Is Buhari preparing for bloodbath over Sowore?


Sir: Before the emergence of the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, and Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan who was his deputy and later his successor, the problem facing Nigeria was predominantly that of corruption, but Yar’Adua and Jonathan added severe insecurity, as they were bent on eradicating the Boko Haram Islamic sect-community of men, women, and children that did not attack anybody until attacked, and Jonathan took undue advantage of the death of Yar’Adua to truncate rotational presidency, and the current President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (GMB) added protection of the Fulani herdsmen terrorists and is bent on eradicating the Shiites.

Abuse of power is thus responsible for the prevailing insecurity in Nigeria. Governmental terrorism is encountering counter-terrorism. The Yoruba say a child who would prevent the mother from sleeping would not sleep; otherwise, the mother too would sleep. If Boko Haram and the Shiites must not live, Nigeria will never know peace and progress.

Government has been preoccupied with war, importation of warplanes and sophisticated weapons, leading to incessant carnage and economic destruction of Nigeria. The root of the problem is traceable to 1979 when the Fulani Muslim imperialists insisted that the Constitution must not stipulate Nigeria as a secular state. Afterward, the late President Shehu Shagari, an agent of the Fulani Muslim imperialists like Yar’Adua and GMB started designing the new capital, Abuja, as if it were a Muslim capital town. GMB who overthrew him as a military head of state in 1983 was accused of trying to get Nigeria registered as a member of the Organization of Islamic Countries (OICs), notwithstanding that the Constitution prohibits “state religion”. Nigeria rulers are generally lawless and lack developmental focus but ethnic bigotry and religious favoritism. Ultimately common Nigerians are exploited but tamed by Christian and Islamic indoctrinations.


Armed bandits are mushrooming due to the worsening economic situation and you would have expected GMB to resign honorably. But is he honorable? Are his supporters, including Pastor Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Ahmed Tinubu, Adams Oshiomhole, Samuel Lalong, Chris Ngige, et al, who are insensitive to the carnage and economic destruction of Nigeria honorable? Are Nigeria’s legislators honorable? To what extent are university teachers honorable, or are they also agents of Islamic and Christian imperialisms? That is the problem. Public academic institutions and even the Army and the Police are Christianized and Islamized. Any wonder Nigeria rulers are getting away without bitter criticisms from all necessary quarters? Is Omoyele Sowore the criminal or those sinking Nigeria into deeper Islamic and Christian imperialisms against the Constitution that prohibits state religion?

Is Sowore the criminal or GMB who is protecting the Fulani herdsmen terrorists, perpetuating and widening the carnage and economic destruction of Nigeria? Yes, it is all food for thought, and nothing short of revolution can solve the crises created by the Fulani Muslim imperialists. Teach your children about unity, peace, and morality in African Traditional Religion (ATR) and culture. Human sacrifice is worse in Islam and Christianity than in ATR where it was only marginal. Purveyors of Islam and Christianity would wage war and use cajolery to enforce the spread of their religions, thereby committing genocide and economic destruction, as in the war against Boko Haram, 2009 till date. Telling GMB to beef up security misses the point if it is not a deliberate distraction. The starting point is to allow Muslim minorities to live, including Boko Haram, the Shiites, and any other one. It is criminal and unrealistic to be seeking security in the face of injustices.
