The Fundamentals Of June 12 1993

The fundamentals of June 12 1993 revealed that every region in Nigeria should be allowed to control her own politics and resources just the way it was before the useless coups of the 60s. Regional government must now be allowed to stay and mature.

The Fundamentals of June 12 1993

June 12 1993 will remain iconic and outstanding in the annals of Nigeria. It is very instructive also to relate recent developments in Nigeria to the significance of June 12 1993.

My blog (Thy Glory O’ Nigeria) is awashed with stories of the historic June 12 1993 election in Nigeria. One statement that l continue to emphasize is that the election was not about the contest between MKO Abiola of the Social Democractic Party(SDP) and Alhaji BashirTofa of the National Republican Convention (NRC).

These two presidential aspirants were only parts and parcel of a larger significance that the election and the results bore on Nigeria and the history of Nigeria.

To be clear, people have argued about MKO Abiola’s character and antecedents prior to 1993. Let us agree now that election is a process. It is an integral aspect of a democratic dispensation. Election is not a means by which anyone should supress voters’  or human rights. Election should not be a means to disenfranchising the people.

In 1993, the military gangsters headed by one notorious Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida commited the most obvious treasonable felony in Nigeria’s history when they annulled and eventually cancelled the results of the presidential election which held on June 12. It was generally known that MKO Abiola was poised to win.

The political transition that culminated in the botched election had been long and tiring. Nigerians had been patient and long suffering. But it all came to a dead-end when the tropical gangster Ibrahim Babangida willingly acted the script of the cabal and the North in ensuring that power did not transfer by vote to the winner from the South-West, MKO Abiola, despite the obvious facts that the votes had been accumulated across tribal and religious boundaries.

What he, Babangida-one of Nigeria’s most corrupt and shameless tyrant ever-failed to realise was that democracy is about the power of votes and the will of the people. He ignored the principles of human rights and the principles of democracy. He played out the scripts that seemed to have been written in Northern Nigeria.

He was disgraced out of power when he said that he stepped aside but he never faced charges for all the treasons he committed over the years planning coups and deleting election results. He was never prosecuted and lives today in a fortress in Minna. Ibrahim Babangida is one of the shameful symbols of the modern black race, a man who has no respect for life and values.

The discussion on why Nigeria’s corrupt elites and politicians have never faced corruption charges or even imprisonment is another inexplicable aspect of the Nigerian political terrain. That omission will continue to dent the intellectuallity of the black race.

Nigeria is an example of a country notorious for allowing criminals to roam free in the land, staging multiple comebacks to political scene and continuously looting the treausre till they drop dead or pass the shame to their children, accomplices and family members.

The obvious winner of the June 12 1993 election, MKO Abiola was eventually murdered in prison on July 7 1998 as he struggled to achieve the mandate given to him by millions of Nigerian voters. His death and how it happened remained points of discussions as different versions were thrown to the people depending on who was talking about it.

In 1999, Nigeria was eventually returned to civilian rule without the pressure of the June 12 1993 elections dwindling. One of the tropical gangsters in Nigeria, General Abdulsalami, who must definitely have a good knowledge of how Abiola was murdered under his watch eventually handed over to Olusegun Obasanjo, one of their own.

The arrangement perfected by/under Abdulsalami was a military one but it was masked by the hastened election that brought General Obasanjo to power. It was a move that was necessary to appease the South West after the murder of MKO Abiola. The North found a good ally in Obasanjo as he was now a civilian, eternally pro-North and anti-June 12.

Obasanjo was also a former military head of state and a major player in the electoral atrocities and malpractises of the late 1970’s. He handed over power to Shehu Shagari of the NPN. So for the umpteenth time, the Nigerian elites, the gangsters in khaki and the political pretenders refused to solve the political imbroglio that hung over Nigeria since the end of the civil war in 1970.

The fundamental lessons of June 12 are clear. Those who capture Nigeria at the center at any given point in time control everything. They have unlimited power and unlimited immunity. That is not true democracy.

It was the fear of losing that control that shook the North of Nigeria. It was that fear that made them murdered MKO Abiola. Those who sent Abiola to prison are the ones that killed him no matter how the murder was carried out. It was the North even if they had accomplices from other part of the country or from America. The story of Judas is common sense, not spiritual.

The fear of losing power under an authoritarian, unitary arrangement continue to grip the North. The North, over the years became too dependent on economic revenues from Lagos and the oil producing states. In the absence of clear cut agreement on how to sustain itself with the help of these undeserved wages should the structure change suddenly, the North continues to fear losing the center.

The North is always afraid and it continues to spread fear and threats among the other parts of the country as tactics for holding to power. In recent history, 3 key occurences have brought out the fear for all to see very clearly.

One is the annullment of the June 12 elections. If Bashir Tofa had won, the results would have stayed.

Two is the death of Musa Yar Adua and the desperation to prevent the emergence of Goodluck Jonathan as his replacement. The disastrous reign of Goodluck Jonathan did not help matters and the manner of his defeat through both [INEC styled] ballots and propaganda remain viable discussions for everyone keen on the progress of Nigeria.

The third is currently playing out. The absence of Mohammed Buhari and all the desperate measures now in place to keep the power in the North no matter the cost.

The crazy and defective ideology of born to rule is however the most significante revelation of the constant fear that grips the North. Unless one is born into a royal family, one is never born to rule. We have seen even how royal bloods continue to fade away globally. Born to rule is false hope.

In June 1993, following the annullment of the best election ever in the history of Nigeria, the message was clear: Votes will never count as long as the unitary system invented by the military persists. Nigerians were told pointblank that those who control the center will always decide the eventual rulers or Nigeria.

June 12 1993 showed us that Nigeria needed to restructure so that such errors and treasonable acts should never be made to reoccur. But the people were cowed and caged. Nigeria is still not restructured. Emergence at the head of the tyrannic unitary system can be well doctored by the electoral commission and the cabal. Past and recent elections under a unitary system justify these anomalies.

It cannot be rocket science. True, every system of governance has its own defects. Regional government had its imperfections and it was never even allowed to mature. Unitary system of government is like tyranny and on planet earth is probably the worst system of government. No matter the faults or defects that led to the coups of the 1960s, that system of government-the regional government- was far better and more productive for Nigeria.

Since the end of the civil war, Nigeria’s problems have become more profound and complicated. All the arms of government are practically useless as criminals hold sway everywhere in government. No matter the scandal or level of corruption today, the unitary system does nothing to address the situation. The system bears almost no difference under the military or civilians as most of the people in power have turned criminals.

Nigerians are living like in a rat race with their destinies out of their hands and control. Attempts to address the anomalies have always been myopic and selfish because rather than take an holistic approach to solve a generic problem nationally, the absence of leadership meant that a few individuals have taken advantage of the situations. They played the ethnic and tribal game so good that Nigeria is going in tatters.

It will be a matter of time to see where we are heading but it could turn out really worse than what we have seen till date. A situation that could have been managed by sensible leadership and patriotism led us to the existence of Biafra having her own currency and declaring her own holidays.

This has been followed by the Kaduna Declaration in which the North bore her minds and feelings about the East. No amount of retraction can obscure the mind of the North as clearly stated in the declaration, sponsored or not.

We got here because rather than applying common sense, rather than using merit, we sought to one useless federal character under a unitary system that promote foolishness, ineptitude, dumbness and corruption.

Nothing is too late in life. The choices are still before us. We knew before June 12 1993 that we were in an unholy alliance since the military struck in 1966. Some said that Nigeria was stitched together for the pleasure of the Queen of England.

Then treachery, suspicious minds and lack of patriotism took sway a long time ago. A long time ago, Nigeria seized to be a federation. She became a treasure to be captured and it remained so when APC outsmart PDP 2 years ago.

The political class realigned and continued the siege and rape of the land. Criminals everywhere, at the presidency, senate and all over.

Unless the system that encourages this type of madness is cut away soon, the violence trailing Boko Haram, Biafra(IPOB), MEND and the coming effects of both the Kaduna and Niger Delta declarations may lead to undesirable outcomes.

The fundamentals of June 12 1993 revealed that every region in Nigeria should be allowed to control her own politics and resources.

The time misspent in the past can be redeemed if common sense is allowed to prevail now. A stitch in time saves nine.

Mr. Ambode, The governor Of Lagos Island And The god Of Lagos

By Adeola Aderounmu

The hottest news from Nigeria this week is the sacking of a church worker by the governor of Lagos state. In a manner akin only to wickedness and evil machinations, Mr. Ambode, whom l have long regarded as the governor of Alausa and Lagos Island, threw out Venerable Femi Taiwo with a 24 hour notice.”

Ambode, the god of Lagos?

Ambode, the god of Lagos?

Venerable Femi Taiwon was the presiding chaplain of the Chapel of Christ the Light, Ikeja. His offence was that he was delivering  a sermon and he did not acknowledge the presence of the wife of Ambode.

So Mrs. Ambode went home, probably cried and reported to his husband, the emperor of Lagos, Mr. Ambode. These people are devilish clowns.

My position here is not the same as standing with the church or any religion whatsoever. I care less because the church and mosques remain instrumental to the destruction of Nigeria.

My position here is standing against fools and arrogant people in government. Mr. Ambode has forgotten that he was a criminal who was sacked from the government. But like all criminals before him, he found his way back to power courtesy of the Tinubu’s grip on Lagos. But he will fall. He will!

The end of festac

Rather than cleaning up Lagos, Mr. Ambode is busy playing god. 

Rather than put his wife and house in order so that his wife stops going around seeking recognition and acknowledgment, Mr. Ambode decided to terminate the appointment of the chaplain.

In my opinion, Mr. Ambode is not only foolish, he is also arrogant. Who does he think he is?  The god of Lagos? Those who are close to him should tell him that he is on his way to perdition.

Even if you want to relieve the chaplain of his position because he was employed by the state government, why not give him 7 days or even 1 month so he can put his life in order while he leaves the employment of the criminal government?

I am sure several Nigerians have thrashed this issue on the social media, so l won’t flog it.

Mr. Ambode, what goes round, comes round.

 

The Kings Are Mad (Part 3)

 

Humans are generously foolish.

When a king is old, when a king lives in the past, how can he be the hope for the future?

What is the significance of youth when a senile being steers the golden ship to the pirates?

When a king or a man has no memory of what he said or did yesterday, he will take everyone including his family and the opposition with him on the road to perdition.

The Kings Are Mad (Part 3)

By Adeola Aderounmu

There was economic and social hardship in the land. This situation was not new. For many years the people have grumbled. The status quo since the colonial thugs left remain the same: the rich are getting richer and the poor, poorer.

The foolish king from the south could not stop drowning himself in alcohol. He was incurable.

At his soberly moments, he always came to the realisation of the truth, still he could not indulge himself in it. When you have sold your soul, nothing else matters to you in public service than self-preservation.

After the town hall meeting, everyone was convinced one way or the other that change was the only way forward. The problem was that the people have become so disillusioned that they don’t know that the change can be structured and planned so that the generations unborn would be thankful when they show up on this stage called life.

The foolish king was so hated that a rebellion ensued. Not all rebellions are characterised by blood bath. Nocturnal meetings became rampant and there was confusion across the land. The voices of the discontent became louder.

The kingmakers and the county senate decided that they have had enough. So they plotted, thickly in favour of a change. It was not as if they meant well though. Their own very existence and in fact their survival too, are built on falsehood. They are the unrepentant masters of deceits.

This land remain cursed. It faltered a long time ago. It continues to bleed due to trachery and the wickedness of men and women. This is the land where crimes, hatred for fellow humans and corruption are directly proportional to religious sacrifices performed through prayers and fasting. What is the meaning of mental slavery again?

On the political fields, the unholy alliance that emerged was not new. It was the rearrangement and the realignment of the known criminals in public services. They met secretly but everything was public knowledge.

The king of Abuja, the foolish one of the southern pedigree who had surrounded himself with foreigners for his protection heard about the plots.

But there was not much he could do. No one is coming for him. A deposed king or a king about to be sent on exile need not go to war. This king was not a warrior. He can live and he won’t have to fight another day. He wouldn’t even spend the rest of his life in jail. He lives in a lawless land!

In Ebute-Meta the children were taught about real warriors. They ran so they could live to fight another day. They didn’t fight stupid wars because it’s useless to die for nothing if you live for something.

The people also said that power is like a sweet, strong wine. It is sweet and highly intoxicating. It brings you to life and to limelight.They also told stories of many men and women that lost the plots and died thinking that power was all that matters.

So when the elections came, all that the king from the south hoped for was a miracle. He was not worried about money. He, his wfe and his cronies have all stolen more than what will last them on earth even if they live forever.

All the kings in this land, past and present, are crazy. They have always stolen money and gold for their wives, children and family member and they continue to steal.

Humans are generously foolish.

They forget completely about their mortal existence. They even forget that they could sleep and never wake up on this side of the world again.

The wise men said that sleep is an endless journey until a poke of breath merge the soul with the flesh again. That is what the wise men called grace.

The foolish king was actually smart with one thing. He forgot many things in his life time but he didn’t forget that it would amount to foolishness to draw a knife when his adversary was already pointing a submachine gun at him.

One famous writer said that when your time for glory comes, everything including the universe will conspire in your favour and make it manifest.

What he didn’t add is that when you climb the tree beyond the branches, your whole life comes crashing down to earth especially if you misuderstood the significance of grace in your life.

But we all misunderstood a few things about life and in that sense we remain lesser than the gods and our ancestors. We have all fallen. But what defines us is how and where we stand when we rise again. The lessons we learnt modify us. Sadly, some never rise again.

In this land, the people never learnt and those who learn have become voiceless.

Both conventional wisdom and contemporary knowledge tell us for example that a people gets the leader or ruler they deserved.

The absence of good people and the conspiracy of the elites brought back to power a king of low mentality. He had always been one of them. He will always be one of the rulers who destroyed this land. No amount of lies can change historical facts.

It also amounts to foolishness to say one evil was less than the other.

The wicked rulers abandoned history in the school curriculum because they want to hide their madness from the future generation. It was a hard decision to bring back the king with low mentality. By himself, he failed a dozen times trying to force his mentality on the people.

What can the kingmakers do when the people are enslaved and the north held the land to ransome with several terrorist cells as weapons. What a truce? But we know that Bawa and his co-travellers have become one of the several monsters in the north. So, what a truce?

Sadly, there are no good people left in this land and the wise ones are allowed to languish away at various corners of the educational institutions.

When they are brought to politics, two possible  fate await them. One, they are turned to criminals. Two, they are converted to political zombies.

The madness of the kings (and their subjects) means that there are great limitations to the use of knowledge.

The people have been deceived for the umpteenth time. In this land where the people ought to fight for their freedom, they succumbed once again to the deceit of the stupid cabal and brought a soldier to power.

One of the greatest musicians to walk the face of the earth, a late legend from the western part of the land phophesied many years ago in his songs. The people didn’t listen to him because he was ahead of his time. The people never believed in all the signs, even the obvious ones.

He said that the people will be suffering and smiling for as long as they allow themselves to be subjected to the manipulations of the wicked.

He prophesied about this time we live in now. He said a dictator of low intelligence would bring suffering to the land. The first time was against the will of the people. The second time was a manipulation of the people’s mind.

The gods are up to something and the wise men are quiet (justifiably) because they can’t stop the rewards of the wicked. They cannot cloth their shame.

The people of this land have short memories. They and the conquerors of the land patch the surface to hide the rot at the middle and the decay at the bottom.

When a king is old, when a king lives in the past, how can he be the hope for the future? What is the significance of youth when a senile being steers the golden ship to the pirates?

When a man has no memory of what he said or did yesterday, he will take everyone including his family and the opposition with him on the road to perdition.

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Please Clear This Biological Weapon!

The challenge before President Buhari and Governor Ambode is to order the immediate demolition of the illegally built houses and structures that have been used to block the underground sewage channels in Festac Town. That is the only and final solution.

We are citizens of Nigeria and they owe us this responsibility-to clean our environment. The government should stop killing us with biological weapons!

Governor  Akinwunmi Ambode, Please Clear This Biological Weapon!

By Adeola Aderounmu (Sweden)

One of the most disgusting views in Lagos State is embedded in my local government area. On 4th Avenue, 402 Road in Festac Town is a deep river of sewage flowing like the River Nile.

The sewage accumulating and flowing on the streets is a source of death and therefore represents a biological warfare against the people of 402 Road in Festac Town. Is the Lagos state government or the federal government of Nigeria at war with the people?

one

There are a number of theories on why faeces that are flushed from the toilets in this area of Festac now flows directly to the streets on which the people live.

No one can doubt that the plans for Festac Town were destroyed by the Federal Housing Authority when lands reserved for recreations and natural conservation were sold to some useless Nigerian millionaires by some useless government workers on behalf of the federal government of Nigeria.

The consequences and results of the deviation from the original, functional plans of Festac are what we are facing today. There are rivers of sewage scattered around in the estate. In addition, the estate is now over-congested and bastardly disorganised.

Once the pride of Africa, Festac town is now an area filled with shame and filth.

two

The sad reality is that it is not only in Festac Town that the citizens of Nigeria sleep and wake up surrounded by sewage. But l’m staying with the Festac problem as that is my constituency.

 

The end of festac

[To watch the video, visit my Youtube channel-Adeola Aderounmu, or my facebook https://www.facebook.com/adeola ]

 

The most obvious danger ahead of the people of 402 Road is that an epidemic is imminent. That is if one is not already in progress because the people have been surrounded by this flowing sewage for several years.

I wish a student from a Department Medical Parasitology of the University of Lagos can understake a medical research project on 402 Road/4th Avenue area of Festac Town. The results will be useful in understanding the statuses of the health of the people in the area.

The probability that the inhabitants of this area are suffering from ill-health and infections like typhoid as a result of this crime committed by government, is high.

three

One cannot rule out deaths related to this polluted and heavily stinking environment. Children and the elderly would have been particularlty susceptible.

If the useless government workers who sold land to the useless Nigerian millionaires had not sold the land area adjacent to, and surrounding the 402 Road area, the flow of sewage would not have been disrupted.

The greatest fear is that this river of sewage could be an accumulation of all the faeces flowing from the entire Festac Town estate. My hypothesis is based on my knowledge of the area.

There is a playground nearby which also houses the facility for recyling sewage waste from the estate.

It is the only place in Festac where l have seen the facility. When we played football those days, our football used to fall inside the facility. So we had some catchers whose job was to save the ball from falling into the sewage recycle facility.

I have not fully investigated if the recycling center is functional now but l saw that the area was inaccessible. Why would anyone make a fence around the center? Has someone bought and refilled the sewage recycle facility?

Faecal wastes and sewage are not flowing away from residential areas because the federal government of Nigeria sold the areas/lands where the sewage systems have been chanelled underground.

The foolish people and the useless millionaires who bought the land sealed off the sewage channels.

The challenge before President Buhari and Governor Ambode is to order the immediate demolition of the houses that have been built and used to block the underground sewage channel in Festac Town. That is the only and final solution.

four

4th Avenue by 402 Road, Festac Town                  

There are a lot of messes in Festac Town that are now irreversible. But this particular one is reversible no matter how long the houses have stood. They are illegal structures. If those who sold the land on behalf of the federal government can be found alive, they should be rounded up and prosecuted.

There is a report that one colonel in the Nigerian army actually contributed to this problem. Like many people living on the sewage system and blocking the channels, he is alleged to have applied ”cement” on his side of the channels. That was his own permanent solution to the problem. The implication is that for all he cares ”all the people on 402 road can die of diseases”.

On this matter it is very important that the Lagos state government and the federal government do not apply the Nigerian solution. That would be the sucking away of the river of sewage with the full knowledge that the river will overflow again. We don’t want that!

Nigerians are in love with temporary solutions. They love cosmetic solutions. This is because they want the problem to persist so that someone or a contractor can always make money from the contracts of temporary solutions.

Have you ever wondered why Nigerian roads for example are never going to be of international standard? Go figure now.

Anyway, as for this river of sewage in Festac Town, no one should expect that this is the last time they will be reading about this especially if the state and federal government continue to pretend as if this problem does not exist.

This is now one of my struggles.

My intention is to inform the governor of Lagos State and in fact Mr. Buhari the president of Nigeria, about this danger and for them to act without any delay. There is no need for more paper work or talking on this matter. They should get up from their comfort zones and clear this nonsense.

We are citizens of Nigeria and they owe us this responsibility-to clean our environment. The government should stop killing us with biological weapons!

The people living in this area of Festac Town and people visiting them are exposed to diseases that could end their lives prematurely. They can all die of diseases because of the river of sewage. Invariably the government has been at a biological warfare with the people.

Again, if nothing is done soon, l will be reminding governor Akinwunmi Ambode of this problem. If the tenures of Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode as Lagos state governor and Mr. Buhari as the president of Nigeria do not succeed in demolishing the houses that are blocking the flow of sewage out of Festac, we will carry the struggle to their respective successors.

Our people must not be left to die of diseases because of the carelessness of goverment workers-those who sold lands that are meant to be reserved and preserved.

It is obvious that the residents have done their best and got tired of writing letters of appeals to the local and state government. I can imagine hundreds of letters to the local government. I can just imagine thousands of letters to the Federal Housing Authority. I can imagine some whispers into the ears of former Governor Fashola about this problem.

My columns and my blog pages will not rest until this matter is solved.  We will remind the state and the federal  government about their wickedness and heartlessness.

How can any government allow her people to live under this condition for even 1 day out of life?

It is unacceptable and as a matter of fact, those who knew about this problem before now and refused to act have committed crimes against humanity.

By international standard, allowing people to die unjustly in the absence/presence of war is a criminal offence and that angle will also be pursued in due time.

I am sure that with time, we will find out those who knew about this problem and did nothing.

five

                       402 Road, A Close, Festac Town                            

We are talking about the living conditions of humans here.

I am actually surprise that the people of 402 Road have not made a decision to close down the local govenrment through massive protests. They are faced with a biological warfare and in ignorance have chosen to die because they got tired of writing letters of appeal.

I hope they will find the courage one day to lock down the Amuwo Odofin Local Government so that the sole administrator or the chairman can report to the governor who should tackle the problem head-on or call on the Federal Minsitry of Works and Housing to remove all obstructions in the way of sewage flow in Festac.

We must combine all our efforts and unite in order to rescue ourselves from maladministration.

The people everywhere must move away from the era of writing letters of appeal to actually carrying out demonstrations that will shut down their local councils or even the state government if necessary.

The problems and challenges facing Nigeria are many but we must tarry and remain united in the fight for the good of all.

Evil will continue to rise in the land when all the good people remain silent

Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, please go and clear Festac Town of the lingering biological warfare.

Mr. Mohammadu Buhari, please go and clear the messes left by the federal workers who planted biological warfare in Festac Town.

I stand with the people of 402 Road.

Olu Falae’s Kidnapp/Abduction Is An Act Of War

By Adeola Aderounmu

Update….Chief Falae is now a free man again. We are waiting to hear the true version of what happened. Fulani or Yoruba or Igbo kidnappers???

Baba please let us hear. 24.sept 2015 update.

Previous Post below:

Olu Falae is missing.

Olu Falae

Olu Falae

One thing that the police confirmed is that Fulani herdsmen invaded Olu Falae’s farm. They attacked him and his workers.

Until there are information to prove this theory wrong, then one is bound to react on the statement made by the police.

If it will turn out to be an inside job, we don’t know yet.

Therefore our reactions are based on what we know now.

The only confirmed aspect of this story gives the impression of a foreign assault on Yorubaland and a direct invitation to war.

The national security agencies and the state police command must make the finding of Olu Falae their common priority.

What has happened to Olu Falae is completely unacceptable.

The Hausa Herdsmen or the Hausa people that may have abducted or kidnapped Falae must produce him alive, immediately.

If anything happens to him, no one will be able to guarantee the security of the Hausa community in Western Nigeria.

This is why Buhari must speak the language that his people understand.

Our common hope is that the police and the other security agencies will see to the end of the dilemma ASAP.

Whatever any Yoruba citizen has written about the seriousness of this kidnapp/abduction must not be taken with a pinch of salt.

The well-being of the Yoruba people is parmount in the Yorubaland. When one of us is unduly harrassed or subjected to this form of unnecessary humiliation, then we are all harrassed and humiliated.

I am shocked beyond words that some idiots and useless elements within Nigeria will abduct a yoruba elder from Yorubaland.

If the abductors are Hausa herdsmen, someone should remind them of the genesis of the Nigerian civil war. This is even worse because the man is on his farm in his own country-Western Nigeria.

The government of Nigeria must ensure that the fools are apprehended as soon as possible and that Baba Falae returns home.

There are no alternatives to this demand.

A Savage Mark

When a suspected criminal is made a federal minister and if the case is not an isolated incidence but a trend, then you have the Nigerian politics-which is largely a government of the criminals, by the criminals for the criminals.

A Savage Mark

By Adeola Aderounmu

Which Way Nigeria?

When a suspected criminal is made a federal minister and if the case is not an isolated incidence but a trend, then it may not be unreasonable to state that Nigeria is ruled partly by criminals. What is more saddening than this is the obvious reality that the situation gets worse by the day.

Exactly 2 weeks ago l wrote an article titled A Savage Situation. It was to join the protest against the re-nomination of Mr. Obanikoro as a minister in the cabinet of Nigeria’s lazy and corrupt ruler Mr. Jonathan.

As it stands now it appears that Mr. Obanikoro was approved by the senate.

The fact that the name was not thrown out as soon as it appeared in the senate is also a confirmation that the Nigerian National Assembly is a den of touts and criminals.

The lawmakers who are opposed to the approval of suspected criminal Mr. Obanikoro and thereby staged a walk out during the deliberation process may feel hurt coming under a general classification-den of criminals. But it is not far from the absolute true situation.

To this day there are no clear information as to the several millions of dollars that is earmarked for the Nigerian National Assembly and the House of Representatives monthly. The general perception is that these houses are the most expensive to run in the world.

In the type of democracy that is practised in Nigeria the Nigerian National Assembly is a complete waste and so far a part of the embarrassment that befell Nigeria’s laughable and ridiculous democracy.

Which sane National Assembly will harbour a failed executive government for 6 years? Which National Assembly will look away with all the impunities, illegalities and extreme corruption in the land? It has to be the one with the same mindset.

It must take a corrupt National Assembly to tolerate a corrupt executive and to look away at the extreme rot in the land.

The man who heads the Nigerian senate has been around for a very long time and he has done a lot to contribute to the destructions of several institutions in Nigeria. Now he appears to have moulded the senate into a criminal-approving organ.  This is not the first institution he is poised to destroy.

David Mark’s name will be indelible in the history of Nigeria. This generation will remember him for the expression-telephone is not for the poor. After the reckless statement one of the treasured possessions of the middle and low-income earners in Nigeria, the land telephones became historic and disappeared from millions of homes!

David Mark staged-managed the approval of Mr. Obanikoro, a suspected criminal despite the strength of the opposing voices. In Nigeria this means that Ghana-must-go bags containing raw cash (probably in dollars) has left the presidency or central bank and emerged in the houses of most of the senators or their bank accounts.

This is an aspect of the Nigerian politics-which is largely a government of the criminals, by the criminals for the criminals.

The people of Nigeria, I mean the ordinary citizens constituting about 90% of the population who are living from hand to mouth and unsure of the next meal are long forgotten in the political equation in Nigeria.

There might be elections in Nigeria at the end of this month. The coast is not clear. Both the ruling party and the main opposition party are moving around with wardrobes full of guilt and rotten skeletons.

Mr. Jonathan has literarily emptied the Nigerian treasury during his recent relocation to South West Nigeria. He’s been holed up in the region doling out monies as if it comes from his personal inheritance. Such is the height of corruption and stupidity in Nigerian politics.

Mr. Buhari is back from the UK, has not spoken much at the campaigns in Nigeria and is funded by unexplained wealth.

Now Nigeria remains at the point where appointing a criminal into a government is normal because it is assumed that there are no saints in government or that we who are politicians are all criminals. It is amazing that the citizens are quiet as the impunity continues to reach record levels.

The ordinary people are in real trouble. The future is so uncertain. Bandits have taken control of governance almost all of the years after independence. There is nothing happening today that is new.

The probability that ordinary Nigerians will get a better life out of any government under the current arrangement is very slim. The chance is narrow under a system that is designed to oppress and suppress.

Change is not only getting rid of the criminals in all political offices and public institutions, it also means that the political structures of Nigeria and the various institutions at the federal, state and local levels need to be reassessed for their functionalities.

Change is when people look in the mirror and see whether they are ready to shed evil for the common good of all.

Many concerned citizens and organisations continue to argue for regional government or true federalism.

If change does not come from the ruling party and if change does not come from the opposition, the category of Nigerians describe above will one day learn that they have to take their own destinies in their hands.

Ironically both fear and hope have hindered the Nigerian revolution.

It always appears that something will happen in the positive direction, but after a while hopes are always dashed. In recent history hope was dashed in 1993.  In 2007, many people were dumbfounded because it was not EUREKA. In the last 6 years Nigerians have learnt many new lessons as hopelessness and evil overshadowed good and happiness.

The fear factors were well analysed by the late Afro-beat legend Fela Anikulapo. It is one of the biggest hindrances to freedom for ordinary Nigerians.

The downtrodden Nigerians need to get organised. They need to be formidable. They need to conquer their fears and rescue themselves from the wolves.

It does not look like the wolves are going away soon if a David-Mark senate approves a fellow criminals back into its fold at the executive level.

I don’t think the wolves and the oppressors are going away if they continue to empty the treasuries for one or two accomplices, for the selfish royal families, for the religious rulers, for themselves and for their families without any consequence.

The wolves cannot depart for as long as it is possible to gallivant with stolen and unexplained wealth.

To the 90% Nigerians suffering from the over half a century of political looting and economic suppression, your future is in your hands. A savage mark can only be erased by force and popular revolt.

Why Assassin Mbu Must Leave Western Nigeria Now!

Mr. Mbu’s prowess in killing ordinary civilians needs a converter-mechanism. His killing ratio of 1 police: 20 civilians may be useful in the attempt to end the Boko Haram war in a record time of 5 weeks. He should be posted to North Eastern Nigeria

Why Assassin Mbu Must Leave Western Nigeria Now!

By Adeola Aderounmu

Civilians have expressed shock and condemned the speech credited to Nigeria’s most notorious cop Mr. Joseph Mbu. APC the opposition party has condemned the speech while the PDP is yet to release any statement.

Mr. Mbu said that he will kill 20 civilians for every policeman that is killed. If not for the useless laws and absence of justice in Nigeria Mr. Mbu should have been arrested and questioned for making such reckless and unguarded utterances.

If found guilt of unwarranted or unnecessary incitement, he ought to be sacked or demoted.

But some people are already laughing at these suggestions because they have come to terms with the fact that Nigeria remains a jungle and a country where some people are above the laws.

It was for such stupid anomalies that Mr. Jonathan could talk of lynching a person called ole (thief) in Western Nigeria when asked about the difference between corruption and stealing. With Jonathan you will never find a bigger cluelessness anywhere in the world. He owns the limit.

Anyone who listened or endured all of Jonathan’s recent media chat must have a feeling of mental rape. He was just a waste of space and time.

Mr. Mbu has committed many atrocities across Nigeria. He remains a free man, a favourite in this clueless and corrupt regime of Jonathan.

Notorious Policeman, Joseph Mbu

Notorious Policeman, Joseph Mbu

Mr. Mbu is a killing machine waiting for the next bloody episode of his life. A lot has been written about this man’s notoriety everywhere he went or worked as a law enforcement officer.

With his indecent manner, thirst for blood and general disrespect for the rule of law, Mr. Mbu is not fit to live among normal people.

If he can kill 20 civilians for every dead policeman, what is he still doing in Western Nigeria?

Jonathan’s lazy and corrupt government will need such a trained killer in the war against Boko Haram.

Mr. Mbu’s prowess in killing ordinary civilians needs a converter-mechanism. This conversion and his killing ratio of 1:20 may be useful in the attempt to end the Boko Haram war in a record time of 5 weeks. He should be re-posted to Borno, in North Eastern Nigeria.

He will be an asset to the inefficient Nigerian army that cannot take care of an ordinary insurgent giving it room to become a cankerworm that has carved away 15% of Nigeria’s territory.

Having written about the police on a number of occasions especially between 2007 and 2009, l decided to look back at my essays.

In 2008 the Nigerian police was among the prime violators of human rights in Nigeria. The report at that time summed up the extra judicial killings that took place under one AIG called Okiro.

The report also came after a bloody lie from Mr. Okiro that Nigeria was one of the safest places on earth in 2007. That was at a time when he reviewed a certain 3 month period and told us that the Nigerian Police:

  • arrested 1628 robbery suspects
  • killed 785 robbers
  • lost 62 police officers
  • recovered 1582 arms and 6514 ammunition
  • recovered 242 stolen vehicles

He probably cooked up these figures as we know that official figures are always different from the realities. The 2008 report on the activities of the Nigerian police put his claims in the thrash bins where they belong.

In any case Mr. Joseph Mbu’s posting to Western Nigeria seemed to be timed and planned to coincide with an agenda coming from the lazy and corrupt government of Goodluck Jonathan whose reign is now known globally to be a serious badluck to Nigeria and Nigerians.

Mr. Mbu it now seemed was posted to Western Nigeria as part of the scheme of Mr. Jonathan to intimidate the people of Western Nigeria through killings or murders.

The statements credited to Mr. Mbu means that he was sent to Lagos to execute a script. He could not keep his mouth closed or quiet. He was excited about the renewed license to kill. He has now threatened to kill 20 civilians for every policeman that is killed.

That will set a new world record for openly professed and planned extra judicial killings.

I insist that Mr. Mbu should be taken into custody and interrogated. It might seem an impossible mission to interrogate a man carrying out the orders of Jonathan or some elements whose goals we now see clearly. But he must answer some questions.

Why does he think that a policeman will be killed in the first place?

Is he anticipating that his men will start a trouble that may warrant the civil people protecting themselves? Is he afraid that his men will be killed if for example they try to interfere with the electoral process in Western Nigeria? Is he anticipating a backlash as a result of the leaked rigging process that took place in Ekiti?

Mr. Mbu was posted to western Nigeria for a reason. It is getting clearer.

The people of Western Nigeria must be on alert and resist with whatever it takes any man or agent of evil who threatens to decimate them.

Mr. Mbu must be placed on the radar and alert system of the custodian of our commonwealth and security in Western Nigeria and he must be treated as a threat or a terrorist.

As a matter of fact, all the governors in Western Nigeria ought to rise up irrespective of their political parties and push Mr. Mbu out of Western Nigeria now.

Mr. Mbu can actually kill a policeman tomorrow and put him on the street to actualise the start of his plans. According to his silly, wicked and condemnable track records, this man can do anything for his masters in Abuja.

Therefore an intensive campaign to rid Western Nigeria of Mr. Mbu should start in earnest. Western Nigeria cannot accommodate a federal government-sponsored assassin.

Any attempt from Mr. Mbu’s part to take down 20 citizens of Western Nigeria for the life of one police officer which he is also ready to stage manage should be resisted with the ultimate resistance. He should be caged and sent packing to wherever he is coming from.

When this season of madness, which includes the truncating of the democratic process that was to take place on February 14 2015, is over, that urgent call to determine the future of Nigeria must be put on the table quickly.

That is if Mr. Jonathan does not tear Nigeria into pieces with his reckless decisions, strengthening of terrorists groups and zombification of the Nigerian military.

Western Nigeria can’t accommodate a senseless and thoughtless Mr. Mbu-a fellow planning a mass murder on behalf of federal agents.

The emerging generations of Nigerians must discuss the type of government that suits them with true federalism as a prime suggestion.

Also it now seems that the structures and operations of the security forces including the army and the police also need to be discussed.

Among other urgent matters that will shape the future appearance of Nigeria’s geographical and political landscape, the call for state police has just gathered more valid points.

I take it very seriously and in fact very personal when a foreign policeman threatens to decimate my people in the region that my fore-fathers fought for and protected with their blood.

Mr. Mbu is an assassin and he must leave now!
