The Re-education Of The African

The Re-education Of The African

By Adeola Aderounmu

I have no doubts that we need to educate and re-educate Africans. My blog is not a source of historical facts, but I can reflect on what has been and I have a right to write based on my observations and inspirations.

There is no doubt that we have challenges in Africa. We do.

Sometimes I wish I could go out and preach, not as a lazy religious leader ripping the people of their hard earned monies, but as a preacherman asking the people to look deep into their souls and search within for the meaning of their lives and the significance of their existence in relation to their immediate habitat and in a global context.

In matters of African policy and politics, the intellectuals have been relegated and rendered insignificant. They have been pushed to the background, relegated and made voiceless.

Why do we need to educate and re-educate Africans?

We have lost touch with our culture.

We don’t speak our languages.

We don’t write in our languages. I am Yoruba and have not written Yoruba in several decades. I don’t know how to put marks on Yoruba letters. I am guilty. I need education

We need to teach us our culture and languages.

We need to teach us the goodness of our spiritualities and educate ourselves how to remove the evil part of our spiritualities.

We need to go back to our civilization. It was modern and progressive.

We need to find out why we lost the mind games that brought slavery and colonization to our lands. We shall not make the same mistakes now or in the future.

We need to wear our natural hairs and natural looks.

We need to write our own books and read them along with others. But ours must be the priority.

We need to educate ourselves and our children on the need to work together and build together.

We need the education and the re-education that will bring us glory.

We are AFRICANS.

Our stories and our existence go far beyond the origin of the Bible and Koran.

We owe it to ourselves to find out what went wrong.

I heard a brother asked: how did we fall to the foreign forces if our gods and ancestors were so powerful? It is a stupid question. It is like asking how the lizard got into your room despite the walls and windows. If you know how the lizard got into your room, you know the answer to your foolishness or carelessness.

We must with haste, re-educate everyone.

My generation may not achieve so much, but these things we write will help us and those coming after us to know that AFRICAN is the NUCLEUS of the world.

We need education and re-education.

This short essay does not say it all. I just wanted to wake you up. You’ve been sleeping since you were born.

Wake up and start your own re-education.

Start now!

The Wind, Our Way

Nigerian politicians are criminals. None of them can walk down the street. That is how unsafe they have made Nigeria for themselves and the people.

The Wind, our Way.

By Adeola Aderounmu

How we got here? I could have said no idea. But l know a bit of history and it would shock me if after blogging since 2006 l have not put down most or all of what l know.

What continues to shock me is the existence and persistence of Nigeria. Let me explain. Nigerian politicians are criminals. They are living “good”. In quote because they have stolen monies to splash around in Nigeria and several places around the world whereas Nigeria as a country is a disaster. No Nigerian politician can walk down the street. So, living good would remain in quote.

Those who benefit from the anomalies in Nigeria do not agree that Nigeria is a disaster. But whether they agree or not, they are in a constellation, lumped together with some of the poorest people in the world and probably the most useless government in the world as well. They can argue however or whatever they like, Nigeria and the constitution on which Nigeria is operated is a disgrace to the African race. Any Nigerian intellectual who cannot argue against the 199 constitution is more or less a fool and a selfish soul.

The wind is the way of Nigeria. It is heading for a painful end. The wind should not be our way in Yorubaland. This is the time for Yoruba Omo Oduduwa to work together. We have a choice to steer the course of history and to change it for good.

Those who love Nigeria the way it is and the politicians live in a country plagued by some of the worst infrastructure in the world. Nigeria is decayed. There are personal and principled reasons l have not gone to Nigeria since 2018. I don’t have electricity in my home in Nigeria. The instability of the supply can result to a heart attack. I cannot drive to my house; the roads are not just there. If you live in Festac and try to drive to Agbara, you will understand my points.  Insecurity is a way of life in Nigeria. I don’t sleep well at night. I always fear herdsmen or armed robbers are around the corner. Even during the day, I always have to look over my shoulders.

Now, let’s look at the Nigerian people. How on earth can more than 180m people allow their country to go down? How on earth can the people continue to live in poverty, penury and hopelessness? How can they be so aware of the problems or pretend that they don’t exist? How on earth can more than 180 million people allow the status quo to continue? How?

There are options for Nigeria and Nigerians. When we mention revolution, some are quick to add, can you lead it? Who wants to die?

Really? Who wants to die? That is so funny and ridiculous. Nigerians are dying with very less dignity than cows, chickens and goats! They are kidnapped or slaughtered! They die in road accidents every minute of the day across the country. The police shoot them like games. The soldiers massacre them in manners only seen in war time genocide. Bandits, who are actually terrorists are having free rampages in the North especially. They kill village heads, community leaders, women, men and children. They kidnap politicians and their families. They kill at will.

And somebody is asking….who wants to die? We are all dying already! It is the degree, speed, timing and methods that vary. There are other options because a revolution may still lump up people who are so different in the end such that peace may be elusive even after doing away with the politicians and their accomplices that have brought decay all over the country.

Prior to the amalgamation of Nigeria, there are economically viable kingdoms and regions in what is modern day Nigeria. Even as late as 1966 before the 2 reckless coups by the military, the regions were still viable, progressive, independent and at pace with global development. The poverty, penury and hopelessness of Nigeria today is an indirect effect of the amalgamation of Nigeria and the 1966 coups and a direct effect of the people allowing criminals to dictate the affairs of the country.

That must stop. Resistance must be the new order.

It is time for a new order. Those of us agitating for the freedom of the nations entrapped in Nigeria need to be more aggressive. We cannot be silent and passive anymore. We cannot allow those keeping the status quo to our detriments to keep running the show. It is time for a new order of things.

The politicians and the elites holding Nigeria and Nigerians to ransom don’t care. If they do, they should know that the politics in Nigeria today does not cover the needs of the common man or woman. We can give a million reasons why we need to put an end to Nigeria.

Personally, I lend my support to the emancipation of the Easterners and I hope they put their house in order through unity of purpose and intents. If this comes by Biafra, so be it. For the Yoruba nation or the Oodua Kingdom to which l belong, it is no longer a secret that I will dedicate my time, money and positive actions to the realization of the Oodua Kingdom/Republic. I will channel my efforts primarily through the Ilana Omo Oodua group.

The United Nations is aware of our struggle for freedom. We will be moving ahead hoping to organize a referendum soon. I call on all Yoruba people all over the world to join the struggle for freedom.

We must act in unity for our strengths lie in our togetherness. This is not the time to view one group as superior to the other. This is the time to shelf all personal ambitions and glorification.

The wind is the way of Nigeria. It is heading for a painful end. The wind should not be our way in Yorubaland. This is the time for Yoruba Omo Oduduwa to work together. We have a choice to steer the course of history and to change it for good.

We shall overcome.

A Very Weak And Absent Presidency

Killing her own citizens is the greatest sign of weakness any government can exhibit.

A Very Weak And Absent Presidency

By Adeola Aderounmu

In my post entry before this one, l wrote about the invincible presidency. This is a follow up.

Nothing has improved in Nigeria under the Buhari-APC mandate that conquered the country in 2015.

Less than 24 hours ago, there were reports that more than 60 farmers were attacked by Boko Haram in Borno State. We read that 40 of those farmers were slaughtered. 40 human beings!

Adeola Aderounmu

The presidency under the Buhari-APC mandate is a scam. Nigeria itself is a fraud.

On October 20, 2020, The Nigerian military attacked and massacred unharmed protesters in Lekki, Lagos. For details about the ENDSARS protests that ended in bloodshed across Nigeria, please do a google search for information.

It must be one of the greatest sign of weakness to shoot unharmed protesters, young people whose only fault is demanding an end to police brutality in Nigeria. The young people want a better life. Some of them were massacred by the weak Nigerian army aided by the weak Nigerian presidency. Their lives were taken away from them.

There was a young boy called PELUMI who was also murdered by the Nigerian Police in Lagos state. He had reported days earlier about a Lagos politician who was shooting indiscriminate at residents during the protest. He was an upcoming journalist, a student and the only son of his mother.

His life was sniffed away under the watch of one Jide Sanwoolu the governor of Lagos state.

There is a lot that is going on in Nigeria, most of them wrong things.

I have launched my own hashtag on twitter #invicinblepresidency to let the people releasing all types of statements on behalf of a certain brain-dead buhari that some of us are not idiots and many of us are ready to give our lives once we step on the Nigerian soil.

The thinking that all Nigerians are afraid of dying for the fight for truth and freedom is absolute nonsense. Show me one man or woman who would leave this planet alive and l will stop trying to fight for the freedom of people in Nigeria.

The presidency in Nigeria is disillusioned to think that bullets, massacre and imprisonment of innocent citizens is a sign of threat. That was the rubbish that the Buhari in aso rock was regurgitating in a recent speech. Killing your citizens is the greatest sign of weakness any government can exhibit.

There were other signs of weakness that came to light in the last one month.

The Buhari-apc manadate is not totally restricted inside Aso rock. The so called Buhari and one professor Osinbajo who is the vice president have never left Aso rock to other parts of Nigeria since about February or March 2020.

The useless central bank of Nigeria under whose watch the Naira has become the most useless currency in the world froze the bank accounts of some young people who played active roles in organising the ENDSARS protests. That is a fundamental sign of weakness.

The buhari in aso rock does not meet the press. He is either weak or totally brain dead.

Sanwoolu left Lagos twice to brief the Buhari in aso rock about what is going on in Lagos. That is even beyond weakness. That will be my next story. THE DEAD PRESIDENCY!

The Invincible Presidency

By Adeola Aderounmu

The Nigerian presidency in 2020, take it or leave it, is a make believe.

Have you ever seen anywhere in the world where the country is under fire, where there is chaos, riot, murder, assassinations, protests and to cap it all, full-blown terrorism and all the president of the country can do is to prepare himself for a recorded television broadcast?

But this is the portion of Nigerians first from 2015 to 2019 and then from 2019 till date. Don’t ask me how Nigerians, supposedly some of the most intelligent people in the world, ended up with a moron in the seat of power. I cannot explain it all.

Truth is, all you read from the internet, all you hear on radio and television about the presidency in Nigeria are actually statements and press releases from various personal assistants attached to the office.

If you are reading this on this day 30th of october 2020 and you have thought that you have heard or listened to Buhari in the last of couple of days or weeks, you are a gullible person. It is about time you start thinking, critically.

Nigerian burns. Massive protests. Terrorists own part of the North. There is unrest. People are hungry. There was almost a state of anarchy. There was nobody to come out to address the press and answer questions about their stewardship in office.

The Nigerian presidency as far as l am concerned is VACANT. Whoever occupies that post does not exist in our physical realm.

Look at this situation. Even in an organisation as small as a primary school, whenever something goes wrong, the headmistress or headmaster summons the teachers and then the pupils. There is an assembly and there is an interaction between the pupils and the leadership of the school. In any organisation at all, the head comes out, stands out, takes responsibilities, ask questions, answer questions.

When was the last time “a Buhari” faced the press for 30 minutes? 5 minutes?

The last time l saw a certain “Buhari” faced the press, it did not end well. At that point, at one of the most embarrassing moments of our lives as Nigerians, we saw a “Buhari” who owned cows but didn’t know the meaning of animal husbandry.

That Buhari is either braindead or perfectly senile.

A man who has no brain, no memory and no consciousness of self and environs is who you want me to believe is in charge of the “presidency” in Abuja, Nigeria. I am sorry, you are mad.

As my readers would have observed in recent times, l have not been blogging frequently in recent months.

The reason is because l have other things that have taken my time. However, l am very active on instagram and twitter because they are microblogs and relatively easier to access and make comments/observations.

I won’t write longer on this topic.

But l want you to stop ascribing all the press releases on the internet and media house to Buhari. The Buhari in Abuja is not in charge of Nigeria. For the majority of the time, it is the press secretary and robotic special assistants that meet and fashion press releases.

The most puzzling thing is: on whose account are they dishing out all the PRESS RELEASES, comments, reactions and statements attributed to the president/presidency? You need to be worried.

APC and PDP are birds of same feathers and agents of the same criminal organisation. Therefore, you won’t hear the truth soon, not as long as these 2 criminal organisations run the show in Nigeria.

I will also like to let you know that expressing shock about the people who rule Nigeria is actually the main shock for me.

In Nigerian politics, all the politicians are criminals.

In Nigerian politics, even if you are not a criminal, you are on your way to becoming one.

The unitary system of government is an embarrassment to the intellectuality of the black race. In Nigeria, it shows lack of common sense and absence of common good.

No country in the world can prosper under a unitary system of government.

It is worse when the custodians are self-serving, moronic, selfish, wicked and demonic.

What is the way out?

Abolish the unitary system of government (and it wouldn’t matter anyway if there is a brain-dead president anywhere or not).

Let the regions or nations within Nigeria manage their resources. This will boost competitions between the different regions. The citizens or people in the regions that fail to develop will react quickly to bad governance or corruption.

Nigeria was at her best before the 1966 coups because no region wanted to be left behind.

I hear the youths of/in Nigeria are planning to revolt massively in 2023. Good idea. Let me predict that if that happens (l have my doubts about a lot of things, including the oneness of Nigeria actually) the youths would go into the cycle of idiocy, corruption and they would massively contribute to the underdevelopment of Nigeria.

The unitary system of government will turn good men and women to demons and morons. This has been the case since the 1966 coups. Unless the system is changed or reverted, all other attempts are cosmetics and dead on arrival.

For now, let us focus on why Nigeria has an invincible presidency. The unitary system of government is loaded with deceits, lies, corruption and a compelling tendency to turn willing men and women to demons and monsters. Ask Femi Adesina. Ask Garba. Ask Tolu, and ask Onochie.
