Donald Trump is America’s next President — Nigeria’s Event Guru, Temmie Amodu + Share reasons why Trump is better than Hilary

Temmie Amodu explaining a point to Asabeafrika on the need for a shift of paradigm shift in global politics

Temmie Amodu a Lagos based business man and Events Solution Management expert has
added his voice to the ongoing political process in America being the first
Nigerian and probably, one of the first Africans to put his voice forward for
America’s Republican Candidate, Donald
Trump
in the coming November, 2016 elections in the USA. Temmie Amodu who
runs Tsoule Events Solution Company
(Lagos) and Nathaniel Kings Signatures
Inc
(Houston-Texas) is vying for the candidacy of real estate mogul and
billionaire, Donald Trump for many
reasons. In a rare encounter with your Africa’s number 1 Celebrity Encounter
blog, Asabeafrika inside his Lagos,
Nigeria office, Mr. Amodu gave his
reasons why Mr. Trump is good for America this time around. Don’t crucify him
yet until you read through the entire interview. Enjoy. 

To a large extent, you are one of the
few Nigerians who have businesses in the United State of America and equally
relate with that country, what is your perception about the November 2016
Presidential elections, who do you think will be the best next American leader between
Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump?
Well, my
views for the political climate of America are simple; yes, it will be a
wonderful thing to have the first female President, I think the women as our
mothers deserve to have that honor of having a woman for the first time as the
leader of world’s most powerful country. However, I have followed the news and
I have spoken to a number of friends over there and they are all turning out in
droves to support Hilary Clinton.
But I was thinking, and I am like ok, perhaps, it might be better if Donald Trump becomes President of America.

The GDA with Mr. Temmie Amodu after the encounter

How do you mean, sir?
It might be
better for Africa as a whole; I will start on a jovial note. Donald Trump enjoys having his ego
massaged and that is something the African leaders are very good with, yes,
they do that. But on a more serious tone, if we go back in history to
understand why a Donald Trump’s
presidency or his candidate or him being in the Republic party winning in
November, I think it is going to be a wonderful thing for the entire world. It
will be good for Africa in
particular; the issue of Nigeria, to
start with, we were colonized by the British
and in 1900 we became a protectorate of Britain.
But before then, a fellow called George
Tubman
in 1800 was trading under the auspices of the Royal Niger Company, now, the British came, Otto Von Bismarck (Prime Minister of Germany) was coming but they
had a rancor with Bismarck in Germany and they had to go back to the
drawing board and the British
claimed Nigeria as a protectorate
around 1900 and Lord Lugard
amalgamated us in 1914 this is where the whole story started. However, between
1900 and 1960, which is 60 years of the British Crown, there were lots of things
that were done which in my opinion led to some certain misdemeanor which took
place. There is a video done by  Jide Odukoya on the history of Nigeria,
in that video, you will understand how we got here, we were brought together to
fulfill an economic need of the British.
Before then, our people had their own education but they came and they were
able to make us follow their own way of life. If Trump becomes the good President of America, the way it will favor us is this, Trump is not a member of the old order. He is going to disrupt the
old order and bring an entirely new world order in place. He said he is going
to shut down Mexico by building a
wall; that he is going to make Mexico
build a wall, that the Mexicans are
not going to have fun, he will build a wall with tunnels under neat, he said he
is going to make them pay for it; now, from what I understand, Trump is going to limit or cancel or
frustrate the transfer of monies from America
to Mexico

“If Trump becomes the good President of America, the way it will favor us is this, Trump is not a member of the old order. He is going to disrupt the
old order and bring an entirely new world order in place”.
Temmie Amodu to Asabeafrika…’It is my hearty opinion that Trump will make a better President than Hilary’

Over 24 billion Dollars exchange
hands, annually, between these two countries by virtues of the Mexicans working in America and sending
money home. He is going to use them to ensure that they pay for the wall
because he will deny their transactions, he is going to be friends with Putin, he is getting out of Japan
because he wants Japan to build a
nuclear arsenal, and he is saying trade with China is gone. He believes if the trade between China and America cancels that it will increase the jobs in America, I doubt it. They will just go
somewhere else, they can be Taiwan,
they can be Singapore, they can be Africa and that is why I am saying it
will be a good thing for Africa. If Donald wrote in December 2015 that the
Africans or Nigeria in Diaspora are going to be sent home if he comes in, that
to me is a great decision because the brain drain that we have suffered as a
country will come back to us. We have no light now, we have no good education, and
we have no good education policy because our best brains are over there. So, if
Donald Trumps can make the GOP, I strongly see him winning Hilary Clinton. It
is very possible. 
So, you believe if Donald Trump sends
out the blacks, it will affect Nigeria positively?
Yes it will
affect Nigeria positively because
there are a lot of undocumented immigrants. What Obama has not done is going out there and poaching, a Trump presidency will involve you being
deported actively. They will look for you if you don’t have papers, they will
look for you and deport you back to Africa. Let’s say in a family you deport
two of them that are not documented; yes they came in for holidays and they
overstayed, they are there, doing some simple-simple things. They want to be
citizens, they want to be normalized, they have not broken the law but when you
deport them back to Africa, you are threatening the source of livelihood of the
other three.  At some point, some people
will decide, ‘oh, I want to sell my property, I want to sell my thing, I want
to come back to Africa’. The other benefits are that the trade relationship
between Africa and some other countries will perhaps be diverted to other parts
of the world. There might be a war at some point that will disrupt the old
order because consequently, people say if some things don’t scatter some things
might not be arranged. Africa is not doing very well and it doesn’t look like
it is going to change; in terms of development, in terms of infrastructure we
are poor. Here now, we are running generator, there is no light, there is no
fuel, and our exchange rate is down, of course not America’s fault, not the West’s fault. It is our own problem, we
have not done enough. Even education is zero, it is dead.

Temmie
Amodu to Asabeafrika…’A Donald Trump Presidency will allow Africa and
Nigeria harness her brain drain for greater purpose’

Everybody is going by
the virtue of private university, private schools because our education system
here has gone bad. I won’t take my children to the public school because I
didn’t even go to that kind of school because the system is down. So, at the
end of the day, there is going to be a movement back, a huge amount of minds, a
kind of exodus back to Africa, because when you say you are black, you can’t
change your color. We are black and we have a black proud heritage. Our best
brains are all domiciled in your land but if you say we should come back, well,
brilliant, let’s make it happen. Let’s come back and revamp our land. This is
very hard to swallow because it is going to disrupt a number of things but
perhaps, for there to be a balance, a Donald
Trump
presidency in America is
good. Everybody will come home and we will get down doing things because I
believe the US Dollars will end up not being the symbol of trade anymore if you
start creating such problems among people.  With a Donald
Trump
, it is going to be pretty difficult. 

“Meanwhile, in the West where the
slave trade economy was unbundled, the states bought these slaves off their
owners and that is why you have some huge lease of wealth right now. They
bought them off their masters, it wasn’t like ‘Ok, no more slave trade, secure
them free’  no, no, no, no, they paid
money per head, per slave which is part of the income some western families are
enjoying right now”
. 

A Donald Trump presidency is good for Nigeria, it is good for America because he will make things
change there and we here we will adjust better. I mean, if he says people
shouldn’t ship cars in here for example, we might start deciding how to start
building our own infrastructure, our own steel, and the engineers working there
will return home.
Do you think the present American democratic
system pampered Africans?        
No, we are
not pampered, we are suffering. But we have a lot of people over there who can
change things here, that is a huge train that has been allowed to slip away and
it is not balanced because they have the best of our brains with them and it is
quite unfortunate because we are at the rough end of the deal; the revelations
of Panama
papers
is quite staggering. Like it was revealed, the tax on that
amount of money alone will cancel world hunger four times over. This is an
analysis on CNN, the tax alone on Panama papers, on the 7 trillion
dollars in the safe haven, just tax, don’t touch their money, just pay the tax,
up this point, will cure world hunger four times over. Somewhere, there need to
be a change and that change has to come with a ripple. It has to be unsealed.
Mr. Temmie Amodu….The Man who wants Donald Trump to rule America
Some analysts equally believed that
Trumps’ presidency could lead to a third world war; do you see it that way?
Oh, well,
yes, there is a strong possibility for that. I think a lot of people will be
more emboldened and he might be a little bit egoistic. If you tell him some things
in certain kind of way, he has a nuclear hold, he could launch something. We
have Jim there in North
Korea
and he has been terrorizing his end. Things can get very funny.
But again, if some of these things don’t change, we Africans might not be liberated because they are not going to trade
away their sphere of influence. They are getting wiser and our situation is
getting worse. I don’t know at which generation, I don’t think our generation
can experience a new order; our children can experience the desired change. So,
there has to be a huge change; and Trump
says we should all come back home, nobody is chasing us, we have a lot of lands
here; we just come here and develop it, it is as simple as that.
But what if Hilary and not Trump wins
the American Presidential race, what next?
Well, the
structure remains, the old world order stays as it is.  The politics will continue for another
generation. Because if Hilary wins,
they will put in a Supreme Court Judge, that is a lifestyle. Perhaps, that will
also be a good thing to us as it is based more on what Obama has done. So, it doesn’t affect anything drastically but
there is an opportunity for us. If our leaders tap into it, if President Buhari tap into it and not just shuns off, because right now he has
started his reforms, you are sacking people you are stopping things but we are
here suffering and it is not like after all of these crises, you will say ‘Ok
o, everybody, take One Million Naira as hazard allowance’ no, you wont do that.
Meanwhile, in the West where the slave trade economy was unbundled, the states
bought these slaves off their owners and that is why you have some huge lease
of wealth right now. They bought them off their masters, it wasn’t like ‘Ok, no
more slave trade, secure them free’  no,
no, no, no, they paid money per head, per slave which is part of the income
some western families are enjoying right now. Britain’s David Cameron has access
to such old monies. But there has to be a change, there has to be a change
because right now, it is not good for Africa.
If it is Donald Trump’s presidency,
wonderful and if Hilary wins, we
just maintain the status quo. 

“If I can sue my lecturer, if I can
sue my school for not making me graduate in four years, I think some people
will start getting their ass right once the rule of law works. Let it work from
the top to low, from the CEO to the cleaner, from the Governor to the house
clerk. We want to see some prominent people send to jail. Let the processes of
arrest and investigation end with prosecution in the court of law”. 
Temmie Amodu to Asabeafrika…’Donald Trump will break the Old Order’

With the present state of the
economy, if you are to have an encounter with President Muhammadu Buhari and
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Aso Rock, what will be your chief advice to
them?
Well, I want
to believe that with the mandate the Nigerian people gave to President Mohammadu Buhari and our Vice
President, with the amount of trust the people gave them coupled with the
believe system that we know the intention that they have, I believe they are
doing their utmost best now. Perhaps Mr. President wants to get himself to the
grass root a little bit more; you are trying to make a change. Some of the
things that you have created for us seem to be relegating against the change
you intend to make. I think the rule of law must hold, we have EFCC daily
arresting these corrupt persons, it looks like a witch hunt, punishing some
people…yes, nobody should be above the law. If the rule of law works and I know
I can go to you and I know I can get justice, I think things will shape
themselves up adequately.  If I can sue
my lecturer, if I can sue my school for not making me graduate in four years, I
think some people will start getting their ass right once the rule of law
works. Let it work from the top to low, from the CEO to the cleaner, from the
Governor to the house clerk. We want to see some prominent people send to jail.
Let the processes of arrest and investigation end with prosecution in the court
of law.  That way people will sit tight
and become more proficient with their work. I was at the Passport office the other day, to get your passport you have to go
through a rowdy process, the man will be shouting and people were lined up
like…I mean, it is just a mess, nothing is functioning and we the individuals
that our businesses are here, we can’t just stroll into a bank and get loan for
our businesses. It is difficult because they will tell you to go and brink
properties and you will be given the loan with killing interest rates.  So, we believe General Buhari is our father, we believe he can help us change
things and we are ready to understand him if he can equally understand us. Even
when you are solving these problems, you should create a buffer that can suit
people’s feelings and make life easy for the ordinary man on the street.

this Interview will be released on Asabeafrika
