ALERT ON KANO: Tomorrow is Friday. We have credible information that Jonathanians in Kano and their agents have received huge sums of money to get youths to protest massively and cause mayhem after the Juma’at prayers.
The Jonathanians hope the protests will lead to violence, destruction and loss of lives, while the federal security agencies watch helplessly, thus giving President Jonathan the excuse to declare a state of emergency in Kano State, remove Governor Kwankwaso and depose Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
This plan will fail. By God’s Grace, tomorrow’s Juma’at prayers in Kano will be uneventful except for special prayers for the repose of Late Emir Ado Bayero.
Whoever sold this evil plan to the Jonathanians should know that those who fight the will of God will end in ignominious perdition.
Those wish for violence, plan it against innocent people, or use the offspring of the poor, needy and illiterate by putting them recklessly in harm’s way will face the wrath of Almighty God.
I join others in appealing to Governor Kwankawaso and the citizens of Kano to maintain the peace and good order that exists in Kano, and exercise restraint in the face of blood-thirsty Jonathanian provocation.
We shall overcome these Jonathanian challenges and Kano and indeed the whole of Nigeria will prosper. The enemies of our nation and people that pretend to be leaders during the day, while planning the murder of citizens at night, will reap what they are sowing, by God’s Grace.
