The End Sars Protests need metamorphosis to #EndNigeria

By Adeola Aderounmu

Adeola

In recent days, running to weeks, protests have emerged across Nigeria. Mostly, young people from all works of lives are calling for an end to police brutality.

This is my first reaction to the protests. Obviously, a lot of people can’t find me on facebook because l deactivated my account during the summer and l tried so hard to stay away from it.

On twitter, l have not used the hashtag end sars for once. But on my microblog on instagram, my own hashtag still remains #ENDNIGERIA.

I am in full support of the end sars protest. However, l am also following the process as it develops because the goal definitely cannot be to end (only) police brutality and have the other situations as usual. I understand the demands have grown to 7 point agenda.

The agenda may grow to 100 point agenda for all it is worth.

As it is today, and as l have called for in the last couple of years, Nigeria must end, any demand or list of demand short of putting an end to the misery called Nigeria is half-baked bread.

Let me make my points clearer.

If you have been following my blog, it would appear that l am responsible for the end sars protest as a disguise for the calls l have made here and on my micro-instagram blog. On several occasions and very consistently and persistently, l have written that we have a long walk to freedom and we have to end the order of things in Nigeria to even begin to formulate a way forward.

The nations entrapped in Nigeria must be free, at all cost and by any means. It is the freedom of the nations within Nigeria that holds the keys to the prosperity of the regions and the people.

It won´t be eureka when the nations emerged but it should serve as the first step to securing the future of the indigenes today and the unborn generations tomorrow.

I want to live in a Yorubaland that is akin to the biblical fable paradise. I know it is a mirage to have such a dream now that l am 48. But l have nephews and nieces and l want their children and children’s children to inherit that land that l dream of.

That land is not possible under the present useless unitary system in Nigeria. That land is not possible together with other people whom l don’t share anything in common with and whose sole aim it to remain parasitic on me and suck the hell out of my existence. I need to break free before my young family members and their born and unborn children can inherit that land l dream of.

The closest thing to my dream was the Western Nigeria that existed before the 2 useless coups of 1966. Now, we have to even take more radical steps to ensure that when l break free this time, no stupid human being can rope me and my ethnic group into one useless union or country that has refused to progress for more than 60 years.

Read my blog to know my views and all the ground breaking theories l shared about Nigeria. Don’t judge my state of mind by this article alone.

If we die as Nigerians, and not as free members of the different nations entrapped in Nigeria, our lives have been wasted and we were good for nothing, just like our parents.

Nigerian politicians must not go unpunished even if the regions or nations emerge. All the useless people and politicians who have stolen our commonwealth, built houses in Dubai, London and US and who kept several billions in safe havens outside Nigeria should be punished. They should only start to think about being members of the new order in their respective nations after coughing the monies they stole. Those monies will go a long way in the rebirth of the nations.

Many politicians and military gangsters forming statesmanship ought to rot in jail for the rest of their lives.

I don’t know where end sars protests will culminate but if it does not bring about the independence of the nations and the freedom of the people, it still fall short of what l have advocated for and in my recent microblogs, l wrote that while we think that we have made progress, we have only actually deceived ourselves and before we know it, we are old and dying.

Again, let me be clear. The emergence of the nation may even lead to war and violence and fight for power and supremacy. Still, it is better than to live in perpetual slavery in Nigeria. I know it won’t be that bad because the end sars has shown that the indigenes trapped in Nigeria can actually cooperate to achieve common goals. Imagine how sweet and smoother it will be if they spoke the same language, wear the same clothes, share a common identity and a proud heritage. I think it will be much better.

I could go on as usual, because once l start to write, l drift and l almost cannot stop.

Summariy, l am with you, THE NIGERIN YOUTH. AT 48 and after many years of blogging and risking my lives coming in and out of Nigeria, it is good to leave the batton and see how you carry on.

I am with you not until the end of sars but until the end of the fraud called Nigeria. I hope to tarry long.

All the points on your agenda are what you need to take to your respective nations when you get your independence. Those points will be the start of new code of conducts for you and the people you would elect in your new nations. If the nations don’t emerge, you are going back to square one. Save this post and read it again in 2023 if you allow the useless APC and PDP to linger.

APC and PDP are criminal organisations. INEC too, is a criminal organisation. All the politicians are criminals. Sars is an offshoot of the criminal organisation called the Nigerian government. So this is beyond sars and we all know that.

I always say it is a long walk to freedom. If you stop at end sars and if the nations never emerge, the end sars protests will sustain the monsters in the system. It will bring forth new opportunists and they will be more brutal than what you have bargained for.

The freedom from Nigeria is now or never.

A People Who May Choose Slavery Over Freedom

By Adeola Aderounmu

20181212_1153361464806359.jpg

In less than 2 weeks Nigerians will go to the polls in a nationwide presidential election.

If APC or PDP wins the election, it would mean that the majority of the people have decided that 200 million Nigerians will continue to live in slavery in their own country.

This is my verdict as a social blogger and it may not tally with the views of the readers or voters.

But in my opinion, if you have tried something for 20 years and it doesn’t work, it means that you need to revolt or make a drastic or radical change of opinions.

Trying to separate between APC or PDP in my personal opinion I stupidity. Buhari and Atiku were both members of APC until about a year ago when Atiku left APC. Don’t even try to track the political parties that Atiku have been member of. You may go crazy trying to follow the political story of Africa’s greatest political prostitute.

Buhari is not in control of Nigeria. All he has done in the past 4 years is to bring criminals from PDP to APC, grant them immunity from prosecution and promote poverty in Nigeria. You have to follow the Nigerian political campaigns to know that Buhari is mentally ill and unfit to even take care of himself. Somebody needs to help him and he should be in a mental institution. So, anyone who is still supporting Buhari is either doing it for stupidity or absolute ignorance.

There is a promising SOWORE who has ideas and we say he has no experience. Nonsense talk. Where has Buhari’s experience taken us? Nigeria is the poverty capital of the world. What experience are we talking about? Buhari has no education. He cannot read. He cannot write and he cannot read what he has written. We are in 2019 people, not 1179. Even then, people could write and read.

Atiku is a seasoned criminal. His mission is to steal like he did between 1999 and 2007. My generation is now 47 years average age and are we saying 47 year olds cannot govern a country? Buhari started contributing to the destruction of Nigeria before he was 30!

In any case, l will continue to warn us of the dangers of allowing criminals to rule in Nigeria. APC and PDP are full of criminals who cannot prosecute one another before they are the same.

I was in Nigeria in the summer of 2018, so when people say that we are not on ground, all l see is their stupidity and narrow minds. Poverty is written all over Nigeria. Social madness is all over the place.

Everything is destroyed. Health. Education. Electricity doe not even exist.

There is no revolution and that even beats the imagination of the sane world. But when a chance comes like this to bury APC and PDP, and you see people who you think are normal supporting APC and PDP, then you know that there may also be some extraordinary force controlling the minds of Nigerians.

How can a people choose to be slaves in their own country? The answer to this question will avail much.

I continue to maintain that in my own opinion, when things got worse under APC, my thought was that both APC and PDP would be abandoned. In fact, l don’t understand how these parties are still in existence, how much more that they will be getting voted for.

One would have thought that with civilisation and awareness, that both APC and PDP ought to die natural deaths as both political parties having failed to deliver in 20 long years!

The Nigerian youths are the biggest disappointments in all of these. I do not even consider myself a youth anymore knowing that l will soon be 50!

But when 50 years old down to 20 years old are shouting Atiku and Buhari, you know that there is hopelessness and outright stupidity in Nigeria. If these youth and younger people are not mad, how can they be rallying round criminals when there are other parties and young candidates s alternatives.

There are things l will never understand even if people try to make me do. They say APC and PDP have structures, what nonsense structures? If the young people look away from the structures and queue behind Sowore, the nonsense structures you talk about will be empty or collapse.

But l know that poverty has been used as a weapon. Still my opinion is that if we had used our senses, we would have spread the awareness on the need to stake our future in new people and new ideas.

But even with one day to the election, nothing is too late if people spread the message. It is an easy message. Vote new candidates and let us take control of Nigeria.

When we do, we will arrest all the criminals in APC and PDP, collect back looted funds and add them to the investment for the future.

I COULD GO ON…but back to work now.

Cheers

The Cost Of Freedom

Unless a country or a group of people are willingly to genuinely give their today in the name of true freedom, their children will never be free tomorrow.

The Cost Of Freedom

Which Way Nigeria?
Which Way Nigeria?

By Adeola Aderounmu

Nigeria’s 54th year as a so-called independent country was marked in several ways. One headline that caught my attention was the one that stated that poverty in Nigeria has been reduced by 50%.

The headline is first class fraud.

Statistics was one of my favourite subjects during my first and second degrees at the University of Lagos. It is one of those subjects that I really felt comfortable doing. At Idiaraba it was Medical Statistics and oh, how I enjoyed every bit of it and the lecturer was awesome.

Poverty may have been reduced by 50%, it depends on the sample size or the part of the population where you draw your samples from.

So I can conclude that if we take the population of the follow-follow people flocking Aso Rock since the inception of Jonathan’s administration, he has successfully tackled the poverty among 50% of the ass-lickers including the expanding society of Aso Rock Bull Dogs.

If I cast my dragnets at the places that I know like Oshodi, Ojuelegba or Okokomaiko, my data will produce a result that will make nonsense of the results produced by some drunkards in Aso Rock. More than 90% of the people will be below poverty level and living on less than N500 a day.

For more than ever before majority of Nigerians groan under an increasingly senseless and insensitive government. Increasing the death rate and lowering the life expectancy of a population does not mean that poverty has been reduced.

In several essays I have depicted the nature, spread and characteristics of poverty in Nigeria as one of the worst hidden tragedies in the world. I have also been very quick to dismiss the claims of the few people who escaped the threshold of poverty sometimes through luck or unmerited opportunities that their situations cannot be used as the yardstick.

The title of this essay came as a result of my feelings in recent months. I’ll approach it.

I do know, and convincingly too that there are a few people in Sweden who have cultivated the habits of reading my articles, not because they want to be “my readers” but because they “enjoy” this culture of gossiping about “what did he write this week”?

I am happy for them, that they found a weekly delight.

I’ll keep them in the dark by not defining their range but amongst them are people who need to understand though that I have the right to my views about Nigeria no matter what they think or feel.

I cannot help those who found out too late that they had been talking to someone who has been writing about Nigeria since 2001.

One of my pictures on Facebook must have tilted the table over. I had a T-shirt with the inscription Oduduwa republic on my mind. It is one of my ideas of freedom. The image must have gone viral among some folks. I am still happy for them and I hope they get a pat on the back when they make their reports.

I wonder how much shock my Swedish-Nigerian readers suffered in the last 4 weeks when I had written stories about love. I will choose love any day over a failed country under the bondage of crazy and deaf rulers.

The love stories came to me after a recent trip to Finland. I think my ancestors love nature and they prefer the solitude of a calm sea to bring me teachings and guidance.

Today I wanted to write a story about “The Dreamer Boy” but I thought some people will like to know if I am still in tune with Nigeria and how the drunkards have reduced poverty by 50%.

What is more interesting than this blatant lie is the growth and spread of individuals, groups and associations that are intensifying their doubts about their continuous recognitions as Nigerians.

They are weighing the options of bailing out of a jaga-jaga Nigeria. There are many t-shirts nowadays with a lot of messages and one boy even tore his green passport and posted it on YouTube.

I have a lot of reflections on this emerging trend especially among “Nigerians” who are far away from their regions in Nigeria, based mostly in Europe, Asia and America.

For the Nigeria we have today became a total mess as a result of our collective failures as citizens and participants or onlookers in the successive corrupt and useless governments in Nigeria over the years and even to this day in October 2014.

The Nigeria of today was not the dream of the men and women who fought collectively to wrestle the country from the colonialists.

The reason we write or recite or even highlights repeatedly our failures as a country is because some people need the education at some point on what has happened and what we expected. Where Nigeria is today on the scale of human development and quality of life is a complete disgrace to the intellectual abilities of the African race.

One failed government blames the other and the cycle of idiocy rotates as nobody tackles the menaces of corruption, federal character (yes, it is a menace), nepotism and tribalism.

It was the greed in Nigerians and the corruption in their veins that exposed the madness of the colonialists who married different nations into one entity. “Irreconcilable differences” is an expression made in Nigeria. The crazy rulers destroyed the institutions of governance and many crazy people in government stole for themselves, their friends and their unborn generations-even to this day.

Since the mid-1960s, no government has made efforts to return power and freedom to the regions just the way it was when education, health and technological developments were functional until greed and outright stupidity reared their ugly heads.

The process of divide and rule, looting and total disregard for the rules of law continued and reached a new dimension since the inception of pseudo-democracy in 1999.

For Nigeria I have oscillated between hope and hopelessness and my understanding of statistics says it is time to try something else.

I am all for the freedom and the emancipation of the people who are currently enslaved in Nigeria.

It is imperative to define the modalities and the cost of freedom so that the sycophants and the major players of today do not ruin the future of our children and grandchildren the same way they ruined our parents lives and displaced us to different places around the globe.

I wish that all the groups and associations around the world will emerge from their clandestine positions and start to talk openly. The Scottish people just had a vote. The outcome was not as important as the action they took but it will define the things to come in the future. Their children will grow up feeling more secured.

It is old fashioned to seek freedom in the dark rooms. It is very primitive to seek independence through confidential emails or social media closed groups.

If you want something, make it open, make it plain. Go for it and carry the people who need the change along.

Healthy debates, open groups, open discussions and other form of transparent dealings may help to check some of my personal fears regarding the stakeholders in all these clandestine groups scattered around the world.

What is the cost of freedom?

The cost of freedom lies in service to humanity. It is not looting the treasury and telling stupid lies about security and poverty.

The cost of freedom in public service lies in willingness to die at the altar of truth. It is not in building houses of gold on the polluted land across Nigeria.

The cost of freedom is the deprivation that comes with the belief that humanity comes before self.

The cost of freedom will be correlated to conventional free thinking and explorative mindedness.

It will not be locked to dying for the sake of acquiring virgins in an imaginary place. It will not have anything to do with deadly assembly at the feet of gangster mortals called prophets. The cost of freedom will rid a nation of the defenders of evil.

Unless a country or a group of people are willingly to genuinely give their today in the name of true freedom, their children will never be free tomorrow.

For the nations entangled in Nigeria these sacrifices are non-negotiable.  Along with the irrepressible truth, they will be the ultimate cost of freedom.
