Horrible Images From Kaduna? Genocide?

By Adeola Aderounmu

There are terrible images from Nigeria, allegedly from Southern Nigeria. I cannot share the videos or images that l have on my phone.

There is a need to investigate the horrible pictures to ascertain their origins and implications.

What l know is that El Rufai has a reputation for paying monies to terrorists. You can do a simple google search to find the information about how he had paid Boko Haram and the so called bandits and foreign murderers in Northern Nigeria over the years.

How can you have peace in a state where the governor has a reputation for paying murderers and terrorists?

I just told someone that Nigeria is a disorganised jungle. That is what it is.

If you think Nigeria is a normal or usual country, you are out of your mind!

It´s sad though: to think that the nations within Nigeria have refused to liberate themselves through revolutions or other means, yet the people are killed or slaughetered like rams and chickens.

It´s a mystery.

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.

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.

A Country Called Nigeria (Part 2)

ON BUHARI: He is looking like a zombie, giving support to the Fulanis in terms of communication (radio station) and terror cells ( RUGA settlements). Buhari should be dragged to the war crime tribunal without delay. He is the most dangerous man in Africa today and he rules over 190 m people who seem to be on sedatives.

————————–

Don’t worry about our future. When we start to swear in our leaders in Yorubaland by Sango-the god of thunder, l dare anyone of them to be corrupt or unruly.

 

A Country Called Nigeria. (Part 2)

Health

Do you know just how bad the state of health provision is in Nigeria? Look at it this way, the so-called president of Nigeria, Mr. Buhari, is an outpatient in a number of hospital in Europe. That is a summary of the state of health provision in Nigeria. The one who is supposed to provide good health to Nigerians in Nigeria seeks medical treatment abroad for himself and his family.

You should be alarmed as much as l am that Nigerians have been caged. For, the moment that happened, Nigerians, who are more than 190 m should have ended such a government in less than 24 hours. Buhari’s government should have been terminated by the people the moment he flew out for treatment. But years after, he is sitting his ass tight and even got re-elected by a fraudulent, non-transparent electoral process. Buhari himself is a fraud.

My point is: how can health services be provided to a people whose ruler does not receive health service in the land? It is not going to happen. Nigeria is the country where you find polio and it is where maternal deaths (or pregnancy-related mortality) remain a world record high.

Malaria still kills children, pregnant women and the old as well as the young in Nigeria. Health issues and any form of accidents are primarily death sentences in Nigeria. Quality health services are rare and expensive. So, a return to good health after an illness or an accident is a miracle in Nigeria and calls for testimonies in churches and mosques.

This is the state of health in Nigeria, a country that provides the rest of the world with the best doctors and nurses there are in the international world.

School and Education

The quality of education in Nigeria, just like the health sector, is also mostly based on money. The elites and the rich pay huge fees to get their children some quality education. There is no equality in the quality of education provided in Nigeria. This means that human beings are not equal in Nigeria and social justice does not exist.

In summary, the public educational system in Nigeria is almost dead. This is a sign of systemic failure of governance. In a recent video that went viral on the internet, we saw students in Port Harcourt who went to school with hand grenades and other firearms. It was an open cult war. Cultism has ripped through the various institutions in Nigeria, public and private.

It appears that schools have become a place to breed hooligans and cultists. Some schools can cause permanent eye disorder when you look at them. They are dilapidated, and rainy days mean no school or school’s out. Public education in Nigeria is a disgrace to humanity. In several blog posts, l have addressed this issue comprehensively and even proffered solutions.

It will take a lot of investments in the educational sector to save the day for Nigeria. Sadly, politics in Nigeria promote laziness, corruption, illiteracy and reward for criminals. If the investments in education must yield results, the above vices must be eliminated and the immunity of criminals in public offices must disappear as early as today. A lot of these things work together to destroy the importance of good education and dignity of labour.

Science, Medicine, Research and Technology

Each of the above can be addressed independently. In my opening comments, l wrote that the problems with Nigeria can be written with a million words. That could happen if we try to dissect the problems with in full details.

These points are closely linked with education and health already highlighted above. If the educational sector gets the required attention and if we really care about the future of the unborn generations, then this is the time to make the leaps in science, medicine, research and technology. We are too far behind as a country and in the various geo-political regions that were destroyed in 1966.

In order for Nigeria to make progress in these areas, urgent measures must be taken to reverse the brain drain that continued to plague the country since the 1980s. We are chasing out our best brains and we are not tapping the best brains that are behind in Nigeria.

Again, all of these things are connected to our politicians who are corrupt, they are stealing all the yearly allocations for these causes, and we the people are looking. Those who believe in Nigeria as a country must save it. Those who have lost faith must also be allowed to determine their future. Who knows what will happen?

Security

Don’t even go there. APC came into power in 2015 against the backdrop of a campaign to end Boko Haram. It was all fallacy. It appears that APC is the sponsor of Boko Haram as the Buhari regime looked back and allowed the terrorists to gain more grounds, killed more people using both soft and hard targets.

The more you investigate Boko Haram, the less you understand of it. Such an insurgency, in my opinion, thrives because the government is not willing to end it brutally. I think it is possible to wipe away Boko Haram from the face of the earth. I just don’t know how many drones it would take, but it is doable.

Recall that Buhari was famously quoted that an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the North when Jonathan was make efforts to curb the terrorist group, notorious for kidnapping and raping women and children. So, how do we think that an army led by Buhari’s men would end the insurgency of Boko Haram? Have we thought well about this?

At the end of 2015 Buhari lied to the whole world when he said that Boko Haram had been technically defeated. What a bloody lie? And what a bold lie for that matter! For that alone, Buhari should have been arrested and tried. But Nigerians allowed the government to run a system where the rulers are untouchable no matter the extent of their crimes. To lie to Nigerians and the world is a criminal act.

The security problems in Nigeria is now very close to what brought about the civil war in 1967. Terrorists have been given all kinds of fanciful names like bandits, herdsmen and hooligans. In terms of security, this is the worst government in the history of Nigeria. The security of lives and property does not exist!

Genocide seems to be playing out in Nigeria. The Fulanis are on a rampage, killing across Nigeria and taking over other people’s ancestral homes. You know what Buhari is doing? He is looking like a zombie, giving support to the Fulanis in terms of communication (radio station) and terror cells (settlements). Buhari should be dragged to the war crime tribunal without delay. He is the most dangerous man in Africa today and he rules over 190 m people who seem to be on sedatives.

 

The Politics. The Future

Nigerian politics is a huge joke. Criminals of all sorts are roaming government houses in the name of immunity. 99.9% of Nigerian politicians are looters and individuals whose sole interest is self-enrichment. To make Nigerian politics a serious matter, the immunity clause must go.

This means that as soon as a person is suspected of illegalities or criminality, the person can step aside and be prosecuted. Even ex-convicts, suspected criminals and people with ill-gotten wealth should not be allowed to contest for public offices. The Nigerian political sphere is filled with different sorts of criminal minds and people suffering from different grades of mental diseases.

Until Nigeria rids its political space of evil minds and dubious characters, the country will continue to parade criminals in all government houses and the country will NEVER, NEVER become a prosperous country for the ordinary citizens.

Another issue that need to be addressed is the similarity of the APC and PDP political parties and the ease of crossing from one political party to another. Ideology is zero and this may not be unconnected to the immunity of the criminals we call politicians.

But it appears that the future of Nigeria is now more uncertain than at any point in time/history.

There are legitimate agitations to split the country. The prime arguments against that is that the people in these regions are the same people running the country down today. What will be different if the country split?

Actually, a lot will change. Prior to the two useless coups of 1966, Western Nigerian for example was ahead of various European and Asian countries in terms of development. When Nigeria was lumped together as one country as an aftermath of a senseless military coup and the civil war that followed, development stagnated in western Nigeria and the Yorubas have not moved an inch forward since 1966.  Imagine the impact of stunted growth since 1966, it is huge.

Agitation for the Oduduwa republic is rife again as much as the IPOB in eastern Nigeria and the Niger Delta Kingdom. We live in a time where self-determination is becoming more common and rampant. A people as large as the Yorubas numbering over 50 million deserve their country and l am in full support of the Oduduwa Kingdom as much as l am in support of the Igbos seeking self-determination without infringing on the rights of the people of the Niger Deltans to determine the control of their lands and resources.

From today henceforth, no matter how much l write about the glory of Nigeria and how well l want Nigeria to be great, my heart is now with the movement that will emancipate my people, my culture and my heritage from the shackles of the Nigerian stupidity.

One way or the other, the Yorubas must negotiate their freedom from the expired British colony because that is the only way for the glory of the children of Oduduwa to become manifest and great.

Don’t worry about our future. When we start to swear in our leaders in Yorubaland by Sango-the god of thunder, l dare anyone of them to be corrupt or unruly.

My Random Reflections @ 47. Niger-Area: An Expired British Colony.

As you read my reflections, let me tell you what will happen before you get to the last sentence. A group of terrorists called herdsmen will kidnap a man/woman probably in western Nigeria and demand for a huge ransom. Another group of terrorists, also called herdsmen will move their cattle into another man’s land probably in Eastern Nigeria or in Edo state and destroy the farmland. They will never be apprehended, and they will never be prosecuted.

 

My Random Reflections @ 47. Niger-Area: An Expired British Colony.

By Adeola Aderounmu

 

img_20190303_133811_210127886083964445314.jpg

This should be my 12th annual random reflections. I wrote the first edition of this series when l turned 36. I celebrate my earth day on July the 12th. Let’s see how long Olodumare carries me for.

There is so much to write about this year as in the previous years. This sounds a bit contradictory considering that l published an article on July 13, 2007 titled: Nigeria, what more to write? The article is online at the Nigerian Village Square (NVS).

Despite the fact that there is so much to write about, it would also be impossible to highlight everything in my random reflections. Nigeria, the country is overstretched and Nigerians, the people-at least 100m of them-are broken physically and psychologically.

The country Nigeria as it were today, or as defined by the colonial thugs who merged non-similar, non-familiar entities until it formed the Niger-area colony, has outlived its usefulness to the citizens/indigenes. It is clear that Nigeria is no longer functioning as a country and all the fears genuine writers and real social commentators expressed especially in the last 2-3 decades have matured and overtaken us. Niger-area is likely living on borrowed times.

As writers, we yelled! We screamed! We warned! We suggested, we gave advice. We proffered solutions, we wrote volumes upon volumes of articles. We gave our time, our energy, our resourceful thinking and many gave their lives. We are living and carrying on with heavy hearts after the demise of our beloved brother and crusader Pius Adesanmi. In him, we lost one of Africa’s most illustrious sons. In his honor and for the sake of the unborn generations we must carry on and be ready to give our lives too.

All we did in the last 2 decades fell on wrong ears. As you read my reflections, let me tell you some of the things that will happen before you get to the last sentence. A group of terrorists called herdsmen will kidnap a man/woman probably in western Nigeria and demand for a huge ransom. Another group of terrorists, also called herdsmen will move their cattle into another man’s land probably in Eastern Nigeria or in Edo state and destroy the farmland. They will never be apprehended, and they will never be prosecuted.

Many travelers will cancel their road trips from Kaduna to Abuja and from Benin to Lagos because of terrorists called bandits. Some terrorists called bandits will kill a few dozen men, women and children, probably in southern parts of Kaduna State. The terror attack will not make the mainstream news and the terrorists will chase away the natives forever.

Boko Haram may decide to expand their 15% ownership of Borno to 30% and overrun another Nigerian army barracks as they always do.

Also, before you finish reading my random reflections, a few other despicable things would occur elsewhere on the expired British colony called Niger-area. For example, a handful of lazy young men in Western Nigeria would have killed a couple of girls for rituals and some would have stolen some underwear for the same purpose. A number of lazy, disoriented people would be at Lagos lsland or seek out a fake mad man asking for where/how to buy human body parts.

Some psycho politicians and politicians to be will be at a shrine, not to worship their ancestors as they should, but to solicit for supernatural powers that would blindfold the people and bring them ill-gotten wealth. Even some pastors to be are looking for human sacrifices to bury at the foundation of their churches.

I can tell you a lot more things that would happen in advance in Niger-area. The kind of things you go to night vigils in churches and mosques to listen to. Road accidents, preventable diseases and inexplicable illnesses will claim thousands of lives in the next 24 hours and more than 90% of them will not make the news.

You can’t stop these predictions because Lagos roads for example, are the worst roads in the world and millions of people in Nigeria have drivers’ licenses without learning how to drive. Some cannot read and some have bad sights. Many have cars/vehicles without brakes. The public hospitals are ill-equipped and not every sick person can afford treatment.  So these things will happen, as usual in a failed system, the Niger-area.

Still, I can predict that fuel tankers will explode, there will be boat mishaps and there will be flood in Lagos disrupting residential and business areas. The flood in Jos is not receiving any attention and efforts will never be made to prevent a repeat.

I can tell you that it is not only the herdsmen that are problems in Edo. That state is ravaged by cultists and the young men are fast disappearing so much that even those s/elected into the political positions in the state are still in hiding, afraid to resume offices. The states in Nigeria are not viable, many of them were DOA.

Should l continue to tell you the one million reasons why Niger-area is an expired colony?

We are totally lost as a group of diverse people. Our focuses are on the wrong things and distraction is our common middle name. We are all about “self/me” because we lost the plot and some of us lost our minds. Our brains, and subsequently our reasonings were sort of destructively infected by the way the government was/is managed. The crudest survival of the fittest was re-introduced to us after the exit of the colonial thugs in 1960.

We entered a self-destruct mode, something l had earlier described as a form of human necrosis in an article many years ago.

Whilst all these mayhem and elements of civil war are going on, the criminal politicians continue to sign cheques and award one another salaries that are the highest in the world. You won’t find criminals worse than these gangs in Nigeria on planet earth.

One of them will be arguing with the others on why he has the right to beat women in a sex toy shop whereas he and the others like him should be tied in chains in a psychiatric ward for serious evaluations and eventual medication for the rest of their lives. What happened to “aro” and “yaba left”?

The ruler of the pack whom they call Buhari has lost touch with reality and suffers permanent dementia. The rest of us will suffer dementia also to varying degrees as we age or near death, so it is not a personal illness of Mujahedeen Buhari.

To him, West Germany still exists and Ambode was a former governor of Edo state. In fact, he handed over the presidential ticket to another man at a recent rally. All the traits that should earn Buhari a disqualification elevated him as typical of Niger-area, an expired British colony. Buhari belongs to the archive but now he may face the war crime tribunal for all the crimes and killings under his watch. He should.

Boko Haram may decide to expand their 15% ownership of Borno to 30% and overrun another army barracks as they always do. 

Still, Nigerians are following a man whose only consciousness is about the lives of cows and the expansion of the Fulanis from neighboring West African countries to the shores of Lagos lagoon, a sort of jihad.

All our warnings about the useless unitary system that continue to produce extremely useless rulers from APC and PDP are still falling on deaf ears. Some of us continue to argue that we must depart from this useless unitary system of government or the road to perdition is guaranteed for the next generation too.

One of the major reasons Western Nigeria fell behind countries like the France and the UK in the race for development was as a result of the eradication of the Western Region and the senseless introduction of the unitary government following the murderous coup of January 1966 and counter murderous coup of July 1966. The fallouts and the other reasons can be debated.

Why are we shy of the facts that led to the civil war and the gradual de-civilization of the prosperous regions within Niger-area?

For, no political system in the world will be rid of corruption and greedy politicians. It is the reason for the law and the judicial systems as checks everywhere in the world. When Nigerian politicians became corrupt and greedy under the regional system in the 60s, performances still outweighed their greediness because no region wanted to be behind in the development race.

Indeed, it was the appropriate democratic institutions regulating the law, the police, the judiciary and indeed the people that needed to act democratically. Nigeria was destroyed forever by the lucky bastards in khaki!

Even since 1999, Obasanjo and Buhari have come to represent these tropical gangsters, the juntas. When we compare one evil with the other rather than sacrifice our lives if necessary to rid ourselves of all evils, we enthrone kleptocracy, nepotism, ethnicity and even tribalism above common sense, above the good of all. Systemic necrosis becomes inevitable. Our predicament seems incurable under a useless form of system called unitary system.

It has led to more than 40 years of misrule, the introduction and propagation of hope through foreign religions at the expense of equality and social justice. The useless unitary system and the senseless federal character  led to diversion from hardwork /dignity of labor towards ostentatious lifestyle, grave nepotism and cancerous tribalism. The dirty celebration of ill-gotten wealth also crippled Nigeria further.

Today, the sum of all evil culminated in the existence of two criminal organizations called APC and PDP with the same agenda/goal. The total eradication of these two monsters will be a valid first step towards hope for a better federation. Nigeria needs a restart button, some sort of reboot to reset and begin again. Until freedom comes and until true independence is achieved, the agitations from the various regions would remain permanent.

Sadly, Nigerians will likely remain the poorest people on earth as long as this arrangement stays. Pray all you want: Niger delta will remain polluted, almajiris are forever, roads will remain death traps, public schools/universities will never rise again, primary/public health care will remain almost non-existence and the few successful learned people/experts/professionals (including sportspeople) will continue to seek other countries, making the world a better place and Nigeria (the producer of the brains) a shit-hole.

Truth is bitter but constant.

There is nothing happening in Nigeria today that we have not highlighted in the last 2 decades. Personally, l have put pen to paper about these issues since 2002. Dig the archives of the Nigerian Guardian and read my article in 2002 titled: Why Politicians Steal.

The more you think things we change, the more they stay the same or get worse. We unite and rally round the wrong things. We bring our best brains into a stupid political system and they join the useless circus called unitary government. Nigeria’s (useless) unitary system is government of the elites, by the elites and for the elites.

The day the rest of us are ready for freedom is the day we shall rally round the things that matter to us. We will unify on the way forward for all the different ethnicities trapped in this expired British product called Niger-area (Nigeria).

Those who will suffer most under this elitist system are our children and our children’s children. If they are in Nigeria, when the time comes, they would fight for their freedom. If they already became slaves again, even on home soil, and therefore hopeless, they will curse our graves and make sure they are unmarked.
