According to the famous educationist of Victorian Lagos, Henry Rawlingson Carr, “Historians are a poor hand at predicting the future, but they have the power not even claimed by the Deity of altering the past.”
Indeed the business of altering the past becomes imperative when the past is leprously infested with chronic falsehoods implanted by men of treacherous characters, inflated ego and, spurious adventurism founded on cloudy exploits.On Thursday October 20, 2022, Alhaji Ned Nwoko who popularly goes by the title of Prince, in his characteristic carriage of a desperate political desperado sponsored a cacophonic rag-tag band of street urchins hurriedly put together by one fictitious group miscalled Save Humanity Advocacy Center (SHAC) with an equally fictitious job-man with fictitious identity called Johnson Kolawole Michael to engage on a dance of shame miscalled demonstration against Senator Peter Nwoboshi at INEC Headquarters, Abuja. Was it not indeed a dance of shame that Alhaji Ned Nwoko should abandon his home-base where he is required to canvass for votes and which has INEC office, but decided to employ unknown street urchins to express his obvious rejection by his people?
Alhaji Ned Nwoko wants to hand-twist the INEC to act against its constitutional responsibility over a matter that is before the Supreme Court of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Ndi beanyi si na okuku yua ahulu ani achubaa oso. (Our people say, when the fowl pollutes the air, the land on which it stands begins to chase it around). This is the irony of a man who says he is a lawyer and claims to belong to the class of learned gentlemen. Ironically, his band of political hirelings recruited for the shameful outing bears the title of “Save Humanity Advocacy Center”, a group that should be campaigning against the now institutionalized culture of killings, kidnappings, and banditry in the nation, if they are actually real and not fake, but decided to advocate for the interest of the protected national criminal.If one may ask, what can be more criminal to the average Nigerians of today, nay the Christian population, than the on-going violent kidnappings for ransoms and the mass killing of the free citizens of this country? At any rate, if Ned Nwoko believes in his treacherous imagination that the only means of achieving his ambition of a Muslim Senator in the sea of ardent and unrepentant Christians is to sacrifice Senator Peter Nwoboshi on the altar of Fulanization and Islamization, he will definitely be confronted with an insurmountable concrete wall.
It is on record that Senator Peter Nwoboshi far outclassed his contemporaries in institutionalized attraction of infrastructural development as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which Alhaji Nwoko cannot dispute.The Greek philosopher Aristotle speaking about his master Plato once stated, “Plato is dear to me, but dearer still is truth.” I am not here to eulogize criminality but rather to place the truth on the scales of equity and the moral principles of justice. Justice without equity is injustice eulogized! This was what Our Lord Jesus Christ meant when he in John 8: 7 commanded those that brought a woman accused of adultery to him, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” This is the position the likes of Senator Peter Nwoboshi finds himself today. This was the same position the likes of former Governors Joshua Dariye of Plateau State and Jolly Nyame of Taraba State found themselves. And there can be no better reason for their respective travails than the fact that their roles and personalities presented insurmountable obstructions to the heinous project of Fulanization and islamization of their people. It is no longer a hidden fact that Alhaji Ned Nwoko who represents the fountain-head of Fulanization and islamization among the Igbo of Delta State, and claims to be the only hope of an Igbo Muslim Senator, sees Senator Peter Nwoboshi as the major concrete wall between him and the actualization of his pay-masters’ islamization venture.
This is the fundamental reason behind the current travails of Senator Peter Nwoboshi which are clearly the treacherous handiwork of Ned Nwoko. The truth is that most of us walk free today not because those in prisons and detention committed more crimes than us, but simply because we have been able to either strictly obey the eleventh commandment, which stipulates that “Thy shall not be caught”, or are under the protective cover of the same people charged with the responsibility to bring us to judgment. This is where the likes of Alhaji Nwoko fit in. Or can Ned Nwoko boldly come out to tell the world that all the wealth he acquired are not spotted with questionable deals. We are waiting for him. It is not enough to tell us stories of his bogus investments and companies. That sort of story belongs to the lazy-minded members of the public and not to people like us. We have had similar stories from the likes of Chief M. K. O. Abiola, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and Rochas Okorocha. All these men like Alhaji Ned Nwoko were financially empowered under an emblematic Islamic cult of perpetual allegiance and subservience by the Fulani Caliphate to advance the cause of Islam among their people. To these people, disentangling themselves from the slavish grip of the Fulani oligarchy equates with suicide.Of cause we were there when Alhaji Ned Nwoko represented us in the Federal House of Representatives and how the emergence of the little known Hon. Pascal Adigwe from Ogwashi-Uku drove him underground into ignominious political irrelevance until recently when he was commissioned as the official jihad flag-bearer in Aniomaland.From all indices of moral judgment and taxonomy of self-inducing daring exploits, Alhaji Ned Nwoko is a political con-man par excellence who tactically maneuvered his way into Islamic faith through his clandestine marriage to the innocent but unfortunate Tunisian woman with the sole objective of acquiring ill-gotten wealth. He criminally used the woman’s Tunisian ancestry and Islamic faith to con many big-time Arab businessmen through whom he maneuvered his way into the heart of Sokoto Caliphate, where he presented himself as the indisputable Amir al-muminum (Commander of the Muslim faithful) in Delta State. Having achieved his objectives he decided to send the poor woman packing and married one Nollywood free-figure named Regina Daniels or Daniel whichever applies.
Needless to state that the vast acres of land he clandestinely acquired from his kinsmen to establish his so-called Sports University is still a subject of dispute. But the most revealing aspect of Alhaji Ned Nwoko’s job-man scheming is that the said Sports University is indeed alleged to be registered in Saudi Arabia as an Islamic University charged with the stealth objective of training future jihadists among our people. Added to this clandestine educational venture is the revelation that it was indeed Alhaji Ned Nwoko in collaboration with Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa and Ndudi Elumelu that wickedly acquired the Mile Five settlement at the economic expense of our people who earn their daily bread from there, for the purpose of establishing a Fulani Muslim settlement where rapid-response Fulani Jihad strike force will be stationed to kill our people in their ancestral land, since the Oko cattle market is too exposed for such act.It is therefore not out of place to believe that Alhaji Ned Nwoko made his money for two reasons: first, to marry and change women in the manner of our women changing their wrappers; and second, to turn our people to Alakuba. None of these two objectives has benefited our people rather they respectively symbolize rebellion in morals and rebellion in spirit. And these are the reasons for the rejection of Alhaji Ned Nwoko by the people of Aniomaland for his Senatorial ambition.“Prince” in title at his Idumuje Ugboko native enclave and, “Alhaji” in title among his Fulani and Muslim pay-masters, Alhaji Ned Nwoko represents a past and present leprously infested with chronic falsehoods implanted by his treacherous character, inflated ego and, spurious adventurism founded on cloudy exploits. Alhaji Ned Nwoko even though he hides it under the treacherous title of “Prince” cannot tell us that among his Fulani paymasters that he is officially addressed as “Alhaji Ned Nwoko.” Will he also deny that as a Muslim he has not undertaken pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina, one of the five pillars of the Islamic faith that qualifies him to bear the title of Alhaji?Let Alhaji Ned Nwoko tell his people his Muslim name because as a Muslim convert he is bound by the faith to acquire a Muslim name in the same manner a baptized Christian is required to adopt a Christian name. Let us know if it is Abdulahi Ned Nwoko or Abubakar Ned Nwoko. Or is he hiding it from us, or he is not sure of his Islamic faith? Otherwise we might be convinced that he is truly a commercial Muslim convert, the kind of people the Quran in Sura (Chapter) 5:61 refers to when it states, “When they come to you they said: ‘we are believers’, indeed infidels they came and infidels they departed.”Yes! Alhaji Ned Nwoko is the official Jihad flag-bearer in Aniomaland representing not the interests of the Igbo of Delta State, but the interests of his Muslim umma whose authority radiates from Sokoto Caliphate. The Quran which is Alhaji Ned Nwoko’s holy book is indelible on this injunction. In Sura 5:51 the Quran explicitly states: “Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends and protectors. They are friends and protectors of one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship and supports them shall become one of their number.”
Let Alhaji Ned Nwoko come out boldly as a true Muslim, unless he is saying that indeed he is not a true Muslim, to tell the people of Aniomaland, his so-called kinsmen he wants to represent in the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria if the above injunction from the Muslim Holy Book—the Quran does not fully explain his relationship with them. Please Alhaji Ned Nwoko stand up and tell us the reason why we should vote for you to represent us when your holy book instructs you to neither take us as your friend or protector. This is because the people of Delta North Senatorial zone are ninety-nine point ninety-nine percent Christians (99.99 %) Christians. We want to know why the same man who takes us as his enemy on account of his Islamic religion will want to represent us in the Senate. Do we now say that is another form of spiritual colonization coming by way of Alhaji Ned Nwoko? Is it not an irony of history that Alhaji Ned Nwako’s native enclave Idumuje Ugboko was a fountain-head of the Church Missionary Society (CMS) Missionaries in the Western Niger District of the Anglican Church in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and had the singular credit of producing the first Igbo female school teacher and Headmistress named Sarah Nsenu, described in CMS archival report of December 18, 1909 as “Our first Ibo school mistress?”
The same report further stated that in 1909 Sarah Nsenu had “84 scholars and two probational pupil teachers. In addition to Serah Nsenu, the CMS archival records mentioned such notable missionaries and teachers from Idumuje Ugboko as their first convert John Elumelu, David Diai, B. Nsenu, David Juwa, and Julius Nwabueze among others. This indeed explains why in spite its small size in population Idumuje Ugboko is entrusted with the enormous responsibility of an Archdeaconry of the Anglican Diocese of Asaba. How can the same Idumuje Ugbo turnout to be the fountain-head of the Islamization of the same people they assisted in making Christians? Our God is not asleep. Haba Alhaji Ned Nwoko! I ma na-ala nne, na-eshigbu nwa (You can’t be fucking a mother and suffocating her baby at the same time) so says a popular adage among our people. Alhaji Ned Nwoko wants to fuck our mothers and suffocate their children at the same time for the sole reason of achieving his inglorious journey to Islamize our people through his Senatorial ambition. No now! Chukwu aju! Indeed I might not be over-stepping my bounds if I hereby declare that, to the memory and throne of these intrepid indigenous Christian Missionaries of Idumuje Ugboko extraction we bring Alhaji Ned Nwoko to judgment.
