To the unclean, nothing can be clean, hence why you would say something so unbelievably stupid.

I should show you my classmates? I'll do you one better than that. I'll show you both my classmates AND my schoolmates.

You can see @azadvertised, Liz Idoko-Okogun and @NaetoC, yes?

You can see @adedoyinjai? That's another classmate.

I have nothing to show for myself except tweets? Well here are some things I've been achieving in life since I was 12 years old in 2003.

Unlike you criminals, I have nothing to conceal or hide from.

I landed in Zimbabwe earlier today, and I have been detained at Harare Airport inside a smelly locked room for nearly 7 hours.

They said that despite using the travel document of a country with a visa-free relationship, my nationality is still Nigerian, and thus, I need a visa.

I was processed for removal from their country and locked in a tiny room, but I have heard nothing from anyone for several hours.

Alongside a lady from Uganda (also a visa-free country), I have been locked in a room with no windows or toilet, plus a bottle of pee on the floor.

Pardon me as an outsider saying this, but I'm saying it as a friend.

If there is one crippling weakness in what is generally an economically and culturally progressive culture, it is its total aversion to investment in things that do not create a direct financial return. Things like media and public relations, arts & culture, lobby groups and think tanks, academic endowments and so on.

You cannot invest N1 in these things and directly trace how they return N5 to you. However they DO have substantial returns - just not direct or clearly visible.

Last night, I saw a video by @Fosudo that expanded my mind and made me understand why the political situation of southwestern Nigeria is where it's at.

It was a Mr Beast-style transformation of a family's home in Mushin which looked like this.

The glow-up consisted of painting and redecorating the apartment, installing new appliances including a fridge, AC, TV, sound system, washing machine and generator, putting in a new toilet with a functioning water closet system, and installing a tap in the backyard.

"You have to learn to be a lion so that you can be the lamb that you really are inside." - Dave Chappelle's mom.

Before people will learn to never fuck with you, they must first see how utterly, unreasonably horrible you are capable of being.

Then you will be free to be a lamb. My dad never lost his temper. He was ice. The most unruffled temperament you have ever seen.

Then one day in 2003, a drunk man slapped my mom in front of him and I saw him physically lift the man to chest height and body slam him.

I had never seen him display such violence.

I have you people's time this night since Burna Boy himself is too dumb to tell you wastes of space to leave me alone for his own sake.

And before his lawyers develop any ideas, I am at liberty to do this - Irebami and Tolu may have signed an NDA, but I didn't.

You pushed me. https://t.co/SI42svYrEQ

The images above are of the bullet hole left in the thigh of Irebami Lawrence on the night of June 8, during an altercation with Burna Boy's posse, as was widely reported.

The night started this way.

What I really want to see is how the Appeal Court and Supreme Court judges will manage to wriggle out of giving a remotely sensible judgment, given the ridiculous way that Bola Tinubu went about submitting forgeries as the hubris-filled fool that he is.

I really want to know.

You can literally visit and see where he got this forgery from.

Down to the same grammatical errors on the fake certificate!!!!!diploma-makers.com/fake-diploma-s…

I actually just read through this student loan act, and I've realised that I've been wasting my breath arguing.

Chapo Batman has no genuine intention of giving out any silly student loans. Na pure bobo. Baba just dey whine😂

Let me break down these loan conditions⬇️ Image That last line looks so innocent, but guess what? Have you ever tried submitting proof of income to a Nigerian government agency before? You know what document they ask for?

That's right - tax clearance certificate.

You know who that excludes? Every blue collar worker! Image

A heroin dealer makes his fortune by selling poison to the very people who can least afford it and are least able to get rehabilitated.

Rich, occasional users are not his reliable source of income. He NEEDS the customers who are living in poverty, misery, and helplessness. It is these poor, desperate users who have zero power to fix their addiction or do anything to him, that will make him rich.

They are the ones who will faithfully buy his heroin everyday, and will do ANYTHING to make sure they can afford it.

He's like Jesus Christ to them.

I know nobody is listening, and my tweet doesn't change the price of garri in the market, but for posterity:

The main problem with Nigerian tertiary education is *quality* not *access*.

Making said education more expensive under the guise of "student loans" changes nothing. I'm one of the few people who has experienced undergraduate education both in Nigeria and in the UK (1 year at @iuokadaofficial, 3 years at @UniOfHull), and by far the major difference between both experiences was level and quality of infrastructure, resourcing and instructors.

Just like with the fuel subsidy removal, even when they're trying to implement the correct policy, they stumble all over themselves like Bambi and create issues.

In what capacity is "Wale Edun" announcing a CBN monetary policy decision? Is he the de-facto CBN governor now? And why is this being announced to Bloomberg before implementation? Are you not basically giving people notice that they have an opportunity to profit from an impending forex arbitrage window?

Doesn't creating a circus like lead to even more speculative pressure?

You people had better do everything in your power to make sure that election tribunal does something unprecedented.

Because if this fellow successfully consummates his family's takeover of entire portions of Nigeria’s economy using govt fiat, we will NEVER be free of him again. If NNPC becomes a private subsidiary of Oando, he becomes to energy, what Dangote is to cement in Nigeria - a state-backed monopolist with absolute pricing power.

You already buy the world's costliest cement. You will have the world's costliest energy prices too.

Someone has created a botnet that scrapes Twitter looking for any mention of the word "nigga".

Whenever that word is mentioned, a bot account immediately replies to the tweet with an advertisement for illegal, unlicensed guns.

There is something deeply disturbing about this. Example right here on this thread

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan did not do a fraction of this to Lamido Sanusi Lamido, and the entire media and civil society space went into a meltdown that year.

Today we are watching this and there is radio silence. One day, our kids will ask us questions. I hope we have answers. Not that I have any sympathy whatsoever for Godwin Emefiele, who himself has aided and abetted criminality, and is Nigeria's undisputed worst-ever CBN governor, having overtaken Paul Ogwuma the moment he started using CBN infrastructure to hunt innocent teenage protesters.

One reason I desire a Peter Obi presidency so much is so that this malaria fever dream called "national carrier" can die its long-overdue death once and for all.

I find the idea economically ruinous to the point of being genuinely offensive. It's like wanting a return of NITEL. Nigeria has only 4 viable airports (Lagos, Abuja, PH & Kano). The remaining 19 are subsidy elephants that don't see enough passengers to pay for their own costs.

Arik and Aero, 2 of Nigeria's 3 largest airlines, are in receivership. The market is anaemic, and growth is dead.

What is always left out of this story whenever it is told is that Dele Giwa, legendary as he was, happened to be quite friendly with IBB and the ruling establishment.

He thought he could expose them with journalism and be social with them at the same time. That was a mistake. In my opinion, it is his decision to contact IBB after getting Gloria Okon's proof of life that got him killed.

I'm not sure how he thought a sitting military president would react to a situation that IBB's testosterone-jacked NSO would have interpreted as blackmail.

I'm bored of saying it, but any Yoruba person reading this should please remember that there will still be life after Tinubu.

His mission to turn you and Igbo people into enemies for the sake of his short-term political interest will only spoil your life for no reason. Every single one of you has an Igbo family member. Every single one of you has a livelihood whose economic supply chain has Igbo people in it.

They are your neighbours, co-workers, friends, and family. In 1,000+ years of West African history, you and them have never fought.

Let me also make it clear that regardless of what happens at the election tribunal, anyone expecting me to go away and crawl into some hole somewhere is experiencing a malaria hallucination.

I. Am. Not. Going. Anywhere.

If you want to die, die. I'm on the right side of history. If the judiciary sides with the drug pusher, that's cool. I love it for them - it has no impact on what my mission here is.

If you think you "won" and I "lost" because I'm a journalist who did my job in a corrupt system, I love it for you too.

Imagination will not kill you IJN.
