Yorubaland: Going…Going…?

Young Yorubas are totally distracted. They are busy singing and dancing, mostly to useless songs, here and there. They are on the social media, mostly not making sense. The politicians are selling Yorubaland in the name of nonsensical 2023 political ambitions.

Who are these bastard politicians of Yorubaland?

Yorubaland: Going, Going, ?

By Adeola Aderounmu

It appears that Yorubaland, the land of our ancestors is up for grab. Let me explain.

I felt so insulted when the Fulani herdsmen started to terrorize the citizens of Ogun State and l must admit l had not followed the development to know what is going on now. Ogun state, my ancestral home, is of great concern to me. So, l’ll surely do more to find out what is going on.

If you are a concerned Yoruba citizen, you should be worried like l am now and we should be asking questions. What is going on, on our ancestral soil? What is going on in Western Nigeria? This is a region that our ancestors fought so hard to protect so that we may have a home.

We are struggling to keep cosmopolitan Lagos as many theorists are coming up with their stupid ideas of who owns Lagos. We face a lot of insults from every dick, tom, harry and lagoswannabe about our ancestral home and land.

The biggest insult has been inflicted on us in Ekiti State. The Fulani herdsmen, a terrorist group, hoisted their flags in Ekiti State. None of my Ekiti friends have written to me to express concerns. No one in the chat groups is talking about this.

Young Yorubas are out partying and dancing to all sorts of nonsense. Those who are not dancing useless dances are praying about everything. What a waste of life? The people who want to conquer you don’t just pray to their imported Arabian god, they also do something about it. They march to your land, they kill your fathers, they rape your mothers and daughters and instill fear in your minds.

You are doing nothing to protect your land, your ancestral home. It may not matter so much to you now, but you are doing a great disservice to the generations unborn. They would be subdued, and they would live as slaves (like you are) and even worse they’ll become second class citizens on their ancestral land.

This is what the Fulanis have done over the years. Historically, they are an ethnic group fond of conquest especially when left unchallenged and on a free rampage.

The Yoruba politicians have totally become bastards in their persons and attitudes. They are the culprits responsible for the bastardization of our land. They are moles in our midst and they will never be the source of the Yoruba rejuvenation.

Tinubu, Baba Kekere, Fayemi and Amosun all have their eyes on the 2023 presidency or vice-presidency. The last thing on their minds right now is the protection of the Yoruba race or the defense of the Yoruba Empire.

On a daily basis, these bastards are seen in or around Aso Rock licking the balls of the Fulanis. These are the cowards of Yorubaland. They will not defend their people because of their selfish political ambitions. When not in Aso rock, they are on the trails of the Fulanis in London and elsewhere partying and merrying while those blood thirsty people send their herdsmen on the physical conquest of Yorubaland.

The Yoruba race have never had it so bad. We are now represented by pure leeches and relentlessly foolish people who call themselves politicians. The Yorubas have never had it so damning. Unprotected. Denied. Lost in identity. Confused. Divided. Lost in purpose. Left to rot at the hands, blades, daggers and bullets of the enemy. This is an abomination!

The Fulani herdsmen should never have their flag flying for 1 minute on our ancestral home. Those who did should never have lasted 6 hours on our soil. They should have been packaged in trailers and sent up north to their terrorist zone.

It was really an eye sore to see Fayemi, the so-called coward governor of Ekiti State romancing Buhari at the time that terrorist herdsmen hoist their flags on the land where he is the chief security officer. Does Mr. Fayemi know what would happen to Yoruba citizens who dare to fly Oodua’s flag anywhere in Northern Nigeria. They would be sent back to the west in body bags!

Fayemi is not going to protect the people of Ekiti State or any part of Yoruba land because he wants to become the president of Nigeria in 2023. Is he sure there would be a Nigeria in 2023? The Yoruba people are not telling their politicians the truths that they need to hear. What is wrong with us?

In a recent article, l stated that my essays are now for the future generation because the present generation of Nigerians especially those from western Nigerian willfully living as slaves on their motherland have chosen not to see or understand how their lives can be changed for the better by aggressively and collectively in one voice pursuing the agenda that would change the course of history. Yorubas, we need to act now so that our children and grandchildren can live prosperously.

wp-15777312662766606664982313301463.jpg

 

The unitary system of government has not worked since 1966. It is pure madness and stupidity to think it will ever work. We need the Nigeria that existed before the two useless coups of 1966. The alternative is the outright disintegration of the expired British colony. It is just common sense that would set the people of Nigeria free. Common sense has proven to be scarce since 1966, sadly.

I hope this article would be shared far and wide because somebody needs to wake up to defend Yorubaland. We need to secure Yoruba land before any form of dialogue or diplomacy can be applied. Our land back first, then dialogue later! There is no time to waste and we need to stop talking and start acting.

The custodians of our tradition, our culture, our heritage and our survival ought to get out of their shells and secure the entire perimeter and geometrical area of Yorubaland. We don’t need prayer warriors, we need field marshals of wars and we need the artillery to defend our territory. Stop beating about the bush or bushes.

Those who don’t see problems with the gradual occupation of our land won’t be here 100 or 200 years from now when the invasion and occupation would be total if we don’t stop all these systematic and aggressive takeovers. Every piece of land that has been taken must be retrieved.

It is time for the Yorubas that have balls to tell terrorist Buhari to his face that this ain’t right and it ain’t gonna continue. We need men with balls to tell Buhari that he is a terrorist and his terrorist or fulanisation agenda cannot go unabated. This is what it is. Why are we afraid to unite and fight the evil once and for all? What is wrong with us?

Young Yorubas cannot and should never rely on the likes of Tinubu or Fayemi, or Amosun. They are unwise because of ordinary bread.

Even as l call on the custodians of our race, l am aware of the damage that politics and people like Tinubu have done to the traditional institutions. Our Obas and Chiefs are now paying homage to touts especially in Lagos. This is so sad, so disheartening.

Who is out there that can save the Yoruba race? Young Yorubas need to lend themselves and one another senses. As you sing and dance to all the manners of useless songs this yuletide, your ancestral home is diminishing. You may feel less concerned, but the generations unborn are slipping into everlasting slavery. They will mess up your graves and curse the days of their lives too.

A stitch in time saves nine. In all states where the politicians are ball suckers, our people in Yoruba land need to know that they are their own protectors. You cannot laugh at another man’s misfortune now because it may be your turn tomorrow. It is better to start organizing ourselves now before it is too late. In unity we will find strength to defend ourselves and defeat the enemy encroaching on our ancestral land

We must be prepared. No other tribes or ethnic groups should be flying their useless, rotten, terrorist-infected flags on Yorubaland. We must unite by all means and fight this evil out of our land. It is now or never.

It was a good day for friendship. The type of friendship that feels more like a family bond. My former schoolmates at Festac Grammar School that l fondly named Klass ‘89 gathered 30 years after at Radisson Hotel in Lagos to celebrate a wonderful reunion.

img-20191214-wa01436061499100131356747.jpg

I was missing in action physically. But l got a lot of the actions through our Whatsapp group. Even my cousin Toyin Okikiolu gave me a live call. l have missed her and all our former school mates. I reminded her that she is my little sister but she will always argue, my dearest aburo.

img-20191214-wa01536695280906110932016.jpg

Here you will see some of the images from the reunion.

img-20191214-wa01385638241698727054608.jpg

I am sure it was a moment for sharing a lot of happy things from the past and the present. If I was there, l would cry tears of joy.

img-20191214-wa01898970589458437237071.jpg

On the live video, l could hear them calling at me, “Gadhaffi”, “Gadhaffi”.

 

I salute all my mates worldwide for what we have accomplished. I am so moved by those who flew from overseas primarily for this purpose and to spend a little time with friends and family afterwards. What a wonderful way to spend the end of 2019.

img-20191214-wa01039013438488218026165.jpg

I salute the organizing committee for this great reunion. What a landslide! I congratulate all the active and non-active members on this accomplishment. Every little comment and every little effort to this reunion played its part.

 

There are areas of improvement and l am sure we have learnt great lessons on the way and on the great day itself. “Learning by doing” is a mantra that works for any facet of life and a reunion is no exception.

The Man Who Is Responsible For Nothing

Don’t ask me how we think in Nigeria. I am struggling with the answer too.  We may have to resurrect John Dewey-the author of the book “How We Think”.

But think about this:

A professor was asked to assist a criminal to rule Nigeria. On the night of the televised debate, Osinbajo-the professor, kept screaming “he (Buhari) doesn’t know, he doesn’t know”. Buhari does not even know the meaning of animal husbandry, amongst many other simple things. Is Nigeria not a scam? Why is everybody quiet?

The Man Who Is Responsible For Nothing

By Adeola Aderounmu

20191213_081547153510796382790181.jpg

Since 2015, Nigeria has been led by the APC-Buhari mandate, probably the most useless and clueless government ever. The useless PDP reign between 1999 and 2015 now looks messianic. The present ruler of Nigeria, Buhari, is a man who is responsible for nothing!

General Buhari was helped and rigged into power largely by the help of Bola Tinubu and Olusegun Obasanjo. When Buhari had tried previously with his might, he failed woefully on at least 3 or 4 occasions. His alliance with the South-West eventually brought him back to power in 2015. His first illegal stint was through treasonable act-as a cruel, thoughtless and extreme dictator in 1983.

The 2015 arrangement and ascension to power is a very laughable one as a professor of law, one Yemi Osinbajo was made his deputy. Buhari has no standard, formal education and he forged his certificates on at least 2 occasions.  Those offences made Buhari not only guilty of treasonable felony (as a coup plotter) but other criminal offences punishable by imprisonment. Invariably, a criminal is ruling Nigeria (again) since 2015.

A professor was asked to assist a criminal to rule Nigeria!!!

Don’t ask me how we think in Nigeria. I am struggling with that too. For as long as he would live, Buhari will never develop intellectual cognitivism to rule a clan, let alone a village. But he is the ruler of Nigeria. The implications are telling and would be useful for students of history and for the future of Nigeria, if she would ever emerge from this modern slavery.

It is now time to continue to write all we know about Buhari. This is important so that history is not distorted and since Nigerians have very short memories and are eager to move on no matter the problems, it is imperative that we document some issues before they are left unattended.

There is no way Buhari could have escaped this bashing because we are in the era of open network and the print media is beyond the newspapers or television stations that would be closed down if they dare to write freely.

Since 1999 when Nigeria returned to this pseudo-democracy, some of us have been here to express our views. There is no government in the world that can stop the freedom of the open press. It won’t happen now, not ever. Buhari and his handlers should just brace up because this press will be here when they are long gone (and be dust), doing what it does best.

At best, Buhari has become a complete nuisance to himself, his handlers and the country called Nigeria. In this essay, l want to describe Buhari as a man who is responsible for nothing. The examples are many, but l will pick a few.

Mrs. Salome Abuh was gruesomely murdered at her residence in Kogi State on November 16. This is a political assassination and it is logical to insinuate that political opponents masterminded the assassination. Even the robbers paraded for the crime have denied involvement. Has anyone heard a speech from Buhari on this assassination under his watch? Any word from the Kogi State governor? APC, just like the PDP is a murderous political party. No sympathy for human life and no acknowledgement of a state or nation in sorrow, no matter the evil perpetrated.

For all that has happened to Omoyele Sowore and the inconveniences his family is put through about the ugly situations, Buhari has pushed the blame to the DSS. It is as if there is a republic of the DSS operating within Nigeria the same way the Boko Haram republic is having a flow in Northern Nigeria.

Buhari is not responsible for the plight of Sowore. He is not responsible for the republic of Boko Haram in northern Nigeria. What is Buhari responsible for? What is Buhari good for? I am sorry for that Femi Adesina, the messenger of the evil regime. I have no time for him. We await his useless book after this nonsense life he is living.

Buhari’s government is not obeying court orders. Whose fault is that?

The Supreme court judges and their judgement on the electoral dispute between Atiku and Buhari is one reason I believe the law profession is fast becoming a useless one in Nigeria. I am not only bewildered by the colonial wigs those old fools have on their heads, l am also never going to recover from the shock of how judgements are bought and paid for in Nigeria.

Shall we not hold Buhari accountable for the sham and shame the judiciary has evolved to since 2015? Has anyone spoken to the Chief Justice of Nigeria in recent days. The chief Justice to be best of my knowledge as a citizen of Oduduwa land is an illiterate. That man, Tanko is dumb and does not know what he is doing. Just like Buhari, he cannot express himself or make himself comprehensible.

The invasion of the court of law by Buhari’s attack dogs’ aka DSS was the final burial of judiciary in Nigeria. Good luck to all present and future lawyers. I am wondering what the f*** purpose they serve when their profession is being rendered useless and worthless, in Nigeria.

Buhari blamed and continues to blame the PDP for all that is wrong with the Nigerian economy since 2015. My positions in 2015 when this crazy government came to power were:

  1. Don’t get things worse than the PDP left it. Worst case scenario, if Nigeria does not get better, don’t let it get worse under your watch
  2. If you have no solutions, you don’t need to contest or promise to fix the problems
  3. If you have no solutions, f*** off, resign and hand over to someone with ideas or knowledge. That is how things work in the developed world.

 

From the look of things, Buhari came to power to serve his selfish interests and to advance the course of the people of northern Nigeria and their brothers from sub-Saharan Africa. He wants to bring every dick, tom and harry to Nigeria from 2020.

Really? Is Buhari normal? My answer is NO! He is not!

I am not going to proliferate my essay with all the abundant evidence to his deadly agenda. You need to get your lazy ass up and follow the changes that have taken place since Buhari became a ruler in 2015.

Buhari is not accepting the responsibility for the economic woes in Nigeria. He has no solutions, but he is holding tight to power. This is the mentality that makes Africa, the most of it anyway, a continent of interest. You see empty brains conquering their people, enslaving them and bringing them to economic ruins and mass poverty. The most amazing part is that the people sit tight and struggle.

Since many African countries were lumped together by the colonialists, the people lack the common front and effrontery to speak in unity and act for a common reason. There is no reason under the sun why a dullard, a man who is responsible for nothing to be ruling or leading the most populous Black country on earth. Buhari is still standing because of the fear of the north, and he moved all the military powers up north both physically and structurally.

Buhari would not have become anything in Oduduwa land because he has limited sense and limited mental capabilities. But in a unitary system of government which Nigeria adopted after the two useless coups of 1966 and since the end of the civil war in 1970, even a stupid person who has no sense can become your chief justice.

So, this is where Nigeria is. People are afraid to rise up because they may be arrested like Sowore, and incarcerated. Buhari has locked up people both openly and in secrets. We are back to the dark days. We never left anyway. We fell to APC and Buhari in 2015, a real con party with a tyrant at the helm.

Invariably in the end, the people get the type of rulers they deserve. There are no true leaders in Nigeria. The elderly and even the young achievers in time constitute themselves to some sort of sycophants and rulers that should be worshipped, obeyed or listened-to.

The problems of Nigeria did not start and will not end at the feet of Buhari. That much l have written about even since the days of Yar’ Adua.

It is of course evident that the unitary system of government is stupid. We are ridiculous in Nigeria because we are running a system of government that doesn’t work since 1966 and we kept at it. I have never seen anything more challenging (mentally) in my entire life. How can you be doing something wrong since 1966 and keep it going. I will never get it!

The other ridiculous thing is that the government is failing not only at the federal level, but also at the state and local levels. It is logical to conclude that these are symptoms of the unitary system. It may also be worth looking closer at this interplay. I don’t know it all.

What l know is that when you have a man who is responsible for nothing leading a useless and stupid system of government, then it is not surprising that the eureka in 2015 was the greatest scam in post-independence Nigeria. Nigeria will never make it under a unitary system of government, APC or PDP. Nigeria will never make if under a block-head who is responsible for nothing.

We can keep praying, our parents did. It seems we have handed over this line of slavery to our  children too.

I Warned You: “Never, Never Stand With Tyranny”!

The fact that Buhari, a well-established con man, a man guilty of treasonably felony on more than one accasion and a man who committed Nigeria’s first international kidnapping crime continues to get away with crimes almost on a daily basis speaks volume of the nature of the people living in present day Nigeria.

…all those who are suggesting that Nigeria will never succeed as a country will be proven right someday.

I Warned You: Never, Never Stand With Tyranny

By Adeola Aderounmu

20191206_1846446715563288106812896.jpg

On the 10th of January 2016, l published an article with the headline: You Should Never, Never Stand With Tyranny. Among the few things Nigerians don’t take for granted are messages from their spiritual warlords or overseers and now insta-influencers. Every other thing that possibly makes sense but emanating from people they don’t recognize or reckon with are quickly thrashed, not read or totally ignored.

Let me digress, today the educational world is built on a number of old theories that were redundant for several decades and some for nearly a century. They have been rediscovered and their relevances have taken their rightful place in the academic and educational world.

Bruner, Vygotskij and a lot of individuals whose work were not appreciated in the last and present centuries have returned to the front pages of learning theories that are now shaping the world. Even Vygotskij’s theory of defectology is now an integral part of special needs education.

The point l am trying to make here is that all those who are suggesting that Nigeria will never succeed as a country will be proven right someday. It is sad that they won’t be here then. It does not matter what you and l think today and on which side of the divide we pitch out tents. We will be long dead when the coming generations would find their bearings and spit on all our graves, home and abroad. Again, it does not matter what you think. It would be a shame and a disgrace that we did not take the bulls by the horns. We are not conquering our fears. We may never do.

We are drifting, hoping for the best. We are doing things the same way, hoping for different results. I feel so sorry for the brain-dead Buharists, and even heist-hope non-Buharists alike. The majority are on one side of the divide or the other whereas no one should belong to either side of sad historical occurrences. I feel great sympathy, and now empathy, for those wrestling Nigeria, a well-known and internationally acclaimed failed aggregation- with Buhari or APC.

For about 2 decades, l have written about almost all the categories of Nigerians and l develop a feeling of pathological-tautology trying to highlight these categories. I write less nowadays not because l am tired but because l have so many things going on at the moment.

Another reason is because when l browse my blog, l see that all matters have been addressed. I think my blog will be useful for the revolution that will take place when the present useless generations have wiped themselves off the face of the earth, leaving the world with sad stories of enslavements and horrid tales of humanity.

Again, some people actually think Nigeria is working because for one reason or the other, they do not have to kidnap or rob a bank to eke out a living. Some have been advantageously placed all their lives that they lost the meaning and essence of living. In Nigeria, living a fairly good life is seen and treated as a means of oppression to the disadvantaged. If you have an open mind, you would have done a lot of mental research like l have done. Why are we competing rather than living a common, good life?

Some people are so selfish, and probably foolish they think that those who are socially disadvantaged are not prayerful or not industrious enough. Where is the level playing field? The history and the anthropology of the Nigerian could be developed and studied in an entire academic faculty, hence l dare not thread further. But l know what l know. You know what you know. If you think what is going on in Nigeria is true picture of humanity, one of us needs to be in chains.

This essay could last forever and could address all issues but l will keep it very vague because l have been thinking about Nigeria every second and every minute of my free time. I hope the headline did not mislead you. It is true anyway.  My heart aches and l am probably lucky not to have a heart attack yet. That is how much l process Nigeria daily.

The fact that Buhari, a well-established con man, a man guilty of treasonably felony since the early 1980’s and a man who committed Nigeria’s first international kidnap continues to get away with crimes almost on a daily basis speaks volume of the nature of the people living in Nigeria. That explains my suggestion for the devotion of an entire university faculty to the anthropology of the Nigerian.  We need to know what is going on in the mind of the Nigerian that made slavery so convenient to perpetrate. What makes resistance and revolution impossible? What is the real reason why the nations entrapped in Nigeria cannot emerge to start the actual long walk to freedom?

If this generation of Nigerians dare to get close to the rest of the world before they die, Buhari should be historic in the next 48 – 72 hours. But that is not going to happen as Nigeria itself is a fraud. The answers to my questions would be useful for the coming generation. They have my best wishes!

I left the arguments in public spaces because my blog gives me the freedom to express my feelings. I think l am full of reasonable dose of rage. I put my rage in studying. I put the energy into doing things and getting many things done at the same time and in record time. Therefore, l am very opportune to have this life, this freedom. I am 100% sure l would have given it up if l never left Nigeria. I am not a saint, but l am sure the only way to stop me from what l am writing now is to get rid of me.

I stayed back in Sweden when Yar Adua was picking up bloggers, and torturing them. Yes, some of you don’t know this fact. But I didn’t show up when a friend sent me a message to let me know what was going on. Where is Yar Adua today? In 2015 a bill to send bloggers and internet warriors to prison was proposed. It probably did not get far.

So, the new bill to do the same is not new. It is just that we forget things so easily in Nigeria.

I am going to end this essay without really making it clear where l was coming from and where l am heading. Now, l write for myself. I write for the future and for the coming generations that will love freedom and never settle for slavery.

But if you actually find a meaning in this essay, welcome to the club of the intellectuals. At least, we almost became geniuses too. After writing for almost 20 years, l have come to the conclusion that my essays, like Vygotskijs, would be useful for the unborn generations. That’s how l think now.
