Tomorrow, May 17, 2021, is a Monday, and it is a date with Lagos Talks 91.3 FM, when Adu & The Guru shall be coming on air, as from 0930 hours, live, to the admiration of millions of listeners all over the world.
Tomorrow, again, shall come slightly different, within the component of presentation. We shall be doing more of periscope than just picking the topical issues; one after the other, for blown-up analysis. It is going to take a formula of something like Periscop.
For example, Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Gumi; the scholarly gifted Fulani Cleric, has demonstrated his capacity of infiltrating the Camps of Fulani Bandits, Kidnappers, Terrorists, Herdsmen-Killers and Jihadists; limited to the Fulani stocks only for now anyway, with easy. And there is no gainsaying that the former Army officer – he left the Army as a Captain, medical-doctor-turned-Cleric has enormous goodwill with these dreaded Nigerians.
To think otherwise or concluding to the contrary would be turning facts head-down. He has the full, and most respectful attention of these people, at all times. And these specially designated dangerous specie of humanity have unrestrained confidence on this specially anointed messenger of Allah – Sheikh Gumi.
Another thing we cannot take away from Sheikh Gumi is his ability to be blunt in presentation of [his] facts. You don’t have to like him [and how can he be liked when he speaks with uncontrollable arrogance?] but that does not remove from the authority of his presentations. He is deadly sure of what he says, at all times.
Then, we have to look at another salient factor that compliments his identity. He is well connected, both within the hegemony of the Fulani Nationality or outside of that domineering nomenclatures. He holds the place of leadership within his religious calling with absolute dedication – he is willing; so it looks, to lay down his life to propagate the Islamic Religion. Ipso facto, Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Gumi is a top notch Jihadist; dogmatically controlled by more of spiritual emotions. He can be factually described as a deadly man in taking his Islamic faith into anchorage of propagation.
Sheikh Gumi spoke very recently, and again, very bluntly in his usual characteristic on how “Government is not sincere on this issue of banditry”. Obviously, he must have been referring to the Federal Government, when he made that observation. He even compared the Government to the Bandits and pronounced that “the Bandits are more sincere than the Government”.
Again, either we like it or not, we cannot be running away from discussing Sheikh Gumi; not even after he secured lives of the remaining undergraduates kidnapped from Greenfield University, in Kaduna State on April 20, 2021 – that is after the bandits have executed 5 of the kidnapped students.
And, the most likely way of getting to the bottom-line of whom Gumi is, if we are to get the totality of his life’s larger picture, is to Periscope into his hidden environment.
We shall do that [Periscope} therefore because the man; Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Gumi, is becoming another Philomena in Nigeria. He is climbing up; gradually but steadily, to the top of that definition, where only President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo occupies; amongst living and dead Nigerians. No wonder that Gumi had to lean on Obasanjo’s shoulder in his latest exploits of negotiating the release of some kidnapped people in Kaduna State.
Another subject we just have to look into is this: “Gridlock: Sanwo-Olu abandons Oshodi-Apapa expressway, as motorists, commuters lament plight”, reported the Vanguard Newspaper of May 10, 2021. This must be another sad story of our National life that we should evaluate properly within the line of meritorious narrative. Here is a malady enforced over Two Hundred Million Nigerian people by a few greedy Nigerians, and today the racket; the gridlock that had captured the whole of Lagos Metropolis, delivers above One Billion Naira to the bank accounts of those few individuals on daily basis.
Did l say over One Billion Naira daily? Yes, you heard me well and proper too. Or why did you think that a Presidential Task Force, under the direct Chairmanship of the Vice President; Professor Yemi Osinbajo, fail? Is it where the President of the Federal Republic fails that one Lagos State Governor; Sanwo-Olu, will succeed? And do you think you really want to know how many Billions of Naira that the futile and legacy Presidential Task Force gulped from the Nigerian Till? No, l don’t think you have the shock-absorbing capacity to have those facts.
There is no light in this gridlock dark tunnel because the darkness is created and sustained continuously, and perpetually by CORRUPTION. If you are in doubt, please go and ask the recently suspended Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority; Hadiza Bala Usman, on what happened to her and her wonderful invention – the Call-up Eto App System. The Guru said this before and keeps saying it for years now.
But there is another topical issue towering over and above all other contending ones in today’s Nigeria. That is the declaration of the Southern Nigeria [it is not to be so called but instead, we should just call it Southern States of Nigeria – what is the difference anyway?]
It is this topic; which may be creating a future political terminology for today’s Nigerians and those generations yet unborn, that we must Periscope tomorrow. There are many daring reasons that should be compelling the detailed discussion of this bombshell; detonated in Asaba last week, by the Southern Nigerian States’ Governors. Not the least, for the sake of the future political terminology; which shall say something like this: ON ASABA DECLARATION WE STAND only, but for more far reaching consequences of the detonation.
For now, let a summary of what happened in Asaba last week; the outcome and declaration of the Southern Nigerian States’ Governors, read like this: PROTECTORATE OF SOUTHERN NIGERIA DELIVER NIGERIA FROM TOTAL ANNIHILATIN.
We should be taking a Periscope view of this latest metaphor comprehensively tomorrow, by the grace of God, only at Lagos Talks 91.3 FM, and only by The Guru. It shall be a Periscope like never before in the entire exercise of The Guru on air. Wait and tune in to be part of the knowledgeable revelations.

We are not done yet with the big corruption story emanating from the Maritime Sector of the Nigerian Economy; a story that is currently standing the Minister of Transport; Rotimi Amaechi, and his boss; President Muhammadu Buhari, in the Nigerian Peoples’ Dock of Justice, more than the suspended Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority; Hadiza Bala Usman.
Please, take note that nobody is talking of non-corruptible activities in the music that is playing very loudly in the Ministry of Transport Sector on the matter in question. The question being asked; a question probably borrowed from one of Jeffrey Archer’s Titles, is: Couldn’t there have be honour among thieves?
For more details of what the real issues that prompted the battle between Rotimi Amaech; the Minister of Transport, and the suspended Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority; Hadiza Bala Usman, visit my website – www.godwintheguru.com, as from Tuesday this week. I am uploading facts of the Rufurofo fight, using the words of our late musical legend; Fela Anikulapo Kuti, there at my website, because all of us are entitled to have the facts.
