BUHARI WILL RETURN TO US SOON FROM LONDON ALIVE
Since our dear President has been in London for several weeks for a vacation, there have been many speculations. Some said he was dead, others said he had died even before he was taken to London and it was a cover-up because a dead corpse was taken to London. Others still didnt want him to come back and wish him death or permanent incapacitation there.
However, as a true patriot and a genuine change agent, comrade and revolutionary, I have been supportive and optimistic unlike the nay sayers.
Let the truth be told, I suspect Buhari to be very sick and undergoing series/stages of surgeries , sessions/courses of chemotherapy or a combination of both. It may not be far from the truth that he is on treatment for Prostrate Cancer because it is the commonest malignancy affecting men of Baba’s age group, that is those 70 and above.
Medically, Prostrate cancer is not a death sentence if detected and treated early. Early detection may not be a problem os a man who used to go at least annually as a private citizen to the UK for his medicals. Many have survived prostrate cancer, including world proclaimed neurosurgeon and inspirational speaker – Ben Carson.
On a final note, for those who have written off Buhari that he wont ever come back again ( jokingly till London club Arsenal wins Premiership, which may not happen in the next 10 years ) or he would return in a body bag, I like to remind you how nay sayers wrote off Barcelona’s chances of qualifying for Champions League quarters, after they lost 1st leg 0-4 to PSG. They not only bounced back but created the greatest comeback in the history of the Champions League, rising up from the ashes like the famed Phoenix and winning 6-1.
Buhari will rise up from the ashes evil thinkers have confined him and will return hale and hearty to Nigeria to continue the mandate we Nigerians have given him.

Unnecessary Comparisons are Dangerous and useless
Ben Carson wrote:
A crow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life. But one day he saw a swan. “This swan is so white,” he thought, “and I am so black. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.”
He expressed his thoughts to the swan.
“Actually,” the swan replied, “I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.”
The crow then approached the parrot.
The parrot explained, “I lived a very happy life until I saw a peacock. I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.”
The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him. After the people had left, the crow approached the peacock.
“Dear peacock,” the crow said, “you are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet.”
The peacock replied, “I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet. But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo. I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow, I could happily roam everywhere.”
That’s our problem too. We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad. We don’t value what God has given us.
This only lead to the vicious cycle of unhappiness.
Learn to be happy in what you have instead of looking at what you don’t have. There will always be someone who will have more or less than you have.
Someone who is satisfied with what he/she has, is the happiest person in the world.
Always be proud to be yourself.

APOSTLE JOHNSON SULEMAN’S ALLEGED SEX SCANDAL : My Observation
1). The stripper claimed she had sex severally with Suleman and that he loved releasing his sperm on her back, …a famous married man refused to use condom with a prostitute abi?
2). And that she was pregnant for him and he poisoned her by giving her a drink to drink and then she had a miscarriage. Eyaaa kpele …poor brain.
3). And that she bled and bled and bled and bled for over 12 months in Canada. . Yet some morons believed her. A whole Canada with one of the best health care systems in the world she did not find a doctor?
No doctor’s report whatsoever of her claim?
No pathology lab report?
No haematology lab report?
No doctors prescription.
No pharmacy records?
Yet some morons believed her.
So she bled for 12 months and didn’t die of Anaemia? 12 whole months bleeding?…yet some morons believed her.
Could it be Gonorrhea or Condylomata acuminata she was bleeding from?
We want to see a doctor’s report so that we can join to send that “pastor” to jail or hell quickly. Or better still make the prostitute get the 500 million she is desperately demanding for from Suleman.
We want to see videos of both of them entering hotels as she claimed. In this age there are CCTV cameras everywhere. Even mama Ekaete pepper soup joint now has security cameras, talk more of such big hotels the prostitute mentioned. Not just some stupid childish Snapchat screenshots.
4). Shebi she said they even traveled together? Let’s have the tickets number. Airlines bookings can be easily tracked this days. Even the identity of who was on what seat.
Before then, those applauding this can go back to their midget in Kaduna for more briefing on how to nail Suleiman.
IF NOT, THIS WILL CONTINUE TO BE A DISTRACTION.

: STILL ON APOSTLE SULEIMAN/OTOBO ISSUE
I have followed issues raised in the press conference of Stephanie Otobo, the alleged mistress of Apostle Suleiman and a number of reactions to it but my position on the issue has not changed.
1. The fact that the lady changed her initial claim that there was a marriage introduction between her and Suleiman in her family home, after her father denied such, makes all her other claims suspect. Following her father’s denial that no such introduction took place and that Suleiman had never been to his house, she now said the so-called introduction was done in the Apostle’s office. That is highly preposterous. How can you have a marriage introduction in the suitor’s office?
2. On her call for their passports to be checked to confirm that they travelled to Italy together:
When a stalker is desperate, he/she can go to any length to get his/her victim’s attention. If you know the itinerary of your target, particularly a preacher whose international meetings are made public, a desperate stalker can go there in attempt to see the person.
Some years ago, pastor Adeboye told a story of a lady stalker, who consistently came to him to tell him that she was his ordained wife. Adeboye said he always rebuffed the lady, telling her that how can that be true when he was married. He said the lady continued to stalk him. Then, one day, he said he travelled abroad unannounced for an engagement. A day after he arrived, Adeboye said someone knocked his hotel room door and as he opened it, behold it was this same lady. Aghast, Adeboye said he didn’t know how she knew he was travelling, the place he was going and his hotel. He then realised that she was not an ordinary person but an agent of the devil and out of righteous anger, he warned the lady that the next time he set his eyes on her, she would die. And that was the end of the lady’s stalking.
3. If Suleiman has anything to hide the supposed amorous relationship, he would have “settled” her and not involve the police. l doubt if he would involve the police when the lady was making unreasonable financial demand, which necessitated the police to coordinate the payment of the money before she was arrested.
4. On the issue of the lady asking for call logs, here is a man, a public figure who deals with thousands of people on regular basis and counsels and gives financial assistance to many people. So, do you know how many people he would have contact with? Besides,we are in a society where, with technology, text messages are sent with peoples numbers without the person being aware of it. To me, since the matter has been charged to court, these are issues that would come up during trial, particularly during cross-examination and where the demeanor of the defendant and the complainant in the witness box would be taken into account by the magistrate and not this showmanship of media trial where the lady was describing the supposed size of Suleiman’s manhood and the style he likes. To me, this smacks of premeditated, malevolent media trial meant to undress the man publicly.
5. Could it be that this is just a coincidence that this scandal is coming just few weeks after Suleiman’s encounter with the security over the Fulani herdsmen, and a supposed relationship that purportedly happened in 2015? Why coming out now?
6. I have lived long to know that things of this nature are not always the way they are. Or were we not here some years ago when we were regaled with the confessions of Fryo following the murder of Bola Ige, after which the guy recanted?
7. In the mid 80s, we witnessed how Justice Donald Ikomi was set up in the then Bendel state. He was a very strict no-nonsense judge as the Chairman of Bendel State Armed Robbery Tribunal, who was a thorn in the flesh of robbers. He also didn’t have a good relationship with the police. He was therefore set-up. The policeman guarding his house, Corporal Uanle was murdered in the judge’s house, his tongue and private part, cut off. The judge was arrested, witnesses lined up against him and was charged with murder. Before the trial started, he had been retired. I covered the case. At the end of the day, the judge was discharged and acquitted for want of evidence, but not after he had been humiliated and shown the way out of the Bench by his traducers.
I am not in any way trying to defend Suleiman but my instinct tells me there is more to this that meets the eye. I am not carried away by all the salacious details of Otobo. I would rather wait for her trial in court where all the facts would be laid bare, after rigorous cross examination and evidences. I know that Suleiman has only made tentative statements on this issue, perhaps not wanting his proposed evidence in court to be ambushed. That is my reading.
And l know that Suleiman had been tried and convicted in the media but l am giving him a benefit of doubt. You don’t have to agree with me but things are
not always the way they seem because there are three sides to the case- his side, her side and the truth. Waiting for the case to commence in court.

What is the big deal if a president is sick? Haven’t presidents of other countries been sick before? Are presidents not human beings? We can cite examples from the world’s biggest democracy.
US presidents have been sick while in office.Woodrow Wilson (1913-1921) suffered a severe stroke that left him incapacitated throughout his presidency. Yet He remained in office till the end of his term in 1921.Diagnosed with polio in 1921 at the age of 39, Franklin D Roosevelt (1933-1945) still served for twelve good years though he could not stand or walk without support. Using a wheelchair in private, he never disclosed the full extent of his health condition.
Dwight Eisenhower (1953-1961) suffered heart attack in 1955 as a result of which he was hospitalized for several weeks. He also did a surgery some months later to treat Crohn’s disease and in late 1957 suffered another stroke that made him temporarily unable to speak. Yet he went ahead to win a second term after that.
John F Kennedy (1961 – 1963) had a chronic bone disease and was hospitalized nine times in his short two and a half year presidency but this was never revealed to the American public. George Bush (1989 – 1993) vomited and then fainted in front of cameras in 1992 while on a visit in Japan and heaven did not fall in America.
Now if about five of American presidents have been sick in office, what is wrong if Nigeria’s current president is also sick? Is he made of iron? We are also tempted to ask, if Buhari dies, will it be the first time that a president will die? Yaradua died here in Nigeria. Murtala Muhammad died. Tafawa Balewa died.
Eight American presidents have died in office. Fourdied of natural causes: William Henry Harrison (1841), Zachary Taylor (1850), Warren Harding (1923) and Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1945). Four others were assassinated: Abraham Lincoln (1865), James A. Garfield (1881), William McKinley (1901) and John F. Kennedy (1963).
The truth is that if Buhari dies today, his name will be written in letters of gold. It is the death of a hero primus inter pareil and the death of a reformer nulli secundus. Buhari is a dogged corruption fighter who came to rescue Nigerians from yam thieves. If he dies today he will leave an indellible record, an achievement difficult to match by his successor and a standard that is bound to create a yawning lacuna.

*Late Dr Myles Munroe; a man of wisdom* was quoted as saying:
I was born poor, sleeping on the floor with cockroaches and rats. Today, I own my own jet. Everything I have is paid for. I am debt free; I open new businesses every year and mentor many people,”
Myles Munroe strongly discouraged the reliance on Government for jobs, describing it as ‘lazy thinking.’“There is no such thing as unemployment in the world. What you call unemployment is what I call lazy thinking,” he says.“The work of government is not to create jobs, but to create an environment for people to develop their own work,” he asserts.
Munroe discourages employed professionals against relying solely on their jobs for income, urging them to instead create wealth using their unique talents. He also challenges aspiring entrepreneurs to develop and refine their expertise in a talent, idea, service or body of
knowledge.When you refine your gift in an area, you become valuable; people seek you out and pay you,
Munroe said setting principles is the first step towards achieving success for any budding entrepreneur. “I will never be poor again because I have learnt the principles of business,” he asserts.“I can say without a doubt that what I have accomplished is based on principles passed on to me by my parents. You should never build your life on facts or techniques because these often become obsolete,” he cautions.“For you to survive today, you must accept the reality of partnerships. If someone emerges as my competition today, I am not supposed to kill them, but marry them,” he states.“Do not curse a crisis; use it. Every business is a solution to a crisis. Develop the capacity to solve a problem and you will become a successful entrepreneur.”
*HIS 10 WORDS OF WISDOM TO AFRICA*;
1. Understand crisis and use it to solve a problem. Every business is a response to a problem.
2. Initiate something; do not wait for things to be done.
3. Identify and refine your talent, skill, idea, service or knowledge to create wealth.
4. Whatever makes you angry, you must solve it.
5. Poverty is not the lack of money, but the lack of ideas.
6. God does not give cash, but ideas on how to create wealth.
7. Be in control of your mind, thoughts, perception and mentality to respond to change.
8. Be keen and take advantage of changes brought about by technology and globalisation.
9. Leave your legacy, but in the people you train, not in products or buildings.
10. Every human being was born with a treasure. Your greatest secret to success lies in discovering your treasure.
*Secure your future, stop blaming every sitting president or Government of your country for your destiny*
