Career / Life Spring by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 6:13am On Aug 14, 2019
*LIFE SPRING*


When the word Life is pronounced, thousands of thoughts runs on my mind. There are lots of definitions of *LIFE*, but none of us seems to know the real meaning of life because Almighty God use it to be superior over human beings.

No matter how vast the knowledge of white men is about the genesis of the universe, it can't predict what tomorrow will bring. Also, alot of things happens in this life. That's why I love the song that one musician sang, title: soapy (Inside life).


I sat down and I thought deeply about this life and I asked myself that *'WHY?'.*
Why are some people rich and some are poor? Why some people are attending expensive schools and driven to school in vehicles and some are attending cheaper schools, still trekking to school? Why are some people enjoying and some people are suffering?

Then it cross my mind that Bible says _I'm God, and I will have mercy upon who I will have mercy upon,_ and in the book of Genesis, Bible says _God created life both good and bad_.


We are not equal in this life; even from inception, that's why a great philosopher Alfred Smith says that _"Life is a class society"_.

The rich associate with the rich and the poor associate with the poor as well. That's why I always feel bad whenever I remember the song that my teacher taught me in my tender age which says;

_"Some have food but they can't eat and some can eat but they have no food"_
Hmmm.. truly, _life is like a talking drum._


God created the rich and also created the poor. It's not that poor people offend God or God hate them but because He said, "He, God; is not mischievous king."

Either you are rich or poor, just learn how to thank God, for some people are rich but they are not healthy and some people are healthy but they are poor, so don't blame God. Because that's the way He designed things and He is Mighty.


Nonetheless, if you're in a position that you don't like, God is the best for you to complain to, instead of you blaming God, just be thanking Him for God is a merciful God and in every situation you see yourself, be a grateful soul and keep saying, _ALLIHAMDULILAHI!_

Nairaland / General / _YAHOO YAHOO By BANKZ Okunrin Metta ✍ by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 2:27am On Aug 06, 2019
_YAHOO YAHOO �‍�_


There's reason in every action and is either is a negative or positive result. Base on my research, 70% of Nigeria youths are involved in Frauds (Yahoo) even the research revealed that not only guys are doing it, some ladies are doing it even the married man, so not only the youths involved in this victim.


Yahoo is a crime or not??
Yes, is a crime.
No, is not a crime.
This is answer that many of us we say, some people will say yahoo is a crime, likewise some will say is not a crime.
Yahoo is have been exist some years ago, that's time is known as 419 (Cyber crime). Then yahoo have not be casted like this that anybody can just suddenly determine that I want to start doing yahoo.


Yahoo is like a talking drum, the aspect that shows to you is what you will use to judge maybe is a crime or not.
Let's say fact, yahoo is a crime, because due to God's commandment, is a sin even God disallow it. Both the holy books disallow it as well (Bible, Quran). And Bible says no sinner will go unpunished. But who wants to help in this life now? Who want his/her friend to make it? Who want to see others to make it before him/her? No one!
Everybody is doing his own thing by himself, nobody wanna help any fucking body, so tell me how crime will not be occur.


Most people are doing fraud (yahoo) not their wish but they don't have nothing to do for living i.e A graduate that's don't have a job since many years he has graduated and his friends that just have secondary school certificate is making fucking money through this fraud (yahoo), so tell me why he won't join them, just for him to get the money and be good in a society. Like one hip-hop musician who says "If you know the meaning of slavery. you will know that yahoo isn't a crime". That's his own opinion to it and if another person say his own, it might be different to what he quoted.
Most of youths have make it through fraud (yahoo), that they are now on their own, even some youths is doing it to send himself to school, so can you tell such person not to do yahoo? No! Even if you preach to him, he won't answer you cus he will ask you that if he stop it, what's did you want him to be eating cus there's no job in the country. If you notice very well, this yahoo have stopped some bad acts in Nigeria like robbery, picking pocket, buglary theft etc the rate of robbery has reduced due to yahoo. Not that am supporting it but just to fish out the advantage in it and is also bad to make others people cry because of your own happiness but if we want to go deeper in this fraud (yahoo).


All these white people are also a fraudster in their own too because in the colonial era, most of us can something about what this people did but base on Bible which says "Don't pay evil by evil". So I stop here.


Finally, my brother and sister, let's just keep our hope on God, cus everybody is a sinner, nobody's saint in this life. A white man called Edward Mark says "Sinner judge Sinner because they sin differently". So Only God can judge everyone of us, even there are some crime that's very terrible than fraud (yahoo) but we don't look to that crime atall, we just overlooked it.
Everyone of us has one or two persons that are doing yahoo, so don't just judge anyone. If you know that isn't a crime join them and if you know that is a crime then be far away from it but don't criticize anyone, when time comes, God will judge everyone of us due to our work. So, let's just pray for Grace, even what our leaders are doing sef is the father of fraud (yahoo) lol. And let's pray to God to bring back our country to be a great country because this fraud (yahoo) came in through unemployment, corruption, inefficient economy etc so if everything be in other, there won't be fraud everywhere, everyone will have legit job in hand that can serve as source of income.
*Thank you very much.*
*God bless Nigeria.*

Politics / Youth Inclusiveness In Governance by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 1:19am On Jul 31, 2019
YOUTH INCLUSIVENESS IN GOVERNANCE
Similarly, on youths' inclusiveness in government, it is a necessity that we as a nation catch up with the dynamics of the 21st century. There is no gain saying that global rise in knowledge, technology and social awareness has boosted the capacity of our youths in country.
However, their ability to harness these assets effectively to drive national transformation would depend on the leadership opportunities available to them. I still do not understand why youths were left out of the recent ministerial nominees list. While I know that being a “youth” in itself is not a qualification for leadership, it is in this context related to credible and competent young Nigerians within the required age. Is it not painful to see how young Nigerians excel outside Nigeria when they could have impacted same course into the Nigerian system if given the opportunity?

Drawing from an independent research by the British Council, by 2030; “Youths, not oil, will be Nigeria’s greatest asset”. It is so sad to realize that, the youth density is a minority in the present political demography in Nigeria while the aged generation lead as the majority.

The Nigerian youth have since our nation’s return to democratic rule in 1999 been kept at the fringes of leadership. Youths are merely seen as the representation of tomorrow’s leadership rather than the distinct social category of people who are educated, competent and prepared for the task of today’s leadership.

It is common knowledge that, democracy signifies the representation of people because it is also a game of numbers. Representation in a democracy is expected to mirror the demographic composition of all of its population.
It is needful to say that, not only are youths the demographic majority in Nigeria but also the distinct social stratum and as such, ought to be given rightful representation in the leadership of this nation just as gender has attained recognition as a distinct social category.

Most of the developed climes in the world today rely on the dynamic innovations occasioned by their youth populace especially in technology, governance and the military. It is upon the realization and actualization of this fact that we as a nation can boast of politics of ideas and pragmatism without putting old wine in new bottles.

God bless Nigeria.

Politics / Press Statement - The Senate Failed Nigerians by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 1:09am On Jul 31, 2019
PRESS STATEMENT - THE SENATE FAILED NIGERIANS
BY BARR. PELUMI OLAJENGBESI


The Nigerian Senate has just announced the completion of the screening and confirmation of the Ministers Nominees of President Muhammadu Buhari, and Nigerians are made to wonder if the Senate is aware of its onus as an important body vested with constitutional powers to carry out this crucial assignment.
The entire screening process was a demonstration of disloyalty to the Nigerian People, promotion of nepotism in state affairs and a show of party loyalty as against the need to sieve off ministerial nominees who lack the requisite aptitude and are with questionable antecedents. Meanwhile, it is trite that one of the administrative functions of the legislature is to constantly put a check on the activities of the executive in fostering an ideal government devoid of administrative excesses, and it is the intention of the visionaries of the constitution that this process will commence from the appointment of credible ministers.
As provided by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, particularly Section 147(2) of the 1999 Constitution, it is the business of the legislative house to confirm the appointment of Ministerial nominees sent by the President. It is a common knowledge anywhere in the world that, part of the duties of the National Assembly, particularly the Senate, is the screening of ministerial nominees sent by the President to fill spaces in his cabinet.

Unfortunately, the screening exercise was disdainfully reduced to ‘take a bow and go’. Does it not sadden the heart that not less than half of the 43 were generously told to take a bow and go? Meanwhile, the only time the lawmakers deemed it fit to actually screen a nominee, took the posture of a grievance against the nominee or his sponsor while glossing over other key issues. As it is, the direct implication of this malady goes down to the citizenry whose hopes have again been dashed, losing interest in whatever the outcome of the governmental process is. The Senate has therefore failed the Nigerian people in such a very early moment if this administration.

Nigerians were expecting that the Senate would painstakingly carry out this important process by testing the all-round capacity of the nominees to take up the challenge of contributing to the development of the country. It is heartbreaking to see some of the nominees openly begging the Senate to allow them take a bow and go, instead of unveiling their plans when confirmed as ministers.

All of this put together aggravates the fear of the 9th National Assembly becoming a rubber stamp assembly as earlier posited by some thinkers. While it is understandable that there is a rule of the Senate that allows former legislators or members of the Senate to take a bow and go, I hold strongly that such rule mitigates the essence of the Ministerial Screenings.

As far as I am concerned this rule is inconsistent with the provision of the Constitution which provides for a process of Senate "Confirmation".
Flowing from the above, it is my candid recommendation that the Senate set up a parameter or criteria for confirmation and rejection of presidential nominees in the future, so that Nigerians will see transparency and patriotism in its screening of presidential nominees rather than the ‘take a bow’ methodology adopted by the senate. The senate should know that the institution is responsible to Nigerians and be wary of actions that may cost them their legitimacy.

Religion / My Take On Pastor Fatoyinbo Rape Allegation by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 10:44pm On Jun 28, 2019
MY TAKE ON PASTOR FATOYINBO RAPE ALLEGATION

Pelumi Olajengbesi Esq.

I have repeatedly watched the interview video of Timi Dakolo's wife, Busola Dakolo, which unveils the issue of her alleged rape by Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA. I found it disturbing, sodomic and intolerable.
Understandably, I have been troubled since the story broke and that prompts this written reaction. I am all the more pained owing to the fact that the accused, Pastor Biodun Fatoyimbo is a man I am emotionally connected to, and for whom I have a lot of respect, particularly enjoying his teachings.

Legally speaking, no matter the cathartic strength of Busola Dakolo ‘s story it is not in itself sufficient proof of guilt nor a conviction of the pastor. It does, however, seriously calls his person and character into doubt- and it is clearly a matter that mandates a robust public response from him.

I became a passionate follower of Fatoyinbo as a law undergraduate in the University of Abuja around 2010. I attended his services as often as twice a week at ThisDay Dome, the former location of the church. I am naturally not one easily excitable about men of God or church programs but I fortuitously went along to the church for the first time because some female friends of mine had begged me to drop them off. I found myself enjoying the service that very first encounter, and formed the habit of attending his services all by myself.

It is despairing in no small way, thus, to have to repeatedly confront the issue of his alleged infidelity and even worst, rape. It is truly a serious matter that calls for a neutral arbiter and a full hearing on his innocence or lack of same.

It is a vital duty to show responsibility for people under one’s care to avoid any behavior or omissions that could reasonably be foreseen to cause harm to others. This duty of care and responsibility is unreservedly extended to Pst. Biodun Fatoyinbo which makes it imperative that full investigations be allowed to run its cause to determine his innocence or culpability.

I have contacted numbers of civil society groups to please take interest and help engage this issues critically so that we may liberate our society from such bondage.

I do extend my commendations to Mrs. Busola Dakolo for speaking out, and for her sake hope that her claims are provable for it is this that truly matters in our judicial process and not the sentiments evoked by her narration.

Let justice prevail.

Thank you.

*One day ☹️*

According to Yoruba people's adage, which says *"Everyday is for the thief but One day is for the owner"☹*
Likewise, I want to ask you a question that are you remember *One day* �‍♀ that you will sleep and you won't have a chance to wake up again? ☹. Though, life is sweet but some people have take this life so hard, even they have forgotten that *One day* is coming that they won't have a chance to speak, walk, eat, dance, having sex, lavish money, drink, command etc �
What's a pity ☹, life is just like a market for everyone of us, no matter how you sell and buy in market, you will surely go back home �. I remember my quote which says *"The day we gonna die is far better than the day we are born to this World �"* because people was rejoicing and congratulating each other the day me and you was born into this world � and this same people will be sad, mourn, sober etc when we leave this world � You see that *Life is too short for everyone of us ☹️* So, let's live a good and meaningful role life for others who is coming after us �.
Be careful Mr rich man, life is slippery ☹️ hope you remember *MKO Abiola �‍♀ all the money, wealth, cars, houses, companies he has, he left everything without pick one ☹️* See, Life is Vanity, even Bible says *"Vanity Upon Vanity, All is Vanity"�‍♀* Nobody can stop death whenever times up. We are all in a bus going to different destination, so everybody go get down whenever we get to our bus stop �. So why are we in haste? Why are we doing evil up and down? Why are we making someone to cry for us to laugh? Why are we doing as if we won't die again? �‍♀
My brothers and sisters, always remember that *One day* all will be end ❌ everything about you will now be a story for upcoming generation ☹️ You will now be alone in grave � earthworms and other insects will now use your body (your precious body that you don't want anybody to touch, even if someone mistakenly touch you, you will fight and abuse the person ☹️, the body you use to do yanga/shakara infront of guys/girls when you are in life will now be a fresh food/meal for insects to eat with peaceful mind � Insects will now eat you till you become a skeleton ☹️�.
Live a life that people will say a good things about you when you leave this world not to be sending curses unto you in the grave ☹.
Finally, always have it in mind that no matter how you run helter skelter in this world � *One day* you will drop everything and you will go and give your creator account/feedback on how you use your life ☹
Please �, do good and let's people say good things about you because *What goes around, comes around �*

Press Statement.

Re: Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila's World Press Conference: Spitting In the Face of Nigerians.

On Wednesday, June 5th, 2019, Nigerians were treated to a classic case of political masturbation when the touted candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Femi Gbajabiamila, chose to spit in our faces rather than respond to the weighty issue of fraud levied against him.

For several weeks now, Gbajabiamila has been assailed with mounting cases of a prior conviction, dishonesty, identity theft, different birth dates, and most recently, perjury.

But, perhaps, in tandem with it's public image of fighting corruption with insecticides when it concerns an opposition party member, and deodorant when the offender belongs to the APC (apologies to Senator Shehu Sani), virtually all the top echelon of the party have continued to look the other way.

Even Gbajabiamila adopted the same whimsical attitude, until a combination of civil society, opposition political parties and citizen’s outcry compelled him to promise a "World Press Conference" during which he would tackle the issues.

It was, therefore, with utmost shock that come D-day, instead of having Gbajabiamila mount the rostrum, a motley crowd of APC lawmakers gathered at the elitist Transcorp Hilton, to instead trifle with the issues.

For starters, what is at stake here is not a search for an APC speaker, but one for the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This presupposes, therefore, that the consequences of a wrong selection will hurt and haunt not only lawmakers but Nigeria, and Nigerians.

The hallowed institution of the House of Representatives is bigger than any one individual's interest, and as such issues concerning it cannot be treated in an offish manner.

Indeed, what is at stake here is the personal integrity questions hovering over an individual, and instead of brutally confronting same, he elects to send his campaign head to attempt to pull wools over the eyes of Nigerians.

Besides being ethically challenged himself, as the discredited former chairman of the House of Representatives committee on Appropriation at the center of the budget padding saga, as well as a frequent guest of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Hon. Abdulmumuni Jibrin does not have the nexus to speak on the issues.
Was he speaking as Gbajabiamila's attorney, an accomplice, or merely as a colleague and friend?

Under whatever guise he may have been deployed, Jibrin cannot in good conscience deny infractions he was not privy to at the time they were committed.

Notably, Hon.Gbajabiamila is alive and well, yet since the entire saga began, he has refused to talk to the issues. Pray, are we gunning for a Speaker who cannot speak on issues concerning his personal integrity? How then can he be expected to truly speak on our behalf as a people.

In fact, because his proxy lacks proper understanding of what is at stake, critical issues bothering on perjury, dishonesty, professional misconduct and conviction by the Supreme Court of Georgia were derisively dismissed by simply referring Nigerians to a book if they are in need of answers. The same self indicting book that illustrated how Hon. Gbajabiamila and his friends tried "unsuccessfully" to raise funds for his campaigns back in 2003, only to come by a client's $25,000 a week after, converted same to his use, closed his office and fled to Nigeria.

Perhaps, to show how unprepared they were, after reading from a self-adulating text, Hon. Jibrin and his troupe of cheer leaders promptly brought the session to an end, chorusing, "no questions please, no questions please."

By taking this stance, the Gbajabiamila group has not only left the nagging issues unanswered; they, in fact, only succeeded in further casting a huge question mark on the integrity of the fellow they want to foist as the No.4 citizen of Nigeria.

As a coalition of public spirited officers in the temple of justice, we insist that nobody should be allowed to put his personal integrity at stake, least of all the image of Nigeria and Nigerians for a man who has falsified his age, his name and adopted the social security number of a dead American, in addition to other weighty allegations.

We make bold to state that it is crystal clear that Femi Gbajabiamila lacks the moral mettle and sincerity to lead the House of Representatives as its Speaker as the context of the press conference failed to address the substantive issue against him and, rather than express remorse, countered with baseless threats against the Nigerian people.

COPA states categorically that it is in possession of all documents and evidences that establishes a clear case of fraudulent dishonesty and abuse of trust against Femi Gbajabiamila. The facts against Gbajiamila are, in fact, readily available to the public as they were established in a Court of Record with same being accessible to the public, and are attached herein for the avoidance of doubt.

We have established correspondence with the Supreme Court of Georgia and we have documents of Disciplinary Case No. S06Y0829 and the family of the victim of Gbajiamila’s fraud, Hadyatou Barry and also Vesta with P. O. Box 23410 Nashville TN, 31202, the insurance company that paid the claim misappropriated by Femi Gbajabiamila.

The entire defense raised in Femi Gbajabiamila’s behalf in said Press Statement relied on a book whose thorough, unbiased reading ironically actually proves his guilt as the book acknowledges ALL the material facts establishing his guilt in fraudulently appropriating to himself money meant for the victim of a car accident. No amount of half-truths and misdirection can acquit him of guilt thence.

COPA restates its position that a Femi Gbajabiamila-led House of Representatives would be a moral burden on Nigeria and ridicule our legislative house before the international community. There is no doubt, with available facts and record, that the case of perjury against Gbajiamila would succeed except the parties withdraw the suit.

A Nigerian Ambassador Tijjani Bande just got elected as the President of the 74th United Nations General assembly, a great accomplishment for President Buhari with regard to repositioning the image of Nigeria and restoring corresponding dignity and respect for our country, her citizens hone and abroad and our passport.

Should we now dent this new achievement by endorsing a man who has been evidently convicted by Georgia State Supreme Court for acting dishonestly by appropriating $25,000 belonging to his client for Speaker of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

We, therefore, call on President Mohammadu Buhari to live up to his reckoning as an anti corruption czar, by causing the nation's security agencies to undertake an in-depth investigations into the Hon.Femi Gbajabiamila saga, so as to prevent the country from willfully embracing a reputation crisis even before the 9th National Assembly takes off.

For us, we shall keep our eyes on the ball, until such a time when the will of the people, rather than the craving of a political godfather, is done.

We invite the mass media to join in this crusade, if for nothing else, in the national interest.

Politics / A Lot Of Government Security Agencies Get Carried Away By The Power Of Their Off by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 11:27am On Jun 06, 2019
A lot of government security agencies get carried away by the power of their office, hence subject a lot of Nigerians to reckless abuse of Human Rights.

A young, hard-working and law abiding Nigerian citizen who carries on the business of Professional Photography, Videography, Musical Video Production, Editing and all other professional endeavours incidental thereto, Saudi Nasiru Ali aka Kozographa, was arrested by the EFCC recently and subjected to an unbelievable scale of human rights abuse.

The EFCC later discovered that said guy is innocent yet felt no remorse. The EFCC rather bid him farewell and said sardonically that "God saved you" after detaining him for days and after holding him out to the public as an internet fraudster.

As human rights lawyers, and in line with our firm's practice policy, we have resolved to represent the victim on a pro bono basis to secure remedy.

I have personally never imagined that such level of crudity and torture can be carried out by the EFCC. He has demanded for a reasonable 100m damages from EFCC and it is our hope that the EFCC will chat the course of honour.

We must make it abundantly clear that the EFCC is a construct of the law that cannot exist outside the legal purview of its establishing legislation.

The EFCC is a mere and ordinary governmental agency that is NOT above the law, hence it is ultra vires for it to take the form of a rogue agency devoid of legality and given to arbitral use of its powers.

We must stop security rascality in Nigeria.

FEMI GBAJABIAMILA'S EMERGENCE AS SPEAKER WILL BE A HUGE MORAL BURDEN ON NIGERIA

Press Statement By The Coalition of PublicInterests Lawyers and Advocates, COPA.

3rd. June, 2019.

PREAMBLE.

The impending Speaker-ship election in the House of Representatives continues to generate discourse while throwing up characters for election into said position which invites public scrutiny and input.

The Coalition of Public Interest Lawyers & Advocates (COPA) have in the preceding weeks been at the vanguard of calls for a sound leader bereft of character flaws and ineptitude that can bring the Green Chamber to disrepute nationally and internationally.

Our continuous thorough interrogation of the circumstances and dynamism of Nigeria makes it pertinent that the House of Representatives, being the single largest legislative chamber in the country and princely positioned to set the tone for further offices within government circles, should be guided by the highest possible standards in their choice of a leader.

BODY.

COPA, having interacted with the public severally and conducted an impartial inquest into the antecedents of all who have indicated interest for the position of Speaker-ship of the House of Representatives have summed up its findings expressed in a singular concern which is that with the leanings in the Green Chamber, the touted candidacy of one Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila presents the most undesirable alternative.

We have concluded that A Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila leadership of the House of Representatives (HOR) would be a severe moral burden on the country. This is a bare statement of truth that takes into cognizance his precedence on the Green Chamber as a lackey and in his prior private life as a man who has accumulated questionable wealth while bearing the baggage of being morally fraudulent and dishonest.

It is no longer news that his years of practice as a lawyer in Georgia, United States of America ended with a disbarment and an indictment for dishonorably defrauding his client thus breaking the fiduciary trust innate in such interactions.

Further findings have had him placed as the man with multiple identities in the United States of America, strongly fingered as being behind several identity theft while living off the evil gains of his shrewd life.

There isn’t the tiniest shred of honor in a man who has lived his life on the other side of the law leading others in a legislative assignment in the House of Representatives. His mere membership of the House is an indictment of our political process and choices and is cause for great regret and shame.

The uprightness of a political leader is non-negotiable. The position of a Speaker for the HOR is itself such a sensitive one that demands the most stringent scrutiny, and for which the standard may not be sacrificed on the alter of mediocrity, patronage nor godfatherism.

Is it truly the case that Hon. Femi Gbajiamila is the best the House of Representatives has to offer? Or is his ascendancy to the Green Chamber and temerity to vie for the seat of Speaker in the HOR incurable symptoms of our political slumber, unethical process and political patronage taking precedence over merit and upright-ness?

Nigerians must not relent in holding its leaders up to the best possible standards. To lower our value system to accommodate lesser men of disrepute is to set the nation up to fail and embarrass itself globally. We have suffered enough from bad leadership brought on by elective processes skewered to favor hollow men against those with the adroitness for leadership.

CONCLUSION.

COPA will continue to be the conscience of the nation and the voice of millions of Nigerians imploring the members of the newly constituted 9th House of Representatives assembly to show themselves true and responsive to the mandate of the Nigerian people and act right by their oath of office. It is instructive that this election will set the tone for what Nigerians are to expect going forward form the House or Representatives. This election may very well make or mar the 9th House of Representatives. Failing Nigerians is not an option.

Lowering the standards of leadership to accommodate a political lackey bereft of the tiniest claim to moral uprightness is selling the nation short on true leadership and also not an option. Nigerians will resist such attempts vehemently as they always have.

Thank you.

*NIGERIA'S IDENTITY AND MULTI-CULTURALISM CRISIS IN SEARCH OF DEEP HEALING*

_Pelumi Olajengbesi Esq._

Two days ago, we marked the commemoration of the outbreak of the Civil War in Nigeria between 1967 and 1970, a three year internecine war which evidenced the single greatest bloodshed and loss of life ever recorded in our national life. That it came less than a decade into the life of the newly independent Nigeria is a cause for sober reflections made all the more severe by the fractious differences that pit ethnic groups against each other in a battle for sovereignty and political control.

It takes a degree of courage and moral compass to call the civil war a needless war and genocides against the Igbos and the other minority tribes caught in-between. By genocide one is concerned, of course, not only by the deaths of Biafran soldiers who made the conscious choice to put their lives on the line to defend their newly found, even if contested, territory but also by the deaths of civilians especially women and children by mortars and starvation.

I am quite aware of how sensitive the issue of the Civil War is, and how sentiments and opinions vary and differ largely along ethnic lines. We may have come several years away from that blood-splatted pogrom but the issues which gave rise to the war remain real and amongst us.

Ethnic tension and religious bigotry. Twin evils continually bedeviling our nation and stoking the embers of intolerance, nepotism, distrust and disunity. As it was in the days of the Civil War, so it remains unto us today. By taking over the political reins from our British colonizers without clearly mapped out ideological and practical blueprints to fully integrate all ethnic groups and religions in the country, Nigeria was indeed a rudderless ship hearing to the precipice of war.

The forced amalgamation of the independent territories that now make up Nigeria with tribal sovereignty and way of life sacrificed on the alter of western edifices for political and economic ease, reasonably proves that Nigeria was, ab initio, a contraption doomed to implode if the ideological precepts for national integration were lacking or political will scarce at independence.

What should have been an emancipating early years of independence was underscored by primitive rush for wealth, ethnic rivalry for authority and severe regionalism that ripped the fabric of a potential true unitary government and leadership. The consequence has been that over the years, tribal considerations take precedence over merit while religious differences have raised an indignation against tolerance.

By 1965-’67, the Igbos found themselves questioning their place in a country that habitually dumped down on their industry, while minority tribes in the north were overwhelmed by the overriding politics of the Hausa-Fulani hegemony. The Yorubas appeared balanced on an epoch that witnessed great internal stimulation in its western hold and were disinterested, it would seem, in facing headlong other issues not directly deriving from its region.

Regional politics indeed held sway at the center and it is with little surprise that one greeted the first and second coups that soon developed with tribal undertone. It was glaring then as it is now that the unaddressed residues of angst from tribal distrust and disunity would plunge this nation into a whirlpool of death and destruction. And indeed it did.

Our failure to pick up lessons from that era has meant reliving the same tribal discontent and accusations and counter-accusations amongst tribes alleging the attempt by one or the other to subjugate others through political and economic control. It is not history that repeats itself but men who repeat their mistakes from the annals of history.

The underlying cause of the Civil War of yesteryears continues to haunt us in our national and private lives, and within the last four years have been more pronounced than ever before. Allegations have been rife, once again, of one tribe seeking to force their will on the other and tribal sentiments have been so whipped up; our national identity is in shreds.

Whether or not the claims that one tribe is on a mission to dominate the others is real, the fear is palpable, the apprehension can be felt across the country and the tension steaming just beneath the surface threatening to upturn our lingering semblance to civility as a democratic nation. The pertinent question is: what is the government of today doing to assuage this issue? What policies or actions have been put firmly in place to show that this concerns are unfounded or where founded, that they will be dealt with appropriately and immediately without delay?

The hubris of the President Buhari-led national government would be its inability to listen to independent counsel and accept that it simply cannot know it all. Incidental to this is its apparent aloofness to the fears and challenges of the people it leads while bringing on nepotic appointments as its State policy.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s outcry of a Fulani agenda to take over the country is a case where the cliché 'not to throw away a baby with the bath water' comes into application. Besides, President Buhari himself once described Obasanjo as a man who is not afraid to speak truth to power thus lending some form of credence to his call for the 're-nationalization' of Nigeria. While it is unwise to take the said outcry simply at its face value, it does should bear in mind that a man of his standing would lend a voice to, thus becoming the rallying point of, the building fear that the scales of national equality is being tipped in favour of one tribe.

Nigeria’s Multi-Culturalism has been, sadly, more a burden than a blessing principally because of the lack of political will to cultivate the ‘volkgeist' pride in one Nigeria where our identity is our 'Country First' above anything else. The failure of successive administrations of Nigerian Government to advise itsself on the mistakes of the past and set itself on a path to quell ethnic tension is cause for great worry.

As a country, we’ve had a sizable share of true patriots but are in dire need of more. True patriots are detribalized and do not share the nation along 5 and 95% ratio. Nigerians are people not statistics, and Nigeria is the common inheritance of all Nigerians at a per equal basis.

My hope is that we someday find ourselves in the hands of a leadership that is truly alive to the challenges of nation building and its sustenance. I also implore all Nigerians, against the backdrop of our past experiences, to forgive, forget, heal and let go. Nigeria needs deep healing and it begins with you and I.

Opeyemisamuel06:
LET'S BE WATCHFUL OF FALSE LIPS

By. Pelumi Olajengbesi Esq.

Just this morning it occurred to me to put up a book to espouse my commentaries on politics with a narration I would love to inspire our precious generation with, but no, not in a hurry. I won’t just yet.

I also noticed I have authored 79 political articles since I began my political voyage which I also hope to compile after a professional censorship to be christened "My Walk Across the Sahara Desert". Before that, I pledge to keep a dairy with us to interrogate issues as they occur within and beyond politics.

Politics. Nigeria. Two words that produce sparks when mixed and sap energy when indulged in. Nigerian politics is a planet on its own, a universe complete with its own rules of engagement, driven by the most contrived machinations and decidedly merciless on the innocent. It could be terrible and nasty yet interesting and intriguing when one has the heart for its surprises at every turn. I got that.

As I officially resumed back to work this morning from my long political adventure, my thoughts trailed home to the then battlefield of a drawn out political contest I was involved. I realized with a rush of emotions that I missed it all. I missed the atmosphere and the effervescent spirit our people.

I flashed back at those moments spent making the rounds across localities searching in the deepest heart of the people and lingering over several chats, drinks and food shared in the embracing towns visited. Then I remembered the hailing - rapturous shouts of, “ITURA ! ITURA !! ITURA !!!” which rent the air as crowds would converge on our campaign trails charged by the belief in what we represented.

I look back on the journey so far with gratitude, never regret. Whenever I reflect on where and how we started to where we are today, I am reminded that I found mercy before God and men. I’ve spent my life counting my blessings, big and little, and politics has given me even more reasons to be grateful as the selflessness of our supporters, friends, leaders - within and outside my party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has shown.

I am happy as one who knows a battle is lost but a war is almost won. I believe leadership and power at all time is predetermined by God, we as humans have the duty to engineer it to reality. But then I digress.

Some human beings in the class of politicians can be unbelievably wicked and utterly terrible. They show no mercy, go any length to crush perceived enemies and have no compunction with morality to do the right thing. And I wonder, why?

Sometimes, people to whom we’ve wittingly, or hoodwinked, entrusted with friendship and loyalty will literally kill someone if they must or just by a rash of whim without hesitation. You can know no rest when a vengeful or spiteful politician means to do you in for good. Really!

I contested an election, and though I did not win, that was not enough, as my ‘matter' is carried on a daily basis on false lips, and I wonder why? Why do they seek to pit me against the people who selflessly made sacrifices for me? People who worked and voted for me without a penny? Why? How can anyone with a sane mind accuse me of betraying my party? How can someone accuse me of trading my election for political appointments in Abuja? Now, this is really a deep bend, sickening and appalling!

That anyone would claim I sold out on my own election is sad. How? Was I voting at all polling units in the local government? Why are people wicked in thoughts and speech? If there was any case of betrayal in the last election, I am the victim. And now that I let myself think back on it I can’t help but sigh ruefully and shake my head.

Nevertheless, my election was God’s will. If the whole world betrayed me yet God wanted me at the time of the election, he would have shown his hand. Clearly! I am therefore happy with myself and everyone. That is how large my faith is in the divine providence of God, if not God would I ever have been positioned to contest the election?! I think not. We put in our best but it is called a political game for a reason, some played it better now and God wanted it so.

It is also unfair for some persons to raise suspicion that I moved on too quickly and that I was even celebrating after the election. How did we get this low? Was I suppose to die? Should I not thank God in defeat as in victory?

This is how you know I really did not lose a thing! I have my people’s love and my high spirit remains high! Misery has no business with a man on a divine mission. This is my case.

I am by nature a courageous and straight-forward person and I live my life with the understanding that life is transient. Those spreading the rumor that I am in an unholy relationship with APC are only wasting their time. Those beating their chest that they will see my end are mere jesters. My life is not solely built around politics. Politics for me has always been about development and service. I have a career, one which equips and opportune me to serve humanity and I have with me the grace of God.

I do not play politics with deceit. I am not a perfect person but I cannot be described as an opportunist. I don't just take opportunities that are priceless, I love to make sacrifices. I love to have achievements not by short cuts but by meaningful efforts. These are the things that defines me.

Let it also be on record that I do not and cannot hold anybody responsible for my elections. I believe God ordains leaders. Yes, some people disappointed me but I had my mistakes, but above all God is supreme. If I cannot compromise against other people even with juicy offers, I couldn't have compromised against myself.

Last last, we will all be alright.

Nairaland / General / A Tribute To Pa. Fredrick Fasehun by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 6:26pm On Dec 02, 2018
Adieu Baba, Dr. Frederick Fasehun

I suppose emotional pain hurts even more than physical ones, but nothing could have prepared me for the seething sense of sorrow and the soul-wrenching agony that gutted me when I received news of the passing on of Dr. Frederick Fasehun, my father and all.

Anyone with half a knowledge of my life story would no doubt be familiar with his sterling role as a mentor and instructor in heralding me into the man I am today. To describe Dr. Frederick Fasehun simply as a mentor and an instructor in itself is an understatement of severe proportion for he was so much more.

In those very difficult moments, I always had his audience and help. He stood as a pillar of support through my trying times and continued to be a source of inspiration till his death. The reminders of his great life are preserved in his life story, his act of charity and his endearment to democratic ethos as a pathway to development in our country. Indeed, there is a large void left behind by his exit from this life.

While I mourn his sad and regrettable demise, I pray for God’s fortitude to process this loss with the understanding that for a man who has paid his dues to humanity that nothing but rest eternal and a crown for his innumerable efforts on earth await him in world beyond.

May his soul be received by Heaven’s host.
Amen.

Adieu, Sir.
You lived and fought the good fight.
Nairaland / General / Welcome To The BAR 'lawyers' by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 12:43am On Nov 29, 2018
Welcome to the BAR 'Lawyers'

Pelumi Olajengbesi Esq.

A journey of a thousand miles, they say, begins with a step. This words hold true in the life of lawyers. The arduous process of studying for a law degree and putting up with the rigors of Law School would try anyone and has sadly seen some students get dropped. It is a thoroughly selective process that seeks to prepare a refined few for the Bar and Bench.

This week as we celebrate new entrants to the Bar, I want to extend my congratulations to everyone who have successfully passed the bar finals. Welcome to the folds of a truly prestigious profession. Your dedication and effort, coupled with each choices made in your lifetime has led to this point. It is a moment to thoroughly enjoy and bask in for it sets the tone for a future that can be fulfilling.

I am profoundly proud of our friends ( now colleagues at the Bar ) who are living their dreams and are at the defining moment of what I hope would be a prosperous time in the service of humanity. For this, after all, is what being a lawyer entails - service through diligence, honesty and trust; for to apply one’s self to the course of justice is no mean dedication.

I would implore you not to lose yourselves in the moment for in the next few weeks and months you will be inundated with the harsh reality that your journey has only just begun. The race is not for the swift but for the smart. Work hard less, work smart more. Be diligent and attentive for learning moments in your career.

You may find no roses in the field of employment in the legal profession. The competition is stiff, the work hours and exigencies will test your resolve but you must never waver in the quality of your service delivery. Some of you may not get employed as fast you’d prefer, those who do may thumb their noses up at the stipends received as salary. Yes, stipends.

Do not be dismayed by a salary of N40,000 or less. It is the harsh reality. Juxtaposed with the cost of gaining your degree and legal license, one may be forgiven to feel offended by such a remuneration. Yet you must persevere. Create a work ethic that sharpens your practice, absolve knowledge and constantly improve in your practice. It is when fortunes look most dire that you must not quit. The big-time lawyers you see and admire today once trudged through pecuniary pays to reach great heights. Be humble, be patient.

In all, never lose sight of your responsibility to justice; a fragile but resilient cause that you must take up especially on the behalf of those disadvantaged by status, funds or age.

By all means, make merry now, you’ve earned the respite from impossible reading hours, voluminous books and fiery lecturers. Congrats ! There are even bigger books ahead, ridiculous work hours and, sometimes, annoying clients. Do not lose heart, stay focused. It gets easier eventually.

Again, please receive my warmest regards and expression of happiness for the realization of your dreams today. I hope your careers take the right turn.

God Bless.

Nairaland / General / Our Trajectory Across Ijesa North .... Pelumi Olajengbesi Esq by Opeyemisamuel06(m): 1:33pm On Oct 02, 2018
Our Trajectory Across Ijesa North
Pelumi Olajengbesi Esq.


Fellow Compatriots, opinion and political leaders of thoughts across Ijesa North, our Royal Fathers, comrades and the general public, many months ago I indicated my interest to serve our good people in Oriade/ Obokun Federal Constituency, as a diligent citizen and a passionate lawmaker, that interest has now become the ambition of many across the world, some whom I have seen and some I possibly would not know.
This ambition was born out of the desire to launch alternative leadership ideas in representing our people and ensuring the socio-economic development of Ijesa North. It is our believe that a transgenerational shift in leadership should be our goals presently, particularly in areas that involve law making. That we need to do more in improving the well being of our people is to stress an obvious point.
We relentlessly pursued a youth-inspired agenda that sought to stir political belief and participation in our youths, galvanized purposeful thinking amongst us and fed a narrative that was progressive and accommodating of the incidence of youths in pivotal leadership position.
I am deeply grateful to God and men. I am grateful to all of you for your tireless support through out this difficult times. It is a huge honor for me to have you all with me on this journey. Certainly, we have invested precious time, resources and, perhaps for some, good-will. I can see that this is now telling on who we have become today, but we have not lost all, we have sucessfully reactivated the consciousness of our people and sent a signal to them about the coming prosperity. We must bring this home to the people once again.
That we got the world listening to us was simply the visible manifestation of an idea whose time has come. We have built a great team and fellowship, making history and creating memories across the 22 wards in Oriade/Obokun Federal Constituency. We have taken our message to the young and old, men, women and children, toiling in farms, along roadsides, hawking and hustling, yet carrying within them the spirit of our people, our resilience and the embers that need rekindling for greatness. In all of this, I am encouraged by the quality of our people’s reaction to our aspiration.
The Peoples Democratic Party helped me more in re-presenting myself to our people. As a member, I have enjoyed the support and solidarity of our leaders but even more so, our youths within the party have been excellent. It has all been a learning moment for me especially coming up against a wall of disbelief and an intricate political system.
Gentlemen, we are at the most defining face of this long and tortuous journey difficult to tell, and even as I write, I have had reasons to battle opinions against logic, interest against principles. I have been presented with power and honor at a crucial time like this just to pick one and still struggle for a place.
The leadership of our party, the Peoples Democratic Party, is certainly impressed by the little efforts we have put up and would gladly have me represent the party in such a crucial election. However, the leadership of our party is of the opinion that there is the need to consolidate on the gains of the leadership of Hon. Wole Oke as a serving member of the House of Representatives by returning him come 2019, and this view, the party has consciously called my attention to.
This is for me, perhaps, the most difficult moment of our struggle. I have deliberately refused to put this into contemplation as our determination in pursing this vision ran without restraint, limitation or bounds. Coupled with the painful, selfless sacrifices of our comrades over time, this does appear to be an edgy crossroad. Yet, this is my party, our party, my political belief, the PDP.
Ordinarily, I would have loved to pursue this by going into the elections from anywhere, but I am constrained by the fact that if truly I belong to the Peoples Democratic Party, I should not allow my pursuit jeopardize our party’s collective interest. I have always believed that the Peoples Democratic Party offers a free platform for people with genuine ambition to realize their goals across the country. However, in the pursuit of such goals one must endeavor to protect the fabric of the party which has been nurtured over the years by others.
In the past one year, I have deliberately argued and pursued my political views openly against the stand point of Hon. Wole Oke who currently occupies the House of Representatives seat. I made known my political differences, intensify efforts to take the party ticket from him to represent our people. No doubt he has prevailed, though our differences remain. As a member of PDP, regardless of those differences, I can only support him in my own humble way to lead us through in consolidating his past efforts.
As a human navigating a turn dictated by necessity and not planned, I do feel slighted but not downcast. Our course has given us the opportunity to truly see our people through their own eyes and words and to live moments with them. My love for them has grown as has my respect and admiration of their efforts as a people. I can only just say thank you. Thank you all. Thank you everyone, thank you from the east and south, north and west of the world, thank you all for being and being there.
Our party, the Peoples Democratic Party, has unconditionally offered me the ticket of the House of Assembly of Oriade Constituency, perhaps, in recognition of the efforts of our great supporters. I see this in good faith. We must make no mistake about this, our desire is selfless service and nothing untowards. I am therefore grateful to the leadership of our party for counting me worthy of such a great opportunity for service, even though, this is off my schedule and my bargain with the people.
My recent political activities has attracted a lot of people to me who today see me as a leader of sort and I am duty bound not just to think about myself but also their interests. I have consulted widely and we have all resolved that we must all forge ahead as members of a united political family in the PDP, even though they still have to battle with people who now find it difficult to see them as members of the same family. I hope such pointless animosity can be sheathed for the sake of the party’s progress, for as big as our party is, there must always be rooms for political differences and desire to reconcile these differences when necessary.
My pact with our people remains, as I appeal to all and sundry who are disappointed in the turn of events to please share reasons with me. We fought a remarkable fight. I have put in all, all of me into this with great expectation but I am not God. I believe leadership is predetermined and authenticated by God.
Once again, I say a big thank you to all, for your time and effort. I hope to continually lean on your wisdom and support as partners in progress as we chart a new course to greatness in Ijesa North.
Thank you.
