There were series of trending topics and headlines all over the news yesterday which perhaps included fuel scarcity, assassination attempt at DSP Ike Ekweremadu, Yobe bomb blast (which reportedly killed several number of people and leaved many more injured) and the president's ordered arrest of ex-NSA Dasuki.
He (the president I mean) seemed to be taking this Dasuki case very personal, that he had to be tweeting the reports directly from his official account at about 10pm. Whoever submits panel reports at that hour? Couple with the president's immediate issuance of order of arrest. He further went on to judge him guilty as charged.
I hope he gets a fair trial, because the handwriting on the wall only goes to prove the president is hell bent to tarnishing and putting into disrepute the man's image. Or are there no procedures for an indictment to be submitted to security agencies and an arrest warrant issued? Buhari orders? It's a sham and a shame too.
Rotimi Amaechi was indicted with the state's panel reports and Gov Wike didn't make an arrest. There were allegations levelled against Fashola coming on the heels of his immediate relieve of office from Gov Ambode and prof Anthony Onwuka (min of education) who infact has been found guilty of fraud and racketeering, yet they were all awarded with juicy ministerial offices.
Dear president, this is democracy and not the military regime. There are legal counsels and procedures to this effect. You do not accuse anybody of a crime until proven so in court. Reports of a panel firsthand on social media?

There is so little we can say, ok I will say it's all going to be to no avail. In as much as I do not necessarily believe much can come out of this present government, they have my full support.
I have just started to unravel the flipside of the whole APC fairytale turn reality show. They thought out the best possible mean to hijack power from the PDP. I am really sure they listed them out in these order: brainwash; deceits; lies; ill promises and propaganda.
Nigerians desperately needs a messiah. Yes my dear, it worked a great deal. Nigerians heard exactly what they wanted to hear. More like those relatives who promise you the world after one probably (may be) recently lost a mum and/or dad. You know how it usually ends.
If you ask me (though am no T. B Joshua) I forsee a divided APC; PDP re-emergence (not sure if it will resurrect with a new party name; a divided North; and an unpredictable election come 2019. 50/50 chance.
N. B: I solemnly hope and pray the presidency manages this MASSOB crises with diplomacy and humane impression without the least ruler and military instinct he's blessed with which might no doubt incite some tribal, geoethnic and
And again despite so much hike in price of petrol, Nigerians do not seem to be complaining like hell, our perseverance has returned. Good to know. Jonathan's head would have been demanded for by now. The monkey and bamboo would have been soaked in blood by now. Or just may be we are thinking it is our self induced blunder.
Only God knows (eeyan naa mo)

I love France so much, I have been there couple of times myself (that's a lie, because I have never travelled out of the four walls of Nigeria), I love the language, the people, the culture and on paper I have read numerous times that it's has one of the most beautiful cities in the world; Paris.
Despite all the showers of praise and adoration on this beautiful country, city and the people, also putting into consideration the tragic incident of terrorist attacks which occurred on Friday evening in Paris and environment. I hereby share my uttermost profound condolences and sympathy with the good people of France and the world as a whole.
But I ask myself these questions: can the world ever know peace again? Can love ever reign again? Can religion ever know peace again? We can deliberate on this matter from now till may be eternity but it's obvious that world peace is a thing of yesteryears and I do not see that replicating in these modern era of ours.
Terrorism itself has crept into the daily activities of my dear country, Nigeria. Way back you do be smart to never bet an average Nigerian ever committing suicide less being a terrorist. Its a whole different situation now because terrorism is now considered a frequent occurrence. Hence, I pray for Nigeria and Africa.
I commiserate with the world, on the loss of lifes in different regions with different circumstances and strategic falls. I console with the families and victims of wars, airstrikes, terrorist attacks, suicide bombings, military coups, poverty, malnutrition, natural disasters such as: earthquakes, flood and hurricane.
Peace is what I pray for, all around the world.
