2019: Why So Many Criminals Want To Rule Nigeria

Nigeria is yet at another crossroad and it is fundamental to state that those who contributed to the problems in Nigeria are never going to be a part of the solution. The solutions to Nigeria’s problems are a multifaceted approach

The hope that came with the APC change agenda in 2015 finally died. The greatest indicator to this fact is the record number of criminal politicians that want to rule Nigeria. In my understanding, to see a monumental failure as shown by the APC-Buhari mandate was a great inspiration to pretenders and cunning men now aspiring to the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

2019: Why So Many Criminals Want To Rule Nigeria

From a near-past perspective, if Mr. Jonathan had succeeded, Buhari would never have become the president of Nigeria. His emergence was not as a result of the voting that took place in 2015. It was a grand takeover of Nigeria irrespective of the electoral process. Jonathan’s speech that his ambition was not worth the blood of any Nigerian summarized that submission beyond any doubt. It was a civilian coup that had the backing of all former military gangsters and a handful of notorious and corrupt civilian politicians in both APC and PDP.

In 2015 despite all the glaring evidence that the sponsors of Buhari were all corrupt politicians and individuals of questionable character, there was an air of expectation that maybe, just maybe the entrance of Buhari would be a mark of turning points and massive repentance. The change slogan was supposed to mean a deviation from the past and the evolution of truth, accountability and the re-emergence of a country where human dignity and credibility would be promoted. It was a grand deception.

Buhari who emerged despite his lack of qualification for the office has failed in all areas. There are some situations that are unforgivable because it turned out that Buhari is a great liar and a man who cannot stand by his words. He said he would end foreign travels for medical reasons but he championed the cause and still plans to continue to visit UK for treatment. His children are still attending schools abroad despite the pledge to end such.

Just before this article was published, we read and saw how Buhari’s wife had been involved in a multibillion naira scam through her ADC. These people have no shame and they are a disgrace to humanity.

In Buhari’s regime, corruption reached a new height and he appears not to be bothered. In the history of Nigeria, Buhari’s government will go down as the most tribalistic and nepotic. Buhari has no shame and he does not see anything wrong with the appointments he made and kept making.

In all these and much more came a glaring view of what Buhari stood for and how incompetent and unknowledgeable he is in public service and administration. Nigerians are suffering more today than ever. It may appear reasonable to conclude that what Nigerians are going through today is a summation of the effects of the misrule of both the PDP and APC.

However, I do not agree with the notion that it must get worse before it gets better. Things can stay the same as they were in 2015 before the APC government took over. The morning will always show the day. What the Buhari-APC mandate has been up to for the past 3 years will land Nigeria in doom if it is not checkmated as soon as possible. This regime, its characteristics and the outcomes will spell more doom for Nigeria.

It is possible to reprint the manifesto and the promises of APC. An impossible mission will be to match any of those promises or manifesto point with an outcome. This government is a waste of time and is not in any way different from the Jonathan administration in terms of value added to the people’s lives. One of the saddest memory that this regime will leave behind is the lack of implementation of the first point on it’s manifesto. Buhari is not interested in the idea of political and economic restructuring of Nigeria despite riding on the idea to power.

The record number of presidential aspirants in Nigeria today is a reflection of the grand failure of the Buhari administration. Buhari habours criminals and he protects them gallantly. He had been away for several months and cannot cope with the hassles and demands of his office. He is absent minded and extremely insensitive to the challenges that the people are facing. But the faults is not all his. Across Nigeria, governance is a huge joke. The bulk stops on Buhari’s table because he is not leading by any good example.

A quick review of the lists of presidential aspirants in both the APC and PDP shows that Nigeria is in for a recycling of criminals should Buhari or any of the aspirants from APC or PDP become the next president of Nigeria.

There is no single one of them that is not liable for the present predicament that Nigeria is in today. It is impossible to print on each of them. But look at Atiku and Saraki for a start. If you look at the alleged criminal charges on these two, you will be amazed what you find. They are hiding behind the slogan “innocent until proven guilty” knowing fully well that they suppressed and destroy the rule of law in Nigeria. These two men and their families would have been hung on the tree of shame for life in a sane country where the rule of law is supreme.

It is the same for several of the politicians in Nigeria today thriving on a useless political system propelled by extreme impunity that is catalyzed by another senseless concept called the immunity clause

Conclusively, Nigeria is yet at another crossroad and it is fundamental to state that those who contributed to the problems in Nigeria are never going to be a part of the solution. The solutions to Nigeria’s problems are a multifaceted approach.

The people must unite and make a collective decision to adopt a functional political system. What we practice today in Nigeria is a very useless political system that ridicules the intellectual capacity of the black race. We are shaming ourselves and Africa!

There is a need to bring governance back to the grassroots and enshrine it back in the regions. The politics of Abuja should be abolished and the National Assembly dismantled. It is draining money, energy and resources that could be used for important development process.

The people also need to make a collective decision about the fate of criminal politicians. The best way is to fight till death for the independence of the judiciary so that the law can apply equally for the poor and the rich. In the regions and in every aspect of life (politics, work and services) the concept of immunity clause should be erased for ever and ever.

A wise thing for the people of Nigeria to do in 2019 is to revolt and turn their backs to the APC and the PDP because the deflection of members of these political parties means that the two parties are the same and they are out to destroy Nigeria and Nigerians. It is pure evil the eyes can see.

Finally, it must be stressed that whatever happens to Nigeria, just like what had been happening since 1960, are the outcome of our collective actions and inactions. History will never be kind to those who did nothing to salvage this country from the precipice of ruins.

Saraki: A Tragedy That Must Not Befall Nigeria

By Adeola Aderounmu

Bukola Saraki is scheming. He wants to one day become the president of Nigeria.

We have been asleep in Nigeria for too long and one day we must put a stop to this nonsense.

This essay is not about Saraki alone. I have written about several Nigerian politicians who are criminals.

I know that say: innocent until proven guilty. But since the laws of Nigerians are a means to oppress the poor and the ordinary citizen, people like Saraki always get away.

They are never ashamed of the allegations and accusations made about that. They do not resign out of annoyance. They always hang on because politics in Nigeria is thw easiest way to steal.

Nigerian politics is a more lucrative criminal activity than armed robbery.

We are in grave danger is a man who hid away Nigeria’s money according to the revelation of the panama papers is allowed to rule Nigeria.

Saraki is one of the possessed demons occuopying our political space. They have no control over their urge to steal or loot. For them it is a competition, to become the richest through looting. There are too many of them.

I have written about Tinubu and l have written about Atiku. I have written about Obasanjo. These are people who lied about how they made money. They used stolen wealth which they converted to personal wealth.

Babangida is their king.

Saraki visited Babangida. He is seeking endorsement of a junta. Babangida stole Nigeria dry and plunge the country into austerity times. We never recovered. How can one person steal more than 12 billion dollars and walk free? Nigeria is a crazy country so far.

Saraki emptied a bank and walked free. We cannot depend on our weak and powerless judiciary. We have the right as citizens to speak the truth anf shame these criminals.

Saraki has also meet Obasanjo. Obasanjo is part of the problems with Nigeria and it is time to ignore him and all he endorses. It has been from one evil to another.

Now l read Saraki is meeting one Edwin Clarke. Saraki lacks integrity. He stole in PDP, took cover in APC, got himself more wings and an air of importance.

All that will fizzle away.

My hope for Nigerians is that they should wake up and smell the coffee.

No doubt these crooks like Saraki in PDP and others in APC have stolen enough money to want to control and influence the 2019 elections.

We can prove them wrong.

Let us carry out our revolution in 2019 by dumping these criminals in APC and PDP.

We have new and younger presidential candidates who do not have experience in looting and political assasinations.

We must project a new person to power.

We must change to a new system of government that will promote regional and local development.

We must enpower the police and the judiciary and make them independent so that all criminal politocians can be served with true justice.

We must never allow criminals like Saraki to rule Nigeria.

Nigeria 2019: The Last Chance?

The carpet crossing shows that our politicians are normadic criminals. They failed in PDP and they failed in APC. APC on its own is a monumental fraud. The first item on its agenda is the restructuring of Nigeria. But for the past 3 years Buhari who came to power on the back on this promise has done everything in his power to block the restructuring of Nigeria. Isn’t this the problem when we all supported an illiterate soldier to become the president?

AND If any young person in Nigeria is still expending energy on APC or PDP, then we have a serious problem. The problem must be beyond the Stockholm syndrome. A few years ago, l actually defined the Nigerian syndrome. Go and check out the meaning of both!

Nigeria 2019: The Last Chance?

The Days Of ignorance Are Over

By Adeola Aderounmu

When the French president visited Nigeria recently, he urged the young people in Nigeria to become active in politics. Before his admonition it was already clear to the young people that they need to become active and save Nigeria. Macron became the president of France at the age of 40.  He is a good example of the power of youth and the power of change.

There are other examples of young people emerging as the leaders of their countries. The Canadian prime Minister Justin Trudeau was born in 1971. He is just 6 years older than Macron.

Let me go straight to my points for this essay.

In 1999 Nigeria returned to civilian rule albeit a power change that remained mostly controlled by the military both in person (Obasanjo and Buhari are ex-military dictators) and in structure (the Nigerian constitution and government is based on a unitary system of government that is synonymous with military style of governance).

From 1999 to this day two major political parties have dominated the political sphere (but there has been a transformation of some parties and mergers as well). One thing that cannot be questioned or doubted today is the failure of the People’s Democratic Party from 1999 to 2015 and the All People’s Congress from 2015 to the time of writing this essay.

The other things that are clear are, for example,  many corrupt and incompetent politicians migrated from the PDP when the APC was formed and a good example is the Senate president Mr. Saraki, a man who like many that parade the political sphere since 1999, is corrupt and hiding away Nigeria’s monies at some haven.

It is also clear that the All People’s Congress, APC, is full of corrupt and criminal politicians just exactly like the PDP. It is overwhelmingly clear that the APC and the PDP are birds of the same feather and the pieces of evidence are there for any reasonable and thoughtful human being to see. It is obvious that the PDP and APC are not interested in the welfare of the people of Nigeria.

In the last 3 years, APC kept comparing how many people that have died under its regime with the number that died under Jonathan’s regime. In the last 3 years, the APC did not succeed in preventing the sliding of more Nigerians into the poverty zone and Nigeria became the poverty capital of the world.

Mr. Buhari remains a military man in mufti, he does not respect court orders. Nigeria is not getting better. The APC wants more time but the overwhelming facts show that Buhari is incompetent, that APC did not do anything to cut the wages and expenses incurred by the National Assembly and the House of Representatives, the budget padding remain unabated and above all the way things are today in Nigeria are worse than at any other time in our history.

The greatest failure of Buhari and APC is in the lack of protection for the lives of the citizens. Under Buhari, people are slaughtered like goats and chickens. Buhari himself has no value for human life except that of his children.

He checked his son out of the country after a traffic accident when thousands of Nigeria have their blood spilled on the grounds of terror due to Boko Haram, the group he-Buhari openly supported under the PDP regime and the new wave of herdmens terror, a bid that has been seen as Buhari’s agenda for expansion of the Northern terrain if not to even Islamatise Nigeria. Buhari is sympathetic to both Boko Haram and the herdmen and is not fit to rule Nigeria one day longer.

Buhari himself barely lived in Nigeria. The health sector is in shambles and despite the millions of dollars budgeted for his clinic in Abuja, he prefers to waste Nigeria’s money at London hospitals. He’s such a shameless president.

Now the age of ignorance should be over. A few things need to give way in 2019.

First is the need to change the mantle of leadership. If any young person in Nigeria is still expending energy on APC or PDP, then we have a serious problem. The problem must be beyond the Stockholm syndrome. A few years ago, l actually defined the Nigerian syndrome.

You are suffering and you still want to ensure that the one who contributed to your suffering remains your boss or master. It must be a severe chronic disorder, this Nigerian syndrome.

Perhaps you are not suffering but you don’t think that Nigeria needs to be a better place than the UK or France or Canada. Then you have a serious chronic disorder too. Nigeria is richer than many countries in the world and Nigeria is supposed to be one of the best places to live. Almost 2 decades after the reemergence of civil rule, don’t you think Nigeria deserved to be among the best countries in the world?

The mantle of leadership must be taken away from both the APC and PDP. Without that we can close the chapter on the resurgence of Nigeria. With that, it is not the only antidote to our myriads of problems. It is just the first step.

Secondly, the unitary system of government must be discarded as soon as a new leadership emerges.

APC is a monumental fraud. The first item on its agenda is the restructuring of Nigeria. For the past 3 years Buhari who came to power on the back on this promise has done everything in his power to block the restructuring of Nigeria. This is the problem when you vote for a fool or an illiterate.

APC promised restructuring and the number one opponent of restructuring is Buhari. He is totally against restructuring. He is all for the Northerners taking over Nigeria through the spread of terror by his fellow herdsmen. Buhari is a huge joke and can anyone tell me why no one has been accosted or held responsible for the killings spree across Nigeria.

APC in the last 3 years had majority at the National Assembly and could have brought about re-structuring of Nigeria. But one of the consequences is that the senators may have to be sent home to their wards. You can understand the fear of restructuring Nigeria. These criminals at the National Assembly are taking home millions of dollars every month (the highest by any group of politicians in the world). They will not forgo it for the progress of Nigeria. Why then should we keep them for one day longer in 2019? Why?

This is where we are as a country. We are in need of leadership shift and change and we are in need of a workable system of government, something very similar to what the military destroyed since 1966.

Now, how on earth can we be with our senses as a people and still allow the APC and PDP to dominate our political landscape? That makes us irrational as a people. By now the politicians in the APC and PDP should be running helter skelter. They should be in fear of what would happen to them after the 2019 elections.

I heard Saraki just left the APC, there goes a man without principle jumping from one place to another and displaying the typical feature of a Nigerian politician in APC or PDP. We should make them defend their wealth in a proper court of law in 2019. All of them including Dino, Tinubu, Jonathan and Buhari!

By now we ought to have a movement of young people making it clear that come 2019 it will be a president probably under 50 years of age and a solid political plan along with it. By now it ought to be clear in Nigeria and to the rest of the world that a new wave is desired. One that will sweep away the old things once and for all and one that we usher in a stream of fresh air.

But it is not yet so in my Nigeria. In real life and on the social media, l still see a lot of young people aligning with the old generations and asking “who can do it better than Buhari?”. People say something like “if Atiku is for restructuring, he has my votes”. Really? Atiku? Did we forget the expose he gave on Obasanjo and what Obasanjo gave in return. These two should be in prison!

The Nigerian syndrome is incurable. The young people are disunited. They are divided by religion and separated along tribal lines. They are confused and selfish. These are results of more than 50 years of maladministration. Old people in Nigeria were deprived  of independent reasoning and Wole Soyinka called them the wasted generation. he is part of it, so no qualms with that definition.

One  would think that with the exposure that came with the internet and all that, that our young people understand what it meant to revolt and be unequivocal about how to change a lazy and irresponsible government.

There is no amount of the power of incumbency that can overturn the power of young people becoming resolute and united in forging a change in any country. Ask France. Ask Canada. We can do the same by just leaving alone the few hundreds politicians in APC and PDP. We can achieve a lot by leaving these greedy politicians alone with the families!!

If they see that no one is behind them, if they see that they are alone and if they get to the polling booths and find no one on their queues, how can they rig/manipulate results. The revolution ought to start now and be obvious before the end of 2018.

APC and PDP depend on young people to carry out their dirty works. What if we sensitize these young people now and make no one available for the dirty works of the APC and PDP? What if APC calls out a campaign tomorrow and only 40 people showed up?  What if PDP called out a campaign and only 50 people showed up? Then compare with the glory of a young presidential hopeful pulling 1 million supporters. The signal would be obvious and the change will be certain.

This is where we are as a country. We are at a point where we ought to for once lay down our differences as young people and make the future what we want it to be. I am sorry for Nigeria if the young people cannot reason together and take back Nigeria and build a country that they want their children to be proud of.

The time is now or never.

APC will not save or rescue Nigeria.

PDP will not save of rescue Nigeria.

Politicians moving around like normads cannot save Nigeria. Their games are up.

These two political parties are the same. The biggest evidence to this is the ease of carpet crossing. Let’s show them the door and then the prisons!

We need a new Nigeria.

We need a new leader not from APC or PDP.

Ibikunle Amosun: The Lazy Governor Of Ogun State

Another road that ought to be closed down permanently is the Agbara-Atan road. Even animals should not be transported on that road. It is that bad!

 

By Adeola Aderounmu

Governor Ibikunle Amosun must be a very lazy governor. By the time he leaves office in 2019 he will be leaving behind one of the worst roads that l have travelled in my entire life.

What kind of governor is that?

Agbara Industrial Area as the name implies is home to a lot of industries (I am wondering how many of the companies are left now) and should be a priority for any person who has some sense.

Unemployment is rife in Nigeria and one way to keep the investors and companies going is not just to provide constant power supply but to ensure that road networks are efficient.

The Agbara-Atan road ought to be closed down immediately and human beings should not be allowed to ply the road. Even animals should not be transported on that road.

I am not going to write an epistle about that road. It is a very, very bad road and l hope someone send this essay to the lazy governor. His time is running out and he may not care.

Lusada market (Agbara-Atan-Igbesa road) Are you kidding me that there is a governor in Ogun state? Is the governor normal?

Trailers on already damaged roads means more damage. When will good,durable roads come to Nigeria?

People like Ibikunle Amosun should not be allowed to participate in politics because he does not know the meaning of public service. Nonsense and ingredients!
