THANKS TO EVERY ONE IN OUR COUNTRY NIGERIA FOR THEIR STRONG SUPPORT THROUGH MY PHENOMINAL MUSICAL JOURNEY BECAUSE WITHOUT THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE A VOICE THROUGH WHICH THEY ALSO SPEAK. THOSE THAT HAVE FOLLOWED MY MUSIC FROM THE 80’S TILL NOW CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I AM SPENDING ALL THESE YEARS FIGHTING THROUGH MUSIC AS MY FAMILY AND I HAVE SUFFERED GREATLY BY THE SYSTEM JUST LIKE OTHER EVERY DAY PEOPLE IN NIGERIA. AS I REALIZE THAT MY TALENT IS NOT A PRIVILEGE BUT A GIFT TO BE USED FOR THE BENEFIT OF MANKIND I ALSO KNOW THAT GREATER POWER COMES WITH GREATER RESPONSIBLITY AND SO I HAVE STOOD WITH ALL OF OUR PEOPLE IN THE NATION OF NIGERIA TO FIGHT AGAINST THE SYSTEM THAT CONTINIOUSLY KEEPS OUR PEOPLE DOWN. HOWEVER, THE LAST STRAW THAT HAS BROKEN THE CAMEL’S BACK WAS AFTER I TRAVELLED AROUND THE COUNTRY TO CAMPAIGN WITH MKO ABIOLA DURING THE NIGERIAN 1993 GENERAL ELECTION DUBBED “HOPE 93” IN WHICH ABIOLA RAN AN INCREDIBLE CAMPAIGN GIVING HOPE TO THE COMMON PEOPLE. OUR PEOPLE RESPONDED IMMENSELY AND OVERWHELMINGLY BY VOTING FOR MKO ABIOLA UNANIMOUSLY. THIS WAS AN ELECTION LIKE NO OTHER. THE ONLY TIME NIGERIA AS A COUNTRY EVER VOTED FROM NORTH TO SOUTH EAST TO WEST TO CHOOSE A PRESIDENT OF THEIR CHOICE, AND THE ONLY TIME ELECTION WOULD BE SAID TO BE FREE AND TRULY FAIR WAS THE 1993 ELECTION.I CLOSELY FOLLOWED THE ELECTION AS WE ALL BELIEVED IN MKO AND THE HOPE THAT HE BROUGHT TO THE SUFFERING PEOPLE OF NIGERIA. I KNOW HE WAS NOT A SAINT BUT HE WAS COMPASSIONATE TOWARDS OUR PEOPLE AND HE WAS WILLING TO MAKE A CHANGE. MKO ABIOLA WAS NOT VOTED FOR BECAUSE HE WAS GOING TO SOLVE ALL OUR PROBLEMS, BUT BECAUSE WE ALL TRULY SAW IN HIM THAT HE WAS GOING TO HELP POINT OUR COUNTRY IN A NEW DIRECTION AS HE HAD SINGLE HANDEDLY CHANGED THE FACE OF SPORTS IN NIGERIA AND AFRICA. HE WAS A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS MAN AND PHILANTHROPIST THAT HELPED ALL NIGERIANS REGARDLESS OF THEIR TRIBE, CREED, RELIGION, AND CLASS. HE BRIDGED THE ETHNIC GAP. WE ALL SAW HIM AS A UNITER. WE ALL KNEW HIM. WE KNEW THAT HE COULD SERVE HIS PEOPLE. HE WAS NOT BROUGHT INTO THE RACE BY THE GOD FATHER. EVERY ONE OF US KNEW HIM. WE FELT LIKE HE WAS TRULY ONE OF THE SUFFERERS REGARDLESS OF HIS WEALTH OR POSITION AND HE WAS ONE OF US. WE KNEW HIS HISTORY. THOSE WHO HATED THE COUNTRY SO BADLY AND WANTED NIGERIANS TO BE IN PERMANENT CAPTIVITY TOOK HIM AWAY. TODAY, ALL WE SEE IS A MAN ON TELEVISION BEING ANOUNCED AS A PRESIDENT AND AS A GOVERNOR YET WE ONLY KNOW HIS NAME AS THEY TOLD IT TO US. WE DO NOT KNOW THEIR HISTORY, CHARACTER, CREDIBILITY OR BELIEFS AND WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN THEY EVEN RAN FOR THE ELECTION THAT THEY WERE ANOUNCED TO HAVE WON. ABIOLA WAS A TRUE BROTHER TO THE BROTHERLESS, A TRUE FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS, AND A FRIEND TO THE FRIENDLESS. BUT BABANGIDA, KNOWING THAT IF THE ELECTION USHERED IN MKO ABIOLA THEN CHANGES WOULD COME TO THE COUNTRY AND THAT WOULD BRING THE BEGINNING OF THE END TO THE ERA OF MEGA CORRUPTION, OPPRESSION, AND INJUSTICE, AND BRING TRUE DEVELOPMENT TO THE COUNTRY.BABANGIDA COMMITED THE WORST CRIME AGAINST OUR NATION AND ITS PEOPLE DESTROYING HOPE 93’ BY ANNULLING THE ELECTION AND UNJUSTLY ROBBING ALL NIGERIAN’S OF THEIR RIGHTS. IT WAS AT THIS POINT, 19 YEARS AGO LAST MONTH JUNE 2012, THAT I HAD TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY AS THE FEELING OF HELPLESSNESS OVERWHELMED ME BUT I DID NOT DESERT THE COUNTRY. THIS WAS THE SAME FEELING I HAD WHEN I WAS JUST A CHILD, DURING THE NIGERIAN-BIAFRAN CIVIL WAR, AS THE NIGERIAN SOLDIERS CAME INTO MY FATHER’S HOUSE AND KILLED MY UNCLE, KILLED MY SISTER, SHOT MY MOTHER, STABBED AND SHOT MY FATHER, WHILE THE NIGERIAN SOLDIERS ALSO KILLED A SECOND UNCLE IN ANOTHER PLACE. I WAS THROWN INTO THE COLDNESS OF THE WORLD. THIS GRIEF AND ANGER I HAVE CARRIED WITH ME ALL MY LIFE FEELING LET DOWN BY A COUNTRY THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO DO RIGHT BY ITS PEOPLE AND PROTECT THEM. GOD HAS HELPED TO TURN ALL THAT NEGATIVITY SEEN AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE INTO POSITIVITY THROUGH MUSIC. I WAS SAVED BY GOD IN THAT NO BULLETS FLYING IN THE AIR FOUND THEIR MARK ON MY OWN SKIN. THAT IS WHY I MADE A PROMISE TO GOD THAT I WILL STAND UP FOR OTHERS ALL THE REST OF MY LIFE FOR I WOULD NOT WANT ANY ONE TO SUFFER WHAT I AND MY FAMILY HAVE SUFFERED. I KNOW SO MANY OTHER NIGERIANS SUFFERED SIMILAR THINGS IN THEIR OWN PLACES ALL BECAUSE GENERAL YAKUBU GOWON, THE THEN ARMY HEAD OF STATE, REFUSED TO HONOR THE TREATY THEY HAD IN ABURI, GHANA, PER THE RESOURCE CONTROL AND SO OUR LEADERS ALWAYS REFUSED TO BE JUST. WATCHING MY PARENTS AND FAMILY SUFFER AND DIE WAS THE SAME FEELING I HAD IN THE 93 ELECTION WHERE I WAS HELPLESS AND COULD DO NOTHING TO RESCUE THE PEOPLE FROM THE HANDS OF THE WICKED.

WHY SHOULD THIS HAPPEN TO ANY CITIZEN? ISN’T THE DUTY OF THE GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT ITS CITIZENS AND DEFEND THE LAND? WHILE THE WHOLE COUNTRY FOLDED THEIR HANDS AND WATCHED, MKO ABIOLA STOOD HIS GROUND AND REFUSED TO DENOUNCE THE MANDATE THAT WAS GIVEN TO HIM BY THE PEOPLE UNTIL AT LAST HE WAS MURDERED BY GENERAL ABUBAKER AND HIS TERRORIST GROUP WHO CAME IN AFTER THE DEATH OF ABACHA. NO ONE DID A THING. BUT LET ME TELL YOU TODAY, WHAT BABANGIDA WANTED HAS NOW TAKEN HOLD IN THE COUNTRY, A TOTAL OUTLAW, CORRUPT, OPPRESSIVE, UNSAFE, MISERABLE, CRIMINALIZED, AND UNJUST SOCIETY.

BABANGIDA IS STILL FREE. HOW WOULD OTHERS NOT DO WORSE THINGS THAN WHAT HE HAS DONE SAYING THAT AFTER ALL NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN TO THEM? IT WAS DURING THE BABANGIDA ERA THAT DELE GIWA WAS BRUTALLY MURDERED, GENERAL MAMAN VITSA AND OTHER OFFICERS WERE ALSO FRAMED UP AND MURDERED, AND IT WAS DURING BABANGIDA’S ERA THAT ALL YOUNG BRILIANT NIGERIAN ARMY OFFICERS WERE ALL BLOWN AWAY AND BRUTALLY MURDERED ON THE NIGERIAN AIR FORCE PLANE FOR THE FEAR THAT THEY MIGHT CHALLENGE THE THEN EXISTING ILLEGAL GOVERNMENT OF GUNS AND MADNESS AS THE OFFICERS WERE LEAVING TO SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE. A LOT OF BLOOD HAS BEEN SPILLED IN OUR COUNTRY AND THOSE WHO SPILLED THE BLOOD HAVE CREATED AN EXTENDED FAMILY THAT HAS CARRIED ON WITH THE BLOOD SHED WHICH IS ABOUT TO PUT AN END TO OUR COUNTRY’S EXISTENCE.  SO MANY MORE DEATHS WERE CAUSED BY THIS ONE MAN, BABANGIDA. I KNOW THE HISTORY OF MY COUNTRY. IF YOU, YOURSELF, DO NOT KNOW THE HISTORY OF NIGERIA THEN YOU ARE LIKE A TREE WITHOUT ITS ROOTS. SO IF THEY WISH TO KILL ME BECAUSE I SPEAK, THEY SHOULD WAIT TO DO SO WHEN THEY SEE ME BECAUSE I WILL NOT RUN AWAY FROM MY COUNTRY AND NEITHER WILL I LEAVE ASHORE. EVEN THOUGH I LIVE IN A FREE WORLD WHERE THERE IS JUSTICE AND TRUE DEMOCRACY I AM ALWAYS HOME TO CRY, TO MOURN, TO STRUGGLE, TO SUFFER WITH ALL MY PEOPLE. THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN ME THE PAST YEARS CAN TESTIFY TO THAT.

ABACHA MURDERED KEN SAROWIWA FOR STANDING UP TO FIGHT FOR THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE AND IF MOST HIGH GOD DID NOT JUDGE ABACHA CAN ANYBODY SAY WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TODAY? EVERYBODY WOULD STILL ONLY FOLD THEIR HANDS AND WATCH. BUT I SAY TO ALL THE OPPRESSORS THAT THEY CAN KILL A REVOLUTIONARY BUT THEY CAN NEVER KILL THE REVOLUTION. A DAY IS COMING THAT THEY WILL ALL PAY, SOONER OR LATER. THEN OBASENJO AND CO. CAME AND FORMED A GANG OF CONMEN, THIEVES, AND MURDERERS CALLED THE PDP PARTY, TO ROB THE NATION AND ITS PEOPLE BLIND IN HIS SECOND TIME AS A RULER OF NIGERIA.

WE BRIEFLY HAD THE LATE PRESIDENT YAR’ADUA IN WHOM PEOPLE ALSO HAD HOPE BUT HIS TENURE WAS CUT SHORT DUE TO HIS DEATH AND WHO KNOWS IF THE PEOPLE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION GANGED TOGETHER TO HASTEN HIS DEATH AS HE WAS ALREADY NICKNAMED, DUE PROCESS, BECAUSE HE BELIEVED IN THE RULES OF LAW AND WANTED DUE PROCESS IN OUR COUNTRY NIGERIA, EVEN THOUGH THE PROCESS THAT BROUGHT HIM IN WAS CORRUPT AND HE CONFESSED IT AND PROMISED TO BRING A REFORM WHICH HE STARTED BUT IS NOW THWARTED BY PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN. PRESIDENT YAR’ ADUA’S VICE-PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN, A STOOG, TOOK OVER AND REVERSED OUR COUNTRY TO A CULTURE OF STEAL, KILL, AND DESTROY. THE WORST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY IS NOW AS WE WATCH PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN AND THE RULING PDP PARTY BECOME THE JUDICIARY, THE INDEPENDENT NATIONAL ELECTORAL COMMISSION, THE PRESIDENCY, AND ALL OTHER BRANCHES OF THE GOVERNMENT HOLDING THE COUNTRY HOSTAGE. GOODLUCK JONATHAN AND THE PDP PARTY ARE CREATING A TOTAL TAKE OVER OF THE NATION AND THE PEOPLE’S RIGHTS FORCING THEIRSELVES ON THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY IN AN ATTEMPT TO PERMANENTLY TURN NIGERIA INTO A ONE PARTY STATE WITH SO MUCH INSECURITY, UNEMPLOYMENT, INJUSTICE, OPPRESSION, DISUNITY, ETHNIC POLITICS, AND LACK OF DEVELOPMENT, EXCEPT IN A VERY FEW OPPOSITION PARTY STATES, SO MUCH SO IN ALL ASPECTS OF THE NATION AS HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE.

GOODLUCK JONATHAN’S ADMINISTRATION HAS ADOPTED THE BULLYING AND SHOUT DOWN TACTICS AND DEMONIZING THOSE WHO ARE SPEAKING OUT – TRYING TO AVERT THE LOOMING CRISES THAT IS FACING THE NATION – IN ORDER TO BRING ABOUT THE RULING PDP PARTY’S PLAN TO RULE THE COUNTRY FOR 60 YEARS IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE SURE IN EVERY ELECTION THEY WILL MANIPULATE, RIG, CHASE, INTIMIDATE, HARRASS, AND UNJUSTLY ARREST THE OPPONENTS AND MAKE SURE THAT THERE WILL BE NO RULES OF LAW IN THE COUNTRY. GOODLUCK JONATHAN AND HIS ADMINISTRATION WOULD HAVE IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND THE SENATE, ONLY MEMBERS OF THE PDP AND SO TURN NIGERIA INTO AN OPEN PRISON TO ALL NIGERIANS WHO BASICALLY WOULD NOT HAVE ANY RIGHTS OR A SAY IN ANYTHING THAT AFFECTS THEM AND THEIR FAMILY.

WHEN YOU WATCH AND LISTEN TO THE TAPE (http://youtu.be/U1gu0UTAH1E) IN WHICH JUSTICE FOR AKWA IBOM ORGANIZATION CAUGHT AKPABIO IN THE BRIBERY UNDERCOVER VIDEO YOU WILL HEAR WHAT AKPABIO SAID ABOUT THE PDP PLANS TO MAKE SURE THAT NO PERSON WOULD FIND JUSTICE AS THE PDP HAVE MADE PLANS TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL NIGERIANS ARE CORNERED AND EVERY ASPECT OF THE RULES OF LAW AND A FAIR HEARING ARE TAKEN AWAY FROM ALL PEOPLE OF THE NATION OF NIGERIA. MY QUESTION IS WHY ARE ALMOST 180 MILLION PEOPLE SITTING DOWN WATCHING A SMALL GROUP OF ARMED ROBBERS TERRORIZE THEM AND HOLD THEM CAPTIVE? LET’S BE HONEST ABOUT THE SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY OF NIGERIA BY ACCEPTING THE FACT THAT THIS PRESENT GOVERNMENT IS INCAPABLE OF ADDRESSING THE NATION’S PROBLEMS, BUT RATHER ARE MAKING MATTERS WORSE AND WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO BRING THE SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY UNDER CONTROL. ALL OF THEM, AS IN THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT, ARE CORRUPT JUST LIKE ALMOST ALL OF NIGERIA’S PAST GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN CORRUPT BUT THIS ONE IS THE WORST, AND THAT IS WHY ALL THE PEOPLE CAUGHT IN THE CORRUPTION SCANDAL WILL NEVER BE BROUGHT TO BOOK AND ALL THE ELECTION PETITIONS FILED ARE STRUCK OUT. FOR EXAMPLE, SENATOR JOHN JAMES AKPAN UDOEDEHE OF AKWA IBOM STATE, THE ACN PARTY FLAGBEARER AND WINNER OF THE 2011 GOVERNATORIAL ELECTION, VERSUS GOVERNOR GODSWILL AKPABIO; THE CASE OF BENUE STATE; AND ALL OTHER CASES IN THE COUNTRY. IN ADDITION, IN THE FORGERY CASE OF ENGINEER FRANK OKON OF AKWA IBOM STATE VERSUS THE CORRUPT AND MURDEROUS GOVERNOR AKPABIO, A CLEAR CASE IN WHICH THE GOVERNOR, INEC, AND THE PDP COMMITED FORGERY AND ALSO VIOLATED A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT OF ANOTHER CITIZEN ENG. FRANK OKON, THE WORLD HAS SEEN HOW THE NIGERIAN JUDICIARY, THE PRESIDING JUDGE JUSTICE KAFARATI, AKPABIO, THE PDP, AND THE PRESIDENCY ARE TRYING TO SUPPRESS THE CASE IN TRYING TO DENY JUSTICE AND A FAIR HEARING SO THEY CAN THROW OUT THIS CASE AND BLAME IT ON STATUTE.

AS YOU ALL HAVE SEEN WHAT HAS HAPPENED ON THURSDAY JULY 12, 2012, AFTER THE JUDGE, JUSTICE KAFARATI HAD ADJOURNED THE CASE FOR MORE THAN ONE MONTH ONLY FOR HIM NOT TO SHOW UP IN THE COURT ON THE 12 OF JULY 2012 TO GIVE THE FINAL JUDGEMENT AS HE PROMISED, AND AS OF JULY 13, 2012, NO NEW DATE HAS BEEN GIVEN FOR THE HEARING OF THAT CASE AGAIN. AS THIS BLOG SAID MORE THAN A MONTH AGO, THAT WHY THE CASE LINGERS ON IS BECAUSE THEY ARE TRYING TO DO SOMETHING TO DESTROY IT.

ELECTION WAS RIGGED IN EVERY STATE IN NIGERIA EXCEPT IN THOSE STATES WHERE THE OPPOSITION PARTIES ARE IN POWER. THE GOVERNMENT LIED TO THE WORLD THAT THE ELECTION WAS FREE AND FAIR BECAUSE THEY BROUGHT THE INTERNATIONAL ELECTORAL OBSERVERS TO PLACES WHERE THEY ARRANGED SO NO CORRUPTION WOULD BE SEEN. WE, JUSTICE FOR AKWA IBOM ORGANIZATION, WERE ABLE TO CATCH MANY ELECTION CORRUPTION, IRREGULARITIES, AND KILLINGS ON TAPE BECAUSE WE KNEW FROM THE BEGINNING WHAT PRESIDENT JONATHAN AND THE PDP WERE UP TO. BECAUSE THE REST OF THE PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY BELIEVED THE LIES OF THIS ADMINISTRATION OF A FREE AND FAIR ELECTION, THE CITIZENS OF NIGERIA WERE CAUGHT OFF GUARD.  IT IS A PITY THAT MOST OF YOU, THE CITEZENS, WHO ARE LIVING RIGHT THERE IN THE COUNTRY HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH THINGS HAVE FALLEN APART AND WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN IN NIGERIA. IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEA YOU WILL AGREE WITH GENERAL BUHARI AND THE REST OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE BOLD ENOUGH TO STAND UP AGAINST THE STATUS QUO, BECAUSE WHILE MOST OF YOU MIGHT CHOOSE TO BE COWARDS AND SIT DOWN THERE AND DIE RATHER THAN GOING THERE TO DIE, SOME PEOPLE WILL NOT DO THE SAME. AS SUCH THERE WILL BE MORE BLOOD, MORE TEARS, MORE SORROWS, AND MANY AFRICAN COUNTRIES WILL REFUSE YOU AS REFUGEES. MANY IN THAT COUNTRY TODAY HAVE PILED UP WEAPONS UPON WEAPONS WHICH THEY HAVE STOLEN OUR MONEY TO BUY AS THEY HAVE SWORN NEVER TO LET YOU AND THE COUNTRY BE FREE FROM THEIR OPPRESIVE AND CORRUPT GRI P BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID THAT THERE WILL BE A DAY OF RECKONING SHOULD THINGS CHANGE. SO THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARE STANDING UP NOW ARE THOSE WHO KNOW THAT SHOULD THEY BE CALLED UPON THAT THEY HAVE A CLEAN SLATE.

IT IS FAR MORE EASY TO KEEP A COUNTRY TOGETHER THAN FIGHING AND TRYING TO DIVIDE IT. IT IS FAR MORE CHEAPER TO TAKE CARE OF THE CITIZENS THAN TO FINANCE A WAR AND FIND A PLACE TO CAMP THE REFUGEES. SO TO MOST OF YOU, THE CITIZENS, WHO HAVE BEEN SENTAMENTAL OF THIS ISSUE THE DAY IS COMING THAT THOSE IN POWER WOULD DEPART THE COUNTRY TO REUNITE WITH THEIR FAMILIES IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD WHILE LEAVING YOU IN THE RUINS AND THE MESS THAT THEY HAVE CREATED. YOU WILL FIGHT TO KILL EACH OTHER AS IT HAS ALREADY STARTED FROM THE NORTH AND OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. YOU WILL KILL EACH OTHER WITH NO END IN SIGHT. IT IS SO PATHETIC THAT WHEN SOME OF YOU WOULD HEAR THIS AND THEN YOU WOULD REPLY WITH, IT IS NOT OUR PORTION. WHO TOLD YOU THAT? DON’T YOU KNOW THAT YOU MUST PLAY A PART IN THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT GOD TO DO FOR YOU? REMEMBER WHEN LUCIFER ROSE UP AGAINST GOD, GOD SIMPLY KICKED HIS ASS WITHOUT WASTING TIME, BUT IF GOD SAT THERE AND SAID IT IS NOT MY PORTION, WE WOULD BE WORSHIPING SATAN TODAY INSTEAD OF GOD. NOTE THAT GOD PLAYED A PART IN WHAT HE WANTED FOR HIMSELF AND THEREBY US ALSO.

SOME PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO FIND A SOLUTION TO THE NATION’S PROBLEM WHILE YOU ARE ALL STILL STANDING ASIDE AND WATCHING. DO YOU THINK THAT THE GREAT GOD WILL COME FROM THE HEAVENS TO CHANGE THINGS AND RESCUE ALL OUR PEOPLE OR ARE YOU STILL WAITING FOR ANOTHER FATHER MOSES WHO WILL COME AND LEAD YOU ALL OUT OF THE HANDS OF YOUR PEOPLE WHO HAVE HELD YOU IN CAPTIVITY? DO YOU THINK AMERICA, EUROPE, OR THE UNITED NATIONS WILL COME TO HELP YOU? KNOW NOW THAT WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN IN NIGERIA WILL BE THE WORST CRISES IN RECENT TIMES AND IT WILL BE SO SAD BECAUSE GOD HAS GIVEN YOU ALL THE TIME TO STAND UP TO COME TOGETHER AS ONE TO TAKE BACK WHAT BELONGS TO YOU: YOUR LIFE, YOUR LIBERTY, YOUR FREEDOM, AND YOUR NATION. I HAVE BEEN PART OF THE STRUGGLE ALL MY LIFE AND I AM STILL IN THE STRUGGLE WITH YOU AND I WILL BE IN THE FOREFRONT, PERSONALLY, SPIRITUALLY, PHYSICALLY, MUSICALLY, WHEN THE FINAL REVELUTION TAKES HOLD. WE CAN AVERT THIS CATASTROPHY IF EVERY ONE CAN STAND UP TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS A CHANGE TO CALM AND APPEASE THE SITUATION, EITHER WILLINGLY OR BY FORCE. WE CAN STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING BY STANDING UP NOW AND LETTING THESE CORRUPT POLITICIANS KNOW THAT THE POWER BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE. WE MUST COORDINATE AS A PEOPLE AND TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY! THIS IS WRITTEN AND IT WILL BE PART OF YOUR HISTORY AS MY SONGS HAVE BECOME PART OF THE HISTORY AND THE PROPHESIES THAT HAVE BEEN FULFILLED. REMEMBER WHAT HAS BEEN HIDDEN FROM THE WISE AND THE PRUDENT IS REVEALED TO THE BABY WITH THE SUCKLING. TO MY FELLOW COUNTRY MEN AND WOMEN MY LOVE AND RESPECT TO YOU AT ALL TIMES REGARDLESS OF WHERE I AM OR WHERE I MAY BE. COME AS ONE AND THE NATION WILL BECOME STRONG. GOD BLESS NIGERIA AND NIGERIANS. ONE LOVE AND ONE HEART.
