Donald Trump And The White Supremacists Interpretation Of The Bible

The Face Of Christianity - Intimidation And Slavery

When Donald Trump was elected president of the USA, many Christians in Africa, and particularly in Nigeria, saw in Trump the reincarnation of their Jesus.

They started trumpeting how ‘the Donald’ has ordered that prayers must be said before official functions are carried out at the white house. How he has started early morning devotion at the white house; etc.

But, is Mr Trump a Christian? Yes, he is a Christian like every other white supremacist. Do they read the bible? Yes; only Romans 13:1-7 (1 - “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”)

Nigeria’s Oil Subsidy Is Nothing But A Scam

Rep. Femi Gbaja, Mercedes G-wagon and his wife
During the 2015 presidential campaigns, as a presidential candidate, Mr Buhari rhetorically stated that there was nothing like oil subsidy. In fact, ‘I don’t know what subsidy is’ he concluded.

Now that he is the president of Nigeria, Mr Buhari is subsidising the same petroleum products that he claimed never existed. So, what changed?

Perhaps Buhari was ill-informed when he asserted his statement. Maybe he was insincere when he made his declaration. Whatever the reason, by setting aside funds to subsidise petroleum products, the president has confirmed that, indeed, this phenomenon known as oil subsidy exists in Nigeria.

Technically, 2019 Election Will Be The Easiest Time To Become The President Of Nigeria

The decision by President Buhari to seek re-election in 2019 is simply to tell those people, including former president Obasanjo, who dare advice or instruct him not to seek re-election in 2019, that it is within his constitutional right to do so.

And I believe Buhari knows very well that he will lose a free and fair presidential election in 2019. But as someone who is obsessed with Goodluck Jonathan, Buhari wouldn't mind becoming the second incumbent president to lose an election in Nigeria.
