Buhari Owns The Heart, Saraki and Others Own The Valves
I slept early and woke up 2:34 am ET. I
decided to call two sources to know what
is happening on ground in Nigeria. With
each sentence we exchanged, I grew
more despondent. I saw all these
happening over a year ago when I wrote;
“Buhari Always Need An Idiagbon.” I
think intensely about Nigeria, it probably
is the reason why everything I predict
Saraki is effectively an Iroko. An Iroko
that takes daily sacrifice. Did I not say he
is Buhari’s first mistake? Now we know,
given the sheer ennui of the Nigerian
state. Saraki knows the game. Buhari will
not gratify anyone, Saraki will and he
does. With hungry Senators who came on
board to milk the nation, they soon found
out the gravy train has left the station.
Saraki created scores of committee and
bought their loyalty. He bought them
SUV’S befitting their status. Without
Ghana must go, he led the fight to make
constituency project a percentage of the
budget. Wetin remain? The Senators lined
up behind him while Buhari gropes in the
dark with Mamman Daura and Abba Kyari
riding him like a donkey.
The fight for 2019 is on and it is not for
the faint-hearted. It is going to be bloody!
It will be fought with sabotage, treachery,
subterfuge, blackmail and good old
money. Where are those who wrote I
belong to nobody for Buhari? They have
mellowed! They ran for cover! This battle
is not for small boys. It is for big boys
with deep pockets. No stone will be left
Let no one tell me we have any power.
We have power to choose with what
money produces. Do you know how
Buhari emerged? Were you a delegate?
Money is the name of the game. If
Kwakwanso had emerged, you would
have voted him. The primaries is where
the battle is fought. It is where the
money gets spent. It is where power is
deployed, the rest is cakewalk.
Buhari has the heart. We elected him. We
also elected the legislators. In thinking
out this update. I went into my
knowledge of human anatomy. I thought
of the heart and its valves. Saraki is
Buhari’s pulmonary valve.( tricuspid valve)
There are only two options open to
Buhari now. Remove Saraki or make
peace with him. Buhari can’t do either
because you can’t give what you don’t
have. He loathes Saraki yet he is a man
who relies on others to act. He does not
have the ruthlessness and ruffle me not
that is a critical requirement for a
President. Buhari in his second coming
does not have an Idiagbon. His Idiagbon
is sitting on the sidelines enjoying the
result of Buhari’s folly and their folly.
Saraki will not stop. He will inflict
maximum pain. A president that cannot
issue query to his Chief of Staff will never
take on a Saraki. I will reiterate here yet
again. Integrity alone is not enough to
govern. That is the tragedy of our pyrrhic
victory of 2015. A defeat in victory.

NIGERIAN POLITICIANS’ CERTIFICATE SCANDAL: A DOUBTING THOMAS TO ANY CERTIFICATE OBTAINED IN NIGERIA
Countrymen, this is sardonic; and it saddened and grieved me so much, each time I heard about certificate scandal in Nigeria, most especially by our politicians. This is so lugubrious and ignominious. Because this news is not only heard and read only in Nigeria, but in the whole wide world. The fact remains that as this abysmal information spreads like a communicable disease, so as any certificate obtained in Nigeria became doubtable in other parts of the world. Should we now blame this on the politicians themselves or on the electoral body who, in their act of ineptitude or maybe dereliction of duties restrained from carrying out a proper scrutiny of their certificates and all other vital piece of information about them before confirming their eligibility in elections, or what should we call this?
Here’s my personal experience. I was in the United Arab Emirates, and I submitted my credential for a particular job. I checked back as scheduled, having looked at my certificate, the Whiteman asked: “Are you sure your certificate is authentic.” I was so furious; because this is a certificate that I worked fiercely for five years to obtain. Even though I never carried over any course throughout my programme, every Nigerian knows that when you put in for a four year’s course, just hope for five years or more because of the incessant down tools in Nigerian higher institutions. My lividness however, aroused my curiosity and and asked him why. He said “We’d hear of Nigerian politicians involving in certificate scandals.” I was immediately speechless because I knew he wasn’t telling lies.
How can these politicians eat our future at home and also tag us black sheep abroad. How they do they want us to survive. Their actions and inaction have painted us black apart from our skin colour, all over the world. We have been striped naked of our dignity and integrity whenever we find ourselves abroad. I think we need to have a rethink and amend our ways. We need to make a communal call to reattitude before the world tags every Nigerian a criminal. As far as am concerned, the electoral body should be help responsible for any certificate scandal by any politician. This is because the body is saddled with the responsibility of verifying the academic and financial probity of any candidate vying for a political position or any appointee by the Executive.

BIG BROTHER NAIJA 2017 : ON HATING T-BOSS
I’ve read so much about how much TBoss is hated so much in the house and by outside viewers and I’m wondering if the people who make these comments actually watch the Big Brother Naija show or they just depend on opinions of biased TBoss fans.
Nigerians have been accused of hating on TBoss because she’s beautiful, light skinned, has piercings and tattoos all over. Have you ever stopped to consider that she could be disliked for reasons other than these?? Well, it’s time to put some things straight.
Let’s start from the origin of the intense dislike for her. TBoss was an item with one of the housemates Miyonse. She was ALWAYS with Miyonse, cuddling up or simply chilling with him and NEVER mingled with the other housemates(HMs)
. While she was bonding with Miyonse, the other HMs bonded with each other and formed alliances amongst themselves.
She lashed out at Miyonse during parties if he dared to dance with any other HM. She scolded him, sulked and had the poor young man begging for like forever for her forgiveness. When she was finally tired of Miyonse, she nominated him, the only friend she had in that house at that time, for possible eviction citing distraction as her reason. Of course, Miyonse was evicted. Poor boy didn’t even see it coming. She shed a few trademark crocodile tears and latched on to Gifty, whom she had earlier detested because she felt Miyonse liked her. Their common grounds for bonding? Their beaus Miyonse and Soma were both evicted same day and they ‘mourned’ together. Shortly after Gifty was evicted, TBoss moved on to Debie-Rise (DR). When all her close friends except DR were evicted, she was left with the HMS she refused to mingle with and whom had formed their bonds without her. She turned around to accuse them of conspiring against her and acting her.
Away from her being antisocial, TBoss never danced during parties. She glammed up for parties and stood well away from the gyrating HMS who danced away during the parties. She claimed she doesn’t know how to dance and simply refused to move her body to any rhythm. She just sipped her wine in her corner, ate out of the barbecued meat and went inside when the party was over. This she did for nine good weeks.
She complained incessantly during tasks … from the wet overalls , to how yucky the task dish was, bla, bla, bla. While the other HMS braced up to the tasks and gave it their best shots, TBoss grumbled her way through tasks.
If she lost during the head of house (HOH) or arena tasks, the viewers will have earfuls of her complaints. When she feels the complaints aren’t making much impact, she resorts to crocodile tears.
TBoss is so unforgiving! Woe betide any of the HMs that offends her … she’ll have that HM apologising for hours eg Bally. She had DR apologising severally over mundane issues , even when she TBoss, was clearly wrong.
What put the final nail in her coffin was her inability to recite the national anthem. We all know that for such shows like Big Brother Africa , Big Brother Naija or other reality shows where one is an ambassador of one’s country, it might be required of you to answer questions pertaining to the flag of your country, your country’s national anthem, pledge, President, currency, etc. Even if TBoss had been away in Romania and couldn’t recall these , she should have sat down and learnt them. But no, she didn’t. She made a fool of herself and guess who her fall guy was ?? Debie Rise her bestie! She blamed DR for embarrassing her on TV when she knew she was working hard to win the money. Even when DR explained that she had no such intentions and apologised profusely, TBOSS kept ranting and refused to forgive.
When she was finally called upon to tell viewers why she should be win the money, she referred to her fellow HMS as ‘these people’ with a scornful expression on her face. And her plans for the money if she wins? She’ll throw a party and take her mum on a vacation first before she figures out what next to do with the money.
Funny thing is … tell people that say TBoss is hated to list out just five (5) reasons why she should be voted for and why she’s MORE DESERVING of the N25m and SUV than any other HM. They’ll tell you “she’s hated because she’s half caste”, “she’s hated because she’s got piercings and tatoos”, bla bla bla. Ask for more concrete points why youll spend your HARD EARNED MONEY (N30/sms) voting for TBoss and they’ll all slink away into the woodwork they crawled out from.
Who will like an antisocial , arrogant person who feels she’s better than all the housemates? Who will like a fellow HM who refers to her fellow HMs as ‘these people’ ? Who will like someone who finds it so hard to forgive and cries over silly issues? Who will like someone who has zero values for loyalty to friends and nominates her friend and puts down her other closest friend in the house? Who needs an enemy when you’ve got TBoss as a friend??
Why should I, a Nigerian, vote for someone who’s got more pride in and talks more about Romania than her country of origin, Nigeria, which she’s representing??
Point is … Nobody hates TBoss because she’s beautiful or light skinned. Rather, she’s disliked for her stinking attitude that SUCKS! Go chew on that *in TBoss’ voice*
