Yes, The Seven PDP Rebel Governors are 'Democrats'.


I have kept tabs on the movement of five (5) of the 'democrat' rebel PDP governors since the 23r of May 2013. They have spent more time outside their various states where they are supposed to govern as governors than in those states. They have literally moved their offices and houses to Abuja.

The democrat rebel governors in question are: Murtala Nyako (Adamawa) Babangida Aliyu (Niger), Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano), Sule Lamido (Jigawa) and Magatakarda Wamako (Sokoto).

Shortly after the botched Nigeria governors' forum election on the 24th of May 2013, the above named governors have literally and apparently relocated to Abuja.

Since that 24th of May 2013, these five nasty governors have become a clog in the wheel of Nigerian democracy. They have virtually absent themselves from their duty posts without leave. But their various Houses of Assembly cannot dream of impeaching them because all the House members are their boys.

For four months now, they have abandoned their duty posts in Kano, Yola, Sokoto, Minna and Dutse and have been pursuing their selfish self-aggrandisement.  From Abuja, they have travelled to Abeokuta, Port Harcourt, Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu, Owerri, Benin, Sokoto, Minna, Kano, Kaduna, Maiduguri, Ilorin, Makurdi amongst other places  I call remember now. The entire above frolic at the tax payers' expense and from their various states coffers. Yet they are demanding that the EFCC should not investigate them! Thieving governors they are.

This morning I was just thinking to myself, if President Goodluck Jonathan will just leave Abuja Nigeria to go and disturb the peace of John Mahama of Ghana for four months.

The mere fact that these rebel governors can abandon their various states for four months is a clear indication that they have nothing to offer Nigeria. They have devoted their states resources to pursuing the 2015 presidential election which is about two years away.

From that 24th May, they have visited virtually all living Nigerians above
60 years including well known enemies of democracy who annulled the June 12, 1993 election.

They have lied, cajoled, blackmailed, enticed and played all the tricks in their kitty to dissuade Dr Goodluck Jonathan not to contest the 2015 presidential election.  Yet it has not worked.

The five governors mentioned above are fraudulent persons.  Let it be made clear to them that even if heavens will fall, President Goodluck Jonathan will and shall contest the 2015 presidential election and will surely win with landslide and in fact moon slide victory.  With due respect to Umaru Dikko of the NPN days please.

Nigeria belongs to all Nigerians.  Why is it that whenever a Southerner is the President of Nigeria, the Northerners will be agitating for power to rotate to the North?  But once a Northerner is the President or Head of State, no more agitation.  It happened during Obasanjo's time and is now happening during Jonathan's time. The North does not need power now. Let them tackle Bokom Haram first. President Goodluck Jonathan must finish his constitutionally permitted two terms of eight years by 2019.

Back to the seven rebel and unserious governors. They are making their case worst every day.  Their various states Houses of Assembly must initiate impeachment proceedings against them immediately. Some of them shamelessly want their children to succeed them as governors. Murtala Nyako and Sule Lamido want their sons to succeed them as governors. Yet they claim to be democrats.

As for Rotimi Amaechi, I am really disappointed but not surprised that he still wants to play the second fiddle despite the fact he has the oil that sustains Nigeria. By now I thought he will be proud of his kinsman Dr Goodluck Jonathan being the President of Nigeria.

If he does not know, please can his press secretary go to the library and get him the Parrot Newspaper of 12th October 1960.

In fact let me make the job easier for him. Here is the famous statement made by Late Sir Ahmadu Bello as was reported in the Parrot Newspaper; 'This 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 in the North as willing tools, and the South, as conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us, and never allow them to have control over their future.'  —Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sardauna of Sokoto in THE PARROT of October 12, 1960.

Mr Rotimi Amaechi sir, man proposes but God disposes. God in his infinite mercies have disposed off with the above statement by Ahmadu Bello.

Please don't take us back 60yrs ago. You have all it takes to President.
You are even more educated than Sule Lamido anyway.

Finally the seven rebel PDP governors are never democrats at all. They are anti-democracy tyrants who want to destabilise our nascent democracy for their selfish reasons.

Let them know that the only alternatively to President Goodluck Jonathan in
2015 is no Nigeria. Shekenan!
