THIS BAD RULERSHIP SHALL PASS AWAY

Pastor Benny Hinn, the televangelist, spoke recently in Ghana where he prophetically prayed and made holy declarations over some African nations. He also declared Ghana a “Nation for God under Jesus Christ,” and that The Dark Cloud over Nigeria shall clear, adding that the control by Rulers of Darkness over Nigeria shall be broken in 2 years from November 2019. My estimate is that by 2022 this cloud of evil over Nigeria shall pass away to Gods glory.
The case of Nigeria which is the main focus of this piece is quite different and opposite to that of Ghana, perhaps because Ghana had a leader Kwame Nkrumah, in her early days of independence who had a vision, for Ghana as nation, and for Africa as a continent, which guided Ghana to pass through a major Military intervention that helped them to develop a better national conscience, more stable and a more predictable economic growth trajectory.
Unlike Ghana, Nigeria also had a leader Nnamdi Azikiwe (Zik), who had vision for Nigeria, and for Africa but was betrayed by those who made him leader through making him only a ceremonial head while the power to make changes were left with a Northern Prime Minister. Thus while Azikiwe envisioned a great Nigeria and Africa, his colleagues in the north and around him, were determined to make him the Azikiwe of his own local Igbo tribe !
The man did his possible best to steer the course of events towards a great Nigerian conscience but double dealing, ethnicity, thirst for Igbo blood, bad politics of domination forced his own very tribe into a war against Nigeria.
A war in which he deflected and later his own people were defeated and with that defeat, “Zik of Africa” was left to battle as a local champion as Britain teamed with the North to reduce him.
All Igbo politicians should learn from Zik, because, a slave should not expect that his master will give him a different burial from that of his dead colleagues. Igbos in whatever capacity are still handled like slaves of some sort by their northern masters. Their resolve from 1970, seems to be that the Southern Igbos must not be trusted with power but may be used as advisers and slaves, to achieve half harzardly thought out government policies, under different military leaders, until the north trumped up Buhari in a coup which saw Nigeria through her darkest hour. He was overthrown and he made several attempts to via back into power and at last in 2013, found cooperation from the South West, namely Tinubu to be in power today under APC.
Never has Nigeria been so atomistic as it is today and some of the actions that seriously damaged national psyche under APC federal government include:
First, the Crocodile dance in the South-South of Nigeria, with many deaths and non-judicial killings of which no records have been kept.
Second, the 1st Python dance in Igbo land, in which over 2000 youths were killed and buried in shallow graves.
Third the 2nd Python Dance during which it was is alleged that another 1000 of Igbo youths were killed.
Fourth, the killings of over 4000 persons in Benue State alone and over 1000 persons in the Benue -Plateau axis by Fulani herdsmen, yet not one of such herdsmen has been arrested or tried!
Fifth is the “place the Cow-above – human – lives” policies of the government, where herdsmen are allowed to carry high caliber assault rifles without questions, while responsible citizens are not allowed to carry simple hunting guns. Cows wander into any premises, and farmlands to graze leaving destruction of farmlands of people in their trail.
Sixth, the Ruga Cow Colonies policy, an attempt to create Fulani enclaves in all the Southern States of Nigeria by fiat heading towards full islamization of Nigeria.
Nigeria is perhaps the only country among OPEC nations, where Cows can stream into schools, anywhere, graze and walk away freely.
Seventh, is the appearance of Bandits’ activities in the northern areas of Nigeria, which has strengthened the terrorist Boko haram.
Eighth, while the Nigerians were wondering what next, the law to annex all coast land areas to FG was being tested in all the Southern States where the coasts exist. The idea being to make Igbo land area land locked although surrounded by the sea water!!
Ninth, is the latest Anti – Social Media law with death penalty for any anti- government opinion expressed, all aimed at scheming an unconstitutional third term agenda, using every available means including the teleguided judiciary.
These are a few confirmations to the words of Pastor Benny Hinn, that there is a dark cloud of evil ruling and controlling Nigeria. When the wicked is in power the people groan! Nigerians are groaning loudly, But some of the Big Church Pastors wont dare to make such godly declarations of truth over the nation, because they are either compromised, or silenced by selfish ambition powered by End-Time Ecumenism and God sees us all.
Upon hearing Benny’s declaration, I went on my knees and asked God about Biafra? When will the Igbo trials, tests, and wickedness from Nigerian rulers end? Will he accept to list Biafra as one of the Sanctuary nations for Christians in Africa during the coming tribulation? Like Israelites in bondage in Egypt, Ndigbo have remained in Nigeria, and gave their possible bests, remaining faithful to the nation and flag of Nigeria, but recently since 2015, they have been killed in great numbers and intended to be wiped from the face of this earth. Lord when will you come to the help of Ndigbo once again?
The Lord spoke, but that is not for this piece. My prayer now is for God to open the hearts and mouths of His servants and friends to begin to speak Biafra into a Nation under God of Israel within the next few years.
I remember a poster that hung on the wall of the dining section one of my mentor’s house which simply said ” This too shall pass away” As heaven lives we know that surely this wicked dark cloud over Nigeria shall pass away.
