It has become a pastime of sorts for the APC crowd to inundate anybody who wants to listen, how the so called Integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari is the best thing to have happened to post-colonial Nigeria. They do this with a certain air of arrogance elevating Buhari to something of a Saint without a single foible.
As the 2019 general elections draw near, the craze has reached even new proportions, and the latest scheme (but which is bound to fail), is to make “personal integrity” ( or the lack of it), a defining factor in the forthcoming elections as against the score card of the administration and it’s impact on the welfare of the generality of Nigerians. The target, understandably of this defeatist campaign strategy is candidate Atiku Abubakar, who have forced a disquiet in the camp of the ruling APC on account of his towering popularity which looks certain to guarantee his victory by the 16th of February, 2019 so as to Get Nigeria Working Again. The modus operandi of the strategy is simple: emphasize Buhari’s so called integrity, and contrast same with Atiku’s.
At the official launch of the APC Presidential campaign in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom state last Friday, this chorus of integrity was chanted with reckless abandon by the numerous party members who mounted the rostrum reiterating the vaunted integrity of candidate Buhari, and why that is a quality enough to earn him a hard-sought re-election. From the Director General of the Campaign Organization-Rotimi Amaechi to Adams Oshiomole amongst others, the so-called Integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari was adumbrated notwithstanding the fact that many of them sounded like a broken record.
Controversial party chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomole in an interview with The Daily Sun Newspapers some three weeks ago put it in black and white thus, “I believe the president will be re-elected on the basis of his personal integrity”. Even the president himself seem to be playing the part. At a religious function in Kano a fortnight ago, he told his audience to elect only candidates with credibility and integrity in 2019. Making a veiled reference to his overrated integrity.
When the spokesman of the Buhari Campaign Organization, Mr. Festus Keyamo played host to a political programme on Channels TV the other day, he was also seen singing this swan song. Ditto Garba Shehu, Femi Adesina and the numerous other image makers of this president. With the manner in which they go about it, it gives away the impression of a well rehearsed plot behind the scene namely, to present president Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians once again, as the only chief priest before whom divination to the ifa Oracle is possible, as they did in the run up to the 2015 polls.
The reason for this however is not hard to seek. There is nothing the government of the day has to show for its stewardship three and a half years after it promised Nigerians a Change that has proven to be a mirage. Whereas it campaigned at the time on the three pillars of Fighting Corruption, Improving the Economy and Enhancing our National Security, a one-off look at these heads of campaign thrust shows that we have only progressed in retrogression under its watch. And the facts out there bear us out that they need no demonstration in this intervention.
Having come to this realisation, the only alternative is to latch on to the time worn “mai gaskiya” narrative, and re-present him as the last of the ‘saints’ without who the survival of Nigeria will be forgotten. Hence why Nigerians are inundated every other day with rhetorics around an overpriced integrity that is not supported by verifiable facts. I shall return to this soon.
Now, it is not that this writer discounts “integrity” as an integral quality of leadership. No serious person should be heard advancing such proposition. Indeed ancient scientist and Greek philosopher, Aristotle underscored the importance of same in leadership when he intsructively observed, “because rulers have power, they’ll be tempted to use it for personal gain. It is important that politicians withstand this temptation, and that requires integrity”. He concluded by delimiting it’s fundamentals thus, “integrity is about having the right ethical values that become visible in a pattern of behaviour”. Our own professor Chunua Achebe (May he rest well), weighed in on the matter in latter years, and defined the truest test of integrity as the blunt refusal to compromise, writing on the subject in his pamphletter, The Trouble with Nigeria.
A common denominator to be seen in the quality of integrity as laid down by the two great men, is that it is not a feat attained by undue repetition informed by prejudice of political party megaphones. On the contrary it is a serious character-trait whose visibility must flesh out from a consistent pattern of behaviour to paraphrase Aristotle. A deeper insight into the matter would also reveal that it is not synonyms with ascetism, or the ability to hold extreme religious views. Quite to the contrary it is the quality of being honest and having strong moral values.
But how has president Muhammadu Buhari fared in his much vaunted claim to being the very paragon of integrity? A closer look at the behavioural pattern of the Daura born septuagenerian since he found himself as a democratically elected president, shows that he is anything but a man of high integrity as the APC crowd tries to force down our throats. There is nothing in the behavioural pattern of this president three and a half years since after he took on the “Babar Riga”, that suggests he has a distaste for suspicious, nay “improper behaviour”. Up until today, even the most ardent APC supporter cannot point to a peculiar and distinctive conduct of this president that supports these outlandish claims to integrity. Unlike as was seen in the leadership choices of say, Burkina Faso’s Thomas Sankara who typifies integrity, President Muhammadu Buhari’s claim to integrity have been more of an exercise in cosmeticism. And the indications are there for all to see.
First of, any keen observer would notice that this president has observed in the breach the sort of lifestyle he promised to lead if elected into power pre-2015. From maintaining the number of jets in the presidential fleet, to traveling abroad to treat headache and sore throat, and what not, president Muhammadu Buhari has proven to be a turn coat, whose word is not his bond. A character trait which should not be seen in a man that lays so much claim to having integrity. But that is not all.
If compromise as pointed out by Achebe is the yardstick for measuring integrity, then president Muhammadu Buhari should not be decorated as a man of integrity by Keyamo and friends. This is because we have seen him condone corrupt behaviour right under his nose, and even received into his party, persons who are flagged for corruption by the anti-graft agency, EFCC. In this connection, the particular case of the former SGF, Babachir Lawal sticks out like the proverbial sore thumb. While he was reluctantly shoved aside for the infamous grass cutting scandal, he remains until today un-prosecuted and was even rumoured to have single-handedly nominated his successor. In the wake of the scandal rocking the Kano State governor, who promised to deliver some 2 million votes towards his re-election, President Muhammadu Buhari told a stunned world, that Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje was the best thing to have happened to governance. Long before this time, he had absolved late General Sani Abacha of any financial impropriety. Referring to him as a good man. But up until today, continues to purportedly recover the Abacha loots from every corner of the world.
Through and through, he has been a typical party man condoning the rot from within his party and calling out those outside his party. As at today, at least three of his appointees are alleged to have been involved in a certificate forgery scandal. Yet this Mr. “integrity” has not summoned the balls to ask them to take a walk from his government pending when they are able to clear their names with the appropriate authorities. Here, we speak of Mr. Okoi- Obono Obla and the minister of communications, Abdur-raheem Adebayo Shittu. If the former minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun resigned, it is widely believed that it was on her honour and not informed by signals from the presidential quarters.
In the context of financial prudence and management, president Muhammadu Buhari’s “integrity” have also been caught flat footed. Beyond the fact that no one has told Nigerians how much was expended in the campaign that brought PMB to power in 2015, the much talked about recovered Abacha loot, have been enmeshed in secrecy that it is only rational to conclude that they have been re-looted as pointed out by critics. Ditto the recoveries made by the EFCC and other anti graft agencies.
Even inside PMB’s “Oza Room”, we have heard tales from his wife of a certain cabal that runs the show from behind the scene. Buhari’s closest attempt at debunking same was to ask his detractors to point out the cabals. Describing his wife’s remonstrations as “her business”. Such an easy and simplistic obfuscation of the real issue. But we know that it will be fool hardy for anybody to dismiss Aisha’s consistent criticisms with a wave of the hand given the position she occupies in Buhari’s life.
While chewing with that, consider the sudden and alarming rate at which old friends, relatives and acquaintances of this president have risen into stupendous wealth since he came to power! Of course we have the fire eating Buba Galadima to thank for this earth shaking revelations. At a Channels TV program last week, the veteran politician (and an old acquaintance of Buhari), called out the president specifically and put his much vaunted “integrity” in the ‘dock’ before eventually passing a vote of “Zero Integrity” on him on account of how he has corruptly enriched his old friends and associates who are today living in eye popping mansions scattered in and about Daura-GRA.
While it may be contested that these are mere allegations, the fact that the Presidency have not officially reacted to Galadima’s allegations suggests their truism. Nobody knows if Buhari’s handlers are afraid of being sent to the “market square” as Alhaji Buba Galadima threatened at that program.
One could go on and on to chronicle the different behavioural pattern of this president that robs him of any claim to integrity. Upon a further look, one notices that this has been so since in his days as the military head of state. And the particular episode of the 53 notorious suit cases, and General Muhammadu Buhari’s role in same bear us out here. If one might also add, the unresolved case of $2.8 billion allegedly looted while he served as petroleum minister in 1977 further casts a doubt on this vaunted integrity.
If President Muhammadu Buhari has anything, it is a cult following in his North Western political base pre-2015. A followership which it must be mentioned, was not anchored on any proven integrity, but on ideological/religious sentiments.
Assuming, but without conceding however that this president has the wealth of integrity that have been arrogated to him, it is submitted that integrity as a leadership quality is not of itself, determinative of performance. Nations become great not on the dry bones of a leader’s integrity, but their ability to make core decisions and choices that impact the overall well-being of the state. What is more, while it is good for a leader to have personal integrity, there are no guarantees that members of his administration will also be of equal integrity. Hence the need for leadership not to be based on the moral credentials of one man, but through the building and sustenance of strong institutions that will deliver, independent of the driver of the process. In essence therefore, nations do not need SAINTS. They need PERFORMERS to grow and become developed. Adams Oshiomole was therefore in the wrong when he professed that Buhari’s “personal integrity” is enough to earn him another slice of the pie. If indeed Buhari has integrity, it is however not in doubt that he has failed to transform same into any meaningful developmental impact on Nigeria and Nigerians.
Which brings us finally to the forthcoming elections. Assuming Buhari has all the integrity as credited to him, we have seen the limits of what could be achieved with that: the annexation of towns and communities in Borno state by Boko Haram; the overbloated debt profile of the nation running into a staggering 22 Trillion Naira; the high rate of unemployment that has reached an all-time-high of 23%; double digit inflation at the rate of 18.8%; the shut down of our tertiary institutions for upwards of two months due to strike action by academic staff; the threatened shut down of the economy by the organised labour; the mindless killings from Zamfara to Benue, Plateau and elsewhere; a wobbling stock market and an economy headed for the rocks from the analysis of financial experts.
With this score card, no leader should merit a second bite at the cherry. Including President Muhammadu Buhari. His so called integrity is a fraud, a wool over the eyes to further hoodwink Nigerians to repeat the mistake of 2015. This is more so when the facts out there suggests that this over priced “integrity” cannot withstand any serious stricture as Alhaji Buba Galadima demonstrated the other day.

Food for Living: Inspire Yourself
By Henry Ukazu
Greetings Dear Friends,
I guess you may have heard the saying, ‘the joy of life is not how happy you are but how happy others can be because of you’.
There’s always an internal feeling of warmth and fulfillment to know that because of the role you played in the life of someone, who can be a mentee or subordinate, they were able to succeed. I once highlighted that Mentors Are Life Savers in one of my articles with the same title.
Every being loves to be happy because happiness brings peace, tranquility, and clarity of mind. Once you have peace within yourself, family, organization and business, you are bound to have clarity of mind which will, in turn, make you focus very well in addition to being inspired to make right decisions. Therefore, it will be wise to say, peace is necessary for any rational and progressive mind/business to succeed. In the course of this article, we shall be exploring different ways we can inspire ourselves.
Every successful or great person was inspired in one way or the other. Every successful business was also inspired by another business, mentor or even the desire to solve a challenging problem in the society. We all need inspiration to move to the next stage in life. Thus the question now becomes, how can one get inspired?
Inspiration comes in different shapes and sizes. It can be internal or external.
Internal motivational comes from within. It’s just like the act of intuition. Internal inspiration is the best form of inspiration. This is because when the force is from within, it opens up with unlimited opportunities and potentials. It’s important to note that nobody can inspire you more than you can inspire yourself. Genuine inspiration always comes from within.
According to a philosopher, “I was thinking one day and I realized that if I just had somebody behind me all the way to motivate me I could make a big difference. Nobody came along like that so I just became that person for myself.”
This is the motivation that is derived from outside forces, e.g. music, mentors, books or even situations like hunger, poverty and life challenges. According to some schools of thought, external inspiration has been the reason they succeeded in life (business, home and academics). This group of people believes that without these external forces they wouldn’t have been able to achieve a great deal in life. Proponents of this theory fail to understand that, they were able to succeed because they had the internal zeal to succeed and the external forces only came as a catalyst. For example, publishing inspirational and motivating articles every week can be a challenging task because it takes discipline to commit to the task. However, as a prolific writer and author, I strongly believe, if one is not inspired, it will be hard for one to write nor matter how inspired the external factors are at play.
Techniques to get inspired:
The beginning of any task is usually the most challenging part. If you can begin a task with little or no resources, you can be sure of everything coming true if you are diligent. Take, for instance, you want to start a business, write a book, begin a Ph.D. program, contest for election, or even starting a good cause/campaign, etc. All you need is just a starting line for the universe to know you have a vision. A little push or inspiration can do the magic. Once you commit to this task, the universe has a way of coming around to support your work. You can also begin by breaking all your tasks in a little piece and taking them one step at a time.
Write your plan
Having a concrete blueprint on what you plan to do is another way to get inspiration. For example, you need to have an idea where you plan to be between 6 to one year, 3 years, 5years, 10 years as the case may be all things being equal. This plan will enable you to inspire yourself. Also, you can write down all of your goals and vision to keep track of where you are, and where you want to be. By so doing, you will keep track of how far you have come in life.
Reduce the daily distractions
Just like success needs concentration and positive energy, inspiration doesn’t work well with distractions. When you are easily accessible it will definitely become hard for you to focus. It’s quite unfortunate to note that many people spend less time on what really matters and spend more time on what doesn’t really matters. In order to change this habit, you’ll need to reduce the influx of distractions that is surrounding you. By so doing, you’ll be truly inspired to focus well.
Music can be a form of inspiration. I personally use music to get work done depending on my state of mind and what I am working on. A typical example was when I was writing my first book, music was one of my biggest inspirational energy, especially when I was down.
Most times we get caught trying to get to the finish point without taking time to take stock how far we have come. Being grateful for who you are and what you have been able to achieve in life can inspire you to do more. It’s always good to reward yourself and celebrate your successes (no matter how big or small they are).
In conclusion, it is pertinent to note that you are the ultimate measure of how far you’ll go in life. According to Wayne Dyer, “Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” If you don’t do the work, nobody will do it for you. Therefore, I charge you today, to inspire yourself.

Opinion: Be Illimitable Pt. 2
By Tolulope A. Adegoke
“Let your presence on earth add values to life. Be responsible”! – Tolulope A. Adegoke
God did not assign His angels to create NATURE, HUMANS and everything. He did not seek supports, he seized personal consultation.
If you wait for others, you will waste like others in frustration. Majority of times, you do not need to rely on other people’s opinion or supports. You need personal SACRIFICE.
The right place and time to create are when things are not okay: “FROM DARKNESS into LIGHT”! God did not give an excuse not to have created something out of nothing, light out of darkness!
Your Spirit must work with your CREATIVITY
Destiny doesn’t answer to your work alone; it answers to your spirit man. It takes you to be blind enough to be able to achieve the unimaginable. It takes “rituals” to solve problems and produce, then reproduce. It takes selflessness to be a ritualist. It requires your blood and sweat. Your spirit must leave you and must settle on the face of the deep!
God sacrificed His Son (Jesus Christ) to save the world. He also asked Abraham to sacrifice his Son (Isaac) to Him.
Rituals require sacrifices either “self” or your “valuables”. Give offering with a knife in your hand to cut your pocket. Give selflessly. Be a “ritualist”! because you are a spiRITUAL being! It takes ritual grace to commit rituals. Babies give offerings, but kings give sacrifices! Gather seeds and commit rituals. You are a government. Don’t live like a refugee. If you cannot sacrifice, you end up a “money-pie”, instead of multiply, and you will only be “food-ful” and not fruitful.
It takes sacrificial rituals to multiply and fruitful! Think the unimaginable, do the unimaginable to achieve the unimaginable results for outstanding profits and change. Sow to acquire and connect into God’s divine inspiration to acquire and connect into God’s divine inspiration.
Death is not when a man dies, it is when the gift(s) in him dies. When a man is not working with his gifts, he is dead! The gift of a man makes way for him- Psalm 68:18.
If you are not gifted or not working or operating by your gift, you are Godless! Gifts in its real sense are not limited to celestial gifts. It is your talents that will open ways and wave for you.
Man becomes a god at the point of his gift. Without your gift, you are an imbecile. Without your gift, you will face torments on earth, but with your gifts, you can enjoy Heaven on earth!
Serve God with your gifts to more gifted for outstanding creativity for productivity. The world has evolved into the age or realms of creativity at a shocking speed beyond the norm. A man’s destiny is not only tied to opportunity(s), but also to divine revelation! Your gift is not a gambling or begging ticket! If you know your value, you will not sell it cheaply.
BECOMING ILLIMITABLE: Activating Your Gifts
The major factor to becoming illimitable by activating our gifts is by divine revelation. Be inspired by God to be productive and well packaged. Prayer cannot displace process. Your dominion answers to what is in you. Poverty is the absence of observation. Poverty is not just the absence of provision, but observation!
Unemployment is the blockage of gifts by man- 2Kings 4:2-6.
Lock up yourself to observe! If you do not lock yourself indoor, you cannot become an industry. The power of observation is better than the power of education. Observation is another word for Thinking. Prayer is formen, while thinking is for gods! Ye are gods?” “
You have the mind of God. When last did you think? When you pray, you inform God; but when you think, you involve God! The greatest Professor is the Holy Ghost. The mind of a man is the superior tool for creativity. When you think, you receive the mind of God. If you are not a graduate of your mind, you are an illiterate! When you learn, you cultivate an absorb knowledge.
Think, Speak and Act to Create! Thinking is the act of generating excuses-eliminating tool-box! It is not only a mode of generating ideas for the ideal. It is better to better to be an inspired engineer than to be an academic engineer, by working in-line with your authentic calling which prolongs your impacts which avoids expiration through the roles of posterity!
Thinking is another medium of fasting-you abstain from any form of distraction. The greatest television on earth is the Human Mind! Selfless imagination is better than a selfless hard-work.
Pleasure is the greatest weapon which I refer to as a beautiful distraction adopted by the devil and its cohorts to bring man out of his dominion! There is nothing wrong in being a football fan, but don’t be a football fool! Pleasure should become a poison to you. Pleasure could be likened as honey coated with poison! Pleasure is the current poison that limits or stops a man from fulfilling his authentic purpose on earth. “A little Sleep, A little Slumber; Plenty Sleep. Plenty slavery and death!” If your work cannot make you work at night, you will end up in the prison of life!
If you subscribe to quietness, you will end up in blossom ideas and outputs, because in quietness lies the truth. Silence is the best place for inventions.
Thinking is a known secret. Use information to pass examinations; for effective and productive activities, engage revelation to grow in life and as well share for maximum impacts.
Most research works in the Third World Countries are simply “read-search”, and not “real search”! Re(al) search has to do with backing up with empirical evidence through secrets discovered or dug out by you in the course of searching for the truth in-line with target areas. Secrets mean to See, to visualize, to dream; then CREATE!
To maximally engage secrets, you must cut off from those seeking for survival and connect with DREAM chasers! therefore, you need to build a lion’s heart within you in order to be able to take giant steps!
It is therefore in your power to command your season! It is your turn and your time…do not give in to the pressures at hand! Live in the reality of your desired change and authentic purpose.
Thank you for reading. I trust that you have been activated!

Opinion: Be Illimitable!
By Tolulope A. Adegoke
“Righteousness, purity will prevent you from hell-fire, but Creativity will prevent you from earth-fire!”
– Samson Adah Paul
A man may be born into emptiness but no man is empty. A man may be born into blindness, but no man was born blind!
Thomas Edison only had 3months of formal education before he was asked by the school authority to leave because he was regarded a blockhead, but at the end, he left indelible marks and history absorbed him. He became the inventor of light, microphone, science laboratory, generator and many more.
Another vivid example is our Lord Jesus Christ who fulfilled destiny, such that today, uncountable institutions, establishments, ministries has been established in His name.
Dear friends, nothing is too late to achieve! You may not be a professor, but you can still be an inventor!
You can achieve anything because you are an image of God for free…
The word MAN isn’t just a name, but a title backed up with responsibilities. I mean to unveil to you that it is simply:
Progress and development are not products of mere work, money, but the products of DOMINION!
the state of DOMINION is the ability to produce with everything God had created you to become, and as well to subdue!
The Holy Scriptures in the Book of Genesis 1 reveals that each animals were created to be pets to MAN, not to be threats to creations, but when Man fell from DOMINION, Man replaced the positions of the animals, while animals replaced the place of dragons.
Isaiah 11:6-9 as well reveals that the place of dominion is the place of subduing the earth!
CREATIVITY: The Proof of being Unlimited!
Creativity is the act of making something out of nothing. It is the act of overcoming fear and making bold steps and ideas for positive changes.
Creativity could also be stated as the acts of coordinating and cultivating several artistic and scientific processes to solving problems.
The alternative to creativity is witchcraft! If a Believer is not creative, then he is nothing but the aforementioned. Witchcraft is the act of boycotting processes to achieve aims or solve problems.
A man who is not creative is the same as a demon! Lack of creative minds is one of the ultimate causes of extreme poverty!Among others are the causes causes of poverty:
• Bad government
•Lack of good directions /guidance
The problem confronting this part of the world is none of the above, but WORK!
You may not be fruitful when you are hardworking, yet be foodful (stomach infrastructure/ policy) !but when you are a Creative Worker, you can be FRUITFUL.
Work isn’t the original plan of God for MAN, he was created for “Creative Works!”
Entering a bus as a means of transportation could be hard labour, but a plane is a product of Creative Work!
When you do not manufacture, you suffer many fractures!
Work is something you do without applying your mind, but to be creative, you need to work with your MIND!
Righteousness, purity will prevent you from hell fire, but Creativity will prevent you from earth-fire! The qualification for manual work is academic qualification, while that of Creative Work are Divine Inspiration, Revelations and Illuminations!
When you work with your mind, you become the friend of God! You need the power of IMAGINATION to work, to do and to be productive enough to achieve the impossible!
When you work in the realm of imagination, you become productive! Imagine to do and to become!
What you need is simply change of thought patterns!
You can make money with all things if you are creative – money answereth all things!
Engage in all labours with a Creative Mind, you will earn your unimaginable profits.
Alot of people have become slaves in their own lands! There is need to engage Divine Revelation to be productive. The only advantage Man has over robots is the MIND!
Equipment are products of Creative inventions, and has stopped man from working.
We are in the age of the express creativity beyond the ordinary-money will fail, businesses will fold of up, but a Creative Mind will always be a sought-after (that is, force to reckon with)!
Schooling without academic productions is a waste of life!
The Laws that Guides Creativity!
The Book of Genesis 1:2 speaks volume on the above subject, which has to do with the BEGINNING OF CREATION!
The law that guides Creativity says, you must start at the BEGINNING so as not to end up begging for spaces at the top!
The Third World Countries are abusing the above law of creativity! They do not want to start anything from the beginning, that is why they end up begging for incentives, because they have failed to be retentive! They do not want to start small, that’s why they live so exorbitantly.
You can afford with little beginnings. I charge you to start now! Do not hesitate, do not wait. Start small! Do not despise little beginnings.
The word DOMINION is a combination of three powerful words, that states:
Do(ing) Mini On and On! That is to say, Do small things, and be consistent with it, then you promotion or advancement is assured! Any MAN who doesn’t have a beginning is FAKE!
(To be continued …)
