Useless Politicians = Recession Forever

By Adeola Aderounmu

Nigerian politicians, the lawmakers to be precise, are taking delivery of cars estimated to cost the country N3.6 billion.

If you are looking for crazy people, that is where to look. Nigerian lawmakers are mad to the core.

Nigeria is suffering from recession, caused mainly by politicians looting the country since time immemorial. Yet at a time that all monies should be directed at building the economy, some crazy people are buying cars.

They said they need the car to do official duties. Really? Is there anyone among them who does not own between 5 to 10 cars already, or more’?

I just have to stop writing now because this is one of the several things that make you conclude that Nigerian politicians are possessed by demons and greed.

I just wish they will wake up one morning and find that the people have occupied the streets and their offices. How l wish the people can stage a revolution to send all these criminals to life time in jail and then restructure the country along regionS so we can all govern ourselves in the different regions.

This social madness is unbearable!

This is nonsense and ingredients!

British Oil Thieves In Nigeria And Fake Oil Refineries

Adeola Aderounmu

It was a week when the Nigerian JTF brought the face of evil to the front pages. 2 Britons who have been involved in crude oil theft in Nigeria were apprehended and arrested. Of course, many other (local) people were arrested along with them.

The syndicate offered N20 million bribe to the authorities, but this time there was no way ahead as the bribes and even more offers of bribes were rejected.

These britons must have been in this business for sometime because they kept saying that they will get out of the mess by offering bribes to the commanders of the JTF.

In any case now that some of the people destroying Nigeria have been arrested, one hopes that they will face the law squarely.

The Niger Delta of Nigeria has been subjected to more than 50 years of spillage and complete mess. No one knows when the clean up will start but we know that it may take about 100 years to clean up the mess. This is a complete tragedy to the people of the Niger Delta. Their own people have failed them, the governments (state and federal) have failed them and the international community does not give a damn about them. They by themselves always support the criminals they have chosen as leaders and that falls under my definition of the Nigerian syndrome. What a dilemma!

There are probably thousands of illegal bunkering and even more fake oil refinery in the Niger Delta of Nigeria.

Complete tragedy and absolute mess!

Nigerian Ghost Workers

By Adeola Aderounmu

One of the craziest news from Nigeria this morning is the alarm raised in Akwa Ibom that there are at least 8000 ghost workers in the state civil service.

This is not news in Nigeria.

Over the years ghost workers have always existed and they will always exist for as long as corruption and stupidity remain unpunished.

The economy department of the various Ministries know about the ghsot workers. The various heads of departments know about the ghost workers.

The truth is that the human resource department, the economy department and the head of the various department must know about the criminality in Akwa Ibom state. It is a national trend in Nigeria.

These funds are what some people have used to build houses, build hotels and buy fancy cars. They claim that ministry work is lucrative because they steal from government the same way government itself steal from the people.

Don’t be fooled! The 8000 ghost workers in Akwa Ibom are not going to disappear. What will happen with this open knowledge is that the people who will benefit from the scandal and eventual cover-up will increased.

Ghost workers don’t disappear in Nigeria. They will always be there as long as the people who are responsible from this case are not dismissed and made to refund the money they have stolen. Their properties will not be confiscated, instead they will be promoted.

Most of the people who rule in Nigeria are thieves and criminals, and this is why people get promoted even when they are known to be crooks and boot lickers.

Nigeria is no ordinary country!

Crazy things are normal in Nigeria.

By tomorrow nobody will be talking about this news and the scandal will continue.

Change will come with functional judiciary and sincere police force. Change will come when a radical wind of change blows acrosss Nigeria. Change will come when people can put patriotism above self, and when merits and dignity are attached to appointments and labour.

For now, the madness continues, unabated!

People are stealing right from the presidency down to the last man in the council, ghost workers are just by-products of the systemic decadence.

Criminals Ruling Nigeria, the most corrupt country in the world

By Adeola Aderounmu

The audience in the video are fools. They should have thrown stones and shoes at this criminal and start criminal prosecution as soon as he is bumdeled out of the hall.

But in Nigeria, the people have been so brain washed and brain damaged that they probably thought what he said is normal and heroic.

Nigeria in my candid opinion remains the most corrupt country in the world. That is a view I am not ready to shy or walk away from.

I read a piece recently that perfectly buttress my points over the years.

Even the ruler of Nigeria confirmed this the other week when he forgave or granted a pardon to his brother in crime. The bottom line is that they are all criminals.

The end to corruption in Nigeria is not in sight. As we write or speak illegal oil bunkering continues and the legal revenue earned by Nigeria is already been shared into private accounts directly and indirectly.

This man here boasted having rigged elections in his home state. By now he should been arrested by the police. But in Nigeria criminals who portray themselves as politicians are above the law. On top of that the Nigerian police, just like NEPA is one of the several useless public institutions in Nigeria.

Thieves on thieves, Ezekwesili, Yar Adua and Jonathan

By Adeola Aderounmu

The former minister of education Obiangeli Ezekwesili accused Yar Adua and Jonathan of squandering USD 67 billion in foreign reserves. Of course that is so true. In fact the amount may be a fraction of what Yar Adua and Jonathan stole or squandered.
The greater shame is that the stealing is on-going. It is not as if the looting stopped. Nigeria as a country is perpetually bleeding from stolen monies and treasuries being emptied by government and public officials and local and foreign contractors.

Now that the government of Jonathan has responded by telling us that Ezekwesili also looted or mismanaged N459 Billion when she was the Minister of education. That is also correct.
Like I have stated on my blog a thousand times, 99.9% of Nigerian politicians and public servants are looters and thieves.
The process of prosecution is either slow or non-existent at every given point in time. The primary aim of Nigerian politics is for looting. This will continue for eternity as long as the people remain disconnected from governance and as long as the unitary system of government that permits it remains.
Looting and stealing will remain the primary aim of Nigerian politics as long as people get away with looted funds as we have seen since 1960.
Nigerian politics is the greatest hidden tragedy on the face of earth.
There is no end because everybody in politics is corrupt. Even those who appear to be working hard are looting and that is well known.
So yea, Yar Adua and Jonathan looted the reserves. Ezekwesili looted the Ministry of Education. Others are looting wherever they find themselves.
This is Nigeria and it is allowed to be corrupt and above the law. Ask the Babangidas, the Obasanjos and the rest who have bleeded Nigeria and Nigerians.
This is how they do it in Nigeria! So please go to hell!
