Mr. Chinakwe's dog, The sons of Lucifer and the seed of Al Shaitan-Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode, former aviation Minister and former spokesman to the ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has added his voice to the ongoing  case of a man who was arrested for naming his dog after President Muhammadu Buhari.

Read below:
"I won't be surprised if the man arrested for naming his dog Buhari is arraigned before Justice Okon Abang. There is nothing beyond this government"- Mr. Deji Adeyanju, Twitter, 20th August, 2016.
Mr. Adeyanju, who is a young and rising bright star in Nigeria's political firmament, is absolutely right.
When the likes of Mrs. Oby Ezekwezile, the former Minister of Education and a hitherto great supporter and friend of the Buhari administration can publicly proclaim that
"President Buhari does not deserve to be President", then you know that this government has indeed gone beyond the pale, that the meltdown has started and that the corpses are beginning to smell.
Yet nothing is more indicative of the Federal Government's misplaced priorities and more reflective of their total and complete moral degeneration and psychotic paranoia than their behaviour towards the owner of a dog that was named Buhari. Consider the following.
One year and two months ago when President Goodluck Jonathan was still in power, a man named his goat "Goodluck Jonathan".
After doing so he took a picture of himself with the goat and proceeded to splash it all over Facebook and Twitter.
As insulting and provocative as this was, no-one in government raised an eyebrow and neither did President Jonathan take it in bad faith.
Again one year and two months ago whilst he was still in power President Goodluck Jonathan was maligned, misrepresented and labelled as being "clueless", "weak" and "incompetent" by many.
We took advantage of his meekness, decency, sense of restraint and humility and we took the basic freedoms that he gave us for granted. It didn't stop there.
On several occasions during the course of the 2015 presidential election campaign he was stoned in parts of the core north by violent groups of hungry-looking and thuggish almajiris whilst the First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, was unfairly and cruelly portrayed as an illiterate, a drama queen, a clown and somethiing akin to a female court jester.

She was even referred to as a "hipoppotomos" by no less a person than our Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka whilst Jonathan himself was described as "a pig" by Mr. Japhet Omojuwa, a young and dynamic blogger and political commentator.
Yet despite all these unwarranted, crude and provocative insults the President did not lose his cool, the heavens did not fall and his government did not query, warn, threaten or arrest anyone.
One year and two months later things appear to be very different. Permit me to explain. A few days ago a man who named his dog "Buhari" was promptly arrested by the police and remanded in custody. His name is Joachim Chinakwe and he lives in Ogun state.
The police told members of an incredulous public that they took and kept Mr. Chinakwe in custody "for his own safety" and that they intended to arraign him in a court of law in a matter of days for having the effontry to name his dog "Buhari".
According to them, giving his dog that name was a provocative act that could have lead to an ethnic and religious conflict because Mr. Chinakwe's neighbours were Hausa-Fulani.
Apparantly those neighbours were not too happy with the name that he had given to the dog, in view of the fact that our President shares the same name, and therefore they threatened to kill him for it.
As far as I am aware this is the first time in the history of our country that anyone has been arrested simply because his dog shares the same name as our President.
It is also the first time that the victim of a serious crime and an individual whose life was threatened ended up being thrown behind bars whilst those that threatened to take that life ended up being the complainants in the case.
And all this because of a poor dog named Buhari which, we are told, had to be quietly put down and sent to the great beyond by its owner so that it couldn't be used as evidence against him in court!
The whole episode sounds like a second rate Hollywood script but sadly it really happened. I guess that is "Mai Chanji" for you.
Yet examples of the startling contrasts that exist between the Jonathan era and the one that we are in today refuse to abate.
Things have got so bad in this country that Mr. Ebube, a regular and increasingly influential commentator on Twitter, posted the following words on his handle yesterday. He wrote,

"Under this misfortune called APC people are arrested for writing about EFCC, naming a dog and criticising a governor".
I guess that is Mai Chanji for you.
When one considers the economic situation things are even worse. Mr. Oshioke Audu, a public commentator, put it well when he posted the following words on Facebook. He wrote,
"Twenty years ago the South African economy was 7.5 times the size of the Nigerian one. At the end of 2012 the South African economy was only 1.4 times the size of the Nigerian one. By 2014 Nigeria officially became Africa's number one economy and the 23rd in the world. Then the APC took over with inept Buhari in 2015. By 2016, Nigeria is now the 40th world economy and the third in Africa".
What a tragedy! Yet no-one captures it better than a young and courageous politician from Anambra state by the name of Prince Henry Nwazuruahu Shield who wrote the following on Facbook:
"Recession does not speak politics. It is simply a result of one man's ignorance about the management of the economy. A robust economy benefits both APC supporters and PDP's. We need to agree that Buhari is the SOLE problem of Nigeria".
This insightful young man has hit the nail on the head.

Permit me to conclude this contribution by touching on a matter that has brought many of us in the Christian community immense sorrow.
Southern Kaduna is on fire and its people are being slaughtered on a daily basis by blood-sucking Fulani herdsmen. Despite this the Federal Government has done nothing to abate it or to bring the perpertrators to justice.
The truth is that those that commit these heinous crimes and their powerful rich friends that secretly buy them arms and that covertly encourage, protect and support them are nothing but the sons of Lucifer: they are the seed of Al Shaitan.
Pastor Luka Ubangari was one of their latest victims. His cold-blooded murder in southern Kaduna a few days ago by Fulani militants together with the slaying of Pastor Eunice Elisha by muslim fundamentalists in Kubwa, Abuja a few weeks back means that in the last 3 months no less than two Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastors have been butchered by islamist terrorists in northern Nigeria.
The government's slow response, irresponsible attitude and inexplicable refusal to clamp down on them has furthrr emboldened the Fulani terrorists and militants. This is dangerous and unacceptable.
The matter is simple: if the government does not do something fast to stem the tide of violence and provocative acts of terror, self-help and self-defence will be the only recourse left for those that are being subjected to genocide and ethnic cleansing.
I hope that Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye and Vice President (Pastor) Yemi Osibajo, both of RCCG, both of whom I have immense respect and affection for, are taking note of this gruesome and tragic horror movie as it unfolds.
I hope that they are also taking note of the body count of Pastors and believers that is slowly building up.
Ditto my friend and brother Pastor Tunde Bakare of Latter Reign Assembly and Pastor Kumuyi of Deeper Life, both of whom have expressed their support for President Buhari in the last few days in spite of the sheer carnage that members of their wider flock and Christian brothers and sisters are being subjected to all over the country on a daily basis by the President's kinsmen.
Things have got so bad in this respect that Mr. Babatunde O. Gbadamosi, a Lagos-based businessman and social commentator, accurately reflected the mood of the nation and the growing anger when he wrote the following words on Facebook. He said,
"Buhari is condoning organised genocide in Nigeria. And Nigerians are too scared to speak out".

The latest development is that eight Christian polytechnic students were burnt alive in Zamfara state for allegedly making "blasphemous comments" against Prophet Mohammed. Clearly the madness is spreading.
I hate to say "I told you so" but I guess that we all have to live with the consequences of the choices that we make. That is "mai chanji".
Those amongst us that are still "too scared to speak out" and that live in a state of perpetual bondage and fear have much to learn from the words of Alexander the Great, one of the greatest kings and warriors that ever lived. He said "conquer your fears and you will live forever!"
The people of Nigeria have much to learn from those words.
May He that rules in the affairs of Heaven and earth and who holds the universe together by the power of His word arise in defence of His children.
May the souls of the servants of the Living God and Christian believers that were cut short by the agents of the evil one in the last few days and weeks rest in peace.
May the Lord God of Hosts, the Ancient of Days, the Man of War, the Seven-fold Spirit of the Living God and He that holds the four winds of the earth in the palm of His hand avenge them speedily.

Ogbonaya Onu rejects N29 million exotic car gift from Governor Umahi

Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu has rejected a Lexus Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) given to him by the Ebonyi State Governor, Chief David Umahi, as an elder statesman of the state.

Mr. Onu is the second personality after the immediate past governor, chief martin Elechi to reject exotic car gifts which cost N29 million each distributed to former Governors Sam Egwu and Martin Elechi and erstwhile Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim. A total of which stand at N116 million.

The minister, in a letter  dated August 16, 2016, entitled: “Re-state recognition for an elder statesman”instead asked the governor to pay him his pension entitlements, rather than car gift.

Citing copiously from the constitution, Mr. Onu ‎regretted the fact that the Ebonyi State House of Assembly in 2011 amended a law  just to technically exclude him from his constitutional benefit as a former governor of old Abia State.
he said,
I regret to inform Your Excellency that I cannot accept the gift of a Lexus Sport Utility Vehicle as conveyed in the letter under reference. I do so with a deep sense of responsibility and conscious of the important need to build a better Ebonyi State where respect for the rule of law and the peoples’ will as well as the pursuit of their happiness will remain sacred.”
It is important that I draw your attention to provision of Section 124(5) of the 1999 constitution as amended which states that:
Provisions may be made a law of a House of Assembly for the provision of person to or in respect of a person who has held the office of a governor or deputy governor and was not removed from office as a result of impeachment and any pension granted by virtue of any provision made in pursuance of the subsection shall be a charge upon the consolidated revenue fund of the state.”
 “Instructively, a law enacted by the Ebonyi State House of Assembly titled: Ebonyi State Special Offices Pensions and Related Matters Law 2007, section 3 defined a Governor as a ‘Civilian Governor of or from Ebonyi State of Nigeria'.
Rather curiously, four years later, the same House of Assembly enacted the ‘Ebonyi State Specified Offices Pensions and Related Matters (Amendement) Law 2011’ wherein a governor was defined as: a civilian governor of Ebonyi State of Nigeria.
It is clear from the foregoing, Your Excellency, that I was the target of this scheme in an apparent design to deny me my due pension entitlements. This is especially so in the circumstance where it is the responsibility of the Ebonyi State Government to do so as a consequence of the sharing of assets and liabilities between Abia and Ebonyi states.
You will recall that I had served as the first elected governor of Abia State, in which a part later became a constituent part of Ebonyi State.
He, therefore, implored Governor Umahi to initiate steps aimed at addressing and correcting the contradictions in the overall interest of fairness, justice and respect for the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Laws are not made to suit personal prejudices. Laws are made to serve the enduring attributes of good conscience, honour and equity.
 The letter concluded.
 Mr. Onu was the first Executive Governor of Abia State, Nigeria from February 1992 to December 1993 part of which later became Ebonyi State today.
 The SUV was also rejected by Mr. Elechi, who also wrote to the governor returning the car.

man arrested for naming his dog after Buhari

The Ogun state police command has arrested a 30-year-old trader named Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, for naming his pet dog ‘Buhari'. According to Vanguard Joe was arrested after a neighbour who is from the North, filed a complaint at Sango Police Station, that Joe named his dog after his father, Alhaji Buhari.

However, it was gathered that efforts by the police to recover the dog, which they intended using as evidence failed following a much clever move by the suspect who allegedly instructed his friends secretly to kill the dog. All appeals by his friends and relations for the police to grant him bail failed as the complainant and his kinsmen reportedly threatened to kill the trader if the police happened to released him on bail.

A relation to the suspect who simply identified self as Chiedozie told Vanguard :

 “Chinakwe is a lover of dogs and he names them after things that tickle him. He bought this dog a year ago and named it Buhari.  Unfortunately, some Northerners, who dominate the vicinity where he resides misconstrued his intention and connived to take him up. The complainant then claimed it was derogatory because his father answers Buhari.” He further expressed fears that he may either be poisoned inside a police cell or thrown into jail.

The acting Police spokesman in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, ASP, stated that indeed Joe bought a dog, but he inscribed Buhari on both sides of the dog's body and paraded the dog around the area.

"One Mallam lodged a complaint and when our men got there, we found out that it was true. You know such thing can cause serious breach of the peace and ethnic or religious unrest. We are charging him to court for conduct likely to cause a breach of peace.”
