Nigerians: We are Captives in our own country..!

By Adeola Aderounmu

Nigeria is trying to shake off the “terror-label” tagged by the US but if you ask me we have more serious issues to take care of on our home front.

I have actually written a piece (yet unposted) to challenge Barrack Obama or whoever gave the tag to Nigeria. I will not dispute the fact that Northern Nigeria is a fertile ground to would-be terrorists but the US and UK are more terrorist countries than Nigeria. I’ll come back to that in another post.

But has anyone been following the events in Nigeria and how a small group of persons have enslaved the rest of us. Mr. Yar Adua is not available and no one else will be allowed to become president.

Invariably we are being told that it is Yar Adua (dead, half dead or alive) OR no one else until 2011. So Nigeria will be without a ruler, leader, dictator or whatever until 2011 or whenever the next election will be. Goodluck Jonathan can be there as a figure head for all this clique of people care!

There was a demonstration last week demanding the end of this nonsense rulership of incapable Yar Adua but if you ask me I think the situation demands a daily and sustained demonstration until the objective of rally is achieved-that is the supremacy of the constitution which has been thrown away for over 53 days.

In one of my post I have described the Nigeria Judiciary as a citadel of corrupt minds. Yes it is! Imagine the judgements and pronouncements that were made this week. The Nigerian Judiciary is a rotten and useless branch of government. One judge wakes up one morning and collects millions of dollars as bribe and tells us afterwards that there is no power vacuum in Nigeria. Only a fool can say that!

My frustration for Nigeria has increased and my sadness knows no bound. When people come to my blog and tell me bullshit about what I write about Nigeria, I get more upset even as I approved their comments. Only a fool or an idiot will be happy with the sad situation in Nigeria. Another fool will expect the rest of us to point out the good things in Nigeria while neglecting the fundamental issues that affect more than 70m Nigerians.

Mr. Aondoakaa that shameless Attorney General is doing all he can to make a fool out of the rest of us. This won’t last long. People like him should remember war criminals. They always pay for their crimes. One day those who are committing these despicable acts will be brought to judgement. The arm of the law is surely short in Nigeria but still I know it will catch up with his likes.

Sometimes I don’t find the words to express my anger and frustrations. We have a sick ruler. He is incapable. Our lives are in coma the same time as his. What is wrong to allow the constitution to takes its course. Goodluck Jonathan is a vice president. He should be allowed to take over so that governance can continue.

However these greedy people who have captured the rest of us as slaves will not allow our lives to go on. They will keep us waiting as they continue to steal, loot and destroy what is left of the weak foundations of our sick democracy.

I am getting tired. When will madness stops in Nigeria seat of power?
