Nigeria is a nation that never ceases to amaze her observers via her contradictions, wrong choices and double standards. One of such examples, is the case of the Late Islamist, genocidist and despot with fake anti-corruption credentials, the late General Mohammadu Buhari. Here was a typical example of who should never have been elected President of that geo-political contraption known as Nigeria based on his antecedents for criminal activities. But this is NIGERIA, a country that plays by no rules other than the might of the Fulani masters, an uncivilized, vamparic racewhich spews out a nation of contradictions, wrong choices and double standards. The consequences of the decisions of the country and its hapless citizens are there for all to see: a failed nation, a country that never works, a state that is unable to perform even the most basic of stately responsibilities to her citizens. How low can a country sink?
the chosen race and religion: Fulani and Islam. Merit was completely jettisoned. Biafrans from whose lands the oil and gas flow were not good enough to man the petroleum sector.
The consequences of these contractionary and authocratic policies on Nigeria soon became obvious to all. Civil strife, killings, depression in the economy wrongly referred to by the state and its apologists as recession, massive unemployment and emigration of Nigerians to the nooks and crannies of the world by any means possible, became the norm. Today, Nigerians are reaping the full consequences of their wrong choice in 2015, electing a treasonable felon as their President.
The miserable political and economic performances of the late General Mohammadu Buhari were exactly the same thing Nigerians experienced during his first unfortunate ursurpation of power in 1983 via a military coup. He killed several people extra-judicially, executing some of them (mainly Biafrans) for non-existent crimes, created his own courts, handed out ridiculous jail terms for former political office holders (some were jailed for 100 or 150 years depending on the part of the country they came from), jailed journalists who published the truth and destroyed the thriving economy he met. Nigerian intellectuals and professionals ran for their dear lives to all parts of the world.
General Mohammadu Buhari could not have claimed in 2015 that he was not prepared for power, after all hustles for power for twelve solid years from 2003 and by 2011 he had become exasperated threatening all and sundry during one of his campaigns in December 2010, against former President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Johnathan that "baboons and monkeys would soak in blood if he did not win the election in 2011'' .
True to his words, eight hundred and fifty Nigerians in the Northern part of the country, mainly youth corpers from Biafraland, lost their lives to Mohammadu Buhari's foot soldiers when he lost that Presidential election to Goodluck Johnathan.
In 2015 when the genocidist won the election following the manipulation by Professor Jega's chairmaned electoral commission, some people expected peace. But that was not to be as immediately Buhari got into power, he deployed his military apparatus and personnel to the creeks of Akwa Ibom State, to kill villagers and intimidate those that remained so that he and his Fulani brethren from all of Africa can have easy access to the oil and gas that flow from Biafraland. Radio Biafra London was the only media that alerted Biafrans about this sacrilege.
What is the lesson here? The lesson is that democratic power should never be entrusted to he who does not believe in democracy.
The case of Mohammadu Buhari and his Fulani people is that of a race that is averse to democracy and development. They are more concerned about the Islamization of the geopolitical space or contraption called Nigeria and nothing else. No wonder, the country posts assumed some of the worst socio-economic indices in the world and is currently ranked the world's capital of poverty.
What Nigerians will do to the Fulanis and their hegemonic control over their affairs is up to them but as for Biafrans, our decision is clear: we are recovering our stolen sovereignty and also building a first rate nation we can proudly proclaim to be ours and that of our descendants, that we did it! Oh yes!!
