Nigeria @ 60. A Totally Failed Country

Nigeria @ 60. A Totally Failed Country

By Adeola Aderounmu

Adeola

10 years ago, l wrote a piece that went viral/global. It was titled: Nigeria @ 50, what is there to celebrate? One would have thought that the provocations in the essay would lead to positive response and a desire to prove me (the author) wrong.

A decade later, Nigeria is worse off that she was 10 years ago. In fact, l had no desire to write this article you are reading now. Writing about Nigeria has more or less become uninspiring because the more we write, the more Nigeria heads for destruction. It´s like a freefall into a permanent jeopardy.

I am so pained about Nigeria l never wanted to associate with the name in public places. I wish that my name gives me the recognition that l am foremost a Yoruba man. I think it is time to let people wonder where the Yorubaman comes from and that, for better or worse, l would love to be called an Oduduwan.

Nigeria today, and more precisely since the year 1999 was returned to criminals in 2 major political parties, APC and PDP. For the purpose of this article, l would not be distinguishing between APC and PDP because any attempt to do so by anyone is gross stupidity.

You will have to read somewhere in my blog to find out why you should NEVER do that. But as a quick line of reasoning. You may want to answer these. In which political party was Obaseki in October 2019? In which political party is Obaseki in October 2020?

Nigerian politicians are hardcore criminals. They have only one mission, to enrich themselves and their families as well as their accomplices now and forever. The consequences are well documented. Nigeria is arguably a rich country on paper but a very impoverished country in terms of the more than 100 million people living in poverty, from hand to mouth, unsure of the next meal and contemplating vices that would sustain them.

The consequences of mal-governance and totallly stupid unitary system of governance is the near collapse of public education, the total decay of infrastructure, lack of housing policy and totally dilipitated, unmotorable roads across the entire country. Nigerians have no access to good health and they have to source for water using drilling machines or water vendors. I cannot write all the vices and the advancement of evil in Nigeria here. It is what l have done in the last 2 decades, or so.

Again, l am also quick to tell those asking me for solutions to shut up! We have given more than 1 million suggestions in the last 60 years. How many of them have been heeded! What type of solution is more important than the politicians doing the right thing! What?

What knd of solution is more important that the independent judiciary arresting criminals like Buhari, Babangida, Jonathan, Tinubu, Atiku and Obasanjo to start with? These criminals should be arrested by the police, and they should face charges ranging for crimes to humanity to outright corrruption.

If these actions are not possible and if the people cannot revolt but would rather watch and vote on BBN, then stop asking me for the solution. Let me do my part by writing on my blog.

A while ago, l wrote that my essays are no longer for this wasted generation (we have seen 3 wasted generations now) but for the unborn generations, if they choose to be free.

As the degeneration of Nigeria persists, the country is today the worst country to be born and live. A few years ago, l was the first person to define mass poverty in Nigeria but it took the plagiarism of the WHO to bring the issue to limelight. Still, we the people fold our hands and continued to ”thrive” in mass poverty.

Hopefully, it won´t take forever to know that, for countries that have not declared war officially, Nigeria is the greatest tragedy the world has seen since the end of the 2nd World War.

Often, l need to remind anyone living in Nigeria, especially those who think that they are doing fine, about the reality of their lives. As far as you are in Nigeria, you are living in poverty and you are living under poverty. It does not mater where you live or how ”stupidly” comfortable you think you are.

Nigeria as a geographical country is a country under the bondage of poverty, misery, terror, genocide and invariably war. Nigeria is the darkest country from sky. Fly at night and you will be shocked! The country has no electricity but the government charge the people monthly for services not provided. The government of Nigeria, whether APC or PDP is a criminal organisation. Who else charges or even increase the price of things that are not available?

I have no idea how many things l have lumped into this essay and how uncordinated it is. I am at work and trying to put this together. Today, there are agitations that Nigeria should be dismantled. I am 100% behind such agitations whilst l admit that it is not EUREKA.

Nigeria is a fraud. That is a fact. The major factor that would stand against the nations that may emerge from Nigeria is the people´s mentality. This mentality and way of thinking have been destroyed by more than 100 years of amalgamation and more than 60 years of stupidity by both military and civilians. So, any independence given to the regions might result to different wars. However, it seems that in the absence of the certainties that may unfold, the re-emergence of the regions is far more preferable than the slave camp that Nigeria has been since 1967 when the civil war broke out.

It is the same stupid Nigerian politicians that would dominate in the different nations that may emerge. It is the same people who prefered to fix BBN than Nigeria that would be in the regions. My point is that Nigeria faces a dilemma and there are no clear-cut solutions no matter what we do.

What must not be allowed to continue is the impunity in high places. Nigerian politicians are foolish, greedy, corrupt, senseless, merciless and possessed by demons that are insatiable in material and monetary comfort.

That free run on our commonwealth must not be allowed to continue. For me, putting a stop to that, by whatever means possible, is the most important thing that could be associated with the sorry state of Nigeria, a totally hopeless and failed country at 60.

Nigeria at 50: Two Wasted Generations!

Looking for a story about Nigeria´s 60th anniversary, let me refer you to the failures l wrote about 10 years ago. There is nothing new about Nigeria. Nigeria is the greatest tragedy the world is denying since the end of the second world war.

A View From The Scandinavian

By Adeola Aderounmu

This post should now read: Nigeria at 53, third generation on the wasteline!

Goodluck Jonathan and his crew are further driving this country into everlasting perdition.

Nigerian politicians are still looting and stealing the country blind.

Impunity is at a record high, executive recklessness unabated, corruption without equal on a global scale, militants are lords and terrorists are on the loose. They just murdered more than 50 students in their sleep.

Lawlessness abounds and the animal kingdom syndrome persists.

Nigeria is on the expressway to hell.

One of the major inexplicable factors that continue to keep Nigeria in the doldrums is the myopic tendency of the general population including surprisingly the literate sector. Suddenly we kept quiet despite the fact that we know that (USD110) N17b earmarked for Nigeria’s 50th anniversary celebration is not only ostentatious but also wicked, malicious, ill-timed…

Nigerian Government Tortures Nigerians

Nigerian Government Tortures Nigerians

(My quick reactions to recent crimes of the APC govt).

By Adeola Aderounmu

In 2020 Governments around the world are seeking ways and measures to cushion the pains and agonies that came with the corona (Covid-19) pandemic.

This is not the case in Nigeria (a failed and collapsing country).

The government has increased both the price of fuel and the cost of electricity.

As with my recent posts, I would not be writing a lenghty post about this.

I have been writing about Nigeria for almost 2 decades. Posts and blogs like mine have been ignored for several years, so it´s good in a way that the things l have written in the last 13 years or so are all on this blog.

You see, let me be clear. Nigerian politicians are criminals. From the presidency to the least local government, criminals, thieves, gangsters and very useless human beings are in charge.

I read a reaction recently that those who get into the political positions are a reflection of Nigeria and Nigerians. That is also discussable.

I don´t understand why or how anything good can come from the failed country called Nigeria. Nigeria is a fraud and should be dismantled.

Really, l don´t know which of my previous suggestions l need to elaborate to make my points.

The politicians are criminals.

The system of government (Unitary system) is a disgrace to the intellectuality of the black race. To rule, serve or participate in the system of government in Nigeria, you need to be crazy, insane, mad or a combination of all. Where in the world or how in the world can such a system works?

So, you see, you have criminals running a system of government that is designed to fail. Essentially, the system is a slave-master relation. Totally insane and unbelievable.

Nigeria is not going to work and the earlier the nations within it are set free, the better for a glimpse of hope that could appear 50 or 100 years from now.

The damage in the regions will take 2 to 4 generations to fix and no region has even started to care for the coming generations. Nigeria is a disaster!

The APC government should NEVER be allowed to see out it´s tenure. By now, not only should there be revolution in Nigeria, there should also be organised forces in the regions and the Ibos and Yorubas especially should have taken back their countries.

Of course, there will be rancours and probably fight in the regions. That may be inevitable against the backdrop of how the ”Nigerian mentality” has destroyed the psyche of the people since 1966 when they were thrown into disarray and permanent enemity.

Nigerians are hiding from the reality. By the time all the criminal politicians are arrested, or defeated by a revolution, all the monies stolen at home and abroad returned, all houses and properties acquired confiscated, there would be enough motivation to ensure that these criminals never emerge or succeed in the various regions or countries that would be set free from the useless and dying Nigeria.

And one more thing that Nigerians need to do away with is the foreign religions. I don´t know how we can make it sink into the medulla oblongata of Nigerians that churches and mosques are from the colonial masters and are instruments of slavery, torture and mental slavery.

The price of fuel is up. The cost of transportation will rise further. Food stuffs are already like gold in Nigeria as plastic food flood the market from China. So the government is making life difficult and China is flooding the Nigerian market with poisons. How long will it take before hunger and deaths level the population? There is terrorism, systematic genocide and all forms of evil that kill, maim and harm people daily.

Nigeria is darkest country from the sky. A single internation flight is all you need to confirm this. There is no electricity in Nigeria but the cost of it continues to increase.

The government, APC, is the most useless anyone has seen anywhere in the world. The government is the most fraudulent (specialist in advance fee fraud). How can Nigerians continue to pay for what they don´t have? What else do Nigerians need to stage a revolution and get rid of the APC government. PDP is not even an option. They are the same with the ease they crawl like morons from one to the other.

So much for not wanting to write a lot. It´s been almost 2 decades of writing and my anger today is 100 times more than in 2002 when l wrote why politicians steal.

When Nigerians are ready for freedom, they will do away with the name Nigeria. They will do away with both APC n PDP, they will cancel Abuja politics, call their politicans home and build for themselves new countries, new nations and new hopes for now and for the unborn generations.

Freedom is never served on a platter of gold. Never!
