In this short, direct to the point opinion article, Professor Oyewale Tomori, a former WHO consultant virologist and Immediate past president of Nigerian Academy of Science looks at the recently held wedding ceremony between the son of President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria and the daughter of the Emir of Bichi in Kano State from a public health perspective.
Two lessons from the 50 to 100 private jets bringing united and sworn ‘enemies’, including leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the wedding of the son of Daura and daughter of Bichi.
One, there is no difference between APC or PDP. They are united in corruption to divide us for their own immoral benefit. Two, in their estimation, the private jets only demonstrate the richness of Nigeria. You must remember one of our Presidents, who out of ignorance, insensitivity or pure callousness made the following statement in response to the World Bank classifying Nigeria as a poor nation.
“..you can be sure we have not seen the end of COVID-19 yet. To every cloud there is a silver lining…..Perhaps, the jets could be put to better use, delivering COVID-19 vaccines to inaccessible locations of the poor, who are the legitimate owners of the money used to buy some of the jets”
He said “If you talk about ownership of private jets, Nigeria will be among the first ten countries, yet they are saying that Nigeria is among the five poorest countries.”
Indeed, this statement has the spiritual confirmation and blessings of our religious leaders who own PRIVATE JETS bought with proceeds from PUBLIC VESTS.
Indeed, while covid-19 is adversely affecting the economy of all nations, it is boosting the pentecostal economy. A pastor of one of the pentecostal business conglomerates was quoted as saying…”I bought my third jet during the covid19 pandemic.”
It was also reported to have prayed for the disease to stay. With the angels of heaven saying a loud Amen to the prayer, you can be sure we have not seen the end of COVID-19 yet. To every cloud there is a silver lining….please check for alerts from the angelic bank of Lucifer
Now, the private jets are parked tarmac idle, with the owners failing to pay demurrage while waiting for the next marriage. Perhaps, the jets could be put to better use, delivering COVID-19 vaccines to inaccessible locations of the poor, who are the legitimate owners of the money used to buy some of the jets.
