Wednesday 13 February 2019



It is quite imperative that we take a critical look at the chronicle of the seeming endemic, insincere and disappointing promises of the Fulanis to Nigerians. Just a few days away from now people will once again, pitiably be scampering to vote in a presidential election fixed for Saturday 16th February 2019 with high expectations that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the flagbearer of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), makes a verbal promise of restructuring Nigeria. Recall vividly that the force behind the activities of many e-rats drumming, shouting and singing support on various media platforms for Atiku's presidency anchors squarely on the restructuring ruse which is being employed as electioneering mantra by this Fulani Islamist, called Atiku Abubakar. Before the very eyes of these atikulated and grossly misinformed bigots, are some very salient points that need be examined, viz:

(1) What exactly is the manifesto put in place by Atiku Abubakar with a clearly laid down framework on how he intends to get Nigeria restructured, having the knowledge of the absence of referendum clause in the amended Nigeria Constitution of 1999, to which he will swear an oath to, of his allegiance to protect and uphold?

(2) Has Alhaji Atiku Abubakar clearly accented to any document anywhere, relating to his commitment towards restructuring Nigeria?

(3) Has he presented to Nigerians, his action plan through which he will maneuver legislative bottlenecks on the road to restructuring the country?

If there appears absolutely nothing on ground, in the light of the above raised concerns, then let it be noted that he is totally bereft of genuine and sincere advocation for restructuring. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will be likened to his Fulani oligarchical predecessors who deceived even the Yoruba political elites with such bogous and unrealistic promises. There are retinues of chronicled disappointments from these Nigerian government controlled Fulani caliphate to Yoruba politicians who were hoodwinked in the past. They include:


The first promise ever to be made by the Fulanis to the pitiablly myopic Yoruba people that recorded eternal disappointment, disgrace and regret, is the Afonja/Alami debacle in Ilorin, Kwara State, during the 19th century jihadist conquest of Hausa kingdoms and of course, that of Ilorin which was originally part of ancient Oyo kingdom. Afonja in his desperation for power, conspired against his relative - Alami, who was the then king of Ilorin and invited the Fulani jihadists (warriors) to kill his own brother. The Fulanis promised Afonja that he would become the next enthroned king of Ilorin on the elimination of Alami. After the killing of this king for Afonja's promised enthronement, he was eventually killed by the same Fulani expansionists and this culminated into the enthronement of  emirship dynasty in Ilorin. It marked the commencement of a wave of Fulani oligarchical failed promises to the Yoruba race which the political slaves of that ethnic extraction like Bola Ahmed Tinubu is yet to learn from.


During the genocidal war levied against Biafrans by the Nigerian government between 1967 and 1970, this same Fulani caliphate-controlled Nigerian government also beguiled power-hungry Obafemi Awolowo, another Yoruba ethnic bigot, with unaccomplished promises. Chief Obafemi Awolowo was graciously released form Calabar Prison by late General Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu to get back to Oduduwaland and declare that territory sovereign so as to enjoy the much desired political autonomy. On returning to Yorubaland, the same Fulani oligarchy lured Awolowo off track with empty promises, just synonymous with that which Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is presently giving to Nigerians. Chief Obafemi Awolowo was deceitfully told by Fulanis that if he could stand with them to win the gruesome war levied against Biafrans in the 90s, he would be the first Executive President of the country immediately the war ended. In his gullibility and desperation for power, he miscalculated and fell for the trap. He quickly designed the evil economic and political policies with which the then Nigerian military government employed to prosecute the most heinous war crimes in human history against the Biafran people. Chief Awolowo, in his morbid determination to satisfy the ungodly yearning of the Fulani caliphate, introduced starvation policy as a tool for winning the war against Biafrans. As the war eventually ended in 1970, Awolowo, in accordance with the deception agenda of the Fulanis, was flatly denied the anticipated chance of becoming the promised Nigerian Executive President, as General Yakubu Gowon firmly held on to power. He was disgracefully disappointed by their slavelords when he contested for the presidential position in 1979 election when he thought the Fulanis would make good their 1967 promise to him. He lost in two consecutive presidential elections of 1979 and 1983 respectively, to Alhaji Shehu Usman Shagari, a Fulani Islamist from Sokoto. Chief Obafemi Awolowo out of frustration orchestrated by these Fulani oppressors, died in 1987, with his dreams unrealised.


Another perfect example in the pack is what befell Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, another Yoruba man. Yet reeling in egoistic ignorance, the Fulani oligarchy promised him a reward with the position of the Nigerian President for his loyalty as a slave. Chief Abiola was swayed by this as a Muslim, with the firm belief that it will be actualized. Basking in this euphoria, he resorted to disparaging elders. It was as a result of his rascality that Chief Obafemi Awolowo pointedly stated: "You are jumping up and down because of the Fulani caliphate's promise of becoming President, to you. The Fulani caliphate controlling Nigeria will show you the seat of power of Nigeria, but they will never allow you to sit on it and if care is not taken, they will also kill you in the process". That prophecy of Chief Obafemi Awolowo came to pass eventually in the life of Chief M.K.O. Abiola, exactly as it was pronounced between 1993 and 1998 after Awolowo had died. Chief Abiola was actually shown the Nigerian seat of power by the Fulanis but was never allowed to ascend the throne. Abiola was disgracefully killed by the same people in 1998.


It is really disgusting that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, another frontline Yoruba political bigot, who has been promised the Nigerian President by the same Fulani caliphate come 2023, is yet to come to terms with history. Bola Tinubu is going to be the next Yoruba political slave cum casualty in the hands of this devilish messengers, his religious and political affinity with them, nonetheless. Another life-threatening shock from these people awaits Tinubu in 2023, should Nigeria yet exists till then. The same experience that befell Awolowo and Abiola stares him in the face most certainly.

It is noteworthy to state at this juncture, that all those expecting Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a Fulani Islamist, to restructure Nigeria if he clinches power after the 2019 presidential election,  most assuredly, will witness the greatest mirage of the century. There is nothing yet that Atiku Abubakar has done to prove his understanding of what restructuring really stands for nor can he give expression on how he intends to effect such. It is important therefore to Biafrans particularly, to insist strongly that their only desire revolves around Biafra independence and nothing else. All those Nigerians that are yearning for restructuring of the country can carry on with that concern. Biafrans must clinically boycott the forthcoming Nigeria presidential election billed for Saturday 16th February 2019 and this of course, will attract monumental positive effects for their freedom and that of their upcoming generations.
