Power Failure at Kano Venue of U-17 Football in Nigeria

By Adeola Aderounmu

In my last but one post about this U-17 championship I wrote “Let us hope that the power supply to the stadia will be fully opertional or that the generators will be loaded with diesel. Any form of darkness at the game venues will spread panic and possibly hypertension. I don’t want to imagine a game at 8pm and blackout at the stadium. FIFA will regret this one decision to give the game to a country lacking in social infrastructure, a country where electricity is almost entirely absent”.

But that was a hopeless hope as Power Failure occured at Kano during the game between Spain and USA on monday. 14 minutes added time was given to compensate for the embarrassing moment.

FIFA be warned! It will probably happen again. This is my country and the government is a total failure when it comes to provuiding electricity. FIFA, it may interest you to know that the power supply at these various stadia are basically on generators running on diesels. It may also interest you that power supply is only to the hotels and stadia where these games are taking place.

In other places in Nigeria, the corrupt and illegal government have failed to provide power to the people.

Please don’t bring these games to Nigeria again until we have achieved 100% power supply to everyone in Nigeria. Thank you!

2009 U-17 Kicks Off In Nigeria

by Adeola Aderounmu

Nigeria plays Germany in the opening game today Oct 24 2009.

24 Teams in 6 groups will be aiming for the trophy. I wish the organizing committee all the best as they now try to showcase Nigeria to the world in a perspective that is of course far from the reality.

So for 2 or 3 weeks, we will lay aside our national problems and try to please the world. Pray no shame, disaster or calamity brings the competition to an abrupt end.

Security is a big problem in Nigeria esp with the spate of kidnapping and unsolved assasinations latest being the assasination of Bayo Ohu of the Nigerian Guardian Newspaper. I hope that the LOC will be able to protest the footballers and the foreign contigents generally.

Let us hope that the power supply to the stadia will be fully opertional or that the generators will be loaded with diesel. Any form of darkness at the game venues will spread panic and possibly hypertension. I don’t want to imagine a game at 8pm and blackout at the stadium. FIFA will regret this one decision to give the game to a country lacking in social infrastructure, a country where electricity is almost entirely absent.

Don’t get me wrong, I love that this game is hosted by Nigeria. I am just sad that more than 70% of Nigerians live in absolute poverty and are deprived of the basic things of life by an illegal government swimming in corruption and evil desires.

Good luck Fifa, good luck Nigeria. Now let the games begin!

The Bad Luck and Evil in Nigeria Today

By Adeola Aderounmu

Nigerians are resilient, no doubt about that.

The current illegal regime in Nigeria is full of bad luck and evil. Nothing good has happened in Nigeria since May 2007 when Yar Adua was illegally installed as the ruler of Nigeria. I curse the day I will call him a president! He will never be one!

Nigerian sports has now died completely. Education is extinct. Health care is rubbish in the public health institutions. In private hospitals, health care is as expensive as gold-

Roads and other infrastructure are near collapse. The cost of living is out through the roof. Employment is record high and crime rate is extraordinary.

Purchasing power of the naira is in the ebb and the cost of transportation has skyrocketed over and over again.

Summarily, the state of security is zero as anyone can be killed or kidnapped at anytime.

Yar Adua is full of bad luck and it is surprising that the people of Nigeria cannot kick this evil man out of the way. He is illegal and non-performing. His reign has brought tears and harm to our daily lives and he is still be pampered like an egg. He is using our money to treat himself in Saudi Arabia while 5 000 children die weekly immediately after or during birth.

This is so silly, as in what is going on in Nigeria. It is worse than horror movie.

If Nigerians don’t know, they should read it from me that as long as illegality and evil government persist in Nigeria, things will get worse and worse.

Life will never get better under the reign of illegality and evil. Millions of Nigerians will not experience the good life until they make a decision to steer the course of the National democracy and the respect for the rights of all and sundry.

Until this mafiac reign of illegality, corruption and evil machinations are crushed, the bad luck, poverty and all the attributes of a failed state will persist in Nigeria.

The first thing to do is to get Yar Adua and other forms of illegality out of the way. A revolution of minds and attitudes will present the way forward for Nigeria. The status quo is the way of perdition and ruin.

I feel so sorry Nigeria, the ant of Africa

Nigerian Politicians Repeating their Madness

By Adeola Aderounmu.

Nigeria is still battling with the illegal presidency two years on. Nothing is working except organised corruption.

In Anambra State, the madness is on again. There will be a governorship position to be filled in February 2010. There is total chaos now in the politics in Anambra State especially in the PDP camp. PDP is the ruling party in Nigeria. That is the party with the evil strength that have been used to plunder and scatter the country since 1999.

By special arrangement PDP has been designed to win the governorship election in 2010. The votes will not be counted so the other parties may as well not bother to campaign or send their supporters into the deadly voting processes.

PDP will win because the most useless election umpire ever in the history of mankind, one Maurice Iwu is still in charge of the partial electoral committees. No electoral reforms have been carried out since the illegal regime of Yar Adua took over in 2007. Why would there be a reform that could unseat the evil and wicked government?

PDP styles of government has appointed the immediate past governor of the central bank of Nigeria Mr. Soludo as its flagbearer for the 2010 Anambra State governorship election. PDP did not follow the due process that will allow delegates to vote for aspirants. In Nigeria elections are a mere waste of time. In keeping with this mad attitude and since there were over 40 candidates seeking the single PDP ticket, the PDP hiearchy took the shortest cut ever. It is called wuruwuru.

This is an idea of the things to come in Nigerian in 2011. There will be violence, political assasinations, mayhem, riots, chaos and anarchy may be the climax. This country is in bad hands and bad shape. There are no electoral reforms so this useless politicians will keep the status quo. It is a game, survival of the fittest, survival of the fattest pocket. Looters on the rampage.

Politics is the shortest cut to wealth in Nigeria. People steal freely and they loot as much as they want from the public treasury. This is why someone can pay 5 million naira to buy a governorship ticket. Most of these people are people who have stolen from one place or the other. How else can they raise 5m naira to buy an ordinary paper?

Since thieves and looters are not prosecuted, Nigerian Politics continue to attract more thieves like the ones in power now. Yar Adua and all his co-travellers are thieves!!! Has anyone check out the customs department lately? It is full of smugglers known to Yar Adua and even the custome boss is a BIG FRAUD!

One day will be one day, the people will eventually have their eyes open and take what it theirs.

It is certain that this country cannot go on like this, it is a big shame. Nigeria is now the ant of Africa. We share a collective shame because of the madness and the greediness of a few. The madness will stop one day.
