“The trial and subsequent conviction of the former CJN has desecrated the judiciary.” Norrison I. Quakers, SAN
RATIO 3:1 AGGREGATE….PDPs CONSOLATION
“A former United States Ambassador to Nigeria, John Campbell, has defended his assertion that President Muhammadu Buhari only lost the 2003, 2007 and 2011 presidential elections due to the rigging efforts of his opponents, insisting that he won the highest number of votes in those elections.”
The PDP lost to a superior THOUGHT process, backed by APCs power of incumbency, void of morality, which neither the PDP nor the APC (even with Buhari) have.
Whatever PDP’s and Atiku’s claims are (like Buhari once did in 2003, 2007 and 2011) amount to an opinion, the fact by judgement is….. Atiku and PDP have LOST, and Buhari and APC have WON! But the consolation of the PDP is their rigging hat trick of 2003, 2007 and 2011 by the evidence of Ambassador John Campbell, compared to Buhari’s lone goal rigging effort, EU acknowledged as
“severe operational and transparency shortcomings”,
and then this time bomb, from the same EU
“The elections became increasingly marred by violence and intimidation. This harmed the integrity of the electoral process and may deter future participation” as we shall see.
1 “severe transparency shortcomings”
2 “harmed the integrity of the electoral process”
are the rigging points of “honest” Buhari’s lone rigging goal against Atiku and the PDP! But the PDP still have the aggregate 16 year edge!
The judgement that gave Buhari victory was the result of a well thought out strategy, broken into objectives and executed as tactics, culminating in the Judgement of wednesday, October 30, 2019.
When a GOAL is defined, STRATEGY has a job! STRATEGY breaks down the GOAL into smaller units called OBJECTIVES and deploys the 4 Operational Ms (motivation, money, materials and men) men with mental skills to achieve each objective. The deployed skill for each objective with the goal in mind (within the context of strategy) is called TACTIC……this is the process of what transpired. This article will look at the 12 TACTICS Buhari’s camp deployed to arrive at this victory, but not in any particular sequential order.
To secure the goal of the presidency (in the face of what the APC and Buhari would call the PDP’s loot profile) the strategy to the goal (in this article) has been broken into 12 objectives, each with a defined tactic (the most significant of which was the compromised procedure in the removal of the Chief Justice) it paid off.
THE GOAL FROM APC’s PERSPECTIVE: is sustaining Buhari as President, by EVERY POSSIBLE means in the face of the loot profile of the opposition:
In Strategy, vested and vital interests are the soul of the GOAL, for these reasons, morality is often the first VICTIM, so this talk about Buhari being honest is small minded propaganda talk, that President Jonathan put this way:
“A person can indeed be corrupt without stealing a dime.”
TACTIC 1: COVERT PSYCHOLOGICAL COERCION OF SUPREME COURT JUDGES.
THOUGHT PROCESS: By the principle of end in mind, the court is the “terminal end” and the bench therefore becomes the focus. The subtle psychological coercion tact, was the deployment of the “Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU)” to whip Tanko and his colleagues on the bench in line…..it worked to the degree of 7-0!
The Judgement was fast without a voice in dissent, this is contrary to what happened in 2007, (as we shall see) when the “Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU)” did not coerce any judge, three judges (including Onnoghen) gave it Buhari, but Yar’adua won by 4/3.
The coercive deployment of NFIU
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a September 14, 2019 report it titled:
“Senate President Lawan, Gbajabiamila, CJN Tanko under probe”
“The letter with reference: NFIU/ACCFT/ACCOBANKS/VOL.I/877/PO5IA29 reads: “Request for information on: All accounts of: the National Assembly, National Judicial Council (NJC), all the members of the National Assembly, principal officers (management) of the National Assembly Service Commission, (and) of principal officers of the judiciary.”
QUESTION: How come all the judges (in the face of this subtle Coercion) unanimously gave it to Buhari, as against what Buhari would regarded as more corrupt Judiciary whose 2007 decision gave it to Yar’adua by a split 4/3 slim majority, with Onnoghen as one of the minority judges that gave it to Buhari, even though Yar’adua won?
King Samuel O Dguy, in his account titled: “Divided Supreme Court upholds Yar’Adua’s election”, provided the following details
“Friday’s judgment in Buhari’s appeal left four out of seven justices of the apex court upholding the April 21, 2007 presidential election while the remaining three said it could not stand. Justices George Oguntade, Maryam Mukthar and Samuel Onnoghen, while delivering their judgments in respect of Buhari’s appeal, held that there was substantial non-compliance with the Electoral Act 2007, which vitiated the election.”
PORTRAIT OF COERCION: JUSTICE JOHN INYANG OKORO.
“John Inyang Okoro was born on July 7, 1959). “He became a Supreme Court judge on November 15, 2014. It’s interesting to note that Justice Okoro was one of the judges arrested by the State Security Service in a controversial raid on judges’ homes in 2016.
And alleged that he was being persecuted by the SSS because he refused a bribe from the current transportation minister, Rotimi Amaechi.”
QUESTION: Was the humiliating treatment, a well thought out plan of coercion, to whip justice John Inyang Okoro in line?
If it was….
THE 7 JUDGES.
1 CJN Tanko Muhammad
2 Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour.
3 Kayode Ariwoola.
4 Justice Amiru Sanusi.
5 John Inyang Okoro.
6 Justice Ejembi Eko
7 Justice Uwani Abba-Aji.
BUHARI AND COERCION:
Coercion (by the tradition of fascism, of which Buhari is a “signatory”) has always been the political tactic of Buhari, his infamous statement of HATE SPEECH fame, that amounted to psychological coercion, makes the point:
“If what happened in 2011 (alleged rigging) should again happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked in blood.’’
TACTIC 2: EXPOSE FROM THE FINAL EU REPORT, OF A COMPROMISED PROCESS.
THOUGHT PROCESS: Onnoghen was perceived a threat, the long delay in his getting the top legal job is the evidence. Buhari’s vested interest to be president was so strong, the man had to be removed, (regardless of due process) and he was, and that by fascist means.
The removal of the Chief Justice before the election has compromised the Election with fallouts on the Judgement of wednesday, October 30, 2019.
“EU ELECTION OBSERVATION MISSION
NIGERIA GENERAL ELECTIONS 2019
Recorded the following:
“The suspension of the chief justice of Nigeria by the president a few weeks before the elections was seen to lack due process and reportedly undermined judicial independence.”
“Overall, the EU EOM concluded the elections were marked by severe operational and transparency shortcomings, electoral security problems and low turnout”
“The elections became increasingly marred by violence and intimidation. This harmed the integrity of the electoral process and may deter future participation”
For a government that claims to be moral, this is a damning and damaging entry…..but who cares? for “the end justifies the means”
