Yet Another Generation Wasting Away
By Adeola Aderounmu
I cannot keep this any longer. On so many WhatsApp group where I belong, I see chats where my mates and people that I know are arguing about Atiku, Obi and Tinubu. These people that my mates and distant friends are arguing about are 3 of the several criminals who have stolen monies or looted monies in different capacities while pretending to be serving a state or the federal government.
For more than 2 decades, one of the cruxes of my essays have been “not settling for one evil over the other”. But still, someone will ask me, who do you support then? Stupid! It’s the electorates…!
It is just a combination of collective amnesia and collective deformed mental capacity that would make more than 100 million people to stupidly and aggressively pursue the sustenance of the British colony that enslaved their grandparents, their parents and them. Whose responsibility is it to break the chain of colonialism and slavery? Whose?
For so many years now, Biafra wanted to be an independent country. For some years now, The Yoruba country that was prosperous before the invasion of the colonial thugs have been trying to regroup to re-establish herself. The Middle-Belt and the Niger Delta have also tried without success to disentangle themselves from the strings of colonialism and now Fulanization.
If there is something worth dying for today, it is for the re-establishment of the civilizations that were destroyed by the invaders from Europe and the Arab world. But my friends, my classmates and my distant friends think that it is not their responsibility to prepare a free country for their children to inherit. They have not sat down for once to think about the possibility of the prosperous lives that our grandchildren and future generations can enjoy when we are gone.
Their silly mind is about today and now. They campaign for criminals in APC, PDP and the so called Labour Party. More than 100 million people are working hard to sustain colonization, slavery and intense terrorism that have wiped away many lives already.
In 2022 “Nigeria”, there should not even be anything called APC or PDP. Almost all the politicians in these political organizations are criminals. So, if there was proper law and order in the first place, all of them should be in prison cooling off. But they are all over the place because the entire population became zombies.
Take a look also at the propaganda machines they set in place. You see criminals like Femi-Fani Kayode, Festus Keyamo and Reno Omokri jumping up and down like rats jumping over glue. In a normal country that we can build for ourselves in Biafra, Yoruba Country, Arewa, Nigerl Delta and the Middle Belt, all these criminals will be locked behind bars forever so that civilization that move forward.
For more than 60 years, Nigeria-the failed entity put together by British thugs-continue to produce different sets of criminals and the people stupidly think that things will be better. Today, that country Nigeria is probably the worst place to be born or live in the whole world.
There is nothing I am going to write today that I did not write 20 years ago when I wrote Why Politicians Steal.
But it pains me, it hurt me that as my generation approaches its prime and soon exit, we have wasted yet another generation.
I do hope that some brave people in a certain generation will arise and free themselves and generations unborn from the slave camp called Nigeria. I will keep the hope alive for as long as a I live.
