Sowore a Boko Haram and a Shiite?

By Farooq A. Kperogi

The latest story from Premium Times is that the Buhari regime is investigating Omoyele Sowore over links to Boko Haram, Shiites and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)😂

Honchos of the Buhari regime are clearly a bunch of degenerate retards! There's no way to sugarcoat it. Shiites and Boko Haram are ideological polar opposites. Boko Haram terrorists self-identify as Sunnis who hate Shiites with a murderous passion.

How can Sowore, a secular humanist and cultural Christian, have any links with both Boko Haram and Shiites, groups that don't even see eye to eye? To advance what cause? And IPOB? Oh my God!

In any case, when the same Buhari regime captures Boko Haram terrorists, it doesn't kill or jail them; it "de-radicalizes" them and "re-integrates" them into the society by enrolling them into the Nigerian military!

A senior military commander even told the media recently that Boko Haram members can become "president" in spite of their mass slaughters of innocents. And a recent presidential press statement said Boko Haram members are merely "militants," not terrorists.

But they want to kill a man who didn't kill anyone, who merely called for a civil insurrection against a decaying, inept government that has failed the nation. This regime is the most unfunny joke that ever existed!

Abubakar Malami: The Druggy AGF and Minister of Justice

Everyone should carefully watch videos of Abubakar Malami, the inarticulate and ignorant Attorney General of the Federation. You'll notice that his eyes are ALWAYS bloodshot, his body almost always shakes uncontrollably, and his limbs invariably move involuntarily.

Those are telltale signs of a drug addict. He's always in a state of hyper-arousal dissociation, in his own druggy little world. That's the kind of person Buhari (or, more appropriately, Abba Kyari) has entrusted with the task of enforcing the laws of the nation.

Any surprise he can come openly and say he can't ask the DSS to release Sowore even when the courts have said he should? He doesn't know his job. He doesn't live in our world. He lives in a drugged and drunk alternate universe. Nigeria is in worse trouble than it realizes.

Ministership for Sale: Up to N2.5b Per Slot

I declined to comment on the ministerial list Buhari sent to the Senate for two reasons: I was deeply distraught by what I heard about the process that produced it and I wanted to confirm the info from trustworthy people who should know.

Four different, dependable, and independent sources who don’t know each other but who’re close to the corridors of power were eerily united in telling me that except for a few ministerial nominations (notably those of Adamu Adamu, Ali Isa Pantami, Mohammed Musa Bello, Raji Fashola whom Buhari himself personally penciled— and those that were conceded to Tinubu) every other post was literally auctioned off to the highest bidder.

One Jeddy Agba from Cross River State, a Diezani protégé who defected to APC to avoid EFCC scrutiny, was said to have given Abba Kyari up to N2.5 billion for his nomination. I was told that, at a point, the incredibly rapacious Abba Kyari, in fact, removed Musa Bello’s name from the list and sold the spot to someone else. Buhari somehow found out and recalled the list. Bello is the son of Buhari’s very close friend. That was what inspired his saying that he’d only appoint people he “personally” knew. Of course, as usual, he lied.

If people are required to pay hundreds of millions of naira as a precondition to be appointed ministers, it means they’re being invited to a corruption bazaar. They’ll have to raid and pillage the national treasury to recoup their “investment.” My sources said Buhari knows that Abba Kyari and his boss, Mamman Daura, auctioned off ministerial slots to the highest bidders, and he is at peace with it. This didn’t surprise me because Buhari is himself an unmitigated but carefully managed fraud.

Nevertheless, Nigeria had never descended to this low watermark of shamelessly undisguised fraud. One of my sources said, “The rottenness is unprecedented and no society or country can survive this level of fraud, crime, and sleaze.” This confirms what I’ve always said: that Nigeria can’t survive a Buhari second term. There’s no way it can.

Apart from intractable insecurity and mass deaths, Buhari’s second term is also shaping up to be an unprecedentedly raucous celebration of corruption, injustice, depravity, and debauchery. It’s going to get ugly, really ugly. Get ready!
