Smear campaign with falsehood is petty politics. People will always find some dirts to pull you into when they cannot present a superior argument at your level of dialogue. Politicians however need no veneration, but trying to create an absurd narrative to discredit is dumb.
Clearly in my view the primaries is between former VP HE @atiku and Senate President HE @bukolasaraki and the process of the emergence of either. We can only hope it is transparent, free and fair. Needless to say all aspirants are a million times better than the current disaster!
What those currently afraid of the imminent & abrupt end of their benefit from bloodletting, impunity & misrule of now want, is for an easy to discredit aspirant to emerge so they can heave a sigh of relief. Their greatest nightmare however is Saraki who’s demonstrably enigmatic.

I just published “Will Police Reform Work Sustainably This Time? —…
For the sakes of headline junkies let me dissect the thoughts in that piece.

The journey thus far has been daunting to say the least & the most common questions have been; “Can the pronouncements be trusted?” “Will the Reforms be real and felt on ground?”
“We have heard many terms before and nothing has changed since the sundry political pronouncements” someone said to me, while walking out of the Force HQ in Abuja. A channels TV reporter specifically asked what is being done differently now for citizens to be optimistic?

Apology accepted Distinguished. Ego has no room in credible leadership. We are all wired as a solution to specific issues and must not drown in the red ocean of violent & needless competition. I’ve got no such interest in identity politics of hate. I’m just standing in the gap.
Those interested in political position are forever free to express their interest. I have made it clear 15years back that I have no plan of going that route even with all the right connections and track record. The APC that has made monsters of our youth was merged by my team.
If I had wanted political power I would have gotten it easily under any admin for that matter. But this is far from my purpose. The people have been through a lot in almost 60years Of independence and I believe it is time Democracy delivers. This is what I’m about void of self.

There is this special feature in my book #AfricanCloudCuckooLand that chronicled my consultancy in the region of crisis management, which aligned my path with Distinguished Honorable @alouibrahim92 in 2014. Here is a short story. @APCNigeria @MBuhari #HarmonyNG
I knew this honorable in the line of duty during Chibok Negotiation while he was the Chairman, house committee on internal security. We didn’t meet physically until last quarter of 2014 as introduced to me by a mutual friend before becoming my twin on a mission for #NewNigeria
A die hard CPC member until we were consulted to merge their treasured party with APC in 2013. No doubt we have our pockets of differences as much as we have similarities but our common ground remain the legacy we hope to leave behind for our loved ones and children.

We WON Guys! #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG @julietkego @Tutsy22 @DrJoeAbah Time to build a new. The #NewNigeria is real. Congrats to @PoliceNG as we begin to reform. Out with the Old and welcome the New. 👏🏼👏🏼 #OsinbajoDelivers
Thanks @yemusan1 @koredebello @RuggedyBaba @fodewunmi @ChubaEzeks @Iykepfs @DrArowoloAyoola @ikehiemma and all the great people out there that have been contributing daily in the past one year. Now to focus on monitoring sustainably #ReformPoliceNG
The Devil is in the details. The implementation of the order is key. We will remain vigilant as we press on to ensure effective monitoring. Humans are weakest at the point of success but we must understand that success by itself is a journey & never a destination.

Jesus Christ cursed a Deceptive Tree! You’ll wonder what the modern day pharisee will say to that. “Can you imagine? And he called himself a Christian. Lol...He is a putrid Fraud.” But Christ set this record for deeper reasons. Poverty=Lack Of Productivity (P) & (P)=Fruitfulness.
Unfruitful people are dens Of Evil. They are engrossed with themselves and preoccupied by survival thoughts by all means at all cost. They don’t care who dies for them to make their living. They are ready tools in the hands of any demon. This is why leaders emancipate people.
We ask questions on track records of our aspirants not because of the importance of their toil but to check if they are fruitful, innovative, capable, credible educated, informed, empathetic and conscientious. Running for office must be an act of service not the creed of greed.

It’s a shame Yabatech is still operating from the ‘School of Tension’ perspective after many years. Most of my first year courses were self studied after some tyrannical lecturers sent me out for asking a difficult question. The often inebriated fellow eventually sacked the class
We will meet in the exam hall he said storming out of the class. This was accounting. A core course. The same thing happened in Statistics class. I had to teach tutorials at several departments at a fee just to manage the crowd. We saved lives back then. Sad the culture persists.
I’m happy we have a strong voice and perspicacious leader handling education sector reform in our Blockchain @julietkego When we get there you will feel her uniqueness. The #NewNigeria is real.

We understand the toll the deliberate impoverishment of the masses may have taken on those who carry guns. The leadership of SARS/Police Are no enemies. The campaign never said everyone is evil. We are simply demanding that they become accountable. Do we celebrate their crimes?
If 8 of 10 encounters across Nigeria shows Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Extortion, Abuse Of Human Rights, intimidation and outright high handedness in your opinion we should focus on the 2 cases of the parade of innocent citizens as armed robbers? 🤔
People should understand that a lot of hard work is at play here beyond Socialmedia to help Police hierarchy get the true picture and spread the enlightenment to their men who really may have lost their ways. This is not benchmark and best practices. This is anarchy on steroids.

I will forever come clean to you. I have never been under so much pressure both from those who now believe they have a team player and those who need me on their side to assure themselves that their political enemies won’t have a munition in me. But I will never leave the people.
Over the years we have seen many Activists compensated to leave their struggle. Many are living examples of this compromise but thankfully I am No One let alone an Activist. If there is such a political party as Independents, that is where I will be. Right by the people.
For many years Power has come at the expense of Change because the flesh & wants for vanity have lured valiant men to the temptation of compromising their convictions. The people deserve a critical mass of transformational leaders & enlightened followers who won’t need an office.

Whether we like it or not, history will reflect that under HE President @MBuhari and the 8th National Assembly headed by HE @bukolasaraki @SPNigeria and Rt Hon @YakubDogara @NGRHouse the over 70years old constitutional impediment to progress in Law & Order was lifted #PoliceACT
How this was achieved may not matter much in the long run but do let your children know that it happened based on the activation of the power of the citizenry. Hundreds of thousands of Nigerians rose up in support of a non-aligned Movement that birthed the political will.
It also significantly marked a period in our lives when we longer leave our collective destiny solely in the hands of politicians. We are closing institutional gaps and getting involved in Nation building. Leadership has been demonstrated to be possible from wherever we are.

We have reiterated that outside the Socialmedia awareness campaign and incident reportage, there is a lot of work going on in the background since Police Reform is a legislative matter. Here are the things you must know from the traction thus far. #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG
Today, the @NGRSenate passed for Second Reading A Bill to Repeal and Re-enact the Police Act of 1943. (This is a good place to celebrate a major milestone as mentioned on @ravetvchannel this morning). Though we are not out of the woods yet....#EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG
This is following last week’s resolution by the Senate to direct its constitutional review committee to put in place the machinery to amend theConstitution to allow for the creation of State Police & the mandate that the PoliceReformBill must be passed within the next two weeks

Had a chat with @tybellotweets on Nigeria’s trajectory as done every time we get the chance to catch up. Coincidentally she too has been pondering how we are being systematically conditioned to be #COLD & She got up one day & travelled out of town to shoot some photos...
“OUR HEARTS get COLDER everytime we turn away from bloodshed around us. We have to WAKE UP and be human again” she said. setting the song to images made photographing survivors of terror in the North East... #COLD #AmINext
She too hopes to stir our hearts once again to compassion for the people we share our country with. We must come out from behind our walls to see... feel and most importantly do what is RIGHT. This song is not where the message ends... Its the beginning of a new conversation.

There’s been this auditory disturbance about the mythical & wishful thinking “Third Force” ideology. An invention of some sort of a constellation of people who believe this is a great idea towards intervention. Here are some thoughts however; “All Logo No Brand”
It is such a shame that most people with a stint of an appointment under any admin, automatically assume they have been baptized as professional politicians and are entitled to erroneous ironclad guarantees on political outcomes.
You shouldn’t have to be convinced that seasoned Politicians are endangered species in our clime but the era of the proliferation of political hirelings, prostitutes, leap-froggers, nomads & morally bankrupt aspirants is upon us.
