My thought on Davido politicking for his uncle-Reno Omokri

Recently, a number of people criticised pop singer, Davido, for
donning a Peoples Democratic Party attire during the PDP mega
rally for his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke’s gubernatorial bid.
They say that as a serving member of the National Youth Service
Corp, Davido ought not to promote a political party. I thought long
and hard about the criticism and my conclusion is that Nigerians
are hypocrites.
According to the Police Act and the Nigerian Police Code of
Conduct, serving police officers should not participate in partisan
Yet, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission, Ibrahim Magu, a serving police officer, appeared on a
Channels Television programme on Tuesday, March 15, 2018,
wearing a lapel pin bearing an insignia of the re-election bid of
President Muhammadu Buhari.
Did those criticising Davido speak up then? No, they did not. I
know for a fact because I led to choristers who protested against
that anomaly and even called for Magu’s sack.
The problem is that many Nigerians are cowards! Some might
even say most Nigerians are cowards.
I thank PremiumTimes, for exposing Kemi Adeosun, Adebayo
Shittu and Okoi Obono Obla as either NYSC draft dodgers or
potential certificate forgets. But what about Muhammadu Buhari‘s
Three of them graduated a few years ago. Have they served? To
be the best of my knowledge they have not served.
Zahra Buhari graduated. Did she serve? Yusuf, the power bike
rider, graduated. Did he serve? Or is his service to Nigeria done on
top a multi-million Naira Okada?
Hypocrisy will kill Nigeria before corruption. Why should the
children of ordinary Nigerians serve while President Buhari’s
children do not? Yet the Presidency keeps regaling us about
Buhari’s so called-integrity
And let me say that I am rather impressed at the effort the Nigerian
Police put into investigating Senator Adeleke’s WAEC certificate. I
just wish the Nigerian Police had also put in the same diligence in
investigating President Buhari’s WASCE Certificate.
Three members of President Buhari’s cabinet, Kemi Adeosun,
Adebayo Shittu and Okoi Obono-Obla, either forged their certificate
or have no certificate, yet the Nigerian Police DID NOT charge
them. The West African Examination Council confirmed Senator
Adeleke’s certificate, yet he is the one police want to charge!
Does that even make sense? Are we living in an upside down
world? Has life in Nigeria become so farcical that Alice in
Wonderland appears Sandeep than life in Buhari-land?
How else do you explain the irony of Kemi Adeosun who admitted
to forgery and was escorted to Nnamdi Azikiwe airport to board a
business class flight to London, while Senator Adeleke who is
accused on forgery is asked to report to the force headquarters for
arraignment in court just days to Osun election. Meanwhile, Buhari,
the man of integrity, does not know the whereabouts of his own
And the hypocrisy of Nigeria is so contagious that it is rapidly
contaminating previously rationally minded individuals. Take for
instance Senator Shehu Sani who on Monday, September 17,
2018, tweeted in response to the HSBC report warning that a
Buhari re-election will spell doom for Nigeria as follows:
“HSBC is angry that African Heads of States are now going to the
Chinese restaurant and stopped going to the Mc Donald’s and
This tweet went viral with many Nigerians cluelessly supporting the
clueless Senator without realising that in actual fact, HSBC is a
The full name of the bank is The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking
Corporation. HSBC is actually the bank that issues the official
currency of China’s HongKong province. The headquarters of
HSBC is in HongKong. HongKong is a district of China. How can a
Chinese bank be angry that Africans are going to China?
Even HSBC holdings in London, which styles itself as a ‘British’
bank, is actually a wholly owned subsidiary of The Hongkong and
Shanghai Banking Corporation.
These facts are actually listed on HSBC’s website. So why would a
Senator open his mouth and spew such ignorant nonsense!
I guess one has to get used to such inanities from the All
Progressives Congress and its members. After all, the leader of the
party is a proud owner of a Bachelor of Science NEPA certificate.
With such a leader, what else can you expect from the followers?
I have just read a statement by the Presidency accusing the Senate
President, Senator Bukola Saraki, of hypocrisy for disparaging
President Muhammadu Buhari, who Mr Saraki called visionless.
That President Buhari is visionless is not debatable. It is an
international fact. We are all witness to the publication by the
Financial Times of London, which revealed that after meeting
President Buhari, US President Donald Trump said: “I never
wanted to meet someone so lifeless again”.
President Buhari’s visionless-ness is evident in the fact that even
one of the world’s richest men, Bill Gates, looked President Buhari
in the eye and told him right there at the Presidential Villa that
“your economic blueprint does not address Nigerian’s needs”.
Even the President’s wife, Aisha Buhari, has borne witness of the
President’s visionless-ness when she said “He is yet to tell me if
he’ll seek re-election, but I have decided as his wife, that if things
continue like this up to 2019, I will not go out and campaign again
and ask any woman to vote like I did before”.
Evidence of President Buhari’s visionless-abounds. Under him,
Nigeria became the world’s headquarters for extreme poverty as
published by the World Poverty Clock, the World Economic Forum
and British Prime Minister Theresa May.
Moreover, just three days ago, the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation published that young by the current trajectory, if
nothing changes, 30% of the world’s extremely poor people will be
in Nigeria by the year 2050.
Ironically, the statement lambasting Senate President Bukola
Saraki, was signed by Garba Shehu, President Buhari’s
How can Garba Shehu attack Bukola Saraki for once supporting
Buhari in 2015 and now saying that Buhari lacks vision in 2010?
Did Garba Shehu not condemn Muhammadu Buhari while he was
Special Assistant on Media at the Presidency during former
President Obasanjo’s Peoples Democratic Party government?
Evidence abounds. Does Garba Shehu deny this?
The Presidency’s statement is nothing less than a case of the pot
calling kettle black.

Is it right for Federal Government to dialogue and compensate killer herdsmen and bandits?
