The United States of America president-elect, Mr. Donald J. Trump is leaving no stone unturned in making good his campaign promise. The United States business mogul during his presidential election campaign for the U.S White House race has consistently frowned at the rate of illegal migrants into the United States, and vowed to deport them if he becomes the president. His statement attracted a very wide range of condemnation across the world. Some called him a racist, others said he is xenophobic, and he lacks the temperament to lead a country as the United States of America. However, this did not deter the americans, particularly majority of the white american voters who believe his idealogy and bought into his philosophy from voting for him, and he eventually emerged the winner of the election with those campaign promises. Although, Donald Trump won the keenly contested election with the electoral college votes on the platform of the republican party, also known as the “conservatives” in the United States, against his strongest rival, Mrs. Hilary Clinton, who contested on the platform of the democratic party, which are also known as the “liberals” in the U.S election. Hence, Mr. Trump received a lot of bashing and so many knocks from both the liberals and their ardent supporters all over the world for being undemocratic with his comments but he shocked the whole world by still emerging the winner with that campaign promise a lot of people considered as racist comment. One may rightly say, may be Mr. Trump spoke the mind of majority of americans by telling them what they want to hear, hence his emergence as the 45th president-elect of America. Now, for those who thinks Mr. Donald Trump may renege on his campaign promises or tone down his comments on deporting illegal migrants, having won the election should better start getting ready to leave the United States of America because the president-elect is not going back on his words, and he’s leaving no stone unturned to make real his threats. The U.S business mogul and president-elect had on monday, November 14, 2016 repeated it that he will deport or jail three million illegal migrants when he’s sworn-in on 20th January, 2017. Of this 3million illegal migrants, africans are more, and particularly nigerians, which he specifically mentioned. I believe it is time for african leaders to brace up and offer good governance to its citizenry. Love Donald Trump or loathe him, we all can attest to the fact that Africa is backward in terms of development, and who underdeveloped it, its the leaders, because of their laziness and greed. When the leaders steal money, they run to America and other countries to bank or invest it, consequently improving the economy of those countries and leaving theirs impoverished. Hence, this makes the citizens become so desperate in search of some greener pastures in other countries either by hook or by crook. I sincerely believe that they should all come back and work to develop their own country, so that Africa, and particularly Nigeria will be as developed as those other countries they run to. What do you think?
Nigeria’s nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka may have gotten himself into trouble, as the controversy sorrounding his reckless statements prior to the November 8th 2016 United States presidential election seems to be generating a lot of reactions from nigerians and people all over the world. The nobel laureate winner had vowed that he will lacerate his United States green card if peradventure Donald Trump wins the presidential election. This statement did not go down well with so many nigerians, especially supporters of the U.S business mogul and now the president elect. A lot of people were outraged because such reckless statement was unbecoming of a man of the status of Professor Wole Soyinka, who is a nobel prize winner in Literature. On the 9th of November 2016, the republican candidate, Mr. Donald Trump was declared winner of the keenly contested election having polled the highest number of electoral college votes. Hence, the media and those who were enraged by the comment of the nobel laureate were expecting him to make do his vow, when he was confronted with his comment he disappointed his admirers and the whole world by reneging on his promise, and said he’ll splitter his green passport and not his U.S green card if Donald Trump is sworn-in on the 20th of January 2017. What do you make of this? Does Prof. Wole Soyinka have integrity problem?
The republican candidate in the United States November 8, 2016 presidential election, Donald J.Trump, in one of his campaign visits had reportedly told the agitators of the republic of Biafra waving the biafran flag at him, that those of them who wants Biafra republic should consider it a reality in his government. He also said he’ll give all the necessary support to make sure Biafra becomes a reality. Well all know how powerful and influential the United State president is, when it comes to world politics, and influencing the United Nations in decision making. What does this portend for the future of Nigeria if this promise becomes real? And how will this affect the relationship between the nigerian government and the republican candidate, should incase he emerges the winner of the election? Only time will tell, after the November 8 election. LETS WAIT AND SEE!
A Stanford court in Florida, United States of America has brazingly discharged guilty Mr. George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is an american man who is famous for fatally shooting a young black american boy, known as Trayvon Martins on February 26, 2012 in Stanford Florida, United States. Inspite of all appeals from parents of the young boy and other black americans for justice, the Stanford court went ahead to set free Mr. Zimmerman. What does this act portends for the judiciary? Can the world still get justice from our courts? #NoJusticeNoPeace.
The legalization of same-sex or gay marriage in 38 states of the United States and some European countries is a depiction of the fact that we have a failed and barbaric generation. Same-sex marriage dates back to the generation of Sodom and Gomorrah. Then, it was called ‘Sodomy’ and those involved in such immoral acts were called sodomites. Their unwholesome, ignoble and immoral acts infuriated God, that he had to destroy that generation with fire. Presently, this generation has immorally degenerated to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Which makes it very barbaric. Legalizing same-sex marriage is a symbol of total depraivity of man, because it negates the natural principles of on which the world was created, and a total alienation from the original plan of God for man. What legacies are we really leaving behind for our future generation? What are we really teaching our kids, that same-sex marriage is good, and there’s nothing wrong about it? I think we’ve descended so low, even below the level of animals. I strongly believe that this generation has failed, if we really cannot build a good and lasting legacies for the future generation.
