The Invincible Presidency

By Adeola Aderounmu

The Nigerian presidency in 2020, take it or leave it, is a make believe.

Have you ever seen anywhere in the world where the country is under fire, where there is chaos, riot, murder, assassinations, protests and to cap it all, full-blown terrorism and all the president of the country can do is to prepare himself for a recorded television broadcast?

But this is the portion of Nigerians first from 2015 to 2019 and then from 2019 till date. Don’t ask me how Nigerians, supposedly some of the most intelligent people in the world, ended up with a moron in the seat of power. I cannot explain it all.

Truth is, all you read from the internet, all you hear on radio and television about the presidency in Nigeria are actually statements and press releases from various personal assistants attached to the office.

If you are reading this on this day 30th of october 2020 and you have thought that you have heard or listened to Buhari in the last of couple of days or weeks, you are a gullible person. It is about time you start thinking, critically.

Nigerian burns. Massive protests. Terrorists own part of the North. There is unrest. People are hungry. There was almost a state of anarchy. There was nobody to come out to address the press and answer questions about their stewardship in office.

The Nigerian presidency as far as l am concerned is VACANT. Whoever occupies that post does not exist in our physical realm.

Look at this situation. Even in an organisation as small as a primary school, whenever something goes wrong, the headmistress or headmaster summons the teachers and then the pupils. There is an assembly and there is an interaction between the pupils and the leadership of the school. In any organisation at all, the head comes out, stands out, takes responsibilities, ask questions, answer questions.

When was the last time “a Buhari” faced the press for 30 minutes? 5 minutes?

The last time l saw a certain “Buhari” faced the press, it did not end well. At that point, at one of the most embarrassing moments of our lives as Nigerians, we saw a “Buhari” who owned cows but didn’t know the meaning of animal husbandry.

That Buhari is either braindead or perfectly senile.

A man who has no brain, no memory and no consciousness of self and environs is who you want me to believe is in charge of the “presidency” in Abuja, Nigeria. I am sorry, you are mad.

As my readers would have observed in recent times, l have not been blogging frequently in recent months.

The reason is because l have other things that have taken my time. However, l am very active on instagram and twitter because they are microblogs and relatively easier to access and make comments/observations.

I won’t write longer on this topic.

But l want you to stop ascribing all the press releases on the internet and media house to Buhari. The Buhari in Abuja is not in charge of Nigeria. For the majority of the time, it is the press secretary and robotic special assistants that meet and fashion press releases.

The most puzzling thing is: on whose account are they dishing out all the PRESS RELEASES, comments, reactions and statements attributed to the president/presidency? You need to be worried.

APC and PDP are birds of same feathers and agents of the same criminal organisation. Therefore, you won’t hear the truth soon, not as long as these 2 criminal organisations run the show in Nigeria.

I will also like to let you know that expressing shock about the people who rule Nigeria is actually the main shock for me.

In Nigerian politics, all the politicians are criminals.

In Nigerian politics, even if you are not a criminal, you are on your way to becoming one.

The unitary system of government is an embarrassment to the intellectuality of the black race. In Nigeria, it shows lack of common sense and absence of common good.

No country in the world can prosper under a unitary system of government.

It is worse when the custodians are self-serving, moronic, selfish, wicked and demonic.

What is the way out?

Abolish the unitary system of government (and it wouldn’t matter anyway if there is a brain-dead president anywhere or not).

Let the regions or nations within Nigeria manage their resources. This will boost competitions between the different regions. The citizens or people in the regions that fail to develop will react quickly to bad governance or corruption.

Nigeria was at her best before the 1966 coups because no region wanted to be left behind.

I hear the youths of/in Nigeria are planning to revolt massively in 2023. Good idea. Let me predict that if that happens (l have my doubts about a lot of things, including the oneness of Nigeria actually) the youths would go into the cycle of idiocy, corruption and they would massively contribute to the underdevelopment of Nigeria.

The unitary system of government will turn good men and women to demons and morons. This has been the case since the 1966 coups. Unless the system is changed or reverted, all other attempts are cosmetics and dead on arrival.

For now, let us focus on why Nigeria has an invincible presidency. The unitary system of government is loaded with deceits, lies, corruption and a compelling tendency to turn willing men and women to demons and monsters. Ask Femi Adesina. Ask Garba. Ask Tolu, and ask Onochie.

2020 Nigeria: Confined In Corruption And Poverty

Nigeria must be dismantled, totally. Nigeria must end for the nations entrapped within it to emerge and begin afresh. It is only competition between the different regions or nations within Nigeria that can reduce corruption and eradicate poverty

2020 Nigeria: Confined In Corruption And Poverty

Adeola Aderounmu

This is the 27th day of July, 2020 and Nigeria as it stands is still being ruled by hardcore criminals and gangsters spread across 2 criminal organisations called APC and PDP.

The central government is headed by APC headed by a criminal called Muhammadu Buhari.

For those who are not used to the useless form of democracy in Nigeria, a quick recap is that Nigeria left military rule in 1999 and civilians took over. From 1999 to 2015, a criminal organisation called PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) led the Nigerian government and what followed was massive corruption as usual and extreme spread of poverty and hopelessness. In 2015, Nigerians thought a change had come and voted for another criminal organisation called APC (All Progressive Congress).

(Note: for details of Nigeria´s political history, please look elsewhere).

In this month of  July alone, the entire world has been watching the drama unfolding in one of the several corrupt government institutions in Nigeria, the NDDC. I am not able to provide the details of what has transpired, sadly.

My take is that the problem is not just the NDDC. Everything about governance in Nigeria is wrong and crazy.

The NDDC has always been corrupt. The NDDC will always be corrupt. Check out NNPC too. Check out INEC, NEPA, the National Assembly, the Legislative arm, the Judiciary, the states and the governors, the Executives (presidency and ministers), state commissioners and everywhere and everything about government in Nigeria. What you see is different aggregation of criminals and criminal minds in public offices.

Corruption is not limited to public institutions in Nigeria. The private sector is also ripping Nigeria and Nigerians into pieces. You can start from the TELECOMS for a preview. They will milk poor Nigerians to starvation and deaths.

Nigeria is corruption personified. It is a country confined in a systemic culture of corruption.  For the past 2 decades, this has been my theme on my essays, articles and blog entries.

More than 30 years ago, there was an article in one of Nigeria´s newspaper raising a question about the common man in Nigeria and his survival based on his meagre wage. The writer concluded that it was just impossible to live on such a wage. Today, the common man in Nigeria earns comparatively less (in dollar rate). How does anyone in Nigeria live on N30 000 minimum wage monthly? How is that possible? I should address this in another article.

Specifically Nigerian politicians from all across Nigeria are mentally deranged, have low cerebral functions, are grossly incompetent, possess unbelievable, insatiable lusts for material possessions. Their collective stupidity and ineptitude continues to confine Nigeria to the league of poor countries, poor citizens and poverty-plagued existence not worthy of lower animals.

My aim today is to remind you as l have done in almost 2 decades that the person called the president of Nigeria is Buhari and he is leading probably the most corrupt government ever in Africa´s history. Like l always write, l thought Jonathan and the PDP gang would be the worst we had seen at the end of 2015. But this criminal called Buhari and the APC crew blew my mind away with the latest dimension of corruption in Nigeria since 2015.

The most annoying thing about this is the different nations enslaved in Nigeria, taking turns in different capacities and contributing to the ruins. I have mentioned names in many articles and it is becoming old fashioned. Still, take a little time and follow criminals like Akpabio and Oshiomhole if you want to have an idea of the problems. Then take time to follow all the politicians that are prominent, write their names and add corruption in a google search.

Buhari himself started stealing before 1977 but in 1977 he made it official as a minister of petroleum. Do you know how many years that is, from 1977 to 2020, that Buhari has had his hands in Nigeria´s public treasury?

Those aso rock dogs called special assistants or media assistants for things and nonsenses are just looking after their daily bread. Femi Adesina comes to mind. This is another criminal mind. When this is over, he would follow the lines of Segun Adeniyi and Reuben Abati in writing some stupid books or memos. Yorubas called such people didinrins.

Nigeria must be dismantled, totally. Nigeria must end for the nations entrapped within it to emerge and begin afresh. It is only competition between the different regions or nations within Nigeria that can reduce corruption and eradicate poverty.

The Yorubas  and the Ibos especially are very unfortunate to be clumped with the rest of Nigeria. These are ethnic groups that can survive on their own and rule the world in all ramifications. The Niger Delta would have toed the same line of progress and prosperity.

The North is lazy, but it would have emerged based on the competition from the other regions around or close to it.

Together in Nigeria, all these nations remain slaves to the colonial masters and the dumb ass politicians and elites who remain the most formidable criminal organisation in Africa. This is the bane of Nigeria.

These are some of the problems facing Nigeria. As it stands, like l always write, Nigeria will never, never make it under the present criminal political arrangement. Let me tell you, there will always be people and organisations that will prosper under the situation in Nigeria. You will be stupid to use your personal progress as a measure of the workability of Nigeria, a rotten country with a despicable high morality rate.

I don´t even want to remind you of the other things that make Nigerians less human. I don´t even want to start with our ladies who don´t know that they are mentally deranged with all the nonsense wigs on their heads. Our boys have all taken to rituals and cultism. Terrorists are made locally and internationally and dumped across the area called Nigeria. What is left of being African? What is left of being a Yoruba? Ibo? Kanuri? Bini?

Africa is long gone and the nations that should help rebuild are fading away not just because of poverty and corruption but also as a result of the total destruction of the cultural heritage of motherland-Africa.

Specifically Nigerian politicians from all across Nigeria are mentally deranged, have low cerebral functions, are grossly incompetent, possess unbelievable, insatiable lusts for material possessions. Their collective stupidity and ineptitude continues to confine Nigeria to the league of poor countries, poor citizens and poverty-plagued existence not worthy of lower animals.

Covid-19 And Black Lives Matter

You can be your own greatest enemy and you cannot win a battle when you are the oppressed and standing on the same side as your oppressors.

Covid-19 And Black Lives Matter

By Adeola Aderounmu

I have not written so much in recent weeks/months. This is the 26th day of June 2020. I did not even write anything about June the 12th this year. I am sure l still have a lot of blog entries from the past that would suffix on that topic.

This year so far has been dominated by the covid-19 pandemic and BLM-Black Lives Matter demonstrations. I have so far refrained from writing about both until now.

Researchers in Norway have put to rest the origin of the virus. In a report released and later erased on Forbes, the researchers concluded that the virus was man-made which we have suspected all along. Covid-19 is China-American invention. If the world can speak with one voice they will call out both countries and the purpose of their evil action would be ascertain.

But for as long as no one is bold enough to ask the real questions, then let all of humanity continue to suffer and grief the death of our loved ones.

I wish l could address the world at the same time how l feel about the BLM. I wish I could address Africa and then Nigeria about my feeling about the BLM.

If I stay on the my lane as someone who originated from the country called Nigeria, it becomes a very personal thing and my views are not going to be the same as an ignorant black man in Nigeria fighting the BLM cause without looking at himself in the mirror to see the reflection of himself-a hypocrite.

Black lives has never mattered in Nigeria since the first of october 1960. It got worse between 1967 and 1970 when black people in the geographical region called Nigeria massacred one another in a bitter civil war.

If you are an African scholar of history (which l am not), you can do a chronological order of the wars and violence in Africa since the end of slavery and colonisation. How well has the black race fared in running her own affairs? It is always easy to blame the influence of the outside world but do you know how easily Africa and Africans will set themselves free by becoming united and determined to take their rightful place in the global order of things.

Africa can hold the world by its balls and finally taste freedom.

I would stay on my lane because it´s too easy to get involved in Africa and the global mess.

You can read my blog for all the evil things that Nigerian politicians have unleashed on the citizens since 1960. Do Nigerian lives matter? Really?

In Nigeria, the politicians are either former criminals or present criminals. Look at the value of life of an average Nigerian, look into my eyes and tell me a Nigerian life matter. Fuck you if you dare tell me that!

Even a Nigerian politician has no value on his own life or the lives of those he loves and hate.

Do you need examples?

When Babangida´s wife was sick, where was she treated? She was treated abroad and she died abroad. If Babaganida loved his wife, she would have been treated in a hospital that he built out of all the several billions of dollars he stole. So, look at this this way, he hated the people so much he stole and impoverished them. He hated himself so much he cannot provide for his health care in Nigeria. The lives of the people don´t matter. His life and that of his family never mattered. Do you still think black lives matter?

Look at Yar Adua and Ajimobi. It is old fashioned not to speak evil of the dead. Who is going to leave this planet alive anyway? Both men were governors of their respective states in Nigeria for 8 years. When they got sick, they could not be treated in their respective states. Were these normal human beings? Did their lives matter? To whom? Themselves? Do you think black lives matter to them when for 8 years, they did not think of providing basic and standard healthcare even for themselves and their families in their own states of origin?

If you read my blog from 2007, you will find one thousand reasons why Black Lives don´t matter in Nigeria.

As you read, nobody knows who is in charge of Nigeria. But today Nigeria is running a government of the corrupt, by the corrupt, for the corrupt. How can Black Lives Matter when the purpose of politics is to steal, create criminals and spread poverty? Help me to understand how black lives matter in Nigeria.

We are clamouring for regional government. We are shouting for change and independence of Biafra, Oduduwa, Arewa and the Niger Delta Republic. What we are not talking about is what we are going to do with the evil in the hearts of men. We are wicked, selfish, and very, very thoughtless!

If Black Lives would matter in Nigeria, we need to talk and l want to be involved.

I need to know how you think and what you are doing to emancipate the black race.

I wish l have the time to blog all my thoughts and everything in my head. My examples are not the only ways to view black lives matter and the way get the black race out of bondage. An African woman is wearing a wig and is shouting black lives matter. What happened to the African hair that makes her African? You threw away your identity and your culture and you think your lives matter. Help me understand how you think. You abandon your religion and demonised your ancestors and you are shouting black lives matter.

You can be your own greatest enemy and you cannot win a battle when you are the oppressed and standing on the same side as your oppressors.

Our lives begin to matter the day we unite as Africans…

What happened to N13 billion Aso Clinic’s Budget?

So, if the people rejoice again at the death of the next prominent politician, please let them rejoice. If stealing, looting and spreading poverty make the politicians happy, then their deaths should make the people rejoice. What goes around, comes around. Death is no exception. Happiness, irrespective of the source, cannot be an exception.

What happened to N13 billion Aso Clinic’s Budget?

By Adeola Aderounmu

To understand the evil that has been perpetrated by both the PDP (1999-2015) and the APC (2015 – 2020), all you have to do is to remember their promises and what they delivered.

Kyari_tabell

In 2016, this APC government budgeted more for the Aso rock clinic than all the federal teaching hospitals in Nigeria. Let that sink in your cerebral as you read on.

In this table is the total budget for Aso Clinic since 2015. Amounts are estimates in billion and millions.

Year Amount (N)
2015 3 940 000 000
2016 3 870 000 000
2017 3 200 000 000
2018 1 030 000 000
2019     823 000 000
2020     723 000 000
Total 13 595 000 000

Keep the budget in mind and read on.

One of the undeniable facts about the Buhari-APC mandate is that one Abba Kyari (who passed on recently) was until his death the mastermind of this Buhari regime after (not before) it’s inauguration. In this essay, l would limit his influence to what he knew about the Aso rock clinic.

The reasons why Nigeria, a mere geographical region, is in such a bad shape today can be discussed from now till eternity because everybody has his or her own opinions.

But another fact is that for one reason or the other, majority of Nigerians have myopic views and they forget about yesterday hoping that a divine or an invisible force will come with a soothing balm the next day. How many people remember, or care about what transpired in 2017 under this evil Buhari-APC mandate?

 

Abba Kyari’s life is not more important than Edith’s mother who died because no hospital outside of Onitsha would admit her to treat her heart problem. Kyari’s life is not worth more than all the hundreds of children who will die today in Nigeria because of malaria.

In 2017, the Reps started a probe that covered the tenure of both Mr. Jonathan and Mr. Buhari with respect to the Aso Clinic. It was in response to Mrs. Buhari who (rightly or wrongly) brought the attention of the whole world to the deplorable state of the Aso clinic. What did Nigerians do with that information? How did the investigation end? Was Jonathan summoned for questioning? Did Buhari go to the Reps to explain why the clinic was in a deplorable condition? How useful are the Reps in this type of enquiry?

Let me repeat one of the reasons Nigeria became a hell on planet earth. Nigerians go to sleep, pray and hope that tomorrow will be better or that solutions come from above. Zebrudaya will say, faa, faa… faa….faaa….fowl!

Abba Kyari as the main man of Buhari, actually the chief of staff, must know that Aso Rock Clinic was in a deplorable state. With all that we now know about the man, surely he had knowledge of where the money went too. This man wedge so much power that Osinbajo almost became an invisible entity in the government he helped to bring to power through his religion.

Abba Kyari became the alfa and omega of the Buhari government. Like many other foolish, arrogant and senseless Nigerian politicians, he preferred to be an outpatient at a London hospital rather than ensuring that the billions and excess budget allocated to Aso clinic was put to work.

At the height of the stupidity of the APC-Buhari mandate, Mr. Buhari stopped all “outsiders” from visiting the clinic, restricting it to himself and the inner caucus. Still when he got sick, Mr. Buhari went abroad. Do you know the meaning of stupid? Do you know what it means to lack common sense? Even when his son was involved in a reckless auto accident, Mr. Buhari flew him abroad.

If Nigeria was a country, we can count in one thousand ways why fools, reckless and worthless people would never smell the political offices. The presidency would be reserved for a person with functional brain cells and effective cognitivity.

When Buhari and his family were going abroad to “rest” or seek medical tourism, Nigerians (if Nigeria was a country) would have united and end such stupidities. It was this democratic virus called kovikk one nine in Aso rock that exposed Abba Kyari as an outpatient clinic for a London hospital as well.

The first point I tried to establish here is that Mr. Kyari does not like himself. If he does, then he had no common sense when he was alive. Common sense should allow people with privileges to take advantages of opportunities. One way would be to upgrade Aso clinic to a world class health center because of unexpected or unforeseen circumstances. So, No! Abba kyari, (like Buhari and Yar Adua) did not have common sense!

If you want to see an example of a man with common sense, look at Boris Johnson. He got sick and was admitted at the center of London. That is sense. Sadly, it is this type of simple cases that brings insult to the intellectuality and mental capacities of the African race. We have morons representing us, and showing us badly to the world.

Abba Kyari could have been admitted a few meters away from his office if N13 billion-naira worth of equipment were available at the Aso Clinic. Aso Clinic could have been a world class hospital or clinic. The resources were there and still there!

What we know, is that the budget was on paper. What we don’t know is if 10 times that amount was transferred digitally as the real cost. Nigeria is a geographical region, so the people in power remain above the law. They do what they like, they get away with it. They are mostly criminals.

Kyari died at 82. When does a man deserve to enjoy the fruits of his work, his labour and his loots? I remember in the early days of the APC-Buhari mandate and on a few occasions after that, l argued that even a man like Buhari (as at 2015) should be home in Daura tending his cattle and laughing with his grandchildren. That is still my view today if that man Buhari still exists.

Whether you like it or not, whether you speak good or evil of the dead or not, a man like Abba Kyari was one of the problems with Nigeria. His demise in the hand of this democratic virus does not bring us any hope or solution. We are living in a geographical region where evil replaces evil and good never rises. Abba is just one man, not better in any way than the 21 or more people that the military have executed since the start of the unplanned lockdown in Nigeria.

It’s just another one bite the dust. Abba Kyari’s life is not more important than Edith’s mother who died because no hospital outside of Onitsha would admit her to treat her heart problem. Kyari’s life is not worth more than all the hundreds of children who will die today in Nigeria because of malaria.

Do Nigerian politicians learn? Do they see the death of the most powerful among them as a reason to return their loots and build the geographical region called Nigeria? Will they sell their houses in London and bring the proceeds back to Nigeria?

Will they sell their houses in Dubai and bring all the monies back home knowing that Kyari did not take any of those with him? Will the stupid ones scheming for 2023 relax and work together to build factories, hospital, modern schools, good roads and better infrastructure knowing that life itself is a passage and death is certain?

I could ask one thousand questions bothering on the meaning and essence of our transient lives.

If we don’t learn from this and start to ask for better governance and take our rights by force, then kyari’s death is useless to us. If the politicians don’t learn from this and return all loots, cut their borgeous salaries, spread wealth and not poverty, then Kyari’s death is useless to them.

So, if the people rejoice again at the death of the next prominent politician, please let them rejoice. If stealing, looting and spreading poverty make the politicians happy, then their deaths should make the people rejoice. What goes around, comes around. Death is no exception. Happiness, no matter the sources, cannot be an exception.

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.
