Kudos To Punch For Fulani Herdsmen Expose — By Chinweizu


The Editor, Punch,

Congratulations on your powerful editorial of September 4, 2018 in which you dissected and exposed the false claims and disinformation by President Buhari about the killings by Fulani herdsmen; and in which you condemned the seeming helplessness of his administration in curbing their bloodthirsty rampage.

The case you make is incontrovertible. All the specific charges you make against President Buhari are valid. However, I suggest you reconsider your statement that Buhari is “clueless” about the real causes of the Fulani herders’ terrorism and about what to do to end it or bring the perpetrators to book.

Permit me to put forward for your consideration another hypothesis about Buhari’s role in all this mayhem.

Far from being clueless, Buhari is actually the political and military Commander-in-Chief of a Fulani Lebensraum Jihad against other Nigerians. He is a self-proclaimed Jihadist.

Accordingly, like Boko Haram, he does not recognize or obey the Constitution or laws of Nigeria. The only Constitution and laws he is obliged to respect is Sharia. As a Jihadist, he sees it as his duty to replace the Constitution with the Sharia as soon as he can.

And as a Fulani Jihadist, Buhari is the 21st century successor to Othman dan Fodio; and Buhari’s Jihad is doing to other Nigerians what Dan Fodio’s Jihad did to Hausa land in the early 19th century. In fact he is doing much more and worse.

Whereas Dan Fodio wanted to simply impose Fulani rule on the Hausas, Buhari wants to exterminate the other Nigerians, and give their land as Lebensraum (Living space) to Fulanis imported from outside Nigeria. His seeming cluelessness is a camouflage designed to deceive and confuse his victims and keep them clueless about his program.

Buhari knows what exactly he is doing; we too need to know what he is up to. Otherwise we won’t know how to resist and defeat him and save ourselves. Starting in 1960, the Fulani project in Nigeria has been: “Born to rule other Nigerians forever”.

It has now escalated to: “Kill off other Nigerians and take their homelands and give to the international Fulani as their new Allah-given homeland.”

And President Buhari is the political and military Commander-in-Chief of this Fulani project.  He therefore isn’t going to do anything to stop the project that he heads, no matter how vociferously Nigerians protest and desperately appeal to him.

That’s my alternative hypothesis.

I tender as evidence in support of my hypothesis the essay immediately below titled “Historical Key to understanding Buhari” which contains a link to the backgrounder essay “Caliphate Colonialism I: The Taproot of the Trouble with Nigeria”.

I tender also the attached essays titled “Discourse on our mumu” and “Fulani Lebensraum Jihad.”

Kindly share with me your opinion of this alternative hypothesis. And if you have any questions, please feel free to email them to me, and I shall do my best to answer them.

Yours in the cause of alerting Nigerians to save themselves from the Fulani Lebensraum Jihadists,

To understand the historical key to President Buhari and his Fulani Republic of Nigeria, read the below essay as well as the attachment:

Historical key to understanding Buhari and his Caliphate Jihadist Fulani Republic of Nigeria



In my view, much of the criticism of Buhari by Nigerian secularists and believers in democracy, misses the key point. They see him as a president who is failing in his job as a democratic leader.

In so doing, they proceed, in their complaints and criticism and hopes, from a radical misperception of Buhari, and in false expectation that their criticism will change him. Buhari is not a democrat come to fix Nigeria, play by the rules of the constitution, or entrench democracy. And no amount of criticism for failing at democracy will change him. So these critics are wasting their time.

If you still don’t understand that President Buhari is a Jihadist war leader waging war on Nigeria and its democracy, or if you don’t understand the Jihadist mentality and mission, then everything else you know about Buhari will only compound your confusion. So let’s try to see Buhari’s actions and inactions through the Jihadist lens.

Only when we understand that Buhari is A FULANI JIHADIST PRESIDENT OF THE FULANI REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, and that he is on Jihad against Nigeria and its democracy, will we understand that no amount of criticism from the democracy standpoint will have any effect on him.

Can you imagine an armed robber stopping his robbery in mid-operation because of moral objections made by those he is robbing? Or a cat stopping its catching and eating of mice because of howls of objection from the mice?

As a Jihad leader, Buhari has come to destroy democracy, not to practice or protect it. He is not here to play by the rules of the fake constitution that the Caliphate installed as a stopgap until they could get a Jihadist to replace it with Sharia.

Buhari is that Jihadist; and Buhari is here to impose Sharia on Nigeria. The only way to stop him and get democracy is to wage a Crusade and defeat him. A total crusade—political, economic, ideological, religious and military—is the only way to stop a Jihad.

Some claim Buhari is incompetent. But far from it; he is competent at what he is actually doing: waging Jihad. His seeming failure at democracy isn’t failure or incompetence at all. Can it be correctly said that someone is incompetent at what he is not doing or even trying to do, what he has chosen to not do?

What’s actually happening is this: Buhari enters the boxing ring ostensibly for a boxing match. But once there, he turns into a Bruce Lee and engages in Kung Fu combat, and unleashes Kung Fu kicks, hand chops, grapples and other attacks.

But his opponent, and the audience, don’t recognize what he is doing for what it is. So they claim he is not a good boxer, and even that he is an incompetent boxer. And they are hoping to get the referee to stop him. But there is no referee.

Not realizing what’s going on, his opponent is helpless, and can’t or won’t defend himself appropriately, by also abandoning the rules of boxing and picking up the stool in the corner of the ring and smashing it on Buhari’s nose to force him to stop his Kung Fu combat.

In other words, the non-Jihadists and anti-Jihadists should abandon the rules of democracy and launch a crusade to stop Buhari’s Jihad.

To appreciate these points, please read on.


Discourse on our mumu (3A edited) 2

Discourse on our “mumu”; Part 1 of “2015– Between Liberation and Slavery”

Copyright © by Chinweizu, 2015

A contribution to the Abuja symposium on “NATIONAL CONFAB AND THE 2015 GENERAL ELECTIONS” on MONDAY, 2ND FEBRUARY, 2015


Ladies and gentlemen, all protocols observed.

Let me start by apologizing for not being here before you to present my paper.  When some frontline captains of the True Federalism Constitution struggle—Yinka Odumakin, Amos Akingba and G.G. Darah– phoned me last Thursday and gave me the assignment to write and present to you a paper on “2015—Between Liberation and slavery”, I knew I was not fit enough to travel. But I had no choice but to do my duty, like a soldier summoned to the front by his regiment. So I got my ticket, was getting my bags packed, and preparing to set off to the airport when my old age ailments flared up and I had to abandon the trip on doctor’s orders. Luckily there is somebody there to read it to you. Sorry I am not there to answer your questions. But you know how it is: health first. The spirit was willing but the flesh was weak. And the body is boss.

I hope the organizers will collect and send me your questions so I can learn from them and try to answer them.

Thank you.


Non-caliphate Nigerians seem to have no clue what time it is in their history. They are unaware that they have arrived at the fateful junction where, depending on how they vote on February 14, they will either go into slavery for untold generations to come, or set out on a path to liberation. They have sleepwalked into their moment of fateful decision. If they don’t wake up now, they could vote themselves into slavery. But if, by some miracle, they are startled or shaken awake, they have a chance to vote their way out of the slavery path on which they have been for 70 years.

My task today is to help them see that such is the case. In this first section “Discourse on our mumu”, I shall explore why most Nigerians have been oblivious of what the basic struggle in Nigeria has been about since 1945. I shall then, in the section “2015 Election issues”, examine the issues that are dominating this election. And show why the peoples of the New South should not continue to allow themselves to be conned into voting for Buhari, the Caliphate candidate.

Discourse on Our “mumu”

“Our ‘mumu’ (is it stupidity?) has caught up with us. Now, no one can escape the dire consequences of living in our cultural and institutional deceit, self-denial and delusions.  In brotherly frankness, please take these from me”.

— Amos Akingba.

The quote is the last paragraph of Amos Akingba’s email of January 5th 2015 to his aburo. It shall be the text for my discourse on why the decades-long struggle for a True Federalism Constitution, TFC, stands today in danger of being defeated. What he calls “our mumu” is what has kept us from understanding what has been the main theme of Nigeria’s history, and from discerning the true significance of the imminent presidential election.

From the backroom where ill-health has confined me, I’ve been watching this struggle for a True Federalism Constitution, TFC, and I have a few observations to share with the elders and captains of the struggle.

The handwriting on the wall, as I see it, is that the chance of winning the struggle for TFC by dialogue and negotiation was lost on the 2014 National Confab floor during its closing session when Arewa delegates introduced a surprise amendment to the Confab Report requiring that it be sent to the NASS as proposed amendments to the 1999 Constitution. By not defeating that amendment, the non-Caliphate majority of the delegates threw away all the marvelous gains they had made. I call the non-Caliphate part of Nigeria the New South, i.e. south of Shariyaland. It is comprised of the geo-political zones of South-West, South-South, South-East, plus the Middle Belt [i.e. the North-Central zone as well as the indigenous non-Hausa-Fulani-Kanuri-peoples (Hafukawa) who are trapped in Shariyaland itself, such as the Zuru in Kebbi State, the Chibok in Borno State and the peoples of southern Kaduna State.] The alliance that the New South delegates began at the Confab secured far reaching recommendations in the Confab Report. In not defeating that surprise and last minute Arewa amendment, the New South delegates sent the report to a NASS where Arewa can kill or gut it.  Unless their fraudulently built-in dominance at the NASS can somehow be overcome, Arewa will get NASS to nullify the Confab Report and return the struggle for TFC to square zero where it started decades ago.

Why that amendment was not defeated is a matter for another discussion. My aim here is to draw attention to what should be done to begin to reverse that setback. Every struggle suffers its setbacks, some avoidable, some not avoidable. But once it has happened, the challenge is to recover from the setback and push on till you achieve victory. To help promote such recovery, permit me to make some suggestions, starting with the quite obvious, since the obvious has a tendency to be overlooked in human affairs.

A postmortem session

The first thing a team or group should do after a setback, and indeed after every operation, whether successful or not, is a post mortem, Review, Stocktaking (a.k.a. Criticism Self-Criticism, CSC,) session.

During their post-Confab CSC session, I suggest that the prime concern of the True Federalism Constitution, TFC, leaders should be to understand what Amos Akingba has perceptively and provocatively called “Our mumu.” The second issue that the CSC session should take up is the rebranding of the TFC struggle and turning it into the New South Liberation Movement, NSLM.

Firstly, what is “our mumu” and how do we end it?

Here is my take on what it is.

To guide our understanding of it, here are two precepts from Sun Tzu, the master strategician (expert in strategics, the science of strategy) from ancient China:

(a) “One who is not acquainted with the designs of his neighbors should not enter alliances with them.”

(b) “Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated.”

Our “mumu”, broadly speaking, has been our ignorance and non-application of these two precepts.

But our principal mumu has been our ignorance of precept (a). Discovering the designs of our neighbor, by showing us that we have an enemy and who that enemy is, will help cure us of our disregard of precept (b). So let’s focus on precept (a).

Our “mumu” is our refusal to understand the designs of our Caliphate neighbors [a.k.a the Hafukawa (the Hausa-Fulani-Kanuri people), the Arewa sosei (the True North) or the Shariyalanders] with whom we addictively insist on cohabiting Lugard’s Nigeria. What we have refused to understand may be broken down into the following items:

Mumu #1: The Caliphate is the subcontractor to whom the British colonialists, under cover of granting independence in 1960, handed over Nigeria to colonize for them. They are the licensed sub-colonizers for the British imperialists.

Mumu #2: The ambition of the Caliphate, its design on its neighbors in Nigeria, is to be the perpetual colonial masters over all other Nigerians –this is sometimes hazily glimpsed as their “born to rule” mentality. The non-Caliphate Nigerians have failed to investigate the designs of our Caliphate neighbors. As a result, we have not understood who it is we insist on cohabiting Nigeria with. Without knowing their colonialist designs, we have sought to build a “One-Nigeria” in which they are included as partners. In so doing, we have been like mice who insist on cohabiting a cage with a cat, on the blind assumption that the cat is their brother, and is just another mouse, and therefore not a predator who eats mice.  The cat has gladly gone along with the foolish and undiscerning mice, hoping they’ll never wise up to its designs on them until it’s too late for them.

Mumu #3:  The Caliphate uses religion, its project of “advancing Sharia”, as cover for expanding its influence, beyond its Arewa/Shariyaland base area, into the rest of its inherited colony that’s called Nigeria.

Mumu #4: The Caliphate is incorrigibly anti-democracy, and will use whatever it can — coups, pogroms, fraudulent constitutions, rigged elections etc. — to prevent democracy from taking root in Nigeria. That is the prime lesson from June 12 and the frauds of the 1999 constitution, but we’ve refused to learn and apply it.

Ignorance of, and even willful refusal to understand, these four things is what constitutes “our mumu.” Our “mumu” has been the radical error of the non-Caliphate Nigerians since negotiations for independence began in the mid-1940s. It is still with us as we go into the 2015 elections. And that is where it could continue to accomplish our permanent enslavement to the Caliphate.

For some 70 years now, we have assumed that the Caliphate is simply our partner in the project of winning independence from Britain and building Nigeria into a nation. But, in fact, the Caliphate has always had other designs. It has been a colonialist predator and not our partner in building “One-Nigeria”. We non-Caliphate Nigerians have been acting on this lack of understanding of our Caliphate “partners”. Here are key examples:

  • 1950s: Because they wanted a big One-Nigeria, the South (the then Eastern and Western regions) delayed their independence and waited for a North which claimed it was not ready. Had they understood the colonialist designs of the Caliphate, they would have refused to even consider the idea of co-existing with the Caliphate within Nigeria, and would have taken their independence separately in 1956. In waiting for the North, the South were like mice on a ship who refused to set sail until the cat came on board. That was our Mumu #2 in action.
  • 1970s: During the negotiation for the 1979 constitution, the North insisted on inclusion of Sharia in a “secular” constitution. They were accommodated without our realizing that we were accommodating a cat among the mice. That was our Mumu #3 in action.
  • 2014: At the National Confab, the Arewa delegates came organized as a militant colonialist corps determined to protect their empire at any cost. But the non-Caliphate delegates went there without consciously organizing as a militant anti-colonialist Crusader corps to battle the Caliphate colonialist Jihadist corps. Whereas the Confab was taken as a serious battlefield by the Arewa delegates, the non-Caliphate delegates approached the Confab as if it was a Boardroom negotiation between partners in building “One-Nigeria”. That, again, was our Mumu #2 in action.
  • Then, after having made significant gains in the negotiations, the non-Caliphate delegates failed to defeat the last minute Arewa trickster amendment that, rather than bypassing the NASS and treating the report as a basis for an entirely new constitution, sent the report to the NASS as mere recommendations for amending the fraudulent 1999 constitution. Had they gone to the Confab with the militant spirit of freedom fighters for liberation from Caliphate Colonialism, they would have been on high alert and would not have allowed that trickster amendment to go through. Again that was our Mumu#2 in action.
  • 2015: As we head towards the February elections, the Nigerian voters, not having learned the prime lesson of June 12, are ignorant of the incorrigible anti-democracy character of the Caliphate colonialists. They therefore regard the Jonathan-Buhari contest as just another contest between two Nigerian democrats. Not recognizing that Buhari is the candidate and agent of the anti-democracy Caliphate colonialists who aborted June 12, or not recognizing what the Caliphate’s anti-democracy would mean should Buhari win, many are prepared to vote for Buhari rather than against him. That is our Mumu #4 in action.

This is quite ominous. Just as the Caliphate, from its fear of democracy, aborted June 12, you can bet that, through an elected or rigged-in “President Buhari,” it will abort the present experiment in democracy using any means it finds necessary–coup (as Buhari did during Shehu Shagari’s second term), army mutiny, pogrom, martial law, state of emergency, the illegal suspension of the constitution or some other gimmick that would help them eternally entrench their fraudulent 1999 constitution. Buhari is hypocritically posing as a democrat who will sweep the political stables clean of corruption etc. From his history we know he won’t. Enemies of democracy have been known to get into office through democratic election only to turn and destroy the democracy by which they won power. That’s exactly how Hitler got the power with which he plagued the world. So beware of Buhari’s democratic posturing. Recall his tyranny when he was military Head of State and learn your lesson. Can the leopard change his spots or the cat stop mousing? So, the main issue in this election is Buhari together with the Caliphate colonialism that he represents. Do we want them to perpetually enslave us and rub pepper into our eyes? That’s what our history says should determine how we vote. If Buhari wins, we are defeated and will end up permanently enslaved to the Caliphate Colonialists. But if Buhari is defeated, we have a chance to continue our liberation struggle.

The first task of Nigerians today should be to understand our “mumu,” and having done so, to work out ways to end it.  After recognizing the designs of our Caliphate neighbors for what they are–namely Caliphate colonialism, that is to say, the perpetual enslavement of all non-Caliphate Nigerians–we can understand that they are the enemy in our midst and why. Having come to know our enemy, we would have fulfilled the first part of Sun Tzu’s precept: “know the enemy . . .”

Without knowing that the Caliphate is our enemy, we can’t hope to win our struggle for True Federalism Constitution, TFC.

After the leaders of the TFC struggle understand all that, their next task should be to get, through sustained public enlightenment campaigns, the tens of millions of non-Caliphate Nigerians to also understand and end this our “mumu.” Only then can they vote in their own basic and long-term strategic interests and vote against Buhari and the Caliphate.

Whether that public enlightenment task can be accomplished before Feb. 14 is another matter. But however much can be done should be done. Regardless of who wins, the enlightenment campaign should be continued thereafter so as to prepare the minds of non-Caliphate Nigerians for the post-election resumption of the struggle for TFC.  That knowledge will help to mobilize them for the rest of the struggle.

Let me sum up briefly. We need to know that the Caliphate is an incorrigible colonizer and anti-democracy feudalist; it is determined to colonize and perpetually enslave all the other Nigerians. You can’t defeat an enslaver until you recognize that his mission is to enslave you. It is only after gaining that precious insight that you can organize appropriately and do whatever is necessary to defeat him. Gaining that insight and acting on it would constitute the ending of our “mumu.” If Buhari wins on February 14, then all of us of the New South lose — regardless of our religion, regardless of our ethnicity, regardless of our political party; and we all and our posterity become slaves of the Caliphate colonialists.

Why rebrand as the New South Liberation Movement, NSLM?
Another issue that the Criticism-Self-Criticism session should take up is the rebranding of the struggle and turning it into the New South Liberation Movement, NSLM. So, why rebrand? Why NSLM?

A crucial step in ending our “mumu” is for us to recognize that the issue for us all in the New South is liberation or slavery.

One consequence of our “mumu” has been our comparatively laid back approach to the struggle. Instead of meeting the militancy of Arewa with our own counter militancy, we have been making gentleman, negotiating rather than fighting. In December 2013, on the way to the National Conference, one of the Caliphate militants, Dr Junaid Mohammed, even warned us that “Supporters of Sovereign National Conference, SNC, are  asking for civil war” and that “There’ll be bloodshed, if Jonathan runs”. And, like mumu, we failed to take the hint, failed to realize that they were already in war mode going into the Jonathan 2014 National Conference. And the New South delegates went to the same conference in gentlemanly, negotiations mode. The other side has been fighting with the vigilance and courage of desperation, the desperation of a hungry lion who won’t let his prey escape and deny him his dinner.

Now a prey under attack by a predator needs to fight with even greater desperation from fear of losing its life. But we have not been doing so because we have not realized that we are in a fight for our lives and liberty. They have an empire to lose; we have our liberty to regain, but have not been keen to pay the inevitable price for our liberty. They have threatened war to defend the constitution by which they feed on us; are we determined to go to war to get the constitution that will protect us from becoming their dinner? We have everything going for us, except the most important: we are not desperate for our freedom. The other side is desperate to deprive us of our freedom but we are not desperate for it —we are not desperate to keep even what little of it we haven’t lost in the last six decades of fake independence, let alone get the full liberty that we sought to regain by struggling for independence. If we continue in the laidback mood and negotiating mode exhibited at the National Confab, we will lose everything.

Now, rebranding our cause will do wonders for us. Here’s how.
By redefining the struggle as a struggle for liberation rather than a negotiation for more suitable terms for cohabitation, we gain several advantages:

  1. We clarify that we have an enemy and identify him as the Caliphate colonialist who wants to conquer, dominate and enslave us. We stop seeing him as a negotiating partner for our common good in Lugard’s “One-Nigeria.”
  2. Knowing that we have this common enemy provides us with a basis for a fighting unity. The entire New South, the assorted victims of Caliphate Colonialism, will now see the reason to band together to fight and win our collective freedom from our common enemy. The Caliphate will then lose the advantages of its divide and dominate tactics of the past. That’s why we should rebrand as the New South Liberation Movement.
  3. This rebranding will jolt us out of a negotiating mode and into a fighting mode.
    4. It will spark in us the militant enthusiasm of freedom fighters who are defending their people, culture and territory.
  4. Fighting for our territory and people and culture will spark the enhanced energies, alertness and creativity that comes with fighting for life and liberty. A man chased by a killer can leap a wall of 7ft, or a ditch of 20ft.

Such are the decisive advantages that this proposed rebranding will bring to our side: clarity, unity, fighting spirit, enhanced energies and creativity, as well as militant enthusiasm.

Let me sum up. In attempting to craft a True Federalism Constitution for a Nigeria that includes the Caliphate we have been like mice negotiating with a cat the terms of their cohabitation in a cage.  We have not recognized that the Caliphate cat is not our partner in the project of building a Nigerian Nation-state but our colonial master and enslaver. Therefore we have been “mumu”–actually suicidal “mumu”–negotiating the best terms for our own murder by the cat.  If we mean to stay alive, we should be organizing among ourselves for our liberation from both the cage and the cat.  That’s what the TFC campaign should be turned into. Switching from one perception of our struggle to the other is the radical transformation we now need to effect. And rebranding the movement will help us redefine our task and produce a galvanizing change in our perspective and attitude to the struggle for TFC. Most importantly, it will help us recognize that we have an enemy from whom we need to liberate ourselves. When we start talking of liberation we will recognize that our struggle is a continuation of the aborted 1950s struggle for freedom and independence.

This rebranding would reconfigure our project and correct the radical error, our “mumu”, that has crippled us for the past 70 years. It will result in the militancy we have lacked, as well as bring us unity among ourselves. Recognizing that we all need liberation from the same enemy will end our susceptibility to the divide and rule tactics of the Caliphate cat. The new perspective will foster the unity we need to win our liberation struggle.

2015 Presidential Election Issues

Part II of “2015– Between Liberation and Slavery”

Copyright © by Chinweizu, 2015


A contribution to the Abuja symposium on “NATIONAL CONFAB AND THE 2015 GENERAL ELECTIONS” on MONDAY, 2ND FEBRUARY 2015



After that historical backgrounder, I shall now examine 4 election issues, the two on everybody’s mind —Corruption and Insecurity, with insecurity in the two forms of Boko Haram and The Fulani militia, plus two other issues that are not but should be on everybody’s mind namely, the 1999 Constitution—hereafter referred to as the Constitution; and Candidate Buhari.  So all in all I shall examine 5 distinct election issues: Corruption; Boko Haram; The Fulani Militia; the 1999 Constitution; and Candidate Buhari.

  1. On Corruption, I submit that, under the Constitution, no President of Nigeria can tackle corruption without inviting impeachment, simply because corruption is encouraged and protected by the constitution which he is sworn to enforce.
  2. On Boko Haram, I submit that it is partly funded through the structures of the Constitution and can’t be extinguished without first discarding the Constitution. I also submit that a military solution to Boko Haram is not possible under the Constitution.
  3. On The Fulani Militia, I submit that it is an ethnic cleansing and land grabbing instrument of the Caliphate and a mortal danger to all other Nigerians, and that it can’t be curbed under the Constitution.
  4. On the Constitution, I submit that it is the godfather of corruption, as well as the codification of the sources of all the vices that plague Nigeria, and that Nigeria cannot be reformed without discarding it. Though ostensibly democratic, its frauds make it a fake-democracy constitution.
  5. On Candidate Buhari, I submit that he has neither the will nor the ability to discard the Constitution but has every reason to perpetuate it. Accordingly he can’t solve any of the problems whose solution requires discarding the Constitution. So, those who expect him to change Nigeria by solving these problems are taking themselves for a ride.

From these submissions I argue that because these top problems —Corruption, Insecurity in its Boko Haram and Fulani Militia forms — can be solved only after scrapping the Constitution, the principal election issue becomes the Constitution itself and how to replace it.  Hence, this election should be decided by the answer the candidates give to just one question: What’s your program for replacing the Constitution?

I shall now discuss these submissions one by one.

  1. Corruption:

On Corruption, I submit that, under the Constitution, no President of Nigeria can tackle corruption without inviting impeachment, simply because corruption is encouraged and protected by the constitution which he is sworn to enforce. Here is why.

First of all, let’s get terminologically accurate. What we call “corruption” in Nigeria is actually lootocracy — the government of the people, by organized crime syndicates or mafias a.k.a. political parties, for the looting of the treasury. Thus correctly understood, the Nigeria Nation-state is a criminal enterprise.

Secondly, the 1999 Constitution has entrenched and institutionalized lootocracy. The constitution, by its so-called security vote together with its immunity clause for the top office holders, effectively invites them to loot with impunity. And, naturally, what the top officers of the state do, their subordinates emulate.

During the National Dialogue, in my piece in the Guardian titled “Four reasons to scrap the 1999 Constitution”, I pointed out that the 1999 Constitution is the godfather of corruption, through the immunity clause 308. (1), which protects, and thereby implicitly invites, looting by the highest officials who have brazenly set the terrible example that the rest of society have emulated. However, it ostentatiously declares in Section 14. (5) that ‘The State shall abolish all corrupt practices and abuse of power’, thus giving the impression that it is for fighting corruption. But it then surreptitiously annuls Section 14. (5) by section 6. (6)(c), its ouster clause. It is a fraud for the godfather of corruption to give the impression that it is against corruption, and the fraud is compounded when it empowers the state to fight corruption but then surreptitiously discourages it from doing so. That’s double duplicity!

Because of this fraud of an ouster, which makes non-justiciable its provision that “The State shall abolish all corrupt practices and abuse of power”, so long as we have that constitution, nobody can end lootocracy.

That fraud aside, the cost of seeking office  under the system created by the 1999 Constitution is so high that only looters or those sponsored by and beholden to looters (godfathers) can seek election to any public office at any level—LGA, State, or Federal. And Nigerians expect them to end looting after they are elected? You got to be out of your mind or just fooling yourself!

Given that the Constitution has entrenched and institutionalized lootocracy by these devices, if a president–who is sworn to uphold the constitution–attempts to fight lootocracy, he would be breaking his oath of office and inviting impeachment.

The fact of life is that Nigerians live by “corruption”, they grow rich by “corruption”, or aspire to do so whenever they get the opportunity. At donation time, they celebrate the looters who donate to their causes. And, contradictorily, they can’t do without the pleasure of complaining about “corruption”. That daily ritual is part of their daily entertainment and frustration reliever. For these reasons, any anti-corruption talk in Nigeria is either a joke or a scam.

As far as the political charade is concerned, anybody who wants to get into office and loot the state coffers knows that the easy way to excite and dupe the voters is to pose as an anti-corruption fighter. But when he gets there, as he already knows, he can’t do anything about it because the constitution has entrenched and given protection to “corruption”. Because of the constitutional obstacle to eliminating “corruption”, it should not be an issue in any Nigerian election. It is a false issue, a problem that no candidate or party can do anything about. Their making an issue of it is like cripples boasting about which of them can run a mile in two minutes. In election contests, it should be removed and replaced with the issue of what to do about the fraudulent constitution that protects “corruption”.

The tragedy is that even those who want a True Federalism Constitution, TFC, didn’t do enough, especially during the National Dialogue, to make the 1999 Constitution the main issue in the public mind. So, “corruption” continues to obsess the public, and regardless of who Jega’s INEC proclaims the winner, the lootocracy is safe, and the looting will go on, and on and on, and so too the clamor against “corruption”, until Nigerians get tired of the charade and face the reality that the 1999 Constitution must be removed, as the first step, if lootocracy is to be tamed.

Hence, anybody who thinks that, under Nigeria’s 1999 Constitution, any government, party or president can eradicate corruption is like a man who expects a worm to give birth to a lion, or who wants to go to heaven but doesn’t want to die.


  1. Boko Haram

On Boko Haram, I submit that it is partly funded through the structures of the Constitution and can’t be extinguished without first discarding the Constitution. I also submit that a military solution to Boko Haram is not possible under the Constitution.

Who gave Boko Haram to Nigeria?

In 2012, we got this statement from Mustapha Jokolo, the former No 2 man in the Caliphate system:

Northern politicians created Boko Haram – Mustapha Jokolo, former Emir of Gwandu

The Constitution helps to support the Boko Haram insurgency. How?

The Constitution helps to fund Boko Haram through the federal funding of the Shariya States and their governors. Being the governors of Shariyaland States, their sympathies are with Boko Haram which is campaigning for implementation of Shari’a. How much of these funds end up in Boko Haram hands needs to be investigated.

Can Boko Haram be defeated under the Constitution? Probably not, because by the structures and provisions of the Constitution:

(a) The governments of the Shariyaland States will get statutory budget allocations which the Boko Haram sponsors among them can divert to their terrorist agency — Boko Haram.

(b) The fifth column of Boko Haram sympathizers from those States will remain part of the Nigerian military, and will continue, from the inside, to sabotage military operations against Boko Haram as in this report by London based EAGLE EYE REPORT WORLDWIDE:

The apprehension and detention of 9 Northern generals for supporting the Northern insurgents has grave implications for Nigeria that makes irrelevant all talk of any election by the politicians for April 2015. The Nigerian Army can’t last as a cohesive organization for much longer.

The Junior northern officers are actively planning a coup because they know that the courtmarshal process of those 9 Gambari generals will invariably affect them also as they will be implicated for following direct orders of those generals.

The punishment for charge of mutiny, sabotage, treason etc. charges laid against these 9 courtmashaled generals in military tribunals is usually firing squad just like coup.



(c) The Boko Haram sponsors who are embedded in all levels of the Nigerian Nation-state apparatus will continue to obstruct efforts to politically defeat Boko Haram, and will supply intelligence to Boko Haram. As President Jonathan revealed back in 2012:

“Boko Haram is everywhere, in the executive arm of government, in the legislative arm of government and even in the judiciary. Some are also in the armed forces, the police and other security agencies,” Jonathan said. “Some continue to dip their hands and eat with you and you won’t even know the person who will point a gun at you or plant a bomb behind your house.”

Boko Haram has infiltrated my government, says Jonathan

January 8, 2012



Part of Nigeria’s difficulty in solving the Boko Haram problem is that Shariyaland has a pervasive fifth column within the Nigerian government and political parties. This fifth column is aiding and abetting Boko Haram; it consists of Shariyaland citizens who are holding positions in Nigerian governments and political parties, all the way from the Vice Presidency to party members in both the ruling PDP and the opposition APC. It includes the governors and NASS legislators from Shariyaland; it includes Shariyaland personnel in the security forces (Police, Army, Navy, Air Force, Intelligence Agencies, Customs, Immigration etc.) in the media, the economy, etc.

Can you imagine Britain winning its war against Germany if it had in its cabinet, parliament, armed forces, media, banks, civil service, and every institution of British life, a huge fifth column of Germans loyal to Hitler and organized to assist Hitler?

Or can you imagine Abraham Lincoln winning the US civil war if his Vice President was a Confederate politician, his cabinet included Confederate men, the Congress still included Confederate legislators, and the Union Army was full of Confederate generals and soldiers?

That is the fundamental anomaly that Nigeria must rectify if it is to respond correctly to Boko Haram. And that rectification requires abrogation of the 1999 Constitution.

A political solution is not possible under the Constitution because it would require the stopping of funding to the States of Shariyaland, and that would be unconstitutional.

Even a military solution is not possible under the Constitution.  Why? Under the Constitution, any army sent to fight Boko Haram will contain Muslim officers and men who have religious sympathies for Boko Haram, and who will see it as their religious duty to sabotage operations. To keep them out of the army would be impossible under the Constitution. Hence both a military and a political solution would require scrapping the Constitution.

  1. The Fulani militia

On the Fulani Militia, I submit that it is an ethnic cleansing and land grabbing instrument of the Caliphate and a mortal danger to all other Nigerians, and that it can’t be curbed under the Constitution.

Attacks by these well-armed Fulani herdsmen have been reported in Oyo, Ogun, Plateau, Benue, Abia and other States. The cows they are rearing belong to the Caliphate magnates including the Sultan, emirs, governors, ministers, senior military men and other high government officials. The Sultan of Sokoto is the Chairman of the Board of trustees of MACBAN, the Cattle Breeders Association, which is behind the Fulani herders and their Militia. MACBAN has invoked the freedom of movement sections of the Constitution to support the freedom of its cattle herders to trespass upon and destroy farms in their search for pasture for their cattle. Furthermore, there is a bill — the National Grazing Routes or Reserves bill, which seeks to carve out grazing lands for Fulani herdsmen in each State in Nigeria. Even while the bill is yet to become law, the Fulani Militia is already unilaterally enforcing it.  The Fulani Militia is Nigeria’s equivalent of the ethnic-cleansing Janjawid of Darfur.

The Fulani Militia cannot be curbed under the constitution whereby their grazing reserves are to be set up. So long as the Constitution remains, the menace of the Fulani Militia is unlikely to be curbed.

  1. The Constitution:

On the Constitution, I submit that it is the godfather of corruption, as well as the codification of the sources of all the vices that plague Nigeria, and that Nigeria cannot be reformed without discarding it. Though ostensibly democratic, its frauds make it a fake-democracy constitution.

As I showed during the National Dialogue, in my piece in the Guardian titled “Four reasons to scrap 1999 Constitution”, it contains at least four frauds and is probably the most fraudulent constitution in the world. These fatal frauds are:

(1.) The “We the people” fraud;

(2.) The “Federation” fraud;

(3.) The “Fighting corruption” masquerade/fraud; and

(4.) The “Socially responsible State” masquerade/fraud.

That piece can be consulted in the Guardian of November 6 and 7, 2013. I further submit that Nigeria cannot be reformed without discarding the 1999 Constitution. That’s because these frauds make it impossible to legally compel the Nigerian State to execute any of its duties to the citizens. Any measure to reform Nigeria would require legally forcing the State to implement constitutional duties that it is already licensed to ignore.

You need to find out who cooked up and imposed this constitution and why. Now, this 1999 Constitution is the mature version of the 1979 constitution. Its 1979 prototype was cooked up by two Caliphate agents, the now late Chief Rotimi Williams, a.k.a “Timi the Law,” and Prof. Ben Nwabueze. The mature version of 1999 was finalized and polished up by a Caliphate man, Prof. Auwalu Yadudu, and imposed by Decree 34 of 1999 by another Caliphate agent, Gen. Abdusalami Abubakar. Why was it cooked up with so many frauds and other devices that serve the Caliphate? The Caliphate hates democracy, hates free and fair elections, that’s why. It only likes elections that it rigs in advance, so it is sure to win and hang on to power. That was why Sultan Dasuki organized the annulment of the June 12 election–the most free and fair election in Nigeria’s history. And after aborting democracy in 1993, the Caliphate cooked up this fraudulent Constitution so it can avoid any real democracy in the future. It is very cleverly fixed up so the Caliphate can use it to dominate and loot Nigeria forever.

Like most Nigerians, you probably think that IBB annulled the June 12 election. He didn’t, Sultan Dasuki did. MKO Abiola, the winner of June 12 and IBB, the organizer of that impressive transition program, were both victims of June 12. Dasuki’s agents who helped to get the annulment accomplished, such as General Abacha, Lt. General Dogonyaro and Brigadier General David Mark, as Prof. Omo Omoruyi reports, were prepared “to kill the President and the President-Elect if the June 12 election were allowed to go forward.” Faced with this prospect, IBB prudently went along with Sultan Dasuki’s fait accompli. The then General David Mark who is now Senator David Mark, the Senate president, threatened and said “I’d shoot Chief Abiola the day NEC pronounces him the elected President.”  Go and ask him. If he denies it, call in Prof. Omo Omoruyi and IBB to expose him.

The Caliphate’s idea of democracy was summed up by Aminu Saleh, a Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, under Abacha, who told Prof. Omoruyi: ‘Professor, my vote is not the same weight as the vote of the Emir of Bauchi and the vote of the Emir of Bauchi is not the same weight as the vote of the Sultan of Sokoto”. He then said “that is why we are not going to accept the mandate which Chief Abiola is claiming”. . . . Abiola’s mandate was, of course, based on the principle of one-person-one vote which the Caliphate hates like the devil hates holy water. If you want to be educated on the Caliphate’s incurable hatred for democracy, the book to read is Prof. Omo Omruyi’s The Tale of June 12. I am bringing up all that just to indicate how much the Caliphate hates democracy and hates free and fair elections, and to give you the reason why they cooked up this fraudulent anti-democracy constitution. And when you gather to draft a True Federalism Constitution, make sure that the likes of ‘Timi the Law’, Prof. Nwabueze and Prof. Yadudu are far from the hall, lest they pollute the Peoples ‘True Federalism Constitution’ with clever anti-the-People frauds.

  1. Candidate Buhari:

On Candidate Buhari, I submit that he has neither the will nor the ability to discard the Constitution but has every reason to perpetuate it. Accordingly he can’t solve any of the problems whose solution requires discarding the Constitution. So, those who expect him to change Nigeria by solving these problems are taking themselves for a ride. Why?

We shall consider two questions about Candidate Buhari:  His posturing as a born-again democrat, and his ability to fight Boko Haram.

After he lost the 2011 election, Buhari told the world that should he be declared the loser in 2015, dog and baboon will be soaked in blood. That is to say, if the voters do not elect him he will unleash violence on them. Now is that a democrat’s position?  Consider an election where the voters go to the polls with one of the candidates holding a gun to their heads and saying “vote for me or you are dead”. Would such an election be free and fair? The wonder is that INEC went ahead to approve a candidate who has publicly threatened massive violence if he is not declared elected. The second wonder is that the International Community has passed over Buhari’s threat without taking any action. What has Jimmy Carter or his Carter Center said or done about this threat to a free and fair election?   Why is Buhari not in the dock in De Hague facing trial for making threats of post-election violence? If Gbagbo was taken to De Hague, and Uhuru Kenyatta too, why not Buhari? Is the International Community not interested in preventive action? Is it waiting for people to be slaughtered before feeling obliged to do something? Given his tyrannical actions when he was military Head of State in the 1980s, and now his threat of post-election violence, Buhari can’t be the democrat he is pretending to be. Anybody who is inclined to accept Buhari’s posturing should be reminded of the Chinese saying: Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me.

Buhari and Boko Haram

Candidate Buhari is creating the impression that he will fight, and knows how to fight, Boko Haram. But will Buhari really fight Boko Haram?

I think not. Because, (a) Buhari is the Boko Haram candidate; (b1) Buhari’s agenda and Boko Haram’s are the same — Islamizing all of Nigeria; and (b2) their attitude to the Sultan and emirs is the same. And (c) Boko Haram and Buhari are sponsored by the same Northern politicians.

(a) Boko Haram is supporting its candidate Buhari by escalating its attacks in the run up to the elections, so as to demonstrate that the Jonathan administration isn’t succeeding in ending the Boko Haram insurgency, and implying that Buhari, therefore, should get a chance to become President and try. They are trying to shape opinion in favor of their preferred candidate for President.

(b1) They both want Shari’a in all the States in Nigeria. Buhari said so back in 2001:

Buhari Calls for Sharia in All States

And Boko Haram said the same in 2011:

Boko Haram to FG “Total Shari’a in Nigeria or no Peace”

…Says Qur’an is Above Nigerian Constitution

 (Accessed October 2012)



(b2) Buhari and Boko Haram have the same view of the Sultan and the emirs. In his October 2011 email, Boko Haram’s Abu Qaqa declared “our position is that the Sultan is just a traditional ruler who revolted against the teachings of his ancestors and put the Nigerian Constitution ahead of the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the traditions of the Prophet.”

NaijaPundit had earlier published a leaked wikileaks cable in which the Buhari team had told American Embassy officials that they had no confidence in the Northern Traditional rulers in general while naming the Sultan of Sokoto and the emir of Kano specifically as people who had tried to corrupt the judiciary.

(c) Buhari is the candidate of the sponsors of Boko Haram. The Arewa Consultative Forum and the Arewa Elders’ Forum, which have both endorsed Buhari as their candidate, are leaders of the Northern politicians who, according to Major Jokolo, the former Emir of Gwandu, are the sponsors of Boko Haram.

Given that their aims, views and supporters are the same, will Buhari have the will to fight his jihadist Boko Haram comrades? Does a politician fight his constituency and supporters? Does a jockey stab the horse he is riding?

Nevertheless Buhari claims he can end the insurgency. How? Let’s figure it out.

As a political or military solution is not possible under the Constitution, the only way Buhari can end the Boko Haram insurgency is to defuse it. And for that he would have to appease them by destroying the democracy that Boko Haram loathes, and then turn all of Nigeria into a Shari’a country. In other words, Buhari, if he became president, would have to become even more  jihadist than Boko Haram and become their de facto political leader. But will the rest of Nigerians, those who want democracy and loathe Shari’a, put up with that? That means that Buhari will defuse the Boko Haram insurgency only to ignite a much bigger civil war between the Jihadists and the rest of Nigerians. Then the war that’s been confined to the NE zone will be fought everywhere, Muslim against non-Muslim, neighbor against neighbor. If you are a Nigerian and desire that, then Buhari is your man.

But let me sound a warning. Buhari and his Boko Haram supporters would do well to remind themselves that Jihadists have no monopoly on fanaticism. The historical record shows that Christians may be slow to be provoked to a Crusade, but when they finally get going, they are unstoppable. It is then “Onward Christian Soldiers, marching off to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before.” Buhari and his cohorts should recall how, after the routing of the Turkish jihadists on Sept 12, 1683 at the siege of Vienna, the Christian crusaders drove those Jihadists steadily back for centuries till they not only recovered all the lands previously taken in Eastern and Central Europe by the Jihadists, but ended up destroying the Ottoman Caliphate sponsor of that Jihad and, as extra, conquered all the Arab lands, including the Hejaz, by the end of World War I. That relentless push back ended two and half centuries after it began in Vienna. Similarly, in the earlier branch of the Crusades, the one which began after the Arab Jihadist armies were defeated by Charles Martel at Tours/Poitiers, the Christians ended up conquering all the Muslim lands in the world, from Morocco to Mindanao in what became the Philippines.

It is my duty as a historian to remind the world, and all Jihadists in particular, that the drive that, by 1918, culminated in Western Europe’s conquest of the whole world had its remote beginnings in Christian Europe’s response to the Jihadist invasion of Spain, through the Straits of Gibraltar in 711. Some 20 years later, in 732, Charles Martel defeated those invaders of Europe at the battle of Tours/Poitiers, and stopped that jihadist push into Europe. But it was not until 1095, nearly four centuries after the jihadists entered Spain, that Pope Urban II launched the First Crusade. Strengthened by the crusading spirit, the faltering Christian reconquest of Spain from Islam was renewed with determination and ferocity. When, in 1415, the momentum of the Reconquista brought Christian power to Ceuta in North Africa the Reconquista morphed into Western Europe’s enterprise of expansionism that, by 1918, had conquered the whole world, including all of Dar-al-Islam, from Morocco to Mindanao.  That’s a crusading drive that lasted from 1095 to 1918, all of 8 centuries!

On 9/11 Bin Laden’s gang began a fresh jihad against the West. The West has responded with its War on Terror and is still uncertain and divided on how to respond. But it is still early days. When they finally organize a coherent counter-attack, the consequences for Islam could be dire. It could bring about the liquidation of Islam, its total and final extinction from the face of the earth. So these 21st century jihadists should warn themselves.  In particular, Buhari and his Caliphate and Boko Haram cohorts, if they are wise, should desist from provoking in Nigeria the Christian crusader spirit of ‘Onward Christian Soldiers!’


From the examination of the above election issues, can anyone solve the problems of corruption, Boko Haram and the Fulani Militia?  Can Jonathan or Buhari or the APC or the PDP or any other party or candidate?

Because these major problems can be solved only after scrapping the Constitution, the principal election issue becomes the Constitution itself and how to replace it with another that can facilitate solutions to these problems. If we are sensible, this election should be decided by the answer the candidates give to just one question: WHAT’S YOUR PROGRAM FOR REPLACING THE 1999 CONSTITUTION?

Whatever answer he gives, can Buhari replace the constitution? I think not.  Since the prime interest of his Caliphate constituency is to keep its fraudulent fake–democracy constitution in operation and use it to dominate and exploit Nigeria, can you see Buhari honestly proposing or accepting to scrap the Constitution? As he can’t do the key thing — scrap the constitution—that’s required to solve these problems of Nigerians, if you vote for Buhari in the hope that he can and will solve these problems, you are just a mumu who expects a pig to fly. That’s my submission, my argument for asking you to vote against Buhari. Are you a mumu? No? I don’t think you are. But prove it to yourself and the world: go out in your millions and VOTE AGAINST BUHARI.

Knowing how much the Caliphate hates democracy, you should be on alert for Caliphate pro-democracy politricks and conmen. So when a Caliphate man with a track record as a bloody tyrant is put forward by the Caliphate party, APC; and is publicly backed by the Caliphate political leadership in the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, and the Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, you should enjoy their clown show. And when the candidate starts play-acting and posing like a superstar or pop idol of democracy, you should know to also do a playact support for him, like some tell me they are doing at his rallies. But when you step into the polling booth, you stop play-acting, get real, and vote against him. Use your votes to keep this conman Buhari in Daura to enjoy the well-deserved retirement into which IBB sent him in 1985.

If you are not a mumu please spread the word to vote against the Caliphate and its conman Candidate Buhari. Spreading the word to VOTE AGAINST BUHARI is a vital task of public enlightenment today.

Fulani Lebensraum Jihad in Nigeria




What are the killings in Nigeria for?

Who is carrying them out, under what pretexts, and for what actual purpose?

First the short and simple answer and then the explanation.

The Fulani are carrying out a Lebensraum (Living space) Jihad in Nigeria. That’s what the widespread killing is about.

This is the culmination of their escalating ambition in the territory of Nigeria which began with a Jihad in 1804 against the kingdoms of their Hausa hosts.

Who are the Fulani

The Fulani are a nomadic, cattle herding people of unknown origins.   Their last known expansionist base area is the Fouta Jallon Highlands in today’s Guinea Republic. After they, with their cattle, had infiltrated the Fouta Jallon for an undetermined period, they made a Jihad in the 18th century and conquered the country from their indigenous Jallonke hosts. From that base area they have infiltrated the territory of Nigeria and, since 1804, pursued their bloodthirsty ambitions of Jihad, conquest, domination, colonialism and ethnic cleansing against the indigenous peoples who hosted them. That career has now escalated to conquering all of the Nigerian peoples, exterminating them and making their territory a Lebensraum for all the Fulani population in the whole world. A Lebensraum or living space was what Hitler set out to conquer for the Germans in Eastern Europe, a bloody adventure whose Operation Barbarosa, launched in 1941 against the USSR, provoked the Russian counteroffensive that led to the defeat of Germany and Hitler’s suicide in his Berlin bunker.

Here are

The Fulani ambitions in Nigeria, in their own words:

Quotes from Fulani Leaders, 1810-2018

Uthman Dan Fodio, 1810: Convert the pagans and wash their land with blood

“Allah has bestowed on me and my people the historic duty to spread the holy faith of the Prophet throughout the Caliphate and convert these pagans. If they refuse to accept Allah and his Prophet we will wash the earth, the forests, the mountains, the rivers and the streams with their pagan blood. Ours is a holy and righteous calling. We are doing the work of Allah”.

— Sheik Othman Dan Fodio, the father of the Fulani Caliphate and the first Mahdi of Nigeria. (Early 19th century)

Sultan of Sokoto, 1944: One Nigeria only under Islam.

“Those Southerners who desire a United Nigeria should first embrace Islam as their religion.”16

–1944, the Sultan of Sokoto responding to a delegation from the London based West African Students Union (WASU) that paid him a visit to plead for his support for the memorandum on constitutional reform.

–Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Sardauna of Sokoto and Premier of the Northern Region of Nigeria, 1957.



Sardauna, 1960: Nigeria as Dan Fodio’s Estate

The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate of our great-grandfather, Uthman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We use the minorities of the North as willing tools and the South as a conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us, and never allow them to have control over their future.”

Sir Ahmadu Bello, Leader of the Northern People’s Congress (NPC), and Premier of Northern Nigeria, (Parrot Newspaper, 12th Oct. 1960; republished on November 13, 2002, by the Tribune Newspaper, Ibadan.)


Bala N’Allah, 2009: Genocide for 20m Nigerians advocated by Bala N’Allah, a Caliphate legislator

A member of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Bala Ibn N’Allah of Kebbi State. In an unprovoked statement, called for the extermination of 20 million Niger Deltans in order to allow the rest of Nigeria to live in peace. His harrowing words were the following:

“What is happening in the Niger Delta is pure criminality of the highest order, arising from total disregard for constituted authority. In Iraq, thousands of people lost their lives because of an insurrection against the government during the reign of former Iraqi leader, Saddam Hussein. We can do away with 20 million militants for the rest 120 million Nigerians to live.”

(The Guardian, Thursday, May 28, 2009).


Buhari the Self-confessed Jihadist, 2001:

Buhari in 2001 publicly declared his “total commitment to the Sharia movement” in Nigeria:

“I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria” . . . “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country”

Buhari, in 2001, quoted in “Insurgency and Buhari’s call for full Sharia


Gwarzo 2014: Nigeria is Allah’s gift to the Fulani

In 2014, Ismaila Gwarzo, a Fulani and a former National Security Adviser to General Sani Abacha, told the world that “Nigeria is Allah’s gift to the Fulani”.

”When I say that the Presidency must come to the north next year I am referring to the Hausa-Fulani core north and not any northern Christian or Muslim minority tribe.

The Christians in the north such as the Berom, the Tiv, the Kataf, the Jaba, the Zuru, the Sayyawa, the Bachama, the Jukun, the Idoma, the Burra, the Kilba, the Mbula, and all the others are nothing and the Muslim minorities in the north, including the Kanuri, the Nupe, the Igbira, the Babur, the Shuwa Arabs, the Marghur, the Bade, the Bura, the Igalla, the Zerma, the Bariba, the Gbari and all the others know that when we are talking about leadership in the north and in Nigeria, Allah has given it to us, the Hausa-Fulani.

They can grumble, moan and groan as much as they want but each time they go into their bedrooms to meet their wives and each time they get on their prayer mats to begin their prayers, it is we the Fulani that they think of, that they fear, that they bow to and that they pray for. Some of them are even ready to give us their wives and daughters for one nights sport and pleasure. They owe us everything. This is because we gave them Islam through the great Jihad waged by Sheik Uthman Dan Fodio.

We also captured Ilorin, killed their local King and installed our Fulani Emir. We took that ancient town away from the barbarian Yoruba and their filthy pagan gods. We liberated all these places and all these people by imposing Islam on them by force.

It was either the Koran or the sword and most of them chose the Koran. In return for the good works of our forefathers Allah, through the British, gave us Nigeria to rule and to do with as we please.



Dan Bazzau, 2017: The Fulani career of murder with impunity

“If we can imprison Awolowo, killed Ken Saro-Wiwa, murdered Abiola and his wife without Nigeria breaking apart, we are moving to kill Nnamdi Kanu and nothing will happen.”

—Abdulrahman Bello Dambazzau, a Fulani and Nigeria’s current Minister of the Interior, 15 September 2017

FUNAM, 2018: Fulani Lebensraum project

  1. d) That we have asked all Fulani across West Africa to raise money and arms to prosecute the oncoming war. We call on all Fulanis to prepare for this Holy War. There is no going back. All over the world, Nigeria is the only country given to Fulani by God.  
  2. f) That the Cattle Colony is the only solution to the crisis. Whether the Federal Government or State Governments accept or not, we have asked all Fulani herdmen all over West Africa to move to Nigeria and penetrate every corner for the upcoming Jihad. We have asked them to be armed since it seems it is the only language Nigeria understands. . . .
