Now my thread declaring the #WordOfGod against #WickedRulers in our own Land whose evil works have risen to His nostrils at this point.

The scriptures are never broken. The Word of God is like hammer 🔨.

God’s zeal performs His Word✍🏾✍🏾 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. Bring no more vain oblations;
Isaiah 1:10

I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD. And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
Ezekiel 2:4-5
#WatchDuty #WordofGod🇳🇬 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions:
Ezekiel 2:6

There is a difference between the Economic Management Team set up for the 1st time ever in 2003 by President Obasanjo and the National Economic Council established by the 1999 Constitution as amended; Section 153(1) and Paragraphs 18 & 19 of Part I of the Third Schedule.

Thread. The Presidential Economic Management Team
(we called it “The Economic Team” for brevity) was a Technical Team of 12 persons from a range of expertise whom President Obasanjo constituted to drive Nigeria’s Economic Reform Agenda during his 2nd Term in office 2003-2007.

I love You, Lord
For Your mercy never fails me
All my days, I've been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

#MyGratitude2022💝🙇🏾‍♀️🙇🏾‍♂️ And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

#MyGratitude2022🎷💝🙇🏾‍♀️🙌🏾

In that singular act of siding with his Minister of Communication, @NGRPresident @MBuhari actually conveyed a message on his view of terrorism. Nigerians now know that his views align with that of his Minister.
It is now left to Nigerians to convey whether we agree with them✍🏾 I do not agree with @NGRPresident @MBuhari and his Minister of Communication that any citizen can get away with such bloodcurdling rhetorics the latter made through the years. Worse that one who swore an oath to public office said and did the things @NigeriaGov has waved off.

A Thread.

As a Believer, one of the greatest tests of my life is granting real forgiveness to all those who because of Politics twisted my deep agony and agitation for rescue of ChibokGirls into all forms of wicked accusations I have had to bear since 2014. And yet I must. In this 2018 tweet, I was recounting how the @BBCAfrica handle broke the news of the abduction of ChibokGirls on the 15th and my immediate reaction was to ask them if the news was “verified”.
I mean, it was hard to imagine hundreds of schoolchildren being abducted. It was hard.

.@MBuhari and those aiding him to avoid the truth of his collosal failure to lead this country well at this time, are doing themselves the worst damage.

Is the short term gain of continuing to preside over a collapsing country really worth it?

I think not. #KankaraStudents It is unnatural for a leader of a country and people to be as unperturbed like @MBuhari obviously appears in the face of the tragedies that daily befall citizens.

It is abnormal.
Hence my call for an independent medical evaluation of the state of his mind and body immediately.

Was it not in this country that rising to take a strong stand that young women who went to school and were abducted deserved the justice of rescue by their @NGRPresident and @NigeriaGov , earned one attacks, falsehoods, impugning, arrest and detention? It’s their way. Just stand! They lied to you that reason I, your fellow citizen was determined for #JusticeOfRescue to be given abducted children is “she wants to be minister”, “she’s looking for attention”, “she was hired as a consultant to embarrass xyz “, “ she is angry at xyz”.
You foolishly believed.

While other nations are trying to figure out their Post-COVID19 priorities and strategies, what do you think our own country is doing?

Well, @MBuhari is busy with repressive acts against his young citizens who merely asked to be allowed to live by the @PoliceNG he supervises.👎🏾 We are a constitutional democracy and actions must be anchored on the Rule of Law.

Miss Odele’s passport cannot be seized by NAIA Comptroller of Immigration on the “order” of @HQNigerianArmy without an Order granted by a court of the land.
We are not a military state, @MBuhari .

So, I have a message from the scriptures for young #EndSARS protesters!

It is from the Book of Jeremiah Chapter One.

Welcome to a Thread.
#DoNotSayIAmAYouth💡🔥 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

You hear me when I call
You are my morning song
Though darkness fills the night
It cannot hide the light

Whom shall I fear?

Underneath my feet
You are my sword and shield
Though troubles linger still
Whom shall I fear.

A short Thread.

I saw something this morning that reminded me to go read my pinned Tweet. /1

#EndSARS By now, any honest Nigerian knows I am simply huge of Citizens Voice.

It was reason I propounded the concept of the #OfficeOfTheCitizen at a #GenVoices event in 2014.

It is why I never cease to push Citizens to never slack in demanding for Good Governance and Accountability.

@funmioyatogun My dear Funmi, your tweet wrenched my heart because I do follow your exceptional hardworking trail on this Street.
1. Would you like to learn more about a non-partisan initiative @fixpoliticsnig for structural change of our Political Culture and its perennial dismal outcomes? @funmioyatogun @fixpoliticsnig A minimum threshold of effective Public Governance that enables Citizens and Business is central to all prosperous societies. We’ve lacked that. The root is “a political culture that subordinates Collective Interest to Private Gain”. We must #FixPolitics for Good Governance.

And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men. Acts24v16

#WordOfLife I have an amazing life.😁

Two consecutive administrations and their numerous allies ever finding a common ground against one woman because she demands Public Accountability from those that govern.

Couldn’t wish for a more Purposeful Life!

Will never stop praising God for this!

Oh Lord, my God, Jesus
I'll speak of Your Glory,
I’ll show forth Your beauty

And If I shout it won't be enough
I'll speak of Your Glory,

If I dance it won't be enough,

You are worthy to be praised
You are Alpha and Omega, I worship you today
In you I put my trust, Your name I will extol.

The fastest route to the destruction of the social fabric of Nigeria is the Culture of Impunity.

What is Impunity?
It is the “exemption from punishment or freedom from the injurious consequences of an action.”

Imagine then how horrible it is for such thing to become a Culture. Anything that attains the height of a Culture for any society of people never happens overnight. It takes a gradual condoning of a word, thought, mindset, behavior and such like, by first a few who with the leverage of influence pull in others to their side and Culture happens.

It is crucial to know your area of comparative advantage. Many think this basic economics concept is passé but that not true at all.
It is at the heart of the differences in competitiveness and productivity of countries.
Imagine me collecting a form for Miss World Competition! As our world will gradually ease into a Post-CoronaVirus phase when countries reposition their economies, the African countries that will take-off faster and create new opportunities are the ones whose Political Leaders and Policymakers understand Comparative Advantage. /2

Power in the hands of persons without self-discipline in the absence of social accountability creates monsters in any society.

Lord Acton will forever be right.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely. I have seen enough flagrant abuse of power among our political class to know that both they and citizens are still enamored of the unaccountable governance style of the inglorious military era.

Such arrogance of power against citizens because of delegated temporary ‘title’.

I came on @Twitter eleven years ago in April of 2009.

In all its Good, Bad and Ugly moments, one thing stands out for me: I love that many more citizens use their Voice.

If you are one of the 1 Million people that follow this handle, I hope we continue learning together.🙏🏾 Thanks @ChineEzeks for making me join @Twitter to be able to engage my passion of teaching Public Policy . You gave me the insight on hashtags and helped birth #PublicPolicy101.

The vision stays alive.

Daaalu! 🤴🏿❤️🤗🙏🏾
