2020 Nigeria: Confined In Corruption And Poverty

Nigeria must be dismantled, totally. Nigeria must end for the nations entrapped within it to emerge and begin afresh. It is only competition between the different regions or nations within Nigeria that can reduce corruption and eradicate poverty

2020 Nigeria: Confined In Corruption And Poverty

Adeola Aderounmu

This is the 27th day of July, 2020 and Nigeria as it stands is still being ruled by hardcore criminals and gangsters spread across 2 criminal organisations called APC and PDP.

The central government is headed by APC headed by a criminal called Muhammadu Buhari.

For those who are not used to the useless form of democracy in Nigeria, a quick recap is that Nigeria left military rule in 1999 and civilians took over. From 1999 to 2015, a criminal organisation called PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) led the Nigerian government and what followed was massive corruption as usual and extreme spread of poverty and hopelessness. In 2015, Nigerians thought a change had come and voted for another criminal organisation called APC (All Progressive Congress).

(Note: for details of Nigeria´s political history, please look elsewhere).

In this month of  July alone, the entire world has been watching the drama unfolding in one of the several corrupt government institutions in Nigeria, the NDDC. I am not able to provide the details of what has transpired, sadly.

My take is that the problem is not just the NDDC. Everything about governance in Nigeria is wrong and crazy.

The NDDC has always been corrupt. The NDDC will always be corrupt. Check out NNPC too. Check out INEC, NEPA, the National Assembly, the Legislative arm, the Judiciary, the states and the governors, the Executives (presidency and ministers), state commissioners and everywhere and everything about government in Nigeria. What you see is different aggregation of criminals and criminal minds in public offices.

Corruption is not limited to public institutions in Nigeria. The private sector is also ripping Nigeria and Nigerians into pieces. You can start from the TELECOMS for a preview. They will milk poor Nigerians to starvation and deaths.

Nigeria is corruption personified. It is a country confined in a systemic culture of corruption.  For the past 2 decades, this has been my theme on my essays, articles and blog entries.

More than 30 years ago, there was an article in one of Nigeria´s newspaper raising a question about the common man in Nigeria and his survival based on his meagre wage. The writer concluded that it was just impossible to live on such a wage. Today, the common man in Nigeria earns comparatively less (in dollar rate). How does anyone in Nigeria live on N30 000 minimum wage monthly? How is that possible? I should address this in another article.

Specifically Nigerian politicians from all across Nigeria are mentally deranged, have low cerebral functions, are grossly incompetent, possess unbelievable, insatiable lusts for material possessions. Their collective stupidity and ineptitude continues to confine Nigeria to the league of poor countries, poor citizens and poverty-plagued existence not worthy of lower animals.

My aim today is to remind you as l have done in almost 2 decades that the person called the president of Nigeria is Buhari and he is leading probably the most corrupt government ever in Africa´s history. Like l always write, l thought Jonathan and the PDP gang would be the worst we had seen at the end of 2015. But this criminal called Buhari and the APC crew blew my mind away with the latest dimension of corruption in Nigeria since 2015.

The most annoying thing about this is the different nations enslaved in Nigeria, taking turns in different capacities and contributing to the ruins. I have mentioned names in many articles and it is becoming old fashioned. Still, take a little time and follow criminals like Akpabio and Oshiomhole if you want to have an idea of the problems. Then take time to follow all the politicians that are prominent, write their names and add corruption in a google search.

Buhari himself started stealing before 1977 but in 1977 he made it official as a minister of petroleum. Do you know how many years that is, from 1977 to 2020, that Buhari has had his hands in Nigeria´s public treasury?

Those aso rock dogs called special assistants or media assistants for things and nonsenses are just looking after their daily bread. Femi Adesina comes to mind. This is another criminal mind. When this is over, he would follow the lines of Segun Adeniyi and Reuben Abati in writing some stupid books or memos. Yorubas called such people didinrins.

Nigeria must be dismantled, totally. Nigeria must end for the nations entrapped within it to emerge and begin afresh. It is only competition between the different regions or nations within Nigeria that can reduce corruption and eradicate poverty.

The Yorubas  and the Ibos especially are very unfortunate to be clumped with the rest of Nigeria. These are ethnic groups that can survive on their own and rule the world in all ramifications. The Niger Delta would have toed the same line of progress and prosperity.

The North is lazy, but it would have emerged based on the competition from the other regions around or close to it.

Together in Nigeria, all these nations remain slaves to the colonial masters and the dumb ass politicians and elites who remain the most formidable criminal organisation in Africa. This is the bane of Nigeria.

These are some of the problems facing Nigeria. As it stands, like l always write, Nigeria will never, never make it under the present criminal political arrangement. Let me tell you, there will always be people and organisations that will prosper under the situation in Nigeria. You will be stupid to use your personal progress as a measure of the workability of Nigeria, a rotten country with a despicable high morality rate.

I don´t even want to remind you of the other things that make Nigerians less human. I don´t even want to start with our ladies who don´t know that they are mentally deranged with all the nonsense wigs on their heads. Our boys have all taken to rituals and cultism. Terrorists are made locally and internationally and dumped across the area called Nigeria. What is left of being African? What is left of being a Yoruba? Ibo? Kanuri? Bini?

Africa is long gone and the nations that should help rebuild are fading away not just because of poverty and corruption but also as a result of the total destruction of the cultural heritage of motherland-Africa.

Specifically Nigerian politicians from all across Nigeria are mentally deranged, have low cerebral functions, are grossly incompetent, possess unbelievable, insatiable lusts for material possessions. Their collective stupidity and ineptitude continues to confine Nigeria to the league of poor countries, poor citizens and poverty-plagued existence not worthy of lower animals.

Is Osinbajo Under Aso Rock (House) Arrest?

If Osinbajo is not under Aso Rock House Arrest, let him visit his family in Ogun State. Let him go on a live tv program in Yorubaland. Let us know the time and let us call him directly on the program. Let us speak to our son and let us speak to his wife.

That won’t be too much for a Yorubaman to ask a fellow Yorubaman? Would it, Aso-rock houseboy generalismo, Femi?

Is Osinbajo Under Aso Rock (House) Arrest?

Adeola Aderounmu (is asking).

 

wp-1589310079896993756676641048889.jpg

Mr. Femi Adesina should get this straight, that nonsense he spilled on a recent radio program does not hold water. Mr. Femi Adesina should GO AND SIT DOWN!!! His talk is what we call nonsense and ingredients in our old western Nigeria, the good old Yorubaland.

The crux of the matter is that Mr. Osinbajo and Mr. Buhari need to appear before Nigerians and present themselves live. That is the only acceptable style for people elected democratically.

Those useless recordings that Channels TV and NTA have been calling live broadcasts must stop.

Now, at least those Nigerians trooping to listen to the (fake) live broadcasts now know that they have been fooled. I remember how my former mates at Festac Grammar School left our online meeting in April, disrupted procedures and went to watch Buhari’s (fake) live broadcast.  I didn’t know how to convince them that they are being fooled. ln fact, l was shocked that they didn’t know that it was not a live broadcast.

This is one of the problems with Nigerians. Even when they have known the truth, they refused to set themselves free. The people who wrote that verse would still be in shock why Africans are not free. The truth did not set us free.

I appeared once on Channels TV in 2016 and l am sure l will not be doing that again. The organization as well as NTA are useless to the core. How can they tag a recorded broadcast “live”? So stupid!

Where is Osinbajo? Where is Buhari?

These 2 elements, together, promised changes, and Nigerians fell for the message (which is now a scam). It took only a few weeks after the election to get the confirmation that apc is pdp and pdp is apc. Any Nigerian still standing in line behind these criminal organization would need a mental evaluation. Of course, we know that greed for the monies being looted daily is the only attraction.

In any case, no matter what, these 2 guy-Bubu and Babakekere-were voted or rigged into power. Now is the time for them to stand side by side and hand in hand and address Nigerians on so many issues that appear to be bigger than their mandate in 2015.

The world as a whole face uncertainties. It is a collective challenge for humanity.

I won’t even argue about the republics of Oduduwa and Biafra at this time. Let me keep my eyes on the ball.

Where are the 2 dudes who promised change? Where is Buhari? Where is Osinbajo?

Let them take a 200 m live walk from their respective offices, approach live cameras and give 20 minutes responses to questions from gentlemen/women of the free press.

In another request, let them appear in a life discussion program with Nigerians. Nigerians want to ask them questions about now and the future.

Femi Adesina has no functional cerebrum. Otherwise he would not speak of “style”.

What is style? What nonsense is that? Femi Adesina should be cheeked for drug abuse or mental ailment.

The most powerful presidents and head of governments in the world are addressing their citizens and showing humility. Mr. Adesina-houseboy generalismo– is talking about style. Nonsense and ingredients.

If Osinbajo is not under house arrest, let him and his boss come before the people who voted for them, live, and answer some questions about:

  • job
  • unemployment
  • insecurity
  • COVID-19 or Kovik one nine (whatever),
  • almajiris flocking south,
  • amotekun,
  • Biafra,
  • Yoruba nation
  • UNPO and all other matters arising.

What plan do they have for the future of the youths? What plan do they have for the restoration of our health sector in the face of a global pandemic? What is the future of research and technology? Education? Roads? Housing? Infrastructure?

These are the questions and global leaders are answering now and reassuring their citizens. Who is reassuring Nigerians? Whose voice is behind those useless recorded broadcasts?

One houseboy in Aso rock cannot bambooze 200 million people and talk about one silly style? What kind of style is that? Where is Buhari and where is Osinbajo?

Who is blackmailing Osinbajo? With what? Trademoni? Well done then!

What is Kingibe doing in Aso rock? What are his official functions? What is Mr. Gambari coming to do at over 80 something? You call him 75 or 77. Really?

Is he the new de-facto president? Where is Buhari? Where is Osinbajo? We assume that these 2 won the elections in 2015. It is their faces we want to see. It is their live programs and live discussions we want to participate in.

 

Nigerians let me now address you. You are taking a lot of bullshits and your collective amnesia is a scandal all over the world.

You did not elect Adesina. You did not elect shithole special assistants. But these are the people who have been running your lives on behalf of some cabals. My question to you is, how long can you live with the nonsense and ingredients being thrown at you by special assistants for nonsenses?

Yoruba citizens must ask: Where is Osinbajo? The Yoruba Nation must invite Osinbajo to the South West, today!

We have our Amotekun in Yorubaland. We have also become a member of the UNPO. When Oduduwa stands, we need Osinbajo. Mr. Adesina and all of you speaking on his behalf, without showing us his life appearances, if anything happens to Osinbajo (which we hope not), we will hold you accountable.

If Osinbajo is not under Aso Rock House Arrest, let him visit his family in Ogun State. Let him go on a live tv program in Yorubaland. Let us know the time and let us call him directly on the program.

That won’t be too much for a Yorubaman (Adeola Aderounmu) to ask another Yorubaman (Yemi Osinbajo)?

Would it, Aso-rock houseboy generalismo, Femi?

I Warned You: “Never, Never Stand With Tyranny”!

The fact that Buhari, a well-established con man, a man guilty of treasonably felony on more than one accasion and a man who committed Nigeria’s first international kidnapping crime continues to get away with crimes almost on a daily basis speaks volume of the nature of the people living in present day Nigeria.

…all those who are suggesting that Nigeria will never succeed as a country will be proven right someday.

I Warned You: Never, Never Stand With Tyranny

By Adeola Aderounmu

20191206_1846446715563288106812896.jpg

On the 10th of January 2016, l published an article with the headline: You Should Never, Never Stand With Tyranny. Among the few things Nigerians don’t take for granted are messages from their spiritual warlords or overseers and now insta-influencers. Every other thing that possibly makes sense but emanating from people they don’t recognize or reckon with are quickly thrashed, not read or totally ignored.

Let me digress, today the educational world is built on a number of old theories that were redundant for several decades and some for nearly a century. They have been rediscovered and their relevances have taken their rightful place in the academic and educational world.

Bruner, Vygotskij and a lot of individuals whose work were not appreciated in the last and present centuries have returned to the front pages of learning theories that are now shaping the world. Even Vygotskij’s theory of defectology is now an integral part of special needs education.

The point l am trying to make here is that all those who are suggesting that Nigeria will never succeed as a country will be proven right someday. It is sad that they won’t be here then. It does not matter what you and l think today and on which side of the divide we pitch out tents. We will be long dead when the coming generations would find their bearings and spit on all our graves, home and abroad. Again, it does not matter what you think. It would be a shame and a disgrace that we did not take the bulls by the horns. We are not conquering our fears. We may never do.

We are drifting, hoping for the best. We are doing things the same way, hoping for different results. I feel so sorry for the brain-dead Buharists, and even heist-hope non-Buharists alike. The majority are on one side of the divide or the other whereas no one should belong to either side of sad historical occurrences. I feel great sympathy, and now empathy, for those wrestling Nigeria, a well-known and internationally acclaimed failed aggregation- with Buhari or APC.

For about 2 decades, l have written about almost all the categories of Nigerians and l develop a feeling of pathological-tautology trying to highlight these categories. I write less nowadays not because l am tired but because l have so many things going on at the moment.

Another reason is because when l browse my blog, l see that all matters have been addressed. I think my blog will be useful for the revolution that will take place when the present useless generations have wiped themselves off the face of the earth, leaving the world with sad stories of enslavements and horrid tales of humanity.

Again, some people actually think Nigeria is working because for one reason or the other, they do not have to kidnap or rob a bank to eke out a living. Some have been advantageously placed all their lives that they lost the meaning and essence of living. In Nigeria, living a fairly good life is seen and treated as a means of oppression to the disadvantaged. If you have an open mind, you would have done a lot of mental research like l have done. Why are we competing rather than living a common, good life?

Some people are so selfish, and probably foolish they think that those who are socially disadvantaged are not prayerful or not industrious enough. Where is the level playing field? The history and the anthropology of the Nigerian could be developed and studied in an entire academic faculty, hence l dare not thread further. But l know what l know. You know what you know. If you think what is going on in Nigeria is true picture of humanity, one of us needs to be in chains.

This essay could last forever and could address all issues but l will keep it very vague because l have been thinking about Nigeria every second and every minute of my free time. I hope the headline did not mislead you. It is true anyway.  My heart aches and l am probably lucky not to have a heart attack yet. That is how much l process Nigeria daily.

The fact that Buhari, a well-established con man, a man guilty of treasonably felony since the early 1980’s and a man who committed Nigeria’s first international kidnap continues to get away with crimes almost on a daily basis speaks volume of the nature of the people living in Nigeria. That explains my suggestion for the devotion of an entire university faculty to the anthropology of the Nigerian.  We need to know what is going on in the mind of the Nigerian that made slavery so convenient to perpetrate. What makes resistance and revolution impossible? What is the real reason why the nations entrapped in Nigeria cannot emerge to start the actual long walk to freedom?

If this generation of Nigerians dare to get close to the rest of the world before they die, Buhari should be historic in the next 48 – 72 hours. But that is not going to happen as Nigeria itself is a fraud. The answers to my questions would be useful for the coming generation. They have my best wishes!

I left the arguments in public spaces because my blog gives me the freedom to express my feelings. I think l am full of reasonable dose of rage. I put my rage in studying. I put the energy into doing things and getting many things done at the same time and in record time. Therefore, l am very opportune to have this life, this freedom. I am 100% sure l would have given it up if l never left Nigeria. I am not a saint, but l am sure the only way to stop me from what l am writing now is to get rid of me.

I stayed back in Sweden when Yar Adua was picking up bloggers, and torturing them. Yes, some of you don’t know this fact. But I didn’t show up when a friend sent me a message to let me know what was going on. Where is Yar Adua today? In 2015 a bill to send bloggers and internet warriors to prison was proposed. It probably did not get far.

So, the new bill to do the same is not new. It is just that we forget things so easily in Nigeria.

I am going to end this essay without really making it clear where l was coming from and where l am heading. Now, l write for myself. I write for the future and for the coming generations that will love freedom and never settle for slavery.

But if you actually find a meaning in this essay, welcome to the club of the intellectuals. At least, we almost became geniuses too. After writing for almost 20 years, l have come to the conclusion that my essays, like Vygotskijs, would be useful for the unborn generations. That’s how l think now.

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.

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?
