NATIONAL BROADCAST BY H.E MUHAMMADU BUHARI PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA ON THE 58TH INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY, 1ST OCTOBER, 2018
1. Fellow Nigerians, BUHARI SPEAKS TO THE NATION.
NATIONAL BROADCAST BY H.E MUHAMMADU BUHARI PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA ON THE 58TH INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY, 1ST OCTOBER, 2018
1. Fellow Nigerians, Today is a day of celebration and solemn reflection. It is the anniversary of the day Nigerians realized one of the most cherished of human desires – the desire for freedom. We, therefore, give thanks to and remember our founding fathers who labored so hard and sacrificed so much to build and bequeath to us this wonderful nation. It is our duty to consolidate this great legacy.
The nation they bequeathed to us, the Fulanis, is being consolidated by me.
2. On this first October date and on the eve of the start of the general election cycle, we should do well to reflect on what binds us together and the great strength our diversity bestows on us. Ours is an ambitious nation, and, as citizens we have every right to look forward to the future with confidence and optimism which are well founded, considering where we find ourselves today.
The only ones looking to the future with optimism are the Fulanis as they seek to complete the Jihad, started by Uthman Dan Fodio.
3. There has been a steady improvement in the security situation in the North East. We remain committed to ending the crisis and make the North East safe for all.
As we make the North East safe for Fulanis, we will create havoc in the North Central as part of the Fulani plan to dominate Nigeria.
4. Our thoughts and prayers are always with the victims of the Boko Haram’s atrocities and their families. Beyond that, we know that the goals of the Boko Haram terrorists include capturing territories, destroying our democracy, and denying our children the right to education. We will not allow them to succeed.
INTERPRETATION: As I pray for the Muslims killed in the North East, the infidels being killed in the North Central can go to hell. The cost of education is unaffordable to the masses unless you prefer Almajiri education as advocated by Emir Muhammad Sanusi II.
5. I want at this point to pay tribute to the men and women of our armed forces, the Police and other security and law enforcement agencies, who have been working under the most difficult conditions to keep the country safe. In the process, many have made the supreme sacrifice.
INTERPRETATION: I am paying a special tribute to members of the armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice, helping Fulani Terrorist Herdsmen achieve the Fulani Agenda.
6. As their Commander -In- Chief, I assure these our gallant men and women that I will continue to empower them by deepening their professionalism and providing all the necessary force multipliers and enablers required for them to prevail on the field. I am looking into all reported cases of inadequacies in relation to their entitlements, their welfare and those of their families.
INTERPRETATION: These multipliers and enablers will enable them to achieve my aim of Fulanizing and Islamizing Nigeria in the shortest possible time. This is the main reason I am seeking re-election.
7. We are diversifying away from reliance on oil to increased manufacturing capacity, solid minerals development, and agriculture.
INTERPRETATION: We are using the oil resources in the South South and South East to increase manufacturing capacity, develop solid minerals and agriculture in the North East and North West, while simultaneously prospecting for oil in the North East and North West.
8. Efforts are on course in the Niger Delta to clean up polluted lands, restore hopes of the youths in the region and re-establish livelihoods, and strengthen their capacity to guarantee for themselves and for our country a brighter future.
INTERPRETATION: All the Niger Delta youths will be dead by the time this promise will be fulfilled.
9. The age-long conflict between herders and farmers that was being exploited by those seeking to plant the seeds of discord and disunity amongst our people, is being addressed decisively. We will sustain and continue to support the commendable efforts by all including civil society organizations, local and states governments and our traditional and religious leaders in finding durable solution to this problem.
INTERPRETATION: The conflict will be resolved as soon as I turn the country into a big cattle ranch. Cows are more valuable than people. In Fulani culture, people are killed to bury cows, other cultures kill cows to bury people.
10. This being a transhumance issue, we are working with countries in our region that are also facing similar difficulties to complement our common efforts. In this context I must warn that the perpetrators of murder and general mayhem in the name of defending or protecting herders or farmers will face the full wrath of the law. Meanwhile, we urge all peace-loving Nigerians to reject any simplistic portrayal, at home or abroad, of this conflict as either religious or ethnic based.
INTERPRETATION: We are transporting foreign Fulanis into Nigeria from countries in our region to complete this Jihad started by Uthman Dan Fodio.
11. We are one of the countries in the world most affected by environmental degradation, because of climate change. We are signatories to almost all conventions and agreements aimed at slowing down the effect of climate change and mitigating its now evident consequences.
INTERPRETATION: Signing does not mean implementation. Have I obeyed the Nigerian Constitution and you expect me to be guided by signed foreign documents? Walahi Tahali. As polluting generators generate electricity, poison, and kill Nigerians with carbon monoxide, emit greenhouse gases and retard industrial development, I guess that we are doing our best to stem global warming. Any person who thinks she/he can hide under the United Nation Declaration of Self Determination to demand a referendum in Nigeria, will be disappeared. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a good example.
12. The consequences on lives and livelihoods of the shrinking of the Lake Chad and the pollution caused by oil exploitation activities alone make it mandatory on us to be at the forefront of the struggle for a safer and more sustainable environment. We will continue to mobilise international support for our efforts in this regard.
INTERPRETATION: As Lake Chad shrinks, Fulani Herdsmen need to find greener pastures for their cows. Lake Jos, Lake Nimbo, Lake Benue, Lake Taraba, and Lake Adamawa are good alternatives. Our international Fulani Herdsmen cum Terrorists are helping us solve the Fulani water and pasture problems using Nigerian resources.
13. We are making progress in the fight against corruption and recovery of stolen public funds and assets despite vicious and stiff resistance. The shameful past practice, of the brazen theft of billions of Naira is no more. Shady oil deals and public contracts that were never delivered have become things of the past.
INTERPRETATION: It is illegal to be corrupt unless you are Fulani, a member of the Cabal or the APC (Another Platform for Corruption). For the few corrupt people who have not joined the APC, you have till the end of year to declare for the APC. APC recycles the recovered money into private coffers.
14. Consequently, and this is very evident across the country, we have done more with less in infrastructural developments. Roads, railways, major bridges, schools, energy and power, air and sea ports, welfare of serving and retired personnel both civilian and military including payment of legacy debt such as pension arrears, have been attended to.
INTERPRETATION: As we borrow money from China and Bank Sukuk to develop our infrastructure, these may be taken over by the China and Turkey, when we default as expected. Zambia is a good example. We attended to some legacy debts such as pension arrears to bribe the electorate.
15. There is now an enabling environment for local and foreign investment in Nigeria. We are building a rules-based system – a level playing field that is free from fixers and intermediaries. This is the cornerstone to help genuine investors and honest consumers, and the platform that will allow for the real reforms that we intend to deliver over the coming years.
INTERPRETATION: Absolutely correct. The enabling environment has been created for the investment of foreign Fulanis and their cows in Nigeria. No foreign investor who is non-Fulani will invest in a country that is sliding down world transparency and corruption rankings, and ravaged by Boko Haram, Al Qaeda Haram and Fulani Terrorist Herdsmen.
16. We are gradually strengthening the economy with a stable Naira and falling inflation rate. We are building an economy that is moving away from over reliance on oil. Consequently we have witnessed massive return to farms and seen bumper harvest, despite recurrent floods across the country.
INTERPRETATION: Bumper harvest really means bumper poverty as Nigeria has the largest number of poor people in the world.
17. These positive developments are the result of our collective pursuit of a common vision through hard work and dedication, after the missed opportunities and disappointments that followed the return to democracy in 1999.
INTERPRETATION: The only positive development is the Fulanization and Islamization of Nigeria.
18. At the forefront, have always been our youths. They have been at the vanguard of the struggle for independence. They fought in the war to keep the country united. And it was they who kept alive the struggle for democracy and human rights in our country at times when these were at risk, especially following the June 12th 1993 election and the historic 2015 election process.
INTERPRETATION: Clueless and gullible youths. I will use you again in 2019 as I used you in 2015. They are too lazy to know the difference between Dictatorship and Democracy.
19. Even today, our youths play a central role in Nigeria’s continuing progress and developments in all fields of our national endeavor –technology, agriculture, mining, engineering and especially the creative arts. Together we are building a more diverse, inclusive, and self-reliant economy.
INTERPRETATION: Agreed. Incompetence is becoming more and more diverse as Merit is overridden by ethnic and religious considerations leading to regression and retrodevelopment.
20. In the past three years we have introduced many policies and programs targeted at youth development and youth empowerment. We support the ‘not too young to run’ legislation aimed at giving the youths greater say in our national politics and governance.
INTERPRETATION: At 85 years, I am “not too young” to run.
21. The school feeding program in primary schools is aimed at encouraging enrolment and attendance. We are building on what we have already introduced to support schools and universities to which funds have recently been released for upgrade of facilities, training programs for our entrepreneurs, and rehabilitation schemes for victims of terrorism and human trafficking.
INTERPRETATION: The school feeding program has enriched APC stalwarts and Chieftains for the 2019 election. Which universities are being supported? The ones on perpetual strike? We gave the youths wheelbarrows and tea stands under the N-Power Program. We rehabilitate only Islamic victims of terrorism as initiated by Emir Muhammad Sanusi II during his tenure as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. The Infidels do not need rehabilitation.
22. Fellow Nigerians, now we have in our hands technology that is a powerful tool that we can and should use for knowledge and understanding. As with other countries, we must also learn how to manage those tendencies that, instead, look to abuse new technologies to provoke passions and stir tensions.
INTERPRETATION: Any post on social media critical of me, my government, or the APC is hate speech.
23. Never have we faced such a challenge. We must all rise to the responsibility of shutting out those disruptive and corrosive forces that hide in today’s world of social media. We need critical minds and independent thinking, to question and question until we are satisfied, we have the facts. Otherwise, all the progress we have made as a democracy since 1999 is at stake.
INTERPRETATION: We will clamp down on social media in the run up to the 2019 election to perfect our rigging strategy.
24. I have committed myself many times to ensure that elections are fully participatory, free, and fair and that the Independent National Electoral Commission will be exactly INDEPENDENT and properly staffed and resourced. The ballot box is how we make our choice for the governments that rule in our name.
INTERPRETATION: The Fulani controlled Independent National Election Commission is exactly what it says. It acts independently and only upholds pro-Fulani interests. If I wanted it to be independent, I would have made the composition reflective of Nigeria’s ethnic diversity. INEC do an incredible job protecting Fulani interests in the recently concluded Osun Gubernatorial Election.
25. Fellow Nigerians, developing a thriving democracy is not an easy task. There can be no quick fixes or short cuts. These are the most important lessons that we have learnt in our 58 years as an independent nation.
INTERPRETATION: Nigeria is developing a thriving Dictatorship and not a Democracy. Court orders are routinely flouted, and people detained without trial or disappeared. Democracy and Dictatorship are incompatible.
26. At the international level, we remain a responsible and respected member of the international community, playing active positive roles within ECOWAS, the African Union and the United Nations as well as all other regional and international organizations and institutions of which we are members.
INTERPRETATION: So respected that President Donald Trump had to publicly warn me to stop killing Christians. So respected that the UN, EU, and International Observers concluded that the Osun Gubernatorial Election set the “standards” for elections anywhere in the world.
27. We will continue to support initiatives aimed at addressing the challenges of our times: global and regional crises and conflicts, terrorism, trans-border crime, climate change, human rights, gender equality, development, poverty and inequality within and between nations, etc. In this context, we are working hard to achieve both the AU 2063 Agenda for socio-economic transformation of our continent; and the UN 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, which together aim at addressing these challenges.
INTERPRETATION: The AU 2063 Agenda and UN 2030 Agenda are just documents. Currently, Nigeria has the largest population of poor people in the world exceeding India. https://qz.com/africa/1313380/nigerias-has-the-highest-rate-of-extreme-poverty-globally/
28. Fellow Nigerians, as we celebrate the 58th Anniversary of our independence, we know we are on the right path. Although we have our differences, they count for far less than the values, virtues and common aspirations that unite us as a nation. We have so much for which we should be grateful, and in which we should rightly take pride. Our journey is not finished but we have come a long way.
INTERPRETATION: We Fulanis have much to be grateful as we have come a long way towards achieving our aspirations of dominating Nigeria. We must be united, no restructuring ever, to enable me to use the oil resources in the South to develop the Far North.
29. I want to assure you that as President, I will continue to work tirelessly to promote, protect and preserve what really matters: a united, peaceful, prosperous and secure Nigeria, where all, irrespective of background, can aspire to succeed.
INTERPRETATION: As President, I shall continue to unite all Nigerians under Fulani hegemony.
Thank you. I wish you a memorable independence celebration.
Celebrate in darkness, with whatever you can scrape from your pantry.
