Nigeria: The shame of the Black Race

May 5, 2009

It is a very sad day for democracy indeed!!! Anybody that previously had any hope in the Nigerian project would by now know that it is just a pipedream.

I am sure that the Appeal Court judges in Ilorin, if they have any conscience, would by now be seeing the problems they caused due to their lack of courage to have declared the man with the highest legal votes as the winner of an election.

Now, after many people have died through electoral violence, the electoral robbers have succeeded in rigging themselves back to power just because a court that is supposed to dispense justice without fear or favour suddenly started playing politics with their duties to God and man.

I hope Justice Abdullahi should proceed to set up the Election Tribunal as soon as possible. I think this time around, it is a straightforward case and I do not see any Godly and transparent tribunal allowing the election of Ido-Osi Local Government to stand. It should not take more than 2 months to conclude such a case and I see Segun Oni being sacked from Government House.

As for Mrs. Ayoka, I am not just convinced that she did a volte-face just like that. I belive either of two things might have happened for her to have done that amazing turnaround from good to evil:

1. That everything might have been a ruse from day one. Her resignation, being declared wanted, resurfacing, etc might have been done hand-in-hand with the PDP and the government of the day.
2. She might have been threatened with some 'skeletons from her won cupboard'. In Nigeria, most public officials are known to be corrupt and moreso in INEC, which is seen as the bastion of evil. She might have been confronted with some 'evils' from her past and threatened with retribution if she refused to toe the line of the PDP and the establishment (in the manner of 'all of us don chop the awoof together, if comot now com claim say you dey clean, the awoof wey you don chop before go run your belle').

I wait to see how she lives the rest of life (whether she lives it in glory or shame and ignominy) and what legacy she bequeathes to her children and their generations to come after them.

Mrs. Ayoka Adebayo will meet her creator one day and I hope she will be able to look her creator in the face and say she has done what is right. God is not mocked, whatsoever a man sows, so shall he reap; those who sow the wind will reap the whirlwind!!!

Just to mention Oye, I do not agree that there was voter apathy during the rerun elections. To say there was voter apathy in Oye is a lie of the devil. If you drive through Oye, you will find that most of the houses are just in front of the road. There are not many houses in the town just like in many parts of Ekiti State and so to have expected 18,000 votes from that community is highly fraudeulent.

There is no community in Ekiti that is densely populated.

Those who make peaceful change impossible, make violent change inevitable. PDP has murdered sleep and may they sleep no more. Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience he stands waiting, with exactness grinds he all.

 They might have done their worst but God will show himself strong soon. Let us all await the salvation of God.
