    Bishop Funmi Adesanya-Davies Ph.D

     

    There is no need trading words, so lend me some of your words Mr. cleric, as I am disappointed and utterly perplexed that Professor Ishaq Akintola, a supposed academic could  'intelligently'  make such negative remarks to negate the red alert by the retired military generals and Christian elders under the aegis of the National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF), who opined in Abuja last week that Nigeria was being Islamised. The retired generals include Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.), Gen. Joshua Dogonyaro (retd.) and Gen. Zamani Lekwot (retd.) while Elder Solomon Asemota, Elder Moses Ihonde, and Elder Shyngle Wigwe were among the elders, who had warned the Islamists of impending danger if they do not  desist. Of course yes, what an adult sees sitting down, a child cannot see while climbing up, an adage says.

  • SAUDI – World No.1 Arabian Nation Dumps Islamic Calendar

    Saudi_flag

    Saudi, the origin of Islamic religion, containing Mecca – the Islam’s holiest site – has dumped Islamic calendar on Sunday for the western Gregorian calendar, bringing the oil-rich kingdom in line with many of its energy customers. But the real reason is the need to conserve funds, according Saudi Arabian sources.

  • Saudi Arabia’s ‘Islamic military alliance’ against terrorism makes no sense

    Saudi_flag

    Saudi Arabia announced that it was forming a new “Islamic military alliance" devoted to fighting global terrorism. The plan stemmed from the "keenness of the Muslim world to fight this disease, which affected the Islamic world first, before the international community as a whole," Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman told reporters during a rare news conference.

    In many ways, this alliance seems designed to calm Western critics who have frequently complained that the Muslim world isn't doing enough to combat terrorism and extremism. However, the details of the planned alliance are more than a little unclear and have left some scratching their heads, unsure who exactly is in the alliance and what it is actually designed to do.

    The recommendations of the Senate Committee on FCT, which probed the affairs of the ministry of FCT administration under El-Rufai, alleged that the minister sold most of the government houses to himself and his cronies, and made to sign 100 Certificates of Occupant on the eve of his departure from office.

    The recent attacks and sacking of many communities in southern Kaduna, Kaduna State by the Fulani herdsmen raises these pertinent questions;

    Are the attacks motivated by quest for pasture land or are they motivated by quest for ethnic cleansing/genocide?

  • SPEECH BY CHIEF OBAFEMI AWOLOWO TO WESTERN LEADERS IN 1967

    Speech by Chief Obafemi Awolowo made to the Western leaders of thought, in Ibadan, 1 May 1967. (quoted in "Crisis and Conflict in Nigeria (Volume 1), January 1966-July 1971" by A. H. M. Kirk-Greene. )

     

    The aim of a leader should be the welfare of the people whom he leads. I have used 'welfare' to denote the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of the people. With this aim fixed unflinchingly and unchangeably before my eyes, I consider it my duty to Yoruba people in particular and to Nigerians in general, to place four imperatives before you this morning.

  • STOP THIS INSANITY OF THE DRUMS OF WAR IN NIGERIA:- AS ALL COULD BE LOST IN WAR AND ALL GOOD COULD BE ACHIEVED WITH PEACE

    drummers

    We have in the last seven days been deafened by the choruses of hate and threats of war from almost every region of the Nigerian conflation. The tone for this macabre was set by a rather unfortunate statement credited to a conglomerate of groups purporting to be representing the entire Northern Nigeria on which some of us are bona fide members but were never consulted or carried along in its drafting and presentation. This was quickly followed up by a similar statement by the Region of the Niger Delta with the acronym RONDEL. Other regions like the Middle Belt comprising mainly of Christians of the Northern region extraction followed suit with spurious of press statements.

  • The Completion of Othman Danfodio's Jihad

    Boko_Haram


    Madam Sarah Danladi 45 served her husband the Local Beans popularly known as
    Waken Gida a delicacy popular in Southern Part of Kaduna State. She and her
    husband and 6 Children went to bed that evening quite early. Unknown to Sarah
    that was the last time she would see her family.
    Sarah could not sleep that night while her husband and Children where fast
    asleep. At around 10 pm she felt like to ease herself but she decided to stay put
    maybe sleep will come and she would forget about the call of nature. Some few
    minutes to 11pm she could no longer hold it and she silently went out. Instead of
    going into the Bathroom / Toilet located some few feet from her room she
    decided to enter into the Corn Farm just by her room.
    As she was easing herself, she heard some movements in the farm opposite
    where she was and the movement was getting closer and louder. She was curious
    what it was and all of a sudden she saw a tall figure came out with something
    that look like a Gun. Before she could blink her eyes they became 6 figures all
    holding machetes and Gun. One of them whispered something in a Language she
    does not understand and 3 charged into their house the door was sure open
    because she is outside. One of the 3 outside set fire on their 2 bans where they
    store their grains. She then heard the 'tat ra tat ra tat tat tat' sound typical of a
    Kalashnikov she looked up to see the other compound north of their house it's
    already in flames, the next West of their compound was also in flames . She
    decided to lie-down low in the farm until morning.
    That was the longest night she ever experienced in her life it seems morning will
    never come. She got some respite from her long wait for morning when the cock
    crowed. At around 5:30 am she developed some boldness and decided to come
    out of hiding going into her house she decided to check her Children who were all
    sleeping in a room they were all dead in pool of their blood. She checked her
    room her husband too gone , dead. She could not hold herself any longer she
    shouted.
    Unknown to Madam Sarah other villages such as Me-sankwai, Tekum and
    Ungwan Gatah were also attacked and it was simultaneous at 11pm. The
    Operation took 3 hours and no Single security in form of Soldiers or Police came
    for their help. 100 people Babies, Children, Young and Old lost their lives that
    night many roasted while sleeping in their homes that night of March 2014 in
    those villages in Moroa Chiefdom of Kaduna State.
    Many villagers when they were asked said they don't know why the Fulanis did
    that. They said if the Fulanis have problem with them why didn't they come for
    dialogue? But how would they even have dialogue when you don't know who you
    are going to talk to?
    The Fulani massacre have today taken another Dimension. They kill at will and
    claim they stole their cows. ..Imagine the fabricated lies. If your cows are stolen
    are you not confident of a regime headed by a Fulani man, can't you report to the
    appropriate authorities. It was reported that 1.3m Middle belters have moved from
    their ancestral homes due to this attacks by both Fulanis and Boko Haram.
    The Fulanis have a Motive. Read this:
    On October 2nd 2014, Alhaji Aliyu Gwarzo, a prominent Fulani leader from Kano,
    said the following words to Point Blank News Magazine. He said,
    "when I say that the Presidency must come to the north next year I am referring to
    the Hausa-Fulani core north and not any northern Christian or Muslim minority
    tribe.
    The Christians in the north such as the Berom, the Tiv, the Kataf, the Jaba, the
    Zuru, the Sayyawa, the Bachama, the Jukun, the Idoma and all the others are
    nothing and the muslim minorities in the north, including the Kanuri, the Nupe, the
    Igbira, the Babur, the Shuwa Arabs, the Marghur and all the others know that when
    we are talking about leadership in the north and in Nigeria, Allah has given it to
    us, the Hausa-Fulani.
    They can grumble, moan and groan as much as they want but each time they go
    into their bedrooms to meet their wives and each time they get on their prayer
    mats to begin their prayers, it is we the Fulani that they think of, that they fear,
    that they bow to and that they pray for.
    Some of them are even ready to give us their wives and daughters for one night's
    sport and pleasure. They owe us everything. This is because we gave them Islam
    through the great Jihad waged by our father the great Usuman Dan Fodio.
    We also captured Ilorin, killed their local King and installed our Fulani Emir. We
    took that ancient town away from the barbarian Yoruba and their filthy pagan
    gods. We liberated all these places and all these people by imposing Islam on
    them by force.
    It was either the Koran or the sword and most of them chose the Koran. In return
    for the good works of our forefathers Allah, through the British, gave us Nigeria to
    rule and to do with as we please. Since 1960 we have been doing that and we
    intend to continue.
    No Goodluck or anyone else will stop us from taking back our power next year. We
    will kill, maim, destroy and turn this country into Africa’s biggest war zone and
    refugee camp if they try it.
    Many say we are behind Boko Haram. My answer is what do you expect? We do
    not have economic power or intellectual power. All we have is political power and
    they want to take even that from us.
    We must fight and we will fight back in order to keep it. They have brought in the
    infidels from America and the pigs from Israel to help them but they will fail. The
    war has just begun, the Mujaheddin are more than ready and by Allah we shall
    win.
    If they don’t want an ISIS in Nigeria then they must give us back the Presidency
    and our political power. Their soldiers are killing our warriors and our people every
    day but mark this: even if it takes one hundred years we will have our revenge.
    Every Fulani man that they kill is a debt that will be repaid even if it takes 100
    years. The Fulani have very long memories.".
    Men like Alhaji Aliyu Gwarzo have clearly become prisoners of their own vain
    fantasies and dark delusions. They represent the ''Chief Whip'' or ''the heavy
    muscle'' within the Fulani ruling class.
    They are direct, crude, threatening and vulgar and they come across like boastful
    bullies and motor-park touts.
    Yet despite this they must be taken very seriously because they represent an
    increasingly powerful and strong-willed tendency within the circles of caliphate
    power and the Fulani ruling elite.
    A slightly more refined yet equally eloquent testimony of their battle-ready
    temperement and mindset was provided by none other than President
    Muhammadu Buhari himself in 2013 when he said that if what happened in 2011
    during the Presidential elections happens again in 2015 and he ends up losing to
    President Goodluck Jonathan, who happens to be a southern Cristian, ''the dog
    and the baboon will both be soaked in blood". His words are few yet his point was
    well understood.
    Finally let us consider the contribution of the respected elder statesman, Alhaji
    Lawal Kaita, to the discourse when he said, before the Presidential election in
    2011, that ''power must return to the north otherwise we (meaning northerners)
    would make the country ungovernable''.
    Jonathan went ahead to win the election and Lawal Kaita and co. went ahead to
    honor their word: from 2011 till 2015, make the country ungovernable they
    certainly did.
    These are shocking and deeply troubling contributions from these Fulani leaders
    and the import of their insidious threats are self-evident. They need no further
    analysis or explanation here.
    In the light of all this one thing remains clear: it is time for us to do whatever it is
    that we must do to save our country and if those that believe that they own it
    refuse to be reasonable and fair to the rest of us, perhaps we should consider the
    possibility of redefining her.
    ********Most Nigerians including those affected in Kaduna , Plateau , Nassarawa ,
    Benue and Taraba are in denial about what is going on and some are just too
    intimidated and cowardly to acknowledge the problem let alone to speak out or to
    attempt to resist it.
    After Olu Falaye's Kidnap:just 1 Yoruba man we saw a strong worded warning
    from Afenifere to the Presidency. Ondo State recently gave a strong warning to
    any Fulani found causing trouble in that state. More than 300 killed in Agatu and
    no any strong word from any of you? This is rather absurd. We need to see a
    strong delegation from the Middlebelt lead by people like TY Danjuma, David Mark,
    David Jonah Jang, Jerry Gana and Zamani Lekwot to the Presidency warning in
    strong terms these Fulani atrocities.
    DON'T EVER SAY IT DOESN'T CONCERN YOU..IT ALL STARTED WITH THE TIVS
    WE CALL IT TIV / FULANI FIGHT, IT GOT TO THE BIROMS, IT WENT TO
    SOUTHERN KADUNA NOW IT'S IDOMA. ..IT WILL BE YOU TOMORROW.

    The Double Standard in the Continued Closure of the Kafanchan Campus of KASU.

     

    The Kafanchan Campus of the Kaduna State University (KASU) was closed on the 19th of December, 2016 and since then it has remained closed and the students of that campus left to idle away unnecessarily.  While they are made redundant, their colleagues in the Kaduna Campus of the same institution have been hitherto attending their classes and by implication attaining a comparative advantage.
