Don’t ask me how we think in Nigeria. I am struggling with the answer too. We may have to resurrect John Dewey-the author of the book “How We Think”.
But think about this:
A professor was asked to assist a criminal to rule Nigeria. On the night of the televised debate, Osinbajo-the professor, kept screaming “he (Buhari) doesn’t know, he doesn’t know”. Buhari does not even know the meaning of animal husbandry, amongst many other simple things. Is Nigeria not a scam? Why is everybody quiet?
The Man Who Is Responsible For Nothing
By Adeola Aderounmu
Since 2015, Nigeria has been led by the APC-Buhari mandate, probably the most useless and clueless government ever. The useless PDP reign between 1999 and 2015 now looks messianic. The present ruler of Nigeria, Buhari, is a man who is responsible for nothing!
General Buhari was helped and rigged into power largely by the help of Bola Tinubu and Olusegun Obasanjo. When Buhari had tried previously with his might, he failed woefully on at least 3 or 4 occasions. His alliance with the South-West eventually brought him back to power in 2015. His first illegal stint was through treasonable act-as a cruel, thoughtless and extreme dictator in 1983.
The 2015 arrangement and ascension to power is a very laughable one as a professor of law, one Yemi Osinbajo was made his deputy. Buhari has no standard, formal education and he forged his certificates on at least 2 occasions. Those offences made Buhari not only guilty of treasonable felony (as a coup plotter) but other criminal offences punishable by imprisonment. Invariably, a criminal is ruling Nigeria (again) since 2015.
A professor was asked to assist a criminal to rule Nigeria!!!
Don’t ask me how we think in Nigeria. I am struggling with that too. For as long as he would live, Buhari will never develop intellectual cognitivism to rule a clan, let alone a village. But he is the ruler of Nigeria. The implications are telling and would be useful for students of history and for the future of Nigeria, if she would ever emerge from this modern slavery.
It is now time to continue to write all we know about Buhari. This is important so that history is not distorted and since Nigerians have very short memories and are eager to move on no matter the problems, it is imperative that we document some issues before they are left unattended.
There is no way Buhari could have escaped this bashing because we are in the era of open network and the print media is beyond the newspapers or television stations that would be closed down if they dare to write freely.
Since 1999 when Nigeria returned to this pseudo-democracy, some of us have been here to express our views. There is no government in the world that can stop the freedom of the open press. It won’t happen now, not ever. Buhari and his handlers should just brace up because this press will be here when they are long gone (and be dust), doing what it does best.
At best, Buhari has become a complete nuisance to himself, his handlers and the country called Nigeria. In this essay, l want to describe Buhari as a man who is responsible for nothing. The examples are many, but l will pick a few.
Mrs. Salome Abuh was gruesomely murdered at her residence in Kogi State on November 16. This is a political assassination and it is logical to insinuate that political opponents masterminded the assassination. Even the robbers paraded for the crime have denied involvement. Has anyone heard a speech from Buhari on this assassination under his watch? Any word from the Kogi State governor? APC, just like the PDP is a murderous political party. No sympathy for human life and no acknowledgement of a state or nation in sorrow, no matter the evil perpetrated.
For all that has happened to Omoyele Sowore and the inconveniences his family is put through about the ugly situations, Buhari has pushed the blame to the DSS. It is as if there is a republic of the DSS operating within Nigeria the same way the Boko Haram republic is having a flow in Northern Nigeria.
Buhari is not responsible for the plight of Sowore. He is not responsible for the republic of Boko Haram in northern Nigeria. What is Buhari responsible for? What is Buhari good for? I am sorry for that Femi Adesina, the messenger of the evil regime. I have no time for him. We await his useless book after this nonsense life he is living.
Buhari’s government is not obeying court orders. Whose fault is that?
The Supreme court judges and their judgement on the electoral dispute between Atiku and Buhari is one reason I believe the law profession is fast becoming a useless one in Nigeria. I am not only bewildered by the colonial wigs those old fools have on their heads, l am also never going to recover from the shock of how judgements are bought and paid for in Nigeria.
Shall we not hold Buhari accountable for the sham and shame the judiciary has evolved to since 2015? Has anyone spoken to the Chief Justice of Nigeria in recent days. The chief Justice to be best of my knowledge as a citizen of Oduduwa land is an illiterate. That man, Tanko is dumb and does not know what he is doing. Just like Buhari, he cannot express himself or make himself comprehensible.
The invasion of the court of law by Buhari’s attack dogs’ aka DSS was the final burial of judiciary in Nigeria. Good luck to all present and future lawyers. I am wondering what the f*** purpose they serve when their profession is being rendered useless and worthless, in Nigeria.
Buhari blamed and continues to blame the PDP for all that is wrong with the Nigerian economy since 2015. My positions in 2015 when this crazy government came to power were:
From the look of things, Buhari came to power to serve his selfish interests and to advance the course of the people of northern Nigeria and their brothers from sub-Saharan Africa. He wants to bring every dick, tom and harry to Nigeria from 2020.
Really? Is Buhari normal? My answer is NO! He is not!
I am not going to proliferate my essay with all the abundant evidence to his deadly agenda. You need to get your lazy ass up and follow the changes that have taken place since Buhari became a ruler in 2015.
Buhari is not accepting the responsibility for the economic woes in Nigeria. He has no solutions, but he is holding tight to power. This is the mentality that makes Africa, the most of it anyway, a continent of interest. You see empty brains conquering their people, enslaving them and bringing them to economic ruins and mass poverty. The most amazing part is that the people sit tight and struggle.
Since many African countries were lumped together by the colonialists, the people lack the common front and effrontery to speak in unity and act for a common reason. There is no reason under the sun why a dullard, a man who is responsible for nothing to be ruling or leading the most populous Black country on earth. Buhari is still standing because of the fear of the north, and he moved all the military powers up north both physically and structurally.
Buhari would not have become anything in Oduduwa land because he has limited sense and limited mental capabilities. But in a unitary system of government which Nigeria adopted after the two useless coups of 1966 and since the end of the civil war in 1970, even a stupid person who has no sense can become your chief justice.
So, this is where Nigeria is. People are afraid to rise up because they may be arrested like Sowore, and incarcerated. Buhari has locked up people both openly and in secrets. We are back to the dark days. We never left anyway. We fell to APC and Buhari in 2015, a real con party with a tyrant at the helm.
Invariably in the end, the people get the type of rulers they deserve. There are no true leaders in Nigeria. The elderly and even the young achievers in time constitute themselves to some sort of sycophants and rulers that should be worshipped, obeyed or listened-to.
The problems of Nigeria did not start and will not end at the feet of Buhari. That much l have written about even since the days of Yar’ Adua.
It is of course evident that the unitary system of government is stupid. We are ridiculous in Nigeria because we are running a system of government that doesn’t work since 1966 and we kept at it. I have never seen anything more challenging (mentally) in my entire life. How can you be doing something wrong since 1966 and keep it going. I will never get it!
The other ridiculous thing is that the government is failing not only at the federal level, but also at the state and local levels. It is logical to conclude that these are symptoms of the unitary system. It may also be worth looking closer at this interplay. I don’t know it all.
What l know is that when you have a man who is responsible for nothing leading a useless and stupid system of government, then it is not surprising that the eureka in 2015 was the greatest scam in post-independence Nigeria. Nigeria will never make it under a unitary system of government, APC or PDP. Nigeria will never make if under a block-head who is responsible for nothing.
We can keep praying, our parents did. It seems we have handed over this line of slavery to our children too.
Happy 30th reunion to my mates at Festac Grammar School, Klass 89.
