THE MANY SINS OF BUHARI – THE LEOPARD CANNOT CHANGE HIS SPOTS

-Buhari made it very clear he would not be doing any business with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and had no need of their bogey loans which are in reality, booby traps (IBB would later gladly take them). Buhari instead, advocated for barter and direct countertrade with Brazil and other nations of the Third World. He was more interested in bartering oil for technology, spare parts and raw materials. Naturally, that pitched him against the West even if that meant good news for the economy of the world’s most populous black nation. However, this move was severely criticized by people like General Olusegun Obasanjo and Major-General James Oluleye.
-Clamping down on the press: It was not 
funny at all for journalists during the Buhari regime. Decrees upon decrees ensured that if your pen danced too much, you will go and sing the rest of your Awilo in jail. The Guardian, which was one of the most liberal newspapers at that time had many of their writers imprisoned. Some of the decrees (like the obnoxious Decree 4 of 1984, called the Public Officials (Protection Against False Accusation Decree)) were quite ridiculous in the sense that you will go to jail if you write and publish a story that was embarrassing to the government, even if that story was true, as it was in the case of Tunde Thompson and Nduka Irabor ofThe Guardian when they wrote article about military officers sent to diplomatic posts overseas. For me, that is excessive, you don’t need to put stew on jollof rice na…lol!

-Restriction of freedom and deprivation of fundamental human rights: According to the Decree Number 2 (1984), the State Security (Detention of Persons) Decree, the Chief of Staff (Idiagbon) had the power to detain, without formal charges, anyone deemed to be a security risk for up to three months. Ha! When we are not living in Pyongyang…lol! But please note that this decree has been existing since the time of Ironsi. Using the instrumentality of this decree, journalists were hounded and jailed while about a dozen press houses were closed down (Beko Ransome-Kuti, Tai Solarin and Haroun Adamu were all jailed under this decree).

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) were proscribed. Lobatan! Also, industrial actions were banned, demonstrations were not allowed and if you organize public protests, you will singohun oju mi ri l’Alagbon more than Orlando Owoh. But how was the dictatorial regime of Buhari able to do this? There was the National Security Organization (NSO), Nigeria’s first secret police service, which was on hand to intimidate, harass, detain, punish protesters/demonstrators, students, lecturers, critics, activists and civil servants who dared embark on strikes. It was so bad that by October 1984, about 200,000 civil servants had been retrenched.

-Corrupt civilian governors and ministers under the Shagari government were all rounded up by Buhari and jailed but without trial. IBB would later release them in droves…lol! Funny kontiri. President Shagari was put under House arrest but his vice, Alex Ifeanyichukwu Ekwueme were slammed with corruption charges and put inside Kirikiri prison - another nepotism.

-Expulsion of foreigners: About 700,000 foreigners, especially from Ghana and other West African nations were expelled from Nigeria following an announcement on the 15

This is why APC have be crying JONATHAN MUST GO!!! A loud cry by Some leaders and Moneybags of APC, as he closed some of their sources of defrauding Nigeria.
Majority of the Oil Blocks license in Nigeria will be expiring in few months and many of them are scared that president Jonathan might not renew their licence. They want him out by all means to retain the Oil blocks license.

It hurt them that President Jonathan ended their subsidy fraud. Govt reduced the payment from N1.4 Trillion in 2011 to less than N400Billion in 2013 and yet there is no scarcity of Fuel in the last 3 years.

Jonathan sold off NEPA and ended their fraudulent NEPA contracts. Now local and International companies are building their power plants to stabilize Power.
They will not use any NEPA staff to put SALT on our power plants again to put everyone in darkness.

Jonathan removed 57,000 ghost workers and43,756 Ghost Pensioners from civil service and reduce their wealth. These rogues are using their wealth to pay newspapers, Online media blogs to be lying and sharing propaganda against the President. The Ignorant joined them to shout CHANGE. Are they changing to red employ the removed Ghost workers or the Pensioners. Be warned about the CHANGE they want you to vote For.

The President handed Napa verification to a third party and eliminated port frauds. They do not benefit anymore, by dubiously seizing People goods and turning round to buy them in Auction.
It is now 24hours operation and surveillance giving no room for their agents to steal or frustrate Importers. They want their evil reign to return. That is their CHANGE.

I smear doom for Apc's..."voteGEJ. WinGEJ" Goodluck Nigerians.

BE CAREFUL WHO YOU VOTE FOR. Your future depends on your choice

Fellow Nigerians, we have Just few days to our elections and below are some vital things we must consider before casting our vote.

1. Buhari killed Ben ogedengbe by a death penalty for a crime that didn't carry death penalty when he committed it.

2. Buhari doesn't attend the Federal Council meetings yet collects his allowances. Mr. Integrity indeed.

3. Buhari canceled former Governor Jakande's metroline and forfeited the $50 million paid for it by the then Lagos State Government

4 Buhari used Violence to stop the September 1985 National Conference of the National AssociatIon of Nigeria Students.

5. Buhari jailed Tai Solarin and denied him his asthma drugs simply because he campaigned against military rule and for democracy.

6. Buhari Jailed Nduka irabor and Tunde Thompson for writing a truthful report which embarrassed his Government

7. Buhari raided respected Papa Awolowo's house and seized his passport so he couldn't travel out of the country. Was he also corrupt?

8.Buhari threw Former vice President Alex Ekweme in jail even though it was proven that Ekweme never stole any money.

9. He jailed honest and respected pa Adekunle Ajasin.

10. He jailed Fela Kuti in I984 for singing against the dictatorial tendencies of his Military Government

11 Doctors, remember that Buhari banned the Nigeria medical Association (NMA)

12. Buhari stopped Ooni of Ife for traveling abroad simply because he visited the holy land of Israel in 1984

13. He broke up press conference of ASSU in 1984 and detained four of their executives

14 He jailed Beko Ransome Kuti who only demanded for the release of his brother.

15 He jailed Dr. Sam Onunaka Mbakwe.

MASSES NIGERIANS, 2015 ELECTION I DUBBED INSANITY CURER FOR NIGERIA LANDS.
Abacha left behind a legacy of bitterness and unanswered questions
An army officer has told a Nigerian human rights inquiry commission that he was chained by his hands and legs for a year by agents of late dictator Sani Abacha.Observers at the inquiry sobbed as Captain Sadiq Usman Suleiman testified on his detention and imprisonment over an alleged 1995 coup plot.
Mr Suleiman was one of two former officers who testified before the first full session of the commission set up by President Olusegun Obasanjo to investigate abuses committed during the country's 15 years of military rule.
Scores of officers and prominent personalities including Mr Obasanjo himself, were jailed for the alleged coup attempt.
Inhuman acts
Obasanjo was also a victim of the Abacha regime
"I have undergone torture, inhuman acts and been detained in jail with my legs and my hands chained at night for one year," Mr Suleiman told the commission.
Mr Suleiman said he was jailed for four years in a hut without ventilation in the northeastern town of Jalingo.
One of the officers he named as a torturer sat among observers at the hearing as Mr Suleiman narrated his ordeal.
Another officer, Colonel Martins Azuka Igwe said he was also a victim of "callous acts of inhumanity".
Both Mr Igwe and Mr Suleiman were among people sentenced to summary execution by the coup plot tribunal.
But their sentences were commuted to 25 years in jail following international apeals.
Petitions
The commission led by retired supreme court judge Chukwudifu Oputa received over 10,000 petitions during a nationwide tour but has decided to concentrate on 200 cases involving most grievious abuses.
Ken Saro Wiwa - spokesman of the Ogoni people
The late General Abacha left behind him a huge legacy of bitterness, and many unanswered questions.
Among them are the hanging of the activist Ken Saro-Wira in 1995, and the detention and death in prison of the tycoon Moshood Abiola, the man widely believed to have won presidential elections in 1993.
The panel, modelled on South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission into the apartheid era, was set up by President Obasanjo soon after he took office in 1999, ending 15 years of military rule.


***************************************************************************************

(1) WAS GMB BUHARI NOT PART AND PARCEL PARTICIPANTS OF THIS REGIME OF ABACHA INNER CIRCLES AS PTF CHAIRMAN?
(2) WAS $25 BILLIONS MISSING OR HE WAS FALSELY ACCUSED AGAIN?
(3) Why Did Buhari refused to attend OPUTA PANEL IF HE HAS CHANGED AND LOVE NIGERIA OUR COUNTRY?

VOTE WISELY AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL COUNT IT.

(Among my Reasons. why i prefer CLUELESS THAN WICKED. cum 2015 election)

Buhari is Cursed!!!
Bartholomew Owoh’s last words were:
“I did not pray to die like this. This is a terrible death. But there is one thing, I am not a fugitive. I die only to abide by the government’s decision. May God forgive Buhari for spilling the blood of young people. It is a pity I am dying for not touching my fellow man’s property.
AND THE MEN DIED… BARTHOLOMEW OWOH (26), LAWAL AKANNI OJULOPE (30) AND BERNARD OGEDEGBE (29)
At 11.00 a.m. on Wednesday April 10, 1985. Bartholomew Owoh (26), Lawal Akanni Ojulope (30) and Bernard Ogedegbe (29) were executed by a Firing Squad at Kirikiri prison, Lagos.
The three along with one woman, Gladys Caroline Inyama, were convicted by the Justice Adebayo Desalu led military tribunal for contravening the provisions of Decree Number 20.
The fact that all 3 men and 1 woman were apprehended before the Decree was promulgated was immaterial, all 4 were found guilty.
On the day of their execution in front of a large crowd, the three men were tied to the stake in front of barrels painted in the colors of the Nigerian flag.
Wearing a white shirt, with a black tie and blue trousers, .Bartholomew Owoh’s last words were:
“I did not pray to die like this. This is a terrible death. But there is one thing, I am not a fugitive. I die only to abide by the government’s decision. May God forgive Buhari for spilling the blood of young people. It is a pity I am dying for not touching my fellow man’s property. I have never been with the police before, nor have I broken any law since I was born, If i knew this was going to result in my death, God knows i would never have had anything to do with it. That is why i am going to God with all courage and faith, that I don’t have to regret because he knows much better than I do.”
Wearing blue jeans and a denim jacket, Bernard Ogedegbe’s last words were:
“I was convicted without reasonable doubt. I was charged for being in possession of cocaine. But now the warrant of death reads ‘dealing in cocaine’, this is very unfair.”
On his part, father of four, Lawal Akanni Ojulope had no shoes, and clutched tightly to his Islamic prayer beads, he said nothing.
Six soldiers took aim, two assigned to each man. After the first volley, Ogedebe slumped to the right, Owoh slumped forward, Ojulope did too, but not before his fila fell off his head. All men were dead.
However, the firing squad kept shooting.
The three men would not have been executed if their sentences were not approved by the 16 man Supreme Military Council led by Muhammadu Buhari.
The only reason they were brutally executed is because Buhari wanted their deaths to serve as a warning to others that his administration meant business.
29 years later, Buhari has shown no remorse and has not apologized for his diabolical decision.

GENESIS CHAPTER 3:1-4 TELLS US ABOUT THE FIRST DUBIOUS AGENT OF SATANIC CHANGE...

(1) Now APC was more dubious than any political party that INEC has registered. And they said unto Nigerians,"yea,hath the son of Goodluck called Ebele Jonathan said,ye shall not eat of every tree of resources in the garden of Nigeria?"
(2) And Nigerians said unto APC also called Deceiver," we may eat of every tree of resources in the garden of Nigeria and of a truth,the son of Goodluck has increased and enlarged our coasts for the better:

(3) But of the fruit that emanates from Boko Haram and their sowers of discord and bombs,Goodluck hath said,ye shall not eat of it,neither touch it lest we be blown to smithereens and die"

(4) And APC the harbinger of woes and sufferings said unto them," ye shall surely not die for Goodluck Ebele Jonathan doth know that in the day you eat thereof and perceive Boko Haram as your human rights protectors and champions,then your eyes will be opened and ye shall be gods"

Need I say where that landed us. We were evicted from paradise to the world of sufferings and pains.

REJECT APC,THE NEW FACE OF SATANIC CHANGE!

A THINKABLE QUOTE FOR YORUBA PEOPLE CAMPAIGNING FOR BUHARI

""Your forefathers in heaven are ashamed of you Yorubas for deciding to be slaves to the Hausas that the likes of Awolowo taught civilization! What a shame!! Awolowo, a nationalist and true democrat that first started FREE Education in the South/Nigeria was molested and humiliated by ur hypocrite and evil Buhari just because Awo stood for democracy! Only if u know how the abokis are laughing at you Yorubas. An Hausa annulled Abiola election, another Hausa man jailed Abiola and another Hausa was in power when Abiola died in prison!!! Aaaaah, the present Yorubas are a disgrace to their Heros!!! Shame on You All!!!" - Eugene Thinki'mtough

Great Benin Bronze

EDE N'ERHENA VBE EDO

"

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
