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!

My Random Reflections @ 48

My Random Reflections @ 48

Here we go again.

Adeola Aderounmu @ 48, 2020

This series started in 2008 and this is the 13th edition. You can read my previous reflections using the page My Random Reflections at the top on this blog.

In 2008 when l wrote the first in the series. I was 36. l had no idea it was going to be an annual entry on my birthday, July 12. But it is now. A tradition.

Last year my post was about a number of predictions of what was going to happen before and after you finish reading the piece. If you are keen on Nigeria, you may browse the entry and see how easy it is to predict the fate of Nigeria and Nigerians.

There are still many things to reflect upon about Nigeria. They are mostly repetitions of what l have written about in the last 20 years. On September 9, 2002, l wrote a piece in the Nigerian Guardian Newspaper titled Why Politicians Steal. The reason Nigerian politicians stole in 2002 is still the same reason they steal in 2020.

Nigeria is running a very useless system of government. The politicians cannot be arrested by the police. They are above the law and they are immune to arrest and prosecution. Currently, two organised criminal organisations are running Nigeria. They are popularly called APC and PDP. But they are the same group of gangsters who moved in and out of the group at will depending on favours and ambitions.

By not having the authority to arrest corrupt politicians and bad people in the country, the Nigerian Police became one of the most useless institutions in the world. By not being independent and lacking the possibility of keeping the country under check & balance, the Nigerian judiciary is not far from the Nigerian police as one of the most useless arms of government in the world.

By being so resilient and incapable of initiating social changes that would change the course of their history, Nigerians are the most unserious and suffering-abiding citizens the world had seen. Nigeria is made of recipes for disasters.

I am sorry to say you may be an idiot if you claim to either belong to APC or PDP. That means that you don´t see how the politicians themselves are acting out the scripts. There are only a few of them who have not crossed carpets from one to the other. There is no matured Nigerian politician alive that has not belonged to at least 2 political parties in his/her lifetime. So if a citizen says, I am APC or PDP, that citizen is most likely a moron.

In essence, my point is that there are almost no political parties in Nigeria. The 2 major ones are criminal organisations. If you belong to a criminal organisation while trying to play your part in the destruction of what is left of Nigeria, you are insane and part of the problems that need to be eliminated for freedom to come.

It is not only the politicians that are ruining or destroying Nigeria. Nigeria is at a point where majority of the population are destroying the system or what is left of it so that they could survive. With massive unemployment, spread of insecurity and rise of terrorism, the destruction of Nigeria will climax someday. No one knows when or what the consequences will lead to. Nigeria is not sustainable.

You can tell that l am tired of the question: what is the solution to Nigeria´s problems? It is now clear that in order to find the answer to this question, one has to admit that there is no country called Nigeria in the first place. Nigeria is a fraudulent arrangement put together for the pleasure of the queen of England. Niger-Area metamorphosed to Nigeria as a British business empire in 1914.

The opportunity cost was the sovereignty of the nations that were clustered in the unholy marriage. For a while it worked. It did, especially when the fraudsters/colonial thugs from England who put it together perfected the process of indirect rule. What happened since october 1st 1960 unveiled the demons in the skin of the Africans occupying the geopolitical zone called Nigeria.

The gap between Europé and Nigeria for example is unwarranted considering the intellectual pool that Nigeria supplies to Europé and America annually. But how can the rest of the world be like paradise and Nigeria a total enclave of incivility? Where do you begin to do the analyses? Before you even begin to defend the insanity in Nigeria, take a trip to the oil producing area and come back with the EIA of the oil spillage. Oh, you don´t know what EIA is. Start from there.

I have written so much in the last 2 decades that l really don´t know how to summarise the points l am trying to make. But l will try. What could have become of Nigeria if for example politicians are not criminals or criminals are not politicians?

What would have become of Nigeria if there was love and no civil war from 1967 – 1970? What would have become of Nigeria if we abandoned the foreign incursions of Islam and Christianity like the Indians and the Chinese did?

What would have happened to Nigeria if the institutions of governance did their jobs and took care of criminals who found their ways to politics?

What would have become of Nigeria if education, health, medicine, sport and all basic infrastructure were maintained, sustained and kept running for the good of all? What would have become of Nigeria if no politician or military gangster stole N1 from the treasury?

The answers are clear. Nigeria would have become a paradise, a world power and the best place to live in the world. It would have been beautiful. We would have constant electricity, high standard of living, the best education in the world and our doctors would be the savers at home and globally.

Sadly, Nigeria is today one hell of a shamble. Nigeria is in the hands of idiots and complete nonentities called APC and PDP politicians. Nigerian intellectuals as l wrote in a previous article are ruled by mumus like Buhari. We had one drunkard before called Jonathan. There is one idiot called Babangida. One crazy fool called Abacha stole so much it appeared he kept sending us money from the grave. There is Obasanjo who kept writing letters but who also failed to return Nigeria to true federalism. Together with the ministers that served with them and the crook governors all over the place, they are sending Nigerians to their graves in thousands, daily-COVID or No Covid.

And all those still ganging up to keep Nigeria´s status quo, for example, Tinubu and Atiku, are all parts of the APC, PDP criminal establishments. Head or tail, Nigeria and Nigerians are doomed under the prevailing circumstances.

I just need to add that it does not matter where you live in Nigeria and how well you are doing or not, Nigeria on a whole is a useless country, representted by morons in government. For as long as more than 100m people are living from hand to mouth, unsure of the next meal and under constant lack of electricity, l am sorry, you are all living in poverty and in a giant man-made hell. Seun Kuti put it right: Nigeria is an open concentration camp.

Why Politicians Steal, Guardian Newspaper Sept 9, 2002

Nigeria could have worked. But it didn´t. It must be dismantled and that is not the antidote to the poverty and hopelessness in the region. But it is the first radical step that will usher competitions in the regions as they start a century long journey to catch up with the least fortunate countries in Europé.

How hard can it be to dismantle an entity that is now working? How hard is it for a people with common interests, culture, language and future to organise and make a decision to end poverty, to build a life that their children and children´s children would be willing to embrace. How hard is the pursuit of happiness in the various regions/nations within the fraud called Nigeria?

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…

COVID 19. Before We Forget Again: The Faces of Liars!

….the Commissioner for Health in Lagos State, Prof. Akin Abayomi, had said on Tuesday (2nd of April 2020) that he did not know Kyari’s location thereby sparking reports that the President’s aide was not in any isolation centre.

Before We Forget: The Faces Of Liars!

By Adeola Aderounmu

I just want to point out a major news that the rest of you will push under the carpets. Not my style for people in public service. Not at all. We are all not suffering from collective amnesia. Just not yet!

abayomi

On 2nd of April, the Lagos State commissioner for health denied knowledge of Abba Kyari’s location.

This date coincided with several twitter accounts reporting that a major player in Buhari’s cabinet had died of covid-19. Several twitter accounts went black and blank, but no comment from Aso rock.

According to a report in the punch newspaper filed by Eniola Akinkuotu:

….the Commissioner for Health in Lagos State, Prof. Akin Abayomi, had said on Tuesday that he did not know Kyari’s location thereby sparking reports that the President’s aide was not in any isolation centre.

Similarly, in the same report the the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, refused to disclose the location of the President’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, who has been infected by COVID-19.

minister of health

Fast forward 2 weeks:

After all the personal assistants working at Aso rock released their statements on twitter, to formally announce the passing of Abba Kyari, the Lagos state government then confirmed that Muhammad Buhari’s former chief  of staff Abba Kyari died at First Cardiology Consultants in Ikoyi.

Suddenly, Abayomi started to tell us that Abba Kyari was/died in Lagos.

Why am l not letting go of this issue just yet? There are so many reasons, but l will concentrate on one or two. First about Lagos.

How can you tell me that you trust Sanwoolu or Abayomi on everything they have regurgitated on covid-19 and the situation in Lagos state when they failed the most important test of trust?

As far as l am concerned, Sanwoolu and Abayomi have failed the test of trust, and personally l declare them enemies of the people.

How many more things have they lied about?

How many more things have they falsified?

What is the gain of lying about Kyari? The whole world knew Boris was at Thomas in London. Kini big deal?

What actually is the truth of the matter?

What roles did this APC government of special advisers played in manipulating the truth?

Sanwoolu can choose not to address this matter. The same way l can choose to look at him and Abayomi and laugh at them as bloody liars!

sanwoolu

The fact that the federal minister was involved in this cover-up means that the entire covid-19 infection and operations in Nigeria are totally compromised. How can liars steer Nigeria at a crucial time like this?

Let me tell you Naijans, you are on a long thing. l just love this Swedish phrase and it’s the only prayer l have left for Bongo: May the wind be your way!

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.
