INEC has postponed election scheduled for February 16, 2019. New date will be announced according to some sources. There are also confusion whether or not INEC will reverse the decision. Update will follow as it becomes available.
Nigeria as a country has not been able to progress to nationhood and realize all the inherent potentials based on available human and natural resources. The factors responsible for this are several like every other thing in life and the big ones are ethnicism, lack of belief in project Nigeria, nepotism, fraud, and recent ethnoreligious cleansing.
The Latin root of the word corruption “corrumpere” is linked to these 3 words: mar, bribe, and destroy. Out of the 3, destruction from destroy is the worst, especially when it has to do with human life.
In the last 3 going to 4 years of this second coming of Buhari, Nigeria has witnessed the greatest destruction of human life except for during the civil war. Nepotism has been at its worst and Nigerians have never been this divided. As Nigeria goes into elections, let everyone consider that this current administration has actually been the most corrupt ever.
Buhari and APC have increased the rates of the following:
- Death of Nigerians
- Destruction of property
- Dehumanization through unemployment
- Abuse of power
- Ethnoreligious mistrust
Finally, ask yourselves is your life better? In the rich Savannah and plains of the north, the beautiful rainforest of the southeast, southwest and south-south and the exciting peaks and valleys of the middle-belt have we not had more deaths, unemployment and fear?
A CIA declassified document originally published in February 1984 sheds light on past practices of Buhari’s 1983-1985 regime. The document, titled: Nigeria: Six-Month Outlook for The Buhari Regime, was declassified in 2012 and provides information on Buhari’s administration after he took over from the democratically elected civilian ruler Shehu Shagari in a military coup. With the new Buhari’s regime in 1983, there was little hope that the administration was capable of overcoming the political and economic challenges facing the country. Some of the concerns raised by the report are highlighted below and compared to the concerns of his current administration: [adToAppearHere]
“THE DELAY IN NAMING A CABINET AND OUTLINING POLICIES REFLECTS THE GOVERNMENT’S DIFFICULTY IN FINDING CAPABLE CIVILIANS WILLING TO SERVE IN THE NEW GOVERNMENT, AS WELL AS LIKELY DIFFERENCES OF OPINION AND JOCKEYING FOR POSITION AMONG KEY SENIOR OFFICERS.”
- Delay in cabinet appointment: the CIA report mentions that there was a delay in appointing Cabinet positions and outlining key policies. The delay was partly attributed to the inability of the Buhari’s administration to recruit civilians willing to serve. According to the document, “the delay in naming a Cabinet and outlining policies reflects the government’s difficulty in finding capable civilians willing to serve in the new government, as well as likely differences of opinion and jockeying for position among key senior officers.” Buhari’s current administration also faced similar criticism after he was democratically elected in 2015. It took President Buhari almost six months to appoint key cabinet positions, which many criticized him as being disorganized and unprepared to lead in a democratic state. [adToAppearHere]
- Inexperienced/unqualified appointees: Buhari was accused of hiring people without the right qualifications for the job. It was stated that the “US Embassy reports that most civilian members of the new Cabinet appear ill-suited by background and experience to their assignment.” This is also one of the greatest criticism of the current Buhari’s administration. An example of a lopsided appointment that was highly criticized is the appointment of Hameed Ali, a retired Nigerian Army Colonel as the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service.
- Nepotism: This is by far the greatest criticism faced by Buhari’s current administration, which the CIA document reveals was the practice in his past administration that threatened national unity. The document reveals that “while the new regime has tried to ensure a relatively representative balance among major ethnic groups, regions, and military services in making high-level appointments, senior officers of northern, Muslim Hausa-Fulani origin appear to dominate the Supreme Military Council and top Army positions.”
The CIA report stated that if the government had the interest to foster national unity, it must “shuffle some appointees,” in order to achieve “a more acceptable ethnic and regional mix.” This also captures the current sentiment. Many critics and supporters have called on Buhari to reshuffle his executive cabinet, ministerial appointees, his defense team, to reflect the rich diversity of the country and to foster national unity. President Buhari is yet to heed to those demands made during his past administration as well as the current administration.
Former Nollywood star and political activist, Regina Askia says No to Buhari and No to Atiku. Do you believe as Regina argues that electing Atiku is “jumping from frying pan to fire?”

The fear of ATIKU is the beginning of WISDOM. Like I said, for the umpteenth time…..
Buhari’s Government is not the best but embracing ATIKU is jumping from frying pan to fire. NIGERIANS you can bet your last naira, that I will always call it as is , on anybody occupying the office of the President in defense of the rights of the common man. ALWAYS!!
This post should show just that.
The outspoken critic of Buhari’s administration and party, All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode said voting Buhari for a second term means to knowingly approve “Islamization of Nigeria.” He said this in reference to the appointment of northern Muslims to key positions by the Buhari’s administration and warned Nigerians that a second term will enable Buhari to accomplish his agenda to Islamize Nigeria. Is Femi Fani-Kayode right?
“If you’re a Christian and you support APC/Buhari, then know it clearly… that you have knowingly approved the Islamization of Nigeria.
Don’t be deceived by Osinbajo as a Christian Vice President. Buhari’s main agenda is Islamization of Nigeria under the watch of Pastor Yemi Osinbajo.
Under Buhari Nigeria is suddenly being governed by Islamic heads of almost all Federal Government MDAs, yet we have a Pastor VP who doesn’t see anything wrong with that.
Child of God (Christian) wake up from your slumber of IGNORANCE, Turkey was a Christian nation until Othoman, like Buhari, suddenly became their President/National leader in the 13th century and imposed Islam on them and today Turkey is now an Islamic nation where churches are not allowed. If you vote APC/Buhari, before the end of his 2nd term in office, churches will be a taboo in Nigeria and Islam will not only be Nigeria’s official religion, but will be made mandatory.
Don’t say it’s not possible, because under Buhari:

The list is endless; Tell me why Islamization will not be achieved by APC/Buhari?
Pastor Osinbajo can not/will not stop Buhari’s Islamization of Nigeria; In Abuja capital city, a Redeemed female evangelist was murdered in broad daylight by Islamic fundamentalists for preaching Jesus Christ, yet Osinbajo didn’t do or say anything to show Buhari and Nigerians that he did not agree with the killing of innocent Christians by Islamic fundamentalists.
Buhari negotiated with Boko Haram and released all the Islamic school girls kidnapped by Boko Haram and left Leah Sharibu, the only Christian girl, with the terrorist group because she is a Christian – up till now Osinbajo has not seen the need for FG to pay the terrorists to release Leah but he is going about distributing billions of Naira in the name of Tradermoni while Leah Sharibu is still languishing in the hands of the terrorist group for her faith in Pastor Osinbajo’s Lord Jesus Christ. Somebody is deceiving us Christians. The truth must be told.
Catholic Bishops were murdered inside Church by fulani herdsmen who have Buhari’s full support, Pastor Osinbajo just merely explained it away as “we will fish out the culprits”. Only recently, a Christian former Chief of Defence Staff was murdered in very very questionable circumstances. How many shall we count?
Esther in the Bible said “If I perish, I perish” for the sake of her God and Israel. Shedrac, Mishak and Abedniggo in the Book of Daniel said to the King “we will not bow to your idol, our God is able to save us, per adventure He didn’t, we are ready to die for Him”.
David put his life down when Goliath defied Israel and the God of Israel. Pastor Osinbajo was supposed to be the Esther or Shedrac, Mishak and Abedniggo or David of Nigerian Christians.
Unfortunately Pastor Osinbajo is VP for himself and family alone; even RCCG cannot point at any tangible benefit of having Osinbajo as a Member and Provincial Pastor as VP.
When Osinbajo was sworn in as VP, he was asked whether he preferred to be addressed as “Pastor” or “professor” he said he preferred to be addressed as “Professor”, at the expense of his ordination as a Provincial Pastor.
Today his campaign posters address him as “Pastor Osinbajo” and not “Professor Osinbajo”. Child of God wake up from your slumber of IGNORANCE; don’t allow Buhari (Satanic agent) to use Pastor Osinbajo to deceive you the second time.
He succeeded in deceiving the Nigerian Christians the first time in 2015 because he used Pastor Osinbajo of RCCG, otherwise he would have failed the 4th time like he failed the previous times when he hadn’t picked Pastor Osinbajo as VP.
Atiku is not a saint but he is a lesser evil than Buhari. Vote for Atiku. The Bible says when the righteous are in Power (Govt) the people rejoice. Buhari claims to be Mr Integrity and has a Senior Pastor as VP; are you Nigerians rejoicing now?
The Bible cannot be wrong – Buhari/Osinbajo are not the righteous that the Bible talked about. Atiku is a lesser evil than Buhari. If I am wrong, is General T.Y Danjuma also wrong about APC/BUHARI’s Islamization agenda?
Christians in the middle belt were being killed in thousands every day and Pastor Osinbajo kept mute because of his personal political interest at the detriment of God’s Kingdom; if not for President Donald Trump’s warning to Buhari, may be by now they would have wiped out the entire Christians in middle belt and Osinbajo will not say a word because he doesn’t want to offend Buhari.
And I repeat “what shall it profit a Pastor if he becomes 2-times VP and may be President, while the Church he is supposed to lead to heaven for the Master is wiped out by agents of the devil who are his close associates”?
Be warned: a vote for APC/BUHARI is a vote for the Islamization of Nigeria like Turkey; don’t be deceived that Buhari is fighting corruption; Nepotism is grand corruption itself. If Buhari is fighting corruption, how come he surrounds himself with Corrupt people (many of them former PDP members like Amaechi, Akpabio etc).
Wake up child of God and vote/support Atiku/PDP to stop the Islamization agenda.”
Presidential aspirant, Kingsley Moghalu weighs in on the purported suspension of the CJN:
Onnoghen’s Suspension Must Not Stand
President Muhammadu Buhari set aside the constitution by “suspending” the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen. This action is a serious threat to Nigeria’s democracy and a gross violation of the rule of law, which must not stand.
The purported suspension of the CJN is a dangerous culmination of President Buhari’s contempt for the rule of law, which includes disobeying court orders.
To preserve the country’s democracy, President Buhari needs to reinstate Justice Onnoghen back to office without delay and allow the due process of the law in handling whatever legal infractions the CJN may have committed.
Professor Kingsley Moghalu
Presidential Candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP)
The national spokesman of CUPP weighs in on the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen by President Buhari.
President Buhari suspends Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen. This recent purported suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria is causing a lot of turmoil and debate in the country. This seeming dictatorial overreach by the Presidency has been speculated for so long but it is clearly now no longer speculation but a reality. The question is whether the Nigerian legal institutions are ready to fight to save the country.
Do you agree that the Presidency did the right thing?
Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo in full campaign mode has stomped Ondo State. He reportedly met with the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Isreal Adegoke Adewusi, Governor Akeredolu, and other traditional rulers and palace chiefs.
Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar makes a surprising visit to the United States.
