Keeping Up With Nigeria is Pretty Hard…

Adeola Aderounmu

Sometimes, I try to pretend like I don’t really care about Nigeria. Sometimes, I feel deep hatred for the crazy people ruling and ruining the country. Sometimes I feel the flow of nationalism in my vein and solidarity takes over.

Whatever the feeling, frustration soon set in for my inability to wipe away all the useless people in and around power across Nigeria.

These fools in the old and new PDP and across all the useless major political parties in Nigeria stir an irreversible hatred for Nigeria in me. They and all the public workers in high and low places across Nigeria who have settled to terms that the only way to rule and be ruled in Nigeria is to be a criminal by stealing, looting and neglecting selfless service have tilted my feeling for Nigeria from hopeful to passionate hatred for the general system of things down there. With the type of people ruling and the mentalities of the populace, Nigeria is condemned!

Jonathan has spent the bulk of his time in Aso rock fighting for his political life. This fight is the fight that the people of Nigeria would have fought on his behalf if he had been a worthy ruler after reaching the pinnacle through dubious and criminal ways. No election or selection in the history of Nigeria (except the 1993 elections) has been without criminal activities and diabolic plots.

If a man is good and upright his work and achievements will speak for him. Under Jonathan, corruption was refined and redefined. In this regard, he was simply “impotent”. Just not to look too far, his wife is a critically corrupt woman and her looting activity and wastage of public funds will tear apart the word “probity”.

My hatred for Nigeria is amplified by the type of people trying to unseat Jonathan. Together all these people (Jonathan and the new PDP) ought to be rounded up and speedily PROSECUTED and send to life imprisonment. They are all crooks and criminals.

Nigeria is a country where evil people dictates what will happen and about 200 million zombies carry on from day to day like it’s ok. I would probably become one of these zombies if I return to Nigeria or I would be killed by these fools who want power by all means. Nigeria presents one of the most unusual dilemma of dis-united nations.

It’s an adventure in itself to be called a Nigeria because it is a senseless and loose term in itself. Who is a Nigerian? Where is he/she from?

The answer is that it does not exist-no one is Nigerian and Nigerians don’t come from anywhere. Nigeria is a geographical expression and the main reason for governance in Nigeria is to capture power and wealth and oppress the others.

To be sure, you can ask Obasanjo, Babangida and now Jonathan: what are the plans for “Nigerians” for the next 50-100 years? These fools will not be able to answer you. This is simply because for them, governance means me, me and me. Therefore the term/expression Nigeria/n has been abused, misused and nullified.

In that West African region, life is a struggle and you either make it or die trying.

It is easy to define a people when they have something in common, when they have a plan for now and the future. In essence, you ought to be wary of what your unborn generations are going to face.

In Nigeria everything is about now and now, which is why it is easy for me to call Nigerian rulers mad men and fools. Only fools and mad people are not wary of the need to plan for the future. Only idiots will be elected or selected into office only to become murderers and looters like Babangida and the other rulers across Nigeria.

It is pretty hard to keep up with Nigeria. Many people have given up once they cross the borderline to another country.

Many questioned people like me. Why do you write “shit” about your country? Why don’t you come back to Nigeria and help with the situation? Why don’t you come back to Nigeria and see if you will not be killed?

Some even ask “what is your agenda?

Many of these questions are stupid questions. Some of them are senseless comments!

What I know is that the world’s worst modern slavery is going on in places like Nigeria where the rulers pretend to practise democracy. Nigeria’s form of government is undefinable. If you call it democracy, you need to get a medical checkup in a reputable hospital.

What I see is mad people in and around power and a followership that is absoluetly zombified.

What a useless country! I can bet that more than 90% of the people reading this from Nigeria are using artificial power supply commonly called generators.

Act 2, scene 1 please!

MAY 29 is a Fraud created by the pdp

By Adeola Aderounmu

It is very sad that some Nigerians around the world join the useless celebration of the useless pdp type of democracy. In 1999 Obasanjo came to power in Nigeria under the PDP and he was sworn in on May 29. That does not make May 29 Nigeria’s democracy day.

Obasanjo climbed on the remnant of the glory of June 12 1993 to become a “settle the Yorubas” president. Abiola won on June 12 1993 and he was imprisoned by the illiterate Abacha and murdered by Abdulsalami with the help of Bill Clinton’s messengers who gave Abiola a poison to drink.

People must not forget this and our history must not be distorted. Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation-NIDO continues to act stupidly, childish and moronic when they assemble people around to world to mark May 29 as Nigeria’s Day of Democracy. That is total madness.

To even think of it, is there democracy in Nigeria? The answer is NO!
Votes have never been counted in Nigeria. It is always a settlement case in the end that one group outsmarts the other to claim victory. It depends on who controls the state or federal Electoral group.

The other week 35 governors voted in an election and after 2 weeks, no one is sure who won the election to lead the governors’s forum. In Nigeria it is impossible to count 35 votes! Yet some lame organisations are helping the useless government to celebrate democracy day.

Is there democracy in a country that cannot count 35 votes successfully?

Those who want to highlight the positives with Nigeria should continue to do so. We have our rights to choose on which side of the fence we perch. What will be unforgivable is the clear distortion and misrepresentation of the situation in Nigeria.

To include the madness of the people like Okupe and Abati (the bulldogs of Goodluck Jonathan) is not the part of today’s blog entry. Those ones have lost their minds for the love of money, fame and power. Abati and Okupe are lost dogs. The whistle make no sense to them.

 

Footnote: June 7, 2018. There have been contradictory views on how Abiola died and no one has been charged for his murder. Some now belived he was beaten to death on the orders of the government of Abdulsalami. Whichever version is true, Abiola died under the watch of General Abdulsalami.

Patience and Goodluck Jonathan, Stop Telling Lies..!

By Adeola Aderounmu

A few weeks ago, that should be in January 2013 Nigeria’s ruler Mr. Goodluck Jonathan went on air on CNN to tell the world that electricity has improved in Nigeria.

Specifically he mentioned Lagos and Abuja as places were things have gone better.

In a follow up report Amanpour was able to prove that Goodluck Jonathan lied. Lagosians were interviewed and they completely denied the report that power supply has improved in Lagos.

I’d been listening more to Nigerian Radio in recent weeks and one of the daily programs on many radio stations is that callers are allowed to report traffic and power supply in their area.

Usually you hear very tragic reports about the poor traffic and almost complete absence of electricity.

Nigerians are living in almost complete darkness. It is possible that Nigerians have the worst power supply system in the world. Syria is at war and probably approaching similar situation in some areas of the country.

I wrote a blog sometimes ago describing NEPA as the worst government institution in Africa. I stand by that report. What is more damaging in this situation is that Nigeria’s ruler has become a very serious liar.

In a country where there is no shame that is not unexpected. With all the lies and looting that Goodluck Jonathan has perpetrated, you will be amazed what kind of country Nigeria is. You will be more shocked how Nigerians think really!

In a slightly normal society, even if all of Jonathan’s previous atrocities are covered, the ones that he has openly committed in recent times are enough to chase him out of power by force or by constitutional means. But Nigeria is a very abnormal country where evil reigns and stupidity rules. You’ll hardly find a thing that is normal about the government-its formation and operations.

I remembered when he was on his campaign trail and saying times without number that Nigerians should give him only one term and he would change things around for them. Under Jonathan, corruption got a new high. He gave power and position to the people from his region and they continue the usual process of milking Nigeria, the same atrocities that have crippled a potentially great nation.

It is difficult to comprehend the madness of Nigerian political class. It is even more unbelievable the disconnection that the people are sufferng from, thereby making the country a complicated rat race. Nigerians don’t care about the government and consequently Nigeria was rated as one of the worse places to live in the world. Because of the disconnection mentioned above, the political class and the wealthy see something different from the over 100 million people living in absolute poverty.

Jonathan and his spokespersons can deny anything and everything that Jonathan said on his campaign trails. It will be abnormal if Okupe and Abati do not tell lies. Nigerians may die of shock if the politicians and their handlers become truthful.

Around August 2012 when Patience Jonathan was terrible sick and had to be flown out of the country, the useless Nigerian presidency as usual lied and said that Mrs. Jonathan was on holiday, resting.

But in February 2013, she reportedly wasted N500 million of tax-payers money during a thanksgiving ceremony where she said that she was “dead” for 7 days and that she did 9 surgeries to correct her “unknown ilment”. She did not say exactly what happened to her but she was under the knife 9 times. At the same time, Joanthan, Abati and Mrs. Jonathan’s spokesman (whatever his useless name is) all came out and said that Mrs. Jonathan was resting because she has been tired from her activities. Who send her message?

Anyway, like I mentioned earlier all of these lies and atrocities are enough to pursue Mr. Jonathan out of Aso Rock. But he is there, he reigns over the Kingdom of lies. And some Nigerian think Amanpour went too far? Really? Ask yourself, “how am I thinking”? It’s not that CNN is a saintly organisation but did Jonathan speak the truth?

Nigeria is a fraud manufactured by the British 100 years ago. This country will not make it as a unit. The unitary form of government is a disaster. The overall intelligence of the people called Nigerians is at test. It has always been at test. How can they allow a system that doesn’t work? Nigerians pretend that they love one another whereas the real purpose of their political agenda is self-enrichment.

Nigerians should stop, think and look for the truth. The truth is that the different tribes don’t like one another. Jonathan will continue to lie until his time and days are over. The persons who came before him lied and the ones that are coming after Jonathan will also lie and vanish. The system does not work and will remain rotten.

The people will live hopelessly, believing lies.

Under a regional system of government a man like Obasanjo quite evidently would never have emerged from western Nigeria. He has never won elections in his constituency and the surroundings. But he was Nigeria’s ruler (thrice!) because of the rotten political and military system.

Unitary system has ensured that fools, thugs, idiots, robbers, nonentities and pretenders rule in Nigeria under military and pseudo-democratic dispensations.

The time is now to stop this political nonsense, lies and hypocrisies. The greatest challenge is how to sensitize Nigerians and get them connected to the system. For as long as they remain disconnected as they are now, the lies will continue, the corruption rate will rise, the poverty and absolute failure of the system will become more visible. Nigeria will continue to benefit only the few-the rich and the connected.

With Somalis returning home from around the world, if something drastic is not done, Nigeria will go from one of the worst places to be born on earth to actually becoming the worst place to be born and live.

Obama’s Victory: The Lessons for Nigeria’s Do-Or-Die Politicians

Adeola Aderounmu

The American Electoral System is a modified form of democracy in itself. The people have become used to the system after 200 years and they are satisfied with how it works.

In my country of birth Nigeria one is constantly worried about the nature of the politics. Nigeria’s politics is a disgrace to humanity. It is depicted by lack of common sense and it does not serve the purpose for which it is intended.

Nigeria’s politics is bloody and deadly. It raises violent men and women and suppresses intellectualism.

Nigeria became an independent country in 1960 and since then it has been from grace to grass politically because someone fools and idiots ran the show using violence, arson and aggression.

In very worrying situations, intellectuals have been part of this worrying politics.

It is so sad because Nigerians are not ready or willing to change their violent democratic principles.

These imaginary headlines are so true and sad.

Nigeria will not have a free and fair election in the nearest future because the political structures are weak and the system of government is very sickling.

True federalism is needed and there is an urgent need to take power away from the center.

The people of Nigeria actually need a referendum to decide on the future of the British creation. This is why Biafra will never go away no matter how much it is suppressed by the reigning gangsters in Abuja.

The poverty in Nigeria is tied to the recklessness of the political status quo that promotes nepotism and total corruption. Total corruption is the state where almost everything in a system is corrupt and where the mentality of attaining sufficiency and happiness are tied to malpractice and ills rather than common good. This is the situation in Nigeria and it is very sad.

If this generation is too cowardly and too corrupt to make the radical changes, I am convinced that one generation in the future (no matter how long it takes) will make it right. It will never be too late to catch up with the rest of the world if the world doesn’t end today.

Meeet Farouk Lawan, One of several thieves ruling Nigeria

By Adeola Aderounmu

If you are one of those following news from Nigeria, you would have heard about a $3 Million dollar bribe involving one crook called Farouk Lawan who is a member of the Nigerian National Assembly.

Either by trap or whatever means this thief was caught on camera collecting a down payment of $600K.

This fool and thief is supposed to be a member of the committee that probed the oil subsidy scam rocking Nigeria under the feeble Jonathan administration. If you are interested in all these useless stories you have to do more goggling and reading of Nigerian newspaper or online news sites.

My own take is that Farouk Lawan is a thief and he is not alone. Almost all Nigerian politicians are thieves because they are involved in giving or taking bribes daily.

Even the oil magnate Otedola who is the other player in this ugly scenario is not a saint but he can claim that he is a businessman and that the problem in the oil industry is the problem of the Nigerian government and not his.

My grievance is with the Nigerian state, a failed aggregation of familiar enemies who are led all the time by tropical gangsters in uniform or mufti.

The other day Obasanjo called all of them (including himself of course) thieves and robbers and some people almost called for his head.

But Obasanjo is right. Nigeria is rulled by robbers and thieves in disguise. He was once one of them and wherever possible he continues to pull the strings to put these thieves and robbers in places.

While Nigeria last the immunity clause is a license to steal and loot. While out of office no one talks about the monies that thieves like Farouk Lawan have stolen. It took the British government to nail the notorious James Ibori who became a governor despite being an ex-convict and a known rogue!

What Farouk Lawan has done is the norm in Nigeria. These crooks who have re-packed themselves as politicians are always stealing money to build houses and empires in Nigeria and abroad.

A camel will go through the eye of a needle before you will find a Nigerian politician or top public servant who does not help himself/herself.

Nigeria is in a hopeless situation because corruption reached a new height under Goodluck Jonathan. The earlier the bunch of thieves in Aso rock and across all government houses in Nigeria are swept away, the better for the future of the unborn generation.

With what they have in Nigeria today, the country is very hopeless. Moreso because Farouk Lawan will walk free the same way Babangida who stole more than 12 billion dollars walked free. Babangida even committed treasonable felony when he cancelled the June 12 1993 presidential elections. In Nigeria it pays to be a political criminal! You steal big and live big. What a country!
