A former president, Goodluck Jonathan, has repeatedly maintained that it is too early in the day to start discussing the 2023 elections.

According to The Nation, the former president gives such a reply whenever he is asked if he has any plan to contest in the next presidential election.

The publication also reported that the growing rapport between Jonathan and some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is causing anxiety in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The newspaper claimed PDP members are uncomfortable with the frequency of ex-president’s visits to the presidential villa in recent times.

2023: APC chieftains recommend Yahaya Bello, David Umahi for presidency It said the party was puzzled that when the last of such visits occurred on December 15, 2020, neither Jonathan nor the presidency said a word about the purpose of the former president’s visits.

The opposition party was also said to have been disturbed by rumours that APC may consider the former leader for its 2023 presidential ticket.

However, Jonathan has remained silent over his sudden closeness with the ruling party and his speculated 2023 ambition presidential contest.

Meanwhile, two chieftains of the APC have recommended Governor Yahaya Bello and Governor David Umahi as the best politicians to rule Nigeria in 2023.

The recommendations were made by the speaker of Kogi House of Assembly, Mathew Kolawole, and his counterpart in the Ebonyi House of Assembly, Francis Nwifuru. Both men at a political meeting in Ebonyi state argued that Bello and Umahi have the required experience for the presidency.

Exclusive: Nigeria is undergoing the strains of a forced union and should peacefully let people go their separate ways – U.S based lawyer writes to Nigerians:

i will start by making this important points:

British named them Burma. They rejected it, restructured & renamed themselves Myanmar.

-British named them Upper Volta, but they rejected it, restructured and renamed themselves Burkina Faso – Land of Incorruptible People.

-British named them Gold Coast, they rejected it, restructured and renamed themselves Ghana.

-British named them Southern Rhodesia. They rejected it, restructured and renamed themselves Zimbabwe.

-British named them Northern Rhodesia. They rejected it, restructured and renamed themselves Zambia.

-British named them Tanganyika. They rejected it, restructured & renamed themselves Tanzania.

-Germans named them colony of South West Africa. They rejected it, restructured and renamed themselves Namibia.

-France named them Dahomey. They rejected it, restructured and renamed themselves Benin.

-Belgium named them Zaire. However, they rejected it, restructured & renamed themselves Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

-Britain named a bunch of people – Nigeria. They rather kill to preserve it than restructure and give themselves a befitting new name.

“It is only an animal that bears the name that is given to it by his enemy” (Proverb).

THE FUTILITY OF PRESERVING NIGERIA

My angry reaction earlier today on APC UK platform:

Most of the Diasporans here living in Europe. Can you show me one multi-ethnic state in Europe where one group is positioned to dominate the rest that hasn’t broken up?

For those who do not know, what you call ethnic groups in Nigeria are called nations in Europe.

There’s nowhere in the world where the white man accepts domination from another white man in perpetuity.

It used to be so under the Roman empire and the like. Not anymore. The Communists tried it, dividing society into capitalists and proletariats, deluding themselves that ethnicity is effectively swept under the carpet, but what followed? The Communist edifices in Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and the big brother, USSR, all collapsed, while the two Germans that are ethnically the same but split by communism vs capitalism were reunited. Such is the power of ethnic nationalism.

Czechoslovakia was made up of two ethnic groups, the Czech and the Slovakians. Both separated peacefully on 1st January 1993. The former is today 10.6 million people and the latter 5.4 million. Added together, they’re not up to Lagos. Yet, they split for peace. Two masters can’t be in the same house.

Yugoslavia in 1991 was 23.2 million, barely more than Lagos population. It broke into six countries same year – all along ethnic lines, namely: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia.

Then the big brother, USSR. It had, at least, the following ethnic groups identified by their languages:

Regional languages:

Ukrainian

Belarusian

Uzbek

Kazakh

Georgian

Azerbaijani

Lithuanian

Moldavian

Latvian

Kyrgyz

Tajik

Armenian

Turkmen

Estonian

Minority languages:

Abkhaz

Bashkir

Buryat

Chechen

Finnish

Volga German

Korean

Ossetian

Tatar

& various others.

Today, your fingers will not be enough to count the number of countries that have emerged from the USSR.

Sit down there and be preaching unity in Nigeria as if you’re the kindest gentleman on earth while you have no solution to the genocide in Southern Kaduna, the illegal but officially condoned arms in the hands of killer herdsmen roaming the country, and be condemning those better informed about the fact that the country is undergoing the strains of a forced union and should be peacefully restructured or let people go their separate ways.

In Europe, the two best examples of fairly stable multi-ethnic states are the UK and Switzerland. The former is led by reasonable men who permitted regional autonomy to the Irish, the Scots and the Welsh, while the English dominate Westminster. That’s something some of us are asking for, but you’re fighting against it in your own country wracked by ethnic crisis. Your own people are better off under oppression of fellow black men because your people have bad leaders who can’t do better than their new internal colonisers.

The latter country, Switzerland, has four ethnic groups. Each of them rotates the presidency annually through seven cantons that constitute the federation units. All the four languages of the four ethnic groups are recognized as official languages and school languages to boot, namely: German, French, Italian, and Romansch that has just a few thousand speakers!

There’s nowhere in the world where the Caucasians allow the domination of their group by another.

In Canada, Quebec is the only full French-speaking province, aside a little section of New Brunswick. The other seven provinces are English-speaking. Yet, Canada is bilingual for the sake of Quebec! And each of the provinces is largely self-governing.

Here we are in Nigeria, you have people arguing vehemently that a decrepit, structurally-flawed, and crisis-prone artificial contraption badly configured by the British only needs good people to survive. Why not centralise the powers of the British regions to London and see what happens?

the truth , like they say ….is bitter

I rest my case.

New Video: “Campaign and die” -Sunday Igboho threatens Greedy Yoruba politicians in new video: In a new video trending on social media, the self-styled Yoruba warrior, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has threatened to go after politicians of Yoruba extraction who are already campaigning ahead of the 2023 general election.

Mr Igboho issued this threat in a video currently trending on the social media platform, Twitter.

PREMIUM TIMES was not immediately able to ascertain when and where the video was shot. Phone calls and text messages to Mr Igboho and some of his aides have not been responded to as of the time of filing this report.

Our findings, however, shows that the video first appeared online a week ago in a post by Facebook TV, 9ja Searchlight.

‘Campaign and die’
Speaking in the video, Mr Igboho said ”instead of Yoruba politicians to be leading the secession struggle, they are campaigning for the next presidential election”.

“You should know that you are not supposed to seek election to the office of the President, you should identify with our agitation and lead us in the secession struggle,” he said in Yoruba language.

“I will not allow you to campaign because I will kill you all (Yoruba politicians) before (2023) campaigns. I swear to God, we will shoot them with guns from the back.”

He also agitated for an ‘Oduduwa Republic’ in the video saying “Yoruba elders, traditional rulers should lead us to secession war for the independent Oduduwa Republic.

“We need not to be scared because we have enough money to fight. We have crude oil and sea (to export and import goods). We will enjoy most, if we separate. By the time we separate, we will only suffer for less than two weeks only and later enjoy
