“Nigeria President a Titular President – By Bayo Oluwasanmi

Nigeria has been robbed of the last
vestiges of human civilization.
Reduced from a ruler to a platform of
political platitudes, Mr. Jonathan has
become a titular head of a nation full of
zombies with testimony of ancient evils.
President Jonathan’s bone chillingly stupid
deaf tone silence and “I don’t give a
damn attitude” approach to the problems
of the country is undeniably the catalyst
that has already made Nigeria history.
According to the federal government
chief statistician, 38.24 million Nigerians
are unemployed. Minister of state Lawal
Yerima Ngama said 350,000 registered
companies in Nigeria evade tax. N7.935
billion is said to be missing from the
revenue collected by the Nigerian
Customs Service.
Excerpt from a gory story written by
Simon Utebor in the Punch of May 16
headlined “Philanthropist donates toilets
to Police” is worth quoting:
“Chairman of Mello’s Group of Companies
Mr. Abimbola Ayo-Yusuf, has donated a
block of toilets and bathrooms to the
Bode Thomas Police Station, Surulere,
Lagos.”
“Yusuf said the facilities were to
ameliorate the sufferings of men and
officers of the police and detainees of the
station. He also said the gesture was to
discourage the detainees from throwing
their faeces into the nearby canal.”
Nigeria’s store of provision has been
destroyed through jealousy and revenge
of the contending factions. All the horrors
of starvation are killing our people. A
measure of gari is now selling for a talent.
Great numbers of our people steal at
night to provide for their basic needs.
Many have been seized and put to death
with cruel torture. Those who escaped
were robbed of the little possessions they
had.
There is no hospital in the country that is
built for human race. Our people are
dying in droves of preventive and
treatable diseases.
The rulers, fortified with looted money
from our treasury, like beheaded chickens
rush to overseas infirmaries for simple
ailments such as running nose, cough, or
headache!
The most inhuman tortures were inflicted
by those in power to further pummel the
want-stricken people. These cruelties
were frequently practiced by those who
were well fed, and who were merely
desirous of laying up a store of provision
for the future.
Thousands of our people perished from
famine, disease, and other manmade
disasters. Natural affection seemed to
have been destroyed. Husbands robbed
their wives, and wives their husbands.
Nigerians have become refugees in their
own country fleeing from persecution,
poverty, and pestilence. A once proud
people have become the laughing stock of
the world.
Children are seen snatching food from the
mouths of their aged parents. Thousands
upon thousands of Nigerians perished
every day. Above the sound of terror,
voices were heard shouting: “Ichabod!” –
Nigeria’s glory has departed!
Pensioners, widows, the jobless, the
diseased, the hungry, and the homeless
screaming and wailing while expiring with
hunger and poverty rallied their
remaining strength to utter a cry of
anguish and desolation.
Men and women, old and young, priests,
the innocent, and those who pleaded for
mercy were hewn down in indiscriminate
carnage. The number of the slain
exceeded the slayers.
Not long ago, President Jonathan in an
illegal secret deal with an Israeli company
contracted a cyber spy program at a
sacrilegious cost of $40 million to
obliterate every trace of dissent from our
citizens.
Everything it deems “heretical” whether
persons or writings, the Jonathan
administration sought to destroy.
Expressions of doubt or questions as to
the authority of his administration’s
excesses, ineptitude, insensitivity,
aloofness, and corruption were enough to
forfeit the life of critics.
The long enjoyed freedom of conscience
that has become one of our most
precious and treasured rights is being
disturbed and of a fact dismantled before
our very eyes.
War and intrigue, and deception have
been employed by the Jonathan regime
against people who dared to challenge
their brutality, looting, wickedness, and
preying on the poor and the powerless.
“Harder they come, harder they fall,”
Jimmy Cliff sings of the oppressors.
“Oppressors that are trying to keep me
(us) down… making me (us) feel like
clown (s) … and they think they have got
me (us) on the run … I say forgive them
Lord for they know not what they have
done …and we’re going to get my (our)
share right now of what’s mine (ours) …
harder they come, harder they fall.”
For as wolves hunting their prey did the
enemies of truth pursue those of us who
dared to claim freedom of speech,
freedom of expression, and freedom of
the press.
It is only in a spirit of free inquiry that
desirable learning can take place. If you
believe that your belief or opinion is
based on reason, you should support it by
argument.
But if your belief is based on blind loyalty,
your argument will go against you. You’ll
realize that argument is useless, and will
therefore resort to force either in the
form of persecution or by stunting or
distorting the minds of the people
especially the naïve and the gullible.
Matters of truth are to be ascertained and
verified by observation and proof, not by
relying on ancient propaganda scoundrels.
For President Jonathan and his men and
women in government, I’ll like to remind
them of the Romish leader’s warning to
similar oppressors of his time: “If you will
not receive brethren who bring you
peace, you shall receive enemies who will
bring you war…”
Just look at the time … and just look at
Nigeria today… Nigeria is already history!
*** Darkness cannot drive out darkness!
