Thy Glory O’ Nigeria: 2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 61,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

My Message to Southern Nigerians in 2012: Separate Now or Continue to Face Genocide

By Adeola Aderounmu

Is BOKO HARAM on the Way to Re-colonizing Nigeria

I don’t know why people think that Nigeria needs more bloodshed to become several divided countries. More than a million lives have been shed already. In the 1967-1970 civil war, the bloodshed has already taken place.

Since 1999 when the useless and stupid PDP party took over Nigeria several thousands of Nigerians have died. Is that not enough bloodshed?

The terrorist organization known as Boko Haram has taken over the whole of Nigeria. Several churches will not have their usual watchnight services to usher in the New Year. The churches are closed across Nigeria because of the fear of Boko Haram. Some people call them Boko Rams.

Boko Haram has promised to kill more innocent Nigerians. They are not joking. This is possible because in Nigeria the politicians are crooks, fools and total idiots. The security and intelligence mechanism of the Nigerian government is too weak and compromised. It exists only on paper as everybody is waiting for somebody to do the right thing.

If I was the governor of Lagos State for example, I would probably have annexed the whole of Western Nigeria and declare the Republic of Oduduwa. In that way any bomb blast by Boko Haram would be met by full scale war. No organization of group of person has the monopoly of violence (RIP Ojukwu).

In several unreported incidents Hausa-Fulani groups have invaded several churches in Abuja and its environs carting away valuable properties from individuals. They steal mobile phones, computers and so on. When possible they shoot or bomb the worshippers like they did on Christmas day.
Yet Nigerians want to remain one country! Please give me a break.

If the Southerners don’t know it, the Northerners have declared a war and their targets are the Southerners. The earlier they divide from the Northerners the better for the Southerners.
Remaining as one country is the only remaining reason why BOKO HARAM is getting away with the genocide and war crimes that they have committed so far. Once the declarations of independences by the different countries/ nations within Nigeria are made, further attacks on southerners will be tantamount to war.

Which is better? To declare independence away from Nigeria or to suffer extermination in the hands of Boko Haram? The people of Southern Nigeria including the Western and Eastern States should know that so far they have refused to protect their own people the way the Northerners have protected their own. Genocide is in progress and our hands are folded! Why, o why?

As far as Boko Haram is concern, they have the backing and support of the Emirs, the Sultans and all the politicians and military from the North. No well-meaning politician from the North has condemned Boko Haram. They have all being silent. Even Jubril Aminu has openly supported Boko Haram when he said in other words that Christians should get out of the North.

The likes of Atiku and Babangida promised Jonathan hell but the hell has been brought on all Southerners.

Some Northern rulers are neither here nor there. It will be foolishness on the part of the Southerners to think that Boko Haram is acting alone. This is a Northern Nigerian agenda and they are not hiding their missions and targets.

The North of Nigeria wants to enslave and colonise the South, so far they have succeeded because Goodluck Jonathan is like a puppet and has no clue about what he is doing. Jonathan is the worst president that ever walked the face of Africa.

The different regions within Nigeria must organize themselves.

For once Nigerians should forget about Jonathan and his bunch of foolish cabinet, mumu advisers and thoughtless cheerleaders.

If the South does not wake up to realize the real threat from Boko Haram which is to colonise Southern Nigeria it will be too late a few months from now. At that time we will all be forced into Islam and the useless politicians and their families will be 10000 miles away from Nigeria. Many of their children and relations have fled already.

In recent history, in 1993, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2011 Nigerians wasted all the opportunities to liberate themselves. The liberation must be total and to allow the North of Nigeria to colonize and islamatise the south is not part of the dream of liberation.

Every man or woman should be free to practice whatever religion he or she prefers or to be religion-free.

No matter where the support of Boko Haram comes from it must be crushed at all / any cost and this is the legacy that the people of Southern Nigeria owe their unborn generations. The South-south, South-west and South-east have a moral obligation to ensure that their children are not born as slaves or treated as one. Your children must not live under the whips of terrorists.

If they do, your existence is a disgrace to humanity.

The Nigerian FaceBook Suicide

BY Adeola Aderounmu

Diano Ovie Richy killed himself on Christmas day 2011. According to him, his death was his Christmas gift for his friends and family.


Ovie Richy

It is tragic because for 2 days he mentioned about killing himself but his friends didn’t react. They probably thought he was joking. It is not common to hear about suicides in Nigeria.

The truth is that several Nigerians commit suicide annually but there are no documents or statistic to show the real figure.

If Nigeria had a date base for people taking their lives annually maybe it would have been obvious to Ovie’s friends that his threat was real. It was indeed.

The young man killed himself and he was buried the same day.
He was frustrated with life. He was probably depressed too. He didn’t find a way forward and he gave up.

Many Nigerians think this is unusual, again because we have no statistic to back up the rising cases of suicide in Nigeria.

The situation in Nigeria is depressing, worrying and hope-sapping.
Ovie complained about incessant armed robbery in Warri, lack of job and not making a head way with his education. He was a young man, funny, and full of life. But he was empty inside.

One thing Ovie wanted us do is to care more about our neighbours and friends, to show them that we care and to help them in times of need. The government of Nigeria is the prime suspect in the death of this young man and that of thousands of other who have died due to preventable reasons.

Maybe if this guy had a social security, maybe the story would have been different. Just maybe.

Nigeria has one of the highest global unemployment rate and a system of government where those in power are getting richer and more corrupt as the ordinary citizens continue to sink more into everlasting poverty.

In 2012 Nigerians will find life more difficult as the cost of everything will hit the roof when the fuel subsidy is removed.

Terrorism will increase and the expected fragmentation of Nigeria may begin.

Ovie could not imagine the thoughts of all these things and ha gave up.

He is dead now, may his worried soul find peace.
