In february 2019, Nigeria will again go to the poll. As l pulled my TIME Magazine January 21 Edition for Europé, l saw a small headline that took a big part of my attention.

I read TIME Magazine for fun, and to keep abreast with the news that l don’t catch on television.

Ian Bremmers verdict on Nigeria 2019

 

Ian Bremmer listed Nigeria as one of the top 10 risks for 2019. He is right because truly a storm is gathering in Nigeria. For his short analyses, see the images in this essay.

Ian’s short analyses gave Atiku Abubakar as the only opponent of Muhammadu Buhari.  That is an underestimation of popular candidates like Omoyele Sowore, Kingsley Moghalu and Fela Durotoye. There is also a former minister, Mrs. Ezekwesili in the race for the presidency.

The incubent Mr. Buhari definitely should not be contesting for this position anymore. He is suffering from aggravated dementia and an undefined mental complicity that only his family members or doctors can elaborate on.

Mr. Buhari likely forged his age. His contemporaries are well into their 80s while he claimed to be 76 years old.

Mr. Atiku is therefore about the same age as Buhari, which is very unlikely.

The 2019 elections may turn violent because the cabal controlling Mr. Buhari are keen on holding on to power. In recent weeks, they have made some security appointment in the police still replacing the former Inspector general with a new one from the north of the country. Invariably all the security chiefs in Nigeria are from Northern Nigeria.

Buhari is the most nepotic president in the history of the world. It is either he is insensitive to the fact that Nigeria is a diverse country or his brain is still in 1984 when he was a military dictator or he is outrightly ”mad”. It is not clear what i wrong with Mr. Buhari but dementia and memory loss are very obvious symptoms.

TIME 100 Most Influential People in the World: Lies and Jargons

By Adeola Aderounmu

I read with dismay the nonsense comments written by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Goodluck Jonathan. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Almost what Ellen wrote are lies that any dummy can verify. How that beats the TIME editorial beats my imaginations.

In Bayelsa, Jonathan had nothing to show for his time as the governor, just like Alamieyeseigha his boss who was arrested in London but later escaped as a woman. Jonathan’s wife is a well-known money launderer. She could have only stolen through her husband’s access to power.

Under Jonathan, Corruption in Nigeria reached a new height. What is Ellen talking about? What kind of madness has been published in TIME to deceive the world?

Jonathan has almost emptied the Nigerian treasury buying Presidential jets after presidential jet.

Under Late Yar Adua and Jonathan, James Ibori who sponsored their elections as president and vice president in 2007 is a saint. In London Ibori has become the most famous prisoner.

Which corruption is Jonathan fighting in Ellen’s and TIME’s worlds?

It is one thing to say that Jonathan is influential-all Nigerian presidents and head of states who have looted the treasury are all influential-it is another thing to write nonsense to feed the world. It is unacceptable.

Of course Jonathan is influential. Nigeria is probably going to finish under him with the spate of bombings that have turned Nigeria to one of the most dangerous places to live in the world.

Who needs a greater influence?
