In reaction to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo’s promise to treat what he described as “hate speech” as terrorism Mr. Jackson Ude the publisher of Pointblank News said the following.

“APC thrived on hate speech between 2014-2015. Today that seed they sowed is haunting them. They now say it’s terrorism! Don’t be deceived. APC came to power by hate speeches, divided Nigeria along ethnic and religious lines, sowed seeds of discord and blamed PDP! Hypocrites!”

How apt and how courageous Mr. Ude’s assertion is. I could not have put it better myself.

President Muhammadu Buhari, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, National Chairman Chief John Odigie Oyegun and all the other leaders of the APC are indeed a bunch of self-serving deceivers and self-seeking hypocrites.

Worst of all they are the architects of terror and the fathers of hate!

Permit me to send a strong word and warning to them from here: YOURS ARE THE WAYS OF BULLIES AND FASCISTS! WE CANNOT BE INTIMIDATED BY YOUR PENDING LEGISLATION OR YOUR PUERILE BARRACK-ROOM TACTICS AND NEITHER SHALL WE BE SILENCED. YOU CAME TO POWER BY HATE AND YOU WILL LEAVE IT WITH HATE!

I could go on and on.

Is there any shameful, disgusting, undeserved and malevolent label or any insulting adjective and bestial nomenclature that the APC and their friends have not employed or applied to those that have gallantly opposed their tyranny and hegemony?

Is there any sickening lie that they have not told about their perceived enemies and detractors?

Is there any life that they have not sought to scar, endanger and threaten? Is there any family that they have not used their associates in the media to malign and to incite the Nigerian people against?

Is there any slander, libel, fabrication, disinformation, misinformation, misrepresentation and hateful and destructive lie that they have not indulged in?

We know and hear all these things and we laugh them to scorn. It is like water off a duck’s back and it takes nothing whatsoever from us because Nigerians know the truth and they are far wiser than these professional APC haters and agents of destruction think.

The fact of the matter is that lions pay no heed when goats bleat and when cattle murmur. Dragons lose no sleep when the cock begins to crow and tigers do not concern themselves with the insults and opinions of sheep.

Whichever way they want to play it, whatever they do and whatever they say the APC will continue to get as good as they dished out to others over the last four years.

We are not intimidated by their threats of labelling us as terrorists and their crude attempt to intimidate and silence us.

This is because resisting tyranny and evil is a divine obligation. We shall continue to call a spade a spade and a tyrant a tyrant no matter what they say or do and we are prepared to pay whatever price may come with it. We cannot be muzzled and we shall not be silenced.

To the faithful and true I say the following: we must shed our fears and we must never forget that the Lord is with us.

We must never forget that even though they may have today, we have tomorrow.

We must be focused, we must be strong and we must be bold knowing that we serve a God who is mighty in battle and who never fails.

He is the El Shaddai and the Elohim. He is the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

He is the Lord of Hosts, the God of the Armies of Israel and the Ancient of Days.

He is our shield, our glory and the lifter of our heads. He is awesome in battle and His banner over us is love.

With Him, victory is ours and our enemies shall be brought to heel and crushed under our feet like the desert sand.

We lift our swords in the name of Jehova Perazim, we raise our shields in the name of Jehova Elyon and we march forth into battle in the name of Yahweh, the Lord of the Universe, knowing that glory, honor and victory and the blessings of the Most High God await us!

His precious love and faithfulness, from whom none can separate us, shall overcome the malice and overwhelm the evil of the architects of terror and the fathers of hate.

  4. WHAT PRESIDENT BUHARI OF NIGERIA MUST DO BEFORE ARRESTING PERSONS ‘PREACHING HATE’ AND THROWING NIGERIA INTO A STATE OF ANARCHY AND CONFLAGRATION SHE CAN NOT SURVIVE AS A STATE.

    I start this piece with the words of George Orwell, Author of Animal Farm.

    According to him:

    “If freedom means anything, it means the right to tell the people the truth they do not want to hear.”

    It is that truth President Buhari and his ‘supporters’ ‘apologists’
    ‘allies’ and ‘sympathizers’ do not want to hear about the many
    agitations in Nigeria, which have given rise to hate speech in the
    country that I tell them hear.

    I am aware that President Buhari has ordered his military to monitor social media and arrest Nigerians spewing ‘hate speech’.

    I wish to advise the president to do the following things before arresting persons spreading hate speech:

    Buhari should first of all apologize to Nigerians, especially those he
    classified as ‘five per-centers’ in his infamous, reckless, divisive,
    sectional and unpresidential ‘five percent (5%) and ninety seven percent
    (97%)’ speech which no doubt set the ball rolling for hate speech and
    escalated ethnic and regional tension in Nigeria along tribal and
    religious lines after he took over power in May 2015.

    He should arrest Arewa Youths who issued ‘quit notice’ to Igbo tribe and by
    extension, Southerners, to leave the North on or before October 1, 2017
    or face genocide before threatening to ‘arrest’ other persons spewing
    ‘hate speech’.

    Those who might want to tell me that the ‘quit
    notice’ has been ‘suspended’ or ‘withdrawn’ by Arewa Youths are humbly
    advised to watch the video clip of the ‘Kaduna Declaration’ that
    conveyed the ‘quit notice’ and take note of the VENOMS AND POISONS in it
    and ask themselves how possible it is for a group that released such
    devilish and deadly statement to ‘suspend’ or ‘withdraw’ it and expect
    persons to whom it had been ‘issued’ to foolishly and genuinely believe
    them and continue to reside in the North, being fully aware of decades
    of regularly demonstrated capacity and penchant of those behind the
    ‘quit notice’ to carry out mass murder of innocent persons and destroy
    property worth billions of Naira for political, tribal, religious and
    economic reasons.

    Buhari should also disarm, arrest and prosecute
    killer Fulani herdsmen and Islamic jihadists, who have killed thousands
    of persons in the Middle Belt and South, raped women; destroyed farms
    and crops worth billions of Naira and occupied ancestral lands belonging
    to indigenous Nigerians in the name of ‘free movement and grazing
    rights for Fulani cattle rearers’ and compensate thousands of victims of
    state-condoned and sanctioned terrorism against non-Fulani Nigerians
    before ‘arresting’ apostles of ‘hate speech’ with his military.

    It is wrong for Buhari to think he can silence agitations in Nigeria
    without addressing the deep-rooted factors behind them. Put succinctly,
    he MUST shun tribal, economic and religious interests of the ‘Fulani
    North’ and work together with all stakeholders in Nigeria to entrench
    justice, fairness, equity, equity, fiscal federalism and respect for
    sanctity of human life for the good of every Nigerian to bring a lasting
    end to all the agitations in the country.

    In the words of Liborous Oshioma, a Lagos-based legal pundit and a commentator on Nigerian affairs:

    “While we want to be united, you CAN’T force unity without addressing injustice and imbalances in the land.”

    For me, Any Nigerian who believes and basks in the unity,
    indivisibility and oneness of Nigeria without recourse to the need to
    thoroughly and holistically address the many social, economic and
    political imbalances and injustice in the land, which no doubt, are
    behind the plethora of agitations in the country, is only building
    castles in the air and not postponing Nigeria’s doomsday and Waterloo
    but facilitating and drawing them closer.

    The position of Buhari
    that “Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable” is the greatest threat to
    Nigeria’s unity, existence, development and prosperity as a sovereign
    country.

    Any attempt by Buhari to gag the social media and
    trample on the rights and freedom of speech of Nigerians in the name of
    ‘checking hate speech’ would tantamount to open and shameful show of
    dictatorship, intolerance, tyranny, a declaration of war on law
    abiding citizens of Nigerians and violation of their freedom of speech and privacy to life.

    The President should arrest killer Fulani herdsmen and those behind ‘quit notice’ and threat of genocide against Nigerians of Southern extraction resident in the North if he is serious about arresting persons behind hate speech, violence and killing in Nigeria.

    He can only throw Nigeria into a state ofanarchy and conflagration she CAN NOT survive as a ‘UNITED, INDIVISIBLE SOVEREIGN STATE’ if he continued to shield and protect the real enemies threatening Nigeria’s peace, unity, prosperity and development and arrest and jail those agitating against injustice and man’s inhumanity to man in the land.

    I wish to conclude this short piece with the words of G.T Ogunye, a Lagos-based lawyer and human rights activist.

    According to him:

    “Buhari MUST (emphasis mine) know and accept that the bedrock of
    democracy is dialogue, negotiation and discussion. His position that
    Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable is antithetical to democracy. It is
    wrong for him to assume or conclude that those asking for justice want
    to rock the union.”
