Nigeria @ 57, Lying Prostrate!

Nigeria @ 57, A Country Lying Prostrate!

By A Very Angry Adeola

My reactions to the independent anniversary celebration in Nigeria since the past 11 years when l started blogging is the same. Nigeria is a huge joke nowadays.

Recently a friend send me a text message and said that l have been quiet. Not really, 11 years of blogging on related topics cannot be silence. If you miss me on my facebook or on the Nigeria Village Square, go to my blog and read what l have written. They are as relevant today as they were yesterday.

Nigeria is ruled by criminals and so nothing has changed.

Anybody celebrating Nigeria’s 57 years as an independent country is most definitely a fool. It could also be all the criminals assembled in the APC and PDP congratulating one another for their conquest of Nigeria.

You really have to be sick to celebrate failure, backwardness, poverty, lack of vision, lack of progress and many other nonsense and rubbish. You need to be sick to celebrate a country where the president goes abroad to receive medical treatment. A country where the educationals system is in shatters. A country where there is no electricity and a governor is donating generators to the Police. You need a psycho check up if you are the celebrant!

Shamefully enough, a little over 2 years ago, all of us bought the biggest scam in Sub-tropical Africa. We subscribed to the change slogan of the APC. The PDP could not buy the scam because paradoxically it is the same as the APC. They probably went behind the scene to laugh at us and merry with theoir common friends, the criminal politicians.

For the past 2 years, far worse than the last 55 years before it, Nigeria is ruled by clueless and insane criminals. They keep swapping between APC and PDP and personally l don’t even know which party is which anymore.

Their sole aim remains self-enrichment. For all the shouts and pleas, the National Assembly continue to cart home billions of naira every month as salaries and remunerations. Two years after the change slogan, they status quo remain the same.

Several former governors continue to loot the states through the criminally induced pensions they granted themselves. The change slogan does not mean that they have to change their looting ways. Some of them are even looting at the National Assembly as senators. What kind of stupid independence are we celebrating when criminals are ruling and asking us to believe in Nigeria.

Dogaro patched the budget and remains a good friend of the president who till date did not condemn the looting through the budget. So there was nothing the APC was willing to change.  Saraki has uncountable criminal charges on his head and remains the senate president. You have to be mad to celebrate with these types of criminals when you should be in organised units asking them to vacate their seats or simply make the country ungovernable for them.

Invariably in all aspects of the Nigerian life, the status quo of corruption, ineptitude, political madness and haphazard socio-economic disorder remain the order of the day. For several months of the past 2 years, Nigerian was on auto-pilot as the incapacitated, mentally and physically unsuitable president continue to hinge to power at the detriment of the rest, more than 150 million mumus.

This is where Nigeria is, as a country, held to ransom by the elites who are stealing daily and misguiding the rest like mumus to a destination that is unknown.

In recent weeks, people who have raided and raped the country including one name Atiku are claiming to be apostles of restructure. It is obvious that some strategists sold him this concept as it was becoming popular in all political discussions, so he could use it as a platform to become the president of Nigeria. I curse the day a known criminal like Atiku becomes the president of Nigeria. The people who will make thay happen are cursed for lives, and they will suffer for it like we are all suffering for the PDP APC era.

If there is one way forward for Nigeria, it is the counting of criminals and their removal from all facets of the Nigerian life. But this is tough as criminality and corruption have become embedded in the souls of many.

Restruture is even become obsolete and almost dead before arrival.

The nations within Nigeria now want out. But it is not as if these nations will be ruled by saints. What if the criminals in government today eventually become the criminals in the various regions? Nigeria is not an ordinary country.

There is a curse hanging in the air on Nigeria.

The fact that the judiciary is not working is a very big mess for Nigeria. The politicians don’t resign out of shame and they always get away from being punished or their cases are postponed for life or simply thrown out. BUT WE KNOW THAT THEY ARE THIEVES AND CRIMINALS. THE LAWS AGAINST CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA ARE A BIG JOKE. THE LAW SYSTEM IS CRIPPLED!!!

I cannot finish my post today without talking about the optimists. There is a certain group of people in Nigeria, once they have figured out to make their own wealth from the system, then the country is fine and we should stop complaining. Crazy, selfish souls!

Government is there to ensure that there is fair, level field for everyone to reach their goals. In Nigeria, the level fields have been abolished and inequality is the norm. Education is almost abolished as the elites continue to send their children abroad. Health care is dead as even the president does not live in Nigeria because of ill-health. What then are we talking about and where do we want to start from?

Sometimes, some people are like, som what are the solutions? Really? Come back and ask me again the solution to problems when criminals are ruling in all the government houses across Nigeria. What a joke?

The Nigerian Military Vs The Rest Of Us In A Pseudo-democracy

The Nigerian Military Vs The Rest Of Us In A Pseudo-democracy

By Adeola Aderounmu (Today is 11 years l have been on this BLOG, THY GLORY O’NIGERIA..!)

1489988681500.jpg

(A recent tv-program claiming that there is starvation in parts of Africa including Nigeria. This is the type of shame that Nigerian politicians bring to their families, fathers and mothers and the rest of us. How can a country so blessed be populated by starving children and jobless people?)

 

There are pockets of problems in Nigeria. The most visible in recents days is ongoing in the Eastern part of Nigeria as the Nigerian Military started show of might in some parts of Nigeria.

According to the military, these exercises are staged in a number of geographical locations in Nigeria. There is no external aggression against Nigeria so it suits the Military to oppress the civilians/citizens.

Sadly the exercise in the East is causing commotions and deaths because of the clashes between the Nigerian military and the members of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB).

There have been a lot of arguments back and forth on who is to blame for the deaths and clashes. One person that l know stated that two wrongs does not make a right. Oh well, two shades of madness does not make a sense to me as well.

If your enemy is planning to roast you, you do not rub palm oil on your body and then start dancing near the fire (or python). At the same time, the one who does not let a sleeping dog lie would be bitten and may die of rabies.

In the year 2017, there are so many options open to agitations bothering on secession and independence. In the 1990s we saw the effect of war and stupidity as Bosnia and other nation went up in flames because people refused to talk. Way back in 1967 Nigeria herself went up in flames and the rest is history. How easily can history repeat itselt? Too easy as humans never learned. Humans are passionately foolish.

For BIAFRA, my opinion is that IPOB and MASSOB need to find a common ground as a starting point.

For as long as IPOB and MASSOB have differing views on how to achieve the BIAFRA AGENDA, the Igbo people are just deceiving themselves. Secondly, and after they have achieved a common front, they now need to get the support of the generality of the Igbo people including their politicians at home and at Abuja.

In order to be qualified for REFERENDUM, the Igbo Nation, as in all of Eastern Nigerian must be united in seeking the referendum in which those in support and those against BIAFRA can make their votes count. In asking for a referendum, it does not mean that all Igbo people are in support of BIAFRA, it only means that they will have a chance to test the popularity of the opinion.

A Referendum will not be achieved by violence and hate speech for which Nnamdi Kanu is a champion, sadly. A referendum will never be achieved as long as Igbo Ministers and Igbo politicians in Abuja are rubbing minds and asses with the rest of the country. It is not as if they need to come home to settle to Biafra, but their inputs are needed in achieving and testing the referendum. A majority outcome is the future of the Igbo Union.

Not even getting to that point makes a useless mess of the agitation of either IPOB or MASSOB. A war will consume them like a thuderous fire no matter the external or internal support. IPOB must understand the dictates of war. It is beyond street violence as the Nigerian Military as shown by their tiny operation in the East in recent days.

True it appears the Nigerian Military is controlled by the North. True, it appears that Buhari is a sectional ruler and a ruthless, thoughtless dictator… THEREFORE not playing by the rules of achieving a referedum makes it easy for him as a ruthless ruler to excercise military might.

To confront any ruler or government in Nigeria, any region or section that is willing to secede must first follow the books. To go to war with Nigeria means that the government of Nigeria have refused to listen to the voice of reason after every requirement for referendum or eventual secession have been achived. It would then be logical to accuse the Nigerian government of genocide or tribal killings (for which the military is already an expert, so don’t get me wrong). I am not in support of any military action or excercise in any zone in Nigeria. It is absolute nonsense and a provocative act.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. In my opinion a referendum is the way forward for the BIAFRAN AGENDA. It will be a very, very long and unwindy road to get to the point of a referendum.

Violence, war and forming local militias is not the way. History shows us that lives will be lost, the innocent will be massacred and the purpose will never be achieved. Only the manufacturers of weapons will smile to the banks.

So again, let IPOB or/and MASSOB come to the table and forge a way forward. Greed and thirst for power may eventually suffocate both groups. Get your people together, not necessarily because you think you are right to form BIAFRA but to vote against or for your call for the republic of BIAFRA.

Let everyone be prepared to accept the result of the referendum and let’s see where we go from there. Remember that as long as your Abuja politicians and state governors are singing a different tunes, then there will be no referendum, talk less of a BIAFRA that many people around the world belived died in 1970.

I am not an expert on this issue, l am just a blogger offering my opinion because l would hate to see a people suffer genocide in the hands of the one-sided Nigerian military.

However l am super convinced that if it were to be a country-wide revolution where all the people in the country (more than 150 m) pour to the streets at the same time for several days or weeks, the government will be totally crippled and changes including the emergence of new nations or the re-establishment of the old ones will emerge.

I amd also thinking about what will become of the IBADAN DECLARATION in the coming days. I wonder if it was an empty show where some people are also seeking for attention.

I am thinking loud about the major problems in Nigeria, a country so blessed yet so deprieved because of the greed of a few people who sadly are still in power no matter the political affiliation.

I am thnking about: IPOB, MASSOB, ODUDUWA REPUBLIC, AREWA YOUTH, MIDDLE BELT REGION, MEND, HERDSMEN AND BOKO HARAM.

There is an urgent need for a political solution. With or without the IPOB uprisings, this country cannot hold for too much longer. We postpone the major evil days while the people experience taste of evil daily. This is not sustainable.

These are just my my unedited random thoughts in these days of uncertainty, lies, power vacuum and a propaganda machine in the hands of a very wicked style of government. The Buhari led APC government now ranks among the most useless government in Nigeria. It is the most hypocritical in the history of Africa. It is basically at par with the Jonathan government with regards to the number of criminals in its ranks from the president to the senate leader to the governors and the local government. It’s the same old sh*t.

Toying with this type of heartless criminals the way IPOB is doing is mainly suicide. There must be a way round…

 

I Can’t Believe The (Useless) Clamour For Atiku

By Adeola Aderounmu

20151101_155430-3

There are so many updates on Nigeria and for now my blog is the only place l post my views. The Nigerian Village Square would have to wait for now.

There is a situation bordering on the call or support for Mr. Atiku, a former Nigerian vice president, as a candidate for the position of the president in 2019.

This call or support is wicked, stupid, useless and worth the highest condemnation.

Atiku is not different from all the multitudes of criminals running Nigeria today at the local, state and federal levels. He is one of them. Nigeria is not making progress because of the criminals in and out of power. We are not moving forward for many other reasons including running a useless form of unitary government.

What is the essence of bringing one of the criminals in again when we are still looking for the mechanism to clean the system?

If you really want to know my case against Atiku, you won’t find all of it in this piece which is just my state of mind. You will have to do a long browse online, on this blog or on the Nigerian Village Square.

Bottom line, Nigeria and Nigerians don’t need the re-adoption of a criminal to lead the country.

Please let ATIKU go and rest and continue to enjoy the loot from the custom, or from Adamawa or even from his position as the former VP.

Right now, we are faced with a more decisive approach to the future. We are trying to analyse what is best for the country: Restructuring, Regional government or even outright dissolution of the entity called Nigeria. That is where we are now…

We will return to the criminals when the time is right…they will be called to account for every 1 Naira they own in their respective constituencies.. Forget the useless charade of the EFCC.
