The DSS 🇳🇬 did a poor job monitoring intelligence on how the organizers of the seizure of the #Lekkitollgate orchestrated their plan. I tweeted on October 6th of an imminent shutdown of Lagos. On October 8th 2020 I tweeted using a fire 🔥 emoji revealing a plan to BURN DOWN LAGOS
@akintollgate called me a crack cocaine addict that was endangering the lives of Rinu, Hundeyin and DJ Switch. @dipoaina1 cautioned him on such language. Akin can you tell us about the secret meeting on the 10/8/20 about the distribution of PETROL ⛽️ to protesters ?
Many mainstream journalists were fully aware of that meeting and discussed it in their various secret WhatsApp groups. They targeted installations belonging to the Tinubu family while trying to justify the mayhem on their imaginary hoodlums. The Lagos panel was NOT ENOUGH ‼️

😅😅😅 Ijeoma stop saving face. Because you're the MD of @ARISEtv is not enough. Journalist of the year in This day Top 10 Journalists in Nigeria yet nobody knows you. The same Ijeoma who asked the control room to remove journalist from my name on a critical interview. Jealous?
Ijeoma have you ever wondered why I never came back to Arise TV? Obaigbena in London invited me back to continue Hushpuppi's story. You don't even know what's happening in your own station. Your employees despise you. You are a power hungry ratings starved media practitioner Image
Why were you so jealous of me that you asked your control room to change my name from Investigative journalist to "Blogger and Social Commentator?" You allowed David Hundeyin to defame personalities on your station. Looks like you're the only one who hasn't banned him🙄 ImageImage

1. A Dream covered in Gold, & said to posses an almost magical powers that will transform Nigeria, for good. A man (not a Saint), is trailing the blaze of what will soon become, A New Nigeria. A Peaceful Political Revolution is underway. WALK WITH ME, I’ll tell you A Great Story.
2. Night of 25th Feb will be fought hard & won. It’ll be a very long night, but it’ll mark the transformation of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, into the Citizens Republic. Youths of Nigeria rushed to the polling units on a Rescue Mission. A mortal is inspiring their confidence.
3. At the last minute of the last count, the legion of youths drove back the Enemies of Nigeria through the ballot boxes. The Citizens Republic is about to conquer the land. Nigeria has come a long way. Although it had Great Promise at inception, its History is soaked in blood.

2023: Remember #EndSARS, Mr Macaroni Counsels Youths

Nigerian thespian, Debo Adedayo popularly known as Mr Macaroni, on Monday, urged Nigerian youths to vote wisely in the upcoming general election. Image
He added that the youths should remember the pain from the #EndSARS protest of October 2020 in determining who they vote for.
Mr Macaroni, who had been trending on social media over alleged death threats from the supporters of presidential candidate, tweeted,

@TolulopeAbeey @DailyPostNGR I know that you are too young to know these things, but you aren't too young to learn from your elders or to at least google. Or are you?

In Nov 1999, OPC claiming to fight for Yorubas slaughtered Hausas without mercy. OBJ ordered the Police to shoot anyone called OPC on sight
@TolulopeAbeey @DailyPostNGR In Oct 2000, OPC also clashed with Northerners pretending that they were fighting for Yoruba. 80 people were reported dead. Police said 6 OPC died. OPC said its 9.
@TolulopeAbeey @DailyPostNGR In 2002, OPC also slaughtered Hausas and other northerners again claiming that they were also fighting for Yoruba.
The casualty figures was allegedly 55 dead, 200 injured and 57 seriously injured (some of whom later died).

What changed? There's a new governor in Anambra State to whom I addressed my tweets to: (1) Release the results of the pathology tests conducted on the dead; (2) Release the findings of Sens Nwagu/Magoro Committee which took over the investigation from Anambra State
3. Release the Report on #Endsars.
Since you've at last taken interest in a subject that I've become the lone voice crying in the wilderness for justice, you can join me. Justice has no borders.
What changed? I prefer someone who described killings in his state as barbaric, took steps to ensure justice for the dead, though frustrated by the center intent on covering, to someone who witnessed stonecold murder in broad daylight, tweeted against it, then deleted his tweet

1. Like many too numerous to mention, David Hundeyin & DJ Switch, abandoned their whole life, businesses & livelihoods. They abandoned their friends & families, & all they held dear, bcos Tinubu & Sanwolu invited the military. They are on Exile, not by choice. IT’S A SAD STORY.💔
2. To many of us, #EndSARS is a scar that won’t go away, a horror we’ve been compelled to live with, forever. But one Small Alhaji (an APC politician) wants us to forgive Tinubu? Forgive him for what? What is there to forgive? Has he even admitted his guilt? What’s going on?
3. What are we missing? Has Tinubu admitted people died? Who switched off the lights? The denials, lack of empathy & emotional blackmail the BMC unleashed on us, the brown envelop journalists they activated to gaslight us, they were just too much. Many of us went into hiding.

1. Begging me to forgive Tinubu, is the same as saying I should allow Mc Oluomo, Seyi Tinubu, all their Lagos thugs, all their tribal & religious bigots & the BMC, into my house. Tinubu & his men are a threat to my life. We cannot afford another 8 years of misfortunes & deaths.
2. Anyone campaigning for Tinubu & the APC is a threat to my life. BAT said he will continue with Buhari’s legacies. He is telling us he will continue to administer: banditry & insurgency, the depreciating Naira, maddest inflation, ASUU Strikes, National Grid Collapses & so on.
3. Don’t excuse cold calculated murder for politics. People died at the Lekki Tollgate, REAL people. Till date, APC still denies that. They should fear God. Please fear God. Nigerians were dealt with terribly blows by the APC. A lot happened in 7+ years, they are still happening.

My People, they are begging us to forgive Tinubu for allowing the army murder our Comrades at the Lekki Tollgate, during our #EndSARS Peaceful Protests. NOW THEY NEED OUR VOTES? NOW THEY CAN BEG? If we let them in, they will kill & finish all of us. APPLY WHAT??????✊✊
I’ve always said told them that #EndSARS is marathon not a sprint!! We need the bodies of our comrades that died at the Lekki Tollgate, to give them a proper burial. While at it, Sanwolu must tell us WHO ORDERED THE SHOOTING?
Someone said, “how do we forget this? We need a tutorial on how to forgive this.” Tinubu is Evil, including Sanwolu, their online attack dogs & Political thugs. Karma came so fast!! Feb, pls hurry!!🙏

I missed my flight from Lagos to Enugu and opted to travel by road because rescheduled flight will be in 2 days time but I must report to work the next day. Luckily I got a siena bus loading to Enugu.
Shortly after we passed Ore heading to Benin, we were stopped by a special police unit that mounted check point. Looking inside the car, they singled out a young man sitting in front beside the driver. They took the boy inside the Bush for search,
after about 45 min, the young man came out said they saw atm card with him, asked other 2 passengers they picked from another vehicle to transfer 100k into his account so he can use their POS to debit his account and credit the POS account.

This is not the first feudal class in history

Its why i encourage people to read up on feudalism - Looks like "failure" to you but its a perverse social order in which you're supposed to be a peasant

The #EndSARS massacre has also happened before - Feudalists are predictable
There is also a reason ASUU is on strike for near a year & leadership is comfortable - Their children are the only ones supposed to be educated per feudal philosophy

Also why having greatest number of poor people in the world doesn't bother them - Peasants are meant to be poor
People raised in westernised societies assume its always been "normal" for education to be a constitutional right of all citizens - There were literally laws barring ordinary citizens from getting an education

It took revolt, blood & sacrifice to get here for ordinary citizens

The failed ruling party did not miscalculate. Polarizing voters is a political strategy. Their chance of winning the next election stands at > 50% right now. We can only stop them through a radical political movement. This is the big opportunity. I hope we can rise to this moment
The ruling party’s candidate is no joke; he is super strategic and Machiavellian. You will only advance his strategy by antagonizing his choice on the basis of religion. You must remember the demographic advantage of his religion in Nigeria. It’s even wider electorally.
They are counting on a hardline base, state structures, and a divided opposition. Let's risk it all now: ditching the seemingly safe, structured, old-guard alternative. We need the poor, hungry, and victimized to become a new insurgent tribe. We all know who inspires us now.

@toluogunlesi I am ready to "reason" with you on this.
#APCandPDPSamePartyWithTwoOffices is not about the people in them. It is about how they act.
1) APC & PDP have competent candidates in their parties but they always choose the worst to give tickets to.
Tinubu & Atiku are egs
You will agree with me that Atiku and Tinubu are not the most competent in both PDP and APC but they emerged with the party tickets.
That's why we say #APCandPDPSamePartyWithTwoOffices
2)Both APC and PDP have shown and demonstrated it is all about how much money you have and not about your competence, character and capacity when it comes to clinching their ticket.

You don't have to be a genius to figure out a few things.

These young ones do not fit into the strict, hierarchy driven "you must respect your elders" mindset that governs previous generations.

And in an increasingly globalised, networked world, they don't have to.
Nigerian corporate culture, is rigid, master-servant relationship driven and retrogressive - and they are having none of it.

"You must have a 2:1, be less than 26 years, be prepared to carry your oga/madams laptop bag when he/she arrives office".

No time for that nonsense.
They can do #300DaysOfCode, or something, and prepare themselves for some remote IT role - with a much better work-life balance and better pay, or they could explore the world outside Corporate Nigeria/Nigeria.

Many bosses in Corporate Nigeria are yet to figure this out.

For the right thinking citizens wondering what the agonizing mob is all about trying to impugn my integrity and those of others, it is simple. #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG established by @SIAF_NG successfully as a common ground on national security has brought Nigerians together.
This was the first of its kind in years since independence. Nigerians haven’t quite succeeded in agreeing on anything nationally due to political suspicion & our diversity which leaders have mismanaged due to selfish political influence. All these were considered before we began.
Between 2015/16 thereabout we engaged young Nigerians on their concerns on the culture of impunity and specifically police brutality which cost many lives of young people across Nigeria. No one dared to ask questions & forced disappearance was common in cases involving the police

For the record, there are several types of dishonesty that do not involve direct falsehoods. It's possible to lie by omission, implication and misrepresentation.

Whether this bloke did not expressly claim to be a lawyer or not, he DID absolutely misrepresent himself as one.
His repeated use of the term "Distinguished" in his engagement here had only one clear and obvious implication.

His constant humorous jibes where he'd say "my client" this, and "we are suing" that were not mere jokes. They contained an unspoken but very clear implication.
His offering of what purported to be legal reviews of several pieces of legislation including the CAMA 2020 bill and the Police Reform Act 2020 was very clear and unsubtle signaling.

Even I at a time believed him to be a lawyer before I bothered to take a second look at him.

Mahn! The scrutiny Peter Obi is getting. Can only mean one thing. They are scared. They know. They're evil geniuses. They know that if he is not stopped, there will be problem. This onslaught is not organic. It is orchestrated. They're ensuring the horse doesn't bolt.

They're applying lessons from #EndSARS. If this Peter Obi-centred movement is allowed to proceed at this pace, it will spiral to what they cannot control. The gatekeepers of our status quo are united to derail the train & sadly, they have complicit enablers as always.
They don't like structureless as our recent history has proven. Structureless cannot be controlled, negotiated & traded off. That is their biggest fear with this movement. The amorphous, organic nature. Again, the elites are united to put a stop to this uncontrollable train.

Dear Nigerian Youth
They are doing the same thing they did during #EndSars, put you on the defensive! Just like they started accusing the protesters of the violence they instigated
You are not responsible for any supposed Peter Obi supporter attacking anyone.
Focus on campaign!
The strategy is to keep you explaining yourself and distracted while you lose ground on the momentum that is building.
Anyone telling you that they will not support Peter Obi because of abusive online supporters is not worth wasting time on.
Meet those who are undecided and open
The establishment is absolutely afraid of you. They have seen the fact that you are taking back your power and that scares them. They will do anything. Be prepared for more!
They will even pitch you against each other and cause mayhem.
Just stay focused!

The Richest “Babalawo/Ifa Priest” With High Fashion-Sense in the world - Babalorisa Paulo Ty Omulu II

Thread! Retweet and Comment

Babalorisa Paulo Ty Omulu II popularly called Baba Paulo

Man of God okowa James brown ganduje Wike south south spag agbado Sega #endsArs #gistlover
Generally people say there is no rich babalawo in the world, they are struggling themselves living in an old ugly shrine and looking unkept, their client looks more wealthy than the babalawos

But they promise good fortune, riches that they themselves do not possess.
But in this case, this babalawo is totally different from the rest.

For those who do not know who a babalawo is, a babalawo is a Nigeria native doctor, juju master, witch doctor, voodoo master etc

The richest babalawo in the world happens to be a Yoruba fine juju doctor who is

Much has been tweeted on strategy. @Chxta did a brilliant thread on it. @AishaYesufu skirted around messaging in her tweet on Obi's programme. Lack of both has made tweets of some OBIdients I read problematic- I won't call them toxic.
What's strategy? What's messaging?
First, the main problem I see is that some OBIdients are stuck in the #Endsars mode and have left their pedals on the firing highs! Social campaigns aren't much about winning numbers. Political contest for power is different; it is about numbers. The more, the merrier.
When you support a candidate, your STRATEGY is all about positioning your candidate; it is about WHEN and HOW to position him/her. Having established the WHEN, you then look at the HOW - the TACTICS - the tools for implementing strategy.

Asides this VIDEO …. We also shared several videos like this of several victims of the looting that got massive help from @LSETF without knowing anybody … Till today, people still say nobody was compensated for their shops being looted during #EndSARS

More videos from @LSETF …. Several businesses were helped to get back on their feet after the looting during the #EndSARS period …. People got helped irrespective of tribe or religion by the State Govt.

1. Greatest Nigerian Youths!!! We have so much work to do. So I ask; are you reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaady?✊
2. Can you die for Nigeria? Is present-day Nigeria worth it? These are the question you must ask yourselves. When will the people be liberated? What form will it take? And what could intellectuals do to help?
3. More questions that begs for answers. Society is made up of millions of people & their stories. So I am writing the Memoirs of our recent past & putting the pieces together.

In recent times we all have been bludgeoned with all sorts of intimidating but baseless propaganda about the indomitability of the northern political manoeuvres going into 2023. Many have come to believe that:

Thread 🧵
1. The 2023 presidential election winner can only be decided by the north.

2. That the south is and will remain at the mercy of the north concerning the issues of the presidency of Nigeria.
3. That Atiku and his few other northern PDP aspirants are the only viable options for the party.

4. That the South East don't have the votes to support any candidate that may be chosen from there because they don't normally go out to vote.
