|Nigeria, Heading For The Rocks: The Facts Laid Bare! by tomakint: 4:25pm On Jun 14, 2012|
My 21 Observations and Suggestions
This piece is meant to be meditatively studied and not to just glance through. It is not mere effusions from a confused mind, but that of a sound and discerning mind. It is the absolute truth about our great country, Nigeria. Initially, we as a division have our respective peculiar problems. Eventually, we became a unit as a result of the unfortunate, ill-planned, directionless amalgamation of 1914. Yet, our problem remains! There is no shame in towing the path of bravery by going our separate ways before things get out of hand (of course, the ominous clouds have started gathering foretelling what will unfold soon). The North have their peculiar orientations totally different from the South’s orientations, all we need do is to respect one another and come to a point of realization that when we part ways it will be a sign of mutual understanding for our different ideologies. Those who express fears that parting ways may throw each divided parts into more chaotic situations are not good students of history. Many countries have towed this path of destiny and just with a little perseverance are the better for it today – Nigeria will not be an exception!
We don’t have to wait and fold our hands as if all is well. I do not intend to insult the intelligence of any tribe, unfortunately anytime issues of this nature is reared up, it will always appear some peoples’ intelligence are being attacked. The subject of this piece is about our separation that can be done meaningfully through CONFAB – REFERENDUM, no point shedding blood, we can separate PEACEFULLY!
Observation 1: Definitely, Nigeria can never be one no matter how hard we try (ironically, for we to grow we need to be one). We will definitely understand the language of being one when we part ways on the long run, because we were not meant to be together in the first place.
Observation 2: Southern part and Northern part have to go their separate ways for any meaningful developments (be it structural, intellectual to take place). Northern part (especially the Northwest and Northeast) and Southern part are like water and oil, they can never mix together.
Observation 3: 2015 will definitely be too hot to handle for the governments security wise. Nigeria may likely open a new vista in her convoluted political history.
Observation 4: This politics of “it’s my turn to rule” is purely demonic and undemocratic”, as there have never been any reasonable and meaningful lasting developments targeted towards the many citizens of this country especially from “rulers” in the Northern parts.
Observation 5: Democracy will never fix our problems; we are different from the United States. This is a wasteful system of government as far as we can see, compared to even the military (before you axe me check your facts on this and you will be amazed at how extravagant our incompetent politicians are). Of course, I am not supporting the military comeback. A Sovereign National Conference or Confederacy (through Regionalism as practiced in the 60s may just be appropriate).The warning is this; Jonathan may just be the last Nigeria’s President!
Observation 6: Corruption gives room for all manners of shortcuts to “making it big” within the cycle of governments, hence we are at a standstill.
Observation 7: Our so-called leaders are not sincere with the led, the more reason we are not developing.
Observation 8: Good roads, stable power supply, vibrant agriculture, efficient securities at all levels, well-planned job creations and efficient educational and financial systems must be integrated into the system if Nigeria must attain stability in the near future.
Observation 9: Our judicial system is a farce and a great mockery to what genuine democracy is. Judgments have been slaughtered on the platter of MONEY – A big shame!
Observation 10: We are too fearful to take our destinies in our hands as a nation and this has affected virtually all the citizens of this great country.
Observation 11: We are fond of celebrating mediocrity and glorifying stupidity in almost all our endeavours towards nation-building.
Suggestions – Fielding qualified personnel to place of authorities and not political appointees is the answer to this anomaly.
Observation 12: The only thing constant in Nigeria right from her independence is LIES! No nation can develop on the foundation of LIES – I am still standing to be corrected!
Observation 13: Going our separate ways is not the end of the world, only greedy, blood-thirsty, visionless leaders always drums up support for our “unity that is not united”. We have been in the wilderness of this deception for too long, let the North go their way and the South go their way and we shall see the light we have been craving for instead of this groping in the dark.
Observation 14: Only “very few” Religion leaders in the country know the mind of God for this country and are still on the path of truth.
Suggestions – May God continue to keep this “very few” (Amen).
Observation 15: About 90% of Nigerians understand the language of FORCE; about 70% are ravished by POVERTY, about 60% of the working force is JOBLESS, about 40% are criminally-minded when not in PRIVILEGED POSITIONS/ PLACE OF OPPORTUNITIES, about 90% are criminally-minded when in PRIVILEGED POSITIONS/ PLACE OF OPPORTUNITIES. Indeed, danger looms in the not-too-far distance.
Suggestions – Point 8 should be strictly considered!
Observation 16: It is very certain that there is no LOVE among us, hence, the lack of unity. The more reason we cannot continue to do the same thing over and over again and expect different unique results – impossible!
Observation 17: Political parties are unique instruments of polarity as far as “Nigerian Politics” is concerned, this we shall see before 2015 – mark my words.
Observation 18: There is nothing strange in Buhari’s utterances, that is what a typical Hausa – Fulani man is behaviourally (easily-provoked), the same applies to many of his tribesmen either in the elite class or the cattle-rearers. The only difference is that, he is not a pretender and he got the spheres to express himself while his other “elite tribesmen” are pretenders and extremely dangerous – Jonathan beware!
Observation 19: There is nothing strange in Boko Haram’s activities as far as I am concerned, they believe they are championing the cause of Allah as laid bare in the Quran, and penciled down by their great Prophet, Mohammed. Remember the activities of an average Hausa – Fulani man during their many riots and how they dealt with their southern counterparts who reside in the North – wake up people!
Observation 20: Indeed there is a great confusion in the land, our leaders are just pretending to be in control, and time that heals all wounds will still be the definitive factor that will prove this noble truth!
Observation 21: There can never be PEACE in the core north why? Too many innocent bloods have been shed in that part of the country (start your personal research from 1955 and you will be amazed at the rate of the senseless killings) yet they are still incorrigible instead of them to be penitent!
Note: Only genuine prayers to God and a willing heart to turn away from these wicked acts can reverse the looming dangers – we can keep on dreaming thinking all is WELL, when indeed all is not WELL!
