On attack of Nigeria embassy in Ghana

It is a shame. There is nothing that makes Nigeria great. We can be on the path to greatness of the academicians and human resources at our disposal. If we have capable leaders we can achieve that greatness. Nigeria has become a laughing stock. As a matter of fact, I am appealing to the Presidency and all law enforcement agencies that within a period of 24 hours President Muhammadu Buhari should issue a statement condemning what the Ghanaian government did to us or recall our diplomat. There should be no diplomatic relationship with Ghana right now. They did not destroy a property they destroyed our country. An embassy is a sovereignty. It is a home away from home. What they did is reprehensible. The world is watching with a keen interest. If Nigeria does not react now tommorrow  Togo will annex us and extend their territory because Nigeria is becoming weak by the day. We used to be the giant of Africa. I truly believe that Nigeria under the leadership of Buhari, who was once a military officer should have shown some strength before becoming a laughing stock.

House of Representatives reaction to demolition in Nigeria embassy in Ghana
I don’t think that it is a good idea for us to start attacking Ghanaian interests in Nigeria as been suggested by some lawmakers. It is a very bad approach. It is up to the Presidency to represent us as a country, to tell the world that this is unacceptable to Nigeria. You cannot attack a sovereignty. The Americans are watching, the English are watching, the whole world is watching. Buhari should wake up as a president and act as one. If he cannot do this he should resign and apologise to Nigerians.
My court case with the Edo State govt.
I took Clement Agba, the former Edo State Commissioner for Environment, the former governor of the state, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki under the Freedom of Information (FOI) act to tell me how they spent the money relating to the Water Storm project. Who are the contractors? What are the interest? I asked for twelve prayers and I got all from the High Court judgement.
It cannot be business as usual for politicians
I want to thank His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare 11 for his show of concern and his wealth of wisdom in telling politicians in the state that it can never be business as usual. That’s the reason I am discussing with my lawyers to see how we can get rid of security vote. Where is the security when the police are brutalising us daily, when our houses are been demolished. The first thing that is enshrined in our constitution is government promise to protect our lives and property. None of these things is been done rather they are spending money recklessly because they want to enslave the people and become dictators under the guise of democrats.
