Ex President OBJ changing lane, Bishop Oyedepo opening the gate of hell: Cause for celebrations

Ex President OBJ defection to APC is a predictable one. Anyone who has been following the drama of Nigeria politics would not be surprised that given the old man, did not succeed in having his way with GEJ would eventually lead him to leaving PDP.

Not about anyone of us, more about power struggle.

After all Baba Iyabo is a Yoruba man, Kaka ki Kiniun s’akapo ekun, olode a lo lototo –  instead of a tiger to be custodian for a lion, they’d rather hunt independently.

No one is fooled by the defection, if OBJ was allowed, we would have had our very own Mugabe. GEJ being where he is today was not without GEJ firm support. He was the one that made Yar’Adua presidency possible despite knowledge of his health condition – shame on all of them for playing politics with the well-being of Nigerians.

I believe every word that Iyabo Obasanjo said about her father “We, your family, have borne the brunt of your direct cruelty and also suffered the consequences of your stupidity but got none of the benefits of your successes. Of course, anyone around you knows how little respect you have for your children.”

Now, the exciting bits for Nigerians:

Whether we care to admit it or not, religion plays a major role in Nigeria politics and for the most part not at all positive one – It is a cycle of repeated mediocre being allowed to rule us in the name of Jesus Christ or Mohammed in the case of the northern folks.

Words thrown back and forth with Bishop Oyedepo and ex-president is exciting – believe it or not, something great is going to come out of this. Just pray it continues.

For one, Nigeria celebrity pastors such as Oyedepo are untouchable, they communicate directly with God above on behalf of millions of Nigerians who can not afford to send their children to the church’s private universities but listened to this guy telling them GEJ is the God chosen.

Oyedepo knows his ‘onions’ after all he was one of the ‘holy’ men that accompanied GEJ to the Wailing Wall of Jerusalem, and he is not about to bite the fingers that fund his private unis.

GEJ resent visit to Oyedepo’s church is expected. What I don’t get was Oyedepo’s saying Gate of Hell would be released on people who did not vote Jonathan, Really?

What do you call what the folks in the north-east experiencing now, Gate of Heaven?

Get a grip, we know all your tactics, Nigeria is already going through hell and no one is scared by you swearing. Actually, Yoruba swear much more than praying!

Oyedepo is not alone on this, GEJ has already captured the heart of Adeboye of the Redeemed Church, and the other bling, bling guy of Warri.

It’s unfortunate that folks are having a go at one another defending Oyedepo and OBJ while we should really be rejoicing that finally someone, who by the way not a saint, has decided to tell the truth for once.

Like many of our many ex leaders, OBJ must do many more to earn any credit, calling a shot on Bishop Oyedepo is a good start.

I can’t wait to see another top dog from within the same circle to put all these religious maniacs in their places.

Does this make Gen. Buhari a saint and the saviour we’ve been waiting for? Not in the least. He is the best we’ve got among the two imposed on us, but must earn the respect of Nigerians.

Until then…

  1. Another reason to vote FK for President. Hugs

    Yes it’s religion and true it is a sensitive issue (which I won’t talk about either) and when I decide to call a spade a spade I will give you a tale my grandma or some grandma told me and you will easily relate like the one on the ‘Elephants’. 🙂

    Agreeing to the world being a better place if we can all see that we can disagree and still live in peace. Actually have informed and forward-thinking converstaions on any matter without resorting to violence.

    Even the Bible says “WATCH & PRAY”…some of us just Pray and no Watching. LOL.

    And yes I suspect this part of your tory “and don’t believe we should continue in the same path that hasn’t yield any positive outcome”…. but no comments.

  2. I’m trying not to comment on this post as I see we have different opinion on some matters. Well, like you know, everyone is entitled to his opinion as I am to my choice(s). But one thing is clear, I’m not voting for who wants war at all case. Now I’m suspecting you if you will even go to the voting booths at all.
    Till then, FK for President!

    • Ha! Sincerely I think many more youths need to adopt this mindset – not to shy away from talking about issues that affect us all, thank you!

      This is the beauty of it all, that we can disagree on some viewpoints, actually I think it is beautiful that way especially when most of us are so far away from decision making bodies – we make our speculations based on what is presented and the reality on ground.

      We just have to agree enough to realise the injustice and lawlessness of our society is affecting us all, through honest exchanges, we may be able to see clearly how we could all have the last laugh.

      Religious talks in Nigeria is a sensitive one – many of the things happening in the church are nothing to write home about.

      Now not sure which part we disagree on however, I believe most Nigerians will agree war is not the way out. Having said that I am a realist I don’t believe prayers alone will sort us out, not in the least and don’t believe we should continue in the same path that hasn’t yield any positive outcome.
