A Stale Demo-Crazy

The hopes that some Nigerians are having already for 2023 were the same hopes I had in 1979 when l (Adeola) started to follow Nigerian politics (and l memorized the names of several top politicians that l still remember till date!).

Do the math. You are living in a fool’s paradise.

A Stale Demo-crazy

By Adeola Aderounmu

In a very uncharacteristic manner, l did not give it a thought to write an essay that tallies with the Nigerian independence anniversary on October the 1st.

20191005_0049402295249879780213129.jpg

It is also remarkable that l did not even repost my previous thoughts on the day (October 1st) on my blog. It is a sign of the times. My thoughts are divided about the country called Nigeria and l have described celebrations of October 1st as a sheer waste of time and money year after year.

I thought about the foolish people ruling Nigeria and their own reflections to the world that they are doing a great job. Then I think about the reality that Nigeria is one of the worst places to live on planet earth. There are arguments that this is a fallacy. It is easy to dismiss the terrible situation in Nigeria if you find yourself on the same side as the lucky bastards-the ones who think that having wealth or advantages that are not open or available to everyone is the purpose of life.

I think about all the problems facing Nigeria and how complicated they have become. I think about the people on whose behalf we have been writing for decades but who it seemed have lost touch with human dignity and the meaning of human existence; how almost impossible it has become to redeem the damaged minds and psyche of the “Nigerian”.

I think about how the Nigerian looked at you and view your opinions of the Nigerian state against his/her own personal judgements of “how things should work” or “so you think you know better”.

As a blogger and writer of almost 20 years’ experience, you know you cannot continue to argue with people or persons who actually think that Nigeria has a “political class” or that there is a future/hope based on the two major useless political groups in Nigeria. It is hopeless, and it is an inexplicable human “stupidity” not to start looking at the options that lie beyond the status quo in Nigeria.

Don’t be alarmed by my choice of words. I crossed the line of “civil essayist” a long time ago. Nigeria crossed the line from “civil” to “anarchy” many years before l lost my patience for soothing choice of words.

In her present state, Nigeria is home to the accumulation of the poorest people in the world staying afloat the world’s richest gifts of nature. If that doesn’t strike you as an anomaly, irony and oxymoron combined, l wonder what will.

To remain on the same side of any of the 2 major political party in Nigeria, APC or PDP revealed to me that Nigeria is irredeemable. On this blog, l have shown that there is no difference between the two. Both are criminal organisations, highly sophisticated in the perpetration of evil and poverty, and extremely interchangeable groups. I can be APC today and PDP tomorrow and vice versa.

In her present state, Nigeria is home to the accumulation/aggregation of the poorest people in the world staying afloat the world’s richest gifts of nature.

Nigeria is not a country in the true sense of it. It remains a geographical area in captivity. That is why poor people and slaves are concentrated in different regions with splashes of some of the world’s richest people who succeeded in capitalizing on a system that thrives on injustice and the growing stupidity of a “captured populace” that thinks that solutions to human problems are attached to divinity or unseen spiritual forces especially those forced on them when the slavery was perpetrated by foreigners. Today the slavery is masterminded by the elites/political class.

Nigeria is a special case of the collapse of humanity and the total and shocking absence of “simple” common sense. Again, foolish people continue to ask social critics for the solutions to Nigeria’s problems. In my case, l now suggests that ‘question askers” should read my blog from the beginning. They will probably find the answer somewhere.

The most radical solutions to Nigeria’s problems are the outright revolt of the people and the mass prosecution/elimination of the criminals called politicians. Such a bold move will change the landscape of the country forever. But that solution will not be sought because of the lessons of the civil war and the people have no leaders anymore. Nigeria is primarily headless and aimless.

The probable re-evolution of independent states within Nigeria is a risk worth taking because Nigeria in any case will never work based on the useless unitary system of government.

But the independent states will not be occupied by aliens if they emerged.

How will the governance of such states or republics be different from the useless governance that dominated Nigeria since the collapse of regional government? No one knows the answer to this question. Yet it remains a more popular option today because of the absolute stupidities seen in government especially since 1999 when physical hell escalated in Nigeria first through the PDP and now the APC.

Nigeria’s democracy is stale, permanently. It is managed by idiots and people without senses. But it is an indication of a systemic collapse. How can a country with glorious academics and citizens who are very efficient around the world be governed at home by complete nonentities? You can ask many other shocking questions about Nigeria and Nigerians who would rather spend their free time on useless tv shows rather than their real freedom fights.

What we know is that the collapse of the regional government automatically stemmed progress across the country. 53 years ago, Nigeria started the journey down the road to perdition when regional government was suspended. Since then, the citizens have been in coma and lacked the balls to re-demand for their lost paradise. For 53 years, unitary system of government has failed Nigerians regardless of who the ruler or dictator was/is.

How can you do something the same way and expect a different result is a globally known question/phrase. The hope that some Nigerians are having already for 2023 was the same hope I had in 1979 when l started to follow Nigerian politics (when l memorized the names of several politicians that l still remember till date!).

Do the math. You are living in a fool’s paradise.

Nigeria is a special case of the collapse of humanity and the total and shocking absence of “simple” common sense.

Sowore’s Kidnap By Buhari’s DSS: Shame On Nigeria/Nigerians, Shame To The World

I cannot deny Sowore.

We have been in the same room and space on a number of occasions, all at the University of Lagos. We served the University of Lagos Students’ Union at about the same time. I was the president of my department under the Faculty of Science and Sowore was the overall Students’ Union president.

Buhari is running a government that favours terrorists, one that incapacitate regular citizens with voices on their rights and demand for decent lives.

No matter what you think about Sowore, he does not deserve to be a prisoner under this regime that enjoy handshakes with terrorists in Northern Nigeria”.

Sowore’s Kidnap By Buhari’s DSS: Shame On Nigeria/Nigerians, Shame To The World

I cannot deny Sowore. We are not personal friends, but we have been in the same room and space on a number of occasions, all at the University of Lagos. We served the University of Lagos Students’ Union at about the same time. I was the president of my department under the Faculty of Science and Sowore was the the overall Students’ Union president.

This will not be an epistle for we all know Sowore, his Sahara Reporters (saharareporters.com) and his AAC which some judases may have stolen from him.

Before the election, l wanted to actually write about Malcolm Fabiyi because in all honesty, the brains behind Sowore are even bigger than Sowore. Of course, the AAC did not get far, for that is the story of Nigeria. Late Gani Fawehinmi did not even get as far as AAC.

If Nigerian journalists were smart, they would have known that AAC (minus the judases) is the party with the highest intelligent quotient among all the political parties. They saw Sowore, whom they hate, but did not look behind him to see where all his facts and confidence came from. Therefore l say to you lazy Nigerian journalists, look today beyond Sowore. Start from Malcolm Fabiyi and tell the world what you missed.

screenshot_20190901-200441_instagram8831029047228566699.jpg

I said l won’t write an epistle and the purpose of my essay is not to paint AAC as the messiah of Nigerian politics but definitely AAC is not a party of murderers and terrorists like the APC and the PDP before it. Someone said that Nigerian will fight you or even kill you if you try to save them from their miseries. There is no greater truth in that expired Niger Area than that.

The incarceration of Omoyele Sowore is not just a shame to Nigeria/Nigerians, it is a shame to the whole world. An innocent man was kidnapped by the useless government of Mallan Buhari and we turned away as if nothing happened. In Nigeria, we have become used to laughing as people who are under oppression through imprisonment and other forms of state sponsored criminality.

Some people think that Seun Kuti was exaggerating when he called Nigeria a concentration camp. For nearly 2 decades l have admitted that we live as slaves in Nigeria. I wish that all Nigerians living in Nigeria can see a parallel normal country from above the sky. Perhaps, the required light that they need to fight their own revolution would emerge.

Buhari is running a government that favours terrorists and incapacitate regular citizens with voices on their rights and demand for decent lives. What we see everyday is a people who have come to accept the nonsense and rubbish that APC present on a daily basis. A people who stood their ground and opposed Jonathan’s PDP are now living in harmony with the worst form of terrorism on planet earth under APC.

Buhari’s government does not deserve another 24 hours after you read this piece. I don’t know if l have been clear about my position before but l want to be now. There is nothing more important to me in my life than a struggle that will eliminate the types of politics that both APC and PDP are playing.

There is nothing more urgent to Nigeria now than the demolition of the useless unitary system of government that has turned Nigerians to things that are so shameless to describe at home and abroad.

To be clear, that we all became quiet the moment Sowore was kidnapped by the Buhari led government is a shame on all of us. No matter what you think about Sowore, no matter what l think about him, he had a choice of living in any of the developed countries in the world. Living in these countries is already like living in paradise that many of you want to achieve through your religions.

You don’t have to like or hate Sowore to know (if you have sense) that his kidnap was unlawful and his present predicament is unwarranted. Fears are now being  raised that Sowore may be eliminated like Ken Saro Wiwa.

I have a lot of things to say. I have a lot of things to write about and l have a lot of things to do. But when l read my blog, l realized l have said it all. The only misjudgement l can admit was that l wrote many times that 1999-2015 would be the worst years of our lives. I was so f***ing wrong.

In Buhari and Osinbajo, we got to a bottom no other country in the world ever got to before the people arrested and killed all their oppressors. Go and read history and see how developed countries saved themselves from oppressions to attain glory that Nigerians are dying across the deserts and in the Mediterranean to experience.

Finally on this random mix, it is equally a shame on Donald Trump not to ask for the release of Sowore from the dungeons of the lifeless one, terrorist Buhari. It is a shame on his friend in the United Kingdom Boris Johnson to keep quiet on the unlawful clampdown of human right activists in Nigeria. It is a shame to the European Union. I cannot even mention the African Union because it doesn’t look like it exists and the Unions in West Africa. They are like rubber stamps for terror-inclined tyrants like Buhari.

No matter what you think about Sowore, he does not deserve to be a prisoner under this regime that enjoy handshakes with terrorists in Northern Nigeria.

My Random Reflections @ 47. Niger-Area: An Expired British Colony.

As you read my reflections, let me tell you what will happen before you get to the last sentence. A group of terrorists called herdsmen will kidnap a man/woman probably in western Nigeria and demand for a huge ransom. Another group of terrorists, also called herdsmen will move their cattle into another man’s land probably in Eastern Nigeria or in Edo state and destroy the farmland. They will never be apprehended, and they will never be prosecuted.

 

My Random Reflections @ 47. Niger-Area: An Expired British Colony.

By Adeola Aderounmu

 

img_20190303_133811_210127886083964445314.jpg

This should be my 12th annual random reflections. I wrote the first edition of this series when l turned 36. I celebrate my earth day on July the 12th. Let’s see how long Olodumare carries me for.

There is so much to write about this year as in the previous years. This sounds a bit contradictory considering that l published an article on July 13, 2007 titled: Nigeria, what more to write? The article is online at the Nigerian Village Square (NVS).

Despite the fact that there is so much to write about, it would also be impossible to highlight everything in my random reflections. Nigeria, the country is overstretched and Nigerians, the people-at least 100m of them-are broken physically and psychologically.

The country Nigeria as it were today, or as defined by the colonial thugs who merged non-similar, non-familiar entities until it formed the Niger-area colony, has outlived its usefulness to the citizens/indigenes. It is clear that Nigeria is no longer functioning as a country and all the fears genuine writers and real social commentators expressed especially in the last 2-3 decades have matured and overtaken us. Niger-area is likely living on borrowed times.

As writers, we yelled! We screamed! We warned! We suggested, we gave advice. We proffered solutions, we wrote volumes upon volumes of articles. We gave our time, our energy, our resourceful thinking and many gave their lives. We are living and carrying on with heavy hearts after the demise of our beloved brother and crusader Pius Adesanmi. In him, we lost one of Africa’s most illustrious sons. In his honor and for the sake of the unborn generations we must carry on and be ready to give our lives too.

All we did in the last 2 decades fell on wrong ears. As you read my reflections, let me tell you some of the things that will happen before you get to the last sentence. A group of terrorists called herdsmen will kidnap a man/woman probably in western Nigeria and demand for a huge ransom. Another group of terrorists, also called herdsmen will move their cattle into another man’s land probably in Eastern Nigeria or in Edo state and destroy the farmland. They will never be apprehended, and they will never be prosecuted.

Many travelers will cancel their road trips from Kaduna to Abuja and from Benin to Lagos because of terrorists called bandits. Some terrorists called bandits will kill a few dozen men, women and children, probably in southern parts of Kaduna State. The terror attack will not make the mainstream news and the terrorists will chase away the natives forever.

Boko Haram may decide to expand their 15% ownership of Borno to 30% and overrun another Nigerian army barracks as they always do.

Also, before you finish reading my random reflections, a few other despicable things would occur elsewhere on the expired British colony called Niger-area. For example, a handful of lazy young men in Western Nigeria would have killed a couple of girls for rituals and some would have stolen some underwear for the same purpose. A number of lazy, disoriented people would be at Lagos lsland or seek out a fake mad man asking for where/how to buy human body parts.

Some psycho politicians and politicians to be will be at a shrine, not to worship their ancestors as they should, but to solicit for supernatural powers that would blindfold the people and bring them ill-gotten wealth. Even some pastors to be are looking for human sacrifices to bury at the foundation of their churches.

I can tell you a lot more things that would happen in advance in Niger-area. The kind of things you go to night vigils in churches and mosques to listen to. Road accidents, preventable diseases and inexplicable illnesses will claim thousands of lives in the next 24 hours and more than 90% of them will not make the news.

You can’t stop these predictions because Lagos roads for example, are the worst roads in the world and millions of people in Nigeria have drivers’ licenses without learning how to drive. Some cannot read and some have bad sights. Many have cars/vehicles without brakes. The public hospitals are ill-equipped and not every sick person can afford treatment.  So these things will happen, as usual in a failed system, the Niger-area.

Still, I can predict that fuel tankers will explode, there will be boat mishaps and there will be flood in Lagos disrupting residential and business areas. The flood in Jos is not receiving any attention and efforts will never be made to prevent a repeat.

I can tell you that it is not only the herdsmen that are problems in Edo. That state is ravaged by cultists and the young men are fast disappearing so much that even those s/elected into the political positions in the state are still in hiding, afraid to resume offices. The states in Nigeria are not viable, many of them were DOA.

Should l continue to tell you the one million reasons why Niger-area is an expired colony?

We are totally lost as a group of diverse people. Our focuses are on the wrong things and distraction is our common middle name. We are all about “self/me” because we lost the plot and some of us lost our minds. Our brains, and subsequently our reasonings were sort of destructively infected by the way the government was/is managed. The crudest survival of the fittest was re-introduced to us after the exit of the colonial thugs in 1960.

We entered a self-destruct mode, something l had earlier described as a form of human necrosis in an article many years ago.

Whilst all these mayhem and elements of civil war are going on, the criminal politicians continue to sign cheques and award one another salaries that are the highest in the world. You won’t find criminals worse than these gangs in Nigeria on planet earth.

One of them will be arguing with the others on why he has the right to beat women in a sex toy shop whereas he and the others like him should be tied in chains in a psychiatric ward for serious evaluations and eventual medication for the rest of their lives. What happened to “aro” and “yaba left”?

The ruler of the pack whom they call Buhari has lost touch with reality and suffers permanent dementia. The rest of us will suffer dementia also to varying degrees as we age or near death, so it is not a personal illness of Mujahedeen Buhari.

To him, West Germany still exists and Ambode was a former governor of Edo state. In fact, he handed over the presidential ticket to another man at a recent rally. All the traits that should earn Buhari a disqualification elevated him as typical of Niger-area, an expired British colony. Buhari belongs to the archive but now he may face the war crime tribunal for all the crimes and killings under his watch. He should.

Boko Haram may decide to expand their 15% ownership of Borno to 30% and overrun another army barracks as they always do. 

Still, Nigerians are following a man whose only consciousness is about the lives of cows and the expansion of the Fulanis from neighboring West African countries to the shores of Lagos lagoon, a sort of jihad.

All our warnings about the useless unitary system that continue to produce extremely useless rulers from APC and PDP are still falling on deaf ears. Some of us continue to argue that we must depart from this useless unitary system of government or the road to perdition is guaranteed for the next generation too.

One of the major reasons Western Nigeria fell behind countries like the France and the UK in the race for development was as a result of the eradication of the Western Region and the senseless introduction of the unitary government following the murderous coup of January 1966 and counter murderous coup of July 1966. The fallouts and the other reasons can be debated.

Why are we shy of the facts that led to the civil war and the gradual de-civilization of the prosperous regions within Niger-area?

For, no political system in the world will be rid of corruption and greedy politicians. It is the reason for the law and the judicial systems as checks everywhere in the world. When Nigerian politicians became corrupt and greedy under the regional system in the 60s, performances still outweighed their greediness because no region wanted to be behind in the development race.

Indeed, it was the appropriate democratic institutions regulating the law, the police, the judiciary and indeed the people that needed to act democratically. Nigeria was destroyed forever by the lucky bastards in khaki!

Even since 1999, Obasanjo and Buhari have come to represent these tropical gangsters, the juntas. When we compare one evil with the other rather than sacrifice our lives if necessary to rid ourselves of all evils, we enthrone kleptocracy, nepotism, ethnicity and even tribalism above common sense, above the good of all. Systemic necrosis becomes inevitable. Our predicament seems incurable under a useless form of system called unitary system.

It has led to more than 40 years of misrule, the introduction and propagation of hope through foreign religions at the expense of equality and social justice. The useless unitary system and the senseless federal character  led to diversion from hardwork /dignity of labor towards ostentatious lifestyle, grave nepotism and cancerous tribalism. The dirty celebration of ill-gotten wealth also crippled Nigeria further.

Today, the sum of all evil culminated in the existence of two criminal organizations called APC and PDP with the same agenda/goal. The total eradication of these two monsters will be a valid first step towards hope for a better federation. Nigeria needs a restart button, some sort of reboot to reset and begin again. Until freedom comes and until true independence is achieved, the agitations from the various regions would remain permanent.

Sadly, Nigerians will likely remain the poorest people on earth as long as this arrangement stays. Pray all you want: Niger delta will remain polluted, almajiris are forever, roads will remain death traps, public schools/universities will never rise again, primary/public health care will remain almost non-existence and the few successful learned people/experts/professionals (including sportspeople) will continue to seek other countries, making the world a better place and Nigeria (the producer of the brains) a shit-hole.

Truth is bitter but constant.

There is nothing happening in Nigeria today that we have not highlighted in the last 2 decades. Personally, l have put pen to paper about these issues since 2002. Dig the archives of the Nigerian Guardian and read my article in 2002 titled: Why Politicians Steal.

The more you think things we change, the more they stay the same or get worse. We unite and rally round the wrong things. We bring our best brains into a stupid political system and they join the useless circus called unitary government. Nigeria’s (useless) unitary system is government of the elites, by the elites and for the elites.

The day the rest of us are ready for freedom is the day we shall rally round the things that matter to us. We will unify on the way forward for all the different ethnicities trapped in this expired British product called Niger-area (Nigeria).

Those who will suffer most under this elitist system are our children and our children’s children. If they are in Nigeria, when the time comes, they would fight for their freedom. If they already became slaves again, even on home soil, and therefore hopeless, they will curse our graves and make sure they are unmarked.

A Country Called Nigeria (Part 1)

A Country Called Nigeria (Part 1)

Written By Adeola Aderounmu

20190117_204111.jpg

The rest of the world is making giant strides and the rate of global development is amazing. It is like a race to perfection, a sort of paradise on earth. Nigeria is not having the same goals as other developed countries of the world. This can be expressed and proved in more than a million words.

It is this same sad story that we have been writing about since time immemorial. But it appears that for some of us, we have to keep writing about it. For so many other people, the happenstance called Nigeria is the only life they know. What if they knew better? What will become of Nigeria if the people who write about the ills in that relegated country stop writing? How low can Nigeria descend?

Politics and Elections.

Politically, Nigeria is backward. The so-called president of Nigeria in the person of Mr. Buhari is an epitome of the decay and outright foolishness that is displayed as politics in Nigeria. Buhari has almost no education, forged a certificate to contest, and in the last 4 years (2015- 2019) have shown that he is more interested in power than in performances.

The 2019 presidential election conducted under his watch is nothing but a disgrace to the human race.

The elections in Nigeria are disgraceful for so many reasons. The ruling party, the APC cheated. The main opposition, the PDP, also had been involved in electoral frauds since 1999. The policemen and soldiers were active and played decisive roles in the outcome of the elections. The greatest disappointments in electoral matters in Nigeria lie with the electoral body called INEC and the electorates-the people who have also become zombified by a largely fraudulent system.

INEC executed a manual system that is ridiculous and laughable. In the 21st century approaching the 22nd, Nigerians cannot count themselves in a successful census and Nigerians cannot line up and be counted on elections days. They have not even dreamt of an automated system based on the social security number system. Nigeria is far from civilization where it mattered most.

 

Infrastructure: Roads, Water and Electricity

I have been running this blog since 2006. One of the biggest issues on this blog is the dearth of infrastructure in Nigeria. How can anyone believe that there is no electricity in Nigeria? How can you reckon with the absence of water that should be provided by state and federal governments? Do you know that some of the worst roads in the world are in Nigeria? Go and check out Badagry-Oshodi expressroad or Agbara road linking to Ogun state.  These are not even roads anymore, they are the longest stretch of deathtraps l have seen in my entire life.

One day l was reading through an old post where l reflected on the speech of Mrs. Clinton during her short visit to Nigeria. In her words, she said “when you hear Nigeria, you think wao! everywhere is electrified!”. But sadly, many years after her visit, Nigeria is still not electrified by electricity. The country is electrified instead by evil, kidnapping and terrorism. Then you start to think, “what kinds of morons are running the country”? Where is their shame? Where are their senses? Do they even have brains?

The Nigerian Genocide Under The Watch Of Buhari

If you defend yourself, you can live to tell the story. If you do not defend yourself, other people will tell your story and they will not tell the true story.

The Nigerian Genocide Under The Watch Of Buhari

By Adeola Aderounmu

There is a lot of massacre going on in Nigeria. The people of Nigeria need to react and start nationwide protests (where/if necessary). The rest of the world should stop acting dumb and deaf. All the groups that are under siege depending on their ethnicity and religion need to start defending themselves properly. In some situations, we have seen Christians (and non-Christians) massacred senselessly, and I think it is about time they took up arms and defend themselves. If you defend yourself, you can live to tell the story. If you do not defend yourself, other people will tell your story and they will not tell the true story.

The terrorists are enjoying massive support and logistics from the APC government.

The terrorist activities of Boko Haram are well documented. They are controlling a substantial part of northern Nigeria, probably up to 15% or more. When Buhari said in 2015, through his minister of information, one notorious liar called Lai Mohammed, that Boko Haram had been technically defeated, (false) optimism was raised.

Today, in 2019, Boko Haram is one of the deadliest terrorist groups in the word having free movements and free flow of arms and weaponry into Nigeria through the undefined and unprotected borders. The Nigerian army has been severely disgraced and defeated several times by the terrorists.

But the rage of genocide in Nigeria under the watch of Buhari has grown massive tentacles.

Rather than label all terrorists as terrorists, the Buhari government developed fanciful and distractive names for them. Names like bandits and Fulani herdsmen have emerged. Even Miyeti Allah.

In reality these are all terrorist organizations and they found great fertility under the APC-Buhari mandate since 2015. Nigeria is in a serious soup as the jihadist movements expanded greatly in the last 4 years. Several communities in the middle belt of Nigeria that were originally occupied by predominantly Christians have been sacked and transformed to Islamic communities. In extreme situations, the names of some communities have changed.

Under Buhari, several communities have been wiped away or displaced and the level of outrage has been disappointing. Several reasons can be responsible for this muted acceptance or state of silence locally and internationally. But the evil cannot be swept away under the carpets, not for long though.

In Nigeria, the government has been so irresponsible that in the eyes of the people, there is no government. Since the existence of the people have been reduced to survival of the fittest, there are no more outrages as people’s state of mind have returned to the barbaric stone age.

When Buhari said in 2015, through his minister of information, one notorious liar called Lai Mohammed, that Boko Haram had been technically defeated, (false) optimism was raised.

So it’s like the acronym, all man to himself and [God] for us all. But this is sad, that the security of lives and property lost its nomenclature and became nationally declassified.

As it is in Nigeria today, staying alive is a miracle and no longer a right. I will not be able to highlight all the atrocities and anomalies that terminate lives daily in Nigeria. But the recent (2019) elections where several lives were lost because invariably the elections became a show of force and in some cases an open war between the ruling party and the oppositions, tell a lot.

The police brutality, the army brutality, the road accidents, the collapse of buildings, kidnapping, assassinations, daylight murders, cult wars, and several vices that ought to be abominable and condemnable have disrupted the normal psyche of the average Nigerian. Fighting for one’s personal survival have become the first law of living in Nigeria.

So, if Boko Haram razed down a whole community in Maiduguri or if Fulani Herdsmen shot dead 50 people in Plateau including pregnant women and children, the people in Ogun State will go to church and give thanksgiving that they are alive. But now the genocide has moved south and the people of Ogun are also bracing for the murders ahead.

Quite undeterred, the terrorists either as Boko Haram or Miyetti Allha will continue with their Islamic agenda, razing down one community after the other. Some states like Benue are worst hit! The people who have not been hit are still giving thanks. Soon they will learn to take arms to defend themselves. That is the only way to survive a terrorist situation when the government appears to be the sponsor.

Soon, Nigerians will know that staying alive is not about being at the right place at the tight time or the wrong place at the wrong time. Staying alive when the government is in support of terrorism will soon become a regional battle and the breakup of Nigeria may become inevitable, unless the APC- led government of Buhari and Osinbajo stop the herdsmen and BH.

 

Over the years, education has been truncated. I mean public education where it should be compulsory and basic. More than 15 million Nigerian children may be out of school. In government, criminals are over represented making the case for education less attractive. Buhari is not educated and so are several persons across Nigeria occupying sensitive and public positions. People of low mentalities, sometime zero mentalities are leading Nigeria to the gutters.

Today the security of Nigeria is heavily tilted, with nearly all the service chiefs from the core north of Nigeria. Buhari is the most dangerous nepotic person alive in the world today. The ruling party is a sham and a complete disgrace to humanity and the case for freedom, democracy and development of the human mind. Rather than wage a war of terrorism, the service chiefs are getting fatter on contracts of weapons that never buy. They are building and buying properties in Dubai. This country, Nigeria, is cursed from beyond!

Where do we go from here?

Buhari needs to be stopped. He can’t rule Nigeria for the next 4years. In terms of security and the protection of life and property, which is the first duty of any government, this APC government is not working. The people of Algeria recently forced their president to resign totally from politics. The same fate should be meted to a man as incompetent as Buhari.

 

The terrorists masquerading as herdsmen must be stopped. They are not herdsmen if they carry weapons. They are not herdsmen if they can re-group at short notice and overtake other people’s communities at will. This is Jihad. The Nigerian Christians must equip their people and churches to resist further Jihadist expansion. They must fight to reclaim the stolen lands and villages. Beyond religion, every ethnic group in Nigeria owes it to their ancestors and future generations to protect their heritage and future. These are non-negotiable acts of existence.

The people of Nigeria need to renegotiate their collective existence. That is the best way to get rid of Boko Haram totally. When the problem becomes the problem only of the North, l am sure they will strategize to either defeat Boko Haram or incorporate the organization as its legal army. This cat and mouse game must end someway. It should not cost the East, West or South a dime. The Northern elites invented Boko Haram the same way the Southern elites invented the militants. In a separate and self-determining system, every region would either deal with its problem or perish with them

All these stupid talks about weapons from Libya would be stopped if the North is going to be consumed by it. But when it is used as an expansionist agenda to take over the middle belts and probably subdue the rest of Nigeria under a unitary system of government, the north care less. When we are separate, we will be readier to defend out territories.

 

But before then, from now, the rest of Nigeria needs to take up arms to defend itself because the BUHARI government is not going to do that. It has never done that, it will never do it.

There are many ways and many opinions on these issues and of course many think that Nigeria should remain as one country. But if you have tried something from 1966 to 2019 and it didn’t work, what is the probability that it will ever work? As a mathematician and a scientist, my opinion is that both empirical and practical issues must go hand in hand and for Nigeria the outcome of a unitary system of government remains a disaster.

It is time to renegotiate Nigeria, peacefully. The jihadist movement will not work. It did not work before, it will not work now or in the future. And when the dust is settled, Nigerians must make haste to prosecute all the military men under whose watch genocide have been perpetrated unabated. You know them, we know them.

The Useless Representation Of The International Community During Elections In Nigeria

By Adeola Aderounmu

The elections that held in Nigeria on 23rd February was probably the worst or ranked among the worst in the history of Nigeria.

in this age of internet and social media generally, it was easy to see live coverage of disturbing images during the election. There were some coverages that were not transmitted live and some of them could be part of the fake news.

Watch this video here and see how one very stupid and extremely useless foreign observer tried to downplay the lives and property that were lost in this election.

The man making this presentation should be arrested and try by a court of law for lies and probable distortion in terms of the lives lost in Nigeria before and during the election of 23rd February 2019.

One can now begin to question the presence of international observers in Nigerian elections. There was another video making rounds of a foreign observer engaging in the distortion of election results in the southern part of Nigeria.

In any case, l think the bulk lies with Nigeria. Senegal held election in the country and in almost 50 countries in diaspora and it was hitch-free.

Our politics is a matter of life and death because Nigerian politicians are criminals and until they begin to go to jail or even executed, it does not seem that killings would stop at our elections.

The other critical aspect is the question of Nigeria as one country. What took place in Borno and Yobe on the 23rd of February were ballot papers were thumb-printed by a few guys in mosques and schools and the results showed record high figures dictated by INEC officials.

Again, l drift from the main essay because Nigeria is a major problem. One problem leads to another and your essay get longer and longer.

These international observers seen in this video should be sent packing from Nigeria and they should never NEVER return. These are not observers, they are MURDERERS!

2019 Nigerian Elections And A People’s Resolve To Remain Poor and Slaves

…But what you saw yesterday 23rd of February is tribal, religious and ethnic votings where the people are disorientated and they reinforced the notion that Nigeria is never going to work as a country but as a business enterprise where the winners take it all.

The AAC party and the #takeitback movement offered Nigerians another approach to life and a hope for the future. It is the closest thing to the mandate that the military gangsters stole in 1993.

The AAC was led by Omoyele Sowore.

Another notable party with a presidential candidate not tainted by previous engagement with either APC or PDP is ANN headed by Fela Durotoye.

In any case, the election results showed that either APC or PDP would win the presidency.

More than 100 million Nigerians are poor. They are living from hand to mouth. They are unsure of the next meal. These people are mostly unemployed and they live under some of the most inhumane conditions on earth.

On election day, there was only one way to show that they are not satisfied with the lives they are living, and that is to vote another party so that both APC and PDP should be empty on the ballot papers. That is the only thing that would have shown that Nigeria is a country unified against SLAVERY and TYRANNY.

But what you saw yesterday 23rd of february 2019 was tribal, religious, and ethnic votings where the people are disorientated and they reinforced the notion that Nigeria is never going to work as a country but as a business enterprise where the winners take it all.

From 1999 to 2015, PDP emptied the Nigerian treasury. From 2015 to date, APC has been emptying the treasury and the classical example was when 2 cash vans allegedly carrying over 100 million dollars arrived the home of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, one of the most dangerous criminals alive in the world today. He is of the ruling party, APC.

So rather than revolt with their votes and go for a new country where leadership will be accountable and where there will be null tolerance to corruption, Nigerians kept fate with their slave masters in both APC and PDP.

If Nigeria does not divide into various regions and if a war does not break because of the ethnic tensions, ethnic cleansing, killings by herdsmen, bandits on the rampage and Boko Haram war in the north, the people of Nigeria have decided to be slaves together for at least 4 more years.

I want this to be a short essay because l have written about all of these since 2002 and to have the courage to continue is definitely legendary. How many bloggers are left to write about these things since we started blogging back in the days?

So my congratulations to the slaves of Nigeria. They keep shouting, who is Sowore, what is AAC? They are mocking us for not seeing that Nigeria is a two party state. Really? Two parties? They mean the same party organised into 2 for the same purpose of stealing, looting and enslavement. But they know nothing..! lgnorance and almost complete lack of public education have taken their tolls on the average nigerian mentality and way of reasoning.

I mean even if AAC or ANN are not as popular as PDP and APC, are there not enough reasons to see that APC and PDP are the same criminal organisations that regularly interchange members? But like l opined earlier, Nigeria is not a country, so the different ethnic groups continue to fight for the center and the unitary system of government makes Nigerians one of the most low level thinking humans as far as politics is concerned.

I wish you a happy journey to the next 4 years of slavery.

Thank you Sowore (of AAC), and thank you Durotoye (of ANN) for fighting a good fight. You guys were new on the block and you gave us hope for a moment. Now as we (Sowore, Durotoye and l) go towards our 50th birthday, let us sit back and have fun. We have done our bits and we deserve to chill sometimes.

But it would be nice to see you fight again if Olodumare gives us the grace to be alive at the next opportunity. Afterall life expectancy in Nigeria is about 40 years now! (a private communication with my medical doctor friend at LUTH is the source) and we have lived a bit more than that already. We are survivors!

Thank You Sowore, thank you Durotoye!

Best of luck to the 100 million slaves about to take a bow to APC + PDP.
