Politics / How Nigeria Can Become A Top Ten Global Economic Power Within 15 Yearsear by MrPristine: 1:18pm On Sep 08
By Kunle Oshobi

Sometimes in April 2017, i had the privilege of meeting with Donald Duke. A man who i hold in very high esteem and consider to be the best performing governor in Nigeria’s recent history. I was there to lend my voice to the millions of young Nigerians then asking him to run for the office of the president based on his phenomenal performance as governor of Cross rivers state. He took to me very warmly and i was shocked at his level of simplicity as he discussed with me as if we were old friends.

Naturally our discussion was about Nigeria and the failure of the country to reach it’s potential despite the huge human and material resources that she had. I was able to perceive during the discussions a man who had a burning and passionate desire for the welfare of the Nigerian people and her economy. I was further elated when he eventually asked me to join his team of young friends that were working to realize the dream of a Donald Duke presidency in the run up to the 2019 elections.

In the cause of my working with the team, the issue of an economic plan which would form part of his manifesto came up. Given my background as an economist, i was quick in offering to write the plan for the campaign and this led to me have a series of meetings with Mr Duke in which he expressed his vision of growing the Nigerian economy by as much as 500% within fifteen years with the details of how to achieve this lofty goal. I was wowed by his deep level of understanding of the Nigerian economy and the innovative ideas he had to rapidly grow the country’s economy. The meetings also revealed to me why Donald Duke was such a huge success as governor. He was not only absolutely brilliant, he was PREPARED TO LEAD.

After months of hard work, the plan which promised to radically transform the Nigerian economy was ready. Unfortunately due to restrictions of a court order, Mr Duke was unable to launch his presidential campaign and the economic plan which was a part of his manifesto was not released. But in my mind, i felt that it will be a shame and disservice to the country if the lofty ideas in the plan where not made public as a means of contributing to the country’s economic growth. So with the consent of Mr Duke, i re-worked the economic plan into a book form and got it published. The title “Project Nigeria: Building the country of our dreams” was then chosen to capture the essence of the book.

“Project Nigeria: Building the country of our dreams”, is essentially a practical roadmap to transform the Nigerian economy into one of the biggest economies in the world within the next fifteen years. It may seem far fetched but it’s very achievable with good planning and the right leadership as was the case in Singapore that went from being a third world country to a first world country in one generation, China went from being a poor country to being the second richest country in the world in less than thirty years and Dubai was turned from a barren desert to one of the most popular tourists destinations in the world in less than twenty five years.

“Project Nigeria” (ISBN: 9789789828470) is a 303 page book with 23 chapters that covers every aspect of the Nigerian economy and how to transform each sector of it. It starts with making a case for national re-orientation for Nigerians to bring out the best in us and goes on to make the audacious proposal that Nigeria sells all it’s investments in the oil industry and re-invests the proceeds in education and human capacity development as a way to ensure the long term sustainable development of the country.

There is also a bonus chapter at the end of the book which presents a strategic plan with which state governments can increase their IGR by up to 100% by formalizing the transport sector and other informal sectors in various states across the country. This will empower the state governments to contribute more significantly to the economic transformation plan presented in this book and improve on their service delivery to their people.

“Project Nigeria” has also enjoyed a lot of local an international attention with representatives of the German government asking for copies of it to study.

If you are a Nigerian and you are interested in the economic growth and development of Nigeria or you are just curious to know how Nigeria can transform from being a poor third world country to become a global economic power within the next fifteen years or you just want to contribute your quota towards developing the country, then “Project Nigeria: Building the country of our dreams” is a must buy for you and we can have it delivered to your door step at your convenience.

Religion / Sound Scriptural Perspective On The Trinity By Reno Omokri by MrPristine: 6:14pm On May 09
Sound scriptural perspective on the Trinity doctrine by Reno Omokri

Dear Oteikwu Onche,

This is where I admire Muslims. They don’t translate the Quran. They translate themselves. They learn Arabic, rather than convert the Quran into English.

Many Christians try to use John 1:1 to justify the Trinity and their belief that Christ is the same as God who sits on the Throne, and to Whom we pray. They quote John 1:1 as “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

But that is not what John 1:1 says in the original Greek Scriptures. I have this verse in manuscript form in the original Koine Greek. I have tweeted and facebooked a picture of it in the past.

The entire New Testament is written in Koine Greek. The first mention of God in the original Koine Greek of John 1:1 is Theon, while the second mention of the word translated God is Theos. These are Koine Greek words that have significance. For instance, Greeks called Zeus, who is the head of their pantheon of gods, Theon. They call Zeus’ children Theos. For instance, Dionysius, the son of Zeus is referred to as Theos. When you translate John 1:1 to Latin, the first use of the word God is translated Deum. The second use is translated Deus. They are not the same words.

Here is John 1:1 in the original Koine Greek:

Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος, καὶ ὁ λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν θεόν, καὶ θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος

Here is John 1:1 in the Latin Vulgate:

In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum.

Here is John 1:1 in modern Greek:

En arkhêi ên ho lógos, kaì ho lógos ên pròs tòn theón, kaì theòs ên ho lógos.

In the Greek Orthodox Church, they translate the word Theon as God, and the word Theos as Divine.

Bible scholars believe the word that should be used when translating the word Theos is ‘divine, or of divine origin’.

Unfortunately, most translators of Scripture in the Middle Ages were either Masons or Rosicrucians, and they translated Scripture according to their bias.

But the bottom line is Theon and Theos are two different words.

Others use 1 John 5:7 to justify the Trinity. Let me shock you. The word Trinity does not even appear in Scripture. And worse still, the words “and these three are one”, which appears in the King James Version, does not appear in the original Scripture.

That is why other than the King James Version, that sentence does not appear in other translations.

Do yourself a favour and cross check by opening any Bible app and comparing the various versions of 1 John 5:7.

I know it is difficult, but try to read Scripture in the original languages. It will be as if you are reading it for the very first time!

Politics / Amotekun: Almost A Missed Opportunity by MrPristine: 10:11am On Feb 05, 2020
Nigeria’s history is replete with a catalogue of missed opportunities and outright mistakes with our survival as a nation boiling down to the small matter of divine providence!Today,directly resulting from the federal government’s inability to provide basic human security,states in the Southwest region of the country have come up with a solution, Amotekun. Indecisive in contrast to the initiators of Amotekun, the federal government has lost an opportunity either to speedily take ownership of this contraption and give it legitimacy, or to decisively declare it illegal and then provide an alternative road map to peace and security.

While seeking to build public confidence and establishing the much-publicized 2019 defense/security strategy as a national working document or policy.FROM CONTRAPTION TO SOLUTION Almost lost in the euphoria celebrating its launch and the ensuing confusion surrounding its legality, especially while his kinsmen awaited the Asiwaju’s position on the matter, is the fact that Amotekun is one of the few great initiatives of an otherwise forgettable 2019 that started with possibly well-intended promises by the president but ended with the usual thud.With rising inflation, flailing security institutions, a noticeable lowering in the quality of life and standard of living of Nigerians due to a combination of global economic failings and half baked polices,the result is a frightful breakdown of law and order in many parts of the federation.

Oblivious to the fact that resolving our security challenges perhaps requires a shift in thinking alongside a grand strategy that clearly defines the type of peace and security sought for our people, our only consolation is that the Southwest has found a bold solution to its security problems in Amotekun. UNBUNDLING THE NARRATIVE Or is the government unaware that ungovernance prevails in large swaths of the country? That our security institutions are overstretched and underfunded with poorly equipped, trained and motivated personnel despite best intentions over the years. Necessitating the fundamental question who created the dilemma (Amotekun)? Governors of the Southwest states or the federal government through its inaction? In my professional opinion, managing this fault line now requires a come clean from the presidency.

Firstly, by acknowledging the utter failure, in clear terms, of its much-publicized National Defense/Security strategy document released in 2019 while figuring out a way to incorporate the concept, Amotekun, into our currently inflexible National Defense/Security strategy because of the brittleness exhibited by our security agencies in crime fighting. THE NATIONAL DEFENSE/SECURITY STRATEGY DILEMMA Inflexible for adaptation because it doesn’t critically consider broad and constant changes in our society, culture and politics as well as the security environment and emerging threats even if its makes reference to it in the Executive Overview, our current National Defense/Security Strategy is nothing more than an inoperable essay with no clear solution sets or pathways towards achieving basic outcomes. And once again, herein lies the challenge for the presidency.

With the presidency unable to decisively lean on its 2019 strategy document, evaluate its own options and proffer solution sets to counter the initiators of Amotekun, this viable self-help option is here to stay. Not only because it has been institutionalized, but because it has actually been operationalized. ASTUTENESS REQUIRED? Now any right thinking policy maker should consider Amotekun complimentary to the government’s security aspirations. Because it will lead to accountable hands on management by those directly under threat,within a regulatable framework, applying unified and standardized policies on funding, inter-agency cooperation, tactics, legislation, procurement, Command & Control and Rules of Engagement(ROE). So why not embrace it? Is it because it’s a novel concept? Would the presidency have reacted differently had Amotekun been initiated by states in the SouthSouth or Northwest? WILL IT HELP CRIME FIGHTING? The fundamental point here is its value addedness! Though I feel it was an opportunity lost on Amb Joe Keshi and his team at the BRACED Commission, many many years ago. Because it would have proved a novel and easy sell in the SouthSouth, then, where the local geopolitical conditions were more permitting and the initiators would easily have become rock-stars rather than antagonist.

As far back as 2012, I felt the smart way to go was to establish a regional security framework through Governors of the BRACED states. With an obviously open to ideas Governor General of the Southsouth, securing buy-in’sand contributory funding from the conglomerates and leading businesses in the region was a no-brainer. It appeared a logical next step as we approached the SouthSouth Economic Summit in Warri, where security was key on the agenda; but sadly we missed the boat. Indeed with the right Command & Control structure,backed by standardized operational procedures, in addition to a proper governance frame work to appease the multinationals. The shared financial burden enabling operational effectiveness for any broader security contraption, would clearly have addressed the issue of abdication of responsibilities.

Fast-forward to 2019, and governors in the Southwest have achieved this commendable feat. Once, which deserves commendation. CONCLUSION The presidency has adopted a hawkish stance to the concept of Amotekun yet without a plan to address the main reasons why the solution has become an uncomfortable reality. Yet one has to appreciate the government’s dilemma in the context of constitutionality. Additionally, there is a real fear factor in allowing Amotekun become a viable model because it takes away from the centre, by suggesting the centre is incapable of securing the people while the unresolved issue of “state police” looms large; oh,there is the small matter of the social contract between a government and its people!Nevertheless, in the realm of necessity,the reality remains that something positive has finally happened and one cannot blame the initiators of Amotekun for being proactive!
