etc. He would have been relieved to read my findings from undiluted Yoruba traditionalists that those names are only consolatory names given to children born immediately after the death of a grandfather or grandmother, respectively.

No, my African Ancestral Heritage in Christian Interpretations (in More Books, Amazon, etc) is not merely on reincarnation but on how ancestral veneration in Yoruba land compares with veneration of saints in the Catholic Church, which was my PhD thesis, and my post doctoral researches on African ancestral heritage and African Christian Theology, exposing the advocates and opponents of the latter.

The Yoruba say when you are digging a pit for your enemy, do not make it to be too deep, in case you fall into it yourself. No, traditional Africans were not more foolish than Christians and Muslims, theologically, philosophically and scientifically, but the hidden schemes which Christian and Islamic missionaries were using to domesticate peoples of the world in the name of God; what Christians call Incarnate God, similar to Muslims who are claiming that an Angel dictated the Quran to Prophet Muhammad, etc. But, what I am saying is that, the embattled Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, was not known to be corrupt until Nigeria’s elections are around the corner. The President, General Muhammadu Buhari (GMB) and his cohorts then sought and found the secrets of Onnoghen. Then some other people started reading in-between the lines and saying rightly that due process was not followed in the approach to dethroning Onnoghen.

When the Vice-president, Yemi Osinbajo got up and excused himself and his boss (GMB), claiming ignorance of the travail of Onnoghen, that is what the Yoruba call, ayé (people of this world!; in ordinary parlance, ayé or ayé yí, means this world).
Prof. Oyeniran Abioje wrote from University of Ilorin.

Because there is no honesty of purpose in the unmasking of Onnoghen, GMB and his cohorts have been going from one blunder to another. And finally, GMB enthroned one of his co-plotters, Justice Tanko Mohammed in place of Onnoghen. Both Onnoghen and Mohammed are now in the net of Nigeria’s National Judicial Council (NJC) that should have been involved ab initio, under normal circumstances. GMB’s greediness cannot be seen better than in the fact that he doubles himself as the Petroleum Minister; increased fuel price from N87 to N145; and he is recovering looted funds without accountability for anything to anybody.

If GMB is not corrupt, how could the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation be taking contracts to him to sign in his sick bed in London after handing over power to Osinbajo? GMB has used presidential power over Onnoghen, in the same way that Monica Osage used feminine power over Richard Akindele. Yes, Stephen Akindele was my primary school mate, but Richard is not from our Iwereile village. What matters is that we are all human beings and that the treachery and dishonesty/corruption of GMB have been exposed in his pursuit of Onnoghen. Yes, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi should be voted-for, because they will pursue peace for progress and stability of Nigeria, away from carnage and economic destruction, 2009 till date.
