The days gone by

by Adeola Aderounmu

I have missed blogging. I was busy with my books and then I had a visitor from another country. But now I have a little time to review some major things that I had in mind.

Yar adua’s travel

Umaru Yar Adua went to Saudi Arabia again because he hasn’t found the reasons to build a state of the art hospital in Nigeria 10 years after occupying positions of power. First he wasted 8 years as a governor and for the past 2 years he has wasted everyone’s time as the fake president of Nigeria. Yar adua remains a waste of space and time.

The questions remain: why should the ruler of Nigeria travel to Saudi Arabia for treatment?

Why can’t he build a good hospital for himself in Nigeria or why didn’t he do this as the governor of Katsina State?

Those who are ignorant of Nigeria can easily pop-up the race-intelligence question. If the ruler of a country is used to ascertain the intelligence of the other people then Nigerians are in real trouble. Seriously is it not stupidity that such a man cannot arrange his priorities and ensure that modern hospitals are built for Nigerians including himself?

If the ruler of Nigeria goes abroad for treatment, where should the citizens go?

Nigerian Guardian reporter killed
Nigerian Guardian reporter/journalist Mr. Ohu was gunned down in his home early Sunday morning. That was on the 20th of September 2009. May his soul rest in peace. Anyone expecting that his killers will be found should wake up from his or her nightmare. Nigerian Police do not have the resources to unravel any murder. Check the records and you will not find any solved murder case. The former attorney general Mr. Bola Ige was killed and no one was held accountable. Once again the question of security of life and property is brought to the fore by this ugly incident. Why would anyone assassinate a journalist? Isn’t this an assault on freedom of speech?

Total Strike in Nigerian schools
All public schools in Nigeria are now under lock and keys. Teachers and lecturers are on strike. Here we are in 2009 Nigeria, education finally grounded to zero. Meanwhile the children of the rich are in private schools in Nigeria or they are attending schools in Europe and America.

The fake Minister of education Mr Egwu has not even resigned. Does anyone resign in Nigeria in the face of failure? Never! Instead these nonentities are elevated even as they continue to steal and loot.

Nigeria is now 49 years. Where do we go from here? This country is failing…from where cometh our help? Thy Glory O’ Nigeria is slain upon the high places!
