You are speaking ‘gibberish, Fani Kayode tells Rochas Okorocha

Image result for Femi Fani-Kayode pictures

Rochas Okorocha’s jibe at Chief Femi Fani-Kayode following the wide doubts expressed by Nigerians at the authenticity of the photograph emanating from the APC governors’ purported visit to Muhammadu Buhari in London is a sign of desperation to serve the evil purposes for which the Imo State governor has been procured.

This is true to the character of Okorocha who is well known for his garrulousness which he ridiculously mistakes for oratory, with which, unfortunately, he has been misleading the good people of Imo State.

Okorocha is nothing but a dirty, cheap, fat, ugly frog that mistakes himself for a monkey simply because he can hop. A man who serves and defends a president and government that have murdered, insulted, marginalized and humiliated more of his own Igbo people than any other government in the history of Nigeria outside of the civil war.

For a man whose party has unprecedentedly threatened to arrest the moment he steps out from the immunity he currently enjoys, Rochas should actually be hiding his head in shame when men like Fani-Kayode are talking.

Uche Onyeagucha, an APC chieftain and a former member of the House of Representatives, has accused Okorocha of lying serially when he said he had spoilt Imo people with projects when in fact Rochas has only littered the state with a plethora of abandoned projects, most of which exist only on paper.

In lampooning the delinquent governor, Onyeagucha had said: “…Rochas should be in prison for the way and manner he has looted Imo State. He should rather be sewing his prison uniform.

“At the appropriate time, Imo people will beam to the world, the many grisly misdeeds of this cruel administration… He has deceived our people for too long, he has bamboozled them with lies, and we have tolerated it long enough.”

Need we say more?

A man who deceitfully created a phantom Imo Air that soon disappeared into thin air without any notice after it was commissioned with so much pomp and circumstance does not deserve any serious attention.

His deceit and cruelty has since been confirmed by Imo people, and his vicious credentials qualifies him for a regular mental check.

The truth of the matter is that Fani-Kayode and Rochas are not in the same class. Imo people thought otherwise but today they know better. Our joy for them is that 2019 is just around the corner. They will surely kick him out, and his emptiness would be exposed.

The truth that scares the likes of Okorocha is that Fani-Kayode is a confirmed Cambridge-trained lawyer whose great grandfather, Rev Emmanuel Adedapo Kayode, his grandfather, Victor Adedapo Kayode were UK-trained, and his father, Chief Remilekun Fani-Kayode, was not just a prominent lawyer who finished from Cambridge University in 1941 and came top in the British Bar examination for the whole of British Commonwealth of nations, he was also the Deputy Premier of Western Nigeria, and the one who successfully moved for Nigeria’s independence in the Federal House of Assembly in 1958.

He was a Queens Counsel, the third Nigerian to be made a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, and set up the first indigenous law firm with the erudite late Chief Frederick Rotimi Williams and Chief Bode Thomas.

One can go on and on.

Chief Femi Fani-Kayode himself needs no introduction. A Cambridge trained-lawyer who was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1985, he practiced law in the firm of Kayode & Sowemimo before he ventured into politics where he rose to the peak of his career, becoming a two-time minister of the Federal Republic after being appointed the first ever Special Assistant on Public Affairs to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The import of all these is that Rochas has no history backing up his claim to fame today. He is alleged to come from an unknown root as his paternity is believed to still be very much in doubt even in Imo State.

We know those who worship mammon and have sold their souls to the devil to acquire it and also to become governor. With time we shall expose their evil deeds including why they go about in customised diapers as a consequence of their evil and unnatural copulation even with donkeys just to acquire fame, money and power.

One then wonders how such a man whose highest educational qualification is a mere Advanced Diploma would dare attack Fani-Kayode. A man that when you mention the name Williams Shakespeare to he would ask you if that is the name of his village barber rather than being one of the greatest literary minds and writer ever known in history. That is how primitive, uneducated and backward the walking statue is.

If not for the kind of system that we run in Nigeria, men like Rochas should be seeking to write JAMB now in pursuit of their first degree. He probably would have been given admission now based on trial or pity because we know he has a very low intelligence quotient (IQ).

Rochas should remember that he is a slave. If he was not a governor, FFK would have had him crawl on his knees and kiss his feet. He should know his place and stay out of our line of fire for his own good.

In our own humble estimation, we think it is just too unfortunate that such a low life is leading an Imo State of erudite scholars, scientists, highly educated and successful businessmen/women, political giants, legal gurus etc.

Our consolation, like Onyeagucha advised, is that Rochas Okorocha seemed to have attacked Fani-Kayode while sewing his prison uniform. The imagination of life after government house could have affected his mental state leading him to spew gibberish-

Lunch in London, anxiety in Nigeria  by Reuben Abati

“What’s gwan inna wa cwantry?”
“What language is that?”
“English of course.”
“Sounds like Creole to me. Why don’t you just talk straight?”
“Nobody talks straight in this country anymore.”
“I still talk straight. I can’t start twisting my tongue because some people have lost it.”
“Okay, I was asking what is going on in our country?”
“Is that a direct question or a sly comment?”
“Just answer the question”
“What I know is that we are now truly, a country of hyenas, jackals and small animals. A big animal kingdom, but when the First Lady Aisha Buhari drew attention to this, recently, we all started screaming that she was rather condescending but right now, with what I am seeing and hearing, I believe she will be vindicated in the long run.”
“I see.”
“We, the people are obviously the small animals. In an animal kingdom, the bigger animals do what they like with the smaller ones, and they dare not complain.”
“But you still haven’t answered my question”
“My friend, why must I always be the one to tell you what is going on in this country? When you want to be mischievous, that is when you ask funny questions. Are we not in this country together? Don’t you listen to the news like everyone else? So, why should I become your newspaper and internet combined. Stop it. But for just this last time, I will use my church mind to tell you that the latest development is photography as a tool of governance. Some APC Governors and party leaders just visited President Muhammadu Buhari in London. They had lunch with him and took photographs.”
“I know about that. I actually saw the photos too. But the whole thing doesn’t look straight to me.”
“It doesn’t look crooked to me either. People have been complaining that the President of Nigeria is missing in action and they need to know that he is still alive. So, they provide a photograph of him having lunch with his party members and loyalists. How is that a problem for you? We should be glad that the President is getting well.”
“Who took the photograph?”
“We are in a digital age. Anybody at all could have taken the photograph?”
“You can’t just ask anybody to take the President’s photograph. It is either you have a media crew on ground, who will take both still and motion pictures, that is photos and videos, or you invite the media, both local and foreign to capture the scene.”
“Who says that is the only way to cover a Presidential occasion?”
“Everything a President does is supposed to be properly documented.”
“What is your problem? They showed us the President having lunch with his guests. And there was another photograph taken by the guests.”
“Where are the establishment shots, and the video, and the audio?”
“Those people didn’t go there to establish anything. They went to do eye-service!”
“You don’t get it. Rather than just show the President and his guests at the dining table, they should have shown us the President welcoming his guests, chatting with them, and NTA should have shown us an actual video as part of the nine o’clock Network News. And what kind of lunch was that? It looked like they just placed a bunch of banana in front of the President and some fruits in front of the guests. I checked the table carefully; every drink there is like anything from a Nigerian fridge. And not even a small stain of oil on the table.”
“You were looking for stains on the table as proof that the lunch actually took place? Did that look like a bukateria to you? Hen? Obviously, the only thing you are used to is gbegiri and amala kind of lunch. When big men eat, they don’t litter and stain their clothes and the table the way small animals like you do. And their mouths don’t drop oil. If that happens, there would be stewards to clean things up.”
“You are assuming some big men have table manners. You don’t know anything. They should show us the video then, and more useful photographs. And why didn’t the party leaders travel with the President’s media team and the Minister of Information? All these dem say, dem say, Okorocha told me. All of a sudden Okorocha has become the Minister of Information. You think if they asked Alhaji Lai Mohammed to also come and eat in London, he will say he is busy?”
“I see your problem is that some people had lunch with the President.”
“Someone in fact told me that the picture looks very familiar.”
“You may need to prove that.”
“Okay, Mrs Buhari also went to London to visit her husband. Where are the photographs of her own visit? Why didn’t they show a picture of her sitting with the President?”
“You are a foolish man. You want photos of the President and his wife, sitting together in za ozza room? Candidly, tell me you are asking for photographs from the Presidential ozza room? You are sick. No President takes pictures in that other room.”
“Donald Trump will gladly take a picture anywhere. You don’t get my point”
“I get your point. You are just another wailing wailer, a merchant of lies and a mischief-maker. We know your type.”
“I am only trying to help. When you set out to tackle disinformation, you look out for pitfalls that can create doubt and you deliver a sucker-punch to shut people up. You don’t address an issue by creating more doubts. I am talking strategy. All of this would also have been more convincing if it was the picture of Acting President Osinbajo having dinner or breakfast with the President in London that they showed us.”
“The acting President didn’t go to London to eat. He went for serious business to consult with his boss. And what if he was fasting at the time?”
“He could have posed for a photo-op with his boss.”
“He was in a hurry. He rushed to London and rushed out to attend Council meeting on a Wednesday.”
“In a hurry to take a photograph to allay the anxiety of Nigerians?”
“People like you would still have said the photograph looked familiar.”
“Nigerians are not convinced. They would probably have given Mrs. Buhari and the Acting President the benefit of the doubt but they won’t believe what an APC Governor says. Okorocha ke?”.
“Oh ye descendants of Shimei!”
“Shimei? Who is Shimei?”
“You are a Christian and you have never heard of Shimei?”
“No”
“Okay, just continue you hear. Just make sure you don’t lose your head in the process. Just because we are in a democracy, you think you can be questioning everything. Oh ye descendants of Shimei in Nigeria, beware…beware!”
“I have an idea.”
“Yes?”
“See, I think the government can still score a master-stroke, if they arrange for Femi Fani-Kayode and Governor Ayo Fayose to also go to London and have lunch with the President. People are likely to believe the two of them. Fayose will then use his own mouth to inform Nigerians that he made a mistake when he said the President was on life-support and Fani-Kayode will recant and both of them will apologize.”
“Clap for yourself. I see you truly consider yourself a political strategist. So if you are working for President Buhari you will actually invite those two Yorubas to lunch with the President while he is on a medical vacation that is making everyone anxious.”
“Why not? The President is the President of everybody. He is the President of all Nigerians not 95%. And if you are concerned about those two being Yoruba, we can have a Federal character representation. They can invite Nnamdi Kanu from the East and Alhaji Balarabe Musa from the North. Lunch in London with Baba, an organized event covered by the media.”
“Nnamdi Kanu! Did you say Nnamdi Kanu? Are you on some kind of medication?”
“If the objective is to prove to Nigerians that the President is not bed-ridden, he should have lunch with people Nigerians are likely to believe.”
“So if Fani-Kayode, Fayose and Nnamdi Kanu return from London and they decide to say something else, who will bear the risk? Or they turn down the invitation on the grounds that it is a calculated attempt by the Nigerian state to blackmail and poison them, who will defend the Nigerian state?”
“You are giving the dog a bad name”
“Then it means you know nothing about politics.”
“I am not joking. I can even add one more person to the list, how about the Catholic priest, Ejike Mbaka who claims he has been hearing cries falling like rains in Aso Rock?”
“If Fr. Mbaka saw visions of cries and rains, he probably saw the floods that are now ravaging the country from South to North. But keep adding people. You can even add Hushpuppi, Maheeda and Bobrisky. But I bet you will also be the first to complain that they are using Nigerian or-yer-l money to have lunch in London.”
“In that case, let them just do a London edition of the Presidential Media Chat.”
“Nobody is going to do any media chat. Nigerians must learn to trust their government for once. When you go into government, people treat you anyhow.”
“It is our government. We have the right to ask questions. You can’t keep rejecting everything that I suggest. Okay, let the Nigerian High Commission in London organize a Town Hall meeting between President Buhari and Nigerians in the UK. That is a cost-effective way of correcting impressions. Nigerians want to be sure that their President is well, alive and fit. This thing is not rocket science and I trust our brothers and sisters in diaspora to report the truth. ”
“You want to sabotage the President. You want him to interact with PDP members in diaspora.”
“I never mentioned PDP. There are APC members in the UK too and there are persons who have no political affiliation. Anyway, when is Baba coming back?”
“When his doctors say so or according to Governor Okorocha, in two weeks‘ time.”
“But the Constitution is very clear. It says…”
“Forget about the Constitution. This is national politics, stability and security. We don’t care what the Constitution says. Be careful, when Baba returns Insha Allah, something will definitely be done about all you hyenas, jackals and small, small animals disturbing this government. Insha Allah.”
“Stop bragging. There should be room in this your kingdom for all animals please. Nobody should intimidate anybody. That is why I am happy that the House of Representatives is now considering the Not-Too-Young-To-Run Bill. They have reduced the minimum age for eligibility for the office of President to 35.”
“Thirty-five. I don’t have a problem with that.”
“You shouldn’t. The only problem is that you are a fascist. But there should be other bills: a Too-Old-To-Run bill that will prevent Aso Rock from being turned into an Old People’s Home and a bill that says the minimum qualification for anybody seeking any office, from councilor to President should be a university degree or its equivalent.”
“What has a university degree got to do with politics and governance?”
“Everything”
“Some of the worst people in this country are university graduates. So?”
“You just keep disagreeing with everything. Okay, are you aware that some people are now saying Nigeria is now definitely on auto-pilot?”
“Nigeria is not on auto-pilot. Professor Osinbajo is in charge and all of you wishing us evil, just know that there will be serious consequences.”
“What consequences? Threats. Threats. Threats. Government cannot continue to threaten the people. It is just so sad that civil society and the Nigerian media have been badly compromised. Where are the intellectuals of old, the professional activists, the pro-democracy coalition; they are all so quiet. I believe they are quiet out of shame and regret.”
“Nobody is ashamed. That is strategy. I am surprised you can’t even identify strategy. You think this government will wait and fold its arms and allow all of you to start sounding like paid enemies?”
“You and your people should just realize that this is a democracy, and that someday, tomorrow will come and the people will remember.”
“Hey, sorry hen, wailing wailer. I see the thing is paining you. For your information, Baba will win again in 2019.”

Drake Tattoos Lil Wayne’s Face on His Tricep

Drake‘s no stranger to getting tattoos that hold very special meanings to him. That’s why the “Level Up” rapper loves inking portraits of those close to him all over this body.

The star has permanently memorialized his late uncle and grandmother with their faces tattooed on his upper back. He added a tattoo of his mother’s face next to it, and his father’s mugshot. He even told Celine Dion he wants to add her face to the collection. But first, Drake added a different famous face to his arm.

The 30-year-old rapper shared a photo on Instagram as he wrapped up Houston Appreciation Weekend, which revealed hit latest tricep tat: a portrait of legendary rapper Lil Wayne‘s face glancing to the side.

View image on TwitterThe star’s new tat sits on his left tricep directly below images of skull and a bottle of Drakkar Noir cologne.

It’s not too surprising to see Drake pay homage to Lil Wayne with this tattoo — the “A Milli” rapper helped Drake get his start in the music industry back in 2009, when he signed the star to his Young Money label.

On The Fake Picture Of Breakfast With Buhari In London-Femi Fani-Kayode

 Image result for Femi Fani-Kayode pictures

The picture of a handful of All Progressives Congress, APC governors and President Muhammadu Buhari, which was purportedly taken in London on Sunday, July 23, 2017, is old and fake.

I have been reliably informed that they were taken during Ramadan in Abuja some time back and not yesterday in London.

Quite apart from that even though the picture was meant to have been taken in London curiously all the drinks on the table are Nigerian products and Nigerian-made.

Did the Governors take all those drinks along with them to London when they went to see the President?

Is Buhari not coming home again anytime soon? Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and some government officials recently told us that he would be back on the 28th of July which is just a few days away.

Why the need for the APC Governors to “visit” him in far away London if he will be back in Nigeria in a few days?

What was the purpose and point of this fake photo-shoot and this strange breakfast meeting? What was the purpose and objective of this monumental fraud and deceit?

Whatever the answers may be to these questions the curtain must be brought down on what can only be described as a puerile and nauseating conspiracy.

This crazy and noxious charade just has to stop. We do not wish the President dead but we have a right to know the truth. As a matter of fact we demand to know that truth because, as he once said himself, he “belongs to us all”.

For those who still believe that the meeting actually took place there are some nagging questions that need to be answered.

For example why were the Nigerian and foreign media not allowed to cover the proceedings and participate in this celebrated photo-shoot and merry London feast?

Why did the Villa press corps not take one of their own camera men to London and make a short video of this “historic” event?

Why was were the whole proceedings shrouded in so much secrecy? Why is it that only one picture was taken? Why were more pictures not shot? Why was Buhari not put on audio tape and interviewed whilst he was with his celebrated and important guests?

Why did he not offer a few words of hope and encouragement to the Nigerian people to ease the tension that has been generated in the land by his prolonged absence?

How can they expect us to take Governor Rochas Okorocha’s word for anything without any solid proof or evidence to back those words up or give them a measure of veracity or credibility?

I for one would not believe a word that a man like Rochas tells me. If he told me that it was day outside I would have to assume that it was night. It is that bad.

Again why did Buhari not shake anyone’s hands during the photo-shoot? Why did he not get up from his chair, say “cheese” and give us a big Daura smile?

Why was he just sitting there like a stuffed mannequin who really did not know where he was and who he was interacting with?

Is it not obvious that he can no longer function properly? Why all the tall tales that he is getting much better?

Is it not clear that he is simply being stuffed with and pumped up by a dangerous cocktail of steroids? Is it not obvious that he is suffering from an extreme form of dementia?

Is it not clear that even if he were to be brought back to Nigeria tomorrow he could no longer function properly and lead the nation?

Is it not obvious that he is barely lucid and that he is little better than a zombie?

Where is the shame in admitting these truths and prevailing on him to resign in order for him to be able to go home to Daura and take care of his health?

Better still he could resign and be taken to Prophet T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos for prayer, deliverance and healing. I assure you that it works.

Those who truly love Mr. President and care for him ought to advise him to take one of these two options. Yet sadly few will do so.

The bitter truth is that we have become the laughing stock of the entire civilised world since this shameless charade began.

A nation of 180 million people whose President has gone missing and who have no idea where he is, what is wrong with him or what the prognosis for his condition is. The situation is shameful and bizarre.

Worse still we have a media that is so fawning in its attitude when it comes to the federal government and that is so easily intimidated that they simply refuse to ask the right questions about this matter or undertake to carry out the necessary investigations with a view to establishing the truth.

This is the greatest tragedy of all and it results in total impunity on the part of the government because the media is not prepared to keep them on their toes.

Yet it doesn’t stop there. We have a Senate with 109 distinguished and able Senators and a House of Representatives with over 300 honorable legislators and yet not one of them has the fortitude or guts  to call for the resignation of this ailing man who is clearly no longer well enough to lead our nation.

The following questions must be answered: are the Nigerian people under a blinding and binding spell? Is this the unholy work of voodoo-merchants, witch-doctors and necromancers?

Have our people been bound up and charmed by these broom-loving APC wizards and witches?

The truth is that God is watching this charade and He is not mocked. No matter what anyone says or does His will shall be done, His counsel shall stand, His purpose shall be established and His name shall be glorified in this situation and in our nation.

Nigeria is too important, too big and too good to be subjected to such malevolent indignities and infantile rubbish.

She is too blessed and advanced a nation to be manipulated by a faceless little cabal of power-hungry, godless, self-seeking, evil, callous and bloodthirsty men.

We as a people deserve far better than that and we ought to demand much more. Buhari is not a King with divine rights and neither is he God.

He is a human being like you and I and, just like us, blood runs through his veins. He is not immortal and he is not infallible.

He is mortal and he is fallible. He is not indispensable. Like all human beings, he is dispensable. With or without him Nigeria shall go on and our nation shall survive.

In any case whether he comes back alive or not is not the point and neither is it the relevant question.

The relevant point and question is whether he can continue to function as President if and when he does come back and, based on the information at my disposal, it is very clear to me that he will not be able to do so.

The truth is that if and when he does come back, he will come back as a shell of his former self. This is sad, pitiful and tragic but the sooner we come to terms with it the better it is for us all.

This is a man that I have been reliably informed has lost his memory, his powers of speech, his recollection of events and his ability to perform even the most basic mental and physical functions. A man in such a condition can hardly be described as being fit to rule this great nation.

The morbid obsession with retaining power at all costs which has afflicted those in the presidency that Mrs. Aisha Buhari has graphically described as the “hyenas and jackals” coupled with their insidious attempt to institutionalise what I have described elsewhere as “corspsocracy” (the rulership of the living by the dead) in the body politic of our nation must cease forthwith.

Nigerians are gracious, kind, long-suffering, resilient, loving, patient and compassionate people who wish the best for their President but that does not mean that they should be taken for granted, taken for a ride or treated like fools. They are not children and they are not stupid.

It is time for this horrendous madness and hideous nightmare to stop!

It is time for Buhari’s seat to be declared vacant and it is time for Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to fully take over and be sworn in as the new and substantive President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
