Imagine..!

Imagine if the regional system of government that placed western Nigeria (Yorubaland) ahead of Paris and London in terms of development was never jeopardized for the senseless and meaningless unitary system that persists till date

Imagine if Nigerian politicians are ordinary citizens with decent jobs and liable under the law

Imagine if the children of the rich, poor, politicians, elites and traders attend the same schools in Nigeria or get the same opportunity to attend or choose the same schools

When you are a writer/social critic and you have put pen to paper or punched your keyboards for nearly 2 decades concerning the absence of civilization in Nigeria, a time comes you start to look for new words to express the same frustrations that you have encountered in those 2 decades of writing.

Then, when you think about your other commitments, the ones that actually put food on your table and the ones that actually bring you happiness, you tend to relegate your frustrations about Nigeria and Africa to the background. Isn’t that the essence of life? To be happy.

For the Nigerian government, run mostly by tropical gangsters and criminals since 1960, this is where they want to put you and that is exactly what they want from you. You will give up, become resilient, become useless, get accustomed to stupidity and live the life you didn’t choose, the one you have no control over.

Government in Nigeria is elitist, and, in my opinion, more than 150 million people live as slaves in Nigeria. Living as a common citizen of Nigeria, is still also in my opinion, probably the worst tragedy the world had seen since the end of the second world war.  This had been my point of view even before the rise of the Boko Haram terrorists of the north who started off as the armed wing of the powerful, corrupt, myopic and thoughtless Northern elites. Today Boko Haram is a global threat to peace and stability.

Those who think Nigeria will remain as one country (as l thought too) would have to do a rethink because recent developments have shown that Nigeria cannot last another 60 years of extreme stupidity of governance especially the cluelessness that pervades since 1999. The two major ideologies that have been promoted by tyrant Buhari viz domination of the north and pursuit of Islamic agenda would fast track the disintegration of Nigeria and the eventual collapse of the Fulani empire.

Now, if we go back or pretend to be in 1960 and write some hypotheses on Nigeria, the space regarded as Nigeria today could actually have become the most beautiful place in the world.  Let us imagine a Nigeria where the politicians and policy makers were normal human beings. Let us think or imagine a Nigeria where the citizens were treated with dignity and respect.

Imagine a 1960 to 2020 Nigeria:

1. Where all the citizens: politicians, elites, middle class and low class:

  • go to the same supermarket/market to shop
  • go to the same government hospitals for health care delivery

2. Where all the children of the rich, poor, politicians, elites and traders

  • attend the same schools in Nigeria
  • get the same opportunity to attend or choose the same schools

3. Where all the citizens irrespective of positions in the society live in decent accommodations with constant electricity and water supply.

4. Where the roads and railways are standard constructions and maintained annually or as stipulated by the contract awards.

5. Where the judiciary is functional and where are there no criminal immunity clause in the constitution.

6. Where politicians are ordinary citizens with decent jobs and liable under the law

7. Where foreign religions like Christianity and lslam were never allowed to infiltrate government businesses but kept at home as private convictions

8.Where the citizens, when oppressed had the guts to shut down undesirable government with protests within 48-72 hours.

9. Where the regional system of government that placed western Nigeria ahead of Paris and London in terms of development was never jeopardized for the senseless and meaningless unitary system that persists till date

10.Where dignity of labour and merits were never sacrificed at the altar of senseless national character that brought complete fools, idiots and morons to national limelight

11.Where due to the sustenance of the regional government, every Dick, Tom and Harry didn’t need to flock to Lagos (old capital) or western Nigeria to destroy and render the limited infrastructure worthless.

12. Where every region and state is viable, developed at own pace, offered housing and employment to its graduates and other citizens with skilled and unskilled abilities.

13. Where regardless of political affiliation, government existed as a continuum even under the useless unitary system.

I could go on to tell you what to imagine between 1960 and 2020. I am sure you have your own imaginations too. We may even differ on certain issues.

However, l am convinced that the sum of the imaginations is that if Nigeria was not derailed, especially since the two useless coups of 1966, the country would have become the best place to live. You know the story of the desert that became Dubai. That country should be trailing western Nigeria today. Even China should be behind eastern Nigerian in terms of manufacturing and production if Nigeria had politicians and policy makers with a quarter of the human brain cells for normal functioning.

Presently, the tragedy of Nigeria would persist if the different nations entrapped within Nigeria do not rescue themselves by either acquiring autonomy or through the complete disintegration of the terror-infected country. It is certain that a certain generation would fight for its own freedom and break away from the tragedy called Nigeria today.

The tragedy of the aging population/generation included, among others, the turning of complete blind eyes to the potentials of totally destroying the useless unitary system that recycles stupid and senseless people at the helm of affairs. For example, Buhari has no intellectual capacity to lead a country. It is just laughable and stupid to see complete fools ruling Nigeria. Where is the common sense? Buhari was not the first bigot to rule Nigeria but he took the bar of cluelessness and brainlessness beyond human comprehension.

Today, belonging to APC or PDP doesn’t make sense also as events from 1999 have shown. On a personal note, I am now sure that l will die seeking answers and wondering why Nigerians compare evil to evil. Why compare APC to PDP? What is the difference between them? It is the acceptance of different shades of evil and incompetence that strengthened morons in Nigerian politics.

The challenges are huge, and the current system must be downed for the future to emerge.

This is where Nigeria is today, and this is the biggest challenge for Nigeria in 2020 and beyond.

Even if Buhari was selected or elected by Nigeria’s useless democratic process, there is no golden rule that states that slavery must persist at all cost. Something needs to give way, not only for the slight benefits of entrapped 200 million people, but for the full benefits of the unborn generations that will occupy the geographical space. They need to know that some people paved the way for their freedom, for their rights to live the lives that they will choose.

It is time to end the laughing stock called Nigeria. It is absolutely a disgrace to the dark-skinned race and definitely not a representation of the intellectual capacity of who we were and who we ought to become.

Why Buhari’s Hellish Reign Must End….Now!

Buhari is the same man who called non-Fulanis baboons and threatened to soak them in blood. This is the same man who said he would stop at nothing to make sure that sharia is implemented all over Nigeria. He has brought a sharia judge to see over our affairs. Buhari was the same man who said that an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the north. Then we are wondering why Boko Haram terrorists are released so that they can continue to kill, maim and rape.

Why Buhari’s Hellish Reign Must End….Now!

(Beyond the reign of clueless Buhari)

By Adeola Aderounmu

As l looked through my notes from the 25th of January 2020, the points l scribbled down (especially the necessity of ending the Buhari-APC mandate) are already making waves in Nigeria but l still find it an obligation to write them on my blog for the sake of posterity.

wp-15805868645574117886431732398927.jpg

Need l remind you that if this present generation of Nigeria fail to take to the streets in their hundreds of millions to change the course of history, it would be a self-inflicted lifelong slavery and it would be by choice. Therefore, in my posts, l have also found it necessary to address the unborn generations because they need to know what their parents failed at and try their possible best to set themselves free from slavery.

In the early days of the Buhari-APC mandate, l was out early to flag the warnings about the error that we made collectively believing that Buhari-Osinbajo-APC would “change” Nigeria. Earlier, for 16 years (1999-2015), it was the PDP that plundered Nigeria and made a complete mess of our lives. So, we thought the problem was the PDP.

But when APC emerged, it had a lot of PDP members who crossed the carpets. To cut that story short, in the last 2 decades, it is now clear that there are no differences between the APC and the PDP politicians. The most obvious evidence to this statement is the failure of the APC government since 2015. Please read my blog since 2015 for more details.

Where are we now?

We are at a point where the normal people of Nigeria from all aspects of life need to get something straight.

Nigeria is not going to make it as a country, NEVER. The evidence abounds especially since 1999 when pseudo-democracy was brought back in by the military.

Nigeria must revert back to the system of government she had before 1966. It was in 1966 that 2 useless coups derailed the functional system of government in Nigeria. As it is now, even that system of government is threatened by the outright disintegration of Nigeria. Invariably, reverting back to that system of government would lead to the emergence of the nations within Nigeria having control over their own resources. It must be stated that unless we get to this point of resource and wealth control, Nigeria will remain a country controlled by criminal-elites who are now gathered as vultures in both apc and pdp.

Our major hurdle in Nigeria today is how to demolish both apc and pdp to allow the emergence of nations within Nigeria so that every region can control its resources and decide how to develop or “not develop”.

To cross that hurdle, we must fight take out this evil regime led by Buhari. Buhari is promoting a Fulani expansion agenda and the evidence abound in the displacement and genocide of indigenes across the country. Buhari and his security chiefs are northerners, probably the most significant single evidence that Buhari wants the Fulanis to take over the entire country.

How did Nigerian end up with Buhari in power? It is a mystery. This is a man who called non-Fulanis baboons and threatened to soak them in blood. This is the same man who said he would stop at nothing to make sure that sharia is implemented all over Nigeria. He has brought a sharia judge to see over our affairs. Buhari was the same man who said that an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the north. Then we are wondering why Boko Haram terrorists are released so that they can continue to kill, maim and rape.

Are we dumb? Are we foolish? If the answer is yes, then we deserved Buhari. If the answer is no, then give me one good reason why a clueless and senile person like Buhari should stay 1 hour longer as the terrorist ruler of almost 200 million people.

 

The differences between the north of Nigeria and the rest of the country are now irreconcilable, they (the terrorist group called Miyetti Allah) even called us primitive which may be partially correct considering the fact that a professor like Osinbajo agreed to be assistant to an illiterate like Buhari or that a learned man like Tinubu is still fighting nail and tooth to keep Buhari-APC terror mandate intact.

 

I think you already understand my points.

 

  • Buhari is not fit to rule Nigeria. He cannot stay 1 hour longer!
  • Nigeria is going nowhere with the mindset of the North that the rest of us are their slaves.
  • Nigeria is expired and it is time again to revert to the nations within Nigeria. Each Nation within Nigeria has the fundamental rights to control its resources. It is time.
  • The nations within Nigeria do not need a war. They only need to go their separate ways and compete for glory and development on friendly bases. Na by force ni?

 

If you think that the solutions to Nigeria’s problems lie with APC or PDP, you probably need a brain transplant to understand the nature of the problem. You are probably one of the less than 1% enjoying the status quo, the dominance of the elites and the enslavement of the populace.

 

Stay on track. We must get Buhari and APC out of the way. The solution is not PDP. The solution is not Abuja politics. The solution to our problems lie at the various regions. That is why we must all return to our tents and rebuild.

Yorubas Have Taken The First Step To Secure Western Nigeria

By Adeola Aderounmu

I am not going to write an epistle.

Freedom is never given on a platter of gold. This step must stand and must be the first in a series of steps if The Great Yoruba Nation wants to ever return to her enviable position among nations, just the way it was up to the 1950s.

Watch and Listen!

Yorubaland: Going…Going…?

Young Yorubas are totally distracted. They are busy singing and dancing, mostly to useless songs, here and there. They are on the social media, mostly not making sense. The politicians are selling Yorubaland in the name of nonsensical 2023 political ambitions.

Who are these bastard politicians of Yorubaland?

Yorubaland: Going, Going, ?

By Adeola Aderounmu

wp-15772666453408374043876585481217.jpg

It appears that Yorubaland, the land of our ancestors is up for grab. Let me explain.

I felt so insulted when the Fulani herdsmen started to terrorize the citizens of Ogun State and l must admit l had not followed the development to know what is going on now. Ogun state, my ancestral home, is of great concern to me. So, l’ll surely do more to find out what is going on.

If you are a concerned Yoruba citizen, you should be worried like l am now and we should be asking questions. What is going on, on our ancestral soil? What is going on in Western Nigeria? This is a region that our ancestors fought so hard to protect so that we may have a home.

We are struggling to keep cosmopolitan Lagos as many theorists are coming up with their stupid ideas of who owns Lagos. We face a lot of insults from every dick, tom, harry and lagoswannabe about our ancestral home and land.

The biggest insult has been inflicted on us in Ekiti State. The Fulani herdsmen, a terrorist group, hoisted their flags in Ekiti State. None of my Ekiti friends have written to me to express concerns. No one in the chat groups is talking about this.

Young Yorubas are out partying and dancing to all sorts of nonsense. Those who are not dancing useless dances are praying about everything. What a waste of life? The people who want to conquer you don’t just pray to their imported Arabian god, they also do something about it. They march to your land, they kill your fathers, they rape your mothers and daughters and instill fear in your minds.

You are doing nothing to protect your land, your ancestral home. It may not matter so much to you now, but you are doing a great disservice to the generations unborn. They would be subdued, and they would live as slaves (like you are) and even worse they’ll become second class citizens on their ancestral land.

wp-15777323696781766734708111727288.jpg

 

This is what the Fulanis have done over the years. Historically, they are an ethnic group fond of conquest especially when left unchallenged and on a free rampage.

The Yoruba politicians have totally become bastards in their persons and attitudes. They are the culprits responsible for the bastardization of our land. They are moles in our midst and they will never be the source of the Yoruba rejuvenation.

Tinubu, Baba Kekere, Fayemi and Amosun all have their eyes on the 2023 presidency or vice-presidency. The last thing on their minds right now is the protection of the Yoruba race or the defense of the Yoruba Empire.

On a daily basis, these bastards are seen in or around Aso Rock licking the balls of the Fulanis. These are the cowards of Yorubaland. They will not defend their people because of their selfish political ambitions. When not in Aso rock, they are on the trails of the Fulanis in London and elsewhere partying and merrying while those blood thirsty people send their herdsmen on the physical conquest of Yorubaland.

The Yoruba race have never had it so bad. We are now represented by pure leeches and relentlessly foolish people who call themselves politicians. The Yorubas have never had it so damning. Unprotected. Denied. Lost in identity. Confused. Divided. Lost in purpose. Left to rot at the hands, blades, daggers and bullets of the enemy. This is an abomination!

The Fulani herdsmen should never have their flag flying for 1 minute on our ancestral home. Those who did should never have lasted 6 hours on our soil. They should have been packaged in trailers and sent up north to their terrorist zone.

It was really an eye sore to see Fayemi, the so-called coward governor of Ekiti State romancing Buhari at the time that terrorist herdsmen hoist their flags on the land where he is the chief security officer. Does Mr. Fayemi know what would happen to Yoruba citizens who dare to fly Oodua’s flag anywhere in Northern Nigeria. They would be sent back to the west in body bags!

Fayemi is not going to protect the people of Ekiti State or any part of Yoruba land because he wants to become the president of Nigeria in 2023. Is he sure there would be a Nigeria in 2023? The Yoruba people are not telling their politicians the truths that they need to hear. What is wrong with us?

In a recent article, l stated that my essays are now for the future generation because the present generation of Nigerians especially those from western Nigerian willfully living as slaves on their motherland have chosen not to see or understand how their lives can be changed for the better by aggressively and collectively in one voice pursuing the agenda that would change the course of history. Yorubas, we need to act now so that our children and grandchildren can live prosperously.

wp-15777312662766606664982313301463.jpg

 

The unitary system of government has not worked since 1966. It is pure madness and stupidity to think it will ever work. We need the Nigeria that existed before the two useless coups of 1966. The alternative is the outright disintegration of the expired British colony. It is just common sense that would set the people of Nigeria free. Common sense has proven to be scarce since 1966, sadly.

I hope this article would be shared far and wide because somebody needs to wake up to defend Yorubaland. We need to secure Yoruba land before any form of dialogue or diplomacy can be applied. Our land back first, then dialogue later! There is no time to waste and we need to stop talking and start acting.

The custodians of our tradition, our culture, our heritage and our survival ought to get out of their shells and secure the entire perimeter and geometrical area of Yorubaland. We don’t need prayer warriors, we need field marshals of wars and we need the artillery to defend our territory. Stop beating about the bush or bushes.

Those who don’t see problems with the gradual occupation of our land won’t be here 100 or 200 years from now when the invasion and occupation would be total if we don’t stop all these systematic and aggressive takeovers. Every piece of land that has been taken must be retrieved.

It is time for the Yorubas that have balls to tell terrorist Buhari to his face that this ain’t right and it ain’t gonna continue. We need men with balls to tell Buhari that he is a terrorist and his terrorist or fulanisation agenda cannot go unabated. This is what it is. Why are we afraid to unite and fight the evil once and for all? What is wrong with us?

Young Yorubas cannot and should never rely on the likes of Tinubu or Fayemi, or Amosun. They are unwise because of ordinary bread.

Even as l call on the custodians of our race, l am aware of the damage that politics and people like Tinubu have done to the traditional institutions. Our Obas and Chiefs are now paying homage to touts especially in Lagos. This is so sad, so disheartening.

Who is out there that can save the Yoruba race? Young Yorubas need to lend themselves and one another senses. As you sing and dance to all the manners of useless songs this yuletide, your ancestral home is diminishing. You may feel less concerned, but the generations unborn are slipping into everlasting slavery. They will mess up your graves and curse the days of their lives too.

A stitch in time saves nine. In all states where the politicians are ball suckers, our people in Yoruba land need to know that they are their own protectors. You cannot laugh at another man’s misfortune now because it may be your turn tomorrow. It is better to start organizing ourselves now before it is too late. In unity we will find strength to defend ourselves and defeat the enemy encroaching on our ancestral land

We must be prepared. No other tribes or ethnic groups should be flying their useless, rotten, terrorist-infected flags on Yorubaland. We must unite by all means and fight this evil out of our land. It is now or never.

The Man Who Is Responsible For Nothing

Don’t ask me how we think in Nigeria. I am struggling with the answer too.  We may have to resurrect John Dewey-the author of the book “How We Think”.

But think about this:

A professor was asked to assist a criminal to rule Nigeria. On the night of the televised debate, Osinbajo-the professor, kept screaming “he (Buhari) doesn’t know, he doesn’t know”. Buhari does not even know the meaning of animal husbandry, amongst many other simple things. Is Nigeria not a scam? Why is everybody quiet?

The Man Who Is Responsible For Nothing

By Adeola Aderounmu

20191213_081547153510796382790181.jpg

Since 2015, Nigeria has been led by the APC-Buhari mandate, probably the most useless and clueless government ever. The useless PDP reign between 1999 and 2015 now looks messianic. The present ruler of Nigeria, Buhari, is a man who is responsible for nothing!

General Buhari was helped and rigged into power largely by the help of Bola Tinubu and Olusegun Obasanjo. When Buhari had tried previously with his might, he failed woefully on at least 3 or 4 occasions. His alliance with the South-West eventually brought him back to power in 2015. His first illegal stint was through treasonable act-as a cruel, thoughtless and extreme dictator in 1983.

The 2015 arrangement and ascension to power is a very laughable one as a professor of law, one Yemi Osinbajo was made his deputy. Buhari has no standard, formal education and he forged his certificates on at least 2 occasions.  Those offences made Buhari not only guilty of treasonable felony (as a coup plotter) but other criminal offences punishable by imprisonment. Invariably, a criminal is ruling Nigeria (again) since 2015.

A professor was asked to assist a criminal to rule Nigeria!!!

Don’t ask me how we think in Nigeria. I am struggling with that too. For as long as he would live, Buhari will never develop intellectual cognitivism to rule a clan, let alone a village. But he is the ruler of Nigeria. The implications are telling and would be useful for students of history and for the future of Nigeria, if she would ever emerge from this modern slavery.

It is now time to continue to write all we know about Buhari. This is important so that history is not distorted and since Nigerians have very short memories and are eager to move on no matter the problems, it is imperative that we document some issues before they are left unattended.

There is no way Buhari could have escaped this bashing because we are in the era of open network and the print media is beyond the newspapers or television stations that would be closed down if they dare to write freely.

Since 1999 when Nigeria returned to this pseudo-democracy, some of us have been here to express our views. There is no government in the world that can stop the freedom of the open press. It won’t happen now, not ever. Buhari and his handlers should just brace up because this press will be here when they are long gone (and be dust), doing what it does best.

At best, Buhari has become a complete nuisance to himself, his handlers and the country called Nigeria. In this essay, l want to describe Buhari as a man who is responsible for nothing. The examples are many, but l will pick a few.

Mrs. Salome Abuh was gruesomely murdered at her residence in Kogi State on November 16. This is a political assassination and it is logical to insinuate that political opponents masterminded the assassination. Even the robbers paraded for the crime have denied involvement. Has anyone heard a speech from Buhari on this assassination under his watch? Any word from the Kogi State governor? APC, just like the PDP is a murderous political party. No sympathy for human life and no acknowledgement of a state or nation in sorrow, no matter the evil perpetrated.

For all that has happened to Omoyele Sowore and the inconveniences his family is put through about the ugly situations, Buhari has pushed the blame to the DSS. It is as if there is a republic of the DSS operating within Nigeria the same way the Boko Haram republic is having a flow in Northern Nigeria.

Buhari is not responsible for the plight of Sowore. He is not responsible for the republic of Boko Haram in northern Nigeria. What is Buhari responsible for? What is Buhari good for? I am sorry for that Femi Adesina, the messenger of the evil regime. I have no time for him. We await his useless book after this nonsense life he is living.

Buhari’s government is not obeying court orders. Whose fault is that?

The Supreme court judges and their judgement on the electoral dispute between Atiku and Buhari is one reason I believe the law profession is fast becoming a useless one in Nigeria. I am not only bewildered by the colonial wigs those old fools have on their heads, l am also never going to recover from the shock of how judgements are bought and paid for in Nigeria.

Shall we not hold Buhari accountable for the sham and shame the judiciary has evolved to since 2015? Has anyone spoken to the Chief Justice of Nigeria in recent days. The chief Justice to be best of my knowledge as a citizen of Oduduwa land is an illiterate. That man, Tanko is dumb and does not know what he is doing. Just like Buhari, he cannot express himself or make himself comprehensible.

The invasion of the court of law by Buhari’s attack dogs’ aka DSS was the final burial of judiciary in Nigeria. Good luck to all present and future lawyers. I am wondering what the f*** purpose they serve when their profession is being rendered useless and worthless, in Nigeria.

Buhari blamed and continues to blame the PDP for all that is wrong with the Nigerian economy since 2015. My positions in 2015 when this crazy government came to power were:

  1. Don’t get things worse than the PDP left it. Worst case scenario, if Nigeria does not get better, don’t let it get worse under your watch
  2. If you have no solutions, you don’t need to contest or promise to fix the problems
  3. If you have no solutions, f*** off, resign and hand over to someone with ideas or knowledge. That is how things work in the developed world.

 

From the look of things, Buhari came to power to serve his selfish interests and to advance the course of the people of northern Nigeria and their brothers from sub-Saharan Africa. He wants to bring every dick, tom and harry to Nigeria from 2020.

Really? Is Buhari normal? My answer is NO! He is not!

I am not going to proliferate my essay with all the abundant evidence to his deadly agenda. You need to get your lazy ass up and follow the changes that have taken place since Buhari became a ruler in 2015.

Buhari is not accepting the responsibility for the economic woes in Nigeria. He has no solutions, but he is holding tight to power. This is the mentality that makes Africa, the most of it anyway, a continent of interest. You see empty brains conquering their people, enslaving them and bringing them to economic ruins and mass poverty. The most amazing part is that the people sit tight and struggle.

Since many African countries were lumped together by the colonialists, the people lack the common front and effrontery to speak in unity and act for a common reason. There is no reason under the sun why a dullard, a man who is responsible for nothing to be ruling or leading the most populous Black country on earth. Buhari is still standing because of the fear of the north, and he moved all the military powers up north both physically and structurally.

Buhari would not have become anything in Oduduwa land because he has limited sense and limited mental capabilities. But in a unitary system of government which Nigeria adopted after the two useless coups of 1966 and since the end of the civil war in 1970, even a stupid person who has no sense can become your chief justice.

So, this is where Nigeria is. People are afraid to rise up because they may be arrested like Sowore, and incarcerated. Buhari has locked up people both openly and in secrets. We are back to the dark days. We never left anyway. We fell to APC and Buhari in 2015, a real con party with a tyrant at the helm.

Invariably in the end, the people get the type of rulers they deserve. There are no true leaders in Nigeria. The elderly and even the young achievers in time constitute themselves to some sort of sycophants and rulers that should be worshipped, obeyed or listened-to.

The problems of Nigeria did not start and will not end at the feet of Buhari. That much l have written about even since the days of Yar’ Adua.

It is of course evident that the unitary system of government is stupid. We are ridiculous in Nigeria because we are running a system of government that doesn’t work since 1966 and we kept at it. I have never seen anything more challenging (mentally) in my entire life. How can you be doing something wrong since 1966 and keep it going. I will never get it!

The other ridiculous thing is that the government is failing not only at the federal level, but also at the state and local levels. It is logical to conclude that these are symptoms of the unitary system. It may also be worth looking closer at this interplay. I don’t know it all.

What l know is that when you have a man who is responsible for nothing leading a useless and stupid system of government, then it is not surprising that the eureka in 2015 was the greatest scam in post-independence Nigeria. Nigeria will never make it under a unitary system of government, APC or PDP. Nigeria will never make if under a block-head who is responsible for nothing.

We can keep praying, our parents did. It seems we have handed over this line of slavery to our  children too.

Fashola’s (Worrisome) Mentality

Let me get it right Mr. Fashola:  when we drive to the point where the roads are not motorable, we should be thankful and drive back home. Or is the government planning to provide air transport from the point where the roads are not motorable? I don’t understand.

Late Pius Adesanmi was right. The shower head will destroy Nigeria and to some point, it may become irreversible.

Fashola’s (Worrisome) Mentality

By Adeola Aderounmu

img_20191107_200506_6662411286485477345620.jpg

First when l saw the headline, l thought Fashola was on some hard drugs. The video that was later circulated made a clarity of what he said.

My mind went straight to late professor Pius Adesanmi’s Parable Of The Shower Head. If you haven’t watched the video, go and look for it especially if you think Fashola was on point. I won’t be your source and reference. The video is free and it is online.

Fashola wants Nigerians to be grateful for the percentage of Nigerian roads that are motorable, that they are even lucky enough to drive to the point where the road now becomes unmotorable. He called that balanced reporting/journalism.

Fashola was talking to a bunch of fools whose salaries and allowances can fix all the economic problems in Nigeria, and possibly Africa. He was up against a group of people who, along with him, have become the slave masters and whose destination in life are not worth more than prisons. But they live large and steal big, daily, courtesy of the useless political arrangements and a dead justice system.

Mr. Fashola has never failed to amuse me. When he was the governor of Lagos State, he hated inputs from Nigerians in diaspora. He told us that he was not the one who sent us abroad. His mentality did not get deformed today. He has a history.

Invariably, in his opinion, our opinions don’t count. It was not a surprise then to visit Lagos and see all sorts of unfinished and abandoned projects littering the entire state after he left office. The rail projects on over-estimated budgets are still fallow and worthless!

In view of his recent comments on Nigerian roads, Mr. Fashola fall short of the standards that one would expect from normal public officers. So, when we drive to the point where the roads are not motorable, we should be thankful and drive back home. Or is the government planning to provide air transport from the point where the roads are not motorable?

Why are our roads bad? There are some countries in the world with negligible number of bad roads. There are some countries in the world that set-in motion maintenance so that the roads never get the chance to become bad. Why do Nigerians roads get bad days, or weeks after they have been constructed? Why are there even so many places without roads despite the fact that people build houses nearby? Who is doing the urban and rural plannings? Are we less intelligent? I have been asking these questions over the years? What is wrong with us?

These are the discussions and arguments that should be going on. Contractors and governments should be made accountable. Heads should be rolling until the minister or the state governors get it right. Is that a mirage?

Indeed, Nigeria is what she is because some people think Fashola’s statement was on point. We have decided that no matter what comes from the shower head even in a 5-star hotel, we can have some water with it anyway. At all at all na im bad-the Nigerian mentality. The Fashola mentality.

The beauty of public opinion, sadly or happily, when evidence is available is the diversity of our interpretations.

As for me, it is very worrisome to have such a mentality.  No sane person should defend a useless federal government. No sane person should defend any useless state government.

This is just about the roads. It is the same mentality that has perforated all spheres of the Nigerian life. We have a long way to freedom. We have a very long way back to the heart of humanity.

No way l stop writing my articles without highlighting the need to revert this country back to a system that actually worked before the two useless coups of 1966. Under this useless unitary system of government, there is no hope for Nigeria.

Yes, no matter the system, we may still be the same people. But it won’t last long before our common sense begins to work again. Right now, our collective intelligence is melted into a national and international summation that does not depict who we are. And for your information, western Nigerian where my ancestors emerged was a trailblazer before those useless coups of 1966. A man of Fashola’s mentality would watch us grow and develop our regions when we re-emerge.

Finally, for this note, there is yet no difference between apc and pdp. Though Jonathan was right about the evil that Buhari has brought to Nigeria, it does not justify the calamities that pdp was also perpetrating. It is still all about the shower heads. Late Pius Adesanmi was right. The shower head will destroy Nigeria and to some point, it may become irreversible.

A Country Called Nigeria (Part 2)

ON BUHARI: He is looking like a zombie, giving support to the Fulanis in terms of communication (radio station) and terror cells ( RUGA settlements). Buhari should be dragged to the war crime tribunal without delay. He is the most dangerous man in Africa today and he rules over 190 m people who seem to be on sedatives.

————————–

Don’t worry about our future. When we start to swear in our leaders in Yorubaland by Sango-the god of thunder, l dare anyone of them to be corrupt or unruly.

Health

Do you know just how bad the state of health provision is in Nigeria? Look at it this way, the so-called president of Nigeria, Mr. Buhari, is an outpatient in a number of hospital in Europe. That is a summary of the state of health provision in Nigeria. The one who is supposed to provide good health to Nigerians in Nigeria seeks medical treatment abroad for himself and his family.

You should be alarmed as much as l am that Nigerians have been caged. For, the moment that happened, Nigerians, who are more than 190 m should have ended such a government in less than 24 hours. Buhari’s government should have been terminated by the people the moment he flew out for treatment. But years after, he is sitting his ass tight and even got re-elected by a fraudulent, non-transparent electoral process. Buhari himself is a fraud.

My point is: how can health services be provided to a people whose ruler does not receive health service in the land? It is not going to happen. Nigeria is the country where you find polio and it is where maternal deaths (or pregnancy-related mortality) remain a world record high.

Malaria still kills children, pregnant women and the old as well as the young in Nigeria. Health issues and any form of accidents are primarily death sentences in Nigeria. Quality health services are rare and expensive. So, a return to good health after an illness or an accident is a miracle in Nigeria and calls for testimonies in churches and mosques.

This is the state of health in Nigeria, a country that provides the rest of the world with the best doctors and nurses there are in the international world.

School and Education

The quality of education in Nigeria, just like the health sector, is also mostly based on money. The elites and the rich pay huge fees to get their children some quality education. There is no equality in the quality of education provided in Nigeria. This means that human beings are not equal in Nigeria and social justice does not exist.

In summary, the public educational system in Nigeria is almost dead. This is a sign of systemic failure of governance. In a recent video that went viral on the internet, we saw students in Port Harcourt who went to school with hand grenades and other firearms. It was an open cult war. Cultism has ripped through the various institutions in Nigeria, public and private.

It appears that schools have become a place to breed hooligans and cultists. Some schools can cause permanent eye disorder when you look at them. They are dilapidated, and rainy days mean no school or school’s out. Public education in Nigeria is a disgrace to humanity. In several blog posts, l have addressed this issue comprehensively and even proffered solutions.

It will take a lot of investments in the educational sector to save the day for Nigeria. Sadly, politics in Nigeria promote laziness, corruption, illiteracy and reward for criminals. If the investments in education must yield results, the above vices must be eliminated and the immunity of criminals in public offices must disappear as early as today. A lot of these things work together to destroy the importance of good education and dignity of labour.

Science, Medicine, Research and Technology

Each of the above can be addressed independently. In my opening comments, l wrote that the problems with Nigeria can be written with a million words. That could happen if we try to dissect the problems with in full details.

These points are closely linked with education and health already highlighted above. If the educational sector gets the required attention and if we really care about the future of the unborn generations, then this is the time to make the leaps in science, medicine, research and technology. We are too far behind as a country and in the various geo-political regions that were destroyed in 1966.

In order for Nigeria to make progress in these areas, urgent measures must be taken to reverse the brain drain that continued to plague the country since the 1980s. We are chasing out our best brains and we are not tapping the best brains that are behind in Nigeria.

Again, all of these things are connected to our politicians who are corrupt, they are stealing all the yearly allocations for these causes, and we the people are looking. Those who believe in Nigeria as a country must save it. Those who have lost faith must also be allowed to determine their future. Who knows what will happen?

Security

Don’t even go there. APC came into power in 2015 against the backdrop of a campaign to end Boko Haram. It was all fallacy. It appears that APC is the sponsor of Boko Haram as the Buhari regime looked back and allowed the terrorists to gain more grounds, killed more people using both soft and hard targets.

The more you investigate Boko Haram, the less you understand of it. Such an insurgency, in my opinion, thrives because the government is not willing to end it brutally. I think it is possible to wipe away Boko Haram from the face of the earth. I just don’t know how many drones it would take, but it is doable.

Recall that Buhari was famously quoted that an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the North when Jonathan was make efforts to curb the terrorist group, notorious for kidnapping and raping women and children. So, how do we think that an army led by Buhari’s men would end the insurgency of Boko Haram? Have we thought well about this?

At the end of 2015 Buhari lied to the whole world when he said that Boko Haram had been technically defeated. What a bloody lie? And what a bold lie for that matter! For that alone, Buhari should have been arrested and tried. But Nigerians allowed the government to run a system where the rulers are untouchable no matter the extent of their crimes. To lie to Nigerians and the world is a criminal act.

The security problems in Nigeria is now very close to what brought about the civil war in 1967. Terrorists have been given all kinds of fanciful names like bandits, herdsmen and hooligans. In terms of security, this is the worst government in the history of Nigeria. The security of lives and property does not exist!

Genocide seems to be playing out in Nigeria. The Fulanis are on a rampage, killing across Nigeria and taking over other people’s ancestral homes. You know what Buhari is doing? He is looking like a zombie, giving support to the Fulanis in terms of communication (radio station) and terror cells (settlements). Buhari should be dragged to the war crime tribunal without delay. He is the most dangerous man in Africa today and he rules over 190 m people who seem to be on sedatives.

 

The Politics. The Future

Nigerian politics is a huge joke. Criminals of all sorts are roaming government houses in the name of immunity. 99.9% of Nigerian politicians are looters and individuals whose sole interest is self-enrichment. To make Nigerian politics a serious matter, the immunity clause must go.

This means that as soon as a person is suspected of illegalities or criminality, the person can step aside and be prosecuted. Even ex-convicts, suspected criminals and people with ill-gotten wealth should not be allowed to contest for public offices. The Nigerian political sphere is filled with different sorts of criminal minds and people suffering from different grades of mental diseases.

Until Nigeria rids its political space of evil minds and dubious characters, the country will continue to parade criminals in all government houses and the country will NEVER, NEVER become a prosperous country for the ordinary citizens.

Another issue that need to be addressed is the similarity of the APC and PDP political parties and the ease of crossing from one political party to another. Ideology is zero and this may not be unconnected to the immunity of the criminals we call politicians.

But it appears that the future of Nigeria is now more uncertain than at any point in time/history.

There are legitimate agitations to split the country. The prime arguments against that is that the people in these regions are the same people running the country down today. What will be different if the country split?

Actually, a lot will change. Prior to the two useless coups of 1966, Western Nigerian for example was ahead of various European and Asian countries in terms of development. When Nigeria was lumped together as one country as an aftermath of a senseless military coup and the civil war that followed, development stagnated in western Nigeria and the Yorubas have not moved an inch forward since 1966.  Imagine the impact of stunted growth since 1966, it is huge.

Agitation for the Oduduwa republic is rife again as much as the IPOB in eastern Nigeria and the Niger Delta Kingdom. We live in a time where self-determination is becoming more common and rampant. A people as large as the Yorubas numbering over 50 million deserve their country and l am in full support of the Oduduwa Kingdom as much as l am in support of the Igbos seeking self-determination without infringing on the rights of the people of the Niger Deltans to determine the control of their lands and resources.

From today henceforth, no matter how much l write about the glory of Nigeria and how well l want Nigeria to be great, my heart is now with the movement that will emancipate my people, my culture and my heritage from the shackles of the Nigerian stupidity.

One way or the other, the Yorubas must negotiate their freedom from the expired British colony because that is the only way for the glory of the children of Oduduwa to become manifest and great.

Don’t worry about our future. When we start to swear in our leaders in Yorubaland by Sango-the god of thunder, l dare anyone of them to be corrupt or unruly.
