It is happening now: Nigeria is at the head of 46 days of a
billions of naira aggressive campaign sponsoring ethnic fractionation,
religious strife and media propagated slander and libel.
SaharaReporters came under early attack with the Nigerian
army being recruited by the Presidency to castigate the reputable New York
based media as “Boko Haram sponsors.” This was in addition to several smear
campaigns in recent weeks against the media and its ownership.
The person of the chief opposition candidate, General
Muhammadu Buhari is center recipient of the invested targeted slander; the
presidential aspirant has begun to be targeted in aggressive slander campaigns.
Tolu Ogunlesi a world renowned author just picked up one such fake twitter
handle created Friday and promoted by @PDPYF to paint Buhari as a religious
The plan is to paint the opposition as risky and fanatical
and to spin a web of false allegations of northerners being behind Boko Haram
and the usual crap. An article in THISDAY on December 29th with a catchy
caption, “How 30 Boko Haram insurgents overran 1000 troops in Mubi,” lured
readers then slammed them with paragraphs of religious hate political

The article written by a certain Senator Iroegbu made the
nonsensical allegations that all the northern Emirs and leaders left were
sympathetic to Boko Haram. It further stated that all the troops who abandoned
posts and were being investigated by the army were northern Boko Haram
sympathizers; though this is clearly mischievous and false as the names
involved are from across Nigeria and do not portray this bigotry clam. After
all it was Alex Badeh who announced the scam cease fire that cost Nigerians the
most lives and territory this year.
Nigerians can expect hundreds of new accounts, texts,
messages and unusual media articles in bought over editorials through the next
46 days, being sponsored with the available 21 billion naira and the donations
of other Cabal like Dangote who did not yet donate at the Presidential fund
raiser. A billion dollars may potentially be invested at the day’s end in
seeking an electoral victory for Jonathan. The implication of this heavy
investment in dividing Nigeria along religious and ethnic lines will well out
live this presidential cycle.
Nigerians must realize that they are targeted for
destruction. All hands must be on deck to reject these billion of naira

The Boko Haram ploy failed as Nigerians now realize the role
of accused Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, the President’s right hand man and
Jonathan’s Chadian counterpart at the heart of the Boko Haram insurgency. The
fake cease fire that allowed Boko Haram regroup and capture and kill across the
northeast exposed these conspirators against the Nigerian State.
The Presidency and Cabal who are afraid of change and hope
for mere Nigerians is turning to a last desperate, well funded media scheme to
gather together all fanatical anti-north and anti-Muslim sentiment and utilize
this in attempt to retain power. Nigerians must rise above this. Our poverty
unifies us; our religion and ethnicity must only be used in healthily competing
for excellence and not as a weapon against us to keep us subjugated and
oppressed by the unified Cabal.
Frankly, those involved and sponsoring the libel, hate
propaganda and ethnic sentiment should be arrested and hung for this promotion
of hate and deadly violence in Africa’s largest nation.
