I dey my own in August 2020 when GEJ's blood sauntered into my WhatsApp and asked for an audience. When we met, all he said was, " Number 1 wants you to set up a small intellectual team for his campaign".

I gaped at him like a fresh wound.
How? I asked.
Buhari has promised to hand over to him. They are discussing.

I told him: "Tell No.1 to dead the idea. Nigeria is gone beyond where we were in 2015 and beyond his capacity. Btw, 2023 is SE turn".

He has never spoken to me again.
Just two years later the familiar Abuja gangster began screaming #GEJisCOMING. They collected money. Now, they've moved to another meal ticket, #Unifier
Even that Boluxx lady who claimed Osinbajo sacked her started spewing trash on my TL when I tweeted that GEJ isn't coming
Today, we now know who is right.

Good morning from the sanctum sanctorum of the shrine.

The debate on colonialism has really shaped up on the Nigerian twitter. But, what the debate appears to gloss over is that essential character of history: that history is like Ijebu garri; it rises and rises, in spite of attempts to suppress it.
Other aspects of history that has been glossed over in the debate is the ideological womb of imperialism that has given birth to colonialism, neocolonialism and internal colonialism.
Much hasn't been debated about neocolonialism and internal colonialism
Nkrumah was clear about neocolonialism as the last stage of imperialism; but a generation of Africans aren't seeing the more destructive effects of neocolonialism, so they place emphasis on colonialism. We see how economic, political, social and cultural pressures are used

Have just listened to bits of the space recording of @DeleAlake. Two things are clear, and as a preface to some of his outlandish claims, I intend to correct them as follows:
1. NADECO never ORGANISED a single street protest in the heyday of resistance to military tyranny.
2. The CLOSURE of 3M Bridge and other bridges across the Lagoon in July 1993 was was orchestrated by the Campaign for Democracy (CD), which was never a structure of NADECO.
I need to give material particulars to the closure as follows:
a. The Herbert Macauly/Oyingbo accesses to 3MM and Carter Bridges were held down by CD activists led by late Innocent Chukwuma, former Director of Ford Foundation West Africa.
b. The Island accesses, which included cutting off the accesses to all foreign embassies,

'just read the tweet-thread of Onwuchekwa Martins. He addresses the ontology of the #Obidient movement and contextualises it. The movement is not driven by rent or the 'ism' of ideology - I've always expressed this.
For me, the movement, driven by the youths and the "common people" who reject our establishment politics that has become too elitist and insular, is ideological to the extent that is national and socially populist.
You just have to look elsewhere in our history to identify how it connects to the Zikist movement of the 1940s. And, perhaps, elsewhere in the farmers movement which birthed the Texas Peoples Party after the American civil war.

Bandits impose levies on farmers in many parts of the North. Terrorism, thinly disguised as banditry, as become a form of government in the north. Bar Kwara and Kogi - even in Kogi, ISWAP is becoming visible- there's no safe haven in the North.
Will 2023 poll hold?
The question answers itself and presupposes two "IFS".
1. If election doesn't hold, what will happen? If the election holds, what will happen?
a. It will precipitate a constitutional crisis.
b. Results will be written in virtually 17 states of the north
2. If the conditions that appear now to threaten 2023 persist, what will happen?

If you are a student of history and an expert in military vanguardism, you'd know that it is these conditions that precipitate military putsch.

7 August 2022. A supertanker was stopped by NS Gongola on our waters in Bonny. According to the Navy, it had no NNPC clearance to lift crude. Then, it was allowed to proceed to Bonny deepshore to lift crude.
Now, here's the intriguing bit >>>
Before a supertanker lifts crude, it is moored to the single point moorings SPM of the deepshore. At that point, the Supertanker is tightly moored against choppy waters and adverse weather conditions to allow geostatic electrical systems to pump crude into it.
The supertanker had become a sitting duck at that point. Why was it not boarded by the Navy and confiscated since it was illegally in Nigerian waters?
The supertanker, having been loaded returned to sea and refused to stop when it was asked to by NS Gongola.

@abati1990 is wrong on his characterisation of the social media. The virtual space/social media - an interaction of interactive computer systems- is dependent on two properties/processes of the real world space:
1. Navigation
2. translocation
The second - transportation/translocation- is a fiction, as no real translocation/transportation of a voter for example happens between the real world and the virtual space. An Obidient who logs on his social media account, thus establishing his/her digital footprints,
is physical rooted in his/her real world with his/her PVC. The translocation/transportation to the virtual space doesn't in anyway diminish his/her capacity to vote. Or his/her sovereignty. So, the talk about the social media not being a polling unit is nonsense really.
