Keyamo, APC Attack Dog 2

By Adeola Aderounmu

 

Yes l am very emotional about the nature of politics as practised by apc n pdp.

Yes l am emotional l have deleted people on my friends’ list in a couple of places.

As long as this is wrong, l will be emotional about it.

Listen to a lawyer supporting the murder of Nigerians without trial.

All in the name of politics and the money they are stealing.

Is this one a lawyer? No. This is just an attack dog. Yes l take it personal. This is my blog and that is why it is my blog since 2007.

Everyone can start a blog and express their feelings and emotions.

How many of us started with blogs in 2007? How many of us are left today? Where did they go? They joined politics and took sides with the oppressors. They joined politics and became spokesmen of the murderers.

Look at this man very well. This is EVIL PERSONIFIED.

The man he is defending truncated civilian rule on a number of occasions. So tell him that BUHARI is the first man today who should be shot dead!!! This is the implication of what he is saying and he is supposed to be a lawyer but he does not even realise the contradiction. This is a worthless attack dog! No one can quantify my ANGER looking at this piece of SHIT! But hey! This is my blog!

Please let me be emotional. Let me use whichever language l like because this video shows an animal who should be locked up in a cage.

This is not a lawyer. He should burn!

Nigerian President Wants Ballot Snatchers Killed

By Adeola Aderounmu

“….at the expense of his life”

This means death.

 

We have said it that this man should be taken off the ballot.

How can you say….”expense of his life’?

Because of ballot boxes?

Nowadays, nobody even snatches ballot boxes. Buhari is not even aware how the APC rigging machine brought him to power in 2015.

What a shame!

Rigging is done by manipulating results digitally through INEC.

In several states, like we saw in Abia state last week, results are written even before the elections are conducted. Yes. It is so in many places in Nigeria.

In Lagos, Tinubu can make anyone or anybody governor or assembly members. How is that possible? Buhari should just go home and stop disgracing his family in public.

Expense of his life….because of ballot box. This guy is not normal at all.

 

This video was viral on the day of the cancelled election, 16th february and it showed how election results are written by some state governor and passed to state INEC for announcement. This guy was unfortunate and surely somebody tipped the opposition or the police.

The guy did not snatch a ballot. He had results in his hands and the voting did not even take place.

Buhari’s statement is reckless, hopeless and taste of blood and vengeance. I maintain that Buhari is not a normal human being and should not be running on the platform of the APC.

History will remember that some of us kept to our stance/stand on this issue and many more in Nigeria. People may not care now, but the future generations will be guided by the mistakes of this reckless and slave-like generation of Nigerians.

 

Nigerian Governor Call For The Massacre Of Foreigners

By Adeola Aderounmu

A serving governor in Nigeria Mr. El Rufai has called for foreigners who interfere in Nigerian elections to be murdered and send back to their countries in body bags.

This is probably the most useless tv interview you will see this month and this should probably open your eyes on the emergence and rise of Boko Harm in Northern Nigeria.

 

 

Those who have been in doubt  about the roles of the elites like Buhari, Atiku and El-Rufai in the emergence and rise of Boko Haram need to start a new analysis of the genesis and rise of Boko Haram.

This is how it all started. This slip of thoughts by El Rufai is a tip of the icebergs in the mentality of the Northern elites.

Go back in time when Atiku and Buhari promised to unleash terror if they lost elections. Where do you think the terror was coming from? Of course, they always meant the use of Boko Haram and the use of ever ready to slaughter Northerners. Or ask yourself, who are the fighters that are going to kill foreigners and put them in body bags? They cannot be the police and l don’t think El-Rufai had the Nigerian army in mind.

Does that make sense now? Ok, go and do more research and you will see how we have been beating about the bush about the people to really arrest in order to stop Boko Haram.

From another point of view, when l listened to El-Rufai   in this short clips, l saw one of the several reasons why Africa is underdeveloped. We have basically mad men in power, people of very low mentalities.

Europe and America for sure had their histories but so does Africa. We have had our dark history. Now the world is in the light and everyone is civil but El Rufai said we should still be going through this nonsense again. Then when are we going to emerge and catch up with the rest of the world.

No, Mr. foolish El Rufai, we are tired of this regurgitation—-every country went thru this or that. We too have been here before. As recent as 1959, Nigeria had so much violence that the independence was shaky. Every election year had been hell and the military rule had been torturing.

We must emerge now and we cannot wait.

In addition, when you talk about what other countries went through, the last of them that is missing in Nigeria is the bloody revolution.

And in the words of El-Rufai, body bags are used for people like him in a bloody revolution. I support that if that will bring us at par with the rest of the world in the shortest time possible.

The problem is how we think.

In a sane world, should we even be talking about criminals in apc and pdp? Should they not all be under arrest now or serving terms in prisons? Criminals like El-rufai, who also doubled as a religious fanatic should never be seen in public. They should be in prisons and when they are free should only be controlling their bedrooms.

This man is evil and his case should be sent to the international criminal court of justice. There is nothing that should stop the arrest and prosecution of Buhar as well. These men don’t belong among other men, they are far from civil and the only thing that gives them satisfaction is the blood of others.

what a mess!

This Is Your Lagos? Shame On You APC, PDP, Buhari, Fasola And Ambode!(PhotoNews)

Many roads in Lagos states ought to be shut down as disaster zones. There are accidents, deaths and several untold hardships on these roads daily. Those who are responsible for these roads ought to be arrested and prosecuted for crimes against humanity.

 

By Adeola Aderounmu

I took all the pictures you see in this essay between June 26 and July 10 2018.

Civilian rule returned to Nigeria in 1999. This means that Nigerian politicians in both the ruling APC and the opposition PDP have spent together 19 years in governance and still cannot put right what the military gangsters destroyed.

So the systemic failure in Nigeria today is due largely to the lack of performances since 1999. We can argue that the stretch is longer but that is another discussion for another day.

20180628_1209381532015443.jpg

Lagos is heavily littered. The government needs to step up waste management system. Somebody should care about health care in relation to waste management and disposal.

The state of the federal roads in Lagos state which is the economic capital of Nigeria is very appalling and disgraceful.

The state of the roads in Lagos state is heart breaking, depressing and sorrowful. (I will treat some parts of Ogun state in another essay).

I do not share the notion that a certain government is trying or that a certain governor is working. That’s all bullshit!

In the last 19 years at least, there are no more tenable excuses why the roads in Lagos should be so terrible.

Sincerely if l could make the decision, l will block all the roads you see in this essay. Human beings should not be allowed to travel on these roads. They are permanent death traps and l wish someone in the the world somewhere has the power to shut down all these dangerous roads in Lagos and elsewhere in Nigeria.

 

20180628_1212261920394344.jpg

Roads in Nigeria are usually of low quality. They get bad before rainy season and worse during the rain. There are rivers on many roads in Lagos. This is Badagry expressway near the okokomaiko axis

20180628_121231532912869.jpg

Federal roads in Nigeria are amongst the worst roads in the world. Shame on Buhari and Fasola. Shame on previous PDP government

20180628_1212421161218073.jpg

Nigerian roads easily destroy cars and reduce their life span.

20180628_1213011532088574.jpg

Very bad roads in Lagos. Is this actually a road?

20180628_121355935632839.jpg

Bad road. What a useless government!

 

Whoever is responsible for these roads since 1999 ought to be arrested and prosecuted without delay. Since 2015, Mr. Buhari and Mr. Fasola are solely responsible for the federal roads in Lagos and they should be tried for crimes against humanity for all the deaths that continue to occur on the federal roads.

Without delay, the Badagry Express Way should be shut down!!! That is not an expressway. It is not even a road!

Mr. Ambode is culpable too because he is the number one citizen of Lagos state for the past 3 years! What has he been doing? Don’t tell me he is trying! He is not the governor of Lagos Island, is he?

If there are reasons why Mr. Fasola and Mr. Buhari have not constructed and maintained the federal roads in Lagos, why is Mr. Ambode not talking about it to the media and to the world just like l am doing now.

20180628_121418568378369.jpg

Badagry expressway has no defined lanes. You drive where you find a space and this means facing opposite traffic ofen times.

20180628_1214211767195283.jpg

Badagry expressway

20180628_121441804112633.jpg

Badagry expressway. How express is this road?

20180628_121444733803930.jpg

Trying to navigate a way.

20180703_1532451938739250.jpg

Smoky and gangerous plus l was faced by an oncoming traffic driving along Oshodi-Mile 2. Trailers and heavy traffic means driving on one way is a common trend.

20180703_17311145352083.jpg

Lagos roads are commonly dirty

20180703_1731341427958837.jpg

Badagry expressway. Very very bad road!

20180703_17560419926348.jpg

A trailer fell on the road due to the bad state of the road and big pot holes. Lagos roads are the most dangerous roads l have seen all my life!

20180703_175606929068844.jpg

The trailer could have fallen on people or other cars. But this was a single incident causing obstruction to the already bad situation

20180703_1758301639494251.jpg

Drving in rivers or on roads? Can we ask Buhari or Fasola? Vehicles face one another and there could be up to 8 lanes in multiple directions!!!

20180703_1758321858648325.jpg

These roads are the consequences of every N1 or N5 stolen by government officials! May you never find peace if you support a government or the governments causing these type of hardship. May your generations suffer!

20180708_1532261519690381.jpg

This commercial bus is going no where. In the middle of the road, tyres are off. A potential cause of accident!

20180708_153743297925627.jpg

A commercial bus broke down along Badagry expressway and the passengers wait for refund. Look at the road. LOOK AT THE FILTH! Is Nigeria really a country?

20180708_1542291007448391.jpg

Confusion and commotion

20180708_154431661392216.jpg

Dirty Lagos. Don’t tell me Ambode is working or trying. One dirty street means nobody is working! Somebody should be facing prosecution for allowing the people dump waste on major roads.

20180708_160408514521747.jpg

Bad road. Badagry express road.

20180708_160423690216811.jpg

Can we call this a road? Who will answer , Buhari or Fasola?

20180708_160426524358968.jpg

Is this a road Mr Buhari, Mr Fasola Mr Ambode?

20180708_1613441043691596.jpg

Crazy traffic in Lagos due to bad road

For one month at least, l’m going to pay for this essay on instagram and facebook. Then l will see what reactions we get. If possible, l will continue to sponsor the advertisement for this essay just as long as the problem remains and l will keep a tab on Lagos to see current situations.

How on earth can this be the situation and there are no outrages? What is wrong with Nigerians? What is wrong with Lagosians?

All the roads for transportation, state, local and federal must be in perfect shape and good maintenance. No road must be left untouched because the people of Nigeria deserve the best that life has to offer. You can’t do 50% of the roads. You can’t of 99% of the roads. The 1% left undone can cause death and other unwanted scenarios. You must be perfect. All roads must be fixed and that is the work/function of government.

The government is not doing the people any favour by doing what it is supposed to do.

 

20180708_1613531509431990.jpg

Mr. Buhari, Mr. Fasola and Mr. Ambode must put their heads together now and put politics and election aside for once. Lagos roads and all roads in Nigeria must be fixed. It is your job. It is your work. No one is begging you. You are servants to the people and serve you must or get the hell out of the offices you occupy.

What l saw of Lagos roads revealed to me that on the long run, Nigeria must do away with the useless and senseless unitary system of government as soon as possible.

 

20180709_1316501145671450.jpg

This part of festac town has been erased from the map of Nigeria. 4th avenue with faeces and sewage taking over the community for several years now.

20180709_131654379165868.jpg

Forgotten part of Lagos in Festac. The smell on this road is more or less a biological weapon against the people.

20180709_131658724697060.jpg

Festac Town. From glory to grass! Smelly stinking 4th avenue!

20180710_17263348773444.jpg

Somewhere about Ajao estate in Lagos as we drove to the airport. Lagos is giving wealth to Nigeria and the suffering is massive in Lagos. I cannot comprehend the shame and scandal in Lagos

I do not expect Mr. Buhari to know the roads l travel in Lagos. Even a federal minister knows little about the roads in Nigeria. But a governor and a local government chairman will know better. Therefore it is best to review how power can be taken away from that useless office in Abuja and taken back to the grassroots where people can see and solve their problems regionally and locally. It is just pure common sense!

20180710_173949564639398.jpg

Someplace in Lagos…bad roads everywhere. Did you say your governor is working? I say you have a governor for Lagos lsland, not a governor for Lagos! Certainly not a governor for Lagos mainland, not a governor for Iyana Iba, Okokomaiko towards Agbara Industrial Area. Dirty, messy Lagos!

 

I have been writing about the ills in Nigeria for almost 2 decades and l could go on here again in this essay but let’s save the tautology and hope that my message is clear: FIX ALL THE ROADS IN LAGOS AND END THIS SHAME!!

The Dangers Of Hypocrisy

I am still looking for those who resigned and blew the whsitle when Jonathan and his crew (both in PDP and APC) were looting the treasuries. I am now looking for those who are going to leave the Buhari government and blow the whistle (both in the APC and PDP) as a result of the budget padding and scandalous national/state security situation. Mr. Buhari himself should have resigned along with Lai Mohammed for misleading the world when they stated at the end of december 2015 that they had defeated Boko Haram.

The Dangers Of Hypocrisy By Adeola Aderounmu

20180505_0938061486851600.jpg

Adeola Aderounmu

There are no limits to the repercussions of hypocrisy. It is worse when the hypocrisy runs parallel with lies and propaganda. Two other dimensions that can worsen the situation is the spread and the acceptance of hypocrisy as a trait or norm within a political structure or among the people of a country.

As you read this essay the banks in Switzerland are still sending more and more of the monies stolen by one famous Nigerian criminal called Sani Abacha. He was unfortunately a former dictator in Nigeria whose death remains a subject of controversy.

Despite the fact that his loots are finding their ways back to Nigeria (since the regime of Obasanjo), Nigeria’s current president Mr. Buhari is yet to acknowledge that Abacha was in fact a criminal. This hypocrisy is dangerous and heart wrenching. This singular denial also shocks me when people say Buhari is not corrupt. I don’t understand how people don’t see the links.

Invariably the act of being a hypocrite extends to hangers-on of political associations. It cut across and destroys the consciences of both the enlightened and the disenfranchised as well as the educated and the ignorant. If Nigeria finally implodes, hypocrisy will not be left out as one of the diseases that sunk her.

If you listen keenly to Femi Adeshina you will find an example of a person who lost his mind and threw away his conscience to the lagoon all in the name of having a job and earning a mega pay. There were (before him) people like Reuben Abati, Reno Omokri and Segun Adeniyi. With him is a guy called Ogunlesi who thinks the rest of us are ordinary lower animals.

In my exposure to other countries where several of these spokesmen have also lived or visited before relocating to Aso rock, there is always a limit or threshold to how long an aide can defend a boss or get enveloped in the same cycle of ignobility.

What happens to the ability to resign or walk away to save one’s good image? Invariably my conclusion is simple: it takes a rogue to defend a rogue in matters of public accountability. It also takes selfishness and wickedness to turn blind eyes to the realities on ground in the daily existences of Nigerians.

Like l mentioned above, the realm of hypocrisy in Nigeria is massive. Therefore it is unforgiving that even professor Osinbajo lately said APC is not a corrupt government. But he is fully aware that APC integrated into its fold former PDP looters and existing APC looters. Their common saving grace is the unforgiving failure of the justice system in Nigeria. I always maintain that Nigerian laws remain useless as far as criminal politicians continue to rule Nigeria.

Osinbajo also said that APC is more honest than PDP. Since when did accountability to the people become a relative term? APC is confused. When the spree of murders and genocide escalated under this regime, APC stated that more people died during Jonathan’s PDP regime. My understanding of that conclusion is that the Nigerian life is worthless. Why else would number of deaths be comparative?

Late afromusic king Fela warned us many years ago about all those that do bad things in the names of their religious lords. We did not listen. We are still not paying attention.

Today l am neither for the APC nor for the PDP. I will go for a new orientation. It is about time people understood my stance nearly 12 years into this act of blogging. I stand for good government only. My inherent hatred for corruption and lack of independent reasoning have no bounds and it has no connection to religious or non-religious morality.

By a manner of another perspective and changing lanes, when next you read a criticism of the Buhari government from Reno Omokri, help me ask him where he was when Mrs. Jonathan and Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke where emptying the Nigerian treasury under the watchful eyes of Jonathan. Of course he would call it propaganda.

It is the same way everything was propaganda in the eyes of Segun Adeniyi of the Yar Adua regime. Now all you read here is propaganda for Mr. Adeshina. Wait for him to be out of the corridor of power. We saw Reuben Abati out, in and out again.

My take on some hypocrites is that they actually have their criminal minds before participating in all these serial governments of looters. How many more hypocrites and pretenders are going to emerge in 2019 if we don’t break this cycle of national madness?

I don’t even appreciate the headlines from people like Ngozi Iweala. Anyone that has been part of the governments in Nigeria and under whose watch or in whose presence massive looting had taken place is a bloody hypocrite.

I am still looking for those who resigned and blew the whistle when Jonathan and his crew (both in PDP and APC) were looting the treasuries. I am now looking for those who are going to leave the Buhari government and blow the whistle (both in the APC and PDP) as a result of the budget padding and scandalous national/state security situation. Mr. Buhari himself should have resigned along with Lai Mohammed for misleading the world when they stated at the end of december 2015 that they had defeated Boko Haram.

Mr. Donald Trump it appeared had no balls afterall. A straight talk would be to inform Mr. Buhari of his primary duty as the president of Nigeria. Buhari has failed and he is still failing to protect Nigerians. He, as well as the looters in the Nigerian senate, is failing to see the need for the immediate restructuring of Nigeria and the introduction of state police.

The hogwash in the White House led to increase in attacks in Nigeria. The long term consequences of the dangers poised by national and international hypocrisy and the passiveness of the drained Nigerian people are yet to be evaluated. But the signs are already very, very bad.

I can understand to some extent the feeling of party affiliation. What l cannot understand is the lack of will to stand with the truth. But l know many people are predictable in their love for money, power and position. Many people always discard the essence of public service because they want to remain relevant in the (dis)order of things in Nigeria.

These people look forward to recognition, gains and consolidations when the ocassion arises. So they cannot give up their hypocritic garments for honourary ones.

And since this is the way things work in Nigeria, the country dips deeper in national crises. We argue unnecesssrily on issues of common sense and we are a country left behind. We are sick. We need healing.

If a few good men and women are given the task of redirecting Nigeria back to the place where we were in december 1965, and if these men and women are honest and have no spirit of hypocrisy, if they are not concerned about getting rich or owning mansions in Dubai, America or London, or sending their children to schools in Ghana or USA, in less than 8 years (2 terms) Nigeria will be back again as one of the best places to live in the world. The people must be orientated about the dangers of hypocrisy and they must be ready to stand with these few good people. That is the hope of Nigeria and Nigerians.

2017: Yet Another Disappointing Year In Naija

The truth is always a bitter pill. For as long as we continue to lie, pretend, play to the gallery, hope and follow blindly that the unitary system of government will get us somewhere, these outcomes (pain, anguish, sorrow and disappointments) to different degrees will remain our common denominators.

We have not declared an official war in Nigeria but we live in a war situation everyday of our lives.

2017: Yet Another Disappointing Year For Naija

By Adeola Aderounmu

Adeola dec 2017

This is my evaluation of 2017.

The year 2017 turned out to be a very devastating one for several millions of Nigerians.

The sad chapters in the annals of this (should-have-been-great) country got longer.

This country Nigeria was destined for greatness as a conglomeration of regions but it had since 1966 remained trapped in a unitary system of government that is useless and nonsensical. Subsequently the country was sapped into poverty and penury by the lucky bastards in form of tyrants and criminal politicians who are not keen on reverting the country back to regional system of government.

In recent years l have written a number of ”end of year” messages through my blog posts. For this year and for the previous ones, these posts were written with my heart filled with rage and anger. I am still extremely disappointed in how the country continues to go deeper in hopelessness.

Already in the year 2007, that was 10 years ago, l wrote an article titled Christmas in Hell. The article chronicled my experience in Nigeria in 2006. One december day that year l drove early to a gas station to queue for fuel. It was my turn after about 5-6 hours of wriggling through the queue.

I will never forget the experience because as l waited in the car, l was crying uncontrollably. I cried for Nigeria. I cried for the suffering and devastation in the land. I cried for all the ignorant people and even the knowledgeable people who together were suffering, celebrating and smiling.

A few hours to that agonising experience, I’d flown into Lagos from Sweden where l could drive to a gas station, fill my car with fuel and pay by credit card and drive away in zero time. Then l came to a country flowing with oil and other uncountable natural resources and l had to queue for more than 5 precious hours of my life. I cried until there were no tears left to shed.

These types of experiences which have sadly become recurrent in Nigeria, even since 1977, showed that Nigeria is one of the worst places to live in the world. We have not declared an official war in Nigeria but we live in a war situation everyday of our lives.

In our country Nigeria, the people have completely lost it. There are no common interests for a national agenda and the political restructuring of the system has not been taken seriously so that prosperity and wellness can be in focus. If we restructure Nigeria today,  perhaps 50 years from now the generation of people that would be called Nigerians can be happy and fulfilled.

Unfortunately, the present Nigerian system continues to promote survival of the fittest. The system thrives as if we are in a rat race. The system runs a manual that ensures that people prosper either through some elements of luck or by connections to the largely corrupt and fraudulent elites and politicians. There are rare rewards for excellence and honesty.

The system breeds hatred in the hearts of men and women. The system ensures that there is a struggle between people in such a way that one group of people under the excuse of the slightest provocation would not hesitate to kill or main the other group. It’s still about the survival of the fittest. There are too many examples of people killing one another instead of negotiating and finding a common solutions to problems.

The effects of more nearly 60 years of bad rulership in Nigeria are too numerous to state.

In fact the present government is full of propaganda and cannot see anything wrong with all its failures and shortcomings. It’s that type of government comprising people who do not see beyond their noses. For, ordinary common sense dictates that the bulk always stop at the door of the person who is assumed responsible for the task (done or undone).

Buhari is the Minister of petroleum resources. He is the ruler of Nigeria. Irrespective of his lines of defenses, the shortage of fuel in 2017 means that the government has failed in performing one of his statutory obligations to the citizens of Nigeria.

But Buhari has been here many times before in his life. He was the Minister of Petroleum in 1977 and Nigeria had fuel shortages then. It remains to be seen if this shortage will lead to increase in the price of petrol per liter in Nigeria.

How long can Nigerians continue to tolerate failures and a system of government that seals more than 100m people to a permanent life of poverty and impoverishment? How long will everybody continue to hope and pray that in a system that is malfunctioning, that some divine intervention will be their hope for a happy life?

It’s complete insanity to hope on divine intervention.

Nigeria is not working and drastic measures need to be taken to turn things around. The most evident sign of failure is that one person cannot steer Nigeria. In how many ways do we want some evidence that this is not going to be possible?

Obsanjo failed, Yar Adua failed, Goodluck Jonathan failed and Buhari has already failed. What other signs do we need to know that we must try something else? That we need back regional government.

Just to ensure that l bring this article to an end, my suggestion is for the young people of this country to come together and wrestle their future and the future of their children and unborn grandchildren from the status quo.

You don’t need PDP or APC in 2019. You need to go back to your regions and harness the best brain to move things forward. Nigerian youths need to throw away all their affiliations to PDP and APC. There is no difference between the two parites. The politicians cross party lines annually because of what they will eat and gain. They have no ideologies to bind them. The people can remain slaves in Nigeria for all the politicians care!

 

There is no future with either the APC or the PDP.

With the numerical advantage on the side of the youth, they need to do something and very quickly too.

2018 will come with new opportunities and new challenges, the young people must unite and wrestle this country from the criminals in power across the country!

Atiku Is Not Fit To Rule Nigeria

In 2006/2007 the police (EFCC) and the judiciary had more than enough to pursue the criminal offences of both Obasanjo and Atiku. But nothing happened. These arms of government are totally useless.

By Adeola Aderounmu

If we back track to 2006/2007, that time when Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo was bidding for a third-term and spending billions of naira of taxpayers monies to bribe senators and legislators, we will also remember that the resistance to that bid was headed by his deputy, one Atiku Abubakar.

At that time Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo had turned the EFCC in the hands of Nuhu Ribadu to a tool of witch-hunting instead of the cleansing for which it was intended. So he turned the EFCC on his deputy but it was an incomplete process because no one was arrested or prosecuted. The EFCC published details of the criminal offences of Mr. Atiku and did so almost daily in various newspapers in Nigeria.

In the fight back, MR. Atiku’s media aides did a fine job. They dug deep into the criminal records of Olusegun Obasanjo and also made sure that these criminal records ended up the pages of the newspapers.

So for several months, Nigerians enjoyed a free soap opera.

The two men who were supposed to lead Nigeria were consumed by their quest for power, Obasanjo for the 4th term actually having been a dictator/tyrant in the 1970s.

Atiku won the fight because Olusegun Obasanjo did not get a civilian 3rd term in office. Majority of Nigerians were against the idea because it would disrupt the already dysfunctional constitution-one that had already ensure that majority of Nigerians are poverty stricken even to this date!

The saddest thing, from my perspective, is that when Yar Adua became the president of Nigeria in 2007, Nigerians went to sleep as if nothing had hapened.

The Nigerian Media is a piece of rubbish.

The Nigerian police is the biggest joke in the world.

The Nigerian judiciary, for me, is absolute nonsense and ingredients!

The media needed to pepper the system and the people. It failed, and even now still sleeping!

The police ought to have utilised the documents that were released by both Obasanjo and Atiku because they are hard evidence on each other’s criminalities. They both showed why the other person was a thief.

The Judiciary and the police had more than enough to pursue the criminal offences of both Obasanjo and Atiku. But nothing happened.

Nothing concrete had taken place in Nigeria’s civilian regimes to put criminals and thieves behind bars even in the faces of hard evidence.

Now we hear that Atiku is a top notch for the 2019 elections. He is aiming to become the president of Nigeria.

Nigeria is one of the few countries on earth where known criminals achieve their political ambitions. I don’t need a reply for this article. I don’t need a rejoinder. I am so sick of the Nigerian political system where people try one way or the other to justify why we must coninue to run the political system we have and why every four years we must queue behind a thief.

Once, Obasanjo had boasted that Atiku will never become the president of Nigeria. So far, this remain the case. I don’t know if there is a settlement between them now or if one had gone behind to beg the other.

In Nigeria’s politics, no enemy is permanent. It is the interest (to seek power and to steal from the commonwealth)  that is permanent. That is why today APC government is full of looters and criminals from 1999 and earlier regimes.

As soon as Atiku’s interest came up again, the Nigerian Media owed Nigeria and humanity a re-publication of all the crimes that were made public by Obasanjo’s camp. They need to open the EFCC files and tell him why he needed to first go to court than to try to seek a return to the seat of corruption in Abuja.

They must re-publish those allegations and support them with the documents so that young people can see how Nigerian politicians have stolen their future even before they were born and whilst they were growing up.

People like me cannot prove these crimes, we have our limitations. Those who have access to the criminal files and offences and do not open them to the public and media will never know peace.

It is such duties that the media owed the people: to investigate, to bring back memories that could help to save the children yet unborn from these old scavengers.

For, once a criminal is allowed back to the seat of government, this entire circus will continue and suffering will persist in the land.

Atiku in my records is a criminal, just the same way as his boss  Obasanjo was. They both made this clear in their roforofo fight. So this is not something l made up. They told us themselves!

Nigerians need to thank Obasanjo for his misadventure, his 3rd term quest which we together with Atiku made sure never came to pass. But Obasanjo will deny this 3rd term bid until the end of time. We don’t care because it does not matter anymore. The other pain left from that was the ghana must go bags that went to the sena-thieves and legis-looters.

That Atiku, like 99% of other Nigerian politicians, is a free man is a failure of the Nigerian police, the Nigerian judiciary and the Nigerian law system.

So don’t blame the people who classify the Nigerian police as the worst police in the world. There are so many reasons for that including the zero effect of ensuring that politicians are arrested and prosecuted accordingly.

If there is a report tomorrow classifying Nigeria’s judiciary as the worst in the world, l will sign under it. l will, because as long as criminals can vie for office in Nigeria, then we can as well do away with the police and the judiciary. Why do we have police and lawyers when criminals are what we get in public service?

A lot of people in Nigeria settle for criminals in political offices because of the anomaly that has become the normal thing. That is there are no saints in Nigerian politics and since the law is ineffective in dealing with looters and criminals in government, the people have accepted the situation.

The consequences are huge. Nigeria is withholding one of the most tragic mode of existence for humans. Forget about the flashy lives of the rich and the celebrities! More than 100m Nigerians are poor and live in extreme poverty.

Some Nigerians prefer to go and die as slaves in Libya. That summarises the mode of life in Nigeria!

The people think that saints will never emerge on the political platform. The people have accepted criminals to go and come as they like into government offices. The people are easily carried away by the cash that these criminals spread around mostly every four years.

Some fools will come to the social media to defend crooks and looters in goverment. They will ask you, what options do you have? They will ask you, who do you want to be the president? Stupid thinking, stupid questions, senseles mentalities!

The people of Nigerian unlike the people in Sweden or England do not know that their rights and they think that their lives depend on what the politicians do or not do (largely true) but it should be the other way round. The people, if they are upright and thinking straight, should ask accountability from politicians and fire them within 2 to 3 days if accountability is not given.

That is where the people, the media, the police and the judiciary have let the system down in this unified passiveness.

In Nigeria, people continue to choose between different grades of criminals, they call them politicians because they think they don’t have a choice. Nigerians don’t look inward to promote good people and people who can actually change the system for good.

The other sad thing about Nigeria is that since there is absence of accountability and as a result of almost 60 years of stupid leadership/rulership, the people don’t know what a real government feels like. So, even when a good person is put into government, the system corrupts the person and he or she start to steal or loot.

A friend once told me that if any person in public office does not conform to these criminalities, that the person will be killed or gotten rid off one way or the other.

That is why today, in many government offices, there is sharing of bonuses every Friday or other regular intervals. I mean there is a lot of loose cash in the Nigerian economy that it appears everybody is crazy and corrupt.

In any case, Atiku can continue to exercise his rights for as long as the useless system of government in Nigeria permits him. He is not alone, l always say 99,9% of Nigerian politicians are criminals/looters and it’s so true.

The system of government in Nigeria must change. If we restructure the political landscape and make the president a ceremonial and figure-head position, the corruption and even the urge to become a president will likely disappear. Now everybody wants to become the president or the governor because of the lawlessness in the land  and the useless constitution on which Nigeria runs.

If Nigeria returns to regional government, Atiku will be vying to become a regional leader and l am sure the sharia law will cut off his hands if he is found guilty.

A regional form of government will bring about healthy competition among the various regions in Nigeria and any region lacking behind will ask for the heads of its custodians.

The regional system of government is the most promising option for Nigeria. The other option which is also growing nowadays is the outright dissolution of Nigeria.

One day the people will be pushed to the wall, they will take the laws into their hands too and they will chase the corrupt politicians, catch up with them and send them into exile or out of this world.

Nigerians, the ordinary citizens are hungry, angry, frustrated and see no meaning with life. Again, that is why crazy and lawless Libya is an option. I am sure there are Nigerians in Yemen and Afghanistan looking for ways to survive when we have a state governor who can steal 300 billion naira or more at this very minute and walk free!

The politicians are looting, living large, sending their children around the world, buying houses around the world and doing what they like with taxpayers monies. These crazy ways will stop. These crazy things will come to an end. I don’t know when, but l don’t think Nigeria will continue for another 60 years of criminals ruling and making the people slaves in their homeland and in places like UAE and Libya.

Nigerians must see the 2019 elections as an opportunity for 2 things.

One, push for political changes before the elections so that regions re-emerged no matter the opportunity cost. There is a need to pause this nonsense APC-PDP Dilemma deluxe.

Two, for once in our life time, look for saints, good people and visioners to move the respective regions forward.

If we recycle criminals in 2019, if we recycle those who became rich stealing from us (people who became businessmen/women after looting the treasuries around the country) and if we maintain the currrent system of government, then it is just another cycle of idiocy. Nigeria will remain a country heading nowhere.
