APC & The ‘Oracle of Delphi – By Taiwo Lawrence Adeyemi

Delphi was an important Greek religious sanctuary sacred to god Apollo. Located on Mt. Parnassus near the Gulf of Corinth, the sanctuary was home to the famous ‘Oracle of Apollo’ which gave cryptic predictions and guidance to both city, politicians, states, governments, and individual’s.

The ‘Oracle of Delphi’ was the most important shrine in all Greece, and in theory all Greeks respected it’s independence. Arguments over the correct interpretation of the oracle were common, but the oracle was always happy to give another prophecy if more gold was provided.

The monumental findings across Nigeria by elections observers/monitors, journalists, and CSO’s is that the 2019 elections was a sham and was characterized by rigging, arson, vote buying [retail corruption], and thuggery. And they has roundly condemned this year elections across all the spheres, namely; presidential, national assemblies, gubernatorial and state assemblies.

First, is APC willing to confess that it rigged the 2019 general elections [presidential, national assemblies, gubernatorial and state assemblies]?

Secondly, is APC ready to renounce the stolen Nigerians votes?

Or, “Unless therefore that I’m convince by the testimony of INEC Nigeria or by the dearest reasoning, unless I’m by any means of the electoral act, I quoted and unless they thus rendered my conscience bound by the voting that took place, I cannot and I will not surrender the stolen mandate, for it is unsafe for Nigerians politicians to admit and concede defeat, because of the perks, contracts, office paraphernalia, and the security votes. Here I stand! Nigeria we hail thee……”

In his commentary on the book of Galatians, Martin Luther, the Augustinian Monk, said; “There must be people in high office, of course. But we are not to ‘DEIFY’ them. Lest we attach too much importance to the person, God leaves with important persons offenses and sins, sometimes astounding shortcomings, to show us that there is a lot of difference between any person and God.

Frankly, ‘Politics Talk’, Nigeria politics is filthy, stinking puddle, full of the wickedest wretches in the world. APC is now cut in a violent thunderstorm as the party walked through the rough terrain of militarized, bastardized, retail corruption and arson filled victory of Nigeria political landscape.

APC has not conjure Nigerians to listen graciously to their fable rhetoric’s defence, because what APC is assuring is neither just nor true. The suspension of Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen as Chief Justice of Nigeria on the pretence of false assets declaration and on the suspicion that Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen will not be sympathetic to APC in the case of Election Petitions Tribunal judgement is now becoming clearer.

Without Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen or not, the court is now handing down judgments. Osun State witnessed a violent knocked at the APC Government House, Osogbo on Friday, March 22nd, 2019 when the election petitions tribunal nullified APC Gboyega Oyetola as governor of the state. Osun State is now in the kitty of PDP ‘Operation Octopus’ onslaught.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje ‘Gandollars’ of Kano State must have consulted The Oracle of Delphi’ to save him from prosecution if voted out, instead thugs from neighbouring states were said to have being brought to unleash terror mayhem and cause disturbances in the re-run Kano State inconclusive election on March 23rd, 2019 across the state.

The ‘Oracle of Delphi’ Inconclusive mantra strategy in Kano State. The imported thugs unleashed on the hapless voters especially in Gama ward, Kano Municipal where ‘Gandollars’ garnered woeful votes previously. It was a day of away from the maddening voting in Kano State.

The co-convener of #OurMuMuDonDo Charly boy Oputa was said to alleged that Festus Keyamo,, Spokesperson of President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation paid him some money that runs into nine digits to release diss song, ‘Another guy man’ to discredit Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the run up to 2019 presidential election.

PDP secured marginal votes that could be easily declared winner in; Sokoto, Bauchi, Rivers, Kano, Benue, and Adamawa States, but The ‘Oracle of Delphi’ decided otherwise. Maybe The ‘Oracle of Delphi’ received more gold and then decided to declare the elections inconclusive?

According to Charles Staple Lewis and his Inklings at Oxford University, [which includes; Owen Barfield, J.A.W Bennet, David Cecil, J.R.R Tolkien, Robert Harvard, Christopher Tolkien, J.H Grant III, Charles William, Roger Lancelyn Green, Warren Lewis, Adam Fox, Hugo Dyson, and Nevil Coghill], said, “Courage is not simply one of the virtue, but the form of every virtue at the testing point……. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin and decay.”

At the core of Nigerians politicians rigging prone strategy is the understanding that it leads to anarchy and unending conflict which will remains inescapable in the Nigeria true governance and stable democratic process.

Like the ‘Oracle of Delphi’, the recent upturning’s of APC victories by election petition tribunals is surely more gold was provided by APC to riggers that enabled it rigged the elections via militarized, vote buying [retail-corruption], arson, ballot boxes snatching and compromising of electoral process.

Is Nigeria ‘Oracle of Delphi’ independent and does & will Nigerians trusted The ‘Oracle of Delphi’s’ independence with it’s inconclusive mantra strategy?

How will ‘Ebora Eko’ responded to March 22nd, 2019 court judgement in against APC’s illegal occupation of Government House, Osogbo?

I hold my breath…..
