I have already mentioned in a previous article that Nigerians are very interested in a Trump victory. But the specifics of that interest have of course not yet been fully shared. Some of the political specifics cannot be placed in the public domain for the moment though a little hint (just a tiny weeny little hint) can be obtained at However, one can go as far as talking about some of the rather interesting cultural effects happening here now (and happening rather quickly I might add) as a direct result of the political upheavals taking place in America right now. Take for instance the reawakening of an art movement calling itself the Analytical Realist Movement (ARM), after a period of about 10 years of dormancy and isolation. ARM has updated its manifesto towards its long held goal of repositioning itself as a vehicle for not only artistic and cultural engagement but also for effective political participation in a country that has been suffering from one of the most extreme forms of corruption in the world for over four decades. The giant of Africa has indeed been suffering from the worse types of corruption due a large extent to the systemic under-consumption of development information among both leaders and followers.

The ARM’s manifesto is therefore to use arts and culture as a weapons and tools for:

  1. Stimulating true action-for-development rather than mere lemonade reactions that proceed no further than the clinking glasses and eloquent prose in the exhibition halls.
  2. Accelerating and consolidating conservative missions and values specifically through works that function as pro-conservative vector quantities (i.e. this means works of art that possess both magnitude and direction which combine to point accusingly [“J’accuse”] at the stubborn post modernist refusal to connect art and reality and which has led to the severe degradation and destruction of scientific, moral, socio-economic and political essentials throughout the world).
  3. Dissection and holding in suspension “the beast that approaches” using the most brutal integrations of light, speed and emotion upon the canvass.
  4. Stimulating the emergence of knowledge economy in developing countries by, among other means, transforming a selected library’s preferred conspectus organization of knowledge into works of art that therefore express the preferred psychographics of the selected library’s user community (this will require preliminary collection assessment intervention in the library selected as venue of any given ARN exhibition designed to shock developing countries into more rigorous educational organization and reading culture).
  5. Give the world a special folio of works that promote Carry Discipline & gun education for responsible use and safety and for preventing the rise of tyrannical government.
  6. Generating a special set of educative, entertaining and inspiring art exhibition programs and brochures that document the entire volume of ARM contributions to art history (which is expected to feature content that can be accurately filed under the fine arts, political science, religion, and psychology sections of any academic, public, or school library).
  7. Reviewing itself as an art movement with Dadaist intensity after every single exhibition.


At the moment, the ARM has not held a single exhibition. The leader of the movement fancies himself to be a Nigerian version of Andre Breton, the godfather of the Surrealist movement of early 20 century Europe. One can also go further to say that ARM is very likely to either join a political party or metamorphose into one as Nigeria approaches its next presidential elections. In a subsequent article, I will highlight how ARM and other groups slowly coming together under the NIGERIANS FOR TRUMP coalition intend to respond to the following words credited to Trump before it is too late. Donald J. Trump aledgedly had the following to say about Africa and Nigeria which aroused anger in many placed but cause many to celebrate the possible rise of a fearless truther capable of standing out as a beacon of freedom to which freedom lovers every can relate with in one form or the other:

“Look at African countries like Nigeria or Kenya for instance, those people are stealing from their own government and go to invest the money in foreign countries. From the government to opposition, they only qualify to be used as a case study whenever bad examples are required.

“How do you trust even those who have run away to hide here at the United States, hiding behind education? I hear they abuse me in their blogs, but I don’t care because even the internet they are using is ours and we can decide to switch it off from this side.

“These are people who import everything including matchsticks. In my opinion, most of these African countries ought to be recolonized again for another 100 years, because they know nothing about leadership and self governance”,
