A timely tweet from the Martin Luther King Center grounds an essay!

(The King Center, Atlanta, United States)

EARLIER on in the week, there was a dreadful news report from genocidist Nigeria which claimed that the Martin Luther King Center, Atlanta, US, had “awarded” an “exceptional African leadership” prize to Nigeria’s lead genocidist operative Muhammadu Buhari. On Wednesday (27 March), I embarked on an essay response to this development… Most thankfully the following day, Thursday, the tweet from the King Center (copy below) brought my essay drive to a screeching halt!

The award given to President Buhari of Nigeria was not given by The King Center, at the request of The King Center or by the children of #MLK and #CorettaScottKing. @MrFixNigeria

INSTEAD, I am posting here an essay written in March 2007 on the odious relationship between Andrew Young, a one-time close aide of Martin Luther King, and these genocidists in Nigeria – then led by Olusegun Obasanjo  entitled  “Andrew Young, Obasanjo and the Nobel”,
