      Tijjani Muhammad Musa's photo.@112teejay TWEETS ON THE 293 GIRLS & WOMEN RESCUED FROM SAMBISA FOREST.

      So who are these 200 girls, 93 women rescued by the Nigerian Army from Sambisa Forest if they are not the much sought after Chibok Girls?

      Hmmm, so how many other girls & women are actually abducted & held in that Sambisa Forest? All we ever heard about was the Chibok Girls!

      Are these rescued girls and women non-existent in Nigeria that no one ever made mention of them all this while? So where did they come from?

      But why were these 293 never mentioned, accounted 4 or worried over? It's all about Chibok Girls this, Chibok Girls that! Why only Chibok Girls?

      As we await rescue or return of the Chibok Girls, I think we should re-harshtag that ‪#‎BringBackOurGirls‬ harshtag to #BringBackOurGirls&Others.

And for those who wish us more, we wish you all even much more than you wish us...

Remain for always, blessed :)


Tijjani Muhammad Musa's photo. I watched the Presidential Media Chat on NTA this February 11th (Wednesday) evening with President Jonathan dodging some of the most important questions asked him. Like:

Why should he be quiet about the declaration of war upon Nigeria by the Niger Deltan thugs if he should be voted out of office?

Does he trust Jega to conduct a free and fair election?

Would he force the electoral boss to go on the 3 months terminal leave or would he allow him to conduct the elections?

What is his assessment of Gen. Buhari, his major opponent in the elections?

Will the Chibok girls be rescued in the 6 weeks military coalision campaign? Will each child be accounted for?

His back-pedalling on the "Stealing is not corruption" saga, trying to explain it away by shift the buck on to Justice Mustapha's table... :)
Anyway, beyond any reasonable doubt now, none is left in doubt that the man does not deserve anymore time as our president. Yet, "We need more time" was his chorus line.

And what's with him and the word "Architect"? He repeated that word intermittently throughout the media chat, as an architect I couldn' help, but notice the frequency.

The panel of journalists (not Jona-lists) throwing the questions were impressive, except of course the lady who happened to the chat's anchor. She was so glaringly being unprofessional with her patronizing moves. It was embarrassing to say the least.


Tijjani Muhammad Musa's photo.Poetic Tee "Here, take a sip" has been freshly served in here, in an Anthology of food-related poems.

What more?

The Tee is available in 2 delicious flavors too.

1. FURA DA NONO Poetic Tee "Here, take a sip"

"Fura da nono!" she'll loudly, hawkly announce
One of north's best delicacies, ten kobo to an ounce
Grounded balls of cooked, pounded millets, made to
Swim in a pool of raw, rich, refine white yoghouto.

Carried carefully, covered in a colourful calabash
Balancing the thrill precariously, a woman brash
Her regalia craftily sewn off a culture cherished
Where many have allowed theirs to be perished.

"Fura", farmed by men, made by women
Milk, milked by the skilled, skimmed often
Old original recipé, tested, trusted to quench
A midday hunger, served by a maiden wench.

Many add sweet to the mix, stirring to taste
Making buds water, as eyes savor the paste
But the old love it sugarfree, untinged, untainted
As each scoopful gets a stomach satisfactorily satiated.

They come from four corners of the world
Mankind adventurous, in search of its mold
Its aroma teases noses, then pleases them
It's king tongue that celebrates the palatable mayhem.

2. EBOLA, I HATE YOU! Poetic Tee "Here, take a sip"

What calamity, what absurdity
How can it be so terribly denying
How am I suppose to survive this
This might as well, equally kill me too.

Can you imagine this wickedness?
Placing a ban, a mean embargo
Upon my favorite of meals, me cousin
Nay, call me not a cannibal please.

So what if he has five fingers each
Two eyes, two ears and one nose
Yes, we do look alike, so what?
He's delicious to taste when cooked.

Not only that, I am also to keep off
The night flyer, right? Gosh, you are
Surely after my carcass! To do what with?
Grilled or fried, my mouth's salivating already.

Look, look, they are both deliciously safe
Lies, just lies that they harbor a virus
Propaganda to deny hunters their livelihood
And me, my most sought after delicacies.

Ebola this, ebola that! How many deaths in
Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Senegal?
Now in America, Belgium, Spain, Germany
Do they consume monkeys and bats too?

A neighbor was touched with witchcraft
She hates bushmeat that I know for sure
Yet, they say she has Ebola virus. How?
She vomits blood in quantum sputum.

I, Akagadogunkudiata consume baboon
For lunch and dinner, sweet biomboli bats
For breakfast, grass-cutter in between
Ebola, for tainting my meals with death! I hate you!

11 HAIKUs FROM HARAAM, MAKKAH Poetic Tee "here, take a sip"

Heard one reciting
Surah Ar-Rahaman, pure
His heart he offered.


Cold, windy Friday
Fajr salat said in peace
Welcome sunshine.

Stands taller than all
Black shroud, gold calligraphy
Symbol of Islam


Bare beauty, best black block
Square, solid, sound, serene stone
Holy Haraam.


One black gem attracts
From the east, west, north and south
All Muslims converge.


I sit before it
Its aura overwhelms mine
What absolute bliss.


Millions walk round it
A billion more adore it
Pure love befits it.


Salat call echoes
Pulls to its magnetism
"Allahu Akbar!"


Pure in origin
Survives the three dimensions
Then, now, forever.


One salat at it
One hundred thousand better
Than one elsewhere.


Through ages gone by
Stands its majestic grace
As men kiss it black.

Image result for hon baraka saniI had about the unconfirmed reports that Hon. Baraka Sani of PDP is planning to decamp to APC yesterday, it didn’t come to me as a surprise, though many others who heard about it were actually shocked to their bone marrows.

When I heard Kano PDP Candidates in next Saturday’s State Elections congratulating President-Elect Gen. Muhammad Buhari on radio and telling Kanawa (Kano people) that they are also with Buhari and so people should please vote for them as Governor and State Assembly members even while still being in PDP, I found such a move unethical and downright hypocritical and mean. So, I expressed my mind on my FB wall in Hausa. 
Again I just saw Senator Abdallah Wali PDP’s candidate who is running against Hon. Aminu Waziri Governorship seat in Sokoto doing the same thing, i.e. attaching his picture with that of General Buhari on the same poster and soliciting for votes against the peoples’ General’s party. 

2 days back I heard about mass decamping from PDP to APC in Gombe and other states and today I heard high ranking PDP officials and some Jonathan’s ex-kitchen cabinet members such as Ahmed Gulak, Isa Tafida Mapindi (Deputy Director Media Jonathan Campaign Organization) and many others also expressing their intentions to migrate or outright moving to the APC, I covered my face in shame (for them, for obviously they are incapable of experiencing it themselves) and wondered what kind of politicians we have in Nigeria.

Seeing this crazy, shameless and ideological-less political migration trending in Nigeria, I feel sad realizing that our so-called politicians do not know what politics is all about. They take it as child’s play, “a game” according to Doyin Okupe, who offered to be called “A Bastard” if APC should last beyond a year as a party I Nigeria, only for him to come and swallow his vomit and not want to be called a bastard any more, despite APC winning the 2015 elections. What a shameful, spineless stand for him to take. 

Also the loosers of this 2015 presidential elections (PDP) have no intentions of letting us, the opposition, who took them down to enjoy our hard, very hard earned victory. By crossing over to join our celebrations, they want us to forget the evil machinations they visited upon our leader and candidate Muhammad Buhari, our physical and mental state of mind as well as our collective destiny as the citizens of this country.

Image result for Isa Tafida MafindiAnyway, I’ll reserve the rest of my words till we completely wrap-up this coming Guber and State Assembly elections, then we will come forth with what we believe should be done with these influx of PDP decampees. Quarantining them for starters would not be a bad idea.
