    Great article by FFK. Leaves one deep in thoughts.

    I refuse to believe that Mr Fani-Kayode wrote this. Whilst everyone is free to support whomever, conspiracy theories and cherry-picked information as above is just wrong.

  3. Femi Fani Kayode is a serial attention seeker who speaks from his backside, anyone that takes him seriously needs their head examined.

    I wish Mrs Clinton is America’s president! She was actually my favorite back then. The world is too global 4 us not care about wot’s going on around us. Obama hasn’t impressed @ all. In all ramifications. Let’s keep sentiments out. But in this election, I have no favorites. Good luck to Obama anyway. This article is FFK’s opinion, and I think it’s finely written. I love it.

  5. To FF-K. You may be wrong but at least you have written boldly and succintly. You have given food for thought especially as you speak of Obama and allude to the anti-Christ in the same breath.
    As far as him bowing low to the King of Saudi Arabia, I really would urge you not to read too much into it; afterall, Obama's family is partially Muslim. Did you not for one moment think that he may have traced his lineage back to the royal family in Saudi Arabia? In that case, the present king is his too and he will bow in obeiance. The only one that will not bow before another is a king himself, and as Obama is certainly not a king, not even a king of America or even this world (yet?) he must bow before kings and not men.
    You speak well about "the beginning of the end" for America. According to economic watchers of the Western world and the growing third world, in the next 25 years or so, America along with Germany, France, The United Kingdom and much of western Europe will cease to be world powers and this will shift to the likes of China, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, India and believe it or not, Nigeria.
    Where I disagree with your line of thinking FF-K, is where you ask questions regarding Obama's 'spiritual powers' I daresay he has none. There is such a thing called "huricane season' just as there is harmattan season in Nigeria , and summer and winter in the UK and Europe. These seasons arrive at specific times of the year; however climate changes are affecting the seasons so much so they may arrive early and stay longer or vice-versa. The American Presidential election happens to coincide with the hurricane season or at least a time when storms become stronger and sometimes, fatal.
    I appreciate your opinion, as I hope you will mine. Americans too have different opinions and the world will see their differences when the final results are released.
    Thank you.

    This is a ludicrous write-up full of conjecture at the very best and hallucinatory hot air at its very worst. The lowest point being to blame Obama for two tropical storms. I don’t always agree with Mr Fani-Kayode, but have always respected the thinking process that goes into his write-ups. Like the gentleman above, I am not sure Mr Fani-Kaoyode wrote this and if he did, I hope its satirical and if not, I am deeply disappointed. By the way I am indifferent to the US election,

  7. Benny Bing says:

    This is a very ignorant and dumb piece. There is nothing great about it and he sounds like an upset republican. Well this is an opinion piece. With that said, f your opinion.

  8. Victor Asemota(@asemota) says:

    With all due respect, were you drunk when you wrote this? This is the biggest pile of bullshit I have ever seen on this blog or anywhere for that matter.

  9. Kem Ojiji says:

    I feel compelled to scream on this page…”Who wrote this bullshit?” If you don’t like Obama, put together facts and sensible reasons why he should not be President. You sound very ignorant and superstitious. So Obama is now anti-Christ? I can’t stop laughing…this article comes off as something written by an old, illiterate man from my village. Pls spell his name correctly if that’s the only thing you do right!

  10. Femi Fani-Kayode is a big fool. He is not only myopic but ignorant as well.

  11. Daré Makun says:

    Ridiculous analyses to say the least. This guy, within the same logic with which he has analyzed Obama and blamed him for the "elements of nature", he should also answer questions about whom he bowed to when he was heading those ministries in Nigeria and why things went wrong in the ministries of aviation especially and are still wrong..how much of Nigerian culture was promoted when he headed the ministry of culture? Ridiculous..blame one man for storms and the economic crises that was years in the making; ever heard of climate change?

  12. daniel okeyemi says:

    My estimation of Fani Kayode has always been low from the time he was minister during Obasanjo regime. He just rubber stamped it.

  13. daniel okeyemi says:

    Fani kayode is an attention seeker. He write-ups whilst always sensational were utter rubbish and idiotic at best. He is phsycotic and very manipulative. He is a compulsive liar. I bet he is doing this for one reason which is to gain attention. And the reason can only be to seek political post in Nigeria. Please do not think for one minute he believe in what he has written. He is probably laughing his head off now. But I hope that he is found out for who he is for real.

    This is what happens when people have nothing to do at the weekend, they write semi literate nonsense and claim, they are asking questions.
    Can you quote directly when Pres Obama apologised? In which country and the full quote?
    I'm not sure what the mans relationship to elemental forces are but just for balance could you also include a list of hurricane occurrences for the past 10 years in the US and their month of occurrence. Can we then identify the current leaders of the US a the time and draw the appropriate meteorological and/ or spiritual conclusions.
    The legal right to abortion has been in place in the US since the 70's not a single US President since then has sought to oppose or overturn it. Please quote one if I am incorrect.
    Same sex marriage was legalised by individual US states not the US Federal government, please point to the legislation proposed, passed or championed by Pres Obama in this respect.
    The same man who a few sentences ago was apologising and bowing to Muslims is now killing them with drone strikes? Interesting. And Pakistan was unfriendly before now? Or Afghanistan was a peaceful land of milk and honey?
    Procrastination towards Iran eh? Is it the same Iran where people are rioting under crippling sanctions? As opposed to North Korea which under the last US Govt. tested several devices and got repeated shipments of aid? What is the US meant to do in Syria? Invade? Shebi you'll be dragging your well fed body to go and fight in another mans civil war?
    The US economy just went into deficit now? The previous 8 years nko? that one you didn't notice?
    The Muslim Brotherhood won an election, Pres Obama should have somehow nullified that election abi? June 12 style all the way from Washington DC? And when he declares Boko Haram a terrorist entity they will beg for mercy and go home?
    The killing of 4 US personnel in Libya is the personal fault of Pres Obama, so I guess the 43 killed under Bush and the over 200 killed in one incident under Pres Reagan are their personal responsibilities? In the latter case the reaction of President Reagan wasn't to go after the perpetrators, it was to pull out all US troops and personnel and run away.
    he is also directly responsible for the situation in Mali, obviously the Tauregs, MNLA, Ansar el Dine, Malian army and government had no part to play, they were just waiting for instructions from Pres. Obama. Likewise when the Russians invaded Georgia under the last US govt, that was most definitely, absolutely not a sign of US weakness and impotence.
    In conclusion, if you combine strong kai kai with 12 year old superstitious nonsense and a broadband connection you just might end up writing some of the most juvenile crap I've seen on an allegedly educated Nigerians blog in a long time. And my friend there is stiff competition. Well done. Now go and sleep.

    I’ve noticed that in Nigeria, all you need to make the average Nigerian believe that you are intelligent is a reasonable knowledge of the English language. Add the ability to write an article without making classic grammatical errors. Stuff the article with drivel and you have Nigerians applauding you for a “well thought out piece”. It’s apparent from this article that Fani-Kayode,knows nothing of US foreign policies,doesn’t even understand how the Federal Govt of The US works(because the ignoramus is most likely comparing it to Nigeria-a govt that is only federal in name)doesn’t know anything about meteorology. And is absolutely in the dark about current affairs,and has a penchant for making wild unsubstantiated claims that don’t hold up to the most perfunctory analysis. Yet you have pple applauding him! I’m surprised he didn’t blame Obama for the flooding of the lower Niger states while he was at it. Or road accidents in Nigeria. Or Dame Patience’s illness. Or cult activity in our higher institutions. And to think that a person with this kind of mentality and warped reasoning was once a Minister in this country! That explains why we are in this mess. Because Fani would rather blame another person busy running his nation for things happening over here. So Boko Haram got their bombs and arms from Libya?He makes all these pseudo-clever statements. You’d think he was in attendance with a tape rule to measure the extent of Obama’s supposed obeisance to the Arab King.. Here him quibbling about human rights records? Like Nigeria has a better human rights record. Why am I even bothering with this I gat work to go joor…rubbish write-up. Pompous,jumped-up panjandrum.

  16. I am resisting the urge to dignify this asinine& stupid write-up with a reply. Femi Fani Kayode is a simile of all dt is wrong with Nigeria: superstition, religious& racial bigotry,anti-intellectualism,buffoonery, ineptitude and self-righteousness. How I wish he could burn in the same hell picture he so stupidly painted

  17. babs oye says:

    One good thing about this guy is that he writes; many of us better educated than he is would always fail to write but ever so willing to be a critique. He may be right with his thoughts, and may be wrong. At least his thoughts are on paper for posterity to judge; and where is yours fellow African critiques. Let’s get our bums fixed and write something for posterity to put aside FFK’s and be informed. Let us wise up, please/ Thank you.

  18. MR JERRY says:

    WAIT A MINUTE, IS STEALING OF PUBLIC FUNDS NOT AN ANTI-CHRIST TENDENCY? IN THAT CASE, FFK MUST BE AN ANTICHRIST TOO FOR ALL OUR MONEY HE STOLE. HONESTLY, I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THAT AN EDUCATED AFRICAN CAN BELIEVE THE RACIST NONSENSE ABOUT OBAMA BEING AN ANTI-CHRIST THAT HAS FLOODED THE INTERNET OF RECENT. FOR FFK TO BELIEVE ALL THAT NONSENSE AND BE PARODYING THEM GOES TO SHOW HIS LOW IQ AS A PERSON. NO SERIOUS MEDIA PUBLISHES THIS KIND OF CONSPIRACY THEORIES AND NO SERIOUS WRITER PICKS HIS PEN TO WRITE SUCH IDLE TALKS THAT ARE WORSE THAN STORIES ABOUT SEEING GHOSTS. FRANKLY MY JUDGMENT IS THAT FEMI FANI-KAYODE IS SICK. VERY, VERY SICK UPSTAIRS AND NEEDS URGENT PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION. MAYBE IT SHOULD BE PSYCHIC EVALUATION SINCE HE BELIEVES SO MUCH IN THE PARANORMAL

    This was a man who could not manage a ministry at a time much more managing Nigeria State.. Where is moral in all of these. he should go and a clear himself from efcc and other anti-graft agencies.. Looking for relevance.. RUBBISH..

  20. To FF-K. The American People have spoken. THEY feel he can be trusted for the next four years. THEY feel he is the one who can turn policies around. THEY the American people have decided they do not have faith in Mitt Romney.
    Show me a president or other world leader who has not made a mistake or mistakes in his/first term and is returned to office to complete a second, or has not reneged on promises made during his/her campaign? No. I didn't think so.
    Before I go, lease note that the anti-christ is not a person. But that's a discussion for another day.
    FF-K, The American People have chosen Barack Hussein Obama…
    You and I will sit and watch and may be come back to this in a couple of years time, should the Lord spare our lives.

    • princess ff-k knew this.he told us in an interview that he is NOT stupid so he should be given the benefit of the doubt.but it will be unfair to deny the man his right to express himself or indeed try to make himself relevant particularly within the 9ja context.its is livelihood much like a gossip columnist.

    • everyone is entitled to their opinion Paquito. I acknowledged this and I respect the man's opinion.
      FF-K may yet turn out to be a soothsayer. Perhaps Barack will show "his true colours" in a few years and turn out to be the person FF-K has described…"a very mysterious, strange and complex man and sadly he has proved to be a thoroughly disappointing President." Hence I said "You and I will sit and watch and may be come back to this in a couple of years time…"
      Only time will tell.

    • Stormie Blazing Chikita says:

      If Obama is the Anti-Christ then FFK and those who think so have missed the rapture. They've been left behind since last year.

      They should be thinking of how to survive the great tribulation that Obama 'the anti-christ' will mete out to them.

      Small minded Losers!!!

    Thank God GEJ didn’t appoint this man as one of his kitchen cabinet, he would have erased the little remaining sanity GEJ has.
