Is Nigeria an evil empire? Yes! In my own opinion, President Muhammadu Buhari has turned Nigeria into evil empire. Since Buhari’s arrival in Aso Rock, the evidence that he has turned Nigeria into evil empire grows every day. The barbaric clampdown on critics of Buhari’s evil regime makes Sani Abacha, Nigeria’s erstwhile brutal military maximum dictator, a ‘progressive democratic president’. Buhari as president in a democratic government has taken over all the three branches of government- executive, judiciary, and the legislature. He now controls all the three branches of government. Separation of powers, checks and balances have been completely wiped out. Judges now wait on Buhari to write their judgment. The National Assembly has been pocketed.

He saw into the future and continues to prepare himself for the role of emancipator of Africa into the modern digital world.
He was born on February 16, 1971 in Nigeria. Throughout his adult life till present, he has consistently supported social justice and fairness for all. Even in the most difficult circumstances that include threat to his life and his family, Sowore never relented and testimonies abound of his doggedness.
