Nigeria: Revolution is Our Last Option

The most consistent message from my articles since 2002 is that without a revolution ordinary Nigerians-more than 70% of the population- will never experience the good life and that the situation will get worse as the status quo in Nigeria is maintained or sustained.

This means that unless something drastic happens in Nigeria [something with magnitude and effect greater than the Northern African revolutions] mass poverty and penury will remain the portion of the larger percentage of the people.

In general the decadence in the society and the hopelessness that affects more than 90m Nigerians today will persist. More than any other country in the world Nigeria needs a revolution.

Just the other day Dimeji Bankole consoled himself on his personal fears and anxiety about a Nigerian revolution that will consume him and his likes. He said Nigerians have democracy and that the types of revolutions we see in North Africa cannot happen in Nigeria.

Does this dude even know that the standard of living under a dictatorial Mubarak was fear better than all the stupid forms of government that Nigerians have experienced and endured?

I have written several times that anyone that says that Nigeria is democratic country needs to see a doctor to ascertain the state of his/ her mental health.

I don’t know if Dimeji and all the politicians parading Nigeria and looting at will need a reminder of how they got their political appointments or selections. To make a generalization-almost all the political offices in Nigeria in the forth coming April elections are already determined and known.

I see a collective madness when the generality of Nigerians subscribe to the word “democracy”. Nigeria’s mad politics needs to be defined and explained. This is going to be a long essay.

In Tunisia the people rose against a family that controlled more than half of the country’s economy. In Nigeria the task is bigger. We are not dealing with a family. We are up against a gang of political robbers spread across Nigeria who with the consent and support of a few among us have found ways to suppress the genuine aspirations of the good people in Nigeria. We live as slaves and subjects. The expression “fellow Nigerians” that usually comes from Nigerian rulers is a figment of their imaginations.

In Nigeria we are dealing situations that have been made complicated by the exploitation of our cultural and ethnic diversities. The things that should have been used for the development and progress of Nigeria have been hijacked by these evil manipulators to create disunity and a perpetual means to enrich a few and enslave the rest of us. I refused to be manipulated.

Has anyone suggested to Jonathan, Dimeji and David Mark that they should all try to live on the minimum wage of N18 000/month for at least 3 months? These people are heartless bloodsuckers!

When I wrote My message to Nigerians in 2011 stop saying it’s God, I was emphatic on the need for Nigerians to emerge from their places of worship and confront the order of things. I was calling for a mass revolt that will overthrow the persistent illegitimacy in Nigeria and put a final end to the deep-rooted corruption in the system.

When I wrote is revolution our last option, I already knew it is the only way forward for Nigeria. In the last paragraph I stated that: this country belongs to all of us and it is our right to participate in the matters that shape our lives. The last probable option will be to do it by force. The people must utilize the best option that is open to them so that prosperity can be a bestowment to the generations unborn from this land flowing with milk and honey. That option in other words is the revolution.

When I wrote what happened to a cup of rice at 30kobo, my idea was that we must take back Nigeria now so that it will be ready for our great grandchildren by the turn of the next century. My views remain the same. Nigeria must be taken back from the oppressors, thieves and looters.

When I wrote who planned our lives in Nigeria, the aim was to sensitize Nigerians on the need to choke the greedy people out of Nigeria and for us to start a new plan. Sweden started with great reforms about 100 years ago and Tunisians are writing a new chapter in their history. All great countries made changes and reforms, at some points in their histories.

My code red to NVS was a message that I wrote specifically calling for the overthrow of corrupt regimes in Abuja and across all the states in Nigeria by the ordinary people who love Nigeria. In that essay I mentioned that it was time to move our online activism and demonstrations overseas back to Nigeria where the real action is.

I was called a preacher man. In the Middle East they are called “The Generation changing the world” (Time Magazine Feb 28). No one mocks people calling for changes that are overdue.

I haven’t read anywhere online or elsewhere where Egyptians at home are calling on Egyptians abroad to come home to lead a revolution. Libyans at home are doing the work while those abroad are mounting international pressures. What has also happened as we see even in Bahrain is that exiled politicians are returning home to join the revolts and to contribute to the new reawakening.

As recent as December 2010 a friend spoke to me in Nigeria and said, Adeola why don’t you come back home and write all these stuffs. Nigerians have been poisoned by this sort of layback mentality. I didn’t have enough time to tell him the risk some people are taking for Nigeria even after liberating themselves from the social malady and absolute madness in Nigeria.

I didn’t have the time to tell him about the various types of emails that I have been receiving from across the world and the fact that when I walk down the streets of Lagos I don’t know how anonymous I am really. My pictures are all over the web and my real names go with my opinions. Even the people who love me have warned me not to step into Nigeria or they encourage me to take alternative routes to Nigeria.

Nigerians need a revolution now, not later. It is not even worth waiting for the forthcoming election that has already resulted in the murder of several Nigerians and which, if care is not taken, may rank among the bloodiest elections in Nigeria. Jos and Maiduguri are indicators that cannot be overlooked or underrated.

Nigerians should come out in their millions and take back their country from the people in Abuja and other parts of Nigeria. Six months ago no one thought that Ben Ali dynasty could be wiped away from the surface of the earth. But it happened! Nothing is impossible. Where there is a will, there is a way.

Ben Ali was swept away. Why not Babangida as a Nigerian example? This man should be arrested and all the treasures of Nigeria in Minna, Paris, Switzerland and all other places should be taken back. Tunisians took their stuff from the former first family and burnt the rest. Nigerians must have clear cut goals and pursue them to the last letter.

Obasanjo should be made to return anything in excess of his salary from 1999-2007. Let’s do the calculations, how much do these rogues earn? How much do they have in their bank accounts through self-enrichment and abuse of offices?

Nigeria’s revolution should usher in the longest trial of corrupt people in human history. At that point Dimeji’s razzmatazz would not save him from all the allegations of looting hanging on his neck.

Nigerians can do the work that Ribadu refused to do because he was one of them anyway.

The Nigerian revolution should sweep away all undesirable elements in the Nigerian public service. David Mark, Dimeji Bankole and all the gangs in the Nigerian National Assembly and the House of Representatives should be made to return all the excess monies they have taken since 1999. How on earth can these rogues be allowed to take away 25% of Nigeria’s wealth while the rest of us are suffering?

Imagine how much monies the governors and ministers have stolen in Nigeria! What about commissioners and the rest of them?

In the whole world there is no greater need for revolution than in Nigeria.

Nigeria has reached the turning point. She must not refuse to turn. The momentum and impulse sweeping across Africa and the Mideast must not be allowed to hover around Nigeria just like that. Nigerians must harness and impact the wind of change.

There is a global support for change to usher in a better world; Nigerians cannot afford the luxury of wasting this golden moment in history. Change is now.

Change is now because even as I ponder this article a friend told me: Adeola, look, if you are a Nigerian politician, you must steal! He gave me the alternatives. If you don’t steal, you will be killed! If you don’t steal, the people under you will implicate you in deals. If you don’t steal, you will have problems.

This line of argument-that I must steal-is like a recurring decimal. I don’t win because Nigerians have a malformed mindset of the meaning of governance and public service. I have not been able to convince any Nigerian that rather than steal or loot, I will leave office or even die. They said it doesn’t happen in Nigeria.

I cannot wish more for a revolution than now and today. Many Nigerians have been brainwashed and even brain-damaged that they speak unthinkable things and give their supports to extreme anomalies like corruption, tribalism, nepotism, national character, sabotage, looting and many other vices.

My point?

We cannot continue to live with these anomalies and aberrations. Despite all the corrupt people and all the people who are waiting for their turn to loot or benefit from loot, there are people in Nigeria who can rescue Nigeria.

But the challenges are hard and difficult.

When I walk down the streets of Lagos I see that the people are totally disconnected from the politicians who are looting and deceiving them. The hopelessness and struggles in the Nigerian society has rendered millions of Nigerians powerless and voiceless.

Many are disillusioned by perpetual failure of governance and unmet expectations.

We described Nigerians as resilient people whereas in actual fact it is the government that has systematically zombified the populace. Imagine that Nigerians are going to vote and try to protect their votes in elections that some people already know the outcomes.

If you make a simple prayer like “May Sango strike dead any Nigerian politician that try to cheat in the forthcoming elections”, no Nigerian politician will dare say Amen or Amin.

The revolution coming to Nigeria must help us do away with this type of banana republic where a group of politicians prepare election results, force their way to INEC offices, bribe the soldiers with N50 000 each and announce the results they have made to tally with estimated voters from each constituencies.

This according to Obasanjo, has been the tradition since 1959 and in 1999 Atiku and Obasanjo perfected the same stupid strategy for the PDP. In 2007 Obasanjo, Iwu and Ibori did the dirty jobs for Yar Adua and Jonathan.

Since 1999 I have been careful not to carelessly address any Nigerian ruler as president. I have also been careful not to succumb to using the phrase “elected into office”. I refused to live with the nonsense that Nigerians called politics or elections.

I want to continue to raise my heads high. I also want to be able to say one day “there are no bases to lower the cognitive abilities and intellectuality of the black people using Nigerians living in Nigeria as the yardstick and our electoral process as a parameter”. Today the arguments are not in my favour so I don’t undertake them.

Today I cannot prove that a godfather collecting N25m monthly from a state is not mentally deranged or intellectually fatigued. Those giving away the funds too must be mad or something but then it’s called payback. In today’s Nigeria it is hard to prove that the people in the Nigerian senate and house of assembly are not deficient in their cognitive abilities if they earn the most money in the world doing almost nothing and living among the poorest people on earth.

In the future someday our great grandchildren will be able to use other parameters like GDP, family planning, level education, level of infrastructure, equality, growth index, social awareness, social justice, national insurance policy and several more as the lasting bridges of common human intellectual capacities.

The foundation for such a future must be laid now and revolution is the only way out.

The present government in Nigeria was borne out of illegality in 2007 and should be flushed away. The attempt to legalise it this April 2011 is not coming with a promise of better life. In such a short time, the illegal government of Jonathan has almost drain Nigeria’s foreign reserves. What a prodigal son!

Still Mr. Jonathan owes the people of Bayelsa both apologies and restitutions for the funds that were looted by him and his boss Diepreye Alamieyeseigha. Jonathan’s wife may suffer the same fate as Ben Ali’s second wife if our revolution takes place today.

I am talking about sending not only Jonathan to exile but also members of his family and over 120 personal assistants.

Together they are sucking the people dry in probably the most expensive government in the world.

Those who say revolution is not possible in Nigeria are viewing the extent of the damage that has been done over the past 50 years and counting on the mummification of Nigerians. But why should they also neglect the possibility of changes and the hope of a better future for our grandchildren that are not yet born.

Who says it’s too late?

Everything that is wrong and bad in Nigeria can be corrected through this revolution that will send all corrupt people to either jail or exile. It will serve as a long lasting solution to addressing national issues. The revolution will not end after one night and the changes will not appear in a fortnight. These things are processes. A journey of a thousand miles still needs one bold step to begin.

The greatest crime ordinary Nigerians are committing against themselves is their collective passivity and their continuous hope even in the face of outright hopelessness.

What is imperative now is that we need a revolution in Nigeria and it is something we must undertake.

Nobody has to worry about leading the revolt. Revolution takes its own shape as it unfolds. The prime thing is to have agenda, demands and the right to self-determination.

I have seen different Nigerian groups on Facebook. What we need is a group of selfless individuals who can harness these various groups under one umbrella. Nigerians must find their common grounds. If we succeed we will create the largest online revolt forum. From that point we can start to see and take our destinies in our hands.

I have no doubt in my minds since I wrote my first major article in 2002-why politicians steal-that the only option for Nigeria is a revolution.

While Discussing NLC, Mass Revolt and the Coming Revolution 2 years ago I thought that the nationwide protests by the NLC could usher in the revolution but it didn’t. Such demonstrations must now return with full force because together they still represent a viable option to rescue Nigerians.

The future of Nigeria is in the hands of Nigerians.

The outcome of a Nigerian revolution will help the Nigerian people to negotiate on the way they want to pursue their lives, how to seek happiness within Nigeria or without it. The sum of all our collective decisions will help us to determine the way forward.

Nigeria’s politics today is the single biggest investment for fraudulent minds. It is a disgrace to the intellectuality of the African race. It does not represent the change we seek and it does not signify the hope we can believe in.
Nigeria needs something that will bring all the corrupt rulers and politicians- both in past and present dispensations to justice now. Enough is enough, it’s been 50 years of waste and rot.

I am sure that it is only a revolution that can bring about a new order and glimpse of hope for the future for Nigerians.

Nigeria’s Jagajaga Politics, A Disgrace To Both Common Sense and Humanity

Adeola Aderounmu

Nigeria’s politics is total rubbish. There is nothing in Nigeria’s politics to support the true meaning of democracy.

Just the other day the rascal man from the delta who belongs to a rascal party was calling the other people rascals. When confronted, his yeye pressman said the name was not ascribed to anyone. I hope I have not ascribed rascal to that man whose wife thought she is a dame.

The shapes of things to come in the April polls have started emerging.

INEC has started publishing names of candidates. In several cases the names do not tally with the candidates that were selected in the various states. I won’t subscribe to that nonsense that anyone was elected. I have not seen elections in Nigeria.

What the candidates and their sponsors or godfathers have been doing is competition with money and votes buying across the nation. In some situations, candidates were forced down the throats of party members and delegates.

Nigeria and Nigerians need to define their politics. To say that it is democracy is pure madness. Nigeria is not a democratic nation.

The new battle for the soul of Nigeria has begun. The rascals across Nigeria are now into the usual roforofo fights. Lists of names and counter lists have been sent to INEC.

There are so many useless provisions, laws and appropriations that are easy to manipulate and misinterpret and use for different dubious purposes depending on the rascals involved.

Ogun state PDP for example has its own list. Obasanjo has his own separate list. The National body of the number one rascal party in Nigeria-the PDP- will soon come up with a new compromised list. And the names will keep changing and rotating from Ogun, to Enugu, to Kano and other states.

One set of looters will become angry, they will change party affiliation citing marginalization in the evil party they helped build, the party that provided them the means to loot and steal from the people. I called them political prostitutes in an earlier post.

Even Abacha’s son is back on the list of his political party. He won and was bashed but he bounced back.

In some places, evil is resurrecting and elsewhere it continues to rise.

Nigeria’s politics is complete jagajaga. Pure rubbish! It makes no sense. This is because there is only one goal and that goal is that politics is the number one way to become a legalized thief in Nigeria.

So when you think of INEC, ICPC and EFCC, just laugh it off because all these agencies are controlled by thieves and looters as well. In Nigeria, it is a survival thing.

For all the monies that have been stolen and looted at the presidency, at the executive arm, at the various state governments, at the local councils, and in the houses of assemblies and representatives, how much of it has been recovered by the EFCC? How many have been arrested and sent to jail?

One man took up the Dimeji-scam challenge, he went to court but both EFCC and ICPC want the case thrown out. You must love Nigeria. If you are a political thief or a looter, you are home.

So the scramble and struggle for political offices will continue to be a matter of life and death, do-or-die. I mean if by now, all these thieves know that they will go to jail for all they have stolen, there will be no list/ counter-list flying around. What will be emanating from INEC will be authentic lists of the selected.

Sadly that is not the situation. And I continue to urge Nigerians to see INEC as INEC. Don’t look up to Jega. People who occupy that kind of position in Nigeria are usually helpless. They are not the problem and they will not be the solution.

One man can make a difference only if the man has incorruptible principles and a charisma that is volatile or infective. These are the characters of the men who started the ongoing and persistent revolts in Tunisia and Egypt. But in a country where for inexplicable reasons, we the people are sagged and unbelievably and scandalously passive, it begs for more than a man. It begs for the removal of the religious veils sown by commercial religious rulers and worn by our compatriots.

I’m trying hard to remember not to use the word leader for anyone in political or religious institutions. In Nigeria, there are no leaders.

Our system is wrong. No individual will be able to run INEC successfully until the fundamental issues have been addressed.

No individual will be able to run EFCC or even the Nigerian presidency successfully until we address the basic/ fundamental problems facing Nigeria.

All these weak, incompetent and useless public institutions will continue to follow the schemes of the evil people in power and all of them will take as much money as they want, and they will never get enough. It’s a curse that must be broken.

We left the drawing board a long time ago or we set out without a compass. We have no bearings.

Today Nigeria is not seen as a country. To many of us it is an economic jungle and survival of the fittest is the name of the game. It’s a rat race!

It therefore becomes imperative that some serious negotiations must take place among all the various nationalities within Nigerian to define the purpose for the nation (or nations within Nigeria).

Actually there is no one way forward and there are no simple solutions since the country has been plundered for over 50 years by thieves, sycophants, looters and tropical gangsters. Even foreigners have looted our treasures. We cracked big time!

Nevertheless to emerge from the present useless order of things, something very radical and probably unconventional must be done. Something must happen to eradicate all these bad people who continue to represent Nigeria. Change and accountability must come one way or the other.

These recuperations, in its sociological sense must be initiated by the ordinary people when they have become organized. One charismatic man or not, the people it is, who must fight for their freedom.

Nigerians Must Stop the PDP, They are the real RASCALS!

Adeola Aderounmu

PDP has destroyed Nigeria since 1999. It is a party founded by crooks, criminals, gangsters and well known corrupt Nigerians. PDP was founded by those who the police refused to arrest for their corrupt acts and crimes against humanity in Nigeria. PDP is made up of a nest of killers who the judiciary cannot throw behind bars because in Nigeria some people are more equal than the others.

PDP is not the only group with criminals. There are many other criminals hiding in other political parties across Nigeria. But Nigerians need to start setting example from somewhere and the PDP is the ideal group to start with.

I cannot vote and I do not believe in the Nigeria’s electoral process. This is my contribution to motherland- that Nigerians must stop the PDP now and for all time. The system has failed the people of Nigeria. It is time for the Nigeria people to stop failing the system.

I don’t believe in the forth coming elections at all. They are asking us to vote before we complain. Bullshit!

What happened to my votes in 1993? Where is my vote? Those who complained were bulldozed by Ibrahim Babangida, that emperor living free in Nigeria with treason and murder charges hanging over his head. Pro-democracy activists and protesters-our brothers and sisters trying to defend their votes- died for nothing! Abiola and his family members were marked for murder by national and international conspirators.

What happened to all the complaint made after Obasanjo and Iwu bundled Umaru and Jonathan into offices illegally in 2007? They are asking for the same process again and we are playing into their hands again. Complain after voting, rubbish!

The Nigerian system is in the hands of the PDP. It must be taken away by whatever means possible and return to back to the people. The PDP agenda has been a masterful plan to continue to deceive Nigerians into “believing”. April is around the corner and I state again that Nigerians will be fooled in the upcoming charade. It’s sheer carelessness and maybe stupidity not to see that INEC is in the hands of the PDP.

I don’t know where Nigerians found their new optimism. How is it different from the optimism I had in 1993? How is this optimism different from the anticipations I had in 2003 and 2007 where votes were stolen or never counted? It’s a cycle of idiocy.

In Nigeria history repeats itself with the same precision and pattern, yet we the people always find a way to hope against hope every four years. There must be something wrong with our cerebral hemispheres.

PDP in Ibadan should have been met by the stiffest of opposition from the masses. They should have made it impossible for the crooks to gather themselves in peace. For how long will the people of Nigeria be deceived and lured by the monies that were stolen from them in the first place?

Nigerian Rascals: Namadi Sambo, Alao-Akala, Jonathan, Obasanjo, Oladipo

A collection of people who stole our future and destroyed our lives, and having the audacity to call us rascals in our own domain, should never be allow to talk in our presence. Jonathan, though free to exercise his right in contesting for political offices, has not earned the audacity to stand before Nigerians preaching morality. He needs the dictionary of the humble.

Is Jonathan not aware of how the elections were conducted in Bayelsa in 2007? Was Jonathan not among those who supervised the violent elections in Bayelsa in 2007? Was he not aware of the masked men carrying guns and cutlasses who guarded the various secret locations where fraudulent elections were conducted in Bayelsa? Both Jonathan and Obasanjo knew what Obasanjo meant by do-or-die elections in 2007. It is their common trademark.

All the state chairmen of PDP across Nigeria were responsible for the rigging of elections in their various states. Jonathan, Obasanjo or any PDP follow-follow should know that some of us are aware of what they did in 2003 and 2007. Was Jonathan not among those bad men who were sweating as these evil processes were conducted across the nation in 2007?

And what about the scrabble and struggle for rewards for these nefarious activities when Umaru took forever to form the cabinet and government of the evil doers? Why didn’t Nigerians ask Umaru why it took him several weeks to form a government? It’s too late to ask now but we know it was difficult to reward all the evil people-they were so many that confusion reigned supreme in PDP and in Nigeria.

Jonathan or anyone in the PDP has no right whatsoever to call other people rascals. The real rascals are the PDP big-wigs and touts, the likes of those who showed their faces and stinking armpits in Ibadan where Jonathan had the audacity to call other people rascals.

PDP has bought the souls of millions of Nigerians with promises of instant wealth. The masses have been so disorientated that they settle for anything. Anything goes in Nigeria. The Nigerian laws do not catch up with looters. The laws of Nigeria have never been directed at eradicating corruption.

Where will the hope of the common people emanate from? It must be from themselves and this must be our new song until change comes to Nigeria. It must come.

Alao-Akala is a rascal, no doubt about that. Jonathan and Obasanjo have also acted as rascals. Or what is the meaning of do-or-die elections championed by Obasanjo? What is not rascal about Jonathan accepting a stolen mandate in 2007? Jonathan cannot go about calling other people rascals.

It’s like him going about saying we will deal with corruption and corrupt people. Then he has so start dealing with himself and the members of his family starting from his wife who has been implicated in money laundry and himself who helped Alams to empty the Bayelsa treasury. It doesn’t matter that Ribadu covered up for the Jonathans. Truth is always naked and telling lies is one of the most difficult tasks known to mankind.

I cannot shout enough that we need to do something to save the next generation of Nigerians. The third generations of Nigerians is about to be wasted, just like that.

The way forward can never be complaining after elections have been rigged or manipulated because they will be rigged and manipulated whether Nigerians like it or not. I have discussed about these issues and even proffered solutions in several essays. The acts of complaining before and after election have never helped us in Nigeria. We know the truth and we shy away from it. That is why we are not yet free. Freedom is far from Nigerians. We must earn it.

There must be mechanisms that can be enforced by the Nigerian people to make all the looters and corrupt people in Nigeria pay for their deeds and misdemeanors. I am sure there are mechanisms that can bring change and accountability to Nigeria. Nigerian politicians and military dictators must pay for their corrupt acts and evil deeds. They should be made to pay for all the murders and assassinations they committed directly and indirectly. Somehow we must make them give accounts of their stewardship in office. These are not impossible targets. Change must come.

I am convinced that with the PDP it is business as usual. With the way things are now, that party will continue to suck Nigerians dry.

I hereby cast my invisible vote for the Nigerian man who is so confused and derailed that he has no idea what governance means. My vote is for the Nigerian woman who continues to live her life in struggle and agony because she knows that the Nigerian government is full of clueless looters and rogues.

My vote goes to the Nigerian children whose future, like mine, had been stolen even before they were born. They are so unfortunate; they are born into a world that doesn’t care.

My hope is that one day my children and our grandchildren will cast their votes in one democratic republic of Nigeria where sanity, probity and accountability reign. At that time one hopes that the PDP and other associations of cabals, gangsters, rascals and political nonentities that dominate present day Nigeria would have been erased and replaced by Common Good.It will come to past either in Nigeria or in a region within it if every person is sent back to his tent. I am sure.

Nigeria’s Political Prostitutes

By Adeola Aderounmu

We now need a Political-GPS (P-GPS) to keep track of the political parties that Nigeria’s political prostitutes belong to. Does anyone know which political party Atiku belongs to today? The guy has made a full cycle. In an article I wrote in Jan 2008 I have concluded that Atiku’s political fate will continue to swing.

Nigerian political prostitutes are usually those who are desperate for political offices and positions. They belong to any type of political party not because of any ideology but because of what they stand to gain from belonging to the party.

Indeed virtually all prominent Nigerian politicians are in for what they will gain. Since 1999 when civilian regime returned to Nigeria, the politicians have continued to scoop, loot and empty the treasury nationwide. Nothing has changed and nothing seemed to be set for a change.

From Obasanjo to Yar Adua to Jonathan the political game is pitched on money-especially raw cash, winners take all mentality and do-or-die attitude.

It is hard to point to a man who has an ideological stance in the Nigerian political terrain. Does anyone even know the manifestoes or the ideology of any of the Nigerian political parties? When was the last time we had a debate of ideas in Nigeria?

It is certain that the forth coming elections will be based on the traditional cash-and-carry ideology where the party with the most money will buy votes by fire-by force.

A new class of disgruntled and sad politicians has emerged after the party primaries of the different political organizations.

Atiku leads the pack. He has changed political parties more than anyone in the last 10 years. The shame of that form of prostitution is not allowing him to make a new move yet. His efforts are now directed towards pulling down Jonathan. In fact, I hope he succeeds. Something or someone must pull down the PDP.

This evil party has destroyed and impoverished Nigerians since 1999. I’m still amazed that the evil PDP is still on the rampage when it should have been consumed by public rage far greater than what we now see in Tunisia and Egypt.

I mean these North Africans have better living conditions compared to most parts of sub-Saharan Africa. It’s like some races are used to suffering and smiling (and stupidly happy about it).

There has been no official denial from the PDP that money in form of raw dollars played a critical role in the selection of Jonathan as its flag bearer. So we take it as a known and open truth that millions or billions of dollars gave the candidacy to Jonathan.

What has now shocked me is when Harry Akande dumped the ANPP to join the PDP.

You see, Nigerian politicians are fraudsters. They won’t disappoint your low expectations. They are liars and blood suckers. Collectively their actions, attitudes and mentalities call for serious diagnoses. People have right of freedom and association. However they must try as much as possible not to infringe on the general intellectuality of the electorates or the rest of us.

By saying that he joined a party of like minds, Harry Akande who may have been behind the scene all these times, has now officially put himself in the ranks of men who destroyed Nigeria and made poverty a way of life for the common people. He should also stop the lie about moving Nigeria forward by joining the PDP.

PDP, move Nigeria where?

Why not say I am joining the PDP so that I can reap from the national treasury all the failed investments in the ANPP since 1998.

If he wants to boast of his billions and that he has no need to join the PDP for monetary gain or some potential ministerial position, then he could have stayed without a political party, at least until the forth coming charade has passed. There are better ways to show principles and advocacy of the Common Good.

ANPP may have its own rank of dictators and power brokers who have given the party’s flag bearer role to one Shekarau from Kano.

Cross carpeting does not remove the need for internal party re-organisation. Every political party in Nigeria owes itself the task of building strong democratic foundations. What has Akande been doing in the ANPP since 1998? Why has the party failed to have a structure that will ensure transparency and orderliness when it comes to electing the party’s presidential flag bearer?

There is no single manual that will be available to show how the problems plaguing Nigerian politics can be resolved.

What we must do, those of us who are either keen observers of our political space or even those who siddon-look, is to continue to remind ourselves of our collective failures and to emphasize a need to political reawakening.

Today’s politics in Nigeria is absolute rubbish. Baba n’la nonsense.

People who claim to belong to one political party or the other especially basket mouths who call themselves stakeholders should sit down and address the dynamics of their various political gangster groups with a view to making them real political parties.

And where do we begin to address the issue of followership that affects me and you reading this essay? My brother, my sister, we have a long way to go o jaare..! Some people don give up when the matter concern Nigeria. So them just dey follow follow to anywhere, waiting for their own turn to chop something out of Nigeria.

But we can stop the waiting game if we use the Egyptian or Tunisian approach.

We are Nigerians, we are special. You and I are waiting for God.

Those who cross the carpets and those who tanda gidagba know what is waiting for them. Those who looted as governors, senators, lawmakers and even as special assistants know what is waiting for them. It is elevation to the next level of looting, stealing, impunity and lawlessness.

This year 2011 our political prostitutes and the permanent custodians of stolen mandates in Aso Rock, Abuja, and everywhere in Nigeria will execute their agenda as usual. When the votes have been cast and stolen, they will continue to share the loot and we will keep waiting for manna from heaven.

This is Nigeria, a peculiar country. One day our collective mumuism will end. It will not be by prayers or votes but by actions. I am sure.
